Led Zeppelin

Some good work there Jade. I've been toying with the idea of adding a list of Led Zeppelin concerts and also a Led Zeppelin chronology. It is time consuming however. Jgm's opposition to a number of my edits in the past has also proved tiresome. Anyway hopefully it will evenetually become the best article on Led Zeppelin on the internet over time. Good luck.

Nigeria was never an aristocracy and so never had aristocrats[edit]

Sorry but you are wrong. Nigeria certainly does have aristocrats in it even though it is a republic because it has various royal familes, traditional rulers, kings, emirs and various Royal courts of chiefs and traditional title holders in the various regions throughout the country. Once somebody has been conferred with a chieftaincy title from any of the kings or if he or she comes from any of the royal families in Nigeria then that person is an aristocrat. Fani-Kayode is a member of the ruling class, a titled Chief from the Royal court of the Ooni ( King) of Ife and a blue-blooded member of the royal family of Ife where he and his family hail from. He is a member of the royal family and a member of the royal court at ife which is one of the most reverred courts in Nigeria. That makes him an aristocrat. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Tebsala (talkcontribs) 10:22, 1 September 2010 (UTC)

Sweet Home Alabama[edit]

I saw your comments on the talk page, please feel free to make edits to the article as you see fit. I agree that your explanations make more sense than what's currently in the article. Lachatdelarue (talk) 00:02, 14 Jun 2005 (UTC) I think I need to pay more attention to what's going on... great addition to the article. Thank you. Lachatdelarue (talk) 00:05, 14 Jun 2005 (UTC)

London Meetup - January 12, 2008[edit]

Hope to see you Saturday, Poeloq (talk) 02:14, 10 January 2008 (UTC)

Invitation to Wikipedia meetup in London[edit]

Wikimedia UK logo

Date: 13:00 onwards, Sunday 10 August 2008

Venue: Penderel's Oak pub, Holborn WC1 map

More information: Wikipedia:Meetup/London 12


Hello,

I noticed that you have listed yourself as a Wikipedian in London, so I thought you might like to come to one of our monthly social meetups. The next one is going to be on Sunday 10 August, which might well be rather short notice, but if you can't come this time, we try to have one every second Sunday of the month.

If you haven't been before, these meetups are mainly casual social events for Wikipedia enthusiasts in which we chat about Wikipedia and any other topics we fancy. It's a great way to meet some very keen Wikipedians, but we'd also love for you to come along if you're interested in finding out more about Wikipedia, other Wikimedia projects, or other collaborative wiki projects too.

The location is a pub that is quite quiet and family friendly on a Sunday lunchtime, so hopefully younger Wikipedians will also feel welcome and safe. Alcohol consumption is certainly not required!

Although the meetups are popular, many UK-based editors still don't know about them. It would be great to welcome some fresh faces, so I hope you can come along.

Yours,

James F. (talk) 09:27, 3 August 2008 (UTC)

Please forgive the slightly impersonal mass-invite!

Jaggs[edit]

It will be interesting to see your proof that William Jaggs is not a murderer. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.160.202.155 (talk) 10:44, 24 September 2008 (UTC) I agree with you about the nobility from Harrow School. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.160.202.155 (talk) 10:47, 24 September 2008 (UTC)

You are quite right. I stupidly over-looked the fact that Jaggs is still in
the "Others" section. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.163.174.49 (talk) 10:28, 29 September 2008 (UTC)

Degree-awarding power of Oxbridge colleges?[edit]

Hello. I posted a message here: Talk:University_College_London#.22.5BUCL.5D_is_a_fully_independent_university.22. I am not sure why you think that Oxbridge colleges - some of them at least - can award degrees. I'm happy to be proven wrong, but I should be surprised. Oxbridge colleges are listed bodies, so can offer courses leading to degrees, but they are not recognised bodies, so cannot award their own degrees like the large University of London colleges can. That is my understanding.--Oxonian2006 (talk) 22:23, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

[in case anyone's trying to follow the thread...] Hi, I'm afraid I've no rigorous proof of this... though there was a reference to it in The Times recently... but then journalists are certainly fallible. The article mentioned that there were a few colleges that had been granted the power to award degrees (possibly through having their own Charter?) but never used these powers. However, with no hard proof I won't swear by it or place it any Wiki articles. Presumably you attended Oxford?
I am not sure of the validity of the "Registered Bodies" link - for example it lists Goldsmiths College, though this is a constituent college of the University of London that cannot award its own degrees.--Zoso Jade (talk) 22:59, 14 October 2008 (UTC)
Retrieved from "http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:Oxonian2006"
Yes, I do have a BA from Oxford, several years ago now, so who knows what has changed! Of course, the colleges never would want to award their own degrees. For one thing, whereas there is conceivably a certain kudos perhaps in having a UCL, KCL, etc degree as opposed to a University of London one, there's never going to be extra prestige in being a BA (Balliol) as opposed to BA (Oxon). But more fundamentally, apart from the doctorate in clinical psychology, which is run entirely through one college, Harris Manchester, all the colleges offer the same degree - a kind of federal degree, in London terms.
I think Goldsmiths is on that list because it can award degrees, albeit not its own degress. Likewise SOAS. One is admitted to a degree of the University of London by the college, not the university. This may seem a nice distinction, but it is actually quite important. SOAS, for example, can award degrees. It is in that sense a university in its own right - it just doesn't award SOAS degrees, but University of London ones. On the other hand, if you study at RADA, which is a listed body, it seems, looking at its website, that the degree is validated by King's College London. SOAS or Goldsmiths needs no such validation because they are recognised bodies. I may have this horribly mangled, but I think I am more or less there. However, I shall look out with interest to see if Oxford colleges do get, or already have, any powers to award degrees - their own, or Oxford's. There has been some muted idea that colleges should hold their own graduation ceremonies (a stupid idea in my view), which would only be possible if the colleges were recognised bodies.--Oxonian2006 (talk) 00:57, 15 October 2008 (UTC)

Tax-payer[edit]

London Wikimedia Fundraiser[edit]

Good evening! This is a friendly message from Chase me ladies, I'm the Cavalry, inviting you to the London Wikimedia Fundraising party on 19th December 2010, in approximately one week. This party is being held at an artistic London venue with room for approximately 300 people, and is being funded by Ed Saperia, a non-Wikipedian who has a reputation for holding exclusive events all over London. This year, he wants to help Wikipedia, and is subsidising a charity event for us. We're keen to get as many Wikimedians coming as possible, and we already have approximately 200 guests, including members of the press, and some mystery guests! More details can be found at http://ten.wikipedia.org/wiki/London - expect an Eigenharp, a mulled wine hot tub, a free hog roast, a haybale amphitheatre and more. If you're interested in coming - and we'd love to have you - please go to the ten.wikipedia page and follow the link to the Facebook event. Signing up on Facebook will add you to the party guestlist. Entry fee is a heavily subsidised £5 and entry is restricted to over 18s. It promises to be a 10th birthday party to remember! If you have any questions, please email me at chasemewiki at gmail.com.

Hope we'll see you there, (and apologies for the talk page spam) - Chase me ladies, I'm the Cavalry (talk) 00:19, 13 December 2010 (UTC)
