Chicano flag[edit]

Sorry about changing the flag on the Aztlan article. I did not creat the design of that flag, just the actual file that was uploaded. The Eagle with a Macuahuitl was used as an unoffcial Azltan banner used by mexican americans in the Los Angeles immigration protests recently. I didnt realize that the current displayed flag was up for a specific purpose. Sorry for removing it. Rahlgd (talk) 13:51, 5 September 2010 (UTC)


I can't see any reason not to post a notice with the Systemic Bias noticeboard. It sounds like a great idea to me. More editors is always a good thing. Remember that Wikipedia is a long term project, and you have to pace yourself to not get burnt out. Can you let me know when you post it? I might like to add a bit too. ·:· Will Beback ·:· 05:54, 27 June 2007 (UTC)

Margita Bangová[edit]

It is totally legitimate to remove any content that isn't sourced, and is debated. So if a statement is cited, but the citation is bogus, it can be removed. That's an amazing amount of bogus cites it sounds like. I'll put the page on my watchlist, and if you do changes, I'll back it up, and try to check out those cites myself as well. Cheers!

Chicaneo, I've replied to your comment at User talk:Desiphral#Margita Bangová article with some instructive links to our policies on this issue. You are welcome to clean up the citations if necessary, but please don't remove any information in contravention of our policies. —Psychonaut 19:26, 27 June 2007 (UTC)

Hi! Thanks a lot for your support and for the focused way of dealing with this article. Now I see that most of the bogus sources ar succesfully removed. Thanks again, Desiphral-देसीफ्राल 11:19, 28 June 2007 (UTC)
It looks like this matter was settled. Let me know if there's anything I can do. ·:· Will Beback ·:· 20:48, 2 July 2007 (UTC)
Thanks to your approach, finally someone considered to remove this article based on a tabloid. Way to go! Desiphral-देसीफ्राल 11:56, 3 July 2007 (UTC)


Always appreciate the heads up. ----evrik (talk) 17:48, 5 July 2007 (UTC)

Re:Thanks for the infobox[edit]

You are more then welcomed. The last few months I have been working on a project as answer to Ken Burns film the "The War" which will air on PBS and which has omitted the contributions by Hispanics. The injustice against Felix Longoria is part of my project. I have sent a preview of my work to some influencial people and since you are from Texas, I'll share the response of one your states top educators:

"What a wonderful article! It is awesome. And of course, I was very impressed with the role of women in the military. I plan to read more on this subject. I recognize some of the names in the stories, San Antonio has some of these heros. I am taking your article to our next group meeting to share with my friends (some who are teachers). When we discuss WWII, in class I want to include some of your stories-- the known heroes and those that just served. Many of our students have family members in the military and I want them to understand that we need to honor all Hispanics. It is your stories that have made me more aware of the contributions of Hispanics in the military. I understand the need to include this as part our study on WWII."

Take care Tony the Marine 23:08, 18 July 2007 (UTC)

  • You are right about The Felix Longoria case and it makes me sick to think that this day in age this is still going on. Take for example the case of Marine Sgt. Rafael Peralta. This brave Marine threw himself on a grenade and saved his comrades. He should have already been awarded the Medal of Honor! But, with the exception of the Los Angeles Times, most of our mainstream media haven't bothered to write about him. Yet, if a Hispanic does comite a negative act, he will recieve national attention. The media has been very succussful in creating an Anti-Hispanic sentiment in this country maybe as a devise to cover up the news about world events (war) that is really important. Anyway, I'm trying to change the negative perspective that has been created of our people by providing positive role models. If you like, you can send me your e-mail and I will send you a preview of my article. We will keep in touchTony the Marine 18:14, 19 July 2007 (UTC)

Why you're White[edit]

Are you an Idiot? There is no "Raza", or "Bronze Race" —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:02, 20 September 2007 (UTC)

My dear User I do not appreciate anyone, in particular an unregistered user, using my personal talk page to talk trash about me. Please grow some cojones and get an account. Please grow to an adequate level of maturity so that you are able to identify which articles you are refering to and also to be able to discuss the issues in your posts. Calling people idiots on their own talk page for no apparent reason is really idiotic. XXXOOO Chicaneo 20:16, 17 October 2007 (UTC)

I promise you, I have no idea what you're talking about 22:09, 17 October 2007 (UTC)

National Council of La Raza article[edit]

Hello I noticed that you're a member of the wiki project for Mexican Americans and I thought I'd point out that an anonymous user recently added POV commentary to the National Council of La Raza article. They described NCLR as a "Brown Supremacist advocacy hate group". I'd undo those edits myself but I'm uncertain about how to revert changes with intermediate edits.JanDove23 (talk) 08:15, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

San Antonio task force[edit]

I want to start a Wikipedia:WikiProject Texas task force about San Antonio. What do you think about the idea? WhisperToMe (talk) 23:04, 8 November 2009 (UTC)

Wikipedia:WikiProject Mexican-Americans[edit]

Wikipedia:WikiProject Mexican-Americans was tagged as inactive in April 2010 - Did we all get burnout or just really busy? Chicaneo (talk) 07:23, 18 June 2010 (UTC)

I don't know what happened.--LatinoMuslim 13:25, 18 June 2010 (UTC)
To avoid having a WikiProject being marked inactive, it's a good idea to constantly post activity on it - i.e. respond to any questions and queries made on the WikiProject's talk page, etc.
In regards to the scops of WP Mexican Americans and WP Latinos, a task force by definition covers a subset within a larger project. I.E. Detroit is a task force of Michigan. WP Latinos does encompass many cultures, while Mexican-American has one - but Detroit is a subset of Michigan, and Mexican-Americans are a subset of Latinos.
Thanks for the clarification. Hope you are able to participate once again. Chicaneo (talk) 21:35, 18 June 2010 (UTC)
WhisperToMe (talk) 15:42, 18 June 2010 (UTC)
P.S. if any members of the project have good Spanish, I encourage them to join es:Wikiproyecto:Estados Unidos on the Spanish Wikipedia so they can improve articles related to the United States :)
And you are also invited to join the WP: Mexican-Americans ;) Chicaneo (talk) 21:35, 18 June 2010 (UTC)
Thank you! I have an article, Gulfton, Houston, which I have worked on for several years. It is a community in Houston that has many recent arrivals from Mexico and Central America. At some point I hope to have it promoted to FA status. WhisperToMe (talk) 16:39, 19 June 2010 (UTC)

Multiple accounts is not allowed[edit]

Can I ask why you created a new account by the name of Dream big4ever, and then proceeded to send yourself a welcome message? I'm completely vexed as to why you have done this. Jrcla2 (talk) 05:19, 19 July 2010 (UTC)

A: My account is Chicaneo. A family member just created their own account (Dream big4ever) from the computer in the next room. I sent her a welcome message and I am helping her start her user page. I suppose it appears weird because we are using the same IP address? Chicaneo (talk) 05:25, 19 July 2010 (UTC)

I have just created a new article: Mestico (Brazil) The c needd to be a ç. I could not find the special characters link & now I don't know how to fix the title. Please help. Chicaneo (talk) 12:08, 20 July 2010 (UTC)

Since your article is just a copy of the relevant section of Mestizo, I've redirected it there. Algebraist 12:32, 20 July 2010 (UTC)

(edit conflict)

Done; copy-paste works.
The article, however, lacks any references at all; unreferenced facts may be removed, and with no references, the article is in danger of deletion - it looks like original research, which is not permitted. See WP:VRS, WP:FIRST. Chzz  ►  12:34, 20 July 2010 (UTC)
Please see my reply in User talk:Chzz#You just helped me. - Chicaneo

Erm. Re. the edit conflict; I think I moved it before it was redirected. Or something.  Chzz  ►  12:34, 20 July 2010 (UTC)

Please see my reply in User talk:Chzz#You just helped me. - Chicaneo

Ah right, yes, I had. But Mestiço (Brazil) has now been redirected too - and I agree, that does seem appropriate; I do not see the need for a separate article, at this stage. If you wish to try and make one, I suggest you work on a userspace draft first.  Chzz  ►  12:36, 20 July 2010 (UTC)

Please see my reply in User talk:Chzz#You just helped me.
I have copied the draft to User:Chicaneo/Mestiço (Brazil), where you may work on it. Cheers,  Chzz  ►  12:56, 20 July 2010 (UTC)

I have my hands full right now with Wikipedia: WikiProject Mexican-Americans, Wikipedia:WikiProject Texas, and the San Antonio task force. I plan on taking a look at your Gulfton article when I get my first break next week. BTW I put your Gulfton, Houston article at the top of the WP:MEXAM To Do List.

Welcome back[edit]

I'm glad you've returned.

Regarding the Mestizo article: There have been various criticisms of the CIA Factbook, but it's generally considered to be reliable. I looked a little for criticism of this specific information, and found it in an unlikely place.[1] Given that the information is apparently based on extrapolations and estimates, putting that date into the infobox and the map may be giving one viewpoint too much weight. See WP:UNDUE. In any case, stay cool.   Will Beback  talk  00:59, 16 September 2010 (UTC)

I'm sure there'll be more. Feel free to contact me or another admin again if there is a problem.   Will Beback  talk  09:40, 18 September 2010 (UTC)


I can't recommend any particular expert, though tough questions might go to the talk page of WP:CITE. Regarding that source, I'd probably use a template, Template:Cite book. That'd make it look like this:

  • Smithe, Frank B. (1966). The birds of Tikal. Illustrated by John Doe. Garden City, N.Y.: Natural History Press, for the American Museum of Natural History. OCLC 555759. 

But the template isn't strictly necessary.   Will Beback  talk  02:29, 19 September 2010 (UTC)
