Greetings[edit]

I enjoyed reading your bio. You have lead a very interesting life. I'm glad a talented individual such as yourself is part of the Wikepedia brotherhood. I am a political scientist by training and as such have an appreciation of the famed Learned Hand, (a possible distant relative?). As for myself I edit a lot of films -- film noir, world films, and American. Best to you and your family. ♦ Luigibob ♦ "Talk to Luigi!" 03:15, 5 April 2008 (UTC)

Wrestling terms with their own articles.[edit]

Hi. I see you've added "Blade", "Face" and "Heel" to the Glossary of professional wrestling terms. While these are no doubt wrestling terms, they have their own articles. The glossary's purpose is to explain unfamiliar terms, and is usually Wikilinked to from a wrestling article. In these cases, it would make more sense to Wikilink to the main articles on these terms, which explain them better. Duplicating them here doesn't serve much of a purpose, as far as I can see, and may encourage editors to link here instead of their articles, but maybe I'm overlooking something? InedibleHulk (talk) 23:26, 2 December 2012 (UTC)

Hi back. Yeah, the issue I was seeing there was that there were uses of those terms in the other entries, which were unlinked. For example, Blue-Eye, said "See Babyface" and Babyface wasn't there at all, nor was it wikilinked to the article on "Face". So I thought maybe the thing to do would be put a brief entry for it but then link out to the main article with "(Main article)" wikilinked to "Face". Then I re-thought that and decided to just wikilink the term header. Yeah. I think the glossary should include all terms, since not everyone will have the same line between what is and is not a familiar term, but we definitely want to link to the main articles as visibly as we can, so that other articles won't just link to the glossary entry when there's a fuller entry. Hard to know what's best, huh? Manushand (talk) 23:20, 3 December 2012 (UTC)

Sometimes. With a page like this, I think the main readership is comprised of fans who already know what face and heel mean (hard not to know, after any time on the wrestling-related Internet at all) and non-fans who are here to check on a word they read/clicked elsewhere on Wikipedia. In both cases, I think it works best to leave these terms out of the glossary and redirect any Wikilinks to the articles. That way, if they just want to know "It means good guy", they can glance at the lead. But if they want to read more, they don't have to click another link. Same should go for any other term with an article. Yes, there might be non-fans who want to know all the slang, for some reason. But how many could that be? I hear you on the "see Babyface" thing. I'd be for removing those, too, if it makes things simpler. Nobody really says blue-eye anymore, anyway. InedibleHulk (talk) 01:00, 4 December 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, I agree with you. Feel free to make the changes you're suggesting. I would hope, though, that any use of words like "face" and "heel" in the actual definitions of the terms would be wikilinked. Thanks for staying on top of things! Manushand (talk) 03:20, 4 December 2012 (UTC)

I've removed them, and Wikilinked to the articles in many of the entries where the terms are used. Not in every entry, per WP:OVERLINK, but once per letter section. I think this should be satisfactory, but if not, let me know. InedibleHulk (talk) 17:06, 4 December 2012 (UTC)

Public domain assertions[edit]

Hi! I saw the images you recently uploaded (File:James Vincent Casey.jpg, File:Urban John Vehr.jpg and File:John Henry Tihen.jpg) were uploaded using a tag that contradicted the reason you gave for them to be in the public domain ({{PD-US}} is almost always for works published pre-1923, see Wikipedia:File copyright tags/Public domain). I replaced the license template with {{PD-Pre1978}}, which fits better given what you asserted when uploading the file, but could you please check the other licenses listed, as a different one might fit better? Otherwise can you please confirm that there is no assertion of copyright on either side of the postcard? Many thanks! Storkk (talk) 18:24, 1 February 2013 (UTC)

Hi Storkk! Thanks very (very!) much for commenting about these. I admit I was not sure 100% that I was doing things right, so thanks for adjusting what I did. I did indeed check both sides of the postcard (and actually, it's not really a postcard now that I think about it -- there is no room for writing or addressing on either side; the reverse is a prayer for the new [as-of-the-time-of-this-card's-issuance, unnamed] Archbishop of Denver), and there truly is no claim of copyright or anything of that sort. If you'd like, I would be happy to photograph both sides of the card for you to examine. Again, thanks very much for your help! Manushand (talk) 04:13, 2 February 2013 (UTC)
