Hi Rbcwa, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thanks for your contributions to the coolest online encyclopedia I know of =). I sure hope you stick around; we're always in need of more people to create new articles and improve the ones we already have. You'll probably find it easiest to start with a tutorial of how the wikipedia works, and you can test stuff for yourself in the sandbox. When you're contributing, you'll probably find the manual of style to be helpful, and you'll also want to remember a couple important guidelines. First, write from a neutral point of view, second, be bold in editing pages, and third, use wikiquette. Those are probably the most important ones, and you can take a look at some others at the policies and guidelines page. You might also be interested in how to write a great article and possibly adding some images to your articles.

Be sure to get involved in the community – you can contact me at my talk page if you have any questions, and you can check out the village pump, where lots of wikipedians hang out and discuss things. If you're looking for something to do, check out the community portal. And whenever you ask a question or post something on a talk page, be sure to sign your name by typing ~~~~.

Again, welcome! It's great to have you. Happy editing! --Spangineer (háblame) 04:32, Jun 26, 2005 (UTC)

D.C. Heath[edit]

I was writing an article on my favorite NJ writer Gerald Tomlinson who died a few months ago, I called his widow for a picture to put in the article. Thats my favorite part of researching, calling people and interviewing them. I had a list of publishing companies he worked for and made it my task to write a stub for each one. When I was done, someone marked D.C. Heath for deletion within 5 minutes. So, I did an exhaustive search of every permutation of the name to find links within Wikipedia. Your was the only biography of someone to actually work there. Its nice when you find a connection like that. Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) 00:37, 20 July 2006 (UTC)


Thanks for letting me know. That's an interesting story about Gerald Tomlinson. Aloha, Rbcwa 00:53, 20 July 2006 (UTC)

Insider trading[edit]

Sorry, didn't mean to accuse you of spamming, but that page has been getting a lot of it from companies marketing stuff. Instead, I put a link to the Form 4s and Form 5s on the SEC's webpage, which has all the formal disclosures of trading by insiders. Also, as you know, the insider trading page is really focused on illegal insider trading: noting insider trade disclosures doesn't really illuminate the issue.

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thank you for experimenting with Wikipedia. Your test worked, and the page that you created has been or soon will be deleted. Please use the sandbox for any other tests you want to do. Take a look at the welcome page if you would like to learn more about contributing to our encyclopedia. You may also wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles - see the Article Wizard.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you. —Largo Plazo (talk) 17:09, 25 September 2009 (UTC)


US Cyber[edit]

Hey, thanks for your input on the US Cyber Command article. I've reviewed your blog, very informative. I want to thank you for that. It gathers together a lot of information I didn't have before. I had no idea Alexander was up for promotion. I have been able to add a significant amount of information to the article. Sephiroth storm (talk) 01:05, 14 December 2009 (UTC)

Category:United States Cyber Command Components[edit]

See proposal to rename Category:United States Cyber Command Components to Category:United States Cyber Command at Wikipedia:Categories for discussion/Log/2009 December 28#Category:United_States_Cyber_Command_Components, where your contributions would be welcome. --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 14:09, 28 December 2009 (UTC)

Category:International businesspeople[edit]

Hi Rbwca

I have proposed that Category:International businesspeople, which you created, should be deleted.

Your comments welcome in the discussion at Wikipedia:Categories for discussion/Log/2010 January 1#Category:International_businesspeople. --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 19:34, 1 January 2010 (UTC)

hey[edit]

You might want to keep an eye out here: [1], could have some word about CyberCom. Sephiroth storm (talk) 00:28, 9 January 2010 (UTC)

Army Network Enterprise Technology Command (NETCOM)/9th Army Signal Command[edit]

Hey, Army Network Enterprise Technology Command (NETCOM)/9th Army Signal Command probably should be looked at. Its a possible WP:Copyvio article. I wanted to warn you before I tagged it. If you need some help fixing it, let me know. Sephiroth storm (talk) 06:13, 12 January 2010 (UTC)

Which part? I adopted some of the article from the 972nd Signal Battalion article. I wrote some of it. I adopted a couple of NETCOM documents for the rest which is public domain. The command insignia came off the now defunct netcom web site. Rbcwa (talk) 14:30, 12 January 2010 (UTC)
Just looking at the history, a lot of it looks like it was taken directly from a website, not saying it was, just it looks that way. Sephiroth storm (talk) 16:46, 12 January 2010 (UTC)
Most of it came from the old NETCOM web site, adopted by me to some degree. Government works are public domain. I also cite the web site as a reference. I'll take a look at the WP:Copyvio article and look for the non-compliant parts. I probably won't have time till the weekend though. Rbcwa (talk) 05:19, 13 January 2010 (UTC)
Hmm, you are correct about the public domain part... I still think it sounds a little too copy and paste, personally, I would include less of the history, but I don't think much other information is publicly available on the command. Sephiroth storm (talk) 05:38, 13 January 2010 (UTC)
The history part could stand some aggressive summarization. Perhaps I can trim it down and rewrite it at the same time. Rbcwa (talk) 06:05, 13 January 2010 (UTC)
OK, I cut back and rewrote the history some. I think more could be trimmed, a task for later. Rbcwa (talk) 02:24, 17 January 2010 (UTC)
Looks better. Sephiroth storm (talk) 03:51, 17 January 2010 (UTC)

File copyright problem with File:Asc_dui.jpg[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thank you for uploading File:Asc_dui.jpg. However, it currently is missing information on its copyright status. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously. It may be deleted soon, unless we can determine the license and the source of the file. If you know this information, then you can add a copyright tag to the image description page.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their license and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thanks again for your cooperation. Chris G Bot (talk) 00:18, 4 April 2010 (UTC)

I added the tag, no worries. Sephiroth storm (talk) 20:09, 4 April 2010 (UTC)

File source problem with File:2010-05-14-USCYBERCOM Logo.jpg[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thank you for uploading File:2010-05-14-USCYBERCOM Logo.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, please add a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of that website's terms of use of its content. However, if the copyright holder is a party unaffiliated from the website's publisher, that copyright should also be acknowledged.

If you have uploaded other files, consider verifying that you have specified sources for those files as well. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged per Wikipedia's criteria for speedy deletion, F4. If the image is copyrighted and non-free, the image will be deleted 48 hours after 20:52, 23 August 2010 (UTC) per speedy deletion criterion F7. If you have any questions or are in need of assistance please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 20:52, 23 August 2010 (UTC)

two articles[edit]

Would you be interested in improving the the 1st Information Operations Command article, and creating a Army Computer Emergency Response Team article? Sephiroth storm (talk) 19:38, 8 January 2011 (UTC)

I'll see what I can do there. The Twenty-Fourth Air Force and Naval Network Warfare Command articles are on my list too. I've barely touched those so far. Rbcwa (talk) 20:08, 8 January 2011 (UTC)
Ok, Thanks, and good luck! Sephiroth storm (talk) 05:19, 9 January 2011 (UTC)
How's that look? Rbcwa (talk) 04:00, 22 June 2011 (UTC)

Good catch, you found out about it before I did. Sephiroth storm (talk) 19:59, 21 March 2012 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use File:EVNautilus.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:EVNautilus.jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that the media is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information or which could be adequately covered with text alone. If you believe this media is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the media description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per our non-free content policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 00:02, 22 April 2012 (UTC)

File:IsaacNCarleton.jpg missing description details[edit]

Dear uploader: The media file you uploaded as:

is missing a description and/or other details on its image description page. If possible, please add this information. This will help other editors make better use of the image, and it will be more informative to readers.

If the information is not provided, the image may eventually be proposed for deletion, a situation which is not desirable, and which can easily be avoided.

If you have any questions, please see Help:Image page. Thank you. Theo's Little Bot (error?) 01:02, 13 April 2013 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Peavey Delta Blues 210[edit]

Hello Rbcwa,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged Peavey Delta Blues 210 for deletion, because it seems to be promotional, rather than an encyclopedia article.

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted and want more time to work on it, you can contest this deletion, but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. TRL (talk) 03:01, 20 July 2013 (UTC)

Moved to userspace[edit]

Hiya! I moved the article for the guitar amplifier to User:Rbcwa/Peavey Delta Blues 210. The article did have some issues with it, but I figured that there's no harm in you working on it in your userspace for right now. The big, big issue that I saw above anything else is that it didn't have anything to show why this specific type of amplifier has any notability outside of the company. You need coverage in sources that are independent of the subject and are from reliable sources. The YouTube link doesn't seem to be by anyone that Wikipedia would consider to be a reliable source, unfortunately. In any case, I figured I'd let you have a chance to work on it some more in your userspace. Tokyogirl79 (。◕‿◕。) 05:07, 20 July 2013 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Early Wright (Disc jockey)[edit]

Hello Rbcwa,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged Early Wright (Disc jockey) for deletion, because the article doesn't clearly say why the subject is important enough to be included in an encyclopedia.

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted and want more time to work on it, you can contest this deletion, but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. Karlhard (talk) 02:38, 8 November 2014 (UTC)
