Hello Leobold1, and welcome to WikiProject Ships!

Please see the navigation sidebar on our main project page for information about our project guidelines, resources, and pending tasks. You can post any questions at the project talk page. Thank you for joining - we look forward to working with you! Maralia (talk) 02:02, 6 February 2008 (UTC)

Hello[edit]

Regarding: http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Talk:Berkeley%2C_California&curid=283480&diff=190066689&oldid=190066119 yes indeed there is an element named Berkelium

Peace,

Thanks[edit]

Thanks for the aid in the XXII Corps (ACW) page. I learned a couple things from your assistance. Leobold1 (talk) 19:36, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

You're welcome. If you are interested in other tips, I have compiled a list of style guidelines in User:Hlj/CWediting. Hal Jespersen (talk) 20:12, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

XXII Corps[edit]

Leobold, you're more than welcome to make any changes to the Defenses of Washington DC infobox that you see fit. I'm just happy that someone's found it useful enough to make changes to. I've pretty much retired from the Military History side of Wikipedia in an effort to focus more on college football, so feel free to do what you think is right to make that infobox a better fit and more useful. Thanks for all your hard work! JKBrooks85 (talk) 06:19, 12 February 2008 (UTC)

Helpful Links[edit]

In case you wondered where it went, your Helpful Links page ended up in main article space by mistake. I moved it to User:Leobold1/Helpful Links for you. -- Shadowlynk (Talk) 06:00, 13 February 2008 (UTC)

XXII review[edit]

You asked for review comments:

  1. If you want to advance this article to a status such as Good Article or Featured Article, you need to add footnotes.
  2. The paragraph about naming of the armies, while marginally relevant to an article about a corps, needs to be derived -- and cited -- from a secondary source.
  3. You overuse capital letters within sentences, such as Corps and Regiment; capitalize them only when referring to specific named units.
  4. You have some date formatting problems, mostly of the month-year variety -- consult my style guide for examples.
  5. You should be consistent about abbreviating and linking to ranks; once again, my style guide has suggestions.
  6. Section headers should be capitalized only in their first word.
  7. There are dates missing under Notable officers (note caps).
  8. Regiments and Brigades of XXII Corps should be Component units or something similar because you have other types of units included. This section would work better as a table.
  9. Why is the 43rd Virginia Cavalry listed in See also? If it is relevant, it should be included in the text of the article.
  10. I assume you used Fox as a reference, not an external link. A ref for it is (replace the embedded URL as you see fit):

Hal Jespersen (talk) 17:05, 13 February 2008 (UTC)

I don't want to mess around with your text because you still have the underconstruction flag raised. FYI, you are using a very old and outdated method for creating Notes, from the antediluvian days of Wikipedia. Check out my style guide for examples of how to use the current reference/note system: User:Hlj/CWediting#Footnotes. Hal Jespersen (talk) 18:37, 14 February 2008 (UTC)

Image:106th Field Signal Battalion.jpg[edit]

Well, what I've found is that if you leave a blank space in the summary section of any important item (author, date, etc.) the image will be tagged. At the bottom of the upload file choice box there is the line (Do you already know the license and are familiar with our image policies? Go directly to the upload form.). If you use that choice, you have more options as to licensing. The image was pre 1923 so that changes the license you want to use. In the summary field you can leave a statement rather than trying to fill in a form that you may not have all the information. Since I'm not an expert, I hope my help solved the image problem.

Milhist coordinators election has started[edit]

Infoboxes[edit]

Hi there, I saw your comment at WikiProject Infoboxes. Please don't take this the wrong way, but I can see you're fairly new at infoboxes and at the bottom of the learning curve. Nothing wrong with that, we were all there once! It's quite difficult to explain how infobox templates need to be designed. I learnt by looking at some of the infoboxes in Category:Infobox templates and I suggest you have a look round there. It looks like the infobox you were designing is something to do with military history (not my area at all!), I would suggest looking at the information at WP:MILMOS#INFOBOX, which is a subpage of WikiProject Military history. WikiProject Military history is a very active group and I'm sure they'll be able to help if a relevant infobox has already been designed. Have fun! SeveroTC 00:16, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Belated reply[edit]

First, thank you very much for your support. The thing with Milhist is the size of the project. It means that solutions have to be scaled up into thousands or tens of thousands and evaluated on that basis. I rather enjoy trying to solve the logistical challenges that it presents. --ROGER DAVIES talk 05:17, 23 February 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for your support[edit]

Leobold1: I wish to thank you for your support in my unsuccessful bid at becoming an Assistant Coordinator for the Military history WikiProject. Rest assured that I will still be around, probably even more than before, and I have the utmost confidence in the abilities of the current and new coordinators. I might also mention that I am already planning on running again in August. As always, if you need anything, just get in touch. -MBK004 21:34, 29 February 2008 (UTC)

My edit of you private page[edit]

I took the liberty of editing your private page, Leobold1/Helpful Links, because the syntax for the template {{shortcut}} is in the process of being updated. You used the template {{Humorantipolicy2}} which includes the template being updated. Your implementation, which worked previously, broke the new syntax.

Dancing with the Stars colour change proposal[edit]

There's been a few comments that the colours on the scoring charts for Dancing with the Stars are less than ideal for a number of reasons (colour differentiation, hurts the eyes, clashes etc) so I've put a proposal for a colour change up here. Obviously other suggestions are welcome, but I do think a change of some sort should be considered... and this seems like a good time (now that we're officially in between seasons and the articles are stable). As you've shown interest in the past, I thought I'd let you know. Cheers. PageantUpdater talkcontribs 11:00, 21 May 2008 (UTC)

Motto of the day[edit]

Hello, I notice you're using one of the {{motd}} templates, run by Wikipedia:Motto of the day. You may have noticed that some of the mottos recently have been followed by a date from 2006, or on occasion simply "Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia". The reason for this is that Motto of the day is in some very serious need of help. Participation in the project, which has never been especially high, has dropped considerably over this past summer, to the point we have had several days where no motto was scheduled to appear at all. Over the past several weeks, I've been the only editor scheduling mottos at all, but there aren't enough comments on some of these mottos to justify their use. If we do not get some help - and soon - your daily mottos will stop. In order for us to continue updating these templates for you, we need your help.

When you get a chance between your normal editing, could you stop by our nominations page and leave a few comments on some of the mottos there, especially those that do not have any comments yet? This works very simply; you read a motto, decide whether or not you like it, and post your opinion just below the motto. That's it - no experience required, just an idea of what you personally like and what you feel reflects Wikipedia and its community. If you do have past experience with the project, then please close some of the older nominations once they've got a decent consensus going. There are directions on the nominations page on how to do this.

If you have any questions, please let me know, or post on the project's talk page. I'm looking forward to reading your comments on the suggested mottos, and any additional suggestions you'd like to make. Until then, happy editing! Hersfold (t/a/c) 02:37, 4 September 2008 (UTC)

WikiProject Space reorganization[edit]

Hello WikiProject Space member! A discussion has been started regarding the future of WikiProject Space here; any comments you might have would be welcome! There are mainly two competing ideas:

  1. Centralize all the Space-related WikiProjects, such as Astronomy and Spaceflight, and merge them into WikiProject Space, or
  2. Separate the Astronomy and Spaceflight "sides" of WikiProject, and remove WikiProject Space.

If you can think of other options, that's great too. Your contribution to the discussion would be much appreciated. Thanks! :)

WikiProject Spaceflight activity[edit]

Hello there! As part of an effort to determine how many active editors are present in the spaceflight-related WikiProjects, changes have been made to the list of members of WikiProject Spaceflight. If you still consider yourself to be an active editor in this project, it would be appreciated if you would please edit the list so that your name is not struck out - thus a clearer idea of the number of active editors can be determined.

It would be much appreciated if you would like to participate in the various ongoing discussions at the reorganisation page and the WikiProject Spaceflight talk page.

Possible deletion of [[Cross generation ship]][edit]

Hi Leobold1:

You put a link to the [[Cross generation ship]] article on one of your user pages, so here is a notice of AfD in case you are interested:

Nomination of Cross generation ship for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Cross generation ship is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Cross generation ship until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on good quality evidence, and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion template from the top of the article.

MOTDs (This space for rent)[edit]

You may have noticed over the past few days that the MOTD that you link to on your user page has simply displayed a red link. This is due to the fact that not enough people are reviewing pending MOTDs here. Please help us keep the MOTD template alive and simply go and review a few of the MOTDs in the list. That way we can have a real MOTD in the future rather than re-using (This space for rent). Any help would be appreciated! ·Add§hore· Talk To Me! 14:09, 6 March 2012 (UTC)

WikiProject C-SPAN?[edit]

Greetings fellow Wikipedia editor -

I am leaving you this note because I have reason to believe that you are interested in C-SPAN. (I may have made this assumption based on your C-SPAN user box, or perhaps for some other reason.) If this is not an interest of yours, please feel free to read no further and delete this message.

If you are in fact someone who is interested in C-SPAN, then let me put forward an idea that I have been kicking around for a while. What if we started a C-SPAN WikiProject?

The parameters of this (potential) project are up for discussion, but it could include some or all of the following (as well as things that may occur to you that have not occurred to me):

  • Creation, maintenance, and improvement of articles and lists directly related to C-SPAN and its programming.
  • Use of C-SPAN programming in citations for various topics
  • Inclusion of unique and targeted C-SPAN video links for various articles. (Doing this with respect for established guidelines at Wikipedia:External links.) (Example: If you are interested in the submarine USS Wyoming (SSBN-742), then having easy access to the eight hours of programming taped while a C-SPAN crew were guests on that submarine could also be of interest to you.)
  • Inclusion of (and possible further creation of) templated links such as {{C-SPAN|laurabush}}, that will easily take article readers to a link of all C-SPAN Video Library links for the person about whom the article is about.
  • What else?

I don't know exactly how far we may want to go, nor in what directions, but I do believe (as I have long noted on my user page) that C-SPAN and Wikipedia are both...

...fantastic vehicles for the free exchange of ideas and information in a non-sound-bite manner, and they both invite the participation of any parties (expert or amateur) who are interested in taking the time to absorb and/or contribute to the ideas and information offered. C-SPAN and Wikipedia go together like peanut butter and jelly, and I want to help give other Wiki users easy access to the great work that C-SPAN has done on a variety of topics.

Now, I should mention that I have never started a WikiProject before, and I do not know the best way to go about it. (Perhaps one of you do?) Let me offer one of my sandbox pages, User:KConWiki/sandbox/Wikiproject C-SPAN?, as a gathering area for comments until such time as we gather enough steam to start our own WikiProject page.

Thanks for reading this far, and I hope that you will give some consideration as to whether this is something we ought to attempt. Please feel free to pass this message on to others you know whom might be interested, and please let me know your thoughts and comments.

Motto of the Day Help Request April 2014[edit]

Today's motto...

Moment of inner freedom
when the mind is opened & the
infinite universe revealed
& the soul is left to wander
dazed & confus'd searching
here & there for teachers & friends.


Nominate one today!

Motto of the Day (WP:MOTD) is in a state of emergency and really needs your help! There are not enough editors who are reviewing or nominating mottos at Wikipedia:Motto of the day/Nominations/In review, and this probably means that you will notice a red link or “This space for rent” as our mottos for the next weeks and months.

Please take a moment to review the nominations and nominate your own new mottos at Wikipedia:Motto of the day/Nominations/In review and Wikipedia:Motto of the day/Nominations/'Specials. Any help would be appreciated! MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 09:13, 29 April 2014 (UTC)

This message has been sent by pjoef on behalf of Motto of the Day to all editors of the English Wikipedia who are showing MOTD's templates on their pages, and to all the participants to MOTD: (page, template, and category).
