Copypaste tag[edit]

On December 19 you tagged Alan Kaplinsky as likely copy-pasted from someplace else. My quick search found no evidence to that effect, and you didn't provide a source. Why did you tag it? Huon (talk) 14:56, 3 January 2014 (UTC)

I used the copypaste tag and not the copyvio tag precisely because I could not find a source. I was wary of some of the elements of the article, specifically the list of notable cases and the integration of an unattributed quote unsourced quote in the lead paragraph, that made it likely that the article text was copied from somewhere else. RJaguar3 | u | t 16:54, 3 January 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for the quick reply. The article certainly has some problems (such as WP:OR or WP:SYN), but it didn't look copy-pasted to me, and since you removed the tag, the issue seems resolved. Again, thanks! Huon (talk) 17:21, 3 January 2014 (UTC)

GA review of VRA[edit]

Hello RJaguar3, thanks again for your comments on the Voting Rights Act of 1965 GA review. As it's been about three weeks since the last update, I was wondering if you are still planning on conducting the GA review. I understand if you've been busy, and I'm happy to continue work with you on the review if you'd like to continue it. But if reviewing the article is something you don't think you have the time for, I'd appreciate it if you could let me know and perhaps allow another editor to conduct the review. Either way, thanks for your work thus far. –Prototime (talk · contribs) 02:11, 7 February 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for asking. I now have the five books referenced in the article and have been thoroughly reviewing the article and the cited references. I am currently up through the 1992 amendments, and I should be able to get the article finished this weekend. Thanks again for your patience. RJaguar3 | u | t 13:47, 7 February 2014 (UTC)
That's fantastic! Thanks for all of your hard work. I look forward to your comments. –Prototime (talk · contribs) 16:11, 7 February 2014 (UTC)
Prototime, I've been sick this weekend (when I was planning to go through a major chunk of the article), so the review should be finished next week. Thank you for your patience. RJaguar3 | u | t 01:37, 10 February 2014 (UTC)
No worries, the GA review can wait; feel better soon. –Prototime (talk · contribs) 03:33, 10 February 2014 (UTC)

Hi RJaguar3, thanks again for your fantastic GA review. I'm not sure if you're interested in voting rights- or law-related articles more generally, but if so I would enjoy collaborating with you to work on improving some of them. I've been thinking about taking a stab at Equal Protection Clause, Voter ID laws in the United States, or Felony disenfranchisement sometime soon (in addition to continuing to polish the VRA article), but I have relatively eclectic interests so I'm open to working on other articles in these areas too. Feel free to ping me if you're ever interested in working together. –Prototime (talk · contribs) 05:48, 8 March 2014 (UTC)

Your request for undeletion[edit]

Concerning File:Heroes advertising flyer.jpg[edit]

Hi, RJaguar3, and thank you for your message. As it is stated in the article (Avalon Hill):

In early 1984, on the occasion of the release of third edition RuneQuest, Avalon Hill included in all RuneQuest boxes a single advertising flyer (see image, right) announcing the launch of HEROES

I guess it can be explained, by some way, in the description page of the file... but I don't know how this exactly could be done... Any advice would be most welcome. Kintaro (talk) 08:47, 3 May 2014 (UTC)

@Kintaro: I corrected the DI tag on the file page. The issue still stands that the non-free use rationale on the file page does not explain why usage of the image on Avalon Hill satisfies WP:NFCC#8. RJaguar3 | u | t 13:54, 3 May 2014 (UTC)
And that's all? I guess you think that NFCC#8 is able to be applied to the image... that is? because in my case I simply do not agree with you. The image illustrates the text and thus brings a reference to it. Kintaro (talk) 21:49, 3 May 2014 (UTC)

FAC of VRA[edit]

Hi RJaguar3, thanks again for your thoughtful GA review of Voting Rights Act of 1965. I wanted to let you know that the article is currently a Featured Article Candidate, in case you'd like to give any feedback on its candidacy; the FAC entry is at Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/Voting Rights Act of 1965/archive1. Beyond a good amount of copyediting and polishing, the article isn't too different from when you conducted the GA review, except that some of the text describing the Act's amendments was moved to a child article (Amendments to the Voting Rights Act of 1965) in light of how lengthy the article was. The FAC has been mostly quiet thus far, and given your insight, I would greatly appreciate your feedback on the article's candidacy. Thanks! –Prototime (talk · contribs) 02:52, 11 May 2014 (UTC)

File:Heroes advertising flyer.jpg[edit]

I've declined the speedy deletion for File:Heroes advertising flyer.jpg as the uploader makes some claims on the talk page which may or may not be relevant. If you still feel this image has WP:NFCC issues (I'm not commenting either way), I recommend that you take the discussion to WP:FFD as I feel that the uploader should be given a full discussion. Cheers, TLSuda (talk) 13:20, 11 May 2014 (UTC)

FFD notice[edit]


I just wanted to let you know that I folded four of your nominations in Wikipedia:Files for deletion/2014 July 8 into one multi-nomination entry, (per WP:FFD instructions) so that they can be discussed all the same time, without having to post the same message four times.

Hope that's okay.

Best regards,
Codename Lisa (talk) 19:00, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

Certainly, that's okay. Thank you for doing that. RJaguar3 | u | t 23:30, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

Legends end date issue[edit]

RJaguar3, there's an anon under the IP of, claiming Legends end date was on December 29, 1995, according to LegendsWikia. That definitely can't be it, and I was wondering if you can help so I won't get into a war with the person, who could possibly continue. I tried once and then another. -- (talk) 22:17, 8 November 2014 (UTC)

Hi there![edit]

Of course it's me. I am Grundle2600. I never try to hide the identity of my socks. It's interesting that everyone was OK with the edits from this particular sock until they started to suspect that it was a sock. The only reason I was banned in the first place was to prevent me from adding reliably sourced info that was critical of Obama. Many articles created by my various socks are still in existence, and the content that I added is still in them. I never should have been banned in the first place.

Non-ree images[edit]

Go ahead and delete every news open image on all television stations (including WCBS-TV, KCBS-TV etc.) since they won't visually identify the station and provide critical commentary that the article text alone cannot. Strafidlo (talk) 02:20, 4 January 2015 (UTC)

King v. Burwell[edit]

Hi there. I just thought you should know for future reference that the IP-hopping edit warrior at King v. Burwell has been disrupting Constitutional challenges to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act since at least September 8. The page has been semi-protected a number of times as a result, and they have repeatedly come back and reverted after the semi-prot expired. They were also blocked at one point early on. Based on their geolocation data and edit history I suspect this person is personally involved in Obamacare litigation. --Dr. Fleischman (talk) 06:47, 5 January 2015 (UTC)

About your WP:RFD nomination of Dark Forest[edit]

I went ahead and closed the request you posted for the redirect Dark Forest on WP:RFD. Since you are claiming that there is no primary topic, your request would actually be a move request to move Dark Forest (disambiguation) over Dark Forest per WP:DABNAME. In effect, I have moved the discussion over to Talk:Dark Forest (disambiguation) as a move request. Cheers! Steel1943 (talk) 03:08, 19 February 2015 (UTC)

Superfish --> Komodia[edit]

Hi -- having followed your conversation on the "redirect" page, I was able to read the stuff in ars technica about Komodia. For now, I added a chunk within the Superfish article; I think Komodia needs its own page, but I don't have the Wikipedia chops to write it. I don't know if you have the time or inclination to do so, but I thought I'd write, as I saw you were editing the Superfish page. Best -- Bruiserid (talk) 23:19, 23 February 2015 (UTC)

Bundling of Microsoft Windows--- reliability of as source[edit]

Hello, I would like to discuss my edit on the "Bundling of Microsoft Windows" Wikipedia page. You have expressed doubts about trustworthiness of, which is understandable if you are not Czech.

However, the online magazine has a Czech Wikipedia entry dating to 2004 and I have been able to find english Wikipedia pages that already reference to it (you can just search the English Wikipedia for "" to see for yourself).

Google translator can translate the article so one can understand its meaning and, for instance, appreciate that it contains scanned documents from the refund process.

Therefore, I kindly ask you to reconsider your revert and restore my contribution. -- (talk) 17:28, 6 April 2015 (UTC)

Close of Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Microsoft Spyware[edit]

RJaguar3 and CoffeeWithMarkets:

I procedurally closed Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Microsoft Spyware. I agree with your general premise, and had the existing discussion and related work not already been in-progress I might have recommended deletion redirect-but-keep-the-page-history. If you have any questions about why I did what I did, please ask.

If you think it's time to close the ongoing discussion, I'm sure there are admins and other "uninvolved" experienced editors out there who would be willing to take a look at it and see if it is ripe for closure and if it is, close it. Given that there isn't an overwhelming consensus one way or the other and that I have my own opinion on the matter, it would be improper for me to close it. davidwr/(talk)/(contribs) 04:32, 30 August 2015 (UTC)

Vanderbilt University registered student organization non-discrimination policy[edit]

Hello. I think this should be merged with Vanderbilt University. There is already referenced info about this in the main article, and it seems redundant and unnecessary. Would you agree?Zigzig20s (talk) 03:24, 8 October 2015 (UTC)
