BKSP[edit]

Hi, I saw you marked [1] as ambigious. Why? --Soman 10:27, 12 March 2007 (UTC)

It actually wasn't that link I was concerned about: it was the link to SDAP, which is a disambig. to four different SDAPs. My initial edit probably made that clearer, but I switched the order of the superscript and the disambig tag because I thought it looked better. I'll go change the order back to clarify the situation. --zenohockey 17:04, 12 March 2007 (UTC)
Ok, no problem. --Soman 17:27, 12 March 2007 (UTC)

Help populate novel list?[edit]

I'm soliciting assistance in populating the page List of novels by point of view. Would you consider pitching in? Thank you! --TheEditrix2 15:46, 22 March 2007 (UTC)

When I get the chance, sure, I'll help. (As an aside, this looks like the sort of article that needs strict length guidelines right off the bat [e.g., 10 highly recognizable novels per POV], lest people add their favorite novels willy-nilly, like a "Quotes" section in a Simpsons episode article...) --zenohockey 22:21, 24 March 2007 (UTC)

Bush v. Gore[edit]

I provided some additional information and a link that may interest you in response to your question at the reference desk. Regards, Newyorkbrad 14:05, 31 March 2007 (UTC)

Good catch[edit]

Thanks for fixing these.[2][3] Postdlf 21:26, 13 April 2007 (UTC)

Hitler[edit]

Should I add full information for all the cites for that book, or just the first one? That appears to be the model set with Joseph Goebbels. --Lenin and McCarthy | (Complain here) 03:27, 17 April 2007 (UTC)

I think having the information in the first cite suffices. One of the footnotes is an "op cit." with just the author's name; that would work too. --zenohockey 04:05, 17 April 2007 (UTC)

South Africa[edit]

Why did you do this? Picaroon (Talk) 21:09, 16 May 2007 (UTC)

Because the first item in that list did not display with the namespace, I figured the WikiProject SA one shouldn't either. There's no reason for one to display it and the other not to. --zenohockey 23:22, 16 May 2007 (UTC)
Probably because I was looking at the first item in that list, which was in fact South America, while typing... As it went a week without anyone noticing, hopefully it didn't confuse anyone. --zenohockey 23:26, 16 May 2007 (UTC)

Covais IPA[edit]

For [z] or [s], it's really dependent on the person. I normally lenghthen to a [z] after diphthongs, but I sometimes use [s]. It doesn't really matter which is used considering that they're allophones. Geoking66 03:27, 20 May 2007 (UTC)

McReynolds copyediting[edit]

Thank you for the copyediting on the McReynolds article; I know how annoying those little edits can be. For what it is worth, I was always told that in citations, "pp" stood for "printed page" or "printed pages", to distinguish from numbering of pages in manuscripts or other works. In any case, thank you. Magidin 15:27, 23 May 2007 (UTC)

Huh. The American Heritage Dictionary says it's "pages", so I'm definitely not making it up... But anyway, you're welcome. I live for those little edits. :) --zenohockey 17:51, 23 May 2007 (UTC)
I know you're not making it up. I checked myself, and you were right; now I know better. In fact, I went through and made the change also in the few that you missed. Magidin 18:18, 23 May 2007 (UTC)

Re: Image:EricHarris-DylanKlebold.jpg[edit]

I think the source of this image can just go on the image page. If you want to respond, please do so on my talk page. -- SilvaStorm

Regarding edits to Looking glass self[edit]

Thank you for contributing to Wikipedia, Zenohockey! However, your edit here was reverted by an automated bot that attempts to remove spam from Wikipedia.

Orphaned non-free image (Image:M 685833 200.jpg)[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:M 685833 200.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 05:04, 29 June 2007 (UTC)

The article it used to be in was deleted. (I know you won't read this, bot; just so I know this message has been assiduously glanced at). --zenohockey 05:10, 29 June 2007 (UTC)

DC Meetup notice[edit]

Greetings. There is going to be a Washington DC Wikipedia meetup on next Saturday, July 21st at 5pm in DC. Since you are listed in Category:Wikipedians_in_Maryland, I thought I'd invite you to come. I'm sorry about the short notice for the meeting. Hopefully we'll do somewhat better in that regard next time. If you can't come but want to make sure that you are informed of future meetings be sure to list yourself under "but let me know about future events", and if you don't want to get any future direct notices \(like this one\), you can list yourself under "I'm not interested in attending any others either" on the DC meetup page.--Gmaxwell 00:26, 15 July 2007 (UTC)

Addressed. --zenohockey 04:55, 15 July 2007 (UTC)

List_of_songs_about_masturbation is in it's 5th AfD[edit]

List_of_songs_about_masturbation is up for it's fifth AfD. You participated in an earlier one. If you wish to participate again, please go to Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/List_of_songs_about_masturbation_(5th_nomination) Lentower 03:20, 20 July 2007 (UTC)

(Rolls eyes (not at Lentower).) Thanks. --zenohockey 05:40, 20 July 2007 (UTC)

"Library websites"[edit]

LibraryThing doesn't take data from library *websites*. Websites are built in HTML. We grab stuff from library databases available by Z39.50. It's different. It's like saying that AIM and outlook are websites. Yes, they're part of the INTERNET, but they're not "websites." 24.198.80.98 00:13, 5 September 2007 (UTC)

Point taken. I think I cringed when I saw the terribly nonspecific word "sources." Is this satisfactory? --zenohockey 00:45, 5 September 2007 (UTC)

en dash change[edit]

Hi, thanks for clean-up at MOSNUM. Brings up a question I've had for some time: is there any practical difference between using the HTML code for en dashes (if that's what it is, with the &...) and the plain old en dash symbol on my keyboard (–). Seems like a lot of trouble to key in all of those characters and gum up the edit box (esp. for newbies) unless there's a clear advantage. Tony 02:17, 5 September 2007 (UTC)

You have an en-dash on your keyboard? I don't think I've ever seen a keyboard with one. Re your question, I'm no expert on HTML/Unicode issues, but I've never heard a complaint—and seeing as how wikEd (which I use) turns &...s into the actual character with one mouse click, there would be some if it were a problem. --zenohockey 06:18, 6 September 2007 (UTC)

Dan Savage[edit]

Hey. In one of your Sept 6 edits of the Dan Savage article, you trashed a sentence. Go to the article and find the sentence that includes the string "Tim Keck", in the first section (entitled "Savage Love"). I'd just revert that change of yours, to restore grammaticality, but you obviously had something useful to contribute, so I'll let you figure out how you want to write that. --216.113.208.132 18:22, 11 September 2007 (UTC) (actually a not-logged-in JHolman)

Fixed. Thanks for catching that. --zenohockey 04:23, 12 September 2007 (UTC)

Columbine[edit]

Just wanted to say that your clean-up on the page looks good. I've had converting the Block references on my long list of things to do, but just could never get my head around doing it. Thanks for doing that!! Wildhartlivie 02:18, 6 October 2007 (UTC)

You're welcome. I used User:cacycle/wikEd for the Block stuff, so it wasn't too taxing. --zenohockey 02:30, 6 October 2007 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:Hounddog poster.JPG)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Hounddog poster.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.

ISBN[edit]

Could you explain what you had in mind here? I'm still not sure what the issue is, and the text you added to the article isn't clear. Was there actually a 10-digit SBN code? If so, it would help if you have a reference for it. The fact that a single publisher believed he could correctly apply a 10-digit code to books doesn't say much beyond the practices of that particular publisher, who could have been mistaken. 22:04, 20 November 2007 (UTC)

Hello. This is a courtesy notice that I have nominated for deletion an article you have created or edited, 2007 De Anza baseball players rape case. The deletion discussion may be found here. Thanks, Wikidemo (talk) 11:25, 12 December 2007 (UTC)

Removal of category from your userpage[edit]

Hi. In enacting consensus from User categories for discussion, I have removed the category Category:Wikipedians interested in books from your userpage. It was determined in that deletion debate that this category should be depopulated of individuals, but kept as a parent category. If you wish to display a category reflecting your interest in books, please consider one of the specific sub-categories under its umbrella. Thanks, and please excuse the necessary editing of your user page! ----Moonriddengirl (talk) 16:07, 23 February 2008 (UTC)

Fix for broken ISBNs[edit]

For the broken ISBN redirection script, Franamax (talk · contribs) suggested changing "isbn=" to "Special:Booksources" in the script, and then reloading. It worked for me, so I thought I'd pass it along. — Bellhalla (talk) 03:19, 11 March 2008 (UTC)

Harris and Klebold[edit]

I've been through SO many pages of evidence and interviews, and I have never found a reason for the date change anywhere. I think the absence of the reason is the source of so much speculation about their motives and beliefs, including that incessant Hitler's birthday rumor. It would be great if you found something, but I doubt it's out there. Cheers. Wildhartlivie (talk) 04:34, 1 June 2008 (UTC)

Interesting...I'll keep an eye out. In the meantime, I've removed the apparently baseless speculation in that sentence. --zenohockey (talk) 04:54, 1 June 2008 (UTC)

Traumatic Masturbatory Syndrome[edit]

I'd appreciate your thoughts at Talk:Masturbation#Healthy_Strokes, since you were involved in editing the old Traumatic Masturbatory Syndrome article. The question is whether to remove the external link to http://www.healthystrokes.com, and/or the material on TMS at Masturbation#Problems for males. I personally have no strong feelings either way.

Em dashes (Deconstructivism): HTML entity vs. Unicode[edit]

Fair enough - I just remember the pedants at FAC insisted we put them in like that during the process, although granted that was a few years ago and only the most <insert adjective of your choice> person bothers keeping abreast of the MOS. Regards --Joopercoopers (talk) 16:09, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

Ha. Figures, I guess... --zenohockey (talk) 20:00, 6 September 2008 (UTC)
Ok then - but if we end up at FAR because of the dashes - you're fixing them back :-) --Joopercoopers (talk) 22:47, 9 September 2008 (UTC)


Web site[edit]

In Dow Jones/WSJ stylebook it's two words. The "Web" is capitalized as a proper name. So is the "Internet." I suppose there are other styles. Dunno 'bout AP, Chicago, NYT etc......Probably the Germans like the single-word version............
I messed with article "On Photography" quite a bit just now.

Realtime v real-time transcription[edit]

Ho there! You made a change back in January, 2007 moving real-time transcription to realtime transcription with a note saying that it was "apparently the standard." While I have seen others use the spelling too, it is not grammatically correct. Do you have any source for the rationale of this non-standard spelling? I'm trying to standardize something else and perplexed. Thx. Lexlex (talk) 22:59, 17 June 2009 (UTC)

As a testament to this compound's ambiguity, behold: [5] vs. [6]. Two books, same author, same publisher, same year—no agreement. But no, I have no source. OED, American Heritage and M-W all back you: none even includes the one-word version. Ghits and Google Books hits favor hyphenation by around 3:1. In practice there are reputable authorities on both sides (uscourts.gov and West use one word; IBM and MSDN use two; Pearson uses both), but more (and the dictionaries) on the side of hyphenation. So if you want to move it back, that'd probably be best. --zenohockey (talk) 09:09, 18 June 2009 (UTC)

Volunteer opportunity in Bethesda, Thursday, July 16[edit]

The Wikimedia Foundation will be conducting an all-day Academy at the National Institutes of Health, in Bethesda, Maryland, on Thursday, July 16. The team that will be teaching at the Academy, a mix of paid staff and volunteers, is looking for four more volunteers to be teaching assistants, providing one-to-one assistance in workshops whenever a workshop participant has a problem following the instructional directions. (We currently have two editors signed up as teaching assistants, and are looking for a total of six.)

The NIH editing workshops are only for two hours, but volunteers are asked to meet the Wikimedia Foundation team at the hotel in Bethesda at about 7:15 a.m. (time to be finalized shortly) and to stay for the entire day, which ends at 4:30 p.m. Lunch will be provided. (The full schedule can be found here.)

The team is not necessarily looking for expert editors (though they are welcome), just people who can help novices who might get stuck when trying to do some basic things. If you've been an editor for at least 3 months, and have done at least 500 edits, you probably qualify.

If you're interested, please send John Broughton an email. If you might be interested, but would like further information, please post a note on his user talk page, so that he can respond there, and others can see what was asked.

The article Here We Go Magic has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Fails WP:BAND

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

You are now a Reviewer[edit]

Redaktor Wikipedia 600px.png

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, is currently undergoing a two-month trial scheduled to end 15 August 2010.

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under pending changes. Pending changes is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial. The list of articles with pending changes awaiting review is located at Special:OldReviewedPages.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles (talk) 18:29, 17 June 2010 (UTC)

An exciting month of wiki events![edit]

Hello there,

I am pleased to say that April will be a very exciting month for Wikipedia in Washington, DC. We have a lot of different events coming up, so you will have a lot to choose from.

First, a reminder that our second annual Women in the Arts Edit-a-Thon will take place on Sunday, March 30 at the National Museum of Women in the Arts.

Coming up in April, we have our first-ever Open Government WikiHack with the Sunlight Foundation on April 5–6! We are working together to use open government data to improve the Wikimedia projects, and we would love your help. All are welcome, regardless of coding or editing experience. We will also be having a happy hour the day before, with refreshments courtesy of the Sunlight Foundation.

On Friday, April 11 we are having our first edit-a-thon ever with the Library of Congress. The Africa Collection Edit-a-Thon will focus on the Library's African and Middle East Reading Room. It'll be early in the morning, but it's especially worth it if you're interested in improving Wikipedia's coverage of African topics.

The following day, we are having our second annual Wiki Loves Capitol Hill training. We will discuss policy issues relevant to Wikimedia and plan for our day of outreach to Congressional staffers that will take place during the following week.

There are other meetups in the works, so be sure to check our meetup page with the latest. I hope to see you at some of these events!

All the best,
James Hare

Wikimedia DC invites revolutionaries, free thinkers, and other sundry editors to a DC WikiSalon[edit]

The WikiSalon is a special meetup usually held during the first and third full weeks of every month, from 7 PM to 9 PM. It's an informal gathering of Wikimedia enthusiasts, who come together to discuss Wikimedia wikis and collaboratively edit. There's no set agenda, and guests are welcome to recommend articles for the group to edit or edit on their own.

If you're coming by Metro, the closest station is Dupont Circle (on the Red Line). If you're driving, a lot of parking opens up downtown after 6:30 PM, so finding a parking space (even a free one) should be easy. Once you've found the building, go to Cove on the second floor. We will be in the conference room.

When: Wednesday, September 17, 2014 at 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM

Where: The Cove, Dupont Circle, 1730 Connecticut Avenue NW, 2nd floor, 20009, DC
