Help on Separation of money and state[edit]

Hi Mark

I remarked your contributions to the Bitcoin article. It seems you know quite a bit about the subject indeed. May I solicit your help to better source and expand Separation of money and state? I was shocked that such an article didn't exist in Wikipedia, although that claim has been formulated by some of your country's founding fathers. If you have time/interest about the topic that would be great. (See my comments here).

Cheers

Hey, I will see what I can do. :) Thanks for your help on the Bitcoin article! --Neoconfederate (talk) 15:42, 29 January 2013 (UTC)

Nordic alien image[edit]

Well, we need some way to verify where it came from. I can't even see anything at the Internet Archive. Do you know the original owner of the image? It might be possible to get something sorted out via email.

I realize that the current image isn't ideal, itself. Zagalejo^^^ 01:45, 1 February 2013 (UTC)

Invitation to participate in debate[edit]

Proposed deletion of Interior Semiotics[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Interior Semiotics has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Does not appear to meet WP:WEB

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} 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 {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

February 2013[edit]

Hello, I'm Optakeover. I wanted to let you know that I undid one of your recent contributions, such as the one you made to Virtual currency, because it didn’t appear constructive to me. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks, Optakeover(Talk) 10:23, 6 February 2013 (UTC)

Virtual economy fork[edit]

Hi, I reverted your edit that put a redirect over the Virtual goods page. I'm not sure it's a fork, but it may be. I'd be happy to have the content of that page merged with Virtual economy, but I don't think it should just be deleted. Fleetham (talk) 15:56, 8 February 2013 (UTC)

Do you want me to merge the relevant content? I can do that. Thanks for the heads up. --Neoconfederate (talk) 17:45, 8 February 2013 (UTC)
Sure, merge away. Fleetham (talk) 22:31, 8 February 2013 (UTC)

Bitcoin[edit]

Bullshit. There is no need for such a thing as "constructive reason for removal"--I could have said the same thing about all of your edits. Drmies (talk) 02:40, 9 February 2013 (UTC)

Many articles have popular culture sections when the subjects involved are notable. The Goodwife is widely watched television program and Jim Cramer is a big name in the financial world. Indeed, the Romney addition was minor and not as notable considering the hacking may have been a hoax. I wish you all the best, my friend. --Neoconfederate (talk) 02:42, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
Yes, and many articles need to have that stuff removed. Drmies (talk) 02:43, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
Feel free to cite policy. Cited material generally shouldn't be removed especially concerning notable figures. --Neoconfederate (talk) 02:44, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
The show and bitcoin both were major subjects in the Wall Street Journal article cited. --Neoconfederate (talk) 02:45, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
No, that's utter bullshit. A plot summary of a TV show (reprinted on the WSJ blog from another magazine) that mentions your subject? That article is about the TV show, not about your subject. And at any rate, that it was mentioned in a TV program doesn't mean anything, it doesn't matter: this is an encyclopedia, not a collection of factoids. I'm glad you feel experienced enough with your 600 edits to tell me what's proper and what's not. Carry on. Drmies (talk) 02:52, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
The entire episode was about bitcoin. The entire article was about an episode that was centered around bitcoin. --Neoconfederate (talk) 02:55, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
And it's still trivial. Anyway, I wish I had seen you create Interior Semiotics; it would have looked great on the front page and you would have gotten a million hits on it. Drmies (talk) 01:18, 10 February 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for your work on it. --Neoconfederate (talk) 20:18, 10 February 2013 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Bitcoin Transaction Visual.png[edit]

A tag has been placed on File:Bitcoin Transaction Visual.png requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F2 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is an image page for a missing or corrupt image or an empty image description page for a Commons-hosted image.

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 22:27, 12 February 2013 (UTC)

The image is at commons, the local description page is what is being proposed for deletion. I would ask you to withdraw the comment you made on my talk page. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 23:40, 12 February 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for February 16[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help.

Market Capitalization[edit]

Hello Neo. I want to give you a heads up that I undid your removal of most of the text in Market Capitalization. You are correct that it needs in-line citations, however because the uncited material is not controversial, it is better to leave it with the references needed tag and allow other editors to add proper citations to the article. I also removed your addition of derivatives and other assets to the definition of Market Capitalization. This term refers only to the equity value of a corporate issuer of equity securities. Thanks. SPECIFICO talk 02:05, 19 February 2013 (UTC)

Fictional futures[edit]

Consensus was that fictional items set in (say) the 2020s may be moved to 2020s in fiction, but should not be removed from Wikipedia (unless, individually, they are not notable fiction). There was no consensus to summarily remove the material from Wikipedia. The fact that you moved 2140s indicates you know how to do it correctly. As for 2009, where the article did exist, you didn't merge the fictional items from 2009 into Works of fiction set in 2009; you just deleted them. — Arthur Rubin (talk) 03:36, 6 March 2013 (UTC)

Bitcoin Revision[edit]

Thanks for your edit on Bitcoin. I didn't know the reason for the brakets. WikiTryHardDieHard (talk) 22:56, 10 March 2013 (UTC)

Great work on bitcoin[edit]

Wikidsoup [talk] 19:52, 11 March 2013 (UTC)

prods[edit]

When you place a prod tag on an article, it's necessary to give a reason. If you use Twinkle, which you can activate from the gadgets panel of your preferences page, it will give you a place to fill in the reason, which can be any valid reason for deletion according to WP:Deletion policy. I know sometimes it's obvious from the article what the problem is, but it's necessary so the editor who submitted the article can know what is wrong. DGG ( talk ) 20:02, 24 March 2013 (UTC)

Undoing Another Wikipedian's Edits[edit]

A colon is an acceptable punctuation mark. I've worked with many publishers and copyeditors and it's often preferred over a semicolon. I read your edits completely. They make things longer than they need to be and they often read like an essay or an informal paper which is great if you are informally explaining something. Wikipedia needs to operate on a very professional, efficient prose so layered editing can be more cohesive. Yes, the article isn't perfect but that isn't the point. For the future of the article, the writing style needs to be taken very seriously when more content is added.
I've let this article go and I've seen only horrible things. Advertising, uncited claims among other things. Quality needs to be monitored and maintained. The early history of this article is a testament to what happens when things are not structured. This article cannot be casually written.

--☥NEO (talk) 21:37, 1 April 2013 (UTC)

I'm sorry to have wasted your time and mine with this ranting. I will delet my comments above and on my talk page. I wish you well with your bitcoin article. I'm glad to see that you generously incorporated some of my thoughts into your latest edits.

Please delete this apology as well.Hobsonlane (talk) 11:45, 3 April 2013 (UTC)

Digital_currency[edit]

As you have the most edits on Digital_currency you might be interested in working to remove the dead, stupid, and scam currencies. I don't have the time to verify which are scams and/or dead. **** you, you ******* ****. (talk) 22:34, 6 April 2013 (UTC)

Please come back[edit]

You're needed. There are lots of uphill battles on Wikipedia, but (usually) they're worth the effort! <3 snacks [talk] 18:12, 12 April 2013 (UTC)
