User:OZODOR is currently requesting an unblock - my proposed unblock conditions are on his talkpage. One of them is that he enter into an informal mentorship arrangement with an experienced user; he chose you (and has sent you an email about it). I'm more than happy with that, especially since you know the account's history, but you're under no obligation to accept. Yunshui  23:28, 9 January 2013 (UTC)

Revdel[edit]

Thanks for deleting those revisions. However, the 17:33, 9 January 2013‎ and 17:39, 9 January 2013‎ full page diffs still show those edits so they should be deleted as well.--The Devil's Advocate tlk. cntrb. 18:15, 10 January 2013 (UTC)

User:OZODOR[edit]

He's now unblocked. Welcome - unexpectedly - to the world of user adoption! You've been here for just about forever, and so I'm sure you'll have no problems looking after him. The form that your mentorship takes is entirely up to you - you can just keep an eye on his editing and slap him upside the head if he fouls up, you can set him a series of Challenge Anneka style tasks, or you can put him through an adoption school (feel free to steal part or all of mine, Worm That Turned's, John F. Lewis' or any other adopters'). Thank you for taking the task on; hopefully you'll add a productive editor to the ranks. Yunshui  22:27, 10 January 2013 (UTC)


DuSable[edit]

I was wondering if you were aware of this "recent update" on Dusble? [1] (look at link in box.) We have previously discussed this general source awhile ago. The entry is copyrighted 2006 but the update lists this month? At any rate it seems to assert new information about DuSable being from Southern Illinois (ie. Illinois Country)). I thought you might want to take a look at it given your FA nomination. Alanscottwalker (talk) 22:43, 21 January 2013 (UTC)

Re:Adoption[edit]

Thanks Jeremy! I really don't upload images that often (to Wikipedia of course), but I will notify you soon because I will need some images in the future from Flickr! Thanks again though! ChicagoWiz 23:38, 21 January 2013 (UTC)

RFC-withdrawal closure[edit]

Could you close my RFC at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Disambiguation#2nd order disambiguation by birth date - RFC. I seem to have defined the wrong scope of the issue and posted it at the wrong page, according to the feedback I am getting. I would like to withdraw my RFC nomination.--TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 05:09, 6 March 2013 (UTC)

New message at User:JeremyA/Adopt/OZODOR[edit]

Dear Jeremy, I have added a new section to the adoption page and respond ASAP or whenever you get a chance! ChicagoWiz 18:45, 8 March 2013 (UTC)

Hi Jeremy; I've looked at a bunch of these prospective uploads and all those I've checked are not CC-BY-SA compatible (they're all CC-BY-NC or ND). I'm sure you'd have spotted it too, but thought I'd save you the trouble; obviously, please don't upload them. You may also want to have a word with your adoptee about trying to use you to get around the conditions of his unblock. Yunshui  20:55, 8 March 2013 (UTC)

third opinion[edit]

WOuld you be willing to weigh in at Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Chicago#Two_navboxes_for_museums.--TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 13:24, 6 April 2013 (UTC)

Glad you are back. This discussion is still open. At the bottom there is an itemization of opinions. Yours would be welcome.--TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 00:20, 9 July 2013 (UTC)

User talk:2.25.96.233[edit]

Hello. I am writing because of the message I received about your change to a supposedly mine contribution about Essex. Neither I or any other people sharing this IP ever made any contributions to the Essex page, or to any page at all.

Also, my wifi has a password and it is very unlikely that anyone connected to my wifi without my knowledge.

Therefore I would like to know: 1) are there other contributions coming from this IP address? 2) does often happen that people use fake IPs to make contributions? 3) may it be a Wikipedia mistake in identifying the IP? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2.25.96.233 (talk) 11:06, 24 July 2013 (UTC)

AfD[edit]

Given this edit (through the way-back machine), I thought you might be interested in Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Eric Ian Hornak Spoutz. No doubt the article is now significantly different--actually, I'm guessing, I haven't looked at the version you saw. Drmies (talk) 15:45, 21 January 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up. I guess that I should have kept an eye on this editor for longer than I did.—Jeremy (talk) 16:07, 22 January 2014 (UTC)
Oh, I intended no criticism. I was happy to find your comment. Drmies (talk) 17:32, 22 January 2014 (UTC)

Why was the Ribbon and Logo section deleted?[edit]

The Ribbon and Logo page for (Adiposa dolorosa)have been deleted. The images are free/open to use by www.hanleycreative.com Dercumsdiseaseandresearch (talk) 03:11, 18 February 2014 (UTC)

@Dercumsdiseaseandresearch: I deleted the text of this section because it was not written in a manner appropriate to an encyclopedia (all caps; promotional tone), and it did not cite a reliable third party source. As we don't usually have sections in articles that just include a single image, I removed the image as well.—Jeremy (talk) 03:15, 18 February 2014 (UTC)

@JeremyA: What do I need to do to reinstate the photos? (Also, I don't recall having all caps?) These are my original artwork. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dercumsdiseaseandresearch (talkcontribs) 03:51, 18 February 2014 (UTC)

@Dercumsdiseaseandresearch: Have these images been used in third party reliable sources in relation to Adiposa dolorosa? If not using them in Wikipedia article would constitute original research, which is not allowed on Wikipedia. —Jeremy (talk) 03:57, 18 February 2014 (UTC)

To jeremy[edit]

I recently added an article about my teacher. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE don't delete it like you did on my last one! I really want this to be out there so people can read MY opinion about her. Please respond so that I know you received this and read it. Thanks. --Flowerpower571 (talk) 02:42, 21 February 2014 (UTC)

  • @Flowerpower571: Hi. I'm afraid that Wikipedia is not the place to write an article about your teacher (unless your teacher meets Wikipedia's notability guidelines). Thanks —Jeremy (talk) 02:47, 21 February 2014 (UTC)

Revision deletion[edit]

Please delete this revision because it is purely disruptive material. Puffin Let's talk! 21:02, 23 February 2014 (UTC)

An Article[edit]

Hi Jeremy, I am really have a hard time creating this article for an actor who was written poorly without any reliable notable source. I have the written but there been so many written articles about this actor. Some misleading, not even about the actor himself. I see it's been create numerous times and it has placed an automatic filter block. I would like to complete this article if possible? I can also send you the article via email and you can publish the actor yourself?!! I would love your feedback, thanks! 162.229.92.82 (talk) — Preceding undated comment added 22:57, 24 April 2014 (UTC)

Main Page appearance: history of Sheffield[edit]

This is a note to let the main editors of history of Sheffield know that the article will be appearing as today's featured article on May 24, 2014. If this article needs any attention or maintenance, it would be preferable if that could be done before its appearance on the Main Page. If you prefer that the article appear as TFA on a different date, or not at present, please ask Bencherlite (talk · contribs). You can view the TFA blurb at Wikipedia:Today's featured article/May 24, 2014. If it needs tweaking, or if it needs rewording to match improvements to the article between now and its main page appearance, please edit it, following the instructions at Wikipedia:Today's featured article/requests/instructions. The blurb as it stands now is below:

Sheffield Winter Garden

The history of Sheffield, a city in South Yorkshire, England, can be traced back to the founding of a settlement beside the River Sheaf in the second half of the 1st millennium AD, although the area has seen human occupation since at least the last ice age. Following the Norman conquest of England, Sheffield developed into a small town. By the 14th century it was noted for the production of knives, and by 1600 it had become the main centre of cutlery production in England. In the 1740s the crucible steel process was improved by Sheffield resident Benjamin Huntsman, allowing a much better production quality. At about the same time, the silver plating process which produced Sheffield Plate was discovered, and the associated industries caused Sheffield to grow rapidly. It remained a major industrial city throughout the first half of the 20th century, but the downturn in world trade following the 1973 oil crisis and international rationalisation in steel production led to the closure of many of the steelworks from the early 1970s onward. Since the late 1980s, urban and economic regeneration schemes (including the Sheffield Winter Garden, pictured) have transformed the city. (Full article...)

You (and your talk-page stalkers) may also be interested to hear that there have been some changes at the TFA requests page recently. Nominators no longer need to calculate how many "points" an article has, the instructions have been simplified, and there's a new nomination system using templates based on those used for DYK suggestions. Please consider nominating another article, or commenting on an existing nomination, and leaving some feedback on your experience. Thank you. UcuchaBot (talk) 00:01, 10 May 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for quality articles on places and their history, such as History of Sheffield and Kinzie Street railroad bridge, for reviewing, moving, merging, reverting vandalism including advertising, and blocking company users, for an excellent gallery, for the modest way of your user page and the list of articles to which you added - you are an awesome Wikipedian!

Edgewater Beach Hotel photos --certain it is 1923?[edit]

Hello JeremyA. We are having trouble with conflicting dates at Edgewater Beach Hotel Chicago IL article. Your photo (now used for the infobox for the hotel) has 1923 written in the title, but various sources say the 19 story tower (taller part of the hotel) was built in 1922. The taller tower does not show in that photo, at least to my blind eyes, creating the confusion. Any insight you can share, in the article, or on the talk page for the article? --Prairieplant (talk) 23:56, 11 June 2014 (UTC)

list of twelve-step groups[edit]

Howdy JeremyA. A experienced editor has proposed to change the standard for inclusion of List of twelve-step groups from being a list of wikipedia articles, to being a list of 12 step groups (without the necessity of having an article attached to the entry). The discussion is currently on the talk page. I am contacting you because you have participated in the maintenance of that article. If you have no opinion, please feel free to disregard this notice.
