About Me[edit]

I'm a hobby writer, blogger and wiki editor. I'm addicted to research and my educational background is in music composition and theater performance and direction.

I currently reside in Seattle, WA.

Please feel free to exercise your right to expression by leaving me a comment, suggestion, or whatever! Please don't be too vulgar.....;)

Welcome[edit]

Hello and welcome to Wikipedia. Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are a few good links for newcomers:

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! By the way, you can sign your name on Talk and vote pages using three tildes, like this: ~~~. Four tildes (~~~~) produces your name and the current date. If you have any questions, see the help pages, add a question to the village pump or ask me on my talk page. Again, welcome!

Completely agree[edit]

Your story is very familiar to me. It's very easy to get sucked into heated, ongoing debates between people with axes to grind. I've cut back on my Wikipedia editing recently, because I've got some serious family matters going on, but even before that I was getting exhausted by the unending nature of Wikipedia. Fortunately, the distributed nature of the wiki model means that there's usually someone else who can step into the breach when it gets too much for you. Use your judgment and edit Wikipedia only if and when it seems productive to you.

For what it's worth, it looks like those POV categories have been scrubbed from the Obama article. There are, as you suggest, many POV pushers at work there and on related pages; but there are also hard-working editors who are dedicated to the NPOV ideal, and they tend to win out in the long run. —Josiah Rowe (talkcontribs) 22:35, 4 June 2008 (UTC)

David Edmondson speedy deletion declined[edit]

In no wise meets WP:CSD, let alone deletion as an attack page. Would recommend finding sources and adding them to the article as well as consensus seeking through discussion with other editors as to how to balance the article and improvement. Certainly with the volume and quality that could arise from from successfully balancing the good and the bad, if well sourced, could have potential for a good article. Improvement is always preferable to deletion. Cheers, Dlohcierekim 14:50, 21 December 2008 (UTC)

I have added some references, but they are removed as soon as I add them (please check the history) so I'm tempted to give up. Sorry guys. -- Patrick, 31 January 2009

Michigan[edit]

I agree that the "troll" reference doesn't belong in the opening paragraphs, but with your edit you removed the material entirely from the article. Unless you think it's unencyclopedic and not worthy of inclusion at all, don't you think it would be better to try and find a suitable place in the body for it? (Especially if you're marking the edit 'minor'.) Thoughts? JohnInDC (talk) 18:56, 2 June 2009 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for File:77band.jpg[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:77band.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file 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 file 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 '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 media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Skier Dude (talk 02:07, 8 October 2010 (UTC)
