Kirksville[edit]

Hi Sector. Had a look, and I agree those statements are problematic -- it might or might not qualify as POV (I think it's accurate, but then, I'm one of those liberals!) But it's unsourced -- and I don't think we're going to find a commentator on local politics to link it to. It should go. DavidOaks (talk) 21:36, 1 May 2010 (UTC)

Forrest/Forest[edit]

Yup, those are WP:RS -- but then, so are the state parks website and the "visit Kirksville" website. I'm with you, I think it's clear the latter two have made a mistake (and an easy one to fall into, absolutely). I think the article should reflect the fact that the correct spelling is "Forrest," explain the origin and note that the error is promulgated at a couple of otherwise good websites. Agree?

Re Pat on the back[edit]

Thanks for the "Pat on the back". I just thought I would let you know that I hold nothing against you for being from Missouri (haha), and you can do any constructive editing in Iowa that you want. I patrol all Iowa communities and appreciated your cleanup and reference edit to Ottumwa, Iowa. It alerted me to a article that needed reorganization. Just a few links that may help you. Wikipedia:WikiProject Cities/US Guideline is very helpful concerning cities. An expansion to that link I am currently working on is at Wikipedia :WikiProject Iowa/Communities/Priorities. You may be interested in Wikipedia :WikiProject Iowa/Communities, and you are welcome to join. Also another editor has been working on a "How to upload images for dummies" (my title) at User:Sbmeirow/HowToUploadPhotosToWikipedia. Be aware that both of these (mine and Sbmeirow) are works in progress. Again thanks and keep up the good work.

Hey Sector, Thanks for looking at this, I think I'm going to list it for WP:AfD because I don't think it falls under any speedy deletion criteria - (the article has existed since 2006) Outback the koala (talk) 05:32, 9 January 2011 (UTC)

Appreciation[edit]

As I build lists like List of United States Representatives from Missouri, I look at every page, briefly; some take awhile for me to figure out what I need, and I catch errors and fix them in passing; most are minor, some even trivial, but trying to help as I go. Thanks. Dru of Id (talk) 05:48, 4 February 2011 (UTC)

KTVO[edit]

I entered the zip codes for Kirksville and Ottumwa on zap2it.com and went by those listings. Obviously if that is out of date then I wouldn't have the right info. I will look again to see if there are changes. Strafidlo (talk) 19:12, 8 February 2011 (UTC)

Rebecca McClanahan[edit]

Sorry I was less than clear in my citation. The comment section contains a post from "AWY" with that statement, and multiple assertions of his identity. I understand your removal (since my citation was less than clear). I notice that there is a contributor here at wikipedia who is likely Mr. Young (User: AWY) who might be able to further confirm his statements. No attempt to spin the story one way or the other (as you'll note the reference to McClanahan's assertion that Wyatt was behind the phone calls, which were later shown to be from MoGOP) but merely to capture the whole story.

I'll gladly take your advice on how to best proceed with a NPOV discussion of the event that includes all the facts. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 165.134.208.112 (talk) 19:16, 16 April 2011 (UTC)

Re: discussion with Admin. abt. Tim Jones (politician). (posting here for my futue ref.)[edit]

Hi Gamaliel. Thanks for your note to User talk:Blackopsmo. Were you alerted to the arbitration request I posted on the matter over at Wikipedia:Biographies of living persons/noticeboard? I've never had to ask for help with a situation like this before and not sure I even asked in the right place. If you can take a look at the history of the dispute and offer an opinion I'll gladly abide by whatever ruling you make. My goal is simply accuracy and "the truth", warts and all. Its the old journalist in me I guess lol. Thanks again and have a great Wiki kind of day! Sector001 (talk) 07:22, 18 May 2011 (UTC) P.S. LOVE the pic at top of your user page. I'm a long-time radio guy and actually used an old desktop mic similar that early in my career.

I don't really think this is a policy matter (not yet, anyway), so I don't think there's a ruling to be made. The best way to bring this to a close is to encourage Blackopsmo to actually identify his objection and then it can be dealt with appropriately. How to do that, I dunno? Just keep reverting him, I guess. Also, I'm jealous, I love those old style mikes. I have no need for a microphone but I'm thinking of buying one on ebay for my desk anyway. Gamaliel (talk) 15:43, 18 May 2011 (UTC)

Help! I don't get this Wiki-Talk. How do I ask Sector 001 a question? Anyone? I have made many edits to an article, but when I log out and go to wikipedia as a logged out user I see the old article). Thanks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by TWFID (talkcontribs) 23:17, 15 June 2011 (UTC)

REPLY to Pehazet -- I am referring to Moritz Schlick. The history of the Wiki indicated you added "was" to the entry inside the brackets. This caused it to appear in the dreaded red ink, indicating a busted or nonexistent link. I've no idea what you're talking about with August Froehlich. My warning was for the edit you made to June 22 Wiki. Sector001 (talk) 20:13, 21 June 2011 (UTC)

Missouri 2012 Senate Race[edit]

Well, my argument is that this is becoming somewhat standard if you look at pages for other races. Also, look at the news coming out this week and you will notice that sometimes candidates who have declined to run previously change their minds and run, as is the case with Pete Hoekstra of Michigan. Even if the candidate is not running the polls still hold value. With increased polling data you can also get a sense of what the public opinion is towards the incumbent, similar to a poll of the incumbent versus a generic Republican, so you statement that these are now irrelevant is not exactly true. I'm not sure how this is a big issue in the first place as they are placed in a collapsible window and not cluttering up the page. If you have further points that you would like to discuss please write on my talk page or the discussion section of the page in question. 208.103.137.221 (talk) 22:28, 21 July 2011 (UTC)

Other aspects of why those types of polls still hold relevance include providing reasoning for why a particular candidate may have started a campaign only to drop it later as occasionally happens with those that poll worse than the leading candidate. So really, these polls can show the progression of the race. I understand your point that these aren't the people currently in the running, but I thought that I should point out some reasons they are still valuable. 208.103.137.221 (talk) 23:37, 21 July 2011 (UTC)

Mary Claybaugh Walton and "The Waltons" TV show[edit]

Sector001, I'm writing in response to your revision of my addendum of a note about the lineage of Bart Giamatti to "The Waltons" page: What factors determine what turns up on on TV? How does it happen that Earl Hamner's novels and stories about a fictional family called the "Spencers" gets retitled "The Waltons" on CBS? Is it coincidence that a show as popular as "The Waltons" happens in the same decade as the election of the son of Mary Claybaugh Walton to the presidency of Yale, the nation's 3rd oldest college, and the election of a US president, the 39th, whose middle name is Earl, Jimmy Carter? These are questions that billions of Wikipedia readers and millions of fans of "The Waltons"--the people most likely to read the Wikipedia article about it--are vitally interested in, and yet you, a Wikipedia editor, not only can't answer them but won't even ASK them. I can answer them, and I'm a Wikipedia editor, too. I reckon it's time for you to ask me questions, son, or go back to your history class at Boatwright U.Richard Barnette "Dickie" Bloom 18:28, 7 August 2011 (UTC)

Ohhhhkay there Skippy. Ya might try loosening your little tinfoil hat that keeps the aliens from mind-controlling you. Obviously you missed my point. That particular Wiki (Waltons) is for information pertaining or related to the show. Someone in real life named "Walton" simply doesn't qualify, else we'd be including minutia about Wal-Mart founder Sam Walton, former NBA star Bill Walton, etc. If you want to create a Wiki for all your conspiracy theories then be my friggin' guest. But keep that stuff out of Wiki for The Waltons tv show. I'll revert it every time and take it to an Admin for disciplinary action if I have to. Sector001 (talk) 20:31, 7 August 2011 (UTC)

Sullivan County, Missouri & Milan, Missouri[edit]

The Sullivan County article seemed orphaned, so I did some web research and wrote a little history section as well as adding the historical communities and geo codes. (Please expand or revise anything you wish.) Then, I took a really out-of-the-way road trip through the county to see what I had written about (!) and took some photos, including Milan which I added today. I'm glad you approve! -- Bien amicalement, Charvex (talk) 22:17, 12 September 2011 (UTC)

Vandalization of Mark Lodes (by digital assassination)[edit]

I exist. I am actually running for U.S. Senate. Todd Akin staffers have repeatedly deleted me from the list of likely candidates on his wiki page, and they have gone so far as to delete my wiki page. The only ones pulling dirty tricks are Todd Akin's staffers. This is a fact. I have screenshots of the events, and furthermore, deleting me from the internet by digital assassination is the dirtiest of dirty tricks. I am filing a harassment suit against Mr. Akin and his staffers presently. It would appear that you have painted me as some kind of "vandal" which I most certainly am not. — Preceding unsigned comment added by MarkLodes (talkcontribs) 03:54, 25 September 2011 (UTC)

Sectors reply to Mark: There are several factual errors in your reply. 1) Your self-created Wiki was deleted by an administrator for failure to follow accepted guidlines and proper references for biographies of living persons, not by any supporters of Mr. Akin. Things have to be independently verifiable by a reliable source, not just your "say so". 2) I have no proof of the motives of the unregistered IP (173.21.183.11) that was involved in deleting your name from the Todd Akin Wiki. I however also deleted your name on multiple occassions NOT because I am in any way a staffer or supporter of Mr. Akin, but because once again the unregistered IP that added it did not abide by the Wikipedia guidlines for properly referencing information. Other Wikipedia editors have done the same and for the same reason. You will note on the Wiki United States Senate election in Missouri, 2012 that once you finally complied with an independent reliable source (the St. Louis radio interview) I have reverted the others who deleted your name and issued a strong caution to IP user 173.19.130.136 about their unacceptable deleting behavior. I am neutral, a referee if you will, and only ensuring that the Wikipedia rules are followed. 3) You seem to have misread my initial request for help. I was not "painting you as some kind of vandal". I was asking for your help in stopping the unregistered IP (97.91.181.5) from vandalizing....that is UNLESS you freely admit to being one and the same as that IP. In conclusion, before making assumptions and accusations I strongly urge you to fully read and comprehend Wikipedia polices on verifiable, independent references/sources for all articles. Wikipedia has rules, and if you wish to participate you must abide by them. Sector001 (talk) 05:24, 25 September 2011 (UTC)
P.S. If you can provide the aforementioned independent, reliable, biography sources (i.e. news articles) I would be glad to assist you in creating a Wiki entry for you that does "pass muster" with our rules...especially if you should win the primary and general election. I have created/edited/and patrol for vandalism, dozens of Wikis for Missouri politicians both Democrats and Republicans.

I have a quick question because I feel like you might be more experienced with this Wikipedia thing that me, I tried to make a page for John Brunner but it got deleted because of A7: No explanation of the subject's significance (real person, animal, organization, or web content), I've improved the page since then and removed all the references to his website but I feel like it may still be deleted. I was just wondering if you have any clue as to how to make it so it is an acceptable article. I currently have it as a user draft if you want to take a look: User:Skier23/John G. Brunner. If you don't think it should be a article now or don't have time for this or whatever that's fine and thanks for your time anyway. Merry Kwanukkahmas! Skier23 (talk) 23:56, 4 December 2011 (UTC)

Rebuttal[edit]

Oh, that is rich, YOU accusing me of trying to spin an article. Actually, any rational human would know I was in fact trying to REMOVE your spin. Media Matters hardly qualifies as an objective journalistic endeavor and is considered legitimate mainly by partisan propagandists only.

I accuse you of carrying out your own personal partisan propaganda war by infiltrating the bios of select FOX News personalities who you deem fit for attack and slander via nonobjective reference sources. Consider your "propaganda insert" safe. Rational observers noting your source will see clearly through your subterfuge. Millerman31564 (talk) 14:46, 23 December 2011 (UTC)

I'm a registered Republican, do volunteer work for area Republican conservative candidates and am a regular faithful Fox News viewer. HOWEVER, unlike you, when it comes to Wikipedia I leave my politics out of it. Study up on WP:NPOV sometime. I and other responsible editors are striving for "fair and balanced". If you have rebuttal to the Media Matters story then post it and back it up with proper reference. Just blanking the info out is not acceptable Wikipedia policy.

Hi Sector001, I was wondering whether you might be willing to look over some additional revisions I proposed to Peabody Energy article's Black Mesa controversy section.

Re:United States Senate election in Missouri, 2012[edit]

Really, you're critizicng me for being from Indiana yet editing a Missouri article? I am interested in all the Senate elections, and I have removed the irrelevant declined candidates from many other articles as well. If you want to keep them up until filing officially begins, fine, but I hope to see the section gone then. It's just that if someone is not runing, it's pretty damn obvious that they aren't running. They do not need to be included. If it was truly assumed, not simply widely speculated, that someone would run, but decided not to, or else said they would but changed their mind, then it could make sense. But when a local politician, under no assumption that they would run, states prompted or unprompted that they decline, it is not warranted to include them. The exception proves the rule, and when a person is not running, it would only make sense that his absense from the 'Running' section implies the same. Reywas92Talk 19:20, 23 January 2012 (UTC)

Well evidently many other Wikipedia political editors disagree with you, Reywas92. Here are a few examples created by others that do consider it noteworthy to include them: United States Senate election in Texas, 2012, United States Senate election in California, 2012, United States Senate election in Minnesota, 2012, United States House of Representatives elections in Pennsylvania, 2012. ALL of those list or make mention of the declining candidates. This seems to be a common format & style for all similar articles. But hey, I suppose you're the only one correct and the rest of us are wrong, huh? If this is such a pet peeve of yours I suggest you kick it upstairs to a Wikipedia Admin. or put it before the community as a whole for a vote or something. Sector001 (talk) 00:13, 24 January 2012 (UTC)

Pawn Stars: "Bear-ly There"[edit]

Thanks for the assist, Sector. The source for the 1870 date is the episode itself, since that's where I got it from. Now if the company was under a different name by 1870 (Only one of the three sources cited for this point in the Volcanic Arms article is an online one that allows quick verification, and that one doesn't seem to mention that particular fact at all), then it would seem that one of two possibilities is the case here: They got the year wrong, as you have surmised, or, I would imagine, the year was correct, but they simply forgot or got wrong the company's name and/or the historical detail about its reorganization. Now me, I'd imagine it's the latter, and if I'm right, I'd think that it'd be better to restore the 1870 year, and simply add a note in the article about the name being different by then. Or perhaps we should simply stick to relating the info that the episode gave, and include a note indicating that one of the two pieces of info is wrong, and hope that doing so doesn't violate WP:SYNTH? Or are you really, really positive that the year is wrong, and the company name they used correct? Do you recall if the company name was seen/shown engraved on the gun? If so, then maybe that would bolster your theory that they got the year wrong. Perhaps we'll re-watch the episode as soon as they post it on History.com and we'll see what to do then? Nightscream (talk) 07:48, 14 February 2012 (UTC)

I just watched that particular episode about 2hrs ago and they absolutely called the gun the Volcanic and show mainstay Rick Harrison then went on to explain about the company being founded by the same gentlemen who founded Smith & Wesson firearms. It was also accompanied by one of those "pop up" boxes that Pawn Stars uses to further explain the history of the article being pawned. It was definitely a Volcanic, and indeed appeared practically identical to the 1855/57 model pictured on the Wikipedia article for Volcanic Repeating Firearms. Volcanic was definitely out of business, or rather as I explained earlier had undergone name changes, by 1870. Oliver Winchester basically took over the company and named their products after himself. Mr. Smith & Mr. Wesson went on to form their own famous self-named firearms company. Sector001 (talk) 08:53, 14 February 2012 (UTC)
Did the episode indeed mention the year 1870, or was that an error on my part? Nightscream (talk) 08:59, 14 February 2012 (UTC)

Reply -- Even if you are claiming to be Brandon Cruz there is no proof to substantiate it. I could claim to Bill Bixby, John Wayne or Santa Claus for that matter. Regardless, you need to realize that it is not your site, it is Wikipedia's article on Brandon Cruz. Wikipedia has steadfast rules that must be followed if you wish to participate -- either under your current username or an anon. IP. I have repeatedly explained that information you added was unsourced. Even if you were Brandon Cruz you would need an independent, verifiable source -- usually something from a media outlet -- to verify it. Personal experience and/or original research does not qualify. The information you have added does not match what has been reported in other reliable independent sources.

Yeah, you should take a look - it's really a cute picture. It would be nice if the cast wasn't positioned so closely together so the image could be cropped to show Cruz alone, but since that's his most notable role, I don't think it would hurt to have the three main characters of the show in the infobox on Cruz's bio article - If anything, it might be even better. --- Crakkerjakk (talk) 01:35, 6 March 2012 (UTC)


Mmemoly[edit]

Well I was reverting his edits mainly because they were not sourced and the wording that he was using was clearly biased when he first started adding his name to the pages. He seems to have since toned down the bias. Other edits by him like his edit to Template:Cleanup-spam/doc could really be considered vandalism though. I agree that he is an inexperienced editor, but when they edit that much and don't pay attention to messages on their talk pages they are just as annoying as vandalism only accounts.

Governor Dockery[edit]

Greetings Sector001. I wish to compliment you on the new information you have recenly added to the story of Missouri governor A. Dockery. It looks very nice now. That book of Missouri biographies that you cited as a source, do you know if it is available in bookstores or online? If it is still in print it sounds like an interesting read. Regards, Truth-4-Mo (talk) 16:45, 8 August 2012 (UTC)

Thanks! Glad you enjoyed it. Regarding the book, I found my copy at my local county library. You might be able to get it thru Amazon or someplace too but I haven't checked.

2000 Census data[edit]

Originally I was removing the 2000 data, but then I was informed by an admin that wasn't what the consensus was, and after looking at it now I kind of agree it does make the pages look a little bit better having both write ups in the Demographics sections. Somewhere there has been a discussion about this and they prefer that the data from 2000 is put into a subsection and left there. I personally don't know where this discussion took place and if you'd like to inquire further about it I'd recommend talking to Nyttend (talk) he is the person who informed me I wasn't following the consensus. Jamo2008 (talk) 13:57, 22 August 2012 (UTC)

Coolness. Thanks for the update. I too didn't know there'd been a discussion and consensus reached about it. I mostly just sit in my little corner of the world working on Missouri & Iowa related articles lol and don't get much involved in the big debates. I guess by having 2010 and 2000 both it can provide a comparison on growth, or lack thereof. Thanks again. Sector001 (talk) 14:14, 22 August 2012 (UTC)

Pictures around Vegas[edit]

Yea, I should and those are needed images. It's just a matter of time for me. I think the last one I did was the landscape of the Strip from the south east. One complication in the downtown area is that you need to find a place to park. Everything is paid parking except for some dedicated lots. This is something I just keep pushing off as other things take a higher priority.

How can Jingle bells be a Christmas song?[edit]

Re: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:Sidecar_Bob You assert that my recent edits "seemed less than neutral to me". I do not understand how simply stating a plainly obvious fact is not neutral. Jingle Bells is not a Christmas song because it makes absolutely no reference to Christmas. If you need a source, I cite both versions of the lyrics of Jingle Bells as they appear on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jingle_Bells If you can show me anything in the lyrics that even hints at having anything to do with Christmas I will recant.

It is my personal opinion (and you will note that I did not include this in my edit) that Jingle Bells is an early example of a "hot rod" song of the sort that the Beach Boys and Jan & Dean made famous (again, just read through the lyrics).

With this in mind, it appears that Up On The Housetop must, in fact, be the oldest American secular Christmas song being pre-dated by Deck The Halls among others. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sidecar Bob (talkcontribs) 00:53, 5 December 2012 (UTC)

Re: Walton Pig Joke[edit]

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:74.95.177.147

I apologize. That was the result of an office bet to see how long it would take for such an edit to be noticed. The longest bet was 8 hours. I intended to undo the edit myself after that time had passed. I also want to point out the other incident from that IP appears to be from someone else at the office two years prior who had something against Elin Nordegren, who I have never heard of nor have any opinion about.— Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.36.133.158 (talk) 01:55, 17 January 2013 (UTC)

Welcome to WikiProject St. Louis Cardinals[edit]

Sector001, a belated welcome to WikiProject St. Louis Cardinals! It's always exciting and fun to interact with fellow Wikipedians who share the same interest in the Cardinals. I hope you're enjoying the editing work on Cardinals-related articles so far. If you have any questions, comments, or ideas for the WikiProject, feel free to post them on the Project's talk page anytime. I look forward to working with you; Cheers! Monowi (talk) 05:57, 22 January 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the welcome, Monowi. Been a Redbirds fan since I was old enough to know what baseball was. Glad to help any way I can. I usually check the Cards team website several times daily. Lets get #12 in '13! Sector001 (talk) 17:25, 22 January 2013 (UTC)

AED locations within Kirksville, Missouri[edit]

Can you please explain to me why you deleted my table? I do not understand why AED locations are irrelevant and non-encyclopedic. They are part of the healthcare system in Kirksville, and have saved a man's life. AED locations should be important, because you only have 3 minutes after a cardiac arrest to treat the victim (specificly with an AED, or the chances of revival are very slim. A person's proximity to an AED is of utmost importance. If you are willing to explain further, I am open to ideas. I would like a productive discussion on this topic

Thank you, Ethan — Preceding unsigned comment added by Eob7524 (talkcontribs) 21:43, 25 January 2013 (UTC)

I have provided some explanation on your Talk page. For further reference please look at Columbia, Missouri one of the Wikipedia articles that has been adjudged as reaching Good Article status. Nowhere in it nor other Good Articles for similar cities would one find a long "laundry list" of businesses who offer AEDs to the public. And, at the risk of being snarky, if someone is in the midst of a heart attack, I find it highly doubtful that they or someone in the crowd is going to say "Quick! Get on Wikipedia and see if there's an AED in Kirksville anywhere close to us!" Sector001 (talk) 21:59, 25 January 2013 (UTC)

70th Armor in Korean War[edit]

Good catch on the alert date! Without referencing the date of the North's invasion of the South, 7 June is the date that came up in the references I used, here specifically Strike Swiftly Korea. It will take a while to confirm that timeline, as I had to get it through inter library loan and will have to do so again. I do remember agonizing over the alert/training/deployment timeline across my references and this date raised no flags. But how DID they know about the invasion before it happened?!? I'll have another look and get back to you.Bilhartz (talk) 03:23, 3 April 2013 (UTC)

Ways to improve The Bridge (2013 TV series)[edit]

Hi, I'm The Wikimon. Sector001, thanks for creating The Bridge (2013 TV series)!

I've just tagged the page, using our page curation tools, as having some issues to fix. Excellent article! Is it ok if i help in expanding it? The Wikimon (talk) 06:31, 9 April 2013 (UTC)

The tags can be removed by you or another editor once the issues they mention are addressed. If you have questions, you can leave a comment on my talk page. Or, for more editing help, talk to the volunteers at the Teahouse.

Edits to Head East July 2013[edit]

Sector please email me through the Official Head East website (use any mail link) to discuss recent attempted edits. I've posted to the Head East talk page but got no response from you and your email to me was such that it can not be replied to. Headeastweb (talk) 12:23, 6 July 2013 (UTC)

I am attempting to bring the matter before a Wikipedia administrator for guidance and a possible solution. It has been less than 24 hrs. These matters take time. Please be patient. I will not e-mail you or otherwise give you my personal e-mail. All contact must be through Wikipedia, sorry. Sector001 (talk) 12:28, 6 July 2013 (UTC)
Sector001, thank you for the adjustments that you recently made to remove the references to the alias and the FBI. The statement that you added about other band members disputing Huston's claim about the naming of the band is misleading. No one is in dispute about Baxter suggesting the name of the band. The dispute is about his being wanted by the FBI which you already removed so there is no need to to clarify the band's position on something that is not even in the Background information anymore. Regardless of what the Wikipedia Administrator's determination is, we hope that your recent edits will stand and that the previous content that was removed does not find its way back into the Head East page on Wikipedia. Headeastweb (talk) 21:48, 6 July 2013 (UTC)

SOA edits[edit]

Hi Sector. The reason I made the edits to the Sons of Anarchy synopsis was because the information posted, while prominent in the show, was superfluous for a Wikipedia article. There is currently a notice on the SOA page highlighting the excessiveness of the plot synopsis. I will provide justification for future edits, however.

David Moore[edit]

Hi Sector,

I'm very excited you crated a page for Col. David Moore. I have been compiling information on Moore for several years now and was considering starting a page on him. I started a page and realized I had no idea what I was doing. I have tons of material on David Moore if you woud like it. I have a picture of his headstone. Let me know if you would like any information

Thank You! Kyle Martin Grinnell, Iowa — Preceding unsigned comment added by Kyle Martin (talkcontribs) 12:27, 20 July 2013 (UTC)

Sector, I've considered starting a webpage about Moore. I don't have enough "edits" to upload a file..I would be glad to send the Jpeg to you to upload David Moore is the most amazing Civil War soldier I've ever run across! The only reason he was never given the full rank of Brigadier General(or Medal of Honor)is because on the way to Shiloh the men in his command(Missouri 21st)were shooting at citizens on the riverbanks. When the steamer reached Savannah, Tennessee, Moore was court martialed for actions unbecoming an officer(and cleared of charges). He was given his command back in time for Shiloh. Grant basically issued him a slap on the wrist. In U.S. Grants personal papers, he did personally recommend Moore for promotion to Brigadier General..but it never happened. This issue and several others(one at Athens and another the night before Shiloh)basically sunk his promotion. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Kyle Martin (talkcontribs) 12:24, 21 July 2013 (UTC)

RE: Rupert Hughes[edit]

Do you mind explaining in detail why you feel my additions were some form of 'massive copyright violations', as you stated in your edit summary? My additions were extensively researched off and on over a period of months and used reliable sources. In fact, I've used the Christensen book, Dictionary of Missouri Biography on many other Wiki's and no other editor ever alleged that it was any sort of violation. It is regrettable that one of those links has now become a dead link in the interim, but it does not justify gutting all additions I made. As always -- and in all my years editing here you seem to be the first to allege copyvio on my part -- I reworked the information from the source in my own words and did not plagiarize in any form or fashion. I don't like edit warring with others, as it is generally unproductive and takes me away from my work on other articles, so I am more than willing to work with you to resolve this issue to both our liking. However I am also very willing to 'go to the mat' to protect the upgrades I've made. If that means seeking arbitration from a neutral admin, so be it.End quote.

I do not like discussing articles on my talk page. If you have issues go to the article talk page to raise them. Thanks.

You removed information from the article when you revamped it. He was in a social movement called Technocracy movement and also wrote essays for them. That was interesting and valuable insight that you removed with a link to an article he wrote on that subject. You removed other information also.

You over and I mean really over sourced your additions to two things to the point of it being absurd to depend on a couple of sources to explain someone. That is not really researching it is just getting a bunch of info. from limited sourcing and dumping it somewhere. You also just copied many words without altering very much. See you on the talk page if you are interested further. Earl King Jr. (talk) 14:48, 4 October 2013 (UTC)

Delayed response, but a response.[edit]

Sector001, back in February of this year you left an entry on my talk page that described how my editing habits needed to improve since I was making (and probably still am) making rookie's mistakes. Not that I am complaining – I actually welcome the criticism. My apologies for the delayed response.

I have attempted to apply the tips you gave me. If you've seen the St. Louis Cardinals page recently, you may notice that I've (attempted to) streamline(d) it, especially in the history section and other efforts here and there. I'm working to get that page to a FA status. I split the History of the St. Louis Cardinals into four sections (A, B, C, D). I modified the lead and the table of the List of St. Louis Cardinals managers and would like to get the promoted to a featured list. I also nominated Yadier Molina for a featured article candidate (current list of featured article candidates) –– maybe it is a bit premature but I want to give it a try. If you have any input on any or all of these pages, please, feel free to let me know.

If I'm still missing some points from the MOS, then I'll look it over again. Buenos días! Elcid.ruderico (talk) 01:45, 9 October 2013 (UTC)

December 2013[edit]

Would you please stop changing Stephanie's last name because she is better known by her maiden name than and thus it is less confusing when doing google searches ens. Even the IMDb uses her maiden name. Also it is a standard practice among celebrities for the woman to keep her maiden name if it was in use when she became famous.

Replaceable fair use File:MargoMartindale1.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:MargoMartindale1.jpg. I noticed that this file is being used under a claim of fair use. However, I think that the way it is being used fails the first non-free content criterion. This criterion states that files used under claims of fair use may have no free equivalent; in other words, if the file could be adequately covered by a freely-licensed file or by text alone, then it may not be used on Wikipedia. If you believe this file is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the file description page and add the text {{di-replaceable fair use disputed|<your reason>}} below the original replaceable fair use template, replacing <your reason> with a short explanation of why the file is not replaceable.
  2. On the file discussion page, write a full explanation of why you believe the file is not replaceable.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media item by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by creating new media yourself (for example, by taking your own photograph of the subject).

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per the non-free content policy. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. SarekOfVulcan (talk) 14:17, 11 January 2014 (UTC)

Whenever you introduce a sentence with any adjectival phrase, that phrase must modify the grammatical subject of the sentence.
