Page histories[edit]

Hi Coolgamer. You marked Mistrial for a move to wictionary[1]. I just came across it randomly. I realised that actually what had happened was that a previous anon user had blanked the page[2]. I think that if you look at the current version you will agree that it's actually worth keeping this for expansion. There are a number of people going around vandalising pages. If you come across a page which is too short then it's often worth checking the history (actually that's always true..some vandalism is done quiet subtly). If you still think this needs to be moved then put the note in again and we'll discuss.

All the best Mozzerati 21:48, 2005 Jan 6 (UTC)

good catch[edit]

thanks for that, I guess at that point I was pretty much on auto-drive after about 20-ish articles.

Copyvios[edit]

Just because a website has identical text as one of our articles doesn't mean our article is a copyvio. In The 158-Pound Marriage the website you link to actually says at the bottom of the page that it was a copy of our article! Generally for articles created a long time ago, it's pretty safe to assume they are not copyvios. Theresa Knott (ask the rotten) 19:21, 14 Mar 2005 (UTC)

  • Ack! I missed that... thanks for the heads-up. Coolgamer 21:43, 9 January 2006 (UTC)

Terri Schiavo[edit]

I reviewed your edits on the Terri Schiavo article. Congradulations on your restraint. I completely understand the impulse. I left the sentences added about Iyer because whether they added or detracted might be a toss-up. Anyway, my compliments and good hunting.--ghost 02:52, 27 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Anarcho-capitalism[edit]

Hey there coolgamer, im really thankful for the edits you added to Grand Theft Auto 3 soundtrack, and also, you seem like a pretty good person to have around the 'pedia. I just wanted to correct something on your userpage: "anarco-capitalism" is actually spelled with an h, as in "anarcho-capitalism", but good for you on your beliefs of individuality! Just thought I'd let you know, mysekurity 21:21, 23 Jun 2005 (UTC)

  • Thanks for the compliments, but I never edited that page. Perhaps you're thinking of another gaming page that I edited? And thanks for catching my spelling error... that's what I get for typing too fast. Coolgamer 20:47, 10 January 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for the Barnstar[edit]

Thank you so much for the barnstar, I try to be nice to everyone I meet, and I need to edit more. :) --Flockmeal June 30, 2005 00:54 (UTC)

Suicide blonde[edit]

  • I have rewritten this article so that it is about the INXS song. I would be grateful if you could have a look at it. Capitalistroadster 16:39, 14 October 2005 (UTC)
    • Sweet Jimbo! You've more then saved this article from deletion! When I saw it, I changed my vote for deletion right away. Good work! Coolgamer 20:49, 10 January 2006 (UTC)

Trainwreck (band) article[edit]

I have rewritten this article to establish the notability of this band as per WP:music. Currently, it meets two criteria in having a notable member in Kyle Gass of Tenacious D and having completed a national tour. They have released a live album distributed through Epic/Sony and are working on a sudio album with Gass and John King of the Dust Brothers producing. I would be grateful if you could take a look. Capitalistroadster 01:16, 22 October 2005 (UTC)


Monoxide Child image[edit]

You recently tagged the image Image:Paulmonoxide.jpg as being in need of cleanup. Could you specify in what way it should be improved? –Mysid 12:40, 14 December 2005 (UTC)

  • Late addition to the talk page- your issues have been addressed, and my reasons for listing said image are now in the images talk page. Coolgamer 21:41, 9 January 2006 (UTC)

Userboxes[edit]

Aloha! Looking back over previous Help Desk questions I noticed you were having some trouble with the table formatting. I've fixed the code, and shifted the order of some of them for aesthetic purposes (ie: Avoiding unsightly gaps.) If there's a different format you'd prefer, or if you need any other help, just let me know! GeeJo (t) (c)  01:58, 22 January 2006 (UTC)

Hi! I edited the Bipolar userbox and created a second userbox for Type II. Right now, you're showing Type I. If you are Type II you may want to change the userbox to USER BIPOLAR2. Thanks! CenozoicEra 01:05, 23 January 2006 (UTC)


Image Tagging Image:Firerages.jpeg[edit]

Warning sign
This image may be deleted.

Thanks for uploading Image:Firerages.jpeg. I notice the image page currently doesn't specify who created the image, so the copyright status is therefore unclear. If you have not created the image yourself then you need to argue that we have the right to use the image on Wikipedia (see copyright tagging below). If you have not created the image yourself then you should also specify where you found it, i.e., in most cases link to the website where you got it, and the terms of use for content from that page.

If the image also doesn't have a copyright tag then you must also add one. If you created/took the picture then you can use {{GFDL}} to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the image qualifies as fair use, please read fair use, and then use a tag such as {{Non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair_use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other images, please check that you have specified their source and copyright tagged them, too. You can find a list of image pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any unsourced and untagged images will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Agnte 16:01, 29 January 2006 (UTC)

Image Tagging Image:Morocca.jpg[edit]

With regards to Image:Morocca.jpg, the nosource tag stated that a source should be given so that others may verify copyright status. When you changed the tag, you did not provide a source for the image for others to verify its status. Therefore, the tagging was reverted. The message on the nosource tag is directed at the uploader. It is his or her responsibility to follow up. - Slo-mo 01:33, 8 February 2006 (UTC)

giggle[edit]

I think you have more userboxes on your page than I do ;) - nathanrdotcom (TalkContribs) 22:08, 20 February 2006 (UTC)

WP:DRV[edit]

Your comment on Wikipedia:Deletion review/Userbox debates, in which you compare the activities of a few sysops on the site to the deaths of millions under the Nazis, is completely inappropriate, regardless of what one thinks of the present situation. I urge you to strike it out and make an apology. Mackensen (talk) 12:11, 21 February 2006 (UTC)

First off, I just noticed that my German was off, so I'm not really saying anything. Second, sieg heil: The German-English translation means "hail victory". The Nazi meaning is "we will win". I believe we WILL win our fight to keep the userboxes. At the rate the deletions are going, this IS, to me, a war. Coolgamer 17:56, 21 February 2006 (UTC)
Leider verstehen Sie mich nicht. Für Sie zu sagen, dass Sie glauben, dass Sie wie die Nazis gewinnen, ist unerhört. Meinten Sie es wirklich?
My German may also be off, as I've not lived there for a few years, but what I said, roughly, is: Unfortunately you didn't understand me. For you to say that you believe you'll win (implying your meaning is similar to the common Nazi exhortation), is unheard of. Do you really mean that? Mackensen (talk) 18:35, 21 February 2006 (UTC)
No, I don't mean it in the same context. It's so often used that way it's what you think of, though. I did it on purpose in an attempt to convey sarcastic disapproval towards not only the rapid deletion, but the "war" attitude. Seriously, it's Wikipedia, and we're all fighting each other. Sarcasm does not commit to text well, and I've changed most of my old text to different statements. Coolgamer 18:41, 21 February 2006 (UTC)

Userbox deletion[edit]

Hi Coolgamer,

I'm glad you support userboxes and appreciate your support. However, if you list on Tfd, make sure it's a serious one, in case it IS accidently deleted, such as {{User nocol}}. Plus, it may look hypocritical on our part. Just keep that in mind the next time you Tfd something.

Now on April Fool's Day, that's a different story.(Well at least until everyone sees what I'm cooking up. Heh heh heh...) --D-Day Somebody talk to me. Please somebody! Anybody! 21:10, 21 February 2006 (UTC)

Good job nominating the nocol box for deletion. I get so mad every time I here some little boy say I like blue, pink is for girls. The color sexism needs to stop.--God of War 20:45, 24 February 2006 (UTC)

Your comments[edit]

I'm entirely unsure why you are angry with me about, and I feel that you've very much misjudged me.

"What if we don't? Like you just said, Jimbo, good buddy, you'll just mass delete them if we don't bend to your will. Who cares, right?"

I did not say that I would mass delete userboxes, and I have very much avoided saying anything to give the impression that people should "bend to my will" -- whatever that means.

I have tried very hard to remain careful, measured, neutral, and to ask everyone to follow a slow, thoughtful, loving path.

I am sorry that you have perceived things differently, and if you have any concrete suggestions about how I could help at this point, I am happy to hear them.

--Jimbo Wales 10:28, 25 February 2006 (UTC)

conditional support[edit]

Check out my "Conditional Support" entry on the userbox poll page. I'm curious to see what you think.    GUÐSÞEGN   – UTEX – 20:05, 2 March 2006 (UTC)

Userboxes.[edit]

I like those userboxes on your page (the ones about userboxes/admins/etc). I'm going to use them too. Thanks. - 20px Flag of Ontario.svg Flag of Canada.svg nathanrdotcom (TCW) 03:35, 19 March 2006 (UTC)

Recent addition to your userpage[edit]

Hi. Could you possibly consider removing that "friends and foes" section you recently added to your userpage..? It looks a little like a personal attack. -ZeroTalk 17:40, 30 March 2006 (UTC)

... I might possibly consider it in the future, theoretically. Coolgamer 17:45, 30 March 2006 (UTC)

Stop trolling[edit]

I'm asking you nicely. --Doc ask? 22:23, 30 March 2006 (UTC)

I'm hardly trolling, seeing as you already have two other abusive admin barnstar awards that you've kept on your page, and seem to have no issue with. Enlighten me as to how my award bestowed to you is any worse? Coolgamer 22:40, 30 March 2006 (UTC)

Please do not add trolling images to my userpage. It is vandalism. You will be blocked. Goodnight. --Doc ask? 23:00, 30 March 2006 (UTC)

Ooh, looks like somebody's got a case of the Mondays! Coolgamer 01:12, 31 March 2006 (UTC)

May userbox policy poll[edit]

Hi. You're a supporter of userboxes, and there's currently a policy poll going on about userboxes that might solve the speedy deletion issue. I encourage you to vote if you haven't already. Thank you. Dtm142 21:18, 25 May 2006 (UTC)

True Love Game Sequel[edit]

Hi Coolgamer. I think it was you who added the section on the 'True Love' game that a demo for the sequel was released but is rare. If you are able to, I was hoping you could contact me with where to get it from. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks! --Rebound 16:47, 24 July 2006 (UTC)

Userbox barnstar?[edit]

Hello! I noticed you gave me a userbox barnstar several months ago. I was wondering what it's for? I do not recall ever making a contribution to the userbox wikiproject. >Radiant< 21:18, 4 September 2006 (UTC)

  • Then I must conclude you were mistaking me for somebody else. >Radiant< 16:38, 5 September 2006 (UTC)
    • I disagree with the ideas that (1) my blanking the page had anything to do with userbox deletion, and (2) my blanking the page warrants a barnstar. Simply put, I do not accept this reward, and will not be considered an important figure for either side in this feud. Let's drop the issue. >Radiant< 20:46, 5 September 2006 (UTC)

Blaming Vandalism On Wrong User[edit]

When you reverted the edit on Steve Irvin, you actually blamed on me that I made that edit. Well, let me tell you, I did not make that edit, I was trying to revert that edit beacause a another user tried to vandalize that article. You are supposted to be blaming the user Shortcirkit for that, NOT ME. By the way, here is the link to the edit that he made, thanks.--Jsalims 22:17, 6 September 2006 (UTC)

User talk:Essjay[edit]

You can't just paste from the edit conflict box, or you are undoing others comments. You need to copy only your comment, and then add it. Prodego talk 01:26, 2 March 2007 (UTC) Yes what he said. You are erasing others comments and another time will be considered vandalism. Add your comments by adding them not by taking away others. Please. --Xiahou 01:28, 2 March 2007 (UTC) My comments were erased by HIS edits. Coolgamer 01:28, 2 March 2007 (UTC)

You mean this? That is completely inappropriate for many reasons, under WP:NPA for example. Prodego talk 01:29, 2 March 2007 (UTC)
Please stop. If you continue to make personal attacks on other people, you will be blocked for disruption. Comment on content, not on other contributors or people. Thank you. PTO 01:31, 2 March 2007 (UTC)
Attack? I'm confused, as I was being serious. Coolgamer 01:32, 2 March 2007 (UTC)
You can not attack another editor, you can provide constructive criticism, but not attack them. See WP:NPA. Prodego talk 01:33, 2 March 2007 (UTC)
(edit conflict)Your note had a sarcastic undertone, which sounded very rude. This is probably due to the aspie effect, but hey...who knows? I'm sorry. (I've got it too...) PTO 01:35, 2 March 2007 (UTC)
Again with the attack stuff. I never cursed or argued with him. To me, it was a simple polite invitation for a cozy cup of tea. I was thinking peppermint, but if he prefers traditional, that's fine. The queen will be most disappointed if he can't attend, however. Coolgamer 01:36, 2 March 2007 (UTC)

On a side note, I remember the days when humour was totally okay in comments. Even jagged humour. Coolgamer 01:39, 2 March 2007 (UTC)

Informal mediation[edit]

Wikipedia:Mediation_Cabal/Cases/2006-12-21_Street_Fighter_character_articles has been reopened by request. Please join in the discussion so we can finalize a compromise acceptable to all parties. Vassyana 22:27, 19 March 2007 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Mediation Cabal/Cases/2006-12-21 Street Fighter character articles has been closed. When reopened, a clear strong consensus was displayed, with very few and limited objections to the consensus. Unanimous assent is not required for consensus. A supermajority supports the previous compromise and is unwilling to further accomodate the dissenting view. Therefore, I have closed the mediation accordingly. If you have any questions, comments or concerns, you may address them on my talk page. Vassyana 17:02, 26 March 2007 (UTC)

Qian Zhijun[edit]

An article that you have expressed interest in, Qian Zhijun, has been listed by me for deletion. If you are interested in the deletion discussion, please participate by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Qian Zhijun. Thanks. ALTON .ıl 23:58, 4 May 2007 (UTC)

You commented on Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Qian Zhijun. It has been closed early after a confusing and IMO unfortunate sequence of events. I have now listed it on Deletion Review. You may wish to express your views there. DES (talk) 01:20, 13 May 2007 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use Image:Frolicbio1.jpg[edit]

Replaceable fair use

Thanks for uploading Image:Frolicbio1.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) 17:26, 16 December 2007 (UTC)

Re:Watch it..[edit]

Coolgamer, it was about your talk page that increased tensions. Not because you had a different opinion than mines. Keep in mind that the "copyrighted images" issue may be false, however, as I was scanning through your talk page, it appeared that you were doing something like that. And keep in mind that I don't harass, unless I have been angered by the multiple negative responses simultaneously, which have almost no control over since I suffer from psychological disorders. If you are trying to get me blocked, you are getting yourself wrong. A few months ago, I have turned in a harassment report. A real harassment. The user was Prada de Lulz or something. If you don't believe me, check and ask. Thank you. A please keep in mind that I haven't edited on the talk page you are talking about recently. Prowikipedians (talk) 08:44, 31 May 2008 (UTC)

I'm not even posting threats on your page. If you believe I'm using this account as a vandalism-only account, check my edits. I'm very positive that all of my edits were good-faith edits. Period. Prowikipedians (talk) 07:45, 3 June 2008 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with Image:Logotbyte.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Logotbyte.jpg. 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) 08:29, 19 September 2008 (UTC)

Footage[edit]

But as I said at WT:FOOTY that is overruled by WP:ELNEVER. The footage is in breach of YTV copyright. Peanut4 (talk) 00:07, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

I wouldn't object to a still image of the event as long as it passes the rules for images. I do intend to take this to FAC. Any non-free image will get picked up there anyway.
As for the reasons for the footage, I think you ought to take that up with the correct authorities rather than put it here. West Yorkshire Fire Service, YTV, the Popplewell inquiry, councillors and politicians, at the very least, agree the footage should not be released and is instead only used for fire training.

Orphaned non-free image File:Vic Viper game article.png[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Vic Viper game article.png. 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 orphaned, meaning that it is 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).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of "file" pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box.

Better source request for File:Rmaddison.jpg[edit]

Thanks for your upload to Wikipedia:

You provided a source, but it is difficult for other users to examine the copyright status of the image because the source is incomplete. Please consider clarifying the exact source so that the copyright status may be checked more easily. It is best to specify the exact Web page where you found the image, rather than only giving the source domain or the URL of the image file itself.

RfC: Should a separate article on the dried flowers and leaves variant of the Cannabis plant be made?[edit]

Talk:Cannabis (drug)#RFC: Should the section about the dried whole-flower-and-leaf preparation have its own article? If you have the time, would you please analyse my request, as you interested in our Cannabis project. Do you think there should be a separate section for this topic? მაLiphradicusEpicusთე 21:48, 1 May 2014 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Escape from the Everyday[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Escape from the Everyday requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A9 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a musical recording which does not indicate why its subject is important or significant, and where the artist's article has never existed, has been deleted or is eligible for deletion itself. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for music.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator, or if you have already done so, you can place a request here.

As an editor concerned in this dispute, you are invited to participate in the mediation.

After reviewing the request page, the formal mediation policy, and the guide to formal mediation, please indicate in the "party agreement" section whether you agree to participate. Because requests must be responded to by the Mediation Committee within seven days, please respond to the request by 25 March 2018.
