Hey there, did you ever figureout the solution to your "protected page" question here: Thanks!


Hi, thanks for the cool spinning barnstar! Martin 20:51, 14 August 2006 (UTC)

I fixed it now, it was getting confused the formatting of the table. thanks again! Martin 20:56, 14 August 2006 (UTC)

Re: follow-up question[edit]

Thanks for your help with my question, I am still trying to resolve the issue. When I went to tag the image (Playboy_March_2005.jpg) uploader's talk page, I discovered that this was not the first problem with a violation. What is the policy on repeat violation offenders?

Hm, I actually don't know how to deal with repeat offenders, but I imagine a warning of some kind might be appropriate. Perhaps you could try leaving a note on the administrators' noticeboard so an admin can take a look and leave the appropriate warning? I'm not sure if there's much else regular users can do, but I'm not really familiar enough with that sort of thing to be able to help too much, unfortunately. —Keakealani Poke Mecontribs 23:46, 14 August 2006 (UTC)


I've just met your bot request on Wikipedia:Bot_requests#little_bitty_bot. Let me know if you need any further assistance. Regards, alphaChimp laudare 02:50, 15 August 2006 (UTC)


OK. :) But I have something for you. :) When you finish a section, or an entry, you can just remove them. You don't need to strike them out or keep them at all. --Woohookitty(meow) 00:06, 17 August 2006 (UTC)

Imagevio vs. fairusedisputed[edit]

Hi there! I just wanted to say that when an image is tagged as "fair use", then you shouldn't use the {{imagevio}} template, but the {{fairusedisputed}} template if you think its use would not qualify under our Wikipedia:Fair use policy. Thanks! --Fastfission 22:12, 17 August 2006 (UTC)

Jones Fine and Performing Arts Residential College[edit]

Hey, I just wanted to tell you that, per [1], "not encyclopedic" is not one of the WP:CSD. Try prod or afd instead. Regards, alphaChimp laudare 03:51, 19 August 2006 (UTC)

deletion policy[edit]

I found a new page that is clearly crap, and I put a SD tag on it, but the creator deleted it. What's the deal? Lauren 20:12, 19 August 2006 (UTC)

Put the tag up again, and notify an administrator. —Daniel (‽) 20:14, 19 August 2006 (UTC)

Quoyle point[edit]

I saw you redirected it to The Shipping News. I wasn't fiinished editing it yet. The article is related to The Shipping News and could have been merged into it but I believe it is worth a separate article. Jorgenpfhartogs 22:43, 21 August 2006 (UTC)

No problem, I will expand the article soon. Jorgenpfhartogs 23:48, 21 August 2006 (UTC)

I'd like that actually. Started editing more actively recently and would like to receive some tips and help from more experienced wikipedians. Jorgenpfhartogs 00:15, 22 August 2006 (UTC)

Mille grazie, amici. Jorgenpfhartogs 02:23, 22 August 2006 (UTC)

Welcome to Esperanza![edit]


Welcome, Lawilkin, to Esperanza! As you might know, all the Esperanzians share one important goal: the success of this encyclopedia. Within that, we then attempt to strengthen the community bonds, and be the "approachable" side of the project. All of our ideals are held in the Charter, the governing document of the association.

Now that you are a member you should read the guide to what to do now or you may be interested in some of our programs. A quite important program is Stressbusters, which seeks to support editors who have encountered any stress from their Wikipedia events, and are seeking to leave the project. So far, Esperanza can be credited with the support and retention of several users. We will send you newsletters to keep you up to date. Also, we have a calendar of special events, member birthdays, and other holidays that you can add to and follow.

In addition to these projects, several more missions of Esperanza are in development, and are currently being created at Esperanza/Proposals.

If you have any other questions, concerns, comments, or general ideas, Esperanzian or otherwise, know that you can always contact Natalya by email or talk page. Consider introducing yourself at the Esperanza talk page! Alternatively, you could communicate with fellow users via our IRC channel, #wikipedia-esperanza (which is also good for a fun chat or two :). If you're new to IRC, you may find help at an IRC tutorial. I thank you for joining Esperanza, and look forward to working with you in making Wikipedia a better place to work!

Lauren / My e-mail[edit]

Actaully it simply displays my e-mail address to other fellow wikipedians on to my user profile and I had no awareness of that since it was on my User Id profile of that it was illegal. It was loaded up here through Wikipedia by me ? 22:26, 29 August 2006 (UTC)

Editing problems and mediation of Caravaggio[edit]

Hi Lawilkin. I find I can't edit articles. Has my ability to do so been suspended because of this mediation case re Caravaggio? I see myself as pretty much an innocent bystander - the dispute is really between Zefrog and Galassi. Can my right to edit be erintroduced for other articles, if I have to be suspended from the Caravaggio one? Thanks...PiCo 02:34, 6 September 2006 (UTC)

Update: I can edit on whole pages, but I can no longer see, let alone access and edit, individual sections. Don't know what the problem is. Can you help?PiCo 02:53, 6 September 2006 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Thanks for the wishes. Nice talking to you. Have a very nice time. --Bhadani 19:07, 18 September 2006 (UTC)

RE: Admin coaching[edit]

I can do. I'm not entirely sure what I'm supposed to do as far as coaching goes, but I'll check with Petros who co-ordinates the programme. -- Steel 21:08, 18 September 2006 (UTC)

Hi there,

As a user looking to Adopt with the Adopt-a-User program, there has been some ongoing developments that we would like to bring to your attention, as well as request help with the backlog at Category:Wikipedians seeking to be adopted in Adopt-a-user.

You should know that the way the adoption process works has changed slightly. To decrease workload at Category:Wikipedians seeking to be adopted in Adopt-a-user on offering adoption please change the {{Adoptme}} template to {{Adoptoffer}} on the user's user page, and this will add the user to Category:Wikipedians having been offered adoption. Users that have already been offered adoption can always have a second or third offer, but by separating out those users that have not had an adoption offer yet, it is hoped that no one will go lacking. Once adoption is complete please use the templates found here on the Adoptee's and your user page.

Also numerous Adopters have been adding their details to a list of users available for adopting, to offer a more personalised service and allow new users to browse through and pick their own Adopter. The quickest way to adopt though, is still to contact users at the Category:Wikipedians seeking to be adopted in Adopt-a-user.

Furthermore a new Adopter's Area has been created where you can find useful resources and other Adopter's experiences. Please feel free to add any resources you have and if you know of any useful resources for new users / Adoptees then you can add them here.

So I hope you get adopting soon - and if you have any general questions or suggestions about the further development of Wikipedia:Adopt-a-User please bring them to our talk page. Cheers Lethaniol 15:25, 13 January 2007 (UTC)

GAC backlog elimination drive[edit]

This form message is being sent to you either due to your membership with WikiProject Good Articles and/or your inclusion on the Wikipedia:Good article candidates/List of reviewers. A new drive has been started requesting that all members review at least one article (or more, if you wish!) within the next two weeks at GAC to help in removing the large backlog. This message is being sent to all members, and even members who have been recently reviewing articles. There are almost 130 members in this project and about 180 articles that currently need to be reviewed. If each member helps to review just one or two articles, the majority of the backlog will be cleared. Since the potential amount of reviewers may significantly increase, please make sure to add :{{GAReview}} underneath the article you are reviewing to ensure that only one person is reviewing each article. Additionally, the GA criteria may have been modified since your last review, so look over the criteria again to help you to determine if a candidate is GA-worthy. If you have any questions about this drive or the review process, leave a message on the GAC talk page. --Nehrams2020 00:24, 25 May 2007 (UTC)

July 2007 GAC backlog elimination drive[edit]

A new elimination drive of the backlog at Wikipedia:Good article candidates will take place from the month of July through August 12, 2007. There are currently about 130 articles that need to be reviewed right now. If you are interested in helping with the drive, then please visit Wikipedia:Good article candidates backlog elimination drive and record the articles that you have reviewed. Awards will be given based on the number of reviews completed. Since the potential amount of reviewers may significantly increase, please make sure to add :{{GAReview}} underneath the article you are reviewing to ensure that only one person is reviewing each article. Additionally, the GA criteria may have been modified since your last review, so look over the criteria again to help you to determine if a candidate is GA-worthy. If you have any questions about this drive or the review process, leave a message on the drive's talk page. Please help to eradicate the backlog to cut down on the waiting time for articles to be reviewed.

You have received this message either due to your membership with WikiProject: Good Articles and/or your inclusion on the Wikipedia:Good article candidates/List of reviewers. --Nehrams2020 23:31, 10 July 2007 (UTC)

WP:CVU status[edit]

The Wikipedia:Counter-Vandalism Unit project is under consideration to be moved to {{inactive}} and/or {{historical}} status. Another proposal is to delete or redirect the project.

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Stanley Dunin 2[edit]

Hi Lauren. You suggested Stanley Dunin should be kept as the man has done plenty of notable things. The sources in the article have been reviewed, and there are some very serious concerns that much of the claims made in the article are fabrication or exaggeration. Could I ask you to take another look and see what you think? Neil  08:30, 24 September 2007 (UTC)

Motto of the day[edit]

Hello, I notice you're using one of the {{motd}} templates, run by Wikipedia:Motto of the day. You may have noticed that some of the mottos recently have been followed by a date from 2006, or on occasion simply "Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia". The reason for this is that Motto of the day is in some very serious need of help. Participation in the project, which has never been especially high, has dropped considerably over this past summer, to the point we have had several days where no motto was scheduled to appear at all. Over the past several weeks, I've been the only editor scheduling mottos at all, but there aren't enough comments on some of these mottos to justify their use. If we do not get some help - and soon - your daily mottos will stop. In order for us to continue updating these templates for you, we need your help.

When you get a chance between your normal editing, could you stop by our nominations page and leave a few comments on some of the mottos there, especially those that do not have any comments yet? This works very simply; you read a motto, decide whether or not you like it, and post your opinion just below the motto. That's it - no experience required, just an idea of what you personally like and what you feel reflects Wikipedia and its community. If you do have past experience with the project, then please close some of the older nominations once they've got a decent consensus going. There are directions on the nominations page on how to do this.

If you have any questions, please let me know, or post on the project's talk page. I'm looking forward to reading your comments on the suggested mottos, and any additional suggestions you'd like to make. Until then, happy editing! Hersfold (t/a/c) 01:46, 4 September 2008 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Alessandro Russo[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Alessandro Russo, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process because of the following concern:

BLP unsourced for more than 2 years.

All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because, even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached. Mr.Z-man 21:20, 1 April 2009 (UTC)

GA Sweeps invitation[edit]

Hello, I hope you are doing well. I am sending you this message since you are a member of the GA WikiProject. I would like to invite you to consider helping with the GA sweeps process. Sweeps helps to ensure that the oldest GAs still meet the criteria, and improve the quality of GAs overall. Unfortunately, last month only two articles were reviewed. This is definitely a low point after our peak at the beginning of the process when 163 articles were reviewed in September 2007. After nearly two years, the running total has just passed the 50% mark. In order to expediate the reviewing, several changes have been made to the process. A new worklist has been created, detailing which articles are left to review. All exempt and previously reviewed articles have already been removed from the list. Instead of reviewing by topic, you can consider picking and choosing whichever articles interest you.

We are always looking for new members to assist with the remaining articles, so if you are interested or know of anybody that can assist, please visit the GA sweeps page. In addition, for every member that reviews 100 articles or has a significant impact on the process, s/he will get an award when they reach that threshold. If only 14 editors achieve this feat starting now, we would be done with Sweeps! Of course, having more people reviewing less articles would be better for all involved, so please consider asking others to help out. Feel free to stop by and only review a few articles, something's better than nothing! Take a look at the list, and see what articles interest you. Let's work to complete Sweeps so that efforts can be fully focused on the backlog at GAN. If you have any questions about the process, reviewing, or need help with a particular article, please contact me or OhanaUnited and we'll be happy to help. --Happy editing!

April 2010 GAN backlog elimination drive[edit]

WikiProject Good Articles will be running a GAN backlog elimination drive for the entire month of April. The goal of this drive is to bring the number of outstanding Good Article nominations down to below 200. This will help editors in restoring confidence to the GAN process as well as actively improving, polishing, and rewarding good content. If you are interested in participating in the drive, please place your name here. Awards will be given out to those who review certain numbers of GANs as well as to those who review the most. Hope we can see you in April.
