New Year's HonoursEdit

  The Template Barnstar
I hereby award you the Template Barnstar, in recognition of all your hard work on succession boxes, and more specifically the templates of the s-start series. May you keep up the good work. Waltham, The Duke of 23:43, 1 January 2008 (UTC)


Fair use rationale for Image:Fpcf.jpgEdit

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Fpcf.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. NOTE: once you correct this, please remove the tag from the image's page.

s-ref templateEdit

Hi. I've been trying to use the s-ref template in the Ian Macfadyen article. I cannot get it to work for a reference, only for a note. Any ideas? Greenshed (talk) 17:10, 1 March 2008 (UTC)

Closure of SBSEdit

Long time no see, Darius. Unfortunately, participation in SBS has been too low for the project to function properly. I have thus been forced to declare its disbandment here. However, there seems to be some resistance by the members... Right now, I am under siege in my castle. Could you please talk some sense into them?

PS: Please send my carrier pigeon back; it's the only one I have. Waltham, The Duke of 13:56, 1 April 2008 (UTC)

Goodness, Darius, I was only joking... "Talk some sense into them" was referring to the pitchfork-bearing mob they had supposedly formed; all you had to do was read the talk page first. I am sorry for this mess, but it also serves as a wake-up call: you have really distanced yourself from SBS. Are you sure this is how you want to continue?
PS: Even if it weren't for all this, I should have called on you one of these days because there are a couple of template-related discussions coming up, and you are the project's resident technician. Your input would be much valued. Waltham, The Duke of 03:16, 2 April 2008 (UTC)
I've got to admit that I was rather shocked to see your response to my little joke; you've got me fooled, all right. I've also printed several "official" papers of various kinds in my school days, and I'm proud to say they've been very official-like according to my classmates. This one, you should know, has never been printed; I simply stitched together screenshots of the page in Microsoft Word, so that I wouldn't have to either print or scan it. It looks clearer, too. If you zoom in enough, you will see the pixels.
I understand your being busy; I also have several engagements in Real Life, and have been involved into various projects and initiatives on Wikipedia as well. I am particularly active in the Manual of Style and the Main Page's Errors page.
French is awful. It's a nice-sounding language, but its grammar is horribly difficult and its orthography is as bad as that of English. I had to study French for three years in junior high school; I remember a number of words (including numbers), but next to nothing grammar-wise.
We really should co-operate with Infoboxes; the two systems should be complementary, but a lack of communication between the two projects can only create problems and conflict. I'll see what I can do.
I don't know anything about s-ref's problems, but even if I did I couldn't help. I don't know anything about these things. That's why it's important you should participate in SBS discussions, at least the ones about technical matters. A few minutes of your time every week could do some difference without burdening you much. But there's no pressure. :-)
I hope you'll be able to successfully get by with your heavy schedule. And when you have more time, you're always welcome to come over my talk page and have a little chat like in the old times. :-D Waltham, The Duke of 23:39, 2 April 2008 (UTC)
First of all, please make up your mind: where do you want this conversation to take place? Here or on my talk page? This tennis-ball logic makes me dizzy.
Nice work on Napoleon's article; some order needed to be brought there. I have taken some care of the templates, replacing hyphens with en dashes (one should always use en dashes in date ranges) and removing useless year links. The templates' names were wrong in a couple of them as well; you might want to be careful there, because such mistakes make the v/d/e links take an editor to another template, or nowhere at all.
Ah, Darius... I don't know if you've realised it yet, but I am with the Dash Police now. I have been quite active at the Manual of Style, and as a result (of this and of other things) I have changed quite a bit from what you might remember. My editing personality is a little different (more mature, I suppose); even my English has improved. For instance, remember the WAF debate? I have come to realise that we were wrong; blinded, perhaps, by our new-found zeal, we wanted to use succession boxes in pages where that would be unsuitable. You must have changed your mind as well, because I have now noticed that you've had s-fic tagged for speedy deletion. I don't understand why the petition was rejected; the template is not used anywhere.
Your new idea of a page for navboxes is an interesting one. We really need to work with the Infobox people, in order to make our systems complementary instead of conflicting. We also need to settle the dates format at some point, once and for all, as its conflicting the Manual of Style has often come up. Basically, we have lots of things to do. Your taking this initiative with navboxes makes my next question sound quite plausible: Have you decided to return to SBS in earnest? I don't want to press you, but I am finding it increasingly hard to keep SBS on my own. My ever increasing workload at school and in other sectors of Wikipedia on one hand, and the perennially small participation in the project on the other, do not allow for a smooth process. If you stayed, however, we could move things along more easily.
(You have said that you've had to leave your other Wikipedia projects due to a lack of time, but I haven't really seen you work in any other projects so far—just the mainspace. I'd like to know where you were active, both out of curiosity and in case we could find some common links.)
Now, if we are to work on SBS, on-Wiki communication may not suffice. I have tried to contact you by e-mail, but you don't seem to have the feature activated. (May I be so indiscreet as to ask why?) I wonder if you've heard of Skype; it can be extremely useful for brainstorming (I already have a few ideas I'd like to discuss). I say that you should consider it seriously; I am using it to communicate with a couple of other Wikipedians, and it is a wholly different experience (real-time discussions and all).
Please answer all the questions; we have lots of catching-up to do, and time is of the essence. Waltham, The Duke of 04:01, 4 April 2008 (UTC)
PS: You should archive once in a while; you've got messages dating from 2003 in here!
PPS: One of these days I intend to create a To-do list for the project in my SBS subpage, which I have recently converted to general-use. I have a long list of things that need to be done in my laptop, and this could help us organise a little better, and set some priorities.
PPPS: About a month ago, I installed a wireless Internet connection; it's a little slow, but now I can log in wherever I want, whenever I want. If you'd look at my edit count, you'd see that my edits have nearly doubled in March in comparison to my average. This is turning into an addiction... Waltham, The Duke of 04:11, 4 April 2008 (UTC)

Thank youEdit

Hi Darius, thank you for your message and liberality. I am wondering if there is a program on wiki where you list your ancestors linearly (even several generation) and from that it generates a family tree. Let me know if this question is not clear.

Another question. The family history and family tree categories are under the strict rule of "notability" or not?

Thank you much, Adrian Comollo (talk) 15:24, 5 April 2008 (UTC)

Kings of ItalyEdit

As the template's creator, could you address my comments at Template talk:Antique Kings of Italy? Thanks. Srnec (talk) 05:03, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

Perhaps this could be useful with regards to collapsible succession boxes...Edit

...although, to be honest, I have no idea. The link is Wikipedia:VPT#Infobox titles centered with the .5Bhide.5D/.5Bshow.5D button?; these things disappear fast in the Village Pump, so look up the last archive if you are too late. Waltham, The Duke of 02:41, 21 May 2008 (UTC)

Tagging templates for speedy deletionEdit

Please do not tag in-use templates for speedy deletion. It makes it very confusing to figure out where the tags are coming from as the speedy deletion tags are included onto pages that transclude the template. If you need to tag something in template space for speedy deletion other than with {{db-t3}} (which is a special tag), you should always use noinclude tags around it. WP:CSD#Templates under T3 gives the conditions under which unused templates may be deleted. Please see {{db-t3}} for usage instructions ... the short version of it is that if you use {{db-t3|~~~~~|TemplateName}} and if nobody has used the template in that time, it will be deleted. This special tag includes the name of the template so if somehow the template were to be used subsequent to tagging, it makes it easy to figure out where the speedy deletion tag is coming from. --B (talk) 18:47, 1 June 2008 (UTC)

Namesake templateEdit

Yes, I was hoping to insert these into infoboxes once the nomenclature was firmed up. Deciding what "namesake" actually means to everyone so it wasn't ambiguous and would need further changing was my hope. Forlorn, since no one has come up with any other suggestions. I think the idea was kind of cute, but no, not really a succession per se. Hate to delete it but no one has picked up on it either. Oh, well. Death to the unused! Student7 (talk) 19:01, 1 June 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Template:S-ficEdit

A tag has been placed on Template:S-fic, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done for the following reason:

The template is no longer in use and its use is contrary to the MoS.

Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not meet basic Wikipedia criteria may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as an appropriate article, and if you can indicate why the subject of this article is appropriate, you may contest the tagging. To do this, add {{hangon}} on the top of the page and leave a note on [[Talk:Template:S-fic|the article's talk page]] explaining your position. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would confirm its subject's notability under the guidelines.

For guidelines on specific types of articles, you may want to check out our criteria for biographies, for web sites, for bands, or for companies. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. Bazj (talk) 13:48, 28 August 2008 (UTC)

re: your requestEdit

Hi

I'm very wikimissing (timewise) right now, but my suggestion is to simplify the problem as described[1]...

  1. Copy your sandbox version to template:Tt0...Tt9 test sandboxes, so is in template namespace. (I just opened up Tt0 4U, so it's definitely available.)
  2. Examine operation piece by piece... Template:Silent can be used to just "SWALLOW AND DISARM" parts vetted, or unneeded.
  3. Use http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:ExpandTemplates if useful to see expansion from preprocessor's output...
  4. The symptom described... getting both {{PAGENAME}} AND a passed named (or numeric) parameter is easy to fix. Try {{{Param_name|{{PAGENAME}} }}}
    1. Alternatively, should be able to craft #if or #ifeq tests, but they are basically unecessary in the situation you describe.

Good luck! // FrankB 17:31, 8 September 2008 (UTC)

Invitation to rejoin WikiProject Genealogy?Edit

I am extending this invitation to you because you are listed as the sole member of WikiProject Genealogy and as a Wikipedian genealogist. WikiProject Genealogy seems to have ground to a halt, and I'm hoping to either "reboot" it or, if interest is lacking, eliminate it. If you are so inclined, please visit "This project's purpose" topic in WikiProject Genealogy Talk at your earliest convenience and respond to my comment. (You might have to scroll down a bit; my comment is mostly boldfaced.) If you are not willing or able to participate, please notify me of such in email, and I won't disturb you further about this matter. Thank you. -JohnAlbertRigali (talk) 08:12, 20 December 2008 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Wikipedia Loves ArtEdit

First off, I apologize for the spam. You are receiving this message because you have indicated that you are in Southern California or interested in Southern California topics (either via category or WikiProject, or I happen to know personally).

I would like to invite you to the Los Angeles edition of Wikipedia:Wikipedia Loves Art, a photography scavenger hunt to be held at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) on Saturday, February 28, 2009, from 1:00 to 7:00 PM. All photos are intended for use in Wikipedia articles or on Wikimedia Commons. There will be a prize available for the person who gets the most photos on the list.

If you don't like art, why not come just to meet your fellow Wikipedians. Apparently, we haven't had a meetup in this area since June 2006!

If you are interested in attending, please add your name to Wikipedia:Wikipedia Loves Art#Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Please make a note if you are traveling to the area (train or plane) and need transportation, which can probably be arranged via carpool, but we need time to coordinate. Lodging is as of right now out of scope, but we could discuss that if enough people are interested.

Thank you and I hope to see you there! howcheng {chat} 00:39, 10 January 2009 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of California Marriage Protection Act (2010)Edit

The article California Marriage Protection Act (2010) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Wikipedia consistently deletes articles about proposed referenda that do not have enough signatures to be on the ballot--and this one isn't serious. Orphan article with no hope of improvement.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{dated prod}} will stop the Proposed Deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. The Speedy Deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and Articles for Deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. THF (talk) 14:19, 14 December 2009 (UTC)

Articles for deletion nomination of California Marriage Protection Act (2010)Edit

I have nominated California Marriage Protection Act (2010), an article that you created, for deletion. I do not think that this article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and have explained why at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/California Marriage Protection Act (2010). Your opinions on the matter are welcome at that same discussion page; also, you are welcome to edit the article to address these concerns. Thank you for your time.

Please contact me if you're unsure why you received this message. THF (talk) 12:57, 15 December 2009 (UTC)

LeirEdit

In your contribution on Leir you state that there is no etymological connection between Leir and Llyr. Do you have a source for this, or can you explain your reasoning? My question is not aggressive. I would find it useful if what you say is true, but I need either the reference or an explanation. Thanks. Mwiddows (talk) 23:30, 9 January 2010 (UTC)

No citations on 'Isabella I of Castile' pageEdit

Hello Whaleyland, I was reading the 'Isabella I of Castile' page, saw your name in the edit history and couldn't help but notice that there was not one single citation on the entire page... Not even a 'references/' tag in markup! Nice article but it needs citations, throughout. Regards, GWillHickers (talk) 19:13, 3 June 2010 (UTC)

Hello, you messaged me concerning citations for the Isabella I of Castile page but I really have no idea what you're talking about. If I edited it, I do not know when since it has well over 3000 edits. I tried looking but couldn't find my name anywhere on the edit history. And the page is quite adequately cited compared to the majority of other pages, so again I do not know what you mean. Mind clarifying?
Darius von Whaleyland, Great Khan of the Barbarian Horde 05:06, 4 June 2010 (UTC)
There are references at the bottom of the page, but there are no citations. If there were you would see 'ref' tags in the mark up. The only ref tags present are the couple I added the other day. I sent the same note out to several users whose name appears in the edit history there, hoping that someone might be up for the task. I checked the edit history again, and your name is not there...which is strange, as I selected names right out of the edit history, clicked on 'talk' which brought me directly to the user page. In any event, I did not mean to single you out. Regards, GWillHickers (talk) 16:01, 4 June 2010 (UTC)

Turning TenEdit

On Saturday January 15, 2011, Wikipedia will turn 10 years and people all over the globe will be celebrating Wikipedia on that day. No event is currently planned for Orange County Wikipedians, so I am leaving a message with some of the currently involved editors listed in "Wikipedians in Orange County, California" & "Wikipedians in Southern California" to see if we might want to meet on that day, lunch, dinner, group photo or other ideas welcomed? I will start a "Turning Ten" discussion thread on my Talk page to see if any interest can be planned for and determined. I am located in Old Towne Orange off the circle.Tinkermen (talk) 19:48, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

Opinion needed !!Edit

Hello !! :Whaleyland !!, I am writing to you as I found your name on Wikipedia:WikiProject Genealogy and I need someone else's opinion on Genealogy template.

The template is Template:Tagore family. Now as per my opinion the spouses of family descendents should not be part of template, as they are not direct genealogical descendants. Please go thru history to get aware of dispute. The creator of template User:AkhilKumarPal is not ready to accept this argument and claims ownership and has reverted me twice.

I do not want to revert him again and as per 3RR rule and I need to be sure what I am doing is right or wrong. Please let me know, if spouses can be included in template or not, as per your opinion?

Cheers !! Jethwarp (talk) 04:47, 15 March 2014 (UTC)

California Powder WorksEdit

Thank you for the recent edit to subject article. However, since your edit consisted entirely of deletion of allegedly erroneous content for which a reference citation had been provided, I have temporarily restored the referenced wharf removal date. Should you wish to challenge the removal date, I request you substitute an alternative date for wharf removal with an appropriate reference citation for the new date and appropriate talk page discussion about why that reference is more reliable than the presently cited reference.

Speedy deletion declined: Jean IV of BrittanyEdit

Hello Whaleyland. I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of Jean IV of Brittany, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: this is a redirect within the main space. Thank you. JohnCD (talk) 11:24, 11 November 2015 (UTC)

I'm not sure what that means, but only two articles link to Jean IV of Brittany, and one of them is this page. It is not a necessary redirect and the name is counter to Wikipedia naming conventions for nobility in that it uses a French-language variant of the name and it does not specify the individual's noble rank, hence the article John IV, Duke of Brittany which it links to. There is absolutely no reason for this page.
Darius von Whaleyland, Great Khan of the Barbarian Horde 12:08, 11 November 2015 (UTC)
The tag you used, {{db-r2}}, is for redirects from the main (article) Namespace to other namespaces like draft or user. The only other speedy for redirects is {{db-r3}} for recently-created implausible redirects, but this one has been around since 2009. (The restriction to recently-created is because of the possibility that deleting an older redirect might break incoming external links).
If you think it should be deleted, you can nominate it at WP:RFD, but first read the introductory material at the head of that, particularly WP:RFD#KEEP. Generally, it doesn't matter if the title of a redirect is not strictly correct - the test is, might it help someone find what they are looking for? This one doesn't get a lot of use, but it does get used every few days. JohnCD (talk) 22:03, 11 November 2015 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of User:KuatofKDY/Random testEdit

 

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on User:KuatofKDY/Random test, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G11 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page seems to be unambiguous advertising which only promotes a company, product, group, service or person and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become encyclopedic. Please read the guidelines on spam and Wikipedia:FAQ/Organizations for more information.

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 removed 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. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator. Cahk (talk) 11:28, 12 December 2015 (UTC)

Cabochien RevoltEdit

Greetings.Are you sure the Cabochien Revolt is a peasant uprising? It seems that it happened in Paris.--Catlemur (talk) 16:45, 3 March 2016 (UTC)

I suppose you are mostly correct, although it did spread out from the city somewhat, but it was mostly a revolt of the butchers of Paris (Simon Caboche being one of them). They fall into the nebulous category of neither aristocracy nor peasantry nor are they really bourgeois in the same sense that we generally thing of them. This revolt isn't the only such one like it, especially in France. Is there another template for city revolts or is it possible to break the current template into two interrelated sections. I found the template by looking for the Harelle, which was a revolt in Rouen which then became the Maillotins Revolt in Paris, the latter of which was definitely more of a merchant revolt than a peasant revolt. Indeed, the entire part of the Armagnac-Burgundian War within Paris functioned much the same, while Parisian revolts from Louis IX's reign all the way beyond the French Revolution all shared similar characteristics that would set them as quasi-peasant revolts led by the merchant class. I would appreciate any recommendations you have on this. My current research is comparing the Jacquerie and the Cabochien Revolt, but according to this template, only the former is a "peasant" revolt.  – Whaleyland (Talk • Contributions) 00:22, 4 March 2016 (UTC)
I am not entirely sure how to handle this. I would say that Cabochien is just a popular uprising. I noticed that peasant revolts are fairly syncretic in nature, most of them are tax revolts, however some bare elements of nationalism, religious motivations e.t.c. A lot of sources on the issue are from Marxists, one can also consider the fact that Maoists believe that the revolution must be initiated by peasants.--Catlemur (talk) 22:33, 4 March 2016 (UTC)
I'd say in medieval France, literally all revolts were tax revolts, including the Cabochien Revolt. And even if this one was lead by bourgeois, it was certainly supported by the peasant masses and briefly supported by John of Burgundy. If you don't mind, I'd say leave it in the list for now. It certainly qualifies if using the criteria for other revolts in the list so I don't think it hurts anything and it certainly would have helped me had I realised this was a revolt when I began my research. I found the Jacquerie and the Praguerie but not the Harelle or the Cabochien revolt.  – Whaleyland (Talk • Contributions) 22:52, 4 March 2016 (UTC)

Jewish financiersEdit

I am not insisting on this anymore, I am going through many disruptive, aggressive edits from dodgy usernames and IPs I know after having an long-running editor blocked for personal attacks and harassment. Of course that has nothing to do with you, but you could have engaged in dispute resolution, since the previous 100-edits editor just quit discussion and showed no engagement. Now on what WP basis other than personal do you dismiss the use of Jewish? It is about a certain social group of people with a common identity, not religion. It is in the reference, and provides useful, descriptive information on the character. I understand also that you reject the use of the dualistic Christian that and Muslim that in history matters. Thank you Iñaki LL (talk) 10:58, 4 January 2017 (UTC)

French dynastic disputesEdit

Heads up, I threw this up on AfD instead of accepting the PROD. I absolutely agree with you that the article as written isn't great, but based on the amount of discussion on the talk page, I thought it might be wiser to settle the whole thing at AfD. I copy-pased your PROD rationale with attribution but wanted to give you a heads up here as well. ♠PMC(talk) 00:29, 3 February 2017 (UTC)
