Smallpox thing[edit]

I don't know how to sign, but this is about the smallpox thing you edited---it was not vandalism. Read the source itself--it only makes passing reference to smallpox as a weapon against the Indians (and its source is an un-cited paper about the need for vaccination written in 1945) is a report on the modern usage of smallpox as a weapon. That being said, there is no credible evidence of smallpox blankets...some blankets may have been given to Indians with smallpox on them, but only as larger trades, but there is no hard evidence of this either.

I made a discussion in the discussion page. Did you see it? Either way I removed it again because it is not true. A section about unsubstantiated rumors of this happening could be put in, but I do not want to write it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:17, 13 February 2008 (UTC)[edit]

Wow that was quick! If you don't believe that the link from the Hen Wlad Fy'Nhadau page is sufficient reason to reinstate the page, then I suggest you remove the link. I though the idea was to eliminate dead links? Iwanymmherth (talk) 23:48, 8 February 2008 (UTC)

Assuming Good Faith.[edit]

I believe that I made an error in judgment regarding your intentions on Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/Wilmington_Montessori_School. I would like to apologize for that. I began my first wiki entry (for WMS) by viewing most of the other articles for sister schools in the Mid-Atlantic region. At the time, I was unaware of WP:WAX and WP:N, as such, my first entries mirrored many of those articles and did not carry much weight for notability even though I was providing as much or more information than other representative schools (again, unaware of WP:WAX). Although I would have preferred a more cordial, initial comment on the lines of "not notable due to xxx", I have come to believe that your intent is to ensure quality WP content.

Since that time, I have been working to provide better sources for notability. Whether or not you agree with my opinion and those of other editors, I would still like to request that you review how the article currently stands along with the additional comments on the AfD and the article talk page.

Regards. Daddy.twins (talk) 21:20, 4 February 2008 (UTC)

Randy Richards Article[edit]

The article contains the type of references you describe, citing issue dates and name of articles/newspapers. And someone, somewhere - indeed several someones - did find them, and reported this on the article's Talk page. So how do I improve these properly cited, independently verified, offline references? Thanks in advance. Malakai Joe (talk) 21:44, 8 February 2008 (UTC)

I have moved the article to (scroll down to "TV Appearances & Community Activism") as suggested. Please check the references and let me know how I can improve, as previously noted. Malakai Joe (talk) 23:44, 8 February 2008 (UTC)

Thanks, but you said the reference didn't have to be online. Both newspapers are very large, established newspapers, but they do not archive all (or apparently any) their articles online. The references I posted refer to specific dates and names of the articles, but not page numbers. I borrowed clips of the articles in question, and neither had page numbers on them. Malakai Joe (talk) 23:55, 8 February 2008 (UTC)

Okay, I will try and get the exact dates. I am not familiar with Locus - what is that? Malakai Joe (talk) 23:57, 8 February 2008 (UTC)

Are you saying that if I can find page numbers, the references would be good enough to get the article reinstated? The reason I ask, is that it may take a protracted effort, possibly even costing money. I want to know if its worth it. Malakai Joe (talk) 00:10, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

Not that I am aware of, but let's say I find one. Even if I get the exact dates and page numbers, I still can't post the articles online because of copyright issues. Malakai Joe (talk) 00:14, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

True, but we already had local independent verification on the Talk page of the Randy Richards article (unless you buy the argument that they were all the author, and he is a major hacker). The odds of an established Wikipedia editor (provided we could find a local one) taking the time and effort to do that kind of research seems "slim to none", especially when its not a guarantee of reinstatement. Malakai Joe (talk) 00:19, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

Thanks, I'll give it a shot. But whoever helps will likely get accused of being a puppet. Because a lot of the citations are offline, I don't think any amount of evidence will be good enough for these people. Malakai Joe (talk) 00:25, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

I was thinking more along the lines of the helping editor being accused of being a Meatpuppet. Mr. Richards is very popular locally. Its not hard to imagine these haters claiming he would do it. They've made worse, more bizarre accusations. Malakai Joe (talk) 00:35, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

Don't worry about that till the time comes. Corvus cornixtalk 00:36, 9 February 2008 (UTC)


Hey, Corvus, we go back a long way. Why on earth are you not an admin? You have the track record, the right attitude, the commitment and the respect of your colleagues. You would walk it and be a great admin. Why not go for it? --Rodhullandemu (Talk) 03:31, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for your congratulations, it's no big deal yet, I am easing myself into the new role. I still think you'd make a great admin. OK, one week of intense scrutiny can be stressful, but just look at my RfA; it generated a WP:SSP, WP:CU & an ArbCom case. That was bizarre and stressful, but I had good support from people I had never seen before. If you ever want to go for it, you can count on my support; you have nothing to worry about. Until then, we are losing a potentially great admin. Regards, --Rodhullandemu (Talk) 04:09, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

Patriots Jet Team[edit]

Hi, CC! This actually sounds like a pretty notable group. I'd like to slap a construction template on it for the time being in hopes that it's for real and that I can find sufficient sources to back up the claim. I agree that it's a mess at present, but I'm just leaving work and it'll be a long time before I can log back on. Many thanks for the good NPP work you do. --PMDrive1061 (talk) 04:18, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

  • You got it. It may even be a hoax for all I know. If I can't find any suitable sources or if it's bogus, I'll put the speedy back on it. Talk to ya later; heading for home. --PMDrive1061 (talk) 04:21, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

When did you compete on Jeopardy?[edit]

When did you try out on Jeopardy!? I saw that you were a contestant. Just curious. Chris (talk) 03:48, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

I tried out for the 1991 Teen Tournament though it would have been for the 1991 College Tournament since I was a high school senior in May 1990 when I took the test in Chicago. I did not survive first cut though I knew a person who made it all the way to the semifinal of the 1991 Teen Tournament, Jim Paulsak (now deceased) from Dorman HS in Spartanburg, SC. Another person I met and competed against (though not in an actual tournament) was Eric Newhouse, the 1989 Teen Tournament champion from either West Sioux City HS or East Sioux City HS in Sioux City, IA. The high school I was with absolutely hammered Newhouse's high school in a scrimmage match while at that tournament. Palusak was a good guy while Newhouse was a complete jerk, IMO.

Warped Tour 2008[edit]

Thank you for reverting the vandalism but please do not remove sourced material again. Thank you. DX927 (talk) 06:08, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

First of all, yes they are. Secondly, half of it is from the official Warped Tour Myspace. Thus the information is in fact reliable. You can stop reverting it now. Thanks. DX927 (talk) 06:11, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

I suggest you move on. We've been doing this for years now and it's been going fine. DX927 (talk) 06:15, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

"WE" meaning myself and a few others. I don't see how hard that is to understand. I'm done discussing this. DX927 (talk) 06:21, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

A bit too aggressive with BLP, perhaps[edit]

I'm a bit concerned by your edit to the Ref Desk here, where you removed a comment by an anonymous IP citing BLP concerns. The issue is now being discussed at Wikipedia talk:Reference desk#Now we're not allowed to give opinions on living people when asked?.

As an aside, could you make an effort to use edit summaries for substantial edits like that one? TenOfAllTrades(talk) 18:13, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

Re: Apology[edit]

I accept the apology but I do not regret anything that I said last night. You went above and beyond what was needed to try and prove me wrong and got me blocked for absolutely no reason when I had already explained what I meant by "we." Especially when it was obvious that you didn't care about the subject matter at all, just whether you were right or not. The fact of the matter is that page gets vandalized A LOT, in fact I haven't touched it since last night and it's been hit around 5 times but I'm truly at the point where I don't care anymore because anything I'm going to change back is going to be reverted because somehow citing something from a band's official Myspace page (especially when most bands don't even bother with websites anymore because they use that as a source for all their news) isn't a reliable source. You would have realized that had you actually inspected the sources instead of acting without research. I know you acted without researching it first because you removed the non-Myspace sources as well. But I'm done arguing that fact and I'm moving on. DX927 (talk) 21:51, 10 February 2008 (UTC)


Sorry about the accidental nominations for deletion. I should have checked the history before doing the nom. I was in the process of reverting to the proper version when the edit-conflict window popped up showing that you had reverted me. I'm sorry, and I won't do that again.

cheap shot[edit]

Wikipedia:Administrators'_noticeboard/Incidents#User:Mctrain. Just saw your nice little shot at me there. I did read the material. at the time, it sure looked like he had the sources to back up much of what he'd said. As to me saying it should stick around, no, my suggestion was that the material be moved and reworked, not preserved as is. Later, after more of the evidence of hoaxing was made transparent, I changed my vote. Good to see that either way, i'm in trouble. Please don't misrepresent me like that again. ThuranX (talk) 00:29, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Apology accepted, and I toned down the vitriol above. It's been a long day on and off wiki, and I probably shouldn't have even brought it up, but I really was acting in good faith, i'd read through things, you'll note i even counted the sources. That not everyone's up on this hoaxster isn't ground to assume those who AGF and support are fools, though. anyways, all good by me now. Have a good one. ThuranX (talk) 02:09, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

AfD nomination of Raveau[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

An editor has nominated Raveau, an article on which you have worked or that you created, for deletion. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also "What Wikipedia is not").

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Raveau and please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 15:00, 20 February 2008 (UTC)

WFAL is not my wiki article, I didn't hurt it, I actually added in and also a link- therefore it has a reference and citation.

  • I provided a link for reference purposes so how do the cleanup boxes get removed without it being considered vandalism...
Just make sure you're not reverting to a version where someone else removed them..or..simply do not remove the templates at the top of the page when you click edit. Wisdom89 (T / C) 22:29, 20 February 2008 (UTC)
  • I'm new at this, so If I can find a newspaper article on the radio station and other objective outside link, that would work. I'm not trying to be a vandal, I want wiki to have quality info too.Sbkbg (talk
  • I'll find some other sources for the WFAL page. I don't like those cleanup things because I feel it ruins crediblity. Sorry for deleteing them, I thought I could because I thought I fixed the citation issues.Sbkbg (talk

cool I'll work on bringing it up to standards. I have located at put up a few outside sources.--Sbkbg (talk) 00:30, 21 February 2008 (UTC)

Vitus again[edit]

Yes, you did refute his existence, you just changed your tune now. He was never part of those bogus frat groups, that is where the whole hoax biz started, placing his name into that to make him look bad. Also there is some hacker in the works that is confussing posts- that is their game, and I was able to call him/her/them for that- I know because what was posted when I was blocked- they got to be from the Midwest and know Vitus personally, they gottahave some issues with the guy. Also, you even found Gilbert listed on an ebay site- you know those lithos are by him- and no one gets lithos without being in demand- lithos are expensive to make- you have to carve a whole stone- and it isn't worth the cost for a publishing company to do if the artist is not notable- it is just like being a published author- if you want to go around and limit valid knowledge for everyone- you aren't doing anything good. Also, why is thorp school flagged, how many articles are out ther about schools of no importance, and there is plenty of info out there to note it a a magnet schoool for Chicago. So this is what I mean Covus, bogus behavior, fingers are pointed, peoples reputations are ruined, and the witch hunts begin.Mctrain (talk) 23:17, 20 February 2008 (UTC)

You should also note, that asking for evidence from me about those frat group's does not make sense, I was not invoved with those frat group writings, in fact, I only learned about them after people brought them up, and I checked the background- I could care less about frat boys, never written about them. I'm an ex-surfer, with a full history of editing surfing/skateboarding topics, frats are not my cup of tea.Mctrain (talk) 23:32, 20 February 2008 (UTC)

Julian Z. Gilbert[edit]

Yo, Crow. I'll say my piece in the AfD when I get home from work. If I may be so bold as to offer some advice: It's probably not a good idea to engage with Mctrain by responding to his various comments in the AfD. It looks rather unseemly and just encourages him to comment even more. With regard to the images (which are off topic in the AfD, so that discussion of them should probably be dropped there), the crucial points seem to me to be that (1) whether or not the uploader was the son of JZG, he never released the images under an acceptable free license—in fact, the captions he attached to them explicitly reserve all reproduction rights to himself and other JZG heirs—and (2) the images themselves were clearly copied from EBay and thus were not his to upload, even if he claims rights to the original works. Deor (talk) 23:53, 20 February 2008 (UTC)

  • First off, why is it "unseemly" to respond to me? Second, maybee the ebay seller is attached to Joel Gilbert?Mctrain (talk) 00:12, 21 February 2008 (UTC)

Patrolling pages and tagging with CSD[edit]

Hi there, in case you didn't know, there is a feature called patrolled pages. After you tag an article for speedy deletion, you should mark it as patrolled so other editors don't waste their time re-reviewing it. Thanks Shootthedevgru (talk) 00:51, 21 February 2008 (UTC)

Yes, i know that some people will let junk through, but at least for new articles, if you mark them for speedy deletion then also mark as patrolled, it'll help other editors greatly. Shootthedevgru (talk) 00:57, 21 February 2008 (UTC)

Executive disambig[edit]

"I was reverting vandalism, and that was part of the edits by the vandal. But an article about a coat in one episode of a sitcom doesn't seem a likely article. Corvus cornixtalk 17:57, 21 February 2008 (UTC)"
Yeah I was pondering that; Is it valuable to have entries on a disambig page that don't actually have links to the word in question? I decided that my opinion is, "Yes, it's valuable". Even though the Executive (raincoat) was not actually a link, the mention of it could be the answer to someone's question. I understand that we're only being encyclopedic and not omniscient and all-inclusive, and yet part of me just doesn't want to let factoids like that escape. Do you know of any WP guidelines for disambiguation pages BTW? Eleven even (talk) 18:15, 21 February 2008 (UTC)

Your recent edits[edit]

Hi there. In case you didn't know, when you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion, you should sign your posts by typing four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment. On many keyboards, the tilde is entered by holding the Shift key, and pressing the key with the tilde pictured. You may also click on the signature button Button sig.png located above the edit window. This will automatically insert a signature with your name and the time you posted the comment. This information is useful because other editors will be able to tell who said what, and when. Thank you! --SineBot (talk) 18:57, 21 February 2008 (UTC)

Now see this, the French equivalent Basically I see it that english wikipedia is missing 30,000 articles like this which I think eventually would be enormously beneficial. They should have been started years ago -surprised they weren't but they should a tleast be started!! I'm past the half way mark in total now anyway! ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 00:54, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

Lol I;m only too aware of this. The other day I added some infoboxes and images to places like Luang Prabang in Laos. At present we only have about 10 articles on towns in that country yet there are over 10,000 that exist. I;ve created over 100 missing locator maps so we can have push pin maps for any settlement in every country in the world. If wikipedia is to be taken seriously as thr "greatest source" then it needs to think about seriously thinking about how to achieve this for each country -nothing is more important than real world content, rather than a list of pokemon or list of fictional worlds in some sci series ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 21:37, 21 February 2008 (UTC)

You're right, I should have put some explanation in the edit summary.

Declining speedies[edit]

I'm sorry if you think it's rude but I have never sent notices to taggers and I know no admin that does.

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of retired professional American football runningbacks[edit]

This is a rather meaningless post, as I'm sure that you'll see it there anyway, about the "personal attack attempt" that you removed. I made the comment small because the way that Phbasketball wrote that comment looked horrible and I wanted to make sure that the closing admin wouldn't think of it as a double-vote. Second, I wasn't in no way condoning the attack. I wasn't even sure what to make of it and thought better to not remove it or say anything about it. It was such a weak attempt at a personal attack, in my opinion, that I couldn't even make the call as to whether it was one or not.

So my "<small>-ing of the text was simply to protect you from a "double vote" (which you could've easily defended yourself from, anyway) and wasn't condoning the actual comment. Thought you should know that. Ksy92003 (talk) 14:06, 2 March 2008 (UTC)

Please explain[edit]

Could u kindly explain your action on this? Removing reproduced articles when it was use for the purpose of discussion & verification earlier (as per WP:FACT patrols) is one thing, but removing its link pointing to the history log that can be easily seen & traced is another matter. Being a free-lance history researcher and feature writer with access to various official sources, I'm well aware of the relevant copyright/IP issues, acceptable use & its enforcement. Pse give me a satisfactory answer or revert your action soon. -- Aldwinteo (talk) 01:41, 9 March 2008 (UTC)

At times, one should exercise discretion & follow the 'spirit' & not just the 'letter' on any issues. (See one of the cases I brought up to an Admin previously). The reproduced ST articles were included in the discussion in response by the deletist camp asking for credible third party references earlier. As u are an experienced editor here, I would like to hear from u:
  • On how would u response otherwise as per the context of the discussion earlier?
  • Constructive advice or follow-up in ending this on-going edit warring once & for all for the common good of Wikipedia?
-- Aldwinteo (talk) 02:14, 10 March 2008 (UTC)

Similarly speaking, I'll assume good faith on this case but do appreciate if you could inform the user concerned on their talkpage, instead of removing any content of their discussion first (Pse be mindful of the Law of Karma). Being a member of WP:FACT, I will continue to verify & to provide the necessary extracts (in context or in full) wherever I can, if requested by the community in any such disputes. Moving forward, I hope u can help to monitor the mentioned article, & focus your attention more on the antics of the vandals/trolls/POV pushers instead of bona fide users during your patrols in future. Thank you. -- Aldwinteo (talk) 02:14, 11 March 2008 (UTC)

about Scarlett Keeling case[edit]

I would like to explain my action regarding Scarlett Keeling case. While I agree with your concerns and agree that it should be deleted, I simply do not see how it meets any criteria for speedy deletion. It was not made "to primarily disparage its subject", nor can I see how it violate wp:blp at all. Speeding "news articles" sets a bad precedence as there is no clear line between what new stories deserve articles and which do not.

Ima Hogg photo[edit]

I assume that image would be considered a work made for hire (i.e. the family commissioned the photograph) which would mean the copyright endures for a term of 95 years from the year of its first publication, or a term of 120 years from the year of its creation, whichever expires first. The earliest proof of publication we have is 1984 (Karanacs’ book), which would put us at 2079. Alternatively, creation date of 1890 puts us at 2010. Unless we can find author information or other publishing information, I’m not comfortable assuming it’s PD (although it likely is); we have two years to go.

Hey Corvus. The 3RR is still open. Do you have an opinion whether the article should be semi-protected? Most IP changes appear to be POV warriors, though not plain vandalism. EdJohnston (talk) 01:55, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

"upright" for image[edit]

The "upright" tag takes into consideration the width and the height of an image rather than just the width, and is designed for images with a "portrait" orientation. You can read about it (but not much more) at WP:EIS. Compare Governor Hogg's image here with this one. — Bellhalla (talk) 03:17, 31 March 2008 (UTC)


I'm seeing the little box on your userpage saying your Not an admin, but I'm not seeing hte box that says you don't want to be one. I've seen you around a bit, you've got a clean log, more edits than me, so I'm wondering if you'd be interested in a nom? If you could give me a day or two to bang out a detailed nom, I think you'd be great with a mop. MBisanz talk 17:38, 31 March 2008 (UTC)
