I've left a response for you at Talk:Franciscus Henri. If you should need help with the cleanup or sourcing, let me know! Scholarly works are not the only valid secondary sources-for musicians, things such as critical reviews can certainly work for this as well. Seraphimblade 01:13, 31 January 2007 (UTC)

Ath to he[edit]

_ _ Well, where to start?
_ _ At the beginning, i guess: Of course i got the ref to "Ath..", but "... to he" goes over my head. Which is OK.
_ _ As to "typo" and your left-handed compliment, i'll do it again: careless navigation that results in putting something on the wrong page is neither technically a typo, nor as trivial an error as a typo. IMO, it is part of a working style that i won't call wrong, but in most people amounts to reckless laziness. That being said, nevertheless, it is for some people as impractical to escape from reckless laziness as it is for me to escape from being the sort of person who would respond to such a remark as yours with:

To paraphrase two stars of information provision, that's 'Mr.' Harmless Drudge to you!

_ _ Overall, i'd like to say that i was probably a little rough on you, and/but (even to whatever extent my negative comments were valid) i was not being ironic, let alone sarcastic, in saying that the article's retention or deletion isn't about your editing practices. It should be understood that i've yet to see any editor who was not a reasonable colleague here, if they had good intentions (which everything suggests you do) and at least a rudimentary understanding of English (not even necessarily with any substantial expressive capability). So everything beyond the minimum necessary to alert you, and those evaluating the bio, that the complications here are a little more than is typical, is my fault: due to my carelessness, misjudgment, or over-enthusiasm.
_ _ And i thank you in return.

Reply on Franciscus Henri[edit]

Looking much better! Note just a few problems remaining-a couple of the sources (such as 4) don't seem to mention him, perhaps the URL should be linked to a site subpage instead of the site's front page? However, the award nominations are a pretty clear indicator of notability, and one would imagine he generated some press when they were received. I don't really have time to look tonight but I'll see what I can find when I do.

Also, some minor stylistic stuff-an article subject's name should be bolded only the first time it appears in the article text (usually in the intro), not every time, and when referring to a person in a formal-tone article it is customary to refer to the person by a last name (in this case, "Henri" rather than "Franciscus"), although the subject's full name (first and last, with middle initial or name if the person customarily is referred to using the middle initial and/or name) should be used the first time the subject's name is used.

As an example: "Harry S. Truman was the thirty-third President of the United States. Truman succeeded to the office after the death of Franklin D. Roosevelt..."

In any case, well done on it! Will do some additional work to that one (and the other two brought up on the talk page) as time permits, and see what I can find for sourcing. I generally can dig a few up. Seraphimblade 06:51, 3 February 2007 (UTC)

Maintenance tags[edit]

I went ahead and removed them, it looks like they no longer apply. Aside from the dispute-type tags, like {{NPOV}} and the like, generally no type of "permission" is needed to remove them if you've made efforts to address the problems, though it never hurts to ask if you're unsure. Don't take maintenance tags as anything against you though! Their main purpose is to place articles into categories of ones that need some work, so that other editors can locate them and help out. They're not intended as an attack against the article or its editors at all, they're just a help to maintaining a project of Wikipedia's size and tremendous scope!

User Page[edit]

Sorry, could you tell me what was wrong with this? Electriceel [Talk] 10:13, 15 February 2007 (UTC)

At the time, the user page guideline contained the following addition (to which I linked):
Please do not put fake versions of the MediaWiki user interface elements such as a fake "you have new messages" box or fake category links on your user page or user talk page. Because these fake elements are difficult to distinguish from the actual MediaWiki interface, they undermine trust and carry the appearance of fraud. Fake MediaWiki UI elements may be removed without warning and should not be replaced once removed.
(It's also been noted that these messages confuse some bots, thereby causing them to cease functioning properly.)
The text in question subsequently was disputed and removed, and it has become the subject of significant debate:
Wikipedia:Village pump (proposals)#Practical jokes in "new message" boxes
Wikipedia:Avoid imitating MediaWiki user interface elements (proposed)
Wikipedia founder Jimbo Wales has stated that "the rule sounds a bit overbroad in current incarnation, but [he] would support something like this."
David Levy 16:01, 15 February 2007 (UTC)
Electriceel, I would be happy to revert your user page if you'd like (or I invite you to do so yourself). There is absolutely zero consensus for what User:David Levy did. I have already reverted quite a few pages about this and ordinarily I would just revert yours but I noticed that you were discussing this with him and I wanted to set the record straight and allow you to decide what you would like to do. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me about this. Thanks. (Netscott) 22:05, 15 February 2007 (UTC)
Thanks for getting back to me. It's all good... things have progessed quite a bit since I left this message and now there's a new addition to Wikipedia:User page guidelines. Take it easy. (Netscott) 00:59, 18 February 2007 (UTC)
Was that an automated response? I appreciate the concern with having the joke there, so I won't put it back up for now, but the passive-aggressiveness of that reply I found inhuman. Thanks. Electriceel [Talk] 00:59, 18 February 2007 (UTC)
Huh? You asked a question, and I responded with a detailed explanation. What was passive-aggressive or inhuman about that? —David Levy 01:05, 18 February 2007 (UTC)
The content wasn't passive-aggressive, it was detailed and thorough, but I wasn't addressed in anyway, nor were there any human conversational conventions employed. It felt like there should be a "this is an automated response, please don't reply" at the end.
But after all that, I was probably just knee jerking. I tend to answer things too hastily, and it's really nothing to argue about. Thanks Electriceel [Talk] 02:18, 18 February 2007 (UTC)
I answered your question to the best of my abilities. I wasn't trying to be rude, and I'm sorry if that's how my response came across. —David Levy 02:25, 18 February 2007 (UTC)

Little context in Franciscus Henri discography[edit]

Information icon.svg

Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on Franciscus Henri discography, by ZhongHan (talk · contribs), another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. The tag claims that it should be speedily deleted because Franciscus Henri discography is very short providing little or no context to the reader. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles.

To contest the tagging and request that administrators wait before possibly deleting Franciscus Henri discography, please affix the template {{hangon}} to the page, and put a note on its talk page. If the article has already been deleted, see the advice and instructions at WP:WMD. Feel free to leave a message on the bot operator's talk page if you have any questions about this or any problems with this bot, bearing in mind that this bot is only informing you of the nomination for speedy deletion; it does not perform any nominations or deletions itself. --Android Mouse Bot 2 06:10, 8 July 2007 (UTC)

Category:Psuedoreligionist Wikipedians[edit]

As you may already be aware, Category:Psuedoreligionist Wikipedians and its subcategories, Category:Discordian Wikipedians, Category:Flying Spaghetti Monsterist Wikipedians, Category:SubGenius Wikipedians, and others, have been deleted. That deletion is now up for review. If you have anything you'd like to say on the subject, now is the time. If you know of any other editors who might have something to say on the subject, pass the word. If, on the other hand, you are not interested in the slightest, feel free to delete this.   — Bigwyrm watch mewake me 11:03, 26 July 2007 (UTC)

Fake block[edit]

Yeah, it was some crazy editor just slapping a fake blocked template and a faked signature on a dozen or so pages. All fixed now, and, somewhat ironically, he's got a template of his own now. But his is real. Hurrah! The Rambling Man 09:10, 15 August 2007 (UTC)


Sorry! >_< I realized yesterday the problems of putting it there. I'll put stuff on the top from now on. XP SilverserenC 14:02, 22 August 2007 (UTC)

Michael Crafter[edit]

Yeah I don't know what to do about it. I know he's notable, I wasn't disputing that at all :) Perhaps though, he just be added to the relevant Wikipedia articles he has connection with? I don't know that his personal achievements are strong enough to support an article dedicated to him, that's why I proposed it for deletion. I don't know though, it seems like any ex-band member of such and such band gets added to Wikipedia and then instantly deleted, I wasn't sure why he's any exception, you know? I wondered why it was vandalized so often... he's not likeable or something?

What are your suggestions? --Rosario 05:44, 12 October 2007 (UTC)

Padawan Animator[edit]

There's this idea I have for a user box that'll say "This user is a padawan animator." I was thinking it could also have that Wikipedia symbol for animation at one side and "PA" in the other side. I was also thinking of having another one that says, "This user is a member of the Lightbox Order." Basically just a silly way of saying that traditional animation is a part of your life.

Hey, I wanted to talk to you about Animation Mentor, but it seems I'm not able to e-mail you like I am for some other Wikipedians. Anyways, check it out. I think you'll be interested, or at least maybe share my passion. Happy editing,--Padawan Animator (talk) 01:43, 23 January 2008 (UTC)

Hey, I started a WikiProject on Body Modification and I added your body modifications to the WikiProject, hope that is okay with you :). ScarTissueBloodBlister (talk) 23:38, 20 July 2009 (UTC)

WikiProject Theoretical Linguistics[edit]

Hello, I am trying to bring WP:WikiProject Theoretical Linguistics back to semi-active status. Toward that end, I have moved all members who have not posted to the project page in the past six months to a section, "Inactive members." If you wish to be active in the project, I hope you will move your name back to the section, "Members." You may also remove your name if you are no longer interested in the project. Thanks, and happy editing, Cnilep (talk) 17:47, 19 June 2010 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Merry Christmas (Franciscus Henri album)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Merry Christmas (Franciscus Henri album) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Doesn't meet WP:NALBUMS--it is just a track listing. That an album is an officially released recording by a notable musician or ensemble is not by itself reason for a standalone article.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.
