Bears in Heraldry[edit]

Hi. Why did you remove the examples of bears in heraldry? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Anomenat (talkcontribs) 10:11, 6 June 2008 (UTC)

Sorry, I wasn't clear. You created an article for bears in heraldry. It had some nice examples of heraldic bears in it. Then you deleted the examples from the article. Why? Can we put them back? Anomenat (talk) 14:48, 6 June 2008 (UTC)

Excellent - I didn't realise there were so many examples in the Commons. Thank you. Anomenat (talk) 11:40, 9 June 2008 (UTC)

Answer[edit]

Hello, Dark hyena! Thank you for your comments. It's refreshing to be acquainted with someone who is interested in these matters.

That book is damned expensive, isn't it? I imagine popular knowledge of this subject would be much more forthcoming if if weren't so hard to find a decent source on the matter, or leastways a source that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. Anyhoo ...

Misidentification by any of the parties involved in the business of the Beast seems very unlikely. The Gevaudanais had been pastoralists for centuries and the wolf was a staple of their culture, if unwanted. Local hunters (fugitive poachers and aristocrats), d'Enneval (supposedly the greatest hunter of wolves in France until his failure), and Antoine de Beauterne (whose only superiors were the Grand Huntsman of France and then the King) all agreed that the Beast was a wolf. The carcasses of the two wolves suspected of being the Beast and the Beast II were positively identified by a number of victims and witnesses. With the death of each animal the two sequences of human predation ended.

I suppose the mystery lies not in the physical nature of the Beast, which by all accounts was an oversized wolf with some unusual characteristics, but its behaviour. There is, of course, the argument of wolf-dog hybridization and the atavism that would be associated with such crossbreeding, not to mention the awkward effects that might have on morphology. The images we have, be they engravings or newspaper prints, are at best stylized representations of the animal reproduced from accounts that may or may not have been exaggerated due to fear, excitement, or the opportunity for profit. Newspapers in France and elsewhere sensationalized the episode, despite its inherent sensationalism. The subject is fantastic to be sure but rogue wolves menacing the French populace were nothing new - the Beast being an exceptional example thereof.

There is understandably a great deal of speculation on the matter but, if you notice, none of the sources referred to in the article are of true scholarly provenance save for the last. If we are to make this a serious subject of study then we need to distance it from cryptozoology and conspiracy, as detractors will immediately and irrevocably take those associations and carry them to no end, crying wolf as it were.

I hope this helps. Feel free to ask me anything else. Have a nice day or night or morning or whenever you read this!!

Oh, and I can speak French ... sorta. Haltingly and poorly.

Furthermore, dot dot dot[edit]

Why did you change

Wolf hunting is the practice of hunting wolves, especially the Gray Wolf (Canis lupus). Wolves are mainly hunted for sport, for their skins and to protect livestock. Wolves are also hunted due to the fear that they may kill people, however in the United States no claim of a wild wolf killing a human has ever been verified by official sources. A Scandanavian study found that cases of wild, healthy wolves attacking or killing an adult human being were rare.[1] However, there are a number of well-documented historical cases of wolf aggression involving predation of humans.

??

If the sentence However, there are a number of well-documented historical cases of wolf aggression involving predation of humans. is irrelevant and belongs in Attitudes toward wolves then the note in the United States no claim of a wild wolf killing a human has ever been verified by official sources. is also irrelevant, and should take a hike as well. Either keep them both or leave them both, but leaving only one will give the false impression that a)wolves are cuddly little things incapable of harm to humans or b)wolves are bloodthirsty killing machines, neither of which are true. As a very general rule, European wolves have historically been aggressive while American wolves have not. Why is the docility of American wolves worth mention but not the hostility of European wolves? We're trying to give a balanced perspective of the wolf here.

I think both statements should remain - don't forget that wolf hunting was very often undertaken to remove man-eaters. What do you think?

Bearerofthecup (talk) 01:32, 9 December 2007 (UTC)

Simple human error. I missed the part on wolf attacks in the US. Personally, I would remove both. Before we came along, the article was nothing but a childish rant on how wolves are harmless puppies. There was barely any significant mention on the global history and methods behind wolf hunting, just brief, uninteresting summaries.

I think the whole wolf attack debate should be limited to the "Fatal wolf attacks" and "attitudes" articles. The hunting article has such potential in a neutral frame of mind. I would hate to see it turn into yet another "wolf apologist historical revision".

On a different note, does "Wolf hunting in France" mention what dog breeds were used in France to hunt wolves?Dark hyena (talk) 14:48, 9 December 2007 (UTC)

You are tearing the wolf hunting article to pieces. Great job! Keep it up. Bearerofthecup (talk) 00:05, 11 December 2007 (UTC)

Lions and hyneas[edit]

Um...interesting stuff you added to the lion article. Do you have some refs and are you able to inline them as the article is a Featured Article and referenced throughout. If you're unfamiliar iwth inlining I can add later if you highlight the refs. Also, the article is pretty huge and I had to trim mercilessly and write in a very succinct style, so it may need some trimming. However it is 1am here and I must sleep...zzzzzzzzzz cheers, Casliber (talk · contribs) 14:13, 13 December 2007 (UTC)

Coyote nonsense[edit]

Good job in finding that nonsense in the coyote article, keep up the good work. There's similar ignorant material in the bobcat, cougar, and fox articles if you are so inclined to tackle them sometime. Thank you. Bugguyak (talk) 22:39, 21 January 2008 (UTC)

...[edit]

You know, all the effort myself and other fans have put into the Predator technology article is really a waste now that you've wiped most of it out. I know that you just put in the "need to know" stuff, but the details that I and everybody else had put in really is just unfair now that you've butchered it.

I'm not asking or telling you to stop it, just tone the hacking down. Plus, once your done, I'm sure some people are just going to make it all a "mess" again. It was never really a mess, it was fairly organised. Oh and by the way, that "blury loop of wire" was the best shot there was on my DVD. I'm not trying to offend you, just telling you it's just a little unfair that you are re-writing everybodys work.LordJesseD (talk) 01:50, 1 February 2008 (UTC)

Well, I'm sorry you feel that way, but this is not a place for personal, epically narrated essays containing guesses and theories. Writing down "as seen in AVP" etc just clutters the article unecessarily. References are much tidier, and easier to digest. Sentences like "..this weapon is probably used for.." have no place whatsoever.

I don't blame you for the wire pic, I just think that of all the Predator's technology needing a visual representative, a wire should be of least concern. I don't imagine people would have problems visualising a loop of wire by themselves.

About toning down the editing, it was not my writing which nearly got the article deleted. I think you'll find in the discussion page that it is considered an improvement.

I appreciate the effort you've put into it, AND, I can see that your grammar and vocabulary is better than most. It would be of great help if that gift was limited to following wiki-guidelines. Apologies if I may have hurt your feelings, but think upon what I've just written.Dark hyena (talk) 14:48, 1 February 2008 (UTC)


nice job buddy, you ruined the page —Preceding unsigned comment added by Nyrb Jenings (talkcontribs) 14:12, 2 February 2008 (UTC)


Heya[edit]

In the last while I've come around to you style of thinkning. I completly agree with the butchering now. I understand why. I'm gonna try to be a bit more like you. In some ways I agree about the wire, but I do think every article and section should have picture(s), as it makes it a full explantaion then. But it wasn't just wire, it had jagged edges. Yes, my idea of a joke. Also out a of the many pictures I've put onto the page, a lot were taken off a while back. Any idea why? I can't quite tell if you did it. But I thought that my pictures had good reprersentaion of the section(s). Ah well, I will try to decipher it all before I put hem back.

I now will follow the guidlines. With vigilance.

Also I knoticed your images of the Saiyans. Which article were you trying to put thme into? No offense intended, but the picture was shocking. I could upload the same image myself, restored from my DVD. I'm great at cleaning up pictures, so... yeah. That's provided you want any help.LordJesseD (talk) 10:14, 20 February 2008 (UTC)

Hmm...[edit]

I agree with the two-images-of-the-same-thing concept. But stuff like the cloak short-circuiting I think should stay. Images like the hilt of the dagger are understandable, but out-right removing useful images like the medicomp is just rude. IF I was to add back a few of the images like the arm blades and medicomp, or parts that don't alreay have a picture, would you not remove them? Not saying you will, just asking.

On a side note, should I make a sub-article for the helmet's vision modes? Only two things are stopping me: I don't know the specific details of some modes and what they do and are for, and I'm afraid that it'll get turnt into a new article. —Preceding unsigned comment added by LordJesseD (talkcontribs) 14:20, 20 February 2008 (UTC)

Also I take DragonBall Z very seriously, it means a lot to me personally.

Agreed[edit]

I will make the new subsection at sometime, but I'll have to find plausable references. I acknoledge that some other people may not agree, but if I did it right, they shouldn't have any reason to complain. Too much. I'll do some research and get the facts straight, then I may start it. Thanks for the input and advice.LordJesseD (talk) 03:15, 22 February 2008 (UTC)

Idea[edit]

Believe it or not, I thought about doing that a couple of weeks ago. I'll go get all those screenshots. But I don't own AVP:R, so... But we'll have to do, I'll get on it ASAP.

Are we gonna do it in the Technology section, or start a new one? I'll start combing my DVDs and finding some good shots.

Also, do you think the bio mask section should be called bio helmet? A mask is only used to cover something, it seems more like a helmet to me. It protects their face and hides who they are, so I think it should be called a helmet. Before I change it, I'll need your opinion.LordJesseD (talk) 03:56, 23 February 2008 (UTC)

Idea: 2[edit]

I think the 'bio' came from it's atmosphere-changing abilitys. One'd assume it stands for biological. I've also heard of it being called 'enviro helm' or 'enviroment helmet', which make more sense to me. I think that 'enviroment helmet' is quite suitable, but to save fuss, just 'helmet' is good. As soon as I upload the ship images, I'll notify you. I'll have a few, but you'll have to chose which is the best.LordJesseD (talk) 17:23, 23 February 2008 (UTC)

Re:Bullshit[edit]

I agree about the need to remove bullshit from the Xenomorph (Alien) article, but I have to say that if it were up to me I would remove entire sections, so it's difficult for me to decide which bullshit to keep and which to ditch. Serendipodous 14:35, 24 February 2008 (UTC)

Hi there[edit]

I would like to ask a favor for the the Predator technology page. I've uploaded an in-game image of the speargun and linked it to that page, but the thing kept getting removed just because "it's overcluttered with other images" according to EEMeltonIV. Is there any possible way you could crop the screenshot of the speargun thumb034.jpg and the spear gun tip [1] into something similar like this? [2]. I saw your work on that particular screenshot and would like some help with something like that for the Speargun. As it is, I'm held up by bureaucracy and am not knowledgeable on how to crop images like what you did. Thanks. Dibol (talk) 14:14, 1 April 2008 (UTC)

Dog infobox image[edit]

Please read the old talk page discussions about the infobox image. The current one is a strong consensus choice, and whatever the image, it has been long standing tradition to use a Labrador Retriever. That breed is the most neutral choice, as it is verifiably the most popular breed. Feel welcome to propose a different image, but it should probably stay a Lab.

Foot-and-mouth disease[edit]

You recently wrote that wolves can be infected by FMD. I don't have access to Graves' book which you refer to, but it strikes me as curious that no dogs are known to have contracted the disease, even though they'r closely related to wolves and often in close contact with farm animals. However, dogs may spread the disease [5] by carrying around infected meat and bones. I wonder if this could be the case with the russian wolves, that they spread it simply by digging up carcasses of infected farm animals? EverGreg (talk) 18:06, 18 May 2008 (UTC)

Wolfdogs[edit]

Hy,

Just like I promised, I searched through my collected material and at least found a few sources. Since I don’t know if you speak German, I only searched for the English material. However, they mostly deal only shortly with these animals and only in the old “conservation of wolves”-topic, so nearly nothing about the wolf-dogs behaviour in the wild.

Also I cannot guarantee that you will find all the text and sites on the internet because it’s been months since I found them and even that very often by pure coincidence.

The sources are:

Personally, I recommend to try the last link, it doesn’t specifically state so much about hybrids but you might find the data interesting and I think it may be the best of the listed sources for the topic of behaviour. --Inugami-bargho (talk) 05:47, 5 August 2008 (UTC)

Hy, me again.

As I said on my site, here are the best german sources I know:

  • Erik Zimen, "Der Wolf" and "Der Hund" (only a little information about wolfdogs but good as a starting point for further research)
  • Doris Feddersen-Petersen, "Hundepsychologie" (not about wild ones, but a very detailed chapter about an experiment with interbreeding of european wolfs/jackals/coyotes and poodles [due to the outcome, she concluded that dogs and european grey wolves must be the same species and ruled out direct jackal and coyote ancestry])
  • Prof. Bibikow, "Der Wolf" (detailed chapter about various feral dogs and a few wolf-dogs in the Sovjet Union, I don't doubt his observations but his conclusions, nontheless the best source for wild wolf-dogs I've known so far)
  • Guenther Bloch, "Der Wolf im Hundepelz" (also only a small section)

I hope you'll find that usefull, however I dopubt that there are english versions except for the books of Bibikow and Zimen.--Inugami-bargho (talk) 12:52, 5 August 2008 (UTC)

Yipe[edit]

Those poor field geologists.

Last year I [barely] outran a charging grizzly while doing field work in Montana. In Idaho it was even worse: the bears would come into the camps at night and snuffle up against the tents, dragging their claws across the fabric. For five nights in a row I slept with a hunting knife in one hand and a rock hammer in the other. Every day we received reports of some backpacker's half-eaten corpse turning up within a mile of where we were working.

I've also had the pleasure of being hunted by a mountain lion on two separate occasions, though not wolves. Yet. Maybe I'm unlucky?

Persecution[edit]

Why "Persecution" over "Extermination" at Striped Hyena? It seems unusual to use a term generally applied to humans, especially while the section seems to be describing extermination more than anything else.

Also I noticed one of the most-cited references was dead, so I've implemented Fact tags. If you can find a new location for that source, undo my edit and replace the reference with the new location. Chedorlaomer (talk) 14:38, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

I understand that persecution is applied to animals (endangered or otherwise), especially within animal rights/pro-animal context (I also find references to "innocent" hyenas"; how an animal can be truly innocent or guilty is baffling to me). You are right in pointing out that some of the items mentioned aren't extermination. I suppose I found the use of "persecution" odd because it implies some wrongdoing on the part of the persecutor; little do we speak of "persecuting" criminals and perverts. It is akin to describing cases where hyenas have killed people under the heading "Murders committed by hyenas." Anyway, maybe it isn't such a big deal; perhaps "persecution" is really a neutral term that just may seem biased because it has been coupled with biased writing so often.

Fair use rationale for File:Godzillamechagodzillabeamwar.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Godzillamechagodzillabeamwar.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use. Suggestions on how to do so can be found here.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages 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 non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.

John Doe (Seven)[edit]

Hi. I came across the John Doe (Seven) article, and noticed that it was filled with what was essentially an essay of your own personal analysis and conjecture about the character, most of which was unsourced, and violates WP:V, WP:SYNTH, WP:NOR, etc. I'm sorry, but I had to remove it since material that violates these policies is not appropriate for inclusion (though I left in the things that were sourced, such as those things specifically mentioned in the film or its DVD Commentary). I normally do not contact other editors to report when I removed material that they added, but I did so in this case because it's obvious that you put a lot of thought and work into it, and wanted to give you the opportunity to preserve it in some way, if you wish, at another location, like on your computer or personal webpage. The last version before my recent edits is here. Thanks. Nightscream (talk) 01:57, 3 July 2009 (UTC)

Disputed non-free use rationale for File:TheRace.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:TheRace.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this file on Wikipedia may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content. This can be corrected by going to the file description page and adding or clarifying the reason why the file qualifies under this policy. Adding and completing one of the templates available from Wikipedia:Non-free use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your file is in compliance with Wikipedia policy. Please be aware that a non-free use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for files used under the non-free content policy require both a copyright tag and a non-free use rationale.

If it is determined that the file does not qualify under the non-free content policy, it might be deleted by an administrator within a few days in accordance with our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions, please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you. Jack Merridew 10:36, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

Non-free rationale for File:MegandGig.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:MegandGig.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under non-free content criteria, but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia is acceptable. Please go to the file description page, and edit it to include a non-free rationale.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified the non-free rationale on those pages too. 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. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page.

Replaceable fair use File:Man-wolves.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Man-wolves.jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that the media is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first non-free content 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 or which could be adequately covered with text alone. 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 this non-free 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 non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our non-free content 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, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per our non-free content policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Melesse (talk) 01:17, 26 May 2012 (UTC)
