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)

EnhoEdit

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)
