Willie King date of birth[edit]

Dear Chuckiesdad

There was some confusion when WIllie King died about his birth date. Having worked very closely with him during the last few years of his life, including having a copy of his birth certificate, the facts are that i) his birth certificate gives his date of birth as 25 March, 1943 and ii) he always celebrated his birthday on 18 March, saying he was born a few days earlier than his birth certificate stated.

I note that the New York Times reference now says Mr. King died at 65. My guess is that somehow "8" and "18" got confused and once the rumor started it was hard to stop.

Thank you for your work on this page - Willie was great musician and outstanding human being. --Rasherson (talk) 06:07, 26 July 2009 (UTC)—Preceding unsigned comment added by Rasherson (talkcontribs) 05:57, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

  • Thanks for your insight on this, Rasherson. Why don't you post what you said here to the article Talk Page where others can see it? There's already a discussion there about the lack of evidence for his birth date, and I think this takes care of it. I'll add a reference in the article citing his birth certificate. Best regards, Chuckiesdad/Talk/Contribs 14:55, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

Thanks! I've updated the Talk Page as you suggest. Your help is much appreciated. Rasherson (talk) 23:58, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

McCumber Cube - Motivation subsection[edit]

I am a new user. Just wanted to understand why you deleted my section from the McCumber Cube page Thanks —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 14:32, 26 September 2009

  • Thanks for contributing! That's a good question. The last line of the section you added was: Copyright © 2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR . Wikipedia guidelines don't allow the addition of copyrighted material without permission. I've moved the section to the article's talk page in case you want to pursue permissions from the copyright holder, or rework it, then add it back to the article. I should have done that initially. Regards, Chuckiesdad/Talk/Contribs 15:32, 26 September 2009 (UTC)
  • Thank you for explaining the reason. I reworded it and posted again. Please let me know, whether it looks alright. Thanks again for helping. Regards.

Shawn Mitchell[edit]

Hi Chuckiesdad,

I recently updated State Senator Shawn Mitchell's bio with accurate information and many references. He recently has come under fire regarding some remarks he made. It keeps getting removed from the bio by another user and being new here I don't understand if that is allowed or if I'm allowed to post the truth or what the story is. I do want it to stick. My goal is to make sure the truth about this man is on his bio. I've been trying to read about Wikipedia and their rules but I don't yet know how to communicate with the other user who is removing the entry. I did receive a warning and I don't want to jeopardize my membership in the Wikipedia community as I think it's a great tool for the truth.

Do you have any suggestions for me? Thanks for your help. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Eyeonyou (talkcontribs) 17:54, 26 September 2009 (UTC)

  • Hello Eyeonyou, welcome to Wikipedia, and thanks for contributing. Once an edit to an article has been reverted (changed back) by another editor, it's time to discuss it on the article's Talk page rather than continuing to undo each other's changes. The goal is consensus, not edit warring. You can post to the article Talk page just like you posted here, and also to the other editor's Talk page inviting they join the discussion. You can see other editors on the article's Revision History page. If that fails, you can go to the New Contributor's Help Page and post a request for assistance from a neutral editor. There's a button there called Click Here to Ask Your Question. You can also post the issue on your own talk page with the {{helpme}} tag, which will attract another editor offering assistance and advice. Happy editing! Chuckiesdad/Talk/Contribs 19:09, 26 September 2009 (UTC)

Hello old account, onsetcloud, was not controlled by me at the times it made those edits. can you please reset my strike count or something? The pages my friends edited, including Trobone Trouble were not intended by me to be vandalized, and i really didnt want to start a new account. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Cloudonset!

Future Ads entry[edit]

Hello, I am new to Wikipedia, and tried to post a new entry for a company called Future Ads. It received a Speedy Deletion warning, and I wanted to see what I can do to rework the article to make it suitable for your / Wikipedia's guidelines. I thought it was all pretty neutral, and there were mentions of awards and positive claims about the company, but I feel they were all properly cited and referenced. I completely respect the Wikipedia rules, and would love some assistance with reworking this article. Many thanks!! Mwebbcom (talk) 03:57, 31 October 2009 (UTC)

  • Thanks for asking. There were two issues with the article that were contrary to Wiki guidelines, as I noted on your talk page: advertising and conflict of interest. The article was a promotional piece in tone and content. It probably could have been salvaged with a rewrite, although I'm not sure whether it would pass the notability test. The more serious problem was conflict of interest, since you apparently represent an agent of Future Ads, according to the last line of this press release. Wiki guidelines don't allow autobiographical articles about individuals or companies by their subjects, agents or related entities. Regards, Chuckiesdad/Talk/Contribs 19:41, 31 October 2009 (UTC)

Hello again, Thanks for the message. Would it be possible to have you write up the entry? Or, may I submit a request to have it written by an editor? If I pose a conflict of interest, then, is there a place where I can suggest this entry be added? I think the company is worth review to see if it passes the notability test as the company has received enough coverage, and won business awards, etc. I'd love some more guidance on what steps I am able to take. Thanks again. Mwebbcom (talk) 02:58, 2 November 2009 (UTC)

Thanks again Chuckiesdad. I appreciate your help. If you have a second to reply, how would you have changed / reworked the write up of the entry? You say above that it probably could have been salvaged with a rewrite, so what would you have done differently? I am just trying to think in Wiki terms. Thanks again!! Mwebbcom (talk) 22:29, 3 November 2009 (UTC)

      • Think encyclopedia. As I mentioned above and on your Talk page: the article reads like an ad, not like an encyclopedia entry. I see the article has been moved to your userspace so you can work on it. I would recommend: 1. Read WP:ORG. 2. Read WP:AUTO. 3. Read some of the featured articles that represent the best of Wikipedia, especially in the Business section. 4. Edit your draft according to these guidelines and post a request for review at WP:Drawing board. Happy editing, Chuckiesdad/Talk/Contribs 02:46, 4 November 2009 (UTC)

Hi Chuckiesdad, I hope you are doing well. I followed all of your advice, went back, revised my article about Future Ads in an attempt to make it more encyclopedic. I had reworked the article all on my userpage / sandbox, then posted a request to have an editor review. I was working with an editor named Graeme Barlett, he had some comments for me, then replied and basically said the article looked good, not too spammy, had the notability claims in there, and that he would not put a speedy deletion on it. He did suggest, however, that since you were involved in the original speedy deletion that I should write to you for one more look at the article, and for your approval. So, would you mind taking a look at the entry as it is now. Thanks so much again for all your assistance. I appreciate it. I assume that if it looks good to you, may I post the article? How would I go about showing that the article has gone through editorial reviews and approvals? Thanks so much. The article can be found currently at User:Mwebbcom/Future Ads. To see the last editors comments, you can find them on my talk page at the bottom. Mwebbcom (talk) 20:05, 1 December 2009 (UTC)

Creech AFB[edit]

What is wrong with the sentence that I added? It wasn't POV (but I can see how the part about "perpetrating drone attacks" is). It didn't refer to protests, it referred to multiple organizations (linked to by that Nevada Desert Experience page, which served as a portal to other critical articles) that criticized the use of Predator and Reaper drones. I found it better to link to that one page than to add links to all the pages that the portal page linked to. I didn't even mention protests. Ein Spiel (talk) 18:14, 31 October 2009 (UTC)

  • For the external link, see WP:ELPOINTS #2. For the content, see the last paragraph in the History section, there's a Wikilink to Nevada Desert Experience and an external citation to Voices for Creative Nonviolence. My edit note should have said 'criticism' instead of 'protest'. If you want to add more content about criticism, it would fit better under History or even in a separate section rather than in the lead. Yes, "perpetrate" definitely holds a POV. BTW, I agreed with your edit that removed the mission statement, it was POV in the other direction. Chuckiesdad/Talk/Contribs 19:17, 31 October 2009 (UTC)
Thank you. Is it alright if I add the sentence in the "History" section? Ein Spiel (talk) 20:37, 31 October 2009 (UTC)
Be bold! Happy editing, Chuckiesdad/Talk/Contribs 21:54, 31 October 2009 (UTC)



The page of clairgnosis was deleated. I made the change necessary. The page was put up for deletion. There is no advertising as the book mentioned and deleated in not in print any longer. The term is used often and in the practice of energy medicine and teaching of energy medicine. Without the term in Wikipedia you are at a disadvantage. I have personally used it in many published articles.

Just trying to keep the world up information of the alternative practices. Shealyhealy (talk) 03:55, 11 November 2009 (UTC)


Hi Chuckiesdad,

I have reviews the post and added/removing some content based on suggested Wikipedia guidelines. The page is pretty clean now. We have a lot of interesting concepts to communicate on this page, but I am going to hold on to your feedback. Our user community is growing and many suggested to put up a Wikipedia page. I would appreciate any pointers.

See salt - speedy declined[edit]

I declined the speedy deletion you requested on this article. Whilst it has plenty of problems it is not an "obvious" hoax. Was also a disputed PROD which procludes speed so I've nominated it for AFD - Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/See salt Best, Nancy talk 07:27, 22 November 2009 (UTC)

Re: User talk:[edit]

Yeah, I'm on top of it; I've been blocking the involved IPs. Let me know if you see any similar attacks at other pages. I don't think this is quite random. —C.Fred (talk) 03:24, 23 November 2009 (UTC)

Arthur Janov[edit]

Vivian Janov, his first wife, was the co-founder of the Primal Institute and has been the Director of the Primal Institute for a few decades. His daughter, Ellen Janov, recorded an album and a single and co-starred in The Horse in the Gray Flannel Suit. His second wife, Dr. France Janov was the Co-Director of the European Primal Institute and is currently the Co-Director of the Primal Center in Santa Monica. She is also the translator of Janov's books into French. Primal Therapy is a well-known psychotherapy with an important history. Those who are a part of that history are well-known, not only in the Primal Community, but as a part of an entire movement. Some names connected to Freud were only well-known because of their connection to Freud. It is also important to Janov's history that his wives and children were involved. Freud's family are listed in his biography at Wikipedia. —Daviddaniel37 (talk) 11:16, 29 November 2009 (UTC)

  • As WP:BLPNAME states, "Consider carefully whether significant value is added to an article by including the names of private, living individuals such as family members of the subject of a biographical article. There is a presumption against using the names of such individuals, even if the names have already appeared in the media, where they are not in themselves sufficiently notable for a Wikipedia article." When these family members are notable enough to have their own Wiki articles, they will be notable enough to include in Arthur Janov. That hasn't happened yet. Regards, Chuckiesdad/Talk/Contribs 03:36, 30 November 2009 (UTC)


I really could use your help. You sent me at least ewo notes to help me. Yet, I am not sure where to begin making the corrections. Additionally, I am not sure this is where to contact you.

Mason Proffit photo ID[edit]

No offense taken. It's a fair question. I took those pictures when MP played my school, (Coe College), in 1971. Out of a dozen or so photos, those two seemed the best for the article. After 39 years I assumed that the guitar player in question was Terry Talbot. The article also mentions that John Talbot played banjo so I put that photo in there as well. What I suggest is to revert these anonymous edits and invite the IP editor to offer further proof of identity. I think we both know how easy it is for poseurs to monkey with an article for whatever reasons. I will also bring this matter up on the MP talk page. Cheers! --Phyllis1753 (talk) 14:04, 5 January 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for moving his page along a little further. Curiosity prompts me to ask how come the Field Recorders' Collective link disappeared. Was that an oops, or is that not considered a reliable site? __ Just plain Bill (talk) 17:06, 13 March 2010 (UTC)

Karen Hughes revert?[edit]


Contributor seems to have had some fun with the Karen Hughes article. I'm not really part of the Wikipedia family myself, but thought I'd let you know because you previously contributed to that article.

Orphaned non-free image File:RAK Records label.JPG[edit]


Thanks for uploading File:RAK Records label.JPG. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. -- ТимофейЛееСуда. 19:11, 27 October 2013 (UTC)
