July 2009

So you know that handy auto-dividing column template I found?

Turns out it only works in Firefox and Safari — see Help:Columns and Help talk:Columns. Doesn't really fuss me any, because I figure you deserve what you get if you're using IE on a PC anyway. But probably not the best in terms of an experience for our users. Grr...! Mlaffs (talk) 13:49, 1 July 2009 (UTC)

Frak. And I updated the WP:WPRS members list to use it, too. - Dravecky (talk) 15:50, 1 July 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, that's what twigged me to the problem yesterday — I saw that edit while I was at work. I think I'll leave it alone on the missing stations page, though; if we're going to leave that in my userspace and it works for you and me, that's really all that matters. Mlaffs (talk) 16:08, 1 July 2009 (UTC)

Why removal of skyramp entry in table ways to improve spaceflight propulsion?

I recently created an entry for inclined rocket or jet sleds (skyramps) as a means of greatly decreasing the cost to orbit. I spent some time and effort to figure out how to place the skyramp entry in the table. However, the edit seems to have been removed as 'spam'. Is this not vandalism of my work? - RichardWayneSmith (talk) 08:28, 2 July 2009 (UTC)

The 'apparent spam link' I removed was to the "Skyramp" website which you had added to a number of articles in what appears to be an effort to promote this one website. Are you connected in any way to this "Skyramp" website? Please read Wikipedia's policy on valid external links. - Dravecky (talk) 08:36, 2 July 2009 (UTC)

WFOR AM

Some little research indicates it might be Mississippi's oldest radio station. I need verification, and if so, it's gotta have a pretty big history to boot. Raymie Humbert (local radar | current conditions) 22:12, 19 June 2009 (UTC)

Lots of info on WFOR (AM), including some great stuff on Jimmy Swan. I've gotten started on the article and will do more over the next day or so. (I'm storing a few URLs here temporarily while I move from one PC to another.) - Dravecky (talk) 03:43, 20 June 2009 (UTC)

KBNG

I love it when your articles replacing dab pages hit my watchlist — makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside, plus one more page I can stop watching!

Two things just popped into my head when I saw this article, that I've learned in recent weeks. Thought I'd share in case they're helpful to you at all.

First of all, apparently it's advised to leave two blank lines between the categories and the stub template. Don't quite understand why that is, but it's part of the instructions on the page describing stubs and how they work.

Second, don't know if you'd ever seen {{Official}} before. Kind of handy — as I've gone through to fill in missing FCC/Radio Locator/Arbitron stuff, I've been using it where I've also found that the website was missing in the external links. Saves a keystroke or two. Mlaffs (talk) 19:52, 3 July 2009 (UTC)

KSSM

Long shot, but just in case you're nutty like me and keep notes on stuff you want to get back to — you tagged this article as the recipient of a merge back in December, but the article you marked in the incoming parameter was the same article. Any chance you remember what the actual incoming source was supposed to be? Mlaffs (talk) 02:40, 5 July 2009 (UTC)

My notes aren't that detailed but, luckily for me, I added the merge-to and (errant) merge-from tags in succession. A quick rummage through my contributions revealed that KOOV was the intended article. I've updated the tag and given the KSSM article a light dusting. - Dravecky (talk) 07:40, 5 July 2009 (UTC)

KBUX

Hey Dravecky, if you have some free time, there is an article that needs a little attention. I came across the KBUX article while checking pages for radio schedules (which seem to be creeping back) and it had ALOT of information on there that was more about the town it serves and not the station, so I deleted it. You will, of course, be able to see what I deleted in history. So, if you have some free time, could you give the article a once over and see what information you can add. I would appreciate it. Take Care and Happy 4th...NeutralHomerTalk • 02:56, 5 July 2009 (UTC)

This seems to have gotten buried on your talk page. Not sure if you seen it with the other posts on the page. Just bringing it to your attention :) - NeutralHomerTalk • 06:49, 8 July 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, sorry, been a bit distracted. I'll take a look at it in a bit. - Dravecky (talk) 06:50, 8 July 2009 (UTC)
No rush. Just figured you hadn't seen it with the other messages. No rush in getting to it. :) Thanks...NeutralHomerTalk • 06:55, 8 July 2009 (UTC)

Hitz Radio AFD

Hello, I'm just wondering if you would like to look at my reply to your AFD vote. As I have stated, you may wish to reconsider as to whether media coverage was sustained, as it basically consisted of one award within a sort of "Local Heroes" set of which no other winners warranted an article. Esteffect (talk) 20:37, 5 July 2009 (UTC)

DYK summons

The prep areas are ready to go. Shubinator (talk) 00:02, 6 July 2009 (UTC)

And now they're promoted and cleared. Enjoy! - Dravecky (talk) 00:12, 6 July 2009 (UTC)
Thanks! Shubinator (talk) 00:12, 6 July 2009 (UTC)

KARP-FM

Nice updates to KARP-FM thanks!--RadioFan (talk) 00:12, 6 July 2009 (UTC)

Sure thing. One note: the date the first call sign is assigned is almost never the date the station "went on air" so if you could update your script to say "was assigned the call sign" or somesuch instead, that would be great. - Dravecky (talk) 00:14, 6 July 2009 (UTC)
I noticed that change you've made in a couple of my recent additions. I've updated the script with that language. Good catch.--RadioFan (talk) 00:29, 6 July 2009 (UTC)

DYK Question

Even though it has been awhile since I have done the updating, would it be possible to get a DYK for Stephens City, Virginia? I did update the page by a good 2 or 3 times its previous, but that was about a year ago. Would that still be eligible or would I need to update more before it would be? - NeutralHomerTalk • 06:28, 10 July 2009 (UTC)

DYK is for Wikipedia's newest articles. To be eligible for DYK, it either has to be a new article created in the last 5 days (although there's a tiny amount of wiggle room for exceptional articles) or an existing article which had has its prose content expanded fivefold in the last 5 days. The article in question was last significantly expanded about 20 months ago and most of the text for the expansion was apparently from public domain sources, not new original content. - Dravecky (talk) 06:45, 10 July 2009 (UTC)
Darn :( Oh well, it was worth a shot, cause there is a neat piece of trivia in there that 3 people from Stephens City were in WWII, the Korean War and Vietnam. Which, in itself, is pretty neat. That comes from the US Census from 2000. Thanks for the information though :) - NeutralHomerTalk • 08:18, 10 July 2009 (UTC)

DYK for KATR-FM

Updated DYK query On July 10, 2009, Did you know? was updated with a fact from the article KATR-FM, which you created or substantially expanded. You are welcome to check how many hits your article got while on the front page (here's how) and add it to DYKSTATS if it got over 5,000. If you know of another interesting fact from a recently created article, then please suggest it on the Did you know? talk page.

Pulse detonation engine

hello. the entry i added wasn't exactly science fiction but the same applies to one or two others and anyway they're all simply fiction, more or less. so to put it in a nutshell, I will be changing the heading "In science fiction" to "Popular culture" and including the deleted entry. The "In" is redundant anyway. If you feel like undoing it, kindly state a valid reason and do so! :D Krishvanth (talk) 05:45, 16 July 2009 (UTC)

already listed in item 4! how foolish of me. thank you! Krishvanth (talk) 11:32, 16 July 2009 (UTC)

KVOB

Seen the page pop up on my watchlist, gave it a once over, nice job. Out of curiosity, I searched for KVOB's owner, Rocking M Radio...found their site and this neat little page. Click on each of the logos and it gives you a station page with all the information about that station...and even better, a logo. That will help as you update the pages.

BBC News (8:00pm Summary)

An anon user is creating a page for the BBC News (8:00pm Summary) with virtually no content, just an infobox. I have reverted the page several times to the redirect to BBC News, only to have the page changed back. I even resorted to issuing a Warn1 Warning for vandalism after the fourth revert. Would it be possible to protect the page? - NeutralHomerTalk • 05:14, 19 July 2009 (UTC)

Taken care of by another user. Take Care...NeutralHomerTalk • 05:32, 19 July 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, I went to lock it down as a redirect and found it being done while I was still typing. - Dravecky (talk) 05:43, 19 July 2009 (UTC)
Thanks Dude, appreciate the double response :) I think there was a page like it previously, but it was moved from mainspace to userspace, hence the redirect. I am not sure why the anon wasn't wanting to discuss it on the talk. Oh well, as long as the page is locked down that is all that matters :) - NeutralHomerTalk • 05:48, 19 July 2009 (UTC)

Just need opinion

Someone changed KERO-TV to just KERO. According to the FCC, it should be KERO-TV. I feel that the person who moved KERO-TV to KERO shouldn't have moved it. He moved some other stations that seem vandalizing to me, if you want to look into more on what he did. Just wanted to see if you felt KERO should be moved back to KERO-TV.--JoeCool950 (talk) 21:14, 20 July 2009 (UTC)

I've fixed the moves, updated the new template, and left a note on his talk page. - Dravecky (talk) 21:39, 20 July 2009 (UTC)

WKMX

In regard to your addition of the "callsign meaning" to the WKMX article, the source that you are referring to is incorrect. Those call letters were assigned, they were not chosen... i.e., they did not represent the word "Mix" when the station was put on the air back in the mid-70s. --74.95.135.46 (talk) 00:23, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

Please STOP attempting to add the "callsign meaning" to this article. The source that you continue to use is WRONG. Go to my talk page and you will see why I can definitively tell you this, please. --74.95.135.46 (talk) 15:25, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

KBZQ

Okay, I've finally created my first radio station article. Well, it was script-created, but I've learned enough to fill in some of the gaps that are left by the script. Nowhere near as fulsome as your work, naturally, but I figure that a stub with an infobox is better than a redlink, right? Mlaffs (talk) 18:00, 25 July 2009 (UTC)

Three done (I'm focusing on the ones that'll get rid of dab pages), and more respect for the work you put into these suckers with each one… Mlaffs (talk) 22:38, 25 July 2009 (UTC)

KBZQ looks pretty good, although I'll confess to a little standard tweaking. - Dravecky (talk) 04:25, 26 July 2009 (UTC)
Hey, tweak to your heart's content; that's the wiki way. I've noted some of those changes, and I'll apply them against the others that I've done and any others going forward. I'm also going to be providing some feedback to the script-creator about things I noticed, so I'll work these in too. Mlaffs (talk) 04:48, 26 July 2009 (UTC)
That's why I use a template instead of a script. It's easier, for me, to get things right when I'm not relying on a machine to figure out something written by a person. - Dravecky (talk) 05:09, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

Full service (radio format)‎

Thanks for making some changes to my little creation of a page. I really didn't have much information when I created it and hope people will be able to add to it. So, if you have more information, please feel free to add. Take Care...NeutralHomerTalk • 19:13, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

It would be nice if you used the talk page rather than blindly reverting. As an admin, I would think you would know better, guess not. --Jone allen (talk) 20:28, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

This is why you are suppose to use an edit summary. We are not going to check every talk page for every content dispute, so provide a summary telling us that it is per consensus at the discussion page. ZooFari 20:31, 29 July 2009 (UTC)
For the record, I did not blindly revert, I did use edit summaries ("rv per consensus, see talk page" and "per consensus and repeated discussion"), and this issue was settled on the talk page six months ago. There's a lengthy discussion there which I know Jone allen is aware of because they have contributed to that thread, albeit six months after everybody else had moved on. - Dravecky (talk) 20:36, 29 July 2009 (UTC)
Hmm, Jone's concern here is that you didn't use the talk page when you reverted an edit? I must have misunderstood. ZooFari 20:43, 29 July 2009 (UTC)
UPDATE: Charmingly, Jone allen just blindly reverted four of my recent edits to radio station articles. Given that these reversions re-introduced typographical and other errors, were made without edit summaries, and were from the top of my contributions list, I can only conclude that this was a deliberate act of vandalism aimed at me. Other reasonable explanations will be entertained before further action is taken. - Dravecky (talk) 20:44, 29 July 2009 (UTC)
I noticed that, too, and left her a note. --Smashvilletalk 20:48, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

WTVY-FM

Hello. Take a look at the station's website again. The logo used in the masthead section does not have "and the Legends." The image in the major promo section for the "Online Outlaws" does use the "Legends" logo, but the image in the masthead is newer. --74.95.135.46 (talk) 00:34, 30 July 2009 (UTC)

I replaced the logo with a newer version. It is essentially the same logo just horizontal with "Today's Best Country" instead of "Today's Best Country & The Legends". If you want to readd the older logo (with "The Legends"), please feel free. - NeutralHomerTalk • 00:46, 30 July 2009 (UTC)
