Hello I'm not sure if you're still active on Wikipedia, but I've been looking at the excellent article you wrote for the painting Netherlandish Proverbs. I think it would only take a very small amount of extra work to get it to GA standard and it seems a shame to leave it as-is. I'm happy to do the required work myself, but since the lion's share of the work has already been done by you, I wondered if you might like to collaborate on the last little bit? All the best! --Brigade Piron (talk) 13:46, 10 August 2013 (UTC)
- I'm not active much on en wp any more (having been persuaded by the arguments put forward by Mr Mortis and Google's active attempts to avoid showing the actual articles), but just for the record if anybody wants to improve anything I've worked on they won't get any arguments from me - of course, they equally won't get any arguments if they make it worse because I probably won't notice.

Hello, this is just a brief note to let you know (if you happen to log on between now and then) that Harry McNish will be appearing as Wikipedia:Today's featured article/September 11, 2013. Standard text follows, most of which is irrelevant if you're not here... If you prefer that the article appear as TFA on a different date, or not at all, please ask me. If the blurb needs tweaking, or if it needs rewording to match improvements to the article between now and its main page appearance, please edit it, following the instructions at Wikipedia:Today's featured article/requests/instructions. Congratulations on getting the article to FA, by the way, and I hope that the TFA appearance goes smoothly. Sorry for the late notification - you may have already spotted this news through your watchlist; the bot that was meant to tell you seems to have broken. (I'm also sorry that you weren't notified that McNish was under consideration at WP:TFAR - the instructions do say that you should have been. Oh well...)

Main Page appearance: Harry McNish
This is a note to let the main editors of Harry McNish know that the article will be appearing as today's featured article on September 11, 2013. If this article needs any attention or maintenance, it would be preferable if that could be done before its appearance on the Main Page. If you prefer that the article appear as TFA on a different date, or not at all, please ask Bencherlite (talk · contribs). You can view the TFA blurb at Wikipedia:Today's featured article/September 11, 2013. If it needs tweaking, or if it needs rewording to match improvements to the article between now and its main page appearance, please edit it, following the instructions at Wikipedia:Today's featured article/requests/instructions. The blurb as it stands now is below:
Harry McNish (1874–1930) was the carpenter on Sir Ernest Shackleton's Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition of 1914 to 1917. At 40, he was one of the oldest members of the crew and was regarded as somewhat odd and unrefined, but was highly respected as a carpenter. He was responsible for much of the work that ensured the crew's survival after their ship, the Endurance, was destroyed when it became trapped in pack ice in the Weddell Sea. He modified the small boat, James Caird, that allowed Shackleton and five men (including McNish) to make a voyage of hundreds of miles to fetch help for the rest of the crew. He briefly refused to follow orders on the crew's long trek pulling the boats across the pack ice, and, despite his efforts during the journey, was one of only four of the crew not to receive the Polar Medal. After the expedition he returned to work in the Merchant Navy and eventually emigrated to New Zealand, where he worked on the docks in Wellington until ill-health forced his retirement. He died destitute in the Ohiro Benevolent Home in Wellington. McNish Island, which lies in the approaches to King Haakon Bay, South Georgia, was named in his honour. (Full article...)
