Bronx gangs[edit]

OK, as you suggested, I started a small Bronx gangs page. Over to you. Bellagio99 22:35, 28 January 2007 (UTC)

response[edit]

hi - see Talk:Bronx High School of Science - I have a response to your questions, and a question for you. By the way, looking at the calendar - and having gone through the college application process twice in the last 5 years with my kids - I just want to wish you luck with it. My unasked-for advice is: don't worry about it - right now it seems like this choice is the most important thing you'll ever do, but it isn't. And there is much less difference between colleges than you might think, and what they want you to think. Tvoz 00:34, 4 December 2006 (UTC)

yes, I had a feeling you were waiting for an early decision (or do you mean early action...) - my son went to the Really Big Name, and it has a lot to commend it, but go with your eyes open, because some of what you find may be a little bit disappointing. (There are some surprisingly stupid students, for example, whose admission makes you scratch your head in wonder - but think "legacy" and maybe sports, connections, and you start to see the picture. No doubt like that at all the ivies.) You make it work for you -and you will find some people you can relate to - and there are certainly lots of doors open to you as a result. But truthfully there's little difference between them - there is a lot of hype. I think you'll be fine, wherever you end up. Science was a great school in my day - I'm glad it still is. (Btw, the yanadoo link for jcs isn't working - and technically you shouldn't be the one to post it because it's yours - but I will, if you fix it.) Tvoz 01:24, 4 December 2006 (UTC)
hey Ryan - hope things went well for you this week. If it did, and even if it didn't go exactly as you had hoped, don't worry - it is far less important than it feels to you right now. Tvoz 02:35, 16 December 2006 (UTC)
Princeton hates taking kids from New York - it is exceedingly hard to get in if you're from NYC. And they are elitest - the Dining Clubs are still strong, etc. Beautiful campus, but in the middle of nowhere. So don't despair. Just move on to the next options and if they come through, you'll have another choice. Personally I think they all should follow Harvard's lead and eliminate early decision and even early action -having choices in the Spring is really a lot better. ANyway, I mean it when I say don't worry about this. You'll get in other places, and once you're wherever you'll be, you'll see that it is a lot less important than yhou thought. Tvoz 06:42, 17 December 2006 (UTC)

April[edit]

Hey Ryan - just came across your name somewhere and thought I'd pop over and say hi - and ask if you've made a choice for next year yet. Whatever it will be, it will be fine. Trust me. Hope all's well. Tvoz |talk 00:35, 14 April 2007 (UTC)

Auditorium picture[edit]

Thank you firstly for your major recent contributions to the Bronx Science page. The auditorium picture seems to be a severe case of noise distortion, with the mix of colors in the green walls and the visible film/layer in front of the stage. It leads me to conclude that the picture was probably scanned, but may just need a digital touch with programs like Photoshop or Gimp. Of course, it's all the better if you have a primary digital copy out of the camera. (BTW if you are wondering about my account name, I am a Science freshman.)Bxsstudent 03:11, 5 December 2006 (UTC)

Hi Ryan,[edit]

In name, I am popularly known as Sam. Fortunately, I do have a free 9th period, and will try to meet you tomorrow.

Moving on to Wikipedia issues, I should have more closely observed the scientific process and realized that reflections can come from multiple sources. However a retake will be great.

Qazws11 also pointed out some important things. The debate team definitely needs elaboration. To get an idea of the history, go to the debate team web site http://bxscience.ny.schoolwebpages.com/education/staff/staff.php?sectionid=330, and visit the history section. It is depressing that Sadikow had been neglected as you described. He was the founder of our debate team, and under his guidance it rose to become one of the most prominent in the country. He is presented in the TOC Coaches Hall of Fame, being the second person to receive the honor in 1984. After Reidy drove out the five coaches in 2002, the team to a great extent lost its former glory. A renaissance was brought about by the new coach Jon Cruz, but the team never been as successful. I am a current member of the Lincoln Douglas team; Melanie is our director.

The history, like Science’s history itself, is filled with drama. We can get more details from Cruz of Melanie, and I will like to see it as an asset of the Wikipedia page soon. That of course, explains the relevance of the Sadikow room picture. The other pictures mentioned by Qazws11 are just as important. It seems that you will be a great help in the page development. I will like to see all the pictures on the page soon, the accompanying prose, and ultimately the path toward “good article.” Bxsstudent 01:02, 7 December 2006 (UTC)

Bx Science alumni[edit]

"X attended Bx. Science" is not an article. Are these people notable somehow? - crz crztalk 05:41, 26 December 2006 (UTC)


A tag has been placed on Bill Lann Lee, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article seems to be about a person, group of people, band, club, company, or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable, that is, why an article about that subject should be included in Wikipedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not assert notability may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, and if you can indicate why the subject of this article is notable, you may contest the tagging. To do this, add {{hangon}} on the top of the page and leave a note on the article's talk page explaining your position. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would confirm its subject's notability under the guidelines.

For guidelines on specific types of articles, you may want to check out our criteria for biographies, for web sites, for bands, or for companies. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. - CobaltBlueTony 05:43, 26 December 2006 (UTC)

Um, no. Only notable graduates should have their own articles. Do try to read up on our site before adding superfluous data. Thanks! Happy editing! - CobaltBlueTony 05:48, 26 December 2006 (UTC)
Yes, some info is better than none, but this is not "some info". State at a minimum who these people are and what is their claim to fame. A reference or two would be nice. Then we can call it a stub. Anything less is not productive. See WP:STUB - crz crztalk 05:53, 26 December 2006 (UTC)
Please don't be facetious with me. I can tell now that you're smart enough to get it. Why not read up a bit, and find really cool stuff no one knows with references no one's found yet? That would quickly put you in with the "elite" you're so "fond" of. - CobaltBlueTony 05:57, 26 December 2006 (UTC)
Well, Ryan D., I figured you for smart since you're a senior at Bronx High School of Science, as well as the founder of a company (at your age, no less!) and the Arts and Entertainment Editor of the Science Survey (a student literary endeavor, no doubt), AND the Technology Editor/Coordinator. You're at least smart enough to know how smart you're not, I hope. (This is a sign of a great intellect!) I imagine impulsiveness is a hallmark of youth, so in the future, read up just a teensy bit and be more sure before being bold. All the best in your future editing endeavors! - CobaltBlueTony 06:07, 26 December 2006 (UTC)
Cute. - CobaltBlueTony 06:13, 26 December 2006 (UTC)
No, that was just annoying. Go play somewhere else. Please. - CobaltBlueTony 06:17, 26 December 2006 (UTC)

Hello. In case you didn't know, when you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion, you should sign your posts by typing four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment. You may also click on the signature button Button sig2.png located above the edit window. This will automatically insert a signature with your name and the time you posted the comment.

socialites[edit]

Yeah, I'd be suspicious of anyone claiming to be a socialite alum of Science - that's pretty amusing. But 2 from the class of 2006? Maybe you know them. Just another repeat vandal. By the way - I saw the stuff above about Bill Lann Lee - what kind of page had you set up that they SD'd?? He is certainly notable, just doesn't have a page yet. Red does not mean not notable - I'm having this argument on an administrative page about lists of notables, in fact, and my position is that if a person has a page or could have a page (and that's the important part), they are by wiki definition notable and can be included on these lists of notables. And there may well be exceptions either way. Too many people here whose only contribution is to delete, which is why I am a member of the "inclusionists" (See my user page and follow the link in the userbox.) Tvoz 18:44, 26 December 2006 (UTC)

am I missing something?[edit]

on a quick look, the 208... changes seem ok - didn't look at Joseph's yet - am I missing something? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Tvoz (talkcontribs) 18:52, 31 December 2006 (UTC). Oh wait - I didn't go down far enough ... hang on... yeah yeah I forgot to sign. Shoot me.Tvoz | talk 18:53, 31 December 2006 (UTC)

I changed the incorrect BOE to Dept of Ed, but otherwise the changes looked right - don't know why those words were capitalized in the first place (no reason to) and nothing else bothered me - if you disagree, maybe I'm missing something as I'm kinda rushed, so change if yoj think needed. I don't like anon edits either, but this persons' seem helpful to me. Happpy new yearTvoz | talk 19:05, 31 December 2006 (UTC)

New sources[edit]

Hi Ryan,

First you can contact me at sam965@gmail.com. As I said the 50th Anniversary Journal is a compilation of some sources, but is far form complete. The authors skimmed though primary and secondary sources that Ms. Lampach said was impossible to fully explore. These are stored at the library, to which Lampach offered me access but seemed skeptical about my requests. I looked through a repository of news articles filled with the new principal conflict and old articles of little major importance. I briefly looked over stacks of additional materials, including a list of notable alumni according to their year of graduation and career.

The 50th Anniversary Journal also notes a Silver Anniversary Journal form 1963, at which Kennedy supposedly said the words currently in the history section. I you go to the library and ask for this "Silver Jubilee Celebration" and access to the additional sources, you will definitely add more legitimacy to the requests. After all I will first be seen as a freshman. It will make later access much easier. I will bring back the 50th Anniversary Journal tomorrow.

By the way you seemed to have gotten rather active in Wikipedia's internal affairs. I am an open source fan, and triple boot SUSE KDE, FreeBSD Genome, and Windows. Bxsstudent 02:10, 13 February 2007 (UTC)

Bart King[edit]

Hey. In February, you mentioned that you'd be willing to look at this article and give it a thorough copy edit. I just wanted a neutral observer to have a go at it before I put it up for FAC. Have you had a chance to look it over yet? Thanks a lot for your willingness to help.--Eva bd 20:17, 9 April 2007 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with Image:DSC02605.JPG[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Thank you for uploading Image:DSC02605.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 image. If you know this information, then you can add a copyright tag to the image description page.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thanks again for your cooperation. Strangerer (Talk) 10:25, 25 May 2007 (UTC)

Kent FAC[edit]

Hi. I'm sorry to bother you, but as a LoCE member, I just wondered if you would be willing to have a look through the Kent article. It is currently a Featured Article Candidate and needs a copy-edit for grammar by someone who hasn't yet seen it. Any other ways to improve the article would also be welcome. Thank you very much, if you can. Epbr123 20:58, 12 July 2007 (UTC)

hey![edit]

Nice to hear from you Ryan- best of luck at GW. My daughter almost went there actually - she was accepted and we spent some time visiting and in the end she decided against it, but it did have a lot going for it. Great location, excellent internship opportunities, cool food hall.... DC is wonderful. I knew things would work out for you - told you so! I haven't been too active on the Science article lately - caught up in the political ones - but I saw that request for citations on worldwide reputation and figured it was the least I could do. Singapore and Philippines, not bad. I'm sure there are many others too. Have a good rest of summer, and good luck! Freshman year sucks, but it gets much better. Don't go crazy.

Washington DC Meetup[edit]

It was nice to meet you Sunday, and I hope we can keep in contact. Of course, some of the stuff I told you about BHSoS history would be flagged as "unconfirmed" if I tried to edit the article to include it, though I know it happened because I was there. But we can continue to discuss it if there's anything I can tell you about -- just remember, I was there from 1954-58, so earlier or later stuff is just as much hearsay to me as it is to you! -- BRG (talk) 19:23, 12 December 2007 (UTC)

League of Copyeditors roll call[edit]

CopyeditorIcon3.png Greetings from the League of Copyeditors. Your name is listed on our members page, but we are unsure how many of the people listed there are still active contributors to the League's activities. If you are still interested in participating in the work of the League, please follow the instructions at the members page to add your name to the active members list. Once you have done that, you might want to familiarise yourself with the new requests system, which has replaced the old /proofreading subpage. As the old system is now deprecated, the main efforts of the League should be to clear the substantial backlog which still exists there.
The League's services are in as high demand as ever, as evinced by the increasing backlog on our requests pages, both old and new. While FA and GA reviewers regularly praise the League's contributions to reviewed articles, we remain perennially understaffed. Fulfilling requests to polish the prose of Wikipedia's highest-profile articles is a way that editors can make a very noticeable difference to the appearance of the encyclopedia. On behalf of the League, if you do consider yourself to have left, I hope you will consider rejoining; if you consider yourself inactive, I hope you will consider returning to respond to just one request per week, or as many as you can manage. Merry Christmas and happy editing, The League of Copyeditors.

Copy edits and the massive backlog[edit]

Hey there!

I'm sending you this because I noticed you were active in the former league of copy-editors. I joined the LOCE something like a few days before it became historical, and have been making a somewhat lonely effort to reduce the copy-edit backlog, so I've been curious - why did the LOCE close, are there any efforts going on out there to reduce the copy-edit backlog, and do you think there's a point in establishing (and would you join) a wikiproject purely to maintain the category of articles needing copy edits?

I've been having a hard time getting people on related projects (WP:PR, WP:GAN, etc) to help with the backlog, so I'm trying to gather suggestions or help regarding starting a project simply to maintain the category of articles needing copy edit.

Thanks! ;) --Samuel Tan (talk) 13:51, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

Location change (and reservations made) for DC meetup[edit]

I stopped by TGI Friday's this evening and was less than impressed. They apparently don't take reservations, except perhaps if you call 24 hours ahead of time. The staff was not so helpful, and the menu has hardly anything vegetarian which is an issue for some people.

So, I checked out the Bertucci's pizza/Italian place across the street (21st & I St NW). Their staff couldn't have been more helpful, and think it will be fairly quiet so we will be able to hear each other. So, reservations are made for Bertucci's at 5pm on Saturday. --Aude (talk) 02:39, 2 June 2009 (UTC)

LC[edit]

Ryan: thanks for your message; good to see you also and catch up. I'm happy to give you both a tour (and I may invite another friend if that's ok)... the late morning/early afternoon is good for me; say 11 or 12pm? would that work? We can meet by the Neptune fountain in front of the Jefferson Building. If you don't know where it is, I can tell you. Let me know--FeanorStar7 (talk) 01:55, 7 June 2009 (UTC)

12 is fine; and yes MZM is the mysterious friend; we all sat together at Froggy Bottom; the Neptune fountain is in front of the Jefferson Building; (1st St SE, between Independence Ave & East Capitol Sts; closest metro: Capitol South; also walkable from Union Station); also I will have my cell with me; I will send you the number by email; in case of delays, etc.--FeanorStar7 (talk) 08:14, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

Frank Sesno[edit]

Well, I was sort of curious as to what you'd been doing on Wikipedia, and I saw this, and I thought I recalled his name as a radio or TV newsman, so I looked up the article.

File source problem with File:Ahmed-taleb-ibrahimi-lettersfromprison.jpg[edit]

File Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading File:Ahmed-taleb-ibrahimi-lettersfromprison.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, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, their copyright should also be acknowledged.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 22:56, 8 June 2009 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. FASTILY (TALK) 22:56, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Research at The George Washington University[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Research at The George Washington University, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G11 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page seems to be unambiguous advertising which only promotes a company, product, group, service or person and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become an encyclopedia article. Please read the guidelines on spam as well as Wikipedia:FAQ/Business for more information. 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.

Replaceable fair use File:Ahmed-taleb-ibrahimi-lettersfromprison.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Ahmed-taleb-ibrahimi-lettersfromprison.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. 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. Rettetast (talk) 10:49, 13 February 2010 (UTC)

Hi Ryan: thanks for the message and the heads up about DC10. I am definitely attending.

I expect to go, but as always I'm calling it only "probable" though likely. Haven't been in touch for quite a while, hope everything is going well w/ you!

I don't really know how to run a bot on Wikipedia, though I know people do -- so I'll beg off on anything involving that. -- BRG (talk) 17:07, 6 May 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for taking initiative with DC meetup! I'm involved with Digital Capital Week and think it would be excellent to have a Wikipedia event then.
I suggest asking User:Cbrown1023 or making a request at Wikipedia:Bot requests for getting meetup notices out. What the bot operator needs is a list of users who are supposed to get the notice. We have a list from previous meetups, but please don't forget to remove people who have requested not to be notified again. (check last 1-2 meetup pages) --Aude (talk) 20:23, 6 May 2010 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Research at The George Washington University[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Research at The George Washington University has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. The speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. Guoguo12--Talk--  23:40, 6 February 2011 (UTC)

An exciting month of wiki events![edit]

Hello there,

I am pleased to say that April will be a very exciting month for Wikipedia in Washington, DC. We have a lot of different events coming up, so you will have a lot to choose from.

First, a reminder that our second annual Women in the Arts Edit-a-Thon will take place on Sunday, March 30 at the National Museum of Women in the Arts.

Coming up in April, we have our first-ever Open Government WikiHack with the Sunlight Foundation on April 5–6! We are working together to use open government data to improve the Wikimedia projects, and we would love your help. All are welcome, regardless of coding or editing experience. We will also be having a happy hour the day before, with refreshments courtesy of the Sunlight Foundation.

On Friday, April 11 we are having our first edit-a-thon ever with the Library of Congress. The Africa Collection Edit-a-Thon will focus on the Library's African and Middle East Reading Room. It'll be early in the morning, but it's especially worth it if you're interested in improving Wikipedia's coverage of African topics.

The following day, we are having our second annual Wiki Loves Capitol Hill training. We will discuss policy issues relevant to Wikimedia and plan for our day of outreach to Congressional staffers that will take place during the following week.

There are other meetups in the works, so be sure to check our meetup page with the latest. I hope to see you at some of these events!

All the best,
James Hare

Wikimedia DC invites revolutionaries, free thinkers, and other sundry editors to a DC WikiSalon[edit]

The WikiSalon is a special meetup usually held during the first and third full weeks of every month, from 7 PM to 9 PM. It's an informal gathering of Wikimedia enthusiasts, who come together to discuss Wikimedia wikis and collaboratively edit. There's no set agenda, and guests are welcome to recommend articles for the group to edit or edit on their own.

If you're coming by Metro, the closest station is Dupont Circle (on the Red Line). If you're driving, a lot of parking opens up downtown after 6:30 PM, so finding a parking space (even a free one) should be easy. Once you've found the building, go to Cove on the second floor. We will be in the conference room.

When: Wednesday, September 17, 2014 at 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM

Where: The Cove, Dupont Circle, 1730 Connecticut Avenue NW, 2nd floor, 20009, DC
