Greenock Stowaways[edit]

Hello:

The copy edit you requested from the Guild of Copy Editors of the article Greenock stowaways has been completed.

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. A couple of things I noticed. In the Ill-treatment section it reads:

Kerr, hearing of this, declared that the boys would henceforth get "the ground of their stomachs before they get any more", (Sfn|Donald|1928|p=54) but the footnote says: Refn|”Specifically, Kerr swore, according to Roughead, that the first mate would "give the ground of their stomachs before they got any more".sfn|Roughead|2014|p=15}}|group=note

Of the two mentions – the one in the text cites Donald, one as a footnote cites Roughead. One says "get" one says "give". I'm not even sure what this quote means. The citations should be checked and corrected if necessary.

Also:

It's unclear how many boys had shoes. "the stowaways had no shoes between them" or "since some of the boys had no shoes" – is that "no" or "some" – needs clarifying

In the Arrivals section the quote box mentions some had, some didn’t have shoes.

Arrivals:

Mentions five stowaways were put off the ship, where are the other two?

Same section, then we have "Of the six boys, Reilly and Bryson were keen to leave…" Seven boarded in Greenock. This just needs clarification.

Best of luck with the GA review.

Please discuss on the talk page[edit]

Please discuss your changes on the talk page of Waqar Zaka. There appears to be a question about some of the sources, which is of course a valid discussion to have. I have added 2 more sources and am seeking engagement on the talk page.--Jimbo Wales (talk) 21:49, 19 April 2019 (UTC)

I've responded there. Your sourcing is/was poor enough, but the NPOV language—worse. ——SerialNumber54129 21:55, 19 April 2019 (UTC)
I don't see any NPOV problems - the language that I used is in multiple reliable sources, and doesn't seem to be either praising or damning anything. It's just very plain factual language. Perhaps on the talk page you could explain what you find POV about it.--Jimbo Wales (talk) 22:40, 19 April 2019 (UTC)
It has been explained to you, multiple times. ——SerialNumber54129 09:20, 20 April 2019 (UTC)

Discussion[edit]

Can you review the sentence in the lede containing the word 'money'. Your original was:
although the Yorkists were bound to pay large sums in compensation, this was done by with money already owed the by the government.
Recently this was:
although the Yorkists were bound to pay large sums in compensation, this was done by with money already owed by the government.
I've just changed it to
although the Yorkists were bound to pay large sums in compensation, this was done with money already owed by the government.
But that reads very strangely. "owed by the government"? Should that be "owed to the government"?
Shenme (talk) 01:23, 1 July 2019 (UTC)
@Shenme: apologise for the delay getting back to you. I couldn't find an easy way to phrase that, in quite a few attempts, but the point was (is) that the Yorkists made the payments to the dead Lancastrians' families with money that was owed to them by the government already (unpaid wages were a fact of life for Henry VI's nobility!). If you can tweak and improve it, go ahead :) ——SerialNumber54129 13:45, 1 July 2019 (UTC)

Ah fun memories[edit]

Hello SN. The last bit of this post calls back to a memorable moment from Yes Minister. Jim Hacker writes "round objects" on a memo from Humphrey Appleby. Later in the episode Bernard Woolley tells Hacker that Appleby asked him "Who is this Round and what does he object to?" :-) My dusty old memory banks have forgotten which episode this happened in but it still is an all time funny - or is that punny - for me. Cheers. MarnetteD|Talk

@MarnetteD: It was "Equal Opportunities"—rather apt considering current goings-on :)
But yeah, that was exactly what I was alluding to, safe in the knowledge that not one in a 1000 here would have the faintest idea what I was talking about. Except—except—I forgot about your truly encyclopaedic knowledge of british TV. Absolutely effing incredible! ——SerialNumber54129 17:39, 24 July 2019 (UTC)
Now you are making me blush! Great job on remembering the episode!! Cheers again. MarnetteD|Talk 18:10, 24 July 2019 (UTC)

WikiCup 2019 September newsletter[edit]

The fourth round of the competition has finished in a flurry of last minute activity, with 454 points being required to qualify for the final round. It was a hotly competitive round with two contestants with over 400 points being eliminated, and all but two of the finalists having achieved an FA during the round. Casliber, our 2016 winner, was the highest point-scorer, followed by Enwebb and Lee Vilenski, who are both new to the competition. In fourth place was SounderBruce, a finalist last year. But all those points are swept away as we start afresh for the final round.

Round 4 saw the achievement of 11 featured articles. In addition, Adam Cuerden scored with 18 FPs, Lee Vilenski led the GA score with 8 GAs while Kosack performed 15 GA reviews. There were around 40 DYKs, 40 GARs and 31 GAs overall during round 4. Even though contestants performed more GARs than they achieved GAs, there was still some frustration at the length of time taken to get articles reviewed.

As we start round 5, we say goodbye to the eight competitors who didn't quite make it; thank you for the useful contributions you have made to the Cup and Wikipedia, and we hope you will join us again next year. Remember that any content promoted after the end of round 4 but before the start of round 5 can be claimed in round 5. Remember too that you must claim your points within 14 days of "earning" them (some people have fallen foul of this rule and the points have been removed).

If you are concerned that your nomination, whether it be for a good article, a featured process, or anything else, will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews Needed (remember to remove your listing when no longer required). If you want to help out with the WikiCup, please do your bit to help keep down the review backlogs! Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. If you wish to start or stop receiving this newsletter, please feel free to add or remove yourself from Wikipedia:WikiCup/Newsletter/Send.

/* September 2019 */ I AM THE SOURCE SIR MENELIK I MADE THIS DR OCTAGON ALBUM FOR KOOL KEITH[edit]

http://www.unkut.com/2005/06/holdin-new-cards-scaramanga-interview/ https://www.linkedin.com/in/sun-large-records-star-of-the-empire-mgmt-a-publ-70986832/detail/recent-activity/shares/ Finally the full true story about the Dr. Octagon concept is out!! Read now!!!

1. "Dr. Octagon/Dr.Octagynocologist)-Bulk Records/Mo'WaxRecords/DreamWorks Records 4 songs 1."No Awareness b/w Bear Witness" 12" 2. "Dr. Octagon" 3. "On Production" 4. "Biology 101"

The Dr. Octagon concept was developed by Sir Menelik for Kool Keith in 1994. The multi-syllabic, on beat/off beat style of rap cadence with futuristic/sci-fi context was the calling card of the Dr. Octagon album. Assistance and inspiration also came from Alexander Calderon of the rap group "Raw Breed" Alex Calderon had a group named "Dr. Bizarro" that disbanded that had a similar plot in pre-conception to Dr. Octagon. Alex and Sir Menelik worked on demo's for songs together at Ice-T's studio in LA at the time. The original concept song that started the whole Dr.Octagon recording process was the "So Intelligent" featuring Kool Keith and DLS (produced by T.R. Love UltraMagnetic Mc's) off the Cyclops 4000 demo TR Love was making at the time for for Sir Menelik in 1994. T.R. Love also worked on demo's at that time for Raw breed and Kool Keith. After some time the duo of Sir Menelik recorded the Dr. Octagon track (produced by K.Matlin). Dan Nakamura had Bulk Records that wanted to put together a project with Kool Keith. Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito on 89.9 got the So intelligent demo from Sir Menelik. That is how the Dr. Octagon project got its legs.Sir Menelik had made the demo's recorded during that time period a two part project -Dr.Octagon demo's were for Kool Keith, and Cyclops 4000 demos were for Sir Menelik. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sir Menelik aka Scaramanga (talkcontribs) 11:04, 2 September 2019 (UTC) You claim to opposes the Wikimedia Foundation's arbitrary, opaque, and dictatorial office-banning of administrators when the community and ArbCom are more than capable of handling the issue themselves.

Coterel gang scheduled for TFA[edit]

This is to let you know that the Coterel gang article has been scheduled as today's featured article for October 18, 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/October 18, 2019, but note that a coordinator will trim the lead to around 1000 characters anyway, so you aren't obliged to do so.

For Featured Articles promoted on or after October 1, 2018, there will be an existing blurb linked from the FAC talk page, which is likely to be transferred to the TFA page by a coordinator at some point.

We suggest that you watchlist Wikipedia:Main Page/Errors up to the day of this TFA. Thanks! Jimfbleak - talk to me? 15:30, 10 September 2019 (UTC)

Thank you for the article, and sorry that I missed the FAC with the introduduction "Gang of ruffians, hiding out in Sherwood Forest, duffing up royal officials, fair maids and boozy priests, history releases not their secrets. The Coterel Gang: A likely historical antecedent of the Robin Hood legend. AKA more fun and games from the early 14th-c. when the King wanted to go to Scotland but ended up in Derbyshire, and those who wanted to stay in Derbyshire went to Scotland."! - I'll open a peer review for Clara Schumann, today, the day her piano concerto graces the Main page ;) - ... her image graces even more. - I don't know what to respond to PMC who tells me a ban is a ban, the day I celebrate that my favourite editor told a freshly banned (OTD seven years ago) "go on with life, have a laugh".

Scripts++ Newsletter – Issue 9[edit]

WP:ACE2019[edit]

Thanks for reverting that. I have no clue what happened there. spryde | talk 12:39, 7 October 2019 (UTC)

@Sp: No problem at all, clearly accidental, not worth maing a song and dance over. In the spirit of "it could've happened to anyone", I nearly blanked the entire lead of TFA earlier and only just caught myself! :o thanks for the message though! ——SerialNumber54129 12:53, 7 October 2019 (UTC)

For some truly oddball articles[edit]

Oddball Barnstar Hires.png The Oddball Barnstar
By the authority vested in me by myself it gives me great pleasure to present you with this barnstar in recognition of numerous very fine articles true to the tradition of, um, well, the one which you seem to have started yourself. Long may it prosper. Gog the Mild (talk) 10:21, 11 October 2019 (UTC)
@Gog the Mild: pray tell! Surely Mowbrays, Bonvilles etc not so oddball 😊 hope all's well! ——SerialNumber54129 11:53, 11 October 2019 (UTC)
But it is the others that stick in the mind. Good thanks. Trying, and failing, to get back into some content creation. (People keep distracting me by sending me reading matter, the bounders.) You? Gog the Mild (talk) 11:58, 11 October 2019 (UTC)
Heh :) I was thinking, how about a co-nom on Battle of Pontvallain? It might ned a little tidying first, as I haven't looked at it for sometime, but it should be doable, and it's rather up your street isn't it? Or perhaps a little late than you prefer? Although I see that as I do, you enjoy a movable feast. The bonus, of course, is that we share results for half the work. What say ye? ——SerialNumber54129 15:13, 12 October 2019 (UTC)
A co-nom sounds good to me. It also has the attraction of allowing each of us to run a separate independent FAC at the same time. My last FAC was from 1355, so I am breaking out of the 1345-46 ghetto. Actually my next two FACs were going to be from 256 BC and 1945, just for a change. How would you like to approach it? I could give it "the works", then you could comment on all the things that you don't like about the result; or I am happy to use any other approach you prefer. Gog the Mild (talk) 17:55, 12 October 2019 (UTC)
GtM, I've never done it before. Well, a co-nom anyway :) how about you give it your treatment? I'm aware that perhaps even the layout, structure might be adjustable: let's have a look with what you come up with?
The Battle of Cape Ecnomus is a nice article. Well out of my comfort zone, fair play to you! ——SerialNumber54129 18:30, 12 October 2019 (UTC)
Re co-nom: me neither, which means that I have no preconceptions/haven't a clue what I am doing. I will try to start tomorrow. Note that I usually take several runs at an article. So me going right through an article making changes is not necessarily an indication that I think I am finished.
Ecnomus - that was part of the idea. It was interestingly stretching to try and get it into a comprehensible article. Much the same applies to my getting sucked into the late-Medieval stuff. Gog the Mild (talk) 20:01, 12 October 2019 (UTC)

Ritchie's talk page comments[edit]

Hi Serial Number 54129, I'm sorry that you felt my comments on Ritchie's talk page were unhelpful. I feel it important to voice my own comments and opinions regarding Ritchie333's actions. I would ask that, in future, you ask me first before removing my talk page comments per the guidelines in WP:TPO. I hope that this does not cause conflict between us, as I do respect you as an editor. Thank you for your time and best wishes to you. Waggie (talk) 05:39, 16 October 2019 (UTC)

note[edit]

this also removed someone else's post (Ritchie's) - not sure that's what you intended. — Ched (talk) 07:02, 16 October 2019 (UTC)

Many thanks Ched, have restored the post to its place. ——SerialNumber54129 07:08, 16 October 2019 (UTC)

Your GA nomination of Order of Brothelyngham[edit]

Hi there, I'm pleased to inform you that I've begun reviewing the article Order of Brothelyngham you nominated for GA-status according to the criteria. Time2wait.svg This process may take up to 7 days. Feel free to contact me with any questions or comments you might have during this period.

In Use tag[edit]

Please respect the In Use tag and allow me to work through the sources. The article is far from finished. Gleeanon409 (talk) 17:27, 18 October 2019 (UTC)

@Gleanon409:, with all due respect, the {{inuse}} tag does not override WP:OWN which is English Wikipedia policy and so as about as important as it gets. Please read that page if you have not been directed to it already. Furthermore, much of your additional material is, as I said in my edit-summary, unfortunately—but frankly—not wholly encyclopaedic in either content or tone. Such additions are not only not protected by the {{inuse}} tag but should, in fact, be summarily removed. Have a good weekend! ——SerialNumber54129 17:38, 18 October 2019 (UTC)

Sock puppet investigation[edit]

Just so we're clear, I perfectly understand the purposes of SPI and I had plenty of reasons to be suspicious (most of which have already been outlined in great detail). But because of the my BLP violation and the length of it, certain administrators chose not to listen.

But that's neither hear nor there. While I stand by my statements in regard to the IP user, I have chosen to move forward and leave any actions in the hands of WilyD. The BLP matter itself has also been resolved, and I have no interest in dwelling on this any further. DarkKnight2149 18:12, 18 October 2019 (UTC)

Please see User talk:Darkknight2149#CVUA offer and User talk:Darkknight2149#Jasper Rine where the matter was handled. DarkKnight2149 18:15, 18 October 2019 (UTC)
Well, it certainly sounds like the issues have indeed been resolved...until next time. One thing history teaches us (blah blah) is that those who do not learn from their mstakes are bound to repeat them. I hope it's not a truism. Have a good weekend! ——SerialNumber54129 18:17, 18 October 2019 (UTC)
To be fair, history already has repeated itself. The last time I was accused of casting aspersions was with Twitbookspacetube in February 2017, who frequently parroted and tag-teamed with other users while acting in bad faith. Do you know what happened? Nobody listened to me... And seven months later, he was banned from Wikipedia for all the things I warned everyone he was doing (and then some).
The reason I'm posting this is to clear up any residual doubt. I absolutely did violate BLP (inadvertently), but the "cast aspersions" claims are incorrect. One thing I have observed at WP:ANI is that it's a lot easier for (hypothetical) dishonest users to game the system when:
A) A hypothetical ANI thread is a drawn out, unorganised, and complex mess that's difficult to keep track of. That's actually why I insisted that people talk to me about BLP on my talk page instead of there.
B) When there's a sliver of truth in their claims. In this particular case, the sliver was that I violated BLP.
Either way, I have no more intention of harping on this. The past is the past, I just hope that I helped clear some of this up with you. Have a great weekend. DarkKnight2149 20:19, 18 October 2019 (UTC)
