List of breweries in Wisconsin.[edit]

Please make the following updates: Information to be added or removed: Name of Brewery should read: The Fermentorium Beverage Co., Description should read: The brainchild of locally-raised homebrewer, The Fermentorium opened its doors in early 2016. Currently offering 24 beers on tap, the brewery also distributes to restaurants and bars all over Southeastern WI.

Explanation of issue: Incorrect, outdated information currently listed.

Thank you.

@Jandreas311: (1) Both the official website and the Facebook page have the name as The Fermentorium Brewery & Tasting Room. How about if I change the entry to say that? (2) About the other text you're suggesting, it may seem reasonable, but... If you look at the other entries in the table, and if you look at other states' "List of breweries in X" articles, you'll see that each entry tends to be super brief, and not very descriptive. I think that's because there's a strong trend on Wikipedia to avoid promoting brands or commercial establishments. That makes the lists less interesting, and in a way less useful, I admit. But at least they name each brewery and say what town they're in, and have one, or a few, footnotes linking to some kind of further information. Mudwater (Talk) 01:49, 16 January 2019 (UTC)

Thank you for your reply. Yes, using "The Fermentorium Brewery & Tasting Room" would also be ok. Could the description read Opened in 2016, 24 beers on taps along with distribution in WI.

Jandreas311 (talk) 15:36, 16 January 2019 (UTC)

@Jandreas311: I've updated the name of the brewery, and also added a second footnote. As for further enhancements to the text, in my opinion that would make it more promotional in nature than is generally accepted in the "List of breweries in X" articles. Although if it's any consolation, the two footnotes are nice write-ups, especially the one that was there before. But, it's not really up to me anyway, it's what all the other editors think. So I'd say feel free to continue the discussion in that section on the article talk page. Mudwater (Talk) 01:28, 17 January 2019 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of File:Long-Strange-Trip-soundtrack-album.jpg[edit]


The file File:Long-Strange-Trip-soundtrack-album.jpg has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Non-free album cover being used in a decorative manner in Long Strange Trip#Soundtrack album. Non-free album cover art is generally allowed to be used for primary identification purposes in stand-alone articles about albums, but its use in other articles is generally only allowed when the cover art itself is the subject of sourced critical commentary as explained in WP:NFC#cite_note-3 and the context for non-free use required by WP:NFCC#8 is evident. There is no such commentary for this particular album cover anywhere in the article, and the use of soundtrack album cover art in articles about films or TV programs is generally not allowed for this reason as explained in WP:FILMSCORE.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated files}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the file's talk page.

Please consider addressing the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated files}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and files for discussion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. -- Marchjuly (talk) 04:39, 8 February 2019 (UTC)

Dave's Pick vol. 29 info needed[edit]

Hi, Can you help with the "Production" & "Personal" section? I haven't yet received my copy and I can't find that information on-line. TraxPlayer (talk) 11:39, 8 February 2019 (UTC)

@TraxPlayer: Yes, I sure can. Done. Let me know if you have any other questions or requests. Face-smile.svg "P.S." Nice job with the footnotes. Some people don't realize it, but that's actually the most important part. Otherwise some editor might think the article does not meet the Wikipedia notability guidelines and nominate it for deletion. That actually happened with Dave's Picks Volume 17. You can see the discussion about that here, and a historical snapshot of the article here. Mudwater (Talk) 00:36, 9 February 2019 (UTC)
@TraxPlayer: The album article looks great. Nice work. Mudwater (Talk) 23:59, 9 February 2019 (UTC)

NPR Newsletter No.17[edit]

Hello Mudwater,

Discussions of interest
  • Two elements of CSD G6 have been split into their own criteria: R4 for redirects in the "File:" namespace with the same name as a file or redirect at Wikimedia Commons (Discussion), and G14 for disambiguation pages which disambiguate zero pages, or have "(disambiguation)" in the title but disambiguate a single page (Discussion).
  • {{db-blankdraft}} was merged into G13 (Discussion)
  • A discussion recently closed with no consensus on whether to create a subject-specific notability guideline for theatrical plays.
  • There is an ongoing discussion on a proposal to create subject-specific notability guidelines for chemicals and organism taxa.
  • NPR is not a binary keep / delete process. In many cases a redirect may be appropriate. The deletion policy and its associated guideline clearly emphasise that not all unsuitable articles must be deleted. Redirects are not contentious. See a classic example of the templates to use. More templates are listed at the R template index. Reviewers who are not aware, do please take this into consideration before PROD, CSD, and especially AfD because not even all admins are aware of such policies, and many NAC do not have a full knowledge of them.
NPP Tools Report
  • Superlinks – allows you to check an article's history, logs, talk page, NPP flowchart (on unpatrolled pages) and more without navigating away from the article itself.
  • copyvio-check – automatically checks the copyvio percentage of new pages in the background and displays this info with a link to the report in the 'info' panel of the Page curation toolbar.
  • The NPP flowchart now has clickable hyperlinks.
