The Ideal Scout[edit]

Good job, creating The Ideal Scout. It was deserving of its own article, and doing so nicely cleaned up the R. Tait McKenzie article. BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 00:25, 18 February 2012 (UTC)

You said it all, and that particular copyright paranoiac goes after mosquitoes with M80s.

Final Warning[edit]

Please stop re-adding non-free files to your userspace edits like this will get you blocked. I dont really want to go down that road, but usage of non-free media in your userspace is strictly forbidden. Werieth (talk) 21:06, 23 December 2013 (UTC)

Hi[edit]

Thanks for helping with that mess yesterday. Sorry you seem to have become some sort of a temporary casualty - that's not right, or fair. I've said so elsewhere, but this is wiki, so don't expect to see any reward for doing the right thing. Do feel free to give me a shout in the event you think I might be able to help you with anything. Be well. Begoontalk 15:13, 15 January 2014 (UTC)

Hi Evrik, As someone else who came across the same bazarre editing behaviour and uncouth comments as you did just wanted to add my support for what you did. It was a shame those who should have known better to smell a rat did not bother to check things out before taking action.Tmol42 (talk) 22:44, 16 January 2014 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Beach Bunny Swimwear[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Beach Bunny Swimwear requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about an organization or company, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, you can place a request here. Talpatra (talk) 14:59, 21 March 2014 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Padmavyuha, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Native Americans (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

Wikimedia DC invites revolutionaries, free thinkers, and other sundry editors to a DC WikiSalon[edit]

The WikiSalon is a special meetup usually held during the first and third full weeks of every month, from 7 PM to 9 PM. It's an informal gathering of Wikimedia enthusiasts, who come together to discuss Wikimedia wikis and collaboratively edit. There's no set agenda, and guests are welcome to recommend articles for the group to edit or edit on their own.

If you're coming by Metro, the closest station is Dupont Circle (on the Red Line). If you're driving, a lot of parking opens up downtown after 6:30 PM, so finding a parking space (even a free one) should be easy. Once you've found the building, go to Cove on the second floor. We will be in the conference room.

When: Wednesday, September 17, 2014 at 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM

Where: The Cove, Dupont Circle, 1730 Connecticut Avenue NW, 2nd floor, 20009, DC

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. This is a notice to inform you that a tag has been placed on Burlington Council requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A3 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is an article with no content whatsoever, or whose contents consist only of external links, a "See also" section, book references, category tags, template tags, interwiki links, images, a rephrasing of the title, a question that should have been asked at the help or reference desks, or an attempt to contact the subject of the article. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion".

Infobox religion[edit]

Please stop adding this infobox inappropriately to articles. It is intended to describe a religious sect, not a religious observation. Elizium23 (talk) 01:00, 24 December 2014 (UTC)

December 2014[edit]

Information icon Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. You appear to be engaged in an edit war with one or more editors according to your reverts at Rorate Coeli. Although repeatedly reverting or undoing another editor's contributions may seem necessary to protect your preferred version of a page, on Wikipedia this is usually seen as obstructing the normal editing process, and often creates animosity between editors. Instead of edit warring, please discuss the situation with the editor(s) involved and try to reach a consensus on the talk page.

If editors continue to revert to their preferred version they are likely to be blocked from editing. This isn't done to punish an editor, but to prevent the disruption caused by edit warring. In particular, editors should be aware of the three-revert rule, which says that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. While edit warring on Wikipedia is not acceptable in any amount, breaking the three-revert rule is very likely to lead to a block.

Speedy deletion nomination of Blue Mass[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Blue Mass requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article or image appears to be a clear copyright infringement. This article or image appears to be a direct copy from http://angelsoveramerica.org/tag/fr-thomas-dade. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If the external website or image belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text or image — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. If you are not the owner of the external website or image but have permission from that owner, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission. You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Elizium23 (talk) 05:17, 26 December 2014 (UTC)

About the tags I added to Blue Mass[edit]

Hi Evrik,
I've taken a little time to think about this, as you can see from the date of your message and the date of this reply. First of all, two things:

  • I admit I am a reliable sources curmudgeon. As Wikipedia-editing faults go, I guess this is probably relatively good fault, all things considered.
  • While I am a "WP:SYSOP" - and see this RefDesk discussion about why I think it's hilarious that a hover over of my username pops up "sysop, 44429 edits since: 2006-06-13" - when it comes to writing encyclopedia content, I am just another editor. From what I can see, you are a much better content writer than I could hope to be.

I will hop straight into the article right damn now, to see if I can address the issues I tagged. Talk to you soon, mate. Peter in Australia aka --Shirt58 (talk) 10:41, 28 December 2014 (UTC)

Fisheaters.com[edit]

Thanks for the heads-up about what's going on on the Blacklist page. I don't get this, though. I don't understand why they have it in for the Fisheaters website. It's the only traditional site like it on the itnernet, it's been around forever, it gets used by priests, gets used in RCIA classes, has been cited in books. Something isn't right here. Will you go to the Whitelist page and argue for an unblocking? The URL is: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MediaWiki_talk:Spam-whitelist#Fisheaters.com_.28One_Page.29_-_One_Article:_Entry_.22Traditional_Catholicism.22 Thanks! Schoemann (talk) 11:34, 1 January 2015 (UTC)

Thanks, Evrik. Something really shaky is going on. Check this out: the woman who runs Fisheaters says this about her site and Wikipedia: go to Fisheaters.com/wikipedia2.html And now Chabad has 2,118 links from Wiki: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:LinkSearch&limit=500&offset=2000&target=http%3A%2F%2F*.Chabad.org Why would they allow 2,118 links from Chabad but not one from a traditional Catholic website, and that because they say it "spammed" Wiki (when, if what the Fisheaters lady is saying is true, there were no rules against adding links to your own website!)? Does Wikipedia have a serious Catholic problem? It seems that way, and I'm starting to get angry about it. I don't know if you're Catholic or not or whether you have a dog in this fight, but even if you're not and you don't, simple fairness demands something be done about this.

This is kind of scary if you stop and think about it. Wikipedia is the biggest thing on the internet, the first thing people see if they use Google to search for anything, and it seems to be very anti-Catholic and very pro-Hassidic. This makes me want to see how Israel-Palestine entries are handled. Schoemann (talk) 13:37, 3 January 2015 (UTC)

Eric Berg[edit]

Restored here. I've changed "national" to US since we are not all Americans, and removed unacceptable YouTube and Amazon "references". Note that his own website/publications are not neutral and should be used with caution. Some of your other refs may not be independent verifiable sources as defined by the link.


Purely as a style thing, there shouldn't be a space between the punctuation and the ref following it, or between multiple refs Jimfbleak - talk to me? 07:20, 3 January 2015 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Casper Cub Scout comic.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Casper Cub Scout comic.jpg. 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 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).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 23:33, 22 January 2015 (UTC)

Museum hacks and museum edits[edit]

Hello there!

Upcoming events:

  • February 6–8: The third annual ArtBytes Hackathon at the Walters Art Museum! This year Wikimedia DC is partnering with the Walters for a hack-a-thon at the intersection of art and technology, and I would like to see Wikimedia well represented.
  • February 11: The monthly WikiSalon, same place as usual. RSVP on Meetup or just show up!
  • February 15: Wiki Loves Small Museums in Ocean City. Mary Mark Ockerbloom, with support from Wikimedia DC, will be leading a workshop at the Small Museum Association Conference on how they can contribute to Wikipedia. Tons of representatives from GLAM institutions will be present, and we are looking for volunteers. If you would like to help out, check out "Information for Volunteers".

I am also pleased to announce events for Wikimedia DC Black History Month with Howard University and NPR. Details on those events soon.

If you have any questions or have any requests, please email me at james.hare@wikimediadc.org.

See you there! – James Hare
