Wikipedia:Requests for comment/Whaleto[edit]

I have moved to close the RfC before it turns into the usual cesspit. Since you have apparently stopped adding your sites to the project, there appears to be no pressing need to escalate at this point. There are reports of attacks on Talk pages and your websites against other editors; I presume you know that personal attacks are banned, whether on Wikipedia or externally. I have not seen the edvidence myself so I make no judgment here, I'm just ensuring you know. Just zis Guy you know? 19:22, 4 May 2006 (UTC)

John, I note that you are removing the attack pages from your site, which is good. Please ensure that you remove all pages referring to Wikipedia editors, your comments regarding other editors should be adressed via Talk pages. Just zis Guy you know? 11:35, 5 May 2006 (UTC)

Archive[edit]

John, would you mind archiving some of your old Talk please? Edits are not working right.

Also per your last comment, I'd suggest that you don't make your behaviour conditional on that of others; if there are tendentious edits by another user you are best advised to report them factually and neutrally on the noticeboard or on my Talk. Just zis Guy you know? 22:44, 5 May 2006 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Thank you for updating your User page to be more friendly! InvictaHOG 00:17, 6 May 2006 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Thanks for removing the attacks on outside sites. I don't ever intend my edits to be destructive or POV, if that is ever their effect, then let me know and I will do my best to see things through other eyes. I try to remove POV when I recognise it, regardless of whether I agree with it or not. But I deal with facts, and facts that are inconvenient ar the most interesting and challenging, I'm not in the business of suppressing them. If I can find time, I will help to formulate challenges to accepted views as rigorously as possible.Gleng 08:13, 6 May 2006 (UTC)

Nomination of Gerhard Buchwald for deletion[edit]

Hi, I've nominated the above article for deletion. The person described is not relevant in the medical field, but also not relevant in other regards. His protests against vaccination are not that prominent at all. Regards, --Biologos 11:43, 18 June 2007 (UTC)

Vandalism to user pages[edit]

John, the fact that CDN99 has left does not make it permissible for you to vandalise his userpage.[1] This is behaviour that can lead to banning. JFW | T@lk 23:06, 13 August 2007 (UTC)

Glad you are still tagging me, so you can see a decent Martin Walker page www.whale.to/b/walker_h.html

In fact I only noticed your ongoing presence as a result of the Martin Walker vote; I cannot be bothered to "tag" you (whatever that means). I have no desire to start reading your website; Walker is a conspiracy theorist like so many others. JFW | T@lk 21:40, 16 August 2007 (UTC)

Nomination of Charles Pearce for deletion[edit]

Hi, I've nominated the above article for deletion. As you may have seen, I strongly supported the inclusion of William Tebb and expanded the article, but sources are very thin on Pearce, which I think reflects a much lower level of notability. Gordonofcartoon 21:33, 16 August 2007 (UTC)

Survey request[edit]

Hi, Whaleto I need your help. I am working on a research project at Boston College, studying creation of medical information on Wikipedia. You are being contacted because you have been identified as an important contributor to one or more articles.

Would you will be willing to answer a few questions about your experience? We've done considerable background research, but we would also like to gather the insight of the actual editors. Details about the project can be found at the user page of the project leader, geraldckane. Survey questions can be found at geraldckane/medsurvey. Your privacy and confidentiality will be strictly protected!

The questions should only take a few minutes. I hope you will be willing to complete the survey, as we do value your insight. Please do not hesitate to contact me or Professor Kane if you have any questions. Thank You, BCproject (talk) 08:17, 3 August 2008 (UTC)

Censored[edit]

if you have a copy of the articles you have written who have been censored here at nazipedia then please post the text at xiandos.info or e-mail it to xiando at xiando.com. btw, I love whale.to, great resource, thank you for maintaining it. --x —Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.237.206.147 (talk) 06:11, 15 December 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of John Scudamore (Creator of website whale.to)[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 John Scudamore (Creator of website whale.to) requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

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 "Click here to 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.  GILO   A&E 14:16, 21 August 2015 (UTC)
