Potential sockpuppet of Levineps[edit]

Recently, User:Oriole85 (contribs) has been sporadically popping up on my watchlist for category-related changes. A lot of new users do that, so it wasn't a particularly noteworthy thing for me. But then he kept showing up with a higher frequency, oftentimes making (what I thought to be) completely unnecessary over-categorizations to articles. I've been on Wikipedia long enough to know that User:Levineps (contribs) is one of the most notorious over-categorizers we've ever seen (and has the community sanctions, block records, and bans to show for it). So, I did about two minutes' worth of research and discovered that Oriole85's account was created / his edits began on November 5, 2013. When was the last edit by Levineps? November 4, 2013. That is not a coincidence IMO. I don't have (a) the time right now, nor (b) the motivation to formally open an SPI, but I'm hoping that one of the many people I'm notifying about this does. If you're wondering why you're being pinged about this, it's because I saw where you were one of the people who has left messages on Levineps' talk page at some point regarding his inappropriate editing. So now, in addition to all of the aforementioned issues with Levineps, it looks like a probably sockpuppet to throw into the mix. Jrcla2 (talk) 05:29, 5 December 2013 (UTC)

IRC[edit]

Hi, several people from the baseball wikiproject are getting together after Wizardman's sudden retirement to figure out a better way to organize the Wikiproject. One of the ideas we came up with is having our own IRC channel to help each other, as well as new users with collaboration and content. If you need help connecting to IRC join #wikipedia-coffeehouse connect. The IRC channel for Wikiproject Baseball is #wiki-baseball connect. Thanks Secret account 22:51, 2 March 2014 (UTC)

WikiProject Amusement Parks Article Clean-Up[edit]

Recently, an issue has been brought up regarding the notability of many articles within WikiProject Amusement Parks. As a result, a page has been created regarding this issue as well as a possible solution (which will be on-going). In a nut-shell, certain articles will be picked to be reviewed in each stage and the WikiProject members (you) will decide if the article should be deleted or kept based on Wikipedia's notability guidelines.

I hoping this will work and if it doesn't, oh well...I tried.

Main Page appearance: Millennium Force[edit]

This is a note to let the main editors of Millennium Force know that the article will be appearing as today's featured article on May 13, 2014. If this article needs any attention or maintenance, it would be preferable if that could be done before its appearance on the Main Page. If you prefer that the article appear as TFA on a different date, or not at present, please ask Bencherlite (talk · contribs). You can view the TFA blurb at Wikipedia:Today's featured article/May 13, 2014. If it needs tweaking, or if it needs rewording to match improvements to the article between now and its main page appearance, please edit it, following the instructions at Wikipedia:Today's featured article/requests/instructions. The blurb as it stands now is below:

Millennium Force

Millennium Force is a steel roller coaster at Cedar Point amusement park in Sandusky, Ohio, United States. Completed in 2000, it has broken and helped to break ten world records. It was also the first Giga Coaster (any complete circuit roller coaster that exceeds 300 feet (91 m) in height) in the world. It was briefly the tallest and fastest complete circuit roller coaster in the world, before being surpassed by Steel Dragon 2000 in August 2000. The ride is also the second-longest roller coaster in North America after The Beast at Kings Island, and was the first roller coaster to use a cable lift system, rather than a traditional chain lift. The coaster has a 310 ft (94 m), 45 degree inclined lift hill with a 300 ft (91 m) drop, and features two tunnels, three overbanked turns, and four hills. It has a top speed of about 93 mph (150 km/h). Since 2001, Millennium Force has been voted the number one steel roller coaster in the world eight times in Amusement Today's Golden Ticket Awards, and has never been ranked lower than number two. Although it is no longer the tallest or fastest roller coaster at Cedar Point, it is still one of the tallest and fastest in the world. (Full article...)

You (and your talk-page stalkers) may also be interested to hear that there have been some changes at the TFA requests page recently. Nominators no longer need to calculate how many "points" an article has, the instructions have been simplified, and there's a new nomination system using templates based on those used for DYK suggestions. Please consider nominating another article, or commenting on an existing nomination, and leaving some feedback on your experience. Thank you. UcuchaBot (talk) 23:01, 25 April 2014 (UTC)

Roller coaster rankings[edit]

I know you haven't been around much lately, but when you get a chance next time you're on, can you look at the rankings page? An IP was attempting to add a "Tallest wooden roller coasters" section, which seems fine to me, but maybe you had a reason for not including one before. I just found it strange it wasn't already on there and figured there was a reason. --GoneIn60 (talk) 17:18, 4 June 2014 (UTC)

Hey @GoneIn60:! I took a look at the page and it was included. I looked back and it was removed nearly 5 months ago. I'm going to fix it up now. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.-- Astros4477 (Talk) 03:38, 8 June 2014 (UTC)

They should really ban IPs from editing, or at least make it harder for them to vandalize. I swear I spend at least 3/4 of my time on Wikipedia reverting that crap! Thanks for looking into this one. --GoneIn60 (talk) 13:23, 8 June 2014 (UTC)

Pipe Scream[edit]

I held off reverting that IP's edit, because there are articles out there that state Cedar Point is marketing Pipe Scream as their 17th roller coaster. It's even listed that way on their site. I understand RCDB doesn't register it as such, but it's probably going to be a topic of debate at some point. What are your thoughts? --GoneIn60 (talk) 20:46, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

I do not think it's a roller coaster and I do not think it should be listed as one on Wikipedia. Cedar Point often uses terms such as Maverick being a "terra" coaster and they just do this for marketing. I think Cedar Point is just doing this for marketing as well. Plus, we have never counted Surf Dog at Kings Island as a roller coaster.-- Astros4477 (Talk) 16:45, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
I tend to agree. I was just curious about your point of view. Thanks! --GoneIn60 (talk) 18:01, 10 July 2014 (UTC)

Big Three (Miami Heat)[edit]

@Astros4477: Because this article is mainly about the Big Three during the era they played together for the Miami Heat, not about the three players themselves and your edit made the article look like it was about the three player themselves Michiganwolverines2014 (talk) 14:36, 19 July 2014 (UTC)Michiganwolverines2014 (Talk)

Ohio Wikimedians User Group - Invitation[edit]

Ohio Wikimedians User Group logo without text.svg

Hi Astros4477,

I'm Kevin, one of the founding members of the Ohio Wikimedians User Group. Created in July 2016, we're working to be a central group of Ohio Wikimedians who organize and support offline events, promote the Wikimedia movement in Ohio, build connections throughout our state, and above all, support each other. We already have a handful of members and have worked to support multiple events, including Wiki Loves Monuments in the United States and several Art+Feminism edit-a-thons at universities throughout Ohio.

I wanted to reach out to you and invite you to join the Ohio Wikimedians User Group. Being a part of the user group will allow easy communication between active Ohio editors, notifications of upcoming events in the Ohio area, and, if you're interested, the opportunity to help organize events such as edit-a-thons or workshops. Some notes:

  • All members receive a monthly newsletter with recent happenings, upcoming events, and more. Check out our April newsletter here.
  • This Thursday at 8:30 EST, we're having our first online meeting. Check out our meeting page here for more details, an agenda, and a section to sign up if you'd like to join us. Topics will include introductions and brainstorming for future projects.

Right now we have a Wikipedia Takes Columbus photo event going on, a Wiknic coming up this summer, and opportunities to attend the upcoming Ohio Private Academic Libraries Conference. If you're interested in joining us, feel free to add your name here - and feel free to reach out to me (or post on the user group's talk page) with questions or discussions. Thanks! ~SuperHamster Talk Contribs 07:29, 18 April 2017 (UTC)
