An exciting opportunity to get involved![edit]

As a member of the Aviation WikiProject or one of its subprojects, you may be interested in testing your skills in the Aviation Contest! I created this contest, not to pit editor against editor, but to promote article improvement and project participation and camraderie. Hopefully you will agree with its usefulness. Sign up here, read up on the rules here, and discuss the contest here. The first round of the contest may not start until September 1st-unless a large number of editors signup and are ready to compete immediately! Since this contest is just beginning, please give feedback here, or let me know what you think on my talkpage. - Trevor MacInnis contribs 06:05, 23 August 2009 (UTC)

Topics of interest[edit]

US Morse code stations[edit]

US Flagged ocean liners[edit]

These are not military ships, they all served as Ocean Liners from the 1950s until they were no longer viable as cruise ships. Three of the ships were allowed to run aground or were otherwise sunk or scuttled, only the SS United States remains.

It's a shame to see our industrial base contract to the point where we aren't building big ships like this anymore, for civilian and merchant marine purposes. It would be useful to have boats that can carry cruise passengers or be used to respond to emergencies like the BP Oil Spill in the Gulf.

The fast five saga[edit]

Regarding "Fast Five"[edit]

There are certain times when it is not appropriate to have disambiguation pages, such as Fast Five, which should be the location of the new article. It is also not appropriate to have quotes in titles. ("Fast five (2010)"). If you have any questions, please ask. --Fiftytwo thirty (talk) 16:20, 19 July 2010 (UTC)

former deletion nomination of Fast Five (consulting)[edit]

(Nomination by talk) 19:24, 19 July 2010 (UTC))

Speedy deletion not appropriate for this article, as noted in the talk page.rhyre (talk) 18:48, 20 July 2010 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Fast Five (2011)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Fast Five (2011) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Per the notability guidelines in WP:MOVIE, this planned movie should not have its own article yet (the production is too recently started to be certain of a final product). If kept, article needs to be pared down only to those aspects notable to the movie itself.

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. Qwyrxian (talk) 05:31, 20 July 2010 (UTC)


Ok, do you want a disambiguation page at Fast Five, or do you want the page for the movie there and a hatnote at the top directing users to the Fast Five (disambiguation) page? There are currently three pages where there should be two. --Fiftytwo thirty (talk) 17:36, 20 July 2010 (UTC)

I don't want the movie content at Fast Five - it's inappropriate there. Since Fast Five may eventually not be about the movie (the title is currently "Fast and Furious 5"), I'd prefer Fast Five be a wayfinding page. The film name / whether it deserves a page issue is being currently debated on Fast Five (2011). I don't even care if that links to a section of the existing "Fast and Furious" page.

The Fast and the Furious 5 (2011) is what IMDB says it is, it seems appropriate to have Fast Five be the disamiguation page, with links to either:

My concept for all this is that a two-word phrase is too generic to be attached to a specific article, especially when there are multiple notable examples of the term being used in popular culture or business publications. In that formulation, "Fast Five" would never be an article about a 2011 Movie or a Music group. Even the "Fab Four" page doesn't jump you directly into the Beatles. If Fast Five becomes the central page, then Fast Five (disambiguation) could go away, except that as a practical matter, the movie's IP-anonymous fanboys will vandalize it again just to put their movie references in, as has happened before. That's why I chose the structure I did, with Fast Five being a Redirect to the Fast Five (disambiguation) page.

I hope this clarifies things. rhyre (talk) 18:43, 20 July 2010 (UTC)

Okay, I will take the steps to move the disambiguation page to the main title of Fast Five. I think that I may procedurally decline the PROD (for uncontroversial deletions which this is not; anyone including you can remove it) so that there can be a full community discussion at WP:AfD (which is the default deletion disussion where the article will be debated on its deletion for 7 days) unless you wish to put the info back at the series page. --Fiftytwo thirty (talk) 19:04, 20 July 2010 (UTC)

Thanks. If the resulting Fast Five page could be semi-protected (only editable by autoconfirmed users), that would help, too. This is a lot of work for a movie I doubt I will see. Thanks to User talk:Fiftytwo thirty for helping out. rhyre (talk) 19:13, 20 July 2010 (UTC)

Working pages[edit]

I have several pages being developed in userspace:

This page accidentally ended up in main space. I've moved it to User:Wikip rhyre/List of observatories with IAU codes when available, so it's in your user space now. -- Shadowlynk (Talk) 06:38, 21 July 2010 (UTC)

Articles for deletion nomination of Fast Five (film)[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

I have nominated Fast Five (film), an article that you created, for deletion. I do not think that this article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and have explained why at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Fast Five (film). Your opinions on the matter are welcome at that same discussion page; also, you are welcome to edit the article to address these concerns. Thank you for your time.
Please contact me if you're unsure why you received this message. Fiftytwo thirty (talk) 14:00, 21 July 2010 (UTC)

Again, no need to worry. I have just moved the deletion discussion to the final location; click on the link above to view and participate. --Fiftytwo thirty (talk) 14:03, 21 July 2010 (UTC)
Done. I'm not 100% sure on what "procedural deletion" is, but I responded to the note with comments in the AfD page. rhyre (talk) 15:22, 21 July 2010 (UTC)
"Procedual nomination" means that I am not "for" or "against" the deletion of the page; I am merely moving the discussion to a higher level of debate than a PROD. I made a minor formatting change to your comment. If you have any more questions, feel free to ask. --Fiftytwo thirty (talk) 15:28, 21 July 2010 (UTC)

July 2010[edit]

Information.svg Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. In your recent edit to This Is Not a Test (1962 film), you added links to an article which did not add content or meaning, or repeated the same link several times throughout the article. Please see Wikipedia's guideline on links to avoid overlinking. Thank you. serioushat 10:15, 23 July 2010 (UTC)

The link to actor/producer Mike Greene did not properly account for the spelling of his name at the time the movie was made. Are you asserting that completing the cast list did not add content? rhyre (talk) 21:36, 23 July 2010 (UTC)


People I've exchanged notes with[edit]


Notification: changes to "Mark my edits as minor by default" preference[edit]

Hello there. This is an automated message to tell you about the gradual phasing out of the preference entitled "Mark all edits minor by default", which you currently have (or very recently had) enabled.

On 13 March 2011, this preference was hidden from the user preferences screen as part of efforts to prevent its accidental misuse (consensus discussion). This had the effect of locking users in to their existing preference, which, in your case, was true. To complete the process, your preference will automatically be changed to false in the next few days. This does not require any intervention on your part and you will still be able to manually mark your edits as being 'minor'. The only thing that's changed is that you will no longer have them marked as minor by default.

For established users such as yourself there is a workaround available involving custom JavaScript. If you are familiar with the contents of WP:MINOR, and believe that it is still beneficial to the encyclopedia to have all your edits marked as such by default, then this discussion will give you the details you need to continue with this functionality indefinitely. If you have any problems, feel free to drop me a note.

Thank you for your understanding and happy editing :) Editing on behalf of User:Jarry1250, LivingBot (talk) 18:22, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

Christoper Dorner[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Toshio Yamaguchi. I noticed that you recently removed some content from Christoper Dorner without explaining why. In the future, it would be helpful to others if you described your changes to Wikipedia with an edit summary. If this was a mistake, don't worry: I restored the removed content. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks! -- Toshio Yamaguchi 07:50, 5 May 2013 (UTC)

Changed a bogus redirect that was pointing Dorner to the page for "LL Cool J" - I noted that the blanking of the redirect was because it was essentially vandalism - "(blank redirect - vandalism)" is in the edit history. Misspellings of words shouldn't be in an encyclopedia at all.

Disambiguation link notification for June 10[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Mt Healthy City Schools, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Mount Healthy (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.

Boston Community Information System[edit]

Dear Wikip rhyre,

Thank you for mentioning the Boston COMINS at talk: low-power broadcasting. I was surprised that Wikipedia didn't already have an article about it. So I posted a quick rough draft.

I suspect you know much more than I do about it. Perhaps you could add a few words -- and more importantly, a few more references -- to the Boston Community Information System article? Again, thank you for making Wikipedia better. --DavidCary (talk) 04:43, 10 January 2014 (UTC)
