Re: Talk:Mead Senior High School[edit]

I've complicated your move request, but if you amend it to Mead High School (Washington), I'll edit the Mead High School redirect as I noted, and support. Dru of Id (talk) 15:49, 11 April 2012 (UTC)

Madeleine (cakes)[edit]

I can understand your objecting to my not providing a "reliable" reference -- but the fact is that, in Vertigo, Madeleine's name is, indeed, a reference to Proust. It was a conscious decision, just as Gavin Elster's name was. (Elster is German for "magpie", a bird that mimics other birds.) I will try to find a written reference. WilliamSommerwerck (talk) 22:18, 27 May 2012 (UTC)

  • The point is that your information does not belong at the cakes article—it has nothing to do with those cakes. You should put the info at the article Madeleine, which is about the name. •••Life of Riley (TC) 22:23, 27 May 2012 (UTC)

Have you seen this? I feel like this person deserves an answer, don't you think? :) SalimJah (talk) 17:36, 18 June 2012 (UTC)

If the user is referring to this edit, you can see that it is clearly vandalism. •••Life of Riley (TC) 03:25, 25 June 2012 (UTC)
Hmmm. I was actually thinking about this edit, but I now realize that you were not the one who initially reverted it. What you reverted was true vandalism previously originating from the same IP, which explains my confusion. The information about Jose Socrates currently being a Sciences Po student seems properly referenced now... :) Thanks! SalimJah (talk) 09:58, 25 June 2012 (UTC)

HELLO[edit]

Thankyou - Life of Riley - for corrections in an article I was updating - AMHERST ISLAND. I didn't realise that the phrase I used from someone elses previous edit was not allowed.

you can say hello on my talk page. I hope I did this correctly. thankyou again. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Thechristiancontender (talkcontribs) 22:35, 30 June 2012 (UTC)

Phrases such as "it should be noted" and "worth noting" are not forbidden, but are considered poor writing (unnecessary wordiness). It is best to avoid them. See Wikipedia:It should be noted.
Also, when leaving a message for a user, remember to add your signature by inserting four tildes (~~~~) at the end of your message. Regards, •••Life of Riley (TC) 23:47, 30 June 2012 (UTC)

How do I insert four tildes (Thechristiancontender (talk) 00:04, 1 July 2012 (UTC)) at the end of my message. Where is that on my keyboard? I got myself a new laptop, but don't know how to use windows 7 very well. learning though. your help is much appreciated.

On most keyboards, the tilde is at the top, to the left of the 1 (one) key. You will probably need to use SHIFT. However, it could be in a different place on a laptop—I don't use a laptop so I'm not sure. Just look for this symbol: ~. •••Life of Riley (TC) 00:09, 1 July 2012 (UTC)
You can also use the button that looks like a pencil scribbling, above the edit window. It is in the top row of buttons, fourth from the left. •••Life of Riley (TC) 00:11, 1 July 2012 (UTC)

Hello ::: I am having a problem with someone whom has jumped into the article on ==Amherst Island== and has removed several links that aided in the articles clarity and comprehension. plus he has removed refences that are needed to keep the article nuetral, and has instead only kept links that one-sided.

trust you can help. he left notes on my talk too, but he is wrong in his application of the subject. thankyou for your help. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Thechristiancontender (talkcontribs) 21:01, 4 July 2012 (UTC)

July 4, 2012[edit]

Hello, again, Thechristiancontender. I reviewed Amherst Island and the changes that you referred to. I agree with most of DoctorKubla's changes, although I thought he could have been a little more courteous to you on your talk page.

Also, please remember to sign your posts with four tildes, or by clicking the button that looks like a scribbling pencil at the top of the edit box when you write your comments. •••Life of Riley (TC) 21:16, 4 July 2012 (UTC)

AFD[edit]

Hello, I've noticed your comment in the AFD about article Ayasrah, kindly have a look at the new edits in the article cause I took your views in consideration, maybe this will save it or even merge it with article sakib. thank you--HF 22:36, 5 July 2012 (UTC)

I would like to draw your attention to the fact that the user:Historyfeelings is now adding more haux to the article. Please note the fact that the majority if not all the information added the article were added by one and only one user click. He is trying to add haux about a sectarian conflicts between muslims and christians where the allged the clan played a role which is a pathaetic and poor try to gain sympathy. The clan did not exist during that time (1860) and it is impossible for the clan to exist as it goes back to a maximum of 5-6 generations. All the sources in the article are either irrelevant or they say nothing about the clan Ayasrah, or cannot be verified, and some are simply fake. The user also added haux using a source which was earlier rejected in the discussion of Jerash article becuase the article copied the information edited by the user on the Arabic version of Wikipedia which makes it a circular reference (Please see Addustour article section in the discussion of Jerash article). The same is also applied to sakib article. Amb04 (talk) 12:49, 6 July 2012 (UTC)

It is already on my watchlist, it's just that my watchlist gets very cluttered and I don't check it or trim it very often :-) but I will try to drop in and check on that article once in a while in case the IP comes back again. Cheers. --Jameboy (talk) 23:02, 9 July 2012 (UTC)

Lynching of Laura and Lawrence Nelson[edit]

Hi Life of Riley, I was wondering about these coordinates you added. I'm trying to check the accuracy of everything in the article, as the sources differ a lot, and the location of the lynching is one of the things I'm having trouble pinning down. I'm wondering whether you based the coordinates on something in the article, or on an external source. SlimVirgin (talk) 00:52, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

  • I looked at the maps on Google and Bing and identified the only bridge across the North Canadian River that is about six miles west of Okemah, as stated in the article. While the old bridge in the picture is no longer there, I think it is a safe bet that the present highway bridge on Route 56 is in the same location as the old one, or very close by. I examined the satellite photos for the presence of the remnants of an old bridge—such as concrete bridge piers—that are often left behind when a bridge is demolished—but I could find none; which tells me that the new bridge was built on top of the old one. Also, note that one of the references for the article refers to the "Schoolton Road". You will find on the maps that Schoolton is about 3 miles southwest of the bridge along the same road. So, while it is not 100% proven that the old bridge was in the location given, I think it is a very high likelihood. Nevertheless, if you feel the need to remove the coordinates as unproven, I will not fight you. •••Life of Riley (TC) 02:31, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
  • What you say makes sense, thank you, and thanks for doing so much research into it. So is it correct to say "on the bridge carrying what is now State Highway 56 across the North Canadian River"? I removed that because I wasn't sure, but I'm wondering now if I should restore it, perhaps adding a "probably". SlimVirgin (talk) 03:26, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Well, strictly speaking, it is not the same bridge, but a bridge in the same location; but yes, I think you could say that. (If you look at Google Street View, you can see that it it not the same bridge.) •••Life of Riley (TC) 04:57, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
  • That or something similar sounds fine to me. •••Life of Riley (TC) 18:20, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
