Autoreviewer[edit]

Hi, after seeing one of your articles at newpage patrol, I was surprised to see that an editor who has contributed quite so many articles as you hadn't already been approved as an wp:Autoreviewer. So I've taken the liberty of rectifying that. ϢereSpielChequers 22:24, 27 December 2009 (UTC)

Dammam[edit]

Hi Life of Riley

I noted that you had edited one of the contributions on the Dammam page from 78.93.165.191.

see 14:52, 22 December 2009 (hist | diff) Dammam ‎ (→Biology) and several of same date.

I am very puzzled by some of the content on this page, and in particular the section marked "Biology". What is this list about - am I missing something?

I would like to help to clarify some of the content on this page, but would appreciate your advice and help before I get involved.

Thanks

Wikiwerdna (talk) 18:13, 31 December 2009 (UTC)

  • Frankly, I have no idea what that "Biology" list means. It was not clear to me either. All that I did was to make a long, narrow list into two columns. •••Life of Riley (TC) 18:18, 31 December 2009 (UTC)

Prefontaine fountain photos[edit]

Commons:Category:Prefontaine Fountain - Jmabel | Talk 02:23, 23 February 2010 (UTC)

Thank you! The fountain has kind of gone to ruin, hasn't it. •••Life of Riley (TC) 02:51, 23 February 2010 (UTC)
Yup. I don't remember ever seeing it with water, certainly not in recent decades.
The whole area around city hall park has become, at best, a place for the leisured indigent to hang out, and at worst an open-air drug mart. The Pioneer Square neighborhood in general isn't doing to well these days. It worked pretty well when the lofts were full of artists, but now you have the untenable combination of people willing to pay a lot to live in the lofts (and to come and go by car) and the Skid Road that was always there. Artists could bridge it with a certain "urban homesteading" mentality and because they themselves became part of the street life, but the current batch of condo dwellers are taking more of a "siege" approach that doesn't seem to me to work at all. - Jmabel | Talk 23:12, 25 February 2010 (UTC)
I'm sorry to hear that. I don't recall the area being that bad when I worked in the Prefontaine Building back in the 60s. Down on First Avenue there were any number of bums homeless people, but the area on Third Avenue and Yesler was OK from my recollection.
P.S. Enjoyed your P.C. “leisured indigent”! •••Life of Riley (TC) 23:50, 25 February 2010 (UTC)
Jane Jacobs's term; about 50 years ago, she distinguished NYC parks used by the "leisured indigent" from those that harbor actual criminal activity, and argued that the city needed to make sure that in cracking down on the latter it didn't crack down on the former. - Jmabel | Talk 01:49, 27 February 2010 (UTC)

I just recently found & uploaded an image of the Prefontaine Building under construction. - Jmabel | Talk 03:29, 11 March 2010 (UTC)

Great! Thanks. I remember that Tashiro building across the street from when I worked in the Prefontaine Building. I didn't realize that it is even older than the Prefontaine Building. I remember that building because Tashiro's Hardware was in that building—this was back in ’64—and occasionally my boss would send me across the street to buy some item or other at Tashiro's. Tashiro's Hardware must have been there forever. Next time you get down to that area, check to see if Tashiro's Hardware is still in the building. I especially recall the hardware store because my boss always used to call it Shapiro's. Don't know if he was kidding, or if he had the name Shapiro on his mind, being a Jewish man.
Here is a picture of my boss, Ralph Capeluto, at Seattle Curtain Mfg. Co. in the Prefontaine Building in the 1940s. (I wasn’t there then!) This picture is from the University of Washington archives. Very much worth exploring if you have not see the archives before. •••Life of Riley (TC) 04:52, 12 March 2010 (UTC)

You are now a Reviewer[edit]

Redaktor Wikipedia 600px.png

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, will be commencing a two-month trial at approximately 23:00, 2010 June 15 (UTC).

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under flagged protection. Flagged protection is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles (talk) 03:43, 16 June 2010 (UTC)

Masyu Images Copyright Violation[edit]

I see you created .svg versions of my .png files for the sample puzzles (and their solutions) in the Heyawake and Masyu articles. I have no problem with the former, but for the latter you stripped out my copyright notices and declared the files public domain, something you do not have the right to do and is a violation of the GFDL which I provided them to Wikipedia under in the first place. I have reverted the article to use the original images, and must insist that you correct the attributions and license notifications on your versions of those two images or else delete them from Wikipedia entirely. - ZM Zotmeister (talk) 22:06, 13 September 2010 (UTC)

  • You are correct. My apologies—I put the wrong license tag on it. I am usually pretty careful about that when creating derivative works. I have corrected the error. I assure you it was an unintentional error. •••Life of Riley (TC) 01:33, 14 September 2010 (UTC)
    • Both images are still in violation at this time: the solution image shows the license, but no attribution (unlike your Heyawake image descriptions); the unsolved-puzzle image appears completely unchanged. I do appreciate your attention to this so far and have no doubt it was an honest mistake, but I still insist the errors be completely resolved. I will be happy to re-revert the article myself once you have. - ZM Zotmeister (talk) 13:19, 14 September 2010 (UTC)
      • I think I got it right this time—if not, we will try again. •••Life of Riley (TC) 15:00, 14 September 2010 (UTC)
        • It seems the German Masyu article is still using a bad version of the unsolved-puzzle image, but the solved image there and both files on the English Wikipedia are now fine. (I would have thought both articles used the same image files, but apparently that isn't the case.) I have re-reverted the English article as I said I would as it is now perfectly fine, and I'm appreciative of your work on this; if you could fix that one last version, we'd be all set. - ZM Zotmeister (talk) 17:20, 14 September 2010 (UTC)
        • UPDATE: With some assistance from an admin, I was able to figure out why the German article was showing the old version, despite it having been fixed. Everything seems to be in order now. - ZM Zotmeister (talk) 18:09, 16 September 2010 (UTC)

Madeleine (cakes)[edit]

I can understand your objecting to my not providing a "reliable" reference -- but the fact is that, in Vertigo, Madeleine's name is, indeed, a reference to Proust. It was a conscious decision, just as Gavin Elster's name was. (Elster is German for "magpie", a bird that mimics other birds.) I will try to find a written reference. WilliamSommerwerck (talk) 22:18, 27 May 2012 (UTC)

  • The point is that your information does not belong at the cakes article—it has nothing to do with those cakes. You should put the info at the article Madeleine, which is about the name. •••Life of Riley (TC) 22:23, 27 May 2012 (UTC)

Phrases such as "it should be noted" and "worth noting" are not forbidden, but are considered poor writing (unnecessary wordiness). It is best to avoid them. See Wikipedia:It should be noted.

On most keyboards, the tilde is at the top, to the left of the 1 (one) key. You will probably need to use SHIFT. However, it could be in a different place on a laptop—I don't use a laptop so I'm not sure. Just look for this symbol: ~. •••Life of Riley (TC) 00:09, 1 July 2012 (UTC)

I would like to draw your attention to the fact that the user:Historyfeelings is now adding more haux to the article. Please note the fact that the majority if not all the information added the article were added by one and only one user click. He is trying to add haux about a sectarian conflicts between muslims and christians where the allged the clan played a role which is a pathaetic and poor try to gain sympathy. The clan did not exist during that time (1860) and it is impossible for the clan to exist as it goes back to a maximum of 5-6 generations. All the sources in the article are either irrelevant or they say nothing about the clan Ayasrah, or cannot be verified, and some are simply fake. The user also added haux using a source which was earlier rejected in the discussion of Jerash article becuase the article copied the information edited by the user on the Arabic version of Wikipedia which makes it a circular reference (Please see Addustour article section in the discussion of Jerash article). The same is also applied to sakib article. Amb04 (talk) 12:49, 6 July 2012 (UTC)

Lynching of Laura and Lawrence Nelson[edit]

Hi Life of Riley, I was wondering about these coordinates you added. I'm trying to check the accuracy of everything in the article, as the sources differ a lot, and the location of the lynching is one of the things I'm having trouble pinning down. I'm wondering whether you based the coordinates on something in the article, or on an external source. SlimVirgin (talk) 00:52, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

  • I looked at the maps on Google and Bing and identified the only bridge across the North Canadian River that is about six miles west of Okemah, as stated in the article. While the old bridge in the picture is no longer there, I think it is a safe bet that the present highway bridge on Route 56 is in the same location as the old one, or very close by. I examined the satellite photos for the presence of the remnants of an old bridge—such as concrete bridge piers—that are often left behind when a bridge is demolished—but I could find none; which tells me that the new bridge was built on top of the old one. Also, note that one of the references for the article refers to the "Schoolton Road". You will find on the maps that Schoolton is about 3 miles southwest of the bridge along the same road. So, while it is not 100% proven that the old bridge was in the location given, I think it is a very high likelihood. Nevertheless, if you feel the need to remove the coordinates as unproven, I will not fight you. •••Life of Riley (TC) 02:31, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
  • What you say makes sense, thank you, and thanks for doing so much research into it. So is it correct to say "on the bridge carrying what is now State Highway 56 across the North Canadian River"? I removed that because I wasn't sure, but I'm wondering now if I should restore it, perhaps adding a "probably". SlimVirgin (talk) 03:26, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Well, strictly speaking, it is not the same bridge, but a bridge in the same location; but yes, I think you could say that. (If you look at Google Street View, you can see that it it not the same bridge.) •••Life of Riley (TC) 04:57, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

Nice to see someone else is working through the enormous coord backlog. Best, SpencerT♦C 14:14, 26 July 2015 (UTC)

  • You are welcome. Yes, there is a huge backlog, but I will continue. Of course many of them are not possible to locate. •••Life of Riley (TC) 18:01, 26 July 2015 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for August 26[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Little Marys River (Illinois), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Marys River (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.
