Welcome to Wikipedia![edit]

Hello Dweinberger, welcome to Wikipedia!

I noticed nobody had said hi yet... Hi!

If you feel a change is needed, feel free to make it yourself! Wikipedia is a wiki, so anyone (yourself included) can edit any article by following the Edit this page link. Wikipedia convention is to be bold and not be afraid of making mistakes. If you're not sure how editing works, have a look at How to edit a page, or try out the Sandbox to test your editing skills.

You might like some of these links and tips:

If, for some reason, you are unable to fix a problem yourself, feel free to ask someone else to do it. Wikipedia has a vibrant community of contributors who have a wide range of skills and specialties, and many of them would be glad to help. As well as the wiki community pages there are IRC Channels, where you are more than welcome to ask for assistance.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask me on my talk page. Thanks and happy editing, -- Alf melmac 23:17, 22 December 2005 (UTC)

Vandalism[edit]

In response to your defence of your vandalism. Yes, your vandalism was a smart alec comment, not a hurtful slander. So is much of the vandalism by adolescents. It's still a damned pain for Wikipedia to have to deal with it, whether it comes from an adolescent boy or a middle-aged Harvard academic behaving like an adolescent boy. Wikipedia works because the level of vandalism is just about within the bounds that Wikipedians can cope with. If it was significantly higher it would drive people away and the project would start to fail (or would never have got far in the first place). Any action which tends to suggest that vandalising Wikipedia is no big deal threatens that fragile balance and is therefore irresponsible. Publicised vandalism by a Harvard academic (I found the Crimson article very easily on Google News) is highly likely to lead to copycat experiments by students or by teachers at less well known institutions, who may think that if it is a smart thing for you to do, it will be smart for them to do it too.Piccadilly 11:55, 17 March 2006 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Rick Levine[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Rick Levine requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article, which appears to be about a real person, organization (band, club, company, etc.), or web content, does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not indicate the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable. If this is the first page that you have created, then you should read the guide to writing your first article.

If you think that you can assert the notability of the subject, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the article (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the article's talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article 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 article that would confirm the subject's notability under Wikipedia guidelines.

For guidelines on specific types of articles, you may want to check out our criteria for biographies, for web sites, for bands, or for companies. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. Hell in a Bucket (talk) 14:13, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

CALDOL[edit]

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of CALDOL, and it appears to include material copied directly from http://www.caldol.net.

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. The article will be reviewed to determine if there are any copyright issues.

If substantial content is duplicated and it is not public domain or available under a compatible license, it will be deleted. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material. You may use such publications as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. See our copyright policy for further details. (If you own the copyright to the previously published content and wish to donate it, see Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials for the procedure.) CorenSearchBot (talk) 18:31, 8 March 2011 (UTC)

This was confirmed to be a false positive. The CSD request has been reversed.--SPhilbrickT 19:29, 9 March 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of CALDOL[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on CALDOL requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be a clear copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words.

If the external website belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. If you are not the owner of the external website but have permission from that owner, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission. You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hang on}} 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 hang-on 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.

Speedy deltion request reversed[edit]

The speedy deletion tag was an error, and has been removed.--SPhilbrickT 19:28, 9 March 2011 (UTC)

Double Bottom Line revert[edit]

Dweinberger,

This is to let you know that I consider your deletion and characterization of my hard-researched edits of the Double bottom line Wikipedia article as vandalism. The operational concepts expressed in the article are exercised by large non-profit organizations, through-out the western industrialized world. What makes you think you know better? You should think twice before you trash the work of others. HamiltonFromAbove (talk) 01:29, 8 June 2014 (UTC)

A few helpful tips and encouragement from an admirer of your work ...[edit]

I'm noticing you haven't edited much since the kerfluffle above, with an editor who isn't entirely clear yet on the difference between an encyclopedic tone and promotional materials, and I'd like to encourage you to try editing here again sometime.

Here's a bit of what I've picked up about interacting on this site.

Since most folks are amateurs and volunteers, the best policy is to take the attitude, "thanks for putting something up to get this topic going, let's see what we can do with it."

You want to propose major changes on the talk pages before carrying them out, and put any corrections regarding your own off-wiki work on the talk page. (If nobody fixes the article for you, ask for help at the appropriate WikiProject or the Teahouse.)

When cleaning up something messy, it can help to use rather brief edit summaries that link to the instructions for Wikipedia editorial style. This is often covered by "copyedit for WP:NPOV", "removing uncited material, as per WP:VERIFY", "copyediting and/or reorganizing as per WP:MOS", "trimming promotional material as per WP:SPAM."

And, nothing beats making connections in person, at a Wikipedia meetup! Djembayz (talk) 00:16, 20 June 2014 (UTC)
