Vandalism at Nantucket

Hi Jojalozzo, I note that the user at 86.2.39.250 has revandalized Nantucket in the same manner as the past with this and two subsequent edits. Are you able to restore the previous state of that section? Also, it would appear that a repeated warning and blocking may be in order. I'll watch here for a reply. Sincerely, User:HopsonRoad 18:19, 11 January 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for January 18

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited PCCW Solutions, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Telco (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Deleting a contribution to Decision making software, January 18

Hello. You deleted info I submitted about one more big DMtool that uses AHP, Minddecider. Thanks for stating the reason - unreliable source, if I'm not mistaken. But I'm interesting about how that all works: there is info, not verified at all, but still, it IS there. And the source I provided was for some reason considered unreliable and deleted at the very moment. Not fair, is it? Maybe, it would be better to delete everything that was not verified and supported by links?.

Anyway, can we do something about it? Thank you. MatthewALR (talk) 12:47, 19 January 2013 (UTC)

You added a source to content that already had two reliable sources. The source you added was a blog which, as a self-published source, is generally only reliable when the author is a recognized expert with peer reviewed publications. If I made a mistake and the authors of that blog are such experts, then we can restore the source, but otherwise we shouldn't be using it. Thanks. Jojalozzo 23:30, 19 January 2013 (UTC)

I appreciate your involvedness on Wikipedia, but I assure you that I'm objective in this matter. I merely want to update the page on the new meaning of the term chink. Being Asian I experience how many Asians (from Asia) use the term against the mainland Chinese, which is ignorant since the term applies to them too. So Japanese and Taiwanese use the term online in their Asian tensions, but they don't understand how this affects the struggle in the US of Asian Americans. Hence my awareness efforts in updating the term, and all this objectively of course. I will search for more reliable articles in the near future. --Paraloco (talk) 00:37, 20 January 2013 (UTC)

I have the sense that this "new meaning" is your opinion based on your original research since I am not seeing any sources that take the same position. Even if we find primary sources that support all or part of your theory, we need to be careful not to synthesize ideas or generalize theories from them. We need to find reliable secondary sources that explicitly discuss this "new meaning" (based on their own synthesis of primary sources) and, until we do, we cannot include these ideas in Wikipedia.

Peer review/Ely and Littleport riots 1816

Hi. Would you consider peer reviewing Ely and Littleport riots 1816? I obtained your name from the volunteer page --Senra (talk) 12:46, 30 December 2012 (UTC)

Would you consider continuing your excellent peer review of Ely and Littleport riots of 1816? I took a short break as you know to obtain the sources which I now have for three weeks (with a small possibility of an extension). As explained, I am not great at prose so please do feel free to re-word as necessary, if your time and inclination allows of course --Senra (talk) 16:30, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
Hi. I am unsure of what happens next. I am more than happy with your review so far. I replied to your "I am willing to take a crack at condensing if we want to go that route" statement in your response by giving you the go ahead when I said "... so carry on". Of course, you are under no obligation to do so. In any event, I would welcome your view on our next steps as I am keen to get this to GAN whilst I still have access to the sources --Senra (talk) 16:35, 20 January 2013 (UTC)
I have a few projects going on here at the same time and sometimes forget about some of them, so your reminders are very useful. Please do not hesitate to nudge me when it seems I have abandoned this page. I want to stay with it until we've made at least one pass over it.
One question I have been considering is how to reincorporate some of the highlights of the content (e.g. actual testimony) that were removed, leaving the dull facts (e.g. counts of witnesses and indictments) that we have now. I'll need a little more time to find inspiration for resolving that question. Jojalozzo 20:48, 20 January 2013 (UTC)
How is it going? Do you wish to suggest more changes or shall I close the review and move over to GAN? --Senra (talk) 10:50, 25 January 2013 (UTC)
Thank you. I have closed the review and opened the article at GAN --Senra (talk) 00:00, 26 January 2013 (UTC)

Pine Cobble link

I added a link to the Pine Cobble School on the Williamstown page in keeping with the other links to educational and cultural institutions already there. Pine Cobble does not want a Wikipedia page at this time, and hence there can't be an internal link. Can I add a link in the External Links section? Thanks! TingBarrow (talk) 00:46, 2 February 2013 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.243.34.146 (talk) 00:43, 2 February 2013 (UTC)

There is no need for a link to the school on the Williamstown page. It's good to mention the school there but a link is superfluous. Wikipedia is not a portal to external web sites. If and when the school has its own article that would be an excellent place for a link. Also, there is no reason we can't start an article about the school. The content here is determined by the editors not the subjects. Jojalozzo 03:11, 2 February 2013 (UTC)

Chief Mechanical Engineer

Having noticed the story on the home page about the Bulleid locomotives, I tracked down you as the prime culprit for the rendering of 'Chief Mechanical Engineer' as 'chief mechanical engineer' in all places in Wikipedia, except where used as a personal title. I gather that this was apparently because Wikipedia believes that CME is/was a common noun, no more worthy of capitalisation than 'toilet cleaner', and no more uniquely identifying of a post than 'king'. I have to say, this is so wrong it's unreal. While it may have initially only been used as a common noun, there can be no doubt that by the time of the period that is covered by for example the article on the home page right now, it had become a proper noun for that unique position, and has for various historical reasons, remained one. If as some claimed, this rendering is to avoid confusing the layman who knows nothing about the subject - all it does is the reverse. There is nothing in the historical record, contemporary job titles, or even basic logic, that is ever going to make a layman think that when perusing the Wikipedia page about CMEs, or just reading about a CME like Oliver Bulleid in general, that they're meant to interpret 'CME' as being anything other than a proper noun/name. — Preceding unsigned comment added by CME9949 (talkcontribs) 18:42, 8 March 2013 (UTC)

I understand you are trying to get information about the topic but article talk pages are not there for that purpose. Article talk pages are for editors to discuss the articles. I think you will find a number of ASMR forums on the web where your questions will be welcomed. Please see your talk page and WP:NOTFORUM. Please do not restore that talk page content again.

Copyright Violations

Good day to you. I see that you are getting a bit hot under the collar regarding some of my articles. I will read the 'rules' more thoroughly regarding the problem you are pursuing. My articles are factual and I feel that examples such as the one you have just highlighted are a bit extreme. Are you saying that the word order of a short, factual and referenced statement is really exploting someone elses intellectual property?

I have produced over 450 articles and I have no idea how I can go about checking such perceived infringments on such a scale. I look forward to hearing from you again in a constructive and less pugnacious style. I feel that I deserve a little respect and assistance for what are actually altruistic efforts to date. Wikipedia has a poor reputation as I have discovered from work with university students and I am more than happy to help raise the level of scholarship. Rosser Gruffydd 08:49, 14 February 2013 (UTC)

Copying others' work without acknowledging it as a direct quotation is no improvement to Wikipedia but instead puts it at risk of legal action. I noticed you have contributed a great deal to the project but that makes this issue even more critical, and is the basis for the urgency of my intervention, since it suggests we may have a great deal of work cleaning up after you. If your contact with university students permits any kind of plagiarism from the Internet, even short, factual, referenced statements, then you are also doing them a disservice. Your dismissal of my concerns as simply me being "hot under the collar" suggests you might benefit from a wider review of your editing habitspractices. Jojalozzo 12:51, 14 February 2013 (UTC)
My dear chap, I do not and would not copy others 'work' without acknowledgment - why would I. I find that comment frankly offensive - no doubt Wikipedia has rules that prevent you from making such allegations which are without substance and seek to insult. Legal action will not occur from a few words which are factual and set in a logical sequence. I note that you did further work on my 'Cobweb painting' article even after I had rewritten it. You may be compulsive and obsessive. Useful in some situations - perhaps a little over the top here. You may not like my 'hot under the collar' comment - however you dismiss my comments on improving Wikipedia. You alone seem to feel that I have polluted Wikipedia. Get some sleep and do nothing for 36 hrs - then decide if I am a problem. If I am, then tell me how I can fix the problem - something your belligerent comments did not address. You may not be helping Wikipedia either. Best wishes. PS. I have revisted your 'Loch Libo' complaint. Rosser Gruffydd 21:22, 14 February 2013 (UTC)
I apologize if I have presented my point of view too forcefully but it is my understanding that violating a copyright by copying text without clearly acknowledging that it's a copy, not a paraphrase or rewording, is a serious policy violation. It's my understanding we may copy sources as you have but we must put them in quotes. Otherwise we may not copy sources and must reword such content.
You may attribute my motives however you like but I do not consider that a fair argument that addresses the issues I am raising. You have said you would review the policy but I do not see where you have used policy to explain these editing practices. I would appreciate it if you would base this discussion in policy without the ad hominem comments. Cheers. Jojalozzo 23:09, 14 February 2013 (UTC)
We seem to have common ground. I did not appreciate the level to which text must be made unique. I will follow your guidance and aim to improve my compliance as required. Best wishes. Rosser Gruffydd 21:56, 21 February 2013 (UTC)
I'm not very experienced in this area. Let's see what the CCI folks suggest as next steps. Jojalozzo 22:03, 21 February 2013 (UTC)
I have no wish to seem stupid, however what do all those numbers mean and how do they help me identify what needs to be fixed? I have attended to one or two articles that other editors highlighted. Regards Rosser Gruffydd 18:38, 4 March 2013 (UTC)
Please include a link to what you are referring to. It would also be helpful if you'd use a normal signature with a link to your user pages. Jojalozzo 04:47, 5 March 2013 (UTC)
The link is http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Contributor_copyright_investigations/Rosser1954 What is a 'normal signature'? Rosser Gruffydd 22:13, 11 March 2013 (UTC)
A normal signature is obtained by appending four tildes (~~~~) to your message. It is considered courteous to format your signature such that it provides links to your user page and your talk page. You can find out more about signatures at WP:Signatures. If you need to customize (or repair) your signature, see WP:CUSTOMSIG. Jojalozzo 00:49, 12 March 2013 (UTC)
By Jove! Here I am, more than willing to put things right and you Editors seem to be at a loss as to appropriate advise. Could you please just tell me how I can help? I hope that this isn't asking too much under the circumstances. Rosser Gruffydd 22:20, 11 March 2013 (UTC)
I appreciate your willingness to help out. However, from the instructions on the web page you refer to, you should not be involved in resolving copyright issues associated with your past contributions. At this point it appears you can best participate by taking great care to avoid plagiarism and copyright violations in all future contributions. Cheers. Jojalozzo 00:49, 12 March 2013 (UTC)

neutrality

In the interest of being able to keep RfCs neutral - what, precisely, was the non-neutral part of the Fascism RfC? Thanks! Collect (talk) 12:14, 15 March 2013 (UTC)

IMO, the original is neutral and the update was neutral for the first two sentences but the rest of it, summarizing the differences between each option is not since it is one editor's interpretation. The diff is sufficient. Let the participants figure out the differences on their own. Jojalozzo 12:33, 15 March 2013 (UTC)
Thank you indeed -- TFD was the one who "added" his interpretation of the differences, and said my (terse) question was "not neutral" <g>. Cheers. I wish you would note that on the talk page, moreover. Collect (talk) 13:49, 15 March 2013 (UTC)
Because neither the request nor the update are signed, it's hard to figure out whose version is whose. (I went back in the history and sorted it out.) My initial post stated that the original was neutral and recommended it be restored. Actually, I prefer the update with just the first two sentences since it gives a name to the two versions and provides a diff so participants don't have to construct their own diff, but the original is preferable to the update in it's entirety. I think that R-41 and TFD violated policy by editing your talk page contributions. You are in your rights to re-edit it as you like and to ask both of them not to edit your posts. Jojalozzo 15:17, 15 March 2013 (UTC)
TFD has a very long history of such stuff regarding my posts and positions - and no-one yet has called him on it :(. You might look at WP:DRN for his posts about what the lede of United States should be - and my simple efforts to find a consensus solution which he seems not to like. Cheers.

Thank you - Question

Thanks for restoring that comment in Talk:asbestos. As soon as I did it, I realized there was probably more that I should have done to clean up the comments. Should I create and archive page?

I want to split the page for Asbestos into many daughter pages that are all cross-linked with an infobox. I have made an info box in my userpages and asked folks to look at it (see my posts in the middle of the page). But people only post intermittently on Asbestos so I'm not sure how to get wikipedians to notice and/or comment on my idea and my proposed split. Do you have any suggestions? I know there is a editor template for Template:This article has been proposed to be split up to go on the top of Asbestos but I can't find it! Thanks much, Saltwolf (talk) 15:16, 8 April 2013 (UTC)

There are so few posts on that page I don't think we need to archive it except for posts that are no longer current because we have addressed whatever they were concerned about.
I suggest you start a new section about the split so it's obvious to everyone. Make it explicit what you want to do.

C-SPAN peer review help?

Hello Jojalozzo, I found your name on the Peer review/volunteers page and am hoping that you might be interested in reviewing the C-SPAN article for me. I have been working on this article off and on for a few years now, expanding and improving the article as a consultant to C-SPAN. I should note that prior to December 2011 I did make direct edits to the article, but now, given my COI, I strictly follow Jimbo's "bright line" rule and only participate in Talk page discussions.

The goal of this peer review is to prepare this article for submission for FA review. Would you be interested in helping with this? If you have the time to review the C-SPAN article, I invite you to make changes yourself, as I will not be editing the article. If you would prefer not to edit the article, please make a list of needed changes as you review and I can reach out to other editors about making these changes. I posted the request a week and a half ago, and I'm afraid it might be archived soon if there's no response; I've also done a peer review for another editor this week, to make sure I am contributing overall in that way as well.

Thank you for taking the time to read my request. Please let me know if you might have time to help. Cheers, WWB Too (Talk · COI) 16:36, 9 May 2013 (UTC)

P.S. I totally spaced on including a link to the Peer Review itself. It's here. WWB Too (Talk · COI) 22:01, 9 May 2013 (UTC)

Jainism for FA

Hi, The article on Jainism has recently got a Good article status. Do you think it is ready for being a Featured Article Candidate or should there be another peer-review? Rahul Jain (talk) 04:03, 8 May 2013 (UTC)

If there was any feedback from the GA review, please point me to it. Jojalozzo 21:08, 9 May 2013 (UTC)
This was the review. Talk:Jainism/GA2 Rahul Jain (talk) 08:59, 10 May 2013 (UTC)

The Wikipedia Adventure: Text Mockup (feedback welcome!)

Hi TWA folks!

It's been a long time since we worked on The Wikipedia Adventure together, but this spring I proposed the game for an Individual Engagement Grant and it was accepted :)

I spent the last two months refining the script and getting ready to build the game using Guided tours. I am working with an amazing designer and getting expert curation tips from the Grant program leader.

Here is the full 7-mission text version of the game: http://jatspan.org/twa2.html#29

I'd love to have your feedback on it, before I get started with the build. I would love it if you would leave any thoughts, tips, comments, recommendations, suggestions, ideas, or concerns, at WP:TWA/Feedback.

Hope you're doing great,

In technical subjects like cloud computing Platform as a Service a curated list is not a directory

https://twitter.com/jasoncoombs_com/status/339829163252908033

The community of technical users of Wikipedia wish to curate a list of important platforms in the technical field of cloud computing Platform as a Service.

In the last 12 months numerous people have contributed editorial effort to curating such a list. Some of the entries previously had existing Wikipedia articles but those articles were deleted, not necessarily with good cause.

Every Platform as a Service present in the curated list is an important platform being used by thousands or tens of thousands or millions of developers and in most cases millions of end-users. Although I agree that more statistical detail of this sort is needed, that will happen over time. This is an example of what a curated list of important platforms will become: Comparison of platform virtual machines

I suggest allowing the community to curate the list. RiskNerd (talk) 19:54, 29 May 2013 (UTC)

Comparison of platform virtual machines is fine. When you have something like that, link to it. Don't load up the PaaS article with a list of providers posted by anyone who chooses to do so and call it "curated". Who "curated" anynines? It's still in beta! Jojalozzo 22:15, 29 May 2013 (UTC)

C/E help :(

Hello there, I looked you up on the peer review volunteer page; I dunno if you can help but I'm in a bit of a pickle. I started this article from scratch and got too excited when it got GA status that i nominated it for FA without forgoing a peer review :s I'm a bit disadvantaged cos English is not my native language and god knows how hard I've tried to get better at writing here but apparently I'm always messing up as you can see here and as one reluctant reviewer said: "there are still areas that could be improved ... prose could be improved..." and I have no clue where to start because getting the article to where it is now was enough of a headache. If you can be kind enough to scan the article for obvious and deadly prose mistakes i'd be very greatful. I don't think the article needs much work and I already asked for peer review but got no answer as you can see on the article's talk page. thanks -Eli+ 08:13, 26 August 2013 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (File:GF Logo.jpg)

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:GF Logo.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Werieth (talk) 03:23, 6 September 2013 (UTC)

Questions about edits to a web page

I'd like to ask you a couple of questions about edits that you made to the Dimensional Insight page and comments you left on my talk page. I had started to edit the page because the information that is there is quite out of date, and in the absence of other users making edits, wanted to ensure that the information on the page is accurate and current. What is the best way to make the information current (even if I work for the company) if other users are not actively doing so? BIkhs (talk) 13:59, 23 September 2013 (UTC)BIkhs
