Initial Greeting

Hello, Ageekgal/Archive1, and welcome to Wikipedia. Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are a few good links for newcomers:

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! By the way, please be sure to sign your name on Talk and vote pages using four tildes (~~~~) to produce your name and the current date, or three tildes (~~~) for just your name. If you have any questions, see the help pages, add a question to the village pump or ask me on my Talk page. Again, welcome! --Eliezer | £€åV€ m€ å m€§§åg€ 06:58, 7 August 2005 (UTC)

Welcome

Hey there, saw you had done some work on the article on Eileen Collins, one of the articles I have on my watchlist. Just thought I'd say hello, welcome, and hope you like the place enough to stick around. If you ever need help with anything, let me know. · Katefan0(scribble) 06:18, August 8, 2005 (UTC)

License tagging for Image:Ford leaf road logo.jpg

Thanks for uploading Image:Ford leaf road logo.jpg. Wikipedia gets thousands of images uploaded every day, and in order to verify that the images can be legally used on Wikipedia, the source and copyright status must be indicated. Images need to have an image tag applied to the image description page indicating the copyright status of the image. This uniform and easy-to-understand method of indicating the license status allows potential re-users of the images to know what they are allowed to do with the images.

For more information on using images, see the following pages:

This is an automated notice by OrphanBot. If you need help on selecting a tag to use, or in adding the tag to the image description, feel free to post a message at Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. 05:07, 8 August 2007 (UTC)

Fixed. Keeping this in my talk for future reference since I don't upload a lot of photos and need the reminders/cheat sheet links. Ageekgal 21:27, 11 August 2007 (UTC)

STS-118

Hi Ageekgal! Nice to see another fellow space enthusiast! I noticed your edit to STS-118, and I'd like to let you know that the wiki-link was provided in the opening introduction of the article, so it is not needed subsequently. Also, the term NASA uses is Mission Specialist Educator, so that's the term we'll use in the article. The article on the educator program does use the term Educator Astronaut, so all bases were covered in that area! I also noticed you reverted the changes, but if you'd like to read more about why that's done that way, the Manual of Style explains that once an item has been wiki-linked, mentions of the item later in the article don't need to be linked. If you have any questions at all about the space projects, or Wikipedia in general, feel free to let me know! I also have a link to "bookmarks" on my user page that contains many helpful and interesting links, should you ever need it. Cheers! ArielGold 04:15, 17 August 2007 (UTC)

Welcome to Wikipedia!!!

Hello Ageekgal! Welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions. If you decide that you need help, check out Wikipedia:Questions, ask me on my talk page, or place {{helpme}} on your talk page and ask your question there. Please remember to sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically produce your name and the date. You may also push the signature button Button sig2.png located above the edit window. Finally, please do your best to always fill in the edit summary field. This is considered an important guideline in Wikipedia. Even a short summary is better than no summary. Below are some pages to facilitate your involvement. Happy editing! -- Kukini hablame aqui 16:48, 28 August 2007 (UTC)

Kibo really is the name of a future space station module

Please revert your change to the International Space Station article, after reading the references given at Japanese Experiment Module to assure yourself that Kibō (Japanese for "hope") really is the name for that module. (Yes, I know in the context of usenet that would be suspici0us. ;-) A particularly reliable reference is at the JAXA web server http://kibo.jaxa.jp/en/. If after reading this you still question the validity of this name, please contact me to discuss it further! (sdsds - talk) 04:04, 27 August 2007 (UTC)

Done. Thanks for the explanation and education. - Ageekgal 04:08, 27 August 2007 (UTC)

WikiProject Space exploration tagging of CCAFS

Hello again! Thanks for noticing the glaring ommission of tags indicating CCAFS and LSAM as being of high importance to the space exploration wikiproject. I totally agree with adding them as "High" importance topics. Just a nit-picking detail, though: the {{WP Space exploration}} banner has been obsoleted by {{WPSpace}}. See Wikipedia:WikiProject Space exploration#Related pages and the comments for {{WP Space exploration}}. It doesn't really do much harm though, since one just invokes the other. Anyway, thanks again for adding these! (sdsds - talk) 08:10, 28 August 2007 (UTC)

User Space

Please be my guest. In reality...my userspace belongs to us all here. Thanks for stopping by. Out of curiosity, how did you find me, anyway? --Kukini hablame aqui 16:45, 28 August 2007 (UTC)

Adding that updated welcome was fun, especially since you have been here forever! --Kukini hablame aqui 16:49, 28 August 2007 (UTC)
Hehe... Some of us take longer to get hooked on the wiki than others. I am enjoying my recent resurgence in interest and activity. Regarding your user page, I figured it was only neighborly to ask and let you know the effort was appreciated/admired. It beats my present disjointed manner of making edits and trying to remember where I literally and figuratively put something I wanted to reference or add! I don't recall where I 'met' you here; I believe it was probably while patrolling for vandalism, and having you beat me to at least one. {grin} - Ageekgal 16:56, 28 August 2007 (UTC)
Doubling over with laughter--I just noticed the welcome template you were referring to. Guess THAT'S where I discovered you from. Too funny. - 22:39, 28 August 2007 (UTC)

Did you try out the new tool I left on this page? It is pretty cool. --Kukini hablame aqui 04:12, 30 August 2007 (UTC)

Haven't yet, but definitely on my {{todo}} list. I see the new links, just hadn't hammered 'em yet. - Ageekgal 04:15, 30 August 2007 (UTC)

WikiProject Assessments

Hello. Thanks for lending a hand with article assessments in the Military history and Ships WikiProjects. However you may wish to review the projects' assessment instructions (see Wikipedia:WikiProject Ships/Assessment and Wikipedia:WikiProject Military history/Assessment) as I noticed that you had performed a couple of non-standard assessments. Specifically in the case of Category talk:Frigates and destroyer escorts of the United States Navy, non-article pages (templates, disambiguation pages, cats, etc.) are generally given a "NA" designation by both projects for both class and importance. Likewise for Talk:Garcia class frigate, the assessment criteria at Wikipedia:WikiProject Ships/Assessment#Importance assessment indicates that ship classes typically are assigned a "high" importance, with "top" importance generally reserved for ship types (however there are a few notable exceptions). Thanks again for your help, and please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or issues. --Kralizec! (talk) 20:41, 1 September 2007 (UTC)

Thank you for the guidance and kindly manner. I've tried to get a handle on the various guidelines and will pay additional attention to them before performing more assessments and page moves. I appreciate your time and assistance. - Ageekgal 21:36, 1 September 2007 (UTC)
Glad to be of service! If you have an interest in naval topics, please consider joining the Ships WikiProject and/or the Maritime warfare task force of the Military history WikiProject. We would be delighted to have you aboard! Please let me know if there is anything I can do for you. Thanks, Kralizec! (talk) 22:01, 1 September 2007 (UTC)

Moving articles

Information.svg Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that recently you carried out a copy and paste page move from USS Koelsch (DE-1049) to USS Koelsch (FF-1049). Please do not move articles by copying and pasting them because it splits the article's history, which is needed for attribution and is helpful in many other ways. If there is an article that you cannot move yourself using the move link at the top of the page, follow the instructions at Wikipedia:Requested moves. Also, if there are any other articles that you copied and pasted, even if it was a long time ago, please list them at Wikipedia:Cut and paste move repair holding pen. Thank you. --Kralizec! (talk) 21:15, 1 September 2007 (UTC)

Welcome

Welcome to WP:Ships! I saw a couple new articles you contributed today, and they look great. Some very minor suggestions:

  • we now use the template {{USN flag}}, rather than the Navy jack that you might find on some older articles.
  • try to keep the info in the infobox brief - like in USS Koelsch (FF-1049), 'sold in 1994' would be plenty of 'fate' information, since it is elaborated upon in the article.
  • where possible, try to break long articles, like USS Voge (FF-1047), into logical sections with section headers.

Again, these are just the tiniest of improvements to otherwise very good articles. Thanks for jumping right in to things! Maralia 03:11, 2 September 2007 (UTC)

AIV

Information.svg Thank you for making a report about Ztaylor38 (talk · contribs · block log) at Wikipedia:Administrator intervention against vandalism. Reporting and removing vandalism is vital to the functioning of Wikipedia and all users are encouraged to revert, warn, and report vandalism. However, administrators generally only block users if they have received a recent final warning (one that mentions that the user may be blocked) and they have recently vandalized after that warning was given. The reported user has not yet been blocked because it appears this has not occurred yet. If this user continues to vandalize after their final warning, please report them to the AIV noticeboard again. Thank you. TigerShark 20:51, 4 September 2007 (UTC)

More specific WikiProject for Energia?

I noticed your tagging Talk:Energia for WikiProject Space. In looking at the Space project's page, don't you think a more specific sub-project would be more appropriate? It would appear that WikiProject Human Spaceflight or Rocketry would be a better fit. Let me know what you think. SchuminWeb (Talk) 23:16, 5 September 2007 (UTC)

Unless I goofed (which is entirely possible), that is exactly what I did -- from the page you linked: {{WPSpace}} -- use {{WPSpace|space_exploration=yes}} for human space flight. I'm rather new to the project though so I'm not a be-all/end-all guide by any means to the best classification scheme. I'm just trying to at least get all the various launch vehicles tagged so they're on the project's radar. - Ageekgal 00:01, 6 September 2007 (UTC)

Archives

If you like, I can construct them for you at the link you have provided...and walk you through the "how to" in using them. I prefer manual archives, as I am a bit of a control freak regarding my user pages. Let me know. --Kukini hablame aqui 00:05, 7 September 2007 (UTC)

Noticed you are keeping at it and doing good work. Keep it up! --Kukini hablame aqui 02:18, 26 September 2007 (UTC)
If the spirit moves you, you are welcome to have the first stab at them. I haven't read what the general guidelines are for archives here (60 days? older? How often to move stuff off, etc.) so I'm walking around a little blind, hence my lack of replies on the subject. Thanks for the kudos, by the way. Trying to be a good wikipedian, and enjoying it in the process. - Ageekgal 01:40, 5 October 2007 (UTC)

Counter vandalism award

Countervandal.png

You get this award for all your hard work on reverting vandalism. This award was made today for people who are good at fighting vandalism. Have a fun day! 1() 18:06, 7 October 2007 (UTC)

Clock crew

Naturally, since I nominated it, I agree that this article should be speedied. However, since anybody besides the creator is permitted to remove a speedy tag, I'm not sure the removal of the tag by the anon editor constitutes vandalism. I reverted an earlier such removal as vandalism, but that was because the same IP had previously vandalized the article. If you have the time, go ahead and WP:AfD it; I would, but I'm on my way out the door in about 10 min. Cheers! --Rrburke(talk) 19:58, 7 October 2007 (UTC)

My eyes are failing me. Somehow I read it as the same IP removing the tag again. Thank you for catching and reverting my error. - Ageekgal 20:23, 7 October 2007 (UTC)

LandBlueBook(.com)

I thought it was pretty obvious, especially once you note that 1) it's been deleted before and 2) LandBlueBook (without the .com) has also been spammed in the past. Please keep being bold :-) Cheers --Pak21 15:26, 9 October 2007 (UTC)

SuccessTech School Shooting

Okay, I agree that the shooter killed himself, but nobody but him is confirmed dead. Everyone else hurt (shooter, excluded)seems to be in "stable" or "slightly elevated" (whatever that means) condition. I guess we can call it a shooting-suicide rather than a murder suicide. Starsfan32 21:51, 10 October 2007 (UTC)

The only one the table is saying is dead is the shooter. That's what "Fatalities: 1 (including the perpetrator)" means. One, total, dead. That dead being, the shooter. That's the standard wording for that infobox. - Ageekgal 21:45, 10 October 2007 (UTC)
... or attempted-murder-suicide, if we want to get uber-specific? ;) - Ageekgal 21:46, 10 October 2007 (UTC)
okay, I'll see what becomes of it, so it's okay for now as is, but still think it should be "shooting-suicide" Starsfan32 21:51, 10 October 2007 (UTC)
Okay that's not the right term for it, but something about it not being an exact murder-suicide, because nobody was murdered....and still the perp committed suicide.Starsfan32 21:58, 10 October 2007 (UTC)

Hiroshima photo request

Hi Ageekgal,

Regarding your request for adding a photo to the article Hiroshima, did you have anything specific in mind? There are already 15 or more pictures in the article, so the template you added, which simply asks for "a photograph," doesn't give us a clear idea of the sort of image you're looking for. Please let us know, and we'll search our files to see if we have what you want.

You can also browse the article on Hiroshima on Commons and commons:Category:Hiroshima, Hiroshima and categories and articles in it to see if the sort of photo you want is available there.

Best regards,

Fg2 23:34, 10 October 2007 (UTC)

Updated. Added in error. Thanks for the responsiveness. - Ageekgal 00:18, 11 October 2007 (UTC)
No problem. Let us know if you do find articles that need photos -- sometimes we can help. Fg2 05:23, 11 October 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Jmhs mascot clipart.png

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Jmhs mascot clipart.png. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. 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 media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. NOTE: once you correct this, please remove the tag from the image's page. STBotI 05:03, 11 October 2007 (UTC)

Took a stab at using the {{logo_fur}}. Under the impression school logos can be used under fair use, given that the Plano Senior High School article does so and it's a Featured Status article. - Ageekgal 05:28, 11 October 2007 (UTC)
