WikiProject Pinball rebooted
Hello Richfife! A few years ago I started Wikipedia:WikiProject Pinball. After letting it sit mostly untouched for a while, I've returned to it, and am looking to do some serious work to revamp it. I would like to invite you back, as I believe that at least I, personally, should be able to keep up with it more frequently now, and help make it a more productive endeavor. I hope to see you there!

I think Chrome screwed up on me. I certainly did not intend to delete the section, I was adding a paragraph to the end. Chrome has screwed up several times when I did a drag & drop edit.
Thank you for uploading an arguably useful image. IMO, the floating toys suggest a greater depth, substance and specificity in the idiom's context. I presume your intention was witty, but I think this image serves a practical function. In other words, the words and arrows are an implicit invitation to parse the elements of what is otherwise glossed over.
- I can see both sides. If someone removes it, I won't put it back. Thanks! - Richfife (talk) 19:22, 1 March 2011 (UTC)
File:RoseTheRiveter.JPG listed for deletion
A file that you uploaded or altered, File:RoseTheRiveter.JPG, has been listed at Wikipedia:Files for deletion. Please see the discussion to see why this is (you may have to search for the title of the image to find its entry), if you are interested in it not being deleted. Thank you.

Richfife, you recently drew attention to a comment I made on the Robert P. George talk page: "To be completely clear about it, I don't believe that Mr. Sullivan should be used as a source in any article about conservative writers, least of all those who have criticized homosexuality. That was why I reverted the John Finnis article back to an earlier version (I reverted this article back to an older version for the same reason)." I have no reason to apologize for that comment, and would like to explain myself a little more carefully. I noticed that someone had added content about homosexuality to John Finnis, and that this content was sourced to a book by Andrew Sullivan, a known homosexual. As it is my view that homosexuals cannot possibly be objective about anything related to homosexuality, I removed that content from the article, and reverted it back to an older version. If you have a problem with that, all you need to do is to go to the article and revert me in turn. If consensus favors your version, I will not edit war or revert back.

- The problems with that comment are pretty self evident, so I'll trust that anyone reading this can see them without my help. - Richfife (talk) 05:37, 21 September 2011 (UTC)

Hi. In Many Farms, Arizona, you recently added a link to the disambiguation page Navajo (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are 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.
Hi, you have edited Metro Walk and this article is currently under a contentious debate on a possible merger or deletion, your opinion on the matter and content might be useful in resolving the issues and reaching consensus, perhaps you would then like to do so at your convenience. Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Luciferwildcat (talk • contribs) 00:04, 6 January 2012 (UTC)
Removal of edit
A link I added to hudsonlee.com was removed. While I accept this may be because it's a blog, there are at least two other links on the page to a similar blog, so what I'd like to know is what criteria the other site meets that mine doesn't?
All the best,

- Well but did you also program Star Wars Jedi Knight Dark Forces II?? Then you probably know where my name comes from, right? Morgan Katarn (talk) 14:17, 6 June 2012 (UTC)
Greetings, I've noticed your interest in articles relating to C/C++ and would like to invite you to join the WikiProject C/C++, a group of Wikipedians devoted to improving articles related to C and C++. If you're interested, please consider adding yourself to the list of participants and joining the discussion on the talkpage. --—Sowlos
Thank you for that heads up. You're now the second person to alert me to a policy I wasn't aware of. I've actually read over the template before, but I so frequently see in-character voiceovers as narration that I just assumed it to be policy. Much obliged.

George A Romero origins
Hi, Richfife, many thanks for your time. I will try to explain this. The article's author, Manuel Pérez Grueiro, seems to have traced the genealogical tree of George A Romero up to five generations, or so it is said in that article. In Spain those genealogical trees must be build through parish records, as there is not any other kind of published source. According to Manuel Pérez Grueiro, Antonio Romero, born in Neda and whose parish records could be consulted, had three children, Jorge, Pura and Nena, and those three kids were born in Galicia but moved as a babies to Cuba. This article has been published in the local history review 'Revista de Neda'. We can trust that researcher more or less, but it is still a published research making a lot of sense and supported by other data. For instance, when we look for the distribution of name Romero in Spain we can find that Romero is 6 times more frequent in A Coruña's province than in any of the Castilian provinces (although that can't be taken as a definitive data). Another supportive data, yet not definitive, is that Galician community was one of the most important Spanish migrant communities in Cuba whereas the Castilians weren't (mainly because their distance to the ocean and harbours): es:Inmigración_española_en_Cuba. Then, how to demonstrate the, otherwise likely, Galician origin of George Romero's father? The only way is to scan and publish the parish records.
On the other side, the information about the Castilian origin is quite weak and could be explained by a mistranslation. George Romero's father is meaning that his origin is from Spain, to keep himself apart from Spanish or Hispanos from American countries, like Cuba or Puerto Rico. So he added 'Castilian, from Spain", as example of the Ultimate-Spanish European Spanish. Could that be understood as a Spanish from the region of Castile? Yes, of course, but also in a more general context as a European Spanish, particularly in that sentence when he compares himself with Cubans and Puertoricans.
I believe that the best solution is to keep both options. One is, at least apparently, more historical, and the author provides precise details such as the exact town, A Mourela do Medio, with only 126 inhabitants. The other one is from a closer source, but still quite vague and not provided in a clear context: they were talking about not being 'American', instead of talking about the exact town where he came from. Both sources are equally unreferenced, and it's a shame.
