Idea of renaming Family_name article[edit]

Hello, Frappyjohn,

I see that you have edited the Family_name article a bit. Could you weigh in on my idea of changing the article name? Thank you. --DBlomgren 22:14, 1 January 2007 (UTC)

I have just done so. I believe you are correct that there needs to be a more general article on naming customs for persons, however I believe that article should be Personal name, which already has a good start on it. -- Frappyjohn 05:14, 8 January 2007 (UTC)

Wow! After Akb4's and your input on the above, I realize it needs putting several heads together and planning a better outline/redistribution of articles. Before I get involved in this, I want to finish rewriting the Hawthorne effect. After that, I'll help reorganize if you or "Akbie" (or others) have not already taken the initiative. Thanks for your input. DBlomgren 03:42, 10 January 2007 (UTC)

Not-for-profit Corporation[edit]

Frappy, I restored the redirect at Not-for-profit corporation. Your action went against consensus, and you didn't discuss anything before doing this, nor did you present a compelling argument for doing this. By compelling argument, you need to argue that non-profit corporation and non-profit organization are not the same thing. D O N D E groovily Talk to me 04:38, 31 August 2011 (UTC)

Frappyjohn, we moved your Teahouse host profile[edit]

Hello Frappyjohn! Thank you for being a host at the Teahouse. However, we haven't heard from you lately, so our bot has moved your Host profile from the host landing page to the host breakroom. No worries; you can always just Check in and our bot will move your profile back. Editing any Teahouse-related page will do the same thing for you. If you would prefer not to receive reminders like this, you can unsubscribe here. Thanks for your help at the Teahouse! HostBot (talk) 03:50, 2 May 2013 (UTC)

IRC office hours for wiki-mentors and Snuggle users[edit]

Hi. We're organizing an office hours session with the Teahouse to bring in mentors from across the wiki to try out Snuggle and discuss it's potential to support mentorship broadly. The Snuggle team would appreciate it if you would come and participate in the discussion. We'll be having it in #wikimedia-officeconnect on Wed. July 17th @ 1600 UTC. See the agenda for more info. --EpochFail(talkwork), Technical 13 (talk), TheOriginalSoni (talk) 17:29, 12 July 2013 (UTC)


Hi, you added a "clarification needed" to the etymology section, but it's not clear to me what you find unclear, and I don't see anything in Talk.... Can you be more specific? Thanks. --Macrakis (talk) 23:20, 2 December 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the nudge. I was thrown off by "Cos" being the first subject of the etymology, mistook it as an incongruous first reference, completely missing the beginning few words of the article stating that Romaine is also known as Cos. I went to the talk page and saw the discussion: It would appear that users of each term were not previously aware of the other term. I searched for some discussion of the usage of the two terms and found only one reference, stating that "Cos" is used in Great Britain. I added that fact, cited it, and removed my {clarification needed}, although further clarification would be nice! --Frappyjohn (talk) 00:35, 3 December 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for the fix! It turns out that "romaine" is quickly catching up to "cos" in the UK [1], and that "cos", though pretty much unknown in the U.S., is fairly widely used in Australia and other areas. (Google ["romaine lettuce" site:au] is about 3x ["cos lettuce" site:au].) --Macrakis (talk) 00:46, 3 December 2013 (UTC)
