Argentine politicians proliferationEdit

Wow, that's a lot of work! Congratulations! I wanted to ask you were did you find the United Nations comment on Vicente López Partido. Thanks and good wiking! Mariano(t/c) 14:19, 29 June 2006 (UTC)

Thanks. The info in question was from the ARI page which I have now added as a citation. I cannot find a better reference on UN or Vicente López sites, so perhaps it is best taken off entirely, as ARI is not exactly a useful source for this particular info. I know the UN does issue these awards as Porto Alegre is often cited as the UN's favourite municipality worldwide, but not sure which institution does it.
It would be a useful project for someone to complete a list of current members of Congress and perhaps those elected at each election, as there needs to be a stub for each of them. But not sure if it would be anyone's priority. Once I have created a stub for Patti, I'll go back to the 1816 Congresales who don't keep changing jobs and parties. Mtiedemann 14:46, 29 June 2006 (UTC)

Caroline BennEdit

I see that you added to the above article the information that the Benns met over tea at Worcester College, Oxford. Then someone added her to the "former students of Worc Coll" Category, and I am about to reverse that (because Worcester certainly didn't take female students in 1949). I know that Tony B wasn't at Worcester, so I presume that they met in the rooms of some mutual friend - unless, perhaps, she taught at Worcester in some capacity. Or it could just be an error, not necessarily yours, of course. Do you know any more detail about their meeting? --GuillaumeTell 15:10, 29 June 2006 (UTC)

Good work!Edit

 
The Barnstar of National Merit for your work in Argentina-related articles.

Nothing too fancy, but I thought you deserved this, and I'm sure all the Argentine editors would agree.

You can do whatever you want with this barnstar: display it in your userpage, edit the text, or hide it somewhere. :) Keep up the good work! —Pablo D. Flores (Talk) 11:29, 7 July 2006 (UTC)

Thank you!! Mtiedemann 11:30, 7 July 2006 (UTC)

I totally agree! Hey, one little thingy, which article, Argentine Declaration of Independence or Congress of Tucumán, should have the list of signatories/members? Take care! Mariano(t/c) 08:00, 19 July 2006 (UTC)
Thanks! At the moment they both have it - is there anything wrong with that? I don't have access to information on the compostion such as whether there were changes in composition or whether there were delegates elected who did not attend. That would be better information for the Congress article whereas the declaration article is about one aspect of its work. Unbelievably the only book on the House that they sell there in its bookshop (at least in June) did not have information about the members, but I'll keep looking. Thanks, Martín 08:07, 19 July 2006 (UTC)

Support for an Egalitarian RepublicEdit

Hey, check my comment about the page's name in Talk:Support for an Egalitarian Republic. What do you think? Should I change it? Sebastian Kessel Talk 21:26, 14 July 2006 (UTC)

En españolEdit

No sé hablar inglés. Aún así creo saber a lo que se refiere: el País Vasco es una comunidad autónoma de España. Eso es lo oficial y lo real. El territorio histórico del País Vasco ya tiene su artículo separado. Cuando alguien se refiere al País Vasco lo hace a la autonomía (p.e.: Bilbao está en el País Vasco). 15px Satesclop 11:38, 22 July 2006 (UTC)

Yo soy un usuario habitual de Wikipedia en Español, pero he editado hoy en esta Wikipedia porque los anglosajones no conocéis la realidad de España y pensáis que Ceuta, Melilla, las Islas Canarias, Cataluña, Euskadi, etc... son territorios que pertenecen a España, y en realidad todos esos son parte íntegra de España. Ninguna comunidad autónoma española tiene una "selección nacional de fútbol", y llamarla así es vandalismo. Por otra parte, me parece que usted no tiene un nivel de español es-4, sino más bien un es-3. ¿No sabe utilizar los acentos en español? 15px Satesclop 12:17, 22 July 2006 (UTC)
I'm sorry, but I cannot speak in a language that I don't know. I you inform that I will not be able to take part in a discussion on this matter because I don't speak this language. (This is an automatic translation). Saludos. 15px Satesclop 13:49, 22 July 2006 (UTC)

Past commentEdit

Hi there Mtiedemann! - Thanks for the comment that you left on my talk page, I really appreciate it. One of the reasons of why I was not adding my new works in the ARNB, was because I had the thought that I was going to cause some kind of 'clutter'. In a way they didn't seem as important as the articles listed there which are related to either politics, geography, bios, etc... As you said, it's also a good way of promoting certain topics, maybe some others will contribute as well expanding the films or other kind of entertainment types. And hey, although politics and history is not my thing, for the rest is important. See ya around. CROWDUDE 12:14, 25 July 2006 (UTC)

Bill HamlingEdit

Thanks for updating William Hamling. Glad to see someone else knows of him. Nunquam Dormio 17:11, 25 July 2006 (UTC)

No probs, I didn't know him before but I am going through UK politicians. Thanks again, Martín (saying/doing) 17:39, 26 July 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for expanding all those MP articlesEdit

Hi Mtiedemann. I just wanted to thank you for your feedback and for expanding/cleaning all those British MP articles I created - I noticed you were doing that a few days ago. I've not been a Wikipedian for very long and it's helpful to be given advice by an expert such as yourself. I'm generally working backwards from the 1992 election for MPs without articles, and I have copies of the Times Guide to the House of Commons going back from 2005 to October 1974 so far. I use the MPs elected in the UK general election "year" articles to see if the individual MPs have articles or not, then create them if they're highlighted in red instead of blue. --Dovea 19:15, 27 July 2006 (UTC)

Idris OwenEdit

This is what the Times Guide to the House of Commons October 1974 says about Mr Idris Owen: held the seat (Stockport North) for the Conservatives from 1970 to February 1974. Contested it in 1966, Stalybridge and Hyde 1955 and Manchester Exchange 1951. Company director in the construction industry. B 1912; ed Stockport School and College of Technology and Manchester School of Commerce. Fellow, Institute of Builders. Vice-president, National Federation of Building Trades Employers, 1965. Vice-chairman, Conservative parliamentary housing and construction commitee 1972-1974.

As for the Labour and Co-operative Party MPs, I only found them as noted on the articles listing all the MPs elected at each general election, eg. MPs elected in the United Kingdom general election, 1992. I hope this info is helpful, it's the least I can do after you expanded all those articles. Regards, --Dovea 11:21, 29 July 2006 (UTC)

Council AFDsEdit

I saw your note about the AFDs on User_talk:Timrollpickering#Councillors_for_AfD. If you've added the notability tags and nothing has happened, you could use {{prod}} rather than taking it to AFD: after all, if nobody is interested in the article it is likely to be an uncontroversial delete, and is better than listing lots of almost identical AFDs. Yomangani 15:12, 29 July 2006 (UTC)

Thanks that's useful. I've just tried it out on a bunch from Brentwood and Colchester, so we'll see how it works. Martín (saying/doing) 18:51, 29 July 2006 (UTC)

Female life peersEdit

Reply on my talk: all done. --BrownHairedGirl 20:44, 29 July 2006 (UTC)

Thanks, by the way - that was great. Martín (saying/doing) 14:15, 2 August 2006 (UTC)

Mayors of ColchesterEdit

Surely the object of Wikipedia is to add & expand information, not to delete it? Davidbober 14:02, 2 August 2006 (UTC)

I believe that Wikipedia has a role to catalogue info on local government and have created the hierarchy for UK councillors and several local government articles because it is important to me. What I don't think we can have is a biography on every councillor (tens of thousands in just the last five years), for whom there is little information which can be independently verifiable from a reliable source, nor would there be very much to say which is encyclopedic anyway. A list of Mayors and a list of councillors elected at each election is sufficient to show name, ward, party, year - all that is really relevant.
I am sorry of your hard work goes in the process - it's happened to me too. Martín (saying/doing) 14:15, 2 August 2006 (UTC)
I suppose so... Oh well, if I find anything specificially encylopedic on individuals then I will recreate articles as needed. I think the following can safely be deleted.
List to delete looks about right based on that criteria. Davidbober 02:16, 4 August 2006 (UTC)

British female MPs category for discussion err discussionEdit

Hi there. As someone who had commented earlier today at CFD for British female MPs, I wanted to inform you that there was a later nomination in the day regarding the same related categories and I wanted to make sure that you had the opportunity to view the newly refactored discussion. Both original nominations and their discussions are preserved. We can try to sort out the best decision regarding these categories if you choose not to clarify, but I'd appreciate it if you could. Thanks very much for your understanding. Syrthiss 22:08, 2 August 2006 (UTC)

Thankyou!Edit

Thanks v much for the barnstar :) It cheered me up immensely after a day where I beginning to think that wikipedia was a nightmare :( --BrownHairedGirl 15:01, 3 August 2006 (UTC)

My pleasure! Martín (saying/doing) 07:50, 4 August 2006 (UTC)

Congress of TucumánEdit

Great Job, Martinček! As a child I always wandered who were all those guys from street names around my place in Almagro. In fact, when waiting for each of the articles you were spitting out to open up in my browser, I was always hoping to see the description of a street. ;o) Take care, and keep rocking! Mariano(t/c) 07:37, 4 August 2006 (UTC)

You're right - what a good idea! I kept thinking this would turn into an article about Palermo Viejo, maybe I'll go back and add them! Martín (saying/doing) 07:50, 4 August 2006 (UTC)

Re: El ChangoEdit

Yessss, my preciousss, picturessssss we want!! Mariano(t/c) 07:12, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

The quest is progressing well, a few more days and the ring photo will be mine. Martín (saying/doing) 07:34, 7 August 2006 (UTC)
Great!
Y'now what? The guys at the Spanish wikipedia (es:Wikiproyecto:Argentina) are having a turbo on science articles. If you'r interested check es:Wikiproyecto:Argentina/Ciencias and es:Wikiproyecto:Argentina/Noticias. Mariano(t/c) 11:03, 9 August 2006 (UTC)
Great picture!! You think I should touch it a bit to reduce smoke noise (more contrast), or leave it as is for dramatic effect? By the way, you've got mail. Mariano(t/c) 09:32, 14 August 2006 (UTC)
I lightened it somewhat with some increased contrast already as it was very moodily dark in the original, but if it needs more, feel free. I can send you the original if you like. Martín (saying/doing) 09:46, 14 August 2006 (UTC)

MPs by ParliamentEdit

I have made a suggestion for how to categorise MPs by Parliament: see Category talk:British_MPs#MPs_by_Parliament, and would welcome your comments. --BrownHairedGirl 21:17, 8 August 2006 (UTC)

WPArgentinaEdit

Hi Martín, nice to meet you or un gusto (because it's the first time we talk, :-)). Congratulations for your great edits at WIkipedia. About the template, I like it; about the tagging, it was me making some mistakes under thinking for a right one; about La Paternal (my neighbourhood!!!), I considered it as low importance because 1) if a capital city must be of high importance, 2) a tourist zone (like Palermo) must be of mid/high importance, 3) other neighbourhoods must be of mid/low importance, but I think it's wrong; about GA or A-Class, other mistake by myself. Best regards, and hope to talk to you more frequently. Mxcatania 13:08, 10 August 2006 (UTC)

PS: Martín, I want to compose a subproject Argentine Football inside WPArgentina. Not sure about to start. Don't know if you like football, but for me it would be great. You can help!
Thanks for your comments - of course I like football (tengo la camiseta puesta!). But living in the UK it's so hard to get a real feel for what's going on so I don't think I'm the best person. I'm always happy to help where I can though, and I think there are enough other editors to make it a success. Martín (saying/doing) 13:56, 10 August 2006 (UTC)
Hi! About the WikiProject, I want to do a SubProject, not a WikiProject. I don't know, maybe it's a neologism by myself, but the SubProject Argentine Football (inside WikiProject Argentina) would be nice stuff. About the banner, I support your idea. Best, Mxcatania 15:05, 14 August 2006 (UTC)

Basque CountryEdit

Hi Mtiedemann, I saw that Basque Country needed disambiguation at Wikipedia:Disambiguation pages with links/2006-07-17 dump, and took up the task. I was not totally familiar with the issue so I did quite a lot of reading, and looked at the history of the pages to understand what the issues were with it. I'm still not totally confident that I'm always making the right dab, but the disambiguation has to be done. For example, there are many times that I would like to refer to a region that Basque people live in currently (but that is not totally congruent with the Autonomous region of Spain, or the historical territory) and so it makes it difficult. -- Jeff3000 13:58, 13 August 2006 (UTC)

Another problem is that the Basque Country (autonomous community) page's history section does not give a good history from around the 16th century where the Basque community was divided as part of Spain and France, but basically functioned as an autonomous regions in both countries. Instead the history mainly starts after Franco. -- Jeff3000 15:17, 13 August 2006 (UTC)
Well I won't claim to be an expert but it's really complicated! Part of the controversy is about a Basque sense of identity and nationhood itself. Modern Basque nationalists like to draw parallels with ancient traditions and the Kingdom of Navarre. Other presumably 'pro-Madrid' editors have taken pains to mention, even where not really relevant, that the symbols of Basque nationhood and the words used to describe Basque institutions were largely invented by Arana in the early 20th century, and there is perhaps a truth to the fact that Basques were more interested in local power and language, than race and nationhood and geography. Naturally it is much more complicated than either extreme and, more relevant to my own original point, much of land-owning, Catholic and conservative Navarre and Álava were often at odds with mountainous and outward-facing Gipuzkoa and Bizkaia. So they were largely on different sides in the 19th century Carlist wars and again in the Civil War. Navarre is very polarised to this day. So I think it's rather hard to attempt a history of the southern Basque Country over that period without straying into even more controversial areas. For the Northern Basque Country, the major incident was the French Revolution where regional identity was suppressed. The provinces' autonomy and fueros were ended at that time. Martín (saying/doing) 16:01, 13 August 2006 (UTC)

AfD Nomination: Donal BlaneyEdit

An article that you have been involved in editing, Donal Blaney, has been listed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Donal Blaney. Please look there to see why this is, if you are interested in it not being deleted. Thank you.

Basque CountryEdit

The Basque Country is only an autonomous community. Navarre is not Basque, and France less. To say that Euskal Herria exists belongs to fools. To say that Euskal Herria is a nationality belongs to ignoramuses. To give more importance to not official instead of to the official thing is intolerable. The things must be oficialiting. Is it Scotland a nation? Is Alsace a German territory? I am very tiring of lies and falsehoods. Satesclop 13:20, 13 October 2006 (UTC)

¿Sabía usted que la gran mayoría de navarros, y vasco-franceses repudian Euskadi? El País Vasco es lo que es, y me parece muy bien que haya un artículo sobre el territorio histórico vasco, pero nada más. Euskadi no es una nación ni una nacionalidad. El sistema de división administrativa de España es muy diferente al del Reino Unido. Lo vasco es español, no francés. Cuando yo tenga tiempo le revertiré. Saludos. Satesclop 13:37, 13 October 2006 (UTC)

Liberal UnionistsEdit

Hi Martin, I see that we now have two categories for Liberal Unionist politicianss.

They ought to be merged; any preferences about which one should stay? see Category talk:UK Liberal Unionist Party politicians --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 21:45, 30 October 2006 (UTC)


Hi and thanks for the heads-up. I am a bit out of it at the moment but my initial thought is that I created it without 'Party' to encompass that time when it couldn't really be called a Party, but probably most of those became formal Liberal Unionists, so it's a moot point. I don't have a strong opinion, except that they should be merged - I'll say so at the talk page. Martín (saying/doing) 09:30, 31 October 2006 (UTC)

ArgentinidadEdit

Los invito a participar de Argentinidad, un proyecto wiki que usa el mismo software que wikipedia, y por ende funciona exactamente igual. Es una wikipedia de la argentina con un punto de vista patriótico-nacional.

Aquí se podrán crear artículos sobre la cultura, geografía, economía, historia, gente y demás de la Argentina, con la condición de que el punto de vista NO sea neutral, sino argentino . Este no es un lugar para la militancia política o social, sólo para escribir y "hacer algo". Para eso estamos, para los que nos cansamos de que insulten al País y ver como el mundo de nosotros ríe. Siempre se dijo, "hay que hacer algo" pero nadie lo hizo. Es dificil hacer algo, nadie por sí solo va a levantarse un día y transformar a la Patria en una potencia mundial, o expulsar a los ingleses de las Malvinas, pero no por eso se va a "hacer nada". Espero que te unas al proyecto, cordialmente

re: Category:Date of birth missingEdit

Good afternoon. Per the discussion about privacy concerns expressed at Wikipedia:Biographies of living persons#Privacy of birthdays, date of birth should generally not be added to the biographies of living non-public or semi-public figures. So far, that policy has been interpreted fairly strictly with a pretty high bar being set for the definition of "public figures" who are assumed to have given up their rights to privacy.

By the same token, we should not be adding Category:Date of birth missing to articles unless we have made the case that the person meets the "public figures" threshold. Otherwise, we're just baiting new users into adding content even though the community has already said that we shouldn't include that particular data point. Category:Year of birth missing is okay but the exact date is often not. Thanks for your help. Rossami (talk) 21:35, 24 November 2006 (UTC)

DeletionEdit

Hi Martin, just a quick note to say that I deleted a redirect you created yesterday.

It was Thomas Henderson (Scotland), redirecting to Thomas Henderson (Labour politician). I changed all the links to bypass the redirects, and then deleted Thomas Henderson (Scotland) because there are two Scottish politicians of similar era called Thomas Henderson: the other is Thomas Henderson (1874-1951) (see Thomas Henderson for the full list).

Hope that's OK! --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 08:45, 2 December 2006 (UTC)

Picture ChangesEdit

Hi. Now it's something that Wikipedia stresses over and over again and even I get bored of it but if it's possiable to upload your pictures onto Wikimedia Commons that would be brilliant. All images on wikipedia should be from wiki commons but quite a few get through. I've not "deleted" the images that you added but i've re-done 2 (including the Fairfield Halls one [eg.image:FairfeildHalls.jpg has now changed to image:FairfieldHalls2.jpg so on]). Thank you for reading and if you have any questions involving Wikimedia Commons just ask me.

Plus I have seen that you add many pictures to articles involving the borough of Croydon, so while on Commons add a category:Croydon to the bottom so it's easier to find these fantastic images! Pafcool2 19:07, 23 June 2007 (UTC)

Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on Eric Fletcher (skateboarder), by Dubkiller (talk · contribs), another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. The tag claims that it should be speedily deleted because Eric Fletcher (skateboarder) seems to be about a person, group of people, band, club, company, or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not assert the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

Replaceable fair use Image:Geraint_Davies.jpgEdit

Thanks for uploading Image:Geraint_Davies.jpg. I notice the 'image' page specifies that the image is being used under fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first fair use criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed image could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this image is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the image description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original Replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace the fair use image by finding a freely licensed image of its subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or a similar) image under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our fair use criteria. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that fair use images which could be replaced by free-licensed alternatives will be deleted 7 days after this notification, per our Fair Use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Rettetast 23:04, 20 July 2007 (UTC)


Speedy deletion of Sarah McCarthy-FryEdit

Please do not make personal attacks. Wikipedia has a strict policy against personal attacks. Attack pages and images are not tolerated by Wikipedia and are speedily deleted. Users who continue to create or repost such pages and images in violation of our biographies of living persons policy will be blocked from editing Wikipedia. Thank you.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the article (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the article's talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Tren de la CostaEdit

Hey Mtiedemann, how you doing, here Moebiusuibeom-en, author and "refiner" of several articles in wikipedia.

I have a question about the last phrase in the Tren de la Costa article, do we have to be so specific about the line being "not been wholly successful", I believe we should water down a bit this part cause it's not really giving the right message, first of all, the line has not been "wholly successful" TO WHOM, the original 100,000 journeys each weekend is really astronomical for a Light Rail line, entering heavy metro numbers here, (see Thomas the Tank Engine) while the drop to 150,000 a month truly "is not wholly successful", but for a light rail line the numbers are not all that bad, daily ridership comes out to 5.357 which is low but according to rail standards, anything 5.000 or above is what you need for a system of this kind to be operable, yes, almost in the border line, but are those numbers correct, been there several times in the last year and found it to be filled-up on Thursday and Saturdays @ all hours, with the cafes down the line also filled up, furthermore, an excess of empty shops may just be the case of an excess of shops in the area!

I know the private operators / private investors may have financial problems and wanting a bailout, but this may just also be greed, Nevertheless, here is my wording suggestion:

The line has not been wholly successful and has seen a large drop in passenger numbers since its opening. In 1995 there were around 100,000 journeys each weekend, but by 2005 there were just 150,000 a month, a third of which are foreign tourists, however, the the current economic upswing may well reverse this trend.

+ include Clarin's article link.

Hope you agree, let me know your thoughts! Cheers - Moebiusuibeom-en (talk) 14:24, 14 January 2008 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:Coopbanklogo.gif)Edit

  Thanks for uploading Image:Coopbanklogo.gif. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. NotifyBot (talk) 12:30, 17 April 2008 (UTC)

Architecture of CroydonEdit

Can I ask you why you put a cleanup notice on the top of this article please, aswell as a neutrality of a section, future developments please. Thank You from Pafcool2 (talk) 13:05, 9 May 2008 (UTC)

Also John Ruskin was raised in South London so therfore is local. And he also wrote alot about architecture which is why I got confused Pafcool2 (talk) 13:13, 9 May 2008 (UTC)
At the time of Ruskin's birth, Croydon was not in London and the concept of South London did not exist. Travel time from his family's homes in Sydenham and Dulwich would have been large. Ruskin himself was embarrassed with his local connections to Croydon. However it is absolutely right to say he had local connections and spent much time in Croydon. His mother was from the town and both his parents are buried in Shirley. Ruskin is a very major figure in the arts, heritage and architecture, with local connections, hence he has been picked for this.
I put a POV check on that section because I feel it is written from a perspective that development and retail are good, and reads as an advert. "...some of South London's most ambitious non-residential schemes in the past ten years" is an example. "Improvements will see Queen's Gardens completely re-modeled" is another: there have been many voices in Croydon saying that these plans destroy Queen's Gardens and the setting of the Town Hall - that's why there was a major planning inquiry, which could yield sources of support and opposition. The fact is that many of these schemes have not been built, are opposed by sections of Croydon's community and have not demonstrated market support.
Also, I find that the section on Croydon Gateway appears to suggest Stanhope's scheme is an obstacle to be overcome: "The problem is that Stanhope already owns part of the site..." etc. If you speak to the Warehouse Theatre or those opposed to the Arena, they would say that Stanhope's ownership is the better scenario, not a 'problem'. In any case, this should be presented as rival potential developments with supporters and detractors, and in the context of a site riven with similar disputes over 40 years, hence why nothing ever gets built there... Sorry for not putting this on the page yet, I was going to write something more considered there. Martín (saying/doing) 13:25, 9 May 2008 (UTC)

Radstock Co-opEdit

Hello Martin, I left a question for you at Talk:Radstock Co-operative Society. --Hroðulf (or Hrothulf) (Talk) 20:47, 10 May 2008 (UTC)

Musselburgh Co-opEdit

I notice that you posted that Musselburgh demutualised. Have you a link to a news story, (or can you suggest one I can look up in my local library) as I would like to read more about it, and update other affected Wikipedia articles? Sadly all that Google gave me was some links to early chapters in their demutualising saga. --Hroðulf (or Hrothulf) (Talk) 21:35, 10 May 2008 (UTC)

This is the only online reference I can find but it's a secondary source. I have read this in the Co-operative News and will look through my copies during the week. I am interested to see that the articles are not on the News' website which may mean there is something going on behind the scenes.Martín (saying/doing) 23:48, 10 May 2008 (UTC)
Thanks. That is indeed strange, as some old stories about the 2005 injunction are on the Co-operative News website. I will be interested if more emerges. I will ask my library if they get Co-op News. --Hroðulf (or Hrothulf) (Talk) 06:24, 11 May 2008 (UTC)

I have created an article, Musselburgh and Fisherrow Co-operative Society, but I have left a {{dubious}} tag against the successful demutualisation until we get a source such as Co-op News or the Edinburgh Evening News. You are more than welcome to call by and help out with the article. --Hroðulf (or Hrothulf) (Talk) 06:56, 13 May 2008 (UTC)

In the News of 30 October to 13 November, p.7, there's an article entitled 'Co-ops UK rap for former M&F Co-op' which quotes Pauline Green as saying that the memorandum and articles of M & F Scotland Ltd clearly show the organisation is not a co-operative and, therefore, cannot be members of Co-ops UK. This is because voting is now based on shares held, not OMOV. 65% of the shares are held by one individual and his family. In the letters pages of 27 November to 11 December, Co-ops UK responds to a letter from a (former) M&F member which specifically calls the change 'demutualisation'. Co-ops UK suggested they were still supporting members who fought the demutualisation and would continue to monitor the situation. UK.coop still lists the society as a co-operative however. Martín (saying/doing) 09:35, 13 May 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for chipping in and editing the article so quickly. Your research implies, but does not say explicitly, that a transfer of undertakings to M & F (Scotland) Ltd has already taken place. Clearly joint stock companies are allowed in Co-operatives UK if they have constitutions that allow co-operative principles - many employee-owned companies are in this bracket. However it sounds like M&F has no such special rules! I would imagine from that letters page that, six months further on, unless there is some behind-the-scenes legal action going on, the demutualisation is a done deal, and we should rewrite the article in the past tense. --Hroðulf (or Hrothulf) (Talk) 10:31, 13 May 2008 (UTC)

RE: Architecture of CroydonEdit

I understand what you said last time, but what I wrote about Ruskin Square/Croydon Gateway is that the reason why the development has been delayed is because there is a problem between the two different firms. Personally I believe that with The O2 Arena so close the arena is not viable for Croydon and so I actually do support Stanhope's alternative plan. If you ask me maybe the Fairfield Halls should be moved onto the site, as it does need a new building and maybe it could get some better acts with a newer high tech building. Pafcool2 (talk) 12:02, 11 May 2008 (UTC)

Fieldway (ward)Edit

Why does Fieldway (ward) return only two councillors to Croydon Council and not three like most other wards in the area? Although I am happy that the BNP don't have a seat in Croydon! Pafcool2 (talk) 12:12, 11 May 2008 (UTC)

Until 2002 quite a few wards in Croydon were two member wards. Then the Boundary Commission decide that they wanted to make all wards three-member where they could across London. But sometimes to do so would involve pulling areas together that don't fit well. Meanwhile the New Addington estate is getting smaller in terms of electors. It had five councillors but could only justify four. So to make it into two 3-member wards you would have to include areas off the estate. It was easier to make New Addington and Fieldway both 2-member wards. In Bromley there are some wards under 3, in the countryside bits around Orpington.

Proposed deletion of Stephen EyreEdit

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Stephen Eyre, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.

Invitation to Wikipedia meetup in LondonEdit

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!

Oxford Wikimania 2010 and Wikimedia UK v2.0 NoticeEdit

Hi,

As a regularly contributing UK Wikipedian, we were wondering if you wanted to contribute to the Oxford bid to host the 2010 Wikimania conference. Please see here for details of how to get involved, we need all the help we can get if we are to put in a compelling bid.

We are also in the process of forming a new UK Wikimedia chapter to replace the soon to be folded old one. If you are interested in helping shape our plans, showing your support or becoming a future member or board member, please head over to the Wikimedia UK v2.0 page and let us know. We plan on holding an election in the next month to find the initial board, who will oversee the process of founding the company and accepting membership applications. They will then call an AGM to formally elect a new board who after obtaining charitable status will start the fund raising, promotion and active support for the UK Wikimedian community for which the chapter is being founded.

You may also wish to attend the next London meet-up at which both of these issues will be discussed. If you can't attend this meetup, you may want to watch Wikipedia:Meetup, for updates on future meets.

We look forward to hearing from you soon, and we send our apologies for this automated intrusion onto your talk page!

Gerald Gardiner, Baron GardinerEdit

I see that some years ago you edited the article on Gerald Gardiner, Baron Gardiner, adding the postnominal letters KC. I have changed this to QC since he died during the reign of Queen Elizabeth II. I think it would be normal to give him his correct designation at the time of his death rather than at the time of his appointment as King's Counsel. However, I thought I ought to bring this to your attention in case you knew of some reason why it was more appropriate to retain the letters KC.--Oxonian2006 (talk) 16:30, 18 September 2008 (UTC)

non-profit mutual?Edit

Re: this edit, please correct me if I'm wrong, (and I probably am wrong), but I thought a "non-profit mutual" was an oxymoron - i.e. I thought the aim of a mutual was to make a profit to "pay dividends" (or provide some other form of return) to their members. The aim of a Friendly Society is to provide services, and find a way to fund that. Your thoughts? Cheers, Pdfpdf (talk) 14:22, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

London Wikimedia FundraiserEdit

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) 23:31, 12 December 2010 (UTC)

Wikimedia Stories ProjectEdit

Aloha!

My name is Victor and I work with the Wikimedia Foundation, the non-profit organization that supports Wikipedia. We're chronicling the inspiring stories of the Wikipedia community around the world, including those from readers, editors, and donors. Stories are absolutely essential for any non-profit to persuade new people to support the cause, and we know the vast network of people who use Wikipedia have so much to share.

I find stories that drive our annual fundraising efforts. It's important to convey the incredible diversity of people who've come to rely upon Wikipedia every day.

I'd really like the opportunity to interview you to tell your story, with the possibility of using it in our materials, on our community websites, or as part of this year’s fundraiser to encourage others to support Wikipedia.

I will be in Buenos Aires from the 10th - 11th of March 2012.

I'm hoping you will elaborate on your story with me. Please let me know if you're inclined to take part in the Wikipedia Stories Project!

Thank you,

ArbCom elections are now open!Edit

Hi,
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.

Latin American 10,000 Challenge inviteEdit

Hi. The Wikipedia:WikiProject Latin America/The 10,000 Challenge ‎ has recently started, based on the UK/Ireland Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge and Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/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 Brazil, Mexico, Peru and Argentina 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. At some stage we hope to run some contests to benefit Latin American content, a destubathon perhaps, aimed at reducing the stub count would be a good place to start, based on the current Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The Africa Destubathon. If you would like to see this happening for Latin America, and see potential in this attracting more interest and editors for the country/countries you work on please sign up and being contributing to the challenge! This is a way we can target every country of Latin America, and steadily vastly improve the encyclopedia. We need numbers to make this work so consider signing up as a participant!♦ --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 00:43, 27 October 2016 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of File:Nuñez-Buenos Aires map.pngEdit

 

The file File:Nuñez-Buenos Aires map.png has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Orphaned map.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated files}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the file's talk page.

Please consider addressing the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated files}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist.
