Bernard Freyberg, 1st Baron FreybergEdit

There is currently a discussion at Talk:Bernard Freyberg, 1st Baron Freyberg as to whether the subject should be described as a "British-born New Zealander", "British-New Zealander" or something else entirely. Additional input is welcomed. Wikipedia:New Zealand Wikipedians' notice board has similarly been notified. Cheers, Abraham, B.S. (talk) 06:21, 2 August 2019 (UTC)

Finding date of death of recipient of companionage ?Edit

I'd like to get confirmation over whether this book is in the public domain in the UK through "life + 70 years," and that would go by getting the date of death of co-author Haif Apisoghom S. Utidjian.

  • Bucknill, John A. Strachey; Haif Apisoghom S. Utidjian (1913). The Imperial Ottoman Penal Code: A Translation from the Turkish Text, With Latest Additions and Amendments Together with Annotations and Explanatory Commentaries Upon the Text and Containing an Appendix Dealing with the Special Amendments in Force in Cyprus and the Judicial Decisions of the Cyprus Courts. Humphrey Milford, Oxford University Press.

Bucknill died in 1926, and as copyright is life + 70 years in the UK, his copyright expired in 1996. As for Utidjian, Worldcat says he was born in 1853. If this is accurate, 120 years means he could have lived to, at most 1973 or so, and the copyright would certainly have expired by 2033.

Utidjian's birth year is seen here under "Companionage": Debrett's Peerage, Baronetage, Knightage, and Companionage. Kelly's Directories, 1916. p. 1495.

Request for information on WP1.0 web toolEdit

Hello and greetings from the maintainers of the WP 1.0 Bot! As you may or may not know, we are currently involved in an overhaul of the bot, in order to make it more modern and maintainable. As part of this process, we will be rewriting the web tool that is part of the project. You might have noticed this tool if you click through the links on the project assessment summary tables.

We'd like to collect information on how the current tool is used by....you! How do you yourself and the other maintainers of your project use the web tool? Which of its features do you need? How frequently do you use these features? And what features is the tool missing that would be useful to you? We have collected all of these questions at this Google form where you can leave your response. Walkerma (talk) 04:25, 27 October 2019 (UTC)

UK vs. GBEdit

There are different articles for stamps under each name:

Does one article or set of articles need to change? (I expect the GB need to change since these are all after 1801) Naraht (talk) 17:31, 13 November 2019 (UTC)

New bot to remove completed infobox requestsEdit

Hello! I have recently created a bot to remove completed infobox requests and am sending this message to WikiProject United Kingdom since the project currently has a backlogged infobox request category. Details about the task can be found at Wikipedia:Bots/Requests for approval/PearBOT 2, but in short it removes all infobox requests from articles with an infobox, once a week. To sign up, reply with {{ping|Trialpears}} and tell me if any special considerations are required for the Wikiproject. For example: if only a specific infobox should be detected, such as {{infobox journal}} for WikiProject Academic Journals; or if an irregularly named infobox such as {{starbox begin}} should be detected. Feel free to ask if you have any questions!
