Allamah Shibli Numani[edit]

Hi, you redirected Allamah Shibli Numani to Shibli Numani, which do not exist. And your comment on the talk page, "I figured that a merge was not necessary since the other article has substantially more info." suggests that a more comprehensive article exists. I can't find it with a search, so if you know the correct link, feel free to redirect it again. --Dodo bird 14:51, 27 March 2006 (UTC)

Arrondissement of Alès[edit]

Hi, I see you've put a {{redlinks}} on this and there certainly are quite a few. I feel they serve a purpose in giving a complete administrative structure. The article is one of a series on the 342 Arrondissements of France and there's a project Wikipedia:WikiProject French communes on which I'm making some (slow) progress to turn the links blue. You'd be very welcome over there, if you're interested in that sort of thing! Dlyons493 Talk 22:05, 27 March 2006 (UTC)

Wikipedia survey[edit]

Hi. I'm doing a survey of Wikipedia editors as part of a class research project. It's quick, anonymous, and the data will be made available to the Wikipedia community later this month. Would you like to take part? More info here. Thanks! Nonplus 00:28, 2 April 2006 (UTC)


Wow what a neat, tidy and optimistic Userpage. Anyway, just wrote to say that I loved your idea of turning the red links into stubs. It's probably a better idea than creating random stubs anyway. Dessydes 14:40, 5 April 2006 (UTC)

I find you to be unhelpful. In fact, when I remake the world, you won't be in it, you backpacking joke.--Islamisbad 22:50, 6 April 2006 (UTC)


Yeah, I'm a law student at KU, thanks for your help on KJHK. I kinda littered up the history, but now I know, next time I'll make all my edits at once. I think it's looking pretty nice. Thomas B 22:06, 8 April 2006 (UTC)

Hi Again[edit]

Hi again. Usepage still looking good, changed a bit though. I thought you'd like to know that for a while now there has been a Wikiproject dedicated to altering the state of red links, it is called Wikipedia:WikiProject Red Link Recovery. Peace out homes. Dessydes 17:21, 11 August 2006 (UTC)

Stanley Clark School AfD[edit]

Hi CharacterZero (instantly recognized your username, by the way -- very cool).

I just wanted to drop by to say hi and good job. I actually had the Reggio Emilia approach article opened in another tab and was pondering whether it was relevant to the discussion (the whole derived notability thing, etc.). I guess I got distracted, switched to another virtual machine to test something and completely forget about the article until I saw your edit show up in my watchlist.

I suppose all we have to do now is figure out if this is a case of great minds thinking alike or of fools seldom differing. Smile eye.png

Hope you have a great week. Cheers, Seed 2.0 19:57, 21 May 2007 (UTC)

  • Hi, and thanks. I say we treat this as a case of great minds, until proven foolish. It's basically an innocent until proven guilty situation. Agreed? CharacterZero | Speak 01:18, 23 May 2007 (UTC)

Catholic American entertainers[edit]

Hello. I commented to your suggestion about post-nominations. I agree. It is about time to rid wikipedia of these strange categories and lists. Bulldog123 04:31, 22 May 2007 (UTC)

Haskell-Baker Wetlands[edit]

I find you to be unhelpful, you backpacking joke. Just kidding (that is one of the strangest lines I've ever seen on a discussion page, see above). Thanks for the heads-up on the NPOV tag. Off the record, I'm not disputing that the SLT would do harm to the environment, I just think that the controversy section is not very neutral. I added my 2 cents on the talk page. And, of course, Go Hawks! PeteJayhawk 13:53, 30 May 2007 (UTC)

WP:CVU status[edit]

The Wikipedia:Counter-Vandalism Unit project is under consideration to be moved to {{inactive}} and/or {{historical}} status. Another proposal is to delete or redirect the project. You have been identified as a project member and your input as to this matter would be welcomed at WT:CVU#Inactive.3F and at the deletion debate. Thank you!

Replaceable fair use Image:John F. Cassidy.jpg[edit]

Replaceable fair use

Thanks for uploading Image:John F. Cassidy.jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that the media is being used under fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first fair use criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this media is not replaceable, please:

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

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace the fair use media 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 taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our fair use 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, fair use media which could be replaced by free-licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if not used in an article), per our Fair Use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. High on a tree (talk) 01:11, 5 December 2007 (UTC)

Asking for help on WiKUpedia project[edit]

Hi CharacterZero,

My name is Jarrod and I'm currently working on a project called WiKUpedia, with the goal of providing the one-stop shop for all things KU. We've had a tremendous response from the community since we went live on Sunday but we need help organizing and improving the wiki. We decided to reach out to experienced Wikipedia editors working on the WikiProject: Kansas. I saw that you've improved a few Lawrence articles like KJHK and Wakarusa Wetlands. You can read a little more about our project in a news story in the Lawrence Journal World

Please feel free to take a look around our project and if this sounds like something that interests you, please respond on my talk page or by email. Thank you so much in advance. Jarrodm (talk) 04:09, 1 February 2008 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with Image:Shawnee Mission South Raider Logo.gif[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Shawnee Mission South Raider Logo.gif. You've indicated that the image is being used under a claim of fair use, but you have not provided an adequate explanation for why it meets Wikipedia's requirements for such images. In particular, for each page the image is used on, the image must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Can you please check

  • That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's description page for each article the image is used in.
  • That every article it is used on is linked to from its description page.

This is an automated notice by FairuseBot. For assistance on the image use policy, see Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. --FairuseBot (talk) 00:35, 31 October 2008 (UTC)

WP:Hornbook -- a new law-related task force for the J.D. curriculum[edit]

Hi CharacterZero,

I'm asking Wikipedians who are interested in United States legal articles to take a look at WP:Hornbook, the new "JD curriculum task force".

Our mission is to assimilate into Wikipedia all the insights of an American law school education, by reducing hornbooks to footnotes.

  • Over the course of a semester, each subpage will shift its focus to track the unfolding curriculum(s) for classes using that casebook around the country.
  • It will also feature an extensive, hyperlinked "index" or "outline" to that casebook, pointing to pages, headers, or {{anchors}} in Wikipedia (example).
  • Individual law schools can freely adapt our casebook outlines to the idiosyncratic curriculum devised by each individual professor.
  • I'm encouraging law students around the country to create local chapters of the club I'm starting at my own law school, "Student WP:Hornbook Editors". Using WP:Hornbook as our headquarters, we're hoping to create a study group so inclusive that nobody will dare not join.

What you can do now:

1. Add WP:Hornbook to your watchlist, {{User Hornbook}} to your userpage, and ~~~~ to Wikipedia:Hornbook/participants.
2. If you're a law student,
(You don't have to start the club, or even be involved in it; just help direct me to someone who might.)
3. Introduce yourself to me. Law editors on Wikipedia are a scarce commodity. Do knock on my talk page if there's an article you'd like help on.

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

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.
