Regarding your edit to Jeff Gerstmann:[edit]

Your recent edit to Jeff Gerstmann (diff) was reverted by automated bot.

This appears to be a bot error and has been reverted. Jake Wasdin 05:16, 15 December 2006 (UTC)

Regarding reverts and subcategories[edit]

Thank you for looking at my edits to Delaware people. However, I think you'll find that it was a legitimate recatecorization. If someone is in a subcategory (e.g. Category:Delaware musicians) they don't have to also be in the main category (e.g. Category:People from Delaware). Please correct me if I'm wrong. (see Talk page). — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)

I did not look into the issue that far. I saw the removal of a category that the article should have likely stayed in, and removed it. However, I do believe it makes sense because it is a subcategory. Sorry about that! Jake Wasdin 21:02, 21 December 2006 (UTC)


Hey, Linuxerist. (You /are/ Linuxerist, right? I still will forever call you Linuxerist.) Haven't seen you around in a while... Øřêōş 21:37, 5 February 2007 (UTC)

Yep, that's me. Hello, nice to see a familar face. :) Jake Wasdin 00:26, 13 February 2007 (UTC)

Pointer to information on SVG rendering in Mediawiki[edit]

You were recommended as someone to ask about SVG rendering in MediaWiki. Feel free to delete this post if you are not. If you are, however, I'd appreciate suggestions on where to look for a reasonable synopsis of configuring and troubleshooting svg rendering in MediaWiki.

I've spent more hours than I can afford scouring the web, and there doesn't seem to be much. I'm certainly willing to create an article on or Wikipedia once I accumulate enough information so that others don't have to go through the same torture.

Briefly, I'm running MW 1.9.0, downloaded public domain help pages and am trying to get the icons to show up properly. I'm using rsvg as the external app, and have set up the proper key (and even the directory) in LocalSettings.pnp . I've also proven that rsvg invoked from the command line will produce the expected png file. But only a "broken link" indicator shows up on the Image page, and a "link doesn't yet exist" indicator shows up on the page where the icon should appear. I'm wondering about directory permissions, arcane setting that might disable swg, etc. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated and might help others in the same boat.

Thanks. Clayton Curtis 23:05, 15 February 2007 (UTC)

Well, I wouldn't consider myself that. I have in the past uploaded some SVG images to the commons, but that is about it. Sadly, my knowledge of SVG renderings ends at the fact that rsvg is used to render. I can show you Category:Pictures showing a librsvg bug. Sorry I can't help you any more. —Jake Wasdin 23:32, 15 February 2007 (UTC)
Thanks for responding, at any rate. <smile> Protocol question, as I'm new here: If a discussion is unproductive, should one just delete it? Clayton Curtis 12:21, 16 February 2007 (UTC)
Some users do, but generally all messages are kept on talk pages unless they are some sort of vandalism. See Wikipedia:Talk page. —Jake Wasdin 12:34, 16 February 2007 (UTC)

(no subject)[edit]

Thanks for the link to the warnings on vandalism. I will indeed visit such users' talk pages and insert the appropriate template. I'm still learning - I guess I'm categorized as a "Wikignome". RichAromas 03:01, 16 February 2007 (UTC)

(I'm putting this on both pages for this one message so you will see. ;) Yes, I was there once as well. I do have another suggestion for you: on talk pages, you can start a new message by using the "+" button up top. (Along with the other tabs) —Jake Wasdin 03:04, 16 February 2007 (UTC)

Test / thanks[edit]

Thanks much! RichAromas 03:06, 16 February 2007 (UTC)

Of course. :) I have one more suggestion for you, just in case you didn't already know. You can keep track of edits on pages by clicking "watch." Then you can go to your watchlist (there is a link in the very top right corner) and keep up with the edits. It is very useful on talk pages like this one so you can keep up with the conversation. —Jake Wasdin 03:08, 16 February 2007 (UTC)

Thank you, I was hoping to find a message here to start my day for my thirteenth birthday. I may not have cake, it may just be apple pie, doubly celebrating Pi day though. :-) —Jake Wasdin 10:13, 13 March 2007 (UTC)

Are you implying I missed your birthday? ;) Happy belated b-day. Øřêōş 18:31, 23 March 2007 (UTC)

Only ten days late... plus it is cool to have a birthday streched out this long. Thanks. :) —Jake Wasdin 00:46, 24 March 2007 (UTC)

You might want to check User_talk:Linuxerist. There's a couple of messages waiting for you. --Ysangkok 20:52, 11 May 2007 (UTC)

Thank you! I hadn't even thought about looking. —Jake Wasdin 01:56, 12 May 2007 (UTC)

Wikimania in Atlanta![edit]

Wikimania 2008 at Tech.jpg

Hi! I noticed your involvement on U.S. South-related articles, categories and WikiProjects, and I wanted to let you know about a bid we're formulating to get next year's Wikimania held in Atlanta! If you would like to help, be sure to sign your name to the "In Atlanta" section of the Southeast team portion of the bid if you're in town, or to the "Outside Atlanta" section if you still want to help but don't live in the city or the suburbs. If you would like to contribute more, please write on my talk page, the talk page of the bid, or join us at the #wikimania-atlanta IRC chat on Have a great day!

P.S. While this is a template for maximum efficiency, I would appreciate a note on my talk page so I know you got the message, and what you think. This is time-sensitive, so your urgent cooperation is appreciated. :) Mike H. I did "That's hot" first! 09:22, 31 August 2007 (UTC)

Thanks a lot! I haven't done much since my last birthday here on WP... maybe I should start back. :) (talk) 20:22, 13 March 2008 (UTC)

Please do not accuse the innocent of sin[edit]

I have never ever, ever, in my continuum of life been even near the page of Terry ..., let alone edited any thing. Heck, I rarely edit, the only few things I have ever edited were exclusively and solely on the Bleach article. I do not even know of what editing you are talking about. I request and I implore therefore, to please resist from any and all false accusations. Please do not vandalize others by accusations of vandalism. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:50, 16 October 2009 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (File:Ruth McDevitt.jpg)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:Ruth McDevitt.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media 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 media 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 '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 all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Hazard-Bot (talk) 04:01, 11 June 2012 (UTC)
