Thank you for this woman and others! - dance and singing, peace doves and icecream - Freiheit! to listen to, - the livestream has it all, safety announcement, speeches, intermission ... but there's a good legend to find the symphony movement. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 07:34, 24 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Alice P. Gannett[edit]

Hi. The photo in her biography is lousy but it's the only one I felt comfortable uploading. Can this one or this one be uploaded to WikiCommons under a suitable license? --Rosiestep (talk) 18:59, 24 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

US licences after 1925 are not my speciality Rosie. Needs a bit of study. Victuallers (talk) 19:56, 25 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Ok; thanks. No problem. --Rosiestep (talk) 20:15, 25 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Rosiestep: I think the template "Template:PD-US-no notice" can be used on commons for USA published pics after 1927 IF there is no known photographer or copyright claim when published. HTH Victuallers (talk) 14:19, 28 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks, Roger. This really helped. --Rosiestep (talk) 15:19, 28 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Hauser & Wirth[edit]

Hi Victuallers, nice to meet you! My name is Maddy. Art gallery Hauser & Wirth's article is very brief and outdated, and I'm hoping to work with the community to improve it. As an active member of WP:MUSEUMS, I thought you might be interested in my proposed changes at Talk:Hauser & Wirth. I'd love to discuss this further. Thank you, Maddy at H&W (talk) 15:52, 25 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

I'm backed up at the moment and your changes look non-trivial. Come back if you cannot find help elsewhere. Victuallers (talk) 19:53, 25 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Hi Victuallers, hope you are doing well. Unfortunately I've been unable to find help elsewhere so far, though another editor or two did appear to show some interest. If you have more time now, I would love to discuss my proposed changes with you. Thanks again, Maddy at H&W (talk) 08:32, 16 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

APPLICATION FOR MENTORSHIP[edit]

I am looking for a mentor. I wanna go through a course under your tutelage for a period of time that you determine for a counter vandalism course and/or a course on proper page creation. After which I will be given rollback and new page reviewer privileges. I'm reaching out to you because I wanna do this the proper way. It will be a honor to learn. Cheers Amaekuma (talk) 07:49, 13 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Hi, as you may know I have created thousands of articles but I only exercise my contra-vandal rights as an admin rarely. I'd be pleased to help you. I will look at your profile and you might care to look at Women in Red which is where I direct most of my efforts. I did win a competion for writing articles about Nigerians one year and I was very active in supporting actors in a recent TV series that was made in Nigeria.

Paola Cabezas[edit]

I don't know if know it, but Cabezas translates into head and a hook on her hair seems really appropriate to me. Thanks for that experience.Paradise Chronicle (talk) 06:08, 24 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@Paradise Chronicle: Thank you for getting involved and substantially improving her article. I had noticed the head link - thats nice. Surprised you are not convinced by the image license. If you click through the you find its released with a free to use license by the Equadorian government on Flickr (ie solid claim from a solid source) There are 1000s of similar pics from this source on commons - it was the photo that inspired this (and another dozen or so) articles I have recently written. I keep saying that photos inspire articles so I thought I had to walk the talk. Victuallers (talk) 07:38, 24 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
You inspired Sofía Espín too, which you may also find interesting. Victuallers (talk) 11:01, 24 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Nice one[edit]

Thanks for the additions to Pooja Sharma (entrepreneur), especially the disambig page, somehow that slipped my mind! Mujinga (talk) 09:02, 26 May 2022 (UTC) You are welcome - its fun working with another Victuallers (talk) 15:20, 26 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

David Canzini[edit]

Don't know if you are sufficiently interested in politics to deal with this, Roger, but David Canzini was profiled this morning on BBC 4. It was pointed out that he had no Wikipedia page. If you don't feel like making a start on it, perhaps you know someone who would be interested. It would be good to turn his red link blue before the profile is repeated this evening. There's some good background on the FT here. There's also a good piece in the Guardian.--Ipigott (talk) 05:36, 29 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Thanks Ian, but I'm doing Ecuadorian politics which surprisingly seems much more principalled than the UKs current populist. I think his supporters are making themselves less notable by having purchasable integrity. Victuallers (talk) 08:07, 29 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Thought as much. I've also alerted Martinevans123 and posted a message on WP:UK. If there's nothing within the next few hours, I'll do it myself.--Ipigott (talk) 08:40, 29 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I see there's already been a start on it with a long list of refs. Glad I'm no longer faced with the problem myself. Ecuador sounds much more interesting. 26 women in the last couple of weeks - amazing! You should be taking part in our translation contest.--Ipigott (talk) 11:44, 29 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Hi Ian, I am where I can but the work is driven by photos of "MP"s ... and they don't usually have an article in any language. I have added a couply where there was a Spanish version. .... and yes its much more interesting. They do take politicians to court on trumped up/political/corruption charges but they do seem to take some notice and not just mumble "truly and deeply sorry for what ever I appear to have done, but it wasn't me if you squint at it from this angle through these shaded specs ... so lets move on".

Ecuadorian politicians[edit]

Just a reminder that people are not filed directly in Category:Politicians if they're already filed in one or more subcategories, such as Category:Members of the National Assembly of Ecuador. The world has had hundreds of thousands, possibly even well into the millions, of politicians throughout history — so it's not useful for the parent category Category:Politicians to be a one-stop list of everybody on earth who was ever in politics, and instead all politicians are subcategorized by nationality and/or role while Category:Politicians is supposed to only parent the subcategories, while not directly containing any individual people itself.

pls read Millie Hudson[edit]

Hi @Victuallers, I just made some updates to British diver and long-distance swimmer Millie Hudson, who is featured in an upcoming DYK, and would just appreciate your giving it a read through...mainly because you are the author of Mercedes Gleitze, and they are interconnected.

DYK for Sofía Sanchez[edit]

Updated DYK query.svgOn 14 June 2022, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Sofía Sanchez, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that Sofía Sanchez (pictured) loved soccer and she played for a leading Spanish side, but her mother said "study" and she now sits in Ecuador's National Assembly? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Sofía Sanchez. You are welcome to check how many pageviews the nominated article or articles got while on the front page (here's how, Sofía Sanchez), and if they received a combined total of at least 416.7 views per hour (i.e., 5,000 views in 12 hours or 10,000 in 24), the hook may be added to the statistics page. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.

Wrong link![edit]

How come the wrong Sofia Sanchez was linked in today's DYK? Is there any chance of re-running with the correct Sofía Sánchez (politician)? Somehow a correction needs to be made, perhaps with an apology, as the image did not correspond to the person linked. (cc theleekycauldron)--Ipigott (talk) 11:46, 15 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

I now see Tbhotch moved the page. Not sure how to deal with this. Maybe the DYK ran correctly but the DYK archive certainly needs attention.--Ipigott (talk) 12:41, 15 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Thanks for spotting this Ipigott. We did get some picky points raised when it was on the main page so it must have been accessible to some. One of the points was about her name lacking an accent which is may be the reason it was moved. The stats should tell us how many saw it and with what name (I think).

Incomplete DYK nomination[edit]

Symbol question.svg Hello! Your submission of Template:Did you know nominations/Pooja Sharma (entrepreneur) at the Did You Know nominations page is not complete; if you would like to continue, please link the nomination to the nominations page as described in step 3 of the nomination procedure. If you do not want to continue with the nomination, tag the nomination page with {{db-g7}}, or ask a DYK admin. Thank you. DYKHousekeepingBot (talk) 19:27, 14 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Sofía Sánchez DYK[edit]

@Victuallers and theleekycauldron: I wanted to follow up on yesterday's Errors in "Did you know ..." discussion, which I didn't get a chance to reply to before it got deleted. My request was not about fixing the hyperlink in the source article. In fact, had you checked the article in question, you would have noticed that I had already fixed that hyperlink in the source article a few minutes before asking my question (Special:Diff/1093107824). Had I needed help to edit the Sofía Sánchez article itself, I would have of course posted on the relevant talk page. My request was to change the hyperlink in the hook itself, which I understand only administrators can do. Is there a reason why you both suggested that I could have done that myself? Or did you just not notice that the bad hyperlink was in the hook? --JECE (talk) 19:34, 15 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@JECE: My read of your comment, if memory serves, was that you wrote "in the Sofía Sánchez article"- so I just assumed you meant the article. theleekycauldron (talkcontribs) (she/they) 19:36, 15 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Me too - although I was also just about to go to sleep. Errors are important but I dont feel that we get too excited about errors in articles at DYK. They are new and we should not be surprised to find that we have errors even though they have been overchecked. Hope its all fixed now. I think the hook was changed a few hours later as it mixed up all the stats. (see above). Victuallers (talk) 22:20, 15 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

I see what you mean[edit]

The rephrasing part of DYK is out of hand. I didn't realize how bad it was until I saw this at ERRORS. I have no idea why a rewording and not an error was brought up there, especially when Gerda's hook was completely fine. SL93 (talk) 09:04, 16 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@SL93: I thought I was just crying outside the door of a hard line poetry society. These are not Haikus, but hooks that thousands of people find interesting everyday for a millisecond before they click to find out more. They never notice that the hook has been re-authored several times, but the author of the hook just feels that someone keeps kidnapping their children on the pretext of tidying their hair. I'm sure I could have phrased this idea better (but it would be very bad manners for anyone to change this text - unless its a genuine error!). Victuallers (talk) 09:18, 16 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
100% agree with the sentiments expressed here, it can frustrating as someone who has written something, collaborated on changes and then gone through a review process to then find unilateral changes have been made which in some cases are not an improvement. my response to this is to step away from DYK for a while then return, but i don't think that it solves anything. in any case keep up the good work both of you and cheers SL93 for the sidenote at Template:Did you know nominations/De Vloek!
