Hi, Moogle. Thanks for editing. Feel free to drop by my page or User:Visorstuff's to see more about Mormonism on the Wikipedia. I have a little list of Mormon Wikipedians at my page. Though it is not complete, you are welcome to add yourself to the list. Visorstuff has been kind of a great organizer. Cogden has added a lot of great content. Cookiecaper has recently been doing good image additions and organization. Cool Hand Luke is a good seasoned user. BoNoMoJo hasn't been around a lot lately. Tom - Talk 06:52, Nov 30, 2004 (UTC)

Mormonism to-dos[edit]

Moogle, you may have noticed as you have been dropping in on several of the Mormonism related articles that a few undesirable things have lately happened that maybe you could help us clean up.

  • Some of the Mormonism articles have had external links to the LDS Church pasted into them. This is a problem for two reasons: first, pasting of external links into multiple articles is considered spamming by most editors and second, we have been trying to avoid the biased representation that the LDS Church is Mormonism (though of course we say the truth that it is the overwhelmingly dominant portion of the Latter Day Saint Movement). You might take the opportunity to help us remove all those except at the LDS Church article.
  • Over time, some of the articles begin to resemble a "Usenet forum" discussion instead of an encyclopedia article. For example Linguistics and the Book of Mormon had a section on Bible that was getting bad. I simply commented out the section last night pending fixing because it was poorly worded and confusing. Perhaps you have solutions for some of these areas.

We would all sure appreciate any help you can give us as we try to keep things in order in "our" little corner of the Wikipedia. Be sure to ask questions liberally at the discussion pages behind each article. Tom - Talk 14:37, Nov 30, 2004 (UTC)


Hi, Moogle. I changed that in the scriptsa a while ago. 'en' now points to and Σ to It will take time before you see this online, as scripts need to be adapted to new database compression scheme, waiting for dumps right now. Cheers, Erik Zachte 11:03, 9 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Req for you to categorize Mormonism[edit]

I saw the Mormonims MOS article... can you assign it to an apprpriate category? It looks like quite a lot of work went into is (good job, btw), so I don't want to dump it into an inapprop. category. Does it belong in wiki space?Feco 08:01, 8 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Question for Tom[edit]

I have been known to insert comments in the middle before, but I didn't mean to do it this time. In fact, I'm going to move it. Hope that's ok. Thanks. Tom Haws 02:44, Apr 10, 2005 (UTC)

LDS Poll Page and a Question[edit]

On the Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Latter Day Saint movement page, I've asked about the viability of creating an Alert page for vandalism, anon usage and welcoming newcomers. First of all, would such a question be more appropriate on your new poll page? Second, would such an Alert page fit into your efforts at reorganizing the LDS pages? Please look at the question just above your most recent comment. (btw - don't feel to badly about slow adaptation to your new pages. Change is always accepted slowly - especially by Mormons!) Thanks.

Image tags[edit]

Hi Moogle: Thanks for the message. I think that {{CopyrightedFreeUseProvided}} would be the best tag for this, because you can include the message from the University about keeping the TM symbol in the image. Also, you could put {{Confirmation}} on the image talk page and follow the instructions from that, just in case there are any issues later about the permission that you recieved from the PR department of SUU.

Actually, TRAX is a light rail system. Commuter rail serves a more regional area with less frequency in stops, while light rail serves a more localized area with a higher frequency of stations. TRAX has no plans to expand to Layton anytime in the future. However, a commuter rail system has just begun construction along the Wasatch Front that will run from Ogden to Salt Lake City, and does have a stop planned for Layton. The land that was sold to UTA was therefore for the commuter rail line planned, not for any future TRAX line. Hope this clears up any confusion you may have had. bob rulz 21:14, 29 September 2005 (UTC)

You have received this message because you have edited a Salt Lake City media article in the past. We have recently had an edit war regarding the wording and inclusion of a paragraph on the KTVX article. In hopes of resolving this I have put together an informal survey. If you are interested, please stop by Talk:KTVX and add a vote. Thanks, A 09:39, 7 December 2005 (UTC)

LDS alert[edit]

Hello! As you have contributed to LDS/Mormon articles in the past, this is a friendly heads-up that Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/List_of_temples_of_The_Church_of_Jesus_Christ_of_Latter-day_Saints is currently being discussed. Any comments you have regarding the issue would be appreciated. Thanks! —akghetto talk 10:56, 7 January 2006 (UTC)

WikiProject LDS[edit]

Hello! I noticed you were on the list of members in the LDS WikiProject, and I was wondering if you were still interested in helping out there. You see, over the past few months, it appears that it has slowly drifted into inactivity. But you CAN help. Please consider doing both of the following:

  1. Take ONE thing form the To-Do list and do it. Once you're done with it, remove it from the list, and from the<>{{Template:LDSprojectbox}}<>, so we know its done. Keep the page on your watchlist. We have a backlog going for more than half a year. Please help to work on it, and remove it.
  2. Vote on the LDSCOTF, and work on it!
  3. Tell your friends (esp. LDS friends, & esp. Wikipedian friends) about this WikiProject, and enocourage them to join (and be active).

Remember: your involvement in this WikiProject is just that - involvement! Please help us out.

(Note: I'm sending this out to everyone who's name was on the membership list, so I will NOT be watching this page for a response. If you want to contact me, do it on MY talk page, please.)

Thanks for all that you do -Trevdna 15:50, 11 January 2006 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image (Image:SUU Birdmark.jpg)[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:SUU Birdmark.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 'image' 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 "Image" 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. fuzzy510 03:48, 6 July 2007 (UTC)

August 2008[edit]

Information.svg Hi, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you recently tried to give Beijing Organizing Committee a different title by copying its content and pasting it into Beijing Organizing Committee for the Olympic Games. This is known as a "cut and paste move", and it is considered undesirable because it splits the page history which is needed for attribution and various other purposes. Instead, the software used by Wikipedia has a feature that allows pages to be moved to a new title together with their edit history.

In most cases, you should be able to move an article yourself using the "Move" tab at the top of the page. This both preserves the page history intact and automatically creates a redirect from the old title to the new. If you cannot perform a particular page move yourself this way (e.g. because a page already exists at the target title), please follow the instructions at requested moves to have it moved by someone else. Also, if there are any other articles that you moved by copying and pasting, even if it was a long time ago, please list them at Wikipedia:Cut and paste move repair holding pen. Thank you. --Geniac (talk) 19:51, 14 August 2008 (UTC)

Hi! A request for your input[edit]

Per wp:CANVASSING, this is a neutrally worded notice being sent, without any type of "selection" bias, to everyone that edited fairly recently the MOS page about how to term the Latter Day Saints denominations on Wikipedia in the belief that your various and collective expertise or expertises, if that's a plural, can help us improve its wording, if possible. a bit. The most pertinent section is here. And the issue is to what degree the terms "Mormon church" and "LDS church" relate to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, in specific, and to what kind of sourcing should be used to document this. Thanks, if you find time and the interest to look into the matter and offer your opinion or commentary.--Hodgson-Burnett's Secret Garden (talk) 23:31, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
