Oh da yum![edit]

Hi! I took the liberty of putting your new entry over on the unusual articles page. Might go well with that Vietnamese rice wine with the whole pickled cobra in it. Bon appetit! - Lucky 6.9 17:01, 11 September 2006 (UTC)

Thank you, that was quite fast. :-) --BorgQueen 17:10, 11 September 2006 (UTC)

I've put it up for Did You Know. Good find, BQ. —Bunchofgrapes (talk) 02:09, 12 September 2006 (UTC)

Fried spider[edit]

Interesting article. Is there any chance of a picture to go along with it so we can use it on Template:Did you know? (The image I mean) I would feature the article anyway, but I'd like to see a pic too) - Mgm|(talk) 10:48, 12 September 2006 (UTC)

Very neat article. Would make a great DYK -- Samir धर्म 10:50, 12 September 2006 (UTC)
Hmm, I've added an image — I hope Creative Commons 2.0 is ok? --BorgQueen 12:17, 12 September 2006 (UTC)
It is... but not Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 2.0, which [1] is... We can't take the non-commercial, and you're listing the wrong tag in the image page. —Bunchofgrapes (talk) 14:42, 12 September 2006 (UTC)
Sigh. --BorgQueen 14:51, 12 September 2006 (UTC)
Officious, ain't I? Oh well, no harm done... I'm pretty sure Flickr doesn't have any commercial-use Creative Commons Skuon spider pics (a surprising number of all-rights-reserved one though!). We could try writing to people and seeing if anyone would be willing to relicense... probably wouldn't happen in time for DYK though. —Bunchofgrapes (talk) 15:00, 12 September 2006 (UTC)

DYK[edit]

Updated DYK query On 13 September, 2006, Did you know? was updated with a fact from the article fried spiders, which you created. If you know of another interesting fact from a recently created article, then please suggest it on the "Did you know?" talk page.

68.40.119.153's block[edit]

I'm curious why you gave 68.40.119.153 a 24 hour block. I looked at his contributions, and although they aren't exactly helpful, it seems more like he might have been trying to make good faith edits, and it doesn't look much like vandalism to me. He didn't violate 3RR either, so a 24 hour block seems a bit harsh in my opinion. If you still think it's worth that long of a block, then OK but I just thought I'd mention it. (Note that I have no connection with that IP address — I just saw his contributions to Coca-Cola because I have that page on my watchlist.) Philbert2.71828 00:48, 17 September 2006 (UTC)

Unblocked for now. Please keep an eye to see if the IP user makes disruptive edits again. --BorgQueen 00:51, 17 September 2006 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Thanks for your timely revert to that sub page of mine, it appears to be the same person (looking at the ip range) so I've protected it in the hope they'll find a better use for their time. --Alf melmac 17:05, 24 September 2006 (UTC)

Antichthon merger[edit]

Blocking 209.12.109.140[edit]

This user has only made one recent edit, and I can't even prove it was wrong... but looking at the contributions made by this user, I've yet to find one which _wasn't_ vandalism. Worse, they appear to be quite subtle vandalism which can't be picked up by a bot, they require someone to be really paying attention to notice. The user has been blocked four times already, most recently by yourself. Can I suggest they be considered for another longterm block (again) if they add any more hard to pick up errors?

--Merlinme 14:37, 4 October 2006 (UTC)

Let's wait till the user makes more blatant edits. I don't think just one subtle disruptive edit warrants a longer block, but if they continue this behavior they will be blocked. --BorgQueen 14:53, 4 October 2006 (UTC)

Anonymous users[edit]

Looking at the edit history for the article Jolly Roger, [[2]], one can see a number of acts of vandalism by three anonymous users with very similar IP addresses: 72.159.133.25, 72.159.133.22, and 72.159.133.21. Is it possible to determine if these three IPs all direct to the same person? All have received multiple warnings for vandalism, and two have been blocked for same. If we can determine that all three are actually the same person, can said IPs be blocked, given that they are vandalism-only accounts? Thank you for your time and attention. ---Charles 20:29, 4 October 2006 (UTC)

Well yes, it appears to be one user using a range of IP. But I am not sure if they can be called "vandalism-only accounts" since they do not have accounts in the first place. If you meant all edits from the IPs are vandalism so if they can be blocked longer, I would start with 24 hour anonymous only block and if the IP range vandalism persists they will be given longer blocks. I will have the article on my watchlist. --BorgQueen 20:41, 4 October 2006 (UTC)
Thanks for your attention on this. ---Charles 21:53, 4 October 2006 (UTC)

I am not sure if 195.195.239.215 is a network or shared computer, but there has been some vandilism from that computer. Just to let you known.

  • Vandalism from 168.11.60.250: very bad.
  • Vandalism from 212.44.58.228
  • Vandalism from 86.1.104.159 & 65.114.5.2

Hello[edit]

Hello. Please excuse my ignorance. Are you a moderator? I saw your warning on a web page for someone who messed up the Mercury page. Is it not possible to ban him? Why would anybody do this? Why do you let them? Rosejpalmer 05:19, 5 October 2006 (UTC)

The user has already been blocked indef as a vandal account. --BorgQueen 07:58, 5 October 2006 (UTC)
I forgot to answer that cute question "Why would anybody do this?". Well it depends on each vandal, but my opinion is that most chronic vandals are attention whores who happen to have found their little show stage here. --BorgQueen 17:45, 5 October 2006 (UTC)

Block on User:YoGabbaGabba[edit]

Hi BorgQueen, thanks for the indef block on User:YoGabbaGabba, I was about to do the same myself. One small thought: could I remind you to put a {{test7}} tag on the user';s talk page after an indef block? It educates the user and helps other admins such as myself? A {{indefblocked}} on the user page is useful too. Thanks, Gwernol 18:18, 14 November 2006 (UTC)

Useful templates, indeed. Taken care of. --BorgQueen 18:34, 14 November 2006 (UTC)
Thanks, much appreciated. Gwernol 18:48, 14 November 2006 (UTC)

Jerky (food) article dispute[edit]

Hello. If you get a chance, could you please stop by the Jerky article and help resolve a dispute regarding proper WP:External links. The relevant discussion is at Talk:Jerky (food)#Recipes, and I am seeking third party opinions since another user and I seem to be at an impasse. I am sending this to all editors who have recently edited the article or its talk page. Thanks so much for your time, Satori Son 17:26, 20 November 2006 (UTC)

Images Of Singers[edit]

I've found pictures of the singers on Innosense, on the official website. However, For each individual member's picture is only a headshot not much bigger than a typical avatar. Can/should I still upload them for use on their respective pages? (Images are here: [3].) -WarthogDemon 01:54, 21 November 2006 (UTC)

Totally Inappropriate Block[edit]

Admin Glen S has made a totally inapprobriate block here. Please Unblock. There are Two very good reasons. 1- The users are not the same and 2-Just as Important the reason given was evading of block! But the the previous block of 31 hours had already EXPIRED!! 3- As far as I know users do not always choose their ISP address so it wouldn't be intentional (this is moot since these two people are not sock puppets)

Please see time diff: (over 31 hours had pasted even for the sake of argument it was the same IP address user which it clearly was not) [[4]] [[5]] Please unblock User 119.60 and notify/Warn User:Glen_S of his terrible mistake. Thanks

I have reason to believe that Glen_S's block of this user therefore was a pretext and possible racially motivated for attempted contributions to the Michael Richards article, which would be a is a serious violation of WP. Thank you. 71.111.117.65

I keep getting harassed/blanked and reverted by User:NetScott also from my userpage and and ANI page. Please warn or block him him. Thanks 71.111.117.65 12:56, 24 November 2006 (UTC)

May I point it out that creating an account will likely eliminate all these hassles? I always wonder why some contributors insist to remain as IP numbers, and complain when not having an account leads them into confusion and chaos. Besides, even if you are right this kind of complaints will hardly get you anywhere. Just a thought. --BorgQueen 13:13, 24 November 2006 (UTC)

Yes but wouldn't u be justified to unblock 71.111.115.155? It is very inappropriate and also warn or block NetScott I feel he is harassing and stalking me out of spite and no good reason. See al the reverts and posting of my personal ISP he has done tom today! Its like intimidating people who are different. Thanks for your help. 71.111.117.65 13:21, 24 November 2006 (UTC)

BorgQueen, I would suggest just blocking this latest block avoiding IP. This user has proven to be repetitively abusive. See User_talk:71.111.119.60 and User_talk:71.111.115.155 (you may need to review the histories of those talk page for they may be targetted for blanking by this editor). Thanks. (Netscott) 13:23, 24 November 2006 (UTC)
Oh and add admin shopping (spamming): spam1, spam2, spam3. (Netscott) 13:41, 24 November 2006 (UTC)
Here is evidence of NetScott's stalking and reverts and other abuses [[6]]

Please help and block him. 71.111.117.65 14:25, 24 November 2006 (UTC)

Hello[edit]

I ran across this username in recent changes [7]. It is uncomfortably close to yours. I would have blocked it for username it does not seem to be a vandal. I just thought I would bring it your attention.--Dakota 20:43, 26 November 2006 (UTC)

Yes to your question. It is by far to close. Sometimes if they are non-offensive I give them a {{Subst:username}}.--Dakota 20:56, 26 November 2006 (UTC)

Africa[edit]

Hi. I noticed you s-protected this article. Do you think the level of vandalism justifies it? I don't feel especially strongly about it but my own impression was that vandalism was being held at bay fairly effectively. Sorry if that seems to be sniping at your action, it isn't meant that way.

A story I think you'll like[edit]

Your Jimmy Wales quote reminded of a 30 year old memory. The year was 1975. I was still in college studying digital electrical engineering. Gene Roddenberry spoke on campus, and I attended. He screened the pilot of the original Star Trek series, and he told some anectodes about production and getting the series past the suits at the network. But then he diverged into what technology would be giving us in the future. That night he predicted that the day would come within 20 years that digital technology would connect everybody in the world. And he specifically spoke of a time when "the entire body of human knowledge" would be available electronically at every desktop. I went home that night and related what I'd heard tomy roommate. He said something like, "You mean that in 20 years everybody will have their own computer? That's B.S." We made a $100 bet that night whether that much would come true. I think I won that bet, but these many years on, I have lost track of him, so I can't hit him up for a concession (and less importantly the $100). Although not everything Roddenberry predicted that night happened by 1995, I certainly had my own computer and internet access by then, and there was already widespread access to some of knowledge held at universities. And today, well it's hard to see how anything will stop Roddenberry's prediction about the entire body of human knowledge from coming true, and soon. So I thought that somebody who calls herself BorgQueen would find this recollection interesting. Karlhahn 19:36, 26 December 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for the recollection. Yes, Gene Roddenberry was a visionary and made a remarkable contribution to the humankind. --BorgQueen 20:12, 26 December 2006 (UTC)

Ramdrake 3RR violation[edit]

Hi BorgQueen, since you have been editing the page foie gras and have witnessed what is going on there, couldn't you have an opinion on the 4 reverts by Ramdrake in less than 2 hours that are listed on the 3RR noticeboard? No one seems to comment on that, and even less take action. I do not myself push for strict enforcement of the 3RR rule in such a situation; it is just that I have been recently blocked unfairly for an alleged 3RR violation, and I get the impression that adminship on this issue is getting very one-sided. David Olivier 12:09, 27 December 2006 (UTC)

Notice[edit]

I have written a new article. Naturally, it involves disgusting food and a catchy title: Sonofabitch stew. Enjoy. —Bunchofgrapes (talk) 05:07, 28 December 2006 (UTC)

How timely. I just had a beef stew. --BorgQueen 05:11, 28 December 2006 (UTC)

Hi,

please see the message that concerns you at the end of the foie gras talk page. It concerns your last editing. Benio76 16:08, 30 December 2006 (UTC)

DYK[edit]

Thanks for Welcome[edit]

Hi BorgQueen, thanks for your warm welcome yesterday. I got myself right into the middle of a battle over an edit in Anti-Brahmanism and would appreciate your advice. I have made a good faith attempt at establishing NPOV and my edits were reverted wholesale with some weird accusation in the Edit Summary. I decided to revert back (since the other user did nothing but reverting, nothing was lost.) I resolved to stay in this silly rv-war until something else happens. That same reverting user accuses me of "vandalism". I don't think that there is reasonable cause for this accusation. But having watched related articles, I am prepared for some trouble. Please advise if you can on how I should proceed. Should I just give up? This is quite an exciting excercise in cyber-democracy. Wow. Thanks for any advice you can give. Gschadow 04:57, 2 January 2007 (UTC)

Hmm, when other editors disagree with your edits it is usually not a good idea to resort to edit warring. Can you try to discuss with them on the talk page of the article? At least you should give them your reason why you are doing it, clear and loud. If the discussion helps nothing, then you will need to appeal to the third parties. --BorgQueen 05:23, 2 January 2007 (UTC)

Dialog continues on my user page... oops, sorry, if you so wish, that is. Just don't want to clutter your page with my little thing. Thanks. Gschadow 05:53, 2 January 2007 (UTC)

User talk:137.222.10.67[edit]

Hey, there -- just looking into this user's unblock request, and I am inclined to agree that a week-long block seems excessive, at least at first glance. No blocks since June 2006, and not much talk page activity since then, either. For their contribs in the past month, only this one strikes me as undisputable vandalism (I could have missed some, but my main point is that there's apparently good edits coming through). Are there any deleted edits, or other incidents or information that could help shed a little light on this matter? Am I missing something? =\ Thanks for any time you may put into this. Luna Santin 00:14, 17 January 2007 (UTC)

Unblocked for now. --BorgQueen 00:23, 17 January 2007 (UTC)
Ah, thanks. I can't picture a situation where you'd need it, but if you need help with anything related to this, feel free to let me know. Luna Santin 00:31, 17 January 2007 (UTC)

The Satanic Verses[edit]

It looks like the user who moved The Satanic Verses (novel) to The Satanic Verses forgot to move the talk page as well. I saw you added tags to the new talk page today, could you move the old one over and merge the histories? Thanks!--Cúchullain t/c 19:27, 19 January 2007 (UTC)

Taken care of. --BorgQueen 19:33, 19 January 2007 (UTC)

Reverting Vish[edit]

BorgQueen, please desist from reverting any entry in the article on Hindu if the merit of the subject matter is not apparent to you. Dr. Vish Ayengar has been held in high esteem by scholars including in the United States. Kanchanamala 12:55, 21 January 2007 (UTC)

Hi, thanks for the note. If you think my reverting was inappropriate, then by all means, revert it back to the version you like. The current semi-protection blocks only IP users and new accounts (upto 4 days old, if I am not mistaken), which means you are free to edit. But it seems to me there is some disagreement between regular editors there, so I cannot guarantee your edit will stay, for I am not one of those regular editors on Hindu. Please know that I have a deep respect for Hinduism, and don't hesitate to contact me if there is anything I can help. Thanks. --BorgQueen 13:46, 21 January 2007 (UTC)

Why delete my article?[edit]

Hello,

I tried to make my first contribution to Wikipedia... hard to learn so I first posted only a link which was deleted, after reading all the help section I understood why. Then I made a full article Aquarius_gay_hotel_in_Patong this place is the one I spend all my holidays in, this is more than an institution so I think it deserves a page and I promissed the owner I will make one. I tried to be very factual, even not so much description but you deleted it, I really don't understand why.

Thank you for your answer on the way to improve it, this hotel, is so big and so popular that it deserves it, as well as more comment on phuket island and patong beach. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Tomtomfr (talkcontribs) 08:33, 1 February 2007 (UTC).

"Wigi Wigi" versus "Wiki Wiki" in Blue Hawaii article.[edit]

"Wiki Wiki" is the Hawaiian phrase for "hurry up" or "quick!". There is no such phrase in the Hawaiian language as "Wigi Wigi". I ought to know, I was born and raised in Hawai'i, and was educated at the Kamehameha Schools/Bernice Pauahi Bishop Estate. If someone can prove that the line in the film is "Wigi Wigi" based on the published screeplay, then "Wigi Wigi" should stand. If not, it should be "Wiki Wiki", despite how Elivs pronounced it - unless the trivia is that Elvis mispronounced the words, in which case the trivia should be made more explicit to explain that fact. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 207.38.163.84 (talk) 19:00, 11 February 2007 (UTC).

I wonder when BorgQueen will respond to my very valid remarks?

Sorry for delayed reply. You are welcome to make the changes to the article if you can cite references. Thanks. --BorgQueen 06:27, 17 February 2007 (UTC)

monkey brain[edit]

I'm not sure, but it seems you had objection to content on monkey brain discussion. I felt the information provided was objective, accurate and relevant to the monkey brain page. I would happy to discuss your thoughts otherwise. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Barrolltc (talkcontribs) 22:50, 11 February 2007 (UTC).

Nevrax[edit]

Is there a reason why Nevrax was deleted back in Feb 2006, and can it be recreated? What's G1 by the way. I think there's enough material to have an entry about it, and it is notable especially with involvement by the Free Software Foundation in trying to acquire it and turn it's software into opensource software. [9] --Witchinghour 08:42, 13 February 2007 (UTC)

The article was deleted because it was written in Romanian, and was clearly someone's résumé. Yes, it can be recreated if you have totally different topic in mind. --BorgQueen 00:03, 14 February 2007 (UTC)

Robot or cyborg?[edit]

Hi, are you a robot or a cyborg. This is relevant to how you are classified under User:Radiant!/Classification of admins. JoshuaZ 15:43, 14 February 2007 (UTC)

According to the article Borg: "The Borg are a fictional race of cyborgs in the Star Trek universe." --BorgQueen 20:28, 14 February 2007 (UTC)
Yes, but the queen herself as depicted in First Contact was apparently a robotic entity with a flesh covering. JoshuaZ 02:10, 2 March 2007 (UTC)
According to the Star Trek canon, the Borg Queen was created from the assimilation of a female humanoid lifeform (Species 125) who was, for whatever reason, considered suitable for the coordinator job. Therefore she is a cybernetic organism, an organic lifeform that is expanded/enhanced by mechanical body parts like any Borg drone is, rather than a robotic entity. --BorgQueen 09:46, 2 March 2007 (UTC)
Ok, goes to show I should read more technical stuff or maybe watch voyager. It actually doesn't matter since you've been moved into the extraterrestial classification. JoshuaZ 06:32, 3 March 2007 (UTC)

Block of User:Beostaerling[edit]

Why did you indef block User:Beostaerling after their 48-hour block ended? As far as I can tell, the only vandalism they made afterwards was creating Alexander Radyushin. That's hardly enough to justify an indefinite block, in my opinion. I'm talking to them on IRC, and they say they regret their actions. But I don't want to unblock without talking to you first, lest we start wheel warring. Veinor (talk to me) 15:21, 9 March 2007 (UTC)

The reason for the block was: "vandal account with no useful edits". But I've unblocked him to give a second chance. Let's see. --BorgQueen 17:34, 9 March 2007 (UTC)

Durio kutejensis[edit]

Greetings! I was going through the WP:PLANTS assessment quality log and noticed the project tag was removed from Durio kutejensis. Upon further investigation, it looks like you redirected the page to Durian. From what I understand, this is a current species name, correct? Why, then, redirect to the genus? Every species deserves its own article--that's actually the goal of WP:PLANTS. (Durian, by the way, is a fantastic article. Excellent job!). Cheers, --Rkitko (talk) 06:25, 15 March 2007 (UTC)

Hi, Durio kutejensis was a stub article and it didn't tell much more about the species than what is told on List of Durio species (if I recall correctly), hence the merging. If you see some possibility for expansion, you are more than welcome to revert my redirecting. Thanks for the compliment on Durian. --BorgQueen 06:32, 15 March 2007 (UTC)
Ah, I see. I hadn't looked at the list. First impression is to make stubs of all the small descriptions next to each species. There's always room for expansion, though a lot of the articles I've worked on will never get past stub-class because of a lack of published information (see Stylidium kunthii), but photos, taxonomic information, larger species descriptions can always be added. My instinct is always to create even the smallest sub-stub for expansion later. Also, WP:LIST does exactly spell it out, but it suggests that lists shouldn't contain descriptions for each item. See List of Drosera species for one of my favorite species lists. I'd be more than happy to help create/categorize/assess the species pages and cleanup the list, but I don't want to step on your toes! Let me know what you think of my proposal. Cheers, --Rkitko (talk) 07:00, 15 March 2007 (UTC)
If you are willing to take up all the hard work, I don't see why not. :-D --BorgQueen 07:03, 15 March 2007 (UTC)
Hard work is what I live for! Plus I need something to do while I'm supervising BotanyBot. (You should also consider joining us over at WikiProject Plants. You've done a lot of great work within the scope of the project and it'd be great to have you participate in our discussions. More ideas and viewpoints are always welcome!) --Rkitko (talk) 07:11, 15 March 2007 (UTC)
Excellent! 1 down, 29 to go? :-) I'll return to work on the rest later. Just another possible suggestion for you: WP:NC (flora) is the naming convention for flora. In some cases such as coffee and Coffea arabica it may be necessary to split the article between the fruit/produce and the genus or species. I'm thinking Durian may also benefit from such a split since there are several species that produce the popular fruit, but not all members of the genus do so. The purpose and goal of the Durian and Durio articles would be quite different. Just something else to gnaw on. For now, I'm going to bed! Best, --Rkitko (talk) 08:20, 15 March 2007 (UTC)

Blocking of User:129.94.6.28 (UNSW)[edit]

Hi BorgQueen,

I watch the IP talk pages of my school, the University of New South Wales, in case I'll need to forward abuse reports to the IT department. However, I do find your recent 1 month block perplexing considering that the IP address has produced far more positive contributions over the month of March than vandalism. 129.94.6.28 (talk contribs). I won't unblock it myself due to the conflict of interest, but I would urge you to review your decision carefully. --  Netsnipe  ►  04:26, 20 March 2007 (UTC)

The IP has been unblocked as you requested. Thanks for your note. --BorgQueen 04:34, 20 March 2007 (UTC)

block of user[edit]

hello, you recently blocked our school from wikipedia probably because of the vandalism from one of our students. if you do not unblock us i will be forced to take this case to a higher matter. this has caused my school to have much confusion as to why wikipedia will not work. you must ceast and desist this blocking or were going to have problems mister. i got ten complaints today as to why students could not create accounts on wikipedia today! --Toccsevobal 22:44, 20 March 2007 (UTC) Suzanna Foo, Principle Brooklyn Heights Middle School

Are you considering legal action? Because if you are, then you must cease editing Wikipedia immediately per the policy regarding legal action. I also wonder why you called a user named BorgQueen 'mister'. Furthermore, the IP address of the school is required in order to determine whether to unblock.

Great job; congratulations! :-) :-) Sorry I didn't have the energy to chime in there. —Bunchofgrapes (talk) 02:42, 27 March 2007 (UTC)

I concur, excellent job! Also letting you know I didn't forget about List of Durio species. I'll be getting back to it shortly. And yes, it does look like the featured lists have a little description. Perhaps I'll have to look at them a bit more and see what kind of table I can come up with. I'm thinking alphabetized list with a column noting unique features that set each species apart from one another and another column: "Edible fruit? Yes/No". Maybe a "cultivated? Yes/No" column, too. Thoughts? It'd be nice to get that to featured list status. I think it'd be pretty easy, too. Cheers, --Rkitko (talk) 02:33, 1 April 2007 (UTC)

The ongoing Vand battle that is Virginia Tech massacre[edit]

Hey BorgQueen,

Just after your views in relation to this matter, at the suggestion of another admin who refused my unprotect request. While the main page policy only applies to the Featured Article, I believe that the established users (especially given the number of hits) can probably hold off the vandals. Failing unprotection, how long do you reckon this article is going to need protection?

Thanks for taking a look at this. MojoTas 03:05, 18 April 2007 (UTC)

The article has been unprotected. --BorgQueen 03:11, 18 April 2007 (UTC)

You were supportive in the successful effort to clean up the Kama Sutra page, and I would like to recruit you for a similar effort on the group of pages Chakra and Kundalini, both of which are very poorly sourced and subject to frequent insertion of non-encyclopedic content. Would you be willing to watchlist those pages and help provide a neutral POV if disputes arise over efforts to insist on better sourcing and compliance with Wikipedia:Footnotes?

Hi BorgQueen, just a quick followup after I was also contacted by the same user: I did indeed delete the article Raymi as nn bio/vanity, and it seems you deleted a very similar article called Raymi the minx. I was confused a bit because the anon asked me why I deleted Raymi the minx, then came here and found he asked you about Raymi and was referred to me :P Anyway, both articles were definitely CSD A7 speedy candidates... -- Ferkelparade π 08:24, 22 May 2007 (UTC)
Oh, another followup: I just went to check the alleged world-famous blogger's website and found that the URL raymitheminx.com has apparently been taken over by some domain peddler, so it seems a very safe bet to assume non-notability for the blogger -- Ferkelparade π 08:31, 22 May 2007 (UTC)

I've found I could simply tag it with an autobiography alert; he looks somewhat notable, even if it's just him saying so. It'd be a shame to just delete the page, it looks great! Hee. --健次(derumi)talk 06:08, 3 June 2007 (UTC)

Question about categories and See Also[edit]

Hi, I noticed that you refined some of the categories for the article on [| Elvria Arellano]. I think those were good changes actually. Hence, that's why I am coming to you for some advice. As you may or may not have noticed, I removed Category and "See Also" links in the article for the term Mexican-American because Ms. Arellano is in fact only a Mexican national, not an American. If she were an American, she would not be notable because she would not have had problems with US immigration etc. etc. This morning, one of two users I have previously been in an edit war with over the article reinserted the "See Also" link stating: "Reinserting Mexican-American tags. Dispite the title of the article, the name "Saul" occures 7 times in this article, the word "son" occures 6 times, and the word "mother" occures 2 times." Based on that statement, I feel it is only a matter of time before he adds the Mexican-American category back as well [update, looking again at the diff, seems he did actually add back the category as well but did it using bad syntax, hence not displayed?]. It certainly is true her child Saul is a Mexican-American but the article is about her with references about him as needed. I would have no objection to such tags on an article about Saul specifically but think it is misleading in an article focused on her. I don't want to get into another edit war with these guys but I really believe the reinserted information is incorrect. What can I do here? Thanks 16:11, 3 June 2007 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by LordPathogen (talkcontribs)

I suggest you try to discuss your concerns on the talk page of the article. If things get worse, then we have procedures like the mediation committee. But for the moment, you will need to talk to them first. --BorgQueen 16:55, 3 June 2007 (UTC)

Your deletion of Tim Anderson Jnr[edit]

Good morning,

I am an IT technician at Dr Challoner's Grammar School and have noted from our proxy logs yesterday that a student used a school computer to create the page Tim Anderson Jnr, which was subsequently deleted by you as an attack page. Such an attack page constitutes bullying under school policy and I was wondering if there is any way I could see a copy of the content that was submitted so that it can be passed to our Student Development Office for action?

If you prefer to contact me directly regarding this, please feel free to email me at my school address, jschlackman [-a-] challoners.com, and I am happy to provide any supporting evidence you may require.

Thank you in advance for your time.

Barcelona Talk[edit]

Thanks for the reply BorgQueen but you will see an example of what I mean with Andromeda's latest edit. The information she removed in one fell stroke was the following (using the spurious excuse that it was "poorly sourced"). Note that the original entry contained the link to the Barcelona Field Studies Centre (http://geographyfieldwork.com/BarcelonaPollution1.htm) but did not copy in this "cut and paste" text below.


Environmental problems

(1) Noise

Barcelona shares various environmental problems with other major cities. A particularly acute one is noise. Data cited by the Barcelona Field Studies Centre reveals that 65% of the city's population is subject to over 65 decibels of noise throughout the day (0800 - 2200 hours) and a further 35% to between 55 and 65 decibels - significantly higher than World Health Organization (WHO) recommended levels (a WHO document discussing noise levels and what they mean can be found here).

(2) Air quality

Another severe problem concerns air quality. During the summer, it is estimated that over 66% of Barcelona's population is exposed to ozone levels in excess of 180ug/m3, and over 66% of the population are exposed to NO2 levels in excess of 200 um/m3. These figures (also cited by the Barcelona Field Studies Centre) are significantly above recommended WHO maximum levels.

Personally, I wouldn't be the least surprised if Andromeda was one of the army of Barcelona City Council hacks removing any less flattering references to Barcelona. It seems pretty amazing that the article contains reams of text on the most obscure episodes of Barcelona's ancient history yet the major environmental challenges facing a modern city of some 4 million (taking the broader metropolitan definition) is censored from the article.'

Well, I am a traditionalist who is fond of British English as much as you are, but we are not supposed to change the American spelling into the British only because we personally believe the British English is "the correct English". Please see Wikipedia:Manual_of_Style#National_varieties_of_English. --

BorgQueen 09:25, 19 July 2007 (UTC)

Can I buy into this? If the article is about a British, Commonwealth or European topic, English English is preferred. If it's a US topic, then even the most British amongst us would be foolhardy to change it. --Amandajm 04:27, 29 July 2007 (UTC)

Caroline324 and Cheese[edit]

I just have a kind of feeling that the constipation and farts may have been intended to be a sensible, meaningful contribution, supported by the reference to lactose intolerance. Cheese has long been associated with both. Possibly we were looking at the first meaningful edit from that person, regardless of the fact that it was uncited and "unseemly"! Unless you have already made a few warnings and had them ignored, I think perhaps your action was a bit harsh. --Amandajm 04:27, 29 July 2007 (UTC)

Hello. Just let you know that one of the images you uploaded, Image:Edogawa lampo.jpg, is most likely not in public domain. In order for that picture to be in public domain, it had to be published before December 31st 1956, or photographed before 1946 and not published for 10 years thereafter (see {{PD-Japan-oldphoto}}) – in short, Edogawa had to be 61 years old or younger when it was taken.

Replaceable fair use Image:Lunette Sky Watcher.jpg[edit]

Replaceable fair use

Thanks for uploading Image:Lunette Sky Watcher.jpg. I noticed the 'image' page specifies that the image is being used under fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first fair use criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed image could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this image is not replaceable, please:

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

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace the fair use image by finding a freely licensed image of its subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or a similar) image under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our fair use criteria. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, fair use images which could be replaced by free-licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if not used in an article), per our Fair Use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. —Remember the dot (talk) 03:47, 3 October 2007 (UTC)

Cannabis (drug)[edit]

You know you aren't stopping the vandalism, you are just stopping the edits. I hope you remove the protection soon. 199.125.109.93 05:53, 23 October 2007 (UTC)

You know all you have to do is to create an account, and wait for 4 days, and you don't have to worry about the semi-protection. Most vandals do not have such patience — which is the reason why the semi-protection is so effective — but serious editors with legitimate contribution will not have any problem. I hope you will understand. --BorgQueen 11:01, 23 October 2007 (UTC)
Serious editors? There is no way to tell how serious someone is, other than by their actions. As you can see the article continues to get vandalized. What you are doing is blocking serious editors who don't wish to register a username. It is not Wikipedia policy to require registration. Everyone can edit, remember? There is no reason to protect this article. Please remove. 199.125.109.72 23:57, 25 October 2007 (UTC)
Please see WP:PROTECT#Semi-protection. It is the Wikipedia policy to use semi-protection for "articles subject to heavy and continued vandalism". And if you check the protection log of Cannabis (drug), you will see a long history of semi-protection on and off since 2006 January. --BorgQueen 10:23, 26 October 2007 (UTC)
I don't mind it being protected periodically, just not for long periods of time, and not continuously. 199.125.109.99 00:30, 27 October 2007 (UTC)

I'm considering including all active and semi-active admins on the same page (with some sort of activity indicator).

In any event, BorgHunter is currently in the semi-active list. -- Rick Block (talk) 04:30, 25 October 2007 (UTC)

Thiers Issard[edit]

Regarding your edit in the Thiers Issard article, I would like to point out that while some of the See also links were questionable, many others were closely related to the article and therefore the removal of the whole section as in here was unjustified.

Don't stereotype vandalism[edit]

I edited the diamond page to be in proper english. The words that were changed were for that purpose. The words that were removed were removed because their existance in that form do not make sense. Between is defined as an intermediate of two values, not three. Unless I can see some conclusive evidence or citations indicating why there should be "between" three different values on "various [unspecified] tests", the content should be removed, if not at least for gramatic reasons. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.194.147.60 (talk) 06:13, 30 October 2007 (UTC)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dan_Antonioli[edit]

Can you take a peek at Dan_Antonioli. There is a copyright violation tag on it and I was just told the article is being deleted. Can you take a peek, and see what the fuss is about? I can't see the article anymore. There were some strong words exchanged last week in the deletion process, and I suspect this may be a continuation of the process to eliminate the article. The argument is now about how much text in the quote function of the citations constitutes fair use under the DMCA. Have you had the pleasure of eating a durian? --Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) 22:13, 30 October 2007 (UTC)

Let me trim a bit, they were long because the article was up for deletion as non notable. The quote was to let people judge for themselves, and see the text in situ. --Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) 22:34, 30 October 2007 (UTC)


Take a peek now. Are you agreeing that quoting lede text is a violation of the DMCA, even though it has been upheld in every court except "Google vs Belgium"? Remember the servers for the English Wikipedia are in the US in Florida, soon to be California. --Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) 22:39, 30 October 2007 (UTC)

I will readd the tag, and you can remove it if you still agree? ok? --Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) 22:44, 30 October 2007 (UTC)

Ok, its back up. --Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) 22:45, 30 October 2007 (UTC)

Note: Please don't confuse the article for deletion nomination and the copyright issue. The two aren't related in anyway, and from what I can see, the only two persons involved in both were Mr. Norton and myself. I voted to keep the article. However, I also told Mr. Norton that I believed the massive quote inclusions were a problem. The strong words were in relation to the validity of such an extensive inclusion of material copied into the references and the actual need for it in context of how it was being presented. In fact, the issue about this use of the quote and massive copying & pasting isn't confined to this article alone, it just happened to be the one in which it was raised. Mr. Norton archived this page to his sandbox on 10/29. Wildhartlivie 23:55, 30 October 2007 (UTC)

Durian 2[edit]

So have you eaten a durian yet? I had one in Thailand. They sell them by me at the Asian grocery, but I haven't a clue how to know when one is ripe. In Thailand I left the tiniest scrap of durian in the car, and when we returned the car smelled so bad, we had to drive the rest of the way with all the windows open. --Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) 22:48, 30 October 2007 (UTC)

Yes, I've had one but I don't particularly like it. If you read the article carefully you will see how to know when one is ripe. --BorgQueen 22:55, 30 October 2007 (UTC)

Edit warning re Drug[edit]

I hope you don't mind, but I downgraded the warning you gave to the user following the edit to Drug. It was a first-time offence, so warning #3 I felt was a bit harsh. It may well have been a good faith edit. I suppose only time will tell with regards to this user. StephenBuxton 12:26, 2 November 2007 (UTC)

At first I was puzzled because I've never given the test 3 warning to anyone recently - I think you are slightly mistaken. It was not "warning #3". It was {{template:blatantvandal}}, if you are talking about User:208.108.100.241. The template is for an initial warning, as it begins with "Welcome to Wikipedia". --BorgQueen 17:11, 2 November 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Virusti keyboard.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Virusti keyboard.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Ricky81682 (talk) 06:15, 12 November 2007 (UTC)

Well, you've definitely inspired me! I think it makes sense so I gave it a try and further condensed some of the referencing - it looks much cleaner. So, thanks again for the inspiration. Hope you enjoyed your cookie (I swear, it was fat-free). --Midnightdreary 18:15, 14 November 2007 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use Image:Suzukiseijun.jpg[edit]

Replaceable fair use

Thanks for uploading Image:Suzukiseijun.jpg. I noticed the 'image' page specifies that the image is being used under fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first fair use criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed image could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this image is not replaceable, please:

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

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace the fair use image by finding a freely licensed image of its subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or a similar) image under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our fair use criteria. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, fair use images which could be replaced by free-licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if not used in an article), per our Fair Use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. —Remember the dot (talk) 19:35, 17 November 2007 (UTC)

Sorry, I am not anymore in Indonesia, and I though my picture was fine. It was not...

Ok, it was just a short paragraph so I didn't think it was, but I rephrased it anyway. Thanks, bot. --BorgQueen (talk) 06:04, 20 November 2007 (UTC)
