No legal threats[edit]

Hello, regarding a complaint against me for making legal threats, I am assuring you that there is nothing as such from me now.

List of drainage areas[edit]

Thanks a lot for your help, Rmhermen. As far as I understood, if there is a conflict between the interwikis (if the page added wikidata before) you have to first remove the incorrectly added data page and then add the correct one. Am I right? My most additions are interwikis in English wiki and I did not know the recent changes (wikidata - interwikis and infoboxes). Could you also provide a help page for these info?

Disambiguation link notification for November 8[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Dearborn, Michigan, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Jim Cummins. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Tsogo Sun[edit]

Hello Rmhermen,

This summer you participated in the AFD discussion (about the Tsogo Sun company). The page was deleted due to lack of good references showing notability of the subject.

I am agree with you that the company is clearly notable for Wikipedia. I made an extensive search for information that would allow to restore the page. Here you can see my corrected and expanded version of the old userfied page: sandbox.

Please let me know whether I can restore the page using this text. I need your (second) opinion, because JamesBWatson (wiki admin) was and is still sure that the subject does not satisfy Wikipedia's notability guidelines. —Alexandra Goncharik -sms- 16:28, 30 November 2014 (UTC)

Thinker[edit]

Hi Rmhermen,

You edited the "Lost of The Thinker" page today.

It is a page I regularly visit as I'm hunting down the original Bronze monumental sized casts.

The update is a bit messy, as you just put a table in the middle of it all and removed some of the headings.

The Thinker's page actually quotes : "The Thinker has been cast in multiple versions and is found around the world; the history of the progression from models to castings is complicated and still not entirely clear. About 28 monumental-sized bronze casts of the sculpture are in museums and public places. In addition, there are sculptures of different study size scales and plaster versions (often painted bronze) in both monumental and study sizes. Some newer castings have been produced posthumously and are not considered part of the original production."

Can you revert to type or the old format and make it clear on the page where the 28 monumental-sized bronze casts are. As it was clear in the original page.

Thanks

Still in progress. I plan to continue working on the list but there is no such thing as 28 official monumental-sized bronze casts. The current table includes all of the monumental-sized Thinkers in bronze and plaster finished in Rodin's lifetime (except the disputed foundry plasters). There are also the rest of the Alexis Rudier casts, some started by Rodin but some cast 15 years after his death, the Georges Rudier casts (the edition of 12) done in the 1960s-1980s and the Sayegh and Gruppo Mondiale ones done around 1999 to be sorted. Cleveland claims 25 monumental casts while http://www.penseur.org/ lists 31 or 32, probably but only lists 10 of the edition of 12 - and one of those appear to be an incorrect location.

ICTY[edit]

Well, I explained in the edit summary. If the indictment was withdrawn, then it's over, right?

Erra-imitti[edit]

The concept of living, therefore animate, "substitute figurine" for the person of the king comes from the source I quoted. I didn't try to put a spin on it. The use of (clay) "substitute figurines" is rather well attested in cuneiform culture (see Alasdair Livingstone, Mystical and Mythological Explanatory Works of Assyrian and Babylonian Scholars), but the use of living substitutes is also apparent - e.g. the "scape-goat". I would suppose the author (Nemet-Nejat) meant, when she described the substitute as a "statue though animate", that it was a living person which otherwise didn't do anything - certainly not acting as a proxy. Ironic that Erra-imitti's own successor was, according to legend anyway, a substitute that outlived his sponsor. BigEars42 (talk) 16:24, 7 June 2015 (UTC)

Pottery and vitrification[edit]

Please stop making flawed changes. If you consider changes are needed then take the appropriate talk pages, but please stop blind reverting and removing referenced content — Preceding unsigned comment added by 117.239.214.17 (talk) 02:36, 12 June 2015 (UTC)

You are the one making the unexplained changes. Vitrification is the process of forming glasses - which is the process going in clays during heating of pottery and the link is correct. Rmhermen (talk) 02:38, 12 June 2015 (UTC)
I have noted reasons for the changes. The link you added is incorrect. Vitrification in the context of pottery means the lack of permeability to water. And for a wreference "Vitreous (vitrified) - that degree of vitrification evidenced by low water absorption" by ASTM — Preceding unsigned comment added by 117.239.214.17 (talk) 02:43, 12 June 2015 (UTC)
That is an effect of the formation of glasses in the material - not a definition of the process. Rmhermen (talk) 20:04, 12 June 2015 (UTC)

Krystal Meyers' birthday valid source Department of Health Services, Vital Statistics Department, Sacramento CA[edit]

You wrote "Reverted edits by Asian Radio Guru to last version by Walter Görlitz" and he wrote in error "This was the original source that was removed" which is untrue as the original source was a site that no longer gives birth info for free (see below links). So you are NOT paying attention to the facts. My info goes to the United States, Department of Health Services, Vital Statistics which is proof as proof gets. You cannot say it is not a valid source, period. So you cant just revert something back to an untrue reason (Walter Görlitz reason) as you conveniently gave no reason for your action. You did that because you knew you had no valid reason for you action.

What I have as PROOF of Krystal Meyers' birth is this: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Krystal_Meyers&oldid=670472721#cite_note-birth_name-1 going to this page https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:VLY6-RMX which is incontrovertible proof of Krystal Meyers' birth.

California Birth Index - Krystal Nicole Meyers, 31 Jul 1988; citing Orange, California, United States, Department of Health Services, Vital Statistics Department, Sacramento". Family Search: Intellectual Reserve, Inc. 1988. Retrieved July 7, 2015. l that linked to here https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:VLY6-RMX that is NOT the previous, effectively, non functioning site

What was there was that no longer provides birth info for free was this: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Krystal_Meyers&oldid=667124565#cite_note-birth_name-1 "California Births - Krystal Meyers". Pearl Street Software/Family Tree Legends. 1988. Retrieved February 1, 2013, that linked to here http://www.familytreelegends.com/records/calbirths?c=search&first=krystal&last=meyers&spelling=Exact&4_year=1988&4_month=7&4_day=31&5=female&7=orange&SubmitSearch.x=45&SubmitSearch.y=19 which now redirects to the site that now requires a payment to view their information and NOT what I am linking to as proof.

So that was only able to be removed in the first place because that site changed to be a paid service that no longer provided birth record information for fee, for public view, where the site I have linked does offer birth record info for public view going to go to Orange, California, United States, Department of Health Services, Vital Statistics Department, Sacramento

The site I listed gives proof of Krystal Meyers birth : https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:VLY6-RMX

So I am reverting your objection and notated this page and I will also direct people to see the history of this page just in case you try to do like Walker did and simply remove it (https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=User_talk:Walter_G%C3%B6rlitz&oldid=672798318#Krystal_Meyers.27_birthday). Know that you cannot remove it from your history and people would see you removing valid proof, so I would suggest you do not make any attempt to undo my edits, because this page is being watched by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Not threat. A fact.

This is an unreliable copy of a primary source, not a secondary source. We have no way (from that source) to know that that record is correct or that it refers to the subject of the article. Rmhermen (talk) 17:31, 24 July 2015 (UTC)

You are a liar. You do not work for the FBI. So you are impersonating an FBI agent and just so you will know what you are getting yourself into, that is a crime punishable by up to three years in prison and a $250,000 fine and that is for that crime alone, when you are found guilty of it (you are guilty because you just said you are an FBI agent and that history https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Krystal_Meyers&action=history you cannot get rid of. You can, at best put a line through that but it will show. I know by you current and previous actions that you are not an FBI agent. I am not an FBI agent. But I factually told you that page (and now I am letting you know that Krystal Meyers' also) was being watched by the FBI and it is. But you took that information and dug your high heels in, like a rebellious child with no sense at all.

I have reverted your edit because the information a site that is known to provide accurate information. It is NOT a secondary source. It is a portal for that direct information. Is a feed from Orange, California, United States, Department of Health Services, Vital Statistics Department, Sacramento, NOT secondary information. They are linked to the database of the United States, Department of Health Services, Vital Statistics Department, Sacramento. So your secondary information claim is invalid.

No it is not a direct link to Orange, California, United States, Department of Health Services, Vital Statistics Department, Sacramento and a secondary source is what we need since you have noo way of establishing a connection between that original record and the article subject. Rmhermen (talk) 18:02, 24 July 2015 (UTC)
For the record, 64.134.145.22 (talk · contribs), the anon who is commenting here, appears to be Asian Radio Guru (talk · contribs), who when not signed in indicated that the Krystal Meyers article is being watch by The Federal Bureau of Investigation to which Rmhermen replied wow, I work for the FBI now? Asian Radio Guru never claimed that Rmhermen worked for the FBI, rather that the FBI was watching the article. No proof to support that claim was made. It's likely that they're "watching" everything on Wikipedia in the same way other government agencies do. I cannot find any direct evidence that this subject is of more interest to that agency than any other pop singer is. No claim of working for the FBI was made by Rmhermen either.
Further, there's no definitive connection between that public record and the subject. Rmhermen is correctly reverting and Asian Radio Guru is in an edit war. Walter Görlitz (talk) 11:58, 25 July 2015 (UTC)

Regarding the AfD[edit]

I didn't mention anything about it being "noticeable", I literally said it's asserting very little notability, and the referencing is bad (which is correct, they're primary). I actually missed where it says In March 2013 Helen Zell gave $50 million to LS&A, the largest gift in LS&A history, but other than that there's no claim to notability. The sarcasm really wasn't needed. Either way, I've taken a look at the article, and the main university article and closed it. I've also tagged it for improvement. --  Kethrus |talk to me  15:56, 30 October 2015 (UTC)

You were trying to claim that a college of 18,000 students was non-notable. I think perhaps you don't know our standards and customs for notability of schools. Rmhermen (talk) 16:06, 30 October 2015 (UTC)
The notability guidelines require sources, I'd have thought an administrator would have known that. It's apparent you haven't read the guidelines yourself. --  Kethrus |talk to me  16:14, 30 October 2015 (UTC)
"Notability is based on the existence of suitable sources, not on the state of sourcing in an article". Rmhermen (talk) 16:21, 30 October 2015 (UTC)
That may be true, but the state of the article is relatively poor, why not try improving it instead of being unhelpful making sarcastic comments? --  Kethrus |talk to me

Look before you delete[edit]

I made a huge edit on a Santa Maria page, and you deleted my edit? Did you even see what the other person wrote on that? He says Christopher Columbus fell asleep and a kid took over and crashed the ship into Haiti and sank it the next day. Then on the return trip, on 24 December (1492), not having slept for two days, Columbus decided at 11:00 p.m. to lie down to sleep. The night being calm, the steersman also decided to sleep, leaving only a cabin boy to steer the ship, a practice which the admiral had always strictly forbidden. With the boy at the helm, the currents carried the ship onto a sandbank, running her aground off the present-day site of Cap-Haïtien, Haiti. It sank the next day. That was the old one, I highly doubt that is what happened so stop deleting my edit it makes more sense than that. — Preceding unsigned comment added by TheCakeIsAnLie (talkcontribs) 19:37, 29 February 2016 (UTC)

If there is anything you can do, I would truly appreciate it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2607:FB90:2552:5188:0:3D:B5E4:EF01 (talk) 22:05, 29 May 2016 (UTC)

British Columbia protected areas[edit]

Hi there. I think you have erred in fulfilling my request to speedy delete List of protected areas of British Columbia‎. The article you moved to that name, List of municipal and regional parks in British Columbia, should not have been moved there. List of British Columbia Provincial Parks should have been moved to there, as per my original request, as it is an article about parks and protected areas designated by the province of British Columbia. This would bring it in line with other lists for Canada's other 9 provinces and 3 territories. List of municipal and regional parks in British Columbia is a low quality list that could be substituted for a category instead, but I am frying bigger fish right now. Could I ask for your assistance again in correcting this? Thank you. --Natural RX 18:48, 19 July 2016 (UTC)

I think I have done it correctly and in line with the standards set out at Wikipedia:WikiProject Protected areas. Protected areas articles were intended to be the highest level overview of all areas under any kind of protection. List of British Columbia Provincial Parks should only cover provincial parks and is too large to include as a section of the higher level article. See Protected areas of Australia or Protected areas of Michigan. Rmhermen (talk) 22:45, 21 July 2016 (UTC)

DNC wikileaks, sanders and lessig[edit]

Hi, thanks for your answer on the ref desk. Was what you were saying that (since there is no party to be a member of, at the national level), that can't be used as a figleaf justification for the favoritism the dnc had for clinton? If so, then the guys i heard on talk radio were just spinmeisters, probably from the dnc. That's pretty disgraceful!144.35.45.94 (talk) 23:44, 28 July 2016 (UTC)

Correct. There is no national party membership. Bernie was elected as an Independent who allied himself with the Democratic Caucus of the United States Senate and helped found the Congressional Progressive Caucus. Although he was an Independent, his 2006 senate run was endorsed by the Democrats who ran no candidate against him. Rmhermen (talk) 01:35, 29 July 2016 (UTC)

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, Rmhermen. This message is intended to notify administrators of important changes to the protection policy.

Extended confirmed protection (also known as "30/500 protection") is a new level of page protection that only allows edits from accounts at least 30 days old and with 500 edits. The automatically assigned "extended confirmed" user right was created for this purpose. The protection level was created following this community discussion with the primary intention of enforcing various arbitration remedies that prohibited editors under the "30 days/500 edits" threshold to edit certain topic areas.

In July and August 2016, a request for comment established consensus for community use of the new protection level. Administrators are authorized to apply extended confirmed protection to combat any form of disruption (e.g. vandalism, sock puppetry, edit warring, etc.) on any topic, subject to the following conditions:

  • Extended confirmed protection may only be used in cases where semi-protection has proven ineffective. It should not be used as a first resort.
  • A bot will post a notification at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard of each use. MusikBot currently does this by updating a report, which is transcluded onto the noticeboard.
Please review the protection policy carefully before using this new level of protection on pages. Thank you.
This message was sent to the administrators' mass message list. To opt-out of future messages, please remove yourself from the list. 17:49, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

Two-Factor Authentication now available for admins[edit]

Hello,

Please note that TOTP based two-factor authentication is now available for all administrators. In light of the recent compromised accounts, you are encouraged to add this additional layer of security to your account. It may be enabled on your preferences page in the "User profile" tab under the "Basic information" section. For basic instructions on how to enable two-factor authentication, please see the developing help page for additional information. Important: Be sure to record the two-factor authentication key and the single use keys. If you lose your two factor authentication and do not have the keys, it's possible that your account will not be recoverable. Furthermore, you are encouraged to utilize a unique password and two-factor authentication for the email account associated with your Wikimedia account. This measure will assist in safeguarding your account from malicious password resets. Comments, questions, and concerns may be directed to the thread on the administrators' noticeboard.

A new user right for New Page Patrollers[edit]

Hi Rmhermen.

A new user group, New Page Reviewer, has been created in a move to greatly improve the standard of new page patrolling. The user right can be granted by any admin at PERM. It is highly recommended that admins look beyond the simple numerical threshold and satisfy themselves that the candidates have the required skills of communication and an advanced knowledge of notability and deletion. Admins are automatically included in this user right.

It is anticipated that this user right will significantly reduce the work load of admins who patrol the performance of the patrollers. However,due to the complexity of the rollout, some rights may have been accorded that may later need to be withdrawn, so some help will still be needed to some extent when discovering wrongly applied deletion tags or inappropriate pages that escape the attention of less experienced reviewers, and above all, hasty and bitey tagging for maintenance. User warnings are available here but very often a friendly custom message works best.

If you have any questions about this user right, don't hesitate to join us at WT:NPR. (Sent to all admins).MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 13:47, 15 November 2016 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Galvanize[edit]

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 Galvanize, requesting that it be deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under two or more of the criteria for speedy deletion, by which pages can be deleted at any time, without discussion. If the page meets any of these strictly-defined criteria, then it may be soon be deleted by an administrator. The reasons it has been tagged are:

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator, or if you have already done so, you can place a request here. 331dot (talk) 23:47, 22 November 2016 (UTC)

Solar power by country - Australia[edit]

Hello Rmhermen,

I noticed that when you updated the pie graph in an edit to the Solar power by country article you also reverted the change to the Australian capacity value. This value (5920 MW in April 2017) was taken from the same source that the original value of 5400 MW in June 2016 was taken. This source updates every few months when new data becomes available. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 130.95.254.58 (talk) 04:23, 30 April 2017 (UTC)

Allen Park[edit]

About a year ago, there was an RfC about including vague economic modifiers in article ledes. It was decided that they were not appropriate. I can't recall exactly where this discussion occurred, and my time is quite limited right now. However, it replaced a previous consensus that they could be used if sourced appropriately. So, your restoration of the IP'S edits wouldn't have been appropriate even prior to the aforementioned RfC. The housing price bit unambiguously does not belong in the lede, as that is the only mention of it in the article. John from Idegon (talk) 21:26, 18 May 2017 (UTC)

Hey[edit]

Wondering what you meant with this comment on that user talkpage. Thanks, Shearonink (talk) 17:08, 7 July 2017 (UTC)

I was pointing out our page explaining what talk pages are by pointing to our explanation page after the user expressed a claim about what they thought talk pages are used for. Rmhermen (talk) 19:50, 7 July 2017 (UTC)
I'm not sure I understand what you just posted but I think I do - thanks for your reply. I will say that this particular editor does seem to be here not to edit Wikipedia but instead to right great wrongs. They say on their user talk "But no action is being proposed." They aren't making a proposal? Really - could have fooled me. Every concern they have raised about editing Wikipedia is all about policy and guidelines, is about editing, is about word-choices. They say they are just "simply registering a concern with fellow readers in a forum where space is not an issue and where bulletpoints are hyperlinked, facilitating easy navigation." Many helps and posts about editing have been made to their user talk and on the various pages they have posted to - I have yet to see any evidence that they taken any of these posts to heart or that they maybe have gone through any of the various tutorials.
