Hello Gamer,
I didn't mean to make anyone think that I was advertising a personal project. WikiLou is a new wiki for the St. Louis area. It is encyclopedic, and a great tool for the local people here. It's new, I'll give you that, but that's no reason to take it down, in my opinion. I have no personal stake in it, so I've got nothing to gain or lose here, but I thought it was appropriate on the St. Louis page. Especially seeing as there are links to a site about St. Louis history, and one to forums about St. Louis. It doesn't seem inappropriate to me. And I think it is important to note when a city or area has a wiki of it's own. I'll post on the talk page too. Thanks. --Mijunkin 01:58, 4 October 2006 (UTC)

Semi-protection[edit]

I have semi-protected the page Janelle Pierzina as per your request on Wikipedia:Requests for page protection. Thank you for taking the time to file your request. Best reagrds, RyanGerbil10(Kick 'em in the dishpan!) 14:07, 10 October 2006 (UTC)

Flavor Flav[edit]

Please stop deleting Flavor Flav additions. The addition is purely factual, we advertise nothing.

I hardly call your advertisment of your Counterstrike Clan named "Team Flavor Flav" a valid Wikipedia addition. Direct futher coments on this to the Flavor Flav talkpage, not mine.Gamer83 18:37, 12 October 2006 (UTC)


St. Louie Louie[edit]

  • You said:

""St. Louie Louie" does not pass Wikipedia:Notability (web). It is a new forum with 13 members. Currently the site has no pertinent information about St. Louis. It appears to be a cheap clone of the existing forum link."

Cheap clone of the existing forum link? If you actually check the forums, you'll see they are set up very differently from that other forum. In fact, I started this forum as an alternative to that other one, because the other one is very strict regarding content. Recently, a topic arose where users were discussing the similarities and differences between St. Louis and Chicago, and the administrator LOCKED IT simply because it wasn't 100% St. Louis-related. My forum will give people an opportunity to discuss this stuff more freely, without fear that their posts will be locked if they dare to veer a little off the beaten path. Maybe if you'd actually investigate things more closely before pulling the trigger on deleting links you would have noticed this. It's people like you that make Wikipedia annoying as hell to use.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by Kopper (talkcontribs) 05:46, 16 October 2006.

  • Whoa a little intense response on my talk page! I'm sorry I'm making Wikipedia "Annoying as hell to use" for you. I am just enforcing the rules. I think it's great that you started your own forum, but Wikipedia is not a vessel for you to use to advertise/promote your new forum. The other forum link is only allowed to remain because it is the current dominant forum for St. Louis. Evidence was shown that various city officials post there, and it is widely known and the best source of information on St. Louis. Wikipedia is a source for information, not advertisements/self-promotion. It is against Wikipedia policy to post any external links to sites you are affiliated with, check the links I posted for confirmation of that rule if you wish. I apologize if you feel my enforcement of the rules has upset you.Gamer83 06:28, 16 October 2006 (UTC)

Your request for investigation[edit]

Hello Gamer83. Please attempt the dispute resolution process before filing a request for investigation or watchlisting into users editing Flavor Flav. If you have followed the process, please provide links showing this in your next request. Thanks. —[admin] Pathoschild 21:42, 2 November 2006 (UTC)

WikiLou[edit]

I understand your initial concerns regarding WikiLou, and even agree with them. However, WikiLou has become much larger, with an extensive readership. It now has over 1100 articles and nearly 100,000 unique hits. There is new discussion from other users on this issue. I'd like to know what you think the threshold for WikiLou being notable enough to mention would be. I don't want to have any edit wars or nastiness (as seems to have happened when this came up before, judging from the talk page). I just want to see your logic. Thanks.

I'll begin by saying I smell some serious sockpuppeting/meatpuppeting, because there is no way you could know how many "unique hits" a site has unless you are in fact that site's owner. Secondly, the threshold for when the site can be included is not set by myself, it is set by Wikipedia:Notability (web). Read the policy, and make your case based on that. And please stop starting new discussions under different usernames/anonymous IPs, that too is against wikipedia policy. FUrther discussion of this topic should be carried out on at the talkpage of the article.Gamer83 19:32, 15 May 2007 (UTC)

Brooke Thompson[edit]

Just wanted to point out that while Brook Thompson got closed out with a speedy, Brooke Thompson isn't even AfD'd... I thought based on your nom you thought the person did not pass WP:BIO at all and so thought you might like to know.. --Jaysweet 15:30, 11 July 2007 (UTC)

Comment[edit]

What's with the allegation? I have replied civilly to everyone with whom I've discussed. I provided reasons for my arguments, I tried to improve articles, I have not just hovered on those discussions, etc. In fact the only reason I have participated in them was to show that I could do so without creating additional accounts. Your comment on Durova's page was really unfair and unwarranted. Sincerely, --Le Grand Roi des CitrouillesTally-ho! 17:52, 11 July 2007 (UTC)

WikiProject St. Louis[edit]

Went ahead and created the project. Take a look:

Hello, I noticed you've made edits to St. Louis articles or that you are in some way connected to metropolitan area. I thought you might want to become a member of the St. Louis WikiProject. We've recently built the project page and started a drive to improve St. Louis related articles. Please take a look to edit an article or add one of your own. Once an article's status has been agreed upon, feel free to stop by and lend a hand in getting it to featured article status. Hope you can participate!

AfD nomination of Janelle Pierzina[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

An editor has nominated one or more articles which you have created or worked on, for deletion. The nominated article is Janelle Pierzina. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also Wikipedia:Notability and "What Wikipedia is not").

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion(s) by adding your comments to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Janelle Pierzina 3. Please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate.

Please note: This is an automatic notification by a bot. I have nothing to do with this article or the deletion nomination, and can't do anything about it. --Erwin85Bot (talk) 01:44, 24 November 2009 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
