Thank you for adding Hurdy-gurdy to the Instruments project. It is much appreciated. -Fenevad (talk) 13:46, 9 January 2008 (UTC)

It's my pleasure. It is an instrument (and a good article, in both senses of the word), after all. --Evan Seeds (talk)(contrib.) 23:38, 9 January 2008 (UTC)

re: megabeat[edit]

It's cool. The megabeat is definitely a Detroit-regional term that is used within the punk scene. I'm looking to spread the use of this word as it really has no name yet is used throughout punk and hardcore, and even now pop-punk. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Pastpastdue (talkcontribs) 21:45, 10 January 2008 (UTC)

RE:Admin coaching[edit]

You got it, I'll be glad to help. I'll give your activities a once over to get an idea of what you do at the moment. If you want to tell me anything about your wiki-life you can leave me a message. Or you can email it to me. Got to run now, lectures beckon. Regards, SGGH speak! 09:30, 29 January 2008 (UTC)

About me:

I have been an admin since March 2007, and have had a fair taste of conflict, vandalism fighting, username work, notice board, revert wars, BLP, dispute resolution and so on, as well as the grunt work of gnoming, copy editing, tagging, speedy deletion, image copyright work and so on. I also have over 8,000 article edits (over 15,000 total edits) and 4 (soon to be [hopefully] 5 or 6) Featured Articles to my name, and I am the lead coordinator of The Law Enforcement WikiProject as well as a regular writer for The Military History Wikiproject where 3 of my FAs have a home (the fourth being a collective work for the cricket wikiproject.

--SGGH speak! 09:32, 29 January 2008 (UTC)

What I'll do in the mean time is create a subpage of my user page where I'll list things I've noticed that we can talk about. Things I feel you are doing very well, things that you might want to do in the future, things you might need to change, and so on. You can find it at User:SGGH/Administrator Coaching SGGH speak! 12:37, 29 January 2008 (UTC)
Big bunch of ideas there for you. Message me with your thoughts and we can discuss, theres instant messaging open to us aswell if you prefer a more rapid method of communication. SGGH speak! 13:12, 29 January 2008 (UTC)
I've replied to your comments in bold again. Two things strike me straight away, 1) you are very mature able handling constructive advice, that's very good. 2) Don't just focus on the (I'm not going to say negative, more un-positive) comments, remember to take on board the things I said you were doing well too, otherwise you might think it's all bad :) SGGH speak! 10:20, 30 January 2008 (UTC)
Take a look at Wikipedia:Requested articles/music, plenty there to get your edit count up, if music is your thing. SGGH speak! 10:22, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

Deletion of Hybrid Rudiments article[edit]

Fine by me. I just created this article to get the hybrid stuff out of the "rudiments" article anyway. IMHO most of what is in there is total crap. BTW, while you are in the process of deleting worthless articles, check out on the ones on Moeller Method, Snare technique, and Open, closed, open. Also, I haven't forgotten our discussion on diddles/drags, I just got back from vaction. Will respond to those soon. Thanks. Brad Halls (talk) 03:24, 17 February 2008 (UTC)


I just discovered that interesting little side-note on your user page…I once tried to play…it didn't really work out too well. Kakofonous (talk) 23:20, 17 February 2008 (UTC)

Yeah, it's definitely an acquired taste. If you want to play again, try checking out the beginner's spoilers here. For the record, a spoiler in nethack terms normally just gives away strategy and whatnot: there's really no storyline to give away. It's doubtful that anyone has ever beaten the game without some spoiler. --Evan ¤ Seeds 23:25, 17 February 2008 (UTC)
I responded to your comments over at User talk:Kakofonous/WikiProject Percussion. Kakofonous (talk) 04:20, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

RE: Admin update[edit]

That all looks excellent. You realise you can run the project from a main wikipedia page like Wikipedia:Wikiproject Percussion rather than a user subpage? Or is it just not ready yet? Other than that, looks excellent. Glad to see you are rapidly addressing the points I raised. SGGH speak! 09:52, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

Responses and the big move[edit]

I responded to your comments at User talk:Kakofonous/WikiProject Percussion and I think we are now ready to move into the WP namespace. What do you think? Kakofonous (talk) 02:24, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Just so you know, I'm not doing the rating thing right now because I'm gathering references for the great timpani rewrite. Didn't want you to think I was being lazy or something of that nature. Kakofonous (talk) 04:01, 19 February 2008 (UTC)
Oh, no worries at all. I don't expect you to work on this 24/7 anyway, heh. --Evan ¤ Seeds 04:18, 19 February 2008 (UTC)


Haha! Indeed. However, I created WP:ELVIS, so can I really be stealing from myself? XD Haha. LaraLove 04:39, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Touché. The only reason I caught anyway it was because I was stealing it myself for my new WP:WikiProject Percussion, so I can't say much, eh? >_> --Evan ¤ Seeds 04:48, 19 February 2008 (UTC)


I was thinking that it might make more sense to merge all the rudiment stubs into the single rudiment article and try for a featured list than it would to deal with all of them. What do you think? Kakofonous (talk) 21:21, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

That sounds reasonable, but I'd say drum roll should still definitely maintain its own article. You might want to talk about Brad Halls about this, since he's really into Rudimental percussion and all that. --Evan ¤ Seeds 21:49, 19 February 2008 (UTC)
I'll start drafting something. Kakofonous (talk) 22:03, 19 February 2008 (UTC)
And here it is. Kakofonous (talk) 22:40, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Rollback request[edit]

I have granted rollback rights to your account; the reason for this is that after a review of some of your contributions, I believe I can trust you to use rollback correctly by using it for its intended usage of reverting vandalism, and that you will not abuse it by reverting good-faith edits or to revert-war. For information on rollback, see Wikipedia:New admin school/Rollback and Wikipedia:Rollback feature. If you do not want rollback, just let me know, and I'll remove it. Good luck. ~ Riana 04:58, 20 February 2008 (UTC)

Writing for the Signpost[edit]

Hello. You expressed interest in writing for the Wikipedia Sign?post (sorry for the delay in responding). I'm sending this message to everyone who commented, so if you have any questions I haven't answered, please feel free to ask me, and I'll try to respond to specific questions.

Essentially, what I'm looking for is writers who can step in and write on subjects that are newsworthy from week-to-week. The content of the stories obviously varies each week depending on what's happening; this is discussed below.

There are three major parts to writing an article:

  1. Choosing a topic
  2. Writing the article
  3. Submitting the article

Part 1: Choosing a topic[edit]

As said above, topics will vary from week-to-week. For this week, these particular issues may be newsworthy:

  • Bureaucratship candidacies — There are a lot of bureaucratship candidacies this week, for the first time in about six or seven months. I'm personally covering this one for next week, but this is a good example of what might be newsworthy.
  • Encyclopedia of Life — This encyclopedia of species has been getting some press, and relates somewhat to Wikimedia project Wikispecies.
  • Hidden categories — For those technically inclined, this is a new feature that has some interesting implications.

For more ideas, and for ideas in the future, check the tip-line -- there are usually some good ideas there.

Once you've decided on a topic, make sure to sign up for it in the newsroom, under "Special stories", so that users aren't duplicating each others' work (though multiple writers are certainly free to work together on a story).

Part 2: Writing the article[edit]

Now, you've decided on a topic and signed up for it. To write it, create a subpage in your userspace. For my story this week on the bureaucratship candidacies, for example, I'll create it at User:Ral315/Bureaucratship candidacies. The name isn't a big deal, of course -- I'll change it if necessary.

Formatting the story isn't important; for your first article, you should mainly focus on writing a good story, and I'll take care of the formatting when we publish. Try to write it in a newspaper-like tone, avoiding personal comments and opinions in favor of straight-forward facts. The size of an article varies based on what the story is, but a good minimum goal for most stories is two-to-three good paragraphs. Longer articles are even better, so long as they're well-written.

Part 3: Submitting the article[edit]

Now, all you have to do is post a link to the article in the newsroom, where you signed up for it earlier. That's it! You're done!

Again, if you have any questions at all, please contact me, and I'll try to respond as soon as possible.

Thanks for your interest in writing for the Signpost. Ral315 (talk) 03:08, 29 February 2008 (UTC)

Maynard James Keenan discography[edit]

I've worked this back into the article, as it is very redundant of the main discographies, which I should have considered before creating it. I'm planning to tag it for deletion, but I wanted to get everyone's input first. Please reply here or drop a line on my talk page. Regards, LaraLove 02:09, 18 March 2008 (UTC)

WP:Wikiproject Tool update[edit]

A few updates in events:

  • Maynard James Keenan has been listed for copy-edit at the WP:LoCE, however, the backlog is quite long. Therefore, if anyone has copy-editing skills, please go over the article. I would do it myself, but I've done quite a bit of work on the article and I am incapable of copy-editing my own work.
  • Maynard James Keenan discography has been worked back into the bio and has been determined to be redundant of the main discographies. It will most likely be deleted this week.
  • Devo Keenan has been created. I think this is a good opportunity for the project to get together and create a DYK entry. The article needs to be expanded and referenced. Hopefully this is possible. I've not yet looked to see how much information is available. Please take time to help with this, if you can. We have four days!!

Thanks to everyone who has helped thus far. The project is still very new, but good progress is being made! LaraLove 04:00, 18 March 2008 (UTC)


Thanks for your work on the draft and congratulations on attaining the rank of Eagle Scout! Sorry I haven't been around percussion articles as much in the last couple weeks—working on some other music-related topics, most recently Gilberto Gil, which I happened upon and decided to give the love that it most definitely needed. Great to hear from you again, Kakofonous (talk) 22:24, 19 March 2008 (UTC)

Admin coaching[edit]

How are things going, especially your article writing work? SGGH speak! 21:05, 28 March 2008 (UTC)

Uh....not too great, unfortunately. As I believe I told you, I recently started WikiProject Percussion, but it seems to be stagnating. The only fairly active member (and co-founder) is User:Kakofonous, who's actually on wikibreak now. I did get a lot of work done on Rudiment, though. Also, I've been busy this month (getting my Eagle scout!), and my edit count seriously reflects this: only 150 edits compared to 500+ in both jan. and feb. Oh well, life comes before wikipedia. --Evan ¤ Seeds 05:03, 31 March 2008 (UTC)
Unless it's Jimbo. The good thing about RFA is inacitivity does not make you go backwards :) so take all the time you want, and I suspect your project will increase as time goes on. See you around, SGGH speak! 13:59, 31 March 2008 (UTC)
Hey Evan. I have been thinking of giving up the admin coaching, have so many other things to do. I hope you don't mind, personally I don't think you need any more of my help anyway, but feel free to ask any questions you might have whenever. SGGH speak! 14:30, 2 June 2008 (UTC)

Tap Tap Revenge 2[edit]

I notice that you tagged the page Tap Tap Revenge 2 for speedy deletion with the reason "{{db-a7}}". While that's a valid reason for speedy deletion in general, this page does not qualify for speedy deletion under that criterion because software is explicitly not allowed under A7. If you still want the page to be deleted, please consider tagging it with a speedy deletion template which does apply, redirecting it to another page, or using the WP:AFD process. Thanks! (Note that I've already redirected it to Tap Tap Revenge) Dori (TalkContribs) 02:20, 4 March 2009 (UTC)

Thank you for letting me know. I was not aware A7 didn't apply to software, but I am now. Tap Tap Revenge seems notable enough, and a redirect works fine for me. Thanks again --Evan ¤ Seeds 02:23, 4 March 2009 (UTC)

Moved comment from Metalcore424 talk page[edit]

Hello. I am pretty new to this whole thing. Could you explain to me which parts you think are not neutral on the article ProScout? I deleted the parts that most likely would hint at that. I would like advice on how to present the information without it sounding like an advertisement. Thanks.

Google Hits[edit]

What is 1390 google hits and how does a person go about checking that?

Thanks, User:Johnwynnejr —Preceding undated comment added 15:26, 6 March 2009 (UTC).

Deletion of Shaahin Mohajeri[edit]

Hi freind
I noticed that you deleted shaahin mohajeri:
Aren't these some important references :

And as Phil Bridger (talk) Commented :
"Has anyone checked out the Persian language references and links in the article? Or looked for any other Persian sources? If not then we can't claim that this lacks sources.(14:06, 8 March 2009)" (UTC)
Please find someone who knows farsi to check out the Persian language references and links and any other Persian sources.
And some other interesting things:
-Gets <300 Google hits . Is google hits one of the most parameters to delete?may be yes and may be no (-;
-This article is top heavy on self-promotion, see[1].If this is a problem so i can delete the picture (-;
Anyway , thanks your efforts for great wikipedia

Google Hits Question[edit]

Hello EvanSeeds,

You added a comment in my deletion page. This article we were discussing was National Ballot Access (now deteled). In our discussion, you mentioned that is had 1,390 Google hits and 0 Google news hits. My question is how would one go about checking google hits? Is it a free service or do you have to pay for it?

Thanks, John Wynne Jr. --Johnwynnejr (talk) 22:18, 4 April 2009 (UTC)

Google Hits[edit]

I think that you missed my question. Although I appreciate your response. I understand what "google hits" are. I don't konw how people look them up. Can you please give me some insight?

Thanks --Johnwynnejr (talk) 04:50, 23 April 2009 (UTC)

Google Hits[edit]

Thanks! I didn't know that.

1 more question though:

It says in the upper right corner: Results 1 - 10 of about 372,000 for john doe. (0.32 seconds)

I searched this today. Does this mean john doe got 372,000 google hits for the month of March? Or so far this month? Or how does that work? And what does the "(0.32 seconds)" mean?

Thanks for teaching me --Johnwynnejr (talk) 16:52, 23 April 2009 (UTC)

Illini Drumline page deletion[edit]

I would like to make the necessary revisions to the Illini Drumline wikipedia article in order to meet your standards for reinstating the page.

I am not a wikipedia expert, and I can't find the deleted page. Can you direct me to the deleted content?

I believe the page can be revised to meet the notability guidelines.


Dale Hallerberg

Hallerbergd (talk) 19:24, 23 April 2009 (UTC)

I'm afraid deleted content is not available to most users. If you contact a administrator, they may be able to help you, but I'm afraid I can't. --Evan ¤ Seeds 05:26, 24 April 2009 (UTC)


Thanks for explaining that.

I thought "hits" meant people # of people searching for that word or word combination. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Johnwynnejr (talkcontribs) 04:43, 25 April 2009 (UTC)

AfD nomination of Illini Drumline[edit]

Mr. Seeds,

I find your position very confusing. It appears you are a wikipedia expert. You deleted the content at Illini Drumline and welcomed me to edit the article. But I cannot edit the article because it's deleted. Catch 22. Yet now you cannot access the content and send me off elsewhere? Are you not an administrator of some sort?

I think it's presumptious to delete an article in an area where you have limited experience without first contacting the main author(s). A note on the discussion page is hardly enough. I don't login to wikipedia but once every 6 months or so, if that.

So could you please send me the article content so I can edit it to meet your standards? And an explanation of your personal standards for notability would be helpful. I'd prefer to handle this by email -- I don't quite follow the wiki discussion and talk board mechanics.

No administrator response to undelete request[edit]

It appears that the administrator who deleted Illini Drumline on your recommendation was "Aitias". I wrote them a note but I have not gotten any response. Do you have a recommendation for another administrator who might be able to help find the content which was deleted?

I would like to follow your suggestion to edit the article, so that it will meet your standards for notability. Of course, it is difficult to edit it since you deleted it. In the future, you should suggest that an article be edited before deleting it. As you can see, it would save a lot of wasted effort. Hallerbergd (talk) 18:48, 1 May 2009 (UTC)

Can you please help me with the undeletion of IlliniDrumline?[edit]

Wikipedia guidelines suggest that we all write with patience and professionalism. However, I'm having a tough time with that since you are providing exactly zero help solving a problem that you created. You proposed deleting the content, then recommended I edit it, which is impossible, then sent me searching for an administrator, who doesn't respond, then you say Go find another administrator who cares.

How about you take ownership of your actions and help find the content which you deleted so I can do the editing which you suggested in order to meet your standards for notability?

I guess I would also feel better about this if you were an expert in marching percussion or college drumlines. Are you? Hallerbergd (talk) 01:00, 4 May 2009 (UTC)
