Erik Fleming photo[edit]

Hi Aaaccc -- nice job tracking down a freely-licensed photo of Fleming! Great to have a photo to illustrate these articles. -Pete (talk) 21:20, 10 October 2010 (UTC)

Carly Fiorina picture[edit]

You have been reverted by at least four different editors now on your change (and thats only ones I happened to notice in my watchlist). That pretty much spells out that you do not have consensus for the change. Please post on the talk page and establish concensus before making the change again. The image you are switching to is lower quality and not suitable for the main article image and is already present at another inline location within the page. Also the photo according to its page is a early 2007 photo.. not 2010 as your edit comment suggests. thanks -Tracer9999 (talk) 12:33, 23 October 2010 (UTC)

Don't put that picture back as the main Fiorina picture - to be blunt, it's crap. You are also lying when you say the picture is from 2010 - that doesn't go over too well here. Ravensfire (talk) 01:04, 18 December 2010 (UTC)
Ravensfire, I am not lying when I say the photo is from 2010. The person that added it to flickr put the wrong date. This is easy to see because in the photos I have uploaded that you say are from 2007. Fiorina is seen with a post-cancer treatment appearance and she was not treat for cancer until 2009. Sincerely -Aaaccc (talk), 26 December 2010 (UTC)

Removal of candidates at United States Senate election in Illinois, 2010[edit]

Your removal of candidates from the infobox of United States Senate election in Illinois, 2010 was inappropriate. A discussion is being held on the talk page and no consensus exists to remove the candidates. Likewise, I will give you a barnstar if you can point to the police or guideline which you referred to as a rule for the candidates in the infobox. Please be more careful in the future and save us all time and energy.--TM 01:27, 8 November 2010 (UTC)

AFD Categories[edit]

Good morning. I've corrected the categories at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Priscilla Boutcher. When you start an AFD, remember that you can use the {{afd2}} template to add the appropriate category. If it's a biography, just add "|cat=b" to the template, or change the {{REMOVE THIS TEMPLATE WHEN CLOSING THIS AfD}} parameter to a "b". Adding the categories directly ends up sorting every debate from that day into the same category, which creates a bit of a mess. No big deal, and it's easily fixed, but I wanted to make sure you knew how the template works, for when you next nominate an article. Thanks, UltraExactZZ Said ~ Did 13:29, 27 January 2011 (UTC)

Again, please do not add categories to AFD debates. Use the single-letter code with the {{REMOVE THIS TEMPLATE WHEN CLOSING THIS AfD}} template. I've removed categories from two of your AFDs this morning; the single-letter code creates the category for you, so adding the second ends up bringing the entire log into the category, which is confusing. Thanks! UltraExactZZ Said ~ Did 15:52, 21 February 2011 (UTC)
See this diff; please don't do that. It just makes additional work for other editors, who have to correct the categories. Thanks. UltraExactZZ Said ~ Did 13:27, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
And another at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Randy Simms. If you're using a script to set up your AFDs, it's possible that it's broken in some fashion. Could you please doublecheck? Or let me know and I can fix it for you. Either way, this continues to be a problem. Thanks! UltraExactZZ Said ~ Did 15:36, 25 March 2011 (UTC)
And another. I'm really curious to know if you disagree with the current categorizing method, or if you're just deliberately ignoring my requests for discussion on the matter. UltraExactZZ Said ~ Did 17:59, 28 March 2011 (UTC)
Awesome. Sorry for the snark, I just didn't realize you were missing my posts. It's not a huge problem, but it ends up adding the entire day's AFD log to the, for example, Biographical AFD category. Now that you know, it's easily fixed - and thank you again, btw. Best to you, UltraExactZZ Said ~ Did 20:25, 28 March 2011 (UTC)

Dialogue[edit]

Hey, I've started a discussion on notable over at Template talk:Canadian federal political parties. I'd appreciate it if you could provide some feedback. Thanks. :-) Me-123567-Me (talk) 15:34, 10 February 2011 (UTC)

28th Alberta general election[edit]

Hello. Please see WT:CANADA#Party leaders for future elections, where I make my case, that, using Stelmach and Swann as examples, we don't know who will run in a future election, and assuming that incumbents will, is a WP:CRYSTAL violation. 117Avenue (talk) 22:49, 11 February 2011 (UTC)

Citing[edit]

You added citations to Yvonne Jones's article but I do not see any information in the news artcles you cited to support the statements on her page. Is there a reason why these article were used? Newfoundlander&Labradorian (talk) 22:29, 13 February 2011 (UTC)

I also noticed this and removed the references from the section, as sources are supposed to support the material in the article. Random articles relating to health care and energy may show she has taken an interest in those topics, but they don't actually back up the announcement of her three priorities, which is what the article requires. Cmr08 (talk) 06:32, 14 February 2011 (UTC)
I researched Jones positions on the issues and same up with those references. I was unable to find the actual article in which she gives out those three as her "top priorities". Aaaccc (talk), 6 March 2011 (UTC)

Vaughn Granter[edit]

Where did you see that he was getting sworn in on the March 16? Just wondering because I've been asking people about it and no one seemed to know. Newfoundlander&Labradorian (talk) 18:01, 13 March 2011 (UTC)

As you can see here the Lieutenant Governor's website says he will preside over Granter's swearing in on Wednesday, March 16th. Aaaccc (talk), 13 March 2011 (UTC)

Changing !votes of other users at Afd - Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of current United States governors by religion[edit]

What were you doing with this edit? You changed the substantive comment of my !vote at AfD. That's absolutely unacceptable. I certainly hope it was a mistake, but even then I'm not sure how it could be. People get touchy about simple spelling fixes in discussions (not me, but you should be aware of this)... substantive changes are unacceptable. Shadowjams (talk) 00:05, 17 March 2011 (UTC)

You did similar edits here and here, although those aren't substantive. However you did the same thing again here to DGG as you did to me, changing a Keep into a Redirect. I've informed DGG of this change as well because that article was deleted and I believe he should be able to decide if the change warrants a discussion at Deletion Review. I only went back as far as February, but if you've done this in other places please notify those people as well. Shadowjams (talk) 00:11, 17 March 2011 (UTC)

Flickr[edit]

Wow! How do you find pictures so fast? Are you searching Flickr daily for politicians that need pictures? Most of the pictures I've seen you find, were only uploaded to Flickr a day or two prior. 117Avenue (talk) 22:51, 5 April 2011 (UTC)

I do search flickr for photos of politicians I know need them. Photos from Michael Ignatieff's flickr account are useable on the Commons and that helps get some needed photos in that area out of the way. Aaaccc (talk), 5 April 2011 (UTC)
Interesting, I would think that the parties would want to keep their pictures copyrighted. 117Avenue (talk) 23:41, 5 April 2011 (UTC)

Formatting Canadian electoral district articles[edit]

I am soliciting opinions on how percentages should be shown in electoral district results tables here: Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Electoral_districts_in_Canada#Formatting_results_tables. Your opinion would be welcome. Regards, Ground Zero | t 02:28, 8 June 2011 (UTC)

Kathy Dunderdale[edit]

I don't know if you have any recommendations but I've been planning on expanding the Kathy Dunderdale article but I'm unsure what information could be added. I mentioned this in the article's talk page a few weeks ago but never got any responses, I thought you may have some ideas? Newfoundlander&Labradorian (talk) 18:32, 20 August 2011 (UTC)

Nomination of Anna Di Carlo for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Anna Di Carlo is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Anna Di Carlo until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on good quality evidence, and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion template from the top of the article. — CharlieEchoTango — 05:37, 3 October 2011 (UTC)

Chris Mitchelmore[edit]

For future reference, if there are duplicate articles, you can just redirect the dupe. Ten Pound Hammer(What did I screw up now?) 02:22, 24 April 2012 (UTC)

June 2012[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. It might not have been your intention, but your recent edit removed content from Yvonne Jones. When removing content, please specify a reason in the edit summary and discuss edits that are likely to be controversial on the article's talk page. If this was a mistake, don't worry; the content has been restored, as you can see from the page history. Take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia, and if you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. Thank you. Zhou Yu (talk) 01:37, 19 June 2012 (UTC)

Deletion sorting[edit]

Hello Aaaccc, when you add an AfD to a delsort page such as you did with Jason Crummey at Politicians & Canada (step 1), you need to tag the AfD by adding the relevant tag (step 2), in this case {{subst:delsort|Politicians|~~~~}} & {{subst:delsort|Canada|~~~~}}, which will inform editors that it has been listed there & avoid it possibly being listed more then once. Regards ★☆ DUCKISJAMMMY☆★ 21:47, 14 January 2013 (UTC)

Amber Heard[edit]

Rumors have not been confirmed, that's why the article explicitly states it's a rumor, one which is sufficiently supported by external news sources. Happy Evil Dude (talk) 20:23, 14 June 2013 (UTC)

Previous edits have set the standard of not including rumors. Aaaccc (talk) 20:39, 14 June 2013 (UTC)
Agree with Aaaccc. Per the WP:BLP policy, please "avoid repeating rumors". Wikipedia is not a tabloid. Bishonen | talk 21:26, 14 June 2013 (UTC).
