Kotorkid[edit]

Looking at Kotorkid's contributions on HMHS Britannic, three hours seems too short for a block. Considering that their three and only edits were all vandalism, would you support an indef-block for vandalism-only account for them? SchuminWeb (Talk) 03:19, 4 July 2011 (UTC)

You delete pages that are little compared to bigger things![edit]

Do you realize how many people have pages & you keep deleting mine.

FYI, Kids4Fun, whom you blocked indefinitely, is back as Freesaveliy. I don't know what history there may be there, but didn't want to block the reincarnation myself since (1) I'm currently in a dispute with it and (2) since the reason for your block was vandalism and the user wasn't vandalizing, I didn't see a need to do so on any kind of emergency basis.

Camp X www.camp-x.com[edit]

Hello,

I am looking for niformation why Lynn Hodgson website has been blocked and the website of the self-proclaimed 'camp x historical society' is in its place?

Lynn Hodgson is well know to be the world's leading expert on Camp-X, he has authored almost every book on the subject and is the owner of the world's largest Camp-x artifact collection. Not to mention he has organized every major event(Anniversaries, soldier gatherings, etc.,) for the camp in the passed thirty years and continues to do FREE walking tours of the camp to this day.

I understand that Lynn's website is a little outdated, he is into his 70's now and maintains this himself, but I do not beleive that lack of W3C compliance is reason enough to block the link.

If you could please offer me some explanation as to why this has occured and how I may be able to assist in correcting this. I would REALLY appreciate it.

Thanks,

Dustin — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dtcraig (talkcontribs) 19:15, 12 July 2011 (UTC)


UPDATE

I am unsure of if or how this is proceeding. I would really like to see this remedied, as all the photos on this article are from Lynn Hodgson's personal collection, taken from his website and used on the wikipedia page. Why can we not have this ban reversed? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dtcraig (talkcontribs) 18:25, 3 August 2011 (UTC)

Hotter than Hades here in the City of Wind![edit]

Hey, just a heads up (pardon the silly heading) but this guy is on a crusade to start adding transit info to infoboxes (which in many cases -- such as the train lines that stop nowhere near the MSI -- is useless clutter) on Chicago museum articles. Noit sure where he's from, but he is obviously not familiar with the urban geography of Chicago or Cleveland, but he's carrying it over from a related edit war on a Cleveland museum article, so I figured you might want to be clued in. Thanks. Ryecatcher773 (talk) 18:21, 8 August 2011 (UTC)

The bus stops two-tenths of a mile away (or about a 4 minute walk), and the metra station is also three-tenths of a mile away (or about a 6 minute walk); click links for maps. Yes, I shall be adding useful public transit information, like those included on the respective museum websites. -Kai445 (talk) 13:17, 9 August 2011 (UTC)
Sorry for the delayed reply—I've not logged in the last couple of days. I generally think that infoboxes are over-used in Wikipedia; and I definitely think that they should usually be a summary of the pertinent facts from the article, and not contain information that is not found within the prose of the article. The MSI website is a primary source, so, per WP:RS, may be used as a source for information about the MSI, but not if that information is disputed. Also, inclusion in a primary source does not indicate noteworthiness and so if someone disputes the inclusion of that information in an article a reliable secondary source should be found or the information should be removed. At the moment public transit information takes up more than half the space in the MSI infobox, which I find pretty ridiculous. Both the infobox and the article body have a link to the museum website, where the information is readily available, so I don't see that there is much purpose served in filling up the infobox with it. I have to say that Kai445's additions to the infoboxes of Chicago museums seems very pointy, and if I didn't know better I'd say that you had done it just to annoy Ryecatcher773. —Jeremy (talk) 17:13, 11 August 2011 (UTC)

Alligator Gar[edit]

You deleted a link I added for Earthwave Society on the alligator gar page. Earthwave Society was the first organization to document the alligator gar on video, and have it televised internationally to become the #1 rated program on PBS. Footage from that documentary is still being licensed today by Nat Geo TV, and other renowned networks. It is the most comprehensive documentation of alligator gar ever produced on video. Contents are verifiable at www.earthwave.org/gar.htm so can you tell me why the link was deleted? Please contact me at betwills@mac.com — Preceding unsigned comment added by Atsme (talkcontribs) 22:17, 11 September 2011 (UTC)

Notable staff from Worksop College/Old WOrksopians[edit]

Why have you deleted Frank Dick and Herbert Jacob from notable staff. If you Google these two you will see they are well known.

Also, removing NM Hall from notable Old Worksopians because he does not have a corresponding Wikipedia page is a little naive. Surely being captain of the England rugby team makes you a notable Old Worksopian? It's this kind of senseless editing that really puts people off Wikipedia. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 141.241.70.190 (talk) 11:56, 5 October 2011 (UTC) Hi, please feel free to write articles that cite reliable sources on all these people. Once you have done that you can add them back to the list.—Jeremy (talk) 18:39, 7 October 2011 (UTC)

Categories for discussion nomination of Category:Music from Sheffield[edit]

Category:Music from Sheffield, which you created, has been nominated for discussion. If you would like to participate in the discussion, you are invited to add your comments at the category's entry on the Categories for discussion page. Thank you. Mike Selinker (talk) 22:00, 16 November 2011 (UTC)

Dear JeremyA,

I'm writing you regarding the "Felony Band" page.

The history shows the following "closing remarks" removed under the category "unnecessary".

CLOSING REMARKS "Jeffrey Scott Spry leaves behind from former marriage to Lucrecia Sarita Russo beloved step-son Tony Russo. From his second marriage to Tamara Rawlings Spry he leaves behind his beloved wife Tamara and their children, Desirae and Natasha Spry."

Please would you tell me why CLOSING REMARKS are under the "unnecessary" category?

Thank you for your time in this matter.

Sincerely,


Lucrecia S. RussoSpry

Thank you Jeremy. I will personally pay closer attention to the Wikipedia category format. This was very helpful. Thank you again.

Our Lady of Sorrows Basilica and National Shrine Link[edit]

Dear Jeremy,

You recently removed an external link I placed on the entry for Our Lady of Sorrows Basilica and National Shrine in Chicago. I have been traveling for 3 years collecting photographs of Roman Catholic Cathedrals and National Shrines to allow people the ability to see images of some of the great Catholic churches that unfortunately are often closed during the day other than for Mass for security reasons. I started the project to bring the beauty of these places to those who wouldn't otherwise see them. I have been linking in Wikipedia for a couple of years and have never had anyone remove the link as one being for "advertising". While my website does allow people to purchase images (they seldom do), it is not the main purpose of my site, and if this is the only reason you had for removing the link, I can easily disable the buy option on this gallery. The link is relevant to the Shrine as it provides the viewer with a very good and current gallery of images that will either educate them more on the Shrine, enable them to make a virtual visit through the images, or direct them to make their own visit to the Shrine. My photos have all been taken with permission by each of the churches visited and often through a personal tour by their staff which was the case at Our Lady of Sorrows Basilica last month.

For whatever it is worth, in addition to contributing imagery to supplement specific places, I have been a regular financial contributor to Wikipedia as well. I value both the content provided by Wikipedia and the ability to be an important contributor.

Kind Regards,

Apology[edit]

Hello, Several years ago I has posted to wikipedia an article that I foolishly thought to be relevant. It was a page about "Xalwine." I was using the name "Asquared" and "Xalwine" and I was very rude and juvenile. Looking back at what I said and did I feel nothing but shame and regret. I know this is 5+ years overdue, but I apologize for my actions and I hope you can forgive my immature past.

Early close for an article up for AfD?[edit]

Hi! I nominated an article for AfD, Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Stonewylde, and during the course of the discussion it was proposed that the article redirect to a new article about the author Kit Berry. The article has since been created and an editor has voiced their interest in further improving the page, so I was wondering if it's possible for you to close the AfD early since I have no problem withdrawing the nomination in favor of a redirect. Is it possible to do so or would I be able to create the redirect myself? I don't want to do anything without asking first.Tokyogirl79 (talk) 11:30, 20 January 2012 (UTC)tokyogirl79

MSU Interview[edit]

Dear JeremyA,

My name is Jonathan Obar user:Jaobar, I'm a professor in the College of Communication Arts and Sciences at Michigan State University and a Teaching Fellow with the Wikimedia Foundation's Education Program. This semester I've been running a little experiment at MSU, a class where we teach students about becoming Wikipedia administrators. Not a lot is known about your community, and our students (who are fascinated by wiki-culture by the way!) want to learn how you do what you do, and why you do it. A while back I proposed this idea (the class) to the community HERE, where it was met mainly with positive feedback. Anyhow, I'd like my students to speak with a few administrators to get a sense of admin experiences, training, motivations, likes, dislikes, etc. We were wondering if you'd be interested in speaking with one of our students.


So a few things about the interviews:

  • Interviews will last between 15 and 30 minutes.
  • Interviews can be conducted over skype (preferred), IRC or email. (You choose the form of communication based upon your comfort level, time, etc.)
  • All interviews will be completely anonymous, meaning that you (real name and/or pseudonym) will never be identified in any of our materials, unless you give the interviewer permission to do so.
  • All interviews will be completely voluntary. You are under no obligation to say yes to an interview, and can say no and stop or leave the interview at any time.
  • The entire interview process is being overseen by MSU's institutional review board (ethics review). This means that all questions have been approved by the university and all students have been trained how to conduct interviews ethically and properly.


Bottom line is that we really need your help, and would really appreciate the opportunity to speak with you. If interested, please send me an email at obar@msu.edu (to maintain anonymity) and I will add your name to my offline contact list. If you feel comfortable doing so, you can post your name HERE instead.

If you have questions or concerns at any time, feel free to email me at obar@msu.edu. I will be more than happy to speak with you.

Thanks in advance for your help. We have a lot to learn from you.

Sincerely,

Jonathan Obar --Jaobar (talk) 07:21, 12 February 2012 (UTC)

Edits to Sebastian Coe[edit]

Hello Jeremy,

I understand that my comments in some sense were unproductive but, the information posted about Lord Coe's involvement with an Energy Company which, is currently sponsoring the London Olympic Games 2012 is in fact liable through Purchase of another company for the worlds most horrific Chemeical Disaster. Though not widely publicised this is actual fct and the wider public should be made aware that the IOC will do business with companies which have still failed to own up the atrocities that lead to the death of nearly 15,000 people in India 27 years ago. Do you believe this is not fair fact or are you infact wiping it under the carpet to protect Lord Coe's image as a whole? I feel that everyone should be made aware that Lord Coe and the Olympic Organisation Commitee who define themselves on fairness and equality through sport, that they will allow companies with such appaulling records of human saftey and loss of human life which should be labelled as an extermination!

I understand you may block me for my views but, also I will state I will not edit this back into the topic but, allow you to do so.

If you would like to discuss this further I would greatly appreciate your responce.

Kind Regards

Eric Ian Spoutz article[edit]

The Eric Ian Spoutz article that you deleted was re-posted because additional third party credibility was added per wikipedia standards raised during the last discussion. Please reinstate this article. --Jhf44 (talk) 04:06, 18 February 2012 (UTC)

Jeremy, I re-posted the article with additional information including a feature newspaper article detailing the subjects notability within his field. You will also find many references to the Smithsonian and Library of Congress [and many others] in association with the subject. The article has been greatly altered since the time when it was originally deleted. Please see the talk page of the article for additional information. --Jhf44 (talk) 19:33, 23 February 2012 (UTC)

Artistic QR Code[edit]

Hello Jeremy A,

We created you an artistic QR code for your apps on the iphone and android market. Unfortunately it has to go through a redirect to work. Is there a way for us to still donate you an artistic code? We could make one for the mobile page if you prefer not use the Apps. We just would like people to know that artistic QR codes do exist.

ARTQR (talk) 18:07, 23 February 2012 (UTC)


I understand now. Also I changed the type of code so it strictly is directed to Wikipedia. I will redo the custom QR page and add more references. I didn't mean for it to seem like advertisement.
