The importance of a friendly greeting

Hello and welcome to my talk page. If you want to start a new conversation, please click "New section" at the top of this page. I keep the comments that follow from July and August of 2009 readily visible, because these friendly words of greeting made me feel welcome here on Wikipedia when I first started editing.

Please offer your thoughts

I would appreciate comments and suggestions on any contributions I make. I am learning.Cullen328 (talk) 03:22, 3 July 2009 (UTC)

Nice work on Jules Eichorn. He's been needing an article for a while.   Will Beback  talk  06:28, 31 July 2009 (UTC)
If I may suggest, now that you've posted the Eichorn article the draft below might be deleted. It's your talk page to do with as you like, but it's a bit hard to edit around.
As for formatting and pictures, a good way to learn is to look around at other articles to see what you think looks best. It can be helpful to break up long blocks of text into subsections. Perhaps it'd be possible to split the biography into two or three eras. Other than that, the formatting is usually kept fairly plain. As for photos, it's easy to upload them: the trick is in finding photos with appropriate licensing. If you have any personal photos then those'd be fine. There are might be pictures of the peaks he did first ascents on in the Wikicommons. File:Cathedral Peak.png is a so-so pic of Eichorn Pinnacle.
As before, feel free to ask if you have any questions. There are several editors here who are mountaineers or just admirers of the Sierra, so you're in good company.   Will Beback  talk  21:13, 31 July 2009 (UTC)

Your climber biographies

Hey Jim, just wanted to say welcome and thanks for your contributions to the Sierra Nevada climbing history articles. You're filling a niche that's been missing here, I look forward to working with you. --Justin (talk) 11:54, 27 August 2009 (UTC)

I'll second that. Nice work on Allen Steck and welcome to Wikipedia. I don't know who you are planning to write up next but if your taking requests I think Peter Croft (climber) could really use a page. If you ever have any questions please ask. Thanks again for your great additions.--OMCV (talk) 02:25, 29 August 2009 (UTC)
Thanks Justin and OMCV. I am beginning work on Tom Frost and Glen Dawson. Comments on Norman Clyde would be welcomed. I will defintely read up on Peter Croft, OMCV. I am still "learning the ropes" in Wikipedia, to use a climbing analogy, and have all sorts of things in mind. My biggest challenge right now is getting permission to use images. My next biggest challenge is hiking to the top of Mt. Whitney with my wife in ten days - she's never been above 12,000 feet except for the train ride up Pikes Peak. As she's 56 and developing arthritis in her toes, it will be an accomplishment if she (and I) complete the Class 1 feat. Jim Heaphy (talk) 02:34, 29 August 2009 (UTC)
Debra and I made it to the summit of Mt. Whitney at 2:20 PM on Friday, September 11. Jim Heaphy (talk) 00:59, 17 September 2009 (UTC)

Bill Shaheen[edit]

The Bill Shaheen article is expanding and evolving. The attempts to delete it within minutes of its creation seem premature and to ignore the actual statements of the article.John Pack Lambert (talk) 04:01, 29 October 2015 (UTC)

Why are you writing an overt attack page, Johnpacklambert? Shame on you! Cullen328 Let's discuss it 04:06, 29 October 2015 (UTC)
    • The shame is on those who have turned Wikipedia into drivel by describing pawn shops as "jewlery stores" especially ones that fronted stolen goods. Jeanne Shaheen has said she and her husband ran a small business for the first 8 years of their marriage, they were married in 1972, thus by her own admission they were still running the store in 1980. I will not be shamed by people who feel no outrage at the passes those involved in running fencing operations get if they make it look like just one person in the business is involved. It is this type of letting it go that leads to major support for rampant crime in places like Detroit, and it is the total failure of much of the media to even try to explore such smoking guns that means that we continue to have corruption in government. I go where the sources lead.John Pack Lambert (talk) 04:12, 29 October 2015 (UTC)
Your conduct here sickens me as much as does the conduct of editors who tried to insert material about Newt Gingrich's previous marital indiscretions into Callista Gingrich's biography. You have stepped WAY over the bounds of a BLP violation, and I am frankly astounded by your misconduct in this matter. Please regain your moral compass, and cease and desist now, Johnpacklambert. Cullen328 Let's discuss it 04:23, 29 October 2015 (UTC)
You misuse terms like moral. There is nothing amoral with including in an article documented statements. Your accusation that I am "cheery-picking" sources is totally unfair and not at all based on the truth.John Pack Lambert (talk) 04:38, 29 October 2015 (UTC)
You have abandoned the neutral point of view and embalazoned overt advocacy onto your arm like a tattoo. That is not a badge of honor as an encyclopedist, but a besmirching black mark. Have you no shame? Cullen328 Let's discuss it 04:53, 29 October 2015 (UTC)
  • The true attacks are in the language you use to harrass me.John Pack Lambert (talk) 05:39, 29 October 2015 (UTC)
    • And how would the real victim in this matter, Bill Shaheen, feel if he read your ugly hit piece, Johnpacklambert? Can you put yourself in his shoes and feel any empathy for him? Or are you just an unfeeling political operative, pressing the button against the "other side"? Cullen328 Let's discuss it 05:45, 29 October 2015 (UTC)
      • So I am not a fake person. Shaheen is a public figure. I am not going to apoligize for posting the truth about him.John Pack Lambert (talk) 05:48, 29 October 2015 (UTC)

What to do about this[edit]

At user talk:Iridescent#"Marks of Cain", I queried an edit of mine she reverted with what I thought was odd wording in the edit summary, so I asked for clarification. She then ranted at me, I said something stupid and she insulted me and told me to go away (fair enough). I apologised and tried to explain and she closed the discussion, giving the impression I was harrassing her. I am extremely distressed by this and do not know what to do, I didn't mean to harrass anyone and I simply asked a question. --Rubbish computer (Trick: or treat?) 21:37, 31 October 2015 (UTC)

(talk page stalker)Rubbish computer, today might not be your day, as you also are not on my good side for that little stunt of slapping a cleanup template on an article four minutes after it was created by a user who is working on it. My guess (given that you haven't explained what editing action triggered the "Mark of Cain" comment) is that you got template-happy and put something on a user page that was not necessary and unduly mean-spirited. iri was trying to explain to you what you did wrong and you took what was said as a personal attack when it was not; it was merely constructive criticism. So take a rally deep breath and realize that you weren't being attacked, you were being educated. How about giving yourself a template rest for a bit? Montanabw(talk) 23:07, 31 October 2015 (UTC)

@Montanabw: Of course, I just want Iridescent to know I'm sorry. --Rubbish computer (Trick: or treat?) 23:11, 31 October 2015 (UTC)
@Montanabw: I thought when a user got blocked, you put Template:Blocked user on their userpage, and I asked why she reverted me as I didn't know. I said something stupid, but tried to say sorry. --Rubbish computer (Trick: or treat?) 23:16, 31 October 2015 (UTC)
Well, I can't answer that one because I am not (yet) an admin. But the stuff you shouldn't have said to iri was did sound kind of mean-spirited and attacking to my wiki-"ears" too; you many not have meant it that way, but I probably would have interpreted it the same iri did. You probably should have just stopped after the first error, struck the "something stupid" part and just said "sorry, I misunderstood the use of the template" without an attempt to further explain yourself. Montanabw(talk) 23:39, 31 October 2015 (UTC)
Hello, Rubbish computer. I suggest that you start by reading the template documentation, which says quite clearly, "While everyone can add this tag, it should typically only be placed by the blocking administrator. If the blocker doesn't think it's needed, the odds are it isn't." Then back off and leave the folks you have irritated alone for a while. Sometimes silence is the most effective apology. As a general rule, these kind of templates should be used sparingly. Cullen328 Let's discuss it 23:46, 31 October 2015 (UTC)
She explained the matter. It was not a rant or an attempt to get you in trouble. Think carefully before making comments that escalate things. Cullen328 Let's discuss it 23:56, 31 October 2015 (UTC)
Okay, thanks. --Rubbish computer (Trick: or treat?) 01:30, 1 November 2015 (UTC)

Your article on oxide jacking cited in Wikipedia's article on Oxide jacking[edit]

I read with interest your article on oxide jacking as it pertains to construction and home improvement. It was clear and engaging, even to someone with no background in the industry, and I agree that citing it in the Wikipedia article improved that article and was appropriate. I have a couple of questions. First, did anything ever come of your recommendation, on the part of either the marble industry association or any other group? Second, I see that the "James Heaphy" listed as co-author is your son, but the way your article is currently cited in the Wikipedia article looks like somebody just listed you twice by accident. Is he by chance a "Jr." or "III" that could be included to make it clearer that there were two authors with similar names? —GrammarFascist contribstalk 02:43, 2 November 2015 (UTC)

Thank you very much for your kind words, GrammarFascist. I really appreciate what you said.
In response to your first question, there has been no change to the applicable stone industry standards, as far as I know. I am not a member of the trade group in question and they responded in a defensive and slightly hostile fashion to our constructive criticism. They described the problem as rare, though we were getting customer inquiries about this type of problem once or twice a month just in our market area. How do you define "rare"? Therefore, we did not pursue the matter but have seen many dozens of similar failures since that article was published.
As for your second question, yes, my son and I do have very similar names. Actually, I am the "III" and he is the "IV", if you can believe that. But I go by "Jim Heaphy" on a day-to-day basis, while he goes by "James Heaphy". I am reluctant to use Roman numerals in this Wikipedia article that were not used in the original trade journal article. Neither of us use the Roman numerals except when giving our full legal names in a formal setting. Cullen328 Let's discuss it 07:40, 2 November 2015 (UTC)
You're very welcome, Jim, I meant my praise in all sincerity. It's a shame, though not really surprising, that the industry association has responded that way. Is it at least possible for you to get accurate information from suppliers about what material they use for rods when you're ordering countertops? Regarding your and your son's names, I do in fact know another father and son who are III and IV, and they don't use those numerals except in formal situations either. (The father goes by their middle name and the son goes by their first name.) I see your point about the numerals not being used in the source article. Well, readers can follow the source link, see your mention that your son contributed to the column, and draw the same inference I did; that will have to be good enough. See you at the Teahouse! —GrammarFascist contribstalk 08:07, 2 November 2015 (UTC)
Here I venture far deeper into the realm of personal opinion than I usually do on Wikipedia, GrammarFascist. (Facebook is another matter entirely). Yes, a customer ordering stone countertops can ask the fabricator what type of material they use for rodding reinforcements. And that company would be legally obligated to respond accurately. The problem is that only a tiny percentage of consumers would have any reason or motivation to ask that question. Awareness of the problem is minimal. Only if a friend or relative had the same problem and it was properly diagnosed would a customer have the awareness to even ask. And in my experience, most stone industry professionals are mystified when they see the problem, and concoct a variety of false explanations for these failures, all in good faith. It is a lack of information both among consumers and professionals. Perhaps by some definitions, the problem is "rare", but I believe that this problem.affects thousands of homeowners each year in the U.S., with damages of thousands or tens of thousands of dollars in each case. I consider that a significant problem. Others seem to disagree. Cullen328 Let's discuss it 08:37, 2 November 2015 (UTC)
It sounds like it might be a situation that calls for intervention by California's department of consumer protection (or whatever name the equivalent state agency out there has). In the state where I currently reside, the office of the Attorney General, and the Department of Consumer Protection which is under the AG's purview, are quite aggressive in pursuing businesses which seem to have acted in bad faith contrary to the public interest. I would think California would have good consumer protection laws and enforcement as well, but that's just an educated guess. —GrammarFascist contribstalk 08:50, 2 November 2015 (UTC)


I have spent my life dealiing with design, construction and technology related to these topics. I would like to create a section on Design and Construction. I have created a massive outline of topics and subtopics, but there is no content. Is there a way to post this outline so contributors can start adding content. For any one topic dealing with design or construction (selecting insulated glass, sound transmission levels for a school classroom, best painting process for a damp location, layout for a handicap bathroom for a pre-school, etc) you can go to the Internet and there will be hundreds if not thouosands of listings but most or old, wrong, an add for a product, etc. I would like to help create a single location with the "best" information for these thousands of topics. As I said I have the topics, just need to figure out how to get content.

Hi Jim - This "bio" would appear to be a highly targeted "hit" article driven by factional politics - and with a primary objective to "tar" by association the subjects daughter, a sitting member in the Victorian State Parliament. In the local Australian context, its tone is highly one-sided and written with the objective attack the subject, and by association his daughter. Many of the cited sources, and emotive language, are allegations, not proven violations of law. Thanks for the opportunity to provide feedback. AusEditFrame (talk) 00:32, 13 November 2015 (UTC)

Hello, AusEditFrame. I have expressed my general agreement with your opinion at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Hakki Suleyman. Although I am interested in Australian politics from a distance, I know very little about the day-to-day details. But I do not need that level of expertise to detect an attack page. It appears highly likely that the article will be deleted. The situation is disappointing to me because the editor who wrote and defended the article is one who I have collaborated with and respected for several years. Cullen328 Let's discuss it 01:13, 13 November 2015 (UTC)

Hi Jim[edit]

Hi Jim - I thank you for your invitation for my immediate ban at Wiki by various who seem to be angling for such a result. I have expressly wished that a proper review of Wiki procedures be put in place concerning political elections because it seems more than clear to me that there is a gang of apparatchiks who get on my cause with remarkable promptness whenever I edit & then do their utmost to prevent any meaningful progress being made. M Mabelina (talk) 05:30, 13 November 2015 (UTC)

Hello, Mabelina. I favor a BLP topic ban, not a complete ban. Evasiveness will get you nowhere in this matter, nor will doubling down and claiming that a source that any other experienced editor immediately sees as unreliable is actually reliable in your imagination. You would be better advised to admit your error and resolve never again to use such a crappy source. Digging in your heels is a really bad idea. Accusing other editors of being Soviet style operatives is also unwise, and a personal attack. Do not reply here, please. Defend yourself at ANI. Cullen328 Let's discuss it 05:39, 13 November 2015 (UTC)

Hello Cullen,

How are you doing? Please I need your help. Will this constitute a copyvio? Although the article Isaac Folorunso Adewole had been created before the "Vanguard News" publication. I intend to expand the section "Work" with his scholarly article publications already in the "Vanguard. I hope this will not constitute copyvio and there is no way I can write it in my own language. Please I need your help. Thanks in anticipation. Wikigyt@lk to M£ 18:39, 17 November 2015 (UTC)

Hello Wikicology. I am fine and hope you are as well. I see no copyvio and it looks like a false positive to me. Almost all the similarities are proper names of institutions, job titles and the like. I see no original prose being copied. In my opinion, you have nothing to worry about. Cullen328 Let's discuss it 19:47, 17 November 2015 (UTC)

Hello. I don't see how having a picture of the lead singer is appropriate in the Bataclan article. Mind you, this is the article on Bataclan theatre itself, not just the attacks. It seems out of place to have a large photo of the singer in an article about this historical theatre. The band is already mentioned in the article, but to focus on this one singer in the aftermath of the attacks trivializes the event. DrRNC (talk)

He is more than just a singer, DrRNC. He is the front man, the public face of Eagles of Death Metal, and the only permanent touring member of the band for 17 years. Josh Homme only performs in the studio, and the other guys are hired session players. He is the performer that 1500 people came to see, that ISIS chose to attack, and 89 people were murdered as a result.
I understand that the article is about more than just the attacks and in recent days, I have added lots of material that has nothing to do with the attack and relatively little about the actual attack itself, other than the names of the known attackers. I am committed to the article being an overview of the 150 year history of the theater. However, it is performers that draw people to a successful concert venue, including last Friday night, and Jesse Hughes will forever be intertwined with by far the most stunning event in the history of the Bataclan. Cullen328 Let's discuss it 08:33, 20 November 2015 (UTC)
I believe you are putting more importance in this singer than is warranted. If the article was extensively about the attacks, a picture of the band may be justified. However, this is not an article about just the attacks and the picture showing emergency crews outside the theatre suffices. Also, I don't buy the argument that because they played, people came to see them, and therefore, the attacks were against this singer. People came to see the other act, too. It's not known if the attackers had an issue with this band (which I highly doubt; more likely it was a venue that was seen as an open target). Therefore, having a stand alone picture of the main singer is incredibly out of place. DrRNC (talk)

Request for resolution of queries regarding Wikipedia Article Deletion[edit]

Hello Jim,

I am a new user on Wikipedia with the username, Annie 86. It's great to connect with you here. I loved your profile headline "When was the last time you tried something new for the first time?" :) Well, I created my first article on Wikipedia, 'D&H Sécheron Electrodes Private Limited' on November 20, 2015. But, this page has been deleted.(For Reference: The information stated in the article was true, complete and accurate to the best of my knowledge.I am learning but, I never tried to misuse Wikipedia for merely sharing promotional information and referred to the Wikipedia pages of other Welding and Engineering companies such as Ador Welding, Lincoln Electric, Larsen & Toubro, Siemens, etc. while creating this page. I also added logo of the company, other important details, links to other Wikipedia articles, references and news links. I am keen to know the reason for the deletion of this article. Though it is painstaking and boring activity, I would be grateful if you could please check and guide on measures, which need to be implemented to get it a place on Wikipedia.

Thanks for your time.


Annie Annie 86 (talk) 06:18, 25 November 2015 (UTC)

Hello, Annie 86. The debate was at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/D&H Sécheron Electrodes Private Limited. The article was deleted as unambiguous advertising by a very experienced and respected administrator, DGG. Please read WP:G11 for a description of the deletion criteria. As I am not an administrator, I can't see the text of the deleted article. I will offer a few general comments, though. If by any chance, you have a paid professional connection with the company, then the Wikimedia Terms of use require you to disclose this. You should read Your first article. Please be aware that an acceptable Wikipedia article should neutrally summarize what reliable, independent sources say about the topic. Please also note that Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, not a directory of every welding and engineering company on Earth. Cullen328 Let's discuss it 06:39, 25 November 2015 (UTC)
Annie B6, the article contained such phrases as "Considered the "Complete Welding Support", Quality, Innovation and Import Substitution have been the three watchwords in the organisation.Most of the content was long list of products with the dates the firm began carrying them. WP does not publish product catalogs. It was supplemented by a list of the countries where the firm has distributors It also had a list of trade shows where the product was shown. Such lists are appropriate for the firm's website, not an encyclopedia. Furthermore , a WP article will not be kept without references providing substantial coverage from third-party independent reliable sources, not press releases or mere announcements. The only reference here was the firms own website. If and only if you have such references, try, but using WP:AFC, and not forgetting to make any necessary declaration off conflict of interest, just as Cullen328 specified. DGG ( talk ) 07:02, 25 November 2015 (UTC)


Hello Jim,
Annie 86 here. Thanks a lot for your reply and guidance. I will make the necessary changes and then share the draft for your suggestions. Have a good day ahead.

By the way, I also noticed that your ArbCom candidacy has sextupled voter turnout. Well done! Cullen328 Let's discuss it
  • Really? All because of me? How do you know? Drmies (talk) 05:53, 30 November 2015 (UTC)
I am just joshing with you about my made-up "pet theory", Drmies. I would love to discuss my more serious thoughts about this "interesting" election after it is all over. As for now, I will simply say that getting all worked up about the situation is premature, in my opinion. Neither Trump nor Carson are yet president, and X, Y and Z are not yet on ArbCom.
