RFC[edit]

Are you planning on doing anything with your sandbox RFC on me? If not, would you please remove it? There is no need for something like that to be sitting around for 6+ months, especially when it totally and completely skews situations unfairly. Thank you, Metros (talk) 17:30, 26 October 2008 (UTC)

Removed --English836 (talk) 00:25, 27 October 2008 (UTC)
Much obliged. Metros (talk) 01:41, 27 October 2008 (UTC)

Smithborough[edit]

Hi English, hope you don't mind but I've declined your speedy deletion nom for Smithborough, its a village in Ireland; what do you think of the article now? ϢereSpielChequers 12:26, 26 March 2009 (UTC)

I've not readded the Speedy Tags, but in the future, once a tag is up, you cannot remove it. Ive orphaned the article and requested it be wikified. If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to ask.--English836 (talk) 12:37, 26 March 2009 (UTC)
Hi English, I think you'll find that any editor can remove or amend a tag except the editor who created the article. May I suggest that next time you tag an article as "a very short article lacking sufficient context to identify the subject of the article" you first check the links - this article already had incoming ones which explained what it was (if you didn't know from the article). ϢereSpielChequers 13:52, 26 March 2009 (UTC)
Hey, Sorry i didn't know you were an administrator--English836 (talk) 19:32, 26 March 2009 (UTC)
Not a problem, I'd guessed you assumed I was the author. I do try and give feedback when I decline speedies and checking the links can be a useful way to salvage articles. ϢereSpielChequers 14:22, 27 March 2009 (UTC)

Amenia, Millerton pics[edit]

Good! Do you mind if I transfer them to Commons later? Daniel Case (talk) 10:34, 30 March 2009 (UTC)

Be my guest :) --English836 (talk) 17:24, 30 March 2009 (UTC)
P.S. Theres one of Copake too, any a few more coming up tonight. Be on the lookout for some!

Orphaned non-free image (Image:ArlingtonFireDistrictLogo.gif)[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading Image:ArlingtonFireDistrictLogo.gif. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image 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 images 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 any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Skier Dude (talk) 05:33, 7 April 2009 (UTC)

GA Sweeps invitation[edit]

Hello, I hope you are doing well. I am sending you this message since you are a member of the GA WikiProject. I would like to invite you to consider helping with the GA sweeps process. Sweeps helps to ensure that the oldest GAs still meet the criteria, and improve the quality of GAs overall. Unfortunately, last month only two articles were reviewed. This is definitely a low point after our peak at the beginning of the process when 163 articles were reviewed in September 2007. After nearly two years, the running total has just passed the 50% mark. In order to expediate the reviewing, several changes have been made to the process. A new worklist has been created, detailing which articles are left to review. All exempt and previously reviewed articles have already been removed from the list. Instead of reviewing by topic, you can consider picking and choosing whichever articles interest you.

We are always looking for new members to assist with the remaining articles, so if you are interested or know of anybody that can assist, please visit the GA sweeps page. In addition, for every member that reviews 100 articles or has a significant impact on the process, s/he will get an award when they reach that threshold. If only 14 editors achieve this feat starting now, we would be done with Sweeps! Of course, having more people reviewing less articles would be better for all involved, so please consider asking others to help out. Feel free to stop by and only review a few articles, something's better than nothing! Take a look at the list, and see what articles interest you. Let's work to complete Sweeps so that efforts can be fully focused on the backlog at GAN. If you have any questions about the process, reviewing, or need help with a particular article, please contact me or OhanaUnited and we'll be happy to help. --Happy editing!

Arlington High School[edit]

I have a question about a couple of your edits related to Arlington High School. How is this spam? Nothing is being advertised as far as I can tell. Additionally, what was so wrong about 81.175.83.141's edits that you needed to leave this message? Why would you threaten to revert someone "totally re-working" the article when it was a highly beneficial improvement to the article? What policies did s/he violate that you say s/he did? either way (talk) 21:00, 31 May 2009 (UTC)

I'd be more than happy to explain s/he 's issues. here s/he blanked an entire section (Campus). Secondly, s /he also changed the sections, switching to bold text. Third, s /he also added a completely unsourced paragraph regarding Marching Band. here s /he also removed a good part of the article, which remained in part of the article for quite some time. Again here s /he created a gallery. As a administrator, you should know Wikipedia is not a collection of images. S /he removed all the images out of the article, and placed them in a useless gallery on the bottom. Enough errors? If you wanna play the anonymous editors advocate fine, but at least review the edits. --English836 (talk) 21:47, 31 May 2009 (UTC)
The first edit did not remove the campus section. It moved it down in the article. The "bold text" of the section headers were sub headers (== v. === section headers). That's a totally appropriate way to organize articles. As for the marching band paragraph that s/he "added," s/he did not add it. It was already there, the IP just combined several paragraphs that were already in there. The second edit, again, did not remove the information but moved it down in the article. The last one, the gallery, should probably not have been done since it took them out of sections in the article where they would have been within context, but galleries are perfectly acceptable on Wikipedia. So, all these edits are fine and in good faith. Additionally, please don't accuse me of not examining the edits when it is clear that you yourself have not clearly analyzed them. either way (talk) 22:44, 31 May 2009 (UTC)

Articles For Deletion[edit]

Please take a look at Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/City_Of_Beacon_Fire_Department deletion discussion regarding one of your articles. Also, please be advised that your template will likely be considered for deletion as well, as the majority of the entries are non-existent firehouse articles, none of which are likely to be considered notable. Bullzeye contribs 22:39, 25 June 2009 (UTC)

Fair enough. There isnt a need for an attitude on the AFD page though "yeah right" ... --English836 (talk) 02:40, 26 June 2009 (UTC)

AfD nomination of Beacon Volunteer Ambulance Corps[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

An editor has nominated Beacon Volunteer Ambulance Corps, an article which you have created or worked on, for deletion. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also "What Wikipedia is not").

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Beacon Volunteer Ambulance Corps and please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also edit the article during the discussion to address the nominator's concerns but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate. Thank you. either way (talk) 04:19, 5 April 2010 (UTC)

NYCRR Stations[edit]

Hey, my name is Emily... I don't actually log into Wikipedia all that much anymore, but I did to leave a message here on your page... I'm hoping that you still check it! I noticed that you were the person that created most of the station pages for the old Upper Harlem Division. I'm actually looking to go to these old stations shortly. I'm assuming that you added the coordinates, but I am having difficulties in finding some of them, like Craryville. There is a photo there, so the place must still exist, but the coordinates on a map look like it is in the middle of a forest. If you have any thoughts or you think you could help me out, I'd love it if you could email me... info (at) iridetheharlemline.com Emmyceru (talk) 15:22, 22 August 2010 (UTC)

Sharon NYCRR Station[edit]

Is there any chance you could split off the original image of File:Sharon Station NY.JPG? I suggest a name like "Harlem Valley Rail Trail @ Sharon Station." ----DanTD (talk) 02:38, 6 February 2011 (UTC)

File:Pawling seal.gif listed for deletion[edit]

A file that you uploaded or altered, File:Pawling seal.gif, has been listed at Wikipedia:Files for deletion.

Proposed deletion of Essentia[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

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

Pure advertising with no evidence of notability

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.

The Wikipedia Library now offering accounts from Cochrane Collaboration (sign up!)[edit]

The Wikipedia Library gets Wikipedia editors free access to reliable sources that are behind paywalls. Because you are signed on as a medical editor, I thought you'd want to know about our most recent donation from Cochrane Collaboration.

  • Cochrane Collaboration is an independent medical nonprofit organization that conducts systematic reviews of randomized controlled trials of health-care interventions, which it then publishes in the Cochrane Library.
  • Cochrane has generously agreed to give free, full-access accounts to 100 medical editors. Individual access would otherwise cost between $300 and $800 per account.
  • If you are still active as a medical editor, come and sign up :)
