Monarchy of Barbados[edit]

Hi there! I've been seeing your good work on the Monarchy of Barbados page. I'm going to put the 'monarchs of Barbados' navbox into the Template namespace, so that it's available for use on other pages if anyone wants to. I hope that's okay with you? Also, I took the liberty of fixing your 'to start a new thread' link, just above. Cheers! roux ] [x] was prince of canada 05:08, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

Call the Planet[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on Call the Planet, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article seems to be blatant advertising that only promotes a company, product, group, service or person and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become an encyclopedia article. Please read the general criteria for speedy deletion, particularly item 11, as well as the guidelines on spam.

If you can indicate why the subject of this article is not blatant advertising, you may contest the tagging. To do this, please add {{hangon}} on the top of Call the Planet and leave a note on the article's talk page explaining your position. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would help make it encyclopedic, as well as adding any citations from independent reliable sources to ensure that the article will be verifiable. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. Calltech (talk) 10:25, 31 October 2008 (UTC)

Recent Edits[edit]

Hi

At the risk of falling fould of WP:DTTR, this is a message to let you know that I've reverted a wholesale set of changes you made yesterday. Adding external links is generally frowned upon and you should really only be adding external links used in the preparation of an article i.e. Wikipedia is not a repository for external links. You also made a series of edits that were not supported by the source you provided and I note that I'm not the only person to have reverted those changes. Please think carefully about your edits and avoid circular redirects. Justin talk 11:08, 19 November 2008 (UTC)

Yes my link does support that but I have no problem with these people beating their ego to put the Queen in everything for the sake of making articles incorrect. For one thing the link I added says that a Crown colony is the first 2 of the evolution of a colony. Before steps 3 and 4 where a Crown Colony becomes a self governing colony. Did you really read the source??? see Stages of colonial evolution 1 & 2 are Crown Colony status. 3 can be (weakly) and 4 is a Self Governing colony. What source do you- have that says it is not???? CaribDigita (talk) 22:21, 19 November 2008 (UTC)

Yes I read the source and that wasn't what the source said, the disambiguation was not supported by it. You'd also malformed the references anyway. I would also suggest that you refrain from making personal attacks against people and make assumptions about their agenda. Really it reveals more about your own POV agenda than anything else. Again I point out that I'm not the only person to make this point with you and I had the courtesy to let you know. It might be nice if you returned the favour. Justin talk 22:29, 19 November 2008 (UTC)
I did not do a personal attack. I merely asked if you read what I had actually placed? Plus I have conversated about this (at great lengths) on the British Overseas Territories discussion page where even another person chimed in and said they too knew that a "Crown Colony" is something completely different... Also there *is* some sort of agenda on here that I've seen over the months to put the Queen on every page of a country even on things she does not really have a interest. E.g. adding Royal Anthem to every Commonwealth Realm. Which is not- true. God Save the Queen holds status in the U.K. But it does not in every realm. CaribDigita (talk) 22:36, 19 November 2008 (UTC)
<sarcasm>Ah you got me, its a conspiracy to infiltrate the Queen into wikipedia, curses foiled again</sarcasm off>. No agenda whatsoever, please don't impugn my motives - that is a personal attack. Justin talk 09:15, 20 November 2008 (UTC)

Request for help, please[edit]

Greetings CaribDigita ,

Nice to meet you.

Could you kindly help me translate this article into the unique and brilliant Bajan language? Please.


The "True Jesus Church" is an independent church that was established in Beijing, China in 1917. Today, there are approximately 2.5 million members in forty eight countries and six continents. The church belongs to the Pentecostal group of Christianity that emerged during the early twentieth century. They aim to preach the gospel to all nations before the Second Coming of Jesus. The ten main beliefs of the church are:

  1. Holy Spirit
  2. Baptism
  3. Feet Washing
  4. Holy Communion
  5. Sabbath Day
  6. Jesus Christ
  7. The Bible
  8. Salvation
  9. The church
  10. Final Judgement

Your help would be very Gratefully Appreciated, Thankyou very much. --Jose77 (talk) 03:07, 20 November 2008 (UTC)


LOL. I may not be the best- person for this because my family is from many different islands so my lingo could be a kind of a corruption of them all. It also depends how deep you'd want to go. Every Bajan is different and usually Barbadian-English hovers in and out of what would be considered British standard English. The best analogy I can think of would be someone speaking Spanglish. Today, all that really remains is just a dialect because much of it has become archaic.... Such as "Doin dixie" for dancing or "jin-jin" for the Queen. Today it is just really a "pepper-ing" of the English language if you will. But if you really want to take it to an extreme- it could be...

De "true Jesus Church" is ah independent church dah was establish in Beijing, China in 1917. Today day- are approximately 2.5 million members in forty eight countries and 'pun six continents. De church does belong tuh de Pentecostal group of Christianity dat emerged during de early twentieff century. Day mainly aim tuh preach de gospel tuh all nations before de Second Coming of Jesus. de ten main beliefs of de church are:

  6. Jesus Christ
  7. De Bible
  8. Salvation
  9. De church
  10. Final Judgement

It is simple really. But it is weird my brain does certain things in Bajan automatically that I can't always put into words how or why it is doing it.... TH rounds off as "ff" or "D" (Like Teef for "Theeth" or Dah for "That"). There's also a tendency in Bajan to use "on" or "'pun" when referring to something big, so "pun six continents" sounds to me more like the more correct form. Depending on what you're going to do with that information it may- serve your purpose better to just use standard English. Some older Bajans still frown on using the dialect if your talking about something serious. CaribDigita (talk) 06:25, 20 November 2008 (UTC)

  • You know it is funny. I called them last spring because their research of Bajan seemed really outdated and there were some inaccuracies. They say they went by research done during like the 1980's I believe. They told me I could try reaching the person that did the research but they now live in Hawaii which is quite a few time zones different from me, so I never actually ended up pursuing it. Anyway one thing they mix up is there's Barbadian English and there's the Bajan dialect. Bajan dialect is the one that survives today and Bajan is pretty much more streamlined then Barbadian English. It is sort of grey where Barbadian English ends and Bajan begins however they work differently. Barbadian English actually have different words for example aches in the body were commonly called a form of Cold. Meanwhile today dependent on where it is in the body it'll be more streamlined. Bajan is more like the Bermudian accent of Bahamian accent it is a very slight lilt to the voice but it is spoken very quickly which is what gives it difficulty for non-speakers.

Contrary to what Ethnologue Barbadians follow British spelling. E.g. Organisation as opposed to Organization. (Example: "The CERO- Central Emergency Relief Organisation of Barbados" -- http://cero.gov.bb/ ). They use Colour as opposed to Color. or Cheque as opposed to Check. One thing though unique is due to the fact that Barbados works with both US and UK they tend not to use either periods or commas in their numbers. e.g. 1,000 as in the US, would be just "1 000" in Barbados which also is unlike the UK where it would be 1.000

Anywho see for yourself. On the Voice of Barbados they have a character they call "Market Vendor" which is a daily comedy skit. It is spoken in Bajan Dialect.

Also feel free to see the online version of the news which may have some interviews where you may catch the Bajan dialect.

Around Minute 4 you can hear the Minister in Parliament starting to drift into Bajan. P.S. the ads are the best display of Bajan Dialect.

Thankyou very much[edit]

Gnu-color-reiss-head.jpg
THANKYOU SO MUCH CaribDigita for your Excellent Translation effort!
I am very very Grateful.
May God Bless You!
For your information, the Bajan language is internationally recognized and its ISO Code is bjs. You are therefore welcome to make the spelling as close to the actual Bajan pronounciation as much as possible.

Category renaming[edit]

Hi, I just saw the CFD for Category:Caribbean Community (organization), which had folks puzzled until it was discovered that you had emptied that category and moved the contents to the new category you created, Category:Caribbean Community (organisation). In this case, no real harm was done, but in the future if you want to change the name of a catgeory, please be sure to follow the rules and take your proposal to CFD rather than implementing it unilaterally. (In many cases, simple changes can be dealt with at Speedy Renaming.) Best, Cgingold (talk) 03:41, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

Parish Category renaming[edit]

  • Reading Parishes of Barbados will show that "The country of Barbados is currently subdivided into administrative sub-regions known as parishes." These articles are about civil parishes -- not a church parishes nor parish churches. But if you think that there is a better word that "civil" let us know.
  • Likewise Montserrat is indeed "divided into three parishes" they are "administrative parishes" Your outside link is for Civil Parishes in Britain. These islands use the name parish but need not use the same system. --Carlaude (talk) 16:22, 17 December 2008 (UTC)
  • According to the vote, the current vote is an attempt to rename from "Cat:Parishes of Barbados" into "Cat:Civil Parishes of Barbados" or the like. Civil Parishes was a system administered by the Parish Church/Vestry system. See Oxford dictionary here.

Not that I doubt the information, but from reading it sounds that you got this information somewhere, perhaps a newspaper. You would help the article even more if you shared this source and put a reference to the statement. Thanks. Tomeasy T C 07:59, 16 January 2009 (UTC)

Brighton now part of Boston was part of Middlesex County, Massachusetts[edit]

Just so you know Brighton now part of Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts was part of Middlesex County, Massachusetts, click on the Brighton link to see the history. Best Regards DavidBlackwell (talk) 23:45, 30 January 2009 (UTC)

Hi, was this an FYI or did I ask this somewhere? Refresh my memory a little. CaribDigita (talk) 00:15, 31 January 2009 (UTC)

On October 2, 2008 you made an unnecessary revert in the Middlesex County, Massachusetts page saying "But umm. Boston is Suffolk County" which is not exactly correct. Suffolk county includes the city of Chelsea and Boston now, but before 1793 it included all the towns in Norfolk county. Also Brighton which is now part of Boston and Suffolk county was part of Middlesex county before Boston annexed it in the mid 1800s. Dorchester, Roxbury, West Roxbury, and Hyde Park were once independent towns in Norfolk county which were annexed to Boston and became part of Suffolk county again. I am uncertain how geographic catagories work, but southern Middlesex county and most of Norfolk county are parts of the Greater Boston metropolitan area. Just a minor quible. Best Regards DavidBlackwell (talk) 00:25, 4 February 2009 (UTC)

Ok, I see what you are referring to now. Ok you're talking about this revision [1] correct? Regarding my removal of Category "Category:Geography of Boston, Massachusetts" from Middlesex county's article. Ok. My reason for that action is I believe it to be a mistake. As it stands today Middlesex county is not actually a part of the capital-city of Boston. For one major reason Suffolk County has its own district court that is separate of the Middlesex County court system. (Which mind you, Brighton has a branch of the Suffolk County court on Chestnut Hill Ave too.) The Middlesex article states that the lead courts for Middlesex county is in Woburn and Cambridge that wouldn't be true for Brighton or the rest of Suffolk county today.

Also there is another point you stated which is important. You stated "but southern Middlesex county and most of Norfolk county are parts of the Greater Boston metropolitan area." True, I agree they can be considered a part of the "Greater Boston metropolitan area" but it is important not to state they are officially a part of Boston city proper though. "Greater Boston" is a colloquial term that we have locally that means many different things to different people. For example some people say "Greater Boston" is everything inside then route 128-belt. While others will claim it follows the 617 area code. Further yet, others will say it means the entire portion of Eastern Massachusetts. "Greater Boston" is an undefined term or area but Boston city isn't. Claiming Middlesex county is a part of Boston I think is more confusing and would confuse more than it helps. It would be just like if you were to add the catagory Middlesex Country to the bottom of the Brighton article today. I think you are on to something though and it sounds like a good idea to add to the article that Brighton switched from Middlesex county. Somerville might have undergone the same thing since it was once a part of Charlestown. CaribDigita (talk) 00:32, 5 February 2009 (UTC)

Category:Tributaries of the Boston Harbor[edit]

Hello CaribDigita, and thanks for creating Category:Tributaries of the Boston Harbor. I wonder about two things, though. First, is "tributary" appropriate for use with harbors? I'm familiar with its use for rivers but not for harbors. Second, would it be better to remove "the"? The usual expressions being "Boston Harbor" but "the Charles River." You might consider something like "Category:Rivers emptying into Boston Harbor." There might be better names too. If you create a new category before putting too many articles in the existing one, it's not too hard to do. In any case, it's probably good to have a category for these rivers, so thanks again. Fg2 (talk) 01:46, 20 June 2009 (UTC)

  • Really good point. Thanks for alerting me early too! Haha :-)
I'm sure we can brainstorm this out. The suggestion "Cat:Rivers emptying into Boston Harbor" sounds good??? I don't think I've ever heard of the Boston Harbor called a basin or watershed??? (hence I had overlooked that esp. since it opens to the wider Massachusetts Bay.) That would be original research anyway.
I had tried to think of other river areas that may have this same type of situation but the only thing I could think of were Mississippi River and Category:Great Lakes as places where many rivers meet at a larger place (Esp. where that place would likely have a Category to see its current structure on Wikipedia.) I'm going to hold off on adding anything further 'til I hear back from you. CaribDigita (talk) 02:03, 20 June 2009 (UTC)
Hmm, I'm out of ideas. You might find some support at one of the projects listed under Wikipedia:WikiProject Council/Directory/Geographical#Bodies of water. Participants in these projects might have great ideas for categorization schemes. I hope that helps! Best regards, Fg2 (talk) 05:42, 20 June 2009 (UTC)

Furnace Brook Parkway[edit]

I noticed your addition to Alewife Brook Parkway. I started to do some research on the "brook" parkway on the opposite side of Boston, Furnace Brook Parkway about a month ago, but I haven't been able to get anything together yet. I have a collection of eleven links to probable references in storage, here is an example of how I have them:

1909 speed increased to 20mph http://books.google.com/books?id=q9YqAAAAMAAJ&pg=PA117&dq=%22Furnace+Brook+Parkway%22&lr=

One of the things I didn't find much on yet is the origin of the name, which was the brook of course but also the old furnace in West Quincy. If you want to go ahead and do a history section for the Furnace Brook Parkway, please respond here and I will pass the other ten refs on to you. Sswonk (talk) 18:01, 2 August 2009 (UTC)

Yikes, I really know nothing about Furnace Brook Parkway unfortunately. I've heard it on local news/traffic updates but, I know nothing about it physically though. On the other hand I know the Alewife Brook Parkway like the back of my hand. CaribDigita (talk) 21:31, 2 August 2009 (UTC)
OK, I am in Quincy so I can take photos too, I just thought I would run it by you. I'll find time to organize and add the history at some point. Thanks – Sswonk (talk) 23:54, 2 August 2009 (UTC)
I fell that I wouldn't know what to say. In what prose etc. since I'm not sure I've even traveled down that road to describe it. What is Furnace Brook Pkwy. near? Is it close to the Bayside Expo Ctr? CaribDigita (talk) 01:11, 3 August 2009 (UTC)
No, it goes essentially through the middle of Quincy from the old quarries at the eastern edge of the Blue Hills Reservation to the bay. It is exit 8 off of I-93. It is two lane and goes through beautiful areas usually tree-lined and has several gentle curves following the course of the brook. It goes through the northern side of Quincy Center but you don't see much commercialization there, then it continues to the water where it meets Quincy Shore Drive at the mouth of Blacks Creek. Try 42°14′38.37″N 71°1′29.93″W / 42.2439917°N 71.0249806°W / 42.2439917; -71.0249806 , if you have Google Earth that is a good application to use to get a sense of it. The road near to Bayside you are thinking of is probably Morrissey Boulevard which parallels 93 or possibly Columbia Road, which goes through Dorchester to Franklin Park.

Hi there. Quick question for you. I noticed you'd contributed to the Eugene Melnyk article, and was wondering if you knew which user added the line about Melnyk being "a benefactor of Tourette Syndrome Foundation of Canada". This is a mystery that I'd like to solve, and any information would help. Thanks so much.

Truphone[edit]

I removed the category to Android software from this article because I don't see how it fits..

It should actually be in the article too. It is on the Android. [2] CaribDigita (talk) 05:02, 1 November 2009 (UTC)

I'm not disputing that it can be used, it's just a superfluous external link (since there is no mention of it in the article) -- ErnestVoice (User) (Talk) 22:47, 2 November 2009 (UTC)
Well Category. Not exactly "link". I don't believe I added any actual links in that article. I had only a category for that article to show up in the Android software category(page history) but, I do understand your point. CaribDigita (talk) 23:12, 2 November 2009 (UTC)

Barbados[edit]

Great work on the Barbados-China relations article! I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. Just wondering, have you been able to find a locator map for the two countries? Because right now that image link is broken. Also, I have written a "language" section under "Demographics" in the Barbados article, and would like you to proofread it to check for factual or grammatical errors. Best wishes, -- Colipon+(Talk) 12:09, 15 November 2009 (UTC)

Usually, someone has to create the locater map. I'm taking one semester off from school so I don't have access to the programme Photoshop on campus. But generally, someone creates them. WP: has a blank one somewhere and they do a colour fill on the countries involved one in orange and one in green to make it match the key. The demographics section looks good. I think it would good to note though Bajan, Spanish, and Franch are all not officially recognised. (What I mean say only "Standard English" is recognised officially by the government...) CaribDigita (talk) 18:23, 15 November 2009 (UTC)
Also, are you sure Hu Jintao visited Barbados in February? I think it was Hui Liangyu... Colipon+(Talk) 12:25, 15 November 2009 (UTC)
Wow. I think you may be correct.[3] I may have had Hu Jintao on the mind for some reason. CaribDigita (talk) 18:22, 15 November 2009 (UTC)

I've made both changes, the first one per your request, and the second one I replaced Hu Jintao with Hui Liangyu. In any case, I think the Barbados article still needs work. For example, the "health care" section is terribly underdeveloped, but is something that is subject to significant debate on the island. In addition, the Lede is not all that reflective of the article's contents, and doesn't even mention that it is a popular tourist destination. Colipon+(Talk) 20:49, 15 November 2009 (UTC)

Old Cambridge Police HQ[edit]

File:Frmr Camb Police Bldg.jpg Is this building still standing? WhisperToMe (talk) 19:52, 30 November 2009 (UTC) Yes, it is still standing... Oddly enough it still has the Police PD sign on it too actually. I just saw it last week but it was too late in the evening to get a good decent photo. CaribDigita (talk) 20:12, 30 November 2009 (UTC)

  • In that case, the image above should be deleted. You cannot upload a non-free photo if it is possible to take a free equivalent. In this case it is possible to take a free photo of the police HQ, so you should upload your own photo of the old police HQ; this copyrighted photo will be deleted. WhisperToMe (talk) 20:25, 30 November 2009 (UTC)

That's fair. I will try to get one tomorrow if I can before the sun goes down and replace the one there. CaribDigita (talk) 05:20, 1 December 2009 (UTC)

Regarding deletion of File:Frmr Camb Police Bldg.jpg[edit]

Hi, CaribDigita I've noticed that you have nominated this image, which you yourself have uploaded, for deletion. I just want to let you know: You needn't have done that; there is a faster way. Just add {{db-author}} to the top of the image page.

Fleet Command (talk) 22:18, 4 December 2009 (UTC)

Ohh, thanks! I'm still kind of new to the Wikicommons side of things so that is very helpful in terms of setting me in the right direction for future reference. Thanks again!
P.S. how do I nominate the new files I uploaded for a slight rename? I noticed that I forgot the word "police" in their names. *smirk* CaribDigita (talk) 22:21, 4 December 2009 (UTC)

Wikicommons? The image that I'm talking about is hosted on Wikipedia not Wikimedia Commons. The tip that I just gave you about adding {{db-author}} works only on Wikipedia, OK? For deletion of things on Commons, refer to its help page. So, why don't you go to File:Frmr Camb Police Bldg.jpg right now and add a {{db-author}} to it? Fleet Command (talk) 23:39, 4 December 2009 (UTC)
Yes you're right.... I was working quickly. The new ones I uploaded are now on commons. The old (non-commercially restrictive one) as you said is on WP. CaribDigita (talk) 00:21, 5 December 2009 (UTC)

RFC at my talk page[edit]

In an effort to create a navbox for urban parkways in the Boston metro area, I have come to the realization that what is really needed is something that ties together the entire system first envisioned by Charles Eliot in the late nineteenth century. I feel that this should be a cooperative effort, probably created as a subproject of WP:MASS. However, initially I am seeking comments and/or assistance from several editors that have contributed in various ways to elements of the scope of such a project. This note is being posted to the user pages of Beland, CaribDigita, Denimadept, EraserGirl, Grk1011, Hertz1888, Jameslwoodward, Markles, NE2, Polaron and Swampyank. I apologize in advance to anyone who wishes to comment that I have left off of the list of users, as I may have unintentionally forgotten them and others. Please feel free to comment on my talk page under the heading I have created, linked here. Thanks – Sswonk (talk) 05:53, 8 December 2009 (UTC)

Barbados–Germany relations[edit]

Hi CaribDigita, I wonder if it makes sense to include the early german history in the caribbean into the article with a fellow named Ambrosius Ehinger, who became conquistador and the first gouvernor of Little-Venice in late 1529.

Same as I think it could be in there that the german Kriegsmarine blocked off Barbados' harbour with their U-boats in WWII. U-514 (Auffermann) fired torpedoes at the canadian ship Cornwallis and sank it in Bridgetown harbour. What do you think? The latter is a part of our history I don't like at all, but it still is our history. Regards Joerg the BajanZindy (talk) 17:31, 9 December 2009 (UTC)

Yeah I think it would be okay. Does it apply to Barbados specifically? I ask that because although the Caribbean works and cooperates together, anything I put in a regional context as part of the relations seems to be deleted by other Wikipedians. E.g. when I created an article about Chile and all their investments they've sunk down in Barbados, and about how they court Barbados for votes and stuff at all kinds of different organizations someone always nominates the article for deletion.
I have a next question for you to. There's a legend in Barbados about the Parliament in Barbados voting on a declaration of war in 1939 and it being the first British colony to do so. (e.g. Caribbean.com has part of this in their Barbados profile. [4] ) The legend goes further though that Hitler intercepted a cable from Barbados (to Britain) about that infamous line to Winston Churchill about: "Don't worry Little England is with you" and it supposedly infuriating Hitler. Then supposedly Hitler was going to offer Barbados the fellow British colony of Tobago if it would agree to stay out of the war? Do you know of any specific places in Germany that has kept Hitler/Nazi phone transmission records? I know the Nazi's destroyed most everything but I'm beginning to wonder if this legend isn't beginning to take on some feet. I've always wanted to try confirming this legend, or compiling evidence to show that it couldn't have happen. CaribDigita (talk) 18:58, 9 December 2009 (UTC)
Well, this legend sounds too odd for me, although nothin' really can surprise me no more. We got a german version of the National Archives here. It's called the Bundesarchiv (Federal Archives). They should know. If not, I'd suggest the National Archives in London (not the Royal Archives). If they don't know, it's another myth.
Regarding my suggestion to the History section of the Barbados–Germany relations article, I'd have be keep the first one from 1529 extremely small otherwise somebody fuh sure will knock it out. The U-boat blockade to Barbados is a well known fact and was published in some books. One of these books is named The U-boat war in the Caribbean. Behind the link you'll be able to read a li'l about it. To avoid this article ending up in the deletion log again, we just can try monitoring it together. Joerg the BajanZindy (talk) 21:36, 9 December 2009 (UTC)
Hey CaribDigita, just in case you wonder why I didn't add the above as yet. I still trying to put this into one or two good sentences. Maybe you got an idea. Joerg the BajanZindy (talk) 13:18, 12 December 2009 (UTC)

Bathsheba, Saint Joseph, Barbados[edit]

Good work on the Barbados article! Just a question, is there a reason to place the parish in the article name in the case of Bathsheba? As far as I can tell this has not been applied to any other place names in Barbados. Colipon+(Talk) 12:49, 12 December 2009 (UTC)

They all started-out like that because many place names in Barbados repeat. So it was simpler to have everything follow the same syntax. However some have been moved away... If you look on Google maps you'll see. There are two Cave Hills for example which comes immediately to mind. CaribDigita (talk) 21:12, 12 December 2009 (UTC)
You would not mind a move back to "Bathsheba, Barbados" or "Bathsheba (Barbados)", then? Even the US cities began to move away from the "City, state" format about a year or two ago. Colipon+(Talk) 10:50, 13 December 2009 (UTC)

I should have fly south for the winter....  :-) I hope everything is going well with you? Are you still in the OK area? CaribDigita (talk) 19:46, 11 January 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the photos[edit]

Thanks for the photos of the cattle pass...I was curious as to what the site looked like, considering cattle are a bit scarce in the Boston area today! Swampyank (talk) 00:13, 9 February 2010 (UTC)

 :-) Hehe, not a problem. I saw it about 15 years ago due to a funny story. It is at the side of the tracks but it looked rather run-down at that time. The only way to see that structure now (I believe) would be to either jump down onto the Commuter Rail tracks at Porter Square station, or to walk east from the crossing gate at Sherman Street. Either way you have to be-careful because the trains tear-by traveling about 45 MPH. It is easy for them to sneak up behind you since they don't emit sound on the front-end. (The only way you can hear them in the front is when they blow the horn or it is passing besides you.) CaribDigita (talk) 03:01, 9 February 2010 (UTC)

Boston & Cambridge[edit]

Greetings, CD. May I suggest moving your new paragraph in the Boston article's Geography section to the History section, and merging it with the very similar annexation treatment already there (just below the Haymarket postcard)?

Those NYT articles on the proposed absorption of Cambridge, added earlier to the Cambridge article, are a real find. (I'm glad the proposals never came to fruition.) If you wouldn't mind, though, I would like to do a little rewording of the text.

It looks as though you were right about reporting the abandonment of the Watertown Branch some time ago. Hard to see how it is ever going to see activity again except as a rail trail. Cheers, Hertz1888 (talk) 07:10, 22 August 2010 (UTC)

  • Hi there Hertz, good to hear from you again. That would be fine. You should know me by now, anything I place is fair game for manipulation. I wont take offence. I promise. :-) I can surely move the Boston Geography part to history... In regards to the Cambridge annexation topic, it sounds like it was the officials of Cambridge alone which put the breaks on it. If I read between-the-lines correctly, it seems like Boston folks may have been in favour(?) I found a log of the agenda at Mass. General Court (statehouse) but I have to read through so I don't just sum-up an entire topic on a single one sentence argument in that long document. It names several Cambridge and Boston residents (petitioners) throughout either in-favour/opposed-of annexation.
RE: the Watertown Branch, I called the Cambridge Dept. of Community development and told them I've been contributing recently to the WP: article and to please look it over. I spoke with someone there who told me some interesting things about plans for that trail. Just recently now I see a huge housing development going up on New Street behind the Fresh Pond mall. I asked if it would be okay to include it in the article and they said fine but I haven't found actual references for that info yet so I haven't. Perhaps if I see you at one of the WP: meet-ups I'll fill you in, but I'm sort of hesitant about posting it so publicly just yet. I've been taking part in discussions on the website www.archboston.org, there's some real interesting folks on there. Some real good ole Bostonians on there. The topic of Annexation came up on there so I've started researching it to find out what is fact and what is fiction. and came across that Cambridge article in the NYT. I despise how they used like half of the article basically trashing Cambridge and saying Boston would be practically the saving grace of Cambridge. lol
Here's another interesting tid-bit I found. Perhaps Cambridge could retake some of 'olde' West Cambridge? The Petition Of The Mayor Of Cambridge For Annexation Of A Part Of Belmont, Barnes and Nobel. I wonder though, how much of Belmont could comfortably be transferred to Cambridge without taking actual town assets? For example, Belmont High School is pretty close to the border. Are their students okay with commuting all the way to CRLS? :-) CaribDigita (talk) 08:15, 22 August 2010 (UTC)

LOL. I know just the commercial you're talking about. It has the guy with the deep blue eyes, and then the woman that says she loves spending time with her family and then she looks around like she realise what she has admitted to saying.  :-) The commercial that always gets me-- is the one for the Solar Hotwater heaters... Here's that commercial LOL total Bajan expansionary vernacular. CaribDigita (talk) 01:23, 18 December 2010 (UTC)
Hey CaribDigita,
take a look at my talk page section Boo Boo edit, please. I hope I reacted correctly. To finish the li'l argument off I just removed the Boo Boo man from the Boo Boo disamb page again.

Hi, I just read it but I'm not entirely following it. Are your comments listed elsewhere??? I may end up learning something new I actually am unaware of the rules regarding a disambig. page. CaribDigita (talk) 23:54, 22 December 2010 (UTC)
Hey man, this User (Trista, so it should be a she) got some real bewzin from me. I really don't understand why on earth Boo Boo Man doesn't belong in the Boo Boo disamb page as both means the same and Lord Invader made a famous calypso about it. Trista's comments are on my talk page and my comments are on her's. I wrote her this morning to leave me alone. Maybe there're rules to follow, but I doubt there's a rule forbidding to list names with the same spelling and meaning to be listed in a disamb page, because that would make them pages sense- and useless. Trista sounds like some never failing law and order type of person. Really upsetting. Well, it past 2:30am here, so I gine go sleep.

Looking for Wikipedia Ambassadors[edit]

Hi! I'm leaving you this message because you are listed as a Wikipedian associated with Harvard. The Wikipedia Ambassador Program is currently looking for Campus Ambassadors to help with Wikipedia assignments at schools in Boston and Cambridge (including Harvard), which will be participating in the Public Policy Initiative for the Spring 2011 semester. The role of Campus Ambassadors will be to provide face-to-face training and support for students on Wikipedia-related skills (how to edit articles, how to add references, etc.). This includes doing in-class presentations, running workshops and labs, possibly holding office hours, and in general providing in-person mentorship for students.

Prior Wikipedia skills are not required for the role, as training will be provided for all Campus Ambassadors (although, of course, being an experienced editor is a plus).

If you live near Boston and you are interested in being a Wikipedia Campus Ambassador, or know someone else from the area who might be, please email me or leave a message on my talk page.

If you're an experienced and active Wikipedian, you might be interested alternatively in becoming an Online Ambassador. The role of Online Ambassadors is to serve as mentors for students; it doesn't require any in-person outreach. Take a look at the Online Ambassador guidelines; the "mentorship process" describes roughly what will be expected of mentors in the coming term. If that's something you want to do, please apply!

You can find instructions for applying at WP:ONLINE. The main things we're looking for in Online Ambassadors are friendliness, regular activity (since mentorship is a commitment that spans several months), and the ability to give detailed, substantive feedback on articles (both short new articles, and longer, more mature ones).

RIP Dame Olga Lopes-Seale![edit]

Hi again,
I'd like you to check out the article about Auntie Olga. This article's still a stub and I sure you and me can add some data. BTW: I sent you an email some weeks ago regarding your images at Commons. You might wanna take a look.
Joerg, the Flag of Barbados.svg BajanZindy (talk) 21:16, 4 February 2011 (UTC)

Hi there. I don't know much about her.

  • I just saw your email. Yikes, I wouldn't know how to start. I took over 1000 photos that I sorted them into folders. By geography and thing. The trip to B'dos happen so quick. JetBlue (or as the Bajans now calling it) BlueJet, had a fall sale and I had the chance to go but I had to book within 24 hours. So that didn't leave me any time to get a hold of a good camera or anything. I was in BIM so I could either take no photos at all or take ones with that little camera phone I had. lol Did you used to listen to Dame Olga? CaribDigita (talk) 17:25, 6 February 2011 (UTC)
Hi Joel, I'm now at a dial up line as my DSL is down since Sunday afternoon and Deutsche Telekom seems to have some real problem fixing it. It takes now ages for a page to load properly.
I never had a chance to listen to Auntie Olga, but through the papers I heard about her since Dec 1994. Regarding them pics, they're perfect, I just changed to contrast and that made them even more perfect. Sometimes a little color change, like with the satellite image, that was all, hope you liked the change. If this DSL problem takes longer, I will have to rely on the phone again.

Speedy deletion nomination of The Silvertones of Barbados[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on The Silvertones of Barbados requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a band or musician, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, contest the deletion by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion," which appears inside of the speedy deletion ({{db-...}}) tag (if no such tag exists, the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate). Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page 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 page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. Epeefleche (talk) 18:47, 31 May 2011 (UTC)

Caribbean Airlines Flight 523[edit]

Hey CaribDigita!
Long time no hear. Weather wet'n'cold here. I worked a little on the Caribbean Airlines article and the article of the crashlanded Caribbean Airlines Flight BW523. The latter was nominated already once for deletion, but ended as speedy keep. Check out this article on page 22 in the Crop Over Edition of the Barbados Today online paper. I'm sure this article could be extended, same as the relevant section in the Caribbean Airlines article. Joerg, the Flag of Barbados.svg BajanZindy (talk) 01:09, 31 July 2011 (UTC)

Warning[edit]

CaribDigita, the edit you made to my comments here: [5] is unacceptable. This is the second time you have edited my comments on a talkpage. Next time you do it I will report you. Let me spell it out for you: since I signed those comments, that implies that anything written there was written by me, therefore you may not change it. If you disagree with what I have said, reply to it, but you can't simply change my words. --ಠ_ಠ node.ue ಠ_ಠ (talk) 19:23, 15 September 2011 (UTC)

It was not intentionally. I clicked on "History" and show the changes you made and I may have accidentally hit edit still within that mode without going back to the current version and then adding my comment. I also may not have practised due care in making sure I was only tweaking my part. Anyway I transcribed the "Bajan" example you gave. CaribDigita (talk) 20:44, 15 September 2011 (UTC)

Greetings, Regarding the Barbadian American article, you added a citation (ref name="US-stateDep") which does not have a host cite in the added consulate section (which was a great addition, btw).

Montserrat[edit]

Hello CaribDijita, I don't know how well you know the island of Montserrat, or whether you have access to any good maps of Montserrat, but in that article I started the process of identifying which settlements are in the "exclusion zone" (and thus abandoned) and which are in the northern part of the island and still inhabited. I only had a good map of the northern part. If you know Montserrat well, or have access to good maps, perhaps you could help with that? Or maybe you know someone who could help? Good wishes, Invertzoo (talk) 18:21, 29 February 2012 (UTC)

A tag has been placed on S. M. Jaleel and Company, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G11 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page seems to be unambiguous advertising which only promotes a company, product, group, service or person and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become encyclopedic. Please read the guidelines on spam and Wikipedia:FAQ/Business for more information.

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.

Proposed deletion of Barbados on the Water Festival[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Barbados on the Water Festival has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Minor festival, one of many at Toronto's Harbourfront Centre. Appears to have stopped after last being held in 2010.

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

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

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

Speedy deletion nomination of Atlantik (band)[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Atlantik (band) requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person, organization (band, club, company, etc.), web content or organised event, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, 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 from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, you can place a request here. Tonelada (talk) 11:49, 7 June 2013 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Sipdroid[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Sipdroid has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

notability not demonstrated

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

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

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

TemplateData is here[edit]

Hey CaribDigita

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.

Disambiguation link notification for December 14[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Rotaries in Massachusetts, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Massachusetts Avenue (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Wikimania 2012 portrait 102 by ragesoss, 2012-07-13.JPG

As you may have already heard, the Wikipedia community lost an invaluable member of the community last month. Adrianne Wadewitz was a feminist scholar of 18th-Century British literature, and a prolific editor of the site. As part of a worldwide series of tributes, New England Wikimedians, in conjunction with local institutions of higher learning, have created three edit-a-thons that will be occurring in May and June. The events are as follows:

Grantley Adams International Airport[edit]

Constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, but your recent edits, such as those to Grantley Adams International Airport, appear to be intentional disruptions designed to illustrate a point. Edits designed for the deliberate purpose of drawing opposition, including making edits you do not agree with or enforcing a rule in a generally unpopular way, are highly disruptive and can lead to a block or ban. If you feel that a policy is problematic, the policy's talk page is the proper place to raise your concerns. If you simply disagree with someone's actions in an article, discuss it on the article talk page or, if direct discussion fails, through dispute resolution. If consensus strongly disagrees with you even after you have made proper efforts, then respect the consensus, rather than trying to sway it with disruptive tactics. Thank you. please read WP:ELMINOFFICIAL. further addition is violation of this policy and may be considered vandalism. LibStar (talk) 00:00, 29 May 2014 (UTC)

  • Dear Libstar your continual desecration of references on the GAIA article is not warranted and is inconsistent with what Wikipedia is about. This article has taken the collaboration of many editors over the years since I've not only created but contributed to this article in kind. It is also not true that references can only be in an article. Take the following airports for example:

CaribDigita (talk) 00:07, 29 May 2014 (UTC)

those airport articles do not include a link to generic advice about entry requirements to the USA, its facebook or google + nor the civil aviation department overseeing the airport. I have now removed these from the Grantley Adams article. but you have removed the photo link so that is ok. LibStar (talk) 01:22, 29 May 2014 (UTC)
