SWORD[edit]

Thanks for putting this article together. I've made a few comments on the articles talk page and I welcome your input. Just so you are aware I am moving the article to S.W.O.R.D. (The Saint) in order to be consistent with other articles on The Saint, plus SWORD only appeared in one Saint book and TV episode and wasn't a recurring group. 23skidoo 15:15, 18 August 2006 (UTC)

No, as you can see, it still has a diambiguation element to the title. But WP:STYLE says article titles do not include quotation marks, plus it's inaccurate to use the word "novels" since the group appeared only once. So to say (The Saint) is the best way to go about this, plus it is consistent with other disambiguated article titles such as Getaway (The Saint). I have adjusted all articles accordingly. I think the WP:STYLE jury is presently out as to whether acronym titles should be presented like S.W.O.R.D. or like SWORD. I'm ambivilent either way as long as its consistent. 23skidoo 15:35, 18 August 2006 (UTC)

Teal[edit]

I intend to do an article on him just as I did one for Patricia Holm, however I am still reading the books so I don't have enough information to start one yet. It would be Claud Eustace Teal as WP:STYLE says to leave titles out of article namespace. If you're familiar enough with the character to start up an article, please do so and I'll fill in what I know. The only other Saint character who probably deserves his own article is Hoppy Uniaz, but I've yet to read any of the stories featuring him. 23skidoo 17:09, 18 August 2006 (UTC)

I've now created an article at Claud Eustace Teal. As I noted earlier, we generally don't use titles in the article namespace (and Teal's rank changes over time, anyway). 23skidoo 18:30, 24 August 2006 (UTC)

Moving articles[edit]

Hi, You recently moved Life on Mars to Life on Mars (scientific theory) by copying and pasting the contents of the page. Do not do this. The only allowed way to move an article is via the "Move" button that appears at the top of each article. If a move is not likely to be controversial, go ahead and move using the button. If the move is controversial or the button's function is blocked, the move needs to be discussed first on the talk page or dealt with more formally using the procedure at Wikipedia:Requested moves. Copy/paste moves are not allowed because they mess up the stored history of edits, which is important for protecting Wikipedia from copyright lawsuits.

I am reverting your move, because an objection has been raised. If you still want to do this, raise the issue at Wikipedia:Requested moves. Note though, that the articles you were working on are now disambiguated at Life on Mars (disambiguation), and each of the articles links to that. I suggest that this configuration is better than doing the disambiguation at Life on Mars, because the scientific theory is the primary meaning of the phrase.--Srleffler 04:17, 30 August 2006 (UTC)

Disambiguation pages[edit]

Hi again. See WP:MOSDAB. There are special rules for the formatting of disambiguation pages, which differ from normal article format. In particular, the only links that should appear on these special pages are the words or phrases that are being disambiguated. The information content is also to be kept to a minimum. The purpose of these special pages is not to provide information, but to allow a reader to find the correct article as quickly as possible. --Srleffler 06:18, 30 August 2006 (UTC)

More move issues[edit]

Please don't change the redirects between Life on Mars and Life on Mars (theory), nor the link to the former on the disambiguation page. The proposal to move the former article to the latter has clear consensus and will go through in a couple of days. In the meantime, it's polite to keep things simple for the admin who closes the move, by keeping all the links pointing to the new location of the article, with a redirect from there to the old location. This makes the move simple, and means nobody has to go through and fix all the links after the page is moved. By changing these links and redirects, you are just making more work for everybody and doing no one any good. --Srleffler 04:16, 5 September 2006 (UTC)

Fitzroy Maclean[edit]

Various anonymous editors have been changing the Fitzroy Maclean page (including dates and titles). I've no idea whether the old text or the new text is accurate. Could you please give the history of the article a quick look-over. Thanks Bluap 22:05, 6 November 2006 (UTC)

Pimm's Cup (cocktail)[edit]

I left a note at the talk page for the article. Do you plan on making any substantial additions to the article that would qualify it for inclusion in the encyclopedia? It appears to be a non-notable drink, and the body of the article is just a recipe. Leebo86 02:36, 11 January 2007 (UTC)

4th Estate Cocktail (cocktail)[edit]

The (cocktail) part of title wasn't needed. The title already states it's a cocktail and there's no chance of misunderstanding what is meant. Bracketed modifiers are only used when disambiguation is needed. - Mgm|(talk) 09:00, 11 January 2007 (UTC)

AfD Nomination: Fourth Estate Cocktail[edit]

An editor has nominated the article Fourth Estate Cocktail for deletion, under the Articles for deletion process. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe it satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and has explained why in the nomination (also see What Wikipedia is not and Deletion policy). Your opinions on why the topic of the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome: participate in the discussion by editing Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Fourth Estate Cocktail. Add four tildes like this ˜˜˜˜ to sign your comments. You can also edit the article Fourth Estate Cocktail during the discussion, but do not remove the "Articles for Deletion" template (the box at the top of the article), this will not end the deletion debate. Jayden54Bot 15:00, 15 January 2007 (UTC)

Down Low Cocktail[edit]

Hi there. As part of the WikiProject Mixed Drinks, I have been reviewing cocktail articles across Wikipedia, discovering this article, of which you appear to be the sole author. While the cocktail you have described is interesting and plausible, it currently has no independent verification. I would be extremely grateful if you could provide a link to an external source in a "==External links==" or "==References==" section. This would also aid us in determining the notability, and hence final destination of the cocktail (if it is not a notable cocktail it is likely to be transwikied to Wikibooks). If you are able to add any information relating to the cocktail's history, origins and culture, that would also be extremely helpful. Many thanks in advance, Happy-melon 15:50, 16 March 2007 (UTC)

Please do not remove proposed speedy deletion, let the admin decide[edit]

A tag has been placed on "The Fore and Aft" Regiment, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article appears 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.

If you think that you can assert the notability of the subject, you may contest the deletion. To do this, add {{hangon}} on the top of the page (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag) and leave a note on the article's talk page explaining your position. 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. Tdmg 06:27, 5 July 2007 (UTC)

I understand that people often post articles and then flesh them out later. However, it is best to make your article in a sandbox or subpage, and make sure its grammar/spelling are good, it is wikified, and most importantly has references that assert its notability. You should copy and paste your current article into a sandbox. If it does get deleted then you can repost an updated version that is worthy of a Wikipedia article. I want more articles on Wikipedia, but I don't want to include ones that don't have any references or are ambiguously (at best) notable. Getting the article deleted is not the end of the world, it just means that you'll have to come back with something better next time. Tdmg 17:07, 5 July 2007 (UTC)

Chauvinism sources[edit]

Thanks for your edits to Chauvinism. I was wondering, while it was still fresh in your mind, if you could go back and add where you got your information. Wikipedia operates on verifiability and attribution, and it can only help the article by adding references to the new content. Thanks for your cooperation.-Andrew c [talk] 22:06, 5 September 2007 (UTC)

Notability of FUGAZI (acronym)[edit]

A tag has been placed on FUGAZI (acronym) requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article appears 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.

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 page (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), 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. JohnCD 11:53, 31 October 2007 (UTC)

FUGAZI (acronym)[edit]

If you disagree with deletion, put {{hangon}} on the article page, just under the db tag, and explain on its talk page why you think it should be kept. Then the administrators will read that before they decide. JohnCD 16:13, 31 October 2007 (UTC)

Photo[edit]

The photo at the top of the article was taken about 1966, and on the right is a can that says "Date" something. Badagnani (talk) 03:29, 10 July 2008 (UTC)

Did you find info on the date item? Badagnani (talk) 04:45, 10 July 2008 (UTC)

Excellent, I'll make the change in the photo description page. Badagnani (talk) 05:24, 10 July 2008 (UTC)

You are to be commended for your thoroughness. Badagnani (talk) 05:31, 10 July 2008 (UTC)

Thanks, that's very clear. I think you should add that additional level detail to the article about these items, since such discs are not a common shape of chocolate or fudge. It's a good feeling to properly document these things for the world, perhaps creating the best article anywhere about these things (something Wikipedia is great for). Badagnani (talk) 06:46, 10 July 2008 (UTC)

Paratroopers Brigade[edit]

Hi Hotspur! A while ago you moved Paratroopers Brigade to Paratroopers Brigade (IDF), if I recall correctly, saying that it was not to confuse with another army's Paratroopers Brigade. Is there actually a unit with the exact same name in English in another army? Please clarify this issue, as I would like to move back the article. -- Ynhockey (Talk) 21:28, 9 October 2008 (UTC)

I'm not really sure what you mean by 'romanized text', but I really don't see an issue here. If the airborne brigade of another army is not called Paratroopers Brigade specifically, then there's little chance that someone will stumble upon the article looking for that other brigade. However, in case they will, we can always add a hatnote - provided someone creates articles for other armies' airborne brigades, or a disambiguation page. Right now 'Paratroopers Brigade' redirects to 'Paratroopers Brigade (IDF)' anyway, which kind of defeats the point. -- Ynhockey (Talk) 22:38, 10 October 2008 (UTC)
On a side note, I have also reverted your transliteration change, per WP:HE. -- Ynhockey (Talk) 22:40, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use Image:Bw6grizzly400x261ms2.jpg[edit]

Replaceable fair use

Thanks for uploading Image:Bw6grizzly400x261ms2.jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that the media is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this media is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the media description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per our non-free content policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. dave pape (talk) 04:40, 1 May 2009 (UTC)

Ramblin' Wreck from Georgia Tech[edit]

Hi, I saw that you added some content to Ramblin' Wreck from Georgia Tech. However, you did not include a source where that could be verified. I am maintaining a particularly strict standard of verification on that page, as I hope to one day make it a featured article, so have moved your content to the talk page until we can find a source for that content.

I have nominated Down Low Cocktail, an article that you created, for deletion. I do not think that this article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and have explained why at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Down Low Cocktail.

Graham-Montgomery Baronets: Context[edit]

Speedy deletion nomination of Nightrider (DC Comics)[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Nightrider (DC Comics) requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be a clear copyright infringement. 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.

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

If you think 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 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.

Speedy deletion nomination of Parley (band)[edit]

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

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

A tag has been placed on Parley (band) 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 of the article is important or significant: 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 you think that you can assert the notability of the subject, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hang on}} at the top of the article, immediately below the speedy deletion ({{db-...}}) tag (if no such tag exists, the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate), and providing your reasons for contesting on the article's talk page, 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. You may freely add information to the article that would confirm the subject's notability under Wikipedia guidelines.

You may want to read the guidelines for specific types of articles: biographies, websites, bands, or companies. Travelbird (talk) 04:07, 14 January 2011 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Capt. Vernon L. Burge 01.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Capt. Vernon L. Burge 01.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.

WAVES edits not minor[edit]

Your edits to WAVES should not have been marked "minor" and should have comments and references. You have consistently been marking your edits as minor, when, in fact, you are making significant changes. Mhjohns (talk) 21:10, 21 May 2011 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Hayride (cocktail)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Hayride (cocktail) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Doesn't appear to meet WP:NOTE guidelines; this has only one source, which is a self-published primary source written by the man who supposedly invented this cocktail. Additionally, the drink in question is just a sidecar, with a recipe in this proportion dating back to at least 1930 (as documented in the Sidecar article).

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. The speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.


I marked this article for deletion for the reasons above. Are there any other reliable sources to indicate notability for this cocktail name/recipe? SaMemax737 (talk) 18:22, 5 June 2011 (UTC)

National Codification Bureau[edit]

This is an automated message from VWBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of National Codification Bureau, and it appears to include material copied directly from http://stampedout.net/odds-007-ncb.html.

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. The article will be reviewed to determine if there are any copyright issues.

If substantial content is duplicated and it is not public domain or available under a compatible license, it will be deleted. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material. You may use such publications as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. See our copyright policy for further details. (If you own the copyright to the previously published content and wish to donate it, see Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials for the procedure.) VWBot (talk) 13:36, 23 January 2013 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of National Codification Bureau[edit]

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

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

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

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

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Peters Cartridge Company[edit]

Hi. Please do add material to articles without citing a source, as you did with this edit to Peters Cartridge Company.

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help.

Barrett M468[edit]

Hey! First off, let me say thanks for the work you did on the Barrett M468 article. You added some great info. If I may offer some constructive criticism, check out the Gun Structure section to see the way these articles should be formatted. It helps to have all the firearm related articles structured in the same way. Also, you should try to make use of the citation templates. They format the sources in a much more readable way and can be accesses from the edit toolbar by clicking on "Cite". Thanks again! --Zackmann08 (talk) 23:17, 21 February 2013 (UTC)

Hi, I'm Kudpung. Hotspur23, thanks for creating Sir James Montgomery, 2nd Baronet!

Speedy deletion nomination of Jeff Jensen[edit]

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

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

A tag has been placed on Jeff Jensen 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 read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

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

Hanky-Panky cocktail with cognac[edit]

Hi Hotspur23

Thank you for editing the entry of one of the greatest classic cocktails: The Hanky-Panky! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hanky-Panky_cocktail

I'm very interested in the history of mixology and cocktails and particularly one of your edits has caught my eye, but unfortunately there are no citations or reference to your claim that: "The original cocktail as described by Ada Coleman contained cognac rather than dry gin."

Could you please help support this statement by providing a citation? I know the cocktail community and myself would love to explore further.
