Royal Coat of Arms of Hawaii request[edit]

Dear Kavebear,

Firstly I would like to apologize for the delay, there is absolutely no excuse for making you wait for so long without replying to your request. Secondly I will be uploading the other version (the one depicted on the gates of the palace) very soon. If I made a mistake or if you want anything altered please feel free to leave me a message, Sorry again. Regards, Sodacan (talk) 18:15, 18 February 2012 (UTC)

Thanks a whole lot. This coat of arm is perfect.--KAVEBEAR (talk) 18:31, 18 February 2012 (UTC)
Do you have anymore information on the coat of arms? if there are enough sources we could start: Royal Coat of Arms of Hawaii, that would be awesome. Sodacan (talk) 18:38, 18 February 2012 (UTC)
Plenty but I don't have the currently with all my schoolwork.--KAVEBEAR (talk) 18:41, 18 February 2012 (UTC)
No problem, completely understand! I know only a little bit about Hawaiian history, did not know the supporters on either side were actual historical figures, and twins for that matter. Just thought that they were ordinary Koa warriors. Sodacan (talk) 18:47, 18 February 2012 (UTC)
The stripes on the lower right part of the shield seems to be different. It is suppose to end in blue like this one with nine stripes there and eight on the top left. Nine or ten stripes still disagrees with all the rest of the coats of arms. --KAVEBEAR (talk) 19:11, 18 February 2012 (UTC)
Fixed. Sodacan (talk) 19:19, 18 February 2012 (UTC)

Also if you are ever feeling like you want to do some more there are different versions of this coat of arms on the online Iolani Palace collection.--KAVEBEAR (talk) 19:16, 18 February 2012 (UTC)

Sure, I am drawing this version, which is also the one on the palace gates, should be finished soon. Sodacan (talk) 19:23, 18 February 2012 (UTC)
Okay. The one on palace invitation is the one I had more in mind; this or this. It's Kalakaua's much more imperial and grandiose version.--KAVEBEAR (talk) 20:46, 18 February 2012 (UTC)
I will make that one instead. Sodacan (talk) 02:56, 19 February 2012 (UTC)
Uploaded the second one, the grand Kalakaua coat of arms is coming soon. Question, I am assuming that the order on this coat of arms is the Order of Kamehameha I?. Sodacan (talk) 16:07, 20 February 2012 (UTC)
Thanks it looks great. Yes, it is the order of Kamehameha I, Knight Grand Cross, seen here. Also do consider both link when creating it, I would trust the Iolani Palace this link also.--KAVEBEAR (talk) 20:52, 20 February 2012 (UTC)
Could you improve these two images File:Crown of Hawaii.svg and File:Princess Kaiulani Flag (1875-1899).svg by adding your version of the crown and coat of arms to it? And could you please touch up the drawing of the cronw on File:Kuhina Nui flag.svg? Thanks.--KAVEBEAR (talk) 20:52, 20 February 2012 (UTC)
Also one last thing, what is your opinion on the skin tone? --KAVEBEAR (talk) 21:13, 20 February 2012 (UTC)
I will upload a new version of the crown and those flags. As for the skin tone, I don't really have an opinion, I have made it (in my view at least) the most 'realistic' it could be. So it's probably better if you just give me some advice instead! the colours are easily changed so it's not a big deal if you wanted it altered. Also I now have a copy of: 'Hawaii's great seal and coat of arms' by Meiric K. Dutton, 1960, so I might start expanding on the Seal of Hawaii soon. Sodacan (talk) 03:00, 21 February 2012 (UTC)
Last one done! Sodacan (talk) 12:52, 17 November 2012 (UTC)

Family History - Wassman-Davison[edit]

Dear Kavebear,

I stumbled across your page on George Beckley and other Hawaiian history pages when searching my family history. I would be honoured if you would consider sharing any information, especially photos, relating to the Davison's ancestors. My Great Grandmother was Wilhemina Edna Davison Wassman, her (my) relatives are the ones you write about! Please consider contacting me - I will give you my email (talk) 09:36, 3 November 2014 (UTC)

I know little beyond the immediate first two generations of Davison in Hawaii and these are all the photos I've have relating to them.

DKY Issue with James Wood Bush[edit]

Symbol question.svg Hello! Your submission of James Wood Bush at the Did You Know nominations page has been reviewed, and some issues with it may need to be clarified. Please review the comment(s) underneath your nomination's entry and respond there as soon as possible. This is a very well done article and meets all DYK criteria except the creation time. Since this article was created in the mainspace in July 2014, moved to your user space in August 2014, and then back to the mainspace in December, the five day time frame would apply from July, not December. I have noted this on the nomination but have asked for a second opinion just to be sure. Mike Cline (talk) 15:16, 3 December 2014 (UTC)

Knock it off![edit]

Either work within our guidelines or you can be blocked. I personally don't care about your comments and insults but don't use the summery for discussion about how you don't like something. The edit summary is for explaining your edit, Not for inciting a fight. You act like you have been here for a few weeks and you have been editing for years. Either you find a way to collaborate better and not power drive your way through an article I just created to be as annoying as you can or I will have no choice but take begin formal complaints for long term behavior with me over a bunch of articles. This harassment has gone on too long!--Mark Miller (talk) 10:16, 15 December 2014 (UTC)

You knock it off. Stop threatening and making everything personal; my purpose in life is not to annoy you so stop claiming I am trying to annoy you. You may be annoy by my actions but that most certainly doesn't mean I am out to get you and annoy you. My purpose was to write a good article not anything to do with you or anything in the past. I have done nothing wrong and I am standing by everything that I have done. --KAVEBEAR (talk) 10:18, 15 December 2014 (UTC)
AGAIN KNOCK IT OFF! You have done plenty wrong. You bulldoze your crap on the page and you are often wrong on policy and procedure. LEARN! I am not your teacher. You need to get your stuff together and stop misusing the edit summary. Stop removing perfectly good content in sources because you just don't like it. I told you to stay away from me the other day and now you decide to fuck with me on a new article I create just to be a pain. I'm done.--Mark Miller (talk) 10:33, 15 December 2014 (UTC)
"and now you decide to fuck with me on a new article I create just to be a pain." Stop making these false accusation! Every conflict with me since Pau rider has been the same again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again. You keep claiming that I am out to get you, annoy you or that I am specifically targeting you when I am only interested in the topics and articles. I have tried to be cordial in order for me to actually make changes to article without you blowing up on me, but you keep doing just that and continue on insulting me and threatening me. I am actually interested in Haalelea's article by itself not because you created it (seriously get over yourself). I am going to make it perfectly clear here I don't care about you at all (neither negatively or positively). I neither hate you or love you. I am here to edit articles and make sure errors are not made. You can perfectly well file a formal complaint because I seen I have done nothing wrong and will stand by everything I have done. --KAVEBEAR (talk) 10:38, 15 December 2014 (UTC)
Oh bullshit. You know damn well I told you to stay away from me the other day and then you just think it hilarious to start right on a new article I created. I have stayed away from all of your article on purpose because you are such a disruptive editor. You did it once and you are doing it once again. You just have a vendetta against me and are trying to be as painful as possible. I thought you retired? What are you still doing here? You are more active than ever. Some feel editors that use templates like that and are as prolific as you are being dishonest. You are basically telling people your seldom edit but you seem to be all up in my freeing face whenever I create a new article these last few.--Mark Miller (talk) 10:58, 15 December 2014 (UTC)
Again. Stop making false accusations. Recent increased activities...I am in school most of the time and its Christmas Break right now. But I have no need to explain to you any of this because I can come back edit and stop editing whenever I choose. Unless Wikipedia has a policy specifically forbidding users from editing once they put up a retired or semi-retired sign or puts a quota on their edits. --KAVEBEAR (talk) 11:07, 15 December 2014 (UTC)
I've made it clear with you again and again that I am only here to edit. I don't want to discuss personal stuff, bringing up disputes of the past, or your accusations of ulterior motives. The only thing I wanted to discuss was relating to the articles and the content being added or removed. --KAVEBEAR (talk) 11:21, 15 December 2014 (UTC)

Information icon There is currently a discussion at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents regarding an issue with which you may have been involved. Thank you.

I have withdrawn that complaint for the time being.--Mark Miller (talk) 13:37, 15 December 2014 (UTC)
Ok. I will address it whenever you decide to resubmit it. I will be on and off here and now since its the holiday also and until school starts back for me but I will find the time to defend myself. --KAVEBEAR (talk) 02:10, 20 December 2014 (UTC)
No plans to re-file any time during the holidays or into January unless things escalate of course, but no.--Mark Miller (talk) 00:45, 21 December 2014 (UTC)
In fact, the way things work in general on Wikipedia with behavior is that most incidents become stale after a period. When there is a pattern of behavior (whether that be two editors not conflicting or the accusations each have against each other) suddenly bringing the issue forward when there is not current issue to deal with can make cases carry less weight in the yes of many, simply because it makes the filing or complaining editor look vindictive or have other negative perspectives. While your own declarations on Wikipedia suggest you are a young college student, and I am a self proclaimed 50something, I don't think we are too different to try to get a long better.--Mark Miller (talk) 01:03, 26 December 2014 (UTC)
