AfD nomination of Old calton cemetery[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

An editor has nominated one or more articles which you have created or worked on, for deletion. The nominated article is Old calton cemetery. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also Wikipedia:Notability and "What Wikipedia is not").

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion(s) by adding your comments to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Old calton cemetery. Please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate.

Please note: This is an automatic notification by a bot. I have nothing to do with this article or the deletion nomination, and can't do anything about it. --Erwin85Bot (talk) 01:06, 19 February 2010 (UTC)

Hi Stephen, thank you for adding this detailed article. Hopefully it won't get deleted as its a fine topic for inclusion. However, Wikipedia requires all articles to be fully verifiable. This is one of the so-called "five pillars of Wikipedia", and means that everything should be referenced to sources which can be checked by anyone. So, your statement that the reference for this article is an unpublished leaflet is not sufficient. Presumably, you have done some extensive research into the topic, and can call on a range of sources for the information you have added. The best approach would therefore be to cite these sources directly, whether they be information in books or primary sources such as Town Council records. I hope you can assist in this, as its not often that someone is willing to add the results of such detailed research to the encyclopedia! Your efforts will certainly be appreciated by myself and other members of WikiProject Edinburgh, an informal collaboration seeking to improve Edinburgh-related articles. Please feel free to contact me if you need any help. Regards, Jonathan Oldenbuck (talk) 11:55, 19 February 2010 (UTC)

15th Battalion Royal Scots[edit]

Stephen, Do you know of this chap from the Royal scots?

New Police chief for Argyll. Newspaper cutting from: The Glasgow Herald – 21 July 1927. Inspector Donald A. Ross, Edinburgh Police, has been appointed Chief Constable of Argyllshire. The new Chief Constable is 33 years of age, was educated at George Watson’s College, Edinburgh and after leaving school entered the law office of Messrs Norman Macpherson and Dunlop, S.S.C., Edinburgh, where he remained till the outbreak of the Great War. He voluntarily enlisted in the 15th Battalion Royal Scots in September 1915, and in January of the following year received a commission in that regiment. He was on active service in France, Belgium and Russia from 1915 to 1920. In 1920 he joined the Edinburgh City Police. He was an Inspector in the Chief Clerk’s department, where he closely studied police work with special reference to its administrative details. Mr Ross is a son of Mr. Roderick Ross, Chief Constable of Edinburgh.

Best regardsBeckenhamBear (talk) 15:38, 1 March 2011 (UTC)

I have a list of several thousand men organised by serial number... there are a few gaps..The date of enlistment fits with the early period when they were organising groups alphabetically and I have a gap at 17736 between Thomas Robertson and James L Ruxton where he would fit nicely.

What I can tell from other sites (National Archive:Campaign Medals WW1) is that Donald A Ross did NOT get a campaign medal for the war... which normally means that they were invalided out before the conclusion.

The Russian bit is always interesting . People always assume it all ended in Nov 1918... but not for everyone. Several battalions were dispatched to Archangel in Russia effectively to sort out the rebellious Russians who dropped out of WW1 early and were to some degree being punished (all very pointless) ... of the wider group I am looking at (15th was disbanded by then and men moved to other battalions) around 20 to 30 died in Russia in 1919 and are listed on the archangel Memorial..

Some war medals read "The Great War: 1914 to 1919"... I have one at home.

Does this help??

I have tentatively added Donald A Ross into my list at 17736--Stephencdickson (talk) 12:27, 2 March 2011 (UTC)

Kilconquhar and minor edits[edit]

I noted with interest your edits to the Kilconquhar article. Can I point out howevere that these were not minor edits so you should not mark them so. For clarification, read WP:MINOR.

Also, your edits were largely unreferenced. Can you please cite them and, for the one reference you did give, can you include the name of the publisher, the relevant page nos. and, if possible, ISBN no.?

All the best, Mutt Lunker (talk) 22:21, 1 October 2011 (UTC)

I notice that you continue to make edits, some quite substantial, without indicating the verifiability of the material. Wikipedia's "content is determined by previously published information rather than by the personal beliefs or experiences of its editors. Even if you're sure something is true, it must be verifiable before you can add it.". Please read WP:V if you do not understand the importance of this or ask me if you require help. Mutt Lunker (talk) 17:33, 24 December 2012 (UTC)
...and you continue to mark edits as minor when they are not. Please stop doing this. Mutt Lunker (talk) 23:17, 28 December 2012 (UTC)
Hi Stephen, I replied to your post on my talk page a few days ago but it occurred to me you may have been expecting any reply to be here (I'd noticed you're still marking all edits as minor, so presumably hadn't read my explanation as to why that is problematic). Hope you find it of use. Mutt Lunker (talk) 11:45, 9 January 2013 (UTC)

More appreciation for you diligence in regards to reward-less efforts on this site despite hard work, as neither the collateral nor the result matter as long as knowledge is preserved and spread for good cause.

A beer for you![edit]

Export hell seidel steiner.png Thank you for the diligent work in establishing which beer was which specific brew and etc. for the wine connoisseur lacking brewing knowledge.

Henderson Street edits[edit]

Hi Stephen, You made an edit on Wikipedia's Henderson Street article recently(re Street lighting) - as follows:

Unusually for the period these at no point were gas lamps. They were built as electric street lights, amongst the first in Britain, in 1891, the first being confined solely to the Shore area. Their height (far too high to light a gas lamp) evidences their original function. Several (including most of those on the Shore) are recent replicas of the Victorian originals recast using one old one as a mould. These date from the early works of the Leith Project, and were completed around 1983. I have temporarily removed this text as it does not have any verifiable sources or references. Can you provide some? i.e. - What is your verifiable source for dating these lights to 1891? Can you provide a verifiable source for the assertion that the lights were originally confined to the Shore area? Again, a verifiable source is required to prove that (some) of these lights are recent recasts - a verifiable indication of which ones would also be useful, if you happen to know.... You say one old mould was used for recasts. Perhaps you know this from personal involvement in the project - but it still needs a verifiable source. You say these recasts date from the Leith Project around 1983. Good to know - but again, you haven't backed this up with a citation from a verifiable source. I'm sure you can appreciate the need for all users to be able to check that your information is correct. Best Lisaseventyfive (talk) 12:17, 5 November 2012 (UTC)

Leith Mural pic[edit]

Thanks for your message. I'll investigate. One of my Leith-born relatives who was a child during the Great War had an abiding interest in the Gretna rail disaster and it was probably from her that I was given the erroneous idea that it was a "Leith Pals" Battalion. I'll sort it out. Kim Traynor | Talk 18:43, 17 February 2014 (UTC)

I've checked the edits history for the page and find that I don't feature as a contributor. That means someone else posted the image and created the caption, likely misled by my caption on Commons which misidentified the soldiers as belonging to a Pals Battalion. I've removed the image from the page and amended the Commons caption. Kim Traynor | Talk 18:53, 17 February 2014 (UTC)

No, it is not. The problem is that you are marking all your edits as minor. That isn't allowed. It's a relatively simple point; if you're in doubt, don't mark it as minor. If anybody could possibly object to the change, don't mark it as minor. Again, ping me if you need help. --John (talk) 20:42, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

Hi The photo you added of the grave inscription is actually that of John Ritchie Findlay's (1824-1898) eldest son Sir John Ritchie Findlay (1866-1930). (Unimaginative child naming!)

September 2014[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Waldhorn. I noticed that you made a change to an article, St Pancras Old Church, but you didn't provide a reliable source. It's been removed and archived in the page history for now, but if you'd like to include a citation and re-add it, please do so! If you need guidance on referencing, please see the referencing for beginners tutorial, or if you think I made a mistake, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you.  —Waldhorn (talk) 04:51, 25 September 2014 (UTC) The source is standing in the church and reading the gravestone!!! I note the names and then cross check who in the graveyard is mentioned in Wikipedia but does not have their grave location shown, It seems anti-productive to remove such information and you are the first person to ever remove such useful information on the basis that it is not written down somewhere. The graveyard itself is a public place and the information is verifiable in that sense. On the articles of those referred to I give a precise grave location to add future searchers as "in the cemetery" is too vague". I can refer upwards in Wikipedia if you are not happy with my response but my normal grave-location excersises are usually received with thanks from Wikipedia rather than REMOVED> you must remember the PURPOSE of such information. Are YOU claiming these people are NOT there? Go and look for yourself before you delete!!--Stephencdickson (talk) 09:42, 25 September 2014 (UTC) By the way, I was planning to edit the article further, adding the names of those already with Wikipedia articles listed on the Burdett Coutts Memorial to "graves" lost... this includes Sir John Gurney... whose monument is still there and legible...the only issue on his monument is that due to the building of the railway his inscription faces the boundary.. but it is odd that no-one has the gumption to stick there head around and read the reverse. Each of my additions can be checked in PHOTOGRAPHIC PROOF on the articles of the persons involved--Stephencdickson (talk) 10:00, 25 September 2014 (UTC)

Is there any point of me adding further edits re the Burdett Coutts memorial or would you also remove that??--Stephencdickson (talk) 10:04, 25 September 2014 (UTC)

Hi Stephencdickson. Thank you for your questions. Are you able to insert citations in the St Pancras Old Church article, either via a secondary source, such as a published book, or at least create a reference describing the location within the church building? Alternately, in the case of multiple burials, perhaps would you be able to create a media gallery showing images that corroborate your additions? Otherwise, your edits look like very much like WP:OR, which is best to avoid. But, I suspect that you have some valuable source material that can be added to an article like this with a bit of work. Let me know your thoughts. Regards —Waldhorn (talk) 08:15, 26 September 2014 (UTC)

I am happy to add photographic proof but it would clutter the article. The John Gurney grave is perhaps the oddest omission as it is pretty big, in good condition, and still legible... its only issue is that it faces a hedge as it has been cut short on setting due to the railway... amusingly even Baroness Burdett Coutts researchers seem to have missed it.. as no-one seems to have ever popped their head round the back...I have already added photographic proof to those names I added on their own article... but I know Wikipedia does not allow use of Wikipedia as a reference as it creates a viscous circle in cases of error... that said much written referencing is unreliable...personally, where graves are concerned, I believe my own eyes... if there is a large monument with the correct name, dates and background then it is the correct grave... that said "in memory of" often alludes to bodies buried elsewhere...It would seem a shame to remove these useful additions I made. If I search and search I may find a book that backs it up.. but on other graveyards and cemetery articles which I have written or edited I have not been previously challenged on this sort of addition...--Stephencdickson (talk) 10:11, 26 September 2014 (UTC)

Notice of No Original Research Noticeboard discussion[edit]

Hello, Stephencdickson. This message is being sent to inform you that a discussion is taking place at Wikipedia:No original research/Noticeboard regarding an issue with which you may have been involved. The thread is St Pancras Old Church OR. Thank you. -- —Waldhorn (talk) 06:13, 1 October 2014 (UTC) I added a source as you requested, plus corroborative photos, so I am not sure what your continuing issue is?? I find it frustrating when references state things like "buried in Cemetery X" when cemetery X contains 30,000 to 50,000 graves....pinpointing locations is useful but is only instigated by someone pointing out that the grave is in there in the first place? do you understand the logic? there is little point giving a cemetery without a location... it serves as much function as saying that someone is in the phone book without giving a number... it may have been polite to have responded to my last point and re-read the article before complaining--Stephencdickson (talk) 23:46, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

Adding images at random?[edit]

Hi, I've removed an image from the Banks article, and note that you are adding many images to many articles, not quite sure why - but I see that several are from Wedgewood: this suggests that you may have a trove of Wedgewood images, and are looking about for a home for them? This is a backwards way of building articles, and is as likely to make them worse as better. In the case of the Banks article, there are certainly (more than) enough images of the man there already, and more is definitely worse. Please try to be selective in your additions to Wikipedia; it is already useful to add the images to Commons, and if you have many from one source or on one topic, it would be good to make Commons pages of those images, rather than trying to cram them all into Wikipedia willy-nilly.

If you do find an article without too many images already, do consider not adding at or near the top: many of your Wedgewood images have a 'legacy' feel to them, so they may make more sense near the end, as long as you steer clear of disturbing the formatting of the References list.

One more thing: if you are adding tall (portrait) images, they should be upright, i.e. |upright|thumb|filename... so they occupy about the same area as a standard landscape image. All the best, Chiswick Chap (talk)

Rather than a "treasure trove" I was simply adding a small number of images from the British Museum, mainly looking to populate little or unillustrated articles. I admit Banks has several images but none in relief or low relief so I felt it was not a redundant exercise--Stephencdickson (talk) 21:03, 10 November 2014 (UTC)

Glad to hear it's not very many, and that we agree about Banks. However I note that you're still not marking images 'upright'. Chiswick Chap (talk) 21:40, 10 November 2014 (UTC)

Edit summaries[edit]

Please give more thought to your edit summaries. "addition" isn't a very meaingful comment (and "--~~~~~" doesn't work there). -- Pemilligan (talk) 18:58, 29 November 2014 (UTC)

Restored back to its ungrammatical unuseful form... well done.. very constructive... if i put "bad grammar" it might be accurate but I do not wish to upset the author --Stephencdickson (talk) 19:13, 29 November 2014 (UTC)
If your change to Gunman's Walk had just been a matter of grammar, then "bad grammar" would have been a good edit summary. The problem with your addition, as I expressed in the edit summary, was the appearance of original research (though it appeared to be an expression of opinion, too). It would have been appropriate to provide a supporting citation given the new content you were adding. -- Pemilligan (talk) 20:01, 29 November 2014 (UTC) sounds a bit hypocritical given that much of your own additions appear original research--Stephencdickson (talk) 10:41, 30 November 2014 (UTC)

January 2015[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm CaroleHenson. I noticed that you made a change to an article, Phoebe Anna Traquair, but you didn't provide a reliable source. It's been removed and archived in the page history for now, but if you'd like to include a citation and re-add it, please do so! If you need guidance on referencing, please see the referencing for beginners tutorial, or if you think I made a mistake, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks for your interest in Phoebe Anna Traquair. Unfortunately, content was added that was either not sourced, inserted into previously cited content (which makes it appear that all info came from the source when it did not), or incomplete citation information (book for info about the brother - valid ISBN ?? - I'll check). So, your edits will reverted, but I'll try and see if I can find good, reliable sources for your additions. If you want to help, that would be great! CaroleHenson (talk) 22:36, 12 January 2015 (UTC)

It is all from the SAME source which I cited in the other edits,,, re-citing it looked very crowded but I will do so again... to save time it is useful (and polite) to contact the editor (as most do) rather than delete as it saves EVERYONE (you and I) time and effort to repeat --Stephencdickson (talk) 23:01, 12 January 2015 (UTC) I also note that you removed the referenced additions ! what is THAT about???--Stephencdickson (talk) 23:03, 12 January 2015 (UTC) I cited the reference with ISBN number... if you do not cease wasting other peoples time I will report this--Stephencdickson (talk) 23:05, 12 January 2015 (UTC)
I found sources for some of the information... like I said in the edit summary, maybe it got truncated, that the one source that I saw seemed to have a weird ISBN and I'd look for the source and provide complete citation info.--CaroleHenson (talk) 23:10, 12 January 2015 (UTC)

I agree it is weird but it is what the book says... I think because it is a quasi government publication... that however is a pretty feeble reason to delete --Stephencdickson (talk) 23:20, 12 January 2015 (UTC)

I think I was thrown from the start of adding dob/place of birh information that was NOT in the cited source (but I've got a source for that now) - and then that book info was incomplete. It should be clearer once I finish some reference/citation clean-up.--CaroleHenson (talk) 23:26, 12 January 2015 (UTC)

Isobel Wylie Hutchison[edit]

I have recently created a page about this lady and would like to put a paragraph on the Kirkliston page about her if no one objects.I will then link it to her page

"Isobel Wylie Hutchison was a Scottish Arctic Traveller and Plant Collector. She was born in 1889 in Carlowrie Castle, Kirkliston and lived there until her death in 1982. She travelled to Iceland, Greenland, the Lofoten Islands Alaska and the Aleutian Islands collecting plants and information for her books. She travelled on her own. She wrote several books about her travels, wrote poems, painted pictures which she published on her return." Peter DC (talk) 14:27, 16 March 2015 (UTC) This is usually best done as a Famous Residents paragraph with a very short description "Arctic traveller" as it otherwise pre-empts that she is the ONLY famous person from Kirkliston (probably not)...--Stephencdickson (talk) 12:12, 17 March 2015 (UTC)

Minor edits, again[edit]

Information icon Thank you for your contributions. Please mark your edits as "minor" only if they are minor edits. In accordance with Help:Minor edit, a minor edit is one that the editor believes requires no review and could never be the subject of a dispute. Minor edits consist of things such as typographical corrections, formatting changes or rearrangement of text without modification of content. Additionally, the reversion of clear-cut vandalism and test edits may be labeled "minor". Thank you. Mutt Lunker (talk) 09:08, 3 May 2015 (UTC)

I am not sure of your point here. My edits here were all non-minor APART from the final one. The final one simply corrected the disambiguation, which connected to a group of Royal Society options. Surely correction of an erroneous link is minor??--Stephencdickson (talk) 09:30, 3 May 2015 (UTC)
I am not sure which edit you are referring to as my point is general rather than specific, in that you are still, after years, habitually marking a high proportion of your edits as minor when they are not, by the definition used in Wikipedia. "Minor edit" does not mean additions of short passages or addition of content that you believe to be self-evident. Minor edits are, as laid out above, such things as typos, formatting changes etc. and any modification of, removal of or addition of content means that the edit is not minor. I don't see an evident agenda behind your edits but the marking of non-minor edits as minor by editors may cause an eyebrow to raise as an indicator of an attempt to avoid scrutiny. Whatever, it is not good practice to so please don't do it; if in doubt, do not mark it as minor please. Please read the help page because it is very clear on the matter. Mutt Lunker (talk) 12:52, 3 May 2015 (UTC)

You are not answering my question and do not seem to have looked at the sequence of edits. Are you saying a correction to a disambiguation counts as a major edit? --Stephencdickson (talk) 12:57, 3 May 2015 (UTC)

Per above "I am not sure which edit you are referring to as my point is general rather than specific". I don't know to what sequence of edits you are referring and I am not referring to them. Whatever edits you are referring to, if they regard matters of fact then they are probably not minor and "if you are in doubt about whether an edit is minor or not, it is always safer not to mark it as minor".
I am referring to your editing in general. For instance you have even marked your posts above as minor, which is incorrect. These are not minor either: [1], [2], [3], [4], [5]. I am not passing comment on their validity or otherwise, for instance adding a new reference is clearly a good thing but by definition makes it not a minor edit. Please read that help page, it's very clear. Mutt Lunker (talk) 14:33, 3 May 2015 (UTC)

DYK Nomination[edit]

I recently nominated Andrew Brown (minister), an article you created, for Wikipedia's Did you know section. If the nom is approved, a link to the article will appear on the main page at some point. You may want to watch {{Did you know nominations/Andrew Brown (minister)}} in case questions are asked about the article during the nomination process.

Burns, Brown... whatever[edit]

  • I saw your request at LoS's talk page. She appears to be on WP sporadically lately, so I did the move to Thomas Burns (Scottish minister) for you. You could have done it yourself; for future use, the "move" tab up next to the "history" tab lets you change page names. --Floquenbeam (talk) 22:45, 16 June 2015 (UTC)

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

December 2015[edit]

Information icon Your recent edit to King Edward's School, Birmingham appears to have added the name of a non-notable entity to a list that normally includes only notable entries. In general, a person or organization added to a list should have a pre-existing article before being added to most lists. If you wish to create such an article, please first confirm that the subject qualifies for a separate, stand-alone article according to Wikipedia's notability guideline. I also removed Crew's entry from Tipton . If he's notable please write his article first, or procide multiple independent sources to show his notability. I don't believe simply being a Fellow of the Society is sufficient. Meters (talk) 21:39, 4 December 2015 (UTC)

If you google Crew you will find he is far from a non-entity. I will publish a wikipedia article on him next week. He is responsible for the current path of animal genetics and has dozens of existing references on Wikpedia alone.--Stephencdickson (talk) 22:23, 4 December 2015 (UTC)
I made no claims as to his notability or lack thereof. I simple point out that he cannot be include din list of notable people without having proof in Wikipedia of his notability. It's not up to me or anyone else to prove the notability of someone you are attempting to add to a list of notables. Meters (talk) 22:28, 4 December 2015 (UTC)

William Barr McKinnon Duncan[edit]

Thank you for this new article. One of the few people with articles articles on Wikipedia who attended my old school Ardrossan Academy - but quite a few years before me. My father was a scientist in the ICI Nobel Division research labs for the whole of his post-university career, and visited the United States frequently on business, so he would certainly have known Sir William. When he first flew to the States, the planes had propellors; on his last trip, he flew on Concorde, before taking early retirement to look after my mother, who was dying of cancer (the worst time of my life).

Ways to improve Robert Dundas of Beechwood[edit]

Hi, I'm NearEMPTiness. Stephencdickson, thanks for creating Robert Dundas of Beechwood!

I've just tagged the page, using our page curation tools, as having some issues to fix. Thanks for writing this article. I personally think, the second sentence of the introduction could be obmitted ("the narcissistic and incestuous bonds between upper class families"), because the article does not specify an specific narcism or incest

The tags can be removed by you or another editor once the issues they mention are addressed. If you have questions, you can leave a comment on my talk page. Or, for more editing help, talk to the volunteers at the Teahouse. NearEMPTiness (talk) 18:17, 24 March 2016 (UTC)

The article DOES specifically mention marriage to other members of the Dundas family and both property transactions and links to other members of the Dundas family so how much more explicit do you wish? If you look at the Dundas family tree in other articles you will see this is a repeated pattern.--Stephencdickson (talk) 21:27, 24 March 2016 (UTC)

Thomas Gibson and Lister Medal[edit]

Hi there. Thanks for creating the article Thomas Gibson (surgeon). I was hoping you might be able to solve a mystery regarding who was awarded the 1987 Lister Medal. This award (at that time) was given every three years. The bulletins of the Royal College of Surgeons of England state that the 1987 award was made to Patrick Forrest (no article on him yet, I believe he is still alive as I have been unable to find anything indicating otherwise), but the sources produced by The Royal Society of Edinburgh and Glasgow University state that the award was made to Thomas Gibson. This has stumped me ever since. See this archived talk page note. Would you have any insight into what the answer is here? I suppose contacting the awarding bodies and seeing if they can shed light on this is one approach that might help. Carcharoth (talk) 17:29, 7 July 2016 (UTC)

I had already spotted this discrepancy... I was quoting the site referenced which seemed reliable enough.. the article on Lister Medal is not specific about where each name comes from. I have not checked BMJ which would be the best reliable source.--Stephencdickson (talk) 17:36, 7 July 2016 (UTC)
I have found some more on this, and will put it on the article talk page which I where I should have started this discussion, really. Let's hope that there is an explanation! Carcharoth (talk) 17:42, 7 July 2016 (UTC) I've now put what I've found so far on the article talk page. Carcharoth (talk) 18:00, 7 July 2016 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Requests for permissions/Autopatrolled[edit]

Have you considered asking for autopatrolled status at Wikipedia:Requests for permissions/Autopatrolled?

Hindostgan[edit]

Hi Stephandickson, I have undone your changes to the article HMS Hindostan (1804). There were many vessels named Hindostan in the 19th Century. See Hindostan (ship) and Hindostan (East Indiaman) for just some examples. The history in the article you changed is well-established in Admiralty records. Furthermore, a round trip between England and Tasmania would take about 8 months under sail. 150 voyages would take 100 years, without even leaving time for loading and unloading. I believe that you conflated the number of passengers on one voyage on a merchant vessel named Hindostan with the history of HMS Hindostan. Regards, Acad Ronin (talk) 15:41, 18 November 2016 (UTC)

ArbCom Elections 2016: Voting now open![edit]

punctuation[edit]

You seem to be consistently making the same punctuation mistake, thus:

wrong: Prof Edward Lindsay Ince FRSE (1891-1941) was a
right: Prof Edward Lindsay Ince FRSE (1891–1941) was a

Ranges of years, pages, or other numbers use an en-dash, not a hyphen. For example:

wrong: pages 523-48
right: pages 523–48

This is codified in WP:MOS. Michael Hardy (talk) 21:33, 23 November 2016 (UTC) As far as I recall my edit on this touched neither hyphen nor en-dash... it was taking out the full dates and moving them to body of text to allow more ease of correct searching in wider internet searches, but I note your comment and will endeavour to remember to use the correct format--Stephencdickson (talk) 10:27, 24 November 2016 (UTC)

Joseph Hurlock[edit]

I was interested to find, in Thomas Banks, your edit of a couple of years ago about Joseph Hurlock. I'm drafting an article about Hurlock at present. My interest came from the realisation that he was an FRS (as you added). I have quite an old edition of Gunnis, which is the reference in Joseph Hurlock as things stand, which doesn't comment on him. If you have some other reference for Hurlock, as FRS, it would be helpful. The date of death on the FRS list is the burial date at Stoke Newington, but some outside checking would also be good. Charles Matthews (talk) 12:07, 3 January 2017 (UTC)

After some more work, I'm not too concerned: there is a plausible link through the Society of Arts, and the other Joseph Hurlock, the surgeon, looks too old for the FRS. Charles Matthews (talk) 16:35, 3 January 2017 (UTC)

Prodigious work[edit]

Hi Stephen - I'm just letting you know what I'm up to in case you see my name pop up in your watchlist regularly. I came by your user page recently and was amazed by how many articles you have created - truly fine work. I gotta say though your referencing sucks big time. No worries though - I'm a gnome who actually likes formatting referrences so have been cleaning up your articles' ref sections for a few days now, using a tool called Refill primarily, but the tool does not fix PDFs so I am also systematically dealing with those manually. I suppose I need to get a life but your prodigious output is deserving of my time. Do let me know if I make any mistakes along the way, (typos can crop up from time to time). MarkDask 20:14, 25 January 2017 (UTC) Noted... I do concentrate mainly on setting up the basic articles and "filling gaps" and am aware that they are not perfect in format etc. All input is appreciated--Stephencdickson (talk) 10:05, 26 January 2017 (UTC)

Skene inconsistency[edit]

What is said on Andrew Skene and on Henry Jardine about James Skene of Rubislaw doesn't match up. I guess the latter is wrong. Charles Matthews (talk) 11:25, 24 February 2017 (UTC) I see what you mean. I must have quoted from one of the sources which confuses the two as mentioned in the Andrew Skene article. I will try to iron out the inconsistency. Well spotted !! --Stephencdickson (talk) 17:06, 24 February 2017 (UTC)

Charles George Lambie[edit]

Hi Stephen, I will have to remove Charles George Lambie from the Strathallan School alumni. Stanley House School and Strathallan School were separate entities.

Charles Illingworth illustration[edit]

Thank you for the illustration at Charles Illingworth. May I ask whether you drew that after an existing source and which source you used? I've been browsing through the other 40+ portraits that you've done (I stopped after looking back to, they are very impressive, and the style is an interesting one. I thought about listing them somewhere, but thought I should ask you first. Do you have a listing of those illustrations anywhere? Carcharoth (talk) 14:27, 6 April 2017 (UTC) Yes they are all my own drawings... usually pastel mixed with pen as I an a competent artist... most I do are composites of whatever I can find online and are deliberately created to avoid copyright issues as they then become my own material. It is not intended be done as self-promotion... simply filling gaps needing filled--Stephencdickson (talk) 16:01, 6 April 2017 (UTC) I could add a list on my own User page I guess--Stephencdickson (talk) 16:02, 6 April 2017 (UTC)

Up to you. I'm the sort of person that likes to see things like that all in one place, in a gallery even, but I can see why you might want to avoid giving the impression that you were self-promoting. Am glad to hear they are composite works, as that does indeed avoid copyright issues! Do you take commissions? I am asking tongue-in-cheek, as a couple of medical biographies where I thought this sort of illustration might be possible are: Geoffrey Jefferson, James Learmonth, Victor Negus, Stewart Duke-Elder, Russell Brock, Baron Brock (these are from Lister Medal). For some, there might only be one picture so that would be a problem. Or there might be none. Don't feel at all obliged. I am sure photos will surface eventually, and become freely available even later still. Carcharoth (talk) 16:10, 6 April 2017 (UTC)

I will take a look and see if I can create something... I quite enjoy the task--Stephencdickson (talk) 16:31, 6 April 2017 (UTC)

Thanks. Really pleased to see some of those articles now illustrated! :-) BTW, I noticed on a brief perusal of your user page that you have done some WWI research. Have you edited much in that area on Wikipedia, or is it is case of too many possibilities and deciding to focus on one area? Your work on the Fellows of the Royal Society of Edinburgh (and the extent of the articles created there) is extremely impressive. Carcharoth (talk) 05:12, 8 April 2017 (UTC) The WW1 stuff is most specifically on 1500 volunteers for the 15th Royal Scots = the 1st Edinburgh Pals Battalion aka the Manchester-Scottish...the project does not really have an end as I have been tracking done all the graves plus names on UK memorials...I spent 5 years on it, As a forgotten bit of history many died at Archangel in northern Russia in January 1919 when Britain invaded Russia as a punishment for withdrawing their troops... which is why many UK memorials to WW1 say 1914-1919 not 1914-1918. The research is so extensive that it cannot really be condensed for wikipedia... plus most falls into the forbidden area of original research. It is amazing how different things are ON THE GROUND than just reading regimental histories! Where are you based?--Stephencdickson (talk) 10:17, 8 April 2017 (UTC)
I am in London. WWI articles are one of the areas I like to edit in. I see what you mean about the research being so extensive it can't be condensed for Wikipedia. I started on what I thought would be a fairly simple listing of UK Members of Parliament that died in WWI, and the memorials they appear on, and it ballooned out of control. See User:Carcharoth/WWI and WWII deaths (the WWII MP deaths are listed there, and the sons and other relatives on the parliamentary memorials as well). I intend to return to that, if I can work out where to draw the line and put some bits in articles and save other bits for use elsewhere (hopefully). Bit off topic now. Finding the time to finish off (or make progress with) such projects is difficult. It can take years! Carcharoth (talk) 17:43, 8 April 2017 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Sketchy Beats[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Sketchy Beats has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

The coverage (references, external links, etc.) does not seem sufficient to justify this article passing Wikipedia:General notability guideline requirement. If you disagree and deprod this, please explain how it meets them on the talk page here in the form of "This article meets criteria A and B because..." and ping me back through WP:ECHO or by leaving a note at User talk:Piotrus. Thank you.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages 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 page 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. Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 09:33, 30 May 2017 (UTC)

I have taken a second look. I still don't think the topic meets WP:GNG. Most sources focus on the business of Sketchy Beats Cafe indeed, but even here we have trouble with WP:NORG. Coverage is IMHO sparse, niche/regional (city-level), in passing, and of dubious reliability. I just don't think this reaches the threshold of what we should have in encyclopedia. For this to be notable as an art concept, I'd like to see some discussion of it in academia, but given the publication delays it may be years before that happens. Barring that, coverage form reliable media that has impact/size larger than in-city newspaper/radio/TV would help. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 04:22, 31 May 2017 (UTC)

I will add in some of the several newspaper references. ok? --Stephencdickson (talk) 13:59, 31 May 2017 (UTC)

Survey Invite[edit]

I'm working on a study of political motivations and how they affect editing. I'd like to ask you to take a survey. The survey should take 5 minutes. Your survey responses will be kept private. Our project is documented at https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Research:Wikipedia_%2B_Politics.

Survey Link: http://uchicago.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_80J3UDCpLnKyWTH?Q_DL=3dz0m2ubQw1KSnb_80J3UDCpLnKyWTH_MLRP_5ANvH6hKtW6xLz7&Q_CHL=gl

I am asking you to participate in this study because you are a frequent editor of pages on Wikipedia that are of political interest. We would like to learn about your experiences in dealing with editors of different political orientations.

Sincere thanks for your help! Porteclefs (talk) 19:52, 28 July 2017 (UTC)

Hastings[edit]

Thanks for your edit to Hastings. I moved the entry for Ernest R. Matthews to List of people from Hastings because although notable he isn't as well-known as the other few summarised in the Hastings article. I enjoyed reading about him! Shhhnotsoloud (talk) 05:01, 31 August 2017 (UTC)

6th/8th Baronet[edit]

Hi Stephen,

I've moved Sir Alexander Grant, 8th Baronet back to the old title, as 8th not 6th - the details in the article match those in the History of Parliament and Oxford DNB which confirm him as the 8th. He was also born ten years after the 5th Baronet died, so couldn't possibly be his son!

Is it possible that there was some weird numbering issue and the 8th is down in some sources as the 6th - I know this has happened for some peerages, but not sure about baronetcies? Andrew Gray (talk) 15:00, 22 September 2017 (UTC)

I am writing an article on the nephew at the moment and there is definitely much confusion between the two people... it also seems odd that the earlier one has the same dates (but not year) for birth and death and it looks like at least some of the info has leaked from one to the other. As far as I can see the one I am looking at (as a member of RSE) seems to say 8th baronet on his grave and his father is listed as Robert Innes Grant, 7th baronet brother to Alexander ... which title he inherited on his death... therefore the existing article logically should be 6th not 8th... I will try to find more sources... I am pretty sure the Alexander Grant I am studying is NOT the 10th baronet... which would follow from your numbering.. ONDB is certainly not infallible, it could be a simple slip confusing the two--Stephencdickson (talk) 15:13, 22 September 2017 (UTC)

I think I need to do a diagram to work it out,,, there seems to also be more than one Robert Innes Grant. I know that sometimes peers are 6th of one title and 8th of another. I guess if I leave the numeral out of my article it leaves it more flexible--Stephencdickson (talk) 15:18, 22 September 2017 (UTC)

Okay, I think I have it. Certainly the RSE list seems to say that Sir Alexander (1826-1884) was the 8th Baronet. However, we have an article at Sir Alexander Grant, 10th Baronet (the chap you're working on?) which seems to match fairly well; it disagrees on some minor details but is basically consistent with the ODNB, which calls him the 10th, as does the National Portrait Gallery.
However, the original DNB entry for Alexander (1826-1884) from 1900 has him down as son "of the seventh baronet", and the DNB entry for Alexander Cray (1782-1854) calls him the sixth. The Venn Cambridge Alumni entry for Alexander (1826-1884) calls him the 10th Baronet, but notes that the DNB and one other source give him as the 8th. It's worth noting that the ODNB entries will have been revisions of the older DNB ones, so it implies that a historian has looked at it fairly recently and updated it with the new numbers; the Venn entry also indicates someone making an explicit decision.
In the ODNB entry for Alexander (1705-1772), 5th Baronet, it says that he claimed a dormant baronetcy; ie he went back and demonstrated the link between himself and the last known holder. Some of the people in between were not included in the count at the time (because they themselves never claimed the title); note that this 1859 source goes straight from James (1st) to Patrick (2nd) passing over Sweton. The list at Grant baronets has Sweton as 3rd and Patrick as 4th.
Putting it all together, it suggests that Alexander (1826-1884) called himself the 6th Baronet in his lifetime, but the historians now consider him the 8th. Likewise, Alexander Cray (1782-1854) called himself the 8th Baronet (which would explain the gravestone!) but is now considered the 10th. Andrew Gray (talk) 20:18, 22 September 2017 (UTC)

A bit strange... it implies two earlier baronets mysteriously appeared. As a GUESS I think the Grants were some of the several families granted baronetcies in Nova Scotia in the 17th century. I think the Nova Scotia baronetcy predates the Scottish one but is probably the same family i.e. there is no 1st and 2nd Baronet of Dalvey... and the "first baronet of Dalvey" is the 3rd baronet--Stephencdickson (talk) 20:40, 22 September 2017 (UTC)
