I take it you wouldn't be interested in writing an article on the Neches River, would you?


I know nothing of the river of which you speak. Actually, I did introduce Wikipedia to the Detroit River.


Heyya! Thanks for wikifying my recent entry. Fast, too!


Hi, I am a new comer here, and I found u at Queer wikipedians. I am now working mainly on Chinese verision about gay-related articals. And I think you can help me a lot. Hopefully we can be friends! :D --Gboy 04:06 9 Jul 2003 (UTC)

Main namespace cleanup[edit]

Heya, I've moved your article in the main namespace to User:N8chz/old, there's some meaningful edit history should you wish to keep it. --fvw* 03:47, 2004 Dec 13 (UTC)

And I have history merged that old page history, and fixed a link on this page. Graham87 12:09, 14 March 2009 (UTC)


We're all about promoting the abundance of information, although not necessarily about consumer transactions.  :-)

Why don't you write an article about the aforementioned grassroots activities? Sounds interesting. --LMS

I advocate abundance of information only to the extent to which the people the information pertains to are in favor of that. Surely my ethical standards in that area at least as high as those of vendors of supermarket loyalty card programs.  ;-)

Also, a lot of the information I advocate the abundance of is not about actual consumer transactions, although much of it is about making as detailed as ethically feasible maps of possible consumer transactions. I don't see such activities as a threat to privacy, at least not that of individuals. I of course invite arguments to the contrary.

I don't know whether grassroots activities, especially largely untested ones, are appropriate material for the wikipedia. However, I am also interested in viewpoints on any and all sides of that issue. --n8chz

Image Tagging[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Part.jpg. I notice it currently doesn't have an image copyright tag. Until a more informative tag is provided, it will be listed as {{no source}}. Could you add a better tag to let us know its copyright status? If you made the image yourself, an easy way to deal with this is add {{gfdl}} if you're willing to release it under the GFDL. Alternatively, you could release all rights to it by adding {{NoRightsReserved}}. This would allow anyone to do whatever they wish with your image, without exceptions. However, if it isn't your own image, you need to specify what free license it was distributed under. You can find a list of the tags here. If it was not distributed under a free license, but you claim fair use, add {{fairuse}}. If you don't know what any of this means, just let me know where you got the images by posting to my talk page. If you do this, I can tag them for you. Thanks so much,.

A "{{prod}}" template has been added to the article LSAL, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but the article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice explains why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may contest the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page. Also, please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.

N8CHZ stands for "November Eight Charlie Hotel Zulu".

N8CHZ stands for open information in consumer transactions, having introduced the monicker "pubwan" for grassroots activities to promote the abundance of information.

N8CHZ introduced Wikipedia to Pells equation and the partition function.

N8CHZ is currently looking for a J.Ō.B. in the Detroit area.

N8CHZ wishes you all well.

It is probable that all the content that I can plausibly provide to the Wikipedia, was provided during the first year and a half or so of its existence. In short, I'm tapped out. For this reason, my current role in the Wikipedia community is as a lurker, or read-only netizen.

Someday I hope to become a server side netizen (see

File source problem with File:Part.jpg[edit]


Thank you for uploading File:Part.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, please add a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of that website's terms of use of its content. However, if the copyright holder is a party unaffiliated from the website's publisher, that copyright should also be acknowledged.

If you have uploaded other files, consider verifying that you have specified sources for those files as well. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged per Wikipedia's criteria for speedy deletion, F4. If the image is copyrighted and non-free, the image will be deleted 48 hours after 05:38, 2 January 2011 (UTC) per speedy deletion criterion F7. If you have any questions or are in need of assistance please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Kelly hi! 05:38, 2 January 2011 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

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.
