Call me Wirkman. I am by profession an editor, but my status on Wikipedia is amateur (like nearly everybody else) and my work here is only occasional. My interests and knowledge range from literature and music to philosophy and economics, with huge and obscure chunks of history to go with these interests. I have contributed to the Francis Marion Crawford and James Branch Cabell entries. When I find time, I will no doubt contribute to other Wikipedia articles.

Superorganism additions[edit]

Looks really good, Nice to see some references added to that one too! The Section on social superorganisms looks especially good; nice touch adding in the parts about the semi-metaphorical nature there. I think if someone can find a cite for it the wikipedia can qualify as an example of the united interests form of a superorganism. I am also looking into adding some stuff about the Adam Smith concept of the "invisible hand" of free market economics: just look at the rise of the hybrid car for that. Some people demand higher gas milage, some people want to protect the environment, some people want to do both without loosing engine power, and we end up with all three in one car. We can have our cake and get good gas milage too ;) Keep up the good work!--Scorpion451 rant 04:33, 31 July 2007 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:Sonicseasonings.jpg)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Sonicseasonings.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media 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 media 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 all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BetacommandBot 14:45, 25 October 2007 (UTC)

Carlton Appelo[edit]

Another editor has added the {{prod}} template to the article Carlton Appelo, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but the editor doesn't believe it satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and has explained why in the article (see also Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not and Wikipedia:Notability). Please either work to improve the article if the topic is worthy of inclusion in Wikipedia or discuss the relevant issues at its talk page. If you remove the {{prod}} template, the article will not be deleted, but note that it may still be sent to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.
