WZTV[edit]

Please stop reverting the WZTV article. The station signed on in 1968, not 1969. [1] --Zpb52 06:01, 6 March 2006 (UTC)

WSFA[edit]

Stop removing all the pictures that were on WSFA's page. Everything was fine the way it was until you came along destroying it! —Preceding unsigned comment added by News2add (talkcontribs) 14:00, 2 January 2009 (UTC)

Advocate request[edit]

Do you want me to be your advocate? Does the station's web site confirm your date?

I will be glad to work with you if you have a source, which it appears that you do. Robert McClenon 02:55, 7 March 2006 (UTC)

Independent source confirming WZTV sign-on[edit]

WZTV was formerly WMCV-TV. Here is an independent site which lends itself to the 1968 date. It states a certain person, Ken Bramming, was employed by and appeared on the station from October 1968 to November 1969 [2].

After it's cancellation in 1967 Bramming took a radio announcing job, but re-emerged as Dr. Lucifer between Oct. 1968 and Nov. 1969 on WMCV-TV17, and independent station, to host weekend horror movies.

This should provide another source which would not have supplied the Wikipedia clones with an actual sign-on date, but it confirms the station was on the air before 8/5/1969. --Zpb52 03:44, 7 March 2006 (UTC)

WPLN-FM[edit]

I left the "W" off the Category:Radio stations in Tennessee for WPLN-FM because all radio stations in Tennessee begin with a W. If we put them all in the W heading, the category wouldn't well organize the stations, don't you think? --Zpb52 00:17, 16 March 2006 (UTC)

Dates[edit]

Hi, it's not usual to link to months, or indeed years unless there's a good reason. Dates which include a day and month, and formatting preferences will be invoked by linking it, e.g. 10 April 1962, however usually are linked: see WP:DATE fro more detail . Regards, Rich Farmbrough 11:24 15 June 2006 (GMT).

<BR> tags[edit]

You don't need to use <BR> tags in Wikipedia to separate paragraphs. Just put a blank line between the 2 paragraphs

like so. Kaldari 05:41, 25 July 2006 (UTC)

License tagging for Image:Brinkleynbcnightlynews.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Brinkleynbcnightlynews.jpg. Wikipedia gets thousands of images uploaded every day, and in order to verify that the images can be legally used on Wikipedia, the source and copyright status must be indicated. Images need to have an image tag applied to the image description page indicating the copyright status of the image. This uniform and easy-to-understand method of indicating the license status allows potential re-users of the images to know what they are allowed to do with the images.

For more information on using images, see the following pages:

Succession box for WCLV[edit]

Use of succession boxes[edit]

I don't understand your use of succession boxes on some of the Cleveland radio stations. For example, why are there succession boxes for 96.5 and 98.1 FM on the WCLV page, when WCLV was never on either 96.5 or 98.1? --Hillrhpc 02:42, 22 January 2007 (UTC)

Let's Make a Deal[edit]

Hello Mtstroud, I reverted your edit on the scheduling section of LMAD because of its wordiness, the inclusion of the TV shows it ran against (not really necessary nor appropriate for an encyclopedia article - takes away from the main focus of the article), and it was unsourced. This information would be much better for a fan website. Please check out "Wikipedia is not an indiscriminate collection of information" for rationale on the reversion. Thanks! --Goldrushcavi 04:55, 20 February 2007 (UTC)

I completely understand your wanting to include the information and why you consider it important, but it is also unsourced and as such falls under original research, which is also not allowed. I don't know who we're supposed to "go before" if we have a disagreement (I know it's somewhere in the Wikipedia manual), but this would be a good opportunity to do so. -Goldrushcavi 21:25, 20 February 2007 (UTC)

Image:Wkrg5013074.jpg listed for deletion[edit]

An image or media file that you uploaded or altered, Image:Wkrg5013074.jpg, has been listed at Wikipedia:Images and media for deletion. Please look there to see why this is (you may have to search for the title of the image to find its entry), if you are interested in it not being deleted. Thank you. Blaxthos 07:01, 11 March 2007 (UTC)

  • Personally, I cannot see why TV Guide, its present owners News Corp, or the television stations would press charges against Wikipedia for a harmless historical referent such as these images, as they certainly have no conceivable negative impact upon the sales of the magazine currently or upon station viewership. In fact, TV Guide has discontinued local station listings, in favor of broadcast and cable networks only, so I contend the copyright infringement charge to be a moot one.

What is telling about Blaxthos' accusation is that he believes them not "inherently notable." This, to me, is a subjective value judgment that runs counter to this website's encouragement of free expression within reasonable limits. I know that graphic storage space on Wikipedia is certainly not unlimited, and that priorities must be made, but I know that there must be far worthier targets of a purge (actual plagiarism, etc.). I suspect the user is acting from petty or malicious motivation. I intend to contest this blacklisting to the highest court of appeal, if necessary. If I passively accept his/her arbitrary judgment and the images get deleted, it is likely no one will be safe from him/her in the future.Mike 14:12, 11 March 2007 (UTC)

Please check out the following policies, which may help you understand our rules regarding acceptable content and expected behavior.
I hope this helps smooth out the wrinkles.  :-) /Blaxthos 18:50, 11 March 2007 (UTC)
  • Perhaps I overstepped permissible good taste in making the accusation against you, but before you proceed to delete these images, which I now realize I can do nothing about, apparently, may I ask whether you have done this also to others? That is, have you removed other images of past television station logos AND notified the respective editors of your rationale, as you did to me? If so, then you have satisfied the criteria of fairness. Otherwise, I will continue to pursue my protest against this. At least you must recognize that I clearly intended no intellectual or financial infringement upon News Corp, Annenberg, or other entities related to TV Guide magazine, past or present.

In my opinion, the rules regarding copyright are entirely too complicated to expect an average user to become intimately familiar with. I reckon the best way to deal with the issue would be for the Wikipedia board to simply eat crow and acknowledge that their wide-open policy is a failure. Perhaps an online course and quiz could be administered to potential editors beforehand, in order to make them aware of these policies. As it stands now, they are frustrating and thus have an inhibiting effect.

I await your response.Mike 21:27, 11 March 2007 (UTC)

To be clear, I make no assertion that you acted in bad faith, or had any willful intent to infringe upon any any copyrights. I am simply applying the rules as I understand them. Also, to be fair, I am not an administrator and have no ability to delete images or articles. The IFD/AFD process ensures that concerned editors may voice their opinions and a legal WP:CONSENSUS is reached. Instead of calling upon the Wikipedia board to simply eat crow and acknowledge that their wide-open policy is a failure I will simply try to abide by the rules set forth -- as you said yourself, the rules regarding copyright are entirely too complicated, which also means there is probably a reason for them that one may not appreciate. In such a case, it's better to follow the rules than to fight them. I know your intent was in the right place, but wikipedia isn't the place for everything that's ever happened on earth. Again, no personal offense was intended. /Blaxthos 00:25, 12 March 2007 (UTC)

Invitation[edit]

You are cordially invited to participate in WikiProject Calvinism

The goal of WikiProject Calvinism is to improve the quality and quantity of information about Calvinism available on Wikipedia. WP:WikiProject Calvinism as a group does not prefer any particular tradition or denominination of Calvinism, but prefers that all Calvinist traditions are fairly and accurately represented.

John Calvin - Young.jpg

--Flex (talk|contribs) 16:02, 24 March 2007 (UTC)

Invitation declined. Please leave me alone.Mike 16:36, 24 March 2007 (UTC)


Barth[edit]

Please see Talk:Karl_Barth#Neutrality. Barth is also being considered for removal from Template:Calvinism (against what I take to be the neutral position of keeping him). You may shed some light there. --Flex (talk|contribs) 22:59, 31 March 2007 (UTC)

I suspect my editing earlier today (Saturday, March 31) probably has convinced you and others that Barth is most certainly not a conservative Calvinist thinker, which that category almost entirely consists of otherwise. I would say that you would likely be justified in doing so, and that his devotees, such as myself, would not be particularly displeased. Thanks for your question.Mike 23:04, 31 March 2007 (UTC)

Orphaned fair use image (Image:Krcg130427050374jpg.jpg)[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Krcg130427050374jpg.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable under fair use (see our fair use policy).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' 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 "Image" from the dropdown box.

Image:Chancellornightlynewsdesk.jpg[edit]

I have tagged Image:Chancellornightlynewsdesk.jpg as {{orphaned fairuse}}. In order for the image to be kept at Wikipedia, it must be included in at least one article. If this image is being used as a link target instead of displayed inline, please add {{not orphan}} to the image description page to prevent it being accidentally marked as orphaned again. User:Gay Cdn (talk) (Contr) 01:46, 11 May 2007 (UTC)

Go ahead and delete now if you wish; I replaced the photo with a better one for the Chancellor article.Mike 02:34, 11 May 2007 (UTC)

Default sort[edit]

Hi, I noticed you are adding piped sort orders to some article's categories that don't need them. The {{DEFAULTSORT}} template is already present on some of these articles, so you don't need to spend your energy adding sort orders to all those categories. I hope that saves you some work. Thanks! Katr67 18:15, 15 May 2007 (UTC)

Steve Cohen[edit]

Hi Mtstroud. Regarding your recent edit to Steve Cohen, I think that the information is better suited for this article: Tennessee's 9th congressional district. The edits do not appear to discuss Cohen very much, but rather his Congressional district. Thus, if you can provide reliable sources for the edits, please add them to the district article instead, as the information would be very useful there. Thanks and keep up the good work! · jersyko talk 13:53, 20 May 2007 (UTC)

Good Edits[edit]

Hey there Mt... I saw your recent edits on United Church of Christ. Good job! Shalom, MPS 03:19, 30 May 2007 (UTC)

Jeopardy!/Jeopardy! broadcast history[edit]

Hi-- The Jeopardy! broadcast history article was created because the main article was getting too long. I see you've been reintroducing material back into the main article from the broadcast history article. Did any discussion take place on these edits? Because they seem to be countercurrent to the general intent of the article histories. Robert K S 00:23, 15 July 2007 (UTC)

I really don't understand what you are accusing me of; you should have a particular fact in mind before you bring things like this up. As I understand things, discussion is not required in order to participate in Wikipedia; if you do not like something, delete it.Mike 01:48, 15 July 2007 (UTC)
Not accusing, just alerting. Discussion is in fact central to participation in Wikipedia in order to build consensus and permit articles to evolve in meaningful ways. There is, of course, WP:BB, which may be what you're referring to. But if everyone followed WP:BB, then any contentious edit would result in an edit war, which is what we try to avoid. Cheers, Robert K S 15:30, 15 July 2007 (UTC)

Sources for your Tennessee political articles?[edit]

Hi. You've put much effort into expanding articles like Tennessee's 3rd congressional district, but I can't figure out what your sources were... Did you use the Almanac of American Politics, or ??? --orlady 16:56, 24 July 2007 (UTC)

I have read AAP as one source, yes, albeit past editions and not the current one. I have used also my general knowledge about Tennessee politics, although I admit I have never lived in the region you mention about. I resided for years in the neighboring 4th District, however, and am very well acquainted with the folkways and preferences of the voters there, which are not dissimilar at all to those in the 3rd, even residents of the Chattanooga area. The 3rd is in keeping, for the most part, with the Deep South's increasing exclusive identification with the Republican Party, above all else.Mike 18:54, 24 July 2007 (UTC)

TN-7[edit]

Ed Bryant lived in a Jackson suburb when he represented the 7th ... and I was under the assumption that Lexington and a few other areas were more in the orbit of Jackson than Memphis--that's why I mentioned that the Jackson suburbs are part of the dominant bloc in that district.

United Presbyterian Church in the United States of America edit reverted[edit]

I reverted your unexplained edit to United Presbyterian Church in the United States of America. Feel free to restore your edit but please explain why the text should be removed. davidwr/(talk)/(contribs)/(e-mail) 01:43, 7 August 2008 (UTC)

There is nothing particularly historically significant about Ward Church that merits its being included as a unique example of an EPC congregation. By that, I mean that it is obscure to a vast majority, if not all, readers, unlike, say, the National Presbyterian Church in Washington. In other words, singling out that particular church has far less of a rationale than does my deleting it.Mike (talk) 03:01, 7 August 2008 (UTC)

  • That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's description page for each article the image is used in.
  • That every article it is used on is linked to from its description page.

Proposed deletion of Richard_Hackett[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Richard_Hackett has been proposed for deletion. The proposed-deletion notice added to the article should explain why.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{dated prod}} will stop the Proposed Deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. The Speedy Deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and Articles for Deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.Stationary (talk) 19:53, 16 December 2009 (UTC)

ETPtv[edit]

Information.svg Hi, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you recently tried to give ETPtv a different title by copying its content and pasting either the same content, or an edited version of it, into another page with a different name. This is known as a "cut and paste move", and it is undesirable because it splits the page history, which is needed for attribution and various other purposes. Instead, the software used by Wikipedia has a feature that allows pages to be moved to a new title together with their edit history.

In most cases, once your account is four days old and has ten edits, you should be able to move an article yourself using the "Move" tab at the top of the page. This both preserves the page history intact and automatically creates a redirect from the old title to the new. If you cannot perform a particular page move yourself this way (e.g. because a page already exists at the target title), please follow the instructions at requested moves to have it moved by someone else. Also, if there are any other pages that you moved by copying and pasting, even if it was a long time ago, please list them at Wikipedia:Cut and paste move repair holding pen. Thank you. --Orlady (talk) 22:46, 7 August 2010 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for File:Huntleybrinkley060668.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Huntleybrinkley060668.jpg.

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.
