  • I appreciate the apology however I have already reported you to Administrators. Vandalism is not a good thing to repeat on Wikipedia and despite warnings you continued anyways. Your userpage also attacks administrator Canadian-Bacon, personal attacks are also not a good thing to repeat on Wikipedia.¤~Persian Poet Gal (talk) 23:50, 10 January 2007 (UTC)

Sorry about that.

I thought I was in the sand box and you have my word it wont happen again. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 00:34, 11 January 2007 (UTC).


Thanks for your support. Have a nice week and god bless. --Sir James Paul, La gloria è a dio 03:03, 11 January 2007 (UTC)


Hey, thanks so much for supporting my recent RFA. A number of editors considered that I wasn't ready for the mop yet and unfortunately the RFA did not succeed (69/26/11). There are a number of areas which I will be working on (including changing my username) in the next few months in order to allay the fears of those who opposed my election to administrator.

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank you sincerely for your support over the past week. I've been blown away by the level of interest taken in my RFA and appreciate the time and energy dedicated by all the editors who have contributed to it, support, oppose and neutral alike. I hope to bump into you again soon and look forward to serving you and Wikipedia in any way I can. Cheers!

I made a constructive edit and it was removed

I have made several constructive edits that have been removed...should I leave a website link or something. No wonder so many people say wikipedia is inaccurate! You leave it with false and outdated information! —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 01:27, 12 January 2007 (UTC).

Can you tell me how to set up the "status" thing? Hopefully my OCD will cancel out my ADHD and I'll get into the habit of using it every time. I'm starting to really need it. Thanks in advance (I really appreciate all your anti-vandalism efforts - I'm afraid I could never do what you do and do anything else), NinaOdell | Talk 16:45, 12 January 2007 (UTC)

Sure I would be glad to help you out with that Nina! I personally implement a manuel version of a status changer but you can use an automated version if you like. If you would like three buttons at the top of your screen that you can press to indicate if you are online, offline, or busy; follow the directions: here.

If you have any other questions in regards to how to implement it (such as placing it at the top corner of your page like I did, feel free to ask). If you would like a version exactly like mine (which is manuel and adds no automatic buttons to press on the top of your screen), feel free to ask again! Hope this helps.¤~Persian Poet Gal (talk) 19:27, 13 January 2007 (UTC)

Persian Poet Gal

Hi I saw that your Status changer is a Bit Outdated.It is better to use Javascript where by the push of a button you can be "online" ,"offline" or "busy". I urge you to use these Feature becoz its simple and easier..Namaste..ø~Cometstyles~ø (talk)

  • I did actually use to use a Javascript version of it but somehow the automation of it did not seem to work for me. I ended up making my own manuel mockup of it and simply seem to prefer it. Thanks though for giving some advice on the technical know-how though. I love learning how to implement new gadgets and gizmos with coding :)...¤~Persian Poet Gal (talk) 19:11, 13 January 2007 (UTC)


This is,or I did not mean to "vandalize" the article (Alezander Hamilton), if I am I was simply removing vandalism on the bottom of the section "early life" which said "HE HAD A BIG BUT". I removed it because it did not seem to fit into the article, and appeared to be vandalism. I am very confused, and I do not think that I am because I did not edit any pages blood, bicycles, or maga man x characters. When I edited pages on this site before I was called I do not think that I am because I could not find it on the Alexander Hamilton history page.Thank you for your time Please respond -- 21:32, 13 January 2007 (UTC),or

  • This diff link indicates the IP address of replaced his last name with nonsense. If you share an IP address then maybe the edit was not placed by yourself directly.

ACCP article

Dear Persian Poet Gal, I am writing to ask you to refrain from reverting the ACCP page to the information it contained on 1-12-06. I object strongly to your reversion of the American Council for Cultural Policy page on Wikipedia, and to the deletion of the edits which I have submitted. I am a member of the board of this now defunct organization, and I am authorized by the board to make corrections to the article purporting to describe the ACCP on the Wikipedia site. I have to insist that the previous text be completely altered. The organization is unable to "discuss" or argue an alternative position to completely false and libelous statements. Every characterization of the organization on the original page was false. Your suggestion that I discuss this on the "talk" page makes no sense, if the intent of Wikipedia is to make available accurate, responsible, and reliable information. The creator of the previos article is the person who should be encouraged to write on the "talk" page. If you will take the time to read my article and to compare it to the orginal, you will note that the original makes statements so contradictory to the actual facts of - for instance - the meetings with State Department and Defense Department officials that there is simply no way of comparing them, as if they were two dfferent versions of the same story. Several of the purported citations in the original actually cite to sources that do not contain the information purported. Every statement in my article was drawn from official statements to the press by the ACCP, the organization's legal charter, the organization's website, and publicly reported events in the New York Times. If you would feel more comfortable with a few additional citations, I will be glad to provide links to Wall St. Journal and NYT articles, favorable academic reviews of the book etc. Send me a note at I would appreciate the courtesy of your giving your real name, as I have. I will send a copy of this letter to Wikipedia to encourage them to monitor this page and to ensure that it retains the accurate and honest description of this organization and its history as noted below. Sincerely, Kate Fitz Gibbon Edited page: The American Council for Cultural Policy (ACCP) was a public charity created in 2002 and closed in late 2006, dedicated to enhancing knowledge and understanding of issues and policies affecting the preservation and accessibility of works of art. During the ACCP’s four years of existence, the organization remained dedicated to the implementation of balanced policies on the trade in art from all periods, to support for scholarly research, both in the archaeological field and in U.S. universities and museums, and to public education that promotes the exhibition, cataloging, and preservation of works of art. Its greatest efforts were devoted to finding practical solutions to the many issues raised by the international transfer of works of art, believing that cooperation between U.S. institutions and source countries is essential in order to ameliorate the destruction of archaeological and artistic resources. Concerns over threats to Iraq’s cultural heritage inspired the late 2002 ACCP initiative on the protection of sites and cultural institutions in Iraq. At this time, neither archaeological scholars nor museum organizations had made visible efforts to engage the U.S. government on these issues. Council members met with representatives of the Departments of State and Defense in January of 2003. The meetings were attended by Max Anderson and Professor McGuire Gibson, as well as Arthur Houghton and Ashton Hawkins of the American Council for Cultural Policy. The meetings discussed updating the database created in 1991 in order to avoid damaging Iraqi archaeological sites and monuments and to discuss concerns about strengthening the administration of Iraqi archaeological sites and monuments after any war. (This second meeting included Bonnie Burnham, President of the World Monuments Fund.) The ACCP initiative served as a model of unity and cohesion of purpose, drawing together members of both the museum and archaeological communities. Regrettably, at this writing, the Iraq situation has deteriorated dramatically. Continuing efforts by members of the ACCP and by other U.S. organizations to spur the U.S. government to work effectively to preserve Iraq’s cultural heritage have been obscured by daily violence as the civil war spirals. Subsequent to these meetings, a campaign launched on several listserves accused ACCP of encouraging the US government to facilitate the despoliation of Iraqi cultural treasures, and other false information on the goals of the ACCP were disseminated to the world press. While most of these accusations were subsequently withdrawn, similar libelous accusations still float to the surface from time to time. The ACCP’s first major educational initiative was the establishment of a website that included US and international laws relevant to cultural policy issues. Major articles on cultural policy were reprinted in full on the site, along with an extensive bibliography on cultural property issues and links to ethical practices policies for museums and other arts organizations, and to art register and law enforcement resources. A second, even more important achievement in the educational mission of the American Council for Cultural Policy was the publication of Who Owns the Past? Cultural Policy, Cultural Property, and the Law by Rutgers University Press (ed. Kate Fitz Gibbon) in Fall 2005. The book contained articles by thirty distinguished contributors, drawn from the nation’s top legal scholars, museum professionals, anthropologists, archaeologists, and collectors. The book reflected the ACCP’s commitment to include all perspectives and to encourage an open debate on vitally important arts issues. The most recent ACCP initiative was in informing the public on China’s request for the imposition of import restrictions by the United States on virtually all Chinese materials up to 1912. The ACCP co-ordinated with the Benjamin Cardozo School of Law in creating a forum for discussion of this and other cultural property issues. In April 2006, the ACCP co-sponsored a panel discussion with Cardozo Law School and The Asia Society; China and Cultural Property: Who Owns the Past? Participants included Professor Justin Hughes, Dr. Magnus Fiskesjo, James J. Lally, Nancy Murphy, and Marc F. Wilson. Jo Backer Laird provided a summation and critical assessment of the panel discussion. (Full text of panel discussion is available on The Asia Society website.)

The ACCP was headquartered in New York City and also had a representative in Washington. The Council's work was overseen by a Board of Advisors which includes scholars in the fields of history, art history and archaeology; museum officials including: directors, administrators, curators, and trustees; art collectors; distinguished representatives of not-for-profit and other public service organizations; and legal specialists in art and the international art trade. The Council received financial support from individuals, foundations, and organizations. It received no public money. The Council Board included President Ashton Hawkins, Vice President Arthur Houghton, Treasurer William Pearlstein, Education Coordinator Kate Fitz Gibbon and Secretary Arielle Kozloff. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by WikieditorACCP (talkcontribs) 22:39, 13 January 2007 (UTC).

  • First of all my recommendation for discussion does make sense due to the nature and extremity of the edit you are making. Second of all if you have serious issue with the content of that article it would be beneficial to discuss this on the talk page or contacting Wikipedia directly. Libel concerns should be addressed through official statements from the organization or representatives like yourself and not through demanding editors not to edit the content that you inserted into the article.¤~Persian Poet Gal (talk) 22:47, 13 January 2007 (UTC)

For the detailed instruction, I give my humble thanks. I'm apparently such crap at this kind of stuff that I screwed up even that. I thought I did everything you said, but when I put the template on my talk page, it just came up a red link. I think I'll forgo it. By the way - would you accept a mop? I think it's time you got one if you want it. NinaOdell | Talk 14:49, 14 January 2007 (UTC)

  • I forgot that you need to create the status page first :P...I went ahead and did it for you. Try the steps once more and see if it works, make sure to press one of the buttons to indicate your status. As far as accepting the mop, Nina it is very generous and kind of you...however I feel that since I have been active since October 2006 (even though the account was created in 2005) a nomination should wait at least till February. Administrator Husond was interested in submitting it by then and if you wish I would be more than honored with your co-nom. Honestly though I really do not expect that from you :), I appreciate your kind words well enough. Catch you later...¤~Persian Poet Gal (talk) 18:16, 14 January 2007 (UTC)

Talk page formatting

By the way, your talk page is displayed in extremely small print on my machine, which makes it a bit difficult to read. Could you change it? Thanks, Fut.Perf. 10:56, 15 January 2007 (UTC)

  • That's strange, I just did a test print and it was quite large and legible. What kind of printer settings or browser are you printing off of? Also, what may be the interest in printing my page if I may ask :)?¤~Persian Poet Gal (talk) 19:30, 15 January 2007 (UTC)
Ah, sorry, I didn't mean "print" as in "on paper", I just meant display on screen. Is it on purpose that you've all got it in a smaller font? Fut.Perf. 19:39, 15 January 2007 (UTC)

  • Do you mean the name of your userpage? Well Glen S has an interesting code where you insert: {{User:Glen_S/Title|Insert Title Here}}. Or if you mean change an article name, you can redirect it to a more appropriate name and copy and paste the content to the new article (that is if it a valid redirect and is uncontroversial to do so). Which one might it be :)?¤~Persian Poet Gal (talk) 17:22, 18 January 2007 (UTC)

Hey. Why I cant editing article "Nicolaus Kopernik"?? This is not in accordance with Wikipedias principle.

of course this is Nicolaus Copernicus---Mahal11 23:22, 23 January 2007 (UTC)

  • That particular article right now is fully protected due to editing disputes. If you look at the top of the page you will notice a tag which states this. This is due to users edit warring with each other, that is reverting, removing, or editing content which is not agreed upon. Administrators enact a full protect till the dispute is resolved or has died down. Full protection can be controversial and even wrong at times, however usually administrators enact full protects that abide by Wikipedia policy. Hope this answers your question.¤~Persian Poet Gal (talk) 23:26, 23 January 2007 (UTC)

For being a voice of reason. Samsara (talk  contribs) 08:09, 17 January 2007 (UTC)

Hello hello hello!

I sort of gave up on the whole business because I couldn't find the sub-page you created. It doesn't matter - I'm most active from 4:30 in the morning (when I get up - I go to sleep @8:30 - 9PM) until 8 - 9AM, so who the hell cares if I'm in or I'm out. I already put a "busy" template on my talk page, so, you know, whatever. I'm pretty much in the "Fire bad, tree pretty" realm of thought by evening anyway.

I would suggest that if you want your RFA to be taken seriously by the community, that you put yourself up for Editor Review now. Don't worry about the backlog - that's getting dealt with. I've noticed that the same issues that come up in an Editor Review come up in an RFA, which would give you a chance to address them and adjust accordingly (or what-have you).

I know the perception is that a person only comes under review when they want an adminship, but look at me (and others). I put myself on Editor Review with absolutely no desire to become an admin (ever). It's just about the only way to get feedback from the community without applying for something, so a lot of people do it. In my opinion, it's a good thing to do when one is feeling "shaky" or "disgruntled" in any case.

How about this bitter cold in NorCal - or are you getting it? We've had temperatures in the low twenties for almost a week in the mornings. It seems to be letting up a little, but we had a power outage yesterday that knocked out almost the entire county @ 8AM. I think it was due to the cold, but I don't think PG & E is saying right now. If you're feeling it, Bundle up! NinaOdell | Talk 15:15, 17 January 2007 (UTC)

  • Though I really am not looking at an RfA as my key priority at the moment, I think that's pretty good advice. I'll see if I can create the subpage sometime soon and allow other Wikipedians to have at me :P. I live in Southern Cal but believe it or not, I got to see snow for the first time in my entire life!!! My family recently moved to the San Bernardino county and the weather is much colder than Pasadena (where we used to live). Our lawn was covered with a very thin layer of the white stuff but it was darn near amazing to me regardless. As far as power outages, we only experienced some minor light flickers. Hopefully that will be the worst of it. Last year the winds were bad enough to cut our power for about a day or so. You have to admit though as California residents we are pretty spoiled as far as weather still.¤~Persian Poet Gal (talk) 19:55, 17 January 2007 (UTC)

On Vandal fighting and Editor Reviews

Hello, Persian Poet Gal! I have two questions for you, if you don't mind. First, what tool, if any at all, do you use to leave warning templates on user pages? The way that I leave my messages seems to be much slower than yours. Second, I am interested in working on your editor review. Is the purpose of your editor review to prepare yourself for an RfA, or are you simply seeking comments? If it is the RfA, then I will look more into your edit count than conduct. Similarly, I'll look into conduct more if you just looking for comments. Cheers, PTO 01:34, 18 January 2007 (UTC)

I use a JavaScript based monobook tool for reverting and warning vandals (see this post for more details on it). As far as the editor review, I'm doing it for both reasons mostly. I was encouraged to submit an editor review by Nina, if you look up at the post above. First and foremost an editor review would be good anyways considering that the community has often given me good advice in several cases. Also, Administrator Husond and a few other users have been interested in nominating me for adminship and I have agreed to oblidge a nomination by February. I truly appreciate your interest to submit detailed editor review for me :), please have at me! Thanks.¤~Persian Poet Gal (talk) 01:42, 18 January 2007 (UTC)

I originally posted the "hangon message", but the just deleted the entire article. I did however leave a message on the [Talk:Everett Kaser Software|Talk] page nonetheless to explain what happened and to get some help.

I don't want to repeat it all here, so if you could take a look at what I wrote...I'd be much obliged.

ThanksBlipadouzi 00:19, 19 January 2007 (UTC)

  • Hello, the only major issues with it were that the content did not contain a neutral point of view and was written in a promotional tone. Refer to the other article that was linked to in the reference you provided on Talk: 3D Realms, it shows a good example of how to shape the article. If you have any other questions feel free to ask.¤~Persian Poet Gal (talk) 01:09, 19 January 2007 (UTC)
Thanks...I'll be more careful in the future, and will see what I can do about the Kaser article.Blipadouzi 02:53, 19 January 2007 (UTC)

OK, I apologise, he just really got me upset, as he is doing nothing but vandalizing. No hard feelings I hope. Oh and I like your user page :) Cheers. Dino Bizjak

  • No worries. I understand that it might be a tad blood-boiling dealing with blatant vandals but it is important to remember that it is just someone typing nonsense on a computer screen. In real life people do things that can be quite worse. Just let them trudge along and get bored after they are blocked ;)...¤~Persian Poet Gal (talk) 01:12, 24 January 2007 (UTC)

Issues with the new warning templates and VP!

As you can see, I'm having issues getting the new UW templates working with VandalProof! I think I may revert to the old templates until VP is up to speed with the new ones. VP is adding an extra line to the new warnings, double-signing them and recognizing usage of all new warnings as a Blatant Vandal warning -- the last being a fairly serious issue insofar as it makes it difficult to know for sure what level warning to give. Anyway, just explaining the oddness on that last vandal warning you and I accidentally "crossed streams" on :). Ginsengbomb 07:11, 24 January 2007 (UTC)

  • Yes I know, Lupin's tool is also not adjusted to the new warning system. It just needs some time to mature and the vandal tool programmers to key in.¤~Persian Poet Gal (talk) 07:13, 24 January 2007 (UTC)

Regarding my warning

Hi, you claim that I have recently vandalized the George W. Bush article. I do not recall editing the page in any manner in the past few weeks. Please recheck your sources or give evidence of my vandalism. Thank you. Mehicdino 19:18, 10 February 2007 (UTC)

  • These two edits done under your account were considered vandalism: 1 & 2. Your account might have been possibly compromised. Be careful with your online passwords, hopefully the vandalism will not occur again.¤~Persian Poet Gal (talk) 19:25, 10 February 2007 (UTC)

Deleted Page

Hi there,

I am wondering why my page was deleted by someone called user:mailer diablo. If you could let me know that would be appreciated.

Another threadjack... I'd appreciated it if you'd also review me. I posted an editor review and received one response. It's been there for, oh, a week or two, with no further acknowledgment. I'd appreciate another user's perspective. Thanks in advance! -- Tuvok^Talk|Desk|Contribs  02:10, 25 January 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for the review. I responded on that page (let me know if I shouldn't be doing that).
Just out of curiosity, you wouldn't happen to have any suggestions for shortening the code I used for my signature, would you? It's long enough that it gets annoying even for me. I appreciate it, and thanks again! -- Tuvok^Talk|Desk|Contribs  23:40, 25 January 2007 (UTC)
Replying to comments is completely acceptible in reviews, no worries. I'm sorry but I'm not quite sure how to shorten the code of your signature if you are interested in preserving it like that. All I could recommend would be to implement less color or span codes.¤~Persian Poet Gal (talk) 17:10, 26 January 2007 (UTC)

Removal of sprotect tag from Buddhism article

Howdy - Did you purposely remove the sprotect tag from the Buddhism article? Are you against its semi-protect status? If it was accidental, would you feel comfortable undo-ing your change (if someone hasn't already done it)? Sorry if I'm showing my ignorance and I appreciate your responding to my confusion :-) With metta, Larry Rosenfeld (talk) 23:08, 25 January 2007 (UTC)

  • That was a mistake, sorry about that! No I'm not against the protection, I was the one who requested it on WP:RFPP :P. Again, my apologies.¤~Persian Poet Gal (talk) 23:12, 25 January 2007 (UTC)
Excellent! Thanks so much for the quick action! And I especially appreciate your making the initial request at WP:RFPP in the first place. Good work! Thanks again! Best, Larry Rosenfeld (talk) 23:15, 25 January 2007 (UTC)


May I know why you have reverted Maleabroad? Please give me the specifics.Kanchanamala 02:55, 26 January 2007 (UTC)

  • Maleabroad has made many disruptive edits to Hindu related articles which have caused me and several other editors to revert him. Many of them were strong pov pushes (see WP:NPOV). The edit summaries he left also breached WP:CIVIL with his regular accusations of people being racists. See this report on AN/I for more details.¤~Persian Poet Gal (talk) 17:14, 26 January 2007 (UTC)

Well, about now I'll launch into a lecture as to why you should be using Firefox! (IE, woman what are you thinking! ;) - I'm kidding... kinda)
Hmmm.. Thing is, IE is about as stable as, well, a laid off US postal worker so it could be hard to locate the problem. Did you change anything before this started happening?Glen 04:11, 1 February 2007 (UTC)
Well if nothing's been changed in your monobook I seriously doubt its the problem (what the problem is I could not tell you) - looking through it I see nothing that would cause this problem. IE is a seriously flawed browser IMHO, an upgrade to Firefox would serve you well (its much much much more secure). Sorry I can't offer more assistance :( Glen 04:17, 1 February 2007 (UTC)

Image:Throat Diagram.png

Hi! I recently recreated the aforementioned PNG image in SVG format. Image:Throat Diagram.svg. This file is much smaller and scales much better. I was curious as to if I did it all correctly (I am no throat expert) and If I can release it to the Public Domain. --Indolences 08:04, 1 February 2007 (UTC)

  • Very nice work, the lines are quite clean and nice! However, graphically the image needs some adjustments. The transparency aspect does not seem appropriate for this image and I would suggest to raster it against a white background. Second, the lung area could use some work, the lungs are not defined enough and are very hard to see. Also, it may be better that the trachea overlaps that area rather than the opposite. One minor image discrepancy you have in your image was that you did not include the tunnel of the nasal passage as I had but it is not a big deal if it is not shown. Some areas look a bit too flat and could use some more shading but that's just my preference and not a big deal as well. All in all, I think it is still pretty safe to leave the image I have created on the Throat article but I would not mind at all if you would like to convert that same image into .svg as long as you give me credit as the original uploader :).¤~Persian Poet Gal (talk) 19:41, 1 February 2007 (UTC)
How about this?

Throat Diagram.svgThroat Diagram.png

I understand the lungs are still pretty bad. Especially with the label haha. Is this one better? :) --Indolences 05:01, 2 February 2007 (UTC)
I love the clearness of the svg for sure! However, stylistically it still has issues. Nice job rastering it against a white background but a small part is clipped and still is transparent. The lung colors also seem to overlap each other rather than remaining inside the lines (all the components in that area such as the trachea, all seem to overlap). The label could also be diverted to the side for the lungs and use one of the black lines to point at them. I still think the first image should remain on Throat however, keep working on your raster and I'll give you my opinions :).¤~Persian Poet Gal (talk) 05:07, 2 February 2007 (UTC)
I added some lungs and I think I added everything you suggested. What do you think? --Indolences 17:07, 2 February 2007 (UTC)
PS: I saw the "recent changes watch" thing in your userpage and I watched and reverted stuff on the RCP for two hours haha. Also, I think it would be useful to add {{skiptotoctalk}} to the top of this page. Lots of scrolling without.
Looking much better! Unfortunately the image still got clipped again and you have the transparency problem on the bottom (for some reason the whole background does not seem to raster white). Also, the lungs should be completely filled in and a small portion of it is not. The image is definitely shaping up though and it might be an effective replacement for Throat in an .svg version if you address all the image concerns. Nice work ;). PS: I implemented some skiptotoctalk coding my own way.¤~Persian Poet Gal (talk) 18:39, 2 February 2007 (UTC)

By the way, I just noticed all the orphan fair use warnings on your talk page. Please try to aim to upload images that you will most certainly use. Uploading images that are not intended to be used immediately or are removed quickly after being added to an article, can become problematic sometimes.¤~Persian Poet Gal (talk) 18:42, 2 February 2007 (UTC)

All of those images are fair use (mostly logos) and ones which I later uploaded better ones of. I have plenty of images which are used on articles, and I put all of them on Commons. User:Indolences/SVG. So is the throat sufficient for the article? --Indolences 19:02, 2 February 2007 (UTC)
Almost sufficient, first fix the minor issues I brought up. Again, good work.¤~Persian Poet Gal (talk) 19:05, 2 February 2007 (UTC)

(from Rumblegirl)

Not sure why i was recently called out for "vandalism" for a recent change i made to frida kahlo. the sentences i removed were completely opinionated by whoever wrote them claiming she was a "loose" woman. there weren't any sources for backing this up. i really don't think it should have been reverted and i don't think it deserved a vandalism warning.


  • Um, I'm a little confused to what you are referencing to Rumblegirl. I see no indications of you editing that article in your contribution history (unless you edited it on an anonymous IP address), nor have I reverted any additions to that article. If you feel the revert was a mistake, kindly approach the editor in question who made the revert and leave a polite reasoning to where the error was made (as you did on my talk page).¤~Persian Poet Gal (talk) 01:04, 5 February 2007 (UTC)

Thank you so much for reverting vandalism to my userpage and, of course, for the kind Purple Barnstar. :-) I had no choice but to semi-protect my userpage. Hopefully the vandal won't come up with brand new ideas... Kindest regards, Húsönd 04:57, 7 February 2007 (UTC)

Correct saying

Hi, Persian Poet Gal. Cool user page (and cool name). Just wanted to point out one little thing in the beginning... you typed "pleasure to meet your acquaintance". I assume you meant pleasure to MAKE your acquaintance. Common mistake, and thought you probably didn't even realize it. However, I don't like to edit user pages, since it tends to be personal. So, just thought I'd mention it to you, in case you wanted to change it. Have a good one! --Anietor 05:05, 7 February 2007 (UTC)

  • I've had to leave a message on Tearsofglitter's talk page, as a lot of people are reverting this user's edits. It seems that this user has only edited things related to Anna Nicole Smith. Acalamari 21:55, 8 February 2007 (UTC)
  • Actually, this user had no edits for almost an entire year until today. Acalamari 22:04, 8 February 2007 (UTC)
  • Hey, Persian! I just read about Anna Nicole's Death in the news and was curious to see if Wikipedia locked the article. I later looked at the discussion page, and found out that an IP was clearly violating NPA. I was wondering why was the user not warned? Real96 22:09, 8 February 2007 (UTC)
I just warned them.¤~Persian Poet Gal (talk) 22:13, 8 February 2007 (UTC)

(reduce indent) *My fault. Didn't see the discussion page. Per the following message . . . the media has taken a sudden and captivating interest in Wikipedia! Real96 22:14, 8 February 2007 (UTC)

  • I'm thinking of locking the article with a vprotect myself considering the amount of vandalism you, Acalamari, and myself have had to correct.
I'm also thinking of asking for the talk page to be semi-protected.¤~Persian Poet Gal (talk) 22:13, 8 February 2007 (UTC)
  • It's not surprising we're dealing with this vandalism. That's one of the reasons I headed straight for the Anna Nicole Smith page when I heard of her death. Acalamari 22:16, 8 February 2007 (UTC)
  • We're almost reverting to the last edits by each other due to all the vandalism. Acalamari 22:32, 8 February 2007 (UTC)
  • I have to take a break. I'll help remove vandalism and keep the article clean after I've had a rest. I'm sorry if this puts extra work on you. Acalamari 22:39, 8 February 2007 (UTC)
  • It's sad and unfortunate that Anna Nicole Smith died. It's also sad and unfortunate that fools are vandalizing her article. The good thing is that we have both uncovered a load of sleeper accounts. In the last three hours, I am sure that at least ten vandals have materialized. Acalamari 00:30, 9 February 2007 (UTC)
  • Yes it is sad. I wasn't a huge fan of her but any death such as that is a tragedy. It seems the vandalism has cooled off slightly. This however is merely an article about her. I cannot imagine how those related to her are dealing with all this news.¤~Persian Poet Gal (talk) 00:33, 9 February 2007 (UTC)

Press inquiry

Hi Persian Poet gal,

I'm a writer at the LA Times on internet topics. Been watching the Anna Nicole page unfold and reading the history of how you updated and protected the page. Seems like it would make a great story - the work that the frontline troops of wikipedia do.

Would you be available to chat with me at all tomorrow? Wouild love to hear from you how it all went down.

Many thanks,

Richard Rushfield Entertainment Editor 213-473-2519 AIM- richardrushfield —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Richardrushfield (talkcontribs) 22:10, 8 February 2007 (UTC).

  • Though it is an interesting inquiry for privacy reasons I rather not. Good luck on your article.¤~Persian Poet Gal (talk) 22:12, 8 February 2007 (UTC)

Barnstar of Reversion2.png The RickK Anti-Vandalism Barnstar
For all your vandalism-fighting on the Anna Nicole Smith article earlier. Acalamari 03:52, 9 February 2007 (UTC)

You deserve it, especially after all that vandalism you reverted. Plus, you reverted vandalism to your own user and talk pages. Acalamari 03:52, 9 February 2007 (UTC)

  • Thank you very much Acalamari! I appreciate your kindness and the barnstar :)...¤~Persian Poet Gal (talk) 03:53, 9 February 2007 (UTC)
  • You're welcome. Acalamari 03:54, 9 February 2007 (UTC)

Vandalism explanation

Hi there Persian poet gal. Thanks for getting rid of that vandalism on my userpage a month or so back. hahaha.. as I suspected it turned out to be about 3 of my friends who at that point were a bit bored - idiots. One of them then said he vandalised your page when you fixed the vandalism on mine.. sorry about that but yeah it definitely wasn't malicious, as is the case with most incidents of wikipedia vandalism ( i suspect) this was just something done for a cheap kick by someone with too much time on their hands. In any case its awesome to see you doing such good work- keep it up!

Cheers, Kotare 05:54, 9 February 2007 (UTC)

My Proposed Award.

I don't wish to bug you, but as you created a barnstar that was supported (your barnstar is beautiful, I like it a lot), I thought you'd might like to look at my new suggestion of an award. As of this writing, I haven't uploaded the image, as I'm waiting for other users to say whether I should or not. Here it is. Acalamari 19:59, 9 February 2007 (UTC)

  • Thank you. Acalamari 23:36, 9 February 2007 (UTC)
  • One more thing, if you go to the image's own page, I have now listed which barnstars make up my award. Acalamari 00:00, 10 February 2007 (UTC)
  • Even better now, HignInBC said to link to with the stars it's made of. I've done this now. The other stars have been credited. Acalamari 00:31, 10 February 2007 (UTC)

Re. What a Great Day it Has Been ^_^

Indeed. :-) Congratulations in reaching WP:100 in less than 24 hours (which, as of this minute, have past). :-) Kindest regards, Húsönd 23:43, 9 February 2007 (UTC)

Changes to warnings on User talk:Curiouscdngeorge

Hello, I have seen your edits before and wanted your opinion on a user who is changing the warnings on his talkpage. Curiousdngeorge changed all the warnings on his page to look like they are ongoing conversations.

On an edit to JFK, I questioned on its talkpage his edit to JFK's religion which is Roman Catholic. Another editor reversed this change. Today, this user changed it again.

Looking at his talkpage, it appeared to me that he just had conversions. So, I issued him a level one warning. Now, based upon his change of my warning, I now realize he changed all the warnings. He is probably past level four.

In addition to change the warnings, he is changing the headers which made it difficult for me to correctly assess his true warning level. I have advised him not to change my warning and put him on my watchlist. I would be interested in your opinion. Ronbo76 02:00, 10 February 2007 (UTC)

  • I looked extensively throughout his talk page history and it does not seem he was issued warnings that would lead up to a level 4. Blatant vandals who remove serious warnings from their talk page would be more susceptible to being reprimanded. I doubt this user is a vandal. As far as the talk page alteration, he is making what could be considered as unconstructive edits; and as far as his editing pattern it seems like he is committing some stylistic errors, spurring conflicts of interest, and possibly replacing information with original research or unverifiable data. I would recommend to avoid the situation for the time being. If you feel the user is not following the advice placed on his talk page, try submitting a request for comment on him. Hope this helps.¤~Persian Poet Gal (talk) 03:24, 10 February 2007 (UTC)
Yes, your comment does. From his comments on my talkpage and now in my warning, it appears he likes to play word games. Ronbo76 03:29, 10 February 2007 (UTC)

Reguarding F/A-18 page modifications

I am currently adding on a section known as "The Truth about the F/A-18" to this page. It is completly factual information and provides other info on a recent event in the US military. I am sorry if you had any wrong ideas about this modification. -4tunad0

I am not trying to add any unessesary content to wikipedia. I am merely trying to add more informal content to the F/A-18 page. TY! —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 04:29, 10 February 2007 (UTC).

  • I was not the one who deleted that section: see this edit summary. However, the vandalism originally placed by your IP was reverted by myself.¤~Persian Poet Gal (talk) 04:30, 10 February 2007 (UTC)

I have used wikipedia many times for research, yet I am not familiar with how to edit pages. Do I need an acount on wikipedia in order to stop my modifications from being reversed? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 04:35, 10 February 2007 (UTC).

  • Editing through user accounts are always encouraged but not when they are used for vandalism. Consider serious contributions if you want to create an account and not contributions like these. Anyone's contributions can be reverted including my own. Wikipedia editors revert contributions on the grounds of vandalism or unproductive edits.¤~Persian Poet Gal (talk) 04:37, 10 February 2007 (UTC)

The editors of wikipedia seem to have an omnipresence on the web site. I would like to know from the best of your knowledge what they consider to be vandalism. I have been interested in creating new sections to wikipedia. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 04:47, 10 February 2007 (UTC).

Pretty much every edit you made to F/A-18 Hornet Glen 04:48, 10 February 2007 (UTC)
  • He is right Please aim to contribute constructively if you have an interest in the project. At times IP addresses may be shared and the vandalism present on your contribution history may not have been done by you. By the looks of things however, signs point to those being your contributions.¤~Persian Poet Gal (talk) 04:50, 10 February 2007 (UTC)

I posted an article on the f/a-18 page called "the truth" did you read this?

  • Yes I did read the section you posted however there were unfortunately several problems with it. It was not placed in the correct location, it did not maintain a neutral point of view, and it may be considered original research. Remember however, that another editor reverted that contribution, not myself.¤~Persian Poet Gal (talk) 04:57, 10 February 2007 (UTC)

PS, Glen Ha Ha Ha a very logical but inefficient answer.

  • His answer is quite correct and efficient actually. If you want to find out more about what is considered vandalism, see this page.¤~Persian Poet Gal (talk) 04:58, 10 February 2007 (UTC)

I couldn't help but notice neutral point of view. Im sorry, I have created web pages previously with no opinions in them. I seemed to have forgotten about that factor. Thank-you for your help!

Thank you

I just want to thank you for reverting the vandalism on my user page. This is the second time you have done so.--FreeKresge 06:01, 10 February 2007 (UTC)

  • *nods* I was blown away by the support shown in my own RfA; being an admin isn't supposed to be a big deal, but I certainly felt a large amount of validation.
    Plus, there's a certain amount of validation you get from idiots opposing you; you're obviously doing something right if that many people both love and hate your work. ;-) EVula // talk // // 15:46, 10 February 2007 (UTC)
