License tagging for Image:Lou Gehrig best 800.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Lou Gehrig best 800.jpg. Wikipedia gets hundreds 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:Image legality questions. 04:29, 29 March 2006 (UTC)

Sybil Ludington[edit]

Hey, how ya doin? I noticed you added some pics to the Sybil Ludington page, I have a hunch you live in that area. I myself grew up about a quarter-mile from her grave (which is partly why I did some work on the article). How bout you?


Sorry for the delay in responding to your message, but you didn't leave a link and I had to reply to my own talk page. I don't live in the area, but I visit Putnam County once in a while. I like to take pictures in the area. If you visit the articles for Carmel and Patterson, you will see more of my pictures. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Anthony22 (talkcontribs)

Grave images[edit]

Hi, thanks for donating the images. I don't think it's really appropriate to add images of family graves to living people, I moved the De Niro one to his father's article Robert De Niro, Sr.. Arniep 00:29, 5 May 2006 (UTC)

Travels[edit]

You going by the Putname County cemeteries any time soon? --evrik 14:44, 11 July 2006 (UTC) We got a photo of the grave we needed. Thanks for your offer! --evrik 17:11, 24 July 2006 (UTC)

JFK[edit]

Hi, I actually confirmed your info right here on WP, which I should have done before reverting your edit. My only defense is that I saw an unsourced assertion in an article that is a frequent target for vandalism. Subtle vandalisms which add false info to an article are particularly dangerous because they can damage WP's credibility. I already replaced your material; sorry if I caused you any concern : ) Doc Tropics Message in a bottle 01:36, 23 November 2006 (UTC)

Conde Nast headstone[edit]

Sorry, I disagree; find a photograph of the man, not his headstone. Frankly, it could be any Nast; there's no name on it confirming him. In any case, it's trivial. This isn't a dead site for fans, though I love gravestones and graveyards as much as the next guy. I really don't think a gravestone pic belongs in an encyclopaedia article, even if you have posted many before. Frankly, such an image isn't important unless (a) the gravesite is extraordinary and of wide interest (ie architecturally, like the tomb of Warren G. Harding) or (b) it is being used to illustrate the posthumous devotion of fans, ie Oscar Wilde or the lead singer of the Doors.Mowens35 01:38, 4 January 2007 (UTC)

Babe Ruth headstone[edit]

I removed the photo of the Babe Ruth headstone from that article for reasons similar to those cited by Mowens35 (above). Frankly, the photo does not add any value to the article: it is not architecturally or stylistically unique and doesn't say anything about Babe Ruth himself. To quote Mowens35: "I really don't think a gravestone pic belongs in an encyclopaedia article, even if you have posted many before." Sorry to be so blunt, Oscar 14:08, 4 January 2007 (UTC)

Gravestone Fetish?[edit]

Hey Anthony22. I have to agree with Mowens35 and Oscar, all the grave pictures are a bit much. I was looking at the Gate of Heaven Cemetery page because most of my dead family members are buried there and you had added gravestone pictures too all of the famous people listed there. I then checked out what your other contributions were and it seems that you've done this to a lot of people. The point of an article is to talk about what made the person famous and why they are important. A headstone doesn't have to do with their life unless in the words of Mowens35, " A) the gravesite is extraordinary and of wide interest (i.e. architecturally, like the tomb of Warren G. Harding) or B) it is being used to illustrate the posthumous devotion of fans (i.e. Oscar Wilde or the Jim Morrison)" There's no need for pictures of gravestones on people who don't have famous gravesites. It's kinda creepy to have pictures of gravestones on people's pages when there aren't any pictures of them when they were living. I think from now on in the future, you probably shouldn't put up all of those pictures. I can see you live in Westchester and you like to take pictures of other things in Westchester. So why don't you continue to do that instead of taking anymore gravestone pictures. I won't remove the pictures that are already up. But if an Admin came along and saw the pictures, they might remove them because 1) they don't enhance the article or add to the understanding of the person 2) you don't need them for most people 3) It's kinda weird. I hope you understand. Hdog13 04:52, 15 April 2007 (UTC)

Iona Preperatory School[edit]

No, I did clean it up. The wording was not neutral at all, and, more importantly, it was copied straight from the school's website. Unless the school relicenses the text on their website under the GFDL, it should be removed anyway. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Shanel (talkcontribs) 00:23, 1 February 2007 (UTC).

The text from the school's website will have to go; it's a copyright violation. But, if you wrote the text about the football team yourself, that can stay. I thought that perhaps it was copied from an offline source or was on the school website at some point in time (as some copyvios are); my apologies.--§hanel 00:46, 1 February 2007 (UTC)

Michael Jordan photo[edit]

Please see WP:Fair use. Judging by your edit history you need to familiarize yourself with it. No worries though, I made a lot of mistakes when I first started up as does everybody. Quadzilla99 02:26, 23 February 2007 (UTC)

To clarify, that image is (most likely) copyrighted by the publisher of the book, so the source and copyright need to be identified as such. This would mean it could only be used under a claim of fair use, but as Quadzilla mentioned, there are many restrictions to the use of fair use images. --PS2pcGAMER (talk) 02:29, 23 February 2007 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with Image:Michael_Jordan_202.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Michael_Jordan_202.jpg. The image has been identified as not specifying the copyright status of the image, which is required by Wikipedia's policy on images. If you don't indicate the copyright status of the image on the image's description page, using an appropriate copyright tag, it may be deleted some time in the next seven days. If you have uploaded other images, please verify that you have provided copyright information for them as well.

Fordham[edit]

I've been on the staff and written histories of aspects of Fordham. The address of Fordham for purposes of the postal service, taxes, real estate records, etc., is Fordham Road. The Ram plaque is on the "main drive" in from the Fordham Road gate. The records for all Fordham-related issues are under "fordham Road." The provincial's office was Fordham Road, and the main drive from Fordham Road leads to the front door oif the administration buildings. The entrance picture was originally for Fordham Hospital, now gone (which is where the parking lots now are). The fact that drivers to the school use that lot does not make it the official main entrance.HarvardOxon 02:41, 1 March 2007 (UTC)

Peter Revson[edit]

Hi Anthony. Thanks for taking the trouble to add the picture of Peter Revson. Unfortunately the copyright for that picture still belongs to the photographer who took it, or possibly the magazine who may have bought the rights from him/her. Scanning the picture in does not constitute creating a new image, but copying an existing one. The GFDL license is therefore not appropriate as the rights to the picture are not yours to release. See Wikipedia:Copyrights#Image_guidelines. 4u1e 07:33, 8 March 2007 (UTC)

Image tagging[edit]

Please correct the license template you have used for all the images that you have scanned. The copyright belongs to the photographer/publisher, not you, so you don't have the rights to release it under GFDL. You have been warned before about this. Please cease uploading new images until your previous uploads have been corrected. If they aren't fixed, the images are subject to deletion. If you have any questions, leave a message for me on my talk page. Thanks and have a good day. --PS2pcGAMER (talk) 07:52, 8 March 2007 (UTC)

Image:01 Patterson grave.JPG[edit]

Hi! I was preparing to move Image:01 Patterson grave.JPG to Wikimedia Commons so it can be used on other Wikimedia projects, but there is conflicting license information on the image page. You state that you release it under GFDL, but farther down you also state that you place it in the public domain. You can't do both as the concepts are mutually exclusive. Please remove one or the other of the license tags, and if you feel up to it, you can also move the image to the Commons so other projects can use it. If you don't move it, someone else will get around to it. --Darkwind (talk) 06:18, 30 September 2007 (UTC)

Observation: on Flegenheimer headstone image 'talk page'[edit]

This image shows small pebels/rocks on the headstone, three on the left (as well as some fallen into the grass) and one on the right. This is a Jewish custom when visiting a gravesite; it suggests more than one person linked to them personally had been to the grave within a year of the photograph's date.

Floyd Patterson Pic[edit]

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Floyd_Patterson#Photograph_of_grave_of_Floyd_Patterson

Hello, the pic is still there, it is your original, on floyd's talk page you said many things are done wrong on wikipedia? LOL, welcome to the club. I have an account with over 2000 edits(in few months), there is even some talk on my talk page requesting my assistance and to apply for administratorship, i say never, not for any money, dont waste your life here, build your own site. I did not touch that account since April. Way too many people have been suspended here for being somebody they are not, or tried to help. Check wikipedia-watch.org site, will tell you more. But that does not mean you should not correct mistakes. And there are tons of them here. Hopefully some day there will be new wikipedia leadership, i'd do so much to change things here, it's a jungle!
As far as Floyd goes, he should be remembered as a great champion, we do not have many gentlemen left in boxing these days.

For your info...

Floyd Patterson who became champion in 1956 at 21 & 10 months, (Patterson was originally trying for a light heavyweight title but after marciano's retirement was moved to heavyweight division with high #5 rating on may 2 1956), boxers like willie pep, bobbo olson and patterson stood for some culture/ a boxer should be a gentleman in and out of ring. IN their lifes they have proven it.

But it goes to show you that Floyd waited for Rocky's retirement, he simply did not want to be moved to the heavyweight division.

Laters amigo.


Image copyright problem with Image:CC Mall Walk.JPG[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Thank you for uploading Image:CC Mall Walk.JPG. However, it currently is missing information on its copyright status. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously.

License tagging for Image:New Roc City NR.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:New Roc City NR.jpg. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information; to add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia.

For help in choosing the correct tag, or for any other questions, leave a message on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 17:11, 17 December 2007 (UTC)

Bob Marshall (wilderness activist)[edit]

Hi, Anthony, thanks for getting in touch. Your encounter with the camera Nazis sounds like what happened to me when I visited the British Library in London with my digital cam in hand; all I wanted was a picture of the only surviving manuscript of Beowulf, is that so much to ask? They kindly held my camera until I was ready to leave, sheesh.

Anyway, I'm readying Marshall's article for WP:GAN and hopefully WP:FAC, which is kind of a big deal, so that's why I'm particularly anal about things at the moment. The reason why the information about Marshall's burial is mentioned in past tense is so it can match with the rest of the section; to suddenly switch it to "Bob Marshall is buried" is grammatically awkward and incorrect. Although it is interesting and noteworthy that he is buried with the rest of his family, including one sister who eerily died at the same young age as he did, I think it's more important to stick to the established tense and note that he was buried next to his parents; what happened after, in present tense, doesn't exactly fit. I hope you don't mind me reverting back, and I do appreciate the input, but I want only the best for this article and for Marshall's legacy, nitpicky grammar and all. :) Take care and better luck visiting other historic cemeteries, María (habla conmigo) 23:44, 14 March 2008 (UTC)

Ferncliff Cemetery and Aaliyah[edit]

I see no problem with Aaliyah being listed, as are the other names of famous persons, but if you started listing all "private rooms" the article would be flooded. Someone that is interested in finding the location can get a list at the office. It is not pertinent where you placed it. Doctalk 07:42, 27 March 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Image:Jean harris 100.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg
A tag has been placed on Image:Jean harris 100.jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section I9 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the image appears to be a blatant copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted images or text borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on [[ Talk:Image:Jean harris 100.jpg|the talk page]] explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Saint Paul's Church National Historic Site pic: Thanks![edit]

Thanks so much for photographing and uploading your pic for Saint Paul's Church National Historic Site. I don't know why exactly, but no one else has been able to get there, and it has been a notable gap in photo coverage of historic sites in NYS. If you have another pic or two from other angles, or inside, I would love to see those added, too.

If you're not aware, there's a List of NHLs in NY which is very nearly complete in terms of photos, and there's List of Registered Historic Places in Westchester County, New York, which could use more additions. Thanks again, keep up the good work! doncram (talk) 21:01, 10 August 2008 (UTC)

A photo you took in 2006[edit]

Anthony, I have to delete the photo you took of the lake at the Kensico Cemetery, because "lake.jpg" is too generic a filename, and other people have uploaded completely different lake photos.

FYI:cheerleader image[edit]

Hi, Anthony22. I have some misgivings about the publication of your latest cheerleader photo, and I've asked for advice at Wikipedia:Biographies of living persons/Noticeboard#Advice please: Personally identifiable image of teenage girl. --Orlady (talk) 16:28, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

No point in deleting the image -- unless and until someone more knowledgable than either of us says it needs to go. I posted on the noticeboard in hopes of getting some advice on the regarding policy on that kind of image, because I know that Wikimedia has sensitivities about stuff like that. I think it's probably OK, since the guideline at Commons seems to allow for photos taken in a public place, as long as the photos aren't uncomplimentary of the subject. --Orlady (talk) 00:13, 17 February 2009 (UTC)

Find a Grave[edit]

Hi. I'd noticed you have added some to Find A Grave to some articles. That's perfectly fine, but I would like to encourage you to use the template for the site. This gives us consistent display of the site and also allows us to track which articles have links. If you would when you add the link, use this: {{findagrave|GrID}}. For Ed Gein, for instance, it would look like this: {{findagrave|089170}}. The grave ID number is just after the "GRid=" in the link. You don't have to put anything else, it's all done by the template. Thanks so much. Wildhartlivie (talk) 21:56, 7 April 2009 (UTC)

Re: Tagging of Article on Iona Prep[edit]

Hello. I appreciate that you've added all the information to the article, but there are problems with it. An encyclopedia actually *can* cover too much information on one thing. What has happened on Iona's page is that there's paragraphs upon paragraphs on the football history. But it's not an article about Iona Prep Football. It's an article about the school. The amount of information on the football program dwarfs the rest of the article.

There's a horribly uneven slant towards their football teams. There's barely a passive mention of any of the other sports. The football sections are too long and contain way too much information. For example, the scores of every game in the seasons covered and in depth analyses is absolutely not necessary, and one could argue that it violates WP:ENC. The sections are written like essays to promote the school's program. The football section should be reduced to a few shorter paragraphs that mention the school's football history. The paragraphs also use sentences like "Tyrae Woodson-Samuels and Jeff Mack spearheaded one of the most prolific offenses in the history of the CHSFL as Iona Prep steamrollered undefeated through 12 consecutive games.", which uses words that only make the history sound nicer and makes the article look pretty (bolded), and even uses a peacock term (which is italicized). I believe that the football sections need to be completely rewritten so that they're entirely neutral and are completely encyclopedic.

I understand that you don't feel qualified to add history on the other sections, that's why I added the tags, so that other editors could add such information. You're not the only editor that frequents the page, I'm sure.  Acro 17:09, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

re: Photograph of Bob Marshall burial site[edit]

I'm sorry that you disapprove of my previous edit in which I removed File:Bob Marshall Burial Site 1000.jpg from Bob Marshall (wilderness activist), but may I remind you to assume good faith? My edit was not vandalism, nor was it in any way intended as malicious. I admit that I did not consider the technical difficulties that you may have had in obtaining such an image; rather, I was concerned with its lack of aesthetic appeal in an article that is already sufficiently illustrated. I fail to see why two images are required to illustrate Marshall's final resting place, when most biographies rarely have one. While removing this image, I kept the one of his tombstone (obviously the most important of the two), and added a free image of Marshall himself elsewhere in the article. With both images in the "Later efforts and sudden death" section, it looks crowded. The main reason for its removal, however, is that the image is incredibly dark, practically covered in shadow, and its subject only becomes clear when one clicks on it. Even then it's very difficult to read what's on the tombstones. In short, I question its ability to enhance the article or add to the understanding of the subject matter, which is what images should do.

As you can see, my edit was not "indiscriminate"; quite the opposite. It would have been impossible for me to explain my reasons for removing the image in an edit summary, which is why I used the benign term "cleaning up pictures" instead. I still don't believe it warrants inclusion in the article, which has obtained Featured Article status and must therefore maintain a high quality. Whether it remains or not, the image is included at the Commons, where any Wikipedia project may find and use it. Your work remains. I hope you reconsider the addition of this particular image, but either way thank you for contacting me with your concerns. María (habla conmigo) 12:59, 28 October 2009 (UTC)

Thank you for your reply, Anthony. I'm aware of a photographer's inability to change the circumstances of the scene they're photographing, and I didn't mean my above comments to insult your abilities as a photographer, so please don't take this personally. I'm commenting on the image, not you. As it is, the image is difficult to make out and therefore does not add to the article. As for the newest addition, I found it on the Forest Service's website, but I'm fairly sure it was included in Glover's biography. There are tons of photos I've found via searches that I would love to include in articles, as well, but copyright is always an issue, I agree. María (habla conmigo) 13:35, 28 October 2009 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for File:Bust of Jacob K. Javits at Javits Convention Center.jpg[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Bust of Jacob K. Javits at Javits Convention Center.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file 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 file 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 'file' 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 "File" 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. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 12:34, 30 December 2009 (UTC)

March 2010[edit]

Information.svg Thank you for your contributions. Please remember to mark your edits, such as your recent edits to Marilyn Monroe, as "minor" only if they truly are minor edits. In accordance with Help:Minor edit, a minor edit is one that the editor believes requires no review and could never be the subject of a dispute. Minor edits consist of things such as typographical corrections, formatting changes, or rearrangement of text without modification of content. Additionally, the reversion of clear-cut vandalism and test edits may be labeled "minor". Thank you. Gyrofrog (talk) 05:25, 15 March 2010 (UTC)

You are now a Reviewer[edit]

Wikipedia Reviewer.svg

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, is currently undergoing a two-month trial scheduled to end 15 August 2010.

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under pending changes. Pending changes is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial. The list of articles with pending changes awaiting review is located at Special:OldReviewedPages.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles (talk) 04:58, 20 June 2010 (UTC)


can you helpout?[edit]

You seem to know alot about the Westchester area. And more specifically New Rochelle. There have been many many articles about new rochelle that have been deleted by a editor on this site and these deletions do not appear to be productive or fair. I would say that as many as 30 articles about new ro have been deleted and i think as many as 30 more about westchester have as well (by the same editor). Would you have any ability to help replace these articles as they are historic and/or factual and relevant to the city at its current time? It would be nice to fix this so that the data can be available for the community at large. Here are just some of the articles:


• SHELDRAKE LAKE • HUGUENOT YACHT CLUB • DICKERMANS POND • GOOSE ISLAND • PINE ISLAND • TRAVERS ISLAND • DAVENPORT'S NECK • FIVE ISLANDS PARK • BEECHMONT • BAYBERRY • BONNIECREST • RESIDENCE PARK • HUDSON PARK • PEA ISLAND • ECHO BAY • ECHO ISLAND • HARRISON ISLAND • TANK ISLAND • BETH EL TEMPLE • WARD ACRES • NATHAN BARRETT • DAVENPORT NECK • NEW ROCHELLE TENNIS CLUB • NEW ROCHELLE ROWING CLUB • NEW ROCHELLE PUBLIC LIBRARY • PREMIUM POINT, NEW ROCHELLE • NEW ROCHELLE BLACKBERRY (LAWTON BLACKBERRY) • ISAAC E YOUNG MIDDLE SCHOOL • AVALON ON THE SOUND • AVALON ON THE SOUND EAST • THE KAUFMAN BUILDING • COOPERS CORNERS • MIDDLETOWN • LATHERS WOODS • WINYAH • PREMIUM POINT • TITUS MILL POND • CARPENTERS POND

Westchester articles that are gone include:

• LAWRENCE PARK (BRONXVILLE) • WAYSIDE COTTAGE (SCARSDALE) • BRONXVILLE POST OFFICE • MOUNT VERNON POST OFFICE • HARRISON POST OFFICE • MASTERSON DUSENBERRY HOUSE (BRONXVILLE) • BRONXVILLE WOMENS CLUB • BRONX RIVER PARKWAY RESERVATION • Bedford Road Historic District • Bedford Village Historic District • MARBLE SCHOOLHOUSE (EASTCHESTER) • JOHN STEVENS HOUSE (MOUNT VERNON) • BOLTON PRIORY (PELHAM MANOR) • EDGEWOOD HOUSE (PELHAM MANOR) • PELHAMDALE (PELHAM MANOR) • BAR BUILDING (WHITE PLAINS)

Here are some articles that have been substantially detracted from with unnecessary removal of content:

• PELHAM ISLANDS • GLEN ISLAND • BAR BUILDING (WHITE PLAINS) • NEPTUNE ISLAND • WILDCLIFF • LELAND CASTLE • NEW ROCHELLE POST OFFICE • PIONEER BUILDING (NEW ROCHELLE) • THOMAS PAINE COTTAGE • DAVENPORT HOUSE • TRINITY ST.PAULS EPISCOPALIAN CHURCH (NEW RO) • FIRST PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH AND LEWIS PINTARD HOUSE (NEW RO) • NEW ROC CITY

Maybe you can help see whatsup with all this deletion and Bing.com offers a glimpse into the missing articles just by searching new rochelle and also newrochellenews.info has alot of reference material.

Find A Grave links and "minor" edits[edit]

Hello. Please stop adding links to the site Find A Grave. This site has repeatedly been determined to fail both WP:RS and WP:EL criteria and should not be added. You seem to be doing it a lot, so I thought I should let you know.

We have had problems with people from the site Find A Grave coming here and purposefully adding their site everywhere. Many editors see it as a form of mass spamming.

Furthermore, please stop putting the m for minor tag on your edits when you are adding content. That's not what the tag is for. Using it that way is highly misleading. Some people automatically hide all minor edits from their watchlist, and by marking your non-minor edits as minor you are making it difficult for people to see what you are doing. I hope that was only a mistake. DreamGuy (talk) 19:50, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

Unfortunately, I don't know the date of construction of any mausoleums. I would imagine that the cemetery office would have knowledge and access to this information. I have uploaded many images of mausoleums to Wikipedia, and this is the first time that I've ever had a request for a date of construction. I am fairly certain that the Wilson mausoleum predates 1990. Anthony22 (talk) 21:31, 8 February 2012 (UTC)
I would assume it must be close to his death. I thought you might know a date. No problem, we'll just say 1972. And you may well get asked for more in future as all free images are being moved off of en-Wiki, hopefully by the end of 2013 - and commons will need to know the date of modern 3D artwork constructions.  Ronhjones  (Talk) 21:39, 8 February 2012 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Dutchess County Fair at Rhinebeck, NY, August 2012.jpg[edit]

A tag has been placed on File:Dutchess County Fair at Rhinebeck, NY, August 2012.jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the image is an unused redundant copy (all pixels the same or scaled down) of an image in the same file format, which is on Wikipedia (not on Commons), and all inward links have been updated.

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but 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 yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Yvette Vickers[edit]

I know it's in the source but what is your personal reasoning behind including the street name of where Vickers lived? I'm of two minds about being so specific. Dismas|(talk) 13:23, 18 March 2013 (UTC)

I see no harm in being specific. The location of Marilyn Monroe's death and Lou Gehrig's death is shown in their respective Wikipedia articles. I became interested in Yvette Vickers after I just watched Attack of the 50 Foot Woman on Turner Classic Movies. She was a good actress and a hot Playboy Playmate. It's really sad how she died.

Anthony Judging by the comments at the top of the page, I thought that some drastic editing was needed. However you obviously hold this page of high value so I won't get in your way. I agree though with the criticism that the football information is too long and it does read like an advertisement for the school.

Audrey Meadows[edit]

Audrey was born in NYC, unlike her elder sister, Jayne, as per this footnote, gleaned from Ancestry.com:

Audrey Cotter was born in New York City in 1922, not in China as has been commonly stated. A 1921 passenger list shows the family entering the United States from China via Vancouver (S.S. Empress of Russia arriving at Vancouver from Shanghai, July 10, 1921). A 1927 passenger list shows Audrey's birthplace as New York (S.S. Olympic, arriving at New York from Southamption, May 3, 1927). The 1930 U.S. census, listing the family in Providence, Rhode Island, also shows Audrey's birthplace as New York City and her age as 8 years old in April 1930, which also confirms 1922 as her year of birth.

Yours, Quis separabit? 16:03, 16 May 2013 (UTC)

    • Anthony: Of course, discrepancies arrive and sometimes are not easy to settle which leads to footnotes or endnotes detailing conflicting information. I certainly do not go by Find-a-Grave as a rule, however U.S. government records: census, travel manifests/itineraries, Social Security Death Index records, etc. are generally reliable, and incomparably superior to IMDb, Find-a-Grave, or hearsay.

Notables MUST have sources[edit]

Whether its this edit for Cassville, Missouri or this one for List of people from Newark, New Jersey, WP:LISTPEOPLE requires that notables added to a list within an article must include a reliable and verifiable source establishing a connection between the person and the place. If you knew that the person was connected to the place based on the source, simply add the same source to the article. If there was no source in the original article for the person, adding the individual to the article risks propogating incorrect information. Please feel free to contact me on my talk page with any questions. Alansohn (talk) 15:27, 17 July 2013 (UTC)

This edit to the article for Wall Township, New Jersey added Gil McDougald as a notable, with no source provided. Per WP:LISTPEOPLE, all entired in such lists must have articles and must have reliable and verifiable sources establishing their connection to the place. If you knew that the person was connected to the place based on a source, simply add the same source to the article. If there was no source for the person that you used as the basis for the addition, adding the individual to the article risks propogating incorrect information. Please ensure that all future edits adding notables to lists in articles include the required sources and feel free to contact me here or on my talk page with any questions about how to add the required sources.

Hey Anthony, regarding this edit: they're helpful changes, but I see that the file itself refers to the player as Abdul-Jabbar, not Alcindor. I only bring this up because captioning the photo as Alcindor is confusing to me when the file itself states otherwise. I realize that this was the same year that he changed his name, but just wanted to point it out. Best, Airplaneman 20:11, 14 October 2015 (UTC)

You've been here long enough and I know you know better than to try to add something unsourced like this. -- WV 23:19, 20 February 2016 (UTC)

Your latest edit[edit]

At the Jackie Kennedy article, regarding your latest edit here, I'm going to request you revert it back. There is currently a discussion on the talk page about the usage of last names per MOS. You can take part there, but really shouldn't change anything in deference to the discussion and possible consensus reached there. Thanks. -- WV 01:37, 22 February 2016 (UTC)

Fine Arts[edit]

You are incorrect in regard to this edit. When McCartney was college age, Fine Arts was a common major, especially for women. Please replace it in the article. -- WV 15:05, 22 February 2016 (UTC)

If you wish you had a dollar every time you may not make as much as you think. Are you sure it needs a capital every time, as opposed to when it is part of a company name or at the start of a sentence? Telephone doesn't have a capital all the time, for instance.

Edits like this one and this one you made are unacceptable. Do keep your POV out of your edits. Flyer22 Reborn (talk) 05:50, 28 June 2016 (UTC)

Hi, @Flyer22 Reborn: I was here to post something and just saw your comment. For what it's worth, I might have made the same changes for encyclopedic tone. It seems that often the more brief and dispassionate the better. And the article makes it quite clear that she committed and recommitted crimes, which caused her to be on the sex registry and serve jail time. I don't know anything about the addition of unsourced material, but of course, I agree that should not be done.--CaroleHenson (talk) 00:07, 9 October 2016 (UTC)
CaroleHenson, were you agreeing with the reverts to Anthony22's wording? If not, it seems you read the above links backwards. Changing "Fualaau" to "her child lover" and adding "for the illicit liaison" is not encyclopedic wording. It is POV wording. And Anthony22 has made other problematic edits to that article in the past, and those were reverted. SarekOfVulcan was right to revert. Flyer22 Reborn (talk) 22:25, 20 October 2016 (UTC)
Hi, @Flyer22 Reborn:, Yes, I am agreeing to the reverts to Anthony22's wording - and are consistent with my experience working on the Death of JonBenét Ramsey article. Sorry that I wasn't clearer. I know that there are cupcakes that follow, but it was a way to smooth over the back-and-forth that we've had on the article. When I saw good edits, I pointed it out.--CaroleHenson (talk) 22:44, 20 October 2016 (UTC)

Death of JonBenét Ramsey[edit]

Great job editing, polishing, and clarifying items in the Death of JonBenét Ramsey article!--CaroleHenson (talk)

Again, great editing! I reverted the last edit because it was an attempt to limit close paraphrasing. Sometimes the facts in the case made that job pretty tough (only so many ways to word some sentences).--CaroleHenson (talk) 00:04, 9 October 2016 (UTC)

Kennedy assassination[edit]

I noticed you changed the wording on the Kennedy assassination page (talking about Oswald) from "mortally wounded" to "mortally shot". I'd like you to reconsider that change for a couple of reasons: 1) "Mortally wounded" is a much more common phrase-Google turns up 575,000 results for it, while "mortally shot" brings up less than 8,000, and it drops to less than 7000 if you exclude "mortally wounded" from the search for "mortally shot". 2) A mortal wound, is, by definition, a fatal one, regardless of how it happened. In this case, "mortally" is a synonym for "fatally", and I don't think anyone would argue that "fatally wounded" implies the chance of recovery. Almostfm (talk) 21:05, 16 November 2016 (UTC)

Seeing color[edit]

I have no idea why the cop gets "black" assigned to his name and function. It is entirely possible that "white" is the transparent normal in Mountain Brook, an overwhelmingly white community, and the richest in Alabama--but perhaps you could consider adding "white" to every incidence of a white person in our article. Or are you inserting that term to suggest something? Thank you. Drmies (talk) 02:42, 26 December 2016 (UTC)

Matthew Shepard[edit]

Hi Anthony22. Thanks for your series of thoughtful edits. You'll notice I undid or modified a small number of the changes you made, and several of my edit summaries might be less than fully illuminating. I'm limited to typing with one hand at present, so long summaries are challenging. If anything isn't clear, please don't hesitate to ask. Hope you have a happy new year.

Atomic bombs in Truman's article lead[edit]

Hi Anthony22, regarding your edit today of Harry S. Truman's article, mentioning the bombs in the lead: I don't know if you saw there was a recent discussion of that subject on the talk page under "Recent edits." Personally, I agree it should be there, and I wouldn't remove it, but it might need further discussion. However, I wouldn't say Truman is "best remembered for..." because that is subjective. I actually remember him best for being a fellow Missourian. RM2KX (talk) 00:57, 13 March 2017 (UTC)

Now I see that the bombs are mentioned already in the fourth paragraph of the lead, and again in the text of the main article. So now I'm thinking it may be redundant in the first paragraph. Actually I'm thinking the whole lead is way too long, so whatever you want to do is appropriate enough, I guess. RM2KX (talk) 01:04, 13 March 2017 (UTC)

Joe Kennedy's plane[edit]

Mistaken "changed present tense to past tense" edits[edit]

Hello. You have been making a series of grammar changes to articles like John McCain and Ted Kennedy and Bill Gates under the edit summary "changed present tense to past tense", all of which are incorrectly motivated. Instances include this edit and this edit and the edit. To take the first one as an example, there is nothing wrong with the sentence "He became a naval aviator, flying ground-attack aircraft from aircraft carriers". The "flying" in it is not present tense. Like -ing verbs in general, it is tenseless – it gets its tense from the main verb of the phrase or sentence. Thus, "she was flying", "she is flying", and "she will be flying" are all valid uses of "flying" in three different tenses. In this case, the main verb of the sentence is "became", which makes the whole sentence past tense including the "flying". (If you are really in doubt about this point, consult some sites on English usage such as this one.) Therefore there is no need to change the sentence as you did to "He became a naval aviator and flew ground-attack aircraft from aircraft carriers". While there is nothing wrong with that sentence per se, it is a bit duller and more verbose and lends to more repetitive prose overall, whereas the use of "flying" in the original helps the prose have a more varied style. Thus these changes of yours are ill-advised. Thanks ... Wasted Time R (talk) 02:34, 26 July 2017 (UTC)

Farrah Fawcett sister[edit]

There's other coincidences too. (ie, Gregg Allman and David Bowie die of liver cancer at 69, David Bowie and Alan Rickman die of abdominal cancer at 69 in the same week, Gene Cernan dies the same day as a picture he took is on the main page (which admittedly made it into the article for a while), Walter Becker and Glenn Frey die at 67 of complications from surgery, etc) Will all of these be placed into the article too? Also, I google searched for something like "farrah fawcett sister death cancer 62" and didn't get any notableish results.

Versus: "Coincidentally, she died on the same day that American singer-songwriter Michael Jackson died."

"Media coverage of Lewis's death was almost completely overshadowed by news of the assassination of US President John F. Kennedy, which occurred on the same day (approximately 55 minutes following Lewis's collapse), as did the death of English writer Aldous Huxley, author of Brave New World."

"Coincidentally, he died on the same day as Airplane co-founder Signe Toly Anderson."

"She died on the same day as Airplane co-founder Paul Kantner, also aged 74." (okay, these two didn't overshadow each other, but still...)

The Michael Jackson coincidence was mentioned because it diverted media attention quite significantly (ie, a google search, I figure anything there mentions Farrah Fawcett) while I can't find single source with anything on her sister. -A lad insane (Channel 2) 01:58, 6 September 2017 (UTC)

boarding schools[edit]

RE your summary on Donald Trump: There are indeed public boarding schools. See Canadian Indian residential school system or Residential treatment center for example. Meters (talk) 20:09, 24 September 2017 (UTC)

Youth detention center would be another example, perhaps one which some would wish had been used in this case. I have no commenton your edit (didn't bother looking at it), I'm just commenting on the content of your edit summary. Meters (talk) 20:13, 24 September 2017 (UTC)

I was referring to educational institutions, not reform schools or drug rehabilitation facilities.

Anthony22 (talk) 20:17, 24 September 2017 (UTC)

The native residential schools are nothing but educational institutions, and the other institutions must function as schools when they hold children. No big deal, I just thought that your edit summary was a bit too definitive onteh point. Meters (talk) 20:21, 24 September 2017 (UTC)
Bottom line, the wording of that caption is the product of consensus at the talk page, see Talk:Donald Trump/Archive 65#His faux military uniform. It should not be altered without consensus, and I have reverted your second attempt at rewording it. --MelanieN (talk) 00:31, 25 September 2017 (UTC)

2017 Las Vegas Strip shooting[edit]

Anthony, please slow down with your editing at 2017 Las Vegas Strip shooting. If you change something and someone reverts the change, go to the talk page and talk about it. SHOUTING your opinion in an edit summary[9] does not count as talking about it. Repeatedly changing the lede sentence when other people are changing it back calls for discussion, not simply changing it again. [10] I have seen your work on other pages, and I appreciate your methodical approach, doing many small edits that mostly do improve the article. But: trying to impose your own version over the objections of other people does NOT improve the article and is not the Wikipedia way. Please don't revert these things again, and please do come to the talk page and see if you can reach consensus about them. Thanks. --MelanieN (talk) 23:20, 4 October 2017 (UTC)

...and you are still edit warring - this time over the word "standoff". There is a discussion at the talk page about that very phrase, see "the opening section doesnt match with the chronology below". Please help at that discussion, where we are still deciding how to handle the real problem: the fact that the existing sentence (the one you restored) implies that his dead body was found 11 minutes after he started shooting. Now THAT is inaccurate. This article is still under development, and highly experienced editors are working on it; please become part of that process. You do not get to just keep imposing your own preference and ignoring the community. --MelanieN (talk) 00:29, 5 October 2017 (UTC)

Melanie:

I did not initiate the use of the word "standoff" in the article. I don't even know if there was a standoff. He might have committed suicide before the police arrived at his hotel room. As I said, there are a lot of inaccuracies and false statements in this article.--Anthony22 (talk) 00:37, 5 October 2017 (UTC)

And I asked you there and I ask you again here: please identify specific inaccuracies and false statements, so that we can correct them. --MelanieN (talk) 05:40, 5 October 2017 (UTC)
@Anthony22 and MelanieN: - Related to this [11] in what style guide are you referring to where "Room" is always capitalized like this? -- Fuzheado | Talk 14:13, 5 October 2017 (UTC)
@Fuzheado: AFAIK I wasn't involved in capitalizing the word "room" and I don't think it should be capitalized. And Anthony, there you go again: you made a change (room --> Room); somebody undid it; and you immediately reinserted it, citing only your own opinion. You need to STOP THIS. Your behavior, insisting on your own edits even after someone else has undone them, is in danger of becoming disruptive - and I don't use that word lightly. --MelanieN (talk) 15:23, 5 October 2017 (UTC)
@MelanieN: - Apologies for the mixup, I meant to just inform you of the situation, not to put any blame on you. -- Fuzheado | Talk 15:28, 5 October 2017 (UTC)
@Anthony22: - As MelanieN said, your editing is veering into the area of disruption. We've tried to assume good faith but if you're not working cooperatively after repeated warnings, then perhaps you should find another article to edit. -- Fuzheado | Talk 15:28, 5 October 2017 (UTC)

Joachim von Ribbentrop[edit]

Anthony: As opposed to GA and FA rated articles that have already been vetted, I would suggest "sinking your teeth" into some lower rated articles.

Leavelle interrogating Oswald on 22?[edit]

I just noticed that the LHO article (great job, btw, it certainly deserves its star) contradicts the one covering Jim Leavelle. The article says Oswald was questioned by Detective Jim Leavelle about the shooting of Officer Tippit on the 22nd after his arrest: "At about 2 p.m., Oswald arrived at the Police Department building, where homicide detective Jim Leavelle (1920–) questioned him about the shooting of Officer Tippit". But Leavelle’s biographical article on Wikipedia states the exact opposite - that he only interrogated Oswald on the 24th - the morning Oswald was shot, and that he had never talked to him before. Not accusing Leavelle of being unrealible or a liar but his interviews he has done in recent years are in contray to his WC testimony. Memory always distort from time to time.

This is also on the Oswald talk page. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 84.13.17.68 (talk) 22:39, 6 November 2017 (UTC)

Matthew Shepard[edit]

Hi Anthony22. That's a lot of edits in succession. I hope to get a chance to go over them individually sometime over the next day or two, but I don't want to conflict with you if you're planning on making more. Re the out-of-state hospital (I happened to mouse over that diff on my watchlist), I really don't suppose that needs to be said unless you can find a source that makes something of it. It's pretty routine to transport gravely ill patients to larger hospitals farther away. I can check, but my guess is that the Ft. Collins hospital was better equipped than the Laramie hospital, probably a mid- or high-level trauma center. If he'd been taken to the local hospital initially, they'd probably have transferred him to Ft. Collins anyway, and precious time would have been wasted.

Thanks, I might do that. I've been waiting for a good time when I have a free hour or so and am not fatigued, because I'm quite sure that some of the recent changes are not improvements—and there are so many to go through. I'll see if I can get to it tonight. I'm always a bit disappointed when I try to engage another user in conversation and fail, especially a user whose edits I often agree with, but I guess it's slightly weird mentioning it on that editor's talk page. :-p RivertorchFIREWATER 04:34, 27 November 2017 (UTC)

Jack Ruby calling Oswald "good looking" and resembling Paul Newman(lol)[edit]

  • laughs* I was surprised when I read that on the article. I actually hunted Knight's testimony down just now, thinking to myself “there is no way that Ruby would have said that” and.. well.. I am still questioning how on earth he pulled that Paul Newman comparison, as they don’t really look alike to me at all? But I cracked up when I read this because it actually made me imagine Oswald as a movie star for a second. Just look it up.

And I’m just going “if you thought he was goodlooking, why on earth did you shoot him and rob the planet of his pretty face?” at Ruby non-stop right now, sorry. xD — Preceding unsigned comment added by 149.254.234.155 (talk) 23:38, 23 November 2017 (UTC)

Scott Peterson[edit]

Hi. Thanks for the work you did on the Scott Peterson article. I think that most of the changes in wording you made may have been for the better. However, I reverted some of your edits for the following reasons:

  • Per WP:SURNAME, Wikipedia generally does not refer to the subject of an article by their given name. Aside from those instances when their first name is given (or when it's an exceptional case like the entertainer Madonna), we use their surname.
  • notice that you've been warned more than once on this talk page for adding material to articles that is not supported by cited sources, and I noticed that you did this in the S.P. article. For example:
    • You added years of birth and death to Jacqueline "Jackie" Helen Latham, even though that is not found in the citation that follows that information
    • You changed multiple mentions of Peterson reporting his wife missing to read that Laci's father reported her missing. This is also not found in the cited sources, which state that Peterson made the report.

Even though you may not edit as often as I do, you've been editing Wikipedia for almost as long as I have, so you should know by now that you should not add information to articles that is not supported by inline citations of reliable sources. Nonetheless, I appreciate all the tweaks of wording you made that improve how the article reads. Thanks again! :-) Nightscream (talk) 01:24, 14 December 2017 (UTC)

Charles Lindbergh and federal law[edit]

Thanks for helping out with Charles Lindbergh! Anyway I found this edit the statement "upgrade kidnapping from a state crime to a federal crime." IMO this "upgrade" wording isn't accurate, because in the US state law and federal law are in "separate sovereigns" or separate realms. Congress established kidnapping across state lines as a federal crime on top of kidnapping already being state crimes. Since they are separate realms, a person may be prosecuted under both state and federal law for the same criminal act, and this does not violate the double jeopardy clause. http://volokh.com/2013/06/13/cert-petition-asks-court-to-overturn-dual-sovereignty-doctrine-in-double-jeopardy-law WhisperToMe (talk) 03:46, 17 December 2017 (UTC)

Leavelle interrogating Oswald on 22?[edit]

But Leavelle’s biographical article on Wikipedia states the exact opposite - that he only interrogated Oswald on the 24th - the morning Oswald was shot, and that he had never talked to him before. Not accusing Leavelle of being unrealible or a liar but his interviews he has done in recent years are in contray to his WC testimony. Memory always distort from time to time. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 84.13.17.72 (talk) 17:49, 17 December 2017 (UTC)

Hey, I reverted some of your edits - apologies. I'd like to point out that, while in this case it doesn't matter so much, per WP:BLPPRIMARY, Do not use public records that include personal details, such as date of birth, home value, traffic citations, vehicle registrations, and home or business addresses., and thus not Selective Service System registration card either.

Commons-emblem-notice.svg This message contains important information about an administrative situation on Wikipedia. It does not imply any misconduct regarding your own contributions to date.

Please carefully read this information:

The Arbitration Committee has authorised discretionary sanctions to be used for pages regarding all edits about, and all pages related to post-1932 politics of the United States and closely related people, a topic which you have edited. The Committee's decision is here.

Discretionary sanctions is a system of conduct regulation designed to minimize disruption to controversial topics. This means uninvolved administrators can impose sanctions for edits relating to the topic that do not adhere to the purpose of Wikipedia, our standards of behavior, or relevant policies. Administrators may impose sanctions such as editing restrictions, bans, or blocks. This message is to notify you that sanctions are authorised for the topic you are editing. Before continuing to edit this topic, please familiarise yourself with the discretionary sanctions system. Don't hesitate to contact me or another editor if you have any questions.

I see you received a similar notice on May 3, 2016 but they need to be given once per year to have effect. Please be especially aware of the WP:1RR requirement at the Donald Trump BLP. Thanks. Anythingyouwant (talk) 23:24, 25 December 2017 (UTC)

December 2017[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Meters. I noticed that you made a change to an article, Anthony Weiner, but you didn't provide a reliable source. It's been removed and archived in the page history for now, but if you'd like to include a citation and re-add it, please do so! If you need guidance on referencing, please see the referencing for beginners tutorial, or if you think I made a mistake, you can leave me a message on my talk page. He did not resign from Congress because of sexting with minors. REad the article more closely. Meters (talk) 19:03, 30 December 2017 (UTC)

Information icon Please do not add or change content, as you did at Anthony Weiner, without citing a reliable source. Please review the guidelines at Wikipedia:Citing sources and take this opportunity to add references to the article. Per WP:BRD take this to talk or leave it alone. Your source does not say that there was more than one minor, and it does not say that he resigned from congress because of the case involving the minor. Meters (talk) 19:25, 30 December 2017 (UTC)

Hi,

Once again, please be very careful not to introduce mistakes to the article. It's very tiring having to correct them. Remember that this article has gone through a thorough review before. TrueHeartSusie3 (talk) 21:09, 3 January 2018 (UTC)TrueHeartSusie3

I have to agree with TrueHeartSusie3. As I suggested above, as opposed to GA and FA rated articles that have already been vetted, I would suggest editing some lower rated articles that actually need improvement; also, please use discernment when making changes and "re-working" text. Kierzek (talk) 15:00, 17 January 2018 (UTC)

Do you possess the self-awareness of how bad your edits are?[edit]

Judging by the numerous people who have tried to raise this issue with you on your talk page, the fact that you actually did a revert and not just steamroll your atrocious grammar and overlinking back in is some sort of progress, I guess. TheValeyard (talk) 04:05, 16 January 2018 (UTC)

Apparently you've made a total of five edits to your user talk page. 240 edits to talk pages overall. Not a talkative one are ya? It'd be nice if you responded more to some concerns. Galobtter (pingó mió) 05:19, 17 January 2018 (UTC)

January 2018[edit]

To enforce an arbitration decision and for violation of the 1RR restriction currently in place (the edit was by no means so serious that you needed to continue to incite aspersions by calling a typo "vandalism", you clearly are not taking this ruling very seriously nor the page restictions nor my warning earlier on the talk page) this type of behavior is not allowed on the page Donald Trump, you have been blocked from editing for a period of 24 hours. You are welcome to edit once the block expires; however, please note that the repetition of similar behavior may result in a longer block or other sanctions.

If you believe this block is unjustified, please read the guide to appealing blocks (specifically this section) before appealing. Place the following on your talk page: {{unblock|reason=Please copy my appeal to the [[WP:AE|arbitration enforcement noticeboard]] or [[WP:AN|administrators' noticeboard]]. Your reason here OR place the reason below this template. ~~~~}}. If you intend to appeal on the arbitration enforcement noticeboard I suggest you use the arbitration enforcement appeals template on your talk page so it can be copied over easily. You may also appeal directly to me (by email), before or instead of appealing on your talk page. Coffee // have a ☕️ // beans // 16:32, 16 January 2018 (UTC)


Reminder to administrators: In May 2014, ArbCom adopted the following procedure instructing administrators regarding Arbitration Enforcement blocks: "No administrator may modify a sanction placed by another administrator without: (1) the explicit prior affirmative consent of the enforcing administrator; or (2) prior affirmative agreement for the modification at (a) AE or (b) AN or (c) ARCA (see "Important notes" [in the procedure]). Administrators modifying sanctions out of process may at the discretion of the committee be desysopped."
