Re: Windmill Hill[edit]

Thanks for sorting out this red link! :)

I'm afraid I don't have any more of that map, Leslie Linares sent it to me as I was after a reference for Martin's Path which is usually mistaken for being part of Mediterranean Steps. It would be great if we had the complete map as it was published in 1961 which means Crown Copyright has only just expired, probably making it the most recent military map we could use... --Gibmetal 77talk 2 me 11:27, 2 July 2013 (UTC)

Gibraltar by-election, 2013[edit]

Hey, need some advice. I wanna nominate this for DYK and it would be nice to have it show up on the day of the election, 4 July. Being a Gibraltar article, I'm not sure if the nom should go under the Gib holding area or the 4 July holding area? Thanks, --Gibmetal 77talk 2 me 21:59, 2 July 2013 (UTC)

I'd list it under both, and also under the date on which you've nominated it (yes, that makes three listings, I'm afraid!). Prioryman (talk) 22:31, 2 July 2013 (UTC)
Done, thanks! --Gibmetal 77talk 2 me 22:47, 2 July 2013 (UTC)

Nice job with the Podium girl article. I don't know why I clicked it on the Main Page in the first place but I ended up reading everything ... and I don't regret it. It was very informative. Thanks and happy editing! ComputerJA () 08:13, 5 July 2013 (UTC)

A messy plot section was added to Sharknado after the DYK was accepted. I tried to clean it up, but I am not experienced with plot sections so I was wondering if someone could copy-edit the section if they feel like it. SL93 (talk) 20:14, 12 July 2013 (UTC)

Sure, I'll take a look at it. I didn't see the film but I really want to now. :-) Prioryman (talk) 20:26, 12 July 2013 (UTC)
I meant to post this on the DYK take page, but whatever, I'm still getting help and I appreciate it. I responded to your hook suggestion. You might be right, but I'm not sure despite what my edit summary says. SL93 (talk) 20:27, 12 July 2013 (UTC)


You've ruined my day; those airplanes are already roaring overhead on the way to Gibraltar with this Thomas Cook advert currently on the main page!! Congratulations!!

Your identitifying information[edit]

Hello. As you are probably aware, there have been recent discussions about whether (a) your previous user name and (b) your alleged real name are subject to Wikipedia's policies concerning outing and harassment. You have not participated in these discussions, as is your right. But as an administrator who has taken administrative actions in this regard, I need to determine whether and how these actions require modification in the light of these discussions. To that end, could you please briefly indicate, either here or per e-mail, whether you consider the information referred to as (a) and (b) above private, and if yes, whether you desire that this privacy be enforced by administrative means? Should I not receive an answer by you within 24 hours of your next edit, or within three days, I will assume that you are not interested in any continued administrative action in this regard. Thanks,  Sandstein  23:01, 14 July 2013 (UTC)


I'm getting great pleasure out of your spoof, if only I could find someone to show it to! Most of the streets around where I live are only populated by those who cannot get travel insurance or lack funds. My poor granny just looks up longingly watching Blofeld airways planes circling overhead as they try and get permission to land at Gibraltar Airport or Gibraltar (North) <--- previously called Madrid). How clever of Blofeld to invest in landing rights at Gibraltar (South) but the tourists who land in Africa have the problem of getting across the Strait of GibraltarpediA but "Did You Know" that it is packed with cruise liners. I'm taking a break for a bit but I'm so pleased that we have 1,000 new articles. I'm suggesting to Blofeld that this is a "Kiloto(w)n of Energy"..... (he thinks he can design a death ray).

No, not "trolling", you have made a serious error[edit]

How is it that not only do you think that adding a see-also of a risible cartoon character to the biography of a living man with a tragic illness is okay, but you even edit it to be more explicit?

I'm giving you a chance to explain yourself here before I raise your conduct at a community noticeboard for discussion. — Scott talk 22:02, 15 July 2013 (UTC)

I didn't add the link, [1] [2], and if you look at the linked article you will see there is a reciprocal link, which I also didn't add.[3] You're talking to the wrong person - try taking it up with the person who actually did add the link. Prioryman (talk) 22:21, 15 July 2013 (UTC)
I didn't say that you did, and if you hadn't blanked my post as "trolling" you might have seen that. What you did do was expand an inappropriate link, which indicates that you not only condoned its addition, but decided that it needed to be more verbose, instead of removing it from the article.
I'm no longer as angry as I was with you last night, so can no longer summon the motivation to bring it up at AN/I, as I had planned to. However, if I catch you making a similar shockingly inappropriate and ill-considered edit to a BLP in future, I will almost certainly find that motivation. — Scott talk 13:43, 16 July 2013 (UTC)
As for you, Scott, I certainly don't think it's appropriate for you to call your fellow editors "fucking cunts". You need to tone it down. Prioryman (talk) 13:48, 16 July 2013 (UTC)
There are plenty of choice adjectives that come to mind when I see someone condoning the addition of a "funny" link to a page about someone with a life-changing medical condition. Get your act together. If you start thinking a little harder before hitting the save page button, you won't run the risk of making people angry with ill-considered, crass edits like that one. — Scott talk 14:01, 16 July 2013 (UTC)
Quite honestly, you come across as angry all the time. You're not related to Bruce Banner, are you? Prioryman (talk) 14:06, 16 July 2013 (UTC)
Since you apparently continue to think that there was nothing wrong with your edit, I want to draw your attention to WP:BLPBAN. The next time you pull something like that, I will ban you from editing any BLP indefinitely. Salvio Let's talk about it! 15:53, 16 July 2013 (UTC)
  • "..also considered selling his testicles on eBay to raise money for an operation."
and all the stuff about "the penis", was sourced to 'The Sun' fer Chrissakes!
You really need to be more careful re tabloid sourcing for BLPs. I noticed you just got "reviewer" permission, the onus is now on you to remove this sorta stuff on sight, not add it! I recommend checking this handy page for more details. (It's part of an ongoing Sisyphean task I set myself, namely that of sorting out our BLPs. As always any help would be much appreciated!)
There are many other tabloid citations (Metro, Mirror, etc, etc..) in that article, that while not supporting contentious information, should be taken out anyway, as a matter of course. -- Hillbillyholiday talk 23:35, 15 July 2013 (UTC) Edit: Mostly done now.

Geraldine Finlayson[edit]

Do me a favour - save me the trouble of AfDing this by explaining how she is notable? Her husband is - his brother probably is - but I see nothing at all here. Black Kite (talk) 21:26, 16 July 2013 (UTC)

I agree that the current sources don't do a great job of conveying notability. However, if you look at her biography here she's clearly done or is doing notable things (Director of Gibraltar's main cultural centre, head of an academic institution). This is bound to be reflected in local sources that are not necessarily available on the Internet. I'll ask the locals for more info. In the meantime I'd suggest holding off an AfD for, say, a week, so that more sources can be found. If the article can't be improved in that time then I won't stand in the way of a fresh prod in a week's time. Prioryman (talk) 21:36, 16 July 2013 (UTC)
That's fair. Black Kite (talk) 21:40, 16 July 2013 (UTC)
Thank you. Something to bear in mind is that (as I understand it) until recently Internet access in Gibraltar was ludicrously expensive, so publications seem to have stayed analogue far longer than elsewhere. Unfortunately the local offline sources are pretty much inaccessible unless you're actually there, hence the need to make some enquiries. Prioryman (talk) 21:46, 16 July 2013 (UTC)

You e-mail[edit]

Hello. In reply to your e-mail in which you suggest that action be taken at WP:AE, you are free to make a request for enforcement on that page as per the instructions there. Please do not again send me offwiki requests for action.  Sandstein  07:19, 17 July 2013 (UTC)

It wasn't a request, it was a recommendation. But thanks for your advice. In retrospect I think AE would probably be the wrong place given the privacy concerns. Prioryman (talk) 07:26, 17 July 2013 (UTC)
