Welcome[edit]

Hi and welcome to wikipedia. I noticed you had a blank talk page, so I decided to welcome you. I hope you like it and decide to stay. Here are some handy links for newcomers.

Also you can sign your name on talk pages and vote pages with three tildes like this ~~~, and your name with a time stamp with four like this ~~~~. Howabout1 16:23, 8 May 2005 (UTC)

My biggest disappointment so far with Wikipedia has been the very permissive attitude about non-canonical material being allowed in with regard to articles about Star Trek. Admittedly a very esoteric issue, but articles that are almost entirely unofficial fan speculation being passed off with no label as being as authoritative as something that actually has been shown on screen. Apparently if I just come up with some vaguely believable sounding nonsense about anything having to do with Trek and put it in an article, it can stay because "canon" is irrelevant.--Wingsandsword 06:33, 9 May 2005 (UTC)

Lincoln County High School[edit]

Although you have that link, it is incorrect and I will tell you why. That article has been edited 4 times so far, 3 times by you and once by me. Well I edited because I actually went to that school and I know that this number is incorrect because new people enroll all the time and I have even left since then. So that number is not accruate, and it's best to estimate. I won't do it until we discuss this some. Thanks. Please reply to me on my talk page. Wwefan980 18:44, 18 August 2007 (UTC) Well I went more recently then you did... but I get what you are saying. I will look around and if I can't find another updated link I will simply not edit that page then. Wwefan980 21:52, 18 August 2007 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/Starfleet ranks and insignia[edit]

The article has been improved drasticaly, I think this is a good enough reason to reopen the FA status of this article. To be fair I am notifying all parties involved with the article on old candidacy. If I forgot one of you, its not intentional. Thats all for now Cat chi? 1 July 2005 00:15 (UTC)

Japanese martial arts titles[edit]

Hi, I was interested in your opinion about anonymous editors.

On a different topic, are you planning to write an article about menkyo kaiden some time soon? That link has been red for a long time. --DannyWilde 01:57, 20 November 2005 (UTC)

I was actually writing it right now as I recieved this message, so yes, that link should go blue in just a few minutes, only a computer crash kept it from going up about an hour ago. --Wingsandsword 02:12, 20 November 2005 (UTC)
Oh dear, that's annoying for you. --DannyWilde 14:26, 20 November 2005 (UTC)
Well, my initial stub of menkyo kaiden is up, I'm not very good with getting Kanji to appear in wikipedia, so if you want to add the proper writing for it or clear it up further go ahead, but I thought there should be at least a stub there for now. I had a longer article written but a computer crash earlier today went and ate it, so I put this up for now. I went through and wikilinked every mention of the term I could find in a search.
As for my opinion on anonymous editors, I know it's not likely to happen since the Wikimedia Foundation considers that a "Foundation Issue" and as unchangable as the NPOV doctrine, but I still want to make my feelings known. It seems like the vast, overwhelming majority of vandalism in Wikipedia comes from anonymous editors, especially those with few edits to their IP. On most message boards on the internet you can't even post without registering a user account, much less contribute to a reference work. I also wonder about the legality of anonymous editors, since the the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act requires any web site to verify that anybody posting on it is over the age of 13 (and additional reason many message boards are registration only now).
From my experience, the typical vandal is somebody who stumbles across wikipedia, realizes they can edit things, and blanks articles or inserts random jibberish, obscenities, insults or just being downright rude (like the picture of Palpatine as the portrait of Pope Benedict XVI or posting a scan of the page of "the spoiler" to Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince). By going to just the same level of verification/registration as any typical message board, you get rid of the person who does this on impulse. I understand the idea that anybody should be able to contribute to Wikipedia, and I agree with it, but I do think that there should be a step that everybody has to take first of making themself known. Yes, it won't stop the determined vandal, but that's what reverts are for. --Wingsandsword 02:54, 20 November 2005 (UTC)
Thanks for making the article. I was getting worried about the red link since it was there so long. As for vandals, I tend to wonder why anonymous editors are still allowed. I agree with you that most of the vandalism could be stopped by making people log in. I'm not so sure what principle is really involved in letting anonymous editors contribute - it doesn't seem so important to me that people can contribute without a name or email address. A lot of the vandal/administrator thing seems like cops and robbers game to me. See you around. --DannyWilde 14:26, 20 November 2005 (UTC)

Creighton Lovelace[edit]

Please have a look at my rewrite of the article. Best wishes. Durova 03:05, 16 December 2005 (UTC)

Nb ridaz[edit]

You said they made it to the charts. Which charts would those be? - Mgm|(talk) 12:47, 16 December 2005 (UTC)

Well, the article says they made it on the Billboard charts, and http://www.billboard.com/bbcom/retrieve_chart_history.do?model.vnuArtistId=467150&model.vnuAlbumId=621415] This link to Billboard's web site lists their history on the charts. --Wingsandsword 15:22, 16 December 2005 (UTC)

Image Tagging Image:Maarek stele.jpg[edit]

Warning sign
This media may be deleted.

Thanks for uploading Image:Maarek stele.jpg. I notice the 'image' page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is therefore unclear. If you have not created this media yourself then you need to argue that we have the right to use the media on Wikipedia (see copyright tagging below). If you have not created the media yourself then you should also specify where you found it, i.e., in most cases link to the website where you got it, and the terms of use for content from that page.

If the media also doesn't have a copyright tag then you must also add one. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then you can use {{GFDL}} to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media qualifies as fair use, please read fair use, and then use a tag such as {{Non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair_use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other media, please check that you have specified their source and copyright tagged them, too. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any unsourced and untagged images will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Matt 01:03, 3 February 2006 (UTC)

Hello, Wingsandsword. A vote to delete this article would be appreciated. Thanks much. --Mmeinhart 13:54, 13 March 2006 (UTC)

Uncategorized[edit]

Somehow your user page has been flagged as category needed. --Yendor1958 14:50, 22 March 2006 (UTC)

I know, I can't figure out how to remove that flag. I didn't put it there, and I don't know which edit it first appeared at. --Wingsandsword 17:21, 22 March 2006 (UTC)


Sexuality of Adolf Hitler[edit]

This article is up for vote on AFD. OSU80 01:17, 18 April 2006 (UTC)

Nebuvite AfD[edit]

Greetings! I had Nebuvite on my watchlist since I seconded the prod, so I saw that you had taken it to AfD. I've chimed in there. I also wanted to say thank you for staying diligent about keeping the AfD tag in place on the article and being firm but polite with the edit summaries. I just gave them the long-winded version of why deleting the tag doesn't help their cause on the talk page. Again, just wanted to pass on my compliments. —C.Fred (talk) 02:37, 15 May 2007 (UTC)

Error in reverting vandalism[edit]

I deleted the previous message that was left in error for vandalism committed by another user. Please accept my apologies. Therefore, I've deleted the notice that appeared here in error. If you have concerns, please let me know. lwalt 21:26, 18 May 2007 (UTC)

Volapuk_encoding[edit]

Why you revert representation of letter ~\Phi? Do you see likeness between qp and ~\Phi? Greek letter ~\Phi look like "fuck", but it is not give cause for deletion this letter.--Berserkerus 17:06, 28 May 2007 (UTC)

Fruit allergy[edit]

Just so you know, when I got to the Fruit allergy article, it was no longer just a collection of links and therefore ineligible for the speedy deletion tag you'd placed on it. As it is now, it probably doesn't fill the criteria for any speedy deletion, and a proposed deletion would certainly be contested. You can put it up for vote at WP:AFD if you like, though. --Masamage 04:28, 29 May 2007 (UTC)

Thanks![edit]

Thanks for the revert on my userpage! It is geratly appreciated. I am strill trying to figure where I incurred this chap's wrath... Thanks again and keep up the great work! --TeaDrinker 05:49, 29 May 2007 (UTC)

Please note that I restored your db-bio template. It was removed by the creator. Regards, gidonb 00:57, 31 May 2007 (UTC)

I also proposed to speedy the picture. gidonb 11:21, 31 May 2007 (UTC)

Freezing a wasp[edit]

Hi,

I've removed the proposed deletion template from the article I just created... I realise that at the moment it doesn't amount to much, but if you search for such things on youtube you'lll see how much of a craze it is. Basically I'm drunk at the moment, so don't have the coherence to write a dewcent article. But I *will* do it shortly. Best username yet 02:05, 3 June 2007 (UTC)

Please ignore[edit]

My last message! Clicked on wrong name. Cheers.--Fuhghettaboutit 02:21, 8 June 2007 (UTC)

Iniquisit[edit]

Hi, you tagged the article Iniquisit. i have made some updates and hope this is ok to no longer require your fiction tag. there are some other articles on Abarat in the catagory abarat Series (sorry dont know how to link to a catagory yet!. would you be so kind as to have a look at these as well and let me know if thy need similar clarification? regards UKbandit 16:25, 13 June 2007 (UTC)

heres the catagory. hope thats ok UKbandit 16:26, 13 June 2007 (UTC)

ibid[edit]

I have not come across it before on-line or in print. I apologise if my tone was abrasive, i've seen to may references On MA articles that refer 'History of TKD' as a reference which is completely useless for fact checking. --Nate1481(t/c) 11:53, 25 June 2007 (UTC)

Good Job![edit]

Thanks for suggesting deletion of Dan edelman. While I was wondering how to nominate AfDs, you went along and did it! Good job. ~Crowstar~ 19:13, 26 June 2007 (UTC)

Mickey Smith (artist)[edit]

Hey there, you tagged this article under CSD G4: could you provide a link to the AfD debate? Thanks, - Zeibura (Talk) 21:12, 28 June 2007 (UTC)

It was previously speedily deleted earlier today as an A7 non-notable biography (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special%3ALog&type=delete&user=&page=Mickey+Smith%2C+Artist), and the creator of the original article recreated it eight minutes later with the same content. If A7 is more appropriate than G4 since it was speedied, then file it under that. --Wingsandsword 21:17, 28 June 2007 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image (Image:KiyojuteRyu-Tomoe.jpg)[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:KiyojuteRyu-Tomoe.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 orphaned, meaning that it is 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).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BetacommandBot 05:29, 29 June 2007 (UTC)

WP:CSD#g10[edit]

Just to bring it to your attention in case you haven't noticed, before nominating an article for speedy deletion, you should look at the a couple edits before the edit where you added the CSD tag to make sure it actually should be deleted. A single (or even many) edits where people are attacking the person doesn't mean it should be deleted, unless the whole article is an attack page. In the case of Scott Gomez a couple people attacked him, you should have reverted those edits...not nominated it for CSD. Again, just want to bring this to your attention in case you didn't realize what had happened. BsroiaadnTalk 03:16, 18 July 2007 (UTC)

Why did you remove my report at: [1]? -WarthogDemon 23:01, 19 July 2007 (UTC)

I didn't intend to remove anybody's report. I was reporting User:Macho36, there was an edit conflict, and I was trying to reload the page and cut & paste my vandalism report. My apologies if in my haste I accidentally removed your report. --Wingsandsword 23:03, 19 July 2007 (UTC)
Oh okay, I was thinking that it was a mistake. Just wanted to make sure I didn't make an improper report or anything. :) In addition, I've made a bigger mistake there. One day there was little activity on that page and I made a typo in my report. I decided to revert, no harm right? I removed THREE reports that came suddenly and the page was a mess for about 10 minutes thereafter. :p Anyways, no harm done. Cheers and happy editing. :) -WarthogDemon 23:05, 19 July 2007 (UTC)

Tushball[edit]

I have merged the Tush-ball article (which you have prod-ed) into the Tushball article, and redirected Tush-ball into Tushball. You may want to prod the Tushball article instead. Please have the redirect speedy deleted if the article does not survive the prod. Royalbroil 02:22, 31 July 2007 (UTC)

I appreciate how you nominated the Tushball article for deletion. You spent the time to look for the supposed "reference" book on the internet, and you googled the term. I tend to be more of an inclusionist, and I hate how people nominate things without doing any research. Good job! Royalbroil 12:53, 2 August 2007 (UTC)

License tagging for File:63rd Aviation Standard.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:63rd Aviation Standard.jpg. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information; to add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click the "Edit" tab at the top of the page and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia.

For help in choosing the correct tag, or for any other questions, leave a message on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 14:06, 17 April 2011 (UTC)

Non-free rationale for File:Mastering Kempo.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Mastering Kempo.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under non-free content criteria, but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia is acceptable. Please go to the file description page, and edit it to include a non-free rationale.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified the non-free rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page.

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.
