Hey Mr. Rmcsamson. Can you please cite your citation on where you got the info that Xavier is one of the few basic institutions that has received the highest accreditation? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:48, 28 August 2008 (UTC)

Hello, Rmcsamson, Welcome to Wikipedia!
I hope you like working here and want to continue. If you need help on how to name new articles, look at Naming Conventions, and for help on formatting the pages visit the Manual of Style. If you need general help, look at Help and the FAQ, and if you can't find your answer there, check the Village pump (for Wikipedia related questions) or the Reference Desk (for general questions). There's still more help at the Tutorial and the Policy Library. Also, don't forget to visit the Community Portal — and if you have any more questions after that, feel free to post them on my New-Users' Talk Page.

"Edited by Wikipedia"[edit]

Why do you keep saying "Edited by Wikipedia" or "Revised by Wikipedia" in your edit summaries? It's not necessary. Obviously all the edits to articles are by Wikipedia. TheCoffee 15:20, 30 May 2005 (UTC)

re: UP[edit]

Hi, thank you very much for being generous in editing the entry on U.P. But I would like to point out that the 70,000 UPCAT examinees mark is not baseless and unsubstantiated. The Inquirer has reported on it early last week. And I asked the President of U.P. (a former professor of mine). And she also said that more than 70,000 examinees took the UPCAT this year. I would appreciate if you will not allow your Ateneo bias to get in the way. The 70,000 mark is therefore not uncited and baseless. We are not inflating figures here. 70,394 examinees this year is a fact.

Congratulations for your many wonderful contributions to Wikipedia. Thanks for your kindness and consideration. - 7258 05:34, 12 August 2006 (UTC)

70,000 HS seniors take UP entrance test By DJ Yap Inquirer Last updated 03:31am (Mla time) 08/06/2006

Published on page A18 of the August 6, 2006 issue of the Philippine Daily Inquirer

IT was hard to tell who was more nervous: the high school seniors taking the entrance exam to the University of the Philippines, or the parents waiting for them at the gates.

One woman spent hours praying the rosary for her daughter to perform well. A man tutored his daughter for several nights using review books borrowed from friends.

A candidate for valedictorian was even willing to trade her medal for a passing grade.

Half of more than 70,000 students flocked to UP campuses and test centers nationwide yesterday to take the UP College Admission Test (UPCAT), the penultimate exam that would decide whether or not they make it to arguably the best university in the country.

The grueling five-hour test covering Mathematics, Science, language proficiency and reading comprehension is administered in two batches (yesterday and today), and divided into morning and afternoon shifts.

Though official figures were not immediately available from the Admissions Office, UP president Emerlinda Roman said this year’s batch may be the biggest number of UPCAT examinees ever.

As of the latest count last Friday, the applicants numbered 70,394, according to professor Gerald Franco, assistant director for test administration.“If there’s not much disparity between the number of applications and the actual test takers, then this may be the highest number,” Roman said.

“To my recollection, the number of applicants in the last six years just hovers between 64,000 and 66,000,” she added.

As early as 5 a.m., many students began gathering around the test centers in clumps. Some of them were chatting with classmates while others were quietly conversing with their parents.

A few were taking last-minute peeks into review booklets and modules.

At a time when tuition rates are rising in many private colleges, the UPCAT represents, for many people, a ticket to excellent but cheap schooling.

Regarding the Green Archers section[edit]

That content was moved to the De La Salle Green Archers article where it is more appropriate. -- Mithril Cloud 04:46, 21 August 2006 (UTC)

fidel v. ramos[edit]

Donmar who obviously is an staunch supporter of FVR delected my additions under Criticism, including the references I put down. His loooong enumeration of medals, awards, etc. is the one that makes the article too long, yet he complains that my additions make the article too long. UNFAIR!

Merry Christmas.[edit]

In the spirit of the Reason for the season, may I take privilege of offering a simple greeting: Merry Christmas. :) { PMGOMEZ } 16:12, 24 December 2006 (UTC)

Ateneo logotype[edit]

I don't get it. The logotype of the official basketball team, seen on international TV, shouldn't be added on the article. Can you explain? --Howard the Duck 08:26, 25 January 2007 (UTC)

There's no "official" logotype. "Blue Eagles" is a general monicker for Ateneo sports teams, with specialized names for other teams such as "Blue Booters" for football. There are variations of how the name "Ateneo" is rendered on different jerseys and athletic materials, accross different units of the university. There's no settled and official "Ateneo logotype." How it is used in the one instance you cite does not establish an "official" logotype. Nor is the fact that this is seen on national and international TV of any relevance, since this does not make anything "official." It will be prudent to know, however, that there are ongoing attempts to settle on a proper "Ateneo logotype" which will be used across the university for all Ateneo communications materials and collaterals.Rmcsamson 08:34, 25 January 2007 (UTC)
It doesn't matter if it's official or not, the official name of the Knicks is New York Knickerbockers, but it's at New York Knicks, and with the basketball (volleyball seems to have the same logotype as well) as the most prominent among the basketball teams, the logotype can be displayed in the article. If you'd want, you can create the other logotypes of other teams, historical logotypes, etc. --Howard the Duck 14:50, 25 January 2007 (UTC)
It matters if it's official or not. Otherwise, it will be misleading, if not outright false. I advise you to find an official source backing up your particular use of the Ateneo logotype. Until then, expect reversions. Rmcsamson 06:49, 26 January 2007 (UTC)
I'll send this to WP:RFC. --Howard the Duck 11:41, 26 January 2007 (UTC)

PAASCU article[edit]

I've removed the copyrighted text you insist on placing in the PAASCU article. The text you have placed is merely lifted from PAASCU's website. This is a violation of Wikipedia policy. Further insistence in placing the copyrighted text will be met with reversion. Rmcsamson 14:40, 19 February 2007 (UTC)

For the record, the text I 'insist' on placing in the PAASCU article is not 'merely lifted' from PAASCU's website. It was sourced from a PAASCU Accreditation Primer; my only sin is the failure to properly cite that tome. However, if such failure on my part disturbs your delicate sensibilities, I shall refrain from reverting it again, for the moment. =) -- Kguirnela 16:36, 20 February 2007 (UTC)
The problem is not citation, but copyright violation. The same text you insist on restoring is available in The primer you are talking about can be accessed via the website. In any case, the text you insist on placing is exactly the same text in the website. It appears that since you say it's from a primer, then the text you insist on placing was also merely lifted from that source as well. This is a violation of WP:C. My sensibilities, delicate or otherwise, are of no relevance to this. The reckless violation of Wikipedia policy on copyrights is.Rmcsamson 18:05, 20 February 2007 (UTC)
Well you seem to assume that the Primer I was referring to is the primer available for download on the website - it is not; it was an actual primer in book form, which I assume was also used by the web developers in building the organization's web presence. The egg came before the chicken; is it still a copyvio just because the items in the book and in soft copy are exactly the same? Am I to assume that I have the right to rephrase these official policies set forth by PAASCU? Wouldn't that be "reckless"? -- Kguirnela 08:17, 21 February 2007 (UTC)
The form is irrelevant. The content is substantially identical. Thus, the copyright violation still subsists. Yes, rephrasing is allowed, because there is at least an attempt to avoid recklessly placing the exact copyrighted text. What would be preferred, however, is a discussion of the contents of the primer, with possible elaboration on, say, which schools, colleges, and universities have already achieved certain levels of accreditation, criticisms faced by PAASCU's accreditation process, etc. Rmcsamson 15:00, 21 February 2007 (UTC)
Cool. Well taken. -- Kguirnela 02:34, 22 February 2007 (UTC)

La Salle-FEU MBA-JD Program[edit]

Princeton does not have a JD or an MBA. But it offers an MPA. Princeton MPA partnered with Columbia Law to offer a joint MPA-JD. La Salle, like Princeton, does not have a Law program. So it partnered with FEU to offer a joint MBA-JD. Simple logic. And that's what Deans Juico and Bautista said in national dailies, law classes, and orientation programs.

Congratulations for a good job as Wikipedia editor. I hope you can write new articles or expand existing ones. You can really CONTRIBUTE by ADDING new information, not just editing and maligning (or at least making accusations of being a liar) Wikipedians with sincere and actual efforts to contribute to Wikipedia.

Please leave notes in a COURTEOUS manner. As a fellow Wikipedian, I see no reason why you failed to accord me the slightest respect in your language. I may not have written perfect articles, but I will never make strong accusations, conceited statements, or offensive remarks.

With much respect and hopeful that you'd change your ways... Miketedting 22:00, 21 May 2007 (UTC)

Addressing Unconstructive Remarks consistently made by User:Rmcsamson[edit]

While I thank every Wikipedian who, through constructive criticism, has helped me improve my work here at Wikipedia, I must address unconstructive remarks, unwelcoming statements, and highly conceited language addressed by experienced Wikipedians to new contributors like me.

I make this explanation in the spirit of justice, fair play, and equal dealing.

  • To address your recent concern:

The specific "national dailies" were mentioned in the footnotes. The interviews need not be conducted by User:Miketedting, they were published in the "national dailies" already noted in the article.

Does an article violate the "non-NPOV" policy just because it was written by someone personally involved in the topic? Not necessarily.

An expert or authority attains "expertise" in a subject matter through academic study, empirical study, observation, or experience. The more an author is "involved" with a topic, the more opportunity for him to gain "knowldege" or "expertise" in that field. More often, extensive and intensive article creations and edits are made by Wikipedians closely "involved" in their topics of interest (i.e. Rmcsamson, an Ateneo Law student, expanding articles on Ateneo School of Law, Ateneo de Manila University, tagging articles of other schools as unreferenced, etc.). Hence,we expect helpful, current, and comprehensive information not usually found in conventional encyclopedia like Britannica and Colliers. The fact of "non-NPOV" is something which must be proven and not assumed.

  • To explain my role in Wikipedia (for whatever its worth):

I joined Wikipedia with the sincere intention of contributing and expanding articles especially those relating to the Philippines. My objective is to make these articles as comprehensive, accurate, and correct as those topics relating to the United States and other industrialized nations. There is a dearth of information on the Philippines. Hardly is there any Philippine encyclopedia or almanac of recent publication.

I have created new articles, expanded existing articles, and made modifications to suit "encyclopedic" requirements of Wikipedia. In several occasions, I have rectified factual, grammatical, or technical errors to reflect the truth in every statement made in every subject matter.

I have made every effort to cite legitimate sources, citations, and factual trivia to support and fortify the legitimacy of information in every article I have created or expanded.

  • To address your NEGATIVE accusations, DISCOURAGING remarks, and UNCONSTRUCTIVE criticisms:

I have never insulted, maligned, or intimidated a fellow Wikipedian.

RESPECT is a concept that is universally accepted, understood, and practiced by individuals who know good morals and right conduct. Ask any seven-year-old kid and he probably knows and adheres to the concept too.

At Wikipedia, the basic rules for editing and leaving messages are:

  • Do not bite newcomers.
  • Be polite.
  • Assume good faith.
  • No personal attacks.
  • Be welcoming.

On separate occasions, you made the following statements which so clearly violate all basic rules of Wikipedia ethics:

  • That statement is either an outright lie, or badly researched. I am removing it within the next 48 hours.Rmcsamson 22:41, 18 May 2007 (UTC)
  • I also have no idea what degree of courtesy is required. I have no sympathy for false statements, or those which are placed indiscriminately.Rmcsamson 15:35, 21 May 2007 (UTC)

  • To make a closure on this matter:

I am offended by your statements. Your problems could have been resolved in a civil and polite manner.

I rest my case.

Rmcsamson, do what makes you happy. Have a nice life.

Miketedting 08:41, 24 May 2007 (UTC)Miketedting

Your recent edit to Ateneo School of Law (diff) was reverted by an automated bot that attempts to recognize and repair vandalism to Wikipedia articles. If the bot reverted a legitimate edit, please accept my humble creator's apologies – if you bring it to the attention of the bot's owner, we may be able to improve its behavior.

A tool for leaving warning messages[edit]

Hi. I noticed that you actively revert vandalism to articles. Thanks!! I also noticed that in at least one case (Society of Jesus) you didn't leave a warning message on the vandal's talk page. I think it's important to leave messages in almost every instance of even the most minor inappropriate edits for these (and probably other) reasons:

  • People just test-editing can be directed to the sandbox where they won't corrupt real articles.
  • Mischievious newcomers may stop if their first edits result in a polite request to behave.
  • Sysops can more quickly ban more serious vandals if they've already been warned a few times.

Leaving lots of messages can be tedious, even with the templates documented at Wikipedia:Vandalism. So I've made some vandal-warning tools that are explained at User:Kbh3rd/Vandal_warning_toolbox. A list of warnings can be added to that toolbox menu on the left whenever a user talk page is being edited so that the proper warning message is only a click away. You're welcome to try it out.

Regardless, thanks again for your help! --Kbh3rdtalk 15:57, 20 June 2007 (UTC)

Ateneo Blue Eaglets[edit]

Hello also, Rmcsamson! Point taken on the UAAP Juniors tally. Since I also cannot find more information to support the claim of FEU winning in 1987, I will leave the list as is. However, you may also want to look at this PDF file I found on the Ateneo website (bottom). It gives general information about the Blue Eaglets as of last year (Season 70). At the bottom is a list of years the Eaglets have won the championship, and it doesn't list 1987 as one of them. However, it also doesn't list 1978 as a championship year, and a 1978 juniors championship banner was definitely hanging inside the Gym. This may mean that this list is incomplete as well. This is just for additional information. Thanks!
Mk32 (talk) 11:54, 27 September 2008 (UTC)

Two newspaper reports from the Philippine Star and Philippine Daily Inquirer specifically state that 2008 is the first time Ateneo has won the Junior and Mens Senior division basketball championship in the same year, meaning that Ateneo did not win the juniors title in 1987. Both also point out that this is the Eaglets' 16th title, as you have mentioned to me, so the Eaglets must have won another title during some other year. I will change the 1987 juniors entry at UAAP Basketball Championship to "Unknown", since there is no information available about that year, except that the Eaglets did not win. Thanks again! Mk32 (talk) 17:30, 27 September 2008 (UTC)

re: Xavier University Article[edit]

It is quite impolite to point out that someone's grammatical usage is outright incorrect, more so if the usage of the word in the preferred manner is becoming acceptable in modern English. Kindly see this reference. Other references we might be able to find as well are expressing the same approval with regards to the usage of the word.
The issue on grammatical rules is fairly minimal compared to the work that needs to be done on the Xavier University (Cagayan de Oro) entry. We better dedicate more time on filling up this entry with appropriate information rather than showing off who has better command on the English language (as what you have been trying to prove basing from the entries in your page).--Groupbest (talk) 07:21, 12 December 2008 (UTC)

Fair use ADMU images[edit]

I notice User:Minala has uploaded a lot of copyrighted photos of ADMU, and you have placed fair use claims on their description pages. However, a fair use claim requires that the images not be replaceable with free alternatives, and most of these images are replaceable (despite the description on the talk page).

WP:Hornbook -- a new law-related task force for the J.D. curriculum[edit]

Hi Rmcsamson,

I'm asking Wikipedians who are interested in United States legal articles to take a look at WP:Hornbook, the new "JD curriculum task force".

Our mission is to assimilate into Wikipedia all the insights of an American law school education, by reducing hornbooks to footnotes.

  • Over the course of a semester, each subpage will shift its focus to track the unfolding curriculum(s) for classes using that casebook around the country.
  • It will also feature an extensive, hyperlinked "index" or "outline" to that casebook, pointing to pages, headers, or {{anchors}} in Wikipedia (example).
  • Individual law schools can freely adapt our casebook outlines to the idiosyncratic curriculum devised by each individual professor.
  • I'm encouraging law students around the country to create local chapters of the club I'm starting at my own law school, "Student WP:Hornbook Editors". Using WP:Hornbook as our headquarters, we're hoping to create a study group so inclusive that nobody will dare not join.

What you can do now:

1. Add WP:Hornbook to your watchlist, {{User Hornbook}} to your userpage, and ~~~~ to Wikipedia:Hornbook/participants.
2. If you're a law student,
(You don't have to start the club, or even be involved in it; just help direct me to someone who might.)
3. Introduce yourself to me. Law editors on Wikipedia are a scarce commodity. Do knock on my talk page if there's an article you'd like help on.

Tagalog help needed[edit]

Hello Rmcsamson, I'm contacting you because we need some Tagalog translators to help with the deployment of the new VisualEditor on tl.wikipedia. There are help pages, user guides, and description pages that need translating, as well as the interface itself. The translating work is going on over on MediaWiki: Translation Central. I also need help with a personal message for the Tagalog Wikipedians. If you are able to help in any way, either reply here, or head over to TranslationCentral. Thanks for your time, PEarley (WMF) (talk) 18:31, 2 September 2013 (UTC)

Re: Quezon City Science High School[edit]

Dear Sir,

Two "editors", Dewritech and ScrapIronIV, have been reverting the changes I am making to the Quezon City Science High School Wikipedia page. Seeing that you're in the "Talk" section, may I humbly request help as to explaining to these two "editors" the rationale of adding such background information? Thank you very much. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:54, 21 November 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

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.

Wikipedia-integrated academic journal[edit]


I'm messaging to ask whether you might be interested in being an editor for the WikiJournal of Humanities ( It's a journal modelled on the successful Wikipedia-integrated medical journal ( The editorial board is covers a range of fields and expertise in the Humanities, arts and social sciences.

It couples the rigour of academic peer review with the extreme reach of the encyclopedia. It is therefore an excellent way to achieve public engagement, outreach and impact public understanding of science (articles often get >100,000 views per year).

Peer-reviewed articles are dual-published both as standard academic PDFs, as well as directly into Wikipedia. This improves the accuracy of the encyclopedia, and rewards academics,experts and professionals with citable, indexed publications. It also provides much greater reach than is normally achieved through traditional scholarly publishing.

Based on my experiences, time commitment is pretty flexible. An editor would generally devote 2-10 hours per month to inviting suitable submissions and organise their external peer review:

  • Identify fully missing Wikipedia topics and invite academics to write broad review articles on them (e.g. this)
  • Identify important, but poorly covered topics and invite experts to update or overhaul them (e.g. this)
  • Invite authors of good Wikipedia pages to put their articles through external peer review (like this)
  • Possibly implement some figure or gallery review articles (e.g this and this)

Hopefully it will help to get experts, academics and professionals to contribute content to the encyclopedia via a more familiar and cv-rewarding academic journal format.

Anyway, let me know if it's the sort of thing that might interest you. PS. A relevant article in Science.
