Please refrain from deleting informative sections of articles before discussing, cite your reasons and perhaps your edit may not be reverted --Frogsprog 20:31, 25 August 2006 (UTC)

Well no other editor has had a problem with the discrimination section, which I wrote myself to work alongside the other which i found fairly POV, and I have also seen very little opposition to in canada which I did not write, the only opposition really has been to a picture caption which may have been slightly POV. I am slightly suspicious that you may be an American and are attempting to remove any material that portrays the US in a bad light!--Frogsprog 20:45, 25 August 2006 (UTC)

Gustave Moynier (again)[edit]

Just as a side note, the German article about Moynier has reached FA status, so its English counterpart could benefit from a revamping :o). The German article is more than double in length and number of references by now, and it mentions some aspects of his life which are currently not to be found in the English version. Even if you don't have the time and energy for a translation, the extensions might be interesting for you to read. Best Regards, --Uwe 08:52, 28 March 2006 (UTC)

June Meetup in New York[edit]

Hi, I noticed you on a list of New Yorkers. If you are interested in around we are having a meetup Wikipedians in June. Take a peek at this and please tell any other Wikipedians that you think might be interested in participating about this event. Thanks. Alex756 02:25, 11 April 2006 (UTC)

Honorary Citizens of Vienna[edit]

The List of Honorary Citizens of Vienna (that I believe you created?) starts off with a 'Francis Rawdon' in 1797. I expect that the correct article for this person to link to should probably be Francis Rawdon-Hastings, 1st Marquess of Hastings, rather than the current link, which has become redundant. As you will see from the article, this Francis Rawdon held a number of titles including Lord Rawdon, Earl Moira, and latterly 1st Marquess of Hastings!

Do you have access to a source that will enable you to confirm the correct identity of this person? Thank you. Downhamhill 13:06, 20 April 2006 (UTC)

Yes, I just made it into a redirect. The German Wikipedia, from where I translated the article, has it link to Rawdon-Hastings. Of course, there is a possibility that could be incorrect. Tfine80 13:46, 20 April 2006 (UTC)

Self Harm page[edit]

Hi there, I'm getting in touch as you've done some recent work on the self-harm article. I've done a fair bit of study on this subject recently, so reckon I'm in a position to go through and get a good load of citations in there. What I propose, is moving to using the tag to make this easier, and then I'll go through and get citations in, and replace some of the "some people" type areas with referenced viewpoints, trying to get multiple view is where there are opposing views. Obviously this'll involve a bit of rewriting and adding so I wondered if you have any feedback on this before I start. Acidsaturation 07:42, 21 April 2006 (UTC)

Thanks ...[edit]

... and I'd be happy to meet you in Vienna. Unfortunately, I won't be here July 1 to July 8. Hope we can meet afterwards! All the best, <KF> 22:42, 24 April 2006 (UTC)

Great. Contact me via (kurt.forstner AT or, if you prefer giving me a call, 069919209003. See you then! <KF> 23:17, 24 April 2006 (UTC)

Dershowitz and Simpson[edit]

According to the O. J. Simpson murder case article, Alan Dershowitz was one of Simpson's lawyers. In that case, shouldn't Dershowitz also appear on Template:O.J. Simpson murder trial? —Lowellian (reply) 02:38, 25 April 2006 (UTC)

The template looks fine. Good job! —Lowellian (reply) 19:11, 25 April 2006 (UTC)

A big problem was having that template add the category, then not taking the time to see that it was done right. I've just spent considerable time fixing the indexing sort keys of all but one of the articles using this template. Gene Nygaard 00:51, 23 September 2006 (UTC)

New translation[edit]

Hi there, it would be nice if you could spend some minutes to proofread my newest translation Slavutych. Thanks in advance, --Uwe 19:20, 26 April 2006 (UTC)

Alpha Phi Alpha[edit]

thanks for your contributions and watching this page from being vandalized by "you know who". A lot of work has been done to the article because I'm trying to get it to Featured Article status, which mean it can appear on the main page of wikipedia. User:Jtmichcock, a non alpha has provided great copyedit to take it to the next level. Please send Jtmichcock a barnstar on his user page if you don't mind. 15:14, 27 April 2006 (UTC)

Alpha Phi Alha is now a Featured Article in wikipedia. Ccson 15:25, 13 May 2006 (UTC)

removal of information[edit]

Hello! The Cuba article is very hot at the moment. It would be best if you would first discuss any major edits on the talk page. Thanks, Myciconia 02:06, 6 May 2006 (UTC)

This was a minor, non-controversial edit. It is completely ridiculous to say that Cuba has done more than the rest of the world in helping Chernobyl victims. With no citation and a triumphal tone. I'm not surprised the article is controversial and receiving media attention. Huge sections are a joke. Tfine80 03:22, 6 May 2006 (UTC)

Help wanted[edit]

Do you still watch Anti-Americanism? Do you still care about the pernicious things that get said about America?

I want to remove it from my watchlist because of the headache but I'm dead-set to not remove because it will be hijacked immediately by editors who pop-up everyday and want to rant about GWB. I'm not asking for a look at every detail on the Talk, but a check-up when you're on this Wiki, maybe?... I don't mind disagreeing with you because it's fruitful; I'm just getting tired of disagreeing with people who seem to edit idiotically. Sorry to bother (again), Marskell 22:41, 12 May 2006 (UTC)

I hang about here too much and I know other people have limited time. I'm really glad you still have an interest in the article. It's "top-google", it's an obvious search topic, and it should be good. Marskell 23:15, 13 May 2006 (UTC)
Oh and: User:Marskell/AA. Potential new intro. I know basically every word is cited, but that's what you need to do when you wind up in edit wars with newbies... Marskell 23:17, 13 May 2006 (UTC)
I have endorsed and will make a fuller comment there (perhaps I'll wait and see if she reverts me again). It may be too soon for an RfC, but this editor is a clear POV-pusher. I believe she's in violation of 3RR (it's like five in 28 hours, plus one extra revert to your removing points on the list). I would suggest not adding the dispute tag. In an odd way this endorses her version as the one being argued over--it's the long standing version that belongs. Thus, if she reverts, revert her. I know reverts aren't an entitlement but I don't want to let her awful intro a foot in the door.
And do you like my new longer intro BTW? Marskell 10:06, 14 May 2006 (UTC)

Mediation request[edit]

A request for mediation has been filed with the Mediation Committee that lists you as a party. The Mediation Committee requires that all parties listed in a mediation must be notified of the mediation. Please review the request at Wikipedia:Requests for mediation/Anti-Americanism, and indicate whether you agree or refuse to mediate. If you are unfamiliar with mediation, please refer to Wikipedia:Mediation. There are only seven days for everyone to agree, so please check as soon as possible..

The request will be posted shortly. Note you just have to go there and agree to the mediation. Talk is getting us nowhere. Marskell 17:22, 15 May 2006 (UTC)


You're welcome. :-) SlimVirgin (talk) 22:00, 15 May 2006 (UTC)

Red Cross Article[edit]

Hi there, I kindly ask you to check today's changes to the article about the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement‎ made by User:Francis Schonken, and the respective discussion on the talk page of the article. I provided a number of reasons why I reverted this changes, and I sincerely believe the reasons to be valid and his reasoning to be based on a lack of insight into the complicated historical and legal grounds regarding the emblem issue. As I don't want to run into an edit war, I would be happy to get additional opinions from other users. --Uwe 15:37, 22 June 2006 (UTC)

İlham Əliyev[edit]

Do you agree that it's time to move this article? It's been 10 days since the survey began, the vote is +65% in favour of a move and the discussion seems to be spinning its wheels. Also, the article was originally moved to "İlham Əliyev" with no discussion whatsoever, so the current title seems illegitimate. Any thoughts? Pinkville 23:42, 8 July 2006 (UTC)

ICRC move[edit]

Hello again Tfine80, at long last I'm satisfied with my work on a new International Committee of the Red Cross article. It's still far from perfect, but it's a start. That article is at User:Draeco/ICRC, and I've proposed a move here. I hope you can take the time to give your opinion, you've done a lot of valuable work in the area. - Draeco 18:01, 17 July 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for joining WP:SYR[edit]

Hey, thanks for joining WP:SYR. It's such an amazing coincidence that we're both in both WP:SYR and Wikipedia: Wikiproject Vienna. I'm in Vienna now and grew up near Syracuse and went to college there. -newkai t-c 18:43, 3 August 2006 (UTC)

German currency[edit]

I am writing this because I stumbled upon one of your edit on "Franz Eher Nachfolger". Germany had many different currencies throughout the history. So I'd like to take this opportunity to present the quick cliff-note info.

Cheers. --Chochopk 07:32, 24 August 2006 (UTC)

Wikipedia:WikiProject Frankfurt[edit]

This is to inform you that the project page mentioned above, which you created, has no listed members. No listed members is one of the criteria for deletion. Please rectify this situation by adding a member list and yourself to that list. Thank you. Badbilltucker 18:12, 29 September 2006 (UTC)

Cuban missile crisis[edit]

Hey, I liked what you did there on the Cuban missile crisis page. Also introducing a link to an article I didn't know existed. Thanks.--Zleitzen 10:03, 18 October 2006 (UTC)

WikiProject Germany[edit]

Hi Tfine80,

I noticed you were the primary contributor to the Wikipedia:WikiProject Frankfurt. I don't know, if you know about this, but a WikiProject Germany was recently started up. Would you be interested in helping with that? The Frankfurt Project seems to be pretty much inactive to me, is that true? Would it make sense to simply merge into to the Germany Project?--CarabinieriTTaallkk 21:04, 19 October 2006 (UTC)

WikiProject Austria[edit]

Are you interested in joining WikiProject Austria? You can join here. Kingjeff 00:51, 16 November 2006 (UTC)


Hey Tfine. I just did a bit of flamethrowing on Anti-Americanism and noticed you'd been working today as well. Do you know if in-line citations can be provided for the quotes from Heidegger etc. in Anti-technology and Romantic hostility? Slowly, slowly in-line cites have been appearing in the article and this is one spot where they're needed, as direct quotes are used. Marskell 18:34, 13 December 2006 (UTC)

Document from Red Cross history[edit]

Howdy, (again) long time no see :). How has life been for you? Did you find some time to read the Junod book which I sent you? My question this time is whether you see any chance to find the full text of the following document: "Report of Charles S.P. Bowles, foreign agent of the United States Sanitary Commission, upon the International Congress of Geneva: For the amelioration of the Condition of the Wounded and Sick in Armed Forces in the field, convened at Geneva, 8th August, 1864". I'm currently reading a German book about Dunant, and the author (Martin Gumpert) provides some interesting excerpts from that report. It seems that reading the full report could provide some very interesting background information about the difficulties of the 1864 congress, and how the delegates finally managed to agree on the first Geneva Convention. And Charles Bowles seems to have played a very important role for the success of the conference. So all in all, his report seems to be a very interesting document, from a historical point of view. Any chances for you to find it in some public government archives, or some library via interlending? --Uwe 19:34, 14 December 2006 (UTC)

Protective sign[edit]

Hi there, hope you had a nice Christmas and a good start into the new year. If you have a couple of minutes, could you take a look at my newest contribution to the English Wikipedia - Protective sign - to correct any language glitches? Also, I'm not sure whether "Protective sign" is the most used English term for the German word "Schutzzeichen", so if you know a better lemma don't hesitate to move the article to a new lemma. And last but not least, you probably know better what terms should be used to create appropriate redirects. Best Regards, --Uwe 13:42, 9 January 2007 (UTC)

Stadtteile von Frankfurt am Main[edit]

You will find coats of arms and images for every borough - except Eschersheim and those that never had an own coa - of Frankfurt in Commons in commons:Category:Coats of arms of Frankfurt am Main and commons:Category:Boroughs of Frankfurt am Main. --EvaK 02:12, 14 January 2007 (UTC)

de:Liste der Präsidenten des Internationalen Komitees vom Roten Kreuz[edit]

Howdy, if you have some time and need some work, it might be a good idea to translate the above list which I've recently created. It would be a good surrogate for separate articles which the English Wikipedia lacks at present for most of the former ICRC presidents. --Uwe 18:23, 24 February 2007 (UTC)

Let me know if I can be of any help. My issue with translating this list for myself is that translation is much faster and gives better results when translating into the own native language. So translations from German to English are more efficient if you translate and I proofread the result. --Uwe 18:38, 25 February 2007 (UTC)

Your redirect of Alpargatas to Havaianas[edit]

You redirected Alpargatas to Havaianas in September 2006. Why did you do this? Havaianas are only a single product of Alpargatas S.A.. As it is, I'm going to revert your redirect. I hope to hear from you. Stale Fries taste better 17:37, 9 March 2007 (UTC)

Ah, thank you. I'll see what I can do about rewriting it. Stale Fries taste better 01:32, 11 March 2007 (UTC)

Erich Knauf[edit]

Thank you very much for the translation. Erich Ohser's son is an older man now. It is hard to believe that a son looses his dad so early and senseless who has written cartoons for the newspaper about the love to his child [1]. I have an old newspaper article with an interview with Ohsers son. – Simplicius 22:15, 15 April 2007 (UTC)

Look what I did ...[edit]

Normally I'm not the guy to brag about something, but this one I have to share with you: de:Wikipedia:Schreibwettbewerb. Guess which article I nominated in this contest :). --Uwe 19:17, 25 April 2007 (UTC)

AfD nomination of List of Schlager musicians[edit]

I've nominated List of Schlager musicians, an article you created, for deletion. We appreciate your contributions, but in this particular case I do not feel that List of Schlager musicians satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion; I have explained why in the nomination space (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and the Wikipedia deletion policy). Your opinions on the matter are welcome; please participate in the discussion by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of Schlager musicians and please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~). You are free to edit the content of List of Schlager musicians during the discussion but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion discussion. Thank you. Videmus Omnia 21:06, 4 July 2007 (UTC)

Help needed for proof reading[edit]

I take part in the translation project about the geneva conventions. the user UW told me i could asked you for help. i now finished the main translation work and need someone for proofreading. according to UW your german is also very well and that would of course be in favour of the project. send me a mail to or a message via icq to 232055674 if you wanna help. i then will send you some comments and the word document including my translation. good night. - Yamok 21:01, 24 August 2007 (UTC)

Hello again, if you have the time I kindly ask you to support this effort. I think the topic has a high relevance, and the English article is mediocre or even less than that. And a native speaker like you with an excellent command of the German language might be the greatest help for this translation project. --Uwe 12:20, 26 August 2007 (UTC)

Syracuse rises again...[edit]

Hi Tfine80 – Just a note to claim that Wikipedia:WikiProject Syracuse, New York is at least somewhat revived, with a couple people contributing and a good number of new articles.

Proposed deletion of Gerald Freihofner[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

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

Nothing to indicate more notable than an average journalist

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.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because, even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.

GA reassessment of Swedish literature[edit]

GA onhold.svg This article has been reviewed as part of Wikipedia:WikiProject Good articles/Project quality task force in an effort to ensure all listed Good articles continue to meet the Good article criteria. In reviewing the article, I have found there are some issues that may need to be addressed, listed at Talk:Swedish literature/GA1. I will check back in seven days. If these issues are addressed, the article will remain listed as a Good article. Otherwise, it may be delisted (such a decision may be challenged through WP:GAR). If improved after it has been delisted, it may be nominated at WP:GAN. Feel free to drop a message on my talk page if you have any questions, and many thanks for all the hard work that has gone into this article thus far. Jezhotwells (talk) 19:29, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

Wikipedia's tagline[edit]

Hi. I noticed that you participated in a 2005/2006 discussion and straw poll on whether or not the tagline at the top of all Wikipedia articles should be changed from "From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia" to "From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia that anyone can edit". I don't know if you're still interested in this issue or not, but this exact change has been proposed once again, this time at the Village pump, and there is currently an RFC (Request for Comment) on the subject where it is being discussed.

You are now a Reviewer[edit]

Wikipedia Reviewer.svg

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, is currently undergoing a two-month trial scheduled to end 15 August 2010.

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under pending changes. Pending changes is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial. The list of articles with pending changes awaiting review is located at Special:OldReviewedPages.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles (talk) 18:04, 18 June 2010 (UTC)

Would you like to help improve Wikipedia's coverage of topics related to the National Archives and its incredible collection? This summer, the National Archives—which houses some of America's most important historical documents—is hosting me as its Wikipedian in Residence, and I have created WP:NARA to launch these efforts.

There are all sorts of tasks available for any type of editor, whether you're a writer, organizer, gnome, coder, or image guru. The National Archives is making its resources available to Wikipedia, so help us forge this important relationship! Please sign up and introduce yourself. Dominic·t 15:22, 22 June 2011 (UTC)

Ferdinand Maack[edit]

Hi, I could find precious little about the subject to expand my article-creation, but I did notice the German counterpart was well-developed (no surprise). Many years ago ich hab funf yahr in der schule auf Deutsch gelernen, aber mein Deutsch ist sehr schlecht as you can see, and Babel didn't help much either! So any attention you might be willing & able to give in future toward expansion from the German would certainly be appreciated! Sincere, Ihardlythinkso (talk) 00:46, 28 December 2011 (UTC)

National Archives ExtravaSCANza[edit]

Hey, I just realized that you are not on the invite list for Wikipedians I was using, so I just wanted to make sure you saw this. Hope you can make it! Dominic·t 22:32, 3 January 2012 (UTC)

You are invited to the National Archives ExtravaSCANza, taking place every day next week from January 4–7, Wednesday to Saturday, in College Park, Maryland (Washington, DC metro area). Come help me cap off my stint as Wikipedian in Residence at the National Archives with one last success!

This will be a casual working event in which Wikipedians are getting together to scan interesting documents at the National Archives related to a different theme each day—currently: spaceflight, women's suffrage, Chile, and battleships—for use on Wikipedia/Wikimedia Commons. The event is being held on multiple days, and in the evenings and weekend, so that as many locals and out-of-towners from nearby regions as possible can come. Please join us!

Coordinator sought for the US National Archives WikiProject[edit]

NARA Logo created 2010.svg

Greetings, WikiProject US National Archives member!

We are seeking a coordinator to help reboot the project and work on new initiatives! The role is modeled after other Wikiproject coordinators, like the WikiProject Military History coordinators. The coordinator will work with the Wikipedian in Residence to organize and increase participation in the WikiProject, with the goal that the WikiProject is an active space for collaboration maintained by and for the Wikipedia editors, rather than the National Archives.

Please see the full information at Wikipedia:GLAM/NARA/Coordinator and contact me is you have any questions. Feel free to pass this note along to any interested parties. Thanks! Dominic·t 21:07, 19 June 2012 (UTC)

Non-free rationale for File:Whispersonthecolor.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Whispersonthecolor.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under non-free content criteria, but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia is acceptable. Please go to the file description page, and edit it to include a non-free rationale.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified the non-free rationale on those pages too. 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 any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 10:14, 2 July 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for September 25[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that you've added some links pointing to disambiguation pages. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Downtown Community House[edit]

Hi. In creating Downtown Community House, your edit summary said, "Adapted from Report by Kate Reggev, Entered into CC-BY-SA 3.0 License and the GFDL by Save Washington Street," which I took at face value. Another editor has noticed and tagged the potential copyright violation. I think you need to get an email sent to permissions-en AT wikimedia DOT org to clear this up. Please read WP:PERMISSIONS very carefully and follow those instructions as closely as you can (it is very easy to get wrong.) Thanks. —Cupco 02:16, 26 September 2012 (UTC)

I was the tagging editor. I've since removed the tag but it would be best to follow the regular process for free licensing material. Sorry about this. And since it is your text the correct page would I believe be Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials, rather than WP:PERMISSIONS? Shawn in Montreal (talk) 02:29, 26 September 2012 (UTC)
I commissioned the report and can release it. Tfine80 (talk) 02:50, 26 September 2012 (UTC)
Even if that's so, the article should still bear some form of license statement should it not? And secondly, my limited understanding of copyright law is that the author still retains some rights, and her agreement to release may be needed. Shawn in Montreal (talk) 12:02, 26 September 2012 (UTC)
Ok. I will try to get some kind of release to post. Tfine80 (talk) 15:47, 26 September 2012 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

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.
