Monterey County Jail

Hi Doncram. I just came across the dab page Monterey County Jail which has me scratching my head. Are these really different locations? I can only see one. France3470 (talk) 22:18, 17 November 2011 (UTC)

I'll look into it. The dab page reflects my working from a database. There may have been 2 notable locations, or it may reflect 2 NRHP data entries about the same location (in which case just one article should be created and the dab page should go. --doncram 22:29, 17 November 2011 (UTC)
Okay, let me know what you discover. Thanks, France3470 (talk) 22:37, 17 November 2011 (UTC)
Resolved, I think, by my starting stub article for one NRHP-listed building. Noted by France3470's edit at the talk page. Further discussion, if needed, at Talk:Monterey County Jail. Thanks. --doncram 16:08, 18 November 2011 (UTC)

Sauganash Historic District Talk

Hello,

Over a year ago you "talked" to me and requested some pictures of houses in the Sauganash Historic District. I am so sorry I didn't get back to you earlier, but this is the first time I've logged into Wikipedia for over a year. Yes, I am a member of the Sauganash Community Association Board of Directors. As an association, we did not post any pictures on Flickr. That must have been someone else. I will talk to the rest of the Board to see if I can get any pictures to include on our Wikipedia page. I don't see it being an issue.

Regards. Fleepkay (talk) 01:04, 21 November 2011 (UTC)

Residencia Armstrong-Poventud

Thanks for noticing. I actually wanted to take a second look at that and a couple of other articles to ensure everything had been synced right, but you beat me to it. take care, Mercy11 (talk) 02:56, 23 November 2011 (UTC)

DYK nomination of Dr. Franklin E. Kameny House

Symbol question.svg Hello! Your submission of Dr. Franklin E. Kameny House at the Did You Know nominations page has been reviewed, and there still are some issues that may need to be clarified. Please review the comment(s) underneath your nomination's entry and respond there as soon as possible. Thank you for contributing to Did You Know! SarekOfVulcan (talk) 03:09, 23 November 2011 (UTC)

You're quite right about the length -- my apologies. Review struck. --SarekOfVulcan (talk) 19:04, 23 November 2011 (UTC)

Wickham Road Historic District

Actually, the edit comment on Wickham Road Historic District clearly explains that the district is from a single year. Districts are collections that can and do span multiple years. This district contains at least 5 major buildings and an unknown number of smaller buildings. So listing it in one year is simply not correct. Yes, the circa dates are provided. If those really are deemed important enough to categorize, they should be included on redirects for the actual buildings. That allows the buildings to correctly appear in the appropriate year based categories. Listing a district in 5 years, solely to show the completion dates of a few buildings is not correct.

Move warring at Girls' Domestic Science and Arts Building

Please see the result of WP:AN3#User:SarekOfVulcan reported by User:SarekOfVulcan (Result: Move protected). I haven't checked to see if you are under any current restriction, but it does not look good for either you or Sarek to be involved in another edit war. If you have concerns about the correct title for this article, I'm sure you can explain the case for your views on the article talk page. Thank you, EdJohnston (talk) 02:20, 26 November 2011 (UTC)

So I was looking over your recent edit history

Masonic Temple Des Moines.jpg

and (1) was pleased to spot a couple of "my" articles there, but (2) also bumping along through some of the others discovered this one Masonic Temple of Des Moines. It is classified at Beaux-Arts and I'm thinking, "No, not really." More like some Georgian or some sort of Renaissance Revival. Something, but not Beaux-Arts. A quick look by you, a thumbs up and down on Beaux-Arts and I'll change it or be on my way. Einar aka Carptrash (talk) 02:42, 28 November 2011 (UTC)

Hi. I dunno, looks like could be Beaux-Arts to me. :) I justed looked for info in the MPS document for the architectural firm, but find nothing about this building in that, unfortunately. --doncram 03:00, 28 November 2011 (UTC)

Deletion discussion about Shopbell & Company

Hello, Doncram, and thanks for contributing to Wikipedia!

I wanted to let you know that some editors are discussing at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Shopbell & Company whether the article Shopbell & Company should be in Wikipedia. I encourage you to comment there if you think the article should be kept in the encyclopedia.

The deletion discussion doesn't mean you did something wrong. In fact, other editors may have useful suggestions on how you can continue editing and improving Shopbell & Company, which I encourage you to do. If you have any questions, feel free to ask at the Help Desk.

Thanks again for your contributions! SarekOfVulcan (talk) 06:55, 28 November 2011 (UTC)

Repost of Category:Late 19th and 20th Century Revivals architecture

A tag has been placed on Category:Late 19th and 20th Century Revivals architecture requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia, because it appears to be a repost of material that was previously deleted following a deletion process. If you can indicate how it is different from the previously posted material, contest the deletion by clicking on the button that looks like this: Speedy delete contest button.png 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 page's discussion 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. Administrators will consider your reasoning before deciding what to do with the page. If you believe the original discussion was unjustified, please contact the administrator who deleted the page or use deletion review instead recreating the page. Thank you.

I will remove the speedy deletion tags for reposting material that was deleted in previous discussions. You obviously have additional information that wasn't available or brought up by anyone else, and your objection should be taken to a new CFD for a discussion with a broader audience. Thanks. --Starcheerspeaksnewslostwars (talk) 22:24, 28 November 2011 (UTC)

Tulsa

Did you realize you were welcoming an editor who hadn't made an edit in 4.5 years? :-) --SarekOfVulcan (talk) 19:14, 8 December 2011 (UTC)

Um, no, i saw what I really believed was a current post on another editor's talk page or somewhere, expressing frustration again that yet again when he tries to post photos and text, that he encounters the same kind of impenetrable bureaucracy as before. I think i really did see it, and that it has been revision-deleted since then. Some of what i saw was in the talk page of a photo that has just been deleted, i think. And/or the comment i saw was too strong at a person's talk page who has now chosen to delete the comment. I can't tell. --doncram 00:02, 9 December 2011 (UTC)
Sorry to butt in, but you're right. I happened to notice the same exchange on Ronhjones' talkpage because of the very catchy header "Thanks to all at wikipedia for making this process a living hell". The writer was using an IP address so maybe it's someone else from the same org, or maybe they forgot their password, who knows. So they may or may not see your message but it can't hurt. Station1 (talk) 05:50, 9 December 2011 (UTC)
Ah, I missed that -- I didn't realize that they had continued to edit, but without logging in. Sorry for the confusion. --SarekOfVulcan (talk) 06:38, 9 December 2011 (UTC)
Thanks, yes, that header at Ronhjones was what caught my eye. --doncram 16:24, 9 December 2011 (UTC)

Nomination of David S. Castle for deletion

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article David S. Castle is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/David S. Castle until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on good quality evidence, and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion template from the top of the article. SarekOfVulcan (talk) 04:56, 11 December 2011 (UTC)

Kept (withdrawn by Sarek) as the topic was obviously notable and should not have been AFD nommed. --doncram 17:05, 11 December 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Frederick Ernst Ruffini

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 Frederick Ernst Ruffini 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 person or group of people, but it does not 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 see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

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". 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 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. SarekOfVulcan (talk) 05:48, 11 December 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion removed by another editor as the topic was obviously notable and should not have been speedy nommed. --doncram 17:05, 11 December 2011 (UTC)

Your contributed article, M.E. Bell

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.

Hello, I notice that you recently created a new page, M.E. Bell. First, thank you for your contribution; Wikipedia relies solely on the efforts of volunteers such as yourself. Unfortunately, the page you created covers a topic on which we already have a page - Mifflin E. Bell. Because of the duplication, your article has been tagged for speedy deletion. Please note that this is not a comment on you personally and we hope you will continue helping to improve Wikipedia. If the topic of the article you created is one that interests you, then perhaps you would like to help out at Mifflin E. Bell - you might like to discuss new information at the article's talk page.

If you think that the article you created should remain separate, contest the deletion by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". 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 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. Additionally if you would like to have someone review articles you create before they go live so they are not nominated for deletion shortly after you post them, allow me to suggest the article creation process and using our search feature to find related information we already have in the encyclopedia. Try not to be discouraged. Wikipedia looks forward to your future contributions. SarekOfVulcan (talk) 17:27, 19 December 2011 (UTC)

Fuck you Sarek. --doncram 17:58, 19 December 2011 (UTC)
Doncram, I don't know what truck you have with Sarek, if any (I only ended up here because this diff came across my IRC feed due to your using "fuck" in an edit summary), but this is not the way to do things. I would very strongly suggest that you strike this comment and not continue making more along the same lines. Telling other users "fuck you" is both uncivil and disruptive. A fluffernutter is a sandwich! (talk) 18:07, 19 December 2011 (UTC)
Feel free to discuss at Wikipedia:Deletion review/Log/2011 December 19 section on M.E. Bell. --doncram 18:14, 19 December 2011 (UTC)
DRV is for the issue in dispute, not your behaviour. Fluffernutter's note was about the latter. --KFP (contact - edits) 18:30, 19 December 2011 (UTC)

A lot of guys wouldn't use the edit summary, "Fuck you Sarek", after they got off a three-month block for incivility. You seem to have problems with learning from the past. --Elkman (Elkspeak) 20:12, 19 December 2011 (UTC)
