First of all, happy new year! BTW, I just found out that Ubisoft created its own version of your image of Miguel Enríquez to promote a video game. That's a new one, isn't it? - Caribbean~H.Q. 19:35, 2 January 2014 (UTC)

I actually enjoyed seeing Miguel reaching the electronics industry before Cofresí. Roberto's myth has become part of our culture, but all of the historic sources suggest that he was a lot colder, albeit clearly competent and intelligent, than his "Robin Hood" persona. A real pirate, if you will. Miguel on the other hand, made a fortune on brain power alone and that is truly impressive. Yet, for him to remain anonymous for three centuries is unforgettable. He was Spain's answer to Francis Drake and was completely dismissed by those that he served. - Caribbean~H.Q. 06:39, 3 January 2014 (UTC)
I lost my old e-mail account when the computer died and must give the new address to you. I have linked the current one to this account. However, for some reason, Wikipedia is not letting me send you one. I am not seeing the "e-mail user" link, can you see it on my profile? - Caribbean~H.Q. 06:39, 3 January 2014 (UTC)

List of people from Ponce, Puerto Rico[edit]

Hi. I am of the opinion that since the wikilinks to each listed person's article lead to the necessary cites, then the cites are just unecessary duplicates in this list, and then we really don't need cites in the list. Wouldn't you agree? (In fact I used to have a few, then realized the duplication of effort and halted the practice.) Thanks. Mercy11 (talk) 05:25, 19 January 2014 (UTC)

WP:Help desk is good, but my favorite is WP:TEAHOUSE for beginner-like questions. For mediawiki-software-questions, there is WP:VPT, and for general-computer-problems there is a subsection of the refdesk. Tony is the invisible power behind the throne, methinks, and probably all the people at the helpdesk just email him for their answers.  :-)   — (talk) 13:55, 29 January 2014 (UTC)

National Cemetery[edit]

According to THIS and Puerto Rico National Cemetery, "In 1962, the remains of those interred on all other five military cemeteries on the island were transferred here." I have become interested in findong out which were/are the other 5 military cemeteries in the island. As you might know cemeteries provide a wealth of historical information; thus my interest. Do you know where these "other five" where located at, and if not, where do you think someone could find out? Thanks. Mercy11 (talk) 03:35, 4 February 2014 (UTC)

Puerto Rico introduction[edit]

As your near-contemporary Marine 1970-73 active, 73-75 active reserve, in aviation supply in Vietnam and stateside, I want to thank you for your work on Wikipedia. You may enjoy scanning my User boxes. I am saddened that --- while I would have Puerto Rico made a state larger than 20 states of smaller population, --- as I understand it, you would have Puerto Rico independent of the United States. I had similar experiences to yours in the Corps, and I refuse to defend the indefensible injustices we find throughout history.

Thank you for contributing to the DRN on Puerto Rico, it is not clear we disagree, -- though you would emphasize one side "unincorporated", -- since I would like to report both sides of the controversy, see Burnett and Marshall, Foreign in a Domestic Sense, p. 17, "The dispute over the precise content of this [Congressional power of incorporation] is at the heart of today's status debate." The goal is to improve WP by adding sourced information of today's controversy to the PR article.

The process Ahnoneemoos began, which was --- a) to add in the article introduction, "several judges and scholars have concluded that PR is incorporated", sourced to Lawson and Sloane's article in Boston College Law Review and Gelpi's researched opinion, --- b) while noting official U.S. online sources represent PR as unincorporated. --- And I suggest a note might be included --- c) that at a source supplied by Mercy11, Downes shows PR to be unincorporated for Revenue Clause purposes alone.

A similar DRN came up for United States a year ago successfully including PR in the US, but failing in this DRN by Ahnoneemoos, I mean to apply myself to additional research and await another year, as I spend very much more time at WP in research and writing in history and military articles than disputing in country articles. I look forward to your reply. TheVirginiaHistorian (talk) 14:26, 4 February 2014 (UTC)

The RfC is blown out of the water just as you suggested it would be. Thank you for your kind words on my Talk page. Although you are a more accomplished editor than I am, I owe you the same consideration whenever the time may come to support you in whatever venue that you think I could lend a hand.

Your valued feedback as per an article[edit]

Hermano Tony,

In June 2012, por carambola, as we would say in Spanish, I came across an article on the English language website of Wikipedia. Said article was on the immortal Sonora Matancera. It was a short essay with scant data, some of which was misleading. I, therefore, took it upon myself to correct this information and, at the same time, to expand the essay in question. By December of last year I had expanded this article to seventy-eight pages. I was nearly finished with this project when a host of Wikipedia editors drastically cropped it down to seventeen pages, deleting whole sections. Admittedly, many of their edits were warranted. Many other edits, in my opinion, were not.

Some of the editors accused me of using language more appropriate to album liner notes or a fanzine. I feel such is not the case. At all times I wrote in a neutral voice even though I hold to the belief that La Sonora Matancera is not only the most important Cuban/Afro-Cuban dance band ever but the most important Latin American dance band of all time, bar none. Other editors felt that I did not source some of the data which I used. This is not so for I included information which could easily be verified by referring to a cited source. Finally, one editor called me incompetent. I may be many things but incompetent I'm not. I feel such language is out of place and unprofessional to boot.

I kindly ask you, mi hermano, time permitting, to read this essay. The copy of this article which you should look at is from December 20th and it is 259,535 bytes long (prior to the already-mentioned edits). Without knowing you, Tony the Marine, I trust your judgment. You impress me as being fair in your critiques and, as well, intelligent. Furthermore, it doesn't hurt that you are an independentista such as myself.

I have not forgotten to inform you of the title of the scholarly work that I told you about in an earlier communication. I have to look through several files in order to find this title and, in addition, the name of the writer. Trust me. I'll let you know shortly. (talk) 09:48, 17 February 2014 (UTC)Alan1-11-51


Hello Tony,

My name is Greg Boudonck and I now reside here in Puerto Rico with my lovely Boricuan wife. We are both writers ourselves and have been publishing books(bilingual) on the pueblos of Puerto Rico. You can search my name on Amazon to see.

Currently, I am writing a book about the service Puerto Ricans have given to United States military. I am in a chapter about the 65th Infantry and found you have the copyright on an image or two I would love to use. Is it ok?

I am also requesting short interviews with members of armed force branches and was wondering if you would be willing? I have a short questionnaire. I also request a picture now and a pic in uniform.

The goal is to "awaken" Americans to the Puerto Ricans who have fought right alongside us.

I look forward to hearing back from you sir. I don't visit wikipedia regularly, so if you will please use my email:

Thank you.

P.S. I also am a freelance writer/copywriter. If you know or are aware of anyone looking for good content, I am available. I work with Zerys and also

My Wikipedia Account[edit]

Tony the Marine, I opened an account. I no longer have to sign my edits the way I previously did. I welcome your assistance in editing the article on Sonora Matancera. Thank you in advance. Hasta pronto. Alambre (talk) 00:31, 22 February 2014 (UTC)Alambre

Giving Thanks[edit]

Tony the Marine, mil y una gracias for your latest advice. Thank you, as well, for telling me to avoid an editing war with the editors who revised the article which I wrote on La Sonora Matancera. I truly appreciate all of your advice. Believe me, hermano, I do not want to engage in any editing conflicts with these individuals or with anyone else. I am open to collaborating with two of the editors that cropped my original essay. However, for whatever reason, they have not responded to the last messages which I posted to them. Either they are too busy or they are not interested. Still and all, I need to know one thing. Are you willing to work with me insofar as editing the article on La Sonora? Please let me know. Take care. Alambre (talk) 09:04, 23 February 2014 (UTC)Alambre

Oscar Garcia Rivera[edit]

Could you please explain your move, considering:

  • There's no article on any other person of the same name.
  • In none of the sources the person is referred to as "Sr." Kraxler (talk) 17:45, 7 March 2014 (UTC)
I quote from WP:NCPDAB: John F. Kennedy and John F. Kennedy, Jr. - Apparently John F. Kennedy was a Sr. also, but nobody would move the article to "John F. Kennedy, Sr." The reason is simple. He never used Sr., and never was referred to as Sr., just like Oscar Garcia Rivera. Wikipedia is based on sources, not on personal opinions and original research. I suggest you to follow the guidelines. I also suggest you read WP:OWN. Having been around for 10 years is irrelevant when it comes to discussing the merit of a question. By the way, I've been around here for 7 years myself.
Now to Oscar Garcia Rivera: The reader will see at a glance that the subject lived from 1900 to 1969, and will know exactly who he is reading about, with or without the appendix Sr in the article title. That there was a Jr. is mentioned in the text and in the infobox. If an article on the Jr. should be written (provided he is notable under the Wikipedia guidelines) the article on the Jr. should be named Oscar Garcia Rivera, Jr. A hatnote should then be appended to the article on the father, to avoid confusion. But all this only after an article on the Jr. exists. Kraxler (talk) 18:33, 7 March 2014 (UTC)
I just saw you moved it back. Thanks. Kraxler (talk) 19:03, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

Context in article "French Immigration to Puerto Rico"[edit]


I'm a Puerto Rican born in the island and living abroad. I couldn't help trying to contact someone about this because it is often the case with all the "politics" involved regarding Wiki users of seniority and those of us who just know how to make simple edits. The case and event is the absence of the surname "Pepin" in the "French Immigration to Puerto Rico" page.

It is my surname and that of my forefathers for up to 5 generations above mine, and quite possibly more.

In this link it specifies that Carlos M. Pepin was made interim mayor of Fajardo during the taking of P.R. by the U.S. My grandfather Carlos Pepin Benet (who still lives as of this date) recognizes the man mentioned in this historic document is his great-grandfather. This link is not the only time I've seen him mentioned.

I have tried to contact Salon Hogar, the people "credited" with finding these surnames, but both times I've tried I have been unsuccessful in receiving a response from them. I have also visited to their website to try to find more information.

My goal is to add the surname (my surname) Pepin to the list of immigrant French families.

I will add that I'm not versed in wiki lingo, procedures, or html so I will need some guidance.

The Bust of Capitan Correa[edit]

I am the niece of the Cuban artist Rolando Gutierrez Lopez that created/sculpted the bust of Capitan Correa you have featured in a photograph in this post. I do not understand why you claim to have created it? Please correct the information.

  • Hi Gisselle. Tony is not claiming he created the bust. In this case the word "work" refers to the photograph as a piece of work. It does not refer to the sculpture. Tony took a photograph (the piece of work) and has the right claim authorship on it (the photograph of the sculpture, not the sculpture itself). If you disagree with this I suggest you contact Wikipedia's administration at the following link: Wikipedia:Contact us. HTH, —Ahnoneemoos (talk) 03:39, 13 March 2014 (UTC)

Chandler Photos[edit]

Hi... before I go and remove a lot of the photos you've posted, be aware of the wiki policy regarding galleries. In articles, pictures should mostly be included in the body of the article, and galleries should only be there when there are significant items which couldn't be included in that format. While there are many buildings in every community of historic value, that does not make their images by default, historic. Specifically, look at WP:Gallery. You've done a lot of good work on this, but it doesn't meet the criteria of the guidelines. There's only 2 or 3 of the photos which are noteworthy enough to keep. Galleries are on Wikimedia Commons.Onel5969 (talk) 22:14, 23 March 2014 (UTC)

  • Even though I do not agree with you and certainly the Chandler Historical Society does not agree, I will not object. Just think, regardless of what WP:Gallery says, the images that I uploaded are historically significant enough for the Chandler Historical Society to have placed plaques on each of the pictured buildings. But, what the hell do I and they know, right? Tony the Marine (talk) 02:22, 24 March 2014 (UTC)
  • I removed the "not-so" historical building images from the gallery. :-) Tony the Marine (talk) 16:03, 24 March 2014 (UTC)

Puerto Rican heraldry[edit]

Tony, I just noticed we do not have an article about Puerto Rican heraldry. There are a ton of seals and other stuff related to heraldry in Puerto Rico. The governor has its own seal, and so it does the House and the Senate. The National Guard units have a ton of heraldry and so does each municipality. Do you think this is something you would be interested? I noticed we can start it off by simply copying stuff from Coat of arms of Puerto Rico. What do you think?

Regarding the book, that's fantastic! I added it to my Amazon wishlist. That's something I would love to read... when I have time!! lol.

Abrazo my friend,

Update for you on David M. Gonzales[edit]


I see that the California State Senate has an active bill to honor PFC Gonzales by naming a highway interchange in Los Angeles his honor: "David M. Gonzales Medal of Honor World War II Memorial Interchange". The bill has not yet been passed into law. Consider adding this to the article.

McCormick RR Park Picture[edit]

You say in the caption the picture (close up of a AT&SF passenger train) is HO. It's not. It's O. Don't know if you are familiar with the scales/gauges. Except for #1 or G Gauge the letters are use. "O" not "zero" etc. Anyway the pic is of the 3 rail O layout. You can tell by the third rail. Before I moved I was a member of the Scottsdale Model Railroad Club. From the picture I can't figure out which side out of frame is HO and which is N. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:53, 2 May 2014 (UTC)

  • Thank you for the correction. Yes, it is true I got my scales mixed up. I fixed the picture citation in accordance to your recommendation. Tony the Marine (talk) 03:42, 3 May 2014 (UTC)

Jose "Joey" Torres, Paterson, New Jersey's mayor-elect[edit]

I'm sorry, I must be missing something - you deleted what I thought was my very pertinent sentence about Jose "Joey" Torres - Paterson, New Jersey's new mayor-elect as of last night. It can't really go in the notable Puerto Rican New Yorker section because technically he is in New Jersey; also, there is a different Jose Torres listed in the New Yorker list. It really goes best alongside the discussion of Luis Quintana in the paragraph I had it. Was it that you needed a ref? I can easily obtain one if that's the issue. Best, Castncoot (talk) 02:56, 15 May 2014 (UTC)

  • No problem at all. Add the name of Jose "Joey" Torres where it was in the "Puerto Rican migration to New York City" article. Just remember to add a verifiable reliable source that states that he is of Puerto Rican heritage and that he served as mayor. I have written over 600 Puerto Rican articles and sometimes it is a little difficult to keep "tabs" on all of them. Take care. Tony the Marine (talk) 04:36, 15 May 2014 (UTC)

Two prior Dispute Resolution Notices (DRs) that were TOTALLY ignored[edit]

The problem Tony, is that Rococo has opened two prior DRs, not gotten his way in either of them, and then proceeded to do PRECISELY what the first DR (opened by him) told him NOT to do.

He has now recruited 3 or 4 more editors onto his side, and they opened up this Mediation. If he loses THIS one, he will simply ignore it again. Rococo is also a LIAR who blatantly accuses other editors of things that are UNTRUE, and could lead to disciplinary action if they were true. The lies are quite pathetic, because they are glaringly and very obviously contradicted by the edit history. He is a lying, bad faith, internet adolescent who respects no one that disagrees with him. After two weeks of this, I can't be bothered with this sociopathic idiot anymore.

I will edit the OLR page responsibly, with sources, and expect others to do the same. I have NO time for these games. At some point, Rococo may face discipline (a topic or site ban), and that's that.

Honor Memorial Day and updates[edit]

Thank you for your service. -- I could not find you as User:Tony, but today I did via 'Puerto Rico’ as my Marine.

Six of my Puerto Rico on stamps images got blown off the page as Non-free content (NFC) by Werieth, along with other stamps in two articles that I originated, Commemoration of the American Civil War on postage stamps and Territories of the United States on stamps. However, three months later, for first one and now three NFC images exist at History of Virginia on stamps. I was able to overcome his objections at Wikipedia talk:Non-free content with a Request for Comment, but I secured the help of administrator Masem only by noting the three were only 2% of the article scope of stamps pictured. At ‘Puerto Rico on stamps’ the modern, post 1978, USPS, Non-free content copyrighted images --- would be more like 50% of the stamps discussed, since Philafrenzy broke my contributions away from Postage stamps and postal history of Puerto Rico in an effort to save the NFC stamp images.

On another front, I’ll update List of people on stamps of Puerto Rico to include Jose Ferrer, and the Puerto Rican flag from the ‘Flags of our Nation’ series (55 flags include all five inhabited territories with territorial representation in Congress). Also, the USPS issued a commemorative of Christopher Columbus landing at Puerto Rico on the 500th anniversary, so I would like to pair that with the Spanish issue on the 400th anniversary…with a visual presentation.

I’m not sure how to proceed, but I wanted you to know I have not abandoned my little side project to bring all Puerto Rico on stamps to light on Wikipedia. All of my Puerto Rican uploads have since been removed as ‘orphans’, so that must be redone in the event using the resources at the National Postal Museum online, Arago: people, postage & the post. The principle hurdle will be satisfying reviewing editors that the use of the images meet Non-free content criteria, NFCC #3 limited use, and NFCC #8 contextual significance, for the topical philately article Puerto Rico on stamps, without getting bogged down in discussions about concert photos, magazine covers and movie posters. More later. TheVirginiaHistorian (talk) 13:40, 27 May 2014 (UTC)

Tony, A picture of Cacique Hayuya is located at a government website, Monument al Cacique Hayuya, it says, "Este monumento fue donado al pueblo de Jayuya, por el Centro Cultural Jayuyano, el 9 de noviembre de 1969.” Does that not release the art from copyright into the public domain? Not trying to cause trouble, just asking. If your photo is not allowed —it is the better of the two--, is a cropped picture of the government photo allowed?
Also, at [3], it says, "In addition, any public artwork installed before 1978 without a copyright notice is also in the public domain (unless the copyright owner actively prevented anyone from copying or photographing the work until 1978). In these situations, document the date of installation and the creator (sculptor) of the pictured work as much as possible."
So the town, the building, it was donated in 1969, and the fact the statue was donated to the public, all need to be included for reference to establish it is not under copyright, and the photo can be used at WP. TheVirginiaHistorian (talk) 19:27, 31 May 2014 (UTC)
US monuments from 1969 are only copyrighted in the United States if they contain a visible copyright notice. I do not see a copyright notice at this photograph. I don't know if there might be one elsewhere on the monument. --Stefan2 (talk) 20:44, 31 May 2014 (UTC)
Well, it was donated to the people of Jayuya for the Jayuyano Cultural Center, maybe Tony can check on the monument and at the Center for additional documentation...but that it "was donated to the public" as reported on the government website seems to me on the face of it to indicate the statue is not copyrighted. Is more time allowed for additional follow-up? TheVirginiaHistorian (talk) 21:10, 31 May 2014 (UTC)

Joaquín Santiago[edit]

Most of the sources that were already in the article didn't mention Joaquín at all, and a quick Google search found nothing to corroborate what was already there. Can you explain why none of the sources in the article mention a thing about him? For instance, this source from the article does not have Joaquín's name in it anywhere.

So long as you know the date of the newspaper articles, and the newspaper they came from, you can cite them in the article via {{cite news}}. Ideally, you can use the |quote= parameter and include quotes from the articles in your citations too. Ten Pound Hammer(What did I screw up now?) 02:37, 8 June 2014 (UTC)

  • Editing an article on someone you know personally is not inherently COI. If you have any sources for which you do have the authorship and origin, then you're most certainly welcome to add them, and I doubt anyone will cry COI since you're editing in good faith.

Changing editor's comments[edit]

Hi, Marine. In this recent talk page edit you put your comments alongside my comments, without signing yours. The result was confusing. For an incoming readers, it's not clear that I am not the one saying that things. Would you fix that? (I haven't reverted it yet) --damiens.rf 13:10, 14 June 2014 (UTC)

Also, your edit broke the numbering of the numbered items. Please the more care with that. You're an experienced editor. --damiens.rf 13:12, 14 June 2014 (UTC)

Your father[edit]

It's unfortunate yet unsurprising that an administrator decided to ignore consensus and delete the article. Perhaps you could re-create the article as a sub-page of your user-page. This would allow those interested in Puerto Rican history to learn about the topic, while keeping you free from conflict-of-interest guidelines that would apply in article-space.

File:Tempe-D.J. Frankenberg House-1915.jpg[edit]

Could you take a look at this file? It currently says "Listed in the National Register of Historic Places on January 2, 2008 reference #07001333." The first two digits in the reference number seems to be a two-digit year, but it doesn't match with the year of listing. This suggests that either the date or the reference number is wrong, but I have no idea how to tell which of them. --Stefan2 (talk) 22:13, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

Hello Stefan2
The date in the which the property was listed was January 2, 2008. I couldn't find the National Register of Historical Places reference and therefore I relied on what was posted here: National Register of Historic Places listings in Maricopa County, Arizona and here: [[4]] which listed it as "#07001333".

That's strange. Maybe 07 is the year when the National Park Service decided to list this house. 2 January is very early in the year, and it takes some time to produce a plaque, so the decision may have been taken a few days earlier (i.e. during the previous year). --Stefan2 (talk) 10:43, 3 July 2014 (UTC)
