I saw your changes to the film processing section in the article on Kodachrome. There, you state that Dwayne's is the sole remaining processor of Kodachrome in the world. (I presume you mean the sole Kodak authorized processor. Is that true?) Did the Japanese lab give it up? Anoneditor 23:50, 21 February 2007 (UTC)

Reply:

In re Kodachrome processing:

Yes: Kodak's Lausanne plant shut down their K-Lab processor; and Horiuchi Color in Tokyo also just shut down their K-Lab as well. As of now, only Dwayne's is left; and, as I understand it, they have a full-sized K-14 cine processor, not a K-Lab.

Also, I just updated the Kodachrome page to add the link to the K-Lab technical manual Z-50, which also describes in detail the chemical, re-exposure and mechanical steps involved.

In re Kodachrome processing:

What's your source for this? The Horiuchi website, http://www.horiuchi-color.co.jp/index2/english/english.html, still (as of today) lists the K-14 process as one of the things it does. Anoneditor 23:16, 23 February 2007 (UTC)

Reply to reply to reply:

No, Horiuchi shut down their K-Lab; and removed the page from their English version of their website. My source is Kodak itself, as they stopped making the B-I-B (bag-in-box) chemistry required for the K-Lab. Dwayne's, with the sole K-14 line, buys K-14 soup in bulk and has an analytic lab to keep their process in control.

Striking Comments[edit]

It is completely unacceptable to strike other peoples comments on talk pages as you did in the Terry Shannon AfD. Users should only strike their own comments, and doing this to other peoples comments makes it look as if they have withdrawn their own statements. --Daniel J. Leivick 16:25, 22 February 2007 (UTC)

In fact, it's considered vandalism to do so -- please stop, as you may be blocked for editing other's comments during an AfD discussion.--LeflymanTalk 16:58, 22 February 2007 (UTC)

Information.svg Please do not remove Articles for deletion notices from articles or remove other people's comments in Articles for deletion pages, as you did with Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Terry Shannon. Doing so won't stop the discussion from taking place. You are however welcome to comment about the proposed deletion on the appropriate page. Thank you.--LeflymanTalk 18:41, 22 February 2007 (UTC)

Vandalism[edit]

Please take care how you use the word "vandalism"- see Wikipedia:Vandalism. Specifically, this edit summary is inappropriate. Redirects are not vandalism, and you don't get to avoid AFD by making a second article on the same topic. Friday (talk) 19:11, 22 February 2007 (UTC)

Please also take note that adding "vandalism warnings" to articles is entirely inappropriate and is not helping the situation. --- RockMFR 19:14, 22 February 2007 (UTC)

Yes, this is vandalism, when pertinent content is destroyed.

It's not vandalism. Do this again and I will block you. Friday (talk) 19:18, 22 February 2007 (UTC)

What are you doing?[edit]

What is the purpose of this edit? The talk page is where we discuss the article, not in the article itself. I know you're only doing what you think is right, but please be careful. Friday (talk) 19:41, 22 February 2007 (UTC)

Please stop forking[edit]

How many articles do you want about Terry Shannon? It would be better to work on all this in one place, and then consider breaking them out later if length is a concern. Friday (talk) 22:09, 22 February 2007 (UTC)

Along those lines, don't screw with the Signpost. It is rude and disruptive. Teke (talk) 01:17, 23 February 2007 (UTC)

Please help with formatting and reference style[edit]

I need some help formatting two tables and the reference link on the Speed Graphic page at the Graflex manufacturer history and Graflex model history sections.

In other words, I'm good at gathering info; not so good in formatting tables.

Thanks in advance! Dan Schwartz Expresso@Snip.Net

Looking into it... —Dgiest c 17:10, 27 February 2007 (UTC)
OK, made a Wiki markup table example at Speed Graphic. For the others, just follow that example... —Dgiest c 17:24, 27 February 2007 (UTC)
Also gave you an example of how to properly format a reference for citation of a website. —Dgiest c 17:34, 27 February 2007 (UTC)

Thank you! Discpad 17:01, 1 March 2007 (UTC)Dan Schwartz

Your edit summaries and talk page message locations[edit]

You do not have to sign your edits in the edit summary . It's already recorded and can be seen through page histories, watchlists, etc that you made the edit, not someone else. Please discontinue doing this as it clutters up the edit histories and it really doesn't tell us anything important that we already didn't know. Thank you. --pIrish 16:32, 4 March 2007 (UTC)

Also, please do not move messages around on talk pages as you did to the chinchilla article. Old messages should remain where they are to not give rise to confusion about when they were added. It doesn't have anything to do with importance, it's just when someone decided to discuss something. New messages, like the one you included about sugar in the diet, should always go at the bottom of the page. I can't stress this enough. New messages ALWAYS go at the bottom of the page, not the top. That's the way discussion topics flow and most editors know to look at the bottom of the page to see if something else has been brought up. If it's just plopped in the middle, your questions may go unanswered for a very long time unless someone watching the page catches it. --pIrish 16:45, 4 March 2007 (UTC)

Rickshaw Inn[edit]

A tag has been placed on Rickshaw Inn, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a very short article providing little or no context to the reader. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content.

Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself. If you plan to expand the article, you can request that administrators wait a while for you to add contextual material. To do this, affix the template {{hangon}} to the page and state your intention on the article's talk page. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. Realkyhick 06:52, 9 March 2007 (UTC)


Holy sh*t! It's 2AM; and I just started the damn Rickshaw Inn page. It wil take a few days as I research more of this inn's illustrious history. Our family has been involved with Cherry Hill for a half-century; and there is much to say as I go back to the Cherry Hill Library's township history room in the basement... Which my parents have contributed many artifacts to.
* Is it OK to remove the "speedy deletion" tag?
* How did people even detect this page to begin with?

Thanks! Dan Schwartz Discpad 07:33, 9 March 2007 (UTC) Cherry Hill, NJ

Hi, Dan. I have removed the speedy tag and marked it as a stub instead. People often find pages like this through Special:Recentchanges or similar tools. See Wikipedia:Recent changes patrol for more info. I agree that the speedy on your article was a little hasty. A good way to avoid problems like that is by starting out with a good lead paragraph so that people can tell what you're talking about and why it's important. Please don't think too badly of Realkyhick; if you look at how much junk is entered into Wikipedia all the time, you'll see how easy is to mistake a struggling new article for something that won't make it. Hope that helps! William Pietri 07:40, 9 March 2007 (UTC)

(edit conflict, a little more specific reply) Don't remove the tag if you can't make it meet the requirements of the policies listed above. I suggest creating User:Discpad/Sandbox, writing it there and then creating the article once it meets the notability requirements. Many users monitor Special:Newpages and tag articles that meet the criteria for speedy deletion. John Reaves (talk) 07:43, 9 March 2007 (UTC)
John - I started several pages as part of a project to "kick-start" a project documenting the illustrious history of Cherry Hill. Not every contributor is a 20-something, `ya know...

Terry Shannon AfD[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg Please stop. If you continue to vandalize Wikipedia, as you did to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Log/2007 March 13, you will be blocked from editing. . EliminatorJR Talk 02:33, 13 March 2007 (UTC)

The topic of deleting the Terry Shannon article has been debated; and is the subject of Terry Shannon nominated for Wikipedia deletion; Terry Shannon gets Wikipedia reprieve and Terry Shannon archive material wanted for Wikiporpoise Discpad 04:54, 13 March 2007 (UTC)

Emphasizing my remark[edit]

May I ask why you want my comment emphasized? I'm curious now. -Amarkov moo! 04:28, 13 March 2007 (UTC)

I don't think you're quite familiar with the readership of The Inquirer and (especially) El Reg in I.T. circles. Part of the appeal is their sarcastic writing style. But, I suggest as a starting point that you call up the articles in those respected journals on most any I.T. topic. Dan Schwartz, Expresso@Snip.Net Discpad 04:38, 13 March 2007 (UTC)
Oh, I don't deny that they have appeal. But not everything that has appeal is necessary reliable. And sarcasm is not at all condusive to reliability. -Amarkov moo! 04:41, 13 March 2007 (UTC)
Um... Okay, is there any particular reason you've started emphasizing everything I say? -Amarkov moo! 04:49, 13 March 2007 (UTC)
Wikiball.svg This user wants to capture a Shedinja.



So when your remarks hit El Reg, people the world over will have no trouble finding them. Discpad 04:53, 13 March 2007 (UTC)
Would you like me to start a subpage for you, then? It's much less annoying than emphasis on everything. -Amarkov moo! 04:55, 13 March 2007 (UTC)

MfD on AfD[edit]

Hi --- I fixed your MfD nom. Anyway I could be wrong, but as far as I know, AfD discussions generally themselves aren't subject to deletion unless they were created as clear vandalism (e.g. sockpuppet of a banned user). You can just express your comments on the AfD itself (e.g. by putting in an opinion of "Speedy Close"). Cheers, cab 06:55, 13 March 2007 (UTC)

Terry Shannon[edit]

  1. Your deletion of the AfD was vandalism. It is not up to you to decide whether an AfD should continue or not.
  2. If you actually read the AfD, you'll notice that I actually voted for the Terry Shannon article to be KEPT.
  3. If you're that bothered about it, why didn't you improve the article after the last deletion review, so it didn't get nominated again?
The problem is that the article HAS been improved; but references and footnotes have been REMOVED.Discpad 11:37, 13 March 2007 (UTC)
  1. I deleted the references? I did no such thing (see the history page), and I don't appreciate personal attacks, especially untrue ones.
  2. I have nothing against Terry Shannon, only against people who don't follow Wikipedia's rules.
  3. Please WP:CIVIL.
  4. Oh, and I know all about "old" computing. I used to program Honeywell mainframes in Cobol and JCL. Thanks,EliminatorJR Talk 07:48, 13 March 2007 (UTC)

More on AfD issue about Terry Shannon...[edit]

I received this interesting email on Tuesday morning:


Here's the thing.

Notability on Wikipedia demands that someone have articles written about them, for the most part. So a journalist must win an award, or be interviewed by someone else as a 'personality'. Clearly, this is a bad way to determine notability - many good journalists stay under the radar to precisely avoid being publicly profiled, and the Wikipedia guidelines determine notability purely relative to celebrity.

There is an exception to this, which is where someone makes a important contribution to their field. This clearly covers Terry, but the Wikians are totally anal about applying it, since its hard to prove. However, it does clearly cover Terry, and so it shouldn't be necessary to have Mike write something about him - that will detract from the main issue.

I think what's interesting is that since the clean up of the page I worked on over the last couple of weeks, the current AfD has got most of the Wikipedia community suggesting to keep the article. This Amarkov character is just one pissed off kid - the rest of the community seems to be in favour of finding more sources. I don't think we have too much to worry about on this occasion.

Enough said...

Whoever told you that was wrong. Articles need sources, period. There is no exception to WP:V if a guy can be shown to have made notable contributions to his field. Due to new information, I do not believe that to apply in this case, but that does not mean that articles don't need sources. -Amarkov moo! 02:41, 15 March 2007 (UTC)

Terry Shannon[edit]

hi, those templates always go on the talk pages. Take a look at this link. You can see all the pages that link to that template. See all the (transclusion) ones? Those are the pages it's used on as opposed to just linked to, for a user's reference. Actually, if you do see any actual articles listed on the later pages of that search--you'd want to move them over to talk instead. - Denny 13:12, 13 March 2007 (UTC)

NTFS[edit]

"Native Transactional"? Provide a source. AlistairMcMillan 23:02, 13 March 2007 (UTC)

If you are right, why is there not a single result for "Native Transactional File System" on microsoft.com? AlistairMcMillan 23:06, 13 March 2007 (UTC)
Alistair, yes, it's Native Transactional, not New Technology: It's a common mistake; and the name is derived from the transactional log used to self-repair (via unwinding) disk errors.
I think you're confusing the meaning of the "NT" in "Windows NT" which indeed is "New Technology" with the "NT" portion of "NTFS"
I'll have to pull out my old NT books from the mid-90's and cite accordingly. Dan Schwartz, Expresso@Snip.Net Discpad 23:10, 13 March 2007 (UTC)

You know what is amusing. Searching Google for the words "Native Transactional File System" and "NTFS" brings up about twenty results. Nearly all of them attributable to your good self. Going all the way back to the 1990s.

Personally I'm going to go with Helen Custer. AlistairMcMillan 23:18, 13 March 2007 (UTC)

I'll go with Sean Daily in Windows IT Pro: Windows NT 101 chapter in Optimizing Windows NT:

Installable file systems
Another portability feature of NT is its ability to support many different file systems. Currently, NT supports the FAT (File Allocation Table used in DOS, Windows 95, and OS/2 systems), NTFS (Native Transactional File System introduced with Windows NT), and CDFS (CD-ROM File System). However, because of NT’s modular nature, support for additional file systems can be easily added in the future by simply creating new file system drivers and adding them to NT. This makes it relatively easy for NT to incorporate new technologies. Discpad 23:38, 13 March 2007 (UTC)

That all very nice. You do know who Helen Custer is right? The woman that wrote two books called "Inside Windows NT" and "Inside the Windows NT File System". Who was asked to write them by David Cutler. Who wrote them at Microsoft, alongside the people who were creating Windows NT, as they were creating Windows NT. "Inside Windows NT" being the book that has a foreword by David Cutler. I'm assuming I don't have to tell you who Cutler is right? AlistairMcMillan 23:35, 13 March 2007 (UTC)
Yes, I know who Helen Custer is. And Yes, I knew of Dave Cutler when he was still a DIGIT.

Lustra AF[edit]

A tag has been placed on Lustra AF, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article seems to be blatant advertising which only promotes a company, product, group or service and which would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become an encyclopedia article. Please read the general criteria for speedy deletion, particularly item 11, as well as the guidelines on spam.

If you can indicate why the subject of this article is not blatant advertising, you may contest the tagging. To do this, please add {{hangon}} on the top of the page and leave a note on the article's talk page explaining your position. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would help make it encyclopedic, as well as adding any citations from reliable sources to ensure that the article will be verifiable. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. --Finngall talk 15:44, 10 May 2007 (UTC)

Information.svg Please do not add inappropriate external links to Wikipedia, as you did to Hydroquinone.

Inappropriate links include (but are not limited to) links to personal web sites, links to web sites with which you are affiliated, and links that attract visitors to a web site or promote a product. See the external links guideline and spam policy for further explanations. Since Wikipedia uses nofollow tags, external links do not alter search engine rankings.

Considering that it was a month ago, I don't recall precisely. But judging by what was left behind in the edit summary in the deletion log, the article likely looked more promotional than encyclopedic. It should be noted that I'm not an admin and cannot delete articles myself; an admin had to come along to either delete the article or remove the tag as warranted. In this case, the admin not only agreed that it was eligible for speedy deletion under criterion G11 (spam) but also under A7 (no assertion of why the subject is notable enough to merit an article here). Since the article appears to have been only one sentence long before going to the references section, one could make the argument that it fell under A1 (little or no context) as well. I make no claims of infallibility, and tagging it as spam may or may not have been an error, but given that it was probably eligible for speedy deletion anyway, please forgive me if I don't feel too guilty about it.

I haven't looked at the other articles you've referenced, but comparing one article to another is a tricky business around here due to the nature of Wikipedia. Since anyone can create or edit an article, and since not all articles get the attention they deserve, using the existence or quality of article X to justify the existence of article Y is not always a strong argument. It's better to ensure that it stands well purely on it's own merits.

Now if you still wish to create an article on this product, my suggestion would be to work on it away from the main article space (either offline or by creating a subpage of your user page to use as a private workspace). When you're done, contact an administrator to request that the original page be unprotected and replaced with the new version of the article. I can't guarantee the results, but if the article is a good one, I think they'll look favorably upon it. If you need further help, I'll be happy to provide it.

I hope all of this helps. Thanks, and take care. --Finngall talk 16:15, 8 June 2007 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Bellows factor[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on Bellows factor 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 blatant 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.

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 include on the external site the statement "I, (name), am the author of this article, (article name), and I release its content under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License, Version 1.2 and later." You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the article (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the article's talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Dicklyon 05:21, 13 November 2007 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of TL Forsberg[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article TL Forsberg has been proposed for deletion because under Wikipedia policy, all biographies of living persons created after March 18, 2010, must have at least one source that directly supports material in the article.

If you created the article, please don't take offense. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Wikipedia:Referencing for beginners or ask at Wikipedia: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. wintonian talk edits 13:12, 31 May 2011 (UTC)

IMDB is a verified source.

File permission problem with File:TL Forsberg1.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:TL Forsberg1.jpg. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file agreed to license it under the given license.

If you created this media entirely yourself but have previously published it elsewhere (especially online), please either

  • make a note permitting reuse under the CC-BY-SA or another acceptable free license (see this list) at the site of the original publication; or
  • Send an email from an address associated with the original publication to permissions-en@wikimedia.org, stating your ownership of the material and your intention to publish it under a free license. You can find a sample permission letter here. If you take this step, add {{OTRS pending}} to the file description page to prevent premature deletion.

If you did not create it entirely yourself, please ask the person who created the file to take one of the two steps listed above, or if the owner of the file has already given their permission to you via email, please forward that email to permissions-en@wikimedia.org.

If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:File copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:File copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have provided evidence that their copyright owners have agreed to license their works under the tags you supplied, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Files lacking evidence of permission may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. You may wish to read the Wikipedia's image use policy.

Speedy deletion nomination of File:See What I'm Saying1.jpg[edit]

A tag has been placed on File:See What I'm Saying1.jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F9 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the image appears to be a blatant copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted images or text borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, contest the deletion by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion," which appears inside of the speedy deletion ({{db-...}}) tag (if no such tag exists, the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate). Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Copyright problems[edit]

Hi Discpad. I've noticed you've uploaded a few photographs recently that you've claimed as your own work. I have to warn you that Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously, and you will be expected to prove these are your own work. Numerous users have been blocked from editing Wikipedia in the past for violating these requirements, so please do be careful. I actually run an Adoption school which discusses copyright, for beginners and more advanced.

For example, I have strong doubts that you are the creator of the official poster of See what I'm saying and if you're not you wouldn't have the right to release it under CC-BY-SA (a licence which even means other people can sell it!)

However, you would be able to upload the same picture under fair use, as it fits the required criteria for the See what I'm saying page only. Again, have a read of my adoption school pages for a more thorough explanation. You've done some great work with the articles you've created so far, but I'm worried about you falling foul of copyright. WormTT · (talk) 08:37, 9 June 2011 (UTC)

Permission sent via email from Dan@Snip.Net to permissions-en@wikimedia.org Ticket #2011060910001816
Fair enough then. If you are indeed the owner of the images, I apologise for my comments, I will await the response from the tickets. WormTT · (talk) 15:01, 9 June 2011 (UTC)
@WormTT: Please see copyright statement posted on the Ticket #2011060910001816 -- See What I'm Saying and Wikipedia. for copyright release.
Unfortunately, I am unable to see the tickets, but I'm sure confirmation will come through soon. WormTT · (talk) 19:26, 10 June 2011 (UTC)
Looks good to me, well done. When I get back next week I'll have a look and see if there's anything else we can add to the article. WormTT · (talk) 19:36, 10 June 2011 (UTC)

Robel[edit]

I'm sorry, you just... didn't assert any notability about her at all. The article was up for a month, you kept adding to it and adding to it, and at no point did you add content that would get the article kept.

Sorry. DS (talk) 17:45, 23 July 2011 (UTC)

Okay, first: if you have a message for me, leave it on my talk page, not my userpage. Second: my username is not a 'fraud', I know you were being silly but that's not a nice thing to say. Third: I was not under any obligation to 'flag' the page for deletion. I am an administrator. I can delete pages myself. And I do. I delete lots of pages. The only limit is that I have to be able to justify my actions to the other administrators, because any other administrator can restore a page. If you insist, that page can be restored, but if it is restored and you do not properly show notability, it will go through a full formal deletion debate -- and those can be quite embarrassing. Based solely on the information you included in the article, Ms Rodel does not yet meet our criteria for inclusion (although she may, someday -- or perhaps you simply did not include the important information). I am confident that other administrators will agree with me. DS (talk) 05:44, 24 July 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Georgia Tech Freshman Experience[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 Georgia Tech Freshman Experience, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G4 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be a repost of material that was previously deleted following a deletion debate, such as at articles for deletion. Under the specified criteria, where an article has substantially identical content to that of an article deleted after debate, and any changes in the content do not address the reasons for which the material was previously deleted, it may be deleted at any time.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, contest the deletion by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion," which appears inside of the speedy deletion ({{db-...}}) tag (if no such tag exists, the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate). Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. Gurt Posh (talk) 20:29, 23 July 2011 (UTC)
