I had to discuss...[edit]

Hi, Green Giant. I had to discuss something about few of my articles. It would be better if we had a real-time discussion on IRC. But if not, email-based is also fine. So could you please come by on IRC? Or should I send an email instead? (It is time sensitive.)

@Acagastya: It depends on when you want to discuss it. If right now, I’m on a coffee break at work and can’t chat. I’ll probably finish at 17:30 UTC. What time would suit you? -Green Giant (talk) 07:30, 14 April 2021 (UTC)
1730 UTC seems all right, Green Giant. That is 11 PM my time, and I should be available on IRC on the usual wikinews and commons' channel. Please ping me once you are online.

Sorry but I have been delayed in the office. I’ve just got home and need to sleep. I have a late shift tomorrow so I’ll be on IRC tomorrow evening about 20:00 UTC. -Green Giant (talk) 21:26, 14 April 2021 (UTC)
I had figured you might have gotten preoccupied with something else. I can't assure about 2000 UTC. I may or may not be sleeping that time, it is 1:30 for me. But guess we will have to try. If I am going to sleep, I would most likely inform ImprWikiImpr, so you don't end up losing time.

how about now, Green Giant? If it is not too late? (talk) 02:54, 16 April 2021 (UTC)

It’s 4am here and I should sleep because work starts at 9am. Will you be online at 14:00 UTC? I’m going to be working from home and my last meeting finishes at 13:30 UTC. --Green Giant (talk) 02:57, 16 April 2021 (UTC)
sure, 1400 is all right for me. Also, thanks for cleaning up the mess while I was afk. (talk) 03:02, 16 April 2021 (UTC)
Today, perhaps?
•–• 07:22, 17 April 2021 (UTC)
Yes, definitely today. In about four hours, I’ll be free. -Green Giant (talk) 07:25, 17 April 2021 (UTC)

Wikinews interviews Democratic candidate for the Texas 6th congressional district special election Daryl Eddings, Sr's campaign manager[edit]

Could you please sight User:Acagastya and my edits? Thanks Face-smile.svg --JJLiu112 (talk) 17:34, 20 April 2021 (UTC)

That would not be needed -- since I can sight these non-substantial changes I have made. But I cannot sight if I were to add an image.

Irish Finance Minister Donohoe criticises OECD for global minimum corporate tax rate[edit]

Hi, Green Giant. It is highly unlikely I can review this on time. Any chance you could review it? It was my fault not getting to it sooner, but if you can have a shot at it, that would be great!

Hi, Green Giant. This article which I am reviewing uses this image. It is extremely small in resolution and lacks EXIF. I am agnostic to whether it is actually an own work or not -- it is the only upload of the person. What do you suggest we do? Right now I think I will publish it without it -- but better to get a second opinion.

Also thanks for commons=no. Somehow I just could not recall. Thanks for that, Green Giant. (talk) 19:48, 10 May 2021 (UTC)
@Acagastya: I think the photo should be removed from the article. I’ve looked at the uploader’s other files on English Wikipedia and I’m not convinced they understand copyright or licensing. I have nominated this particular file for deletion on Commons. --Green Giant (talk) 20:25, 10 May 2021 (UTC)
