Regarding Dr. Catherine Hamlin[edit]

Thank you for your fine work on the Catherine Hamlin article. You probably know more about this than I do, but just as an FYI.... I don't know what is going on with that Fistula Foundation versus Dr. and Dr. Hamlins' original fistula hospital in Addis Abba. I'm not going to try to dig around, as I'm not on a job assignment doing an accounting forensics audit! But it seemed like Catherine's husband passed away, and then some man and his daughter from the U.S.A. arrived and claimed to be supporting the Hamlin Fistula Hospital, along with dozens of others all over the world! But with a very minimal budget. And a good-sized chunk of it is going to the executive director, now ex officio of the Fistulafoundation dot org, Ms. Kate, who also happens to have written the WP article for the Fistula Foundation.

So truly, I mostly wanted to say hello. I left a note on the Catherine Hamlin talk page for you, resolving the comment allegation of plagiarism. The link cited is a 404 error not found page, now, so there is no plagiarism! I also like Circe, the sculpture and myth, as well as periodic table. This is not a request for any action on your part! Merely a thank you, and me as a new sort, trying in my awkward way to interact with others on Wikipedia. --FeralOink (talk) 13:58, 3 April 2012 (UTC)

Margaret Whitlam and memorial service[edit]

Hi. In a recent edit of Margaret Whitlam you included the following, "At the sermon given by the Reverend Andrew Sempell, the readings were from Isaiah 43:1-5 & 1 Corinthians 13." Whilst this information is interesting trivia, I feel that it does little to enhance the article. Is there a special ink between the passages of scripture and Mrs Whitlam? If not, may I suggest you remove it. If there is some special relevance, would you please spell it out in the article, together with references? I thought it better to raise with you here, instead of the talk page of the article. Please let me know your thoughts. Cheers and Happy Easter. Rangasyd (talk) 12:07, 5 April 2012 (UTC)

Hi Rangasyd, Thanks for your attention to the article. I was trying to add the link to the sermon in case any future reader wanted it but being in a hurry I did not have time to elaborate. I have now added a bit more context and hope that is enough to make the reference more useful. Whiteghost.ink 01:01, 6 April 2012 (UTC)
Thanks Whiteghost. Another option, instead of converting it into prose in the body of the article, is to provide a link to the sermon under the External links section. This is especially useful if the information is not crucial for the average reader. Yet, if they're interested, and it provides a link for them to read further. Cheers and keep up the great editing.

Can you verify?[edit]

Hi Whiteghost.ink. Here on January 9, 2012 you made an interesting edit to the Astral Weeks article, which is currently being reviewed for a GA article. The reviewer has asked for direct attribution for the quote. Although, from your edit summary, I believe that the quote is by the author, Andrew Ford, as I don't have access to the book, will you verify this by making an addition to your edit in the article, such as: According to music historian, Andrew Ford. Thanks so much for your help and for your edit! Agadant (talk) 23:14, 7 May 2012 (UTC)

Done! If you search Google books you can find page 164 of Illegal Harmonies and read it yourself. Added two of Ford's books to the references list as well. Good luck with it! Whiteghost.ink (talk) 00:09, 8 May 2012 (UTC)

Follow up on gendergap list[edit]

Hi Whiteghost.ink

Just a note without sending it out on the list - to let you know when I made suggestions, the gendergap item was not yet posted (to my knowledge). I think Sara put it up, supporting a simple statement. I wasn't aware of the list' list, and tossed in an idea. Whether the description is general or more specific, it is good if it is there now. Best, KSRolph (talk) 01:08, 13 May 2012 (UTC)

I knew it was a suggestion but I only found Sarah's response after I sent mine. I think I must have been scrolling wrongly. Sorry. Haven't completely mastered lists and lists of lists. Whiteghost.ink (talk) 01:28, 13 May 2012 (UTC)

Addition to circumcision[edit]

Hello. I reverted your addition to the "Positions of medical associations" section because it isn't the position of a medical association per se. We might be able to make better use of the source in the article, though; can I suggest raising the issue at the article's talk page? Best wishes, Jakew (talk) 13:01, 13 May 2012 (UTC)

Could you put it where you think it would be helpful? I thought it was an accessible and reliable reference that could be a useful addition to the topic, especially the policy angle, which being part of a national medical context is why it was placed in the country-specific section. However, I am trying to get some other (much less controversial) articles written from scratch and this argument, while important, is outside my main areas of activity. Thanks for your help and oversight. Whiteghost.ink (talk) 01:10, 14 May 2012 (UTC)

War artists[edit]

Hi,

Following on from your post on the WWI editathon page, you might want to talk to Mr impossible (talk · contribs) - he's been digitising a substantial amount of WWII war art from the National Archives collections. I don't know how their collections stand with regard to WWI art, but there may well be something useful for you in there.

I've done a bit of writing in the past on official photographers (eg/ Ernest Brooks), who fall between two stools - some were recruited as individuals, some were just "soldiers given a camera". I'm never quite sure whether to class them as "war artists" or not...

As to a list of artists killed, I suspect that various artistic societies and organisations did compile such lists during the immediate post-war period, but finding copies of them and collating them might be an interesting problem. Andrew Gray (talk) 09:50, 24 May 2012 (UTC)

I would be interested in working on this - do you know what books are good? I don't think the NA has much at all on WWI, but check with Mr Impossible - and check out the "unknown artists" bit on his NA website too. Johnbod (talk) 15:12, 24 May 2012 (UTC)
I see I'm late to the party. Glad you're interested in the Editathon! What we're doing is very much about GLAM-Wiki interaction - it so happens this event is about building links with academics, but it fits into a bigger picture, and I am hoping for a range of different Wikimedia UK activities over the coming year. Other people have mentioned Mr Impossible, who is coming along to the event as well, I wonder if you can discuss things virtually. Feel free to drop me an email on chris.keating at wikimedia.org.uk if you want to discuss what we're doing further. Many thanks, The Land (talk) 12:37, 27 May 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for the feedback and ideas. I would like to participate virtually in this opportunity to use the resources and expertise the Edit-a-thon will make available. We have sources here, for example, for Arthur Streeton but for this Edit-a-Thon it would make sense to use yours. As I said, I would particularly like to get an article going on the policy shift that was made as a result of WWI (not sure whether it was during or after) whereby artists were henceforward given some duties other than front-line combat. Not sure where to start with this though - it was, if I recall, a British policy shift (Churchill comes to mind, although that recollection might be wrong). It may have been a shift that took place during the war and was perhaps connected with the creation of British official war artists in which case, the WWI section of that article, could be developed and/or broken out. The "Official" war artists were different from artists who just had a camera. And anyway, war photographers are a different list and probably a different set of articles. WP already has short articles on British, Australian, Canadian, German and American and Japanese war artists.
The list of artists killed might develop from work on the war artists. As well as British ones, there are well known artists killed from other belligerents in WWI, among them the German Franz Marc, and arguably, the Austrian Egon Schiele.
Does this sound possible/appealing/the right way forward? Whiteghost.ink (talk) 01:41, 28 May 2012 (UTC)
Yes, I suppose. The time difference will be tricky for you, no? I don't think we will have any resources we haven't ordered in advance, but British official war artists & the Oz equivalent can certainly be improved from near-stubs. I'm not sure the experts present have specific expertise in this area - we'll see. Johnbod (talk) 13:36, 28 May 2012 (UTC)
Unfortunately unlike WW2, almost no files from the WWI Ministry of Information (or predecessors) survive here at TNA and we don't have the same collection of posters/artworks, which have all gone to the IWM. (Hence the reason we're not doing that project!) My trusty copy of Ian Beckett gives hardly any useful files. We may have a little on Muirhead Bone. That said, I'm very happy to go digging to see what we can turn up. INF 4 is very thin but there must be something of use on the Pictorial Section and the reasons for setting it up. T 1/12216 may just possibly contain a full list of artists. --Mr impossible (talk) 15:02, 28 May 2012 (UTC)
Aha. Yes, the file does contain a useful list of names and helps to understand the schemes (by the Ministry of Information and separately by the Imperial War Museum) a little better. It's not so good on the 1916-7 period. Where's a good place for me to start typing up this information? --Mr impossible (talk) 17:21, 31 May 2012 (UTC)
Excellent! We might able to develop WWI articles from these perspectives! I have created a WWI art drafts page so we can put text there and work on it. Meanwhile, I have found a published photo of Arthur Streeton in uniform with his family taken in London in 1918 by photographer Lena Connell. He was commissioned Honorary-Lieutenant Official War Artist in 1918 and attached to the 2nd Division A.I.F. receiving his movement order on 8th May 1918. He went to France and worked there till October 1918 with a break in August. So this photo was probably taken in May or possibly August. The photo is in a book on Streeton and it contained no other attribution. Do you know if it would be findable and capable of being digitised? It's a studio portrait and should be out of copyright and would be great in the war artist part of his bio or other places. Whiteghost.ink (talk) 04:13, 1 June 2012 (UTC)
I was about to offer to dig it out and make a copy, but Lena Connell died 1949, so it's problematic - it might be PD in the US under the pre-1923 rule, if the book was published soon after the war, but not in the UK under the life+70 rule - so Wikipedia can host it but I can't copy it! (It would be PD in Australia, I think, but I'm not sure Australian rules would apply in this case - a UK photographer working in London for an Australian client. agh, baffling...) For the moment, would commons:File:Arthur Streeton portrait (George Lambert).jpg do? It's a portrait not a photograph, but he's definitely in uniform... Andrew Gray (talk) 10:51, 1 June 2012 (UTC)
Great! The painting would be good, especially as it's a Lambert, although the family photo was possibly better for a bio as I have not seen many photos of uniformed WWI soldiers with their wife and children. In fact, I just updated Streeton's article with the information about his being made Official War artist after the earlier appointment in the Royal Army medical Corps. The Connell photograph is in a book first published early 1970s. I didn't know Connell was an English photographer although that makes sense, given that the photo was taken in London. The copyright sure is complicated! I take it we can use the Lambert? Whiteghost.ink (talk) 12:52, 1 June 2012 (UTC)
The Lambert is copyright-impeccable, so we can definitely use it :-) Andrew Gray (talk) 12:59, 1 June 2012 (UTC)

Hi, nice work!

Oh BTW, I also created Category:Compositions by Cécile Chaminade for your new article. Another awesome transcription for flute that's well worth checking out is James Galway's reworking of Rodrigo's Fantasia para un Gentilhombre. Graham87 09:15, 10 October 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for October 16[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Entertainment, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Balls (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.

Entertainment is still TAFI[edit]

Apparently you did not realize that an article remains a TAFI for a full week. I have added the template back on Entertainment since it still has several days left. Don't worry though, you've done very well on the article. It looks much, much better. AutomaticStrikeout 02:46, 17 October 2012 (UTC)

Now that Entertainment is no longer the TAFI, the next step following the improvements made is to nominate the article for good article status. Before such a nomination has been made, a few concerns have been raised here. I am letting you know as you did the majority of the work and would get most of the credit if the article became considered a good article. AutomaticStrikeout 00:05, 21 October 2012 (UTC)

Don't you see yourself as Kiwi?

Um ... no, my family has been in Australia for five generations. I have made a couple of lovely visits to New Zealand though. Whiteghost.ink (talk) 06:39, 29 October 2012 (UTC)

I thought you were born in NZ, but I'm assuming you are EF. Maybe I got it wrong. Sardaka (talk) 06:46, 29 October 2012 (UTC)

No, no connection. I just wrote her article. Whiteghost.ink (talk) 07:02, 29 October 2012 (UTC)

I guess I was assuming she uploaded her photo, but apparently not. How did you get hold of it? Anyway, about her nationality, wasn't she born in NZ?Sardaka (talk) 07:06, 29 October 2012 (UTC)

I asked for it. Yes, I think she was. Whiteghost.ink (talk) 08:09, 29 October 2012 (UTC)

Yes, have just checked Blubberland, where it says she trained as an architect in Auckland, so how about I change what's in the article, with the Blubberland ref?Sardaka (talk) 08:42, 29 October 2012 (UTC)

I am checking it. Hope to hear soon which is correct.Whiteghost.ink (talk) 04:06, 30 October 2012 (UTC)
I have updated EMF's article with correct information: she became an Australian citizen in 1991. Whiteghost.ink (talk) 06:59, 30 October 2012 (UTC)

Templates[edit]

Hey there Whiteghost, during the last meetup I attended all those months ago you mentioned you wanted help with templates, did you still need any assistance? James (TalkContribs) • 4:13pm 05:13, 30 October 2012 (UTC)

Thanks very much M.O.X for this kind offer.

Yes, I have some questions, specifically, advice on image galleries. When there are quite a few images in the gallery, is it possible to tell the template how many rows you want and how many to display in each? For example, In the article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Children%27s_Chapel,_St_James%27_Church,_Sydney you can see there are seven images in the gallery section. I was forced to create two sequential galleries with four and three images because when I had only the one template it displayed six images on the first line and two on the second.

I now have a gallery with eight images and the software insists on displaying this as two uneven rows with five and three images respectively. I would like to be able to ensure that I have two even rows of four images. Other than creating two sequential galleries is there a way of doing this, within the template syntax?

Wiki-beer/cider[edit]

not sure if this is the right place but I'll just post it here anyway and you can correct me or hopefully show me how to post properly in the right place in future. Thanks for the free beer but I only drink cider. Do they have free wiki cider???
