Rhodes Amplification

Hello George,

I realized after starting my Rhodes Amplification page I was engaged in a Wikipedia conflict of interest. I moved my edits to my user space which I was under the impression was used as a temporary location for page creation. I feel I am maintaining a neutral tone and not using Wikipedia as a promotional tool for my company -- I am attempting to create a page similar to other amplifier companies which simply states information regarding the products offered and who uses them in addition to company history and future.

If you feel I am still in violation please advise how I can do this properly.

lymphoma.org links

Hello, We are from the Lymphoma Research Foundation. Is there any reason why you are removing links from wikipedia that link to our website lymphoma.org? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.10.138.114 (talk) 15:52, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

Wikipedia is not a promotional tool for your organisation nor is it a directory of mere links. You have a potential conflict of interest too. TeapotgeorgeTalk 20:58, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

SPA and COI

Hi George

I am new to wiki.- am slow and methodical in my editing, hence my many attempts at my first project (you cited 120 edits). I wish my editing skills were better, but they are not, and I am still learning. I understood that I was welcome to edit the article to address the concerns for which it was nominated for deletion - which I tried to. It took me a long time as you can see, but I did not know that counted against me or that it was to be seen as 'bad behaviour'.

Proposed Ceramic Art portal

I have just joined WikiProject Arts and I'm thinking about creating a Ceramic Art portal. There are a lot of ceramic articles and this might be a way of bringing editors together and highlighting work that needs to be done (e.g. adding material on the USA to Studio pottery). However, I don't know how to create a portal and wondered if you, as an editor with similar interests to me, had any thoughts about it. Marshall46 (talk) 16:33, 18 June 2008 (UTC)

The instructions are here...I may have a go later this evening unless you beat me to it? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Portal/Instructions Teapotgeorge (talk) 17:44, 18 June 2008 (UTC)

Leach Pottery

You were right to edit the addition made to this page by Mark Anselm: it is unscourced, POV and marketing copy. I am going to edit his revert and put a note on the discussion page. Marshall46 18:38, 14 November 2007 (UTC)

Pottery Makers category

Plainly, the elimination of named Potters from the External Links was wrong.

That writer has a different perspective as to which potters are not notable.

I suggest that the individual potteries be put into a different category, thereby not 'cluttering' the internal links (See alsos), while maintaining these. You may not realize, for example, the import of Pewabic Pottery -- but it is of significance to the Arrts and Crafts movement, and at least to much of the Midwestern U.S. Y

our deletion was at the very least parochial and ill-advised. Your getting rid of the new category and the listing orphaned a lot of serious articles on the subject. I was trying to work within the framework of letting the "External Links" be shortened and simplified.

Thanks for the help with the ISBN and the general tidying. I know that Seth Cardew describes him as such but not at all sure that the term "ceramic stylist" is appropriate for Michael Cardew? sounds like a hairdresser! Teapotgeorge 15:02, 27 December 2006 (UTC)

Change as you see fit. I only added it because the opening sentence of an article needs to set the general context. Femto 16:19, 27 December 2006 (UTC)

This is wonderful stuff. I haven't checked, but can you make sure you add a line to each place as well, stating that they have a KGVF and wikilinking the list you are workin on? There is an example in pretty much any of the other lists, of in the Wikiproject.  :) Fiddle Faddle 22:54, 8 January 2007 (UTC)

Hi, no big deal but it is considered a trifle rude to remove another editors contribution on a talkpage. Even if the comment is obsolete, as mine admittedly was, it should have been kept.

re Stonehenge

Hi, about your query, as the article on that subject says, the voting, purpose and significance of the competition is disputed. I'd agree that in itself isn't a fatal objection, but it doesn't really seem to belong in the article, which is about the monument, and the recent history is about what affects it directly, i.e. the road scheme, UNESCO status, preservation work, etc. The fact it has appeared on a poll of this sort in some capacity is rather superfluous to an already long and detailed article. It was for these reasons that the article was split up. Stonehenge in popular culture would be a more appropriate place for this sort of comment, but I'm hesitant to, again owing to the fact there seems to be some sort of dispute over the competition. Once that was settled, I'd be more happy to see it in some way on one of the spin off articles. I don't seem to be alone in this, someone else seems to have added a reference to this earlier, and was reverted. Hope that explains my thinking. Benea 17:00, 8 July 2007 (UTC)

Pottery

Hi. Pottery is a term used to describe clay based ceramics. It is not connected with the form of the object. Ceramics is a very large group of materials, many of which did not conatin any clay - for example silicon carbide and boron nitride. If pottery is just specific to vessels consider the case of a ball of clay:

  • A] Fire it as a ball. It is not a container so your defintion does not make it pottery.
  • B] Force your finger into it to make a hole, and then fire it. According to your defintion it does becomes pottery.

This doesn't make sense! It can not be sensible to suggest that A has more connection with a missle nose cone (high tech cermaics which had no clay) than with B. Also pottery as a clay based ceramic is the recognised terminology with the industry (for UK think "The Potteries" in Stoke-on-Trent) Thank you. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.153.70.31 (talk) 17:07, 29 September 2007 (UTC)

Thank you for your comments, I am a potter so am fully aware of the various terms. Consensus in the past has been that Ceramic is the preferred term for the Venus figurine.Teapotgeorge 17:17, 29 September 2007 (UTC)

Eh? No, you reverted twice[5][], from "could not published[sic]" to "did not publish". Fair enough on the surface, except the source is specifically saying "cannot" not just "did not". I revert to the misspelled version ( admittedly because I didn't notice it was misspelled ) then corrected the error.

Pewabic Pottery

Dear Teapot:

That you would eliminate Pewabic Pottery from the list of studio potters is bizarre. Putting aside whether you are or I am "parochial' (I apologize for saying that; you might be right that I am), but [[Arts and Crafts] (which was international, not just North American) and Pewabic Pottery were and are important. I know you are from Columbia, but you need to not put on your censorship mode.

You did the same stuff in Pottery. I have the same problem here.

I would like to collegially work this out. I don't mean to have a war over this, and I would like you to voluntarily reconsider.

7&6=thirteen 13:47, 16 November 2007 (UTC) Stan

It is a list of individual "Studio Potters" I don't see how Pewabic Pottery qualifies? Teapotgeorge 14:13, 16 November 2007 (UTC)

Hello George:

I'm over here to chat about your removal of the Notable Pottery makers (should really be ( opinion) Notable pottery makers) from the Pottery article. This seems to me to be a pretty useful section. However I am reluctant to just plop it back if you are just going to axe it again and then I can . . . ..... well you know how it goes. So, what is your objection again? Carptrash (talk) 05:35, 17 November 2007 (UTC)

I have no objection to a "notable" potters list but not an "obscure" potters list, designed to get people's personal favourites in. Plop it back if you wish. Teapotgeorge (talk) 05:58, 17 November 2007 (UTC)

Examples: New Eric Liddell sporting biography link deleted - featured on BBC sport, Daily telegraph, independent etc - not relevant? Sebastian Coe wrote the foreward - not relevant on his page? On the Lady Jane Gray page - not relevant to add that a new biography was written? On the Martyn Lloyd Jones page - not relevant to add a new title on his contribution to twentieth century church life(supported and contributed to by multiple Martyn Lloyd Jones organisations) - Not relevant John Bunyan - A new biography - not relevant? Death and Afterlife - 'Where do we go from here?' - Already written about in almost every major Christian journal - not relevant? Atheism and Richard Dawkins - The book 'Does God believe in Atheists' was award winning Christian book of the year in 2001 and cites RD. Not relevant to the debate?

Yes I am linked to a Christian publisher but I am only adding relevant links. Almost every page has relevant links to titles and ISBN numbers, I am doing nothing special here.

teapot george - I'm learning whilst trying to make constructive additions regards portrait heads made by a suitably eminent sculptor. I'd be grateful for advice re what you would feel is necessary to avoid the list spam I seen to have started....

Nancy also warned/advised me.. have questioned her too.

If Michael Cardew sat for a sculptor then surely it is contributive in cultural terms, although in this case the terracotta is not in a national collection (yet). Others are in national and international collections. If editorial is added based on the sitting, its time and place (and perhaps the iamge uploaded,) will this suffice? thanksCazimir (talk) 16:09, 16 July 2008 (UTC)

I would suggest the fact that a sculptor modelled a portrait head, which is in the artists own collection, isn't really a notable event in Michael Cardew's life? It would be fine to mention it in the artists article though. Teapotgeorge (talk) 18:24, 16 July 2008 (UTC)

Karla Poewe

Dear George:

You and the user identified as "Hrafn" correctly pointed out that I had created a page for my wife "Karla Poewe" that involved a conflict of interest, lacked appropriate citations, and was not "neutral." Subsequently, I pleaded guilty to all three charges on the grounds that I had not read Wikipeadia rules. Nevertheless, I had acted "in the spirit of Wikipeadia" because I was trying to be provide information about a scholar who is notable enough to be included in the "Canadian Who's Who" and has published a number of significant books and articles that are the subject of lively academic debates.

After my posts and apologies on this issue at least three other people edited the page to remove and rework the offending passages. If you now check the history you will see that I have nothing to do with the article and that other people have taken it over. You will also see that with the exception of Karla's list of publications all the references are to independent, peer reviewed, academic sources.

May I suggest that in the spirit of collaboration you change the reference to her list of publications by adding the following which is from a verifiable website, that of the Center for Military and Strategic Studies at the University of Calgary, and not her own webpage.

Michael Cardew

You have re-added Michael Cardew as an alumni of The Central.. I reverted because there was no evidence for this. Can you point me to a reference and I will add the detail to his own article too. Thank you. TeapotgeorgeTalk 12:25, 26 September 2008 (UTC)

The re-ad was not intentional, - I was rearranging the overall article and his name must have been included when I was referencing the history log for lost information I wanted to re-ad, my apologies. Regarding Cardew, my only source is from the official website of Central Saint Martins that lists him (or someone with a similar name and craft) on their alumni list (http://www.csm.arts.ac.uk/csm_alumni_who_16487.htm). I'm assuming the source to be true considering it's the official website of the college and I'd see no reason for them to falsely claim otherwise for one individual. Furthermore, referencing over the prospectuses, he features on the alumni list at the back as well. Obviously a secondary source would be ideal, - although I suspect it'll be difficult to find that online since he may have only studied (or possibly taught) at the college briefly... Either way, I'll leave it up to you. I've briefly scanned through Google with his name and the college attached and there's a few indications (although not concrete) of his connection with the college but not solid enough.

why revert edit to Adrienne Kennedy?

Hi -- I'm wondering why you reverted this "external link" addition to Adrienne Kennedy:

I don't have a strongly developed sense of what is or is not appropriate for external links, but I thought this was a pretty richly informative interview, with some autobiographical detail as well as relevance to the unfolding of Kennedy's career. If there's something wrong with it, would you let me know? (It was not my edit, but it seemed okay to me, and I'm trying to develop a clearer sense of what is and is not appropriate content for external links.)

Thanks! Kenllama/(talk) 14:12, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for the explanation. One sensible approach here might be for me to plunder the interview for useful data, write it into the article, and add the interview as a reference rather than as an external link. The user in question may be spamming, but in this case it might be kind of useful spam. Thank you =) Kenllama/(talk) 18:39, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

Facts in Creation Science

When reverting my change from "facts" to "axioms" you wrote "they may be changing but they are still facts!"

But most people seeing the word "fact" would take the dictionary definition "thing certainly known to have occurred or be true" (which definitely couldn't change) rather than the definition "thing assumed as basis for inference" which is roughly what axiom means (both occur in the Concise Oxford Dictionary under "fact").

Note that further down the article Creation Science says that a scientific theory must be "correctable and dynamic (changing to fit with newly discovered data)". This is not what a fact is in non-technical terms. An ordinary person should not have to read the article Evolution_as_theory_and_fact in order to understand the reasoning behind the apparentl inflammatory first sentence of the article Creation Science.

Why make an encyclopaedia article unnecessarily controversial when it could be merely a statement of facts? ;-) --PeterR (talk) 15:45, 27 January 2009 (UTC)

Editing of Radio Tales Pages

Please discontinue the deletion of the audioVille links and information from the Radio Tales pages. The links were for the express purpose of leading article readers to a source of streaming audio for the Radio Tales series. AudioVille is the one and only source for such streaming audio, which is not available for download anywhere else. This content is pertinent, and significantly enhances the reader's appreciation for and understanding of the content of the article.

Scriptural reasoning again

Hi Teapotgeorge,

Things have calmed down over at Scriptural reasoning, since your last visit. I think we now have a version that is (a) properly referenced, with multiple third-party reliable citations, and (b) where involved parties on the talk page have agreed that it is NPOV, and that COI issues have therefore been appropriately resolved - and that includes people who represent different sides in the recent dispute. I wonder whether, as a neutral observer, you might be willing to have a quick glance at the current version of the page, and at the most recent discussion at the bottom of the talk page, and (if you are happy with what you see, obviously) remove the NPOV, COI and reference flags on the article?

Mr and Mrs Schollar

Information.svg Hi, I noticed that you tagged this page for speedy deletion under criterion A7. While your tagging was not incorrect, I believe you should have used criterion G10 instead, as this is clearly a page created only to attack or disparage its subject. This also gives the creator a more stern warning than a simple notice saying their subject may not be notable. It is also likely to get faster administrator attention.

Keep in mind that attack pages should preferably also be blanked. Some tools, like Twinkle, does this automatically. decltype (talk) 11:11, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

Declined speedy deletion of Omniology

Hi. I declined your request for deleting of Omniology under WP:CSD#G1 as it did not meet the requirements: "Pages consisting purely of incoherent text or gibberish with no meaningful content or history. This does not include poor writing, partisan screeds, obscene remarks, vandalism, fictional material, material not in English, poorly translated material, implausible theories, or hoaxes; some of these, however, may be deleted as vandalism in blatant cases." (My highlighting). The text isn't gibberish (though I think the theory is), and so it does not meet that requirement.

"Vandalism"

Hey Teapotgeorge. I edit conflicted with you in reverting the copyvio addition to Tanya Chalkin. and thus noticed your edit summary and the rollback. That was not "vandalism". It was a copyvio, and it is probably a vanity edit given the user's name (and it certainly wasn't NPOV!) but we don't call edits like that "vandalism", and we don't use rollback for them. Continuing to post copyvios after being warned about them, of course, is vandalism, but that wasn't the case here). Cheers.--Fuhghettaboutit (talk) 11:02, 26 June 2009 (UTC)

Ah. Okay. Rollback is only for vandalism, so when you use rollback, Twinkle, and other programs use a default vandalism edit summary, assuming that the edit is vandalism because that's what rollback is for. If an edit isn't vandalism per se, you shouldn't use rollback. Cheers.--Fuhghettaboutit (talk) 11:13, 26 June 2009 (UTC)

Hm, that was an automated notification from the script I'm using, I don't like it very much. Anyway ... when a page has just a link, A3 is better than G11. Thanks for your tagging work :) - Dank (push to talk) 11:50, 30 June 2009 (UTC)

Speedy Deletion HISHE

George, you deleted or nominated an article of mine for "Promoting". I, however, think you are mistaken for that was far from my intent. Can you tell me what was the "promoting" quoting from my article? (My article was How It Should Have Ended) HISHEfan (talk) 19:57, 2 July 2009 (UTC)

As I said on your talk page...your article "How It Should Have Ended" was deleted by user User:NawlinWiki using the criteria A7: No indication that the article may meet guidelines for inclusion and G11: Unambiguous advertising or promotion. TeapotgeorgeTalk 16:40, 3 July 2009 (UTC)

Rightttt, sorry about the mix up, I thought it was you who did it. Wikipedia can be very confusing! :-) I'll talk to NawlinWiki. Like I said, Sorry about the mix up —Preceding unsigned comment added by HISHEfan (talkcontribs) 00:01, 6 July 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for the link; that's not a problem, as the NIV permits small-scale copying, and this is small enough. Nyttend (talk) 12:28, 4 July 2009 (UTC)

BeHealthy1

teapotgeorge, I have been having some real trouble submitting something of real value. Should it be best that I request it be added instead. (Behealthy1 (talk) 18:39, 6 July 2009 (UTC)BeHealthy1)

As far as I recall you have copied and pasted content in violation of copyright...which will always get speedily deleted, as will over promotional stuff (spam) and if you also have a conflict of interest then it won't make it any easier you could try submitting a request for an article here... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Requested_articles Good luck TeapotgeorgeTalk 18:55, 6 July 2009 (UTC)

So what I originally created today is gone forever despite my having adjusted and corrected most if not all conflicts of interest per the request that you initially solicited to me?(Behealthy1 (talk) 18:28, 7 July 2009 (UTC))

I apologize for my previous message. I couldn't find the page there for a minute. Okay, I understand to a certain degree with all guidelines required by wikipedia. However, when I read through H-E-B's page for example, I find far more conflicts of interest than when I re-read through my creation. If I continue to keep it 'under construction' will it remain unlisted from search queries and continue to keep it exempt from deletion, for the time being.

Vacation Resorts International

Your tag on Vacation Resorts International should have been a G-10 (attack page), since beyond the first sentence which seems promotional, the rest is basically an attack piece against the company. --Patar knight - chat/contributions 17:38, 13 July 2009 (UTC)

Once more thank you for your time and for your assistance. Sincerely. JMK 14:57, 15 July 2009 (UTC)

Just a friendly note on Florestan Trio. I declined the speedy deletion request because winning an award is a good faith claim of importance. If the trio isn't notable (and from the talk page, it looks like they meet WP:MUSIC), try AfD. Cheers!--Fabrictramp | talk to me 21:43, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

Corrin Campbell page...

Hi,

I was wondering why you have marked this page stated in the Subject as having a COI. Any help/suggestions you can offer so that it can be removed would be helpful.

Chocobofarmer86 (talk) 19:25, 26 August 2009 (UTC)

errr... possibly because user CorrinCampbell has been editing? http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=User:CorrinCampbell&action=edit&redlink=1 TeapotgeorgeTalk 23:41, 26 August 2009 (UTC)


I had noticed that upon further investigation into the Edit History, but to say that it was a "major contributor" to the article seems to be an exaggeration. It seems like the birthplace was changed and that was it, i am unsure as to why that was done but i don't believe that that minor alteration warrants a COI warning like that. I am new to wikipedia and that was the 1st article i made so if you can offer up any suggestions how to rectify that problem i would be all ears. Thanks. Chocobofarmer86 (talk) 02:21, 27 August 2009 (UTC)

Hey, I suppose an understanding was reached about the COI. Thank you for you watching over my page and helping me in anyway you can. Chocobofarmer86 (talk) 16:18, 28 August 2009 (UTC)

Wildworks?

Yo, I have undone without prejudice your wrongful tagging of the Gearslutz article I have been working on for quite sometime now. If you insist in re-tagging it then I will have to ask that you do the same for your article "Wildworks". Gearslutz deserves its own article on the main space and in case you are not aware of, it is a treasure chest in knowledge which only audio engineers can appreciate. Thanks for your cooperation.

Speedy deletion declined: Eric Rhenman

Hello Teapotgeorge, and thanks for your work patrolling new changes. I am just informing you that I declined the speedy deletion of Eric Rhenman - a page you tagged - because: The article makes a credible assertion of importance or significance, sufficient to pass A7.

Weston Williamson

I've removed your PROD because I had independently redirected the other identical article to this one; and I've changed the "unreferenced" tag to "primarysources", which seems to me a more useful one in these circumstances, because when they see "unref" they add their own website, Myspace etc and think that's enough. I didn't put back my "notability" tag because given all the awards they probably are notable - we'll see what refs Rose can come up with. Regards, JohnCD (talk) 10:13, 2 September 2009 (UTC)

That's fine I wasn't sure how to do a redirect. Cheers TeapotgeorgeTalk 11:25, 2 September 2009 (UTC)

Svend Bayer

I've given a source for his Danish parentage. Swedish is wrong: Svend Bayer referred to his Danish ancestry in a talk at "Art in Clay" at Hatfield this year. I know this counts for nothing on Wikipedia, and I'll search for a second published source to give more weight to this fact. Marshall46 (talk) 15:28, 4 September 2009 (UTC)

You are quite correct I just double checked in my copy of Studio Pottery by Oliver Watson. Cheers TeapotgeorgeTalk 15:29, 4 September 2009 (UTC)

Lorna Bailey

I have removed your PROD tag from this article. Firstly, I found coverage which demonstrates notability, as indicated on the article's talk page. Secondly, since the article has been previously proposed for deletion and was previously kept at AFD (see Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Lorna Bailey), the proposed deletion tag that you placed on the article was not valid anyway.--Michig (talk) 19:21, 4 September 2009 (UTC)

Opps so Sorry!

Hi TpG, I am so sorry about the confusion with me adding my name to the Canadian painters section. I am pretty new here and have been having some difficulty navigating and finding appropriate guidelines etc. It was moat assuredely NOT my intention to spam any page, as I am a legitimate professional Canadian artist living in Sweden at the present time. Another member realised my problem after editing me and has graciously helped me to understand much better. I think I get it now. I do want you to know, that I tried very hard to see if it was ok to add my name to the list of artists, and after some serious searching, did not find any guidelines to the contrary (although I am sure there must be some)so, as the option was available on the toolbar and I saw another artist had a picture of his work there, I assumed it was ok. I saw several well known artists there, but also ones I have never heard of and in sort of the same time frame as well. I am totally unsure where the appropriate list is where I fit in at the moment, but I can tell you, I will NOT enter my name even on my own drivers licence before ok'ing it with an editor, or a Guideline Guru. Sorry I gave you a headache.--Jackie ohlsen (talk) 15:37, 5 September 2009 (UTC)
