TfD nomination of libertarianism template

I invite you to share your opinion about the nomination for deletion of the Libertarian sidebar. Since I often see you editing the Template:Libertarianism sidebar, I am doing this since there appears to lack a broad range of libertarians reaching a consensus. Thank you for your time.

Libertarian Democrats

Hi! I noticed that you started the Libertarian Democrat article. I thought that you might like to check out the Freedom Democrats Wiki, as well. EPM (talk) 17:57, 7 November 2008 (UTC)

Agorism sidebar

I invite you to share your opinion about the nomination for deletion of the Agorism and Agorism sidebar. I am doing this since there appears to lack a broad range of libertarians reaching a consensus. Thank you for your time. PublicSquare (talk) 15:48, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

Labor / Worker's Rights project

I recently drafted a proposal for a Worker's Rights & Labor Issues WikiProject ... I thought you might be interested, since you are working on the Anarchism project ...

Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to make constructive contributions to Wikipedia, at least one of your recent edits, such as the one you made to Inflation, did not appear to be constructive and has been reverted. Please use the sandbox for any test edits you would like to make, and read the welcome page to learn more about contributing constructively to this encyclopedia. Thank you. LK (talk) 07:50, 26 April 2009 (UTC)

Considering that I've been a member for four years, your welcome comes a bit late. In any event, I believe my edit was entirely constructive, since my edit allowed for the information being presented to be something aggreable to all factions on the debate. To revert it back to its previous status allows the disagreements to return, thus disenfranchising the holders of certain positions in favour of others.
Regards,

D.C. Meetup, Saturday, June 6, 2009

The 7th DC Meetup dinner will be held this Saturday, June 6th, starting at 5 p.m. The event will be at Bertucci's, near George Washington University and the Foggy Bottom metro station. It will follow the Apps for Democracy open source event at GWU. For details or to RSVP if you haven't already, see Wikipedia:Meetup/DC 7. (You have received this announcement because your user page indicates that you live in Maryland, Virginia, or DC.)
Delivered by The Helpful Bot at 19:34, 2 June 2009 (UTC) to report errors, please leave a note here.

Volunteer opportunity in Bethesda, Thursday, July 16

The Wikimedia Foundation will be conducting an all-day Academy at the National Institutes of Health, in Bethesda, Maryland, on Thursday, July 16. The team that will be teaching at the Academy, a mix of paid staff and volunteers, is looking for four more volunteers to be teaching assistants, providing one-to-one assistance in workshops whenever a workshop participant has a problem following the instructional directions. (We currently have two editors signed up as teaching assistants, and are looking for a total of six.)

The NIH editing workshops are only for two hours, but volunteers are asked to meet the Wikimedia Foundation team at the hotel in Bethesda at about 7:15 a.m. (time to be finalized shortly) and to stay for the entire day, which ends at 4:30 p.m. Lunch will be provided. (The full schedule can be found here.)

The team is not necessarily looking for expert editors (though they are welcome), just people who can help novices who might get stuck when trying to do some basic things. If you've been an editor for at least 3 months, and have done at least 500 edits, you probably qualify.

If you're interested, please send John Broughton an email. If you might be interested, but would like further information, please post a note on his user talk page, so that he can respond there, and others can see what was asked.

Move from where?

Where was List of English words that may be spelled with an ash or an ethel moved from? You can't move a page by a cut-and-paste into a new article. Fences&Windows 01:56, 18 January 2010 (UTC)

I see you're getting around a redirect, the article was cut and pasted from http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=List_of_words_that_may_be_spelled_with_a_ligature&oldid=330714151, right? See WP:Cut and paste for why you shouldn't do this, you've used material without attributing the source. Fences&Windows 02:01, 18 January 2010 (UTC)
Also read WP:NOTDIC to see why this kind of material is not appropriate on Wikipedia. Wiktionary should have a place for it in an appendix. Fences&Windows 02:04, 18 January 2010 (UTC)

AfD nomination of Anarchism and anarcho-capitalism

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 Anarchism and anarcho-capitalism. 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/Anarchism and anarcho-capitalism (2nd nomination). 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) 01:13, 26 March 2010 (UTC)

Merch

I like the merchandise! It's nice to see someone describing George W. Bush (and not just Obama) as a socialist. I had to think about the IV:XX one for a moment. Tisane (talk) 10:12, 30 April 2010 (UTC)

Liberty Party (1840s)

Please don't insert personal commentary into that article based on modern standards of libertarianism, something which many of the members of the 19th-century party would not have been enthusiastic about, or might not have even understood very well. The core constituency of the party tended to be motivated more by purging the United States of sinfulness than by the idea of allowing every individual perfect freedom to go to hell if he so chose. If they had wanted to found the John Stuart Mill party, then they would have founded the John Stuart Mill party, but they didn't... AnonMoos (talk) 16:34, 29 August 2010 (UTC)

I have perused your 29 August 2010 edit of my previous edit, and cannot ascertain precisely what your issue was with my edit. At no point does my edit mention the classical liberal John Stuart Mill, nor does your edit indicate that the "core constituency" of the party wanted to "purg[e] the United States of sinfulness." The closest change you made to that effect was removing the word illiberal and replacing it with moralistic, a change I have no problem with, since the party, beginning in 1848, had become both more illiberal and moralistic.
By no means, therefore, was I inserting "personal commentary" or "modern standards of libertarianism" (emphasis added), the latter of which being more Rothbardian than Millian, anyway, despite my lack of reference to either. The party was never fully libertarian by modern standards, and insofar as it ever was libertarian, its libertarianism was much more inclined to a nineteenth-century standard. In other words, it was libertarian insofar as libertarianism overlaps with classical liberalism. Therefore, while I have no problem claiming on my personal website that it was was one of the first officially-organised libertarian parties in the united states, I would object to anyone claiming that it embodied "modern standards of libertarianism," as you call them.
I would say that any honest appraisal of the Liberty Party would have to note that the party, like all parties, had factions. As it turns out, the Chase faction was more Jeffersonian and libertarian-leaning than the Smith faction, which was more moralistic and tended to embody a weird mixture of liberalism and conservatism. The latter faction historically wanted the world to believe that it was the more radical faction, and that the former was not as concerned as the latter with the plight of the slave; but my own research, which I have done elsewhere, indicates that that view is highly biased and false. Since it was the latter faction that assumed control of the party after the bulk left it to form, along with Barnburners and others, the Free Soil Party, the party can honestly be said to have lost much of its libertarian spirit after 1848.

James Eric Davidson

Hi there. You contributed to an AFD discussion of this article back in 2008. The discussion ended in 'no consensus', but I think the subject is non-notable and have renominated it for deletion.

WikiProject C-SPAN?

Greetings fellow Wikipedia editor -

I am leaving you this note because I have reason to believe that you are interested in C-SPAN. (I may have made this assumption based on your C-SPAN user box, or perhaps for some other reason.) If this is not an interest of yours, please feel free to read no further and delete this message.

If you are in fact someone who is interested in C-SPAN, then let me put forward an idea that I have been kicking around for a while. What if we started a C-SPAN WikiProject?

The parameters of this (potential) project are up for discussion, but it could include some or all of the following (as well as things that may occur to you that have not occurred to me):

  • Creation, maintenance, and improvement of articles and lists directly related to C-SPAN and its programming.
  • Use of C-SPAN programming in citations for various topics
  • Inclusion of unique and targeted C-SPAN video links for various articles. (Doing this with respect for established guidelines at Wikipedia:External links.) (Example: If you are interested in the submarine USS Wyoming (SSBN-742), then having easy access to the eight hours of programming taped while a C-SPAN crew were guests on that submarine could also be of interest to you.)
  • Inclusion of (and possible further creation of) templated links such as {{C-SPAN|laurabush}}, that will easily take article readers to a link of all C-SPAN Video Library links for the person about whom the article is about.
  • What else?

I don't know exactly how far we may want to go, nor in what directions, but I do believe (as I have long noted on my user page) that C-SPAN and Wikipedia are both...

...fantastic vehicles for the free exchange of ideas and information in a non-sound-bite manner, and they both invite the participation of any parties (expert or amateur) who are interested in taking the time to absorb and/or contribute to the ideas and information offered. C-SPAN and Wikipedia go together like peanut butter and jelly, and I want to help give other Wiki users easy access to the great work that C-SPAN has done on a variety of topics.

Now, I should mention that I have never started a WikiProject before, and I do not know the best way to go about it. (Perhaps one of you do?) Let me offer one of my sandbox pages, User:KConWiki/sandbox/Wikiproject C-SPAN?, as a gathering area for comments until such time as we gather enough steam to start our own WikiProject page.

Thanks for reading this far, and I hope that you will give some consideration as to whether this is something we ought to attempt. Please feel free to pass this message on to others you know whom might be interested, and please let me know your thoughts and comments.

Speedy deletion nomination of Urban Tarzan

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Urban Tarzan requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article or image appears to be a clear copyright infringement. This article or image appears to be a direct copy from http://www.spike.com/shows/urban-tarzan (bottom) http://www.spike.com/episodes/b06f3m/urban-tarzan-an-actual-tiger-on-a-golf-course-season-1-ep-110 http://www.spike.com/shows/urban-tarzan/bios/urbantarzan. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If the external website or image belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text or image — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. If you are not the owner of the external website or image but have permission from that owner, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission. You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Bgwhite (talk) 06:45, 17 June 2013 (UTC)

I agree the article needs work. (In fact, I said so here|.) But, instead of speedily deleting it, I recommend that you alter the text so as to make it no longer a copyright-infringement issue. After all, I did put a good hour into putting that page together. I look forward to seeing what the article looks like when you've finished altering the text in order to ensure that the article does not infringe upon any copyright laws. Message me when you've finished revising it, so that I might check it out. :) Cheers, allixpeeke (talk) 20:36, 17 June 2013 (UTC)
Everything in the article was copyright-infringement. The show's description, UrbanTarzan's description and episode descriptions. The deleting admin thought the same way. It would take me longer than an hour to fix it. I do fix articles if a paragraph or two have problems, but not the entire article. It is up to you to write copyright free material, not anybody else. Bgwhite (talk) 20:54, 17 June 2013 (UTC)
Not everything in the article constituted a copyright infringement. Only three of the four main paragraphs were lifted from the show's website, and all three included citations. The first paragraph was entirely original, and even it included a citation, since it referenced a start date and time I found in an article. If creating blockquotes for the lifted material is not enough of a temporary fix (until such a time as future editors further improve the article), a different temporary fix would have been to delete the offending paragraphs and blurbs entirely, leaving intact the episode numbers, the episode titles, the episode air dates, the article's introductory paragraph, the production company info, the executive producers list, the starring list, the created-by credit, the show's title, the genre, the original channel, the original run, the country of origin, the state in which the show takes place, the language, the number of seasons and of episodes, the external links list, and the categories list—none of which would have violated copyright laws. Granted, the article would be a stub, but future editors could have improved that. It would have only taken me about ninety seconds to remove all copyright infringement, leaving to future editors a stable skeleton upon which they could flesh out a good article. I guess I'm just a little surprised that this "deleting admin" wanted to throw the baby out with the bathwater. Alas, nothing I can do about it, now. I'm on to other things.

Disambiguation link notification for July 29

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Legalization, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Picketing (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). 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.

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 11:23, 29 July 2013 (UTC)


Thank you, DPL bot, for the helpful suggestion. For whatever reason, picketing relocates to the disambiguation page picket, even though every item on said disambiguation page links to some article called "picket" except for "picketing (protest)." So, I went ahead back to the legalization page and simply made sure that "picketing" links to picketing (protest) therefrom. Again, my thanks to you, DPL bot, for the suggestion.

Disambiguation link notification for August 25

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited My So-Called Life, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Three Rivers (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). 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.

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 11:01, 25 August 2013 (UTC)


Thank you, DPL bot, for the helpful suggestion. As you noted, such links are "almost always unintended" (emphasis added); in this case, however, it was intended. You see, Three Rivers is a fictional suburb in the show My So-Called Life, and as of right now, there is no article for Three Rivers (My So-Called Life). Moreover, even if such an article were to be created, I don't anticipate it being much more than a stub. In fact, if you go to the Three Rivers page, which you correctly note is a disambiguation page, and scroll down to the "Other uses" section, you will see "Three Rivers, a fictional suburb in the 1994 show My So-Called Life." One can also learn, from reading the disambiguation page, that, in Pennsylvania, "Three Rivers" refers to the "confluence of the Allegheny River and Monongahela River to form the Ohio River." Since the show takes place in the fictional suburb of Three Rivers, Pennsylvania, it is likely that the reason the show's creators chose the name "Three Rivers" is in order to reference that area of Pennsylvania. That's why the link is useful to readers of the My So-Called Life article. At the same time, however, that info cannot be inserted into the My So-Called Life article because that would constitute original research, which, as I'm sure you know, is not allowed on Wikipedia. So, as you can see, DPL bot, that disambiguation link is actually quite necessary. I'm sure you understand. Cheers, allixpeeke (talk) 19:48, 25 August 2013 (UTC)
