I am the creator of the Kenneth Chiacchia page. I am creating a series on Pittsburgh Writers of a particular genre which have achieved notoreity by a minimum of 10-15 publications. the style is well-documented. Some of the new articles will be stubs. Botendaddy (talk) 05:55, 16 September 2008 (UTC)
Could you please explain this edit?
I avoided the use of ref tags because the article is a composite from three different sources, so it would be an herculean task to reference which source states which fact. Therefore, I choose the "shotgun" referencing style of referencing "in toto". CU!. Randroide (talk) 09:06, 16 September 2008 (UTC)
- No prob. Does it automatically go out to all editors of that page? That would hit me for the notice I left on him

PLEASE DONT REMOVE MY GRACIE DIET ARTICLE
PLEASE LEAVE IT, IT IS ABOUT A VERY FAMOUS DIET
Deletion of Israela Oron
I'd like to contest the speedy deletion of Israela Oron. She is quite notable- she reached the highest rank a woman can reach in the Israel Defense Forces and served for 27 years, serves on several boards, etc. *myl2000* (talk) 17:57, 17 September 2008 (UTC)— &my12000* (talk • contribs) has made few or no other edits outside this topic.
Explain "clean up needed"
Thanks for your help. I updated it and think it looks good. I'm assuming someone else will remove the "needs cleanup" tag but let me know if I should do that (assuming it's all good now). Pocopoquito (talk) 21:54, 17 September 2008 (UTC)
non notability of "AssociazioneVolontari Italiani Sangue"
It seems you have tagged the article "AssociazioneVolontari Italiani Sangue" for speedy deletion on the grounds of non notability. The article clearly mentioned that the association brings together "over a million volunteers" and that it was a major non-lucrative organization in Italy. Do you think a million people is not notable? Bottom line: please don't be hasty in deleting what you don't know. Stefano (talk) 13:07, 19 September 2008 (UTC)
Northern Exposure Rescue Page
Please can you explain why you have elected to delete the Northern Exposure Rescue page?
The club is an extremely popular club invovled in many notable events on the River Thames in the United Kingdom. Please make arrangements to re-instate the page immediately.
It should be made clear to you that deleting pages in a rush that you don't think are important or notable is a recipe for disaster. Your opinon of what is important will differ dramtically from others. Tollerance is very important to Wikipedia.
I look forward to you re-instating the page as soon as possible.
Scientific jargon page
Thanks a lot for your message and link (math jargon)! Please do talk in the future, if time permits.
Math jargon is different from physics in many ways: (i) it is rather "educational" (learned and developed while teaching), (ii) has solid literature support, and is (iii) largerly lacking abbreviations and acronyms. (i) is the big problem with physical sciences - those terms I described are not taught in universities and physicists mostly don't bother describing them in separate articles. Having said that, I shall try to scrap references (dig out original papers where usually the term history is described, for the first and usually last time) and keep the page of blowing off (by knocking of medical and computer sciences). If those sciences will push too hard, we better rename "scientific" into more physics related. At the moment, right word doesn't come to me which covers physics related sciences (+materials +chemistry +nanotechnology, etc.; the problem is that most techniques there are used by wide range of sciences).
Regarding duplicating Wikipedia acronyms and abbreviations from other pages, the situation in my field is rather gloomy - for many terms I listed I had to write the main article, "redirect" or definition on wikipedia. In other words, I'm trying to look relevant wikipedia pages and fix them, thus joined the physics project ;-) hoping to help .. NIMSoffice (talk) 23:55, 21 September 2008 (UTC)
Legends In Concert
A few more notable and credible references have been added including a quote from the New York Daily News. Additionally, in an effort to further establish credibility and noteworthiness, an additional award with a credible reference link has been added. Thanks again for your feedback.Jaiesi (talk) 20:37, 24 September 2008 (UTC)
An unanticipated compliment
I didn't so much agree with what you said as with the way you said it at User talk:NIMSoffice#Scientific jargon -- not that I'm wanting to disagree. No. I'm just wanting to emphasize style over substance in this unique instance.
I'm really quite pleased with your approach to constructive criticism. I like it that you try to explain a problem and then you also refer to an article which can be used as a comparative standard. The tone of language is just right, finely balanced. I intend to come back to this posting again in the future; and I definitely plan to plagiarize the following sentences:
- "The original research and and unreferenced tags go hand-in-hand. There are some external links but no indication of where each particular fact in the is coming from."
On several occasions, I've tried to explain the same thing, but never with so few words. In such circumstances -- regrettably, my unsuccessful prose has inspired only cursory dismissal, rejection or perhaps WP:TL;DR.
Dallas Defenders Football
You asked that Dallas Defenders Football Team be taken out of Wikipedia. You stated it was a stretch to be called "semi pro". The NPSFL (National Public Safety Football League) falls under the AFA (American Football Association). There are teams from the NAFL which fall under AFA and they are listed in Wikipedia. What would your criteria be for actually being considered a "semi pro" team? I play in the NPSFL as a football player. I have played against Division I and Division II college players as well as a few ex NFL players in this league. This is far more competition that I have faced while playing in another "semi pro" league. I never got paid for playing in the other "semi pro" league, nor do I get paid in the NPSFL. I actually raise money for charity to play. If you are looking for websites for credibility then just go to NPSFL.com or americanfootballassn.com or Dallasdefendersfootball.org
Dallas Defenders have played an exhibition game last year and has begun their season with a win this past weekend. So the argument they haven't played a game yet is no longer acurate.
New Page Patrol survey
