NOAC 2006[edit]

I am interviewing as many arrowmen as I can find on this website and was curious as to what you think about NOAC 2006. I am also curious to find out lodge names for Wikipedia users. I'm essentially trying to meet new people on Wikipedia who share a common interest. My lodge is the Anpetu-We Lodge chartered to the Greater St. Louis Area Council. If you would like to contribute to my listing, please place it on my userpage.

Yours in Brotherhood,

Talk page vandalism[edit]

Hi, np for the revert. The guy had just vandalized a page that was on my watchlist, and I noticed he had touched a couple other pages, and so I reverted those. I didn't report it, but he has since been blocked. I think the same guy has four accounts, which all are useless (they are just used to post things on each other's userpages, so it may be brought up as well: the four accounts are User:Gah12345, User:Blade 92, User:Wovelscotch and User talk:Wolvelscotch.

License tagging for Image:CT Map State BSA.PNG[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:CT Map State BSA.PNG. Wikipedia gets hundreds 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.

Eagle Scout[edit]

Please take a look at Wikipedia:Copyright problems, secifically the section "What's copyrighted?". I'm not trying to bite, just keeping things level. Please let me know if you have any questions on this. --Gadget850 ( Ed) 02:28, 23 May 2006 (UTC)

Look: you did a lot of good work here, but you added some stuff that we just couldn't use. That's been fixed now and I hope we are all past it. Hope to see you back on this. --Gadget850 ( Ed) 14:50, 24 May 2006 (UTC)

Scouting in Connecticut[edit]

I really like what you've done with the page, it's great, with three caveats.

  • 1 Like the rest of the Internet, Wikipedia abhors large strings of capital letters. Perhaps the way to get around this is to italicize what you now have in caps, or perhaps change the font color.
  • 2 Wikipedia also dislikes "List of..." anything. You can take that out anywhere it appears in the article, and it will sound much better. We changed all these from "List of councils in x state" to "Scouting in x state" specifically so that Wikipedia would not delete them, as it had done to the lists of OA lodges. That was a pity, as the fellow had put a lot of work into it, but lists are bad, m'kay?
  • 3 I don't understand the addition of [[Order of the Arrow|Honor societies]] where it is, can you explain?

I really like how you included the Girl Scout information, I believe this article should be held up as a model of how to do that. I don't know enough about the Girl Scouts, where did you obtain all that, and would you willing to add such info to each of the other states in like fashion?

Brother, this is a load of great work, thank you! Chris 00:55, 25 May 2006 (UTC)

Maybe I should merge the current council into the one subject heading of “Past and Present Councils”
Hi, David, actually, to show historical continuity, it is better to keep them separate. Chris 06:09, 26 May 2006 (UTC)
Do we need to identify each town in a district?
You can, I don't think it's necessary, but that's how the stub articles were written. Maybe make them a paragraph instead of a list. For my own homestate of Colorado, I just located each Council by county or geographic boundaries, but we have 64 counties to your eight. Maybe it makes more sense to least each city, or at least the boundary ones, for Connecticut. Chris 06:09, 26 May 2006 (UTC)
I also found 42 – 43 Boy Scout Camps, past and present, any suggestion how to add them?
For other states, I have been inserting them under the proper council they belong(ed) to. The hierarchy I was using (my idea, not canonical) was council, then camp, then OA, then districts... Chris 06:09, 26 May 2006 (UTC)

East Haven, Connecticut[edit]

Thank you for the message, though I didn't understand parts of it. My biggest problem with the section was the biased and original research-sounding tone; "best-loved annual events", "an excellent midway", "favorite Festival highlight", "very popular". Beloved town festivals, unless they attract large-scale attention, are not notable. I do, however, apologize for cutting the bit on the trolley museum; that was an error on my part, and I plan to re-add it. As for the talk page, well, I was bold. Cheers!

Coments and/or complaints[edit]

Vandalism? Why am i being accused of vandalism? Those other accounts are not mine either, I've never heard of Gah12345. And what pages that we "vandalised" are you talking about?-Wovelscotch 18:04, 2 June 2006 (UTC)

I have no idea. If you check above someone else mentioned your name, hence you should take this up with him/her. --dep369 19:11, 2 June 2006 (UTC)Dep369

"rv spam"[edit]

"rv" is short for "revert", and "spam" has come to be used as a generic term for links that are commercial, and/or whose only purpose appears to be to attract traffic, or simply don't have any encyclopedic content relevant to the article. Happy editing! -- Mwanner | Talk 17:37, 8 June 2006 (UTC)

East Haven, Connecticut[edit]

I did a quick look through the article. All I can say is that it still needs a lot of work (in fact, I wouldn't even recommend placing the article on peer review yet, since to me it looks as if there should be a clean up tag on the article instead). These are the problems that immediately stuck out:

  1. The history section is quite long with many one sentence paragraphs (which should be combined with other short paragraphs). Also, some areas aren't "wikified" (relevant words or phrases linked to other Wikipedia articles). I suggest you summarize that section so that one gets an overview of the town's history. If readers want the details, they can refer to books or websites that you might have used to write that section.
  2. There are a number of lists that I recommend that you don't include (e.g. individual schools, organizations). The organizations listed can apply to any other town (what makes them so important and unique to warrant inclusion?). As for schools, the statistics themselves can change from year to year, which adds to much article instability. It is best to give an overall number of students and schools instead of focusing on each one.
  3. The company listings in the economy section is too much. It is better to just mention the companies in passing. If the reader wants more details, they can refer to the company websites (last time I checked all three companies mentioned have their own websites).
  4. List more sources if possible. There are some claims that are not backed up. Also, you might want to write out the sources instead of merely including the URLs.
  5. Speaking of "wikified," WP:CONTEXT and WP:BTW has some useful guidelines you can follow.

It seems from your message that you want to someday get this article to featured status, though at the moment there are plenty of things that need to be addressed before anyone will consider it worthy of being on Wikipedia's front page.

Since I didn't personally work on this article, just out of curiosity which article did you look at? PentawingTalk 06:25, 13 June 2006 (UTC)

Orphaned fair use image (Image:SealOfNewHaven.PNG)[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:SealOfNewHaven.PNG. I notice the 'image' page currently specifies that the image is unlicensed for use on Wikipedia 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. Fritz S. (Talk) 17:39, 26 November 2006 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:CYC BSA1.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:CYC BSA1.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.

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.BetacommandBot 16:19, 4 June 2007 (UTC)

Image:J_A_Maturo.JPG[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:J_A_Maturo.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 {{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 any fair use images which are replaceable by free-licensed alternatives 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. – Quadell (talk) (random) 06:36, 8 July 2007 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Bartholomew F. Guida[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Bartholomew F. Guida has been proposed for deletion because it appears to have no references. Under Wikipedia policy, all newly created biographies of living persons must have at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article.

If you created the article, please don't be offended. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Referencing for beginners, or ask at the help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within ten days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one.

Speedy deletion nomination of William C. Celentano[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 William C. Celentano requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be a clear copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If the external website belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. If you are not the owner of the external website but have permission from that owner, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission. You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here.

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but 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 yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Sarahj2107 (talk) 00:36, 15 June 2012 (UTC)
