HI! I am working with 2 other Wikipedians to improve the article "Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix". I wanted to get your input since you have already been somewhat involved in the article and seem to have a well-rounded insight into this realm. The other two have added some text which I plan to edit for quality. We have added a number of sources and some media as well. Let me know what you think!

Yes check.svg

Your request to be unblocked has been granted for the following reason(s):

Autoblock of 72.1.206.7 lifted or expired.

Request handled by: HighInBC (Need help? Ask me) 15:48, 18 December 2006 (UTC)

Specifically because I am at a school, and I personally would NEVER vandalise wikipedia, other idiots in this school have a good time doing it though. Is there any way that the block could be circumvented if I logged in as myself? This would ensure that others in this school would not vandalise. My friend and I sit here in class, and when there's nothing to do we either work on Wikipedia or just browse pages. It is quite disheartening when we want to correct something and we are unable to do so! Any help would be appreciated.


I am switching the block to a softblock, you should be able to log in. But still not edit anonymously. Let me know here if it does not work. HighInBC (Need help? Ask me) 15:48, 18 December 2006 (UTC)

Hello

Hello there. Sorry it's taken me a stupidly long time to reply to your message (here) but i've been away from the internet over christmas and new year. I'm glad to be of help with that deletion thing above. I'm afraid I don't know that much about bose-einstein condensates - I did a bit of that last year, but the lecturer was so boring I think I was asleep for most of the lectures. I'm sure it's an injustice to the subject, which looks pretty cool from the wikipedia article. As for me, I get excited about minkowski space and how everything reduces to four-vectors, like Maxwell's equations. It's all got a simplicity which borders on insanity. --h2g2bob 01:46, 6 January 2007 (UTC)


Help

{{helpme}} I want to start an article on Tim Horton's Roll Up The Rim contest, but I don't know whether to include it under Timmy's article or start a new one. When an organization has a contest, does it get it's own page?

As a Canadian who loves Timmy Ho's... I would say put it in the TimHo article for now. If enough material gets added over the next while, split it off into a separate article. But for now I think it's fine just as a section of the main. Also, pls bring me an XXL double-double and a sour cream glazed. Thanks. (and for future reference, new sections should go at the bottom of the talkpage). // roux   06:54, 29 November 2008 (UTC)

Help request

{{helpme}} Hey, I've been working on AirCombat/VANDU and I'm trying to find someone to look it over: is there a place on wiki where I can post it and have someone look it over for suggestions?

It sounds like you want to request a peer review. See that page for instructions etc. Good luck!  Chzz  ►  17:03, 2 April 2009 (UTC)

Welcome

Hi, AirCombat. Welcome to Wikipedia! I noticed you've just joined, and wanted to give you a few tips to get you started. If you have any questions, please talk to us. The tips below should help you to get started. Best of luck!  Chzz  ►  17:05, 2 April 2009 (UTC)

ようこそ
  • You don't need to read anything - anybody can edit; just go to an article and edit it. Be Bold, but please don't put silly stuff in - it will be removed very quickly, and will annoy people.
  • Ask for help. Talk to us live, or edit this page, put {{helpme}} and describe what help you need. Someone will reply very quickly - usually within a few minutes.
  • Edit existing articles, before you make your own. Look at some subjects that you know about, and see if you can make them a bit better. For example, Wikipedia:Cleanup#2009.
  • When you're ready, read about Your first article. It should be about something well-known, and it will need references.

Good luck with editing; please drop me a line some time on my own talk page.

There's lots of information below. Once again, welcome to the fantastic world of Wikipedia!

{{helpme}}

I've been working on User:AirCombat/VANDU and I scanned the pamphlet that they distribute -- if I upload it to wikipedia (they've released it into the public domain) can I use it as a source?

You don't have to upload it in order to cite it. I've referenced pamphlets before. You can use the {{cite book}} template for that. Just give as much info as possible. If you have any further questions, feel free to contact me. Killiondude (talk) 22:00, 6 April 2009 (UTC)

Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia. Everyone is welcome to contribute to the encyclopedia, but when you add content (particularly if you change facts and figures), as you have to the article Cannabis legalization in Canada, please cite a reliable source for the content you're adding or changing. This helps maintain our policy of verifiability. Take a look at Wikipedia:Citing sources for information about how to cite sources and the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Thank you. Ckatzchatspy 08:21, 11 December 2009 (UTC)

{{helpme}} Hey -- I was just entering feedback for the beta, and it asked if I had ever used the 'expandable toolbar' to make edits... what the heck are they talking about?

When editing a page in Beta, above the edit window is a toolbar with extra options to use. If you click on "Advanced", "Special characters", or "Help", it will expand and show more options and information. That is what the feedback question is asking about. Please let me know if there are any more questions. Thanks! --Mysdaao talk 15:41, 12 May 2010 (UTC)

Help re: Bias

{{helpme}} I want to work on the Canadian Students for Sensible Drug Policy's page -- but I am on their advisory board. Is there a way I can work on it without bias? I would just like to clean up the article and make sure it is factually correct. However I don't want it to be one-sided, because as with all lobby groups, especially in drug policy, there is always a lot of contention and it would be easy for someone to assume I am biased. AC (talk) 01:31, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

Well, it's in pretty bad shape now, so almost anything would be an improvement. Maybe read this page, for advice. Basically, be upfront in disclosing your COI, stay neutral and balanced as best you can, and feel free to ask for guidance when you're not sure. fetch·comms 01:39, 16 August 2010 (UTC)
Per the guidelines linked, it would be best if you suggest edits on the articles talk page, instead of actually making the edits yourself. If you add {{editrequest}} too, that will alert others to check over your suggestion.  Chzz  ►  01:44, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

Perfect, thanks a lot guys! AC (talk) 01:45, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:JetsOverhead Lean.jpg

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:JetsOverhead Lean.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 "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 Dude (talk 04:23, 27 August 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Super discount.png

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on File:Super discount.png requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F9 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the image appears to be a blatant copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted images or text borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag - if no such tag exists then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hangon tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Eeekster (talk) 02:00, 12 October 2010 (UTC)


Yeah, I wasn't sure. Should I just include a link to the Google Earth picture or something? AC (talk) 02:05, 12 October 2010 (UTC)
You could do that; better yet, put up a notice on Wikipedia:WikiProject California/San Francisco Bay Area task force asking for someone to snap a free photo at that location. Magog the Ogre (talk) 03:43, 12 October 2010 (UTC)

Did You Know Nomination

{{helpme}} Hey there, I nominated the article I created, Breeding Ground, but I only just added an image for the nomination... I'm just wondering how the process works. I nominated it once yesterday but nobody reviewed it, I think because there wasn't an image. And I tried to fix the rollover text on the image but I can't get it to work. Some help would be much appreciated!! AC (talk) 23:26, 24 January 2011 (UTC)

There's no problem. You just need to be patient. Lots of DYKs have no image and that has nothing to do with whether it is reviewed, which should happen over the next few days. You might notice that the nomination directly below yours (Renewable energy in Russia) happens also to have not been reviewed yet. However, I do think you should move your nomination to the correct place. You posted under "articles created or expanded on January 23, 2011", but Breeding Ground was created by you on January 24, 2011. All of our processes here are governed by Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) so you may have created the article by your calendar on January 23, but you would go by this instead. Cheers.--Fuhghettaboutit (talk) 23:45, 24 January 2011 (UTC)

Oh I guess you're right, it would have been the 24th in UTC... okay, so should I just copy and paste the whole section up?? AC (talk) 23:56, 24 January 2011 (UTC)

By the way, I came to the article via the Blue Peter article. There's some work still to do on this one, there's some conflicting statements, I posted a comment on the article's talk page. Some stronger references would be good, too, the Jam and CBC ones are the only decent ones, you tube citations tend to get shot down.Echoedmyron (talk) 00:12, 25 January 2011 (UTC)
I went ahead and moved it to Jan 24, and to the time slot you would have posted it.--Fuhghettaboutit (talk) 00:53, 25 January 2011 (UTC)
Cool, thank you so much! I got distracted and totally forgot about it. Will I get a notification if it's picked? AC (talk) 01:10, 25 January 2011 (UTC)
You're welcome. Nope, the only notification you will receive is after it appears on the front page you will get one of these, What I do is follow the nomination progress. You really should as it is not uncommon for someone to say on their review, "this would need X done before it can appear in DYK". If reviewed it will wend its way down the page and at some point someone will grab it and add it to one of the prep areas and queues, until it is in the last queue and then to the mainpage.--Fuhghettaboutit (talk) 04:46, 25 January 2011 (UTC)

Re: Breeding Ground

Hey, not a problem! I have heard of this band before and they rock!! No way, your dad is the guitarist? I wish my dad was in an 80s rock band. Anyway, I just seem to enjoy editing new pages that appear on here. Take care and god bless ! Tinton5 (talk) 01:31, 25 January 2011 (UTC)

DYK nomination of Breeding Ground

Symbol question.svg Hello! Your submission of Breeding Ground at the Did You Know nominations page has been reviewed, and there still are some issues that may need to be clarified. Please review the comment(s) underneath your nomination's entry and respond there as soon as possible. Thank you for contributing to Did You Know! Arctic Night 22:17, 25 January 2011 (UTC)

Your page notice

Hi, just an observation - your edit notice for this user talk page, User talk:AirCombat/Editnotice, reads "this is a userpage and is only supposed to be edited by the user!" I'm sure you can see the problem there! :) Arctic Night 22:19, 25 January 2011 (UTC)

Bloody sound player!

Hi there -- I've just uploaded my first sound clip for the article Breeding Ground but I can't get the sound player box where I want it. How can I get the text to wrap around the box? Is it possible to have it next to the infobox in the "Studio Albums" section? You'll notice I have the code for the sound clip right after the heading for that section, yet the box appears way down below the infobox, two or three paragraphs later. I've had trouble with this before, with images (for example, the file Image:Hugh_Gladish_of_Breeding_Ground.jpg which is also on that page is doing the same thing. But I guess it's okay where it is.) Thanks for any help you can give me! AC (talk) 03:48, 27 January 2011 (UTC)

DYK nomination of Breeding Ground (band)

Your page notice

Hello AirCombat - just a short note about your page notice again :) It reads:

Editing

Hello. You're editing the userpage of AirCombat. Please make your edits friendly as this is a userpage and is only supposed to be edited by the user! Arctic Night 10:06, 7 February 2011 (UTC)

Okay, I removed it, but honestly, I don't understand the point of those -- how on earth do you see it? There's no link ANYWHERE, it doesn't show up on the userpage itself, what's the point of an 'editnotice'. I put that same template directly on my Userpage, not talk page, and that seems to be the only sane place to put it, so other people actually see it. AC (talk) 21:42, 7 February 2011 (UTC)
Oh - you didn't realise? Anybody who edited (read: left a message!) on your user talk page while the edit notice was up was given the message that the page "is a userpage and is only supposed to be edited by the user". As this is a user talk page, and is meant to be edited by anybody, the edit notice was clearly incorrect! :) Arctic Night 22:38, 7 February 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Breeding Ground (album)

A tag has been placed on Breeding Ground (album), requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a redirect to an article talk page, file description page, file talk page, MediaWiki page, MediaWiki talk page, category talk page, portal talk page, template talk page, help talk, user page, user talk or special page from the main/article space.

If you can fix the redirect to point to a mainspace page, please do so and remove the speedy deletion tag. However, please do not remove the speedy deletion tag unless you are fixing the redirect. If you think the redirect should be retained as is for some reason, you can request that administrators wait a while before deleting it. To do this, affix the template {{hangon}} to the page and state your reasoning on the article's talk page. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this.
