Season's Greetings[edit]

CMR Xmas greeting.jpg
Wishing you a Charlie Brown
Charlie Russell Christmas! 🎄
Best wishes for your Christmas
Is all you get from me
'Cause I ain't no Santa Claus
Don't own no Christmas tree.
But if wishes was health and money
I'd fill your buck-skin poke
Your doctor would go hungry
An' you never would be broke."
—C.M. Russell, Christmas greeting 1914.

There's a broken bracket in the article. I don't know where the closing bracket would go. It's at ,{{efn|In one of which Secretary Knox was said to be a major ... Bgwhite (talk) 22:24, 2 February 2016 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for February 3[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited William Howard Taft, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Robert M. La Follette and Joseph Cannon (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.

School of Rock (musical)[edit]

Hi, I am wondering if you would be able to help me out again. I am looking for someone to do a peer review on the above if you are up for it. I know you helped me before, but I also need help with expanding the lead and doing a critical reception section. I can batter away with, ffh other improvements but I'm useless at critical reception.Blethering Scot 18:03, 7 February 2016 (UTC)

I'll take a look but am away from home until Tuesday week so it may take time.--Wehwalt (talk) 18:06, 7 February 2016 (UTC)

Hope you are well. Ive been meaning to ask you for ages, so it can wait with no issue. I have added most if not all the sources that would be needed for a critical reception section in the article already and they are hidden under the Principal roles and original cast section.Blethering Scot 18:12, 7 February 2016 (UTC)
Quite well hope you are the same. I'll work something up and look for other useful sources.--Wehwalt (talk) 18:43, 7 February 2016 (UTC)
Im good. Just working away. Thanks in advance.Blethering Scot 19:46, 9 February 2016 (UTC)
Would you mind looking at Our Ladies of Perpetual Succour. Its very much a work in progress as have loads to add. Would you mind doing the critical reception section. To be honest I would prefer this to School of Rock if you don't have time to do both.Blethering Scot 01:58, 14 February 2016 (UTC)
OK, it will probably be Wednesday or Thursday before I look at either.--Wehwalt (talk) 03:37, 14 February 2016 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Today's featured article/February 29, 2016[edit]

Wehwalt and FriendlyRiverOtter, I'll get to this one today. Let me know how it looks. It's great to have such an interesting and well-written law article at TFA. - Dank (push to talk) 17:14, 9 February 2016 (UTC)

Dank, it hasn't deteriorated since it got to be FA. I meant it as an example of how a Supreme Court case should be written but I'm not sure it's helped. I plan on others but right now I am up to my ears in Taft.--Wehwalt (talk) 20:30, 9 February 2016 (UTC)

Could you kindly use your admin bit...[edit]

And move Adam de Port (d. 1133) to Adam de Port (d. c. 1133) - someone came along while I was working on the page and decided I didn't know what I was doing and insisted on moving it to Adam de Port because there were no other articles (yet) for Adam de Port... well, there will be - I just figured I'd work on them in order ... I guess I know nothing. Ealdgyth - Talk 14:51, 10 February 2016 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) @Ealdgyth: Done. :-) Ed [talk] [majestic titan] 17:12, 10 February 2016 (UTC)
Thanks! And thanks Wehwalt for allowing the hosting of this... Ealdgyth - Talk 17:30, 10 February 2016 (UTC)
Thanks to all. Good to hear from you, Ealdgyth and thanks to The ed17. Guess I'm slow on the draw.--Wehwalt (talk) 20:20, 10 February 2016 (UTC)

Monroe Edwards[edit]

Glad to see your comments at Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/Monroe Edwards/archive1. While it's fresh on your mind, could you look at and, if appropriate, comment on some of the issues I left unstruck in my comments? I don't plan to oppose based on any of them, but I would like to hear what another experienced editor thinks. And don't be afraid to tell me I'm wrong; believe me, I've heard it before! :) Acdixon (talk · contribs) 15:41, 12 February 2016 (UTC)

Certainly, I will look them over. Hope you're doing well.--Wehwalt (talk) 09:32, 13 February 2016 (UTC)

Michael Hordern[edit]

Hello Wehwalt, well it's been a hard slog, but I have finally managed to drag a certain actor into FAC here. I would, of course, be most in debt for any comments you may have, if you have the time. Hope you're well. CassiantoTalk 17:48, 13 February 2016 (UTC)

Yes, I'll be happy to review it.--Wehwalt (talk) 18:00, 13 February 2016 (UTC)

Scalia portrait[edit]

Is this file also taken by a professional photographer then transferred the copyright to the Federal Government? commons:File:Antonin Scalia official SCOTUS portrait.jpg Ueutyi (talk) 04:28, 14 February 2016 (UTC)

I believe so. I think this is the Mollie Isaacs one. The one that was there online I believe was Scalia's former official portrait. It's been a few years since I dealt with this so you may want to check online.--Wehwalt (talk) 04:32, 14 February 2016 (UTC)
You noted that the statement applies to Scalia's 1986 portrait, but this one is from 2005. How did you confirm with the SCOTUS, by e-mail or something? I do find Scalia's current article portrait ambiguous. Ueutyi (talk) 04:53, 14 February 2016 (UTC)
The Isaacs is the 2005 one. I did have email contact with the Supreme Court, regrettably this is five or six years ago and I no longer have the correspondence, but certainly info on the Isaacs image is out there on the web. For one thing, it's the front cover of Biskupic's book. What seems to be done is that the court (or an outside party) spends the money to hire a private photographer, and the government gets the copyright. Mollie Isaacs is certainly not a federal employee, for one thing.--Wehwalt (talk) 05:06, 14 February 2016 (UTC)
I wrote an e-mail to SCOTUS "contact us" online, I don't know if they would reply, but let's see. Also, if we can't use the Scalia one, can we still use other ones? Ueutyi (talk) 07:22, 14 February 2016 (UTC)
The one I put up is a crop from the group portrait. Those are freely usable. You might do better to contact the Supreme Court Historical Society.--Wehwalt (talk) 09:02, 14 February 2016 (UTC)
