Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are a few good links for newcomers:

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! By the way, you can sign your name on Talk and vote pages using three tildes, like this: ~~~. Four tildes (~~~~) produces your name and the current date. If you have any questions, see the help pages, add a question to the village pump or ask me on my Talk page.

Wikipedia format[edit]

If you are going to add articles to Wikipedia, could you please make sure they are formatted according to the Wikipedia guidelines? See fx Gerbil for an example of how fx Gerbillus nancillus should look. Thue | talk 20:01, 13 August 2005 (UTC)

Argonaut 781[edit]

I have cleaned up this and a couple of your other Argonaut articles by adding a proepr stub tag, and making the format a bit more standard for wikipedia. Please take a look at what I did, and consider followign standard foramtting a bit more in future. In particualr, please try to write in complete sentances. Please do not abbreviate dates, see WP:MOS for more on date formats. when a full date is given (day, month, and year) please link so date preferenmces can be applied. there is IMO no reason to link a year standing alone, although some people do. Alternate names of a person or ship should be in bold within the first sentance if possible, as should the main name of the article. Ship names are also in italics. Thanks for your contributions.

Hi, thanks for the the little table thing (NumismaticWikiProject-Member), thats neat. Anyways, just wanted to let you know where I stand and where I want to go. First, I'm really new in contributing to Wikipedia, so I must learn along the way.  :) My personal intersts lie in U.S. paper currency and world(inlc. US) bullion. I would like to see a glossery of terms for easy reference first. All beginners and most experienced amatuers still need a refresher now and then. But I was thinking some people might think a glossery would be better off in Wikitionary. As long as I can get to it, while reading articles, is what I would want. After that, I'll probly start on bullions, I think I have more references on that, but if you would like something else, let me know. :)

Joe I 22:11, August 26, 2005 (UTC)

Hey, is there a list of current articles and stubs for the entire project, or do I need to go a-huntin'? Joe I 02:21, 20 September 2005 (UTC)


Oh dear, I'm starting to leave messages on my own talk page. Johann Wolfgang 17:54, 1 September 2005 (UTC)


Hey, nice vitalsigns/wikistress page, very cool. Anyways, I only do this at work, and we're very busy, wish I could help more. I just now got a few good books in the office to start with, hopefully have something soon...(pray)  :)

Joe I 22:35, September 6, 2005 (UTC)


I do no know if you are the person who is continually changing the web page relating to me at "Avram". I do not know if it is you or George Cruikshank or Gene Poole, or you are all the same person, but I find it offensive and part fact and fiction. No one from there has tried to verify any facts with me and it appears they are not interested in facts. Could all the above be stopped from puting their apparent brand of fiction on that page.

The Grand Duke of Avram

  • To the Grand Duke of Avram,

I am not responsible for that article, I only fixed the formatting and added a stub. I'm not sure if it can be stopped however.I do not know anything about the topic of the article. You could edit the article yourself, if you've not already done so.

List of Spanish Regions[edit]

Hi! Thanks for putting the "stub" on my new page. As you can tell I'm a newbie. Regards. Nelson50 19:01, 14 September 2005 (UTC)

Thanks of the fix[edit]

Lunner church looks much better now! Agtfjott 22:26, 14 September 2005 (UTC)


Updated DYK query Did you know? has been updated. A fact from the article Flying dragon, which you recently created, has been featured in that section on the Main Page. If you know of another interesting fact from a recently created article, then please suggest it on the "Did you know?" talk page.


About time I did something. :) Should(hopefully) have it finished tonight. Turned out to be longer than I thought. :) I plan for one more this week, tryin to kick my butt into gear. Joe I 01:42, 22 September 2005 (UTC)

thanks for the typo. i go so quick sometimes :) anyways, west point and phili mints are done, im pooped :) done for the week. first two original articles :)


The {{playwright-stub}} is deprecated and in the process of being removed. In the future please use {{writer-stub}} (or one of the subtypes based on region or nationality). If the author is primarily known for writing for the theatre then also using the {{theat-stub}} is recommended. Caerwine 09:31, 25 September 2005 (UTC)

My RfA[edit]

Mr. Wolfgang-- I appreciate your support in my RfA. Although it appears, at this point, to be headed the way of "no consensus", I hope you will think about supporting me again in the future. Many people, as you may have seen, said they would support me in a few months, so I may just have to take my lumps and try again later. Thanks for your time. --Lord Voldemort (Dark Mark) 19:49, 29 September 2005 (UTC)


hey, your copyright tag on your images, why did you use that and not an all free one? is that one I can use in wikicommons, or do you know? Joe I 00:07, 1 October 2005 (UTC)

ok, are the images catagorized, like image:numismatic, or just general like image:coin such?

ha, i'm havin enough trouble just findin a copyright tag, i dont think i should stick my head in that mess. :) anyways, thnx, ill have some pics up this weekend sometime. Joe I 00:34, 1 October 2005 (UTC)


The only ones I took pictures of so far is a 2001 "walkin liberty"(I call them) American Eagle Silver proof, and a stupid "gold quarter"(quater, gold plated), that i thought was a 5 dollar gold coin. I took pics of a two dollar bill as well. Was planning to get some more pics before I upload them tho, but don't know which ones. Joe I 02:37, 1 October 2005 (UTC)


Hello spam list, look at this. Essjay is the new leader of Esperanza, and I'm interested in seeing how he runs it. I'm busy doing other work... Please comment at that talk page there. I will still probably run the spamlist though. Redwolf24 (talk) 22:58, 2 October 2005 (UTC)

Advisory Committee election deadline set[edit]

Our new admin general, Essjay, has set the date for the advisory committee elections, that date being October 7th. By UTC it is October 5th right now. So see WP:ESP/E for voting in two days, and add yourself to the list if you're interested in running. On a personal note, I'm considering running, as I only resigned as admin general because of time. I'm sure I could help out on the advisory committee... Anywho, watchlist that page, and be sure to read the voting method too. Regards, Redwolf24 (talk) 01:09, 5 October 2005 (UTC)

(no title)[edit]

Mr. Wolfgang,

Is there anyway to write a new article, or am I only allowed to edit exsisting ones?

Your running a great site!

Re: Copyvio[edit]

You certainly may. Just follow the instructions on the template, and make sure you list it at WP:CP. -- Essjay · Talk 03:07, 6 October 2005 (UTC)

I did that already, although I tagged it as {{db-copyvio}}. But for next time, don't wait if you spot one, go ahead and tag it yourself. Titoxd(?!?) 03:21, 6 October 2005 (UTC)

Bohuslav Chňoupek[edit]

I'd removed the battery of stubs you put in the article. The article is short but covers whole life and all activities. The person was of somehow important but not enough to have much of coverage in media or internet (he got almost forgotten during last 15 years). If there's big full article with all the details it would be on Slovakian Wiki. But Chnoupek's biography needs to be written and published first. Pavel Vozenilek 19:45, 10 October 2005 (UTC)

I removed the stubs. There are around dozen of regulars here who may edit Czech and Slovak related pages. I guess none of them is interested in a former communist diplomat and writer. I wrote the item because decades ago I read one of his books. In several years this topic will be covered by Slovakian Wiki and then it will spill over here. Until then the information is far enough, IMHO. Pavel Vozenilek 00:45, 11 October 2005 (UTC)


Hey, sure I wouldn't mind. The pics I took of coins turned out like crap, so we'll see how these do. But I'll try to get em this week. This article needs lots of work, but I'm trying to get some basics nailed down with my QA department. Try this page for starters [1] 19:57, 11 October 2005 (UTC) opps, not logged on Joe I

Wikipedia 1.0 Project[edit]

hey, Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Numismatics was asked of any articles to recomend. I would like to see Philadelphia Mint be on there, good content, historical, whatnot. Not sure on your articles, cause I dont think I've read any :(. Anyways, maybe we should work on a few to be able to recommend. Joe I 01:38, 12 October 2005 (UTC)

Need Input[edit]

Here Please :) User:Searchme/SandBox
PS can you tell me why the right table is not aligning to the top? Joe I 20:59, 12 October 2005 (UTC)

ChunkyMonkey there redid it and just deleted that line, I went in and added another, about joining and such. Joe I 03:30, 14 October 2005 (UTC)

Wiki projects[edit]

Is that the only info there is on the proposals? i'm wondering if the currencies aren't gonna have numismatics in it. doesn't sound like it from the summary tho. Wikinumis or Wikicoins sounds ok, but maybe a broader catagory like Wikihobbies or something. Joe I 19:31, 14 October 2005 (UTC)

oh, how do you get your signed name a different color? do you still just sign with the 4 tidles or is it a big rigamarole? Joe I 19:33, 14 October 2005 (UTC)


Hope you don't mind, im adding a few things to WikiProject:Numismatics. Nothing deleted or changed. Gimmie a few more mins tho, then I'll be done. And feel free to fix typos :) I hate doing that :) Joe I 19:46, 14 October 2005 (UTC)


Thnx about the into. I din't see anything in prefences about color or whatnot. Do I have to click Raw Signature? If so, where do I input the wikitext of what I want signed, did't see any inout box. Joe I 20:07, 14 October 2005 (UTC)

You mean like this? Joe I 21:57, 14 October 2005 (UTC) haha, took me long enough, but got it, now im off to find a color! :)
oh, and thnx :) Joe I 21:58, 14 October 2005 (UTC)


Speaking of colors, I would like to have a new one for that infobox. That goldenrod just seems to drab. I know it's about as close to gold as we can get and black type looks good on it, but...any suggestions? Joe I 22:35, 14 October 2005 (UTC)


Do you have this on your watchlist? Wikipedia:WikiProject_Numismatics/Participants Joe I 23:38, 14 October 2005 (UTC)

Esperanza Spam[edit]

Hello Esperanzians! A few announcements.

The Advisory Committee election results are in. In tranch A are Acetic Acid and Flcelloguy. In tranch B are Ryan Norton and Bratsche.

My other annoouncement is that our founder, JCarriker, has founded Esperanza's sister project, Wikipediology. I have written two essays here (my name is Matt Binder). My essays are under Teenage Wikipedians and Anon Editors.

On behalf of myself and Jay Carriker and the other wikipediologists, I would appreciate it if you were to join.

Cheers Esperanza! Redwolf24 (talkHow's my driving?) 23:34, 15 October 2005 (UTC)


Thank You for the wonderful award and recognition. Now I feel like i need to actually write a few more articles. :) Anyways, thnx.
I thought about adding an archive section, but I hate keeping old stuff around anywhere. The IRC link isn't workin, not sure if its just my comp, the site, or the link, tho. Joe I 20:55, 17 October 2005 (UTC)

Re: IRC[edit]

You're welcome to come back to the channel, we're not angry or anything. My guess is that your client went nuts and kept sending messages, since you signed off right after that. No hard feelings, and we hope to see you back shortly. -- Essjay · Talk 21:45, 17 October 2005 (UTC)


Oh, I see. I had heard of it, but never used it. Anyways, all I have right now is a work computer, so I can't put anything on it. I may be gettin cable modem at home for a Christmas present,so we'll see. :) Joe I 20:45, 18 October 2005 (UTC)


LOL. This seems like the never-ending project. I had no idea there could be so many articles out there. Anyways, once I get all the ones I can find tagged, I might go start on an actuall article. :) Joe I 01:08, 19 October 2005 (UTC)

I was very insulted that you deleted my insightful addition to the gingerbread man article. That's all. No. That's not all actually. My friend is feeling pretty yucky right now and that's the only way she can describe how sick she feels: "yucky". So with the hope that Wikipedia has eveeerything, I looked up illness. It didn't have much. Verry disappointing. Yes, indded (that was intentional i have very excellante spelling skills, I mean how can I not when i've watched the Spelling Bee a brazillion times?).

im sorry. i am kind of new to the whole wiki concept, so i am still getting a sence of what belongs and what does not. i was confused when i added my piece and it wasn't there, so i thought i did something wrong. sorry if you thought i was being annoying or stubborn.

My opposition to your RfA[edit]

Hi, thanks for the note. Don't take my opposition as the final word on the matter- I just haven't seen enough to be confident of your grasp on policy. On the other hand, we haven't interacted (at all, if I remember correctly), so I really don't know you aside from looking at your edit history. Others who know you better, or feel differently may disagree. Anyway, I just wanted you to know that it isn't anything personal; you seem like a solid contributer.--Scïmïłar parley 22:57, 7 November 2005 (UTC)

I am glad you did not take my opposition personally. I have some concerns regarding the rush with which sysop rights are being granted lately, which generally happens once the editor reaches his 3rd/4th month, which I find a little too distant from my personal ideal of six or so months of activity. If by some reason your vote begins to lean dangerously to failure I will switch to neutrality, though. Regards, --Sn0wflake 02:12, 8 November 2005 (UTC)

Hi Johann. Thanks for your comment. I'm sure you'll still become an admin despite my objection. I tend to vote oppose to inexperienced editors because there is a huge splurge of admins being created at the moment (like Sn0wflake said), particularly from the CVU. If by some chance you don't make it this time, I'll support you in a few months. Proto t c 14:57, 9 November 2005 (UTC)

Thanks for supporting my RfA[edit]

I know I've been slow in saying this, but thanks for supporting my request for adminship. It was an honor to be both nominated and approved as an admin. If there is ever any adminish (is that a word :-) things you need help with, please let me know. --Alabamaboy 16:39, 8 November 2005 (UTC)

Greek Reconstructionism article[edit]

Just wanted to drop by to say thanks. - 65

Re: Greek Reconstructionism[edit]

Hello -

I saw that you edited /reverted entries at Greek Reconstructionism. I would like to direct you to this (section 3:35) and this (section 4:10). I would appreciate it if you would contribute to resolving this dispute rather than just reverting entries. Thanks! Cyberdenizen 00:50, 9 November 2005 (UTC)

FireFox RFA[edit]

Johann Wolfgang/Archive 1

Thanks for your support on my request for adminship.

The final outcome was (96/2/0), so I am now an administrator. If you ever have any queries about my actions, please do not hesitate to contact me. Again, thanks!

Your RfA[edit]

I appreciate your polite note. I look forward to supporting you in a future nomination (if such is even necessary.) Best wishes, Xoloz 16:40, 9 November 2005 (UTC)

RfA Vote[edit]

I have no doubt that you will make a good Administrator. The primary reason for my vote, as I said in my commentary, was that I felt that your lack of time with Wikipedia might be a bit of a negating factor. This isn't to say that you won't overcome this hurdle quickly or anything -- judging by the community support you have achieved so far I would say that the community consensus is that you will do just fine. Good luck with your RfA vote (I think that you'll likely make it in), and I look forward to working with you in Wikispace! =) --Martin Osterman 18:44, 9 November 2005 (UTC)

I would note that the number of edits you have is outstanding. I wouldn't worry about edits if you have to do a go-around; just the time length would probably garner you a whole lot more positive votes (including mine). :) --Martin Osterman 18:56, 9 November 2005 (UTC)

A Question[edit]

Hi again

I do have one question that maybe you can help me with:

on the editing history, the previous edits are marked by the date, time, and sometimes the user. then, in light gray text, it says the part that they edited or created, if i am correct. but sometimes, i see bolder italic text, in which the editer explained the changes he/she did. i have iinvestigated, and i cannot find out how to leave that message.

if you can help me, please do.

also, i am a little confused, because you have a very complex page, and it seems like i see you everywhere. do all users have complex pages, or are some kind of higher athority on wikipedia?

thanks WikiNewbie

In your gallery is a note regarding this picture

. That would seem to be the reverse of the 1977 Queen's Silver Jubilee Crown. See here. (The giveaway was the ampulla and anointing spoon it depicts). - Nunh-huh 10:57, 10 November 2005 (UTC)

All I can say is you clearly have a more interesting basement than I do. I don't know much about numismatics, but the silver/gold metal/coloration difference is interesting. Just in case it isn't obvious, 1977 was the 25th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II's coronation (in 1953), and the 25th anniversary is traditionally silver. So that year was the "Silver Jubilee" with "silver" meaning 25th anniversary. Because of this, the metal used in minting the crown (British coin) that year was silver. 2002 was her Golden Jubilee (50th anniversary of her coronation), and the crowns were minted in gold (but the design was different). I don't know enough to say what you have for sure. This page seems to say that they were made in cupronickel and silver. Maybe yours is cupronickel? Maybe it's a difference in lighting in the picture on the web? Our page British Twenty-Five Pence coin has a picture that's pretty clearly silver. - Nunh-huh 23:11, 10 November 2005 (UTC)


thanks so much. i really appreciate it

You're a sysop![edit]

Hi, Johann Wolfgang/Archive 1, Congratulations on Becoming a Sysop
Original Barnstar.png

Hey there. I'm pleased to let you know that, consensus being reached, you are now an administrator! You've volunteered to do housekeeping duties that normal users sadly cannot participate in. Sysops can't do a lot of stuff: They can't delete pages just like that (except patent nonsense like "aojt9085yu8;3ou"), and they can't protect pages in an edit war they are involved in. But they can delete random junk, ban anonymous vandals, delete pages listed on Votes for deletion (provided there's a consensus) for more than one week, protect pages when asked to, and keep the few protected pages that exist on Wikipedia up to date.

Almost anything you can do can be undone, but please take a look at The Administrators' how-to guide and the Administrators' reading list before you get started (although you should have read that during your candidacy ;). Take a look before experimenting with your powers. Also, please add Administrators' noticeboard to your watchlist, as there are always discussions/requests for admins there. If you have any questions drop me a message at My talk page. Have fun! =Nichalp «Talk»=

Please also add your name to WP:LA. =Nichalp «Talk»= 06:30, 13 November 2005 (UTC)

Your nomination fell within the 75-80% range, which entitles a bureaucrat use his discretion to promote the candidate. I have outlined my reasons on your RFA talk page if anyone is interested. Since most of your RFA oppose votes are based on time, I suggest you be cautious in using your new powers. Regards, =Nichalp «Talk»= 06:45, 13 November 2005 (UTC)
