Disambiguation link notification[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited Mexican Federal Highway 49, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Chihuahua (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

Hi, Bumm13, you are graciously extended an invitation to join the International Highways WikiProject and its regional taskforces! The project is an evolving and expanding group of editors who are dedicated to creating, revising, and expanding articles, lists, categories, anything related to highways in the world. This includes supporting existing regional road project and fostering the development of new international highway wikiprojects. We have recently created five regional task forces focused on Europe, Asia, Africa, Oceania and Latin America. In addition, there are specific subprojects devoted to Canada, India, the UK, and the US. As you have shown an interest in Mexican Federal Highway 107 we thought you might like to take an interest in this growing WikiProject.

To improve road and highway articles, here are guidelines for B-Class criteria. Please add any GA-, A- or FA-class articles to the international roads portal. Also, please help out by inviting new or unfamiliar editors with the Wikipedia:WikiProject Highways/New articles/Invite template.

We look forward to welcoming you to the project! Imzadi 1979  11:14, 7 February 2012 (UTC)

MSU Interview[edit]

Dear Bumm13,


My name is Jonathan Obar user:Jaobar, I'm a professor in the College of Communication Arts and Sciences at Michigan State University and a Teaching Fellow with the Wikimedia Foundation's Education Program. This semester I've been running a little experiment at MSU, a class where we teach students about becoming Wikipedia administrators. Not a lot is known about your community, and our students (who are fascinated by wiki-culture by the way!) want to learn how you do what you do, and why you do it. A while back I proposed this idea (the class) to the community HERE, were it was met mainly with positive feedback. Anyhow, I'd like my students to speak with a few administrators to get a sense of admin experiences, training, motivations, likes, dislikes, etc. We were wondering if you'd be interested in speaking with one of our students.


So a few things about the interviews:

  • Interviews will last between 15 and 30 minutes.
  • Interviews can be conducted over skype (preferred), IRC or email. (You choose the form of communication based upon your comfort level, time, etc.)
  • All interviews will be completely anonymous, meaning that you (real name and/or pseudonym) will never be identified in any of our materials, unless you give the interviewer permission to do so.
  • All interviews will be completely voluntary. You are under no obligation to say yes to an interview, and can say no and stop or leave the interview at any time.
  • The entire interview process is being overseen by MSU's institutional review board (ethics review). This means that all questions have been approved by the university and all students have been trained how to conduct interviews ethically and properly.


Bottom line is that we really need your help, and would really appreciate the opportunity to speak with you. If interested, please send me an email at obar@msu.edu (to maintain anonymity) and I will add your name to my offline contact list. If you feel comfortable doing so, you can post your name HERE instead.

If you have questions or concerns at any time, feel free to email me at obar@msu.edu. I will be more than happy to speak with you.

Thanks in advance for your help. We have a lot to learn from you.

Sincerely,

Jonathan Obar --Jaobar (talk) 21:13, 8 February 2012 (UTC)

You are invited to this local event![edit]

I thought you might live in Seattle since you attended a past Seattle Wikipedia event.

I would like to invite you to attend a Wikipedia meetup described on Wikipedia:Meetup/seattlewp. This meeting is scheduled for Tuesday 6 March 2012 at 7pm in Café Allegro. Thank you for your attention and I hope to see you there. Blue Rasberry (talk) 00:46, 6 March 2012 (UTC)

Maybe a silly question, but[edit]

I notice you made a lot of the dot maps for towns in Humboldt County, California. Is there a way to get more of them for our unincorporated communities, or is that not the right thing to do? Thank you for answering! Ellin Beltz (talk) 20:02, 11 March 2012 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Santa Fe Springs in LA County map.png[edit]

A tag has been placed on File:Santa Fe Springs in LA County map.png requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the image is an unused redundant copy (all pixels the same or scaled down) of an image in the same file format, which is on Wikipedia (not on Commons), and all inward links have been updated.

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 09:32, 20 July 2012 (UTC)

Nihongo template usage[edit]

Hi there. I've been inactive on the wiki for a while, so I may be going on outdated information here, but isn't having the Japanese title in the lead only for games that were developed in Japan? I was once told it didn't belong in Metroid Prime for that reason. I ask because you added Template:Nihongo to Lemmings (video game), The Lion King (video game), and others a few days ago. Cheers, sesuprime 03:40, 28 November 2012 (UTC)

Hey again. I found the relevant guideline in the second sentence of WP:VG/JP; it states that a game's Japanese title should only be included if that's the title it was originally released with, i.e., released in Japan first. In practice, the Japanese title seems to also be included if the game was developed in Japan, even if it was originally published in English (e.g., Metroid II and Metroid Fusion).

Richard Manitoba / Caribou[edit]

Hi. I'm recruiting for extra comments on a content dispute at Richard Manitoba. Apparently there was some flare up over use of the name Manitoba some years back, and the aggrieved party has been repeatedly and persistently inserting snarky copy into the Handsome Dick article. Since he has also done press interviews, he has refs. As an experienced editor, if you could assist on achieving consensus, much appreciated. Wwwhatsup (talk) 13:35, 9 January 2013 (UTC)

Hey, human here. I'm in the process of listing all your LA County maps for deletion. No offense -- they were better than nothing, and valuable back in 2006 when you uploaded them. But they're all unused now, and we have cleaner versions on Commons. All the best, – Quadell (talk) 12:29, 25 July 2013 (UTC)

The Fabulous Wailers[edit]

The Fabulous Wailers is what the band are often known as. Their own website uses that term: thefabulouswailers.com. And our naming policy indicates we should select natural over disambiguation brackets where possible: WP:NATURAL. The article is clearer, more helpful, less confusing, and follows policy better as The Fabulous Wailers. SilkTork ✔Tea time 01:30, 15 August 2013 (UTC)

Hi, I realize that the name of this particular band is a bit difficult given the inconsistency surrounding which name they've used in the past. I know that the band is often known as "The Fabulous Wailers"; they are also often known as simply "The Wailers". The use of "(rock band)" is necessary if the shorter name is to be used to avoid confusion with Bob Marley's old reggae band. So I'm not trying to simply impose my own standards to article names. :)

I don't really agree though that "the article is clearer, more helpful, less confusing, and follows policy better" with the longer name; we don't make article naming decisions simply to shoehorn them into some random Wikipedia policy; we choose the most appropriate name reflecting common usage (up to a point). Part of the reason for the reversion to the old name was that the user who made that move is relatively inexperienced and did not discuss the matter on the article's talk page (I can see that there is a need to do that, especially now). How about we move discussion there...*right now*? ;) Regards, Bumm13 (talk) 03:20, 15 August 2013 (UTC)

For some people The Wailers (rock band) could refer to either the reggae or the garage rock band, while The Fabulous Wailers clearly identifies who the article is about, and uses the common name which the band themselves currently use to uniquely identify themselves. That is why I feel the The Fabulous Wailers name is "clearer, more helpful, less confusing, and follows policy better". Policy does say to use a natural and common name rather than one employing disambiguation brackets. When using brackets it means that editors have to pipe links and amend templates such as {{findnotice}}. I find the notion that an acceptable move is objected to because the user is inexperienced to be understandable though inappropriate. However, the user does need a warning that they shouldn't be edit warring over the move (I note from the history that they have moved the page twice). If on reflection you still find the The Wailers (rock band) to be preferable, then yes I will open a move discussion. SilkTork ✔Tea time 08:43, 15 August 2013 (UTC)

Cowboys Stadium/AT&T Stadium[edit]

The fan who initially moved AT&T Stadium back to Cowboys Stadium after it had been there a few months reverted your move and then almost immediately an anonymous IP edited the redirect on AT&T Stadium so that it would need administrative action to clear (this is the 3rd time they have done that). Any additional input/help would be much appreciated. I have yet to see any valid Wikipedia reasons why it should stay at "Cowboys Stadium", yet somehow the "discussion" continues. --JonRidinger (talk) 02:13, 24 September 2013 (UTC)

@JonRidinger:: Less than two months went by between the undiscussed move and the initial objection with a revert to "Cowboys Stadium". Reverting to the prior long-term stable name and waiting for a move discussion to occur seems like the ordinary practice, and I see no harm in letting that happen in due course. What's the rush? —BarrelProof (talk) 05:09, 24 September 2013 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Anyway, I just thanked you, Bumm13 on this history page, and I'm curious. I've looked all over my prefs for that (thank) ditty that appears to replace the (undo) in the edit summary. Is that just an admin thing? or is there a script? It's pretty cool! How do I get one? – Paine Ellsworth CLIMAX! 18:58, 13 October 2013 (UTC)

Okay then... thank you for your response! So, when I click the (thank) link, how are you notified? Does it come across in your notifications? – Paine Ellsworth CLIMAX! 20:33, 13 October 2013 (UTC)

Sam Stern[edit]

Hello

I ask here to you this, because you created Stern page a while ago (most of others contributor on this page are IP, so i try to contact you...). I'm contributor on french wiki. I found info on Sam Stern. Look at this. Sam Stern has been hired by Bally Manufacturing in 1969. but i don't know the date he stopped. more, reading seeburg and stern page, Sam Stern should be executive CEO untill 1979 at williams Manufacturing Company ? / create Stern Electronics in 1977 ? / and become seeburg president since 1980 ? !

I can't find anymore info, my native language is french, and it's pretty difficult to go further in research.

PS : i also Added a message on SNK page without answer of anyone!

Are you ablle to help me in any way ?
