Sacramento Roller Derby[edit]

The two Sacramento-based WFTDA leagues merged, and as they've announced their new name, I went and merged the two articles as Sacramento Roller Derby (I renamed Sac City to this, and merged Sacred City into it). I kept 2006 as the founding year and a league member changed it to 2018, but I decided to revert it with explanation and take it to talk, explaining my reasoning there, if you're interested in commenting. Let me know what you think. Echoedmyron (talk) 21:39, 3 January 2018 (UTC)

deleted derby logos[edit]

Hi! I see that a number of derby articles had their logos removed for copyvios in the past 24 hours, and from looking at edit histories it seems likely that those logos were originally uploaded by you. It doesn't look as though the bot - or editor - who deleted them gave you a notice of any sort. Before I tackled re-uploading them I wondered if you had any inkling as to why someone deleted them? (Figuring that you know what you're doing when you're uploading logos maybe you'd have an idea what happened?) Articles affected seem to be Nidaros Roller Derby, Magnolia Roller Vixens, Gray City Rebels, McLean County MissFits and E-Ville Roller Derby. Echoedmyron (talk) 14:56, 20 February 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads-up! Looks like they'd all been moved to Commons at some point - unfortunately, I can't find a way of seeing who did that, but as Commons is for free files only, that shouldn't have happened. If you've got copies, there should be no issues with re-uploading locally here. Warofdreams talk 20:59, 20 February 2018 (UTC)
I went through and re-uploaded new logos for most of them - I realize the former E-Ville logo was an older version no longer in use. The only one I didn't re-add was for Magnolia, as the league merged into another organization and no longer has an operational website. I'll try to keep an eye for any getting uploaded to the commons inappropriately! Echoedmyron (talk) 23:28, 21 February 2018 (UTC)

Sonoma County Roller Derby[edit]

An IP editor - who has only ever made 3 edits - is proposing deleting Sonoma County Roller Derby. I note that their 3 edits have only been on this article, and 2 of them have been to propose deleting it. Wondered if you could have a look. National news sources may been thin, but then that is going to be the case for many league articles. Echoedmyron (talk) 14:26, 2 March 2018 (UTC)

Thanks. I've removed the proposed deletion, the editor can take it to AfD if they want, but national coverage isn't required for notability (it could be debated whether the newspapers cited have a sufficiently wide audience, but I'm no expert on the circulation of regional and local newspapers in the US!) Warofdreams talk 23:23, 2 March 2018 (UTC)
Heads up - an editor has started a convo at WT:SPORTS asking for notability guidelines on derby articles, and in doing so mentioned Sonoma again, along with a couple of other league articles. Sometimes this leads to extra attention on derby articles, so I wanted to give you a heads up. I also note that I think you're better versed on WP:GNG than I, so you may have some valuable input there. Thread here: [1] Echoedmyron (talk) 14:34, 7 March 2018 (UTC)

DYK for Votes for Women (newspaper)[edit]

Updated DYK query.svgOn 8 March 2018, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Votes for Women (newspaper), which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that British suffragettes (pictured) had to stand in the gutter to sell their newspaper Votes for Women, or risk being arrested for obstructing the pavement? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Votes for Women (newspaper). You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Votes for Women (newspaper)), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000.

Ha, thanks for correcting the nickname - I copied that infobox from the Bonnie Thunders article as a base, and obviously neglected to update all the fields. Nice catch. Echoedmyron (talk) 13:41, 2 May 2018 (UTC)

File:Operative Plasterers and Allied Trades Society of Ireland logo.jpg[edit]

Hi, I'm RonBot, a script that checks new non-free file uploads. I have found that the subject image that you recently uploaded was more than 5% in excess of the Non-free content guideline size of 100,000 pixels. I have tagged the image for a standard reduction, which (for jpg/gif/png/svg files) normally happens within a day. Please check the reduced image, and make sure that the image is not excessively corrupted. Other files will be added to Category:Wikipedia non-free file size reduction requests for manual processing. There is a full seven-day period before the original oversized image will be hidden; during that time you might want to consider editing the original image yourself (perhaps an initial crop to allow a smaller reduction or none at all). A formula for calculation the desired size can be found at WP:Image resolution, along with instructions on how to tag the image in the rare cases that it requires an oversized image (typically about 0.2% of non-free uploads are tagged as necessarily oversized). Please contact the bot owner if you have any questions, or you can ask them at Wikipedia talk:Non-free content. RonBot (talk) 17:18, 1 August 2018 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Association of Engineering and Shipbuilding Draughtsmen logo.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Association of Engineering and Shipbuilding Draughtsmen logo.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in section F5 of the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. --B-bot (talk) 17:05, 13 August 2018 (UTC)

2011 Roller Derby World Cup logo tag[edit]

Hi! I had uploaded the logo for the 2011 Roller Derby World Cup way back when; it got tagged as failing non-free use rationale, and I wondered if you could have a look. When I uploaded it 7 (!) years ago, I filled out the available parameters at the time, and can't tell if it's just that templates have changed or if it is really missing something. Going to WP:FUR as the bot notice instructs seems to want me to add a new template that would replicate much of what is already in there, which is part of what is confusing me. I mean, I'm also jetlagged from having flown home from Spain yesterday, so maybe it's just me... Echoedmyron (talk) 15:29, 4 September 2018 (UTC)

I think I've sorted it, the rationale was referring to the Roller Derby World Cup article, but since I created the 2011 Roller Derby World Cup article some years ago, it's actually used in that article instead. Nice work in Spain, btw, hope you enjoyed it! Warofdreams talk 08:28, 5 September 2018 (UTC)
Ah, thanks - I missed how it was linked. And thank you for that too - it was exhausting but thrilling! Echoedmyron (talk) 13:13, 5 September 2018 (UTC)

Gabu, Guinea-Bissau[edit]

Hi Warofdreams. First of all, congartulations on your staying power! 15 years! Impressive. Anyway, going back 13 years, it is most likely that you might no longer remember what you did back then. I see that you created Gabu. If you do remember, do you have any idea how you arrived at the spelling of Gabu with the accent on the u? Thanks, reagrds, Rui ''Gabriel'' Correia (talk) 00:25, 17 September 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for your message. As I remember, I used the accent in the article title purely because it was the spelling used in the Rough Guide to West Africa, not the most authoritative source! Warofdreams talk 09:08, 17 September 2018 (UTC)
Thanks for the feedback. And good memory to boot! I would like to change it to Gabu — in Portuguese and threfore Portuguese-speaking countries — when a word or name ends in a u it is automatically stressed, so it does not require the diacritic acute accent. Thanks, Rui ''Gabriel'' Correia (talk) 12:08, 17 September 2018 (UTC)
