"HE KILLED A GUY", ad nauseam ;)[edit]

FYI, I've added something to the WP:AIV "complex" page about this whole weird business. Hopefully somebody more l33t than myself can do something soon. Yansa 05:06, 8 April 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know. It appears that Dalip Singh really did KILL A GUY!!!, though. Holy mackerel. : ) dbtfztalk 05:16, 8 April 2006 (UTC)

Tawkerbot2[edit]

What I think happened was in the split second before the bot grabbed the page you reverted and it grabbed the wrong text. Sorry about that, I'll see what I can do to stop that (that's the first time I think I've seen that happen) -- Tawker 05:12, 8 April 2006 (UTC)

Cool, thanks. dbtfztalk 05:17, 8 April 2006 (UTC)

RE:LZ Clean up[edit]

All the music pages are spammed to death. I am quietly trying to weed out the fluff. I need to be more strict with myself though. WP:EL...by the rule...would mean the loss of links to pages like Electric Magic and Achilles Last Stand. Both are pages that have been around for years and have a decent amount of integrity. But, rules are rules. <sigh> I just didn't have the heart to hack 'em myself. All in due time , I guess. Take care! Anger22 03:22, 13 April 2006 (UTC)

Yeah, occasionally fan sites are really good, reliable sources of information - sometimes even better than the official sites. But usually they're just spam and should be zapped with extreme prejudice. :) dbtfztalk 03:40, 13 April 2006 (UTC)

Sharting[edit]

Hi. I moved the "sharting" content back to Sharting and redirected Shitting oneself to Fecal incontinence. That just seemed more appropriate to me. Of course, you should feel free to change it back if you feel differently. Believe me, I'm not trying to pick a fight over this. That would truly be the lamest edit war ever. :-) P.S. "I sharted!" dbtfztalk 15:51, 13 April 2006 (UTC)

I think it's good stuff, but I am concerned that if the page isn't allowed some room for expansion, then it could be be deleted the same as its predecessor at Shart. See also Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Shart (The result of the debate was Speedy delete as A 5 (was already deleted 3 times before)) and the Shart entry at wiktionary. Ewlyahoocom 02:59, 14 April 2006 (UTC)
It's a real phenomenon that everyone has experienced, but people generally don't talk about it, so it's hard to find respectable sources. As far as I know, "shart" is the first and only succinct term for it. I think that even the current stub goes beyond a dicdef in providing cultural context. It's one of the things that the most recent Oscar winner for Best Actor is most famous for. (Sad, perhaps, but true.) The article could be expanded by, e.g., providing some explanation of the physiological conditions that lead to sharting. I believe Charles Bukowski may have discussed sharting at some point in his writing (though he wouldn't have used that term for it). Also, I'm pretty sure Howard Stern has discussed the phenomenon at length on his radio show. These things could be covered in the article. I suppose the current content could be moved to a section of Fecal incontinence, but that's a very "serious" article and sharting is kind of silly (though it's very serious business if it happens to you in a public place). dbtfztalk 04:12, 14 April 2006 (UTC)
P.S. I'm going to post this discussion on the talk page for Sharting. Any further discussion on this should take place there, so other sharters can have easy access to it. dbtfztalk 04:19, 14 April 2006 (UTC)

AfD[edit]

Hey - thanks, I got distracted and missed the third step. I don't want to seem rude - I see you've done some great things for wikipedia. Cheers! --Matt 03:24, 15 April 2006 (UTC)

No worries -- I make it a point not to take the stuff I do here too seriously or take criticism personally. I'm actually genuinely curious to see what others think of those lists. I think they're reasonably notable and interesting, but I'm biased of course, having created them myself. :-) dbtfztalk 03:35, 15 April 2006 (UTC)

Awwww....[edit]

Until now I thought I was the only person who'd put an elephant crushing a guy on his userpage. We both quote Manchurian Candidate too... CanadianCaesar Et tu, Brute? 04:03, 15 April 2006 (UTC)

I guess great (or, in my case, mediocre) minds think alike. At least we have different elephants. By the way, I hadn't seen Evil reptilian kitten-eater from another planet until I just checked out your user page. Best. Article title. Ever. That's what I love about Wikipedia. You'd never see that in Encyclopedia Britannica. :-) dbtfztalk 04:14, 15 April 2006 (UTC)

Hey[edit]

[1] Was uncalled for. Please read WP:CIVIL and WP:NPA. --Doc ask? 22:13, 15 April 2006 (UTC)

Check who I was actually referring to as a "moron." ;-) dbtfztalk 22:20, 15 April 2006 (UTC)
OK, sorry. But perhaps you need to make the self-deprication a little more obvious. It didn't occur to me it was a self-reference. --Doc ask? 22:24, 15 April 2006 (UTC)
You're right, of course. I was just being a little mischievous. :-) dbtfztalk 22:29, 15 April 2006 (UTC)

VandalProof 1.1 is Now Available For Download[edit]

Happy Easter to all of you, and I hope that this version may fix your current problems and perhaps provide you with a few useful new tools. You can download version 1.1 at User:AmiDaniel/VandalProof. Let me warn you, however, to please be extremely careful when using the new Rollback All Contributions feature, as, aside from the excessive server lag it would cause if everyone began using it at once, it could seriously aggitate several editors to have their contributions reverted. If you would like to experiment with it, though, I'd be more than happy to use my many sockpuppets to create some "vandalism" for you to revert. If you have any problems downloading, installing, or otherwise, please tell me about them at User:AmiDaniel/VP/Bugs and I will do my best to help you. Thanks. AmiDaniel (Talk) 06:44, 16 April 2006 (UTC)


For someone that does not want any article to reference a commercial connection, you sure are pushing this product......

Crop circles[edit]

I have been attempting to factualize the Wikipedia page about the Crop Circle phenomenon, and the page keeps being reset to the extremely uninformed and ridicule-laden misrepresentation that has been polluting the Wikipedia propject for quite some time now. I have been doing my part to help rectify this problem, having looked deeply into the subject over several years, including field work and interviews with scientists and other long-term researchers. As I see it, there are 2 possibilities to explain the long-standing Wikipedia Crop Circle piece: 1) ignorance, perhaps acquired through "official story" channels such as Fox news etc, 2) intentional disinfo intended to steer attention away from the subject. Do you have any advice for me? THANKS -- steve —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Stvjns (talkcontribs) .

Yes. Discuss it on the talk page of the article. I have no interest in this issue. dbtfztalk 20:40, 16 April 2006 (UTC)

Alex Duerre is not speediable[edit]

Dbtfz, you tagged Alex Duerre for deletion, but it is not speedy-deletable, because the article does assert the notability of the individual: the assertion is that he was recognized by Congress for bravery. That does not mean that it is necessarily a valid assertion, but does mean that it cannot be deleted without further discussion. If you believe the article should be deleted, you should list it for deletion at WP:AFD (where it will most likely be deleted). Truly, JDoorjam Talk 04:24, 17 April 2006 (UTC)

Oops, my mistake. Thanks for the notice. dbtfztalk 04:31, 17 April 2006 (UTC)

DJ P Page neutrality[edit]

I am editing the page to be simply a list of facts. (It had been up for maybe 5 minutes before you disputed the neutrality)

Contact me back if you feel there should be more changes made. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by B-Dubb (talkcontribs) .

(Reponded on B-Dubb's talk page.) dbtfztalk 00:51, 23 April 2006 (UTC)

DJ P page[edit]

Hey there. I have made some changes to the DJ P page (and added a redirect to D.J.P since that's what he really goes by... I started with DJ P page because that's where people have already been linking to).

I started with his official bio, which is why it had a slant to it. I have gone through and deleted everything that in MY opinion seems to have a slant, and done some rewriting. I figured I would ask you if you felt like taking another glance at it just to make sure I didn't overlook anything.

Thanks again for your help, this is the first article I have written so it's a learning process.

B-Dubb 02:06, 23 April 2006 (UTC)


Be careful, he likes to give his personal, biased opinions on entries, and not objective views and assistance. Just look at the rants from the pages he has defaced in the past.......

Question[edit]

Wikipedia is feeling too combative to me these days, so I thought I'd ask something nice: Are you at all interested in adminship? If so, what are your views on IAR? If I nominated or supported you, though, it would be later (you're still a bit new) and some participation outside AfD would be nice (as if I'm the one to talk :P) Just thought I'd get you thinking about it. CanadianCaesar Et tu, Brute? 09:44, 23 April 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for asking. Yes, I would probably be interested (eventually), but I agree that I should accrue more time and experience first. Maybe in a few months. :-) dbtfztalk 15:10, 23 April 2006 (UTC)

Could you peek at something for me?[edit]

I'm fairly n00b at writing Wikipedia articles, but I noticed the 'context' banner on the VLIW page. I happen to have some VLIW architecture background, so I expanded the introduction and tweaked some other aspects as well. Since you added the 'context' banner, could you take a look and see if my edit is sufficient? --Mr z 17:13, 19 May 2006 (UTC)

VandalProof 1.2 Now Available[edit]

Vandalprooflock.jpg

After a lenghty, but much-needed Wikibreak, I'm happy to announce that version 1.2 of VandalProof is now available for download! Beyond fixing some of the most obnoxious bugs, like the persistent crash on start-up that many have experienced, version 1.2 also offers a wide variety of new features, including a stub-sorter, a global user whitelist and blacklist, navigational controls, and greater customization. You can find a full list of the new features here. While I believe this release to be a significant improvement over the last, it's nonetheless nowhere near the end of the line for VandalProof. Thanks to Rob Church, I now have an account on test.wikipedia.org with SysOp rights and have already been hard at work incorporating administrative tools into VandalProof, which I plan to make available in the near future. An example of one such SysOp tool that I'm working on incorporating is my simple history merge tool, which simplifies the process of performing history merges from one article into another. Anyway, if you haven't already, I'd encourage you to download and install version 1.2 and take it out for a test-drive. As always, your suggestions for improvement are always appreciated, and I hope that you will find this new version useful. Happy editing! --AmiDaniel (talk) 02:16, 21 May 2006 (UTC)

Talk:Truck balls[edit]

You posted a judgment on this subject. Not kool.

Judgments are not proper, and you seem to be defacing a lot of entries slanted toward your personal opinions. With thousands of these products sold, world wide, you should really stifle your opinion.

I was wrong. Truck balls are kool. Mea culpa,

informal vs formal fallacies[edit]

I was wondering if you could help me out on a matter of logic, is there a difference between a formal fallacy and an informal fallacy? It relates the the article on Begging the question which appears to contradict itself Talk:Begging_the_question#This_article_appears_to_contrdict_itself_tag. Thanks, Grumpyyoungman01 05:19, 19 November 2006 (UTC)

I don't have time to look into this, but offhand I'd say that begging the question is definitely an informal fallacy. Its basic form is "A; therefore, A" which is formally valid in classical logic and most non-classical logics. Hope that helps. dbtfztalk 22:48, 19 November 2006 (UTC)

Orphaned fair use image (Image:GodfleshImage.jpg)[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:GodfleshImage.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is 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 under fair use (see our fair use policy).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. 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 fair use images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you.

Ringo Starr and malapropism[edit]

Hi Dbtfz - a while back you expressed doubt at Talk:Malapropism that "ringoisms" such as "Tomorrow never knows" were malapropisms. I have provided documentary support for them being malapropisms, in the form of published references and a radio interview with John Lennon. Unfortunately, one editor doesn't think that published references are enough to satisfy those claims... is it possible for you to have a look at the comments on the talk page and the references I have added to the article (you may need to check the history, due to the ongoing reversions), to see whether what I have added is enough to satisfy your doubts? Cheers, Grutness...wha? 01:05, 28 April 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Godflesh-Pure.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Godflesh-Pure.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 insure 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 fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. — Moe ε 10:52, 17 June 2007 (UTC)

Image:DennisMillerSI.jpg[edit]

I have tagged Image:DennisMillerSI.jpg as {{no rationale}}, because it does not provide a fair use rationale. If you believe the image to be acceptable for fair use according to Wikipedia policy, please provide a rationale explaining as much, in accordance with the fair use rationale guideline, on the image description page. Please also consider using {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair_use. Thank you. Videmus Omnia 01:41, 12 July 2007 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use Image:DennisMillerSI.jpg[edit]

Replaceable fair use

Thanks for uploading Image:DennisMillerSI.jpg. I notice the 'image' page specifies that the image is being used under fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first fair use criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed image could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this image is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the image 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 the fair use image by finding a freely licensed image of its subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or a similar) image under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our fair use criteria. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that fair use images which could be replaced by free-licensed alternatives will be deleted 7 days after this notification, per our Fair Use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Videmus Omnia 01:42, 12 July 2007 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Sing-Sing (band)[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Sing-Sing (band) requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a band or musician, but it does not credibly indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator. Sionk (talk) 11:18, 21 November 2015 (UTC)
