Vincent Gregory[edit]

Recently you tagged an article I wrote about Michigan state rep. Vincent Gregory, saying "This article may not meet the general notability guideline. Please help to establish notability by adding reliable, secondary sources about the topic. If notability cannot be established, the article is likely to be merged or deleted." According to the guidlines, a member of a state legislature is considered "notable". Most of the information in the article was obtained through an email correspondence with the State Rep. and is not available online anywhere else. I hope that I have established notablility and the tag can be removed. Chflitwick (talk) 19:49, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

Muhammad salallahho alayhi wasalam article[edit]

I don't think it was vandalism, it was just a dictionary definition. I've redirected it to Peace be upon him (Islam), a few other versions of it already redirect there.[1]. —Snigbrook 22:30, 17 February 2009 (UTC)

Black magic[edit]

There really wasn't much content, nor was the notability established. All the article said is that some woman invented it about three years ago by mixing Red Bull with something or other. Looked made-up to me, but if you feel it's notable, please feel free to recreate it if you wish. --PMDrive1061 (talk) 00:25, 18 February 2009 (UTC)

Speedy tagging[edit]

I am glad you are a reformed vandal who is now patrolling the new pages, but you might want to look at Wikipedia:Speedy as there are many more tags that can be used apart from db-vandalism. Using the right tag can ensure an admin knows what they are looking for before deleting it :) I Grave Rob (talk) 00:32, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

Adoption[edit]

I see you're seeking adoption. I just took one on, but it wouldn't be a bad idea to group 2 together. Kill two birds with one stone, ya know? Let me know if you're interested. ~ ωαdεstεr16«talkstalk» 03:51, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

Yes, it would be great if you could adopt me. I'm eager to improve my contributions to wikipedia. FingersOnRoids (talk) 20:22, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

Sounds good. First off add {{Adoptee|wadester16}} to your userpage to replace the other one. Now, if you will, go here and answer some introductory questions for me. Thanks! ~ ωαdεstεr16«talkstalk» 21:00, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

WikiPorject Novels[edit]

I saw you attached a bio stub to the David Keck page I created. If you found that page because you are a fan of the author, or maybe you are just a fan of books in general. If so:

CSD for Sowelu The Best 2002 - 20009[edit]

Hi, I wanted to let you know that I took off the CSD you put on Sowelu The Best 2002 - 20009. Unfortunately {{db-band}} only applies to the bands themselves and you cannot speedily delete an album under WP:A7, though if you want you could propose deletion through {{prod}} if you wish. Thanks, Valley2city 02:52, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

Reza Washahi[edit]

Hi there - see you added a prod to the article. No opinion yet on notability (though the article as it stands certainly doesn't establish it), but what makes you think it's a hoax? I didn't get that impression at all. Gonzonoir (talk) 21:31, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

Bidzar[edit]

Me again :) Could you look at this diff and tell me whether I'm crazy, or whether the rewrite of the lead was just really, really small? *g* Gonzonoir (talk) 22:41, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

Hm, interesting question. I don't think copyvio technically does apply here, since copyright would relate to the literal, specific phrasing in the original. This is also rather more nicely written than the average Bablefish rambling. What's the page you think might be the source? Gonzonoir (talk) 22:50, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

Welcome to Micro[edit]

Hi there, thanks for joining the Wikiproject! Tim Vickers (talk) 01:10, 22 February 2009 (UTC)

Algae categorisation[edit]

Hi, it could be easily done: just spell out exactly what the bot should do and I should be able to code it. I seem to recall WikiProject Plants disowning the algae, though - you should check with the wikiproject before the talk pages are tagged. Also note that all the new articles are categorised at a family level - I'm not sure what further categorisation is necessary. Martin (Smith609 – Talk) 18:35, 22 February 2009 (UTC)

Why the heck would a genus require a basionym to be redirected to? What? --KP Botany (talk) 06:45, 23 February 2009 (UTC)
I'm not sure where the discussion is. However, I did remove the prods. I checked a couple of articles and they were valid genera, if no validated (not necessarily no valid) species. Algae are in flux, huge flux, so it's not that big of an issue to have a genus without a species. It should be. Still, I'd leave them, merge the basionym to the genus if possible. --KP Botany (talk) 06:33, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

ginger snaps[edit]

Don't delete my page please! It is for a newly formed band that is trying to goe publicity! —Preceding unsigned comment added by Amicianthony (talkcontribs) 03:23, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

OK, thanks. Could I make a regular (not WP:BAND) article about the band then? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Amicianthony (talkcontribs) 03:46, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

More on Bidzar[edit]

Hi FoR: Following our discussion about this article I've copyedited the text. I think it no longer reads like a straight translation of the French UNESCO source. Could you give it a look over and see if it looks all right? Cheers. Gonzonoir (talk) 13:53, 4 March 2009 (UTC)

Algae Stubs[edit]

Hey, I noticed that you deleted the botany templates at the bottom of a bunch of algae stubs, and said in your edit summary it was because it wasn't within the scope of the plant wikiproject. Well, correct me if I'm wrong, but in the {{botany}} template, under plants, it lists algae. So did they change the scope of the wikiproject and forget to update the template? Regards, FingersOnRoids 00:03, 8 March 2009 (UTC)

Well, I removed {{botany}} from the algae stubs because it's one of those summary templates that's really only to be used to navigate between large topic areas, like those listed in the template. It's not meant to be on every individual species, genus, or family article. I removed {{WikiProject Plants}} from the talk page of a few algae stubs because the only algae WP:PLANTS is concerned with are the green algae, the Chlorophyta and Charophyta. I believe the stubs I said were not within our scope were red algae, which strictly speaking are not plants. Taxonomies and classifications differ, but green algae are usually considered to be in the same clade as land plants, though we frequently get misinformed high school kids changing the kingdom on articles like Volvox from Plantae to Protista (their textbooks are either outdated or chose to ignore new classification information; I recently taught an intro biology course at a community college and the book chosen -- not my choice -- still listed green algae as Protists and referred to all botanical divisions as phyla!). Hope that clears everything up. --Rkitko (talk) 02:08, 8 March 2009 (UTC)
E.g., Brachysiraceae, which you recently created. It is not considered to be a plant. It's a family of diatoms and thus wouldn't warrant {{WikiProject Plants}} on its talk page. --Rkitko (talk) 22:51, 9 March 2009 (UTC)
The best advice I can offer is to look at multiple sources. ITIS often uses outdated taxonomy. Diatoms haven't been included in Plantae for quite some time. Additionally, our article on plants has the proper circumscription - among algae, only the green algae (Chlorophyta and Charophyta) are plants. All others, including brown algae, red algae, diatoms, etc., are not plants. Does that help? --Rkitko (talk) 00:06, 10 March 2009 (UTC)

Adoption[edit]

Hey, I was wondering if you're still interested in the adoption process. Your adoption page has sat stale for more than two weeks. If you're no longer interested, that's perfectly fine, no hard feelings. I just wanted to make sure. ~ ωαdεstεr16kiss mei'm Irish 15:14, 8 March 2009 (UTC)

Help with Berching page image[edit]

I need some help formating an image on Berching (Apartment and Tower). You can check on Berching's discussion page for what I need help with, but I basically need to know some basic formating information for Wikipedia. Thanks! Amicianthony (talk) 18:05, 9 March 2009 (UTC)

Scott Yee[edit]

Hello. I see you've added a "copyright infringement" tag to the Scott Yee biography page. May I ask why? There wasn't any infringement on the page, that I could see. CJCurrie (talk) 22:42, 10 March 2009 (UTC)

I think I see the problem here. I believe the other site in question was actually a Wiki-mirror page. CJCurrie (talk) 00:39, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

Prod tag on National Register of Historic Places listings in Wythe County, Virginia[edit]

Hi Fingers ... I've removed the Prod tag you placed on National Register of Historic Places listings in Wythe County, Virginia and included a brief explanation in the edit summary. This list and hundreds of others like it have been generated by members of WP:NRHP. They are a very valuable resource for people interested in learning about historic properties and consolidate information in a way that is not available elsewhere. If you feel strongly that such lists do not belong on WP, please make your argument at WT:NRHP. --sanfranman59 (talk) 22:29, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

I did not edit the article with any intention to vandalize what was previously posted; conversely, I did edit the article with an intention--to make clearer the references to "chef," "cooking," and "fish." I did not post information, on [2], prior to what you refered to as my "... intentionally ... incorrect information...." I ask that you review, more thoroughly, my contribution to wikipedia; please consider reverting your action. I do hope that you do not mean to discourage editing on wikipedia? I do expect a prompt response. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.18.118.73 (talk) 22:50, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

Tommy Knight[edit]

I've undone your copyedit to Tommy Knight - he's British, as is Doctor Who Magazine, and they would have used UK spelling of paediatrician, not pediatrician. They both redirect to pediatrics anyway. See WP:ENGVAR. -- Arwel Parry (talk) 11:58, 28 March 2009 (UTC)

Good work in general, just thought I'd drop you a note re. Faraware, which I just came across. You do know that MH (probably) meant "Blatant and obvious misinformation" when he speedied under G3? Quite appropriate then, that it should be speedied, but I'm not too fussed either way. You are, of course, welcome to disagree! ;) - Jarry1250 (t, c) 16:49, 29 March 2009 (UTC)
