Inline Citations[edit]

Hi lisa. Just stopping by because I saw your use of the 'ref' perameter on Road Troll, and I thought you might be interested in learning about the new version, Cite Web. This allows for full, in-line citations as you'd find in a research journal (now a requirement for an article to be rated Good or Featured). Here's how it works: after what you're adding the citation to, put the cite web template, along with whatever parameters are neccisary. Typically, you'll need the first three (though you can still add as many parameters as neccisary), so that'll look something like this:

<ref>{{cite web|url=|title=Example Title|accessdate=2006-10-03}}</ref>

However, there's a second part needed as well, even if you choose to continue using just the ref parameter. At the bottom of the article, create a section entitled, "References", and in it, put simply:


This creates a full, printed out list of your references, so you don't just have the numbers in the article. I'll do this part on Road Troll so you can see how it works. If you're curious, there are similar citation templates for citing any source you can think of. Hope you find all that helpful! --InShaneee 14:34, 4 October 2006 (UTC)

Loading pics[edit]

Dont forget to turn on your regular email, so we can communicate privately. To load a picture:

  • What links here
  • Related changes
  • User contributions
  • E-mail this user
  • Upload file
  • Special pages
  • Printable version
  • Permanent link

Go to the menu on the left and choose Upload file. Then browse till you find it. Once uploaded it gets a name based on the file name you uploaded. So it becomes "Image:WhateverInamedIt.jpg". Then cut and paste it back into the article as [[Image:WhateverInamedIt.jpg|thumb|caption]]


Actually, I had Werdna himself help me with the setup. The howto page is here. Basically, here's what you'll need: {{subst:User:Werdnabot/Archiver/Template|age=(age)|target=(target)|dounreplied=(dounreplied)}}

Age is how old (in days) a thread must be before archiving, target is the page to archive to (I have mine in the format:

"User talk:Lisapollison/Archive/{{CURRENTMONTHABBREV}}"

which creates date-sensitive archives), and dounreplied, if set to "yes", will archive threads with just one comment in them (by default, these are ignored by the bot). Of course, remove all the quotes from these before adding them. That help any? :) --InShaneee 19:35, 12 October 2006 (UTC)

Scarlett the cat[edit]

I've at least gotten together a stub on the request you made. I also noted that the North Shore Animal League itself has no article yet. If you could get together some information about that organization to create an article, I think we would all be grateful. I will try to work on one myself, but right now, with a number of major projects in the offing, I may rather quickly forget this one. If nothing else, though, the red link should be enough to get someone to create a North Shore artile in time. Thanks for the suggestion. And, for what it's worth, we would certainly welcome you as a member of the project if you should want to join it. Badbilltucker 15:08, 20 October 2006 (UTC)

Leonard Kastle[edit]

Thanks for your praise. The tidbit the Kastle wrote operas caught my attention when reading the review of The Honeymoon Killers in Video Watchdog. While its presence in the Criterion Collection set my expectations a bit too high, it is a very good film. Everything on theat page I got either from Criterion's interview with him (in which he dropped about five hints about his sexual preference, but nothing citable) or from the page on The Leonard Kastle Papers, which I forwarded to my dad, whose mother and aunts were all raised by the Shakers that consequently has him interested in everything Shaker-related. I'd be interested in hearing his work. My brief experience as a music student (never my major) gave the imperssion that the academy wants more Arnold Schoenbergs and Milton Babbitts and could care less about Leonard Kastles and Michael Nymans. --Scottandrewhutchins 18:48, 31 October 2006 (UTC)

You're welcome to e-mail me whatever you'd like about this. Info is on my profile. --Scottandrewhutchins 21:08, 1 November 2006 (UTC)

Gloria Ramirez[edit]

I actually wrote that article when you asked on paranormal page. :) I'm not that great of an author so it might not be great right now... but I've collected all the sources for someone to fill it out with some beautiful prose. ---J.S (T/C) 17:13, 12 December 2006 (UTC)

Welcome to WikiProject LGBT studies![edit]

Drawing-Gay flag.png

Hi, Lisapollison/Talk, welcome to WikiProject LGBT Studies!

We are a growing community of Wikipedia editors dedicated to identifying, categorizing, and improving articles of interest to the LGBT community. Some points that may be helpful:

  • Our main aim is to help improve LGBT-related articles, so if someone asks for help with an article, please try your hardest to help them if you are able.
  • Most important discussions take place on the project's main discussion page; it is highly recommended that you watchlist it.
  • The project has several ongoing and developing activities, such as article quality assessment, peer review and a project-wide article collaboration, all of which you are welcome to take part in. We also have a unique program to improve our lower quality articles, Jumpaclass, so please consider signing up there.
  • If you have another language besides English, please consider adding yourself to our translation section, to help us improve our foreign LGBT topics.
  • If you're planning to stay, have a square in our quilt! You can put anything you want in it.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask on the talk page, and we will be happy to help you.

And once again - Welcome!

-- SatyrTN (talk | contribs) 21:35, 7 February 2007 (UTC)

Not a problem at all! Feel free to tag articles, and if you do, go ahead and rate them. The assessment guidelines will help, and it doesn't have to be perfect. We currently have 0 un-assessed articles, and I try to keep it that way :) And again, welcome to the WP! Jump in wherever you'd like - assessment I mentioned, jump-a-class can be fun, translation if you feel so inclined, collaboration can always use some input, peer-review is just getting started, or just hang out at the talk page and see what's going on. By the way, each of those links is a shortcut, in case you're interested. So Welcome!! -- SatyrTN (talk | contribs) 02:15, 8 February 2007 (UTC)

Deletion of Criticism and response in parapsychology[edit]

Hi Lisa, I read your comment on my little piece on the Paranormal project talk page. So I know you understand about true belief either way. I'm wondering if you'd like to comment/vote on the recent move to delete the Criticism and response in parapsychology article. I heavily edited much of it (the content was transferred from the main Parapsychology page). I'm perhaps too interested, but I'm wondering if the move to delete is idologically motivated, given the paucity of reasons (the main one is "I do not believe that Wikipedia is the proper place to air disagreements. Martinphi (Talk Ψ Contribs) 02:37, 9 February 2007 (UTC)

Thanks! ^^[edit]

Thanks! :) The picture is of my actual cat, Crystal, and is what inspired me to write the article. --Candy-Panda 02:56, 9 February 2007 (UTC)

Parapsychology response, response[edit]

That's a totally great and erudite commentary (: . But you're also supposed to vote. Martinphi (Talk Ψ Contribs) 03:22, 9 February 2007 (UTC)

I've been advised to create a sandbox for the Criticism and response in parapsychology article. It's here, renamed to Controversy in parapsychology. I'm not sure if people want to edit under my user page, or edit the main article. But, if it's decided to edit the sandbox, It would be great to have your input. I won't be editing in the beginning, while I see what format people want to use etc. I'm putting this on several talk pages. Martinphi (Talk Ψ Contribs) 05:29, 10 February 2007 (UTC)

Welcome to the Military history WikiProject![edit]

I was intending on posting that if you hadn't already found that but unfortunately it was neither linked to either the Horror of Fang Rock or Max Headroom articles. DrWho42 01:51, 25 February 2007 (UTC)

Cocktail article request[edit]

Hi there, and thanks for your request for a new cocktail article. I have created the new article for you, although I encourage you to be bold in future. The article can be found at "Pegu (cocktail), and desperately needs some more content, particularly with regards to the history, popularity and culture of the drink. In addition, my brief research has uncovered some ambiguity as to the precise ingredient list and quantities. Although variation in the proportion of ingredients is not unusual, difference in the ingredients used is. As a priority, I encourage you to check the recipe in the infobox (which I got from the first google result for "pegu cocktail"), to ensure it is the correct and most common version. If not, please feel free to edit the infobox to correct the recipe. Happy editing! Happy-melon 17:54, 3 March 2007 (UTC)

Photo of an engorged tick[edit]

Hi, I am glad you like the photo. You are free to take any of the enlarged pictures from my Ticks article ( ) and upload it and use it on Wiki. - I would do it myself, but unfortunately I don't have enough time. -> Just upload it, share alike. :-)

Thanks & Hello[edit]

As it says, thanks, and hello!

To answer your un-question, I'm a Christian. (not Christian Scientist).

My experience with LGAT was that I went through the entire series of courses put on by one of the companies who does personal growth and development training. It was a phenomenal (using one of the words I've challenged) experience. In fact, that training is what helped me recognize that I was choosing to stay engaged with Smee and then helped me to choose differently.

It's sad to see attacks that are launched out of ignorance. But I suppose that is why Iraq is still at war too.

Thank you again for the kind words of support.

-Peace in God. Lsi john 00:47, 20 April 2007 (UTC)

Perhaps my thoughts, on my userpage, will give a more concise (though windy) explanation of my views Lsi john 13:54, 20 April 2007 (UTC)

Tex Watson[edit]

The picture you refer to is indeed a picture of Tex, Kristin and Suzan - but Kristin, in the caption, is clearly referred to as Tex's wife. Please send me links to any other Internet reference to a marriage between Tex and Suzan, otherwise my statement - that it is an unbelievable lie - should stand. I find it incredible that she would even consider marrying the man who murdered her mother. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by BassPlyr23 (talkcontribs) 21:44, 21 April 2007 (UTC).

Here's the original link - - and the wedding photo is clearly that of Tex and Kristin. Sorry I jumped all over you as the source of the statement. As a student of the Manson case for nearly 35 years, I was just incredulous that such an outrageous statement could be posted on Wikipedia and be believed.

Hi. Thanks for your message, but I didn't add the Wyoming Incident to List of fictional occurrences of broadcast signal intrusion, and I really don't know much about the incident at all.

Kathleen Soliah[edit]

I actually didn't add the part about her kicking a pregant woman- there was a typographical error there and I fixed it. I don't know much about the SLA or Kathleen Soliah. I couldn't tell you what the source is because I hadn't even heard of that before I read the article. Pixistik1687 22:34, 6 May 2007 (UTC)

Happy to help keep an eye on that one. I had seen your ANI post about it, and since I see a hell of a lot of the same kind of juvenile shit-stirring on the new pages, I though I'd pitch in. Eggishorn 17:10, 7 May 2007 (UTC)

Lipollis:Indigo Children deleted material and new sources and references

Sorry - did that wrong - I'm temporarily pasting the material here for my own use:

Related Movements[edit]

In addition to the Indigo Child concept, there are seemingly related movements being proposed within the New Age culture. In her article, The New Humans[1], Mary Rodwell suggests that the Indigo Children are part of a larger phenonmenon called The Starkids. In that article she states:

"Metaphysicians and other gurus also share the belief and the anticipation of this recent emergence of the new type of human they call Indigos. They are also referred to as Children of the New Millennium, Crystal Children, Children of Light, Golden Children, to mention a few."[2]

Psychologist and author, Doreen Virtue[3] proposes another new and emerging group of children she refers to as Crystal Children and who are often referred to by others as Crystal Kids. She proposes that Crystal Chidren are a second-wave of Indigo Children, younger and with a different prupose:

" Perhaps you've noticed this special new "breed" of children rapidly populating our planet. They are happy, delightful, and forgiving. This generation of new lightworkers, roughly ages 0 through 7, are like no previous generation. Ideal in many ways, they are the pointers for where humanity is headed . . . and it's a good direction!

New source referring to Doreen Virtue's coining the phrase Crystal Children: Discarded Science: Ideas That Seemed Good at the Time... By John Grant Page 195 ISBN 1904332498 2006 Sterling Publishing Company, Inc. 2006
