Help needed[edit]

Sorry, folks I screwed up the Millennium Green page. The facts are all correct enough, but it all went into an ugly text box thing. I thought I had the hang of it- obviously not! Ice

I rolled back your edit to Millennium Green. Your edits are appearing in ugly boxes because of the spaces you're adding at the beginning. I'll move this to your talk page now. --Húsönd 20:15, 9 April 2007 (UTC)

Thanks to Husond I know not to indent my writing, which put things into stupid boxes! I have now created my first page- wait for it to be messed up!

Singular or plural and article renaming...[edit]

Greetings, IceDragon64. I replied to your query on my talk page. I don't claim to have all the (or even many) of the answers but if I can be of further assistance please don't hesitate to ask. -- Rydra Wong 02:36, 28 May 2007 (UTC)

Moved "Doorstep greens" to "Doorstep Greens"[edit]

Hi IceDragon64, I moved (renamed) the Doorstep Greens article. This revitalizes a variety of links including the one in the Millennium Green article. -- Rydra Wong 06:30, 28 May 2007 (UTC)


Rheumatic Fever[edit]

Someone has made a mess in rheumatic fever 3. Minor Criteria. I am not quite sure what has gone on here; can someone put it right? I don't want to make it worse! {{helpme}}

It looks like someone hit a few toolbar buttons and saved it. I've cleaned it up. --Sopoforic 22:44, 7 August 2007 (UTC)
And, incidentally: don't worry too much about making mistakes. In the worst case, we'd just have to undo your changes, so be bold in editing! --Sopoforic 22:45, 7 August 2007 (UTC)

Refrerences[edit]

Hi IceDragon:

I want to tell which the article need of a "cleanup", the article need to be like anothers articles, following the "manual of style"; If you have time to read, you will undestand what I'm telling; is olny this, OK? ;) --Brunoy Anastasiya Seryozhenko (talk) 20:42, 8 December 2007 (UTC)

Deleted article[edit]

Dear Stifle,

I don't understand quite why my article on Richard Scarry's book Best Word Book Ever was deleted. I looked up the thing about Blatant Advertising and I don't see quite why this applies to my article. I am nothing to do with Richard Scarry or his publishers and neither are the two sources I quoted as reference. I am fairly new here and I am sorry if it isn't quite right, but I am disappointed that the article was deleted without any attempt to explain or put it right.

It had a No Reference tag put on it by someone, although it did have to references when I posted it. When I queried it with him he said it only needed a clean up, nothing else. OK I can try and 'clean it up'- when I figure out what that means

Richard Scarry has a page on Wiki and this is his most important book- the one which got him started on 300 million sales and is still in print after 45 years. It has quite a lot said about it - including about the PC changes which have been made to it- on the internet, so I thought it should have a page of its own.

Please can you help me to create a more suitable article

IceDragon64 (talk) 00:09, 9 December 2007 (UTC)

I am not the best person for creating articles, but if you do create that article again you should try to write it from a neutral point of view. For one thing, sentences like "Scarry's fun style that has carried on through 300 books has made it popular and remembered through the generations" and headings like "Updating the Best" don't conform to that.

Best Word Book Ever[edit]

Nuvola apps important yellow.svg

Another editor has added the "{{prod}}" template to the article Best Word Book Ever, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but the editor doesn't believe it satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and has explained why in the article (see also Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not and Wikipedia:Notability). Please either work to improve the article if the topic is worthy of inclusion in Wikipedia or discuss the relevant issues at its talk page. If you remove the {{prod}} template, the article will not be deleted, but note that it may still be sent to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached. BJBot (talk) 00:59, 31 December 2007 (UTC)

Best Word Book Ever? References[edit]

Dear Stiffle,

I have followed your kind advice and recreated the page with a more neutral point of view. I understand now that speedy deletion makes authors learn to do things properly. I have put more info in and more references. However, someone put in a Speedy Deletion just because it was deleted before and a note has been left on my page about Citing it and not having good enough references. I have defended it as best I can, but I don't understand what they are saying and its all getting a bit too much for me. I am not very computer literate, I am 43 years old and I don't understand it all. I am trying hard to write a page about a book and I feel like giving up now. I've spent hours going round in circles, such as trying to figure out how to use the Book infobox- nowhere does it tell me how to put info into it. I know you said you weren';t the best person to turn to, but I don't know anyone else and I am affraid that person is just going to delete it all over again.

Thank you for your attention

IceDragon64 (talk) 01:04, 31 December 2007 (UTC)

You need to include citations from reliable sources that prove that your book is notable and to comply with the verifiability policy. Stifle (talk) 20:28, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

Speaking of references, the reason I removed the TV.com reference is because, like Wikipedia, it's content can be changed by users of the site, and that makes it unreliable. Also, if you look it up on Google, you'll find plenty of reliable sources which state that it premiered on Showtime in 1994. It only aired on Nick Jr. in reruns.

Invisible Text?[edit]

I have been asked to provide references for my page Best Word Book Ever or it will be deleted. I have been struggling for hours to get it right tonight. I get it so far, then when I try and Show Preview or Save Page I can only see half the text on the page. Assuming I had done it wrong somehow I undid the work and started again, but its half invisible again. You can see all the References, and Links in the Editing Box, but not on the page to view :(

Hi! I've fixed it. The problem was that you hadn't closed one of the <ref> tags - I've closed it for you now, and half the article has appeared. Have Fun, Stwalkerstertalk ] 22:47, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

Green Flag[edit]

Thanks for the extra bits, the referencing of an email is classed as non-verifiable so can't be used... often wish it could, would save me a lot of trouble as well. I'll do some digging and find where they have hidden the criteria then reference it. The linking of the pennant and the flag is actually a simple process of a re-direct. I will do that next couple of days and let you know, then you can see how it's done for your future reference. Regards Phil aka Geotek (talk) 00:46, 25 February 2008 (UTC)

I have made a redirect page for Green Pennant award, if you enter Green Pennant in the search box, it will take you to Green Flag award. Look at the top and you will see the redirect... click on it to take you to the redirect page and you can then see how the redirect is applied.

Re:Newgrounds[edit]

Thank you for your compliments, you've been an excellent contributor to the article yourself and improved it significantly. Originally I had only planned to remove vandalism--have to get my barnstars somehow--however I will keep it on my watchlist and perform clean ups every now and then. I think in order for us to improve the article we need a complete rewrite such as I did with The Five Heartbeats, we've got to build it from the ground up to match the manual of style and mimick the qualities of succesful internet website related articles. UniversalBread (talk) 15:58, 14 September 2008 (UTC)

This should help us out. There's a lot of repetition on Google books, every book you come across will state Newgrounds hosts amateur flash films. But if you search vigilantely you mighnt come across something useful. UniversalBread (talk) 16:20, 14 September 2008 (UTC)
Our similarities will make the work a lot less difficult. I'm a NG user under the name Reveicha, I contribute through reviews although I have not achieved statistics such as yours. I think our main focus on improving the article should be expansion (there are multiple unfavorably short subtopics throughout the page) and the deletion of irrelevant or insignificant information (such as statistics lists, they only advertise the contributions of active members). Newgrounds can be utilized as a reliable source in some circumstances, similar to how Myspace Tom's page includes information on the site itself I'm sure the administrators have included some relevant information in their blogs. However it's often dificult to distinguish whether or not they are merely joking, the forums should definately be excluded. Honestly although I don't want to discourage IP contributions a majority of editors from Newgrounds seem unaware of what is appropriate for the encyclopedia, I think if we where to use my talk page as a Sandbox we could significantly improve the article without distraction.

Hey icedragon,I have some ideas for a tom fulp article[edit]

I want to create an article on tom fulp but i'm still an amateur editor on wikipedia.I know you want to create an article on tom fulp too,and i think you're more experienced than me on this subject matter,so i'll let you create this article,but i want to help with some sources..I just want your opinion on this interview with tom fulp at comic-con 2008.This video interview is on his game called castle-crashers and it's debut.Come check it out and tell me if it can be a source in his future article on the castle crasher section or something.This is his biggest thing since alien hominid and it deserves a mention in his future article,don't you think?Just give me a call at my talk page... Sammy theeditor (talk) 02:47, 22 September 2008 (UTC)

Glad you liked the tom fulp review![edit]

I'll try and get as many valid sources and references as i can on tom fulp icedragon,and I know you'll make a great article on him.Now I'm off to get some sources.Later,--Sammy theeditor (talk) 00:09, 23 September 2008 (UTC)

Spontaneous generation[edit]

I haven't got the time or knowledge to write about this topic, but we should definitely have an article on it. I have contacted an expert on the subject and he seems willing to write one, so hopefully we'll have something in a few months at most. Richard001 (talk) 10:17, 31 October 2008 (UTC)

Spontaneous Generation[edit]

It shouldn't be in upper case - we name articles in lower case unless there is some reason not to. I don't really know if this will help; he might just write his own lead section and overwrite this. Might be a few months before it happens though. Richard001 (talk) 04:49, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

Improving 'Harpers Ferry Armory'[edit]

I saw in the discussion you contributed to the article 'Harpers Ferry Armory'. I tidied up the article into a nice fashion after coming across it looking like a piece of famished repertoire. This is just FYI. Thank you for your contributions! WinterSpw (talk) 07:02, 14 November 2008 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Heterogenesis[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Heterogenesis, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process because of the following concern:

Dictionary definition.

All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent 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.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because, 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.  Blanchardb -MeMyEarsMyMouth- timed 03:48, 1 March 2009 (UTC)

Mass Driver 1[edit]

OK, I've put up all can on the Mass Driver 1 discussion page, and my talk page. Thanks for the inquiry (I actually got scolded, by another [teen-age I think] admin at the time for that "help me" message, ...  :) Cheers, Bill Wwheaton (talk) 23:36, 19 April 2009 (UTC)

Re: More queries on Puijila darwini[edit]

I can't access the original article, but I'm right now carefully re-reading the secondary sources to try to figure out the answers to your queries.

In general, the entire Puijila article needs to be extensively rewritten! --Levana Taylor (talk) 22:08, 25 April 2009 (UTC)

File source problem with File:Flutterby by Zarrianne-1-.jpg[edit]

File Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading File:Flutterby by Zarrianne-1-.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, their copyright should also be acknowledged.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 21:04, 13 September 2009 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Admrboltz (talk) 21:04, 13 September 2009 (UTC)

Shorts[edit]

Hi there. I can't immediately think of anything further that could be linked to the festival apart from the (already linked) Short film page. Seems like an appropriate place to link. If I think of anything further apart from this, I shall contact you again. Bobo. 20:05, 18 October 2009 (UTC)

File permission problem with File:Flutterby by Zarrianne-1-.jpg[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Flutterby by Zarrianne-1-.jpg. 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 uploaded by following this link. 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. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 14:32, 27 November 2009 (UTC)

Lay vs Lie: Goatse Edtion[edit]

Hi, I noticed that you changed lied to lay on the Goatse Security, but I'm not sure whether that's correct. It's my understanding that "lay" is use when a direct object is present and that "lie" is used in the absence of a direct object. For example, "I laid the book down on the table" (the book being the direct object) vs. "The book lies on the table" (the book doing the action to itself). I'm not good with grammar, so I'm not completely sure. Should the article say "Although the problem lied with the AT&T website rather than the iPad itself" or "Although the problem lay with the AT&T website rather than the iPad itself?" --Michaeldsuarez (talk) 22:49, 13 October 2010 (UTC)

Sorry, I'm stupid. Lay is the past tense of lie. Thanks for the correction. --Michaeldsuarez (talk) 14:40, 18 October 2010 (UTC)

Mohammed Waheed Hassan[edit]

As the editor who placed a tag for POV concerns at Mohammed Waheed Hassan, would you be willing to look at it and double-check my work? I think I've resolved many of the issues there, but it's been a big job and I'm doubtless losing perspective. Thanks! Khazar2 (talk) 03:26, 1 April 2012 (UTC)
