Other accounts[edit]

Your activities demonstrate knowledge of wikipedia far in advance of what a brand new editor would know. Please disclose any other accounts you have edited with and whether you have been subject to any restrictions or blocks in another account. If you would prefer to do this privately you can email me. Please note that it is not permitted to use a separate account to edit policy areas. Spartaz Humbug! 17:58, 3 July 2010 (UTC)

Be careful Spartaz; calling someone a sockpuppet (as you did here) without having solid evidence could be considered a personal attack. If you have hard evidence that this person is a sockpuppet of a particular editor (rather than just "somebody") you can start a formal Sockpuppet Investigation. Otherwise, it's probably best just to not say anything. Saying, in effect, "I know you're a sock, but I don't know who you're a sock of" is generally frowned upon in Wikipedia, in my experience. Stonemason89 (talk) 20:48, 9 July 2010 (UTC)
I already finished this conversation and FHBTSG has provided an explanation. I'm happy, they are happy and I deleted the spi that someone started. So what is the point of this? Spartaz Humbug! 20:55, 9 July 2010 (UTC)
Oh sorry; I didn't see the rest of the conversation (I didn't realize the conversation had ended, actually). Was it continued on some other page? I was merely perusing this talk page since FHBTSG had recently edited Beck University, which I started, so I wanted to see if he/she was a new user. That's when I saw your message, which struck me as a little odd. However, if the matter has been cleared as you say it has, I don't think we need to discuss it any further.

Truth is I am not used to my work being summarily thrown out... it only happened to me once before, in first grade. I was on my way out, but because of your message...

On the other hand, I enjoy a challenge and a dialog with wise people, this attracts me.

Thanks for editing that Mitchell article, fixing mistakes etc, Wombat24 (talk) 07:35, 21 November 2010 (UTC)

Username[edit]

Have you considered changing your username to something shorter? Your signature, when you make comments in various talk pages, is so long that it is rather distracting. Also, if someone happens to need to revert your edit or to revert back to your edit, your username fills out a large portion of the edit summary box. Nsk92 (talk) 20:34, 12 July 2010 (UTC)

At least edit your User page, that might help if it blended into the woodwork. Mlpearc powwow 21:16, 12 July 2010 (UTC)

Please do not try to circumvent WP:BLP[edit]

An talkpage is not the place for your recent edits or link. Please do not introduce such items in a WP:BLP article. ----moreno oso (talk) 01:54, 1 August 2010 (UTC)

[edit]

I am just curious why you changed the caption on this image from "1980-2010" to "1980 on"? Deseret Book has clearly changed their logo based on their website, catalog, and flagship store in Salt Lake City. I would think the logo's official life is over this year, not in the indefinite future when the last item with that logo is available. Based on the mindset of beginning of life "on," every logo would be some date "on." I'd appreciate your thoughts. —GreenwoodKL (t, c) 22:11, 14 August 2010 (UTC)

Category Letter-word combinations as see also[edit]

It's one thing to create the category, it's another thing to add it as a "see also" to every article in the category. The category is insufficiently related to the subjects to be in see also. Please stop adding it to articles and remove it from the ones you've already put it on. Yworo (talk) 14:44, 20 August 2010 (UTC)

Please see Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Disambiguation#New_templates_and_categories. Thanks. -- Quiddity (talk) 20:38, 21 August 2010 (UTC)

Entries on disambiguation pages[edit]

When adding entries to a disambiguation page, please make sure the entry contains at least on blue-link. For example, your edits on Knowlton] or Moyer added a person's name but did not include a link. Cheers. olderwiser 19:10, 23 August 2010 (UTC)

Actually, looking into this a bit further, I see you had been creating pages for the persons' names as redirects to the disambiguation pages. That is really not appropriate. The disambiguation page should link a reader to an existing article with further information about the subject. That is, the disambiguation page should not be the only information about the topic in Wikipedia. olderwiser 19:19, 23 August 2010 (UTC)

Restoring Honor rally[edit]

A tag has been placed on Restoring Honor rally, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a redirect to a nonexistent page.

If you can fix this redirect to point to an existing Wikipedia page, please do so and remove the speedy deletion tag. However, please do not remove the speedy deletion tag unless you also fix the redirect. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this.

Just curious[edit]

I'm just curious about your recent addition of Category:Mormon studies to List of sects in the Latter Day Saint movement. To me this seems to fit very well and is a logical addition. However I noticed you put the list it the Category then removed it very quickly. I would have left it in, so I’m wondering what you know that I don’t?--ARTEST4ECHO talk 13:46, 10 September 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of -word[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thank you for experimenting with Wikipedia. Your test worked, and the page that you created has been or soon will be deleted. Please use the sandbox for any other tests you want to do. Take a look at the welcome page if you would like to learn more about contributing to our encyclopedia. You may also wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles - see the Article Wizard.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag - if no such tag exists then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hangon tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you.

Request for mediation of Restoring Honor rally[edit]

A request for formal mediation of the dispute relating to Restoring Honor rally was recently filed. As an editor concerned in this dispute, you are invited to participate in the mediation. The process of mediation is entirely voluntary and focuses exclusively on the content issues over which there is disagreement. Please review the request page and the guide to mediation requests and then indicate in the "party agreement" section whether you would agree to participate. Discussion relating to the mediation request welcome at the case talk page.

Thank you, AGK 21:35, 3 October 2010 (UTC)

Will you be responding to the mediation request? AGK 10:16, 6 October 2010 (UTC)
Just read your message on my talk page :). Don't worry, mediation can be confusing at times. If you read the initial post, you'll see that it says "Please review the request page"; click the 'request page' link, which takes you to the mediation request. Scroll down to the "Parties' agreement to mediation" section of that page, edit the section, and add # Agree. ~~~~ underneath the other parties' agreements. Then you'll have agreed and you need do nothing more. Hope this helps, AGK 14:18, 6 October 2010 (UTC)
I see you figured it out after my message, so you need do nothing more for now. Thanks, AGK 14:19, 6 October 2010 (UTC)

Request for mediation accepted[edit]

David Brian Mitchell[edit]

Why has the page gone into the Elizabeth Smart kidnapping page? If wikipedia has separate articles on the Lindbergh kidnap and Bruno Hauptmann (the criminal kidnapper) surely the same standard should apply to the Mitchell and the Elizabeth Smart Kidnapping? otherwise you'd also have to join the Bruno bio with the Lindbergh kidnapping. Or should this issue go to moderation? Wombat24 (talk) 01:48, 11 December 2010 (UTC)


I think you are mistaken in your interpretation of wp:ONEVENT, ie "The general rule in many cases is to cover the event, not the person. However, as both the event and the individual's role grow larger, separate articles become justified" Surely now that Mitchell is convicted and covered extensively in the courts and media his role has grown larger and the event certainly has grown larger since 2003. Also as before the Lindburg case established a standard for wikipedia or precedent and it has 3 separate articles, for the crime, for the criminal, and the victim. Plus Ottis and many other criminals have separate articles although they are technically known for only one crime. Plus the bio in the Smart kidnapping article surely makes the article substandard and confusing to follow. What do you think? and maybe its better to get a third person involved to resolve this matter, what do you think? Wombat24 (talk) 03:06, 11 December 2010 (UTC)

Re from my page:

Not sure if I follow your thinking here. All I want to see is, like the Lindbergh kidnapping which was the most famous one in the 20th century, this one as probably the most famous in the 21st century will likewise have 3 pages or 3 articles. As long as people who hear about Mitchell can google the name and go to his bio then it should be ok. The stats from yesterday before the verdict show that some 6.1k people read the Mitchell article when most days it was just a few hundred so they were specifically looking for him or an article on him, hence wikipedia is useful to them. But true, that linking only has low numbers going across pages but many will look for the names separately not by links, however the links should still be there as an option I believe. Wombat24 (talk) 08:49, 11 December 2010 (UTC)
on we:otherthingsexistI understand it to be that "When used correctly...comparisons are important as the encyclopedia should be consistent in the content that it provides or excludes" so hence if there are separate articles for the Lindbergh case and the criminal then the same standard should be a go for the smart kidnapping and Mitchell, as I see it Wombat24 (talk) 08:49, 11 December 2010 (UTC)

ps, one thing we do need to work out is how much information on the trials, competency and criminal, stays on the elizabeth smart kidnapping page and how much goes into the bio page for mitchell. Again i'd say the Lindbergh case should be the standard to follow, what do you think? (since very few others are involved in this editing) Wombat24 (talk) 08:57, 11 December 2010 (UTC)

Delete page Mitchell[edit]

Please don't delete that page. They trial was US vs Mr Mitchell not Miss Smart. And, again, wikipedia is full of articles of single criminal know for one crime or one event but who are covered enough all in the media to justify a bio page, eg, Ottis Tool, Bruno Hauptmann, Curtis Alger and many more.But Mitchell has gone viral, articles on him are in many news media across the world plus the references have article on him only like "the making of Immanuel" and so on. But if you do manage to get this page deleted then you surely must delete the Bruno Hauptmann one too Wombat24 (talk) 09:08, 11 December 2010 (UTC)

Maybe we should only be discussing the merge and not delete too, but both tags are up there. Can you please delete one of them, preferably leave it for discussion for a merge since you are arguing that point and not a deletion per say Wombat24 (talk) 10:00, 11 December 2010 (UTC)

Would I mind if you post my criminal-crime schemata as a WP essay?[edit]

Thanks for the encouragement! I'd rather you didn't post it just yet. I do think it would be valuable (not to blow my own horn too much), but I also think it could be simplified. A good essay needs easily understandable and quotable messages at its core, which I don't think this has just yet.

I totally don't mind you having a hand it it, though (this is a wiki after all). Would you might if I took a short while, posted a draft and then you can critique it and knock it about? --FormerIP (talk) 01:59, 23 December 2010 (UTC)

Looking into this, but I must tell you upfront that I prefer to see a separate bio page for any well known criminal. I think the extent and horror of their crimes need to be known by others Wombat24 (talk) 08:39, 26 December 2010 (UTC)

I guess the main thing with "death of..." v "murder of..." v "homicide of..." etc is establishing the legal status of the event, which would just be a matter for talkpage consensus. Why not "Murder of John F Kennedy" I can't say, although I expect it has been debated. For recent events as with Michael Jackson, perhaps the title will change as and when a definitive picture develops. --FormerIP (talk) 01:29, 31 December 2010 (UTC)
I did a userpage draft: User:FormerIP/Crime. Please do take a look and leave comments. Negative ones included. --FormerIP (talk) 16:42, 5 January 2011 (UTC)
Hi again. It was pointed out elsewhere that there is actually a guideline covering some of this. Because of that, I've posted here, just in case you want to look: Wikipedia_talk:Notability_(people)#Wikipedia:Notability_(people)#Perpetrators --FormerIP (talk) 23:48, 6 January 2011 (UTC)
Thanks. I haven't so much proposed contents from my essay as invited discussion about two things. Firstly, it seems to me that there's a loophole in the current guideline that should be closed, whatever else is or isn't done. It reads as if there is a higher-than-normal WP:N standard for criminals, but when you scratch the surface, the guidance actually allows criminals to be judged by the same notability standards as anyone else.
Secondly, looking at the pattern of how crime-related pages are actually named it seems clear that WP:N isn't the main deciding factor (ie very famous criminals often don't get their own article, whereas marginally notable ones often do). The pattern seems instead to reflect the operation of WP:N working together with WP:CFORK and the latter having the leading role. My proposition would be that that appears to be how the community likes it and it works, so the guidance should be changed to reflect that. --FormerIP (talk) 19:34, 8 January 2011 (UTC)

Mitchell[edit]

C'mon Hodgson?? why are you doing this to the Mitchell article. Now it looks dumb with two biographies, a timeline of the kidnapping that should be in the kidnapping article, things like Ricci's death which wasn't related to Mitchell at all, and PLUS we have been through this argument of joining the kidnapping article with the Mitchell bio article and the result was to keep them separate. So can you, please, fix this up and put the kidnapping things back where they belong? please? We have already settle this argument, or rather an administrator did after we all discussed the matter. Redirecting the kidnapping article to this Mitchell bio one doesn't fool anyone.Wombat24 (talk) 13:08, 22 January 2011 (UTC)

Moose Knuckle[edit]

You are not going to get anywhere trying to rename cameltoe. I suggest a section under cameltoe with the header moose knuckle which explains that this is an alternative term and that it is used for men as well. Moose knuckle should redirect to that section under cameltoe. μηδείς (talk) 18:52, 14 June 2011 (UTC)

User:DMacks speedily deleted your redirect, even though the vote was tied on the AfD between delete (4) and keep (2) / merge (2). Second, the term existed on the Cameltoe page before Moose knuckle existed. This deletion of the redirect is improper since if anything it should go to wiktionary if not cameltoe. I suggest you appeal this somewhere. I complained to User:DMack myself, maybe he'll say where to take it up. μηδείς (talk) 21:00, 14 June 2011 (UTC)
Yes, none of the criteria for deleting a redirect applies, and the fact that an article of the same name had been deleted does not apply. I found a scholar source for moose knuckle = camel toe, see http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/j.1529-8019.2010.01348.x/full will try to get pdf. Please discuss here, will watch here. μηδείς (talk) 02:03, 16 June 2011 (UTC)

You might considering notifying the people who voted on the AfD to comment on the RfD.

I can't get access to the article I posted above through my current institutional affiliation, but may be able to some time in the future from my alma mater. But the snippet does give camel toe and moose knuckle as synonyms for vulva. See the sources I listed at the RfD. μηδείς (talk) 03:29, 17 June 2011 (UTC)

FAC withdrawn[edit]

I appreciate that you are acting in good faith, but it is best if featured articles are nominated by people who have worked closely on them. In this way, they can give reasoned replies to reviewers and be familiar enough with the sources to act on suggested improvements. Someone who has not worked on the article can not provide this input, so the nomination may continue until opposition to it becomes so overwhelming that the article is failed; this takes away time from reviewers. While the Mitt Romney article is of reasonable quality, it is not yet of featured quality, and principal contributors must be consulted before a nomination, as required in the featured article candidate instructions.

George Romney new images licensing[edit]

I've doubt my doubts about your licensing for File:George and Lenore Romney in 1962.gif. How do you know this was published without a copyright notice? Maybe it was taken by a professional photographer who was a friend of theirs or who worked for AMC. Photos can be copyrighted without having a "©" visible anywhere.

On the other hand, I think File:Romney in 68.jpg can more safely be licensed as {{PD-textlogo}}, which I've seen done for other campaign logos of this form. I've gone ahead and done that on Commons. Wasted Time R (talk) 13:15, 31 January 2012 (UTC)

Seamus (dog)[edit]

Thanks you for providing me with these discussion results. When we were having the AfD for Seamus, I became increasingly concerned about merger that editors would never agree how to merge the Seamus article in the Mitt Romney article. I'm not sure if I want another review, but how do you do a merger review?? Is it the same as a deletion review? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dwainwr123 (talkcontribs) 04:34, 3 February 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for your input on this issue. I think that the decision to merge may be a case of trying to split the baby, where possibly Merge is seen as a midway point between Keep and Delete. At least in my opinion, there was no consensus on the Seamus AfD page -- 7 votes to Keep, 6 votes to Merge, and 6 votes to Delete, with many in each group having varying opinions on why the article should be kept, merged, or deleted. I think that if we are going to merge the Seamus article into the Mitt Romney article, then we have to include all of the article per WP:AFD/AI. If some of the editors of the Romney article resist that, then I will go to some form of review, since to delete most of the content of the Seamus article would violate the AfD decision.Debbie W. 05:01, 3 February 2012 (UTC)

I added the following to the Biography of Living Persons Noticeboard: "Several weeks ago, an article was created about Seamus, a dog owned by US Presidential candidate Mitt Romney. The dog was part of a controversial 1983 road trip, and has been in the news extensively. The article on Seamus (dog) was proposed for deletion. There was a long and contentious discussion at the Afd for Seamus. The AfD was closed with a decision to merge the Seamus article into the Mitt Romney article, which an editor did. Some of the frequent editors of the Mitt Romney article have deleted the information about Seamus, citing undue weight. This has led to an edit war between those who want to merge the Seamus article into to Mitt Romney article as decided by AfD, and those who don't want to change the Mitt Romney article."Debbie W. 05:29, 3 February 2012 (UTC)

George W. Romney photo licensing redux[edit]

If this newspaper press photo of him marching is fair use, then every photo ever taken of him is. So why do you think every Wikipedia article avoids these? Look at Nelson Rockefeller or Richard Nixon, just to pick two examples from the same era. Why is every photo there one taken by federal government personnel and thus public domain? Why aren't there a dozen NY Times press photos and AP press photos and so forth in those articles? What is it that you know that every other Wikipedia editor doesn't know? Wasted Time R (talk) 21:10, 5 February 2012 (UTC)

Since you are convinced of your case, I request that you add all the photos of George Romney that anybody ever took to the article now. That way we can get the FAC reviewers, which often include fair use experts, to pass judgement on them as a group. In other words, I'm concerned that they are reviewing an article which is going to undergo significant changes and aren't seeing the final product right now. Wasted Time R (talk) 21:32, 5 February 2012 (UTC)

My point is, if every photo ever taken of George Romney can be viewed as fair use, regardless of who took it (which is what you said in this edit summary), then this article needs a wholesale replacement of images. This one could be the new top image. This one would be better of him and Nixon. The one in here with the car would be great for the AMC section. This one would be great for the presidential campaign section. (Marked as "© Bettmann/CORBIS" - who cares! It's fair use.) This one conveys his personality, surely it should be used. This one of him playing golf with a young Mitt gazing in adoration - priceless! So why not go ahead and do this, and then I will alert all the FAC reviewers to rejudge the article given the new images. Wasted Time R (talk) 13:30, 6 February 2012 (UTC)

I get your point about fair use and "historical importance", but that seems to invite many debates. Is a photo of Romney next to one of his cars a transient piece of marketing, or a historically relevant image that represents the start of the long conflict Detroit would have about making smaller, more fuel-efficient cars? Cases can be made both ways. Wasted Time R (talk) 03:00, 7 February 2012 (UTC)

Seamus & SNL External Link[edit]

I apologize for my previous comments on the Talk:Seamus (dog) page about Jason Sudeikis' Saturday Night Live sketch of Mitt Romney and Seamus. My comments were in response to another editor who had deleted all the external links on the page. After doing some research, I think that the SNL parody is an appropriate external link for the Seamus page. I had never read Wikipedia's 'in popular culture' guidelines before. Additionally, I did a search of political scandals and political gaffes on Wikipedia, and although they are not common, there are some examples of parodies being used as external links. For example, there is an external link for the infamous Howard Dean scream on his Wikipedia page, and in the Dan Quayle Wikipedia article, there is an external link to his foot-in-mouth quotations. I have revised my comments on the Talk:Seamus (dog) page. Debbie W. 15:20, 19 April 2012 (UTC)

Mile Romney: related to painter English painter George Romney?[edit]

Hi, I hope that this message finds you well! I noticed your edits to the article Miles Romney, and adding references that he is related to English painter George Romney. There have been a number of edits and counter-edits re Romeny's relationship to English painter George Romney. According to this edit he is not. Until we have something solid, I suggest that we remove it. Rgds, --Trident13 (talk) 22:01, 18 June 2012 (UTC)

The Cycle (TV series)[edit]

Hey, I'd just like to let you know that I redirected The Cycle (TV series) to The Cycle (TV program) (which was created about 12 hrs earlier) on the account that the latter contains more information and has more citations. If you have any objections, don't hesitate to discuss with me or make changes to the article yourself. — Yk Yk Yk talk ~ contrib 05:59, 23 June 2012 (UTC)

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:Checkers Nixon.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use.

You may add it back if you think that that will be useful.

TheBlaze[edit]

I understand the reason behind your addition of the infobox for TheBlaze's website and I saw Huffington Post's infobox. The infobox you placed was on TheBlaze's page previous to my edits. However, TheBlaze has grown into a national cable news network over the past 12 months. It is no longer on the level of Huffington Post. CNN, Fox News, msnbc, etc. do not have separate infoboxes for their websites. Also, the "main" page link you placed redirected right back to the very section under TheBlaze's page. I just wanted to share these thoughts with you and get your feedback. LibertarianGuy (talk) 23:03, 2 April 2013 (UTC)

TheBlaze website[edit]

Thank you for creating the new page! If you don't mind, I edited the spelling to reflect the correct company name. I also added a link to the Navbox for TheBlaze company. Are you a Glenn Beck fan? I would LOVE to collaborate with people (are you interested) in all TheBlaze/Mercury Radio Arts pages! It's a daunting task! LibertarianGuy (talk) 23:10, 2 April 2013 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of File:IJMS cover.jpg[edit]

A tag has been placed on File:IJMS cover.jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a non-free file with a clearly invalid licensing tag; or it otherwise fails some part of the non-free content criteria. If you can find a valid tag that expresses why the file can be used under the fair use guidelines, please replace the current tag with that tag. If no such tag exists, please add the {{Non-free fair use}} tag, along with a brief explanation of why this constitutes fair use of the file. If the file has been deleted, you can re-upload it, but please ensure you place the correct tag on it.

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 "Click here to 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 removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Main Page appearance: Mitt Romney[edit]

This is a note to let the main editors of Mitt Romney know that the article will be appearing as today's featured article on March 12, 2014. If this article needs any attention or maintenance, it would be preferable if that could be done before its appearance on the Main Page. If you prefer that the article appear as TFA on a different date, or not at all, please ask Bencherlite (talk · contribs). You can view the TFA blurb at Wikipedia:Today's featured article/March 12, 2014. If it needs tweaking, or if it needs rewording to match improvements to the article between now and its main page appearance, please edit it, following the instructions at Wikipedia:Today's featured article/requests/instructions. The blurb as it stands now is below:

Mitt Romney in 2013

Mitt Romney (born 1947) is an American businessman who was Governor of Massachusetts from 2003 to 2007 and the Republican nominee for President of the United States in the 2012 election. He was raised in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, by his parents Lenore and George Romney, and spent two years in France as a Mormon missionary. He married Ann Davies in 1969, with whom he has had five children. After studying at Brigham Young and Harvard universities, he joined the management consultancy Bain & Company before co-founding the spin-off investment firm Bain Capital. He unsuccessfully ran as the Republican candidate in the 1994 Massachusetts election for Senate against Ted Kennedy. He relaunched his political career after successfully running the Salt Lake Organizing Committee for the 2002 Winter Olympics. Elected Governor of Massachusetts in 2002, he helped enact state health care reform legislation, the first of its kind in America. Romney won the 2012 Republican presidential nomination, becoming the first Mormon to be a major party presidential nominee, but lost the election to Barack Obama by a 332–206 electoral college margin and by 51–47 percent in the popular vote.
