HiEdit

Hi Roger. Long time, no speak. How are you doing, up north? Derbyshire's not the same without you both, you know. I've been following some of the fallout after WMF's recent desysop and 1yr siteban of a renowned admin with some interest, and noted your past engagement. I presume you were aware of this? Warning: Will take hours of reading. Cheers, Nick Moyes (talk) 13:27, 14 June 2019 (UTC)

PS: I've been helping to give the Teahouse pages a bit of a refresh recently, and noticed how few active 'hosts' we have there who are either clearly young and/or female. It struck me that maybe WP:WOMRED could encourage some of its members to participate there more and thus help newcomers appreciate that Wikipedia isn't just for old white blokes, like me. Anything you can do to encourage more involvement at the Teahouse by experienced female editors would, I'm sure, reflect well on Wikipedia and benefit Women in Red's broad aims.

Wikipedia teachmeetEdit

Ahoy Roger!

Do you ever find yourself back in the wilds of Derbyshire at all, after your move up north? We're looking at arranging a teachmeet here at Derby on the uses of Wikipedia within education, aimed at bringing together people who have used Wikipedia as a teaching and learning tool, and those who are interested in doing so, to share ideas and practice. It's all going to be completely free to attend. I was wondering if you'd be interested in coming along to talk about Women in Red and Wikipedia's role in addressing issues of systemic bias and the gender data gap? Only if you're ever down here, I wouldn't expect you to make a special trip! We're thinking August sometime at the moment.

Ive just returned! Next scheduled trip is maybe July and November. If this looks like a great event then it might justify a trip. Do hope parkywiki is involved. See above. Victuallers (talk) 22:58, 26 June 2019 (UTC)
Have indeed asked Nick_Moyes, waiting on a response! Would be great to get a perspective on Wikipedia and GLAM! Cbderbylib (talk) 10:38, 3 July 2019 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Saly Ruth Ramler died 1993.pngEdit

 

A tag has been placed on File:Saly Ruth Ramler died 1993.png requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a non-free file with a clearly invalid licensing tag; or it otherwise fails some part of the non-free content criteria. If you can find a valid tag that expresses why the file can be used under the fair use guidelines, please replace the current tag with that tag. If no such tag exists, please add the {{Non-free fair use}} tag, along with a brief explanation of why this constitutes fair use of the file. If the file has been deleted, you can re-upload it, but please ensure you place the correct tag on it.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Agnes HungerfordEdit

Thank you for creating the article Agnes Hungerford, Lady Hungerford. Four points though.

  1. when you copy text from one article to another you must follow the guidance in WP:Copying within Wikipedia because the text is copyrighted. Even if it is not (and in some circumstances it may not be) then the guidance explains why it is still best practice to record the copy. This is typically done as described in the guideline by stating in the edit history: Text copied from the Wikipedia article Edward Hungerford (died 1522)
  2. The article Edward Hungerford (died 1522) had a citation style (short inline citations supported by long citations in the References section). Try to keep the the same citation style when adding new citations to an article. Some editors get very worked up about very small breaches to WP:CITEVAR.
  3. There is a tailored citation template for ODNB articles {{cite ODNB}}. It makes formatting ODNB citations easier
    • {{Cite web|url=https://www.oxforddnb.com/view/10.1093/ref:odnb/9780198614128.001.0001/odnb-9780198614128-e-14169|title=Hungerford [other married name Cotell], Agnes, Lady Hungerford (d. 1523), murderer {{!}} Oxford Dictionary of National Biography|website=www.oxforddnb.com|language=en|doi=10.1093/ref:odnb/14169|access-date=2019-06-26}}
      • "Hungerford [other married name Cotell], Agnes, Lady Hungerford (d. 1523), murderer | Oxford Dictionary of National Biography". www.oxforddnb.com. doi:10.1093/ref:odnb/14169. Retrieved 2019-06-26.
    • {{Cite ODNB |last=Daybell |first=James|date=3 January 2008 |title=Hungerford [other married name Cotell], Agnes, Lady Hungerford (d. 1523), murderer |id=14169}}
  4. I have removed the addition of "his second wife" from the lead of Edward Hungerford (died 1522) because it is no more relevant to the lead in his biography than adding his achievements to hers.

BTW it was a colourful family; his son (Agnes's sepson) Walter Hungerford, 1st Baron Hungerford of Heytesbury was the first person found guilty under the Buggery Act 1533. -- PBS (talk) 18:20, 26 June 2019 (UTC)

Feel free to make improvements - its a work in progress. Thank you for your additions and the documentation you have made. Victuallers (talk) 22:55, 26 June 2019 (UTC)
