I've tagged Zidelook as needing context, because I don't know what a MAPI connector is.

Global cooling graph[edit]

The global cooling graph has been discussed on the talk page, and its inclusion there has been rejected. Do not re-add it, or I will block you. Raul654 (talk) 03:10, 2 May 2008 (UTC)

Raul654 and WP:NPA[edit]

This posting is in reference to your posts at Talk:Global warming#Raul654. There's no reason to call out an editor on a talk page like that. If you believe that a certain user is acting inappropriately, exerting WP:OWNership or a page, whatever, you should try to be civil and explain your grievances. Moving to "dismiss" people because you think you've been mistreated isn't how Wikipedia works. If you two can't work things out, I'd suggest looking into dispute resolution or third opinion. If you believe he is abusing power in some way you could also try the administrators' noticeboard. Nobody is going to block you for making good-faith edits so long as you mind WP:3RR, so don't worry about that. But making personal attacks is an easy way to get blocked around here. If you remain civil, people will be much more likely to hear you out. There are numerous ways to try to work things out but I'd recommend removing any personal attacks you might've added to talk pages. I'll keep watch on your talk page so you can just reply here if you'd like to comment, or remove this if you don't think it's useful. Oren0 (talk) 04:21, 2 May 2008 (UTC)

Fair enough. Bjquinn (talk) 05:33, 2 May 2008 (UTC)

Unanimity is not necessary[edit]

On Talk:Global warming you wrote

The editors on global warming can't be neatly split into two sides. Yes, there is the general consensus among the editors who frequent the article that the existence of anthropogenic global warming is robustly supported by the available evidence. Beyond that, there are many different editors with many different approaches, ideals, and expectations for the article. It's a good thing that everyone on the talk page addressing your comments doesn't have exactly the same opinion. Different intersecting perspectives can greatly improve the article. That includes your perspective. As long as you follow all of the rules, read the sources, and sensibly analyze them, everything that makes sense for you to go into the article will also make sense for other people to go into the article. The article doesn't read as it does because editors are warping the literature; it reads as it does because the evidence soundly supports the facts and ideas presented in the article. It's important that we present the ideas fairly, and skeptical people can help to do that. - Enuja (talk) 00:24, 4 May 2008 (UTC)

Point taken. It's just that a few of the editors are a bit aggressive and, being in the process of promoting a somewhat skeptical viewpoint, I had sometimes found myself being shot down for multiple and conflicting reasons from different people. I'm learning.  :) Bjquinn (talk) 06:19, 5 May 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of File:Unix-time1234567890-small.JPG[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on File:Unix-time1234567890-small.JPG requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section I4 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is an image with an unknown source or an unknown copyright status which has been tagged as such for more than 7 days, and it still lacks the necessary information.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on [[ Talk:File:Unix-time1234567890-small.JPG|the talk page]] explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.
