User:RdeVjun/Sandbox[edit]

Hi, many thanks for alerting me to the category problems in my sandbox. I was playing around with it a while back, probably got distracted halfway through something (in all honesty, I can´t really remember what it was that I was actually doing) and never got back to it. Anyway, I have fairly well lost interest in that particular article, so I cleared it out and life goes on! Cheers. RdeVjun (talk) 03:42, 6 April 2008 (UTC)

Horses[edit]

I've added a response at your ref desk question about horses, but thought I'd also point you in the direction of User:Montanabw who's active on the horse pages here, and has unfailingly responded to all my (very many) horse questions, and is just the person to keep your book's horses in order. Say I sent you: you'll get all the answers you want, and I'll get any blame owing for distracting her from WP editing! :) Gwinva (talk) 05:15, 10 June 2008 (UTC)

Thanks Gwinva :) Sandman30s (talk) 13:36, 10 June 2008 (UTC)

And...here I am! So, onto your questions:

  • Hi Montanabw, Gwinva pointed me to your expertise on horses. I recently posted a few questions on the language desk, but I received some satisfactory answers and don't really want to repeat them here. I've been writing a fantasy book and an important character in it is a unicorn that has a special relationship with the main character, a young wizard. I would like your opinion on how a unicorn should be 'handled'. I am currently writing about him as a magnificent white muscular horse with a spiral horn and a unique ability to be able to talk to this wizard telepathically (although I don't use that word specifically) in somewhat broken English. The unicorn, whom I call Shandar, sometimes whinnies in happiness, nuzzles up to the wizard to show affection, and raises his forelegs (is that called rearing?) when excited. He also has the ability to phase between light and solid so as to travel without touching the ground, for example fly over the ocean. There are other elements in the book, for example medieval cavalry and the general use of horses by farmers etc., so any pointers would be appreciated. Thank you! Sandman30s (talk) 13:46, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
  1. First off, some of your questions on general uses of horses in history can be answered in a couple wonderful articles Gwinva helped with, Horses in warfare and Horses in the Middle Ages. These are extensively researched and are Good articles by the wiki standard.
  2. Next, wiki has some other useful articles that may give you some basics that could help. They aren't perfect, but I helped get the blatently bad stuff out of them and so, to the best of my knowledge, what's in them is pretty accurate, if not made of sparkling prose! These include [[[horse behavior]], stallion (horse) (about boy horses), mare (horse) (about girl horses), and maybe horse training. I have had less to do (as in little or nothing) with cavalry, but there may be some useful stuff there. History of the horse in South Asia is another article I haven't worked on, but has some interesting stuff.
  3. As for rearing and such, you may want to compare rearing to levade, one is untrained behavior and the other is a very highly trained equestrian skill.
  4. I would be glad to answer any specific questions about "medieval cavalry" and "use of horses by farmers", and in particular, Gwinva and I did a bunch of research (which we haven't found a use for) on how far horses can travel, depending on whether they are with armies, ordinary travelers, endurance records, one day, day after day travel, etc. So toss out whatever you are wondering about and I can see what we can find. If it's horse behavior, ask me; if it's medieval history, ask Gwinva.
  5. Oh, also, to describe your unicorn, you may want to compare White (horse) to Gray (horse). Gray horses are far more common, they have white hair (when adults) but black skin -- most people call them "white" but they aren't. True white horses have pink skin and blue (or sometimes brown) eyes. And there are no albinos in horses (pink skin/red eyes), the white horse article explains why. And another article about horse breeds that may resemble your unicorn by being muscular and powerful, see Lipizzan and Andalusian horse. They both are of a subtype we sometimes call Baroque horse. Oh, and of course, for a little lighter, more refined breed, see also everyone's favorite fairy tale horse, the Arabian horse.

Hope this helps! Drop me a line again if you have questions. Montanabw(talk) 23:55, 10 June 2008 (UTC)

Reference desk[edit]

Hello, Sandman. I wanted to inform you that one of your posts (diff) was removed from the Miscellaneous desk because it was seen as giving medical advice (and suggesting to disregard possible advice given by real-life medical professionals). Because of potential harm (both legally and medically) there is consensus at the desks that we should not be giving this kind of advice and even remove it when we encounter it. See Wikipedia:Reference desk/Guidelines/Medical advice. For reference, see this thread at the desk's talk page. Thank you for understanding. ---Sluzzelin talk 17:59, 22 July 2008 (UTC)

Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on Cordonazo, by another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. The tag claims that it should be speedily deleted because Cordonazo is unquestionably copyright infringement, and no assertion of permission has been made.

To contest the tagging and request that administrators wait before possibly deleting Cordonazo, 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.

Proposed deletion of Battle Cruiser M-12[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Battle Cruiser M-12, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process because of the following concern:

no indication of notability

All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because, even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.

Good point:
"I stopped adding new articles when my video game articles were deleted. To hell with notability. What about 'the sum of all knowledge of mankind' in the founder's words?"
I have written over 100 articles. I mostly stopped writing when 3,778 of my 35,838 well referenced contriubutions were deleted, (12%). Your stats are here.
Eventually you can proudly add one of these four templates I helped make to your user page: Template:User_2001
I am also doing a study of WP:VG. Watch User:Ikip/test4 my theory is that many of these projects have been overrun by editors who delete. Ikip (talk) 21:08, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

Welcome to ARS![edit]

Hi, Sandman1142, welcome to the Article Rescue Squadron! We are a growing community of Wikipedia editors dedicated to identifying and rescuing articles that have been tagged for deletion. Every day hundreds of articles are deleted, many rightfully so. But many concern notable subjects and are poorly written, ergo fixable and should not be deleted. We try to help these articles quickly improve and address the concerns of why they are proposed for deletion. This covers a lot of ground and your help is appreciated!

If you have any questions, feel free to ask on the talk page, and we will be happy to help you.

And once again - Welcome! -- Banjeboi 13:51, 11 August 2009 (UTC)



Request for your insight[edit]

Hey, Sandman, howzit? I'm Ks64q2, and I can see that we are both on the AR Squad, and inclusionists to boot! Anywhoo, I've got a

I've got an article I wrote going through AfD- pretty contentious, we have some headstrong deletionists working feverishly to find reasons to kill it, heh. But what I was wondering is if you'd take a look at the arguments I'm making and see if they are cogent and make sense- just so I can better get an idea of what I need to address. No more, no less- the better I know my strengths and weaknesses, the better I'm prepared in the future. Anyway, the article's at [[1]]; take a look if you get the chance, and let me know. Thank you!

If you have a profession/avocation that requires a computer you're better off with a Mac[edit]

Based on your attack of my anecdote that refuted the sweeping statement, "If you have a profession/avocation that requires a computer you're better off with a Mac", it appears that you absolutely support that statement. From your other comments, I find it rather surprising that you support that statement. Perhaps your reply to my anecdote isn't conveying the meaning you intended it to convey. -- kainaw 02:42, 13 September 2010 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for May 29[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited List of world eight-ball champions, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Jack Whelan. 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.

Chinese eight-ball pool[edit]

Not sure if my {{ping}} at Talk:Eight-ball#Chinese eight-ball pool worked. The gist is: I agree there's (barely) enough sourcing to write something encyclopedic. There's not enough for a stand-alone article on the Chinese variant, but it should be covered in the eight-ball variants section. After that, and some cross-referencing, it would make sense to add the champions list to the champions article, but it should go in that order (the game has to be encyclopedic enough to include somewhere here before we including side-information about players/events associated with the game). The main problem is that only one source so far is a reliable secondary source from a reputable publisher. The others are one primary source from the same publisher (marginally acceptable, but weak), two self-published primary sources from people who are not reputable publishers/authors (not acceptable sources for anything anyone might question for any reason, but okay for rote material probably, since they're not disreputable), and some user-generated forum content, a categorically disreputable form of material which can't be used as source at all here.  — SMcCandlish ¢ ≽ʌⱷ҅ʌ≼  22:35, 29 May 2016 (UTC)
