All the cool kids have discussion pages, so I'm going to give into peer pressure and have one, too!

Question[edit]

This is SportsMasterESPN, I noticed you used to work on Yahoo! Groups. I have a few questions for you. Is there anyway I could talk to you online?

Sorry, no (I don't use Messenger or anything like that). You can email me at my user name at mac.com. Stev0 22:25, 5 February 2006 (UTC)

Early web history[edit]

Steve, I know we've gotten onto different sides on some of the recent AfD disputes about websites (and I wish you'd stop calling people meatpuppets), and I'm sorry about that, but some of us are trying to turn that into something constructive with Wikipedia:WikiProject Early Web History, and as the former Useless Pages guy you could really contribute. Are you opposed to potentially having an article about the Useless Pages? Would you be willing to contribute some info? And of course, any other knowledge about the pre-1995 web you would be willing to share would be most welcome. Please check in at the project if you're willing. Hope to see you there. · rodii · 17:27, 26 February 2006 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/How to Make a Sprite Comic in Eight Easy Bits[edit]

I'm not sure if it matters or whether it will influence your vote, but if you take a look at "eight easy bits" on Google now, it only gives back 45 unique hits and about 300 in total. The reason for the high amount of links beforehand was because Google was indexing roughly 3000 links for a forum user with "eight easy bits" in his signiture. I do disagree with the synopsis that being launched in 2003 makes for a long running webcomic, it has only managed 97 strips and if you look at List of webcomics, you'll find many more webcomics which have lasted much longer. - Hahnchen 22:14, 31 March 2006 (UTC)

Actually, the List of webcomics convinced me even more to keep the article. I have not heard of 99.9% of those comics, and I'm not about to go through that whole list to figure out which ones I hadn't heard of are notable or not. Stev0 22:26, 31 March 2006 (UTC)
No worries, I've not heard of 99.9% of them either, but just felt that many had lasted for longer. - Hahnchen 22:29, 31 March 2006 (UTC)

Robert Swindells[edit]

I've given the article a quick brush up, as requested at the AFD, if you want to give it a look over. Cheers ! Angus McLellan (Talk) 15:23, 17 June 2006 (UTC)

Norwich, Massachusetts[edit]

My only concern is that folks can easily identify the town of Norwich and find its history, since there are many genealogical and historical references to Norwich. A true merger might help, yes...but with "Norwich" retained as a redirect to Huntington. Mel 05:05, 5 July 2006 (UTC)

Redirecting "Norwich, Massachusetts" to "Huntington, Massachusetts" makes sense. Stev0 15:27, 5 July 2006 (UTC)

CfD boilerplate[edit]

Why did you delete the daily nominations section? Why didn't you read the instructions?

--William Allen Simpson 02:47, 14 July 2006 (UTC)
I did? I didn't mean to, sorry. It was my first Category CfD; it's like an article CfD like I assumed it would be. Stev0 07:39, 14 July 2006 (UTC)

No, it's not. It has a different page layout. Different instructions. Different rules. AfD is similar to MfD, CfD is almost identical to TfD, and RfD is like they were 3 years ago.... Anyway, please read instructions. Use the subst:templates, instead of making it up as you go. Thanks.

--William Allen Simpson 13:06, 14 July 2006 (UTC)
I meant to say it's NOT like and article CfD. I did read the instructions, but obviously I got something wrong. Next time I'll get it right. Stev0 14:09, 14 July 2006 (UTC)

Aerial[edit]

Thanks for pointing out the picture was cropped as well as flopped in Aerial. I suspect the picture on the inside of the album cover is also from one of Joseph Edward Southall's, but I can't identify it online. WLD 17:37, 1 August 2006 (UTC)

Actually, thank YOU for pointing out the source of the painting; I never knew that before. Stev0 18:22, 1 August 2006 (UTC)

External Linking[edit]

Hey, I got your message. My apologies. Of course I'm trying to promote the site that I maintain however, the links I posted (I felt) pretained to the articles that I had linked them to. I've looked further at Wikipedia's NPOV policies and I see now that some of the links were not in line with this site's goals. However, some of the links on the site that I work for are truly relevant to these articles, non-biased and objective, and I will make further efforts to get these linked. Not just for means of self promotion but because they are relevant. Of course I will go through the proper channels from now on as well as work to add new content my own self, and overall to be a more responsible Wikipedia...er. Thanks for the heads up. --DMTayag 14:59, 26 September 2006 (UTC)

How was this vandalism reversion[edit]

Hi Stev0. I'm wondering how this revert was vandalism reversion. Granted, it was unsourced, but vandalistic? I don't think so. Why did you revert it as such? Picaroon9288 03:18, 1 October 2006 (UTC)

Every other edit that user made was vandalism. I couldn't find any information that confirmed what they said in Google, so it's safe to assume it was vandalism, too. If you can find information that confirms what they put in, feel free to put it back in. Stev0 03:51, 1 October 2006 (UTC)

Discography link = Spam?[edit]

Hi, I noticed you reverted a lot of musicbrainz links. In case you don't agree with linking to discographies you should perhaps voice your opinions here instead: Wikipedia talk:WikiProject MusicBrainz —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Dalen (talkcontribs) 13:38, 19 March 2007 (UTC).

A couple of days after I deleted the links, I actually looked at MusicBrainz. If someone wants to re-revert the pages, go for it; however, when a single user edits a lot of pages with nothing but adding a link to pages off a web site, I automatically assume it's spam. 99.9% of the time I'm right; arguably this is that 0.1% time where it's not. Stev0 23:47, 19 March 2007 (UTC)
Ok, true. Well, I noticed the link on several Artist pages but it was also missing on quite a few, so added it to them at the same time...--Dalen 09:39, 21 March 2007 (UTC)
You didn't do anything wrong. However, at the time I didn't do anything wrong, either (fighting spam is one of my highest priorities). If you want to re-add them, I promise I won't delete them (now that I know what MusicBrainz is - I did look at it before I went on my delete spree, and to be honest I wasn't impressed at all; however, I can see how it has potential); however, you might want to make a note somewhere so the next person that sees you adding nothing but a bunch of links to the same site at the same time doesn't delete them again.

Fair use rationale for Image:Wuthering_Heights_Single.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Wuthering_Heights_Single.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use. Suggestions on how to do so can be found here.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will 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. Videmus Omnia Talk 02:29, 8 August 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:King of the mountain single.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:King of the mountain single.jpg.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box.
