Ambrose Bierce and Blanche Partington[edit]

Hi, Thanks for the kind comments about the Blanche Partington page. It's nice to know these pages on obscure literary figures are occasionally useful. Actually, I did come across a nice page with some surprisingly extensive transcriptions of Ambrose Bierce's letters to Partington. Perhaps you might find some way to use them in the Bierce page?--Icuc2 (talk) 15:10, 25 October 2010 (UTC) http://donswaim.com/bierce.leon.day-6.html —Preceding unsigned comment added by Icuc2 (talkcontribs) 15:12, 25 October 2010 (UTC)

Nice edit, should do the trick, I think.--Icuc2 (talk) 12:49, 5 November 2010 (UTC)

Chu Berry[edit]

A citation has been added. In my opinion, info re. the so-called "Chu Berry saxophone" should stay where it is because it's so much easier to find it via Google or other search-engines. The info may not seem particularly relevant to you in its current location, but people out there who play the saxophone (or buy/sell them) talk regularly (and often inaccurately) re. which type of sax he played. A huge myth has built up which should be dispelled in the interests of accuracy, and the reputation of Chu Berry himself. To illustrate the degree of confusion and misinformation that's out there re. so-called Chu Berry saxophones, take a look at the current crop of eBay listings. These are all live listings as of 1st January 2011. Note how they are all described as Chu Berry saxophones. Now for the punch-line:- none of them is the same type of sax that he played. Some of them are altos, whereas Berry played tenor exclusively. What you see here is just the tip of the iceberg:-

Bruno Adler[edit]

Thanks for your catch on his birthplace. I often go back and check wikilinks with the original German article I'm picking up, but I don't do all of them and (obviously) this was not one of them. Marrante (talk) 09:06, 2 November 2011 (UTC)

Deletion discussion about Samuel B. Thomsen[edit]

Hello, DutchmanInDisguise, and thanks for contributing to Wikipedia!

I wanted to let you know that some editors are discussing at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Samuel B. Thomsen whether the article Samuel B. Thomsen should be in Wikipedia. I encourage you to comment there if you think the article should be kept in the encyclopedia.

The deletion discussion doesn't mean you did something wrong. In fact, other editors may have useful suggestions on how you can continue editing and improving Samuel B. Thomsen, which I encourage you to do. If you have any questions, feel free to ask at the Help Desk.

Thanks again for your contributions! Night of the Big Wind talk 22:38, 18 November 2011 (UTC)

What did you think about the deletion notice you received?[edit]

Hi DutchmanInDisguise,

In November you received a message about either "Nomination for deletion" or "Proposed deletion" of an article you created. I'd like to ask you a few quick questions:

  1. Was the message helpful? Were the instructions clear and easy to follow?
  2. If not, how do you think the message could be improved?
  3. What do you think about the deletion process in general? Do you understand how to contest a deletion?

You can feel free to answer on my talk page or send me your response by email (mpinchuk@wikimedia.org). (I won't quote you or link your answers to your username if you don't feel comfortable with that.) Your feedback is incredibly useful for improving the content of deletion notifications, so please take a minute to think about and answer these questions. Thank you! Maryana (WMF) (talk) 23:43, 17 February 2012 (UTC)

Thank you![edit]

Thanks for your feedback on deletion notices, and for helping us better understand the deletion process from the point of view of new Wikipedians! Maryana (WMF) (talk) 23:45, 24 February 2012 (UTC)

Great job![edit]

Great job on the List of saxophonists page. I see you've been adding a lot of saxophonists, and I was wondering, could you perhaps add some more classical saxophonists? It would be much appreciated.

Keep up the good work :) Saxophilist (talk) 22:57, 24 June 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for noticing[edit]

Hi DiD,

Thanks for noticing my work on Sonny Criss - It's nice to get acknowledgement. I figure that if every album by some talentless individual gets an article on Wikipedia then some of the lesser jazz lights, like Sonny Criss, should get some recognition in perpetuity. DISEman (talk) 05:21, 10 September 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for noticing II[edit]

It's always nice to see an edit summary describing "a link to a fine new article", and realise that it refers to your own work. You may be pleased to learn that it was your addition, on 21 October 2012, of a link in the Messiaen article to the French Wikipedia item on the Quatre études de rythme that prompted me to write the new English version. So, sometimes you drop a pebble into a pond and watch the ripples slowly expand outward in widening concentric circle until, unexpectedly, a hulking great crocodile leaps out of the water and comes straight at you!—Jerome Kohl (talk) 22:11, 28 October 2012 (UTC)

Bob Kelley[edit]

I received your message. But the question is, why are you putting ME to the test? Why do you want to test me? I don't like to be tested but your answer for Bob Kelley; if you look up List of Atlanta Braves broadcasters, it shows its name there under former announcers and I guarentee you that it's there and that is my evidence. So please don't put me to the test again. Thank you. Ashbeckjonathan (talk)

What was this all about?

Forgiveness[edit]

Thanks and I forgive you. I told you that Bob Kelley was a Milwaukee Brave broadcaster. --Ashbeckjonathan (talk) 20:40, 9 March 2013 (UTC)

Bob Kelley yet again[edit]

(I've removed my lengthy comment from 11 April 2013 which formerly appeared here.) Please see Bob Kelley's article and his talk page for the continuing story of my progress and problems in writing about the former Rams announcer. I have since gone to work on adding information to the article of a contemporary of Bob's – Jim Murray (sportswriter), which I hope will also be of interest to L. A. sports fans. DutchmanInDisguise (talk) 14:30, 18 April 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know[edit]

Thanks for letting me know! Maybe you should create the page Bob Kelly (braves announcer)! Ashbeckjonathan (talk) 20:20, 11 April 2013 (UTC)

No[edit]

I do not live in Oshkosh, I live in Laona, Wisconsin and I can try looking up Blaine Walsh if you want me to. Ashbeckjonathan (talk) 12:55, 12 April 2013 (UTC)

Blaine Walsh[edit]

It's no use looking up Blaine Walsh because he doesn't have enough information. All he did, other than Milwaukee Braves announcing was Wisconsin Badgers football announcing. That's it. What websites can you find Blaine Walsh? Ashbeckjonathan (talk) 16:22, 13 May 2013 (UTC)

Blaine Walsh article[edit]

Please see Blaine Walsh's article. There'll be more on him. DutchmanInDisguise (talk) 02:42, 18 May 2013 (UTC)

Looks like RFD found some stuff already, like about Blaine's dad and Blaine's service record. 99.103.33.210 (talk) 23:48, 21 May 2013 (UTC)

I did find the newspaper article about Blaine Walsh's death. The article mentioned that hid father served in the Wisconsin State Legislature in the 1920s so I started an article about Samuel Walsh. Thanks-RFD (talk) 00:08, 22 May 2013 (UTC)
Thank you, RFD! I've added links so that one can read the entire article you found. DutchmanInDisguise (talk) 18:17, 25 May 2013 (UTC)

Bob Kelley[edit]

Hey, DutchmanInDisuise, I found this reference, http://atlanta.braves.mlb.com/atl/history/broadcasters.jsp, that even has Bob Kelley's name on it. Chris Schenkel broadcasted Milwaukee Braves games in 1954, the year after Kelly. Ashbeckjonathan 02:50, 8 June 2013 (UTC)

Sorry about the misspell, DutchmannInDisguise. Ashbeckjonathan 02:53, 8 June 2013 (UTC)
I was also considering on creating an article about Tom Collins, who also worked on Braves broadcasts as well as the Brewers. He also worked with Blaine Walsh for the Braves and Bob Uecker with the Brewers, but I could not find a single reference for Collins. Ashbeckjonathan 18:17, 9 June 2013 (UTC)

Retirement[edit]

Hi, DutchmanInDisguise! I hope you are having a good day. Just to remind you, I am going to retire from Wikipedia starting today until I feel like returning to Wikipedia. This my farewell to you. I hope you have a nice day! Keep up with the Bob Kelley article, too! Ashbeckjonathan 21:32, 11 June 2013 (UTC)

Thanks, Ashbeckjonathan. Hope you'll get a good rest. Come back when you feel refreshed and can cope with all this wikistuff. DutchmanInDisguise (talk) 06:04, 12 June 2013 (UTC)

Saxophonists[edit]

Sorry for erasing Brooks from the list, it was an accident. Amb1997 (talk) 11:51, 19 May 2014 (UTC)

Ossian's Middle Name?[edit]

Hello DutchmanInDisguise,

Thanks for your comments regarding my Ross pages. With regard to Ossian's middle name, I too have doubts that "Major" is correct. I haven't seen any other solid evidence that this was in fact his middle name (including writings by his son). Some sources state that Major was used as a nickname, based on his service in the War of 1812, and this may be what Alice Winans Egy Woolley was referring to. I plan to look at her work next week, but in the meantime, I'm going to revise the Wikipedia entry to remove "Major" as his middle name until we're on more solid ground.
