NRCA[edit]

the last edit didn't seem to work. the reference is not showing up. --AgnosticPreachersKid (talk) 15:40, 31 January 2008 (UTC)


Yeah this is the very first wikipedia article I've ever tried doing from scratch. I'm still trying to figure out some of the formatting for things like footnotes. I appreciate your help.


no problem. i've created 2 articles on my own and they are kinda crappy. i think i'm just going to stick to editing. did you see the message on the talk page for the school? p.s. did you go to this school? i think my high school used to play them. we played against RCA all the time and Friendship once in a while.--AgnosticPreachersKid (talk) 16:08, 31 January 2008 (UTC)


Yeah I did go to this school in 11th and 12th grade. And actually I went to RCA before that. Where did you go to school? I take it from your name you're agnostic now. I got ya beat, I'm an athiest. Guess those 14 years of Christian exucation just didn't take very well.


I went to Faith Christian Academy in Goldsboro. I know aloooot of agnostics and atheists that use to go to christian schools/colleges...most of my friends from college won't step foot in a church.--AgnosticPreachersKid (talk) 16:23, 31 January 2008 (UTC)

I remember going down to Faith for games at RCA. Yeah I'm with your friends, church is just about the last place I want to go.

I removed the brackets from the NCCSA because there is no article for them and it stands out in red. Are you planning on making an article?--AgnosticPreachersKid (talk) 16:50, 1 February 2008 (UTC)

I think it looks better as an acronym even though there is no article. And if you click on it you can still see the full name even though there is no article. Hopefully someone will do an article on it eventually.

Someone tagged the article with notability and pov. I removed the POV, but you need to add references in the article in order for the notability tag to be removed.--AgnosticPreachersKid (talk) 05:41, 2 February 2008 (UTC)
I'd suggest looking over the info you're copying and pasting from the school's website. Remove the POV material before adding the info to the article to avoid having the article tagged for POV. Also, I'd suggest doing this on the other articles like Raleigh Christian Academy, etc.--AgnosticPreachersKid (talk) 05:48, 2 February 2008 (UTC)

Linkadditions[edit]

Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia, one or more of the external links you added do not comply with our guidelines for external links and have been removed. Wikipedia is not a collection of links; nor should it be used for advertising or promotion. Since Wikipedia uses nofollow tags, external links do not alter search engine rankings. If you feel the link should be added to the article, please discuss it on the article's talk page before reinserting it. Please take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Thank you.

That link may have some interest here and there, but adding the same link to a large number of pages, especially where the info on the page linked to is not directly linked to the subject (it is an overview page of the archives), is certainly not according to our external links guideline. Please stop. --Dirk Beetstra T C 20:01, 12 March 2008 (UTC)

The link I was adding was to add a source for the information on the individual pages as someone tagged one of them for not giving any sources for the information. Also, on some of the pages the external link that was there no longer works and when you are undoing the new link you're reverting back to a link that no longer works. I don't want to violate the link policy, but I think this one link is very relevant and belongs on each individual tournament page.— Preceding unsigned comment added by Rreagan007 (talkcontribs)
When I click the link I don't get any direct information, I have to click on to find more about the subject (I refer to WP:EL#Links normally to be avoided, point 14). Indeed, there are no references in the document, but there must be directly relevant information, either on that server, or on news servers from the area. Hope this explains. --Dirk Beetstra T C 20:17, 12 March 2008 (UTC)
Ok well then can I assume that if I link to the page with the specific information directly instead of the main archive page that would be acceptable to you?{{subst:unsigned"|Rreagan007}}
That sounds like a good plan, though it might even be better to use it as a citation, see WP:CITE and WP:FOOT. Then it really attributes information in the document. Hope this helps, happy editing! --Dirk Beetstra T C 20:35, 12 March 2008 (UTC)

I am here to dispute your editing of the link to the UNC Global website (global.unc.edu). Both past UNC-CH Chancellor Moeser and current Chancellor Thorp have made it their mission to promote and grow UNC's reputation as a global university. UNC has one of the largest percentage of students studying abroad of any university in the nation and is an increasingly popular destination for foreign students and professors to visit. More importantly, however, one need only interact with the Carolina community to realize how well-versed and aware the student body is of current international affairs and how important their global education is to them. In order to reflect this aspect of the university, as well as promote the future direction of this great institution, I feel that a link to UNC Global is an integral addition to the UNC-CH wiki. I would very much like to hear your arguments otherwise before you remove the link. Thank-you very much - Rmitch3

Fair use rationale for Image:Unc.seal.blue.png[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Unc.seal.blue.png. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. 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 non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. NOTE: once you correct this, please remove the tag from the image's page.

Why do keep reverting to a poorer quality image? please stop. --Jerm (Talk/ Contrib) 23:58, 24 March 2008 (UTC)

The image is not poorer quality. If you compare the two, you will see that it's actually a better quality image. It's also in Carolina blue instead of black which is more authentic and is more aesthetically pleasing. Is there some reason you prefer the black seal to the Carolina blue one?
If you read the document that the image came from it is supposed to be black. Wikipedia is not for advertisement so your argument that it is "more aesthetically pleasing" is incorrect. --130.218.10.1 (talk) 17:39, 25 March 2008 (UTC)
I went back and read the source you were referring to, and it only specifies black if the seal is used to "indicate accomplishment in or on behalf of the University." That's not the use here. If you look at the other source for the blue seal here you will see that the university uses the seal in both black and blue. Since both colors have equal value in terms of authenticity and use, I think the fact that the blue seal looks better on the article page should tip the scale in its favor, unless you have a better reason to pick one over the other.

Image:Unc.seal.blue.png again[edit]

Please stop reverting. The version you seem to be reverting to has broken transparency, is the wrong shade of blue, is missing the registered trademark logo, and is not that approved by the University's licensing department. If you have a good reason why such a logo should be used, even though it may violate trademark and copyright laws, please discuss it on Image talk:Unc.seal.blue.png. Thank you.

Template:University of North Carolina[edit]

Non-free images are only allowed in the main article space, not in templates, unfortunately, so the shield you added has had to be removed. See WP:NONFREE policy #9. 152.2.133.109 (talk) 16:39, 28 May 2008 (UTC)

Manual of Style (dates and numbers): square brackets[edit]

Information.svg Please don't change the format of dates, as you did to University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Most British people and many people internationally write dates in day-month-year order, e.g., 12 December 1904. Most Americans use month-day-year order, e.g., December 12, 1904. If the article is about an American topic, use month-day-year. If it is a British or European topic, use day-month-year. If neither, leave it as originally written. Many Americans or British people take offence if an article about their country, written in their local version of English, is changed around to a version they don't use. So please do not do that.

Dates are usually enclosed in two square brackets, as in [[12 December]] or [[December 12]]. This means that you can set your preferences (if you look around your screen you'll see the word preferences; click on it and follow the instructions) to ensure that you see all dates in the format you want, whether date-month-year, month-date-year or yyyy-mm-dd. The general rules on how Wikipedia articles are written can be seen in the Wikipedia:Manual of Style. Rules specific to dates and numbers can be seen in the Wikipedia:Manual of Style (dates and numbers).

If you have any questions about this, ask me on my talk page, or place {{helpme}} on your talk page and someone will show up shortly to answer your questions. Enjoy your time on the web's fastest growing encyclopædia (or encyclopedia, if you write it that way!). Thank you. 152.2.133.109 (talk) 15:17, 4 June 2008 (UTC)

UNC article[edit]

Thanks for adding the bit about the pep bands. I just removed the words "Olympic sports" as you covered the scope with "26 other sports," so that we don't have to explain what Olympics sports mean (especially as basketball is in the Olympics, lacrosse isn't, and baseball won't be soon). Hope that was OK! Hippo (talk) 23:06, 18 June 2008 (UTC)

Sockpuppetry case[edit]

Puppeter template.svg

You have been accused of sockpuppetry. Please refer to Wikipedia:Suspected sock puppets/Rreagan007 for evidence. Please make sure you make yourself familiar with notes for the suspect before editing the evidence page. Newshounddog (talk) 02:33, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

Please respond to my request for clarification at the sockpuppet case page: Wikipedia:Suspected sock puppets/Rreagan007. Yechiel (Shalom) 03:16, 19 June 2008 (UTC)
I do not deny that I sometimes edit from that IP address instead of logging in, but I do not do that for bad purposes. Usually I either just forget to log in, or I have several different browsers open and I'm logged in on 1 browser and just don't remember to log into the other 1. I have looked at the talk page for the IP address and I do see the negitive stuff you are referring to. But none of the vandalism from this IP address was done by me. I did not even start editing wikipedia articles at all until January of this year, and the vandalism I saw was all from before that. I'm also not familiar with how IP addresses work, but it might be possible that more than 1 person shares this IP address. Again, I have never intentionally vandalised any wikipedia page, and none of the edits from this IP address could have been done by me before January 2008. If you have any questions about this for me please feel free to ask. Rreagan007 (talk) 15:01, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

Please see my closing comments at Wikipedia:Suspected sock puppets/Rreagan007. To clarify: if you want to stay logged in on multiple tabs or window when you edit, click on the "remember me" box when you login. That automatically logs you in even on tabs you have not yet opened on that computer, and avoids the situation where you are logged in to Wikipedia on one window but logged out on another window.

Second Amendment[edit]

I double-checked before reverting, but I took off your capitalizaton of "States". Capitalizing it is 18th century usage.

Happy editing!

Robert A.West (Talk) 15:08, 27 June 2008 (UTC)

Also, just for your information, "Types of regulation" is correct. English does not inflect adjectives and adjectival phrases as would, say, French or German. Thus, "Attorneys General," not "Attorneys Generals." Moreover, we are talking about "regulation" as an abstraction, which always takes an indefinite number: Laws against felons' possessing firearms are a type of regulation, even if that type comprises five laws and twenty administrative rules.

Again, Happy editing!

Robert A.West (Talk) 15:18, 27 June 2008 (UTC)

Your revisions to the Earth page[edit]

While I'm sure you meant well, your revisions to the image arrangement on the Earth page led to some issues on my browser. Aligning the image with the table resulted in an ugly displacement in my browser, so it was not an improvement. You also move the image showing the relative sizes of the planets out of the section where the size was being discussed. That was also unhelpful. I would greatly appreciate it if you could be more careful; this page has gone through a lot of massaging over time before it achieved a satisfactory look. Thank you.—RJH (talk) 15:11, 28 July 2008 (UTC)

Sorry for just jumping in like that and changing stuff around. I can see you've done a lot of work on astronomy pages and the Earth page in particular, so I will certainly defer to your judgment on this. However, the reason I tried to rearrange some of the images on the Earth page was because the page looked extremely haphazard in its arrangement, especially for a featured article. I know the article is very well written, but I still think having the 2 pictures and 2 tables in the arrangement they're in now does not look very good. Perhaps the pictures and tables could go on top of each other instead of side by side? I leave it for you to decide. Rreagan007 (talk) 15:31, 28 July 2008 (UTC)
Yes it's been difficult to come up with an ideal arrangement that both keeps the material with the subject matter and still avoids collisions at differing widths, font settings and browser types. Many different arrangements have been attempted. Thanks.—RJH (talk) 15:39, 28 July 2008 (UTC)

Greater Crested Tern[edit]

Twice now you have moved the sardine image from the beginning of the "Feeding" section to the end of the previous section, claiming MOS. This puts the image in the wrong section and pushes the "Feeding" header from left alignment to an ugly mid-page position (in FF3). I can't believe that even MoS dictates which section an image should be in, if it does, please give be a link.

Alternatively, and probably better, tell me what's wrong with the original position, with an MoS link, so that I can fix the problem myself without your doubtless well-intended but unhelpful moves. jimfbleak (talk) 15:57, 30 July 2008 (UTC)

thanks, I've lowered the sardines to after opening para, but kept left aligned so images still alternate. That should comply with MoS, but if an problems, let me know jimfbleak (talk) 16:50, 30 July 2008 (UTC)

He-Man Page[edit]

As discussed on Rror's talk page:

"Dude, my edits are the truth. I provided a reference. In issue #47 of DC Presents, Superman is sucked into Eternia (the He-Man universe) and goes galevanting about with He-Man. In issue #48, a brief biography of He-Man or Prince Adam is given and when asked of his mother's whereabouts he says "I don't know, probably on Mars selling astro turf"

Septimus1337 (talk) 10:51, 27 July 2008 (UTC)

change to unc page[edit]

hi, i readded my edits. i'm sorry, but we are now in a dispute. the public ivy part of the article is non-nuetral point of view unless properly cited. as you said, it's the only way to let people know it's a highly regarded state sponsored school. unfortunately, the wiki page is not a place to talk that up. that's more for marketing firms. here, on wiki, we just want to present the information accuratly and nuetrally. i did all the edits in good faith. you unedited them for your reasons. the abbreviations are accurate and how the school is listed in unc publications. there is no reason to leave them off. they are official and recognized by the board of governors. we can resolve the dispute a better way, than you just randomly taking the article and making how you want it. i'd really like to see it move to featured article. please note, it was not promoted to featured article. perhaps, because it was not nuetral enough. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Holla213 (talkcontribs) 13:20, 24 August 2008 (UTC)

Speer[edit]

Hi! Thanks for your recent edit of Speer. I do have two comments:

  • The text you used says "German: pronounced /ˈʃpær/", but the link is to IPA for English. Did you mean to give the English pronunciation (in which case, the text before the link should be changed), or did you mean to give the German pronunciation (in which case, the link, at least, should change)? Pardon my uncertainty on this point, as I have no expertise whatsoever with IPA but, Ich spreche und lese ein wenig vom Deutschen. I won't make a change, but encourage you to review and, if needed, correct or clarify your entry. Sorry again if I'm on the wrong track here.
    • Thanks for explaining things - it sounds good to me. Best regards,

--Joe Sperrazza (talk) 03:44, 27 October 2008 (UTC)

  • The text you replaced, "German "spear", in my opinion, did have value. I'm putting that information (in a slighty different form [1]), into the article.

Good day. I just noticed that you added a unreferenced section tag at Canada#Provinces and territories.

Thanks for uploading Image:Wcsr logo.png. You've indicated that the image is being used under a claim of fair use, but you have not provided an adequate explanation for why it meets Wikipedia's requirements for such images. In particular, for each page the image is used on, the image must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Can you please check

  • That every article it is used on is linked to from its description page.

Hello... FYI, your edit has been reverted again. If the discussion concludes with an agreement that it should be in bold, I'll certainly accept that.

Spider-Man[edit]

You don't have to be a major contributor to nominate an article, or a set of articles, for any rank. Actually, you don't have to have contributed at all. If you believe in the articles, then go ahead an nominated them for Good Topic status. The only article I have substantially worked on is Spider-Man 3. The first film article I worked a bit, but I left after some disagreement with a supposed "producer" (or whomever) came to Wikipedia and started terrorizing the page with his horrible grammar while he tried to "correct" all the mistakes. I haven't worked on the second one that much either, nor the "film series" page. I made some contribs, but not that many. I'm not really aware of the shape of any of those articles, behind SP3. If you think they're good enough, then you should go ahead and nominate them.  BIGNOLE  (Contact me) 03:06, 3 December 2008 (UTC)

That's not a valid oppose. There is no policy, guideline, or even an essay that says you need "the blessing of the contributors" for such a nomination. It's "nice" to do, but there is no obligation as they don't own the articles in question. I don't want to nominate them because I haven't read them in a long time, and I don't have the time right now (end of the school semester) to re-read them all and check to make sure they still meet the GA criteria. That, and be the one to monitor the GT nomination. If you nominate I'll keep an eye on it and rebut anyone that claims you need "major contributor approval".  BIGNOLE  (Contact me) 03:50, 3 December 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Dick Baddour[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Dick Baddour 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 about a person, organization (band, club, company, etc.) or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, 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 article 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 article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the article does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that a copy be emailed to you. FlyingToaster 20:42, 11 December 2008 (UTC)

Disputed fair use rationale for File:Ruby Supernatural.jpg}[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Ruby Supernatural.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this image under "fair use" may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content. This can be corrected by going to the image description page and add or clarify the reason why the image qualifies for fair use. In particular, for each page the image is used on, the image must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Can you please check:

  • That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's escription page for each article the image is used in.
  • That every article it is used on is linked to from its description page.

Please be aware that a fair use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for images used under the fair use policy require both a copyright tag and a fair use rationale.

If it is determined that the image does not qualify under fair use, it might be deleted by adminstrator within a few days in accordance with our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions, please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you. NOTE: once you correct this, please remove the tag from the image's page.

33.333333% = 1/3[edit]

Or, to point something else out, it's 1/3 that the topics are actually getting promoted/demoted on, not 33%.

Burgled[edit]

Another Wikipedia article that states, unsupported, that something is "British English" is not valid criteria or proof.

Iconization of trademark logos[edit]

Rreagan, the iconization of logos is not permitted per the last paragraph of WP:MOSLOGO. That guideline is pretty unequivocal. It's fine to use the logo in full form, but to reduce it into a tiny icon is against the guideline. You're taking a logo from it's full size and reducing its pixel coverage 87% into an icon. As the guideline says, "Use of such images as icons is nearly always prohibited".

I don't have a problem with the NC logo being used in appropriate places. The university's sports logo is not appropriate for the infobox on the entire university. That's effectively saying that the sports department is more important than any other department within the university. The various different highly regarded programs at NC Chapel Hill (see here for just one school) would be highly insulted at that. It would be akin to putting the Marlboro logo on the infobox for the Altria article. It isn't necessary for people to understand what article they arrived at, it's mis-representative of the entire university, and it violates our guideline. There's really no wiggle room here. I'm sorry. --Hammersoft (talk) 13:24, 2 October 2009 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for File:ACC_Champ_blank.png[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:ACC_Champ_blank.png. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use. Suggestions on how to do so can be found here.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

Willy-willy[edit]

Hi - I'm just writing in order not to get into further edit warring over the term "willy-willy". Your citation for the meaning "tropical cyclone" is out of date; after following your reference, it turns out the National Weather Service's glossary states that the term "willy-willy" was "formerly used to denote a tropical cyclone" (my emphasis). Also, AerospaceWeb notes that the term has not been used for tropical cyclones in Australia since the 1930s. At the very least, Willy-Willy should redirect to Dust devil, with a disambiguation note at the top, such as the following:

Official Abbreviation of University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill[edit]

You keep on reverting UNC-Chapel Hill's abbreviation to UNC, on the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill's page and the University of North Carolina when all the data I see for it, officially is UNC-Chapel Hill, the chancellor changed it from UNC-CH[1], what it had been before. I think you missing that yes from 1789-1963 it was University of North Carolina, but around 1963, Chapel Hill changed its name to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Women's College of North Carolina changed its name to the University of North Carolina at Greensboro around 1963 as part of a renaming the UNC System. NC State also renamed it self from North Carolina State College of Agriculture and Engineering to the North Carolina State University at Raleigh around 1963. Yes Chapel Hill was generally considered to be UNC, though I haven't found a record of it officially using the UNC abbreviation, just unofficially being referred to as UNC. Also in 1971, the State of North Carolina passed legislation bringing into the University of North Carolina system all 16 public institutions that confer bachelor degrees, giving that, the name University of North Carolina. Really all the 16 public schools rename themselves as part of common naming scheme.

UnOfficially[edit]

Yes in sports, general conversation Chapel Hill is referred to as UNC or North Carolina or even Carolina, though South Carolina has just as much of a claim on it, but that is not its Official Abbreviation, name, or designation! Why you put UNC above the official abbreviation on the page University of North Carolina page is a mystery. It could be added to below with 'North Carolina' for 'UNC' and 'North Carolina' for athletics, yes. By the way that column was intend for official abberiation not sports abbreviations as the heading states.

Articles[edit]

I think you are this of the January 08, 2002 article as the last word when it says UNC-CH Chancellor James Moeser and University officials are trying to phase out the "UNC-CH" abbreviation in favor of the more specific "UNC-Chapel Hill," "UNC" or simply "Carolina.[2] But if go to the following article dated January 14, 2002 which it states Chancellor James Moeser's recent decision to drop the UNC-CH abbreviation in favor of a standardized "UNC-Chapel Hill" on all future UNC-CH documents...[3] you see the official abbreviation!

Lastly[edit]

If you find a later dated article stating a new official abbreviation, then it can be corrected, to the new abbreviation. I really don't care what they call themselves. I was just to trying to put the correct official information.

You are now a Reviewer[edit]

Wikipedia Reviewer.svg

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, is currently undergoing a two-month trial scheduled to end 15 August 2010.

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under pending changes. Pending changes 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. The list of articles with pending changes awaiting review is located at Special:OldReviewedPages.

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.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles (talk) 18:40, 19 June 2010 (UTC)

2010 "realignment"[edit]

Why do you think it's a joke? I seriously believe that it's not a realignment (there isn't a broken-apart conference; or a conference adding 4+ teams in one swoop), and that it really isn't that different from, say, 1992, which doesn't have its own conference expansion article. Here and on other Wikipedias, articles about more noteworthy articles have been nominated for deletion, and some were even deleted Purplebackpack89 15:32, 28 June 2010 (UTC)

Since you asked...I'm displeased at the ESPN media circus around the issue (earlier this month, it was all expansion, Steven Strasburg, and LeBron free agency); and that ESPN basically forced the Pac-10 to expand. I prefer the traditional West Coast Pac-10, not having some backwater school like Utah. I'm displeased that basically an ESPN media circus has created an article Purplebackpack89 15:43, 30 June 2010 (UTC)

Mystery[edit]

Please solve this mystery if you can...

On September 23rd, traffic to Portal:James Bond doubled, and has stayed at the new level since then. I can't figure out what happened.

See http://stats.grok.se/en/201109/Portal%3AJames_Bond

Traffic to Outline of James Bond stayed the same (though it was at the higher-level already), which leads me to suspect changes made somewhere in Wikipedia.

See http://stats.grok.se/en/201109/Outline%20of%20James_Bond

I'd like to find out what happened, in case it reveals helpful link placement tips that can double the traffic to outlines too!

Helm's Championships[edit]

If placed on team pages, it needs to be noted what the "championship" is. The Helms Athletic Foundation "champions", while evidently posted in media guides, are not even sanctioned as being legitimate according to the NCAA, reference the following article: Mythical national championship. The Kentucky basketball article mentions the Helm's championship in the article, but does not mention it as a legit championship in the info box. The issue here is not the awarding of the championship, but whether it is a legitimate championship being that only the NCAA tournament is officially counted toward team totals. For example, a case could be made for many NIT winners in the past as being the true champions since that tournament at one time typically had more teams, higher ranked teams, and was considered the more prestigious tournament. However, that is not the case. For example, Kentucky won the 1946 NIT, but can not count it as a National Championship even thought there is a good case for that.76.177.47.225 (talk) 01:21, 2 January 2012 (UTC)

It is clearly labeled as "Pre-tournament era champions". Rreagan007 (talk) 01:40, 2 January 2012 (UTC)
That doesn't make it official. It either counts or it doesn't. I can form a committee and declare anything I want to, doesn't mean it is official. If it going to be placed in the info guides there needs to be clarification.76.177.47.225 (talk) 02:38, 2 January 2012 (UTC)
It's useful information for readers to have in the infobox. If you feel that strongly about removing this content, you should bring it up at an appropriate forum and gain consensus that it should be removed. I suggest you bring it up somewhere like Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_College_Basketball. Rreagan007 (talk) 04:25, 2 January 2012 (UTC)
I agree that it is useful information. However, there needs to be a distinction of the legitimacy of it. The way it is written now on all articles is as if it was a true 100% champion. That is not the case, evident by the articles I cited and the reluctance of the NCAA to even allow it as such. Why can't it be under the listing of Helm's Championship? You do realize that award was given out up until 1982 don't you? The way it is written right now, the casual reader is led to believe that those were honest to goodness sanctioned championships that are allowed to count toward the championship total. That is certainly not the case.76.177.47.225 (talk) 05:09, 2 January 2012 (UTC)
I've gone ahead and changed the infobox parameter to specify it's the Helms championship. I don't think any other pre-tournament championships were being used in that parameter so it should be fine. I do realize they were given until 1982, however, almost every championship they awarded after the tournament began was the NCAA tournament champion, which is already listen in the infobox. And even though that's not the case in 4 years, once the tournament began, the tournament winner is by definition THE champion. Rreagan007 (talk) 05:28, 2 January 2012 (UTC)

Smallville[edit]

The table is redundant. The table of contents already lists the years of release for each season and provides a quick link to the home video releases. Having another table duplicate information like that is unnecessary. I've never visited a page where I looked at those "summary" tables and then left the page without looking further. I personally don't find them "helpful" because they don't actually provide anything unique. This is especially true here, where the table of contents already lists dates (because they are in each section header) and quick links to any other information you want.  BIGNOLE  (Contact me) 02:23, 7 June 2012 (UTC)

Your use of multiple Wikipedia accounts[edit]

Hi. An editor has opened an investigation into sockpuppetry by you. Sockpuppetry is the use of more than one Wikipedia account in a manner that contravenes community policy. The investigation is being held at Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/MrLeeWiki, where the editor who opened the investigation has presented their evidence. Please make sure you make yourself familiar with the guide to responding to investigations, and then feel free to offer your own evidence or to submit comments that you wish to be considered by the Wikipedia administrator who decides the result of the investigation. If you have been using multiple accounts (in a manner contrary to Wikipedia policy), please go to the investigation page and verify that now. Leniency is usually shown to those who promise not to do so again, or who did so unwittingly, but the abuse of multiple accounts is taken very seriously by the Wikipedia community.

LED-OLED-LCD et al[edit]

Hi,

Your recent good-faith edits to the Television article, which I reverted and you reinstated, introduced some wording into the lead that seemingly equates LCD displays with LED (as opposed to OLED) displays, and your recent edit summary suggests that you may harbor common misconceptions about both the terminology and the tech.

There are three categories of flat-panel video displays in public use:

  • LED: The first flat-panel type that most people ever saw, if they attended stadium events during the early to mid-1990s. The original implementation, using an array of discrete conventional LEDs, is very expensive and only practical for screens ranging from very large to gigantic. That technology is still in use and still far from being obsolete for very-big-screen television (read the short LED display article, the link to which was removed by your edits). Although the two may seem "completely different" to you (per your edit summary), and there certainly are chemical and structural differences, "OLED" (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) is in fact a subset of "LED" (Light-Emitting Diode), just as "organic chemistry" is a subset of "chemistry", which is not to in any way downplay the revolutionary emergence of OLED tech.
  • Plasma: Apart from pocket-size products, the first flat-panel TV to be available for consumer use. The display is an array of tiny cells of gases that glow red, green or blue when electrically stimulated. Not to be confused with either LED or LCD. Picture quality specs have traditionally blown away LCDs but the gap has narrowed and after nearly twenty years on the market plasma TVs are being discontinued.
  • LCD: The display proper is an array of cells which become more or less transparent in accordance with an applied electrical field. Not self-luminous, so sufficient light has to come from behind or be reflected back through the array by a reflective back coating. Sunlight or any other type of light source can be used. Fluorescent tubes were the universal backlight of choice when moderately high-resolution monitor-size LCD units finally reached the consumer market. When LED-backlit LCD displays were later introduced, they were widely advertised as "LED TVs" in a blatant attempt to make a beneficial innovation seem more revolutionary than it actually was and to provide ample opportunity for consumers to confuse them with the OLED displays which were then making a very-high-priced market debut. From an engineering perspective, as opposed to an advertising one, the product in question is no more an "LED TV" than a fluorescent-backlit LCD display is a "Fluorescent TV" (just try finding that in an ad for the original type) or one backlit by tungsten filament light bulbs would be an "Incandescent TV".

A summary treatment in the "Television" article's lead is obviously no place for a mini-treatise like the one above. It would be nice if a neat, unadorned recitation of the suitably linked terms "LED, plasma and LCD", which technically cover All Of The Above, would suffice, but evidently it does not. I intend to install the following version of the sentence in dispute, which may clarify and help to prevent future problems, after allowing a very brief interval for reasoned objections or suggested improvements:

"The replacement of bulky, high-voltage cathode ray tube (CRT) screen displays with compact, energy-efficient flat-panel alternatives such as fluorescent-backlit and LED-backlit LCD displays, Plasma displays, and true LED (including OLED) displays, was a major hardware revolution that began penetrating the consumer computer monitor market in the late 1990s and soon spread to TV sets."

Cheers, AVarchaeologist (talk) 03:52, 17 August 2014 (UTC)

Reply received. I like to massage my wording carefully to be as comprehensive as possible, but your rev remains factually correct and I can live with it, despite the (IMO) regrettable absence of a link to the LED display article — many readers are likely to be in the dark about what tech is used for those giant TV screens. I will install your revised version presently. AVarchaeologist (talk) 10:46, 17 August 2014 (UTC)

"US also 'ax'"[edit]

Hello. I don't want to fight with you, and I see your point with "American English", but "US also" is a very conventional way to indicate alternative spellings. If the article had originally been written by an American, its title might have been "Ax", and then the opening sentence might read, "An ax (or 'axe'; UK 'axe' only) is an implement . . . ." In a parenthesis like this, the aim usually is to express the parenthetical idea as concisely as possible, not necessarily in graceful phrases, and get on with the substantive matter. I'm not going to re-revert your edit, but don't be surprised if somebody else does.

Your latest revision also attempts to take into account the point I made earlier, that American English allows both "axe" and "ax", which I appreciate; but it still seems to say that the American spelling is "ax". You might change it to read, "(in American English also 'ax')", which would make it clearer (to my way of thinking, at any rate) that "ax" is an alternative spelling in AE as well.

NIT Bracket[edit]

Please do not change the NIT bracket back to a 32 team bracket. The NIT bracket it broken up into 4 quadrants with each quadrant named for the #1 seed. It is much like how the NCAA Tournament breaks their tournament into 4 different brackets. So to have it as a 32 team bracket just because it may "easier for a reader to understand" is false. Please take a few minutes and look at how it is set up on the previous NIT pages, even just last season here, 2014 National Invitation Tournament. There is no reason for the 2015 bracket to be any different from previous season brackets. Thank you. Bsuorangecrush (talk) 18:22, 10 March 2015 (UTC)

  • @Haminoon:No worries. It sincerely was accidental. Pronouns can sometimes be tricky, but I will try to be more mindful in the future, even if it is just in an edit summary. Rreagan007 (talk) 06:18, 2 June 2015 (UTC)

Don't template the regulars[edit]

Information.svg Ouch! You've used a template to send a message to an experienced editor. Please review the essay Wikipedia:Don't template the regulars or maybe listen to a little advice. Doesn't this feel cold, impersonal, and canned? It's meant in good humour. Best wishes. Skyerise (talk) 20:34, 2 June 2015 (UTC)

My talk page[edit]

Please stop posting on my talk page, it's clear your intent is to harass rather than to inform. Skyerise (talk) 20:37, 2 June 2015 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for August 1[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Space exploration, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Charon (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). 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.
