History of Christianity[edit]

Yes, I'm back. I know you're thrilled. I have now added some on Eastern Christianity in every section up to the 1500s. I have not completed the Late Middle Ages or the modern East yet, but I will. My concern now is that the article is once again getting too long - with even more to come. It is now 13508 words. I'm sure there are details that can be edited down, but that is not my strong suit. I need help. Would you be willing to partner with me? Please don't say no just because I occasionally disagree. I will always go check and come back and admit error when I am wrong. You are reasonable and fair and seem to genuinely care about quality, and in my mind that's what matters most. I can, do, and will cooperate on that basis. Your input has already made this article better. It's a really big topic - too much for one person. Please help. Jenhawk777 (talk) 22:46, 23 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]

If you don't want to, that's fine, no hard feelings, but I would appreciate a response so I can ask someone else if needed. Thank you. Jenhawk777 (talk) 15:27, 25 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Sorry Jenhawk777, completely missed this. Yes, I'm willing to help, but I'm quite busy at the moment, both in RL and on-wiki. But this will be a many-month process (if not more) so I don't think that will be a bad thing, and I know other editors are available to consult in their various specialities. If you like, I can take some time in the next couple of days to note down some general issues. ~~ AirshipJungleman29 (talk) 15:53, 25 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Praise the wiki gods, hallelujah, and amen! I am so glad. I have already spent more time on this than any other article I have ever worked on, so what's a few more months? I would love to have editors with specialized knowledge tell me what's missing. The Middle Ages is not an era I know much about - although I have learned a lot from working on this article, I have made a few errors in the process, and while I think they have all been caught, having an expert review it would be grand. I know that I don't know, but I don't know what I don't know - if you get my meaning. I include you in that category of experts, so any of your general issues will be valuable. I am well aware the article is still far from what it should be, but I need input not condemnation, so I have high hopes for a good result working with you. I am looking forward to it. Thank you again and again. Jenhawk777 (talk) 16:41, 25 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Where should I look for this? Jenhawk777 (talk) 17:10, 30 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]
I can leave it on the talk page, or you can reopen the peer review/start a new one Jenhawk777. Which do you prefer? ~~ AirshipJungleman29 (talk) 17:16, 30 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Whatever we do, I would just like it to be clear we are starting something new. On the talk page as a new topic is fine, but a peer review is also fine. I don't suppose the format really matters, I just want it to be a fresh start. Jenhawk777 (talk) 19:43, 30 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Okay. If you open another PR Jenhawk777 I'll try to leave comments today or tomorrow. In any case, the previous PR closed rather quickly; it is normal for them to be open for months, so that people have a chance to notice and leave their thoughts. ~~ AirshipJungleman29 (talk) 13:48, 31 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]
I had no idea! I was all stressed because it was just sitting there! I kept trying to fix everything quickly, as if it was a GA review or something, and I couldn't! Well, duh! Okay, in that case, I don't mind just continuing on with that one then. That will give others the opportunity to input as well, and that's - almost always - a good thing. Is that cool with you? Jenhawk777 (talk) 21:21, 31 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]
OOPs! I just went there and saw it's closed. What's the proper protocol now? Jenhawk777 (talk) 21:24, 31 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Okay, so, I am trying to be accommodating, and you are trying to be accommodating, and if we aren't careful we will become a Henry James short story... :-) I will go open that new PR and bring a link to it here. Jenhawk777 (talk) 16:35, 1 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

here it is: [1] Jenhawk777 (talk) 17:30, 1 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Thank you Jenhawk777; sorry, I have been rather busy the last few days with family visiting.
Not relevant to the article, but very relevant to you getting it to FA: you must try to review a few other nominations at WP:FAC. Not doing so is a sure-fire way to ensure that your nomination will likely fail, because in addition to you getting to grips with the FA criteria from the other side, through reading the reviews of others and seeing where they support/oppose, your own nomination will more likely be successful. Every experienced FAC nominator you ask will say the same thing (example). Nominations currently up which you may find interesting include for Cross Temple, Fangshan, and Crusading movement, both of which have attracted reviewers you may recognise. I would suggest that you read over both nominations; you don't have to comment yourself, but of course you can if you have something to say. ~~ AirshipJungleman29 (talk) 14:45, 2 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
I have done GA reviews but never an FA. I guessed - wrongly apparently - that I needed to be able to write one before being qualified to review other's work. I am happy to go look and make comments that I feel able to make. Don't apologize! I had family this weekend too, and that's a good thing - though often exhausting. You are doing the favor here. Do what you can at your own pace. I will never complain.Jenhawk777 (talk) 17:56, 2 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
I have now done a PR of Existence and am going to Crusading Movement next. Thank you for this suggestion! It's a nice break. Jenhawk777 (talk) 01:23, 3 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
I made two whole comments! Jenhawk777 (talk) 02:03, 3 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Nice start! ~~ AirshipJungleman29 (talk) 02:04, 3 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Jenhawk777, the Crusading movement FAC has now been archived. This is a nice learning opportunity for us. What did you learn from participating in that FAC, which may be relevant when you nominate HoC (or another article) there? ~~ AirshipJungleman29 (talk) 14:26, 7 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Observed that a tag for tone was added on the Legend section. Request you to kindly elaborate on your concerns or suggest on the improvements required. Redtigerxyz Talk 18:00, 30 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Redtigerxyz, I would suggest that attribution to the legendary events is more clearly defined, and if possible, more reliable sources should be found than [2] and [3]. ~~ AirshipJungleman29 (talk) 18:07, 30 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]
About legendary events, the entire section is labelled "legend". Also, have added "as per Hindu legend", "is said", "is believed" to indicate the Legendary nature of the info.
Dinamalar and Maalai Malar are established leading Tamil news agencies. The temple is of regional importance, primarily in the Tamil sphere. Dinamalar's Tamil temple site ( is very active with Tamil temple info and also publishes a weekly magazine on the subject
Happy to incorporate more of your suggestions on the subject. Redtigerxyz Talk 15:40, 31 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Hi AirshipJungleman29, request your inputs. Redtigerxyz Talk 03:15, 6 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

April music[edit]

story · music · places

Thank you today for your nice DYK which escaped this page already, but it is featured also on Portal:Germany, - welcome to that. We run a beauty contest in the same set, and yours will win because it's a woman, - that's the impression I get from reading the recent stats there ;) - Congrats also to another GA! - Can you help me to a hook for Youth Symphony Orchestra of Ukraine, perhaps? It doesn't matter too much what we say, - key fact is that they still exist. The founder and conductor is a miracle and deserves to be mentioned. -- Gerda Arendt (talk) 14:39, 5 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Something as simple as "...that Youth Symphony Orchestra of Ukraine, founded by Oksana Lyniv in 2016, toured ten European festivals the summer after being evacuated from the Russian invasion of their country?" could work. ~~ AirshipJungleman29 (talk) 14:33, 7 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
I'll suggest it, but - as you know - I'd rather link to music than the invasion again. Today I see Marian Anderson as my top story (by NBC, 1939). --Gerda Arendt (talk) 14:25, 9 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
A hook similar to your suggestion is found to be approved, but I have to make drastic changes to the article - help welcome --- plum tree blossom for Kalevi Kiviniemi in the snow - see my talk --Gerda Arendt (talk) 20:26, 11 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

GA reviews page now up to date[edit]

I've fixed the logging issue; let me know if you see any errors in this. Mike Christie (talk - contribs - library) 16:43, 7 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]


Hi User:AirshipJungleman29. Hope I'm not bugging you or anything but could you possibly leave some comments on this peer review about the Aston Martin DB9 article? Thanks (and don't feel obliged to.) Best,  750h+ | Talk  18:42, 7 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

One comment I have upon immediately looking at the article: it needs to make much better use of the books in the bibliography section. Web sources are great for ease of access, but they make it difficult to ensure that the article is a) comprehensive and b) balanced in its coverage, both part of the FA criteria alongside c) well-researched. I would recommend trying to get your hands on some of the books (Loveys 2015, Noakes 2019 and especially Taylor 2024 are the ones most essential to my eyes) and incorporating them into the article. Hope that helps 750h+. ~~ AirshipJungleman29 (talk) 19:15, 7 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Given that this article focuses on a very modern automobile (produced from 2004 to 2016), and particularly considering the scarcity of books centered around cars produced from the 1990s (the nominator of the Holden Commodore (VE) WP:FFA stated that he could only find one book), locating books on this subject can be challenging. If necessary however I could certainly look around for any more books.  750h+ | Talk  19:23, 7 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
I do not think there will be any shortage of books on Aston Martin, one of the most iconic British brands of the modern age. ~~ AirshipJungleman29 (talk) 19:25, 7 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
I’ll take a look around.  750h+ | Talk  19:26, 7 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
I have substituted a few of the web sources with books? Like I did say, I can’t most sources books since this is a newer car, but I’d like to know what you think right now. (This isn’t sourced by random sources, it’s sourced by established magazines and newspapers, with only a few websites included).  750h+ | Talk  19:49, 7 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
There definitely isn’t a shortage of books on Aston Martin itself, however, focusing on modern individual models, such as the DB9, there is.  750h+ | Talk  19:51, 7 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
