Hyper-Calvinism[edit]

I deleted the external link you added to Hyper-Calvinism because that page is not only not hyper-Calvinist, but is in fact anti-Calvinist. --Flex 12:54, 3 July 2006 (UTC)

Films/mythology sub-cat[edit]

Greetings Dudeman! Since you obviously have worked hard on this article, you may want to know that there's a new sub-cat under Category:Films by source, which is Category:Films based on Greco-Roman mythology. Cheers, Her Pegship 18:26, 6 July 2006 (UTC)

Film serials[edit]

Hey Dude! Actually, I tend to lurk about the film/book categories and tidy them up periodically, and I saw the article under Category:Film. The Filmms WikiProject is quite lively here and you can find some useful stuff in these spots:

Also, I know that Lady Aleena has been active in compiling lists of contemporary film series, so you might pick her brain about what resources she likes. Go to it, and I'll keep lurking...Cheers! Her Pegship 03:56, 10 July 2006 (UTC)

Hello Dudeman...so, let's get to work here.
  1. The list should be in chronological order earliest to latest, so it needs to be flipped. Not an easy task I know.
  2. As you are grouping the serials by production company, there needs to be headings under each of the years for them. Also, they should not be in all caps. I could fix the all caps quickly, if you wish.
  3. More information may be needed, such as how many films were in each serial.
  4. Once we get this tidied, getting it noticed will be next. Let's tidy it up first. Sound good?
LA @ 03:45, 27 July 2006 (UTC)
Dudeman...I am working on it here. It is slow going, but I got the years flipped, now I am trying to alphabetalize the serials within each year. After giving each production company their own headings, it became unweildy, so I came up with what is in years 1912-1916. Let me know what you think. - LA @ 05:43, 29 July 2006 (UTC)

List of films made in the Third Reich[edit]

Some movies on List of films made in the Third Reich have links that point to subjects of the film, not an article on it (examples: Amphitryon, Mazurka, etc.). Would it not be better to reference any interesting tidbits in the Notes column. As it stands it would seem that the links take you to an article on the movie. --Swift 08:49, 25 August 2006 (UTC)

[The following comment moved here from User:Swift]
I was actually trying to do that to Kurt Gerrons "Theresenstadt" - It links to the Concentration Camp article, but I was trying to get it to link specifically to the part about the Camps use as a propaganda tool. (A really disturbing story BTW) Also - I know there is a rule against posting commecial links in the External Links sections, except when there is special content? I was thinking of adding links to Internatinal Historic videos because they do have useful info on my subjects.--Dudeman5685 16:39, 25 August 2006 (UTC)
I sort of figured you were (history shows you linking ot the section. What I was suggesting that such links to topic were done in the "Notes" column of the tables.
I've seen commercial links in "External links" sections. If you do so tactfully, no-one might object. Be bold. If you use the video as a reference, you can cite it. Useful pages: Category:Citation templates and Wikipedia:Footnotes for useful material.
Final note: if you check your contributions, there are many edits spaced very closely in time. This clogs up the history pages[1][2] and makes changes hard to follow. You may like to use the Show preview button, on the right of the Save page button to check intermediate edits. --Swift 19:31, 25 August 2006 (UTC)

Sorry, but I only now noticed the comment you left on my userpage on the 26th. Comments and questions are better left on the talk page as users get notified of those. Also, it would really help with page histories if you were to use the "Show preview" button rather than save after every little edit. --Swift 03:54, 29 August 2006 (UTC)

Show preview[edit]

As I've mentioned to you a couple of times, it would greatly help if you were to use the "Show preview" button when doing multiple edits. You should also consider entering edit summaries in the field beside the "Save" and "Show preview" buttons. If you have any questions how or why to use these features, I'd be more than willing to help. --Swift 00:19, 31 August 2006 (UTC)

Political parties in Europe[edit]

Hi. Wouldn't you say that creating a Category:Political parties by country in Europe instead of just "in Europe", and functioning as a subcategory of Category:Political parties by country, would have been a better solution? Dahn 20:42, 28 September 2006 (UTC) I had always meant this to be a sub-cat of Political Parties by Country. If you think it should be Category:Political parties by country in Europe then fill free to rename it, only wait till I'm through filling it out a bit.--Dudeman5685 20:43, 28 September 2006 (UTC)

Category:Nazi Party Organisations[edit]

Hi Dudeman5685. I see you created this category. I noticed that German Labour Front is now in both

This seems a bit redundant to me. Is there an appreciable difference between these two categories? --Bookandcoffee 17:49, 12 October 2006 (UTC)

Estonian anti-German resistance movement 1941-1944[edit]

Hi, Dudeman5685. You made last edit in article Estonian anti-German resistance movement 1941-1944, and thats why I ask you. In this article link Erik Paulson is wrong: it is about modern trainer, not about WW2 resistance figure. Could you change it (disambig)? I can't, my english is very poor. Thanks --217.150.40.230 12:35, 3 January 2007 (UTC)

NFB wartime films[edit]

Hi. I didn't realize that CineRoute was just for Canadians -- I know that access is limited to "NFB Film Club" members, or actually a small subsection thereof. But I can tell you that the available films are not for download, just streaming. My colleagues were very clear on this. Unfortunately, I've never worked with any of the NFB WWII propaganda titles -- even the Oscar-winner Churchill's Island. I've never actually seen it, though of course I've heard about. So I don't have access to any DVD that I could copy a file from and email. In fact, I've never heard of these films being telecast in their entirety Canada during my 17 years at the Board. I'm afraid the clips that are online at the NFB site is the best I can do. Sorry. Shawn in Montreal 19:33, 7 January 2007 (UTC)

"The Campaign in Poland"[edit]

You are more than welcome. And if, in return, you discover any other Nazi propaganda videos on the Net (ideally with English narration or titles) do me a favor and let me know. Vidor 22:53, 16 December 2006 (UTC)

List of Holocaust films[edit]

The "a" isn't necessary; it just makes it easier to edit. Article pages should be designed for the readers, not the editors. Most people, myself included, would be confused by the a in the section headers. They should be removed. --dm (talk) 19:52, 20 January 2007 (UTC)

I object to the small note. Section headers should be clear and self-explanatory. The article should be written so that they're easy for readers to use and understand, not for your own convenience. It's not that difficult to edit the whole page instead of a single section. --dm (talk) 20:55, 20 January 2007 (UTC)
The 'a' is not minuscule. It's 1/6th of the header. Where would the note be? Because there are 7 subsections and a table of contents where the a's appear. I'm afraid you'd be making a typographically ugly page even uglier. --dm (talk) 21:03, 20 January 2007 (UTC)
I don't see how ==1950s(doc)== would be an improvement. There's nothing conventional about that. --dm (talk) 21:10, 20 January 2007 (UTC)

Article for Deletion Revolutionary Anarchist Bowling League[edit]

You have contributed as an editor to the article above. It is being considered for deletion. You can comment on this here.

Also it would be helpful if someone could provide a cite to the Minneapolis Star Tribune or other major media cite for the 1988 "bowling ball" incident discussed in the article.Edivorce 03:58, 27 January 2007 (UTC)

thanks for adding to the list of bulgarian films feel free to add the rest and add in the bulgarian titles too. Thanks dude!! Ernst Stavro Blofeld 19:24, 12 February 2007 (UTC)

No I want to keep Polish films on one list e.g List of Polish films -as the list growns it can be paged off into the ones you suggested smaller time periods -its easier to keep track of everything that way Ernst Stavro Blofeld 19:47, 12 February 2007 (UTC)

List of World War II films[edit]

Can you please explain your edits to this article on January 20? After I had removed all the calls to the flagIOC template (which results in links to articles like Italy at the 1936 Summer Olympics, you put them back in! What was the point of that? Please use the flagcountry template, which is far more appropriate for this article. Andrwsc 18:48, 13 February 2007 (UTC)

I've already fixed it. The {{flagicon}} and {{flagcountry}} templates are designed for normal use. {{flagIOC}} is specific for Olympic articles, because of the wikilinks it produces. In this case, there was always an "Italy old" flag to get what you wanted. Andrwsc 01:33, 14 February 2007 (UTC)

HI. I see you have done a terrific job on the list of Pre 1945 German films. It would be an enormous help if you could fill in the List of West German films and List of East German films 1945-1989. THanks. Keep up the great wikiing I'm impressed

Here is the link for West German films

♦ Sir Blofeld ♦ "I've been expecting you" 17:09, 20 March 2007 (UTC)

Please could you continue from 1961 on List of East German films -it looks a little odd that it couts off abruptly!! I am been adding a few West german films ♦ Sir Blofeld ♦ "Expecting you" "SPECTRE" 12:22, 28 March 2007 (UTC)

Hi and thank you for your help in the country lists. There is a discussion curently in Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Films/List and navigation management to try to define what entries are needed in the lists and which we could try to filter out. This problem has some history and it's worth a collective decision. Some lists are very concise (maybe too concise -see List of Greek films) and others start becoming very long. The main point however is that they should be useful and usable, so any opinions are very welcome at this point. Hoverfish Talk 08:42, 31 March 2007 (UTC)

Yes I know you are one busy bunny but if you could complete the DDR 1960-1989 this would be terrific. Leave out TV films though. I am curentlY completing Argentina, will do West germany if Hoverfish doesn't get there first soon. Saludos! ♦ Sir Blofeld ♦ "Expecting you" "S.P.E.C.T.R.E" 16:14, 31 March 2007 (UTC)

I think each one of us should be absolutely free to decide what he/she wants to edit, which IMO is the most terrific point about contributing to Wikipedia. I am just trying to make sure everyone agrees in some general lines, but we'll get there too. So enjoy your editis and we'll have a full series of great films-by-country lists soon. Hoverfish Talk 06:12, 1 April 2007 (UTC)

One more request for your opinion: should we somehow contain the 1945-1949 period in a section of its own? It obviously doesn't belong to East or West, but it's too little to get a page of its own. On the other hand it would be redundant to add it to both of the East and West articles (but maybe more correct). Also I did some fixes in all the lead sections of the all German lists to be more in conformity with each other. If you see any mistake, please feel free to correct it, or to let me know.

Theozoology link[edit]

Hello. You've added external links for the Lanz von Liebenfels book in a couple of articles, are you sure the subtitle is correctly translated? "Lore of the Sodom-Apelings and the Electron of the Gods" is how it's rendered in Goodrick-Clarke and a fair number of other places. My German is elementary, but it looks more accurate to me. The name Sodom has wider connotations than "sodomite"; and "Divine" is probably too vague (it could imply a monotheistic concept, but Götter means "gods'", as in Götterdämmerung). Just want to get it right; hope I'm not being pedantic. Gnostrat 22:30, 14 May 2007 (UTC)

Fahrenheit 9/11 as a propoganda film[edit]

Just stumbled on your exchanges in the Talk:Fahrenheit 9/11 page. You are absolutely right that it should be in the propoganda film category, and I am amazed that this is even debateable. I guess that some people are so conditioned to think that propoganda=bad, that they refuse to admit this is an obvious propoganda film. Keep up the fight.Plazak 18:49, 23 May 2007 (UTC)

Canuck WWII films[edit]

You're most welcome. I wanted to let you know that there is a major new NFB site underway that will feature lots more content. I'll let you know when it's live and we can figure out how best to link to it. A colleague of mine is working on it right now, should be live in early 2008, if all goes well. Regards, Shawn in Montreal (talk) 20:06, 14 December 2007 (UTC)

Hello[edit]

Hello Dudeman5685. Thank you for kind words and all :)

So, regarding the imperialism of the Soviet Union, what can I say. We were wrong (about the Communism), and we made half of the world to follow our false beliefs. But there's a problem how to comprehend that. Soviet Union and the modern Russia are completely different entities: SU was an ideologized empire, Russia is a usual selfish shit. Say this not to disclaim responsibility -- but you really can't understand policies of the SU from today positions. That was simply irrational and silly. We wasted our own resources to supply the allies, while since 60s Soviet Union wasn't able to produce enough grain to feed its own population. Well, that imperialism could mean something for the SU -- like, to spread Communism, to counter American imperialism :), but that's empty speech now (since 1990).

Definitely, I don't see anything to be proud about that. The only thing I actually feel sorry for are the wasted lives. No lives should be wasted for mere ideas.

Perhaps I didn't make my answer clear -- but I don't really remember Soviet Union (I'm 21) and I didn't discuss that a lot.

There's also a point that if you reflect on the history of the Soviet Union, it has much more tragic pages to worry about than the soviet imperialism.

Perhaps there's also some broader question -- is messing with other countries' affairs ever justified? I believe there's no universal answer, but the one which seems to be natural here is a definite no. Just because other countries have their own brains to live on. Just because we were wrong once, and how can you ever be sure you bring good, how can you be sure you'll be thanked after that not disdained? Better to say, how can you accept responsibility for others?

Of course, this position if you look from the other side is simple egotism. And imho while there's a hope for an individual person to remain good and all, that's different for countries. Russia a selfish shit is a true position. That's a little bit depressing, but first of all you have to settle all your problems, and then you'll have no time to worry about others.

Perhaps you have different views about american imperialism, because of, yes, South Korea, Japan, Germany. That worked, and that may encourage you for further deeds.

Cheers!

ellol (talk) 19:20, 3 January 2008 (UTC)

--

Perhaps I haven't again made it clear. You had a cold war question, while I better focus on the today agenda. Indeed, as Russia and the US are no more enemies, there are global problems to face. The third world, which due to the poverty will be a major source of instability in the following say 200 years. Nuclear armaments, which are yet "ready" as in the worst cold war years. Indeed, if say some Aliens would like to inflame the nuclear war, all they need is to explode a bomb over Moscow and one over Washington, all the rest we will do ourself on the timescale of minutes.

We really are no more enemies, although there are some quite untidy moments. (Like, I live just several kilometers from the Second Ring of the Moscow ABM system -- and I would be glad if it never had to be set in action.) And how to live on is a big question. Something called real politics. ellol (talk) 20:15, 3 January 2008 (UTC)

---

Well, theoretically American imperialism was about spreading freedom and democracy and countering the Communism. Today in Russia we have people who justify it all, like claim it's of no importance what's happened with Hiroshima and Nagasaki -- but it's great what's the Japan has today come to (said Valeria Novodvorskaya).

Lol. There was recently an article of a girl who's visited Afghanistan a year ago. [3] Lemme translate a bit... I got the answer to the question -- why we, the former enemies, are yet loved in Afghanistan? -- from a usual person named Ahmad in a guest house in a little city Puli-Humri. A man of the waning generation, yet somewhat speaking Russian but already better or worse speaking English explained it easily: "You fought with courage, you killed us, and then sat with us at one table and drank vodka. You never disdained us. When I come to an American here in Afghanistan, first of all he points an automated gun on me. He both fears and contempts me. He would never drink with me nor share bread with me. Because for him I'm an inferior being. And Russian was a brother. Even when he killed."

If you want to explore your knowledge about Russia -- I can only encourage you. That wouldn't be any shocking knowledge -- I mean, your ideas won't be shattered as Russian society today has accepted ideas of market economy and democracy -- but you will enrich youself, that's all...

Btw, if you really want to show your esteem -- may I know your real name? :) That's of no real importance, of course, but better to speak with somebody, not a complete anonymous :) ellol (talk) 01:27, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

-- Hello again.

I'm sorry -- now that is overuse of your hospitality.

But if your global question was of the existence of the Alternative -- there are a couple of my words.

On the scale of societies, there indeed is no alternative to capitalism and market economy. Socialism just doesn't work in XXI conditions. If you track the economic history of SU you'll see that yourself -- signs of the coming decay can be seen since 1960s. Although that's only my view. 11% of Russians think differently -- I mean those who'd recently vote for the Communist Party of the Russian Federation.

But what encourages in that although no alternative for societies can be seen, there's yet a vast field of alternatives for an individual person. And now the number of alternatives is in fact even higher than in the Soviet Union -- that's my answer for the same question. If that was not your question -- sorry. Anyway, now I'll no more disturb you :). ellol (talk) 17:23, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

re: cold war question[edit]

Hello, Dudeman5685. Thank you. I better address you by nick, yes?

No, you are mistaken, I'm a male. Ellol is just a convenient nick, my name is Evgeny V. Filatov, in fact it's on my user page. Russian girls are indeer very beautiful, but i'm a Russian guy :)

I understand your question. Right now unfortunately I have no time to investigate for certain politician's speeches and so. Will try to do that after a while. Rudely speaking, spectrum of Russian political thought is placed between two poles -- liberals and patriots. Liberals (Valeria Novodvorskaya, Yevgeniya Albats, Shenderovich, etc.) indeed believe Soviet Union did everything wrong. They resist attempts of streightening Russian statehood, mostly they are in opposition to the current regime, and they totally ignore views of ordinary citizens. Like, if the nation supports the regime they see as antidemocratic, this merely speaks about lameness of the nation. This partially explains their little support among the people. Of course it's also that they have less access to the most influential mass media, than in 90s. But on the other hand, there's no way the regime can cut out speech freedom without evoking another civil war. So there's a way of a dynamic equilibrium.

Patriots (I don't even know -- Oleg Kashin perhaps?, Valery Tretyakov, others) see the Soviet Union as a part of our history.

Perhaps liberals feel guilt for Soviet imperialism -- if those guys can ever feel guilt. At least they think Russian people should feel guilt. I guess patriots only feel it was a waste of resources.

Perhaps you would be interested in some excerpts from Barsenkov & Vdovin "History of Russia. 1917-2004.", the textbook accepted at the Historical faculty of the Moscow State University. Pieces from it regarding foreign policy of Soviet Union in respect of Third World Countries:

"Thaw", 1953-1964
page 502: Soviet Union paid much attention towards development of relationships with "third world" countries -- India, Indonesia, Birma, Afghanistan etc. They were aided with building of large national-economy objects (metallurgical complex in India, Aswan Dam in Egypt, etc). In 1953-1964 over 6,000 enterprises were built in various countries with financial and technician aid of USSR.
Early "Developed Socialism", 1964-1977
page 517: Relationships with "third world" countries in the period of early 'developed socialism' in Soviet Union were determined by its yearning to gain new allies and set up mutually beneficial cooperation with them. Soviet Union performed at the side of Egypt and Syria in Seven-Day War (!) with Israel in June 1967, it favoured calming the other military outburst in the Middle East in Autumn 1973, it supported India in its conflicts with Pakistan in the middle of 60-s and in 1971. The priority in relationships with developing countries was given to countries of 'socialistic direction' (Cambodia, Laos, Somali, Angola, Mozambique, Nicaragua). They received economical and military aid, sometimes amounting to milliards dollars. Military blocks logics of USSR lead in foreign policy to establishing allied ties also with dictatorship regimes (Iraq, Syria, Lybia, Ethiopia). Equally the same politics was carried by USA, which supported utterly reactional regimes of anticommunist and antisoviet orientation.
Later "Developed Socialism", 1977-1985
page 538: [on discussing arms race unbearable for Soviet economics] The aid for developing countries was becoming other 'source of bankruptcy' of USSR . In the end of 70s USSR was bound with diplomatic ties with over 130s states, more then a half of them the developing ones. Striving to expand its influence Soviet Union sent for a work in those countries its military and civilian experts, provided enormous priveleged long-term credits, carried shipments of cheap armaments and raw material. If in 1955-1968 shipments of armaments to 'brother regimes' constituted a sum of 4.5 milliard dollars, and 9,2 mlrd dollars in 1966-1975, it was already 35.4 mlrd dollars in 1978-1982. USSR spent a lot for educating numerous foreign students and postgraduates. However effectiency of the help turned out to be inessential, credits in most cases were not returned.

Doesn't lack of patriotism, right?

In fact as you can see, relationships with third-world countries are not a much popular theme.

Unfortunately for now I can't provide a more comprehensive answer, just due to the lack of time. If you are interested, I'll try to return to the topic after about a week when I get more free.

-- The situation with so-called liberals is in fact easy. If in the U.S. combination of liberal democratic ideas and American patriotism leads to overwhelming victory, in Russia the combination of liberal democratic ideas and American patriotism leads to a political failure.

I don't explain position of Russian patriots -- I guess patriotism is nearly the same in every country. Perhaps of Russian patriots you can see Mikhail Leontyev and Gleb Pavlovsky -- they are bright figures.

However liberals and patriots only define utter points of a political battlefield, although I would say today its patriots who rule the game.

Well, the topic of Soviet imperialism of course extends far more than third-world countries -- mostly meaning countries of 'socialistic block'. But it may need books to describe it adequately... also given that it's also often a painful question for the parties involved. ellol (talk) 22:54, 9 January 2008 (UTC)

Nice on the Socialist World...

If you're affiliated with Archive.org, I've got probably 1000 (or more, I've totally lost count) pdf documents up on my site ( http://www.marxisthistory.org ). Not all of them are 100% indisputably copyright clear according to the most conservative interpretation of copyright law, amen, but the overwhelming majority are clear beyond a shadow of a doubt under any interpretation... I ran a search and notice that something like 90 documents have already migrated to Archive.org, which is great. I'd like to strongly encourage you to harvest away at them, if that appeals to you. Many of them have made their way to Marxists Internet Archive already, but nothing is forever in cyberspace and having them up in parallel at Archive.org would be a very good thing, methinks. MIA is a small group and I'm just me, so having things up several times in several places is all for the good... Virtually all are machine readable PDFs. Carrite (talk) 18:10, 26 February 2010 (UTC)

Left Wing National Conference[edit]

I don't recall having ever seen a complete list of attendees to the June 1919 Left Wing National Conference.

There are links on my website to: 1. Conference call; 2. Revised Left Wing Manifesto passed by the conference; 3. Minutes of gathering; 4. Fraina account of conference; 5. Stenographic extract of speeches. You are, of course, welcome to upload any of these things to Archive.org if you haven't already and to link up. If you would rather I do that, say the word. Page of my site with the links is: http://www.marxisthistory.org/subject/usa/eam/socialistparty.html

It just occurred to me that maybe the Russian Federation's Novyi Mir has coverage of the conference — the film runs through July 1919. I'll spin it and check it out if you want me to. I've got the Ukrainian Federation's Robitnyk film on order, but it will be a while and it seems to me that the feds shut that publication down in 1918 anyway... I've got Työmies for the period, too, but I don't think the Finns attended. The only Volkszeitung I have so far starts 9/1/19, unfortunately. Carrite (talk) 02:36, 22 May 2010 (UTC)
BTW, read most of the Fraina Trial thing at work today. Interesting takeaway for me was that the CPA went underground in New York after the Nov. 7, 1919, Lusk raid, but still had headquarters aboveground in Chicago until after the night of Jan. 2/3. I'm not sure what it all means other than the fact that I hadn't pondered the idea that things went underground at a different pace in different places. Carrite (talk) 02:40, 22 May 2010 (UTC)
That's convenient that there's already a list drawn up. I want to get down to the Hoover Archives again this summer, where the Draper papers relating to the two CP books are located (he almost certainly will have a photocopy of this list somewhere in his stuff), so there's a decent chance I'll be able to bang into it there. The original he cites (I presume in NYC) is out of reach for me though... And it will be a while before I make it to Palo Alto, I'm just gearing up for a month long road trip/archive hopping expedition to Washington State, Minnesota Immigration History Research Center, Wisconsin Historical Society, and Michigan. So it'll be late summer before I head south. I'm spinning 1887 SLP stuff at the moment and will take a look at Novyi Mir as soon as I get a chance — probably mid-week. I'm almost positive that Revolutionary Age doesn't include such a list. best, Tim Carrite (talk) 16:39, 23 May 2010 (UTC)

Gitlow[edit]

Per: >>f you're going over to the Hoover Institution, perhaps, you might also want to take a stroll over to the Ben Gitlow archives. You notice the last three pamphlets on his list were the ones published by the evangelical Christian Crusade Ministries. It would be interesting to have one of these online to get a feel of Gitlows final political evolution (there is almost no biographical material available on his last years). Unfortunately the only 2 libraries worldcat says has a copy of them (Columbia & East Carolina) won't part with them (or even a photocopy) through inter-library loan. The only bookseller I can find is Bolerium which is selling the The Negro Question: Communist Civil War Policy. for $35, which is outrageous for a 12p. pamphlet, no matter how rare (I tried to hagle it down, but no luck). If you have the time, it may be worthwhile to take a digital camera and see if they have a copy of one of these pamphlets at Hoover. Its pretty easy to make a digital facsimile of a rare book taking digital photos of each page, (I've done it before) and they are all pretty short...

Hey, Dude, I've been through the Gitlow stuff once already and don't remember any of the late pamphlets among that — but his is among the stuff that I want to take a look at again, so I'll keep my eyes open. They don't allow cameras at the Hoover (and charge big bucks for photos that they take) but basically allow +/- 200 photocopies per academic year, so the way to capture that stuff is with their copy machine. $35 is steep, but given the rarity of the title, probably not far off of market value. I'll be giving all my money to Bhagwan John when I'm in town and will try to remember to add this one to the stack... He'll deal a little on price on big sales, plus he gives pretty good trade credit on stuff coming in... Carrite (talk) 14:38, 6 July 2010 (UTC)

Communist and SWP conventions[edit]

Hi, Dudeman,

I've been trying to clean up and elaborate United States presidential nominating conventions, and would like to add CP/WP and SWP conventions in the same format as I used for the Prohibitionists, SLP and SP. But what I've been able to scrape together so far just isn't sufficient. See User:Shakescene/conventions2#Communist, Workers' and Socialist Workers' Parties. One source I have (Tim Taylor's Book of Presidents, Arno Press 1972) actually gives opening dates for four of the earlier SWP nominating conventions, if they're any use to anyone, but I don't know where to get the essential cities for post-1960 SWP nominating conventions. It's also not clear from National conventions of the Communist Party USA which candidates were formally nominated by something one could reasonably compare to a presidential nominating convention, and which were named by the National Committee. Any help or pointers you have (or work you could do at the SWP or CPUSA Conventions articles) would be much appreciated. I'm sending User:Carrite a pointer to this thread, as it's a little hard to use a regular article talk page when discussing at least three different articles.

(By the way, I think I, under a different handle, have already talked with you at the Politics1 blog; if you haven't yet joined the SP History Yahoo! Group, I think you might learn, as well as be able to offer, some interesting stuff there.)

User:Alf.laylah.wa.laylah/Committee for Nonviolent Revolution[edit]

i saw your note on Peacemakers talk page, and read up on the topic and wrote article linked to above. i noticed that NawlinWiki deleted the redirect, and was worried that there had been an afd on the CNRV, so asked him about it here: User_talk:NawlinWiki#committee_for_nonviolent_revolution. now it's beginning to appear that the only thing there ever was was the redirect? i'm just trying to find out the history before i move my stub into article space. if you have anything to add to it, even before i do, i hope you'll feel free to do so!— alf.laylah.wa.laylah (talk) 22:19, 2 October 2011 (UTC)

STOP double standarts[edit]

I'm starting to get fed up about some apparently politically-driven double standarts. I dont have anything against a unified list, but putting the type of regime that recognize the SADR is at least unbalanced compared with others. As long as the SADR is a unrecognized state at the same level that Palestine, Taiwan, Kosovo, etc... it had to receive THE SAME TREATMENT as the rest of states in that category. So, or remove the type of regime from the SADR page , or add it to the Palestine, Kosovo, Taiwan , etc... pages. No animosity, simply seeking for equanimity.

Edit history of CP (Opposition)[edit]

Hi, Dudeman. I'm certainly no expert on moving pages (although Wikipedia has several help pages on how to do this), but, presuming that you'd set out a proper Request for Comment before moving Communist Party (Opposition) to Lovestoneites, you need to move the page history (and talk page history, if any), too. On a quick glance, there seem to be several hundred edits (beginning with your own) that need to be easily findable for reference. As I said, I'm no expert on Wikipedia:moving a page, but maybe you can get an experienced administrator to either give you tips or finish the job. Thanks. —— Shakescene (talk) 06:09, 2 March 2012 (UTC)

Your film lists[edit]

Hi,
In your absence, there has been a vacuum over at WWII films which I have been filling for a number of years for want of another volunteer.
You also created that distinct Holocaust list. (I have seen your note.)
What was your intention over the long term? How did you plan to prevent duplication across those two lists?
If WWII were not already gigantic, I would think merging the two pages would save trouble. Avoid quibbling over definitions.
I know you rarely visit this page, so my questions are rhetorical.

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.

Category move for Episcopal dioceses[edit]

Hi. I've reformatted the discussion you started at WP:CFD. (These things are tricky; I recall that it took me a very long time to get one formatted right!) I see that you've made significant progress on your manual move of the category, with the result that more than one-third of the category contents are now in the destination category. Please don't continue your manual-move project; let's discuss the category at CFD first. Not only does a bot move of a category save an enormous amount of work, but the whole process is far more orderly when it's done via CFD. It's important to discuss category moves because they can affect many category interrelationships that individual editors may not be aware of. Thanks! --Orlady (talk) 15:31, 26 April 2013 (UTC)

Edit at Ho Chi Minh[edit]

I reverted your addition of the template {{fact}} to the External links section of Ho Chi Minh. Since the link exists, there is no policy on Wikipedia that requires any further citation. If you think the link is inappropriate, you can delete it and let the other editors concerned with that page decide how to proceed. Or, preferably, you can discuss you concerns on the article's talk page to reach a consensus on the inclusion of the link. Either way asking editors to provide a citation for an external link is not correct. —    Bill W.    (Talk)  (Contrib)  — 16:47, 31 May 2013 (UTC)

Hey Bellerophon5685

I'm sending you this because you've made quite a few edits to the template namespace in the past couple of months. If I've got this wrong, or if I haven't but you're not interested in my request, don't worry; this is the only notice I'm sending out on the subject :).

So, as you know (or should know - we sent out a centralnotice and several watchlist notices) we're planning to deploy the VisualEditor on Monday, 1 July, as the default editor. For those of us who prefer markup editing, fear not; we'll still be able to use the markup editor, which isn't going anywhere.

What's important here, though, is that the VisualEditor features an interactive template inspector; you click an icon on a template and it shows you the parameters, the contents of those fields, and human-readable parameter names, along with descriptions of what each parameter does. Personally, I find this pretty awesome, and from Monday it's going to be heavily used, since, as said, the VisualEditor will become the default.

The thing that generates the human-readable names and descriptions is a small JSON data structure, loaded through an extension called TemplateData. I'm reaching out to you in the hopes that you'd be willing and able to put some time into adding TemplateData to high-profile templates. It's pretty easy to understand (heck, if I can write it, anyone can) and you can find a guide here, along with a list of prominent templates, although I suspect we can all hazard a guess as to high-profile templates that would benefit from this. Hopefully you're willing to give it a try; the more TemplateData sections get added, the better the interface can be. If you run into any problems, drop a note on the Feedback page.

moving to your talkpage-this is your map, let's talk here[edit]

Scouting World Map[edit]

I realize their is room for criticism on the map, but could you have informed me on my talk page before unilaterally deleting it? It did take alot of time and, as you say, hard work, completing it. If the nomenclature is the main problem I can work that out editing the description. You obviously know more about this as an Eagle Scout, I only got to Webalo. I was mainly concerned with showing which countries had "regular" organizations in good standing with the WOSM and which countries, for what ever reason, were served by other countries' scout organizations, only had unofficial Scout groups or had no scouting at all.--Bellerophon5685 (talk) 18:03, 14 July 2013 (UTC)

All right, what needs to be done with map? I know that the page distinguishes between "potential members", "countries with no Scouting", and "Other". Looking closer at the list and criteria, I realized that the "potential members" list was set up in 2008, and I couldn't really find any sources for it; likewise, I couldn't find much a difference between "countries with no Scouting" and "Other". I figured it would be best to create two classes for countries that did not have any WOSM representation - those with Scouting groups that are not members of WOSM - Central African Republic, Peoples Republic of China, Iraq, Afghanistan - and those where no Scout organizations are reported to exist - North Korea, Laos, Cuba, Burma. There was some difficulty in determining if there were scout groups in some of these areas - the evidence for Western Sahara and Somaliland is particularly sketchy - but I determined if there was RS for scouting of some kind in the areas they would be included in the first, lime green, cat.

As for the areas served by other countries Scout organizations, I concede that with all those little dots in the Caribbean, Oceania and Indian Ocean, it is difficult to determine if one dot is supposed to represent, for instance Reunion or Comoros, Norfolk Island or New Caledonia etc. Hopefully you can determine which dot represents what territory and we can establish the proper color code.

One territory I admittedly forgot was East Timor, so it will have to be colored in the correct color, which I think should be lime green.--Bellerophon5685 (talk) 01:13, 15 July 2013 (UTC)

I have just noticed this after reverting your addition of the map back into the article. The map is misleading. Countries join WOSM when there are several Scout organisation by them forming a committee which affiliates, or when there is a single organisation, that organisation affiliates. There is really no essential difference. In both situations there can be organisations that do not affiliate with WOSM, but might affiliate, for example, to the World Federation of Independent Scouts. So why do you distinguish the USA, UK, Australia, New Zealand, France and Denmark, for example, from all the ones you colour red. Also for France you say that the "Scouts et Guides de France" are the affiliating organisation. They are not. They joint several other organisations in forming Scoutisme Français, a committee that affiliates. Sorry, but the map is just wrong, but I encourage you to get it right and then it can be in the article. --Bduke (Discussion) 04:42, 15 July 2013 (UTC)
I think you misunderstand - red was merely supposed to symbolize that the countries has one or more regularly affiliated organizations. That could be a single group like the Boy Scouts of America, a federation of groups like in Israel, or two groups like in Canada. Like you say, there is no essential difference. USA, UK, Australia, New Zealand, France and Denmark all serve their own countries as well as other states and or non-sovereign areas under their own governments. Ergo Denmark also serves Greenland and Faroe Islands, Australia serves Nauru, US serves Palau, Micronesia, Marshall Islands, American Samoa, Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, the UK serves a bunch of them. Anytime one group served more than one jurisdiction, I thought that it justified indicating that on the map. For "normal" jurisdictions that only served one country I just used red.--Bellerophon5685 (talk) 04:59, 15 July 2013 (UTC)
First, I agree that the discussion should be here, but you might care to provide a link at Talk:List of World Organization of the Scout Movement members. Second, let us have a link here to the map itself at File:WOSMMembers.svg.png so we know what we are talking about. OK, I did misunderstand you, but the map is still utterly confusing. The text on the image page says "Other areas are served by other National societies", but this focuses on the other areas, which are small and most are difficult to see on the map. The focus of the map shows yellow for the USA, blue for UK, green for France, purple for Australia, and orange for New Zealand. This is distinguishing them from all the countries in red in a quite inappropriate way. They are not really different. I strongly disagree that serving more than one jurisdiction justifies indicating them in different colours on the map. It is as I said utterly confusing. --Bduke (Discussion) 06:31, 15 July 2013 (UTC)

Chaco crisis[edit]

Thanks for the feedback, that's a good point. I reworded the text a bit. The Chaco crisis was some time in the making prior to the 1932 war, see http://books.google.com/books?id=tW_eEVbVxpEC&pg=PA1062 "As tension continued in the disputed Chaco Boreal following the incident at Sorpresa in early 1927, Paraguayan Major Rafael Franco led an unauthorized attack on the fortress..." (5 December 1928) and http://books.google.com/books?id=baTjvUCdjIAC&pg=PA43 "At the 1929 Latin American Communist conference, Bolivian delegate Mendizábal called the looming Chaco conflict “a struggle between Yankee and English..." --Soman (talk) 18:58, 30 May 2014 (UTC)

Lions Clubs International[edit]

Lions Clubs International is as much an organization as Rotary International and Kiwanis. Are those going to be removed from the categories they are shown in? Best, User:Oldbeeg 184.35.27.171 (talk) 18:58, 11 July 2014 (UTC)

Sterling Hall bombing[edit]

The tags you added to this article made no apparent sense (asking for citations for links?). I've removed them. If there was something you were trying to accomplish, I couldn't figure it out. - SummerPhD (talk) 23:16, 30 July 2014 (UTC)
