Martin Leach[edit]

Hello,

This is my first time doing this so apologies if I break the protocol. I have submitted for your consideration an expansion of Martin Leach stub article. It would be great to know what you think of it, I have kept the existing info but complemented it with new content when available, including current info.

All the best, Ivan Mato (talk) 10:30, 1 September 2015 (UTC)

After you finish clearing out the Persondata short description backlog...[edit]

You had a lot of dedication to stub sorting, then persondata; that backlog's now almost complete, so what will you work on next? -Fimatic (talk | contribs) 23:12, 19 November 2014 (UTC)

  • Well keeping it empty will be a task but I have a few other tasks i would like to do. There are still a large number of Paralympic and Olympic sportspeople without an article and I would like to add those. I am currently trying to learn Dutch so translating articles from Dutch into English would assist that and there are certainly a number of articles that could do with translating. There are also many other backlogs to clear that could make a good task. I reckon I have till Christmas before we get this empty so I still have about 5 weeks to decide. Waacstats (talk) 23:21, 19 November 2014 (UTC)
Interesting! It seems that the backlog will be cleared out by the end of 2014; it's been going at a fast rate. -Fimatic (talk | contribs) 23:24, 19 November 2014 (UTC)
I guess I'll go and help clear out some right now -Fimatic (talk | contribs) 23:25, 19 November 2014 (UTC)

Dating Timeline Correction of Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter[edit]

Just want to relay that Cumberbatch and Hunter have been seeing each other since late 2013 contrary to "early 2014" which the Daily Mail and other rags are reporting and is currently indicated in his personal life section.

NOTE: I know the Daily Mail is not reliable source that's the very reason why the info should be amended because that "until early 2014" was actually information from them. The scans are from People magazine where it says they got together late last year and have been together for a year now before getting engaged. He was even featured on the cover in this week's issue: http://img2.timeinc.net/people/i/2014/news/141208/cosby-cover-768.jpg. One can always reference a print article here and in this case scans of the interview are available to prove it. That's already two non-tabloid publications referencing the "late 2013" timeline.

Thank you for improving both Hunter's and Cumberbatch's profiles! 31.223.159.213 (talk) 22:35, 26 November 2014 (UTC)

Here's a clearer iPad version. If the timeline is confusing it's safe to just indicate that they got engaged after a year of dating like indicated: http://38.media.tumblr.com/3baaf9e7fc0b0fab74807254f444a343/tumblr_nfmwiszdhL1ql37t2o5_1280.jpg 86.62.237.202 (talk) 08:42, 27 November 2014 (UTC)

Persondata typos[edit]

You may want to review the spelling a bit more carefully when filling in the Persondata fields e.g. [3] and [4]. And this one was particularly indecipherable. Dl2000 (talk) 03:16, 8 December 2014 (UTC)

About your (non)participation in the January 2012 SOPA vote[edit]

Hi. I am Piotr Konieczny (User:Piotrus), you may know me as an active content creator (see my userpage), but I am also a professional researcher of Wikipedia. Recently I published a paper (downloadable here) on reasons editors participated in Wikipedia's biggest vote to date (January 2012 WP:SOPA). I am now developing a supplementary paper, which analyzes why many editors did not take part in that vote. Which is where you come in :) You are a highly active Wikipedian (2nd most active, in fact!), and you were active back during the January 2012 discussion/voting for the SOPA, yet you did not chose to participate in said vote. I'd appreciate it if you could tell me why was that so? For your convenience, I prepared a short survey at meta, which should not take more than a minute of your time. I would dearly appreciate you taking this minute; not only as a Wikipedia researcher but as a fellow content creator and concerned member of the community (I believe your answers may help us eventually improve our policies and thus, the project's governance). PS. If you chose to reply here (on your userpage), please WP:ECHO me. Thank you! --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 14:22, 3 February 2015 (UTC)

Presentation proposal for Wikimania 2015[edit]

Wikimania 2015 Mexico City identity.jpg How to pick up more women...
Hi Waacstats! Victuallers and I have developed a proposal for a talk to be presented at Wikimania 2015. It's titled, How to pick up more women... -- as in more women editors and more women's biographies. Examples include the Edit-a-thon blitz during WikiWomen's History Month and the "new articles" work underway by WikiProject Women Writers. The Wikimania talk proposal review process has begun and there's no guarantee that our proposal will be accepted. That's where you come in. Please review it and, if you wish, give us feedback on the submission's talkpage or my talkpage (vs. your talkpage). Ultimately, we hope you add your name to the signup at the bottom of the proposal which signifies you'd be interested in the talk if you were attending it (it does not commit you to attending Wikimania).

Adding Persondata Short Descriptions using AWB[edit]

Hello, Waacstats. I was intrigued by this edit which you describe as "add persondata short description using AWB". I've been getting AWB to do all kinds of changes to pages, but would be interested to know how you get it to create and insert the short description text. To be more specific, I could make AWB insert a description, but I'm really puzzled as to how you got AWB to construct the string "American baseball executive" from the contents of that page. I'd love to add this functionality to my AWB module code. Looking forward to your reply. — Hebrides (talk) 22:15, 4 April 2015 (UTC)

Unfortunatly I am no great coder and just use AWB to open pages one after the other and insert American into the short description page, I then modify this as needed. Waacstats (talk) 07:25, 5 April 2015 (UTC)
Ah, I see. Not artificial intelligence at all. The real thing :) Maybe I'd better follow your example. Anyhow, thanks for all your contributions to Wikipedia. — Hebrides (talk) 18:48, 5 April 2015 (UTC)

Hi, in this edit you used AWB to insert both "American" and "British" at the same time, for a British person. It has since been corrected, but you may wish to check your other AWB-assisted edits. – Fayenatic London 09:23, 10 April 2015 (UTC)

Even if you don't think this, it seems like you are subscribing to the view that "Indian squaws" (not a term that is used these days) are worthless to talk to. Cfalz (talk) 19:06, 20 May 2015 (UTC)
