Elizabeth K

It is extremely unlikely that her husband will be elected president, therfore your inclusion violates speculation of future events. Please refrain from adding this material when it involves a future event that has almost zero chance of occuring in the future. Arzel (talk) 00:07, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

You disagree? That is not a very good argument. Can you at least read WP:CRYSTAL which states quite clearly. Wikipedia is not a collection of unverifiable speculation. All articles about anticipated events must be verifiable, and the subject matter must be of sufficiently wide interest that it would merit an article if the event had already occurred. Arzel (talk) 04:14, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

Hi TJRC, thank you for your message on the my page. Agree a definition, and a see also link to Computer font should do it. I hope. CApitol3 (talk) —Preceding comment was added at 13:46, 5 January 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of The Pop Shop Gallery & Stuido

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on The Pop Shop Gallery & Stuido requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not indicate the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for biographies.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the article's talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

James Watson link

The red link I added to James Watson (DNA: The Secret of Life) was actually an article I was just about to save, but my FireFox has now frozen up completely such that I can't even get the text out of it (or close it!). FYI however, the red links page you linked to says I should link to a page that I intend to create, so don't be too overzealous removing these things (sometimes I also create a talk page before I've saved the page, for example, and some articles get deleted before the author finishes fleshing them out). Sadly I'm too annoyed at losing the article that I probably won't be recreating it for some time, so I'll leave it blank, and probably only add the link again after I've saved it.

Yikes, thank you for finding the quote. I'm not sure if he echoed her statement but the ref has her quote so that's better anyway. Not sure what I had seen but my apologies and thanks for catching it. Benjiboi 02:32, 18 January 2008 (UTC)

AfD nomination of Ronnie Lake

I have nominated Ronnie Lake, an article you created, for deletion. I do not feel that this article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and have explained why at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Ronnie Lake. Your opinions on the matter are welcome at that same discussion page; also, you are welcome to edit the article to address these concerns. Thank you for your time. Redfarmer (talk) 19:14, 22 January 2008 (UTC)

Restoring deleted articles

Hi TJRC - you wrote: Hi, Grutness. I saw your comment on Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Ronnie Lake that very little is lost on Wikipedia, even if the article is deleted. I know that's true when text is deleted from an article, but is that also the case where the article itself is deleted? Can a mere editor obtain the text of a deleted article?

No, but it's one of the extra tools that admins have. If the character does turn out to be a regular character, find a friendly admin (like me), explain the situation and point them at the AFD debate. Chances are they'd be willing to restore the deleted material. Generally the only time that deleted articles are wiped completely is for legal reasons (e.g., if the article was libellous). Grutness...wha? 00:13, 23 January 2008 (UTC)

nag boxes

I see you're a fan of those big ugly nag boxes, even when they've been sitting atop articles for more than a year without causing anybody to actually do anything to improve the article.

That's my argument against them: They are often used as an alternative to improvement - somebody sees a crummy article, slaps a nag box atop it, and then feels like they've helped, thus removing their incentive to actually do some editing.

Aside from boxes which are needed to warn readers to take extreme caution (e.g., NPOV) they do more harm than good. Lesser subjects, such as the need for in-bound links or more references, should be put on the Talk page. (In my opinion, of course - many disagree.) - DavidWBrooks (talk) 19:13, 13 February 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Tomboy (band)

Tomboy (band)

Hi TJRC - you wrote:

I had an article that I wrote last night deleted out from under me based on a claim of non-notability. This is frustrating, I've lost all the work. You've told me before that a deleted article can be retrieved by a friendly admin. Can you do that and get me a copy? I'd like to edit it in my sandbox, address the notability issue and replace it. If it gets eventually deleted after a discussion on the merits, I'm fine with that, but this was way unilateral. Gheezh, I know there's "speedy deletion," but it's pretty absurd to delete something just a few hours after it's created, advising the creator that he can use the {{hangon}} template, but deleting it anyway so that's not possible. And this was deleted overnight. There was never any chance to respond. If this is the practice, what's the point of the hangon template?

I've put the article at User:TJRC/Tomboy (band) - you should be able to work on it there without problems. As to {{hangon}}, unfortunately there's often not much lag between a CSD template going on and someone coming along and deleting an article. I suppose there should be a lag of say, 24 hours, but often articles are so obviously deletable that there's never been an official time lag put in place. the downside of that, of course, is that sometimes articles get deleted simply because two editors (a non-admin applying the notice and an admin doing the actual deletion) independently think an article is speediable. As for it being overnight, that's one of the things about WP being worldwide. It may have been overnight for you, but not for the other editors involved. {{Hangon}} does work, but unfortunately there's ot always the chance to use it. :/ Grutness...wha? 21:50, 21 February 2008 (UTC)

Helen Keller photo

The copyright law and commentary pages I've read don't call out this exception, other than the vague "unless it was already in the public domain" exception.

Did the old law cover photographs which were never published prior to 1998?

Please update-and-improve any Wikipedia and Wikimedia copyright-related FAQs, with pointers to the old laws and any relevant case law, so others don't fall into this same confusion in the future. Thanks.

Oh, and I'm very glad to be wrong on this. davidwr/(talk)/(contribs)/(e-mail) 20:19, 6 March 2008 (UTC)

D. B. Cooper

Thanks. You've done some good work with the article, as well. I'm thinking of bringing the article to FAC within the week.

  • Thanks for backing me up on "Scotland Yard" in the D.B. Cooper article. If we want to call it a headquarters, fine, but then it is the headquarters of the territorial police force for Greater London - that makes it a law enforcement agency.Harry Yelreh (talk) 20:19, 26 March 2008 (UTC)

Deletion of NASA template in Talk:Apollo 11

Hi, I see you deleted the NASA template from Talk:Apollo 11. Please note that the outcome of the tfd was redirect to Template:PD-USGov-NASA, not delete. I'm correcting it in this article, but if you're deleting it in others, please go back to your deletions and replace with the correct template. Otherwise valuable information is being lost. Thanks. TJRC (talk) 01:31, 30 March 2008 (UTC)

{{PD-USGov-NASA}} is for images, not text. I don't think we need to include this attribution template directly onto articles, especially since that text is open to change from people outside NASA. NASA should of course be attributed in the edit summary whenever we copy from them. —Remember the dot (talk) 01:35, 30 March 2008 (UTC)

van Rossum vs. Van Rossum

Regarding your edits to Python (programming language), please re-read the page you yourself cited (http://www.python.org/~guido/):

Spelling: my last name is two words, and I'd like keep it that way, the spelling on some of my credit cards notwithstanding. Dutch spelling rules dictate that when used in combination with my first name, "van" is not capitalized: "Guido van Rossum". But when my last name is used alone to refer to me, it is capitalized, for example: "As usual, Van Rossum was right."

Note the last sentence. In all of the occurrences of "Van Rossum," "Van" should be capitalized; all the occurrences of "Guido van Rossum," it should not. Tlesher (talk) 18:27, 1 April 2008 (UTC)

Alphonso Jackson

I've reverted your revert of the resignation statement in the section Alphonso Jackson#Conflict of interest investigation, for two reasons:

  1. The statement's reference repeats the tag used in the introduction, and so creates a redundant entry in the "References" section. If the reference is to be used more than once, it should be given a name and referred to by that name in subsequent references; see WP:FOOT#Naming a ref tag so it can be used more than once.
  2. Until there is a verifiable connection between the alleged conflict of interest and the resignation, any talk about the resignation has no place in that section.

House Report 94-1476

Thanks! Would love to have some more proofreaders inspect the page scans — see s:Index:H.R. Rep. No. 94-1476 if you’ve got any free time. Tarmstro99 (talk) 15:59, 4 April 2008 (UTC)

The color key for the index page is explained at s:Template:PageQuality. In brief: green = all done; yellow = probably OK, just needs another pair of eyes to look it over and spot any problems (and promote it to green if there are none); red = major formatting and cleanup still to do (generally these are still raw OCR output — and furthermore, the remaining red pages are all part of a section of the document where the OCR’ing is especially poor due to the nature of the original content). If you want to go after the low-hanging fruit, go with the yellow pages; I’ll be tackling the red ones a few at a time. Thanks for any help you have the time to offer, and I’m pleased to hear of your interest in the work. I teach Copyright also, and it’s rather surprising that this report hasn’t been freely available online before now. (I’ll probably turn to the 1975 Senate report and the 1961 Register of Copyrights report when this one is complete.) Tarmstro99 (talk) 19:35, 4 April 2008 (UTC)

Conclusion: Image placeholders centralized discussion

Hi. I'm sending this to you because you participated in the Centralized discussion on image placeholders that ended on 23 April.

That discussion must produce a conclusion.

We originally asked "Should the addition of this box [example right] be allowed? Does the placeholder system and graphic image need to be improved to satisfy policies and guidelines for inclusion? Is it appropriate to some kinds of biographies, but not to others?" (See introduction).

Conclusions to centralized discussions are either marked as 'policy', 'guideline', 'endorsed', 'rejected', 'no consensus', or 'no change' etc. We should now decide for this discussion.

Please read and approve or disapprove the section here: Conclusion --Kleinzach (talk) 11:15, 30 April 2008 (UTC)

copyright

According to answers.com, copyright, verb, means "To secure a copyright for." Under current law, a copyright is secured upon creation. Put another way, works are automatically copyrighted.

Rollback

After reviewing your request for rollback, I have enabled rollback on your account. Keep in mind these things when going to use rollback:

  • Getting rollback is no more momentous than installing Twinkle.
  • Rollback can only be used to revert vandalism only, and not good faith edits.
  • Rollback may be removed at any time.

If you do not want rollback, then contact me and I'll remove it. Also, for some information on how to use rollback, you can view this page. I'm sure you'll do great with rollback, just leave me a message on my talk page if you run into troubles or have any questions about appropriate/inappropriate use of rollback. Happy editing!

Alaska Supreme Court

What is up with this edit? This is about the only supreme court that does not include this template. It is fairly standard at Category:United States political leader templates to include templates on both the office and the officeholder articles. See also U.S. state Chief Justices, U.S. State Secretaries of State, U.S. State Treasurers, Speakers of U.S. state Houses of Representatives, and U.S. State Attorneys General.--TonyTheTiger (t/c/bio/WP:CHICAGO/WP:LOTM) 20:51, 8 December 2008 (UTC)

The position is Alaska Supreme Court Chief Justice, which should redirect to Alaska Supreme Court, which is the same reason it is on all the other Supreme Court Pages. Look at all five of those template pages don't link to Attorney General, Secretary of State, etc. They link to New York Attorney General, Illinois Secretary of State, etc. A few dozen editors of all these templates seem to agree on this logic.--TonyTheTiger (t/c/bio/WP:CHICAGO/WP:LOTM) 21:06, 8 December 2008 (UTC)

Wikipedia's 3RR

in regards to the article on Christopher Cox, the outgoing Chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission, Wikipedia has this rule - 3 reverts only. I contacted someone who I thought was an administrator to report this problem before. He/she gave me a couple of useful links to report problems to a Wikipedia administrator. You can find the links on my talk page. I already reported this problem to the Admin who handles revert wars. He/she may have to block 71.217.3.20 and possibly Tycoon24 too if he/she continues with this battle. Ronewirl (talk) 01:08, 23 December 2008 (UTC)

Article on Christopher Cox

Nuvola apps important.svg You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war. Note that the three-revert rule prohibits making more than three reversions on a single page within a 24 hour period. Additionally, users who perform a large number of reversions in content disputes may be blocked for edit warring, even if they do not technically violate the three-revert rule. If you continue, you may be blocked from editing. Please do not repeatedly revert edits, but use the talk page to work towards wording and content that gains a consensus among editors. If necessary, pursue dispute resolution. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Ronewirl (talkcontribs)

This same editor dropped the same unwarranted template on my talk page, also without signing it. JohnnyB256 (talk) 03:04, 31 December 2008 (UTC)
