Sara Jean Underwood

You're right, the source provided was rubbish but Jeff Dye did date Sara Jean Underwood. There are many circumstantial pieces of evidence, myspace photos (the couple together in fairly ordinary couple photos) and videos (her goofing watching Superbowl with him), twitter comments (although Underwood no longer maintains a twitter page). The problem is how difficult it is to find a more reputable a source mentioning the relationship given both of them are relatively low profile "celebrities". It is unquestionably true but the way most people enforce WP:BLP most editors will not allow it to be added to the article. There was an editors who dismissed the Howard Stern Show as a good enough source for her relationship with Ryan Seacreat but that was clearly just prejudice or snobbery. Some editors are just determined to undermine and remove any Personal life sections from articles. -- Horkana (talk) 19:46, 12 July 2010 (UTC)

See But it's true!. Verifiability, not truth, is the determining factor for what we can include in an article, especially one on a living person. RJaguar3 | u | t 19:49, 12 July 2010 (UTC)
I'm familiar with "wikitruth". It would seem more appropriate to label this material as "citation needed" and try to gradually improve it as better sources become available. Many editors have an odd interpretation of WP:BLP that gives them license to delete first and not mark things as citation needed even when they are not actually controversial or disputed, which seems counterproductive to improving articles, even going so far as to delete sourced material because Underwood herself speaking to Howard Stern doesn't fit their idea of a good enough source. Perhaps you might be lucky enough to pick a different google search and come up with an appropriate source that I was unable to stumble upon. -- Horkana (talk) 02:11, 13 July 2010 (UTC)
First, I was not involved in that Howard Stern show decision, but based on what I'm hearing from you, I'd be inclined to accept that as a valid source (under WP:SELFPUB). From a quick glance, it seems that whodateswho isn't a very reliable source; maybe if you know more about that website, you could make a better judgment. While all statements should be verifiable, we do have to tread very carefully with biographies of living persons, as there are definitely libel concerns involved when we include unsourced and dubiously-sourced claims.
If you want to find another source, go for it. That's how we improve the verifiability of Wikipedia: through more reliable sources. RJaguar3 | u | t 02:23, 13 July 2010 (UTC)
I tried to find more and better sources. I failed. Was hoping you might give it a try. Your edit does seem reasonable, I guess I was just annoyed at this coming up again, since I had posted it before with a short list of weak sources and it was removed and it annoys me that some editors being overly strict and that another editor in good faith added it again and and there's no easy way for him or you to know about it, the talk page only gives a hint of what you'd learn from trawling through the edit history. Personally I'd have left the whodateswho - a weak source better than no source - but also asked for a better citation by tagging it citation needed. Deleting just seems to be a dead end and things don't get improved. Nevermind, I shouldn't let the flaws in Wikipedia bother me so much but I'd like to enourage you to try and help add better sources to the article if you can. It's a bit more effort but you could get lucky with a google search and not need to delete at all. -- Horkana (talk) 03:02, 13 July 2010 (UTC)

Hidden Temple

Any chance you could find the original air dates for some of the episodes? Some of the gameplay devices could be sourced to individual episodes, ideally from anything Olmec said. Ten Pound Hammer, his otters and a clue-bat • (Many ottersOne batOne hammer) 03:17, 13 August 2010 (UTC)

As far as I know, here are the sources I can find:
  1. Ryan Rinkerman has airdates for some episodes ("Sir Lawrence of Arabia's Headdress," September 11, 1993; "The Golden Jaguar of Atahualpa," September 12, 1993; "The Code Book of Mata Hari," September 25, 1993; "The Lucky Pig of Amelia Earhart," October 2, 1993; "The Mask of Shaka Zulu," October 3, 1993; all from Rinkerman, who claims that they have original commericals, which, if we're lucky, will have movie trailers or other dated material to corroborate the given dates). These dates also appear to come from User:HairMetalLives (Talk:Legends_of_the_Hidden_Temple#Premiere_Date_of_September_11,_1993_is_Correct), who also adds "The Trojan Horseshoe," as September 26, 1993, claiming that part of an ESPN Sunday Night Baseball game was on the same tape. Jon Plesz also has the complete collection, and his airdates match, except for "Mask," which he claims aired October 9 (probably a typo).
  2. There are two studio master copies with slate floating around ("The War fan of the Forty-seven Ronin," July 11, 1995, taped February 18, 1995; "The Lion-Slashed Jacket of Sacajawea," June 16, 1995, taped February 24, 1995, both taken from Rinkerman)
  3. I seem to recall one of the sources talked about contestants' appearances in an episode to air. Scarberry doesn't mention when the featured contestants' episodes would be airing. Flood, however, mentions that Tabitha's appearance on Legends taped in May 1994 and aired July 27, 1994. Looking at the nicklegends episodes summaries, I believe that the episode in question is 2x07 ("The Diary of Dr. Livingstone"). This is really strange, as the other source on the second season has taping occurring from March to April, with tryouts in February, and this episode has a low production number for being such a late taping.

Regardless, I don't think original airdates are necessary with this type of show. To use primary sources, we have to have enough information given identifying a particular episode so that someone else can obtain it and check for themselves. Here, the episode titles are uniquely identifying enough. For other shows without distinct titles, information like celebrities appearing, names of contestants, names of teams participating, as well as original air date and production number can serve to uniquely identify one episode. There's no problem with citing a particular episode, but stuff like "once on The Joker's Wild, there was a 'Road Signs' category that caused problems for the two contestants involved" is (in addition to being remarkably trivial) hard to verify.

Speedy deletion nomination of Hossam taha musician

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Hossam taha musician 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 a person or group of people, 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, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for biographies. You may also wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles – see the Article Wizard.

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 - if no such tag exists then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hangon tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page 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 page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you.

Pufc

Hi, I noticed that a tag that you added here is causing a ParserFunction error. You can see this by checking {{Pufc|1=Console gameboxes.jpg|date=2011 January 6}} which produces Error: Invalid time. Interestingly, this is fixed by swapping the date format to {{Pufc|1=Console gameboxes.jpg|date=6 January 2011}} which produces the desired result. I will see if I can fix the problem at the source, Template:Pufc, and let you know. You can respond here, since my IP page is shared. 134.253.26.11 (talk) 16:16, 7 January 2011 (UTC)

I was copying the code from Template:Puf, so I think the problem must lie there with the code it generates. (Also, in case it helps, I use Twinkle to place the puf template, but I have to manually add the pufc template using the code generated by the puf template.) RJaguar3 | u | t 17:40, 7 January 2011 (UTC)
Interesting. As far as I can see, then banner in Template:Puf does have the date in "day month year" format, rather than the reverse, which is the issue. There is a template which can handle "year month day", which is Template:date, but it is a bit heavy-handed in terms of the complexity of the code. Better would be if the "{{#time" parserfunction was able to handle this format. To see the core issue, try {{#time: j M Y|January 6, 2011}} vs. {{#time: j M Y|6 January 2011}} vs. {{#time: j M Y|2011 January 6}}. The last one fails, but the other two are fine. 134.253.26.12 (talk) 22:35, 7 January 2011 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of my entry entitled DIVISION ALGORITHM POLYNOMIALS.

Dear Sir/Madam, I have been informed that the above entry is beyond the scope of the Wikipedia. The equations, I must admit are rather hefty, but on the other hand the mathematics is essentially elementary without any approximations, although quite involved in the derivation. This work appears to be entirely new and unknown to the mathematical establishment at this time so that no immediate verification is possible. I am respectfully appealing to Wikipedia not to delete my entry until at least it has been read by someone out there and worked out and that Wikipedia has been informed of their findings. WPGS25041941 (talk) 14:12, 28 January 2011 (UTC)

First, I would like to thank you for the effort you put in into writing that article. However, Wikipedia is not the first place to go when you've come up with something novel. Our policy on WP:No original research states that our sole job is to write articles based on what other reliable sources have written, not to advance a new theory not published elsewhere. For an example of what I refer to, read the polynomial long division article. Although Wikipedia is probably not the right place for your article, you may want to try Wikiversity, a free wiki host, or even submitting to a mathematical journal. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks, RJaguar3 | u | t 17:17, 28 January 2011 (UTC)

Concerning the proposed deletion of my entry DIVISION ALGORITHM POLYNOMIALS.

Dear Sir/Madam,

As the author [and sole originator to the best of my knowledge] of the above, I have revised my opinion and come to the same view point as Wikpedia, that the research in the proposed entry has not yet reached a mature stage and as yet there is no established usefuness. Neither has the work been verified in the Wikipedian sense of the word. The effort I used in producing my contribution to Wikipedia has by no means been wasted, for I have been able to improve the work for inclusion elsewhere and what is more to the point, have acquired a greater proficiency in computing, to which I am still very new. My computer was only connected to the Internet in 2010 October 10th at 10 UTC. By " verifiable " you surely mean [immediately] verifiable. That is, reference has been made by Wikipedia to an authority where the work had been subjected to a rigorous analysis and was then authenticated by that citation.

However, many thanks for directing me to alternative places where the research can be peer-reviewed and developed into something of practical utility. This I have done.

Yours Sincerely,

W. P. G. Shaw.

Purpose of the contribution " DIVISION ALGORITHM POLYNOMIALS " which is scheduled for deletion.

Dear RJaguar3,

              There is a quote by the eminent German mathematican G.F.B. Riemann [1822 - 1866] in which he asserts that 

the irregular distribution of the primes [prime numbers] is " a mystery into which the [human] mind would never penetrate. "

       He was absolutely right in that he was presumably working

in the decimal system. However in the more fundamental binary system, matters look entirely different. He was in my view, mistaken in believing that the erraticity of the primes is unexplainable. This perplexity was a challenge and in the two contributions to Wikiversity: [the result of many an hour pondering the matter]

" Polynomial Quotient Equations " - the above entry under another name and
" Matrices of Remainders " I think the matter might now be virtually resolved 

except for some straight forward equation solving. Plotting the complex zeros duly labelled, computing their amplitudes and finding their significance seems to be all that remains to be done. To the best of my knowledge this has not happened, for the above equations had not been derived hitherto.

       My very limited interest in maths was in solving 

an allegedly unsolvable problem, but I feel that I have done my part and should leave persuance of matters to others.

       In view of the above, in another forum, 

I cited an equation differentiated from Riemann's Zeta Function [RZF] in that unlike the RZF, all of the even terms are absent - only uneven integers occur. I never imagined that my innocent comment would attact such vehement personal abuse from the Establishment. In the process, I discovered far more about sociological issues of human nature and politics than about logical discussion for what there was of it, which in any case could have been discovered years ago.WPGS25041941 (talk) 19:22, 8 February 2011 (UTC)

Legends of the Hidden Temple

Hi. Just letting you know I failed the article here. If you want to put it up for nomination again, you should probably address the concerns I placed in the review. GamerPro64 (talk) 01:40, 1 March 2011 (UTC)

It'll just be easier to explain on your talk page. Now, throughout the article, it has some line sentence paragraphs, already a no-no. Also, for the episodes, please look at Glee (TV series) as an example. Also for the Main Game section, references should be used in case you may be bull-shitting how the show is played (I've seen the show and I know you're not but other people might not). As for reviews, you could probably reformat it and it'll look more improved so it doesn't need anymore stuff in it. GamerPro64 (talk) 02:45, 1 March 2011 (UTC)
I've taken a look at the good article criteria, and after looking at them, I must say that I believe you have misapplied the good article criteria. See WP:GACN. First, I will concede that the layout could be improved, especially with regards to short paragraphs, so I'll get to work on that. Second, GAC #2b only requires that the article "provides in-line citations from reliable sources for direct quotations, statistics, published opinion, counter-intuitive or controversial statements that are challenged or likely to be challenged, and contentious material relating to living persons," and most of the plot summary statements do not seem to fall into this category. BSing statements can be done with any source (as I was somewhat guilty of three years back on Masters of the Maze, when I added my original interpretation of an article [I got better, and I corrected my statements; I nevertheless apologize for that edit, performed with less judgment than I have now]), and, as this is a work of fiction, the work itself is a perfectly valid self-published source for statements about itself that do not require original research to formulate (that is, statements that are obvious to anyone who reads/watches the show). In either case, for the reasons above the lack of sources in the plot summary is simply not a grounds for failing a GAN, in my opinion. I think your suggestion on the reviews section is a good one, and I will go ahead and change that.
So, are the layout problems the justification for a quick fail? If so, would you be prejudiced to my renomination of the article once those are fixed? Again, thanks for your efforts in reviewing the article; it took a bit of discussion, but now I know what needs to be fixed. RJaguar3 | u | t 03:02, 1 March 2011 (UTC)
Well, I feel like the article is sort of like this. However, I won't be prejudice if you renomiate it again. However, a more experianced editor may fail it as well if it still doesn't fare well. GamerPro64 (talk) 03:16, 1 March 2011 (UTC)

GRAPPLE X 14:10, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for taking the time to review the article. I really appreciate someone who knows nothing about the show reviewing it (since it helps make the article more accessible to Wikipedia's audience and eliminates text that assumes that the reader has already seen the show [I ended up removing a reference to Olmec in the lead before the character was even mentioned]). I will definitely try to find more sources about the production of the show. I couldn't find anything about the conception of the show (which, as a fan, I would really like to know more above). There used to be a layouts section, but it was moved to a separate article and then deleted due to being unsourced; although the episodes themselves can serve as sources, I feel that collecting the various episodes into patterns of layouts would violate WP:SYNTH (this is also why I shied away from mentioning the distinction in the caption to the diagram). I will definitely consider adding more information about the set and the music. I don't want to go overboard and simply mirror the ending credits, but I do agree that it would definitely help to add some more credits to the infobox (as soon as I figure out how to do that). I will definitely get to work on this. RJaguar3 | u | t 20:25, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

2011 GAN elimination drive results.png

On behalf of User:Wizardman and myself, we would like to take the time and thank you for your contributions made as part of the March 2011 Good articles backlog elimination drive. Awards and barnstars will go out shortly for those who have reviewed a certain number of articles.

During the backlog drive, in the month of March 2011,

  • 522 GA nominations were undertaken.
  • 423 GA nominations passed.
  • 72 GA nominations failed.
  • 27 GA nominations were on hold.

We started the GA backlog elimination drive with 378 GA nominations remaining, with 291 that were not reviewed at all. By 2:00, April 1, 2011, the backlog was at 171 GA nominations, with 100 that were left unreviewed.

At the start of the drive, the oldest unreviewed GA nomination was 101 days (Andrei Kirilenko (politician), at 20 November 2010, reviewed and passed 1 March 2011); at the end of the drive the oldest unreviewed GA nomination was 39 days (Gery Chico, at 24 February 2011, still yet to be reviewed as of this posting).

While we did not achieve the objective of getting the backlog of outstanding GA nominations down to below 50, we reduced the GA backlog by over half. The GA reviews also seemed to be of a higher quality and have consistently led, to say the least, to marginal improvements to those articles (although there were significant improvements to many, even on the some of the nominations that were failed).

If you would like to comment on the drive itself and maybe even make suggestions on how to improve the next one, please make a comment at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Good articles/GAN backlog elimination drives/March 2011#Feedback. Another GA backlog elimination drive is being planned for later this year, tentatively for September or October 2011. Also, if you have any comments or remarks on how to improve the Good article process in general, Wikipedia:WikiProject Good articles can always use some feedback at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Good articles.

Again, on behalf of User:Wizardman and myself, thank you for making the March 2011 GA backlog elimination drive a success.

Please see WP:EL for general info about external links, which begins to form the basis of my decision. I removed the link because I determined that it is unencyclopedic for the following reasons:
  1. It appears to be a fansite, not written by a reliable authority (compare the site to Inside Social Games, for example), and it is not by a recognized expert on YoVille (Criterion #11).
  2. It appears to primarily promote some kind of product.
  3. It could easily be replaced by a primary source about the actual system requirements from an official Zynga website or forum post authored by a Zynga representative.
  4. The system requirements are not discussed in the article, making the link tangential.
Thanks, though, for taking the time to ask my opinion. RJaguar3 | u | t 23:10, 9 May 2011 (UTC)

Also it's not a fan site from what I can tell. Again, thank you for clarifying your position. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.46.59.131 (talk) 19:45, 10 May 2011 (UTC)

Nomination of Jeopardy! international tournaments for deletion

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Jeopardy! international tournaments is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Jeopardy! international tournaments until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on good quality evidence, and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion template from the top of the article. Ѕōŧŧōľäċqǔä (talk) 15:32, 29 May 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Empires & Allies

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Empires & Allies 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 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, contest the deletion by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion," which appears inside of the speedy deletion ({{db-...}}) tag (if no such tag exists, the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate). Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page 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 page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. TransporterMan (TALK) 02:12, 1 June 2011 (UTC)

Reverted, seeing as you're a regular, but please add reliable sources as soon as possible, taking WP:CRYSTAL into consideration. Regards, TransporterMan (TALK) 02:15, 1 June 2011 (UTC)
First, while I do appreciate the deference you have given me, I do think that is contrary to policy; whether a page meets CSD depends on the contents of the page (and can be bolstered by the subject of the article as well), not on the creator. Second, I believe that Inside Social Games is a reliable source (although you can raise the issue at WP:RSN). Thirdly, it appears to be me that the article makes, in addition to a claim of notability with the cited source, a clear claim of significance, being a video game by a notable company. Thus, I don't think A7 applies, and I commend you for re-evaluating your decision. It might still have been a bit too early to create the article, but I will add sources as they (should) come out tomorrow, rendering this moot, hopefully. Thanks, RJaguar3 | u | t 02:21, 1 June 2011 (UTC)

R Jay Gabany

Subsequent to your successful nomination of R Jay Gabany for speedy deletion on the grounds that notability had not been established, perhaps you would like to review of R. Jay GaBany. I think the subject might be notable, but I'm a bit concerned that the article creator's name is the same as the subject of the article. TheMadBaron (talk) 08:59, 8 October 2011 (UTC)

First, although I don't remember the speedy deletion (which appears to have been three years ago), the article looks very good. Notability and significance are clearly established. With regards to the creator, I don't see anything wrong with his (or her) editing of the article; however, it might be good to remind this user of WP:COI (in a non-WP:BITEy way). RJaguar3 | u | t 16:42, 8 October 2011 (UTC)
Thanks. I hasdn't appreciated that the speedy d was so long ago! I agree that the article is good, and I don't know for sure that the author is the subject, so I'll probably let the matter rest. Maybe somebody should mention WP:COI to the user, but it won't be me. TheMadBaron (talk) 17:00, 8 October 2011 (UTC)
And I see that you already have! TheMadBaron (talk) 17:03, 8 October 2011 (UTC)

Zynga Poker

I saw you did a couple of redirects/renames on an article I created, Zynga Poker. I was wondering if you would consider undoing the renames as I do not feel they were necessary. The common name for the game is Zynga Poker, which is why I originally named it as such. Since the current website and logo indicate this as the common name, would you consider taking this into consideration? I look forward to hearing your thoughts on this.

JovanWelks (talk) 22:33, 23 October 2011 (UTC)

You do have a point, and your proposed edit is clearly constructive. When I ultimately decided to move the article (which was not an easy decision), it was based on my consideration of how the official name reads to sources like AppData and Inside Social Games. Here are the usages I could find:
  • Inside Social Games October 2011 list of the "top 25 Facebook games by DAU" lists "Texas HoldEm Poker" as the fourth-ranked game. [2]
  • An October 11, 2011 Los Angeles Times article about Zynga refers to its "popular Texas HoldEm poker game" without using the title "Zynga Poker" [3]
  • AllThingsD.com uses "Texas HoldEm Poker": "In 2007, [Zynga] launched Texas HoldEm Poker." [4]
  • Business Insider uses "Texas HoldEm Poker", probably following AppData/Inside Social Games: "[Zynga's] next most popular game is now Texas Hold 'Em Poker" [5]
  • Times of India used "Zynga Poker", viz. "Today Facebook and Zynga Poker have made [poker] extremely popular." [6]
  • AOL's games.com uses "Zynga Poker"; see [7].
  • In a PCWorld article on a patent infringement suit against Zynga, the game is listed as "Zynga Poker" [8]
  • TechCrunch: "CityVille launched on Google+ two weeks ago, joining Zynga Poker." [9]
Also, I'm not familiar with the exact details, but I think the Facebook version is still officially titled Texas HoldEm Poker, while the other versions (like on mobile phones and on Google+ [see [10]]) use the title Zynga Poker. Zynga's official forums place all discussions in a forum titled Zynga Poker, but this contains discussions all versions of the game on all platforms. Zynga's fan page on Facebook for the Facebook game uses the title "Texas Hold'Em Poker." [11]
Regardless, I do think that your argument has merit, and that it's definitely not a clear issue. I would suggest starting a discussion on the talk page and perhaps listing an WP:RFC about the page title. Thanks for your message and continued efforts in improving Wikipedia's articles about Zynga. RJaguar3 | u | t 23:54, 23 October 2011 (UTC)
Thank you for your suggestion. I have started a discussion on Talk:Texas HoldEm Poker (Zynga game) and look forward to the input.

Zynga

Hey, sorry if it seemed unexplained, that's my fault for not using an edit summary. :) I rolled them back because the user added copious links to the same blog (fusible.com) to a series of articles unrelated to the blog's main topic (domain names) and the name of the account is the same as the company that owns fusible.com. I didn't see that they added other references not to that blog, so my bad. Thanks for dropping me a note, I appreciate it! Steven Walling • talk 23:45, 11 December 2011 (UTC)

I don't agree with revert

I don't agree with this revert: [12] because I mentioned all details, and the email is valid, it can easily be checked, just ask Dell customer service. Further, self-publishing is not something unheard of: the other Dell customer that got refunded in Belgium was also self-published, it was a blog he wrote himself. For all we know it could be just a hoax, just as well as mine. At least I quoted the exact email, with reference numbers, unlike him. I can and will write a blog entry about this, of course, but that's still self-published. So, should I write a blog entry and then it's OK? I am confused. Just because that "dell refund win" story was widely circulated doesn't mean it's less more more true then mine. In fact, as I have stated, it is less supported by actual Dell reference numbers.— Preceding unsigned comment added by Msoos (talkcontribs) 16:46, 30 July 2012 (UTC)

It's still doesn't change that the pastebin fails WP:V and WP:SELFPUB. If you think that the other Dell refund stories fail Wikipedia's sourcing policies, please feel free to let me know and I will take a look and, if necessary, remove them. RJaguar3 | u | t 16:58, 30 July 2012 (UTC)

Hello RJaguar3, I noticed that you've previously made some edits to the Center for Copyright Information article. I'm currently working on behalf of the CCI to improve the article and, due to my COI, I posted a message on Talk:CCI previously about my proposed changes. This led to quite a bit of feedback from a few editors. I've now addressed that feedback, but the main editor involved has indicated that he's busy currently, and asked that I reach out to others.

I'm wondering if you might be willing to take a look at the discussion at Talk:CCI and the updated draft in my userspace and, if things look okay, go ahead and move my draft over? Thanks! ChrisPond (Talk · COI) 13:24, 10 July 2013 (UTC)
