Hello! I noticed that you are a member of WikiProject Plants. Therefore you may be interested in supporting the nomination of Cactus to the Article Improvement Drive. There are woefully few plant articles among the featured articles. Furthermore, Cactus definitely deserves a better article. this is our chance! If you agree, you can suppost the nomination at the AID page. --Chino 04:50, 29 October 2006 (UTC)

I'm afraid that I know little about cacti. Best wishes, Walter Siegmund (talk) 19:57, 3 November 2006 (UTC)

Thank you...

...for your support of my recent RfA. If I can ever be of any service to you, do not hesitate to drop me a line. BTW, have you eaten at Matt's Gourmet Hot Dogs? Is it any good? youngamerican (ahoy hoy) 19:51, 3 November 2006 (UTC)

I can't say that I have. Best wishes, Walter Siegmund (talk) 19:56, 3 November 2006 (UTC)

Copyright Violations

Thanks for the note and directions to the right place. however, the author of the page is (as it turns out) also the author of the material copied. A couple of us at the Wikibiography project are now going to rewrite the text, using that info as a base text and citing it as source, as well as finding other sources. This will resolve any plagiarism issues, and also remove the POV that is currently in the article. Jeffpw 11:52, 5 November 2006 (UTC)

I'm pleased to have been helpful. --Walter Siegmund (talk) 13:11, 5 November 2006 (UTC)

what vandalism?

in what way did i vandalize the edmonds page? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) 03:10, 6 November 2006.

An offensive edit to Edmonds was made from your ip address.[1] It may be that you share this ip with others. You can avoid association with the edits by others by establishing a username. Best wishes, Walter Siegmund (talk) 03:43, 6 November 2006 (UTC)

Care to examine this?

Been trying to get this to be more species specific...also, do you think I am going out on a limb by talking Geist's suggestions and giving this species a new name? Here's the link...I want to avoid a WP:NOR issue regarding the species naming, but the evidence bears it out and the talk page consensus over at Red Deer indicates we should proceed this way.--MONGO 11:48, 6 November 2006 (UTC)

I'll comment at Talk:Red Deer. Best wishes, Walter Siegmund (talk) 16:47, 6 November 2006 (UTC)

RfA thanks

Gorilla mother and baby at Volcans National Park.jpg Hi Wsiegmund, and thanks for your participation at the recent RfA, which did not succeed. For those of you who expressed their support, your kind words and your trust are sincerely appreciated. For those who were opposed --especially those who offered their constructive criticism-- please accept this message as assurance that equally sincere efforts, aimed at enhancing the quality and accuracy of representations within the Wikipedia, will continue. Striving for improved collaboration and consensus will also continue, with all of your insights in mind, while applying NPOV ideals as fairly and reasonably as possible.

Please review WP:VAND. "Any good-faith effort to improve the encyclopedia, even if misguided or ill-considered, is not vandalism. Apparent bad-faith edits that do not make their bad-faith nature inarguably explicit are not considered vandalism at Wikipedia." You and I may not agree on content, but that is an editorial dispute. To characterize it otherwise demonstrates that you misunderstand the policies and guidelines of Wikipedia, in my judgement. --Walter Siegmund (talk) 16:34, 10 November 2006 (UTC)
Use of "vandalism" templates is not the proper fashion to address the issues raised. The title of this thread, while I have not changed it, is also uncivil. Please see discussion at User talk:MONGO for more. Newyorkbrad 21:18, 10 November 2006 (UTC)

RFA Thanks

Thanks for your input on my (nearly recent) Request for adminship, which regretfully achived no consensus, with votes of 68/28/2. I am grateful for the input received, both positive and in opposition, and I'd like to thank you for your participation.

Photo permission

Hi, Walter:

I'm writing you about your Mt. Rainier photo 7431. My name is John Copeland, and I'm currently producing a television documentary on our planet called, "Faces of Earth."

Faces of Earth is a story of Earth as told by the people that know her most intimately - geoscientists. Remarkable systems have transformed Earth as it has evolved from the deep past to today defining and shaping everything on the planet, even us humans. Today, Geoscientists are using their creativity coupled with new technologies in exciting ways to further understand the intricacies of Earth’s systems.

I am wondering if it might be possible for us to license your photo for the show? I am also curious if you have it in a larger file size than 1600 x 1200?

Look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards,

John Copeland
