Please note that because I've been extremely busy in real life the past months, I am not presently active on Wikipedia. It's good business though, thanks for asking :) Feel free to drop by below to say hi, but if you have questions of any sort, you'd get a swifter response by asking them somewhere else. >Radiant< 17:30, 1 December 2008 (UTC)

Your input would be appreciated[edit]

I noticed you voting in this year's ArbCom elections and I know you are extremely busy, but could you please contact Randomran and briefly explain Template:Notabilityguide and Wikipedia:Notability to him? Randomran created Wikipedia:Notability/RFC:compromise in early September and I think he may be misunderstanding some things. I would also appreciate your input at this thread at Wikipedia talk:Notability. And I know it's alot to wade through, but if you can find the time, could you perhaps glance over Wikipedia:Notability/RFC:compromise and maybe comment somewhere about it? I think your input could do a lot to clear some things up for some people. --Pixelface (talk) 11:24, 3 December 2008 (UTC)

Note[edit]

Just saying "hi", and mentioning that you've been missed (at least by me), especially at WP:CFD.

I hope that life's treating you well : ) - jc37 20:22, 4 December 2008 (UTC)

Just writing to say that I disagree with your stance on the deletion of Push Singh's wiki page. Your stated reason is that he died before he became famous. But lots of scientists and artists who are without question noteworthy died before they became famous.


Singh laid the foundations for a realm of Artificial Intelligence research that is sufficiently noteworthy that I came across mention of him in spite of the fact that I was just glancing at the topic in a tangent from my initial search. When I read how he passed away, I was immediately curious to learn more about him.


I do understand that there are specific guidelines for inclusion in Wikipedia on the basis of notability. I just wish you had left a clearer explanation of why Singh's page didn't meet the criteria (i.e. coverage by reliable secondary sources). If the latter was the reason, here are a few examples of coverage of Singh in reliable secondary sources.

RFC at WP:NOR-notice[edit]

A concern was raised that the clause, "a primary source may be used only to make descriptive claims, the accuracy of which is verifiable by any reasonable, educated person without specialist knowledge" conflicts with WP:NPOV by placing a higher duty of care with primary sourced claims than secondary or tertiary sourced claims. An RFC has been initiated to stimulate wider input on the issue. Professor marginalia (talk) 19:02, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

WikiProject Policy[edit]

Hi, I notice you were involved with the defunct WP:WikiProject Policy and Guidelines. I've proposed something similar (before I was aware of the old one that doesn't seem to have got off the ground). Perhaps you could comment on my proposal at Wikipedia:WikiProject Council/Proposals#WikiProject Policy. Comments on what happened to the old project would be helpful. Thanks.

Proposed deletion of Tourmalike[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Tourmalike, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process because of the following concern:

Unsourced mineral name

All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because, even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.

Miss Universe 2010 Potential Bids[edit]

Hi! Would like to request for your input on this article. it seems that the main editor is a newcomer; although i already told the editor that it will be better if the wikipedia guidelines are read first before carrying out article writing, it seems that no progress has been made. thanks. Joey80 (talk) 08:47, 22 June 2009 (UTC)

An apology for something that happened a couple years ago[edit]

I was browsing my logs, and noticed this revert i made of you to an essay I had written. A few things. My bad about the snarky and dismissive edit summary, that was way uncalled for. Not sure why I made it anymore it was so long ago, but you in no way deserved it. Also, I'm seeing, if i were to be looking at some one elses revert, more then a tinge of ownership. I'm not even sure why I felt the need to revert, as the edit seems to be perfectly in line with what I had in mind.

Anyway, it's late, im not sure why im apologizing, but after seeing it I couldn't stop myself. --Mask? 08:42, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

Naming Conflict policy[edit]

A user is wanting to radically change the Wikipedia Naming Conflict guideline, particularly with relevance to cutting the section on self-identifying names. A change that might cause havoc in a number of widely-argued naming conflict articles. There is very little involvement of the wider community in this at the moment, so as one of the early contributors to this guideline, I thought I'd ask if you would be interested in commenting at Wikipedia talk:Naming conflict Xandar 20:01, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

2012 Election Need Your Feedback[edit]

I noticed you were a regular editor on the 2008 election page. Myself and other editors are odds on some edits we are trying to make to the page.

Busy? I think you are full of crap. I am not supporting dolty Wikipedians like you and founder.

Notification of pending suspension of administrative permissions due to inactivity[edit]

Following a community discussion in June 2011, consensus was reached to provisionally suspend the administrative permissions of users who have been inactive for one year (i.e. administrators who have not made any edits or logged actions in over one year). As a result of this discussion, your administrative permissions will be removed pending your return if you do not return to activity within the next month. If you wish to have these permissions reinstated should this occur, please post to the Wikipedia:Bureaucrats' noticeboard and the userright will be restored per the re-sysopping process (i.e., as long as the attending bureaucrats are reasonably satisfied that your account has not been compromised and that your inactivity did not have the effect of evading scrutiny of any actions which might have led to sanctions). This removal of access is procedural only, and not intended to reflect negatively upon you in any way. We wish you the best in future endeavors, and thank you for your past administrative efforts.

Speedy deletion nomination of Hertog Jan[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay.
