You userfied the deleted article "Claremont Braineaters" for me most of a year ago. I've finally gotten around to working on it, and think it should be reinstated. What do you think— start a deletion review? Recreate the article and alert the users involved in the deletion debate? There's still a thread about this on my talk page. — eitch 14:30, 27 September 2007 (UTC)

Eusebia naming query from the Llama
Hi David -- Here's what I wrote last night (and actually, I got a delivery-delay message, so I wonder if the mail ever got to you): In other excitement, having to look up the word Eusebia (Εύσέβεια) has had me on a mad, mad quest to document and disambiguate the word/name/placename in Wikipedia. The Greek concept still needs a lot of work, although I feel more ready to roll out some of the personal names, and have already incorporated the placename into an existing entry. Here's my current quandary (besides just needing mo' better sources on the Hellenic idea): what the heck do I call that entry? I'm pretty sure that "Eusebia" ought to be the disambiguation page. I can't quite figure out what to call the Greek ideal. At first I thought we were in "Eusebia (mythology)" territory, but that seems to be a pretty low priority -- more that there are occasional references to a daimon as a personification of a more important ideal. Any ideas for appropriate parenthetical clarifiers? Do you know if there's a list of clarifiers anywhere? The WP:NAME page didn't really cover that part.The disambiguation text along with several proto-entries are all crammed together in my user space: User:Kenllama/eusebia
|Hello fellow Wikipedia administrators open to recall category member!|
I am leaving you this message because recent events have given me concern. When Aaron Brenneman and I, and others, first developed this category well over a year ago, we visualized it as a simple idea. A low hassle, low bureaucracy process. We also visualized it as a process that people would come to trust, in fact as a way of increasing trust in those admins who chose to subscribe to the notion of recall. The very informal approach to who is qualified to recall, what happens during it, and the process in general were all part of that approach.
But recent events have suggested that this low structure approach may not be entirely effective. More than one of the recent recalls we have seen have been marred by controversy around what was going to happen, and when. Worse, they were marred by some folk having the perception, rightly or wrongly, that the admin being recalled was trying to change the rules, avoid the process, or in other ways somehow go back on their word. This is bad. It's bad for you the admin, bad for the trust in the process, and bad for the community as a whole.
I think a way to address this issue is to increase the predictability of the process in advance. I have tried to do that for myself. In my User:Lar/Accountability page, I have given pretty concrete definitions of the criteria for recall, and of the choices I can make, and of the process for the petition, and of the process for other choices I might make (the modified RfC or the RfAr). I think it would be very helpful if other admins who have voluntarily made themselves subject to recall went to similar detail. It is not necessary to adopt the exact same conditions, steps, criteria, etc. It's just helpful to have SOME. Those are mine, fashion yours as you see fit, I would not be so presumptuous as to say mine are right for you. In fact I urge you not to just adopt mine, as I do change them from time to time without notice, but instead develop your own. You are very welcome to start with mine if you so wish, though.
But do something. If you have not already, I urge you to make your process more concrete, now, while there is no pressure and you can think clearly about what you want. Do it now rather than later, during a recall when folk may not react well to perceived changes in process or commitment.
Further, I suggest that after you document your process, that you give a reference to it for the benefit of other admins who may want to see what others have done. List it in this table as a resource for the benefit of all. If you use someone else's by reference rather than copy, I suggest you might want to do as Cacharoth did, and give a link to a specific version.
Do you have to do these things? Not at all. These are suggestions from me, and me alone, and are entirely up to you to embrace or ignore. I just think that doing this now, thinking now, documenting now, will save you trouble later, if you should for whatever reason happen to be recalled.
I apologise if this message seems impersonal, but with over 130 members in the category, leaving a personal message for each of you might not have been feasible, and I feel this is important enough to violate social norms a bit. I hope that's OK. Thanks for your time and consideration, and best wishes.
NOTE: You are receiving this message because you are listed in the Wikipedia administrators open to recall category. This is a voluntary category, and you should not be in it if you do not want to be. If you did not list yourself, you may want to review the change records to determine who added you, and ask them why they added you.
...My guinea pigs and the "A"s through "K"s having felt this message was OK to go forward with (or at least not complained bitterly to me about it :) ), today it's the turn of the "L"s through "O"s! I'm hoping that more of you chaps/chapettes will point to their own criteria instead of mine :)... it's flattering but a bit scary! :) Also, you may want to check back to the table periodically, someone later than you in the alphabet may have come up with a nifty new idea. ++Lar: t/c 00:04, 5 January 2008 (UTC)

My page was deleted
I would like to post a page on Wikipedia of my film review website and it was deleted before I could do much with it. How can I get this page to stick and will you help me? Please? — Preceding unsigned comment added by The Porkchop Express (talk • contribs)
- It appears that Nae'blis is away on a wikibreak, so I'll field this one. If you're referring to Henson Film Critique, it was deleted because it didn't claim to be notable - that is, it didn't make a claim of importance or significance. Please read our notability policy for more information. Having examined the article, I seriously doubt that you will be able to make it "stick" - it appears to be non-notable and further appears that it would be difficult if not impossible to provide sufficient reliable sources for the article. These are the primary concerns to bear in mind when deciding how to proceed. If you have any further questions, I would be glad to answer them on my talk page. --Philosopher Let us reason together. 22:28, 1 October 2008 (UTC)
Hello. I was wondering if you'd be able to restore the file name File:Cbsdt.jpg, if i was able to place the appropriate fair use and copyright tags on it. 13:03, 17 February 2009 (UTC)

I'm reaching out to researchers and writers interested in the emerging, or re-emerging, movements inspired by ancient culture in the areas of religion/theology/mythology/culture...I spare-headed an artistic collaboration between a music professor, rock-vocalist and poet to create a modern multi-media experience of the cathardic journey inspired by ancient pagan poetic traditions; A romance to nature seen as a beautiful, divine and omnipotent woman.
It has singularly been my goal to respect tradition while allowing a free and spontaneous interpretation...I believe the utility of a quasi-rebirth of some aspects of the ancient religious tendancies would be achieved in an increase of tolerance, sympathy, and freedom of expression in our modern discoures on religion...so much needed. Until we have a cultural revolution tantamount to the politcal revolutions of the 18th and 19th centuries [aiding the rebirth of a government of, by and for the people] in the area of religion, I will not rest. Until the rebirth of religions which are of, by and for the people, as fluid as art, as deep as mythology and theology and as powerful as culture, I do not believe we will be truly free no matter what economic or political conditions surround us. Democracy without a democratic cultural is as frustrating as it is ineffectual.
If you have a moment could you peruse the poetry project site. http://www.misbeliever.net As you are a worker in these areas, having ebhanced the Wikipedia, the world's greatest encyclopedia, I would be very honored with any remarks or critisms you could offer either me or my collaborators.

Help with improving business page
Hello, my name is Matt. Found you through the WP:KC page.
I work for Cerner and would like to try and improve the company's Wikipedia entry (update information, provide additional information). I'm aware of the COI policies, as well as the option of proposing new content via the entry talk page. Curious if that is still best practice for this scenario, or if there is another process I should follow.
Thanks for your input.
