October thanks[edit]

October songs
my story today

Thank you for improving articles in October, including this one! - Today, it's a place that inspired me, musings if you have time. My corner for memory and music has today a juxtaposition of what our local church choirs offer. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 13:44, 20 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thank you for scheduling December. For the lost operas by Handel, File:Handel quando jovem.jpg might be the better match than one showing the composer in his 40s instead of 17, however, Brian used to mention that it is not certain that Handel is pictured. Perhaps the title page of Almira? - I thought of Brian today, and in more detail here. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 21:11, 29 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I'll look at it when I can. Wehwalt (talk) 21:26, 29 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I looked at it. I'd rather stick with something definitely Handel and the problem with the title page is that it's not used in the article.--Wehwalt (talk) 00:41, 30 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
The Handel image is also not used in the article, and so misleading that I'd rather do without any pic. I'll add the title page to the article later - good example of the style of printing at the time! - but am on vacation and behind with many more urgent things, going out for the day within minutes. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 10:12, 30 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I'm back home, and we have now a youthful Handel pic in the article, and the title page of the opera libretto. The pic is in Rinaldo (opera), and the description looks sufficiently serious to me, - seems as if just the colorated version was not so. Your choice, and any of the two and even no pic better than the composer three to four times the age we deal with in the article. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 12:30, 3 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I don't mind if you change it. Wehwalt (talk) 21:17, 3 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Towards the end of the month, I thought of Brian Bouldton, and his ways to compromise, - with musings about peace there, - feel free to join. Hevenu shalom aleichem. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 16:16, 31 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I miss Brian. A great loss not only for Wikipedia. Wehwalt (talk) 18:39, 31 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Hi Wehwalt! I noticed that it seems my newly-promoted FA C. O. Brocato is scheduled to be TFA on December 4, 2023 (with you writing the blurb). Just wondering, what determines what dates the articles are put on the main page - is it random, or does it have to be a date relating to the article in question, or can it be a date requested by the user who brought it to FA, etc.? Thanks. BeanieFan11 (talk) 15:14, 28 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I had a hole in the schedule to fill and yours was just promoted. Do you have views on the date?--Wehwalt (talk) 15:15, 28 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Could it be featured on December 19? That date is special to me for personal reasons and I'd really like it if it could be featured then. Thanks, BeanieFan11 (talk) 15:22, 28 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
December 19 is good. I'll change it as soon as I can.--Wehwalt (talk) 15:26, 28 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi. Tim riley is feeling better but not feeling up to WP yet (he says he is still "fuzzy-headed"). I don't know if he is aware that Messager is at TFA, but I doubt he feels like checking it yet in prep for the TFA. I'm pretty sure the content hasn't suffered any degradation, but you may want to give any technical stuff a glance. In any case, it's scheduled for the end of December, which should give him plenty of time. -- Ssilvers (talk) 22:21, 30 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

OK. I was in touch with him at the end of September and he was fine. Scary how fast things can happen. Wehwalt (talk) 22:48, 30 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

November songs
my story today

Thank you for having scheduled December! - Brownsea Island Scout camp is up for FAR. - I'm in the process of uploading images from the latest trip to Ibiza, slowly, second day if you click on "songs" ;) Gerda Arendt (talk) 21:39, 8 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Next day of pics - today my topic is a soprano. There's discussion on the talk about the addition of "Jewish", in case of interest. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 21:59, 17 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thank you for improving article quality in November! - My story today is a DYK hook from 13 years ago OTD: about the great music at one of my churches. Mozart's Requiem to come on Sunday, - perhaps watch the video of our last production, our first on yt, ever. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 16:17, 21 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]


I know past tributes have been done, but when NBC has "Heidi" herself doing a whole spiel, it kicks it up a notch, thus it makes it worth noting. Vjmlhds (talk) 19:02, 13 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

archive talk[edit]

Wehwalt, i'm planning to follow the same practice on the december tfa archive talk page as i currently am on the november tfa archive talk page, but i just wanted to check in with you to see if you had any feedback or special requests before i get started. dying (talk) 23:59, 15 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I really haven't followed it closely, so just do what you normally do and if there's anything I'll let you know.--Wehwalt (talk) 01:57, 16 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Would you mind removing my MMS user group? I have not used it in a while and I just now remembered that I still have it. - ZLEA T\C 20:49, 19 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
