Hawthorne Caballeros[edit]

So you have no problem with an article that says The Caballeros are a drum corps in DCA who like to perform fellatio on men. and women of cabs suck too. overall, cabs are gay? User:Zoe|(talk)` I do have a problem with that, and it should have been removed, but there was no need to delete the entire article. --JimBurnell 20:33, 7 June 2006 (UTC)

I can ressurect it, if you will put some text into it, because an article which only contains a taxobox is considered empty. User:Zoe|(talk) 20:58, 7 June 2006 (UTC)

As long as you don't mind if it's a very brief description of the corps, I will put something in it right away. I just haven't had time to flesh it out.--JimBurnell 21:04, 7 June 2006 (UTC)

OK, I've undeleted it. Go ahead and put something in there. User:Zoe|(talk) 22:27, 7 June 2006 (UTC)

I added a quickie stub so there's something there now. Thank you. --JimBurnell 22:48, 7 June 2006 (UTC)

You're welcome.  :) User:Zoe|(talk) 23:52, 7 June 2006 (UTC)

Frontier Drum and Bugle Corps[edit]

Fantastic work[edit]

You've done a fantastic job referencing the article.. I'm impressed that you have such a grasp of cite.php (the <ref></ref>) tags after such a short time working on the Wikipedia. Curious though.. why are some of the references placed as inline external links (ex:[1]) and the rest are cite.php refs (ex:[1])? Also, references should always go behind punctuation. That means, behind the punctuation that follows the clause that the reference is for.. so it can go in the middle of a sentence behind a comma or at the end of a sentence. -- drumguy8800 C T 23:15, 20 April 2007 (UTC)

Oh, and no, I don't play anymore. Sorry -- drumguy8800 C T 23:16, 20 April 2007 (UTC)

Well, there's sort of a funny gap between Start and B classes, as you'll see here. I'd actually say B-Class now that you've referenced it so wonderfully. Before that though, maybe you should add a picture .. ? Do you have any? -- drumguy8800 C T 07:00, 21 April 2007 (UTC)

Buccaneers[edit]

Their championships are listed in several different spots on there already. Can it be worked in a little better so that the article is not just a laundry list? That is what I was attempting to do with my edition of the page. Werecowmoo (talk) 16:07, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

My goal is just to provide the most factual information. My roommate, a Buccaneers Alumni from 2004, confirmed what the source said on their website and had no way to know they'd picked up an additional sponsor. I simply provided a citation to back up what was presented on their organization website. Did not see anything wrong with editing while attempting to improve the article.Werecowmoo (talk) 22:01, 4 December 2007 (UTC)

Atlanta CorpsVets[edit]

Apparently some people on Wikipedia want to delete the Atlanta CorpsVets page. Could you to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/Atlanta_CorpsVets and offer your opinion. Also, if you think the article can be improved please feel free to do that.WolfenUWG 16:32, 4 December 2007 (UTC)

Washington Blade[edit]

Saw both your messages. I think you're right, it's good to have something at the top of the article as well as the bottom. I will also add a breaking news template.--Larrybob (talk) 17:00, 16 November 2009 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of File:If Then Logo.png[edit]

A tag has been placed on File:If Then Logo.png requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the image is an unused redundant copy (all pixels the same or scaled down) of an image in the same file format, which is on Wikipedia (not on Commons), and all inward links have been updated.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Notification of automated file description generation[edit]

Your upload of File:Bucs2005.jpg or contribution to its description is noted, and thanks (even if belatedly) for your contribution. In order to help make better use of the media, an attempt has been made by an automated process to identify and add certain information to the media's description page.

This notification is placed on your talk page because a bot has identified you either as the uploader of the file, or as a contributor to its metadata. It would be appreciated if you could carefully review the information the bot added. To opt out of these notifications, please follow the instructions here. Thanks!
