Looking for work?[edit]

Hi BennyOnTheLoose - I hope you are well. If you are interested in creating some more cue sports bios on women, I've got a few that I'd suggest - All of those on this list: List of WPA World Nine-ball champions are notable, such as Vivian Villarreal, Chen Siming, Liu Hsin-mei and Bi Zhu Qing. http://propool.info/ is a good source, as is AZBilliards, which is subscription based, but I have an honorary subscription for. This also includes any winners of the girls/boys/wheelchair events.

I am planning on doing some women's tournament/series articles, such as the Women's Euro Tour and the WPBA Tour, but I'm a bit burned out with creating bios for players (I must have done at least 150). There's also players like Ana Gradisnik, Caroline Roos, Line Kjorsvik, Natalia Seroshtan, Ana MazhirinaMonica Webb, Martine Christiansen and Charlotte Sorensen who all have more than one win on the Euro Tour. Let me know if you are interested in making any of these. Best Wishes, Lee Vilenski (talkcontribs) 11:22, 30 July 2019 (UTC)[reply]

@Lee Vilenski: Yes, hope you're well too, I'm happy to help. I'm on holiday for a week from 1 August, but I'll try to have a look at Vivian Villarreal, Chen Siming, and Liu Hsin-mei for now. I'm also hoping to dig up a bit more on the women's professional snooker championship in the 1930's and 1940's - I've got a few old, brief, newspaper and pictorial sources, but not enough for articles yet. BennyOnTheLoose (talk) 12:35, 30 July 2019 (UTC)[reply]
No worries. No rush, I just thought I'd highlight them (as I thought you'd be interested). I suspect it might be difficult, but checking through the articles on the mens snooker championship articles might give some ideas for reference places. I know The Times covered these events, as would have local press (dependent on venue), globalsnookercentre.co.uk has some info, but you'd have to look through the archives. When was the competition founded? Is it the same competition as the World Women's Snooker Championship? Best Wishes, Lee Vilenski (talkcontribs) 13:08, 30 July 2019 (UTC)[reply]

Hello[edit]

Great to see a new editor writing interesting articles, especially with access to good offline sources. – Teratix 10:09, 9 August 2019 (UTC)[reply]

Cue sports redlink lists[edit]

Hi Benny,

Not sure if you watchlist the cue sports talk page, but I thought you might find the links I placed there helpful. It's at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Cue sports/Archive 1#Missing players lists. There's a load of players and links to foreign language articles for individual players. Might be worth a peruse. Best Wishes, Lee Vilenski (talkcontribs) 12:40, 30 October 2019 (UTC)[reply]

Thanks Lee Vilenski, and belated congratulations on your marriage! I'll check that list out. My next targets are improving the world billiards championship article, articles for all world billiards champions, and improving Ng On-yee. BennyOnTheLoose (talk) 08:25, 1 November 2019 (UTC)[reply]
That english billiards, or carrom? I would recommend WP:CXT, as there are lots of information on the german wikipedia (that's where I got most of the pool BLPs from. [1] might be a good place to start), and some for carrom on fr.wiki. (such as at [2].) Now the wikicup is over, I can put some more work into the background (like templates, and new articles). Best Wishes, Lee Vilenski (talkcontribs) 15:25, 1 November 2019 (UTC)[reply]

Women's snooker[edit]

Hi, I'm hoping you can clear up some confusion for me. I was planning to add achievement boxes similar to Reanne Evans#Achievements for some of the female snooker players. Mandy Fisher#Career Highlights show she won the 1980 Pontins Women's Champion and Sue Foster as being the 1983 Women's World Snooker Championship - sponsored by Pontins. However, the Template:World Women's Snooker Championship and Template:World Women's Snooker champions show Sue Foster as the 1983 winner but 1980's winner as Lesley McIlrath as also shown on 1980 Women's World Open (snooker) at Warners Sinah Warren Holiday Camp, Hayling Island, sponsored by Guinness. So what was the "Pontins Women's Champion" competition that Fisher won in 1980? --The Vintage Feminist (talk) 02:26, 26 August 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Hi, The Vintage Feminist. The Pontins championships for women ran alongside some of the Pontins Open events and were not world championships. I don't think we have those women's tournaments on Wikipedia at the moment - I'll see if I've got the sources to add them in. You may find this a useful resource for some past results going back to 1983 - e.g. see Mandy Fisher. Let me know if there's anything I can help with. Regards, BennyOnTheLoose (talk) 11:26, 26 August 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Pontin's Women's Championships 1977 (first event) to 1984. (Events after 1984 still to be added):

Year Venue Winner Runner-up Final score Ref.
1977 Prestatyn Agnes Davies Sue Foster 3–1 [1]
1978 Prestatyn Ann Johnson Sue Foster 3-1 [1]
1979 Prestatyn Maureen Baynton Agnes Davies 3-0 [1]
1980 Prestatyn Mandy Fisher Sian Newbury 3–2 [1]
1980 Camber Sands A. Burns L. Kellerer 3–1 [1]
1981 Prestatyn Lesley McIlrath J. Hanlon 3–0 [1]
1982 Prestatyn Agnes Davies Sue Foster 3–0 [1]
1983 Prestatyn Sue Foster Grace Nakamura 3–1 [1]
1983 Brean Sands 1983 Women's World Snooker Championship
1984 Prestatyn Julie Dowen L. Lucas 3–2 [1]
1985 Prestatyn Allison Fisher A. Jones 3–0 [1]
1986 Prestatyn Allison Fisher Caroline Walch 3–0 [1]
1987 Prestatyn Stacey Hillyard Caroline Walch 3–1 [2]
1988 Prestatyn Allison Fisher Ann-Marie Farren 4–1 [3]
1989 Prestatyn Ann-Marie Farren Tessa Davidson 3–0 [4]
1990 Prestatyn Stacey Hillyard Georgina Aplin 3–0 [5]
1991 Prestatyn Tessa Davidson Ann-Marie Farren 4–2 [6][7]
1992 Prestatyn Allison Fisher Ann-Marie Farren 3–1 [8]
1993 Prestatyn Allison Fisher Karen Corr 4–3 [9]
1994 Prestatyn Karen Corr Lisa Quick 4–1 [10]
So Sue Foster won the Pontins 1983 Women's World Snooker Championship beating Maureen Baynton 8-5 in the final and also won Pontins 1983 championship for women beating Grace Nakamura 3–1 which was not a world championship. I think that was where I was getting lost. Thanks. --The Vintage Feminist (talk) 16:33, 26 August 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Missing match[edit]

Congrats on finding an unknown World Championship match. Does't happen every day. Nigej (talk) 09:06, 20 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]

I was similarly impressed. I had seen a match in the 1954 NoTW tournament with the two when I was searching for sources, but overlooked it. Clearly a keen eye! Best Wishes, Lee Vilenski (talkcontribs) 09:15, 20 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks Nigej and Lee Vilenski - the May article with the draw was a lucky find. If I'd filtered the search by month I wouldn't have seen it, and then would have had no reason to search for the players' names together in articles. Makes my paid subscription to the British Newspaper Archive worthwhile! Regards, BennyOnTheLoose (talk) 10:32, 20 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Congratulations on the No. 11 DYK hook of 2020![edit]

Hi BennyOnTheLoose. Your account has been added to the "New page reviewers" user group. Please check back at WP:PERM in case your user right is time limited or probationary. This user group allows you to review new pages through the Curation system and mark them as patrolled, tag them for maintenance issues, or nominate them for deletion. The list of articles awaiting review is located at the New Pages Feed. New page reviewing is vital to maintaining the integrity of the encyclopedia. If you have not already done so, you must read the tutorial at New Pages Review, the linked guides and essays, and fully understand the deletion policy. If you need any help or want to discuss the process, you are welcome to use the new page reviewer talk page. In addition, please remember:

  • Be nice to new editors. They are usually not aware that they are doing anything wrong. Do make use of the message feature when tagging pages for maintenance so that they are aware.
  • You will frequently be asked by users to explain why their page is being deleted. Please be formal and polite in your approach to them – even if they are not.
  • If you are not sure what to do with a page, don't review it – just leave it for another reviewer.
  • Accuracy is more important than speed. Take your time to patrol each page. Use the message feature to communicate with article creators and offer advice as much as possible.

The reviewer right does not change your status or how you can edit articles. If you no longer want this user right, you also may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time.

WikiCup 2022 July newsletter[edit]

The third round of the 2022 WikiCup has now come to an end. Each of the sixteen contestants who made it into the fourth round had at least 180 points, which is a lower figure than last year when 294 points were needed to progress to round 4. Our top scorers in round 3 were:

  • Zulu (International Code of Signals) BennyOnTheLoose, with 746 points, a tally built both on snooker and other sports topics, and on more general subjects.
  • Kingdom of Scotland Bloom6132, with 683 points, garnered mostly from "In the news" items and related DYKs.
  • Sammi Brie, with 527, from a variety of submissions related to radio and television stations.

Between them contestants achieved 5 featured articles, 4 featured lists, 51 good articles, 149 DYK entries, 68 ITN entries, and 109 good article reviews. As we enter the fourth round, remember that any content promoted after the end of round 3 but before the start of round 4 can be claimed in round 4. Please also remember that you must claim your points within 14 days of "earning" them. When doing GARs, please make sure that you check that all the GA criteria are fully met. Please also remember that all submissions must meet core Wikipedia policies, regardless of the review process.

If you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is a good article nomination, a featured process, or anything else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews Needed (remember to remove your listing when no longer required). Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. Good luck!

WikiCup 2022 November newsletter[edit]

The 2022 WikiCup has drawn to a close with the final round going down to the wire. The 2022 champion is

  • England Lee Vilenski (1752 points), who won in 2020 and was runner up in both 2019 and last year. In the final round he achieved 3 FAs and 15 GAs, mostly on cue sports. He was closely followed by
  • Kingdom of Scotland Bloom6132 (1732), who specialised in "In the news" items and DYKs, and who has reached the final round of the Cup for the past three years. Next was
  • Zulu (International Code of Signals) BennyOnTheLoose (1238), another cue sports enthusiast, also interested in songs, followed by
  • New York City Muboshgu (1082), an "In the news" contributor, a seasoned contestant who first took part in the Cup ten years ago. Other finalists were
  • Sammi Brie (930), who scored with a featured article, good articles and DYKs on TV and radio stations,
  • United Nations Kavyansh.Singh (370), who created various articles on famous Americans, including an FA on Louis H. Bean, famed for his prediction of election outcomes. Next was
  • Chicago PCN02WPS (292), who scored with good articles and DYKs on sporting and other topics and
  • Toronto Z1720 (25) who had DYKs on various topics including historic Canadians.

During the WikiCup, contestants achieved 37 featured articles, 349 good articles, 360 featured article reviews, 683 good article reviews and 480 In the news items, so Wikipedia has benefited greatly from the activities of WikiCup competitors. Well done everyone! All those who reached the final round will receive awards and the following special awards will be made, based on high performance in particular areas of content creation and review.

WikiCup 2023 March newsletter[edit]

So ends the first round of the 2023 WikiCup. Everyone with a positive score moved on to Round 2, with 54 contestants qualifying. The top scorers in Round 1 were:

  • Unlimitedlead with 1205 points, a WikiCup newcomer, led the field with two featured articles on historical figures and several featured article candidate reviews.
  • New York (state) Epicgenius was in second place with 789 points; a seasoned WikiCup competitor he specialises in buildings and locations in New York.
  • Germany FrB.TG was in third place with 625 points, garnered from a featured article on a filmmaker which qualified for an impressive number of bonus points.
  • United States TheJoebro64, another WikiCup newcomer, came next with 600 points gained from two featured articles on video games.
  • Byzantine Empire Iazyges was in fifth place with 532 points, from two featured articles on classical history.

The top sixteen contestants at the end of Round 1 had all scored over 300 points; these included Berkelland LunaEatsTuna, Thebiguglyalien, Sammi Brie, New England Trainsandotherthings, England Lee Vilenski, Indonesia Juxlos, Unexpectedlydian, Washington (state) SounderBruce, Wales Kosack, BennyOnTheLoose and Chicago PCN02WPS. It was a high-scoring start to the competition.

These contestants, like all the others, now have to start again from scratch. The first round finished on February 26. Remember that any content promoted after that date but before the start of Round 2 can be claimed in Round 2. Some contestants made claims before the new submissions pages were set up, and they will need to resubmit them. Invitations for collaborative writing efforts or any other discussion of potentially interesting work is always welcome on the WikiCup talk page. Remember, if two or more WikiCup competitors have done significant work on an article, all can claim points. If you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is at good article candidates, a featured process, or anywhere else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews Needed.

If you want to help out with the WikiCup, please do your bit to keep down the review backlogs! Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. Good luck!

Josette Simon[edit]

I saw you're about to create a PR for Josette Simon; did you realize that her PR agent is on Wikipedia? TomDale90 is his user name. I mention it because he might have access to sources or information that you could find useful. Might even be worth asking him (or her) to review the article and see if they see any errors or omissions, though of course the risk is that they'll ask for something against policy.

WikiCup 2023 May newsletter[edit]

The second round of the 2023 WikiCup has now finished. Contestants needed to have scored 60 points to advance into round 3. Our top five scorers in round 2 all included a featured article among their submissions and each scored over 500 points. They were:

Other notable performances were put in by Sammi Brie, Thebiguglyalien, MyCatIsAChonk, Chicago PCN02WPS, and London AirshipJungleman29.

So far contestants have achieved thirteen featured articles between them, one being a joint effort, and forty-nine good articles. The judges are pleased with the thorough reviews that are being performed, and have hardly had to reject any. As we enter the third round, remember that any content promoted after the end of round 2 but before the start of round 3 can be claimed in round 3. Remember too that you must claim your points within 14 days of "earning" them.

If you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is at good article nominations, a featured process, or anywhere else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews Needed (remember to remove your listing when no longer required). Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. Good luck!

my story today

Thank you today for the article, on top of all the quality improvement around, "about the year that Cliff Thorburn ground his way to the world title. Coverage of the final was interrupted by the broadcast of live footage of the Iranian Embassy Siege, which caused numerous viewers to complain to the BBC."! - My story today - a first - isn't about an article by me, but one a reviewed for DYK, liking all: topic, "hook", connected article (a GA on its way towards FA), image and the music "in the background". As I just returned from a weekend of weddings, I also like the spirit ;) - besides having listened to The Firebird with one of the bridegrooms in the orchestra. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 07:01, 7 August 2023 (UTC)[reply]

DYK for Shaparak Khorsandi[edit]

On 24 August 2023, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Shaparak Khorsandi, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that Shaparak Khorsandi asked for her book to be removed from the Jhalak Prize longlist, which she considered to be "a sticker for being brown"? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Shaparak Khorsandi. You are welcome to check how many pageviews the nominated article or articles got while on the front page (here's how, Shaparak Khorsandi), and the hook may be added to the statistics page after its run on the Main Page has completed. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.

WikiCup 2023 September newsletter[edit]

The fourth round of the competition has finished, with anyone scoring less than 673 points being eliminated. It was a high scoring round with all but one of the contestants who progressed to the final having achieved an FA during the round. The highest scorers were

  • New York (state) Epicgenius, with 2173 points topping the scores, gained mainly from a featured article, 38 good articles and 9 DYKs. He was followed by
  • Sammi Brie, with 1575 points, gained mainly from a featured article, 28 good articles and 50 good article reviews. Close behind was
  • Thebiguglyalien, with 1535 points mainly gained from a featured article, 15 good articles, 26 good article reviews and lots of bonus points.

Between them during round 4, contestants achieved 12 featured articles, 3 featured lists, 3 featured pictures, 126 good articles, 46 DYK entries, 14 ITN entries, 67 featured article candidate reviews and 147 good article reviews. Congratulations to our eight finalists and all who participated! It was a generally high-scoring and productive round and I think we can expect a highly competitive finish to the competition.

Remember that any content promoted after the end of round 4 but before the start of round 5 can be claimed in round 5. Remember too that you must claim your points within 10 days of "earning" them and within 24 hours of the end of the final. If you are concerned that your nomination will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews. It would be helpful if this list could be cleared of any items no longer relevant. If you want to help out with the WikiCup, please do your bit to keep down the review backlogs! Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. If you wish to start or stop receiving this newsletter, please feel free to add or remove your name from Wikipedia:WikiCup/Newsletter/Send.

I will be standing down as a judge after the end of the contest. I think the Cup encourages productive editors to improve their contributions to Wikipedia and I hope that someone else will step up to take over the running of the Cup. Sturmvogel 66 (talk), and Cwmhiraeth (talk)

Hi, Landplane123 unfortunately I mentioned the wrong policy in my edit summary. Please see WP:BLPPRIMARY: "Do not use ... public documents, to support assertions about a living person.

Women in Green GA Editathon October 2023 - Around the World in 31 Days[edit]

Hello BennyOnTheLoose:

WikiProject Women in Green is holding a month-long Good Article Edit-a-thon event in October 2023!

Running from October 1 to 31, 2023, WikiProject Women in Green (WiG) is hosting a Good Article (GA) edit-a-thon event with the theme Around the World in 31 Days! All experience levels welcome. Never worked on a GA project before? We'll teach you how to get started. Or maybe you're an old hand at GAs – we'd love to have you involved! Participants are invited to work on nominating and/or reviewing GA submissions related to women and women's works (e.g., books, films) during the event period. We hope to collectively cover article subjects from at least 31 countries (or broader international articles) by month's end. GA resources and one-on-one support will be provided by experienced GA editors, and participants will have the opportunity to earn a special WiG barnstar for their efforts.

We hope to see you there!

New pages patrol newsletter[edit]

Hello BennyOnTheLoose,

New Page Review article queue, March to September 2023

Backlog update: At the time of this message, there are 11,300 articles and 15,600 redirects awaiting review. This is the highest backlog in a long time. Please help out by doing additional reviews!

October backlog elimination drive: A one-month backlog drive for October will start in one week! Barnstars will be awarded based on the number of articles and redirects patrolled. Articles will earn 4x as many points compared to redirects. You can sign up here.

PageTriage code upgrades: Upgrades to the PageTriage code, initiated by the NPP open letter in 2022 and actioned by the WMF Moderator Tools Team in 2023, are ongoing. More information can be found here. As part of this work, the Special:NewPagesFeed now has a new version in beta! The update leaves the NewPagesFeed appearance and function mostly identical to the old one, but updates the underlying code, making it easier to maintain and helping make sure the extension is not decommissioned due to maintenance issues in the future. You can try out the new Special:NewPagesFeed here - it will replace the current version soon.

Notability tip: Professors can meet WP:PROF #1 by having their academic papers be widely cited by their peers. When reviewing professor articles, it is a good idea to find their Google Scholar or Scopus profile and take a look at their h-index and number of citations. As a very rough rule of thumb, for most fields, articles on people with a h-index of twenty or more, a first-authored paper with more than a thousand citations, or multiple papers each with more than a hundred citations are likely to be kept at AfD.

Reviewing tip: If you would like like a second opinion on your reviews or simply want another new page reviewer by your side when patrolling, we recommend pair reviewing! This is where two reviewers use Discord voice chat and screen sharing to communicate with each other while reviewing the same article simultaneously. This is a great way to learn and transfer knowledge.

Also pinging Thebiguglyalien. I raised my eyebrow at your (Benny's) objection to The Week In Chess. Do you have a specific problem with it? For decades, while I was following chess news, it was my main online source. I have a superficial grasp of WP:RS but if TWIC doesn't cut it, I don't know why. Thanks for any suggestions.

BTW, I am OK with the change that was made (removing the reference to her win of the 1995 Senior Women's WC), since I think that mentioning her 8th, and noting that it was her 8th, is sufficient for the purposes of this biographical article. Bruce leverett (talk) 03:39, 28 October 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Hi, Bruce leverett. Looking at The Week in Chess, this appeared to be a self-published source. WP:SELFPUBLISH allows these sources under some circumstances, but also says "Never use self-published sources as third-party sources about living people, even if the author is an expert, well-known professional researcher, or writer." Is there already a consensus about the reliability of this source? If not, you could post at Wikipedia:Reliable sources/Noticeboard and seek to establish one. Regards, BennyOnTheLoose (talk) 08:16, 28 October 2023 (UTC)[reply]
WP:SELFPUBLISH makes an exception for the contents of magazines and newspapers, and TWIC is generally treated as a magazine. It has been updated weekly since 1994. I am familiar with the reasons why blogs and self-published websites do not make the cut, but TWIC is nothing like those.
Thanks for pointing out that noticeboard to me. (I may have read about it but forgotten.) I would not have thought there was any question about TWIC, since I am sure that the frequent editors of chess-related articles are regularly citing it. But that's my insular point of view. If you are doubtful about TWIC, I am sure that other editors are, so I will look into the possibility of starting a discussion there or contributing to an existing discussion.

TFL notification for December 2023[edit]

Hi, BennyOnTheLoose. I'm just posting to let you know that List of UK Open Billiards Championship winners – a list that you have been heavily involved with – has been chosen to appear on the Main Page as Today's featured list for December 29. The TFL blurb can be seen here. If you have any thoughts on the selection, please post them on my talk page or at TFL talk. Regards, Giants2008 (Talk) 02:31, 2 December 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Congratulations, BennyOnTheLoose! The article you nominated, John Spencer (snooker player), 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, FrB.TG (talk) via FACBot (talk) 00:05, 3 December 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Archiving using the BOT[edit]

@BennyOnTheLoose: You have just used the BOT to archive refs in the 2023 UK Championship article, and that's generally OK, the BOT works fine. But, like all BOTs, it will make mistakes. So you need to check through manually after you use it. I think it's a really bad idea to archive any of the snooker.org references until well after the end of the tournament and not use a previously archived version (which is what the BOT does), as Hermund Årdalen updates these pages continually. As an example, compare [3] with [4]. The archived version is completely useless. I think these archives need to be removed for now.  Alan  (talk) 14:53, 4 December 2023 (UTC)[reply]

@AlH42: Fair point; feel free to revert any instances you see where I've used the bot. BennyOnTheLoose (talk) 15:51, 4 December 2023 (UTC)[reply]
That all seems to be OK now. That BOT seems to be a very "blunt instrument" so I've stopped using it, in favour of manually archiving stuff as required.  Alan  (talk) 16:55, 4 December 2023 (UTC)[reply]
AlH42: as penance, I've added the little I could to 1990 Shoot-Out. Regards, BennyOnTheLoose (talk) 22:48, 5 December 2023 (UTC)[reply]
Brilliant - thank you.  Alan  (talk) 06:39, 6 December 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Thomas Bradlaugh Leng[edit]

Not sure i can be of much use but ... I found the following [5] which I hope you can read. Relates to the suicide of a Thomas Bradlaugh Leng from an aspirin overdose in 1965. The trouble is that it's not clear that it's the same person. Age 57 fits roughly, but "retired caterer" less so. Probate records have "LENG Thomas Bradlaugh otherwise KEEN Thomas, of 46 Burleigh Mansions Charing Cross Road London W.C.2 died 16 May 1965 at Pembury Hospital Kent Probate London 12 October (1965) to National Provincial Bank Limited. £66884" Obviously £66,000 was a lot of money in 1965. His birth is registered in March 1908 as Thomas Bradlaugh KEEN in West Ham. The trouble is that that's all I have. Still not clear whether it's the same man. Nigej (talk) 14:31, 24 December 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Many thanks, Nigej. Having spent a while looking through records at Ancestry, I'm pretty much convinced this is the same person, but I feel need one more link in the chain before I put it into an article. Much appreciated! Regards, BennyOnTheLoose (talk) 00:28, 3 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]
All very frustrating. Did some more family history stuff myself. Probably he married Ivy Gladys Slyth in Westminster in 1943. Probably no children (per Freebmd). Her birth was registered in March 1911 and she died on 29 December 2014 (probate records). Confusingly she was known as Joy (see https://funeral-notices.co.uk/notice/leng/4208681). I was hoping to find some obituary at her death, but have failed miserably. Nigej (talk) 09:31, 3 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Happy New Year[edit]

Hi there Benny,
Best wishes for the new year. I look forward to working with you again in 2024. I'll start looking over Alex Higgins at some point and we can do another FAC together. Meanwhile, here are some mischievous moggies!
Cheers, Rodney Baggins (talk) 19:17, 30 December 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Happy New Year Rodney Baggins! I'd be interested to see what you think about Higgins's article; I feel it's rather unbalanced at the moment, and needs more detail on his playing career, with perhaps a bit less on some other aspects. The biographies by Borrows and Hennessey are the best book sources I've seen so far (apart from the excellent Masters of the Baize, which is of course less detailed). Regards, BennyOnTheLoose (talk) 01:28, 5 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]

story · music · places

Thank you today for the article, introduced: "Lasting for over 11 minutes, Bob Dylan’s song "Sad Eyed Lady of the Lowlands" occupied an entire side of his 1966 double album Blonde on Blonde. It has polarised music critics." - I wonder why the title in the infobox is like in the official audio, but the article is different. No topic for the next three days, - never even think about moving an article while linked from the Main page. - Sad eyes - I mourn the death of Vami IV, and this image - given to him with thanks for GA Gates of Heaven Synagogue two days before he died - was taken on a cemetery returning from a funeral last year. It pictures a promise, - let's work on the articles he left under construction. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 09:33, 16 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]

... and thank you today for John Spencer (snooker player) - below - introduced: "This article is about three-time world snooker champion John Spencer. Spencer was noted for his cue action, which featured an unusually long backswing that provided immense cue power, allowing him to develop long-distance shots with deep screw and maximum side spin. According to Clive Everton in Billiards and Snooker magazine, Spencer's play in the 1969 World Snooker Championship final "justifiably caused gasps of amazement" from the audience."! --Gerda Arendt (talk) 07:31, 18 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]

The image, taken on a cemetery last year after the funeral of a distant but dear family member, commemorates today, with thanks for their achievements, four subjects mentioned on the Main page and Vami_IV, a friend here. Listen to music by Tchaikovsky (an article where one of the four is pictured), sung by today's subject (whose performance on stage I enjoyed two days ago). --Gerda Arendt (talk) 15:44, 20 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]

WikiCup 2024 February newsletter[edit]

The 2024 WikiCup is off to a flying start, with 135 participants. This is the largest number of participants we have seen since 2017.

Our current leader is newcomer Generalissima (submissions), who has one FA on John Littlejohn (preacher) and 10 GAs and 12 DYKs mostly on New Zealand coinage and Inuit figures. Here are some more noteworthy scorers:

As a reminder, competitors may submit work for the first round until 23:59 (UTC) on 27 February, and the second round starts 1 March. Remember that only the top 64 scoring competitors will make it through to the second round; currently, competitors need at least 15 points to progress. If you are concerned that your nomination will not receive the necessary reviews, and you hope to get it promoted before the end of the round, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews. However, please remember to continue to offer reviews at GAN, FAC and all the other pages that require them to prevent any backlogs which could otherwise be caused by the Cup. As ever, questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup and the judges (Cwmhiraeth (talk · contribs), Epicgenius (talk · contribs), and Frostly (talk · contribs)) are reachable on their talk pages.

Ray Reardon / Snooker TFA[edit]

Hey Benny. Congrats on today's TFA. Am I right in thinking that Ray Reardon has not been on the main page thus far? I was going to suggest nominating him for TFA on 25 April this year, on the 50th anniversary of his third world championship win in 1974, but it appears that the April slots are already filled. Perhaps his 92nd birthday on 8 October? Given his advancing years, he might not be around that much longer to appreciate being on Wikipedia's main page! Rodney Baggins (talk) 18:41, 18 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Rodney Baggins yes, I'd be keen to see either on the main page. I guess there might be some push back as Thorburn and Spencer have already been TFA's this year, but no harm in seeing how a nomination fares. Regards, BennyOnTheLoose (talk) 22:07, 18 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]

P.S. I was going to also point out that the main Snooker article has never been TFA, any thoughts? Pinging @Lee Vilenski: about that one too! Rodney Baggins (talk) 18:47, 18 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]

WikiCup 2024 March newsletter[edit]

The first round of the 2024 WikiCup ended at 23:59 (UTC) on 27 February. Everyone with at least 30 points moved on to Round 2, the highest number of points required to advance to the second round since 2014. Due to a six-way tie for the 64th-place spot, 67 contestants have qualified for Round 2.

The following scorers in Round 1 all scored more than 300 points:

In this newsletter, the judges would like to pay a special tribute to Vami_IV (submissions), who unfortunately passed away this February. At the time of his death, he was the second-highest-scoring competitor. Outside the WikiCup, he had eight other featured articles, five A-class articles, eight other good articles, and two Four Awards. Vami also wrote an essay on completionism, a philosophy in which he deeply believed. If you can, please join us in honoring his memory by improving one of the articles on his to-do list.

Remember that any content promoted after 27 February but before the start of Round 2 can be claimed in Round 2. Invitations for collaborative writing efforts or any other discussion of potentially interesting work is always welcome on the WikiCup talk page. Remember, if two or more WikiCup competitors have done significant work on an article, all can claim points. If you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is at good article candidates, a featured process, or anywhere else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews Needed. If you want to help out with the WikiCup, feel free to review one of the nominations listed on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews Needed. Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages. Good luck!

Hi, if you happen to come across the following book on your travels in the British Library I would be very interested and grateful to know the contents:

Paley, Ruth, ed. (2016). The House of Lords 1660–1715. Vol. 3. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press. p. 474.

I don't know if that page is the entirety of the relevant content, but it should relate to Thomas Howard, 5th Duke of Norfolk and his life and/or madness. Thanks, Pickersgill-Cunliffe (talk) 21:47, 28 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Ray Reardon and Eddie Charlton titles[edit]

Hi Benny, Did i read correctly that you have titles to add for the above players to their career finals records. Did I read Ray Reardon beat Alex Higgins in the 1972 Castle Professional and Eddie Charlton beat Alex Higgins in the 1972 Marackville International in Australia. Will you add these titles when you get a chance Benny ?. Thanks 31.200.185.105 (talk) 12:52, 25 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]
