Nazarenes and human sexuality[edit]

Yo, I wanted to give you a heads-up that I added to the discussion at Talk:Church of the Nazarene#Human sexuality re-add in light of our current content dispute. In summation, I'm basically looking for Wikipedia guidelines to support your argument. Without researching it myself, I'm inclined to think that it's perfectly fine per WP:V and that the burden would be on the person with the beef (you) to see that it's more well-rounded. But I'm also concerned that you mentioned a using a "summary" of the matter in your edit summary, which you didn't provide (and, of course, that might be construed as a misleading edit summary given the "side" you've taken on the matter!). Anyhow, I just wanted to give you a recap and let you know that my contributions to the discussion are there if you'd like to address any of them. Talk to you later, Moonraker! P.S. Glad you worked out that WikiProject Education deal without me -- I was just as confused as you were! --King of the Arverni (talk) 01:03, 13 July 2009 (UTC)


Dude, no problem at all. You left me everything I needed, and I had a BUNCH of time on my hands. Had a good time doing it, and let me know if you need any further help. (talk) 05:22, 20 January 2010 (UTC)

2010 NAIA DII Men's BB Championship[edit]

I put a reply to your comments, on my homepage. Thanks for your efforts in the basketball sector of Wikipedia.

Now, I have a question for you: the 2010 NAIA D2 championship makes reference to the Division I history in the infobox at the top of the page. The template I used was apparently specifically designed for Division I, and the infobox information is hard-coded into the infobox template. Are you confident enough to take a look at the template and make it generic enough to accomodate both DI and DII? (I am not yet that confident.) Alternately, if needed, I suppose the template can be copied and then modified for the DII history. This, I think, is the only problem with the page (other than the obvious need to fill in the few items of information that are missing at this time). Jlhcpa (talk) 18:14, 20 March 2010 (UTC)

I have copied the infobox template, formerly used only for Division I, to a new templated called Template:Infobox NAIA D-II Basketball Tournament. I see that the template will work for both genders, with men being the default and women being the usage when "gender=Women's"". So I think this template is now adequate for all D-II usage. Let me know in the future, or feel free to fix the template yourself if you see some problems. Jlhcpa (talk) 23:46, 24 March 2010 (UTC)

Standardization - why not use official terminology?[edit]

I see where you have moved four templates, articles, etc. that I set up relating to NAIA Division II mens basketball championships. I understand the desire to uniformly refer to all similar-content items. However, I disagree with the move from the names I assigned. Take a look at the NAIA website that presents this information to the web world. I believe you will find that I referred to this tournament in the manner that is being used by the NAIA itself. It seem to me that, if moving of Wiki content is needed, it should be all other references. You should adopt the naming conventions used by me rather than moving my CONFORMING content to agree with a bunch of other NONCONFIRMING naming schemes. What do you think? I'm confused. Jlhcpa (talk) 19:18, 24 March 2010 (UTC)

Take a look at the following couple of websites:
On each of these pages, the NAIA itself consistently uses the term NAIA Division II Men's Basketball National Championship.
This is where I got their wording, presumed to be the preferred wording, for the tournament that is held each year. So this is the format I would use for the generic reference to the tournament history as a whole. For each individual year, I would simply place the year as the first item in the title, as in "2010" ....... This same format could work for both genders, simply by replacing "men's" with "women's". Similarly, I believe this would be the preferred reference to D-I, simply by replacing "Division II" with "Division I" in all cases.
My whole argument is basically a debate over semantics. I agree that whatever wording used should ultimately be consistent and used for all articles, templates, etc. I realize you already have a considerable effort at designing these items with your wording, so this discussion may be moot. I would encourage usage of the NAIA-preferred lingo, but I understand if you do not see the benefit (or integrity) of using the NAIA wording.
This is probably my last comment on this topic. I have my preferences (a desire to match the official lingo as much as possible), but it is not that important of a topic to continue to pursue it if you do not see the advantages of doing so. Whatever final formatting is used, it appears we now have all cases covered - D-I, D-II, men, women. So I will use whatever is in place for any future work I may do.

1944 NAIA Division I Men's Basketball Tournament[edit]

I fixed your tagging and listing of this AFD; as it was the second AFD for that title, there was a different tag to use {{subst:afdx|2nd}} to create a different AFD page for it from the first listing. All you have to do now is present your deletion nom here. postdlf (talk) 01:23, 27 March 2011 (UTC)

As nothing was happening, I just reverted the AFD tags and deleted the page. Let me know if you need help recreating it, but I don't see a point in it being up until someone is willing to participate. postdlf (talk) 22:59, 27 March 2011 (UTC)

Just dropping you a note that none of the NAIA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament articles are anywhere near B Class quality, as you had previously tagged them. I've changed them to a more accurate Start Class assessment. Jrcla2 (talk) 03:19, 8 November 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Nazarene Ally[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Nazarene Ally requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about an organization or company, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, you can place a request here. noq (talk) 13:11, 14 August 2013 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (File:Nazarene Ally Logo.png)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:Nazarene Ally Logo.png. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Werieth (talk) 21:21, 12 September 2013 (UTC)
