Hi folks....I'm back now! wassup?!!(Sarah777 15:40, 8 August 2007 (UTC))
They're threatening to ban you for an entire bloody year at Arbcom. Absolutely f**k*** outrageous!
Show them your article creation list, Sarah, I think you probably have the record.
Sure you lose your rag from time to time - but don't we all, especially when faced with extreme provocation and wind-up merchnats....Gaimhreadhan (kiwiexile at DMOZ) talk • 17:46, 8 August 2007 (UTC)

It is Midsummers day[edit]

Now the hungry lion roars, And the wolf behowls the moon; Whilst the heavy ploughman snores, All with weary task fordone. Now the wasted brands do glow, Whilst the screech-owl, screeching loud, Puts the wretch that lies in woe In remembrance of a shroud. Now it is the time of night That the graves all gaping wide, Every one lets forth his sprite, In the church-way paths to glide: And we fairies, that do run By the triple Hecate's team, From the presence of the sun, Following darkness like a dream.... will.i.am S ~

Question...[edit]

How do "drafts" such as this end up in the IrlProject?

Donnelly (surname)

Addendum: it seems they no longer exist except on the IrlProj template...

Sarah777 (talk) 20:02, 31 July 2016 (UTC)

Because the bot that collects the articles cannot find and properly list draft articles like Draft:Donnelly (surname) even though the Ireland Project assessment banner was added to the talk page. I think there are still 3 such drafts but the links need you to prefix the name with "Draft:" in order to display them. ww2censor (talk) 22:03, 31 July 2016 (UTC)
Thanks WW. Sarah777 (talk) 18:04, 1 August 2016 (UTC)

River Dargle[edit]

Here's a thing....

This article cites many "facts" apparently referenced - but none of the links seem to work or reference the "facts". At least they cannot be checked online. How does one go about trying to establish that an article in the Irish Times in 1933 supports a claim here? Sarah777 (talk) 22:59, 20 August 2016 (UTC)

That can be a problem with older references. If you really want to investigate such claims the Gilbert Library or the National Library are good sources for newspapers, though you have to go through a process to get into the reading room of the National Library. A while ago my son gave me a link to an Irish newspaper archive as he was looking for the news reports of my father's death which was being written about at the time. I think you could get a free trial subscription for a week. If you are interested, I'll get the details. Do you not have a sub? Let me know. Jstor can also be useful for some Irish journals - see Wikipedia:JSTOR. Here are their results of a "Dargle River" search. I've found all sorts of good references there such as the Dublin Historical Record. Good luck. ww2censor (talk) 17:26, 7 September 2016 (UTC)
I found this particularly useful: A Specimen of Sarcophaga ebrachiata Pandellé (Diptera: Sarcophagidae) with Dark Genitalia . Apparently the Dargle is full of them....! Sarah777 (talk) 19:09, 9 September 2016 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for September 7[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited 1353 in Ireland, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Ulick de Burgh (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.

Nomination of 1250 in Ireland for deletion[edit]

This is just one of a series of hundreds of articles! It is a stub - to be expanded. Sarah777 (talk) 18:40, 9 September 2016 (UTC)
OK - a weakness in this particular list is that the only "fact" in it is that, regarding Leap Castle "There are varied accounts as to when exactly the main tower/keep was constructed; ranging anywhere from the 13th century to the late 15th century, but most likely around 1250 CE."
But I'd argue that we should call for references rather than deletion. Sarah777 (talk) 19:20, 9 September 2016 (UTC)

Thanks! But I'm now utterly confused by the Richard de Clare, 2nd Earl of Pembroke who may, or may not, have built Kilkenny Castle in 1172 or maybe it was built in 1195 by William Marshal, oddly the 1st Earl of Pembroke ! Sarah777 (talk) 22:39, 15 September 2016 (UTC)
It seems Richard de Clare, 2nd Earl of Pembroke died in 1176 yet William Marshal, 1st Earl of Pembroke, in a "second creation" also founded Kilkenny Castle. Any historians out there who can clear this up??? Sarah777 (talk) 22:50, 15 September 2016 (UTC)

A big THANK YOU[edit]

..... to those of you who, despite their reservations (!) supported retention of 1250 in Ireland. I will endeavor to fill in all the blanks. Sarah777 (talk) 21:15, 17 September 2016 (UTC)

Personally I think you should try to put at least 2 or 3 items into each such list as a minimun. Good luck and thanks. ww2censor (talk) 18:00, 18 September 2016 (UTC)
Indeed; I remove the stub tag if I can get a birth, death and event. But to start a year I'll accept one link. Mostly, once I create one it seems to expand (albeit very slowly) over time. Sarah777 (talk) 18:17, 18 September 2016 (UTC)

Earthquake in Ireland?[edit]

It appears that in 1245 and earthquake occurred, strong enough to destroy a church in County Down! Never realised we had such an earthquake in recorded history in Ireland. Sarah777 (talk) 17:40, 18 September 2016 (UTC)

Well I don't remember that one myself but in 1984, when I was away in India, there was one that left some damage. Check [ http://www.independent.ie/irish-news/irelands-earthquake-explained-29305938.html this] out and maybe have a look at List of earthquakes in the British Isles. My neighbours had small a small crack up the side of their house which I could see from my kitchen! It was not really bad and maybe is still not been pointed. ww2censor (talk) 18:00, 18 September 2016 (UTC)
Yeah, heard about the 1984 one - but it didn't demolish much! Apparently a tsunami hit the south coast after the Lisbon Earthquake of 1755. And I thought we were safe here....Sarah777 (talk) 18:03, 18 September 2016 (UTC)
Well now that I'm not in Ireland earthquakes there won't affect me unless I'm visiting my family. I was in the US for Hurricane Sandy staying in my sister-in-laws all electric flat so we had no power for days, but now terrorism is more likely here in France though I am in the countryside.

Class assessments[edit]

Good morning. I noticed this edit where you added a different class rating to the one already used by another project. Just a heads up but the class rating sould be the same for all projects, so either change the other one if you think it is now rated differently or rate as the existing projects. Are you using User:Kephir/gadgets/rater? It's pretty good but for the Ireland project don't click the "photo" button, instead add the field "image needed" and fill in "yes". Have a great day. ww2censor (talk) 09:10, 25 September 2016 (UTC)

News to me, I'd have thought different projects would have different criteria. I've been rating Irl Projects for many years (in fact I do the bulk of the rating for the project) and almost never interfere with tags of other projects. Sarah777 (talk) 19:29, 25 September 2016 (UTC)
Well I've always understood that if it's a start class, that's the same for all projects because it is the quality of the article which does not vary by project. Why would it? On the other hand the importance does vary by project. Cheers ww2censor (talk) 22:20, 25 September 2016 (UTC)
Why would it? I guess if different projects had different criteria it would? Sarah777 (talk) 22:32, 25 September 2016 (UTC)
So let me pose the scenario differently and maybe you will agree. When an article is assessed for featured article or a Good article that decision is made by consensus of the community and not by any one project, so when such an article is promoted it's quality is attributed to all the interested projects at thee same level and not at different levels by for one project. So in my mind the same applies to any assessment level as a community wide rating. I think that if an article is the a stub class for one project it is the same for all. The only exception I know of is where a project does not rate articles at a particular class. I don't remember which projects I have noticed this with but there are some. We can of course agree to disagree. Keep well. ww2censor (talk) 09:49, 26 September 2016 (UTC)
We may have to do that - agree to disagree! I simply don't feel comfortable or qualified to alter the tags of Projects I've no familiarity with. Sarah777 (talk) 21:45, 26 September 2016 (UTC)
