Welcome to my talk page. If you've come to complain, whine, moan, question my judgment, my intelligence, my sanity, or tell me off in any way, that's fine. I'm a big girl who can take it. If you've come to chat, compliment me, have a laugh, or discuss articles that's even better.Theresa Knott Sig.gif

Template error[edit]

I noticed you added a {{uw-ublock}} template to a user page with a rude username, but the template should be preceded with subst in the form of {{subst:uw-ublock}} as it will make the username visible. It also helps to prevent significant template vandalism by keeping the categories separate from the message itself. mechamind90 01:47, 26 May 2010 (UTC)

Thanks, it was an oversight on my part. Theresa Knott | Hasten to trek 04:51, 26 May 2010 (UTC)

British Museum[edit]

I'm not here to complain, whine, moan; question your judgement, intelligence, or sanity; nor to tell you off.

Instead, I am here to beg, plead, wheedle; compliment your fine judgement, excellent intelligence, and lasting sanity; and to encourage your continuing in that vein ...

... at the British Museum on Friday. All you need to do is confirm that you're coming. Easy! :-) Here's the link to help you, in case you'd forgotten: http://uk.wikimedia.org/wiki/Backstage_Pass#Sign_Up

My Unblocking[edit]

"LordofGifts do not deliberately insert bias into our articles ever again. It's stupid and will lead to another block very quickly."

No problem, babe - after all, there are many more amusing online time-wasters than this...;o). Just don't pretend that that you or the articles I corrected are the slightest bit less biased than I am: what we have here is simply a question of who has control of the censorship axe.

Nice Judge Judy-ish tone, BTW. Strongly redolent of riding crops & cigars.

Re: User:Roy10266 and WP:AIV[edit]

I tossed up a response to your decline on WP:AIV today that you might want to take another look at. As far as I can tell this user IS continuing to edit war, under WP:3RR's definition of exceeding 3RR as definitionally being that. It's no big deal, I'm not trying to be dramatic, I'm just suggesting perhaps you might want to take another look and see if you want to let your decision stand as-is or not. - Vianello (Talk) 20:34, 22 October 2010 (UTC)

Translation[edit]

I'm not sure I followed your action and edit summary here: http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wikipedia:Administrator_intervention_against_vandalism&diff=392872179&oldid=392871901 Thanks.--Epeefleche (talk) 02:13, 26 October 2010 (UTC)

Laughs! I probably could have given a better summary. I removed the IP from the list because it was a shared address and the vandalism had stopped several hours earlier so no blocking was needed. The Grrr! was a note of frustration because you hadn't bother to actually revert the vandal that you had reported. When dealing with vandals, undoing the vandalism is always the most important step, way more so than reporting the IP to the admins. I should have actually told you this last night; I was tired and in a funny mood so I didn't bother. Theresa Knott | Hasten to trek 09:19, 26 October 2010 (UTC)
Ahah. Tx. You are absolutely correct ... I should have reverted them. Was tired as well I imagine; usually do. As to the block, I actually think it would have been appropriate -- a few hours is not a long time IMHO, even with a shared IP. and the vandal edits emanating from that IP are sufficient to be troubling. But I imagine reasonable people can differ.--Epeefleche (talk) 12:03, 26 October 2010 (UTC)
And the IP returns today, with some inappropriate synth/OR editing. See http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Norv_Turner&diff=prev&oldid=392985641 Its quite a long list of warnings that the IP has.--Epeefleche (talk) 19:50, 26 October 2010 (UTC)
Shared IP, almost certainly not the same person. Theresa Knott | Hasten to trek 20:16, 26 October 2010 (UTC)
Understood. But don't we routinely block shared IPs where the vandalism level is this high, and such a high percentage of their edits? Ignoring those vandal edits for which it did not receive a warning, this shared IP has a fairly impressive history of disrupting the project.--Epeefleche (talk) 20:45, 26 October 2010 (UTC)
I'm reluctant to block shred IP's when there are good faith edits. Even the one that you told me about today isn't really vandalism. it's not appropriate editing but reverting deals with that. Yes we block shared IPs that have too many vandalism edits but only as a last resort. I don't personally think it's needed yet for this IP but another admin may have different views. Theresa Knott | Hasten to trek 20:54, 26 October 2010 (UTC)
Understood. Agree that today's edit was not really vandalism. Never said it was -- it was simply an inappropriate synth/OR edit. Appreciate your comment that another admin may have a different view. Would you suggest that there may be a way to explore that? I think that the fact that my notice to the noticeboard was 10 hours after the vandal edit yesterday was a reasonable amount of time. Perhaps there is another admin whose opinion you trust who you would invite to consider if a block would be appropriate?--Epeefleche (talk) 22:47, 26 October 2010 (UTC)
  • Never mind. I gather that you have bigger fish to fry, which is of course fine. This is not-an earth-shattering issue. Please ignore my above question. Best.--Epeefleche (talk) 22:04, 27 October 2010 (UTC)

That link[edit]

I clicked on it - and found what I expected... Some years ago, a close friend needed a subject for a test presentation when getting a trainer certification. I suggested 'tits'. She thought about it, and did it. We are both bird watchers, after all... I used it myself on a leadership course later. I confess that I do remember hearing a (possibly apocryphal) story that in the early days of radio, a set was switched on as a demo for some bigwigs, and when it had warmed up it announced "great tits like coconuts". Blue tits, of course, like milk bottles... (And time flies like an arrow.) (I clicked on your page because I didn't recognise the name. I know most of the regular names who delete (or not) the stuff I pile up in CSD. (I think I overloaded it yesterday...) I nearly became a teacher, but realised in time that while I can teach many things off the cuff (or with five minutes notice), I can't prepare a three month schedule of what is going to be taught. Nice to see a sense of humour. One or two (maybe three, even) Wikipedians don't seem to appreciate a lighter touch. One doesn't expect it from the desperate socks in AfD... Peridon (talk) 10:36, 26 October 2010 (UTC)

I've been here years but have been away for several months so that is probably why you do not recognise my name. I find most people here do appreciate humour but yet there are a few who think that being serious about Wikipedia (I am) means that you can never be silly. It doesn't really matter what anyone else thinks though, I simply cannot be grave, it's not in my nature. It's strange that not being able to plan a long term scheme of work put you off teaching because you don't really need to do that. It's largely done for you. The UK national curriculum, the syllabus for an examination subject, they layout of the text books etc, have already done most of the long term planning.

Astrid Research deletion[edit]

Astrid Research Inc. and its products GenoMiner and GenoViewer are notable in a rapidly growing community of next generation sequencing (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DNA_sequencing) research throughout the world. The company has a similar size and same offerings than other bioinformatics companies listed in Wikipedia (i.e Biomatters, CLC Bio). "A company, corporation, organization, school, team, religion, group, product, or service is notable if it has been the subject of significant coverage in secondary sources. " The following secondary sources can be found regarding the organization:

Intelli - Diet[edit]

This is an informative article about a notable application and is not advertising. it is no different in tone and content than then 100+ iOS game pages on Wikipedia -98.228.226.40 (talk) 14:27, 26 October 2010 (UTC)

98.228.226.40 (talk) 14:27, 26 October 2010 (UTC)

    • I'm sorry but I agree with the person who added the speedy delete tag. It reads exactly like an ad and there is no evidence of notability. Theresa Knott | Hasten to trek 14:31, 26 October 2010 (UTC)

Hello Theresa - Can you please explain how the intelli-Diet page content and tone differs in content and tone from 'http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OmniFocus' and the many other iOS software that is on Wikipedia? Why is the intelli-Diet page listed as an add/promotion material while the other http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:IPhone_OS_software are not flagged? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.228.226.40 (talk) 16:31, 26 October 2010 (UTC)

98.228.226.40 (talk) 16:31, 26 October 2010 (UTC)

No, because I cannot and will not check every single page in the Wiki. If you think any of those pages fail to establish notability please do feel free to propose deletion. Theresa Knott | Hasten to trek 17:26, 26 October 2010 (UTC)

Yes - I propose that they all be deleted, as they serve the same informative purpose of the intelli-Diet page. I would propose that intelli-Diet be undeleted or that you just delete everything in the IPhone_OS_software category. Thank you.

98.228.226.40 (talk) 19:45, 26 October 2010 (UTC) In that case you need to go and put a proposed delete note on them. Theresa Knott | Hasten to trek 19:47, 26 October 2010 (UTC)

Well that's what I do not understand about your deletion criterion. Why do the 100+ pages offering the same descriptive content exist that passed through review filters? However, this one goes not pass through your deletion criterion? 98.228.226.40 (talk) 20:40, 26 October 2010 (UTC)

(talk page stalker)If you do not understand Wikipedia's deletion criteria (which Theresa knott is simply following), then perhaps that may be why you think the iPhone pages warrant deletion (even though they do not). You may wish to start at Wikipedia: The Five Pillars and work your way forward to gain a better understanding. Also, it may be relevant for you to check out WP:COI.

October 2010[edit]

Hello. This message is being sent to inform you that there currently is a discussion at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents regarding an issue with which you may have been involved. Thank you. 82.152.216.15 (talk) 15:17, 26 October 2010 (UTC)

ARV[edit]

With respect to your comment at ARV, it depends. In this instance, the WP:SPA is repeatedly removing referenced content and has ignored the usual escalating warnings. Only at this late state has the editor begun to discuss his/her concerns, presumably to avoid being blocked. -- Scjessey (talk) 15:28, 26 October 2010 (UTC)

I looked at his edit and saw an explanation in the edit summary, if the edits are being explained then it's not vandalism. I'm not saying that blocking is out of the question but that ANI is not the forum. It's too fast moving with too many straight up vandals to deal with. Any time that a discussion is likely to be needed then the matter should be p[osted at one of the numerous other admin boards. Theresa Knott | Hasten to trek 15:37, 26 October 2010 (UTC)
Well the edit summaries are actually misleading, but since the individual is now discussing things I suppose a block isn't necessary at this time. -- Scjessey (talk) 15:47, 26 October 2010 (UTC)

Sfan00 IMG and over-hasty deletions[edit]

Another one. I'm getting very concerned about this editor's excessive haste to delete on the shakiest of grounds (look at the talk archives, Commons too). I'd take it to RFC/U, but just don't have the time at present. Andy Dingley (talk) 22:21, 26 October 2010 (UTC)

I don't have the inclination for a RFC at the moment.But I agree that it looks absolutely crazy to be tagging such old coins. Theresa Knott | Hasten to trek 22:26, 26 October 2010 (UTC)
I hit him with my best Giano impression...but sadly, I don't think it will do much good. I lost my rollbacker rights over this lil creep...it's just not worth it.:(--R.D.H. (Ghost In The Machine) (talk) 12:18, 27 October 2010 (UTC)
Losing rollback is a good thing. It reduces the quality of your bulk-anti-vandal edit summaries a bit, but you can still shift the stuff effectively enough. Mostly though it's one less thing for petty admins to threaten you with. The last thing anyone needs is one of those "Grovel peasant, and beg for your rights to be restored" arguments with another wikiteenager. Andy Dingley (talk) 00:04, 28 October 2010 (UTC)
I kinda agree. Certainly rolling beck mindless tagging mindlessly is er mindless? If you know what I mean. Do be aware that tagging is not deletion and that an admin needs to make a judgement call. Of course Admins deleting without considering is mindless too. The best thing to do of course is add a FUR. This is what Sfan00 IMG should be doing too. Theresa Knott | Sort that Knee! 00:11, 28 October 2010 (UTC)

Raised at Wikipedia:Requests for comment/Sfan00 IMG[edit]

I've raised this account's deletion tagging at Wikipedia:Requests for comment/Sfan00 IMG. I would welcome contributions there from all parties, particularly ShakespeareFan himself. In particular, if you support my description of the issue, it's necessary for another editor or two to endorse this RFC in the next 48 hours, otherwise it lapses automatically.

This struck me as a little odd too. Andy Dingley (talk) 13:14, 13 January 2011 (UTC)

I wish to write to you regarding the deletion of my name article. This is to state that i dont know the person who created it, but the deletion is ruining my reputation on World Wide Web. You either do one thing, please completely delete the article. It should not show any content that the page was deleted and whatsoever.

I understand, your wikipedia deleted page is on the first page of Google results for your name, which no one would want. What I have found out so far is that we have a "noindex" tag on our deleted articles. This is an instruction telling Google not to list the page in their search results. Unfortunately we have to wait until Google next crawls Wikipedia for them to pick up on the tag. We obviously have no control over this but I believe that it is fairly frequently. Hopefully it should be gone in a couple of weeks. Theresa Knott | Sort that Knee! 16:41, 28 October 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of wsRadio[edit]

wsRadio was tagged as not being notable. However it appears in another article Internet talk radio under Notable Internet talk radio sites with an Alexa rank of 85,524. It was also linked to other wikipedia artcles under What links here Special:WhatLinksHere/WsRadio. It included notable talk shows with 2 different The Washington Times journalists, stamp talk show by the American Philatelic Society, plus others which were not added yet. The article does need more development. Please restore it or submit it to AfD. thanks Petersam (talk) 00:37, 28 October 2010 (UTC)

OK I'll restore it but you need to get assertions of notability into the article before it's deleted rather than after. Theresa Knott | Sort that Knee! 00:41, 28 October 2010 (UTC)

ANI[edit]

Just to let you know I just undid your recent revision to ANI since you removed a section without explanation, probably as the result of an edit conflict.

Speedy deletion though there were significant media links.[edit]

With regard to - http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Circle_of_Seven_Productions&action=edit&redlink=1 perhaps I'm just unclear as to what constitutes "significant"? The article stated that the company is the original creators of book trailers with linked proof to significant media such as The NY Times, Wall St. Journal, etc. You can easily Google "Book Trailers" and see that it is a significant media for the publishing industry. I wrote the wiki because so a number of media and organizations write about book trailers but don't know its origin or that the term is trademarked. The company is contacted by schools from all over the world asking about book trailers and I thought this would be helpful for them as well. I just want to be certain that it was deleted because I needed a more clearly stated significance and not because "book trailers" was unknown to the person who deleted it. If I can find that out, perhaps I can re-write it in a way that will not get it deleted since it was a lot of work to create it in the first place? Thank you.

SheilaEnglish (talk) 05:31, 29 October 2010 (UTC)Sheila English

I rechecked the article in the Wall street Journal and it is largely about the phenomenon not the company. In order to have an article the company itself would need to have significant media coverage. Theresa Knott | Sort that Knee! 12:05, 29 October 2010 (UTC)

I understand, but there were 3 articles listed, all of which point to the fact that the company started the phenomenon being discussed. I only listed those 3 but I do have one more NY Times article and one more WSJ and several others. There are one or two that perhaps would show more relevance directly to the company and I'll look those up and include them. I also included links from the US Trademark office to show proof of trademark. It appears that I need to flesh out more media and tie in the direct relevance between the new media, its affect on the industry and the company, which obviously I did a poor job of doing originally. I'll put more thought behind it and give it another try. Thank you for your time and insight.

Deletion of Endava page[edit]

Hi Teresa, I was about to create a wiki page for the company Endava, but saw the below and was recommended to contact you before creating the page. Can you shed some light on why the page was deleted? I didn't create the original page and don't know what it contained apart from the below.

UK Community Notice - IRC meeting[edit]

Dear Wikipedian,


This is the first of what will hopefully be a regular notice to help bring together the UK community so that you can be involved in some amazing things. To kick things off, there will be a UK community IRC meeting at 1800 UTC, December 7, 2010 to discuss the future growth and developement of Wikimedia UK. Without huge community support and involvement, the chapter cannot be successful and to get the most out of it, get involved.

For information on the community IRC meeting please go here


More to come about:

  • Wikipedia 10th Anniversary Events
  • 1st Annual UK Wiki-conference
  • Trustee interest meeting - an event for those community members with even just a fleeting interest in becoming trustees of Wikimedia UK.


Many Thanks

London Wikimedia Fundraiser[edit]

Good evening! This is a friendly message from Chase me ladies, I'm the Cavalry, inviting you to the London Wikimedia Fundraising party on 19th December 2010, in approximately one week. This party is being held at an artistic London venue with room for approximately 300 people, and is being funded by Ed Saperia, a non-Wikipedian who has a reputation for holding exclusive events all over London. This year, he wants to help Wikipedia, and is subsidising a charity event for us. We're keen to get as many Wikimedians coming as possible, and we already have approximately 200 guests, including members of the press, and some mystery guests! More details can be found at http://ten.wikipedia.org/wiki/London - expect an Eigenharp, a mulled wine hot tub, a free hog roast, a haybale amphitheatre and more. If you're interested in coming - and we'd love to have you - please go to the ten.wikipedia page and follow the link to the Facebook event. Signing up on Facebook will add you to the party guestlist. Entry fee is a heavily subsidised £5 and entry is restricted to over 18s. It promises to be a 10th birthday party to remember! If you have any questions, please email me at chasemewiki at gmail.com.

Hope we'll see you there, (and apologies for the talk page spam) - Chase me ladies, I'm the Cavalry (talk) 00:05, 13 December 2010 (UTC)

Images of old coins[edit]

Hello, I just chanced across your old edit from October here [1]. I'm curious, are you certain about your position here? It's been my understanding that the PD-old rules apply only to strictly 2-dimensional works. Historical coins aren't that; taking photographs of them involves more than just slavish reproduction. As far as I know, our practice so far has been that we insist on free licensing of the photographic work. Do you know of an established consensus documented somewhere that we should apply PD-old to these? Fut.Perf. 08:16, 14 January 2011 (UTC)

Actually I'm not going to do that as the recent edit by Sfan indicates there has been some discussion about it that I was not a party to. Presumably that discussion resolved the issue.

Reblock Ottawa Township School IP address[edit]

Hello, I noticed that in 2009 you put a block on the Ottawa township IP address 66.158.79.11 for repeated vandalism. I noticed today a user of that IP address had vandalized today's feature article. I undid the vandalism, but thought you might want to block them again. The diff in question is here: http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=The_Temple_at_Thatch&diff=410594162&oldid=410593799

Also, I noticed on the top of the page for this IP address that the Ottawa Tomship School should be contacted and informed of the network abuse.

78.155.239.29 and 24.218.241.94 - vandalism[edit]

Here's a good example of what I'm talking about with this 78.155.239.29, the diff page for an edit to Gerald Potterton that I removed.

Gerald Potterton never worked at Disney. This can easily be verified by his IMDB page.

I first noticed this person because of very, very similar false information being added to IMDB.

Another person to watch out for is 24.218.241.94. For example, look at this diff - this guy added a bunch of names of Disney crew members who absolutely did not work on "Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends". This diff also adds false information claiming that this person worked on the same show, also mentioning a Disney animator who never worked on "Foster's" either. And he adds mention of the same "Destination: Imagination" title to the biography of Eric Larson in this diff - Eric Larson died in 1988, two decades before, so he couldn't have worked on it no matter what.

This is just really frustrating for me, but I don't have the time to go back and remove all the false info added by these people.--TServo2050 (talk) 19:48, 6 March 2011 (UTC)

User report on AIAV[edit]

Hi Theresa, dunno if you've read my respons on the AIAV page, but I really could use your help, so here's my respons as written on the aforementioned page.

Yes, and they referred me to RFC. That was, however, before aforementioned user made several new 'contributions'. Also, I'm getting nowhere if being referred to another wiki-department all the time. If someone can point me towards the right wiki-board to adress this, then I would be content with whatever the outcome is. Although your advice is well-meant, I can't help but feeling sort of helpless and lost right now. I really hope you can understand my frustration with this.

I hope you can help me with this. Best regards, Robster1983 (talk) 22:50, 7 March 2011 (UTC)

As a general rule, you shouldn't try to involve admins for this kind of thing until you have exhausted other avenues first. It's clearly not vandalism which is why I advised that AIV is not the right place. It looks to me like a rather over enthusiatic fan editing his favourite star. There is every chance that he will respond to talking to so your best approach at the moment is to try to engage him in dialogue and to encourage other editors to do the same. If that doesn't work an RFC or perhaps another post on AN/I. You could also approach myself or another admin directly. Although personally I can't promise to be available, I'm very busy IRL at the moment. Theresa Knott | Sort that Knee! 08:33, 8 March 2011 (UTC)

First of all: thanks so much for replying, it is very much appreciated! :) Second: I honestly did not know which way to turn to, as it is réally hard to figure out where one should make his/her case. There are several boards to turn to, but to be honest, before yesterday I didn't even know two of the three boards that I have visited. :s I also did not know that it is a general rule not to get admins involved in certain things (are admins of wiki, like, the same as civil servants are IRL? ;)).
Anyhow, I'll try to get this user involved in the discussion (until now he/she hasn't responded to anything, but he stopped editing also; a status-quo I could live with ;)), and I have contact with another wikipedian who is also doing what he can, so we're on it for now. :) Also, I'm thinking about bundling all his edits, and send it to Gadaffi (for he could use a great spindoctor right now ;)).
I do apologise if I caused any inconvenience whatsoever! Also, again, a big thank you for helping me out! And good luck with your RL-stuff (I dunno if you need it, but I figured that good-luck wishes are always appropriate :)). Best regards, Robster1983 (talk) 10:20, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
You have absolutely no need to apologise for asking for help. I understand that it's confusing, there are a lot of different boards to learn. Anyway best of luck. Theresa Knott | Sort that Knee! 16:40, 8 March 2011 (UTC)

edit "Cold Fusion" Move All References to Pathological Science to the Historical Footnotes Section --Gregory Goble (talk) 23:44, 26 December 2011 (UTC)


To improve the article: 1) Wiki needs to view it as science. 2) Wiki needs to recognize which scientific journals are utilized and sourced by scientists in this field of physics.

I predict a tremendous increase in the readability of the article.

Query to the Scientific Community:

To the Directors of Physics Departments,

LENR - Low Energy Nuclear Reaction and Widom Larson Theory, aka Condensed Matter Nuclear or Lattice Enabled Nuclear; historically misnamed "Cold Fusion"

1) Is this science or pathological science?

2) Do you offer a class in this discipline? If so, please provide information.

3) Are you developing a curriculum of this science? If so, when will you offer it?

4) What peer review journals do you source in this field?

Theresa,

P>S>

1) Any suggestions or criticisms before I move forward with this?

2) Is this direction of query able to yield opinions the Wikipedia forum on Cold Fusion may value?

Thank you for your time,

Gregory Goble gbgoble@gmail.com (415) 724-6702

My list of physics departments is of the U.S. (over 300 so far). Theresa, if you want to correspond to physics departments in Europe with this query I would be pleased. >>> — Preceding unsigned comment added by Gregory Goble (talkcontribs) 23:35, 26 December 2011 (UTC) --Gregory Goble (talk) 23:44, 26 December 2011 (UTC)

Seeking guidance - problems on BP article[edit]

Hi Theresa,

I wonder if as an administrator you would be willing to offer a bit of guidance? I am having a difficult time with making edits to the BP article. I've taken the issue first to the POV noticeboard, where I've received only one response - it was in agreement with my views. Now I am involved in a lengthy discussion at the Dispute Resolution noticeboard.

Essentially, I saw bias on the BP page, particularly in the intro. To make changes to the intro is met with extreme confrontations and edit wars by the one editor on the page who has positioned himself as the owner and gatekeeper of the article. His reasoning in the edits are not congruent with Wikipedia guidelines, and when I point out that they don't hold water (or more recently, a blatant lie), he changes his reason for the edit and gets more confrontational. He has claimed that the intro should not be challenged because it's been this way for a long time, and was agreed upon by experienced editors.

Why I have come to seek guidance: Yes, I can continue to battle it out over the intro, and maybe make more headway. But as a volunteer, this is taking up time which should be spent at work. I have time to update pages, and since I follow to the best of my ability the Wikipedia guidelines, my edits should not are usually are not challenged - meaning I can accomplish a lot in the time I have.

But to make one minute change to the BP intro has taken me almost a week. And we're nowhere near finished removing bias from the intro.

After a bit of research, I found a few news stories that should be added to the page - but since they happen to put BP in a negative light, I fear I will be challenged again like this. I do not have the time nor the stomach to go through this just to update the page.

Which means the page is left to, what looks to me, a POV pusher who happens to spin things wildly in favor of BP.

I thought you might know what tools are available to editors who notice this type of activity on Wikipedia pages, and specifically on the pages of large companies or special interests? At one point I ran across a group of editors that specifically monitored large oil company's Wikipedia pages for greenwashing and spin. I cannot remember what they were called now. But something like that is needed, in my opinion. In a perfect world, his behavior so far should really have him banned or heavily monitored at the page, in my view. Adding simple encyclopedic statements of fact to the article is like pulling teeth. (Unless they show BP in a good light, but do an internet search for recent news - there isn't any good news.) I don't want to have to worry if BP likes my editing - the only basis for whether my edits are challenged should be whether they follow Wikipedia rules, no?

If we want this to be an encyclopedia instead of an ad space, POV pushing editors cannot be claiming ownership of pages. Obvious in theory, but how is this implemented in reality? Is there an obvious next step you would recommend? Would you like to comment as an Administrator, either to me or on the Dispute Resolution page? Any help or ideas are most welcome. And I thoroughly understand if you want nothing of it and to go to the pool instead! Thank you for your time. petrarchan47Tc 23:17, 11 June 2012 (UTC)

Your Old Graphics Tutorials[edit]

Hi Theresa. Your old tutorial, Wikipedia:How to draw a diagram with Microsoft Word, is up for deletion. I got the notification as I'm the first Wikipedian in the edit history (I probably moved it from the article namespace after when transitioned to MediaWiki). Your other tutorials for using OpenOffice, apparently were deleted a few years ago. I think this tutorial is an important piece of Wikipedia history, as I argue on the deletion discussion page. I just wanted to let you know in case you wanted to add your two cents to the discussion. -- Stephen Gilbert (talk) 21:43, 1 September 2013 (UTC)

female knowledge and wiki[edit]

hi, i am not terrific at this wiki stuff yet. but i did attempt a while ago to enter what i thought was an important entry "haptic medicine"... it started out all full of references and lots of science, and it is now whittled and whittled. its about using love to heal. its not really alternative medicine. its maternal love. but its also connected to emerging awareness of kindness on our biology, and the american association of holistic nurses, etc. I am not sure what to do to improve its plight. I fear it will be gone one day. It just keeps getting attacked, although it is a wonderful thing.

I thought I'll look up "maternal care" perhaps that will be a good entry to link to from the haptic medicine site, because there is a scientist I referenced in the original entries and tried to keep there... from McGill U. Michael Meaney. He's in wiki, but links to him and his work keep getting edited out. He studies maternal care and its effect on our biology... I discovered there is no entry for "maternal care" in wiki but there is an entry for paternal care (fathers) and parental care... the only thing that comes up with maternal care are possible references to maternity care.

I would try to create it, but for the life of me, I can't figure out where to how to anymore. So I simply edited the paternal care site to reference maternal care. I have a phd in cs. And I can't see how to add an entry any more. Good gravy.

I appreciate your presence on the web. I work with my friends in Spain, to create emotion filters for the web. We can filter the web for positivity, its kind of cool. ok, thank you for your hard work here. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Masonix (talkcontribs) 08:33, 29 May 2015 (UTC)

Hmm I presume you chose me from the Jenny Kleeman article in the New Statesman as I've not edited Wikipedia in years now. I really don't know anything about haptic medicine - is it evidence based? If so you can add the references in to the article. If not then it very much fits the definition of alternative medicine. As for Maternal care you can create the article by clicking on the red link [Maternal care] and starting to type. Now you need to write a good paragraph and definitely add some sources to reference anything you write or it'll probably get deleted. As I am no longer an admin on Wikipedia( because I'm no longer an editor) I won't be able to undelete it so you need to make sure it meets a minimum standard. Hope this helps and sorry if I'm a bit useless - as I've already said I rarely edit anymore. Theresa Knott | Sort that Knee! 13:22, 29 May 2015 (UTC)

Foucault pendulum at north pole.png[edit]

Dear Theresa, would you mind changing your figure such that the suspension point of the pendulum is placed exactly over the north pole, rather than the base point of the gallow? This would be helpful for the correct understanding of the whole thing. - Thanks in advance Jörn (german WP) --Bleckneuhaus (talk) 20:57, 24 July 2015 (UTC)
