UNC-CH vandal[edit]

I'm trying to get the person who does the history, "North Carolina" etc. vandalism blocked. So far they've used these IPs that I'm aware of: (talk • contribs • deleted contribs • nuke contribs • logs • edit filter log • block user • block log) (talk • contribs • deleted contribs • nuke contribs • logs • edit filter log • block user • block log) (talk • contribs • deleted contribs • nuke contribs • logs • edit filter log • block user • block log) (talk • contribs • deleted contribs • nuke contribs • logs • edit filter log • block user • block log)

If you want to help do this, please post warnings when they vandalise, try to get admin attention, etc. Thanks! Light in Water 13:33, 5 January 2006 (UTC)

Oldest State University[edit]

Yes, you are right about there being a detailed explanation of the charter vs operation issue. Also, I did write a statement in the talk page before I changed the official page. I had assumed that universities begin operating right after they are chartered. 15:06, 16 January 2006 (UTC)


Hi. You've been deleting the link from Interjection to speaker. This is a mistake, since "Speaker" is not only a disambiguation page AND there is still no specific article on speaker (linguistics). Please stop or at least give arguments. Velho 17:26, 17 January 2006 (UTC)

Hmm... You might be right. Velho 02:27, 18 January 2006 (UTC)

Done. It definitely needs wotk, and I had it on my to-do, but he's all yours. Alansohn 17:56, 17 January 2006 (UTC)

grand slam link is fine now[edit]

Its pointing to the correct page now.

Grand slam[edit]

Grand slam is not the name of the rugby union six nations championship. A grand slam is when one team goes through a 6N championship without losing or drawing a single game. I have corrected the relevant pages.GordyB 16:11, 20 January 2006 (UTC)

The six nations page does fully explain what a grand slam is. There has been a need for a Grand slam (rugby union) page for some time but I have never got around to creating it, hence the link points to a disambiguation page. I have corrected the new entry slightly as confusingly there are two entirely different sports called 'rugby'. The term 'Grand slam' is used in rugby union but not in rugby league.GordyB 13:55, 21 January 2006 (UTC) blocked[edit]

You are, of course, correct. Sorry, the mutliple headings and warnings between the test3 and your test4 got in the way. I've blocked for a month, since the previous block was for two weeks. Thanks for the note, Deathphoenix 20:53, 31 January 2006 (UTC)

Oh, and just to let you know, in my opinion, for repeat vandals, you probably don't need to put any sort of warning if they vandalise again: just list them on WP:AIV. --Deathphoenix 20:54, 31 January 2006 (UTC)

It has been a few days...I will unprotect to see what happens now. That vandals should be gone. The score change dispute will hopefully not lead to a revert war.Voice-of-AllT|@|ESP 23:15, 25 February 2006 (UTC)

Bias, Radical Newspapers, and Vandals[edit]

I regret what transpired and the allegations made. You were right to call me on certain violations. I wish you well.Firmitas 01:14, 3 March 2006 (UTC)


My mistake; I misread the date of the last warning. Still, the user has stopped; feel free to repost if it happens again. :) RadioKirk talk to me 14:16, 12 May 2006 (UTC)

Gary Howell[edit]

There is no copywrite violation. I wrote most of the imdb entry as well as the wiki entry. This afd is political vandalism. If you look the wiki and imdb are not even the same to cause a copywrite violation. The wiki article has info not in the imdb article. All the info is correct. Signed Gary Howell aka --71Demon 15:51, 13 May 2006 (UTC)

  • Please do not vandilise the article again. It now has a protection lock and admins have been notified. --71Demon 16:20, 13 May 2006 (UTC)

Franklin St[edit]

Good idea, I hadn't considered adding it to speedy deletions because it wasn't nonsense or anything, just non-notable — but that's pretty much what A7 says, doesn't it? I'm going to add a speedy-delete tag to this; you can re-vote under the new section if you want. Thanks! — Larry V (talk) 18:39, 2 June 2006 (UTC)

Jesse Ragan deletion nomination[edit]

Hi, I have received notice from you regarding the page I began about Jesse Ragan. First, I am not the man, nor have I met him. I began the article because as a professor of typography I felt his work significant, and that he had achieved work of lasting merit fairly early in his life. He has been several time recognized by the American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA) (the national professional organization for graphic deisgners), his work has appeared in respected design periodicals, he has lectured on typography and his own work at several Association of Independent Colleges of Art and Design (AICAD) institutions.

Several days ago I noticed removal of his name from credits for typefaces on the Tobias Frere-Jones article. My first thought was that some disagrement might have occured between Ragan and his former employers Hoefler & Frere-Jones, perhaps leading to a nomination for deletion. Mr. Hoefler wrote to me publicly on my talk page that Jesse Ragan was only one of many who worked on the project. That may be the case, but would not discredit typefaces Ragan has produced entirely on his own, or the two mentions of his contributions to the Gotham typeface on the AIGA web site. Clearly, at some point someone at Hoefler & Frere-Jones thought Ragan's contributions significant enough to provide his name (and not the rest of that team) to our national professional organization. The fact that Mr. Ragan is now independent and a competitor to other type foundries might be a part of this. But I have no knowledge of this. I know none of these people personally, and I respect the work of all of them as a review of my edit history will suggest. My primary reason for beginning the article is to increase the number of articles on typeface designers, and a secondary desire to increase the number of typography related articles in general. Jesse Ragan's work is very solid, even his own direct client list is impressive. In the world of typography, apprentices are historically given credit, witness Francesco Griffo who apprenticed to Aldus Manutius. It is my hope that Wikipedia will continue to make some room for subjects that though not block buster in scale are significant. CApitol3 20:11, 2 November 2006 (UTC)

James, I am not entirely clear, is it you who believes I wrote jesse Ragan about myself, or someone else? I am not the man, I am graphic deisgner and a teacher at the Art Institute of Boston. While I would love to be able to make type it is quite a diffeent profession from graphic design. Jim CApitol3 21:31, 2 November 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for the tip, I suppose it's nothoing very big in the scheme of thngs, I don't really know if this "Jesse" is male or female, but I do suspect that the person who nominated the page for deletion may be a competitor of Ragan's or former client/employer. Back to finding something less controversial to write about. CApitol3 14:25, 3 November 2006 (UTC)

Alt-S and Firefox 2.0[edit]

I was searching for a fix to the problem you mentioned, and found your complaint first. As it turns out, Firefox 2.0 has moved the default web page functions to ALT-SHIFT instead of ALT, so where alt-s used to save, alt-shift-s saves now. Boojum 03:34, 9 December 2006 (UTC)

Charles Johnson[edit]

Would you have any source for the birthyear that you gave for Congressman Charles Johnson? I cannot find any independent source for his birthyear, even after looking through the Edenton Cemetary Records. It would be good for a report I am issuing to the Congressional Biographical Directory. Thanks, Star Garnet (talk) 05:14, 27 June 2009 (UTC)

translation impossible?[edit]

There is a discussion going on whether the name of that German church body can be translated or not (it appears like this on the english pages of this church's homepage). One user changed the name of this Church (actually a federation of several Lutheran, United and Reformed churches) and it's regional member churches to the German form because he says their names can't get translated. so the article on the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Bavaria now appears under its German name because he says the "concept" can't be translated into English. Please go to the discusson page of the Evangelical Church in Germany and have your say --02:25, 3 March 2010 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk)
