A long long time ago you expanded author David BenedictusEdit

and now after many many additional edits the article 'flows' strangely. In particular you had added a paragraph beginning:

At the time of the book's publication ...

in what is now section Life for author David_Benedictus.

At that time of editing, the most recent newsy event was that the author had written Return to the Hundred Acre Wood. It would seem then that your sentence was referring to that book. But the article mentions other books and works between the lede and this now abrupt sentence.

It would be good of you to make clear to this dull reader which book is being referred to. Perhaps the third/fourth paragraphs currently under 'Life' ought to be moved to their own section and specifically about his 2009 book? Shenme (talk) 01:39, 13 November 2018 (UTC)

@Shenme: I'll take a look at it. I agree it reads oddly now. It was indeed the publicity over his Pooh sequel that prompted me to edit the article - and the that I had played chess with him a few years earlier when we were both members of Dulwich Chess Club!-- Pawnkingthree (talk) 13:41, 13 November 2018 (UTC)

Hey, do you know how to transfer files to the Commons? I cam across this photo of Endo which is on the Japanese Wikipedia but not on the Commons (as far as I can tell). I figured we'd be having an article on him before too long. We did have an image before but it was deleted.-- Pawnkingthree (talk) 18:43, 30 January 2019 (UTC)

You mean EnHo maybe? Heh. I thought only I did that. It is strange. I didn't think it was possible to only have an image on one language wiki. Couldn't figure it out. You could copy it to wiki commons as it is public domain, but that's an iffy issue. the uploader's page says he understand high level English. You might try putting a message on his page. I assume the pic of Enho that was erased wasn't mine? FourTildes (talk) 09:20, 1 February 2019 (UTC)
No it wasn’t one of yours, it was this one. I have seen files on the English Wikipedia that are eligible to be transferred and there is a procedure for it, see Wikipedia:Moving files to Commons. But obviously my lack of Japanese makes it difficult for me figure out how to duplicate that on the ja wiki :) I’ll contact the uploader as you suggest. -- Pawnkingthree (talk) 13:06, 1 February 2019 (UTC)

New vs oldEdit

I would like to know where does it say it's wrong to give advice to so-called "veterans"? As long as they are disruptive, they should be warned by anyone. THE NEW ImmortalWizard(chat) 17:53, 24 February 2019 (UTC)

@ImmortalWizard: In theory yes, but in practice it should be left to admins or editors who are experienced in dispute resolution. It’s just my advice to you, which you are free to ignore, but I have seen over-enthuastic editors leap in at ANI before, and it rarely ends well for them. Your proposal was closed down within an hour - that should tell you that it was not well thought out. If you do too much of that kind of thing, you will get topic banned. I see you have already done good content work, so continue with that instead of hanging around the drama boards. You already have nearly twice as many edits to ANI as I have had in 12 years. It’s just not worth it. We are here to build an encyclopedia after all. Pawnkingthree (talk) 18:20, 24 February 2019 (UTC)

  Hello, I'm Joseph2302. I wanted to let you know that one or more of your recent contributions to Wikipedia:ERRORS have been undone because they did not appear constructive. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. If you have any questions, you can ask for assistance at the help desk. Thanks. Joseph2302 (talk) 13:32, 29 March 2019 (UTC)

@Joseph2302: Sigh... I'm not going to get into a silly edit war over this, but you are just being pointy here.-- Pawnkingthree (talk) 13:36, 29 March 2019 (UTC)

Hi there, that IP address is mine for my mobile phone. And when I do such edits I mention that it is me and my edits are quite obvious. But sumo? The furthest away I’ve gotten from aviation on wikipeida is Audi’s. I don’t know if someone has my IP. OrbitalEnd48401 (talk) 10:54, 12 April 2019 (UTC)

@OrbitalEnd48401: It's possible if you edit logged out that your edits might be shared with others, depending on how stable the IP is. That's why you should always edit logged in if you don't want to get notices about vandalism by other users :) -- Pawnkingthree (talk) 14:40, 12 April 2019 (UTC)
Well no one and I mean no one has access to my mine otherwise their hand goes missing (joke). Well if my IP is being a pain in the future don’t block it to the point we’re i cannot use it. As in I can’t log in to my account from the IP if that makes sense. OrbitalEnd48401 (talk) 14:43, 12 April 2019 (UTC)
@OrbitalEnd48401: Well I'm not an admin so I don't have the power to block IPs anyway. The most I will do if I see a silly edit on an article on my watchlist (like this) is to go and leave a message on the IP's talk page, and of course you are free to delete or ignore it if it wasn't you.-- Pawnkingthree (talk) 15:00, 12 April 2019 (UTC)

Thanks, yer I know nothing about sumo so that comment sounds American. Definitely not me haha OrbitalEnd48401 (talk) 16:06, 12 April 2019 (UTC)

Draft:January 2018 BashoEdit

Hey, I had an idea - tell me what you think. We put the traditional west/east listing in the banzuke section only and then put a traditional "most wins at the top, fewest wins on the bottom" standings table at the end of the article to help show the results. If there were a way to show promotion/relegation results as well similar to what is found on association football articles, that would be great as well, but I know it isn't as cut and dry in sumo often, so not sure if that would work. Royal Autumn Crest (talk) 22:29, 5 May 2019 (UTC)

@Royal Autumn Crest: I'd be open to that idea. I used the table that Bmesd matt did for some of the year in sumo articles for consistency's sake, but we could play around with different formats. We could use colour coding to show promotion and relegation - that should be fairly straightforward.-- Pawnkingthree (talk) 13:36, 6 May 2019 (UTC)
Are you guys working on a draft? I'd like to see it... I've been trying to figure out what a promotions/relegation list would look like if it's done well.Bmesd matt (talk) 13:48, 6 May 2019 (UTC)
@Bmesd matt: We have two on the go, actually. Mine is at Draft:January 2018 Basho and I believe Royal Autumn Crest has started one too.-- Pawnkingthree (talk) 14:20, 6 May 2019 (UTC)
That's really nice. Are you envisioning moving all results to these basho pages, and removing the results from the year in sumo pages and just have links? That might clean things up quite a bit.Bmesd matt (talk) 14:32, 6 May 2019 (UTC)
That's a bit of a way down the line, but if we can get these basho articles fleshed out and moved to the mainspace then that would be a good idea, yes.-- Pawnkingthree (talk) 14:53, 6 May 2019 (UTC)

Representing JapaneseEdit

Do you have thoughts on whether we should be using the common accent marks for rikishi? I have been using the plainest English characters (i.e. "Goeido"), but honestly I prefer the accented (i.e. "Gōeidō") because it helps me "hear" the correct pronunciation. I see that on Draft:January 2018 Basho we've got both styles. Bmesd matt (talk) 14:19, 28 May 2019 (UTC)

Bmesd matt The accents should definitely be used, per our style guide which follows MOS:JAPAN. I admit sometimes I am lazy and don't add them, but best practice to use them!-- Pawnkingthree (talk) 14:23, 28 May 2019 (UTC)
Pawnkingthree okay, updated the latest. Bmesd matt (talk) 15:17, 28 May 2019 (UTC)

Improving the articleEdit

Hi, I was advised by a more experienced wikipedian that it would be fine to list chessmetrics for an AFD or to reach out to you on your talk page. Would you like to improve the article and include non-primary sources and address the concern that this article does not meet general notability guidelines? As I've stated on the PROD template, there's zero in-depth reliable coverage. All sources are primary or give a passing mention only. Cheers, LaceyUF (talk) 23:14, 21 June 2019 (UTC)

@LaceyUF: You may well be correct that it doesn’t meet GNG, but the best venue for determining that is at AfD. A prod is only really for articles where deletion is completely uncontroversial, and I don’t think that applies here as Chessmetrics is mentioned in dozens of our chess biographies and it shouldn’t be deleted without discussion. I will certainly participate in the AfD if you decide to nominate it. Regards, -- Pawnkingthree (talk) 23:33, 21 June 2019 (UTC)
