belated welcome[edit]

Welcome...

Hello, Lamro, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are some pages that you might find helpful:

Please sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically produce your name and the date. If you need help, check out Wikipedia:Questions, ask me on my talk page, or place {{helpme}} on your talk page and ask your question there. Again, welcome! Foggy Morning 02:54, 18 August 2007 (UTC)

You might find Wikipedia:Footnotes especially helpful. Don't confuse References with External links! See WP:EL for guidelines on external links. The References section in each article should list all sources used for information in the article. All information should be sourced for verification. Keep in mind that Wikipedia does not usually use self-published sources -- see WP:SPS. Thanks again for your contributions! --Foggy Morning 02:54, 18 August 2007 (UTC)

Edit summaries and references[edit]

As a courtesy to other editors and as a summary of your own changes to Wikipedia, please fill in the edit summary box on your GUI. Near the top of your Wiki screen is a my preferences link. If you click on this, then click on the Editing tab, you'll see that you can check a box so that you'll get a warning if you forget to add an edit summary. You should check this box. You've been editing without edit summaries for many months,[1] even though you've been asked politely to add these summaries. Please provide edit summaries with your future edits.

Also, again, please note that any information that you add to Wikipedia that cannot be verified can be deleted at any time -- especially biographical information on living people. You've already been asked to provide your sources, so I'm adding a some warning messages here...

Information.svg Please do not add content without citing reliable sources, as you did to Michael Lewis (author). Before making potentially controversial edits, it is recommended that you discuss them first on the article's talk page. If you are familiar with Wikipedia:Citing sources please take this opportunity to add your original reference to the article. Contact me if you need assistance adding references. Thank you.

Nuvola apps important.svg Please do not add unsourced or original content, as you did to Financial ratio. Doing so violates Wikipedia's verifiability policy. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. Thank you.

Your contributions are appreciated, but it would be very helpful if you would review Wikipedia's policies and guidelines before making further edits. Thank you! --Foggy Morning (talk) 00:28, 22 January 2008 (UTC)

Preview button[edit]

Information.svg Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. Regarding your edit(s) to Federal Reserve System, it is recommended that you use the preview button before you save; this helps you find any errors you have made, and prevents clogging up recent changes and the page history. Thank you. -FrankTobia (talk) 14:32, 23 February 2008 (UTC)

Law firm articles[edit]

I will certainly incorporate your strategy! Best wishes, --Mediterraneo (talk) 01:37, 20 May 2008 (UTC)

History of private equity and venture capital[edit]

Lamro, I recently added an article on the history of private equity and venture capital and noticed you have made a fair amount of additions on the subject. I would appreciate it if you spend some time with the article and would welcome any suggestions.

Separately, I noticed you had some issues with images. I believe it is preferable to upload new versions of an image in the same location, rather than creating a new image and switching the reference in the article. By doing so this may leave the original image orphaned. Thanks.Urbanrenewal (talk) 22:26, 8 June 2008 (UTC)

Private Equity Task Force[edit]

Hi, I wanted to invite you to become an inaugural member of the Private Equity WikiProject Task Force. I think this might be a good fit and your contributions would be welcome. This is intended as an inter-project task force to focus on private equity concepts, firms and investors. If you are interested, please visit the Private Equity WikiProject Task Force project page.

Also, please feel free to add the following banner to your user page:

{{Userbox/privateequitytaskforce}}

I look forward to working together. Let me know if you have any questions.

HM Capital[edit]

Hi -

Either name is probably fine but now you have a ton of internal links to a redirect page. I think in general the naming convention for PE firms is not perfect but better to leave as is rather than start changing them all.

Hi Lamro[edit]

Hey man, thanks for the heads up. I'm doing OK--I finally got a permanent job, which I'm trying to adjust to. Everything else has been pretty boring. I've been trying to tidy up some of the law firm articles and law-related biographies lately, and occasionally adding new articles (when I have time). Let me know if you need help with anything else. --Eastlaw (talk) 20:22, 5 July 2008 (UTC)

Orphaning my images[edit]

Lamro --

I like you and think you do very good work. One thing: you have to stop orphaning my images. You uploaded a new GTCR logo Image:Gtcr-logo.JPG to replace Image:GTCR logo.jpg which is fine. Personally, I think your new image is not as good as the original one but you created a new image and then changed the link on the page. It would be helpful if you could simply upload a new version of the image in place of the old version in the same location. This way I don't continuously get notices that my images are orphaned and have the images I contribute get deleted. This is not the first time and I just wanted to bring it to your attention since I wasn't sure you were aware. Otherwise, I do really appreciate all of the work you are doing on PE these days it is really very helpful.|► ϋ r b a n я e n e w a l ◄| (talk) 13:22, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

CIVC[edit]

Looks good to me. I made some quick edits and will probably revisit at some point once they are done with their fundraising. I generally try to avoid getting too involved with articles for firms that I know are actively fundraising. |► ϋrbanяenewaℓTALK ◄| 13:29, 21 July 2008 (UTC)

I wanted to thank you for your hard work on this and have given you a well-deserved barnstar. |► ϋrbanяenewaℓTALK ◄| 00:58, 23 July 2008 (UTC)

Highland Capital Partners[edit]

Lamro,

I went through and fixed up your Highland Capital Partners and took off the speedy delete tag. That would not have been my first choice of venture firms to add but definitely notable. If you are pressed for ideas there is a whole list on the project page for the Private Equity Task Force. At least you should add the firm to the project page and add the {{PrivateEquity (project)}} tag to the talk page you are creating. To the average wikipedia deletionist a venture capital firm is an easy speedy delete candidate because they don't know how to distinguish.

When you have some time, will you add some more good references. There are a few out there. And I would always be grateful if you add some stubs from the list.

|► ϋrbanяenewaℓTALK ◄| 21:13, 8 August 2008 (UTC)

Recent additions[edit]

Lamro --

With respect to some of the additions you made, I thought they might be better addressed by adding to or linking to existing articles rather than creating so many additional articles.

  • Direct investment fund - If you are talking about a co-investment fund why don't you add this to Equity co-investment. Plus I wouldn't based an entire article on Fort Washington which is a small FoF in the midwest. In fact, I was going to work on the Equity co-investment article fairly soon so if you want to spruce that up it would be appreciated
  • Executive stock option - This is pretty well covered in a number of articles aready under Employee stock option. I am not sure what else you want to add on that
  • Principal investment - This should probably just be a redirect to Proprietary trading unless I am missing something. In any event this is rarely private equity and more often a hedge fund type investment platform.

Hello, Fellow de-orphaner![edit]

Nuvola filesystems folder home.png

I noticed you added your name to the list of participants in WikiProject Orphanage. We really appreciate your help! The first things you could do to get started with us are:

  1. Read the Wikipedia:WikiProject Orphanage page, especially the section marked "Criteria". The page contains a lot of good advice to get you started, as well as the standard procedures we are using to de-orphan articles.
  2. Look at {{orphan}},{{do-attempt}}, and {{articleissues}} closely and make sure you know how to use them correctly. (It's not difficult, but it is easy to screw up. Trust me, I have.)
  3. Keep de-orphaning! Category:Orphaned articles contains all orphaned articles organized by month. Right now we're just trying to keep up with all the new orphans being created, so please start with the current monthly category. Once those are cleared out, we can start working on the backlog in reverse-chronological order.
Of course, you may have already known all of this, in which case sorry for the spam. Either way, let me know if there's any way I can help you contribute more to the project!--Aervanath lives in the Orphanage 13:26, 17 August 2008 (UTC)

PE Stubs[edit]

Please see here for my proposal to create three new stubs for PE related articles.

|► ϋrbanяenewaℓTALK ◄| 19:49, 17 August 2008 (UTC)

Dates in maintenance tags[edit]

Just a friendly note about this edit to Co-shoring. When you add a new maintenance tag to an article, as you did with the {{deadend}} tag, you should use the current month even if the article has needed the tag for a while. This helps people work on the articles that have been tagged the longest, and avoids putting articles into maintenance categories that have been cleaned out and are ready for deletion. Thanks!--Fabrictramp | talk to me 21:17, 19 August 2008 (UTC)

Previewing before Saving[edit]

Thank you for your contributions to J.D./M.B.A.; they are very much appreciated. I'd just like to remind you of the Show Preview button available in wikipedia. Using it before hitting the Save button helps you find any errors you have made, and prevents clogging up recent changes and the page history. Thanks, FashionNugget (talk) 03:07, 26 August 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for that. I have enjoyed working with you and might not have kept going without having you get involved.

Thanks for the Barnstar[edit]

Hi Lamro, thanks for giving me a "tireless contributor" barnstar. It's nice to know that at least a few people appreciate my work. --Eastlaw (talk) 21:21, 31 August 2008 (UTC)

WP:O Article counts[edit]

Hi, Lamro, I reverted your addition of your de-orphan count to the WP:O page. I don't think that having that sort of statistic there is helpful. All of us like to have some sort of recognition for our work, and a way to show how much we have contributed individually, but I think that sort of info is more appropriate to your userpage. Also, congrats on de-orphaning over 50 articles!--Aervanath lives in the Orphanage 03:40, 3 September 2008 (UTC)

PE Task Force Assistance[edit]

Lamro,

I wanted to see if I could get your assistance on some fair use images in some of the PE articles that someone is trying to delete.

Thanks |► ϋrbanяenewaℓTALK ◄| 22:37, 9 September 2008 (UTC)

JD/MBA[edit]

Don't be frustrated. I don't think there is a good precedent for making that page the home for a list of people who had earned the degree. After all what is the basis for inclusion? As you could see it was becoming a dumping ground for all kinds of people (most not even close to notable). The list is still on the talk page for your reference. However, I think a category or some other solution is much better - otherwise that list is going to continue to baloon. |► ϋrbanяenewaℓTALK ◄| 04:18, 22 September 2008 (UTC)

Welcome back?[edit]

I noticed your retirement seemed to be thawing just slightly. I was fairly productive (albeit lonely) on the PE side in December. I have been basically creating new firm articles but I am going to probably start shifting gears to really clean up the main PE pages again and the articles on the largest firms (i.e., like what I was doing with KKR.

wikEd problem: Ctrl-click[edit]

Hi Lamro,

there seems to be a problem with the gadget wikEd that caused the insertion of "Ctrl-click" in your recent edit to History of Federal Open Market Committee actions. Please could you help me locate this problem by reporting your browser name and version and possible other gadgets that you might have checked (under My Preferences - Gadgets) on User talk:Cacycle/wikEd#Very odd Ctrl-click issue.

WP:Hornbook -- a new WP:Law task force for the J.D. curriculum[edit]

Hi Lamro,

I'm asking Wikipedians who are interested in United States legal articles to take a look at WP:Hornbook, the new "JD curriculum task force".

Our mission is to assimilate into Wikipedia all the insights of an American law school education, by reducing hornbooks to footnotes.

  • Over the course of a semester, each subpage will shift its focus to track the unfolding curriculum(s) for classes using that casebook around the country.
  • It will also feature an extensive, hyperlinked "index" or "outline" to that casebook, pointing to pages, headers, or {{anchors}} in Wikipedia (example).
  • Individual law schools can freely adapt our casebook outlines to the idiosyncratic curriculum devised by each individual professor.
  • I'm encouraging law students around the country to create local chapters of the club I'm starting at my own law school, "Student WP:Hornbook Editors". Using WP:Hornbook as our headquarters, we're hoping to create a study group so inclusive that nobody will dare not join.

What you can do now:

1. Add WP:Hornbook to your watchlist, {{User Hornbook}} to your userpage, and ~~~~ to Wikipedia:Hornbook/participants.
2. If you're a law student,
(You don't have to start the club, or even be involved in it; just help direct me to someone who might.)
3. Introduce yourself to me. Law editors on Wikipedia are a scarce commodity. Do knock on my talk page if there's an article you'd like help on.

Regards, Andrew Gradman talk/WP:Hornbook 05:25, 31 July 2009 (UTC)

Compound template[edit]

Hi there

Thanks for your hard work adding these compounds. Are you adding all compounds in a certain category into the template, or is this a representative selection? Also, some compounds are quite unrecognizable when condensed into a simple molecular formula. For example, tetrakis(triphenylphosphine)palladium(0). The compound name might be more appropriate. --Rifleman 82 (talk) 22:04, 12 May 2011 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Eric Sprott[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Eric Sprott has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Notability not established, doesn't appear to be anyone other than a investment manager. Sounds more like a CV

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. The speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. RxS (talk) 21:03, 28 June 2011 (UTC)

Nomination of Eric Sprott for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Eric Sprott is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Eric Sprott until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on good quality evidence, and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion template from the top of the article. The Resident Anthropologist (talk)•(contribs) 00:51, 29 June 2011 (UTC)

Just for a while[edit]

I am just stopping by - I have promised myself to limit my activity (I have one or two things I might want to work on). I had to take a break with the number of pages I followed ballooning. Plus I couldn't take the constant frustrations with other users over stupid issues.

Request for PEGCC draft review[edit]

Hi Lamro, I'm reaching out to you because of your involvement with WikiProject Private Equity; I'd like to bring your attention to a relevant discussion I'm trying to get started at WikiProject Cooperation. As a wikiproject, WP:CO-OP is new: a joint effort between volunteer Wikipedians and COI editors, aiming to keep input from PR types above-board. In this role I'm in the latter camp, and this is why I'm here: I've researched and written a proposed expansion of the article about the Private Equity Growth Capital Council (PEGCC). I've done so on their behalf, and with their input, however I've also worked hard to make sure my draft follows Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. But I'm not a disinterested party, and others at WP:CO-OP don't know a great deal about private equity. If you would be willing to review the draft and give your feedback on the WP:CO-OP discussion, I'd appreciate it. In case you are busy, I've reached out to one other editor from Private Equity, but all are welcome. Cheers, WWB Too (talk) 17:47, 28 January 2012 (UTC)

Security Market Line & Negative Beta[edit]

I corrected the following passage that you added to the Security Market Line page, which was uncited and just plain wrong: "There is a question what the SML is when beta is negative. A rational investor should reject all the assets yielding sub-risk-free returns, so beta-negative returns have to be higher than the risk-free rate. Therefore, the SML should be V-shaped." I gave a citation to a textbook, which explains that negative betas will cause returns below risk-free, which are perfectly acceptable to rational investors. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Alan Davies (talkcontribs) 08:30, 19 April 2012 (UTC)

"a van Gogh"[edit]

Museum parlance. An English speaking curator would have said "That is not a van Gogh." He/she would never have said "That is not van Gogh's" (not unless it was chair or old coat that was being discussed, rather than a painting). Amandajm (talk) 13:39, 10 September 2013 (UTC)

X-Files images[edit]

I (along with Grapple X) have explained the situation to you before. Images must be critically examined in the article themselves. If they are being uploaded just to decorate an article, then they will inevitably be deleted. If they are decorative images, they will fail WP:NFCCP, most likely #8. Here's a good example: the image for "Closure" works because the filming of the scene is illustrated in the article, and thus the inclusion of the image aids the readers understanding. However, the image you uploaded for "4-D" is just an image of two people standing there. Nothing about it is discussed *critically* in the article (if the production of the scene was weird or interesting, or it included a lot of make-up that was praised/critiqued by reviews, then it would be OK to add). I'm not doing this to be mean. :) It's just Wiki policy, and a bunch of these images (like the "4-D" image that you uploaded) were deleted long ago.--Gen. Quon (Talk) 18:13, 11 December 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for uploading File:JHCovington pic.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image 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 that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Maxx Wiki Pages[edit]

Hi Larmo - i apologize for my late reply. i see you posted a message on my talk page about adding a "No More I can't stand it" page and i see you did one for "You Can Get it" - could you do me a favor? would you mind doing a wiki for "To The Maxximum" - "I Can Make You Feel Like" "Move Your Body" and the compilation album "Bravo Dance X-Mas" which features the maxx song "Power of Love" and Linda Meek's solo release called "rhythm of love" for that single she went by the name Linda M.

i also ask because you seem to be an experienced wikipedia guy and i'm not as fast. i'm also personal friends with Linda Meek and she has some future plans for Maxx so i'm trying to update everything. soul could you lend me a hand as a fellow Maxx fan? i see that Maxx is really popular among Russians. is it true?

thanks for the help with Maxx Wiki Pages[edit]

thanks for working with me on devleoping the maxx pages. i see your "to the maxximum" page. good job. you did it quickly too!! basically Maxx is gonna return soon. and i'm in the process of getting proper magazine sources and doing new interviews with Linda Meek and the producers to tell the story of Maxx. wikipedia's editors are being difficult with me and i'm just trying to make sure i can verify my true claims. i know the producers.

you made only 1 mistake. "The Movement" is not Real McCoy. that's a mistake. it is true that George Torpey (Jurgen Wind) producerd their beats. but that's a mistake. remove that. i know Jurgen..i'm posting an interview i did with him...online in a few months. The Movement is two people and a man who never was credited for writing all the Maxx and Real McCoy songs. Ojay (dawhite) was give credit for promotional reasons.

so i have an idea about updating The Real McCoy page properly and having page called "The Movement"

here are links to all of the other Maxx singles

https://www.discogs.com/Maxx-Move-Your-Body/release/727619

if you notice in my "linda" profile - i have pictures of michael jackson but it's just for spacing purposes. i have magazine articles. i have another profile called "Maxxmusicfan" on which i'm developing the maxx (band) pages. it's coming! if you could do "i can make you feel like" , "Move Your Body", & "Bravo Dance X-Mas" and Linda's "Rhythm of Love" signle- that would be good. there's no rush... i think we can work together to make this happen. thanks so much!!

new Maxx singles to add to wikipedia and revisions for Maxx singles pages[edit]

Hi Larmo its Elysegrogerfan. you were helping me with Maxx. please i need your help again. i have another account called Maxxmusifan where i'm creating a draft for Maxx (band)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Maxxmusicfan/sandbox it's very detailed and i make reference to other singles produced by the maxx producers and it tells the story of Maxx in great detail and i'm compiling my links and sources. But its just a draft. i use fake pictures to help me with spacing things. But I need your help again.

can you add these two titles below to wikipedia for me? i have created sources for you to make it easier. it's for "Move Your Body" and "Ich Bin Der Farmer" - i even created a summary for you to use.

ALSO FOR THE MAXX SINGLES you updated for

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Get-A-Way

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/No_More_(I_Can%27t_Stand_It)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/You_Can_Get_It

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I_Can_Make_You_Feel_Like

I like the changes you made. we will soon make more modifications and add more detail to this. to the background. but the PRODUCER part of the singles pages needs to be changes. You made the producer ‘the movement’ and it links to Olaf Jeglitza “Ojay” of real mcoy. Ojay is not "The Movement" This is a big mistake. Can you change this for me please? Just make ‘the movement’ not link to his page leave the text but take out the linking to "O-Jay". He’s not the producer of maxx. it's an error

here are the new additions i need you to make to wikipedia for me.

Ich bin der farmer (reggae cover single)

Ich Bin Der Farmer is a humorous German language cover version of Snow's raggae hit "Informer." [1] The single was performed by German rapper Boris Köhler (aka Bozo Der Boss)[2] and written/produced by musician Bruce Hammond Earlam and co-producerd by Jürgen Wind (aka George Torpey) and Frank Hassas (aka Quixmix) [3]. The single was released/distributed by Hansa Records in Germany in 1993 [4][5][6]. Because the single was commercially successfully, preliminary plans were made for Köhler to do more Bozo Der Boss singles, but music executive (David Brunner) halted these plans and reserved Köhler as rapper and frontman for the dance music duo act known as Maxx [7]. Kohler went on to have success in Europe with Maxx from 1993 to 1995 under his Maxx alias Gary Bokoe (aka Gary B.)

"Credits"[edit]

Hi, I've noticed some of your edits on album pages. Please, when you put in the list of people who worked on the album, title it "Personnel" - per the album style guide. And also please format it so it's "Name - function". Thanks --Jennica Talk 07:35, 14 November 2016 (UTC)

@Lamro: ?? - just saw you do it again on Callus (Gonjasufi album). [I look through new album pages]. I will fix it for you but please format it the correct way --Jennica talk / contribs 02:08, 25 November 2016 (UTC)

Uvitonic acid[edit]

Now that is a pretty obscure compound! According to chemical abstracts, a total 14 articles mention it. Nothing wrong in my book with obscure stuff, but probably is not notable enough to link in very extensively. IMHO. --Smokefoot (talk) 14:15, 22 November 2016 (UTC)

Obscure? Maybe so. But I have provided a number of references to support notability and to prove that the stuff is not as obscure as it seems to be at first sight.Lamro (talk) 14:40, 22 November 2016 (UTC)

Здравствуйте уважаемый Lamro! Вы сможете сделать статьи на английском про музыкантов Denis Maidanov (ru:Майданов, Денис Васильевич), Olga Kormukhina (ru:Ольга Кормухина) и Александр Иванов из группы Рондо (ru:Иванов, Александр Юльевич). Если вы сделаете эти статьи, то я вам буду очень благодарна! Спасибо! Thank you! --217.66.156.206 (talk) 15:09, 4 July 2017 (UTC)

: Я пишу на темы, которые мне интересны, исключительно для души. На заказ я статьи не пишу. Если любите этих исполнителей, то воспользуйтесь гугл-транслейтом и создайте англоязычные статьи сами. В чем проблема?

Lamro (talk) 19:59, 4 July 2017 (UTC)

Я не могу найти среди англоязычных редакторов википедии из России, которые интересуются музыкой. Подскажите мне пожалуйста! Спасибо! --217.66.156.206 (talk) 20:22, 4 July 2017 (UTC)

WikiProject Investment[edit]

Hey there! I just re-launched the WikiProject Investment.

The site has been fully revamped and updated and I would like to invite you the project.

Feel free to check out the project and ping me if you have any questions.


A1 Houston Office Oil Traders on Monday.jpg

I'd like to invite you to join the Investment WikiProject. There are a lot of Investment related articles on Wikipedia that could use a little attention, and I hope this project can help organize an effort to improve them. So please, take a look and if you like what you see, help get this project off the ground and a few Investment pages into the front ranks of Wikipedia articles. Thanks!

Cheers! WikiEditCrunch (talk) 19:43, 22 August 2017 (UTC)

Album dating and chronologies[edit]

Newark 1953 should not be in Category:1953 albums because it was recorded then but in the year it was actually released. Similarly, in the artist's chronology in the infobox, it shouldn't come first but in the order it was released. ―Justin (koavf)TCM 19:37, 22 September 2017 (UTC)
