Copypaste tag[edit]

On December 19 you tagged Alan Kaplinsky as likely copy-pasted from someplace else. My quick search found no evidence to that effect, and you didn't provide a source. Why did you tag it? Huon (talk) 14:56, 3 January 2014 (UTC)

I used the copypaste tag and not the copyvio tag precisely because I could not find a source. I was wary of some of the elements of the article, specifically the list of notable cases and the integration of an unattributed quote unsourced quote in the lead paragraph, that made it likely that the article text was copied from somewhere else. RJaguar3 | u | t 16:54, 3 January 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for the quick reply. The article certainly has some problems (such as WP:OR or WP:SYN), but it didn't look copy-pasted to me, and since you removed the tag, the issue seems resolved. Again, thanks! Huon (talk) 17:21, 3 January 2014 (UTC)

GA review of VRA[edit]

Hello RJaguar3, thanks again for your comments on the Voting Rights Act of 1965 GA review. As it's been about three weeks since the last update, I was wondering if you are still planning on conducting the GA review. I understand if you've been busy, and I'm happy to continue work with you on the review if you'd like to continue it. But if reviewing the article is something you don't think you have the time for, I'd appreciate it if you could let me know and perhaps allow another editor to conduct the review. Either way, thanks for your work thus far. –Prototime (talk · contribs) 02:11, 7 February 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for asking. I now have the five books referenced in the article and have been thoroughly reviewing the article and the cited references. I am currently up through the 1992 amendments, and I should be able to get the article finished this weekend. Thanks again for your patience. RJaguar3 | u | t 13:47, 7 February 2014 (UTC)
That's fantastic! Thanks for all of your hard work. I look forward to your comments. –Prototime (talk · contribs) 16:11, 7 February 2014 (UTC)
Prototime, I've been sick this weekend (when I was planning to go through a major chunk of the article), so the review should be finished next week. Thank you for your patience. RJaguar3 | u | t 01:37, 10 February 2014 (UTC)
No worries, the GA review can wait; feel better soon. –Prototime (talk · contribs) 03:33, 10 February 2014 (UTC)

Hi RJaguar3, thanks again for your fantastic GA review. I'm not sure if you're interested in voting rights- or law-related articles more generally, but if so I would enjoy collaborating with you to work on improving some of them. I've been thinking about taking a stab at Equal Protection Clause, Voter ID laws in the United States, or Felony disenfranchisement sometime soon (in addition to continuing to polish the VRA article), but I have relatively eclectic interests so I'm open to working on other articles in these areas too. Feel free to ping me if you're ever interested in working together. –Prototime (talk · contribs) 05:48, 8 March 2014 (UTC)

Concerning File:Heroes advertising flyer.jpg[edit]

Hi, RJaguar3, and thank you for your message. As it is stated in the article (Avalon Hill):

In early 1984, on the occasion of the release of third edition RuneQuest, Avalon Hill included in all RuneQuest boxes a single advertising flyer (see image, right) announcing the launch of HEROES

I guess it can be explained, by some way, in the description page of the file... but I don't know how this exactly could be done... Any advice would be most welcome. Kintaro (talk) 08:47, 3 May 2014 (UTC)

@Kintaro: I corrected the DI tag on the file page. The issue still stands that the non-free use rationale on the file page does not explain why usage of the image on Avalon Hill satisfies WP:NFCC#8. RJaguar3 | u | t 13:54, 3 May 2014 (UTC)
And that's all? I guess you think that NFCC#8 is able to be applied to the image... that is? because in my case I simply do not agree with you. The image illustrates the text and thus brings a reference to it. Kintaro (talk) 21:49, 3 May 2014 (UTC)

FAC of VRA[edit]

Hi RJaguar3, thanks again for your thoughtful GA review of Voting Rights Act of 1965. I wanted to let you know that the article is currently a Featured Article Candidate, in case you'd like to give any feedback on its candidacy; the FAC entry is at Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/Voting Rights Act of 1965/archive1. Beyond a good amount of copyediting and polishing, the article isn't too different from when you conducted the GA review, except that some of the text describing the Act's amendments was moved to a child article (Amendments to the Voting Rights Act of 1965) in light of how lengthy the article was. The FAC has been mostly quiet thus far, and given your insight, I would greatly appreciate your feedback on the article's candidacy. Thanks! –Prototime (talk · contribs) 02:52, 11 May 2014 (UTC)

File:Heroes advertising flyer.jpg[edit]

I've declined the speedy deletion for File:Heroes advertising flyer.jpg as the uploader makes some claims on the talk page which may or may not be relevant. If you still feel this image has WP:NFCC issues (I'm not commenting either way), I recommend that you take the discussion to WP:FFD as I feel that the uploader should be given a full discussion. Cheers, TLSuda (talk) 13:20, 11 May 2014 (UTC)

FFD notice[edit]

Hi.

I just wanted to let you know that I folded four of your nominations in Wikipedia:Files for deletion/2014 July 8 into one multi-nomination entry, (per WP:FFD instructions) so that they can be discussed all the same time, without having to post the same message four times.

Hope that's okay.

Best regards,
Codename Lisa (talk) 19:00, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

Certainly, that's okay. Thank you for doing that. RJaguar3 | u | t 23:30, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

Legends end date issue[edit]

RJaguar3, there's an anon under the IP of 76.19.217.41, claiming Legends end date was on December 29, 1995, according to LegendsWikia. That definitely can't be it, and I was wondering if you can help so I won't get into a war with the person, who could possibly continue. I tried once and then another. --64.134.26.86 (talk) 22:17, 8 November 2014 (UTC)

Hi there![edit]

Of course it's me. I am Grundle2600. I never try to hide the identity of my socks. It's interesting that everyone was OK with the edits from this particular sock until they started to suspect that it was a sock. The only reason I was banned in the first place was to prevent me from adding reliably sourced info that was critical of Obama. Many articles created by my various socks are still in existence, and the content that I added is still in them. I never should have been banned in the first place.
