Cryptic responses[edit]

I entirely agree; there is no need whatsoever for people to get these pointless automated notifications. However, the new automatic notification system disagrees. Don't complain to me, complain to the programmers and developers. DS (talk) 22:17, 3 July 2013 (UTC)

October 2013[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Washington Redskins name controversy may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "[]"s. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

I'm curious[edit]

as to what you think about the MOVE (or whatever) suggestion happening at Nude (art)? Einar aka Carptrash (talk) 15:03, 25 October 2013 (UTC)

For the second time since I began editing a year ago, an article that I have been working on (basically alone) has been noticed by other WP users (but not contributors) with a contrary opinion as to what the article is about, and the direction it should take in the future. Since words only have meaning in context, changing the topic of an article has the effect of rendering my contributions questionable at best; perhaps even meaningless. This may sound the same as claiming "ownership" of an article; but it is my epistemological position, without which I can say nothing useful. FriendlyFred (talk) 01:05, 29 October 2013 (UTC)
I feel a sense of ownership for many articles. Caspar Buberl, for example was the first article that I created and then discovered that it was the first to be listed on google 2 minutes later. This seemed meaningful. Perhaps co-ownership is a better term, but, yes, it is annoying when folks show up out if the blue and start f**king around with something that I have spent real time and energy on. I did not comment on the name change, but think I will. Carptrash (talk) 02:07, 29 October 2013 (UTC)


I made some changes on the Nude (art) article, mostly the pictures. During the 19th century, odalisques became common fantasy figures in the artistic movement known as Orientalism, being featured in many erotic paintings from that era, and so on. I feel that it could be expanded a little more, like about 17th Century, the Flemmish, (Rembrandt&Rubens), Rococco, François Boucher, the 19th century before Renoir, in Nude (art)? I hate tagging things, I think it is better to talk first. Hafspajen (talk) 16:06, 20 November 2013 (UTC)

Since the odalisque has its own article, I see no great need to add much on that sub-topic in the general article on the Nude, which needs more text, not more pictures.FriendlyFred (talk) 05:04, 21 November 2013 (UTC)
  • Yes, exactly. I was also talking about text, not pictures. I mean, to make the article complete one need to cower some of the other eras to. Hafspajen (talk) 17:46, 21 November 2013 (UTC)
  • I will be glad to have anyone with an art history education become the major contributor. While I defended the article from its recent attack, I have actually moved to other interests which match my background in the social sciences.FriendlyFred (talk) 18:36, 21 November 2013 (UTC)

The City of Washington and the District of Columbia[edit]

I have opened a proposal in the {{United States topic}} template about the difference between the City of Washington and the District of Columbia here. Any insight, and if possible, support, you can give towards this would be greatly appreciated. It is time this issue is dealt with permanently. Int21h (talk) 18:21, 16 August 2014 (UTC)
