famousbirthdays.com is not a reliable sourceEdit

Hi ArbieP. I'm in the process of removing famousbirthdays.com as a source from Wikipedia, because it's not reliable (See Wikipedia:Reliable_sources/Noticeboard/Archive_153#Is_famousbirthdays.com_a_reliable_source_for_personal_information). I noticed that you've added it, and wanted to make sure you understood why it's being removed. If you disagree, let's discuss it. Thanks. --Ronz (talk) 20:08, 12 January 2017 (UTC)

  Hello! I thought you may be interested in joining WikiProject England. We work on creating, expanding and making general changes to England related articles. If you would be interested in joining feel free to visit the Project Page!. Thank You.

Hi ArbieP. Thank you for adding notable names to Eccleshall, but Chris Eccleshall shouldn't be there. His surname has nothing to do with him ever living in the town. - Beeflin (talk) 00:49, 26 January 2017 (UTC)

Hello there Beeflin; thankyou for your comment. I agree he has nothing to do with the town, apart from the fact that they share a name. I've added a comment on the Talk pages for the town saying why I've put him there. By the way, I don't know the gentleman concerned but I do know the town.

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Kiel, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Function theory. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Notable people from LimburgEdit

Franz Kamphaus is listed, probably because he was Bishop there (born somewhere else), but so were others, - should we list them all? He was certainly the most-loved one. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 14:45, 4 September 2017 (UTC)

Good afternoon Gerda; thankyou for your comments. I've added another Bishop, the one who was sacked, he sounds quite controvertial, so qualifies in my mind as notable. I've no strong feelings about the others ArbieP (talk) 15:04, 4 September 2017 (UTC)

Gonzalo Colsa - replyEdit

Hello there Arbie, from Portugal,

indeed, I should have hit "undo" with an explanatory summary instead of "rollback", please accept my apologies. Now, I do explain: since we already have the "SPORTSPEOPLE FROM SANTANDER, SPAIN" category, the one you added is considered a sub-category of the former and thus not needed.

Hopefully that was explained well, sorry for any inconvenience --Quite A Character (talk) 09:48, 6 December 2017 (UTC)

Message for Erik - Deleted link for Paul FranklinEdit

Dear Erik

I see you have reverted an edit I made in the article for Paul Franklin. His date of birth is missing from the article and his year of birth is shown in the IMDb Database - as 1966 - so I inserted it in his article. Having a date or year of birth is very helpful when listing notable people in an article for their town - in his case, Congleton. Would you care to look again at what the IMDb link says

IMDb Database

Regards ArbieP (talk) 09:58, 25 December 2017 (UTC)


Dear Erik

I have not heard back from you, so I've made the amendment with citation. I hope you're agreeable with the outcome.

Best wishes

Notable people from GotlandEdit

Hi the ArbieP, you have done a great job putting together that long list of people from, or with connection to, Gotland. Good job. However, since that list is now so long, it looks a little bit disproportional with regards to the rest of the article. What would you say to cropping it off into a separate list article? You can for example look at how this is done at New Jersey and List of people from New Jersey. That way the list can grow and be even more elaborate. I did the same with List of Gotland-related asteroids in the "Astronomy" section when that list became more complete. What do you say to this?

Just to add: such a thing is called a split and it's described in WP:SPLIT. It requires some technicalities and formalities that I would be happy to help with. Even if I make the split, the "trail" would ensure that you still get credit for all the work you have done on the list.

Cheers, cart-Talk 21:00, 4 January 2019 (UTC)

User:W.carter Thankyou for your kind comments and your query about Gotland#Notable_people. I take your point about the article now being quite long, but I'd make a couple of points:- (1) I broke the article up into three "parts" so that it doesn't seem so "monolithic" on the eye (2) the list isn't going to grow, I've done a good search to update (Category:People from Gotland) which I used. On balance then, I think I'm happy to for it to stay as it is. I'm quite happy for you to raise the issue in the Talk:Gotland pages to see what others say.ArbieP (talk) 21:50, 4 January 2019 (UTC)

Yes, dividing it into three sections was a good move. Checking it out, the text is now 13% of the whole article (plus a lot of photos), and anything above 10% is enough to do a split. That would also make it easier to add more photos and we know how editors love to add those. The list will grow in a not so distant future since the island is a magnet for Swedish artists and writers. I think it's time for this split and I will post a notice about this on the talk page some time this weekend. Thank you again for your work on it. cart-Talk 22:09, 4 January 2019 (UTC)

Templates to help linking to Wikisource articlesEdit

I am currently running through this list insource:/en.wikisource.org\/wiki\/1911/ and that is how I came to the article Geneva. Please see this edit there are a lot of custom templates for linking to articles on Wikisource. Most (all?) of them use a custom parameter |wstitle= to make a link. You will find a chaotic list of them in User:PBS/Notes#List of PD Templates. The templates also take the usual parameters |title= and |url=, so that if an article does not yet exist on Wikisource a standard url link can be made. Then when the article is ported to Wikisouce it is easy to change the template to link to the wikisource article. Behind the scenes there are maintenance categories that allow editors to monitor things like missing wikisource articles eg: Category:Wikipedia articles incorporating a citation from the 1911 Encyclopaedia Britannica without Wikisource reference. -- PBS (talk) 20:48, 6 July 2020 (UTC)

Hello PBS Thankyou for your note and I've looked through the links you provided a few times. I confess these issues come close to the boundary of my technical knowledge and understanding. However, I think I follow the main point - that citations to various certain old wiki sources should use a special link and not an internet link. I've looked through the list (of 300 plus) and can see that some of the of the items result from my edits. Over the next few weeks I'll use the list and make amendments to my edits. I guess the same issue applies to other old wiki sources like the Dictionary of National Biography and I'll put them right too when I find them. ArbieP (talk) 13:10, 9 July 2020 (UTC)

Hello PBS As you may have noticed, I've been working on the list at the end of your link above. I've now replaced all the links that I created and instead used the cite EB1911 link. I've also been looking at some of the others in the list. Where they are (seemingly) straightforward, I've replaced them. On the other hand where they are not simple, e.g. where a link is cited more than once, I've not felt confident in making a replacement and have left them for you. And one of my edits on this issue has already been reverted, so I'm treading quite carefully. ArbieP (talk) 13:48, 21 July 2020 (UTC)

cite EB1911Edit

I tweaked your revision to Giovanni Miani. The article uses the {{sfn}} style for citations, with the source listed alphabetically at the end. This makes it clearer when different pages are cited from one source. Rather than break that pattern with an inline source definition:

<ref>{{cite EB1911|wstitle=Akka |volume= 01 | pages = 451 to 452 |short=x}}</ref>

it is cleaner and more precise to use {{sfn}} to point to the entry in the sources list:

{{sfn|Akka 1911 Britannica |p=456}}
...
*{{cite EB1911|wstitle=Akka |volume= 01 | pages = 456–457 |short=x |ref={{harvid|Akka 1911 Britannica}} }}

Thankyou; picky staff, indeed. Some of this gets beyond me, for example, using this search term
