Is there any way that you can delete Bradford N. Smith's page permanently. I am his father, and was unaware that he had done this until recently. None of his information is true, other than the Mad magazines and his birthdate and name, I would really appreciate it if you could delete it from here, or at least direct to somebody who can. Thank you. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:16, 4 April 2008 (UTC)

If you needed any more proof, I can sign in on Bradford's two wikipedia user names. This one, Rhssoccer. and.... —Preceding unsigned comment added by Rhssoccer (talkcontribs) 22:59, 4 April 2008 (UTC)

This one, ScoobyDooGuy1991, which he claimed initially was his nephew's, but was in fact his. I'm not sure why, but I assume he created two users in order to make his claim to famemore believable. —Preceding unsigned comment added by ScoobyDooGuy1991 (talkcontribs) 23:01, 4 April 2008 (UTC)

Re: Like A Maiden[edit]

Huh. I guess that might be notable? But it's current version looks like you could make a pretty good claim to A7 (notability) or G11 (advert). Or something. Haven't heard of that one, before, heh. – Luna Santin (talk) 22:12, 18 February 2007 (UTC)

Hm. That's frequently used when an author blanks a page they recently submitted. Which I guess is also true. *shrug* Funny thing, that. – Luna Santin (talk) 22:18, 18 February 2007 (UTC)

Straw poll on Srebrenica massacre[edit]

As a result of persistent edit warring on Srebrenica massacre, I have proposed that a straw poll be taken regarding one of the issues involved—namely, how to title the section currently named "Alternative views". This will help us to determine whether there is a consensus on what to title this section, or at least a consensus on what not to call it. The straw poll can be found at Talk:Srebrenica_massacre#Straw poll on "Alternative views" section. I have posted this announcement to each of the users who have made multiple edits to Srebrenica massacre this year. (I thought I had included you in my initial announcement a couple days ago, but apparently you were somehow overlooked. Sorry!) —Psychonaut 20:15, 20 February 2007 (UTC)

Jim, I agree that the whole discussion over on the Srebrenica massacre page is extremely frustrating. Believe me, I've experienced it. However, I don't see that leaving the article in the hands of the extremists and those that should loudest is a solution (in fact, that's howthe nationalist wars in the Balkans started). Given that the article seems doomed to get stuck on endless discussion on details I've proposed a 'Fresh Start', setting out some basic principles which should help us to make some real progress with the article. Unfortunately, so far no one seems willing to support such an initiative. I would much appreciate if you took a look at it and gave some comments. Regards Osli73 09:28, 21 February 2007 (UTC)

Muslims fear Backlash[edit]

Please don't be scared or offended by the creation of this article. I am extending you the chance to at least disscuss the merits of the article. Please don't offence or assume the use of the phrase is direct attack upon you or your sensitivities. All I wanted was a chance to discuss the merits of a term (that gets massive hit on all search engines) without it being swept under the rug. Are you saying that if I managed to complete the article with full references, (before being "speedy deleted") that you would support me in the project? Prester John 07:47, 25 February 2007 (UTC)

Hello! Please comment and weight in on the nomination for deletion of North America (Americas), a recent fork of North America. Thanks! Corticopia 11:18, 2 March 2007 (UTC)

Hi Jim Douglas[edit]

I notice you reverted recent 2000 victims edit, back to 8,000. Thank you. Bosniak 21:51, 4 March 2007 (UTC)

Do you have some prove that there were exactly or around 8000 victims?[edit]

Is genocide when there were killed mostly adult males which were capable to use rifle or gun?

  • When the victims are non-combatants, yes, yes it still counts as genocide. Djma12 02:09, 5 March 2007 (UTC)

Re. Talk:Srebrenica massacre#Requested move[edit]

Hello Jim. Yes, I had read the arguments of those opposing the move and I know that the genocide definition is not disputed, it's just a discussion about which is the most suitable title for this article according to most common usage. After the Srebrenica massacre was declared a genocide I started hearing references to it as "Srebrenica Genocide" more and more, so I guess that it's becoming a more usual and adequate form, thus justifying the article to be renamed in my opinion.

Rv and Rvv[edit]

Jim, I'm sorry if my edit summary text offended you. In all the time I've contributed here, the abbreviation "Rv" means only "revert" while "Rvv" means "Revert vandalism". I learnt that by seeing other using this terms. If I'm wrong, please accept my apologies. However, check my contribution log and you'll see that when I'm reverting vandalism I add "Rvv" [1].

North America[edit]

Hey Jim, the point is that the English-speaking nations of Central America, the Caribbean and South America (Guyana) members of CONCACAF uses the North America zone (not saying subcontinent), and such zone includes only Mexico, the United States and Canada. Thats why it is included as an occasionally usage CONCACAF Gold Cup (in English). JC 13:00, 16 March 2007 (PST)


Its fixed now and am began on my own machine. Thanks for your interest. Regards, SqueakBox 23:20, 19 March 2007 (UTC)

proposed edit to Section 2.4 of the Srebrenica Massacre article[edit]


Yesterday, I actually spent about 45 minutes reading the discussion page and seeing your experience at the Srebrenica Massacre article a couple of months ago. I can see why you decided to wash your hands of it. I can see we disagree on some fundamental issues but I also believe you are acting in good faith and simply giving your honest opinion. By the way, even though I do disagree with you on some issues, I share your opinion that the UN is not an oracle of absolute truth. The free exchange of ideas offered by people acting in good faith has its merits.

In any case, I am currently contacting frequent editors of the Srebrenica Massacre and, as a courtesy, posting on their talk pages this message which is now on the Srebrenica Massacre discussion page.

I understand you are probably rather inclined not to get involved but, in case you may be, wanted to give you the chance to see this latest proposed edit.

Best Regards, Fairview360 01:56, 23 March 2007 (UTC)

Dear editors,

Please visit this version of the Srebrenica Massacre article to see the proposed changes to section 2.4:

Please visit this site to see the proposed sub-article which the proposed section 2.4 text will be linked to:

If there is no major objection, we would like to introduce this major edit to the article this Sunday March 25. This ought to give each editor the time they need to review the proposed changes before they are fully introduced.

The objective here is to make the article more concise while continuing to clearly state what happened and in no way obscure actual events.

A full review of the proposed changes to section 2.4 and the sub-article will show that all information regarding the executions has been preserved and presented in a clear manner.

Thank you for your time and consideration. Fairview360 01:28, 23 March 2007 (UTC)

Is it OK if I nominate you to be an administrator? Amos Han Talk 23:43, 7 April 2007 (UTC)

It looks like some other people want you to run for adminship, besides me. I was User:Wikipedier, who nominated you a little while ago, but I changed my name recently. I will certainly, however, understand if you still decline, but if the supporters pile up some day, I hope that it won't be an absolute that you will never run. Keep up the great anti-vandal work.--U.S.A.U.S.A.U.S.A. (talk) 02:35, 12 April 2007 (UTC)

help me ban someone[edit]

Hi Jim,

I'm not too savvy at this so I need help. Check this out:

This IP needs to be banned. He just vandalized this page: - by typing in "suck it".

He's been warned several times which you can see from his talk page. I know you're not an admin, but hopefully you know how to report to an admin.

Thanks, conanchicken

North America addition[edit]

Hello Jim, would you please give your opinion in this [2]? I'm trying to include the notion that North America is also a subcontinent in the single American continent model. Thanks. AlexCovarrubias 11:39, 13 May 2007 (UTC)

and i have no idea what you are talking about, i don't think i have even read that article before, much less that i edited it. So a little bit more info would be nice, like what time/date and just what i supposedly deleted, it might jar my memory. Although personally, i put it down to a dynamic ip address.


Why remove JES from the Jes Brieden disambiguation page? She was nominated for a grammy and when I typed in JES I want to be able to find Jes Brieden.

Who is Kate McAuliffe?[edit]

I've found many inappropriate usernames in Misza13's block log containing the name above mentioned. Do you know who is that? There were so many names saying that "<name> is going out with Kate McAuliffe" and so on. I have no idea what was going on. --Edmundkh 16:27, 5 June 2007 (UTC)


Your talk page sig has a separate link for your own talk page, but your user page redirects here. Is that vandalism? Nice work on the Heinlein material. BTW; were you at the Centennial?

Image source problem with Image:BASISlogo.jpg[edit]

Image Copyright problem

This is an automated message from a robot. You have recently uploaded Image:BASISlogo.jpg. The file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, their copyright should also be acknowledged.

As well as adding the source, please add a proper copyright licensing tag if the file doesn't have one already. 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:Non-free content, 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.

Liquids on planes.[edit]

Hi jim, this is darthvader1. The guy who believed it was all over for liquids and gels on commercial planes. Well, this past december, I was on a trip to Florida to study the florida manatee and although I did not bring any liquids on the flight to Florida (having allready sprayed my packed laundry with cologne), my instructors told me that it was "okay" to bring liquids in small amounts on the plane. Just before the flight home, at the tampa airport, I asked my chief instructor to "show me his liquids", and he did. And I saw them, small amounts all enclosed in a zip lock plastic baggie (toothpaste, some sunscreen and mouthwash, and some other stuff), and I said; "You gotta be kidding me!" And he said; "No, I am not." Darthvader1 (talk) 05:32, 17 March 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of BASIS International[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 BASIS International requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia.

Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator. noq (talk) 22:38, 25 July 2016 (UTC)
