My dear friendEdit

I did not think it was necessary to wheel war over AN/I discussion closure; for this case, it was fine; but when are you going to run for RfA? Hundreds of us have been asking you and perhaps, GreenMeansGo. Alex Shih (talk) 20:26, 17 January 2018 (UTC)

@Alex Shih: Look: I really must apologise about the ANI close. I assure you—no excuse that it is—that I didn't realise that You had already closed it, that SoV had re-opened it, and then I turned up in size thirteens :) I saw the thread, went to the RfC, saw you'd closed that, and went back to the ANI thread... and closed it :o I'm afraid you and "hundreds" of others are now in the company of someone who didn't check the page history. A page one error! -and one which I will be rightfully condemned for. Sorry about that. Hope SarekoV didn't think I was stepping on their toes too. wel, clearly i did; but not deliberately. Nice message though: thanks! >SerialNumber54129...speculates 20:34, 17 January 2018 (UTC)

RfAEdit

I know a lot about RfA, prbably more than most because I pioneered the biggest ever investigation into it and I've voted on literally 100s of them.

Greenock StowawaysEdit

Hello:

The copy edit you requested from the Guild of Copy Editors of the article Greenock stowaways has been completed.

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

A couple of things I noticed. In the Ill-treatment section it reads:

Kerr, hearing of this, declared that the boys would henceforth get "the ground of their stomachs before they get any more", (Sfn|Donald|1928|p=54) but the footnote says: Refn|”Specifically, Kerr swore, according to Roughead, that the first mate would "give the ground of their stomachs before they got any more".sfn|Roughead|2014|p=15}}|group=note

Of the two mentions – the one in the text cites Donald, one as a footnote cites Roughead. One says "get" one says "give". I'm not even sure what this quote means. The citations should be checked and corrected if necessary.

Also:

It's unclear how many boys had shoes. "the stowaways had no shoes between them" or "since some of the boys had no shoes" – is that "no" or "some" – needs clarifying

In the Arrivals section the quote box mentions some had, some didn’t have shoes.

Arrivals:

Mentions five stowaways were put off the ship, where are the other two?

Same section, then we have "Of the six boys, Reilly and Bryson were keen to leave…" Seven boarded in Greenock. This just needs clarification.

Best of luck with the GA review.

@Gerda Arendt: well. If a page is worthy of mainspace—or can be encouraged to be so—then it most certainly should be; happy to help. For example. Yes, that DYK is a bit curious isn't it? I might wait and see how it pans out; but I think I'll be needing a QPQ soon enough :) I can kind of see the point though: you know I know nothing about classical music also, so all my edits are under advisement. Having said that, niche topics by their nature are going to have only a small pool of people who will find something automatically interesting; I think the aim with DYK (and that particular criterion) is to draw in the uninterested reader...and turn them into an interested one :) ——SerialNumber54129 11:22, 15 April 2019 (UTC)
PS: You're allowed more than two comments in this discussion, at least; where on earth did that rule come from?! ——SerialNumber54129 11:22, 15 April 2019 (UTC)
Starting at the end: I invented the restriction in WP:ARBINFOBOX (discussion of decision, look for "start today") as kind of a joke, and then they actually gave me that. Rescinded in 2015, but good practise, any discussion: make your point and walk away. Before: good approach in general, make them interested, and I thought "six operas" - no matter by whom - might do that. The article really might be boring to someone who needs an explanation for what "opera" is, - spare them that. Elsner: could you move that one? I feel I can't having done the update, and the one who sent it to draft hasn't answered. I hate giving our readers a red link, on top saying "was deleted", instead of an article, even if that article is not perfect, only decent. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 11:59, 15 April 2019 (UTC)
@Gerda Arendt: Elsner, already moved. I see what you mean re. comments; slightly odd though, creating your own "sentence" :) ——SerialNumber54129 12:10, 15 April 2019 (UTC)
That whole case was so kafkaesque that taking it as a farce was the best attitude. Took me a while, though, and this "best remembered as a farce" helped ;) - mind the 2014 date. Then turn to Yeats and see some still seriously debating in 2019. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 13:16, 15 April 2019 (UTC)

I think that's very forward of Oshwah. He should call you Mr. 2601:188:180:1481:65F5:930C:B0B2:CD63.--Bbb23 (talk) 23:21, 29 March 2019 (UTC)

Congratulations from the Military History ProjectEdit

  Military history reviewers' award
On behalf of the Military History Project, I am proud to present the The Milhist reviewing award (2 stripes) for January to March 2019 reviews. Peacemaker67 (talk) via MilHistBot (talk) 00:31, 3 April 2019 (UTC)

Keep track of upcoming reviews. Just copy and paste {{WPMILHIST Review alerts}} to your user space

...I suppose it's ironic that the MilHist bot completely nauses up the formatting too 😑 ——SerialNumber54129 10:08, 3 April 2019 (UTC)

ClashEdit

Now I'm not saying that AN/I isnt a lovely bubble for the most thoughtful and considerate to wave their hammers, but remind you of anywhere. Also thanks for the Clash reverts. Yes, WP:lEAD absolutely applies. Paul Ceoil (talk) 17:07, 14 April 2019 (UTC)

Right: The BUG EYES are an ANI dead give away. But thanks for making me feel old(er)...I saw DJ in brixton back in the day, they opened with Freak Scene. Classic tune.
As far as underrated Clash goes, my preference is Sandinista!, although perhaps that gained its cult following earlier? Cut the Ceoil Crap is coming on well—when, I suppose, you get the chance to actually write and not get pished about with {{fact}} tags... ——SerialNumber54129 17:31, 14 April 2019 (UTC)
Put it this way man, if you hadn't seen the edits before I did, I would have gone all nuclear and would be now serving hard time, listening to Johnny Cash, in Brixton. ps am a Combat Rock man myself. Ceoil (talk) 17:54, 14 April 2019 (UTC)

A barnstar for you!Edit

  The Anti-Vandalism Barnstar
Good work never goes unappreciated. Thanks a lot for your contributions in actively combating vandalism on Wikipedia, especially of the type that needs a deeper look. Keep up the good work. DBigXray 09:31, 18 April 2019 (UTC)
@DBigXray: Many thanks! I'm not not sure where I got my deep eye from ;) but cheers! ——SerialNumber54129 18:52, 18 April 2019 (UTC)
I am just guessing here, did you get it from the all seeing eye.  --DBigXray 05:59, 19 April 2019 (UTC)

Recent RevertEdit

I have mentioned clearly as it doesn’t make sense to give random statement which is not even related to that section. Secondly that reference mentioned as oxford is not used there instead it is from other reference.So I have kept it in talk page. Joshi punekar (talk) 15:32, 19 April 2019 (UTC)

For education and proselytisationEdit

  The Christianity Barnstar
By the authority vested in me by myself it gives me great pleasure to present you with this barnstar in recognition of your efforts in promoting a greater understanding of Christianity as practised during the 14th century. I look forward to many more such articles. Gog the Mild (talk) 18:59, 19 April 2019 (UTC)
@Gog the Mild: servus servorum dei, we aim to please. Many thanks, very funny! As it happens, Keldholme Priory election dispute is of a similar kidney, although not quite so interesting; no indecency or fake bodies but some immorality, at least... ——SerialNumber54129 19:23, 19 April 2019 (UTC)

Please discuss on the talk pageEdit

Please discuss your changes on the talk page of Waqar Zaka. There appears to be a question about some of the sources, which is of course a valid discussion to have. I have added 2 more sources and am seeking engagement on the talk page.--Jimbo Wales (talk) 21:49, 19 April 2019 (UTC)

I've responded there. Your sourcing is/was poor enough, but the NPOV language—worse. ——SerialNumber54129 21:55, 19 April 2019 (UTC)
I don't see any NPOV problems - the language that I used is in multiple reliable sources, and doesn't seem to be either praising or damning anything. It's just very plain factual language. Perhaps on the talk page you could explain what you find POV about it.--Jimbo Wales (talk) 22:40, 19 April 2019 (UTC)
It has been explained to you, multiple times. ——SerialNumber54129 09:20, 20 April 2019 (UTC)

Revert again!Edit

I have given same information that was there in citation then why?? Joshi punekar (talk) 18:14, 20 April 2019 (UTC)

Now really I want clarification. Joshi punekar (talk) 18:15, 20 April 2019 (UTC)

In Goa, the Saraswats were considered inferior in the caste hierarchy by the Chitpavan Brahmins. The Chitpavans, who are vegetarians looked upon the Saraswats as a polluted sub-caste because of their meat eating habits.[1]

Unfortunately, it has been pointed out by Fylindfotberserk that much of what you state is sourced is either original research or your own synthesis of the sources. And why all the bizarre formatting here? ——SerialNumber54129 18:31, 20 April 2019 (UTC)

  • @EdJohnston:...? Following the ANEW, the continuing obsession (including OR and SYNTH, see above) with piscine-eating castes on the same article (diff, diff, diff) since your warning yestreday, combined with increasingly bizarre behaviour—warnings on my user page, anyone?!—is making to increasingly unlikely that we are going to have a productive working relationship with this editor, although the hope and possibility is always there, of course. ——SerialNumber54129 18:49, 20 April 2019 (UTC)

Vale Royal AbbeyEdit

Hi, as requested on User talk:Iridescent, I hope to be able to get out to Vale Royal Abbey soon (possibly today) to get some photos for you. But what exactly do you want? Is it the nun's grave, or the abbey itself? Bazonka (talk) 08:05, 22 April 2019 (UTC)

@Bazonka: that sounds fantastic news, many thanks! I think, if you can, just the nun's grave should be ok—the article already has enough pictures of the post-dissolution house, and all that's left inside is a door arch and some graffiti. Now; I don't know if people are allowed to go in and take photos—I haven't heard back from them myself yet. If you can get a snap of the medieval graffiti that would be even better, but, failing that, the grave would be most original. Either way, don't put yourself out! How's the weather looking? ——SerialNumber54129 08:44, 22 April 2019 (UTC)
The weather is glorious, which means that the golfers will be out in force. It looks like the grave is in the middle of the course, so there's a chance I won't be able to get to it, but I'll do my best. Cheers, Bazonka (talk) 12:31, 22 April 2019 (UTC)
Of course, forgot about the bloody golf club. And it's a bank holiday. Still, as long as you find the 19th hole, Bazonka ;) ——SerialNumber54129 13:19, 22 April 2019 (UTC)
Sadly they wouldn't let an oik like me into the bar, but at least I was able to take some photos. I hope they're what you wanted. Here they are Bazonka (talk) 21:05, 22 April 2019 (UTC)
@Bazonka: glad you managed to dodge the golf balls at least! They're all great, many thanks! In fact, I think I'll cram a couple in, they're too good to waste! Cheers, ——SerialNumber54129 09:36, 23 April 2019 (UTC)

@GenerationCurrent2015: Ah, you mean you deliberately removed—diff, diff—a massive chunk of well-sourced (BBC, Independent, Guardian) material? On what grounds? That you don't like it being there, perhaps? ——SerialNumber54129 09:32, 26 April 2019 (UTC)
Mmm, are you sure they were trying to remove it instead of just move it as they did with this? Mr rnddude (talk) 09:34, 26 April 2019 (UTC)
I doubt it, although on reflection I've struck a portion of my reply here which leaned towards (read=a totally egregious) lack of good faith—apologies. ——SerialNumber54129 09:40, 26 April 2019 (UTC)
