Hey, how's it going? I see you've reviewed football-related articles for FA in recent years. A.C. Monza has been a candidate for over three weeks, and there are almost no comments. I would really appreciate it if you took some time to leave a comment (it doesn't necessarily have to be a full review) :) Nehme1499 21:10, 16 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Nehme1499 - Really sorry, but I have zero knowledge of/interest in football. The FAs in that area I’ve reviewed have generally been Cardiff related, which is why I’ve picked them up. I know, from bitter experience!, how disheartening it can be when an article you’ve sweated blood over doesn’t generate interest at FAC. Them’s the breaks, as someone[who?] once said. Peer review is a good suggestion, although that’s been rather moribund for a while. The alternative is just to wait a while and resubmit. I’ve one from 2020 which also got no further than an image review. I wish you all the very best with Monza. KJP1 (talk) 21:44, 16 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks for the help + kind words! I guess I'll try a PR next time. Nehme1499 21:59, 16 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Next steps Palladian[edit]

We are still in good shape for August 13 as planned. Nikkimaria (FAR Coord) almost always goes through on Fridays or Saturdays, so even if the FAR doesn't close this weekend, we're still in time for the next. If someone comes in with an awful review, indicating a delay in the FAR close, then we would ping in the TFA schedulers with a heads up, and they might opt to change the TFA (I don't see that happening).

I saw somewhere (can't recall where) a proposed TFA blurb that wasn't quite up to snuff, so you should watchlist now Wikipedia:Today's featured article/August 13, 2022, so that as soon as something goes in, you have a first look, and can suggest improvements (on talk or directly). The important instructions are:

  • We use one paragraph only, with no reference tags or alternative names; the only thing bolded is the first link to the article title. The length when previewed is between 925 and 1025 characters including spaces, " (Full article...)" and the featured topic link if applicable.

I usually ping in the scheduler with my suggestions on talk, rather than change it myself (unless obvious and easy), just to avoid ruffled feathers.

Good luck! SandyGeorgia (Talk) 17:31, 18 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Your addition to T. Harri Jones has been removed or altered, as it appears to closely paraphrase a copyrighted source.

I don't want this to go to ANI, so let me explain my reasoning. This is a close paraphrase, thus a copyright violation, because your rendition is a superficial modification of the source sentence, [...], Jones was the son of a road worker and servant girl, and the grandson of a shepherd who predicted, at his birth, that he would become a poet. (source for attribution) for some synonyms. It also reproduces an anecdote that doesn't need to be in our article, and makes up half the paraphrased sentence. –♠Vamí_IV†♠ 22:06, 17 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
(talk page watcher) I find it very hard to believe that an editor as skilled as KJP1 would do a copyvio. Please be very sure that this is a correct accusation. --Tryptofish (talk) 22:08, 17 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Vami_IV - we will have to disagree, both on whether it is appropriate to include what the source says, and on whether my rendition of what the source says is a copyright violation. I have tried a further re-wording which may meet your concerns. KJP1 (talk) 22:19, 17 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I'll drop the stick, since CLOSEPARA isn't policy and you are attributing. I still think that anecdote about Jones' grandfather being a shepherd and predicting his success is superfluous and shouldn't be in the article. That's the meat of my argument here. Without it, I think, the sentence is OK.♠Vamí_IV†♠ 22:26, 17 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Stowe Gardens[edit]

Hello! Thanks so much for the edits to Stowe Gardens - I expect you have a lot of projects on the go, but in case you fancy another, I'm going to try to get this article to GA in the Autumn, and wondered if you'd like to collaborate? Lajmmoore (talk) 16:52, 1 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Lajmmoore - The thing that took the most time was getting the links to Grade I listed buildings in Buckinghamshire. There are just so many! I love a collaboration and Stowe Gardens is a fantastic topic. Can I say a provisional yes. My only issues:
  • timing - I don’t want to delay anything but I am away for 3 weeks starting mid-October;
  • sources - I’ve got a fair bit on Stowe, guides etc., but not a substantial book (not counting Pevsner). Is the Bevington the most recent/comprehensive and do you have access to it?
Let me know. I absolutely don’t want to delay you and will quite understand if my timings don’t work. KJP1 (talk) 17:22, 1 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

TVs in St Michael's[edit]

Some years ago the church did away with hymn books and orders of services and did everything with projection. Because of the pillars, a single projector was not sufficient to be visible from all vantage points. To me, the logical solution, used in other churches, was to use three projectors, one in each aisle. However, the person advising them told them this would be much more expensive than wiring up bracket mounted CRT TVs. These, then, were used to project to side aisles.

I cannot help feel that they were ill advised (and indeed, I may well have told them so at the time!) This was in the early days of digital projection when each projector cost thousands of pounds, but it was equally clear the price would come down rapidly, and also it was clear that CRT TVs were end stage technology. I suspect the person who sold them the system could get cheap TVs because people were starting to replace them with flat screens.

In any case, they went with the advice of the installer and now they are stuck with them. Sirfurboy🏄 (talk) 19:18, 16 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

They’re certainly a mistake architecturally. And probably technically, as you say. That said, one has considerable sympathy with these enormous Victorian churches. They’re vast, and so far beyond the means, and the needs, of 21st-century congregations. The Holy Name, in my town, can hold a thousand, and yet its normal congregation rarely exceeds a dozen. KJP1 (talk) 21:18, 16 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yes, and the pillars do cause issues with obstructed sightlines. At the time, St Michael's was actually fairly full each week, so they needed to do something for people in the side aisles. The Holy Name looks like a grand piece of architecture. Sirfurboy🏄 (talk) 07:45, 17 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Dedications for Wikipedia articles[edit]

Hi KJP1, we came across each other yesterday on the Haden Hill Talk page where I expressed my disagreement with some of your comments. Hope you don’t mind me posting these thoughts on your Talk page as I’m unsure whether or not they should go on the Haden Hill Talk page. Anyway, it puzzled me why you’re adamant that the Haden Hill article is a ‘Memorial’ article – as I didn’t see it that way. Because you’re a lot more experienced Wikipedia contributor than me, I thought maybe I have it wrong.

As a Wikipedia reader, who hasn’t read the Talk page I still don’t see the Haden Hill article as a memorial article. However, as a Wikipedia contributor who has read the Talk page I can now see a different interpretation. I initially thought it was a “nice gesture” to dedicate the Wikipedia article. Now, I’m tending towards the opposite view. I don’t think it is good practice for an individual contributor to dedicate a Wikipedia article in this way. Yes, books often have a dedication but the published content is static and has an individual author. Wikipedia article’s are subject to change by many contributors. It could be interpreted that an author making such a dedication is attempting to claim ownership of the article and deter others from making major revisions. I understand it’s difficult to argue this on the article talk page without casting aspersions on the author’s motivations so you were probably right not to engage further and just stick to your viewpoint.

I’ve tried searching for ‘dedications’ for Wikipedia articles but found nothing of relevance. It’s the only instance I’ve seen of such a dedication but wonder whether you’ve come across others?

On your second point re local enthusiastic historians, you’ve been immediately vindicated by an error I found reading a book on Rowley Regis published in 2006. The author stated that “the Riddins Mound tower blocks were spectacularly blown up . . .”. In fact, only one of three has been demolished (back in 1996) - the other two remain in situ! Rupples (talk) 18:04, 18 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Rupples - Thanks for dropping by. And no problem at all, either with your posting here or with your disagreeing with my comments at the Haden Hill Park Talkpage. Wikipedia’s very frequently improved by, civil, disagreement. Let me try and briefly summarise my view:
  • Wikipedia:NOTMEMORIAL - You’re right that, strictly defined, Haden Hill Park isn’t a memorial to the main author’s father. But I think it actually is, particularly in the main author’s mind. Their posting creates a sense of Wikipedia:OWN, which I think is unhelpful, for many of the reasons you outline above. And the main author actually acknowledges this - “I have written this article as a tribute to my father”.
  • Wikipedia:Summary style - The main author’s desire to create a “suitable” memorial (see above) has led them to create a very long article on a pretty unimportant municipal park. For example, we are given a whole section on Pet graves. In my view, the subject just doesn’t warrant the detail of the content.
  • Wikipedia:Reliable sources - I get absolutely your point re. the value of enthusiastic local historians. I love, and use, Fred Hando, who wasn’t a trained historian but was a very well-informed amateur. However, almost the entirety of the article is sourced to one local historian, in a, probably self-published, book and a YouTube video. These just aren’t sources on which I think you can largely base an article for the world’s most-read on-line encyclopaedia. The duty to our readers should outweigh the desire to create a suitable “memorial” (see above).
  • Tone - Having said all of the above - and this is a longer reply than I usually like to write as I try to follow a summary style in Talkpage discussions - I think my exchanges with the main author became unduly terse. I should have recognised the importance the article had to them, and should have replied in a more sympathetic way. Wikipedia, in its very essence, is a collaborative enterprise, and in my experience it ALWAYS functions best when editors treat each other with courtesy and respect, especially when they disagree. KJP1 (talk) 18:43, 18 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks for taking the trouble to write such an in-depth reply. I'm only a sporadic Wikipedia contributor so it's useful to read (and in some cases re-read) the links you've provided. Rupples (talk) 19:09, 18 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Please keep civil and respectful[edit]

Your phrasing "unreadable dog's breakfast of badly written" should never be used as it is offensive, you had hind-sight to this before you replied in the mari lwyd talk page, but you went ahead and published it anyway without care.. how can "unreadable dog's breakfast of badly written" be beneficial for editors to contribute further in Wiki if people like yourself put them down?, I have dyslexia, and it takes me hours to a full day of my time to write my contributions, all I want is positive feedback and to have other editors work together to make our contributions better, but I can only view your attitude as bullish, you have no idea how your remarks changes a person's entire day.Hogyncymru (talk) 17:45, 31 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

(by talk reader) @Hogyncymru: Your assertion that "all I want is positive feedback" seems unreasonable. KJP1 didn't attack anyone's personhood. This is a content issue about how the article is written. You have no right to refuse criticism even if you don't like how that criticism is phrased.

mocking someone's contribution is mocking the person themselves, it's just rude. Hogyncymru (talk) 18:11, 31 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hogyncymru - You're an editor of seven-years standing, and describe yourself as experienced on Wikipedia, as well as a researcher and a historian. As such, you must see that a culture where we only gave positive feedback wouldn't work. I try to keep my criticisms to content, not contributors but from my experience at Gwrych Castle, you are not inclined to listen. Take today - we are in a discussion about the use of primary sources on Mari Lwyd, and you create Lady Grizel Winifred Louisa Cochrane. There is absolutely no indication of Notability, there is not a single Secondary source used, and none of the five Primary sources used is more recent than 1920! In short, you've done exactly what you did at Mari Lywd, and continue to do elsewhere. You've taken a bunch of, very old, newspaper reports, interpreted them and synthesised their content into an unsuitable article. Which is also grammatically weak, even to the basics of using capitals where they're not appropriate, e.g. "Hippopotamus, Wildebeest, Leopard, Rhinoceros, Waterbuck, Cape Buffalo, Killed", and not using them where they are, e.g. Lent, the starting words of sentences. Ultimately, we're here to build an encyclopedia, not to give each other positive reinforcement. And our interests, particularly in Welsh history/culture/buildings, overlap. So I will continue to critique your contributions where I don't think they improve the encyclopedia. Exactly as I would expect others to do of mine. Regards.
