Sidebar at WT:ROBO

Hiya Jameson. I'm not good with templates; is there a way to keep the sidebar from forcing all the edit links (when there is more than one section) to bunch up at the end of the sidebar? I've heard WP:BUNCH is sometimes useful. - Dan Dank55 (send/receive) 19:57, 25 October 2008 (UTC)

Yup, I completely forgot. I've restored the talk page. I'll work on it and see what we can do about this... - Jameson L. Tai talkguestbookcontribs 21:41, 25 October 2008 (UTC)
Check out User:Dank55/Sandbox. I've got an infobox on the right that doesn't bunch the "edit" buttons up. I remembered this from a FAC I worked on, but I have no idea which part of the CSS makes that work. - Dan Dank55 (send/receive) 02:05, 26 October 2008 (UTC)
I'm pretty sure it's the style="float: right; that makes it work. Not sure though. We'll have to try this on a sandbox with our code somehow... perhaps with sample talk page code from one of our archives. - Jameson L. Tai talkguestbookcontribs 04:01, 26 October 2008 (UTC)


Hello. Please don't put a message down and then delete it, as this means I get the new messages thing every twice, which frankly is absolute timewasting. I'm not being hard on you or nothing, but that's the way it is.--Stereotyper (talk) 16:26, 28 October 2008 (UTC)

Well, if you prefer me leaving an erroneous message on your talk page... -_- I was simply fixing an error. - Jameson L. Tai talkguestbookcontribs 16:39, 28 October 2008 (UTC)

Melbourne, Florida

I couldn't use the tool you supplied - incompatible with Mozilla Firefox I guess. I am interested. Maybe you could give me another pointer?

I will probably be watching you improve the article but I wouldn't mind (as you know!) putting in my two cents from time to time. I guess the article is a bit weak considering the size of the city. The only thing I can think of improving offhand is city services: Public Works, water, that sort of thing. Well, we can discuss it on that page. Student7 (talk) 20:29, 28 October 2008 (UTC)

Golden Eaglez

It is so annoying that this page has been deleted and is now under admin protection. It had sources, all needed copyrights, and verifiable texts and now its no more. I'd really appreciate it if you could help me in this matter —Preceding unsigned comment added by Paarty30 (talkcontribs) 01:53, 29 October 2008 (UTC)

Actually, I cannot help you. As with deleted pages, I am not an administrator. But seeing how you deliberately attempted to copy your page onto several locations to evade deletion will not run well with admins. And the answer is no, you didn't have enough sources, and certainly not the copyright information. If you are unsure as to exactly what our standards, guidelines, and policies are, there is a comprehensive list of Key Wikipedia Guidelines and Policies in the "Useful Links" section of my userpage (near the top right corner). If you need help with understanding the policy, I may be able to help you with that, but I would seriously reconsider recreating this material again until your new code's gotten a good peer review plus admin approval to take off the page-creation protection, which may only be removed by an administrator. - Jameson L. Tai talkguestbookcontribs 07:26, 29 October 2008 (UTC)
Oh yeah, WP:SANDBOX should give you a place for you to test out code, place it in your userspace if you want it kept for more than 12 hours. - Jameson L. Tai talkguestbookcontribs 07:28, 29 October 2008 (UTC)

(Moved from top of the page)

For some reason it didn't go to the bottom of my talk page... so I moved it - Jameson L. Tai talkguestbookcontribs 07:15, 30 October 2008 (UTC)

About the scramble

Thanks fo not calling me a vandal as I later on feared. Getting on, the "mailing list" of huggle users is at Wikipedia:Huggle/Users. New section was not used to add urgency and make the template more visible. I personally don't have huggle, but I am considering getting rollback so I can. If you are intrested in the idea, please go to Wikipedia_talk:Counter-Vandalism_Unit#A_suggestion for a discussion of the idea.--Ipatrol (talk) 19:55, 30 October 2008 (UTC)

University Article Assessment

I have recently finished editing and upgrading the article National University of Sciences and Technology. I am new to editing so I am quite sure there will be loads of unwikified stuff in there. Kindly assess this article yourself first and inform me of the problems so that I can put it on the WikiProject Universities assessment page after correcting them. Thankyou. Marsa Lahminal (talk) 09:47, 3 November 2008 (UTC)

P.S. I am having problems in finding free good pictures for the article. There are hardly any free pictures of this university on net.

Thank you

Your input and support are greatly appreciated! I definitely agree, posting correct figures, adding sourced information and maintaining Wikipedia:No original research isn't vandalism. I am surprised this experienced user would refer to adhering to these policies and posting sourced information that disagrees with his sensibilities as vandalism. No drama please is right! :) EagleScout18 (talk) 01:44, 6 November 2008 (UTC)

Dude, don't drag your userpage drama over to mine. I was simply keeping track of who used the {{helpme}} template and double-checking. If you have a problem with that user, talk to him personally or keep that conversation on your talk page. Spreading the fire to other people's user talk pages won't solve your problem and just makes others want to avoid helping you. The user in question is also an experienced editor. Although I can't vouch for his every move, I'm sure there was proper judgment placed. If you feel it was incorrect, take it up with an administrator. Especially on other people's talk pages, comment on content, not the people. - Jameson L. Tai talkguestbookcontribs 01:48, 6 November 2008 (UTC)

I totally agree with you! And this user is experienced, that's why I was so surprised. But POV sometimes does get in the way. Thanks again for your help! EagleScout18 (talk) 01:53, 6 November 2008 (UTC)

As you apparently only rate articles as stubs, and are doing so far faster than it takes to actually read the articles, what more needs to be add to Pacific University Health Professions Campus (rated C class by another project) to no longer be a WP:Stub using the definition there or the one from the standard scale at {{Grading scheme}}? Aboutmovies (talk) 07:41, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

As much as you may think I was doing this way too fast, I knew that article was rated as C-class by another WikiProject, but the way I read it, it is still technically a stub. You may request a reassessment at WP:UNI if you so prefer at a later date, but when I review it, it read like a stub. I have rated hundreds of university articles, so I pretty used to the WP:UNI's guidelines. Have a great day. - Jameson L. Tai talkguestbookcontribs 07:50, 13 November 2008 (UTC)
Like I asked, what more to make it Start class? Especially in consideration that UNI uses the standard assessment scheme I linked above, or to quote:
The article is either a very short article or a rough collection of information that will need much work to become a meaningful article. It is usually very short, but can be of any length if the material is irrelevant or incomprehensible.
So again, in the less than 1 minute you took to read the 9000 byte article, how is it "short" or "irrelevant" or "incomprehensible" as it generally follows what I usually use for say the WP:UNI article Willamette University College of Law that I worked to GA (along with 25 other GA articles)? An by the way, I've rated thousands of articles from a broad spectrum of subjects, but this is not a Stub like the UNI example nor A stub is an article containing only a few sentences of text which is too short to provide encyclopedic coverage of a subject, but not so short as to provide no useful information. Aboutmovies (talk) 08:03, 13 November 2008 (UTC)
OK, I was slightly pissed off when I read that, but look, I'm just going to take a step back, and so should you. We're not going into who has how many edit counts or reviews or what not. As I've said, if you're unhappy about that assessment, I've already given you a link to request a reassessment. When you're ready to discuss this after you've cleared your head, I'll be happy to discuss content improvement options. - Jameson L. Tai talkguestbookcontribs 08:26, 13 November 2008 (UTC)
  • Note: I rolled back your edit to remove the assessment. Please do not remove article ratings from a WikiProject. I see that you are the sole contributor to this article. Before automatically assuming that I never even gave a crap about your article, you really should have discussed this with me. In addition, as a general courtesy, a note on my talk page telling me that you reverted my assessment would have been nice as well. I'm sorry that we disagree on the assessment, and I'm sorry that your ego can't take another editor giving a sub-C-Class rating. Do not revert the assessment again without further discussion. - Jameson L. Tai talkguestbookcontribs 09:00, 13 November 2008 (UTC)
OK, I'll hold off till morning, but remember, I asked for specifics the first time and you tried to hit me with "I have rated hundreds of university articles, so I pretty used to the WP:UNI's guidelines" without addressing specifics, as if you were trying to pull rank. As to ego, the exact same thing can be said about your attitude here, and telling people not to revert is WP:OWN. I've repeatedly asked for specifics, and yet you can not defend your rating. Aboutmovies (talk) 09:05, 13 November 2008 (UTC)
Also note, using rollback in that manner is a violation of its use. This is a content dispute, not vandalism. I would suggest you not use rollback in that manner again and use undo as is covered at rollback. Aboutmovies (talk) 09:09, 13 November 2008 (UTC)
Wow, I'm really sensing some childish behavior here. Telling you not to revert my rating as a member of WikiProject Universities was a valid call, and not an attempt to pull rank or own an article. And don't throw the wiki alphabet soup at me. We're both experienced editors who know our way around. And using rollback on this little stunt you pulled was the right call as well. This was not a discussion on content itself, but its quality. And by reverting an established editor and an active member of a WikiProject who gave an assessment to an article, could be seen as vandalism. - Jameson L. Tai talkguestbookcontribs 09:13, 13 November 2008 (UTC)
Whoa!, take a step back guys. I'm no expert at ratings (because it's not my field). However I do Mediate and at the moment all I can suggest is that you both walk away from the computer, If your one of the few and lucky Wikipedians with a girlfriend or wife, make love to her and then (And only then) come back and discuss this rating issue :D. A good way to resolve this would be something like WP:THIRD rather than what your currently doing (Ad hominem arguements and attacks). The use of rollback was non-controversal because it A) Only reverted 1 diff (the same as undo would have) B) Removal of ratings can be construde as a form of disruptive editing. K?   «l| Ψrometheăn ™|l»  (talk) 09:39, 13 November 2008 (UTC)
(We need to unindent after this...) I'm just going to head to bed. I'm not touching this rating, and I think there's a slight conflict of interest for the article creator to touch the rating. Getting another member of WikiProject Universities to view this seems to be the more sensible solution here, so that's what I'll do. I don't expect much, but it looks like someone needs to take a chill pill, or be more humble about their work. - Jameson L. Tai talkguestbookcontribs 09:45, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

Still waiting for another assessment, and still waiting for specifics per my first two posts, which is what Wikipedia:WikiProject Universities/Assessment#Frequently asked questions says to do when the reviewer leaves no comments. Aboutmovies (talk) 21:40, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

If you read the previous post, I'm not touching anything related to that article. You may ask for a reassessment via WP:UNI, as I've said since the beginning of this conversation. - Jameson L. Tai talkguestbookcontribs 00:55, 14 November 2008 (UTC)
I read "Getting another member of WikiProject Universities to view this seems to be the more sensible solution here, so that's what I'll do." So is that what you are going to do? And why can't you articulate the reasoning behind the rating? If you cannot articulate why an article is a certain class, then maybe you should refrain from rating articles. And I question article raters who mis-classify articles that are not my own as well (or just correct them), because it is about getting it right. And when people come to me asking why I rating an article a certain way I articulate why it is what it is based on the criteria, I do not avoid the question by saying I've rated thousands of articles. But that's just me. Aboutmovies (talk) 02:20, 14 November 2008 (UTC)
Since you have assumed bad faith in assuming I never cared for your article, and your continued badgering my talk page for details, I will, from hence forth, refuse to reply to any of your messages on this talk page. Your behavior is highly inappropriate and I do not appreciate the constant bad attitude and rudeness. I am generally an easy-going collaborator, but you have pushed me past the edge. Please find another editor to help you. Good day. - Jameson L. Tai talkguestbookcontribs 03:34, 14 November 2008 (UTC)

Aboutmovies: If you really disagree so much, take it up with the wikiproject. Honestly, instead of yelling at him for the past 24 hours, you could have improved the article to at least C-class, if not B. He has made it clear that he does not want to talk to you, so take it up with the Wikiproject. - NuclearWarfare contact meMy work 03:41, 14 November 2008 (UTC)

Need for which kind of copyediting?

Hi. You wrote that Hosei University needs copy editing for grammar, style, cohesion, tone or spelling and that people (such as myself? or indeed yourself?) can assist by editing it now.

I'd like to do just that, but I can't see anything wrong with its grammar, style, cohesion, tone or spelling. Plenty else that's wrong with it -- uninformativeness where it matters, bogus numeric precision, etc. -- but no, nothing about grammar, style, cohesion, tone or spelling. Could you at least help by saying which it is (they are) among grammar, style, cohesion, tone and spelling, and preferably by giving an example or three? Thank you. Tama1988 (talk) 05:10, 14 November 2008 (UTC)

Sure. The article tag was {{copyedit}}, in which I believe that the style of the article needs to be improved significantly. I've tagged this article for improvement in the near future and I'll keep you in the loop as I finish off some old-business with some template coding and debugging misc code for a couple WikiProjects. - Jameson L. Tai talkguestbookcontribs 07:15, 14 November 2008 (UTC)
Right, so it's style, and not, say, spelling. But of course "style" can mean any of many things. Can you give an example of what it means here? (NB I'm sure it's a crap article, no question there; I'm just wondering about your particular "copyedit" beef(s).) Tama1988 (talk) 09:35, 14 November 2008 (UTC)
Sure, I'll show you a revised edition of the article when I get to that article on my to-do list. Have a great day. - Jameson L. Tai talkguestbookcontribs 17:20, 14 November 2008 (UTC)
Sorry if I labor the point, but you're not (yet, anyway) giving any help to people who might want to improve the article. I'm happy to infer that you are going to revise the article yourself, but if you are indeed planning to do this, then, as you won't say what kind of stylistic issues the article has, the template you added to the article doesn't serve to do anything more than remind yourself to fix the thing. It's a distraction to others or even an eyesore, and I've therefore removed it. NB this does not mean that I'm sure that the article couldn't be improved stylistically (let alone substantially); I welcome substantive suggestions and criticisms, and I'd read even your (would-be) instructions with interest. However, as long as you want just to note where you must make improvements, you may wish to follow the practice of such people as Awadewit in adding a "Notes to self" (or even more simply "To do") section to your own user page. Wishing you an excellent weekend too! Tama1988 (talk) 09:30, 15 November 2008 (UTC)
WP:AGF will be applied here, as your request (while your's was much, much more respectful than of User:Aboutmovies) was very similar to the post above. Article tags, along with article ratings technically should not be removed unless the problems are fixed. I'm not going to argue with you about telling you every little sentence that requires stylistic improvement, and actually I do have a user to-do list - the article tag had nothing to do with my future improvement of this article. Look, all I'm going to say is if you read the guidelines behind these article tags, these tags are flags for the community improve the article when possible. They were designed to stick-out (or in your definition, may be cause to look like an eyesore). We're not going into the same argument again as I did with User:Aboutmovies, and I'm not interested in throwing the wiki-alphabet soup at eachother. Let's just say I tagged the article, you disagree, and we'll just have to settle this when I get around to editing the article. OK? Have a good rest of the weekend. I'll be out of town today FYI. - Jameson L. Tai talkguestbookcontribs 12:13, 15 November 2008 (UTC)
Welcome back from your day off! And have a look here when you have a moment. Tama1988 (talk) 06:57, 16 November 2008 (UTC)
OK... FYI: I'll begin commenting on the validity of the article issues tags on the Village Pump page, and further discussion on on article will remain on this talk page. - Jameson L. Tai talkguestbookcontribs 17:43, 16 November 2008 (UTC)

Editing Help

I wrote: I've been working on improving the history of Ecuador page. I have most of the wikis in and have up until the Republic of Ecuador looking pretty good. I'm not sure how to handle the large volume of text below. Any suggestions?

I'm working on History of Ecuador someone seems to have copied text out of a book making everything after Republic of Ecuador very large and hard to read. I'm trying to condence it down.

I am very interested in seeing this article become a featured article and I want to know what they generally look for when accepting requested articles. What parts of the article take priority (example: I would assume they look for citations above grammar fixes)? Any suggestions on what I can do to bring this article to attention as quickly as possible? Thanks in advance. -- Tylerdmace (talk · contr) 06:49, 16 November 2008 (UTC)

Sure, have you taken a look at WP:FAR? You may also take a look at other WP:Biographies that are FAs to see their FA review process, (the scrutiny)... etc. Mainly, the article pretty much needs to be stable, sources cited (properly, well, and in order), grammar needs to be perfect, all images used in article needs to have proper fair-use or proper licenses... the list goes on and on. We can talk more about this on IRC, give me a holler... - Jameson L. Tai talkguestbookcontribs 17:50, 16 November 2008 (UTC)
I haven't taken an in-depth look at WP:FAR yet, but I know that the article was nominated for FAR temporarily and people were saying that it wasn't eligible because the article wasn't already a featured article. I guess it has to be featured in order for WP:FAR to be relevant? I'll read more into today and then take a look at both US presidential candidates that were featured this November 4th. -- Tylerdmace (talk · contr) 16:38, 17 November 2008 (UTC)

Light on the trigger reverting useful contributions

Thank you for "welcoming" me to Wikipedia, which I have been editing anonymously since its inception. You recently reverted a useful contribution I had made to the Dependency Hell article and left a somewhat condescending remark on my talk page about it.

I am going to reinstate my change to the article and recommend that if you take issue with my contributions you edit rather then revert.

Due to your unhelpful attitude I also added my 2 cents to your self-nominated deletion "trial".

--LirazSiri (talk) 06:58, 21 November 2008 (UTC)

  • update: I refined the language of my contribution and reintroduced it into the article. On second sight there was room for improvement but a revert should be the last resort. --LirazSiri (talk) 07:12, 21 November 2008 (UTC)
Excuse you, but before you go all gung ho on someone reverting your edit, please actually read what the message said. And I can't believe you took a humor page on Wikipedia seriously and !voted to have me deleted. Hey, gullible is written on the ceiling. - Jameson L. Tai talkguestbookcontribs 07:35, 21 November 2008 (UTC)

Project Avenue Article


I just wanted to let you know that the article "Project Avenue" is really starting to get on my nerves. It was created by somebody at my school, who being an idiot, wanted to irritate and offend me in any way possible. I edited it in retaliation but later realised it as inappropriate. I just recently cleared the page, but the kid won't stop. He keeps editing the page again and again. I would like to know if the page could be removed or the page creater warned for offensive material.

Thank you for your time,

Zdegrees08 (talk) 11:48, 21 November 2008 (UTC)

That article doesn't exist. Please let me know what article you are referring to. It may have been deleted already. - Jameson L. Tai talkguestbookcontribs 16:13, 21 November 2008 (UTC)


unless you have a specific objection and reason for reverting, i would ask that you stop. --emerson7 16:00, 22 November 2008 (UTC)

Actually, I told you to discuss your changes at the Template's talk page or at WP:UNI already (twice). Since you are making changes to a high-profile template that affects multiple articles, I've asked you to take the discussion to it parent WikiProject. Please consensus before making changes to the template. Thanks. - Jameson L. Tai talkguestbookcontribs 18:28, 22 November 2008 (UTC)
it's a valid rather benign edit, if you have specific objections...make 'em. otherwise, you are playing fast and slim with 3rr. --emerson7 08:01, 23 November 2008 (UTC)
As I have mentioned before, you are changing the native resolution to all chancellor image sizes, which will undoubtedly affect vast amounts of articles without further inspection of all of the articles using this template without first checking all the results. This is not WP:BOLD and is wreckless. Instead of trying to quote 3RR to me, I have already stated that further undo actions made by you will be considered as vandalism, which is exempt from WP:3RR. Please take the discussion to the WikiProject Universities discussion page. Let's not escalate this unnecessarily to something ugly. - Jameson L. Tai talkguestbookcontribs 08:47, 23 November 2008 (UTC)

just because you call it vandalism, doesn't make it so. also, for another concept you don't seem to have a grasp of, please reference: WP:DTTR. you have been reported to administrators. --emerson7 04:04, 24 November 2008 (UTC)

Go ahead, I understand what your POV is on this issue. The problem is that you unilaterally decided to change this template without discussion. And when I requested you to discuss your changes at WP:UNI, you ignored my request multiple times, instead only reverting my reverts. I think any investigating administrator will find that I have done this completely by the book. I have notified you, I have noted my intentions on every edit I made on this template via the edit summary, I have posted on all relevant talk pages, while you, have not. Please know that your unwillingness to collaborate with others is not productive. - Jameson L. Tai talkguestbookcontribs 06:05, 24 November 2008 (UTC)
I waited until your third revert before I gave you your first warning template, which since I wasn't being trigger happy with with the uw templates, I don't think you should need to quote me on WP:DTTR. - Jameson L. Tai talkguestbookcontribs 06:31, 24 November 2008 (UTC)

A new round of Collaboration of the Month is about to begin!

The current University Collaborations of the Month is
University of California, Berkeley

Every month a B-Class higher education-related topic is chosen for you to improve. Be bold!
This COTM is organized by Wikipedia:WikiProject Universities. (Nominate future collaborations or see past collaborations.)
This WP:UNI/COTM is effective: Dec 01 2008 ~ Dec 31 2008.
Pick your next WikiProject Universities COTM Candidate!

Yes, it's that time! A new article has been chosen our COTM next month.

Here's something I want to try, start treating it as a peer review. Start by skimming through the article, making sure the article fits our article guidelines. Then review for content: any copyvio, notability issues, reference listings, following the Manual of Style. Again, let's make sure we stick to the objectives listed on WP:UNI/COTM. Feel free to use the talk page of the article or COTM page to reflect or express opinions on how to make this program even better. Feel free to utilize #wikipedia-en-robotics connect if you wish, that channel doesn't get used enough and I'm usually there if I'm near a computer.

And here's something even more radical. See if you can attract authors currently maintaining the different COTM articles to join our WikiProject and better yet, our COTM project. I found when I started this program, jumping ships and editing other universities' articles was a big leap, but it's been very fun so far. I'd like to see more people actively participating.

Let's start off the new COTM program the right way. I want to see those articles in GA and FA soon. Hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving holiday and enjoy those Black Friday deals. - Jameson L. Tai talkguestbookcontribs 09:11, 23 November 2008 (UTC)

YesY Test Complete. - Jameson L. Tai talkguestbookcontribs 20:35, 23 November 2008 (UTC)

I've commented on my actions on that page, which I find I have done nothing wrong other than WP:BRD. Thank you for bringing the AN3 report to my attention. - Jameson L. Tai talkguestbookcontribs 06:30, 24 November 2008 (UTC)

Per your request

You were asking if I wanted to do the RfA thang ... Balloonman has offered to nom and set up a page, please feel free to check out his comments on my userpage and/or ask me questions on my RfA page. - Dan Dank55 (send/receive) 15:26, 24 November 2008 (UTC)

Dan, I'll trust that James did ask ya, but be careful of these types of messages... especially before the RfA goes live.---Balloonman PoppaBalloon 18:18, 24 November 2008 (UTC)
Sure thing, Balloonman. I'll do a quick WP:ER and put the information there, and not say anything else until the RfA goes live. - Dan Dank55 (send/receive) 18:23, 24 November 2008 (UTC)
Looked at the WP:ER page, and I'm pessimistic that I could get a quick response there, I'll just go learn some stuff (mostly XfD) and then take the plunge. - Dan Dank55 (send/receive) 19:48, 24 November 2008 (UTC)
Well, considering I request that information from him, is that still Canvassing? Anyways, Dan, I think you're fine to go for RfA. Best of Luck to you. - Jameson L. Tai talkguestbookcontribs 20:30, 24 November 2008 (UTC)
That's where it becomes a little murky... people at rfA can be a finicky crowd.---Balloonman PoppaBalloon 21:09, 24 November 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, I can confirm that with personal experience. Let the record show that I requested this information from the RfA candidate, hence not necessarily canvassing. Please feel free to contact me via IRC for more details. - Jameson L. Tai talkguestbookcontribs 02:09, 25 November 2008 (UTC)

Dan's RfA

Hey James, I removed your !vote from Dan's RfA, he hasn't transcluded it yet, so it hasn't gone live. Which is why there are no answers yet ;-)---Balloonman PoppaBalloon 18:17, 24 November 2008 (UTC)

I'm sorry I'm really out of it. My car got broken into on Saturday and I haven't been able to really focus on anything since then... Thanks for the fix and heads up. - Jameson L. Tai talkguestbookcontribs 20:28, 24 November 2008 (UTC)

Re: Barnstar

Yeah, sorry. I've been so busy with life I completely spaced on it. My girlfriend was in a really bad car accident and totaled our car. She's fine, just shook up, and now we are carless. So I've been trying to figure out how to get back on our feet in that regard. I'll be in over the vacation break, be sure of it :) -- Tyler D Mace (talk · contr) 17:31, 25 November 2008 (UTC)

Wow... I'm sorry to hear that. My car was broken into on Saturday, so I'm in a similar predicament with the police, insurance companies, rental cars, filing evidence, suspending services, report stuff stolen...etc... all that good stuff. I'm glad you two are ok. Let me know whenever you're ready to come back. - Jameson L. Tai talkguestbookcontribs 22:39, 25 November 2008 (UTC)

Re- Robo UBX

I went to delete the userbox on the talkpage but then realized that some userpages have the userbox which is on the talkpage of the actual template. It was messing things up.

WP:BOOSTER incivility

Thank you for pouring some oil on the waters over at WP:BOOSTER. The level of name-calling and inflammatory rhetoric has been on the rise, and everybody needs to calm down a bit :-) RossPatterson (talk) 00:34, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

You meant the other way around? lolz I don't think it's grounds to call it incivility yet, but it is starting to get a little heated where editors are getting singled out.  :) - Jameson L. Tai talkguestbookcontribs 00:37, 3 January 2009 (UTC)
Whatever the phraseology, I liked your "let's be productive here" attitude :-) RossPatterson (talk) 06:06, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

Chartplotter Article

I'd like some clarification on the part of the article that you think you needs work. My suggested re-write is the topmost on the Talk page. I have not altered the existing article. —Preceding unsigned comment added by AlcoS4 (talkcontribs) 03:44, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

I would like some clarification on what section needs to be fixed. Note: I haven't changed the wiki entry at all; I've only proposed the rewrite. P.S.: Sorry if this NoOb messed up your talk page. AlcoS4 (talk) 03:58, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

I've moved your proposed changes to a new page so it looks more clean. I've alerted this on Chartplotter's talk page. I'll take a look at steps that could help you down the road in a bit, but I need some food. I'll be back later. If you use IRC, you may request help at #wikipedia-en-help connect. - Jameson L.

Notwithstanding the current debate at University of California, Berkeley, I was disappointed by the amount of collaboration there for COTM. Any ideas for the next round? Perhaps having an explicit goal/deadline, like WP:GAC? Madcoverboy (talk) 02:16, 6 January 2009 (UTC)

As discussed on the COTM's talk page, I have extended Cal's COTM-period until the end of January. Due to my consecutive WikiBreaks I was not able to launch the program properly. Hope this helps a little bit. As to your suggestion of introducing new standards, please let me know what your thoughts are. I'm currently in ATL on layover so I can head back to Florida. I will be on #wikipedia-en-robotics connect, which you are free to chat with other WP:UNI users since I'm the channel op. We can discuss these improvement standards in depth there. - Jameson L.

Orphaned non-free media (File:2007 the crimson format switch.png)

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:2007 the crimson format switch.png. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 05:04, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

Your recent undo of my edits to Manningham City Council page

Hi Jameson. I have to disagree with your categorisation of vandalism for my recent edit (done as an unregistered user, subsequently redone as user bettermanningham). I am in fact Councillor Ivan Reid and the three edits I undertook, I believe to be valid and factual: 1. adding link to my council-related blog under external links; 2. changing order of councillors' names (to reflect order in which we were elected, which is customary and can be confirmed at the official victorian election commission website; 3. turning my name into a hyperlink to my blog (similar to the pre-existing link for one of my fellow councillors). Feel free to confirm my identity, or respond to me by e-mailing me at my official council address: Have a great day! Councillor Ivan Reid. Bettermanningham (talk) 12:18, 10 January 2009 (UTC)

Councilman Reid, without actually confirming your identity, please read our policies and guidelines here on Wikipedia. We have a specific point regarding placing blog external links (even in its best intentions - please read WP:NOTMYSPACE, WP:NOT#WEBHOST, and since you are posting information/links about yourself, please also refer to our policies regarding conflict of interest and neutrality - WP:NPOV and WP:COI. I understand your frustration and hope that after reading how Wikipedia works and what standards we as a community inspect and correct information that you will understand why the links were removed. The vandalism message is a standardized message that is sent via an anti-vandalism program called Huggle. The degree of vandalism is not measured, but the severity of the message increases every time a user repeatedly offends. I hope you have an enjoyable weekend. - Jameson L.

Thanks on help with understanding wikiprojects but I need a little bit more....

Thanks for your recent post on my talk page. I want to add Chemetco to the wiki project on business ethics which is a subset of social sciences wiki project. That's to say, this is the most appropriate category I can think of! But what if I'm wrong? On the face of it, this is about a company, but it doesn't fit into 'business' because the company no longer exists and is notorious for its behaviour, not what it produced.

Have a good day. I really appreciate your expertise here.Astral Highway (talk) 12:57, 11 January 2009 (UTC)

I have been looking into this. It looks like the List of ethics topics do not really contain particular cases of business ethics (especially not companies that violated such). I looked at Enron and they don't have anything specifically on ethics as a WikiProject or as a Task Force. If I have misunderstood what you're talking about, or if you found a WikiProject that I'm not aware of, please let me know again. In the mean time, I have added WikiProject Companies and WikiProject Business templates on Talk:Chemetco and left it unassessed. While I could assess the article, I have not fully read what each of their assessment standards are, so in short of pissing them off :) I'll just leave it be. Please let me know if you require further assistance. Have a great Sunday! - Jameson L. Tai talkguestbookcontribs 14:28, 11 January 2009 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Requests for adminship/Itsmejudith

Hello. Please forgive the spam but since Wikipedia:Requests for adminship/Itsmejudith is heading toward a very close decision, I'm contacting all editors who were in the "Neutral" section in the hope that they can take a second look at the RfA and make a more explicit recommendation (either way). Thank you, Pascal.Tesson (talk) 18:27, 17 January 2009 (UTC)

I don't think it is appropriate to have other editors ask to have a candidate's RfA !vote reconsidered. You are assuming that the voter has not properly expressed interest in the candidate's qualification and prematurely voted - in which case, the voter should not have voted at all. Please be mindful of the decisions editors make on RfAs. When a !vote is cast, asking for a vote to be changed is extremely inappropriate and I would actually consider that WP:CANVASSING. - Jameson L. Tai talkguestbookcontribs 19:32, 17 January 2009 (UTC)
I have noted on that RfA under my vote regarding your edit on my talk page. I will not report you directly to the crats, but I would strong suggest you to stop. - Jameson L. Tai talkguestbookcontribs 19:34, 17 January 2009 (UTC)

Hi there

I'm getting confused !!

So it was you who responded to my "Help" request ?? If so i gave your well-earned praise to someone else !!

If that is the case, then -
Thanks very much for fixing that !!

cheers Chaosdruid (talk) 17:36, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

Yup, I fixed it.  :) And you're most certainly welcome. Let me know if you need help again. - Jameson L. Tai talkguestbookcontribs 17:37, 18 January 2009 (UTC)


Thanks for asking

Nope, please delete, I kept deleting bits and pieces from user pages and sandbox and after about 20 mins brain damage keeping track of what to and what not to keep I realised I could have just twinkled it, pretty strange that the first time I use it is on my own work lol

Could I have used twinkle to delete myself as it's not a chat page ?

Cheers, Chaosdruid (talk) 21:50, 20 January 2009 (UTC) P.S. Hope you had good holiday before your "deletion"

You can just use WP:CSD#G7. - Jameson L. Tai talkguestbookcontribs 23:17, 20 January 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for that info - I spent about an hour looking through searches and articles just to find the tag I used lol
(and that was after I already found it yesterday !!} I was about to ask you when I came across it again.
What part of robotics do you work in ? It is a fascinating field to be working in these days, I would have loved the chance to work on something like mapping and AI. I cannot imagine how it must be now we have minituarisation of components, like gyro's, and the expansion of processing powers coupled with the understanding of thought processes.
I find the work being done on FMRI quite intriguing, especially one experiment i saw about tonal responses and the surprising directions the pathways interact - keep up the good work !!
Chaosdruid (talk) 23:38, 20 January 2009 (UTC)
Yup ! you made me do it - I joined , it's a lovely userbox !!

Wow, another robotics guy. It's good to know when I see people interested in robotics. You should join WP:ROBO. It's a relatively small group of editors focused in editing robotics articles. You should check it out some time! :) Next time instead of researching for hours going fruitless - just send me a message.  :) - Jameson L. Tai talkguestbookcontribs 03:23, 21 January 2009 (UTC)
I'll definitely take a look at that page and if they have a nice animatronic user box, I'll join !! lol
I'll also bear you kind offer in mind next time my head falls off from researching for too long - I've just had to read about 2 hours of naming conventions due to a silly dispute over a name !! whats in a name !!
As for robotics, I blame Asimov for my interest as well as a desire to see guide dogs for the blind free to run in the fields and chase butterflies !
Thanks for replying, and I will follow your link tomorrow, and join - oh hang on Chaosdruid (talk) 03:30, 21 January 2009 (UTC)

one tard has added template of speedy deletion, and later article was deleted. And I have question, how to revert deleted data? Bcoz as I see, history couldnt saved. here is an article btw here in the first line of the result, u would see a beginning of deleted article..what a pity that hadnt cached at google. anyway, there must be a category when article should "speedy delete" and admins or some1 else must vote for deleete or make a decision. I don't believe that article can be delete and data of that article too. there must be a log or history somewhere, but where? —Preceding unsigned comment added by UnholyFreezz (talkcontribs) 10:33, 21 January 2009 (UTC) - Unholy Freezz talkguestbookcontribs —Preceding undated comment was added at 10:22, 21 January 2009 (UTC).

Here's my take on things:
  • Ironholds is not a tard
  • Your article was deleted via WP:CSD#A7, which meant your article data did not contain enough assertion of notability or importance of the band. Google search results aside, please read WP:NOT#MYSPACE as well as the several other notices regarding garage bands trying to self-promote via Wikipedia.
  • You may seek an administrator (I am not an admin) to request deleted data be sent to you if you are nice when you request the information (and not calling people tards)
  • CSD is generally a process where a "new page patroller" (refer to WP:NPP) nominates an article for deletion and an administrator takes a look at the reason of CSD the nominator requests to delete - and makes a decision to delete. Generally articles that are CSD deleted are the ones that are simply and blatantly violating Wikipedia's many policies and guidelines. You may find a comprehensive listing of these polices and guidelines via the light blue navibox on my user page near the top right corner named "Key Wikipedia Policies and Guidelines".
  • Thanks for stealing my
I hope this helps. - Jameson L. Tai talkguestbookcontribs 16:01, 21 January 2009 (UTC)

Your template for your talk/user pages.

Your template for the talk is overwriting my top (I do not use the typical wikipedia layout). Please adjust? It'll annoy more than help. Demortes (talk) 20:00, 21 January 2009 (UTC)

Sure. I'll need a little bit more details from you so I may adjust accordingly.
  • First, how did you end up on my talk page?
  • Second, what message were you trying to leave on my talk page?
  • Third, please let me know what formatting/view settings you have set so I may change the template so that it may fix (completely or make it so it's less annoying) in time. However, I'm not ditching the template.
Have a good day. - Jameson L. Tai talkguestbookcontribs 00:43, 22 January 2009 (UTC)

Thanks again for your participation. I am currently concentrating my efforts on the Wikification WikiProject. It's fun! Please visit the project and wikify a few articles to help clear the backlog. If you can recruit some more participants, then even better.

After the whole thing about user talk page messages, I am relieved that my comment did not change too many votes. - Jameson L. Tai talkguestbookcontribs 00:45, 22 January 2009 (UTC)
