Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Julia Bracewell Folkard, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page National Portrait Gallery (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.

Greetings Victuallers, thanks for all that you do here. You've uploaded several images of Nigerian artists from YouTube videos that have been licensed under creative commons.

"Women are everywhere"[edit]

Hi Victuallers. I'm an editor of the Italian Wikipedia. I'm trying to participate to an IEG with the project "Women are everywhere". You will find the draft at this link https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:IEG/Women_are_everywhere It would be great if you could have a look at it. I need any kind of suggestion or advice to improve it. Support or endorsement would be fantastic. Many thanks,--Kenzia (talk) 09:05, 4 April 2016 (UTC)

Thank you very much for your support! Grazie--Kenzia (talk) 09:29, 4 April 2016 (UTC)

Thank you for your comment. As I have already explained to other people I've not been very active on Wikipedia, being very engaged first in my studies and then in my work. I've always been a great user of Wikipedia, and have always been sorry for the gender gap in the women representation. Last year I participated to an Inspire campaign with this idea, and now that I've more time to dedicate to this task I would love to put it in action. If the fact that I've not been very active till now on Wikipedia is a problem, I will not present the project. It would be very kind of you to give me your advise on this point. Thank you.--Kenzia (talk) 10:04, 4 April 2016 (UTC)

In parallel with Black History Month and our editathon there was a contest launched by Wiki Loves Nigeria.

Clarifications[edit]

Hello Victuallers,

Initially, when I noticed that the image I added to the Shirley Frimpong Manso's article was replaced, this was the exact comment I prepared to post on the Wikipedian's talkpage.

"One of the instruments that Wikipedia uses in ensuring that it is not biased for any individual is the concept of WP:CONSENSUS. This is to let you know that I restored the earlier image in the Shirley Frimpong Manso's article because 1. You didn't seek consensus before replacing it. 2. It is of a better quality than the image you added. If you think your image is more appropriate than the previous one I added, kindly create a discussion on the talkpage with your reasons, so we can arrive at a consensus. No Wikipedian (including myself) have the monopoly on any article, so feel free to state your rationale for replacing it."

But on getting here, I discovered it was an more experienced editor that replaced the image, so if it's ok by you, I will really appreciate if you can enlighten me more, if its ok for me to replace an image in an article, even if the previous image has been freely licensed to Wikimedia Commons.

Hi Rosie, I have a complete set so far and occasionally I make a few but usually I create them before I goto bed. I'd like to see them used elsewhere but at least until wiki mania they will be supplied. I won't be there as I have real life commitments. However I have google alerts for "bamkin" so I hope to see a few mentions. I would offer a ppt slide on the progress of our promise last year if useful. I was thrilled when Keilana/you mentioned me in the US Guardian. Oh yes back to the point, I will load up the banners so far. Do you have an ambition to use them?

Hi Roger, Sorry you won't be there. :( WiR is our baby, co-founded by you and me, July 11, 2015; hopefully, we'll get some press this month with all the stuff going on. That said, if you'd like to do a ppt slide or two for my Wikimania presentation, that would be very welcome; please email me off-wiki to coordinate. Re: the banners, yes, I have ambitions to use them for my presentation at next weeks' Wikimedia Diversity Conference.

Contacting Editors from the Ada Lovelace Editathons[edit]

Hi Victuallers,

I hope you don’t mind me contacting you via your talk page. I’m a new Editor to Wikipedia, part of a small research team based at the University of Birmingham in the UK. I’m getting in touch as we’re trying to contact all the Editors who were involved in the Ada Lovelace Editathons in Oxford or London. If you have been, or still are, involved in editing, whatever the scale of your involvement, we would be very grateful for the opportunity to talk to you about your experiences. In the first instance, we’ve set up a short (10 minute) survey, which you can access via my User Talk Pages. If you are interested in helping with our research project, please can you drop me a line?

Thanks, RuthPage (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 08:41, 11 June 2016 (UTC)

Wikimedia Diversity Conference[edit]

Hi, I have just followed the Wikimedia Diversity Conference in Washington. It was very interesting. If my understanding was right, it is you who are at the very origin of the project "Women in red". What a success! Amazing! Everything is much clearer now. Grazie, --Kenzia (talk) 21:35, 18 June 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for taking the trouble Kenzia to contact me. Yes it was my original idea and Rosie was one of the first to realise that we had an important opportunity to mitigate the effect of systemic gender bias .. and maybe we can remove, in time, the root cause. I keep meaning to update my talk page. I'm still working away at the project.... and I better get back to it :-) Victuallers (talk) 21:45, 18 June 2016 (UTC)

I'm very sorry Victuallers, but I have to disagree with you: if you really desire to fix a problem, you have first to make an effort to work on the root cause. Quantity without quality is meaningless. Sincerely, --Kenzia (talk) 07:17, 21 June 2016 (UTC) ????? Amazed. The root cause of systemic bias on Wikipedia has nothing to do with quality or quantity. These are just symptoms. I was pleased that my contribution had been noted - but now you are saying "if you really desire to fix a problem" .... oh so working for n years isn't enough to prove that I even "desire to fix a problem"??? I will with effort try to AGF and assume this was hyperbole. How you work out that me saying that we can "remove, in time, the root cause" ... means that I'm not working on it ??? how do you manage that insight? Victuallers (talk) 15:20, 21 June 2016 (UTC)

It seems to me that I have not said that "you are not working on it". Where have I said that "you are not working on it?". The "you" I used in the sentence: if you really desire... has to be meant in a general way: if someone really desires... This is my POV. May I have my personal POV on how to tackle with problems? May I express my opinions? Thank you--Kenzia (talk) 19:01, 21 June 2016 (UTC) Maybe a language problem as when "you" ask me I assume the you is Kenzia.... and if you say that you mean "if someone really desires" ... then I don't know why you said that you disagreed with me. (I'm sure you don't need my permission to have an opinion/POV.) You are free to disagree with me, but I'm confused as to whether you are. Still, I thank you again for your original compliment. Victuallers (talk) 19:20, 21 June 2016 (UTC)

Yes, I think it is a language problem. For example, I don't understand what it means "I'm confused as to whether you are". It sounds odd, but I assume it is my understanding which is not good enough. In italian, we can use "you" in a general way. Maybe, in english it is not the same. Anyway, I think that in every language one can disagree with someone else on the method, this doesn't imply one assumes that the other person is not working on something. It's not debatable that "Women in red" is a success, and that the numbers are amazing. Thank you for your attention, --Kenzia (talk) 19:38, 21 June 2016 (UTC)

Glad you liked this article ! I made another on a rather more obscure figure Sara J. Duncan - it's thanks to her we have all these wonderful pictures of women active in the AME church in the 1900s. RMSN1 — Preceding unsigned comment added by Rmsn1 (talkcontribs) 17:28, 24 June 2016 (UTC)

Image cropping request[edit]

Hi, I just uploaded File:U.S. Department of Labor signing ceremony 2014.jpg. I need a crop of the redheaded woman on the left for her article, Laura Fortman. Can you help? Thanks, Yoninah (talk) 21:35, 7 July 2016 (UTC)

Thanks very much. I'm just wondering if the sides could be cropped further so we don't have half-faces of men? Yoninah (talk) 22:52, 7 July 2016 (UTC)
Wonderful! Thanks! Yoninah (talk) 13:47, 12 July 2016 (UTC)

Fair use image?[edit]

Thanks for adding an image to Ingrid Christensen. Would you be happy to do something similar for Lois_Jones_(scientist)? There's an image on this article that may be similarly applicable. I've written to the copy-write holder several times, but with no response. T.Shafee(Evo﹠Evo)talk 06:08, 10 July 2016 (UTC) Done and tweeted.

Contests[edit]

User:Dr. Blofeld has created Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/Contests. The idea is to run a series of contests/editathons focusing on each region of Africa. He has spoken to Wikimedia about it and $1000-1500 is possible for prize money. As someone who has previously expressed interest in African topics, would you be interested in contributing to one or assisting draw up core article/missing article lists? He says he's thinking of North Africa for an inaugural one in October. If interested please sign up in the participants section of the Contest page, thanks.♦ --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 01:39, 21 July 2016 (UTC)

Reply[edit]

I don't think there's a way to restore pages in bulk like there's a way to delete them in bulk. One by one will have to do.

If someone's blocked, then they're blocked. They don't get to sneak back and pretend to be someone else who didn't misbehave. If they're lying about their identity, what else could they be lying about? Are you going to trust that all their content is actually valid?

"The admins don't really want to ban me, because I'm too valuable! Look at all the content I create with all my sockpuppets! I can do anything I want, and there will be no consequences!"

I don't know what Slowking4 actually did, because I wasn't involved in that. But he did something. If he really wants to continue creating articles — and it's apparent that he does, I completely understand that desire — then why doesn't he use the energy that it takes to fabricate a new identity, and channel it into making amends for what he did wrong in the first place?

Restoring the content which he created as "Beetstraw" or other sock accounts would be... I believe the phrase is "reinforcing an unhealthy ego structure" (although for all I know, that's just psychobabble). You can pick any of the deleted articles and I'll check them to see if they've been substantially edited by other people, and if they have, I'll restore them. And if they haven't, I won't. DS (talk) 23:58, 22 July 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for the reconsideration. As far as I can see s/he has not created any articles with mistakes in them (any more than we all do!). I realise its galling that the articles will be there but it does seem odd that no one remembers what the original problem was. In the past banned users have written GAs and FAs on simple:wiki that have then been bought here. I believe that the Dictionary of National Biography was partially written by an author who was imprisoned in the UK for being criminally insane. His work is still there and was never deleted. Punishing the articles may "feel good" but actually it is counter productive.... Thanks again for your calm reconsideration. Victuallers (talk) 07:28, 23 July 2016 (UTC)
