Nasc dearga

Oops! Sorry :( We'd been doing so well, too. Unfortunately, I've lost my internet connection at home (I'm typing this from en:Panera Bread) but I'll sit down and fill out a whole month's worth later tonight. Really sorry about that, but I still feel it's worth it to have daily dynamic content on the mainpage. I'll try to be more diligent, though ... *meeps* - Alison 17:02, 2 Feabhra 2009 (UTC)

That's alright. Sorry if edit note was a bit short. Just saw it this morning and thought "bah! I should have created those stubs when I thought about it at Christmas". It's certainly not all on you, but if you can think of a quick way of scripting the creation of some stubs would head off any issues (same format as the placeholders I created should be fine)... Guliolopez 17:06, 2 Feabhra 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for that, and sorry for all the trouble. I'll get AllieBot to fill in the templates for the year in a little while here - that way, na hAthruithe is déanaí won't get visibly flooded. I'll get on it :) - Alison 19:04, 2 Feabhra 2009 (UTC)


  • Once all the complex work of templates etc has been done (eg the month of feb), should it be updating automatically (in the source it says "LALAITHIREACH") or does it have to be done manually? (notice it still has yesterdays stuff)

if so how? or is it an admin thing? --Spaircí 12:07, 3 Feabhra 2009 (UTC)

If the "on this day" template is out of synch/step on the homepage, just click the purge button. (Link labelled as "Athnuaigh an leathanach" bottom right of "on this day" template.)

Ceist

Haigh, a GhL! Maidir leis an gcomhrá seo, ní fheicim aon cnaipe, an bhfuil ceann ann? Brón orm nach raibh mé in ann cuidiú leat go dtí seo. --Antóin 14:09, 16 Feabhra 2009 (UTC)

If you go to the "new pages" list here, and click on click on one of the new page links (as here), you should see a small link (bottom right) that says [Comharthaigh an t-alt seo mar patrólta]. As per this EN example. Does this not show for you? Guliolopez 14:18, 16 Feabhra 2009 (UTC)
Cheers. No actually, I can't see the link. Perhaps it's something to do with access rights or something? --Antóin 14:21, 16 Feabhra 2009 (UTC)
Hmm. According to the process (on the EN project at least), patrol rights should be yours as an "auto-confirmed user" (which you are about a million times over). See: en:Wikipedia:New_pages_patrol/patrolled_pages. Perhaps the patrolling facility is not fully/properly implemented here yet however. Will ask Alison/Gabriel if they can help. Otherwise I may have to burn through the remaining 100+ (mainly poor) "unpatrolled" pages on my tod :( [1] So, sit tight for now, and I'll ping you again when it looks like being resolved. Thanks for piping up though :D Guliolopez 14:34, 16 Feabhra 2009 (UTC)

An Cuntas MALA2009

A Ghulio, a chara, Is mé féin a chruthaigh an cuntas seo. Beidh mise ag uaslódáil saothar na mac léinn ach tá sé tábhachtach go bhfaigheann siad aitheantas ar son a gcuid oibre. Tá an t-eolas seo foilsithe ar mo leathanach baile agus cuirfidh mé an t-eolas céanna ar leathanach an úsáideora MALA2009. Ní bheidh an cuntas seo in úsáid ach le saothar na mac léinn a uaslódáil. Nuair a bheidh an obair sin déanta, cuirfidh mé deireadh leis an gcuntas. Sílim, fad agus atá sé soiléir do dhaoine, cén aidhm atá leis an gcuntas, nach bhfuil aon riail eiticiúil á bhriseadh anseo. Céard a cheapann tú? Nmacu 11:34, 18 Márta 2009 (UTC)

OK. Beidh sé sin ceart go leor (dar liomsa agus na dtreoirlíne). Beir bua leis! Guliolopez 16:47, 18 Márta 2009 (UTC)
GRMA. Beidh mé ag uaslódáil na leaganacha plain text de réir a chéile leis an gcuntas seo agus ag déanamh clibeáil air faoi m'ainm féin (ma chuimhním ar logáil amach agus isteach arís!). Buíochas, Nmacu 18:15, 18 Márta 2009 (UTC)

Bosca Eolais club CLG

A Ghulio, a chara. An bhféadfá Bosca Eolais Club CLG a athrú, más é do thoil é? Ba mahith liom na sonraí seo a leanas a chur isteach ann:

- roinn (i ndiaidh "contae"). Líne amháin.

- craobhacha contae peile (i ndiaidh "peil"). Is féidir níos mó ná líne amháin a bheith sa sonra seo - msh "Sinsear: 1982, 1985, 1993 (líne nua) Sóisear: 1966, 1971". Muna bhfuil rud ar bith scríofa sa sonra seo, ní thaispeánfar an líne ar an scáileán. Agus b'fhéidir go gcomhrófaí líon na graobhacha agus go mbeidís i lúibíní i nidiadh an ghráid - msh Sinsear (3): 1982, 1985, 1993.

- craobhacha roinn peile (i ndiaidh "craobhacha contae peile"). Mar an gcéanna leis an gcruth thuas.

- craobhacha contae iomána (i ndiaidh "iomáint"). Mar an gcéanna leis an gcruth thuas.

- craobhacha roinn iomána (i ndiaidh "craobhacha contae iomána"). Mar an gcéanna leis an gcruth thuas. Sean an Scuab 21:16, 18 Márta 2009 (UTC)

A Ghulio, a chara. Dheinas dearmad ar chirín an chlub. An bhféadfá bosca a chur ós chionn ainm an chlub chomh maith a ghlacfaidh íomhá cirín an chlub (má tá cirín ag an gclub), más é do thoil é? Sean an Scuab 22:15, 18 Márta 2009 (UTC)

Cleanup tags

I understand what you are trying to say about removing cleanup tags, but I made sure that I cleaned up the page to a reasonable standard before removing the tags, in some cases I almost completely rewrote the page. Note also that sometimes I forgot to remove the tag while doing the actual edit, but instead returned later to do so. Thanks a million anyway for your help. Regards, (Footyfanatic3000 21:01, 28 Aibreán 2009 (UTC))

Page vandalization at Peadar Ua Laoghaire

PUL's famous book was called Mo Sgéal Féin. While that may be spelled Mo Scéal Féin in current dictionaries, that is not the spelling he used. He produced no book called Mo Scéal Féin. So you vandalized the page.—Scríobh an t-úsáideoir 86.140.19.131 (plédréachtaí) an trácht roimhe seo, ach bhí síniú in easnamh.

Well. If that is the case, then you really should have put that explanation in the edit summary when you made your change. My mind-reading device is at the menders, and so I did not know why you made the change and couldn't discern whether it was valid. Based on this (belated) explanation, I won't stand in your way if you wish to re-make the change. Assuming you put the above explanation in your edit summary. (For help, please read WP:ES. Also note that reverting an unexplained and apparently random change is not "vandalism", so you may also wish to read WP:VAN to see what we do and don't consider vandalism.) Happy editing.

League of Ireland - Bosca

The box is inappropriate but it'll have to do until the Irish equivalent of this template is created, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Infobox_Sports_league.

Hi Guliolopez: 0

I'm pleased to announce that we've started a new Ireland Wikimedian email list, that you can join, at mail:WikimediaIE. For Wikimedians in Ireland and Wikimedians interested in events in Ireland and efforts in Ireland. It's there to to discuss meetups, partnerships with Museums and National Archives, and anything else where Wikipedia and real life intersect.

Hello, Guliolopez, I've left a note for you on your English user talk page. Thanks. Hersfold 14:51, 4 Meitheamh 2009 (UTC)

As láthair i gceann tamaillín

Haigh, a Ghulio,

Beidh mé as láthair ar feadh cúpla seachtain sa Samhradh. Táim ag dul abhaile ar an 28ú Meitheamh agus beidh me ag taisteal go dtí An Téalainn le cúpla seachtain eile. Sa deireadh, beidh mé ar ais sna Stáit arís timpeall meán-Lúnasa. Either way, I'm going to work hard at hitting all the Laethanta over the next three weeks and get everything up to date right into mid-August. Chances are, I'll be incommunicado for about two months, all told. Fun times :) Thanks again and catch ya later! Beir bua - Alison 22:38, 8 Meitheamh 2009 (UTC)

Bhuel. Beidh mé féin "as láthair" ar feadh cúpla seachtain - ó deireadh Mí Meitheamh freisin. Déanfaidh mé féin iarracht gach rud a chur i ord roimhe seo - ach is dócha go mbeadh sé tábhachtach an vóta seo dhúnadh roimhe seo... Guliolopez 09:58, 9 Meitheamh 2009 (UTC)

City Navboxes

I know that there are lots more cities in the US and Italy, but I only listed the big ones in each case, because I thought that people would have more interest in these ones. If you want to though I can make navboxes out of them, Footyfanatic3000 17:23, 17 Meitheamh 2009 (UTC)

Sorry but I need help in creating a navbox for US cities. I'm trying to do it at my sandbox but it's not working properly because I never created one before. Footyfanatic3000 17:54, 17 Meitheamh 2009 (UTC)

You might want to start a bit smaller/simpler. There's some very complex syntax and inheritance in the navbox parent template. The main issue with the navbox on your sandbox however is that it uses CSS styles that we didn't have here. I've updated common.css and so (after you do a shift-refresh/ctrl shift F5) it should look better. I've also removed the indent you had (indents force block quote formatting). In general terms I realise that you know there are more cities in Italy and the USA, but my point was that a casual visitor might not understand where the line was drawn on the members list for a navbox. And so there should be some indication of the membership criteria (whether by footnote, or a more specific title). Beyond that I would recommend that you focus on one navbox first. Perfect it. And then move on to rolling out more. My main concern right now is that there are several new navboxes out there now that need some work in the same areas. Learn the lessons on one first. And those lessons will stand to you on the next one. (You may have noted already that Tameanseo has tweaked a few. Take those lessons on board before pushing ahead.) Anyway, this is all just friendly advice. Best of luck. Guliolopez 20:17, 17 Meitheamh 2009 (UTC)
It does now look better but not perfect. Is there any way around the problem, such as changing the format? Thanks anyway. Footyfanatic3000 20:27, 17 Meitheamh 2009 (UTC)

Riarthóirí discussion

Should it be closed and should Gabriel Beecham be informed? It has been open for a very long time. Footyfanatic3000 22:14, 12 Iúil 2009 (UTC)

Probably. RfA would seem to be closed and it seems the guys have sufficient support from the community to warrant getting an admin token. It would however require - as you note - someone with buro rights to flick the switch. Guliolopez 22:28, 12 Iúil 2009 (UTC)
Could we possibly send an e-mail to a buro? It would probably be best if an admin like you would inform him/her. Footyfanatic3000 13:36, 13 Iúil 2009 (UTC)

Tagging??

I see that you tagged an image that I recently uploaded. Sorry that for the trouble, but how do you tag images? I filled in all the required fields. Footyfanatic3000 20:20, 2 Lúnasa 2009 (UTC)

When uploading an image you need to ensure the copyright status is clear. Otherwise the image may be deleted. Until now I've been "helpful" and have applied a "best fit" template to many images that are uploaded without tags. However that takes time, and I can't keep doing it. (Plus it's really the uploader's responsibility). Anyway, to tag an image with the correct copyright, you should use one of the tags at Catagóir:Clibeanna cóipchirt d'íomhánna. If you took the image yourself, and are happy to see it used on WP, you'll likely want to release as CC3.0, FP-Úsáideoir, or GFDL. If someone else is the author, but the image is free, then you'll need to find the most appropriate license tag. If someone else is the author, but the image is not free, is copyrighted, or otherwise can't be fully released, then the uploader needs to tag it as such and assert some kind of "Fair use" rationale. (But these don't always hold up to scrutiny). In terms of your image, given that the base copyright license for Wikipedia is now CC3.0 (CC-BY-SA), and you had indicated "tá sé saor", I went ahead and applied CC3.0 - as is kind of like the "default" license now. However if you want to update to use another free license, please do so. (Possibly after you've read WP:TAG which explains what each of the main/popular free licenses mean). Guliolopez 12:28, 3 Lúnasa 2009 (UTC)
Ok thanks for your help, I'll make sure to tag any future images that I upload. --Footyfanatic3000 21:38, 4 Lúnasa 2009 (UTC)

Fliú na muc

Are you sure that it's the best option to delete the redirect "fliú na muc" to Paindéim A (H1N1) 2009? Most people would probably use that term to search for the article. A disambiguation page could also be set up there. --Footyfanatic3000 20:40, 31 Lúnasa 2009 (UTC)

If someone wanted to create a page equivalent to en:Swine influenza (disambiguation), then that'd be fine. Where that page might explain that, while some people say "swine flu" when referring to A(H1N1), it strictly isn't accurate. Any actual "swine flu" page (rather than DAB page) should however deal with the strain of flu that affects pigs. We shouldn't however be encouraging the misnomer that people get pure swine flu. Pigs get swine flu. That's why it's called swine flu. What people get is a strain of flu - A(H1N1) - that may have had it's origins in a strain of swine flu, but by definition isn't "swine flu" if a person gets it. Compare to the structure on the EN wiki where:
Cheers Guliolopez 09:36, 1 Meán Fómhair 2009 (UTC)
I see your point, and I suppose swine flu shouldn't really redirect to the page. What do you think we should do? The "fliú na muc" page can't be kept empty. Regards Footyfanatic3000 12:45, 1 Meán Fómhair 2009 (UTC)

Rollback rights: Is it possible here?

Is it possible to apply for rollback rights on this wiki? I find it very useful on the en wiki to have them and they could be useful here too. --Footyfanatic3000 23:07, 29 Meán Fómhair 2009 (UTC)

Ya. I have em. But then all Admins do. Before I was an Admin though I think I had em. It may be that Alison or Gabriel sprinkled some magic dust my way at some point. I thought any admin could bequeath the mystical powers to other trusted users. However I just visited Speisialta:UserRights and I don't seem to have enough sway with the gods to bestow them to you. (The checkboxes to add special rights are greyed out). So maybe only CRATs can wave the wand here. Guliolopez 00:52, 30 Meán Fómhair 2009 (UTC)
Rollback for non-sysops isn't enabled on this wiki. I'll ask a dev to enable it ... just give me a short while here. BTW, thanks for the welcome back note, Footy :) I'm back after about three months' leave - Alison 01:44, 30 Meán Fómhair 2009 (UTC)
A cháirde, I've kicked off a discussion at Vicipéid:Halla baile#Global Rollback discussion - feel free to weigh in and if we've consensus, I'll ask one of the developers to enable it here. Béarla only, so those people can read it too :) - Alison 06:47, 30 Meán Fómhair 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, I guessed that it mightn't have been available as there is no mention of it anywhere here (except for admins). But yes I would support a decision to allow admins to give rollback rights to other users. It would be helpful :) Footyfanatic3000 15:12, 30 Meán Fómhair 2009 (UTC)
After two weeks have elapsed, I've filed a bug to have it enabled :) - Alison 08:35, 14 Deireadh Fómhair 2009 (UTC)

Image copyrights

(Béarla - brón orm ach tá an ábhar seo ró-theicniúil dom!) - Haigh a Ghulio. I've been working on updating AllieBot to automatically tag unlicensed images here and to plop a request (as Béarla ar an am seo) on the uploader's talk page asking them to add the appropriate license. It will also check Commons for a duplicate image already being present, etc, and will log everything to a file. Unlicensed images automatically get put into the 'unlicenced as of (month)' category for review/eventual deletion. It's nowhere near active yet, and I'm still updating the pywikipedia code to report as Ghaeilge, etc and fixing and categorizing 'allowed' templates.

What's your overall opinion on this? Worth doing here? Ditch the idea? - Alison 09:07, 14 Deireadh Fómhair 2009 (UTC)

At this edit summary http://ga.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=British_Airways&diff=next&oldid=272723 you said: "Practically valueless image. (Pic of building with tiny logo))"

This image is not even close to being valueless. It is the world headquarters of British Airways. This "tiny logo" is more than enough to identify it as a BA building. The world headquarters of a company is an inherently valuable image, and it must be in the article. WhisperToMe 02:06, 15 Mí na Samhna 2009 (UTC)

Hi. Thanks for the follow-up. The main reason I removed it (with the note on "limited value") was that there was no context. From a readers perspective, where was the value? I appreciate your point that "it's the HQ building", but how did the reader know this? All the reader sees is a building with a logo on the outside and a label (with no explanation) saying "Waterside"(?) Where "Waterside" isn't mentioned anywhere. Not in the text. Not in the image label. No definition. The pic of the airplane image is identifiable to the reader as (clearly) a BA branded and operated Airbus. The building pic considerably less clear in its relationship to the company under discussion. Guliolopez 13:12, 17 Mí na Samhna 2009 (UTC)
Thank you for the followup! I posted the photo across the Wikipedias so that many language versions covering British Airways would have this image. I don't know Irish, so I was hoping that a reader who did know Irish would understand that the photo was of the HQ and further add to the image caption. WhisperToMe 14:55, 18 Mí na Samhna 2009 (UTC)

Machine translations

I'm in a quandary over those things. While we need articles, they're generally complete garbage. I tried rescuing Stephen King there, but ... I dunno. There's nothing more BITEy though, than nuking someone's first article ("they'll never know I used Google!") on the spot. We agreed to nuke them last month, but it's hard (for me) to see where that line is. Thoughts? - Alison 11:17, 18 Mí na Samhna 2009 (UTC)

To be honest this pattern has also got me thinking about the best approach. Do we (1) keep/tidy/tag, (2) delete on sight, or (3) tag/wait/delete.
On option 1, taking the Ellen MacArthur example, part of me thinks that I should just "hide" the offending content and leave a "stub" article with one or two lines on the subject. IE: Hide all save for a one-liner: "Ellen MacArthur is a sailor from X (born Y, date N)." HOWEVER, in the case of that submission, it was so obviously full of patent nonsense that I couldn't make myself care. The submitter clearly didn't care enough to take even one pass to remove the English. (Take this snippet: "MacArthur i trimaran B & Q / Castorama sailed 27,354 muirmhíle". Even a non-Irish speaker who gave even the slightest hoot would have seen the English in there and removed it.) As a result I therefore don't think that the article will ever be redeemed. And so I shot down option 1 - and plumbed for option 2.
On option 3. If there is even the slightest chance that a machine translation could/would be redeemed then I could see keeping those. But - even still - I would like to see some kind of new header template that said: "We know this is crap. It is not representative of this project's goals. Someone may get to it eventually. If not it will be deleted in X days. For now don't judge us on this nonsense". However if all someone does is copy and paste from Google Translate, and then waits for someone else to clean-up, then I think that should just be nipped right in the bud.
In general (as was my point before) I don't think we have the wherewithal to take all cases of patent nonsense on ourselves. I think we have to push back in the worst cases. Otherwise we may as well allow the creation of a page for every single topic and just add a Google Translate deeplink. IE:
Ellen MacArthur. Níl alt again. Ach féach anseo
If we do that however then we may was well all just retire from this project and focus on the Google Translate project. I really don't think it's what we should be about however. Even well meaning submitters need to recognise that "copy and paste" is not editting. And this project is for people who want to edit. Not just copy and paste.
(FYI - I'm trying very hard not to be bitey in my reactions to "copy and paste" jockeys. Hence I wanted to get a structured approach to un-modified machine translations enshrined in policy/guideline. But the "throw away" nature of some of these submissions makes it hard.) Guliolopez 11:47, 18 Mí na Samhna 2009 (UTC)
I think we're both in agreement, and from the deletion logs, it looks like the other admins are, too. Tell you what, let's import en:Wikipedia:Patent_nonsense in here, point VP:RAIMÉIS to it or something, and make it a shorter bilingual Gae/Bé version to point new folks to. It's going to be down to the individual admin as to whether to salvage/delete, but the way things have been to-date, it's most likely going to be 'delete' and it would be nice to set this in policy as it's going to keep coming up again and again. Thoughts? - Alison 20:24, 23 Mí na Samhna 2009 (UTC)

The 10,000th article

Will we decide on a certain title for the 10,000th article, like they do for major milestones on the en wiki? It may be reported on the Signpost and on newspapers like Foinse, so therefore it might be a good idea to discuss this. --Footyfanatic3000 22:42, 7 Mí na Nollag 2009 (UTC)

Do you mean that we might "keep something decent in reserve" to submit at the right time? Instead of leaving it to chance and having something - eh - less worthy as the milestone article? If so, then I'd tend to agree. But I don't think there's any great rush. Despite being top of the "1000 - 9999" list, current growth rates suggest the 10,000th won't come til Jan/Feb. Guliolopez 22:50, 7 Mí na Nollag 2009 (UTC)
Yes that's what I was thinking, we would write the article in advance and then "release" it. I know that the 10,000th article wouldn't come until the New Year but I thought that that we maybe should start discussing it soon to give ourselves time. If so, where should we start the discussion? Would it be a subpage of the Halla Baile? --Footyfanatic3000 19:44, 8 Mí na Nollag 2009 (UTC)

It is my view that this is an idea of merit. I second the question of the user Footyfanatic on where discussion should be initiated and the feeling that it should be soon enough too allow the necessary time. What might be a good topic for this article? Furthermore, it is my belief that the reaching of such a milestone should be an opportunity for an Viicipéid seo. It may be noted how for example on reaching such a milestone the Vicipéid Bhreatnaise took this opportunity for promotion and to dul i dteagmháil le heagraíochtaí a bhaineann leis an teanga.
