DYK for Tamale pie[edit]

Updated DYK query.svg On 17 July 2016, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Tamale pie, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that tamale pie (pictured) was invented in the United States, and has been described as a comfort food? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Tamale pie. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Tamale pie), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.

Template question[edit]

Hi, NA1000, I'd like to add a heading at the top of my user page that is similar and/or the same design as the one on Coffee's user page which I really like, provided it would be allowed, but I need to change some of the icons and links. Can you point me in the right direction for designing or utilizing an existing template that would serve my purpose? Thank you in advance....Atsme📞📧 18:11, 20 July 2016 (UTC)

Hi Atsme: What, you don't want to rip stuff from my user page? 718smiley.svg The easy way is to copy content from Coffee's user page to your sandbox, being sure to use proper copy attribution per WP:ATTREQ and then modify it. When you're ready, you can then publish it to your user page, again using proper copy attribution. Easy peasy. North America1000 18:24, 20 July 2016 (UTC)
I probably have ripped stuff from your page in the past. *LOL* I tried looking at it in "edit mode" and the template is {{User:Chetblong/bar|#E0FFFF|#0000FF}} but all the links in the images are his links. I would like to be able to customize it to fit my user page if that's possible. I love the design. Atsme📞📧 19:27, 20 July 2016 (UTC)
@Atsme: The source code can be accessed directly here. As stated above, just copy the code to your sandbox (with proper copy attribution), modify as you'd like with new images, links, etc. Be sure to immediately remove the administrator and OTRS topicons if you do so, since you're not an admin etc., and again, be sure to use proper copy attribution in all steps. Hope this helps. North America1000 19:48, 20 July 2016 (UTC)
Ok, thank you very, very much - I never would have found it. I will also ask his permission because the last thing I would want is for him to be upset over my copying it. Atsme📞📧 20:03, 20 July 2016 (UTC)

DYK for Sirloin Stockade[edit]

Updated DYK query.svg On 21 July 2016, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Sirloin Stockade, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that the first Sirloin Stockade restaurant featured a giant 1,800-pound (820 kg) plastic ornamental cow? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Sirloin Stockade. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Sirloin Stockade), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000.

Deletion[edit]

Last year you deleted a bio on an architect and I can only image it was a mistake.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/Andrew_Benn

Clearly the decision was hasty and those commenting on the matter had little or no understanding of the architectural scene in Australia. An AIA Award of any level is considered to be prestigious and the project awarded has received huge coverage not to mention the architect himself.

This article should be recreated and more care should be taken before such bios are deleted. I would appreciate this matter being investigated. Castlemate (talk) 07:32, 23 July 2016 (UTC)

Hi Castlemate: I deleted the article based upon consensus that was formed in the deletion discussion at the time. If you feel that the subject meets notability requirements (e.g. WP:BASIC, WP:GNG, WP:CREATIVE), you can create a new article. Some of the articles you posted above are rather short, but the Daily Telegraph article provides significant coverage. Per the sources above, it seems that the subject falls a bit short of WP:BASIC, but per the AIA Award and other accomplishments the subject may have, they may qualify per WP:CREATIVE. If you create a new article, an option is to do so in draft or your user namespace and then submit it to Articles for creation, where your submission can be reviewed by an uninvolved reviewer. An easy way to do this is to place {{Userspace draft}} atop the draft page and then select the "Submit your draft for review" link. North America1000 20:09, 24 July 2016 (UTC)

Hi and thank you for responding. Some of the links are short as they are links to lengthy radio programmes etc ... does nobody investigate this sort of coverage. There may have been consensus amongst three people but no debate and no effort to even look for coverage. Those commenting don't appear to have knowledge of the area on which they were commenting. Why was it not relisted for further discussion? To suggest that I need to go to enormous effort to recreate a bio of a suitably notable architect is I feel rude and arrogant. I don't wish to accuse you of bad faith but a little effort on your behalf and a little contrition might help in this instance. As you deleted the bio I would request that maybe you recreate it and I will improve it if that is necessary. I presume the all powerful with the ability to delete have the power to dredge the system and repair. Thanks for your interest in this issue and help to date. Castlemate (talk) 01:29, 25 July 2016 (UTC)

Castlemate: If you'd like, I can userfy the deleted article to your userspace at User:Castlemate/Andrew Benn, where you can perform whatever improvements you deem necessary to the article to qualify the subject's notability. North America1000 03:14, 25 July 2016 (UTC)

Thank you ... that would be a great result. Maybe we can all learn some lessons from this episode. Castlemate (talk) 03:41, 25 July 2016 (UTC)

Castlemate: The content has been userfied to User:Castlemate/Andrew Benn and User talk:Castlemate/Andrew Benn, respectively. North America1000 03:52, 25 July 2016 (UTC)

Close[edit]

Hope you're having a fun weekend. Noticed you extended the AfD for Kanwal Ameen a while back, then Coffee extended it after you, so on the 20th I requested a close on his TP since it was the 7 day mark. It appears Coffee hasn't been active since the 19th so I was hoping you could close it. It has been 10 days since Coffee's extension and it appears the discussion has dried up. Thanks in advance. Atsme📞📧 18:21, 23 July 2016 (UTC)

@Atsme: I may not become involved in closure of the discussion; working on other matters at this time. North America1000 19:57, 24 July 2016 (UTC)

Mailing List[edit]

Hi Northamerica1000! Hope you are doing well. Just a tiny request for you. Please may you add me to your mailing list?? Much appreciated! --Class455fan1 (talk) 22:38, 23 July 2016 (UTC)

@Class455fan1: Yes check.svg Done. I haven't been using the list lately; it's more of a way for me to keep track of editors I have interacted with in various manners, etc., without having to watchlist all of those user pages. North America1000 19:56, 24 July 2016 (UTC)

List of street foods[edit]

Thanks again for all your work on List of street foods. Among other things, I think those "street cred" footnotes are a big plus. The article is really shaping up nicely. 🌮 Mudwater (Talk) 22:32, 24 July 2016 (UTC)

@Mudwater: Thanks for your work on the article as well; much appreciated. North America1000 22:35, 24 July 2016 (UTC)
@Mudwater: Also, since you're a foodie, check out WP:NEWFOOD for new Wikipedia Food and drink articles. North America1000 23:09, 24 July 2016 (UTC)
