Jay Mundy[edit]

Re your comments on talk - it would be best to register your vote here: Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Jay Mundy so that it is tallied. Best, Sylvain1972 (talk) 14:23, 19 June 2009 (UTC)

Note on Yeshiva article and request for guidance[edit]

Please correct me if this is not the proper use of a user talk page.

I just wanted to mention that I added a comment after your comment on "Yeshiva", explaining the difference between the American usage of the term and the historical / international one, which is used by the article (not mine). I think this has caused quite a bit of misunderstanding on that page--84.229.51.101 (talk) 10:06, 8 January 2010 (UTC).

April 2013[edit]

Please stop your disruptive editing. If you continue to blank out or remove portions of page content, templates or other materials from Wikipedia, you may be blocked from editing. Thank you. Icarus of old (talk)

on the contrary, a vandal is repeatedly posting wrong information and information from a source that dishonestly claims Rosler to be a faculty member. Previously it was also listed that Rosler was born i Canada, leading to several public announcements to that effect. Threats are not appreciated. Why not go after the vandal?

Stop hand nuvola.svg Next time you remove referenced material from this article you will be blocked from editing. The choice is yours. Moriori (talk) 02:46, 15 April 2013 (UTC)
i just saw this, and although I am not going to go back and look at the article at present,  I am not surprised that people don't want to work on improving wikipedia when correcting false information leads to really crude threats posed in the most impolite possible manner and without explanation. Just because something is 'referenced' DOES NOT mean it is correct. Obviously.

The fact that the page I was correcting was repeatedly vandalized clearly means nothing to "Moriori" (who rather than answering my question simply added the grotesque phrase 'the choice is yours,' to the threat. Actio (talk) 17:49, 8 December 2013 (UTC)

Cindy Sherman[edit]

You are free to fix the Sherman article substantively. Your problem appears to be that you do not follow appropriate MOS, BLP, etc. If you follow the reading material suggested in the welcome message at the top of the page, especially Learn from others, Play nicely with others and Contribute, Contribute, Contribute!, you should be OK. Feel free to contact me if you have any edits you are not sure about, and I will advise as best I can. Quis separabit? 21:19, 24 February 2015 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for August 17[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Jerzy Popiełuszko, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Williamsburg and Greenpoint. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Family of Man[edit]

Actio, yes I would not nominate this article as of high quality...it's a huge topic that requires many more contributors putting in. It is good to see your interest and to have your amendment, but your immoderate language is unpleasant...keep your hat on! I'm sure you have constructive and learned input to bring the The Family of Man article up to a standard of which you approve. It would be very welcome. I'll own up, my signature was not appearing on comments in talk pages for a while due to some malfunction...I have been kindly helped by some generous editors to sort that. Best wishes Jamesmcardle(talk) 08:00, 27 February 2017 (UTC)

so what's the solution? The subject is of great interest to photography history, and i am not aware of immoderate language. Sorry. Tagging one writer , and an eminent one at that, with a political slant is not a good approach, imo. and suggests a tentative hold on the lineup of writers and commentators on this landmark exhibition and on the field in general. cheers.
