Technical moves[edit]

I did these moves:

Am I correct that this amounts to a swap of the histories of the two articles? Can you look at the results and see if they are OK? My guess is that other articles that link to these two will be in a puzzling state for a while. Thanks, EdJohnston (talk) 05:52, 8 January 2014 (UTC)

New article: Waiting for your validation[edit]

Hi, Vchimpanzee

On 16:55, 28 December 2013‎, we'll do some changes in a new article about the catalan writer Nuria Perpinyà. (The issues for submission have been solved. All notes are valid and reliable references of secondary sources. This article falls into category of catalan writers (literature).)

We're waiting for your answer. Do you think now the new article is ready to be published in Wikipedia?

Thank you very much

Apologies[edit]

Hi, I was looking at one of my email accounts today for unrelated reasons, and found two emails with the Bennett College screenshot from you. As this isn't an email address I use very often and it's not the one I receive my wikipedia emails from, I neglected to check it when you said you had emailed me. Checking my email history I see you had used that email address before (although your most recent direct email besides the Bennett College one was to the one I used for most wikipedia emails). And I had suggested you could email me there when we first communicated. So I wholeheartedly apologise for the confusion and problems I caused when I said I did not receive your emails when they were received and I was just checking the wrong account.

Nuria Perpinya/new article[edit]

I attempted a response to your question.— Vchimpanzee · talk · contributions · 22:52, 8 November 2013 (UTC) You asked for help on my talk page. There are numerous problems with this article that have to be solved before it can be considered. The present tense is used where it should be past tense. The references are not properly formatted. You need to use <ref>Citation</ref> rather than footnote numbers. Each citation should appear after the information it verifies. There are no links to other Wikipedia articles, and section headings should be in the format ==Section heading== which automatically generates a table of contents.— Vchimpanzee · talk · contributions · 18:25, 20 February 2014 (UTC)

Problem about photo's name[edit]

Just one trouble we can't solved in the editing. The name of the photo appears as "Copia certicada" instead of "Nuria Perpinya". Could you please tell us how to change it?

Many thanks, Vchimpanzee: I've read your talk about diacritics. We can erase the accents in english. It would be easier for the people. I'm confused if I have to open a new user and repite again the article about the writer. I fear the information about NP is already done and there and could be duplicated as the talk response of Anon 126 suggests. It seems I've to leave the article where it is; and at the moment do nothing more, and wait for you and other reviewers if you think the article is suitable to be published in Wikipedia.

Meanwhile, I've reply to another reviewer who thinks that the sources are not reliable or independent, and I tell him that they are secondary source very objetive and neutral. (No extensive coverage in independent nor reliable sources, therefore non-notable. See WP:AUTHOR. References to her own published work are primary sources and they do not establish notability.

Re:Multichannel video programming distributor[edit]

It was really more an re-edit in regards to the awkwardness of the grammar. I just performed a copy/paste of the article to WordPad and rephrased the sentences to make it more presentable.

Is my subject notable enoughto be included[edit]

Dear Vchimpanzee,

Thank you for your reply. It is encouraging but I saw on other replies by Cullen that he emphasised that independent articles should discuss the subject at length. I would be relieved to get Cullen's approval as well as your own. Thank you very much.

Liberal Christianity[edit]

I saw your recent edit to Liberal Christianity in which you changed "catholic" to "Catholic", and read your edit summary. I agree that it should be capitalized, but then don't you think "orthodox" in the next phrase also ought to be capitalized? I believe it refers to the Eastern/Russian Orthodox branch of Christianity.

Saint Thomas Christians[edit]

Since you were reading the article on "Liberal Christianity" but do not seem to have an agenda for one viewpoint over another, you might be interested in the discussion (or discussions) on the Talk page of the article Saint Thomas Christians. The latest discussion (as on so many Talk pages) has apparently provoked some emotions. If you want to add your opinion, I guess you'd have to start by reading the article, but after you do that, and read the discussion up to this point, perhaps you can help calm things down.

Hi, Vchimpanze: I think all the things are done and fixed, except the name of the article of wikipedia and the name of the photo of the writer. Instead of be: "user:copiacertificada/Nuria Perpinya" must to be in both just: "Nuria Perpinya". Do you how to erase the name of "copia certificada"?

I am working on the article - but I have articles for creation question[edit]

Hello Vchimpanzee

I am working on the article & will re-edit. I'm not sure how I did this, but it appears that my article Canadian Registered Safety Professional is not in the Articles for Creation but in the articles space. Should/could it be reverted to the Articles for Creation area? This might be better as I'm scrambling with the coding as fast as I can because I don't want the article to be removed. I will probably have more time and not panic if it is in the Articles for Creation area and then once everything is okay then moved to the article space? Is that how it should work?

Article to be reviewed - adjustments made please advise[edit]

Hello Vchimpanzee

the article is adjusted as per your suggestions. Can you please assist? If there is something completely wrong please let me know as I would like the tag removed. I am following the same guidelines as the other two associations referenced within the article and they do not have tags. More references were added (external) with evidence that the designation is legitimate and I've expanded on the requirements steps with more detail as you suggested. The tone is neutral unless you see something specifically wrong. I would like to move forward on this asap. Is there another alternative in Wiki to get editors to actually adjust and help with the article? I am looking at this route as it seems it is not right even though I see the other associations with basically the same type of information. In the Teahouse an editor stated that it is fine to leave the article in this space as opposed to the draft space. Is there one main editor to report to per article? I am confusedAdBCWi14 (talk) 12:45, 29 May 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for clarifying some items, bear with me I don't know how to use Wiki, hopefully I've put this in the right spot on the talk section, if not let me know, not sure how to respond from the thread in the teahouse talk section, but I've kept the title the same as you requested.

I've updated some links, they are more notable external links from a sourced location. The content is updated and I've removed the infobox as it was creating some confusion with the CRSP designation. Please review and advise. Thanks in advanceAdBCWi14 (talk) 14:58, 30 May 2014 (UTC)

Most of the article was deleted because there have been 2 editors who have been writing unsourced changes which, frankly, read like an advertisement for the station.

Journey Reunion[edit]

As long as we don't create a section with the word "rumor" in it," I think this source is as good as any. You could just add a brief paragraph to the history section, perhaps something like:

"As of 2014, Steve Perry and Neal Schon are in discussions for a second band reunion. According to Perry '[w]e’re trying. It’s tough. I’m doing my best in that area, and I can only do so much. The older I get, the more I do realize how important what we had all together and how it worked, [lifting] each other to this place that you can’t get to alone. I think that’s probably the biggest chemistry thing I recognize now.' As for Schon, he recently wrote on Facebook that 'I hope we can reach out to each other and connect once again. We had amazing chemistry together. I love him with all the love and admiration you could ever have.'"

This is a very interesting development. Arnel Pineda's contract should have expired by now (or will soon). If Perry got back into the mix, and especially if Steve Smith joins the reunion and displaces Deen Castronovo, I wonder if the dominant paradigm for the Journey history of the past eighteen years will become the story of breakups and reunions, rather than that of continuity, as it is now.

This is one of the reasons I love history so much! The "facts" don't change but the interpretations are constantly in flux.

Thanks for sharing this story with me.

Hey buddy...[edit]

Hey Vchimp, I don't suppose I could ask you to help improve the wiki, can I? I'm currently working on cleaning out all of the deprecated and obsolete HTML characters from system messages, help page, templates, modules, etc, and I'm noticing that you have one in your signature. So, what I'm wondering is if you are interested bringing your signature up to HTML5 standards, if so, I suggest replacing:

— [[User:Vchimpanzee|<font color="Green">Vchimpanzee</font>]]&nbsp;'''·''' [[User talk:Vchimpanzee|<span style="color: orange"> talk</span>]]&nbsp;'''·''' [[Special:Contributions/Vchimpanzee|<span style="color: maroon">contributions</span>]]&nbsp;'''·'''


with:

— [[User:Vchimpanzee|<span style="color:#070">Vchimpanzee</span>]]&nbsp;• [[User talk:Vchimpanzee|<span style="color:#FA0">talk</span>]]&nbsp;• [[Special:Contribs/Vchimpanzee|<span style="color:#700">contributions</span>]]&nbsp;


which will result in a 229 character long signature (25 characters shorter) with an appearance of: — Vchimpanzee • talk • contributions •
compared to your existing 254 character long signature of: — Vchimpanzee · talk · contributions ·
— Either way. Happy editing! — {{U|Technical 13}} (etc) 11:04, 17 June 2014 (UTC)

The Wikipedia Library: New Account Coordinators Needed[edit]

Hi Books & Bytes recipients: The Wikipedia Library has been expanding rapidly and we need some help! We currently have 10 signups for free account access open and several more in the works... In order to help with those signups, distribute access codes, and manage accounts we'll need 2-3 more Account Coordinators.

It takes about an hour to get up and running and then only takes a couple hours per week, flexible depending upon your schedule and routine. If you're interested in helping out, please drop a note in the next week at my talk page or shoot me an email at: jorlowitz@gmail.com. Thanks and cheers, Jake Ocaasi via MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 23:41, 20 June 2014 (UTC)

Hi Vchimpanzee, last year I wrote an article about Riccardo Silva, but it was mereged with another page. Now I've found many sources so that I would like to write the page again.

Dear
Vchimpanzee
Thanks for your help, actually I don't want to change my user name, I just want "SPACE"
between my user name as it "appears" on my talk page like this,
Aftabbanoori . instead Aftab Banoori.
I want to continue as a Aftabbanoori, only want change at the heading of "Talk Page"
I had tried my self to change, it look fine when I see edit preview, but when I save few black dots appear just above my name, I don't know how to remove these black dots. Best wishes
