Thanks for the barnstar!! I had those articles saved for a long time and just decided to expand the article, as I plan on expanding the California Gurls article and include information about the remix w/ Cali Swag District, and I knew it would drive traffic to the article, so I wanted to fix them up so they would look decent Lol! Thanks again. happy editing! Candyo32 (talk) 21:50, 8 July 2010 (UTC)

Alright, thanks for letting me know! The picture is fine but the user uploaded it the totally wrong way. It is a promo image, and the user uploaded it as if they created it themselves. But it is a promo photo of the group and should go under that licensing next time uploaded. But one thing I would like to point out, to increase the article's quality or as some would call it, wikify the live performances section more prose-like as seen in an article such as I Invented Sex, because eventually when the it has peaked, and done whatever it should go up for GA. & Btw, a quote about the article will appear on the Wiki homepage soon, see here! And I do plan on wikifying their main article to, I just haven't started yet. Candyo32 (talk) 16:39, 14 July 2010 (UTC)
Did you see the article under the did you know section on the front page today? It got 1.3k views! Candyo32 (talk) 03:52, 18 July 2010 (UTC)
Well, thats cool! I noticed that the TMHTD page got 1,300 views yesterday and the CSD page got 1,000, both of which are more then double the norm. Great job! I believe we will see another bump in mid-September when The Kickback drops. :) AlaskaMike (talk) 18:15, 18 July 2010 (UTC)

Admin help, please[edit]

{{adminhelp}} I see that a photo on the Cali Swag District page has been tagged as showing no proof of permission. I disagree, but it would be helpful for an admin, here or on Wikimedia Commons, to examine the issue. I did not upload the photo, and do not own it, but I did add it to the Cali Swag District page because it was available in Wikimedia Commons at the time without the tag it has now. The photo, File:CaliSwagPressPhoto.jpg, was placed on Wikipedia by CaliSwagDistrict, who appeared to own the photo at the time they did so. I've added many photos of my own, and released them into the public domain as you can see on my user page. But in this case I'd like an admin to examine the issue since I have no connection to this photo. Thanks for your help! Michaelh2001 (talk) 17:11, 10 July 2010 (UTC)

The file is on Commons, so you'll have to handle the issue there. Wikipedia and Commons are very much independent of one another, so there is not really anything admin at this project can do. AJCham 17:25, 10 July 2010 (UTC)

Clickable nickname[edit]

{{helpme}} I changed my preferences so that my nickname appears whenever I sign with 4 tilde's, such as on a talkpage. How do I make that nickname clickable, so that clicking it leads the "clickee" to my user page? Thanks for any help. AlaskaMike 16:53, 14 July 2010 (UTC)

In "my preferences", "signature", you need to un-check the box that says, "Treat the above as wiki markup."
If you still have trouble, please ask again. Cheers,  Chzz  ►  17:04, 14 July 2010 (UTC)

I noticed the photos that I added to Homer, Alaska of City Hall and the courthouse, which were working fine when I added them, are not loading now. There is a strange line in place of the photo, but if you click on that line you get the photo. Anyone know whats going on? AlaskaMike (talk) 13:38, 19 August 2010 (UTC)

Spring Creek Correctional Center[edit]

Hmm. Fair point. I don't know. You might ask User:Bleaney who assessed it that way,[1] or if you think the assessment is faulty, I suggest changing it to what you think is appropriate. Best of luck. Regards.--Cdogsimmons (talk) 01:04, 21 July 2010 (UTC)

  • I worked on it a little bit, but I also moved the images to Commons and linked it from more pages. WhisperToMe (talk) 22:22, 15 August 2010 (UTC)

Photo requests[edit]

Do you take photo requests in Anchorage and other places in Alaska? WhisperToMe (talk) 22:23, 15 August 2010 (UTC)

I had in mind some places within Anchorage:

  • Town center
    • State of Alaska government offices - 550 West 7th Avenue, Anchorage, AK
    • ConocoPhillips Alaska offices - 700 G Street, Anchorage, AK, 99501
  • By the airport
    • Alaska Airlines Alaska offices - 4750 Old International Airport Road, Anchorage, AK 99502
    • ACE Air Cargo offices - 5901 Lockheed Ave. Anchorage Alaska 99502
    • Era Aviation - 6160 Carl Brady Drive Anchorage, AK 99502
    • PenAir - 6100 Boeing Ave. Anchorage, AK 99502

Within Homer these would be nice:

City government

  • Homer City Hall - 491 East Pioneer Avenue, Homer, AK‎
  • Homer City Library - 500 Hazel Avenue Homer, AK 99603
  • Homer Police Department - 4060 Heath Street, Homer, AK‎
  • Homer Volunteer Fire Department - 604 E Pioneer Avenue Homer, AK 99603
  • Homer Public Works - 3575 Heath Street, Homer, AK


  • Homer High School - 600 E Fairview Ave Homer, AK, 99603 - There is already File:Homerhigh.JPG - But if you want, why not get other shots with a broader view and/or straightened out
  • Homer Middle School - 500 Sterling Hwy, Homer, AK, 99603

Post offices

  • Homer Post Office - 3658 Heath Street

WhisperToMe (talk) 03:25, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

  • Oh, don't worry, I won't ask for any more photos of them - Wikimedia Commons has plenty of photos of them anyway ;) WhisperToMe (talk) 03:47, 16 August 2010 (UTC)
Thank you for your photos! Please send me an e-mail of the Homer PO. That way it will be on the Commons, even if there isn't enough space for it to be in the main Homer, Alaska article. WhisperToMe (talk) 00:34, 18 August 2010 (UTC)
Hope you don't mind, I took the liberty of moving your images of Homer buildings to Commons so that other projects can use them. I'm not sure some of these other suggestions would be particularly useful, the public works building in particular is not real photogenic. There is already a picture of the library at File:Homerlibrary.JPG, although it is a few years old and there is that new sign on the side of it now. Glad to know there is another Wikipedian in town, let me know if I can be of any assistance. Beeblebrox (talk) 02:05, 18 August 2010 (UTC)
Actually another one of mine that is not so great but is being used in an article is File:Prattmuseum.JPG. It's a tough building to shoot because there are trees all around it, and I am by no means an expert photographer. Beeblebrox (talk) 02:11, 18 August 2010 (UTC)
I acknowledge that many buildings may not be photogenic, but I believe that they are still of importance no matter how pretty or ugly they are. When going to some places I always try to get city halls, post offices, etc. no matter how pretty or ugly they are. WhisperToMe (talk) 03:58, 18 August 2010 (UTC)
Well, I don't want to make a big thing out of this but your belief that a photo of a small town public works building is important to the article is probably not one with broad support. There are already numerous photos of actual landmarks in Homer that visitors or those curious about the town are likely to be interested in. Beeblebrox (talk) 16:10, 19 August 2010 (UTC)

The Kickback (album)[edit]

I highly disagree with you on the fact the album has "enough information to warrant its own page". Now that the release date has been pushed back indefinitely, there is no need for this now.

Fair use rationale for File:Fourpeaked-map1.jpg.JPG[edit]


Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Fourpeaked-map1.jpg.JPG. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the file description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 16:30, 8 November 2010 (UTC)

Happy New Year, Mike! Oh, yes, it would be great if you had people photos to match up with some of the various cultures in your fab state. I was over at the Galleria over Christmas and it's all fine now, but it sure was a nasty set-back for the area. There was a huge sign over by Penneys, something like, "We're open now!". I'll look over the article. --Rosiestep (talk) 06:25, 8 January 2011 (UTC)

Hi Mike! Hope you like your new digs. I've never been to that part of Alaska but I understand it's really nice. No worries about the photos. Good stuff on your contributions. I hope you're ok with my latest addition, Juneau-Douglas Bridge, a spin-off on the Douglas Island article you've been working on. I'll give it more attention tomorrow and feel free to join in if you wish. I think there's enough material to get it to DYK in the next day or two. If you want to collaborate on others, especially if there's enough material to meet DYK criteria, just let me know. Cheers, --Rosiestep (talk) 04:29, 27 February 2011 (UTC)

Can you take a look at the Juneau-Douglas Bridge talk page? It appears he makes a good point. So what is the appropriate way to differentiate between the city of Juneau on the mainland (do you call it "downtown"?), vs. the borough which includes the island? Thanks. --Rosiestep (talk) 15:02, 2 March 2011 (UTC)

Libyan no-fly zone operation merger proposal[edit]

Why have you decided to close the merger proposal? It has only been discussed for 1-2 days which is hardly sufficient time to claim that a consensus has been reached and the discussion is closed. Give it a week and we can see how things in Libya have played out by then and if a merger is appropriate or not. Mztourist (talk) 02:02, 21 March 2011 (UTC)

There was quick, clear and decisive consensus on the matter when the issue was discussed on the Merger Project Page, which lasted for nine days before it was closed there by another editor. There was no need to rehash it all over again every time on every article. In the future, please READ the given reasons and research it further before posting to User Talk Pages. Thanks. AlaskaMike (talk) 16:23, 25 March 2011 (UTC)

Kevin Federline[edit]

Yeah, I think "Satire" as a section doesn't need to be in the article. If the 2-3 sentences of that section are actually noteworthy, and I'm dubious on that point, they could be incorporated within the article itself. For example, Fed-Ex could be mentioned with the part that he is divorced from Brittany. --Rosiestep (talk) 17:33, 16 April 2011 (UTC) The Z Efron endorsement seems fine to me. --Rosiestep (talk) 16:37, 23 April 2011 (UTC)

re: Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge[edit]

Hey Michaelh2001,

Please forgive me if I'm rehashing information that you already know, but the purpose of my edit was to express the fact that the monarch of the United Kingdom is also the monarch of fifteen other countries independent of the UK, ie Commonwealth realms. This is a different situation from that of England, Scotland, Wales, etc, which are all part of the United Kingdom. (At least that's my understanding of the political situation, given that I'm a US citizen who doesn't have that much personal experience with the Commonwealth) Having said that, I'm glad that we both agree that the outcome of my edit is legitimate.

Cali Swag District[edit]

Okay, nothing in the source you have provided even mentions the word "single". It just says a "tribute song" not "single". Therefore, it shouldn't be listed as a single. EnDaLeCoMpLeX (contributions) • (let's chat) 14:43, 27 May 2011 (UTC)

Ditto to you, amigo. The bees knees? Seriously? AlaskaMike (talk) 04:37, 28 May 2011 (UTC)

I looked at the MM/actor article and talk page. The article definitely needs wording cleanup, as well as references in all/most of the paragraphs as it's a BLP, held to a much higher standard. Without inline citations that I can double check, I'm not sure if the article does or doesn't meet notability guidelines. Let me know if you or someone else gives it a brush up. --Rosiestep (talk) 02:14, 11 June 2011 (UTC)

There was some vandalism on the Cali Swag District page. I've fixed most of it, but cannot figure out exactly what is wrong with the "promotional singles" table.

Also, vandalism on this page is becoming more and more common. Can we make it so that only auto-confirmed users can edit it? A review of the edit summary will reveal a lot of vandalism. Thanks! AlaskaMike (talk) 17:37, 29 July 2011 (UTC)

Juneau Raptor Center[edit]

Cool article... and they're doing great things at the center. Good job! --Rosiestep (talk) 03:05, 11 January 2013 (UTC)

First, good job!! I did take a look at the nom, and it needed some minor fixes but it's fine now. As for the hook, each part of it should be mentioned in the article, with an inline citation at the end of the sentence(s). For example, if part of the hook ("is run by an all-volunteer staff ") is in one sentence within the article, then that sentence needs an inline citation at the end of the sentence. If "treats any species of bird brought to them for treatment" is mentioned elsewhere in the article, again, make sure you have an inline citation at the end of that sentence within the rticle. Someone may criticize the article's ref format; so maybe consider using cite news? --Rosiestep (talk) 00:52, 14 January 2013 (UTC)

Help, regarding DYK? nominated article[edit]

Pictogram resolved.svg
This help request has been answered. If you need more help, please place a new {{help me}} request on this page followed by your questions, or contact the responding user(s) directly on their user talk page.

Hi everyone, I am looking for help on an article I created on Jan. 10th, Juneau Raptor Center. An administrator I frequently collaborate with made some suggestions, but I would love more feedback. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

In the past two days I've done the following:

1) Reworked some of the sentence structures for clarity. 2) Added inline citations for the DYK? hooks. (It never hurts to have more refs! :-) 3) Corrected some errors in the refs (Those without author names have unsigned bylines) 4) Added a photo to the infobox, from the Wikimedia Commons. 5) Added the name of the organizations president to the infobox, per the reference on donated food.

Anything else you can recommend, either to meet DYK? criteria or just to make the article a little better in general, let me know. I won't take it personally! :-)

For reference, the Did You Know? Nomination is here:

AlaskaMike (talk) 23:10, 15 January 2013 (UTC)

If I were to offer criticism, I'd say the article relies too heavily on sources written by the JRC's own president, Sandy Harbanuk, and goes into far too much detail when devoting entire paragraphs to the latest rescues' individual fates. Surely there's no need to discuss every single thrush and swallow. Huon (talk) 00:37, 16 January 2013 (UTC)
Interesting. There was only one, non-controversial contribution (regarding the donation of food) made referencing Janet Capito (not Sandy Harbanuk, as Huon stated) Also, the bird references were chosen to illustrate the fact that numerous species of birds are helped by the Center, not just raptors. I can see this avenue will not be helpful, so I'm closing it. Thanks to all who read the article. AlaskaMike (talk) 02:18, 16 January 2013 (UTC)
While I wrongly believed there was more than one source by Harbanuk (no idea how I screwed up counting beyond "1"), I was referring to the fifth source, Raptor center treats more than 200 birds every year, written by Harbanuk who according to that very article "has volunteered in rehabilitation and education for the Juneau Raptor Center for nine years, and is its president."

HI Mike. Thanks for pointing me to Miriam Schlein; didn't know about her before but now I do. :) I've also been working on women's biographies, a lot. At first, it was because of the ArtAndFeminism drive, and now in honor of Women's History Month (March). I'm aghast at the scarcity of women's biographies vs. those of men. Math, science, film, dance, sculpting... you name it. I've been translating es wiki bios to the en wiki. One or two are at DYK now but I think we're holding them for March. Work has been busy... same o' same o'. Has the thaw started in Juneau? --Rosiestep (talk) 02:51, 28 February 2014 (UTC)

Klos C[edit]

Klos C is a cool article! Regarding review/promotion speed, shorter dyk articles often seem to move along faster than the longer ones, and it makes sense... less to double-check/triple-check. Congrats! --Rosiestep (talk) 16:26, 22 March 2014 (UTC)

Just had a chance to look at and it's coming along nicely. Keep it up, Mike! How's the weather in your neck of the woods? --Rosiestep (talk) 01:09, 24 May 2014 (UTC)

ADN name change[edit]

Oh boy, now I started something. Notice that my statement contained plenty of qualifiers. Most, but not all, of my experience with what I'm talking about comes from dealing with professional wrestling biography articles. A wrestler spends years and years working main events around the country or world under a certain name, then gets signed by WWE. Almost immediately, editors start clamoring for a page move to whatever different name the WWE has given them for trademark purposes. See Dutch Mantel for an example of where this strategy didn't work. The kind of crowds that wrestling consistently drew in Memphis and Puerto Rico when he was on top were nothing to laugh at. Looking at the ADN, I see 65+ years as the Anchorage Daily News, versus one day of the physical paper being Alaska Dispatch News, plus however many days or weeks it's been that that the website has borne the latter name. People on the streets will continue to refer to it as the Anchorage Daily News for years to come, regardless of the name change. That is the difference between a common name and an official name. A common name isn't unilaterally established by corporate fiat, unless it were to take hold amongst the public. RadioKAOS / Talk to me, Billy / Transmissions 07:48, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

Postscript: I see that the Associated Press hasn't yet become accustomed to the new name. The second sentence of this story begins with "The Alaska News Dispatch". RadioKAOS / Talk to me, Billy / Transmissions 16:27, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
I would offer Willis Tower as an example here. Long established name as the Sears Tower, quick name change, still called Sears Tower by many. But the Wikipedia page for it is Willis Tower. In the case of the ADN, I added that it was formerly known as the Anchorage Daily News... Juneau Mike (talk) 23:35, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
I hope my edits to the "controversies" section were acceptable. When I get time, I'll see if I can replace the Holthouse story with something that comports better with Wikipedia guidelines. Activist (talk) 06:55, 22 July 2014 (UTC)


Hi Mike, I looked at it and here are my thoughts. First, those were good improvements. The word "currently" is unnecessary in the lede. The 1st sentence of paragraph 2 is a bit clunky; maybe re-word. Also, I wonder if "Musical Explorations with Lucille and Grandpa" is less known vs. just less popular (a ref would help)? And now a plug for my new baby, WP:WikiProject Women writers, which is 8 days old... Plus, do you know of any women writers from Alaska (or anywhere else on the planet) who don't have an article yet but should, or have an article which needs improvement? If yes, let's work on it; or bring it over to the WikiProject and maybe someone else will. Thanks!--Rosiestep (talk) 15:07, 7 September 2014 (UTC)

(talk page stalker)Given enough time, I could give you a laundry list of names. Betsy Tower (historical biographer) and Edna Wilder (who wrote mostly about the Native culture of her upbringing) came immediately to mind when I read this.
