PSU Template[edit]

I had just finished making one seconds after you did. At first I thought someone hadn't put it on the colleges, then I saw you just did one now. The box should be navy rather than blue though, for future reference. --Wizardman 03:07, 3 April 2006 (UTC)

Category:Penn State University alumni[edit]

Hi Xanderer. Good job creating the Penn State alumni category. Instead of putting all of the individual football players into the cat, though, you should simply add Category:Penn State Nittany Lions football players to the category. Take a look at Category:Harvard alumni, for an example. ×Meegs 16:19, 14 April 2006 (UTC)

Meegs: Thanks for your help. (I knew there was a better way.) I was unable to post to your talk page due to some spam filter issue. I'll try to figure it out. —Xanderer 18:35, 14 April 2006 (UTC)

Slurpee category and image[edit]

Hi, I've just removed Image:Lil-Slurpee.gif from {{User slurpee}}, because we arn't allowed to put images with a fair-use rationale (such as logos) onto user pages. Sorry about that! SeventyThree(Talk) 05:58, 17 April 2006 (UTC)

HFStival List[edit]

Thank you for working on this contributing page for HFStival. I did an immediate edit, moving Margret Heater to the M's, not H. Because its a band, not a person. If the chart on the HFStival page does not help with your dates, I am sure I can help you out additionally. Talk to me | vi 01:12, 16 May 2006 (UTC)

I also noticed just now your link to Fidel was incorrect. I corrected that as well, as I just started an article on them last night. --vi 06:06, 23 May 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for updating the HFStival page this morning. In keeping the page theme, once a band has performed, we are not linking them again. So that's an FYI. I also reformatted your citation, so as to be able to quickly go back and write out the full citation so it can show at the bottom of the page, as this article becomes fully flushed out to wikipedia expectations.--vi 18:21, 29 May 2006 (UTC)

Gotcha. Thanks for the tip-in. Incidentally, do you know how to make the columns span the whole with of the table? (After a lot of frustration, I decided to go ahead and post the information first and experiment with the table later.) —Xanderer 18:41, 29 May 2006 (UTC)
Looks like you figured it out with the colspan, as I was going to suggest. I didn't go to the festival this year. I am currently weeding through pictures taken yesterday for some to upload to wikimedia commons for usage. I think the article would read better with images peppered throughout. Also, while you're add it, could you reorder the side stage and local stage for 2006? I believe that's the flow. I also added a quick statement about the buzz tent being cancelled for this year. I don't like my wording, so feel free to change that. --vi 21:42, 29 May 2006 (UTC)

Yellowcard[edit]

Hi, there! I saw that you've contributed to the Yellowcard page. I've been working hard all weekend to get it into an encyclopedia-worthy article, and I think we're almost there!

There's a short list of things that still need some work at the bottom of the talk page. If you could take a look at it, maybe add more things to do, or clean up whatever you see needs work, I would sure appreciate it.

Thanks for your help. Have an awesome day! Cathryn 10:10, 28 May 2006 (UTC)

Greg Buttle[edit]

Hi Xanderer,

I was a bit surprised by your edit summary for Greg Buttle. Was this a typo? Thanks, GChriss 00:06, 18 June 2006 (UTC)

Just being silly. I worship Greg Buttle—I think he's an oft-overlooked star. Someone once misunderstood me when I was saying his name and it has made me chuckle ever since. Sorry if I offended. I meant no harm. —Xanderer 02:30, 18 June 2006 (UTC)
No offense taken -- I was curious more than anything else. It is an interesting name. Take care, GChriss 05:16, 19 June 2006 (UTC)

Snallygaster[edit]

This page may help you expand the Snallygaster article. Also, it seems the Snallygaster should be in the Legendary creatures category and not the Cryptids category. Also, the Encyclopedia Mythica page the first link mentions is here. -- J. [ tlk | con | #'s ] @ 07:00, 19 June 2006 (UTC)

Art Houston[edit]

A question out of nothing but curiosity: What was the deal with Art Houston? I became curious when you deleleted the reference from Pottstown, Pennsylvania and noticed his article had been deleted and protected. Just curious—I've never heard of him. —Xanderer 01:04, 25 July 2006 (UTC)

I found it under "recent changes" one day, and someone had just prodded it and then User:Timebuilder deleted the 'prod' notice, so I submitted it to AFD (see Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Art Houston. After review, it was deleted, and then today, it was recreated, so I tagged it for speedy, and an admin deleted it, and then it was recreated, and then I retagged it for speedy again, and that admin protected it. I figured since now it was really dead, I went and checked the "What links here" and then did a bit of link cleanup. Sertrel 01:27, 25 July 2006 (UTC)
Was it poorly written, or bogus, or what? (And why do I care?) —Xanderer 23:53, 25 July 2006 (UTC)
Just... completely non-notable, just a guy. And what bugged me was how when people said he was non-notable, he claimed that he really was 'somebody' and then started injecting himself into other articles, or writing up his better-known friends to try and have some of their legitimacy rub off on him. So I did some AfD's. As for 'why' you care, I don't know, curiosity? Sertrel 00:18, 26 July 2006 (UTC)

Mike Reid[edit]

I noticed on the Mike Reid disambigution talk page, that you didn't known where Mike Reid, the football player and songwriter, should have an article. I decided on the football portion because I have a feeling people will know him more as a football player than a songwriter. My opinion is biased because I follow football much more than country music. If you, or others, feel the opposite is true, then I have no qualms about it being moved to the appropriate place. Patken4 01:19, 27 July 2006 (UTC)

I agree. Hardly a consensus[edit]

Three cheers for your comments concerning the lack of a consensus on several deletions today. (Wikipedia:Categories for deletion/Log/2006 October 1) I don't know how strongly you feel about this issue, but I appreciate you weighing in. I am very concerned about this trend toward Over-Deletionism and plan to stay on it. Any input is greatly appreciated. -Xanderer 17:56, 9 October 2006 (UTC)

Just an FYI, though, in my opinion, Kbdank71 typically does an awesome job of discernment. (Look further up his talk page for some other comments of mine.) Sometimes a CfD can be confusing, though, and as far as I can tell, he welcomes the comments. - jc37 18:02, 9 October 2006 (UTC)

Did you know?[edit]

Updated DYK query On 16 October, 2006, Did you know? was updated with a fact from the article Nancy Dickerson, which you created. If you know of another interesting fact from a recently created article, then please suggest it on the "Did you know?" talk page.

The Miracle at the Meadowlands[edit]

Thanks for asking for that cite ... not only did I put it in, I decided to start the long-overdue task of making all the references into specific footnotes. Daniel Case 04:32, 12 December 2006 (UTC)

Don't mention it—you never know how people will react to citation requests. I feel they help make this fascinating article even better. Keep up the good work. —xanderer 18:52, 12 December 2006 (UTC)

Your signature[edit]

Please change your signature as it is violating WP:Fair use, the Penn State logo should only be used "to illustrate the organization, item, or event in question" and it shouldn't be used on talk pages, etc. It's also against WP:SIG because it's an image in a sig. Please also see WP:FUIR. Thank you.++aviper2k7++ 00:39, 27 December 2006 (UTC)

Unspecified source for Image:Racquel-uso.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Racquel-uso.jpg. I notice the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you have not created this file yourself, then there needs to be a justification explaining why we have the right to use it on Wikipedia (see copyright tagging below). If you did not create the file yourself, then you need to specify where it was found, i.e., in most cases link to the website where it was taken from, and the terms of use for content from that page.

If the file also doesn't have a copyright tag, then one should be added. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Fair use, use a tag such as {{Non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 19:53, 6 January 2007 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. MECUtalk 19:53, 6 January 2007 (UTC)

What a cool trick![edit]

I just saw the change you made to the birthday field on John Gilmore. Very cool trick. Did you create this function yourself or did you see it used somewhere else? –xanderer 21:06, 15 January 2007 (UTC)

Thanks, but I didn't create it, I saw it somewhere else. --Phbasketball6 20:46, 16 January 2007 (UTC)

Thank You[edit]

Thanks for the heads-up about the Presidents of Penn State article. 須藤

Pat Tillman infobox colors[edit]

Thanks for making the color for the Arizona Cardinals players infobox but in my opinion the color should be used for only present players, (It could get out of hand, like for Reggie White is it the Eagles or Packers color.) People will see if Tillman has the colors and will think to use it for other former players. With thanks --Phbasketball6 03:43, 27 January 2007 (UTC)

I also made the colors for other teams, most of them are only on the head coach of the team for right now, and some of the colors are not really good, please feel free to change them if you think that they are bad. --Phbasketball6 03:55, 27 January 2007 (UTC)

You're right. I've been operating under those same parameters. I guess I was on a roll and just blanked on Tillman. Good catch. —xanderer 13:43, 27 January 2007 (UTC)

Your signature[edit]

You may want to remove Image:PennState-logo.png from your signature because it is licensed as fair use. Wikipedia's fair use policy states that fair use images should only be used in the article namespace. Because you have also signed your name on talk pages, Wikipedia project pages, and so forth, you have repeatedly broken this policy. Feel free, however, to add images and media files licensed under other terms. For more information, see Wikipedia's fair use policy and an accompanying essay on the removal of fair use images. Thank you for your cooperation. Zzyzx11 (Talk) 15:17, 28 January 2007 (UTC)

Looking at this edit, it seems that you have been warned about your signature before. Therefore, if you continue to break Wikipedia's fair use policy, your account may be blocked from editing. Thanks. Zzyzx11 (Talk) 15:19, 28 January 2007 (UTC)

Hey Xanderer[edit]

The color that your using for the Kansas City Chiefs players is the ones for the Washington Redskins. Thanks--Phbasketball6 18:33, 30 January 2007 (UTC)

In my opionon the red should be a little brighter, but not as bright as I had it. --Phbasketball6 18:36, 30 January 2007 (UTC)

I'm going to change the Chiefs color for all of the current Chiefs players, the reason for this is that the Chiefs color that you put for the players is the same as the Redskins. Sorry--Phbasketball6 00:03, 8 February 2007 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with Image:Sam-huff-football.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Sam-huff-football.jpg. The image has been identified as not specifying the copyright status of the image, which is required by Wikipedia's policy on images.

Thanks for agreeing with me in that AfD discussion, Harry. ;) That totally cracked me up. Pinball22 01:03, 23 February 2007 (UTC)

sig[edit]

The flag you are using takes up 7 lines in the edit box. It should also work if the lines are run together. Friendly comment, not complaint.DGG 01:06, 23 February 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for pointing that I out. I had no idea that was happening—those 7 lines of code don't appear when you use the {flagicon} script within an infobox. (example) I thought it was a cute trick, but I guess I'll stop using it. —xanderer 01:54, 23 February 2007 (UTC)

Please vote[edit]

RE: Anthony Adams[edit]

Anthony Adams a fullback? That's news to me. Have you read something indicating the Bears may use him as such? ►xanderer  21:50, 6 April 2007 (UTC)

Yeah, it was a shocker to me too. Apparently SF used to use him as a FB in short yardage situations. Please See Adams prepared to tackle new challenge with Bears --  ShadowJester07  ►Talk  22:32, 6 April 2007 (UTC)

Wow, I had no idea! I hope they do line him up. He's spent far too much of his career on the bench. —Xanderer 23:23, 6 April 2007 (UTC)

Flagicons[edit]

Xanderer, I don't think there is community consensus on the use of flagicons; you'll probably find that many of the articles you just added them to have had them removed previously. See also Wikipedia:Don't overuse flags, an essay which a lot of people subscribe to. Picaroon 01:04, 9 April 2007 (UTC)

Image:Jack-ham-poster.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Jack-ham-poster.jpg. I notice the 'image' page specifies that the image is being used under fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first fair use criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed image could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this image is not replaceable, please:

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

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace the fair use image by finding a freely licensed image of its subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or a similar) image under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our fair use criteria. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that any fair use images which are replaceable by free-licensed alternatives will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Rettetast 10:31, 30 June 2007 (UTC)


Non-free use disputed for Image:01227-3278mcnally.jpg[edit]

Warning sign This file may be deleted.

Thanks for uploading Image:01227-3278mcnally.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale you have provided for using this image under "fair use" may be invalid. Please read the instructions at Wikipedia:Non-free content carefully, then go to the image description page and clarify why you think the image qualifies for fair use. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If it is determined that the image does not qualify under fair use, it will be deleted within a couple of days according to our Criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. MER-C 09:05, 1 July 2007 (UTC)

Please clarify your fair use rationale on the image description page. Thank you. MER-C 09:06, 1 July 2007 (UTC)

Connor and Lee[edit]

I started pages on Dan Connor and Sean Lee today. What other current Nittany Lions should have an article? Thanks for the work on Coach Bradley. Dincher 23:16, 10 July 2007 (UTC)

No. Thanks to you! He's been on my "to do" list, but I've been unable to find his birthdate and lost any momentum I had. Excited to see your work on Connor and Lee too. I have lots of former players on my list but Deon Butler is the only current player I can think of. Keep up the good work. —x a n d e r e r 23:27, 10 July 2007 (UTC)
Okay. Butler is next! I am getting excited about the up coming season! Dincher 23:35, 10 July 2007 (UTC)
Deon Butler is up and running.Dincher 00:20, 11 July 2007 (UTC)
How about AQ Shipley? He's up for the Center award, and probably will be on All-Big Ten teams. AJ Wallace or Andrew Quarless might be interesting, depending on the seasons they have.Pepperjack 18:49, 11 July 2007 (UTC)
A.Q. Shipley is up and running too. I think I'll wait on Wallace and Quarless. I don't think that the GoPSU site has been updated yet. Dincher 00:17, 12 July 2007 (UTC)
Since Andrew Quarless has been named to the Mackey Award watchlist I went ahead and started his page. Do you have more biographical info, for example, when and where he was born. Perhaps this is in a program from last season. I haven't found it online. Dincher 22:36, 24 July 2007 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image Image:(Brubeck-on-time.jpg)[edit]

Orphaned Fair use

Thanks for uploading Image:Brubeck-on-time.jpg. 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 'image' 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 "Image" from the dropdown box.

My "trail of destruction"[edit]

What exactly are you referring to? Also, whether I've done wrong things or not (though I am anxious to hear your answer) I see no reason to talk to Jmfangio about it, considering my interactions with him have been due to his ignorance and what I would consider mental instability.►Chris Nelson 01:00, 29 July 2007 (UTC)

It's no secret. I've given you my opinion in previous discussions: I agree with you just as often as I disagree with you, but I find your inability to accept the opinions of others and your belligerence toward the process of consensus-building frustrating. It's not constructive and I thought Jmfangio (talk · contribs) would be well served in his dispute with you over the the new template to see your activities at the old one. It's nothing personal—I just want to see it worked out so I can use it. —x a n d e r e r 01:25, 29 July 2007 (UTC)
Well I mainly asked because I couldn't recall my specific interactions with you. Perhaps I am sometimes intolerant of the opinions of others', but in the case of Jmfangio and the new template, it's not about opinions because he has none. He has what he thinks are opinions, but in reality he's just totally wrong and unable to comprehend reality. I also don't think you should treat him like the victim, because I think he's more deceitful and manipulative than you know. All he's done is make unnecessary and incorrect changes, patronize, attempt to tell others about Wikipedia policy he clearly lacks understanding on, then pretends to offer compromises so he looks like the bigger person to passersby. I really think the dude might be insane.►Chris Nelson 01:48, 29 July 2007 (UTC)
Why is my text blue? Haha.►Chris Nelson 01:48, 29 July 2007 (UTC)
But see down below? Totally over-the-top trying to be all friendly so he can get your support. Awesome. Just remember there are no "resolutions" needs as he speaks of. There's Jmfangio's ideas, then there are the correct ways. My resolution is to just ignore him forever and keep everything correct.►Chris Nelson 01:52, 29 July 2007 (UTC)

  • FYI, I had intended to start a new infobox before it was suggested to me. It's unfortunate that I was not aware of all that went on before. I'm hoping that a quick resolution is in place. Then maybe we can have a discussion about how to get these infobox situations resolved. If you want to refractor this to my talk page for consistency, please do so. If not, I'm happy to have the conversation here if that's easier on you. Juan Miguel Fangio| ►Chat  01:45, 29 July 2007 (UTC)

Undrafted free agents in NFL infobox[edit]

Hi, I'm writing you because you have previously posted on Template talk:Infobox NFLactive and I would like your opinion on an addition I made that is being contested. I have added a field to the infobox called "undraftyear", and when a year is entered it adds a line under a guy's college that says "Undrafted in 1997" or whatever year is appropriate. I did this because I felt there should be something noting a guy went undrafted, similar to the info for drafted players that was already in place. To see how this would look in an article, see here or here. If you would be in favor of this edit, I'd ask you to kindly voice this at Template talk:Infobox NFLactive#Undrafted free agents. It is being contested by one person because they feel the year should not be there. I feel the year is important, just as the year of drafting is important. I also feel that since we have an NFL debut section in the infobox as well as a listed of teams and years played for each, it wouldn't cause any confusion. So if you're okay with this edit or you'd like to get in the discussion, I'd encourage you to do so. Thanks!►Chris Nelson 22:24, 21 August 2007 (UTC)

No highlights[edit]

I wanted to have an opportunity to get a clarification on your thoughts. The highlights section is hotly debated and long ago i was hoping that a focus on the section of a whole would take place, as there are some really important things that need to be addressed; criteria for inclusion in the section is something worth talking about

I just double checked and you inserted the box on the Jurevicius article and i removed the highlights field. I saw in your recent post that you had a "highlight" that you felt was worthy of inclussion - why didn't you include it? I'm not saying it is or is not something that should be included, I'm just curious why you didn't put it in.

I'm still hesitant to move forward on to many open discussions there because of the outstanding RFC that is going on. Juan Miguel Fangio| ►Chat  08:33, 22 August 2007 (UTC)

Misery[edit]

Yes, I had my thoughts about Morelli's page. But this is wikipedia, not pennlive.com. I am very glad to say that I had to work on Saturday and did not have to watch that game. I fear for the rest of the season. Dincher 00:43, 26 September 2007 (UTC)

No vandals on Morelli, yet. I am glad that I didn't get to see the game. Dincher 20:51, 29 September 2007 (UTC)
I saw some highlights and I can't blame Morelli for the fumble. The Larry Johnson article looks great! Never heard of this Larry Johnson. =) Dincher 04:08, 30 September 2007 (UTC)

I just knew we had talked about Morelli in the past and not to my surprise it was under the section "Misery". Anyway I just looked on the Cardinals website and Anthony isn't on the roster. Cardinals. I am planning on going to the Iowa game this year, it should be a blast! Dincher (talk) 21:26, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

Iowa will be a guaranteed blast—it’s looking like I’ll be there too. Don't forget to wear your white. I think Morelli’s situation was sort of unorthodox. I am fairly certain he was with the Cardinals in some capacity this past spring. (A release came across the wire back in April.) This is just a guess, but I'd imagine he was just a “hired arm” to chuck balls at mini-camp. Regardless, it must be over because I read here that he will be coaching quarterbacks at Plum High School. Ahem, good luck to them with that.—xanderer (talk) 20:37, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
Intersting bit of news out of Plum. I keep checking GoPSU sports for updated player bios. I want to do an article on Jared Odrick, possibly Jack Crawford, there was a very good article about him in the Altoona Mirror. Probably some others as well. Dincher (talk) 21:42, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
Good choices. Crawford is gonna be a star, so I've been stockpiling articles about him on my user page. Feel free to mine them for info. I just got my 2009 Media Guide in the mail. I just flipped through it quickly, but it’s gonna be a goldmine of information. Do you want me to scan Crawford and Odrick's bios? —xanderer (talk) 22:07, 5 August 2009 (UTC)

Dick Anderson[edit]

I created Dick Anderson tonight. Please take a look and fix what you think needs to be fixed. Thanks. Dincher 00:34, 18 October 2007 (UTC)

Bravo Dincher! I'm going to dig out my PSU Football Media Guide and see if there's anything significant I can add. BTW: I was at that woeful game in 1988 when Rutgers beat us…and when Syracuse did…and Pitt. Oh, the pain! —xanderer 02:25, 18 October 2007 (UTC)

Anderson has been nominated for DYK [[1]].I was a really little kid when I saw Penn State lose to Cincinnati 3-14 the year after the Sugar Bowl victory over Georgia. Dad says that I cried. Dincher 21:12, 19 October 2007 (UTC)

An article which you started, or significantly expanded, Dick Anderson (American football coach), was selected for DYK![edit]

Updated DYK query On October 22, 2007, Did you know? was updated with a fact from the article Dick Anderson (American football coach), which you created or substantially expanded. If you know of another interesting fact from a recently created article, then please suggest it on the Did you know? talk page.


Thanks for your contributions! Nishkid64 (talk) 21:11, 22 October 2007 (UTC)

Great work to you too! Go State! Beat the Buckeyes! Dincher 00:25, 23 October 2007 (UTC)

Mike McQueary[edit]

I started Mike McQueary tonight. I can still hear my Dad shouting, Put McQueary In!!!!! as Wally was being Wally. Have at it if you wish, if not I'll work more on it in several days. Dincher 01:35, 27 October 2007 (UTC)

I was going to tell you I started Chafie Fields today, after I discovered he is now a sports agent and represented Levi Brown. But, alas, I see you have already noticed. Nice work, as always, on McQ. —xanderer 04:31, 27 October 2007 (UTC)!
Yeah, old Chafie sure had a memorable catch against Miami a few years back. I almost jumped through the floor of my third floor apt. in fabulous Lawrenceville, Pennsylvania. My feelings about updating McQ will be greatly affected by tomorrow's game. Wish I was there. Dincher 04:36, 27 October 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Jim_ricca.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Jim_ricca.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use. Suggestions on how to do so can be found here.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

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 'image' 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 "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Rettetast (talk) 20:05, 1 February 2008 (UTC)

Butler[edit]

Nice pic of Deon Butler. Did you get anymore pics of the other players? Dincher (talk) 02:39, 21 April 2008 (UTC)

Thanks! Did you make it to the game? They offered unprecedented access to the players this year. I've also posted my photo of Jay Alford this afternoon. I have photos of quite a few others who don't have articles yet, but will no doubt will once the season starts: Stephfon Green, Andrew Szczerba, Dan Lawlor, Chima Okoli, Tyrell Sales, Cedric Jeffries, Bani Gbadyu, Rich Ohrnberger, Dennis Landolt and a couple others. —xanderer (talk) 05:45, 21 April 2008 (UTC)
Sounds good! Now we have a list to work from to make articles. I didn't make it to the game. Gas is way to expensive to be driving from NC. Sometimes I think I might never make it to PA again! Dincher (talk) 19:32, 21 April 2008 (UTC)

Butler in the Skull and Bones? The article says that it's only at Yale. Is this a different skull and bones for Butler? Dincher (talk) 02:35, 6 May 2009 (UTC)

Hmmmm. I was checking the PSU alumni database to see if he had earned the second degree he was working on when I noticed "Skull & Bones Alumni Interest Group" listed in his profile. It's perhaps too dubious for inclusion—plus I can't link a citation to it anyway, since it is password protected. —xanderer (talk) 02:48, 6 May 2009 (UTC)

Clark[edit]

I started Daryll Clark today. Any help or input will be greatly appreciated. Do you have a pic? If not I could look on flickr later. I am going to work on it some more and shoot for a DYK and get on the main page. He could be there, on DYK, Saturday for the first game. Dincher (talk) 21:43, 26 August 2008 (UTC)

Nice work! No pix of Clark....yet. But I've been reading some great newspaper articles on Wally Richardson and his brother William, who will start as Costal Carolina's QB on Saturday. I've bookmarked them and plan to plunder them for info shortly. —xanderer (talk) 02:20, 29 August 2008 (UTC)
Thanks. Looking forward to learing more about old Wally and this brother. Have a good weekend.Dincher (talk) 10:39, 29 August 2008 (UTC)

Started Evan Royster too. Dincher (talk) 16:19, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

I nominated Royster for DYK today. If you have more to add, go for it. I am sure it could use more information. Dincher (talk) 00:22, 3 September 2008 (UTC)

Kevin Kelly[edit]

Kevin Kelly is up an running. Got anything to add? Go for it. The Nittany Lions are looking pretty good so far aren't they? I wonder what the difference is? Could it be Clark instead of Morelli? I think so. --Dincher (talk) 00:04, 10 September 2008 (UTC)

Mark Rubin[edit]

You've got a good article going on Mark Rubin. Did you nominate it for a DYK? It's got a great hook. DYK that Mark Rubin a safety for the # 2 Penn State Nittany Lions beat Olympic super star Michael Phelps in swimming while in high school? Dincher (talk) 21:30, 2 November 2008 (UTC)

I went ahead and nominated it. Nice work. Dincher (talk) 21:44, 2 November 2008 (UTC)
Thanks! I really appreciate that! I've been chugging away on a slew of current Penn State players lately. I've been paying close attention to my Google Alerts, and there have been so many great storylines on this year's team: Rubin, Josh Gaines, Gerald Cadogan, Ollie Ogbu. I've been incorporating them into the existing articles whenever possible, and creating new articles for those who don't have them. I've also been keeping an eye out for info on former Nittany Lions Steve Smith and Tom Rafferty, both of whom are struggling with rare diseases. We Are! —xanderer (talk) 22:15, 2 November 2008 (UTC)

Good work. Dincher (talk) 20:50, 6 November 2008 (UTC)

Josh Hull[edit]

I started Josh Hull. If you have anymore info, please add it. We could get a tag team DYK. It was a pretty good season, wasn't it? Dincher (talk) 02:09, 23 November 2008 (UTC)

Nice work! I added a couple wikilinks, a category, and two hyphens. I hadn't seen Hull without his helmet before; Did you see that kid's melon? Yikes! —xanderer (talk) 01:53, 25 November 2008 (UTC)

Request to move article Junkyard Band incomplete[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg

You recently filed a request at Wikipedia:Requested moves to move the page Junkyard Band to a different title - however your proposal is either incomplete or has been contested as being controversial. As a result, it has been moved to the incomplete and contested proposals section. Requests that remain incomplete after five days will be removed.

Please make sure you have completed all three of the following:

  1. Added {{move|NewName}} at the top of the talk page of the page you want moved, replacing "NewName" with the new name for the article. This creates the required template for you there.
  2. Added a place for discussion at the bottom of the talk page of the page you want to be moved. This can easily be accomplished by adding {{subst:RMtalk|NewName|reason for move}} to the bottom of the page, which will automatically create a discussion section there.
  3. Added {{subst:RMlink|PageName|NewName|reason for move}} to the top of today's section here.

Oh I know. Boy do I know! I wrote the media guide off as "business expense" this year. (We'll see how the IRS feels about that in April.) I emailed you Jack Crawford's bio today. You probably don't need this now that the player bios are online at gopsusports, but I wanted to follow through anyway. Don't forget the references I've been collecting on my user page too. —xanderer (talk) 13:37, 11 September 2009 (UTC)
I got the email today. Thank you. I will hopefully get to print it off and use it. I haven't seen updated bios on GoPSU sports. Am I missing something? Got tickets for the Iowa game Section EJ Row 14 seat 20something. Dincher (talk) 22:44, 11 September 2009 (UTC)

An exciting month of wiki events![edit]

Hello there,

I am pleased to say that April will be a very exciting month for Wikipedia in Washington, DC. We have a lot of different events coming up, so you will have a lot to choose from.

First, a reminder that our second annual Women in the Arts Edit-a-Thon will take place on Sunday, March 30 at the National Museum of Women in the Arts.

Coming up in April, we have our first-ever Open Government WikiHack with the Sunlight Foundation on April 5–6! We are working together to use open government data to improve the Wikimedia projects, and we would love your help. All are welcome, regardless of coding or editing experience. We will also be having a happy hour the day before, with refreshments courtesy of the Sunlight Foundation.

On Friday, April 11 we are having our first edit-a-thon ever with the Library of Congress. The Africa Collection Edit-a-Thon will focus on the Library's African and Middle East Reading Room. It'll be early in the morning, but it's especially worth it if you're interested in improving Wikipedia's coverage of African topics.

The following day, we are having our second annual Wiki Loves Capitol Hill training. We will discuss policy issues relevant to Wikimedia and plan for our day of outreach to Congressional staffers that will take place during the following week.

There are other meetups in the works, so be sure to check our meetup page with the latest. I hope to see you at some of these events!

All the best,
James Hare
