. . Hi there. How are you today?

<:> ACHTUNG <:>[edit]

This here's my talk page.

I refactor at will.

I put things where I can find them.

If what you say is important, I keep it. If it's not, I don't.

I read everything here. I reply to the sane. I definitely reply if you've remembered to take your meds.

My IQ is 176 and I have read all of Voltaire in his original Norwegian. Sometimes I lie.






FROM OTHER TALK PAGES[edit]

==Biff Blumfumgagnge Page - Nomination for Un-Deletion==

Hi Denni - I just noticed the Biff Blumfumgagnge page was deleted by you - here's a few references regarding him showing notability and creating a need for the page:

http://scenenewspaper.com/cdreviews.html notes:

The Gomers are a Madison institution, and two Madison mayors have issued proclamations to prove it. The band appears weekly at the High Noon Saloon as a human karaoke machine called Gomeroke. They are also the house band at the annual Madison Area Music Awards. All of which explains why The Gomers are also known as “Madison’s House Band.” Mike Zirkel The Album provides several sonic clues to why The Gomers have become a household word in Madison homes.

The eight members of The Gomers are musicians, comedians and master parodists. And they have some cool friends, such as Adrian Belew (Frank Zappa, David Bowie, King Crimson), who plays some furious guitar on “Things Fall Apart; Robert Fripp (King Crimson, David Bowie, Peter Gabriel), who ads voice and guitar synth to “Fripping the Rude Oud”; and Icelandic drummer Siggi Baldursson (The Sugarcubes, Bjork, Reptile Palace Orchestra), who beats his trademark dry ice sound in the brief “Homosexuals & Lesbians.”

Not since dear old Vivian Stanshall and the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band have we had anything as buoyant and pixilated as most of the 20 songs on the new CD. String wizard Biff Blumfumgagnge’s “Crime Scene” – which begins with the line “Don’t you hate it when the toilet’s a crime scene?” – is especially in the Bonzo mold."

Some other important references would include:

Edmonton Tornado[edit]

I removed it because meteorologists and engineers alike have all agreed that the winds associated with the F-scale are very if not completely inaccurate representations of the actual windspeeds needed to cause such damage. Fujita merely applied wind speeds as an educated guess, with the actual purpose of the F-scale to measure damage instead of wind speed (see the article). Very little is known about tornado wind speed at the surface level, however, the Enhanced Fujita Scale is thought to be a big improvement.

Have any more questions? I'll be around. Cheers! -RunningOnBrains 05:19, 23 February 2007 (UTC)

The article looks good (I've only skimmed it, I could give it a more thorough read later). The only problems that you may run into is lack of sources on a few paragraphs. Other than that, well done, I actually remember the old FA version of this article, and you have improved it for sure. -RunningOnBrains 00:48, 26 February 2007 (UTC)

"Jar of Fools" Notability?[edit]

I think I would not have a hard time proving notability of this book, Jar of Fools, but I was wondering what the qualifications are for that. Do I need to cite write-ups in large newspapers? Does it depend on the notability of the creator, Jason Lutes, whos page I also just created? Please let me know. - Stephen Goldmeier | Profile | Talk | (._.) | 02:55, 25 February 2007 (UTC)

Denni- I think the changes I made should be substantial to establish notability on this article. But kudos on the grammar and spelling catches in the article. I am a relatively new Wikipedian, so thanks for your editing help. - Stephen Goldmeier | Profile | Talk | (._.) | 19:38, 25 February 2007 (UTC)

Weather lore's good article nomination is on hold[edit]

Please see the talk page of the article for my suggestions for improvement. Remember that "on hold" status is limited to a week, after which I must pass or fail the article. Good luck! --N Shar (talk contribs) 06:20, 26 February 2007 (UTC)

Weather lore[edit]

I reread the article and it looks good. As I said in the talk page of the article, I will probably pass it at this point, but I need a little more time (< a day) to finish reviewing. Good work!

P. S.: You're right, we do have a lot in common -- even though our userboxes don't overlap much. --N Shar (talk contribs) 20:28, 27 February 2007 (UTC)

Why do you and TelusFielder find it necessary to remove any criticism about Edmonton? I found the entry on nicknames particularly relevant, sans the reference to urban homicide. I believe the city is referred to as Deadmonton more than any of the other nicknames there, so does this perhaps act as an act of censorship due to preference?

This would, in a fashion, add credit to Phillip's argument that we're overly zealous to flaunt out underachievements and afraid to face up to how we're perceived, not only by outsiders but also by critics from within.

Deadmonton[edit]

Sorry about the tildes, I am just using the default features in Wikipedia and it just offers to leave a Talk back, I see no other options.

I believe that the term Deadmonton is well-known across Canada regardless of the article, but the Telegraph article was accurate in its tone and description of our flagrant abuse of self-righteousness.

If you'd grown up in Strathcona, you might be more familiar with Edmonchuk, that it has had a pretty popularised past. Because you're not familiar with it doesn't mean it didn't prosper among other subcultures.

And while conversing with business acquaintances after you're quick removal of the Nicknames post, I received the common response of either: A) It's a widely known term and people from many cities across Canada are more familiar with it than any of the other listed nicknames, and B) one associate I queried in the U.S. stated:

"i got to be honest, i'd never even heard of edmonton before i met you. and i'm kinda "into" international cities and such"

The Telegraph article was popularised, and since this city receives so little international coverage it's a milestone piece and reflects a strong initial impression among a representative of one of the world's leading newspapers. His retraction may have been made, but if so, it is nowhere to be found online as a reference. Working in media myself, if there was a retraction, it may have also been due more to politics with business and the paper and the World Games than it had to do with his actual opinion of the city, as is often the case in those sorts of matters.

Further articles I could further quote here from world-renowned architects further criticise the city for its abundant lack of cultural vernacular and a false sense of civic pride.

My issue isn't with the city, I love Edmonton, but I have a serious problem when I see Edmontonians refusing to listen to criticism. It's further perpetuated when government officials make public claims that we're leaders culturally, artistically, and in other fields when these sorts of claims are hugely laughable by both national and international standards.

I would suggest we work out a common ground where we can accept the name Deadmonton on this Wikipedia page. It's a step towards acknowledging our inadequacy in some areas and a bold move in facing up the challenge of proving that we can take on the challenge of the moniker. Sweeping it under the rug is avoiding the truth that everyone but us seems to see.

Notable usages of the phrase "I love you"[edit]

You (or the deleter) didn't have time to read my hangon explanation on this article. But you can still read it on User_talk:Mafmafmaf#Speedy deletion of Notable usages of the phrase "I love you". Since I don't think it was a fair process (too quick) and made me waste my time writing the explanation (I don't care about the article itself), I will report this behaviour, even if you (or the deleter) just followed the guidelines. Thank you. --maf 00:43, 11 March 2007 (UTC)

542d Crew Training Wing[edit]

While not all military units can be famous, with scandals such as My Lai or Abu Ghraib or maneuvers such as the Left Hook, I have a hard time believing that the 542d deserves a speedy deletion only two minutes after I finished the page. But since it is already so... I'll mirror the above comment - why was it recommended for deletion?TDRSS 03:48, 11 March 2007 (UTC)

Lakeville South High School[edit]

I realize that LSHS may not seem notable right now, the main reason being this year is it's second year in operation. More would have been added to the article, but the school website contains very little of interest and I never went there, so I have little first hand knowledge to add to it. Deleting may make sense, but having an article stub looks better than having the red links all over the place (Lake Conference associated bars). - Mtekk 04:11, 11 March 2007 (UTC)

RobotGenius restored, contesting speedy delete[edit]

Hi Denni, I didn't see the speedy delete req for spam on RobotGenius when it came up. I've restored the article so that we can have a chance to discuss its merits first. In general, it's a good idea to send a note to the creator of an article notifying them about an action like this as a heads-up. If you did notify me, I apologize for missing it. --Zippy 16:15, 14 April 2007 (UTC)

Jason Levine[edit]

A tag has been placed on Jason Levine, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under 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.

Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself. If you plan to expand the article, you can request that administrators wait a while for you to add contextual material. To do this, affix the template {{hangon}} to the article and state your intention on the article's talk page. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. --== Waycool27 ==-- 18:40, 20 August 2007 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:Filth catalyst cover large.jpg)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Filth catalyst cover large.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. BetacommandBot 22:43, 11 October 2007 (UTC)

Sierra Sam (Crash test dummy) image deletion[edit]

Hello. I am User:Nerdi from the german wikipedia.

some pictures you uploaded in the english wikipedia which show "sierra sam", the first crashtest dummy ever, were deleted because of lack of license information, permission etc. my commons talkpage lists some of the images.

We already talked about the topic years ago, (here) and i thought the information you gave would suffice. You answered "I contacted Dr Gary Enever, the author of the article, for permission to use the images. He gave me full permission to use them in any manner I saw fit. I think a gfdl tag would be appropriate, if that's what you want to do. Denni 68.148.192.21 17:39, 24. Mär 2006 (CET)" (here).

Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to satisfy the commons. The deleting admin, user:majorly, asked me to send the explicit permission of the author to permissions-commons @ wikimedia.org, [1]

According to your declaration in march 2006 dr. gary enever should in fact have emitted the images (to be seen here in enever's collection) to the public domain.

Can you give a permission from the author to permissions-commons @ wikimedia.org, to me, or can you otherwise assure the images are anyhow licensed to fit relevant to the commons? I hope so, because there seem to be no other images of this object.

If you wish to answer, please do so here.

Tank you, User:Nerdi (de.wp.) Nerdi 17:15, 24 November 2007 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Crash test dummies in popular culture[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Crash test dummies in popular culture, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process because of the following concern:

While crash test dummies are notable per WP:NOT, crash test dummies in popular culture are not. This article is a combination of original research, repeated rumour, and trivia. WP:NOT, Wikipedia is not an indiscriminate collection of information. Furthermore, article has no references and has been tagged as needing them for over two years.

All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because, even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.

Information.svg Hello Denni! Thank you for your contributions. I am a bot alerting you that 2 of the articles that you created are tagged as Unreferenced Biographies of Living Persons. The biographies of living persons policy requires that all personal or potentially controversial information be sourced. In addition, to ensure verifiability, all biographies should be based on reliable sources. If you were to bring these articles up to standards, it would greatly help us with the current 2,637 article backlog. Once the articles are adequately referenced, please remove the {{unreferencedBLP}} tag. Here is the list:

  1. Claire Lawrence - Find sources: "Claire Lawrence" – news · newspapers · books · scholar · JSTOR · free images · wikipedia library

File source problem with File:Riel-o.png[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thank you for uploading File:Riel-o.png. 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, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, please add a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of that website's terms of use of its content. However, if the copyright holder is a party unaffiliated from the website's publisher, that copyright should also be acknowledged.

If you have uploaded other files, consider verifying that you have specified sources for those files as well. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged per Wikipedia's criteria for speedy deletion, F4. If the image is copyrighted and non-free, the image will be deleted 48 hours after 11:18, 5 May 2010 (UTC) per speedy deletion criterion F7. If you have any questions or are in need of assistance please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 11:18, 5 May 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of File:DwGaillardia1.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on File:DwGaillardia1.jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the image is an unused redundant copy (all pixels the same or scaled down) of an image in the same file format, which is on Wikipedia (not on Commons), and all inward links have been updated.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} 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 hangon 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. nn123645 (talk) 05:33, 10 June 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Edmonton Heritage Festival[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Edmonton Heritage Festival, 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 an encyclopedia article. Please read the guidelines on spam as well as Wikipedia:FAQ/Business for more information. You may also wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles - see the Article Wizard.

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 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 hangon 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. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you.

Dear uploader: The media file you uploaded as File:DWBighornsheep.jpg is missing a description and/or other details on its image description page. If possible, please add this information. This will help other editors to make better use of the image, and it will be more informative for readers.

Suspension of admin privileges due to inactivity[edit]

Following a community discussion in June 2011, consensus was reached to provisionally suspend the administrative privileges of users who have been inactive for one year, meaning administrators who have made neither any edits nor any logged actions in over one year. As a result of this discussion, your administrative privileges have been removed pending your return. If you wish to have these privileges reinstated, please post to the Wikipedia:Bureaucrats' noticeboard and the userright will be restored per the re-sysopping process (i.e., as long as the attending bureaucrats are reasonably satisfied that your account has not been compromised and that your inactivity did not have the effect of evading scrutiny of any actions which might have led to sanctions). This removal of access is procedural only, and not intended to reflect negatively upon you in any way. We wish you the best in future endeavors, and thank you for your past administrative efforts.
