Hi Dogface.

First, one of the Orthodox Church's primary objectives is to Preserve Traditions, not throw them away. Let me remind you that the concept of Tradition with a big or little "T" is pure Roman Catholic Vatican 2 mumbo jumbo and has nothing to do with Orthodoxy even if some modernists would like to adopt such language in order to justify their position.

Second, I realize that in this day and age people seem to have forgotten that the term Men is gender inclusive and refers to all mankind (and Womenkind) but please, couldn't you figure that out for yourself.

Hi, may I call you "Dogface"? ;-) My name is Ed.

We renamed your article because we're mixed case junkies around here: Greek Old Calendarists (Redirected from GREEK OLD CALENDARISTS). --Uncle Ed 19:37, 21 Nov 2003 (UTC)


Nice rewrite of Energies of God! Cheers, Cyan 00:21, 22 Nov 2003 (UTC)


I'd been hoping someone knowledgable would improve the cigar article. I'm glad you did. Cheers, -- Infrogmation 22:55, 10 Dec 2003 (UTC)


I like the joke you contributed to the Celtic Christianity article -- it is so true. But I suggest you try to find an attributable quotation that states that passage, in case someone who does not share our sense of humor objects. -- llywrch 00:01, 12 Dec 2003 (UTC)


Heya. The stuff about Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas that you added to Opus Dei: is there any mainstream report on this? Knowing Opus Dei, and knowing a bit about Thomas and Scalia's politics, I wouldn't be surprised, but some sort of confirmation would be great. --MIRV 20:12, 12 Dec 2003 (UTC)

Just read the above remark, I think :) this user User:Asoane has said sth in the talk page.

(After seeing your edits at Sin). The last one is minor, but the others are not and we may get confused. Not that I care in this case, it is simply easier for the rest of us to treat a chain of edits as one and not mark the last one as minor. Pfortuny 21:53, 15 Dec 2003 (UTC)

Question - You've been here longer than I have, and have made many posts to enterys Catholic in nature. Rbushlow has been editing the Catholic page, first changing "mainstream Christians" to "Protestants" and now just added an unneccecary change. Not to be all uptight about things, but I feel that Rbushlow isn't trying to help or anything, I think he/she is just looking to screw with the Catholic page. What do you recommend I do? - Fission 12:45pm, 15 Jan 2004 (EST)

Also, just for the record, Rbushlow took a chunk out of the Apostolic Succession page and marked it as a minor change. But I cannot tell if the revision was in any way constructive, as I am not well educated about the matters in that page. Fission 17:55, 15 Jan 2004 (UTC)

Edit comments[edit]

Please watch what you say in edit comments. Things like "Corrected blatant anti-American ignorance." are not acceptable here. Our policy page about this is here: Wikipedia:Wikiquette. --mav 22:39, 6 Feb 2004 (UTC)

Rocky Ripple[edit]

Don't know if it's accurate to say they have no legal existence. They have a town council and some other governmental functions: http://www.town.rocky-ripple.in.us/index.htm

Looks to be similar for Wynnedale, Warren Park, Southport, Meridian Hills, Homecroft, Crow's Nest.

Here's relevant info from the Unigov handbook:

Excluded Cities and Towns. The three cities of Beech Grove, Lawrence, and Southport, and the town of Speedway were not annexed into the Consolidated City of Indianapolis. These municipalities are called excluded cities and towns. In addition to voting for the mayors and councils of their respective cities and towns, residents are also able to vote for the Mayor of Indianapolis, plus a City-County Council member, and the four at-large council members. This arrangement was passed because residents are obligated to pay many county-wide taxes and because the powers of the Mayor of Indianapolis extend to the entire county.
Included Towns. There are twelve included towns in Marion County of less than 5,000 population that elected to retain town status as defined by the state constitution. They are, however, included for government purposes in the Consolidated City of Indianapolis.

Link technicalities[edit]

Hello. Just in case you haven't found out in the intervening months: your editing of Oriental Orthodoxy inspires this tip. You don't need to write [[Saint|Saints]], since [[Saint]]s has the same effect. Since the latter form is also instructive to newcomers, I changed it in that article. Michael Hardy 21:24, 18 Jun 2004 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

... for the great work you've been doing on the Romanian Orthodox Church article. Really much appreciated! - irismeister 09:26, 2004 Oct 13 (UTC)

you continue to make the same mistake[edit]

The Moderate Greek Old Calendarists are not schismatic nor do they belong in any way with Old Believers or other breakaway groups. They freely co-celebrate with the Russian Church outside of Russia and commune each other’s faithful. They have numerous parishes, monasteries and convents worldwide. They function fully within the church, not outside it. This is not propaganda, as you put it, but a very real and imminently important witness to what the church is here to provide; a link with the traditions of the church. You don't have to agree, but your insistence on exclusion or misrepresentation is an obvious bias on your part.

Skepticism[edit]

Hi dogface, I would like to help with revision of the page on skepticism. As a new user, im not sure how you usually go about this. Should we agree on a method (revising the whole thing from top to bottom?) or should I just do what seems right to me? Keep up the good work! --Sextus 17:06, 12 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Article Licensing[edit]

Hi, I've started a drive to get users to multi-license all of their contributions that they've made to either (1) all U.S. state, county, and city articles or (2) all articles, using the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike (CC-by-sa) v1.0 and v2.0 Licenses or into the public domain if they prefer. The CC-by-sa license is a true free documentation license that is similar to Wikipedia's license, the GFDL, but it allows other projects, such as WikiTravel, to use our articles. 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. Over 90% of people asked have agreed. For More Information:

To allow us to track those users who muli-license their contributions, many users copy and paste the "{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}" template into their user page, but there are 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 what you think at my talk page. It's important to know either way so no one keeps asking. -- Ram-Man (comment| talk)

Corrine Brown[edit]

Please don't add dumb jokes to articles, it's vandalism (and annoying). --Cuchullain 22:59, 14 December 2005 (UTC)

Evolution vs. Distortion[edit]

I agree with you entirely on this. However, there seem to be several Greek editors who consider (completely unhistorically) that the ethnic meaning of 'Hellene' is eternal and unchangeable. There was a small discussion of this on the Talk page which you might want to join. --Macrakis 21:46, 16 December 2005 (UTC)

It is undisputed that "Hellene" in some contexts at least came to mean "pagan" as opposed to "Christian". The question is whether this is a "distortion". It is only a 'distortion' if you believe words have (or should have) inherent meanings, and perhaps that ethnic identity is (or should be) stable and unchanging across time and space.
I don't know anything about Erasmian pronunciation being used for Liturgical Greek. Are you saying that there exist denominations (English Orthodox???) which use a Greek liturgy but with an Erasmian pronunciation? I've never heard of such a thing, and don't know who that would be. --Macrakis 19:40, 19 December 2005 (UTC)

Saint Metrophanes[edit]

Hi there. As one of the participants in the Saints WikiProject could you perhaps take a look at Saint Metrophanes. There are contradictions on the page and I haven't been able to find a good solid source to base a factual article on in my admittedly rather quick web search. I have no special knowledge of this subject and only came to the article in order to fix a dead external link but had to stay around to clear up some of the mess. Can you help? --Spondoolicks 12:26, 23 January 2006 (UTC)

Jyllands-Posten Muhammad cartoons controversy[edit]

I understand from the article on this controversy that you feel strongly about this issue. So do I, and we probably agree with each other on this issue. But it is essential that we maintain a neutral point of view. It is unnecessary and irrelevant to mention what didn't happen in other cases which is happening now. This adds an irrelevant point of view to the articles. If you feel this strongly about it, I suggest you write a blog entry about the controversy (perhaps you already have), but I would like to ask you to be as rational as possible when it comes to this controversy, and not to add the references you have added several times today. Yours, Aecis Mr. Mojo risin' 13:33, 3 February 2006 (UTC)

I see where you stand, but I disagree with you on the consequences, motivations and implications behind not mentioning the lack of response of others in similar cases. I think your view would be akin to mentioning the number of victims in the Gulag in an article about the Holocaust to show that the Nazis weren't the only mass murderers in that particular timeframe in European history. You seem to believe that not mentioning the response of other groups would create an air of moral equivalency of "the excessive, intolerant, and narrowmindedness of Muslim response." This contrasts/conflicts with the neutral point of view. It is not up to an encyclopedia to talk of excessiveness, intolerance or narrowmindedness. An encyclopedia article about this controversy should contain facts about related events, but it should not come to a moral conclusion by comparison. Aecis Mr. Mojo risin' 16:05, 3 February 2006 (UTC)

Calm down, Dogface, please. I never said anything like that. I said that it doesn't belong in an article that is not about those events. It is a fact that George W. Bush is the current president of the United States, but that fact in itself doesn't belong in an article about George Washington (only in a template listing all the presidents). Please don't put words into my mouth. Aecis Mr. Mojo risin' 16:27, 3 February 2006 (UTC)

Now you're being absurd. You have again been putting words into my mouth. If you decide to reply to this post in an equally absurd way, I consider this discussion closed. I will explain it once more, and I hope that you won't look for ulterior motives. An article about an event should only contain verifiable facts directly related to that events. The response of other people or other groups in other places at other moments in time to other stimuli (I can't think of a better word than stimuli at the moment) is irrelevant, and the way you wrote it in the article is unencyclopedic. You made it clear that you wanted to juxtapose the current response in the muslim world to earlier responses by jewish groups and individuals. That may be up to a blog or an op-ed to decide, but not to an encyclopedia. An encyclopedia should remain as neutral and objective as possible, and not think in terms of excessiveness, intolerance and narrowmindedness. If you want to discuss this civilly and maturely, then you are more then welcome. If you want to continue your inane rhetoric, then don't bother. Aecis Mr. Mojo risin' 19:51, 3 February 2006 (UTC)

your recent addition[edit]

Hi Dogface. Nobody doubts the sources are real. It's just that a simgle opinion of a single protester somwhere doesn't qualify as important enough to make it into the first paragraph, which tries hard to remain short. I think your link is also already in the timeline. Pls. Remove the comments, if you can agree to this Azate 21:43, 6 February 2006 (UTC)

Scottish Regiments[edit]

As I indicated on the talk page for Category:Scottish Regiments, I thought that Highland Regiments were different from Scottish Regiments, the latter being synonymous with Lowland Scots units, wearing trews. Highlanders wore the kilt, recruited in the Highlands (or patterned themselves after units that were). There was a divide between Highlanders and Lowlanders in the Scottish Division before the recent amalgamations; I stil have my Highland tie - in green - purchased at the Infantry Depot of the Scottish Div in 1990; Lowlanders had blue. So I'm not at all positive "Scottish regiments" is apt, especially since most of them are Canadian in nationality. Perhaps "Highland" would be better.Michael Dorosh 19:03, 8 March 2006 (UTC)

Gordon Highlanders[edit]

Hi there! I noticed you cut and pasted the content of The Gordon Highlanders to the redirect page at Gordon Highlanders. Cut and paste moves are strongly frowned upon, as it loses the history of previous edits. For information on how to move pages, please see Wikipedia:Moving pages and Wikipedia:Requested moves. Thanks. SoLando (Talk) 19:02, 10 March 2006 (UTC)

Aztlan[edit]

Regarding your latest edits to Aztlán: The article reads much better. However, one of your edit summaries read "Converted first section from gibberish to something closer to actual English." I just wanted to ask you to be a little more sensitive because many of the editors here, especially on topics outside the English-speaking world, do not speak English as a first language and rely on us native speakers to refine their verbiage. We just don't want to be rude and discourage people who make positive contributions. Thanks again for your efforts, --Rockero 16:44, 11 April 2006 (UTC)

Preventing an edit war on the saints[edit]

It was the established operation of the WikiProject Saints to have a section in the info box on a sample prayer. Some editors have been recently been attacking this in the individual articles.

It is my belief that prayers in a literary or historic context are NPOV. I can understand that some may consider the inclusion of a prayer to be hagiographic, but freedom of religion is not freedom from religion.

There is a 3RR about to happen on a number of these articles. I am trying to be philosophical about this, but don’t want to yield the point when what is happening goes against the consensus and borders on vandalism.

It is my understanding that if an editing disagreement occurs that the status quo, in this case leaving the prayers in place, holds until it is resolved. I encourage you to comment on this at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Saints. I have posted my thoughts at the village pump.

Justification article[edit]

Hi,

I noticed that you appeared in the edit history of the justification (theology) article. I recently made major changes to the article in an effort to move it to NPOV. If you have any suggestions for improvement (style, content, whatever), please leave a comment on the talk page for that article. The goal is to get the article to the point that the POV and cleanup templates can be removed.

Thanks, --jrcagle 20:18, 3 May 2006 (UTC)

Vagina[edit]

Thank you for your attempts to improve Wikipedia. However, I would like to remind you that Wikipedia is not censored for minors, not even for profanity or pornography. You are welcome to remove clearly offensive material or inappropriate obscenities, but please do not remove/censor profanities or remove/disclaim sexually explicit material or links that are relevant to the article. In the meantime, please be bold and continue contributing to Wikipedia. Thank you! Lag 22:39, 5 May 2006 (UTC)

Passover (Christian holiday)[edit]

I've given up on that particular article, which seems to exist only to push the POV of groups that now use a Quartodeciman observance. (I think that would be Seventh Day Adventists and a few others.) I pointed out the problem with Schaff in that particular passage a while ago on the talk page, but there's no getting through to them. TCC (talk) (contribs) 21:00, 26 May 2006 (UTC)

Liberal Eugenics article's See also section[edit]

According to a Wikipedia rule of thumb: 1) if something is in See also, try to incorporate it into main body 2) if something is in main body, it should not be in see also and therefore 3) good articles have no See also sections. --Loremaster 20:56, 23 August 2006 (UTC)

A tag has been placed on Academy Plus, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article 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 Wikipedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not assert notability may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, and if you can indicate why the subject of this article is notable, 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. —Pilotguy (ptt) 21:31, 19 January 2007 (UTC)

Thanks – Qxz 15:00, 27 February 2007 (UTC)

Sorry, wrong page. Something got mixed up there. What I was actually referring to is this edit to Orgy, in which you removed most of the article without explanation. Thanks – Qxz 19:01, 27 February 2007 (UTC)
Either delete the first paragraph of the Orgy page or move the group sex material to the Group sex page. As it stands, "Orgy" and "group sex" are far too redundant to deserve separate pages. I was being helpful by increasing the uniqueness of each page.Dogface 19:03, 27 February 2007 (UTC)
That's fine. Feel free to reinstate the edit, but this time provide an edit summary, so that people understand your intentions.

Survey Request[edit]

Hi,
I need your help. I am working on a research project at Boston College, studying creation of medical information on Wikipedia. You are being contacted, because you have been identified as an important contributor to one or more articles.

Would you will be willing to answer a few questions about your experience? We've done considerable background research, but we would also like to gather the insight of the actual editors. Details about the project can be found at the user page of the project leader, geraldckane. Survey questions can be found at geraldckane/medsurvey. Your privacy and confidentiality will be strictly protected!

The questions should only take a few minutes. I hope you will be willing to complete the survey, as we do value your insight. Please do not hesitate to contact me or Professor Kane if you have any questions.

Thank You, Sam4bc (talk) 22:45, 7 July 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Ulsterman (cocktail)[edit]

Please refrain from introducing inappropriate pages, such as Ulsterman (cocktail), to Wikipedia. Doing so is not in accordance with our policies. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox.

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. E. Fokker (talk) 01:40, 24 December 2010 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Alex Collier[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

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

This article does not seem to meet WP:N. Additionally, it appears to use unreliable sources and is either a hoax or about a hoaxer, which takes us back to WP:N.

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.

Article Feedback Tool update[edit]

Hey Dogface. I'm contacting you because you're involved in the Article Feedback Tool in some way, either as a previous newsletter recipient or as an active user of the system. As you might have heard, a user recently anonymously disabled the feedback tool on 2,000 pages. We were unable to track or prevent this due to the lack of logging feature in AFT5. We're deeply sorry for this, as we know that quite a few users found the software very useful, and were using it on their articles.

We've now re-released the software, with the addition of a logging feature and restrictions on the ability to disable. Obviously, we're not going to automatically re-enable it on each article—we don't want to create a situation where it was enabled by users who have now moved on, and feedback would sit there unattended—but if you're interested in enabling it for your articles, it's pretty simple to do. Just go to the article you want to enable it on, click the "request feedback" link in the toolbox in the sidebar, and AFT5 will be enabled for that article.

Again, we're very sorry about this issue; hopefully it'll be smooth sailing after this :). If you have any questions, just drop them at the talkpage. Thanks! Okeyes (WMF) 21:49, 1 September 2013 (UTC)

His Dark Materials … Dust[edit]

Hello

I understand why you might have amended HDM Dust, but feel that your change doesn't help solve the problems of this page, which to my mind are 1)that the page has far too much generalised pseudo-philosophical/scientific etc. speculation, and 2)that it is wholly reliant on the opinions of one writer (Leonard Wheat), which it treats as though they are established FACTS about the book, rather than stating that these are only his opinions.

As far as I am concerned, since this is about a work of fiction, the page should only contain 'facts WITHIN the story' and credited theories from established scholars. I would greatly appreciate any help to try to clean it up. There is some discussion on the talk page.Pincrete (talk) 18:20, 3 November 2013 (UTC)

History of Freemasonry in Russia[edit]

The article seriously needed material on the post-perestroika revival of Freemasonry in Russia, thanks for getting the ball rolling. I just tried to add a reference, and noticed that the Grand Lodge of Russia site is down. I also note that the news bit on the United Grand Lodge of Russia site hasn't been updated since 2010. This isn't usually a good sign. Do you know anything about the current state of Freemasonry in Russia? I'm back to guessing. Fiddlersmouth (talk) 22:40, 14 June 2014 (UTC)
