Heroin[edit]

What are we supposed to see on the Mitch Hedberg talk page? --TheGrza 21:30, Apr 2, 2005 (UTC)

I was going to ask the author for some confirmation of Mitch Hedberg's heroin use, but the Chicago Sun-Times did the trick. Sorry for spreading confusion! --Omphaloscope 21:34, 2 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Tina Howe[edit]

Hi! That "Tina Howe" article is greatly lacking content. Can you add any more to it? Single-sentence nanostubs are speedy deletion candidates. Take care. - Lucky 6.9 04:06, 11 Apr 2005 (UTC)

WOW[edit]

Haha that is freakin' sweet. I've unfortunately slowed my particpation on Wikipedia, but I still love the site. You're in fact probably the first *Internet* person that I know in real life. The snow is still sticking even up here - it looks unblievable. The trip home wasn't good (3 in the backseat+being in the middle = cramps) but the tournament was really cool. How did you do?--Etaonish 15:12, 4 December 2005 (UTC)

Copyright Examination Rejected[edit]

You requested a copyright examination regarding Wto leungkwokhung image. Sadly copyright examinations is not the right place for your request. The most common reason is that the content has already been added/uploaded to Wikipedia. Such cases (violations or not) are taken care of at Wikipedia:Copyright problems.

Your request will eventually be moved to List of requests which don't belong here on the copyright examinations page. Please try to find the right place for your request as soon as possible. We hope that your request will find the right place and get answered. --Easyas12c 00:57, 18 December 2005 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with Image:Billy_Collins.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Billy_Collins.jpg. However, the image may soon be deleted unless we can determine the copyright holder and copyright status. The Wikimedia Foundation is very careful about the images included in Wikipedia because of copyright law (see Wikipedia's Copyright policy).

The New York Times[edit]

The New York Times is a self-described liberal newspaper: http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpage.html?res=9D01E7D8173DF936A15754C0A9629C8B63. That is an article from its public editor answering the question. I added the political line. 206.15.101.253 20:46, 3 March 2006 (UTC)Ed

Joan[edit]

Not sure why you added the Maxwell's Silver Hammer reference; it was already in there, but I guess it adds emphasis

ummmmmbc[edit]

i extended my winning streak against you only to see my perfect streaks against lydia/david/columbia to all fall apart =(

and we didn't break anyway....i'll be damned if i ever trust tore+baia again =D--Etaonish 15:45, 12 March 2006 (UTC)


EDIT: And oh yes - damn Christine carried me. My 3 in your round was the only non-4 rank that I got. That's right, I got 4 4's and a 3 in your round. =( Plus your round was also my only 25+ score. Bah.


Look at it this way - at least you guys took out that damned Noah. Curse him and his lies.--Etaonish 18:49, 12 March 2006 (UTC)

A short Esperanzial update[edit]

As you may have gathered, discussions have been raging for about a week on the Esperanza talk page as to the future direction of Esperanza. Some of these are still ongoing and warrant more input (such as the idea to scrap the members list altogether). However, some decisions have been made and the charter has hence been amended. See what happened. Basically, the whole leadership has had a reshuffle, so please review the new, improved charter.

As a result, we are electing 4 people this month. They will replace JoanneB and Pschemp and form a new tranche A, serving until December. Elections will begin on 2006-07-02 and last until 2006-07-09. If you wish to run for a Council position, add your name to the list before 2006-07-02. For more details, see Wikipedia:Esperanza/June 2006 elections.

Thanks and kind, Esperanzial regards, —Celestianpower háblame 16:00, 23 June 2006 (UTC)

August Esperanza Newsletter[edit]

Program Feature: To-Do List
The Esperanza To-Do List is a place where you may list any request, big or small, for assistance. If you need help with archiving your usertalk, for example, all you need to do is list it here and somebody will help you out. Likewise, if you need help with some area of editing on Wikipedia, list it here! Again, any matter, trivial or not, can be placed on this page. However, all matters listed on this page must not be of an argumentative nature. You do not need to be a member of Esperanza (or this program) to place or fulfill requests on this page. If you don't have any requests, consider coming by and fulfilling a few! This program has not been very active, but has lots of potential!
What's New?
In order to help proposed programs become specific enough to make into full-fledged programs, the In development section of the proposals page has been created. Proposals that are promising, but need to be organized in more detail are listed here. Please take a look at what is there, and help the proposals turn into programs.
To improve both the layout and text of the front page, in an attempt to clarify the image of Esperanza, the front page is going to have some redesigning take place. Please take your creative minds to Wikipedia:Esperanza/Front page redesign to brainstorm good ideas.
Many thanks to MiszaBot, courtesy of Misza13, for delivering the newsletter.
  1. In order to make sure all users who join Esperanza are welcomed, a list of volunteers who are willing to welcome new Esperanzians is at Wikipedia:Esperanza/Members#Esperanza_welcomers. Please add yourself if you are interested; we want to make sure all new Esperanza members are welcomed!
  2. The In development section of the proposals page has been created.
  3. Proposals page: Some proposals have been moved to the aforementioned "In development" section, some have been left as a proposal, and others have been archived. For those proposals that were a good idea but didn't necessarily constitute a program, General Esperanzial Actions has been created.
  4. Two small pieces of charter reform will be decided on in a straw poll at Wikipedia talk:Esperanza/Governance. One involves filling the position of any councillors who may leave, the other involves reforming the charter.
  5. Until cooperation with the Kindness Campaign is better defined, it remains as a proposed program.
  6. There is a page for discussing the front page redesign.

University Rank[edit]

JHU and Chicago got new ranks on the 18th. It's available on the internet now, I believe.

Any word from Sire Records yet? HawkerTyphoon 00:41, 26 August 2006 (UTC)

Still waiting. I wouldn't be too surprised if they were to ignore me. Omphaloscope » talk 02:06, 26 August 2006 (UTC)

Ypsi and trivia[edit]

Hmm, you're right, I misread the guideline a bit. Still, I have to think every random reference to Ypsilanti should be incorporated into the article. The yardstick that I use is: does it tell the reader something important about the subject of the article, or is it more about the subject of the trivia? So for instance, when I hear about a band with a record coming out, do I really read that as a fact about Ypsi, or a fact about the band? On that basis, I think both the Sufjan Stevens and the Blood-whatever Calligraphy bits are really non-starters as far as understanding Ypsi is concerned, whereas the compilation of songs by Ypsi bands has something to say about the music scene in Ypsi. Does that sound like a reasonable distinction? · rodii · 16:13, 26 August 2006 (UTC)

Ypsisongs is "music in Ypsilanti". Sufjan Stevens goes under "Ypsilanti in music". The inclusion of either of these adds value to the article. That's my yardstick. — Omphaloscope 17:49, 26 August 2006 (UTC)

"Pete" Ellis[edit]

Please look at my modifications to the article and let me know what you think. --Jpbrenna 06:10, 30 August 2006 (UTC)

Something's wrong with the ref tags -- there should be seven, but they start over and run to 14. I can't figure it out.--Jpbrenna 06:32, 30 August 2006 (UTC)

September Esperanza Newsletter[edit]

Program Feature: Barnstar Brigade
Here in Wikipedia there are hundreds of wikipedians whose work and efforts go unappreciated. One occasionally comes across editors who have thousands of good edits, but because they may not get around as much as others, their contributions and hard work often go unnoticed. As Esperanzians we can help to make people feel appreciated, be it by some kind words or the awarding of a Barnstar. This is where the Barnstar Brigade comes in. The object of this program is to seek out the people which deserve a Barnstar, and help them feel appreciated. With your help, we can recognize more dedicated editors!
What's New?
September elections are upon us! Anyone wishing to be a part of the Advisory Council may list themselves as a candidate from 18 September until 24 September, with the voting taking place from 25 September to 30 September. Those who wish to help with the election staff should also list themselves!
Appreciation Week, a program currently in development, now has its own subpage! Share your good ideas on how to make it awesome there!
The Esperanza front page has been redesigned! Many thanks to all who worked hard on it.
Many thanks to MiszaBot, courtesy of Misza13, for delivering the newsletter.
  1. The proposals page has been updated, with some proposals being archived.
  2. Since the program in development Appretiaion week is getting lots of good ideas, it now has its own subpage.
  3. The September 2006 Council elections will open for nominations on 18 September 2006. The voting will run from 25 September 2006 until 30 September 2006. If you wish to be a candidate or a member of the elections staff, please list yourself!
  4. The new Esperanza front page design has but put up - many thanks to all who worked on it!
  5. TangoTango has written a script for a bot that will list new members of Esperanza, which will help those who welcome new Esperanzains greatly!

November Esperanza Newsletter[edit]

Program Feature: Admin Coaching (needs coaches!)
Admin Coaching needs coaches!!! If you are an administrator, or even a generally experienced user, do consider signing up to be a coach.

Admin Coaching, now being coordinated by HighwayCello, is a program for people who want help learning some of the more subtle aspects of Wikipedia policy and culture. People are matched with experienced users who are willing to offer coaching. The program is designed for people who have figured out the basics of editing articles; they're not newcomers any more, but they might want some help in learning new roles. In this way, Esperanza would help keep hope alive for Wikipedia because we would always be grooming the next generation of admins.

What's New?
The Tutorial Drive is a new Esperanza program! In an effort to make complicated processes on Wikipedia easier for everyone, Esperanza working to create and compile a list of tutorials about processes here on Wikipedia. Consider writing one!
A discussion on how Esperanza relates to the encyclopedia has been started; please add your thoughts.
Many thanks to MiszaBot, courtesy of Misza13, for delivering the newsletter.
  • The list of proposed programs has been updated, with some proposals being archived.
  • There is now a new program: the Tutorial Drive! Consider writing a tutorial on something you are good at doing on Wikipedia.
  • The suggestion of adding a cohesive look to all the Esperanza pages is being considered; join the discussion if you are interested!
  • In order to make a useful interlanguage welcome template, those involved in translation projects will be asked what English Wikipedia policies are most important and confusing to editors coming from other language Wikipedias.
  • A discussion of Esperanza's role in Wikipedia is being held, with all thoughts of all Esperanzians wanted!
  • Shreshth91 informed everyone that he will be leaving the Esperanza council as life is rather busy; his spot will be filled by the runner up from the last election, HighwayCello.

Official Invitation to Join my WikiProject![edit]

Hey Raff,

I know you're probably not very interested in my WikiProject, but I have created a WikiProject to help improve articles on defunct airlines. It can be found at Wikipedia:WikiProject Defunct Airlines. It is dedicated to the research of defunct airlines, particularly defunct regional airlines which served locations that no longer see airline service today, such as Dutchess County Airport in Poughkeepsie. I am sure you are laughing, but this is not very well covered on Wikipedia. It shall be a defunctolution! —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Jondude11 (talkcontribs) 07:14, 7 December 2006 (UTC).

Proposed deletion of N-400 Application for Naturalization[edit]

Ambox warning orange.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article N-400 Application for Naturalization, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent 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.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because 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. Do you want to opt out of receiving this notice? Lincolnite (talk) 16:05, 29 May 2008 (UTC)

Notification: changes to "Mark my edits as minor by default" preference[edit]

Hello there. This is an automated message to tell you about the gradual phasing out of the preference entitled "Mark all edits minor by default", which you currently have (or very recently had) enabled.

On 13 March 2011, this preference was hidden from the user preferences screen as part of efforts to prevent its accidental misuse (consensus discussion). This had the effect of locking users in to their existing preference, which, in your case, was true. To complete the process, your preference will automatically be changed to false in the next few days. This does not require any intervention on your part and you will still be able to manually mark your edits as being minor in the usual way.

For established users such as yourself there is a workaround available involving custom JavaScript. With the script in place, you can continue with this functionality indefinitely (its use is governed by WP:MINOR). If you have any problems, feel free to drop me a note.

Thank you for your understanding and happy editing :) Editing on behalf of User:Jarry1250, LivingBot (talk) 18:29, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

{{Metaphysics-stub}}[edit]

Greetings! I see you have recently created one or more new stub templates or categories. As it states at Wikipedia:Stub, at the top of most stub categories, and in many other places on Wikipedia, it is recommended that new stub types be proposed prior to creation at Wikipedia:WikiProject Stub sorting/Proposals. This helps to reach consensus about whether the new stub type is already covered by existing stub types, whether it is named according to stub naming guidelines, whether it is otherwise correctly formatted, whether it reaches the standard threshold for creation of a new stub type, and whether it crosses existing stub type hierarchies. Your new stub type is currently listed at Wikipedia:WikiProject Stub sorting/Discoveries, where comments are welcome as to any rationale for this stub type. Please, in future, consider proposing new stub types first at Wikipedia:WikiProject Stub sorting/Proposals!This message is a boilerplate, left here as a courtesy, and should not be considered personal in nature.

Proposed deletion of Jacqueline Lichtenstein[edit]

Hello, Omphaloscope. I wanted to let you know that I’m proposing an article that you started, Jacqueline Lichtenstein, for deletion because it's a biography of a living person that lacks references. If you don't want Jacqueline Lichtenstein to be deleted, please add a reference to the article.

Proposed deletion of Center Day Camp[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Center Day Camp has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

No evidence of notability.

While all constructive 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 {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article 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. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 15:31, 14 April 2014 (UTC)

Nomination of Center Day Camp for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Center Day Camp is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Center Day Camp until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 16:25, 14 April 2014 (UTC)

Sufjan Stevens edit[edit]

Hi there. I made the edit because of the wording of the sentence--specifically the phrase "in support of this album." Where the sentence is, it appears that "this album" either refers to the Christmas box set compilation or it appears that a sentence is missing. It does not logically follow (for the person reading the article) that "this album" refers four sentences back to Rosie Thomas's album. If the chronology is an issue, let's just change "this album" to "These Friends of Mine," assuming we agree that is the intended meaning, yeah? Of course we have no citation here to verify it...but it doesn't make any sense the way it is right now. Cheers, Michellecornelison (talk) 05:49, 28 July 2015 (UTC)
