I see that the FAC page mentions you and Ian as "determine the timing of the process for each nomination". I also see that WestJet Encore, an article that I nominated and improved from a 9 line article to FAC, has been re-classified as an "older nomination". Would you kindly determine if the timing is right to be FA? Thank you. Vanguard10 (talk) 02:53, 1 April 2018 (UTC)


You can see why I quit doing source reviews. I didn’t call it a juvenile work, I noted that worldcat classifies it as one. And speaking of actually looking at things closely, I do adore being called a he. I also note that nothing about the iTunes source was addressed.Ealdgyth - Talk 23:00, 4 April 2018 (UTC)

I know... I don't blame you at all. In all honesty, if someone had scripted it, it couldn't have been a more perfect example. Sarastro (talk) 23:22, 4 April 2018 (UTC)
I’m thinking of adding a parenthetical “(I’m female!)” to my sig you think it’d help? Ealdgyth - Talk 23:30, 4 April 2018 (UTC)
(TPS): Darn, you fixed your typo before I could make a wig joke. Anyhow, you could try something relatively subtle, like "Talk to her" for your User Talk link. --RL0919 (talk) 23:35, 4 April 2018 (UTC)
I quite like "I'm female!" personally. Though I suppose subtle is better. Boring but better! Incidentally I've been presumed female a few times on here. Not quite sure what to make of that, on any level... Sarastro (talk) 23:39, 4 April 2018 (UTC)
And I'm sorry but this source does not actually support the statement "Sega rereleased the soundtrack to celebrate the Sonic franchise's 20th anniversary"because the itunes listing doesn't say WHY Sega released it. It does say it's the 20th Anniversary but it cannot support a reason for the rerelease that isn't given. It's a WP:SYNTH/WP:OR problem. You can say that "in May 2011 a 20th Anniversary edition of the soundtrack was released." which the website would correctly support ... but not what it currently is supporting.

I've done all the updating I'm going to do for that article. The areas that had been poorly updated before were the ones lacking sources, so that should be better too. I haven't done the thorough copy-edit pass I promised, but another 10 days or so and I'm home free regarding my real-life work, so I'll be able to become much more active again if I don't get to it before then.

Also, could I ask you to check to ensure the placement in career runs and career centuries remains accurate and update the article accordingly? I'd do it but I don't have access to CricketArchive.--Wehwalt (talk) 23:29, 8 May 2018 (UTC)

Thank you for Wally Hammond, "a cricketer in the 1920s and 1930s, regarded as one of the best cricketers of all time, becoming captain of England and being the first former professional to captain the side. He was a moody so-and-so and not especially popular but had a few interesting things happen to him"! --Gerda Arendt (talk) 07:38, 19 June 2018 (UTC)

Learie Constantine[edit]

Just a "heads up" that a new biography has just been published: Connie: The Marvellous Life of Learie Constantine by Harry Pearson. JH (talk page) 15:16, 23 May 2018 (UTC)

As the co-author of the Constantine article, (and the current expander of Leslie Hylton), I think "hagiography" rather than "biography" would better describe this new book. I've not read it all, but a few furtive peeks in the local bookshop indicate that it is far from being a critical study; the title rather gives the game away. But it may well be a decent read.
