Help desk inquiry[edit]

Hi David, and welcome to Wikipedia. A merge tag was placed on the Economic Democracy article since 11 June, and was letting other editors know there was an ongoing discussion on the article's discussion page. With no consensus displayed in the discussion, the editor went ahead and added the Economic Democracy article into one section in the David Schweickart article.

The editor gave a full one week notice on the article that this was going to occur. The article was not gone, just added to the article to the David Schweickart article.

No, Wikipedia articles do not disappear just like that without any notice – just about everything done to any of the articles in Wikipedia can be fixed to the way they were in the past. Nothing stays permanent.

I also recommend reading up on some of Wikipedia's policies and guidelines which can be found at the Wikipedia:Policies and guidelines.

If you do require any help at all in the future, and blank spots you are unsure about Wikipedia, please, do not hesitate to contact me for assistance. This link will allow you to contact me, in the same way I contacted you with this message if you do require help in the future.

All the best, +spebi ~ 08:53, 25 June 2007 (UTC)

Please ignore the striked-out text – it appears I was partially incorrect, after uncovering some further information provided by other editors on the Help desk. My apologies, +spebi ~ 08:56, 25 June 2007 (UTC)


Hi again, David. Anonymity is definitely a preference at Wikipedia. Many users tend to choose a username that they can edit under without people knowing who they are in real life. I, myself chose "Spebi" as it was a nickname a friend had given me, even though it is quite similar to my real life name.
If you are concerned about your username revealing your real life self to others online, it is possible to change your username from your current username to an online alias, which is entirely up to you, as long as it follows the username policy. This process is called "renaming a user" and "usurping a user" to a different user name. Renaming is renaming your user account (keeping contributions, everything else) to a user account that is currently non-existent. Usurpation is renaming your user account to an already existing account (as long as the target account gives consent).
See Wikipedia:Changing username and Wikipedia:Changing username/Usurpations for more information and requests for your user account to be changed.
After reading both my messages, you will probably think that Wikipedia is governed by alot of policies and guidelines, and those who violate will be blocked from editing. It is quite easy to follow the policies and guidelines, and there aren't that many of them. And if you do happen to break a policy or a guideline, Wikipedia will never block you from reading or simply viewing Wikipedia.
As per usual, if you do require any future assistance, don't hesitate to contact me again, and I will respond. Thanks, +spebi ~ 05:39, 27 June 2007 (UTC)

License tagging for Image:JohnRasmus.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:JohnRasmus.jpg. Wikipedia gets thousands of images uploaded every day, and in order to verify that the images can be legally used on Wikipedia, the source and copyright status must be indicated. Images need to have an image tag applied to the image description page indicating the copyright status of the image. This uniform and easy-to-understand method of indicating the license status allows potential re-users of the images to know what they are allowed to do with the images.

For more information on using images, see the following pages:

This is an automated notice by OrphanBot. If you need help on selecting a tag to use, or in adding the tag to the image description, feel free to post a message at Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. 06:07, 8 July 2007 (UTC)

Jack Rasmus article[edit]

Hi again David.

The problems with your editing are:

  1. The image – you need a proper license tag, that says what license the image is licensed under. Who took the photo? Are they the holder of the copyright? If they are, don't bother putting a fair use tag on it, because Wikipedia's image use policy states that an fair-use image that has been uploaded just to show what the person looks like are unsuitable for the project, and that a free image should be located.
  2. Jack Rasmus, may not be notable enough for an encyclopedia article. Check the guidelines to see if he is.
  3. The comments at the end of the article do not belong there, and should be removed from the article immediately and added to the talk page. They are unencyclopedic content. Sebi [talk] 06:31, 8 July 2007 (UTC)

Social Credit article[edit]

Hi David,

I have responded to your message left on my talk page via e-mail (using the software's e-mail function).

workers cooperative article[edit]

Hi David,

Thanks for your comments on the workers cooperative article. Is the list of cooperative thinkers biased? Yes. Everything we do is biased but there are ways of overcoming it, such as providing examples of other thinkers. Please feel free to add the names of more co-operative thinkers to the list.

Best,

economic democracy article[edit]

The two sentences on common good finance are not advertising, but worthy information about a notable real world project doing just what Shweickart is talking about. Common good finance is a non-profit entity.

Economic Stability[edit]

I liked your long-ago brought up idea about creating a separate article from inflation to describe economic stability. It might only need to be a short index of other macroeconomic measures (besides inflation) that are generally considered part of economic stability, and a few words about institutional frameworks, etc. See my comments in the inflation discussion. If you have time to create it, I will help add. Mark Borgschulte (talk) 21:56, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

North American Union[edit]

I've removed the links to the Lendman articles, as they are clear violations of our neutral point of view and reliable sources rules. --Orange Mike | Talk 22:19, 18 November 2008 (UTC)

Please respond: Talk:Economic democracy#macro vs micro. Thanks. Lfstevens (talk) 16:09, 24 January 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for March 4[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited Economic democracy, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Surplus and Profit (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

MfD nomination of User:Social Credit/Sandbox[edit]

User:Social Credit/Sandbox, a page you substantially contributed to, has been nominated for deletion. Your opinions on the matter are welcome; please participate in the discussion by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Miscellany for deletion/User:Social Credit/Sandbox and please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~). You are free to edit the content of User:Social Credit/Sandbox during the discussion but should not remove the miscellany for deletion template from the top of the page; such a removal will not end the deletion discussion. Thank you.

I don't think you will have any objection to the above, although we could merge some of the edit history of that page into that of the article Social Credit if that would be worthwhile.

There is also the page User talk:Social Credit/Sandbox. That could be moved to become a subpage of Talk:Social Credit, particularly if we merge the edit history of the article; or deleted if it is no longer of any interest at all.

Please reply at the MfD page Wikipedia:Miscellany for deletion/User:Social Credit/Sandbox. – Fayenatic London (talk) 07:20, 1 June 2012 (UTC)

By all means, PLEASE DELETE THE PAGE: User:Social Credit/Sandbox.
Sorry for the confusion. I thought it had been deleted a long time ago.
Please DO NOT merge any of the edit history from this page into that of the article Social Credit.
Thanks for your help and for bringing this to my attention.
David Kendall (talk) 19:03, 6 June 2012 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done - you are welcome. I took it that the talk page of the sandbox should be deleted as well, but this could be retrieved if you wished. – Fayenatic London 13:16, 7 June 2012 (UTC)
