About My Edits[edit]

I have made a few corrections on various articles. I have contributed the most on the article on SoundSpel. It's a struggle to find informative sources on the subject. This seems to suggest that it's an unpopular cause. People need to be educated about it if it's going to get anywhere. I think it's the best spelling reform proposal I've seen because it uses the principle of using what's right with the English language to fix what's wrong with it. -SpellcheckW7 (talk) 23:56, 14 May 2008 (UTC)

As an Aerobie owner, I have also made major revisions to the Aerobie article. -06:26, 18 June 2008 (UTC)

See my user page for what I am working on and planning to work on.

Reversion of Josh Groban[edit]

I reverted your [and someone else's] edits on the article and I responded on the talk page. Basically your assertions on his vocal range were unsourced and honestly unbelievable as they would place his voice below the typical bass and above the typical tenor. It is possible that you were [someone was] including notes he can hit in the falsetto and vocal fry registers but voice type is based in the modal register and does not count pitches a singer can hit in another register. Also, vocal classification practices would not allow a singer to be classified as both a tenor and baritone. I personally think he is what is known as a Helden Tenor which is a tenor with a vocal timbre similar to that of a baritone.Nrswanson (talk) 15:33, 30 May 2008 (UTC)

(Approval of changes pending.) --WikiWes77 (talk) 19:57, 31 July 2008 (UTC)
Again, I did not add that unsourced, unbelievable information about his range. And when I have information that shows that he is lower than a tenor by any definition, I don't know how you can argue with that. He can clearly sing lower than that, and he doesn't have a tenor C. -WikiWes77 (talk) 18:43, 3 June 2008 (UTC)
Note: we agree to leave him classified as neither tenor nor baritone, with evidence for each stated in the article. --WikiWes77 (talk) 22:52, 12 July 2008 (UTC)

Image policy[edit]

Not unless they conform with Image policy -- free licenses only. I don't think "available for retailers" cuts it. Andre (talk) 05:39, 28 June 2008 (UTC)

Joseph Smith article[edit]

Thanks for your comment. I would encourage you to get right in there and make changes that better reflect a NPOV tone. As you can see, there is a small group of ongoing editors, each from a different perspective, and all try to tug back & forth until a section is balanced. That upon which you placed the tag has just been added and needs to be scrutinized - hope you can help out. Best, A Sniper (talk) 20:10, 14 July 2008 (UTC)

Hi Wes[edit]

My main wiki interests re: religion are based on personal circumstances. They are, on the one hand, nineteenth century development of Reform Judaism, and on the other, Joseph Smith, Jr./Joseph Smith III - from the JSJr./JSIII Smith family perspective, in particular. Best, A Sniper (talk) 05:31, 21 July 2008 (UTC)

Editing talk page posts[edit]

Except for limited circumstances such as removing personal attacks, adding {{unsigned}}, fixing a malformed link, indenting when a post is confusingly placed, etc., you should never edit other people's talk page posts, as you did to mine. I understand you are a new user so didn't know, but keep it in mind. Cheers.--Fuhghettaboutit (talk) 02:14, 31 July 2008 (UTC)

So you're saying rules for editing talk pages are much more rigid than for modifying content of articles? --WikiWes77 (talk) 02:37, 31 July 2008 (UTC)
Okay. I've looked at Wikipedia:Talk page guidelines. I should get permission first. I didn't think correcting spelling was a big deal, but I can see how it could be annoying. I don't feel like I'm all that new, but I don't think I had read that before. --WikiWes77 (talk) 02:51, 31 July 2008 (UTC)
That page puts it milder than many users take it. I have seen users blow up way out of proportion when someone has done so. Whereas an article is 100% the public face and not owned by anyone, a user's post is signed; it is theirs, and I think people feel invaded when someone elese changes their signed writing. I know I find it annoying but not to the extreme of others I've seen. It's a pretty useless activity anyway, even if it didn't offend anyone.--Fuhghettaboutit (talk) 03:11, 31 July 2008 (UTC)
The ideal response would be, "Thanks for fixing my spelling." But I won't generally expect that of people. But fortunately, I haven't run into anyone all that grumpy. --WikiWes77 (talk) 19:45, 31 July 2008 (UTC)
I sea you our a persen of grate restrante. I notissed the "else" typo aftar I postad above and you did'nt change it!--Fuhghettaboutit (talk) 11:44, 31 July 2008 (UTC)

welcoming Users.[edit]

hi thanks for the note on my talkpage you may not have been aware but I am on holiday at the moment and am just in an interent cafe. But thanks for the advice I hadnt thought about that. Is there anyway that we could propose to do something that welcomes them to wikipedia and thenwhen they have edited say thanks for the contributions? BountyHunter2008 (talk) 18:22, 22 August 2008 (UTC)

How about giving them a link to something? --WikiWes77 (talk) 01:57, 8 September 2008 (UTC)

Image:Rings-Group-HR.jpg[edit]

You forgot to put a copyright tag on this image. Regards, Sdrtirs (talk) 23:37, 24 August 2008 (UTC)

I got permission to use the image, but was told that wasn't enough. So do I need to get the owner to release the copyright and put the image in the public domain? If so, how should I go about this? --WikiWes77 (talk) 02:01, 8 September 2008 (UTC)
