I answered your question on the Harpsichord talk page. As a rule the talk pages are used for commenting on the article rather than general chat: so were you suggesting that Beecham's assessment should be added to the article? By all means add the quote, provided you can find a reference, and provided you can find a place in the article where it would be appropriate! Don't worry about making mistakes: if people disagree with your edits (and that is bound to happen sometimes) they should do so civilly. --RobertGtalk 15:09, 11 April 2008 (UTC)


Hello. Thanks for bringing Mexican pewter to my attention! It has been deleted as "blatant advertising".

If you are interested, there are a few procedures for nominating articles for deletion. The first step is often a discussion - which is your current approach, and is to be commended! A nomination at articles for deletion gives everyone a chance to discuss the matter. There is a more lightweight procedure for more clear-cut cases which is documented at proposed deletion. For articles that may be blatantly inappropriate for an encyclopedia there is a much speedier process documented at criteria for speedy deletion. Best wishes. --RobertGtalk 11:38, 17 April 2008 (UTC)

Red Army Moscow, Quebec Surnames, Flags[edit]

Re: CSKA Moscow. I don't know the answers to those questions and I agree that they are important to the article, and the article needs fleshing out. Gives me something to research next time I'm bored. Re: Quebec surnames. They all desended from a pretty samll group of settlers. I'm suprised the list isn't even shorter. Re: Flags. I didn't pick the Maryland flag for that userbox but I'm always interest in vexological information. Cheers. --Kevlar (talkcontribs) 08:37, 2 May 2008 (UTC)

Medical list[edit]

Hello. I assume you mean the list of eponymous medical signs? Are you thinking of suggesting moving it to something like "List of eponymous medical terms"? You may well be right, but I am afraid here is a subject I know very little about! I can advise you what to do, though… The best first step is probably to ask for opinions at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Medicine. You can find out about the Wikipedia procedure for moving pages at Wikipedia:Requested moves. Good luck! Best wishes, RobertGtalk 09:06, 5 May 2008 (UTC)

Navy-Marine Corps image[edit]

Great! I had been reviewing free Flickr images to no avail & the military image site only had the older images. I haven't been the stadium since the 90's, so from my recollection the image seemed fine. I watched the new Hopkins (TV series) show last night. Finally, a medical program the lacrosse team can be proud of . . . Thanks for digging in regarding the image, --Mitico (talk) 21:50, 27 June 2008 (UTC)

Regarding the Homewood image, it looks about right to me. I was only there once for a JHU/UVA game in '04/05(?), but the image seems to match this Johns Hopkins Athletic Facilites. I think the blacktop is where they put the tv booms & all. Regardless, I had not previously noticed this image below (thumbnailed).
JHU 001.jpg
. This image may work, but when thumnailed may be too tiny to see. You are welcome to change it. The flickr photo has the logo framed nicely, which is why I used it. For what it is worth, I think that is a field hockey net in the photo. --Mitico (talk) 18:42, 30 June 2008 (UTC)

Hi. I notice that you nominated Jämtlandssången for deletion, but something messed up the template, and it did not work. No problem, happens to everyone. Rather than re-format your deletion request as a Proposed deletion, I simply merged and redirected the article. So, Jämtlandssången is now a redirect to Republic of Jamtland, which now mentions the name and existance of the song. Crisis averted.

Former Army Specialist Five Nam Vet. Cuprum17 (talk) 01:23, 26 August 2008 (UTC)

Spec 4 not NCO[edit]

Technically not. The NCO rank for pay grade E-4 in the Army is Corporal and for paygrade E-5 is Sergeant. Specialists are not considered NCO's in todays Army and weren't in the day of Specialist Four and Specialist Five. Back in the day (1967) when I was a young Specialist Five in Nam, I was not welcome in any Army NCO Club but a Corporal could go in anytime. I solved that problem by going to the Air Force NCO Club at Bien Hoa AFB where I was stationed and they didn't care one way or another. Later, all the Specialist Five's in our detachment were converted to Sergeant (E-5) and no questions were asked at the door of the Army NCO Club. To them, I was a NCO. Nowadays the Clubs on most military bases are consolidated with all ranks welcome. NCO'S in the 60's were expected to have the knowledge to lead Privates and Specialists in all kinds of situations and have a good working knowledge of dismounted drill. Specialists (Four and Five or even the occasional Six!) did not have the knowledge or skills to do that, but did supervise other Specialists or Privates that were in there unit with the same or similar job descriptions (MOS). This kind of brings back some old memories.

"the book, which was apparently self or vanity press published, may not even be copyrighted."

Doesn't matter. Unless otherwise specified, everything is copyrighted the minute it's written.

And how do we 100% know that this was in fact Frei's granddaughter who submitted the material? Okay, sure, in this particular context I'll believe that it was Frei's granddaughter, but what about in other cases? "Yeah, I'm the guy who owns that website / wrote that book / took that photo! Trust me!", we're told, and that can lead to problems. If there's some way of confirming that it's her, and that she understands about releasing the rights to the text, that'd be different.

Not knowing of Wikipedia etiquette, I have carelessly posted this (You left me a message on honest NCAA Championship counting) -- I _think_ it kind of puts the 1990's 2000's Syracuse flash in perspective. please feel free to delete when done

The 2000 decade of lacrosse has passed and we can look back at some awesome lacrosse. The ‘almost’ of the Duke ‘dreadnought’ brought down in the 2008 NCAA semifinals by the same approach Hopkins used (unsuccessfully)in the 1973 Final game to counter Maryland's Frank Urso, the 2009 season dominated by Virginia until the playoffs, the flurry of OT games – The fantastic players, already graduated and new! And how did the decade look? Well, Syracuse did well, winning 5 national titles, including the last two. Could this be a dynasty? To answer that question I looked at the national championship records.

First off, we need to remember that there has been more than one national championship. The NCAA Men’s Division I championship, based on a tournament, began in 1971. Before that, during the years of 1936 – 1972 the national championship was the Wingate Trophy. The Wingate trophy was preceded by the US ILA title (1881 – 1935). Because they were not based on a tournament, ties were possible in both the Wingate Trophy and the USILA championship. Combining the three, there have been 143 champions, covering the period 1881- 2009, except for the years 1948 and 1990, with no champion either of those years.

The historical data show that powerful teams do not fit neatly into decades. I found some that seemed obvious and they are listed below, along with the years and their number of titles during that period:

TEAM PERIOD TITLES/ SEASONS Harvard 1881 – 1887 6 in 6 Hopkins 1898 – 1915 12 in 20 Navy 1918 – 1925 6 in 10 Hopkins 1926 – 1934 6 in 9 Maryland 1936 – 1940 4 in 6 Navy 1960 – 1967 8 in 10 Hopkins 1978 – 1987 6 in 9 Syracuse 1988 – 1995 5 in 7 Princeton 1996 – 2001 4 in 6 Syracuse 2002 – 2009 4 in 8

Except for the Syracuse 2002 - 2009 (50%), these 'dynasties' had a championship percentage of 67% or higher.

The historical data also show some interesting facts. Swarthmore (!) won 4 titles (1901, 1904, 1905, and 1910). St John’s of Md(!) had a streak of 3 national championships (1929 – 1931) -- Currently, their only intercollegiate sport is croquet. Navy won 8 titles in a row in 1960 – 1967. Syracuse’s first title was in 1922 (tie with Navy), followed by 1983, 1988, 1989, and 1990.

For what it is worth, I compiled a listing of the Team of the Decade from the 1880’s through the 2000’s; It sort of makes you realize that there is a lot of history and tradition that we don’t think of each day. The Teams of the Decade are listed below. Because there are occasionally two teams with an equal number of titles in a given decade, it is worthwhile to look for listings in consecutive decades.

DECADE TEAM(S) TITLES 1880’s Harvard 6 1890’s Lehigh 4 1900’s Hopkins 6 1910’s Navy/Hopkins 3/3 1920’s Navy 4 1930’s Maryland/Hopkins 3/3 1940’s Hopkins/ Navy 3/ 3 1950’s Hopkins/Army 3/ 3 1960’s Navy 8 1970’s Hopkins 4 1980’s Hopkins 4 1990’s Princeton 5 2000’s Syracuse 5

Notice that the Princeton and Syracuse decades were 5 wins -- A number only achieved three times before, and the most recent one was affected by 14 winners in 10 years. These two teams may be ones we look back upon with awe.

A thought that comes to mind when looking at these statistics is who has won the most titles. When that is considered, some of the teams with more titles are not a surprise based on today’s winning teams, while some are quite a surprise. The all-time leader is Hopkins with 34 titles, followed by Navy (21), Princeton (15), and Syracuse (13). These are followed by Maryland (8) and Army (8). If these totals are adjusted by counting ‘shared’ titles as a fraction the numbers of titles change but the order remains the same: Hopkins (34-2/3), Navy (17-2/3), Princeton (13-1/3), and Syracuse (12-1/2). When only the 38 NCAA Men’s Division 1 titles are considered, the leaders are: Syracuse with 10 and Hopkins with 9. (Also Princeton with 6; Virginia and North Carolina with 4 each; Cornell with 3 each; Maryland with 2)

As lacrosse increases in popularity and the number of high school and college players and teams grow, collegiate lacrosse will only become more competitive and things like Harvard’s streak of 6 titles in 1881 – 1887 and Navy’s 8 in a row in the 1960’s will become much less likely. So-called ‘modern” teams have only achieved three in a row -- Hopkins (1978 – 1980), Syracuse (1988 – 1990), and Princeton (1996 – 1998) (with the possibility for three in a row from Syracuse in 2010). These are likely to be the longest streaks we will see for some time, but who knows? So, for the 2010 season, we may have a ‘dynasty’ team in Syracuse. If they win in 2010, they will have achieved three in a row, which seems to be the limit for the modern Men’s Division One game. Of course, as the records tell us, dynasties fade away. With the 2010 season approaching fast, we may see powerful Cornell and North Carolina teams emerge; Cornell has five titles beginning in 1907, while North Carolina is more of a newcomer, with 4 beginning in 1981. One thing we can be sure of is that it probably will not work out like the pre-season prognosticators predict (including me), and it will be great to watch! —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:29, 18 March 2010 (UTC)

Deepwater Horizon[edit]

Hiya Toyokuni. I really don't want to get in a pissing contest about this, and I agree with some of the stuff you removed. However, a new user asking a question on a subject directly related to the article in question is absolutely appropriate use of the talk page, in my opinion. Not only are you probably driving away a new user that could probably contribute to this and other articles, you're doing it for pedantic reasons. The question Alan Jones asked is a good one, in my opinion. It points out a hole in the article (namely, why can't they just cut off the BOP and cap it with a flange or something). A good answer could be incorporated into the article (under "attempts to stop the leak"). Anyway, I'm going to put the question back in. If you really want to, go ahead and revert again but I'll be filing it as a three revert and washing my hands of the matter (an admin will come along and decide if your criteria for talk page inclusion are appropriate). I don't really want to do that, but I also completely disagree with this removal, particularly since it involves biting a newbie. TastyCakes (talk) 19:25, 3 June 2010 (UTC)

That's a very valid concern, the talk page is getting quite unmanagable. I think the auto-archiving bot needs to be tweaked to archive more frequently, I'm not sure maybe we can manually archive some of it too (I don't know if that screws up the auto-archiver). And in some cases, I agree with you outright deletion is probably a good idea (most especially when people cut and past news stories on the page, likely copyright violation as well as space wasting).

If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

List of unpaired brackets remaining on the page:
  • grand jury is so named because traditionally it has a greater number of jurors than a trial jury (also known as a ''petit (French for small) jury'' or, in English usage the spelling can be ''petty
