Disambiguation link notification for August 8[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited L.E.J, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Seventeen magazine and Mashup (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). 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.

Hello T. I just saw your edit here and I wanted to let you know that you don't need to use the ping on the talk page of the person that you are leaving a message for. The get notified automatically through the "You have a new message" orange bar. Pinging is used for letting an editor know when you mention them on any talk page that isn't theirs. Now there is nothing wrong with using the ping but you can avoid dealing with the template if you want to. Cheers. MarnetteD|Talk 00:35, 17 August 2015 (UTC)

Janis Maria Wilson[edit]

Hello, you are editing about Janis Wilson. Some of the articles you have added as the refrences are not correct. Or you did not undertsand correct. She never posed nude for the Playboy Magazine. And she didnt have to claim that she did not use the drugs. She tried to defent that not all models and acress and famous people use drugs in that business. Everyone know that she was not using any drugs, but a lot of people in her "business-models ets" are using drugs, so the journalist asked her what she thing about that some is using it. The articel is about that she is the proof that not all models are the same.— Preceding unsigned comment added by PhilipsTee (talkcontribs) 16:46, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

Looks like you, too, PhilipsTee, are editing Janis Wilson, like when you removed a source and removed the shopkeepers account of the Alanya dust-up and removed the statement about Wilson claiming not to have used drugs. Further, it looks like you are new to Wikipedia and have only edited the Janis Wilson article. This happens when people are trying to push agendas.--Tomwsulcer (talk) 20:08, 29 August 2015 (UTC)
Hello, that's correct. You have done a good job!--comment added by PhilipsTee (talk

Photo[edit]

Meryemana (4)

I'm trying to learn, and I want to write or add a photo to Virgin Mary this article . I have been there, and I have seen the "wishing wall". I have also seen photos from the wishing wall, and I think I saw it commons wiki. But I dont know how to insert the photo. Maybe you can help with that also. You are very quick and very profesionall editor. Thank you— Preceding unsigned comment added by PhilipsTee (talkcontribs) 20:26, 29 August 2015 (UTC) this is the photo i found, and i think it should be on wikipedia. what do you think?--PhilipsTee Hello, I'm not sure where to answer you... That's correct, I'm new. You have done a good job! I'm trying to learn, and I want to write or add a photo to Virgin Mary https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/House_of_the_Virgin_Mary . I have been there, and I have seen the "wishing wall". I have also seen photos from the wishing wall, and I think I saw it commons wiki. But I dont know how to insert the photo. Maybe you can help with that also. You are very quick and very profesionall editor. Thank you — Preceding unsigned comment added by PhilipsTee (talk • contribs) 20:26, 29 August 2015 (UTC)[1]. Thank you — Preceding unsigned comment added by PhilipsTee (talkcontribs) 20:38, 29 August 2015 (UTC) Hello again, the photo is now in the article (Virgin Mary), but can you please help me moving it up ONE STEP? — Preceding unsigned comment added by PhilipsTee (talkcontribs) 20:54, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

Simply move the photo higher in the article. Good luck.--Tomwsulcer (talk) 11:23, 30 August 2015 (UTC)

Janis Maria Wilson[edit]

Hello, I read the article #1, and thats why I wrote the things I wrote. In the first article you set as refrences the girl says: "Jeg gikk tegning, form og farge på videregående" That means "I studied art school in upper secundary high school". To achieve college admission certification, you have to have math and english in Norway. And later the article learned us: "For et drøyt år siden forlot hun dølabyen for å ta fatt på studier i markedsføring og økonomi ved BI i Oslo." Means: One year ago, she moved to Oslo to study at BI Business School. And since she was 20 then, thats why I wrote that she moved to Oslo in 2005.

And I added Vi Menn on magazines, because: "I april var 21-åringen på forsiden av Vi Menn" Means: In april the 21 year old girl was on the cover of Vi Menn.

I don't think that I did something wrong, or wrote something wrong. I'm sorry if I did something that was not correct, I just edited the article after reading the first refrence.— Preceding unsigned comment added by Nilserik bærum (talkcontribs) 00:18, 8 September 2015 (UTC)
The article Janis Maria Wilson has been changed numerous times, possibly by sockpuppets, probably by promoters or others with a conflict of interest, that it makes sense to leave the article as it is for a while, after I revamped it to save it from deletion, and on a subject where a whole slew of supposedly new contributors keep springing up out of the woodwork. About your points above: is it important that JMW studied art in secondary school? Or at what age she went to business school? Adding irrelevant immaterial content to lengthen the article is a good way to again bring it up for deletion review. My advice: please leave the article alone for the time being, thank you.--Tomwsulcer (talk) 11:16, 8 September 2015 (UTC)

Professional Page Edits[edit]

Stop deleting my edits for Paula Franzese's page. The sources are reputable sources, and are not self-promotion because when someone wins an award, it becomes a fact that they have won an award. Many people have won an award, and such information becomes public knowledge as reported by verifiable journalistic websites. Also, do not touch the personal life section--you could have no knowledge of her personal life except through the source cited. There is no problem with the sourcing because they are verifiable links to websites where information can be found. Chesshti (talk) 13:55, 4 October 2015 (UTC)

I'm copying this to the Paula Franzese talk page and will continue the discussion there where it belongs.--Tomwsulcer (talk) 19:25, 4 October 2015 (UTC)

Thursday October 15: Women in Architecture Edit-a-thon @ Guggenheim
Women in Architecture Guggenheim Logo.jpg
NYC - Guggenheim Museum.jpg

You are invited to join us for a full afternoon and evening of social Wikipedia editing at the Guggenheim (drop-in any time, noon-8pm!), during which we will create, update, and improve Wikipedia articles covering the lives and works of women in architecture.

noon - 8pm (drop-in anytime!) at Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Garrett Lobby @ 1071 5th Ave by E 88 St

In conjunction with Archtober and New York Archives Week, the Guggenheim will host its third Wikipedia edit-a-thon—or, #guggathon— to enhance articles related to women in architecture on Wikipedia. The Guggenheim aims to further the goals of Ada Lovelace Day for STEM, and Art+Feminism for art, in a field that, by its nature combines both.

The Guggenheim will work alongside ArchiteXX, the founders of WikiD: Women Wikipedia Design #wikiD, the international education and advocacy program working to increase the number of Wikipedia articles on women in architecture and the built environment. New and experienced editors are welcome.

Can’t join us in New York? Visit our global partnerships page to discover an edit-a-thon in a city near you or simply join remotely.

We hope to see you there!--Pharos (talk) 19:34, 7 October 2015 (UTC)

FYI[edit]

A page whose deletion discussion you participated in was re-added and nominated for deletion again. See: WP:Articles_for_deletion/Karen_Franklin_(2nd_nomination) Barcaboy2 (talk) 16:37, 26 October 2015 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Karen Franklin[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Karen Franklin, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G4 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page appears to be a repost of material that was previously deleted following a deletion debate, such as at articles for deletion. Under the specified criteria, where a page has substantially identical content to that of a page deleted after debate, and any changes in the content do not address the reasons for which the material was previously deleted, it may be deleted at any time.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator, or if you have already done so, you can place a request here. ...William, is the complaint department really on the roof? 16:43, 26 October 2015 (UTC)

Space travel[edit]

Hello, Tomwsulcer! I thought I‘d follow up here … I’m not sure what article’s talk page would be most appropriate for discussion of future space travel, but I’m pretty sure it wouldn’t be about any individual star. I just wanted to mention that the special theory of relativity shows how fairly long-distance space travel is possible without exceeding the speed of light, because the effect of relativistic time dilation is to shorten the trip from the astronauts’ POV. There’s an interesting thought-experiment on the Usenet Physics FAQ called “The Relativistic Rocket”. This postulates a spacecraft that can accelerate indefinitely at a constant rate of one gee—nowhere near practicable with current technology, and requiring enormous amounts of energy among other problems, but it doesn’t contradict the laws of physics as presently understood. The idea is to accelerate until halfway to the destination, then turn around and decelerate the rest of the way so as to arrive at a slow speed. During the flight the astronauts would experience normal gravity because of the acceleration (except during the mid-flight turnaround manoeuvres, when they would be weightless). According to the equations in the FAQ, a round trip to Betelgeuse, given the 640-LY distance, would take somewhat more than 25 years (as shown on the ship’s clock). The peak speed (reached at the midpoint of each flight, once each way) would be about 99.9995% the speed of light. On returning home the travellers would find that about 1284 years of Earth time had elapsed since they left.—Odysseus1479 01:55, 7 November 2015 (UTC)

Hey, thanks! Wow, much like the movie Planet of the Apes, where long distance space travel means vastly different rates of ageing. On a spaceship to Betelgeuse, taking 25 years, it might get unbearable when the kids in the back start asking "are we there yet?" In my book, I use several convenient fictions -- the aliens can manipulate gravity with a wand (so they can give the floor of a spaceship normal gravity, say, so they can walk like they're on Earth.) Stuff like this was never explained in the Star Trek or Star Wars series -- how people could walk about normally on spaceships. In my book, for purposes of fiction and storytelling, I totally dismiss the spacetime stuff -- like it's back to Newtonian time, so the time on a planet orbiting Betelgeuse is the same as Earth, and there are no time distortions. All of this stuff simplifies the hard reality of vast distances, spacetime, laws of physics. It is good to know the real stuff to try to bring in an element of authenticity. But in real life, it would be cool to travel to distant galaxies, if the technology ever gets good enough, and is relatively safe -- it would be fun to explore the universe, and maybe your method of the 1g acceleration, flip over, deceleration -- maybe that is a way to do that.--Tomwsulcer (talk) 12:20, 7 November 2015 (UTC)

Louisiana Lightning page[edit]

About 11 months ago a page that I created, Louisiana Lightning, was contested and deleted for not enough information.

You wrote the following on the deletion page:

Wikipedia has rules regarding sources, verifiability, noteworthiness, not misusing references as spam links, and so forth, which take time to learn. My suggestion is copy-paste the existing article to your computer, learn Wikipedia's rules, then in six months maybe after the article gets deleted, you'll know how to float one which meets Wikipedia's standards? One of the rules to learn is that every business, or every distiller, deserves some kind of article because it is a distiller, or because other distilleries have articles. My guess is not all distilleries have articles about them.--Tomwsulcer (talk) 11:28, 18 December 2014 (UTC)


I took you advice and waited and learned how to write a better encyclopedia article. I used 22 external links to cite my article and it was still speedily deleted. I am trying to do things the proper way. Can you help me? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Phoenix25782000 (talkcontribs) 17:21, 10 November 2015 (UTC)

I wrote that "every business... deserves some kind of article"? If so I was mistaken. What is Louisiana Lightning? The name of a distillery? Sports team? Can you paste on my page the article that you wrote?--Tomwsulcer (talk) 20:34, 10 November 2015 (UTC)
Yes, you wrote that at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Louisiana Lightning. To an experienced editor, it was totally obvious that must have been a typo for something like "not every business... deserves some kind of article", but unfortunately Phoenix25782000, being a new editor, evidently assumed you meant what you wrote. The editor who uses the pseudonym "JamesBWatson" (talk) 20:48, 11 November 2015 (UTC)
@Phoenix25782000: You are not alone. I am also confused about wiki-deletion-rules which have become extremely convoluted over the years and as such, in my opinion, are easily manipulated by those who have agendas that may not agree with the spirit of said rules. Just my $.02. Ottawahitech (talk) 19:23, 30 December 2015 (UTC)

Louisiana Lightning page[edit]

Can you please help me with the Louisiana Lightning page? I do not understand why it is deleted.— Preceding unsigned comment added by Phoenix25782000 (talkcontribs) 14:56, 11 November 2015 (UTC)

Please understand I am busy in real life with multiple projects and probably can't get around to it for a while. I do not get paid for my Wikipedia contributions. If the article is simply about a beer or a brewery, it doesn't seem like a subject that can hold my attention.--Tomwsulcer (talk) 15:08, 11 November 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
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. For the Election committee, MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 13:59, 24 November 2015 (UTC)
