What is the best way to handle that?

Regarding your removal of the Speedy deletion tag from GNU Netcat: I am not sure you read the explanation for deletion. It has been on the table for months now, and the people who voted all agreed that the article should be merged. Merging in my mind requires that the information be transferred from one article to the other (done!), and that one of the articles needs to go away (was trying to do that). So if there is a more appropraiate method for accomplishing these tasks, please let me know (I'm new). Thanks! Xrblsnggt 02:54, 6 July 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for the comment -- I replied on your talk page. --MCB 04:36, 6 July 2006 (UTC)

Aviation Accidents

Hi MCB, I wanted to explain to you here some of my rationale for that category, away from the CfD discussion. I have been doing a lot of editing on this subject lately, both fixing up existing articles that were in poor shape as well as creating new ones (for some surprisingly missing notable cases with lots of casualties, human interest etc.). It became clear to me that the existing state of the aviation accidents articles is a mixed bag. Some (very few) are well written and NPOV, some are poorly written, some are well written but POV. (remember that many/most accidents result in lawsuits, you can imagine a lot of advocates of the various parties trying to create influence by modifying WP article to their liking, with typically little if any resistance). If we at WP want to achieve a high level of professionalism, with quality, NPOV and standardization, we have a long way to go in this specific area. I myself am doing my best, but it is not easy, there are (unfortunately) lots of accidents, and very few other editors either care enough about them or are knowledgeable enough to contribute constructively. And many of the so-called 'experts' are actually POV-pushers from some side of the litigation, making this a very tough task from my idealistic perspective of just wanting the ideal neutral high quality WP article. So now I come to the Aviation Accident cat issue: by it being there, it allows an easy way to scan and navigate between the accident articles, to ensure their consistency and quality, or to read them (if you are just an interested passive reader wanting to be informed). Adding 'incidents' into the mix has a strong diluting and cluttering effect, as they are investigated differently and overall handled, by both government, courts and even the media, in a different way. We finally have a 'crash infobox', which I have been diligently working on inserting and validating in the various articles. I think that's a very important step on the road to standardization and quality. I think having the Aviation Accidents cat will also help a lot, as the other existing options are just not good enough. Thanks for your time and understanding. Crum375 14:13, 6 July 2006 (UTC)

Hi MCB, please see my response here. Thanks, Crum375 17:18, 6 July 2006 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/George Eyre

Looks like someone speedied these before I got around to reconsidering my vote. Had they not I might have changed my "vote" anyway. Cheers, JYolkowski // talk 22:27, 9 July 2006 (UTC)

Meaning of "athletics"

You are using athletics as a synonym for "sport". Only Americans do that. In the rest of the world "athletics" means what Americans call track and field. Category:Athletics (track and field) venues is for track and field venues. Category:Stadiums is for large, mainly outdoor, sports venues including "track and field" venues and Category:Sports venues is the comprehensive parent category. Twittenham 21:36, 10 July 2006 (UTC)

Hi, I completely rewrote this article, removing advertising and citing sources. Could you please review my changes and consider revisiting your vote? Thanks! --Aguerriero (talk) 17:43, 12 July 2006 (UTC)

Thank you! (re Steven Harding and WP:CP)

Thank you for handling the copyvio issue with the Steven Harding articles. I knew about the speedy deletion alternative for articles <48 hours old, but I wasn't quite clear how to go forward with articles older than that. Having seen the example, I know how to deal with this as it comes up in the future. Again, thank you! —C.Fred (talk) 17:11, 13 July 2006 (UTC)

Garden State Park

I've removed the {{advert}} tag because there is nothing in that section that is advertising language, or biased in any way. The information did not come from some brochure, but was gleaned from the relevant links of the various developers below. The area is undergoing a major redevelopment, and ther are a ton of businesses flowing into it. - CobaltBlueTony 18:02, 22 July 2006 (UTC)


awesome! glad to know there is someone around who know's their beef! i'm going to make another template for steak/cut/graphic location. its gonna look GOOOD. and its gonna really help picture where each steak comes from on the cow.

once everything is a bit more organized i'd like to work on improving info on the various cuts/types of steak, and i'd sure love your expertise if your willing. JoeSmack Talk 01:49, 26 July 2006 (UTC)

Alright, here's the {{beefbox}} infobox. You'll find the appropriate primal cut images uploaded:
|name=Beef Cuts
|steaktype=Standing Rib Roast

Please, spread the love where it needs it. There are many steaks out there I just don't have any clue what they're called. JoeSmack Talk 03:31, 26 July 2006 (UTC)

You know, i didn't know a stitch about templates or infoboxes either. If your interested in it, just tinker around in a sandbox with it or any other one, pretty much how i made these two. {{Cuts of beef}} was actually {{LedZeppelin}} just messed around with. We could possibly use beefbox changed a bit, with i dunno, a n/a in the steak cuts field. I originally made {{Cuts of beef}}, then was like, oh shit, what about all the steaks? Can't list a billion of em in the i made the beefbox infobox. We could use both but i think it'd be too cluttered. start seeing what looks good, be bold. i think beefbox could look better in terms of style and color and such, i just wanted to put it out there as a start. plus i always thought that image of the cow was insanely useful to see.
to make the link 'not clickable', if i've got your idea right, you just make a wikilink around it and it has to be the present article. For instance, User:MCB won't be bolded out cause its not the current page, but User_talk:MCB will. Alternatively, if you don't want to deal with that, you can always just bold a nonwiki linked word with ''' these ''' ---> these. JoeSmack Talk 19:53, 31 July 2006 (UTC)

Leading zeros on runway designations

Hi Mets501 -- just wanted to let you know to please check my post in Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Airports#No_leading_zeros_on_US_runways before proceeding with any mass change of airport infoboxes to eliminate leading zeros in runway headings -- remember that the U.S. Air Force does use leading zeros, and any bot program should be sure to take this into account. Possibly Naval Air Stations too; I'm not sure. Thanks, --MCB 18:22, 30 August 2006 (UTC)

I've responded on that page. Don't worry, I'm not starting any mass changes until I am positive everyone agrees. —Mets501 (talk) 18:29, 30 August 2006 (UTC)

Re: Space inserted after dot in middle of name

Hi, just wanted to point out a small bad edit, which was changing "Art.Net" to "Art. Net" diff. (Art.Net is the name of a web site, which uses that particular capitalization). I suspect there are probably some other sites in the .net domain that do the same, so it might be worth checking for something like that. Thanks, --MCB 03:49, 13 September 2006 (UTC)

Hi there. Thanks for catching that. The intent of that particular rule in my bot is to catch cases where someone doesn't correctly put a space between the end of one sentence and the start of another. It does this by looking for lower case characters, a full-stop, and an uppercase character. It also rules out some common cases (eg 'IMAGE.JPG'). As you suggested, foo.Net is probably used in a product name quite frequently, so I've added it (and a handful of other similar cases) as exceptions. Cheers! CmdrObot 20:36, 13 September 2006 (UTC)

Re: Deletion_of_article


Saw User_talk:Lentower#Deletion_of_article. Thanks for letting me know.

I'm glad for Wikipedia's sake that you are doing this. It's good to see responsible behaviour in any community.

I found the Speedy Delete surprising, granted comments like your's and Capi's, and the fact that the discussion didn't seem resolved.

In your shoes, out of fairness, I would let all established WPians who participated in the AfD know. On both sides. Capi lists some of them. I note you list both sides on Ryan's talk page, though you only listed edit counts for one side.

The editor who started the Delete chain, on the AfD, Samsara (talkcontribs), was having a set of exchanges with me, in several places on Template_talk:FOSS_celeb. I find his attitude and impatience in our exchanges on Template_talk:FOSS_celeb counterproductive to furthering WP's goals and helping less experienced editors along (which I am currently). He started the Delete chain in the midst of these discussions - his motivations are unknown to me - but perhaps the two are related. People are free to read both our words, and draw their own conclusions.

I'm much more concerned about the problems this all shows inside WP, then I am about the Deletion of the bio stub on me.

best -len Lentower 11:30, 16 September 2006 (UTC)

Quite a different way then email to coummunicate, bounching back and forth between disussion blogs.

best -len Lentower 11:33, 16 September 2006 (UTC)

Indeed I also found the Speedy Delete quite surprising, given that, even among the established WPians, there was certainly no consensus for deleting. The whole disproportional measure of effort coming in by some of the delete voters frankly seems more like someone's crusade to eradicate Len's article (perhaps fueled by some personal animosity or some other unknown reason) than an encyclopedic effort. Heck, we have an article on people like Brian Paul (wrote a library) and Ari Lemmke (whose contribution to Humanity, from the article, literally amounts to doing "mkdir linux"), yet we say that one of the FSF's founders is not notable enough to warrant his own? Please... Capi 13:09, 16 September 2006 (UTC)

Leonard H. Tower Jr.

Hi Michael. In response to your query, I did take a look at the votes in the AfD. However, I speedied the article not as a result of how the AFD was going, but because I would have speedied it if I had happened upon it and there had been no tags. In its current form, the article was a vanity page created by the subject that did very little to establish the notability of the subject. However, since there was almost nothing in the article anyway, it should be a trivial matter to recreate it with content that conforms to the Wikipedia manual of style and other relevant guidelines.

If you would like, I can look at the deleted content and reproduce it here for you, if you intend to recreate a suitable article and need any lost information.

Regards, Ryan Delaney talk

Len Tower again

The process wonkism to overturn the AfD decision of Len H. Tower Jr. has been successful, and the new discussion, along with my criticism of the process now being followed, can be found at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Leonard H. Tower Jr. (second nomination). Please note that previous votes/comments are not being taken into account. See you there. - Samsara (talkcontribs) 08:02, 24 September 2006 (UTC)

License tagging for Image:Grey-female-longhaired-cat-MaggieO-MCB.jpg

Thanks for uploading Image:Grey-female-longhaired-cat-MaggieO-MCB.jpg. Wikipedia gets thousands of images uploaded every day, and in order to verify that the images can be legally used on Wikipedia, the source and copyright status must be indicated. Images need to have an image tag applied to the image description page indicating the copyright status of the image. This uniform and easy-to-understand method of indicating the license status allows potential re-users of the images to know what they are allowed to do with the images.

For more information on using images, see the following pages:

This is an automated notice by OrphanBot. If you need help on selecting a tag to use, or in adding the tag to the image description, feel free to post a message at Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. 06:04, 26 September 2006 (UTC)

Image copyright violations

Hi! Just a heads up for you. I noted that you dealt with a query I had put on the help desk concering image Image:Castle hill.jpg which I had seen on another website and was coyrighted. It was in fact copied from:- [:]. The user has noted that and removed the tag you placed there. However the website does not indicate the image may be copied and used elsewhere. The uploader User:Usman uk has also removed tags from his/her other images you located and noted had copyright issues which appear to be copyrights of other websites. I have put another note on the helpdesk as further images to the Huddersfield article have appeared with no source. Richard Harvey 20:19, 25 October 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for the message. I am currently working through the users image contribs and putting a no source tags on those I find without any - there are quite a few. At least 14 of these are definate copyvios but they need a different tag. how do you put them up for speedy deletes, or can you as an admin do it? Richard Harvey 20:44, 25 October 2006 (UTC)

Help needed - Proof Reading, Editing of Affiliate marketing article

Hey MCB, you added the cleanup template at the Affiliate marketing article and we also had a little chat at the articles talk page. I spent today a large amount of time to cleanup the article. Structure, Some wording etc. and also expanded its content significantly. I already posted at the articles talk page asking for help from Editors that have better English skills than I do to go over the article and proof read it and maybe correct some wording here and there where my choice of words might have been not the best. I thought that you might be able to help or know somebody who is up to the task. There is still content to add, but I think the article is now in a much better shape than it was before. I really appreciate your contributions and support. Happy Thanksgiving. Cheers. --roy<sac> Talk! .oOo. 19:51, 23 November 2006 (UTC)

Hi, re. the guy User:Zora reported on AIV: He's been active for several days now, the point about his behaviour is not that any of his individual edits are vandalistic, it's that he mechanically targets Zora and reverts blindly whatever she does. It's a clear case of wikistalking and harassment. Please see multiple threads on ANI, search for "Angry Bahraini". The guy should be blocked on sight.
