License tagging for Image:Amyjacobson.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Amyjacobson.jpg. Wikipedia gets thousands of images uploaded every day, and in order to verify that the images can be legally used on Wikipedia, the source and copyright status must be indicated.

Notability of The Truth Laid Bear[edit]

Information icon.svg

Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on The Truth Laid Bear, by another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. The tag claims that it should be speedily deleted because The Truth Laid Bear is an article about a certain website, blog, forum, or other web content that does not assert the importance or significance of that web location. Please read our criteria for speedy deletion, particularly item 7 under Articles, as well as notability guidelines for websites. Please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources which verify their content.

To contest the tagging and request that administrators wait before possibly deleting The Truth Laid Bear, please affix the template {{hangon}} to the page, and put a note on its talk page. If the article has already been deleted, see the advice and instructions at WP:WMD. Feel free to contact the bot operator if you have any questions about this or any problems with this bot, bearing in mind that this bot is only informing you of the nomination for speedy deletion; it does not perform any nominations or deletions itself.

Speedy deletion of Nothing: Something to Believe In[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on Nothing: Something to Believe In requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a very short article providing little or no context to the reader. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the article (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the article's talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. h i s s p a c e r e s e a r c h 13:14, 7 November 2007 (UTC)

Trigger Man (video game)[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of Trigger Man (video game), and it appears to be very similar to another wikipedia page: Trigger Man. It is possible that you have accidentally duplicated contents, or made an error while creating the page— you might want to look at the pages and see if that is the case.

This message was placed automatically, and it is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article and it would be appreciated if you could drop a note on the maintainer's talk page. CorenSearchBot (talk) 16:27, 26 May 2008 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:BusterFinger.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:BusterFinger.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use. Suggestions on how to do so can be found here.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'image' 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 "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Do you want to opt out of receiving this notice? Rettetast (talk) 21:36, 26 June 2008 (UTC)

Palin Section Under Church[edit]

I saw your question about why Palin mention was deleted from the Wasilla article. She is mentioned under the notable residents section, and under the church section where she is listed as a former congregant. I think I understand the answer to your question re Palin on Wasilla. It is because she is not proved tied to any of the controversial church things, but I don't understand why the Wasilla Bible Church article was shut down, and the Wasilla Assembly of God was not, or why the difference between Palin's churches and Obama's that merits articles on the latter, but ot on the former. The thing making Wasilla Bible Church notble, and a permanent burn into the memories of everyone in SF and LA is- Per the Associated Press, et al, in 2008, the rural church announced that it would hold a convention to pray for God to convert gays into straights. Ref - http://ap.google.com/article/ALeqM5jNQg39rgjbGe3663rXSnmIi4czCAD931F9180 /ref

  • I will put this section on the talk page -

Wasilla Bible Church Praying for God to convert Gays into Heteros

Others have told on other talk pages that this is not uncommon for many churches. But I could find no info on any who do so in Wiki articles. I am from San Francisco, and I worked the soup kitchen at Glide Memorial Church every Sunday, but if such a prayer conference existed in the SF area, it would be the most heavily attended conference at any church, but not to do the prayers. I also worked for years consulting folks in Statistics at Stanford’s Hoover Institute, which is as conservative as it gets, but anyone there would think I was joking if I said this.
  • 1. To make the assertion that this convention is not notable more objective. Can anyone direct me to a Wiki article where such a practice is described as existing in America?
  • 2. Would the info go under the “Community Services” in the Wasilla Assembly of God church, not Wasilla Bible Church under Wasilla?
  • Also, I will put this -

'Was your info on Wasilla Bible Church deleted? If anyone is getting their edits deleted since the Wasilla article is not the place for Wasilla Bible Church details, like are growing on the Wasilla Bible ChurchPlease don’t get into a war deleting and undeleting things. Remember, everyone is assumed to be editing in good faith.

Please put your info and references in this talk page section.

I am completely new to Wikipedia, so if you can help me understand how things work, please do. EricDiesel (talk) 21:15, 9 September 2008 (UTC)

Notability of Jessica "Sugar" Kiper[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Jessica "Sugar" Kiper requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article, which appears to be about a real person, organization (band, club, company, etc.), or web content, does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not indicate the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable. If this is the first page that you have created, then you should read the guide to writing your first article.

If you think that you can assert the notability of the subject, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the article (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the article's talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would confirm the subject's notability under Wikipedia guidelines.

For guidelines on specific types of articles, you may want to check out our criteria for biographies, for web sites, for bands, or for companies. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. Schuym1(talk) 03:10, 15 December 2008 (UTC)

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion(s) by adding your comments to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/2010 East Texas Church Burnings. Please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate.

You forgot to state what the problem was in the article. You did not clarify what your dispute was. I can not change it if I do not know why you dispute and what part is a problem with you.

If you let me know, I would try my best to change it to fit the standards more apropriately.

Deletion of John Milton Cooper article?[edit]

You can remove this notice at any time by removing the {{Talkback}} or {{Tb}} template.

Fat&Happy (talk) 03:47, 16 April 2010 (UTC)

I already did a couple of fixes before I realized the extent of the issue. At least the Woodrow Wilson and William Howard Taft articles, maybe one other I don't recall. Generally, the "piped link" method I used would be preferable to creating redirect pages for all conceivable variations of the name (just a helpful hint). Of course, if the article should be renamed John Milton Cooper, Jr., or even just John M. Cooper, Jr., that's a separate issue, but the preference on how to link to the eventual article name holds. My understanding of WP naming policy is to use the shortest commonly recognized name that won't be considered ambiguous (e.g. if Cooper, Sr. was not notable enough for an article, the Jr. wouldn't be required), but I'm not exactly an expert on Wiki rules and policies so that may be wrong.

Bilateral relations articles[edit]

Hi. I notice that you have been creating articles on relations between pairs of countries. I don't know if you are aware of it, but a year or two ago there was a considerable row about these articles: some people set out, in effect, to create them for all possible combinations, others felt that stubs saying no more than "X-Y relations are relations between X and Y" were pointless, especially in the more extreme cases, and would be better merged to "Diplomatic relations of X" articles. There were many hotly-disputed AfDs where the same arguments were endlessly rehashed. In the end, a task force, Wikipedia:WikiProject International relations/Bilateral relations task force was set up, to try to thrash out agreed standards. I wasn't much involved, and I don't know what the eventual conclusion was, but the row died down, so I presume some compromise was agreed. Before creating many of these articles, you might like to check out that task force, read its talk page and maybe talk to some of its members. Regards, JohnCD (talk) 20:05, 17 December 2010 (UTC)

Possible C-SPAN project[edit]

Hello KConWiki, pleased to finally make your acquaintance—I've been aware of your work on the Booknotes lists for some time. Great work, and congratulations for completing (I think) such a big project. You might recognize my handle, too. Since about this time last year I've researched and rewritten most of the other C-SPAN articles, including the main Booknotes article (and I'm grateful you've adapted some of it for the list pages).

I actually come to you today with an idea for a collaboration, if you are willing and have the time. As you are likely aware, the C-SPAN Video Library has a vast archive of historically significant videos related to U.S. politics, available free on the web. Because C-SPAN is actually a client of mine (although I was a fan long before they ever were) I'm reluctant to just start posting them to External links sections of relevant articles; the last thing I want, or C-SPAN wants, is to engage in link-spamming. And yet, I do think a great many of these videos would be useful resources for a great many topics.

For that reason, I wonder if you would be interested in helping me; either reviewing links I suggest and posting them if appropriate, or giving me your independent opinion about their suitability for inclusion. If so, I could create a project page and begin making recommendations. If you're too busy or not interested, that's fine, too. But I thought this might be something you'd be interested in. Cheers, WWB Too (talk) 15:52, 15 September 2011 (UTC)

Hi - Thanks for the kind words. I think that a C-Span project page of the sort you describe (with the cautions that you mention) sounds great. I'm not sure how much I can commit to of the top of my head, but I'd be happy to see what you have in mind. I'm sure other people would be interested as well.
As for the Booknotes lists, I still have to go through and fix the links for 1992 and forward (catching up from when they changed the Booknotes website). Then, I want to visit each of the pages for the books with articles, the authors with articles, and maybe a few of the topics, and either add a transcript/video link, or else correct them if they have one of the old links.
KConWiki (talk) 00:37, 16 September 2011 (UTC)
OK, it's a plan. I certainly understand your time is limited, and there is no urgency on my end. I will also bring it to the attention of editors involved with relevant WikiProjects. Before I do, sometime over the next few days I'll set up a project page in my user space, add a list of the first few video links I have in mind, and on which articles I think they'd be most helpful. Once I've done that, I'll let you know.
And I may be telling you something you already know, but all past Booknotes episodes are archived at the Video Library site. Look to the console below the featured video and there's a drop-down menu to the right called "All Categories". Booknotes is one of the options. (And of course you can find episodes via the search bar as well). Cheers, WWB Too (talk) 13:15, 16 September 2011 (UTC)
BTW, the link fixing should be all done now. KConWiki (talk) 02:09, 2 October 2011 (UTC)

C-SPAN progress[edit]

Hi there, KConWiki. Some progress to report on the C-SPAN Video Library project. I've obtained from C-SPAN a list of the 500 individuals who, as of last week, have appeared on C-SPAN the most over time. (#1 Bill Clinton ... #500 Jim Talent) and I've been comparing this list against Wikipedia articles to see whether the notable names among them (a significant majority) have C-SPAN links included in their ELs (still a majority, but some surprising gaps).

I've also found that a few Wikipedia templates already include C-SPAN as a parameter, significantly Template:CongLinks and Template:C-SPAN. In order to make it as easy as possible for others to help out, I've prepared the specific markup for each, and started a table, which will grow as I work through the list. You can find it here: User:WWB_Too/C-SPAN_ELs

If you're interested in adding some, please feel free, and I'll keep adding to the list. Meanwhile, I'll notify relevant WikiProjects. And if you have any other suggestions, I'd be very appreciative. Cheers, WWB Too (talk) 13:47, 27 October 2011 (UTC)

I've obtained from C-SPAN a list of the 500 individuals who, as of last week, have appeared on C-SPAN the most over time. (#1 Bill Clinton ... #500 Jim Talent) - This sounds great, sign me up for 100 or so and I will review them.
In other news, I am pretty sure I have fixed all the Booknotes links from when they changed Booknotes.org around. I am currently adding in subjects on the Booknotes-by-year pages (working on 1992 now). KConWiki (talk) 01:08, 28 October 2011 (UTC)
Very cool. I have posted just the first 10 so far, but I'm working on posting the rest to the project page over the next few weeks. And just a few minutes ago now I've posted an invitation to editors on various WikiProjects: Media, Politics, Journalism and Television to see if anyone there is interested. Should be interesting. Meanwhile, if you'd like any help with the Booknotes pages, let me know if there's anything specific you could use help with. I'd be happy to return the favor.

External links[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute to the encyclopedia, one or more of the external links you added to the page Albert Einstein do not comply with our guidelines for external links and have been removed. Wikipedia is not a collection of links; nor should it be used as a platform for advertising or promotion, and doing so is contrary to the goals of this project. Because Wikipedia uses nofollow tags, external links do not alter search engine rankings. If you feel the link should be added to the article, please discuss it on the article's talk page before reinserting it. Please take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing constructively to this encyclopedia. I have also removed 30 of your recently added external links to www.booksore.org on a number of other articles per wp:ELNO items 1, 11, 13. Please have a look at that list.

I have to second this note, although I wouldn't have issued you a templated message. Even if it is not your intention, your recent edits sure give off the appearance of spamming. Please try not to add links en masse like this in the future. Not every booknotes link needs to be on Wikipedia. ThemFromSpace 21:55, 26 December 2011 (UTC)
Hello TFS, and happy holidays. Thanks for your comment, and I want to be sensitive to this question. I don't want to give the appearance of spamming, but almost by definition, "spam" implies something junky or unwarranted or that makes use of the least common denominator. I think that this is not the case for the vast majority of the links I am adding. I would like to complete this project, and then the community can trim as needed. If I thought that even only 50% of the links would be ultimately appropriate for the articles about these authors and/or books and/or specialized topics, then I would not be trying to be as thorough as I am. I genuinely believe, however, that after it all works itself out, that maybe only 5-10% of the links I have added will be found to be questionable. (And when I say "questionable", I mean just that - that some people will feel strongly that they should be zapped, and some will feel strongly that they be kept.) But as noted before, I invite discussion on this matter, and I invite interested parties to watch one or two of the interviews for further context. THanks. KConWiki (talk) 22:23, 26 December 2011 (UTC)
I agree with KConWiki that this is not unwanted, useless generic spam -- it is NOT a link to a generic website but to specific sites exactly matched to the needs of Wikipedia articles. These sources are unique, and valuable to readers. It is not a promotion of the "Booknotes" program--it has been off the air for many years and now comprises a historical resource. Rjensen (talk) 22:38, 26 December 2011 (UTC)
Additionally, let me mention something else, just to put it out there: I am not now, nor have I ever been, nor do I expect to be in the future, a recipient of any $$$ from C-SPAN or any related party. (WWB Too has indicated on numerous occasions in this discussion that he was, which is fine.) The reason I love Booknotes (and C-SPAN in general) is the same reason that I love Wikipedia - That they are both unique and fantastic ways to freely communicate vast amounts of ideas and information to a wide audience of specialists and interested amateurs, and everyone in bewteen. While I will concede that the Wiki article for Einstein (or Churchill, or Jefferson, or Hitler, or FDR, or Stalin, or certain others) might be of such breadth that an argument could be made (though it would not be a one-sided argument) that individual Booknotes links are not appropriate for those pages, that same argument would weaken significantly if made about the use of Booknotes links on the pages for T.R. Reid, Michael Korda, Stuart Rochester, or Norman Podhoretz, all of which I intend to add appropriate links to in the relatively near future. KConWiki (talk) 22:53, 26 December 2011 (UTC)

Booknotes[edit]

Hey, thanks for the heads-up on that. I find DVdm's perspective to be rather strange and, frankly, disconcerting. As you'll see, I've addressed what seem to me like rather significant misinterpretations of specific parts of WP:ELNO, and I'll keep an eye on it. By the way, funny coincidence: just today I've got 'round to posting the "complete" list of missing C-SPAN ELs from biographical articles. I'd love to get your assistance with those as well, but maybe you should hold off for the moment: I've got a mind to see if I can offer up some C-SPAN swag in return for assistance, perhaps using WP:REWARD as a launch point. Any ideas you might have in that regard would be most welcome. Cheers, WWB Too (talk) 17:51, 23 December 2011 (UTC)

Wikipedia is not an collection of external links. I do not see how these are appropriate on all the pages they are being added on. Has consensus been obtained for this? Seems a little spammy in my opinion to add this to a few hundred pages.--Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 22:31, 29 December 2011 (UTC)
Hello, and thanks for chiming in. I noticed that you reverted the add for the Penicillin article, which is fine (I was halfway considering not adding it to that page, but I ended up doing it anyhow). As for the question of spamminess / appropriatemess, perhaps you could take a look at the discussion here - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Spam#Not_sure_about_Booknotes_in_external_links (there is a whole discussion that has unfolded about this over there.) In short, I am of the belief that 90+% of these adds will stand the test of time and scrutiny. KConWiki (talk) 23:19, 29 December 2011 (UTC)
Spam is not at issue here--the links are unique & useful to users. Rjensen (talk) 00:03, 30 December 2011 (UTC)
(ec)
KConWiki, I'd like to comment on that 90+% thing. You seem to put the burden of checking 100% and removal of 10-% of your external links avalanche upon other editors. For instance, take the Penicillin article. Don't you think it would have been fair to the community if you had gone all the way, by being more careful and not adding it to that page? A similar thing happened with the Einstein article, where we had to remove the link twice. Please consider reviewing your additions and remove, say, at least half of the 10-% you suspect are inappropriate, and that Rjensen and WWB Too take care of the other halve, per comments here above and below. Thanks - DVdm (talk) 10:51, 30 December 2011 (UTC)
Hello - Let me expand on that 90+% comment - It is my genuine belief that all of these links have value. I would not have put them there in the first place if I did not think they were valuable, pertinent, and appropriate. As mentioned elsewhere, I did not add them to subject pages that in my opinion were too general. That being said, I realize that there is room for disagreement. If the consensus on the Einstein or Penicillin articles is that the links do not belong, then OK, no big deal. But there are now hundreds of links to hundreds of hours of serious discussion on article topics (often with authors who are themselves the subjects of wiki articles) that are linked to from pertinent articles. I don't see this as having created a burden for anyone. KConWiki (talk) 15:54, 30 December 2011 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Hi again, KConWiki. I've been pretty busy over the past week, but I'd like to be helpful regarding the inclusion of relevant Booknotes links in WP:ELs where they belong, so if you could share an update and let me know where I can offer meaningful input, please let me know. One thought on the controversy: I suppose I could see where not every link works, so perhaps a useful heuristic could be proposed to find compromise and ensure that the best, most relevant Booknotes ELs are accepted. What that might look like, I am not sure, but if there is a way to show the additions are not merely "systematic"—let alone "robotic"—please let me know if I can help. Cheers, WWB Too (talk) 10:38, 30 December 2011 (UTC)

Hi WWB2 - I am pretty much done with adding the Booknotes links. There are some links to BOoknotes.org in existing citations that I have come across that I identified as being dead links (they changed their web addresses a while ago) so I was going to go back and try to clean up some of those so that the citation links are valid. There are some other C-SPAN related items I would like to work on too, but I am going to take a break for a little bit. As for the question of a heuristic of some sort, I would love to be able to demonstrate the value of the links / interviews with some sort of data, but I am also not sure how that could be done. KConWiki (talk) 16:04, 30 December 2011 (UTC)

stub-sorting[edit]

Well done for your blitz on Category:Stubs! I've finished the job, so the category is empty for the first time since the December stub-creation-fest. I've found it pretty dispiriting looking at the category recently as there were so many dreadfully poor stubs and I find I can't just stub-sort and move on but feel the need to improve them too. But I kept picking out interesting-looking ones (eg ones which clearly needed a DEFAULTSORT, or with a disambiguation to check whether they were accessible from the base name), and started cleaning them up from Z backwards recently. PamD 10:02, 8 January 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for saying so - I had noticed the backlog getting bigger and bigger too and I had been meaning to do something about it. This is the type of thing that I can do while I watch a movie at my desk, so I figured I would just dig in and see how far I got. Some of them seem destined for merging or deleting, but I'll let someone else worry about that. KConWiki (talk) 14:05, 8 January 2012 (UTC)

I see you've had another blitz: I'd become dispirited by that mass of boring little stubs, which I think are actually positively unhelpful because they provide less information than the county listings of NRHP sites! But don't forget that we ought to add as specific a stub or stubs as we can: the few that I did of that batch (working up from the end of the alphabet), I added {{Idaho-NRHP-stub}} as well as {{Idaho-struct-stub}}.

I also tend to add other things I notice while I'm on the page - in these cases {{unref}} at the top, and {{coord missing|Idaho}}, and ", United States," to give geographical context in the lead sentence.

There were such a batch of these that I was wondering if I could do something with AWB to work through them all. Meanwhile I just picked out the other stubs to stub-sort etc today. So thanks for disposing of all those Idaho NRHP stubs, but do remember to look out for specific relevant stub tags, especially if there's a batch of stubs with a lot in common like that lot. Best wishes, PamD 18:09, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

Ah, I didn't even realize that there were state-specific NRHP stubs. I will keep that in mind for the future. KConWiki (talk) 18:35, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

JUst a note-- the book is not a biography (faulty hook) and plagiarism was found. SandyGeorgia (Talk) 01:16, 5 February 2012 (UTC)
I am trying to get someone to tell me the specifics of this plagiarism allegation - If I wrote something that is similar to something that someone else wrote, it was purely unintentional. I would like to get this question resolved. As for the biography question, I will go along with the idea that it might be better to call it a history that has King as its central figure - But, I do not think it is outlandish to refer to the biographical aspects of it - Here is a Google search for "King Biographer Branch" that demonstrates that Branch is commonly referred to as King's biographer.

C-SPAN user award

Hello, KConWiki. First thing, on behalf of C-SPAN, please accept this barnstar-inspired award I've created as of today. Thanks for your contributions related to C-SPAN, and I look forward to seeing your work in the future.

Second, you might be interested in a project I've just posted on the Reward Board: the C-SPAN linking project I first mentioned to you last fall. Since then I've reconceived it sightly. In its current design, I'm looking for editor assistance adding External links already suggested by the {{C-SPAN}} and {{CongLinks}} templates. Rewards include the attached award—of which you're the first recipient—and C-SPAN hats, available to participants with a U.S. address.

Let me know if you have any thoughts on it, and I should have some feedback on your recent C-SPAN articles soon. Cheers, WWB Too (talk) 19:43, 8 February 2012 (UTC)

Thanks! I will display this proudly! I am going to wrap up some details about Amer. Presidents, Amer.

Brian Lamb[edit]

Hey there, KConWiki. I mentioned to you a few weeks back that I was working on some additional C-SPAN articles, including a proposed expansion of the Brian Lamb article. I recently posted a request at the Paid Editor Help page of WikiProject Cooperation (and on Lamb's article) and was starting to get somewhere before two participating editors disagreed on the merits of my draft, and now it's ground to a halt. If you have the time or inclination to look in and offer your opinion, it would be very welcome. Cheers, WWB Too (talk) 17:14, 27 February 2012 (UTC)

Feedback on Lincoln-Douglas debate reenactments[edit]

Hi there, I wanted to share back that I shared your new articles with C-SPAN as promised. Overall, a very positive response. Great work. There is one thing they did point out to me, about The Lincoln-Douglas Debates (1994 reenactments): in the first sentence, your version says they were "sponsored" by C-SPAN, but they've advised me this is not so. C-SPAN encouraged the cities involved to hold the debates, promising to air them, but did not produce the debates. I do have a source to verify this, but it's not available (for free) online. Via Lexis-Nexis, I found a February 28, 1994 St. Louis Post-Dispatch article, by Doug Pokorski, titled Debates 'Lincoln, Douglas' Set for Cable TV:

"The local communities are in charge of producing the debates," [C-SPAN spokeswoman Rayne] Pollack said. "We're not setting up our own event and then covering it. All we have asked for is that they use the most complete transcript and perform it in its entirety. Our goal is for it to appear as if C-SPAN was actually there in 1858."

If you're OK following a (sort of) offline source, I'd suggest "encouraged" would be a more accurate phrasing. What do you think?

Also, one more thought, entirely my own: should the article title include the definite article? I realize the book inspiring the series uses it, though based on my own perusal of C-SPAN's Video Library here, for instance it seems they do not. Cheers, WWB Too (talk) 13:35, 2 March 2012 (UTC)

OK - I got rid of the word "sponsored' from the opening sentence. I suppose I used that word in an inexact sense; "encouraged" or maybe "facilitated" might have been better words. But I am just omitting it without replacement, at least for the time being. I have an article from the Baltimore Sun that says something similar: "Spurred on by its own 15th anniversary, C-Span officials approached the mayors of all seven cities last year. Re-create your debates, they said, using local talent and local money, and we'll come in and broadcast them, as though we'd been there in 1858... ...All seven mayors agreed, the state of Illinois chipped in $20,000 for each site and C-Span spent $300,000 to $500,000 promoting the debates, providing staff people to coordinate the coverage and putting together educational materials. The Lincoln-Douglas debates were on their way back to center stage." KConWiki (talk) 02:36, 3 March 2012 (UTC)
As for the "The", I don't know if there is a right answer or not, and if we have just established that C-SPAN did not sponsor the event, then the exact usage in the Video Archive site's segment titles would not be authoritative. Not only that, but check out this poster for a leading article. I think I am going to wait for someone with a stronger opinion on the matter than I have to come along and address this. KConWiki (talk) 02:43, 3 March 2012 (UTC)
Apologies for the slow reply here: looks fine now with "sponsored" removed; one of your replacement words I think would be a lot better. Regarding "The" you raise a fair point; this may be one of those situations where a definitive title was never properly settled, in which case what you have is fine. By the way, have you had a chance to look at my new Brian Lamb draft, mentioned above? I'm looking for a clearer expression of consensus to move it; I thought we were getting close, and then conversation just slowed. Hope you can find a moment to weigh in. Cheers, WWB Too (talk) 14:09, 6 March 2012 (UTC)
Oh wait, never mind! The Brian Lamb article was in fact moved overnight, and I'd just failed to notice. I've actually got a draft for one more C-SPAN person in the wings, Robert X Browning, but I'll only check back if I get stuck there, too. Cheers, WWB Too (talk) 14:27, 6 March 2012 (UTC)
Sorry I didn't comment on your Lamb article sooner, I think it looks real good. Let me know if you need anything about the Browning one too, but I have kind of come to the realization that I would rather (and this is just me, you know) work first on building pages for their shows and specials (and I am trying to think how best to do one for the School Bus(es)) and also on adding SPAN links to the pages for the authors/books/sites/topics seen in their programming before turning to the pages for the individuals associated with C-SPAN. This is despite the fact that Lamb is one of my all-time heroes. Like, I am sure that Susan Swain deserves a page (or to put it better, Wikipedia deserves to have a page about her) but I am not putting that at the top of my to-do list; Partly because the Spanners like to keep (as you know) a low-profile in terms of not promoting their own selves on air. That being said, I am sure that Susan Swain, Rob Kennedy, and others ought to one day have their own pages. KConWiki (talk) 02:06, 7 March 2012 (UTC)

Piping category listings[edit]

KConWiki -- I've seen you've piped numerous categories. For the life of me, I can't figure out what the piped names do. They show up on the page under the original name and link to the original categories. (E.g., I don't see any differences at all.) Can you enlighten me please? Thanks.--S. Rich (talk) 03:45, 8 June 2012 (UTC)

Sure - They make them alpha-sort to the piped phrase in the given category. This is handy if you have one article with several categories, and you don't want it to alpha-sort the same way for each of them. For instance, I just got done adding some categories to articles about the histories of different universities. In the example (below) of History of Texas Tech University, I added the category History of Texas and piped it to alpha sort under "T". This is appropriate in that category because otherwise you could conceivably have a dozen Texas-related articles that start with the word "History" that would clog up the "H" section of that category listing. Same goes for the category Category:History of United States colleges and universities, because practically every article in the category would sort under "H". However, in the category Category:Texas Tech University, it is appropriate to allow it to sort to the "H" section, because "History of" is the aspect of Texas Tech that the article is about.

[[Category:Texas Tech University]]
[[Category:History of United States colleges and universities|Texas Tech University]]
[[Category:History of Texas|Texas Tech University]]

Let me know if I can comment further.

February update from WikiProject Gerald Ford[edit]

Thanks for joining WikiProject Gerald Ford!
A red and white "WIN" button from President Gerald R. Ford's 1974 "Whip Inflation Now" economic initiative.jpg

Now that the project has more or less completed the start-up, assessment, and tagging phases, we're really getting going now. If you're interested, there are a few things you can do:

  1. There is a new article on the Vladivostok Summit in our new Peer Review section that could use a look-over before it goes live in the main article space.
  2. There are a number of documents to be transcribed and proofread on Wikisource: currently, we've only scratched the surface on this one and there is more than plenty for everyone who wants to chip in.
Thank you again for becoming a member of the WikiProject. Take care! Michael Barera (talk) 02:08, 22 February 2013 (UTC)

Bringing C-SPAN up-to-date[edit]

Hi there, KConWiki. I hope you've been well—it's been awhile! Earlier this week I proposed some updates to the main C-SPAN article, and since I want to be careful about COI, I'm wondering if you're willing to make the changes. Principally, the article has not yet been updated to reflect that Brian Lamb stepped down from the CEO position. If you have a few minutes to review my request on the C-SPAN Talk page I'd be very appreciative. The changes are very simple but, same as before, C-SPAN is a client so I won't be making any edits myself. Cheers, WWB Too (Talk · COI) 14:38, 1 March 2013 (UTC)

Hi again, you seem to be busy with other things, but I wanted to let you know that a) another editor already followed up this request, and b) I have a couple of additional suggestions. One involves the notion of creating a List of C-SPAN programs article. Would love to have your input there, if you're so inclined. Cheers, WWB Too (Talk · COI) 13:19, 12 March 2013 (UTC)

WikiProject C-SPAN + more[edit]

Hi there, KConWiki, thanks for the note on my page about your wikiproject idea. Assuming you find critical mass to start one, I'd be happy to serve as a liaison to C-SPAN. Another editor you should check in with is User:Smallbones; I've helped him find C-SPAN videos on arts-related subjects for inclusion in articles recently. Anything I could do to help right now?

Meanwhile, I've posted some update requests today, including one on the C-SPAN Bus program article (request here), and again on the flagship C-SPAN page (request here). As usual, I avoid direct-editing pages where I have a financial relationship, so let me know if you can take a look. Cheers, WWB Too (Talk · COI) 18:46, 25 March 2013 (UTC)

Hi[edit]

I saw your posts about the hoopla on Wadewitz's page. Thought you might be interested in this: Wikipedia_talk:Category_intersection#A_working_category_intersection_today. Please leave comments/feedback there - I welcome any ideas you might have to improve. Test out the prototype, let me know how you feel about it - does it get close to what you were asking for? --Obi-Wan Kenobi (talk) 21:59, 7 May 2013 (UTC)

I'm pleased that the Hoopla is stirring up discussions of this sort. I will poke around on that Category page and see what sorts of things I can find. I don't know exactly what I have in mind, btw, but it is exciting to see a variety of categorization proposals being kicked around. KConWiki (talk) 03:41, 8 May 2013 (UTC)

Help with Basbanes page[edit]

Hi. Thanks for your kind words and fine-tuning to help make the Nicholas Basbanes page better. It was my first effort and I appreciate the hand of a more experienced Wikipedia editor in making it a better, more useful article. Dnikkir (talk) 14:14, 8 June 2013 (UTC)

(Posting this on both my user page and yours...) You bet - I have now linked all the Basbanes mentions or citations I could find from other WP articles to the newly created Nicholas Basbanes article, so that its incoming links look like this. This is in keeping with the philosophies of Wikipedia:Build the web and Wikipedia:Walled garden. Also - If you need any input on any of your future WP endeavors, please feel free to let me know. KConWiki (talk) 17:39, 8 June 2013 (UTC)

Thanks very much. The article is very much improved by your work today. Dnikkir (talk) 18:01, 8 June 2013 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of One True Vine[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on One True Vine requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A9 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a musical recording which does not indicate why its subject is important or significant, and where the artist's article has never existed, has been deleted or is eligible for deletion itself. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for music.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, you can place a request here. buffbills7701 02:16, 23 June 2013 (UTC)

Category intersection[edit]

Is getting better. Magnus Manske (developer) has developed a super-fast category intersection, and a javascript that will bring it into a wikipedia page. If you want to try it out, add the following line to your common.js page: importScript('User:Obiwankenobi/intercat.js');

Then restart your browser, and visit Category:Wikipedia_categorization_intersect_test. You can click on the intersects up top, and it will display all articles that meet the criteria (e.g. American novelists who are LGBT and African American or whatever). This is still very early prototype stage, but since you were interested I wanted to share and get your feedback. --Obi-Wan Kenobi (talk) 02:22, 23 June 2013 (UTC)

Well, thanks for thinking of me. I checked it out a little bit and I think you should show it around to others for comment as well. Using an example I had given previously, I went here and was trying to get the intersect of Category:People from Virginia and Category:Presidents of the United States, but no luck. Are those categories too far removed from the articles? (i.e., Thomas Jefferson is a member of Category:People from Albemarle County, Virginia, rather than Category:People from Virginia.) KConWiki (talk) 04:10, 24 June 2013 (UTC)
Tried it again with Category:Presidents of the United States and Category:United States Secretaries of State, still no luck. Am I doing something wrong? (Or had you only intended to test the writers categories?) KConWiki (talk) 04:18, 24 June 2013 (UTC)
Like this? Beware, when you do intersections, you sometimes get odd results. For example, when I was testing it, there were a bunch of black authors showing up as jewish novelists, and i couldn't figure out why. It was because the Guggenheims were under Category:American Jews, and guggehheim fellows were under Guggenheim, so anyone who won a Guggenheim fellowship now became a jewish novelist.--Obi-Wan Kenobi (talk) 04:24, 24 June 2013 (UTC)
that category is weird. For example, under Category:George W. Bush, you have Category:Iraq_War_casualities, so if there was some soldier from Virginia, he would appear to be a president from Virginia. When we use category intersection, we need to understand what is in the categories - and in the case of presidents, things that happened DURING their presidency are listed there. One way to limit this is to scope the recursion so it doesn't search deeper than 1 level for the presidents cat, for example.--Obi-Wan Kenobi (talk) 04:30, 24 June 2013 (UTC)

C-SPAN at FAC[edit]

Hi KConWiki, I hope all is well. It's been awhile since I've posted a message with you, and somewhat longer still since you'd replied to one, so perhaps your interest in C-SPAN has waned, but I still wanted to let you know that I've submitted the C-SPAN article for review at WP:FAC. If you'd like to review the article and contribute to the discussion you'll find it on the FAC page here. Cheers, WWB Too (Talk · COI) 20:48, 26 August 2013 (UTC)

Hello - I'm sorry for not responding promptly, and my interest in C-SPAN's presence in WP certainly has not waned. I have been keeping an eye on the CSPAN Good Article / FAC activity, and I am quite appreciative of the work that went into it, and I definitely hope that it will be a successful candidate to be a featured article. I will take a look at the FAC page and see if there is anything that I can contribute. (Or if there is anything more I can contribute to the article itself.) The reason that I didn't jump on this is that I tend to make a lot of incremental edits to various types of articles, and I often go off on whatever tangent I find myself going on. Believe it or not, many of the tangents are shaped by aspects of my C-SPAN viewing over the years. For instance, one of the things I have been working on is creating links within the bibliographies of individual articles for authors whose works have been cited in the creation of those articles, and many of the authors whom I link are people whom I have become familiar with through C-SPAN viewing. For instance, I first became familiar with Stephen B. Oates from the Lincoln-Douglas Debates, Booknotes, and other Lincoln and Civil War programming on C-SPAN in the 90s, and recently I went through and made a bunch of links like this one to connect his article with those of some of the topics that he wrote about. I often do that rather than go after the big fish. However, as I said, it would obviously be an event of some significance to get the main C-SPAN article into Featured Article Status, so I will take a look and see what I can contribute. Thanks KConWiki (talk) 23:44, 2 September 2013 (UTC)
OK - I've made a number of edits to the article, and left a couple of questions/comments on the FAC page. I have a few more things I want to poke around with about this in the next few days. Thanks KConWiki (talk) 05:09, 3 September 2013 (UTC)
Hi KConWiki. Thanks for taking the time to look over the article. Your changes all look good, I really appreciate you adding in the wikilinks that you did. I've responded to your comments on the FAC page as well. Cheers, WWB Too (Talk · COI) 21:03, 4 September 2013 (UTC)
Hi again! As of right now the discussion on the FAC page has no votes one way or the other, so I'm following up with the few editors who have been involved so far. Would you be comfortable voting in favor of this being a FA at this point or are there more changes you feel need to be made?
Also, if there is anywhere you think I should try reaching out to find interested editors, I'm very open to suggestions. So far I have left messages at WikiProject Television, WikiProject Journalism and WikiProject District of Columbia, as well as with the two editors who helped with the Peer review.
I think I'm going to need more reviews and votes to complete the FA process, so any input you have would be appreciated. Cheers, WWB Too (Talk · COI) 12:54, 24 September 2013 (UTC)
I want to take another pass at the article itself this weekend. As for other reviewers, let me think about where we might be able to find interested parties... KConWiki (talk) 03:58, 25 September 2013 (UTC)

Recent edits to Brian Lamb[edit]

Hi KConWiki! I'm not sure if our paths have crossed before so I'd like to introduce myself: my name is Rhiannon and I work with User:WWB Too. I've been helping him out a bit with his work for C-SPAN and am hoping you might have the time to review a message I posted on the Brian Lamb Talk page. As WWB Too does, I also avoid direct edits, so I'm looking for an editor to take a look at a couple of issues and make what changes are needed. I'd hoped to follow up with a user who had helped me with some other edits to the page earlier this year (User:ProliferatingJade), however they have not been active on Wikipedia since April, so hopefully you don't mind me asking you instead.

My request addresses a couple of recent edits to Lamb's article. One edit added a very minor award Lamb received and is pretty clearly the work of an intern for the organization that gives the award. The second edit was a slight alteration to the introduction to refer to Lamb as a "businessman", which I don't feel is the most accurate way to introduce him. I've explained these issues in more detail on the Talk page. If you have the time to look at this I'd really appreciate it. Thanks, 16912 Rhiannon (Talk · COI) 22:57, 12 September 2013 (UTC)

Hello - I will try to take a look at this over the weekend. Thanks KConWiki (talk) 04:15, 13 September 2013 (UTC)
Thanks so much! 16912 Rhiannon (Talk · COI) 12:41, 13 September 2013 (UTC)
And I really should have checked the article Talk before replying here... Another editor has taken a look and made the edits I'd requested. Thanks for your offer of help, though and hope you have a lovely weekend. 16912 Rhiannon (Talk · COI) 12:51, 13 September 2013 (UTC)

First Ladies[edit]

Great to see somebody else interested inFirst Ladies and C-SPAN in general. I think I just got up to about Mrs. Quincy Adams, and then had to wait for more, so it's been mostly miss and hit since. I will recommend that you use the external video link - which I think is about the only way to display a non-profit 1st rate external video on Wikipedia.

If at all possible, please use the external video template:

{{external media | width = 210px | align = right | headerimage=[[File:DolleyMadisonbyPeale.jpg|210px]] | video1 = [http://www.c-spanvideo.org/program/310726-1&showFullAbstract=1 First Lady Dolley Madison], [[C-SPAN|C‑SPAN]] <ref name="cspan a">{{cite web | title =First Lady Dolley Madison | work = | publisher =[[C-SPAN|C‑SPAN]] | date =March 11, 2013 | url =http://www.c-spanvideo.org/program/310726-1&showFullAbstract=1 | accessdate =March 12, 2013 }}</ref> }}


All you need to change is the headerimage, the link to the video (twice), title, (airing) date, and access date.

You do not need a header image (just leave it out) but there are usually many images available on Commons that are similar to those shown in the video. The reference is really needed only for the access date, and some people prefer to leave it out entirely.

This template should *not* be placed in the external links section according to WP:External links, but rather where it best relates to the text. That said some folks labor under the delusion that it must be under external links, so a video that is not specifically referred to in the text should probably be fairly low in the article.

Add as much as you want, I'll be busy with other things for at least a month. Smallbones(smalltalk) 20:40, 22 September 2013 (UTC)

OK, let me see what I can do about all this... KConWiki (talk) 03:14, 23 September 2013 (UTC)

C-SPAN FAC archived[edit]

Hi KConWiki, I wanted to let you know that my submission at FAC has been archived. I believe you and I had resolved all of the comments you raised on the FAC Talk page, but if you have any additional comments or concerns you'd like to address please feel free to share them. I've moved the outstanding parts of the FAC discussion over to the C-SPAN Talk page and hope to resolve these issues there as I plan to resubmit in a few weeks. If you have any additional comments please leave them at Talk:C-SPAN as well.

If you don't have any additional feedback to give, is it OK for me to reach out to you once I've resubmitted? Would you be willing to vote in favor of promoting the article then? Cheers, WWB Too (Talk · COI) 22:28, 10 October 2013 (UTC)

In tribute...[edit]

Great idea to focus on tribute album categorisation, it's long overdue. I'm still not sure of some of the albums are tribute albums or single composer collections...a distinction that seems far easier to make with albums of classical music, in my opinion. I'll let it slide, though, and follow your lead. Keep up your great work. I've created a Gershwin category, btw. Gareth E Kegg (talk) 18:16, 12 November 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for saying so - Gershwin was soon to come on my list. The whole thing is a work in progress, of course, and the "Tribute" label does have a nebulous aspect to it, but I am hoping to help interested readers find albums they are interested in more easily. LMK if any other comments or observations. KConWiki (talk) 02:14, 13 November 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link fixing one-day contest[edit]

I have decided to put on a mini-contest within the November 2013 monthly disambiguation contest, on Saturday, November 23 (UTC). I will personally give a $20 Amazon.com gift card to the disambiguator who fixes the most links on that server-day (see the project page for details on scoring points). Since we are not geared up to do an automated count for that day, at 00:00, 23 November 2013 (UTC) (which is 7:00 PM on November 22, EST), I'll take a screenshot of the project page leaderboard. I will presume that anyone who is not already listed on the leaderboard has precisely nine edits. At 01:00, 24 November 2013 (UTC) (8:00 PM on November 23, EST), I'll take a screenshot of the leaderboard at that time (the extra hour is to give the board time to update), and I will determine from that who our winner is. I will credit links fixed by turning a WP:DABCONCEPT page into an article, but you'll have to let me know me that you did so. Here's to a fun contest. Note that according to the Daily Disambig, we currently have under 256,000 disambiguation links to be fixed. If everyone in the disambiguation link fixers category were to fix 500 links, we would have them all done - so aim high! Cheers! bd2412 T 02:34, 18 November 2013 (UTC)

Help with Nicholas Basbanes page[edit]

Hi,

You suggested that I could come to you if I needed help. Well. I need it now.

I found this cool thing on Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F42tcvvV_pA

A lecture -- "Nicholas Basbanes on the Strange and Fascinating History of People and Paper" posted by the Strand Bookstore in NY on November 14, 2013.

It's quite nice and might be helpful to people, but I don't know if something on dirty old Youtube is an okay thing to post.

Do you know?

Thanks. Dnikkir (talk) 19:41, 25 November 2013 (UTC)

Hi there - I watched just a minute of the YouTube clip (I will plan on watching the rest later) and it seems like it could be appropriate for inclusion in WP in one way or another. The fact that it was a talk given at the Strand, and that it is on the Strand's YouTube channel gives it some legitimacy. However - The External Links section(s) are pretty packed - They take up almost half the article. It might be better to trim some of those out, or incorporate them into other articles, either as external links or as references. Or, sometimes what I do on articles I am working on is start a section on the talk page where I just park links for potential future use.
I hate to do anything that would get rid of anything that added value to WP (I am an inclusionist) but at the same time We (I mean the collective "We" of WP editors) should be sensitive to guidelines at Wikipedia:External links.
I am heading out of town for the holidays soon, but when I return, I will try to see if I can help with some of that. In the meantime, I would say go ahead and add the link, just so as to not lose track of it. KConWiki (talk) 14:44, 26 November 2013 (UTC)

Thanks very much. I'll post it now to save it. I appreciate your help. Dnikkir (talk) 16:01, 26 November 2013 (UTC)

C-SPAN back at FAC[edit]

Hi KConWiki, I'm not sure how closely you've been watching the C-SPAN article but I was able to find help to make the last few minor updates to the page that I felt needed to be done before resubmitting to FAC.

If you're interested and available to give the article one final review, it would be greatly appreciated. If everything checks out, I hope you'll be able to voice your support for FA status. The discussion on the FAC page can be found here. Cheers, WWB Too (Talk · COI) 18:28, 3 December 2013 (UTC)

Well, shoot. The FAC was closed this morning due to inactivity; no big surprise, since the holidays and travel got in the way of my efforts to update the references. Anyway, I just wanted to say thanks for the support, and I hope you'll be willing to lend your voice again in the future. If you'd even be willing to help me update the references once I've completely re-checked them, that would be awesome as well. Best, WWB Too (Talk · COI) 14:03, 30 December 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for July 11[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help.
