Time-24hr/am-pm or AM-PM[edit]

I hate those AM/PM's as well. I have changed them all to 24hr in the 2010 eruptions of Mount Merapi article but as per WP styleguide -times but no doubt they will get changed. I hope I caught all your edits that I had overwritten by that large edit I did. Sorry if I missed any. Felix (talk) 20:55, 7 November 2010 (UTC)

Nice start![edit]

I saw your DYK article at DYK. The GLAM/WIKI conference opens at the British Museum on the 26th/27th so an appearance of your article would be good then. Is this OK with you? Were you aware of the BM project or is this a great coincidence? Victuallers (talk) 10:39, 20 November 2010 (UTC)

Well the Roman cavalry one looks great too ... although your DYK hook needs checking. You say Greeks v. Amazons in the hook but the article implies this is not always so. You really need a ref straight after the dykfact in the article. You might also get more clicks with the Crosby Garret picture (about 100,000 people clicked on its article without the pic!). I will try and take one for the 26th and one for the 27th if thats OK with you. I'm co-opting you onto the BM project!! You'll need one of these for your page and you deserve the other

Little observation[edit]

Hello, just a little observation: if you are making a new version of 2010_Stockholm_bombings_map_EN.gif, you could move the 1st explosion star to the other side of the junction. If we want to be precise, the explosion happened on the South East corner of Olof Palmes gata and Drottninggatan, when the star is now in the North West corner. (You can verify this on Google Maps street view. Current satellite coordinates are exactly right spot when viewed on Google Maps) I don't know if you meant to place it there, or just randomly put the star at the junction. The second explosion star is in the exact right spot, however. --hydrox (talk) 18:29, 16 December 2010 (UTC)

Hi, I just noticed the same thing. For simplicity you are welcome to use this corrected map --Profero (talk) 21:37, 16 December 2010 (UTC)
No problem, I will amend it accordingly. Thanks for your help. Prioryman (talk) 21:40, 16 December 2010 (UTC)
Fine. It was parked where the red car is on this picture.--Profero (talk) 21:44, 16 December 2010 (UTC)
All done now. By the way, if you know Swedish, I'd be happy to create a Swedish-language version - all I need to know is how to write "1st explosion" and "2nd explosion" in Swedish. Prioryman (talk) 21:45, 16 December 2010 (UTC)
"1a explosionen" "2a explosionen" --Profero (talk) 22:09, 16 December 2010 (UTC)
Or perhaps rather "1:a explosionen" "2:a explosionen"--Profero (talk) 22:10, 16 December 2010 (UTC)
Great, thanks. I've created the Swedish version of the map and added it to the Swedish article. Prioryman (talk) 22:22, 16 December 2010 (UTC)

3RR (retracted)[edit]

Haven't submitted 3RR yet and on second thought I think that I'll extend the same courtesy that other editors have extended to issues such as these and provide friendly warning. GoetheFromm (talk) 13:22, 17 December 2010 (UTC) So friendly reminder instead. By the way the reasoning for the warning is that: your edits on the 15 of December (and the 16) were largely manual reverts of others. Next, your edit summaries acknowledge that your edits were reverts. Last, your reverts totaled more than 3, despite consecutive edits. Therefore, I suspected 3RR violation or at least 'hitting' 3RR (DougWeller's terminology). Also, the frenetic quality of your suggestions at talk pages (and comments directed to you) lead me to believe that a warning is an appropriate approach to prevent hitting 3RR and/edit war. Again friendly reminder. GoetheFromm (talk) 13:22, 17 December 2010 (UTC)

I see that you already removed warning, was going to address this myself. GoetheFromm (talk) 13:23, 17 December 2010 (UTC)

Ellingham Hall[edit]

HI! Thanks for writing this article. I love english manor houses myself. Are you positive it is in Norfolk though? Most news reports say the "Suffolk mansion". I know there is a different one in Northumberland. Maybe they got it wrong.♦ Dr. Blofeld 18:16, 18 December 2010 (UTC)

They got it wrong! The mansion is just north of the Norfolk-Suffolk border. You can see this for yourself if you go to http://www.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/oswebsite/opendata/viewer/ and search for "Ellingham, Norfolk". You'll notice the dashes of the county border running along the middle of the River Waveney, just south of Ellingham. Prioryman (talk) 19:21, 18 December 2010 (UTC)

Revert on 12/19/10[edit]

Prioryman, allow me to explain my last revert. I absolutely agreed with you that there were false statements on the page. However, I disagreed with the wholesale manner in which you removed the majority of writing without editing. So, I reverted your edit, to be able to work with the original. I then immediately made revisions and wanted to save the changes, but unfortunately, my internet went and only was restored today due to weather. So, frustratingly, I could not put the revisions after my revert of your work. So very sorry. You will see that I put those changes (which I worked hard to do) today (12/20/10). Trust me, I was so worried that you would think that I was trying to keep false information, which I am certainly not interested in doing. Btw, next time you have such a concern, feel free to contact me on my talk page. GoetheFromm (talk) 19:19, 20 December 2010 (UTC)

Please see your discussion page for a reply. Prioryman (talk) 20:30, 20 December 2010 (UTC)

Disambiguation of "Ellingham Hall"[edit]

   The Dab'n facilities for "Ellingham Hall" are a mess that you're not going to be able to fix w/o admin help. (By the way, you are not the only one whose misunderstandings have contributed to the problems.) I think i'll be able to manage the fix, but you can help me with one clarification.
   I think it's clear that there are two places, each being referred to (where the respective contexts make the meaning clear) as "Ellingham Hall". And so far, each of them is being treated as worthy of a WP article. The combination of those two circumstances is what requires a Dab page. That leaves unclear one final factor: "Is there a primary topic?" As discussed at the target section of that link, "There are no absolute rules for determining" the answer. It is quite feasible to assume, for the time being and w/o prejudice to a future change, that the answer is "no", and make a change later if it seems appropriate, but if you would care to review that section and offer an opinion based on your knowledge of the subject matter, i would quite comfortably act on your opinion (without prejudice to a future contrary change!), since making the right decision now might save effort and leave a clearer record in the edit histories of the relevant pages.
   You could productively respond by adding to this section, since i'll watch changes to this talk page for a while. Thanks for your attention.
— Preceding unsigned comment added by Jerzy (talkcontribs) 00:33, 21 December 2010

   For future reference, i suggest that your well-intentioned edit summary "Created new EH, Northumberland article", while it mentions the context of the edit, invites confusion: true, one can see by looking at diffs that your edit was what other editors might have summarized with something like one of the following:
rv
reverted to Dab
reverted back to Dab, having met the objection of the preceding editor
reverted to Dab, having created article on EH, Northumberland
rv, having created article Ellingham Hall, Northumberland
I was slowed down in my analysis of the history until i went thru the diffs chronologically, bcz "Created new EH, Northumberland article" gives me as first impression the expectation that the editor created an article whose topic is "Ellingham Hall, Northumberland" on the page the history is part. If, instead, the article does not bear the natural title for that topic, my next thot would be to seek evidence indicating whether it is more likely that another title was deemed suitable to the topic, or that the page had later been renamed, say in a merge or split of the article. In the circumstance here, where looking at the preceding history entry would show that the page pre-existed that edit, my first expectation would be that the summary meant what i would summarize as "blanked ex'g article; creating in its place new EH, Northumberland article" (in the rare circumstances where such an overwriting would be justified).
   I hasten to add that IMO most editors learn (as i have) primarily by making intelligent guesses and correcting both bad edits and assumptions as needed, rather than by studying the voluminous policies and guidelines. This message is information for future use, not to complain about what i regard as your suitably BOLD editing. Thanks!
--Jerzyt 01:38, 21 December 2010 (UTC)
   At talk:Ellingham Hall#Old edit history, and will an article or a Dab be moved over the accompanying Rdr?, i've laid out a more thoro analysis of what's gone before and the ensuing options. If you want to discuss the fate of the EH page, let's do it in the wider forum that that link provides; general editing issues, confusing stuff i doubtless said, etc., will be easier to write and follow if we both edit this section for those purposes.

Please exercise the courtesy of notifying me of your concerns on my talk page when referencing my name on other talk pages. I'd do the same for you. Best, GoetheFromm (talk) 01:21, 19 March 2011 (UTC)

I've simply asked Dougweller to (re)explain his earlier comment about the necessity of the lead reflecting the article's content. If you don't understand why then I strongly suggest that you go and read WP:LEAD. I've already explained it on the article talk page - how many more times do I need to explain it? Prioryman (talk) 01:23, 19 March 2011 (UTC)
Prioyman, as you are very aware, Aero and I and many others have discussed many ways to edit the article for clarity and non-repetitiveness. You don't need to distract by referring generally to lead.
The controversy of interpreting the Cylinder is already mentioned in the lead. You want to include a lot more information regarding the British Museum (surprise!) and interactions with Ahmadinejad (which is not what makes the cylinder notable). All this information is already in the appropriate places in the article.
Please accept that you are going to have to work with others on this and not dominate. Thanks, GoetheFromm (talk) 01:35, 19 March 2011 (UTC)
The lead is supposed to reflect the contents of the body of the article. Yes, it is going to repeat in summary form what is in the body. That is what the lead is for! As for the controversy, I've pointed out on the talk page that the lead did not make any mention of the "human rights" controversy or the exhibition history, both of which are major topics in the article. WP:LEAD requires these to be mentioned in the lead. This is not optional - we do not get to pick and chose which parts of the article to summarise. All the major topics have to be summarised. This means that the "human rights" controversy has to be mentioned, summarising the positions on either side of the argument. As I've said on the talk page, if you want to improve the wording of the lead please do, but it has to reflect the contents of the article. Prioryman (talk) 01:40, 19 March 2011 (UTC)
Wow, you are totally missing the point. But whatever, will work on editing the lead. GoetheFromm (talk) 02:37, 19 March 2011 (UTC)
Would you mind explaining what "the point" is? In particular what you mean by "repetitive"? It would help if you could explain how you think the lead can summarise the content of the article without being "repetitive". Prioryman (talk) 02:39, 19 March 2011 (UTC)

B-Machine, might I suggest you stop trolling on this website. So as to avoid breaking the three revert rule, I now suspect he's sockpuppeting as another user on that article's discussion page.

handy you already having a section for it. I set the overall assessment to start for the purposes of the Milhist checklist. When all the boxes are ticked (to use the popular phrase) it should read as B-class. If WP:Milhist ever institute C class ratings then a partial set of B-checks would show as C. I ticked the three easiest ones to assess. Having had another look, there seem to be enouigh citations to tick that one too. As to whether the coverage is sufficient, i don't know. You are welcome to assess it yourself, at this level there is generally not assumed to be a conflict of interest. GraemeLeggett (talk) 21:23, 7 June 2011 (UTC)

Savage DYKs[edit]

Hi Prioryman,

I guess it's the only solution. My one suggestion would be that I would ask for the votes of only editors who are uninvolved in Savage-deletion debates elsewhere, to try to minimize the spillover of those debates here. I'm disappointed that these editors brought their war to us in the first place, and the last thing we need is to invite all of the partisans on this on either side into a new fray based on their preconceived notions about Savage. Your conversation with Rob was pretty disheartening; I want to give his views a fair hearing, but since he's posted 10+ times without citing a single piece of policy, it's hard to see how there's any room for rational discussion there. You might also consult long-time DYKers such as User:Gatoclass and User:Materialscientist directly on the issue and see if they can offer a neutral way to proceed, or ask those who originally expressed concern about this one way or another (like OC, Crisco, BarkingMoon, etc.) to comment, though be sure to avoid canvassing only those of one side. I am going to try to stay out of it after this, though--I still owe myself that wikibreak, and this has been postponing it badly! Cheers, Khazar (talk) 13:04, 14 June 2011 (UTC)

Thanks! Still got Mimoyecques to do... Prioryman (talk) 21:14, 19 June 2011 (UTC)
I am plan to add more information about the work (concentration) camps around Watten/Wizernes and the role of the French resistant fr:Joseph Dubar and his network Ali-France in the discovery of Watten. This info is strangely missing from UK/US official history books.
Concerning Mimoyecques, I have been collecting all the information already available about it (V3 page + bombings) under the name Fortress of Mimoyecques. I was planning to incorporate the information contained in this very interesting French page: http://html2.free.fr/canons/basev3.htm.
Nice work! It probably won't surprise you that I have a lot of documentation about Mimoyecques (I visited the V-weapon sites only about six weeks ago), so I'll make a start on adding what I've got. Thanks very much for all of your help. Prioryman (talk) 09:54, 20 June 2011 (UTC)

Moyecques[edit]

An article is not properly categorized just because it has a "category" transcluded by its stub template; the stub categories are temporary maintenance categories which are removed from an article once its expanded beyond stub length. So an article is correctly tagged as being uncategorized if it doesn't have any real, permanent content categories on it, even if it has 50 stub templates. Bearcat (talk) 07:39, 30 June 2011 (UTC)

So what is the solution? It's a stub article and it's correctly listed in the stub category for that region. Prioryman (talk) 07:48, 30 June 2011 (UTC)
I take the liberty to intervene in this discussion. I added the article to the category "Hameaux of Pas-de-Calais". This should settle the issue. Not sure why the category uses the French word Hameau instead of Hamlet. Taxonomy, to be or not to be? ;-)) --Alberto Fernandez Fernandez (talk) 07:58, 30 June 2011 (UTC)

Watten[edit]

Hi. I have been looking into the reference problem. It had nothing to do with reformatting. ;-) One was erased during an edit and two references were added by me but I forgot to cite them in the text. See my answer on the corresp. page.

I have added some information to the page because I am not happy with the chronology and it gave the impression that the British were all in to bomb Watten, which is the least we can say. They needed human intelligence, pictures, aerial photos to decide. The rocket was an unknown weapon at that time and most scientists doubt of its existence. It is very well explained in the recent BBC documentary on operation crossbow.

The main remaining issue IMHO is the list of raids on Watten. There are some discrepancies with the "official" list available on the official website: http://www.leblockhaus.com/modulosite2/board-of-25-bombings-gb.htm In my opinion, your list is more reliable because it is sourced but still, people may not be happy with it. How could we solve this? Any idea? --Alberto Fernandez Fernandez (talk) 11:57, 26 July 2011 (UTC)

Gisborough Priory[edit]

Revision as of 08:49, 29 July 2011 (edit) (→The alum legacy of the dissolution: - removed non-relevant line & apparently incomplete sentence)

I'm not sure what your intention was here: could you explain? Francis Hannaway 22:01, 29 July 2011 (UTC)

Hi Prioryman! Thanks for your reply.
My intention - maybe clumsily written - was to show a link between the legacy of the dissolution of Gisborough Priory and the present time ... with present day places and people. I admit that they don't show a direct description of the structure of the building or the daily life of the priory, but instead bring it to life in the context of modern England.
You have said that "In 1932, Lord Gisborough transferred control of the priory to the Office of Works. It later became the responsibility of the Ministry of Works, then the Department of the Environment and finally English Heritage.[1]" and this seems to be a great jump from the time of Henry VIII to the present time. I think that readers are more interested in historical texts if they can see a link to the present time, but that your jump to 1932 is quite a big one.
The paragraph about the alum legacy IS a very tangible one, in that it shows the branch of events which occured because of the closure of the priory. The discovery of alum and England's success in trade were directly related. The Chaloner family - even though Thomas Chaloner, 2nd Baron Gisborough, and the present Lord Gisborough, Richard Chaloner, 3rd Baron Gisborough, are not directly from the line that was granted the land of the priory, they are direcly related to the alum legacy of the dissolution of Gisborough Priory. So too, is the establishment of the Potash mine at Boulby, in that the minerals that were first used to fix dyes in wool are now used for other uses.
So, in summary, it is to link the events of the dissolution to the present that I have included this information.

Your evidence for Cirt/Jayen[edit]

Hello Prioryman, I'm contacting you about the evidence you posted for the Cirt/Jayen Arbitration case. The scope for this case has been restricted solely to the conduct of Cirt and Jayen466; as such, any evidence presented should focus on the actions of those two editors. The only exception would be detailing actions of other users that provide necessary background information (such as "Cirt/Jayen did this because Other Editor was harassing them in this manner as shown in diff diff diff"). I don't see that this is what you were attempting to assert here, however. If you believe that DC needs to be sanctioned for these actions, then the relevant evidence should be provided at the Manipulation of BLP's case, and removed from Cirt/Jayen. If you have any questions, please let me know. Hersfold (t/a/c) 22:38, 17 August 2011 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Arbitration/Requests/Case/Manipulation of BLPs closed[edit]

An arbitration case regarding of Manipulation BLPs has now closed and the final decision is viewable at the link above. The following is a summary of the remedies enacted:

  1. Editors who edit biographies of living persons and other articles referring to living persons are reminded that all editing of these articles must comply with the biographies of living persons policy and with the principles set forth in this decision;
  2. Administrators and other experienced editors are urged to take a proactive approach in addressing violations and alleged violations of the BLP policy, and to watchlist the BLP noticeboard and participate in discussing and resolving issues raised on that noticeboard;
  3. To the extent that parties to this case have been engaged in protracted disputes and quarrels with other parties, the feuding parties are urged to avoid any unnecessary interactions with each other, except to the extent necessary for legitimate purposes such as dispute resolution;
  4. If disputes concerning editing of biographical articles by parties to this case persist, appropriate dispute resolution methods should be pursued.
