Per WP:NATFEAT, don't we need more than "statistics and coordinates" to establish notability of a river? voorts (talk/contributions) 03:01, 3 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Gimme a sec. Schwede66 03:04, 3 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
No rush. voorts (talk/contributions) 03:06, 3 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Good enough, Voorts? Schwede66 03:55, 3 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Ah, something else to add (source of the name "Brown"). Schwede66 03:59, 3 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

I have sent you a note about a page you started[edit]

Hi Schwede66. Thank you for your work on 1867 New Zealand census. Another editor, Dclemens1971, has reviewed it as part of new pages patrol and left the following comment:

Thank you for creating this article!

Haha, that's a cute message, Dclemens1971. All I did some 8 years ago was to set up a redirect. You might want to thank Wainuiomartian for actually writing the page. Schwede66 03:50, 9 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Auto-response generated through New Pages Patrol but yes, thanks to @Wainuiomartian! Dclemens1971 (talk) 13:31, 9 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

NZ Census articles[edit]

Hi, I hope this is the right place to contact you. I am working my way through New Zealand census pages, adding content and infoboxes. The infoboxes are not consistent - some say Country: New Zealand and some say Colony of New Zealand. Since the heading of the infobox says "Fifth census of the Colony of New Zealand" (or whichever it is), is it okay to just use 'New Zealand' for the country? Anything else I should attend to? Thanks. Wainuiomartian (talk) 20:58, 10 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Thanks for tidying up that series and writing missing editions, Wainuiomartian. I’ve had to think about that and look around now. I’ve concluded that "New Zealand" should be used in the infoboxes. In the end, I’ve cast my eye over 'what links here' for the Colony of New Zealand article and if it was generally referred to from equivalent articles (e. g. YYYY in New Zealand), I would have seen it there, but that wasn’t the case. With regards to content, if you get guidance from the more developed articles, you should be good.
Unrelated to the above, let me take the opportunity to thank you for your very good work on a certain biography. It’s much appreciated. Schwede66 21:34, 10 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
You're welcome! Wainuiomartian (talk) 02:47, 11 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Auto patrolled request[edit]

Hey, hope you're doing fine. I've done everything you have suggested me do here, and followed the edit summary instructions you've given such as default sorting my previous articles, fixing PP and P in citations, using SFN template and using Book or Journal templates in Bibliography, etc. I've also created half a dozen new articles as per your suggestion, and I believe they are unproblematic. Regards. X (talk) 04:55, 13 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Ok, thanks. Please copy the request to WP:PERM/A, Xoak. Schwede66 05:14, 13 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Done. That Mussel Inn video was wholesome. Checked your activities and read some news articles on you. You've been really great and creative. Thanks for all your work and time on this project. X (talk) 05:20, 13 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
My pleasure! Appreciate the nice feedback. Schwede66 05:21, 13 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Main page photo[edit]

Good evening! Could you add the current main page in the news photo to the category commons:Category:May 2024 solar storms in Australia? --Prosperosity (talk) 07:34, 13 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Oh, and commons:Category:May 2024 in Melbourne. --Prosperosity (talk) 07:40, 13 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
No, sorry. I can't. I'm not an admin on Commons, Prosperosity. Like you, I'll have to wait until the protection comes off, and then everyone can do that. Schwede66 08:54, 13 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
No worries! The image finally lost protection so I've been able to do it just now. Prosperosity (talk) 20:50, 16 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Autopatrol request[edit]

Hi Schwede! I would like to inquire about the status of my autopatrol rights application, which has been pending for two weeks. I have noticed that you have already reviewed four applications that were submitted after mine. Please inform me if there is any issue with my application that is contributing to the delay. Thanks! - Prince of EreborThe Book of Mazarbul 05:34, 14 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

It’ll happen. There’s sometimes quite a bit of jumping around regarding the order of assessments. Schwede66 08:34, 14 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

 You are invited to join the discussion at WP:THQ § Error message. -- Marchjuly (talk) 10:21, 14 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Hi Schwede66. The above-mentioned Wikipedia Teahouse question is related to Filip Geljo, which you had indefinitely protected as a redirect earlier this year due to persistent vandalism. I don't think the creation of the article is vandalism, but I'm not whether the page's protection needs to be change now that the page is no longer a redirect. -- Marchjuly (talk) 10:25, 14 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks for letting me know, Marchjuly, that it’s now an article. I’ve removed the protection. Schwede66 15:22, 14 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

ITN image[edit]

Hi there Schwede66. The Slovakia PM had already been up over 24h. Is there a specific reason that you swapped it back and removed the Singapore PM so soon? —Bagumba (talk) 21:55, 16 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Sorry, Bagumba, I wanted to do what you had done a few minutes before me. Brain fade! I've self-reverted. Schwede66 22:42, 16 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
No worries. It wouldn't have been the first time I did something absent-minded. Best. —Bagumba (talk) 04:22, 17 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Declined request[edit]

Hello. I noticed you declined my request for autopatrolled. In your edit summaries on my talk pages you say "still a stub (not enough prose)", but the way I write my articles are perfectly fine. In that diff you shown that "I removed the bare URLS" tag is when I added info to an reference, I did not remove anything because it was still there also same as the orphan tag, but I linked my articles. I forgot to remove the orphan tag off the article and forgot to fill in one more bare URL. Next, I removed the bare URLS tag. The diffs you give don't have anything to do with what you are saying. "As an aside, removing unpleasant messages from your talk archive is not something you should do.", but sometimes I do want to have an talk page archive, sometimes I don't. The way I use my dashes is in what my computer uses, not endashes per MOS:DASH. The categories are alright, what are wrong with them? You did not say anything about that. You went ahead and fixed the dashes in my articles. Stubs are okay and they have no problem, even if they are "short" like I said about your edit summaries. Thank you. TheGreatestLuvofAll (talk) 13:14, 17 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

TheGreatestLuvofAll, it shouldn't worry you one bit whether you are autopatrolled, as it gives you zero benefits. Being autopatrolled is of benefit to new page patrollers. The only reason that some editors are obsessed with this user right is because of hat collecting, which isn't looked upon favourably. If you disagree with my decision, please feel free to post another request at Wikipedia:Requests for permissions/Autopatrolled; I will leave this for another admin to assess. Schwede66 20:28, 17 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
@Schwede66 No it is alright. I was just posting this because I couldn’t comment on the RFP because it was archived by a bot and I was on break that time. I do want rights but I know I have a lot of things in the way to obtain rights. I will try again next time. Thanks again. TheGreatestLuvofAll (talk) 21:15, 17 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
