Explanation[edit]

You wrote: The Morehouse College , List of Morehouse College Alumni and the Black Ivy League page(s)/Article(s) have recently been edited by Racepacket in a manner which might be generated by personal views, personal/opinions or agendas than actually stating facts which are relevant to the purpose of these articles.

The editor deleted a large percentage of the articles' text (in some cases w/o justification or comment). The editor deleted names from the Notable Alumni list which if compared to similar lists would otherwise be included. Given that similar deletions/edits have not been made to similar articles, one must explain the motivation behind the edits and state one's credentials and/or authority to so dictate the text, content and tone of these article. This situation needs to be resolved.MuJami (talk) 17:25, 18 January 2010 (UTC)MuJami — MuJami (talk • contribs) has made few or no other edits outside this topic.

In response, I would note that, if someone is the subject of a Wikipedia article, I assume that they are notable. If someone does not have a Wikipedia article, I have reviewed their notabiility based on the materials that User:John E. Rhea supplied, and deleted the non-notable ones. For example, merely being a partner in a lawfirm and being listed on the lawfirm's web site does not establish notability. I did not delete a "large percentage of an article." That was done by User:John E. Rhea.

In November, we went through an extensive discussion on whether or not to delete the Black Ivy League page which had a number of serious problems at the time. We decided to keep it, and I rewrote it to address the concerns raised and the references found during the debate. Recent edits have been inconsistent with that discussion for the reasons outlined on the talk page.

I did make one edit to Morehouse College where I found that a Forbes Magazine article had been taken out of context. That change was explained in the edit summary. I hope this answers your questions. Welcome to Wikipedia! Racepacket (talk) 20:59, 18 January 2010 (UTC)

User Ukexpat[edit]

User Ukexpat has responded to both of us and encourages us to discuss this on Talk:Black Ivy League. Thanks, Racepacket (talk) 23:09, 18 January 2010 (UTC)

Unblocked[edit]

I have now softblocked the User:John E. Rhea account and have unblocked this account for you, so you should be able to use this account, now. If you have any other questions, please let me know. –MuZemike 01:29, 4 February 2010 (UTC)

Display problems[edit]

Thanks for the message. I am by no means a technical guru but I would suggest that you log out and then log in again and bypass your cache and or perform a server purge. If it has been a while since you last logged in, the default appearance of Wikipedia has changed. You can change it back by going to the appearance tab of your preferences and selecting the Monobook skin; then save and bypass once more. Hope this helps. – ukexpat (talk) 14:59, 10 August 2010 (UTC)

Glad it worked. You can usually get technical help at the technical section of the Village Pump. – ukexpat (talk) 04:13, 11 August 2010 (UTC)

Possibly unfree File:Mordecai Wyatt Johnson.jpg[edit]

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. 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.

Disputed non-free use rationale for File:Maynard Jackson NGE.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Maynard Jackson NGE.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this file on Wikipedia may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content. This can be corrected by going to the file description page and adding or clarifying the reason why the file qualifies under this policy. Adding and completing one of the templates available from Wikipedia:Non-free use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your file is in compliance with Wikipedia policy. Please be aware that a non-free use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for files used under the non-free content policy require both a copyright tag and a non-free use rationale.

If it is determined that the file does not qualify under the non-free content policy, it might be deleted by an administrator within a few days in accordance with our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions, please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you. ViperSnake151  Talk  18:53, 16 April 2016 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of J. Veronica Biggins[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article J. Veronica Biggins has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

does not meet GNG:BIO, minimal third-party RS coverage

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the page to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.
