Treaty of Paris (1815)[edit]

The article mentiones border change that include areas annexed by France between 1790-1792. However, I haven't found anything annexed in that period. Which exactly areas were swapped? Cautious 17:54, 15 Jun 2005 (UTC)



Hi there. Question about "mid-1800s" on Talk:Victorian Internet, could you take a look? -- Manuel Bondarchuk


Hi, could you protect West Wickham as there is much vandalism such as the name Con/Cornelius Mendez being repeatedly added, and also Shivan Sheosunker. These are addded by students of Langley Park school for Boys Brainbox_112

Hi and thanks for adding List of employer associations and List of labor unions to List of reference tables. I also added List of stock exchanges to it. These are important in the research we are doing for project http://www.consumerium.org/wiki/ . If you have any leads on if there is a list of "national registries" (or something like that) I'm looking for registers of Companies and Associations it'd be greatly appreciated. --Juho 18:04 Mar 16, 2003 (UTC)


Archinatural is an orphan. Could you find an article or two to link to it? Manuel Bondarchuk 01:46 Apr 16, 2003 (UTC)

I was just getting it off of the Architecture page (since it didn't belong - probably some theory of some architecture grad student, but I don't think its important enough to link from there (given 0 google hits). Maybe a candidate for deletion? -- Manuel Bondarchuk


Hello, I don't really have a comment on an article, but I thought I'd say hello to a fellow Quizbowl person! Adam Bishop 22:17 16 Jun 2003 (UTC)


Hello

Would you have any transport input to add to the local food article ? Thanks User:anthere

Thanks for pulling in USPS info to timeline of postal history! I think some of the entries are too minor to merit a mention in global postal history (otherwise you'll have hundreds of entries listing each country's first "simplified postmark" etc), plus a lot of entries are now unclear as to which country they refer to. Of course, if the US was the first to introduce an innovation, then those entries can stay. Stan 19:07 28 Jul 2003 (UTC)

Well, the USPS thing was grabbed from the usps history page, and so of course is biased (and tends towards minutia in later years. Feel free to cut what you think is unimportant, though even a minor change in the US is probably more important (affects more people) than when a minor country issues its first stamp. dml

Are you sure that Gary Glitter's R&R2 is the theme to Dr Who? Dr Who pre-dates the song by a decade at least - did the theme music change at some time? I also wouldn't cosider R&R2 to be space rock at all. Bob Palin 05:35, 21 Feb 2004 (UTC)

search for "Doctorin the Tardis" by the Time Lords, which is a variation on Gary Glitter's song (there have been more than one dr. who theme). Whether it is space rock or glam rock or something else is more subjective (there is no official board of space rock classification), but it is David Bowie like in my mind and he bridged the two. dml
I did search and it says simply that "a rythm" from R&R was used. Gary Glitter practically invented glam rock, in as much as he is like Bowie (and I don't think they are in the same league) it was during Bowie's more showy Ziggy days which are also considered glam rock. There really is no way to consider R&R a space rock tune. I like R&R2 btw, part of my youth.

here is a quote from Wiki on GG "Finally, Leander and Glitter decided that glam rock was the way to go, and began recording "Rock and Roll", a fifteen minute song that eventually became two parts ("Rock and Roll (Part 1)" and "Rock and Roll (Part 2)")."

"Doctorin' the Tardis" is a 1988 remix of the original 1963 Doctor Who theme by Ron Grainer together with Glitter's "Rock and Roll", made by the KLF performing under the name "The Timelords" (see The Timelords for details). It was part of a double A-side single with "What Time is Love". At no time was it the Doctor Who theme music. -- The Anome 16:02, 21 Feb 2004 (UTC)
I am quite certain that watching Doctor Who reruns Saturday nights in the US on PBS in Atlanta c. 1988-89, the opening song was The Timelords version (having checked the MP3). I had always assumed it was older, but I am certain that it was in fact played at the opening of the episode. This may have been a local, US or temporary phenomenon, but somebody remastered at least the Tom Baker episodes for rerelease. Given that Dr. Who is science-fiction-like and involves space travel (as well as spooky Dr. Who sound effects), it is not too much a leap to call The Timelords version space rock. Whether that carries to Glitter, I don't know. dml 15:49, 22 Feb 2004 (UTC)
having never seen Dr Who in the US I can't comment on that and I haven't seen much Dr Who at all since the 70s, it was however my favourite program growing up, seems a bit dated now. I think that the original theme for Dr Who was certainly one of the earliest pieces of space rock perhaps only predated by the Tornado's Telstar. These are not just space rock/music because of the space connection, they experiment with "space" related sounds. Of course they weren't called that at the time since the genre didn't exist. I bet that the members of Hawkwind (the best space rock by far) grew up as avid Dr Who fans. Good conversation.

Air raid shelter

David, how did you manage to remove all those paras from my air raid shelter article without showing your signature, somehow showing my name against the changes? You are saying instead you had reverted to my own page. I never removed my own pages. Please tell me. --Dieter Simon 00:48, 27 Feb 2004 (UTC)

I didn't. I don't have magic database access. Perhaps you inadvertantly reverted the page to the last page I had edited, or some other user did (though I don't know how your name would show up unless there is a bug). See User Contributions, the only thing I did on that day was with the World's Fair. Manuel Bondarchuk 12:47, 27 Feb 2004 (UTC).
Yes David, apologies, I have a feeling the site might have a software problem and might be corrupted. I'll try to find someone to take a look at it and see if that's the case. --Dieter Simon

United States Office of Management and Budget[edit]

Can you explain how those pieces of legislation are related to the United States Office of Management and Budget? Kingturtle 02:03, 10 Apr 2004 (UTC)

some more so than others, I had a list of important legislation, but not so important that it should go on List of United States federal legislation, so I moved it to the seemingly responsible agency. Some day, there will be an article on each of these (as I find time I will do this, but someone else is free to go first), and if you would like to better classify them, that would be great. dml 20:33, 13 Apr 2004 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Browse by category and Template:Categories[edit]

Hi David, you might be interested in the debate going on at Wikipedia talk:Browse by category. I am somewhat partial to your cleanup, so you might be interested in following and joining in the discussion. I think there have been some good additions by Kenny sh, since the old http://en.wikipedia.org/w/wiki.phtml?title=Template:Wikipediatoc&oldid=2530290, but I think the current design is a little cluttered and the language and choice of terms somewhat idiosyncratic (compare to say, Encyclopedia Britannica). --Lexor|Talk

May be better Thinking instead reasoning in TOC? Kenny 15:22, 2004 Aug 10 (UTC)
I picked reasoning because I wanted something like abstraction, thinking isn't quite the right nuance. Other one word suggestions are welcomedml 21:52, 10 Aug 2004 (UTC)

Architecture[edit]

Hi, Its a good idea of yours to have the main Architecture page on architecture(buildings). Its something I thought of doing after I created the disambiguation page. However, I don't know how long it will last that way because the reason I created the disambiguation page in the first instance was because people kept including the newly, and now equally well used, contexts:-). I will list the Architecture (built environment) page for deletion. KRS 18:13, 16 Aug 2004 (UTC)

un-re-direct-ification: I assume making Talk:Architecture into a redirect to Talk:Architecture (disambiguation) was an accident, and fixed it. If we have 2 independent articles (one is not a redirect to the other), then we need 2 independent talk pages, right? --DavidCary 20:20, 14 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Israeli West Bank barrier - a wall[edit]

Hello, just out of interest, did you realise you might be doing somthing controversial when you included the WB barrier in the category:walls? It's caused quite a controversy... [1] pir 19:32, 16 Aug 2004 (UTC)

Category:Natural sciences, etc[edit]

Hi, I noticed that you depopulated Category:Natural sciences except for its title article, and put the articles in Category:Science. What's the reasoning behind this? Thanks siroχo 23:16, Oct 7, 2004 (UTC)

Category:Science is linked from the front page. The general idea is that users/readers/editors should be able to find categories with the fewest number of clicks. Going from Category:Science to Category:natural sciences to Category:Biology is 50% more effort (and time with sluggish servers) than simply science to biology. dml 23:32, 7 Oct 2004 (UTC)

Hi there! Thanks for adding the image Image:Michael iii.jpg. It currently doesn't have an image copyright tag, and I was hoping that you would add one as untagged images may be deleted eventually.

Exploding whale[edit]

I happen to find this my most favourite story, so it's on my watchlist. I saw your edit about the king in see also. Please don't do that again, this could be counted as vandalism! - Ta bu shi da yu 23:48, 13 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Don't insult me by threatening me with calling me a vandal. The king did explode (see the article), the items are related, as is obvious, by the potential change in chemistry/build up of gases in large mammals after death. You don't own the story or the article. The fact is correct (as far as is known), it does not interfere with the flow of the article, and is in fact related. Get over yourself. dml 00:46, 14 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Wikinews demo up and running[edit]

Hi!

I'm writing to let you know that the Wikimedia Board of Trustees has approved the first stage of the Wikinews project. There's now a fully operational English demo site at demo.wikinews.org. This will be used for experimenting with various review models and basic policies before the site is launched officially in about a week. demo.wikinews.org will become the English version later.

You voted for the Wikinews project, so I'm asking for your participation now. Everything is open, nothing is final. What Wikinews will and can be depends in large part on you. There already is a global Wikinews mailing list for discussing the project. If you are interested at all, please subscribe -- coordination is of key importance. There's also an IRC channel #wikinews on irc.freenode.net. Realtime discussion can help to polish up articles.

If you're looking for something to do, check out the articles in development and articles in review. Or start a new story in the Wikinews workspace, or ignore the proposed review system - it's up to you. I hope you'll join us soon in this exciting experiment.--Eloquence* 01:59, Nov 17, 2004 (UTC)

Category:DavidLevinson[edit]

Would you mind removing your user page from Category:DavidLevinson? I'm trying to help to clean up Category:Orphaned categories, and your category is one that is turning up. It would be helpful (and in keeping with Wikipedia:User_page#What_should_I_avoid.3F) if you would remove your user page from that category and request that it be deleted. -[[User:Aranel|Aranel ("Sarah")]] 15:47, 22 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Article Licensing[edit]

Hi, I've started the Free the Rambot Articles Project which has the goals of getting users to multi-license all of their contributions that they've made to...

  1. ...all U.S. state, county, and city articles...
  2. ...all articles...

using the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike (CC-by-sa) version 1.0 and 2.0 Licenses or into the public domain if they prefer. The CC-by-sa license is a true free documentation license that is similar to the GFDL (which every contribution made to Wikipedia is licensed under), but it allows other projects, such as WikiTravel, to use our articles (See the Multi-licensing Guide for more information). Since you are among the top 1000 Wikipedians by edits, I was wondering if you would be willing to multi-license all of your contributions or at minimum those on the geographic articles. So far over 90% of people who have responded have done this.

Nutshell: Wikipedia articles can be shared with any other GFDL project but open/free projects using the incompatible Creative Commons Licenses (e.g. WikiTravel) can't use our stuff and we can't use theirs. It is important to us that other free projects can use our stuff. So we use their licenses too.

To allow us to track those users who muli-license their contributions, many users copy and paste the {{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}} template (or {{MultiLicensePD}} for public domain) into their user page, but there are other templates for other options at Template messages/User namespace. The following examples could also copied and pasted into your user page:

Option 1
I agree to [[Wikipedia:Multi-licensing|multi-license]] all my contributions, with the exception of my user pages, as described below:
{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}

OR

Option 2
I agree to [[Wikipedia:Multi-licensing|multi-license]] all my contributions to any [[U.S. state]], county, or city article as described below:
{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}

Or if you wanted to place your work into the public domain, you could replace {{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}} with {{MultiLicensePD}}. If you only prefer using the GFDL, I would like to know that too. Please let me know at my talk page what you think. It's important to know, even if you choose to do anything so I don't keep asking. -- Ram-Man 16:24, Dec 2, 2004 (UTC)

RFC pages on VfD[edit]

Should RFC pages be placed on VfD to be deleted? I'm considering removing Wikipedia:Requests for comment/Slrubenstein, Wikipedia:Requests for comment/Jwrosenzweig and Wikipedia:Requests for comment/John Kenney from WP:VFD. Each of them was listed by CheeseDreams. Your comments on whether I should do this would be appreciated. - Ta bu shi da yu 03:33, 10 Dec 2004 (UTC)


Unverified images[edit]

Hi! Thanks for uploading the following image:

I notice it currently doesn't have an image copyright tag. Could you add one to let us know its copyright status? (You can use {{gfdl}} if you release it under the GNU Free Documentation License, {{fairuse}} if you claim fair use, etc.) If you don't know what any of this means, just let me know at my talk page where you got the images and I'll tag them for you. Thanks so much. [[User:Poccil|Peter O. (Talk, automation script)]] 22:04, Dec 10, 2004 (UTC)

P.S. You can help tag other images at User:Yann/Untagged_Images. Thanks again.

C/D Roads[edit]

C/D roads are completely different from collector roads and distributor roads. The link to Hierarchy of roads does not belong on Collector/distributor road. --SPUI 03:37, 1 Jan 2005 (UTC)

Yes, they are different. (Though they have similar functions, collecting and distributing traffic from a higher level road). They are part of the hierarchy of roads however, allowing the separation of access and movement functions, enabling freeways to accomplish things that in their absence they could not. dml 03:39, 1 Jan 2005 (UTC)
The only thing a C/D road allows a freeway to do is reduce weaving on its main lanes. It is simply a special type of ramp, and ramps are never included in the road hierarchy. --SPUI 03:45, 1 Jan 2005 (UTC)
It is a parallel roadway that allows the freeway to operate with less interference (and thus higher speed and flow), by shifting access functions away from the roadway. It is more than a ramp (hence the name C/D road in your terms, or C/D lanes as I have seen (e.g. Interstate 270 in Montgomery County, Maryland). dml 03:47, 1 Jan 2005 (UTC)
In the case of I-270, the outer lanes are simply a freeway/arterial-class road. In the case of more minor C/D roads, they are a type of ramp. A collector road takes traffic between local roads and freeways. Ramps usually connect collectors to freeways, and are extensions of the freeway. The C/D road lies between the freeway and the ramps, and thus has nothing to do with a collector road. --SPUI 03:50, 1 Jan 2005 (UTC)
I made some changes to the hierarchy of roads article, feel free to elaborate. dml 04:05, 1 Jan 2005 (UTC)
Eh, I made some changes, nothing major. I'll leave the link from C/D road, though I still don't really think it should be there, at least the article now discusses them. --SPUI 04:08, 1 Jan 2005 (UTC)

Need a Deletion[edit]

Dave, hi, I have written an article on Vailsburg, Newark. I wanted it to fit into a template so I wrote copies at Vailsburg, Newark, New Jersey; Vailsburg, Newark; and simply Vailsburg. Could you please delete the copies from Vailsburg, Newark, New Jersey; Vailsburg, Newark. I only want Vailsburg to continue to exist.

dinopup

The standard as far as I can tell is that neighborhoods would use the Vailsburg, Newark, New Jersey format (see the other neighborhoods as an example). Are you sure about this? Also the cat should probably just be Category:Newark, New Jersey Neighborhoods since that is in Category:Newark, New Jersey. dml 18:03, 1 Jan 2005 (UTC)

Kiwanis Membership Stat[edit]

"Transportation"[edit]

Please observe the style concerning the first major contributor to a page. Maurreen 19:29, 27 Feb 2005 (UTC)

I'm interested in some rationale and references pertaining to the changes you made to the Transportation article ( Transportation article diff ) . Cycling as a major form of transport is and has been very popular in China and other countries, has been growing in Denmark and Holland especially, but also in countries like Sweden in recent years, and cities like Stockholm and London. Those countries are among the richest in the world and doing better than most other countries in terms of the Human Development Index (HDI) [3] The underlying causes for the decline in cycling seen in the western world, might well be other than affluency in itself. Perhaps Hollywood and advertising has played a major role. Wikipdia should be Wikipedia:NPOV, but not to the detriment of well argued and well referenced counterpoints to "common sense". I do admit that the contribution of pro-bicycling editor, also lacked somewahat in references though. --Mokgand 22:04, 25 August 2005 (UTC)

I edited the section to be more NPOV and better written. The previous version asserted "sustainability" which is at best a nebulous concept. Evidence is people are more or less selfishly rational when choosing the modes they do given their income, their desire to reach preferred ends, etc. That cycling remains a minor mode in most developed countries, and is shrinking in share as most countries get wealthier is a fact. dml 03:40, 26 August 2005 (UTC)
I beg to differ, as I mentioned earlier, citing arguments and examples. Many people who cycle cite the apparrently selfish motivation of better health, and many studies support the notion that cycling might make a difference for health. Odense in Denmark increased cycling by 20% and saved millions in the health sector. I'll gladly give you sources if you want. What sources support your view  ? --Mokgand 22:58, 3 September 2005 (UTC)
See e.g. [4], bike mode share in Beijing was significantly higher than any US city (and is declining as wealth increases). Obviously, some select flat European cities have high bike mode shares. We are not arguing whether or not more biking is a good thing, so that it saved millions in the health sector is quite irrelevant. The facts are simply that as countries develop the automobile gains share at the expense of less preferred modes. This is about analysis not advocacy. dml 23:21, 3 September 2005 (UTC)

Club/team certification[edit]

Hi,

re: your club/team certification proposal, I have proposed something very similar in October 2002 [5]. My thinking on peer review has moved on a bit since then; I'm now trying to find a model which maintains uniform standards of quality throughout the project. But I thought you might be interested in reading the discussion thread that developed back then.--Eloquence* 01:56, Mar 16, 2005 (UTC)

expos/nationals debate[edit]

There is a major debate going on, and I wondered if you might want to chime in. The debate involves how to deal with franchise moves in baseball. The question is whether Montréal Expos should be its own article or if it should redirect to Washington Nationals. All other instances of franchise moves in MLB redirect the old team name to the new team name, and the history of the franchise is covered within the new team name (for MLB, NBA and NFL examples, see here. Some people are confused and think the Expos and the Nats are different teams. Some people don't want to upset Canadian readers.

Indeed, the Washington Nationals are not a new team - the Montreal Expos franchise has moved to Washington, and the old franchise name should redirect to the new franchise name, just like the 20+ instances of this occuring in Wikipedia. For example, Brooklyn Dodger history resides in the Los Angeles Dodgers article. New York Giants history, including the Shot Heard 'Round the World, resides in the San Francisco Giants article.

If you have the time, maybe you could chime in on the conversation there, Wikipedia:Votes for deletion/Montréal Expos. Kingturtle 21:05, 28 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Question on old edit[edit]

Hi,

I noticed that in June 2002 (!!!) you added the datum that Ibn Nafis discovered the circulatory system in 1242 in the article Timeline of medicine and medical technology. However, this disagrees with the date of 1268 given in circulatory system by a whopping 26 years! I looked online for a source to no avail; do you have a reference for the datum in question? I would like to fix whichever article is in need of fixing, but I can't do it without a reference and unfortunately I can't find one myself. (Internal inconsistencies drive me crazy!) Thanks for your help.

- Bryan is Bantman 23:31, May 2, 2005 (UTC)

Category:Los Angeles Neighborhoods[edit]

I saw your work on the Los Angeles category. To conform with capitalization standards, Category:Los Angeles neighborhoods, with a small "n", would be preferable. Further, I see that you're assigning L.A. companies to that category, which strikes me as an odd choice. Would somehing like "L.A. businesses" be a better choice? Anyway, thanks for the effort.

Category:Science protection[edit]

I note you've protected Category:Science twice now as a result of vandalism. However, both times there was only a single instance of vandalism, which is nowhere near enough to warrant page protection. Also, you didn't put Template:vprotected at the top of the page, you didn't put a note on the category talk: page explaining why you'd protected the page, and you didn't add it to Wikipedia:Protected_page#List_of_protected_pages. You should take a look through Wikipedia:Protection policy, these steps are important for keeping track of protected pages and letting people know what's going on with them. Bryan 07:07, 12 Jun 2005 (UTC)

It is a category linked from the main page, and they are the first thing vandals can get too, hence their high rate of vandalism (see also History, Geography, Personal Life). btw, the Protect this page ought to automatically put on some standard template if it is in fact standard. dml 21:45, 13 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Plastics[edit]

  • Just wanted to say 'Hi', and make known to you that the article on plastics seems to hold nothing on Polycarbonates. I'm just a dumb double-E working on Drum (Container), but this seems an fairly significant oversight in the article. Since you were involved back near it's genesis, thought you should know. If you don't want to handle the matter, what do you suggest? [[User:Fabartus| fabartus || TalktoMe]] 20:11, 17 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Hi David, I found you on the list of Wikipedians from Minnesota. I've been working on the Norman Borlaug article and we need some GFDL compatible images, are you in the vicinity of the University of Minnesota St Paul Campus?

Category Mathematics[edit]

Hi I see you merged the mathematics portal and category page. To be honest I'm personally not all that fond about it, but there also are some real problems

  • The mathematics portal is under-maintained (I believe the last update was made in April) and the fact that the most prominent mathematics editors don't seem to have noticed the change yet, makes me doubt it will be in the future. Are you willing to help with this?
  • You carelessly copied the potal over, destroying the rather carefully crafted one paragraph introduction to mathematics, didn't bother to update the COTW (which currently is Manifold), removed the nice fractal image, and replaced the not so good Major fields of mathematics with the even worse Categories from the portal, and removed several banners.

Cheers, --R.Koot 19:44, 17 July 2005 (UTC)

I think the wording is kind of tough, but I agree with R.Koot's statement. Big changes of this kind be better discussed first at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Mathematics. Oleg Alexandrov 22:08, 17 July 2005 (UTC)

All of the other categories linked from the main page were merged with their portal pages. Please feel free to fix whatever you would like, the mathematics category page only refers to the boxes that are on the portal page. Hopefully increasing prominence will decrease undermaintenance.

Minneapolis meetup[edit]

Hello DavidLevinson. I'm contacting you since you are listed at Wikipedia:Wikipedians/Minnesota. I'm going to be at a conference in Minneapolis and am planning a Wikipedia meetup for October 8. If you are near Minneapolis at that time, please see Wikipedia:Meetup/Minneapolis. Angela. 20:55, 3 October 2005 (UTC)

Northern Breweries[edit]

Hi there...quick question for ya. You added Category:Cooperatives to the Northern Breweries article. I'm just wondering if it really fits, given that Northern isn't a cooperative anymore. Bearcat 00:06, 6 October 2005 (UTC)

I suppose you could create Category:Former cooperatives, there are a few others that would belong as well. dml 00:52, 6 October 2005 (UTC)

Railbox and TTX[edit]

Hi, I see you added Railbox and TTX to Category:Cooperatives... would you think that all the terminal roads (railways in and around a city owned by the major connecting railways in that city, for example Indiana Harbor Belt and union station companies (companies set up to operate large stations such as Chicago Union Station, etc) are also cooperatives? I'm wondering if adding these to that category actually adds information or not. Also, would you say that the Conrail Shared Assets Area is a cooperative? it is owned by the two railroads that use it (it's what remains after Conrail was demerged)... I would say it is not. Just curious as to your thoughts. ++Lar 04:13, 11 October 2005 (UTC)

Maybe a new category Category:Rail cooperatives would be appropriate? dml 22:50, 12 October 2005 (UTC)

Category:Rail cooperatives[edit]

What do you think about renaming this to Category:Joint rail lines? That term is in use, while "rail cooperatives" seems to not be widely used. We also have an article at joint railway describing the situation. There is also a Category:British joint railway companies that would be a subcategory of it. --SPUI (talk) 13:21, 15 October 2005 (UTC)

That takes care of part of it, but what about Railbox and Railgon? dml 13:45, 15 October 2005 (UTC)


Tappan[edit]

I don't have personal knowledge that Tappan is now part of Weedeater. I just discovered that the link to the Frigidaire page was dead, and located a new description under the Weedeater page. The corporate description here: Weedeater says that Weedeater is the North American division of Electrolux A.B., formed in 1997 by the consolidation of American Yard Products, Frigidaire, and Poulan/WeedEater. So perhaps it is more accurate to say that Tappan is still a part of Frigidaire, a division of Weedeater owned by Electolux A.B., although the Fridgidaire connection is not explicitly stated on the website. --Blainster 01:29, 19 October 2005 (UTC)

I think the "we" at [6] refers to "Electrolux Home Products" rather than Weedeater. dml 01:31, 19 October 2005 (UTC)
After re-reading it, I agree, and restored the sense of your edit. --Blainster 01:47, 19 October 2005 (UTC)

Zagat's[edit]

Are you the one that deleted the Zagat's page that dealt with the SNL sketch? I wrote that, and there was a discussion going on about its deletion.

The Future of Wikipedia[edit]

I saw your name on recent changes a few minutes ago, clicked on it, and I read your insightful composition. You might consider sub-paging it and categorizing it into Wikipedia essays for greater visibility. If you still want it on your front user page too, which I'm guessing you probably do, then just put:

<noinclude>[[Category:Wikipedia essays|{{PAGENAME}}]]</noinclude>

on it, and

{{/The Future of Wikipedia}}

on your main page. If you already know how to do this, forgive the apparent condescension... I just think it's something everyone should read. Regards. — FREAK OF NURxTURE (TALK) 03:57, 19 November 2005 (UTC)

Wikipedia talk:Stable versions#Certification gang[edit]

what do you think of this? -- Zondor 16:18, 4 January 2006 (UTC)

Re: Stable versions[edit]

"I don't understand what you did by voting against Wikipedia for stable versions, editing the article by adding a misspelled link, and then nominating that different version with the misspelled link. This is never going to work if you fiddle the article and require a new vote each time. I thought you supported your proposal." - i do support the proposal. that misspelled link was not intentionally done by me. something must be wrong with the media wiki software. i meant to only fix the self reference. you dont expect the nomination to be rosy, do you? -- Zondor 16:44, 8 January 2006 (UTC)

Low-value links in A&P[edit]

Hi David, a few days ago you reverted my edit to this page. I did nothing but delete the low-value links per the MoS. Why did you revert my edit? — EagleOne\Talk 17:52, 11 January 2006 (UTC)

I disagree that year links are low value. dml 22:28, 11 January 2006 (UTC)
Year links, as a general rule, add very little information to an article. As such, I will continue to remove them wherever I find them (except for full date links). However, I do not want to get into an edit war over this, so I will leave the A&P article alone. — EagleOne\Talk 21:05, 13 January 2006 (UTC)

Image Tagging Image:Schmidt's Blue Ribbon.jpg[edit]

Warning sign
This image may be deleted.

Thanks for uploading Image:Schmidt's Blue Ribbon.jpg. I notice the image page currently doesn't specify who created the image, so the copyright status is therefore unclear. If you have not created the image yourself then you need to argue that we have the right to use the image on Wikipedia (see copyright tagging below). If you have not created the image yourself then you should also specify where you found it, i.e., in most cases link to the website where you got it, and the terms of use for content from that page.

If the image also doesn't have a copyright tag then you must also add one. If you created/took the picture then you can use {{GFDL}} to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the image qualifies as fair use, please read fair use, and then use a tag such as {{Non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair_use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other images, please check that you have specified their source and copyright tagged them, 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 unsourced and untagged images will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Stan 04:04, 22 January 2006 (UTC)

Early life of Joseph Smith, Jr./Stable[edit]

The notice was appreciated. Tweaking nearly finished articles is something I rather enjoy here, and the subject is interesting to me. I have already made two suggestions, and am reviewing the rest of the article as much as I am able.

Distinction without a difference[edit]

Your article Distinction without a difference has appeared in the Dead End Pages list because it is not wikified.

United Hardware[edit]

Just so you know - I have ruled that the article United Hardware, although it did seem somewhat spammish, has been rewritten to the point where it no longer does. So it's no longer in danger of being deleted. I've left Death Eater Dan a message to this effect as well. DS 23:47, 13 March 2006 (UTC)

"Simplifying" a name[edit]

you recently moved an article to Simmons. Why? That is not the name of the business and there was already a redirect for that name. The standard around here is that the article should have the correct name of the business and alternate names are redirects. She we redirect Microsoft to MS? Simmons is a common enough name that a Disambiguate page might be better in the place of Simmons in any case. ---J.Smith 19:31, 26 March 2006 (UTC)

Use common names is a principle, the full name the previous version The Simmons Manufacturing Co., LLC is quite unwieldy, is it Co. Company, Co, do you include LLC L.L.C, etc. the beginning of the name with "The" is also quite strange. dml 22:25, 26 March 2006 (UTC)
I was just thinking of the case of AOL being redirected to America Online... but that makes sense I guess since they do business under both names. *shrug* I dunno. The newest name looks great, btw. Oh... thanks for your help on my little project of expanding the coverage of mattress companies! Are you involved in the industry? ---J.Smith 08:21, 27 March 2006 (UTC)

Soul City[edit]

Hi. I noticed that you were the original author of Soul City, North Carolina. I live nearby in Winston-Salem (er, sort of near by), and visited recently to take some pictures for an assignment. I spoke with the people at the Green Duke House for a while about their history, trying to take in some things that I could add onto the article here.

I was wondering how you had come across Soul City, and if you had any resources you could suggest to follow up with. It's an interesting story to be told, and I can see some things being added onto the article here. Drop me a line sometime and let me know if you've got any ideas. Thanks. Tijuana Brass 21:03, 17 April 2006 (UTC)

Geolinks on railway stations[edit]

Hi David, I reverted your edit to East Croydon station because the Geolinks you added overlapped existing ones rendering both illegible. Obviously, we can only have one type of title co-ordinates. However, this raises a wider question: which style of co-ordinates should be used? Decimals of degrees, or degrees, minutes, seconds? I personally grew up with the latter, so that is what I've been using on various railway stations etc. But I'm wondering whether there's a policy on which type to use. Do you know?

Category:Garden suburbs[edit]

Hi David. I just added a suggestion to this category (see Category talk:Garden suburbs). There is currently no category for Garden cities, and I think it would be better to have a single category covering both cities and suburbs rather than try to differentiate between them. What do you think? --RichardVeryard 16:41, 7 September 2007 (UTC)

Lange Model[edit]

I noticed some revisions you made to the Input-Output Model article, and I was wondering if you would be willing to give me any feedback on additions I've made to the article Lange Model. Thanks so much! --EMB330 04:37, 25 October 2007 (UTC)

Hi David[edit]

Hello David! I was cleaning up some pages today, due to ImageBacklogBot replacing any fair use image with Image:Example.jpg, and came across an image you'd uploaded, Image:TF-diamond-logo.gif, which used the image in the summary, so it was replaced with the example picture. I removed the example.jpg, but I noticed that the image did not have a {{Non-free use rationale}}, so I went ahead and added one, but no source was given, so it is placed in the Images without source category. I realize it has been over 18 months since you uploaded it, but if you happened to recall where you got the image, could you please add it to the FUR for the source? I'd hate to see that image deleted! ArielGold 10:54, 10 December 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:CumminsEngineLogo.png[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:CumminsEngineLogo.png. 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. — Κaiba 01:49, 27 December 2007 (UTC)

Unspecified source for Image:Biltmore-Atlanta.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg

Thanks for uploading Image:Biltmore-Atlanta.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, then you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, then their copyright should also be acknowledged.

As well as adding the source, please add a proper copyright licensing tag if the file doesn't have one already. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Fair use, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 22:08, 13 January 2008 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. MECUtalk 22:08, 13 January 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Encyclopedia of Life Support Systems[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on Encyclopedia of Life Support Systems requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A3 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is an article with no content whatsoever, or whose contents consist only of external links, "See also" section, book reference, category tag, template tag, interwiki link, rephrasing of the title, or an attempt to contact the subject of the article. 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 page (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the article does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that a copy be emailed to you. Jmlk17 06:48, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

Disputed fair use rationale for Image:AG South logo.jpg}[edit]

Thank you for uploading Image:AG South logo.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this image under "fair use" may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content. This can be corrected by going to the image description page and add or clarify the reason why the image qualifies for fair use. In particular, for each page the image is used on, the image must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Can you please check:

  • That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's escription page for each article the image is used in.
  • That every article it is used on is linked to from its description page.

Please be aware that a fair use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for images used under the fair use policy require both a copyright tag and a fair use rationale.

If it is determined that the image does not qualify under fair use, it might be deleted by adminstrator within a few days in accordance with our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions, please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you. NOTE: once you correct this, please remove the tag from the image's page.

Notability of Sunbeam Bread[edit]

Information icon.svg

Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on Sunbeam Bread, by another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. The tag claims that it should be speedily deleted because Sunbeam Bread seems to be about a person, group of people, band, club, company, or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not assert the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

To contest the tagging and request that administrators wait before possibly deleting Sunbeam Bread, please affix the template {{hangon}} to the page, and put a note on its talk page. If the article has already been deleted, see the advice and instructions at WP:WMD. Feel free to contact the bot operator if you have any questions about this or any problems with this bot, bearing in mind that this bot is only informing you of the nomination for speedy deletion; it does not perform any nominations or deletions itself.

Notability of Schmidt Baking Company[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on Schmidt Baking Company requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article appears to be about a real person, organization (band, club, company, etc.), or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not indicate the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable. If this is the first page that you have created, then you should read the guide to writing your first article.

If you think that you can assert the notability of the subject, 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 confirm the subject's notability under Wikipedia 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. OccamzRazor (talk) 20:43, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

David, Do you recall why you restored Retailer Owned Food Distributors & Associates back in April? I would be curious to know because I have just AFD'd a similar trade association article, and though I was surprised by Hu12's "we are not a membership directory" deletion, it seemed reasonable at the time. I vaguely recall editing the article, but I don't remember if I tagged it for deletion, or tried to rescue it.

Also, it doesn't seem to have an edit history? Could you restore that too, please?

--Hroðulf (or Hrothulf) (Talk) 14:01, 17 June 2008 (UTC)

Well I created it initially, and though we are not a membership directory, we are a compendium of human knowledge - which was the point, it describes an important (if obscure) organization in the coop market, which happens to have members, who mostly have articles, so it seemed reasonable to list. Certainly did not warrant speedy delete. I can't find the edit history somehow, so I don't know what step is required to get it. dml (talk) 20:08, 20 June 2008 (UTC)

OK - thanks. I thought that the deleting admin's edit summary looked a bit odd. I really hope that you don't discover in the long lost history that I speedy tagged it! By the way, before the delete I tried to find significant online press coverage - and it was darned hard - because it is not a buying group, just really a networking kind of org, as far as I can tell. Maybe you have seen some dead tree coverage? --Hroðulf (or Hrothulf) (Talk) 20:55, 20 June 2008 (UTC)

re: National Academic Championship[edit]

Congratulations on finding those sources. I am concerned because we need secondary sources to really save this article (there are a lot of sources about teams winning the tournament, but to meet WP:N, there really needs to be sources that directly address the topic, and there was nothing in what you left at the AfD that indicated that. Could you provide a link to those articles so that we could check and make sure they are secondary sources ... might even be able to wrap this thing up quick. Thanks much! LonelyBeacon (talk) 19:22, 18 July 2008 (UTC)

No links possible as far as I know, they are pre-Internet, and they are copyrighted or I would include the text, but you can find them in Lexis-Nexis if you have access (most universities do). The Newsweek article is especially on point, describing the tournament, the others are basically winners of X, which I think is still valuable, but not as good. dml (talk) 19:33, 18 July 2008 (UTC).
See also [7] for additional links, not optimal, but from reliable sources.
Hello again, David!
I noted that you are going to try at some point to bring back the NAC article when enough sources are put back together. That is your business, and I certainly will not oppose an article that is properly sourced.
However, I do ask that you consider the following:
There is, as you no doubt know, some very legitimate concerns about this tournament (plagiarism, outright cheating, favoritism) that have been documented publicly. Undoubtedly, because of the way these things are reported, these critiques will never turn up in a usable source. Thus, the article becomes rather inherently one-sided. As I stated before, the deletion of the criticisms section was a jumping off point for discussion about why the article should be deleted, however was not the reason that I began the nomination process. I would ask that if you are truly interested in writing an honest article, that you wait until such a time as these criticisms can also be brought to light. I do commend you for your hard work and effort, but I do ask you to think about the fact that there is "fact", and there is "honesty" (in terms of what an article presents), and that the facts so not always paint an honest picture. Take care and peace! LonelyBeacon (talk) 00:50, 25 July 2008 (UTC)
While I don't particularly like NAC from what I've heard (never played it myself), I believe the deletion was wrongly decided by people who dislike the organization and want to delegitimize it, using the Wikipedia's AfD Calvinball process. At some point this will be recovered, though I don't plan to spend much time on it myself. Feel free to add anything to the working version on my page. What constitutes a usable source is a moving target, but for the basic facts there were plenty of usable sources. There are plenty of wikipedia articles less well sourced than this that would never be deleted. Granted, the criticisms of NAC may not have appeared in published articles, but they certainly appeared in observable sources (message boards, etc.) that can be used as additional references to complement more reliable sources. dml (talk) 01:25, 25 July 2008 (UTC)

Hi there, regardless of whether you are an administrator or not, the creator of a page shouldn't remove a speedy. However, in away you were correct to remove the speedy (correct in that the article passes CSD, but incorrect in that you shouldn't have removed it yourself). I think the articles main "claim to fame" is that it's won that award, so I'd suggest getting some sources in to it ASAP, so as to pass AfD (if the article is nominated for AfD.

Thanks for uploading File:AFS Amarillo logo.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image 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 images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Speedy deletion nomination of Interstate Van Lines[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 Interstate Van Lines 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.) or web content, 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, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hang on}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion, or "db", tag; if no such tag exists, then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hang-on tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, 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. Sitush (talk) 14:22, 18 February 2011 (UTC)

Notification: changes to "Mark my edits as minor by default" preference[edit]

Hello there. This is an automated message to tell you about the gradual phasing out of the preference entitled "Mark all edits minor by default", which you currently have (or very recently had) enabled.

On 13 March 2011, this preference was hidden from the user preferences screen as part of efforts to prevent its accidental misuse (consensus discussion, guidelines for use at WP:MINOR). This had the effect of locking users in to their existing preference, which, in your case, was true. To complete the process, your preference will automatically be changed to false in the next few days. This does not require any intervention on your part and all users will still be able to manually mark their edits as being minor in the usual way.

For well-established users such as yourself there is a workaround available involving custom JavaScript. If you have any problems, feel free to drop me a note.

Thank you for your understanding and happy editing :) Editing on behalf of User:Jarry1250, LivingBot (talk) 20:31, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Topco Logo.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Topco Logo.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image 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 images 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 "file" 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 "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Skier Dude2 (talk) 05:49, 12 April 2011 (UTC)

Is this user posing as an Administrator?[edit]

Threatening another person is considered harassment. This includes threats to harm another person, to disrupt their work on Wikipedia, or to otherwise harm them. Statements of intent to properly use normal Wikipedia processes, such as dispute resolution, are not threats. Legal threats are a special case of threat, with their own settled policy. Users who make legal threats will typically be blocked from editing indefinitely.

========[edit]

:Ahh don't give me that bullshit. I get so sick of single purpose editors telling me this shit. No where in your extensive edit history have you reported a problem nor sought dispute resolution. Now take your complaints to the proper venue before you really piss me off and I say something you regret. - 4twenty42o (talk) 21:49, 20 August 2011 (UTC)

Is that an appropriate example of Wikipedia Policy for an Administrator with regard to civility and threats? Is this user an administrator or just posing as one? JohnLloydScharf (talk) 23:16, 20 August 2011 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Good Neighbor Pharmacy[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Good Neighbor Pharmacy has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Small, non notable trade group association with no substantial claim to importance. Plenty of listings but Wikipedia is not a directory (WP:NOTYELLOW). No reliable sources (WP:RS) or references that assert notability for organisations per WP:ORG.

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 Junior Achievement[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 Junior Achievement requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be a clear copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If the external website belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. If you are not the owner of the external website but have permission from that owner, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission. You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here.

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". 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 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.

MSU Interview[edit]

Dear DavidLevinson,

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 communityHERE, where 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 nameHERE 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) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Chlopeck (talkcontribs) 14:08, 14 February 2012 (UTC)

Nomination of List of automotive fuel brands for deletion[edit]

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of automotive fuel brands until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. Martin451 17:38, 2 October 2013 (UTC)

yourself[edit]

Assuming the names are not just coincidence, it's accepted as a guideline that people do not edit articles about themselves, except to ask for changes on the article talk p.-- see WP:Authobiography. We do not list names of people's students in articles, unless they are notable enough to have articles in WP. (If they are notable enough according to WP:PROF but don't have them, they need to be written!) If you know of other articles where this is being done, please let me know so I can remove them also; my experience is that it is very rare. I'm sure you don't want the article to be viewed as promotional. (And we'd normally list the factor that most clearly demonstrates notability first, which in the case of David Levinson is the named chair he hold.). DGG ( talk ) 18:51, 2 October 2013 (UTC)

- ok, someone (you) introduced grammatical errors in the edit, which is why I reverted it.
