Elizabeth J. Feinler[edit]

As you might have noticed, I went ahead and put her article in the DYK queue. I thought you were looking for another reviewer so I also made some edits. I see you already caught the confusion with the dates in the lead. I tried yet again to reword and hope it is less ambiguous (NIC was at SRI until 1991 but she was not, of course). Also tried to fix up some of the linked articles that are pretty bad still. More tomorrow if we have time. Thanks W Nowicki (talk) 04:27, 9 April 2011 (UTC)

Looks good. Thanks. Jeff Ogden (talk) 15:16, 9 April 2011 (UTC)

Internet censorship etc.[edit]

Awesome work. You're the man! Melchoir (talk) 08:23, 25 April 2011 (UTC)

Internet censorship in Thailand[edit]

Nice work on the revisions there--much needed paring and clean-up. Cheers Khazar (talk) 04:02, 28 May 2011 (UTC)

I did my best to pitch in over there, tweaking some grammar, links, and refs. But really you didn't leave much left to be done--again, I'm a fan. It pains me to admit I'm no good at formatting barnstars, but here's my tacky attempt all the same. Feel free to redesign, and thanks! Khazar (talk) 05:47, 30 May 2011 (UTC)

Freedom in the world[edit]

Just wanted to thank you for your work on the Freedom in the World page. Very informative. Czolgolz (talk) 22:15, 31 May 2011 (UTC)

My thanks to both Khazar and Czolgolz. And an extra thanks to Khazar for the Barnstar (my first) and for his updates to the Internet censorship in Thailand article, both are most appreciated. Jeff Ogden (talk) 23:17, 31 May 2011 (UTC)
My pleasure. Anytime you need a pedantic copy-editor for one of these, feel free to flag me down. Khazar (talk) 01:04, 1 June 2011 (UTC)

To User:W163 for his improvements to Wikipedia's coverage of Internet censorship, particularly at Internet censorship in Thailand. Khazar (talk) 03:05, 30 May 2011 (UTC)
Hail to the editor valiant!
Thanks for your notes on the talk page. I rewrote the section first using the POV material, and then removed the reformed POV material to the talk page. I removed the NPOV tag. Please review my edits, and make corrections as you like.
Cheers,  Kiefer.Wolfowitz 23:12, 9 August 2011 (UTC)
You are welcome, but since you did most of the work, it is you that deserve the thanks. I read over your changes and they look good. I'll try to do a more detailed review over the next few days. I'm going to be away from computers starting tomorrow and over the weekend and probably won't get to it before then. Jeff Ogden (talk) 18:40, 10 August 2011 (UTC)

Thank you very much for updating Press Freedom Index with the 2013 data, great work! ThomasStrohmann (talk) 04:37, 10 February 2013 (UTC)

Internet Censorship in Burma[edit]

I saw you put up a link for this one and noticed you're expanding it. I don't know to what degree you might be interested in including this, but illegal Internet use is one of the primary charges on which Burmese democratic activists are being locked up (see 88 Generation Students Group, Nilar Thein, etc.), a practice that's gotten coverage in the BBC, NY Times, etc. (see these articles for links). It might be worth working in some of these specific cases, but though I read your Thailand one, I'm not sure what the precedent is for how these articles are usually structured. Anyway, thanks as always for your excellent expansions. Khazar (talk) 17:01, 9 June 2011 (UTC)

 Done Khazar, not sure what the precedent is either, but I did something along the lines you suggested. Take a look and feel free to make corrections and other changes. Jeff Ogden (talk) 02:16, 12 June 2011 (UTC)


Please solve this mystery if you can...

On September 23rd, traffic to Portal:James Bond doubled, and has stayed at the new level since then. I can't figure out what happened.


Traffic to Outline of James Bond stayed the same (though it was at the higher-level already), which leads me to suspect changes made somewhere in Wikipedia.


I'd like to find out what happened, in case it reveals helpful link placement tips that can double the traffic to outlines too!

I look forward to your reply. The Transhumanist 23:54, 5 October 2011 (UTC)

Outline of the Internet[edit]

I've cleaned up the outline a bit, and have further developed its structure. Please take a look to see if you can improve it even more. All feedback, ideas, and advice welcome. Cheers. The Transhumanist 22:44, 8 October 2011 (UTC)

Internet censorship in Syria[edit]

hi, i may be doing something wrong here since im new to editing things on wiki so please help me understand why you keep deleting my contribution to the article "Internet censorship in Syria " and where i am going wrong there? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Xlantraymon (talkcontribs) 15:06, 5 July 2012 (UTC)

Are we talking about the change you made at 7:30 on 4 July 2012? Your change deleted two bits of content that I had added earlier about the CPJ rating Syria the 3rd most censored country in the world and about a report from the EFF. Your edit summary didn't explain why you did that. Your change also reinserted the comment about blocking of the Arabic Wikipedia that said "And it has been blocked again after a while" which I had deleted earlier as too vague and unsourced. And you changed the content related to "" that I had edited earlier. Your changes needed copyediting and the link to the WSJ graphic was not done correctly. I reverted your changes which restored the deleted content. The content about was kept, but it was edited to fix up the problems and rather than a separate section it was included in chronological order in the History section. It took me two edits to get link to the WSJ graphic right. So, from my point of view I didn't delete your entire contribution, but edited it to make it better and I restored some content of my own that you deleted. The content about has two references, but they are both from the It would be better if there was a reliable third-party source that could be used to support that section. The link to the WSJ graphic does provide some support, but the WSJ article isnt really about and so doesn't really allow one to verify the content in any detail. Hope this explains what I was doing. Thanks for asking. --Jeff Ogden (W163) (talk) 15:46, 5 July 2012 (UTC)
hi again. sorry if this reply went in the wrong place, as i said im not quite familiar with how u edit things, so when i found that my section about the was removed i supposed it could be a sort of vandalism so i went to the history and retrieved what i thought the last copy since i added the section... apparently i did it wrong so apology for that. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Xlantraymon (talkcontribs) 16:07, 5 July 2012 (UTC) (Xlantraymon (talk) 16:09, 5 July 2012 (UTC)).
however the section about is still missing on the page. i made that section couple of days before i join in with a username, since i thought editing things without registering may have been the cuz to delete that section, can u help restore that ? or let me know how i can post it properly? Xlantraymon (talk) 16:18, 5 July 2012 (UTC)
The information about is still there, just not as a separate section with its own heading. Instead it is included as a paragraph in the History section. The WSJ graphic is mentioned and there is a link to it in the reference. We can't include the graphic more directly because it belongs to the WSJ and is not a free image available to Wikipedia. Editing without registering is OK, but doing that probably makes it more likely for the changes to be deleted when there are problems with them. In general it is better to be registered. And entering good edit summaries that explain what you are changing and why is a good practice too (I don't do that myself as much as I should). --Jeff Ogden (W163) (talk) 16:32, 5 July 2012 (UTC)

my fault again...haha! thank you Xlantraymon (talk) 18:17, 5 July 2012 (UTC)

July 2012[edit]

In a recent edit to the page nternet censorship in Australia, you changed one or more words or styles from one national variety of English to another. Because Wikipedia has readers from all over the world, our policy is to respect national varieties of English in Wikipedia articles.

For a subject exclusively related to the United Kingdom (for example, a famous British person), use British English. For something related to the United States in the same way, use American English. For something related to another English-speaking country, such as Canada, Australia, or New Zealand, use the variety of English used there. For an international topic, use the form of English that the original author used.

In view of that, please don't change articles from one version of English to another, even if you don't normally use the version in which the article is written. Respect other people's versions of English. They, in turn, should respect yours. Other general guidelines on how Wikipedia articles are written can be found in the Manual of Style. If you have any questions about this, you can ask me on my talk page or visit the help desk. Thank you. Bidgee (talk) 17:33, 9 July 2012 (UTC)

If you are talking about "organizations" with a "z", that wasn't me. I was just copying and pasting text that was already part of the article as part of reordering sections and reworking the lead. -Jeff Ogden (W163) (talk) 18:40, 9 July 2012 (UTC)

Re: Internet censorship in Vietnam[edit]

Hi, that IP that puts citation needed templates on the article has been doing the same thing on numerous other articles that were ALL critical, or in opposition to, the Vietnamese communist regime, to try to doubt the content that was already there in hopes that the content would be deleted by other users. In fact, that IP has been up to severe ongoing vandalism on numerous articles on South Vietnam by calling various people " closeted homosexuals", "Catholic pigs" and other ridiculous nonsense, as well as blanking content critical of Viet communists, like in the Ho Chi Minh and North Vietnam articles. For a few days now, most edits that this IP did were adding citation needed templates everywhere on content that they didn't like, but the content that they put the templates on were all true, and often substantiated and sourced, info. So, if this IP, and any other IPs that begin with the same first 5 or so digits, that were to put such templates on such articles, like this internet censorship article, it would just be more vandalism and disruption, and it would all come from the same person since the 4 IPs that were engaged in the same type of vandalism all began with the same first 5 digits, all supposedly from Los Angeles through AT&T. If these templates were added, appropriately, fairly and as needed, by someone else, I wouldn't have removed it. Nguyen1310 (talk) 21:41, 16 July 2012 (UTC)

History of the Internet[edit]

You said that my comment about the possible first public user was interesting but needed a citation. My post (which was, I think obviously, about me) is based on first person knowledge. I intentionally included some of the detail, and the interesting information, to enhance value and to add authenticity. I have been making the claim, for many years, that I was the "first user of the internet." For 20 years I have done so as with a humorous slant. However, since no one has contradicted me during those 20 years, it appears to be a true statement.

HOWEVER, I am not familiar with Wiki rules and etiquite and I am interested in your thoughts about what "citation" would be necessary to allow the information to stand, pending any truly contrary data. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sbrower1 (talkcontribs) 05:54, 10 March 2013 (UTC)

You might want to look at the Wikipedia:Plain and simple conflict of interest guide, which among other things says: "Do not edit articles about yourself, your business, your clients, or your competitors" and "Subjects require significant coverage in independent reliable sources". Also, you said "since no one has contradicted me during those 20 years, it appears to be a true statement". But you might also ask if in those 20 years anyone has agreed with you? --Jeff Ogden (W163) (talk) 11:38, 10 March 2013 (UTC)

I moved a copy of this discussion over to Talk:History of the Internet#First "public" use of the arpanet/internet?. Please continue the discussion there. --Jeff Ogden (W163) (talk) 16:07, 10 March 2013 (UTC)

We use commonname in articles, in the lead and infoboxes. This isnt "having it both ways", but an arangement that has come from an Arb-Com ruling, to basically stop the edit wars on Irish related articles, and was amended by the project. There is an on-going discussion on categories, where an admin has asked for clarity on catergory usage. So its not straight forward for anyone not familar with it. The first two points of WP:IRE-IRL clearly indicate what should be used in the lead, and as for the link you summaried with "When the page title is used as the subject of the first sentence, it may appear in a slightly different form, and it may include variations".

classful ip addresses[edit]

hey W163 in the article Internet_protocol_suite you commented "the video explains "classfull" IP addresses, but we've been using "classless" IP addresses for over 20 years now". I am not sure if I understand you correctly. We are using Classless_Inter-Domain_Routing but IP adresses still come with a network class even though these networks might be divided into further subnets? How and where exactly do you see the need for an update? maybe you could give your feedback and thoughts on the talk page of the video on commons File:Classful-IPv4-networks.webm best --Renepick (talk) 00:38, 23 October 2013 (UTC)

will do. --Jeff Ogden (W163) (talk) 02:03, 23 October 2013 (UTC)

Internet in Belgium[edit]

Hello, I saw your note with an edit to Internet in Belgium. I had looked at the spreadsheet and didn't see number of users or a way to figure the ranking for number of users. I'm curious how you got the figure. Did you cross reference that table with population data for all the countries to find the number of Internet users in each country? That sounds like a ton of work - there must be a better way. I'm wondering how you came up with the 8.6 million figure. I just ran the question on Wolfram Alpha and it gives a figure of 9.1 million also with 82%, but it doesn't explain the source of their figures so I wouldn't call it a reliable source. Thanks for satisfying my curiosity, SchreiberBike talk 02:59, 17 November 2013 (UTC)

The figures in the "Internet in Belgium" article (and a lot of other "Internet in xxxx" articles) comes from the List of countries by number of Internet users article. They use data from the ITU as a common source. The ITU gives a percentage as you saw. The total population for most countries comes from figures from the U.S. Census Bureau. And the rest is simple math. It is a bit of work, but not too bad since you can get the data into a common spreadsheet using copy and paste and matching the country names from the two sources can be automated too. There are two notes, one for the population column[1] and one for the percentage column[2] in the article that try to explain what was done and some additional information on the talk page. We try to use data from a single source (the ITU) for all countries and to update the figures for all countries at the same time so that the figures will be comparable. This has the side effect of only needing to be updated once a year since the ITU data is updated once a year. And that cuts down on the work a bit.

--Jeff Ogden (W163) (talk) 12:46, 17 November 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for your clear explanation. Seeing that you are using the figures for multiple countries' articles, that sounds like a good approach. SchreiberBike talk 17:32, 17 November 2013 (UTC)

Freedom House[edit]

Hello, you recently reverted my changes at Freedom House page. Please explain me, where is any astrerix marking that these countries are electoral democracies? . . . (talk) 18:43, 26 January 2014 (UTC)

I copied this discussion over to "Talk:Freedom House#Map caption?". I don't know that there is much more than needs to be said about the map caption, but if there is lets do it over on that talk page. --Jeff Ogden (W163) (talk) 14:40, 27 January 2014 (UTC)

Joy of template "recent revision"[edit]

I suggest that if and when you apply {{recently_revised}} to an article, that you go back and remove it after a two or three days. At that point it is no longer recent. It is the ordinary state of affairs that any article could benefit from improvement and attention, or has been recently edited, and as such, the {{recently_revised}} template is actually superfluous.
-- Yellowdesk (talk) 18:05, 5 February 2014 (UTC)

I don't agree. In addition to looking at the word "recently", one should look at what else the template says: "recently underwent a major revision or rewrite" (emphasis added). The major revision or rewrite takes this outside of the "ordinary state of affairs". Also, "recently" is a relative term. I think old "recently revised" templates should be removed, but for fairly low traffic articles such as the ones that I have been working on, I think it is reasonable to leave the template in place for a month or so. The goal is to get a few more editors to notice, look over, and hopefully get enough of their interest so they join in the process of editing and improving the articles. Heaven knows that some of the articles I've been editing recently are long neglected and out of date and could use more attention than they have been getting. And two or three days just isn't a long enough time for people to visit many of these articles and see the recently revised notice. There was some mention of ≈1 month on the template's talk page, but nothing as short as a few days. --Jeff Ogden (W163) (talk) 18:56, 5 February 2014 (UTC)
Fair enough. I'll refrain from removing your more recent additions of the template for several weeks. -- Yellowdesk (talk) 04:54, 6 February 2014 (UTC)
Thanks! I'll try to remember to go back and remove the templates after 3 to 5 weeks. --Jeff Ogden (W163) (talk) 05:46, 6 February 2014 (UTC)

World press freedom index[edit]

hey, could you update your map to the newest report: -- (talk) 23:21, 11 February 2014 (UTC)

I assume the map you are talking about is File:RWB-PressFreedomIndex2013-WorldMap.svg. It isn't my map, but I'll look into updating it. It may take awhile. I took a quick look at the RWB website and I didn't see a list of countries with their 2014 ratings. All I found were text descriptions and a map without a key. Perhaps I missed it. Hints welcome. The RWB article is dated 12 February, which is tomorrow, so perhaps they are still in the process of putting everything in place. --Jeff Ogden (W163) (talk) 00:12, 12 February 2014 (UTC)

Reasons not to comply with map issue in a hurry[edit]

Hi Jeff. I was caught up in a family emergency and failed to realise that I hadn't left you a message regarding the above request.

Please don't put pressure on yourself to update the map. I'm simply toying a little with this 'contributor' as I've recognised them as being sock/s for a particularly persistent, blocked user. The same user, with multiple IP addresses, has also been recognised as being such by Favonian. His/her MO is written all over the entries, and their favourite method of bypassing being blocked is by delegating work to other editors & contributors.

While I recognise that the map should be updated, there has been absolutely no other regular contributor even interested in updating the info, much less feeling that an updated map is an absolute imperative. Before I can re-open the sock investigation, I just need a little more interaction in order to confirm it. There's already been 2 instances of calling me 'Irina'... another signature boo-boo he/she makes.

Cheers for your patience with me. --Iryna Harpy (talk) 06:03, 15 February 2014 (UTC)

Picnic photo[edit]

I thought it looked awfully familiar, and sure enough I was able to track down my own print, along with negative, in my basement archives. I must've given a copy to Computing News for use at some point.

Hello Mr. Ogden,
Thanks for your commenting on the freedom of speech talk page. I believe that according to your listed experience here on this page that you don't have the necessary qualifications to continue discussing/debating (these words are synonymous) the freedom of speech with me. However, I don't mind the commenting except please stay focused on the point I am making. You seem like you have a computer background. My background is 100% freedom of speech. I've read every online dictionary, among other printed versions...; so when you argue with me it's really annoying for me. I suggest you focus on the intent of the pages and my comments instead of what you think (because this seems to not be your field). The intent of the freedom of speech page seems to be freedom of speech, not limitation of speech. -Austin @

The following comment was added to the talk page of by User:Iryna Harpy around the same time that's edit to my user page was reverted. -Jeff Ogden (W163) (talk) 12:33, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

Constructive contributions are appreciated and strongly encouraged, but your recent edit to the userpage of another user may be considered vandalism. Specifically, your edit to User:W163 may be offensive or unwelcome. In general, it is considered polite to avoid substantially editing others' userpages without their permission. Instead, please bring the matter to their talk page and let them edit their user page themselves if they agree on a need to do so. Please refer to Wikipedia:User page for more information on User page etiquette.
Any discussions you wish to engage in should be posted to the user's talk page, not their user page. As a word of warning, Wikipedia policy is to assume good faith. I would suggest it prudent that you rethink your supercilious tone before engaging with the editor in question.

Links within the body of an article should be internal Wikilinks. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you.

Internet governance and telecommunications regulation[edit]

Let me draw your attention to a note on my misgivings pertaining to the present state of Wikipedia structure on this page:

The growth of the Internet has made it imperative to distinguish better between governance and regulation, more specifically, Internet governance and how it relates to the more traditional field of telecommunications regulation.

Even more particularly, I protest against deficits on pages like this:

   "Regulation" is inadequately put here
   and here "Policy" is reduced to "Law",

Are you concerned with this lack? If so, please let me know. Seniorexpat (talk) 20:27, 21 November 2015 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:MeritLogo2005.jpg[edit]


Thanks for uploading File:MeritLogo2005.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. --B-bot (talk) 17:44, 26 August 2016 (UTC)
