Notability of Docta Buddah[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on Docta Buddah requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article appears to be about a real person, organization (band, club, company, etc.), 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 an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not indicate the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable. If this is the first page that you have created, then you should read the guide to writing your first article.

If you think that you can assert the notability of the subject, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the article's talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article 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 article that would confirm the subject's notability under Wikipedia 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. tomasz. 13:22, 30 December 2007 (UTC)

  • Yeah, I couldnt help but notice that the article was deleted before I even had the opportunity to show its notability. Thanks alot you jew. Ƿōdenhelm (talk) 00:11, 31 December 2007 (UTC)

Lions Clubs International-- knights for the blind[edit]

The Lions focus mainly on sight restoration and blindness prevention. Until 1925, the Lions had no cause into which to invest their energy. That year, Helen Keller charged them to become "knights for the blind." Since that time, the Lions have become the world's largest service organization. You might want to check out the article and then check out LCIF's home page for more info. I don't think the article gives sufficient emphasis to the Lions's role as knights for the blind.

Very sorry[edit]

I just blocked and then quickly unblocked your user account. I was working way too fast but still it is inexcusable. Please accept my humble apology for blocking your user account. Keeper | 76 | Disclaimer 21:50, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

On the other hand, personal attacks and insults to other editors will not be tolerated, per WP:CIVIL and WP:NPA. --Rodhullandemu (Talk) 22:39, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Keeper, I didnt even notice lol. Rodhullandemu, I actually do that on purpose, in order to make a point. For example, when dealing with pro-military conservatives who seem overly focused on "welfare" and "living off the government," I'll just turn it around and accuse the military of living off of my tax money, given that not one soldier pays for a single bit of anything out of his own pocket. Sounds communist to me. —Ƿōdenhelm (talk) 23:12, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Problem with that approach, SoF, is that it can be misinterpreted, as it apparently was, albeit temporarily. Now that you've hit the radar, so to speak, could I ask that you don't assume your audience will see it the same way you do? Irony and sarcasm are blunt instruments when only words are used to convey them. Now, let's move on please. --Rodhullandemu (Talk) 02:16, 20 February 2008 (UTC)
Heh, not a problem. As long as you believe in my political beliefs ;) —Ƿōdenhelm (talk) 04:38, 21 February 2008 (UTC)

Fist Fight?[edit]

Ok????? Uh... What did I do to tick you off? Saksjn (talk) 19:07, 10 March 2008 (UTC)

Shrine of Fire, threats of physical violence, such as your comment here, violate WP:no personal attacks. If you were joking, please say so here, and apologize to Saksjn. Thanks for listening. NCdave (talk) 06:35, 25 March 2008 (UTC)
I see that you have done so, and I thank you. NCdave (talk) 07:42, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

Its okay man. I've ran into a lot of adversity from users here lately, so my sence of humor has been a little spent. Good luck on future editing and thanks for clarifying. Saksjn (talk) 12:55, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

Re: Marriage proposal[edit]

I'm sorry it's taken me so long to get back to you, but I've been on a quest from Zeus. I'm flattered that you don't hate me. Can we honeymoon at Disneyworld? I've always wanted to ride the Haunted Mansion.

December 2008[edit]

Stop hand nuvola.svg This is the only warning you will receive for your disruptive edits.
The next time you post improperly-placed jokes on Wikipedia, as you did to Talk:Bernard L. Madoff, you will be blocked from editing. This edit is inappropriate humour. Other, less tolerant admins would have blocked you immediately for hate speech. Please do not make similar "jokes" again. Dweller (talk) 14:33, 16 December 2008 (UTC)

Middle English texts on Wikisource[edit]

Are you familiar with Wikisource? The English Wikisource contains a number of Middle English works but is inconsistent in presenting them:

  • Some of the Middle English texts (such as the Canterbury Tales) are as they appear in most modern textbooks: not even þ is used, let alone ȝ. For most English-language purposes that might serve that work well, but it is not the original text.
  • Other texts have thorn but not yogh.
  • One at least has both.
  • One has thorn but 3 instead of ȝ.

The sandbox does not have any of the English letters which have fallen from modern use.

An option is to request the creation of a Middle English Wikisource (or Middle English and Early-Middle Scots Wikisource) specifically for such texts, tasked to represent to text as they were written, not as in post-Caxton transcriptions. It would have to support the letters used in Middle Engish, including of course Þ, þ and Ȝ, ȝ. Unfortunately that is unlikely to get the nod, looking at Wikimedia's Language Proposal Policy.

The alternative is to get those letters added to the English Wikisource sandbox and go at it text by text (albeit that perhaps the Canterbury Tales ought to be duplicated not changed; Caxton's version has become as valid a work as the original after all this time).

Given your concern not to let yogh be forgotten, you might be interested. The next task is to work out how to do it.

Howard Alexander (talk) 23:23, 27 December 2008 (UTC)

Since when I have sorted it out: the English language Wikisource now has all necessary letters in the edit tools in the sandbox, in the drop-down under "Ligatures and symbols".
Howard Alexander (talk) 17:10, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

That works. —Ƿōdenhelm (talk) 17:34, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

Breakfast sausage[edit]

Is this sausage also consumed somewhere in England? Please help Food and drink project clarify it in the article text, if it is so, how and where. The article was deleted a while because it does not explanined any details on where and in which context the sausage was used. Thank you

Nothing in particular[edit]

I polished my bouzouki, and played a taximia for you, because you have heard of Skyhammer. I bet this makes a change from threats to block you... The Real Walrus (talk) 00:47, 17 January 2009 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (File:Daemonium1.jpg)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:Daemonium1.jpg. 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 'file' 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 "File" 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. Hazard-Bot (talk) 04:07, 21 November 2012 (UTC)
