Hey. Yeah, I noticed his recent edit but you beat me to the punch. Now he decided to vandalize your user page. I reported him on WP:AIV and he is blocked for 31 hours now. Thanks, Prolog 08:34, 19 December 2006 (UTC)

Question

{{Extra album cover | Upper caption = Alternate cover | Background = khaki | Cover = SoundOfTheUndergroundCD2Cover.jpg | Lower caption = UK CD 2 cover }}

So can you tell me why did u delete that in Sound of the Underground (song), basically that's not very cool to me since I added it and I even searched for that picture just put it in the article and ur just gonna delete it, you're vandalizing!--HW-Barnstar PLS 20:46, 21 December 2006 (UTC)

Pages that maybe shouldn't have been deleted?

I saw your new page about this go by on Recent Changes: [1] The page about Seth Wilson was copied word-for-word from http://www.occ.edu/News/OCC.Archives.2006.12.Wilson.aspx, which claims copyright. Whatever you may or may not think about Seth Wilson as a notable or interesting person, we can't accept copyrighted text, and that's why I deleted it. In fact, the copy you are keeping in your userspace is also a copyright violation, and you should seriously consider taking it down. FreplySpang 00:52, 26 December 2006 (UTC)

Thanks. Someone did tag the article as non-notable, so I can understand why you'd think that was it, but the copyvio was the determining factor. Cheers, FreplySpang 00:57, 26 December 2006 (UTC)

Hiya, I didn't get a chance to review my article on Flash Radio before it was deleted impressively quickly. I posted a "hangon" message, but that doesn't seem to mean much. Is there a history of it somewhere, so I can copy and improve it offline and re-post? Thanks Mediacre

Thank you

Thanks for letting me know and for being so quick to deal with it. I've deleted it, and I'll do the same with any others. Best, SlimVirgin (talk) 07:17, 26 December 2006 (UTC)

Please annote Talk:Biocentrism or remove {{Clean}}

re: This edit this sequence missing two successive summaries. Please change your preferences to remind you when you fail to leave a cogent summary. No template should be applied without being well documented. The editors coming upon such behind you cannot read minds, and do not have infinite free time to search for missing summaries and rationales.
   A) Please leave a good summary on all edits
   B) It is especially important to leave an edit summary when applying any controversial tagging such as any banner tags. Such tags as clean can applied to talk pages, or better yet, be applied with a section version affecting only the areas you find have shortcomings.
     Just add the template name inside it's braces so they can be searched—they have no effect in summary lines but search great. Alternatively, square bracketed names will leave a link, so Added Template:clean because... would be a good start, and the link stands out well in history.


   C) Any such suggesting a talk page link are asking you to document and otherwise clue in other editors about your objections. That's 90% of the job, anyone can apply tags. Good editors either fix deficiencies, or list them on the talk if they don't have the time to fix up prose and balance text.
   D) If you can't respect others time by doing those three things to prevent a negative impact on those that come after you, please do not apply in-your-face banner tags. Limit yourself to inline tags like the first group on Wikipedia:Dispute templates and such similar tags in Category:Wikipedia maintenance templates. Thanks // FrankB 03:39, 31 December 2006 (UTC)

The Transformation of Italian Politics, 1990-1996

Hey man. So with that page, I was basically going to put up a modified version of my masters' thesis, shortened, and historical. That thing just kept getting bigger and bigger, and took over my life.

In about a week and a half, I could go and write up the article. For now, though I understand why you'd want to speedy-delete it. Let me ask, if you deleted it, would I incur flak if I recreated it later? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Zweifel (talkcontribs) 02:07, 9 January 2007 (UTC).

==Speedy deletion tag removal== Please stop removing speedy deletion notices from articles that you have created yourself. If you do not believe the article deserves to be deleted, then please do the following:

  1. Place {{hangon}} on the page. Please do not remove any existing speedy deletion notice(s)
  2. Make your case on the article's talk page.

Administrators will look at your reasoning before deciding what to do with the article. Thank you. RyanPostlethwaiteSee the mess I've created or let's have banter 11:30, 16 January 2007 (UTC)


^^^^misunderstanding

Early emo

Have insufficient expertise here. I'd been wanting to say something about it thematically, but haven't been able to determine exactly what. Is it so much the case that hardcore was "thematically restrictive" as the edit indicates? With bands as diverse as Black Flag and the Descendents from early on, I'm not sure that was ever true. In any event, my sense is that first-wave emo was distinguished by a common thematic focus (or at least tendency), but I'm not sure how to best (that is, best and efficiently) describe it. If you've got the killer phrase, deploy.—DCGeist 11:53, 18 January 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for restarting the article, I had no idea it had been deleted. Rather silly move if you ask me. And thanks for catching a few of those mistakes... I copy pasted the template from another article. -- Blahm 23:25, 28 May 2007 (UTC)

Hi there. I just wanted to let you know that I changed your {{db-spam}} tag to {{db-copyvio}} since I found all the info verbatim from the company's website. Regards, Flyguy649talkcontribs 03:14, 29 May 2007 (UTC)

Martini pong

I hate to tell you, but "This sucks" isn't grounds for deletion. However, WP:NONSENSE is, so I tagged the article for speedy deletion and hopefully it will be gone before the original author sobers up. :-) Realkyhick 07:16, 30 May 2007 (UTC)

Nonsense, but not patent nonsense? I think you're being a bit too nice to the author. :-) Realkyhick 07:24, 30 May 2007 (UTC)

Optimo

Go ahead and remove the tag if you feel that the article has indeed established the notability on reliable sources. At first glance though, the article reads a bit too much like an advertisement (of course, that's a different problem!) Cheers, Pascal.Tesson 23:16, 12 June 2007 (UTC)

Notability of Notorious MSG

Hi; I removed the {{notability}} tag from the captioned article, as it now cites multiple reliable sources (though I also added an {{inuniverse}} tag to the article instead, as the history section is written as though the character's stories about coming from China, being killed in driveby shootings, etc. were real). Please discuss further at Talk:Notorious MSG if you disagree with this. Cheers, cab 08:42, 15 June 2007 (UTC)

where do i test fcreating aritcles

how?

but i test in sandbox how come

how do i pracitce edit tht special page

User:Istarlive

*Le sigh*. How long do you expect before he starts whining about "all the other X who have pages" or how we are attacking "freedom of expression"?  :-) Coren 23:09, 18 June 2007 (UTC) Don't worry he wasnt whining in the first place he will follow his legal rights perhaps you should all consult your legal dept and refrain from misusing his copyrighted and service marked name and image. but it's all good over inflate your own egos and definitley keep trying to justify yourselves right into a a lawsuit or two I repeat perhaps you need to consult the cease and desist order place on this user name and company name and the violations wikipedia was warned of. After all if it wasnt for us companies,people and events and services and the articles about them you'd be back to knitting because there wouldnt be a wikipedia or the content that wikipedia has to have to exist as per the cease and desist order perhaps wikipedia can learn and take iStarLive suggestions that allow corrections by either the person or company and services refered to to verify their validity and accuracy

Your edits to Hardcore

cc'd from the Hardcore Talk page: As much as I hate say it--because it was my excessive zeal that was responsible for most of the stuff that got cut--but your edit was the right thing to do. I was trying to follow articles that I thought were good examples, only to find recently that I was using bad examples. I think, though, that some of the hardcore punk subgenres could go back in--I haven't changed my opinion on that (again). Maybe I'll go back to knitting. Wait, I don't know how to knit... --ShelfSkewed Talk 03:03, 19 June 2007 (UTC) yes Corin that is funny how others have the exact same desciption as iStarlive did and they are not accussed of spam and not deleted when a company owner states his correct company info what give a "editor" more rights then the company owner regarding proper and correct info?


But in my summary i am sure once you have the same order placed agains wikipedia by say iGoggle your lawyers and website owners will fix their errors in the wikipedia software and then the situation wouldnt have had to come to a legal head Iknow the owner of iStarLive and witnessed the whole story from the beggining as it was I who reported the violation of his service mark and copyrighted business name to his copyright agent.

I don't think I've even spoken to you before, but I seem to run into you all over the place, on electronic music articles on my watchlist and on newpage patrol. Your edits are always of a high standard, and you've certainly got a clue about speedy deletion and the overuse of {{db-nonsense}} amongst other things. Therefore,

cat:dubstep

it's great to make a cat and see someone getting stuck in within a matter of minutes, respect! i'm amazed such a cat doesn't already exist actually.

List of Dubstep artists is a nightmare at the mo, if you wanna do some work there ;) also i just made Kode9, any new article deserves a copyedit if you wanna have a look. --Kaini 01:13, 21 June 2007 (UTC)

Man I try to stay away from lists as a matter of policy. Thanks for creating the Dubstep cat and the Kode9 article, it looks good. Honestly I don't really know anything about him. --P4k 01:20, 21 June 2007 (UTC)
Well he's rather anonymous, but not as much as Burial, i guess. I reread an old Wire article tonight and i was amazed how much it gave away in the opening para. i'm not big on cats either but this one seemed a glaring omission, and i had a decent reference in front of me so... --Kaini 01:29, 21 June 2007 (UTC)
What did it give away? I liked Burial's album but I'm not a big dubstep fan and I don't really follow the scene. Generally I just download a mix from dubstepforum every once in a while. --P4k 02:41, 21 June 2007 (UTC)
Well, his real name for one, which actually takes a bit of digging to find online. A fair bit of backstory too. I recommend Shackleton if you wanna check out someone doing really original things with the genre. The new Burial EP is wonderful too. --Kaini 03:12, 21 June 2007 (UTC)
WHEN I SEE THE TOWERS FALL :D. I liked "Blood On My Hands" a lot but so far none of the other stuff I've heard has seemed very interesting to me. I need to listen to him more though. --P4k 03:21, 21 June 2007 (UTC)
oh, man, blood on my hands... that track is just supreme. one of my favourite dubstep tracks ever, and one of the subtlest things in the genre. on the other hand, another track of his, i want to eat you, on mordant music, probably has the heaviest bass drop i've ever heard :D --Kaini 03:28, 21 June 2007 (UTC)

William Shakespeare

Do you mind if we remove the fictionalized biography recommended by Stephen Greenblatt from the William Shakespeare "Further reading"? However entertaining it might be, it is not a book that readers should be sent to for "further information" regarding Shakespeare. see here for the debate. Awadewit | talk 20:47, 22 June 2007 (UTC)

Hi, I don't know how it happened but when I tried tagging Lemon lime seasoning for CSD, it didn't work but I got "page was tagged" message in Twinkle. So I went ahead and posted a warning on the user's talk page. So it is not really a recreation, just a bug in twinkle i think.- TwoOars 19:58, 23 June 2007 (UTC)
