revised (now properly cited) article for JERRY MASTERS[edit]

Hi Kevin,

I hope this message finds you doing well in the New Year. I recently submitted an article about a musician and recording engineer named Jerry Masters. You were kind enough to initially review the article for submission. It was declined on basis of not proper/not enough citation basis. I have worked hard to add the adequate number of references from various credible sources along with historic photography. There are now 9 cited sources pertaining to each paragraph.

I am a journalist and music business historian based in Alabama and some of my work covers the rich history of recording music arts and heritage in the South and this state in particular. Im a greenhorn novice as regards Wikipedia, so I appreciate your letting me know about the deficiency in citations being an issue. I was a bit lazy in dealing with a historical personage and sometimes I have to admit I get "tunnel vision" in writing about music and take for granted/assume that everyone has already heard of many of the people I write about. hahah. Sorry about that.

At any rate, I have got some solid citational references in there now, so at your convenience if you could let me know if all things look up to speed now for a re-submission, I'd greatly appreciate it. The newly edited/updated draft is saved in my sandbox for review.

I know you guys are busy, and I appreciate your volunteer work as a contributing editor to the Wikipedia cause. It's exciting to join the family. I hope that over time, I'll get more used to the process on submission.

best,

That looks a lot better, as I am pondering writing more about Muscle Shoals in the future, once I figure out more of the history and am able to figure out the timeline a bit more. Good luck! Kevin Rutherford (talk) 02:48, 13 January 2015 (UTC)

Request on 17:22:59, 10 January 2015 for assistance on AfC submission by 75.141.236.112[edit]


Kevin, thank you for your review of Kent Philpott.

I respectfully disagree with your determination and I offer the following additional explanation in argument for this.

On myself, which is not part of the page. I was an atheist, and had no knowledge that the Jesus people Movement existed, let alone what an awakening was. I thought Billy Graham was misguided at best, having heard him once at a rally in South Africa. I am today one of the authorities on Operation Savannah - in particular the battle of Luso. Angola 1975/76 - a CIA operation to stop the advance of communism.

http://operationsavannah.com/preface

I publish web sites on various social issues, like energy efficiency - http://open4energy.com - and write on the use of chemicals in the dental industry. If you google the term "bischoff chemical dental" - you will see an article I wrote for the #1 publication to the dental industry.

After 25 years as an alcoholic, I was helped to get sober, and on 10th October 2001 accepted Jesus. Today I am a student of PTSD and alcoholism, in particular how AA and a spiritual awakening has changed the face of alcoholism. It was in researching the history of "awakenings" that I discovered the spiritual and historical importance of the Jesus People Movement" - It is my generation that are recognizing how drugs and alcohol, which were the medication for PTSD and the Emotional Injuries of the Vietnam war. Sadky, we are repeating teh same mistake, as we see 10 young people commit suicide every day as a result of trauma this past 10 years and the gulf war.

This wiki page, is much more to me that a history on Philpott. It is how we expose our younger generation to the past, and to not make the same mistakes.

Before I start adding more information (there are 100's of references that could be added) (I wanted to begin with quality and not quantity) here is why I believe that the Movement is an important event (it is referenced on Wiki) - Philpott meets the definition for a person of "note" - and the citations meet the standard for independent authority.

I will of course add more information, and as many more citations as you require. Although, looking at pages on other people of note. I have found the to be less complete, for a more minor event, for a person with a more minor role, and citation of more minor authority than a PHD study by the authority on the subject.

Eskridge published the book God's Family Forever. The appendix to the book is the reference material for his doctoral thesis on the movement. He is now the accepted authority on the Jesus people Movement. He is on staff at Wheaton College, has been since 1988.

He affirms the importance I attribute to the movement.

i) "was one of the most important American religious movements of the second half of the 20th century." ii) "is one of the formative powers that shaped American youth in the late 1960's and 1970's." iii) "Calvary Chapel (Chuck Smith) and the Vineyard churches trace their roots to the Jesus People Movement"

He states that Philpott as the person who introduced Christianity (what grew into the movement) to San Francisco. (citation made)

He further accredits Philpott as the person who preached the Gospel to Hoyt. Literally saved from the fire in the temple. Hoyt is in the late stages of releasing his book. I have interviewed Hoyt, who after being born again, together with Philpott went on to establish the communities that saved 1000's of young people from the drug culture and abuse that was taking place.

Hoyt, was drawn away, to be a founder of the "Children of God (http://www.vice.com/read/the-bizarre-and-terrifying-propaganda-art-of-the-children-of-god-666) - lost his family, and almost his life before seeing his error, and rebuilding his life.

Hoyt could be seen as #2 of the movement. I am planning to develop a page for him also when his book is released.

The citation I have placed to Eskridge is the most authoritative that can exist.

Eskridge wrote the forward to Philpott's memoir - Memoirs of a Jesus Freak - saying "Memoirs of a Jesus Freak is an important, first hand, reminiscence about those pivotal early days... helpful to scholars, pastors and lay people as they reflect on the past.

I offer that that the material in Philpott's memoir, although written by him, can be considered authoritative by the introduction from the subject authority.

The memoir includes photographs, accounts of the music, the preaching, the leaders, the communities and the cults that developed later.

I hope that you will reconsider, or let me know what additional information you require.

Alex

Mary Ann Rhodes (supercentenarian)[edit]

Hi Ktr101, I just wanted to let you know that I speedily deleted an article that you recently moved out of AfC, Mary Ann Rhodes (supercentenarian) by criteria G4, as Rhodes was deemed insufficiently notable for Wikipedia by consensus and a deletion debate and the new article did not address the concerns that were raised in the discussion. Wikipedia has had a lot of difficulty with longevity-related articles in the past that culminated in an Arbcom case, and there are still issues from time to time regarding such articles' adherence to Wikipedia's policies. In any case, I just wanted to leave a quick message, since I'm not in the habit of deleting things without some explanation. 00:51, 11 January 2015 (UTC)

No problem, as I was completely unaware of that case until now and will remember it in the future when I am reviewing articles such as that! Kevin Rutherford (talk) 02:48, 13 January 2015 (UTC)

No problem, and I am glad to have helped! Kevin Rutherford (talk) 02:48, 13 January 2015 (UTC)

Congratulations, Kevin, you are the inaugural winner of the xkcd barnstar. Awarded to users who appropriately and insightfully reference any xkcd comic in a Wikipedia discussion. (The one about "somebody is wrong on the internet" doesn't count, though, because it's applicable to every single discussion on WP.) Anyway, thanks, I laughed and it made a valid point. --Floquenbeam (talk) 23:56, 12 January 2015 (UTC)}

Speedy deletion nomination of Miss India USA[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 Miss India USA requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article or image appears to be a clear copyright infringement. This article or image appears to be a direct copy from http://missindiaflorida.weebly.com/uploads/2/7/8/8/27880907/miss_india_florida_2014_sponsorship_packet.pdf. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If the external website or image belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text or image — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. If you are not the owner of the external website or image but have permission from that owner, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission. You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here.

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.
