Pittsburgh

I knew a Steve Lux in Pittsburgh. Ever hear of him? Lou Sander (talk) 22:50, 24 June 2014 (UTC)

Lou Sander, no unfortunately not. Steve Lux, Jr. (talk) 13:17, 25 June 2014 (UTC)

A message

You just made a remark on my talk page i didn't like. My message to you is that you can crawl back under the rock you came out from.--Ezzex (talk) 21:34, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

I'm sorry that the obnoxious racist remarks you made on a page were completely out of line and were disliked by other users. You should be ashamed for making such a careless statement on a public encyclopedia.Steve Lux, Jr. (talk) 21:43, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for July 16

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Segway PT, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Schengen. 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.

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 09:00, 16 July 2014 (UTC)


Hopkinton Fair

Could you write an article about the Hopkinton Fair? RobertBolan (talk) 22:07, 16 July 2014 (UTC)

RobertBolan, I will start working on it Steve Lux, Jr. (talk) 22:19, 16 July 2014 (UTC)


Steve, the article looks amazing! I'm going to try and do one for the Deerfield Fair this weekend. Is it okay if use your article's formatting as a guide? RobertBolan (talk) 17:23, 17 July 2014 (UTC)

Robert, Go for it! Steve Lux, Jr. (talk) 17:25, 17 July 2014 (UTC)

Clegg Hoyt

The Clegg Hoyt article was deleted in 2013. This is a revised article with his Star Trek connection. He was in some seventy productions and should qualify for actor status. Billy Hathorn (talk) 18:42, 4 August 2014 (UTC)

Vanossgaming

This article was deleted and recreated after it was seen as not giving information about the person himself while it was marked to do so. I left a note on it saying so and as well saying that the infobox claiming it is about a person can be edited or, if needed, it can be removed. Please revise the deletion. JordiTK (talk) 15:35, 5 August 2014 (UTC)

The deletion notice will stay as the article does not qualify as being significant for an encyclopedia. Steve Lux, Jr. (talk) 15:37, 5 August 2014 (UTC)

I understand that an encyclopedia can't contain anything or anyone that is said to be important, but the article notes that the person is listed in the top 20 of popular channels on YouTube, and I see channels that are not even listed in the top 1000 and are still on this Wikipedia, does the person have to win an award first, or write songs, or play in movies? I think that a person that is known, liked and followed among at least 8 million people could be listed on a Wikipedia. I would like to hear how someone like him, Evan Vanoss, can be on a Wikipedia, since this is my first article and I could be prevented from making more of these articles of people that I think could have an article. JordiTK (talk) 15:50, 5 August 2014 (UTC)

We are NOT discussing other articles here. We are only discussing Vanossgaming and there isn't a single published reference to support the importance or need for this article. Steve Lux, Jr. (talk) 15:55, 5 August 2014 (UTC)

One last question; On the Wikipedia:Notability (people) page under the semi-section Entertainers is stated 'Has a large fan base or a significant "cult" following' would make the article allowed on this website. And yes, it is true that the person doesn't play part in anything that has to do with music, movies, donating to charity or anything else listed on the Notability page, but as said, he has a large fan base, so isn't it true that he can have an article? — Preceding unsigned comment added by JordiTK (talkcontribs) 16:13, 5 August 2014 (UTC)

I still have not seen any reference of published material reflecting such information. Steve Lux, Jr. (talk) 16:19, 5 August 2014 (UTC)

Clearly indicating on the article that he has such a fan base and linking, for example, to his YouTube channel, or a video made by him stating it, or a quote on a website stating this would be enough? No? JordiTK (talk) 16:33, 5 August 2014 (UTC)

None of what you mentioned are published sources. If a third party wrote an article in a publication, that may constitute as a published reference. Steve Lux, Jr. (talk)

True. I have searched for an article written by a third party about Evan Vanoss on the internet but I couldn't seem to find one. And I am not sure if licensed websites owned by third parties, showing the amount of subscribers he, and other youtubers, have, like the site named Vidstatsx, also count as a reference? JordiTK (talk) 17:15, 5 August 2014 (UTC)

I understand where you are coming from here. Articles such as Cory Williams is appropriate due to the published sources online. You would be better off including basic information in List of YouTube personalities and expand into its own article if published articles on the web become available. Steve Lux, Jr. (talk) 17:23, 5 August 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for your help. I suggest I should look for articles like 'Evan's fan base is exploding' or 'Vanoss reached 15 million subscribers' when Evan becomes more popular, but probably someone else already made an article for him by then... JordiTK (talk) 17:37, 5 August 2014 (UTC)

Yale–NUS College

Hi Steve Lux, Jr., Regarding your note on my page, the new Yale–NUS College page is a redirect that points to Yale-NUS College. I set the redirect because I found a few articles that used the en-dash (–) over the hyphen (-) and were being redlinked as a result. I've checked the official spelling and grammar conventions to confirm that this is the correct direction for the redirect. Is there a policy against this kind of typographic redirection? If not, I would prefer to keep the redirect. Nickknack00 (talk) 16:56, 5 August 2014 (UTC)

Faculty of Automotive and Construction Machinery Engineering

Please revert your edit. WP:A7 does not apply to educational institutions. Also, the title is already under discussion for deletion at Wikipedia:Redirects_for_discussion/Log/2014 August 5#Faculty of Automotive and Construction Machinery Engineering. —teb728 t c 21:09, 5 August 2014 (UTC)

Speedy deletion declined: .XYZ

Hello Steve Lux, Jr.. I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of .XYZ, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: I don't think that the content is sufficiently spammy and the page was created before the user was blocked, so unless I am mistaken G5 cannot apply here.suggest more clean up or AFD. Thank you. SmartSE (talk) 21:21, 5 August 2014 (UTC)

Alda Games

This page is not meant for advertising. It is small introduction of a small indie developer. What is wrong with that page? Lenght? Lack of information? Just tell me what is wrong and I can fix it, don´t just go around tagging pages for deletion. Thanks — Preceding unsigned comment added by Corwin888 (talkcontribs) 18:08, 6 August 2014 (UTC)

Question about page faculty of economy prilep

Hi Steve Lux, Jr. ,

I won't you ask about the page that I create Faculty of economics-Prilep

I won't to create that page because is important for my faculty. Because we already have a page on Macedonian and we want also to have all that information on English. Because we have a lot of student form other countries and we need all that information to be on English. I hope I will have understanding form your side and let me to create the page because is very important for us as a faculty.

Best regards,

Msc. Milena Boskoska

20:05, 6 August 2014 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Milenaboskoska (talkcontribs)

Milenaboskoska, no. There is simply no reason to have an article page for such a thing. A faculty or group such as this one shows no purpose or significance of having an article page on Wikipedia. Steve Lux, Jr. (talk) 20:20, 6 August 2014 (UTC)

I have unreviewed a page you curated

Hi, I'm Nafsadh. I wanted to let you know that I saw the page you reviewed, First Wind, and have un-reviewed it again. If you have any questions, please ask them on my talk page. Thank you. » nafSadh did say 23:36, 6 August 2014 (UTC)



Thank You

I will rewrite the article and try again. Bjoyce1 (talk) 15:10, 7 August 2014 (UTC)


Mr. CAP Article Retry

I rewrote the article, I am trying it again. Again, thank you for your help. Bjoyce1 (talk) 16:33, 7 August 2014 (UTC)

WhitesCantBeRaped

Hi! Just FYI, WhitesCantBeRaped isn't an article, it's a targeted redirect to a subsection of Hashtag activism. Quoting WP:PROD: "PROD is only applicable to mainspace articles, lists, and disambiguation pages; it cannot be used with redirects, userspace pages, templates, categories, or pages in any other namespace" (emphasis mine.) As such, I have removed your {{proposed deletion}} template from the redirect. NotBetaFive (talk) 21:15, 7 August 2014 (UTC)

Using PROD

Hi Steve. I have objected to your proposed deletion of Faculty of Economics-Prilep. Contrary to what you stated on the article, anyone, including the article's author, is allowed to remove a PROD tag and as Wikipedia policy explains, once the proposed deletion is objected to, no one may renominate it for deletion through PROD. This is different from speedy deletions (only the article's author may not remove CSD tags) and AfD (nobody may remove tag while discussion is in progress). If you still believe the article should be deleted, feel free to nominate it at Articles for Deletion and remember to notify the original author. While I understand that AfDs take more time than PROD, it is important that we adhere to policy and use it only for uncontroversial deletions. Thanks, Altamel (talk) 18:11, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

Deletion policy

According to WP:Deletion policy, A PROD tag once removed may not be restored; use WP:AFD but see first WP:BEFORE--nominators are expected to first make some effort at sourcing. DGG ( talk ) 15:55, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

Regarding ‘disc jockey’

I wrote that ‘disk’ is an American form of ‘disc’ and you say this isn't accurate.

No kidding. I know what you wrote, Meemo16. You made the change with no sources. If you cannot provide a reliable published citation to provide proof of this, you cannot add the information. Steve Lux, Jr. (talk) 12:39, 29 August 2014 (UTC)

Reliability of GraduatePrograms.com rankings

You have insisted that this material remain so can you please comment here on why you believe that this source meets our guidelines for reliable sources?

Re: "disruptive editing"

Your comment regarding my edit of List of members of the Parliament of Finland is flatly untrue. I forked to a new page with the same content as that section. I will fork it again because it is appropriate for its length. If you have a problem with it, take it up with admin. Good day to you. --RayneVanDunem (talk) 16:42, 13 April 2015 (UTC)

Segway PT

The IP is a long-banned / sock user who likes to add one often irrelevant change after another. Most recently Special:Contributions/108.73.113.2. See the IP's edit history; the linked word is usually enclosed in parens. See User:Arthur Rubin/IP list. Per wp:deny, the IP's edits are rolled back. No problem with someone else adding the change (or undoing my revert). Gotten a lot of undos this batch. Need to write a template! Cheers Ping me with {{u|Jim1138}} and sign "~~~~" or message me on my talk page. 17:34, 2 July 2015 (UTC)

Relisting RfDs

Hi Steve. Thanks for relisting an RfD, but when you do, make sure you actually move the discussion to the new day's page. The template doesn't do that automatically, unfortunately. (I think it might at AfD? Haven't been over there in a bit.) See {{Rfd relisted}} for full instructions. I kept that page open in another tab when I first started relisting RfDs and found I memorized the process fairly quickly. --BDD (talk) 13:35, 17 July 2015 (UTC)

OOPS! Thank you for the help BDD! I will be sure to complete this correctly next time. Thanks again. Steve Lux, Jr. (talk) 13:46, 17 July 2015 (UTC)

October 2015

Information icon Please do not write or add to an article about yourself, as you apparently did at Steve Lux Jr.. Creating an autobiography is strongly discouraged – see our guideline on writing autobiographies. If you create such an article, it may be deleted. If what you have done in life is genuinely notable and can be verified according to our policy for articles about living people, someone else will probably create an article about you sooner or later (see Wikipedians with articles). If you wish to add to an existing article about yourself, please propose the changes on its talk page. Please understand that this is an encyclopedia and not a personal web space or social networking site. If your article has already been deleted, please see: Why was my page deleted?, and if you feel the deletion was an error, please discuss it with the deleting administrator. Thank you.

Managing a conflict of interest

Information icon Hello, Steve Lux, Jr.. We welcome your contributions, but if you have an external relationship with some of the people, places or things you have written about in the article Steve Lux Jr., you may have a conflict of interest. People with a conflict of interest may be unduly influenced by their connection to the topic. For information on how to contribute to Wikipedia when you have a conflict of interest, see the conflict of interest guideline and frequently asked questions for organizations. In particular, please:

  • avoid editing or creating articles related to you, your organization, its competitors, or projects and products you or they are involved with;
  • instead, propose changes on the talk pages of affected articles (see the {{request edit}} template);
  • avoid linking to the Wikipedia article or website of your organization in other articles (see WP:SPAM);
  • exercise great caution so that you do not violate Wikipedia's content policies.

In addition, the Wikimedia Foundation's terms of use require disclosure of your employer, client, and affiliation with respect to any contribution for which you receive, or expect to receive, compensation.

Last but not least: All contributors must not contribute content that violates conflict of interest laws (just as all contributors must respect copyright). The Unfair Commercial Practices Directive is valid throughout the European Union. In a German court decision in 2012 (that also relied on the directive) regarding Wikipedia: "The court held that when a company edits a Wikipedia article, the resulting text falsely creates the impression that the edit has no business-related purpose. By implication, the judges found that the average reader of Wikipedia articles expects to find objective and neutral information." That is a very very important condition, comparable to the FTC Guide" that consumers are likely to believe reflects the opinions, beliefs, findings, or experience of a party other than the sponsoring advertiser”. This expectation by consumers of neutral information on Wikipedia, requires that companies not write "their" WP articles for PR/marketing purposes.

Editors who are compensated for their contributions should make the disclosure by placing the {{connected contributor (paid)}} template at the top of the talk page of affected articles and filling in the parameters. They should also supply this information as part of a list on their user page of all their paid contributions.

Please familiarize yourself with relevant policies and guidelines, especially those pertaining to neutral point of view, sourcing, and autobiographies. Thank you. Zpeopleheart (talk) 17:24, 21 October 2015 (UTC)

Recent citation entries for Library page

Steve, I hope I'm doing this correctly. You left me a message that my recent edit seemed to be a test and it was removed. Actually, no. I did an edit which was accepted, moving two libraries from the Reference Library to Research Library and adding a third Research Library that had been omitted. Then there was a message saying "Citation needed". So I did a couple of edits that were incorrect and that might have been what you saw. But the last thing I did was put <ref ref> with the citation after each of the libraries I moved and the one I added. They were all URL's. I'm not sure why this was incorrect or looked like a test. I wasn't sure how to enter the citations and the only info I could get from the help pages said to do this, put the citation between two ref markups. Please let me know how I should have done this differently. I'm new! Lakelandcrib 11/23/15 ~~~~ — Preceding unsigned comment added by Lakelandcrib (talkcontribs) 00:36, 24 November 2015 (UTC)

I have added nowiki tags, as your unterminated ref tags stopped your message from being displayed correctly. David Biddulph (talk) 13:38, 24 November 2015 (UTC)

pending changes reviewer

Hi - I placed pending changes on Krampus when addressing your request for page protection. I see you do not have pending changes reviewer status; if you would like me to assign that user right to you, I'm willing to do that so you can review pending edits to this and other articles. Just let me know by pinging me back here. :-) Katietalk 13:35, 5 December 2015 (UTC)

Katietalk, that would be great! Let me know what I may need to do to accept this right. Thank you very much. Steve Lux, Jr. (talk) 13:44, 5 December 2015 (UTC)

Hopkinton categories

Hi Steve - Great job setting up the Hopkinton category! It's always impressive to see how many articles exist that cover a certain topic. I have a request: would you consider taking the articles on people from Hopkinton and assigning them to a new subcategory, People from Hopkinton, New Hampshire? You could look at some of the other NH town categories (e.g. Hanover) to see how it's set up. Thanks, and happy editing! --Ken Gallager (talk) 20:39, 15 December 2015 (UTC)

Hi Ken Gallager (talk), like so? Steve Lux, Jr. (talk) 20:51, 15 December 2015 (UTC)
Yes, thank you for doing that. I added some categories so the People category can be found from other locations. --Ken Gallager (talk) 20:55, 15 December 2015 (UTC)

West Hopkinton

I took a look at your article under construction - looks like it's off to a good start. When I think of West Hopkinton, the mills in the village come to mind, so if you're able to find any historic details about specific companies used to operate there (do any still?), that would be a crucial part of the article. You could also mention the Hopkinton-Everett Reservoir dam. (And by trying to make that link I just realized there's another article that doesn't exist yet!) --Ken Gallager (talk) 20:48, 18 December 2015 (UTC)

Ken Gallager (talk thank you for looking! I agree, haven't had a ton of time today. I have some photos of the village around 1870-ish. I ended up focusing most of my research today on trying to find where the "boundary" may have been considered. A lot could be a part of this article, or just a little. I will be adding a lot as I go so if you have any other suggestions, feel free! Steve Lux, Jr. (talk) 20:52, 18 December 2015 (UTC)
