Hi from Alphax[edit]

Hi Simfish,

That would be me, but I'm actually more from AoWH than Town's Crier. I don't have Autism or Aspergers, but my brain has some interesting abnormal functions that were (a long time ago) briefly labelled (probably incorrectly) as ADD.

Good to see you contributing to the greatest repository of human knowledge ever written - Alphax 07:22, Oct 1, 2004 (UTC)

Thanks for the reply, Alphax! I see now. THough I sometimes cannot resist returning to AoKH. ;)

Uh...hi/welcome[edit]

_johnlee from OD here. Talk pages generally aren't used for blogs — they're a handy method of private messaging in the Wiki style. Here are a few good links for newcomers:

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! BTW, you can sign your name using three tildes, like this: ~~~. Four tildes (~~~~) produces your name and the current date. If you have any questions, see the help pages, add a question to the village pump or ask me on my Talk page. Here are some things you can do to get started:


You can help improve the articles listed below! This list updates frequently, so check back here for more tasks to try. (See Wikipedia:Task Center for brief guides.)

See Wikipedia:Maintenance for more information.

Help counter systemic bias by creating new articles on important women.

Help improve popular low quality articles.

Again, welcome. Johnleemk | Talk 08:52, 21 Aug 2004 (UTC)

Thanks for the message johnlee! Just to let you know; I was actually trying to find a free blog host where users could reply to my comments. I found none, save for Xanga which frankly gives little privacy from classmates (I don't want classmates to see my blog!). And Wikipedia is perfect. I'm ascetic so fancy backgrounds don't matter to me.Simfish 01:43, 27 Aug 2004 (UTC)

Ah; screw the blog. I just viewed your contributions and seen the "ready to delete" contribution for a user who abused Wikispace. And I shouldn't be abusing it. ;) I really shouldn't. I apologize.01:47, 27 Aug 2004 (UTC)

Don't worry. We're generally tolerant of such things, provided you make decent contributions to Wikipedia, whether in helping to run it or just edit articles. What pisses most people off is when users who don't help out at all come and make Wikipedia their own little homepage. Otherwise, a blog here would generally be tolerated. Johnleemk | Talk 18:04, 27 Aug 2004 (UTC)

I see.

Hi Simfish,

Some stylistic points[edit]

Hi!

I just want to comment on some matters of style..

First, Wikipedia uses Capitalization Sparingly. Article titles should only be capitalized if it consists of proper nouns. The same goes for section headings.

Secondly, always start section headings at ==Two levels==. Do not ==Use a colon:== at the end of headings.

Oh, and one more thing, please use the Preview button to view intermediate editing steps.

Thanks, — David Remahl 22:58, 2 Oct 2004 (UTC)

Thanks for the info, I am now putting them into account when creating any new articles. Simfish 00:59, 4 Oct 2004 (UTC)



Guatemala[edit]

Are you the person who trashed Guatemala [1] this morning? ie 152.157.79.253, who has certainly been contributing to your user page, and appears, according to my IP locator, to be from a school in Everett, Washington. --SqueakBox 18:44, Mar 23, 2005 (UTC)


No, I edit my page from my school without logging in. Simfish 02:04, 24 Mar 2005 (UTC)

So these Special:Contributions 152.157.79.253 are not yours then? Do they belong to someone else? Or are possibly some of them yours, and some belong to someone else? I appreciate school computers are shared. Anyway, given that this IP number is being used for vandalism I strongly advise you to sign in when you use that IP address. --SqueakBox 02:08, Mar 24, 2005 (UTC)

No, I only edited my own user page from that IP address. Alright - I'll try to log in when editing my page from school in the future. Simfish 03:10, 24 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Cheers, --SqueakBox 03:57, Mar 24, 2005 (UTC)

UW Academy[edit]

I replied to your message on my talk. Christopherlin 23:54, 25 May 2005 (UTC)

User:Johnleemk[edit]

I don't know if you noticed, but you put that hi on his userpage. Make sure you put communications on talk pages in the future. Some people don't like it. Happy editing! Mgm|(talk) 01:07, Jun 1, 2005 (UTC)

He said on his userpage that it was fine - and he wanted someone to put something there. So I made that comment. Simfish 01:10, 1 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Yo[edit]

Hey, simfish; are you an RSI05ers? In that case, drop me a line - I'm Jason Chu, RSI03, and an RSI'05 first-week TA.
Even if you're not, that's cool, too; good job on starting the RSI entry. I appreciate it. 216.158.31.195 19:56, 6 Jun 2005 (UTC)

No, I'm still too young for RSI. I was considering applying next year if I did not get accepted to an early entrance program. Simfish 23:27, 6 Jun 2005 (UTC)

  • Even if you get accepted to an early entrance program, you can still get into RSI. One of my fellow RSI03ers attended MIT in the class of 2007. jglc | t | c 16:24, 9 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Oh, the problem is... that I'm going to university next year (I was planning on applying to RSI that year) through the early entrance program, thereby disqualifying me from RSI. The person you're speaking about went to RSI the summer before college, I would believe. Simfish 02:03, 10 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Greetings[edit]

I couldn't help but notice your Random Notes for Self noone should look at. My recommendation is to create a sub user page like User:Simfish/Random notes and put your stuff there.

By the way, if that was you, adding the link, sorry, I reverted it. You should log in when editing your user page! Especially if you're on a school computer. ;-) Ambush Commander 21:30, Jun 14, 2005 (UTC)

Thanks for the suggestion - done. Sometimes I'm so excited to post something I forget to log on but that really isn't a great idea all of the time. Simfish 02:19, 17 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Unspecified source for Image:Hgmain logo-l.gif[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Hgmain logo-l.gif. I notice the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you have not created this file yourself, then there needs to be a justification explaining why we have the right to use it on Wikipedia (see copyright tagging below). If you did not create the file yourself, then you need to specify where it was found, i.e., in most cases link to the website where it was taken from, and the terms of use for content from that page.

If the file also doesn't have a copyright tag, then one should be added. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Fair use, use a tag such as {{Non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair_use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may 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. Bestiege23 18:37, 28 November 2006 (UTC)

AfD nomination of Tony Attwood[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

An editor has nominated one or more articles which you have created or worked on, for deletion. The nominated article is Tony Attwood. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also Wikipedia:Notability and "What Wikipedia is not").

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion(s) by adding your comments to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Tony Attwood. Please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate.

Please note: This is an automatic notification by a bot. I have nothing to do with this article or the deletion nomination, and can't do anything about it. --Erwin85Bot (talk) 01:17, 20 March 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of John Marzluff[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 John Marzluff requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia.

Proposed deletion of Lee Kump[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Lee Kump has been proposed for deletion because it appears to have no references. Under Wikipedia policy, this biography of a living person will be deleted unless it has at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article.

If you created the article, please don't be offended. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Referencing for beginners, or ask at the help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within seven days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one. Wgolf (talk) 03:47, 21 April 2015 (UTC)

Too many capitals[edit]

Please note that in section headings, such as Honors and awards or External links, one should not capitalize an initial letter merely because its in the heading. The first letter is capitalized (except in rare cases where there is some special reason not to do that) and subsequent initials are in lower case except when there is a special reason (such as a person's name) to use a capital. This is codified in WP:MOS. Michael Hardy (talk) 04:10, 22 April 2015 (UTC)

Some advice[edit]

Hello! Thanks for your contributions. It seems you've been running into difficulty with some recent articles, stubs that on face value fail to adequately demonstrate notability. I believe much of this stems from your using in some cases only a single sentence for an article. While Wikipedia is a work in progress, time-consuming and effort-draining deletion attempts and discussions can be spared if article creators invest a bit more effort into clearly demonstrating notability right off the bat, i.e. instead of simply saying so and so is a person who did X, say clearly why he/she is famous or noteworthy (there is a difference between doing something and being known for doing something: focus on the latter). In other words, put some effort into it. Perhaps strive to write at least 5 sentences, and add at least five categories to each article you create, even stubs. Adding an appropriate stub tag and infobox would help articles develop faster as well. Without a good foundation (even if an incomplete stub) other editors may not always be able to improve your stubs before speedy deletion, which would be a shame if the subject is truly notable, and wastes everyone's time. All the best, --Animalparty! (talk) 20:24, 16 January 2016 (UTC)

Ellie from Quora has a question[edit]

Hi Simfish,

You have suddenly become very active on Wikipedia lately. Inquiring minds want to know why. Shouldn't you be overwhelmed with work for school stuff?

Also, why do you like to create stub articles but refuse to indicate that they are stubs using the category intended for such?

Speedy deletion nomination of Yvette Fay Francis-McBarnette[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 Yvette Fay Francis-McBarnette requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia.

Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, 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 from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Proposed deletion of Timeline of Twitch.tv[edit]

Notice

The article Timeline of Twitch.tv has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

The content of this article and sources listed are an effective duplication of the content on the main Twitch.tv article and do not provide any more info aside from information on competitors such as a streamer changing platform which is irrelevant to a timeline of Twitch anyway. It is a format which just focuses to closely to unimportant details which are far better explained in the main article. It also seems to not have been updated in sometime (unsurprising for a paid article), probably also because the main article is a better place for any updates, as it has been.

Gustaf Arrhenius moved to draftspace[edit]

An article you recently created, Gustaf Arrhenius, does not have enough sources and citations as written to remain published. It needs more citations from reliable, independent sources. (?) Information that can't be referenced should be removed (verifiability is of central importance on Wikipedia). I've moved your draft to draftspace (with a prefix of "Draft:" before the article title) where you can incubate the article with minimal disruption. When you feel the article meets Wikipedia's general notability guideline and thus is ready for mainspace, please click on the "Submit your draft for review!" button at the top of the page. Jalen D.
