Welcome Jay,

You have done a good job so far in Wikipedia (a.k.a. 'Pedia or WP). I can see that you're a serious Wikipedian interested in improving our project. If you stay for a while, you'll discovered that collectively, we're a cooperative and friendly community. We are all here to learn, and hopefully can give something back. If you have questions or doubts of any sort, do not hesitate to post them on the Village Pump, somebody will respond ASAP. Other helpful pages include:

Just keep in mind that while relevant discussions and constructive criticisms and are welcome, unproductive and/or destructive insults are not (see Wikiquette).

Who knows? Perhaps you'll soon become a Wikipediholic and make it into the list of Wikipedia:Most active Wikipedians! :-) --Menchi 09:34, Aug 17, 2003 (UTC)
p.s. Simply type four tildes (~~~~), then you can sign you name and date like I just did with mine. And please always do so after your post in Talk/discussion pages and Village Pump.

Hello! Hope you enjoy your stay here. Very nice contributions to scouting articles, btw. Thanks for the compliment on the maps. :) --seav 02:16, Aug 19, 2003 (UTC)

Thank you! Mang Kiko 03:37, 19 Aug 2003 (UTC)

Chinese Filipinos[edit]

Hey, since you're Filipino-Chinese (like me) can you create a page called "Filipino Chinese" or "Chinese Filipinos" Kennethduncan 09:04, 8 Apr 2004 (UTC)Kennethduncan

Your scout woodbadge bead pic[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Scout woodbadge beads.jpg. I notice it currently doesn't have an image copyright tag. Could you add one to let us know its copyright status? (You can use {{gfdl}} if you release it under the GFDL, or {{fairuse}} if you claim fair use, etc.) Thanks so much, Quadell (talk) (help)[[]] 22:30, Oct 5, 2004 (UTC)

While you're at that, Image:Achregerisk.jpg needs to be tagged as well. Thanks! --Ricky81682 (talk) 22:41, Dec 18, 2004 (UTC)
Thanks for taking care of those! How about the Baybayin images Image:Baybayin alpha.jpg, Image:Baybayin sample 01.jpg, Image:Baybayin sample 02.jpg, and Image:Baybayin sample 03.jpg. – Quadell (talk) (sleuth) 17:59, Jan 31, 2005 (UTC)

Filipino Wikipedians[edit]

Hi, you were listed in the Wikipedia:Wikipedians/Philippines page as living in or being associated with Philippines. As part of the Wikipedia:User categorisation project, these lists are being replaced with user categories. If you would like to add yourself to the category that is replacing the page, please add [[Category:Filipino Wikipedians|{{subst:PAGENAME}}]] to your user page. Thanks. :) Coffee 03:19, 12 August 2005 (UTC)

Since you appear to be inactive, I went ahead and placed the category on your user page. Coffee 04:20, 19 August 2005 (UTC)

Eagle Scout[edit]

Did you become an Eagle and Wood Badger in the Philippines or in America? Do the Philippine Scouts use the red/white/blue knot too? Just curious. We just started creating Wikipedia:WikiProject Scouting, which encompasses all Scouting. The initial members are mostly from America, so we could really use those with expertise from other areas. Visit the project page (just create yesterday, so I'm not done) and help spread the word. Rlevse 16:40, 20 January 2006 (UTC)

I am an Eagle Scout and Wood Badgers from the Philippines. I am living in the United States at present. If you were asking about the award knot, we do use a red/white/blue knot, but the Philippines uses a carrick bend instead of a square knot. I'd be glad to assist whatever I can --Mang Kiko 03:41, 23 January 2006 (UTC)
Great. I saw you signed up on the project. Feel free to help where you wish. I saw the images of the Eagle awards last night in an article on Wiki about Scouting in the Philippines. Rlevse 11:10, 23 January 2006 (UTC)

Scouting Barnstar[edit]

Did you see this proposal? Scouting Barnstar --evrik 19:48, 24 January 2006 (UTC)

No, this is the first time I learned about this Mang Kiko 23:47, 24 January 2006 (UTC)
  • Do you think you can create a new version of the barnstar that has a merit badge background and a bronze star?evrik 01:02, 2 February 2006 (UTC)

Scouting Barnstar - Where to put it?[edit]

I believe that the award that was created for the Scouting Barnstar should be a topical award. Scouting is a world-wide movement that has served youth in many countries for more than 100 years and represents the youth of the world at the United Nations.

It has been suggested that the award be given as a PUA. The first line on the PUA page reads, "This page provides a collection of awards created by individual Wikipedians." The Scouting Barnstar was created by the WikiProject Scouting.

Currently, the is a discussion going on at Wikipedia_talk:Barnstars#Removed_the_scouting_barnstar. Please comment there if you are interested.evrik

Zen wisdom[edit]

From the WikiMedia User Edit Counter Page:

A novice was once curious about the nature of the Edit Count. He approached the Zen master and asked, "Zen master, what is the nature of the Edit Count?" "The Edit Count is as a road," replied the Zen master. "You must travel the road to reach your destination, and some may travel longer roads than others. But do not judge the person at your door by the length of the road he has travelled to reach you." And the novice was Enlightened.

A novice was once curious about the nature of the Edit Count. He approached the Zen master and asked, "Zen master, what is the nature of the Edit Count?", but the master knew better than to give him answers that would only feed the mind. “The night is getting old – why don’t you retire?” said the master. So the novice proceeded to return to his room to retire and upon opening the door he saw the Zen master already sitting inside the room. At that moment the mind of the novice was opened (there is a shorter way, but I must secure the backdoor). -Mang Kiko 08:34, 2 February 2006 (UTC)

Scouting article work[edit]

If you are getting this, it is because you do or did work on Scouting articles (see Wikipedia:WikiProject_Scouting#Participants_and_primary_areas_of_interest).

As the Scouting WikiProject has been formed since early January 2006, we've had many great improvements made in this area of Wiki and I want to personally thank everyone for their help. We don't always agree on things, but we keep moving forward. YIS, Rlevse 22:09, 25 April 2006 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:American girl dolls logo.jpg[edit]


Thanks for uploading File:American girl dolls logo.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.

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).


  • I am a bot, and will therefore not be able to answer your questions.
  • I will remove the request for deletion if the file is used in an article once again.

St. La Salle Hall[edit]

Do you have any photos of its facade that you may release in a free license? Current photos are not really that descriptive. Moray An Par (talk) 07:58, 13 May 2011 (UTC)

Image tagging for File:Eagle Scout (Boy Scouts of the Philippines).png[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Eagle Scout (Boy Scouts of the Philippines).png. You don't seem to have said where the image came from or who created it. We require this information to verify that the image is legally usable on Wikipedia, and because most image licenses require giving credit to the image's creator.

To add this information, click on this link, then click the "Edit" tab at the top of the page and add the information to the image's description. If you need help, post your question on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions.

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

Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 00:05, 20 September 2011 (UTC)

Proposed blackout in protest of RA 10175[edit]

Dear Mang kiko,


As a Filipino Wikipedian, I hope you are aware of the passage of Republic Act No. 10175, also known as the Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012, which was signed into law by President Benigno Aquino III on September 12, 2012. Currently, there is a discussion on the Tambayan, the noticeboard for Philippines-related topics, about a proposed blackout of the English Wikipedia in the Philippines in order to protest the passage of RA 10175, similar to the blackout against SOPA and PIPA held earlier this year. I feel that your input on the subject will definitely help in the discussion.

Please feel free to participate in the discussion at Wikipedia talk:Tambayan Philippines#The Cybercrime Prevention Act, and I hope your input will help the Filipino Wikipedia community determine which is the best course of action against this law. Similarly, we hope to get as much input from as many Wikipedians as possible.

Thank you and maraming salamat po!

Kind regards,

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
