high times/tom forcade affiliation[edit]

I believe something should be written about High Times founder Tom Forcade's affiliation with the yippies.


Yeah. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 142.161.30.72 (talkcontribs) 04:31, 4 June 2007

Question[edit]

My photo of the cover of "overthrow" (newspaper) was removed, and although I dutifully argued back where it told me to--I can't find the page now. My question: If *I* took the cover photo, why is the cover still not okay to use? Overthrow has been defunct for almost 4 decades and the only other copyright holder would be the photographer--right? Me. Nobody will answer me.

I think it belongs back in. Thank you for your consideration. PB57 (talk) 21:54, 7 October 2017 (UTC)

Generally newspaper covers are licensed to the people who produced them. Only in very limited circumstances can one be uploaded, and certainly not to Commons. You might be able to get away with a non-free content license to upload it, but given that this article is about a party and not a newspaper I find it unlikely that it would be kept. If you want more help, change the {{help me-helped}} back into a {{help me}}, stop by the Teahouse, Wikipedia's live help channel, or the help desk to ask someone for assistance. Primefac (talk) 23:03, 7 October 2017 (UTC)

Well, that's just it... I AM one of the collective that produced "Overthrow"--it was our own Yippie-produced newspaper and it seems like at least one photo of it should be included in any comprehensive history of the party? Most leftist parties had/have their own newspapers and many are included here on Wikipedia.

I hope you will reconsider but I will kindly accept your judgement. It has been very, very difficult to find verification for Rock Against Racism USA events--one reason I really wanted that particular "overthrow" cover is also because it says "rock against racism" PLAIN AS DAY on the cover and proves we were first, before any of the other groups that try to make that claim. Yes, its an ego thing. :) Thanks for listening. PB57 (talk) 02:06, 8 October 2017 (UTC)


{{{help me}}} Is it impossible to edit the references section? (Says "reflist" and it took me forever to find out what that was.) Because its somewhat of a mess and I'd like to clean it up. I know a lot about this subject, these were my peoples; still in touch with a good number of them. (I am listed on this page, which is initially what got my attention and got me interested in Wikipedia some years ago.)

If this is not possible, please see reference #12 -- link to New York Times article, which is what I wanted to fix. Not sure why the link is not working: http://www.nytimes.com/2014/01/17/nyregion/emptying-a-building-long-home-to-activists.html

If you read it, its about the emptying of the Yippie building, which means the last part of the article should be updated to say the last few Yippies who were living at 9 Bleecker Street have officially vacated the premises, and the Yippie Museum is now defunct-- "unclear about enterprise going forward" can stay in.

Sad but true. thanks PB57 (talk) 22:46, 15 September 2017 (UTC)

Hello PB57, and welcome to Wikipedia. The "References" section is a list of the article's footnotes, and by design, the footnotes are incorporated in the body of the text. To edit footnote #5, for example, click on the little caret between the "5." and "Gitlin, Todd (1993)." That will bring you to the place in the article's text where footnote #5 appears. If you wanted to correct, say, a misspelling in the name of Gitlin's book, you would edit the first section of the article, find the footnote (it's sandwiched between <ref> and </ref>) and edit it. When you click on "Preview" (below the edit box), you have the opportunity to see what the revised footnote will look like in the "References" section after you save your changes. If you have any further questions, please follow up on my talk page instead of this page, which is supposed to be specifically about improvements to this article.
It looks like the problem with footnote #12 was a misspelling in the URL -- it should have ended with html not html/. I just corrected it.
Please feel free to edit this article -- and any other Wikipedia article -- but if you can, try to cite reliable sources for the facts you add. Thank you. — Malik Shabazz Talk/Stalk 03:04, 16 September 2017 (UTC)
