Stranger Things season 3[edit]

I noticed you reverted my edit citing word count. This is the first I'm hearing about a word count limit, so this question is out of ignorance - is the word count limit for an individual episode, or for the entire page? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Hypnometal (talkcontribs)

It's per episode on a list like this, 200 words. See MOS:TV. --Masem (t) 14:47, 4 August 2019 (UTC)

Using caps in titles[edit]

I'm very interested in your views on CAPS. There is a discussion Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Ships#Motor Torpedo Boat PT-109 and other such boats here on the very subject of using caps in the title of a work. It's talking about Motor Torpedo Boat PT-109, and later an Air Lock Diving-Bell Plant. I've put this here rather than at the pump, to retain some focus there.

File:Tennessee Colleges of Applied Technology Logo.png[edit]

Hi Masem. Would you mind taking a look at the non-free use of this particular file. It's currently being used in five articles: Tennessee College of Applied Technology - Shelbyville, Tennessee College of Applied Technology - Pulaski, Tennessee College of Applied Technology - Crump, Tennessee College of Applied Technology - Chattanooga and Tennessee College of Applied Technology - Newbern. It has a rationale for one of these uses and sort-of-quasi rationales for the other four. Normally, I think a logo such as this would be OK if used in a parent article like Tennessee College of Applied Technology, but not really OK for use in individual articles about child entities (i.e. individual campuses) per WP:NFC#UUI17; however, as you can see, the file isn't being used in the "parent" article, which is pretty much just a list article without any real content. Looking at the official websites of each campus (except the one website which seems to no longer exist), the logo can be seen being used with the campus name being added like shown here. Techincially, I guess those would be considered child-entity specific logos, but they are essentially the same logo with just a different campus name, which means WP:NFCC#3 might come into play. So, bascially it seems to be a question of using one non-free file six times or six non-free files one time each. Do you think the current usage is OK per WP:NFCCP? Any suggestions on what should be down if not? Upload the individual logos and move the file to the parent article? -- Marchjuly (talk) 05:34, 15 August 2019 (UTC)

If the logo were non-free, yes, the usage is wrong - the single use on the parent article would be only appropriate. But I want to say this may be PD-textlogo (the logo is relatively simple) so this could be a free image. --Masem (t) 05:39, 15 August 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for the speedy response. Yes, it might be possible for this to be PD-logo per c:COM:TOO United States. If the parent logo is PD though, then the individual child articles should also be PD for the same reason, right? Now, for the sake of discussion, let's assume that the file needs to be non-free. You seem to be suggesting that it should be only used in the parent article. Would it then be acceptable in your opinion to upload the individual child logos as non-free for use in the individual child entity articles? It seems that the number of non-free uses would be the same regardless of whether one file is used six times or six files are used one time each, but obviously six files means more non-free files being hosted. The copyrightable elements of the logo would be the same so basically it would be like uploading the same file six times. -- Marchjuly (talk) 06:01, 15 August 2019 (UTC)
If the child entities are just adding their location to the existing NFC logo as simple text under the logo, then I would still think that you'd only need the parent logo, and none of the child ones. If somehow the name was integrated into the parent logo in a more artistic way, that would be different. --Masem (t) 14:00, 15 August 2019 (UTC)

How dare you accuse me of "disruption"![edit]

I made a comment, not an edit. I didn't "disrupt" anything except your fragile ego and your obstinate refusal to admit that "impacts" is a crap word that should be discouraged here. There are many appropriate, accurate and grammatically correct alternatives to this neologism, some of which I listed in my comment. You'll probably delete this comment, but you won't prevent me from replacing "impacts" wherever I see it. Autodidact1 (talk) 02:25, 18 August 2019 (UTC)

Matrix 4[edit]

So as to avoid another Akira situation, I have created a draft for the upcoming 4th Matrix here, should any additions you want to add in or if you want to reshape how it looks. Rusted AutoParts 20:45, 20 August 2019 (UTC)

That's one I was not at all planning to start. Just not enough information from even the 2017 -onward rumors for a sufficiently long article. --Masem (t) 20:50, 20 August 2019 (UTC)
It’s there though if you wish to help with it. Another thing, is the David Mitchell that’s co-writing David Robert Mitchell like linked in the section or is it the author David Mitchell who wrote Cloud Atlas that The Wachowskis directed a film of? Rusted AutoParts 20:52, 20 August 2019 (UTC)
Variety's article didn't go into enough depth but I picked the one that seems to be a screenwriter and in film, rather than the one that does more traditional lit. --Masem (t) 21:00, 20 August 2019 (UTC)
Maybe it is the novelist. [1] That Mitchell worked with Hemon on Sense8 which is also Wachowskis...--Masem (t) 21:06, 20 August 2019 (UTC)

Request for complaint review[edit]

Hey. Would you be able to assist me with a complaint? Another admin recommended I take it to ANI but I'm uncomfortable with doing that. I want to speak to an individual admin about a long-term experienced editor. And I need them to take action against that editor if they deem necessary. Can you review my complaint, preferably privately? If you decline, could you please refer me to another administrator? Best. 69.9.33.228 (talk) 14:28, 6 September 2019 (UTC)

If the issue is related to personal information, privacy or the like, you should look to WP:RFO to have that dealt with in private channels. Otherwise, there's nothing really "private" about it, and ANI is unfortunately the best place to put such a complaint. (I'm guessing by lack of contributions this is related to a different account or IP). --Masem (t) 14:50, 6 September 2019 (UTC)
Hmm, too bad you don't want to handle it. I hope you have some admin friends who do. 69.9.33.228 (talk) 15:02, 6 September 2019 (UTC)

Bahamas Humanitarian Crisis[edit]

Based on this, I think we may have a reason for ongoing now. NoahTalk 04:05, 7 September 2019 (UTC)

@Hurricane Noah: I agree that situation needs potential ongoing. My suggestion- the next potential blurb will be the Indian spacecraft. When that goes up - pushing Dorian down to be knocked off, reopen a new ongoing discussion focusing on the devastation in the Bahamas as well as anything in the US (but it looks like the US got relatively lucky?) as the point of why ongoing is appropriate. --Masem (t) 06:39, 7 September 2019 (UTC)
@Hurricane Noah: Now you should post to ask for Dorian to go to ongoing with the Bahamas sourcing you might have. --Masem (t) 15:13, 7 September 2019 (UTC)
I put both the main and effects article there since Dorian will hit Canada today. NoahTalk 16:13, 7 September 2019 (UTC)

You are wrong[edit]

Hello

Microsoft created the Xbox Game Studios the first one was called Microsoft Games started on 2000 (can you read all in internet) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jicco123 (talkcontribs) 21:04, 8 September 2019 (UTC)

Read the instructions of {{Infobox company}}. Owner= should only be filled if the company (in the infobox) is a privately owned company and another major entity has some equity ownership in it. Parent= should be used when the company is wholly owned by another. Xbox Game Studio is currently a division of MS, so it is clearly owned by MS, and thus we use "parent" here. --Masem (t) 21:17, 8 September 2019 (UTC)

MCQ question[edit]

Hi Masem. I added on to your answer at WP:MCQ#Question about two already-in-use images that were disallowed on other pages. because I felt there was more to things than just getting the bot to stop removing the files. If any of what I posted was incorrect, please feel free to point it out. One thing I noticed about when looking at the WTNI article was that an IP simply moved File:WTNI 1640TheChamp logo.png to the image gallery from the infobox (most likely due to the change in the station's branding) without taking into account that the file was licensed as {{Non-free logo}}. I removed the non-free former logo from the gallery, but am now wondering whether it cannot simply be converted to {{PD-logo}} instead. If it can, I will re-add the file to the article; if not, we'll I don't think it can be re-added. -- Marchjuly (talk) 00:20, 9 September 2019 (UTC)

It's too simple for US ToO, it can be PD text logo. --Masem (t) 00:30, 9 September 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for taking a look. I converted the license and re-added the file to the article, though I’m not sure whether a two-image gallery of basically the same logo really needs a stand-alone section, even if the files are PD. — Marchjuly (talk) 02:14, 9 September 2019 (UTC)

You changed the source of a statement in the k2-18b article to a different source which says something different and not what the statement says so I've reverted your change. Fdfexoex (talk) 22:23, 11 September 2019 (UTC) These two papers out today both say they've detected water but other than that they disagree. Fdfexoex (talk) 22:25, 11 September 2019 (UTC)

Thanks, I'll check to see if both should be used. --Masem (t) 22:45, 11 September 2019 (UTC)

You also removed the free-access source, replacing it with nature.com source which is behind paywall - a bad practice. I reverted, but please take caution.--Trurle (talk) 01:41, 12 September 2019 (UTC)
