September thanks[edit]

Thank you today for Mr. Dooley, introduced: "This article is about... a fictional Irish-American bartender who was very real to those who lived in the Progressive Era. Mr. Dooley, whose homespun wisdom was generated by journalist Finley Peter Dunne, was noted for sayings that outlasted their creator, such as "the Supreme Court follows the election returns" and "politics ain't bean-bag". I'd like to read what he would have to say about the current campaign. I discovered Mr. Dooley in law school, and was surprised we had no article. Enjoy." - Enjoyed! + an invitation to open monuments --Gerda Arendt (talk) 06:55, 12 September 2021 (UTC)[]

... with some monuments now pictured if you click on "songs" - today: the day of bold red and black, for Dante who died 700 years ago, and Peter Fleischmann who died recently, leaving us films full of vision. Dante: just heard Inferno, imagined by a woman, the main character both speaking and singing with an inner 4-part voice! --Gerda Arendt (talk) 19:11, 14 September 2021 (UTC)[]

moar today: Fidelio, and my brother was in the orchestra, 10 July, as he was when I heard Andreas Schager as Tristan in 2021. (I heard Schager singing "Wehwalt muss ich mich nennen" in Wiesbaden, later). Remember that I said we'd hear more of him? He was Siegfried at the Met, - glimpses. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 10:41, 16 September 2021 (UTC)[]

I remember. Thank you.--Wehwalt (talk) 12:46, 19 September 2021 (UTC)[]
Thank you for improving articles in September! On Peace Day, Gerda Arendt (talk) 11:01, 21 September 2021 (UTC)[]
Yes, I understand.--Wehwalt (talk) 19:26, 21 September 2021 (UTC)[]
Today: a woman in red (Omas gegen Rechts), two who died under "in memoriam" and LouisAlain missed - my first editnotice read: "Every editor is a human being" which is quoted from a comment by Geometry guy in a 2012 discussion on WP:AN. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 15:14, 27 September 2021 (UTC)[]

Happy First Edit Day![edit]

Promotion of Apollo 16[edit]

Cscr-featured.svgCongratulations, Wehwalt! The article you nominated, Apollo 16, has been promoted to featured status, recognizing it as one of the best articles on Wikipedia. The nomination discussion has been archived.
This is a rare accomplishment and you should be proud. If you would like, you may nominate it to appear on the Main page as Today's featured article. Keep up the great work! Cheers, Gog the Mild (talk) via FACBot (talk) 00:06, 28 September 2021 (UTC)[]

October thanks[edit]

Thank you today for Long Island Tercentenary half dollar, about "another in the series of commemorative coins issued in 1936. This one at least sold well and was scandal-free."! - Sharing the page with (RD) Carlisle Floyd. That great opera composer had a practically unsourced bio, - a shame. Thanks to Aza24 and others, that is cured. Compare Wilfried Gruhn, the author is blocked (see above, September). For what? (WP:AN, long thread which is illuminating what we do to each other, and nobody reasonable wants to get involved, and I even understand that, but I miss a friend.) - Pics and music for you, and another opera is planned for tomorrow. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 06:21, 6 October 2021 (UTC)[]

Today: DYK #1700, and I uploaded more images, mostly blue and green, for hope. The blocked editor translated the article. AN: some claim that sometimes a red link is better than an article, and I'd agree for propagande and maliciousness about living persons, but an architect? ... a museum? ... a musicologist? What's there contentious that absolutely needs references. The German Wikipedia has references not inline but as books, - can't we accept that, at least temporarily, and work on it together? I don't believe that draft space is the answer, - who will ever notice new articles there?? I see them when they pop up on my watchlist. I feel that I need to do something but also that I don't speak a language that would be understood over there. Music is better, - Handel opera yesterday. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 11:14, 8 October 2021 (UTC)[]

User:Satrar[edit]

Would you mind taking a look at Satrar? They've been POV pushing and are making disruptive edits at Separatist movements of Pakistan,CAC/PAC JF-17 Thunder, and Para (Special Forces), and they are now making personal attacks when I tried to discuss it with them. They clearly are not here to build an encyclopedia. - ZLEA T\C 13:17, 7 October 2021 (UTC)[]

I appreciate the confidence, but I don't do that side of adminship.--Wehwalt (talk) 13:42, 8 October 2021 (UTC)[]
That's fine, thanks anyway. - ZLEA T\C 14:08, 8 October 2021 (UTC)[]

Apollo 16[edit]

Original Barnstar.png The Original Barnstar
To Wehwalt, for extraordinary effort in elevating Apollo 16 to FA status. Tyrol5 [talk] 21:19, 10 October 2021 (UTC)[]

It had been some time since I had visited (much less worked on) the Apollo 16 page (and even longer since it had been elevated to GA), so you can imagine my pleasant surprise when the gold star appeared at the top, at long last. It made my day, and I thank you for investing your time in bringing it up to snuff for, and shepherding it through, the FAC process. I'd thought about tossing the Teamwork Barnstar here, but felt it would diminish the proximity and volume of your efforts and unduly inflate the role of my own, long ago. In any case, a decade long tag-team effort amongst countless editors marks a stunning transformation from where the article stood a decade ago and is a testament to the Project's collaborative spirit. Well done. Tyrol5 [talk] 21:19, 10 October 2021 (UTC)[]

Thanks. Your work in making such a solid foundation is greatly appreciated. I did not know who had done what, and would happily have added you as a co-nominator. If you worked on Apollo 17, when I get to it. I'd be glad to do that.--Wehwalt (talk) 21:44, 10 October 2021 (UTC)[]
Not a worry. I'm happy to have played a small part. I did do similar work on Apollo 17 in bringing it to GAN, and I would certainly be pleased to join as a co-nominator when it finally goes to FAN. It will need a bit of tidying (and probably should see a bit of expansion) before then, so I also will look to allot some time to it once more. Tyrol5 [talk] 22:13, 11 October 2021 (UTC)[]

Help[edit]

Some information keeps getting posted to Loudoun County Public Schools by an anon. See [1] and [2]. I think it is inaccurate and not the right place for the information but I am not sure and so I wasn't sure where to bring this up to have more experienced editors make a decision on it. Thought you may have some thoughts on how to get the community to watch this. I also don't have much time to deal with this right now so trying to get other eyes on it so I don't have to work on it now. Remember (talk) 18:43, 15 October 2021 (UTC)[]

It may be appropriate to take it to AN/I. It is not something I feel comfortable acting on. It is good to see you, long time no see.--Wehwalt (talk) 18:49, 15 October 2021 (UTC)[]
Thank you AN/I it is! Good to talk to you too! Keep up the great work! Remember (talk) 19:07, 15 October 2021 (UTC)[]
