Speedy deletion of Society for the Preservation of Beers from the Wood[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Society for the Preservation of Beers from the Wood requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about about a person, organization (band, club, company, etc.) or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable

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.  Ravenswing  16:12, 3 November 2008 (UTC)

AfD nomination of Society for the Preservation of Beers from the Wood[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

I have nominated Society for the Preservation of Beers from the Wood, an article you created, for deletion. I do not think that this article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and have explained why at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Society for the Preservation of Beers from the Wood. Your opinions on the matter are welcome at that same discussion page; also, you are welcome to edit the article to address these concerns. Thank you for your time.  Ravenswing  19:37, 3 November 2008 (UTC)

Wentworth Miller[edit]

Re: removing the einsiders.com citations in Wentworth Miller but leaving the cited quotes. I will note the quotes as unsourced. 842U (talk) 11:50, 1 March 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for fixing that - I couldn't figure out for the life of me what was wrong with that reference! -Dewelar (talk) 17:46, 4 September 2011 (UTC)

Recurring edits[edit]

Thank you for continuing to watch and fix Collis Potter Huntington. Do you have any idea why a series of anonymous users, or maybe one user with different IP addresses, constantly puts CPH's birthday to April from October? Is there anything we can do about it? Ellin Beltz (talk) 15:53, 27 October 2011 (UTC)

I don't know more than what's on the talk page. Apparently there is some disagreement in available records, though there does seem to be a stronger case for October. -- Pemilligan (talk) 00:57, 28 October 2011 (UTC)

According to "the definitive biography" (Collis Potter Huntington, by Cerinda W. Evans, 2 volumes, Publisher: Newport News, Va. : Mariners' Museum (1954) ASIN: B0056PIFGU) which was written from family materials at the request of the family, it's October. I have no idea where the April date came from, it looks like an old typo that keeps getting repeated.Ellin Beltz (talk) 03:10, 30 October 2011 (UTC)

Mr. Anonymous edited again. And left a message to my note on the previous ISP. I changed the page again... Checked that I got all the birthdays correct throughout entire document. Is there anyone to appeal to for help to stop this? Ellin Beltz (talk) 19:26, 4 November 2011 (UTC)

I found the page on disruptive editing, read the advice for dealing with disruptive editors, and made an entry at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents seeking help. Let's hope for the best. -- Pemilligan (talk) 02:46, 5 November 2011 (UTC)

If one or more unregistered users continue to remove "heckler" and registered users leave it alone, it might help to seek {{pp-semi}} semi-protection. I added a little local color from 1972 to the article. —Anomalocaris (talk) 04:32, 27 March 2012 (UTC)

Howard County Schools[edit]

About this edit

That was not a good edit. Firstly it reverted other changes made too, and those were beneficial changes. Secondly you said "Text says Columbia but references give Ellicott City address and census map says West Friendship." - So why did you not cite new sources? The address "10910 Clarksville Pike (Route 108) Ellicott City, MD 21042" and the map http://www2.census.gov/geo/maps/dc10map/GUBlock/st24_md/place/p2419125_columbia/DC10BLK_P2419125_002.pdf (a stub sticking out "That says "Dist 3, West Friendship 90236" is the one that has the physical offices of the district and that is a part of Columbia CDP) show it as being in Columbia as of 2010 - While there is a West Friendship, Maryland it is not a CDP defined by the US government.

You should understand that USPS city names sometimes don't reflect the actual locations - the USPS city name says "Ellicot City" but the map shows it being in Columbia WhisperToMe (talk) 01:51, 3 December 2012 (UTC)

Image problem in Ellicott City[edit]

FYI, I posted a query under the Village Pump. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Village_pump_%28technical%29#.22Image.22_display_anomaly. We'll see what happens there I guess (if anything). Having said that, they are having some kind of general display problem "until the 9th", but whether it affects this or not, I cannot say. Student7 (talk) 18:52, 7 January 2014 (UTC)

A question[edit]

Hi Pemilligan,

You will recognize me as the person who has recently edited the elder scrolls page. While I am new to Wikipedia editing, I would ask that you please explain to me your reversion of my edits to the elder scrolls page. I may seem unqualified to make such edits, but I am the son of one of the writers who worked under Emil Pagliarulo (who you may or may not recognize as the head of writing for Skyrim) and have had my fathers assistance in making these edits. I am not saying that your edits were made incorrectly (although my father is inclined to believe so) but I would at least like to know why. When your read this, please contact me at stevethemonkey42@gmail.com

Sincerely,

Stevethemonkey42 Stevethemonkey42 (talk) 04:19, 20 June 2014 (UTC)

Information should come from reliable published sources. What you added at the end of the article was unsourced and seemed like original research. What you're describing above sounds like primary sourcing, which should only be used with care. -- Pemilligan (talk) 04:57, 20 June 2014 (UTC)

Tri-City Suns[edit]

Hey, I noticed that you reverted my edit on Tri-City Suns twice now, and I was hoping that you could explain what was wrong with my edit, so we don't start an edit war or something. spiderjerky (talk) 14:10, 5 December 2014 (UTC)

As I mentioned in the previous edit summary, the Tri-City Suns never played in the American Professional Basketball League according to any reliable sources I can locate. The Atlantic Coast Professional Basketball League changed its name after they played, which I've added to the text this time. I also made a change I've been meaning to for some time, indicating that there are no sources I've been able to find that show they played at all after 2011. -- Pemilligan (talk) 15:48, 5 December 2014 (UTC)
Got it, thanks. spiderjerky (talk) 18:12, 5 December 2014 (UTC)

Gamindustry numbers on Elder Scrolls Online sales section[edit]

I had a litle chat with Ferret and we cleared things out, you can see the discussion on his talk page, DONT revert this change unless you want to get reported too 90.144.32.15 (talk) 06:51, 17 August 2015 (UTC)

If you think something on Wikipedia needs to be reported, you should always feel free to do so. As to your first point, clearly Ferret does not agree with you any more than I do. -- Pemilligan (talk) 12:14, 17 August 2015 (UTC)

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.

Publisher vs. work[edit]

In the case of websites, is Amazon.com really a work? Amazon.com is not italicized in its own article. --Jprg1966 (talk) 04:31, 28 January 2016 (UTC)

In this case, Amazon.com and Peace Corps Online are the websites, not the publishers. -- Pemilligan (talk) 01:21, 29 January 2016 (UTC)

Perhaps you can help[edit]

Pemilligan,

Perhaps you can help suggest relevant incoming links for Moveable Feast (organization) ?

Thanks very much for your ideas and input,

Alexandria[edit]

Here's an explanation of the edits:

  • 1. Wikipedia pages are meant to document history, and the past. Keep in mind the school closed very recently (2016!)
  • 2. Even though the school is not in Alexandria proper it had a postal address of "Alexandria, Virginia" (8333 Richmond Highway Alexandria, VA 22309) so the average person is going to expect that it be there.

Readers expect such information in their articles and I do my best to fulfill that demand. WhisperToMe (talk) 02:34, 25 July 2016 (UTC)

Correcting links from Pelham Parkway (road) to Pelham Parkway[edit]

Hi, I see you're undoing all my changing of links from Pelham Parkway to Pelham Parkway (road) since the latter was a redirect. I've moved the page back to Pelham Parkway (road) in order to distinguish from Pelham Parkway (neighborhood), Bronx. This naming convention is seen in Gun Hill Road (road), so that is why the redirect exists. Thanks, epicgenius (talk) 02:42, 1 April 2017 (UTC)

Never mind, I moved it back because the parkway is the primary topic of the name "Pelham Parkway". epicgenius (talk) 02:49, 1 April 2017 (UTC)

Ben Cardin, etc., results[edit]

Thanks for changing the color of the 2012 independent Senate candidate from Green to yellow. There was a libertarian in the race who got 1.2% of the vote. I have no strong opinion about whether or not that should be included in the chart. It's not inconsequential, but given the low performance (up from 0% in previous election), I wonder if it's necessary. What do you think? Activist (talk) 23:07, 16 January 2018 (UTC)

I noticed that, too. I'd like to see it included, but I'm concerned it will make the table too cramped.--Pemilligan (talk) 01:52, 17 January 2018 (UTC)

May I ask a favor?[edit]

Hi, Pemilligan,

I was wondering if you could help me fill in some of the bare references for the Earl Holliman Wiki page. I tried myself but I'm having a bit of trouble, it would be much appreciated. Thank you for your time/consideration.Black BIC Ballpoint (talk) 17:10, 12 July 2018 (UTC)

@Black BIC Ballpoint: OK, I've used the reFill tool on that page and it was able to combine some duplicate references and apply Template:Cite web a couple of times. It looks like there are further opportunities to apply templates, and the several references titled "Archived copy" should have their actual titles inserted. -- Pemilligan (talk) 03:55, 13 July 2018 (UTC)

Schuylkill and Susquehanna Navigation Company edit ... Comment[edit]

Hello Pemilligan.

You made an edit to the Schuylkill and Susquehanna Navigation Company article, the "See also" section. Your summary was "/* See also */ MOS:ALSO calls for "a brief annotation when a link's relevance is not immediately apparent" which none of this was..." The style manual notes that Editors should provide a brief annotation when a link's relevance is not immediately apparent, when the meaning of the term may not be generally known, or when the term is ambiguous. I am working on several early Pennsylvania canals that all tied in with each other. The Schuylkill canal article had what I thought was a very useful "see also' section that explained what the various other related canals were. The value to the reader was in the various canals that had part of the same name in them (Delaware and Schuylkill). I made changes to the other articles along the same lines as the Schuylkill canal article. The "see also" section in that article was created by User:Fabartus in 2016. There have been roughly thirty edits since then by other editors and it could be argued that the "see also" material passed consensus at that time. Since you are now an editor in this group of articles on early Pennsylvania canals, can we come up with a consensus on what type to use for this group of articles? I think some of the previous material is relevant and useful to the reader. It should also reflect the good judgment on the part of the editors as the MOS allows. Whatever changes are made to the Schuylkill and Susquehanna Navigation article should apply to the others.
Thanks ... Risk Engineer (talk) 11:39, 19 July 2018 (UTC)

@Risk Engineer: I wouldn't say that others not editing the sections indicates a consensus; I would call it an oversight. Regarding the style manual, to me the annotations were not brief. For the links themselves, coming in an article about canals and mostly ending with the word "canal", their relevance seems apparent, their meaning should be generally known, and they don't seem ambiguous. -- Pemilligan (talk) 21:43, 21 July 2018 (UTC)
