Lilian Josephine Pocock[edit]

Though about suggestion that a "note" be inserted and that article go into "good for now" box. Have changed my mind. You will see that I now only give detail of what can be substatiated online. Hope you agree this better and that you will now move to "done" list.

We have so much to tackle in the coming weeks and a "good for now" listing means it is still there to action albeit at some future time.

Much prefer to get it done now so that we can forget about it.

Hope you agree and that I will see Lilian Josephine Pocock in the "done" list.

Many thanks

Weglinde (talk) 20:53, 18 August 2012 (UTC)

I had already moved it into the "done" group.
I'll check the changes you made.--CaroleHenson (talk) 21:00, 18 August 2012 (UTC)
I had to revert the changes. We still have the problem of not having a reliable source for the material. From your comment that this was likely an example where you got the info by talking to someone at the church - and me not being able to find anything online after a good amt of time (1-1 1/2 hours I think), it doesn't seem like we're going to find a source.
I know that's unfortunate, because you know that it's so. That's why in one of my comments I wondered if you wanted to touch base with the church to see if they know of any published articles that might not be available online. This could be local newspapers, church published info, etc.--CaroleHenson (talk) 21:09, 18 August 2012 (UTC)

Okay. Let us leave this. Thought my revised text was fine as what I had written was backed up by UKIWM and the Scottish War Memorial Forum entry and that these would be regarded as "reliable sources". Has left my scratching my head and wondering what constitutes a "reliable source" but as there is so much to do seems best to move on. I am relieved that Pocock has made the "done" box! Today I shall work on Caroline Townshend and Alan Durst plus any final work on William Robert Colton, Frederick Victor Blundstone and the Preston Cenotaph once you have had the chance to check my work.

Many thanks. We are getting there!

Weglinde (talk) 07:57, 19 August 2012 (UTC)

For what it's worth, UKIWM looks to be a reliable source. Blogs and forums are not good sources.
One way to think about it is pretty common sense: Before something is published is it fact-checked? Newspapers, journals are pretty good about this. If someone can type something up by themselves - not have anyone ensure that it's factually correct or documented is not going to be a citable source. Does that help?
I'm guessing it's not helpful when I type the guidelines to refer to in edit notes or here in discussion (i.e., when there's a link. Is there some other way I can help make this a bit easier to understand?--CaroleHenson (talk) 08:12, 19 August 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for comments. You do not need to change what you are doing in any way. The "Learning Curve" is mine and I think that I am beginning to get a good idea of what needs doing. Therefore when I start out on Townshend I know that I must restrict the text to what is available in any given citation and lose the rest which would have been given me by e-mail from the church or whatever. I started all the stained glass work in January of this year and it has been quite a slog but I would not want to have to go back to all the churches/people involved. Just a little embarrassing to be honest. I shall therefore make sure that the text omits anything that cannot be verified. I also now understand that I should avoid blogs and forums.

See you have improved "tracking document". This is super.

Just one final point concerns those articles that contain tables. I do like the way you have moved images to the tables and if you could do this for me "across the board" that would be super. I only ask as I suspect you can do this fairly quickly whereas it would take me an age. Also note that you suggest a table for the List of Works by Paul Woodroffe. Great idea and again if you could do this I would be pleased. If however I am asking too much then do not worry.

Weglinde (talk) 09:13, 19 August 2012 (UTC)

Yep, I like the tables, too. Let's take it one at a time. It does take awhile to set up.
In the meantime, I'm focusing on going over the citations real diligently so we start with a clean slate.
There's examples of what info is missing from citations in bold. Hopefully that will help out a bit.
I'll start putting a diamond next to the articles I've reviewed for sources to keep track of things.
I know it's been a bit of a struggle over the past couple of days - but I think we're on firmer ground in terms of knowing what we need to do. So, that's a good thing! Yep, I agree - we're making progress!--CaroleHenson (talk) 10:21, 19 August 2012 (UTC)

Citations....[edit]

Hi there,

I thought it might be helpful if I spelled out exactly what information is missing for the citations for the Caroline T. and Works of Nathaniel Hitch articles. Both have bolded labels in the citations to point out what information is needed.

I'm thinking it might be good to slow down quite a bit until we get the citations rolling along. I'll slow down my pace so that I can go at this more thoughtfully than I have so far.

You may find that the articles that are done now should be good examples to compare what's in the citation to what's on a web page - or book - etc.

Please let me know if I can help sort it out.

Hope you're having a good day!--CaroleHenson (talk) 11:24, 19 August 2012 (UTC)

Ohhhh, I see! You've not been so much working on citations as working on what information is verifiable (laughing at myself: just like you said you would!). Excellent! Very good!
I think the slowing down is probably good for the moment - and I'll be ready when you're ready to have me look at something. Could you just put a note on my talk page?--CaroleHenson (talk) 11:29, 19 August 2012 (UTC)

List of works of Caroline Townshend[edit]

Hi there!

How nice to just work on one article! The biography is growing - and the works section was already long - so I made the List of works by Caroline Townshend page.

The citations are really coming along!

Just focusing on the web citations for the moment:

  • Please don't put a period at the end of url. I think what's happening is you're wanting to put the end period for the label there, but it really goes after the title: "Burneside - St Oswald's Church."
  • You're doing so much better at putting the info in the citations, just a couple of tips:
    • The article name is generally at the top of the page - (in rare cases where there might not be a page title,) at the top of the section you want people to refer to. Usually you can just cut and paste that information, which is really cool.
    • The number of the publisher is generally one of several places:
      • The very top of the page, is often a logo
      • At the very bottom of the page is sometimes the publisher name - such as copyright of...
      • If I don't find it there, I click "home" or remove everything but the main web address and try that
      • As a last resort, I use the actual web address.
FYI only at the moment: We can talk about book formats and whether you'd like to use the citation templates another time. You're at least getting all the right info, and I can format it into the citation. I usually use the format that the citation formats format to - for consistency.

Sorry that this is a bit long to tell you how well you're doing!! Just thought these tips might help go from great to stupendous!!

Thanks for hanging in there! It's really coming along! I haven't checked citations against the cited text yet. I thought I'd wait til the citations were done -- and I'm having fun writing on Townshend's biography right now. Take care! Glad you're all up for a slower pace, too! One article at a time is GREAT!--CaroleHenson (talk) 00:25, 20 August 2012 (UTC)

All very helpful and encouraging. Will revert in due course. Weglinde (talk) 07:51, 20 August 2012 (UTC)

It can be hard to tell how one comes across on messaging - I hope I'm encouraging and not a nag!--CaroleHenson (talk) 17:52, 20 August 2012 (UTC)

Certainly not a nag! I have no problems at all and now that the pace has slowed I must confess that I am enjoying it all!

Weglinde (talk) 18:34, 20 August 2012 (UTC)

Me, too!--CaroleHenson (talk) 19:16, 20 August 2012 (UTC)

List of works by Caroline Townshend[edit]

I started the article List of works by Caroline Townshend - but I'm wondering if it should me moved (renamed) to List of works by Townshend and Howson, the name of Townshend and Howson's company?

What do you think?--CaroleHenson (talk) 04:00, 20 August 2012 (UTC)

I will look at all of this on Townshend and revert.

Weglinde (talk) 07:37, 20 August 2012 (UTC)

Back from visit to relative. Returned to work on Townshend.

  • 1. Your piece on Caroline Townshend is I think admirable.
  • 2. I have gone over the list of works and realise that I do not know how to mark notes.
Reply:
To put in a note, each individual note uses this template, which words going between the two | marks: {{#tag:ref| |group=nb}}
If a notes section is not already established add just before References:
==Notes==
{{Reflist|group=nb}}
On St Ambrose in Widnes the article I quote is held in the church records so I think I should take it all out of the article but include it in a note. If you agree please show me how to do this. Otherwise I have looked at all instances where you have put "citations".
Reply:
Makes sense to me.
On ISBN and page numbers for "The Buildings of England" series some are missing but I now discover that my library is closed for redecoration for the whole of August. Sometime in September I promise that I shall go to the library and fill in any missing information of the books. This goes for any references I may make elsewhere to this series of books.
Reply:
Many of these books are on google books. You can go to this link http://books.google.co.uk/ and enter the name of the book, then search for text within the book.
  • 3. Feel we should leave title as is and not go for "List of works by Townshend and Howson" as some works are just by Townshend.
Reply:
I wonder if that's' a bit misleading for all the works that were done in partnership.
What do you think about 1) moving over to Caroline Townshend's article all the ones done by her before 1920 when their partnership was established, 2) keeping the ones for the partnership in a renamed article List of works by Townshend and Howson, since that was the official name of their partnership from 1920 to 1944?
  • I will however at some point add to the Joan Howson article any works by Howson alone.
Reply:
Makes sense!
  • If you are happy to do so please move article on Townshend and the "Listing" to the done section
Reply:
The Caroline Townshend and Joan Howson articles are already moved to done.
Yep, let me take a look at the List of Caroline Townshend article.

Weglinde (talk) 16:12, 20 August 2012 (UTC)

I hope you don't mind: I put the responses under each item.--CaroleHenson (talk) 18:12, 20 August 2012 (UTC)

Agree on split centred around 1924. Weglinde (talk) 18:35, 20 August 2012 (UTC)

Ok. Regarding the date of the partnership, I have a cited date of 1920. Is the source wrong and I need to find another source? See Caroline Townshend#Career.--CaroleHenson (talk) 19:18, 20 August 2012 (UTC)
Ok, the movement of Caroline Townshend only works to her article, renaming the article, and updating links to the new article name are done (including the spot at the stained glass template). I think there's one or two in the T&H article that may be Townshend only - but I couldn't quickly verify that by googling.
By the way, the All Saint's citation in the List of works article covered only part of the first sentence, so a new citation is needed for that section. IF there are any other large blocks that you think might not be covered in entirety by the citation and want to catch those, that would be extraordinarily great!
I've got to run for awhile, but I'll be back online later on today.-CaroleHenson (talk) 20:28, 20 August 2012 (UTC)

Alan Durst and William Colton[edit]

I have revisited these.

Alan Durst- Have put in remaining citations and removed medal card reference. List of works Alan Durst. Have restored/repaired "Dead Link"

This article was one of my favourites to research and I spent several hours at The Tate Archive trawling through his personal papers. Personally I now think the article and listing looks good and can be passed as "done". Hope you agree. I would certainly baulk at trying to put in any further references as much dust has settled since I wrote this piece and I did not retain any records.

William Robert Colton. Have put in missing citations. Hope you will now pass to the "done" section.

As you say it is good to do one thing at a time. I was not straying from this new policy in looking at Durst and Colton together but they were two matters I thought we could easily get out of the way.

I shall now go back to Townshend and not stray to fresh pastures until that is finished. Off to see my sister for the day so will revert Townshend in due course.

Many thanks.

Weglinde (talk) 07:47, 20 August 2012 (UTC)

Yep, it sounds good to get these out of the way, too! How about if I work on the List of Caroline Townshend while that's fresher in my mind and then get to Alan Durst and William Robert Colton. The goal being to just ensure that the citations cover the cited text and do some copyediting. If you want to follow behind me on the Caroline Townshend and Joan Howson article for copyediting feel free. I feel pretty confident that the citations all match the cited text.
I'm not going to be able to get as much done today as normal, but I'll do what I can.--CaroleHenson (talk) 18:17, 20 August 2012 (UTC)


Agree with what you say. Weglinde (talk) 18:37, 20 August 2012 (UTC)

Philip_Lindsey_Clark[edit]

Just to make sure that no wires are crossed I am now going to start on the Philip Lindsey Clark article. Weglinde (talk) 16:19, 20 August 2012 (UTC)

Ok.

Durst and Colton[edit]

Would you please click on each of the links in the References section for these article to ensure that they go to the right page?

They may need to be edited to ensure that there's no period at the end of the http:// url - or other formatting that's not causing them to work.

That would be wonderful!--CaroleHenson (talk) 18:30, 20 August 2012 (UTC)

Will do this. No problem.

Weglinde (talk) 18:39, 20 August 2012 (UTC)

Image placement so tricky with long images - Wikiproject talk page[edit]

I added a question to the talk page of Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Visual_arts#List_of_works_by_Caroline_Townshend about the placement of images for the long stained glass images. Feel free to join the conversation!--CaroleHenson (talk) 19:24, 20 August 2012 (UTC)

Confused: Hartland Abbey[edit]

I'm really confused about something: Are Hartland Abbey and St Nectan’s Church, Stoke, Hartland, Devon the same place? Or St Nectan's Church in Hartland Abbey.

Right now they're listed as two places in the List of works by Caroline Townshend, but from this link http://www.hartlandforum.co.uk/archivesproject/T51.htm it sounds like they're related someone, but I'm not quite getting the distinction.--CaroleHenson (talk) 19:42, 20 August 2012 (UTC)

If you read this you will see that they are different places but not that far from each other. Hope this helps.

http://www.hartlandabbey.com/locality.htm

Weglinde (talk) 20:06, 20 August 2012 (UTC)

Ok, the source for Hartland Abbey is an article at http://www.hartlandforum.co.uk/archivesproject/T51.htm about St Nectan's Church, and has content about Hartland Abbey - after one paragraph in that article about the dark windows of the Abbey, I'm not sure if the next section is about Hartland Abbey or St Nectan's Church. Is it me?--CaroleHenson (talk) 20:17, 20 August 2012 (UTC)

Coming to the end of the day so I will re-read all of this tomorrow and come back to you. The church and the abbey are different places so I will see whether I have chosen the right citations. If you are confused then something needs correction.

On a positive front I have just checked through William Robert Colton citations to make sure that the correct link is thrown up. Two did not work and I have corrected them. As you thought might be the case I had created too much of a gap between the end of the "url" and the "". Also I will now put two inverted commas instead of three. Think I am slowly getting there! Anyway Colton is in 100% order and I must say looks good so guess you will move to "done". Will follow the same exercise with Alan Durst tomorrow and continue with Philip Linsey Clark. When I have finished that article (Clark) you will see a complete transformation. One thing that I am doing is completely absorbing all that was in the "Your Archives" article but with citations.

Okay that all for now and will look again at the suitability of the St Nectans and Hartland Abbey citations tomorrow.

Weglinde (talk) 20:52, 20 August 2012 (UTC)


Kept thinking about Hartland Abbey and St Nectan and thought I would get the answer tonight as I guess You will want to finish this.

The exhibition catalogue that I refer to quite often had on display the designs for St Nectan. I contacted the archivist there and he put me on to the website which I was really delighted with as it not only had images of the windows but copies of correspondence from the artists. When I prepared my article the archivist, to be helpful, told me about the work by Townshend/Howson at the Abbey. I then put the St Nectan Forum as a citation for St Nectan and the Abbey. Solution should be to just put the St Nectan Forum link alongside the St Nectan text and remove completely the reference to Hartland Abbey as I cannot give a substantiating citation. Alternatively you could put a note against Hartland Abbey giving information about the windows there but stating that this information came from the archivist. It is becoming clear that I need to be even stricter in the way that I trim my text to exactly fit the citation. The Hartland Abbey instance is an oversight on my part and not a sign that I not taking the re-editing seriously.

Hope this makes sense as I am rather tired. Many thanks Weglinde (talk) 22:09, 20 August 2012 (UTC)

Hi, (haven't been able to fall asleep, so I'm back for a smidge). I don't know why or how - but I totally missed this earlier. I don't think Hartland Abbey is an oversight. The citation you provided clearly talks about the work there - I just got confused because it talks about the church, too, and the article isn't really clear in being distinct about which place they're talking about. Another option, very likely, is that I just wasn't getting it and going back with fresh eyes I might.
I think this will sort itself out nicely by looking at other sources. How fun that you had correspondece with the artists! That's very exciting. I'm getting a sense of who they are as people - so I'm a bit in awe!--CaroleHenson (talk) 10:06, 21 August 2012 (UTC)

Article checking[edit]

As an FYI, these are the things that I check for when reviewing an article:

1. Ensure that the citation covers all the text it's attributed to.
2. Ensure that the text in the article is not a word-for-word copy of what's in the source - or a WP:Close paraphrasing of the text.
3. Ensure that the source is a reliable source, per WP guidelines: WP:Reliable sources
4. Ensure that the text in the article well uses the information from the cited source - as it's relevant to the article topic - or it can be seen as "cherry picking" to get just the info or slant that is desired
5. Ensure the text is relevant to the article topic.
6. Ensure as complete information as possible for the citation.
7. Edit citation format, if needed.
8. Ensure that the link on the citation works
9. Add links to key items in the article: people, places, etc.

The more that these things are done, the shorter the time to review the article. It's also something I try and thing about when I'm working on articles, too - Did I catch all of these (for instance, I really have to watch close paraphrasing: that the text in the article doesn't sound like the author's voice, follow the same order the info is presented, etc.).--CaroleHenson (talk) 00:46, 21 August 2012 (UTC)

I put these in our list - and have them checked off as done for the articles we've been talking about.--CaroleHenson (talk) 05:28, 21 August 2012 (UTC)

Okay. I understand but you did not answer my point about Hartland Abbey. Shall I remove or leave with a note worded as suggested? Weglinde (talk) 06:38, 21 August 2012 (UTC)

Sorry. Forget question. Have now looked at "tracking document" and know what I have to do.

Weglinde (talk) 06:54, 21 August 2012 (UTC)

Ok, talk to you later! I hope you're having a good day there!--CaroleHenson (talk) 09:04, 21 August 2012 (UTC)

Yes having a good day. Still working on Philip Lindsey Clark. Doing a complete re-vamp of existing article and bringing in all that I have learnt (I hope) in the last two weeks. Will be interesting to then see how it looks and what you think of it. Would be useful to use as a "test paper" to see how I am doing. "Making good progress" will I hope be my end of article report. Will not be tempted to look at anything else til it is done. Weglinde (talk) 12:22, 21 August 2012 (UTC)

Man, do I ever get that. I spent hours working on the review and final clean-up of articles yesterday and it's so tedious and not at all fun! I totally get that! There was just one bit in the Colton article that needed a citation, so I moved it to the talk page and moved the article to done. I'm sure that you'll do a good job, you'd absorbed a lot of wiki guidelines lately!
I'm going to work on Two Temple Place - that looks to be a very interesting article. There's some rewording for copy-paste of information, but it looks very interesting and I love the photos.
I think I've caught up for the moment with what you wanted me to do - there's not much more that I can do on my own on the List of works by Townshend and Howson, since most of that information came from books.
So, I'll leave you alone and get back to working on just one article, too! Yeah!--CaroleHenson (talk) 16:23, 21 August 2012 (UTC)
Oh, and you may have seen that I did a run of disambiguation work for the articles where the content is finished. That was a bit of clean-up too - but very helpful so we won't get disambig notices on our talk pages.--CaroleHenson (talk) 16:25, 21 August 2012 (UTC)

Philip Lindsey Clark[edit]

Have worked for several hours on a revamped version of the original article. Cannot say that I feel any great sense of pride as formatting of the citations has taken me ages. I will return to it tomorrow to do some tweaking and it would be a good idea if you could find time to look over it so that you can at least see what I have done. Perhaps I shall feel more cheerful about it all tomorrow but it has been more of a struggle than I thought. Weglinde (talk) 16:44, 21 August 2012 (UTC)

Just for the record have written myself a little note-

On Lilian Josephine Pocock citation written

[1]

Comes out as

^ St John the Baptist. Buckinghamshire Stained Glass. Retrieved 18 August 2012.

That’s how it should be!

On Philip Lindsey Clark. Citation written-

Comes out as

^ Life’’Website dealing with the Spitalfields area of the City of London. SpitalfieldsLife@gmail.com. Retrieved 21 August 2012.

This is not as it should be.

Conclusion

1. Stop putting inverted commas- “Spitalfields Life” 2. Put full stop after widegate-st.

Will try tomorrow and hope that I have identified where I am going wrong.

Will write [3]

Weglinde (talk) 17:02, 21 August 2012 (UTC)

Keep up the great work! You've been doing marvelously well! Talk to you later!--CaroleHenson (talk) 17:29, 21 August 2012 (UTC)

Feel better for your encouraging words! Will hopefully polish Philip Lindsey Clark tomorrow. Will then hopefully finish of Townshend and Howson list. Think I shall leave Alan Durst until the weekend as I suspect I may have to cut a lot out and it is one of my favourite articles. Still the job must be done. Once Clark and Townshend and Howson are out of the way I will I think do Frederick Victor Blundstone. In any case will make a note on tracking document. Hope you at least enjoy reading 2 Temple Place if not editing it.

I was lucky to get access by a special invitation (on the basis of my Hitch work) as it is not normally open to the public. It is a super place with so many treasures. Will talk tomorrow but thanks again for encouragement. It must all be "bread and butter" to you and I do admire how you are able to tackle things. Weglinde (talk) 17:46, 21 August 2012 (UTC)

Sounds good and ambitious! Thanks for your vote of confidence!--CaroleHenson (talk) 18:07, 21 August 2012 (UTC)

Philip Lindsey Clark now done. Would be grateful you do disambiguation and look over what I have done. Weglinde (talk) 07:45, 22 August 2012 (UTC)

Ok, I will do that in a bit. Sounds like you've been working hard.CaroleHenson (talk) 12:56, 22 August 2012 (UTC)
Ok, I've gone over the article and completed the checklist for the article - and finished off a couple of the items. There's just a couple more things to do before marking it to done. Great job! This one went so much faster because there was a lot already done! Thanks for that!--CaroleHenson (talk) 16:14, 22 August 2012 (UTC)

Townshend and Howson[edit]

Forgot to mention that I revisited Townshend and Howson. All the text on the famous women at All Saints came from the exhibition catalogue as did the fact that Townshend designed it. I have put in the necessary note. On St Ambrose the text of the article held by the church was much bigger so I have enlarged accordingly.

I am now happy that this piece can be moved to the "done" section. I will do that. Will you do the disambiguation?

Weglinde (talk) 19:18, 21 August 2012 (UTC)

Cool, sounds good! I like the way you handled the quote! I already did a disambiguation last night because I thought it wasn't likely new links would be added. From the history, it doesn't look like they were. Great job, another one down!--CaroleHenson (talk) 20:20, 21 August 2012 (UTC)

Just when all appeared good the cursor on my laptop is not functioning. I am sending this on my iPad. Hope problem soon fixed as I am not that conversant with iPad other than for simple tasks. Tomorrow will try to get laptop fixed but until that is done there may be a pause in my working on articles. What a pain! Fingers crossed that it is not too serious a problem.

Weglinde (talk) 22:03, 21 August 2012 (UTC)

Not a problem, I'm loving the slow speed today working on the Two Temple Place article - and I'm having the charming company of my 4 yr old grandson for an overnight starting in a few hours. Take it at whatever pace works for you.--CaroleHenson (talk) 22:14, 21 August 2012 (UTC)

Suddenly the cursor works! So back to "open for business". Will talk again when I finish Philip Lindsey Clark. Incidentally on Two Temple Place the owners gave me a complimentary copy of "Incorporated Accountants' Hall- It's History and Architecture" issued in 1935. It is certainly out of print but was useful when I wrote article. The book was a "thank you" as they were delighted that my wiki effort gave them some publicity material. Enjoy your grandson's stay and we shall talk no doubt tomorrow. Weglinde (talk) 22:29, 21 August 2012 (UTC)

Wowee, great!!! It sure sounds like you've had some very interesting conversations and connections with people over the articles you've written ... and maybe some cool day trips. Nice!
Do you want me to hold off on the citations, then, if you have that as a reference?--CaroleHenson (talk) 23:35, 21 August 2012 (UTC)

That is a good idea. Tell me when you have finished and I will no doubt be able to fill in any gaps by creating a reference to the "Incorporated Accountsnts' Hall" book. I am now going to check my Philip Lindsey Clark article to make sure all the citations work, that they are correctly formatted and that no text is not fully substantiated by the link given. I will then tackle Blundstone and here I shall take the same approach as with Clark and intend remove all references to "Your Archives" and absorb into one composite wiki article. Shall let you know when I would like you to look at Clark. When I have done I will move Clark to the "done" section and invite you to do a disambiguation. I would prefer to get all the "tiddlers" out of the way before, with your help, I sort out the big stained glass articles. Then when these are done we can tackle "La Belle France" and I can go back to those articles where the "Your Archives" bits and pieces were cited. I would like to eliminate "Your Archives" from the wiki articles as I agree with you that they are not sufficiently reliable to use with wiki as they were all written by me. As already stated I shall extract all the National Archives' Ministry of Works files and use those in the wiki articles. Much of my "Your Archives" work was in reality my own observations as in most cases I visited all the statues/memorials myself, took my photographs and then wrote observations. Will talk again when Clark done and when I report on Blundstone. Hope you enjoyed grandson stopover.

Weglinde (talk) 07:12, 22 August 2012 (UTC)

Starting with the smaller articles first sounds like a good idea! If you want to work on the citations for Two Temple Place, feel free. The book you mentioned sounds great! I got all the general info I could about Astor and Two Temple Place - and then found a LOT on Victorian Web, by your reference sound like a much more reliable source. Feel free to jump in!
It also sounds good to remove the Your Article citations - if you see any for people's websites and can catch those, too, that would be great! You're rolling with great steam! Great work!--CaroleHenson (talk) 13:02, 22 August 2012 (UTC)

Ferdinand Victor Blundstone[edit]

Completed revamped article. Hope you pleased with it and approve. Please do disambiguation. I took what information there was in "Your Archives" into the article. All citations look okay and most importantly they work. I kept much of your earlier edit and added some of my own- also some extra photographs that I took when I visited the Holborn site. Will now look at Two Temple Place and then find another candidate for the "mincer". Will let you know who I choose. I was pleased as I managed to do a note in the Blundstone article. Note you few tweaks of the Philip Lindsey Clark article which were great and improved the whole thing.

Weglinde (talk) 16:06, 22 August 2012 (UTC)

Great job! I'll look at it now - and run both the disambig and the ABW editor, which I run for all my articles in my watchlist, too.--CaroleHenson (talk) 16:15, 22 August 2012 (UTC)
Done. I've added comments for Clark and Blundstone on the tracking sheet.--CaroleHenson (talk) 16:58, 22 August 2012 (UTC)

Joseph Hermon Cawthra[edit]

Just to let you know that once I have looked through Two Temple Place I intend to look at Cawthra.

Weglinde (talk) 16:38, 22 August 2012 (UTC)

Ok, great!--CaroleHenson (talk) 16:58, 22 August 2012 (UTC)
You're doing a great job and working like a "house on fire" (I don't know if that's just an American expression - it means working fast, getting a lot done). I think I'm going to work on Two Temple Place a little more til you get back. Just let me know when you'd like me to back out. I'm super excited about the book you got - and how you got it!--CaroleHenson (talk) 17:01, 22 August 2012 (UTC)

Have now made several references in the Two Temple Place article to the 1935 book. When I wrote the Two Temple Place article I was chuffed (English expression meaning very pleased) but now that you have made changes to it I am really delighted. Yes I was pleased to be presented with the book. Before the wiki article was published I had to submit a draft to the owners of the building and they were pleased with it and gave me the "green light". That was then but now I think they will be really pleased. Guess you will now do your disambiguation etc and move the piece to the "done" section and that you will do the same with Philip Lindsey Clark unless there is something else to do before it "goes upstairs". Now for Cawthra. When I wrote the article I went up north to Bury to see his war memorial. The reliefs Cawthra carved are super. This remains one of my favourite war memorials. As we go through the articles you will see that I have an interest in Great War War Memorials. They certainly gave the chance to sculptors of the day to produce some exquisite sculpture. Rather sad that such a dreadful episode of history should turn out to be a boon for sculptors but there it is. Many of the sculptors of Great War Memorials actually saw action themselves. You will have seen that with Philip Lindsey Clark. After looking at so many memorials I have two favourites. The first is Walter Marsden's work at St Anne's and Bolton and the second is Jagger's Royal Artillery Memorial at Hyde Park Corner. Marsden's work you will see when we edit his article. I never got around to a wiki article on Jagger but did an extensive one for "Your Archives". Both Marsden and Charles Sargeant Jagger served in the army and saw action. Will talk again when I have made some headway with Cawthra and look forward to your comments on Blundstone and Two Temple Place. That's all for now. Weglinde (talk) 17:18, 22 August 2012 (UTC)

Hi, yep, I went through both the Blundstone and Clark articles and made updates to the tracking sheet.
I've got a couple more citations to find for Two Temple Place, but you made my job immensely easier by the citations you got from your book. I can see why the folks at Two Temple Place were delighted with your article, it's a good one!
Yep, I've definitely seen your interest in war memorials and that a lot of the sculptors had been in action themselves. I'm betting doing so was somewhat of a healing activity, remembering those who had fought as well as those who had died. It might be good to make up a template for English war memorials - or maybe the Commonwealth. Doing so increases the viewing of related articles and gives much more play for the sculptors. And, the memorials often convey incredibly moving scenes - like the mother over her fallen son. Good work!--CaroleHenson (talk) 17:48, 22 August 2012 (UTC)

Need your guidance. On Philip Lindsey Clark I have found a better reference citation for the reliefs over the bakery but on The Church of the Sacred Heart and St Mary's in Warrington where I had given wikipedia articles as a reference, I can find no other link that would confirm that Clark did the work for these two churches. I will have another go tomorrow but what happens if I cannot find another mention of the works? Must I delete from the article? Guess that is what must happen. Would appreciate your help as I am sure this will happen again in the course of our work.

Weglinde (talk) 21:22, 22 August 2012 (UTC)

Let me try peeking around a bit. I guess I'm a bit confused, I don't know why an article would have to go - maybe one item from the article, but let me try, too. Maybe I'll have beginner's luck.--CaroleHenson (talk) 21:28, 22 August 2012 (UTC)
Oh, by the way, there's a cool trick - check out the Wikipedia articles for the churches and see if there are sources there that might cover the text that needs to be cited. Like I say, I'll check around.--CaroleHenson (talk) 21:30, 22 August 2012 (UTC)
I found citations for both - just have to type up the one that's a book - then I'll give it a final once over and move it to done.--CaroleHenson (talk) 21:43, 22 August 2012 (UTC)

That sounds good. By tne way I did not mean deleting the article but just any particular work from the article in circumstances where we cannot find citations.

Reply - ok, makes sense!

On Blundstone I am struggling to find a citation for the majolica tiles in St Mary's Paddington and strangely the work on the Newfoundland National War Memorial. I did go to the Newfoundland Archives website and reached a section where there was a photograph of Blundstone in front of one of the pieces for the St John's memorial but could not see how to create a link. I would be grateful if you could look at this for me.

Reply - ok, will do.

Also several years ago St Mary's Hospital underwent some major structural changes and I suspect that the Lewis Carroll ward is no longer there. I will do some more digging and perhaps ask the hospital if the majolica tiles are still in situ although that would not solve the problem of a reliable citation. Perhaps the St Mary's work will have to be removed. Anyway we are getting there and I hope we will soon be able to send Blundstone to the "done" box. Meanwhile I shall concentrate today on Cawthra. Anyway well done on Philip Lindsey Clark!Weglinde (talk) 06:33, 23 August 2012 (UTC)

Just a quick question when you are next in touch. Is there a "tag" I can put on an article so that people can see that it is under re-construction? This would be a useful device and avoid the need for one big revamp. The "tag" need only be there for say 48 hours.Weglinde (talk) 10:02, 23 August 2012 (UTC)

For edits over a couple of days and you don't mind if people also edit: the tag is {{under construction}}
For periods when you're in the midst of editing and don't want anyone to edit: the tag is {{in use}}. The automatic editors will actually skip over the article when the in use take is on so as not to disturb.--CaroleHenson (talk) 13:46, 23 August 2012 (UTC)

A couple of things[edit]

Hello, a couple of things:

  • Blundstone - I found the missing citations.
I goofed on St Mary's - Blundstone was mentioned in the article - in the next paragraph. Sorry. I found out when I searched just on: Blundstone - hospital - majolica.
For the Newfoundland memorial - I just searched on Blundstone Newfoundland memorial. When I'm having a hard time finding something, I reduce the number of search items to ones that are most likely to be on the page.
  • I'm going to move Blundstone to done, but I'm guessing that there might be a bit more biographical info on him. I'm going to spend just a little time on that.
  • You may have seen, I've starting working on Vernon Hill (sculptor). I'll get right back to that after I check around a bit more for Blundstone bio info.
  • I'm wondering, your talk page is getting very long: Are you interested in me making an archive of some of your earlier sections on this page? There would be a link to the file so that you could still get to the earlier info.--CaroleHenson (talk)

Your latest comments are as always most helpful. Yes, an archive of earlier sections would be useful. Note you having final look at Blundstone before moving to the "done" section. Note you looking at Vernon Hill so I will certainly keep away that until you give me the go ahead. I will continue on Cawthra and thank you for your advice on "tags". Many thanks. Weglinde (talk) 14:23, 23 August 2012 (UTC)

  • Blundstone is done, done. I wasn't able to find much more bio info - but I found he sculpted the Titanic Engineers' Memorial, Southampton. Cool!
  • I archived your conversations older than 1 week old - and they're in User talk:Weglinde/Archive 1, which is accessible on this page, in the #Archive section. I also added a newer set of welcome menus - which may be helpful.
  • Talk to you later, will be on Hill for a bit.--CaroleHenson (talk) 15:42, 23 August 2012 (UTC)

If you are around I would be grateful if you could have a quick look at Cawthra. I have really finished and am pleased with the new article but am having a mental block on the reference to the papers at the Henry Moore Institute Archive. Having made an initial reference and called it "ref name=hmi" I thought my formatting would keep repeating this link everytime I put "ref name=hmi/". For some reason it is not working. I am sure just a wee tweak is needed and if you could do this tweak I would be very happy indeed. As stated Cawthra will then be ready for you to disambiguate/AWB etc.etc and hopefully pass to the "done" box. I am now moving to Walter Marsden. Many thanks. Well done on Blundstone and reducing my "talk" page. Weglinde (talk) 15:51, 23 August 2012 (UTC)

Will do!--CaroleHenson (talk) 16:02, 23 August 2012 (UTC)
FYI, I extended an invitation to User talk:Swansnic#Christopher Whall who made some great copy edits to Christopher Whall.--CaroleHenson (talk) 16:09, 23 August 2012 (UTC)

Walter Marsden[edit]

Made really good progress on Marsden and it is finished. All I now need to do is check that the citations work. However although I think I have done all the right things the list of references does not come up. Hope you can assist so that I can check the citations work. Cannot see what I am doing differently. Sorry to keep asking you dig me from hole.SOS Weglinde (talk) 18:24, 23 August 2012 (UTC)

Sure. I just finished Joseph Hermon Cawthra - what incredibly powerful images. What do you think of the war memorial images being added to the table?--CaroleHenson (talk) 18:42, 23 August 2012 (UTC)
You just had accidentally taken out the "<" in </gallery>, fixing that made the {{Reflist}} work--CaroleHenson (talk) 18:47, 23 August 2012 (UTC)

Simple when you know how! Guess you will now check over, do disambiguation and AWB and then move to "done" box. Another one bites the dust.

Weglinde (talk) 19:36, 23 August 2012 (UTC) Sorry. Did not answer you on images and whether they should go in table. I am tempted as when you did it on an article I liked it. However as you say the images are powerful and somehow I feel that the impact will be diluted if we split them out into a table. On balance therefore I prefer the gallery format. I do like the way the size of the images has been increased by the way you format the galleries. Previously they were like little postage stamps. Weglinde (talk) 19:40, 23 August 2012 (UTC)

Joseph Hermon Cawthra images[edit]

I was so excited when I found all these extra images of Cawthra's works - and added to the article. I also added the Joseph Hermon Cawthra (sculptor) category for the images. When I went back to double-check they were all there I saw the comment about images of Cawthra's works having copyright issues (since he's not been dead 70 years) unless certain circumstances are met.

Do you know if the photographs of Cawthra's works meet the conditions and either are in public domain or have his family's approval to use the images?--CaroleHenson (talk) 19:19, 23 August 2012 (UTC)

I cleared this with wikipedia and wikicommons about two years ago. In English copyright law the 70 years period does not apply if the work is in a public place- Art Gallery. Museum. Church. Public Square. i.e. The public domain. If you want to you can go back over my talk page entries to confirm this. I have been very careful with images. I either take my own photographs or if they are on Flickr then I get the owner of the photograph to change the licensing so that I can use it. Only recently did I learn that the French have a different law and it does not matter whether the work is in a public place or not; the 70 years applies. Might be better though if we just stick to the images that I have used already as I do not really want to go down this road again. Copyright is a strange and frightening world and having clarified it all, with I must say some trepidation, as at one time I feared that my images would have to be removed then I do not want in any way to tempt providence. See you sorted Cawthra and he has been moved to the "done" box and I am sure that you will do what needs doing to free up Marsden.

Weglinde (talk) 19:33, 23 August 2012 (UTC)

Ok, I removed the Template:No uploads template that someone had posted and cited this discussion in the edit summary.--CaroleHenson (talk) 19:43, 23 August 2012 (UTC)

Marsden and Gilbert[edit]

Just for the record I shall start on Walter Gilbert tomorrow.Weglinde (talk) 19:41, 23 August 2012 (UTC)

See you have already sorted Marsden. What a star.Weglinde (talk) 19:43, 23 August 2012 (UTC)

Yep, I've started on Marsden - and there's a bit of work to do. I'll document it in the tracking sheet.--CaroleHenson (talk) 19:45, 23 August 2012 (UTC)

That is super. Forgot to say that I had checked that all the citations worked. Will no doubt be in touch tomorrow.

Weglinde (talk) 20:00, 23 August 2012 (UTC)

The Marsden article hasn't displayed the care you've given to other articles lately. I think I caught most of the spacing (words butted up at the end of punctuation or too much spacing), punctuation fixes, and typos - but I bet there's some still in there. Like I said, comments are in the tracking page.
I'm going to stop on this article for the moment and come back to it when some of the things have been fixed.
I'm guessing I'm going to have to do a line-by-line review again for citations, ensure no copy-paste, etc. Is that right?--CaroleHenson (talk) 20:18, 23 August 2012 (UTC)

Disappointing to read your comments. I shall check over the Marsden article again looking at spacing, punctuation etc. "butted up" is not an expression I have come across before. When you say a line by line review needs doing again for citations are you talking about Marsden or all the articles checked thus far. When you say "Is that right?" Do you mean am I happy for you to do this or what? Frankly as I have said before you must be happy with the articles and listings. If you are not then they must be changed so that they are 100% in line with wikipedia's standards. All I want to do is get the job done. Did not consciously rush through Marsden or drop my standards. Given the number of articles and listings to be done I think I now need to take much more time on each. Cannot promise all punctuation etc will be to the highest standard but I shall do my best. It was never my strong point. If we are brutally honest I made a mistake in writing these wikipedia articles and will certainly not repeat that mistake but whatever you may think I was proud and pleased with what I have done and many other wiki articles that I have seen are of a much lower standard. That said I will not walk away from this as I am determined that the work will meet wiki standards however long this exercise may take. I shall therefore continue to the same standard that I have employed for the most recent articles and listings and if that is not good enough then you will have to make further changes to them yourself. I shall then look again at Marsden and then Walter Gilbert and report on progress in the usual manner. Weglinde (talk) 21:17, 23 August 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for your comments back - I was just so surprised by the Marsen article. Afterwards I thought maybe I misunderstood that you wanted mt to look at it. I've made a number of edits, but there are comments in our tracking sheets.
I'm sorry that my comments were disappointing - I was a bit stunned and could have been gentler. I totally understand your feelings about initial articles. I am so surprised at what I did initially - and it was the incredible guidance of someone who was a Cambridge scholar who got me on my feet here. There's a lot to learn. You've come a long way! Thanks for your confidence in me!
I think "butted up" comes from carpentry - in making a butt-joint. I could be wrong. It means that things are smushed (a Carole technical term) together, like these sentences. ...end of the night.Then, in the morning, we at.At 11, we ..."
The "is that right" question is whether I need to go back to checking the sources against cited text. I was wondering if you were expecting me to be going back to a very thorough review again. Sorry if it sounded snippy!

Incidentally I have looked at Cawthra and definitely prefer the images in a gallery and not added to the table. Are you going to remove the new images you have found in view of your earlier comments. I prefer that you do so. I was expecting to see where the challenge came from on the image copyright. Perhaps it was in another compartment. Anyway as I have said I do hope that you will not pursue this. Incidentally and returning to your comments on Marsden, what does "copy-paste" mean? You will see my problem here in that so much of this is a new language! Anyway the decision is I guess yours but I was pleased with the Cawthra article when I left it but not so happy with it now. Weglinde (talk) 21:25, 23 August 2012 (UTC)

The point is to try to make it easy for the reader to connect the artwork with what is written about it. What are your thoughts about why the gallery is preferable?
Nope, I'm not doing anything more about the copyright issue than I said I would: I deleted the tag in commons that had the warning about using the images - and, as I said, referred to our discussion on the talk page. If someone wants to contest it, then they can refer to your comments about resolving it quite awhile ago. (See: https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Category:Joseph_Hermon_Cawthra_%28sculptor%29&action=history)
Copy-paste generally refers to someone either copying text directly from a web site, by copying and pasting, or by typing the words exactly like they were on the source. I've found several spots previously where I had to reword stuff taken directly from a source, the most recent being, Two Temple Place.--CaroleHenson (talk) 21:55, 23 August 2012 (UTC)

Reference your comments. When I asked you to look again at the Marsden article it was simply because I thought that was the drill. When I had finished my work you took over and did a disambiguation and AWB. Then the article could be moved to the done box. Suggest we move on from this unpleasant turn of events. When I have finished an article I will tell you that I have done so and you will then do a disambiguation and AWB. If you want to do a more radical rewrite then that is up to you. It might be more practical and realistic to finish all of the present exercise first otherwise we might dwell too long on each article. Let us move on now and finish this work as speedily as possible. I certainly do not expect you to check that the citations work.

Weglinde (talk) 22:08, 23 August 2012 (UTC)


Letting this conversation go for now sounds like an excellent idea.--CaroleHenson (talk) 22:23, 23 August 2012 (UTC)



Have looked at your comments on Marsden more closely. As you say the MPP articles give lots of informstiion but if a link to it is given I fail to see the point in reciting the facts again. As for the comment that the assertion that Marsden's memorials were mostly in Lancashire needs a citation is baffling. It is simply a fact that apart from Bude all his memorials were in Lancashire. Also when in writing about the St Annes memorial i describe Marsden's portrayal of the mother how can I give a citation? There is a photograph of the mother and child there for people to see for themselves! Will do what I can to improve this article but I shall not work overlong on this as there is so much else to do and if you want to make further changes then you are free to do so. Weglinde (talk) 21:50, 23 August 2012 (UTC)

A new day[edit]

Hi there, I think I both misunderstood what was happening and overreacted. Sorry about that!

I think reviewing 2 articles a day is too much. I'd like to be able to do some writing - and do a bit of copy editing, wikifying, etc. on just one article a day.

I've finished Marden and marked it done.--CaroleHenson (talk) 03:39, 24 August 2012 (UTC)

I agree. For the record I will leave Walter Gilbert for the moment- don't know that much about him. Instead my next three candidates will be Todmorden War Memorial, Preston Cenotaph and St James' Church, Warter. When I have finished my work on them I will move them to the done section so that you can do your disambiguation and AWB work. You will not be expected to look at the citations formats. I think I know the drill now and will make sure that the link works and try to avoid unreliable citation sources (blogs.etc.). For the record I am anxious at this point to finish work on all articles other than those remaining which cover stained glass and of course the French ones which we have agreed to do last. Weglinde (talk) 07:26, 24 August 2012 (UTC)

Ok. I'm still going to go through the checklist to get the articles as wikified as possible. But we had a good routine going and you're making sure the content is properly cited, with reliable sources, is huge. I'll work on the rest, understanding that's my goal. Go ahead at your pace, do the best you can and I'll pace myself to what I can manage in a day. I'll watch for what you put up in the upper sections.--CaroleHenson (talk) 10:52, 24 August 2012 (UTC)

That is fine. The articles that I have written were not incidentally chosen randomly but for specific reasons. It may be of interest and give you a better feel for what I have written if I give a short explanation of why I have chosen a particular sculptor or a particular memorial. Writing these articles was often a trip down Memory Lane a sort of "À la recherche du temps perdu" and revisiting the articles has rekindled those memories. When I finish on any given piece I shall write a short note on my reasons for chosing the subject. May be boring but no matter. It will be quite cathartic to write the pieces. I am working on Preston Cenotaph at the moment. Although I live in London and have done so since the age of 7 I was born in Lancashire and as a boy spent many happy holidays staying with my Aunt in Preston. Market Square has always been a vivid memory with the magnificent pillared Harris Art Gallery and Museum dominating it. Lancashire had been the centre of a vibrant Cotton Industry but that went into decline well before the Second World War. When I remember it, say from 1946 onwards it was firstly a typical Cotton Mill town with much Accrington Red Brick in evidence and slowly, as with most English towns, it was taken over by the post-war developers who pulled down most of the older buildings including many magnificent factory chimney stacks (Blake's "Those satanic mills" and replaced them with some awful modernist architecture. The 1940's and 50's were hard times in "austerity Britain" with food rationing etc. However Preston always had happy memories and when I started looking at the papers of Henry Pegram at The National Archives it was a good excuse to visit Preston again and photograph the Cenotaph. Lancashire remains important to me which was why I loved Marsden and his work. When I looked through his papers at The National Archive I remember reading how when he was offered a commission and asked what regiment he preferred he replied "any, as long as it a Lancastrian one...." I loved him for that and I guess that is why in my piece on him I commented on his predilection for Lancashire War Memorials. You will know when I have finished Preston Cenotaph when it appears in the "done" section. Weglinde (talk) 14:23, 24 August 2012 (UTC)

Sounds good! That's very interesting! You're right that it gives me a better idea of why you've chosen the articles you have - and why they mean so much to you.
I'm still working on Vernon Hill - but feel free to jump in with anything you want to add. I'm, so far, finding a lot of information about him - particularly about other sculpture and print works.
As an FYI, I'm also going to be working on Night in paintings over the next week or two. Over many months I did a lot of work on Vincent Van Gogh works, including List of works by Vincent van Gogh and new or expanded articles that branch from this list to other VVG articles. One of the things that I really enjoyed was learning the meaning behind the painting, what the artist might have been going through and the context compared to other works. So, working on the Night in paintings and getting a bit deeper is really fun for me. Luckily several people have jumped in to get things rolling. I'll still be around - and I'll enjoy this, too!--CaroleHenson (talk) 15:17, 24 August 2012 (UTC)

Van Gogh work sounds really interesting. Am now moving to the Todmorden War Memorial article. East Lancashire is an area rich in War Memorials and I went to that area for a few days to look at and photograph War memorials by Marsden, Rosslyn and others. Church, Heywood, Tottington etc are all in this area. The Todmorden memorial is a work by Gilbert Bayes and I did quite a long “Your Archives” article on him and his work and had access to some interesting Ministry of Works files at The National Archives. A visit to Todmorden then was a must and I saw and photographed Bayes’ work. It was located in a “Garden of Remembrance” and was, if I am honest, a disappointment. I added details to my “Your Archives” file and a short piece for Wikipedia. I had read that Walter Gilbert’s Burnley War Memorial was well worth seeing and it is also in the East Lancashire area. Unusually it is not in Burnley town centre as one would expect but in the grounds of a stately home called Townley Hall. Visit made to Hall which crammed full of antiques so well worth a visit. Gilbert’s War Memorial a beautiful work. I wrote a short piece on it for Wikipedia and a short piece on Gilbert. I shall now tackle an improvement of the Todmorden article and that on the church in Warter. The village of Warter is not far from East Lancashire and lies over the border in Yorkshire and I went to visit the church there whilst staying in East lancashire as it has some Gilbert Bayes’ work in the church graveyard. We have an organisation here in England called something like the Church Preservation Trust which looks after churches that have become redundant. The Trust maintains them and they are open to the public. The church in Warter comes under their jurisdiction and was exquisite with many treasures inside which led me to write the Wikipedia article as there was little about it on the internet and I thought it would benefit from some publicity. Bayes’ works in the churchyard were majestic. When the Todmorden and Warter articles are finished with I shall put in the done section. Weglinde (talk) 16:12, 24 August 2012 (UTC)

Sounds good! You sure have put a lot of time into these articles! Good work!
I'm going to do a review of Preston Cenotaph for a bit. Catch up with you later!--CaroleHenson (talk) 16:28, 24 August 2012 (UTC

As the "New Day" ends I have put Todmorden War Memorial into the done box. Have removed "Your Achives" link but if you think what I have done on Preston Cenotaph is a good idea then I can do the same for Bayes. i.e. Put a note on the Todmorden article which will be a synopsis of what was on "Your Archives". That's it for today. Warter Church tomorrow.

Weglinde (talk) 17:10, 24 August 2012 (UTC)

Postscript to new day[edit]

See you have done a huge amount of work on Vernon Hill. Bravo! I first visited Guildford Cathedral to see Eric Gill's work there as I was writing a "Your Archives" piece on Gill. The Cathedral itself is modern and rather dull but does have some great internal and external sculpture. I soon learned that the guides at the Cathedral knew little about the sculpture (they could not answer my questions) and I got quite friendly with one and was asked to do an information sheet about Gill and the others. Instead I did a wikipedia piece and that article is now used by the guides when showing visitors around and the Dean has a copy which he has put in the library. Vernon Hill's bronze relief door was one of my favourites so I wrote a piece on him in "Your Archives". He also did some work for a church at Hanwell near where I live. Incidentally one of the sculptors who did work at Guildford was Dennis Huntley. I thought his work super and was frustrated when I was unable access any information on the internet. I end up meeting with Huntley ( a rather frail old chap) and promised to put together a piece on his work. That piece ended up as the wikipedia article, one that we shall look at soon. Huntley, who I suspect has now died, was delighted with what I had done and I have a letter from his grandson thanking me for the wikipedia article and saying that he had not realised how good and important an artist his grandpa was. Weglinde (talk) 17:31, 24 August 2012 (UTC)

Oh, that is so sweet! I'm glad that you made a difference in the family's lives.
I've finished Preston Cenotaph and will do a quick assessment of Todmorden War Memorial, but I'll save any major editing/review for tomorrow.--CaroleHenson (talk) 17:41, 24 August 2012 (UTC)

Todmorden War Memorial - Wow, nice![edit]

Wow! Todmorden War Memorial looks nice. I'll run through the list - but I love the look just opening the article page. Very nice!--CaroleHenson (talk) 17:46, 24 August 2012 (UTC)

Vernon Hill[edit]

Although rather late in the day I thought I would send you one more message.

Preston Cenotaph. I have found the link concerning the Roll of Honour in the Harris Museum and will add to article tomorrow. On Gilbert Scott's comment that he designed the monument to have a "Greek feel" I cannot trace where I got the quote from so will delete it. Perhaps it was in Derek Boorman's book. I did have a copy but cleared it out for a local jumble sale some time ago.

Vernon Hill. I see that you took much of the MAPP information and put it into the article. That was a lot of work for you but obviously you think it adds to the article. For remaining articles that I rework that have a MAPP page I shall take a leaf from your book and repeat what you have painstakingly done for Hill. Also pleased you retained "Your Archives" link as it has important information on his military service.

Will no doubt talk tomorrow.Weglinde (talk) 18:36, 24 August 2012 (UTC)

Regarding "Greek feel" check out: http://www.history-preston.net84.net/warmemorials.html
Yep, talk to you tomorrow!--CaroleHenson (talk) 18:46, 24 August 2012 (UTC)

I did see that but thought it would be classified as a blog. Anyway you have solved the problem and I shall put that link into article tomorrow

Weglinde (talk) 18:53, 24 August 2012 (UTC)

Hmmm, it's not a blog, but it might be a personal site. When I saw the copyright at the bottom - and "History-Project" for Preston, with only Preston buildings I thought it was a go. But it could be a really nicely formatted personal site, where they copyright their info. You might be right that it's not a reliable site.--CaroleHenson (talk) 19:04, 24 August 2012 (UTC)

That is what I thought. In fact I think the writer has taken this from the wiki article. I will delete the reference to "Greek feel"

Weglinde (talk) 21:07, 24 August 2012 (UTC)

I have deleted reference "Greek feel" and there seemed no reason to keep photograph Harris Art Gallery. That also deleted. On the Roll of Honour I have inserted link but would be most obliged if you would check what I have done as I suspect I should have put reference in "nb" formatting. If I have got it wrong and you correct it I will be able see what you had to do. Many thanks. Weglinde (talk) 21:23, 24 August 2012 (UTC)

Ok, that's done. I've moved Preston Cenotaph (I can finally remember how to spell it!) and Vernon Hill to done. Yeah! Thanks for finishing up the PC changes!
I'm going to work on the Nights in paintings for a bit. Probably tomorrow I'll get back to Works of Nathaniel Hitch. I've been needing a break from it for awhile, but it would be nice to get that one done.--CaroleHenson (talk) 22:04, 24 August 2012 (UTC)

Alfred Turner[edit]

Have some unusual problems with St James' Warter so will put to one side for the moment. I will next tackle Alfred Turner. Will adjust tracking document tomorrow. Alfred Turner has good coverage on MPP so will be good practice for me. Expect it will take me two days to complete properly so hope complete by Sunday evening.Weglinde (talk) 21:47, 24 August 2012 (UTC)

That sounds great!--CaroleHenson (talk) 22:05, 24 August 2012 (UTC)
Wow, you came a long way on this article! I went ahead and stepped in with some formatting - mostly just grouping things together and letting the notable comissions stand out. Of course, I know you'll let me know when you want me to go into greater detail (copy edit, citation format, etc.)
If you have the time and inclination, it would be great if you took a peak at Vernon Hill (sculptor). I think I got so close to it that it would be great to have a fresh set of eyes look for copy edit issues. Hope you're having a great day!--CaroleHenson (talk) 15:08, 25 August 2012 (UTC)

One more push with Alfred Turner and I shall have finished. Will report to this effect tomorrow. Will certainly have a look at Vernon Hill. Already had one look and thought it fine but will look through it again and report tomorrow.

Two points that I would like your opinion on. I left St Jsmes' Warter because there was so little online to confirm what I had written. I started to remember the background. The church is run by the Yorkshire Wolds Centre Trust, an organisation rather like the Churches Preservation Trust I mentioned yesterday. When I visited Warter there were several rather informal information slips around and I ended up piecing all these together to write my report. I did hear subsequently from the Trust thanking me for my article. I am now e-mailing them to ask if they are aware of any summary information on the web. Thought I would let you know what my problem is. In essence it seems that my article is the fullest description around.

Reply Makes sense. I ran across the English Heritage site yesterday. Did you try running a search on their lists?--CaroleHenson (talk) 18:16, 25 August 2012 (UTC)

Second point concerns Dennis Huntley. I gave you some background yesterday. This is another case where there was little information on the internet so I painstakingly put something together, including having meetings with Huntley to find out what he had done. Again there may be difficulties when it comes to the editing and giving citations.

Reply Ok, we'll take it one by one. You're a good searcher - and becoming extremely good at discerning reliable sources. I cn take a quick peak though and see what comes up.--CaroleHenson (talk) 18:16, 25 August 2012 (UTC)

I did not by the way get around to giving you any background notes on Turner. I did spend some time at the Tate Archives going through their collection of Turner's papers which was very helpful and also managed to secure and buy an old copy of the Ashmolean Catalogue which again gave me lots of information. I also secured an invitation to visit Fishmonger's Hall which is not normally open to the public and saw Turner's Fishergirl and Fisherman for myself. The Fulham War Memorial is close by where I live so was able to see and photograph that. For the rest there was the usual digging around but I ended up liking Turner's work.

Reply. Fun, I'm a bit jealous. You've had some wonderful experiences. I know it's a lot, I mean a LOT, of work to wikify the articles, but they are becoming so good. I took a stroll down memory lane last night taking a look at what has been done and realized it's so good to keep that perspective when I get lost in the weeds sometimes. Thanks so much for all your hard work on them. Sorry if I can be a bear (aka grouch if "bear" isn't used in England) at times.

Will report tomorrow when I have finished the Turner article and had a look at Vernon Hill. Also look forward to any ideas you have on Dennis Huntley and St James' Warter.

Oh and by the way my next job will be Louis Frederick Roslyn.

I made replies above and I'll take a quick peak on Huntley and St James' Warter right now.--CaroleHenson (talk) 18:16, 25 August 2012 (UTC)

That's all very positive. I have just gone through Alfred Turner again and am happy with it. Hope you are too and will be able to do your disambiguation and AWB and then send to the "done" box.

Will look through Vernon Hill and look forward to your comments and Huntley and St James' Warter. Just for the record the Yorkshire Wolds people are not English Heritage, who, as you say, do excellent and informative listings.

Many thanks. Weglinde (talk) 18:22, 25 August 2012 (UTC)

St James', Warter[edit]

  • I found one citation on the town of Warter page - and I used it where applicable in the article.
  • Take a look at this site. I don't think it's a personal site - nor a blog - it looks like a community site with info about the Wolds area. There's a little bit about the church. In the meantime, I'll keep looking. If nothing else, I'm getting ext links for the article.--CaroleHenson (talk) 19:01, 25 August 2012 (UTC)
  • Here's an article: article. I verified the article was from a magazine with an editorial staff.
  • I've been searching on: Warter church Yorkshire (taking St James out of the equation if there's punct issues or slightly different name in some instances)--CaroleHenson (talk)

Jolly good! All of this will prove most helpful when I tackle St James' Warter. Meanwhile I am awaiting a response from the Yorkshire Wolds people. Weglinde (talk) 07:20, 26 August 2012 (UTC)

Dennis Huntley[edit]

Try these search strings:

Will follow these leads when I get to doing Huntley. I am most obliged to you for your efforts. Weglinde (talk) 07:21, 26 August 2012 (UTC)

Make things easier?[edit]

Hi, I am needing a break from the intensive editing. And I know that we have different expectations - so I did the following to try to make things easier:

  • tagged the articles with what needs to be done
  • cleaned-up the tracking sheet so that there's just one short bit of comments for each article
  • put the ones needing the most work in a grouping before "on hold"

That way you can go through the list and just add {{done}} to the end of each article that you've finished to your satisfaction. You don't have to move them or do anything but mark done when you're ready to call it done from your standpoint.

Then, when I have the time and inclination, I'll come back to the sheet and work on the last bits I do before moving it up to the final done category above? How does that work?

I'm still around, so if you have questions - as always feel free to ask. I'll look forward to hearing from you. And, you'll see me bop in and out from time to time.--CaroleHenson (talk) 05:52, 26 August 2012 (UTC)

I do hope that you have not overdone things! You have got through an enormous amount of work over the last three weeks and had to carry me at the beginning. At least I now feel that I can make a decent stab at things. Your work on tracking sheet most helpful.

As you say you must now ease up a little. After all we do not have to rush things and it does not really matter how long the present task takes but that it is done well. I shall continue to work on the non-stained glass articles one by one and at the end of that stage do Durst and Hitch. After that I will tackle the stained glass articles and listings and finish up with those matters French. Also you will of course know when I am at work on any given piece when you see the "in use" tag.

Just let me say once more that I do appreciate how much work you have put in of late and that you have taught me a great deal and for that I shall always be grateful. I am looking forward to finishing this exercise over the coming months and will welcome your "bopping in" whenever you feel disposed to do so. Thank you Weglinde (talk) 07:33, 26 August 2012 (UTC)

Yep, I'll still be around - that's for sure - just at a slower pace. I was surprised to see the number of articles that are pretty much just needing references. And, you've got two more that are on the precipice of being done/done. So, that's all good news. Talk to you later,--CaroleHenson (talk) 07:56, 26 August 2012 (UTC)

Food for thought... DYK[edit]

You may want to consider nominating one or more of the done articles for a Wikipedia:Did you know. Personally I like Nathaniel Hitch's monument to the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA)

The Did you know - could be something, like:

Did you know that sculptor Nathaniel Hitch created a memorial sculptor to commemorate the service of animals (horses, camels, pigeons, dogs and more) during World War I?

Then people link directly to the article and look around. If you'd like I'd be happy to submit a nomination or two for you. You're great with the poignant aspects of the stories. If there are others that you think would make better DYKs that's great, too. Calling it a night. Thanks for your gracious appreciation! It's been, and will continue to be, good working with you.--CaroleHenson (talk) 08:15, 26 August 2012 (UTC) Sounds a good idea. I shall give it some thought.

Weglinde (talk) 08:57, 26 August 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for August 26[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Alfred Turner (sculptor), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page The City (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.

Great work on English war memorials and artists articles[edit]

Kingsthorpe War Memorial.jpg War memorial and visual arts barnstar
Great job on all the articles you've written! They're looking great! CaroleHenson (talk) 16:36, 26 August 2012 (UTC)

Chucks! My face has gone red. Am making good progress on Roslyn and even managing get images in tables. You are obviously a jolly good teacher. Will contact tomorrow when hopefully Roslyn is done.

Weglinde (talk) 20:13, 26 August 2012 (UTC)

Sounds great! Look forward to hearing from you!--CaroleHenson (talk) 21:00, 26 August 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for words of encouragement on tracking doc. Have dealt with all your citation requests. Only one left is Swanley/Sedge. Hope i can fund my source for this if not will remove. Weglinde (talk) 21:43, 27 August 2012 (UTC)

Gedge reference found (British Listed Buildings). Hope you will now move to "Done". Many thanks.Weglinde (talk) 22:00, 27 August 2012 (UTC)

Ok, I will move it to done. I've moved all the items where the citation needed tags were removed, but the citations weren't provided, to the talk page. There was one citation that was at the name of the work (the beginning of the content) - versus the end of the content, and I just figured that was a mistake and moved it to the end.
You know, it's totally up to you if you want to have the article moved to final done status. I just don't consider leaving an article with unsourced material "done"- especially as it seems to ripple throughout the internet world - but the citation tags can remain and the article considered done from your perspective. If we leave it in the not-quite-done status, 2 things could happen: 1) someone could see find it in the list of articles missing citations and fix it or 2) after a few weeks or so I might resolve it.--CaroleHenson (talk) 00:25, 28 August 2012 (UTC)

That is fine. I shall in future move to the done list when I think I have done all that I can. Of course you were right to clear up the Roslyn article until it was 100%. Indeed I learned from what you did. One example was the Imperial Building where I said it was now a restaurant/public house. I only knew that because I popped in for a meal when I had taken my photographs but of course that should not go in an article as it is difficult verify. I am slowly learning. Off now to see my daughter. Will talk no doubt tomorrow. Weglinde (talk) 07:17, 28 August 2012 (UTC)

Newbury_Abbot_Trent and Walter Gilbert[edit]

Have finished Roslyn. Struggled at times but kept at it. Learned a lot! Will now tackle Newbury Abbot Trent and Walter Gilbert. Tomorrow travelling Southampton to see one of my daughters. She has a birthday. Will not therefore do any serious editing until Wednesday. Thought I should tell you lest you felt I was stacking (ha! ha!) On Roslyn had to drop Bowes-Lyon bust as I could not verify. Shame as I must have got the information from somewhere. Have also decided "The Victorian Web" is a reliable source. Hope you agree. Will be in touch in due course.Weglinde (talk) 16:09, 27 August 2012 (UTC)

Sounds good! Have a great time with your daughter.
I'd say that Victorian Web sure seems to provide excellent information when we cannot find it anywhere else. When I first say citation from the site, I looked up Intro and found: 1) it is one of the oldest academic and scholarly websites, 2) there's an editor, 3) is used for scholarly purposes and 4) has credentialed contributors. So, I'm assuming it's good.--CaroleHenson (talk) 19:21, 27 August 2012 (UTC)

Good. I will use The Victorian Web in future!Weglinde (talk) 21:45, 27 August 2012 (UTC)

Yep, it's used throughout the articles we've worked on. Does someone think it's an unreliable source?--CaroleHenson (talk) 00:26, 28 August 2012 (UTC)

No. I was just checking.

Weglinde (talk) 07:10, 28 August 2012 (UTC)

The National Archives[edit]

On Roslyn you will note that I have removed the link to The Natiional Arhives. It seems they have moved "Your Archives" And it is a tortuous job to get to any given article. Best I think to loose the connection completely. I will adjust those articles we have already done and remove links "Your Archives"Weglinde (talk) 18:59, 27 August 2012 (UTC)

Ok, that's a shame!--CaroleHenson (talk) 19:22, 27 August 2012 (UTC)

Additional link for N. Hitch work[edit]

I went through and finished finding additional links to articles. I don't know if you want to add anything to your articles, but: for Nathaniel Hitch, he did work for Church of St. Agnes and St. Pancras, Toxteth Park.--CaroleHenson (talk) 07:02, 29 August 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for this. I shall add Toxteth Park church to list. Have completed Newbury Abbot Trent which is now in the done box. Will next tackle Walter Gilbert. Will also look at reworking article covering Eric Gill's work at Morecambe Hotel. When I visited my daughter yesterday I brought back the book I had purchased on this hotel as a good deal of the article was based on information in that book so it will be an excellent source of citations. In fact I shall do that before Gilbert. Gilbert needs a major rework so I guess I shall need a couple of days to do this.

Weglinde (talk) 08:43, 29 August 2012 (UTC)

Eric Gill works at the Midland Hotel, Morecambe[edit]

Did not dwell overlong on his as the book I had retrieved from my daughter was the source of all the citations. The "Your Archives" article link still work here so I have left it for the moment as there was a lot of Eric Gill informatioin in it. However because of the lack of citations in the article you may decide best remove the link. I leave to you. Incidentally I note you are looking at Arnold Wathen Robinson. I am going to Bristol in October for three days to take several photographs and improve my knowledge of his works in that City. Thought this might be useful to know as you go through the edit process. I am not of course suggesting that the rework be held back. It should be done as part of our current exercise. Now for Walter Gilbert. Weglinde (talk) 09:21, 29 August 2012 (UTC)

Ok, I'll take a look at them. I'm going a bit slower today, so if not today within a day or two.--CaroleHenson (talk) 17:42, 29 August 2012 (UTC)
Wow, both are done! They were in VERY good shape! I did some table work on Trent's, but not much else. And Gill I didn't make any edits - I don't think - I just ran the AWB, disambig and find links. Great work!--CaroleHenson (talk) 19:07, 29 August 2012 (UTC)


That is good news! I am making progress on Walter Gilbert but have unearthed a great deal of information so will take me a bit longer to finish.

Weglinde (talk) 19:12, 29 August 2012 (UTC)

Interesting fact[edit]

Hi, I thought you might like to know that writing - and then editing myself - is a slightly tragic experience. My initial pass is usually quite convoluted - I mean not good at all - but I need a bit of time to pass before I can copy edit effectively. By the time I really see what I wrote, I am horrified. I am a much better copy editor than writer - even though I really like to write. And what's most ironic is that the sentences that I most like - that seem to have the most personality - are the ones that really need to be copy edited. Argh! I like the finished product, but getting there isn't easy.--CaroleHenson (talk) 06:10, 30 August 2012 (UTC)

That is interesting. I cannot of course comment on your writing but your ability as an editor is proven. I suspect you are one of wikipedia's leading editors (if not you should be) and that is an art in itself.

I am still working on Walter Gilbert and some pressing appointments this week mean that I shall not in all probability finish until the weekend.

Looking at the tracking document we are indeed making good progress.

A few observations at this point.

1. John Cobbett. I think this was a mistake and written in the wake of the work I did on Guildford Cathedral. I started the article full of enthusiasm but remember now that I could not add anything of merit to what I had written. Perhaps we can

delete the article.

Reply Whatever you think. I did find some sources at google books. Unfortunately several of them are in snipet view. I didn't find anything on him that wasn't a copy of the WP article on the regular web search.--CaroleHenson (talk) 14:50, 30 August 2012 (UTC)
2. Dennis Huntley. Had another quick look and it would be very difficult add to the article or provide citations. You will remember that I explained that my motivation in writing the article was that there was so little information about concerning ment Huntley. I wonder whether I could ask you to edit the article now or when you have a spare moment. I do not think that I have anything to add.
Reply Ok. If there's very little written about a person, then it's not likely that they'd pass the "notabilty" test for an article at WP.
3. When I have finished Gilbert I intend to finish off Hitch and Durst. On Hitch I suspect I will add further references to
the Henry Moore archive papers and on Durst I seem to recall looking through a collection of papers at the Tate. On these just one question. In a situation where I have added information that I received from the church involved but am unable substantiate is there some way I can still keep the reference but with a tag - "This information received from a member of the church's congregation but unable to verify"- I am sure you can come up with a better wording. That way I can retain the information albeit without a citation. Please advise.
4. Once all the above is done, and the french articles aside, we shall have reached a point where we just have our stained glass people. That is super for me as they are all relatively freshly written and I will remember more easily where I got any given piece of information from.

Look forward to your comments

Weglinde (talk) 10:37, 30 August 2012 (UTC)

Ok, sounds good. I put in replies to #1 and #2.--CaroleHenson (talk) 14:50, 30 August 2012 (UTC)
Here's what I found for Huntley: google books
And, this for a couple of the Giuldford works: GC source.--CaroleHenson (talk) 14:56, 30 August 2012 (UTC)
Since the article is already started and there is info about them, I think it's a good idea to find what we can find sources for. My two-cents - whatever you think.--CaroleHenson (talk) 14:56, 30 August 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for comments. I will put what citations I can into the Cobbett and Huntley articles when their turn comes around and pass them to the done section even though they may not be entirely satisfactory.

Would appreciate your ideas on my 3 above. If I have information verbally or on e-mail from a church about a particular window but cannot give a citation leading to a book or article which substantiates what I have said could I put a tag saying, for example- "This information was given by a churchwarden or vicar of church XXX but cannot be verified"

Weglinde (talk) 22:20, 30 August 2012 (UTC)

I just went ahead and finished Cobbett and Huntley. They're done.
In response to the question about having recieved the info from someone - the information needs to come from a "published" source. Is it possible that it made it into a newsletter, article or some other published source?--CaroleHenson (talk) 23:20, 30 August 2012 (UTC)

Well done on Cobbett and Huntley! Do appreciate that information needs to come from a "published" source. However when reference to a "published" source is not possible because the information was not "published" but is just known at the church my question was whether some sort of tag could be inserted saying that the information came from a member of the church's congregation but cannot be verified. That way the information could be put into the article and the tag would show it is not verifiable. If this is impossible then so be it, the information will just have to be removed from the article. I was really wondering if there was a way of saving the information. This may apply to some of the stained glass articles but I will of course continue to search high and low for a "published" source. Continuing to work on Walter Gilbert. It is taking a while and you will see when I finish that I have in fact rewritten the article completely. Many thanks. Weglinde (talk) 07:35, 31 August 2012 (UTC)

I've gone and read the guidelines about sourcing articles - backwards and forwards - and read what constitutes content for a note (as an alternate approach for info that's not got a reliable source).
Information that's not from a published source should cannot be used as a source. There are a couple of issues:
Basically, if there is any other than a 100% restatement of what's in a published article (i.e., no extrapolation of what the author might have meant - and no inclusion of information not directly provided by the source) - then it's original research and should not be in the article.
I get why it's frustrating, especially when the facts are so clear, but what I've read is pretty clear about it. Feel free to look over the material yourself. There's also several place you could post the question: village pump, the visual arts talk page, or the original research noticeboard.--CaroleHenson (talk) 08:39, 31 August 2012 (UTC)
Oh, I missed a point: And, there should be nothing in the body of the article that's not sourced. External link use is a bit broader - although it has restrictions, too. In this case, there's not an external link that would solve the issue.--CaroleHenson (talk) 08:42, 31 August 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for researching this so thoroughly. I now understand that there are no exceptions to the rule and when I re-look at the stained glass articles I will delete anything that cannot be verified from "published" sources. The same will apply to Durst and Hitch. Again thanks for this comprehensive reply which, as always, very helpful. Weglinde (talk) 08:50, 31 August 2012 (UTC)

Walter Gilbert[edit]

Hope to finish tomorrow. Will then tackle Alan Durst over weekend. Think we are getting there.Weglinde (talk) 18:50, 31 August 2012 (UTC)

Absolutely! Have you seen how long the "done" list is looking! It's great and amazing the amount of work we've done.--CaroleHenson (talk) 19:38, 31 August 2012 (UTC)
Wow! Is it every coming along! And you've found so many really impressive works. I split it into 2 articles because it's so long - wow (did I say that already?).--CaroleHenson (talk) 20:18, 31 August 2012 (UTC)

Golly. See you have joined in my effort and your split with a listing as a second document is inspired and improved the article no end! Great stuff! Looks as though I am near the end. Will make one final check through tomorrow and then pass to the done section. Thanks for what you have done. Talk tomorrow. Weglinde (talk) 21:25, 31 August 2012 (UTC)

Yep and I've seen the great progress that you've been making on the articles! I'll get to the ce, etc. soon. Keep up the great work! You're becoming a pro!--CaroleHenson (talk) 20:16, 1 September 2012 (UTC)

Glad you pleased with Walter Gilbert. Am working on the Listing of works by Alan Durst and hope to finish tomorrow. Weglinde (talk) 21:00, 1 September 2012 (UTC)

Latest progress[edit]

1. Have complete work on Alan Durst listing. Ready for you do disambiguation and AWL.
2. Walter Gilbert. Erdington is in West Midlands. West Midlands is a relatively new County. Try Erdington. Warwickshire. That might work. Warwickshire was the old County name.
3. Next on my list is Arnold Wathen Robinson and the listing of his works. On Tyndale Baptist Church I will trim the text down considerably. What I have written was painstakingly compiled after several exchanges with the local vicar who was extremely absent minded and kept changing his mind but I fully agree with you that it is too long. Would it be possible to put a much shortened description in the listing proper but leaving the whole text in the "talk" page. I would then add to the end of the shortened text a note "See "Talk" page for a more detailed description given by the local vicar.". Just an idea. I would appreciate your verdict.
Good to see the waiting list gradually reducing.Weglinde (talk) 12:16, 2 September 2012 (UTC)
1. Ok. I'll work on the reviews today.
2. Ok. I'll update West Midlands to West Midlands (county)
3. Thanks for picking up Robinson. I found this site for a citation that's been in an open window for a couple of days: http://stainedglass.llgc.org.uk/person/566
Lots of great progress!!!--CaroleHenson (talk) 14:39, 2 September 2012 (UTC)

I have revisited the listing of the works of Gilbert and removed anything that could have consituted a "cut and paste" from the Medhurst work. Hope this will now pass your scutiny and that it will eventually pass to the "done" section. I am sure that you are the same but it is such a relief to see items in the top section.

Weglinde (talk) 18:11, 2 September 2012 (UTC)

Note comments in tracking document so will relook at Walter Gilbert (sculptor) and List of works by Walter Gilbert and change any copy pastes from Medhurst. See List of works by Alan Durst still in "Done by Weglinde - queue for final review by CH" box. Is this listing okay or have you still to finish your work?Weglinde (talk) 17:20, 2 September 2012 (UTC)

Great! Yes, I am still in the midst of review. I'm going to finish Walter Gilbert, then go to his works -- then get to Alan Durst. It shouldn't be too much longer before I'm done with the Walter Gilbert (sculptor) article.--CaroleHenson (talk) 17:29, 2 September 2012 (UTC)
I still have some more work to do - but they're coming along. I did mostly formatting and clean-up today - I'll get come back and do the review of the text/citations for the works in the queue.--CaroleHenson (talk) 19:49, 2 September 2012 (UTC)

Summary from today[edit]

I spent about 7 hours on the articles today, so it's probably good to sum up:

Based on the amount of time for edits (punctuation, incomplete sentences, formatting, copy editing, rewording some copy-paste items for Donald Gilbert's info (which still would have had to have been done for a note), etc.), it might be another day or two before I do any reviews.

It was a lot of work, but things are sure coming along! The done list is looking pretty good! And even though it's been a ton of work, it has to be rewarding, I would think and hope, to see all your many months of really good hard work have a bit of polish.--CaroleHenson (talk) 03:19, 3 September 2012 (UTC)

Yes you have been working extremely hard and I do appreciate how much better the articles look for your intervention. I will return to Walter Gilbert (sculptor)] and List of works by Alan Durst and do further work based on your comments. My work on Arnold Wathen Robinson and List of works by Alan Wathen Robinson is almost complete so expect that to soon appear in the "done" box for you to review etc, but do appreciate that it might be a day or two before you look at any more reviews. Once these are out of the way, my next rework will be on Karl Parsons. Much appreciate your imput and comments. On punctuation guess I should have paid more attention at school all those years ago!Weglinde (talk) 06:27, 3 September 2012 (UTC)
Sorry, I meant your hard work! I'll keep a peak out and do a bit today. I see that you put Robinson's articles in done, so I'll peak at them.--CaroleHenson (talk) 14:42, 3 September 2012 (UTC)

Okay. I have been through the List of works by Alan Durst and tried to replace the many references to the papers at the Tate. There are still many left. What happened on Durst was that I spent two days at the Tate Archive and was given access to Durst's papers. I made a list of all the works that were mentioned in those papers. I then returned home and e-mailed most of the churches involved to get them to confirm that the Durst work mentioned in my e-mail was still in the church. I asked them to let me have a description if possible and any other relevant information. I asked them whether there were any books or written references to the Durst work in question. Many were kind enough to reply and once they confirmed that the Durst piece was in situ and in some cases gave me a description I was able to enter into my listing or article. Sometimes I had to chase the church for a reply and we must take into consideration that a vicar, busy with baptisms, marriages and funerals plus the work involved in covering his parish which would often consist of several churchs, would not perhaps regard it as a priority to reply to some query from someone he did not know concerning an artifact in his church. Often the vicar could not answer my questions and referred me to a churchwarden. Only on a few occasions were they able to point me in the direction of a written source for the information. Frankly then Caroline I cannot do more than I have done on this so I must leave it to you to either pass the article/listing to the done section or, where you think it necessary, to remove any Durst pieces were you think there is insufficient reliable sourcing material. I have added a few links to the article. I shall now look at Walter Gilbert and your queries there before moving onto fresh pastures and Karl Parsons Weglinde (talk) 15:19, 3 September 2012 (UTC)

Ok, good - I'm glad you were able to find some additional references where you could. I'll take a peak, too. Arnold Robinson's article is done - and I'll take a peak at the list of works. I'll put in about 1/2 hour more today and then be back soon.--CaroleHenson (talk) 15:25, 3 September 2012 (UTC)

That is great. On Walter Gilbert (Sculptor) I have tried to avoid any obvious cut and pasting but decided against adding anymore from Medhurst. The article has a link to Medhurst so the reader can click on that if they wish and read all the other information in Medhurst's excellent piece. I would now like to move on from Walter Gilbert and leave any other changes to your good judgement. Please do not overdo things. You never seem to stop and I would not like to think that I am giving you too much work. Why not have a good break whilst I look at Karl Parsons and when I have finished that I will let you know by moving it to the done section. Each day I seem to learn something new and in future work I shall make sure that I do not repeat what is in a cited source word for word. Weglinde (talk) 15:54, 3 September 2012 (UTC)

Ok, sounds good! I'll update my notes in the tracking sheet and catch up with you later.--CaroleHenson (talk) 16:45, 3 September 2012 (UTC)
Ok, I've made my updates. Since List of works by Arnold Wathen Robinson is nearly done, I thought I'd finish that first when I return. Walter Gilbert (sculptor) can be my next item - because that's the 2nd least amount of work. Then, work on the List of works by Alan Durst - fortunately, I am finding citations - and whatever we cannot find citations for can go in the notes. Even better than the notes, which are clearly WP:Original research, info from Durst's book would be a bit better (although a WP:Primary source) when we cannot find citations - but I cannot see it on google books (and I think I looked in the UK version). Is it available in libraries near you?
If you'd like me to work these in a different order, though, let me know.--CaroleHenson (talk) 17:13, 3 September 2012 (UTC)

No I am very happy with the order you suggest. As for the book it is not in libraries nearby but I do have a copy which I purchased from a second hand bookshop when I was writing my piece. (For an exhorbitant amount!) To be honest the book was mostly showing how to carve with only a few references to Durst's work. Weglinde (talk) 17:25, 3 September 2012 (UTC)

St Ambrose and St Luke[edit]

Have gone through my notes on St Ambrose and St Luke. In both cases Pevsner was not 100% sure that the work was by Robinson but using different words said that it was in all probability Robinson's work. Hope this answers your question as do not want to go to library unless necessary as a bit if a journey. Weglinde (talk) 18:28, 3 September 2012 (UTC)

Nope, that works for me! Thanks for checking.--CaroleHenson (talk) 18:38, 3 September 2012 (UTC)

Karl Parsons[edit]

Have finished my work on the list of his works. Hope you happy with it. Have been able to include a good stack of citations. Now turning to Louis Davis. Weglinde (talk) 07:04, 4 September 2012 (UTC)

I returned it to the to do list - with the things that still need to be done. There were some places where the citation needed tag was removed and no citation added.
When things get so quickly moved to done - just for the sake of checking them off - and removing my comments about what needed to be done, then it's very hard for me to trust what is being done. Like - are the citations that are used for items that I cannot look up the real citations? When you say you've removed copy/paste verbiage before, did you really remove all instances?
I may be misinterpreting what is happening - and if I am - I apologize. It is just seems to me at times that there's an effort to just mark things done so fast - and let undone things be swept under the carpet.
As I've said all along, this is completely a voluntary effort - on both our parts - if there's something you don't want to do, of course that's your prerogative. But please don't make things harder for me to to the finishing touches by removing tags when they're not resolved, removing my notes about what still needs to be done, etc. I makes me feel sad when what I've taken the time to identify gets brushed off.--CaroleHenson (talk) 14:52, 4 September 2012 (UTC)


Oh dear. Where did all this come from? I have been working hard all day on Louis Davis and your comments above really make my head spin and throw me into a pit of despondency! I am not aware that I removed any tags when the problem was not resolved. I shall make sure in future that I do not interfere with any comments you add. As for "it's very hard for me to trust what is being done" that is out of order. The haste to move things to the done box is because I wish to get this work done. You must bear in mind that I have spent five months writing these stained glass articles and when I then have to basically write them all again it is trying although I do understand why the job has to be done. This is the second time you have suddenly turned rather nasty and without warning and I really could do without such swings. I think I now know what needs to be done to rectify the remaining articles and if you wish to withdraw then I fully understand. I shall plod on at my own pace and do my best using all the knowledge that I have gained over the last few weeks. I do understand that you do what you do voluntarily and as I have said I appreciate your expertise but look I am 72 years of age, getting rather tired and am not prepared to tolerate any swinging of skirts. I suggest that I take the remaining articles, do what I can to improve them and then put them in the done box. You can then either look at them or leave them. The choice is yours but I think we should avoid keep going backwards and forwards with comments. When I say I have finished with an article then that is what I mean. "I makes me feel sad when what I've taken the time to identify gets brushed off". Do you read what you write? As you can see my anger is rising so best that I stop now. I will put Davis in the done box when I have finished it and will repeat this with the other articles. Alternatively I may stop using the tracking document completely. I will think it over. On the 24th September my wife and I go to Truro in Cornwall for a short holiday so I hope to finish the outstanding work by then. This does not apply to the French articles. I may relook at the articles on individual sculptors but I do not intend to rework the articles on the Eastern Somme etc . There are four articles involved- Eastern Somme, Western Somme, Oise and Aisne. As I have already admitted to you, these are in no way encyclopedic but are a sort of travelogue and I do not wish to rewrite them. It may be best to just delete them so if you feel they are sub-standard then just get rid of them. I have a copy to remind me of what were interesting trips to France so if they do disappear into the ether then I shall not lose any sleep. Thank you for all you have done over the last few weeks which I have much appreciated but feel it is best that we go our seperate ways!!!!

Weglinde (talk) 16:59, 4 September 2012 (UTC)

The Prologue[edit]

Have decided to act whilst the iron is hot. I will finish off Louis Davis but then just leave it on wikipedia.

I will cease looking at or working through the tracking document.I shall work on the remaining articles and listings on my own and at my own pace. On Hitch and Whall I shall probably take no action whatsoever and if someone kicks them off wikipedia then so be it! I shall look at putting citations into the work on Woodroffe, Woore, Payne and Veronica Whall.

Thank you again for all your effort. Should I ever try writing wikipedia articles again then I should be better equiped to do so thanks to your intervention but as I have said earlier I shall never ever repeat the exercise. Clearly it is not something I should attempt and am not that good at. It all seemed a good way of keeping my mind occupied once I had retired. I will find something else to do.

If I were you I would have a good rest and move on to your Van Gogh and I hope that whatever you choose to edit next does not involve such a major effort.

I strongly suggest that you now close your file on this matter as any further correspondence or comment will I suspect prove tiresome. Weglinde (talk) 17:25, 4 September 2012 (UTC)

Yep, I suppose it's mostly due to very different work styles and your urgency to get it done. I'll have the work page deleted. For most of the time it was a pleasure! Good luck to you - and I truly hope my comments of frustration didn't make you question the incredible work you've done!!!! You've added a lot to WP.--CaroleHenson (talk) 17:32, 4 September 2012 (UTC)

Hi there[edit]

Hi,

I've been working on several stained glass articles lately, and crossed paths with a couple of your articles. I ran an AWB sweep for edits on Christopher Whall and I hope you don't mind, I'm just going to do that for your list of articles as a bit of a touch-up.

In the meantime, I'll still working on several articles that branched out from a SuggestBot request to work on The Glass House (Fulham), so you may see me around but I'll try to be delicate about it. Hope all is well!--CaroleHenson (talk) 00:38, 12 September 2012 (UTC) Please feel free. I am just finishing off Christopher Whall and his group and then I am just left with Nathaniel Hitch. On Whall and Gloucester Cathedral I am having a small booklet printed so will bring back the extract from Veronica Whall's notes at the V & A which you put in the talk section. When the book is ordered I shall put the notes back in talk. Weglinde (talk) 06:38, 12 September 2012 (UTC)

Sounds good!--CaroleHenson (talk) 10:42, 12 September 2012 (UTC)

All citations added where possible to Whall articles and listings. Within the next 24 hours I am organising a booklet so would be obliged if any further tweaks or editing be held back for that period. After that feel free to make any changes you wish. I will move the Veronica Whall notes back to talk when booklet organised. I will now turn to Hitch, add citations etc and try wikify. My work is then done. I shall ponder over the French articles during my Truro vacations but will probably just withdraw them altogether. Incidentally you will note award of Barnstar. In fact Aandajm is probably not aware of your intervention so I am putting in this note so that he can see the scale of your involvement. Not sure how this all works but guess he can read back over our various exchanges of messages. Weglinde (talk) 07:58, 13 September 2012 (UTC)

Booklet organised. Veronica notes removed. Please feel free to do whatever you want with Whall articles/listings. I have finished with them. Thanks.

Weglinde (talk) 10:49, 13 September 2012 (UTC)

Barnstar of Diligence Hires.png The Barnstar of Diligence
In acknowledgement of your work on Christopher Whall! Amandajm (talk) 14:08, 12 September 2012 (UTC)

(Note: The field of Arts is not very well provided for, with regards to barn stars. So I chose this one because it was gold and shiny. Maybe we ought to design a stained glass barnstar!)

That is very nice and I am delighted!

Weglinde (talk) 14:21, 12 September 2012 (UTC)

Thanks, that's nice of you Weglinde! I am going to work a bit on a couple of other things, and then I'll take a peak at the Whall works articles. By the way, there's a difference between the two tags:
  • {{In use}} - means that someone is working on the article at present, please don't make any edits while this work is going on. It's generally used during the actual period of working on the article
  • {{Under construction}} - means that there's work going on to build, expand or clean-up article - so it's a way of letting the reader know that if that the article is in transition - it invites other contributors to jump in and help.
Anytime you don't want anybody mucking up what you're doing - just insert In use for the period of heavy editing, etc.--CaroleHenson (talk) 13:33, 13 September 2012 (UTC)

Hi[edit]

Was that you that entered the templates for citations?

As I mentioned on the IP talk page, I can return them and do a find and replace to add the comments til their ready so that they don't create all those errrors. Just let me know.--CaroleHenson (talk) 18:03, 13 September 2012 (UTC)

These were for my benefit as I struggle to remember the citation format. By putting in a template it makes it easier for me as I can then just enter the url, title and publisher plus retrieval date. If it is bad practice I will take them off.

Incidentally the Hitch piece is a good example of text that it will often be hard to substantiate with a citation. Very often what I wrote was written after much discussion with an authority at the church or cathedral involved. Sometimes I sent them my proposed text for approval and they added bits here and there.

I shall reduce the text to what is available on line and where a citation is not possible I shall put in the talk box.

Weglinde (talk) 18:26, 13 September 2012 (UTC)

Ok. Rather than tripping over the work you're doing - let me know when you're ready and I can pop back in commented out templates until they're ready to be used as real references (e.g., have a title, etc.)--CaroleHenson (talk) 18:33, 13 September 2012 (UTC)
(It was because I saw an IP address rather than a user name to something that created errors that I responded that way.)--CaroleHenson (talk) 18:34, 13 September 2012 (UTC)

Houston we have a problem.[edit]

Suddenly have a major malfunction on my laptop. When I edit in wikipedia and press the save button nothing happens. This made attempts yesterday to edit Nathaniel Hitch a nightmare. Until this sorted will remove "in use" tag. Thank goodness I had finished the stained glass work before this happened. I do have an I-pad so may try using that but am rather green with it and find editing work on it most difficult. I hope "normal service will resume" in the not too distant future but thought I should explain why I would appear to suddenly go quiet. Weglinde (talk) 07:02, 14 September 2012 (UTC)

Now limping along on one engine. Now press "save" button and wait 5 minutes- sometimes the correction takes sometimes not! Will persevere but will take some time. Would be grateful you steer clear list of Nathaniel Hitch's works until I have finished. I will in due course give you the green light so that you can run your usual checks.

Weglinde (talk) 11:11, 14 September 2012 (UTC)

Ok, sounds good!--CaroleHenson (talk) 14:08, 14 September 2012 (UTC)

Works of Nathaniel Hitch[edit]

Have added as many citations as I could find. Guess listing is much improved but there are still dozens of cases where I can only give the Henry Moore Archives as my source. I do not think there is a way to avoid this but if you haved any ideas that would be helpful.

I just need to make sure all the links work.

After my short vacation in Truro I shall look at the various French sculptors about whom I wrote wiki articles.

Weglinde (talk) 18:09, 16 September 2012 (UTC)

sounds good. I'll take a look. Have a lovely time in Truro!--CaroleHenson (talk) 21:28, 16 September 2012 (UTC)
I haven't forgotten about you. I get overwhelmed by the really large articles, but I'll be back and just tackle one section at a time. If there's one of the articles that you prefer I start with, let me know.--CaroleHenson (talk) 14:11, 17 September 2012 (UTC)

Don't worry. I was referring to the works of Nathaniel Hitch. Apart from that we have I thought finished with the other articles so not sure what you mean by "If there's one of the articles that you prefer I start with, let me know". We go to Truro on the 24th September for the week so I am now starting on the French sculptor pieces. I have begun with Maurice Ringot. I will let you know when I have finished with them all (guess about five/six weeks time) so that you can look them over and apply your usual tests. Many thanks.

Maurice Ringot[edit]

Caroline

Have finished the first of my French re-writes. See what you think. It is certainly an improvement on my first attempt (I hope).

Meanwhile

http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maurice_Ringot

This is the French version and includes some interesting facts about Ringot's movements to Normandie etc.etc. As you will see the article lacks verification tags so it is not clear where the information came from. Anyway I guess if you add my version to the French one then you will have a comprehensive idea of what Ringot was about. Weglinde (talk) 16:13, 19 September 2012 (UTC)

Veronica Whall[edit]

I'm interested in working on a small article right now and I see you've been working on the French war memorial articles. I thought I'd do a bit on Veronica Whall. Is that ok with you?--CaroleHenson (talk) 23:47, 30 September 2012 (UTC)

Yes that is fine. Please go ahead. I am working on improving Edgar Boutry.Weglinde (talk) 07:06, 1 October 2012 (UTC)
Ok, I finished what I could on Veronica's article - and worked on Edward Woore's article - but there are two pieces of information I cannot find: 1) information about his losing his sight and the specific medals he received (I could just see from the catalog record that he'd received medals in WWI) and 2) that he had taken over Parson's work. I can find a snipet that says he completed work for a cathedral in Cape Town - but there's not enough information in the snipet to be able to use it as a source.--CaroleHenson (talk) 15:25, 1 October 2012 (UTC)

Thank you. I shall see where I got the information about Edward Woore and let you know. Not sure what your plans are but I decided to revamp the articles on the Oise, Aisne, and Western and Eastern Somme. I needed to introduce citations and also make them less of a travelogue. I have completed the Oise and Aisne and would be very pleased if you wanted to look through them and make any changes. I shall do the same with the Western and Eastern Somme in due course. I also completed Bottiau and Robert Coin apart from Maurice Ringot which I believe you have already looked at. If you would cast your eye over Bottiau and Coin that would be super. There is of course no rush and I would only expect you to look at these when you are free and inclined to do so. I will continue to work on Boutry and let you know when he is done. Weglinde (talk) 16:07, 1 October 2012 (UTC)

In the exhibition catalogue for Christopher Whall 17th November 1979 to 3rd February 1980 there is a short note on Edward Woore and this includes "During the Great War he served in the army in France, and lost the sight of one eye......................" The catalogue fot the Karl Parsons exhibition includes the comment "After Karl Parsons' death, his friend Woore took over or completed a number of his commissions, including the north transept windows at Cape Town Cathedral...........................". I shall add a suitable tag to the Woore article and thank you for pointing out the omission.

As for the medals I must have accessed the medal card at The National Archives in Kew so I will try to find the link.

Just for the record I have just finished Edgar-Henri Boutry. Please feel free to have a look when you have some spare time. I am now moving on to Lucien Brasseur.

Charles Desvergnes[edit]

My apologies. However, you have touched on an important point. I saw that the article had been worked on by Weglinde and that it was under construction. But as you rightly state, your last edit was under an IP address and it showed blanking of text and repeating characters. In hindsight, and with your statement that it was you who made the changes, I can see it was part of your revisions. But before you conclude that my reversion was nonsense, consider the circumstances. How was I to discern that your edit under an IP address, which appeared simply to delete material leaving repeating characters and incomplete sentences, was part of your revisions? I am sorry for the inconvenience and any upset, but you can, of course, get that version back - and I think upon reflection you will see that I had reasons for my action. Donner60 (talk) 08:58, 12 October 2012 (UTC)


Of course I understand the reason for your comment and I apologise that I flew of the handle! I was having a morning coffee at a local coffee house and working on my reconstruction of the Desvergnes article. I had decided to rewrite the first section but was doing so on my i-pad which infuriatingly will not let me cut and paste. I therefore left gaps until I would be back home and on my laptop. Minutes after I had finished your edit came up and I got a bit annoyed. However I was the one at fault as I should have logged in and I was also wrong to fly off the handle at someone who was only doing their job and to whom the re-write must have looked a bit odd. I can only ask you to accept my apologies. I must remember to log in next time.

Weglinde (talk) 14:50, 12 October 2012 (UTC)

I understand completely. I took a glance at your user page and contributions. I see that you have made many wonderful contributions to Wikipedia and written many articles for which I congratulate and commend you. Frankly, my first reaction probably would have been the same as yours under the circumstances. I do not do much "recent page patrolling" but when I do, I look only at changes made by users contributing through IP addresses or new users with red link user pages. Some who sign on to vandalize are not very clever and simply post obscenities which the bots usually catch immediately. Others have become more sophisticated in the hopes of not getting caught. In the few times I have looked at these changes, I have seen dozens of instances of vandalism from IP address users that were not caught by bots within short periods of time. It is sad really that these people, many of whom I suspect are merely boys, have nothing better to do. Blanking text is one of their methods. I suppose that it is likely that those who take a look at this and take action to correct it from time to time will make a mistake. I am sorry this was one of those instances. I am glad that you understand my reason and that is enough. No apology needed. Good luck with your Desvergnes article and thanks for your contributions. Donner60 (talk) 20:26, 12 October 2012 (UTC)

List of World War I memorials and cemeteries in the Somme[edit]

This is an automated message from MadmanBot. I have performed a search with the contents of List of World War I memorials and cemeteries in the Somme, and it appears to be very similar to another Wikipedia page: List of World War I memorials and cemeteries in Artois. It is possible that you have accidentally duplicated contents, or made an error while creating the page— you might want to look at the pages and see if that is the case. If you are intentionally trying to rename an article, please see Help:Moving a page for instructions on how to do this without copying and pasting. If you are trying to move or copy content from one article to a different one, please see Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia and be sure you have acknowledged the duplication of material in an edit summary to preserve attribution history.

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. MadmanBot (talk) 13:44, 17 January 2013 (UTC)

Re: List_of_World_War_I_memorials_and_cemeteries_in_Champagne-Ardennes[edit]

Both of the names you mentioned, with punctuation fixed:

...are available and you don't need administrator intervention to move a page there.

I would however advise that you don't make arbitrary splits like that, unless there's actually an outside reliable source that makes such a distinction. The core of the referencing problem is that you have huge amounts of text that are unreferenced. The size of the article can be reduced not only by splitting the list, but also by moving individual items to individual articles. For example, you can create a new article called Memorial to the First Battle of the Marne at Mondemont and move those 10+ paragraphs there. If you don't think such individual monument articles will be notable enough standalone, another logical alternative is to create a subsection called Monuments within the article First Battle of the Marne and put that text there.

Really, this article isn't a list. If you split the detailed content elsewhere, then it will actually be just a list. --Joy [shallot] (talk) 08:22, 11 February 2013 (UTC)

The works of Ligier Richier[edit]

I came across your article "The works of Ligier Richier" due to a small misspelling.
You obviously know a lot about Ligier Richier, but the writing style of this article, is very much an academic essay, rather than an encyclopedia article. You have repeatedly used the possessive "we" and phrases such as "This article quotes extensively, but hopefully not overly so.."; these are what Wikipecia considers to be an essay-style.
I started to remove some of this phraseology, but, not knowing much about Ligier Richier decided to tag it as an essay. Arjayay (talk) 15:22, 13 April 2013 (UTC)

Memorial tablets by Reginald Hallward[edit]

Hi there. I recently wrote an article on the memorial tablets made by Reginald Hallward for the Imperial War Graves Commission, see: Memorial tablets to the British Empire dead of the First World War. That article on the memorial tablets expands on material that I think you added to Works of Reginald Hallward. I've added a link from the 'Works' article to the memorial tablets article, and I've also added a picture to the 'Works' articles. The section there on the memorial tablets is sourced to a CWGC information sheet: ISC2-01/92. Would you still have a copy of that, or would you be able to advise on the best way to get hold of a copy of that or any other relevant sources relating to these memorial tablets?

Injalbert[edit]

At least one of your added links to the works of Injalbert causes my PC protection to raise warnings. I suggest you go back and look again at how you are linking. Bear in mind, that links to pages within the English Wikipedia should go under a "See also" subhead as they are not external links - it is sufficient to simply put the name of the linked page within double square brackets, i.e. [[Listing of the work of Jean Antoine Injalbert-French sculptor]]. In the meantime, I have deleted the external links you have put in various articles. Emeraude (talk) 08:52, 18 December 2013 (UTC)

That's fine. I would have done it myself if I'd had time to sort it out. Could I suggest you change the name of the page to something shorter, e.g. "List of sculptures by Injalbert?" Emeraude (talk) 08:52, 18 December 2013 (UTC)

List of works by Henri Chapu[edit]

Okay. I did two passes on it today. First was a simple reorganization into the list table format. Let me know what you think of that.

The second pass was copy edit work on the lead section, then on all the "notes" for each listing. You'll notice two major things in this area: first, I deleted most information about the subjects of the art, especially if they had their own pages, where I felt the link to that page should suffice. If they didn't have their own page, I left pertinent details; second, I deleted all the inscriptions, since they were in French, and this is the English version of Wikipedia. Also, I don't think the inscriptions add anything to this article.

Also, I reorganized the photos in the gallery by putting a couple that were in the gallery by their appropriate listings, and putting extra photos that were in the individual entries into the gallery. I also changed the language into Americanized English (whilst=while; centre=center; etc.)

I'm beginning to go through the third pass (and should finish it sometime in the next three days), focusing on the citations, and putting them in the proper format.

The last section, about the biography, I'm not sure what to do with it. I think the section should be deleted, and the source put in as an "Outside Link"

Look forward to your comments. Onel5969 (talk) 04:37, 7 February 2014 (UTC)

My goodness you have been busy! The article is certainly different now and I can see no fault in it and from an encyclopedic standpoint I can see why your version is more acceptable than mine. You are to be congratulated. For future articles I shall try to use your model as my template. Guess you are correct on the inscriptions not really adding anything. Also agree that with a decent link there is no need to add too much detail. My approach was to give my own summary which might be sufficient for the reader without them going to the link especially as many links are to web pages in French. I know that there are computer driven translation services available but some of these are quite poor. To conclude then I think what you have done is super. There is just one thing that I am having difficulty with and that involves the citation. I did put a question on your talk page. I use the format but sometimes this works but other times it does not. Am I doing something wrong? Weglinde (talk) 08:24, 7 February 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for your input. Regarding citations, I had answered you on my page, but I'll put it here as well. If URLs in citation template parameters contain certain characters, then they will not display and link correctly. The format you used is good when you are citing a book, or other source that isn't a web link. To ensure it always works.
That's if you're putting it in as reference, not a simple link. If you want to insert a simple link, it should be Link to Louvre Whatever text you put after the webpage link, but within the brackets will be what is displayed. Hope this helps.
You can also go in and look at the changes I made on the first 5 or so reference citations on the Mathu list.

This is all most helpful and I guess you have covered all the queries I may have. Thank you again and top marks for what you have done!!

No worries. Glad I could be of assistance. It's done now. One other thing, here's a link to a page which I've found very useful regarding citations: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Citation_templates
Hope I've been of some help. Take care, and don't hesitate to ask if you have any other questions. If I can help, I'll try. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Onel5969 (talkcontribs) 13:26, 8 February 2014 (UTC)

You have been of great help. I am currently working on a list of the works of Francois Rude (see my sandbox). I am doing it in my old format but before I put it on wikipedia I will try to convert it to the format you have used for Henri Chapu. When I have done this I will take the liberty of sending you the link. Hopefully you will then see that your work on Chapu has not been in vain. Thank you again. It is always a pleasure to learn from somebody who knows what they are doing. Note people often awarded stars but not sure how to do this so I can only award you the "Star of Henri Chapu". Incidentally hope you learned something about Chapu and like his work

cite web template[edit]

Could you please not add extra material in the url field. Only the URL goes into that field. Don't add publisher info in the title field, this is what the publisher or work field is for. See {{web cite}} for more information. Also, you cannot use Wikipedia as a reference. Bgwhite (talk) 07:32, 4 March 2014 (UTC)


I'm back again. I just edited List of works of Louis-Ernest Barrias.

  1. You don't have to put scope="row" or scope"col" in tables as it serves no purpose.
  2. Reference section goes before external links.
  3. External links cannot contain references. It can contain citation templates.
  4. I removed alot of the categories as the applied to Barrias the person and not to the article itself.... "List of works" didn't die and wasn't born. Hmmm, that is like my mother-in-law because she wasn't born. She was spawned by the Devil.

hi nice work, i saw your work at Paul Dubois (sculptor), where you made a bio article more of a list. i kinda prefer how yoĝu did it at List of works by Eugène Guillaume (list split from bio article). also you might want to check out the list article format such as at List of public art in Baltimore. it looks better to me than your format, is machine readable, and has a field for gps, which might have some mobile utility.

Claude Grange[edit]

sorry, i missed your message. also, i am not an admin, (rather more of an anti-admin) there are lots of blacklisted sites around, and most white-list requests are ignored. love the article, i would suggest making public art articles on each sculpture, for example you seem to have enough there to split off a "Mémorial de la France combattante" article. an example here: Korean War Veterans Memorial, or District of Columbia War Memorial. the centered photos work on mobile, but the style guide prefers right and then left aligned to flow text around (desktop centric). you need more book or catalogue raisonné references. cheers.

sorry for being brusk with you there. we advise not to go to wp:AfC, rather put rough drafts in User:Weglinde/sandbox (which I see you are doing); find some help at wp:teahouse or at an editathon, or someone nice like user:gobonobo. btw, your user page is a place, to tell something about yourself, languages, etc., especially if you have a wp:COI; for example: user:sarasays.

Hello Weglinde- Please don't simply add links to Georges Saupique in articles without providing any context or edit summary. I have reverted some of those edits. If you think a given article warrants having a mention of Saupique, write a sentence explaining that. Eric talk 16:34, 9 November 2014 (UTC)

Yes, you provided context, which is good. But the "See also" section of a city/town article is not really the place to list its works of art.

Antoine Bourdelle[edit]

Dear Weglinde. Please see the discussion at Talk:Antoine Bourdelle regarding your modifications of the Antoine Bourdelle article. I've reverted to an older version. Large modifications and restructuring of the type you've embarked upon need to be discussed first. While some of the content you've included recently will likely be placed back in the article, much of it, such as huge blocks of lists of works, etc, need their own articles. Let's discuss. Coldcreation (talk) 11:40, 7 December 2014 (UTC)

I am most unhappy that my work has effectively been withdrawn. On reflection my article might have been better titled ""Works of Antoine Bourdelle". As things now stand all the research information I added has been lost to any one who wants to be better acquainted with Bourdelle's work. If someone would like to rename my article "Works of Antoine Bourdelle" that would be fine. If not leave as is but feel much has been lost!

Weglinde (talk) 13:42, 7 December 2014 (UTC)

Dear Weglinde, the article as it was could not remain in that state. But all is not lost; quite the contrary. List of works by Antoine Bourdelle is an excellent title for a new article to included the works on your list, amongst other works as well. See for example List of works by Leonardo da Vinci, List of works by Henri Matisse or List of sculptures by Tony Smith. Some of your text, too, can be reintroduced into the Antoine Bourdelle article, or in the new List of works article. However, make sure you provide inline citations, sources or references. Thanks for your work, and thanks in advance for collaborating on a new article about the sculptors work. Coldcreation (talk) 16:21, 7 December 2014 (UTC)
P.S. If you need any help getting it started I would be glad to help out. Coldcreation (talk) 16:32, 7 December 2014 (UTC)
It appears that most of your text was derived form Emile Antoine Bourdelle by Peter Cannon-Brookes. Trefoil Books Ltd. ISBN 0 86294 039 7. Is that correct? Coldcreation (talk) 16:49, 7 December 2014 (UTC)

Works of Author articles[edit]

Hi Weglinde. I see that you have created several articles with titles of the form Works of Author. Since most of them are lists, I would like to propose renaming them so their titles are of the form List of works by Author. This would bring them in line with the Manual of Style, which describes beginning list titles with "List of" as "standard practice". Let me know what your thoughts are. Thanks, A Thousand Doors (talk | contribs) 00:25, 1 February 2015 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Category:Parish enclosures in Brittany[edit]

A tag has been placed on Category:Parish enclosures in Brittany requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia.

'Translated' article[edit]

Sorry, as a layman I had trouble understanding it. Please don't take it personally or feel insulted. {{Huddsblue (talk) 12:56, 5 April 2015 (UTC)}}

Frankly I have taken it personally rightly or wrongly and have felt quite depressed today. I am in my mid seventies and enjoy writing articles for wikipedia. Recently I have tackled the calvaries and enclosures of Brittany really to bring them to the notice of a wider audience. The French of course know them well but I had in mind an English speaking reader. I have now written over twenty five articles in the series and although I do not expect a prize for English Literature I was mortified to find that they were read and thought not to be by an Englishman. I have no claims either to be a French scholar but have tried my best to make my translations accurate but repeat that in any case this is NOT a translated article. Much of my information was of course taken from French texts but I repeat the piece was written in English. I had intended to try to cover all the calvaries and enclosures in Brittany but will retreat for a while and reconsider any further wiki work. Please understand that you are of course entitled to comment as you see fit but I just found it hurtful. Perhaps someone else will read this and explain where my English was clumsy, so clumsy in fact that it was taken as a translation.
Weglinde (talk) 17:22, 5 April 2015 (UTC)
Hello Weglinde, I much liked your article, but every article could use some corrections. It could well be that your corrector is not British himself, he could be American or from someplace where another variant of English is spoken - or just much younger than you and I. Also, he himself doesn't have much Wiki experience, if you take a look at his talk page. You are here since 2009, he since 2014. However, to me he seems to be a friendly fellow with a penchant for mountains.
Naturally, you inserted some French terms in the article that could be translated (for instance, 'arc de triomphe' is triumphal arch with an article on Wikipedia). It's a pity you feel depressed, you shouldn't be. It's a nice article about a stunning work of Breton art with fantastic photos. Also, it's an original article, whereas Huddsblue and I are just correctors, that's the easiest thing, commenting and letting one's red pencil wander over someone else's creative work. I wrote this article today (my first English wiki piece in years), Huddsblue found it and corrected it, which I'm glad of, feeling always unsure about what's not my mother's tongue. Glatisant (talk) 20:40, 5 April 2015 (UTC)

How kind of you Glatisant to take the trouble to comment and your comments were certainly a tonic! Perhaps I was in any case feeling a little low when Huddsblue's comments arrived-I have a lot of personal problems at present! Anyway I shall take your comments on board and persevere with further articles on Brittany. Thank you very much. Weglinde (talk) 12:04, 6 April 2015 (UTC)

Ways to improve Lanneufret Parish close[edit]

Hi, I'm Aricooperdavis. Weglinde, thanks for creating Lanneufret Parish close!

I've just tagged the page, using our page curation tools, as having some issues to fix. I would recommend condensing these into one section; or otherwise condensing considerably. This is incredibly detailed.

The tags can be removed by you or another editor once the issues they mention are addressed. If you have questions, you can leave a comment on my talk page. Or, for more editing help, talk to the volunteers at the Teahouse. aricooperdavis (talk) 01:05, 24 April 2015 (UTC)

Hi, I just came across this page, and made some further changes. "Miscellaneous" is not a good heading so I moved that section to the end and changed its heading to "Other architectural features".
The article needs an introduction to give context. You had not even linked the article to "parish close"; I have done that, but the page should be self-explanatory without having to refer to other pages to find out what a parish close is.
This seems to be part of a large set of articles, which may all need similar improvements. – Fayenatic London 11:32, 22 June 2015 (UTC)

May 2015[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm PamD. I wanted to let you know that I undid one or more of your recent contributions to Guimiliau Parish close because it did not appear constructive. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks. PamD 17:55, 12 May 2015 (UTC)

  • Looking further... I'm puzzled. Has someone else been messing with the article under your username? The edit I reverted was totally uncharacteristic and you wouldn't vandalise an article you'd started. PamD 18:01, 12 May 2015 (UTC)

As you say PamD I would hardly vandalise an article I have written myself. I will keep an eye on my articles in case someone is up to mischief. I appreciate your intervention. I have written several entries in the last few months on Brittany's "enclos paroissiaux" and her main calvaries. I have been concentrating on Finistere. Frankly I have taken the subject as far as I wish and have also created some entries on Breton sculptors. Now that I have finished I have been going through each enclos paroissial entry to correct any spelling errors and improve punctuation as I am using Pediapress to collate the articles into a book (just for my own library-I have no pretentions that the entries are anything special) and did not wish any "howlers" to be given any further mileage. The changes on Guimiliau Parish close do appear odd so I am grateful that you have reversed them. I have a few more articles to go through and then will have finished my current activity on Wikipedia. Thanks again. Weglinde (talk) 20:43, 12 May 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for the thanks, but I'm thinking we need 'thinks'  :)[edit]

Regarding my change, I began to wonder whether what I was doing was the correct thing], so I asked a question of the 'style'-police. So of course they answered with a question!  ;-P Can you take a look and see what you think?

Somewhat related, I recently found a bunch of occurrences where people accidentally used lower-case 'l' (ell) instead of upper-case 'I' (eye), like 'lnitial' vs. 'Initial'. I found one place where it was obvious that an automated text scanner had converted an 'i' into an 'l' (ell). I would think it was possible for a similar problem to happen, converting '1st' to 'lst' or even 'Ist'. Seeing these makes me re-read everything I copy from! Shenme (talk) 23:24, 15 May 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for your efforts. I think we will leave your change as it is. So thanks remains Weglinde (talk) 08:46, 16 May 2015 (UTC)
