MedCab case[edit]

Hi, I was reading your MedCab case and had a very brief look at the page history, have you found some form of compromise, because the dispute appears to have quietened down... Addhoc 16:31, 9 September 2006 (UTC)

Do I respond here, or somewhere else?

Every time I broaden the scope of this article to include elements borrowed from dollhousing, this anonymous editor strikes it for no explained reason. I have avoided the back-and-forth editing until some form of mediation could be found.

There are some in this hobby who think it is only the domain of 12" [GI] Joe and his knock-offs [known as the green aisle (of the toy store)], but the vast majority of adult miniaturists have no qualms about going into the Barbie [pink] aisle in their search for scale items such as clothing, heads, furniture, civilian vehicles, animals, etc. Yes, the military and "voyages" genres both remain active parts of this hobby, but so are sci-fi, spies, PI's, westerns, sports/surfing, even fashion, cosmetology and romance. If it's popular in 1:1, it's represented in 1:6. But even if you subdivide the hobby into Fashion & Action (form vs. function), the Action subcategory is definitely broader than just military & voyages. And, once you start including female action figures [known as "femfigs"], the line becomes blurrier still. They still wear female clothing and have to do "something" with their hair, like their pink-aisle stepsisters, even if it does tend to be more "tomboyesque." This anonymous editor should not be allowed to keep deleting content without a wiki-fied explanation to justify his/her actions. Sextiliana Joe 19:52, 9 September 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for explaining. Addhoc 22:12, 9 September 2006 (UTC)

1. That "Sideshow" commentary is the same as what I edited, that seems to have set this contention in motion. Was it not wiki-quette(?) to do so?

2. Which parts read like a magazine article, as opposed to an encyclopedic entry? If they are parts I contributed, I would like to clean them up.

3. I knew about the "About.com" article, but I didn't realize it qualified as a reference. Sextiliana Joe 22:33, 10 September 2006 (UTC)


Hi Sextiliana Joe,
1. In this edit, I've removed a comment because I think it probably lacks the formality expected of an encyclopedia entry. Also, I think you are a very considerate Wikipedian and don't think you have in anyway infinged wikiquette.
2. I would consider the following sentence to be slightly informal "Add to the mix many who custom or scratch build 1:6 scale model military vehicles and armor and whole new issues are posed."
3. Yes, the article was top of the list in Google, so I expect you are familiar with it. Regarding whether it's good enough for a reference.. well, hopefully we can find a better replacement. However, I think if someone reverts you, should always try not to 'just' revert back. Its always best to present something new, which goes some way to explaining what you are trying to convey. That way you continue some form of communication instead of a sterile edit war. That's just my view though...

Barbie[edit]

There is a reply to your question about Barbie on the article's talk page.--Ianmacm 22:08, 24 November 2006 (UTC)

Correcting Articles[edit]

It is not necessary to highlight the error in the article itself as long as you have noted that there is an error in that section on it's talk page. Someone with more knowledge on the subject will look at the talk page and make the necessary corrections to the article. Keep up the good work! --Kf4bdy talk contribs 00:57, 19 May 2007 (UTC)

Female action figure[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on Female action figure, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a very short article providing little or no context to the reader. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content.

Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself. If you plan to expand the article, you can request that administrators wait a while for you to add contextual material. To do this, affix the template {{hangon}} to the article and state your intention on the article's talk page. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this.

Re: Female action figure[edit]

Sorry, but the only thing I can suggest is checking out WP:SEARCH. This will give you tips on how to search for an article and how to narrow and expand your search. On the other side Contribs|@ 02:30, 16 March 2008 (UTC)

If you want to request an article, please see WP:REQ. On the other side Contribs|@ 02:38, 16 March 2008 (UTC)

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.
