An apology for my former disruptive behavior at the Teahouse[edit]

Hello. I have come here to apologize for my disruptive and uncivil behavior on the Wikipedia Teahouse a year ago. I am sorry for any rude things that I said to the Wikipedia community and aboutt falsely accusing them of having an adgenda against hate groups, pseudoscience promoters, and pedophiles. To be clear, I do not support or advocate these group's ideologies, "especially those of pedophiles who view adult-child sexual relationships as healthy and harmless", on or off Wikipedia. Please forgive me. Frogger48 (talk) 07:04, 25 June 2016 (UTC)

Los Angeles (desambiguation)[edit]

Why not in Los Angeles (desambiguation) not should appear that these words are derivative from Spanish words?. this same should apply it in desambiguations Bambino, Amour, Je t'aime, Über Alles (disambiguation), etc, etc.--Vvven (talk) 19:35, 27 December 2015 (UTC)

Mostly because Wikipedia is not a dictionary and that your link does not go to an article in the encyclopedia that has anything to do with Los Angeles. Nevertheless, I don't feel strongly enough about it to revert your addition. Maybe you will do it yourself. Sincerely, BeenAroundAWhile (talk) 23:04, 27 December 2015 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help.

Danube Delta[edit]

You deleted a para, as it was not supported by a citation. Would it perhaps be better to add a "citation needed" tag in the text instead? Otherwise how will anyone know one is needed for that information? :) ~ P-123 (talk) 11:46, 1 January 2016 (UTC)

Westwood, Los Angeles[edit]

Hi! I want to add in a bit about Warner Elementary from:

  • Hardy, Terry. "Top of the Class" (education section). Los Angeles Magazine. Emmis Communications, October 1998. Vol. 43, No. 10. ISSN 1522-9149. Start: p. 52. CITED: p. 56.
    • The school had some issues with multiple principals coming and going before Jeff Felz came in, and once he did he encouraged more parental participation.

Also I need a cite saying that Westwood is zoned to University High School... WhisperToMe (talk) 03:39, 6 January 2016 (UTC)

Your edit[edit]

There is an ongoing battle against vandals and real estate spammers adding "affluent" to city articles. I have no idea why you reverted this edit. Magnolia677 (talk) 17:12, 9 January 2016 (UTC)

Well, I finally understand the problem upon your explanation. Nevertheless, when one of the salient facts about a neighborhood is its wealth, or lack of wealth — or any other distinguishing characteristic — then that fact should be mentioned in the lead, and not simply ignored. I invite you to take part in the discussion on the Sherman Oaks, California, talk page, where I point out that this matter has been carefully considered by others (not just me), and the conclusion reached was that if we can find the sources, we can use "affluent" as a descriptor for a neighborhood. I hope that helps you in considering this and other articles like it. Yours, BeenAroundAWhile (talk) 06:36, 10 January 2016 (UTC)
I read the discussion long ago, and consensus was reached to stop adding that stupid word. This isn't a battleground. Why not focus your energy on something that will actually help Wikipedia? Magnolia677 (talk) 20:45, 10 January 2016 (UTC)
I think you might have read a different discussion, could that be? In any event, it is not stupid to describe a community the way it is. I am surprised that anybody would think so. Sincerely, BeenAroundAWhile (talk) 19:31, 13 January 2016 (UTC)

Spanish articles on senior high schools[edit]

Hi! I have been writing some Spanish language stubs on LAUSD high schools for the following reasons:

  • To expand Spanish-language coverage of the Los Angeles area
  • As a courtesy for Spanish-speaking immigrants who have poor English comprehension
  • To encourage the children of these immigrants-students at these schools-to become Wikipedians and improve coverage of U.S. articles in both English and Spanish

I am also having articles on other languages made depending upon the community demographics. An Armenian user made an Armenian article on Grant High School (Los Angeles) and I'm trying to have a Korean editor make that version for Los Angeles High School.

Do you know some Spanish? If so you are welcome to help in this effort :) WhisperToMe (talk) 09:16, 10 January 2016 (UTC)

Hello, Whisper. I'm afraid I don't know enough Spanish to help out. French, yes. But not much call for that in L.A. BeenAroundAWhile (talk) 09:21, 10 January 2016 (UTC)
There are two French international schools in Los Angeles: Lycee Francais de Los Angeles and Lycee International de Los Angeles so if you'd like you can help out with those. Also if you take photos for Wikipedia please let me know, as I can give you a "shopping list" of photos that can help the articles. if you tell me what parts are most convenient I can give you a list :) WhisperToMe (talk) 11:19, 10 January 2016 (UTC)

Hello, Thomas. I am sorry, but it is not my opinion. It is the opinion of WP:Reliable sources, which are cited.

Edit-warring on articles about districts of Los Angeles[edit]

Stop icon

Your recent editing history at Sherman Oaks, Los Angeles shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. To resolve the content dispute, please do not revert or change the edits of others when you are reverted. Instead of reverting, please use the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. The best practice at this stage is to discuss, not edit-war. See BRD for how this is done. If discussions reach an impasse, you can then post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.
Note that in addition to Sherman Oaks, Los Angeles, this edit-warring also extends to Encino, Los Angeles and Toluca Lake, Los Angeles. If you are unable to reach agreement with the other editors involved, I suggest that you open a WP:RFC to find a consensus solution, and that in the meantime you all stop adding and/or reverting contested material. --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 21:40, 17 January 2016 (UTC)

Pacoima, Los Angeles[edit]

I put the population into the intro to give an idea of how big it is. It isn't an area with three people, it has over 100,000 which is a BIG area. Unfortunately, it was measured in an odd way (by using the population in the zip code) so had to be stated in a complex manner in order to not be misleading about how it was measured. If you have a better way to word it I'd appreciate it. RJFJR (talk) 14:43, 25 February 2016 (UTC)

I see your point, but the WP:lead should be a summation of the entire article. We can work on that. BeenAroundAWhile (talk) 20:13, 25 February 2016 (UTC)
There are more items that might be added to give it context but the population is probably one of them. Any idea of a good way to word it? RJFJR (talk) 22:07, 25 February 2016 (UTC)

RfC on LA Metro[edit]

Hi there,

Would you be open to creating redirects for people who, for instance, search for Palms station, as per Metro, that is not the official name. It really should be just Palms, for example. TJH2018 (talk) 01:13, 28 February 2016 (UTC)

I am not sure how that would work, nor what "It really should be just Palms" means. The objection of most commenting editors is to the syntax of the opening sentence, because, as has been stated, Palms is not a station, but it is a community. I might add that when people who live in Palms want to take a train, they will go to Palms station, and not to Palms, because they are already IN Palms. I hope to hear from you again.

Wik-Ed Women Session #5
We Can Edit.jpg

Dear fellow Wikipedian,

I would like to personally invite you to the March edition of the Wik-Ed Women meetup, which will take place on March 15, from 6-10 in the evening. It will occur at Los Angeles Contemporary Archive, 2245 E Washington Blvd, Los Angeles, California 90021 (downtown LA -- map). The building has a pink top with old signage for American Accessories, Inc. dba Princess Accessories (Photos [PDF]). There is on-site parking in the back, which also has an entrance. If you cannot attend in person, you are more than willing to work remotely, as we appreciate all help that you can provide. Finally, here is a link to the Facebook event, in case you want to invite friends, as we are always looking for new editors to help expand coverage of women on Wikipedia!

I hope to see you there! Cosmicphantom (talk) - via MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 05:54, 15 March 2016 (UTC)

Join our Facebook group here! To opt out of future mailings about LA meetups, please remove your name from this list.

Wiltshire Park redirect[edit]

Hi, Have had a query raised with me regarding the redirect of this page. Could you provide a bit more explanation of the redirect (no issue if you cant). Would you have any objections in the removal of the redirect restoring the previous page? Any advice or just a cant remember I've slept since then would be appreciated. Amortias (T)(C) 20:30, 19 March 2016 (UTC)

Hello. This little enclave does not offer any sources to show that it is a true neighborhood of Los Angeles. Quite often homeowners' groups or interested real-estate people will say that any given geographical area is a legitimate neighborhood even when they don't have any WP:Reliable sources to prove it. I believe this was the case with this article, which you can find here. If any editor or other neutral person wants to write an article citing such sources, I am sure that it would be cheerfully accepted by the community. Does this help? BeenAroundAWhile (talk) 22:20, 19 March 2016 (UTC)
Yes, I would object to restoring the former page. BeenAroundAWhile (talk) 22:27, 19 March 2016 (UTC)
That's fine. Will relay the message. Amortias (T)(C) 22:55, 19 March 2016 (UTC)

Removal of comment[edit]

My comment on KoreaTown wikipage was eliminated by you. As for being neutral, I have an unpaid position with the association whose webpage was eliminated and redirected to Koreatown wikipage. This has happened to other neighborhood pages that have been reduced to Koreatown. This is a political issue about ethnic enclaves an identity. I appreciate the policing but registering my complaint about having our wikipage eliminated and redirected does deserve to have it comments protected. Where were you when our wikipage was removed and redirected to Koreatown wikipage?554938Wilshire (talk) 19:16, 20 March 2016 (UTC)

Trying to help you out, I did a search in the LAPL files of the Los Angeles Times for "Wilshire Park," but I couldn't find any reference to it as an authentic neighborhood. Do you have other WP:Reliable sources? If you do, let me know, and I will write up an article about the neighborhood for submission. (It is listed as a Historic Overlay Zone, which is not a neighborhood, but simply a zone within a neighborhood.) Or, you can ask some other uninvolved person to do it. Best wishes, BeenAroundAWhile (talk) 19:36, 20 March 2016 (UTC)

Wilshire Park[edit]

Thank you for the link - I am learning as fast as I can, but I am new at this. Your help is very much appreciated. I will tighten it up as suggested, change the tone, and beef up the references - already working on self-educating so I can do a good job.

I have a question for you, since you are a specialist on the narrower topic of neighborhood pages.

What does it take to be allowed a Wikipedia page as a real "neighborhood"? Hancock Park, Windsor Square, Arlington Heights and even "the Flower District," a market for making profit, are allowed pages. How is WP different? WP is identified by Thomas Brothers Guides, by our Neighborhood Council (Greater Wilshire), by the Office of Historic Resources, and even within the Wikipedia page called "List of Districts and Neighborhoods in Los Angeles." What is the criteria for suppressing a page like the WP page, with Wikipedia's support for the suppressor (until you helped me out)? It seems random and arbitrary - or a convenient excuse for somebody with a political agenda and psychic powers to deduce evil where there is none.

WP is an historic district, and as you know, education is necessary to effectively prevent the loss of historic resources. The WP site had links to City agencies, historic articles, etc. The Wilshire Park Association, the "enclave" refered to so dismissively, is a legitimate 501(c)(3) non-profit with a mandate to educate and teeny-tiny barely-break-even assets - all from the donations of residents. The members are all volunteers and have no profit motive. WP doesn't need or want a presence on Wikipedia for any other reason than to make our historic district function well for the benefit of current and future residents. The removal of this information, which is valuable on many levels, was wrong. How arrogant of the KTown editor to let his imagination see little WP as a threat to the Koreatown fiefdom and cause all this bad feeling and resentment. And it's a shame. It's divisive. And wasteful.

This has also been done to neighborhoods miles away from Koreatown, by the same editor. Clearly, to me, the motivation here is something other than as stated. This is obviously flag planting and suppression. How can Wikipedia, whose mantra is respect, free expression and factual accuracy, allow this and side with this editor, and offer no solution to the conflict except to let it happen? It was necessary to lie about fellow editors and 'gin up non-existent conflicts of interest to do it, but Wikipedia bought it wholesale with no investigation of this editor's history. "Helpful," as one dismissive response said, or not, the term that applies is "bullying."

As I said, I am working on a new page, but I am afraid it will be attacked again. I don't have the time or appetite to play with this game any more. How do I get this to stop, once and for all, considering this is a repeat performance? Does this behavior rise to the level of requiring administrative intervention? Can the editor be banned from interfering further, based on the past and current incidents? WayBackHomes (talk) 03:25, 22 March 2016 (UTC)

— Preceding unsigned comment added by WayBackHomes (talkcontribs) 03:14, 22 March 2016 (UTC)


I am glad to help you out, but I think you are misconstruing a few things.

First, I was the editor responsible for merging the article on Wilshire Park, Los Angeles, to Koreatown, Los Angeles. I did this on 23 December because the former article, which you can read by clicking here, did not have the required WP:Reliable sources to fill out a complete article in the Wikipedia style.

There were other problems with the old Wilshire Park article, too, all of which were marked at the top of the page; that is,

  • This article needs additional citations for verification. (July 2013)
  • The topic of this article may not meet Wikipedia's general notability guideline. (July 2013)
  • This article possibly contains original research. (July 2013)
  • This article's tone or style may not reflect the encyclopedic tone used on Wikipedia. (July 2013)
  • This article has an unclear citation style. (August 2009)

Therefore, as is often the case (spelled out in this essay), I redirected the page to Koreatown, Los Angeles, which is a larger neighborhood of which Wilshire Park is a part (according to a very good source, the Los Angeles Times.)

To respond to some of your points:

  • What does it take to be allowed a Wikipedia page as a real "neighborhood"? If a WP:Reliable source refers to any given district as a "neighborhood," or a "district," then I have been listing them at List of districts and neighborhoods of Los Angeles. If they have enough information that can be found in WP:Reliable sources, then somebody might write a separate article about them, or a separate article might already have been written.
  • WP is identified by Thomas Brothers Guides, by our Neighborhood Council (Greater Wilshire), by the Office of Historic Resources. As odd as it may appear, Wikipedia uses for the most part only secondary sources, not primary. Read all about it at Wikipedia:Identifying and using primary and secondary sources. This is to assure that the subject of the article is indeed WP:Notable (that is, people are taking note of it). This is a stricture that many folks have difficulty in comprehending.
  • What is the criteria for suppressing a page like the WP page? The page is not "suppressed." It is simply redirected to another page where cited information about Wilshire Park can be found. Anybody can add additional information there with, of course, neutral, reliable sources. If there are enough sources (that is, a lot of places where folks are talking about Wilshire Park), then a larger article can be written.
  • Can the editor be banned from interfering further, based on the past and current incidents? Yes, there is a procedure to have any such editor called to account, but it would be better (in my opinion) to concentrate on encyclopedia-article writing.

I hope this helps. Sincerely, BeenAroundAWhile (talk) 04:40, 22 March 2016 (UTC)

Wilshire Park MIA
Hi BeenAroundAWhile, thank you for the notice on the merger discussion for Wilshire Park, Los Angeles. I just checked in on it and discovered the entire article has disappeared — into a draft format by Ronhjones. I tried reverting it back to the non-draft article, but couldn't. Can it be retrieved? If so can it also be protected? Perhaps beyond even autoconfirmed editors for a cooling off period? Thanks, Look2See1 t a l k → 08:05, 23 March 2016 (UTC)
It looks like some other editors are working on this, so the new draft will go through the normal approval process. BeenAroundAWhile (talk) 23:08, 24 March 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for all your help. I am editing the article according to the information you have provided, and I am slogging through a manual that is a little easier to deal with for a new user. It is submitted for review, and I am continuing to add legitimate references while it goes through process. However another user seems to be poised to remove/redirect/delete it again. How do I get some protection proactively? — Preceding unsigned comment added by BobOfAllTrades (talkcontribs) 15:11, 25 March 2016 (UTC)

Thank you for the tidy-up. I want to fix the "multiple issues," but am a little confused about what the "original research" issue is and the reversion of the tags. Could you please explain so I can fix? — Preceding unsigned comment added by BobOfAllTrades (talkcontribs) 21:42, 29 March 2016 (UTC) BobOfAllTrades (talk) 23:04, 29 March 2016 (UTC)

Hello, again. It would be better to ask a similar question in the Talk page of that article. Right now I am working on another project. From the editing you have done over there, you seem to want to do the right thing, and I hope you stick around to work on other articles with which you might have an interest, but not a direct connection. Once you learn the ropes, perhaps you'd like to lend your talents as an editor and a writer to some of the other areas in Wikipedia? BeenAroundAWhile (talk) 02:09, 30 March 2016 (UTC)

And thank you - you have taught me a lot, and I appreciate your time. I really am trying to wrap my head around this but with only limited results. Writing is not really my long suit, as you can tell, and it was kind of you to suggest that I continue. My "direct connection" as it is called has been deliberately suppressed in the latest revision, I have added many new sources including from the LA Times, and deleted anything that could reasonably be considered subjective or poorly cited, but it is still being flagged. It is no different in tone, content or citations than pages for analogous named communities like Hancock Park, Windsor Square, Los Angeles, Miracle Mile, Los Angeles and many others. It feels like being told "Bring me the broom of the Wicked Witch of the West." I will, however, do as you suggest and ask this question of all the editors of the article.

Hi, my intention in highlighting that Russian public opinion survey in the Pussy Riot article was to give a cultural context to their LGBT advocacy. In the West we have undergone a major cultural shift in the past 50 years; LGBT people are generally accepted and most of us have at least got to the point of acknowledging that someone's personal life is their own business. Russia hasn't gone through this cultural shift, so PR's LGBT advocacy is quite shocking to conservative Russians and was probably a factor in the conservative backlash leading to the anti-gay advocacy laws. I think the article is better if some cultural context is given, and the public opinion survey is one way to do this. MaxBrowne (talk) 03:54, 3 August 2016 (UTC)

Thank you for writing, and for being polite. I appreciate it. Please simply restore the information, with a source. Sincerely, BeenAroundAWhile (talk) 14:04, 3 August 2016 (UTC)

James Greer McDonald[edit]

Can you explain in more detail your reasoning behind the revert? 'we don't need this level of detail' makes no sense. The birth day of the person is already in the article, so the 'level of detail' is already there, I simply made it more consistent with other biographical articles. For a simple example, look at the Deaths in 2016 list, and you will note that every single article, large and small, consistently does the same thing with birth and death dates. Why on earth would this particular biographical article fall outside of the norm. Omegastar (talk) 01:47, 22 August 2016 (UTC)

Because to my knowledge there is no guideline, or policy, demanding that exact birthdates be placed in the lead of the story. I think you can agree that the main thrust of a lead should be the MAJOR details of a person's life, not the exact date the person was born, which teh reader can find later on. All people are really interested in at first glance is the time period that the subject lived. I am sorry that other articles have the exact birthdates, but I am not watching those. If you can find a policy that REQUIRES the exact birth dates, I would be happy to be notified. Sincerely, BeenAroundAWhile (talk) 03:37, 22 August 2016 (UTC)
Here is the policy: Wikipedia:Manual_of_Style/Biographies#Opening_paragraph. Specifically, point 2, "Dates of birth and death, if known". The examples given below all provide the day of the month of the year, with the only exception being lack of knowledge of said day or the month of the year. Since that knowledge is not lacking for the birthdate of James Greer McDonald, it should be included in the lead. Omegastar (talk) 19:14, 22 August 2016 (UTC)
That is a guideline, not a policy, and I don't happen to agree with it. Cramming specific birthdates into a lead is simply cramming too much extraneous information into it, and I am sure you can see my point. Still, I appreciate your looking up this guideline. Doesn't change my mind about good composition though. I really can't see the point of taking a perfectly good sentence and adding a few words that destroy its flow. But it is your decision. Good luck with your editing. Sincerely, your friend, BeenAroundAWhile (talk) 17:58, 23 August 2016 (UTC)

Edits to La Canada Flintridge page[edit]

Just wanted to further clarify my edits to the La Canada page to avoid any back an forth. Sport Chalet's source page shows it closure, the wording was been adjusted to reflect this as requested on the talk page. Delphi Academy of Los Angeles is a dead link, I had removed it. Also it seems that La Crescenta-Montrose percentages didn't add up (66+20+20 > 100). I had updated the percentages to reflect the referenced source to match. I would appreciate it if instead of simply reverting edits you check out the talk page or the referenced sources. If any of my edits look unclear, or if I am making any assumptions you think are wrong I would love to hear why you think these edits are incorrect and see if there is a better solution. Thanks! Apriestofgix (talk) 20:17, 3 October 2016 (UTC)

I am more of the WP:BRD kind of editor. In other words, revert first and discuss only if there is an objection. But I see your point. BeenAroundAWhile (talk) 20:28, 3 October 2016 (UTC)
All good! I know you're just looking out for the health of the page, so no hard feelings. Thanks for the cleanup you're doing right now. Cheers! Apriestofgix (talk) 20:31, 3 October 2016 (UTC)

Re: About my contributions[edit]

Just curious, can you got back to my talk page again? I'm a little confused about the part where my contributions were unacceptable because they cannot accept "original research." I just renamed some pages because some of the channel names were changed by the NPO. Any thing that has to do with this, please let me know. I didn't do anything wrong or did any additional changes towards most of the context. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 20chances (talkcontribs) 22:09, 11 October 2016 (UTC)

OK. I will get over there sometime today or tomorrow. Cheers! BeenAroundAWhile (talk) 22:52, 11 October 2016 (UTC)
So I should just revert the edits that were considered unaccepted due to the lack of any sourced? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 20chances (talkcontribs) 11:07, 12 October 2016 (UTC)

Reply[edit]

I got those information from other Wikipedia articles, and the references that I have provided comes from the various online articles published by the various news agencies and some of them are from reputable entertainment magazines. Just wondering why did you ask me for that question because I am very surprised that you would be interested to know my reasonings behind it. Xinyang Aliciabritney (talk) 04:39, 13 October 2016 (UTC)

References and further reading[edit]

I just have to speak to you about this edit which is rather misguided. Further reading is for sources that may be of interest to the reader but have not been used to provide information to construct the article. In this particular article that is obviously not the case because the works listed have all been cited multiple times in inline references. Even when references have not been cited inline, it is possible that they could still be general references. The distinction between general references and further reading is important. According to WP:FURTHER general references are subject to the external links guideline whereas general references are not. This could potentially lead to sources being inappropriately removed for not meeting the WP:ELNO restrictions.

There is no "normal" style for referencing on Wikipedia, multiple styles are acceptable. See WP:CITEVAR and WP:STYLEVAR which proscribe arbitrarily changing acceptable styles. See also WP:FNNR which explicitly allows various section heading names. The style used in the article in question has certain advantages. Where a references is cited multiple times, but to different pages, the full reference need only be entered once in the bibliography and shortened references with the specific page number can be placed inline. It also has the advantage that the bibliography can be sorted alphabetically by author, especially helpful if the list is very long. There is no doubt that this style is accepted at even the highest level of quality scrutiny on Wikipedia; I have written a number of articles using this style that have become Featured Articles and appeared on the main page. For instance, see Mechanical filter. SpinningSpark 10:14, 27 November 2016 (UTC)

I have no problem and accept that you have done a lot of research. Best wishes, and keep up the good work. BeenAroundAWhile (talk) 14:24, 27 November 2016 (UTC)

Marie Lloyd[edit]

Please do not do that again. If you have a problem or seek clarification, either fix it yourself or ask on the talk page, don't just mindlessly tag a featured article. Thank you. CassiantoTalk 05:13, 4 December 2016 (UTC)

@Cassianto: while I agree that Featured Articles should be edited with care, that does not mean they should not be edited at all, or even tagged. In this particular case I think the tag was justified, maybe to the extent that I am considering reinstating it myself. The meaning of the tagged phrase "earned her an extended audience" in the lead isn't clear, it isn't in the body of the article (and is therefore uncited), and the year given (1919) contradicts the year given for perfomance of the song in the body (1918). The editor had raised a valid issue which did not deserve this rather bad-tempered response. SpinningSpark 08:58, 4 December 2016 (UTC)
Have people lost the ability to discuss things anymore? Is that how we communicate now, through tagging? There are 30 people watching the page, some of whom may be qualified to answer such curiosities. I'm confident that this editors question could have been answered more timely if they had've had the common courtesy to start a thread on the talk page rather than tagging questionable text. Again, this is a featured article and deserves a bit more respect. You and BeenAroundForAWhile might think it's OK to deface an FA with unsightly templates but frankly, I don't. CassiantoTalk 15:00, 4 December 2016 (UTC)
It's perfectly normal to tag problems in articles and you should try not to take it so personally. You do not seem to be disputing that there is a problem, and I take it you are not in a position to fix it (presumably you would have done so already if you could) hence the tag is valid and usefully draws the attention of those that might be able to do something about it. It is not always necessary to open a talk page thread if the isssue is obvious. Certainly for a banner template, or where the issue is complex, the tagger should explain him/herself on the talk page, but this case does not seem to call for it. Thirty watchers is actually a very low number, there are more than that watching my user page, and the number who are actually actively reading recent edits is much lower—in single figures. SpinningSpark 16:03, 4 December 2016 (UTC)
Do you think tagging an article is "fixing" the problem, or simply passing it on to someone else? I do not think there is a problem; the text is obvious when it says her audience grew. You say: "It is not always necessary to open a talk page thread if the isssue is obvious." If its that sodding obvious, why can't BeenAroundForAWhile be bold and fix it themselves? I also don't see the similarities between your watchers and ML's watchers? I hate to break it to you, but ML is a featured article about a Victorian stage performer who led a full and prosperous life within the English Music Hall, whereas your page is a user page where you talk about you and only you. Some of the 30 watchers on ML would be people who know about the subject and who have the sources available to fix things, whereas the watchers on your page are formed of people who like participating in forum discussions and small talk. I don't see the parallel. CassiantoTalk 17:15, 4 December 2016 (UTC)
"Mindlessly" is not a nice word, considering all the other words that could be used. I hope you fixed it because I did not understand it. Thanks for your participation in Wikipedia. Sincerely, BeenAroundAWhile (talk) 07:16, 7 December 2016 (UTC)

I thought about it, but felt they were pretty well identified one with the other in St. Louis at the time. The size of the article is about right, and there won't be any new info, although I do have a couple of photos I will be adding. I have no objection to a WP:Request for comment, though, if you are so minded. Sincerely, BeenAroundAWhile (talk) 05:28, 7 January 2017 (UTC)
I actually did split them about a week ago. BeenAroundAWhile (talk) 07:23, 9 March 2017 (UTC)

Thank you for the endorsement.[edit]

I have worked for months to research the page I created and was very discouraged when someone nominated me to be banned immediately when I haven't even put in the in line article citations yet, and worse yet, by someone who apparently is awarded thoroughly.

I don't think anyone on wikipedia knows as much as I do about the page I wrote, otherwise they would have written the article already. I am certainly open to improving the article and plan to get the citations in line within 24 hours. Everything is cited below, but I haven't been to bed yet tonight (now morning) just to get that far. I hope the mods agree with you, the article is worthwile, and I hope I can learn to write better articles because in that field I am well respected subject matter expert and I think I can contribute a lot and improve a large number of existing articles as well.

I feel like, and maybe I'm wrong, the whole point of wikipedia isn't for one person to get everything perfect immediately, but for the community to work together to act as a system of checks and balances to make the best articles possible.

Thanks for the kind words, Klok kaos (talk) 12:32, 18 January 2017 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Thomas Bones[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Thomas Bones has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

This article appears to run into issues with WP:COOKIE. I can imagine that there are thousands of developers. So I can imagine that, unless Mr. Bones developed a significant area or neighborhood, he would not warrant an article.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

West Hills, Los Angeles[edit]

Respectfully the source you provided only speaks to median income for the community and makes no statement as to the affluence of the community. Furthermore there is no consensus supporting adding this almost meaningless objective to any community. Honestly this crusade of yours to add this adjective to various communities pages reeks of POV even borderline vandalism. Raitchison (talk) 02:44, 10 February 2017 (UTC)

Your posting here is rather rude and the actual contents thereof more suited to a Talk page about the article in question. It did not make me feel good. But I guess you knew that it wouldn't. Sincerely, BeenAroundAWhile (talk) 04:00, 10 February 2017 (UTC)
Not only are you adding this to multiple articles, you are re-adding it rather than discussing it. Combine that with this, an RfC that YOU started and which was closed with a concensus NOT to use that set of words, your editing is downright WP:TEND. You need to stop.

@John from Idegon: I have left a note below.
In leaving that note, I was unaware of the RFC (or maybe I did know, but forgot). Given its clear result, BeenAroundAWhile should refrain from adding this info unless there is a consensus to treat a particular article as an exception to that rule.
This is indeed starting to look very tendentious, with a dose of WP:IDHT added. It's the sort of conduct which would likely incur sanctions if it continues. --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 19:35, 2 March 2017 (UTC)

Hi BeenAroundAWhile

Please may I remind you to follow WP:BRD? The usage has been disputed, so take it to to the talk page, and seek a consensus.

Replaceable fair use File:Thomas-D-Shepard-of-Los-Angeles-1962.tiff[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Thomas-D-Shepard-of-Los-Angeles-1962.tiff. I noticed that this file is being used under a claim of fair use. However, I think that the way it is being used fails the first non-free content criterion. This criterion states that files used under claims of fair use may have no free equivalent; in other words, if the file could be adequately covered by a freely-licensed file or by text alone, then it may not be used on Wikipedia. If you believe this file is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the file description page and add the text {{di-replaceable fair use disputed|<your reason>}} below the original replaceable fair use template, replacing <your reason> with a short explanation of why the file is not replaceable.
  2. On the file discussion page, write a full explanation of why you believe the file is not replaceable.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media item by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by creating new media yourself (for example, by taking your own photograph of the subject).

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per the non-free content policy.

Request reason:

I did not add anything. I merely reverted what somebody else had done.

Decline reason:

Right. And that's exactly what was inappropriate (see [3]) and what lead to your block. Yamla (talk) 11:03, 13 July 2017 (UTC)

Wikibullying[edit]

Please refrain from the bullying. Your behavior is unconstructive. I would be happy to discuss any disagreements or changes in process you would like to see but deliberately altering a WP article to make a point is malicious.

I'm sorry, but I don't know what you are talking about. Can you be more specific? It would help if you posted a link to an instance of whatever it is. Your message was quite upsetting to me. Sincerely, BeenAroundAWhile (talk) 18:06, 28 July 2017 (UTC)

Hi. Normally I follow WP:BRD unless I am uncertain. I am an editor, not a scientist, so if there is any Revert I am glad to engage in discussion as you have requested. I hope my edits don't do an injustice to the science. Thank you for your kind attention to the articles I am checking over for good grammar, word usage, and understandability, and I would prefer that any interested person tell me what the problems are on the talk pages of the articles, and they can certainly be corrected in the spirit of amiability. Sincerely, your friend, BeenAroundAWhile (talk) 21:46, 28 August 2017 (UTC)
Your last two changes introduced errors to the article. Please refrain from additional edits until your proposals are acceptable. No more errors in the article, please. --Ancheta Wis   (talk | contribs) 23:43, 28 August 2017 (UTC)

Bill Scott[edit]

A recent edit of mine was reported as vandalism, and I want to clear some things up. Someone had vandalized the page to say Bill Scott had died in 1995, as opposed to 1985 when he actually did. I have included a source to alleviate the confusion and I apologise for any disruption. Bob Greenlake —Preceding undated comment added 18:17, 6 September 2017 (UTC)

That's OK. I was hasty; I simply noticed there was no Edit summary. BeenAroundAWhile (talk) 20:11, 6 September 2017 (UTC)

Logo for Trump 2020 campaign[edit]

Your removal of the image File:TrumpPence20logo.png from Donald Trump presidential campaign, 2020 was for incorrect purposes. While, indeed, it resembles the 2016 campaign logo, it is not the same logo. This is the logo that has been used on the vast majority of the 2020 campaign's materials as so far, thus it is to be considered their current logo until a new one is released. SecretName101 (talk) 00:05, 7 September 2017 (UTC)

"Incorrect purposes"? I am sure you mistyped. How do you know my purpose, other than because I thought it was not a correct logo? Surely you have read WP:Assume good faith, have you not? Sincerely, your friend, BeenAroundAWhile (talk) 05:58, 7 September 2017 (UTC)

Pantomime[edit]

Philip Cone Fletcher moved to draftspace[edit]

An article you recently created, Philip Cone Fletcher, does not have enough sources and citations as written to remain published. It needs more citations from reliable, independent sources. (?)

I've moved your draft to draftspace (with a prefix of "Draft:" before the article title) where you can incubate the article with minimal disruption.

Playa Vista, Los Angeles[edit]

Hi there..

A vandal by the name of Non3up keeps deleting content from various pages. Playa Vista, Los Angeles is one of them. Then, if you look at Playa del Rey, Los Angeles ‎and Ramón Nomar.

Can you report him. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 101.178.163.208 (talk) 02:46, 30 April 2018 (UTC)

101.178.163.208 It's not vandalism if I reverted a few of your edits due to them being unconstructive and asked you to explain them on the talk page. You added new content to an article yet got reverted thus is natural that you follow WP:BOLD. You refused to use the talk page many times, I think you should start making use of it. (N0n3up (talk) 13:22, 30 April 2018 (UTC))
Non3up, it's natural that you take it to talk. Just because you don't feel comfortable with it, doesn't mean that I or User:Beenaroundawhile should not edit the page. Learn to assume good faith. Beenaroundawhile, once again thanks for your help.101.178.163.208 (talk) 05:11, 1 May 2018 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Sketch by Marguerite Martyn of actress Effie Elsler, 1919.jpg[edit]

A tag has been placed on File:Sketch by Marguerite Martyn of actress Effie Elsler, 1919.jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the image is an unused duplicate or lower-quality copy of another file on Wikipedia having the same file format, and all inward links have been updated.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be deleted without delay.

Census[edit]

Hello! I saw your message a while back. That is interesting in regard to the possible rewording of "spread out". I think a huge consensus would need to be met before anyone or a bot undergoes such a huge task. Hope this finds you well. Red Director (talk) 02:45, 20 May 2018 (UTC)

Yes, thank you. I try to be helpful. I am not sure what form a "huge consensus" might take. In fact, I am not sure how that boilerplate text was derived in the first place. I am not exercised enough about its faults to tackle any kind of editing as you did. By the way, did you get consensus for that minor change? Just wondering about the procedure. Sincerely, from a guy who's BeenAroundAWhile (talk) 07:14, 20 May 2018 (UTC)
It was just some things that I saw could use some consistency. One sentence having the structure of one way following but a sentence that was different but laid out in almost the same way. I started out doing just a few of them. When I got only "thanks" actions/positive messages about it, I kept going and finished up the task. It seemed to be met with positivity. I won't be doing any huge task like that again for a while though. Red Director (talk) 14:13, 20 May 2018 (UTC)

Disputed non-free use rationale for File:Los Angeles Daily News logo March 17 1934.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Los Angeles Daily News logo March 17 1934.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this file on Wikipedia may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content. This can be corrected by going to the file description page and adding or clarifying the reason why the file qualifies under this policy. Adding and completing one of the templates available from Wikipedia:Non-free use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your file is in compliance with Wikipedia policy. Please be aware that a non-free use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for files used under the non-free content policy require both a copyright tag and a non-free use rationale.

If it is determined that the file does not qualify under the non-free content policy, it might be deleted by an administrator seven days after the file was tagged in accordance with section F7 of the criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions, please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you.

File:Newspaper publisher John W. Wheeler.jpg[edit]

Hi, I'm RonBot, a script that checks new non-free file uploads. I have found that the subject image that you recently uploaded was more than 5% in excess of the Non-free content guideline size of 100,000 pixels. I have tagged the image for a standard reduction, which (for jpg/gif/png/svg files) normally happens within a day. Please check the reduced image, and make sure that the image is not excessively corrupted. Other files will be added to Category:Wikipedia non-free file size reduction requests for manual processing. There is a full seven-day period before the original oversized image will be hidden; during that time you might want to consider editing the original image yourself (perhaps an initial crop to allow a smaller reduction or none at all). A formula for calculation the desired size can be found at WP:Image resolution, along with instructions on how to tag the image in the rare cases that it requires an oversized image (typically about 0.2% of non-free uploads are tagged as necessarily oversized). Please contact the bot owner if you have any questions, or you can ask them at Wikipedia talk:Non-free content. RonBot (talk) 17:19, 11 August 2018 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Newspaper publisher John W. Wheeler.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Newspaper publisher John W. Wheeler.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in section F5 of the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. --B-bot (talk) 17:30, 13 August 2018 (UTC)

List of notable people photographed by Takuma Kajiwara[edit]

Hi, just wondering if there is a reason you split this list out of the Takuma Kajiwara article? That article isn't too long, which would be the normal reason to split. Perhaps there is something about his photogrpahs of these people that makes them more notable than the photographer, hence justfying an article all to themseleves?--Pontificalibus 18:00, 11 September 2018 (UTC)

I don't mind if you combine the two again. You have a good point. I split them because the original gallery was way too long, encompassing as it did every single Kajiwara photo that could be found. That's not the purpose of WP. There is discussion in the Talk page over there. If you want to put a smaller gallery into the main article, limited to Notable people, just mention it on that Talk page so there is a record. Thanks so much!

Information icon Welcome to Wikipedia. Please do not remove Articles for deletion notices from articles, or remove other people's comments in Articles for deletion debates, as you did with Hong Kong Trams Station. Otherwise, it may be difficult to create consensus. If you oppose the deletion of an article, please comment at the respective page instead. Thank you. Matthew_hk tc 03:21, 28 September 2018 (UTC)

Sorry. I guess I misread the instructions. Oh, thank you very much, but there is no need to welcome me because I have BeenAroundAWhile (talk) 03:36, 28 September 2018 (UTC)

your question.[edit]

you can find them at the 2010 census references. Every edit has a summary. Carlossuarez46 (talk) 19:15, 30 September 2018 (UTC)

Hello, again. Your Edit summaries don't give the full story. Why are you making all these petty changes without any discussion? They are all breaking the flow of the sentences without any necessity for them anyway. Please stop for a while & get WP:Consensus as to whether they should be done at all. Thank you. Yours, BeenAroundAWhile (talk) 19:21, 30 September 2018 (UTC)
  • You're being obstructionist. If you look at the percentages they are based on occupied housing units, but that figure is not in the demographics. I will stop. Please start the process of more eyes on these edits, I will flag the talk page that pointed out the error. I expect YOU to fix the rest since you think I shouldn't. Carlossuarez46 (talk) 19:28, 30 September 2018 (UTC)
  • By the way, I've gotten as far as Inyo county, please start after that. Carlossuarez46 (talk) 19:32, 30 September 2018 (UTC)
Hi. Thanks. I am hurt by your word "obstructionist." I don't know why you would take it upon yourself to make all those changes, but I suppose you thought you were doing the right thing. Where would you suggest a dialogue on this matter be carried out? Your friend, BeenAroundAWhile (talk) 19:37, 30 September 2018 (UTC)

Todd Starnes Profile[edit]

Hi BeenAroundAWhile, thank you for your note!

We reviewed more than once what's currently on Todd's page. We are trying to NOT make any changes in the sections that have been previously added (contributed) by others on this page, despite some editing and factual errors there.

We only added a list of accomplishment with the respective references from reputable sources, linking directly (hyperlink) on their Wikipedia page and sourcing it with the respective LIVE factual pages on internet. Our intention is to contribute and make this page as factual as possible.

I would really appreciate if you could review and reconsider the following additions to this profile, which only aim is to add factual data. Again without detracting any previous inputs/contributions. Note: in each of the sections below, we have all external sources and urls to everything we quote:

Lecture circuit Starnes regularly gives speeches at political gatherings, such as the Heritage Foundation, Young America’s Foundation, Reagan Ranch Center, Values Voter Summit and the Faith and Freedom Coalition. He has also spoken at The Billy Graham Library and The Billy Graham Training Center at The Cove. Starnes has also delivered speeches at a number of Christian universities and colleges - including Liberty University, California Baptist University, the Master’s College, West Coast Baptist College and North Greenville University. He has delivered commencement addresses at Toccoa Falls College and Truett McConnell University. In 2016 Starnes was selected to deliver the Ray Newman Ethics and Religious Liberty Lecture at Truett McConnell University. In 2018 he was a guest speaker at the Spiritual Leadership Conference in Lancaster, California. Starnes has also spoken in a number of churches across the nation including the Bayside Church in Sacramento, First Baptist Church in Dallas, Prestonwood Baptist Church in Plano, Texas, First Baptist Church of Jacksonville, Florida, Skyline Church in San Diego, Lancaster Baptist Church in Lancaster, California, and First Baptist Church Atlanta.

He has been a regular featured speaker at the annual meeting of the National Religious Broadcasters. In 2017 Starnes conducted an interview with Dr. James Dobson to commemorate his 40 years of broadcast ministry. Starnes has also been a regular speaker at the Watchmen on the Wall Conference in Washington, D.C. In 2016 Starnes was featured as a keynote speaker along with Michelle Malkin and Dinesh D’Souza at the Oregon Liberty Alliance Freedom Rally in Portland.

Awards & Honors Starnes is the recipient of an Associated Press Mark Twain Award for Storytelling. He is also the winner of a regional Edward R. Murrow Award by the Radio and Television News Directors Association. The National Religious Broadcasters honored Starnes with its Board of Directors Award. First Liberty Institute’s “Defender of the Faith” award, Vision America’s “National Hero of the Faith” award, Bott Radio Network’s “Watchman on the Wall” award and Pacific Justice Institute’s “Light in Media” award. In 2017 Starnes was inducted into the Roaring Lamb’s Hall of Fame - an honor also bestowed upon Lt. Col. Oliver North, John Wooden, and S. Truett Cathy.

Radio Station Events Starnes frequently makes appearance at radio station events around the nation. In 2017 he launched his “Deplorables Guide to Making America Great Again” Tour in St. Louis at KFTK. Several hundred listeners attended the book signing. He was also the keynote speaker at a sold-out event at the Uptown Theater in Wichita, Kansas hosted by KNSS Radio and Bott Radio Network. In 2013 Starnes was the guest speaker at KPEL Radio’s “Night of Conversation.” That same year he headlined with Ann Coulter at WOWO’s town hall gathering in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Starnes typically arranges his book tours to include stops in cities where his radio show and commentaries are broadcast. Among the stations he’s visited are KOA in Denver, KFBK in Sacramento, WREC in Memphis, WERC in Birmingham, WOAI in San Antonio, KTRH in Houston and WDUN in Gainesville, Georgia.

Fox News & Commentary In 2011 Kevin Magee, the senior Vice President for Fox News Radio, asked Starnes to consider writing and hosting three daily short form features for Fox News Radio. The one-minute commentaries were the brainchild of Hank Weinbloom, Fox News Radio’s managing editor. The idea was to broadcast items of national interest covering news, politics, and entertainment - with a dose of humor and satire. The commentaries were launched on a handful of radio stations on November 11, 2007 and quickly become one of the largest radio commentaries in the nation. Today, more than 520 radio stations broadcast the daily commentaries including WOAI - San Antonio, WREC - Memphis, KUFO - Portland, Oregon, KRMG - Tulsa, Oklahoma, KPRC - Houston, WIBC - Indianapolis, KFTK - St. Louis, KNSS - Wichita and KPEL - Lafayette, Louisiana. American Family Radio and Bott Radio Network also broadcast the daily commentaries. A number of radio broadcasters and listeners have compared Todd’s commentaries and broadcasting style to the late Paul Harvey. Tony Duesing, the program director at KNSS said, “Todd’s commentaries resonate with our radio listeners, what Todd says matters to them. He’s not just reporting on a news story, but going beyond that to pull emotional strings. Very similar to what the late Paul Harvey would do with his listeners.”

Thank you again for your attention,
