Archive[edit]

Sorry[edit]

Sorry, I didn't know you were archiving :( I just thought that you might be one of those guys that erases their warnings, but you're not! Again Sorry! §†SupaSoldier†§ 01:11, 6 February 2007 (UTC)

Whoa Whoa Whoa, I have been told to edit back talk pages when people try to erase warnings...It was an misunderstanding, I thought you were erasing your warnings but you weren't! I said I was sorry, there was no Vandalism involved I was simply trying to prevent erased warnings, I didn't know you were archiving! §†SupaSoldier†§ 01:16, 6 February 2007 (UTC)

Okay, I'm sorry It was an misunderstanding and an accident! I completely detest Vandalism-Look at my contributions and my Userpage...I hate Vandalism so please do not accuse me of Vandalism on a misunderstanding, I understand how you feel and I am Sorry, I just thought that you were trying to erase warnings nothing else, I have already stated that it was an accident, Not Complete and Total Vandalism. §†SupaSoldier†§ 01:25, 6 February 2007 (UTC)

I completely understand what you're saying...It's Just that on the recent changes it said that you replaced the page with a couple of links and I thought you were Erasing Warnings not Archiving, I didn't know and I am Sorry...and I understand how you think it is Vandalism....I didn't try to Vandalize your page, I just tried to reinstate your talk page, not Vandalize it, Again I am Sorry. §†SupaSoldier†§ 01:35, 6 February 2007 (UTC)

It's not okay at all to Remove Warnings after they are read! And I understand I obviously don't even want to think about doing it again, I said sorry like 40 times, discussion over...Please do not write on my talk page, I need to be on Recent Page Patrol now, Thank You! §†SupaSoldier†§ 01:41, 6 February 2007 (UTC)

I didn't purposely Vandalize your talk page, but I won't argue. I won't do it again...(Trust Me) Well, it's nice to meet you, anyway :^) §†SupaSoldier†§ 01:46, 6 February 2007 (UTC)


Do Not Engage Yamla[edit]

It is very important that you do not further engage Yamla. You should not even respond to the warning he posted above. It is important to recognize that anything other than the most perfectly written statement could provide Yamla grounds to block you again. I don't want to see that happen. You've made great contributions to Wikipedia. Please focus on those contributions, and allow the RfC to take its course. Take care. If you need to contact me regarding this issue, please send me an email, but again, I would encourage you to not further discuss Yamla or his conduct on Wikipedia for right now. Justen 23:35, 7 February 2007 (UTC)

Hi, again. Yamla is making a good faith effort to try and defuse the situation. Again, please consider not further discussing Yamla or any concerns you have, except on the RfC. Even on the RfC, remember to assume good faith. To put that as simply as possible, I just try to assume that everything that anybody else on Wikipedia does or says is sincere, honest, and kind. Sometimes that's really hard to do, I know! But it can really help to resolve especially difficult situations like this one. You're a great editor, and I really want to make sure you can keep contributing your great work to Wikipedia. Please consider helping de-escalate this situation. Justen 00:45, 8 February 2007 (UTC)

Archiving[edit]

Just a note about archiving- when you create an archive, make sure to add a slash ("/") immediately after your username. For example, your next archive name might be User talk:71Demon/Archive 3. Otherwise, it appears as if there's a user by the name of "71Demon Archive 1" and "71Demon Archive 2". It's a little silly, but it's important. I've already fixed both of your previous archives. Ral315 (talk) 15:20, 13 February 2007 (UTC)

Images listed for deletion[edit]

Some of your images or media files have been listed for deletion. Please see Wikipedia:Images and media for deletion if you are interested in preserving them.

Thank you. BigrTex 18:28, 13 February 2007 (UTC)

Category:Appalachia[edit]

Talk about oafishness. You proposed this on my talk page and I never got back to you. I was archiving my January talk page comments and noticed I'd done this to several people, you included. I guess I was just spacey; it's not as if I don't get a big message on my screen when I log in and have a new message! In any event, I certainly did not intend to blow you off.

I think Category:Appalachia is a great idea!

Having said, we've both seen how people can be trigger-happy about new categories. I suggest getting a few allies and helpers by bringing it up first at Talk:Appalachian Mountains and Talk:Appalachia, the two leading articles for the topic.

I suggest establishing some criteria first or else we'll have a real mish-mash -- a road in North Carolina, a town in Mississippi (not even in Appalachia but because of the Appalachian Regional Commission's pork barrel boundaries, there are recurring low level disagreements on the Appalachia talk page), a Christian rock group in WV, etc.

I say that because categories are designed to help readers see at a glance related topics, not as a stamp collection for compulsively categorizing editors that want to put everything remotely related into a given category.

Anyway, you have my support if you first get some other support. I want to make any such effort CfD-proof before we start it! --A. B. (talk) 13:11, 16 February 2007 (UTC)

Possibly unfree Image:Cam_Ranh_HQ500.jpg[edit]

An image that you uploaded or altered, Image:Cam_Ranh_HQ500.jpg, has been listed at Wikipedia:Possibly unfree images because its copyright status is disputed. If the image's copyright status cannot be verified, it may be deleted. Please go to its page for more information if you are interested in it not being deleted. Thank you. Fritz S. (Talk) 21:22, 3 March 2007 (UTC)

Wikiproject: West Virginia[edit]

Hey! I have created a new section on Government containing mostly templates, succession boxes, and list links for West Virginia politicians and government. I have minimally modified a couple of your succession boxes to meet uniformity. I have to go back and modify about 20 that I did months ago just so everything is the same. I hope you do not mind. Thanks! Mphamilton 05:47, 14 March 2007 (UTC)

USS Chicago (1885)[edit]

While editing the USS Chicago (1885) article, I noticed that you recently added [1] it to Category:United States Navy Illinois-related ships. However you used USS Boston (1884) as the Chicago's sort key in this category. Since the article does not note that the ship was ever named Boston, I presume this was a cut-n-paste mistake and have gone ahead and changed the sort key to Chicago. --Kralizec! (talk) 17:40, 14 March 2007 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:Sypolt dave.jpg)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Sypolt dave.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media 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 media 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 all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BetacommandBot 01:05, 21 August 2007 (UTC)

(USS) Seaman[edit]

If ship is not comissioned don`t have a name with prefix USS - temporary has PCO instead (if I remember good). Prefix USS are given only to ships who are comissioned. So your edition is wrong and "Seaman (DD-791)" is better name. --Pmgpmg 13:32, 22 August 2007 (UTC)

Legislature photos...[edit]

Another user was doing some research on Tomblin and found out that the photos belong to the WV Legislature's Office of Reference and Information. We need to find out something from them that they are willing to release their photos via a free license. Do you know Sen. Sypolt very well? Do you think you can get them, the copyright holders, to release them so we can use them on all of the state Sen articles on here? That would be awesome. Unfortunately, we will need more than just his word: we need some wort of email from the office itself.

We could then get WP:WVA to start cranking out some stubs on all of the Legislature members. :)

BTW, long time, no talk. How are things up in Mineral Co. these days? Still fightin' the good fight for good roads? youngamerican (wtf?) 00:04, 23 August 2007 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Steve West (Radio Personality)[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Steve West (Radio Personality) requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for biographies.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), 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. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you. Ironholds (talk) 13:09, 4 September 2009 (UTC)

Articles for deletion nomination of Patterson Creek Road[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

I have nominated Patterson Creek Road, an article that you created, for deletion. I do not think that this article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and have explained why at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Patterson Creek Road. Your opinions on the matter are welcome at that same discussion page; also, you are welcome to edit the article to address these concerns. Thank you for your time.

Please contact me if you're unsure why you received this message. Brian Powell (talk) 09:19, 15 January 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Robert C. Byrd Institute[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Robert C. Byrd Institute requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about an organization or company, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for organizations and companies. You may also wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles - see the Article Wizard.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), 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.

AfD nomination of Wayne C. Spiggle[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

An editor has nominated one or more articles which you have created or worked on, for deletion. The nominated article is Wayne C. Spiggle. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also Wikipedia:Notability and "What Wikipedia is not").

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion(s) by adding your comments to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Wayne C. Spiggle. Please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate.

Please note: This is an automatic notification by a bot. I have nothing to do with this article or the deletion nomination, and can't do anything about it. --Erwin85Bot (talk) 01:07, 5 May 2010 (UTC)

Unreferenced BLPs[edit]

Information.svg Hello 71Demon! Thank you for your contributions. I am a bot notifying you on behalf of the the unreferenced biographies team that 2 of the articles that you created are currently tagged as Unreferenced Biographies of Living Persons. The biographies of living persons policy requires that all personal or potentially controversial information be sourced. In addition, to ensure verifiability, all biographies should be based on reliable sources. If you were to bring these articles up to standards, it would greatly help us with the current 2,421 article backlog. Once the articles are adequately referenced, please remove the {{unreferencedBLP}} tag. Here is the list:

  1. Vic Sprouse - Find sources: "Vic Sprouse" – news · newspapers · books · scholar · HighBeam · JSTOR · free images · free news sources · The Wikipedia Library · NYT · WP reference
  2. Sarah Minear - Find sources: "Sarah Minear" – news · newspapers · books · scholar · HighBeam · JSTOR · free images · free news sources · The Wikipedia Library · NYT · WP reference

File source problem with File:LingenfelterTrophy.jpg[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thank you for uploading File:LingenfelterTrophy.jpg. I noticed that 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, please add a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of that website's terms of use of its content. However, if the copyright holder is a party unaffiliated from the website's publisher, that copyright should also be acknowledged.

If you have uploaded other files, consider verifying that you have specified sources for those files as well. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged per Wikipedia's criteria for speedy deletion, F4. If the image is copyrighted and non-free, the image will be deleted 48 hours after 18:45, 23 December 2010 (UTC) per speedy deletion criterion F7. If you have any questions or are in need of assistance please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Kelly hi! 18:45, 23 December 2010 (UTC)

File:Staggers-truman1948.jpg needs authorship information.[edit]

Dear uploader:

The media file you uploaded as File:Staggers-truman1948.jpg appears to be missing information as to its authorship (and or source), or if you did provide such information, it is confusing for others trying to make use of the image.

It would be appreciated if you would consider updating the file description page, to make the authorship of the media clearer.

Although some images may not need author information in obvious cases, (such where an applicable source is provided),authorship information aids users of the image, and helps ensure that appropriate credit is given (a requirement of some licenses).

If you created this media yourself, please consider explicitly including your user name, for which:{{subst:usernameexpand|71Demon}} will produce an appropriate expansion,

or the {{own}} template..

If you have any questions please see Help:Image page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 13:38, 14 May 2011 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Proposed deletion of Chris Jacobs (television host)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Chris Jacobs (television host) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

A nn TV host; significant RS coverage not found. Sources present in the article are passing mentions.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the page to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.
