DT obits[edit]

Good to see you back starting new articles the obits, lest we forget. When people say there is no hurry, perhaps they are wrong after all. Edwardx (talk) 18:22, 3 September 2015 (UTC)

They are so stubby, I fear they may evaporate overnight. Apparently there is more than one military Hurry (or Urry): Philafrenzy (talk) 19:52, 3 September 2015 (UTC)
The cover for Hurry Up Harry amused me. How pubs have changed, those that are left anyway. I don't miss people smoking at all. Edwardx (talk) 21:28, 3 September 2015 (UTC)
I don't think you frequent the same sort of pubs as Sham 69. I have 11 articles so far from my brief visit to Totteridge church. Many more no doubt if I had time to do them. Very gloomy inside which hindered my photography but bright outside. Descendants of Samuel Pepys buried there. Philafrenzy (talk) 21:36, 3 September 2015 (UTC)
My short visit to St Peter's Church, Petersham has yielded several articles, and it wasn't even possible to go inside. You don't have to be a goth to enjoy graveyards. Edwardx (talk) 23:05, 3 September 2015 (UTC)
Goths don't enjoy anything, even graveyards.
Do you have photo-editing software that converts this to this? Very useful. Philafrenzy (talk) 23:10, 3 September 2015 (UTC)
How did you do that - is it a secret? Do I need to swear an oath or is it another special handshake? Edwardx (talk) 13:23, 4 September 2015 (UTC)
It's a standard feature of my photo-editing software, that I have had for about 10 years, that I have just worked out how to use. See the history of uploads here:,_St._James's_Street_01.JPG
It (PhotoImpact) places a cross in each corner and you drag them in or out to remove the distortion caused by your position. I am sure it is standard on most such programs. Philafrenzy (talk) 13:49, 4 September 2015 (UTC)
Had a quick shufti at your latest new articles, only to find you've actually done a quick Shufti. Edwardx (talk) 21:44, 10 September 2015 (UTC)
Wasn't sure whether to use the nickname. One doesn't know how it came about and given the era ... Anyway, apparently he was OK with it. Philafrenzy (talk) 21:54, 10 September 2015 (UTC)
I like Shufti - WP needs a bit of jollity. All too often its too humdrum. Edwardx (talk) 23:53, 10 September 2015 (UTC)
Clive Anderson was once asked if anything funny had ever happened to him in court. He said not really. Philafrenzy (talk) 23:55, 10 September 2015 (UTC)

A. E. Sewell has been nominated for Did You Know[edit]

Orphan tags[edit]

Not sure why AWB has suddenly started adding orphan tags to articles that aren't orphans. I have also realised that something isn't quite right. It does not appear that the orphan policy has changed yet again. Schwede66 20:02, 16 September 2015 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Craven Street[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Craven Street has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

unsourced and no indication of WP:notability. Wikipedia is not a directory of street names

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

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

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. noq (talk) 22:15, 19 September 2015 (UTC)

Help us improve wikimeets by filling in the UK Wikimeet survey![edit]

Hello!

All questions are optional, and it will take about 10 minutes to complete. Please fill it in at:

A Dobos torte for you![edit]

Ernst Beyeler[edit]

Looking at the art trade again. You might be interested in sharing a DYK on Ernst Beyeler, which I've just started. In their 2010 obituary, the New York Times called him "Europe’s pre-eminent dealer in modern art". Edwardx (talk) 10:26, 25 September 2015 (UTC)

Indeed. I have three "under construction"s I need to do as well, including Soho's Walker's Court. Philafrenzy (talk) 10:46, 25 September 2015 (UTC)
Which I will have time to do now I have added pictures to Soho walk-up, Sex shop, and Massage parlor. Top pic in each case. Delete your browsing history after viewing. Philafrenzy (talk) 13:35, 25 September 2015 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for September 25[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Walker's Court, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Paul Raymond (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.

Deletion discussion about Judith Jesch[edit]

Hello, Philafrenzy,

I wanted to let you know that there's a discussion about whether Judith Jesch should be deleted. Your comments are welcome at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Judith Jesch .

If you're new to the process, articles for deletion is a group discussion (not a vote!) that usually lasts seven days. If you need it, there is a guide on how to contribute. Last but not least, you are highly encouraged to continue improving the article; just be sure not to remove the tag about the deletion nomination from the top.

Thanks, Wikigyt@lk to M£ 23:45, 30 September 2015 (UTC)

You're invited! Women in Red World Virtual Edit-a-thon on Women in Architecture[edit]

You are invited! Join us remotely!

World Virtual Edit-a-thon on Women in Architecture

Women in Architecture Guggenheim Logo.jpg
Love Heart KammaRahbek.SVG
  • Dates: 15 to 25 October 2015
  • Location: Worldwide/virtual/online event
  • Host/Facilitator: Women in Red (WiR): Did you know that only 15% of the biographies on Wikipedia are about women? WiR focuses on "content gender gap". If you'd like to help contribute articles on women and women's works, we warmly welcome you!
  • Sponsor: Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in association with Beverly Willis Architecture Foundation, Women in Design, and Wikiproject Women Wikipedia Design
  • Event details: This is a virtual edit-a-thon hosted by WiR in parallel with a series of "physical" Guggenheim edit-a-thons. It will allow all those keen to improve Wikipedia's coverage of women in architecture and design to participate. The campaign aims to further the goals of Ada Lovelace Day for STEM, and Art+Feminism for art, in a field that by its nature combines both. As the virtual edit-a-thon stretches over a week and a half, inexperienced participants will be able to draw on the assistance of more experienced editors while creating, translating or improving articles on women who are (or have been) prominent in this field. All levels of Wikipedia editing experience are welcome.
  • RSVP and learn more: →here←--Ipigott (talk) 09:19, 3 October 2015 (UTC)
