Merry Christmas!!![edit]

Would you have any suggestions?[edit]

A few months ago during the eventually unsuccessful Wikipedia:Requests_for_adminship/Piotrus_3 you voted "oppose". I wonder if you'd like to discuss any concerns of yours, or if you would have any suggestions in the event I'd decide to run again (which I am not planning to do anytime soon, but might consider in the future). For a better sense of my work and activities around the project, I invite you to consider reviewing my userpage, my talk page archives (which are not redacted), to watchlist my talk page, or use edit analysis tools like Wikichecker, content.paragr, dewkin, xtools-pages or xtools-ec (which in theory should work as of late 2014...). I would be more than happy to talk about your concerns over Commons (and I do agree this project has deep issues), but I'd like to start by assuring you I am totally fine with keeping local copies; my primary concern is to make images which are currently only available on English Wikipedia also available on other projects (as long as there are no copyright concerns). Thank you for your time, (PS. If you reply here, I'd appreciate a WP:ECHO or {{talkback}} ping). --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 12:46, 27 December 2014 (UTC)

Happy editing,

Spread the love by adding {{subst:Seasonal Greetings}} to other user talk pages.

Hi Piotrus, merry Christmas. I admit my Oppose on your last RFA was rather WP:POINTy, made due to my dissatisfaction with Commons rather than due to any fault with you specifically. I still feel the same way about Commons, but I don't comment on RFAs any more these days - I haven't the time to properly assess the candidates. So I can't give you any particular suggestions, but for what it's worth, if you do run again, you won't get an Oppose from me. Robofish (talk) 17:29, 27 December 2014 (UTC)
Thank you for getting back to me. If you would have any further questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to ask me. It's not like I am planning to run anytime soon (maybe in several months at best), so there's plenty of time to discuss anything you'd like. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 15:41, 5 January 2015 (UTC)

Merger discussion for Majorat[edit]


An article that you have been involved in editing, Majorat, has been proposed for merging with another article. If you are interested, please participate in the merger discussion. Thank you. MiguelMadeira (talk) 11:11, 6 February 2015 (UTC) --MiguelMadeira (talk) 11:11, 6 February 2015 (UTC)

Did you even bother looking?[edit]

I suggest that you are a WP:DRIVEBYTAGGER. Le petit fromage (talk) 23:12, 23 March 2015 (UTC)

Guilty as charged, Le petit fromage. I do tag pages quickly, based on an initial reaction, but I don't mind if people revert the tags just as quickly if I've made a mistake and they're not appropriate. Reverts are cheap after all. It would be nice if you let me know which article you're referring to here though. Robofish (talk) 23:16, 23 March 2015 (UTC)

The Notability of the Sukey Project[edit]

Hi Robofish! I'm an ex member of the Sukey project, and newbie to Wikipedia. I noticed that there can been some disagreement over the notability of the project. Whilst not widely known, I would argue that Sukey had a small, but vital part to play in the history of student activism in the UK, and set a precedent for mapping and its role within activism in the UK, please see this link (section 5), for a little background on its notability.

I would be interested to know your reasons for adding the notability tag, and whether there is anything I can do to resolve this. (Gaffen (talk) 18:06, 27 March 2015 (UTC))

Thanks for your comment, Gaffen. I'm still not entirely convinced about the notability of the subject, but on taking another look at the article, there is slightly more media coverage than I first thought. I've given it the benefit of the doubt and removed the tag. Robofish (talk) 23:55, 27 March 2015 (UTC)

Your common.css page[edit]

Hi; I notice that in User:Robofish/common.css you have the CSS rule

.ambox-Orphan{display: inherit !important;}

- please note that there is an error in this (almost certainly copied from an old version of Template:Orphan#Visibility) which causes incorrect display in some browsers.

To check this, visit this page and look at the second bullet (the one that precedes the text "This article is an orphan ..."). If this bullet is not in the same alignment as the other four, but displaced to the left, you can fix it by altering inherit to table in the CSS rule mentioned earlier. If that doesn't work either, alter it to block.

Template:Orphan#Visibility has been amended. --Redrose64 (talk) 19:34, 1 May 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for the notification, Redrose64. I've corrected it. Robofish (talk) 22:19, 1 May 2015 (UTC)
