Your RfA

Nice of you to forgive me, but to be fair, you guys have us Blue's Clues. And there can be no greater sin. :)

Glad to hear your request went well, by the way. Have fun! Daveydweeb (chat/patch) 21:59, 3 November 2006 (UTC)

Congratulations! And thanks for the kind words... I hope my exams go well, too. :p riana_dzasta 02:09, 4 November 2006 (UTC)


Glad to hear you ran the gauntlet successfully, and I know you'll do a great job.

Oh, drat - everytime I see your user name I get Bowie in my head, and now I'll be humming this all night. _Again_. :-) See you around - KrakatoaKatie 00:59, 4 November 2006 (UTC)

Congrats! Good luck with your admin tools, hope to see you around on Wikipedia. OK, I will do the Singapore hot dogs. :) --Terence Ong (T | C) 04:05, 4 November 2006 (UTC)

User:Tajik vandalizes every page I edit


I just randomly selected your name from the list to ask if you can help me please. Everyday I edit cities of Afghanistan but right away User:Tajik reverts all my hard work claiming everything I add to the articles is POV or nonsense. I have 100% full information on entire Afghanistan and everything I add is also sourced. This User:Tajik has a serious problem with me over ethnic issues. For example: I added at the end of Herat article that the city is in control of the new Afghan government along with NATO forces being there assissting the government. However, User:Tajik claims this is nonsense and reverted the page. I rather not revert pages but settle the dispute in a nice manner on the talk page...something he does not responds to. I tried this on Kandahar talk page but did not get any responses from User:Tajik. I don't know what to do with this User:Tajik. It is not just one page he reverts but every page I visit. The reason for this is that his ethnics are from Tajiks and I am Pashtun. He does not trust western sources but relies only on Iranian sources. At one time he reverted 3 times in a row and when I reported him to another Administer {William M. Connolley), no action was taken against him. I would appreciate it if you could help me stop User:Tajik from vandalizing my edits. Thank You! NisarKand 12:12, November 5, 2006

Congrats on your promotion

It was my pleasure to be able to vote support. Good luck!--MONGO 06:42, 5 November 2006 (UTC)

Congrats+Free stuff

My band does have free downloadable and streaming tracks through our website here, if you would like to listen to that while you're savoring your victory. (We just finished playing a show tonight — a guy from Geffen Records was there among others, and we've been accepted by a major booking agency it seems as well.) Enough about me... Congrats on the RfA and remember to check the history, and the talk page. ;-) Grandmasterka 08:03, 5 November 2006 (UTC)

Excellent. We'll see about that. Our main webpage was hijacked by our former bass player yesterday, who left the band angrily (very long story.) So, I had to re-link you to slow-as-molasses MySpace. Grandmasterka 19:36, 6 November 2006 (UTC)

Mills McCartney

I'm not so sure it was good idea to remove the lock from this page. I guess it follows that vandalism to the page might have died down because of the lock. Now it's removed it's open season. It would have been better to discuss this on the talk page first, at least as a courtesy to the number of editors who've constantly tried to keep this page in a reasonable state. It's a feature of Wikipedia that all edits are visible, and given some of the highly offensive remarks made about her on the article page, it doesn't show Wikipedia in a good light - or put it in a strong position if any legal accusations were made against it. Please don't reply to me - these issues are better discussed on the article talk page. Escaper7 10:29, 5 November 2006 (UTC)

RE: Why???

sorry i taught it was a bad word detected for that reason i reverted your changes ,i apologies for the mistake really i did not take care og the subject of the pages promising that that i will take care next time .

Congratulations. Here are what pass for words of wisdom from the puppy:
  1. Remember you will always protect the wrong version.
  2. Remember you must always follow the rules, except for when you ignore them. You will always pick the wrong one to do. (See #5)
  3. Remember to assume good faith and not bite. Remember that when you are applying these principles most diligently, you are probably dealing with a troll.
  4. Use the block ability sparingly. Enjoy the insults you receive when you do block.
  5. Remember when you make these errors, someone will be more than happy to point them out to you in dazzling clarity and descriptive terminology.
  6. and finally, Remember to contact me if you ever need assistance, and I will do what I am able.

Hi Youngamerican! Wow, I'm so touched. I hope no one else asks me that question, because I'll start to get big-headed about it :) (I must be doing something right - or maybe not doing enough harm?) After my exams, I'm going to India to see the rellies. But I'll definitely consider running in late January or so. My thoughts have been turning increasingly in that direction - I think most people's do, after a certain period of time. riana_dzasta 20:55, 7 November 2006 (UTC)

Haha! I've got 3 other people who have very kindly offered to nom me, as well *cartoon of Riana's head flying around like a popped balloon* There are lots of areas where I have very little experience - images in particular, which have always interested me, but intimidated me at the same time. I'll do some reading between finishing exams and packing :) riana_dzasta 21:06, 7 November 2006 (UTC)

Three Churches Hollow Road

I would agree that Three Churches Hollow Road is a non-notable subject, but its part of the state highway system. Since we haven't really progressed on that (but the link from the West Virginia State Highways page exists, we should engage in a discussion to see how we should go about doing this. My reasons:

a) We would have literally over one thousand new pages on county routes, some of which have duplicate numbers. b) What about "house" routes? They are technically part of the state route system, so we must make restrictions on what should and should not be added. c) A single page listing the notable secondary routes, such as CR 21, would be more appropriate. Ones like CR 5/4 isn't needed IMO.

Your thoughts on this is greatly appreciated. I plan on bringing this to full light on the project soon. Seicer (talk) (contribs) 03:18, 8 November 2006 (UTC)

How to proceed after copyvio tag

I thought I would ask my favorite (or closest?) administrator this question. On 10/29 I marked an article for copyvio. Since that time no effort has been made to improve the article or fix the copyvio. As the copied material still exists in the history, I wonder if it is time delete the article. Is this appropriate for me to propose to AfD, or should I just ask an administrator (say you) to delete it? WVhybrid 00:33, 9 November 2006 (UTC)

Separating textboxes from the contents

Sorry to bother you. First, thanks for your advice. But more to the point, I need to seperate the contents from the userbox. What do I do? Sorry again, Boy94.



Given the recent attacks on Ed Bradley's article, isn't it time to seriously revisit the subject of limiting edits to registered Users?

Thanks for the note

Thanks for note about putting a note on the site. I am depositing this content for the copyright holder, who is fatally ill. I have not be on wiki for some time. I was here in the eary days when there were less than 50,000 article. Can you bring me up to speed on this - Do I leave remarks to your comments on my talk page or on your talk page. Doom-chronicle 21:32, 9 November 2006 (UTC)

Interesting indeed! You're right that it is not vandalism but it sure looked like it when I was reading the article =) Thanks for heads up, I'll post an apology on the user's talk page. --Palffy 04:26, 10 November 2006 (UTC)


Why did you delete my page I spent ages on? That is, Martin Randall Travel. It was accurate and worthy of an article. I only check around every couple of weeks due to busyness, five days isn't enough! Please explain your actions!

Thanks for the recognition. Doctorindy 15:59, 10 November 2006 (UTC)

Martin Randall Travel

Hello. I went ahead and speedy deleted the article as spam (CSD G11), as it wasn't even a borderline case. To be honest, even if all the advert wording were to be cut out it would still be a non-notable company anyway. Just thought you'd want to know. --cholmes75 (chit chat) 04:14, 13 November 2006 (UTC)

Shiny new buttons

Lt Mike Hunter 1.jpg Two weeks ago I couldn't even spell administratur and now I are one (in no small part thanks to your support). Now that I checked out those new buttons I realize that I can unleash mutant monsters on unsuspecting articles or summon batteries of laser guns in their defense. The move button has now acquired special powers, and there's even a feature to roll back time. With such awesome new powers at my fingertips I will try to tread lightly to avoid causing irreversible damage and getting into any wheel wars. Thanks again and let me know whenever I can be of use.

I think before I think about that I need to work in some other areas. I've gotten so heavily into RCP that I haven't done any serious article work in months. I think I need to switch back over to that side of things for a while first. Fan-1967 14:54, 17 November 2006 (UTC)

Sorry about the curtness last night. Something happened in real life that made double redirects and internet civility seem like peanuts in the grand scheme of things. youngamerican (ahoy hoy) 13:09, 21 November 2006 (UTC)

Thank you for helping remove the tag on my Sullivan article, because that is the only really useful info I have. I have logged in as a different user, District Attorney.

Concerned about deletion of "List of gay slang words and phrases"

Hi there,

I'm concerned about the deletion of the "List of gay slang words and phrases". I see that the original suggestion was that this be deleted because CSD G10 ("attack page intended to disparage its subject"). I see the discussion that was had. The page as-was clearly needs work. But I don't think it disparaged GLBT people. I think it merits restoration because

(a) This information is hard to come by (b) Other pages link to it (e.g. [even though the talk page discusses the difference between that page and the "List of gay slang words and phrases"]

(as retrieved from Google cache at )

If it can't be restored, perhaps it should be transwikied? Can you point me to information on what happens to deleted articles?

Pardon any etiquette errors--I'm quite new here.

Reply to user:Seicer

:( Sorry to hear about the camera loss, that is like a big pain in my side (I loathe cameras). I grabbed a quick and dirty shot for the Pink Bridge Incident but it was horrible. That bridge is _hideous_ and will be fading into splotches of pink and dingy white because of the poor quality of ... indoor paint? It's not latex-bonding concrete paint and was cheaply done.

Go see the 12th Street bridge that he had to repaint white. It's a mess of two colours and one can see how this pink bridge will look real soon. Seicer (talk) (contribs) 04:14, 29 November 2006 (UTC)

My RfA

Hindenburg burning.jpg
Oh, the humanity!

I had my doubts about a second RfA, but even I couldn't have predicted the way it caught fire and inexorably drifted to the ground in flames, causing quite a stir on its way down. Still, it was encouraging to see the level of support and confidence. Thank you for yours, and I hope I'll still have it the next time around. Kafziel Talk 13:31, 29 November 2006 (UTC)

Interested in prodded articles?

I've prodded a few poorly written articles lately in hope that they would be improved. I wondered if you would take a look at one and tell me if you think the prod was appropriate, and, as it hasn't been improved, delete it if you think should be. An example article is: Trinity Christian School, Dublin. Thanks WVhybrid 23:48, 29 November 2006 (UTC)

Britney Spears

You've been watching it more than I have today. Does the article need semi-protection until everyone settles down from seeing her naughty bits online? youngamerican (ahoy hoy) 01:54, 30 November 2006 (UTC)

Risembool Ranger article


I am an Officer for Vic Mignogna's fangroup, The Risembool Rangers, and it's been brought to our attention that the Risembool Rangers Wiki article was deleted.

I would like to know what actions we can take to undelete our article, and what the article was marked for deletion for.

Thank you in advance,

An editor has asked for a deletion review of Risembool Rangers. Since you closed the deletion discussion for (or speedy-deleted) this article, your reasons on how or why you did so will be greatly appreciated in the above review.

I am not totally sure, I have asked them to provide proof that PWI gave the title world title status but they have yet to provide it. TJ Spyke 21:00, 1 December 2006 (UTC)

Why was World class standards deleted?

I ran across a red link to it in New Math, and it sounded interesting, so I created a stub. In the process of Googling for material on it, I ran across a fairly decent article on it in Wikipedia mirror

I am not very experienced at tracing deletions, but all I found was that you deleted it uncontested on Nov. 3. I assume you probably deleted it since it is just a phrase and not really anything official. Or alternatively, it was very similar to one of the top Google hits, so maybe plagiarism was your objection?

I think the article's main value is in Wikipedia:Build the web, and I also believe in Wikipedia:Wikipedia is not paper. I also love the fact that Wikipedia is the most comprehensive resource anywhere, where you can always get information on ANYTHING, and I'm proud to be a part of that.

Anyway, this makes me worry about the principle of uncontested deletions. An article, no matter how big or how old, can just plain disappear in 5 days unless you watch it like a hawk? That seems like a power that needs to be used very judiciously to avoid wiping out someone's hard work. At the very least it should be possible to find the history of deletions, since it's very hard to track deletions, or in this case, the REASON for the deletion. So people will do just what I did, re-invent the wheel, which is to no ones benefit. This paragraph is just me thinking out loud on the Wikipedia deletion policy.

Thanks, Spalding 15:58, 2 December 2006 (UTC)

Thank you for voting in my RfA which at 51/20/6 unfortunately did not achieve consensus. In closing the nomination, Essjay remarked that it was one of the better discussed RfAs seen recently and I would like to thank you and all others who chose to vote for making it as such. It was extremely humbling to see the large number of support votes, and the number of oppose votes and comments will help me to become stronger. I hope to run again for adminship soon.

Some calibration advice, please

Can you help me calibrate my response to articles needing improvement?

My specific question is in regards to the article Tribalmedia. This is a stub article about a company, and reads like a trade press release. In my opinion, there is no claim of notability, and my search on Google didn't turn up anything I consider notable (in other words, all I found was different forms of advertising.) So last week I prodded the article, hoping that it would be rewritten to be something besides an advert. Instead an employee (User:Elliotharmon) of the company removed the prod without providing any improvement.

So here is were I need a little calibration. My sentiment is to tag the AfD, following all the steps. But would you mind looking at the article and tell me if I'm going overboard? I'm inclined to take the word of Elliotharmon that he is just trying to present facts, but, the facts point to AfD, in my opinion. So, your advice, YA, would be helpful. Is AfD too bold, or should a few other tags, such as notability be applied.

Thanks again for your help.WVhybrid 23:30, 11 December 2006 (UTC)

Thanks. I will. WVhybrid 03:05, 12 December 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for voting

I appreciate the feedback that I received during the RfA process. Unfortunately, I withdrew my candidacy. However, your participation is appreciated. I have made my New Years Resolution (effective immediately) to attempt to vote on at least 50 WP:XFD/week (on at least 5 different days), to spend 5 hours/week on WP:NPP, to be active in WikiProjects and to change the emphasis of my watchlist from editorial oversight to vandalism prevention. I have replaced several links that I had on my list to some that I think are more highly vandalized (Tiger Woods, Barry Bonds, my congressman Jesse Jackson, Jr., my senator Barrack Obama and Jesse Jackson). My first day under my newly turned leaf was about what I hope a typical day to be. I quickly found a vandal, made a few editorial changes to Donald Trump, voted at WP:CFD and WP:AFD, continued attempted revitalization of Wikipedia:WikiProject_Chicago and proposed a new stub type as a result of WP:NPP patrol. I hope this will broaden my wikipedia experience in a way that makes me a better administrator candidate. I hope to feel more ready to be an admin in another 3000 or so edits.

What do you only watch WWE? If so, don't go around marking wrestlers' articles for deletion when you don't know anything about them.

Upon editing the West Virginia turnpike's entry for the Tamarack, I set up a future page in case the article's length warrants it. The page, Tamarack, Best of West Virginia, redirects to West Virginia Turnpike#Tamarack. While doing a generalised search for the Tamarack, however, I came across the Tamarack (WV) which was recently created, long after the established article at the West Virginia Turnpike.

Could the Tamarack (WV) article be merged into the Tamarack, Best of West Virginia article? Thanks, Seicer (talk) (contribs) 19:54, 12 January 2007 (UTC)


Only one guy upsetting the apple cart now. Don't think he will ever be satified. Maybe if I put video of tape on Youtube of me and Sandy Berger hanging out together in the National Archieves, but not before. --71Demon 21:41, 12 January 2007 (UTC)

He finally realized he was the only one complaining and went back and reversed his edits. --71Demon 01:20, 13 January 2007 (UTC)

Thanks & A question

Thanks for putting the info on my talk page. I'm trying to change the colors to link to my talk page or just be pretty colors. How do I change the colors? --Waterbender kara 01:22, 13 January 2007 (UTC)

I seem step into contrevesy all the time, even when I think things are super obvious. I think it is important to use the correct spelling in an educational tool. Could you take a look at this please. Thanks --71Demon 13:57, 14 January 2007 (UTC)
