List of state achievement tests in the United States[edit]

A future note, if you come across vandalism and the guy contributed nothing productive, please just don't fix a link he damaged, just undo all of it or put notice on the discussion page, or contact someone to fix it (if your nervous to), I had to recopy the stupid wiki table back, because the Undo was disabled by your edit. Not trying to offend or chew you out, just in the future.--The Navigators (talk)-May British Rail Rest in Peace. 04:12, 30 November 2009 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of E. Roy Fitzgerald[edit]

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

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on E. Roy Fitzgerald requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, contest the deletion by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, 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. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. Seduisant (talk) 03:45, 12 October 2011 (UTC)

Please follow official policies Seduisant. You broke the following rule through this action: "If you think someone unfairly removed "unsourced" content...
do find a source for it, make the referencing clear if it was already present, or explain why the content in question shouldn't require a cited source
do not summarily remove from the page everything which appears to be unsourced from." Wikipedia:Do not disrupt Wikipedia to illustrate a point. Maybe you have 6000 edits, rollback rights, and reviewer status, but you still need to follow the rules. I don't care how historical something is. If this person who changed history was worthy of deletion why isn't Paris Hilton deleted? Because of our policy of Wikipedia:Recentism. Stidmatt (talk) 17:17, 26 February 2012 (UTC)
  • Do please explain the above rant against Seduisant. In this particular case all they did was apply a totally valid {{db-person}} tag to the article. They did not remove any unsourced content. But I am actually writing to bring this message to your attention. The guy gave an e-mail address which can be seen here. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 10:32, 13 February 2013 (UTC)
  • I hope that he forms an account and can collaborate with some primary evidence on the Great American Streetcar Scandal. It would be useful to get some more information on the event from a source so heavily involved in it. I felt like Seduisant's quick removal of the article I made was premature and that compared to many other biographies we have on Wikipedia that have not been deleted Fitzgerald is notable enough to be mentioned. I don't know what happened a year ago, I blew my top and lost track of what was happening. I feel really embarrassed. I felt like the sources that were being used were highly biased and am glad to see it has been cleared up. I didn't notice on the talk page the age of the comments and didn't review my post on changing the article back to how it was before I posted it. Looking at it today PeterEastern has been doing a remarkable job at being constructive towards the article. My apologies, I hope I will never act so childish again. This is the worst I have felt in a long time. I guess everyone makes mistakes, especially me somedays. Hopefully at some point the article can be made into a star article, it is worth it. My apologies Seduisant Stidmatt (talk) 06:46, 14 February 2013 (UTC)

Occupy map[edit]

Your image File:Locations of Global 2011 Protests.png wrongly attributes the protests in Latin America as "Occupy Wall Street" inspired. Most of the world outside of the anglosphere are inspired by the "Indignants" movement from Madrid. I will remove your map from 15 October 2011 global protests. Pristino (talk) 00:25, 16 October 2011 (UTC)

Incorrect Pristino. Occupy Wall Street has had people sign up to have protests around the world and I am merely copying and pasting the places that people are currently protesting. I also put my source to the image on wikimedia commons, which is [www.occupytogether.org], the website people log their protests on. I made my map to include all the major protests, and if we want different maps for different protests that would be OK, but I have found it is somewhat difficult to distinguish between the different movements, so having one map for all the protests over the past few years makes sense.

SuggestBot Request[edit]

Hi, I noticed your username was added to User:SuggestBot/Requests, but not necessarily by you so I chose to skip it. If you do want the bot to stop by with suggestions for articles to edit, please add your username while logged in so I know it's OK to post the suggestions. Let me know if you have any questions. Cheers, Nettrom (talk) 21:22, 19 March 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, that was me. I just wasn't logged in, kind of fudged that one. Stidmatt (talk) 00:16, 20 March 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for April 27[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited Visa policy of Chile, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Macedonia (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. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
