Nice work on Jules Eichorn. He's been needing an article for a while.   Will Beback  talk  06:28, 31 July 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
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)Reply[reply]

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)Reply[reply]

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)Reply[reply]
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)Reply[reply]

Request of Help on "Just the Facts" Tone[edit]

Hi Jim,

I am very new to Wikipedia. I got your feedback on the draft article located under PhoCoHaNoi. Thanks so much for your comments. I would greatly appreciate if you would spare some valuable time to highlight those parts from the draft that I need to pay close attentions to regarding the aspect that you raised. I know it would be a long shot to ask if you would even consider providing specific examples by directly editing them on the draft.

Lastly, I still do not know on how to submit the revision for review. I do not see any obvious buttons or pull-down menus from the Sandbox setting that would be able to allow to submit the article for review.

Thank you so much.


Hello, PhoCoHaNoi. I am not going to edit the draft myself, because I want this to be a learning exercise for you. Here are a few examples of unacceptable wording:
  • "celebrating the 73-year history of outstanding men and women"
  • "pioneering contributions"
  • "sustained leadership and strategic vision"
  • "Exceptional services to innovation ecosystem"
  • "stimulating small business innovation, meeting the Air Force and DoD R&D needs, broadening participation in innovation and entrepreneurship, and boosting commercialization"
  • " So, as Dr. Pham looked back now, he brought systems-theoretic science and control engineering principles, together with teamwork and interdisciplinary to bear fruition in solving warfighter engineering problems, various areas of specific focus for increased activities in space control autonomy and space domain awareness."
It is not the job of a Wikipedia editor (you) to praise a person. Every trace of this non-neutral language must be removed. A Wikipedia article should never say "Person A is great!" Instead, it should say "Reliable source C reports that Expert B says that Person A is great", along with a reference to Reliable source C.
As for how to submit your draft, I will explain that when the draft complies with the neutral point of view. Cullen328 Let's discuss it

Sending Messages to Other Editors[edit]

Hi Jim. I will deeply appreciate anything that you can do to help. How can I find out about other editors and send them messages? I recently looked for an article about The Italian Coffee Company that I had read years ago. However, I could not find it. I believe that this article should be available. I am a new editor and I have a big learning curve ahead of me. Maybe you can post to my talk page. I am user Mojosa17. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thoughts on this[edit]

Hey, Cullen. I see you're active at the moment, could you give me your thoughts please on Readisten? There appears to be a somewhat good-faith reason for them being here, wanting to develop text-to-speech recordings, but there's no indication that's directly in the interest of Wikipedia. I've engaged them on their talk page but illicited no response yet. I'm finding it a little hard to gauge the next move. Obviously WP:UAA came to mind but i don't think a block is immediately warranted, but as i said i'm not entirely sure. Zindor (talk)

Invitation to Local Wikimania Event in San Francisco this Friday[edit]

While it's fairly last minute, you're warmly invited to participate in the local Wikimania-themed meetup in the Wikimedia Foundation office this Friday (tomorrow!). You will have to register in advance, but we would love to see more people from the WikiSalon community participate! For more information and registration, please check out meta:Wikimania 2022/San Francisco Meetup.

The event will involve hacking, teaching, learning, and celebrating and we'll have snacks. We will have the opportunity to watch live sessions at Wikimania together in the afternoon. The rest of the day we'll have opportunity to participate in the hackathon, and we may have some on-demand workshops/learning sessions.

In case we run out of space, it's first-come-first-serve so let us know soon! Hope to see you there.

Replying for Burning of Smyrna[edit]

@Cullen328: Your remarks of me "POV pushing and axe grinding" are highly inappropriate as they indicate that you have not read my edits or that you do not really care what is in the edits, for some reason of your own. Are you sure you are not confusing my edits with the endless anti-Turkish propaganda in the article? Show me one single POV and one single axe grinding in my edits, and I will show you ten that were in the article before I edited a single word and still remain now, nay I will show you twenty. Also, I wanted to discuss everything in the article Talk page, but got no response because the other editors could not defend their positions. What happened to all the Wikipedia niceties? Please go and examine my edits, then see if you can make the same claims. @Liz: You choose not to reply to my questions after you have accused me of sockpuppeting and disruption. I could just as well accuse you of taking sides, and perhaps knowingly, because of your baseless accusations, and your hard to believe claim that you do not recall how you happened on the article. Perhaps you have remembered by now. I could not find a Reply button on the original topic, so that is why we are here. (talk) 02:16, 11 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I am not interested in engaging further with you except in exercising my powers as an administrator. In my judgment, you are behaving like a tendentious ethnic nationalist POV pusher. I am sure that you are convinced of your own righteousness and that your ethnic rivals are wicked. I am not interested in debating with you. My interest is in protecting the encyclopedia from POV pushers. Please do not post on my talk page again unless it is to make a required notification. Cullen328 (talk) 03:00, 11 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hi Cullen, I believe this is a sock. Compare User talk:BenjaminStaff (blocked) [1], [2] with [3] and the geolocation of and this IP (both from Burning of Smyrna [4]) See discussion at [5].
I can't see the check user block info on BenjaminStaff, but if someone can check the geolocation from that account with the two public IPs I think it would match. @Materialscientist: @Liz: may have more information about this.
Greetings from Los Angeles,  // Timothy :: talk  03:21, 11 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hello, TimothyBlue. I have never claimed to be a sockpuppet detective and I am definitely not a checkuser so I will leave this matter to those who have those skills and tools. I do appreciate your observations, though. Thanks. Cullen328 (talk) 03:54, 11 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Materialscientist did not take any action which is not a surprise with an IP account which they will not associate with a registered account. Years ago, I used to get frustrated by the opaqueness of the work of checkusers but I then accepted that they are very experienced at their job and follow the rules strictly. They know what they are doing and have access to information that we don't have. But I wanted to bring up the association to him to see what he thought. Making that inquiry is what put me on's Enemies List. But having filled in the details right now, I think Jim probably wants this discussion to move along and have us all get back to work. Liz Read! Talk! 04:23, 11 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Liz, I do not mind being updated about any problematic behavior by this editor. But I am not interested in writing point-by-point refutations of their TLDR ramblings about propaganda which are clearly intended to push a nationalist agenda. I have far better things to do, such as pouring shots of whiskey for my wife and I, and folding the laundry. Cullen328 (talk) 04:32, 11 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Per this, I watched their return last week, but ignored it in hopes they'd go away. And now this. I expect nothing from it, since apparently no one has apprised them of the maxim that "if everyone disagrees with you, maybe you are the one who is wrong".

How can I edit good articles Thanks for all — Preceding unsigned comment added by Hytym (talkcontribs) 16:12, 26 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello, Hytym. Please read Help:Editing. Cullen328 (talk) 17:53, 26 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Wjemather has been unnecessarily undoing good edits from editors (myself and others ) for three years now. Editors have tried reasoning with that person over time, but that person does not want to listen. Several people in private chats have expressed their frustration with that person, simply because they don't know where else to turn to talk of their frustration.

That person's behaviour has not only been unproked, unneeded undoings of valid edits that no one else has ever had a problem with, but hypocritical also; the list is long of the times that that person would spitefully undo the very same type of edits that they themself have done before, throwing logic out the window. In other words, it's okay for themself, but not for others.

One other behaviour that makes that person unreasonable is making things up on the spot: An editor will do a good edit in the traditional way, but then this person in question will undo the edit with the excuse (paraphrasing), "Just because this is the traditional way is not an excuse to keep doing it that way.".

Trying to reason with that person has failed for years with many who have tried.

I've been editing on Wikipedia since 2007 and had never had any real problems from an editor until that one. I've been doing the same type of edits in the same way since the beginning, and in early 2020 that person came along and decided to be the first to take their own personal feelings and force feed them onto the Wikipedia community with uncalled for retractions that no one else had ever had a problem with. Nitpicking at every single turn, unJusifiably.

Most of that person's edits are undoings,, not additions, meaning the main purpose that person has had over the last three years has been to unneededly undo other people's edits, even when having to make up a reason to do so.

Simply to spite me, that person went and undid a good edit of mine on a page concerning a topic that they no absolutely nothing about:

Also last year, that person went back on a previously agreed upon standard for preparing the WGC MATCH Play page, one in which that person had willingly agreed to the year before:

It gets worse, you're damned if you do, and damned if you don't; If you do an edit one particular way, that person undoes it and criticizes you, but then if you do the edit the opposite way, that person still undoes it and criticizes you.

I would have to go and do weeks' worth of finding and citing all the examples of that person's gross, uncalled for undoings. For now, I will show a few recent examples of the kinds of edits that no one else ever had a a problem with, but this person is hell bent on interfering with anyway:

Undoing a perfectly good preparation that is done each week on the PGA Tour, for no reason ...

Undoing more preparation that is done as a normal thing in Wikipedia, for no reason ...

And those are only two examples of a half a dozen interference type of undoings in the last 24 hours. It takes time and trouble to go and post these here, so I'll stop there for now.

Other times, that person will try to get a page deleted, because in their OPINION the page was made "too early", something of which no one else has ever been known to complain about in recent years. There are links to show proof of this.

After three years of constant interference of spiteful, uncalled for undoings, we will not tolerate it any longer. I have been on here for sixteen years without serious trouble for 13 of them. Over the last three years, this constant hypocritical and unneeded interference won't be tolerated. Even the simple act of letting that person know, they lash back as if you are wronging them in some way, playing the victim.

Since no one has been able to get through to them because of their unreasonableness, we hope maybe you could have a chat with them to see if you can get through. Johnsmith2116 (talk) 04:54, 27 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

More advice[edit]

Thanks for the help and everything trying to fix that citation.

Can you also edit some other pages? Mandate of Heaven and Confucianism use a source I put called Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind. It was originally in Hebrew, and I just lumped all the translators in with the author who also helped with the process. I did this because I was confused if I should include the author or original language or not.

Also, there is a section on Wall Street called Early years I made a minor edit to to correct a typo in the chapter name from the Sapiens source. Should I just leave it 16 or expand it to Chapter 16? And also, is there a way to publicly display that a source comes from an e-book version with no pages? I assume that would be a note in References, but I have never been that great at citation, so I would like at least a short explanation on that.

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).

Sorry for missing this. Been away. never sure of what connects in this place. It was Talk:Tyler Lindholm. I did the changes to Tyler Lindholm on March 7. No-one's objected. Is that a good sign?

Hello, Basketballjo. Of course it is a good sign that no one has objected. It is always OK to remove a tag if you are confident that the identified problem has been corrected. You are correct that there is likely to be more scrutiny at Americans for Prosperity, so be bold but also careful. Cullen328 (talk) 01:01, 18 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

How will i make biographies in Wikipedia? --TripuraDrrahul (talk) 16:36, 15 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello, TripuraDrrahul. First, determine whether or not the person is truly notable. If so, gather up a list of the best reliable, independent sources that devote significant coverage to the person, which will be used as references. Now, read and study Your first article, and write a neutral, well-referenced draft. When completed, submit it to Articles for Creation for review. Writing an acceptable new article is difficult for inexperienced editors. Consider editing existing articles as well, so that you can learn more about how Wikipedia works.

I will protect the articles subjected to vandalism, if they have not already been protected. I assume that several administrators are watching these articles. Please feel free to keep in touch with me about these issues. Cullen328 (talk) 04:39, 18 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

AP 499D25, I have extended confirmed protected that biography since it has been attacked by throwaway autoconfirmed accounts created for the purpose of spreading racist slime. Please inform me (or any other active administrator) of this utterly inappropriate misconduct at any time. If I am on Wikipedia at that time, I will do my best to help out.

Block evasion?[edit]

Hi there! Please see the discussion on User talk:GoingBatty#Question from GRACE BOUY -GRL (07:24, 18 March 2023) from a user you blocked. Is this an example of block evasion? Thanks! GoingBatty (talk) 02:36, 20 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
