In this article Controversies section defaming and attacking on TV9 organization. So I have edited and added positive stuff which is true. and earlier reference citations or not standard websites, also article not following proper wiki guidelines. So please co-operate with us

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TV9_%28Telugu%29 — Preceding unsigned comment added by 119.235.54.133 (talk) 08:08, 10 December 2011 (UTC)

Thanks Sureshtv9 — Preceding unsigned comment added by 119.235.54.133 (talk) 08:07, 10 December 2011 (UTC)

Sorry, but Wikipedia is not yours. This article is about your company - and you do not own the article - everyone's allowed to edit. Now, the controversy section is sourced - it won't be removed. If you continue to do so, I will report you for disruptive editing - I would rather not do that. Please, stop removing, and discuss with the community. Thank you, -- MSTR (Chat Me!) 08:11, 10 December 2011 (UTC)

Hi MS. I'm just letting know I have declined your CSD. After you tagged it, article now has sufficient refs to claim some notability. Please consider looking for refs before tagging articles. Happy patrolling! --Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 15:14, 10 December 2011 (UTC)

I had tagged it prior, hence the discussion on the article's talk page - but barring that, thank you! -- -- MSTR (Chat Me!) 15:49, 10 December 2011 (UTC)

Religion

HI on the Page of Zulfikar Ali Bhutto there is constantly multiple users who keep changing his religion from Traditional Sunni Islam, to Shia Islam/ Traditional Shia Islam , over the past month at least 5 editors have vandlized and changed the religion, despite the fact there are two sources saying he was TSI , and worst part the vandlizers change the religion with out even changing or checking the sources given . Please can you change the religion back to Traditional Sunni Islam, and ensure than the religion of ZAB is LOCKED to Traditional Sunni Islam.... the most recent edit was here , and looking at this particular user all his edits have been in bad faith and vandalising --Multan47 (talk) 05:59, 11 December 2011 (UTC)

Kucove District

Hello

I am a resident and citizen of the city of Kucove Albania, and I made some corrections about my city, I added more information about its economy and current state. How the hell you flag my comments when I have grown up there and you know this better than me ? I don't want you to touch my things anymore. You have no business interfering with the history of my city. Deal with the history of Melbourne, you got enough there. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Johny1005 (talkcontribs) 09:17, 11 December 2011 (UTC)

Please assume good faith when communicating with me. Oh, and I direct you to this wonderful policy, WP:OWN ~ this is the third policy you've seen today, the other being WP:AGF and WP:OR. Thank you, -- MSTR (Chat Me!) 09:23, 11 December 2011 (UTC)
Johny, nothing good will ever come out of attacking or threatening other editors. I think it would be to your benefit to walk away from the computer for about an hour so that you don't end up getting yourself blocked for repeatedly attacking someone. I can guarantee you'll get a lot farther if you just stay calm. (Oh, and Melbourne, it may be a good idea to put {{talk header}} at the top of your page.) --Davejohnsan (talk) 17:12, 11 December 2011 (UTC)

Children Who Chase Lost Voices from Deep Below

Hi, I don't know any reliable sources from which to cite it, unless you want me to cite the movie itself. Far as I know, there isn't a real plot synopsis anywhere on the internet (which is generally somewhat unreliable anyways). Then again, I suppose I'm fairly knowledgeable about Shinkai and Miyazaki, as I have actually taken seminars on both directors in college-- however, it wouldn't be correct to cite my professors as they have never really provided a plot summary. Ticklishmusic (talk) 21:38, 11 December 2011 (UTC)

A more brief plot, without adding anything that could be challenged ~ ie. don't go into terribly too much detail. Also, "Spoiler" warnings are unnecessary, and spoil.ers are infact allowed, per WP:Spoiler. If you have any other questions ~ need help with anything, please ask. Happy Editing! -- MSTR (Chat Me!) 02:36, 12 December 2011 (UTC)

John Findley Wallace

I came across the page describing my great grandfather, John Findley Wallace, and noted that his middle name was incorrectly spelled as "Findlay". When I endeavored to correct it, my edit was rejected by MelbourneStar. I do not understand. You can find the correct spelling in any number of sources (I have newspaper columns from that era announcing his appointment as Chief Engineer of the Panama Canal). The McCullough book "Path Between the Seas", as well as the most recent book "Panama Fever", all spell his name correctly.

Jncwallace (talk) 09:40, 12 December 2011 (UTC)

According to Wikipedia and Internet sources, the middle name is spelt with an "A". If you have reliable sources stating otherwise, please do provide. Thank you, -- MSTR (Chat Me!) 09:42, 12 December 2011 (UTC)
In fact the web sources vary on the spelling of the name, and a Google Books search gives many more sources with the "e" than the "a", so it's at least plausible that the spelling is incorrect as it stands. The "Report of John F. Wallace", which you would expect to spell his name correctly, is only available in snippet view but Google indexes it as by John Findley Wallace. Mike Christie (talk - contribs - library) 12:40, 12 December 2011 (UTC)
I tried it on Google with an 'E' but the "Did you mean .... ?" suggestion came up. -- MSTR (Chat Me!) 12:46, 12 December 2011 (UTC)
I don't think we can automatically take that to mean the suggested spelling is right. Google Books is a better way to search for sources anyway, since so many internet sources are simply copies of Wikipedia information; this article has been around with this spelling for three years, after all. I think on balance we should move the article to the "e" spelling, leave a note on the talk page about conflicting sources, and leave a note for the new user to that effect. What do you think? Mike Christie (talk - contribs - library) 12:49, 12 December 2011 (UTC)
Caught me at a bad time - 'bout to go to sleep ;) - anyway, we all want the same thing here, and that's is to have it spelled correctly. So, I personally like the idea of changing it - and the article's name (can't forget that) and then leaving a note on the talk page. So, I guess you may proceed with the changes! Thank you :) -- MSTR (Chat Me!) 12:56, 12 December 2011 (UTC)
Done. Thanks! Mike Christie (talk - contribs - library) 13:59, 12 December 2011 (UTC)

Said Shavershian

I was thinking a bit more about this last night - he passes GNG, so you are about 90% of the way there. I'm sure not every bodybuilder who gets found using steroids makes the news in two states, so there must be something about him that has made him famous. What is it? Has he won an award or competition? Does he compete at the highest level in amateur bodybuilding? Is he involved with community work? Even the fact that he has a large fan base could very well be enough, per WP:ENTERTAINER. After all, he does pass GNG. It comes back to assertion of notability - if you can find something, it would have a much better chance at AfD.
Also, another thing which might help is that you don't necessarily have to get your "assertion of notability" from a "reliable, secondary" source (like a newspaper). The sources regarding the drug incident are enough to pass that test. As you rightly pointed out, self-published and other less reliable sources can be used in articles about the person in question. So things like Formspring and SimplyShredded can be used for information about Shavershian (they just can't be used to pass GNG).--Yeti Hunter (talk) 21:46, 12 December 2011 (UTC)

And let me guess I need to reach the 100% mark? Okay, I will try. Thanks for this, really.
  • First off both Shavershian's are starring in The National Road Trip (Please examine the channel - although it's on YT, don't be fooled) -The show is part of Filmotion Productions - Cast memebers have explicitly called it a "TV show" ~ According to FMA it's not, but, "This video production was produced originally as an online video for youtube. Because of its ongoing success on youtube we're looking at continuing our production as a web series. More is yet to come on a weekly basis." Now I have no idea if FMA is "notable" ~ this is the only article I found in Google archives, mentioning the production company: [1]
  • "A pin-up boy of the amateur bodybuilding scene has been fined $400 and ordered to pay $79 in court costs for possession of anabolic steroids." SMH ~ Pin-up (According to web definitions, is: "cover girl: a very pretty girl who works as a photographer's model." - In this case it's for a "boy".) ~ so maybe he's "notable" for his looks?
  • According to Shavershian's fan-page on facebook (which has 30,500+ fans ~ a non-notable person with that many fans?) The above SMH article in dotpoint 2, even mentions his large fan-base. [2] More fans on Facebook than Australian TV reporters: Melissa Doyle ([3]), Grant Denyer ([4]) ... More fans than Australian shoows, "The Morning Show" ([5]), Today Tonight ([6]) -- Said even has more fans than Liberal Leader Tony Abbott ([7]) (which to me is no surprise.. ;) ). I know Facebook is really informal ~ but it just shows where he is on the world's largest social network site.
  • Sources call Both Shavershians "Ameteur bodybuilders" - even though they don't compete ~ they simply show their body's around.
  • I know this might not mean a lot but, Said has appeared on: Network Ten; ABC ([8]), Sydney Morning Herald (multiple times; [9]); News.com.au ([10]); The Daily Telegraph ([11]). I think that's somewhat nearlly evertything I remebered ~ I hope it somehow works out - I don't know if it will - but maybe. Thank you, -- MSTR (Chat Me!) 00:45, 13 December 2011 (UTC)
Like I said, it's a borderline case. I must admit, 30,000 fans is a fair bit. My advice would be to point out the facts you mention above (fan base, being reported as a pin-up, etc) to the AfD, along with the "significant fan base" clause of WP:ENT. You could very likely win some of the inclusionists to the keep side. At the end of the day, it does seem a little odd to me that his activities have been reported on at all - perhaps he really is a celebrity as you said all along.--Yeti Hunter (talk) 02:07, 13 December 2011 (UTC)
Maybe I'm asking too much, but is your stance the exact same as it was prior to me showing you this? And also - are IPs allowed to vote? -- MSTR (Chat Me!) 02:13, 13 December 2011 (UTC)
This is great, now I'm going have the whole non-fanbase of Shavershian, voting against the article. What's the point? -- MSTR (Chat Me!) 03:29, 13 December 2011 (UTC)
IPs are allowed to "vote" (although it's not really a vote as such), however they generally are not given as much weight as actual users. To be honest, I still think it's not quite enough. However I'm not familiar with celebrity notability guidelines, if there even are any. I frankly think it's unlikely to succeed if there is no additional notability (such as competing). Just wait and see - it's not the end of the world.--Yeti Hunter (talk) 04:46, 13 December 2011 (UTC)

St Bede's school, Hailsham

St Bede's School, Hailsham

I am the website content Manager at St Bede's school and have been directed by our Headmaster, Dr Richard Maloney, to correct and update the article about the school which appears on Wikipaedia.

I have tried updating several sections, and it seems to accept the changes ( I preview first and then save when I am happy that section is correct.

However, when I have updated one section, and then update the next, the first one has reverted to the original, error-filled version.

As this is my first experience of Wikipaedia I am somewhat at a loss as to what I am doing wrong, or what i need to do to get my corrections accepted

Bob Brown Bob.brownatstbedes (talk) 11:32, 15 December 2011 (UTC)

Hi Mr. Brown, and Welcome to Wikipedia,

Your content is perfect - it may need to sound a little more neutral - but other than that it is fine. However, before you save your changes, it is important that you cite a reliable source to corroborate your edit. You can do this by: <ref> <-- A reliable internet/book source should be in between these "refs" --> </ref>. If there is anything else you need to know, or if you are still confused, I'm right here. Thank you, -- MSTR (Chat Me!) 11:38, 15 December 2011 (UTC)

St Bede's School, Hailsham

Thank you so much for the help you gave in your reply earlier today. i have made all the corrections to the text, and everything seems to work.

Three problems remain

I cannot work out how to change the Contents table, which is now slightly out of line with the article.

an error message about the references now appears at the end of the article and I can't work out what i've done wrong or how to cure it.

We would also like to change and add to the photos in the article and i'm not sure how to do this.

( I also couldn't work out how to add this message to the ones earlier today on the same topic)

I was very surprised to see your date of birth! I am about 4 times your age (63), and obviously know a great deal less about wikipaedia! What made you write the article about St Bede's, Hailsham in the first place? Do you go to St Bede's college in Victoria?

Anyway thanks again for your help, and if you can give me further advice I really would be most grateful.

Regards Bob brown Bob.brownatstbedes (talk) 15:50, 15 December 2011 (UTC)

Everything seems to work, I'll just make a few tweaks, even re-word a few sentences to make it sound more neutral - but other than that, excellent job. 63? well there's no age limit here on Wikipedia, you'd be accamponied by many Wikipedians who are actually older than you :) I personally didn't write the article myself, I edited it. I currently attend St James College, Victoria - in year 11 I'll be at St Bedes Victoria :D
Anyway, you also asked for help - you don't know how to have this section merged with the previous? all you have to do, instead of creating a new section, on the original section, look at the title - then look far right - and you'll see an "edit" button. Press that, and you'll be able to edit that section :)
If there are any other issues or questions you may have, I'm all ears :) -- MSTR (Chat Me!) 01:05, 16 December 2011 (UTC)

Back to work today and I have been trying to update( and add ) photos to the page ( these are all in Wikimedia common under my upload name Bob.brownat stbedes.

two have successfully gone in , but the third one is only displaying the file name (Atrium of new Boarding House, St Bede's school Hailsham.jpg ) and the title, not the photo itself. Any idea what I have done wrong?? I would be most grateful for any advice. If it is easier to use normal e-mail my address is bob.brown@stbedesschool.org

Comedy Club China

Hi There Melbourne,

Just wondering WHY exactly you keep tagging my page on COMEDY CLUB CHINA. In 7 days, the largest newspapers in Beijing are doing a reportage on the comedy night. The only open-mic in Beijing is being led by this group. Their links are emerging as far as Hong Kong (TakeOut Comedy).. so what exactly are you looking for in terms of "reliability"?

Cheers & Thanks for any advice :)

You article was deleted, because it did not assert any notability - and even if it did, it had no reliable sources to verify its notability - therefore constituting to original research. VinayStan, one thing you can do, is nicely request an Administrator to "Userfy" the deleted article - so although it won't be an article as of yet, you will be able to work on it - in a sub-page of your User page.

References

Hi Mel,

As you pointed out I adapted the references, which are now ISO 639 and point directly to their (other language) target. I restored the additional genealogy info and external genealogy references though. I guess they were washed away when you reverted because of the non ISO 639. Hope you forgive me my clumsiness; didn't know how to refer to different/ other language Wiki pages, so put them in as references. But I do know now! Thanks for pointing it out.

edit "Cold Fusion" Nine References to Pathological Science Should Be Moved to Historical Footnotes

To improve the article:

1) Wiki needs to view it as science.

2) Wiki needs to recognize which scientific journals are utilized and sourced by scientists in this field of physics.

I predict a tremendous increase in the readability of the article.

Query to the scientific community: To the Directors of Physics Departments,

LENR - Low Energy Nuclear Reaction and Widom Larson Theory, aka Condensed Matter Nuclear or Lattice Enabled Nuclear; historically misnamed "Cold Fusion"

1) Is this science or pathological science?

2) Do you offer a class in this discipline? If so, please provide information.

3) Are you developing a curriculum of this science? If so, when will you offer it?

4) What peer review journals do you utilize or source in this field?

MelbournStar, P>S> 1) Any suggestions or criticisms before I move forward with this? 2) Is this direction of query able to yield opinions the Wikipedia forum on Cold Fusion may value?

Hello, I'm a newbie to Wiki and kinda lost, so I just randomly picked your name assuming you're admin and could delete my edit.

Hi and Welcome to Wikipedia!
I think you're reffering to this account ~ it hasn't been blocked, so there are no worries there. However I have taken a look at the edit summary on the article - it was innapropriate, and has already been reverted by another editor. What I recommend doing, is apologising to the editor ~ then asking a kind administrator (I'm not one yet) such as Kudpung and ask that the edit summary be removed - since the article cannot be deleted for obvious reasons such as it passes core policies etc. Thank you, -- MSTR (Merry Christmas!) 01:14, 27 December 2011 (UTC)
(talk page stalker)I agree with apologising to the other user, but you might want to just mention that you want the edit summary removed at WP:ANI explaining that you agree that you were out of line.

Raqib nizami (talk) 21:43, 27 December 2011 (UTC)From the beginning i am noticing that there are a group of editors like you whose goal is to praise Muhammad bin abd al wahhab and removing some undeniable fact which are from NPOV.First of all he is not a hero or role model of Islam.in fact 90% of the Muslim(whether Sunni or Shiya) population hate him and criticize his works.According to thousands books of historic references and thousands Fatwa written by Eminent Muslim Scholars,Shaikhul-Ulama,,Shaikhul-hadith,Shaikhul-Islam,Mujaddids "Muhammad Ibn Abd-al-Wahhab" is a Kafir(disbeliever),Murtad(apostate),kharji(those who went out),Dajjali fitna.Not only that but also he is considered by non Muslim Scholars,writers, historians to be the birth place of all controversial matter(now a days referred to Islam because of him) extremist,terrorist,creed of evil etc.Such a controversial person need proper introduction which should be full of ref and from NPOV.but most of the editors are trying to ignore the fact and by baseless editing they are trying to portrait him as a Revival/wali/mujaddid of Islam!They are not able to face the ugly truth because they are trained to deny it.I am giving a proper short intro and assessment part which i established by various sources but not it seems its not quiet enough.So please before you are undoing an edit that is not vandalism, explain the reason in the edit summary. please familiarize yourself with Wikipedia policy, particularly on Primary Sources, on Reliable Sources, on Verifiability and on Citing Sources.

Ritchie Blackmore, Tennessee, and French film

Hi. I was reading Ritchie Blackmore's bio and i noticed odd edit patterns as they seemed to back each other up, so i had a look at some editors, User:Ewin has also made edits to the two subjects (Tenessee edit 2009 Tennessee Volunteers football team, and French actress: Emmanuelle Devos). User:Msgv has also made edits to Tennessee politics (Jimmy Duncan (U.S. politician)), and French actress (Juliette Binoche}. User:Xbvca, Tennesse politics, and French actress (Françoise Brion), User:Testu, Tennessee politics Chuck Fleischmann, French actress Danielle Darrieux). User Gfl, who like user Testu has made edits to Tennessee politician Fleischmann, User:Devinn, made edits to French born actress Claudette Colbert as has User:Ure. Next user, User:Imrie, also has a fondness for Blackmore, french actresses (Véronique Genest), and you've guessed it, Tennessee politics (Bob Corker, as has user Gfl), User:Diora Tennessee politics (Harold Ford, Jr.) and french film (André Cayatte). So, Blackmore, Tennessee, French film seem to be the common subjects of interest. The user(s) doesn't appear to be causing any vandalism (as i didnt see any swear words).GrampsSydney (talk) 16:42, 28 December 2011 (UTC)

Re:Notability

Greetings!

This is in response to your message.

Notable in the sense that there would have a listing perhaps, on the YouTube celebrities page. He might have been a notable personality before his death, but apparently not notable enough to warrant an article here. Pursuant to [[WP:BLP1E, biographic articles featuring persons famous for a one-time event and otherwise fairly low profile are not encouraged. If you take a look at my contributions, you might notice I was behind the creation of the article Yam Ah Mee. Briefly, Yam Ah Mee gained brief fame in Singapore as the returning officer for two elections in my country this year. The article wouldn't qualify under WP:BLP1E because Yam is the head of a statutory board and he's hit the news in other capacities after the elections. Hope this helps. Paul 1953 (talk) 10:11, 30 December 2011 (UTC)

With all due respect, I can't agree with that. If he's gotten YouTube's attention. A Wikipedian's attention - myself, from a country that's on the other side of the world. The attention of celebrities such as Kid Cudi and Kim Kardashian - he obviously has notability. His YouTube channel is only going to get more popular. I've seen BLPs that are disgusting - in the sense that they are full of OR ~ or don't have the appropriate sources to verify their claims - however, this non-BLP does have the sources. And yes, it does have the notability. 2,000,000 views. 2 million people. They would know this person. 90,000 views on his article in 24 hours - atleast half of the articles here on WP, don't have that many views in a whole month. I'm not saying the article you created is badly written - it's perfect. But if you compare the pair - Breedlove & Mee - 90,000 views in a Day Vs. 686 views in a Month. Call me blind, or stubbourn, but I'm not seeing this article as not notable. -- MSTR (Merry Christmas!) 10:51, 30 December 2011 (UTC)
Fair enough. But perhaps the case I presented wouldn't exactly be a fair comparison, because Yam's fame was limited to Singapore. Breedlove is an internation phenomenon. Perhaps Ted Williams (voice actor would be a fair comparison. In William's case, after his discovery, Williams has continued to hit the news. Job offers, fundraising, struggles with sobriety. 90, 0000 views on his article in 24 hours is to be expected, to be fair, for his (obviously) one-time death. Paul 1953 (talk) 07:00, 31 December 2011 (UTC)
D.O.D. Was Dec. 25. Article created 29th - 90,000 views...30th - 130,000 views. His YouTube fan base will only increase ~ so will his multiple pages on Facebook. Millions of people know this person... -- MSTR (Merry Christmas!) 07:05, 31 December 2011 (UTC)

Per "Dead" Ohlin

Hi! I saw that you reverted the change I made to Dead's page. Now I'm new to editing so I don't know how you should do everything and I get if you think it's unsourced, but I was not sure if I should leave a reference as I wrote in the text what book the interview with his brother was from or how you reference to a book. I can assure you that it was no good faith edit however. That was a real interview with his older brother and a serious book. I would be happy if you could tell me how to properly reference it and I'll do that. All I want is to share knowledge, but I understand you have guidelines to go after and I don't yet know how to follow all of them. Regards.

Aziz Shavershian

Melbourne Star, I know that this for whatever reason is a very touchy subject for you. However, I would ask that you remain as civil as possible in our discussions. Thank you.

That said, I would of course doubt Aziz if he said he was the Prime Minister of Australia. There would be reasonable doubt as to the authenticity. The fact that he is not (obivously because he's dead) and never was is easily verifiable.

However, in the case at hand:

  • 1.the material is not unduly self-serving;
  • -Check. There is nothing self-serving about verifying the fact that you smuggle heroin.
  • 2.it does not involve claims about third parties;
  • -Check. Aziz is talking about himself only.
  • 3.it does not involve claims about events not directly related to the source;
  • -Check. Aziz has a first-person account of his own actions.
  • 4.there is no reasonable doubt as to its authenticity
  • -Check. Why would you doubt Aziz's own words?
  • 5.the article is not based primarily on such sources.
  • -Check. There are other sources in the article as well.

Don't play games with me, Zuloon. Any person who has heard of Aziz, knew he was a little thing called a troll. -- MSTR (Happy New Year!) 04:41, 3 January 2012 (UTC)
I would conciser that statement to be a violation of WP:BLP and could open Wikipedia up to liable. I reverted the info. BTW: I am a relative noobie. Jim1138 (talk) 04:52, 3 January 2012 (UTC)
Noobie or not, you've shown experience, and there is no evidence and the authenticity of the source is shot. WP:NEWSORG trumps WP:ABOUTSELF when content is disputed - anyday of the week. -- MSTR (Happy New Year!) 04:57, 3 January 2012 (UTC)
Thank you for your quick response. However, I would ask you once again to please remain civil throughout our discourse. I am not "playing games" with you. I am trying to do the best I can to ensure that Wikipedia remains an objective source for information. I am also wondering why, if his formspring can't be trusted, it is cited so often. Shouldn't his height be listed as unknown? It would seem to me that he could easily be lying about that. Of course, you seem to be good at detecting what is authentic and what is not. Maybe we should make it a rule of thumb that if something could be interpreted in a negative light, that it isn't authentic? That is, after all, what we seem to have been doing so far.
Also, zyzzcentral is cited at least twice. Should I delete those citations along with the material that cites it? We did come to the conclusion that zyzzcentral is unreliable, did we not? I think it was you yourself that said zyzzcentral can't be trusted because there is no editorial oversight. It would seem that there is no editorial oversight for formspring either, unless I am mistaken.
You used your last point, that Aziz was a troll, as grounds for throwing out the fact that he was a drug dealer. I fail to see how, with the standards that we have established for this article, you can simply discard that fact willy nilly. He said in his response for the formspring question that he was going to "chill out, go beaches, sight seeing, smuggle heroin, check out landmarks, the nightlife, etc just the usual". In other words, smuggling heroin is just "the usual" for him. Again, I'm left wondering what rules we are using to throw out legitimate statements made by the man himself.
Please respond, but please also remember that we are trying to have a civil discussion here, and not a civil war.
Sincerely,
Zuloon (talk) 17:36, 3 January 2012 (UTC) talk
Zuloon I had written a whole essay on your talk page - but you ignored it. So please don't even think about lecturing me on civilness. Barring that, to make it more easier for you to understand: If there is something controversial - WP:ABOUTSELF can be applied, But with a completely reliable source (news) directly supporting what has been said. If you don't like that, well I'm sorry - maybe make a blog, and put whatever you want to on it about him, because unless the authenticity of the Formspring post is bulletproof, it's out. -- MSTR (Happy New Year!) 00:31, 4 January 2012 (UTC)

I lost my temper

I tried my best. I tried to see the Policies as they were written and be open-minded...I didn't know a lot about what Wikipedia really was before a few days ago, but I sincerely did try to become educated instead of just throwing opinions out there. It just doesn't seem to matter when the "older" members of the community have spoken. I did not mean to be someone who hasn't put other work in as far as other articles, I just am pretty lost here. I am upset, however, because even the main page seems to make it sound as if it is perfectly OK to become involved here...when the experience of trying to do it is very different. I hope Ben Breedlove's page is not deleted. I believe with all of my soul that there is something Relevant, unique, and ongoing about this person and his life. I have read it and seen it spelled out so clearly...out there in the "real" world. I wish I could have helped. TinaPetersontinam (talk) 00:04, 4 January 2012 (UTC)

I hope the same thing too - but it's not worth being sad about. Wikipedia is Wikipedia. Having an article about yourself - doesn't mean your more special than someone else - people may think it's an honor, but If you think about it, it isn't really. What happens when you're a celebrity and you run into strife? media reports on it. Celebrities usually have a section called "Controversy" - If I was celebrity, I wouldn't think of Wikipedia as an honor at all.
In Ben's case. A Wikipedia article on him - is only a brief way of showing his life. His video's are usually the first place to go, to get to know him. He's been seen all around the world - from the US, down here to where I am, in Australia. A Wikipedia article is probably not going to make a difference. My stance is still Keep. This is just something you should keep in mind. Please don't feel discouraged. -- MSTR (Happy New Year!) 01:06, 4 January 2012 (UTC)

Petersontinam, Wikipedia has politics like every other big organization. It is perfectly OK to get involved here—but there is still very much a hierarchy of users and authority, one that you consider unfair. What most people, including myself, have learned is not to bother complaining because change is difficult on Wikipedia. It's disappointing that you are taking Breedlove's page personally, as Wikipedia is after all a privately owned and operated website that could just as well see the management censoring whatever they want and still calling it an "encyclopedia". Your opinion wouldn't matter then, either, nor would mine. But I digress. If you are touched by Ben's life, pursue memorials for him elsewhere and forget about the Wikipedia entry. Even if the article is kept, I don't like to see you getting chewed up by others over the politics and whatnot. The people who stay out of the way on Wikipedia are usually the happiest. You're smarter than more than a few of the kids on this site; I'm sure you have more knowledge to contribute than just that about Ben Breedman. But in the end, it's just a website. Ben won't be forgotten regardless of whether Wikipedia remembers him or not. /ƒETCHCOMMS/ 02:32, 4 January 2012 (UTC)

Thank you both for the insight and kind replies. Emotions are funny, aren't they? They spur you to take actions, which can be good, but they also get in the way sometimes. I have a terrible handicap of not reacting well to things that I think are unfair. I agree that Ben won't be forgotten, but I truly hope that this page stays so that when people seek him out they can learn more about him. I think that further information about him being added as time goes by needs a place to be added to. I guess we will soon see what happens.Petersontinam (talk) 14:51, 4 January 2012 (UTC)

two have successfully gone in , but the third one is only displaying the file name (Atrium of new Boarding House, St Bede's School Hailsham.jpg ) and the title, not the photo itself.

Hi Mr Bob Brown and Happy New Year!
I have fixed the problem, here, (hopefully that is what you were inteding for). The issue - a common mistake - is that the title of the image was incorrectly filled out in the article - if it's title is missing words, or words have been added - that photo does not exist - on Wikipedia. So next time, just remember to fill out the title correctly, and then you will be able to see those really nice pictures on Wikipedia. Yes, that atrium picture looks really great!
If there is anything else you need, I'll be here. Thank you, -- MSTR (Chat Me!) 02:04, 7 January 2012 (UTC)

There's no doubt that this article will be AfD's in the future. If it goes so far in being deleted, I will be appealing it. This is absolutely absurd, to delete an article - with that much notability. The "did you see? he's decreased in notability" - well that's what generally happens when you have died. Is the Michael Jackson article still as popular as it was when he was alive? No. I can name other celebrities that have died - still their articles aren't flourishing as they once used to. We have articles on historical significance - what happened accross last month and this month - and is still going - that's history. Articles on former companies that no longer operate - why are they still there? This is cherry picking at it's best. I sure as hell won't endure another AfD without the facts. Because not only are they a waste of my time, a waste of yours - but they definately question my editing - and no, not a great feeling to have. Sorry about my rant.

Melbournestar: Thank you for your answer. I was being hypersensitive to someone finding fault with the article, in any way, who might have used it against "keeping", sorry. I checked the history and was amazed at the edits to the article that bordered on vandalism (though I haven't been here long enough to be sure of vandalism or much else). You are doing a great job, and seem to work your butt off for Wikipedia. There is a lot of passion in this community, and that will inevitably cause heated debates. I agree with what you said above. Think of this, 17,000+ hits in one day is a crazy amount still- and shows relevance. There are thousands of articles here that have only a hundred hits in a month. I am frightened at the people I am seeing that are talking about putting this article right back to AfDPetersontinam (talk) 23:54, 8 January 2012 (UTC)
Thank you, Petersontinam, you're doing a marvellous job of asking editors questions - getting to know our policies. Most people would say a first edit on Wikipedia, be on an AfD - is a bad isea - I think otherwise. Not only have you gotten to know editors, but have gotten to know our policies - strict some of them are - but that's how the cookie crumbles. With the Ben Breedlove article - I don't like what's happening either. I can tell you now, my mind won't be changing tommorow, next week, next month. It will be the same opinion now, that I'll have forever. It's ridiculous that there are claims of no-notability - yet he's been mentioned by world news organisations. I think this is a good idea - I'll see how to add it in. -- MSTR (Chat Me!) 01:11, 9 January 2012 (UTC)
