Cerritos map[edit]

I uploaded a map at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Cerritos_in_LA_County_map.png But I haven't used one those tables in a long time. Mackerm 20:52, 22 March 2006 (UTC)

California WikiProjects[edit]

As a California Wikipedian, you may be interested in the California WikiProject (and/or one of its 'daughter' Wikiprojects on Southern California, Santa Barbara County, California State Highways and California County Routes). Please take a look at the WikiProject to see if there is anything that interests you. If you have any comments or questions, feel free to contact me. If enough people express an interest, it would also be very easy to create additional daughter WikiProjects, such as a Northern California WikiProject or a California Politics WikiProject.

It has also more than seven months since the 2nd Los Angeles area Wikipedia meetup ([ 26 September]] 2005), so it is time for another one. There have also been California meetups in San Diego (18 October 2005) and a very small one in Santa Barbara (8 April 2006. It's also about time that the Bay Area gets its first Meetup if anyone is willing to organize it. BlankVerse 06:08, 28 May 2006 (UTC)

Cerritos[edit]

Hey AManSac! Thanxs for the message. It didn't take that long to reference the Cerritos page. I'll get on labeling the notes. Have fun editing! =) Jumping cheese Contact 07:42, 29 July 2006 (UTC)

re: user:Publicdefender99: As long as they only delete that section once every couple of days, and every other editor of the page quickly restores the information, then it's probably best just for us to remain vigilant until after the election.
re: user:Banana Republic: I've deleted the same section because I don't think that it belongs. As a newly registered user, they may be one of the anon IPs that have restored that section. On the other hand, their other edits so far have looked reasonable. I would say the next step would be approach them on their talk page and suggest that they join the discussion on that section at Talk:Cerritos, California#City Image. BlankVerse 06:53, 8 October 2006 (UTC)
You might want to take a look at some of the articles at Wikipedia:WikiProject Cities#Wikipedia featured articles. There are already two California cities that have achived FA status, San Francisco, California and San Jose, California. It would be nice to see a city from Southern California also achive FA status. BlankVerse 07:50, 8 October 2006 (UTC)
As I suggested at talk:Cerritos, California#City Image, there are a couple of things that are salvagable from that section, but it needs to be drastically pared down and renamed. Doing that, instead of a strait deletion is probably the best way to go. BlankVerse 08:06, 8 October 2006 (UTC)

Cerritos Library[edit]

Sorry...the only pictures of the Cerritos Library I have also have people blocking the view. I usually surf the Internet and dig up some pic, then add some valid license to it. =D Jumping cheese Contact 06:59, 26 September 2006 (UTC)

Cerritos Millennium Library[edit]

WOW! Great job in creating the perfect page in only one edit! Here's a well deserved barnstar:

I hereby award AManSac for his or her tireless work in creating the extensive and detailed Cerritos Millennium Library page in only one edit! ^_^ Jumping cheese Contact 22:49, 3 October 2006 (UTC)


Keep up the good work! Jumping cheese Contact 22:49, 3 October 2006 (UTC)

Thanxs for the message. I hate to see good work go unnoticed, so I make sure to award barnstars to deserving Wikipedians. I hope to see more of your work on the Cerritos pages. =D Jumping cheese Contact 02:25, 5 October 2006 (UTC)

Thanxs![edit]

Thank you for the words of motivation! I rarely get those now...but the focus should be on you. You've done more to the Cerritos pages then I have even begun to do. Keep at it! =) Jumping cheese Contact 02:05, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

Image:Cerritos Air Disaster.jpg[edit]

Hey AManSac! Should the pic of the air disaster be placed in the main Cerritos page? I believe that it's more than a significant tragedy in Cerritos and deserves a pic on the the page. I'll move the other pics around so that there will be room for the air disaster pic if you decide to add it.
Oh...by the way, the copyright license for the image is no longer valid, so please add the source or another license (like the valid ones on all the rest the pics you uploaded). Anyways, have fun editing! =D Jumping cheese Contact 07:39, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

That was a quick reply. Thanxs for adding the valid license (I learned the hard way when half of the pics I uploaded got deleted). I see it can fit at the end of history, if the fountain pic is moved down. I'll give it a try. =) Jumping cheese Contact 07:49, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

Categories[edit]

I see you're ading Category:Cities in California to many cities. Howevre it isn't necessary to add it to articles that are already in Category:Cities in Los Angeles County. Needless to say, every city in L.A. County is in California. Per Wikipedia:categorization, articles shoulnd't be in both a parent and child category. But thanks for the effort to improve Wikipedia! Cheers, -Will Beback 20:55, 26 October 2006 (UTC)

PS Good work with Category:Cerritos, California, it was overdue. -Will Beback 21:02, 26 October 2006 (UTC)
I've reverted the improper categorizations. No offense, they just didn't follow the method we use for categorization. -Will Beback 21:08, 26 October 2006 (UTC)
Placing both a city article and a city category in the same county category isn't ideal, but it is commonly done. -Will Beback 21:45, 26 October 2006 (UTC)

User talk...[edit]

I've deleted your user talk per your request. ---J.S (T/C) 21:56, 12 December 2006 (UTC)

Hey![edit]

You changed your user name?!? I got kind of confused, but I figured it out after the comment by the admin. Nice new user name...but why the change? =D Jumping cheese Cont@ct 08:28, 20 January 2007 (UTC)

Sorry about the late reply...I kind of forgot. ;)
Anyways, I never noticed that your original user name was obscene, until you pointed it out. I'm happy to hear that you're considering becoming an admin in the future. That's a huge responsibility, but I believe you can handle it. Becoming an admin is a thankless and grueling job, so make sure that you're willing to take anything before you apply! =) Jumping cheese Cont@ct 05:48, 29 January 2007 (UTC)


Deletion debate on ZIP codes[edit]

An {{afd}} tag has been placed on List of 56 ZIP codes and many other pages, requesting that they be deleted from Wikipedia. All Wikipedians can join the debate at Articles for deletion, where articles asserted to be inappropriate to Wikipedia are discussed. You are encouraged to submit your opinion, and remember that Articles for Deletion debates are not a vote. Please do not remove the deletion tag yourself, but don't feel inhibited from editing the article, particularly if doing so makes it clear that it is a useful contribution to an encyclopaedia. On behalf of Snowolf, my owner, Snowbot 16:18, 30 April 2007 (UTC)

Hey...[edit]

Can you do me a huge favor?!? Image:Cerritos Library.jpg is probably gonna be deleted soon, since I definitely can't claim that a free replacement cannot be taken. If you live next to the library and it isn't too much of a hassle, can you please take a snapshot of the library? The Cerritos Millennium Library page will really suck without a pic at the top. If you don't have the time, I understand. But I'll really appreciate if you do decide to take a free pic. =) Jumping cheese Cont@ct 19:36, 5 June 2007 (UTC)


Whitney HS[edit]

Whitney HS in ABCUSD has Grades 7-12, so it is different from the *zoned* high schools. Therefore it gets its own heading. WhisperToMe 04:36, 5 July 2007 (UTC)

Is there not a note about 30 brands on the auto square website?

Wikipedia:Wikipedia Loves Art[edit]

First off, I apologize for the spam. You are receiving this message because you have indicated that you are in Southern California or interested in Southern California topics (either via category or WikiProject).

I would like to invite you to the Los Angeles edition of Wikipedia:Wikipedia Loves Art, a photography scavenger hunt to be held at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) on Saturday, February 28, 2009, from 1:00 to 7:00 PM. All photos are intended for use in Wikipedia articles or on Wikimedia Commons. There will be a prize available for the person who gets the most photos on the list.

If you don't like art, why not come just to meet your fellow Wikipedians. Apparently, we haven't had a meetup in this area since June 2006!

If you are interested in attending, please add your name to Wikipedia:Wikipedia Loves Art#Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Please make a note if you are traveling to the area (train or plane) and need transportation, which can probably be arranged via carpool, but we need time to coordinate. Lodging is as of right now out of scope, but we could discuss that if enough people are interested.

Thank you and I hope to see you there! howcheng {chat} 00:19, 10 January 2009 (UTC)

File:Los Angeles County flag.gif and various LA articles[edit]

I'm removing this image from the various articles it is on where you added the image as a 23 pixel icon. Per WP:NFCC #8, #3a, and #10c the use of the item in this way is not acceptable. Please do not restore the image. If you have questions, ask. Thank you, --Hammersoft (talk) 20:41, 2 August 2011 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Wikipedia Loves Libraries[edit]

Nice suggestion, why don't you create a starter page with your library at Wikipedia:Meetup/LA/5? Also, you can share this with other SoCal wikimeet folks at the Wikipedia_talk:Meetup/LA/4 discussion page.--Pharos (talk) 11:41, 9 August 2011 (UTC)

It's a long drive for me, but it might be worthwhile! Sincerely, GeorgeLouis (talk) 18:55, 19 August 2011 (UTC)
President Rhapsody, please keep me posted on this possible conference. I work in Cerritos and, depending on the time of day, might stop by for a bit. Thanks for spearheading this. 72Dino (talk) 17:38, 30 August 2011 (UTC)
Have you seen Wikipedia talk:Wikipedia Loves Libraries#South Bay/West Los Angeles? I'm not sure how advanced your Cerritos plans are, but perhaps it would make sense to merge these two events, since User:Jsmog works at the Inglewood Public Library and should be able to book that space more easily.--Pharos (talk) 05:14, 6 September 2011 (UTC)
Since the Cerritos project doesn't seem to be active (correct me if I'm wrong here), I guess I am going to remove the listing from WP:WLL, so people can focus on the other LA-area event(s): User talk:Jsmog#Wikipedia:Wikipedia Loves Libraries. Hope you can join the Inglewood one and the one at the Reagan Library!--Pharos (talk) 19:42, 4 October 2011 (UTC)

First, we have a Valentine's Day edit-a-thon appropriately named Redondo Loves Wikipedia, which will take place at the Redondo Beach Public Library from 10am to 1pm on Saturday, February 14.

Third, we have an Unforgetting LA event put on by East of Borneo in collaboration with the Getty Research Institute. Come help improve Wikipedia's coverage of LA design and architecture, and have an awesome free day at the museum -- parking will be validated for edit-a-thon participants! If you'd like to use particular books from GRI's great collection, be sure to email before 2/13 (instructions at event page).

And be sure to check out our main meetup page, because we already have three SoCal events scheduled for early March!

American Roman Catholics[edit]

Please stop and discuss. I am finding problems with addition of this category to most of the articles you've chosen. Elizium23 (talk) 23:35, 19 August 2015 (UTC) Please read and understand WP:EGRS. Just because someone is raised Catholic does not mean we categorize them thus. Also, see WP:DIFFUSE. If someone is already in a child category they do not also get added to the (grand)parent.

STOP adding categories in violation of WP:DIFFUSE. Elizium23 (talk) 03:22, 19 September 2015 (UTC)

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.

Wik-Ed Women Session #5
We Can Edit.jpg

Dear fellow Wikipedian,

I would like to personally invite you to the March edition of the Wik-Ed Women meetup, which will take place on March 15, from 6-10 in the evening. It will occur at Los Angeles Contemporary Archive, 2245 E Washington Blvd, Los Angeles, California 90021 (downtown LA -- map). The building has a pink top with old signage for American Accessories, Inc. dba Princess Accessories (Photos [PDF]). There is on-site parking in the back, which also has an entrance. If you cannot attend in person, you are more than willing to work remotely, as we appreciate all help that you can provide. Finally, here is a link to the Facebook event, in case you want to invite friends, as we are always looking for new editors to help expand coverage of women on Wikipedia!

I hope to see you there! Cosmicphantom (talk) - via MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 05:55, 15 March 2016 (UTC)
