Images needed.[edit]

If anybody has a free image of Dave Barnes, please put it on the Dave Barnes article on the info box, thanks! - Billybob2002 (talk) 02:15, 10 April 2013 (UTC)

You mean this guy? --Nat Gertler (talk) 02:41, 10 April 2013 (UTC)

Recent edits concerning deism tags.[edit]

Hello, I'm NathanWubs. I wanted to let you know that I undid one or more of your recent contributions because it didn't appear constructive. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks! —Preceding undated comment added 10:21, 15 April 2013 (UTC)

Please take a look at the Manual of Style for images, Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Images, particularly WP:IMGSIZE. GDallimore (Talk) 11:00, 23 April 2013 (UTC)

April 2013[edit]

Hello, I'm Pass a Method. I noticed that you made a change to an article, but you didn't provide a reliable source. It's been removed for now, but if you'd like to include a citation and re-add it, please do so! If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. Pass a Method talk 12:03, 28 April 2013 (UTC)

Please stop your disruptive editing. If you continue to add unsourced content, templates or other materials from Wikipedia, you may be blocked from editing. Thank you. Pass a Method talk 09:09, 29 April 2013 (UTC)

What disruptive editing? - Billybob2002 (talk) 02:44, 30 April 2013 (UTC)

A full 75% of your edits are disruptive or useless. People have been trying to guide you to relevant policies since you started editing, but you just blanked all their advice from your talk page, and now you have nothing but warnings on your talk page. Start behaving intelligently, or you will find yourself blocked. GDallimore (Talk) 09:47, 30 April 2013 (UTC)

So that is a compliment, because 25% of them are good! :) Anyways, my above question was asking what article(s) in particular was disruptive. - Billybob2002 (talk) 03:09, 2 May 2013 (UTC)

Old Earth Creationism[edit]

Re this edit which was reverted, may I suggest that you work on the section Criticism. The section needs some expanding, especially references for the criticisms.Sjö (talk) 12:13, 30 April 2013 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of List of former Presidential Candidates[edit]

Hello Billybob2002,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged List of former Presidential Candidates for deletion, because it appears to duplicate an existing Wikipedia article, [[:{{{article}}}]].

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted, you can contest this deletion, but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. Thanks, fix Barney the barney barney (talk) 22:11, 5 May 2013 (UTC)

Please check whether articles exist before you create duplicates of them. Otherwise you just waste your time and others. In this case you duplicated List of United States presidential candidates, and it wasn't even very complete. Please also remember that other republics exits outside of the United States which have presidents, and other organisations even have presidents, and as such it's always "United States presidential candidates" rather than "presidential candidates". Barney the barney barney (talk) 08:39, 6 May 2013 (UTC)

Moot[edit]

In US English, moot in a legal context roughly means stale, or no longer relevant. diff __ Just plain Bill (talk) 00:09, 6 May 2013 (UTC)

"Debatable" and "moot" have different connotations, and are not interchangeable. Rather than continuing with an edit war, please discuss your reasons for this change at Talk:Efforts to impeach George W. Bush. Thank you, __ Just plain Bill (talk) 13:35, 16 May 2013 (UTC)

May 2013[edit]

Information icon Please refrain from making unconstructive edits to Wikipedia, as you did at Adam. Your edits appear to be disruptive and have been reverted or removed.

  • If you are engaged in an article content dispute with another editor then please discuss the matter with the editor at their talk page, or the article's talk page. Alternatively you can read Wikipedia's dispute resolution page, and ask for independent help at one of the relevant notice boards.
  • If you are engaged in any other form of dispute that is not covered on the dispute resolution page, please seek assistance at Wikipedia's Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents.

Please ensure you are familiar with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines, and please do not continue to make edits that appear disruptive, until the dispute is resolved through consensus. Continuing to edit disruptively could result in loss of editing privileges. Thank you. The cited ref is very explicit. You can also read the linked target page (and various related talkpages) to find extensive consensus on use of the term "creation myth". You'll need an explicit and consensus reason to change that. DMacks (talk) 03:45, 14 May 2013 (UTC)

Bill White[edit]

And if you'd look at the history of the Senate election article you'd see that I found the source to list him as a potential candidate. So I am aware he has not announced he's running, and so would you be if you'd look at the Senate election article or the source used on the page. Ratemonth (talk) 02:54, 2 June 2013 (UTC)

Yes, I did not realize at the time that he was listed as potential. -- Billybob2002 (talk) 02:58, 2 June 2013 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use File:Picture of Tom Emmer.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Picture of Tom Emmer.jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that this media item is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails the first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media item could be found or created that provides substantially the same information or which could be adequately covered with text alone. If you believe this media item is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the file description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the file discussion page, write the reason why this media item is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media item by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by creating new media yourself (for example, by taking your own photograph of the subject).

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per the non-free content policy. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. (ESkog)(Talk) 06:11, 8 June 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for June 21[edit]

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

Jeff Johnson (Minnesota politician)[edit]

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. We appreciate your contributions, but 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.

If the external website belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must include on the external site the statement "I, (name), am the author of this article, (article name), and I release its content under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License, Version 1.2 and later, and under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribute Share-Alike."

You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question at the "Help Desk". You can also leave a message on my talk page. Jonathunder (talk) 23:01, 27 July 2013 (UTC)

Copyright concerns[edit]

As you've seen from previous discussion, we don't include copyright-violating items in the text. Relevant to your recent edits at David Barton, we also don't link to copyright-violating items, per WP:LINKVIO. In the case of YouTube, that means that we can generally link to something from an official account (if Beck's show itself had posted the video), but we don't link to it if others posted it... whether that is fans or detractors. --Nat Gertler (talk) 17:30, 30 July 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for July 31[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited United States House of Representatives elections in Minnesota, 2014, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page John Pederson (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.

Links to pages[edit]

Hey, I noticed you put links to candidate pages that don't exist. There is no reason to have red links on a page, so from now on please check to make sure someone has a page before adding the [[ ]] around their names. Rxguy (talk) 16:48, 5 August 2013 (UTC)

While Rxguy may be against redlinks, Wikipedia guidelines actually encourage redlinks within resaonable guidelines, as it has been found to encouraged growth in the encyclopedia. --Nat Gertler (talk) 17:30, 5 August 2013 (UTC)
To clarify: Candidates such as Gurley L. Martin, John Kemper, Greg Leichty, Ed Marksberry, Bennie J. Smith in the Kentucky Senate race are not what the Wikipedia guidelines that NatGertler mentioned refer to. They are unknown candidates with nothing significantly notable other than the fact that they are extreme long-shots as candidates. These are people that really have no reasonable shot at having a Wikipedia page, for good reasons, and would likely remain on the page for eternity as broken links. Rxguy (talk) 18:34, 5 August 2013 (UTC)

Perhaps a few of them should have an article. -- Billybob2002 (talk) 02:32, 6 August 2013 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help.

The article Kingdom's Dawn has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

no indication of notability

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

May 2014[edit]

Information icon Please do not add commentary or your own personal analysis to Wikipedia articles, as you did to Ken Ham. Doing so violates Wikipedia's neutral point of view policy and breaches the formal tone expected in an encyclopedia. Your addition of the word 'allegedly' was a clear violation of our NPOV policy, as was removal of the critical external links at Answers in Genesis Dougweller (talk) 05:32, 20 May 2014 (UTC)

Is there a rule against putting 'allegedly' on the articles? -- Billybob2002 (talk) 05:37, 20 May 2014 (UTC)

Yep, it's called WP:ALLEGED. Your placed it there to cast doubt on scientific consensus. Dougweller (talk) 06:40, 20 May 2014 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
