Global account[edit]

Hi Dystopos! As a Steward I'm involved in the upcoming unification of all accounts organized by the Wikimedia Foundation (see m:Single User Login finalisation announcement). By looking at your account, I realized that you don't have a global account yet. In order to secure your name, I recommend you to create such account on your own by submitting your password on Special:MergeAccount and unifying your local accounts. If you have any problems with doing that or further questions, please don't hesitate to contact me on my talk page. Cheers, —DerHexer (Talk) 12:37, 18 January 2015 (UTC)

Hello. Just created Henry F. DeBardeleben. Could you please provide a reference to prove that he was buried at Oak Hill Cemetery (Birmingham, Alabama)? Btw, very interested in writing more articles about the Birmingham area here. Please reply on my talkpage. Thank you.Zigzig20s (talk) 09:02, 15 July 2015 (UTC)

Thanks. Feel free to transfer his picture to Wikimedia Commons if copyright permits. Are you interested in helping me improve the Drummond Company btw?Zigzig20s (talk) 12:52, 15 July 2015 (UTC)
Would you consider moving this picture to Wikimedia Commons please? I would like to add more info about Drummond as I said; both the family and the company. Also the Stephenses and Mountain Brook.Zigzig20s (talk) 18:21, 16 July 2015 (UTC)
That photo was contributed and is published on Bhamwiki by permission. The creator didn't want to relinquish the rights necessary to put it on Wikimedia commons. --Dystopos (talk) 18:57, 16 July 2015 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Nadcap[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 Nadcap requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article or image appears to be a clear copyright infringement. This article or image appears to be a direct copy from http://www.calumetelectronics.com/Capabilities/Certs. 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 or image belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text or image — 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 or image 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 this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, 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 from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Bazj (talk) 16:11, 21 July 2015 (UTC)

Wallace S. McElwain[edit]

Hello. Would you mind sharing some references (articles, books, etc.) about this person please? You have an article on the Birmingham Wiki, but no references. Thanks.Zigzig20s (talk) 15:40, 9 September 2015 (UTC)

  • I don't have a long list of authoritative references, but the ones that I used are linked right there in the "References" and "External links" sections of the article. I could try to find some better ones if you're having difficulty. Bhamwiki:Wallace McElwain --Dystopos (talk) 16:35, 9 September 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page. For the Election committee, MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 12:51, 23 November 2015 (UTC)

Marconi and trivia[edit]

Reverted this edit. List are not intended to include every mere mention of a subject that an editor can find (see WP:TRIVIA and MOS:POPCULT). Problem has been noted for quite a while and there is ongoing talk. Please bring up comments there. Fountains of Bryn Mawr (talk) 14:03, 11 April 2017 (UTC)

  • It's not trivia. It is not what is discussed in WP:Trivia. It's a relevant entry among the honors given to Marconi. It's verifiable under the guidelines even for having its own article. But, you win. Wikipedia is your kingdom. And this is why I stopped being active here. --Dystopos (talk) 14:11, 11 April 2017 (UTC)

Kay Tipton[edit]

Regarding Draft:Kay_Tipton, I have been trying to gain approval for inclusion, but meeting pushback ("heroic teachers aren't notable" - unhelpful... who decides?). Biographical data, actionable suggestions, or weighing in on notability would help. The ongoing notability debate is happening at User_talk:Kostas20142#13:51:27.2C_9_October_2017_review_of_submission_by_Pacingpoet. Thank you in advance, Pacingpoet (talk) 20:14, 10 October 2017 (UTC)
