Cherry Hill/Colestown

Thanks for enlightening me on Colestown being subsumed by Cherry Hill. And thanks for teaching me a new word. If you'll excuse me now, I have to go and subsume some pizza.--Hokeman 04:08, 11 April 2006 (UTC)

As a door might say in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, "Glad to be of service." :-) I know the Colestown cemetary area pretty well myself; my sister lives near there. Rpresser 16:47, 11 April 2006 (UTC)

Inexplicable edit to Dick

The reason is that Wikipedia is not a dictionary and disambiguation pages are no exception. WP:NOT#Wikipedia_is_not_a_dictionary, WP:MOSDAB. Perhaps I should have used a better edit summary, I'm investigating that at the moment.--Commander Keane 06:57, 28 April 2006 (UTC)

Your second edit is acceptable to me and in fact I agree that it improves the organization. (Thanks for taking out Moby Dick too.) I just objected to the first one because it completely eliminated the List of people named Dick link. I am editing it now though trivially to remove word "by" in the link.

Lafayette Chorduroys Edit

Hello. First of all, the page is absolutely not a "vanity" page. Just because it is about a topic which you may not know about, does not mean it is vanity. Also, you are making an edit to something which you have little knowledge about. The word "premiere" states nothing about the quality of the group, simply that it is the only all-male a cappella group (and therefore the best) on the campus. Please stop changing it. this unsigned comment was added by User:Yankeesmarc923

Comparison words are meaningless when the population is a single object. You could just as well say that the Lafayette Chorduroys are the most murderous, violent group on campus, since they are the only such group. Please read WP:NPOV and get a clue. I took an interest in your drek because you tried to claim Chords as if its sole meaning was a nickname for your precious a capella group. Wisely you have not tried to repeat that mistake. --Rpresser 13:44, 6 June 2006 (UTC)

Are you kidding me? According to Webster's Dictionary, Premiere, adj. First or paramount; premier. There is NOTHING wrong with saying we are the first male group. Thanks, but I have a clue.this unsigned comment also was aadded by User:Yankeesmarc923, who does not seem to have any clue how to sign his edits.

If you meant "first", why not write "first"? Answer: because you don't mean "first", you mean "best" -- a POV statement. Go ahead, prove me wrong: change it to first. ==Rpresser 18:50, 6 June 2006 (UTC)

  • Fine, revert my edits! But why do you need a WTHK article if the WJJZ article has exactly the same information? When I redirected the WTHK page to WJJZ, I made sure that all information was copied properly. Usually, radio stations are kept by frequency, and articles are named for the current callsign on that frequency. All previous callsigns, including WTHK are included in WJJZ, but I'll stop trying for awhile, because I know you'll just revert it.
  • I am happy to have my smooth jazz back. Petition MGK to play better stuff.
  • OK. I guess it is correct to leave WTHK as its own article (at least until someone else picks up the callsign. WJJZ is a new station entirely. The only thing the two stations shared was the frequency.
  • Thanks for the userbox, I'll add it. I wasn't planning to keep all the userboxes, though! I just put all the ones that applied to me on the page, I was going to get rid of some.
  • Well, if we make WTHK redirect to WJJZ, then they won't have any trouble realizing that 97.5 is now WJJZ. If they look at the table of contents, they well see that information about The Hawk comes before WJJZ. It seems like that's what most radio stations are doing, and it is the best solution. If they try to search for it, they will still be directed to the information without any trouble.

Necessity of Independent Dowry death article

You have merged the Dowry death article to Bride burning. Bride burning is only a small percentage of Dowry deaths (a large percentage of which are suicides). Indian National Crime Bureau lists dowry deaths as a crime[1] and it does not list a crime category called Bride burning. I suggest merging of Bride burning to Dowry death and then we can expand it together to cover other categories of dowry deaths in the article on Dowry death.Newageindian 05:55, 15 January 2007 (UTC)

Messianic Judaism edit problem

{{helpme}} I made an edit to Messianic Judaism, then decided I didn't want it. I tried Undo and Revert and editing a prior revision, but they are all being ignored. Database problem? Rpresser 21:00, 1 June 2007 (UTC)

Might have been but no worries..I ahve reverted it back to an Admins edit .. :)..--Cometstyles 21:08, 1 June 2007 (UTC)

Hi! This is Icarus!, being non-Wiki (I'm not logged in...), saying thanx for the work on the Discordianism page! Keep it up! 16:19, 19 August 2007 (UTC)

I'm suspicious. Maybe this is some kind of Operation MindFuck.
# I've never contributed to the Discordianism page that I know of, certainly not recently. I can't find any such contributions from me. Although I have enjoyed reading about it in the past, again not recently.
# Neither has User:Icarus ever contributed to Discordianism.
# The user history on shows over 50 other user pages touched with similar "Thanks for improving Discordianism" messages, all on the same day.
So, gentle {{helpme}} volunteer, is there anything to fear? Maybe he's just trying to drum up interest, but he's being kind of sneaky. Rpresser 18:00, 19 August 2007 (UTC)
Nothing to worry about, looks like he's just being very friendly from his contribs! I had a look at your contribs and all I can see that links you to Discordianism is a contribution ot its talk page on 22 March 2006! Hopes this clears things up! Andyreply 18:09, 19 August 2007 (UTC)
Ah. I'd completely forgotten about that talk page comment. Guess that's how he found me. Thanks. Rpresser 18:21, 19 August 2007 (UTC)
Icarus Again -- yes, that was me -- I saw the note you left on my page. It was an interestng experiment --it got my computer temporarily banned for "randon messages", when there was nothing random about them.
I've been very active on MySpace lately, in the wake of Wilson's death. the community there seems more to my taste, and yes, it was just being friendly and letting people know their interest was appreciated.
I HAD started becoming involved in Wikipedia, and I probably will again -- there's a few projects I started, and I don't want to go back on my promise to Maggie Thompson to do something her with her late husband Don Thompson. Also, Mark Gruenwald (whose Capt. America shield, whcih sat in his office while he was writing the charcter now resides on Stephen colbert's set) deserves more recognition.
Part of the reason I got out of here was seeing how some members of the Wold Newton community were treated after a LOT of hard work. Admittedly, a lot of them were going overboard in including everything that someone had included on a web site, but their work deserved more consideration than they got. the idea of a Wold Newton Wikia came up with one of the Admins, but by then the damage had been done...
Anyway, best! (talk) 06:57, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

Joshua A. Norton

Please do not use "good-faith" rollback like that. I was cleaning up the external links to the article. I have no personal issues with Rotten and Kudzumonthly, but I removed them because we have a number of links to Emperor Norton biographies in the references section. There's no need to have a number of links that basically offer the same biographical details. Nishkid64 (talk) 20:03, 17 October 2007 (UTC)

Also, since the link had been removed twice, it would have been appropriate to open up a discussion on the talk page asking what the problem was. Nishkid64 (talk) 20:05, 17 October 2007 (UTC)
I've opened up a discussion on the talk page. Please participate. Thanks, Nishkid64 (talk) 20:11, 17 October 2007 (UTC)

Do you have a better version of Brazil-MOI-logo.svg to upload? The one you provded is missing almost all of the fine detail in the original, low-res version you linked to. Better a low-res, but accurate image than a vector image leaving out so much detail. Alvis (talk) 06:36, 31 January 2008 (UTC)

I've recommended that the NPOV tag be removed from this article. Do you concur? BingoDingo (talk) 18:26, 7 February 2008 (UTC)

Blood libel against Jews

Why did you remove my entry and called it vandalism [2]? If you translate it from russian - this is exactly what the flier [3] says:
"Eternal memory! Remember, o Christian Russian people, the name of the child Andrei Yuschinsky, tortured to death by the kikes (жидами). Christians, take care of your children!!! It will be the kikes' (жидовский) Passover on March 17." --Topk (talk) 16:22, 1 March 2008 (UTC)

anti-semitic me

yes, i did vandalize a few articles before, i appologize for that... but show me even one where i was anti-semitic? beverly thomson is, in my view, anti-israel and anti-american - how does saying this make ME anti-semitic?? --Topk (talk) 19:30, 29 February 2008 (UTC)


the flier [4] does contain the word "kike": russian word "жид", which appears twice, translates to "kike" in english
i just added a full translation of that anti-semitic flier, which appears only partially translated in the 'blood libel' article --Topk (talk) 19:30, 29 February 2008 (UTC)

RPI Wikipedia party

Hi there. I'm currently an undergraduate at RPI organizing a little Wikipedia get-together this Thursday from 2-6pm in the Nason classroom. The plan is to both introduce members of the RPI community who already contribute to Wikipedia, and also try and introduce more people to editing. I'm not sure if you're a student here, but if you're around you're welcome to come hang out. Check it out and let me know if you're interested. Thanks. -FrankTobia (talk) 16:34, 29 April 2008 (UTC)

Zugangserschwerungsgesetz's lack of sources

Hi, I noticed that you created Zugangserschwerungsgesetz, but listed no sources for the information contained in the article.

Unsourced information may be challenged and removed at any time, and articles that can't be verified are likely to be deleted. Guidance on how to cite your sources is available, and if you need any further help, feel free to leave a message on my talk page.--Unscented (talk) 14:31, 3 August 2009 (UTC)
