Lee Areum[edit]

Hey there! I'm really failing to understand why users keep rendering her given name "아름" as "雅凜". "아름" is a Native Korean word and is not a Sino-Korean word of Chinese origin, therefore, it is only ever written exclusively in Hangul. Hanja does NOT equal Chinese, it is the implementation of Chinese characters for writing the Korean language. If you don't want to take my word for it, you can have a look at an online dictionary where it explicitly shows that 아름 does not have any corresponding Hanja as it is a native Korean word.

Kitten (06) by Ron.jpg

My Father was one of U Kyin's best friends in the I.C.S. & I meet U Kyin's daughter in Rangoon when I go there. They were at Oxford together and went out to Burma on the same ship in 1928. Also all information comes from the British Library's Indian Civil Service Lists - amended each year... Also from a book given to me by his daughter containing all the speeches he delivered as an Ambassador. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Beatriceclaire (talkcontribs) 10:02, 15 November 2011 (UTC)

Welcome templates[edit]

Hi Shirt. I know you mean well, but please stop putting welcome template on the talk pages of new users who have not made at least a few serious edits.

:I've left a note responding to the rather belligerent message the user above left on my talkpage; he is profoundly mistaken about the community's patience for characterization of opposition to nationalist POV warring as "vandalism." Acroterion (talk) 21:23, 18 November 2011 (UTC)

Your response was flawed nonsense once again, Acroterion. It is quite clear that I am not mistaken at all - this, as the case before, is NOT just opposition but clearly vandalism. Not only that, but his vandalism is not opposition against such things - it IS nationalist POV edit warring.

This appears to be the former PowerSane/Suicidal Lemming, master of many IP socks. Acroterion (talk) 03:06, 20 November 2011 (UTC)

SFDK the group was created at the beginning of the 90's. The members were zatu and two friends and the original name was Straight From Da Kranny.

Footballer (painting)[edit]

Thanks for the link, Shirt58. I think it's clear that Nolan chose horizontal stripes ("rugby hoops") to stand out in contrast to the vertical lines of the goalpost and boundary fence. Pretty smart composition. All the elements of old-style Aussie Rules guernseys are there, and Nolan originally called the work Full-Back, St Kilda, so I'm not sure where the rugby connection comes in. - HappyWaldo (talk) 05:08, 11 August 2012 (UTC)

I have since read other blog posts by Fagan and his focus on the game's (otherwise criminally overlooked) cultural/artistic side is to be admired. It's debatable if there's art occuring on the field, but there's plenty of art surrounding it, and my personal research in this area has only enhanced my enjoyment of sport. - HappyWaldo (talk) 10:29, 11 August 2012 (UTC)

The discussion is closed (without any input from me concerning it's outcome) and because it's not necessary to re-open for this, I would just like to point out that the editor in question repeatedly move warred and edit warred on a page, and completely ignored any attempts to communicate until the end when both pages were blocked from being re-used as titles.

Your contributed article, Johor Bahru General Hospital[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

Hello, I noticed that you recently created a new page, Johor Bahru General Hospital. First, thank you for your contribution; Wikipedia relies solely on the efforts of volunteers such as you. Unfortunately, the page you created covers a topic on which we already have a page - Hospital Sultanah Aminah. Because of the duplication, your article has been tagged for speedy deletion. Please note that this is not a comment on you personally and we hope you will continue helping to improve Wikipedia. If the topic of the article you created is one that interests you, then perhaps you would like to help out at Hospital Sultanah Aminah - you might like to discuss new information at the article's talk page.

If you think that the article you created should remain separate, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. Additionally if you would like to have someone review articles you create before they go live so they are not nominated for deletion shortly after you post them, allow me to suggest the article creation process and using our search feature to find related information we already have in the encyclopedia. Try not to be discouraged. Wikipedia looks forward to your future contributions. Shirt58 (talk) 11:07, 24 August 2012 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of User talk:Petclub24[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on User talk:Petclub24, requesting that it be deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under two or more of the criteria for speedy deletion, by which articles can be deleted at any time, without discussion. If the page meets any of these strictly-defined criteria, then it may be soon be deleted by an administrator. The reasons it has been tagged are:

  • It seems to be unambiguous advertising which only promotes a company, product, group, service or person and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become encyclopedic. (See section G11 of the criteria for speedy deletion.) Please read the guidelines on spam and Wikipedia:FAQ/Business for more information.
  • It appears to be a clear copyright infringement. (See section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion.) For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

    If the external website belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. If you are not the owner of the external website but have permission from that owner, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission. However, even if you use one of these processes to release copyrighted material to Wikipedia, it still needs to comply with the other policies and guidelines to be eligible for inclusion. If you would like any assistance with this, you can ask a question at the help desk.

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Invitation to become registered editor[edit]

Hi Shirt58,

You today invited me at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Reference_desk/Science to create an account for myself. You have done this for at least one other person who has posted to Ref Desk under an IP address.

Thank you for your good intentions, but please be aware that this is pointless and just fills up Wikipedia servers with orphan talk pages, because IP addresses are reassign by ISP's alll the time to diffrent users. The IP address I have now could be someone else's only a few minutes later. It's only a fluke that I spotted your effort. If you want to discuss anythging with an unregistered user, invite them to your talk page.

There are good reasons for not registering, mostly centred around the strange attitudes of Wikipedia administrators. If you look at the administrator's talk page archive, you will see a a number of discussions, some quite lengthy and bordering on the vitriolic, with various unregistered and registered posters on this topic. Like others, I have posted to Ref Desk in good faith, and always constructive. Never the less, some admins and some editors don't like me, and have tried to block and ban me. Registering would only make it easier for them. I have in recent months sharply reduced my contributions to Ref Desk due to the attitudes of certain Wikipedians who appear to view it as a club to which new members are not necessarily welcome.

Welcomes[edit]

It might be a good idea to be more discerning with who you welcome to Wikipedia :). Ironholds (talk) 10:50, 2 September 2012 (UTC)

The second criteria would make sense if the welcome template didn't invite them to stay, show them how to create an account and wish them the very best that they enjoy editing here - and if the IP wasn't blocked when you left the message. In my experience removing their ability to contribute after they vandalise does a pretty good job of explaining to them we're not a fan ;p. Ironholds (talk) 12:18, 2 September 2012 (UTC)

Prince Salman Bin Abdulaziz Bin Salman Al-Saud[edit]

In regard to this article, if the subject is a member of the Saudi royal family, where is the article about his father? Maybe there is such an article, but it needs to be linked from his own article. --Metropolitan90 (talk) 16:16, 29 September 2012 (UTC)

I don't think being a member of the Saudi Royal family is enough: there are thousands of them, literally - see House of Saud. I have looked twice at that article and not decided either to delete or to de-speedy, but I don't think it would survive AfD. Seems to be an autobiography.

Thanks for cleaning that up. I don't like CSDing new pages, but en masse pastes are particularly bad for WP. Suffice to say, I'm glad you saved everyone work :-) Archaios (talk) 10:28, 6 October 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for October 2[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited The World Today (Australian radio program), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Current affairs (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.

Brisbane Lions[edit]

I wasn't sure how to reply to your message, so this is my attempt. I was wanting to update the Brisbane Lions Membership and Average Attendance chart (in the Membership base and sponsorship section) to include the 2012 figures, which I have now completed. The previous owner had not updated the chart since 2008, so I had updated it with the 2009-2011 figures earlier in the year. I have also just finished adding an Average Goals per Game chart to Jonathon Brown's page. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Brisbane1965 (talkcontribs) 13:55, 3 October 2012 (UTC)

Sporting Clube de Goa squad[edit]

Hey mate. First off I would like to thank you for taking the time to edit on the Sporting Clube de Goa page and add the appropriate tags to certain articles but I just noticed you created the Sporting Clube de Goa squad template which is fine because I was going to get to that eventually but I saw you based this off the squad on the club website but that is not exactly correct. That squad has not been updated since around 2 years ago (which is strange because they update the articles in the site) but for example, KAILO KARPEH, is listed on the club website but he was released over the summer and Warun Deep (or Warundeep Singh) left the club in 2011. Milagrio Medeira played for Vasco S.C. since 2011 as well as proven through here ([3]). Not saying what you did was wrong (most of the squad is still there) but I thought I would tell you that I will redo the template before I actually do it. Cheers and again thank you for the help. --Arsenalkid700 (talk) 04:24, 14 October 2012 (UTC)

Thanks mate. The template is good, however it would only really work if I knew the numbers of each player. A football template needs the numbers the players wear on the back of there jerseys which we dont know for Sporting. There are clubs that I still need to do which this template will come in handy for and it shall make my life easier. As for the source... well the site does not update so I used to recent edition of the Indian Football 2012-13 transfer list (Seen here [4]) and so far, based on the two games Sporting has played this season, that list is right. --Arsenalkid700 (talk) 05:03, 14 October 2012 (UTC)
Ah, your in Australia. You should be watching the A-League... Melbourne Heart vs. Wellington Phoenix is a good game at the moment haha. But ya, I am in the Eastern Standard Time Zone... American EST. So it is currently 1:19 in the morning. Usually during the week I never edit wikipedia due to school but on weekends I like to stay up till around 3 in the morning; however that is only because I am redoing all the Indian footy pages. Once I am done with this then I will probably stop staying up at 3 and maybe lower it to 1:30 or something. --Arsenalkid700 (talk) 05:20, 14 October 2012 (UTC)
Oh, your also a cricket fan. I am guessing an Australia fan but do you also follow club cricket as well, Big Bash or IPL etc. Its IPL, India and the USA for me (yes, the USA has a cricket team... made up of 100% foreigners). --Arsenalkid700 (talk) 13:17, 14 October 2012 (UTC)

Lutefisk[edit]

Stockfish is pre-lutefisk — the hard, dried stage. By the time it's been processed into actual lutefisk it's of a rather jelly-like texture. Throwing a handful of it at an editor to teach them a lesson might have a nice slopping effect, if your aim is good, but whacking with it I should think literally impossible. Besides, what's good about the stockfish is that the rack enters into the walloping! [Proudly :] Effective, I should think! They'll remember that for a few weeks! Did little Shirt notice my recent generous offer to consider requests for specialised teaching-a-lesson templates? [Dubiously :] I suppose I could try to design a lutefisk-throwing template. I don't know if I feel really inspired, though. The thrower would need a serious shower, or steam-bath, too. (P. S. Always substitute my templates if when you use them, to get your own sender name in them.) darwinbish BITE 11:39, 16 October 2012 (UTC).

I did not even notice that my userpage was attacked again. In that period I was knocked off the internet for a few days due to the "easy switch" of provider. But although late, I still want to thank you for taking care of him. The Banner talk 20:44, 18 October 2012 (UTC)

Hi Shirt58 -"the genie has been let out of bottle a long while ago" and "Wikipedia is a victim of its own success" - yes you are correct, many articles are created for the wrong reasons ... ultimately it all balances out. Regards - Youreallycan 05:38, 19 October 2012 (UTC)

User:Dugararchit[edit]

I thought that was a very forebearing remark you left on this talk page. Forgive me if I am attempting to teach my grandmother how to suck eggs, but if you look at the edit histories of the various pages edit by this person, there appears to be at best some tag-team editing going on & I suspect a sock IP edit on one of the talk pages. I'm not really experienced enough in the wikiworld to know whether it is is worth taking further or how to do it. TheLongTone (talk) 08:25, 19 October 2012 (UTC)

Hi again, TheLongTone, and thanks for your kind message.
My personal editing philosophy includes trying to reduce the amount of unnecessary on-wiki drama. In this case, I thought I'd also let the editor know that their edits may also cause unnecessary off-wiki drama. That is because I am the nicest person in the entire world.[dubious ]
And no, no-one's granny needs lessons here. I've been here a long while, and often ask other editors for help with what might seem to them klewless moob questions; for example, I'm still hopelessly naive about most of the techy workings of the software.
As for the <lawyer> alleged allegations of allegations of alleged sockpuppetry allegations </lawyer>, do you have WP:TWINKLE switched on in your userprefs? It will guide you through the process of adding a Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations case. Let me know if you have any questions about this, or anything else. (Caveat: I may have no clue how to answer them.)
Hope this helps, as the - aaargh! - cliche goes. --Shirt58 (talk) 09:38, 19 October 2012 (UTC)
And I thought that I was the nicest person in all the world. Seriously, I don't think a single IP edit is worth a sockpuppet investiation, but the obvious collusion of the two editors possibly is especially since it seems to be commercially motivated:would that be ANI/spam?. Actually, I'd rather be editing articles than doing this, but it's a good outlet for ill temper... TheLongTone (talk) 09:45, 19 October 2012 (UTC)
If you have got concerns and WP:TWINKLE, click on TW -> select the Drop-down menu item "Select report type: Vandalism (WP:AIV)" and click on the fifth presented clickable option, "Account is a promotion-only account". Just like your good self, I'd rather be editing articles.--Shirt58 (talk) 10:38, 19 October 2012 (UTC)
Ta muchly. I do have Twinkle enabled.TheLongTone (talk) 10:42, 19 October 2012 (UTC)

Notability of companies[edit]

Hi, you say in the ANI thread here that German Wikipedia has much more stringent standards relating to notability of companies. I can't read German but I'd be interested to know more about those standards. Can you assist? - Sitush (talk) 12:58, 20 October 2012 (UTC)
