I created a user box for AIO here Erwin Springer (talk) 02:24, 8 February 2009 (UTC)

Objections to evolution

Hi, AE.—The article Objections to evolution ends up being mostly a criticism of those objections, as described in its talk page. Would you mind helping to clean up the article? Jchthys (talk) 02:17, 13 February 2009 (UTC)

Then again, there's been significant discussion on the talk page, and it looks like the way it is written is the way it's going to have to be. Maybe you shouldn't worry about it. Jchthys (talk) 03:42, 13 February 2009 (UTC)
I'm not too good at things like that, but I hope it goes well! God bless, TheAE talk/sign 03:49, 13 February 2009 (UTC)

Good job!

Wow, you've been adding some great references to the Kirk Cameron article. I'm seriously impressed. Keep up the good work, and let me know if I can help! -- edi(talk) 04:10, 17 February 2009 (UTC)

Thanks! I really want to bring the article to GA standards, and the sourcing is a problem. There are still some sources I want to replace (like EverythingParentToday, WretchedRadio, ChristianWomenOnline, and so on), but it's coming along. You're free to help in any way you can, I'll probably be going really slowly. :) TheAE talk/sign 05:04, 17 February 2009 (UTC)
Don't worry, I'll be adding anything I can find. GA is a totally cool goal. I'm working on getting my hands on some stuff in hopes that it'll help. Keep your fingers crossed! :) -- edi(talk) 05:11, 17 February 2009 (UTC)


I'm sorry if I'm bringing up this too much, but what if, after a while, if the SE Wikipedia got more members, we went through with my proposal? We won't use a bot, lol. Any suggestions to improve it? Any way I can convince the community that the Wikicup won't be useless? I want to feel that self-satisfaction of starting something good. obentomusubi 20:35, 22 February 2009 (UTC)

Kirk Cameron

Hi. In your recent Edit Summary, you mentioned "hide unreliable source". I'd hate to nitpick, but the source doesn't even mention that Kirk and Chelsea met on Growing Pains. So completely apart from whether it's reliable, it just plain doesn't support the material. Just FYI. :-) Nightscream (talk) 00:54, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

Kirk Cameron: on hold

The article Kirk Cameron is on hold. View the talkpage for details. Thank you, great job and good luck! CarpetCrawler (talk) 22:13, 26 February 2009 (UTC)

Congratulations, the article has passed! See the talkpage for details. Very good job! CarpetCrawler (talk) 18:52, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

Woohoo!! Congratulations! You did a fantastic job improving this article and encouraging others to do the same. Keep up the good work! -- edi(talk) 20:20, 2 March 2009 (UTC)
Thank you both very much! I'm so excited about it. :) TheAE talk/sign 23:27, 2 March 2009 (UTC)
I fully agree 100%, you did a wonderful job! As I said in the review, articles that involve religion are usually very tricky and not neutral, it was refreshing seeing a neutral article! Wonderful work! CarpetCrawler (talk) 00:45, 3 March 2009 (UTC)


I see that you tried to start a wiki project for AIO here. Out of curiousity, what happened to the idea? Erwin Springer [talk] 22:37, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

Thanks... I can't believe I forgot to do that when I went over that silly article with a fine-toothed comb multiple times yesterday! I guess that's why it's all about teamwork, right? :) Also... just so you know... I'm watching your work on Kirk Cameron and I'm totally impressed. I'm really confident that you're going to get the GA. Everything looks fantastic to me at the moment, but please let me know if there's anything I can do to help! -- edi(talk) 22:06, 1 March 2009 (UTC)

What to do

About an editor who joined Wikipedia to insert conspiracy theories and immediately try to become an admin? and then sought to have me blocked for an edit that a sympathetic sysop told him was appropriate? Encouraging, rather than purging, such editors hurts the Wiki project. I will not claim to be a model editor (not yet) but I am not a recalcitrant loon. I want to discourage this editor, who seems to have no sense. Look at the editor's history...Jimintheatl (talk) 03:36, 15 March 2009 (UTC)

Happy April Fools!

April Fools Lolcats.png Happy April Fools' Day!
Hey, it's finally the day...! Some of you have been really anticipating it, and helping Wikipedia by preparing nonsense for the Main Page or doing other silly stuff. It's only 1 day out of 365, so us overstressed wikiholics should use the day to look at things a tad differently. ;) Have fun! JamieS93 01:58, 1 April 2009 (UTC)

Charles Spurgeon

I made some changes to the introduction to this article that revert some of your edits from 29 January here. You replaced Reformed Baptist with simply Baptist & you added "AND OTHER MENTAL ILLNESSES" to his depression. What? He was never diagnosed with depression in the first place (not many were in those days, but he had symptoms)- but I am wondering what other mental illnesses you are aware of Spurgeon having? Is this a joke or a mistake? I want to assume the best since you are an admin. Thanks.Brian0324 (talk) 13:47, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

Re: Email

Hmm, odd. I've had it enabled for months (and have received hundreds of emails during that time), so I'm not sure what's up with that. I fiddled around with it a bit, so try again. –Juliancolton | Talk 04:47, 5 April 2009 (UTC)

Hi AE, I was reverting the vandalism by I was a bit sloppy to catch's edit as well (I guess its sort of collateral damage). But since both terms are acceptable, I decided not to restore wording. Feel free to restore it if you want. Thanks John Sloan (view / chat) 19:19, 6 April 2009 (UTC)

National Bible Bee[1]

Hi, AE. Do you think you’d have time to collaborate with me on this article? (The bee is quite big—national, with a $100 000 top prize, so I don’t doubt that it will meet notability requirements.)Jchthys 01:19, 10 April 2009 (UTC)

OK, I moved my completed version of the article to the main namespace at National Bible Bee and added links to it from Bible bee (disambiguation) and Bible quiz. Tell me if you have any suggestions.Jchthys 21:02, 13 April 2009 (UTC)

Project:Film TaskForce: Christian Film Industry Movement

Hi, I've noticed that you've been working on several pages that have to do with the growing Christian film industry movement. I'm considering proposing the creation of a task force for WikiProject:Film that would focus on this topic (Christian films, festivals, schools, people, companies, etc.); would you be interested in joining such a task force if it were created? -- Filmcom (talk) 16:28, 16 April 2009 (UTC)

Hi, American Eagle. I made a little collection of ribbons for you that you can put on your userpage instead of the (IMHO ugly) templates.

The last ribbon is an award you haven’t given yourself yet: the Yeoman Editor, for 4000 edits and one year of service. Jchthys 17:05, 25 April 2009 (UTC)

Sorry for not replying sooner, I forgot. After thinking about this, I've decided to keep the old ones for now. Thanks anyway for the note. :D American Eagle (talk) 04:10, 15 May 2009 (UTC)

Christian films work group

Noticed you are the first signed member of the Christian films work group. Would you have any interest in maybe making a little statement in the May issue of the Christianity WikiProject newsletter regarding the new group in the "From the Members" section? I get tired of seeing my own comments there as much as anyone else does, I reckon. John Carter (talk) 13:53, 1 May 2009 (UTC)

I was basically just thinking of doing a little introduction of the Christian films group in the "From the Members" section of the template linked to above. I acknowledge the bloody thing can be a bit of pain to find stuff in, so if you want to add it below the template, I could ultimately put it in myself. But I do like the idea of letting the members here about the group from one of its members. John Carter (talk) 18:43, 1 May 2009 (UTC)

Well, it was actually for the Christianity WikiProject newsletter, not the Film project, so I had to adjust the opening a little. You can see it at Template:WikiProject Christianity/Outreach/May 2009, in the "From the Members" section. I hope it looks OK to you. John Carter (talk) 19:41, 1 May 2009 (UTC)

Even though it didn't pass, it had a nearly 2 to 1 ratio of support and I am quite encouraged by those results. I intend to review the support, oppose, and neutral !votes and see what I can do to address those concerns that were brought up and resubmit in a few months.

Lee Strobel: Former Atheist?

I believe you that it is claimed in a number of his books. However, that does not actually prove the assertion to be correct. A third party source is need. This is especially true when one takes into consideration that the "former atheist" claim is one of the most popular among apologetics and evangelists. Provide a source that is not related to Strobel in any way, shape, or form. Until then, the edit will be reverted. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:55, 19 May 2009 (UTC)
