Speedy deletion of Dupont Circle High Heel Race[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on Dupont Circle High Heel Race requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, 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, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for biographies.

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.

Downy Woodpecker[edit]

I was wondering if you thought this image was any better. I personally like it better, but I think it's a tad too grainy. -- Scorpion0422 06:03, 17 November 2007 (UTC)

Leopard Tortoise FPC[edit]

Hi Thanks for your vote at the FPC for the Leopard Tortoise. When you say average shot, what do you mean? Many users have supported the same pics stating that they are good. I have also added two more pictures for voting. Would you reconsider your vote?

Thanks. jjron and Ryo have uploaded edited versions of the image. Regards Muhammad Mahdi Karim (talk) 02:24, 18 November 2007 (UTC)

Re FPC Contributions[edit]

If you haven't been around FPC long then it is probably good to familiarise yourself with the process and typical behaviours.

One is that new voters, in particular voters with very few edits on Wikipedia, are often tagged as such under their vote. This is particularly so if the vote seems a little out of the ordinary, such as with those two very similar votes from new users at very close time. Now it is quite possible that the reason they were so similar is that the second was just repeating what the first said, but I hope you can see where it may be seen as suspicious by regulars on the project.

The main reason for tagging the new votes is because users with very few votes are the most likely to be sockpuppets. It is nothing personal against you or any other genuine new user/voter, simply to alert others to the fact that here is someone new to the project. FPC has been the target for many socks over the years, thus this warning message; this tagging has been done on dozens of votes, so please don't feel you were being specially targeted. However this is the reason for my comment "It doesn't mean their votes don't count, just that they need to be treated with caution until they 'prove' themselves.", in order to try to explain this to other voters that did not seem familiar with this process. I actually thought that my comment was quite polite, so am surprised to hear you say you were offended by it.

To be honest I have found your comments rather more offensive to other users, for example to say to Muhammed " lucky. All in all, it's a photo anyone could have taken." If, as you say, you are a photographer yourself, I'm sure a moment's thought would let you see where a comment like that would offend another photographer. Your comment on Mbz1's sand dune photo "...that artificial saturation is not fooling anyone" is again something I find rather more blunt than necessary. These users are uploading there own work to try to improve Wikipedia and these type of comments are what will drive them away. I agree with you that some voters and users we see on FPC clearly know little about photography, but in my opinion that is all the more the reason why we don't need to offend the ones that are trying to do their best and help out.

I would also suggest that if your vote is questioned on FPC that you answer that question there where others will see it, rather than responding on the user's talkpage, where other voters are unlikely to find your rationale, for example with your explanation of your 'average photo' comment. --jjron (talk) 08:10, 20 November 2007 (UTC)

Unacceptable commentary[edit]

Lipton sale, this comment is completely unacceptable. It was childish, foul and completely lacking in civility. Please do not do this again - Peripitus (Talk) 05:52, 29 June 2008 (UTC)

Perhaps you have not read about civil behaviour on Wikipedia ?. Continuing actions like leaving go fuck yourself usually only leads to you being blocked from editing the site. Please take this as a friendly warning, that will turn less so if you do not stop this behaviour - Peripitus (Talk) 20:34, 30 June 2008 (UTC)
