Comments you would like me to answer[edit]

I would be more than happy to offer my opinions on your articles!

  • David Edelstadt
    • Nice constructive article. Perhaps find a source for the image on the page?
  • Freie Arbeiter Stimme
    • Needs expanding. I have added the newspaper stub to it, as well as the "|thumb|" part of the image, so that the caption appears.
  • Yechi
    • Another good constructive article. Perhaps the image size should be reduced?
  • 770 Eastern Parkway
    • I would probably remove the links to the Rabbi's names becuase they are very likely not to be created, and could be regarded as a vanity article. Otherwise, good work!

Perhaps, if you would like other users to say what they like or dislike on certain articles that you have created, you might like to nominate the article for a peer review. This is when numerous users comment on what can be improved on the article. Even although it is mostly used for Featured Articles, it can still be used, however, without it wanting to have featured article status.

Hope these comments are of good use to you. Keep up the excellent work! --Kilo-Lima 22:01, 17 December 2005 (UTC)

some comments[edit]

I have cleaned up your Yechi article, and I hope that in the future you are more carefull regarding the terms that you use to describe chabad and it's followers. --Eliezer | £€åV€ m€ å m€§§åg€ 00:16, 18 December 2005 (UTC)

Just wondering, what type of personal involvement have you had with chabad, and what is your sources for your article of Yechi? --Eliezer | £€åV€ m€ å m€§§åg€ 00:26, 18 December 2005 (UTC)
If you don't mind telling me, Do you still consider yourself part of chabad? --Eliezer | £€åV€ m€ å m€§§åg€ 00:49, 18 December 2005 (UTC)

Thanks for answering my questions, I hope you enjoy wikipedia, and I look forward to improving the chabad related articles with you. Perhaps you can help out on improving the parts of the articles that speak about the good work that chabad has done in the past and is currently doing, instead of dwelling on Yechi and other such issues. --Eliezer | £€åV€ m€ å m€§§åg€ 00:54, 18 December 2005 (UTC)

removing at chabad.org[edit]

I have noticed that you are removing at chabad.org from many links. It is there so users can know in general what type of website they are going to before they go there, and you will see on my pages other names of oganizations by their website. I don't care either way but in the past some other users have specifically wanted the chabad.org part. --Eliezer | £€åV€ m€ å m€§§åg€ 19:49, 18 December 2005 (UTC)

no problem, I have rolled back those changes. Isaiah_Horowitz is a prime example of what I was saying. --Eliezer | £€åV€ m€ å m€§§åg€ 19:53, 18 December 2005 (UTC)

Nigun[edit]

Very nice, I have added some references. --Eliezer | £€åV€ m€ å m€§§åg€ 03:13, 20 December 2005 (UTC)

My Userbox[edit]

Thank you for the compliment. :·D I'd love to create a category to go with it, but I don't know how. All I know about editing I've learned from reading the source code of various pages. I just figured out how to make a userbox today. So ... how would one go about making a userbox category? --¿ WhyBeNormal ? 04:50, 20 December 2005 (UTC)

As John would have said: Happy Grimble![edit]

Haha, I used another of your userboxes!!! --Hermgirl 08:35, 20 December 2005 (UTC) Userbox Thief

atheos[edit]

It's just that 40-odd people are using that portion of the template, and if you put more than about 3 letters in the boxes don't line up the same. I was worried the change would screw things up for people who like to keep their userboxes all in a line. I think it might be a good idea to ask around and see what people think before making a change that's going to affect the look of dozens of people's user pages. (I'm not upset, I just think you should have proposed this on the talk page first.) - AdelaMae (talk - contribs) 11:13, 20 December 2005 (UTC)

Hmmm. Right off the bat I find mostly sciency ones. 40px Nuclear energy icon.jpg AlphaHelixSection (yellow).svg Exquisite-font.png I'm going to bed now. - AdelaMae (talk - contribs) 11:40, 20 December 2005 (UTC)
Speaking of userboxes, I've made the flexitarian one into a template so that we can have a nice category for flexitarian Wikipedians. - AdelaMae (talk - contribs) 23:49, 20 December 2005 (UTC)

Humanist userbox[edit]

Hi, seeing all your userboxes, I thought perhaps you'd be interested in this one :) {{user humanist}} Larix 11:42, 20 December 2005 (UTC)

I took the lennonist, as I'm not a vegan, not an anarchist and not really sceptic too, sorry ;) Larix 12:26, 20 December 2005 (UTC)

Skeptic userbox[edit]

User:Jokermage/User_Astrology How does that look?
- Jokermage "Timor Mentum Occidit" 16:56, 27 December 2005 (UTC)

Check it now. Jokermage "Timor Mentum Occidit" 17:12, 27 December 2005 (UTC)
If you want to merge it to the zodiac template, go ahead. I'll switch over to {{User Zodiac}}. Jokermage "Timor Mentum Occidit" 17:18, 27 December 2005 (UTC)

I'm switching the image from Occam to James Randi, who is one of leading voices of skepticism today. I wanted to use Carl Sagan (more appropriate since Sagan was an astronomer), but the image for Sagan has a Copyright warning. If the copyright is resolved and we can use it, I will switch from Randi to Sagan. Jokermage "Timor Mentum Occidit" 08:12, 31 December 2005 (UTC)

Your repeated removal of comments on your user talk page[edit]

Please do not remove comments made on your user talk page. This is considered uncivil. - ulayiti (talk) 19:06, 20 December 2005 (UTC)

From Wikipedia:Talk page: 'Actively erasing personal messages without replying (if a reply would be appropriate or polite) will probably be interpreted as hostile. In the past, this kind of behavior has been viewed as uncivil, and this can become an issue in arbitration or other formal proceedings.'
About me 'stalking' you, well, I just noticed that you had posted welcome messages and vandal warnings to people's user pages instead of their user talk pages. I notified you that you shouldn't do this, and you removed my comment. I restored it with a note that you shouldn't remove comments from your user talk page like that, and you removed it again without any kind of acknowledgement whatsoever. I am aware that you're not a vandal, but I was merely pointing out that if you do that in the future someone might think you are. So no biting here. :) - ulayiti (talk) 21:31, 20 December 2005 (UTC)

Wikify tags[edit]

Wikify tags should not be used with subst:. They should be used as normal templates. QQ 00:58, 21 December 2005 (UTC)

Gotcha! Daykart

User templates[edit]

Hi. Just an opinionated comment. It seems that an Anarchist user template should be black and white; black and red is generally more associated with Anarchist Communism, Anarcho-Syndicalism, and others of the sort, whereas the pure Anarchist flag is nothing but black. If I knew how to construct templates, I'd make one as such. Just something to think about.

Misuse of Template:Disambig[edit]

Please see Manual_of_Style_(disambiguation_pages) before adding it to pages such as urchin where it doesn't belong. -- 68.6.40.203 14:09, 21 December 2005 (UTC)

Gotcha!
I think it could be turned into an disambiguation page, but the main meaning of "urchin" would need its own page which would be linked to just as for the band, film, and company; the disambiguation page has to be a "non-article" page according to the style guideline. -- 68.6.40.203 14:31, 21 December 2005 (UTC)
Done! Daykart 17:51, 21 December 2005 (UTC)

Chanter template[edit]

Nope, not angry at all. Accidents happen. Easily fixed. —Preost talk contribs 22:07, 21 December 2005 (UTC)

Template:User en-L-0[edit]

I'm not sure what it is that isn't working for you. You've got the Category:User en-L-0 included, and those who put the template on their userpages are getting included in the category. What else isn't working? —Preost talk contribs 22:14, 21 December 2005 (UTC)

As per your request on User:Daykart/Userboxes[edit]

…"make" in "If he make a mistake" ought to be "makes". That is all. —Saric (Talk) 22:53, 21 December 2005 (UTC)

  • Yes, it is the clever use of irony.

Translator list[edit]

You mention at Talk:Yiddish language that you are a native speaker. Can I encourage you to sign up at Wikipedia:Translators_available#Yiddish-to-English? As you can see, we have only one person signed up there. While there are almost no articles in the Yiddish Wikipedia, it's not that unusual for someone to need translation help with a text they need to cite for an English-language article. - Jmabel | Talk 05:00, 22 December 2005 (UTC)

Actually, there's only one Wikipedian willing to be a translator. I am user:atheistrabbi, I was posting for several weeks and then forgot my password. If you have the ability, or know someone who has the ability, I'd appreciate if the account got deleted.

Also, despite my recent conversion to GNU Linux and Mozilla Firefox, I still have know idea how to type Hebrew alphabet in Wikipedia. I definitely am not in the mood of cut-and-pasting or typing awfully long character strings. I need to be able to either type on the keyboard or click around in the little box downstairs like when I'm writing in the Greek alphabet. Also, I need to figure out how to configure my browser so that the vowels go under the letters instead of being counted as a character in and of themselves; it makes it really difficult to read. Once that little hurdle is out of the way, I'm more than willing to contribute in any way necessary. In addition to being a native speaker of Yiddish, I work as an independent researcher and translator of Yiddish-language materials. And yes, I do take requests. Daykart 01:49, 23 December 2005 (UTC)

I don't know the details of how to get accounts closed or merged; it's out there somewhere in the Community Portal; I'm virtually certain it takes a developer, and hence tends not to happen. However, you don't need any "magic" to redirect the user page and user talk page to your new account, and I suggest that you do that.
On the typing thing: have you asked over at the Hebrew Wikipedia? I have only a bare clue how that is properly done on Microsoft systems, and no idea how it is done on GNU Linux. Browser should be irrelevant. -- Jmabel | Talk 07:12, 23 December 2005 (UTC)

Wikipedia:WikiProject Userboxes[edit]

WikiThanks.png Please join WikiProject Userboxes

I hope you don't mind but I couldn't bear to wait, so I have put your idea into practice. I do however need your help in getting the project going, and making the page a little more detailed. Feel free to contact me on my talk page, or on IRC ect. Hope to hear from you! Ian13ID:540053 12:55, 22 December 2005 (UTC)


Which I must say, is a pretty neat idea. I am going to find out how to do pretty tables and 'vandalise' the 'I made this' section of your user page with it, if that's ok :) --Alf melmac 19:01, 23 December 2005 (UTC)

Ian, thanks for starting up this project. I'll contribute to the best of my abilities. Daykart 05:07, 27 December 2005 (UTC)
Alf, no problem, go right ahead. Daykart 05:07, 27 December 2005 (UTC)

Hebrew Alphabet[edit]

Your edits to User talk:Markklimowitz[edit]

Writing the real name of someone on wikipedia when that person may not want his name posted publicly is against wikipedia rules. Please be more carefull in the future. --Eliezer | £€åV€ m€ å m€§§åg€ 04:56, 27 December 2005 (UTC)

Even if said user is a vandal of the worst variety? Okay, I'll just yell at him in person. Daykart 05:09, 27 December 2005 (UTC)

That would be better, but you may want to speak to him nicely explaining to him how wikipedia can be used for the good, and how he can work with other to improve it. --Eliezer | £€åV€ m€ å m€§§åg€ 05:42, 27 December 2005 (UTC)

That might work. But then again, he is a Lubavitcher. Daykart 05:45, 27 December 2005 (UTC)

You can try explaining to him that he is not the only Lubavitcher on wikipedia, and that other Lubavitchers have been able to work with others on improving the articles. The fact that he is a Lubavitcher is a plus because that means that he has alot of knoledge on Chassidus related subjects which wikipedia could use alot of help on. Let him know that if he is willing to agree to the rules of wikipedia and not vandalise, that he should let me know and I will unblock him. --Eliezer | £€åV€ m€ å m€§§åg€ 05:54, 27 December 2005 (UTC)

I will let him know, But now I feel left out. I too have alot of knowledge on Chasidus related subjects, point me in the right direction and I will help. I'm not your average Lubavitcher Freiack, I was one of the most learned and most Chassidisheh students in my class. You know, the kind who stays up at a Farbrengen until 4am and nonetheless comes to Seder Chasidus at 7:30am. My reasons for leaving the system had very little to do with an inability or unwillingness to conform. Oh yeah, and if you stop by Oholei Torah this Thursday night, feel free to say hi. I'll be the guy with a blond beard, long blond hair, and a tiny Yarmulka. Daykart 06:11, 27 December 2005 (UTC)

The kind that stays up until 4am and then comes to Chassidus at 7:30 is usually falling asleep over his Maamor not to mention the hangover. Something to consider is the age that you left the system, the last few years of Zal is when you would have learnt chassidus at the deepest levels of all your years in Yeshiva. I don't know the exact year that you left yeshiva, but if it was when you were 18, then you missed 2 years of potentialy learning chassidus at a deeper level than ever before. Regarding articles related to chassidus that need work. There is all the Sefirot, and various levels of Seder Hishtalshelus which most of the articles deal more with the non jewish view than the Jewish one. Also what is missing is the Chassidus part of the Kabbalah related articles, meaning how to practically appy this to your day to day service of G-d and performance of mitzvot. I would do it but I get lazy...But if you are feeling left out those articles are a great place to start. --Eliezer | £€åV€ m€ å m€§§åg€ 06:29, 27 December 2005 (UTC)

I figured you'd come up with a Shtech like that. Only the Leil Shishi Farbrengens last until 4am; and with three hours of sleep, one is refreshed enough to stay awake throughout the entire day Friday. Although I left Yeshivah at the age of 18, I didn't quit learning Niglah or Chasidus when I dropped out. Actually, my Chaverim comment to me that only my Chitzoiniyus has changed, and I agree with them. It's hard to explain, but if you listen to me speak, (particularly about anarchism,) you will understand what I mean. I'll start working on those articles sometime this week. Freilichen Chanukah! Daykart 06:41, 27 December 2005 (UTC)

I did not know you when you were in Yeshiva, I only know from what I read online. But I'll take your word that you have continued to learn after you left yeshiva, hopefully we can get some of these articles cleaned up. Have a happy Chanukah. --Eliezer | £€åV€ m€ å m€§§åg€ 06:48, 27 December 2005 (UTC)

Personal attacks[edit]

Daykart, please refrain from personal attacks such as on Talk:Chaim Yehuda Krinsky. Calling another editor names with the obvious intent of offending falls under this policy. JFW | T@lk 09:19, 27 December 2005 (UTC)

See my reply on that page; and my name is Sholom, not Daykart. Daykart 16:42, 27 December 2005 (UTC)
You can change your nickname using Special:Preferences, then people will know to call you Sholom. Ashibaka tock 02:50, 29 December 2005 (UTC)

Moving pages and templates[edit]

Greetings.

I noticed that you are part of the effort to move all the userbox templates to a name of the form Template:User $FOO, where $FOO is the name of the original template.

It is almost always preferable to move such pages using the "move" link at the top of your page (it's next to the "Watch" link), rather than cutting-and-pasting the contents of the page into a new page. When you move the page, all of the edit history for the page is retained, which is necessary for the GFDL requirements.

Just thought I'd mention it.

All the best.

Labels[edit]

Excuse the unsolicited communication, but I noticed your statement, elsewhere, "... my philosophy is post-Spinoza anti-Cartesian proto-Ni[e]tzsche anarcho-Judaism; part green, part red, part purple, part gold." ... Now, for someone who professes to be an anarchist, you seem rather keen on identifying with crowds, don't you? Just a thought. ElectricRay 18:42, 27 December 2005 (UTC)

Anarchism is not about avoiding identification with crowds, it's about resisting all forms of hierarchy and coercion. And besides, nowhere in that statement to I identify with a crowd. Daykart 19:07, 27 December 2005 (UTC)
is not compulsively labelling oneself simply a way of establishing ones place in "the" hierarchy? Like having a Ramones badge on your schoolbag: "hey, I'm cool, I'm one of these"? Do anarchists really like to define themselves like that?
By way of completely unrelated enquiry, and out of sheer curiosity, what is "anarcho-Judaism"? ElectricRay 00:03, 28 December 2005 (UTC)

770 Eastern Parkway[edit]

Nice page, and long overdue. The only change I made was the change the phrase "the rebbe laid the cornerstone..." to "Schneerson laid the cornerstone...". To a cimplete outsider it was never spelled out that Schneerson was the Rebbe, so they might not realize it means the same person. (As I said, a very minor change). Also, a little section the whole plaque controversy might be in order, just make sure to stick to verifiable facts and timelines so as not to tick off anyone. :-) --Bachrach44 18:03, 29 December 2005 (UTC)

Hi again! I wanted to inform you there is a vote going on about wether it should be allowed to list yourself in a POV category.

Image copyright problem with Image:Moshiach.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Moshiach.jpg. However, the image may soon be deleted unless we can determine the copyright holder and copyright status. The Wikimedia Foundation is very careful about the images included in Wikipedia because of copyright law (see Wikipedia's Copyright policy).

The copyright holder is usually the creator, the creator's employer, or the last person who was transferred ownership rights. Copyright information on images on Wikipedia is signified using copyright templates. The three basic license types on Wikipedia are open content, public domain, and fair use. Find the appropriate template in Wikipedia:Image copyright tags and place it on the image page like this: {{TemplateName}}.

Please signify the copyright information on any other images you have uploaded or will upload. Remember that images without this important information can be deleted by an administrator. You can get help on image copyright tagging from Wikipedia talk:Image copyright tags. -- Carnildo 18:15, 1 February 2006 (UTC)

Participant alert regarding Wikiproject on Advertising[edit]

The Wikiproject No Ads, created as a backlash against the Answers.com deal, has served an important function in providing a space for users to express their disagreement with the Foundation proposal. While the current controversies about userboxes raise questions about political and social advocacy on Wikipedia, there should be greater flexibility regarding advocacy about Wikipedia in the Wikipedia namespace. Reported and linked by Slashdot and other press sources as a unique and spontaneous occurence in Wikipedia history, it has apparently had some impact as, despite being scheduled to begin in January, not a peep has been heard about the trial and proposed sponsored link since the deal's controversial announcement months ago. Currently, however, there is an attempt to delete the project or move it off Wikipedia altogether. Since the Foundation has provided no additional information and has not attempted to answer the specific questions that participants in the project raised, it is unclear if the Answers.com deal has been abandoned or simply delayed. Until the situation becomes more clear, I believe the group should still have a place in the Wikipedia namespace. Sincerely, Tfine80 23:57, 9 February 2006 (UTC)

John MacDougall[edit]

You recently flagged John MacDougall for "notability".

Mac was a regional giant in the news business - the very voice and face of the infant TV news business in the upper midwest as the form took shape. It would not be an exaggeration to say he was the Walter Cronkite of the upper midwest from 1955 to 1975.

While you may be unfamiliar with upper midwest broadcast history, it'd be a mistake to concluse MacDougall was not notable; he is certainly more than notable enough by Wikipedia standards.

Hey, I dont know you, you dont know me. I also dont speak/read/write yiddish.
