Jack Kerouac[edit]

Hey, I see you're adding some interesting material on the writing of On the Road in the JK article. What about citations for it? Bertport (talk) 01:25, 9 May 2008 (UTC)

No, I won't delete. And, no, I don't see how photos taken at a museum would really work as citations. But a photo of the scroll might make a nice addition to the On the Road article. Bertport (talk) 04:10, 9 May 2008 (UTC)


"Thanks for the Kerouac fix up. I type these things too fast." Somehow, typing too fast is appropriate for a Kerouac article... Glane23 (talk) 19:47, 13 May 2008 (UTC)


What do you think about refs to IMDB (for the Film Adapation section)? The film-in-progress is reffed on IMDB here: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0337692/. I know there is some discussion floating around wiki about the appropriateness of IMDB, so I didn't just add it. Glane23 (talk) 02:15, 30 June 2008 (UTC)

Celine and Jack Kerouac[edit]

Sorry about that edit. It was merely based on the fact based on the fact that both Allen Ginsberg and W.S. Burroughs both cited Celine as an influence. They visited him in Paris in 1955. Exiledone (talk) 12:43, 18 May 2008 (UTC)

Wikipedia meetup in New Orleans[edit]

(This is being cross-posted to everyone listed in Category:Wikipedians from Baton Rouge, Louisiana and Category:Wikipedians in New Orleans, Louisiana)

Oxford Wikimania 2010 and Wikimedia UK v2.0 Notice[edit]

Hi,

As a regularly contributing UK Wikipedian, we were wondering if you wanted to contribute to the Oxford bid to host the 2010 Wikimania conference. Please see here for details of how to get involved, we need all the help we can get if we are to put in a compelling bid.

We are also in the process of forming a new UK Wikimedia chapter to replace the soon to be folded old one. If you are interested in helping shape our plans, showing your support or becoming a future member or board member, please head over to the Wikimedia UK v2.0 page and let us know. We plan on holding an election in the next month to find the initial board, who will oversee the process of founding the company and accepting membership applications. They will then call an AGM to formally elect a new board who after obtaining charitable status will start the fund raising, promotion and active support for the UK Wikimedian community for which the chapter is being founded.

You may also wish to attend the next London meet-up at which both of these issues will be discussed. If you can't attend this meetup, you may want to watch Wikipedia:Meetup, for updates on future meets.

We look forward to hearing from you soon, and we send our apologies for this automated intrusion onto your talk page!

Hey y'all![edit]

We're going to be having our first Mississippi meetup next month, and I would love it if you'd like to come out! A few of us will be staying overnight, so if you feel up to it, we could have a meet and greet that night and then breakfast the next morning and talk about Wikipedia and everyone's areas of expertise. Let's show 'em how it's done Southern-style! Mike H. Fierce! 21:46, 20 November 2008 (UTC)

Flagged Revs[edit]

Not at all. In fact, it's a compliment. For that, thanks. Allreet (talk) 04:37, 12 January 2009 (UTC)

Sami Page[edit]

Rather than continue the edit war that is now going on the Sami Page photo. Please discuss it on the Discussion page of the article. Further edit warring will get no where.... Dinkytown (talk) 20:46, 8 February 2009 (UTC)

I wasn't really trying to edit war. Whoever keeps doing it doesn't seem willing to discuss it themselves. They just sorta divebomb the thing, start calling what they don't like vandalism, and changing it. It's coming off as a little territorial. Myself, I couldn't care less what pictures are up there, but I just didn't feel that was the way to go about making a big change. If they change it back, I'll call for discussion before reverting again. --Leodmacleod (talk) 03:35, 11 February 2009 (UTC)
Hi Leo - I wasn't trying to make any accusations. I was just trying to keep a NPOV in the dispute and hopefully move the fight into a boxing ring, rather than in the street... I put the same line for him. Always question people who have numbers for names... You are right about the 'dive-bombing' description though - pretty accurate... It looks like he didn't respond so I guess its a mute letter. Take Care... Dinkytown (talk) 03:51, 11 February 2009 (UTC)

thanks for the information[edit]

thanks for the information that you sent me, it's very helpful. How do I decide which warning level I need to apply to a user? Could you please answer the question on my talk page. Thanks Griffinofwales (talk) 00:05, 9 February 2009 (UTC)

Dear Science,[edit]

I'm sorry, why do I need to TALK about it when the references speak for themselves and I'm following wiki guidelines? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 129.234.217.155 (talk) 20:05, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

Mojo (Publisher) (p.72) - Ranked #20 in Mojo's "The 50 Best Albums Of 2008" -- "[A] wryly optimistic set of future-soul and indie-funk statements..."129.234.217.155 (talk) 20:08, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

http://musicmp3.ru/review_tv-on-the-radio__dear-science.html "The new disc by TV On The Radio features the same soul of experiments, as its predecessors. However, on their previous releases, TV On The Radio used funk as one of the elements of no great importance, while on Dear Science it became one of the main explored elements."

I rest my case.129.234.217.155 (talk) 20:10, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

Right, I've added EXPLICIT references. I don't care what the article on funk says. As you well know (or should know), using other wikipedia articles to make and/or confirm a point is redundant.129.234.217.155 (talk) 20:33, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

Well on one side we have you who bases his edits on other wikipedia articles and on the other me who bases his edits on reputable media, both in print and the internet. If you don't like the tag 'funk' then tough. A considerable amount of sources consider it and review it as such. We'll see what the admins decide. Have a nice day. 129.234.217.155 (talk) 21:17, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

So you know, 129.234.217.155 has already been banned for the edits you're referring to, I reported him last night. However, I'm no longer on your side as far as his edits are concerned. It's clear that the contributions he made are valid and well-sourced, and I see no reason to keep removing them as you are. Do you care to explain why it is you feel the need to keep doing so? Rwiggum (Talk/Contrib) 21:30, 2 March 2009 (UTC)
Oh, well the only reason is discussion. User:WesleyDodds, who's contributed to all sorts of Alt-Rock featured articles, gave individual reasons in his edit summaries as to why he was changing the things posted by 129.234.217.155. When that sort of thing happens and you disagree with the changes made to your edits, my understanding was that you were suppose to go the discussion page and find some kind of consensus. 129.234.217.155 failed to do that, and instead just reverted back and included what I felt were some strident comments. In the past when this sort of thing arises, I typically defend the more experienced editor, who is typically more right, and revert back to the edits they've made, leaving a note as to why I've done it. This is what I did. (Notice, I didn't change the part you approved of.) 129.234.217.155 then came back and re-did his edits, again with out discussion. Now, I'm not personally invested in the article. I'm just a recent changes patrol-man. He could very well be right on about everything, but since he seems set on not hitting that discussion button and getting consensus with the people who really disagreed with him, I thought the only thing to do would be report the whole thing to the admins and let them straighten it out. Personally, I think this is really immature, especially the highly personal way he's taking all of this.

Also, if he's banned, how is it he's stilled editing? I think I'm missing something. --Leodmacleod (talk) 22:50, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

Dear Science[edit]

Hey, thanks for your input. For one, it's not exactly a great policy to always side with the more experienced editor, as they aren't always right. I also notice that although you chided 129.234.217.155 for not taking the issue to the talk page, I can't help but notice that neither did you. If you have an issue the burden doesn't lie with any one person to take an issue to the talk page, and you could have done that yourself, but instead you just perpetuated the edit war. And he is editing because 3RR bans are not permanent, and first-time cases are not generally long bans, and his was a 12-hour ban that has since expired. If you have any other issues, don't hesitate to let me know. Rwiggum (Talk/Contrib) 02:23, 3 March 2009 (UTC)

The Citation for the (significant) "Ancient Irish-Africa" DNA Connection[edit]

The citation was there (you missed it). It was in the Wikipedia link in the new section.

Here it is-- Haplogroup R1b (Y-DNA)

A) Both articles discuss how the native Irish population is over 90% of this Haplogroup.

B) The Haplogroup R1b (Y-DNA) Wikipedia article opens by explaining the high incidence of this Haplogroup in 3 areas--

1) Western Europe (especially high in Ireland and also the Basque country), 2) Central Africa (later in the article it details that this is so especially in part of Cameroon) and 3) a part of Central Asia.

75.166.179.110 (talk) 19:58, 30 March 2010 (UTC)


P.S. It's nothing to be ashamed of. It's just a part of who we (Irish) are.

Best,

Stephens City, Virginia History[edit]

Hello, I am needing some help and am not sure which board to go to. I am needing help writing a condensed version of the History of Stephens City, Virginia. I have tried and seriously failed. I am trying to get the Stephens City, Virginia article up to Good Article status and the reviewers have said that the current history section, while very good, is just too darned long. So my plan is to move the longer history section to History of Stephens City, Virginia and have a condensed version on the Stephens City, Virginia page. I typically write radio station articles, so town/city history isn't my forté. I tried asking for help at WP:CITIES, but that talk page hasn't seen any edits since March 24th. I requested the help of a couple editors from WP:CITIES, but they didn't do much writing either. Is there anyone who could help on this? - NeutralHomerTalk • 02:41, 2 April 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Dors Feline[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Dors Feline 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 - if no such tag exists then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hangon 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. 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. ttonyb (talk) 03:17, 25 May 2010 (UTC)
