Writing articles

You are now a ReviewerEdit

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, will be commencing a a two-month trial at approximately 23:00, 2010 June 15 (UTC).

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under flagged protection. Flagged protection is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles (talk) 17:55, 15 June 2010 (UTC)

Hi Felix, you can read lots more about this at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard#Pending changes trial imminent!. Having the new user-right won't mean that you have to do anything more, or anything differently, it just means that you are a trusted editor, and on a few selected articles you can approve edits made by editors who don't have the new right. The sort of articles likely to come under the new scheme will be some biographies of living people which attract a lot of vandalism, and subjects which are controversial, perhaps ones around climate change or terrorism. DuncanHill (talk) 09:25, 16 June 2010 (UTC)

Unified accountsEdit

Hiya. I note that you registered your English Wikipedia account on 27 February 2008 - therefore, currently, you do not have a unified account. More recently created accounts are automatically unified - meaning that the same username/password can be used on any of the sister projects.
Have a quick read of m:Help:Unified login#How to unify your accounts, and then, just go to Special:MergeAccount. Once your account is unified, you should be able to use the same username and password on all different language wikis - including Wikipedya Kernewek and Wikipédia francophone.  Chzz  ►  00:40, 29 July 2009 (UTC)
This account is now unified.--Felix Folio Secundus (talk) 09:15, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

British Isles (except Cornwall & Greater Manchester)Edit

Keble CollegeEdit

I noticed your Keble userbox, and wondered whether you might be able to help. I've started work on a couple of Keble-related lists (Honorary Fellows and alumni) to match some similar Jesus College lists that I've done. Have you kept back issues of the Keble Record? I have a feeling that there are going to be some details where the internet just won't do, and where old-fashioned paper sources will be needed. I've got a second-hand copy of the 1970 Centenary Register, so I should be OK up to that point, but details for later students / dates of election to a Hon Fellowship (for example) may be a problem. Any help you might be able to give would be fantastic. (I don't need anything right at the moment; it's just a general query for now). Regards, BencherliteTalk 12:48, 3 September 2009 (UTC)

Hello, I have got all the issues of the Record from the time I was at Keble i.e. 1964 onwards so would be able to help when you do start work.--Felix Folio Secundus (talk) 14:01, 6 September 2009 (UTC)

Excellent! I wonder whether at some point in the next few months I could ask you to have a hunt for the following pieces of information, for the Honorary Fellows list (HFs):

  • When did Lodwrick Cook get his HF, and why? I assume it was for donations to the college, but can't find anything online to confirm. At a guess, 1992 or 1993.
    • ARCO was a huge benefactor
      • Lodwrick M. Cook, chief executive of ARCO, according to The Record 1993.
  • Same questions for Ghillean Prance. At a guess, 1992 or 1993, for donations.
    • Ghillean Tolmie Prance, President Ronald Reagan, Stephen Desmond Watkins, Bryan Edgar Magee: all appear for the first time in The Record 1994
  • Same questions for Victoria de Breyne. At a guess, it was 2001 or 2002, for donations to the college
    • Certainly André Felix de Breyne gave large amounts during his lifetime
    • Victoria Benz was his 2nd wife (for 25 years) and outlived him; col. portrait of André and Victoria de Breyne in The Record 1994. Victoria appointed Hon Fellow from May 2002 according to The Record 2002; listed later as Victoria Grace de Breyne (still in list 2008).
  • Same questions for James Martin. At a guess, 2003 to 2005, for donations.
    • James Thomas Martin first appears as an Hon Fellow in 2005 (no obvious reason)
  • When did Howard Nixon get it? He hadn't got it by 1970 and he died in 1983, if that helps.
    • Granted in Dec 1980 according to his obituary notice in The Record 1983, p. 22-23
  • Who is Richard Thornton, and why was he given an HF (at a guess, in the mid-80s)?
    • Richard Chicheley Thornton first appears as an Hon Fellow in The Record 1987
  • Similarly, who is Stephen Watkins, and why was he given an HF (at a guess, in about 1992 or 1993)?
    • See above, Prance
  • Similarly, who is George Robinson, and why was he given an HF in 2002?
  • When was David Wilson, Baron Wilson of Tillyorn given his HF? At a guess, late 80s.
    • Lord Wilson first appears as an Hon Fellow in The Record 1987
  • Does the Record say why John Betjeman was given an HF in 1974?
    • This is before a complete list of all Fellows is printed: that was the time of the Centenary Appeal and he appears as one of 13 "Friends" in an appeal leaflet. His role within the Victorian Society and his writings on architecture must have been the reasons for an Hon Fellowship. 1975 issue notes that Betjeman, an Hon Fellow has been given an Hon D.Litt. by the University of Dublin.
  • Does the Record say why Ronald Reagan was given an HF in 1994? Seems a surprising choice!
    • No mention of why he was chosen; see above, Prance. The Record 2004 prints a half-page obituary notice: Reagan visited Keble in 1992 and was principal guest at a lunch also attended by Lord Jenkins, Chancellor of the University; Hon Fellow from 1994.
  • Did the Record print an obituary for Andre de Breyne? He looks as though he should be notable, but I can't find much about him. Any information about his wife/widow Victoria?
    • Probably widow and very aged; certainly appears in Record
      • Obituary of de Breyne in The Record 1998, pp. 29-31 & port. as fp. A Belgian but in Britain since 1914: had a leading role in Standard Industrial Trust Ltd. 1st wife Catherine d. 1971, no children. Notable art collector.
  • Did the Record print an obituary for Alfred Hans von Engel (died 1992)? Again, he looks notable, but difficult to find out details for.
    • Funeral address for him (he died 2 October 1991) in The Record 1992 gives 1980 as the date of his Hon Fellowship. Retrospective tribute by Raoul Franklin in The Record 2002, pp. 9-11, explains his family background, etc. (earlier listings for him as Fellow have: Alfred Hans Engel de Janosi)

There is of course absolutely no rush for any of this information, and any help you can give would be very gratefully received. For the "when and why" info, all I'd need in addition to the info is the details of the Record in question: year, page, section title and (if given) author. For the "who is / obituary" questions, if there's enough to make a stab at an article, I'll gladly have a go if you can give me the material (do you have a scanner?) The Featured List process likes lists to have articles rather than redlinks, but if the people in question aren't "notable" in the Wikipedia sense, so be it. Hope this all makes sense. Regards, and best wishes, BencherliteTalk 20:13, 13 October 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for your message. Nixon is in Who Was Who but neither that nor his obituary in The Times gives the date of his HF. Look forward to hearing from you again in due course. (Oh, and I liked your accidental but sadly temporary description of the Eagle and Child as a college...!) BencherliteTalk 20:45, 13 October 2009 (UTC)

Wonderful! Thanks ever so much for all your time and trouble. I'll let you know if I need anything else, or photocopies. Regards, BencherliteTalk 07:48, 24 October 2009 (UTC)

List of Honorary Fellows of Keble College, OxfordEdit

Many thanks for your help with some references a few months ago. I've now finished the list, more-or-less, and moved it to main space. My plan is to nominate it at Featured List candidates in a little while, once the current list that I've got up there (Savilian Professor of Geometry, since you ask) is cleared for promotion. Would you object if I listed you as a co-nominator in return for the help you've given to date? (And also just in case there's some more help I need from you if there are any queries!) Regards, BencherliteTalk 22:41, 11 March 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for your reply. Perhaps before we get to FLC, you can help with a few minor missing things that I'm sure will be noted by reviewers. Do you have the page number and section title (e.g. "Letter from the Warden", "(List of) Honorary Fellows") mentioning the award of Hon Fellowship to:
  • David Wilson, Baron Wilson of Tillyorn, from the 1987 Record
College elections and appointments, on p. 9
  • Lodwrick Cook, from the 1993 Record
College elections and appointments, on p. 11
  • Ghillean Prance, from the 1994 Record
College elections and appointments, on p. 75
  • Desmond Watkins, from the 1994 Record
College elections and appointments, on p. 75
  • Victoria de Breyne, from the 2002 Record
College elections and appointments, on p. 67
  • Ronald Reagan, from the 2004 Record
College elections and appointments, 1994, on p. 75
The life of the College, 2004; "Ronald Reagan, Honorary GCB" on p 15
  • James Martin, from the 2005 Record
he appears as last in the list of HFs on p. 74 but is not listed under College elections and appointments
If you give me the details, I can add them into the list. Many thanks, BencherliteTalk 13:50, 16 March 2010 (UTC)

List of Honorary Fellows of Keble College, Oxford is now nominated for Featured List status at Wikipedia:Featured list candidates/List of Honorary Fellows of Keble College, Oxford/archive1, and I've added you as a co-nominator to reflect the invaluable assistance you provided. You may be called upon in the next few weeks as the list is evaluated, but I hope I can handle the routine stuff without bothering you! Many thanks, BencherliteTalk 10:15, 14 May 2010 (UTC)

Featured ListEdit

Many thanks for your assistance, without which this list could not have been completed, let alone reach Featured status. BencherliteTalk 13:15, 1 June 2010 (UTC)

The Sixth Form College, FarnboroughEdit

I noticed you moved this article to Farnborough Sixth Form College. This was not correct, as is shown on their website, all college stationary and so on and so forth. The name was changed more than 6 years ago to differentiate it from Farnborough College of Technology Thanks. UFUU (talk) 15:55, 9 October 2009 (UTC)

This has since had The removed.

Hollie Chapman and King ArthurEdit

Thanks for the quick edit. Something like this: The Winchester Malory: A Facsimile (S[upplementary] S[eries] - Early English Text Society; No. 4) (Gebundene Ausgabe) von Thomas Malory (Autor), N. R. Ker (Herausgeber) ISBN: 0197224040 But it is very expansive in Germany EUR 103,99 Possible you know how good the facsimile is or a cheaper way to a facsimile like this. with friendly greetings, Sönke --Soenke Rahn (talk) 22:09, 14 November 2009 (UTC)

To the Re: Hello again, I think the quality of the facsimile would be good as printed by Oxford University Press: I suppose the price is high since the number of copies produced would not be large. ---- Thank you, good arguement. Now, I ordered it by the library, so that I can look into it. I found today this site: Crossing the Red Sea. Possible it would be interesting to place the: this article is within the scope of WikiProject Bible, WikiProject Christianity, etc. statements on this site? I have never done something like this, so I suppose it is better that I write you. --- In the moment I must write for the University still again on my (paper) work: Über den Duden und den Einfluss verschiedener Ideologien auf ihn = literal: About the Duden and the influence of several Idologies on him. So I suppose I will have the next three month a lot of fun and so I am a little bit stressed. --- I will say you how the facsimile is, I suppose it is one of your toppics. with friendly greetings, Sönke (-: --Soenke Rahn (talk) 08:39, 20 November 2009 (UTC)

Hello Felix, in the last weeks I have had a cold. Since last week it is better. The snowe goes away and I hope that this cold-time will go away. In the moment I must see that I will work for a presentation about Lutherfilms. This is the reason that I make some film articles in the moment. Because it is better when I can say that I am interested in films in general when I presentate it. But I will see that I will look about the library articles again. (There is a lot to do.) -- I got the Arthur script, we talked about it in the library, it was interesting but not the thing I want. It was handwritten but I will have the first print of the Arthur print. But all what I have found was very expensive. --- But to see the handwritten text was interesting. I hope that you don't have snow on the isle. In the moment I like rain. (-: In this semester I will hear Handlungsorientierte Sprachwissenschaft (whatever that is) and hebrew, not more because I have to do. with friendly greetings, Sönke --Soenke Rahn (talk) 23:27, 16 March 2010 (UTC)

St Hugh's College, OxfordEdit

I'll try and take a look. It's the 125th anniversary next year, I gather, and there's an official college history in preparation, which should be useful. BencherliteTalk 15:35, 18 November 2010 (UTC)

Felicitations Felix,

User:Monkap and I have been taking a longish Wikibreak while we have been moving house.We'll have a look at that article for you within a week or so, I hope.

WikiProject EnglandEdit

Deletion of wpe bannerEdit

Hi, I noticed from my watchlist that you have been deleting the WikiProject England banner from the talk pages of various articles relating to Somerset villages etc. I don't have any objection but wondered whether this had been discussed anywhere and I'd missed it?— Rod talk 10:27, 2 September 2011 (UTC)

Thanks - years ago I argued that towns & villages which have county project banners on their talk pages didn't need wpe (or UKGEO) and that these should in some way then be aggregated into the parent projects - but nothing came of this. However I would suggest putting an note on the wpe talk page just explaining what you are doing, otherwise you will get others like me questioning why you are doing it.— Rod talk 11:11, 2 September 2011 (UTC)


Hi, Can you explain why the WikiProject England template is being removed from numerous article talk pages. I would have thought that the project covered all of the ones that appear on my watchlist. Most English villages should be under three projects, the local area project, WikiProject UK geography and WikiProject England. Keith D (talk) 20:50, 5 September 2011 (UTC)

I have added part of relevant discussion above (another message on talk:Rodw). I now think deleting the wpe banners was a mistake and have stopped doing it. In practice the coverage is very patchy anyway.--Felix Folio Secundus (talk) 21:01, 5 September 2011 (UTC)
Thanks. I was wondering if there had been some discussion/decision while I was away on this. I have added the specific county projects to Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, Warwickshire and Coventry articles so there should be none of these around without the specific project unless they were created/added to the county category tree in the last month. 21:25, 6 September 2011 (UTC)

Double O (charity)Edit

Hi, Felix. I notice you've added the WikiProject medical tag to this article. Why do you feel Double O should be a medical article? It's a UK charity that funds various humanitarian causes. Pkeets (talk) 19:35, 6 January 2012 (UTC)

Your message was unclear. Are you referring to the "health charity" category? This is a foundation that was begun by a rock bank to fund charity causes of their choice. It's true they provide funding to drug addiction and other medical facilities, but also schools, disaster relief, prison reform, women's shelters, and work dog training centers. They do not conduct medical research or provide direct medical services. I'm not sure a medical tag is appropriate. Pkeets (talk) 00:03, 7 January 2012 (UTC)

Cork International Exhibition (1902)Edit

Thank you for new article reviewing Cork International Exhibition (1902). And of course the improvements. Icarusgeek (talk) 17:47, 13 February 2012 (UTC)

Tyneside SongsterEdit

Thanks for your valuable and thoughtful input! Man vyi (talk) 16:35, 22 February 2013 (UTC)

Project banner removalEdit

I notice that you removed some WikiProject Ireland banners from a number of article talk pages at the same time replacing them with the Irish Music project banner. This is inappropriate as the Ireland project still applies to the article even though it also can be listed by the Irish Music project. Many article have several related project banners. Many Northern Ireland articles have both Ireland and Northern Ireland banners and this is quite correct because the Ireland project applies to everything to do with the island of Ireland. You are welcome to add any other appropriate banners but please don't remove any that are correctly placed there. If you care to get involved in actually assessing Ireland Project article you may wish to become a member of the team and follow the guidelines. Thanks. ww2censor (talk) 14:09, 25 July 2013 (UTC)

Message understood; will leave WP Ireland in place.--Felix Folio Secundus (talk) 08:01, 26 July 2013 (UTC)

Ireland Project bannerEdit

You have been working hard but I notice that sometimes you are using the old project banner {{WP Ireland}} that has long since been replaced with {{WikiProject Ireland}}. I hope you can use that one in future and replace any of the old ones you come across. Oh, BTW, I see your talk page is now very long so you may want to consider archiving it automatically by using one of the bot like User:MiszaBot's User:MiszaBot III. Thanks ww2censor (talk) 16:13, 12 August 2013 (UTC)

Thank you for the advice: I will use the longer version of the banner. I have shortened the page by moving some content to subpages. I have contributed one new article on Cornelius Lyons for the Ireland project.--Felix Folio Secundus (talk) 17:33, 12 August 2013 (UTC)
There is a User:BattyBot which comes along and processes talk pages with abbreviated WikiProjects (e.g. Talk:Greater Bangladesh).--Felix Folio Secundus (talk) 08:11, 3 September 2013 (UTC)


I noticed that you added citations to a book by Farmer, published in 1978, that has something to do with Bede (for example, this edit). But the article does not contain a bibliography with a full citation to Farmer's book. Could you please add one? Jc3s5h (talk) 16:36, 13 December 2013 (UTC)

There are other citns which appear to have the same problem. It may be because text has been moved here from the Bede article. I have added details for each of these but I do not understand the method by which they can be linked together.--Felix Folio Secundus (talk) 17:17, 13 December 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for your quick response. Actually, you were a little too quick. While you were fixing it, I was independently doing the same thing you were doing. I also added the ref=harv parameter to each citation template so the harvnb templates could link between the citation and the bibliography entry. I hope we both came up with essentially the same solution. Jc3s5h (talk) 17:26, 13 December 2013 (UTC)


Hi, I did a Google check and "Cockayne" is the more accepted spelling, so I reverted your edit. We can discuss further on the article talk page if you like. —    Bill W.    (Talk)  (Contrib)  — 20:08, 23 December 2013 (UTC)

Sorry, looks like I undid more than just your spelling change. Will fix that now. —    Bill W.    (Talk)  (Contrib)  — 20:13, 23 December 2013 (UTC)

Happy Reformation Day and Halloween Night (and so on)Edit

I will answer you soon. But I will not forget to wish you: An Happy Reformation Day and Halloween Night ---- Sönke --Soenke Rahn (talk) 21:33, 30 October 2010 (UTC) By the way: http://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luther_film with friendly greetings -- --Soenke Rahn (talk) 14:32, 31 October 2010 (UTC)

A tiny News: I have a Internet flatrate again (since this day), in the last months I was at home off-line. So I will edit more in the wikipedia again. (-: --Soenke Rahn (talk) 22:19, 8 November 2010 (UTC)
Now the answer (Sorry - it's very late.): It is cold in Flensburg. All leaves are down now. (The Chestnuts in my street too. - In this year we have had a lot of chestnuts in the street.) In the moment I will write an article to the old Hobbit film (1977) (in German).
I suppose that I will see that I will fill again some gaps in the articles round about the Luther Bible. Do you know? - I have made essays to translate parts of the German Luther Bible into English. This is some years ago. It was interesting to see the relations. Possibly I will look over this work again and place some parts on a personal homepage. But before I should make a correction again. Evgeny Kovtun will have its time.
(A difficult case: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Audio_theatre - not verry important) Since yesterday, there exists a Russian version of the Luther film article. By this way I got new informations to the topic, (-: I have placed today on the German Lutherfilm article. I think the winter will come and I should use the heating. brrrr. it's cold! --Soenke Rahn (talk) 20:04, 14 November 2010 (UTC)

I have merged it: Audio theatre. It was to strange. with friendly greetings, Soenke --Soenke Rahn (talk) 18:44, 19 November 2010 (UTC)

I you will have fun on it, i don't no:

But it is not imporatant for me

The snow grows higher and hinger in ourt streets. brrrr. I have made a lot of articles again on the German wiikipedia, because some users gives me a kick. So I hope that I will finish my German edits soon. e.g de:Luthers Vulgata-Revision So that I will make possibly only edits on the english for a time or more. (-: --Soenke Rahn (talk) 10:23, 22 December 2010 (UTC)

Evgeny Kovtun etc.

Hi, Felix, Thanks for the information. I will look on the deletion discussion, it will be interesting. In the moment I edit a lot outside the wikipedia, if you will google my name you will see that there are a lot of entries, wikis etc. It is a dump, so that it would be impossible that people will nerve realy. I suppose and this may be one reason for it. (-; Outside the wikipedia you can detect me on youtube (there are some videos from me from Flensburg) and facebook. It is interesting how thinks in the internet going on. And I begun in the last month to make some homepages. I like it, if I will sometimes place texts, which will be not changed. But I hope that I will take again more time on the wikipedia, especially the english one. There are some articles I want to write.

If not there, is nothing wrong. (-: Evgeny Kovtun was erased. (-: In the next hour I should read the first book of the Narnia books, which was first written down. Learing with, fun. The Easter Day is the right day for something like this. (-: --Soenke Rahn (talk) 16:01, 24 April 2011 (UTC)

I will have the article in my mind, but this week the time ... )-: In the moment I wait for a phone call for a film extra job in the new Famous Five film (hope it works) and I must enlarge my Tyndale Homepage. I begun to translate the text The Parable of the wicked Mammon. friendly greetings Sönke (-: --Soenke Rahn (talk) 14:31, 24 June 2011 (UTC)

No problem, I have forgotten the facebook thing, for my person I own more than one e-mails and facebook account, but not really anonymous. It is complicated, to create a second identit"ies". And on the other hand it is sometimes complicated to generate a second account and so on. The Only thing I like on facebook really is the chat-function. meinvz.net makes the same thing but is creatable without problems. So if you will change your mind for chatting one time or to use something like this as a Clipboard (e.g. for pre-translating), this could be maybe a way. But the topic is not so important --- The weather is nice. The chances for the extra job are not low, but I will see, it would be possibly interesting for me. In the moment I am proud that I have translated some sentences into German: https://sites.google.com/site/tyndaledeutsch/schriften/die-parabel-vom-boesen-mammon The only thing which is not good is that I do not get the original print (facsimile of it), the same with the script The Obedience of a Christian Man. --Soenke Rahn (talk) 06:40, 25 June 2011 (UTC)

ok, in the moment I translate a lot, so I will make a brain storming. If I see it right the St. Paul's church passage owns two or three sentences. ... So I make it in the moment. (-: --Soenke Rahn (talk) 06:50, 25 June 2011 (UTC)
Tintagel, seems to be an interesting village. I have enlarged the German article of it. Possibly later I suppose it would be possible to make a separate article St Paul's Church, Tintagel, like how you made it in the English Version.

WPJournals parametersEdit

Hi, I see you have added "importance=xxx" to some WPJournals templates. The Academic Journals Wikiproject does not use this parameter, so you can save yourself the trouble. :-) Happy editing! --Crusio (talk) 13:34, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

Commons problemEdit

This help request has been answered. If you need more help, please place a new {{help me}} request on this page followed by your questions, or contact the responding user(s) directly on their user talk page.

In the last few days I have found problems with accessing Wikimedia Commons: soon after entering it gets closed down by Internet Explorer.Felix Folio Secundus (talk) 10:10, 18 February 2011 (UTC)

Try resetting your router. If that doesn't work, try Down For Everyone or Just Me?. If that shows it as up, try calling your ISP and seeing if they can help. If that doesn't work, try a different browser. If that doesn't work, post a {{help me}} template back up and someone will be by to help you. Banaticus (talk) 10:51, 18 February 2011 (UTC)

Invitation to take part in a pilot studyEdit

I am a Wikipedian, who is studying the phenomenon on Wikipedia. I need your help to conduct my research on about understanding "Motivation of Wikipedia contributors." I would like to invite you to a short survey. Please give me your valuable time, which estimates only 5 minutes. cooldenny (talk) 19:52, 14 April 2011 (UTC)


That the article's sighted version status. You wouldn't see these colors on the en_wiki because this feature is not implemented here. A pale yellow highlight means that the article needs to be sighted, while pale blue means that the article had already been sighted by someone. The exact implementation details may vary from one Wikipedia to another, but in general your edits will always be marked as unsighted in Wikipedias where you don't have an autoreviewer status, and you can do nothing to change that unless you have a reviewer status. The bottom line—you can safely ignore that highlighting :)—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); June 28, 2011; 13:28 (UTC)

New Page Patrol surveyEdit

New page patrol – Survey Invitation

Hello Felix Folio Secundus! The WMF is currently developing new tools to make new page patrolling much easier. Whether you have patrolled many pages or only a few, we now need to know about your experience. The survey takes only 6 minutes, and the information you provide will not be shared with third parties other than to assist us in analyzing the results of the survey; the WMF will not use the information to identify you.

  • If this invitation also appears on other accounts you may have, please complete the survey once only.
  • If this has been sent to you in error and you have never patrolled new pages, please ignore it.

Please click HERE to take part.
Many thanks in advance for providing this essential feedback.

You are receiving this invitation because you have patrolled new pages. For more information, please see NPP Survey

Your talkpageEdit

Entirely up to you how you organise your talkpage (within Wikipedia guidelines of course). You are probably used to it and comfortable with it. However, just to let you know that as a user I found it hard to navigate and find anything. It appears to me that some of the material at the top might be better placed on your user page, while much of the rest could usefully be archived. This would make it easier for others to use. If you are not sure how to archive, let me know, and I'll show you. SilkTork ✔Tea time 18:53, 9 March 2012 (UTC)

I like it. friendly greetings from Germany. --Soenke Rahn (talk) 22:05, 9 March 2012 (UTC)

Sub page perhaps?Edit

As I find your talkpage awkward to deal with, and you are hesitant about archiving, how about creating a subpage for communication? You could watchlist it, so you know I have left you a message. Creating a subpage is easy - /Libraries. SilkTork ✔Tea time 19:17, 13 March 2012 (UTC)

Request to take part in a surveyEdit

I am Piotr Konieczny, a fellow Wikipedian (User:Piotrus) and a researcher of Wikipedia (http://scholar.google.com/citations?user=gdV8_AEAAAAJ). I am currently (in collaboration with WMF) embarking on a project trying to understand why the most active Wikipedia contributors (such as yourself) may reduce their activity, or retire. We have a growing understanding of why an average editor may do so (see http://strategy.wikimedia.org/wiki/Former_Contributors_Survey_Results), but we have a very limited understanding of why the top editors would limit their contributions. Yet it is the top editors like yourself who contribute most of Wikiepdia's content, thus understanding this is of vital concern to Wikipedia's project future.

I am contacting you because you are among the top Wikipediana by number of edits, yet your editing activity shows a decline. I would very much appreciate if you would take a minute and answer the following four short questions. Please note this is not a mass email; I am contacting only few dozen of editors like yourself, and each response is extremely valuable. Your response will not be made public, and your privacy will be fully respected.

If you would like to help out in this project and take part in a very short survey, please send me a wikiemail, so that I can send you an email with the survey questions. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 19:51, 19 July 2013 (UTC)

Hi, I wonder if you had time to consider my request? --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 11:24, 25 July 2013 (UTC)
Thanks, that's all I needed, really :) The survey basically asks if the reason for lessened contribs is related to personal life/work or wikicoflicts/wikistress. Cheers, --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 11:37, 25 July 2013 (UTC)

Re: WikistressEdit

I wish I had a good advice to offer. Hope the following will help, through it probably just repeats Wikipedia:Wikistress:

  • don't let small number of negative incidents/troll ruin the fun found elsewhere;
  • as annoying as this is, remember that any incident is probably of little importance in any scheme of grand things - don't let it annoy you too much;
  • seek community assistance through procedures outline in WP:DR;

I could send you a draft of my article, but it is academic (i.e. it's primary functions do not include being realistically useful - too much theorizing :>); Cheers, --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 02:28, 23 September 2013 (UTC)

Sad to no longer see you aroundEdit

Hey Felix, I just realized that you quietly disappeared last year, and wanted to note my sadness to no longer have you contributing to the project. I remember fondling seeing your name come across my watchlist a lot when I first started, and we certainly lost an expert in article assessment, and cleaning up and improving content in history, and many other topics. Its a real bummer, and I hope to find you around again at some point, Sadads (talk) 15:14, 21 July 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open!Edit

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Ashburne Hall until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion.

In 2009 you added a paragraph to Trefeca regarding the foundation of a theological college, with the check-in comment ‎Coleg Trefeca: text from other article. Your new text is almost identical to a page in the Calvinistic Methodist Archives at the National Library of Wales, [1]

Did you copy the text from there? If so it breaks the Wikipedia:Plagiarism rules. If you did not write this text for Wikipedia then please rewrite the paragraph in you own words, citing the source. Otherwise, delete the paragraph and add an external link under further reading. Verbcatcher (talk) 22:47, 2 July 2016 (UTC)

Europe 10,000 Challenge inviteEdit

Hi. The Wikipedia:WikiProject Europe/The 10,000 Challenge has recently started, based on the UK/Ireland Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge. The idea is not to record every minor edit, but to create a momentum to motivate editors to produce good content improvements and creations and inspire people to work on more countries than they might otherwise work on. There's also the possibility of establishing smaller country or regional challenges for places like Germany, Italy, the Benelux countries, Iberian Peninsula, Romania, Slovenia etc, much like Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic). For this to really work we need diversity and exciting content and editors from a broad range of countries regularly contributing. If you would like to see masses of articles being improved for Europe and your specialist country like Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The Africa Destubathon, sign up today and once the challenge starts a contest can be organized. This is a way we can target every country of Europe, and steadily vastly improve the encyclopedia. We need numbers to make this work so consider signing up as a participant and also sign under any country sub challenge on the page that you might contribute to! Thank you. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 06:07, 6 November 2016 (UTC)
