Tincture[edit]

Your "citation needed" tag is rather pointless. The word "Or" could be capitalized for any of three reasons: 1) In some styles of blazoning, all color words are capitalized. 2) To emphasize a word which is semantically very important for blazoning, but which is short (two letters) and in its lowercase form easily visually overlooked (containing no typographic wide letters, ascenders, or descenders). 3) The rather obvious fact that the conjunction and tincture name are otherwise spelled identically.

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Anthrosexual[edit]

Since you are part of Wikipedia:WikiProject Sexology and sexuality, i would appreciate it if you could voice your opinion on the article Anthrosexual, which is currently up for deletion.--Cooljuno411 (talk) 06:38, 2 April 2008 (UTC)

Profanity Discussion Edit[edit]

Hi, recently you undid an edit modifying a previous comment, saying "removal of other people's comments deserves at least an edit summary". However I'd just like to let you know that I was the one who both wrote and modified the comment, and in any case I left a description of my changes in the subsequent comment. --Iamthedeus (talk) 14:17, 5 April 2008 (UTC)

Thanks! A little late, oh well. I learn something new everyday on Wiki :-D I appreciate you taking the time to explain. MikelZap (talk) 16:06, 8 May 2008 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Play party (BDSM) (2nd nomination)[edit]

Re:You spread it?[edit]

Iam sorry if you not understood the meaning. The images in that article is together. It is sick too see those sort of images when together so i spread the images to all over the article. --SkyWalker (talk) 17:04, 23 June 2008 (UTC)

till[edit]

I always assumed that the word "till" was solely used as a verb (or noun)—e.g. to till land and the like—and that its use was incorrect. Perhaps I'm wrong, but "until" is more modern and standard now anyway, is it not? = ∫tc 5th Eye 14:31, 7 July 2008 (UTC)

Hey, tone it down a bit[3]. This isn't a contest to see who knows the language better. But if it were, I would win:[4]

V. Summary and Conclusions

  1. TILL and UNTIL are not synonyms.
  2. UNTIL is marked for the distinctive feature RESULT which makes it suitable to represent time from the point of view of KAIROS: "a point in time filled with a significance, charged with a meaning derived from its relation to the end."
  3. TILL is unmarked for PROCESS/RESULT which makes it suitable to represent time both as CHRONOS: "passing of time" or "waiting time" or KAIROS.
  4. This semantic distinction is what motivates their non-random distribution in both spoken and written discourse on the micro- and the macro-levels.
  5. The theoretical and methodological motto of this paper is therefore:
MEANING MOTIVATES DISTRIBUTION!
Even though the semantic distinction between TILL/UNTIL is subtle, in the words of Dwight Bolinger (1971:17): ... who says semantic distinctions have to be gross?

Ejaculation[edit]

The video add nothing to the article, would you add a video two people actively engaged in intercourse for the intercourse article? Yami (talk) 21:56, 22 July 2008 (UTC)

Ejaculation article[edit]

You have commented in the past either for or against a video or image on the ejaculation article. There is currently a survey discussing this topic if you care to offer your opinion. Atom (talk) 13:49, 4 August 2008 (UTC)

"sensible order"[edit]

Ah, I just noticed that they're in alphabetical order. That's okay, I guess. I think the categorization looks nicer to have things in order:

  • World religion
    • Western\Abrahamic religion by chronological order (Judaism, Christianity, Islam)
    • Eastern\Dharmic religion by chronological order (Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism, Taoism etc..)
  • New religious movements and smaller religious traditions

Hence:

  • Judaism
  • Christianity
  • Islam
  • Hinduism
  • Buddhism
  • Taoism
  • Wicca

This way, the content is actually put together somewhat by category, rather than jumping around across the globe, theologically.

However, I'm not going to bother debating extensively over something so trivial. If you disagree, that's fine too.   Zenwhat (talk) 02:42, 20 August 2008 (UTC)

A year and a half or so I did exactly that, and some editor was offended that I put Judaism before Christianity! I explained it was in order chronologically, but he fought it, which is why it was in the order you found it. Thanks Atom (talk) 03:57, 24 August 2008 (UTC)

Masturbation[edit]

I hit 'enter' before I could finish. I was going to say that you should use images of other things, such as dildos and etc. instead. Masturbation does not exclusively require the use of fingers to achieve a climax. A Prodigy ~In Pursuit of Perfection~ 20:19, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with Image:Label.svg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Label.svg. You've indicated that the image is being used under a claim of fair use, but you have not provided an adequate explanation for why it meets Wikipedia's requirements for such images. In particular, for each page the image is used on, the image must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Can you please check

  • That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's description page for each article the image is used in.
  • That every article it is used on is linked to from its description page.

Please take a look at the Weatherman/Terrorism RfC[edit]

Please take a look at the Weatherman/Terrorism RfC Hi! This is a form notice sent to several editors who have contributed recently at the Bill Ayers page or talk page (sent in accordance with WP:CANVASS). A proposal has been made near the bottom of Talk:Weatherman (organization)/Terrorism RfC concerning the Bill Ayers article in connection with use of the word "terrorism" and discussion of it in the article. Other proposals have been made concerning similar articles, and a large amount of information about sources on this topic are available on the page. Please take a look and consider supporting or opposing some of the proposals. Also, if you think "violent" is a better description for Ayers or Weatherman, please take another look at Talk:Bill Ayers#Ayers and violence. Thanks. -- Noroton (talk) 02:50, 22 September 2008 (UTC)

P.S. Awesome pic on your user page, by the way. Wow. -- Noroton (talk) 02:50, 22 September 2008 (UTC)

New sections[edit]

Mea culpa yet I did not wish to post under Onanism or ejaculation. Though perhaps that is where anything on the University of Hertfordshire belongs. OyeboOyebo (talk) 21:52, 27 October 2008 (UTC)

Re: PNG[edit]

No, the images are not vector based, nor do I have much interest in making them vector based. I just don't really like working with vector graphics software. And typically, converting raster images to vector images results in a degradation in quality. As for saving them in the .PNG format... they are saved as .PNG files. On the issue of making them more "adaptable", I'm not sure I follow what you're talking about. --SeedFeeder (talk) 09:40, 17 November 2008 (UTC)

Rollback enabled on your account[edit]

Wikipedia Rollback.png

Hello The Wednesday Island,

I have noticed that you revert quite a bit of vandalism. Since you have demonstrated that you have a good grasp of what constitutes vandalism, I have enabled rollback on your account. Keep in mind these things when going to use rollback:

  • Getting rollback is no more momentous than installing Twinkle.
  • Rollback can be used to revert vandalism only, and not good faith edits.
  • Rollback may be removed at any time.

If you no longer want rollback, then contact me and I'll remove it. Also, for some information on how to use rollback, you can view this page. I'm sure you'll do great with rollback, just leave me a message on my talk page if you run into troubles or have any questions about appropriate/inappropriate use of rollback. Happy editing!

Stranded comment[edit]

I apologize for this mistake. I thought that was in response to the other comment. That's why I started the new section. It was getting confusing! Thanks for fixing it, and have a good one, hmwithτ 19:02, 15 January 2009 (UTC)

Oh you're right[edit]

Let me try to fix it... 24.18.96.38 (talk) 19:48, 31 May 2009 (UTC)

Here http://www.nytimes.com/2009/06/01/us/01tiller.html?hp —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.18.96.38 (talk) 19:50, 31 May 2009 (UTC)
Maybe you can find where that "to the point" statement comes from. I perused the website and didn't see it. It says he does second and third trimester abortions, so this would seem to include the period of viability (generally for the mother's safety, I presume). I'm not sure the statement is necessary either way. Cheers. 24.18.96.38 (talk) 19:58, 31 May 2009 (UTC)

Re: Tiller[edit]

Thank you very much! I don't feel that I've done that much, but I'm glad it's been helpful.

AfD nomination of King & King[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

An editor has nominated one or more articles which you have created or worked on, for deletion. The nominated article is King & King. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also Wikipedia:Notability and "What Wikipedia is not").

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion(s) by adding your comments to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/King & King. Please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate.

Please note: This is an automatic notification by a bot. I have nothing to do with this article or the deletion nomination, and can't do anything about it. --Erwin85Bot (talk) 01:21, 12 December 2009 (UTC)

Planned Parenthood[edit]

I think this guy/gal is being a troll. Mattnad (talk) 17:05, 8 June 2010 (UTC)

Better to ignore him going forward. See if that make a difference.
Saw your recent effort with the Anon. S/He will be back and say something like, "You haven't addressed my comments". I think the editor is just playing a game. I suggest we ignore these efforts since I believe this is about getting a reaction and not doing any good for the project.Mattnad (talk) 18:22, 29 June 2010 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Reviewing[edit]

Are you interested in becoming a reviewer? It would eliminate the need to have your edits approved as you did on Asperger syndrome just now. Im pretty sure there'd be no objection to you having the permission unless youve recently been vandalizing or adding uncited information to articles (which I see no evidence of based on looking at your recent edits). If you are interested let me know or post an entry on Wikipedia:Requests for permissions/Reviewer. Soap 17:38, 5 July 2010 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for File:University of Hertfordshire achievement of arms.png[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:University of Hertfordshire achievement of arms.png. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the file description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. 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 any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Eeekster (talk) 01:13, 6 September 2010 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:University of Hertfordshire achievement of arms.png[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:University of Hertfordshire achievement of arms.png. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image 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 images 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 any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Skier Dude2 (talk) 06:39, 7 March 2011 (UTC)

Completely new abortion proposal and mediation[edit]

In light of the seemingly endless disputes over their respective titles, a neutral mediator has crafted a proposal to rename the two major abortion articles (pro-life/anti-abortion movement, and pro-choice/abortion rights movement) to completely new names. The idea, which is located here, is currently open for opinions. As you have been a contributor in the past to at least one of the articles, your thoughts on the matter would be appreciated.

The hope is that, if a consensus can be reached on the article titles, the energy that has been spent debating the titles of the articles here and here can be better spent giving both articles some much needed improvement to their content. Please take some time to read the proposal and weigh in on the matter. Even if your opinion is simple indifference, that opinion would be valuable to have posted.

To avoid concerns that this notice might violate WP:CANVASS, this posting is being made to every non-anon editor who has edited either page (or either page's respective talk page) since 1 July 2010, irrespective of possible previous participation at the mediation page.

Nomination of Thomas Bushnell for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Thomas Bushnell is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Thomas Bushnell until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. Msnicki (talk) 14:27, 7 July 2013 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Pride 2014[edit]

Hi TWI. In case you are not aware, there is an upcoming campaign to improve coverage of LGBT-related topics on Wikipedia, culminating with an international edit-a-thon on June 21. See Wiki Loves Pride 2014 for more information. If you are interested, you might consider creating a page for a major city (or cities!) near you, with a list of LGBT-related articles that need to be created or improved. This would be a tremendous help to Wikipedia and coverage of LGBT culture and history. Thanks for your consideration, and please let me know if you have any questions! --Another Believer (Talk) 15:59, 9 May 2014 (UTC)
