Five minutes to help make WikiProjects better[edit]


First, on behalf of WikiProject X, thank you for trying out the WikiProject X pilot projects. I would like to get some anonymous feedback from you on your experience using the new WikiProject layout and tools. This way, we will know what we did right, and if we did something horribly wrong, we can try to fix it. This feedback won't be associated with your username, so please be completely honest. We are determined to improve the experience of Wikipedians, and your feedback helps us with that. (You are also welcome to leave non-anonymous feedback at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject X.)

Please complete the survey here. The survey has two parts: the first part asks for your username, while the second part contains the survey questions. These two parts are stored separately, so your username will not be associated with your feedback. There are only nine questions and it should not take very long to complete. Once you complete the survey I will leave a handwritten note on your talk page as a token of my appreciation.

Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you, Harej (talk) 17:49, 2 September 2015 (UTC)

Hello! Just sending a reminder to complete the survey linked above. (This is the only reminder I'll send, I promise.) Let me know on my talk page if you have any questions. Thank you!!! Harej (talk) 22:20, 15 September 2015 (UTC)

History of Roman Catholicism in Belize[edit]

Couldn't you tolerate a slightly larger map since it gets fuzzy when compressed so small, and readers need to easily locate and refer to it throughout the long article: it really is central to the whole.jzsj 22:10, 8 September 2015 (UTC)

@Jzsj: I changed it to 350px which seems to work OK. If you saved the map as a PNG or SVG instead of a JPG it would scale a lot better and not look so fuzzy. Kaldari (talk) 22:21, 8 September 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for the tip!jzsj 22:42, 8 September 2015 (UTC)

why 1925?[edit]

Frida Kahlo. explain why.--Wuerzele (talk) 05:21, 10 September 2015 (UTC)

@Wuerzele: The section covers Kahlo's bus accident which happened in 1925. Kaldari (talk) 05:33, 10 September 2015 (UTC)

Help please.[edit]

I've placed this section on my own talk page but I don't know who would check there to answer it.

Please help me with some of these directives in Commons OTRS:

In uploading a photo for which another is sending in the permission slip, where do I put the tag subst:OP?

Do I understand that the owner does not send to OTRS but simply to

If the photo was previously deleted for lack of proper tag then does the copyright owner add the OTRS to this address? Does this vary with the time since deletion, and how does one determine what procedure to follow? If I cannot locate the correspondence number can you locate the deleted photo by the file name? If it's been some time should I just upload it like a new file?

Is the full header something like File:xxx.png, or what is it? How does this differ from the link to the image in commons?

Where do I place the previously exchanged correspondence when uploading the photo, and is this required? What if the correspondence was by phone?

I assume that if the copyright form is properly filled out that the author does include the image information on the origin of it (source) and authorized by the copyright license (which should be in the email), or is this something else?

Do you ever prefer to upload the photos yourself since they are attached to the permissions slip?

If I have uploaded an original photo and then improved on it, can I request the original be removed and links transferred to the improved version, or do you prefer I just leave both in Wiki Commons?

Thanks for all your help! jzsj 21:49, 9 September 2015 (UTC)Jzsj (talk)Jzsj (talk) 06:32, 13 September 2015 (UTC)

Moving Module:Citation/CS1[edit]

Hello Kaldari. You requested a move of this file at Module talk:Citation/CS1#Requested move 9 September 2015. Since seven days have run, an admin could decide to close the discussion and perform the move. But there is a scary-looking warning at Module:Citation/CS1 that this module is used in 2.6 million articles. Do you work on modules? In your opinion, should the renaming be tested in a sandbox before being done? Thanks, EdJohnston (talk) 02:18, 17 September 2015 (UTC)

I was wondering if protests make something notable or only based the coverage it gets. There was a book launch [48] and a translation author was asked not to come because she is a woman and an organization prohibits their holy men from looking at women. She was offended and there was some public outcry. Is this considered something that is notable in the book page, organization page, somewhere else or just not notable?

Disambiguation link notification for September 29[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Scissors, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Shears (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Hi Kaldari,

Since you are a computer expert, I have a question:

On Japanese Wikipedia, let's say if a user tries to create a 1-2 sentence stub page, then their system would automatically not save the article and displays this message instead:



ウィキペディアにおけるひとつの記事として求められる文章量に達していない可能性があります。 Wikipedia:スタブを読んで、文章量をもう少し増やしてから投稿してください。 現在の文章量で十分であると考えられる場合、もう一度投稿ボタンを押せばこのまま作成することも可能です。"

It roughly translates as: "It was determined that the article text content you are trying to create is too little. It did not reach the minimum text requirements for new articles on [Japanese] Wikipedia. Please read our Wikipedia:stub policy, and try to post with a little more words to increase the amount of text content. If the text content is considered to be sufficient, it will then be possible to create this article by pressing the Save button again. "

Could you show me how they did automated that and how I can implement this on another Wikipedia language edition? Thanks. --Chrysolophus pictus (talk) 21:48, 30 September 2015 (UTC)

@Chrysolophus pictus: It was most likely done using the AbuseFilter extension. The interface for this can be accessed at Special:AbuseFilter on any wiki. Kaldari (talk) 05:32, 1 October 2015 (UTC)

First Presbyterian Church (Nashville, Tennessee) to be merged with Downtown Presbyterian Church (Nashville)[edit]

Hello. It looks like the First Presbyterian Church (Nashville, Tennessee) is just another name for the Downtown Presbyterian Church (Nashville). Should we not merge the first article with the listed church building?Zigzig20s (talk) 20:35, 1 October 2015 (UTC)

@Zigzig20s: Possibly. It's a bit confusing since the official First Presbyterian Church (congregation) still exists, but at a different location. I have no idea how this sort of thing is normally handled. Might be good to ask at Wikipedia:WikiProject Christianity. Kaldari (talk) 20:53, 1 October 2015 (UTC)
In that case, we could keep both articles. Where is the First Presbyterian Church located now? You would need to expand on that.Zigzig20s (talk) 20:55, 1 October 2015 (UTC)
