Template:FascismProject[edit]

Hi. I notice that you've recently added {{FascismProject}} to some articles. That template is actually intended for talk pages, not the articles themselves. I've moved the template from White nationalism to Talk:White nationalism; you might want to do the same for the other articles. Cheers, CWC(talk) 15:24, 23 August 2006 (UTC)

Hello again. I've just removed the template from Socialist Reich Party and Otto Ernst Remer. Thanks for your contributions. CWC(talk) 23:55, 24 August 2006 (UTC)

Valley of the Minotaur may be deleted[edit]

Just a reminder: at the moment Valley of the Minotaur lacks any citations or other evidence of notability. Absent third party evidence that the game existed, the article could be challenged and deleted. While Wikipedia:Notability (fiction) isn't official, it's none-the-less likely to be the standard the article would be held to. Good luck! — Alan De Smet | Talk 03:00, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

James Garner[edit]

Howdy. I know that it has been a few days, but do you have a reference for this:

"Prior to the entry of ex-San Fracisco Mayor (later U.S. Senator) Dianne Feinstein, there was an effort by party leaders to persuade James Garner to seek the 1990 Democratic nomination for Governor of California."

I am trying to clean up cite tags.

GARNER ASKED TO RUN FOR GOVERNOR - BUT ACTOR DECLINES TO FOLLOW IN REAGAN'S PATH

Daily News of Los Angeles (CA) - July 25, 1989 Author: PATRICK McGREEVY Daily News Staff Writer

Forget John Van De Kamp and Dianne Feinstein - for the Democrats to win next year's governor's race against Sen. Pete Wilson, they need a guy like actor James Garner , says state Sen. Herschel Rosenthal.

Rosenthal, D-Los Angeles, said Monday that he is so convinced that his party's gubernatorial hopefuls cannot win that he attempted to recruit former Rockford Files" star and beef spokesman James Garner .

"He said, 'I'm making $6 million dollars a year, what do I need that for?' or words to that effect," Rosenthal recalled.

Garner was not available for comment, but his publicist, Pat Kingsley, said that the actor didn't feel comfortable cast in the role of politician.

"It is true, in fact, he was approached, but he declined," Kingsley said. "He doesn't feel politics is the right field for him."

Rosenthal said during a lunch with Daily News reporters and editors Monday that actor was approached because his face is familiar to millions of television viewers who saw him in shows, including "The Rockford Files" and the western series "Maverick."

Noting that Garner looked good on a horse, Rosenthal admitted taking a note from the playbook of the Republicans, who successfully ran a cowboy-actor named Ronald Reagan for governor in 1967.

"Everybody knows him," the senator said of Garner, who has been active in various environmental causes in the past.

Rosenthal said he launched his search for a "non-politician" candidate representing the Democratic Party after he concluded that neither Attorney General John Van de Kamp nor former San Francisco Mayor Dianne Feinstein can beat Republican U.S. Sen. Pete Wilson for governor next year.

Most polls show Feinstein and Van de Kamp as the top two candidates for the Democratic primary election next June.

"This state will elect blacks for mayor and women for secretary (of state) but it's not going to elect either one of them for governor," Rosenthal said regarding Feinstein's candidacy.

Rosenthal was equally blunt about Van de Kamp's chances.

"In my opinion, Van de Kamp can't win. He doesn't get anybody excited. You can fall asleep listening to him," said Rosenthal, a 15-year veteran of state office.

A third potential Democratic candidate, State Controller Gray Davis, will decide against running for governor based on his low standing in the polls, Rosenthal predicted.

The senator also said the public is put to sleep by the leading Republican candidate for governor, U.S. Senator Pete Wilson.

WikiProject: Dungeons & Dragons[edit]

Hi! I’ve been working on a lot of ‘’Dungeons & Dragons’’ articles lately and saw that you were a member of WikiProject Dungeons & Dragons), and am inviting you to rejoin Wikipedia’s D&D group. I've been hard at work removing tags placed inappropriately on D&D articles, as well as modifying articles to remove tags that were placed legitimately. In addition, I have been compiling related articles together so that the articles are longer, making it easier to remove tags and to have short articles on lesser topics by just putting it into another appropriate article (links to such compiled articles can be found on my userpage). Check out the project here , and ask any questions that you may have here. Thank you for your time. Drilnoth (talk) 20:48, 7 November 2008 (UTC)

ADT template[edit]

Nice template, thanks. Here's a question - if Ted Kaczynski is included, shouldn't George Metesky be on it somewhere as well? Not sure how, maybe generalize the Unabomber tag a bit more? Cheers, CliffC (talk) 15:19, 16 January 2009 (UTC)

Have to disagree that this is a nice template, I think it's harmful and probably needs to be deleted. Your inclusions are rather arbitrary, and I'd appreciate it if you stopped templating a ton of articles with this thing. Many of the people you have included in this are alive and utterly dispute the notion that they are "terrorists." We have strict rules for how we deal with articles about living people and this template opens us to some serious problems in that respect. For example Ashanti Alston was convicted of armed robbery, not terrorism, and the article about him mentions nothing about terrorism whatsoever. The article claims he "is a widely sought after speaker and lecturer on the left," and now anyone who goes to read about him before booking him as a speaker will see him as associated with terrorism. He'd have pretty good cause to sue Wikipedia for that, and obviously this is not a trivial issue for someone like him or for Wikipedia.
At the very least please stop adding this template, and I'd appreciate it if you removed it from biographies of living people for the time being. You should not so lightly label people "terrorist" on one of the most widely read sites on the internet, particularly since the word "terrorist" is so heavily disputed. I think I'm going to put this template up for deletion so we can discuss this more at that point, but I don't want you to do any more damage in the mean time.--Bigtimepeace | talk | contribs 17:40, 16 January 2009 (UTC)
Ashanti Alston was a member of the Black Liberation Army, which was a terrorist organization (I wonder if the term "guerrilla" might not describe it more accurately, but be that as it may, our society no longer chooses to make much of a distinction between "guerrillas" and "terrorists"). And he committed one or more violent felonies (armed robbery) in service to its agenda. For that matter, even an entirely peaceful member of a terrorist organization is still, within the context of his or her activities in support of that organization, operating to promote terrorism, and thus can be reasonably construed as "a terrorist."
I understand that many leftist terrorists from the 1960s and 70s have been designated as rehabilitated, and allowed to operate within polite society much as if they never did anything wrong (this is of course true ONLY of those who had the good fortune to be on the left, rather than the right), and that the friends & supporters of such ex-terrorists do not care to have the terrorist past of such persons brought up in the present context. Never-the-less, this is an encyclopedia, and encyclopedias are not ideally supposed to be in the business of whitewashing history. Interestingly, the only criminal activities member of the Aryan Republican Army were ever formally accused of were the armed robbery of 22 banks, yet their status as "terrorists" is probably never going to be in dispute by either of us, or much of anyone else. But certain individuals who engaged in terrorism during the 60s and 70s are now regarded as essentially well-intentioned, and thus it is seen as unfair to note the reality of what they did. The basis upon which such a line of reasoning can be brought into conformity with a NPOV policy, however, remains elusive. KevinOKeeffe (talk) 22:26, 16 January 2009 (UTC)
Just for the record and to avoid too much side chatter at the TfD debate, this has nothing to do with politics. I watchlist the Mark Rudd page so I first noted the template there, but I don't think any of these groups or individuals should have a template like this. While my politics are very much of the left and while I'm pretty damn far from being a racist much less a white supremacist, believe it or not I don't think the Aryan Republican Army should be labeled "terrorist" in their articles (thus I changed that), again per the guideline at WP:TERRORIST. I'm not sure you've thought through all the implications of being so cavalier about labeling living people terrorists on a web site as widely read as this one. We have to be very, very careful about this kind of thing which is why BLP is such an endlessly debated issue (some have gone so far as to propose deleting all biographical articles of living people to avoid possible legal trouble, though I completely disagree with that). We don't whitewash the truth at Wikipedia, obviously, but we also have NPOV as a core policy and thus avoid intrinsically non-neutral and loaded words like "terrorist," especially on bio articles. Finally, your suggestion that "our society no longer chooses to make much of a distinction between "guerrillas" and "terrorists" struck me as a a bit odd and, quite simply, incorrect. --Bigtimepeace | talk | contribs 01:21, 17 January 2009 (UTC)

I was on my way here to basically say the same thing. I had no connection to this article whatsoever, and as far as I can remember, no connection to you whatsoever. The unsolicited advertising for people to come !vote on an article is indeed canvassing. Trusilver 02:11, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

Your uploads[edit]

Good day. I see that you have uploaded a number of images to Wikipedia. First off, thank you for your contributions. Unfortunately, there are some guidelines that we need to follow with copyrighted images. Specifically, you need to add a source for the image (a link to a website will do), a copyright tag (there are some listed at WP:ICT), and a rationale explaining why we can use a copyrighted image (explained at WP:NFURG). I see that your images fail to include one of these. Please stop uploading images and address the concerns listed above. If you need assistance, you can ask at the help desk. If you do not fix these images, and you continue to make bad uploads, you will be blocked and your images will be deleted. Thanks for your contributions! STBotI (talk) 03:21, 26 March 2009 (UTC)

The format of this interview will be question-answer style whereby interested members of the community will pose questions to one or all of the candidates involved. If you would like any further information about the process or Skype, please contact Durova or myself on the English Wikipedia. Please be advised that spaces are limited and the sign up page can be found here. We look forward to your attendence at this event. Cheers   «l| Promethean ™|l»  (talk) 05:48, 18 July 2009 (UTC)

WMF program spending[edit]

Just as a clarification regarding your comments on your board questions page. Gregory Kohs has a longstanding history of making false and misleading claims about the Wikimedia Foundation, and we generally don't regard it as productive to engage with him directly as he will simply bait-and-switch from one claim to the next. But since you seem to have been persuaded of the belief that the Wikimedia Foundation spends 31.6% of its expenditures on program services, I wanted to quickly correct the record.

Gregory is actually making a claim deliberately designed to confuse and mislead. He is not counting program service spending against expenditures, he is counting it against revenue. In the fiscal year covered by the Form 990 in question, we counted a three-year $3 million grant commitment of the Sloan Foundation, and we also underspent against our original budget, so revenue is much higher than expenses. The ratio of program spending against all spending is 66.3%.

Moreover, these metrics are highly controversial, and most non-profits provide highly questionable reporting to the IRS on what constitutes "overhead" spending. See Nonprofit Overhead Costs: Breaking the Vicious Cycle of Misleading Reporting, Unrealistic Expectations, and Pressure to Conform by The Bridgespan Group.

By the way, I would also invite you to consult the 2009-10 Annual Plan to get an inside view on how the revenue targets for this fiscal year are constructed. The Q & A may also be helpful.

If you have any questions regarding the above, feel free to contact me on my talk page or via e-mail at erik(at)wikimedia(dot)org.--Eloquence* 18:36, 20 July 2009 (UTC)

You pull out everything in the article that could be construed as a source as they were dead links, then you turn around and prod it? That's what I call bad faith. Better would have been to tag the dead links with {{deadlink}}, then prod it. That way the folks reviewing the prod can see everything and decide then if it should be deleted.

A note that articles that have gone through a previous Afd are not eligible for proposed deletions.

Greater Portugal[edit]

The meme Great X may have played that role in European nationalism, but do you have a source for Portugal? And besides, when similar expressions were used, they did not refer to the union of Portugal and Galicia, as stated in the article, but to the whole of the Portuguese Empire. The article remains unsourced and I consider it to be OR. The Ogre (talk) 15:16, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

Semen & its functions other than conception[edit]

Kevin: As a responsible editor, it is incumbent on you to examine the facts before you dismiss content out of hand and arbitrarily expunge it. You have deleted very well-referenced scientific material (semen article) that may also be found on other Wikipedia pages unmolested. Just because something strikes you as "absurd" does not mean that it really is! Study it out please, and you may learn a few things...JGabbard (talk) 14:46, 2 August 2009 (UTC)

In point of fact, some of the alternative uses for semen may actually be medically efficacious. But they aren't really employed in general practice. And I suspect they were noted more as part of a semen fetish, than as part of bona fide research into actual alternative uses to which semen is put. There's a reason you won't find an "alternative uses of semen" section in the Encyclopedia Britanica, and it ain't due to a shortage of paper. KevinOKeeffe (talk) 08:47, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

Kevin: The veracity and relative significance of facts are not predicated upon the suspected motives of those who state them. Also, it may be said that $2 bills "aren't really employed in general practice," but the lack of prevalence of their use in no way impugns their validity as currency. You need to relinquish your personal bias against the subject matter itself. Until such time as you have proven the references and research on each individual point to be bogus, the material should remain unvandalized.JGabbard (talk) 13:53, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

No "vandalism" has taken place. I have simply removed quasi-pornographic, degenerate filth that has no place in an encyclopedia. It should also be noted that I didn't check all your sources, but the ones I saw didn't appear notable. I'm sure most of the others wouldn't as well, since reputable publications seldom publish on such inane and perverse topics as semen ingestion. I think Wikipedia should follow their example, and refuse to include such material here as well. KevinOKeeffe (talk) 13:58, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

Kevin: Your cursory review of references is insufficient grounds for this futile edit war, which is a waste of both your time and mine. Honest and frank discussion, however, can be quite fruitful. However, you must first have something to discuss. Please have an open mind and take some time to consider the material presented in the various references, all of which have passed the test on other Wiki pages. Please understand, I have zero interest in advancing prurient concerns, but only the simple facts of health. —Preceding unsigned comment added by JGabbard (talkcontribs) 20:44, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

I'm not precisely certain what causes you to arrive at such a conclusion, but I would be hesitant to regard it as an accurate characterization, to say the least. If you are referencing my efforts to enforce Wikipedia's own policies with regards to Notability, in so far as articles about minor, trivial adult film performers are concerned, then that is not a freedom of speech issue, but rather as issue about what constitutes an encyclopedia. I won't trouble you with what an encyclopedia is, but rather I will simply note that one of the things an encyclopedia is not, is a compendium of every jot & tiddle about the adult entertainment, ahem, "industry." I think most reasonable people understand that implicitly. KevinOKeeffe (talk) 02:52, 10 August 2009 (UTC)

Your deletion of the article about Maya Ababadjani is a complete mistake.

Speedy deletion nomination of Richard Thacker Morris[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Richard Thacker Morris requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. 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 biographies. You may also wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles - see the Article Wizard.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page 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 page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you.

Hello - For future reference you might want to take a look at this category's current parent cats. I just removed all 6 of the original parent cats that you had given it, because they were all identical (and thus redundant) to the parents for Category:Cryptids -- which is itself the primary parent cat for Category:California cryptids. Strangely, you didn't use that category as a parent cat, but another editor thought to add it. Anyway, I hope this will give you some insight into the proper way to set up parent cats for new categories. Cgingold (talk) 23:22, 19 May 2010 (UTC)

Roosevelt/Teodoro[edit]

Do you have a source giving Rio Téodoro as an official name for the Roosevelt River? The U.S Board of Geographic Names (http://geonames.usgs.gov/) uses Rio Roosevelt and doesn't even list Téodoro as an alternate name. Brazilian government maps all use Rio Roosevelt as well as far as I can tell. I haven't found any map that labels it as Rio Téodoro, even those labeled in Portuguese (though one National Geographic atlas spells it out as Theodore Roosevelt River). Kmusser (talk) 13:37, 9 April 2010 (UTC)

The article (Rio Téodoro) itself claims that "Rio Téodoro" is the official name of the river (and no, I did not add that text to the article myself), and that seemed accurate to me, since on the occasions where I've read about it, "Rio Téodoro" was the only name I'd ever come across for it. Since I didn't actually make the claim that was the correct name (but rather merely normalized the usage across several articles), I didn't have a source for that claim at hand, but perhaps I should try to find one later on today (after I've finished with another article I'm almost through with at present, and then it will be time to sleep). KevinOKeeffe (talk) 13:45, 9 April 2010 (UTC)
Ok, found that was added recently by an anon user, going to leave the same question on their page and the article talk page in the hopes that they see it. If true I'm ok with the renaming, but I'm a little suspicious since it conflicts with Brazilian maps. Kmusser (talk) 15:49, 9 April 2010 (UTC)

Having examined the contents of the Talk page in question, I do not see any evidence for the existence of a consensus in favor of your perspective with respect to the appropriate slant of the National-Anarchism article, hence I shall be inclined to disregard such misleading remarks from you in the future. It clear you're just editing the article the way you personally prefer it to be edited, and were trying to persuade me of a consensus behind your edits, which its very difficult to believe you were being sincere about.

Human Rights Barnstar.png The Human Rights Barnstar
I am often asked, "Does this crop need lime?" I have also heard such statements as "I'm going to lime my yard this year because so and so down the road did his and it looks a whole lot better" or "I'm gonna throw some lime by my tomato plants this year because I've been having trouble with blossom end rot." It frustrates me to hear such statements because the use of lime is such a basic practice to the successful growth of plants, yet it is so often misunderstood. I hope that with the following information, you will gain a better understanding of the purpose of lime and how to use it correctly. Lime Prophet (talk) 15:37, 11 June 2010 (UTC)

You are now a Reviewer[edit]

Wikipedia Reviewer.svg

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, is currently undergoing a two-month trial scheduled to end 15 August 2010.

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under pending changes. Pending changes is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial. The list of articles with pending changes awaiting review is located at Special:OldReviewedPages.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. MBisanz talk 02:16, 20 June 2010 (UTC)

Wikipedia Campus Ambassadors wanted in Troy, Alabama[edit]

Hi! I'm leaving you this message because you're listed as a Wikipedian in Alabama. The Wikipedia Ambassador Program is currently looking for Campus Ambassadors to help with Wikipedia assignments at Troy University, which will be participating in the Public Policy Initiative for the Spring 2011 semester. The role of Campus Ambassadors will be to provide face-to-face training and support for students on Wikipedia-related skills (how to edit articles, how to add references, etc.). This includes doing in-class presentations, running workshops and labs, possibly holding office hours, and in general providing in-person mentorship for students.

Prior Wikipedia skills are not required for the role, as training will be provided for all Campus Ambassadors (although, of course, being an experienced editor is a plus).

I know Alabama is a big state, but if you happen to live near Troy and you are interested in being a Wikipedia Campus Ambassador, or know someone else from Troy who might be, please email me or leave a message on my talk page.--Sage Ross - Online Facilitator, Wikimedia Foundation (talk) 16:08, 6 December 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of American Third Position Party[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 American Third Position Party requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person, organization (band, club, company, etc.) or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. 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.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hang on}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion, or "db", tag; if no such tag exists, then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hang-on tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page 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 page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. Lenerd (talk) 22:06, 23 January 2011 (UTC)

How can one be an anarchist and against statism but at the same time be in support of the state being allowed to decide whether or not people can get married or have abortions?

Doesn't make much sense, especially not coming from an individual claiming to have an IQ of 140. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 80.216.218.247 (talk) 10:28, 26 January 2011 (UTC)

I should think one would scarcely require an IQ of 140 to be able to understand an elementary concept such as, for example, my support for maintaining the authentic definition of marriage (as well as protecting human life in its gestational stage). You know, within the context of the regime that is actually in power today (and likely to remain so for the foreseeable future). KevinOKeeffe (talk) 01:55, 27 January 2011 (UTC)

Well, it depends on how you view it with with regards to marriage. I am not a supporter of forcing a religious group to legalize marrying same-sex couples.

However, I am also not a supporter of a government/state forbidding a faith from marrying same-sex couples if they wish to do so.

If you understand what I mean, English isn't my native language so I sometimes fumble with how to express myself in it.

Compare your citation in further reading to the citation style in the article. Fifelfoo (talk) 01:23, 12 June 2011 (UTC)

I'm quite confident what I have done is correct. If a given external link is associated with both an author and a publication for which there are articles here, it is in keeping with the principle of "building the web," to hyperlink those two respective articles, in accordance with the Manual of Style. There is every advantage in so doing, and your concerns to the effect that this is somehow in apparent conflict with "the citation style in the article," is frankly not relevant, as nothing is being "cited" within the External links section of the article in question.
Wikipedia:Manual_of_Style_(linking)#Principles KevinOKeeffe (talk) 01:58, 12 June 2011 (UTC)
It is a reference to an external object with an author, title, publisher. It should conform to the referencing styles in the article which are clearly Author Title Publisher in terms of ordering. Stop putting the author after the title. Fifelfoo (talk) 08:37, 13 June 2011 (UTC)

This user's unblock request has been reviewed by an administrator, who accepted the request.

KevinOKeeffe (block logactive blocksglobal blocksautoblockscontribsdeleted contribsabuse filter logcreation logchange block settingsunblock)


Request reason:

I'm afraid my account wasn't compromised. I realize what I did was inappropriate and very foolish, but in my defense, I would simply wish to point out that this person has been harassing me all over the internet, for over four years. I simply lost my temper, and behaved in a very unfortunate (and in fairness, uncharacteristic) manner (which I can assure you, most emphatically, is not an event which would occur in the future, were I to be given a second chance).

Within that context, I would like to request that my ban be lifted after a period of one month. I realize that I can't simply expect to receive no sanction for my extremely reckless and stupid behavior, but by the same token, it hardly seems to be in the best interests of Wikipedia for a constructive editor such as myself to be permanently banned, merely because of a single instance* of foolish behavior (and in response to a four-and-a-half-year long campaign of internet-wide harassment, it only seems fair for me to note).

The following "diff" should help to shed some light on why I lost my temper: LINK


Since January of 2005 ie., six-and-a-half years of NOT misbehaving (minus a single instance where I was blocked for 24 hours in August of 2009, due to edit warring).

Accept reason:

(1-month duration accepted) I am amending your block to one month, as per your suggestion in the message above. I would, however, like to take this opportunity to say that it is not simply I who take a dim view of this sort of behaviour. You appear to understand the gravity of your actions and have a history of positive contributions to Wikipedia; this means, therefore, I will assume good faith in this request. I wish to caution you that Wikipedia is no place for this sort of dispute and especially not for homophobia — just as it is not my place as a gay administrator to tell you what I think of your personal views, which you will note that I am not doing. You understand this, and so I hope you will return in a month's time with fresh eyes; and that you will return to contribute positively, as you have to date. --NicholasTurnbull | (talk) 21:21, 26 June 2011 (UTC)

"Roman Porno"[edit]

I see you've moved List of Nikkatsu Roman Porno films, and edited its content, to change the term "Roman Porno" to something else. Changing it to "Roman pornographic" seems to make no sense, as it would seem to imply some relationship with Rome or the Ancient Romans, which I can see no hint of here.

I wonder if the term "Roman Porno" may be the actual Japanese term for this genre of films, perhaps as a contraction of the English words "pornographic romance" thus also possibly explaining the capital letters in the usage of the term? If so, then the use of the term would actually be encyclopedic, and in that case should be left as-is, and a note added to the article to that effect. Can you please investigate this before making any further edits? -- The Anome (talk) 23:54, 24 September 2011 (UTC)

On review: yes, it's a literal quotation of a Japanese term: see Roman_Porno#Second wave (The Nikkatsu Roman Porno era 1971–1982). I'll therefore roll back your edits, as per my rationale above. -- The Anome (talk) 00:00, 25 September 2011 (UTC)

FROM THE EDITOR
An Historic Milestone

By Lionelt

Welcome to the inaugural issue of The Right Stuff, the newsletter of WikiProject Conservatism. The Project has developed at a breakneck speed since it was created on February 12, 2011 with the edit summary, "Let's roll!" With over 50 members the need for a project newsletter is enormous. With over 3000 articles to watch, an active talk page and numerous critical discussions spread over various noticeboards, it has become increasingly difficult to manage the information overload. The goal of The Right Stuff is to help you keep up with the changing landscape.

The Right Stuff is a newsletter consisting of original reporting. Writers will use a byline to "sign" their contributions. Just as with The Signpost, "guidelines such as 'no ownership of articles', and particularly 'no original research', will not necessarily apply."

WikiProject Conservatism has a bright future ahead: this newsletter will allow us tell the story. All that's left to say is: "Let's roll!"

New Style Guide Unveiled

By Lionelt

A new style guide to help standardize editing was rolled out. It focuses on concepts, people and organizations from a conservatism perspective. The guide features detailed article layouts for several types of articles. You can help improve it here. The Project's Article Collaboration currently has two nominations, but they don't appear to be generating much interest. You can get involved with the Collaboration here.

I am pleased to report that we have two new members: Rjensen and Soonersfan168. Rjensen is a professional historian and has access to JSTOR. Soonersfan168 says he is a "young conservative who desires to improve Wikipedia!" Unfortunately we will be seeing less of Geofferybard, as he has announced his semi-retirement. We wish him well. Be sure to stop by their talk pages and drop off some Wikilove.

On August 3rd Peter Oborne, a British journalist, became the Project's 3,000th tagged article. It is a tribute to the membership that we have come this far this quickly. The latest Featured Article is Richard Nixon. Our congratulations to Wehwalt for a job well done. The article with the most page views was Rick Perry with 887,389 views, not surprising considering he announced he was running for president on August 11th. Follwing Perry were Michele Bachmann and Tea Party movement. The Project was ranked 75th based on total edits, which is up from 105th in July. The article with the most edits was Republican Party (United States) presidential primaries, 2012 with 374 edits. An RFC regarding candidate inclusion criteria generated much interest on the talk page.

INTERVIEW
An Interview with Dank

By Lionelt

6 Star.svg

The Right Stuff caught up with Dank, the recently elected Lead Coordinator of WikiProject Military History. MILHIST is considered by many to be one of the most successful projects in the English Wikipedia.

Q: Tell us a little about yourself.
A: I'm Dan, a Wikipedian since 2007, from North Carolina. I started out with an interest in history, robotics, style guidelines, and copyediting. These days, I'm the lead coordinator for the Military History Project and a reviewer of Featured Article Candidates. I've been an administrator and maintained WP:Update, a summary of policy changes, since 2008.

Q: What is your experience with WikiProjects?
A: I guess I'm most familiar with WP:MILHIST and WP:SHIPS, and I'm trying to get up to speed at WP:AVIATION. I've probably talked with members of most of the wikiprojects at one time or another.

Q: What makes a WikiProject successful?
A: A lot of occasional contributors who think of the project as fun rather than work, a fair number of people willing to write or review articles, a small core of like-minded people who are dedicated to building and maintaining the project, and access to at least a few people who are familiar with reviewing standards and with Wikipedia policies and guidelines.

Q: Do you have any tips for increasing membership?
A: Aim for a consistent, helpful and professional image. Let people know what the project is doing and what they could be doing, but don't push.





If you've got a core group interested in building a wikiproject, it helps if they do more listening than talking at first ... find out what people are trying to do, and offer them help with whatever it is. Some wikiprojects build membership by helping people get articles through the review processes.

Abortion Case Plods Along

By Lionelt

The arbitration request submitted by Steven Zhang moved into its second month. The case, which evaluates user conduct, arose from contentious discussions regarding the naming of the Pro-life and Pro-choice articles, and a related issue pertaining to the inclusion of "death" in the lede of Abortion. A number of members are involved. On the Evidence page ArtifexMahem posted a table indicating that DMSBel made the most edits to the Abortion article. DMSBel has announced their semi-retirement.

WikiProject Conservatism faces the ultimate test

By Lionelt

On October 7, WikiProject Conservatism was nominated for deletion by member Binksternet. He based his rationale on what he described as an undefinable scope, stating that the project is "at its root undesirable". Of the 40 participants in the discussion, some agreed that the scope was problematic; however, they felt it did not justify deletion of the project. A number of participants suggested moving the project to "WikiProject American conservatism". The overwhelming sentiment was expressed by Guerillero who wrote: "A project is a group of people. This particular group does great work in their topic area[,] why prevent them from doing this[?]" In the end there was negligible opposition to the project and the result of the discussion was "Keep". The proceedings of the deletion discussion were picked up by The Signpost, calling the unfolding drama "the first MfD of its kind". The Signpost observed that attempting to delete an active project was unprecedented. The story itself became a source of controversy which played out at the Discuss This Story section, and also at the author's talk page.

Two days after the project was nominated, the Conservatism Portal was also nominated for deletion as "too US-biased". There was no support for deletion amongst the 10 participants, with one suggestion to rename the portal.

In other news, a new portal focusing on conservatism has been created at WikiSource. Wikisource is an online library of free content publications with 254,051 accessible texts. One highlight of the portal's content is Reflections on the Revolution in France by Edmund Burke.

October saw a 6.4% increase in new members, bringing the total membership to 58. Seven of the eight new members joined after October 12; the deletion discussions may have played a role in the membership spike. Mwhite148 is a member of the UK Conservative Party. Stating that he is not a conservative, Kleinzach noted his "lifetime interest in British, European and international politics." Let's all make an effort to welcome the new members with an outpouring of Wikilove.

The closing administrator reasoned that consensus dictated that the list be renamed. The current title is Timeline of modern American conservatism.

Wikipedia's Newest Featured Portal: Conservatism

By Lionelt

On January 21, The Conservatism Portal was promoted to Featured Portal (FP) due largely to the contributions of Lionelt. This is the first Featured content produced by WikiProject Conservatism. The road to Featured class was rocky. An earlier nomination for FP failed, and in October the portal was "Kept" after being nominated for deletion.

Member Eisfbnore significantly contributed to the successful Good Article nomination of Norwegian journalist and newspaper editor Nils Vogt in December. Eisfbnore also created the article. In January another Project article was promoted to Featured Article. Luís Alves de Lima e Silva, Duke of Caxias, a president of Brazil, attained Featured class with significant effort by Lecen. The Article Incubator saw its first graduation in November. A collaboration spearheaded by Mzk1 and Trackerseal successfully developed Star Parker to pass the notability guideline.

Project Scope Debated

By Lionelt

Another discussion addressing the project scope began in December. Nine alternatives were presented in the contentious, sometimes heated discussion. Support was divided between keeping the exitsing scope, or adopting a scope with more specificity. Some opponents of the specific scope were concerned that it was too limiting and would adversely affect project size. About twenty editors participated in the discussion.

Inclusion of the article Ku Klux Klan (KKK) was debated. Supporters for inclusion cited sources describing the KKK as "conservative." The article was excluded with more than 10 editors participating.

DISCUSSION REPORT
Why is Everyone Talking About Rick Santorum?

By Lionelt

Rick Santorum by Gage Skidmore.jpg

Articles about the GOP presidential candidate and staunch traditional marriage supporter have seen an explosion of discussion. On January 8 an RFC was opened (here) to determine if Dan Savage's website link should be included in Campaign for "santorum" neologism. The next day the Rick Santorum article itself was the subject of an RFC (here) to determine if including the Savage neologism was a violation of the BLP policy. Soon after a third was opened (here) at Santorum controversy regarding homosexuality. This RFC proposes merging the neologism article into the controversy article.

The Abortion case closed in November after 15 weeks of contentious arbitration. The remedies include semi-protection of all abortion articles (numbering 1,500), sanctions for some editors including members of this Project, and a provision for a discussion to determine the names of what are colloquially known as the pro-life and pro-choice articles. The Committee endorsed the "1 revert rule" for abortion articles.

Thomas E. Dewey[edit]

I saw your edit summary on Thomas E. Dewey and I don't think you are correct that Dewey's term as Governor of New York ended in 1955 rather than 1954. The terms of Governors of New York begin on January 1 of an odd-numbered year and end on December 31 of the even-numbered year four years later, so Dewey's term ended on December 31, 1954. See also List of Governors of New York. If you have a source suggesting something different I'd be interested in seeing it. Thanks, Newyorkbrad (talk) 00:08, 16 March 2013 (UTC)
