Personal Attacks and reporting to an administrator[edit]

I am not even going to begin to get into a pissing contest with you about me or my Sifu. You are personally calling me a liar, him a liar, and the thousands of students who have trained under him, and who he was trained by also as liars. Let me give you an overview of my Sifu. Trained by Grandmaster Fu Xi-Wen when he was younger, then when Sijo started teaching Shen Lung Gung Fu, my Sifu had moved, and then took up as a student under Grandmaster Wing Lam. Then when he packed up and moved to the Seattle area, took up as a student under Taky Kimura. Then he came to my home town and even learned San Soo from one of Jimmy Woo's students students, Sifu James Matthews, who is younger than my Sifu (they did a trading of knowledge sort of thing). And my Sifu has all authentification to prove it, so how dare you attack me. Oh, and Sanshou, which is what I know you are refering to, is a sport now...it didn't always used to be, remember it is known as free fighting, people have been doing it for thousands of years, the Chinese just called it Sanshou or Sanda, and I know it was established as a method in 1920 and also used as an official fighting method for the People's Liberation Army of China, that doesn't mean it can not be used in other styles. Think outside the box. And another thing, sashes, which are used for one of two things, to hold a uniform together, and to show the rest of the students in a class that a student is of that knowledge level (unless you believe in "some" Kempo teachings stating that as a white belt got dirty it showed that the student fought and earned his color). So who gave you the right to tell instructors of the martial arts who issue students sashes for achievement in their schools. And by the way, even though all these things that I know are in my school and I learned by formal teaching, I went to a bookstore (you may have heard of those) and bought books like "The Shaolin Grandmasters Text" and multiple other books my Sifu said I should buy to learn as much as I could because "knowledge is power." Once again, thank you for our time talking about martial arts, it has been fun. I am reporting you to an administrator for not letting me inform the public, personally bashing my character, and verifying my sources when, here is a secret, they are already on the website under External Links. Thank You and have a nice day. Deaths Omen (talk) 09:51, 29 May 2008 (UTC)Deaths Omen

Northern Shaolin[edit]

I am not sure why you keep deleting knowledgeable sources off the Northern Shaolin Article. I am a current practioner, been practicing Northern Shaolin for 8 years now, and hold a red sash in Bak Sil Lum and numerous red sashes in connected styles found within the Bak Sil Lum system. You may practice Chinese Martial Arts, and I commend you on that, but do not think you are the only authority. If you want to "verify" my sources, go to Barnes and Noble or a Borders bookstore, I will revise my own statements on the page, with putting links to the other catagories, and no information about them because it can be found on the other pages. Thank You, have a nice day, and I hope you understand that I am just trying to expand on the knowledge of others who would like to know a little more about Bak Sil Lum. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Deaths Omen (talkcontribs) 6:07, 28 May 2008 (UTC)

Pure Pwnage edits[edit]

Your topic on the Pure Pwnage online community was decent as it was, except for the personal comment you made on it. On Wikipedia, edits should be made as though they are final. Notes to forum members or anyone else should be made outside the article itself. I also changed the title a bit. Other than that, thanks for making the Pure Pwnage article even better.

What?[edit]

You put a complaint on my talk page requesting me to "stop spamming trivia in Chinese Martial Arts articles". I do not go on Chinese Martial Arts articles, never mind edit them. Malpass93 23:01, 31 October 2007 (UTC)

Sorry, I'd forgotten about that! Malpass93 09:32, 4 November 2007 (UTC)

Kish and Sumer articles[edit]

Hi, thanks for removing that inappropriate and unsourced stuff from Sumer. I'm concerned that the article may still have more bunk, but I'm tot knowledgeable enough to say. Partly it's the tone, it reminds me of the tone in an old version of the Kish article that was pretty wild. -Rich Peterson130.86.14.55 (talk) 22:48, 14 February 2008 (UTC)

By the way, here's a couple lines from the current Kish article that I'm worried about. {Kish was the holy city of Ninhursag, the powerful goddess who brought kingship to the land.[citation needed] The city's patron deity was Zababa in Akkadian times.} Reminds me of the storytelling style of the earlier version.Rich (talk) 06:41, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

History of Sumer[edit]

Hi, I am trying to get third opinions on the latest disputes with Sumerophile, this time at History of Sumer, so that we can achieve a consensus, as opposed to unilateral views of one editor or another. Til Eulenspiegel (talk) 20:05, 25 February 2008 (UTC)

Bodhidharma[edit]

I have left you a reply answering your question about his connection to Chinese martial arts. --Ghostexorcist (talk) 19:06, 24 March 2008 (UTC)

I have left another reply and a link to where you can find the book. --Ghostexorcist (talk) 21:42, 24 March 2008 (UTC)
If you are interested, I recently posted a few of the (many) interesting points of the book on this website. I still think the modern Shaolin Monastery is nothing but a glorified Disneyland, but this book has really renewed by interest in the subject. --Ghostexorcist (talk) 23:17, 29 March 2008 (UTC)

April 2008[edit]

Information.svg Hello. Please don't forget to provide an edit summary, which wasn't included with your recent edit to Zui Quan. Thank you. Gimme danger (talk) 22:09, 1 April 2008 (UTC)

Warning.svg Please do not keep deleting content without explanation. Why do you keep removing Zui Quan from the list of martial arts? --David from Downunder (talk) 09:23, 15 April 2008 (UTC)

re: Zui Quan article[edit]

I moved the article to Zui Quan in popular culture, because that's what the article is - a list of the martial art shoing up in popular culture like films, television and so on. This is the standard for many articles that list popular culture appearance of a topic - see for example Statue of Liberty in popular culture or MIT in popular culture.

Hi NJMauthor - I sent you e-mail re. Religion/Mythology ... you might not have received it though. If you didn't, I can paste it here. Regards Enki H. (talk) 20:55, 24 May 2009 (UTC)

The article Kwong Wing Lam has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Uncited, with flagged attack site externals which I have removed.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

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

February 2010[edit]

Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia. Everyone is welcome to contribute to the encyclopedia, but when you add or change content (particularly if you change facts and figures), as you have to the article Annunaki, please cite a reliable source for the content of your edit. This helps maintain our policy of verifiability. Take a look at Wikipedia:Citing sources for information about how to cite sources and the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Thank you. -RadicalOneContact MeChase My Tail 18:38, 20 February 2010 (UTC)

Welcome to wikipedia, yourself! As a new user, if you have any questions, feel free to ask me. I can take you under my wing. NJMauthor (talk) 19:03, 20 February 2010 (UTC)

Um, you removed the entire lead.[1] That's what RadicalOne was talking about. Why did you do that? I've just done some more work on it. Dougweller (talk) 19:31, 20 February 2010 (UTC)
What's to refute? I also put Anunna back as a redirect. I don't see a reason for a separate article, if you do please use the Anunnaki talk page to discuss it. Thanks. Dougweller (talk) 19:45, 20 February 2010 (UTC)

moving articles[edit]

Please do not move articles by copy-paste. If you think that for some reason Assyro-Babylonian religion should be moved to Assyrian religion, make a suggestion at Talk:Assyro-Babylonian religion, explaining your rationale. If you manage to establish a consensus for the move, the article would then be moved by mediawiki's built-in "move" function, not by copy-paste. See also WP:MOVE. --dab (𒁳) 08:57, 23 March 2010 (UTC)

Nazareth[edit]

On the topic of Nazareth, I should also add my suspicion that user:renejs is Rene Salm, a former piano teacher I hear published a book through American Atheist Press called The Myth of Nazareth. --Ari (talk) 07:46, 8 April 2010 (UTC)

When I began reading the talk discussion a few days ago I noticed the same thing. NJMauthor (talk) 07:59, 8 April 2010 (UTC)

Watching him refer to himself in the third person as prominent proponent of the Christ myth theory has made my week. --Ari (talk) 04:45, 9 April 2010 (UTC)

CMT cat poll[edit]

When you say you "advocate" the cat, does that mean the same thing as "support"? Eugene (talk) 05:48, 12 April 2010 (UTC)

Hey NJMauthor, when you get a chance, can you go here and add in your opinion? Thanks. Bill the Cat 7 (talk) 23:00, 22 June 2010 (UTC)

Dr.P.[edit]

I am not sure if this is the location to answer, or if this is what you wanted, as your comment was too vague. Marduk is the father of Shu and Tefnut These in turn fathered Geb and Nut Then followed the 4 offspring Seth, Osiris, Isis, and Nephtys Horus (NOT Horace!) followed

So, the connection is that marduk, son of enki, is the grandfather of those 4. 165.201.140.155 (talk) 20:13, 5 August 2010 (UTC)Dr.P

I have no idea what you are talking about, sir. Marduk and Enki are part of Mesopotamian mythology. They have no relation to Egyptian deities. And the Horus/Horace confusion is one I have not made; what exactly do you think I've changed? NJMauthor (talk) 08:06, 6 August 2010 (UTC)

Anahit[edit]

Hi, I have seen that you participate in Religion project. So, I would ask you to participate in the discussion on the discussion page of Anahit article. I had written some questions to discuss there. I will be thankful for your opinion published there. Thank you in advance, --Zara-arush (talk) 17:33, 19 October 2010 (UTC)

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.

Contests[edit]

User:Dr. Blofeld has created Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/Contests. The idea is to run a series of contests/editathons focusing on each region of Africa. He has spoken to Wikimedia about it and $1000-1500 is possible for prize money. As someone who has previously expressed interest in African topics, would you be interested in contributing to one or assisting draw up core article/missing article lists? He says he's thinking of North Africa for an inaugural one in October. If interested please sign up in the participants section of the Contest page, thanks.♦ --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 01:34, 21 July 2016 (UTC)

Asian 10,000 Challenge invite[edit]

Hi. The Wikipedia:WikiProject Asia/The 10,000 Challenge has recently started, based on the UK/Ireland Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge and Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The 10,000 Challenge. The idea is not to record every minor edit, but to create a momentum to motivate editors to produce good content improvements and creations and inspire people to work on more countries than they might otherwise work on. There's also the possibility of establishing smaller country or regional challenges for places like South East Asia, Japan/China or India etc, much like Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic). For this to really work we need diversity and exciting content and editors from a broad range of countries regularly contributing. At some stage we hope to run some contests to benefit Asian content, a destubathon perhaps, aimed at reducing the stub count would be a good place to start, based on the current Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The Africa Destubathon which has produced near 200 articles in just three days. If you would like to see this happening for Asia, and see potential in this attracting more interest and editors for the country/countries you work on please sign up and being contributing to the challenge! This is a way we can target every country of Asia, and steadily vastly improve the encyclopedia. We need numbers to make this work so consider signing up as a participant! Thank you. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 11:19, 20 October 2016 (UTC)
