Power Mac[edit]

Hi RJV. Just a Q about your edit to Power Mac G4... are you saying there is no such thing as a Power Macintosh G4 or just that that isn't what the new ones are called anymore? Don't want to let this become some silly dispute. Cheers --Duozmo 17:22, 18 March 2007 (UTC)

Liberty Dollar[edit]

My mistake. Good call here: [1]. Thanks, Famspear 17:36, 22 February 2007 (UTC)

Image Fair use rationale problem

Thanks for uploading Image:NH-GOPdebate-scorecardCNN-20070610.png. However, there is a concern that the rationale you have provided for using this image under "fair use" may be invalid. Please read the instructions at Wikipedia:Non-free content carefully, then go to the image description page and clarify why you think the image qualifies for fair use. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If it is determined that the image does not qualify under fair use, it will be deleted within a couple of days according to our Criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. ++aviper2k7++ 03:21, 10 July 2007 (UTC)

Years needed in dates when period will span 2 years[edit]

You deleted the year "2007" in many entries which will be needed in 2008 in the Ron Paul article to avoid confusion. You shouldn't make the poor reader have to scan up and down the very tall column trying to determine the year. I shall put them back. Please discuss with me before reverting. I agree with your other improvements on the dates, which are helpful. Thanks! Korky Day 08:07, 3 September 2007 (UTC)

  • I see you removed year at the top, as the original contributor was apparently intending to do an outline. I agree, what you did is better. —RVJ 03:15, 5 September 2007 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:GnuPG logo 2006.png)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:GnuPG logo 2006.png. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media 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 media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

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. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 05:06, 18 August 2008 (UTC)

About Casimir Pulaski[edit]

I have a photo I took of Pulaksi's statue that I'd like to add to the article but I can't figure out how. If you would contact me at kashayes, yahoo I'd be happy to pass it to you if you can post it.

Zoe Saldana[edit]

Hi, RVJ.

Isn't that source a blog, and thus non-reliable? SamEV (talk) 23:04, 28 January 2010 (UTC)

Google Talk[edit]

Hi, RJV.

If you look at the Google Talk page at http://www.google.com/talk/ (this URL appears at least twice in the Google Talk article) you will see that it now features two products: the PC-only Google Talk, and the multi-platform voice-and-video-capable Google Voice, which Google seems to be pushing as the future (with many new services such as PC to phone, conference calls, etc)—even just for chat messaging (http://googlevoiceblog.blogspot.com/). Removing all references to Google Voice from the Google Talk article seems to orphan the Google Talk article. LittleBen (talk) 01:03, 27 February 2011 (UTC)

Notification: changes to "Mark my edits as minor by default" preference[edit]

Hello there. This is an automated message to tell you about the gradual phasing out of the preference entitled "Mark all edits minor by default", which you currently have (or very recently had) enabled.

On 13 March 2011, this preference was hidden from the user preferences screen as part of efforts to prevent its accidental misuse (consensus discussion). This had the effect of locking users in to their existing preference, which, in your case, was true. To complete the process, your preference will automatically be changed to false in the next few days. This does not require any intervention on your part and you will still be able to manually mark your edits as being 'minor'. The only thing that's changed is that you will no longer have them marked as minor by default.

For established users such as yourself there is a workaround available involving custom JavaScript. If you are familiar with the contents of WP:MINOR, and believe that it is still beneficial to the encyclopedia to have all your edits marked as such by default, then this discussion will give you the details you need to continue with this functionality indefinitely. If you have any problems, feel free to drop me a note.

Thank you for your understanding and happy editing :) Editing on behalf of User:Jarry1250, LivingBot (talk) 18:20, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

Please stop doing this[edit]

Re: this edit Adding rems is not useful and may be confusing. I just went through and removed all rems from the article and detailed my reasoning in the talk page - please respond there if you have concerns but stop adding rem conversion to the article. In addition I recently assigned those references names to avoid duplication, and you undid this, which is not helpful. Thanks.--Pontificalibus (talk) 13:03, 16 March 2011 (UTC)

I said please stop adding rem conversions, why do you keep doing this?--Pontificalibus (talk) 13:18, 16 March 2011 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification[edit]

Hi, this message is to let you know about disambiguation links you've recently created. A link to a disambiguation page is almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. For more information, see the FAQ or drop a line at the DPL WikiProject.

James Wickstrom[edit]

The confusing thing is that there have been at least two "Constitution Party of Wisconsin" entities that I know of. Wickstrom was affiliated with the version which was active from 1980-1984, and was an affiliate of the American Independent Party; indeed, he was a Wisconsin member of the AIP's National Committee. That WCP seems to have faded into the shrubbery after the arrest, conviction and jailing of Wickstrom, who had declared himself chief judge and municipal clerk of the “Constitution Township of Tigerton Dells”, a Posse enclave on the banks of the Embarrass River. The current Constitution Party of Wisconsin was founded in 1991 as a unit of the U.S. Taxpayers Party, and changed its name when the national party did so. While I personally see considerable continuity between the rhetoric and supporters of the two entities, there is (to the best of my knowledge) no legal connection at all. --Orange Mike | Talk 21:25, 12 December 2011 (UTC)

Tuques and beanies[edit]

Hi, there! Quite a while back, you posted comments at Talk:Tuque about the appropriate terminology to describe that garment. I've just added a follow-up comment there in relation to a larger discussion at Talk:Beanie (North America) disambiguating different uses of the word beanie in different regions and how to title the relevant articles for the sake of clarity. Your thoughts on the ideas being kicked around would be most welcome! sroc (talk) 16:40, 19 March 2013 (UTC)

Paczki[edit]

RVJ, I copied this talk page section from Paczki to make you aware that User:Piotrus reverted your move. Personally I agree with your page move.--Asher196 (talk) 15:48, 31 March 2014 (UTC)


Folks, I'm anglicizing the article. Not a single source cited uses "pączki," nor does a single English-language dictionary enter this word. Naturally. There are no ogonki in English.

Given the ample evidence that paczki is the loanword, I won't have to move the article to "Polish doughnut". RVJ (talk) 23:56, 27 February 2014 (UTC)

I am not convinced. I've reverted this undiscussed move per WP:RM. This is a potentially controversial move; please start a proper RM discussion and see if there's a consensus to support such a move. In the past many similar moves were rejected, as the lack of usage for and diacritics like a is simply a byproduct of laziness and people not having the correct key/program on their keyboards. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 08:23, 31 March 2014 (UTC)
