I spy a llama![edit]

Hope you're well :) Feel free to leave me a note if you have any questions. Whether I'll be able to answer them or not is another story! hugs, -- phoebe 05:06, 13 November 2006 (UTC)

comics[edit]

there's a comic book author who writes about the history of science who is also a librarian?!? why didn't I know about this earlier? --phoebe 06:38, 22 November 2006 (UTC)

Jim Ottaviani[edit]

Ken, This article is superb. Really. It's wonderfully written, well referenced, in proper style (!) and about a compelling subject. You should get a first-article award or something :) The only things I did was link some more of the terms (how much to link is sort of a personal preference; not going overboard is good but linking proper nouns is also good); and I took out the awards information from the bibliography and put it in its own section so the bibliography would be a little cleaner; again, this is kind of a personal-preference call and one could go either way. I also changed the 'other links' header to be 'external links', which is standard terminology. The only thing I'd suggest is if you have specific sections you can footnote from some of your other sources, go ahead and do so, since that is really the kind of thing you have to have the original sources in hand to do. And, of course, if the other books have isbns include those; but I figure you know that already & would if they did. All in all though, this is excellent work. Congratulations. Now you, too, have the ultimate time-wasting hobby! (just keep telling yourself you're making the world a better place) :) --phoebe 07:07, 22 November 2006 (UTC)

Patrick Stewart reference[edit]

In Patrick Stewart (soldier), the version you mention ([1]) has the inline link, but for some reason I couldn't get it to appear correctly in the "References" section. I wanted just the title to show, not the URL in brackets. That wouldn't work, and I didn't know why, and I lost patience, so I just put the link (appearing correctly) in the "References" section, with no inline link. It's the article by Sean Whaley. The title should make it clear which passage it supports. An inline link would be better, though, if it can be formatted properly.

By the way, I'm pretty sure the symbol does NOT appear on Stewart's tombstone. I think there's a "memorial wall" that has a plaque for each veteran buried in the cemetery. Stewart's space was blank until the recent installation of the plaque with the Wiccan symbol. JamesMLane t c 17:03, 29 November 2006 (UTC)

Dan Stroeh[edit]

A tag has been placed on Dan Stroeh, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article seems to be about a person, group of people, band, club, company, or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not assert the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that you can assert the notability of the subject, you may contest the deletion. To do this, add {{hangon}} on the top of the page (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag) and leave a note on the article's talk page explaining your position. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would confirm the subject's notability under Wikipedia guidelines.

For guidelines on specific types of articles, you may want to check out our criteria for biographies, for web sites, for bands, or for companies. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. A1octopus 18:46, 18 May 2007 (UTC)

Hey there! Thanks for the sweet note. I had a lovely weekend: I was in Montreal going to RecentChangesCamp. :) cheers, -- phoebe/(talk) 19:21, 21 May 2007 (UTC)

Ibid.[edit]

Hey, Kenllama, I saw on Phoebe's page that you're wondering how to do ibid. on Wikipedia. Short answer: you don't. Wikipedia:Footnotes#Citing_a_reference_more_than_once has more info. I'll bet there's a technological solution waiting to be implemented here, though. It's definitely a nuisance repeating the same book info just for a changed page number. --Ben Kovitz 20:42, 15 November 2007 (UTC)

aha! Ben beat me to it. Thanks, Ben :) -- phoebe/(talk) 22:14, 2 December 2007 (UTC)

ibids & sigs[edit]

Did I reply to your question already? I don't think I did. There's not a good way to do "ibids" that I know of, unfortunately. References with the ref tag are auto-numbered, so if one gets moved it's not a big deal. This is good for wikitext, but does mean that they aren't tied to each other in a way that would permit ibids. I usually cite out the full reference the first time I use it with the <ref> tag, then in subsequent refs will just use academic style -- <ref> Taylor, p. 3.</ref>

It looks like you already know about <ref name="taylor"> Taylor, big book of wikis</ref> and <ref name="taylor"> formatting, but this is good if you don't care about citing specific pages.

Bah! Something to spec out and/or code for future versions. -- phoebe/(talk) 22:13, 2 December 2007 (UTC)

Hallo from triadruid[edit]

I didn't get a chance to read your email before leaving for work this morning, but C. said you'd sent me something about Wikipedia. Feel free to ask me anything here, or just wait for the inevitable email... -- nae'blis 16:03, 13 December 2007 (UTC)


Speedy deletion of Kaisariyah[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Please refrain from introducing inappropriate pages such as Kaisariyah, to Wikipedia. Doing so is not in accordance with our policies. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the article (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the article's talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Electronic Resource Management System[edit]

Hi. I found User:Kenllama/ERM and Electronic Resource Management System while creating VITAL/VTLS and will be writing articles about the other systems, especially those used in Australian Universities. I'll likely be expanding this mainspace page soon, but thought you would like a chance to merge in your user space info first. Cheers, John Vandenberg (chat) 12:41, 10 November 2008 (UTC)

Hi John -- thanks for thinking of me with regard to the ERM article. I've never gotten around to working up an article, and am not likely to soon. If there's anything you want to cadge from it, feel free! Thanks! Kenllama/(talk) 01:20, 11 November 2008 (UTC)
It is curious that you dont think your userpage is "ready", yet the page Electronic Resource Management System is less informative. A few times I have found that has happened to me to. I think the moral of the story is to push pages into mainspace as soon as possible. I've just moved Research Quality Framework into mainspace, despite it being a mess...
After my post last night, I thought perhaps we could move your page into mainspace as Electronic Resource Management, and then redirect it to Electronic Resource Management System (or tag them both with merge tags, and see what happens), so then your contributions are within the main body of content, and I can then re-use your work without any GFDL concerns. --John Vandenberg (chat) 02:00, 11 November 2008 (UTC)
John -- I've worked over my page a bit and incorporated it into Electronic Resource Management System. (The whole History section was just copy-and-paste from the DLF report. I've condensed and paraphrased it so it's much shorter now.) The "Features" section is also very-little-changed from the original source. If you want to have a whack at paraphrasing it a bit (or perhaps mixing it up with content from other sources), I'd be grateful. (The original text is not online, unfortunately; that came from a conference presentation I happened to have attended.)
So far, I'll I've done is tip my content into the article; I've not done anything with the as-yet-vacant Electronic Resource Management page. I'd be glad for you to do whatever you want with the pages at this point! Kenllama/(talk) 15:02, 11 November 2008 (UTC)
Thanks a heap. I'll do some heavy revising and expanding over the next few days, and will ping you when I'm done. John Vandenberg (chat) 21:43, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

DYK for Oleg Bogayev[edit]

Updated DYK query On 27 December, 2008, Did you know? was updated with a fact from the article Oleg Bogayev, which you created or substantially expanded. If you know of another interesting fact from a recently created article, then please suggest it on the Did you know? talk page.

--Dravecky (talk) 07:51, 28 December 2008 (UTC)

why revert edit to Adrienne Kennedy?[edit]

I reverted because the editor was adding hundreds of external links to the Bomb magazine website which seemed like spamming to me. Feel free to discuss it on the talk page of the article or add the link again if you feel strongly about it. All good wishes . TeapotgeorgeTalk 16:41, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

YES...Incorporate any useful info into the article and add the interview as a reference rather than as an external link....much better. TeapotgeorgeTalk 20:17, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

Eusebia[edit]

Hi Kenllama. Thank you for your message. You will find a good bunch of references on Eusebia on Google Books [2]. For the "Eusebia" used by Ashoka, you can look at Edicts of Ashoka, and the direct content and translation of the edict here: File:AsokaKandahar.jpg. Cheers PHG (talk) 13:18, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

María Irene Fornés[edit]

Thanks for the new ref. It states that Fornes won 13 Obies, but I can only count 9. Can you find any references that clear this up? Thanks! -- Ssilvers (talk) 01:55, 24 August 2012 (UTC)

I think you're right. The Obie website only lists 9, so I'm going to use that citation instead and revert the number. Thanks Kenirwin/(talk) 12:43, 24 August 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for clearing that up. If you look at Fornes' article, you can see several places where it says "citation needed". Do you have references for any of that information? If you can add any references in those places, it would be a big help! Thanks very much! -- Ssilvers (talk) 14:20, 24 August 2012 (UTC)
I picked off one easy one, and I'll see what else I can do. -- Kenirwin
Good one. Any others you can add would be great! You can automatically sign your talk page messages with four tildes like this: ~~~~ Happy editing! -- Ssilvers (talk) 20:50, 28 August 2012 (UTC)

Invitation to participate in study[edit]

Hello,

I am E. Whittaker, an intern at Wikimedia with the Scoring Team to create a labeled dataset, and potentially a tool, to help editors deal with incivility when they encounter it on talk pages. A full write-up of the study can be found here: m:Research:Civil_Behavior_Interviews. We are currently recruiting editors to be interviewed about their experiences with incivility on talk pages. Would you be interested in being interviewed? I am contacting you because of your involvement in Wikipedia’s Women in Red project. The interviews should take ~1 hour, and will be conducted over BlueJeans (which does allow interviews to be recorded). If, so, please email me at ewhit@umich.edu in order to schedule an interview.

Updated DYK query.svgOn 10 February 2019, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Mary Jobe Akeley, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that mountaineer Mary Jobe Akeley was hailed as "the first white person and probably the first human being" to explore a remote peak in the Canadian Rockies that she called "Big Ice Mountain"? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Mary Jobe Akeley. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Mary Jobe Akeley), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000.

Replaceable fair use File:Photo of Mary Jobe Akeley, 1930.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Photo of Mary Jobe Akeley, 1930.jpg. I noticed that this file is being used under a claim of fair use. However, I think that the way it is being used fails the first non-free content criterion. This criterion states that files used under claims of fair use may have no free equivalent; in other words, if the file could be adequately covered by a freely-licensed file or by text alone, then it may not be used on Wikipedia. If you believe this file is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the file description page and add the text {{Di-replaceable fair use disputed|<your reason>}} below the original replaceable fair use template, replacing <your reason> with a short explanation of why the file is not replaceable.
  2. On the file discussion page, write a full explanation of why you believe the file is not replaceable.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media item by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by creating new media yourself (for example, by taking your own photograph of the subject).

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per the non-free content policy. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. -- Marchjuly (talk) 06:33, 11 February 2019 (UTC)

Lovely work on The Wood Wife[edit]

Baklava - Turkish special, 80-ply.JPEG After reading and enjoying The Wood Wife, I checked its history and saw that all of the best parts were from you. Great job! It's one of my favorite books, and you captured it. Schazjmd (talk) 23:19, 10 April 2019 (UTC)
@Schazjmd: - Thanks! I loved the book and came back to the Wikipedia page a while back and realized how much better it could be. I'm glad you appreciated it. Kenirwin/(talk) 02:39, 11 April 2019 (UTC)
