## Organized Labour

Hi Musaabdulrashid. I saw your name on the project page, so I thought I would stop by and say welcome. It's always nice to see another face around. Cheers. --Bookandcoffee 17:06, 13 July 2006 (UTC)

## City of Rockford Pipe Band

Thanks for your edit. Well done. --Srebob 00:18, 19 July 2006 (UTC)srebob

## Union Infobox

Sure, I'd be glad to help. When I started the union infobox I couldn't find much documentation either. There is some good advice, but not much technical info. So all I did was steal the template from Wikipedia:WikiProject Business and Economics, and modify it to our needs. :) Your note reminded me that I need to update the 'box though, because it still uses the outdated "hiddenStructure" syntax (which is frowned on - I think it doesn't translate for screen-reading programs). I'm going to work on that, and I can give you a start on your pipe box at the same time if you like. An alternate plan is just to wade in - go to Template:Infobox Company and copy what is there to your sandbox and then start experimenting (if you don't have a "sandbox" you can start one with this link User:Musaabdulrashid/sandbox, or use any name you want after the slash). If you do that let me know and I'll try and help there as well. (Keep in mind that I'm just clunking along here myself :) Cheers. --Bookandcoffee 17:46, 20 July 2006 (UTC)

Well, here's a start for you. I've got to dash or I'll be late for work, but have a look at it and see what you like and what you want to change. It will have to be moved out of my sandbox before you use it on articles, of course! The code is at User:Bookandcoffee/Sandbox. --Bookandcoffee 23:23, 20 July 2006 (UTC)

Looks like you're on your way. I commented out my example - good luck with the project. --Bookandcoffee 15:07, 21 July 2006 (UTC)

## Pipe band articles

I just wanted to say that you did a really great job creating these pipe band articles. They are well-written with a standard page format and cover all the right bases. I honestly don't usually give out kudos, but good work! —Centrxtalk • 08:29, 26 July 2006 (UTC)

## youth ministry

I'd love to. Would you prefer the article to be moved to Youth ministry (Evangelical), or Youth ministry (Christian)? HellaNorCal 06:10, 1 August 2006 (UTC)

## Joseph's Tomb

I don't think I'll be able to do that one, but just remember - if a statement is unsourced, you are entirely within your rights to demand a source, and, if none is provided, delete the statement. - Mustafaa 23:01, 5 August 2006 (UTC)

## My RfA

Hey Musa, just a quick note to let you know I withdrew my RfA at 13/11/10. Thanks for your opinin (and, in all honesty, my writing skills aren't really that bad :D) --james(talk) 11:33, 12 August 2006 (UTC)

## Bangladesh Astronomical Association, Chimney Rock Park

I noticed that you tagged the articles at Bangladesh Astronomical Association and Chimney Rock Park for speedy deletion. In both cases, I was able to edit the articles to improve them. Sometimes the best way of dealing with a weak article is to add a comment asking for it to be improved, or to improve it yourself. Regards, TruthbringerToronto (Talk | contribs) 06:51, 14 August 2006 (UTC)

Yes, Bangladesh Astronomical Association was probably a mistake, but Chimney Rock Park might be a good candidate for AfD if there is nothing else notable about it.--Musaabdulrashid 06:56, 14 August 2006 (UTC)

## Deville's RfA

 100px Hello, MusaAbdulRashid, and thank you for the support on my recent RfA. The final tally was 72/1/0, and I have now been entrusted with the mop. I'll be tentative with the new buttons for a while, and certainly welcome any and all feedback on how I might be able to use them to help the project. All the best, and thanks again! — Deville (Talk) 00:48, 25 August 2006 (UTC)

## GIen's RfA: Thank you!

 Musaabdulrashid for your Support! I I feel truly humbled & honored by your support in my RfA, which closed at 90 / 5 / 0. Thank you! If you need me for anything, just say the word. For now however, just like Mr Potter here: My mop & I shall thwart all evil :) IThank you once again my friend. GIen

PS: YES YOU'RE RIGHT HARRY POTTER USES A BROOM! (BUT GOOD MOPS ARE HARD TO FIND!!)

## WP:RfA/Consumed Crustacean

Thanks for the support vote. It helped; the RfA was a success. -- Consumed Crustacean | Talk | 04:14, 28 August 2006 (UTC)

## Info on Islamophobic group

Hello,

What follows are the thoughts, expressed in their own words, and in the 'protest signs', of the obscure, very small, but very vocal 'activist group' known as "Protest Warrior".

"What's becoming clear is how the religion of Islam is addicted to war and mayhem. Not a radical minority, not a rogue sect, but its very essence is about submission and sacrifice and proving your worth by worshipping death in this life to gain a paradise of orgies and drunkenness. Their entire history is of warfare, and any accomplishments of their so-called Golden Age has been proven to be merely parasitic off the cultures they've conquered and reduced to dhimmi servitude. That every country under sharia is corrupt, belligerent, desolate and barbaric obviously gives them no pause, except to constantly drive them into further psychotic rage as they refuse to ever accept any responsibility for their conditions. They are akin to the powers in Orwell's 1984; there must always be an enemy. It's no surprise that women are treated like property in these countries as that's the only way Muslim men can feed their egos, to dominate others rather than ever actually produce something."

Kfir Alfia and Alan Lipton, founders of "Protest Warrior"

Their 'protest signs'...

Signs

I thought you might be interested in this group's sentiments. They are currently very actively editing their own article on Wiki and there is a lot of 'group think'. Perhaps you might want to become involved in the editing and discussion process on that page. If you do, please don't vandalize, and try to remain civil. Should you not want to involve youself, please forgive my intrusion.

NBGPWS 09:09, 28 August 2006 (UTC)

Thank you, but I dont really think POV articles are that much of a threat. We should really just try to trim down the extensive amount of quotes in the article and increase the criticism. It seems to be notible anyway. thanks. Musaabdulrashid 16:31, 28 August 2006 (UTC)

## Long-Overdue RfA Thanks from Alphachimp

 Thanks for your support in my not-so-recent RfA, which was successful with a an overwhelmingly flattering and deeply humbling total of 138/2/2 (putting me #10 on the RfA WP:100). I guess infinite monkey theorem has been officially proven. Chimps really can get somewhere on Wikipedia. With new buttons come great responsibility, and I'll try my best to live up to your expectations. If you need assistance with something, don't hesitate to swing by my talk page or email me (trust me, I do respond :)). The same goes for any complaints or comments in regard to my administrative actions. Remember, I'm here for you. (Thanks go to Blnguyen for the incredible photo to the right.) alphaChimp laudare 01:38, 4 September 2006 (UTC)

## re Voting

Hello, Musaabdulrashid, I replied you on my meta talk. --Aphaia 11:13, 5 September 2006 (UTC)

## Yenta Claus

Article was edited numerous times and all objections were addressed. Web sources were added to the article and linked. Not a lot of info on the web but there are sites which are unrelated to each other and in diverse areas referencing the Yenta Claus character that appear to confirm it. There is the emergence of Jewish Holiday Mythical Characters and one of them is Yenta Claus. The new info includes a play written by a Pace University Professor where Yenta Claus is Santa's wife! [1] You all are sure making me work hard!

--Bhires 16:53, 7 September 2006 (UTC)

Thank you for your enthusiasm on this topic, but individual talk pages are not really the appropriate place to discuss AfDs that are in progress. If you just write this on the AfD entry, I'm sure everyone who is interested will see it. Musaabdulrashid 05:47, 8 September 2006 (UTC)

## Other pipe bands

Hi there; I left a message at the discussion board of Pipe band which I think is relevant. Could you give your opinion there? Thanks! Tonyjeff 01:58, 21 September 2006 (UTC)

## RE: Anti-Semitism in the 21st Century (please reply on my talk)

Hi there. By my comment I meant that the article was going to be kept - AfD isn't about what happens afterwards, only to decide whether it will be deleted or not. Since the result was redirect, the best thing to do would be to blank the page and replace with a redirect, and undo your copy/paste movement. Hope this makes sense. —Xyrael / 11:35, 24 September 2006 (UTC)

Great, glad that got sorted. —Xyrael / 15:54, 28 September 2006 (UTC)

## Utility Workers Union of America

Hi Mic. I updated the image on this article that you started. It's b/w, but much clearer. I hope that's OK with you. Cheers.--Bookandcoffee 05:25, 5 October 2006 (UTC)

Thats much better, thanks M i c 05:32, 5 October 2006 (UTC)

## Quick comment on Template:Anti-Semitism revert war

SlimVirgin and Jayjg revert my edits on a set of articles whether or not my article edits are legitimate. I have complained about it before here [2]. I collaborated recently on the creation of the Template:Israel-Palestinian Conflict, which went very well. During that collaboration I discovered the tnavbar macro and applied it to 4 templates that were missing it at the same time. One of those tepmlates was Template:Anti-Semitism. Only that addition was reverted repeatedly for what I believe were unique and invalid arguments -- it just further proves to me that I am targeted to be treated unfairly by these two. --Bhouston 23:22, 5 October 2006 (UTC)

I wish you luck then, as consistency is a plus on navbars dealing with similar subjects, even if they are controversial. I am simply amazed at your endurance in this kind of situation. M i c 00:06, 6 October 2006 (UTC)

Mic, FYI: I made a few edits on the City of Rockford Pipe Band article to update the band's 2006 Champion Supreme title and grade change. I didn't remove your prod as I have admitted familial affliation with the band. That's your or someone else's call. (the "Pipe Band World" is extremely small in the scheme of things and I suspect that future, and possibly present, articles may contain a smattering of "Conflict of Interest" issues. But if the article is well written, verifiable, etc...???) I would, however, suggest that "Notabilty" may be resolved by virture of the template you created and edited on the article - "Notable Honours" and the accomplishments of a very young band. Srebob 12:14, 5 November 2006 (UTC)srebob

I'm sorry, I havn't been edited lately, feel free to remove any tags that might remain on the article though of course, its been a while since that discussion ended. M i c 05:30, 6 November 2006 (UTC)
Tag removed - Thanks Srebob 02:46, 19 November 2006 (UTC)srebob

## Fair use rationale for Image:Fwcui.JPG

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Fwcui.JPG. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'image' 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 "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 11:06, 4 June 2007 (UTC)

## Disputed fair use rationale for Image:ModSIU.gif

Thanks for uploading Image:ModSIU.gif. However, there is a concern that the rationale you have provided for using this image under "fair use" may be invalid. Please read the instructions at Wikipedia:Non-free content carefully, then go to the image description page and clarify why you think the image qualifies for fair use. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If it is determined that the image does not qualify under fair use, it will be deleted within a couple of days according to our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot (talk) 21:24, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

## File permission problem with File:05 Bel 011.jpg

Thanks for uploading File:05 Bel 011.jpg. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file agreed to license it under the given license.

You can find a sample permission letter here. If you take this step, add {{OTRS pending}} to the file description page to prevent premature deletion.
