Elliott Museum Wikipedia Page Severely out of date[edit]

Please delete first section:

The Elliott Museum, located at 825 N.E. Ocean Boulevard, on Hutchinson Island near Stuart, Florida, United States, houses one of the finest collections of American antiques, decorative arts, baseball memorabilia and vintage automobiles that celebrate the Golden Age of American creativity and local and regional history.

Please replace with:

The Elliott Museum, located at 825 N.E. Ocean Boulevard, on Hutchinson Island near Stuart, Florida, United States, focuses on art, history and technology. Named after prolific inventor Sterling Elliott, the museum houses permanent collections including Model AA Trucks, early transportation, history of Stuart and surrounding regions, baseball memborabilia. In addition, the museum hosts a juried art show in the fall and a juried car show in the spring. Traveling exhibits round out the schedule.

Please delete the History section: The Elliott, as it is often called, was built in 1961 by Harmon Elliott as a tribute to his father Sterling Elliott, and on November 18, 1961, was given to the non-profit Historical Society of Martin County, which has operated it ever since. Most of the memorabilia comes from father Sterling himself. Before the donation stearling held the world record for the greatest baseball card collection in existence. Its longtime director was the late Janet Hutchinson.

In 1991, on its 30th anniversary, over 500 people gathered for the museum’s re-dedication ceremony, complete with a presentation of the Elliott tartan banner and a ribbon cutting by Lynn Elliott, great-grand daughter of Sterling Elliott, as well as an exhibition of early automobiles from the Treasure Coast Vintage Auto Club and the Daytona Antique Auto Racing Association.

Over the years the museum has expanded its facilities, public programming and members. The museum is often the setting for social events and sits among the residential and business community on Hutchinson Island.

And replace with: The Elliott, as it is often called, was built in 1961 by Harmon Elliott as a tribute to his father Sterling Elliott, and on November 18, 1961, was given to the non-profit Historical Society of Martin County, which has operated it ever since. In 2010 the old museum building (often referred to as "the pink lady") was demolished and part of the old building was used as the foundation for a new museum that will open in March 2013. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Lisadjahed (talkcontribs) 15:47, 6 February 2013 (UTC)

John P. Surma[edit]

Hi Naraht. I wanted to let you know that User:Buck.naked.82 was removing BLP violations from the John P. Surma. While he/she was perhaps overzealous and removed more than was necessary, your reverts were inadvertently restoring those BLP violations. I've warned the ip user that originally added the content and have restored the article to its state prior to the vandalism. Thank you, Gobōnobō + c 20:59, 11 February 2013 (UTC)

RuPaul's Drag Race S5[edit]

Hey there,

I notice that you are one of the user on wiki that participate in the improvement of RuPaul's Drag Race Season 5 page, and because of that, I think your opinion is important! There is a discussion right here with regards to a possible change in the color scheme and abbreviations of the participant table. It is not proposed by me, but before doing any changes, I think that having the opinion of many people is important! So take a look and speak your mind! ; ) ─ Fabzzz talk 21:37, 18 April 2013 (UTC)


Phi Gamma Delta alleged hazing[edit]

In response to your question, the only filed lawsuit was dismissed by the Jackson County (MO) Court due to a lack of jurisdiction. I don't know how to prove that. I don't know how you access court records on matters such as this. The parties settled out of court and all legal matters were resolved. These are confidential documents that are not allowed to be published.

My issue with what was posted is the fact that it was considered "alleged hazing". How do you defend yourself against that? It's like calling someone a "alleged wife beater". Just because one party makes the claim does not make it so. The matter will never be adjudicated in court, so the claim will never be proven or disproven.

Furthermore, one of the references listed was from "Pitch", which is an alternative tabloid of minimal credibility.

Please reinstate my edits. Thank you for your understanding.

Consensus for Samesex marriage in USA.svɢ should SCOTUS decide H.v Perry on standing[edit]

I have made a proposal regarding the stripping of California, should the court reject Perry on the grounds that the plaintiffs had no standing to appeal, in which case, as I understand it, there could be much legal‐wrangling in California courts, and in the halls of Sacramento, over whether Judge Walker’s District Court ruling should apply statewide. I would much appreciate your comments on my proposal on the talkpage of Samesex_marriage_in_USA.svg. ― many thanks, Info por favor (talk) 19:07, 15 June 2013 (UTC)

Hazing allegations Phi Gamma Delta[edit]

I would like to know why this section has to be part of the page it can be damaging to the organization, now a lot of organization have had hazing allegations but i do not see those on there pages, I don't believe that section is constructive to the article.

Preacher0920 (talk)preacher0920 —Preceding undated comment added 20:55, 24 July 2013 (UTC)

The events were covered by major news outlets such as the Chicago Tribune and are directly related to the fraternity. If it makes them look bad it's not Wikipedia's concern. ... discospinster talk 21:12, 24 July 2013 (UTC)

then why not add hazing allegations that have been covered onto every fraternity page on wiki?

Well if someone can find reliable sources that talk about them, they can be added. ... discospinster talk 00:22, 25 July 2013 (UTC)


Re: Omega Phi Alpha[edit]

List of state poets laureate[edit]

Just wanted to thank you for your fixes to the list, I started to take a few swipes at it, and wanted to do more but a nap became more persistent. I appreciate your help. --ColonelHenry (talk) 22:25, 30 October 2013 (UTC)

No problem. I think next step is to make sure that all of the appropriate state categories exist and then fill them...Naraht (talk) 01:47, 31 October 2013 (UTC)
I agree. Even if some of them are stubs with a quick bullet point list, we should at least have one central article per state to tie into it and work from there. I've spent some time on the Poet Laureate of New Jersey article, aiming someday to make it GA-worthy, and I was a little surprised to see that only a handful of states had an article. I've been debating whether to expand the list article to have state sections with tables of past laureates. What are your thoughts on that? Or do you think that's better addressed at the state article/category level?--ColonelHenry (talk) 01:51, 31 October 2013 (UTC)
I think in this case, that stubs per state would be better (as well as a Category for the ones that don't).Naraht (talk) 01:56, 31 October 2013 (UTC)


Help with Verizon Communications article?[edit]

Hello Naraht, I'm contacting you because you previously helped with the archiving of the Talk page for Verizon Communications, and I'm wondering if you might be able to help me with another thing on that article. I've recently drafted some new language about Verizon's products and services and I think should be incorporated into the article. If you have time, could you take a look at the language that I've proposed and, if it looks okay, incorporate it into the article? Thanks so much, VZBob (talk) 18:13, 5 November 2013 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Thomas M. Klapötke[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Thomas M. Klapötke has been proposed for deletion because it appears to have no references. Under Wikipedia policy, this newly created biography of a living person will be deleted unless it has at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article.

If you created the article, please don't be offended. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Referencing for beginners, or ask at the help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within ten days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one. Blethering Scot 18:00, 15 November 2013 (UTC)

Amendment 3[edit]

Well, there's bound to be a third Amendment to every state constitution, or at least a lot of them, not to mention states/provinces in other nations. Unless we can include all of them, it seems the article should be for the third amendments of national constitutions only. Czolgolz (talk) 04:17, 24 December 2013 (UTC)

Hi, I'm user of Wikipedia in Spanish, do not know much English and I come to ask you a big favor.

List of US state poets laureate[edit]

Thanks for your help with the Alaska section. I've been adding a state section or two here or there for the last few weeks when I get the chance (too much tackle all at once, so a few states at time works). It's always good to have another set of eyes for when I screw up by forgetting to put the ref in, or in filling in the blanks. Much appreciated.--ColonelHenry (talk) 15:07, 31 January 2014 (UTC)

No problem. I still think that there is a problem of having the individual state pages not having any information not on this page, but at *worst* we take the per state tables that have been created and move them to the appropriate pages (some of which will need to be created since we're doing some tables that don't currently exist)Naraht (talk) 20:00, 31 January 2014 (UTC)
  • I was a little astonished that the original form of the list linked to categories rather than an article on that state's laureate post. But then again, most of these poets laureate are rather insignificant...but that goes with the territory today with everyone writing poetry and almost no one reading it. I have worked on the article on the New Jersey post (now abolished), which brought me to the list, and I thought a comprehensive list would be great in one place, separated by state as I started to do but writing tables is exhausting work. Seeing that there aren't articles on some states, it would be easy to copy-and-paste that state's table and incorporate it when the time to create state post articles. I don't deign to want to improve other state articles at this point--maybe when I have more time I could create some stubs, but I'd have to be inspired to take that on.--ColonelHenry (talk) 20:07, 31 January 2014 (UTC)
  • What I suggest in terms of writing tables is http://excel2wiki.net/ . Create the table in Excel and then Paste it into the website and it gives you the table. I have made some *huge* tables in wikipedia (600+ rows * 7 columns) (A fraternity chapters table) fairly easily. And as for additional articles, let's wait until we get that as a suggestion when we put this in for GL/FL. :)Naraht (talk) 20:12, 31 January 2014 (UTC)
  • I am incredibly happy you showed me that tool. And I like how you think (re: FLC).--ColonelHenry (talk) 20:15, 31 January 2014 (UTC)

SPI[edit]

Hi, when you're reporting a new sock, don't add it in the case's archive. The process for opening an investigation is the same for re-opening an old case (if a case under that name already exists) as for creating a new case. See the template at the top of WP:SPI for details. Mark Arsten (talk) 17:27, 5 February 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation?[edit]

Sometime recently I had a disambiguation question at the help desk. I sort of remember that you may have been the person who answered it. Am I right? (I have a new, thornier disambiguation question, and I need some advice before posting it at the help desk, or possibly some more direct advice than might be available there.)

Re your message: Yes, same guy. He was using the same ISP that was making the same edits to those two articles. I reverted it yet again. If he comes back for a third time, I'll protect both articles. -- Gogo Dodo (talk) 06:51, 26 February 2014 (UTC)

Answers to your comments[edit]

  • For VP Binay, you can't reference another wikipedia page, so you should instead get the reference that the Alpha Phi Omega members page uses for him. -- I've moved the reference.
  • For Elwood brown, the multiple URLs shoved together in the reference that he introduced volleyball to the Philippines aren't needed. Pick one or maybe two and make a more normal reference -- No one in the Philippines knows that Elwood Brown founded basketball, volleyball, and Boy Scouting in the Philippines. I put all the references I could find in order to avoid disputation.
  • With all of the links to the Diamond Jubilee Yearbook and On My Honor, it probably makes more sense to list those books at the bottom and reference by page number as you have done. See the reference section to Joseph Stalin -- I don't know how to do this.
  • The groups should probably be separated out, it is sort of awkward the way that it is. -- What groups are you referring to?
  • While this is long enough to be its own article, I can't figure out whether it would survive in its current form that way, I don't think there are any individual country lists of notable members other than those which are specific to those who have received a specific award (like USA Eagle Scouts) -- I might make a new article on the history of Scouting in the Philippines and move this section there.
  • Please compare with List of Scouts#The Philippines to see whether additional people should be added in one place or another (and link the entry on List of Scouts to the link in the BSP article with a "main" template. -- I made this list originally for the article "List of Scouts", but it was "cleaned up", actually cleaned out of notability descriptions, by User:Egel of the Netherlands who made the list a senseless listing of mere names that interest no one.

DC Meetups in March[edit]

Happy March!

Though we have a massive snowstorm coming up, spring is just around the corner! Personally, I am looking forward to warmer weather.

Wikimedia DC is looking forward to a spring full of cool and exciting activities. In March, we have coming up:

  • Evening WikiSalon on Wednesday, March 12 from 7 PM – 9 PM. Meet up with Wikipedians for coffee at the Cove co-working space in Dupont Circle! If you cannot make it in the evening, join us at our...
  • March Meetup on Sunday, March 23 from 3 PM – 6 PM. Our monthly weekend meetup, same place as last month. Meet really cool and interesting people!
  • Women in the Arts 2014 meetup and edit-a-thon on Sunday, March 30 from 10 AM – 5 PM. Our second annual Women in the Arts edit-a-thon, held at the National Museum of Women in the Arts. Free lunch will be served!

We hope to see you at our upcoming events! If you have any questions, feel free to ask on my talk page.

My response to your notification is on my user talk page[edit]

I wanted to discuss a bit about what is going on with Alpha Phi Omega's Alpha chapter at Lafayette, if you can. Also thank you for the encouragement to make the changes at the NALFO article. I went ahead and made the proper changes a little while back. Take care and hope to hear from you. Freddiem (talk) 05:21, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

Help with another thing on Verizon article?[edit]

Hi Naraht, thank you for rolling back the edit on Verizon Communications that indicated that Verizon's HQ had moved to New Jersey. I'm not sure if you saw on the Talk page over there or not, but I'm looking for an editor to help me place a new draft of the "History" section for this article, which I've uploaded to my userspace. I realize it's quite long, but I'm wondering if you might be able to take a look at it, and if it looks okay, move it over into the article? I'm also happy to work through it section by section if you feel that would be easier.

Thanks so much, VZBob (talk) 21:03, 17 March 2014 (UTC)

An exciting month of wiki events![edit]

Hello there,

I am pleased to say that April will be a very exciting month for Wikipedia in Washington, DC. We have a lot of different events coming up, so you will have a lot to choose from.

First, a reminder that our second annual Women in the Arts Edit-a-Thon will take place on Sunday, March 30 at the National Museum of Women in the Arts.

Coming up in April, we have our first-ever Open Government WikiHack with the Sunlight Foundation on April 5–6! We are working together to use open government data to improve the Wikimedia projects, and we would love your help. All are welcome, regardless of coding or editing experience. We will also be having a happy hour the day before, with refreshments courtesy of the Sunlight Foundation.

On Friday, April 11 we are having our first edit-a-thon ever with the Library of Congress. The Africa Collection Edit-a-Thon will focus on the Library's African and Middle East Reading Room. It'll be early in the morning, but it's especially worth it if you're interested in improving Wikipedia's coverage of African topics.

The following day, we are having our second annual Wiki Loves Capitol Hill training. We will discuss policy issues relevant to Wikimedia and plan for our day of outreach to Congressional staffers that will take place during the following week.

There are other meetups in the works, so be sure to check our meetup page with the latest. I hope to see you at some of these events!

All the best,
James Hare

Cerritos College[edit]

That many other pages are currently serving as free web hosts for college brochure ware is actually a very convincing argument that we should quickly snip it in the bud whenever it pops its head out.. -- TRPoD aka The Red Pen of Doom 03:27, 6 May 2014 (UTC)

APO link[edit]

I just saw your page on the APO links, and I was wondering if there are any links that you need moved, as I could run AWB to fix the offending ones. Let me know, as I would be more than happy to fix up any outstanding links! Kevin Rutherford (talk) 00:46, 9 May 2014 (UTC)

You mean fixing the links to www.apo.org that don't work due to the web design to the equivalent pages from archive.org?Naraht (talk) 16:56, 9 May 2014 (UTC)
Yes, that. Let me know what exactly needs to be done, and I would be happy to fix it if it is easy to do. Sorry about the late reply though, as I apparently missed that message earlier. Kevin Rutherford (talk) 18:29, 16 May 2014 (UTC)
For the ones that no longer work that don't have easy replacements on the current website look for them on archive.org and then change them over to cite web if necessary and use archiveurl and archivedate like at Cite_web#Examples.Naraht (talk) 14:00, 20 May 2014 (UTC)

Meet up with us[edit]

Happy May!

Thank you for the welcome![edit]

I am a brother in the newly reconstituted Section 57 comprising Southwestern Ohio within Region 5. I am currently doing research on Wittenberg University's inactive Zeta Rho chapter. I am new to editing on Wikipedia, but would like to make a correction on this page. I have recently discovered that Zeta Rho also went inactive in the early 1950's. The last time brothers were registered to the national office was in 1952. They were then reactivated on May 28, 1967 (according to another article) and per the national office's records, 1967 is the next year they have record of brothers initiating at Witt. I have images of all the articles because they are not accessible online.

My question is: what date should I enter as the time when Zeta Rho became inactive? I know I cannot simply put the early 1950's. But there is a 15 year gap in brothers initiating at Witt, so they must have been declared inactive at some point. And how can I cite the articles? Is there a way to post the images to Wikipedia and cite them? Thanks for your help. Apokait (talk) 21:04, 16 June 2014 (UTC)

OK. For ZP, we have the following.
  • Active 1948 @
  • Inactive Early 1950s
  • Active 1967
  • Inactive 1969 @
  • Active 1998 @
  • Inactive 2004 @
With the ones with the @ sign already in the Wikipedia article. You have an article with information about reactivation on May 28th, 1967. That should be added. A reference in Wikipedia does *not* have to be online. Is this the article referenced in http://www6.wittenberg.edu/lib/witt_pubs/torch/search.php?database=torch&fields%5B%5D=subject&terms=Alpha+Phi+Omega ? The information there is more than enough to use as a reference. With this wikipedia article, I have used some approximations, see for example Alpha Kappa. For this purpose with your research, I'd use an approximation.

It's at Wikimedia Commons, any categorisations or updates should be made on that project, not locally.Sfan00 IMG (talk) 13:34, 22 June 2014 (UTC)
So the image exists in both places?Naraht (talk) 14:23, 22 June 2014 (UTC)

Please help me take a look! Thanks![edit]

Naraht,

Thank you for helping me with my wiki page. It was deleted yesterday due to the implausible moving. I re-created it in my sand box with your guideline. Could you let me know how I can improve it and make it stay? Thanks!

amanda kessel's page[edit]

first off, sorry for adding this to your personal profile page. i'm not used to doing anything but adding to wikipedia pages, so wasn't sure what to do. i figured out i'd done it wrong - so deleted it. but sorry for adding my question to your personal page, in any event.

since you fixed up the Amanda Kessel page - can you update the 'medal record' box of her profile to include her results at the world championships and 4 nations cup (you'll see it only shows her olympic silver - but she's won a gold and silver at the world championships and she also won at the 4 nations twice.) i don't want to do it myself, b/c i'm really uncomfortable editing boxes and charts - i'm worried i'll mess everything up.

again - sorry i initially added my question to your profile. i wasn't trying to vandalize. i just didn't notice the talk page. i feel bad. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Phil Kessel (talkcontribs) 06:24, 13 July 2014 (UTC)

Tenable[edit]

I can't locate the deleted version either as a draft or article, but my main beef with this sort of company article is that it tells us about the product, but not the company. The headquarters are a US state and two countries, surely they must be in a town or city somewhere? And of course there is nothing like number of employees, profits or turnover. I won't deleted if you approve it, but I have my doubts as to how encyclopaedic it is Jimfbleak - talk to me? 05:44, 17 July 2014 (UTC)

I worked for one of Tenable's main competitors about 5 years ago. Like Tenable, everything is off of a suite of products that derives from their main product. But I'll take a hack at distinguishing them. And the main HQ is in Columbia Maryland, contact info is at http://www.tenable.com/about-tenable/contact-tenable . I'll take another look at WP:CORPDEPTH.Naraht (talk) 10:45, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
OK, fine Jimfbleak - talk to me? 18:06, 17 July 2014 (UTC)


Your help requested[edit]

Thank you for your suggestions on Military production during World War II. Bender235deleted over 3 months and 300 hours of my work, 40,000 characters of edits, and hundreds of constructive additions to the page. I am in the midst of uploading an enormous amount of PRIMARY SOURCE DATA and he deleted everything done so far as "wikipedia can not be a source for itself". I am enraged. There was not one comment, warning, question, request, or suggestion from this "editor". Can you please help me reverse all the deletions and keep this guy off the page. There are ongoing constructive edits from several other individuals watching this site. Please help resolve this. --Brukner (talk) 18:35, 18 July 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for July 19[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Brevard College, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Burke County. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
