Thanks - a considerable improvement. Wikidemon (talk) 18:11, 20 November 2008 (UTC)

Stem (bicycle part)[edit]

Nice work on the Stem article! 842U (talk) 22:01, 24 November 2008 (UTC)

You did all the work. I just tweaked the results. Hope you don't mind. -AndrewDressel (talk) 22:09, 24 November 2008 (UTC)
I'm not sure what this means "The threadless stem's centering can be adjusted without disturbing handlebar height." -AndrewDressel (talk) 13:44, 25 November 2008 (UTC)

With a threadless stem, if the handlebars aren't centered, facing forward, you can adjust that centering and because the headset can only rotate and not move up or down, you won't disturb the handlebar height. On a quill stem, the second you free up the stem to adjust it, you have to manage the stem in two dimensional planes: lateral as well as vertical.

Maybe there's a better way of saying this in the article. 842U (talk) 14:18, 25 November 2008 (UTC)

NYC clean-up[edit]

Barnstar[edit]

Well I know how tempting it can be to just walk away from an argument, especially one against a stubborn mule -- and sometimes walking away is the right thing to do, but I think the MoS over-reactions in this case merited your continued arguing and hopefully common sense will prevail in the end. So thanks, "on behalf of the project", for not taking the easy way out. Sherurcij (speaker for the dead) 00:19, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

Cycling in New York City[edit]

I've noticed the considerable clean up and edits, however it may be best to work on the changes you wish to make using Show preview or Show changes rather than making edits and saving the page each team for small additions. It would save your time and its easier for people to see your contributions to the page. Thanks--CorrectlyContentious 14:52, 30 December 2008 (UTC)

Caravan reply[edit]

I'm not sure what you meant in your previous message. Unless I'm missing something, the white 4th-gen Caravan image is in the infobox, not with any text about the Grand Caravan. I had only switched the Grand Caravan image out of the infobox because it's a bit blurrier. IFCAR (talk) 23:39, 30 December 2008 (UTC)

geobox[edit]

I'm not sure what you mean. If you mean you would like to exclude some of the information in the new box, simply leave the fields blank, and nothing will appear. If you mean that you would like to include features that aren't apparent in the new mountainbox template, you would use the "free" fields to include them. I just left some instructions on how to do so here: Wikipedia:WikiProject Mountains. Once you get the hang of the new form, it's quite easy to use, but there is a slight learnign curve to overcome. There's a price for change. . .even good change.--Pgagnon999 (talk) 13:59, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

If you mean, "is there a way to adapt the features of the new mountainbox into the old mountainbox", I don't know. If there is, it would require a rewrite of the template itself. I think that was the point of creating the new version in the first place. If there is something unappealing about the new version (the color?), then perhaps the new version should be changed, not the old version.--Pgagnon999 (talk) 14:05, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

NoMoreLinks text[edit]

Was the comment text in [1] copied from another article? The comment contains {{NoMoreLinks}} and that is a way to indicate it was made with {{subst:NoMoreLinks}} which substitutes {{NoMoreLinks}}, but that template currently has another text. It's a little confusing when the comment still indicates it was made with {{NoMoreLinks}}. I guess it was originally made like that on another article at a time where {{NoMoreLinks}} had another text. PrimeHunter (talk) 17:19, 10 January 2009 (UTC)

great observation[edit]

Who cares if the media calls it "Miracle on the Hudson"? I completely agree! Does Donald Trump's article mention "Best Sex I Ever Had", which was a newspaper headline? I hope not! Chergles (talk) 21:54, 17 January 2009 (UTC)

Escaped vs Rescued[edit]

While the passengers and aircrew of Flight 1549 escaped (evacuated) the Airbus 320 on their own ("active"), their subsequent rescue from the plane's wings and inflated slides was made by and with the assistance of others ("passive") who arrived in ferry boats and other watercraft after they had escaped from the cabin. These were two separate actions -- the first "active" and the second "passive" -- which both occurred. (Centpacrr (talk) 06:21, 20 January 2009 (UTC))

VW Routan[edit]

Finally got a chance to review a couple guidelines that suggest revising the lead section of the Routan article; my comments are here and I welcome your thoughts. Cheers, NMS Bill (talk) 22:38, 25 January 2009 (UTC)

Hi again, 842U. While I still believe I have some good points about what should happen with the article, I'm afraid I don't have time to continue the discussion now. However, I just wanted to be clear that my suggestions are based on what I think would make for the most accurate and guideline-appropriate article; I intend for all of my suggestions to comply with WP:COI and relevant policies. I'm not infallible, but I do try to edit fairly. And as my user page notes, when an edit becomes the subject of debate, I head for the Talk page until it is resolved. I'm sorry to have to step away while this one seems unresolved, so I hope I get a chance to pick up the conversation with you again at another point. Cheers, NMS Bill (talk) 19:55, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

Japan Airlines Flight 2[edit]

Hi there, not sure of the protocol here. (I don't login very often as you can tell.) Not sure what you mean by "doesn't seem to support the Captains' statement"? Did you mean "This book doesn't actually claim that the Captain said that"? Or did you mean Senge's report isn't of a form considered sufficiently definitive for Wikipedia? Here's Senge, p.301 (I have the book on my lap) -- whoops, looks like I gave the ISBN of the paperback edition? I'll put ISBN that matches what's here on my lap. OK, here's Senge, p.301:

Asoh's response, though never recorded in the official NTSB minutes, has gone down in airline folklore: "As you Americans say, Asoh !@#$%^&* up."

Whoops, I just noticed that in my July edit, I was modifying a statement attributed to "The Abilene Paradox" -- which perhaps I shouldn't have...? Comparing the edit I made vs the state of the page now, I see that someone has made Harvey's book the primary reference for the "Asoh Defence"... so I actually didn't attribute that to Harvey -- whew. --Collinpark (talk) 02:26, 29 March 2009 (UTC)

Cesar Millan[edit]

as per Spanish naming customs (which refer to all Spanish speaking countries) "Spanish naming customs denote the two-surname personal appellation practised in Hispanophone societies; the first surname is paternal, the second surname is maternal." It's not a big deal but Favela was his mother's maiden name so it would follow Millan in orthodox Spanish language naming tradition. Rms125a@hotmail.com (talk) 20:42, 14 September 2009 (UTC)

Normally not, especially for anyone born or raised in a non-Spanish language country (which includes the USA). But since he is from Mexico and his mother's maiden name was provided, one could write that he is the son of Felipe Millán and Maria Teresa Favela, or that he is the son of Felipe Millán and Maria Teresa Favela de Millán. Yours, Rms125a@hotmail.com (talk) 01:26, 15 September 2009 (UTC)

Hi 842U, thought you might be interested in an email I received from the AHA. They clearly haven't retracted their statement (notice 'his inhumane methods'), but reading between the lines I got the impression they don't want to piss him off either: I think they might see him as a great way to get their message to many more people. I can't delete the text from wikipedia as there's no valid source, and yet I know it's wrong. Go figure!

Thank you for contacting us regarding our position on Cesar Millan's training methods. Our position has not changed and we have not retracted our statement regarding his inhumane methods. In an effort to more thoroughly gain an understanding of our position, the principles at the Millan organization reached out to open a dialogue with us a fee weeks ago. So although we have not wavered in our position, we realize that there is great importance in the educational opportunities here. We are in the planning stages of a Symposium that will bring together many of the best professionals in the world of humane dog training and behavior and we know that Mr. Millan is interested in learning more about a different perspective.

As the plan for the Symposium becomes more defined, we will be happy to share more information. Since American Humane is also a humane educator, we see the potential for real value coming out of this summit. As noted in our online press release, American Humane is committed to collaborating with organizations on initiatives that strive to ensure that pet owners receive accurate information and messages about what constitutes effective training and appropriate treatment of all animals, including the companion animals that are so much a vital part of our modern families.

We are in the beginning stages. We look forward to sharing more details as they become developed.

DYK for Chicken tax[edit]

Updated DYK query On September 24, 2009, Did you know? was updated with a fact from the article Chicken tax, which you created or substantially expanded. You are welcome to check how many hits your article got while on the front page (here's how) and add it to DYKSTATS if it got over 5,000. If you know of another interesting fact from a recently created article, then please suggest it on the Did you know? talk page.

Done. --candlewicke 15:03, 25 September 2009 (UTC)

LHC[edit]

Hi, I reverted your change to the LHC article. I don't know what exactly you meant by "super-specific", but nature and energy of the collided particles are indeed the most important information for a particle collider, as they determine what kind of physics processes can be studied. They are certainly more relevant than depth, circumference and geographical location of the tunnel. But please feel free to discuss your point of view if you are not convinced. Cheers Ptrslv72 (talk) 12:36, 11 October 2009 (UTC)

Centurion (bicycle)[edit]

Nice job with the new article. Are you going to nominate it for DYK? -AndrewDressel (talk) 00:55, 26 November 2009 (UTC)

Shoot. My memory is bad. It has to be less than five days old. Sorry. Still a nice new article, though. Also, great story from Frank J. Berto. I had no idea. -AndrewDressel (talk) 14:27, 26 November 2009 (UTC)

Hi 842U,

Thanks for your feedback to my edits on the Smile Train page.

I appreciate your changes, but feel that your deletion of my American Institute of Philanthropy reference is unwarranted. As you said, it's always good to have pro's and con's in a controversy section to provide a balance and maintain NPOV. I feel as if your edits removed neutrality and so am reposting. There are many critics of the American Institute of Philanthropy, as cited by an established study. This is important as this publication is given much weight in this section, and isn't really even a "controversy." It is one organization's opinion, based on what could be faulty methodology. It shouldn't be posted in this section at all, which is why I deleted in initially. If you would like to leave it in, it is only fair to also point out that the American Institute of Philanthropy has its own faults. I don't see how linking to the Intelligent Giving article solves the problem as they are another watchdog group! My citation provides neutrality. For all of these reasons, do not delete the controversies section of the Smile Train article without discussion and consensus: to do so is vandalism of the article. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Smiller44 (talkcontribs) 00:21, 21 January 2010 (UTC)

Cloud computing[edit]

Thanks for not hammering me! It really does need work, so I just plunged in. Good luck on the citations - the couple I deleted just didn't seem to make any sense at all. As I see it, the main message is; "Nothing new about it, just a new term for channeling marketing & sales talks with younger purchasers who don't know client-server history". It's hard to tell someone to "get on the grid" when the basic physical layer is intangible. You used to be able to point to a cable and tell people they were connected to something. That is just no longer the case! I'll be interested to see if I have helped the discussion any. DSP-user (talk) 15:14, 4 February 2010 (UTC)

Donald Frey, Recent death[edit]

Wow, that's creepy. I was watching ABC news and they said, "and we have a death to report..." They never said his date of death, but the deaths are usually the day of reporting. Kevin Rutherford (talk) 23:28, 29 March 2010 (UTC)

Yes, I like to know where they come from, what their roots are that shape what they do later. Did you read (the reference that I added-."Innovation: What It Is All About". Engineering Management Journal ) that he wrote? It looks like you did. He seemed to write his own obit six months ago. I would like to find out what he did during WWII. I doubt it was much, probably worked with military vehicles, but it would be nice to know and put it in there. He mentions his maternal grandfather, who came direct from Scotland to be a railroad engineer, including during the Civil War, but I don't have his name.
His paternal grandfather does not seem to be around, either he died or abandoned them, and his father was raised mainly by his (Muir's) grand-parents Thomas V.[?J?] and Margaret "Maggie" (nee Muir) LUKEN (LUKON) on their farm in rural Dorchester Township, Macoupin County, Illinois. Is Maggie related to John Muir?
Do you have this reference:
  • Frey, Donald N. (March 1989). ""U.S. is losing 'global race': we think for the Japanese, then they beat our brains out"". Ward's Auto World.
I would like to read it, but the link that was there was broken (I personal don't like findarticles that much), so I just removed the link.
Thanks for working on this article too. > Best O Fortuna (talk) 20:01, 30 March 2010 (UTC)
PS: The article says that he taught while he was studying (which for a Ph.D is quite normal. In the article that he wrote he says he 'taught after his degree'. He might have done both, but it needs clarifying and to be cited. > B O F
His car: Is that a convertible? > B O F
I just can't tell from the photo, although you would assume so knowing the normal Mustang pattern. To paint a hard top that way would be quirky. So it was a white rag-top.
Do you have an account at the Chicago Tribune to get an obit for his mom? > B O F

Re: Rhodes Piano[edit]

I did a history merge on the article, then imported an old edit from the Nostalgia Wikipedia. It probably looks so strange on your watchlist because I had to history merge it with the Rhodes article; you might want to unwatch that page. Graham87 11:22, 31 March 2010 (UTC)

Phrygian cap[edit]

it turned out o be easier to find the citation than I had expected. I had written the author and page number in the section I'd added, a very early attempt on my part of do citations.

Kia Design and Manufacturing Facilities[edit]

Hi 842U, I tagged this article with an advertising tag because I'm concerned that its language is leaning towards unencyclopedic, and the article sounds very much like an official document that would be released by Kia. I'll make some changes to the article so you can see what I mean by improving the language. I'm additionally changing the article name, as it currently contributes to making it seem non-NPOV. Your work on this article is very good; let's take it to the next level. Rodface (talk) 16:51, 30 May 2010 (UTC)

Re: Karakoram Highway[edit]

Hi 842U, if you look at the image on the commons, you will see that I added an image note in the general region of the line. Also if you would like to know more, you can view the image on the source page for a more detailed description. I agree that it isn't clear, but it does say that its faint! As for highlighting roads etc on images, I am not aware of any way of doing this other than making a derivative of the file and highlighting the road yourself, using image software or something.

Corvair[edit]

The Criticisms section I basically created first of all..The Handling section is not meant to be a crash course in oversteer or handling. It is meant to explain the Corvair's initial cost cutting compromises (and why) which were all but deleted, There is nothing wrong with the Handling section. It is, as I said, also a general history of the car's suspension development. Your work was not changed. The section was just cut too much and I added some of my sentences back blending quite nicely with your (new) edit.Vegavairbob (talk) 18:12, 28 July 2010 (UTC)

Notchback image[edit]

Images have been changed every day for a week in Notchback. Your additions were the best and were not deleted by me. the 67 Mustang I reverted back to the article as it was deleted by another user. (even though you replaced my image that was perfectly acceptable - wiki polcy-image should remain if it's a high quality image that depicts subject. The Fiat diagram however, although useful, was drab, and un-focused. I AM collarborating with you and will protect your high quality work from deletion. Thanks for working with me as well. Vegavairbob (talk) 12:06, 8 August 2010 (UTC)

Impala generations[edit]

A User had added much detailed info to the fourth and fifth generations in the Impala article. I verified this new text as copied from one source. The Editors of Consumer Guide. This text was then split to a fifth generation article (by a different User?) leaving the Impala article section with little more than a paragraph, which I quickly corrected. As per your discussion, I then split the fourth generation that had also been vastly increased in size. I will contribute to adding other sourced text for these generation articles and will add references. In the meantime they have been flagged for insufficient citations. It takes time (more than two days) Also, a large part of the changes on any given model year within a generation of these cars are styling changes and any site or book highlights these in detail. There will also be production figures, detailed engine changes and other info added. As stated the text was added from one User and copied from one source so the articles need work which they will receive. The Chevrolet Impala First generation (1958) (and origin) has been revised with new referenced text as this section had received little attention previously. Vegavairbob (talk) 15:30, 11 August 2010 (UTC)

Are they "big statements"?[edit]

Thanks for "tightening" the text in the Ford Mustang (second generation). Before all the referenced contributions that I had made earlier today, the article was lacking cited material. Just as I have tried to do, it would help if you could also help provide referenced information. For example, it is not productive to criticize the article's text with your edit summary "how can the article begin to make big statements like this without ref's? "the first fully metric engine built in the U.S. for installation in an American car." This is because this information is well known. Please see here (American Horsepower: 100 Years of Great Car Engines By Mike Mueller. page 147). Moreover, making an edit summary comment as "What is all this expository: who are the sources and are they notable?" seems out of place when the objective of the text tries to explain the rapidly changing automobile market at that time. Perhaps it would be better to help to include additional referenced material to communicate the dramatic changes at that time, rather than questioning the purpose of the text. Once again, thank you for improving the article. CZmarlin (talk) 23:15, 11 August 2010 (UTC)

Re: User Regushee[edit]

La Sagrada Familia[edit]

Could I suggest to you that rather than simply deleting statements from articles about architecture and the like, you request a reference? In the case of this church, it is beyond any doubt the "masterpiece" of Gaudi's designs. And as you noted, there was a sentence linking its unusual design and vast size with its tourist venue status. You cited this as speculation and deleted two very important facts- that its size is vast and its design unprecedented. As a skilled editor, you really ought to be able to find a way to maintain those facts, while delinking them fom the fact that thousands of people go to look at it. The insertion of the word "and" would have ceased to imply that vast size and unusual appearance was the reason that people visit it, if that was your aim. The problem with what you did is that you left an introduction about a truly unique building without any tiny clue as to why it is in fact unique. Could you please be less heavy handed about the editting process?

Every editor who writes about things of outstanding beauty, wonder or greatness has to find a way of expressing those qualities, within the Wikipedia guidelines. The vast majority topics on wikipedia do not fall into these categories, but some few do. An editor can reasonably describe Claude Monet, Ernest Hemmingway and Joni Mitchell without using superlatives, but one cannot write about "The Divine Michelangelo", "The Bard" or "La Stupenda" without them, and to do so would be unrealistic. Likewise La Sagrada Familia is one of the greatest buildings of the Modern Era, and the first paragraph needs to indicate that, in some way.

Some points on who is a reliable source for quotation

  • With regards to Dr Rainer Zerbst, whose quote you deleted, he's one of the most highly regarded authorities on Gaudi, specifically. Being a German scholar and critic, he's not well known to English speaking people. Regardless of that, his authoritative book was reprinted in English four times, and then reissued as a commemorative edition.
  • The reference to the Time article is useful, but the journalistic quote sensual, spiritual, whimsical, exuberant could refer to a thousand Rococo buildings and only passingly to Gaudi's undoubted masterpiece. This quote does nothing to suggest an extraordinary building.
  • Goldberger's quote 'the most extraordinary personal interpretation of Gothic architecture since the Middle Ages does far more to express it, and is a good one to include. However, it does not appropriately sum up the building. The reason is that this suggests that it is a Neo Gothic building, which it is not.
  • The H. G. Wells quote, dating from 1938, from a man not renowned for his aesthetic taste, is not an indictaion of the design being "polarising". The argument as to whether it should be finished or not has been polarised, but the opion of art scholars over the last 50 or 60 years has been almost unanimous that this is one of the greatest works of modern architecture.
  • The reason for the argument over whether the church should be completed is not because its design is criticised. Exactly the opposite. It is out of reverence for Gaudi's original concept.

The point that I am making here is that the quote from Zerbst, the expert, is the one that gives the best possible concept of the unprecedented and extraordinary nature of this building. Sensual, spiritual, whimsical, exuberant does not tell the reader that it is awe-inspiring and unique. Amandajm (talk) 10:38, 13 November 2010 (UTC)

Spaced em dashes[edit]

I see you added a number of spaced em dashes to iPad. Please note that em dashes should not be spaced, per WP:EMDASH. --Mepolypse (talk) 15:21, 3 January 2011 (UTC)

Reading en dash verus em dash, which says in practice, there is little consensus, and it is a matter of personal or house taste – as well as reading the WP:MOS, which says spaced en dashes – such as here – can replace unspaced em dashes in all of the ways discussed above, – then to be more precise, it's ok to use en or em, but when using en dash use a space and when using em dash, don't. Thanks. 842U (talk) 20:23, 3 January 2011 (UTC) (Preceding comment moved from User talk:Mepolypse.)
Correct, but I don't feel my comment was imprecise. I only said that em dashes should be spaced. --Mepolypse (talk) 20:37, 3 January 2011 (UTC)
I didn't say your comment was imprecise. I said my explanation was more precise. By definition, a more complete and whole explanation of the rules would be more precise than only half the story. 842U (talk) 20:44, 3 January 2011 (UTC) (Preceding comment moved from User talk:Mepolypse.)
I purposely did not mention the fact that unspaced em dashes and spaced en dashes are replacable, specifically because I felt that would dilute the issue (since you hadn't used en dashes on that article). I guess our definitions of precision differ. Anyway, I'm glad we can agree that em dashes should be spaced on Wikipedia, and hope we can both get back to editing articles now. --Mepolypse (talk) 20:57, 3 January 2011 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Rebecca Cardon[edit]

I removed both the BLP prod and regular prod tags you placed on Rebecca Cardon. This article was created before 18 March 2010, making it ineligible for BLP prod; it was also discussed at AfD on 28 September 2006, making it ineligible for regular prod. Compliance with policy/procedure is the only reason I did this, and I have no prejudice against opening another AfD. —KuyaBriBriTalk 15:04, 5 January 2011 (UTC)

Personal attacks[edit]

It does look as if he's returning to the old Vegavairbob ways. Yet again WP:OWN springs to mind. The increasingly apoplectic and adversarial tone of his screeds is troubling.

My apologies to all for being a further irritant. I guess you refer to the photo that may be found by following the link through DB5 and then hunting. Not in the article is it. My link was to a good clear photo of an example in which the shooting brake part is plain and provided immediate access to some more.

I've tried to discuss this with you on the article's talk page, without success. I have no connection with this group. It is (supposedly) "notable", by Wikipedia standards.

DYK hook length[edit]

A DYK hook should read as under 200 characters of prose. It is not clear to me whether the leading ellipses and trailing question mark count in this number (I believe not on the former and possibly on the latter). It is also not clear whether "(pictured)" counts when applicable. There may be an explicit explanation on the DYK rules or supplementary rules pages (WP:DYK and WP:DYKSG).

I believe the fuss at Template:Did you know nominations/Guiding Eyes for the Blind is not about hook length, but rather about article length. If the article is new it must be at least 1500 characters of readable prose. This excludes tables, captions, infoboxes, templates, bulletpointed text and section headings. It counts the spaces between words in the prose. If the article is an expansion, the new article must be 5 times as long as the original in terms of readable prose unless it is an expansion of a WP:BLP that was previously unreferenced in which case, refs must be added and it must be 2 times as long. This is all laid out at WP:DYK and WP:DYKSG as well.

Hope that helps,--TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 14:58, 6 November 2011 (UTC)

Go to the DYK discussion page and ask how to insert the code in your monobook or profile to have a readable prose counter in your left hand side toolbox menu. Until you can figure it out how to insert that code, cut and paste into Microsoft word.--TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 15:14, 6 November 2011 (UTC)

Hi: What I do is use the word count that is under Tools in MS Word. (I'm sure it's similar in other word processing programs; they seem to be very similar these days.) I copy and paste the text of the article, except for any bulleted lists and any indented quotations, the section headings, and the references and stuff at the end, into a new Word document. I usually go section by section so it doesn't pick up picture captions since those don't count, either. Then I delete the footnote numbers and the brackets around them, and write down the character count including spaces on a piece of paper. I do this for the version before expansion started and for the latest version - or occasionally for the version when it was nominated, if further expansion has happened after the 5/6-day limit. The discussion about the Manitoba Hydro building shows that people are not currently allowing bulleted paragraphs (list items that contain a sentence or more) to count either; if an article has a section like that I'd do a third count and suggest making those into a non-bulleted series of paragraphs, possibly with boldface headings at the start of each item, and the bullets can always be restored after it runs on DYK. (As was suggested to you with the Manitoba Hydro building.) That rule appears to have become stricter; I believe the rules used to say that list items that are actually prose count, too. I don't use one of the count scripts; I understand they occasionally fail, and plus adding scripts to my monobook sounds hard and even potentially dangerous to me. If you are less of a technophobe, then that's obviously what most people do and saves the writing down on a piece of paper and getting the calculator as well as the manual erasure in Word. Hope that, plus the above, helps make it clearer. Yngvadottir (talk) 16:17, 6 November 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Ole Singstad.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under non-free content criteria, but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia is acceptable. Please go to the file description page, and edit it to include a non-free rationale.

Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.

Hey, thanx for the ‘I Am’ and ‘Art Of Racing In The Rain’ pages, it’s good to see them there.

I also see from his 'talk' page with the Honda Super Cub you've had the same probs with the user Dennis Bratland (talk) that other people have had with him only thinking that own his edits are any good and no-one else's are - talk about ownership issues.

and i notice he's doing it again here – BMW R1100GS (BMW R1100GS) - so maybe for the good of Wikipedia we should contribute to this noticeboard discussion. It seems to me he's in the wrong yet again! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 62.254.173.13 (talk) 10:31, 4 April 2012 (UTC)

Apologies[edit]

I recently notified the relevant editors of related discussions of this ANI - Bad Faith and Mr Bratland - but I mistakenly did not notify you, so apologies for that. Unfortunately it's now been closed - rather too swiftly, I thought. Although I have been (falsely) accused of 'canvassing' (although other editors didn't agree), so even this innocent note to you may result in some ludicrous accusation. Anyway, stay free.

Subarus (tiresome)[edit]

Hello 842U, I wasn't aware that I had offended you so much in the past - apologies. I really often feel that many articles were better off combined, and most certainly hope that reasoned thinking (rather than number of editors who will have one's back) should win in an argument. In any case, I asked slakr to set up a single place to discuss the Legacy/Outback/Baja etcetera. The reason I reverted MarcusHookPa was because there was existing consensus to merge, and I don't like seeing a single energetic reverter having his way above the opinions of many others. While I fall on the side of split-and-merge, I don't actually feel all that strongly about the Outback location (and I think the Baja should stand, because of the structural differences and minimal shared article content).

Replaceable fair use File:A composite of five brands of speculoos spread.png[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:A composite of five brands of speculoos spread.png. I noticed the description page specifies that this media item is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails the first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media item could be found or created that provides substantially the same information or which could be adequately covered with text alone. If you believe this media item is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the file description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the file discussion page, write the reason why this media item is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media item by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by creating new media yourself (for example, by taking your own photograph of the subject).

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per the non-free content policy.

Proposed deletion of Sego (diet drink)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Sego (diet drink) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

unremarkable product, lacks significant coverage, where the product is the primary focus of the article, not just mentioned in passing.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Proposed deletion of Sego (diet drink)[edit]

As the nominee seems to have forgot to notify you, I am just letting you know that a proposed deletion was placed upon an article you created Sego (diet drink). I have contested and removed the prod. Periglio (talk) 18:50, 19 June 2013 (UTC)

Problem edits[edit]

OK, I'll take a look Jimfbleak - talk to me? 15:25, 13 July 2013 (UTC)

Patent holder[edit]

If you choose to be ignorant of how design patents and registrations work, that isn't my problem and I will continue to contribute information regarding exterior designers of vehicles based on that. If you want to be emptily threatening other editors, you go ahead and do that then. It will not deter me, as I am correct in my research and you are merely being purposely obtuse about the subject matter concerning those credited for automotive exterior designs. Not everything specifically requires a scholarly or journalistic source, as the latter can easily be flawed by mistakes or misinformation. Wikipedia guidelines have sensible applications in simpler cases, but cannot always apply the same way in every section. I have been here 7 years, so I have expectations.

Also, if you bothered to comprehend what you refute, you'd obviously take note of how patent holder's are the CORPORATIONS, NOT the individual designers. The designers are the INVENTORS of product's exterior design, thus listed as such on design patents across the board. That is why Boyke Boyer is listed as the INVENTOR on a BMW E38 7-Series design patent dated April 27, 1993 and NOT Bayerische Motoren Werke. BMW holds the patent, but has designer Herr Boyer credited as INVENTOR for his DESIGN WORK on the E38 exterior.

I do not have the energy for tolerating your insulting antics and have better things to do with my time, than argue with you over the composition of external sources that you cannot comprehend and stubbornly refuse to. You are stepping into a field of knowledge you lack experience in deciphering and understanding, as it's obvious from your fallacious assumption that "patent holders" are exactly the same as "inventors". Abusing guidelines to serve your personal viewpoint will only suffice for the time being. You cannot expect me to swallow or respect such a singular choice by you, when it's been poorly reviewed and has underlying implications behind it. I'm done here and certainly not finished with my work.---Carmaker1 (talk) 23:17, 19 July 2013 (UTC)

I've warned Carmaker1 again about his behaviour. If it persists, a block may become necessary. I would suggest that rather than getting drawn into a dispute, you let me know if
There are future uncivil postings on your (on any other editor's) talk page
Contentious edits to articles where it has not been possible to reach agreement on content or referencing. In the case of references, if I think the referencing is inadequate or too opaque, I'll make a judgement myself on whether to revert the edit.

Morris Levy[edit]

Do you have a source for the edit where you added Cynthia Brooks as a wife of Morris Levy? Or that he divorced her in 1961? 842U (talk) 12:21, 14 August 2013 (UTC)

There are a couple of citations in the article and there are dozens digitally searchable references to Cynthia Brooks (born approximately 1933) marrying and divorcing Morris Levy. But the sources are syndicated columnists, not primary documents, such as marriage license or divorce court indices. One article pre-announced their impending marriage to take place on 15 September 1957 aboard Morris' yacht, off of Long Island;1 another article stated that Brooks divorced William Dougherty (club owner of Chicago) to marry Levy;4 another article announced the filing for divorce in April 1959; yet another announced them dating again in 1960.2 There's also a 1957 article saying that Levy denied the rumor of his impending marriage to Brooks.3
Before marrying Levy, Brooks had married and divorced Rudi Maugeri (né Rudolph V Maugeri; born 1931) (vocalist with The Crew-Cuts). They had met in Vegas and married in Chicago. Brooks worked as a chorus girl at the El Rancho Vegas. She also was under contract at 20th Century Fox, appearing in Follow the Sun (1951) and Westward Ho, The Women (1952).
Published gossip columns state that Brooks, in 1958 and 1959, dated Joe E. Lewis and Lance Reventlow.
Brooks appeared in several pinup mags, including Show (January 1956) and Bold (August 1956; back cover); and a few mainstream mags, particularly Life (Every Man's Miss Brooks, March 1957, pg. 51 — photographer: Peter Stackpole).
I have not done much work on Levy. Give me some time to do some digging. — Eurodog (talk) 23:21, 14 August 2013 (UTC)

Demonym[edit]

That's fine, the article already said "A demonym /ˈdɛmənɪm/, or gentilic, is a debated term for the residents of a locality," which is unclear whether "debated" refers to "demonym" being debated by linguists or refers to the "term for the residents" being debated among those residents. I have no evidence of a debate, I was merely clarifying the language. Why didn't you remove the phrase "debated" before my clarification? 173.227.19.69 (talk) 20:20, 1 May 2014 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use File:Jean Jennings.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Jean Jennings.jpg. I noticed that this file is being used under a claim of fair use. However, I think that the way it is being used fails the first non-free content criterion. This criterion states that files used under claims of fair use may have no free equivalent; in other words, if the file could be adequately covered by a freely-licensed file or by text alone, then it may not be used on Wikipedia. If you believe this file is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the file description page and add the text {{di-replaceable fair use disputed|<your reason>}} below the original replaceable fair use template, replacing <your reason> with a short explanation of why the file is not replaceable.
  2. On the file discussion page, write a full explanation of why you believe the file is not replaceable.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media item by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by creating new media yourself (for example, by taking your own photograph of the subject).

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per the non-free content policy.

Qxukhgiels (talk) 21:46, 10 November 2014 (UTC) Hello. I've reverted your warning on my talk page because it appears to be irrelevant. I have reverted you because I don't see how the article reads like an advertisement. As I've already discussed, I do not WP:OWN this article, I just happen to be the only major contributor. Also, if 65.240.194.232 was used by you to make this edit, please stop, this could be considered sockpuppetry.Qxukhgiels (talk) 22:02, 10 November 2014 (UTC)

Please stop posting these notices on my TP, as I've already stated, I do not WP:OWN this article, I just happen to be the only contributor. And the advert tag is probably unnecessary because the article complies with WP:YESPOV. Example- see Apple Inc.- this article is written from a similar tone like Jetboil, describing its products. Giving information about the products is not advertising; giving excessive information, such as reviews, is. I've tried to remove borderline information so far.Qxukhgiels (talk) 22:15, 10 November 2014 (UTC)
Apple is a highly notable company. Jetboil isn't. The significance of each Jetboil model and each accessory is even less significant. 842U (talk) 22:17, 10 November 2014 (UTC)
Actually, the modells are what makes the company notable. The article has verifiable sources to support this. Now please stop disrupting the lead section. Recent edits as [3] damage the context.

November 2014[edit]

Stop icon

Your recent editing history at Jetboil shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. To resolve the content dispute, please do not revert or change the edits of others when you get reverted. Instead of reverting, please use the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. The best practice at this stage is to discuss, not edit-war. See BRD for how this is done. If discussions reach an impasse, you can then post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly. Qxukhgiels (talk) 22:17, 10 November 2014 (UTC)

I understand your warning. Just note that you are the one and only editor "protecting" the static condition of an article that you alone have created -- and as of right now, you've reverted the article three times to a static place. Wikipedia is intended to be collaborative. Do you think there is room to have another editor participate in the article -- if so, what are you proposing?842U (talk)
