Patrick&Matt[edit]

Patrick&Matt has been proposed for deletion. An editor felt the subject might not be notable enough for an article. Please review Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not and Wikipedia:Notability for the relevant concerns. An example of notability guidelines can be found at Wikipedia:Notability (websites). If you can improve the article to address these concerns, please do so.

If no one objects to the deletion within five days by removing the "prod" notice, the article may be deleted without further discussion. If you remove the prod notice, the deletion process will stop, but if an editor is still not satisfied that the article meets Wikipedia guidelines, it may be sent to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion for consensus.

Speedy deletion of Gulping[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Gulping, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page appears to have no meaningful content or history, and the text is unsalvageably incoherent. If the page you created was a test, please use the sandbox for any other experiments you would like to do. Feel free to leave a message on my talk page if you have any questions about this.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the article does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that a copy be emailed to you. Excirial (Talk,Contribs) 18:13, 5 August 2008 (UTC)

Lethal Weapon (film series)[edit]

The article is about Lethal Weapon (film series), as the title states, not about misplaced spoofs.--Kintetsubuffalo (talk) 19:02, 18 November 2010 (UTC) You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war. Users who edit disruptively or refuse to collaborate with others may be blocked if they continue. In particular the three-revert rule states that making more than three reversions on a single page within a 24-hour period is almost always grounds for an immediate block. If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the talk page to discuss controversial changes. Work towards wording and content that gains consensus among editors. If unsuccessful, then do not edit war even if you believe you are right. Post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If edit warring continues, you may be blocked from editing without further notice. --Kintetsubuffalo (talk) 19:12, 19 November 2010 (UTC)

License tagging for File:Philmont Ranger leadership.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Philmont Ranger leadership.jpg. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information; to add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia.

For help in choosing the correct tag, or for any other questions, leave a message on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 14:05, 19 November 2010 (UTC)

Lethal Weapon Film Series[edit]

Hi Owen! Please go to the Lethal Weapon (film series) Talk Page and discuss the content changes before doing them again. Work on coming to a consensus with the other editors, and work on helping implement that consensus. Any questions, feel free to ask me. Best, Robert ROBERTMFROMLI | TK/CN 22:24, 19 November 2010 (UTC)

Scouting WP[edit]

Further, I am impressed by your Scouting record and your writing. It is good, you just have to learn what is appropriate, and where. Please read WP:OWN, and try not to be so possessive of your writing. I have been here five years, was one of the founders of the Scouting WikiProject, and was going to Philmont before you were born. I made a lot of mistakes when I started here, still do. You've been here a while already. When someone else undoes or changes what you wrote, ask yourself what the Scouting thing to do is. Is it them, or is it you? You'll do well, we need you, just trust that other regular editors know what we're doing. I hope you join and work with us!--Kintetsubuffalo (talk) 12:35, 22 November 2010 (UTC)
You should not remove comments from talkpages, once they're there, they need to stay.--Kintetsubuffalo (talk) 18:14, 22 November 2010 (UTC)
Just curious: does this include user talk pages? DaAnHo (talk) 17:09, 5 December 2010 (UTC)
I invite you to research that for yourself.--Kintetsubuffalo (talk) 15:57, 13 December 2010 (UTC)

Notability[edit]

Have you read our notability guidelines? They are not about what you think is notable. They are about sources and the Philmont Ranger article does not have sources that demonstrate that the article meets the notability guidelines. --Bduke (Discussion) 21:31, 13 December 2010 (UTC)

Amelia Earhart[edit]

An edit such as this would need to be blended with the section above it, which it seems you didn't see. Gwen Gale (talk) 15:49, 18 December 2010 (UTC)

Hi Owen, re: Nikumaroro Island edit on Amelia Earhart Your edit following: "In 2010 a group of aviation enthusiasts from Delaware, part of the International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery, found bone fragments on Nikumaroro Island that may be the remains of Amelia Earhart.[1] Skeletal remains had previously been found on the island in 1940, but an original analysis predicted that the bones were from a man.[2] Other evidence of non-Pacific Islander habitation was also found.[3] In 1998, the doctor's notes were re-discovered and doctors believed the original prediction to be erroneous, instead concurring that the bones belonged to a woman of Earhart's height. Shortly after Earhart's disappearance there was evidence of habitation by an air/sea survivor noticeable on Nikumaroro Island, but there was no further investigation because the island had been crossed off the search list." However, bear in mind that follow-up new stories have put a new light on the prospects of the find being evenly remotely connected to Amelia Earhart. One AP story today relates that forensic examination is not started and that the bones may have no human origin. Turtle bones are being suggested, however the TIGHAR press releases continue unabated. The whole "woman's height", "evidence of habitation" statements are wholesale hyperbole and supposition based on interpretation of decades old data. FWiW Bzuk (talk) 16:26, 18 December 2010 (UTC).

I don't think Bzuk's comments about this are supported by the sources, there is a PoV kerfluffle on the article talk page which you might also look at. Gwen Gale (talk) 16:44, 18 December 2010 (UTC)

Scoutwiki[edit]

http://en.scoutwiki.org/Main_Page is a Scouting specific wiki. I'm 99% sure on that site, if it's Scouting notable, it's good enough to get it's own page. I think the Philmont pages over there could use a whole lot of work. Zybthranger (talk) 16:03, 26 January 2011 (UTC)

I just copy/pasted your article to http://en.scoutwiki.org/Philmont_Ranger Zybthranger (talk) 16:08, 26 January 2011 (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. For the Election committee, MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 13:53, 23 November 2015 (UTC)
