Hey there. Since you provided the GA review, and it's a Maryland athlete, would you be able to provide some comments at the FAC? The last section is completely modified from them so you may want to double-cehcek to make sure it satisfies everything for you. Wizardman Operation Big Bear 17:48, 11 June 2011 (UTC)

Suggestion for WikiProject United States to support WikiProject Maryland[edit]

It was recently suggested that WikiProject Maryland might be inactive or semiactive and it might be beneficial to include it in the list of projects supported by WikiProject United States. I have started a discussion on the projects talk page soliciting the opinions of the members of the project if this project would be interested in being supported by WikiProject United States. Please feel free to comment on your opinions about this suggestion. --Kumioko (talk) 03:01, 17 August 2011 (UTC)

Shaughnessy[edit]

I made change to your article. I am looking forward to getting my hands on the book I made change in published work section. Since the article is a good article, I am copying/pasting contents of your article to the bert bell article and plugging in different values. Great job, btw. But I think there is even more sources out there on Shaggy. 66.234.33.8 (talk) 16:46, 20 August 2011 (UTC)

Your GA nomination of Lefty Driesell[edit]

The article Lefty Driesell you nominated as a good article has been placed on hold Symbol wait.svg. The article is close to meeting the good article criteria, but there are some minor changes or clarifications needed to be addressed. If these are fixed within seven days, the article will pass, otherwise it will fail. See Talk:Lefty Driesell for things which need to be addressed.

The review has been open for a few weeks now and you appear to be retired. Sorry have no choice but to fail it. Feel free to use the comments left at the review to improve the article and renominate if you return. AIRcorn (talk) 08:48, 14 September 2011 (UTC)

Howdy Myers, List of college men's lacrosse coaches with 250 wins[edit]

Strikehold, I been working on Howdy Myers and noticed that he isn't list on List of college men's lacrosse coaches with 250 wins. The NCAA record book credits him with 239 wins, but career statistics database shows another 22 wins with Hampden–Sydney. Was Hampden–Sydney NCAA varsity-level in those years? Thanks. Jweiss11 (talk) 17:38, 4 October 2011 (UTC)

I haven't been able to find a definitive answer to this, but it is my feeling that the NCAA record book is probably wrong. I've found other mistakes in those lists. I think you should add Myers to the article with his H-S records. Strikehold (talk) 01:57, 9 October 2011 (UTC)
Okay, sounds good. Thanks. Jweiss11 (talk) 22:20, 11 October 2011 (UTC)

WP:CBBALL discussion[edit]

Before making wholesale changes on certain types of navboxes at WikiProject College Basketball, we'd like to get some other editors' feedback. If you feel so inclined, there's a discussion at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject College Basketball#College basketball program navboxes - standards which could use some input from editors such as yourself. Thanks. Jrcla2 (talk) 01:42, 11 October 2011 (UTC)

Project banners and persondata[edit]

Strikehold, can I ask you to make a couple little adjustments to your SOP for new articles? Take a look at my edits on William W. Cobey. 1) All bio articles should have a persondata template. 2) If you could set the project banners up on the talk page as I've laid them out, it would make it a lot more efficient to do assessments. If there are more than three projects banners, there should be a WikiProjectBannerShell wrapper. Thanks. Jweiss11 (talk) 22:24, 11 October 2011 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (File:Alex Agase.jpeg)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:Alex Agase.jpeg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'file' 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 "File" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Hazard-Bot (talk) 04:01, 13 October 2012 (UTC)

Disputed non-free use rationale for File:Bob Pellegrini.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Bob Pellegrini.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this file on Wikipedia may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content. This can be corrected by going to the file description page and adding or clarifying the reason why the file qualifies under this policy. Adding and completing one of the templates available from Wikipedia:Non-free use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your file is in compliance with Wikipedia policy. Please be aware that a non-free use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for files used under the non-free content policy require both a copyright tag and a non-free use rationale.

If it is determined that the file does not qualify under the non-free content policy, it might be deleted by an administrator within a few days in accordance with our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions, please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you. Stifle (talk) 22:54, 2 February 2013 (UTC)

Survey: use of Chronicling America on Wikipedia[edit]

Strikehold:

My name is Donald Taylor and I'm the Wikipedian-in-Residence with the University of Maryland Libraries, Historic Maryland Newspapers Project. The Historic Maryland Newspapers Project is a part of the National Digital Newspaper Program, a joint program of the Library of Congress and the National Endowment for the Humanities. We are digitizing historic state newspapers for inclusion in the Library of Congress's Chronicling America online digital collection of America’s historical newspapers.

We are conducting a survey of Wikipedia contributors who have cited Chronicling America as a reference in their edits to Wikipedia. It is the objective of our study to identify ways that Chronicling America might be made a better resource for people editing Wikipedia. We recently used Linkypedia to identify contributors who have used Chronicling America. As an editor who has made use of Chronicling America, we hope that you will take our survey.

If you are interested in taking our survey, you can do so at this website.

More information about the survey is provided before you begin answering survey questions. Participation in the survey is strictly voluntary. It should take you less than thirty minutes to complete. You must be at least 18 years old to participate. If you have any questions about this survey, you can contact Donald Taylor, Wikipedian-in-Residence for the Historic Maryland Newspapers Project, at dwtii@umd.edu, or Elizabeth Caringola, Historic Maryland Newspapers Project Librarian, at ecaringo@umd.edu.

If you decide to take this survey, please do so within a week, by Wednesday, 31 July 2014.

Thank you for your contribution to our study.
