UME Prep[edit]

UME Prep is a page I am working on. It just started, and needs LOTS of help. If you know bout this school, help me construct this page. If not, you can still help. Go to, and add what you learned. Help!

Keeping this conversation. 7/23/2013[edit]

Did you solve the problem?? Miss Bono [zootalk] 13:48, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

Yup! I made a page! I was looking for a fast way to do it, and hey! I got one! UME PrepJustaguy120 (talk) 13:55, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

I am glad you could solve the problem. You know where I am if there is any problem :) Miss Bono [zootalk] 13:59, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

LOL. You're fun.Justaguy120 (talk) 14:00, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

Why? Miss Bono [zootalk] 14:02, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

Well, everyone else just acts like the Wiki is life-or-death. You make it a lot more enjoyable. You always seem to have a positive attitude, and you add a little spark of humor to everything.Justaguy120 (talk) 14:06, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for that. I didn't know you had heard about me before :? Miss Bono [zootalk] 14:10, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

ya. I accidentally put the teahouse on my watchlist, and now I can't get it off. My watchlist is flooded with comments from the teahouse, including yours. That brings me to my next Q, how can I get it off my watchlis?Justaguy120 (talk) 14:17, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

Easy: There is a link that says: View and edit watchlist . Click on it. There is a box that says: Wikipedia, you're going to see this: Wikipedia:Teahouse/Questions (talk | History), click on the checkbox. Go to the bottom of the page and click on Remove Titles... and Done :) Miss Bono [zootalk] 14:24, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

That's great but, and you're not the first one so don't worry, you forgot I use mobile.Justaguy120 (talk) 14:32, 23 July 2013 (UTC)gotta go

I'm back!Justaguy120 (talk) 14:46, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

Oops! :'( I will have to see how is that with a mobile. I have no wifi, therefore I don't use mobile. can you describe the menus so I can help you better?? Miss Bono [zootalk] 14:58, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

The menu options are Home, Random (because everyone uses that), watchlist, upload, and log out. When I tap on watchlist, the Teahouse isn't displayed, but when I go to modified, it's flooded with house stuff. I've gone to the teahouse repeadedly to tell it to get off my list, but it won't work. And what device do you have?Justaguy120 (talk) 15:04, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

I use a computer. I think you should ask User:Cullen328 about that. He often uses a smartphone, maybe he knows about what is going on with your watchlist. You are the first one here (I think) that tells me I am funny. Thanks for the autograph :D Miss Bono [zootalk] 15:15, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

1:Thanks much! I'll ask him! 2: NP with autograph. 3: I meant what is the device you referenced to about no wifi? 4: What were you saying tells you ur funny? I had more, but during that time someone else edited page, and I had to rewrite.

No problem. You n¡know where you can find me... so, anytime you need my help just drop me a line I will be more than happy to help you. And about the wifi... I have a smartphone but there is no wifi where I can connect it. Long story :) Miss Bono [zootalk] 15:33, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

See ya! Oh, and keep watching my page User:Justaguy120. I will be updating it frequently. I'll keep in touch.

Okis!! :) Miss Bono [zootalk] 15:40, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

I'll take that as an OK. LOL.Justaguy120 (talk) 15:50, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

Yeas, it is a friendly OK Miss Bono [zootalk] 15:52, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

New Help Request[edit]

This help request has been answered. If you need more help, you can ask another question on your talk page, contact the responding user(s) directly on their user talk page, or consider visiting the Teahouse.

(Moved from top of page)

Is there any way I could advertise my new page, so more people can help me construct it? Also, I can't figure out how, nor do I care to, delete a page I created. Could one of you helpers please do it? It is User:Justaguy120/Sandbox. Thanks much!Justaguy120 (talk) 14:58, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

Reply to {{Help me}} request: Everything you need to know about deleting a page on Wikipedia is in this policy: WP:Delete. There's no way to "advertise" you page, however you can find help from other Wikipedia editors at the WP:Help desk. If you want to give me the name of the article and the help you need in your reply here I'll be happy to help you if I can, just reply to this message. I'll be watching this page and I'll return to answer your questions as soon as I can. —    Bill W.    (Talk)  (Contrib)  — 15:19, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

I recently created the page, UME Prep. I need lots of work done on it. More info in talk section UME, above.Justaguy120 (talk) 15:32, 23 July 2013 (UTC)
(Correcting myself) First thing you will need to do is establish notability to satisfy this policy WP:Notability (high schools). To do this you need to provide verifiable references from reliable third party sources. The tag {{speedy deletion-significance}} has been removed because schools do not qualify for a "speedy" although another editor could still recommend deletion throught the regular deletion processes of WP:Articles for deletion or WP:PROD. You should continue working on improving the article and you should not have further problems. Please let me know here if you need further help. —    Bill W.    (Talk)  (Contrib)  — 16:30, 23 July 2013 (UTC)
Did YOU put the tag on there?
I did not. And it has now been removed. Please see my corrected comment above for more information. —    Bill W.    (Talk)  (Contrib)  — 16:42, 23 July 2013 (UTC)
OK. Thanks much!Justaguy120 (talk) 16:45, 23 July 2013 (UTC)
Bill, WP:Notability (high schools) is not a policy on Wikipedia. It's misleading to refer to it as such when it has not gone through the same formal discussion and vetting by the vast majority of editors that is required for policy. While there is no policy on schools, the general outcome is that high schools are generally accepted as notable when there is a secondary source that simply verifies they exist. Though, when independent coverage is available, it is best to include it. I, Jethrobot drop me a line (note: not a bot!) 16:53, 23 July 2013 (UTC)
True. Sorry for the error in nomenclature. WP:Notability (high schools) is not a policy, it is advice from other editors in the form of an essay and essays are not policy. However if your article covers all the bases mentioned there, you won't have to defend it any further should someone try to get it deleted. (And to reply to the deleted comment: We all try our best, with a few exceptions, but getting advice is like anything else it's best if you can get more than one opinion.) —    Bill W.    (Talk)  (Contrib)  — 17:55, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

What on Earth is my text doing?Justaguy120 (talk) 17:00, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

If you start a line with leading spaces (like the one above), you get that kind of format-less text, so be sure to start new lines without any leading spaces. Also, I don't think you need to go so far as to not trust Bill above. He was trying to be helpful by answering your question, and probably only made a mistake. It's a little mean-spirited on a collaborative project to make such a dramatic comparison. I, Jethrobot drop me a line (note: not a bot!) 17:16, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

How do you thank people for edits?Justaguy120 (talk) 17:27, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

Check any page's edit history and you'll see a "thank" button next to each change. Click it, and presto, insta-appreciation. I, Jethrobot drop me a line (note: not a bot!) 17:50, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

Sorry, Bill. Justaguy120 (talk) 18:34, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

Not a problem. I could see you were just venting, so I did not get upset. I know how frustrating this all can be at first. I also thought if I replied to your deleted comment that it might serve to remind you that nothing is ever truly deleted around here because the history is always there. —    Bill W.    (Talk)  (Contrib)  — 18:53, 23 July 2013 (UTC)
I'm releived to hear that. My apologies.Justaguy120 (talk) 19:02, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of UME Preparatory Academy[edit]

Hello Justaguy120,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged UME Preparatory Academy for deletion, because the article doesn't clearly say why the subject is important enough to be included in an encyclopedia.

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted and want more time to work on it, you can contest this deletion, but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. Vanjagenije (talk) 16:18, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

Hello, Justaguy120. You have new messages at Vanjagenije's talk page.

Stop trying to delete my articles.Justaguy120 (talk) 16:39, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

You should just follow the rules, and nobody will try to delete any article you wrote. Vanjagenije (talk) 16:37, 30 July 2013 (UTC)
For your information, I did follow the rules. If I remember correctly, the article is STILL THERE! UME Prep Why, you ask? Because there was no reason to delete it.Justaguy120 (talk) 02:54, 31 July 2013 (UTC)


There are two users I have really enjoyed working with. Miss Bono and I, Jethrobot, I know this sounds totally corny but, wanna be friends?Justaguy120 (talk) 21:19, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

Green tickY Aye. I'm down with that. Just bear in mind that there is a fine line between Wikipedia and a social network. Some fun is OK, and like the founder Jimbo, I think it's healthy for ourselves and the project to get to know one another, but not in so much excess that we lose sight of actually building an encyclopedia. There are also some who frown upon most kinds of fun and relationship-forming here because it doesn't "contribute to the encyclopedia", so keep in mind that not everyone will agree on what kinds of activities are/are not OK. I, Jethrobot drop me a line (note: not a bot!) 21:48, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

K. Good to know. I'm still working on articles. Justaguy120 (talk) 21:51, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

Hey, I Jethrobot, and Justaguy, I am an editor who takes a moderate position on this issue. I reveal a fair amount of personal information on my user page, try to maintain friendly relationships with many editors, including those who have various problems, and try to avoid conflict. And I mentor Miss Bono. But I don't go around talking very much about "friendships" per se, or matters unrelated to improving the encyclopedia. This is a monumental project with a well-defined goal: creating an ever-improving encyclopedia, free for everyone. Any social interaction that advances that goal is fine with me. Chit-chat that doesn't have anything to do with improving the encyclopedia is not OK with me. The essay you linked to, I Jethrobot, does not seem to represent any significant opinion among active editors, in my opinion. I see it as an outlier. Cullen328 Let's discuss it 23:52, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

Dude, I'm just saying we're friends. I never said I was chit-chatting about nothing.Justaguy120 (talk) 00:53, 24 July 2013 (UTC)

Dude, you and I can be friends, just as I am friendly with Miss Bono and with I Jethrobot. But it must be in the context of improving the encyclopedia. Otherwise, there are plenty of other websites devoted to socializing, and I participate in several of them. All your comments here are available for scrutiny by every editor. By the way, I have been studying use of the term "dude" for over 40 years. Cullen328 Let's discuss it 02:00, 24 July 2013 (UTC)

OK, OK. No offense, but THAT cracked me up. So tell me the exact definition of "dude", which, technically, is not a real word.Justaguy120 (talk) 02:05, 24 July 2013 (UTC)

Oh, it most certainly is a "real word" with a long and colorful history as explained in our excellent article, Dude. In my childhood, I identified first with the "very well dressed" or "overdressed" meaning, and also with the "dude ranch" or city slicker definition, the opposite of a genuine cowboy. As my ancestry combined rural Idaho and urban Detroit antecedents, the word resonated with me. After I came to California, and even a bit before, I recognized it as surfer terminology. Of course, I recognize how symbolic the word is in the work of Steely Dan and especially Peter Frampton. And as a convert to Judaism, and father of a young man who is a dedicated bowler, I certainly relate to its usage in The Big Lebowski. But in the present context, I am thoroughly familiar with its online usage as a "friendly" term to lord it over a rhetorical opponent. I never go there, unless someone else does first. I hope this helps. Cullen328 Let's discuss it 02:41, 24 July 2013 (UTC)

Well, you showed your humorous side on your talk page. I never looked into the word dude, and I actually find that quite interesting. I just heard, you know, how kids use it these days. Want to be friends? Justaguy120 (talk) 02:46, 24 July 2013 (UTC)

Yes, I want to be friends, if our friendship is to be based on improving encyclopedia articles. Thank you for the pie, by the way. Our mutual friend, Miss Bono, has wonderful goals but also has problems with internet access because of where she lives. So my suggestion to you is to consider helping her with her research needs, as I presume you have basic Google skills. Familiarize yourself with all the key policies described in WP:5P and WP:PRIMER, and then assist Miss Bono as a research assistant for a couple of months. I will happily answer any serious questions you have. If you do so, you will earn my respect. Otherwise, Facebook is thataway ---->. Cullen328 Let's discuss it 03:36, 24 July 2013 (UTC)

Actually, Miss Bono has been helping me. See the conversation above that I'm keeping. I don't think I hve any authority over her. What probs does she have with the wifi? And, does she ever go on at night owl times? If your getting sick of Qs, tell me. I won't take it the wrong way. One last thing: don't have Facebook.Justaguy120 (talk) 03:42, 24 July 2013 (UTC)

Hi, Just... I am never around here at night, because I only have access to Wikipedia at work (btw, the rest of the Internet sites are blocked at work, that's why I have Internet problems as Cullen328 said, somewhere up there ↑). I am glad to be your WikiFriend and work along with you to improve the Wiki :)... I am also glad to helo you anytime you need it :) Another btw, I have read the Miss Bono section Cullen removed, It was on the History... Still don't get why you didn't want me to see it :? Another question, isn't easier for you to edit using a computer, why don't you use one? Miss Bono [zootalk] 12:09, 24 July 2013 (UTC)

1) Great! I've added you to my friends! 2)I didn't want you to fell violated. 3)I don't have access to a computer.

Violated? No, I don't... Believe me I will tell you when I feel that way, or you will know before I tell you :P I am very sensitive. But don't worry. Cullen will cover your back... and mine :) Miss Bono [zootalk] 13:28, 24 July 2013 (UTC)

OK. Sorry. I just didnt want to risk it.Justaguy120 (talk) 13:35, 24 July 2013 (UTC)

No problem... you did well!... Misunderstandings in Wikipedia often happen, you know what they say: forewarned is forearmed Miss Bono [zootalk] 13:43, 24 July 2013 (UTC)
HUA!Justaguy120 (talk) 13:47, 24 July 2013 (UTC)
What does HUA mean?? Sorry, but English is not my first language. Miss Bono [zootalk] 13:50, 24 July 2013 (UTC)

My friend, that has nothing to do with your first anguage. MANY people who speak English don't know what it means. It's a military term. It means Heard, Understood, Acknowledged.Justaguy120 (talk) 13:53, 24 July 2013 (UTC)

Oh, I get it. It's a Semper Fi thing... Good to know :) Miss Bono [zootalk] 13:55, 24 July 2013 (UTC)
And I don't know what that is! :PJustaguy120 (talk) 13:58, 24 July 2013 (UTC)
See this. I learnt it form NCIS the TV Show :) Miss Bono [zootalk] 14:02, 24 July 2013 (UTC)
Ohhh... Yes. Kind of a Semper Fi thing, Miss BonoJustaguy120 (talk) 14:08, 24 July 2013 (UTC)

I'm logging off in just a minute. I'll get back on after I eat, though. Justaguy120 (talk) 14:15, 24 July 2013 (UTC)


Welcome to Wikipedia!! I'm really happy to hear you only edit on mobile Wikipedia. I help make the mobile website so please feel free to reach out to me with any problems you come across and ideas you have ! May your stay be long and enjoyable :)Jdlrobson (talk) 22:50, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

That is extremely good to know. Expect Qs from me, because a lot of people don't get mobile.Justaguy120 (talk) 22:56, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

I am an editor who contributes using a mobile device, a Droid RAZR. I don't use the mobile site, but instead access the desktop site on my smart phone. There are some problems, but I get quite a bit done. Cullen328 Let's discuss it 23:56, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

Friend section on your user page[edit]

I would like to improve the code in your Friends section, to get it more organized, like this:

What do you think? Miss Bono [zootalk] 16:44, 24 July 2013 (UTC)

I like it! Go ahead.Justaguy120 (talk) 16:46, 24 July 2013 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done, next time you want to add anyone, you just have to copy the code there and replace the name of the user with the new one Miss Bono [zootalk] 17:01, 24 July 2013 (UTC)

I have a lot going on right now. If you notice that I'm not responding for a long period of time, could you update my "Am I on right now?" section? Thanks much! Justaguy120 (talk) 16:49, 24 July 2013 (UTC)

Hey, Jim![edit]

Hey, Cullen328, you wnt to edit some pages tonight? I'll be on by ten (my time) or eight (your time), and very possibly even earlier. Justaguy120 (talk) 22:46, 24 July 2013 (UTC)

User Status Template[edit]

Hey-- just wanted to suggest a simple template for a status update that you can use on your talk/user pages. You can check out the template here: Template:UserStatus. I, Jethrobot drop me a line (note: not a bot!) 16:52, 25 July 2013 (UTC)

Hey, I Jethrobot. This looks graet but I can't figure out how to work it. The page is unclear as to exactly how to type it. Can you explain please? Justaguy120 (talk) 03:29, 26 July 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, sorry about the delay. I was trying to see if there was an easier template to use for status updates, but I wasn't successful. Basically, you need to create a user page, User:Justaguy120/Status, where you will simply write one of the keywords found on Template:UserStatus like "online" or "working" or "wikibreak" (except no quotes) as you need to change it. Then, on your talkpage and/or userpage, you can put {{UserStatus}} wherever you want to display your status. There is another template that works pretty much the same way, Template:Statustop, except it puts it at the very top of the page and there are fewer options. I can get either one of these systems set up for you if you're not sure how to proceed. I, Jethrobot drop me a line (note: not a bot!) 05:05, 31 July 2013 (UTC)

Let me Know[edit]

When you are oN :) Miss Bono [zootalk] 15:14, 29 July 2013 (UTC)
