August Esperanza Newsletter[edit]

Program Feature: To-Do List
The Esperanza To-Do List is a place where you may list any request, big or small, for assistance. If you need help with archiving your usertalk, for example, all you need to do is list it here and somebody will help you out. Likewise, if you need help with some area of editing on Wikipedia, list it here! Again, any matter, trivial or not, can be placed on this page. However, all matters listed on this page must not be of an argumentative nature. You do not need to be a member of Esperanza (or this program) to place or fulfill requests on this page. If you don't have any requests, consider coming by and fulfilling a few! This program has not been very active, but has lots of potential!
What's New?
In order to help proposed programs become specific enough to make into full-fledged programs, the In development section of the proposals page has been created. Proposals that are promising, but need to be organized in more detail are listed here. Please take a look at what is there, and help the proposals turn into programs.
To improve both the layout and text of the front page, in an attempt to clarify the image of Esperanza, the front page is going to have some redesigning take place. Please take your creative minds to Wikipedia:Esperanza/Front page redesign to brainstorm good ideas.
Many thanks to MiszaBot, courtesy of Misza13, for delivering the newsletter.
  1. In order to make sure all users who join Esperanza are welcomed, a list of volunteers who are willing to welcome new Esperanzians is at Wikipedia:Esperanza/Members#Esperanza_welcomers. Please add yourself if you are interested; we want to make sure all new Esperanza members are welcomed!
  2. The In development section of the proposals page has been created.
  3. Proposals page: Some proposals have been moved to the aforementioned "In development" section, some have been left as a proposal, and others have been archived. For those proposals that were a good idea but didn't necessarily constitute a program, General Esperanzial Actions has been created.
  4. Two small pieces of charter reform will be decided on in a straw poll at Wikipedia talk:Esperanza/Governance. One involves filling the position of any councillors who may leave, the other involves reforming the charter.
  5. Until cooperation with the Kindness Campaign is better defined, it remains as a proposed program.
  6. There is a page for discussing the front page redesign.

Date links[edit]

I've reverted your removal of all the date links in the articles on the Australian premiers and chief ministers. Why the newfound interest in this? Surely there's more useful things you could be doing. Rebecca 09:19, 15 August 2006 (UTC)

Harro5 was correct in removing links from isolated years, as stated in the dates section of the MOS:
Not every year listed in an article needs to be wikilinked. Ask yourself: will clicking on the year bring any useful information to the reader?
The widespread practice is not to have a plethora of links as in this example, so these need to be reverted again. Thanks. Tyrenius 03:46, 17 August 2006 (UTC)
No, they don't. The MOS requires that some thought and discretion be used if removing links, which is incompatible with using an automated script, and some perfectly useful links were removed. I didn't particularly want to push this, but the above is simply wrong. Rebecca 04:18, 17 August 2006 (UTC)

The problem is that years are usually linked in the first place because of a misunderstanding that that is the correct thing to do, when it isn't, so it is not in the same category as removing other links, which have been inserted purposefully in the first place. In the example I cited above, I can't see any pressing need for those years to be linked, and it appears to have been done in a mechanical fashion, so the removal was helpful. Have I missed anything here? Tyrenius 04:26, 17 August 2006 (UTC)

Tyrenius is misrepresenting the MOS to suggest that it still claims something that was specifically removed by general consensus; namely, that it authorises people to go around mass-killing date links on principle. We had a very lengthy discussion on this matter, involving many people, and the general consensus was that links should be judged on their merits. This is why the MOS gives absolutely no guidance as to removing date links. Both formats are fine, but I reserve the right to revert when someone makes it their business to go around shooting all on sight. Rebecca 04:31, 17 August 2006 (UTC)

This conversation continues on my talk page and Rebecca's talk page. You may have something to contribute to this. Tyrenius 17:12, 17 August 2006 (UTC)

Please stop. You're capable of doing some really good work, yet this really isn't helpful. Moreover, there are no grounds under the MOS to go around killing each and every date link, and if you continue to do so by automated means I'll begin rollbacking all of them on sight. Rebecca 09:31, 22 August 2006 (UTC)

I understand that this script pauses so that any links to be removed can be reviewed. It seems to me that this is the key point, namely does Harro5 at this stage assess each date link on its individual merit before then deleting? If he does, then he fulfils the requirements. Perhaps he could make a statement on this. If indeed every time all year links are removed, perhaps he could also explain why this is so, and why he has judged none to be worth retaining.

The relevant section in Manual of style (dates and numbers) states:

There is consensus among editors that bare month and day names should not be linked unless there is a specific reason that the link will help the reader to understand the article. There is less agreement about links to years. Some editors believe that links to years are generally useful to establish context for the article. Others believe that links to years are rarely useful to the reader and reduce the readability of the text. Another possibility is to link to a more specific article about that year, for example [[2006 in sports|2006]], although some people find this unintuitive because the link leads to an unexpected destination.

Obviously there is a clash of philosophy on this which has not been resolved, and I wonder if this is at the heart of the current dispute.

Tyrenius 21:36, 22 August 2006 (UTC)

George Allen[edit]

Harro5, I do not appreciate you removing my edits. It was all factual, verifiable material, something you would have found out had you clicked on the links. George Allen did indeed play a role in Gods and Generals as a confederate officer. I do not consider this "nonsense". I consider it fact. It may be humorous, but it happened and is part of George Allen's life.


Just Wondering[edit]

I was wondering if all admins have a green letter in their username? Fra 011 011 08:34, 5 September 2006 (UTC)

O.K. Thanks. Fra 011 011 09:03, 5 September 2006 (UTC)

Your edit of "Zeta Psi"[edit]

No need for a mop here, just simple curiosity. I noticed you added a line to the Zeta Psi article noting that "Zeta Psi is also rumored to be one of the most secretive fraternities in the nation." I don't disagree with you, but it seems like this is the sort of statement which it would be beneficial to source. Where did you form this impression? If it's an article or the like, a reference to it would be helpful. Citizen Sunshine 21:31, 5 September 2006 (UTC)

  • The edit or mine is not the one you're interested in. Sorry. Harro5 06:06, 7 September 2006 (UTC)

A-League Newsletter II, 2006[edit]

WikiProject A-League Newsletter
Issue II – September 2006
Current Player project status
10% complete
A-League News


Project News
  • The Player project has been moved, overhauled and refined. It now is not limited to the 2005-06 player list. However, only 10% of articles are considered "complete", and hopefully we can get this figure to approach 100% by the end of the season.
  • Major changes to the layout of the 2006-07 A-League season page have taken place recently, and an infobox created. A table for attendances, as well as top scorer etc. are now in place. All users are encouraged to update the scores for completed matches as they come in.
  • Recently, Perth Glory F.C. was moved to Perth Glory FC after no objections were raised at the Wikiproject talk page. All links to the old page (including various templates) were changed.
  • The project requires pictures of games and stadiums to help improve articles. Any pictures are much appreciated.
  • The A-League Portal has been set up. Feel free to update the scores, and make sure you check out the selected article and picture each fortnight.
  • The football (soccer) barnstar has recently became the official award of the Wikiproject. Feel free to hand it out to anyone you see making excellent contributions to all things A-League related.

S&P: an international reaction or a financial market reaction?[edit]

You moved S&P's warning that it might downgrade Thailand's debt rating from the Financial Market Reaction section to the International Reaction section. Are you sure that's appropriate. It seems weird to see S&P right there along with the US, UN, EU, etc. S&P is at most a financial institution, and I believe its warning should belong in the Financial section. Patiwat 05:19, 20 September 2006 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Bindi Irwin[edit]

I have restored the history of the article and a redirect to Steve Irwin (without prejudice to a new article about her), because its former deletion discussion only resulted in deletion because the article was created by a banned user. (Per WP:CSD, re-creation of a speedily deleted article is not a speedy deletion candidate, unless it meets the criteria on its own. If you believe that a new discussion on the merit of the article is warranted, you may re-nominate it for deletion using the template {{Afdx}}.) - Mike Rosoft 10:34, 20 September 2006 (UTC)

September Esperanza Newsletter[edit]

Program Feature: Barnstar Brigade
Here in Wikipedia there are hundreds of wikipedians whose work and efforts go unappreciated. One occasionally comes across editors who have thousands of good edits, but because they may not get around as much as others, their contributions and hard work often go unnoticed. As Esperanzians we can help to make people feel appreciated, be it by some kind words or the awarding of a Barnstar. This is where the Barnstar Brigade comes in. The object of this program is to seek out the people which deserve a Barnstar, and help them feel appreciated. With your help, we can recognize more dedicated editors!
What's New?
September elections are upon us! Anyone wishing to be a part of the Advisory Council may list themselves as a candidate from 18 September until 24 September, with the voting taking place from 25 September to 30 September. Those who wish to help with the election staff should also list themselves!
Appreciation Week, a program currently in development, now has its own subpage! Share your good ideas on how to make it awesome there!
The Esperanza front page has been redesigned! Many thanks to all who worked hard on it.
Many thanks to MiszaBot, courtesy of Misza13, for delivering the newsletter.
  1. The proposals page has been updated, with some proposals being archived.
  2. Since the program in development Appretiaion week is getting lots of good ideas, it now has its own subpage.
  3. The September 2006 Council elections will open for nominations on 18 September 2006. The voting will run from 25 September 2006 until 30 September 2006. If you wish to be a candidate or a member of the elections staff, please list yourself!
  4. The new Esperanza front page design has but put up - many thanks to all who worked on it!
  5. TangoTango has written a script for a bot that will list new members of Esperanza, which will help those who welcome new Esperanzains greatly!

In case you hadn't seen it, the affair continues on User talk:Rebecca. Tyrenius 21:53, 21 September 2006 (UTC)

Help![edit]

This user, User:Abu badali, keeps on trying to delete fair use images that I've uploaded, especially Image:Allison Mack1.jpg and Image:Kristinkreuk1.jpg. I have gotten permission from the websites owners to use these images, and I have written a detailed fair use rationale for both of them, and they both have the fair use tag on them. Even after a lengthy discussion, he still will not accept that they are fair use and he keeps trying to delete them! Loooking at his talk page and his contributions, he seems to think that he is the highest authority on all things "fair use", but he obviously is not. Can you please help me, or get some other administrators to help me, convince him that they are in fact fair use images and should not be deleted? It would be greatly appreciated, and he must be stopped before he lists every single fair use image for deletion. Thank you. - Ivan Kricancic 03:34, 22 September 2006 (UTC)

Thank You for your kind words[edit]

I think I will make another sweep and then start working on sourcing and rewrite. Thanks for what you have also done in that regard. Jasper23 14:30, 27 September 2006 (UTC)

Fox Glacier image[edit]

Good afternoon,

We are a film team making a documentary on conservation for New Zealand's Te Papa Museum. We were struck by your photo of the Fox Glacier and wondered if you would mind our using the image in our film, which will be used for distribution free of charge to schools in New Zealand. While we cannot unfortunately provide payment, we would of course provide you with credit in the finished work. If you have any questions or would like to discuss this further please do not hesitate to contact me at tom @ filmdottom.com.

Sincerely,

User page[edit]

Thanks for Your help.As a new user, I'm facing new problems continually.Is there any possible way to design my user page and talk page(e.g. background color,special characters,Colored box but not user box etc)? I tried to search about this topic in help page and got a topic named style user. But still I'm confused to design my user page. How can I design userpage and add wikibreak or other ad/image in talk page?

Another thing is about table. I must have to put something after {{infobox .... If I want to make a statistical table based on University,School,Film or biography. But how can I realize that it should be University , Film and biography after the {{infobox .... ?? Will it depend on my article or wikipedia software automatically recognize it. Where can I get those ({{infobox ...) words?? I've already created an article where I put the word "University" ({{infobox University) from my own prediction.But I'm confused about other statistical table.Is there any certain keywordlist for creating({{infobox keyword) those statistical tables. Plz Help. .....Thank you NAHID 23:21, 3 October 2006 (UTC)

About blocking 203.94.129.158[edit]

I can see you blocked this IP because it was a vandal. The only problem about it is that I need to use this IP sometimes, as it is the IP for Caufield Grammar School, Caufield Campus. Is there a way I can still edit Wikipedia while this IP is still blocked? (i.e. Keep IP blocked, but logged in users can still edit using it). This will be greatly apprieciated if you find a way. --AAA! 10:48, 17 October 2006 (UTC)


Expansion of WP:A-League[edit]

Hi Harro5/Archive6,

Just thought I'd let you know there is currently a proposal to expand WikiProject A-League to include all areas of football/soccer in Australia, including the NSL, A-League, Socceroos, state leagues and more. A more formal proposal page can be found here. Please indicate whether you support the idea or not at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject A-League, and also add your 2c about what the new project should be called. Cheers! – AlbinoMonkey (Talk) 04:11, 19 October 2006 (UTC)

Date links[edit]

Please stop. You're now the only editor on Wikipedia systematically removing date links, and it really is quite inflammatory. It isn't sanctioned by any policy, and there's just no need to do it. Rebecca 02:45, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

We had a very long discussion about it in the archives of WP:DATE, and while no substantive conclusion was reached, it was agreed that removing date links en masse was unacceptable, and that advice was subsequently removed from the MOS. Consequently, Bobblewik and the other users who were mass-delinking have ceased to do so (in Bobblewik's case under the threat of a community ban, the others voluntarily). The latest feedback on Bobblewik's talk pages gives a fairly good summary of current community opinion about this sort of thing. Rebecca 05:17, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

According to the Wikipedia:Manual_of_Style_(dates_and_numbers)#Partial_dates the edits Harro5 is making are perfectly acceptable. David D. (Talk) 06:50, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

For the beginning of the discussion see Wikipedia talk:Manual of Style (dates and numbers)/archive42. It continues on through multiple archives and as far as i can remember no consensus was reached. Certainly no ban on the type of edits you have been doing. David D. (Talk) 06:57, 23 October 2006 (UTC)
No, they are not. As with all the other forms of these issues, such as date formats and BC/BCE, incessant mass-changing in the face of opposition is really controversial, which is why every single other person (to my knowledge) who was mass-delinking has stopped, and several people who support date delinking were among those asking Bobblewik to quit it. They are not sanctioned by the current MOS - the advice which people used to rely on having been taken out as a result of general consensus. Really, there's no need to be causing such continuing antagonism, and you're capable of doing really good work, so why continue to try and force the issue? If you must, try and get a consensus for your changes. Rebecca 23:52, 23 October 2006 (UTC)
The manual of style is very specific. "So when considering whether such a date should be linked or not, editors should take into account the usual considerations about links, including the recommendations of Wikipedia:Only make links that are relevant to the context." How were Harro5's edits not following this recommendation? You claim mass delinking. If that was so there would be no linked date left in the article. This was not so. We are probably at the polar extremes of this debate, so I am willing to give and take, and certainly do not seek to rock the boat. However, you are harrassing a user over an issue that is not cut and dry. David D. (Talk) 00:21, 24 October 2006 (UTC)
Also i do not regard my stance as some continuing antagonism. I have not been involved in this debate for a long time and have not been actively delinking dates, although I do when i see them over linked. I happened to notice your own aggressive revert and your own antagonistic reply here (it really is quite inflammatory). That I responded makes me the overly forward one here? David D. (Talk) 03:42, 24 October 2006 (UTC)

Barack Obama[edit]

Thank you for your revert to Barack Obama. As a relatively new user, I could tell that the edits were not going to stand, but didn't know how to deal with it. Thanks again! Stealthound 07:20, 3 November 2006 (UTC)

It's not su much that I am trying to remove a personal attack, it's just that I've seen how quickly talk pages can degenerate when people make off topic posts. I removed Jasper's posts because they had nothing to do with the debate about how to improve the article & it's my understanding that talk pages are reserved for discussing the article, not the behavior of individual editors. Timelist 23:26, 3 November 2006 (UTC)

Thank You[edit]

For stepping in. I will of course follow your advice. I will voluntarily take at least a 24 hour break from all edits on that page to let it cool down. Thanks again. Jasper23 23:32, 3 November 2006 (UTC)

Image:Rickwarren.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Rickwarren.jpg. I notice the 'image' page specifies that the image is being used under fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first fair use criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed image could reasonably be found or created. If you believe this image is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the image description page and edit it to add {{Replaceable fair use disputed}}
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our fair use criteria. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that any fair use images which are replaceable by free-licensed alternatives will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. -- Chowbok 20:11, 5 November 2006 (UTC)

Hi, I deleted and protected Barnard jokes which I note you also deleted. Unusually, the creator is arguing against this, and states that it is a valid article. Whilst I'm not convinced, you might like to see the article talk page to see if you're minded to remove the protection -I'll go along with whatever you decide. jimfbleak 07:20, 7 November 2006 (UTC)

November Esperanza Newsletter[edit]

Program Feature: Admin Coaching (needs coaches!)
Admin Coaching needs coaches!!! If you are an administrator, or even a generally experienced user, do consider signing up to be a coach.

Admin Coaching, now being coordinated by HighwayCello, is a program for people who want help learning some of the more subtle aspects of Wikipedia policy and culture. People are matched with experienced users who are willing to offer coaching. The program is designed for people who have figured out the basics of editing articles; they're not newcomers any more, but they might want some help in learning new roles. In this way, Esperanza would help keep hope alive for Wikipedia because we would always be grooming the next generation of admins.

What's New?
The Tutorial Drive is a new Esperanza program! In an effort to make complicated processes on Wikipedia easier for everyone, Esperanza working to create and compile a list of tutorials about processes here on Wikipedia. Consider writing one!
A discussion on how Esperanza relates to the encyclopedia has been started; please add your thoughts.
Many thanks to MiszaBot, courtesy of Misza13, for delivering the newsletter.
  • The list of proposed programs has been updated, with some proposals being archived.
  • There is now a new program: the Tutorial Drive! Consider writing a tutorial on something you are good at doing on Wikipedia.
  • The suggestion of adding a cohesive look to all the Esperanza pages is being considered; join the discussion if you are interested!
  • In order to make a useful interlanguage welcome template, those involved in translation projects will be asked what English Wikipedia policies are most important and confusing to editors coming from other language Wikipedias.
  • A discussion of Esperanza's role in Wikipedia is being held, with all thoughts of all Esperanzians wanted!
  • Shreshth91 informed everyone that he will be leaving the Esperanza council as life is rather busy; his spot will be filled by the runner up from the last election, HighwayCello.

AIFS's Academic Year In America deletion[edit]

I am interested to learn more as to why the article I created, AIFS's Academic Year In America, was deleted. Your comments seemed to indicate its noteability. The article is no more or less noteable than several similar pages of similar organizations listed at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Student_exchange . It was my intent to add further content to this article consistent with the others. Please advise.

Substituting templates[edit]

Hi, there -- please don't substitute templates like {{wikify}} and {{nocats}} as you did at Yang Huanming -- just leave the template intact so that it's easier to work around. Thanks. Dylan 02:39, 28 November 2006 (UTC)

Philanthropist[edit]

I've added the "{{prod}}" template to the article Philanthropist, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but I don't believe it satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and I've explained why in the deletion notice (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). Please either work to improve the article if the topic is worthy of inclusion in Wikipedia, or, if you disagree with the notice, discuss the issues at Talk:Philanthropist. You may remove the deletion notice, and the article will not be deleted, but note that it may still be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached, or if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria. — Sebastian (talk) 03:48, 8 December 2006 (UTC)

Piner-Olivet Charter School had been {{prod}} tagged as it had become a repository for student commentary, etc. It has been {{tone}} tagged. I attempted some cleanup and left a note on the talk page (WP:Verify and WP:NOT). However, I think this page bears watching by those interested in school articles. Since you are the School portal founder, I thought you might be the best person to contact. I'm also posting to the WikiProject. — ERcheck (talk) 01:26, 22 January 2007 (UTC)

About your block on 203.94.129.158[edit]

I think you should unblock this IP, because the blocking policy states that infinite blocks on IPs should not be done unless they're open proxies. Not only that, it's a school IP, and the template on the talk page at the top says that school IPs can only be blocked for up to 6 months. And it's been blocked for some time now, so I think they've learned their lesson. --AAA! (AAAA) 03:48, 23 February 2007 (UTC)

I have changed the schools portal recently, and added a picture and article to the schools portal, on Aquinas College, Perth a recently promoted GA.

Fifth Melbourne meetup[edit]

The fifth meetup of Melbourne Wikipedians is being planned as a breakfast meeting in the city with Jimbo Wales (at a venue to be arranged) on Friday, 27 April 2007.

Jimbo has proposed breakfast as the one real window of opportunity during his tightly scheduled stay in Melbourne. Tbe precise time has to be sorted out with Jimbo, but the arrangements for the equivalent Adelaide meetup a few days before may give a good idea.

Feel free to edit the relevant page in any way that might be helpful. I feel like a bit of an interloper, not having attended previous meetups. If there's anything you can do to help, I'll be grateful. Please think about whether you'll be able to make it, assuming the arrangements are similar to those Adelaide is adopting (i.e. a block of time with people being fairly free to arrive when it suits them). Some indication on the page of your possible participation would be really helpful. Metamagician3000 06:28, 29 March 2007 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image (Image:Auskick.gif)[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Auskick.gif. 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 orphaned, meaning that it is 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).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BetacommandBot 06:28, 29 June 2007 (UTC)

Redirect of Parson consulting[edit]

Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on Parson consulting, by another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. The tag claims that it should be speedily deleted because Parson consulting is a redirect to a non-existent page (CSD R1).

If the article has already been deleted, see the advice and instructions at WP:WMD.

Re: Caulfield Grammar School[edit]

While the citation issue I would say has been largely addressed, the writing still needs work. For example, "In 1961 Caulfield became affiliated with Malvern Memorial Grammar School, which became the school's Malvern House in 1971, a primary school located in the Valentine's Mansion, and its students began to wear the Caulfield Grammar School uniform." It's a bit of a mouthful. LuciferMorgan (talk) 22:46, 24 December 2007 (UTC)

Disputed fair use rationale for Image:Caulfield logo.gif[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Caulfield logo.gif. However, there is a concern that the rationale you have provided for using this image under "fair use" may be invalid. Please read the instructions at Wikipedia:Non-free content carefully, then go to the image description page and clarify why you think the image qualifies for fair use. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template.

If you have any questions please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot (talk) 20:58, 13 February 2008 (UTC)

Rekha Luther[edit]

Nuvola apps important yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Rekha Luther, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page. Also, please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached. If you agree with the deletion of the article, and you are the only person who has made substantial edits to the page, please add {{db-author}} to the top of Rekha Luther. B.

Harro5,

I have tried a number of times to remove Julian Moti from notable faculty of Bond Uni, and see that you keep reinstating it. I am trying to remove it because it is INCORRECT. Julian Moti was never employed by Bond University, and was not a teaching Faculty member. He had the honorary title of Adjunct professor, from which he resigned from on Friday 22 September 2007.

Tania Zaetta[edit]

Hi Harro5. I have removed your recent addition to the Tania Zaetta article. I believe the content breaches the letter and the spirit of Wikipedia policy, specifically Wikipedia:Biographies of living persons. The whole "story" at this stage is unsourced speculation denied by all parties and inclusion breaches the "do no harm" principle in the BLP policy. Happy to discuss this further should you wish but I will continue to remove any and all content on this issue. Regards, Mattinbgn\talk 04:15, 22 May 2008 (UTC)

I take your point about the media attention as being factual (i.e. there is media attention on this issue and an inquiry is being held) however my point is that we should not add to the indignity that the subject of this article must be feeling at present. Her privacy has been horribly breached by the government and we should not be adding to the offence. Over and above any legal concerns, I believe strongly we have a moral duty to "do no harm" and repeating innuendo and rumour, even in the form of discussing the fact of allegations, reports etc, I believe adds to the initial offence. I know there was no malicious intent in your addition, I just didn't see it as appropriate in the circumstances. Finally, on your point about allegations being important, this is a bit like the old chestnut of asking someone "When did you stop beating your wife?" and when a denial is issued then reporting "Man denies beating wife". The allegation is what causes the harm and reporting the denial only adds to it. Sorry for the long-winded explanation but BLP is a bit of a hobby-horse for me. If anything will kill the project, our treatment of living people will. Cheers and thanks for your understanding, Mattinbgn\talk 07:46, 22 May 2008 (UTC)

Hi Harro5, could you give me an idea of what would need to be included to satisfy the notability guidelines with my MyMedia article? I'm quite new at this so please bare with me. It's my understanding the company attracts a fair audience if that's the sort of thing that is required to be stated, though I may have just missed the point completely :) I also hope this is the right place to be asking this, pardon me if I'm wrong here. Cheers Subhoob490 (talk) 02:16, 1 September 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for the quick response, so it's basically that there has been no secondary independent sources stated correct that warrant it's notability?

Hi Harro5, thanks for that, I think I understand it all now. If I want to put up a revision that I think better follows those guidelines, is there anything I should do before putting it up or should I just do so and see if it passes? Cheers Subhoob490 (talk) 02:35, 1 September 2008 (UTC)

How does this page not meet noteriaty? the following groups have less substance than my entry and yet they exist. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alarm_Clock_Theatre_Company Furious Theatre Company Everyman Theatre, Baltimore The Bad Dog Theatre Company Marin Theatre Company and many others, If they meet the inclusion criteria than so does my entry, if no than I propose that they are all deleted. Thank you Streetdoc270 (talk) 17:02, 1 September 2008 (UTC)

disclosure: I helped Streetdoc write the article. Harro5, you said "Doesn't indicate importance or significance of a group/company/etc." What does it need to show significance? numbers of shows? More sources? Awards won? The article as written and the references provided show the subject to be a long-lasting (20 years +)regional theater group that regularly produces plays. It is clearly significant in the region. Is this any less significant than a local school or historic event? Both of these have WP articles that are more poorly sourced.

Wesley College, Melbourne[edit]

I appreciate your edits and comments in recent days. Particularly in light of the current GA review, it's been helpful to have your input which I think has helped in sharpening the content. Although perhaps a little way to go... Cheers Murtoa (talk) 23:31, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

User_talk:Canadasprincess#September_2008[edit]

Don't you think that indef is a bit severe? This user has less that 15 edits. And on top of that, you were involved in this dispute. You should not be blocking people you are in dispute with. I'm very inclined to shorten this block. RlevseTalk 12:13, 4 September 2008 (UTC)

The user page thing is what I was talking about. I don't view it as vandal only either. Though it is also true she's mainly been promoting herself. I think I'll shorten and leave some comments. RlevseTalk 12:28, 4 September 2008 (UTC)

Nick Barlupe/ deleted article[edit]

Hello, i'm sending you this message concerning Nicholas Balrupe and his Wikipedia article that was deleted. Nicholas Barlupe is a 19 year old American stand up comedian who should be legitimately recognized as a notable alumni and should have a well informed Wikipedia article. I am a former high school teacher of his while he was attending Woodcreek high school in Roseville CA. I ask that you please do not delete his article. I appreciate your time, Thank you! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 6thave (talkcontribs) 08:06, 11 September 2008 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:Breakers.gif)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Breakers.gif. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media 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 media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 12:41, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

breaker (band) article being deleted by you[edit]

i don't know if you know this but breaker is actually a real heavy metal band from cleveland, ohio USA (1982-1992, 2000-current) and they do deserve to have a wikipedia page. i don't understand why but i see you deleted an article for them over two years ago, i would seriously like to suggest you allow us fans of breaker the opportunity to make them a wiki page.

please respond to me here or at atomiccrash@alltel.net if you have any questions... but please i urge you to allow the creation of a breaker (band) page on wikipedia. they have fans all over the world and especially in germany and they're also referenced a few times on wiki pages already with a 'red link'!!

thank you. Derica (talk) 03:21, 10 November 2008 (UTC)

WP:AUS 200 GA drive[edit]

Hi Harro5. Per last year, we are now closing in on another milestone for AUS, with 178 current GAs. Well, since you participated in the GA drive last year with Caulfield Grammar School, this is another rallying cry to WP:AWNB. YellowMonkey (bananabucket) 05:03, 8 December 2008 (UTC)

Notable Alumni on USMA Page[edit]

Hi there, I saw you added internal links to the many of the most notable alumni. I do have a question though. It is my understanding that if a person is referenced more than once in an article, wikipedia convention is that you are supposed to only internally link them the first time that they appear. The only notable graduate on the list that does not appear previously in the article is Jefferson Davis. Based on this convention, do you think the internal links to Grant, Ike, MacArthur, Bradley, ect should be removed? I'm either way on it, because given that they are being featured as notable grads, it does make sense to link to their own pages from this place in the article. I'm still a little new at editing Wikipedia, so I'm not sure about this one. Thanks for contributing to the USMA article.--Ahodges7 (talk) 13:42, 19 December 2008 (UTC)

Lists of Schools in Australia[edit]

No, Private Schools Are either "Catholic" (founded and/or run by the catholic church) or "Indepenent" (other religions/non religious). schools that select students through a test are "Selective" Schools, only New South Wales and Victoria have these. Goverment schools are usally called "public" schools. this is an Australian article, it should use australian terminology.--User:Decat2 May 9, 2009 —Preceding Decat2 (talk) 06:22, 9 May 2009 (UTC)


Speedy deletion of "Charles M. Blow"[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A page you created, Charles M. Blow, has been tagged for deletion, as it meets one or more of the criteria for speedy deletion; specifically, it is about a person or group of people, but it does not indicate how they are important or significant, and thus why they should be included in an encyclopedia. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, and the guidelines for biographies in particular.

You are welcome to contribute content which complies with our content policies and any applicable inclusion guidelines. However, please do not simply re-create the page with the same content. You may also wish to read our introduction to editing and guide to writing your first article.

Thank you. CTJF83Talk 05:12, 21 March 2009 (UTC)

Charles M. Blow[edit]

Every editor for a newspaper isn't notable enough for a Wikipedia article. I readded the tag, as page creators can not remove those tags. You may, however, add a {{holdon}}, if you don't think it should be deleted. CTJF83Talk 05:17, 21 March 2009 (UTC)

Being an admin you should have known not to do that then. What makes him any more notable than any other columnist for any other paper? CTJF83Talk 05:23, 21 March 2009 (UTC)
  • This matter has been resolved, and common sense has prevailed. I hope that my previous CSD dealings have never been this rash. Harro5 05:34, 21 March 2009 (UTC)

File:ArrudaBushOlympics.jpg[edit]

Just to let you know that I recently copied the above image that you uploaded to Wikipedia over to WikiMedia Commons, the Wikimedia central media repository for all free media. The image was either individually tagged or was in a category tagged with the {{Copy to Wikimedia Commons}} template. Your image is now available to all Wikimedia projects at the following location: Commons:File:ArrudaBushOlympics.jpg.

Editor's survey[edit]

Hi Harro5. My name is Mike Lyons and I am a doctoral student at Indiana University. I am conducting research on the writing and editing of high traffic “current events” articles on Wikipedia. I have noticed in the talk page archives at Barack Obama that you have contributed to the editing or maintenance of the article. I was hoping you would agree to fill out a brief survey about your experience. This study aims to help expand our thinking about collaborative knowledge production. Believe me I share your likely disdain for surveys but your participation would be immensely helpful in making the study a success. A link to the survey is included below.

File source problem with File:Chertoffinaug.JPG[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thank you for uploading File:Chertoffinaug.JPG. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, please add a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of that website's terms of use of its content. However, if the copyright holder is a party unaffiliated from the website's publisher, that copyright should also be acknowledged.

If you have uploaded other files, consider verifying that you have specified sources for those files as well. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged per Wikipedia's criteria for speedy deletion, F4. If the image is copyrighted and non-free, the image will be deleted 48 hours after 16:50, 1 May 2010 (UTC) per speedy deletion criterion F7. If you have any questions or are in need of assistance please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 16:50, 1 May 2010 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Vivek Wadhwa[edit]

The article Vivek Wadhwa has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Notability marginal, no new evidence of notability.

While all 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.

It's iffy. See what I just wrote on Talk:Vivek Wadhwa. The current article is a resume. His "academic appointments" are all hanger-on type positions, and don't meet WP:PROF. If he's notable, it's for his work on Y2K COBOL program conversion tools. --John Nagle (talk) 19:54, 4 March 2011 (UTC)
