Racqueltorres[edit]

Hi. I have deleted Racqueltorres, which I assume you have created by mistake. Consider that you cannot enter copyrighted text in Wikipedia. If the text of this article was not under copyright and you want to recreate an article with a correct title, I can post the previous content of the article here. - Liberatore(T) 15:39, 16 March 2006 (UTC)


Hi Paolo...yes...the previous content needs to be posted under the title George Washington Bradley under category 19th century baseball players It is taken from a 1931 newspaper article which I have cited.

Aw, I missed the date of 1931... Here is the text of the article:

George Washington Bradley (Grin) (1852-1931} batted righthanded and threw righthanded. He was 5'10.5" and 175 lbs. George Bradley was the first man to pitch an official no-hit, no-run game in major league baseball. He pitched for St. Louis in the club's victory over Hartford on July 13, 1876. The score ended 2-0 without a hit being allowed. Bradley was involved in professional baseball for thirty years, nineteen of them with the Philadelphia Athletics. He helped the A's win the championship of 1883. He became a Philadelphia policeman following baseball. At the time of his death George was retired on a pension from the police department which he had received beginning in September 1931. He died at his home, 2524 W. Hagert Street, Philadelphia, on Friday night, October 2, 1931. Funeral Services were conducted at the Stringfield Bldg., 1937 N. Broad St., Philadelphia, and he was buried in Northwood Cemtery. Bradley was married to Charlotte H. Bradley (nee Hevener). The former policeman and baseball pitcher was a member of F. and A.M., Lodge No. 9, Lambskin Club, Police Ben. Assoc., and the Veterans Athletic Asso. Sources: Philadelphia Public Ledger, Sunday Morning, Oct. 4, 1931, P. 6 and The 1996 MacMillan Baseball Encyclopedia Digital Edition.

For reasons that are too boring to be explained in details, I am not creating the article myself. You can click "edit" to cut this text for pasting in George Washington Bradley. Thanks. - Liberatore(T) 16:39, 16 March 2006 (UTC)


Hi Paolo,

I have contributed a page for Karl Tutwiler Adams under 19th century baseball players in error. I requested that the page be moved to Major League Baseball pitchers. Now the title of the article seems to be Major League Baseball pitchers rather than Karl Tutwiler Adams. Can you assist me or will this be change later? Best from Robertg9 Robert Reynolds Jr.

Ok, done. When you want to change the category of an article, just edit the article and change the part [[Category:Whatever]]. Beside, you stated that the source of this article is a newspaper from 1967. As such, I think that it cannot be reproduced here. I suggest to rewrite this article from scratch. Contact me when you are done, so that I can delete the version that contained copyrighted text. Sorry for insisting on copyright issues, but a copyright violation is a risk for the project (see Wikipedia:Copyright_FAQ for more details). - Liberatore(T) 19:13, 16 March 2006 (UTC)

Hi Paolo,

I listed the source as a 1967 newspapers. As with all the writing which I submit, I have written with my own wording and different from the way it was printed first. Many thanks for your change in the category for me. Best Robertg9 Robert

Also Paolo, the Jack Boyle entry is showing up under J under 19th century baseball players rather than B alphabetically...And my entry for George Washington Bradley is not appearing yet under 19th century baseball players. Finally the Karl Tutwiler Adams has yet to appear under Major League Pitchers alphabetically. Many thanks Robertg9...

The 1967 article is in my own words and different from the newspaper article...I always rephrase my submissions and cite the source or sources...

I think that the solution for alphabetizing correctly is [[Category:19th century baseball players|Boyle, Jack]] and similar for the other ones. However, rather than worring about categories, what these articles are still missing is some formatting: see the other articles in these categories for example. More details are in How to edit a page.
Two other things: do not start a line with a space, as that causes an incorrect formatting. Second, end your posts on talk pages with 4 tildes like this: ~~~~; do that only on talk pages (discussion) and not on articles. Thank you. - Liberatore(T) 20:26, 16 March 2006 (UTC)

Hi Paolo,


I prefer to keep the format of a 19th and early 20th century obit rather than a standard formula. I think it reads much better than merely statistics...--Robertg9 21:30, 16 March 2006 (UTC)


Paolo, My page on Karl Tutwiler Adams does not appear under major league pitchers. It appears be ok and has been formatted by Wikipedia...Would you put it in the correct place under major league pitchers? Also I have cleaned up the article on Martin F. Hogan which was tagged for cleanup, will you add it to the 19th century players now? Many thanks, Sincerely, Robert --Robertg9 16:36, 17 March 2006 (UTC)

The problem with Adams was capitalization: you used "Major League pitchers" but the category was named "Major league pitcher". The Hogan article was already in the correct category and in the correct position. - Liberatore(T) 17:16, 17 March 2006 (UTC)

Hi Paolo, Many thanks for your corrections. Will you also add the article on Gus Alberts to the 19th century baseball players. I don't think I have made mistakes in my submission, but please check. Best from Robert --Robertg9 18:11, 17 March 2006 (UTC)


Hi Paolo, I am beginning a project for my job at Duke University and I need your assistance. I am going to be contributing quite a bit on the subject of visual perception and need your ideas on where to begin placing the material. It deals with the philosopher George Berkeley, visual perception, etc. It is from the website of Dr. Dale Purves here at Duke Med. Ctr. He wants me to add his data along with pertinent figures....Should I begin under George Berkeley or start with the broader subject of visual perception? Also, about editing, where is a good place to begin? Best from Robert--Robertg9 14:28, 22 March 2006 (UTC)Robert G. Reynolds Jr. 3/22/06

Craik-O'Brien-Cornsweet illusion[edit]

See Talk:Craik-O'Brien-Cornsweet illusion. This material can be in the article only if it has previously published elsewhere and is referenced by a source citation. Also, Wikipedia articles do not have authors and are not signed. Dpbsmith (talk) 16:12, 28 March 2006 (UTC)


Hi I am working for Dr. Dale Purves in the Department of Cognitive Science at Duke University Medical Center. He has instructed me to add this information and more from his website. Can you please restore it as it has taken some time for me to type this? I was completing the text prior to typing the references. This is a major project for him and he has instructed me to add what he wants to Wikipedia according to topics of his choosing. I sign the articles after I have finished in order for people to recognize the changes I have made. I have earlier contributed articles for Dr. Purves relating to visual perception and Chubb illusion. Sincerely, Robert. I have requested that the boldface type on the Chubb illusion information but it has not yet been added. --Robert 16:25, 28 March 2006 (UTC)

OK, I'll do it, but for future reference you can do it yourself by going into the History section, clicking on the previous version, then clicking on "Edit This Page" which starts from the previous version. I'm taking you at your word that you'll add the references. Do not sign material that you put into articles. Changes are tracked via the History (and Differences) features.
To avoid problems with half-completed material, you can compose material on your own User page and then paste it into an article when you've completed it. Dpbsmith (talk) 17:17, 28 March 2006 (UTC)

Hi, could you provide the 'headline' and 'italics' as they should read now that I have completed the article about "Craik-O'Brien Cornsweet"? Also the boldface format which I have requested for my contributions on the Chub illusion? --Robert 18:38, 28 March 2006 (UTC)

Oh, that's so easy I really think you should do that yourself. To make an item italic, enclose it in a pair of single quotes when editing in the edit box.
''this'' in the edit box becomes this when the article is displayed.
To make it bold, enclose it in THREE single quotes:
'''this''' in the edit box becomes this when the article is displayed.

Link profligacy[edit]

Hi Robert,

I note from your edits on "depth perception" that you seem to have the habit of randomly wiki-linking words within your text. For example, in a single paragraph, you linked words like "clearly" "puzzles" "first" "room" "second" "tendency", etc. While it's good to link to other articles, it's bad to place links that a) don't go anywhere, like "empirically", and b) have no relevance to the article and are not obvious points of interest. That is, you should link to things that are likely to be unfamiliar terms to people that they would want to read about. People aren't likely to want to read an article on the word "clearly" (whatever that might be) while they're reading about depth perception, and it makes the text distracting. It also takes database queries to produce wikilinks, so every spurious link is a needless burden on the site. Your writing is good, but you might want to reconsider that particular habit. Graft 13:38, 11 May 2006 (UTC)

Ah - also, you appear to have included someone else's text into the page. Wikipedia articles should include ONLY absolutely original text, unless it is part of a quote. Graft 13:43, 11 May 2006 (UTC)

Many thanks for your comments...I will be less frequent with my links...However I do not understand which text you are talking about me having linked another person's text? The depth perception article I am adding for a professor I am working for at Duke...the link to his website is by his own instruction to me...., i.e. Dale Purves' Lab...www.purveslab.net/ He wants people to see this

Thanks again, Robert --Robert 17:04, 11 May 2006 (UTC)

You included some text that is taken straight from the Purves lab's web page. Perhaps Dale is willing to release copyright on it, but anyway it's probably not appropriate to quote it directly - it doesn't flow well with the text and its level of detail is inconsistent with the rest of the article. Also, while Purves' work is interesting, it's not really appropriate to use Wikipedia as a place to publicize the work... Graft 16:11, 12 May 2006 (UTC)

--152.16.224.169 19:38, 15 May 2006 (UTC)Robert 16:17, 15 May 2006 (UTC)Hello Graft,

Dr. Purves tells me that he wants to make a contribution to Wikipedia. He does not intend to try and "publicize" his work but to make some helpful additions on topics related to visual perception. He is revising his insertions to make them original for Wikipedia and I hope this will work out.

Sincerely, Robert--152.16.224.169 19:38, 15 May 2006 (UTC)

William Kennon Mayo[edit]

i've proposed William Kennon Mayo for deletion as non-notable. if you oppoose this proposal (as i suspect you might), please head over to the deletion discussion page and make your case. thanks! frymaster 17:25, 16 May 2006 (UTC)

I believe Mayo's career is noteworthy...He became a Commodore, held the post of Commander of Norfolk Navy Yard, participated in two major wars, and was cited by the Secretary of the Navy. This is as much as I can say to defend this person's inclusion. Also his career is interesting, especially his service in the Civil War where he captained several vessels.

Best from Robert--Robert 17:47, 16 May 2006 (UTC)


I think Commodore Mayo is safe from deletion. It was Afd'd just as you began to write it - but now it seems a nice bio of a fairly distinguished seaman. I just gave it a quick copy edit. Cheers, Grusl 18:45, 16 May 2006 (UTC)

Many thanks for your note, Sincerely, Robert--Robert 19:41, 16 May 2006 (UTC)

all has been noted and i've changed my opinion to "keep" on the afd page. if possible in the future could you not save draft copies but, rather, compose a more complete version offline and save all at once? the rc-patrollers will thank you for it! frymaster 19:55, 16 May 2006 (UTC)

Chubb illusion[edit]

Chubb illusion that you wrote appears to take information from what seems to be a copyrighted source: purveslab. What's up with that?--Commander Keane 10:14, 19 May 2006 (UTC)

I am contributing information for Dale Purves, the Director of Cognitive Neuroscience at Duke Medical Center. --Robert 16:03, 19 May 2006 (UTC)

Shauna Grant[edit]

Hi! Welcome to Wikipedia! Your additions to the Shauna Grant article were brought to my attention, and I wanted to ask you about them. For one, from what source or sources did you get your information for the article? Also, there is a question about the tone of the article, which is written more like an biography rather than a proper encyclopedia article. Perhaps you can revise the article so as to include verifiable sources as references, and follow the manual of style regarding the tone of the article? Of course, if you have any questions, please feel free to ask away! Thank you! -- Joe Beaudoin Jr. Think out loudWP:PORN BIO? 23:52, 9 June 2006 (UTC)

Hi Joe,

The article is very much taken from a valid source. It is from the work of LA Times columnist Michael London. I will be adding additional sources. I think it is debatable as to what defines a "proper" encyclopedia article. The writing Mr. London did and another source I am using are both interviews and oral histories, therefore the biographical tone. London was perhaps the only person privy to the Applegate family after her tragic death because they are Catholic and wanted to convince the reporter their daughter did not commit suicide. The article which was on your site is very vague and her bio needed more details. It's an event I remember and have been curious about for some time. I know the star Tiffany Mynx and former star Angela Summers through correspondence.--Robert 04:57, 10 June 2006 (UTC)Robertg9

Joe,

Check the Shauna article again for listing of sources, of which I added 4 or 5 on the weekend.

Biographical articles[edit]

Many thanks for your contributions to biographical articles on Wikipedia. Unfortunately, quite a few of your articles have been deleted or listed for deletion. This isn't because they are bad, or because we hate you (we certainly don't!), but because they relate to people who probably shouldn't have encyclopedia articles written about them. Please don't take offence, but consider reading our guidelines for inclusion of biographical articles before adding any more. Thanks again! Stifle (talk) 00:25, 10 June 2006 (UTC)


This is really strange and pathetic. I have a number of parties at Duke where I work who enjoy reading these bios of Mexican War veterans. Is it fair to delete them just because some so called authority "caves in" and merely wants to remove them? Likewise there are many articles I read which are so poorly written and researched, and which you let stand up. Is there really an "objective criterion" for inclusion on Wikipedia? I hardly believe it anymore. And there are others who are seconding this notion. Why have an internet resource if one cannot be creative when writing and contributing? We can all just read Britannica. I mean it's a free resource at Duke and other universities. This random policing by so-called authorities is counterproductive in oh so many ways to your website!--Robert 20:55, 10 June 2006 (UTC)

Please read WP:BIO for our inclusion policies for people. Those nominating articles for deletion are not "so-called authorities"... They are editors like you and me, although they're usually pretty familiar with our policies. Grandmasterka 08:51, 12 June 2006 (UTC)

Hi,

Can you tell me the reason my contribution to "Baracuda" has been deleted or "vandalized"? I made a substantial entry to this article during May and over the weekend noticed that all but the sources have been deleted. The most glaring deletion had to do with the attacks on humans by baracuda dating back to the 17th century. You will notice the classical sources, some of which are entered in a foreign language, French, etc. Please let me know...if it was an editorial deletion I did not hear from you.--Robert 13:22, 12 June 2006 (UTC)

Articles related to visual perception[edit]

Regarding your comments on my talk page:

This is in relation to articles related to visual perception which have been removed by you due to copyright issues. Mach Bands is a particular one in which information contributed by Dale Purves at Neuroscience, Duke Medical Center, was removed. I am his assistant who has been inserting the articles. We have removed any contributions which would link to or in any manner infringe on copyright issues. I request that we be able to re-enter his ideas with improvements made specifically for Wikipedia, which in no way will be a mirror of any other figures. We have removed figures for Mach bands, Chubb illusion, etc. Please let us know if this is ok because we would like to continue our work.

You do not need to ask my permission to edit Wikipedia articles, however, your previous contributions have been merely to cut-and-paste text from http://www.purveslab.net/ . Depending on who holds the copyright and granted permission for that text to be used here, it may or may not have violated Wiki policy regarding copyrights. Other relevant policies and guidelines can be found in Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not (e.g. Wiki is not a mirror) and Wikipedia:Autobiography (e.g. "You should wait for others to write an article about subjects in which you are personally involved. This applies to articles about you, your achievements, your business, your publications, your website, your relatives, and any other possible conflict of interest."). Also, if you have been instructed to "re-enter (Dr. Purves') ideas", please be sure this does violate Wikipedia:No original research. -Medtopic 17:05, 26 June 2006 (UTC)

Ditto for Simultaneous brightness contrast, which was clearly copied. -Will Beback 22:19, 24 July 2006 (UTC)
Despite previous warnings, it appears that you again inserted cut-and-paste material into Color vision, Cornsweet illusion, Chubb illusion, and Mach bands‎. Please familiarize yourself with Wikipedia policies and guidelines outlined above. -AED 00:00, 30 September 2006 (UTC)

copyright violation message[edit]

Hi Robertg9. Could you please tell me the exact name of the deleted article? --Fang Aili talk 13:43, 21 August 2006 (UTC)

Hi,

Simultaneous brightness contrast

Robert--Robert 13:46, 21 August 2006 (UTC)

This article was a pretty clear copy of this, and even if you did get permission from Dale Perves, a number of other problems arise:
  1. Dale Perves would have to release the information under a GDFL or Creative Commons license, and
  2. Wikipedia has a policy of No original research.

Therefore inclusion of this article is not appropriate. I appreciate your enthusiasm, though. I would bet there are other wiki sites that would accept original research such as this. Cheers, Fang Aili talk 14:49, 21 August 2006 (UTC)

References needed for facts in Jack Boyle[edit]

Hi,

You did a great job starting out the article on Jack Boyle. I recently went through and added as many references as possible to the facts in the article, but there were still many I could not find sources for. If possible, would you be able to add in the in line citations to the sources you used in creating the article? I'd like to get the information confirmed, or if its not possible for it to be confirmed, it should be removed. If it's a web site, you can just send me the link and I'll reference whatever's there. Thanks, Mattingly23 21:36, 24 November 2006 (UTC)

Hi,

The article is from the Cincinnati newspaper, the Inquirer, from a day or so after Boyle's death. I am not sure I can put my hand on it just now, as it was mailed to me by a librarian and I have misplaced it. So am not sure of the page number. I will look today to see if I can find an alternate source in another database. Best from Robert--Robert 12:21, 27 November 2006 (UTC)

Orphaned fair use image (Image:Ann Harding.jpg.JPG)[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Ann Harding.jpg.JPG. I notice the 'image' page currently specifies that the image is unlicensed for use on Wikipedia and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable under fair use (see our fair use policy).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any fair use images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Fritz S. (Talk) 14:46, 26 November 2006 (UTC)

License tagging for Image:DorisKenyon1.jpg.JPG[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:DorisKenyon1.jpg.JPG.

Lars Larsen[edit]

Bleh, more bad news. Lars Larsen has been proposed for deletion. An editor felt this person might not be notable enough for an article. Please review Wikipedia:Notability (people) for the relevant guidelines. If you can improve the article to address these concerns, please do so.

If no one objects to the deletion within five days by removing the "prod" template, the article may be deleted without further discussion. If you remove the prod template, the article will not be deleted, but if an editor is still not satisfied that it meets Wikipedia guidelines, it may still be sent to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.

Images[edit]

Hi Robert,

I thought I'd drop by a leave you a message regarding some of the images that you have uploaded. Firstly, all fair use images must have a fair use rationale. Any fair use image that doesn't have a rationale explaining why it may be used on Wikipedia is subject to deletion. Please take a look through your contributions and add a rationale to any image that needs one. Second, please note that fair use images may only be used in limited circumstances. One of these limitations is that only the bare minimum of fair use images may be used on an article. So two fair use images showing an image of a person on the same article isn't allowed. Thirdly, please also be aware that fair use images are only allowed to be used for articles. Any fair use images on userpages, talk pages, etc must be removed. Image:CaroleLombard3.jpg falls under this and needs to be removed from your userpage as soon as possible.

I know this sounds like a lot of work to fix, and it is, but it is an essential part in making Wikipedia a free encyclopedia. If you need any help, feel free to drop me a message on my talk page. Thanks and have a good new year. --PS2pcGAMER (talk) 10:56, 30 December 2006 (UTC)

Elaine Hammerstein[edit]

Hello. I work at the Bryn Mawr College Alumnae Association. I was recently reading your article on Elaine Hammerstein and noticed that she graduated from Bryn Mawr. After perusing our alumnae database, old year books, and colleagues' memories, I was able to find no record of Elaine ever attending Bryn Mawr College. Could you please tell me where you found the information that she attended Bryn Mawr? 165.106.153.178 16:34, 5 February 2007 (UTC)

Hi,

Yes the information is in the Sunday edition of the Indianapolis Star, September 10, 1922, Page 77. The sentence says that she graduated from Bryn Mawr in 1913 at the age of 17! Perhaps I can send you a PDF if you desire.

Best, Robert--Robert 17:31, 5 February 2007 (UTC)

It would be great if you could send me the pdf. Thanks! 165.106.153.178 18:02, 7 February 2007 (UTC)

Edith Day[edit]

I saw that you did a lot of work on this article, and that someone recently deleted a lot of info. Take a look if you have time, and see what you think. Best regards, -- Ssilvers 19:02, 8 February 2007 (UTC)

Many thanks, I believe that I noticed the new deletions a while ago but have not gotten back to it. It's really ashame when references are removed, as I always include them when I add articles. Stay in touch, Sincerely --Robert 20:29, 8 February 2007 (UTC)

Formatting[edit]

I stumbled over some of your articles and enjoyed reading them. I have a few suggestions: use "–" (i.e. ) instead of hyphens when giving ranges of dates (you will find this and other information in Wikipedia:Manual of Style (biographies)). Newspaper names should be in italics, and article names enclosed in quotation marks (see Wikipedia:Manual of Style (titles)). You can check out Lillian Sinnott (or look at featured biographical articles, where you can also learn how to use footnotes rather than a plain list for references). Rl 09:39, 22 April 2007 (UTC)

Lillian Adelaide Neilson[edit]

Hi, while working on the Neilson disambiguation page I realised that there were two articles about the same actress—the other (older and longer) one to be found at Adelaide Neilson. I have turned the page you created into a redirect and copied the article onto Talk:Adelaide Neilson. From there, it should be possible to incorporate those bits of information from your article which the other one may be lacking.

All the best, <KF> 20:51, 1 May 2007 (UTC)

Talk:Paula Stone[edit]

Hello, Robert ... Sorry if my evil twin was a little abrupt or rude concerning the edit conflicts on this article, but that comes from sitting at the keyboard for Too Long in one session. :-)

Speaking of Too Long, you might want to look into archiving some of the comments on this page ... I took the liberty of adding a {{talkheader}} (and some cleanups of the earliest posts to improve readability) to make it easier to add new topics with the special link it provides.

Have a better one! —72.75.73.158 13:02, 6 May 2007 (UTC)

Please also make sure if you have not already done so that you write a good description of what the image depicts, when you took the photo, and other important details. This will allow Wikipedia to continue using the image.

If you did not create the image or if it is derived from the copyrighted works of others, please keep in mind that most images on the internet are copyrighted and are not suitable for use on Wikipedia.

Notability of De Sacia Mooers[edit]

Information icon.svg

Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on De Sacia Mooers, by Flyne, another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. The tag claims that it should be speedily deleted because De Sacia Mooers seems to be about a person, group of people, band, club, company, or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not assert the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

To contest the tagging and request that administrators wait before possibly deleting De Sacia Mooers, please affix the template {{hangon}} to the page, and put a note on its talk page. If the article has already been deleted, see the advice and instructions at WP:WMD. Please note, this bot is only informing you of the nomination for speedy deletion, it did not nominate De Sacia Mooers itself. Feel free to leave a message on the bot operator's talk page if you have any questions about this or any problems with this bot. --Android Mouse Bot 2 05:32, 7 June 2007 (UTC)

Reference for Andrea de Cesaris[edit]

Hi Robertg9. You recently added "Lauda, Driving a McClaren, Captures Long Beach Grand Prix, New York Times, April 5, 1982, Page C2." as a reference for Andrea de Cesaris. I just wanted to check how the referenced article spells "McLaren" - do they spell it correctly (i.e. "McLaren") or as you have written it ("McClaren")? If it's "McClaren" then we probably need to note that in the article, or else people will "correct" it. -- DH85868993 03:45, 11 June 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for the note, it was merely a mistake on my part as I checked and they do spell it McLaren, I will return and change it, Sincerely, Robert
Another tip for when adding references. The idea of giving a reference a name is so that you can reuse the reference within the same article without having to specify the reference in full again - have a look at the changes I made to Harry Schell to see what I mean. Keep up the good work! -- DH85868993 03:31, 12 June 2007 (UTC)

Jean Behra[edit]

Hi, I am adding some to the Jean Behra article. I wanted you to know that the June 2, 1957 NYT article spells his name Behre. Also, thanks for the tip on the footnotes, multiple usage, Sincerely, Robert


Hi, I was editing John Behra and Wikipedia had server difficulties. When I saved the information the bottom portion with the Grand Prix summary and categories had been deleted. Can you fix this? I am sorry if I did something to cause this. Best from Robert

Hi Robert. I've fixed it. When you referenced the "death" reference the second time, you forgot the slash, i.e. you wrote "<ref name=death>" instead of "<ref name=death/>". Easy mistake to make. Regards. DH85868993 04:03, 13 June 2007 (UTC)

Category:<nationality> people[edit]

Hi Robert. I've noticed that you've added the "<nationality> people" category to some of the F1 driver articles you have updated (for example, you added Category:American people to Richie Ginther). As a general rule, if an article is already in the "<nationality> racecar drivers" or "<nationality> Formula One drivers" category, we don't add the "<nationality> people" category unless the driver is also notable for something other than being a racing driver. On that basis, are you happy for me to remove Category:American people from Richie Ginther? DH85868993 12:19, 13 June 2007 (UTC)

Cool, I'll remove the category from Ginther and others. I agree with you about Schell and de Portago - I'll leave those two. DH85868993 13:00, 13 June 2007 (UTC)

Brett Lunger[edit]

Has that fixed it? DH85868993 07:19, 4 July 2007 (UTC)

Thanks, has fixed aside from not showing Hesketh 1976 in categories.--Robert 08:27, 4 July 2007 (UTC)

Hi Robert. I'm not sure I understand what you mean by that. The only categories I can see listed in the article are Category:1945 births, Category:Living people, Category:American racecar drivers and Category:American Formula One drivers. Were you expecting there to be another one? DH85868993 10:59, 4 July 2007 (UTC)

Hi DH,

Sorry I meant the headings in the sections of the article, which now have been fixed o.k. The Hesketh section was missing for some time.

Best from Robert--Robert 02:24, 5 July 2007 (UTC)

Notability of Fred Cummings (veteran)[edit]

A tag has been placed on Fred Cummings (veteran), requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article appears to be about a person, group of people, band, club, company, or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not assert the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that you can assert the notability of the subject, you may contest the deletion. To do this, add {{hangon}} on the top of the page (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag) and leave a note on the article's talk page explaining your position. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would confirm the subject's notability under Wikipedia guidelines.

For guidelines on specific types of articles, you may want to check out our criteria for biographies, for web sites, for bands, or for companies. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. Giggy UCP 00:08, 18 July 2007 (UTC)

Helen Gilmore[edit]

Hi! You seem to have provided most of the text of the Helen Gilmore article. It looks like there may be some confusion between two different actresses named Helen Gilmore, apparently also sharing an IMDB entry; see Talk:Helen Gilmore. If you happen to still have access to the original sources cited in the article, could you please double-check that the Helen Gilmore born in 1900 could have plausibly been playing a Head Nurse in Too Much Business (1922) or Mrs. Hobbs in A Petticoat Pilot (1918)? Thanks, Hqb 19:42, 2 August 2007 (UTC)

Oh great, from the PDF you posted below, it seems we may have a third Helen Gilmore. She, too, seems too young to play some of the roles attributed to her in the IMDB. This is starting to look pretty hopeless. Hqb 07:43, 3 August 2007 (UTC)
BTW, I have enabled 'Email this user' in my profile, if you want to send me anything, like you offered. But if it's inconclusive, please don't worry about it. I have no particular interest in Ms. Gilmore; I just happened across the article at random. Maybe we should just tag it as needing verification. Hqb 07:52, 3 August 2007 (UTC)

Notability of Gillis MacGill[edit]

Information icon.svg

Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on Gillis MacGill, by another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. The tag claims that it should be speedily deleted because Gillis MacGill seems to be about a person, group of people, band, club, company, or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not assert the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

To contest the tagging and request that administrators wait before possibly deleting Gillis MacGill, please affix the template {{hangon}} to the page, and put a note on its talk page. If the article has already been deleted, see the advice and instructions at WP:WMD. Feel free to contact the bot operator if you have any questions about this or any problems with this bot, bearing in mind that this bot is only informing you of the nomination for speedy deletion; it does not perform any nominations or deletions itself.

Replaceable fair use Image:CarmelMyersbw.jpg[edit]

Replaceable fair use

Thanks for uploading Image:CarmelMyersbw.jpg. I noticed the 'image' page specifies that the image is being used under fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first fair use criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed image could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this image is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the image description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original Replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace the fair use image by finding a freely licensed image of its subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or a similar) image under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our fair use criteria. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, fair use images which could be replaced by free-licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if not used in an article), per our Fair Use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Calliopejen1 21:01, 6 October 2007 (UTC)

I am curious as to what is a "nose drop bottler"? Stellar (talk) —Preceding comment was added at 11:57, 15 January 2008 (UTC)

I am unfamiliar with the term, but obviously he must have been involved in putting nose drops in a bottle.

Maud Molko[edit]

Hi, I'm part of WikiProject Fashion. I saw the page you created about Maud Molko. I was wondering, what made you choose to create a page about that person? Is there a particular reason? For all I know she worked a little back in 2004 but since then she didn't do much? Thanks for your time anyways. Thiste (talk) 18:52, 5 March 2008 (UTC)

Hi,
I have a modelling blog at http://www.fashionmodelgossip.blogspot.com I was looking at some modelling pages and came across her photos. I saw that she has acting aspirations also. Yes, I think it was "Hint" where I found her images first. Unsure what my reason for selecting is, aside from her very natural appearance. Do you have anything on Carolin Hoppe, the German model? I found her at the FashionModelDirectory, ModelWerk, and Take 2.
I can't seem to find a date of birth, place of birth, or even a brief profile. I wrote a brief entry on her this morning. Her pics in Maxi look awesome, I wish I could obtain a few images I could save to my desktop. Thanks for writing, Best from Robert--Robert (talk) 19:03, 5 March 2008 (UTC)
Well, if you are referring to this page, maybe you could have seen that it was dated august 2004, and she hasn't done much since then (read, nothing). While she has worked for Marc Jacobs and has an FMD page, that doesn't secure her the notability to create a wikipedia article about her. Again, not working on anything significant for four years is a good indicator of non-notability, let alone the infamous google test that reaches a mere 416 hits, which is clearly too low to be considered notable. I've seen pages with as much as 6000 hits get filed for deletion.
If I had an advice for you, it would be to check twice (or ten times) before creating an article. Not every model out there deserves one. You should make sure the person has a significant career both in proeminance of work and in durability. For this, I advise you to read WP:BIO to learn a bit about notability of people.
In consequence of all this, I have to tell you this article will be filed for deletion. And probably any other model article you might have created that might not be considered notable enough. You will be able to make a case for the article of course since this process takes one week to complete.
I'm sorry for this as I'm sure you didn't mean to do bad but this is an encyclopedia, not a database of all things and/or people in the world. Thiste (talk) 17:40, 6 March 2008 (UTC)

Hi , Thanks for creating an entry on the beautiful Lotta Faust. Im sure you agree with me she died way to soon at the age of 29.

Maybe you'll stumble across Mabel Barrison(1886-1912) or Marie Booth Russell(d. 1911). Take care. Keep those posts coming. One thing, are you sure Gail Kane was born in 1892?

Silent film actress Betty Morrissey[edit]

Due to your interest I suggest a research of Betty Morrissey an actress scarcely mentioned in the web. She worked with Charlie Chaplin (in The gold rush, The circus, A woman in Paris)and in other films, apparently died at 36 in 1944 and is impossible to find a single image of her and more of her life. Have you got more informations and photos? (or know where to look at...) Best Regards Raffaele Fragapane (Italy) - panexpo@tiscali.it - 80.104.45.198 (talk) 14:35, 10 April 2009 (UTC)

New York companies[edit]

You will have to do more work on stubs such as Klareco Textile and Titanine, Incorporated. Why are they notable? What contribution did either of them make to New York City cultural history? — RHaworth (Talk | contribs) 17:51, 9 August 2009 (UTC)

Klareco Textile was a part of the Silk Centre, which I have created an article about earlier. I linked the article. Titanine, Inc., I am currently looking for more info. on. The addresses which these businesses occupied make them noteworthy, period. This is Manhattan and its history is very significant to Wiki users, geneaologists, urban historians, etc. Being away from NYC is somewhat of a disadvantage, although the NY Times and WSJ databases here at Duke are very helpful. Some of what I am looking for is not available on the internet, but most likely at the NYPL. I'll keep trying.Robert (talk) 04:22, 11 August 2009 (UTC)
The article on Klareco was copied to User:Robertg9/Klareco_Textile for you to work on. -- Alexf(talk) 10:31, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

Are you seriously claiming that just because the company had an address on Madison Avenue, it is automatically notable? Would it be OK for me to create articles for every company that has ever traded on Oxford Street? For Titanine, you gave no address so even that argument does not apply. — RHaworth (Talk | contribs) 14:06, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

So we have a difference of opinion, but I maintain my argument that it is noteworthy, to some extent, because of being in Manhattan. Not only because it is more likely to be added to by different authors, but also because more people will want to know about it. People worked there, they did financial transactions, and it is also important historically, in being a defunct financial business, which could not make it during the Great Depression.Robert (talk) 17:12, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

==Speedy deletion nomination of August Brentano==

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on August Brentano 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), 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.

Gloria Eves[edit]

Hi. I noticed that you created a new article on Gloria Eves but, having read over it and does some searching, it seems that she might be a case of WP:BLP1E: she has no notability outside of this one incident, which is the focus of her entire article. In fact her article barely covers the subject itself. It may be better as a redirect to Bo Belinsky with all that information placed there. Otherwise, it's likely to be deleted given Wikipedia's policies on living people. What do you think? Cheers, CP 23:47, 22 March 2010 (UTC)

I think it's debatable because although Eves is not very important as a person aside from the incident, the altercation itself has bearing on Belinsky's career, which took a turn for the worse afterward. Also there is importance because of the violence toward women and in particular its having been perpetrated by an athlete. If you want to merge it with Belinsky it is fine. I am wary that if some of the baseball committee sees it they will eliminate it. The repercussions on Belinsky are not obvious to those who have not read extensively about him. Thanks for your post--Robert (talk) 16:52, 23 March 2010 (UTC)

Whoops, forgot about this. I'll have a look at it again tomorrow and integrate it properly into the Belinsky article, and the keep an eye out to make sure that no one simply removes it without discussion. Canadian Paul 02:58, 27 March 2010 (UTC)
Okay, finally went ahead and did this. Please let me know if there's trouble and I'll come discuss it with the editors. Now, however, I'm concerned about Roxana Sand, who also seems non-notable outside of her one incident, again a WP:BLP1E problem. Trouble with this one is that I wouldn't know where to merge it to... Canadian Paul 05:57, 19 April 2010 (UTC)

Roxana Sand might perhaps go under King Levinsky as he was a well-known boxer of the era. In fact this might be the reason there has thusfar been no attempts to delete RS.--Robert (talk) 19:16, 19 April 2010 (UTC)

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, will be commencing a two-month trial at approximately 23:00, 2010 June 15 (UTC).

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under flagged protection. Flagged protection is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

MelanieN[edit]

Hello,

In the Louise Teuber AfD debate, you made some incorrect statemens about the nominator, MelanieN. You said she claimed to be a "veteran administrator" when in fact her user page correctly says that she is a "veteran editor", defined as an editor with more than 8000 edits and at least two years of service. With 8277 edits, she qualifies. You said that she shows "little talent in writing" implying that she specializes in deleting content rather than creating it. Her edit history shows that she has created lots of new content, as you have yourself. You objected to the deletion debate process, stating that once MelanieN had nominated the article, there is "no chance that it will remain". This is incorrect. I have participated in hundreds of deletion debates where the article was kept. Those were articles about notable topics, and in many cases, the articles were improved, expanded and referenced during the course of the debate. You may want to consider withdrawing your factually inaccurate assertions about MelanieN.

In this case, out notability guideline WP:VICTIM, a product of consensus, indicates that this particular biography in its current form and with its current title, does not belong on Wikipedia. However, an article on a series of unsolved San Diego 1930s murders, presumably by the same killer, may well be justified by policy and guidelines. I recommend that you userfy the current article and incorporate the content into such a future article. Instead of offering little more than harsh criticism of the editor who nominated this article for deletion, why not assume that she was acting in good faith, respond to the policy concerns raised in the debate, and consider how an article about these murders might be written that honors Wikipedia's policies and notability guidelines.

Marjorie Montgomery[edit]

Hi. I noticed that you started the Marjorie Montgomery article and have her listed as both a child actress and a fashion designer. I am wondering, however, if the sources you use make an explicit connection between the two being the same person, because I cannot find any online sources that do so, and some contradict the idea that they are one and the same. For example this source says that she was born in Rockford, Illinois in 1913, not Sikeston, Missouri in 1912. Of course, this site could very much incorrect, but I'm just curious if the offline sources you used made the connection... Canadian Paul 20:39, 2 June 2012 (UTC)

Hello Paul,

It's been awhile on this article. I no longer have access to the Ohio reference which I used. The LA Times sources I do have access to still. I will check some more for you.Robert (talk) 04:49, 3 June 2012 (UTC)

Hugh Keough Article[edit]

Hello,

I deleted the word "embiotic" from Hugh Keough's cause of death. After researching it, I could find no definition of, or reference to, the term "embiotic pneumonia". If I am wrong, please tell me where you found such a condition. - Michael David (talk) 15:02, 7 July 2012 (UTC)

Made an article a redirect[edit]

Hi! Just a brief note to say that I have made your short article Glen Miller (White Supremacist) a redirect, since I found a more comprehensive article under the guy's full name. It seemed to me that the information in your article was covered in the other article.

Fashion related articles[edit]

Hi Robertg9, I just wanted to let you know that I nominated your article Bruyere Suit for deletion (although I would strongly encourage you to create an article for Madame Bruyere herself) as a Bruyere suit simply means any suit designed by that designer. While doing so, I also came across your article Dormoy Suit, similar issue, but decided to simply redirect that to Marcelle Dormoy and turn it into a biographical article on the designer. I see you've created articles for other fashion related topics, such as Jester blouse and Harlequin print, which seem slightly contrived as subjects for articles although certainly worthy of mention in biographical articles on their designers. For instance, an article on the designer Louella Ballerino would be more useful than articles on individual garments she designed unless they are in themselves particularly notable or have become common terms (which harlequin print certainly has, although I'm not sure "jester blouse" has.) Seriously though, they're not bad articles, I think their focus is just a little bit misplaced, and there are certainly better articles in there that need to be extracted.

William B. Draper[edit]

Hello, thanks for creating this article. It has been tagged for notability for 4 years. I've just removed this, but without more sources, it is in danger of others re-adding it or prodding it. Can you look it over and see if you can help prove it meets WP:NOTABILITY? Best wishes, Boleyn (talk) 08:27, 21 February 2013 (UTC)

Yes, of course it does. The Collector of the Port of New York was once the most important politically appointed job in New York state. Chester A. Arthur, U.S. President from 1881-1884, was a former holder of the office. Best Robert.Robert (talk) 01:29, 8 March 2013 (UTC)
