Illustrator Substubs[edit]

Hi there. I notice that you've been adding a whole lot of substubs on illustrators (eg: Lou Myers). Please provide more information than "XXX is an illustrator" when you create new articles: Even something on what they illustrated, which country they illustrate in, anything to give the article some value, and to substantiate what you've written (right now, for all anyone knows, you made up the names). Rather wait until you have information on a topic before creating the article: If someone clicked Randompage, and got that, they might have quite a poor opinion of the Wikipedia. (Sorry if this sounds a little harsh). --Kieran 16:04, 11 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Isaac Asimov article[edit]

Actually, note that it wasn't 63.202.21.27 that vandalised the Asimov article, it was 65.15.241.10. Also, leaving messages on user_talk pages is more customary. Alai 04:38, 21 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Stubs[edit]

Hello! Thanks for your contributions. I just noted that you occasionally add a tag to articles with a format such as something-stub. This is good, but please make sure the something-stub template exists before you add it, otherwise the article will have a weird red link at the end that doesn't have anything do with stubs. If it doesn't exist, you can create it yourself and then add it — but please do this before you add it to the article. Thanks! OvenFresh² 00:22, 26 Mar 2005 (UTC)


Hello there. Thank you for editing the article Circumcision and Media Ethics which is listed on VFD. Please feel free to vote on this issue. Thank you very much for your contribution to this article. Sirkumsize 03:07, 31 Mar 2005 (UTC)

illustrators[edit]

I have a suggestion: Rather than create lots of sub-stubs that only say "so-and-so is an illustrator", why not create better articles for fewer people - tell what sort of an illustrator, where he/she is based, for how long they've worked and for whom - and particularly, telling why this illustrator should be featured in wikipedia when millions and millions of others aren't! That will help make sure your work surivives, too: Really short articles like this are sometimes taken as "vanity" pieces and deleted on sight! - DavidWBrooks 15:57, 11 Apr 2005 (UTC)

I would echo that point. If you have a list you are using, why not create that list with red links. Link to the list from suitable articles. And write longer pieces about the individuals where you can. Don't just write "Xxxxx Y. Zzzzz is an illustrator". Ever. Otherwise I will assume you are just writing about your friends and contacts, and may remove the substubs on sight. --Henrygb 01:00, 15 Apr 2005 (UTC)

I would also echo that point, with an extra incentive... IMO these minimal substubs qualify for speedy deletion, under articles case #1. See Wikipedia:Votes for deletion/Cliff Condak, and I'd guess Steve Karchin and the others will not be far behind. So the result of your efforts is likely to be a waste of a lot of people's time, including your own. Andrewa 06:57, 12 May 2005 (UTC)

Edit summary[edit]

When editing an article on Wikipedia there is a small field labelled "Edit summary" under the main edit-box. It looks like this:

Edit summary text box

The text written here will appear on the Recent changes page, in the page revision history, on the diff page, and in the watchlists of users who are watching that article. See m:Help:Edit summary for full information on this feature.

When you leave the edit summary blank, some of your edits could be mistaken for vandalism and may be reverted, so please always briefly summarize your edits, especially when you are making subtle but important changes, like changing dates or numbers. Thank you.

Oleg Alexandrov 16:06, 18 Apr 2005 (UTC)

And thank you for your great work in classifying stubs. Oleg Alexandrov 16:09, 18 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Baishakh[edit]

The article is in no way related to India. So the stub sorting done is completely wrong. I do understand the good-natured effort, but it is like assigning a France-stub to a Germany related article, which is incorrect. --Ragib 04:41, 20 Apr 2005 (UTC)


George Shrinks[edit]

If you have anymore information about George Shrinks please add whatever you have. --Contrib 15:56, 25 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Name-stub[edit]

Hi Hailey - I note you've created a new stub category. Did you realise that stub categories should normally be cleared by Wikipedia:WikiProject Stub sorting before creation? That way they can be vetted to check that there are a viable number of stubs (at least 60-100) and that the category does not cross the existing stub hierarchy before the stub is created.

If you can provide any information on why these stubs were created, please add a note to entry for these stubs at Wikipedia:WikiProject Stub sorting/Criteria#Newly-discovered stub categories giving the reason for the stubs. In addition, if there is any Wikiproject associated with these stubs add that information.

In the case of name-stub it looks it will be a useful category, but if you're planning to make any more categories, we'd like to know first! Oh, and if you're interested in helping sort stubs, we're always looking for new members of the project!

One more thing - the single most important thing a stub template must have is its own dedicated category. Otherwise, you're just consigning the stubs marked into the void, or worse, sending them back into Category:Stub, which we're trying to clear them from. I have created a Category:Name stubs for the template... Grutness|hello? Grutness.jpg 07:19, 28 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Mmm. You've been busy, haven't you... ride-stub, tourism-stub, furniture-stub... any more? Grutness|hello? Grutness.jpg 11:02, 2 May 2005 (UTC)

Removing stub tags[edit]

I've seen you remove stub tags from articles without replacing them with something better, although the tags seemed to fit. Examples include Akimoto Tsubasa, Ahmad Zaki, "John Wayne" Edwards, A. K. Fazlul Huq, and Aaron Ruell. In some cases, there was another stub tag left, in other cases, there wasn't. What's the reasoning behind that? Rl 16:34, 30 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Famous dogs[edit]

Thanks for adding all those dogs to the breed articles. Were you working off the List of historical dogs list as well as Category:Famous dogs? Just checking-- Elf | Talk 20:05, 2 May 2005 (UTC)

Kincardine Bridge stub[edit]

Hi. I noticed you changed Kincardine Bridge from stub to UK-related stub. Just want to mention that the Friarton Bridge entry, which I worked on recently, was made a UK Buildings and Structures stub and you might want to consider using that for Kincardine too? --Erath 13:56, May 4, 2005 (UTC)

more stub stuff[edit]

Hi, Hailey:

I noticed another of your "not-really-a-stub-tag" stub tags on outline. (It was {{writing-stub}}.) I see other editors have already mentioned this to you. I think it would be really nice if you would go through some of the articles you've tagged (check your "User contributions") and retag them with viable stub tags. I've found it personally useful to put a link to Wikipedia:WikiProject Stub sorting/Stub types on my user page so I have a quick reference to the list of approved stub tags. Thanks, Soundguy99 08:03, 6 May 2005 (UTC)


Quick stub tip[edit]

Hi there. You tagged Platonic_epistemology with {{phil-stub}} - a stub type which doesn't exist. I've amended it to {{philosophy-stub}} for you. If you're not sure whether a stub type exists, you can preview the page as normal; and if in doubt then typing the full subject name (eg philosophy and not just phil) will always yield the desired result. Best wishes, reetep 20:00, 3 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Bert Williams[edit]

"In hospital" was not a typo, though it may have been a bit of a Briticism. "In hospital" would be the dominant use in the UK: "in the hospital" would only be used if a particular hospital were at issue. (And I bet your form of English would prefer "was" to "were" in that last sentence. Neither is wrong, these are just matters of language variation.) -- Jmabel | Talk 18:16, July 31, 2005 (UTC)

Image:Aunt jemima.gif[edit]

Hi, I just wanted to let you know I added an {{unverified}} tag to Image:Aunt jemima.gif. If you still know where the image comes from and/or under which licence it can be used, it'd be great if you could fill in that information on its description page. Thanks. :) -- Schnee (cheeks clone) 20:46, 5 August 2005 (UTC)

Image:9757-l.jpg[edit]

Image deletion warning Image:9757-l.jpg has been listed at Wikipedia:Images and media for deletion. If you feel that this image should not be deleted, please go there to voice your opinion.

If you've been wondering where all the article's you started went to...[edit]

Have you read Wikipedia:Criteria for speedy deletion? Specifically, A7: "An article about a real person that does not assert that person's importance or significance." You have created lots of articles of the form "X is a Y." These just get quickly swept up as falling under that category. It would be more pleasent for everyone if you would add them to Wikipedia:Requested articles(you can add glosses, like you have been, to requests there), and stop adding to the load of Speedy Deletions that need to be done. If you have any questions, please let me know on my talk page! JesseW, the juggling janitor 19:58, 15 September 2005 (UTC)

Just saying hi.[edit]

So...hi! How are things over at Simple English? I reopened my account but I haven't done much since. Gotta run, but I saw your name over on new pages and thought I'd drop over for a howdy. Happy Thanksgiving! - Lucky 6.9 19:38, 23 November 2005 (UTC)

Opa-Locka[edit]

Would you please document your comment about the crime rate in Opa-Locka. I'm not challenging the assertion, but it does need to be documented. -- Dalbury(Talk) 20:49, 27 November 2005 (UTC)

I looked up it up on Crime Rates by cities or something?

Peer review[edit]

Hello! I have just come on your talk page, and right now I'm asking you to comment on the article dealing with The Care Bears Movie II: A New Generation as part of its now-ongoing peer review.

I remember you helped out a lot on the Bears' Simple English article a while ago, so that makes you my best bet.

Please send a reply on the peer page as soon as possible! --Slgrandson 15:21, 2 December 2005 (UTC)


Now I'm focusing on the pages on Care Bears and their first movie, and I'm asking you to look at both articles and tell me what can be done further to improve them. I am intent on making both of them featured articles very soon. Leave comments on their peer pages. Wish me luck! --Slgrandson 04:35, 23 March 2006 (UTC)

Wacky Neighbor[edit]

Hi -- I guess I was taking a small liberty with the term "neighbor." I figured in a show that seldom or never showed anyone's home (Cheers, Barney Miller), certainly there could still be a wacky neighbor -- maybe the wierd guy in the next cubicle, the manager of the restaurant next door, the uniformed officer who wants to be a plainclothes detective, etc. Note The Stuart's comment on 22 August -- he says Joey on Friends isn't a wacky neighbor because he is one of the main characters. So I figured a wacky neighbor could be any supporting or lesser character who is not a main character, and who is kind of quirky. I would argue that Klinger on MASH IS a wacky neighbor: he certainly was quirky, and in such a small "town" as a MASH unit, wasn't everyone a "neighbor"? Same thing with Festus on Gunsmoke: Dodge was a small town. No, it wasn't a sit-com, but the article doesn't state "exclusively in situation comedy." Still, I do respect your opinion on this matter, and I draw my colors. Would it be ok to list "every character other than Oliver and Lisa on Green Acres"? Dogosaurus 06:05, 18 December 2005 (UTC)

Hi![edit]

How are things at Simple? Haven't been there in a long time. - Lucky 6.9 00:07, 30 December 2005 (UTC)

Oh just fine, we were featured on "Somthing Awful's Weekend Web", the week of Christmas, vandalism is out of control.--Hailey 00:10, 30 December 2005 (UTC)

Nice.  :( I tried becoming an admin, but I got absolutely shot down by the head bureaucrat. Heck, I'm a bureaucrat myself at another wiki site and an administrator here! Oh, well...perhaps someday. Keep up the good fight. - Lucky 6.9 00:20, 30 December 2005 (UTC)

Squeezit[edit]

Hello- I added some cats to your article about Squeezit. However, a Yahoo search turned up only results for a device used to squeeze toothpaste tubes. I also could not find it on the General Mills site. Are you sure that you spelled Squeezit correctly? The only product I can think off hand that is similar to what you described is Kool-Aid Coolers. Thanks, Gilliamjf 00:14, 30 December 2005 (UTC)

I remember these thing everyone and their dog use to drink them, when I was a kid.--Hailey 00:16, 30 December 2005 (UTC)

Image Tagging Image:4019 1109 1 md.jpg[edit]

Warning sign
This image may be deleted.

Thanks for uploading Image:4019 1109 1 md.jpg. I notice the image page currently doesn't specify who created the image, so the copyright status is therefore unclear. If you have not created the image yourself then you need to argue that we have the right to use the image on Wikipedia (see copyright tagging below). If you have not created the image yourself then you should also specify where you found it, i.e., in most cases link to the website where you got it, and the terms of use for content from that page.

If the image also doesn't have a copyright tag then you must also add one. If you created/took the picture then you can use {{GFDL}} to release it under the GFDL. If you can claim fair use use {{Non-free fair use in|article name}} or {{fairuse}}. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other images, please check that you have specified their source and copyright tagged them, too. You can find a list of image pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any unsourced and untagged images will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.

Request for edit summary[edit]

Hi. I am a bot, and I am writing to you with a request. I would like to ask you, if possible, to use edit summaries a bit more often when you contribute. The reason an edit summary is important is because it allows your fellow contributors to understand what you changed; you can think of it as the "Subject:" line in an email. For your information, your current edit summary usage is 0% for major edits and 7% for minor edits. (Based on the last 150 major and 27 minor edits in the article namespace.)

This is just a suggestion, and I hope that I did not appear inpolite. You do not need to reply to this message, but if you would like to give me feedback, you can do so at the feedback page. Thank you, and happy edits, Mathbot 03:35, 23 February 2006 (UTC)

vandal?[edit]

Have you seen my comments? I think we need to get a patrol to review all the pages he's edited or take an RFA against him. evrik 22:28, 27 April 2006 (UTC)

Preventing an edit war on the saints[edit]

It was the established operation of the WikiProject Saints to have a section in the info box on a sample prayer. Some editors have been recently been attacking this in the individual articles.

It is my belief that prayers in a literary or historic context are NPOV. I can understand that some may consider the inclusion of a prayer to be hagiographic, but freedom of religion is not freedom from religion.

There is a 3RR about to happen on a number of these articles. I am trying to be philosophical about this, but don’t want to yield the point when what is happening goes against the consensus and borders on vandalism.

It is my understanding that if an editing disagreement occurs that the status quo, in this case leaving the prayers in place, holds until it is resolved. I encourage you to comment on this at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Saints. I have posted my thoughts at the village pump.

Christian Wiki[edit]

Hi,

Just wanted to let you know about a christianity wiki that was recently started and has now moved to it's own server. Because of your interest in the Saints Project and because you are a Lutheran, I think you would be a valuable member of our team and I'd love to have your contributions.

We are just about ready to go live!

As soon as we finalize the CPOV policy, I think we're ready to "go public" with this project and invite the world! We can submit to DMOZ and Google and start getting some real active hits on that site.

Please take a look and see if this project is something you would like to get behind. the URL is: ChristWiki

Would you like some assistance on this project? It's a subject that I have some interest and experience in, and would be happy to help on. Although I must admit that I cannot be counted on to be consistently around, as my attention may wander inadvertantly. :-) But I'm willing!

19XX introductions[edit]

While patroling red category links, I just removed a number of these before registering the pattern. Looking into it further, I see you just added most of them within the last few days. I will stop removing them, but I ask you in response to please build out the categories themselves. Just adding red category links to pages is only 1/2 the job. If the links are to actually be of any use, the categories that they link to need to exist. Thank you in advance. - TexasAndroid 15:54, 10 July 2006 (UTC)

Yeah, 16XX, too. What's up with these new category links? I just noticed a new red one on slide rule and lots of your recent contributions. Are these some kind of generally sanctioned categories, or a new thing of your own?

Please don't revert my user page again[edit]

I'm not sure why you reverted my user page to an older version (see [1]) and then for an explanation said you were RVing vandalism but please don't do this again. There was no vandalism here, only a redesign of my user page that has been up for months. Best, --Alabamaboy 21:26, 26 August 2006 (UTC)

BTW, please don't take this the wrong way. You seem like a very good editor. I'm just don't understand why you did this. Best,--Alabamaboy 21:28, 26 August 2006 (UTC)

Fred Pfeiffer[edit]

Hi Hailey. I was wandering around this evening, and the Random button brought me to the Fred Pfeiffer article you created some time ago. Any chance you could add a category (and maybe a country of origin) to the article so it's not lost forever in stub-land? :) Cheers. --Bookandcoffee 05:29, 8 September 2006 (UTC)

It strikes me as a bit odd[edit]

that you tagged [or something]] Image:2nd-Empire5.jpg with a category that then showed up in red. I'm confused, or is it part of a Master Plan? Carptrash 02:41, 25 September 2006 (UTC)

Maybe--Hailey 02:42, 25 September 2006 (UTC)

Hello! I just wanted to say that I reverted your addition of the nonexistent {{sports}} template and the improper {{Sweden-article-2}} template from Talk:1935-36 in Swedish football and Talk:2003 in Swedish football respectively.

MM dddd in baseball articles[edit]

Just curious... why did you recreate all of the "dates in baseball" articles like October 2 in baseball? Those all went through this AFD and the result was to transwiki and delete all. Now someone has started another AFD here for the same articles. Did you make some change to them? —Wknight94 (talk) 13:06, 8 October 2006 (UTC)

Hi, please don't place categories on images that are from Commons and don't exist here. If you want to categorize them, start an account on commons and categorize them there, creating empty image description pages here isn't helpful. Thanks. - Bobet 07:22, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

The Will[edit]

Hi, a few weeks ago you added the American reality TV series The Will to WPAustralia. I have removed it from this project because I can find nothing in the article to indicate any connection to the country. If there is some connection - maybe it was filmed there? - please add this to the article. Otherwise I'm curious where you saw the connection. (My first guess is perhaps there is an Australian TV series by this name, in which case there needs to be another article made for that program). Cheers! 23skidoo 15:51, 9 November 2006 (UTC)

Tony Eubanks[edit]

I have added a "{{prod}}" template to the article Tony Eubanks, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but I don't believe it satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and I've explained why in the deletion notice (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). Please either work to improve the article if the topic is worthy of inclusion in Wikipedia, or, if you disagree with the notice, discuss the issues at its talk page. Removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, but the article may still be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached, or if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria.

You may contest the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page. Also, please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.

Possible renaming of Wikipedia:WikiProject Saints[edit]

It has been suggested that the above named project be renamed Wikipedia:WikiProject Christian saints. Please express your opinion on this proposed renaming, and the accompanying re-definition of the scope of the project, here. John Carter 17:12, 9 March 2007 (UTC)

First Cut[edit]

A tag has been placed on The First Cut (Rugrats episode), requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a very short article providing little or no context to the reader. 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.

Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself. If you plan to expand the article, you can request that administrators wait a while for you to add contextual material. To do this, affix the template {{hangon}} to the page and state your intention on the article's talk page. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this.

Half and Susanne Zantop[edit]

Deleting Circuses.com on Ankus[edit]

Hi, I wanted to ask you about removing the circuses.com reference on Ankus. I agree that it is propaganda, but it is also the source of some of the information in the article. I think it is better to leave the link there so people can see the nature of the source, rather than leave it looking like some of the hyperbole in the article is unbiased fact. DO you think it might be a good idea to leave it? ThanksMs408 16:38, 24 March 2007 (UTC).

Most of that site is one-sided propaganda about how the circus is evil--Hailey 16:39, 24 March 2007 (UTC)

Building[edit]

Hi. Sorry to shoot you down on that image. The FH is on the left and only a bit of the side shows so not really much point in your cropping it either. Maybe you can take another picture? And ask for a tour while you are there - the Church did a nice job restoring it and would be happy to show it to you. I promise that they will not lock you in a room! --Justanother 19:26, 30 March 2007 (UTC)

Tango (cat) note[edit]

not that the cat is terribly important... but the reason it was a blue link was that it's a redirect to Winston Churchill. However, that page doesn't mention the cat at all. That's why I left it in the list.

As I said, not important. --Alvestrand 19:08, 20 April 2007 (UTC)

Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on Category:Images of North Korea, by another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. The tag claims that it should be speedily deleted because Category:Images of North Korea has been empty for at least four days, and its only content has been links to parent categories. (CSD C1).

To contest the tagging and request that administrators wait before possibly deleting Category:Images of North Korea, please affix the template {{hangon}} to the page, and put a note on its talk page. If the article has already been deleted, see the advice and instructions at WP:WMD.

Orphaned non-free image (Image:Rider3.jpg)[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Rider3.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).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Aksibot 03:36, 27 May 2007 (UTC)

Richard Hess (American painter)[edit]

Richard Hess (American painter) has been proposed for deletion. An editor felt this person might not be notable enough for an article. Please review Wikipedia:Notability (people) for the relevant guidelines. If you can improve the article to address these concerns, please do so.

If no one objects to the deletion within five days by removing the "prod" template, the article may be deleted without further discussion. If you remove the prod template, the article will not be deleted, but if an editor is still not satisfied that it meets Wikipedia guidelines, it may still be sent to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.

Image copyright problem with Image:OldCrow.gif[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:OldCrow.gif. The image has been identified as not specifying the copyright status of the image, which is required by Wikipedia's policy on images. If you don't indicate the copyright status of the image on the image's description page, using an appropriate copyright tag, it may be deleted some time in the next seven days. If you have uploaded other images, please verify that you have provided copyright information for them as well.

Notability of Flush-a-byes[edit]

Information icon.svg

Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on Flush-a-byes, by Mmoneypenny (talk · contribs), another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. The tag claims that it should be speedily deleted because Flush-a-byes seems to be about a person, group of people, band, club, company, or web content, but it 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 assert the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

To contest the tagging and request that administrators wait before possibly deleting Flush-a-byes, please affix the template {{hangon}} to the page, and put a note on its talk page. If the article has already been deleted, see the advice and instructions at WP:WMD. Please note, this bot is only informing you of the nomination for speedy deletion, it did not nominate Flush-a-byes itself.

Victorian High Gothic[edit]

I see where you began a stub for Victorian High Gothic. However, there's already an article for Gothic Revival architecture. I don't know enough about architectural history to know for certain whether they're the same, but I suspect they are. Could Victorian High Gothic productively be turned into a redirect to Gothic Revival architecture? -Ipoellet 23:02, 24 June 2007 (UTC)

Your character subcategories[edit]

Changing from a broad 1951 (etc.) introduction to something like Characters introduced in 1951 makes some sense except that our naming conventions emphasize that we need to stress the fictional nature of fictional characters. It should be Fictional characters introduced in 1951, etc. Also, if you want the subcats to do more than survive, you ought to discuss the new subcats on the CfD talk page to get feedback and to get more people involved. I support the general idea. Doczilla 05:33, 28 June 2007 (UTC) When/if the change is implemented, it ought to be done more methodically. Build up each year's catory when possible. Articles like List of superhero debuts or List of supervillain debuts can aid methodical implementation. Also, each introduction year category article should have an introductory statement so it won't appear red-lettered on the page of every member article.Doczilla 05:35, 28 June 2007 (UTC)

Fair use disputed for Image:MisdemeanorUFO.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading Image:MisdemeanorUFO.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale you have provided for using this image under "fair use" may be invalid. Please read the instructions at Wikipedia:Non-free content carefully, then go to the image description page and clarify why you think the image qualifies for fair use. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If it is determined that the image does not qualify under fair use, it will be deleted within a couple of days according to our Criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 23:23, 13 September 2007 (UTC)

Invitation to WikiProject recruitment for WikiProjects[edit]

Hailey,

Would you be interested in trying to make your (proposed) WikiProject becoming a succes by actively involving yourself in a recruitment agency aimed at establishing an active base of participants for a WikiProject?--Daanschr 11:29, 26 September 2007 (UTC)

Yes I think so? --Hailey 16:10, 26 September 2007 (UTC)

I invited some people who proposed a WikiProject on the WikiProject proposal article. Yuo wanted to start a WikiProject Circus. My recruiting project could help you in finding participants and i hope you want to help others in recruiting participants. That is the central focus. Two of my WikiProjects failed due to a lack of succes, so i am trying something new in order to make these projects a succes.--Daanschr 08:48, 27 September 2007 (UTC)

Russell Brand - propaganda[edit]

I noticed you removed references to Russell Brand winning the Sexiest Vegetarian awards from PETA, claiming these were propaganda. These awards may be blatant publicity stunts by PETA but it is nonetheless a fact that Russell received them and refered to them repeatedly on his BBC Radio 2 show. Do we refuse to even acknowledge events that were motivated in this way? Surely it is more appropriate to mention them and add a note allowing readers to judge for themselves. --Chris Wood (talk) 09:52, 19 November 2007 (UTC)

Great to see you working on Find-A-Grave L/La![edit]

see you're working here again (you were there before me) - hope you like the breaks I made!

While working on Wikipedia:Find-A-Grave famous people/T, I found that it was much more satisfying to work on a chunk of 20-or-so and feel that I'd finished than to work on a list of 100 and see it shrink by just a little bit each day - that's my reasoning for making them; there's no particular principle behind it!

As the sections get smaller after the prune, we can delete the breaks to make them "conveniently sized" again. Nobody's using these pages for anything but tidying up anyway, so we're reasonably free to do what's best. Feel free to modify!

Have fun! --Alvestrand (talk) 06:10, 9 December 2007 (UTC)

OK... so I've began to assess the robotics articles. Please review the article assessment guidelines and help this WikiProject out by helping out with the following:

  • Adding Robotics-related articles to the WikiProject
  • Assessing robotics articles listed in Category:Robotics articles by quality
  • Helping out with giving comments to individual articles after assessment, pointers, comments, etc. (basically, don't just give an article class and move on, let people know what led you to give such a rating when necessary.

We need to get this article assessment drive going first before peer reviews and collaborations programs can be made.

Geographic Location (8-way)[edit]

Viewing the template in Chester, PA, it doesn't act as a component - clicking on any arrow only goes to the image-page. That's probably not what was intended. Tedickey (talk) 15:24, 25 April 2008 (UTC)

I don't know, I didn't make it!--Hailey 17:15, 25 April 2008 (UTC)

Hailey: FYI, I've removed the "image" field from the template; this means that the flags will not display. While they certainly do look nice, there are issues with respect to copyright and decorative use of flag images. (This is better explained in the style guideline WP:FLAG.) Please feel free to ask if you have any questions about this. As for the note regarding clicking on arrows, I'll take a look at the template code and see if it is worth enabling that functionality. (There are some new coding options that weren't available when I was last working on that template.) --Ckatzchatspy 18:28, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

Hey there Hailey! I remember you from the Simple English Wikipedia! I kind of miss you editing there; here's to hoping that you will come back to the Simple English Wikipedia to edit more. Cheers, Razorflame 02:21, 4 May 2008 (UTC)

Howdy! Mind if I give a few tips?[edit]

I don't want to sound smug or stuck-up or anything, but from the situation over at Pooh's Grand Adventure: The Search for Christopher Robin, it looks like you could use some pointers in handling vandalism. Rather than yelling at vandals on their talk pages (as tempting as that can be), it's often best to just respond with one of the templates given at wp:warning. Just hit them with the first vandalism template if it's minor, or the second if it's more blatant. From there, you can move up to the third if they do it again, and the fourth if they do it yet AGAIN. After that, you've warned them sufficiently that you can go report them at wp:aiv for their actions, generally. I went ahead and hit this guy with the "first and only warning" template, since he's had WAY more than enough fun with this whole situation, but that's not generally recommended as a first resort. If this is unclear to you at all, or you have any questions, feel free to drop a note at my talk page. - Vianello (talk) 03:59, 13 May 2008 (UTC)

A tag has been placed on Image:Cpks.jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section I9 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the image appears to be a blatant copyright infringement.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on [[ Talk:Image:Cpks.jpg|the 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 would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Johnny Horizon[edit]

I was wondering why you removed those two categories from the Johnny Horizon article. That character was first used as a mascot in 1968 and its use was terminated in 1982. There doesn't seem to be a better pair of categories for a mascot, and in that absence a mascot fits within the "other things" mentioned in the category descriptions.

Speedy deletion of CMG Worldwide[edit]

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.

You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here.

Hi - a stub template or category which you created has been nominated for deletion or renaming at Wikipedia:Stub types for deletion. The stub type, which was not proposed at Wikipedia:WikiProject Stub sorting/Proposals, does not meet the standard requirements for a stub type, either through being incorrectly named, ambiguously scoped, or through failure to meet standards relating to the current stub hierarchy or likely size, as explained at Wikipedia:Stub. Please feel free to make any comments at WP:SFD regarding this stub type, and in future, please consider proposing new stub types first! Grutness...wha? 02:13, 20 August 2008 (UTC)

Oxford Wikimania 2010 and Wikimedia UK v2.0 Notice[edit]

Hi,

As a regularly contributing UK Wikipedian, we were wondering if you wanted to contribute to the Oxford bid to host the 2010 Wikimania conference. Please see here for details of how to get involved, we need all the help we can get if we are to put in a compelling bid.

We are also in the process of forming a new UK Wikimedia chapter to replace the soon to be folded old one. If you are interested in helping shape our plans, showing your support or becoming a future member or board member, please head over to the Wikimedia UK v2.0 page and let us know. We plan on holding an election in the next month to find the initial board, who will oversee the process of founding the company and accepting membership applications. They will then call an AGM to formally elect a new board who after obtaining charitable status will start the fund raising, promotion and active support for the UK Wikimedian community for which the chapter is being founded.

You may also wish to attend the next London meet-up at which both of these issues will be discussed. If you can't attend this meetup, you may want to watch Wikipedia:Meetup, for updates on future meets.

We look forward to hearing from you soon, and we send our apologies for this automated intrusion onto your talk page!

Hi, Hailey!

I see that you recently created "Category:Gay actors from Canada". There's been a bit of discussion lately about the LGBT people cats and how those are broken down. I wonder if you feel like taking a look at that discussion? Specifically, the cat you created is both broken from it's parent by sexuality (from Category:Gay actors) and by location (from Category:LGBT people from Canada). From the discussion we've been having, that might be too specific a category. Your thoughts on the matter would be appreciated! -- SatyrTN (talk / contribs) 01:42, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

I'm currently working through M[edit]

just a note (since I got an edit conflict)..... I'm currently working through the Ms of the Find-A-Grave list, searching to see if we have those people listed under another name. This involves keeping the buffers open for a while, so it's easy to get an edit conflict if something else happens - and while I'm working, bluelinks will appear.

Adding missing biographies[edit]

Thanks for working with me on adding missing biographies from that list! I believe we can finish all of them in a couple of months. As you may know, there are a lot of deletionists on Wikipedia these days who delete stubs, so I wonder if you could add a reference to each one you create? That will make it much less likely the articles will be deleted. In addition, I have found a number of those short blurbs on that list contain errors, and adding a reference can help avoid introducing those errors into article space. Google News and Google Books have entries on all of these people. As an example, I did the Hardy Cross Dillard stub you created. It takes an extra minute or two, but it will help you avoid getting into a deletion discussion with a deletionist trying to erase your work. Thanks again for the work you're doing!

Copyright problem: Eugenio Montero Ríos[edit]

Hello. We welcome and appreciate your contributions, such as Eugenio Montero Ríos, but we regretfully cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from either web sites or printed material.

If you believe that the article is not a copyright violation, or if you have permission from the copyright holder to release the content freely under the GNU Free Documentation License (GFDL), versions 1.3 or later then you should do one of the following:

  • If you have permission from the author leave a message explaining the details at Talk:Eugenio Montero Ríos and send an email with confirmation of permission to "permissions-en (at) wikimedia (dot) org". See Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission for instructions.
  • If a note on the original website states that re-use is permitted under the GFDL or that the material is released into the public domain leave a note at Talk:Eugenio Montero Ríos with a link to where we can find that note.
  • If you own the copyright to the material: send an e-mail from an address associated with the original publication to permissions-en(at)wikimedia(dot)org or a postal message to the Wikimedia Foundation permitting re-use under the GFDL, and note that you have done so on Talk:Eugenio Montero Ríos.

It may also be necessary for the text be modified to have an encyclopedic tone and to follow Wikipedia article layout. For more information on Wikipedia's policies, see Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

If you would like to begin working on a new version of the article you may do so at this temporary page.

Category:Resturants established in 1921[edit]

I notice that this category you created is unpopulated (empty). In other words, no Wikipedia pages belong to it. If it remains unpopulated for four days, it may be deleted, without discussion, in accordance with Wikipedia:Criteria for speedy deletion#C1. I'm notifying you in case you wish to (re-)populate it by adding [[Category:Resturants established in 1921]] to articles/categories that belong in it.

I blanked the category page. This will not, in itself, cause the category to be deleted. It serves to document (in the page history) that the category was empty at the time of blanking and also to alert other watchers that the category is in jeopardy. You are welcome to revert the blanking if you wish. However, doing so will not prevent deletion if the category remains empty.

If you created the category in error, or it is no longer needed, you can speed up the deletion process by tagging it with {{db-author}}.

The category guideline is that categories should be "based on essential, 'defining' features of article subjects." They should thus not be placed based on minor factoids. For articles like BC Rail or Goods and Services Tax (Canada)‎ their inclusion on a Canadian edition of Monopoly is of quite minor overall importance. - SimonP (talk) 18:45, 17 July 2009 (UTC)

Image of Chaenomeles cathayensis[edit]

Hi, Thanks for adding images to Crataegus pages. The one that you added to Chaenomeles cathayensis, however, might be better omitted. Most of the image is taken up with what seems to be a conifer, and the Chaenomeles as far as I can tell is only a pink blur in the lower right. Nadiatalent (talk) 00:22, 10 October 2009 (UTC)

The biographies of living persons policy requires that all personal or potentially controversial information be sourced. In addition, to ensure verifiability, all biographies should be based on reliable sources. If you were to bring these articles up to standards, it would greatly help us with the current 1,786 article backlog. Once the articles are adequately referenced, please remove the {{unreferencedBLP}} tag. Here is the list:

FYI Please add where you got the information for all articles and data you put in Wikipedia. It is always important to cite where the information comes from. References can be very simple.
Example1: [1]
Example2: [2]
Then add a section called references. Note: normally only 2 equal signs (==) on either side of the section name. I used three so you could see how it works here. Click on edit (for this section or article) to see how I did it. Jrcrin001 (talk) 00:46, 4 February 2010 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for File:1845 Polk Inauguration.jpg[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:1845 Polk Inauguration.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the file description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Killiondude (talk) 07:44, 27 January 2010 (UTC)

Carpenter, Zimmerman & Timmerman[edit]

Hello,

I do not wish to discourage you, but surname pages normally do not have pictures as part of their info boxes. Occasionally they will have small pictures, forename related to the particular surname, within the article.

Wikipedia can be confusing for what is allowed and not allowed. And for what is normally accepted and frowned upon, but not well documented! There are numerous "special pages" that give guidelines to how to create, modify and adjust pages in Wikipedia.

I am not an administrator, but a user who has struggled learning the system and still finds things new all the time. Please keep up the "nonsense" and graffiti patrol. It really helps!

Take care,

AfD nomination of Black sitcom[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

An editor has nominated one or more articles which you have created or worked on, for deletion. The nominated article is Black sitcom. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also Wikipedia:Notability and "What Wikipedia is not").

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

You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate.

Please note: This is an automatic notification by a bot. I have nothing to do with this article or the deletion nomination, and can't do anything about it. --Erwin85Bot (talk) 01:14, 18 February 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Monica Lamb-Powell[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Monica Lamb-Powell 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 a person or group of people, 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 see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for biographies. You may also wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles - see the Article Wizard.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (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 talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page 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 page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 04:28, 17 June 2010 (UTC)

File permission problem with File:Discoverystatue.PNG[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Discoverystatue.PNG. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file agreed to license it under the given license.

If you created this media entirely yourself but have previously published it elsewhere (especially online), please either

  • make a note permitting reuse under the CC-BY-SA or another acceptable free license (see this list) at the site of the original publication; or
  • Send an email from an address associated with the original publication to permissions-en@wikimedia.org, stating your ownership of the material and your intention to publish it under a free license. You can find a sample permission letter here.

If you did not create it entirely yourself, please ask the person who created the file to take one of the two steps listed above, or if the owner of the file has already given their permission to you via email, please forward that email to permissions-en@wikimedia.org.

If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have provided evidence that their copyright owners have agreed to license their works under the tags you supplied, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Files lacking evidence of permission may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. IngerAlHaosului (talk) 04:17, 30 June 2010 (UTC)

Redirects are different from dab pages[edit]

Hi. In this edit, your edit comment says you are repairing a link to a disambiguation page, but in fact the link was to a redirect. In general, you should not replace links to redirects with direct links unless the direct link is better in the context of the article. In this case the article referred to Stokes vectors, so the correct link was Stokes vectors, even though this redirects to Stokes parameters. The redirect gets the reader where he or she needs to go, and preserves the option of having a separate article on Stokes vectors later (or a redirect to a specific section of the Stokes parameters article). Redirects are cheap, and make the encyclopedia better. Short circuiting them is not helpful, and is not recommended by WP guidelines.--Srleffler (talk) 02:47, 9 July 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for uploading File:Wonkalogo.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).

From the Editor[edit]

Vienna Karlskirche frescos4b.jpg

This month marks the observation of Pentecost, one of the most important feast of the Christian liturgical year. It is our hope here that all of you, regardless of your religious affiliation (if any), find that the holiday, and its accompanying activities, an enjoyable and beneficial experience. We also hope that this "Birthday of the Church" is one which gives you the same joy as the birthday of yourself or your loved ones.

Ichthus is the successor to the long running WikiProject Christianity newsletter, run under the WikiProject Christianity’s Outreach department. As such, you will continue to see information about our latest featured and good articles, DYKs, as well as new members who have joined our project. You might also see links to Christianity related news from the mainstream media!

With that, I wish you all happy reading!

Help Bring Wikipe-tan "into the fold"[edit]

Wikipe-tan full length.svg

As many of you may know, our unofficial mascot, dear Wikipe-tan, hasn't yet indicated any particular beliefs. However, yes, as we all know, ahem, some people might object to our beloved mascot running around in a French maid outfit. People do talk, you know. ;) If anyone might be able to develop an image of the dear lady in a image more, well, "Christian," I would like to see perhaps a vote for next month as to which, if any, image of the dear girl we might make our own unofficial mascot. Please post your images here.

Christianity in other wikis[edit]

Wikimedia Foundation RGB logo with text.svg
As many of you might now, there are a large number of other Wikimedia Foundation projects, including WikiSource, Wiktionary, Wikibooks, WikiQuote, and others. I certainly believe that Wikibooks and Wikiquote might be among the more directly relevant sister projects. If any of you can think of any particular efforts in these other projects which you think would benefit from more input, please let us know here, so we can help spread the word around.

Spotlight on the Outreach department[edit]

Handshake (Workshop Cologne '06).jpeg

Ichthus will spotlight a different subproject or workgroup of WikiProject Christianity. This edition will spotlight on our vital Outreach department. This comparatively small, but vital, project unit is dedicated to welcoming new editors to Wikipedia and the Christianity related content, and to providing information to the various project members, in forms like this newsletter.

The scope of articles with which this group deals is truly enormous, and, given the wide variety of material with which we deal, we would very much welcome the input of more individuals, particularly individuals who are particularly knowledgeable of the less well-known and less frequently monitored articles related to Christianity.

Speaking personally, I would be very, very gratified if we were to have this become a very, very large and active unit, with members from the broad spectrum of Christian beliefs, practices, and groups. The broader the spectrum and areas of expertise of members we have, the better we will be able to help manage the content. Please consider whether you believe you might be able to contribute in this vital area.

I believe[edit]

... in the statements contained in the Nicene Creed. I believe that the Bible is one of the two defining bases for belief. The other is the Sacred tradition, which provides us with means of interpreting the Scriptures, as well as some teachings which have been handed on by God outside of the scriptures. I believe that the Magisterium has been empowered to fill this interpretative function. I believe that clerical celibacy is a rule that should generally be followed. I am a member of the Catholic Church.

Contest of the month
We currently have a remarkable lack of Wikipedia:Wikipedia-Books. Right now, Category:Wikipedia books on Christianity contains only 12 books. We certainly could have at least one book on each major grouping within Christianity. One of the challenges for this month, then, is working to put together books on relevant topics. For this month, one contest is for editors to assemble the basic Wikipedia books for each of the main topics of the extant related projects. When finished, they should their creation of the books at the main Christianity noticeboard, and at the end of the month the project will award barnstars to those who have made a significant efforts in developing this underdeveloped content.

Also this month, we are going to have have a challenge to create and improve some of our more important missing or low-quality articles. As biographies are often a bit easier, this month we are choosing two biographies: Karl Behm, which has yet to be started, and the currently Stub-class article Nerses IV the Gracious. A barnstar will be awarded to any editor who can get these articles up to DYK quality level and ultimately selected for the DYK section of the main page.


Calendar
Thie coming month (mid-August through mid-September) includes feasts dedicated to the honor of Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Bartholomew the Apostle, Nativity of Mary, and the Exaltation of the Cross.

Wikinews is our sister site for developing news stories. Several events relating to Christianity, like the installation of bishops for instance, do not necessarily merit extensive coverage in wikipedia encyclopedic articles, but can and easily could be covered at greater length in a news article format. Given the number of significant news events that relate to religion, including claims of miracles, assignment of bishops and other religious leaders, church conferences, and other events, this site provides an excellent opportunity to provide in-depth coverage of current events at greater length than wikipedia.

One of our newer editors, User:David_FLXD, has recently gone through much of our content related to Methodism and assessed it. We are very grateful for his efforts, and that of all the editors who have had a role in developing that content. We have every reason to believe that this will make it significantly easier for the Methodism work group to create and develop content relevant to Methodism. To help that along, we certainly encourage everyone to do what they can to help David and the other Methodism editors to bring the content relevant to their tradition to the highest possible level of quality.

As some of you may have seen, the Simple English Wikipedia has been experiencing some difficulties lately. This particular entity could be of great value to several individuals who are trying to learn English. As some of you who do speak foreign languages know, one of the most easily available, and, in general, useful learning aids for people is a text they know already, which allows them to focus on the specific words of the new language. Various recorded readings and translations of the Bible are among the best examples of this. Any efforts to try to enhance this vital means of informing a large segment of our readership is more than welcome. People interested in helping develop it are encouraged to leave a note regarding their specific articles of interest at the Christianity noticeboard. It would be wonderful if we could report some significant contributions to this sister site next month. And, of course, if we do have something to report, those involved would receive our greatest thanks.

We definitely encourage everyone to do what they can to help this project develop the content relating to this extremely important Christian tradition.


I believe
... that human nature is insufficient for salvation, and the grace of God is required to do so. I believe that God has preordained who will and will not achieve salvation. I believe that Jesus's atonement was sufficient for the purposes for which it was done. I believe that God's grace is of such power that it can overcome any person's resistance. I believe that those whom God has chosen for salvation will, by the undeniable power of God, persevere in God's grace. I am a Calvinist.

WikiProject Holidays/Christmas task force is the group whose purpose is to help develop the content related to the Christmas season, including Advent, New Year's, and related holidays. As many of us know, in several parts of the world, including the United States, the Christmas season is not only the time of one of the greatest holidays of the Christian liturgical year, but it is also the "make or break" time for many retailers, whose profitability for the year often depends on their success in this time of the giving of sometimes significantly expensive gifts. In other parts of the world, the winter solstice period and sometimes specifically Christmas itself means something that might surprise many Christians, like the Christmas in Japan, where Christmas is one of the times hotels receive the greatest number of, often unmarried, couples staying there for the night. The solstice season is also significant to several other religions. Many of these days are also legal holidays in several places. In Belarus, for instance, both the Western and Eastern Christmas commemorations are legal holidays. We would certainly welcome the members of this project to donate some of their time and talents in the upcoming months to improving this significant content.

The core topics work group is the group whose specific purpose is to help identify and develop those articles which are of greatest importance to an overall understanding of the broad subject of Christianity, based on what is included in the core topics list. These articles include some of specific churches and individuals, history, philosophical and theological matters, and more. We have had some recent discussion regarding which articles should be included in this list, and it probably makes sense to revisit the selections, and try to figure out how best to work to make them high quality articles. Discussion is beginning at WT:X regarding these matters, and all input is welcome.

was recently promoted to Featured Image. Thank you and congratulations for the great image!


Contest of the month
As I imagine many of our editors will be editing at a greatly reduced level for the next few weeks, what with the Christmas and New Year's holidays coming, there is no specific content-related contest this month. The contest, if anything, is to make the most of the season, in whatever way, if any, you deem appropriate.


Calendar
This coming month (mid-December through mid-January) includes the Advent season, and one of the two greatest holidays of the Christian year, Christmas. Other major feasts in the next month include those of the Feast of the Epiphany, Baptism of the Lord, Saint Stephen, Thomas the Apostle, Holy Innocents, John the Evangelist, Gregory of Nazianzus, Basil the Great, Saint Genevieve, Elizabeth Ann Seton, and Saint Sava.


Featured content and GA report
Since the last report, Anne Hutchinson nominated by User:Sarnold17 was promoted to FA. Grade I listed churches in Lancashire by User:Peter I. Vardy was promoted to Featured List. The image in the Church of the Month and Christian art sections of this newsletter were promoted to Featured Picture status. Come to the Well by User:Toa Nidhiki05 and others, and Dwight Christmas by User:Gen. Quon and others were promoted to GA level. DYKs featured this past month include King's Chapel, Gibraltar, by User:Prioryman, Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception (Albany, New York) by User:Daniel Case, Tingsted Church by User:Ipigott and User:Rosiestep, St. Mary's Church (Albany, New York) by User:Daniel Case, Stubbekøbing Church by User:Ipigott and User:Rosiestep, Notre Dame Cathedral (Phnom Penh) by User:Bloom6132, and St. James' Church, Cardington by User:Peter I.

Firstchristmascard.jpg

In the spirit of Christmas, the spotlight for the coming month might actually best be on those people closest to you. We know that a lot of our editors here are associated in some way or another with schools, and many if not most of them are going on rather extended breaks for the holidays. This can give some of us a chance to meet up with old friends, spend time with our families and those close to us, and, in a sense, "recharge" for the new year. So, for all of you who are in some way part of that group, we wish you the very best of holidays. We hope you all return to editing after the holidays with your spirits lifted and with your energies at peak level. There are some small matters in development here as well, and it is our hope that some of them will be ready come the next newsletter. But, until then, we wish you all the happiest and holiest (if appropriate) holidays.

Contest of the month
No particular contest this month. I am however getting rather close to getting together a more or less complete set of articles relating to different areas of Christianity which can be found in recent reference sources on the broad topic of Christianity, and about various subtopics, which I hope to have finished in the next few weeks. I wonder what the rest of you might think of, maybe, making the contests of future months be basically directed at filling in the gaps of our existing coverage of topics, like those topics given significant coverage in specialized reference works which we don't yet have content on, and giving the thanks, and rewards, whatever they might be, to those who create and develop such content. I am starting a discussion at Wikipedia talk:Christianity noticeboard#Future contests, and would very much welcome any input from interested parties in how to set it up, determine winners including how many winners, etc.

The Spotlight this month turns to the the Syriac Christianity work group. The scope of this project includes the various traditions of Syriac Christianity, including the Assyrian Church of the East, Ancient Church of the East, Church of the East, Syriac Orthodox Church, Chaldean Catholic Church, Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church, Melkite Greek Catholic Church, Syriac Catholic Church, Syro-Malankara Catholic Church, and Saint Thomas Christians. One of these groups, the Assyrian Church of the East, is considered by scholars to have probably been, for several hundred years, the largest Christian grouping in the planet, with its numerous members in Central Asia and Eastern Asia. Numerous texts, traditions, and practices unique to these groups exist, including the Jesus Sutras and the belief of the Assyrian Church of the East that the bread they use in the preparation of their Eucharist uses the same basic yeast as that used in the bread of the Last Supper itself. Sadly, given the linguistic barriers to much of the content relative to these groups, and the comparative lack of notoriety they have in the Western world, much of this content does receive less attenion, and thus less development, than much other content. There is a large amount of extremely valuable historical material here still waiting to be adequately developed by editors with an interest in the topic, and I personally very much hope that we can draw more attention to these topics, and the content related to them.

By John Carter


Calendar
This coming month (mid-January through mid-February) includes The Presentation of Christ in the Temple or Candlemas and the Conversion of Paul. Other major feasts in the next month include those of Saint Agnes, Saint Francis de Sales, Saints Timothy and Titus, Thomas Aquinas, John Bosco, Saint Agatha, Paul Miki, [{Saint Scholastica]], and Saint Anskar.

Non-free rationale for File:Revoltofthebeaver.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Revoltofthebeaver.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under non-free content criteria, but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia is acceptable. Please go to the file description page, and edit it to include a non-free rationale.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified the non-free rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page.

Proposed deletion of Jarrett's Joy Cart[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Jarrett's Joy Cart has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Fails General Notability Guidelines and WP:ORG for charities and non-profits. Notability is not asserted by available Ghits for independent reliable sources in number, depth, and focus that can be verified.

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.

From the Editor

We apologise for the hiatus in the publication of this newsletter due to unforseen circumstances leading to the wikibreak of John Carter, and so I have taken over as acting editor, and have taken this opportunity to move the publication date to the start of each month as planned, to better reflect on the previous month and look ahead to the next. This issue covers the period of time from mid-January to the end of March.

Since the last issue we have seen the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI and the election of Pope Francis. This has received much coverage both in the world media and on Wikipedia. While there is still much work to do, several quality articles have been written and the editors involved are thanked for their efforts.


This month we look ahead to Easter and the celebration of God's love for mankind through the crucifixion and resurrection of his Son Jesus Christ. With that, I wish you all happy reading!

The Spotlight this month turns to the the Jesus work group. The scope of this project includes the life and teachings of the central figure of Christianity, Jesus Christ and aims to write about them in a non-denominational encylopædic style. Top-priority articles include Jesus, Christ, Resurrection of Jesus, and Holy Grail, whereas High-priority articles include Aramaic Language, a former FA, as well as Sermon on the Mount, Lamb of God, and Passion (Christianity). The workgroup has also published two books, covering Christ's final days and the Parables of Jesus. The workgroup has two GAs, Nativity scene, and Jesus in Islam, but unfortunately the flagship article, Jesus was delisted in 2009. It is also responsible for three WP:1.0 articles, and the WikiWork of the project is 4.56, which indicates the "average" article is between Start and C class.

Calendar
This coming month (end-March through end-April) includes Easter Sunday in Western Christianity and both Lazarus Saturday and Palm Sunday for the Eastern Orthodox Church. Other major feasts in the next month include those of Saint George, Saint Mark the Evangelist, Saint Stanislaus, James, son of Zebedee, and Benedict the Moor.

StJohnsAshfield StainedGlass GoodShepherd-frame crop.jpg

This month we hear the news that the Bible is to be made into a film after outstanding success of a biblical miniseries on the History Channel, and we have seen the release of Iraqi Pastor Ali Hamzah from his confinement in Iraq.

After last month's spotlight on the Jesus work group, the flagship article, Jesus, was nominated for Good Article status after much work from FutureTrillionaire and History2007, and provisionally passed by the reviewer, although they have requested a second opinion. Our many thanks for the hard work that has gone into restoring this article to a quality piece of work.

This month the second largest denomination of Christianity, the Eastern Orthodox Church, celebrates Easter and the death and resurrection of the Son of God Jesus Christ.

Church of the month

Wells Cathedral from the north crop.JPG

Wells Cathedral was this month promoted to GA status. Rodw has appealed for any help project members can give to improve this article for a FA nomination.


Contest of the month
No particular contest this month. I am however getting rather close to getting together a more or less complete set of articles relating to different areas of Christianity which can be found in recent reference sources on the broad topic of Christianity, and about various subtopics, which I hope to have finished in the next few weeks. I wonder what the rest of you might think of, maybe, making the contests of future months be basically directed at filling in the gaps of our existing coverage of topics, like those topics given significant coverage in specialized reference works which we don't yet have content on, and giving the thanks, and rewards, whatever they might be, to those who create and develop such content. By John Carter


Featured content and GA report

Featured report; Madonna in the Church, by Ceoil, Truthkeeper88, and Johnbod was promoted to Featured Article status. Crucifixion and Last Judgement was promoted to featured picture status, after nomination by Crisco 1492.

SPOTLIGHT

This month, we turn our attention to the Encyclopedic articles sub-group, which aims to provide "a collection point for lists of articles contained in other reference sources relating to Christianity, which could serve as a basis for developing our own content". Created by John Carter, it is primarily a list of links, red or otherwise, for subjects which have an article in the reference works listed therein. This serves as a very useful list if any project members are "stuck for what to do" and there remains lots of potential for articles developed from this list.

By Gilderien


Calendar
This coming month (end-April through end-May) includes Easter Sunday for the Eastern Orthodox Church. Other major feasts in the next month include those of Matthias the Apostle, The Venerable Bede, and Empress Helena.

WikiProject Christianity Newsletter (June 2013)[edit]

ICHTHUS

June 2013

From the Editor

ბუმბული.png
Since its formation in 2006, WikiProject Christianity has come a long way. A significant number of new articles have appeared on a wide range of topics, and the quality of some key articles has seen dramatic improvement. Yet, by the very nature of the open, crowd-sourced development environment in which we operate, as the number of pages in the project has increased at times our attention has been naturally diluted. We should of course strive for quality everywhere, but we should remember that this newsletter is called Ichthus.

Starting this month we will start a "Focus on" series, where we will try to "bring Jesus back" and focus on him. For five consecutive issues we will focus on one aspect of the study of Jesus. The goal of this series is to inform our members of what the project contains and highlight those articles which have reached quality and stability.

From this month until November we will focus on the historical Jesus, a topic which has been the subject of much discussion on article talk pages, as well as the general media. This is an important topic, and we have a good set of well referenced articles on that now. Then, starting in December we will focus on Christ, and the spiritual and theological elements that the title entails. Following that the review of the life and ministry of Jesus in the New Testament, his miracles, and parables will take place. And each month the "Bookshelf" will mention a book that fits the theme of the month.

We hope you will enjoy this journey as we present a new aspect of Jesus each month. And given that as the number of project pages increases, the ratio of those watching the pages declines, we hope that more of you will watch some of these central pages that help define this project.

Church of the month

Church of All Saints, Winthorpe - geograph.org.uk - 1117642.jpg

The current building of All Saints' Church, Winthorpe in Nottinghamshire, England which was completed in 1888, is at least the third version of the church, which dates back to at least the early 13th century.

Good articles and DYKs
The article Jesus received the good article mark last month, as did Cleeve Abbey. A number of churches were featured on the main page in the DYK section in May, namely St. Lamberti, Hildesheim, Karja church, Braaby Church, St Patrick's Liverpool, Vlah Church, Freerslev Church, Cathedral of Our Lady of the Assumption, Mata-Utu, St. Michael's Cathedral (Sitka, Alaska), St. Lamberti, Hildesheim, Karja church, Braaby Church, St. Pierre Cathedral, Saint-Pierre, Mont Saint Michel Abbey, St Patrick's Church, Liverpool, Vlah Church, St Catherine of Siena Church, Cocking, Catedral Nuestra Señora de La Asunción, Roholte Church, Notre Dame Cathedral, Taiohae, Leicester Abbey, Caracas Cathedral, Caldey Abbey, King's Mead Priory, Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception (Hong Kong) andAll Saints' Church, Winthorpe, as well as the hymn What Wondrous Love Is This.

THE
HISTORICAL JESUS

Did Jesus exist? Did he walk the streets of Jerusalem? The Historicity of Jesus article answers these questions with a firm affirmative. Historicity does not discuss if Jesus walked on water, but if he walked at all. The issue was the subject of scholarly debate before the end of last century, but the academic debate is almost over now. As the article discusses, virtually all academic opposition to the existence of Jesus has evaporated away now and scholars see it as a concluded issue. The discussion is now just among mostly self-published non-academics.

In 2011 John Dickson tweeted that if anyone finds a professor of history who denies that Jesus lived,he would eat a page of his Bible (Matthew 1 he said). Dickson's Bible is still safe.

The article discusses the ancient sources that relate to Jesus and how they fit together to establish that he existed. The evidence for Jesus is not just based on the Christian gospels, but by inter-relating them with non-Christian sources, and the fact that they all "fit together". Moreover, the existence of Jesus is not supported just by Christian scholars and in recent years the detailed knowledge of Jewish scholars and their discoveries (e.g. Shlomo Pines' discovery of the Syriac Josephus) has proven highly beneficial. We encourage you to read and follow the article, for the existence of Jesus is central to the existence of Christianity.

Jesus Outside the New Testament: An Introduction to the Ancient Evidence by Robert Van Voorst, 2000 ISBN 0-8028-4368-9

Just a few years after its publication, Van Voorst's book has become the standard comprehensive text for the discussion of ancient sources that relate to Jesus and his historicity. This detailed yet really readable book has received wide ranging endorsements - Blomberg and Harris separately referring to it as the most comprehensive treatment of the subject.

ICHTHUS

July 2013

From the Editor

ბუმბული.png
Welcome to the July 2013 issue of Ichthus. We focus on the chronology of Jesus, as well as looking back at the project content improved over the last month.

WP:X has gained another Featured Article, Gospel of the Ebionites, by Ignocrates. The Gospel of the Ebionites is the name scholars give to an apocryphal gospel that supposedly belonged to a sect known as the Ebionites. It consists of seven short quotations discovered in a heresiology known as the Panarion, written by Epiphanius of Salamis, and its original title remains unknown. The text is a gospel harmony composed in Greek, and is believed to have been written during the middle of the 2nd century.

St Mihangel's Church, Llanfihangel yn Nhowyn was promoted to Good Article status, as was two other welsh churches, St Enghenedl's Church, Llanynghenedl, and St Peter's Church, Llanbedrgoch.

The main page also featured several DYK hooks for articles in our project, namely Bob Fu, List of places of worship in Tandridge (district), Catholic Press, Garendon Abbey, St. John's Episcopal Church (Jersey City, New Jersey), Pargev Martirosyan, Praskvica Monastery, Heather Preceptory, St. Augustin, Coburg, Longleat Priory, St Mihangel's Church, Llanfihangel yn Nhowyn, St Enghenedl's Church, Llanynghenedl, Christianization of Moravia, Christianization of Bohemia, Repton Abbey, St Peter's Church, Llanbedrgoch, Medingen Abbey, Elmhurst Christian Reformed Church, St. James on-the-Lines, and Leopold Karl von Kollonitsch.

THE
HISTORICAL JESUS

When did Jesus live? When did he die? How do we know? We do, in fact, have excellent information about the time intervals for the life and death of Jesus. As in other people who lived and died in the first century, this gives an approximate date range, but still, give or take 3-4 years and we have pretty good estimates confirmed by a number of really diverse sources, ranging from inscriptions in Delphi to Roman and Jewish sources. The Chronology of Jesus article discusses how a wide variety of Christian, Jewish and Roman sources are used to establish the time-frame for the life and death of Jesus.

And all of his data fits together. For instance, the chronology of Paul had been discussed based on the Book of Acts long ago, then the Delphi Inscription is found in the 20th century in the Temple of Apollo. And guess what.. it confirms it and totally dates his trial in Corinth, which helps reaffirm the date of the crucifixion of Jesus. The same date range is independently estimated from the writings of Josephus on the Baptist's death. And it fits Isaac Newton's astronomical models for the crucifixion date as well as the independent lunar calculations of Humphreys. As that article shows, all these dates just fit together.

THE
HISTORICAL JESUS

What was Jesus like? What did he preach? Did he claim to be the Messiah? Did he predict an apocalypse? What can we know about him outside a religious context? The Historical Jesus article discusses what can be known about Jesus with various degrees of probability. While scholars agree on the over all flow and outline of Jesus' life (his baptism by John, debated Jewish authorities, healings, and his crucifixion by Pilate) they have built various and diverging portraits of the rest of his life. These range from minimalist portraits that accept very little of the gospel accounts to maximalists who accept most of the accounts as historical.

The portraits of Jesus have at times been unwitting reflections of the researchers themselves, and Crossan once quipped that some authors "do autobiography and call it biography". However, the study of historical Jesus has made one thing clear: there is so much to learn about Jesus that the more one looks, the more there is to discover.

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited CableACE Award, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Universal City (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Proposed deletion of T. K. Hardy's[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article T. K. Hardy's has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Non-notable. Unreferenced since 2007. Notability is given for the owner, not the saloon.

While all constructive 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.
