Problem with multiple maps in Infobox Settlement[edit]

I think you should pause or modify your AWB run. What you're doing is generally a good idea, but when the |pushpin_image= parameter is used in {{Infobox settlement}}, the second map is broken. Let me try to fix. For now, can you skip such articles? An example of a broken map is at Mono Mills, California. Thanks! —hike395 (talk) 06:51, 4 July 2016 (UTC)

Thanks.[edit]

I don't mind if you delete this, as it's boring for visitors to your talkpage. If you delete it, then you have read it. That is what's important.

Thank you. I am also a gnome. But 0.6%! That's an awesome number. I won't send you cute pictures of things. I just wish to say thank you.

Bulk messaging[edit]

Hello Ser Amantio di Nicolao, not sure if you are aware - but as an administrator you have access to Special:MassMessage, you can read more about it here: Wikipedia:Mass message senders. If you have a message that needs to go to lots of users, it is generally better to send with this utility than by huge AWB runs. Check it out, you may like it.

WikiProject Wildfire[edit]

Information icon

Hello! I have recently started a new WikiProject and am trying to recruit new members. The project, WikiProject Wildfire, focuses on articles that relate to wildfires. There is a lot of work that needs to be done. From updating templates, to classifying and improving articles. Any level of commitment is welcome! If you care to just add some input on the founding of the new project, awesome. If you would like to take an active role in editing articles, that is awesome as well! Knowledge of wildfires is NOT a prerequisite for joining the project. In fact, it would be great to have some members of the project who are NOT fire-buffs. That way we make sure that articles aren't just written by and for people in the fire community. If this is something you have any interest in, I would love to have you join the project! Please feel free to join the discussion or leave me a message on my talk page. (Note that you are receiving this message from me because I saw you made multiple edits on a wildfire related page, specifically Griffith Park Fire. Not just spamming you at random.) Hope you have a great day! Zackmann08 (Talk to me/What I been doing) 22:18, 2 August 2016 (UTC)

Cat-a-lot[edit]

Hey Nicolao. What are the rules of English Wikipedia for the use of cat-a-lot? Thanks. Vítor (talk) 19:04, 7 August 2016 (UTC)

Category move Category:Earth satellites of Russia to Category:Earth observation satellites of Russia was wrong![edit]

It is absolutely wrong. GLONASS is a navigation satellite, Ekspress (satellite constellation) are communications satellites. All those are Earth satellites of Russia but no Earth observation! Russia also had satellites around other planets, that's why this category was done this way. I haven't been able to find the discussion for the move but whoever made it lacked a fundamental understanding about the artificial satellites nature. Now I have to go around and create new categories and go article by article seeing if it applies. – Baldusi (talk) 12:02, 8 August 2016 (UTC)

Please remove parent categories when adding more specific category[edit]

Hello - thanks for adding categories such as Category:Olympic bronze medalists for the United States in track and field. However, when you are adding them you are leaving behind parent categories such as Category:Olympic track and field athletes of the United States and Category:Olympic medalists in athletics (track and field), which are parent categories of this new cat. Please remove the parent categories when you add the child or you are creating unnecessary work for others. Thanks! Rikster2 (talk) 10:42, 11 August 2016 (UTC)

Sadly your article concerning cellist Radu Aldulescu is full of mistakes. Dimitrie Dinicu was not his grand'father and not his real first teacher. Neither Gaspar Cassado !

Stub class articles[edit]

I noticed you added a top to a number of biography talk pages recently. Thanks for this. However, it did leave them all with a Stub-Class evaluation. I contributed the article John Cornwall (c.1366-1414) a few weeks ago. While I make no claims for the quality of the article, it seems to me that it's hardly a stub. For example, it contains over 6000 words, which is about the maximum recommended. It also has 108 citations, with a reference base of 44 books and websites. I'm not entirely sure how it came to be assessed as a stub, although it's one of many that received the same treatment. When an article is of reasonable length, I normally remove stub assessments and await someone from the Biography Project having a look, as happened more recently with John Burley. However, there are rather a lot to follow up here. I only raise this because I'm not entirely sure how Biography Project people work. Sjwells53 (talk) 12:43, 13 August 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for your quick reply on this. I'll alter the ones I know about, but there may be many more. All of these are at least 2000 words in length. I imagine they'll be largely ignored by the project if marked in this way, though I don't know how they prioritise things. Sjwells53 (talk) 17:23, 13 August 2016 (UTC)
I noticed also that all the articles I looked at included the entry "|listas=Golde, Adam", which I guess is incorrect in most cases. Sjwells53 (talk) 17:33, 13 August 2016 (UTC)
Also check where the WikiProject Politics of the United Kingdom template is used. This project only covers the period after 1707. All the entries I'm looking at are medieval or early modern, and none fall within its scope. Sjwells53 (talk) 17:42, 13 August 2016 (UTC)

WPHK[edit]

I'm afraid you've misidentified a number of categories [1] as belonging to another WikiProject. These categories should belong to {{WPHK}}. 18:39, 13 August 2016 (UTC)

Proposing an article for deletion[edit]

Proposed deletion of Lea-Tuti Livšits[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Lea-Tuti Livšits has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Not enough sourcing to satisfy WP:GNG.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. -- Tavix (talk) 21:50, 20 August 2016 (UTC)

Hello Ser Amantio di Nicolao,

I'm curious, can you tell me why you removed SARAH from the category of 21st-century American novels? It was published in 2000, doesn't it count as a 21st-century novel?

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Stephanie Reeve until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. MSJapan (talk) 02:13, 22 August 2016 (UTC)

Hi About Murder of Kylie Maybury ... It was brought to my attention through a 1970 article in The Age that the accused man in Kylie's case was charged in 1970 with attacking a 14 year old girl on a train with a hammer.

Your recent changes to maps have put another few dozen pages in Category:Pages with script errors. This is the third time I have visited your talk page to report this.

Villages in Gloucestershire[edit]

Hi, I noticed that a lot of the villages aren't tagged for Gloucestershire, can you go through them?♦ Dr. Blofeld 13:34, 29 August 2016 (UTC)

Gender categories, century categories etc[edit]

Hi. Thanks for your edits, they are surely laborious, but please allow me to bring up two issues with them.

One is a particular note. As the editor of many articles on Romanian writers, I took care to sort out the categories, overall, by some recognizable criterion, and when you just drop the new categories you create in there somewhere I tend to despair after a while of finding them a place in the queue. I hope you can take some more time in noticing the pattern when you add them.

The second is a technical issue: Ser, I don't for the love of me understand why you enjoy making it so absurdly hard for your project by starting with generic and vague, and immensely vast, categories (Male essayists), dropping a random load of articles in there, instead of creating yourself the narrower categories (Category:Romanian male essayists, or even Category:Romanian 20th-century male essayists) from the beginning, and then putting the categories themselves into vaguer and vaguer ones.

By not working that, you make it a chore on everybody else to try and find out what other vague categories exist at this moment in time, but you also make it hard on yourself. One one hand, you revisit the same articles over and over again, each time narrowing the scope (isn't it exhausting?); on the other, it's much easier to keep track of what categories exist, and therefore much easier for others to help you include articles in them. Oh: and you also limit the sheer number of categories that pile up at the end of each article, and which in some cases (Felix Aderca jumps to mind) are so accumulated and hard to follow that they arguably defeat the very purpose of categorizing. Dahn (talk) 22:04, 29 August 2016 (UTC)

Hm, small enough, you say? (There are quite enough there to validate a 19th-century category as well. Romanian literati were quite chatty in that very accessible genre.)
Also, mind you, I was not talking overcategorization (as in, putting Aderca into Category:Novelists, Category:Romanian novelists, Category:Romanian writers, Category:Romanian male writers etc.). The issue you create is a lot of valid categories, non redundant to each other, but so very many that the reader (and other editors) can't follow them. By creating directly the cross-sections of several categories (Category:20th-century Romanian male novelists, for instance), adding them to those would cut out about three categories that "pour" into that. Instead of keeping on adding categories to the foot of the article, you reduce them, and get the same effect you desire categorization-wise. Dahn (talk) 11:00, 30 August 2016 (UTC)

But Ser, did I convince you to start your categorizing from the smaller conceivable categories to the larger, or at least to have a look into what categories include before you add more categories to the articles? For instance, would you consider making a Category:19th-century Romanian essayists before you put random articles/each and every article on a 19th-century Romanian essayist into Category:19th-century essayists, and then revisiting each and every article in that category to narrow it down (or expecting others to do it)? As long as this categorizing seems to be your prime focus, would you please consider thinking ahead, for your own sake if not for everyone else's? Dahn (talk) 12:20, 8 September 2016 (UTC)

10,000[edit]

Hi, I hope I'm not inundatng you with too many requests, but I was wondering if you could somehow message all of the members of the Britain and county and Ireland projects with this invite. Something to alert people to the cause. Only if it can be done fairly easily and not a burden on you though! Someday we'll get around to one for Virginia ;-)♦ Dr. Blofeld 14:42, 30 August 2016 (UTC)

Any reason why you have you stopped responding to emails? The old you would have been really enthuasiastic about the African 10,000! I do miss our old conversations at times!♦ Dr. Blofeld 07:28, 3 September 2016 (UTC)

Westchester House[edit]

Hello Sir.

I am one of the managers at Sohotel in NYC. You have created edits for a page listing us as The Westchester House. This hotel no longer exists and the side of effect of your page has led facebook and instagram to create locations for it and now our hotel Sohotel is named Westchester House on all Social media. This has created us a marketing nightmare as guests do not know which hotel is which. I know this may sound silly but it really is a huge deal.

Can you please change the name of our hotel on this page to Sohotel. This is our name.

Can you please go back to marking these edits as minor (or even better, do it from an account with a bot flag)?

Sportspeople & gender category changes[edit]

Hi, thanks for your recent edits of this nature. Can you please in future remember to also remove the parent category, saves someone else having to do it in the future. For example when you replace Category:Male boxers with Category:Canadian male boxers, there is no longer a need for Category:Canadian boxers. Thanks again. Jevansen (talk) 07:40, 14 September 2016 (UTC)

Paddy Barnes (Irish Boxer)[edit]

Hi you recently changed the category on Paddy Barnes to "British male boxers" please note that he is not British, he was born in Northern Ireland (which is not part of Great Britain, but is part of the United Kingdom) and he has represented Northern Ireland previously and Ireland (which is neither Great Britain or United Kingdom) at the Rio 2016 Olympics. Please kindly consider changing as I don't wish to revert anyones good faith editsXyzspaniel (talk) 12:27, 14 September 2016 (UTC)

A Question[edit]

Yours is the last friendly voice on my TALK page, so you are elected.

This morning I visited the Scott Turow article, and in my genomic style, decided to correct an unnecessary capitalization. I often am reminded to log in first by a popup which says my IP is blocked. Using smartphone, so shared IP 's, no worries. My wiki-persona, when logged in, is not blocked. But today, after logging in, a new popup appeared, red lettering, saying something to effect of: Some of my input is questionable (!?!) Are you familiar with such a popup? There was no detail, or explanation. Did not seem to be a link. I could not seem to reproduce it, so after editing, I logged off, and then logged on again. The notice did not reappear.

I recently had a run-in with someone who seems, at least in my limited experience, to be a rogue administrator. He has protected an editor who seems to be territorial and of limited ability. I have opted to back out of the entire situation. Wikipedia is such an enormous place, with so much work to be done, why should I quibble over someone's childishness. I can edit elsewhere. But this guy, at least once, has followed my comments on a user TALK page, and made veiled threats. Something to the effect that I was disruptive, and could be blocked. At the risk of sounding paranoid, I can't help but wonder if I'm being targeted. It really doesn't seem likely, especially since I very rarely edit these days, but is there somewhere I can inquire about my "questionable input", and who my accuser might be? Probably I should ignore the entire thing. On the other hand, in the past I have found that such questions, if not dealt with, can take on a life of their own. I once almost lost a real-life job over a total fiction, a rumor which circulated unbeknownst to me, which upon investigation by an official, had no substance whatsoever. Two years later a friend told me how close I had come to disaster. I hadn't a clue.

Any ideas you have would be helpful. I wish I could quote the popup box for you, but my memory's not the best. Anyway, no specifics were on offer, only deniable vagueness. Rags (talk) 12:58, 14 September 2016 (UTC)

I think you are probably correct in your assessment. If there are any further developments, I will update you. ANI was primarily the answer to my question, but I will probably wait and see. The popup could easily be totally unrelated to the previous incident. And thank you for your quick response, as well as for the work you do here, gnomic and otherwise.

Turkey[edit]

Hi Ser, can you do me a favour and quickly send the following message to Category:WikiProject Turkey participants:♦ Dr. Blofeld 12:45, 19 September 2016 (UTC)

Hi. I was wondering if you'd be interested in setting up Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Turkey), based on Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge and Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic). Now it's not a contest in itself, it's designed to motivate people to inspire others to improve content and build something which demonstrates the hard work going into the country which is visible. The focus is more on quality improvements but new articles are welcome too. Eventually a Turkish National Contest could be created to fuel it, like Wikipedia:Awaken the Dragon, in which contestants can choose to keep the Amazon vouchers themselves to buy their own books for more articles or put them into book fund to help editors further improve Turkish-related topics by giving them the books they want. It will begin though as purely an improvement drive. If interested, or you think anybody else might be interested, alert them and sign up on the Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Turkey talk page at the bottom. Thankyou.

Wow that was quick! Thanks!♦ Dr. Blofeld 16:04, 19 September 2016 (UTC)

Hi Ser. Can you use that message tool to notify all of the editors of WP Norway, Sweden, Finland, Iceland, Greeland and Faroe Islands about Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic)? Something shorter and simple like:

Hi. I was wondering if you would be interested in contributing articles to Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic)? It needs contributors to increase diversity of content from different countries and bring about large scale improvements. The idea at some point will be to host a National Contest related to your country of interest. Thanks.

Hi, just creating Tope Oshin Ogun. Can't seem to find a category for Alumni of Community College of Aurora?♦ Dr. Blofeld 12:05, 20 September 2016 (UTC)

Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic)[edit]

Hi, this sounds like a great project. I'm not sure if I have time right now to help, but I can try. I've been compiling a list of missing articles or ones that need to be expanded over the years which could be added to the challenge's page, as there is a huge selection of articles about Sámi women that could use to be written. Thanks for letting me know about the project! -Yupik (talk) 16:39, 21 September 2016 (UTC)

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, Ser Amantio di Nicolao. This message is intended to notify administrators of important changes to the protection policy.

Extended confirmed protection (also known as "30/500 protection") is a new level of page protection that only allows edits from accounts at least 30 days old and with 500 edits. The automatically assigned "extended confirmed" user right was created for this purpose. The protection level was created following this community discussion with the primary intention of enforcing various arbitration remedies that prohibited editors under the "30 days/500 edits" threshold to edit certain topic areas.

In July and August 2016, a request for comment established consensus for community use of the new protection level. Administrators are authorized to apply extended confirmed protection to combat any form of disruption (e.g. vandalism, sock puppetry, edit warring, etc.) on any topic, subject to the following conditions:

  • Extended confirmed protection may only be used in cases where semi-protection has proven ineffective. It should not be used as a first resort.
  • A bot will post a notification at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard of each use. MusikBot currently does this by updating a report, which is transcluded onto the noticeboard.
Please review the protection policy carefully before using this new level of protection on pages. Thank you.
This message was sent to the administrators' mass message list. To opt-out of future messages, please remove yourself from the list. 17:49, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

Template:Amasya District[edit]

Baltic[edit]

Hi, can you do me a favour and send out this to all listed members of WP:Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania?

Hi. I see you are listed as a member of a WikiProject of a Baltic state. I was wondering if anybody who actively works on Estonian, Lithuanian or Latvian articles, would be interested in launching your own Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Baltic), based on the Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic) and Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge. The idea would be to try to bring about 1000 article improvements and creations on this region as an enjoyable challenge and potentially things like National Contests with prizes. If you'd be interested and think it's something you might regularly contribute to, comment and sign up at Talk:Baltic states. If there is interest we can move this to a project somewhere and set something up, thanks. ♦ Dr. Blofeld 19:20, 26 September 2016 (UTC)

Now that was quick!!! Like lightening! Imagine if you could do that for content creation we'd pass 10 million by the end of the year ;-)♦ Dr. Blofeld 19:29, 26 September 2016 (UTC)

All UK and Ireland[edit]

Hi, I was wondering if you could use the message sender to send out to all members of UK and Ireland projects, including the county ones. England alone has Category:WikiProject England. Obviously try to exclude the editors already signed up on the page though!

Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge[edit]

Hi, at Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge we're striving to bring about 10,000 article improvements and creations for the UK and Ireland and inspire others to create more content. In order to achieve this we need diversity of content, in all parts of the UK and Ireland on all topics. Eventually a regional contest will be held for all parts of the British Isles, like they were for Wales and the Wedt Country. We currently have just over 1900 articles and need contributors! If you think you'd be interested in collaborating on this and helping reach the target quicker, please sign up and begin listing your entries there as soon as possible! Thanks.♦ Dr. Blofeld 11:47, 28 September 2016 (UTC)

Are you sure? I just checked Wikipedia:WikiProject Bedfordshire members talk pages for instance.♦ Dr. Blofeld 14:48, 28 September 2016 (UTC)

30 odd wikiprojects each with members in Category:WikiProject England from Bedfordshire through to Yorkshire!♦ Dr. Blofeld 14:50, 28 September 2016 (UTC)

OK, thanks.♦ Dr. Blofeld 14:51, 28 September 2016 (UTC)
