Signing your comments[edit]

Hi there. In case you didn't know, when you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion, you should sign your posts by typing four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment. On many keyboards, the tilde is entered by holding the Shift key, and pressing the key with the tilde pictured. You may also click on the signature button Button sig2.png located above the edit window. This will automatically insert a signature with your name and the time you posted the comment. This information is useful because other editors will be able to tell who said what, and when. Thank you! ---- AW (talk) 22:20, 16 November 2007 (UTC)

Century Tower

As a current or past contributor to a related article, I thought I'd let you know about WikiProject University of Florida, a collaborative effort to improve Wikipedia's coverage of University of Florida. If you would like to participate, you can visit the project page, where you can join the project and see a list of open tasks and related articles. Thanks!


Obsession[edit]

Thanks for you recent edit to Obsession. That subsection headline was a driving me batty :) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Altairah (talkcontribs) 22:48, 2 November 2008 (UTC)

"Charged with felony" Policy[edit]

Howdy - just wanted to mention, as a member of Duke's judicial board, I have never seen any kind of written policy that says a student charged with a felony is automatically suspended. There is a policy that says a student convicted of a felony may be summarily dismissed from the university by the Vice President for Student Affairs. Thought I would post this here in support of your edit on the lacrosse hoax - DukeEGR93 04:12, 19 August 2009 (UTC)

BLP at NCSU[edit]

As an administrator, I have reverted your edit and removed the paragraph. The material is covered elsewhere, and repeating it there is undue weight and a violation of do not harm. I consider myself uninvolved in this subject otherwise than to do this revert. I highly recommend you leave the matter rest. DGG ( talk ) 01:53, 29 September 2009 (UTC)

As you and I disagree, I listed it at Wikipedia:Biographies of living persons/Noticeboard. DGG ( talk ) 23:52, 14 October 2009 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Amanda Marcotte (3rd nomination)[edit]

Hi there. On the AfD above, you made a statement accusing the BLP subject of 'libelous claims'. Can I ask you to please refactor, as it's basically an accusation of a criminal act? Thanks - Alison 05:56, 24 October 2009 (UTC)

I've now gone ahead and redacted that due to BLP concerns - Alison 22:22, 25 October 2009 (UTC)

Thank you for your response and for giving me no oppurtunity to do so. When it comes to accusations of criminal acts that are of dubious validity, I trust you will hold Marcotte to the same standard. Cheerio. HoundofBaskersville (talk) 01:12, 6 November 2009 (UTC)

Peter Wood[edit]

Just wanted to mention - Peter Wood was actually not one of the signatories of the Social Disaster ad. DukeEGR93 14:25, 16 November 2009 (UTC)


Water buffalo incident[edit]

It would help if you would do something constructive, instead of giving shifting and changing reasons for deleting stuff (which naturally tends to give rise to the suspicion that your main reason is because you personally don't like it). While it would be very good if everything on Wikipedia were sourced, what you deleted does not fall into the category of things which especially and particularly require sourcing if they are to be kept on a Wikipedia article. In any case, claims to that effect were commonly part of the news reports of the time, and it's quite relevant to the overall article narrative, because the way the UPenn process started, everybody who lied about what they did immediately got off scot free no questions asked, while the one person who told the truth about what he did was stigmatized and penalized for it by being dragged through a whole long convoluted Kafkaesque Byzantine proceeding...

The New York Times item (http://partners.nytimes.com/books/first/k/kors-university.html) cited in the WP article states:
a large number of students had shouted down to the women to leave them in peace. From all accounts, some few students had shouted apparently racial epithets, from "black asses" to "black bitches."
So it's already supported and your concerns, valid or not in others' eyes, is resolved already. DMacks (talk) 21:05, 29 April 2012 (UTC)
