Minnesota Baseball

Since you are a baseball nut I thought you might like this, plus it would probably make an great wiki reference [1]. -Ravedave 03:16, 2 July 2006 (UTC)

Polisario Front

I'm not trying to get into any sort of article dispute here. I simply was reverting an edit that I recognized as clearly NPOV. I have no opinions regarding this article. In fact, I don't even fully understand the issue. I was only here reverting something NPOV, and am not trying to participate in any argument. (Note: This was also posted on the article's talkpage for the sake of posterity, but I figure this is more of a note to you than a note to the dispute.) Mo0[talk] 01:34, 3 July 2006 (UTC)

regarding User:24.94.126.250

My block of this user was not for his/her comments on the article or talk page of Polisario Front. Instead I blocked this user because of the following edits userpage vandalism[2] [3] [4] [5]. But what made me block them was the fact that this user made a threat in an edit [6]. My block would not have been so long, if not for the numerous previous blocks before mine. This user needs to learn a lot about editing on wikipedia. -- malo (tlk) (cntrbtns) 02:01, 3 July 2006 (UTC)

False Prophet: Do not revert others changes with your misperception of vandalism. I put together the Eagle Heraldry page from scratch and edited the poor alterations later inserted by the others. I will try again. Examine changes carefully next time. Do not change unless what you do is meaningful. Thanks.

Thank you for experimenting with the page Eagle (heraldry) on Wikipedia. Your test worked, and has been reverted or removed. Please use the sandbox for any other tests you want to do. Take a look at the welcome page if you would like to learn more about contributing to our encyclopedia.

Minnesota Sports

If you are trying to add sports info about the state of Minnesota, the biggest news ever is probably Lindsay Whalen. She practically turned the Golden Gopher program around single handedly and shattered every record. She is a minnesota basketball icon, IMHO even bigger than Kevin Garnett.

  • I'd be glad to help with the outstate college teams, just let me know when the project starts to take shape, and if their is a specific format for information that you would like to me to follow (Nice to see another Gophers fan as well!) --Colslax 22:46, 10 July 2006 (UTC)

Novels WikiProject Newsletter July 2006

Here is the new edition of our monthly newsletter.

Book collection.jpg
The Novels WikiProject Newsletter
Issue II - July 2006
Project news
  • The project's automatically generated worklist Novels without Infobox has been worked through giving infoboxes to most of the {{mystery-novel-stub}}s. This is about to get a regeneration probably with new genres.
  • In addition to the raft of articles on the Simon Templar as The Saint novels added last month, then the Modesty Blaise series and now starting on Matt Helm series. All the inital work of one editor!
  • One editor has been putting in sterling work coverting novel articles from "yyyy books" categorization over to "yyyy novels".
  • Again notice that the {{Infobox Book}} now has a new field for "illustrator" for indicating the name of someone who has illustrated the majority of the novel (or book).
Member News
  • The project has currently 104 members, 16 joined since the last newsletter in mid June 2006.
From the Members

Welcome to the second issue of the Novels WikiProject's newsletter! Use this newsletter as a mechanism to inform yourselves about progress at the project and please be inspired to take more active roles in what we do.

Particularly as this is only the second issue; any comments and suggestions are quite welcome, and will help us improve the newsletter in the coming months.

Kevinalewis : (Talk Page)/(Desk), Initiating Editor

Auto list news
  • Currently we have two lists that are up and running. Undergoing testing, the third list will contain articles that have incomplete infoboxes. The new list is at NovelsInCompleteInfobox and will be very active as both a new list and a new format are being tested out at the same time. (probably ready for use by 8th July 2006) Eagle talk
Current debates
  • New book related notability proposals have been started and are to be seen at Wikipedia:Notability (books), please take a look at these and comment. These are NOT active yet, although at first sight they seem a good basis.
  • Categorization of novels debate is currently ongoing. Further input would be very welcome.
Current proposals
  • You may have seen proparations going on behind the scenes with a view to establishing a format "Assessment Department". The aim of this will be to aid our efforts in improving novel articles particularly in tune with WP:1.0 and WP:WVWP methdology.
  • There has been a small amount of interest in a Collaboration of the Week/Fortnight/Month, but to be viable we would need support.

Attck at

He hit the Dunkin' Donuts article of all places, a user tagged him as WOW. I rasied the Defcon as a precaution, Just in case these was more. Seems to have settled down now. Aeon Insane Ward 02:47, 12 July 2006 (UTC)

I disagree to your assumption with the Bears article

If these sections are not necessary in the article then the Arsenal F.C. article should be removed from the featured articles list because it has a section involving Arsenal in popular culture. The history section is not as descriptive as the Patroits history because the Bears franchise history is twice as long, and that is why there is a separate daughter article detailing the Bears franchise history. The history section is just a summary. Thanks for reading this --Happyman22 02:36, 20 July 2006 (UTC)

  • I kind of see what people are trying to point out, but is the question calling for the merging of ownership, uniforms and logos into the history section the only obstacle preventing this article from achieving featured status? --Happyman22 03:29, 20 July 2006 (UTC)
    • I have merged the ownership section into the history section and I am about to expand and divide the history section. I see what you are saying and I will probably get rid of or merge the Honey Bears into the history section. --Happyman22 19:03, 20 July 2006 (UTC)

Petition

I agree somewhat. I won't sign it because I don't know if it's anti-wiki. Or, I don't know if anti-wiki is bad. Your petition is trying to address broader issues. My comment is not that it's antiwiki but that it seems like a shoddy method and more convoluted. Something like this needs a long discussion and at least in the short term no stable version should be the first thing people see... unless there is a system. So, I don't want to sign it because I don't agree with it all. I was curious if you would ever support a system that let people choose which version they see as the main version. gren グレン 06:39, 22 July 2006 (UTC)

Thanks!

But you need to take out the petition link in your signature. I had it in mine and Cyde told me to remove it because editors (such as Karmafist) have been blocked for that. GangstaEB (sliding logs~dive logs) 11:53, 22 July 2006 (UTC)

show/hide problems

Essjay asked me to take a look at your show/hide problem on your user page. I believe I have fixed it. The transcluded items have to have some blank space and they also seem to be order dependent. You had membership twice so I removed one copy. I reorged membership and put the userbox for the Fascism project on instead of the link, hope that's OK. I also added some blank lines to the music subpage. I thinhk it's fixed now. Good luck. ++Lar: t/c 03:44, 23 July 2006 (UTC) (refactored to keep threads together)

Thanks for fixing some of it, but the Affiliations section and the babel section still dont work right. Wikipedia's False Prophet holla at me Improve Me 03:51, 23 July 2006 (UTC)
I didn't fix those, I just fixed the first broken one I spotted. Hopefully you can do a diff on the two transcluded sections I changed and try the same changes yourself and be all sorted, once you see what it was I did (and why). Good luck. I'll watch this page for a while to see your replies. ++Lar: t/c 03:55, 23 July 2006 (UTC)
Hey, thanks for the barnstar. I take it you were able to suss out what needed fixing. glad to have been of help. Happy editing! ++Lar: t/c 04:33, 23 July 2006 (UTC)
