Hey, there! I see you're under fresh start, and I don't want to bring up old junk if it's not of interest -- are you still following Kitchen Nightmares? We've got a new season, so of course, we've got a new "results adder" (mostly S3 which is odd.) I'm out of reverts for a bit, and am about to go leave a note on his/her talk page since edit summaries are being ignored
- That's one of about six articles I'm still keeping an eye on. It looks like the user has backed off for now, though their edits were outside of the norm and fairly amusing.
- I was just getting so frustrated with it all. It's been quite a relief to go to my watchlist and see four changes in the last three days, three of which were for project pages. :) --ICYTIGER'SBLOOD 13:57, 2 February 2011 (UTC)
They never give up with the open/closed business on Kitchen Nightmares, etc. do they? Just in case it's of interest, Charlie's in La Verne hasn't closed; it's just changed names after a short closure, and Yelp (I think it is) lists it closed under the old name. --Drmargi (talk) 07:39, 3 July 2012 (UTC)
Off the Map
Yes, I do understand that re-directs are here for good reason, although the series had episodes aired, and leaving on the main page just completely defeated the purpose as to why the page was created. Although, I do also understand that you made a re-direct, as it only had two episodes, causing it to be a short and useless article, which is rather fine. I only undid the re-direct because A) The main article started to look very bulky, and the random splash of green was very unappealing and B) There was enough episodes for it's separate page.
Progressive Youth of Poland
Hi there! I just wanted to say that this article about PYP shouldn't be removed because this organization truly exists and was one of the members of Committee for the Defence and Aid of Repressed Workers (KPiORP), which was pretty well known in Poland. On the talk page of this article I posted many links that are about this organization. The only reason why polish article about PYP on the polish website of Wikipedia was deleted was that it doesn't feel right for some polish users to have an article about communist organization in Poland (we have a very strong anticommunism in our country). That is also why this organization changed its name to Progressive Youth of Poland in 2009. Thanks for consideration. kmp1917 —Preceding undated comment added 13:24, 27 February 2011 (UTC).
- You really need to cite reliable sources to verify this information though, instead of just saying so (your word is original research, which doesn't really count for anything around here). I've noticed you have a bit of a conflict of interest in this material and may need to look at this from an outside perspective. It needs to pass WP:ORG to remain on Wikipedia.

I have posted a truce/compromise
I have posted a truce/compromise on the List of Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated episodes Discussion page that I would like to be taking into strong consideration as to avoid future problems when it comes to that page and so people don't feel treated unfairly or discriminated against.
Image policy question
I'm wondering if you can answer my questions about image notability (see here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia_talk:Image_use_policy). I ask because you seem to be a pretty experienced user, and because I noticed that you removed the gallery from the Nipple Piercing page. Before you did so that article had more than twice as many images as the Earring article! It seems that many of the sex-related articles seem particularly prone to having lots of unnecessary/redundant images. In comparison, certain other articles seem to have fewer images than they should (ie. there is no image illustrating rigor mortis on either the Rigor Mortis article or the Death article, when having one would IMO be quite helpful in showing what it is).
Anyway, can you help point me to what rules/guidelines I'm looking for? Or are WP:NOTREPOSITORY and the short "When to use images" section on WP:IUP all there is? I ask so that I can have something to direct people to when I remove unnecessary images. Thanks in advance for any help you can give. Nemokara (talk) 06:10, 19 May 2011 (UTC)
- I don't really use any policy pages or guidelines other than those you've already mentioned (except, perhaps, WP:UNDUE). My rule of thumb is generally a photo for every other section (unless the image is of exceptional note). There were two big problems with the nipple piercing gallery. The first is that the article is so short and there are already several photos representing the topic that a gallery that takes up more space than the entire article is completely ridiculous. The second is that the vast majority of the photos in the gallery were of naked women with nipple piercings, rather than nipple piercings, which makes a gallery pointless if you can't even see what it's supposed to be show-casing. I do disagree with your removal of the photo at Prince Albert (genital piercing) as there were only two photos of the piercing, both from different angles and with different types of jewelry, which gives them both quality to the article. Both photos also have special permission to be on that article, as opposed to someone just randomly pulling them from the commons. I have reverted that change you made, but I do understand why you made it. ICYTIGER'SBLOOD 23:33, 19 May 2011 (UTC)
- Thanks for pointing out WP:UNDUE. But it seems even with the policies we've mentioned that there is a lot of room for interpretation. It's a bit puzzling why it's not more clearly spelled out. Oh well. As for the issue of having special permission, I don't really know how that's relevant in this case, but since I'm still somewhat of a WP newb, I'll take your word for it. Thanks again for your help!Nemokara (talk) 22:32, 26 May 2011 (UTC)
- The image is blacklisted, which means it can't be used anywhere on Wikipedia, unless an admin has approved its use for specific articles and given it permission to use there. This was actually an issue recently, when the article was moved, the user who moved it didn't get the new permissions from an admin, and the images stopped showing up. It may seem trivial, but having an admin (in this case, multiple admins) approve it does hold weight for inclusion. Ignoring all that, there were other reasons to keep it, as I mentioned before.

Avon High School
You're correct about it being original research and needing sourced. I shouldn't have put it in and won't do so again. However, I want to let you know that the bit about them being beaten yesterday by a band that doesn't participate in ISSMA was true. They came in second (91.95) to Homestead (92.10). Homestead does not participate in BOA competitions. City boy77 (talk) 02:04, 24 October 2011 (UTC)
- Ok, I understand what you're saying here, when you've written it all out. The way you had it in the article was really confusing (it sounded like you were saying the band who placed 1st was disqualified from participating in BOA). Thank you for the message and acknowledgement of my concerns. I really appreciate that. :) ICYTIGER'SBLOOD 02:16, 24 October 2011 (UTC)

Just a head's up: our old disruptive pal Roman888 is back as an IP sock on the Kitchen Nightmares article. He started a new discussion of the updates issue this morning, which I remove immediately, and so far no response (am now editing this to add a clause, and I see a notification just popped, so I may have spoken too soon). I've notified the blocking admin and another involved in his CCI case, but I thought I'd drop you a note since you were involved in the older discussions. --Drmargi (talk) 13:47, 25 September 2013 (UTC)
I notice you are a seasoned editor in Wikipedia and are probably an editor or administrator or someone of importance. Are you able to check and make sure that this person is not able to disparage and make baseless accusations against other people like he/she is currently doing in Talk:Kitchen Nightmares? This person has deleted many constructive posts as such. Much thanks. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 16:40, 20 July 2014 (UTC)
- ITB, this is Roman888 yet again, trying to stir up trouble. --Drmargi (talk) 17:05, 20 July 2014 (UTC)
- Just so you're aware, Drmargi and I feel the same way about the article. I haven't really looked into the hubbub this time around, but it can say with very little doubt that I support Drmargi's stance. ICYTIGER'SBLOOD 17:48, 20 July 2014 (UTC)
