talk page editing[edit]

I've reverted this edit of yours because it changed section headings and removed comments without creating an archive. You can move comments to Talk:Political science/Archive 1, but you should only do it verbatim, that is, don't change the section headings. After that, link the archive page from the top of the current talk page. --Joy [shallot] 09:42, 23 Jan 2005 (UTC)

re: talk page editing[edit]

You've deleted all the comments about this, so I'm not sure if I should answer those that were temporarily there, or not? --Joy [shallot] 23:39, 23 Jan 2005 (UTC)

Oh, they're at that talk page now. Never mind, I'll answer there. --Joy [shallot]

Moving page errors[edit]

Not really the right place for that request, but I'll look at it for you. Noel (talk) 19:07, 28 Jan 2005 (UTC)

PS: I don't usually check other User_talk: pages (so that I don't have to monitor a whole long list of User_Talk: pages - one for each person with whom I am having a "conversation"), so please leave any messages for me on my talk page (above); if you leave a message for me here I probably will not see it. I know not everyone uses this style (they would rather keep all the text of a thread in one place), but I simply can't monitor all the User_talk: pages I leave messages on. Thanks!

OK, I think I got it straight.
For future reference, to create a Wikipedia:Redirect to e.g. Fact-value distinction from some other title, you just need to edit the other page so that the contents are just "#Redirect [[Fact-value distinction]]" (just that one line) and then any reference to any of the other titles will automatically take you to the target named in that line. Noel (talk) 19:26, 28 Jan 2005 (UTC)
Thanks for the help on my redirect problem --Mikerussell 05:17, 2005 Jan 29 (UTC)
Sure, no problem, you're welcome. Noel (talk) 13:25, 29 Jan 2005 (UTC)

Regina v. Richards 49 C.C.C. (2d) (1980)[edit]

I added some comments to Keith Richards article/discussion, leave any comments below if one wants.-- 21:48, 21 Mar 2005 (UTC)


Dear Mikerussell, you have heavily attacked my comments on the Martin Heidegger - Talk page. I'm afraid this is a misunderstanding. Sam Spade had taken out the parts of the article, and I commented on them. You are right that the article is now very unneutral because the whole nazi involvement is missing. I will try to reinsert the thing. - You accuse me of having a bias, this is true as of talking privately, I heavily reject the largest parts of Heidegger's philosophy and see its connections to nazism. You accuse me of searching for an exculpation, which is ridiculous. Please read my comments and keep in mind they are not to be taken into the article, but were comments on a paragraph on the talk page taken out my someone else, Sam Spade, of whom I have no knowledge at all. The problem I had was the Spiegel interview. You ask: "What is wrong?" I have told so: in the whole interview, there is no comment anyway that links nazism to eastern German communism - this was a factual inaccuracy in the article! So I cannot have failed to address this analogy because H. never built it. Nor is there, in the interview, a reference to the holocaust comparing it to food production. Heidegger made this comment, but not in the Spiegel interview, but in a lecture, c. 1949. I wanted to clarify this. -- 16:44, 23 Mar 2005 (UTC) (de:Benutzer:Chef)

See, I have reinserted it. I still do not see what is the point of the whole Celan paragraph, and, by the way, the so called "conclusion" is far more POV pro-Heidegger than anything I have written.-- 17:15, 23 Mar 2005 (UTC)
Oh, maybe I was a little cranky, and I did not know who took what out, in fact I had a difficult time knowing who- you, or Sam Spade- was making the comments. You might want to 'sign' after ever comment to make things clear. I thank you for letting me know that you are sensitive to the issues, and I wish i had more time right now to investiagte the der Speigel interview, I still think there was a reference to East Germany and the Holocaust, You say there is not, so until I can get to the library, I will defer to your judgment. I appreciate your input.--Mikerussell 21:41, 2005 Mar 23 (UTC)
OK, thanks. I have re-read the interview and there is no comment on East Germany at all, just a small one on communism in general and not in any closer connection or comparison to nazism. But see for yourself.-- 19:20, 24 Mar 2005 (UTC)


Just wondering if you have a personal connection with Burford given the detailed (and accurate) assessment of the town you've given. I'm from the town originally. -- Matty j 19:41, Jun 21, 2005 (UTC)

I worked at the high school for a year. Being a 'city' person, living in or close to Toronto and Detroit all my life, I was impressed by Burford and the students. It gave me a glimpse of small town life. The little blurb in the article is just from a scrap of prose I had scribbled around with.--Mikerussell 03:04, 2005 Jun 23 (UTC)

Fact-value distinction[edit]

Hi Mike, this article of yours seems to be nearly identical with Is-ought problem. Could you incorporate it into the other one and place a redirect? I will also place the appropriate merge templates. --Ozan Ayyüce 13:15, 9 August 2005 (UTC)

I don't know why you would want to say that the Fact-Value Distinction is less known, or should be collapsed into 'Is-ought', you got things backwards, really. This article is out on the Internet in many non-wiki encyclopededia, (just do a google search to see) so it has value and should remain as such. The article is directly related to Ruth Ann Putnam's articles with the same title. If people want to expand it- fine- but to merge it is to deprive the work of a useful article, that carries much more currency than just 'Is-ought'. --Mikerussell 16:53, 2005 August 9 (UTC)

Keith Richards....[edit]

I read an interview at the time when Voodoo Lounge was coming out where Jagger stated he dug "Wicked As It Seems" and that "Love Is Strong" was inspired by it. It was also on a MuchMusic special when VL came out.

Secondly, the color schemes that I put in for the albums are the ones that have been approved and designated by Wikipedia. Orange for regular studio albums, darkseagreen for compilations and darkturquoise for live releases. I didn't choose the schemes, but that's what they are and they have to be followed for consistency.

Thanks... BGC 12:32, 19 October 2005 (UTC)

Nick Dyer-Witheford[edit]

Re-added NPOV tag along with explanations on the talk page. Thanks for pointing this out to me. (clem 12:16, 20 October 2005 (UTC))

Looking for this quote[edit]

Hey dufi, nice profile, makes you seem likr you still work at UTM, why don't you confess your corporate soullessess or did you piss off another boss. This is what you may want to incorporate in the George Grant article.

"The study of philosophy is the analysis of the traditions of our society and the judgement of those traditions against our varying intuitions of the Perfections of God" circa 1950. Jorge Lima, aka Dr. Byfield's physician.-- 00:52, 26 January 2006 (UTC)

Thanks, if I ever get more time I will try to add it. Why don't you do it yourself. Since when is a university not a 'corporation' too?--Mikerussell 00:54, 31 January 2006 (UTC)
I added the quote in this section [1]--Mikerussell 18:32, 10 February 2006 (UTC)
Mike - good job on the Grant edit. I have been working on it in my spare time, although you have done a fabulous job most recently. I would like us to add in some political activities to the article, as Grant was fundamentally opposed to Vietnam War and then had a doctrnal falling-out with the New Left. As well, Grant's excitement over the PC Win in 1984 turned sour just before his death with the announcement that Mulroney was seeking an FTA with the USA. All worth noting. TrulyTory 03:21, 14 February 2006 (UTC)

Hazel McCallion's "ideological pretensions"[edit]

I suppose this is rather belated, by six months or so, but it is the first time I read your comments and they sparked my curiousity. To say that Mayor McCallion has no ideological pretension means she does not closely or recurrently align herself with a clearly defined political party or right or left wing policy framework. You're definition must be different, at least I am assuming, so before I make a revision to the article in the future, I thought I would ask for an explanation to your problem with such an accurate assememnt. In the new edit I will add info on how she has worked with both provincial and federal parties and her own lack of a university education which may be a contributing factor in the absence of an ideological orientation. Also, the fact she is a municipal politician adds much, if not all-to-obvious, weight to her absence of defining herself as a party affliated politician. Quiet frankly, I think you are biasing the article out of your ignorance. --Mikerussell 07:08, 26 February 2006 (UTC)

To write that she has no ideological pretensions or orientations is meaningless opinion and cannot be proven. If it is meant to mean something else, then it should be written another way. As it was written, I could read it to mean that McCallion holds no ideology above any other -- that, for example, she'd be equally comfortable with Trotskyite Communism and Mussolini Fascism. If you wish to state "she does not closely or recurrently align herself with a clearly defined political party or right or left wing policy framework" then that's what you should write, and provide sources to prove. I myself have some doubts on the latter part, and would watch for neutral, reliable sources to back it up (as opposed to original research). Also, I respectfully request that you refrain from making assumptions about my ignorance on the subject. Cleduc 19:31, 26 February 2006 (UTC)
It strikes me as biased or POV to interpret the word ‘ideological’ in this article- a civic leader in Mississauga- in the fashion you have in your response. Do you seriously think the average reader would assume she is a Trotskyite? Get a grip on the language used, and not a strict, exaggerated interpretation of the word. We cannot assume every wikipedia reader is a moron; the context under which one writes cannot be debased by some irrational standard applied by a single opinionated contributor. Apart from taking a rather straightforward and frank assessment of your qualification on the topic, namely Mayor McCallion and Mississauga’s governance, too personally, you have failed to offer much in response to counter my original astonishment at the surprise I have at your edit of the article. I will try to add more and replace a picture that as taken down, but overall, unless you really think that it is prudent, logical, or good prose to make certain ‘ideology’ a word coined by Karl Marx and tied to his view of History, a word almost totally divorced from its original meaning, which currently covers a wide spectrum of political opinion, is used in some strict academic fashion, then I suspect we will meet again on the Hazel McCallion page. Thanks for the response. --Mikerussell 00:34, 27 February 2006 (UTC)
I look forward to reading your changes on Hazel McCallion, and encourage you to look for sources which document her freedom from ideology. Words are what we have to work with, and they matter. Cleduc 00:53, 27 February 2006 (UTC)
I don't want to pick a fight, but in re-reading this whole exchange I thought I might clarify a point. The reason why I said "Quiet frankly, I think you are biasing the article out of your ignorance" is not anyway intended as an assessment of you or your background- that is why I said you misconstrued it too personally, but perhaps I was not clear. The statement was/is based on my reading of the article and your contributions to it (as seen in history listing) which do not provide any information on what ideological position she does have. My actual comment way back when (6 months ago) was she has 'no set ideological pretensions'- italics now added, which you saw as POV, but you have not ascribed her any ideology either, thus you must be 'ignorant' of what ideology she has, yet certain she has one. Well, what it is it then? You add info about ring tones, but nothing about her ideological views, why not? That is why I claimed you were 'ignorant', it was a 'descriptive' evaluation in my mind of what the article currently states. At any rate, just thought I would make that comment clear because it may be days before I get around to getting a usable picture and updating the article. When I do, I am sure you may have comments. However, you must also be prepared with, in your words, to have "neutral, reliable sources to back it up (as opposed to original research)" to support your own opinions. Thanks for debating. --Mikerussell 05:01, 27 February 2006 (UTC)
I'd like to congratulate you on writing a great article on HMcC. I think you've done a good job of establishing balance and giving background: lots of how, lots of why. It tells a story -- something a good article does, and so many articles unfortunately do not.
On the talk page I'm going to solicit sources for a couple of points. It is not because I believe they are untrue -- quite the contrary. I think they are important points, and I want the article to cite the sources for them. A comprehensive list of verifiable sources is one of the measures of an outstanding article. I think that with those sources, and a little expansion, this could easily become a featured article. Cleduc 03:57, 13 April 2006 (UTC)

Silly Old Berk aka Keef Rishids[edit]

Erm... the story relating to the parody was broadcast on both national networks of the ABC (= your CBC) and was rebroadcast several times on the ABC 24 hour news radio network (and for all I know on Radio Australia). The ABC got it from a NZ radio station. They must have thought it was funny. You must be standing too close to the US if you don't find it funny enough to include given most of the material on the insignificant twat is as tivial as they come. I don't think you should be so solemn but I won't start a revert war. Cheers Albatross2147 13:21, 15 May 2006 (UTC)

  • I just read through the discussions on the Keith Richards page. Hells bells is he your Dad or something? Maybe we should change the article to "Keith Richards (proprietor Mike Russell)" (- just kidding). But really I do think that you are possibly taking him a bit too seriously - cheers (again) Albatross2147 13:43, 15 May 2006 (UTC)

Good work on the template, but why have you removed stub tags from several articles? They're still needed. 23skidoo 15:35, 18 June 2006 (UTC)

Re: Spoiler tags. I've been told to err on the side of caution on this one especially if the summary gives away the ending and/or major plot developments. Wikipedia has developed a culture of "better safe than sorry" (take a look at how it handles copyright issues -- very paranoiac at times). And that seems to apply to spoilers as well. I include them as a matter of rote because I've received enough complaints when I don't include them. 23skidoo 18:00, 18 June 2006 (UTC)

Keith Richards edits[edit]

I understand you edited the Keith Richards contributions I made, but I feel that editing ALL the information contradicts Wikipedia's purpose. I provided documentated information on Keith Richards that is relevant to the page. I did add one Keith Richards quote that I failed to cite due to not fully understanding how to properly cite quotations. I have read up on citations and feel that since the information is cited below it is relevant and worthy of inclusion on the page. If possible, is there anyway to use the information I provided if organized in a better way? If you feel that some of the information I provided was placed in wrong areas, is there anyway you can transfer the info to the proper place on Wikipedia whether that be the Keith Richards page, Rolling Stones page, Rolling Stones discography page, etc.?? The information I provided would better serve people with an interest in Keith Ricahards. Please include the text I provided. Thanks you.

Citations for the Keith Richards quote I provided:

[2] (March 12-13, 1977)

Source for the text I provided:

Bockris, Victor. [1993] (2003). Keith Richards: The Biography New York: Da Capo Press. ISBN 0-306-81278-9

Mike, thank you for reinstating the information on the Keith Richards page!! The setup you used is more effective and user friendly than what I previously posted!! Thanks for adding the source information on the Rolling Stones "Complete Recordings" book. I forgot to cite than important source information. Sorry for the problems, I am quite new at contributing to the Wikipedia page and am not very computer literate to began with.

I would like to add very brief information to support the "popular bootlegs" section (2 paragraphs at most) on the proposed "Bad Luck" solo album and include that information in the "solo recordings" part of the page. I spent quite awhile carefully wording the text and if at all possible is there anyway that you can retrieve the text I provided (the same way you did with the other information) and edit it in a fashion that is better served for the page?

When you say "as long as you try to explain it so others can understand the change", what exactly do you mean? Also, is it possible that the modified list of vocals will get taken down again and why??

Thanks again for all your help!! --JT TRASH 01:30, 18 October 2006 (UTC)JTTRASH

Comerica Park[edit]

    • Thank you for the photo! And it's a real shame. Rubbing out whales to push a cellphone company? Yuch. I'm guessing someone in the Detroit city government got a healthy kickback from that. One other question: have they erased the distance markers in the power alleys? Sorry about all this minutia. d:) Wahkeenah 05:41, 19 October 2006 (UTC)

Anne Tyler[edit]

I just noticed a change you made to this article in June. "Bibliography," as defined by Webster, is "a list of the literary works of a given author, publisher, etc.," so its use in this article was correct. Thanks! SFTVLGUY2 15:10, 21 November 2006 (UTC)

Literary Outlaw cover[edit]

Mike, your photograph of the book is a derivative work. Claiming otherwise by bending the book, etc. comes off as Wikilawyering (see point #4). The copyright still applies to the photo you made, and in its currents usage this constitutes an infringement. If you wish to dispute this further, then please do so at WP:IFD rather than removing the maintenance tags from the Image. Thanks, -- Gyrofrog (talk) 20:00, 15 February 2007 (UTC)

Mike, I don't think your picture is different from the original work. I see a picture of the book, not an original creation. I have a copy of Literary Outlaw (I believe the same edition as yours) on hand, but I have already explained why I don't think a new image is a good idea. I don't think anyone should change the image tags until the IFD has run its course. I think any further discussion about saving or deleting the image is better suited for WP:IFD. -- Gyrofrog (talk) 20:31, 15 February 2007 (UTC)

Hello Detroit Architectural contributers:[edit]

The following category Category:Buildings with sculpture by Corrado Parducci is up for deletion. (I don't know how to make a link to it, but go to your favorite 1920s or 1930s Detroit Building and it is probably there ) You can vote for or against this action. Please consider doing this here. It is number 1:34. Thanks

Well . . . .....[edit]

Now PArducci IS featured on the U of D article too. Thanks. The latest argument about the category is that he is not mentioned in some of the articles that he is supposed to have work at. I'd forgotten about U of D until you brought it up. What made you think that he had something there? Or were you just being clairvoiant? In any case, that's another one I can check of. Of yes, thatks for including his name there. The pictures were a bit of a search because I had to scan them from negatives and that means . .... finding the negatives. But my Parducci stuff is in much better shape than say, the Battle of Cieneguilla. Can't find those. Life is supposed to be intersting. Carptrash 05:44, 2 March 2007 (UTC)

Hmmmmmmmmmmm. University of Detroit Mercy is in the Parducci article. I don't remember doing it because that was never one of my favorite works by him, but I find it difficult to believe that anyone else knows. Oh well. Anyway, I add Mercy to the Parducci article, although what I remember about U of D was Spencer Haywood coming to Ypsi and beating my Hurons with a jumper at the buzzer. Sort of dates me. Another "Oh well". So, what direction should I take additions to the Parducci article? I'm working on a map of Detroit showing his sites. That might be . . . .... different. More pictures? A dreaded LIST? Any thoughts? Carptrash 06:26, 2 March 2007 (UTC)
Yes, I remember the Iceman. In his sophomore year EMU went to some tournament (NIT?) and near the end of the game when it was obvious that the Hurons were going to loose he lost his cool {melt-down?} and popped some guy. He was drafted that year and never returned. Anyway, this is how I remember it 35 years (carptime) later. I stated a CP map of Detroit sometime, somewhere and just getting the basic map down was complicated. I'll try and dig it up and see if it makes sense to use. We could post it at the category page, which would probably drive another nail into that coffin. "NO! NO !! YOU CAN'T HAVE A MAP ON A CATEGORY PAGE !!!! " and that might be fun to watch. life is good. Carptrash 18:19, 2 March 2007 (UTC)

Oh yes, my theory (carpopinion) on clairvoiance is that it needs to be, 1) desired and then, 2) allowed to occur. It is not, in my experience, something that can be summoned. Often it shows up as coincidence and if you start keeping track of these so-called coincidences you will (might?) notice that they seem to happen more and more. And the more you pay attention to them (follow up on whatever the issue is) the more it will happen. It's a pretty standard "exercise it and it will get stronger" sort of an event. Carptrash 18:30, 2 March 2007 (UTC)

More photos[edit]

Thanks for the photo of One Kennedy Square. Let's a photo of the Michigan Soldiers' and Sailors Monument with One Kennedy Square in the background, that would be appreciated. There is one like it on the external link, and it really a great angle. One Kennedy Square is on the site of the old city hall. Also a photo of '1001 Woodward', its the tall dark gray granite building overlooking Campus Martius. Thomas Paine1776 22:17, 10 March 2007 (UTC)

Let's have some good photos of the new Detroit International Riverfront showing the Renaissance Center in the background. Hyatt Regency Dearborn needs a photo, better photos of Cadillac Place, no photo for One Towne Square in Southfield, Daimler Chrysler Headquarters, historic churches, etc. There are so many. Whatever photos you can do is appreciated. Let's do a great job on metro Detroit, it deserves it. Thanks Thomas Paine1776 00:53, 14 March 2007 (UTC)

Economy and autos[edit]

Yes, the media often gets it wrong on the auto industry and that translates into public misperceptions. Many are completely unware the metro Detroit is a prosperous region until they visit for an event. The econonomy (from prolonged war) in general is not performing. There is a housing panic in Florida the media aren't reporting with . expensive houses for sale and not many are buying. The Florida sales have dropped off significantly in the past 6 months. Hotel developers in Florida are paniced, they can't even sell hotels converted to condos. Thomas Paine1776 22:37, 12 April 2007 (UTC)

Outside metro Washington, DC the economy is waning. The South is shakey. Surely they knew about Silicon Valley economic crisis. Seems like only Lou Dobbs reported what was going on. Wonder what they'd say if the producing states quit paying the taxes and propping up the 'service sector'. The one that gets me is Pfizer, Gov Granholm should have seen what was going on, bet she won't make that mistake again. Thomas Paine1776 23:30, 12 April 2007 (UTC)


First recall that the German mark was overvalued in 1998 fixed for the Euro, before their companies went a spending spree. So they got Chrylser for a bargin price way under what they should have paid. Actually Chrylser was the more valuable company at the time and should have been the controller. Generally speaking, the insiders were blaming Chrylser CEO Bob Eaton, the book -- Taken for a Ride, how Daimler-Benz drove off with Chrysler - by Bill Vlasic. It was written at the time which its hard to find a copy now, but is on Amazon. The book claimed that Eaton knew more and was planning to retire tipping the balance on the board. Something had been in the works for a while it appears since they were sharing parts before. Lee Iococca appears to have trusted them and they weren't planning to return the favor. So one might conclude Iacocca should have known better. Daimler seemed to want select divisions of Chrysler and the profits. And more recently there seems to have been attempts to undermine the U.S auto industry abroad through trying to gain a stake in U.S companies. Hard to predict Kerkorian. Chrysler is better off on its own apart from GM or Ford. Kerkorian does have a stake in Detroit with MGM, so maybe he'll rise to the occasion. Either way, the U.S auto makers had better keep their gurad up and not fall for any tricks. The big three can succeed handily especially when they make it out of the pension and benefit crunch. The luxury car focus will only help. If Ford can get its new Lincoln design out . . . things will start looking much brighter. The Lincoln MKX Crossover is on target. The designs from GM and Ford look really good. The Ford Interceptor sedan design concept is an example of how Ford could really soar. If you haven't seen it pull it up, its really something.

In the late 1990's GM and Ford were gaining market share and that didn't sit well with Toyota and the folks that run the Japanese banks. Study the Japanese banking crisis and you'll get the idea. Also check out the book Greenspan's Fraud. In short, the recession of 2001 didn't have to happen and the U.S auto industry would have kept right on rolling. The Fed didn't have to tighten and probably shouldn't have. The U.S. policy makers goofed bigtime and let Japan bamboozle them. Thomas Paine1776 01:05, 13 April 2007 (UTC)

Allan Bloom's sexual orientation[edit]

This has become a current issue again because of the Don Imus contretemps, because one of Imus' slurs was a homophobic slur against Allan Bloom. So I went to the Allan Bloom page to read about it, and there was nothing about it, but I could tell by reading between the lines that it had been there at one time. So I tracked the edit log, and I found that you edited it out 16 February 2007, yet there's no discussion of this on the Talk page for Allan Bloom. Indeed, on the Talk Page for Allan Bloom there's a discussion about this, including contributions by you, and the consensus was to leave it in. It's clearly an important thing to include - partly because of Ravelstein, partly because of the obituary in Independent Gay Forum, partly because of the Imus contretemps.

I am going to try to work on the stones' pages. It was always my goal to get as many decent articles up as possible and then go back in and fill all the sources in. just did the one for memory motel. Stan weller 22:53, 24 April 2007 (UTC)

brown sugar[edit]

Fixed up the "Brown Sugar" article. How's it look? Stan weller 00:51, 26 April 2007 (UTC)

Windsor/Metro Detroit[edit]

The reason the Windsor section was included in the Metro Detroit article was to explain why it isn't included, because people kept adding Windsor-related information to that article as if it were part of Metro Detroit. Bearcat 20:51, 26 April 2007 (UTC)

Jim Rome...[edit]

Hey no problem. But you are right, I should have asked you or perhaps explained myself on that page. I'll try to do better in the future. Mahalo. --Ali'i 12:31, 14 May 2007 (UTC)


As you can see we have a page for the songwriting team of Jagger/Richards (something I suggested months ago on the Glimmer Twins discussion page, but no one saw). So I guess we begin linking all of the songs to this page in the infoboxes. Stan weller 21:57, 20 May 2007 (UTC)


I added a note on how Keith Richards used to be credited as "Richard" before Some Girls. Just wondering if it's appropriate. Stan weller 21:44, 28 May 2007 (UTC)

Yeah. The Some Girls article says it was used "...As a commemoration of his second lease on life following the end of his heroin addiction."

Cito Gaston's[edit]

Mr. Russell. Sorry, but I have inadvertently reverted your image of Cito Gaston's name in the Roger's Centre to its previous format. I'm a new user here; still trying to figure things out. I still haven't figured out how to change my error. I humbly apologize. (by User:76wins)


memo from turner[edit]

do you think "memo from turner" deserves an article or is it best left to the metamorphosis page? Stan weller 04:14, 1 June 2007 (UTC)

Suggestion to use Wikimedia Commons[edit]

Hi, I've noticed that you have uploaded many great photos to Wikipedia. Might I suggest that you first upload them to Wikimedia Commons instead? A few have already been copied there. Thanks and keep up the good work. heqs ·:. 17:17, 10 June 2007 (UTC)

the Russell Alger monument[edit]

picture could easily go in the Alger article. I mentioned (I think it was me) the statue near the bottom of the article and a picture would be great. I was going to add one but I no longer activly edit wikipedia - just lurk. I found a place where my opinion and original research were wanted instead of chopped out, so . . ..... Oh yes, I don't recognize the Belle Isle building. Carptrash 13:52, 17 June 2007 (UTC)

a friend of mine - another wikipedian - and I are creating a wikipedia of our own for architectural sculpture in the United States, but have not gone public yet. I'm not pulling too much of my stuff off wikipedia, just if I get p***ed off about something. But every now and then I get a messge telling me, for example that the copyright info on Image:Noguchi-Detroit1.jpg (the Dodge Fountain in Hart Plaza) is wrong and that the picture will be deleted and I now say "Fine." The article on Architectural sculpture in America - which was originally just architectural sculpture is run by some fellow who just knows and cares about NYC terra cotta, which is fine, but is not the whole story. Meanwhile I was just a hair away from adding Canada to my survey, having done Totonto and there is a good book on it and another on Vancouver, but I don't think that I can pull it off. There is nothing to show you at this point, but when we figure out a few more wrinkles I will need folks with a good eye to look the whole thing over and I probably will ask you at that time. If you go to the fabulous Ruins of Detroit amnd find AIW (Andrew In Windsor) he will likely be able to identify your Belle Isle building as he is knowledgable in the extreme, and, being Canadain, is also very nice about it. opp things are starting to happen here Carptrash 13:46, 18 June 2007 (UTC)
Thanks again. The photo is perfect. All your work is greatly appreciated. Can't wait to see more photos. Apparently, the statue in Grand Circus Park is back on display. It is an important work of Daniel Chester French and another of Detroit's treasures.Thomas Paine1776 21:10, 18 June 2007 (UTC)

stones template[edit]

what do you think about including the stones' template ( at the bottom of each song by the stones? or should we make another that lists each of the singles like the beatles' song pages ( Stan weller 00:04, 2 July 2007 (UTC)

well that's why i suggested that we could make a new template just for the singles and use the existing stones template which leads to their associated pages for the songs. of course it would require all the singles to have pages written for them and certain, more prominent B-sides. Stan weller 05:03, 16 July 2007 (UTC)

Brussels Affair worth a mention?[edit]

Do you think the songs included on Brussels Affair should be mentioned on their accompanying articles? It is a very famous bootleg. Stan weller 00:31, 23 July 2007 (UTC)

It definitely deserves a mention in the Taylor article. It's his best work with the Stones, period. You'd have to find an article on the bootleg itself. I haven't come across any, but I never really looked. Stan weller 04:11, 23 July 2007 (UTC)

Peer review for Street Fighting Man[edit]

Also would you mind contributing to the peer review for "Street Fighting Man"? Thanks in advance. Stan weller 04:26, 23 July 2007 (UTC)

On the cover versions, should we include them with the release info under the title "Release and aftermath" like in a few of the other Stones articles? Stan weller 02:48, 24 July 2007 (UTC)
Yeah Legacy is a good idea. And we can have the separate section for covers beneath it. like so:


Thanks for your edits and streamlining. I am new to this, and therefore did not know some of the tricks of the trade. I appreciate your interest in the area also.

Richards quote[edit]

I noticed you're good at finding quotes from Keith about songs. I remember reading one he made in regards to Street Fighting Man being similar or in the same vain as Jumpin' Jack Flash, and he really goes into detail about the two songs. You know that one? Stan weller 22:44, 28 July 2007 (UTC)


I started a WP for the Stones: Wikipedia:WikiProject The Rolling Stones It amazed me that they didn't have one. This should (from what I've seen of the Beatles' WP) make things a lot easier. Spread the word. Stan weller 06:09, 8 August 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for that. Not sure how to do the template thing, but good luck trying. Next up will be the gargantuan undertaking of placing it on all of the discussion pages. I'm going to give a majority of my time over the next week or so before I go back to school to the Stones' main page. As I see it the band's page is our first priority.

People Mover[edit]

Mike, you reverted a change of mine on the Detroit People Mover. I still think the headings should be there. Take a look at my comments on the talk page and see if there's a compromise we would both prefer. Thanks.--Loodog 21:57, 14 August 2007 (UTC)


Can we rate the Stones' articles or does it have to be by someone independent of the WP? Stan weller 05:03, 15 August 2007 (UTC)

The Rolling Clones[edit]

I've noticed them leaving their link on all the song pages for which they have produced covers. While it's fine if they have their own page, is it really necessary on the song pages? It seems more like an advert than something people really need to know about the song. Should we delete them from the articles and allow their page to show what songs they've recorded/covered? Stan weller 14:25, 23 August 2007 (UTC)

Stones WP talk page[edit]

stuff like that we can keep for the WP's talk page. but thanks for your work. i'm surprised by how little interest there is in writing/maintaining the stones pages, so all the help they can get is good. it's probably easier working on something static like the beatles or zeppelin as there's little to no news on them. with the stones you get the feeling that writing their history is futile as they've always just kept going. Stan weller 04:15, 27 August 2007 (UTC)


Hello. The image Image:Fordfield4.jpg and the corresponding image on Commons are not exactly the same. In fact, I think the light and contrast are much better in the version on Wikipedia. If you don't mind, could you upload that copy in Commons so that I can delete the version on the wiki? If on the other hand you prefer the one on Commons, please let me know. Thanks, Pascal.Tesson 23:36, 29 August 2007 (UTC)

Categories at commons[edit]

Hi Mike, I left a template message at your commons talk, noticing that a lot of the images you have uploaded at commons don't have a proper category. I hope you could find the time to go through your gallery and add relevant categories, makes your images easier to find and use by others. I've also just now created commons:category:Windsor Casino, might be useful... I've moved some of your images from en:wikipedia to commons, but due to the slow computer I'm working on right now I'll leave the rest to you (or other users wanting the use these images in other wikipedia projects). Happy editing, Finnrind 22:07, 30 August 2007 (UTC)

Tourism in metropolitian Detroit Afd[edit]

Mike, I suppose the best thing to do is to inform other project Michigan people to take a look. Or if you can get others to vote. Agree, some debaters are not being sensible. It seems like an agenda by some who don't like Detroit. Agree also it looks like censorship, unbelievably. I read a page somewhere about what an Administrater is not, and it said something like they are not supposed to abuse their status for content disputes. It might be helpful - whatever the procedure.

Disrespecting the admins, again[edit]

I thought this was rather rude. Lar is one of the good guys here. He tried nicely to help you (whether you recognise that or not), and offered you the hand of friendship and forgiveness and you rejected it. I did a lot of work on the article your dispute was over and helped save it from deletion, and now I too feel rather slighted by your remarks about admins. This is a team effort here, and the best editors are those who realise that, whatever their status. Have a think about it, please. --John 22:55, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

You guys remind me of 12 year olds. Why not just take the mature approach- I won't talk to you, you don't talk to me. Okay, it works in real life all the time. You really have to get outside more- hit the streets with a gal and bottle of beer and just have fun. Geez, I hope this ends it.--Mikerussell 23:40, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

All About You (song)[edit]

Do you have any quotes for this Keith song from Emotional Rescue? I've got one where he says it's about Mick, but are there any others? Some claim it's about Anita Pallenberg. Stan weller 06:56, 25 September 2007 (UTC)

Also, I'm pretty sure the date of recording is correct, but do you have a way of checking that?
Yeah, I got two different dates. One was from '78 [16] and would've placed it just before recording of "Before They Make Me Run" and the other was '79 from Time is on our Side. But Keith says in the quote that he had it for a few years so the initial recording could've just been a few rough takes. Stan weller 09:30, 26 September 2007 (UTC)

muscial evolution[edit]

Watch for photo deletion nominations.[edit]

Someone appears to be misinterpreting the copyright laws on sculptures. It looks like some of Carptrashes photos have been deleted. Someone nominated your Marshall Fredericks Spirit of Detroit sculpture for deletion over alleged copyright issues - [17]. Art Monthy states the public sculptures like this may be photographed, filmed, or drawn with the knowledge of the sculptor. "Sculptures situated in public places can easily be photographed, filmed, or drawn without the knowledge of the sculptor, and such two-dimensional reproductions might equally easily be merchandised commercially." See Art Monthly (11-1-2006) for an explaination of the issues. Thomas Paine1776 (talk) 20:29, 18 January 2008 (UTC)

Detroit photos[edit]

Glad to hear of about your career hope you will stay connected. Most needed are photos of James Scott Fountain on Belle Isle and Chauncey Hurlbut Memorial Gate[18] at East Jefferson & Cadillac Blvd (Waterworks Park), and Edsel & Eleanor Ford House[19] at 1100 Lakeshore (open 10-4 PM Tuesday - Saturday), Grosse Pointe War Memorial [20] 32 Lakeshore and pictures of Lakeshore Drive in Grosse Pointe you can snap, The newly renovated/expanded Detroit Institute of Arts. The Palmer Woods Historic District [21][22] neighborhood and one of the famous houses there is the Bishop Gallagher Residence (which has statues and insignias)[23] [24] at 1880 Wellesley and the Frank Gorman House[25], Brush Park restorations like those on Edmund[26][27], the restored Inn at 97 Winder [28] Photo of David Whitney House [29] at 4421 Woodward. Better photo of Col. Frank Hecker House [30] at 5510 Woodward, Inn on Ferry Street [31], St. Anne's Church [32], Fort Street Presbyterian Church [33] at 631 West Fort, Sweestest Heart of Mary Church [34], St. Albertus Church [35]. Thomas Paine1776 (talk) 21:40, 11 March 2008 (UTC)

Mike, Jefferson Ave in front of the RenCen turns into Lakeshore Drive in Grosse Pointe. The Grosse Pointe topic details some addresses of sites (there are so many). You pass by the Chauncey Hurlbut gate on Jefferson Ave. If you have time, the Edsel & Eleanor Ford House at 1100 Lakeshore is a fantastic tour, its an opportunity to take photos outside. It would be nice to eventually have all the historic churches, important estates, monuments, and key restorations photographed. If you can get a photo of the James Scott Fountain on Belle Isle try to get the RenCen in the background. In case you didn't know, the James Scott Mansion[36] at Park Ave & Peterboro St. just off Woodward is a real prize awaiting restoration (there are so many treasures like this one there - hard to believe someone hasn't stepped forward to restore them yet). Maybe its going to happen all at once. Thomas Paine1776 (talk) 19:39, 12 March 2008 (UTC).

The statue of General Alexander Macomb, Sr. [37] at Washington Blvd and Michigan Ave is another important Detroit monument as well as General Thaddeus Kosciuszko [38] third street at Michigan Ave. The Thinker [39] in front of the Detroit Intitute of Arts. There is a new monument to the Underground Railroad near Tri-Centiennel State Park along the Riverfront, which can be photographed with skyscrapers in the background, the Detroit Historical Society (table of contents) lists downtown scupltures [40], there are over 122 of them, and the historical society even seems to have missed some of them that Detroit1701 picked up [41]. Thomas Paine1776 (talk) 01:28, 27 March 2008 (UTC)
Your latest Detroit photos are great, like the upclose ones of Cadillac Place. Not sure if you were aware of it, but inside the Fisher building lobby is one of the most ornate interiors in Detroit, but the lighting makes it difficult to photograph the lobby.Thomas Paine1776 (talk) 20:30, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

Chicago montage[edit]

Hi, I hope that you don't mind, but I modified your Chicago montage photo. I used Photoshop to save it through a slightly cleaner format, evened out the black border lines, and changed two of the photos to comparable ones. I think that the photo of Crown fountain is more fitting than one of Buckingham fountain. Let me know if you have any objections to this. -- mcshadypl TC 06:33, 20 December 2008 (UTC)

The photo of the Greektown Casino and St. Mary's Church is really great work, it appears you're the first one to take that photo too.

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.
