Afc UK Harcore producers[edit]

Hi, I don't really know much about adding stuff to wikipedia, I tried to add the article http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wikipedia_talk:Articles_for_creation/Submissions/List_of_UK_Hardcore_producers&action=history

The source is discogs which is a fairly reputable site —Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.104.227.11 (talk) 20:33, 24 January 2009 (UTC)

My Responce to your deletion from Network neutrality[edit]

Your addition to Network neutrality has been removed, as it appears to have added copyrighted material to Wikipedia without permission from the copyright holder. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other websites or printed material; such additions will be deleted. You may use external websites or publications as a source of information, but not as a source of article content such as sentences or images. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing. Feinoha Talk, My master 02:38, 24 December 2010 (UTC)

This is a waste of time (constantly re-adding contrubutions) and this will be the downfall of wikipedia 184.76.242.14 (talk) 04:40, 24 December 2010 (UTC)

Copy-pastes of legitimate articles[edit]

You prodded an article, Alex Sallons, on the grounds that it was a copy and paste of Martin Luther King with few modifications.

Hi, I've rewritten Non-heterosexuals and would appreciate you revisiting Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Non-heterosexuals to see if your concerns have been addressed. Thank you! Banjeboi 13:32, 24 July 2008 (UTC)

I second Benjiboi's request, and believe your concerns have been addressed. In all fairness, the article clearly didn't assert notability as it was when nominated. However, due to the improvements during the AfD, please consider withdrawing the nomination, per WP:HEY, as well as per WP:AFD which says: If the reasons given in the deletion nomination are later addressed by editing, the nomination should be withdrawn by the nominator, and the deletion discussion will be closed by an admin. Thank you. — Becksguy (talk) 06:24, 27 July 2008 (UTC)

SASSCO[edit]

[3] is a website and team that has actual sponsors including iKobo, Manpower and Milltech and have a deal with Adidas a team who has their own footballs, with a well known six-a-side football league on Tuesday's and Thursday's with Cups and leagues, a website with 27,000 hits! A u18 team. They play teams like Shildon A.F.C Rutherford A.F.C. They have money to spend, and have many links with well-known companies, they wil be touring Malta in November with details on the site about it. They are a FA Charter afficiated club. A club hosted by a well known hosting service, Red Fox Hosting. A club that could be playing in the Football League in less then 10 years! Also a team that had played in the Tyne & Wear Football League, until the fall of the league. A Archive section going back to 1999! Rivalries as well!

AfC news[edit]

AFC-Logo.png

Dear AfC participant,

  1. Msgj and Tnxman307 are organising the AfC challenge! It's a little competition to help improve some of the articles created through AfC and we are hoping that everyone will get involved. For level 1, you just need to bring a stub up to Start-class. Level 2 is improving a Start-class article to C-class. And so on. To get involved or for more information please see the competition page.
  2. Those of you who haven't reviewed an article recently might not have noticed the new process that was implemented this year. Reviewing articles is now more enjoyable than ever :) You might like to give it a try. All articles waiting for review are in Category:Pending Afc requests. (Please read the updated instructions.)
  3. Please consider adding {{AFC status}} to your userpage to keep track of the number of articles waiting for review. At the time of writing we are officially backlogged, so help is needed!
  4. There is currently a proposal to bring the Images for upload process under the umbrella of WikiProject Articles for creation. The rationale is that both processes are designed to allow unregistered users to take part more fully in Wikipedia, and partipants in each process can probably help each other.

If you no longer wish to receive messages from WikiProject Articles for creation, please remove your name from this list. Thank you.

Vandalism[edit]

I wanted to vandalize your user boxes to make one of them say "this user is a sex offender" but don't know how. User name one (talk) 05:38, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

I appreciate it...[edit]

Thank you for reverting the edit to my user page. Please be advised that I have received death threats from this user in the past and the most recent edit summary accuses me of murder, so calling it vandalism is misleading/inappropriate/not enough. If you notice any other such "contributions", please revert ASAP, notify oversight immediately and report such abuse to WP:ANI so the user can be blocked as soon as possible to prevent other such problems. — BQZip01 — talk 05:00, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

Cut-and-paste moves[edit]

Hi! Just wanted to clarify something for you when reviewing suspected copyright violations. Your edit here said the two pages were unrelated - what happened is one article was "cut-and-pasted" to another location instead of moved using the "Move" tab. That is usually what has happened when Corenbot says that one Wikipedia article is a copy of another. You can check this in the articles' histories and fix it by either:

  • Replacing the content of the new article with a redirect to the old article, and reverting the history of the old article back to before it was cut-and-pasted - this is appropriate if you can't see why it was moved or it was no longer necessary (e.g. to create a disambiguation page for an article that has since been deleted), or
  • Tagging the new article with {{db-histmerge|NAME OF PAGE THE ARTICLE WAS CUT FROM}} if the cut-and-paste move makes sense (e.g. fixing a typo) and the page should be moved to the new location properly. An admin will move the existing article to the new location and merge article histories if necessary.

If you come across a real cut-and-paste mess (e.g. a user has cut-and-pasted several articles on top of one another and they've since been edited), you can explain what's happened at the cut and paste move repair holding pen and an admin will fix it. Hope that helps. :) Somno (talk) 05:27, 21 March 2009 (UTC)

Thought I would include an example of the first way of fixing cut-and-paste moves, since it was difficult to explain and may have been confusing - a user cut-and-pasted Bigger Than Life into Bigger Than Life (film) and Corenbot posted at suspected copyright violations that "Bigger Than Life (film)" was a copy of "Bigger Than Life". I made Bigger Than Life (film) into a redirect to the original article and reverted the original article back. Somno (talk) 05:35, 21 March 2009 (UTC)

Privacy of personal information[edit]

I have posted to User talk:Iiidddeeefffeeerrr. You should not have given a warning, let alone a final warning, for [5]. I know you cannot see the user page now that it has been deleted, but you could when you gave the warning. PrimeHunter (talk) 14:13, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

User:KrAtul[edit]

Yes, I9 applies to such images (though it might be a good idea to request fair use rationales over deletion in some cases). Have you considered informing the uploader that making a screenshot does not transfer the copyright and that PD-self can only be applied to material they have created from scratch themselves or for material that is a derivative of PD material? Most people are just plainly oblivious to copyright rules. Unless we inform them, it won't improve. - Mgm|(talk) 12:34, 27 March 2009 (UTC)

Menudo (band)[edit]

I know this will be a pain but can you review the Menudo (band) page edits that have been done by me over the past months. I sourced the information from NY post and linked one story from a actual news story the clip was on a blog but I was not using the blog info just the news clip. There have been several obvious fans vandal the page, I also think the user from today that started the drama is a Menudo fan.

Just review for nuetral review and revert sourced info if you feel I am correct and/or re-write it in wiki standards.

RE: File copyright problem with File:(Az)Xeus.jpg[edit]

I have created this Image myself and have said so in the comments; therefore it doesn't have a license I don't wish to argue with you or the rules of this site its just I looked at the license options when I uploaded the file and I am not sure which of these options I should have chosen, I would appreciate it if you could help me out with this matter by pointing me in the right direction with this issue.--AzXeus 18:57, 31 March 2009 (UTC)

Thank you from (Az)Xeus[edit]

Ease up on the rampant image tagging[edit]

Yo, I'm looking at all these tags you're placing on images and a majority of them are basic stuff like screenshots and game covers. Instead of slapping them with a CSD tag you could take the five minutes, look at their respective articles and add a rationale yourself if the image is warranted. Tbh what you're doing isn't really constructive at all. - 66.19.201.152 (talk) 02:46, 4 April 2009 (UTC)

Your edit to The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past[edit]

I noticed you tagged The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past as having an excessive amount of copyrighted material. As of this typing, the page has box art(required), a screenshot illustrating gameplay(required), a sreenshot illustrating the prologue(probably excessive), the album cover(likely helpful), a page from the graphic novel(could be too much, could be helpful), and a screenshot illustrating the gameplay of Four Swords(helpful). I am unaware of anything else that could be construed as copyrighted material. If the screenshot of the prologue were removed, would that satisfy the tag, or would another image need to go? Larrythefunkyferret (talk) 04:56, 4 April 2009 (UTC)

deletable image-caption[edit]

Hi, and thanks for looking after some of the fair use images around Wikipedia. I've improved several fair use rationales on images included on List of characters in Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones according to your suggestions.

I wanted to point out a minor technicality, though. Your use of {{dfu}} on image pages with disputed rationales is correct, but {{deletable image-caption}} on article pages implies that a disputed fair use rationale is a criterion for speedy deletion (in contradiction of WP:CSD#F6). Instead, you might try a caption like "<small>This image's fair use rationale is disputed. It may be deleted after seven days from the date of the dispute, if uncontested.</small>". Matt Fitzpatrick (talk) 01:42, 6 April 2009 (UTC)

Hi. I came over to mention an AfD here, but wanted to point out that "dfu" is a speedy criterion under WP:CSD#F7: "Invalid fair-use claims tagged with {{subst:dfu}} may be deleted seven days after they are tagged, if a full and valid fair-use use rationale is not added." This is likely why {{Di-disputed fair use rationale}} suggests that contributors "Add following to the image captions: {{deletable image-caption}}". Concerns with that should probably be addressed to WT:CSD, since many contributors are likely to follow the directions on the template. :) --Moonriddengirl (talk) 11:54, 7 April 2009 (UTC)
Ah, good catch. Vague templates are vague. Maybe I can suggest an improvement there. Matt Fitzpatrick (talk) 00:15, 8 April 2009 (UTC)

Re:Coaching[edit]

Well, I've been far too busy recently to provide any significant amount of coaching, but the comments I've made in the past (particularly the one when I started the coaching off the top of my head) still stand. Take a set of articles on topics you enjoy and start improving them. If you don't know how, look at GA or FA examples of similar articles. If you still need help, go to the relevant WikiProject and ask for aid. Participation in the normal editing process provides you with knowledge of most of our policies and guidelines and a fairly natural manner as you edit. It's gradual and will take time but is ultimately satisfying (and is the reason we're all here). — sephiroth bcr (converse) 08:38, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

Images[edit]

Outline collaboration![edit]

As you know, Penubag is working on a banner to advertise the Outline WikiProject. And he's almost done.

The banner prominently presents the "Outline of chocolate", which of course will become the most widely advertised outline as soon as the banner goes live. The first thing many editors will do after seeing the banner is look for that outline.

The problem is, we don't have one.

So that's our first outline collaboration!

I started a draft this morning.

It needs to be finished and moved to the article namespace before we can start using Penubag's banner ad!

Come join in on the fun. It's chocolate!

As you can see, the article was deleted and re-directed to LGBT parenting as some users suggested, but still there is no mention of the term co-motherhood in the article it was re-directed to. As a new contributor I would not wish to edit other peoples articles but I understand you are participating in a group to improve the LGBT parenting article. Please feel free to use my article in editing your article, if you wish:

Co-motherhood From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

When a married heterosexual couple have a child by the use of assisted reproductive technology, the spouse of the new mother will legally and morally be considered the father of the child, although he may not be the biological father. In the same way, homosexual lesbian couples can have children. The role and status of the non-biological mother or co-mother, is called co-motherhood. In some countries, such as the Netherlands and Australia, there is an approximation towards equal legal rights for all parents, regardless of sexual orientation. This includes the right to co-maternity leave and many other rights, responsibilities and obligations assumed by fathers.

Help Cleaning Up Page Move[edit]

{{Adminhelp}}

Could someone help with the page moves I made when creating the article for WP:AFC, Entanglement (graph measure). I originally moved it to Entanglement (graph mesasure), noticed that the word "measure" was misspelled, so I moved it to Entanglement (graph meassure). After which I noticed that the new page was still misspelled, and finally moved it to the correct title at: Entanglement (graph measure). Feinoha Talk, My master 00:28, 9 June 2010 (UTC)

Response at WP:FEED[edit]

Whether you came to feed as a result of my plea, or for some other reason, I appreciate the attempt to help. However, I was puzzled by this response:

"Do you have a specific question about the topic? We're not mind readers here."

At the help desk, I expect editors to ask a specific question. However, at the Feedback desk, it is generally understood that the editor is asking for general feedback; in the case of a user draft, such as this, is it ready for main space? Some explicitly ask, but some just post (or attempt to post) the article they have worked on. In this case, User:Liwumi/Ecco2_Corp. (Many new editors don't yet know how to properly link to thee article they've started.) In this case, the editor needs a lot of help.--SPhilbrickT 12:33, 21 October 2010 (UTC)

I took a look at the article after you posted your explanation here. I don't agree with you that the article "looks like a list". I do however, think that the article is getting way too long, and perhaps could be split per the guidelines at WP:SPLIT. Feinoha Talk, My master 04:21, 28 October 2010 (UTC)

Links you removed[edit]

Hello, thanks for leaving a message outlining your concerns about the www.contemporaryartdaily.com links I added to a number of artists' websites. While I understand Wikipedia's need to guard against spam and promotion, I think those links pass the Wikipedia guidelines in that they 1. feature relevant copyrighted media content with permission of the exhibition spaces, 2. display many installation views not easily found elsewhere on the net, including at the galleries' pages themselves (compare, e.g., the images of the Jonathan Monk show at the gallery page and at Contemporary Art Daily) and 3. the links direct to index pages which can automatically update with additional material in the future. If you could elaborate on what you think is inappropriate about the presence of the links, that would be very helpful. 24.15.199.147 (talk) 17:45, 28 October 2010 (UTC)

I removed your links to the Contemporary Art Daily site, based on the the fact that at the time (before you explained it to me), you appeared to be adding them to many articles. I do not have anything against you nor Contemporary Art Daily. I suggest you read Wikipedia:Spam#How not to be a spammer before readding them. If, after reviewing that, you still have more questions please feel free to ask them on my talk page. I hope that made sense. Feinoha Talk, My master 18:02, 28 October 2010 (UTC)

FIctional CHarector[edit]

Hello, i have a question about my recently deleted article, you had nothing to do with it, but i just need someone to guide me as i am new to the system, originally i took about an hour to write about a fictional charector in my completed book,As Time Settles, but it was instant deleted and marked as vandilism? My question is why is a fictional charector like Spock allowed to have an entry?

Marked as Patrolled[edit]

Hi there, Feinoha. Just a little request. It seems that Twinkle, quite annoyingly, doesn't mark pages as patrolled even when you tag them for WP:CSD, WP:PROD or WP:AFD. I've just come across an article, that you'd tagged for WP:CSD on the unpatrolled list. I'm sure you already know, but if you scroll down to the bottom of the article, there will be a little link in square brackets that says [mark this page as patrolled]. Clicking that means it'll get taken off the unpatrolled list and so no-one else will come across it on that list. It's not your fault, I know; it's Twinkle's. But until they fix it, it'd be great if you could click that link just before you tag an article. I've marked that one as patrolled. If you didn't find the article via the new pages list then just ignore me; you won't have had the option to mark it as patrolled. Sorry to be a pain. Keep up the good work.

New Page Patrol survey[edit]

New page patrol – Survey Invitation


Hello Feinoha! The WMF is currently developing new tools to make new page patrolling much easier. Whether you have patrolled many pages or only a few, we now need to know about your experience. The survey takes only 6 minutes, and the information you provide will not be shared with third parties other than to assist us in analyzing the results of the survey; the WMF will not use the information to identify you.

  • If this invitation also appears on other accounts you may have, please complete the survey once only.
  • If this has been sent to you in error and you have never patrolled new pages, please ignore it.

Please click HERE to take part.
Many thanks in advance for providing this essential feedback.


You are receiving this invitation because you have patrolled new pages. For more information, please see NPP Survey

Could you explain why the image was removed?[edit]

In reference to my unpublished article for:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Eduncan911/Dell_XPS_730X

You removed an image. I thought something was broken, and I added it back. I didn't know you actually removed it.

But it is unclear why you removed it. I followed all of the guidelines for setting the "Non-free promotional" as well as supplying the "Non-free use rationale" along with it, per Wikipedia's guidelines.

So I am unclear why the image was removed from the article, as I clearly state exactly what the image is used for. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Eduncan911 (talkcontribs) 01:19, 29 December 2011 (UTC)

As mentioned at WP:UP we are not supposed to add non-free images to user space. You can however link to them by adding a colon in front of the file name. For example, if the file "Example.jpg" were fair use (it isn't) then it would be against policy to display it on user pages. So in order to have it referenced but not shown one would do [[:File:Example.jpg]] which produces File:Example.jpg. Once you are finished making the article, and have moved it into the main namespace, you can "readd" the images by removing the colon. I hope this makes sense. Feinoha Talk, My master 01:28, 29 December 2011 (UTC)

That makes absolute PERFECT sense! Thank you! I didn't know that user spaces had different rules, as I thought it was a draft location as I prepare the document (going to take me weeks to get most of the information in there first).

I will remove the other images as well until ready for publication.

Thank you very much for actually explaining the difference. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Eduncan911 (talkcontribs) 01:39, 29 December 2011 (UTC)

New Pages update[edit]

Hey Feinoha :). A quick update on how things are going with the New Page Triage/New Pages Feed project. As the enwiki page notes, the project is divided into two chunks: the "list view" (essentially an updated version of Special:NewPages) and the "article view", a view you'll be presented with when you open up individual articles that contains a toolbar with lots of options to interact with the page - patrolling it, adding maintenance tags, nominating it for deletion, so on.

On the list view front, we're pretty much done! We tried deploying it to enwiki, in line with our Engagement Strategy on Wednesday, but ran into bugs and had to reschedule - the same happened on Thursday :(. We've queued a new deployment for Monday PST, and hopefully that one will go better. If it does, the software will be ready to play around with and test by the following week! :).

On the article view front, the developers are doing some fantastic work designing the toolbar, which we're calling the "curation bar"; you can see a mockup here. A stripped-down version of this should be ready to deploy fairly soon after the list view is; I'm afraid I don't have precise dates yet. When I have more info, or can unleash everyone to test the list view, I'll let you know :). As always, any questions to the talkpage for the project or mine. Thanks! Okeyes (WMF) (talk) 23:38, 5 May 2012 (UTC)

New Page Triage prototype released[edit]

Hey Feinoha! We've finally finished the NPT prototype and deployed it on enwiki. We'll be holding an office hours session on the 16th at 21:00 in #wikimedia-office to show it off, get feedback and plot future developments - hope to see you there! Okeyes (WMF) (talk) 03:47, 13 May 2012 (UTC)

New Page Triage/New Pages Feed[edit]

Hey all :). A notification that the prototype for the New Pages Feed is now live on enwiki! We had to briefly take it down after an unfortunate bug started showing up, but it's now live and we will continue developing it on-site.

The page can be found at Special:NewPagesFeed. Please, please, please test it and tell us what you think! Note that as a prototype it will inevitably have bugs - if you find one not already mentioned at the talkpage, bring it up and I'm happy to carry it through to the devs. The same is true of any additions you can think of to the software, or any questions you might have - let me know and I'll respond.

Page Triage newsletter[edit]

Hey all. Some quick but important updates on what we've been up to and what's coming up next :).

The curation toolbar, our Wikimedia-supported twinkle replacement. We're going to be deploying it, along with a pile of bugfixes, to wikipedia on 9 August. After a few days to check it doesn't make anything explode or die, we'll be sticking up a big notice and sending out an additional newsletter inviting people to test it out and give us feedback :). This will be followed by two office hours sessions - one on Tuesday the 14th of August at 19:00 UTC for all us Europeans, and one on Wednesday the 15th at 23:00 UTC for the East Coasters out there :). As always, these will be held in #wikimedia-office; drop me a note if you want to know how to easily get on IRC, or if you aren't able to attend but would like the logs.

I hope to see a lot of you there; it's going to be a big day for everyone involved, I think :). I'll have more notes after the deployment! Okeyes (WMF) (talk) 20:10, 3 August 2012 (UTC)

New Pages newsletter[edit]

Hey all :)

A couple of new things.

First, you'll note that all the project titles have now changed to the Page Curation prefix, rather than having the New Pages Feed prefix. This is because the overarching project name has changed to Page Curation; the feed is still known as New Pages Feed, and the Curation Toolbar is still the Curation Toolbar. Hopefully this will be the last namechange ;p.

On the subject of the Curation Toolbar (nice segue, Oliver!) - it's now deployed on Wikipedia. Just open up any article in the New Pages Feed and it should appear on the right.

It's still a beta version - bugs are expected - and we've got a lot more work to do. But if you see something going wrong, or a feature missing, drop me a note or post on the project talkpage and I'll be happy to help :). Thanks! Okeyes (WMF) (talk) 00:11, 10 August 2012 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:RioRainbowGate 7660.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:RioRainbowGate 7660.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. —Farix (t | c) 02:02, 8 September 2012 (UTC)

Page Curation update[edit]

Hey all :). We've just deployed another set of features for Page Curation. They include flyouts from the icons in Special:NewPagesFeed, showing who reviewed an article and when, a listing of this in the "info" flyout, and a general re-jigging of the info flyout - we've also fixed the weird bug with page_titles_having_underscores_instead_of_spaces in messages sent to talkpages, and introduced CSD logging! As always, these features will need some work - but any feedback would be most welcome. Thanks! Okeyes (WMF) (talk) 18:15, 10 September 2012 (UTC)

Page Curation newsletter[edit]

Hey Feinoha. This will be, if not our final newsletter, one of the final ones :). After months of churning away at this project, our final version (apart from a few tweaks and bugfixes) is now live. Changes between this and the last release include deletion tag logging, a centralised log, and fixes to things like edit summaries.

Hopefully you like what we've done with the place; suggestions for future work on it, complaints and bugs to the usual address :). We'll be holding a couple of office hours sessions, which I hope you'll all attend. Many thanks, Okeyes (WMF) (talk) 11:12, 24 September 2012 (UTC)

Page Curation newsletter - closing up![edit]

Hey all :).

We're (very shortly) closing down this development cycle for Page Curation. It's genuinely been a pleasure to talk with you all and build software that is so close to my own heart, and also so effective. The current backlog is 9 days, and I've never seen it that low before.

However! Closing up shop does not mean not making any improvements. First-off, this is your last chance to give us a poke about unresolved bugs or report new ones on the talkpage. If something's going wrong, we want to know about it :). Second, we'll hopefully be taking another pass over the software next year. If you've got ideas for features Page Curation doesn't currently have, stick them here.

Again, it's been an honour. Thanks :). Okeyes (WMF) (talk) 12:18, 17 October 2012 (UTC)

Thank you. —Farix (t | c) 12:22, 24 October 2012 (UTC)

This is not a newsletter[edit]

This is just a tribute.

Anyway. You're getting this note because you've participated in discussion and/or asked for updates to either the Article Feedback Tool or Page Curation. This isn't about either of those things, I'm afraid ;p. We've recently started working on yet another project: Echo, a notifications system to augment the watchlist. There's not much information at the moment, because we're still working out the scope and the concepts, but if you're interested in further updates you can sign up here.

In addition, we'll be holding an office hours session at 21:00 UTC on Wednesday, 14 November in #wikimedia-office - hope to see you all there :). I appreciate it's an annoying time for non-Europeans: if you're interested in chatting about the project but can't make it, give me a shout and I can set up another session if there's enough interest in one particular timezone or a skype call if there isn't. Thanks! Okeyes (WMF) (talk) 10:57, 10 November 2012 (UTC)


You made a mistake[edit]

This is not a test. I repeat this is not a test!

There have been a lot of edits going on. So mentioning some generalized notion of editing gives me no idea what you are talking about exactly.

I can say... any edits being made in regards to Ray Butts is in conjunction with his immediate family's interest. I am not an expert here, nor do I care to be. At the same time I'm no stranger to HTML. So if there is something I do wrong, anyone is welcome to fix and help, or let me know.

My goal is to get the full biographical page for Ray Butts up and running enough to qualify for publishing. There is a new Ray Butts page in the submission process (should be already be enough to publish). It contains details about his early life, personal info, and a picture, while leading to the two most famous inventions. There is a lot more to add, but there are references and inline citations with the page written so far, and it should be enough to qualify for publication. Then once public others (some even friends of the family) can work to add more.

The Echosonic page was already there, with a re-direct for Ray Butts. It was originally title "Ray Butts Echosonic". I changed that to just Echosonic. Because the goal is to get it all to the new page when referencing his name. Not an obscure page about one thing he did that contains very little about the person and his other contributions to the industry. So the re-direct for his name is something that needs to be changed and/or removed as well.

He deserves a full biographical page like any person with multiple inventions that greatly impacted the world. If you can help, or have comments, criticism, that is fine. However, please do not jump to assumptions for my time is limited, and I do not have much to spare for anything that is not helping things move forward (including this). Thanks
