A suggestion to include the correct pronunciation[edit]

A suggestion I shall like to put forth, if the correct pronunciation (a recorded voice) could be included of the matter in discussion, names etc. it would serve as a tremendous advantage. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:59, 7 April 2016 (UTC)

Incomplete archives, will try to improve instructions[edit]

I guess the Centralized discussion archive is for making it easy to find old discussions, but I have noticed entries sometimes (or often? – I haven't looked deeply into that) are removed from the Centralized discussion list without being added to the archive. So I will try to improve the template's note about archiving. --Pipetricker (talk) 17:38, 5 May 2016 (UTC)

Domenic Cretara[edit]

Getting it “right”, for the figurative artist, does not lie in achieving verisimilitude but rather in getting the body language “right”. If the body language contains a gesture that is “right” it will communicate much to our understanding of the physical and psychological intent of the figure depicted The smallest gesture of face and hand can make or break the whole thing, the difference between describing insight into the human condition or describing indigestion can be one very small paint stroke or the gesture of a hand (ask any actor)

it is here, in the human physical gesture that Cretara gets it right, I refer particularly to his very large drawing “Going Home”, a work showing a man from the back (the artsts) walking up a sidewalk. The body language is ordinary, nothing extreme, but the work has great psychological presence. Norman lundin (talk) 23:00, 9 September 2016 (UTC)

Norman lundin Do you have any changes or additions to propose to our article about Domenic Cretara? If so feel free to edit the article or discuss on that article's talk page, but please keep in mind that if the statement above is just your own opinion, it would not be a valid addition - we only include information and views published in reliable sources and including citations to show where the information or views are taken from: Noyster (talk), 00:10, 10 September 2016 (UTC)

Why was my page GHAZIANI deleted?[edit]

Recently I created a page GHAZIANI, and next day it was deleted. Can someone help me? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Petrovic031 (talkcontribs) 22:14, 28 September 2016 (UTC)

Admin request text[edit]

The text "There is currently a request for adminship open for discussion." is too long, and tautological, but I can't see where to change it. I suggest trimming to, say, "A request for adminship is underway.". Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 09:57, 12 October 2016 (UTC)

A request for adminship is open for discussion or ... is being discussed?: Noyster (talk), 10:49, 12 October 2016 (UTC)
The word "discussion" is redundant, because the template is headed "Centralized discussion". "Underway" is shorter than either of your alternatives. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 18:20, 15 October 2016 (UTC)
@Andy: I'd prefer "A request for adminship is in progress." The nautical metaphor "underway" is probably less universally recognised: it's not given as a single word in my Concise Oxford. Anyway {{RfA watchlist notice/text}} is where to make a change and as it's fully protected we need an admin to oblige: Noyster (talk), 00:06, 17 October 2016 (UTC)
@Noyster: That works for me; nicely put. I'm just about to board a plane; please will you post such a request? Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 09:43, 17 October 2016 (UTC)
Requested: Noyster (talk), 10:15, 17 October 2016 (UTC)- and Yes check.svg Done [1] with thanks to Andy Wang : Noyster (talk), 23:55, 17 October 2016 (UTC)

@Noyster: What happened? The template currently reads "Four requests for adminship are open for discussion."> Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 21:27, 8 January 2017 (UTC)

Andy The change is the result of this discussion. (As you'll see I did ping you at the time). The message is still shorter than it was before October. The watchlist notice and the entry on CENT seem to be firmly bound together: Noyster (talk), 00:14, 9 January 2017 (UTC)


I'm involved in the Infobox person/Wikidata TfD discussion recently added to {{Cent}}, as is the editor who added it. We don't usually lists TfDs here, and I think this one should be removed. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 23:44, 26 January 2017 (UTC)

Crystal Clear action edit remove.png Removed I have to agree that there is little to no precedent for listing deletion discussions here no matter how hotly contested they are, and I wouldn't want to open the door to it becoming a regular thing. Beeblebrox (talk) 00:29, 27 January 2017 (UTC)

TFA slot[edit]

Not taking a position, just reporting the facts, and you guys can make the call. At WT:TFA, the last relevant comment was on the 22nd, and the last edit was on the 23rd. Option 1, at least, has nearly unanimous support. It may or may not be time to remove this from CENT. - Dank (push to talk) 14:22, 27 February 2017 (UTC)
