The Lotus Temple of the Bahai Faith in New Delhi, India
Along with the evidence of Common Sense, researchers have proven scientifically that humans are all one people. The color of our ancestors skin and ultimately my skin and your skin, is a consequence of ultraviolet light, of latitude and climate. Despite our recent sad conflicts here in the U.S.... THERE REALLY IS NO SUCH THING AS RACE. We are one species. Each of us much more alike than different. We all come from Africa. We are all of the same stardust. We are all going to live and die on the same planet. A pale blue dot in the vastness of space. We have to work together. Bill Nye, the science guy.

Your right bicep[edit]


Look at this, I actually have a picture of your right bicep! I wanted to put this on the article talk page, but I figured there was probably some kind of rule against humor there. --MelanieN (talk) 19:50, 17 August 2016 (UTC)

OMG. Yes! It's a close replica. And yes, I'm sure there is a rule. But, considering the tense-ness that creeps into political articles I think humor is a good thing to ease the discourse. It turns frowns into smiles...foes into least for a moment. Buster Seven Talk 20:03, 17 August 2016 (UTC)
My belief exactly. But I find that whenever I attempt humor on a general Wikipedia page, I generally get scolded for it. And for some reason, posting pictures on article talk pages is particularly hand-slap worthy. Best to keep it among friends. --MelanieN (talk) 21:27, 17 August 2016 (UTC)
OMT (one more thing....) Except for my own blathering's at the campaign article there has been zero article or talk page input in the past few days. Its not like things have not happened. The Law and Order speech, him saying he's gonna be who he is, the Manafort problem, the polls, etc. Is everyone on vacation ...resting up for the home stretch? Buster Seven Talk 21:50, 17 August 2016 (UTC)
Well, I'm working on some stuff. (I want to create "people and groups" articles for Paul Ryan and Ted Cruz.) And there's been a lot of action at the Donald Trump article, even if the campaign article has slowed down. I do think we will need to say something about Manafort but I don't think that story is ripe yet. --MelanieN (talk) 23:01, 17 August 2016 (UTC)
RE: No humor allowed: Apparently chit chat isn't allowed either. Teacher just came along and hatted the "I am who I am" discussion. --MelanieN (talk) 23:40, 17 August 2016 (UTC)

Yea. I just saw that. That's why I used to hang out in the back of class. It was harder for the teacher to hit you with the chalk when thrown from the front of the room. I did thank Nuclear for the "interesting" comment. At least it was friendly. I guess time is better spent having long-winded discussions about 1RR v 3RR and edit warring, etc. Buster Seven Talk 05:38, 18 August 2016 (UTC)

Hours later and still no mention of staff changes. I heard a funny comment..."It looks like the campaign is in hospice care and he wants to surround himself with friends and family." Buster Seven Talk 20:13, 18 August 2016 (UTC)
@MelanieN: Still very quiet at the Campaign article. just today added a thread about the Comm-in-Chief forum and Black community and Pam Bondi. Tried to be as neutral as possible. I really think the article could be separated in two...primary and general. Not that I care how long it gets but length becomes an excuse to leave out important, almost daily, happenings. I'm working @ User:Buster7/Commander-in-Chief Forum. It was a first time event and deserves an article. Buster Seven Talk 20:48, 10 September 2016 (UTC)
Good for you. I'd suggest putting the year or some other identifier in the title - "2016 Commander in Chief Forum" or "Commander in Chief Forum 2016" - because otherwise it sounds like some kind of permanent organization instead of an election-year event. --MelanieN (talk) 18:52, 11 September 2016 (UTC)


It has been a while, how have you been? I saw that the bot archived the content from the talk page but I have restored the changes for now. It only shows how crucial your efforts are for the project. Since you have not been active there, I felt like I should check if everything was okay (I hope it is). I see that you have been occupied with probably one of the, if not the most controversial topic on this site at the moment. I understand that it could be tiring and very frustrating at times to deal with such a topic. I wish you all the very best for the work you have been doing and thank you for all the hard work you are putting into this site. Regards, Yash! 20:09, 11 September 2016 (UTC)

Thank you so much for your kind words Yash. I do miss EotW and WER. The work was hard but not too stressful. Many fond memories of meeting wonderful editors like yourself. But, with the looming election, I faced a challenge basically of where to devote my time. I am still very interested and hopeful for the continued success of the project. I hope Kevin can find a suitable replacement. I'm tempted to respond on the talk page but I then think not to. I just feel the work I am doing now may have more effect in the real world...for the future of my 13 grandchildren. I certainly hope it helps a little. Thanks for stopping bye. I'll come visit you some time! Buster Seven Talk 20:55, 11 September 2016 (UTC)
