Athens of the west[edit]

What problem do you have with the poetic origin of the nickname "athens of the west" You've vandalized it twice now. First time under the guise of "poorly executed" amd later, under the editorially "not culturally significant". Did you know we were the first of many arguing to be the athens of the west? Including Cinti. With this poem, I feel gives the community "ownership" of the term in ways communities such as Berkley do not. While quaintly referred to as "AOTW" I do not agree that it is a current nickname like "horse Capital of the world" Lex Vegas, however crass, is more a common term for Lexington than AOTW. But in historical terms, I feel the poem adds credibility tot he claim. Not unlike a picture adds to an impression of the town. That is why I formatted it like I did, to make it like an inserted picture. --K3vin (talk) 22:30, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of "Pain Olympics"[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A page you created, Pain Olympics, has been tagged for deletion, as it meets one or more of the criteria for speedy deletion; specifically, it is about a website, but it does not indicate how it is important or significant, and thus why it should be included in an encyclopedia. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, and the guidelines for websites in particular.

You are welcome to contribute content which complies with our content policies and any applicable inclusion guidelines. However, please do not simply re-create the page with the same content. You may also wish to read our introduction to editing and guide to writing your first article.

Thanks. StaticGull  Talk  15:49, 20 July 2008 (UTC)

Commas[edit]

Hi Team, I know about serial commas and understand that different people and different guides have different preferences. But please see Wikipedia's Manual of Style: WP:COMMA. "There is no Wikipedia consensus on whether to use the serial comma (also known as the Oxford comma or Harvard comma), except where including or omitting such comma clarifies the meaning." None of the headings you changed were ambiguous. Ambiguity comes in if you have multiple ands (ie Passions, the Bold and the Beautiful, and General Hospital) or in other cases. But none of these were ambiguous and thus it's preferable to stick to the initial system and refrain from edit-warring. Also please be mindful of the three revert rule (WP:3RR). --JayHenry (talk) 00:33, 25 July 2008 (UTC)

Sorry, but to me they were all ambiguous. I read like a lawyer and I try to use as little inference as possible for the sake of clarity and communication. - Team4Technologies (talk) 00:39, 25 July 2008 (UTC)
Okay, but the fact you personally prefer serial commas doesn't mean you can add them to every article. Which of the headings were ambiguous to you? For example, how could "Childhood, itinerance and adolescence" mean something different from "Childhood, itinerance, and adolescence"? See, ambiguous has to be a case where there are two different meanings, and it's not clear which it is. That's not the case with these simple headings. So sometimes you have to allow articles already in a certain style to stay that way. --JayHenry (talk) 01:21, 25 July 2008 (UTC)
I've found that it's better to err on the side of caution. For example: "The Sprawl trilogy, The Difference Engine and the Bridge trilogy" may sound normal to you, but I can see where The Difference Engine and the Bridge Trilogy may be implied to be a part of the Sprawl Trilogy. That's why I dropped the commas in in the first place. - Team4Technologies (talk) 10:15, 25 July 2008 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Eugene Records[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Eugene Records, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process because of the following concern:

Not notable, most sources from myspace

All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page.

AfD nomination of Eugene Records[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

I have nominated Eugene Records, an article that you created, for deletion. I do not think that this article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and have explained why at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Eugene Records. 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.

Should The Infected (band) be moved to The Infected?[edit]

Since there is currently no page at The Infected, I feel like The Infected (band) should perhaps be moved there. I thought I'd ask your opinion first, though. --mikemorr (talk) 21:24, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

It seems to be best for Wiki to remove disambiguation. "The Infected" draws over three million hits from Google. That, and I'm not even sure the band is solid on having the "The" as part of the name. Sometimes they have it, sometimes they don't. So, maybe it'd be best to rename it to Infected (band). I would have to contact the band for clarification. - Team4Technologies (talk) 23:14, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

Ubuntu[edit]

Do not delete other's talk page comments[edit]

You have no right to delete other's talk page comments. Stop doing it. Effectively you are acting as if you have the right to prevent further discussion on the Ubuntu topic. There is no guideline saying that new sections of talk cannot be opened. Jason Quinn (talk) 19:58, 20 November 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, I'd have to vote for leaving it alone. While the point could be much better phrased, and is currently borderline NPA-violating, it's a valid point for discussion. --SarekOfVulcan (talk) 20:02, 20 November 2009 (UTC)

Taste[edit]

Hi -- regarding the edit you made, I agree with it, but in the interest of cooperation, would you please explain it briefly in the discussion that is taking place on the talk page? Regards, Looie496 (talk) 18:45, 30 November 2009 (UTC)

Philippine Science High School[edit]

I'm not vandalizing, but rather making the page more reliable. 2009 Gawad Barberong Inhinyero is not an award. Inventor of the Universal Lightweight Octothorpe Language (U.L.O.L) is not an award. Founder of Thinkers At the Edge (T.A.E.) is not an award. The said person is not a National Artist. --121.54.2.4 (talk) 05:20, 20 December 2009 (UTC)

Final warning for censorship without consensus[edit]

Stop hand nuvola.svg This is the final warning you will receive regarding your disruptive edits. The next time you disrupt Wikipedia, you may be blocked from editing without further notice. OhNoitsJamie Talk 01:37, 2 June 2010 (UTC)

For clarification, this message was in response to me removing a picture from the Tea Bag (sexual act) page as it was redundant to the article. I have no problem with the content of the article, but I think that the picture was not needed to support the material and only there for shock purposes. - Team4Technologies (talk) 02:34, 2 June 2010 (UTC)

Cite tag[edit]

While I am sure we are all busy, and we all strive for an accurate and verifiable wikipedia. It only took me 10 minutes to find an appropriate citation for this notable news item [1]. Perhaps wikipedia would be better off, if all editors tried to solve problems, instead of simply pointing them out. Had you taken slightly more action, there would have been no need to add the tag. My assumption is you are Lexington, KY based and would have recognized at least the anecdotal truth-fullness of the statement in which to conduct a boolean search for your requested citation K3vin (talk)

The burden of proof is not up to me. I don't know much about the topic that needed citation, so I left it to those that do to find the most appropriate documentation. - Team4Technologies (talk) 19:40, 13 September 2010 (UTC)

GNU/Linux[edit]

Please do not arbitrarily change Linux to GNU/Linux as you did at Ubuntu. First, Ubuntu doesn't use the term GNU/Linux. When the Ubuntu project refers to Linux, which they avoid, they just use Linux. Second, while Ubuntu was originally derived from Debian GNU/Linux (which does call itself that), it it now an independent distribution and does not go back to Debian for the basis of every new version. To call it a form of Debian is inaccurate. Third, such details belong in the article, not on the disambiguation page. Thanks. Yworo (talk) 19:23, 6 October 2010 (UTC)
