Livengood, AK[edit]

Hey JK. I noticed that you have a picture from Livengood, AK on Wiki. I was wondering if you could get a picture of the CO in Livengood. I would love to see even just the outside of this building.

The Livengood CO runs a Redcom Labs MDX384 switch. This type of switch allows in-band signalling. Livengood happens to be the last CO in North America that still accepts in-band signalling. For this reason, I feel that a picture of the Livengood CO would be appropriate for the Livengood, Blue box, Phreaking and/or 2600 article(s).

This CO will probably be upgraded to a DMS type switch in the near future due to the population burst expected from the recent discovery of gold under the town. It would be really cool if you could get some pictures of the MDX while it is still active but as I said before, even a pic from outside would be welcomed.

I know this is out of your "scope of interest" but I'm sure that many people would appreceiate a picture of the last North American telco "toy".

Thanks very much, Meshif420 (talk) 08:41, 19 April 2010 (UTC)

Good article you created[edit]

Congratulations on having an article you created (1981 Peach Bowl (January))and are the principal author of acheive "good article" status. I was at that game and being able to read about it in detail was a heart-warming experience. I remember that it got very cold after the sun started to set. My wife and I kept trying to stay in the sunshine because I was a little under-dressed. We had migrated to the upper northeast corner of the stadium by the time the game ended — the place where the very last rays of sunshine had been. I don't know whether I was happier Miami won or happier to get in the car and turn on the heater. Cheers!--Hokeman (talk) 22:03, 31 May 2010 (UTC)

Hey[edit]

Any chance we'll be seeing articles from you again? Looks like you've been busy based on minimal edits the past year. Wizardman Operation Big Bear 05:43, 22 January 2011 (UTC)

Good luck with that, glad to see you're back. I actually run the topics process now so you shouldn't have any further problems with it, lol. Wizardman Operation Big Bear 03:28, 2 February 2011 (UTC)

2010 Michigan Wolverines GA Review[edit]

For the record, I am the other main author of the article, so I hope you don't mind my input as well. Thanks for the review, your comments look extremely engaging. SCS100 (talk) 23:52, 1 February 2011 (UTC)

I apologize for jumping in your review, but I do think the article should mention the All-star game appearances by the players. I don't know what you think about this issue.--TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 06:06, 2 February 2011 (UTC)
Basically, I added suggestions because of my knowledge of Michigan football, but I did not review it myself because of how much Michigan content I create, which makes me impartial.--TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 06:12, 2 February 2011 (UTC)
I was also the primary GAC editor of the 2009 article.--TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 06:16, 2 February 2011 (UTC)

FAC for 2010 PapaJohns.com Bowl[edit]

Hello and welcome back! I wanted to tell you that your Virginia Tech bowl game articles and topic were the major reason I started editing Wikipedia in the first place. I have been working for the past year on creating a Connecticut Huskies bowl game topic similar to your Virginia Tech bowl game one; naturally this topic is far smaller in scale. I have a bowl game article, 2010 PapaJohns.com Bowl, currently nominated at FAC. This article has gone through two FACs previously but has failed to be promoted, mainly due to prose issues especially associated with the Team selection section. If you could take a look at the article and provide your feedback, I would greatly appreciate it. The FAC can be found here. Grondemar 21:39, 20 February 2011 (UTC)

Thanks again for your detailed comments. I believe I have addressed all of them; if you could come back and comment I would appreciate it. Grondemar 02:17, 28 February 2011 (UTC)
I've gotten through your second round of comments; if you could re-review, I'd appreciate it. Grondemar 05:17, 3 March 2011 (UTC)

GA Nom of 2011 Orange Bowl on hold[edit]

Hey there. Just thought I'd let you know I have placed my GA review of the 2011 Orange Bowl which you nominated on hold for the time being. Overall it is a very good article however I think it could use one or two minor additions, one being an image from the game and the other being a reference in the lead somewhere. As you can see both are fairly minor (the image may be hard to get though so I understand if this is not possible). MobileSnail 05:20, 6 April 2011 (UTC)

Broad Ripple Park Carousel[edit]

Hello!
Thank you for adding your comments to the Broad Ripple Park Carousel. I was glad to see that you have memories of the carousel! I'm currently The Children's Museum of Indianapolis's Wikipedian-in-Residence (latest news here) and this is one of the projects that I'm most proud of! ... I'm really lucky to have User:Ealdgyth step up to the plate for me on-Wiki as I've coordinated the back and forth between her and the curators. I thought you'd be glad to see that through the GLAM initiative we recently developed a Wikipedia Widget that is now in use on the museum's carousel webpage. We're now working on a QR code to be added to the line/exhibit so that visitors can read the Wikipedia article (hopefully FA status soon!) while waiting to ride. Thanks again for helping out and checking in! HstryQT (talk) 23:21, 8 April 2011 (UTC)

Wow, thank you so much! I'm just absolutely thrilled to have inspired you to contribute to the Children's Museum! It's really great to come upon Wikipedians who have a history with the museum and to see them excited about the Wikipedia collaboration. Thank you so much! We will be writing a case study specifically about the carousel article, the process of collaborating to get it to FA, and the results. Would you be OK with us including this as one of our (more surprising :) results? Thank you again for sharing your memories! I'll be sure to keep you in the loop with other announcements.

Next Children's Museum Backstage Pass[edit]

Hello! While I know you're very far away, I still wanted to keep you in the loop on our latest goings ons at the Children's Museum and pass along the information I've prepared for our 2nd Backstage Pass and Edit-a-Thon, which will occur on Saturday, August 20. The Wikipedian in Residence project is coming up on one year and is going strong. While the first year focused on garnering institutional enthusiasm among staff, organizing multiple content donations, and guiding teens in research and article creation, the next year will focus on establishing an E-Volunteer program and more deliberately connecting with local Wikipedians and WikiProjects around the world. You can read a summary of our projects on the museum's blog, or visit the project page.

Since you most likely will not be able to attend, but are likely interested in remaining involved and up to date on the museum's Wikipedia project, you can sign up on our E-Volunteer page. There will also be an opportunity to participate in the Edit-a-Thon online, if you cannot attend on-site. Also, if you'd like to make a request for images or research content from our curators, you can add to the Requests page. Let me know if you have any questions and I hope to be in touch! Thanks again. LoriLee (talk) 11:49, 15 July 2011 (UTC)

Non-free rationale for File:Keynoter Front Page.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Keynoter Front Page.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.

Children's Museum update[edit]

Kit Cat Klock

It's time again to share the latest news on the Children's Museum of Indianapolis Wikipedia project! In the last few months we have been busy with our third image donation, which was made up of 150 images that were professionally photographed specifically for this upload. We are asking for volunteers to categorize these images and distribute them into Wikipedia articles. Your help is appreciated! Check them out here.

We have also donated our first video and a second GLAM-Wiki Infographic to Commons. In September we were thrilled to welcome Jimmy Wales to the museum. Following our successful Edit-a-Thon and Translate-a-Thon in August, translations have continued with the help of the established QRpedia community, (particularly Russian translations thanks to Lvova!) We have begun to analyze our implementation of QRpedia codes and completed an extensive case study. In November we presented at the Museum Computer Network conference about how museums can effectively collaborate with Wikipedia. You can see more details on the Prezi.

In more general news, in addition to serving as the Children's Museum's Wikipedian-in-Residence, it was recently announced that I will be taking on the role of US Cultural Partnerships Coordinator for the Wikimedia Foundation. In this role I will be working to streamline the process of connecting interested US GLAMs with the Wikipedia community. If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to let me know. Be sure to sign up for This Month in GLAM to keep up with the latest GLAM-Wiki news from around the world (subscribe).

We have a listing of High Need and Moderate Need requests on the Ways to Help section on the project page. I encourage you to lend a hand if you're able. While the Children's Museum partnership continues to truck along, we still are in desperate need of volunteers to help disperse our images and update and maintain content. Thank you for your time and help. Happy holidays! LoriLee (talk) 16:45, 21 December 2011 (UTC)

If this article needs any attention or maintenance, it would be preferable if that could be done before its appearance on the Main Page. The blurb as it stands now is below:

Jacksonville Municipal Stadium, site of the 2006 Gator Bowl

The 2006 Gator Bowl was a college football bowl game between the Louisville Cardinals and the Virginia Tech Hokies in Jacksonville, Florida on January 2, 2006. Virginia Tech was selected as a participant in the 2006 Gator Bowl following a 10–2 regular season; a loss to Florida State in the inaugural ACC Championship Game gave Tech a position in the Gator Bowl instead of the more prestigious Orange Bowl game. Facing the 12th-ranked Hokies were the 15th-ranked Cardinals, who finished 9–2 during the regular season of their first year in the Big East Conference. Louisville led for much of the game, beginning with an 11-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter by backup quarterback Hunter Cantwell. In the second half, however, Virginia Tech's offense began to have success. Tech earned the only points of the third quarter—a 28-yard field goal from kicker Brandon Pace—to narrow Louisville's lead to 17–13. In the fourth quarter, the game fully turned in the Hokies' favor. Though Louisville scored a touchdown early in the quarter, Virginia Tech scored 22 unanswered points in the final 13 minutes of the game to take a 35–24 lead and earn the win. (more...)

Sharon Cissna[edit]

I dunno if you're still checking in here. Since Sharon Cissna filed to run against Don Young, various editors decided to actually do something with her article. I was just curious if you're planning on doing any research about her Kodiak years for your job, or if there is anything known about those years which may be relevant enough to share on here. I do know she was living there as the wife of Edward F. Naughton, Kodiak's then-member of the Alaska House of Representatives. Therefore, I would think there to be something relevant.

The Virginia Tech Hokies football team takes the field before the start of the game.

The 2009 Orange Bowl game was the 75th edition of the annual college football bowl game known as the Orange Bowl. It pitted the 2008 Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) champion Virginia Tech Hokies against the Big East Conference champion Cincinnati Bearcats on January 1, 2009 at Dolphin Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida. Cincinnati scored first, converting the game's opening possession into a touchdown and a 7–0 lead in the first quarter. Virginia Tech responded in the second quarter, tying the game at seven before taking a 10–7 lead with a field goal as time expired in the first half. In the third quarter, the two teams battled defensively, with only the Hokies able to score any points as Tech extended its lead to 13–7. During the final quarter, Virginia Tech scored its second touchdown of the game, giving the Hokies a 20–7 lead that lasted until time expired. In recognition of his performance during the game, Virginia Tech running back Darren Evans was named the game's most valuable player. Three months after the game, players from each team entered the National Football League (NFL) via the 2009 NFL Draft. Cincinnati had six players selected in the draft, while Virginia Tech had one.

Better source request for File:2008 Tanana River flood at Nenana.png[edit]

Thanks for your upload to Wikipedia:

You provided a source, but it is difficult for other users to examine the copyright status of the image because the source is incomplete.

WikiProject Good Articles Recruitment Centre[edit]

Good Article Recruitment - Completion Award.png
Hello! Now, some of you might have already received a similar message a little while ago regarding the Recruitment Centre, so if you have, there is no need to read the rest of this. This message is directed to users who have reviewed between 12-14 Good article nominations and are not part of WikiProject Good articles (the initial messages I sent out went to only WikiProject members and users that had over 15 reviews).

So for those who haven't heard about the Recruitment Centre yet, you may be wondering why there is a Good article icon with a bunch of stars around it (to the right). The answer? WikiProject Good articles will be launching a Recruitment Centre very soon! The centre will allow all users to be taught how to review Good article nominations by experts just like you! However, in order for the Recruitment Centre to open in the first place, we need some volunteers:

  • Recruiters: The main task of a recruiter is to teach users that have never reviewed a Good article nomination how to review one. To become a recruiter, all you have to do is meet this criteria. Now, one of the most important criteria is that you have at least 15 independent reviews. If you are reading this, you are likely 3 (or less) reviews short, so if you review another couple nominations, you can become a recruiter! If interested, make sure you meet the criteria, read the process and add your name to the list of recruiters. (One of the great things about being a recruiter is that there is no set requirement of what must be taught and when. Instead, all the content found in the process section is a guideline of the main points that should be addressed during a recruitment session...you can also take an entire different approach if you wish!) If you think you will not have the time to recruit any users at this time but are still interested in becoming a recruiter, you can still add your name to the list of recruiters but just fill in the "Status" parameter with "Not Available".

NOTE: If you are interested in becoming a recruiter but do not meet the 15 review requirement, you can still add your name to the list of recruiters and put your status as "Not Available" until you have reviewed enough nominations.

  • Nominators, please read this: If you are not interested in becoming a recruiter, you can still help. In some cases a nominator may have an issue with an "inexperienced" editor (the recruitee) reviewing one of their nominations. To minimize the chances of this happening, if you are fine with a recruitee reviewing one of your nominations under the supervision of the recruiter, please add your name to the list at the bottom of this page. By adding your name to this list, chances are that your nomination will be reviewed more quickly as the recruitee will be asked to choose a nomination from the list of nominators that are OK with them reviewing the article.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to seeing this program bring new reviewers to the Good article community and all the positive things it will bring along.

A message will be sent out to all recruiters regarding the date when the Recruitment Centre will open when it is determined. The message will also contain some further details to clarify things that may be a bit confusing.--Dom497 (talk)

WP:FOUR RFC[edit]

There are two WP:RFCs at WP:FOUR. The first is to conflate issues so as to keep people from expressing meaningful opinions. The second, by me, is claimed to be less than neutral by proponents of the first. Please look at the second one, which I think is much better.--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 07:02, 20 August 2013 (UTC)
