My apologies on the Waters edit

Original Barnstar Hires.png The Original Barnstar
Hi NorthBySouth, My apologies. I noticed you reverted my heading edit and included BLP. I'm somewhat newish to wikipedia. so I;m not completely clear with all protocol. Your edit has been put back. My apologies. I wasn't intending to slander Roger Waters, but rather embelish the nature of his views which in theory are alarmingly controversial to the Israeli population. Kind regards, Kingslove Kingslove2013 (talk) 20:37, 3 February 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for February 6

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited United States National Forest, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Watershed (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Deleted files

Hey, I deleted the files. I'm going to send you an e-mail, so check your email soon. Tokyogirl79 (。◕‿◕。) 09:09, 14 February 2014 (UTC)

  • I'm not sure whether or not to take this to AfD since there is an assertion of notability or to delete it as a BLP violation, which it surely is. There's a LOT of unsourced libelous information in there. I don't think that this is a hoax persona, but I do think that the current state of the article merits deletion in one way or another. Tokyogirl79 (。◕‿◕。) 09:33, 14 February 2014 (UTC)
  • I've removed the hoax tag since I don't think that this is a hoax since I can find some evidence to show he exists, but I do think that this is a case of an attack page or some pretty libelous information. Tokyogirl79 (。◕‿◕。) 09:35, 14 February 2014 (UTC)
  • I'm also going to recuse myself from further deletion of the articles or files since I'm now sort of officially involved in this. (By this I mean that I'll do the deleting myself.) Tokyogirl79 (。◕‿◕。) 09:36, 14 February 2014 (UTC)
  • I was going to tell you about the SPI, but I see you've foudn it yourself. Tokyogirl79 (。◕‿◕。) 09:37, 14 February 2014 (UTC)
  • Also, I'm debating whether or not to bring this up at ANI- there's potential here for a bigger issue. I think that so far we have it controlled for the most part, so maybe if this continues? Tokyogirl79 (。◕‿◕。) 09:39, 14 February 2014 (UTC)

United States Forest Service

Hi there. I noticed you removed this photo from the "United States Forest Service" article because it shows an NYS DEC ranger. The description on the photo says "U.S. FOREST SERVICE RANGER IN PATROL BOAT AT STILLWATER ON THE HUDSON RIVER". I tried looking at the arm patch, but that didn't help. How do you know this isn't a U.S. Forest Ranger? Thanks. Magnolia677 (talk) 15:14, 15 February 2014 (UTC)

The patch and uniform are clearly not USDA Forest Service. See this article about the history of the USFS uniform. There has never been a circular white patch worn on the right shoulder. The uniform of the era had a dome-shaped yellow patch with unit rocker on the left shoulder only. There is also visible collar lettering, which was not a feature of the 1962-1978 FS uniform.
Moreover, USDA Forest Service personnel don't patrol non-Forest Service lands - and there is no National Forest System land on the Hudson River. The caption identifies it as a state forest - and that would not be a place where USFS rangers would patrol. They don't have authority over non-federal lands.
My best guess is that it's an NYS DEC or NYS Forestry ranger/warden. Whoever originally labeled it got it wrong, and nobody ever fact-checks that kind of thing once it goes in an archive, of course. I can't find any good pictures of known old NYS DEC uniforms to confirm it. NorthBySouthBaranof (talk) 20:21, 15 February 2014 (UTC)

Yeah, I'm autotroll for daring to disagree with you?

"Anyone who loves language welcomes useful neologisms. But "troll" is increasingly used to mean only "someone who disagrees with me"."

"I would use "troll" to mean someone who seeks not to enlighten, persuade or amuse, but to "get a rise out of" or pointlessly PROVOKE"

If you want a video to get views you can put it as a direct link, BUT for WP not to be a click/view whoring you MUST STATE RHAR THE LINK GIVES A VIEW COUNT. TvsWiVG article is a prime example where you need to put it in a separate column. As per WP is not supposed to be a view count advertisement. Nosepea68 (talk) 01:45, 22 February 2014 (UTC)

List of medical ethics cases section heading

I saw you retitled a section in the List of medical ethics cases (which includes Jahi McMath). I agree the previous section title was problematic, but there are several cases in that section that are not at all related to mechanical ventilation or life support, so they should probably be moved to another section. (McMath was originally listed in the euthanasia section, which was clearly incorrect.) Funcrunch (talk) 17:38, 28 February 2014 (UTC)
