Queen of Swords[edit]

I have added the court case re Linda Lukens but no episodes have I seen her credited ie: On TV, on DVD, on youtube. Am I missing it. Also I do not know who has wriiten about Tessie Santiago only doing close ups but De Longis did train her for two months and said on his website she was very good and that she was nearly injured fighting Raul in Honor thy Father when the director let it get out of hand. The bullwhip was used by The Queen in The Serpent, Takes a Thief The Uncle, The Return, The Hanged ManREVUpminster (talk) 17:34, 29 November 2009 (UTC)

  • I am still not happy about her being credited on the episodes as I can't find one. Good work with all the court info detail as it took me months before I found something I could cite. I think Xena is a bit of a red herring because if you look at Jay Firestone output he always had a strong female from La Femme Nikita, Highlander The Raven, Adventure Inc, Relic Hunter, Andromeda, Mutant X REVUpminster (talk) 21:53, 29 November 2009 (UTC)

Reply: It does not matter if you are happy or not. She is a part of the hirtory of the series and to leave her out of an encyclopedic work would be irresponsible to future readers. That is called pretending the ugly matter never happened, which it did.

    • Colonel Montoya often called her Dona as in this example "Dona Alvarado" [1] at aprox 7 mins REVUpminster (talk) 10:55, 30 November 2009 (UTC)
      • The info on Japanese DVD was interesting. I've ordrered one to check it out. Europe is region 2 but I notice the format is NTSC 4/3. I think it maybe a copy of the bootleg. Much of the artwork is from QoS wallpaperREVUpminster (talk) 11:33, 30 November 2009 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Andrew Helm[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Andrew Helm has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Unsourced BLP that appears to be a hoax. Fails WP:V, at the very least.

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 {{dated prod}} 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 {{dated prod}} 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.

Andrew Helm[edit]

Thanks for adding sources to the article. I know I tagged it for speedy deletion and then proposed deletion, but I'm not a mindreader. Anyway, the sourcing of the article is obviously the better outcome, so thanks and keep up the good work. A Stop at Willoughby (talk) 15:52, 1 December 2009 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of The Hunted"[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on The Hunted" requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A3 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is an article with no content whatsoever, or whose contents consist only of external links, a "See also" section, book references, category tags, template tags, interwiki links, a rephrasing of the title, or an attempt to contact the subject of the article. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content. You may 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.

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Incarnate Word, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Divine Word (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

Replaceable fair use File:Steve Hodges for Congress, 2013.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Steve Hodges for Congress, 2013.jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that this media item is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails the first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media item could be found or created that provides substantially the same information or which could be adequately covered with text alone. If you believe this media item is not replaceable, please:

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

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media item 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 creating new media yourself (for example, by taking your own photograph of the subject).

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media 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 the non-free content policy. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. (ESkog)(Talk) 04:32, 3 June 2013 (UTC)

ESkog, Thank you. I have a question as follows: Where do I insert the notation "di-replaceable fair use disputed?" Should that be placed above the admin warning or somewhere in the license? Also, I will call tomorrow to see if we can use the photo on WIkipedia. If they say yes at the office, what do I write on the page and where should that new notation be onthe page? Thank you!

Possibly unfree File:Andrew Helm, 2003.jpg[edit]

A file that you uploaded or altered, File:Andrew Helm, 2003.jpg, has been listed at Wikipedia:Possibly unfree files because its copyright status is unclear or disputed.

You are welcome to add comments to its entry at the discussion if you are interested in it not being deleted. Thank you. (ESkog)(Talk) 04:33, 3 June 2013 (UTC)

ESKog, The copyright owner has given me clear and free permission to have the photo placed at Wikipedia; however, since Qworty got the article removed, there is no real reason for Wikipedia to have it any more. Who disputed the the copyright? That is easily taken care of with a negative. More information is given at the photos talk page, File:Andrew Helm, 2003.jpg Taram (talk) 05:17, 3 June 2013 (UTC)

Salem, Missouri vandalism; reporting vandals to administrators[edit]

Thanks for the barnstar.

I posted the following on my user talk page and also put it here to be sure you see it.

Disruptive vandals can be reported and blocks or sanctions requested at Wikipedia:Administrator intervention against vandalism.
In this case, the vandal has only one recent vandalism and warning. He has only three vandalisms overall. The following guidelines are shown on the AIV page:
Important! Please remember the following:
1. The edits of the reported user must be obvious vandalism or obvious spam.
2. The user must have been given enough warnings to stop their disruptive behavior.
3. The warnings must have been given recently and the users must be active now, especially for unregistered users.
4. Requests for further sanctions against a blocked user (e.g., talk page, e-mail blocks) should go to AN/I, as a bot automatically removes accounts here that are blocked.
In this case, we would expect an administrator to conclude that this was one passing act and that the vandal will not strike again, or not do so any time soon. So it is likely that no administrator will take an action against this user address even though the vandalism was egregious. If the vandal comes back about three times in the near future or is threatening or posts especially vicious material about a living person, they may act at that time. I would advise not filing a report based on the one recent incident but do so if you see that the vandal continues his disruptions. Donner60 (talk) 08:07, 3 June 2013 (UTC)
Thank you for your information Donner60. I will be careful to not jump the gu on reporting this user's disruptive editing. Thank you again! Taram (talk) 05:56, 4 June 2013 (UTC)

Re: Yves Congar.[edit]

Hi Taram. Actually, I have no idea why there is this difference, but I noticed it and I would be glad if someone could explain to me the reason. Happy editing. --Mauro Lanari (talk) 01:13, 8 July 2013 (UTC)

Hi Mauro Lanari, Thank you! This is a very interesting subject (for me at least). I have been in contact with the gentleman who writes the page at http://www.catholic-hierarchy.org/bishop/bcongar.html. He thinks it might be an error that has spread across many Internet pages. He said that he would be correcting that tomorrow. Elizabth T. Groppe is credited with much of the Encyclopedia Britannica article you mentioned, so I will contact her tomorrow and see what she thinks about the spelling. I wanted to mention that I found Congar's obituary in the New York Times, printed two days after he died. It is at http://www.nytimes.com/1995/06/24/obituaries/yves-congar-french-cardinal-dead-91-vigorous-ecumenist-promoter-laity.html In the 10th paragraph, Congar is referred to as "Yves Marie-Joseph Congar." My feeling is that the article was printed so close to the time of his death as well as pretty close to his time of appointment as a cardinal, that that is the more accurate spelling of his name. Currently, I am reviewing "Yves Congar: Theologian of the Church" a historical monograph edited by Gabriel Flynn to see if his middle name is used anywhere in the text. I can see how using a hyphen between first and middle name may seem confusing since his fellow Dominican, Marie-Dominique Chenu, used Marie-Dominique as his complete first name. So, since it is meant to be one name, Marie-Dominique is rightly hyphenated. I will keep you informed as I learn anything more about punctuation of Congar's first and middle names. Taram (talk) 03:55, 8 July 2013 (UTC)
Hi again, Mauro Lanari! I did some more research about how Congar's name was printed in original English edition texts. I found that in English, when one puts a hyphen between nouns (including proper nouns), that is called a compound noun (or many nouns to create one word). Congar and those who spoke about him when he was alive would use just the name "Yves" as if it is a noun that stands by itself. I also looked at a first English edition of one of his books. There, his name is given as "Yves M.J. Congar." They didn't even use the hyphen between the two middle names (at least in the acronym form). I did find a reprint of an article which he wrote and in that his name is listed as "Yves M.-J. Congar." In that article, there is a hyphen between the two middle names to create a compound proper noun. I have not been able to find any original works in which there is a hyphen between his first (Yves) and middle names (Marie-Joseph). Again, I think that is because it would have made all three names into one name as in Marie-Dominique Chenu's name, especially when one looks at the idea of a compound noun. Would you feel more comfortable in removing the hyphen between Yves Congar's first and second name at his page with this new information? Thank you for your help and kindness in this matter. I am always so terrified that somebody is going to reply in utter anger, hurtfulness, and disgust about me personally. (That run with Qworty was not comfortable.) I will also post this at your talk page in case you would like to reply there. Thank you, again! Taram (talk) 07:44, 18 July 2013 (UTC)

Use {{more footnotes}} or {{refimprove}} at the top of the page. A good source for information on such things is Wikipedia:Template messages/Cleanup. Glad to see you looking at references. You can always add some yourself if the topic is one you know something about. StarryGrandma (talk) 03:55, 11 November 2013 (UTC)
Thank you talk

Disambiguation link notification for December 23[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Myles Connolly, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Roxbury (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.

Magdalen ≠ Mother-and-Baby[edit]

Thanks for adding the Magdalen Asylum entry here: Wikipedia:WikiProject_Catholicism#Controversial_articles_about_the_Catholic_Church. Just a quick clarification - these places were not Mother-and-Baby Homes, which are the subject of a different Catholic Church abuse controversy in Ireland. As I'm not a project member, I didn't want to make that edit myself. Tnx fr yr help on all this stuff! jxm (talk) 14:39, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

Thank you, jxm! What do you think a better sentence might be in order to describe the institutions in that case? I freely admit that I am far more knowledgeable about the theological ends of things than what the different groups were. Based on my understanding from an Irish American newspaper, there were 2 or 3 different groups that the Magdalene asylum page either directly talks about or alludes to. Please clarify where I am wrong...I understand that first there were the Magdalene asylums to teach a trade to "fallen women," then the laundries developed almost like workhouses for those who could not care for themselves, and then when the Irish free state developed, the Mother-Baby homes were created in conjunction with a few female religious congregations and that was the subject of the "Philomena" incident, book, and film (with Dame Judy Dench). I do not know if I have that straight or not. I would like to make sure that sentence at WikiProject Catholicism is correct, so if could write a phrase that you think might be more accurate, I could put it there to replace the one there now. Thank you again jxm!Taram (talk) 23:24, 12 August 2014 (UTC)
In that sentence, I think I would just replace Mother-and-Baby with 'residential institution'. Y're right, there's no shortage of confusing crud and allusions in the MA page. Regarding the actual distinction, the 20 or so Irish residential-care female asylums morphed into quasi-businesses that received much of their support through laundry contracts with state organizations and private companies. On the other hand, a M&B home was essentially a rather shameful maternity clinic and orphanage, as is depicted in Philomena. I think that some of these institutions had actually evolved from Famine-era workhouses, whereas others simply occupied premises that had previously been workhouses, as in Tuam. In WP, we haven't got a good handle on a general treatment of these homes yet; unfortunately, much of the new material has taken the form of sensationalist blogging about the latest scandal. Cheers! jxm (talk) 23:37, 12 August 2014 (UTC)
Thank you jxm (talk)! Your explanation, here, of what everything means is succinct, very interesting, and much easier to read/understand than the actual MA page (at least as it is right now). I appreciate your explanation of everything. The things that happened at the MB homes were beyond sad and truly awful for many. As you do, I look forward to the time when "sensationalist blogging about the latest scandal" (that is a great phrse, btw) no longer muddies how the page flows and explains the situation(s). I replaced the MB phrase with the one you recommended at Wikipedia:WikiProject_Catholicism#Controversial_articles_about_the_Catholic_Church. I think it reads well, but please let me know if there is anything else I should change there. Thank you, again! Taram (talk) 05:23, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

Hi jxm (talk): Thank you for working on the split and getting the rating section clarified. I noticed that our friend has noted what WikiProjects have an interest ion the new Magdalen Laundries page. I wonder if s/he will also rate it him or herself. SHould be interesting.Thank you again!! Taram (talk) 16:20, 24 August 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for your review. Could I ask you to repost it at Talk:Maximilian Kolbe? I would reply there, and it would be the best place for other interested editors to see our discussion. Cheers, --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 03:42, 17 November 2014 (UTC)

Thank you. Would you like to review the article for the B-class? If you think it meets the Wikipedia:Assessment B-class criteria, you can change the ratings on the talk page (and remove it from the list of requests at Wikipedia:WikiProject Biography/Assessment). You could also start the Wikipedia:Good Article review if you'd like. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 05:45, 18 November 2014 (UTC)
