Welcome to Wikipedia![edit]

Hello Exir Kamalabadi/A1, welcome to Wikipedia!

Here are some tips:

If you feel a change is needed, feel free to make it yourself! Wikipedia is a wiki, so anyone (yourself included) can edit any article by following the Edit this page link. Wikipedia convention is to be bold and not be afraid of making mistakes. If you're not sure how editing works, have a look at How to edit a page, or try out the Sandbox to test your editing skills.

If, for some reason, you are unable to fix a problem yourself, feel free to ask someone else to do it. Wikipedia has a vibrant community of contributors who have a wide range of skills and specialties, and many of them would be glad to help. As well as the wiki community pages there are IRC Channels, where you are more than welcome to ask for assistance.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask me on my talk page. Thanks and happy editing, Alphax τεχ 6 July 2005 13:18 (UTC)

Welcome 2[edit]

Welcome! (We can't say that loud/big enough!)

Here are a few links you might find helpful:

If you have any questions or problems, no matter what they are, leave me a message on my talk page.

We're so glad you're here! -- Essjay · Talk 06:59, July 10, 2005 (UTC)

Welcoming Committee[edit]

I see you joined the WP:WC, and I see you added your name to the TOP of the list. Ah well not a big deal. Welcome to the committee. For an example of how to welcome someone also see User:Redwolf24/Welcome. Redwolf24 07:48, 10 July 2005 (UTC)

Also, there are a number of templates available, see Wikipedia:Standard_user_greeting. Welcome to the team! -- Essjay · Talk 08:02, July 10, 2005 (UTC)

Fine welcome. But lemme make it easier on you so you can add to clipboard (Ctrl+C) without viewing the source. Redwolf24 11:03, 10 July 2005 (UTC)

Just a side note: You can add it to pages by typing {{User:Exir Kamalabadi/Welcome}} . -- Essjay · Talk 11:08, July 10, 2005 (UTC)
<_< >_> Go to your welcome now and add to clipboard. :) That didn't take as long as it did to do on my welcome page but thats cause when I did it on mine it was my first time. Redwolf24 11:11, 10 July 2005 (UTC)
Thanks, Redwolf!Exir Kamalabadi(Talk)(contribs) 12:19, July 10, 2005 (UTC)
Hey Exir. Just checking up. Still welcoming people? Also, just wondering, what is your native language? Redwolf24 06:41, 13 July 2005 (UTC)
Yes, although I am having some hard time finding new users. My native language is Chinese, but I don't contribute to the Chinese Wikipedia. Exir Kamalabadi(Talk)(contribs)
Good signature there by the way. Anyways, I replied to you on my Talk page. Redwolf24 10:52, 13 July 2005 (UTC)
Here's a welcoming tip: Go to the recent changes page, and look for users (not IP address, though) that have red (talk) links beside thier names; if the link is red, they don't have any messages on thier talk page, so they haven't been welcomed yet, and chances are they haven't been here long. I did that yesterday and I'd guess I welcomed about 100 people during the day. -- Essjay · Talk 11:19, July 13, 2005 (UTC)


I have nominated Essjay for admin. Please support or at least comment. Redwolf24 13:07, 13 July 2005 (UTC)

Support!--Exir Kamalabadi(Talk)(contribs) 02:18, July 14, 2005 (UTC)

Hey Exir, I am a new Wikiman in Shanghai! Nice to have me you here!Pourfemme 02:38, 14 July 2005 (UTC)

SS Andrea Doria - Wreck image[edit]

I saw that you recently included an image of the wreck of Andrea Doria. Though I believe it is an excellent addition to the article, the questionable copyright on the image is raising some concerns, especially since I am thinking of nominating the article for FA. Can you confirm that the image is indeed fair use? Pentawing 05:40, 19 July 2005 (UTC)

Yes, it is ( I see this image is used in a lot of articles, so if it isn't in the Public Domain, it is Fair Use--Exir Kamalabadi | Contributions 06:12, July 19, 2005 (UTC)
In that case, can you give me some more information concerning the image so that the copyright tag can be modified accordingly? Thanks. Pentawing 21:02, 20 July 2005 (UTC)
Well, I saw it in a website about classic liners, and I also saw some identical (at least for me) images on other websites. The only thing I don't know is it's copyright status


The mop is mine!

Thanks for voting in my RfA; I promise I'll wield my sacred mop with care. If you ever need me for anything, you know where to find me. Thanks again! -- Essjay · Talk 15:20, July 20, 2005 (UTC)

No problem. It's nice to see you as an admin --Exir Kamalabadi | Contributions 03:23, July 21, 2005 (UTC)


Nice job on that image! He's deserved one for a while. Kudos, --Dvyost 13:12, 21 July 2005 (UTC)

Thank you. I thought that it's a pity there isn't any images of him, so I added one.--Exir Kamalabadi | Contributions 13:24, July 21, 2005 (UTC)

Tom Delonge[edit]

lease don't remove "copyedit" templates unless you're confident that you've done the required work. In this case, you left the article in a poor condition, with some very shaky English. --Mel Etitis (Μελ Ετητης) 16:31, 21 July 2005 (UTC)

Sorry. English isn't my native language--Exir Kamalabadi | Contributions 01:49, July 22, 2005 (UTC)

thanks for supporting me[edit]

Hello, just a quick note to express my gratitude for your support of my RfA. I'm sure I'll become a familiar face on places like the Administrator's Noticeboard and Requests for Adminship, as well as the murkier parts of my new job. "From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked." (Luke 12:48, NIV) Never was a truer word spoken. I feel empowered, yes, but not in the "oooh cool delete button!" way I was kind of expecting. Already I feel the weight of the responsibility I have now been entrusted with, a weight that will no doubt reduce given time. Thank you for believing in me. :) GarrettTalk 10:09, 22 July 2005 (UTC)

Thanks. I think you will be a great admin.--Exir Kamalabadi | Contributions 12:02, July 22, 2005 (UTC)

Admin Nomination[edit]

Alphax, are you already an admin? if you are not, will you mind if I nominate you for RfA?--Exir KamalabadiContribs 02:41, July 27, 2005 (UTC)

  • I'm not, but I'd like to wait until I have a few more contribs in the article namespace. You're not the first person to suggest it BTW. Thanks for asking though. Alphax τεχ 02:46, 27 July 2005 (UTC)
    • Well, tell me when you think you have enough edits. Nice welcoming message, BTW.--Exir KamalabadiContribs 02:51, July 27, 2005 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Hi, Exir. Thank you so much for your support and kind words in my RfA! I will not let you down. Thanks again. Redux 01:11, 29 July 2005 (UTC)

Have a nice time with the sacred mop, Redux!--Exir KamalabadiContribs 01:21, July 30, 2005 (UTC)

Canderson7's RFA[edit]

Thanks for supporting my RFA, I really appreciate it! --Canderson7 16:42, July 30, 2005 (UTC)


Thank you for your vote of support on my recent RfA. I was quite surprised by the amount of support I received, and wish to extend my thanks to you for taking the time to support my nomination for adminship. -- Longhair | Talk 11:59, 1 August 2005 (UTC)

It's nice to see you with the sacred mop--Exir KamalabadiContribs 02:36, August 2, 2005 (UTC)

Just to let you know[edit]

you're listed at User:Redwolf24/Friends. Go remove yourself if you see fit ;-) Redwolf24 22:43, 2 August 2005 (UTC)

Thanks, redwolf--Exir KamalabadiLeave me a note! 04:15, August 3, 2005 (UTC)

Honored to be on your list! -- Essjay · Talk 05:01, August 3, 2005 (UTC)

I'm honored to list you. You and Redwolf24 are my best wikifriends :)--Exir KamalabadiLeave me a note! 05:07, August 3, 2005 (UTC)

ps. Thanks for tidying my list

And you are on my list! Oh, and I wasn't the tidy-er, it was Red; I think he stalks us and watches for things to clean up! -- Essjay · Talk 05:38, August 3, 2005 (UTC)

Blocking spillover[edit]

Sorry. -- Cyrius| 06:12, 7 August 2005 (UTC)

It's okay. I wouldn't want someone to impersonate my best wikifriend, and I am actually impressed that you tracked down this imposter so quickly--Exir KamalabadiCriticism is welcomed! 06:28, August 7, 2005 (UTC)
Happened to be in the right place at the right time. The impostor voted in a rather strange manner on Wikipedia:Requests for adminship just before I loaded it up. -- Cyrius| 06:53, 7 August 2005 (UTC)
Yeah, that just gives it away--Exir KamalabadiCriticism is welcomed! 07:00, August 7, 2005 (UTC)

Thanks 2[edit]

Thanks so much for Your help!


I hope you find my welcoming message helpful. If you need me, you can find me at my talk page.--Exir KamalabadiCriticism is welcomed! 13:17, August 7, 2005 (UTC)


Highest priority for me in life is bettering myself. If you could tell me where have I been uncivil or have inclied in that direction, you will have done me a great favour. I am open to criticism, but if no one tells me my wrongs I can't fix it. --Cool Cat My Talk 11:23, 8 August 2005 (UTC)

I might have intepreted those summaries wrongly, so please don't get angry.--Exir KamalabadiCriticism is welcomed! 11:32, August 8, 2005 (UTC)


Thank you for supporting my RfA. I will do my best to serve the Wikipedia community as an administrator. Flcelloguy | A note? | Desk 20:29, 8 August 2005 (UTC)

It's nice to hear that you have the Sacred Mop!--Exir KamalabadiCriticism is welcomed! 03:25, August 9, 2005 (UTC)

Exceptional Newcomer Award[edit]

While I was pleased to have discovered such a kind token on my discussion page, I must inquire as to the details as to why it was placed there. More specifically, what was it that caught your eye? Semiconscious (talk · home) 05:34, 9 August 2005 (UTC)

Replyed on your talk page


Thanks for giving me the Pi Award. It is very kind of you to think of me, and I am honored. Warmest regards --Neutralitytalk 04:14, August 10, 2005 (UTC)

Thanks for your support[edit]

The mop is mine!

Thank you for voting to support my RFA. I've been promoted, and I promise to wield the mop with good faith, patience, and fairness... except when I'm exterminating vandals with the M-16 recoilless nuclear Gatling mop. --malathion talk 07:42, 10 August 2005 (UTC)

My RfA[edit]

On a similar theme, I just want to say thanks for the vote of support on my adminship nomination. It's gratifying to receive strong support from valued contributors - it increases my resolve to do things properly. Thanks very much once again, and hopefully I'll see you around the place. Cheers, Slac speak up! 22:29, 11 August 2005 (UTC)

Thanks for your support[edit]

Hi, I just wanted to thank you for supporting me in the recent adminship vote. I appreciate your vote of confidence and will do my very best to see to it that your support was not misplaced. Thanks again, and happy editing! -Loren 00:28, 18 August 2005 (UTC)

Fernando Rizo's RfA[edit]

I was promoted to administrator last night, Exir, thanks in part to your support. Hope you have a nice trip to the coast, and I'll see you around the Wiki. Fernando Rizo T/C 18:21, 20 August 2005 (UTC)


Hello, I'm trying to show some people off my friends list a new society, somewhat similar to WP:KC, Esperanza. Its still in its early stages but nonetheless I'd appreciate it were you to join. Redwolf24 (talk) 06:25, 28 August 2005 (UTC)

Ofcourse I'll join!--Exir KamalabadiFeel free to criticize me 08:56, August 28, 2005 (UTC)

Bmicomp's RfA[edit]

Well, my RfA has not quite completed yet, but either way, I'd like to thank you for your vote and your support, regardless of the outcome. -- BMIComp (talk, HOWS MY DRIVING) 18:35, 12 September 2005 (UTC)

The charter is here. (Relating to Esperanza)[edit]

Hello Exir Kamalabadi, the Charter for Esperanza is up. Take a looksie :) Redwolf24 (talk) 02:48, 19 September 2005 (UTC)

Esperanza made less bureaucratic[edit]

Hello again, I have (unilatterly) taken away the 'assembly' idea, as per my reasons at that edit summary and per Wikipedia talk:Esperanza/Charter. I have left the admin general, as some leadership is good. Now, all you have to do is be a member to establish consensus, the whole assembly idea is gone. Also, I have added an advisory committee, of four members, with limited power besides watching over the admin general and making sure he doesn't do anything stupid. Please look at the ammended charter, and I would love a comment. Redwolf24 (talk) 00:01, 21 September 2005 (UTC)

Thanks, red. The new charter is waaayyy better.--Exir KamalabadiFeel free to criticize me 09:51, 21 September 2005 (UTC)

The last time I'm spamming you all with Esperanza stuff[edit]

Hello Exir Kamalabadi. As you may or may not know, there have been some troubles with Esperanza. So now, as a last ditch to save the community, please vote at Wikipedia:Esperanza/Reform on all neccisary polls. P.S. I'm very sorry for spamming you all with these messages, and this will be the last time. I recommend putting ESP on your watchlist. Cheers and please look at that, let's stop the civil war then. Redwolf24 (talk) 02:43, 22 September 2005 (UTC)

What troubles? What hapened to JCarrier?--Exir KamalabadiFeel free to criticize me 09:33, 22 September 2005 (UTC)

From a fellow welcomer and Esperanzian...[edit]

... I just wanted to note that you have a little typo in your user page. "Welcoming committee" should only have one m. I hope you don't mind my pointing this out... I wouldn't want people to think that you are part of a group which delivers less-than-wholesome welcomes! (Though of course the link clarifies that.) Mamawrites 10:17, 22 September 2005 (UTC)

Thanks for pointing that out:)--Exir KamalabadiEsperanza 11:27, 24 September 2005 (UTC)


I'm sorry if I offended you. I also have a fair amount of interest in astronomy and used to give to the Vatican Observatory with some frequency. I don't know any Esperanto, but one of the local librarians is Bahai. Again I fear I insulted you and I apologize. Mea Culpa, Duibuqi, pardon moi, etc.--T. Anthony 11:57, 23 September 2005 (UTC)

Replied on you talk page--Exir KamalabadiEsperanza 11:21, 24 September 2005 (UTC)

Nihao from a friend in Shanghai[edit]

Nice to meet u! I live in Shanghai, too. I'm willing and eager to contribute to Wikipedia. Could I become one of your wikifriends?--Anthony Aragorn 12:30, 23 September 2005 (UTC)

Replied on you talk page--Exir KamalabadiEsperanza 11:21, 24 September 2005 (UTC)

Spelling error[edit]

Your welcome message says "fell free to contact me..."

Nice catch :)--Exir KamalabadiEsperanza 11:27, 24 September 2005 (UTC)

Direct to Disk Recording category[edit]

Dear Exir. Thanks very much for stub-sorting my DDR article. However, I feel it's not so much about electronics as about film making / video technology. Is there a category for this sort of thing? Many thanks Dan AKA Jack 25th Sept 2005 15:55 GMT

I don't think there is a category for this sort of things. Maybe sort it under ?--Exir KamalabadiEsperanza 10:04, 26 September 2005 (UTC)
OK, thanks... how about the Filming-stub? Many thanks Dan AKA Jack 26th Sept 2005 16:11 GMT
How about listing it under both stubs?--Exir KamalabadiEsperanza 01:35, 27 September 2005 (UTC)
Good plan. I'll do that. Many thanks Dan AKA Jack 27th Sept 2005 14:42 GMT

Spelling Error 2[edit]

There's a paragraph on your user page that reads "I used to just think of Wikipedia as an exeptionally good encyclopedia, but when I found out that I can edit almost any page inside this terrfic pool of knowledge, I was absolutly trilled. Imagine that! Just one simple edit and you might benefit thouthand or even millions of knowledge hungry people!" "terrfic" should be terrific, "absolutly" should be absolutely and "thouthand" should be thousand. Hope you don't mind me pointing this out. All the best, Vizjim 12:17, 26 September 2005 (UTC)

Thanks for pointing that out. Feel free to edit my userpage when something doesn't feel right.--Exir KamalabadiEsperanza 01:35, 27 September 2005 (UTC)


I've taken advantage of your suggestion that visitors edit your userpage. Specifically, I removed two redundant public domain tags and the wikipedia logo; it was looking a little crowded, methinks. I've also corrected several spelling and grammer mistakes, and added a few contractions. I generally rewrote several parts to make the text flow better. I think it's much improved by those few changes, but feel free to revert any changes you disagree with. ^_^ --Pathoschild 22:48, 26 September 2005 (EST)

Thanks for editing! :). I'm glad I added that sentence.--Exir KamalabadiEsperanza 02:55, 27 September 2005 (UTC)
You're welcome. :) --Pathoschild 23:36, 26 September 2005 (EST)

Close call[edit]

I nearly edited your welcome message page: I was just about to press save on what I thought was User talk:Williamnilly, but noticed that I was acutaully editing User:Exir Kamalabadi/Welcome. If anyone clicks on the small edit link that your welcome template message generates, they will do likewise. Just thought I'd let you know. Alf melmac 06:43, 27 September 2005 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

My RfA[edit]

Exir-- Thank you for your strong support on my RfA. I know we have not interacted much here on WP, but that makes your support mean that much more to me. When people who have no real reason to trust and believe someone do it anyway, it shows what makes WP great. If I do get promoted, I promise not to do anything to lose your trust. Cheers my friend. --Lord Voldemort (Dark Mark) 13:58, 30 September 2005 (UTC)

Oh, and I promise not to kill Harry Potter either. --Lord Voldemort (Dark Mark) 13:59, 30 September 2005 (UTC)
 :). I've seen you around a lot lately, we just haven't interacted. And why are so many people opposing?--Exir KamalabadiEsperanza 14:40, 30 September 2005 (UTC)
Well, there were some personal attacks in my past, and the whole JETFA thing seems to be turning some people away, but Im not really sure. It is supposed to be "no big deal." But I don't hold anything against them. They are allowed their opinions. See you around. --Lord Voldemort (Dark Mark) 14:52, 30 September 2005 (UTC)

==Who's RfA== Thank you for supporting my masters RfA. He appreciates your support and comments and looks forward to better serving Wikipedia the best he can. Of course I will be doing all of the real work. He would have responded to you directly, but he is currently out of town, and wanted to thank you asap. Thanks again. --Who's mop?¿? 20:42, 30 September 2005 (UTC)

Hello Spamlist![edit]

Ah, my first ever spam mass produced and mailed to the spamlist. Well first of all let me re-state that we have an irc channel, #wp-esperanza, and its been rather empty, so I'd appreciate it if you come, even if you just idle about. Now, the evil polls have closed, and I left a justification note for running the evil polls. Nothing has really changed, but at least I have somewhat of a consensus. I hope to figure out a way to overturn my power to JCarriker somehow, I'll figure out a way :-) Meanwhile, I've been busy reforming the mediation system where I am the chairman now, er, acting chairman. Enjoy your spam, with extra vikings. Redwolf24 (talk) 00:36, 1 October 2005 (UTC)

RMS Lusitania[edit]

There are some images you uploaded to the article that have no sources and questionable copyrights. Can you note the source from which you obtained the images? Thanks. Pentawing

I'm sure that the images of the telegraphs and bollards are fairuse, but I'm not sure about the image of the wreck (It is either PD or Fairuse)--Exir KamalabadiEsperanza 03:13, 2 October 2005 (UTC)
Oh, and I used to find those images.--Exir KamalabadiEsperanza 03:15, 2 October 2005 (UTC)


Thanks much for the kind welcome to Wikipedialand. :) -Phorteetoo 19:31, 2 October 2005 (UTC)

your welcomed :). Leave me a note when you need help.--Exir KamalabadiEsperanza 00:48, 3 October 2005 (UTC)


Hello spam list, look at this. Essjay is the new leader of Esperanza, and I'm interested in seeing how he runs it. I'm busy doing other work... Please comment at that talk page there. I will still probably run the spamlist though. Redwolf24 (talk) 22:57, 2 October 2005 (UTC)
