Your recent edits[edit]

Hi there. In case you didn't know, when you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion, you should sign your posts by typing four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment. If you can't type the tilde character, you should click on the signature button Button sig.png located above the edit window. This will automatically insert a signature with your name and the time you posted the comment. This information is useful because other editors will be able to tell who said what, and when. Thank you! --SineBot (talk) 19:36, 8 October 2008 (UTC)

Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia, adding content without citing a reliable source, as you did to Deer Lodge, Montana, is not consistent with our policy of verifiability. Take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. If you are familiar with Wikipedia:Citing sources, please take this opportunity to add references to the article. Thank you. Nyttend (talk) 20:20, 8 October 2008 (UTC)

If you own this book, would you please provide edition number, date of publication, and place of publication? It's essential for verifiability. Nyttend (talk) 21:04, 8 October 2008 (UTC)

RfA Page in Article Space[edit]

Hi Seattlehawk, You have transcluded your RfA into Article Space and not into the RfA discussions. Please request a Speedy G7. {{db-author}} I think you'll have to start your RfA again. Beeswaxcandle (talk) 08:24, 1 November 2008 (UTC)

RfA[edit]

Hi, I noticed your attempt to place your nomination onto WP:RFA. You did it improperly, so I reverted it. Please see Wikipedia:Requests for adminship/nominate. However, I would recommend against it. A cursory check of your edit count reveals only 183 mainspace edits. While they may have been the best edits in the world, I can promise you that you are not going to receive much support (if any) for administratorship at this time. I advise that you wait a while, hang out, observe RfAs as they happen live, and review some past RfAs. This will give you a much better idea of what you need. You can also request admin coaching. Please don't let this dissuade you from applying for adminship in the future, when you are ready. Cheers, and happy editing!--Aervanath lives in the Orphanage 14:35, 1 November 2008 (UTC)

Request reason:

Accused of being a sock puppet of Derek1x, I asked for a check of one of his possible socks of Derek's and Allison banned me without a reason and claimed I was one of his socks. I'm most certainly not, why would I ask for a review of Derek's sock if I was him? Is that not a little strange?

Decline reason:

It is indeed strange. Checkuser has confirmed that you are a sock of this account, though, which was the reason for blocking you. — FisherQueen (talk · contribs) 22:21, 3 November 2008 (UTC)

If you want to make any further unblock requests, please read the guide to appealing blocks first, then use the {{unblock}} template again. If you make too many unconvincing or disruptive unblock requests, you may be prevented from editing this page until your block has expired.

Request reason:

I'm being called a "sock" of Derek1x look at my editing style, look at my writing stylem look at me posts. I'm not a sock. This account was banned before on my IP address. I don't care what Checkuser says. It's wrong. I'm not a sock of anyone, my IP is an office building here in Seattle, Wa. If I was a "sock" what kind of idiot would rat another "sock" out, out of the blue? Do you think I'm stupid or something? Wouldn't I be ummmmm little more more guarded so as NOT to get a "sock" banned? This is MY ONLY ACCOUNT and now it's banned. I only edit my hometown of Butte, Montana for the most part and I've done alot on that page. Checkuser is wrong, watch me, watch my edits, look at my writings. I'm not a sock of anyone. This really bothers me to be accused of this

Decline reason:

The sort of "sock" that would rat another "sock" out could be one that's trying to hide suspicion from himself. Checkuser is very accurate, as it looks at considerably more than just your IP address. A  Confirmed result shows that all of this evidence points to you being Derek. — Hersfold (t/a/c) 01:02, 4 November 2008 (UTC)

Wherever you're copying the template from, you're adding extra requests and a 'request accepted' template. The unblock template is simply {{unblock|your reason here}}. -FisherQueen (talk · contribs) 01:24, 4 November 2008 (UTC)

Unblocked[edit]

Hi there. Per our email conversation, I'm unblocking your account. I re-ran the check in some detail after someone mentioned it to me and I was wrong. Please accept my apologies - this was my fault here - Alison 06:16, 1 December 2008 (UTC)

No worries....Glad my name is finally cleared...--seattlehawk94 (talk) 06:17, 1 December 2008 (UTC) Thanks for rechecking!--seattlehawk94 (talk) 06:17, 1 December 2008 (UTC)

Westfield Southcenter[edit]

As a compromise, I kept in the shooting, but I took out the information that it was in the food court, since it wasn't even on the same floor as the food court. -- 97.113.93.244 (talk) 21:00, 2 January 2009 (UTC)

January 2009[edit]

Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia, we must insist that you assume good faith while interacting with other editors, which you did not on X&Y. Take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Thank you. That clearly was not vandalism JD554 (talk) 08:27, 30 January 2009 (UTC)

Robert Christgau is a notable music reviewer and having his reviews added to album articles can in no way be construed as vandalism. Even editors with a past history of vandalism can make good edits, which appears to be the case this time. You said "Maybe it wasn't vandalism", which means you should assume good faith and not automatically revert an editor's contributions as vandalism because they have been one in the past. --JD554 (talk) 15:31, 30 January 2009 (UTC)

Bar Jonah[edit]

Thanks for the heads-up. Looking at our buddy's contributions, I see a pretty single-minded focus that makes me think the kid is not playing with a full deck. Too much butter in the roux, in chef-speak... best thing to do there is revert without comment and carry on. That thing on the Montana project page was clearly a play for attention, a sly little troll attempting to push people's buttons. I don't plan to give the pitiful critter the satisfaction of rising to the bait any more. Be well, __Just plain Bill (talk) 13:42, 4 March 2009 (UTC)

Creating pages[edit]

Click on the links:

All you have to do, basically, is (1) find a redlink and click it, which will take you to the create-a-new-page part, or (2) type the name of the page you'd like to create into the URL above [e.g. replace "User_talk:Seattlehawk94" with "Melrose, Montana"], and when it tells you that there is no such page, click the "create this page" tab at the top and start writing.

Let me remind you, as far as the communities go: because they're all part of Butte or Walkerville, please don't call them "unincorporated communities" or add them to {{Silver Bow County, Montana}}. Nyttend (talk) 12:51, 15 March 2009 (UTC)

Butte FAC[edit]

Just wanted to let you know that the Butte article really doesn't have much of a chance of passing Featured Article: although I don't work with FAs and thus don't know all the things that reviewers want to see done, I know that they'd require many more references. Nyttend (talk) 13:34, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

I'm confused: what do you mean by "it kinda defacto made it"? It was clearly not promoted. Nyttend (talk) 06:05, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

It was on the front page...--seattlehawk94 (talk) 06:08, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

So?[edit]

Whatever you think of my words, would you please heed Wikipedia:No personal attacks? I wasn't trying to offend anyone by the edit or by its summary; it's simply a news story that will pass and thus doesn't deserve mention in the article. "So?" wasn't meant as a commentary on the crash itself. Nyttend (talk) 12:11, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

The bit that I removed said a "small airplane". Maybe it's because I almost never fly except in light aircraft, but to me a "small airplane" means something that fits a few people (example of what I was thinking), not what this event was. Thanks for pointing this out. Nyttend (talk) 14:22, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

No worries...When I first heard about it that's what I thought because most planes in and out of there are 2 or 4 seaters. Kinda shocked me when I saw the numbers...--seattlehawk94 (talk) 05:48, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

Justine Ezarik[edit]

Were you trying to renominate for deletion? The old AfD does not belong in today's log so I undid your change to put it there. I42 (talk) 07:16, 27 March 2009 (UTC)

No I think only one or two things are mentioned in the article. I can tell you where I was when Kirk Gibson hit his might blast off of Dennis Eckersley because that was a memorable moment for me. There are certain semi important events for the general population that are extremely important events for specific individuals. For a lifecaster this was an extemely important event.--TonyTheTiger (t/c/bio/WP:CHICAGO/WP:LOTM) 00:25, 29 March 2009 (UTC)

I can think of where I was when Eck gave up the HR too...Doesn't mean it belongs in an article.

Show me ONE OTHER article where it mentions something along those lines and I'll agree...That article is like a damn Myspace fan page...Needs to either be cleaned up or taken down.--seattlehawk94 (talk) 00:31, 29 March 2009 (UTC)

Read the whole article and it tells you where she was when the original iPhone came out.--TonyTheTiger (t/c/bio/WP:CHICAGO/WP:LOTM) 00:45, 29 March 2009 (UTC)

So two pieces of unless information...Again, show me one other article like that...--seattlehawk94 (talk) 01:08, 29 March 2009 (UTC)

Look, you asked for a second one and I showed you a second one. Just deal with the fact that she has an article for doing something encyclopedic that you don't have much respect for.--TonyTheTiger (t/c/bio/WP:CHICAGO/WP:LOTM) 03:54, 29 March 2009 (UTC)

When I said SHOW ANOTHER ARTICLE, you pointed out the same article as an example...Great example...--seattlehawk94 (talk) 02:49, 16 April 2009 (UTC)

Melrose[edit]

What's wrong with making it sound like it's right in Butte? It is right in Butte. Look at the map of Butte in Silver Bow County — unless it's in Walkerville, it's in Butte. "Neighborhood" is the standard term used for communities that are part of municipalities but have a different name. Nyttend (talk) 04:36, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

Neighborhoods can often be distinct communities. Forgive me if you already know this — but Butte and Silver Bow County form a consolidated city-county — except for Walkerville, the city and the county have identical borders. That's the point of the map to which I linked: red parts of the county are Butte. They are legally part of the city, and that's how US geography articles here work: we don't go by informal understandings but by the legal state of things. Nyttend (talk) 12:05, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Bacon Bowl[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Bacon Bowl, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process because of the following concern:

Non-notable event; minimal non-trivial, reliable source coverage.

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.

Request reason:

Where exactly did I "vandalize" I'm very curious...This "wizardman" blocked me for "vandalism", uh...Sorry dude, didn't "vandalize" any pages, looked at my edits and want to know exactly how any of it is vandalism that person never gave a reason for a block and if you look at my edits there are none that are "vandalism"...Think someone is on a powertrip, if there was a reason or if I've dealt with this person before I may understand but I don't see any reason why I was blocked or even a link to the SUPPOSED "vandalism".

Decline reason:

As harej said, you're probably autoblocked, see template:autoblock for instructions on getting it lifted. Closedmouth (talk) 08:50, 28 August 2009 (UTC)

If you want to make any further unblock requests, please read the guide to appealing blocks first, then use the {{unblock}} template again. If you make too many unconvincing or disruptive unblock requests, you may be prevented from editing this page until your block has expired.

You're probably caught in an autoblock. Don't worry, this will be sorted. Unless there's evidence otherwise, I don't believe the block has anything to do with you. @harej 08:42, 28 August 2009 (UTC)
Ah...--seattlehawk94 (talk) 08:44, 28 August 2009 (UTC)
According to the records, neither your account is blocked nor are you autoblocked, which probably means an IP address that you're using has been blocked. In the meantime, I've granted an IP block exemption. Don't make me regret it! @harej 08:52, 28 August 2009 (UTC)

Never vandalize....Never will...Thanks for fixing it!--seattlehawk94 (talk) 08:54, 28 August 2009 (UTC)

Ah, you were caught in an IP block affecting a range of IPs. I'm not sure of the context, but your account is good to go. Happy editing! @harej 09:04, 28 August 2009 (UTC)

Thanks again! Cheers!!--seattlehawk94 (talk) 09:12, 28 August 2009 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Bacon Bowl[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Bacon Bowl has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

football game with no evidence of notability.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{dated prod}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. The speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. Oo7565 (talk) 18:08, 10 September 2010 (UTC)

Wikipedia Campus Ambassadors wanted in Bozeman, Montana[edit]

Hi! I'm leaving you this message because you're listed as a member of WikiProject Montana. The Wikipedia Ambassador Program is currently looking for Campus Ambassadors to help with Wikipedia assignments at Montana State University - Bozeman, which will be participating in the Public Policy Initiative for the Spring 2011 semester. The role of Campus Ambassadors will be to provide face-to-face training and support for students on Wikipedia-related skills (how to edit articles, how to add references, etc.). This includes doing in-class presentations, running workshops and labs, possibly holding office hours, and in general providing in-person mentorship for students.

Prior Wikipedia skills are not required for the role, as training will be provided for all Campus Ambassadors (although, of course, being an experienced editor is a plus).

I know Montana is a big state, but if you happen to live near Bozeman and you are interested in being a Wikipedia Campus Ambassador, or know someone else from Bozeman who might be, please email me or leave a message on my talk page.--Sage Ross - Online Facilitator, Wikimedia Foundation (talk) 21:37, 3 December 2010 (UTC)

Suggestion for WikiProject United States to support WikiProject Montana[edit]

It was recently suggested that WikiProject Montana might be inactive or semiactive and it might be beneficial to include it in the list of projects supported by WikiProject United States. I have started a discussion on the projects talk page soliciting the opinions of the members of the project if this project would be interested in being supported by WikiProject United States. Please feel free to comment on your opinions about this suggestion. --Kumioko (talk) 01:51, 16 August 2011 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
