Do not leave the ‎DS alert for infoboxes on this page. I am aware of the requirements and restrictions and need no reminding. Any placing of the note will be reverted, probably with an appropriate response.


Battle of CrécyEdit

Hi SchroCat. I trust that things are well with you. Just aeads up. You seemed enthusiastic regarding this, so advance notice that it will be going to GAN later today or sometime tomorrow. Still a work in progress, but it is about there GA wise. If you would like to assess it, let me know and I will ping you. I am not attempting to pressure you, but I anticipate an unusual, and possibly unseemly, rush to assess this one so let me know if you would like to be front of the queue. Gog the Mild (talk) 19:42, 18 May 2019 (UTC)

Hi Gog, Thank you very much for the offer, but I have something of a backlog of work to deal with this week, so I am not sure I'll have enough time for a good review. If you could let me know if/when it goes through to PR or FAC, I'll certainly be able to oblige you on that score. Cheers - SchroCat (talk) 16:14, 19 May 2019 (UTC)
(talk page watcher) A rush at GAC?!—there wouldn't be a rush there if Legobot started renting out rooms by the hour, contraceptives supplied :D ——SerialNumber54129 10:16, 22 May 2019 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/Tropical Storm Carlotta (2018)/archive1Edit

Hey, I pinged you about a week ago regarding Carlotta, saying that I was going to continue on. I just wanted to make sure that you hadn't forgotten about it. Thanks, NoahTalk 23:06, 20 May 2019 (UTC)

Hi Hurricane Noah, sorry, you're ping didn't get through to me. I'll put it to the top of my list. I'm a bit snowed under in RL this week, but I've bookmarked the review and I'll find time at the weekend or early next week. Cheers - SchroCat (talk) 08:15, 21 May 2019 (UTC)
Just wanted to let you know I have addressed everything. Someone else made some changes after me, so please let me know if anything else needs adjusted. Thanks, NoahTalk 00:33, 31 May 2019 (UTC)
OK, I’ll be there in a few days. - SchroCat (talk) 12:15, 31 May 2019 (UTC)

article talk page commentEdit

Your Title TK talkpage comment about changing page ranges is unwarranted. No such edits were made in that article. Moreover, your concern is ill-founded. WP allows for varieties of page citations, so long as the formats are consistent in each article. This is IAW WP:CITEVAR. If I see articles which contain mixes of the page ranges (111–2 and/or 111–12, and/or 111–112) I go for the format which looks most established. As the Chicago Manual of Style recommends the two-digit format (111–12), I generally go with the CMS. Accordingly, please remove your comment from Title TK talk. (As a WP:GNOME it is easiest to have a set routine.) Thank you. – S. Rich (talk) 01:15, 24 May 2019 (UTC)

It's entirely warranted and no, I will not remove it. You are working on out of date information and you'd be best to read MOS:NUMRANGE. I don't care what the CMS does or doesn't say: that is not our style manual. - SchroCat (talk) 05:25, 24 May 2019 (UTC)


Rejoice, rejoice, rejoice, to quote St Francis. - SchroCat (talk) 12:13, 31 May 2019 (UTC)

TFA late noticeEdit

Just letting you know that Shergar will be TFA on 24 June. Must have missed reviewing that one.--Wehwalt (talk) 17:18, 4 June 2019 (UTC)

  • Thanks for the heads-up Wehwalt. I think the FAC went through while you were tied up reviewing a few other things, but no problems. Cheers - SchroCat (talk) 18:28, 4 June 2019 (UTC)

Peter Sellers scheduled for TFAEdit

This is to let you know that the Peter Sellers article has been scheduled as today's featured article for July 24, 2019. Please check the article needs no amendments. If you're interested in editing the main page text, you're welcome to do so at Wikipedia:Today's featured article/July 24, 2019, but note that a coordinator will trim the lead to around 1000 characters anyway, so you aren't obliged to do so.

We also suggest that you watchlist Wikipedia:Main Page/Errors up to the day of this TFA. Thanks! Jimfbleak - talk to me? 15:26, 18 June 2019 (UTC)

  • Hi Jim, Of all the articles I've worked on, that would be the one I'd least like to see on the MP (It's something I said to Dank some time ago too). I don't really have anything to do with it nowadays, so I don't know what state it's in; I don't know if Cass keeps an eye on it or not. I'm not sure it represents our best work any more, but if it is decided that it should run, I'll not demur. - SchroCat (talk) 15:52, 18 June 2019 (UTC)
    • I agree with SchroCat, Jim, Sellers, unfortunately, has been one I lost interest in quite some time ago, and I unwatched it. It has been the most fucked about with article (all infobox related) I've had the displeasure to watchlist. I would lay my last breath on there being a whole heap of more fighting on TFA day; sadly, it is one I shall not be monitoring. CassiantoTalk 16:15, 18 June 2019 (UTC)

Yes, that was my thought. Don't want to see a why the collapsed box" argument on the day. Not worth it.♦ Dr. Blofeld 16:32, 18 June 2019 (UTC)

OK, leave it with me, @Cassianto: Jimfbleak - talk to me? 05:55, 19 June 2019 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) Yeah, look, I do have it on my watchlist, and I'd like to think it hasn't degraded too much, but the thought of it being on MP fills me with inertia... Cheers, Ian Rose (talk) 06:03, 19 June 2019 (UTC)
