Proposed deletion of Kinlock Shelter[edit]

The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section. A summary of the conclusions reached follows.
The result was Keep due to discussion below.-- Jo7hs2 (talk) 20:46, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

Ambox warning yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Kinlock Shelter, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process because of the following concern:

This rock shelter doesn't seem to be very notable.

All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because, even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached. Fangfufu (talk) 03:51, 22 December 2008 (UTC)

Disagree. The location has intrinsic cultural significance. It is mentioned or featured in several publications, has been featured in a television program on Alabama Public Television, and is well known to frequent visitors of Bankhead National Forest and Sipsey Wilderness, and the local native-american population. I will concede that the article could use some improvement, and I will carry out such improvement, but it is not worthy of deletion.Jo7hs2
I have completed several improvements to the article, and will continue to improve it. Jo7hs2 (talk) 18:50, 23 December 2008 (UTC)
Don't worry about this proposed deletion. I was sorting the backlog of new page that required to be patrolled. It is just that when I first googled about it, not a lot seemed to have come up. I have to apologise for my hastiness on putting on the wrong tag. I think the article is getting better. Next time I will be more careful on putting tags on. Fangfufu (talk) 19:03, 23 December 2008 (UTC)
No problem, I could have made it clearer in the article what the significance was, and I could have done a better job positioning references so that the article was more clearly sourced. Jo7hs2 (talk) 19:05, 23 December 2008 (UTC)
I just added a line regarding the site, feel free to delete, if you feel it doesn't fit in the article. Fangfufu (talk) 19:21, 23 December 2008 (UTC)
No, actually it is important to note that camping is currently prohibited there (also w/in .5mi of the nearby falls), because people often camp in rock shelters in Bankhead National Forest.Jo7hs2 (talk) 19:23, 23 December 2008 (UTC)

No, I knew. Just goofed. Jo7hs2 (talk) 17:40, 23 December 2008 (UTC)


What are Ulchee? it appears in the article Kinlock Shelter. I tried to google it, I couldn't find a lot information. Fangfufu (talk) 19:26, 23 December 2008 (UTC)

The Ulchee were a tribe of Native Americans. I don't think they were a particularly large or well documented tribe, so that might explain the lack of information. It is also possible they were a subset of Cherokee indians, but I don't really know much beyond that. I've only seen the name described as a tribe, nothing more. Jo7hs2 (talk) 02:00, 24 December 2008 (UTC)
Congratuations for finding the correct spellings!!! It has bothered me for a while. Fangfufu (talk) 00:50, 29 December 2008 (UTC)
And also, what's CCC? I might be able to add something. Fangfufu (talk) 19:28, 23 December 2008 (UTC)
The CCC was the Civilian Conservation Corps, which was a Great Depression era New Deal program in the United States. They constructed a variety of camps (both for work and recreation) and constructed a variety of buildings and features as a way of employing out of work Americans.

Welcome to WikiProject Alabama![edit]

Hi there! Welcome to the Alabama Project. We are glad to have you on board. I am JodyB, one of the members and an administrator here. If I can be of any assistance, please let me know. I live in Daphne, across from Mobile. JodyB talk 17:43, 24 December 2008 (UTC)

Glad to be with you. I just spent three years hiking and photographing Alabama while I was in school at Samford. I've left the state, but I'm slowly filtering what I know into Wikipedia. Jo7hs2 (talk) 22:45, 24 December 2008 (UTC)

Issues in deletion of Diazepunk[edit]

I seem to have screwed up in the nomination process, the article did not properly add into articles for deletion.Jo7hs2 (talk) 02:41, 27 December 2008 (UTC)

Problem solved. Apparently the capital letter in nomination screwed something up? Jo7hs2 (talk) 02:48, 27 December 2008 (UTC)

Essex bus route 804[edit]

I saw your shift of opinion on this AfD. Reading it, it struck me that it had struck you, and I wrote a comment after yours aimed at the author(s), that someone thinks this is important and has put a lot of effort into it, and has really done a nice job. Could this be a school project? Looking at the history, I don't think it is. But the article seems harmless even if it doesn't meet the normal criteria for inclusion. Forgetting the rules, how would it harm Wikipedia? Disk space is not expensive. But Google would likely give the Wikipedia entry on the search term prominence, so I suppose if the timetable changed or the route was canceled, people might find incorrect information. It might also encourage advertising in countries where there is more competition on bus routes. I don't see these as very strong negatives. On a scale of -100 to 100, I would rate this one as -3.

Maybe it is a school project, which is why I am writing here, not on the AfD page. Any thoughts or ideas? I really do not have strong opinions, apart from finding a way to avoid endless debates on the same subject. Aymatth2 (talk) 02:38, 22 January 2009 (UTC)

Eh, I'm holding out on any discussion of the article on the merits now that the AfD is such a horrible mess. I generally think that having an encyclopedia entry for every bus route is a little excessive when lists already exist, but that is an argument distinct from deleting non-notable bus routes. Jo7hs2 (talk) 03:40, 22 January 2009 (UTC)

It is a mess. I sort of want to find a more general way of resolving messes like this in the future. And I sort of think I should quit AfD debates for a while and go back to writing new articles on villages, rivers, islands, UFOs and other non-controversial topics. Loch Alsh is a peaceful place. Aymatth2 (talk) 04:24, 22 January 2009 (UTC)


Hi. I have reverted your recent edits to goldendoodle. At least two of them were helpful to the article. Mine went with the section it was in and the other showed a puppy, which is important because the appearance of these dogs changes a lot as they grow up. The third was a quality image. I understand the need to not have a billion images on the article, but let's not delete ones that are useful. Illinois2011 (talk) 23:28, 4 February 2009 (UTC)

Amateur Radio Association at the University of Maryland[edit]

I see that you're interested in amateur radio. I've been thinking about getting my license myself. Do you have any tips for me? Illinois2011 (talk) 00:41, 5 February 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for the advice. I already have the ARRL book, so I guess the next step is to find my local club. Illinois2011 (talk) 22:47, 5 February 2009 (UTC)

Mike Wozniak[edit]

I see you removed the Prod form the article. Why? ttonyb1 (talk) 01:39, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

Noted on ttonyb1 (talk) to see article talk. Jo7hs2 (talk) 01:44, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for the explanation. I don't believe he would survive the AfD (I am not convinced the articles support notability), but I will let someone else nominate. Enjoy... ttonyb1 (talk) 01:50, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

Emancipating Something New[edit]

Okay, I am going to try to find some references. Thanks for your help! NewAfrika (talk) 02:38, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

Not a problem, on the contrary. If the author can source the article then it should not be deleted. §FreeRangeFrog 02:59, 15 February 2009 (UTC)
By the way, the only reason why I tagged it was because I did a quick search on the subject title and found nothing. Zero hits. This is usually a big warning sign for hoaxes. However, in this case if we're talking about a French film from the 30s then I guess searching for the title in French would have been more productive :) §FreeRangeFrog 03:03, 15 February 2009 (UTC)
Left a message on the French equivalent to the Village Pump. We'll see if we get something from them. Otherwise, assuming no response from NewAfrika, I'll just prod it. §FreeRangeFrog 21:20, 21 February 2009 (UTC)
Agreed on the AfD vs PROD. The response I got from the French Wikipedia was that it's probably a hoax. We'll give it another day or so. §FreeRangeFrog 23:43, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

Mike Wozniak Edits[edit]

Hi, Thanks for deleting my post on Mike Wozniak.

If you took the time to look at the references I used, you would have found out that it was all correct. Please edit my style - but do not acuse me of vandalism when it was so well referenced. This was my first attempt to help the Wiki experiment. I am too busy to rewrite the whole page again. It took me ages. I am very demoralised. Please return the content as it was and I will tone down the style if you wish.

Best wishes, RhysRhys H Thomas (talk) 19:23, 12 April 2009 (UTC)

Masanori Hirasawa and Shohei Suzuki[edit]

Thanks for the quick work. I honestly don't know much on the subject... I just recent joined the Article Rescue Squad and thought that looked like a mighty fine article to attempt to save. If I find anything else, I'll be sure to add it in. I'm not sure it really helps the cause of saving the articles and proving notability, but on the MPC's Minor Planet Discoverers, they are listed as the 113th most prolific discoverers of Minor Planets. Unfortunately, since they seem to have stopped working in that capacity in 1998, the internet doesn't have much for me to find. -- PEPSI2786talk 01:44, 15 April 2009 (UTC)

Florida Whig Party[edit]

Yeah, I have no problem with leaving the Talk page the way it is. Who then was a gentleman? (talk) 01:03, 31 May 2009 (UTC)

What do you think about the block? I don't think it was appropriate, she seemed to be discussing her edits. Who then was a gentleman? (talk) 01:09, 31 May 2009 (UTC)

OK. I hope she continues to discuss after she comes back from her block. Who then was a gentleman? (talk) 01:20, 31 May 2009 (UTC)

I can buy that. Though one wonders, if this is not a state party of the main national party, why it was linked to from the main national party page. Who then was a gentleman? (talk) 01:25, 31 May 2009 (UTC)

If you want to revert it, go ahead, then I'll list it. Who then was a gentleman? (talk)

Wikipedia Campus Ambassadors wanted in Troy, Alabama[edit]

Hi! I'm leaving you this message because you're a member of WikiProject Alabama. The Wikipedia Ambassador Program is currently looking for Campus Ambassadors to help with Wikipedia assignments at Troy University, which will be participating in the Public Policy Initiative for the Spring 2011 semester. The role of Campus Ambassadors will be to provide face-to-face training and support for students on Wikipedia-related skills (how to edit articles, how to add references, etc.). This includes doing in-class presentations, running workshops and labs, possibly holding office hours, and in general providing in-person mentorship for students.

Prior Wikipedia skills are not required for the role, as training will be provided for all Campus Ambassadors (although, of course, being an experienced editor is a plus).

I know Alabama is a big state, but if you happen to live near Troy and you are interested in being a Wikipedia Campus Ambassador, or know someone else from Troy who might be, please email me or leave a message on my talk page.--Sage Ross - Online Facilitator, Wikimedia Foundation (talk) 16:28, 6 December 2010 (UTC)

WP:FOOD Needs You![edit]

Hi there Jo7hs2! I've noticed you have yourself listed as a member of the Food and Drink Wikiproject. Unfortunately it looks like the project has been slowly sliding into inactivity except for a couple of people. That makes me a sad potato, and nobody likes a sad potato amirite?

If you'd like to turn my frown upside down, can you do two small things?

First off, go here and add {{Tick}} (YesY) next to your name if you're still part of the project.

Second, go to the project talkpage and participate in a discussion about how to make the project more active, and how to go about making articles in our area of interest a lot better.

You don't want to make me cry, do you? Potatoes have a lot of eyes you know. So come on, join in! :)
