Revision3 Studios

Hi. I noticed that you voted to keep the Systm article on Wikipedia:Votes_for_deletion/Systm. Well, unfortunately, the article was deleted, and Systm was redirected to Kevin Rose. I recently created a new article for Revision3 Studios, the company that produces System and thebroken, and changed Systm to redirect there. Unfortunately, the Revision3 Studios article has now been nominated for deletion.

So, if you have a chance, please look at the Revision3 Studios article, and then go to Wikipedia:Votes for deletion/Revision3 Studios and vote to keep it. Thanks a lot, --taestell 16:56, Jun 22, 2005 (UTC)

GNAA x 2

There is a comment up the top. They can't miss it! But I agree that 6 times is too many. This will be the last vote. - Ta bu shi da yu 06:24, 12 July 2005 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up

It certainly shouldn't have been removed (I didn't notice this!). I have:

  • readded the notice
  • noted what I've done on the talk page
  • noted the issue on WP:AN
  • made a comment on Gmaxwell's page.

The way I see it, anyone who relists that article on AfD is being disruptive. - Ta bu shi da yu 02:33, 3 October 2005 (UTC)

An image or media file that you uploaded, Image:Seuss cat in hat icon.gif, has been listed at Wikipedia:Images and media for deletion. Please look there to see why this is (you may have to search for the title of the image to find its entry), if you are interested in it not being deleted. Thank you.

Thanks for the kudos

Specifically, my first barnstar! It's much appreciated, and I'm glad to see you've liked the Puhdys, Tamara Danz, and Silly (band) articles. I hope I'll get around to finishing the first of these and working on others, like City (band), Pankow (German band), Renft, and Stern-Combo Meißen at some point...

Kinsey

You removed this paragraph from Alfred Kinsey with a single sentence of justification in the edit summary.

Alfred Kinsey's two volumes became the manifestoes of sexual revolution and the counterculture. However, That was not the intention of the scientist from Indiana. Kinsey, himself, was a life long Republican, and his research was sponsored by the Rockefeller Foundation, established by the moderately conservative Rockefeller Family.

I disagree with this edit for two reasons: The paragraph doesn't explicitly state that he was conservative, just that he was a member of the Republican Party (which is verifiable and factual, and could be ) and that he did not intend the massive social change that his papers caused (also can be verified (or refuted) with sources). Perhaps the "manifestoes" part could be re-worded, but I think it's certainly important to acknowledge the social effects of the reports. Unless you can convince me otherwise, I'm re-inserting the text, because I think it's removal takes away from the article, and possibly compromises the NPOV. --TexasDex 07:31, 29 January 2006 (UTC)

Read the talk page! I put the expanation there when I did it. The paragraph implies with an anachronism--his association with the Republican party (which most liberals and progressives were members of until the late 60s and early 70s) and the political orientation of the politically neutral Rockefeller Foundation. The use of the word manifesto is riduculous. If you can rewrite the paragraph so that anachronistic interpretation of his political associations isn't likely to be made and using a different word than manifesto, and without making the ridiculously weak inference that because the Rockefeller foundation was established by a conservative family everyone they fund must be conservative, and leave whatever useful information there might be in the paragraph (of which I'm hard pressed to find.) then rewrite it. Check the talk pages first, I put all this in there. --Brentt 23:18, 29 January 2006 (UTC)

Poison Dart Frog Naming

Hi,

I am currently working on improving the articles about the poison dart frogs. I have started by creating all the genus articles, but something has struck me while I was working on them. Almost all of the species articles are titled by their scientific name. According to the Tree of Life guidelines, articles should be named by their common name, and if their is none, by their scientific name. I noticed that you created some of the articles, and I would like your opinion in the discussion on Talk:Poison dart frog. It would be easier to reach consensus about all the articles in one place than to have to do it on each individual page. Thankyou. --liquidGhoul 00:12, 22 July 2006 (UTC)

Camp Hill High School

Thanks for your comments regarding my work on the CHHS page. I will tell though, that I actually wrote all of the history content on the Camp Hill School District homepage, when I was a senior at the school in 2000. I helped build the 2nd version of the school district website (the first version was developed in '97 by members of the class of '99) and wrote complete background histories of all of the schools. I still have the content on disk somewhere. So in reality, the history content isn't plagarism; however, I completely understand where your coming from and can except your reasoning for paraphrasing it. You did a good job with it. Take care, Wrightchr 01:46, 9 February 2007 (UTC)

sorry I missed the CF vandalism

Hi there, sorry I missed the vandalism in the CF article, I thought that the anon user had removed all of his/her changes, but I guess I wasn't looking hard enough. Thanks for catching and removing the vandalism. --Kyoko 07:31, 11 February 2007 (UTC)

Barbara Kingsolver

Though my last edit to the Barbara Kingsolver page was deleted, I was wondering if I would be able to create a new section under the title "Controversial Feminism," seeing as how the vast majority of the male characters in Kingsolver's novels are portrayed in the most negative light possible. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Poon dawg (talkcontribs) 09:04, 12 February 2007 (UTC).

Notability of GSI commerce

A tag has been placed on GSI commerce, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article seems to be about a person, group of people, band, club, company, or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in Wikipedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not assert notability may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, and if you can indicate why the subject of this article is notable, you may contest the tagging. To do this, add {{hangon}} on the top of the page (below the existing db tag) and leave a note on the article's talk page explaining your position. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would confirm its subject's notability under the guidelines.

For guidelines on specific types of articles, you may want to check out our criteria for biographies, for web sites, for bands, or for companies. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. SatyrTN (talk | contribs) 14:37, 1 April 2007 (UTC)
