Hi[edit]

Hi Roger. Long time, no speak. How are you doing, up north? Derbyshire's not the same without you both, you know. I've been following some of the fallout after WMF's recent desysop and 1yr siteban of a renowned admin with some interest, and noted your past engagement. I presume you were aware of this? Warning: Will take hours of reading. Cheers, Nick Moyes (talk) 13:27, 14 June 2019 (UTC)

PS: I've been helping to give the Teahouse pages a bit of a refresh recently, and noticed how few active 'hosts' we have there who are either clearly young and/or female. It struck me that maybe WP:WOMRED could encourage some of its members to participate there more and thus help newcomers appreciate that Wikipedia isn't just for old white blokes, like me. Anything you can do to encourage more involvement at the Teahouse by experienced female editors would, I'm sure, reflect well on Wikipedia and benefit Women in Red's broad aims. Nick Moyes (talk) 13:40, 14 June 2019 (UTC)

Wikipedia teachmeet[edit]

Ahoy Roger!

Do you ever find yourself back in the wilds of Derbyshire at all, after your move up north? We're looking at arranging a teachmeet here at Derby on the uses of Wikipedia within education, aimed at bringing together people who have used Wikipedia as a teaching and learning tool, and those who are interested in doing so, to share ideas and practice. It's all going to be completely free to attend. I was wondering if you'd be interested in coming along to talk about Women in Red and Wikipedia's role in addressing issues of systemic bias and the gender data gap? Only if you're ever down here, I wouldn't expect you to make a special trip! We're thinking August sometime at the moment.

Cbderbylib (talk) 13:23, 24 June 2019 (UTC)

Ive just returned! Next scheduled trip is maybe July and November. If this looks like a great event then it might justify a trip. Do hope parkywiki is involved. See above. Victuallers (talk) 22:58, 26 June 2019 (UTC)
Have indeed asked Nick_Moyes, waiting on a response! Would be great to get a perspective on Wikipedia and GLAM! Cbderbylib (talk) 10:38, 3 July 2019 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Saly Ruth Ramler died 1993.png[edit]

A tag has been placed on File:Saly Ruth Ramler died 1993.png requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a non-free file with a clearly invalid licensing tag; or it otherwise fails some part of the non-free content criteria. If you can find a valid tag that expresses why the file can be used under the fair use guidelines, please replace the current tag with that tag. If no such tag exists, please add the {{Non-free fair use}} tag, along with a brief explanation of why this constitutes fair use of the file. If the file has been deleted, you can re-upload it, but please ensure you place the correct tag on it.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Vycl1994 (talk) 01:18, 26 June 2019 (UTC)

Agnes Hungerford[edit]

Thank you for creating the article Agnes Hungerford, Lady Hungerford. Four points though.

  1. when you copy text from one article to another you must follow the guidance in WP:Copying within Wikipedia because the text is copyrighted. Even if it is not (and in some circumstances it may not be) then the guidance explains why it is still best practice to record the copy. This is typically done as described in the guideline by stating in the edit history: Text copied from the Wikipedia article Edward Hungerford (died 1522)
  2. The article Edward Hungerford (died 1522) had a citation style (short inline citations supported by long citations in the References section). Try to keep the the same citation style when adding new citations to an article. Some editors get very worked up about very small breaches to WP:CITEVAR.
  3. There is a tailored citation template for ODNB articles {{cite ODNB}}. It makes formatting ODNB citations easier
    • {{Cite web|url=https://www.oxforddnb.com/view/10.1093/ref:odnb/9780198614128.001.0001/odnb-9780198614128-e-14169|title=Hungerford [other married name Cotell], Agnes, Lady Hungerford (d. 1523), murderer {{!}} Oxford Dictionary of National Biography|website=www.oxforddnb.com|language=en|doi=10.1093/ref:odnb/14169|access-date=2019-06-26}}
      • "Hungerford [other married name Cotell], Agnes, Lady Hungerford (d. 1523), murderer | Oxford Dictionary of National Biography". www.oxforddnb.com. doi:10.1093/ref:odnb/14169. Retrieved 2019-06-26.
    • {{Cite ODNB |last=Daybell |first=James|date=3 January 2008 |title=Hungerford [other married name Cotell], Agnes, Lady Hungerford (d. 1523), murderer |id=14169}}
  4. I have removed the addition of "his second wife" from the lead of Edward Hungerford (died 1522) because it is no more relevant to the lead in his biography than adding his achievements to hers.

BTW it was a colourful family; his son (Agnes's sepson) Walter Hungerford, 1st Baron Hungerford of Heytesbury was the first person found guilty under the Buggery Act 1533. -- PBS (talk) 18:20, 26 June 2019 (UTC)

Feel free to make improvements - its a work in progress. Thank you for your additions and the documentation you have made. Victuallers (talk) 22:55, 26 June 2019 (UTC)

Ismahane Elouafi[edit]

Hi @Victuallers: How are you? I came across this: Draft:Ismahane Elouafi scope_creepTalk 16:47, 25 July 2019 (UTC) Looks like it wants deleting? Do you need me to do it? Victuallers (talk) 22:51, 25 July 2019 (UTC)

new pages and question[edit]

Hi missed you from the WiR session yesterday at Edinburgh, I created a new page for Katherine "Kitty" Marshall as well as Violet Aitken now.

I have posted to Ewen as well that on the main page https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suffragette#Great_Britain I noticed there is a section for Ireland and Great Britain but not highlighting Scotland although there is a category and list for Scottish suffragettes from the work you and others are leading on this year. I am rather reluctant to be brave and edit a 'main' article, perhaps you & other WiR leaders can think about increasing the prominence of Scottish women.

Thank you for all the encouragement! Kaybeesquared (talk) 08:33, 27 July 2019 (UTC)

@Kaybeesquared: Brilliant article. We MUST find a pic of her. I cannot see how we missed her, although the confusion with "Catherine Marshall" may be the reason. One of them was an expert in jujitsu....??? Sorry I missed you too. I was at the Pankhurst Centre in Manchester sorting out another editathon. Hopefully next month? Roger aka Victuallers (talk) 11:30, 30 July 2019 (UTC)

Erdbeerteller01.jpg some summer fruits for you Kaybeesquared (talk) 20:46, 30 July 2019 (UTC)

Thanks R this is correct re Katherine "Kitty" Marshall and the ju-jitsu but she was not the original expert who trained the others, checked trusty Atkinson and that was Edith Garrud (and I have linked back now). There is a lot about this stuff in the Museum of London website and one or two pics.

Kaybeesquared (talk) 20:49, 30 July 2019 (UTC)

Patty Talahongva[edit]

You know I barely know how to post new articles on twitter, but one of the articles about her says she has a twitter account. Surely as a journalist, she has a photo she would allow us to have, but I have zero clue how to tweet that and ask her. Any chance when you are tweeting the new articles you can try to ask her? SusunW (talk) 22:48, 1 August 2019 (UTC)

Sure! and Ive also asked for more WiR barnstars to be made Victuallers (talk) 08:35, 2 August 2019 (UTC)

Yippe kay-O! Thank you so much! SusunW (talk) 14:45, 2 August 2019 (UTC)

thanks for Grace Roe recording[edit]

I have just listened to this amazing testimony; and have now linked it to Florence Haig, and Kitty Marshall and Lucy Burns as all these are mentioned. Also linked and added some text in Gerald Gould who edited the "raided" edition of the news

Kaybeesquared (talk) 22:37, 2 August 2019 (UTC)

up to the minute on monuments[edit]

You will see I am getting bolder and amended the monuments and memorials page to show the new one for young suffragette piper Bessie Watson, and updated her page as well with quote from Nicola Sturgeon, even.

On the road[edit]

Looking at your Commons contributions it looks like you were in Slaidburn last week and took several pictures of the youth hostel. A pity you didn't call it as I'v just finished a week as the manager there. Nthep (talk) 19:12, 4 August 2019 (UTC)

R K Wilson[edit]

Roger, could you help yet again with an image. I'm completing an article on the above and would like to use the photo of him in uniform from this article. As he died in 1964 Would it be fair use if I cropped and downsized for use only on this article? Thanks as ever. Papamac (talk) 09:56, 8 August 2019 (UTC)?

Caroline Ford (medical researcher)[edit]

I have removed the photo of Caroline that you had added to her bio as, although she had uploaded it to Commons claiming to be its owner, the metadata states it is the copyright of the photographer. Let's hope another will come to hand. Oronsay (talk) 19:25, 11 August 2019 (UTC) Sorry the person who tried to give it to us misunderstood and thought she "had" permission and that was sufficient.

DYK for Anna B. Eckstein[edit]

Updated DYK query.svgOn 13 August 2019, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Anna B. Eckstein, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that Anna Eckstein (pictured) dressed in white and collected six million signatures to promote world peace before the First World War? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Anna B. Eckstein. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Anna B. Eckstein), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000.

Medinapedia[edit]

Hi Roger. Are you aware of Mediapedia which is based in Tunis? I came across it while writing a biography pf Emna Mizouni, recently honoured as Wikimedian of the Year. See [1] and [2]. Maybe the article on QRpedia should be updated. Are you aware of any other applications?--Ipigott (talk) 14:49, 29 August 2019 (UTC)

Oh I wasn't aware that it made the press Ian but I did a lot of work for it. Onbviously not allowed to edit that page but I wrote this and thisat the time for an invited talk at the OII and for a proposed talk at Wikimania. The map only shows Sayadapedia but I think that was a twin work with Medinapedia. Pigsonthewing did a lot I remember. @Ipigott: Victuallers (talk) 11:29, 2 September 2019 (UTC)

adding WSPU category[edit]

Hi Roger won't get to the WiR next week ( not just because of the witches theme) as I am en route from a conference in Leicester. thanks for noting the change I made adding WSPU as a category, I am working through my watchlist to add it to all relevant suffragettes - it is a great idea to have this as a category due to the mixup in suffragette/suffragist. Best wishes. Kaybeesquared (talk) 16:50, 1 September 2019 (UTC) Oh I shall miss this one again as well - sad - but I'm in France. Hope to see you in October. I'm doing an editathon at the Pankhurst Centre for Ada Lovelace Day. Victuallers (talk) 08:32, 2 September 2019 (UTC)

Publicising our stub contest[edit]

Despite the lack of physical prizes, we are launching a three-month stub contest on 1 October. I was wondering whether you could help to publicise it, perhaps through the social media?--Ipigott (talk) 07:10, 25 September 2019 (UTC)

AfroCine: Join the Months of African Cinema this October![edit]

AfroCine - bare logo.png

Greetings!

After a successful first iteration of the “Months of African Cinema” last year, we are happy to announce that it will be happening again this year, starting from October 1! In the 2018 edition of the contest, about 600 Wikipedia articles were created in at least 8 languages. There were also contributions to Wikidata and Wikimedia commons, which brought the total number of wikimedia pages created during the contest to over 1,000.

The AfroCine Project welcomes you to October, the first out of the two months which have been dedicated to creating and improving content that centre around the cinema of Africa, the Caribbean, and the diaspora. Join us in this global edit-a-thon, by helping to create or expand articles which are connected to this scope. Also remember to list your name under the participants section.

On English Wikipedia, we would be recognizing participants in the following manner:

  • Overall winner (1st, 2nd, 3rd places)
  • Diversity winner
  • Gender-gap fillers
For further information about the contest, the recognition categories and how to participate, please visit the contest page here. For further inquiries, please leave comments on the contest talkpage or on the main project talkpage. See you around :).--Jamie Tubers (talk) 00:50, 30 September 2019 (UTC)

WiR stub contest[edit]

Thanks for your enthusiastic participation in the contest. There are various tools you can use to check the readable prose length of your articles, for example Xtools article info which you don't need to add to your profile. You'll see that under "Prose size", Ada Milea has 821 characters, 144 words, Ada Fijał: 858 characters, 150 words; Ada Salas: 733 characters, 133 words. Ada Zevin, Ada Castells and Ada Lundver are also too short. Perhaps you have been using the Wiki text or the prose size including HTML code. It's the prose size (text only) you need to watch.--Ipigott (talk) 07:47, 2 October 2019 (UTC)

@Ipigott: Oh I was only really just making up the numbers Ian, I don't intend to win just to set a target. I hope to write a whole bunch of Adas. - I've written 20 so far. I had forgotten the tool but I was going for quantity rather than quality. Oh, and I have been tweeting the contest. Thanks for your fine work. Roger aka Victuallers (talk) 09:04, 3 October 2019 (UTC)

You're doing a great job, Roger. The quantity is of course appreciated but I'm afraid we need to be fairly strict about the contest rules. Ada Chumachenko, Ada Pellegrini Grinover, Ada Krivic, Ada Thilen, Ada M. Coe, Ada Nilsson, Ada Balcacer and Ada Arnstad all qualify but Chumchenko, Grinover and Krivic are not yet listed. It would be inspiring if you could add them to the contest page.
I see that someone has created a section on "Newly-created stubs which do not meet contest rules". If you really do not intend to expand any of those that are too short, you could list them there and they will be available for others to destub next month. Great idea to work on all the Adas. And thanks for all the tweets. It all helps.--Ipigott (talk) 09:33, 3 October 2019 (UTC)
You didn't need to move them all, Roger. I've moved those which qualify back to where they should be. I sympathize with the difficulty you have been experiencing in assessing size. Perhaps we should revise our rules for December. Hope you continue to create more stubs. They are all valuable additions. I actually use the script from User:Dr pda/prosesize. If you add it to your profile, it appears in the LH column and you can simply click on it to measure the running prose size of any article.--Ipigott (talk) 12:57, 4 October 2019 (UTC)

DYK[edit]

DYK[edit]

Hello. I have a big favour to ask. There is a draft article in my sandbox for The Kildare Lodge Inn in Minehead, Somerset, England. Once it is in articlespace, would you nominate it for DYK ?? I used to do so myself, but not since the criteria for submissions altered, requiring your assessment of another editor's work. I am not comfortable playing that game. I know it is a bit of a cheek to ask, but "if you don't ask, you don't get". The potential 'hook' is "The Kildare Lodge Inn was an arts and crafts style doctor's surgery, but now offers bed and breakfast in a four-poster bed at a listed building". I do take no for an answer. Thanks, - Derek R Bullamore (talk) 13:06, 26 October 2019 (UTC) Hi Derek, I cannot easiloy help as I havnt done an assessment either - I appeared courtesy of another's generosity. Victuallers (talk) 13:30, 26 October 2019 (UTC)

OK. Fully understand - I will try my luck elsewhere. Thanks for the quick response. - Derek R Bullamore (talk) 14:13, 26 October 2019 (UTC)

WiR stub contest second place[edit]

Congratulations, Roger, once again with 22 acceptable new articles, you have gained second place in the new stubs section of the November contest.--Ipigott (talk) 13:56, 1 December 2019 (UTC)

Thank you for the inputs[edit]

I'm more comfortable adding photos when the subject is dead than not. I am very uncertain about the whole topic... So thank you for taking the action for me. And yes - that lead is better. I had restructured it about 3 times and by the time I was finished I was stuck. ☕ Antiqueight chatter 20:16, 1 December 2019 (UTC) If dead then a pic that is < 300 x 300 is allowed under "fair use". Victuallers (talk) 23:51, 1 December 2019 (UTC)

Yeah- I go for it if dead but I often forget to make the pic small enough. Thank goodness for the bots that chase that up (and people). ☕ Antiqueight chatter 00:47, 2 December 2019 (UTC)

Concentrating on notable women who died in 2019[edit]

Hi Roger, thanks for improving the article Reema Juffali and also for uploading the image of her. Well I found an image of a writer in Commons and her name is Kalalakshmi Thevarajah who notably died in 2019. I also found that there is a lengthy article about her in Tamil Wikipedia but with lack of references. I also searched for the subject in order to contribute to WIR/146 which focus about death of notable women in this year. But my efforts were in vain as I couldn't find even a single source to prove her notability. I am not sure to create even a draft page for the person. Abishe (talk) 03:29, 3 December 2019 (UTC)

Catherine Plunkett[edit]

The cello- that sounds.... possible but it's not that unusual a name. When I was writing this up I have to ensure I wasn't looking at details for the wrong Catherine Plunkett (There was a nun related to St Oliver Plunkett too about the same time and the wife of a Baron before that). I am not sure that a violinist last heard from in 1744 is likely to own a cello in 1818... I suppose unless she married a cellist - that's possible... But then why would it say the cello was hers and not her husband's? ☕ Antiqueight chatter 12:35, 10 December 2019 (UTC)

Feel free to change, but the clincher for me was that the son was identified as the "son of Catherine Plunkett", its not usual to mention just the mother unless she is particularly relevant to the story. You may have noticed that I didnt say they were the same Catherine.... although there cannot be that many string instrument associated C Plunketts. As you like, no offence taken. Victuallers (talk) 16:14, 10 December 2019 (UTC)
I can't decide. I like the idea... ;-) ☕ Antiqueight chatter 16:46, 10 December 2019 (UTC)
