Wayne Caparas[edit]

Hello, just letting you know that I've moved the article into your userspace so you can work on it a bit more, as it looks really good, it just needs some references. The article is now located at User:Ambercaparas/Wayne Caparas. Cheers. Steven Zhang The clock is ticking.... 14:36, 21 May 2011 (UTC)

Hi Steven! Whew... okay! I spent all day searching the web and digging through boxes of articles and I've covered every item you and other moderators have identified as needing citations, plus numerous other citations just because I found the documentation, so I think we're good to go! Please take a look, and even more please move the article back out to the main level so that my username doesn't show before the article name. Looks cheesy right now... as you know. ;-) Let me know asap okay? Cheers! --Ambercaparas (talk) 01:54, 22 May 2011 (UTC)

Adoption offer[edit]

{{Adoptoffer|Steven Zhang}}

Hi Amber. Have a look at my talk page, as I've left you a message, and let me know what you think. If you're happy for me to adopt you and teach you what I can about Wikipedia, add {{Adopted|Steven Zhang}} to your userpage. It's also a good idea to write a little bit about what you would like to edit on Wikipedia, and a little bit about your interests, so people know what you like doing. I've also noticed you sign posts with the template at the bottom of the edit window, you might find it better (and it is commonly done on Wikipedia) that after what you're writing is finished, to sign with 4 tildes at the end ~~~~, like this. Steven Zhang The clock is ticking.... 03:44, 22 May 2011 (UTC) Awesome! I'll do that now! I'm about to dash out to church but I'll be back online this evening! Cheers Wiki-papi! ;-) --Ambercaparas (talk) 16:23, 22 May 2011 (UTC)

No longer a wiki-orphan! ;-) --Ambercaparas (talk) 16:27, 22 May 2011 (UTC)

Refactoring talk page comments[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. Everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia. However, talk pages are meant to be a record of a discussion; deleting or editing legitimate comments, as you did at Talk:Wayne Caparas, is considered bad practice, even if you meant well. Even making spelling and grammatical corrections in others' comments is generally frowned upon, as it tends to irritate the users whose comments you are correcting. Take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Thank you. Elizium23 (talk) 22:06, 24 May 2011 (UTC)

Whoa, what happened here? While you are free to strike out or remove your own comments, removing other people's comments is a big no-no. Please talk to me if you feel you need to do something like this again. Any editor can discuss an article on it's talk page, and raise concerns they feel about the article. It's how Wikipedia works. Editors have the ability to make comments and give feedback on an article. If you have any further questions please let me know. Steven Zhang The clock is ticking.... 22:40, 24 May 2011 (UTC)

Hi Steven... I'm very upset with what I noticed today at the bottom of that talk page... so much that I sincerely want to give up. Here's what I wrote to Elizium23 who restored my deletion... please read it and counsel me... I wish I'd never started this. My father is an incredibly accomplished artist and he does not deserve to have reckless arrogant editors demeaning him or his art. Here's what I wrote:

Hi Elizium23, thanks for the note. How can an editor be allowed to make statements that directly demean the person in a biography article, and even insult IMDB.com as not being reliable? At least IMDB is verified by film producers and directors... while here we are allowing people with NO credentials to do the same. How does this rude editor get to leave demeaning remarks in relation to a live person on a talk page? What makes this person worthy of judging what is a "bit" part in a film? Or a CD not being worthy of notability? Those are ridiculous statements and should not be allowed to be made where the general public can read them. I want to be a Wikipedian, but not if I have to continually encounter arrogant envious people like this person. There are no "bit" parts in motion pictures performed by SAG actors. I could go on... but this is ridiculous, no? Who policies these arrogant editors that would demean the personality or IMDB.com? I know Wikipedia very well as a reader... and there are actors and musicians and CD's with far less notability than the article of question makes note of, all with reputable reference citations. What's the use when a hater can smear your work and the people I choose to write about? Just because I am related to the person does not allow someone to demean the content... If I can avoid COI and provide quality references what else can I do? I cannot be asked to meet the subjective standards of someone looking to hate on a person just because a family member started the article. Yes, it raises a red flag, but that's what the community is here for, to edit the work and ensure notability, not develop their own subjective definitions of notability. Otherwise, he should do that to 80% of the biography writers on Wikipedia. This cannot be allowed if we hope to grow Wikipedia with my generation and the next generation to come. Thank you for caring. --Ambercaparas (talk) 22:49, 24 May 2011 (UTC)

Editing as an IP address.[edit]

Whoa, logging out and editing as an IP, in the fashion you did, is a big no-no on Wikipedia. Also, editing as an IP exposes your privacy more, as opposed to using a pseudonym. That said, you edit with your real name, and if you wish to edit under a different name, you can get your account renamed. Let me know a user name you would like to edit under and I will have it arranged. Some of us edit under a pseudonym, while others (like myself) edit under their real name. It comes down to personal choice. But logging out to make edits in the way you did big no-no. Please dont do that again. Steven Zhang The clock is ticking.... 05:14, 25 May 2011 (UTC)

Wow... and here I thought I was doing the right thing, as two of my biggest critics only used their IP. Thanks again for the correction Steven... please change my Ambercaparas account to ZomaFabrice? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.52.24.137 (talk) 05:34, 25 May 2011 (UTC)--Ambercaparas (talk) 05:43, 25 May 2011 (UTC)

Sure, I will arrange for that to be done for you. Steven Zhang The clock is ticking.... 06:04, 25 May 2011 (UTC)

Thanks Steven... I probably would have been banned by now if it weren't for you. I can promise I learn from my mistakes and seldom repeat them. It will be good to have a clean slate! :-)

--Ambercaparas (talk) 06:31, 25 May 2011 (UTC)

Nah, you wouldn't get banned for something like that. It is an issue but you are new wo you have more leeway. Don't forget to use edit summaries :) Steven Zhang The clock is ticking.... 06:51, 25 May 2011 (UTC)

Thanks again Stephen... while I'm here, did you see my note about combining the footnotes? Sadly I couldn't figure it out. Is there a tutorial somewhere? Cheers! --Ambercaparas (talk) 14:56, 25 May 2011 (UTC)

Rename done. As for footnotes, there's no tutorial that im aware of, but its quite simple to do. Instead of just using <ref> in every reference, use <ref name="replace this with a good name for the reference eg nytimes"> for the first time you use a reference on a page, and then each time you use the same reference again on the page use <ref name="use the same name here that you used in the first ref, eg nytimes"/>. Does that make sense? If it doesn't, please let me know and I will give you a demonstration. Don't forget edit summaries, no matter how trivial :) Steven Zhang The clock is ticking.... 20:47, 25 May 2011 (UTC)

Thanks Steven! Glad to be Zoma from here on (that's one of the orphans I sponsor)... as for the footnotes, I think I get it now... THANKS... I'll go try it, and yes, I think I've been sure to note all summaries lately, but thanks for the reminder. I'll let you know if my footnote effort fails, but I don't think it can now. Cheers! --Ambercaparas (talk) 23:18, 25 May 2011 (UTC)

BTW-- is there a reason my signature and my login name still show as Amber rather than Zoma? --Ambercaparas (talk) 23:20, 25 May 2011 (UTC)

Have you logged out and back in again? That might clear it up. Elizium23 (talk) 23:25, 25 May 2011 (UTC)

Hey Elizium... I tried that twice, but WP is telling me there is no such username as Zomafabrice, but it's still letting me login with Ambercaparas Thanks! --Ambercaparas (talk) 00:44, 26 May 2011 (UTC)

The capitalization of your username is important. Login as ZomaFabrice , not Zomafabrice. Use the current password you use for this account, it will be the same, and after you've managed to login under ZomaFabrice, let me know, ok. Steven Zhang The clock is ticking.... 02:01, 26 May 2011 (UTC)

VOILA! Thanks Steven... you too Elizium... I wasn't capping the F. And as you see, I got the footnotes figured out, so I'm DONE with the WC article... until he does something bigger and better. :-) Onward and upward! Cheers! Amber aka --ZomaFabrice (talk) 03:12, 26 May 2011 (UTC)

OK, great. It's very important that you don't use the old account anymore, for any reason. OK? When you're ready, have a look over User:Steven Zhang/Adoption/Permissions and let me know when you have read it allon my talk page. At the same time, let me know what else you'd like to do on Wikipedia (write articles, resolve disputes, fight vandalism) etc and also your interests outside Wikipedia. Its important we find what you would like to do on Wikipedia aside from editing your dads article. While we all start editing in one way or another, but what we do after that defines us an editor. Let me know, ok. On my talk page. Think about it carefully, at the same time look over that lesson, ok? Steven Zhang The clock is ticking.... 05:17, 26 May 2011 (UTC)

Hi there[edit]

Hey, how are things? I notice you've been off wiki for a bit. Feel free to pop me a message when you come back, OK? Steven Zhang The clock is ticking.... 00:15, 15 June 2011 (UTC)

Hey Steven! Good to hear from you. Crazy how time flies... I have so much I want to contribute to WP and thought for sure I'd be back in here tinkering around by now but my music work caught up on me and before I knew it I was back into auditions and performances and could hardly find time to keep up with my email and blog, but I promise I'm going to be back strong soon. Right now I'm prepping for my American Idol audition on the 28th, so say a prayer for me if you would. I was a Hollywood finalist in 2010 but I believe my faith got my cut by Ellen deGeneres's influence on the final selections, so now that she's gone and Simon too I think my chances to make it to the top 24 are pretty strong this year. I guess we'll see. So after the 28th if the pick me up again I'll have 2 more rounds and then will have the entire Fall off just to prepare for next season which starts in January, so I'm sure I'll be able to get back on track here in WP. I want to be a professional writer almost as much as I want to be a professional singer, so I'm hoping to make both a reality. :-) Thanks for checking in with me... I'll be sure to let you know how it goes after my audition. Cheers! ~ Amber --ZomaFabrice (talk) 06:20, 16 June 2011 (UTC)
