Goodbye[edit]

It looks like you have basically invoked "right to leave", as you've redirected all your pages and taken your name off various lists you were signed to... Well, whether you've quit WP for good or not or just started over with a new name, it's sad to see you go. --PresN 01:08, 6 April 2007 (UTC)

Back?[edit]

Hey, so I gather that you've decided not to leave WP, great! Let me know if you want your userpages undeleted. Cheers, JACOPLANE • 2007-04-10 06:28

Hope you enjoyed the break ˉˉanetode╦╩ 06:38, 10 April 2007 (UTC)

Angela Carter novel[edit]

Hi - it's available from Amazon.com under its British name (perhaps it's been reprinted in the U.S. under that name?) You can see it at [1]. I'd highly recommend it - although Nights at the Circus or The Passion of New Eve might be a more accessible place to start. Warofdreams talk 11:35, 10 April 2007 (UTC)

Welcome back![edit]

Nice to see you back! Hope you keep feeling better. --PresN 03:14, 11 April 2007 (UTC)

From your userpage[edit]

Can you please fix my page to reflect who I am. I went to Stanford, not Florida State.—Preceding unsigned comment added by Briansallen (talkcontribs) 22:40, 11 April 2007.

I've deleted the page since it finished by stating it was excerpted from a copyrighted (or, at least, not declaredly public domain or GFDL) source. hbdragon88, would you like your userpage redlinked again? Splash - tk 22:45, 11 April 2007 (UTC)

Jan Jones[edit]

Ok. lol. There was a link on the page of the other Jan Jones. It went to the state rep page. I'll change that unless it has already been changed. Randomfrenchie 00:07, 12 April 2007 (UTC)

J. Bryan Scott[edit]

Thanks for completing the AfD nom for me. I got distracted, and forgot about AfD3. Much obliged. -- P L E A T H E R talk 13:46, 14 April 2007 (UTC)

Robyn Archer[edit]

Thanks for the fix (really!). I was just seeing the issue when your fix went in. Peter Ellis - Talk 01:22, 16 April 2007 (UTC)

AfD nomination of Lawdex[edit]

An article that you have been involved in editing, Lawdex, has been listed by me for deletion. If you are interested in the deletion discussion, please participate by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Lawdex. Thank you. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by DESiegel (talkcontribs) 03:42, 16 April 2007 (UTC).

Smile[edit]

Thanks[edit]

Thanks for the kind words on my user page [2]. I took a break from Wikipedia for a few months after the Arbcom decision, but decided to give it another try and see how things had changed. While many of the same problems exist, it seems that at least the userbox wars simmered down somewhat, with the implementation of the "German solution" of userfying them all. For the most part, I'm focusing on articles at this point rather than peripheral issues, and I'm hoping to get at least one of my contributions to FA status eventually. Like you, I hope we can do something about the popular culture articles, only a handful of which really deserve to be kept. My mass AFD of a bunch of unsourced popular culture articles failed, but I am planning on renominating them one at a time with specific reasons for each one, and hopefully we can get rid of most of them. Crotalus horridus (TALKCONTRIBS) 07:36, 17 April 2007 (UTC)

Enderverse[edit]

How about moving the First Meetings short stories there as well and making it List of Enderverse short stories? Ausir 07:05, 18 April 2007 (UTC)

AfD Pokemon lists[edit]

I don't believe that one of A Man In Black's favourite experienced users like you failed to realise that merger discussions are childish and nonsensical if articles are being foolishly duplicated(I haven't seen any new info in the 1-20 list). Those lists will never touch the details that individual Pokemon articles do. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Vikrant Phadkay (talkcontribs)

Spam[edit]

Oh. Haha. Guess I didn't consider the sexual dimorhpism thing wondering why it was there. Sorry.—Loveはドコ? 04:21, 19 April 2007 (UTC)

AfD Pokemon lists[edit]

Mind your language! I made Torchic and Crawdaunt A-class articles while everyone else simply criticized them! Vikrant Phadkay 14:53, 19 April 2007 (UTC)

Michael Corston[edit]

There are people who believe in Mike Cortson. A lot of them. There are people who believed in Oral Roberts. How credible is the source that says the people were healed when Oral Roberts laid hands on them? All of your listed authors have links to their web sites. No one deleted them yet.

So, the people who have had pancreatic cancer, who also read Mike's books and were given hope, should now have a rug jerked out from under them by Wikipedia debating his credibility. (Lead us not into false hope--Oral Roberts or Mike Cortson) Imagine what a shock if they somehow came across this posting? Be careful of accusing people of being fraudulent. It could result in a lawsuit. The man used to be a lawyer. I highly recommend that we let this thing go. I'm not about to hire a detective to see if a man who claims he can move mountains--can REALLY move mountains. It's positive thinking... I'm all for it and I've got better things to do. It's all to motivate otherwise hopeless, helpless individuals. I heard his radio shows...I am convinced he is a sincere person. Disprove it!

If that article is removed from Wikipedia, then there are thousands more that need to go. This is really turning into a witch hunt. I'm reading, learning and understanding and so you are going to have to bare with me, and others like me, or lock out only people who have a proven track record for telling only the facts.LaurieFoston 22:36, 21 April 2007 (UTC)

Re: Quari[edit]

Actually I didn't think of that. I bet you are right and you don't need to apologise. I'm sorry for my confrontational edit summary and I've reverted myself. (BTW, I know it is not right, but I was taken off-guard by your red-linked userpage, maybe you should create one? :-)) Regards, Iamunknown 06:08, 22 April 2007 (UTC)

Illyas Babar[edit]

I wrote most of this article but don't know his YoB. None of his obituaries mentioned it. Tintin 06:06, 25 April 2007 (UTC)

The struckout opinions[edit]

I struck them out because they were being expressed by sockpuppets of an indefblocked user, not because they were anonymous. BigHaz - Schreit mich an 23:54, 30 April 2007 (UTC)

Duke Nukem[edit]

The list of parodies could go on forever? So could the list of fansites, so why don't you remove all of them too.

News Flash: William Mandel still alive[edit]

To paraphrase Mark Twain: accounts of Bill Mandel's death are greatly exaggerated. Where on earth did you get the idea that he died in 2006?!? Seriously -- it's quite bizarre that you somehow reached that conclusion from a Google search... Cgingold 22:35, 2 May 2007 (UTC)

HBUHSD[edit]

Hey there! I see you've returned and in the interest of working on something that won't drive you insane, I invite you to help me build the Huntington Beach Union High School District page. I just started it and it's got a lot of history to be culled from the official site, as well as re-creating the district boundaries, making a gallery of school emblems with links to the schools, etc. Lets make it the best district page in the county - I figure that isn't too much to ask.

As requested I have uploaded the original image. It is at Image:55180007.JPG. Regards - and good luck! PaddyBriggs 04:06, 13 May 2007 (UTC)

Huxley Characters[edit]

While one of the mottos of Wikipedia is be bold, I think you are overstepping by redirecting all these articles. If you think that the articles can be merged, please use the appropriate templates to allow a discussion of this. These articles have been up for quite some time. Until a concensus is reached on the corresponding article talk pages, I do not think that they should all simply be redirected. The notability of Mustapha Mond and Bernard Marx is an issue for debate. Thank you. Gaff ταλκ 01:49, 18 May 2007 (UTC)

Okay...I think I agree with you. It just struck me as over bold to make the decision unilaterally. BTW, the Brave New World article has been close to Featured status. Moving the character pages in and incorporating that information may be the right thing to do. Gaff ταλκ 01:58, 18 May 2007 (UTC)

Pokemon Professors[edit]

err, dont you think you went a little overboard with that merger? Maybe we could have discussed it first? What about non-english wiki links? or a discussion page? --WoodElf 09:21, 18 May 2007 (UTC)

LaurieFoston[edit]

Ah - it makes sense now. I've been keeping a half-eye on her contributions, as I do think people have been jumping on some of her edits a bit hard, but I can't defend those... iridescenti (talk to me!) 23:12, 19 May 2007 (UTC)

Your recent AIV report[edit]

My impression is that the incident you reported, regarding Vikrant Phadkay (talk · contribs), doesn't quite fit the "simple, obvious vandalism not needing any further discussion" glove that WP:AIV tends to deal with. You're welcome to re-post the matter at the admin noticeboard or incidents board for further discussion and possible action, though. – Luna Santin (talk) 00:45, 20 May 2007 (UTC)

Antonine Centre[edit]

Done. That one goes on my userpage with Beki and Pate Hole as above-and-beyond article rescue jobs — I find it hard to think of many subjects I care less about than suburban Scottish shopping malls (except maybe the Arbuthnots) iridescenti (talk to me!) 17:13, 29 May 2007 (UTC)

RV LACMTA table[edit]

I feel that your summary (rv, colors are hard to see and break accessibility) needs to be explained. "colors are hard to see," thats highly subjective, as most LACMTA pages are now moving (slowly but surely) to using colors to link to lines and I think most people see it just fine, so I don't see how thats anything but personal opinion. Now if we are impeding on usage of Wikipedia by disabled persons by having colored words, we can change that, but please explain how having color "break[s] accessibility". RickyCourtney 18:38, 29 May 2007 (UTC)

Perryman's trial[edit]

Probably, deleted. Yonatan talk 03:54, 31 May 2007 (UTC)

Patty Hearst[edit]

The "popular culture references" were separated from the main article due to complaints about its length. If you want to delete the separate article, that info could just as easily be added back to the main article. Baseball Bugs 12:23, 31 May 2007 (UTC)

Can you help, please?[edit]

You proposed the entry "Chip Coffey" for possible deletion.

Coffey is quickly garnering an international reputation within the spiritual and paranormal communities. Although he may not yet be on the "A List," he is far from unknown.

If you still feel that his notoriety does not merit an inclusion on the Wikipedia site, I will understand and delete the entry.

Or if you can help to improve this page and thus retain it, your assistance will be greatly appreciated.

Metro Liner[edit]

Let me clarify on the situation... the Orange Line is technically a part of the "Metro Liner" system. The signs around the stations say "Metro Liner" ([3]) just like signs at the light rail stations say "Metro Rail". The sides of the buses carry Metro Liner livery ([4]) but it is meant to be like the livery on the newer rail vehicles ([5]). The Metro Liner brand is supposed to be expanded in the future to other "colored" lines. An incredibly important distinction to make is that Metro Liner is the name of the service... like Metro Rail. The vehicles running on the line are in the livery for Metro Liners, but they only Metro Liners when they are on a Metro line (orange line), the Local and Rapid buses are just like any other bus in metro's fleet and their official model name is "60-BRT".

List of concepts in the Ender's Game series[edit]

Hey. I saw that you moved Other concepts in the Ender's Game series (which in turn had been moved from List of concepts in the Ender's Game series) to Concepts in the Ender's Game series. Though I don't quite see the reason for either of these moves, I don't object to it; however, it's created a lot of double redirects from pages that would have redirected to List of concepts in the Ender's Game series. I don't know whether these were created by you or by the person who moved List of concepts to Other concepts, but when you get a chance, can you or that person go through Special:Whatlinkshere/List of concepts in the Ender's Game series and fix any of the links that say "(redirect page}"? For example, you would change the redirect link at Molecular Disruption Device to point to "Concepts in the Ender's Game series#Molecular Disruption Device" instead of List of concepts in the Ender's Game series#Molecular Disruption Device. -- BlastOButter42 See Hear Speak 04:01, 13 June 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for the note[edit]

Yes, I'm aware of the spam issue, but I'll annotate the link to make sure that no one else wastes time on the warning. Gmail's spam handling is pretty good and I'm already getting spammed to all get out there in any case, so I don't mind a few more spams via this listing. --MalcolmGin Talk / Conts 13:17, 15 June 2007 (UTC)

Gold line extensions map.[edit]

I added a new map to the gold line page that includes both phases of the foothill and eastside extensions. Tell me what you think. RickyCourtney 03:40, 17 June 2007 (UTC)

Daniel Brandt on WP:LAME[edit]

Given some of the things Brandt did (e.g., Hivemind), I think the current version treats him more than fairly. Let's go over the objected bits one by one: "rants": The old version of Wikipedia Watch was a rant, full stop; I'm not sure about the current version. "piss Brandt off": Well, it was true of some of the people who contributed to the article. "immune to deletion": Not the best way of phrasing this ("not subject to notability-based deletion" is how I would've phrased it), but still valid; "D'oh!": A logical conclusion to the discussion. Thanks, Luc "Somethingorother" French 04:50, 17 June 2007 (UTC)

Request your comments[edit]

I created a proposal. Please comment here.

Last template request[edit]

I successfully used the #switch paramater on User:You Can't See Me!/UBX/Pokeuber to alter yes, no, but I'm having difficulty with one last part. If the user writes Pokeuber|1, it says "uses ubers." If the user writes Pokeuber|2, it says "doesn't use ubers." In either instance, if the user writes 1 or 2, I want the text "but does not mind using them in battle" to disappear. I tried a usual #if, but it didn't work. Do you know how? hbdragon88 01:49, 23 June 2007 (UTC)

Hmm. #ifeq works to remove it from the original template, but I want it gone fro from the 1 and the 2 switch functions... hbdragon88 02:02, 23 June 2007 (UTC)
Done. In order to use switch with the unnamed parameter (1), you'll have to explicitly define it when calling with 1=1 or 1=2. I'd suggest switching it to a named parameter like use=yes or use=no. Pagrashtak 15:58, 23 June 2007 (UTC)

Reply to your question on NYB's page[edit]

I believe that it's not in my rights to decide who should be named as a party; Arbitrators can motion for parties to be removed afterwards. Therefore, I also didn't move any comments to the talk page. - Penwhale | Blast him / Follow his steps 05:48, 29 June 2007 (UTC)

Tchaikovsky's death[edit]

Please leave the photo sizes alone. They are sized the way they currently are to help make the text more readable, give the reader's eyes some relief, and make the page look bettter so readers will be encouraged to read it. This is a general principle and modus operandi of professional layout. Reducing the photos to postage-stamp size only makes the text denser and harder to read. if you have any questions or with to discuss this, please do so. Jonyungk 15:09, 4 July 2007 (UTC)

Character sets[edit]

Have a look at Category:Multilingual support templates and see if you can find something appropriate. The sheer number of them suggests that calling a character set warning a self-reference is taking that rule a mite too far. Remember: WP:IAR.

I put a short note on Wikipedia_talk:Avoid_self-references asking for comments - this deserves wider input than two people. Orpheus 02:33, 5 July 2007 (UTC)

Sue W. Kelly[edit]

I reverted the above article to an earlier version, and only afterwards saw that I may have stepped on what you were trying to do to keep the article neutral. Unfortunately I have to go away from the computer for a bit, so if you want to change anything about the article in the meantime it is OK with me, I just wanted to replace the info the other user had taken out. --Fire Star 火星 02:36, 5 July 2007 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

*wag tail*... :-) --Homer Landskirty 20:19, 7 July 2007 (UTC)

Windows Text Editors[edit]

Following the note you added on my talk page about the notability of text editors I put a follow up comment. I think what is really needed is a WP policy on how to establish software notability which can then be applied to see if any software is notable rather than just concentrating on text editors.

I'm looking at what is required for such a policy to be created and will no doubt need help from some more experienced editors to formulate it. Any help would be appreciated.--Mendors 01:59, 8 July 2007 (UTC)

There wont be an agreement[edit]

Everytime I get messages like that, it's already a known fact that NO ONE will come to a compromise because it will do nothing but turn into a long drawn out, half-arsed debate. Mostly done to feed one's ego and exert power over other's, this is done mainly to preserve what these certain people want in those articles as they will never be altered in the future for better. This is regarding the smash tourny section and that "warning" you decided to slip in.--Neofcon 11:48, 8 July 2007 (UTC)

Accreditiation Council for Accountancy and Taxation[edit]

Dear Sir or Madam:

Please provide me with a full explanation as to why the page referring to the Accreditation Council for Accountancy and Taxation (ACAT) was deleted. The information provided to me is directly from ACAT and I placed that proviso within the Notes section of the Article.

The article is provided to give information on an existing credentialing organization like the State Board of Accountancy, the American Academy of Financial Management, etc. If there are any methods of referencing that you would like to see, please let me know. However, I can provide to you the permission given to me by ACAT to publish that information. Additionally, I am a credential holder.

Thank you.

Credit Default Swaps on Asset-Backed Securities[edit]

Hi, I noticed that you have deleted credit default swaps on asset-backed securities due to it being in copyright infringement. I can assure you that it isn't. I have written many articles on the subject, and can provide these to you separately. Additionally, I adapted this text for inclusion in the article, from previous materials I have written, but fundamentally it is a new text. I would be very grateful if you would let me have your thoughts.

This sub-section is something that could be usefully expanded: there are now $1 trillion of cds on abs outstanding. ISDA has also produced four template confirmations, which could each have a section in the article. There is quiet a bit of mis-information in the main credit derivative page - such as the materials relating to securitisation, and I am gradually clearing this up.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Credit Default Swaps on Asset-Backed Securities[edit]

Thanks very much for your quick response. Could I ask what the website was that you saw the text on. Was it http://www.mayerbrownrowe.com/london/publications/article.asp?id=3517&nid=369=delay , if so I will send through the e-mail you mention. If not, I would be very interested where it appeared. Many thanks for this.

Question[edit]

Do you know how to nominate something that's been in AFD before? I would like to have List of video game collector and limited editions back in AFD, but I've had problems nominating articles that have been in AFD in the past. I've read the instructions and all that, but it still never works right for me. RobJ1981 19:19, 14 July 2007 (UTC)

Do you know which nomination it will be? You said 5th nomination on my talk, is that the correct one or was that just an example you used? RobJ1981

Another question[edit]

What do I need to do to the Cesar Aguilar-Cano page to make it more about a child murder investigation (like say, the Jon benet Ramsay case) and not a memorial? Angry Aspie 15:11, 16 July 2007 (UTC)

Deletion of Another Battle Frontier page[edit]

To stop all of the recreations and deletions of Battle Frontier articles, I merged this existing one into the actual BF page on Wikipedia.

It has been revised and edited, as well as sources indicated, however users are still trying to delete the material without valid reason.

User:A Link to the Past has reverted the Battle Frontier page, the one containing the original page with my merger into a disambig several times, and this has sparked some debate as to whether this article should be kept. This user claims, as stated on my talk page, that "recreation of deleted material is very strong criteria that cannot be countered by anything whatsoever." He states that a previous article on the BF was deleted, however this was on February 2007, at least five months before I merged your article.

I understand, as stated in WP:CSD that recreation of deleted material is also criteria for sppedy deletion, however the new article adresses the issue as stated below. As stated in WP:CSD, the article is not an exact copy of the exact article and does not match the criteria. Recreation of deleted material is only a valid CSD if it is an exact copy of the previously deleted article.

(The paragraph below was the argument I wrote on his talk page.)

The reasons for the previous Battle Frontier article being deleted, as stated in Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Battle Frontier states the reason for the previous articles deletion was due to the fact that it failed to meet the criteria of verifiability and no original research, and contained no reliable sources. However, overall, while the article was deleted, many people agree that a BF aricle is still necessary due to the fact that it is actually a region on its own and is highly relevant to the Emerald video game (however there is so much information about it that it may not be able to be merged into the article on Emerald).

Thus, as the BF article is still relevant to the topic on Emerald discussed, however requires too long an explanation to be merged into the Emerald article, it is necessary to have a BF article on Wikipedia. The situation is starting to turn into an edit war, and the last time he reverted the article, he claimed that it needs a deletion review before it can be recreated. The thing is, he failed to seek a deletion review himself before deleting the article in the first place.

I am still discussing with this guy as to keeping the article but this may have to go into admin hands sometime. Eternal dragon 11:53, 19 July 2007 (UTC)

SNES FAC[edit]

I am awaiting your further reply to your comment on this FAC, or we could bring the discussion here if you would prefer. Anomie 19:00, 19 July 2007 (UTC)

Thank you, it mainly comes from necessity in dealing with the hard-to-source parts of this article. I even went to the extent of writing an essay on the matter. Since FA promotion depends on consensus, don't forget to change your "vote" to comment or support on the FAC page. Anomie 01:21, 20 July 2007 (UTC)

Deletion review on BF[edit]

Thanks for your reply. As you may have noticed, I was the author of the previously deleted article Battle Frontier (Pokémon Emerald) which was speedy deleted, according to the review because of the existence of this article, the one which I later merged into the BF page.

How can I start a review for the current BF page's undeletion? Eternal dragon 09:41, 20 July 2007 (UTC)

Craig Sorger deletion review[edit]

Good call on the article. It appears to have been altered substantially since I created it. However, I only found one line which reads like a memorial ("who loved science, video games, and race cars"), which I've deleted. The rest of the article has specifically to do with the crime, which, as the external references and links indicate, clearly satisfies the notoriety requirement. I went ahead and removed the deletion template. Feel free to add it back in if you think the article still reads like a memorial, but I think the problem has been solved. -Juansmith 05:13, 21 July 2007 (UTC)

Barnum house[edit]

Please excuse my writing all this out at length, but I'm glad of a chance to write down my approach in full. I agree with you that this is most likely copied from a brochure of some sort. (It is however possible that it was written specifically for WP by their PR consultant in the same style as their other PR--I've seen that a few times.) It is also possible that the page it was copied from is public domain or gives GFDL permission--though usually such pages turn out to give at most permission for non-commercial use, which does not satisfy WP:Copyright.

Unfortunately, you can't delete by speedy except for unquestionably copyright violation." Some people do anyway--there are some admins who consider the policies as just approximate guidelines, and will remove anything that ought to be removed. I consider that this can be too easily extended into removing what one thinks ought to be removed, though consensus might be otherwise--As for probably everyone else, there is quite a lot of material I think does not belong in WP, but other people disagree.

So you've got to find the copyvio. For the web this is easy, most of the time, so the first step is to try, realising that the first sentence or some other material might be changed. And there is a substantial amount of material on the web that can be freely accessed, but are invisible to Google. then you have to try to figure out where it is likely to be, and explore. For web material that you can't access, of course, this is impossible, but that's not likely to be the case here. For print, this is a real problem. You have to know enough to figure out where it came from, and then to find it. It was immensely easier to get away with plagiarism in the print era. But I think it's unlikely that this is print-only.

If you can't, there are several ways to go. If the material is deletable in some other way, that's an alternative--but I don't like stretching the rules too far, and this isn't hopelessly spammy--the history of the house is probably appropriate enough. Sometimes I just write to the author, and tell them to rework it--generally saying I haven't found it yet--they almost always understand perfectly well and rewrite or withdraw it. You can also send it to Afd--but it is not at all certain that it will be deleted at AfD if nobody can find the original. To say someone violated copyright when it might turn out that they didn't, could be considered potentially libelous.

Sometimes I stubbify it, especially if it describes a major corporation that should have an article--remove all but the identification. Because it is a recognized historic house, it probably is important. (But some people disagree with me here & think it is more important to teach contributors not to use copyright violating material. ) Sometimes, it is even possible to simply rewrite the article oneself--I will sometimes do that if it really seems worth the trouble and the original editor is no longer around. So there are the choices. I will keep an eye on it. DGG (talk) 02:26, 22 July 2007 (UTC)

WP:POKE is doing some housecleaning[edit]

This notice is to inform you that because many people have added their names to Wikipedia:WikiProject Pokémon#Participants but do not seem to be active, all names are being deleted in an effort to find out who is still truly interested in the project. All you have to do is re-add your name if you'd still like to be considered a member of WP:POKE. Any questions, you can contact me on my talk page. -ΖαππερΝαππερ BabelAlexandria 17:39, 22 July 2007 (UTC)

Wondering About Prods And Tags[edit]

I noticed you both prodded and tagged Atomic k records. Is it ever necessary to do that? I'm not questioning you or anything; it's just that I see a tag as a "definite delete" but a prod more like, "Hmm, maybe delete, but maybe not if it gets cleaned up." Is my perspective incorrect? Once again, just curious. :) -WarthogDemon 23:33, 26 July 2007 (UTC)

DRV for Battle Frontier[edit]

Thanks for commenting on the deletion of the page. As you may have been aware, there has been a small edit war taking place as to the deletion of this article. You've pulled me out from the middle of a wikibreak so I may not be able to comment on it, so thus I might need you or someone else to open the review for me.

I will be back on August 13. Thanks for your comments.

Hi again, about your question as to how I got your name, I notified people who have commented on the talk pages of this template and related templates, as well as those who participated in previous discussions on similar templates. Best, --Kudret abi 06:09, 20 August 2007 (UTC)

Pertaining to this...[edit]

Uh, why is it not needed? Is it because it lacks the notability of other Pokémon articles with a list of Pokémon, such as this? -- Altiris Exeunt 10:56, 20 August 2007 (UTC)

Ooh, I see. Thanks for the clarification. I'll be doing the same to Ruby (Pokémon) then, since that seems to fall under the same scenario as well. -- Altiris Exeunt 07:43, 21 August 2007 (UTC)

Raven Blade Images[edit]

Hi, I don't mean to be annoying by adding those pictures back... but it would help if you could explain the critical commentary I should put in my image descriptions. It's hard for me to understand the rules, maybe you could help me. Thanx. --MF14 02:30, 21 August 2007 (UTC)

Maddox's mention of the Nokia E70[edit]

Editor, I noticed your addition of maddox's commentary on Orbitz. We have a similiar situation with the Nokia E70 page, though there are editors that will not have maddox's mention of the phone included in the article. I pointed to this article as precedent, to which the other editor replied that it shouldn't be mentioned here either. If you have any thoughts, please volunteer them on the talk page. Thanks.--Loodog 01:04, 28 August 2007 (UTC)

Pokemon Colleseum[edit]

I think that you could argue it either way. However, the way the rest of that paragraph/section had been phrased did not give the specific impression of a second main character, but simply someone you see relatively often. To avoid confusion, I think you should either keep my edit, or rephrase the section. Unfortunatly, I am very busy at the moment, and don't have time to do it myself either way.  :D —Preceding unsigned comment added by Cactus Guru (talkcontribs) 01:01, 20 September 2007 (UTC)

Andrea Davis, Mrs. Pacific Islands 2007[edit]

The pictures you keep removing from this article for:

  • Item 8 - Significance, Its presence does significantly increase readers' understanding. Beauty Pageant winners aren't chosen by written description, you must be able to see them. It is a contest of aesthetics which can only be demonstrated visually.
  • Item 2 - Minimum Usage, There was only 1 photo of her poster in the article, the gallery portion consisted of a free Government photo and a privately owned, public domain photo.

These items will be restored as they significantly add to the article and fall within the acceptable guidelines. Novadogg 21:32, 20 September 2007 (UTC)Novadogg

Suggestion on a Pokémon template merge[edit]

I see that you strongly disagree with the template I have suggested. I had a look at the original merger proposition and found out some issues. I was thinking that this might work if:

  • "Species" was to become a subsection of "Characters" - essentially, Pokémon are characters, anyway.
  • "Criminal organisations" wre to fall under the "Characters" list.
  • A section on the TCG was added - although I don't know anything about it, so I guess someone else could. This ensures that the template is about the broader media rather than the in-universe perspective. I've made a suggestion on the talk page. ætərnal ðrAعon 09:36, 26 September 2007 (UTC)

Good catch[edit]

I'm tempted to block them for good, but I've added a message to WP:AN/I for people to keep an eye on him. I've deleted the article and recreated my stub version. Sheesh. I can't believe the gall of some people! - Ta bu shi da yu 05:10, 27 September 2007 (UTC)

Golden Sun FAC[edit]

I've added the sales figures: would you care to support now? David Fuchs (talk) 16:50, 29 September 2007 (UTC)

Klebold & Harris[edit]

While that sentence may not have a current reference, the change you made stated a definite fact that is not supported by references either. It isn't a clear cut case of them sitting down and saying "Hey, let's do this!!" There isn't a clear delineation of before and after, and yes, that IS a problem, but the references take time to research and add and no one has gotten that far as of yet. However, changing it to say "The ideas were first discussed in January 1998" is over-reaching and does suggest it was a then-now thing. As it is, the wording may not be perfect, but without a source, we can't just say the idea was formulated in January 1998. I tried rewording the sentence that isn't as much OR. Please check it and see what you think. Wildhartlivie 04:32, 4 October 2007 (UTC)

Actually, I found a reference for it and also reworded it to reflect so. Hope that satisfies your issue with it. Wildhartlivie 01:40, 5 October 2007 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/Master Chief (Halo)[edit]

I think that I've addressed your concern about the sentence in the lead; it's a strong enough claim to be worth explicit citation, even in the lead. Let us know whether that satisfies your concern, or whether you see anything else. — TKD::Talk 05:09, 8 October 2007 (UTC)

GA[edit]

I appreciate your comments. Firstly, I'd like to say that a concept and creation section is not essential in GA articles, as seen in the Fire Emblem articles (7 upwards). If the Marth section is missing conception and creation only, this does not stop it being broad, it just stops it from being comprehensive, per this. Furthermore, I'll just let you know that information siply isn't attainable as of now. Thank you. Ashnard Talk Contribs 06:35, 9 October 2007 (UTC)

I can see what you're saying, but The Portopia Serial Murder Case doesn't have a "development" section. It really is preferred, but I'm almost certain that it's not essential. It would only be essential if a game were to go for FA, because it needs to be comprehensive. For GA, it must cover most aspects but not necessarily all. From what I've seen, Big Rigs failed on quite a lot of things, despite the broad coverage, so it is inconclusive whether it got failed on the "broad coverage" aspect. For Marth, I feel that it has everything except concept and creation, which I don't feel is a basis to fail it. As for Fire Emblem sections, they are definitely broad in their coverage even though "development" isn't (and can't really be) covered. Anyway, I'm not an expert on the subject and can add nothing else worth saying, try raising it at Wikipedia:Good article review. Thank you. Ashnard Talk Contribs 16:35, 9 October 2007 (UTC)

Anzu Mazaki[edit]

Please discuss the images first. I would like a more detailed rationale. Also, I especially contest the removal of two of the anime images, since the characters *looks different* in various media, and therefore the various images are needed to show this. WhisperToMe 02:26, 2 November 2007 (UTC)

I still insist that you have to be careful about removal of images, because you know that an unused fair use image can get deleted. Anyway, I'll take a look at your rationale :) WhisperToMe 23:29, 2 November 2007 (UTC)

Okay, I object to part A because the character design changes in the series. Notice how the hairstyle changes? The way her face is drawn changes? Her hair length becomes longer and longer? I do not object to Part B, so I am okay with the deletion of those images.

The number of images is one thing to consider, but it is not a hard-and-fast rule. Consider the subject; fictional characters have no alternatives other than non-free images, and I doubt that the creators would mind that there are some pics from non-free media (after all, fan websites do this all the time - I'm not saying that Wikipedia is a fan site - I'm just saying that creators know that screenshots of their works are circulated, and that generally they do not mind) WhisperToMe 23:35, 2 November 2007 (UTC)

Anyway, I welcome the posting to the page - If there is a consensus to remove the images, then that is the case that should be taken. WhisperToMe 23:55, 2 November 2007 (UTC)

Now it is down to five images, since the lineart one was speedied. :) WhisperToMe 04:41, 3 November 2007 (UTC)

Anzu[edit]

Well, the reason we use Anzu on most of Wikipedia is because the English-language manga uses it.

However the Rebecca Hawkins character does not exist in the manga; she is only in the 2nd anime. In THAT series Anzu is known as Tea in the English version. WhisperToMe 23:04, 7 November 2007 (UTC)

Yes, but ONLY in the cases of the TV show-only characters (i.e. Rebecca Hawkins, Dartz, Alister, Leon von Schroeder, etc.) and story arcs (KC Grand Championship, Noah Kaiba arc, Dartz arc) - Also English anime names are to be used with YGO Capsule Monsters and the second movie.

Sadly, the Yugioh pages in general are dead, almost no one edits them anymore. Big Five should actually be deleted, along with many other pages, because they have almost no hope for notability.

Kaiba Family[edit]

I did a quick clean-up. For future reference, I've been told by an admin that fiction pages are usually preferred to use present tense instead of past. The Clawed One 02:14, 12 November 2007 (UTC)

Gozaburo duels once, against Kaiba. And his deck consists of only 8 cards that can be identified: the 5 Exodia pieces, Contract with Exodia, Painful Choice, and Exodia Necross. Mokuba steals a deck and plays exactly two cards: a Plant and a Reptile. So for uniformity in the article, it's best to not mention Noah's. Deck types should be reserved for the main characters, where the deck is important to their character, and not a throwaway like say, Tristan or Serenity. The Clawed One 06:08, 12 November 2007 (UTC)
