Hey. Thanks for the work you've done on Scrubs. When you upload images, you need to provide teh source on the image description page, along with a fair use rationale. I have done Image:My Choosiest Choice of All.jpg. Cheers. The JPStalk to me 23:39, 8 June 2006 (UTC)

Possible copyvio[edit]

Hi, there. I have been recently deleting a chain of copyvio episode summaries about the Scrubs (TV series) when I came across My Screw Up. Most of the content I've found has been from or, but I cannot find a source of the information on the article you created. Could you please confirm that you created the episode summary yourself? Or if not, could you explain what the source is? Thanks. Cowman109Talk 18:48, 5 August 2006 (UTC)

Hi, Cowman109! So somebody's finally taking care of all the copyvios Thricecube inserted into the Scrubs episodes... well, I can tell you that I wrote the plot summary for "My Screw Up" myself, as I did for most of the episode articles I created. I will try to restore these versions now that the Thricecube copyvio stuff has been removed. Thanks for you clean-up!

Alright, thanks (and sorry for the late response :P). Cowman109Talk 03:43, 9 August 2006 (UTC)

Information Removal[edit]

Hi there., i see that you've removed info about Scrat., as far as many people agree., Scrat almost died in Ice Age: The Meltdown and he is one of the popular characters in Ice Age series.

-- CS Shyam Sundar 10:23, 7 August 2006 (IST)
Well, in IMHO, Scrat "almost died" about a dozen times in the two movies, and I think the sentence "His character has proved enormously successful and many have credited him as the most popular character of the franchise." at the beginning of the article says everything we need to know about his popularity. We don't have to repeat this in the trivia section. -- Imladros 10:14, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

R.C. Young talk page[edit]

The talk page is not the place to debate the living-person's Wikipedia policy. I realize that you disagree with this policy, which is your right; in that case, please find the appropriate page to debate it and attempt to have it changed.

Also, you must assume good faith in all of your work on Wikipedia.

Finally, I am not Mr. Young. Attempting to unmask Wikipedia editors and/or falsely claim that editors are particular people is an extremely serious violation of Wikipedia policies.

Thus, you are now in violation of three separate, highly important, official Wikipedia policies. If you do not agree with these policies, then by all means do everything in your power to change them through the proper routes, rather than merely continuing to violate them. John Bryson 19:16, 28 September 2006 (UTC)

For first, I do absolutely not disagree with Wikipedia's living-persons policy. That policy is to protect living persons from unfair and wrong statements being made against them. This is just not what this case is about. It is about a person manipulting the talk page so that the sourced accusations made by Alabamaboy against Berenise are not shown any more.
And I can assure you that I do assume absolutely no good faith in the changes: Obviously Mr. Young or someone working for him or willing to do him favors has manipulated this article, and I still say that all readers have the right to know that, because this person has violated what Wikipedia is all about. (And don't even try to mess with me about that point, Alabamaboy's research is totally convincing!)
I also assume absolutely no good faith in your actions, "User:John Bryson" (whose only WP edits is the continuing removal of the accusations from the talk page). I am sure that you are the same person that is behind the changes we're talking about, and that person does show great interest in making Mr. Young look good on Wikipedia. So don't try to turn me into the one doing harm to this project! -- Imladros 20:09, 28 September 2006 (UTC)

Dear "Imladros"--forgive me, but I am not a very accomplished Wikipedian. To whom do I report Robert Clark Young for Wikipedia violations? He has archived the talk page on his site so that none of the discussions are visible, re-edited, and deleted sources Under the name "Professor Ron Hill" (a name from our shared undergraduate days), he fully deleted information about me and my forthcoming book on my grandfather Johnny Indrisano's Wikipedia page. My book has already appeared in publication as my MFA thesis and contains important biographical information about my grandfather. I have since restored the information. Bob has a very personal grudge against me and I do not feel it is right that he is basically able to manipulate whatever article he wants on Wikipedia with the administration doing nothing about it. username: Mountainwriter, 13:25 a,m., March 11, 2007

Image swapping[edit]

On the page for Parn of Record of Lodoss War, you have swapped an existing image of Parn "pic-parn.jpg" with "parn-rolw.jpg." Is there any reason you have done this, as they are the exact same file? Because of your unnecessary edit, you have orphaned the original uploaded picture with the same picture that you have merely re-uploaded. -Emhilradim 11:29, 19 July 2007 (UTC)

As you can see in the edit history of Pic-parn.jpg I tried to change the original picture into the one it is today. But at that time the change simply didn't have any effect, the image kept being the old one even after a second edit. Couldn't make heads or tails of that so I (indeed) re-uploaded the image under a new name, Parn rolw.jpg, confident that an eager editor would sooner or later delete the orphaned one. As for the image, I just chose a version without sword hanging in the air to make it look a little less RPG-Sourcebook-like. Really no evil intentions here ;-) -- Imladros 14:02, 19 July 2007 (UTC)

Christoph Waltz[edit]

Note, that the (25. Mai 2009) you added as a source to Christoph Waltz, was in parts word for word taken from the German wiki-entry (14. Mai 2009), as you can see [here] ("machte Waltz als frustrierter Romanautor Charly auf sich aufmerksam") So I doubt that this is an ideal source to add (for biographical facts), as it is clearly not the primary source. Jeune (talk) 14:18, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

I just realized that I hit the wrong user page, as you are not responsible for said addition. Sorry about that, I didn't want to bother you. Jeune (talk) 14:59, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

No problem! :-) -- Imladros (talk) 21:41, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

Your edit on Privateer[edit]

[1] → watch it next time you use edit summaries like that. Use edit summaries to summarize your edit, not to engage in incivility or attacking others. If you have something to comment on the article, then talk to that user or on Talk:Privateer. Regards, –MuZemike 21:27, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

Oh yeah, political correctness here to save the day! Why don't you go after people like Huey45 whose main interest appears to be harrassing other users? But okay, I won't use the bad, bad F-word, I promise. -- Imladros (talk) 21:33, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Proposed deletion of Kenneth Tigar[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Kenneth Tigar has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Really no point of this page as it has little information and should be deleted unless it is improved

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.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist.

Do you know of any sources that could be used for the article? I responded to your post on the talk page. If you have more information or resources to improve the article, you can provide it there. AdventurousSquirrel (talk) 22:55, 20 June 2012 (UTC)

Your edit "National Socialist Underground"[edit]

Hi, thanks for correcting my language errors. (I'm German and have a keen interest in this whole affair.) - As for the facts involved here, I give you some background information that might be of interest for you. The shredding was discovered only very recently by the investigation committee of the Bundestag (German Parliament). Furthermore they found out that there was an attempted cover-up of the time when that happened (dating it back half a year as a routine procedure). On a Saturday normally most employees are off-duty. (But if you want to tinker with something secretly ... you see.) It all has now grown into a colossal scandal and is even growing ever since! Members of the committee from across all parties are absolutely infuriated and disgusted about these methods and they don't mince words about that. As it turned out, the main reason for the resignation of Mr. Fromm as head of the agency was not so much the files shredding itself (which might have passed as a blunder of some goof), but the cover-up which he saw as betrayal and disloyalty towards himself. So his resignation was meant as a sign of protest. - More and more the name of that agency "Protection of the Constitution" has become a bitter irony or even cynicism. - So, you see, there is very much hot drama indeed! - Best regards ( -- (talk) 03:53, 11 July 2012 (UTC)

Hey there! Guess what, I'm German, too. I know all about the info you've just given me, and believe me, I am really just as outraged by these events as most of us. However, this is Wikipedia, our goal is not to voice outrage, it is to be objective. The official designation of the German domestic secret service is "Office for the Protection of the Constitution", and it is not the only government agency with a pompous name (see the Americans and their "Department of Homeland Security"). The adddition of "so called" suggests that the name is inofficial or widely called into question, which it simply isn't at this point. The "own" is also a phrasing that english speakers would only use to emphasize surprise or outrage, not something you write in an encylopedic artice. And you can't just name something "one of the biggest scandals yet", you gotta give a source for that and then write something like "it is now considered one of the biggest scandals" etc.
Again, I am totally with you where the anger and disgust about this affair is concerned, but our job as Wikipedians is to report the facts of the matter in a neutral way and with good sources (the stuff really needs more sources,too!) so that readers who are less informed can form an opinion on the matter without bias. -- Imladros (talk) 09:12, 11 July 2012 (UTC)
Hi Imladros, did a lot of work last night trying to improve the article National Socialist Underground. Added some sources (in english) too. Certainly the article still needs some stylistic refurbishing, corrections of language errors, and perhaps a table of contents. But that's quite a chore! ... And I would leave it to a native speaker and seasoned Wikipedian.
Would you like to just have a look and frankly share your opinion? - (At least I hope, I did not mess it all up.) Best regards -- (talk) 12:46, 5 August 2012 (UTC) ←(note: it's a dynamic IP)
PS: There was a controversy about the title of the article Bosphorus serial murders that got pretty nasty. This lead to a standstill, and the status of content now is lagging behind 8 month or even more.
