Perro de Presa Canario[edit]

You've requested we add the "dog fighting breed" category to this article. Do you provide some sources that support this? Rklawton 12:41, 25 August 2007 (UTC)

While I'm not too keen on the verbiage - perhaps changing the name of the proposed category to something to the effect of "Dog Breeds Historically Used for Fighting" (or something else along those lines) would be more appropriate. As far as the PdPC is concerned, there's no getting around the fact that the historical PdPC was utilized as a fighting dog [1]. Usually, when speaking of the use of the PdPC in arranged fights vis-a-vis the killing of wild dogs, historians tend to couch it in terms of a traditional Spanish interest in blood sports (like cock fighting) and, since the traditional PdPC was considered a valuable working animal, arranged fights between PdPCs are usually described as "honor fights" to distinguish them from British-style to-the-death pit fights between "game bred" dogs. Personally, I'm not sure if/how that makes one version of the pursuit "better" than the other. Dog fighting is disgusting, reprehensible, represents human beings at their worst and, as Mr. Vick is finding out, quite illegal - however, noting a history of arranged fighting in a breed is not necessarily a negative connotation. The irony of the categorization as it regards the PdPC is that, anecdotally anyway, they're assumed to be too large and lacking in stamina & agility to compare to a true "game bred" breed. I can provide cites for this, as their readily available - however, I'm in the middle of frying a bigger fish and Chessy999 should be able find references herself as they're readily available. Frangible 15:55, 25 August 2007 (UTC)

In reply to your comment on my talk page. My knowledge of the breed's history has nothing to do with Wikipedia's requirement that you source facts you wish to add to articles. Rklawton 18:13, 25 August 2007 (UTC)


There is really a difference between breeds of dogs bred and developed for the sport of dog fighting, and dogs used informally for it. That does not make them a Fighting Dog breed such as the TOSA or the APBT. I agree with Frangible that the title of the category should be changed. PresaDog 22:45, 25 August 2007 (UTC)

Maine Coon links[edit]

Please be more careful in deleting links from long-lived articles. Two of the links you removed from the Maine Coon article were indeed spamlinks, but the rest weren't; they have been around for a long time in the article and are references for the breed. As for the link to feline HCM; the Maine Coon is known as the breed where HCM was first discovered and due to that it has become known as a breed where a lot of attention is put into battling the disease. Feline HCM is therefore relevant for the breed, as is mentioned in the text. So.. thanks for cleaning up, but please be careful. Tebokkel 14:49, 6 September 2007 (UTC)

If you're really into cleaning out "spam", please adhere to the guidlines you quote. The spam-blacklist is automatically enforced; there's no need to manually clean up links. It's possible that the links you removed do not comply with your standards for quality, but the [Maine Coon] article has been time-tested, by moderators, editors, breeders and visitors. Holding back on changes would be my advise. Discuss *before* you remove older parts, not after the fact. See the discussion page of Maine Coon for details about the links themselves.

You don't write verbiage, though your grammar is not so good. You are also an okay editor on wiki if supercilious about other people's efforts. Good for you. Horace —Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.39.229.71 (talk) 21:36, 14 October 2007 (UTC)

Venetian ceruse[edit]

"Toronto Blue Jays" is a proper name, so it should be capitalized. "Venetian ceruse" is not a proper name (not a brand). It is a common noun, like "French toast", so it should be in lower case. Jorge Stolfi 03:10, 18 October 2007 (UTC)

  • OK, let me explain it better. Brands and trademarks are commercial names (like "Cheerios", "Toronto Blue Jays", "Federal Express", "South Pacific Railroad"). Brands and trademarks have owners; so a brand normally names the product of one manufacturer (the brand's owner), and cannot be used for the same product made by another manufacturer. For instance, anyone can make and sell cereal shaped like little donuts, but they cannot write on the box "Cheerios" or "cheerios" or "Ajax Cheerios" or "Ajax cheerios" unless they get permission from the owner of the Cheerios brand. OK?
    The owner of a brand always takes pain to write his brands with capitals, so that everybody will be aware that it is a brand (that only he can use), and not a common name (that anyone can use). Moreover, if a reporter writes on a newspaper "the victim had just eaten a bowl of cheerios", the owner of the Cheerios brand can sue the newspaper for using his Cheerios brand with lower case, because that would turn his valuable brand into a worthless common name, and he would lose the gazillion dollars that he could get out of it. OK?
    Now, no one owns the name "Venetian Ceruse" or "venetian ceruse", just as no one owns the name "French Toast" or "French toast". These names are in the dictionary, and (fortunately for us common folk) the authorities will not let someone claim ownership of words or phrases that are in the dictionary. So anyone can make and sell Venetian ceruse or French toast, and write those names on the box, without paying a cent of royalties to anyone and without fear of being sued by some National Cosmetics Corporation. That's because "Venetian ceruse" is not a brand!
    But let's suppose that the authorities lapsed, and allowed some smart guy to register "Venetian Ceruse" as his brand. In that case, a random company cannot sell a product labeled "Venetian Ceruse" or "Ajax Venetian Ceruse", but they can sell "Ajax Venetian ceruse": because "Venetian ceruse" (lowercase) would still not be a brand (since it was already in the dictionary), while "Venetian Ceruse" (capitalized) would be.
    In conclusion: the article should be named "Venetian ceruse" because that is the common name of the stuff, no matter who makes it --- even if someone happened to register it as a brand. Is it clear now?
    All the best, --Jorge Stolfi 00:11, 19 October 2007 (UTC)

Enemy (military)[edit]

A tag has been placed on Enemy (military), requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done for the following reason:

This is a definition. There is already a definition of "enemy" in the wiktionary.

Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not meet very basic Wikipedia criteria may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as an appropriate article, and if you can indicate why the subject of this article is appropriate, you may contest the tagging. To do this, add {{hangon}} on the top of the page 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 confirm its subject's notability under the guidelines.

For guidelines on specific types of articles, you may want to check out our criteria for biographies, for web sites, for bands, or for companies. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. Lex Kitten 12:27, 27 October 2007 (UTC)

I see your point. Although I still think this definition is superflous, as any war article aught to have it's own explaination of the opposing sides. However, to be on the safe side, I suppose a seperate definition could be useful =)
Just a little note on politeness though. The proper way to respon to a db flag is to add the hangon tag, and state your reason on the discussion page. The db tag should not be removed. It's just polite, and means that we can discuss our dispute over the article, instead of getting into an edit war of removing and replacing the db flag. =)
Lex Kitten 12:38, 27 October 2007 (UTC)
I'm sorry if thats what you think I'm doing. I do hang around the newpages, trying to tag articles that aren't helpful to Wikipedia. Barnstars and fame are the furthest things from my mind, as is impressing you. I'm just trying to help out, so Wikipedia runs smoother and we can all benifit. I'm sorry that we had a dispute over this article, but that doesn't mean what I'm doing is wrong. It'd be nice if users like you and I, who aren't vandals or creaters of nonsense, could work together, instead of getting into disputes. Happy editing. Lex Kitten 12:52, 27 October 2007 (UTC)

Better to talk about it while it is a redirect than with a speedy delete template at the top, unless you wish to run the risk that another administrator will delete it. --Philip Baird Shearer —Preceding comment was added at 13:54, 27 October 2007 (UTC)

October 2007[edit]

Please do not remove speedy deletion tags from articles. If you do not believe the article deserves to be deleted, then please do the following:

  1. Place {{hangon}} on the page. Please do not remove any existing speedy deletion tag(s).
  2. Make your case on the article's talk page.

Administrators will look at your reasoning before deciding what to do with the article. Thank you.

It would also be to your benefit to read this: Wikipedia:Assume good faith Davidovic 12:51, 27 October 2007 (UTC)

I've read your talk page, but I think I'll leave it up to an administrator to decide what to do with the article, as it seems superflous. While waiting for a decision, why don't you brush up on your etiquette? :) Davidovic 12:56, 27 October 2007 (UTC)
Look, if an admin comes along and decides that the article should remain, that's fine by me, I've been wrong before, but for now I'm going to leave the speedy delete tag on there. You're being quite rude about the whole thing, though, the new page patrol is an important part of Wikipedia. People don't do it for barnstars, they do it to benefit the project. If a quarter of the articles that get deleted every day were to remain, Wikipedia would become a seething mass of random knowledge, superflous facts and non-notable ideas. Please don't assume that other editors have a personal vendetta against you, because most of them don't. Davidovic 13:04, 27 October 2007 (UTC)

Conduct[edit]

Hey there,

I just thought I'd leave you a note here about the way you've been dealing with out conflict over the Enemy (military). First off, I know I'm not blameless, and I apologise for any remarks I've made that have been out of line. It's not easy to watch something you've put a lot of work into be marked for deletion.

However, there are certain things you've been doing which you should probably steer clear of in future. For example, if you have a problem with something another user has done, by all means be bold and feel free to remove it, but in most cases you should leave a polite note on the article talk page saying what you've done and why you've done it. Many editors won't see things your way, and some may take offence if you just revert their edit without any real explanation or chance to debate.

In closing, I think you'd benefit from assuming good faith and generally being more polite about other people's contributions :)

Thanks! Happy editing :) Davidovic 12:11, 28 October 2007 (UTC)

I don't appreciate personal attacks, especially as I'm trying to help. Davidovic 13:01, 28 October 2007 (UTC)
"Mcpinions"? A "handicap to Wikipedia"? Those look like personal attacks to me. Davidovic 13:05, 28 October 2007 (UTC)

Apologies[edit]

Chessy999, it seems that, somehow, we have crossed swords and have fallen into a disagreeable state. To the extent that any of my activities have been responsible for any such a falling out, I wish to apologise without hesitation and unreservedly for them. Please accept my pledge to try to work together henceforth. It seems our interests lie in some of the same areas and it's entirely possible that we shall cross paths again in the future. When that should occur, I should much rather like to think of you as an ally or, at worst, as a worthy adversary. Again, please accept my apologies. If there's anything you think I might be able to do for you, please don't hesitate to ask. In the meantime, might I be so bold as to suggest, with all due respect, that you review the Help page at Reverting.

Speedy deletion of Glossohyal[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on Glossohyal requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a very short article providing little or no context to the reader. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content.

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

Simple English[edit]

Chessy: If you aren't up for engaging in civil discussion about the content of an article, why are you editing this encyclopedia? I am not talking about using simple english; I am talking about using plain English. "Removing redundancy will not damage the meaning [of an article], and in most cases will strengthen it. Crisp, elegant writing demands the elimination of redundancy." The phrase "with endeavor" is clearly redundant once you have stated the motives of the dogs. Obstinately reinserting superfluous words belies an ignorance about the meaning of those words. Please don't edit the article until you're ready to discuss your changes.

Deletion of link to Bobby Fischer Memorial at Find A Grave[edit]

This is the second time that someone has deleted Bobby Fischer's link to Find A Grave. You say that you have removed a link already cited in the article. His article states that Bobby Fischer was buried at a cemetery in Iceland, but that has nothing to do with linking the article to his memorial at Find A Grave. To delete the link merely because his burial place is mentioned in the article is absurd. There are a lot of idiots who edit on Wikipedia. Your deletion of Bobby Fischer's link to Find A Grave constitutes vandalism, because there is no need or reason to delete the link, and the link itself is a constructive (positive) edit to a good Web site.

Bull and Terrier[edit]

I dont think you should deny or try to ignore or reject bull and terrier crosses whom are hunting dogs. Just about every working/hunting terrier you see today has bull-dog blood in them and the history and use of bull and terriers as hunting dogs should be on the Bull and Terrier article in my opinion. I am aware that this fact contradicts the direction and limited tone on the Bull and Terrier article as it is today, but maybe we can correct the tone so that it includes hunting bull and terriers too, rather than just trying to delete the fact that most hunting terriers are also bull and terrier crosses. Maybe we can work together to make a very good article.

If we cannot work together, or if just dont want to include the hunting bull and terrier crosses, then I will leave this artical alone.Working terriers (talk) 14:04, 28 March 2008 (UTC)

monkey baiting[edit]

please see the talk page of monkey-baiting.

there have been criticisms of the conclusion/summary section already. the citation does not come to any conclusion. conclusions are not standard for wikipedia. wikipedia does not accept original research.

If you still want that section, why not ask for a 3rd opinion? dont take my word for it, request that someone else intervene and give their opinion. Sennen goroshi (talk) 09:58, 29 April 2008 (UTC)


Lets make this as easy as possible, if you read the talk page relating to monkey baiting, you will see that consensus is in favour of not having a summary/conclusion section.

A summary/conclusion section is not in line with standard wikipedia protocol.

Tbis is an encyclopedia not a school project or university paper, it is up to the editors to present facts, and up to the readers to draw their own conclusions.

Even if the conclusion is correct, then it is still not acceptable for wikipedia.

I don't mean to be an asshole about this, but consensus is crystal clear on this issue.

NowCommons: Image:000 0106.JPG[edit]

Image:000 0106.JPG is now available on Wikimedia Commons as Commons:Image:Waterfall 0106.JPG. This is a repository of free media that can be used on all Wikimedia wikis. The image will be deleted from Wikipedia, but this doesn't mean it can't be used anymore. You can embed an image uploaded to Commons like you would an image uploaded to Wikipedia, in this case: [[Image:Waterfall 0106.JPG]]. Note that this is an automated message to inform you about the move. This bot did not copy the image itself. --Erwin85Bot (talk) 02:27, 7 September 2008 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:Eklogo.JPG)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Eklogo.JPG. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. 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 all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 05:27, 17 December 2008 (UTC)

Nazi architecture[edit]

This is an answer to your message:

"Hi, can you provide a citation for your entry into the nazi architecture article ? Chessy999 (talk) 10:50, 7 December 2007 (UTC)"

I never submitted such an entry. It must have been made by a someone whose IP address changes periodically.

Replaceable fair use File:Norinco_HP9-1.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Norinco_HP9-1.jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that the media is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information or which could be adequately covered with text alone. If you believe this media is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the media 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 this non-free media by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per our non-free content policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Nilfanion (talk) 10:35, 20 February 2011 (UTC)
