VfD pollution[edit]

Ril enlisted Persecution by Muslims for VfD again, just 24 hours after the article withstood the first VfD. You might be interested to watch it. [1] --Germen (Talk | Contribs Netherlands flag small.svg) 10:33, 30 July 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Thanks for participating in the patrolling of mesothelioma. I inserted a warning for linkspammers, but they seem undeterred. JFW | T@lk 14:00, 31 July 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]

You might be interested to have a look. Regards --Pgreenfinch 15:45, 3 September 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]

John Titor[edit]

What can I say, you are too quick on the draw. By the way, have you been to Wikipedia:Requests for adminship recently? It looks like someone may be promoted against their will.  ;-) Hall Monitor 22:00, 29 September 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Ryan Anderson[edit]

There are at least two people that bear this name. One is a musician and the other is a traitor. How does Wikipedia keep information on both people distinct?

P.S. Thanks for the warm greeting. It is greatly appreciated (Folajimi 04:24, 23 December 2005 (UTC))Reply[reply]

  • How about moving information on the traitor to Ryan G. Anderson? Would that be appropriate? News articles seem to use that name as well. (Folajimi 05:14, 23 December 2005 (UTC))Reply[reply]

The 'William Ryan' Debacle[edit]

Today, I stumbled onto the disaster known as William Ryan. Please examine my work on that page (including the political references) and, if you would, please provide feedback. (Folajimi 23:39, 23 December 2005 (UTC))Reply[reply]

How does one handle cases where Will, Bill, Willy or Billy is used in place of William? (Folajimi 03:00, 24 December 2005 (UTC))Reply[reply]

Adam Forkner[edit]

  • The article on Adam Forkner has recently been revised. Do the changes justify removal of the pesky 'music-importance' tag? (Folajimi 04:51, 24 December 2005 (UTC))Reply[reply]
  • Today, I spent some time examining the external link I included for this article. I discovered that the site contains pages that I am concerned may induce photosensitive seizures.
Seeing that the external link is the primary source of credible information for the article, what course of action would be appropriate to address the aforementioned concern? I have included a warning but was wondering if that is proper. (Folajimi 00:49, 25 December 2005 (UTC))Reply[reply]
A week ago, you decided that the article on this subject is no longer a stub. I have since discovered that there was redundant information padding, and cleaned up the article. I just wanted to find out if the decision still holds. Folajimi(talk)
In your initial reply you said that "...The musicians of Yume Bitsu should surpass these requirements..." Could you please clarify what you meant?
Also, is there an easier way to create the signature I currently use? Below is the code used for the signature:
[[~~~]]<sup>[[User talk:Folajimi|(talk)]]</sup>
How can I include the timestamp after the superscript text? Under 'My Preferences', the box next to "Raw signature (no auto link; don't use templates or external links in this)" is already checked. Is there anything else I need to do? Folajimi(talk)

Missing Submission[edit]

Without much explanation, my John Fitz-Gerald submission was summarily deleted by a Trigger-Happy Deletionist. Could you please explain what I missed? (Folajimi 04:03, 25 December 2005 (UTC))Reply[reply]

As a follow-on (and possibly relevant) question, could you clarify why Randall Nieman was taken down by a user/deletionist only to be restored (and enhanced) by someone else? Also, is A7 shorthand notation for the seventh clause under the 'Articles' section on the Wikipedia:Criteria for speedy deletion page?(Folajimi 02:16, 26 December 2005 (UTC))Reply[reply]

Disambiguation Help[edit]

I have another disambiguation question. There are AT LEAST two noteworthy bands named South. Fortunately, one of the bands is already listed in Wikipedia. I say fortunately because two of these bands are separated by the Atlantic Ocean. The already listed outfit is from the United Kingdom, while the other trio is from the United States. How do I proceed with such an issue? Would South (U.S. band) suffice?

It should be noted that the U.S. outfit once said in an interview that they had a tiff with another U.S. band that used the same moniker (the possible difference was that one band was on the Atlantic Coast while the other was on the Pacific Coast.) Assuming that this third trio is deemed "noteworthy", how would I go about addressing the disambiguation?

I understand that there is such an issue as Double Disambiguation which might be useful for the U.S. band. Patrick Phelan can be a member of this U.S band who has also collaborated with people from diverse groups including Sparklehorse and Gwar. The name may also be attributed to another (musician???) who was responsible for the soundtrack to Zool, a British computer game.

With all that said, how does one address a South vs. South (vs. South???) debacle?


(Folajimi 03:29, 26 December 2005 (UTC))Reply[reply]

I have submitted a trio of stubs on Chris Bennett. Please let me know what you think about the 'Photography' issue. Thanks. Folajimi(talk).(efforts)

South (U.S. band) is now a stub. As always, please let me know what you think. I shall await your feedback before proceeding with the disambiguation process. Folajimi(talk).(efforts)
Could you please respond to my e-mail? As always, I look forward to your feedback on this matter. Folajimi(talk)

Follow-on questions[edit]

Thanks for the timely reply on the South disambiguation issue. Now that I think of it, would it be appropriate to have South (band) become a disambiguation page, with South (U.K. Band) and South (U.S. band) as listings on that page? Also, is my Patrick Phelan analysis correct? Could offer some suggestions on how to approach that issue (i.e. multiple musicians that have the same name/moniker)?

While writing this, I discovered that there are several other people that might justify the need for a Patrick Phelan page. One possible candidate was a decorated veteran of the historic Fenian raids. Another candidate has a rags to riches story and a legacy in the state of Utah. In fact, this particular candidate has a fund named after him known as the Phelan Fund that supports orphans at the historic Kearns-St. Ann Orphanage, which was created from the fortunes of Thomas Kearns, a United States senator.

Also, there is another Phelan Fund, in honor of Mount St. Mary's University basketball coach James J. Phelan. This Phelan happens to be a certifiable basketball legend that was with the institution for about five decades. In fact MSNBC, Sports Illustrated and other members of the press from coast to coast have offered many accolades for this coach. There is even a Jim Phelan National Coach of the Year Award, which has been awarded to Bobby Lutz and Tubby Smith.

I could keep going, but hopefully you get the idea. Does Wikipedia have procedures for dealing with this Pandora's box?

P.S. Could you also speak to the follow-on questions I asked about the deletion/restoration of the Randall Nieman article? More importantly, could you provide some analysis on the difference between Randall Nieman, John Fitz-Gerald and M.O.T.O? (Folajimi 18:21, 26 December 2005 (UTC))Reply[reply]

Dan Burton[edit]

I have a question about Dan Burton. The current article is about the well-known U.S. congressman. However, there is a little known recording engineer and member of two respectable indie rock outfits that would have no problems meeting the WP:Music requirements. How shall I tackle this disambiguation effort? (Folajimi 02:44, 28 December 2005 (UTC))Reply[reply]

I am about to begin work on Dan Burton. In the meantime, could you please move the Me'Shell NdegéOcello article to the page with this spelling? I cannot make the move myself because the page is already being used as a redirect. I shall commit to moving any necessary links that currently point to the existing page. (Folajimi 19:11, 28 December 2005 (UTC))Reply[reply]
More than a week has passed since the posting of the notice on the relocation of Me'Shell NdegéOcello. Can the absence of feedback on the move be construed as acceptance of the move? Folajimi{talk)
When moving the above article, could you kindly remove the William Ryan (politician) wiki as well? It makes a rather pointless redirect to William Ryan. Folajimi 15:18, 10 January 2006 (UTC){talk)Reply[reply]

During the migration effort, I discovered that a Wikipedia Admin's user page links to the article. I decided to leave a note on the admin's talk page, advising the admin to apply the update. I have no idea what protocol is to be observed when interacting with Wikipedia admins. Did I observe proper etiquette, or did I commit a faux pas?
How much time should be allowed for comments on the Me'Shell NdegéOcello move before the page is actually moved? (Folajimi 20:04, 28 December 2005 (UTC))Reply[reply]
There is an issue that just came up that I would like to discuss with you privately. Can I reach you via email? (Folajimi 20:57, 28 December 2005 (UTC))Reply[reply]

Possible Technical Limitation[edit]

I was trying to create a page for Red, Hot + Riot. Is there a way to make a viable link that includes the '+' symbol, or is it just a "technical limitation" of Wikipedia? (Folajimi 05:38, 28 December 2005 (UTC))Reply[reply]

Press Kits & Copyright Issues[edit]

Are celebrity images included in "press kits" or "press alcoves" available for use in Wikipedia articles without prior consent? If not, what is the procedure for including such images with articles? Are there easier, legit alternatives to including images with articles?

P.S. How do you manage to include the talk link with your signature? (Folajimi 02:51, 29 December 2005 (UTC))Reply[reply]

Possible Mind Games[edit]

I have Early Day Miners on my watchlist. However, it sometimes goes missing. Is this normal, or am I doing something wrong?

Is there a limit to the number of articles submitted by a user on a daily basis? Do deleted articles count against me? If so, in what fashion?

P.S. How can I have the time of the post appended to the modified signature? Folajimi(talk)

Bright Problem[edit]

I have information on a band called Bright. Given the information on the current page, could you please recommend how I should go about the disambiguation effort? Folajimi 02:45, 30 December 2005 (UTC)(talk)

Aggressive Editor[edit]

While creating a stub for Godless American March on Washinton, something bizarre happened. When I was about done, I saved the page (to preserve the work I had done) just in case I got logged out. I noticed that I forgot to append 'http://' to a URL and went about editing the page to fix it.

As I was about to save the page, I was informed that I had an "Edit Conflict" going on. I later discovered that a user had opened the page that I had barely finished! What is up with that? Any ideas for such aggressive behaviour?

Really ticked off... Folajimi 05:13, 30 December 2005 (UTC)(talk)

I had barely posted information on Bryan Hoffa when someone came in and slapped a nasty header on the page. This happened within all of five minutes! What is that about? If there is a concern, should it not be placed on the talk page first? Miffed, again... Folajimi(talk)

Stub status[edit]

Does this article on Robert Alexander (general) still qualify as a stub? If so, how?

Then there is an article duplication issue I discovered. Martin moser, Nathaniel Moser and Nathaniel Moser-Sachs share pretty much the same content. It seems a redirect would be more appropriate here. What do you think?

Finally, I have spent some time tooling around with the signature format but have yet to successfully replicate the impressive format you use. How can I keep the timestamp portion from being a hyperlink? Folajimi 17:09, 31 December 2005 (UTC))(talk)

Image Submissions[edit]

For images used at Chris Bennett, I found them either by scouring the web, or just at the subject's website. Could you please let me know if they are OK to use, or do I need to remove them?

P.S. I just started on Patrick Phelan. There is an image I found at the provided link in the stub. Could you please verify that image as well? Also, if you have any suggestions on the content, please let me know.. Folajimi(talk)

Thanks for the timely feedback (as always); it is greatly appreciated. So, which images in particular are you concerned about? Shall I remove them until approval is obtained from the subjects? Folajimi(talk)
How can I delete an image that was used in one of the articles of concern? Based on what the rules say, it seems that I would be better off safe than sorry...
As for the Bryan Hoffa article, I will look into providing credible sources for the references section.
Finally, about the signatures. I have tried out different signatures with raw signatures enabled and disabled. As for ~~~~, it produces Folajimi 20:41, 4 January 2006 (UTC)

Xenopol Stub.[edit]

I have created an article on Alexandru Dimitrie Xenopol. However, I discovered that another article already exists on here. What do I do?

P.S. If you could also respond to the email, I would really appreciate it. Folajimi 18:00, 5 January 2006 (UTC)(talk)Reply[reply]

Proposed Georgia Move[edit]

As a past participant in the discussion on how to handle the Georgia pages, I thought you might be interested to know that there's a new attempt to reach consensus on the matter being addressed at Talk:Georgia (country)#Requested_Move_-_July_2006. Please come by and share your thoughts to help form a consensus. --Vengeful Cynic 03:29, 8 July 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

pestering about some old edit![edit]

okay, i'm going to start with an apology - this is about an edit you made 4 (!!) years ago, on the nicotine page. i looked around (probably not hard enough) for a source that mentions that its cigarette smoke that causes the MAO inhibition, but i couldn't find one. i know i care about the most useless details - i'm sorry for bothering you about them. but where is this information that nicotine isn't a MAOI, but other things in cigarette smoke causes that effect, from?
