Orphaned non-free image File:Flag of Provo, Utah (2015).png

 

Thanks for uploading File:Flag of Provo, Utah (2015).png. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image 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 images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in section F5 of the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. --B-bot (talk) 18:48, 31 January 2019 (UTC)

No comments on pass

Dear SounderBruce,

Recently you mentioned that I passed the Wikipedia page Washington State Convention Center without any comments: Unexpirienced editor passed my GA nomination without comment. I'm not sure what you mean as I did leave comments on the nomination talk page Talk:Washington State Convention Center/GA1 and if I did do anything wrong, please inform me.

Regards, Berrely

@Berrely: I'd recommend that you look at the Good article criteria and review articles against is (using a provided template) with prose comments in a separate section. A GA review, especially for an article as long as mine, needs to be more than just a rubber-stamp. When a review is hastily done like this, the article has to be resubmitted and moved down to the bottom of the queue, which means an even longer wait. SounderBruce 23:24, 30 January 2019 (UTC)
@SounderBruce: I understand if you would like I could take away the good article tag and do a more lengthy review before adding it.

Regards, Berrely

@Berrely: Now that you've already granted the article premature GA status, it can't be changed unless a reassessment is done. Please don't try and do anything that would muddle the process. SounderBruce 01:42, 1 February 2019 (UTC)
@SounderBruce: I understand, I'm very sorry for the inconvience caused. In the future I shall try and be more detailed in my reports, Regards, Berrely. Berrely (talk) 11:45, 3 February 2019 (UTC)

Flag of Provo

Hi, there. I'm the one who uploaded the SVG of the flag of Provo which you requested to be deleted. I'm new to uploading stuff to Wikipedia and I simply wanted to switch the original flag PNG with an SVG so that people could easily download and alter it. I catagorized it as a Fair Use Symbol as I didn't know how to otherwise do it. If you would like to upload the image with the correct information, I can send it to you. Many people including myself would like it to be available in SVG format as opposed to PNG format. — Preceding unsigned comment added by HyperActive1DUK (talkcontribs) 22:10, 3 February 2019 (UTC)

@HyperActive1DUK: Fair use images (e.g. ones you do not own, or don't fall under public domain or a compatible license) must be uploaded locally to Wikipedia using Special:Upload. Wikimedia Commons is only to be used for freely-licensed images. SounderBruce 23:03, 3 February 2019 (UTC)

You need to be an autoconfirmed user in order to upload there. I am not an autoconfirmed user and most likely won't become one. Again, I can send you the file to upload correctly if you want, but I can't do so. — Preceding unsigned comment added by HyperActive1DUK (talkcontribs) 11:59, 4 February 2019 (UTC)

@HyperActive1DUK: I've already saved the Commons copy and can re-upload it to Wikipedia proper once the deletion process is taken care of. I'd just like to know where you got the source data...did you create the SVG yourself in Inkscape/Illustrator based on the raster, or did you use pre-existing vector assets? SounderBruce 06:23, 5 February 2019 (UTC)

I created the SVG from scratch in Illustrator with the provided PNG as a reference picture. — Preceding unsigned comment added by HyperActive1DUK (talkcontribs) 09:28, 5 February 2019 (UTC)

Hello, SounderBruce. It has been over six months since you last edited the Articles for Creation submission or Draft page you started, "Jarrett Walker".

In accordance with our policy that Wikipedia is not for the indefinite hosting of material deemed unsuitable for the encyclopedia mainspace, the draft has been nominated for deletion. If you plan on working on it further, or editing it to address the issues raised if it was declined, simply edit the submission and remove the {{db-afc}}, {{db-draft}}, or {{db-g13}} code.

If your submission has already been deleted by the time you get there, and you wish to retrieve it, you can request its undeletion by following the instructions at this link. An administrator will, in most cases, restore the submission so you can continue to work on it.

Thanks for your submission to Wikipedia, and happy editing. JMHamo (talk) 11:12, 4 February 2019 (UTC)

https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=South_Lake_Union_Streetcar&oldid=882148681

Bruce, I cannot find any counter-indication to including an updated accessdate for a linked news article. is this a MOS thing you can point to? Your rollback also overwrote a grammer correction. Please consider working with what I write rather than bulk rollback as you have done to most of my attempts to contribute these past few days.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:Citation_Style_1#Access_date


Jwfowble (talk) 04:27, 7 February 2019 (UTC)

@Jwfowble: The citation in question has no URL, thus no accessdate. Instances of an offline source with an accessdate bring up flags and are placed in this tracking category, so we'd like to avoid that for a WP:GAN like this article. Look, I don't want to undo all of your edits, but there has to be consistency with the existing or majority text—otherwise readers get confused at the switch in styles. SounderBruce 04:48, 7 February 2019 (UTC)
My mistake, I was copying a reference and didn't realize my template didn't have the URL I was looking at. I have now added the url. Thank you for also showing me how to properly do a named citation. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jwfowble (talkcontribs) 04:55, 7 February 2019 (UTC)
Bruce, please stop gatekeeping or use the talk feature instead of reverting everything. It's better to get 1 of 2 columns with data until the daily ridership is available, which is what I stated in the talk section. Jwfowble (talk) 07:06, 7 February 2019 (UTC)
@Jwfowble: There is a note on the talk page. Since Wikipedia is not supposed to be a statistics repository, having up-to-date ridership data is not a priority. We have to aim for accuracy and consistency, rather than speed and carelessness. SounderBruce 07:08, 7 February 2019 (UTC)
Nobody is doing speed and carelessness. As the data for the two lines is reported in aggregate to the historical source, it's unlikely to be reported separated out like that anymore. Again, it's better to have some data, with sources linked, than to keep leaving ridership blank. Jwfowble (talk) 07:33, 7 February 2019 (UTC)
@Jwfowble: You have grossly exceeded WP:3RR, which means you are liable to be blocked for edit warring, regardless of the merits of each side. Can you cite any guideline that would override the one Bruce is citing (WP:NOTSTATS)?--Jasper Deng (talk) 07:41, 7 February 2019 (UTC)
@Jasper Deng: I saw a notification about 3RR, but I've only used the revert/undo once. I think the majority of my edits are being undid/reverted by SounderBruce here, who has used that feature 5 in the article. I've explained in the talk section why the traditional source of statistics appears to be for the combined system this past. As ridership data has been important to include for the past decade, I see no reason to not include the annual ridership data that's available now, particularly if a different source is likely to be needed going forward.
@Jwfowble: Please WP:INDENT your comments correctly instead of just putting them on the left (I have done it for you for the second time). I shouldn't spend too much time on this, but reverting edits in part also counts as a revert. The point is, since you do not have consensus to insert that information, the status quo (which was without that information) has to be maintained until then. See WP:BRD. Consistency is just as important as completeness of information.--Jasper Deng (talk) 08:35, 7 February 2019 (UTC)
@Jasper Deng:I've had far more of my good-faith attempts to add to the knowledge base here reverted in the interest of making things less accessible. A URL to a newspaper article is worth keeping for ease of access. In the SLU article talk page Bruce said he'd prefer an "updated version of the SDOT Streetcar Report, which should include daily ridership" and yet I make an attempt to use that ridership data on the other streetcar line, first hill, and it gets reverted by bruce as well. I'm trying to incorporate the two sources I've found for 2017 ridership for the separate lines (something that is combined here in this page, but commented out) and it seems like there's repeatedly an excuse to exclude the published data. If it's a formatting thing, lets' talk it out, but this wholesale reversion is wasting a lot of my research time.
@Jwfowble: A good place to start would be to address Bruce's concerns directly instead of merely rehashing your previous arguments, which won't do anything to convince him.--Jasper Deng (talk) 08:54, 7 February 2019 (UTC)
@SounderBruce:Ok, Bruce, if a URL resolves to a valid article, even if the title may be changed, is it really destructive to have the citation for the newspaper article also go to the URL, payall or not? With scientific journals, that is OK even though they're more severely paywalled than the seattle times.
Also, if we're not going to get separated streetcar ridership numbers from the APTA reports (2017 they just have combined numbers), can I at least update the hidden section of the table with this SDOT data for the single value we do have that is separated, the annual ridership? I think consistency of sources is admirable, but looked at the APTA database and they changed the 2017 table to the combined data (and even combined the prior year 2016 values) so I don't think they'll be providing what you seek for weekly ridership per line going forward. https://www.apta.com/resources/statistics/Documents/Ridership/2017-Q4-Ridership-APTA.pdf Jwfowble (talk) 09:14, 7 February 2019 (UTC)

Hello SounderBruce. Am I able to locate the paragraph that I added yesterday that has been removed? I'd like to see if I can edit it to salvage some of it for the Wallingford, Seattle Wikipedia page.

@Salmonwalt: You can access previous edits using the "History" tab on the article, then clicking on "diff". Please do not re-add any of your content without reading Wikipedia's policies on citations, scope, and the Manual of Style.

I’ve reworded the last paragraphs, which personally I feel is being a bit pedantic.

WikiCup 2019 March newsletter

And so ends the first round of the competition. Everyone with a positive score moves on to Round 2. With 56 contestants qualifying, each group in Round 2 contains seven contestants, with the two leaders from each group due to qualify for Round 3 as well as the top sixteen remaining contestants.

Our top scorers in Round 1 were:

  •   L293D, a WikiCup newcomer, led the field with ten good articles on submarines for a total of 357 points.
  •   Adam Cuerden, a WikiCup veteran, came next with 274 points, mostly from eight featured pictures, restorations of artwork.
  •   MPJ-DK, a wrestling enthusiast, was in third place with 263 points, garnered from a featured list, five good articles, two DYKs and four GARs.
  •   Usernameunique came next at 243, with a featured article and a good article, both on ancient helmets.
  •   Squeamish Ossifrage was in joint fifth place with 224 points, mostly garnered from bringing the 1937 Fox vault fire to featured article status.
  •   Ed! was also on 224, with an amazing number of good article reviews (56 actually).

These contestants, like all the others, now have to start scoring points again from scratch. Between them, contestants completed reviews on 143 good articles, one hundred more than the number of good articles they claimed for, thus making a substantial dent in the review backlog. Well done all!

Remember that any content promoted after the end of Round 1 but before the start of Round 2 can be claimed in Round 2. Invitations for collaborative writing efforts or any other discussion of potentially interesting work is always welcome on the WikiCup talk page. Remember, if two or more WikiCup competitors have done significant work on an article, all can claim points. If you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is at good article candidates, a featured process, or anywhere else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews.

If you want to help out with the WikiCup, please do your bit to keep down the review backlogs! Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. Good luck!

Your GA nomination of MLS Cup 2009

The article MLS Cup 2009 you nominated as a good article has been placed on hold  . The article is close to meeting the good article criteria, but there are some minor changes or clarifications needing to be addressed. If these are fixed within 7 days, the article will pass; otherwise it may fail. See Talk:MLS Cup 2009 for issues which need to be addressed.

MLS Cup 2018

Sir,

I restored my edit to the MLS Cup 2018 article on grounds that "played indoors" was relevant to the game where the weather outdoors was not relevant to the game. The weather outside during the game would have resulted in a materially different outcome; the game itself was not played in 40-degree conditions; and I was there - it was not "overcast," there was a full heavy and sustained rainshower going on outside the stadium, which again would have affected the game.

Saw you re-reverted. Whatever. I guess I have to be part of the approved-editors club to make a change since the edit you're preserving is factually incorreect ("overcast" is not the same as "rainshowers"). I don't care. Have your playground all to yourself. Dkendr (talk) 01:03, 6 March 2019 (UTC)
@Dkendr: First of all, Assume good faith on the part of editors. I'm going off what is in the match reports and other cited sources, per WP:V, and precedent set by almost all soccer and sports articles on the site. As the article has passed WP:GA review and been watched by many other editors who didn't bring up such an issue, there doesn't seem to be a consensus to change things. Mind discussing instead next time? SounderBruce 07:40, 6 March 2019 (UTC)

Hello. I am responding to your message about including more citations and will be adding those in the coming days. I am editing the Interstate 90 Floating Bridges Wikipedia Page for a class project.

Request for input at FAC

Hey Bruce,

I've put The Infinity Gauntlet up for FAC, but the nomination hasn't attracted much interest. I know it's outside your normal area of editing ,but if you have the time and the inclination to add your comments to Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/The Infinity Gauntlet/archive2, I would appreciate it. Thanks, Argento Surfer (talk) 20:39, 19 March 2019 (UTC)

Amazon HQ2 GAN

Hello. I think at this point in time, Amazon HQ2 may be eligible for a Good Article nomination. The whole "controversy" aspect has settled (unless Virginians decide to throw a coup d'état too but of course that's not likely). If you concur as the article's creator then I'll nominate it. Peace. Trillfendi (talk) 21:02, 20 March 2019 (UTC)

@Trillfendi: I don't think that the article currently includes all of the necessary aspects of the bidding process (including details from each finalist, an overview of notable bids that failed to be finalists, and the bid incentives provided by each finalist) and it currently reads very roughly because of the way it was constructed in piecemeal fashion. I would also caution against nominating it prematurely, or at least until construction begins on the physical HQ, as plans are not necessarily stable until then. SounderBruce 02:06, 21 March 2019 (UTC)
That’s true. Unfortunately many of the finalists who had absolutely no chance still have their bids and financial details of it fortified because they want to use it again (which makes no sense if you think about it). But I guess over time it will eventually be brought to light. Trillfendi (talk) 16:49, 24 March 2019 (UTC)

Bellingham Skyline Image

This Skyline image on the Bellingham, Washington wiki article is outdated and needs to be replaced. Fernando Gonzalez 03:25, 30 March 2019 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Gonzafer001 (talkcontribs)

@Gonzafer001: It can only be replaced if a free-use copy is found, either through the photographer and/or copyright holder uploading one to Wikimedia Commons, or the rights holder donating it through the OTRS process. A five-year delay in updating the skyline picture isn't a big deal, given that at thumbnail size Bellingham would look almost entirely identical. SounderBruce 03:30, 30 March 2019 (UTC)

So when another large development appears, for example, “Fairhaven Towers”, or “Bellingham Stateside” which is in development. Or when the skyline changes significantly, that’s when it will be a good time to change it? Fernando Gonzalez 03:35, 30 March 2019 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Gonzafer001 (talkcontribs)

@Gonzafer001: Again, only if there is a free-use image to use. There's no point in rushing things for incredibly minor changes. SounderBruce 03:39, 30 March 2019 (UTC)

Art+Feminism, Jacob Lawrence Gallery, Saturday, April 6th, 1-5 PM

 
For more info see
the meetup page
for Art+Feminism
.
Wikipedia’s gender trouble is well-documented. In a 2011 survey, the Wikimedia Foundation found that less than 10% of its contributors were women. While the reasons for the gender gap are up for debate, the practical effect of this disparity is not: content is skewed by the lack of representation from women.

Let’s change that.

To help change this, the Jacob Lawrence Gallery is continuing a series of Edit-a-thons to improve Wikipedia's coverage of womxn and gender non-binary artists of color.

Childcare, snacks from local businesses, and editing tutorials will be provided.

All you need to bring is your laptop, power cord, and ideas. No previous Wikipedia experience required!

Everyone is welcome. Access to UW wifi will be provided for non-UW affiliated participants.

Please create a Wikipedia account before the event.

RSVP through this Facebook event link.

When: Saturday, Apr. 6, 2019, 1–5 PM
Where: Jacob Lawrence Gallery, Art Building #132, 1915 NE Chelan Ln, Seattle, WA 98105
Event Sponsors: Jacob Lawrence Gallery, School of Art + Art History + Design
Event Page: Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon
Parking: Free parking is normally available on campus after 12pm on Saturdays.

Draft:National Veterans Memorial and Museum

I've been working on List of national memorials of the United States so I came across your draft here. I think this is definitely a notable topic and should be moved to mainspace; I added some information and new sources to it but let me know what your thoughts on the article are! Would be nice to bluelink it before I get that to FLC. Reywas92Talk 07:05, 12 April 2019 (UTC)

@Reywas92: I've been sitting on that one for a while, but I think I'll have time and motivation to finish it for a potential Memorial Day DYK. It does need some copyediting, as another editor came in and added content without total adherence to MOS. Good luck on the FLC. SounderBruce 07:08, 12 April 2019 (UTC)

Access dates for print sources

Hi. Regarding this edit, it's my understanding that access dates are only needed for sources that might be altered over time. The documentation of Template:Cite book says that access dates are "[n]ot required for linked documents that do not change", such as published books and research papers. Because the Google Books and HathiTrust links point to scans of physical sources, including access dates for them does not have any utility IMO. Lord Bolingbroke (talk) 21:10, 13 April 2019 (UTC)

Would you object if I restore my edit? Lord Bolingbroke (talk) 02:49, 22 April 2019 (UTC)
@Lord Bolingbroke: The scans could change (either being replaced or taken down) over time, so I'd rather have a date that can be referenced when needing to search through the Wayback Machine. It also keeps things consistent and prevents the article from being added to a "URL but no accessdate" tracking category. SounderBruce 02:56, 22 April 2019 (UTC)
