Suggestions on the chapter article.[edit]

I asked User:NYCRuss for suggestions on good list of chapter articles, his advice is at User talk:NYCRuss#Category:Kappa Sigma.Naraht (talk) 13:37, 2 June 2010 (UTC)

Thanks so much -- this stuff is very helpful -- I'm beginning to see a lot of room for improvement when I didn't think there could possibly be any more. jheiv talk contribs 13:48, 2 June 2010 (UTC)

Bravo for your defense, let me know how I can help.Naraht (talk) 02:16, 8 June 2010 (UTC)

Thanks, its a shame we can't spend this time being productive -- and sorry for unknowingly involving one of the articles you've spent some time on -- but I'm pretty sure we're safe (at at least for the time being). jheiv talk contribs 07:53, 8 June 2010 (UTC)

Amateur_Radio_Emergency_Service[edit]

I've replied to your comment on the discussion page.

I can appreciate that, maybe there a compromise is possible? jheiv talk contribs 01:48, 9 June 2010 (UTC)
Hi. Well thanks for another viewpoint on the talk page there. I didn't anticipate this level of debate, but here we are. Dawnseeker2000 02:19, 9 June 2010 (UTC)

I'm finding it difficult to digest the fact that this new user is against adding a link to the D-STAR/D-RATS item. It baffles me. Anyhow, the article could very well use a section on technology used. Some of the communication tools that ARES uses are standard amateur radio items. But as the article stands it doesn't even mention packet. Developing some content that speaks of digital technologies would be good and I would welcome you to help out there. Thanks. Dawnseeker2000 17:57, 9 June 2010 (UTC)

It was me...[edit]

... who requested an account on the ACC account creation interface. Hope this helps :-) jheiv talk contribs 20:33, 13 September 2010 (UTC)

Thank you for applying to access the account creation tool. I have approved your request. You may now access the tool here. Before you do so, please read the tool's guide to familiarize yourself with the process. You may also want to join #wikipedia-en-accounts on irc and the mailing list. Keep in mind that the ACC tool is a powerful program, and misuse may result in your access being suspended by a tool administrator. Don't hesitate to get in touch with me if you have any questions. Thank you for participating in the account creation process. FunPika 20:39, 13 September 2010 (UTC)

User:Ibc111[edit]

I noticed your warning at User talk:Ibc111 (I have worried about the video links that user persistently adds without discussion). In case you missed it, that user has tried to post a message on your talk page, but it ended up in a subpage: User talk:Jheiv/Pages (I assume you won't see a "new messages" indication for that). Johnuniq (talk) 00:46, 21 September 2010 (UTC)

I did miss it -- thanks for the note! jheiv talk contribs 01:11, 21 September 2010 (UTC)

Moved note from User:Ibc111[edit]

Dear Jheiv: Thanks for telling me the rule. I did read them but unclear how to apply to my case. Your points are more specific. It takes experience. First, why am I interested in interactive network simulation? I have trouble to learn protocols in the past and wish to use simulation and visualization to get to the key points first, then read complete and accurate information provided by traditional materials. Now I a tool to do so. I want to share. Here are some questions that I'd like to seek for your help:

  1. Will Wikipdia find a way to let users contribute content presented in different forms like interactive simulation? Is there any experiment going on?
  2. I have no intention to add url in article to be index by Google. (I thought it flows better. Readers can "see" a demo while reading accurate text.) Is placing url in External links acceptable?
  3. In External links of "Sliding Window Protocol," I see two demos (Flsah and Shockwave.) I added a Flash based simulation below these two demos. I thought it will be OK. But it was removed. I do not understand why. (If you play this simulaation, it shows how to relate window parameter values changes to window's sliding actions.)
  4. I intend to share. i can create a web site such as abc.org and place url pointing to abc.org. Is this acceptable?

I appreciate any help from long time Wikipedian like you. Thanks -ib
Moved from User talk:jheiv/Pages. jheiv talk contribs 01:16, 21 September 2010 (UTC) Hi ib,

First, I want to say that my warning on your talk page was as a result of this edit, which, as far as I can tell from your contributions, looks like the only edit you have made to the Sliding Window Protocol page -- please correct me if I'm wrong. That edit seemed like an editing test or vandalism, and I quickly noted a few other warnings about policy problems with your edits, so I went with the level 3 warning. Please don't take offense to the warning -- many users without the interest in improving articles come and edit pages maliciously and it's extremely difficult to tell the malicious from the well-intentioned. That being said however, it seems as if you have good intentions and, although I am by no means an expert, but I'll do my best to answer these questions and help you. I'll answer each question separately.

(Quick note, I link to a lot of policy / articles within my response -- please consider taking the time to read all of them, especially the policy ones.)

  1. Will Wikipdia find a way to let users contribute content presented in different forms like interactive simulation? Is there any experiment going on?
    I'm not aware of any experiment going on that will allow users to experience interactive simulations. However, if you are looking for "richer" media, many Wikipedia articles feature things that are more dynamic than plain text. For example, the article on Dijkstra's algorithm features an animated gif that shows the progression of the algorithm as does the article on Breadth-first search. These are especially helpful in my opinion and make use of some of the advantages a digital encyclopedia enjoy.
  2. I have no intention to add url in article to be index by Google. (I thought it flows better. Readers can "see" a demo while reading accurate text.) Is placing url in External links acceptable?
    There exists some pretty extensive policy documentation on external links, here -- I suggest you read that (a few times, it can be confusing) and if you have specific questions about whether a certain external link is appropriate for an article, start a discussion on the external links noticeboard, a forum where many experienced Wikipedians offer their input about the acceptability of a given link in the hope of finding consensus.
  3. In External links of "Sliding Window Protocol," I see two demos (Flsah and Shockwave.) I added a Flash based simulation below these two demos. I thought it will be OK. But it was removed. I do not understand why. (If you play this simulaation, it shows how to relate window parameter values changes to window's sliding actions.)
    I can't find your edit (it must be under an IP rather than your username) so I can't really help you with those specifics. But like I said, make sure that any external link you wish to add meets the criteria at WP:EL before you add it. If you are certain it does, but it is removed then you have a few options.
    1. Start up a dialog with the editor who removed it, and see why they object.
    2. Start up a discussion on the article's talk page about the link and whether it should be included. If you do this, it's nice to notify the editor who removed it that you have started a discussion on the article's talk page and hope they'll be able to add their input.
    3. Start up a discussion on the external links noticeboard (link above) and see what their opinion is.
    An important tenant of Wikipedia policy is to be bold but to always seek consensus, especially if the edit is contentious.
  4. I intend to share. i can create a web site such as abc.org and place url pointing to abc.org. Is this acceptable?
    I think my earlier answers probably covered this, but in summation, it depends on the context, on the article you wish to insert a link into, the value of the external link you wish to add, whether the same material can be incorporated into the article itself (without requiring an external link) as well as many other factors. If you have specifics, I'd suggest starting a thread on the article talk page. I may already be following the page, but once you start a discussion on the talk page, feel free to come back here and ask for my input.

Lastly, I'll point you to a few more places that might be of interest to you: WP:WELCOME, WP:HELP, WP:POLICY.

I want to thank you for your questions and for your interest in improving the Encyclopedia -- I hope I've helped a little bit and please let me know if I can help with anything else. jheiv talk contribs 01:51, 21 September 2010 (UTC)

Sean Bielat[edit]

Look I am not going to dispute the Bielat page anymore. The article will change after the election next month. If Bielat doesn't win he probably will no longer have any claim to notability anyway and the article will most likely be AFDed, but we'll wait for the election results. However if you think that stating that "However, many note Scott Brown's upset in Massachusetts' 2010 special election as cause for some concern for incumbent Congressman Frank", when Brown has not even endorsed Bielat and has nothing to do with Frank, is not POV while pointing out that Massachusetts, whose entire Congressional delegation is Democratic, is "overwhelmingly" Democratic, is POV then I do not know what to tell you. You don't seem to have any problem with the adjective "self-made" (which I inserted by the way), so your instincts seem to be somewhat skewed. Rms125a@hotmail.com (talk) 12:57, 6 October 2010 (UTC)

Well I agree it is someone's POV, but it's clearly cited as to whose POV it is -- in fact, I think keeping that makes the article more NPOV in that it adds balance. I still don't understand your Brown argument, however. I read the article like this: its clear the odds are stacked against him (Democratic leaning state), but there is some hope (Scott Brown's upset). Without that, it seems like a futile (although many may argue its futile nonetheless) effort.
I didn't notice self-made, you are right that many of the changes you made I didn't object to -- only the ones that were unsourced and introduced POV.
Lastly, I agree with you that the article will probably be much less notable if he loses the election -- and I, too, suspect it will fail notability. jheiv talk contribs 19:22, 6 October 2010 (UTC)
Just readded a few missing words that make my last message a bit more comprehensible. Just in case there is any misunderstanding -- I am not a supporter of Barney Frank! I don't like one-party states, red or blue. Let's see what happens on November 2. Rms125a@hotmail.com (talk) 23:58, 6 October 2010 (UTC)

"Prestigious"[edit]

I am removing this word from the lead again, in direct compliance with WP:PEACOCK. Other issues may be subject to consensus, but this issue is directly addressed by Wikipedia policy. If you revert it again, you will be blocked. —Eustress talk 14:31, 28 November 2010 (UTC)

(edit conflict) I think you are a bit confused on the policy. The word prestigious isn't being used to assert notability of the subject of the article -- that is, Penn State -- but rather to help the reader understand the satellite campus system and how the campuses fit together. Further, as use of the word is now sourced from the Executive Director of admissions of the university, I plan on replacing it if it is erroneously (imho) removed. If that results in a block, then we'll take that up on the Administrator's noticeboard I suppose. jheiv talk contribs 14:38, 28 November 2010 (UTC)
Okay... I think I see what you're getting at with the word. Let's put quotes around it so it is clear. —Eustress talk 14:34, 28 November 2010 (UTC)
Just one problem... where is any mention of this campus being the most prestigous in the source? —Eustress talk 14:36, 28 November 2010 (UTC)
Thats odd, because I searched for prestigious -- anyway, would competitive suffice given that sourcing? I expect that is all the sentence was suppose to convey. jheiv talk contribs 14:38, 28 November 2010 (UTC)
Sorry, won't suffice. If you can find a reliable source saying it is the "flagship" campus (much more neutrally worded than "prestigious"), that would be ideal; but any such sentiment should remain off until something can be found. —Eustress talk 14:44, 28 November 2010 (UTC)
My suggestion is that we remove prestigious and replace it with what was cited, competitive. What are your thoughts on that? jheiv talk contribs 14:45, 28 November 2010 (UTC)
Alternatively, this page from the PSU law school cites UP as the "flagship" campus. jheiv talk contribs 14:47, 28 November 2010 (UTC)
The Law School won't serve as a reliable source (it's not independent)... I'm okay with what is cited: "most competitive campus". —Eustress talk 14:51, 28 November 2010 (UTC)
I'll go ahead and make that change. (You beat me to it) -- I'll also try to find a better source for flagship, although, I'm not sure who would better be able to identify the flagship of a school system other than the school itself (it seems to me it follows the same logic as, if a company press release or earnings report would not be sufficient sourcing for the name of the CEO, what is?). Thanks. jheiv talk contribs 14:54, 28 November 2010 (UTC)

Moving pages[edit]

Hi Jheiv. Next time you move a page to make way for a dab page (as you did with Spider Webb), please remember to update the existing links to the page. I've fixed the links for Spider Webb. Thanks. DH85868993 (talk) 05:01, 7 May 2011 (UTC)

I read that notice, and clicked "What links here" but I must have been on the wrong page when I did it, because it came up with nothing and I just moved on. Sorry! jheiv talk contribs 05:54, 7 May 2011 (UTC)
No problem. DH85868993 (talk) 00:14, 8 May 2011 (UTC)

Tussey Mountain[edit]

Why do you remove my edits as vandalism? PSOC Ski Patrol is an organization pertinent to Tussey Mountain. We are employed there and have been around longer than the resort itself. There is no copyright violation because I have permission to use the content from the website cited as a copyright violation by you. There is also no reason for this content to be considered vandalism. Yakiyos (talk) 18:13, 23 May 2011 (UTC)

I removed the edits for a number of reasons. First off, just because you have permission, doesn't mean you can add it to Wikipedia. See the policy at Donating Copyrighted Material. Second, much of the information is not appropriate for the article and goes unnecessary depth about what I can only assume is you and your friends. See the policies at WP:NOTPROMOTION, WP:COI, WP:SOAPBOX, WP:NOTABILITY. Wikipedia is not a place for you to mirror information that is already on the web. It is an encyclopedia, and names of random staff members, etc do not belong. jheiv talk contribs 22:42, 23 May 2011 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

File permission problem with File:JohnSurma.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:JohnSurma.jpg, which you've sourced to (Flickr Image is CC BY-NC 2.0). 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 take this step, add {{OTRS pending}} to the file description page to prevent premature deletion.

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:File copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:File 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 created in your upload log. Files lacking evidence of permission may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. You may wish to read the Wikipedia's image use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.  Ronhjones  (Talk) 18:54, 4 February 2012 (UTC)

Adrianne Wadewitz Memorial edit-a-thons[edit]

Adrianne Wadewitz edit-a-thons in Southern New England
Wikimania 2012 portrait 102 by ragesoss, 2012-07-13.JPG

As you may have already heard, the Wikipedia community lost an invaluable member of the community last month. Adrianne Wadewitz was a feminist scholar of 18th-Century British literature, and a prolific editor of the site. As part of a worldwide series of tributes, New England Wikimedians, in conjunction with local institutions of higher learning, have created three edit-a-thons that will be occurring in May and June.
