Looking for specific editing comments ON RICHARD ISAAC FINE[edit]

I am seeking review and feedback on a new article I have initiated, titled: "Richard Isaac Fine". It should be read as part of "Politic". Please also feel free to email me at .InproperinLA (talk) 16:12, 28 November 2009 (UTC)InproperinLA

Any specific editing comments would be most welcome, since this was my first on the spur of the moment article for Wikipedia, and I am not sure it was formatted to the correct standards.--InproperinLA (talk) 03:41, 29 November 2009 (UTC)

Hi, I made some changes, you can see them in the article's history. To add wikilinks (blue links within wikipedia) to articles you have to type [[ and ]] around the term that is to be linked, you can't get that by adding Wikipedia as a reference. Also, I added some categories to the article and removed the image, as you can't get images to appear on Wikipedia by linking externally to them. To add an image you must upload it directly to Wikipedia (click "upload file" in the toolbox to the left under the globe and follow the directions there). From there you can link directly to the name in the file space. Our picture tutorial might be of use here.
Overall the article reads pretty well, and is very good for a start. You should look over our manual of style to see our official guidelines for presentation and also check out some of our other articles on similiar topics to see how they are done. I think the next thing to do is to to organize the article into sections with headers. You can read about how to do this here. If you have any specific questions, the new contributors' help page will probably be a better place to ask than your user talk page, as many editors patrol that page looking for questions to answer about Wikipedia. ThemFromSpace 05:16, 29 November 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for the help, Themfromspace. You definitely made it appear more like a wiki paper. The specific comments were particularly helpful. Good editors are far and few in between. I would try to tackle the headings issue first. Already added the missing refs. Figured out what you meant in re internal refs in wiki.

I am thinking of writing another, related, shorter, entry. In all, I would like to contribute 3-4 short entries, which would serve as anchors to anybody who would like to study the history of alleged judicial corruption and failed attempts at judicial reform in Southern California. I find it to be a subject that is vastly underrepresented in media, textbooks, etc. These would be short papers, small landmarks, but at least they would provide some entry point to others.

I have not figured out the tagging system at all. If you could give me a hint, or add alleged judicial corruption/failed attempted at judicial reform, as tags, I would be grateful. --InproperinLA (talk) 00:29, 30 November 2009 (UTC)

I added the text of headings, following guidelines, at least tried to. Need direct link to the mechanics of creating the headings.--InproperinLA (talk) 00:49, 30 November 2009 (UTC)

Figured out the mechanics of sections, cleaned it up. Split run on sentences. Please check it out, any specific comments would be greatly appreciated.--InproperinLA (talk) 20:03, 30 November 2009 (UTC)

Seeking specific editing comments on Rampart-FIPs[edit]

This is still a "stub", I hope to beef it up in the next 24-48 hours, so please endure with it for that length.--InproperinLA (talk) 19:51, 30 November 2009 (UTC)

As I am going through building it up, it appears inevitable that the entry would be seen by some as controversial. Editing comments, hopefully specific, are invited.

Hi, editors won't likely find your request on this page unless they have it on their watchlist. You should try posting this question over at the new contributors' help desk, that page is watched by a lot of editors interested in helping editors like you. Regarding controversial articles, you should always try to maintain a neutral point of view while editing. Even the most controversial subjects can be maintained through a neutral point of view, though it may take some policing and a lot of references. If controversial material is added which is not backed up by references it may be removed. If the article is about a living person and controversial material is added without references is should be removed per our policy on biographies of living people.
I also responded to your inquiries at my talk page. ThemFromSpace 01:05, 2 December 2009 (UTC)

Seeking Collaboration on Case Management Programs[edit]

The next entry, pending any day.

Seeking Collaboration on Authentication of Legal Records in the U.S.[edit]

Short entry coming up soon.


Writing these entries had a strange effect on me. First - I thought I knew the stories pretty well when I set down to write. I then concluded I had major gaps. Second - I was glued. In both cases I wrote the majority of the material in one sitting, for more hours than I would like to admit, but is nevertheless recorded.

Was the Rampart scandal investigation "massive"?[edit]

In attempt to address the question of the use of the word "massive" and its connotation two simple steps were taken: 1) search wikipedia for "massive,and 2) search google web, and google images for "massive.

Results of the searches are presented below.

Conclusion (tentative) the word had diverged in recent years, unbenown to this writer, and younger people may have associated it primarily with fictional video games. Older, bio-medical oriented persons, may see it as part of standard professional parlance as is "massive coronary".

Your Notice of Electronic Filing reversion[edit]

Joe, I said see the talk page, to which you haven't responded. The right response isn't to wholesale revert edits. I'm not going to edit-war on this; I'll look further at the article in the future, and I'm willing to seek moderation if you're unwilling to take any steps to improve its current state, which is, frankly, very poor. It's loaded with POV and OR, and gives a phenomenally misleading view of the subject. Sorry you've had a hard time with NEFs in the past, but this isn't the forum for what you're trying to do.

Dear UKexpat: Please notice that one thing entirely missing in your comments above - any specific comments on the matter at hand. I explicitly stated in my response to your edit that changes you introduced reflected lack of understanding of the basics, such as the difference between Authentication, Certification, Verification of official records. I am sorry if you cannot take the time to study the subject, but then again - you should not get involved in editing if you do not have the ability to commit the intellectual time and effort.InproperinLA (talk) 20:17, 17 December 2009 (UTC)

AfD nomination of Richard Isaac Fine[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

An editor has nominated one or more articles which you have created or worked on, for deletion. The nominated article is Richard Isaac Fine. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also Wikipedia:Notability and "What Wikipedia is not").

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion(s) by adding your comments to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Richard Isaac Fine. Please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate.

Please note: This is an automatic notification by a bot. I have nothing to do with this article or the deletion nomination, and can't do anything about it. --Erwin85Bot (talk) 01:05, 24 December 2009 (UTC)

December 2009[edit]

Information.svg Please do not attack other editors, as you did at Richard Isaac Fine. Comment on content, not on contributors. Personal attacks damage the community and deter users. Please stay cool and keep this in mind while editing. Thank you. Here [1] you wrote " representing it any other way shows dishonesty on the part of the writer" which very much looks like a personal attack on another editor. Dougweller (talk) 21:53, 26 December 2009 (UTC)


A couple of points. First, the basic choices are Delete or Keep, not 'oppose' or 'support'. And only once, please. All you are doing with continually writing 'oppose delete' is confusing things. Secondly, there is no 'moderation', this is the process for deletion. If an article is deleted there's a review process. Would you please indent your replies, using the appropriate number of :'s or *'s. It makes discussions easier to read. And very important, discussions about deletion are not votes. The closing editor or adminstrator will look at those arguments based on Wikipedia's policies and guidelines when making a decision. Finally, it's clearer who wrote something if you sign at the end of your last line, not below it. Thanks. Dougweller (talk) 22:00, 26 December 2009 (UTC)

Richard Fine[edit]

Sorry for the delay, I've been on vacation. The delete voters have some very good points about this article, so I suggest reading what they have to say and looking over the policy pages that they point to. Since I helped you with it, I don't think it would be fitting to give an honest evaluation of the article, but I do have some advice if the article gets deleted. I would suggest you ask the deleting administrator if you would be able to host a copy in your user space. If he agrees (this should happen unless he feels that the article can't be created without it being libelous) you could work on the draft in a public environment, but it wouldn't be treated as an article, so our notability guidelines wouldn't necessitate its deletion. If you are able to build up the article to meet the issues addressed at the deletion debate (notability will be the hardest for this to meet - this is done by providing evidence that the subject has recieved significant attention from reliable, third-party sources), you can then import the draft into the mainspace. Ask the deleting admin about all of this if you are confused. The page which discusses the process, called "userfication", is here. ThemFromSpace 23:02, 28 December 2009 (UTC)

File source problem with File:00-00-00-us-dist-ct-alabama-cm-ecf-nef-2008-no-digital-sig-2008.jpg[edit]


Thanks for uploading File:00-00-00-us-dist-ct-alabama-cm-ecf-nef-2008-no-digital-sig-2008.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, their copyright should also be acknowledged.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 22:55, 31 December 2009 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. FASTILYsock(TALK) 22:55, 31 December 2009 (UTC)

File copyright problem with File:09-12-07-huminski-pos.jpg[edit]


Thank you for uploading File:09-12-07-huminski-pos.jpg. However, it currently is missing information on its copyright status. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously. It may be deleted soon, unless we can determine the license and the source of the file. If you know this information, then you can add a copyright tag to the image description page.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their license and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thanks again for your cooperation. Chris G Bot (talk) 00:17, 4 January 2010 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Rampart-FIPs (Falsely Imprisoned Persons)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Rampart-FIPs (Falsely Imprisoned Persons) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

This is a neologism, whose Google hits all show they're just part of the Richard Fine movement (whose article was already deleted) and is just a bizarre perspective on the Rampart scandal.

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 {{dated prod}} 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 {{dated prod}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. The speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. OCNative (talk) 08:47, 15 January 2010 (UTC)

Per your off-wiki request I have restored the article, but I've also redirected it to Rampart scandal as I suspect that would be the main search term and unless I'm missing something this was part of that scandal. ϢereSpielChequers 16:25, 18 August 2011 (UTC)
The "Rampart-FIPs" article was really a WP:COATRACK for issues unrelated to the Rampart scandal. I see no harm in redirecting "Rampart-FIPs" to the main article, but I see no benefit either. --Weazie (talk) 19:13, 18 August 2011 (UTC)
It was deleted by the prod route, so should be restored on request. I could have started a AFD|deletion discussion as it is a disputed prod, but it seems harmless to me as a redirect - if anyone want to salvage material from its history to add to the main article they can now do so. ϢereSpielChequers 22:25, 5 September 2011 (UTC)
Surprise! I have not followed this item, or Wikipedia for a while. I assumed this item is deleted for ever... However, please notice that a Hollywood movie Rampart is due to be released soon, so that there would be substantial interest in the subject in the coming months.

Proposed deletion of Notice of Electronic Filing[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Notice of Electronic Filing has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

This is a non-notable subject. Really, an article about a paperwork process?

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} 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 {{dated prod}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist.

Replaceable fair use File:Wikipedia logo.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Wikipedia logo.jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that the media is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information or which could be adequately covered with text alone. If you believe this media is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the media description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per our non-free content policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. — Joseph Fox 17:15, 7 September 2011 (UTC)
