DYK nomination of Article[edit]

DYK nomination of U. Grant Miller Library[edit]

Symbol question.svg Hello! Your submission of U. Grant Miller Library at the Did You Know nominations page has been reviewed, and there still are some issues that may need to be clarified. Please review the comment(s) underneath your nomination's entry and respond there as soon as possible. Thank you for contributing to Did You Know! Awadewit (talk) 17:54, 23 June 2009 (UTC)

A friendly FYI[edit]

Just so you know, generally {{db-u1}} is only used on pages in your own userspace (for example: User:Thingg/sandbox). {{db-g7}} or {{db-author}} (both are the same template) is more generic and it is usually used if the page isn't in your userspace. In practice, it doesn't really make any difference which one you use because they all mean the same thing: ("this is my page. I don't want it any more. please delete it.") but I just wanted to let you know. A belated welcome to Wikipedia by the way! :) Thingg 05:07, 30 June 2009 (UTC)

Sackville House[edit]

Nice work! I visited the W&J campus a week ago, for the first time; it's definitely a nice-looking campus. Have you ever heard of a building around campus known as the "Sackville House", on E. Wheeling St.? I tried to find it, but my best guess is that it's been torn down and replaced with the new fine arts center. Nyttend (talk) 03:12, 25 April 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the note; however, I did notice the house that you mention. I parked farther east on Wheeling (just barely west of the Wade Ave. intersection) and walked to McMillan Hall, stopping for the Sackville House. I photographed the house that you're talking about, only to notice that it had a different number than the one given for the Sackville House. Nyttend (talk) 04:17, 25 April 2010 (UTC)
I still believe that the house is gone. Its National Register nomination form includes a map, but there's nothing specifically marked as being the house on the map on page 5. Moreover, look at the picture; I don't remember seeing this house anywhere along Wheeling, and the shadows on Google Maps' satellite view don't seem to show any such house. Errors such as Canonsburg for the administration building are quite rare; I doubt that there's such a significant error here. I'll be happy if you can show me that there really is an error, and that it's still in existence :-) Nyttend (talk) 05:05, 26 April 2010 (UTC)
It's not the only situation that a landmarked building doesn't stay in existence for long after it's designated: check out Holy Rosary Catholic Church (St. Marys, Ohio), which was listed on the National Register a full year after it was demolished. Thanks for the link to Shorty's; I'm quite impressed by the 23,000 signatures especially. Nyttend (talk) 12:05, 26 April 2010 (UTC)
I was really only concerned with buildings on the National Register, so the only other building that I photographed was McMillan Hall. I did get several pictures of that, so I suspect that they could be useful; I've just not gotten around to uploading them yet. Nyttend (talk) 03:24, 8 May 2010 (UTC)

New page patrol[edit]

Hi, since you seem to be creating a lot of new pages recently (I'm looking through the old college football seasons), you might want to consider applying to be a autoreviewer so that your pages are skipped on new page patrol. Thanks! -- Ricky81682 (talk) 07:02, 2 June 2010 (UTC)

  • No thanks, but thanks for offering.--GrapedApe (talk) 19:06, 2 June 2010 (UTC)
I honestly wasn't aware of this discussion until after I gave you autoreviewer. So, here are your new duties: continue exactly as you had been doing before. "Autoreviewer" is a misnomer; it should be "autoreviewed". All it means is that you, GrapedApe, are considered someone who can be trusted to not create inappropriate pages (in all namespaces, not just articles)... and that you do it often enough that it's more efficient to just mark them all as 'approved' by default. This gets you out of my backlogs (which are typically +3 weeks long). DS (talk) 13:03, 8 June 2010 (UTC)
    • Well...as long as it comes with no responsibilities and I don't have to do anything... Thanks for the confidence!--GrapedApe (talk) 04:05, 9 June 2010 (UTC)

Review[edit]

You're welcome. I can't let these things pass me by without having a bit of a look at them! Good work, by the way. The Rambling Man (talk) 19:03, 2 June 2010 (UTC)

OK, I'll try and have a proper look later on. Immediate thoughts are that you're missing accessdates on some of the web references, you might want to think about having the tables sortable by surname and appointment date (not hugely important, probably), and that the key in the notes section might be better located earlier, so we don't have to wait to find out what the symbols mean.

Speedy deletion nomination of John Canon[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

You may also wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles. See the Article Wizard.

Thank you.

A tag has been placed on John Canon requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article, which appears to be about a real person, individual animal(s), an organization (band, club, company, etc.), or web content, does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not indicate the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable. If this is the first page that you have created, then you should read the guide to writing your first article.

If you think that you can assert the notability of the subject, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the article (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag - if no such tag exists then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hangon tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the article's talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would confirm the subject's notability under Wikipedia guidelines.

For guidelines on specific types of articles, you may want to check out our criteria for biographies, for web sites, for bands, or for companies. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. Everard Proudfoot (talk) 05:45, 13 June 2010 (UTC)

Reviewer[edit]

Redaktor Wikipedia 600px.png

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, will be commencing a a two-month trial at approximately 23:00, 2010 June 15 (UTC).

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under flagged protection. Flagged protection is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. The Rambling Man (talk) 16:06, 15 June 2010 (UTC)

Examiner[edit]

I understand the timeline. But the articles are on a site that is now blacklisted. The blacklisting doesn't exempt certain dates. It simply blacklists the site, period. Niteshift36 (talk) 04:07, 22 June 2010 (UTC)

The problem is the intermix. Baltimore Examiner, Washington Examiner, SF Examiner and Examiner.com were all under the same company and used the same url, examiner.com. Washington Examiner is still owned by them, but is a separate part of the business. At the same time, there were the same ones currently on Examiner.com writing under that URL too. So not only do you have to parse out which city, but which dates and then decide whether it was a Baltimore Examiner writer or a writer for the Baltimore edition of Examiner.com. It's not as simple as just setting a cut off date. Niteshift36 (talk) 04:29, 22 June 2010 (UTC)

Another Mises Inst. vanity page for deletion[edit]

There are a few other articles out there like the bio of Jeffrey_Herebener:Mises Institute vanity pages for non-notable academics with WP:PROF and WP:UNDUE problems.

  • Thanks, and I agree that this fellow isn't notable. There are a lot of similar pages, and it would be a chore to dig through them all. Please keep me posted.--GrapedApe (talk) 03:20, 28 June 2010 (UTC)

Chase Clements[edit]

Greetings. I came here wondering if you could supply a source for the Date of Death for Chase Clements, as I was unaware of what SSDI was. I see from earlier conversions that SSDI is the Social Security Death Index. So, now I'm intrigued. How does one search the SSDI?--GrapedApe (talk) 16:07, 29 June 2010 (UTC)

Hi. In order to search the SSDI, you just need to go to http://ssdi.rootsweb.ancestry.com/ and fill in the information (advanced search is usually better for common names) and, while you cannot link directly to the results, you can create a convenience link by clicking on the SS-5 Letter link, which gives you this (for George Clements, anyways). Generally it's better to then use the date you find to do a Google news archive search for an obituary, but that doesn't always work (if the obituary doesn't exist or was never uploaded etc.) You might run into WP:BLP problems if you use it for someone who is still thought to be living (since it might be construed to be original research), but in this case, Clements' NFL profile lists him as deceased, so there shouldn't be a problem. Canadian Paul 22:03, 29 June 2010 (UTC)
    • Wow, thank you very much! I'm surprised that there isn't an SSDI citation template. Maybe one could be created?--GrapedApe (talk) 03:30, 30 June 2010 (UTC)
I just did some searching and, apparentely, there is one! So that should be useful in the future. Canadian Paul 15:20, 30 June 2010 (UTC)
Wow, that's almost exactly the kind of thing I was thinking of. One last question: Is there a more reliable source for the SSDI than rootsweb? Does the Social Security office publish it in an authoritative way? Or is the rootsweb version considered pretty reliable?--GrapedApe (talk) 16:54, 30 June 2010 (UTC)
As far as I know, the SSDI is the only way to access the United States Death Master File. As far as reliability, it's just as likely to make a typo or an error as any news report, so if those are considered reliable, this should be as well. Canadian Paul 15:03, 1 July 2010 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:ECAC logo.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:ECAC logo.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 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).

PLEASE NOTE:

File:WandJseal.png[edit]

Someone reduced the size of File:WandJseal.png and totally reversed the transparency work that you did. I'm wondering if you would kindly be able to look at File:WandJseal.png again and restore the transparency. Also could you check and see if the shrinking of the image caused any artifacts? Sorry to bother you again...--GrapedApe (talk) 21:44, 30 June 2010 (UTC)

No bother. I re-did the downsample with the transparency intact. By the way, maybe the seal falls into the public domain due to age? For example, according to this, p. 20, the first known use of the seal is from 1902. What do you think? —Quibik (talk) 22:33, 30 June 2010 (UTC)

Uniform Images[edit]

Sorry for the delay. Yes, I was the creator of the hockey uniform images, as well as the creator of the baseball uniforms and the original football uniforms (which have since been redone). What questions do you want to ask? --The Silent Wind of Doom (talk) 17:03, 16 July 2010 (UTC)

  • Well, yeah, I guess I am the original creator of the template. I've never thought of the templates as works themselves. I edited my original football uniform to make a hockey uniform. The images themselves are not free, due to the logos, etc, but the templates themselves are certainly open to the public. People have already been using my football and baseball templates to make more uniforms and images than my original work. If you need it to be official and all, though: I, the Silent Wind of Doom, herby release my creations, the templates for my uniform images, under CC-BY-3.0. --The Silent Wind of Doom (talk) 20:14, 19 July 2010 (UTC)

Washington county historical markers[edit]

Hey GrapedApe,

Sorry that I overwrote your last edit to List of Pennsylvania state historical markers in Washington County. I had a large edit that I hadn't yet saved. All the wikilink fixes that you had made were in my edit, except that I retained the official title of each marker to display on the table. I apologize if I stepped on your toes. I really don't care if the titles stay that way, but that is how I was filling them in for the rest of the PA county marker lists. Thanks for your help. I'm done with Washington County for now, so we won't get our edits crossed further. CrazyPaco (talk) 23:53, 21 July 2010 (UTC)

    • Hi GrapedApe. With Niagara's comment here and another's comment at Talk:National Register of Historic Places listings in Washington County, Pennsylvania, you're running into an issue that some/many frequent NRHP article editors have opinions about. There's been some acrimony, in fact, and there's a wide spectrum of views about when starting new NRHP articles is helpful or not. One extreme could be that no article should be started if it is not Featured Article quality, immediately; the other extreme is that any start is an advance, and helpful. I and most others have viewpoints somewhere inbetween. I believe there's no Wikipedia policy reason why an article should not be started, however, and I for one look at your new articles indexed in National Register of Historic Places listings in Washington County, Pennsylvania as a contribution. I agree with Niagara and others that more in any one article is better, though, so if you can follow Niagara's advice and find your way to add NRHP nomination forms (great references for these), that would be great, though is not required by any absolute rule. There's some instructions meant to help with that posted at wp:NRHPhelp (scroll down to Pennsylvania). I'm not sure how good those instructions are, will try now to use them to further develop one or two of these Washington County articles. Anyhow, thanks for your contributions, and please consider joining the NRHP WikiProject and/or participating at its Talk page(shortcuts wp:NRHP and wt:NRHP). --doncram (talk) 18:02, 25 July 2010 (UTC)
    • P.S. Hey, i am trying to develop the Beallsville Historic District one a bit more, now, for example, using the NRHP nomination document available for it. Also, I noticed your comment about getting Pennsylvania state staff involved in correcting info about one of the NRHP entries, relative to the NRHP's NRIS system data about the place. That's great. You should know that we have an error note collection system about NRHP errors, at wp:NRIS info issues PA for Pennsylvania items. I have tried corresponding with the NRHP about fixing errors regarding other states, but I don't believe anyone has been working on getting Pennsylvania-related errors corrected. Thanks for working on that one! --doncram (talk) 20:53, 25 July 2010 (UTC)
      • Thank you for the notes. Frankly, I'm surprised that creating stub articles on obviously note-worthy subjects can arouse such negativity, like this rude comment. I fail to see how creating those stubs--with a reference, a full infobox, and relevant categories--can possibly be a bad thing. Featured articles don't spring fully-formed from the mind of contributors: they must start somewhere. Thanks for trying to explain what the dispute is all about, rather than just being nasty. I'll take a look at the Beallsville article. However, I'll probably steer clear of other NRHP articles, because I'd rather not be harassed by some self-appointed arbiters of protocol at the NRHP project. --GrapedApe (talk) 21:13, 25 July 2010 (UTC)
        • Please don't be discouraged in article creation. Stub articles aren't ideal, but how many featured articles started out as stubs in the first place? I stubbed the entire National Register of Historic Places listings in Florida about 4 years ago, with basic two to three sentence stubs. I did put in a couple of extra refs in each one, though. Part of the problem with the short-short stubs is that they used to have deletion attempts made on them frequently, due to insufficient assertion of notability. Not as much of an issue now, but it is something to think about, when creating any stub. My philosophy, though, is that articles have to start somewhere, and it's easier to expand something already existing. Some of us don't have the attention span to create extensive and gloriously referenced articles. But stubs can be expanded, that's what they're for. Some of the ones I created have. I'm all about quantity. Oh, and quality too, I suppose. My two pence, for what it's worth. :) --Ebyabe (talk) 21:28, 25 July 2010 (UTC)
          • Well, I visited to try to explain the rude-type comment, which i thot would be disturbing (and i think it was meant to be). I cannot justify that behavior by another editor. To be clear, I think it is fine that you created the articles, with a reference, etc., as you say, and it is a positive contribution. I wonder, do you have connection to the Washington County area, and would you be able to take and upload pictures of any of these?
          • If you might be interested, one area where I could use some similar help, and where your creating articles would be welcomed, is National Register of Historic Places listings in Fairfield County, Connecticut. I am working there on both creating new articles and also on developing them and adding NRHP nomination document references. There are about 15 remaining red-links there, and I would be very glad if you would start them, and I also believe i can assure you that others would not interfere negatively there. Others have not been bothering me there, and I would surely object strenuously if anyone did interfere negatively. Any which way, thanks again for your contributions. --doncram (talk) 15:28, 26 July 2010 (UTC)

I do not review at GA often and it has been some time since I did a GA review. Because GA reviews are done by just one person, my experience is that there is somewhat more variation in what passes and what does not. If the history were expanded a bit in the modern era, I think it would have a good chance at GAN. Ruhrfisch ><>°° 02:26, 8 August 2010 (UTC)

Deleted photos[edit]

GrapedApe,

I notice that the administrator User:Phantomsteve seems to have deleted a few of your images (File:4thavepgh.jpg and File:GatewayCenter.jpg), that you seemed to have taken and were used in, and valuable for illustrating, a couple of Pittsburgh articles. This administrator cited ‎ "(F9: Unambiguous copyright violation: from www.cyburbia.org/forums/showthread.php?t=26389 ("©1994-2010 Cyburbia"))", which seems unusual, because he is citing a copyright violation based on someone posting those photos in a thread on a public message board. Can you verify that these were your photos? I would like to get them restored to Wikipedia. Thanks.CrazyPaco (talk) 17:55, 13 August 2010 (UTC)

Hey, thanks for the reply. Don't know how I got the uploader confused. (must have been that they were here) Thanks for setting me straight. It's still strange that the reasoning for deletion was that they were posted on a public message board. The copyright does not apply to the photo, but if wasn't that user's photo, then I guess it doesn't matter. CrazyPaco (talk) 00:51, 14 August 2010 (UTC)
Regarding Conk, yeah, I saw that Cathedral crop thing (btw, I do appreciate you defending it). Honestly though, while I don't like not being attributed, I've pretty much come to the conclusion that those things are going to happen if I'm going to upload images. I've seen my pic of the CoL (and others) on other websites, and there is really nothing you can do about it. That comes with the territory of having it accessible to everyone. I don't like Conk's behavior, but I'd rather have the project take the high road and give him his due process on those images which only would cost a couple of weeks delay. He/she has seemed to have also uploaded what appears to be some legit images. It did happened to me once where I had an image of mine tagged for PUF just because of how it looked. Now that said, I didn't have Conk's track record, but still...and some of my images have been scanned from older developed photos that I have taken so there is no exif, so I guess that is where I'm coming from on this. Hey, btw, great work on all the W&J stuff. Cheers..CrazyPaco (talk) 02:10, 28 August 2010 (UTC)
Hey, btw, a simple google image search pulled up the Children's Museum image as a © violation, so yeah, that should be speedily deleted. For the other images, I still think he should be given the opportunity to speak if lacking similar hard evidence. CrazyPaco (talk) 02:43, 28 August 2010 (UTC)
I'll help you with sifting through Conk's stuff. What exactly would you like me to work on? Do you want me to try to find the original source images for speedy deletion? CrazyPaco (talk) 03:55, 28 August 2010 (UTC)

Statue Photo[edit]

I contacted Canonsburg Chamber of Commerce and learned there is someone there who does have a copyright on her photo of it that is used for post cards. Every photo I have found elsewhere has some type of copyright issues to it. There is a chance she may give permission for WP to use a photo or photos from the post card(s) on the Perry Como page. Would something of this nature be acceptable? If so, I might need to ask your help in the right way of tagging the image if we get any from the lady.

  • My research indicates that a "scratch race" or "scratch round" is used to reduce the number of competitors. So you could have it in running, bicycle racing, etc. It is another name for a preliminary round. Could you please check your source to see if it is in fact a separate event or sport? Perhaps the source is indicating an elimination/preliminary round of one of the sports already listed in the sentence? Thanks, Racepacket (talk) 03:45, 10 September 2010 (UTC)

Image Question[edit]

Re: the Dick Biondi page. Am aware where I can get one with the original owner being WCFL (AM). The station owner (Chicago Federation of Labor) sold the station in 1978; the call letters on the AM band died out in 1987. Am aware that it's a lot harder in the case of living persons, and Biondi fits that category. So before I possibly create issues by this, can you tell me if an image with this type of background would be acceptable for use there?

Can we use this photo?[edit]

You understand photo copyright law, so I'm deferring to you. I was wondering if there's any chance that the photo on this page of Danny Heater as a 17-year old basketball player can be legally used? It would be for Heater's article, of course. Jrcla2 (talk) 13:19, 20 October 2010 (UTC)

Washington & Jefferson College[edit]

You worked hard... and it is difficult to get people to review the article... I have an idea of what you go through, because I recently spent some time in developping the French article on the University of Heidelberg (Université de Heidelberg).

I read it quickly through and I have a few comments I'd like to discuss with you first. In some case I find the history very detailed, for example, William E. Slemmons apparently did not do much, so I would not expect to find him in the main article. On the other hand I think Relations with the city of Washington belongs to the history of the university. --Anneyh (talk) 17:31, 19 December 2010 (UTC)

Copyvio tags[edit]

I see that you tagged a number of images (mostly related to brass Rat) as possible Copyvios. However, I don't see that you notified the uploader of the image. In some cases, there may be a simple answer, for example, if the creator of the image was a member of the ring committee, it is not impossible that the creator also added the image to the MIT page. I'm like to hear from some of them before deleting, but they haven't been informed.--SPhilbrickT 15:37, 27 January 2011 (UTC)

You are continuing to tag images without informing the uploader. Courtesy indicates that you provide a notification.--SPhilbrickT 23:43, 27 January 2011 (UTC)

W&J football-related[edit]

Hi GrapedApe – a few things to note regarding W&J football coaches.

  1. I upgraded the W&J football coach navbox per new WP:CFB standardization. While doing so, I noticed that you never put R. LeBlanc Lynch in List of Washington & Jefferson Presidents head football coaches, even though the 2007 W&J football media guide lists him as the first coach spanning from 1891 into part of the 1892 season.
  2. In the coach navbox, I listed J. J. Clark as an interim head coach, because according to the 2007 media guide, he was the head coach for only 4 games in 1892. If Lynch is listed as the head coach for 1891 and 1892, this (to me anyway) signifies that Clark was an interim. If you disagree please raise the issue and we will try to hash it out.
  3. I happened to find that there is a mention of R. LeBlanc Lynch in the article St. James Episcopal Church (Amesbury, Massachusetts). I would be stunned if the Reverend and the football coach weren't one in the same. I was thinking perhaps this might interest you in creating his article (if you can find the sources)? Anywho, that's about all for now. Cheers! Jrcla2 (talk) 13:59, 16 February 2011 (UTC)

List of Alpha Phi Omega chapters (chronological) & List of Alpha Phi Omega chapters (geographical)[edit]

While I appreciate that for most of the social fraternities that changing the link from Washington & Jefferson College to Greek organizations at Washington & Jefferson College makes sense, Alpha Phi Omega is not mentioned at all in that Greek Organizations page. Since you seem to have an interest in the page (or at least mentioning the page on your personal page), I thought I'd talk to you before reverting since adding Alpha Phi Omega to the Greek Organizations page would also be a solution. Having said that, there are probably other schools with pages in Category:Lists of chapters of United States student societies by college where they mention Alpha Phi Omega and thus the link makes sense.Naraht (talk) 10:51, 23 February 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for uploading File:Theta Delta Chi crest.png. You provided a source, but it is difficult for other users to examine the copyright status of the image because the source is incomplete. Please consider clarifying the exact source so that the copyright status may be checked more easily. It is best to specify the exact Web page where you found the image, rather than only giving the source domain or the URL of the image file itself. Please update the image description with a URL that will be more helpful to other users in determining the copyright status.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source in a complete manner. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page or me at my talk page. Thank you. Eeekster (talk) 04:55, 13 November 2011 (UTC)

Mother of Fraternities article dispute[edit]

Greetings. A brief note of acknowledgment of your seeking to move a disagrement over content at the Mother of Fraternities article towards a resolution this past May 16th. I'm sorry that I did not contribute to the discussion at that time. I found the behavior of user 71.106.150.61 so frustrating that it resulted in a six month hiatus from Wikipedia just to chill out.

I see the article reverted to its inadequately supported state in the wake. I'm not interested in banging my head against the wall with that user again. If anything ever works out for the best, do drop a note. Thanks. Wikiuser100 (talk) 17:03, 17 November 2011 (UTC)

Deletion discussion about Touched: The Jerry Sandusky Story[edit]

Hello, GrapedApe, and thanks for contributing to Wikipedia!

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 Touched: The Jerry Sandusky Story, which I encourage you to do. If you have any questions, feel free to ask at the Help Desk.

Speedy deletion declined: MC Lars discography[edit]

December 2011[edit]

Information.svg Hi GrapedApe. Thank you for your work on patrolling new pages and tagging for speedy deletion. I'm just letting you know that I declined your deletion request for Babyboom (EP), a page that you tagged for speedy deletion, because the criterion you used or the reason you gave does not cover this kind of page. Please take a moment to look at the suggested tasks for patrollers and review the criteria for speedy deletion. Particularly, the section covering non-criteria. Such pages are best tagged with proposed deletion, proposed deletion for biographies of living persons, or sent to the appropriate deletion discussion. I just wanted to give you a heads up. While the referenced article did not indicate importance and/or significance, it was not applicable for deletion under the A9 criteria for speedy deletion, due to the existence of the artist's article. In these situations, the general response is to redirect the article to the artist article, in accordance with the guidelines at WP:NALBUMS. If you have questions, feel free to contact me. Best regards, Cind.amuse (Cindy) 20:01, 12 December 2011 (UTC)

Henry Schmieder Arboretum[edit]

Hi.

GetCITED[edit]

Hi. Just to let you know, I've removed the speed deletion tag from GetCITED because it does make a claim of importance : "It indexes over 3,000,000 publications from over 300,000 authors." Also it has already been the subject of an AfD the result of which was no consensus; this would suggest that deletion is potentially controversial and therefore it is not a good candidate for speedy deletion. --Mrmatiko (talk) 13:57, 19 December 2011 (UTC)

File:Weeping statue.jpg[edit]

I'm wondering about your proposed deletion of the above file. It was uploaded from Flickr, with a free license 4.5 years ago. Unfortunately, the free license cannot be checked NOW, because the original photog is no longer on Flickr. It seems to me that the uploader probably followed the rules as they existed 4.5 years ago, and that if you had wanted to check the license you had plenty of time to do it earlier. Best to AGF now. Smallbones (talk) 04:22, 2 January 2012 (UTC)

  • So, your argument is that Wikipedia should host content without any evidence that it is freely licensed...because it probably is OK?--GrapedApe (talk) 04:24, 2 January 2012 (UTC)
    • No, I am simply stating that the file has been OK for 4.5 years, it was uploaded in Good Faith (probably according to the rules then in force). It seems to me that you've missed your chance to challenge the license. Otherwise, rules can be changed and enforcement practices shift, resulting in the possible deletion of ANY file on Commons. Nobody wants that , do they? Smallbones (talk) 14:04, 2 January 2012 (UTC)
      • HOw do you know that the file has "been OK" for 4.5 years?--GrapedApe (talk) 14:54, 2 January 2012 (UTC)
        • Certainly the file was unchallenged for 4.5 years. I'll remove the speedy deletion template you put on at Commons. If you want to make a case for deletion, please put it up for regular deletion proceedings. Smallbones (talk) 15:31, 2 January 2012 (UTC)

American Football helmets[edit]

The use of the helmets taken from either http://nationalchamps.net/Helmet_Project/index.htm or http://nationalchamps.net/Helmet_Project/ cant be justified under fair use, your will see from Wikipedia:Files for deletion/2011 December 11#File:LSU Helmet.png the helmet element (not the logo) part image IS replaceable, just go to any game and take a free picture (then make a Fair use claim for the logo element) , and in cases where the logo is not copyrightable as in the case of File:North Texas.png (as it only contains letters) there is no need to make a fair use claim. Mtking (edits) 19:43, 2 January 2012 (UTC)

  • Thanks, but I already made my opinions known.--GrapedApe (talk) 22:30, 2 January 2012 (UTC)
Graped, my understanding of copyright and trademark law and Wikipedia policy is that Wikipedia requires CC-By-SA released images. Irregardless of the team/school logo, the helmet drawing is the problem here in that helmet image itself isn't released for commercial use. Using it in WIkipedia is a copyright violation of the helmet project website that created it as it has not been released it by CC-By-SA. Also, in the case of the Pitt football helmet, for instance, it isn't actually a copyrighted or trademarked logo of the football team so fair use doesn't apply (only "Pitt" is trademarked). It is also replaceable since one could get a photo of any of these helmets (unfortunately, I don't have the current helmet for pitt, although I have two older helmets) or draw our own helmet. None of any other team's helmet images have survived deletion requests and most have now been deleted. CrazyPaco (talk) 06:42, 4 January 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for fixing. Yeh, that historical marker photo looks like a ripoff, unless he can prove he himself took the picture. The second one is a campus building, and suspicion might be raised simply because of the first one. No ripoffs allowed! ←Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? carrots→ 13:28, 13 January 2012 (UTC)

Territorial courts[edit]

I noticed you have been making a number of edits, such as this, indicating judges to territorial courts where "state" judges. This is incorrect, they were all Federal judges appointed by the President of the United States. The territorial courts in turn were similar in organization to the now defunct United States circuit courts. --Allen3 talk 20:05, 12 February 2012 (UTC)

  • I see. I will fix that.--GrapedApe (talk) 21:41, 12 February 2012 (UTC)
    Of the three names you gave, I am 100% certain that Ethelbert Patterson Oliphant was a federal appointee (the Arizona Organic Act, my primary basis of comparison, references Washington's organic act for details of how the territorial government was to be organized). The same is almost certainly true of the other two, but I do not know enough details to make such a statement with complete certainty. The general rule is that U.S. territories in the 19th century elected their legislatures and a Delegate to Congress while governors and territorial supreme court justices were presidential appointees. --Allen3 talk 23:03, 12 February 2012 (UTC)

Speedy deletion declined: Babar Luck[edit]

Hello GrapedApe. I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of Babar Luck, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: Article claims coverage in reliable sources. Thank you. — Malik Shabazz Talk/Stalk 03:53, 23 June 2012 (UTC)

AfD[edit]

I've declined your speedy in view of the age of the article, as I feel it should be dealt with at AfD. As a result, it's at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/President's House Association. Peridon (talk) 12:28, 23 June 2012 (UTC)

Ceres (women's fraternity)[edit]

Couple of things in regards to the article. 1) Yes, I agree it needs secondary sources. 2) Is there are a reason that this article got a 7 days to establish notability rather than a formal AFD?Naraht (talk) 11:56, 28 June 2012 (UTC)

Hello GrapedApe, and thanks for patrolling new pages!

Combination of speedy and proposed deletion[edit]

I don't know if your edit was proper or not. I'm new here so I may just be misinformed, but the PROD page says that when a page with PROD on it is nominated for speedy deletion, the PROD tag should remain in case the speedy deletion is rejected. Obviously your edit does not do that, but my edit to add PROD was under the same rationale, i.e. if speedy is rejected then PROD remains. What is the proper course of action here, do I need to watch that page in order to PROD it if it is not speedily deleted? or what? --RHSN (talk) 23:44, 4 August 2012 (UTC)

Kevin Benson[edit]

Hi GrapedApe. Really nice job creating Kevin Benson, so please don't take offense to the cleanup I did. I am a writer and just wanted to improve on the great work you did in starting the article. The minor rewrites of some of the existing content was in no way a violation of close paraphrasing. It was simply clarifying and improving on what you wrote. If you have concerns about any specific edits, please feel free to let me know what they are. That's a better way to deal with it than simply making a wholesale revert of every edit, which is like throwing out the baby with the bathwater. ;) Here are a few examples of the issues I saw:

  • Describing him as "prominent" is POV.
  • DuBois was spelled incorrectly.
  • You said it was the "Sunday" morning program that was expanded to "Sunday", instead of Saturday expanded to Sunday.
  • Lori Savitch is not notable, so no mention of her name needed.
  • Saying his switch from weekends to weekday mornings was a "promotion" is POV/interpretive. It's not sourced.
  • People bringing food to the station is just not important; the important point is that Benson was on-air all weekend because of the storm.
  • Impassable was spelled incorrectly.
  • We can't say it became the defining moment of his career (which is a conclusion), but we can certainly say that it was described (per the source) as the defining moment in his career. The attribution is vital in that instance.
  • Being a grand marshall in a local parade is not worthy of inclusion. It's just not important at all (in the context of an encyclopedia).
  • Rob Owen is not notable, so no mention of his name is needed; only the fact that he's a P-G reporter is needed.
  • You had the typo "pomition promotion" in the article.
  • Bloomberg's little blip about Benson's weather prediction is simply not important.

Again, I'm very glad you created the article. --76.189.108.102 (talk) 05:25, 28 August 2012 (UTC)

false colors pause?[edit]

Hi, i am bored and stuck somewhere so browsing more widely than usual, and i went and noticed your draft rfc question about false colors. I don't know what you plan, but for sake of the new NRHP / WLM contributor of three pics in Montrose, Colorado, and for sake of precedent about newbies, i hope you will not advance a big rfc on basis of those pics alone. Unfair, unproductive to single out for tons of attention, IMHO. If there are other instances so it is not focussed on this one user and on my personal reaction to include/use those 3, which i might not do again, then I'd say go ahead. About those 3 pics, I would argue the guy gets credit for trying something and we should KEEP the photos, under a grandfathering-in type reasoning. I did think they were neat, not knowing how easy the effect is to create; i would probably personally judge differently in future. My 2 cents to share, as i am killing time. Really glad to see you active, by the way. Cheers. --doncram 17:39, 25 September 2012 (UTC)

  • Thanks for the friendly note, but I think that I'm going to move forward with the RFC. I think that with the WLM coming up, this is a discussion that ought to be had.--GrapedApe (talk)

Proposed deletion of Dozen Bake Shop[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Dozen Bake Shop has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Local bakery, with no claim to actually doing anything other than bake stuff, no claim to why it is notable outside of it's location, it has received local coverage, as you would expect for a local business, the only non-local coverage is a Washington Post blog post, which is more about the then owner James Gray and how he set it up.

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.

CSD[edit]

I think you need to review WP:CSD, and WP:N before proposing any more articles for speedy deletion. I've undone 2 of your requests today, and I see a few more that others have done in your contribution history. In the most recent one, Emocapella, the article sites 4 separate independent reliable sources; as long as those sources do actually discuss the group, that's more than enough to meet WP:GNG, much less to pass the "assertion of importance" requirement of CSD #A7. Plus, the article's been on Wikipedia for over 6 years; it's highly unlikely that CSD will apply. Looking at your talk page I see a number of other pages that you've tagged have been declined. Please note that improperly nominating a large number of articles for speedy deletion is disruptive, and can have negative effects on other contributing users. If you have questions about how the criteria work, feel free to ask, but please don't do any more nominating that isn't more carefully thought out. Qwyrxian (talk) 09:11, 24 February 2013 (UTC)

  • I don't agree that those had "credibly indicate[d] the importance or significance", which is an important part of the CSD criteria that you conveniently did not quote. Nonetheless, I recognize that I apparently have a quicker trigger finger on CSDs that most. In the future, I'd appreciate you refraining from describing a difference of opinion as disruptive, which is an action that is itself disruptive.--GrapedApe (talk) 15:50, 24 February 2013 (UTC)
An article which contains multiple references in valid reliable sources is never a valid CSD, because we already know the article meets notability requirements. "Being discussed in a reliable source" is itself a credible claim of importance. It may or may not be enough to meet WP:GNG, if you could show they weren't the subject of detailed discussion, but that would need an AfD to sort out. Remember, CSD exists only for the absolutely most obvious cases, as a way to speed up the deletion process for articles that basically everyone would agree are deletable. Differences of opinion are fine, but that doesn't mean you can just nominate anything you like. I'm merely trying to point out a matter of concern, as there is real harm done when articles that obviously pass muster are nominated for deletion. Keep in mind this is coming from someone who is generally labeled a deletionist. Qwyrxian (talk) 16:01, 24 February 2013 (UTC)

National Register Information System at AFD[edit]

Because the nominator of Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/National Register Information System and the page's creator have just been interaction-banned, I've closed this discussion.

List of papabili in the 2013 papal conclave for deletion?[edit]

Could you kindly join in and give a helping hand in assessing and progressing. A well reasoned assessment with reference to Wikipedia policies & guidelines would clearly be needed. I feel that the deletion discussion would have been slam-dunk case if the papal election frenzy and the Media circus would not have entered the scene. Arguments like I "feel" so and so is unfortunately a notoriously difficult assessment tool and not always agreeable with encyclopedic sentiments. A bad example of a non-convincing argument from the discussion in question is: Well what utter crap! I'm a reader of Wikipedia and I found myself at this article because I wanted to know about the likely candidates, and a useful article I found it. Well I don't care whether it meets whatever "core policies" you're talking about, but I do care whether it provides me with information I need. And it does, so cut the crap about deleting it.
What arguments i.e. policies & guidelines do you think are most convincing or/and could some be left out?

So far these points have been cited as relevant :

KEEP
WP:GNG (cited once)
DELETE
WP:CRYSTAL
WP:OR
WP:V
WP:NOTADVOCATE
WP:NOTOPINION
WP:RNPOV

Hateful yellow textiles[edit]

I love western Pennsylvania, but the Steelers are an exception — thus the title of this section :-) Basically, I've only ever seen "The", "A", "An" included in two kinds of situations: (1) When they're necessary to avoid ambiguity, e.g. as WP:NOUN says, the difference between Crown and The Crown. (2) When they're the titles of literary works, e.g. The New York Times. I'd suggest you ask at a community forum (perhaps Wikipedia:Village pump (miscellaneous) about whether this is close enough to the Times situation to warrant "The". Either way, it's not such a clear situation that it should be moved without discussion somewhere, and it's obscure enough that I'd advise against having this discussion only on the article's talk page. Nyttend (talk) 03:09, 9 October 2013 (UTC)

No big deal. "Speedy close" either means a bad faith nomination or an out-of-process thing, but I hoped that my explanation would make it clear that I was "accusing" you of making a good-faith simple mistake. I probably wouldn't have made this suggestion if you'd gotten any keep or delete votes. Nyttend (talk) 05:16, 9 October 2013 (UTC)

Nomination of The Terrible Towel at RFD[edit]

Hi, I refer to your nomination at Wikipedia:Redirects for discussion/Log/2013 October 9#The Terrible Towel. Since {{db-move}} has been declined this should now go to WP:RM/CM where it can get a full discussion. I regret that WP:RFD is not an appropriate forum to determine controversial page moves. The Whispering Wind (talk) 13:40, 9 October 2013 (UTC)

  • Seriously? Ok--GrapedApe (talk) 22:12, 9 October 2013 (UTC)
    • I have just seen that this was previously at AFD so I regret that you have been passed around the houses. Deletion for page moves at RFD can only take place for uncontroversial moves. Since {{db-move}} has been declined then WP:RM is now the appropriate forum. Sorry, I can understand your frustration. The Whispering Wind (talk) 22:17, 9 October 2013 (UTC)
      • I'm sorry this happened; as the admin who declined the db-move tag, I fully supported the idea of taking it to RFD. I see now that the RFD page says not to have such discussions here, but why close the discussion after someone had already participated in it? It's one thing to move a newly-started discussion (that's why I asked for a speedy close at the AFD), but interrupting a discussion that's already in progress doesn't seem at all helpful. Nyttend (talk) 23:12, 9 October 2013 (UTC)
        • You make a very fair point that I gave thought to before closing. RFD is a very poor forum for determining controversial page moves. It gets much less attention than RM and the editors there have different interests and expertise. Also, in this case, the discussion is not at all about the redirect and entirely about our naming conventions. No course of action was ideal. However, discussion had only just begun and there had been just a single comment, and I formed the view that discussing something in the correct forum, and achieving the best outcome, outweighed losing that one comment.

Broken citations[edit]

Check City of Washington–Washington & Jefferson College relations; citations 6-11, 27, and 29 have some sort of errors. I don't understand citation templates (I've never used them), so I'm not clear what's wrong and am thus unable to fix them myself. Nyttend (talk) 23:12, 9 October 2013 (UTC)

PA historical markers[edit]

Hey GA,

Yeah, unfortunately I think that all of those images where the PA historical markers are the subject of the photo are probably copyright violations. I think all the talk pages for the individual county marker lists have a statement about that placed on their talk pages (see Talk:List of Pennsylvania state historical markers in Adams County). As far as I know, no one has tried to get a release from the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission for any images of plaques or of the text. It's a little complicated because the text is definitely copyrighted, but I'm not sure what that means for the actual physical marker. Is it itself copyrighted as a 3d work of art like a statue? Does releasing the rights to one of your photos mean that the PHMC releases the rights to the plaque and the text? I don't know. I'm not sure how they'd feel about it, actually. However, if you are up to trying to contact them, you should certainly give it a try. Keep me posted if you need me for anything on this. CrazyPaco (talk) 06:16, 14 October 2013 (UTC)

Please correct your initial assertions under Afd for Most weeks ranked number 1 (NCAA football)[edit]

Hi, you initially offered numerous "proofs by assertion" about this page, and I would appreciate if you cleaned them up since other contributors have provided the original sources, mentions by the press, and proof that the NCAA itself tracks this statistic. Your comments were the first and strongest in favor of deletion based partly on these reasons and therefore carry some weight worthy of following wikietiquette (namely, noting your assertions have changed at the place in the article where you made them.)

Linda Katehi: Reorganization and 2011 Occupy protest[edit]

Hello, GrapedApe. Thank you again for your help with the information under the "Work" heading of the Linda Katehi page. I left two new messages on the discussion page for other editors to look over about restructuring the entire article in order to organize the information more logically and about condensing the information about the protest in 2011 so that the section just focuses on Katehi's actions. Here is the new message about reorganizing the page and you'll find my other message directly below that one.

BTW, I could use any opinions or suggestions on templates at the college basketball Wikiproject (see notice). You are probably aware of the ongoing battle at the cfb project about editors enforcing an extremely rigid style and control of content inclusion over 100s of college football navigation templates well beyond basic standard templates. Well they've now extended this to the basketball (actually they tried to bypass the cbb wikiproject claiming consensus from the cfb project, which I believe they don't actually have), and I have no reason to believe they'll stop there. I feel this one-size-fits all lack of any ability for customization is extremely bad for navigating a reader to the most pertinent articles of any particular Wikipedia topic, and therefore, is very detrimental to Wikipedia in general since global and rigid standardization seems to be the goal. IMO, they've (really one or two editors) have been exercising ownership over 100s of these templates in the name of a Wikiproject and I'd like your opinion as to whether I am over reacting or how I should further proceed, or perhaps shouldn't proceed. Am I making too much out of this? CrazyPaco (talk) 12:40, 20 November 2013 (UTC)

RIDC[edit]

Thanks for the heads up GrapedApe, and your contributions to the article. My view from last week was it was ready to go "live" so much appreciation for your efforts on that end. As far as comments by others I'm all for constructive talk page criticism and edits to the article but feel strongly this needs one centralized talk page and thus a live page. I'll save my views for the live article talk page but after reading those other comments I was thinking perhaps expanding on most every research park listed for their own sub-section and integrating the history section in the lead, and the one editors insights were very correct there is an opportunity to say a lot more in the article given the number of citations but again in my view a live article is the place to shape it in that advanced manner. I'll be moving it live within hours unless there is some concern I'm unaware of. Market St.⧏ ⧐ Diamond Way 21:48, 8 November 2013 (UTC)
