Still's MD[edit]

Hi, If you have any reliable source that states that Still had an MD or a DO, please let me know and add it to his biography too. It seems that he actually trained by apprenticeship and never gained formal qualifications. Thanks, Verbal chat 14:57, 4 November 2008 (UTC)

He only had an MD. I meant to take the DO out. Dumaka (talk) 14:59, 4 November 2008 (UTC)
What is the source for this? We haven't been able to find a good source for him having an MD on his biography page. Verbal chat 15:11, 4 November 2008 (UTC)
It's on the ATSU website. Dumaka (talk) 18:13, 4 November 2008 (UTC )

A.T. Still's MD[edit]

Verbal, Dumaka, the history of medical practice in the late 1800's is quite fascinating. Practicing under another physician as an apprentice was the formal qualification for M.D. and the medical profession was struggling to establish formal qualifications. A. T. Still was an M.D., formally, by the standards of the time, but he struggled against the misconceptions of common medical treatment and eventually established Osteopathic Medicine. He was an MD; the museum says they have copies of the medical licenses for Adair and Macon counties of Missouri; and he was awarded the D.O. from the Trustees of American School of Osteopathy in 1897. It would be some work to properly cite all of these facts, but the American Osteopathic Association, http://www.osteopathic.org/index.cfm?PageID=ost_still, starts with Andrew Taylor Still, M.D., D.O.... —Preceding unsigned comment added by Stevecalloway (talkcontribs) 13:10, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

Hi :) Can I ask where you got that picture of her? A URL, maybe? There is none in the "source" part of the fair use rationale table. Thanks. The no erz (talk) 07:55, 14 December 2008 (UTC)

User Page[edit]

  • I just wanted to state that you have a very interesting user page, and that we need more editors like yourself here. I also agree with your stated viewpoints on your user page, but that is another story. That is all I have to say, and keep up the good work! The Scythian 08:18, 14 January 2009 (UTC)

Question Reply[edit]

Yes because that is part of the steps for removing vandalism. Stop putting non neutral points of view on articles and I won't undo your edits.
Please sign your comments so I will know who you are in the future. I'm not adding NPOV on articles. All information has been comfirmed by the person in question himself. You're the one adding POV edits on all of Rick Ross articles. I haven't vandalised anything. Dumaka (talk) 12:58, 24 March 2009 (UTC)
They aren't point of view idiot. If you read the sources, those are his actual quotes. You are only offering one side because you don't feel he measures up to some form of gangster. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Lithium72990 (talkcontribs) 13:05, 24 March 2009 (UTC)
Once again sign your post! And second, please reframe from calling me names. If you can't conduct an argument in a civil manner I will report you. Third, I could quote all the things 50 Cent has said about Rick Ross but that would be considered Bias. Stop adding bias information and I'll stop countering your edits with bias sources. Dumaka (talk) 13:09, 24 March 2009 (UTC)
First off he isn't speaking on 50, he is speaking on what happened. Second, he is offering a different perspective. Using quotes isn't bias, it is promoted in the rules. Using slang isn't, however, neither is not capitalizing titles correctly, or not citing sources correctly which is why I undid your edit. If you're going to list Ross as a fraud you should also list every other rapper. Do you not see how that is bias. --Lithium72990 (talk) 13:19, 24 March 2009 (UTC)
I was just using 50 Cent as an example. This has nothing to do with their feud. If you want to add quotes to his page then I will also being to use quotes. If we keep this up, his article will become nothing but a conversation on feuds. By the way, he is a fraud that is why I added that information. It's known fact. Dumaka (talk) 13:24, 24 March 2009 (UTC)
Go ahead and add quotes, it is fine. just expand on the information with the quotes like I did. Saying that someone lawyer said they aren't "gangsta" isn't in fact the entire story. You didn't even introduce the situation or the lawyer for that matter.--Lithium72990 (talk) 13:27, 24 March 2009 (UTC)
OK. But you may not like the information I put into this article. No matter how true it may be. Dumaka (talk) 13:29, 24 March 2009 (UTC)
Okay.--Lithium72990 (talk) 13:32, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

WP:Hornbook -- a new WP:Law task force for the J.D. curriculum[edit]

Hi Dumaka,

I'm asking Wikipedians who are interested in United States legal articles to take a look at WP:Hornbook, the new "JD curriculum task force".

Our mission is to assimilate into Wikipedia all the insights of an American law school education, by reducing hornbooks to footnotes.

  • Over the course of a semester, each subpage will shift its focus to track the unfolding curriculum(s) for classes using that casebook around the country.
  • It will also feature an extensive, hyperlinked "index" or "outline" to that casebook, pointing to pages, headers, or {{anchors}} in Wikipedia (example).
  • Individual law schools can freely adapt our casebook outlines to the idiosyncratic curriculum devised by each individual professor.
  • I'm encouraging law students around the country to create local chapters of the club I'm starting at my own law school, "Student WP:Hornbook Editors". Using WP:Hornbook as our headquarters, we're hoping to create a study group so inclusive that nobody will dare not join.

What you can do now:

1. Add WP:Hornbook to your watchlist, {{User Hornbook}} to your userpage, and ~~~~ to Wikipedia:Hornbook/participants.
2. If you're a law student,
(You don't have to start the club, or even be involved in it; just help direct me to someone who might.)
3. Introduce yourself to me. Law editors on Wikipedia are a scarce commodity. Do knock on my talk page if there's an article you'd like help on.

Regards, Andrew Gradman talk/WP:Hornbook 04:14, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

Stay Cool[edit]

Information.svg Please do not attack other editors, as you did at Talk:Constitution Party (United States). Comment on content, not on contributors. Personal attacks damage the community and deter users. Please stay cool and keep this in mind while editing. Thank you.Niteshift36 (talk) 14:01, 8 September 2009 (UTC)

I didn't personally attack you. You are a conservative aren't you? There is nothing wrong with being a conservative you know.Dumaka (talk) 14:02, 8 September 2009 (UTC)
  • I am a conservative........but what you said was "typical conservative". Think stereotype. The template fits, if you read it, because you were commenting on the editor, not the content. Your response had nothing to do with the content at all, then added your personal stereotype. If you want to address the issue, wonderful. Niteshift36 (talk)
Alright. I did "stereotype" you. My apologies. Dumaka (talk) 14:12, 8 September 2009 (UTC)

Grammar[edit]

I believe you mean "photos", not "photo's" in your questions on Talk:Borg (Star Trek). See correct apostrophe use and incorrect apostrophe use for details. Toddst1 (talk) 17:32, 17 January 2010 (UTC)

Another mistake on my part but thank you once again for pointing that out to everyone.Dumaka (talk) 19:29, 17 January 2010 (UTC)
Given that you "believe only the most intelligent should run the country", "everyone should have to pass a logics/government/history test in order to have the right to vote" and "that only those who have a college education should be called up for jury duty", I thought you'd appreciate knowing that. Toddst1 (talk) 19:43, 17 January 2010 (UTC)

Please read up on the WP:3RR, as ThinkEnemies has only reverted twice, which only puts them halfway to a violation. --SarekOfVulcan (talk) 18:19, 18 November 2010 (UTC)

I was working under the assumpion that he was going to revert my edits one last time. Dumaka (talk) 18:21, 18 November 2010 (UTC)
...which still wouldn't have been a violation. You might also want to read up on WP:AGF. --SarekOfVulcan (talk) 18:24, 18 November 2010 (UTC)
He wasn't assuming good faith, he just decided to start reverting all my edits regardless of the fact that they were sourced. Dumaka (talk) 18:27, 18 November 2010 (UTC)
  • "[H]e just decided to start reverting all my edits regardless of the fact that they were sourced."

That's just not true. I reverted your opinion that "his claims were not backed up by any factual data." I also restored the term "opined." Do you have a problem with that revert? I really could care less about my partial quote addition, though, I believe it's a good zinger. ;-) TETalk 19:11, 18 November 2010 (UTC)

It wasn't my opinion, it was fact, if you even bothered to check the reference. Also, you could have been professional and responded on the talk page. Dumaka (talk) 02:34, 19 November 2010 (UTC)
Patently false. TETalk 17:26, 19 November 2010 (UTC)
No it wasn't Dumaka (talk) 18:18, 19 November 2010 (UTC)
Well, let's just agree to disagree that:
1) An economist, professor, and former director of the CBO doesn't back up his expert opinion with factual data.
2) It's not your own personal opinion that his OP-ED lacked factual data.
TETalk 18:27, 19 November 2010 (UTC)
If he had factual data then please present it. The fact that he is the president of American Action Forum which is a conservative think tank. And the fact that he was the economic adviser to John McCain gives you no indication of his obvious bias? Not to mention that he's been on Fox News bitching about the healthcare bill continuously. Please stop arguing because you've lost. Dumaka (talk) 18:55, 19 November 2010 (UTC)

RE: Embrya[edit]

There's no reason to get into an edit war over this. Removing all the less flattering reviews from the article seems POV driven, and you cannot remove a source simply because you disagree with its point of view (WP:TRUTH). Please consider using the talk page if there is a valid reason behind this. Dan56 (talk) 18:25, 16 July 2013 (UTC)

You're one putting POV citations in this article by saying the album was panned by music critics based on ONE review. Dumaka (talk) 18:27, 16 July 2013 (UTC)
It's not a review, it's a profile of Maxwell by a reputed magazine source. You should use the edit summaries to explain your edit, not make threats, and use the talk page to further explain it. (Wikipedia:Civility#Avoiding_incivility) Frankly, if I revert you, it wouldn't be in violation of 3RR, unless I revert you again. If you force the issue and revert me again, I'll easily be able to solicit comments from an admin or two, who will not side with unexplained, massive removal of content that happens to be negative reviews of the article's topic. Please consider reverting yourself if you don't plan on explaining that removal anytime soon. Dan56 (talk) 18:34, 16 July 2013 (UTC)
If you took a look at what I was doing instead of reverting everything you'd see that I edited that portion of the article and put in back on the page. I made no threats and I did explain every edit I did. And, yes if you do revert me again you will be in violation. Next time wait until I finish my edits before you get all salty with the issue. And I don't need you lecturing me on the rules of Wiki.Dumaka (talk) 18:37, 16 July 2013 (UTC)
You threatened to report me for making as many reverts as you had. And you have not restored what was appropriately cited in the article, even Robert Christgau's consumer guide, which clearly references the title Embrya. This clearly does not support what you are telling me. I understand; you do not agree with what a source says, but removing it simply because you disagree with it is against Wikipedia policy and will not be tolerated. You did not mention a valid reason as to why this should be removed (apart from you disagreeing with it) in any of your edit summaries, but you have one, please consider using the article's talk page to explain it. Otherwise, your edits did not appear to improve the article at all, and I'll have to revert them. I don't understand your tone; this matter can simply be resolved by discussing it at the talk page. Dan56 (talk) 18:44, 16 July 2013 (UTC)
I am on the talk page. You're the one who added all that negative feedback on this page in the first. Why? I don't know, maybe you just hate the album or something. Your edit do nothing for the article but ridicule it. And judging by the edit history, you've reverted every single edit by everyone on that article. Nice to know I'm not the only one you're harassing. Dumaka (talk) 18:47, 16 July 2013 (UTC)

July 2013[edit]

Information icon Welcome to Wikipedia. At least one of your recent edits, such as the edit you made to Embrya, did not appear to be constructive and has been reverted or removed. Although everyone is welcome to contribute to Wikipedia, please take some time to familiarise yourself with our policies and guidelines. You can find information about these at the welcome page which also provides further information about contributing constructively to this encyclopedia. If you only meant to make some test edits, please use the sandbox for that. Thank you. Teammm talk
email
21:25, 16 July 2013 (UTC)

In what way was my edit nonconstructive? Dumaka (talk) 21:26, 16 July 2013 (UTC)
First, you're engaged in edit war over the content in the article. Apparently, you feel as though the criticism of the album was not satisfying to you, so you attempted to delete a significant amount of adequately sourced material. Your removal of that content was unjustified because after reviewing the nature of those sources, the information in the article was well-documented. I'm not an editor of that article but as far as I can tell, this particular album was criticized heavily when it was released. Instead of constantly changing the article over disputes, use the talk page...it's easier. I just reverted an edit of yours where you repeated a line in the article that was just above it. Remember, the lead section is a summary of the whole article. It wasn't necessary to have your addition in two separate sections at all, let alone adjacent to one another. It was not constructive. Neutrality calls for a fair balance of the material, that is not to say that treating insignificant viewpoints as more than appropriate is justifiable. If the majority of sources from music critics treat the album as good, but lacking...then it is not our job to sugarcoat the content to make it sound better to our own liking. There are some positive critiques I'm sure that can be added. Teammm talk
email
21:43, 16 July 2013 (UTC)
If you took a look at my other edits would you see I added the criticism of the album back into the article after I had made them more balanced and removed sources that were not found or dead links. I didn't remove any major content, it was all put back into the article after I was done editing it. If certain other editor had not been reverting my edits before I could finish, it wouldn't have appeared that way.Dumaka (talk) 21:49, 16 July 2013 (UTC)
That may be the case, I haven't looked through the whole editing history but an editor watching that article wouldn't know your intentions, especially if you do not explain what you're doing in the edit summary. It's always better, if you're doing a significant change to the article, that you get your content together in the sandbox first. It saves you the hassle of dealing with the aftermath of removing huge portions of material that other editors may find odd or objectionable. Also, as far as the removal of dead links, a lot of the time those references can be found in archives and can be repaired. It is not necessary to delete those right away as the content is still good and was sourced. Deleting is not always appropriate. Teammm talk
email
22:03, 16 July 2013 (UTC)
OK, thanks for the tip. I usually use a word document but that other editor was reverting my edits so fast I couldn't explain or keep up with what I was trying to finish.
He's not being truthful. He removed references that were all active and appropriately cited, contrary to his edit summaries ([1], [2]). I've addressed this several times at the talk page, and also recommended he use a sandbox, but he was less polite in his response to me. And four minutes in between my two reverts (before I took it to the talk page; yours and the article's) is hardly a record-breaking pace. Dan56 (talk) 22:10, 16 July 2013 (UTC)
That is a complete lie and you know it. You know I re-added the content I removed after I finished editing. I only removed content that was POV and didn't give balance to the article. That second edit summary you provided was a dead link btw. But what does it matter, I'm not going to touch the article anymore. You win.... have a nice day. Happy? Dumaka (talk) 22:13, 16 July 2013 (UTC)
Diffs and edit history don't lie. And if you think that was a dead link, you clearly haven't heard of Harvard-style referencing for book sources. But who cares about sources, let's just cut down, cherry-pick, and rearrange the article I largely wrote to suit our own point of view. You didn't remove the LA times and USA Today reviews I added, now did you? Dan56 (talk) 22:23, 16 July 2013 (UTC)
I GIVE UP! Go the f#@& away please.Dumaka (talk) 22:25, 16 July 2013 (UTC)

An exciting month of wiki events![edit]

Hello there,

I am pleased to say that April will be a very exciting month for Wikipedia in Washington, DC. We have a lot of different events coming up, so you will have a lot to choose from.

First, a reminder that our second annual Women in the Arts Edit-a-Thon will take place on Sunday, March 30 at the National Museum of Women in the Arts.

Coming up in April, we have our first-ever Open Government WikiHack with the Sunlight Foundation on April 5–6! We are working together to use open government data to improve the Wikimedia projects, and we would love your help. All are welcome, regardless of coding or editing experience. We will also be having a happy hour the day before, with refreshments courtesy of the Sunlight Foundation.

On Friday, April 11 we are having our first edit-a-thon ever with the Library of Congress. The Africa Collection Edit-a-Thon will focus on the Library's African and Middle East Reading Room. It'll be early in the morning, but it's especially worth it if you're interested in improving Wikipedia's coverage of African topics.

The following day, we are having our second annual Wiki Loves Capitol Hill training. We will discuss policy issues relevant to Wikimedia and plan for our day of outreach to Congressional staffers that will take place during the following week.

There are other meetups in the works, so be sure to check our meetup page with the latest. I hope to see you at some of these events!

All the best,
James Hare
