Defender of Wikipedia[edit]

For outstanding efforts in defending Wikipedia from vandalism, in particular the JFK article, I award you the Defender of Wiki Barnstar -Husnock

--Hey, thank you very much, Husnock. I have now noticed vandalism on several articles that seems to be part of a class assignment gone astray --JimWae 19:39, 2005 Mar 26 (UTC)

history articles on wikipedia?[edit]

Hello Jim, I'm an historian working at the Center for History and New Media at George Mason University ( and we are very interested in digital historical works, including the writing of history on Wikipedia. We'd like to talk to people about their experiences working on articles in Wikipedia, in connection with a larger project on the history of the free and open source software movement. Would you be willing to talk with us about your involvement, either by phone, a/v chat, IM, or email? This could be as lengthy or brief a conversation as you wish.

Thanks for your consideration.

Joan Fragaszy

Sounds interesting - I am going to be very busy the next month - and cannot plan exact times to chat - so let's start with e-mails --JimWae 18:34, 2005 Apr 29 (UTC)

Hi Jim, if you're more available now, I'm still very interested in speaking with you about your work on Wikipedia. Feel free to drop me an email at jfragasz_at_gmu_dot_edu. - Joan, 8/22/05

re: history articles on Wikipedia[edit]

Hi Jim, if you'd like to email me when you have some time I'm still very interested in speaking with you. Thanks, Joan Fragaszy. jfragasz at gmu dot edu

September 11, 2001 attacks[edit]

Examination of public videos reveals evidence of substantially different facts. Consider the contents of this video:* New Video Documentary of WTC Collapse As you watch, note particularly the differences in fact between this video and the wikipedia article, that are verifiable by you by reviewing the sources yourself (ie renting, buying or downloading). We are being lied to. Maybe we want to believe the lies because the truth implies intent from within. -unsigned by anon IP

I am now proud owner of a TUSC account!


Thank you for your work on the existentialism article. After going through the definition issue for the "libertarianism" and "anarchism" pages, I understand how nerve-wracking establishing a definition for a term is when there's never been much general agreement on what the hell it actually means.

LED lamps[edit]

Before starting another editwar, we should discuss the point "Comparison to other lighting technologies". Did you own the G7 Power LED Light Bulb, 900 Lumen, Warm White, 9 Watt? This lamp is bad, it has an CRI of <75 in real. I have tested over 40 different LED-Lamps from all known brands (Pilips, Osram, Toshiba, Samsung, LG, Ledon, Megaman, Bioledex...) and know their quality. In my opinion the referenced lamps should be well known, proved models who are really representive for the possible quality of the LED technology. So why not use the winner of the US Department of Energy's L-Prize, holder of the EPA ENERGY STAR ? This lamp has moren REAL lumen, an good CRI and costs the same? In my opinion, we should change back the LED-Lamp to the Philips Ambient 12.5W.

Koreatown, Manhattan[edit]

Hello JimWae, would you mind answering "Two Questions" on the Talk:Koreatown, Manhattan page? I'm just curious what editors think. Thanks, Castncoot (talk) 15:01, 3 October 2013 (UTC)

Main Page appearance: Jesus[edit]

This is a note to let the main editors of Jesus know that the article will be appearing as today's featured article on December 25, 2013. 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 all, please ask Bencherlite (talk · contribs). You can view the TFA blurb at Wikipedia:Today's featured article/December 25, 2013. 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:

Jesus of Nazareth

Jesus (7–2 BC to 30–33 AD) is the central figure of Christianity, whom the teachings of most Christian denominations hold to be the Son of God and the awaited Messiah of the Old Testament. Virtually all modern scholars of antiquity agree that a historical Jesus existed, although there is little agreement on the reliability of the gospel narratives and how closely the biblical Jesus reflects the historical Jesus. Most scholars agree that Jesus was a Jewish preacher from Galilee, was baptized by John the Baptist, and was crucified in Jerusalem on the orders of the Roman prefect, Pontius Pilate. Christians believe that Jesus was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin, performed miracles, founded the Church, died by crucifixion as a sacrifice to achieve atonement, rose from the dead, and ascended into heaven, from which he will return. The great majority of Christians worship Jesus as the incarnation of God the Son, the second of three Persons of a Divine Trinity. A few Christian groups reject Trinitarianism, wholly or partly, as non-scriptural. In Islam, Jesus is considered one of God's important prophets and the Messiah. (Full article...)

Template talk:Height[edit]

Given your previous involvement in the discussion at Template_talk:Height#Centimetres, I just thought I'd bring a closely related Request for Comment to your attention (as per Wikipedia:Canvassing).--Gibson Flying V (talk) 03:52, 23 January 2014 (UTC)

Consistent Access Dates per MOSNUM[edit]

Hi JimWae. Recently you made an edit to Metrication in the United States changing citation access dates to a format like 2014-01-27. While I don't really have a problem with that, I'm confused with this change because I generated a few of the citations using the Wikipedia citation templates within the source editor. For the access dates, I clicked the "today" button and for one of the citations that had a date, I filled out the "month", "day", and "year" fields, which you condensed into a single "date" field. Thus I find it odd that the citations generated by the template were wrong and needed to be fixed.

It seems to me that either the citation templates aren't up to the current manual of style or the templates are right and you are misinterpreting the manual of style. Could you please look into this? -Thunderforge (talk) 16:33, 28 January 2014 (UTC)

I think pointing you to Template:Cite_web#Deprecated will best answer your question. Regards, --JimWae (talk) 17:18, 28 January 2014 (UTC)


Hello Jim. The article Agnosticism has been promoted to GA Status. Now I have nominated the article for DYK too. I was a bit confused about the selection of hook, as the scope of the article is very wide. Anyway I have posted two hooks. I shall be grateful if you review the hooks, and if necessary propose an alternate hook. Faizan 14:24, 11 February 2014 (UTC)
