WikiProject Iowa[edit]

Hello, I noticed that you edited an article related to, or expressed interest in Iowa. Therefore, I was wondering if you would be interested in joining (proposed) WikiProject Iowa? If so, please add your name to "Interested Wikipedians" at Proposed WikiProject Iowa --Tim4christ17 03:41, 5 September 2006 (UTC)

Re: Block of User talk:[edit]

No it is not. I used to warn every vandal that was blocked, but, when it adds up, it is very time consuming, and it is source of misunderstanding when blocks expire and IPs are shared. I always warn the users I indef block, and I blank the talk pages of IPs I block for a long time (> 6 months). I usually warn users when I block them, to be sure they get the message. But most IPs do hit and run, and I believe the error message is enough to send the word home. I hope that helps! -- lucasbfr talk 18:50, 27 February 2008 (UTC)


When putting deletion tags on redirects, as you did at User_talk:, place them above the #redirect so they are visible without viewing the source. —Random832 20:11, 13 March 2008 (UTC)

Re: Edit to Maverick[edit]

It absolutely DOES matter that Mavericks are not Mustangs. If people want to read about Mustangs, they can look up Mustangs on Wikipedia. There is absolutely NO reason to have Mustang notes on a Maverick article. In fact, it's ridiculous, and it just clutters up the page. I am not a vandal. I just hate seeing information listed which does not pertain to the subject...

Re: Current revision...[edit]

Those notes contain more than just sales figures for the Mustang compared to the Maverick. They contain irrelevant data regarding current production Mustangs. I would appreciate if you would stop re-listing such irrelevant data... —Preceding unsigned comment added by Streetavenger (talkcontribs) 21:22, 22 April 2008 (UTC)

Photo request tags on Virginia articles[edit]

You have been replacing the photo request fields on a number of WikiProject Virginia talk page templates with more general template:reqphoto templates, with summaries that say you are making them "more specific". I think if you go back and check your work that you will find you are doing the opposite. Rklear (talk) 13:27, 2 June 2013 (UTC)

A good specific example is Talk:Chris Head (politician). Before your change, the photo request was attached to the Virginia project, so readers would at least associate it with Virginia. Now it's just a generic photo request with no visible defining information. All of your photo requests are that way. Rklear (talk) 20:50, 2 June 2013 (UTC)
I don't see "people of Virginia" on the talk page, and neither would you, if you actually looked at it rather than your own edit summary. The point is that you've botched pretty much every template:reqphoto edit you've made, dozens of them. Do you review your work before saving? Rklear (talk) 22:41, 2 June 2013 (UTC)
Actually, the feature is there, has been for years. Since you've been editing longer than I have, I assumed you knew that. And most people are more likely to read the banner than the categories. Rklear (talk) 22:56, 2 June 2013 (UTC)
Adding the parameter "|in=Virginia" would add text to the displayed banner that connects the photo request to Virginia, for people who don't spend all their time looking at categories. Rklear (talk) 00:42, 3 June 2013 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

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.
