== So… ==

So you did not read the dispute, the reason I posted the article under a new name, or give any information as to why these new revisions, references and rewritten explanations were considered blatent advertising. I just wanted some information as to what I could do to add the Sentry Basic article to Wikipedia now that it apparently has been flagged without anytime for consideration.

== Sock puppets ==

Hi DC, just thought I’d let you know that I have been accused of being you by Mark Bellinghaus and his companion Ernest Cunningham. I read the transcript of your sockpuppet case against weareallalone and I am 99% you are correct. Apologies, I’m not signing this post but I just wanted to show some solidarity with your predicament. <small>—Preceding [[Wikipedia:Signatures|unsigned]] comment added by [[Special:Contributions/|]] ([[User talk:|talk]]) 16:48, 13 June 2008 (UTC)</small><!– Template:UnsignedIP –> <!–Autosigned by SineBot–>

== Suasion ==

Hi Carbuncle,

I was wondering why you feel that the term ‘suasion’ does not deserve mention on the [[persuasion]] article. The reason you gave on your reversion of my edit (that [[suasion]] redirects to [[persuasion]]) is exactly the reason I added the term to the article: to justify the redirect. There are plenty of articles that use the term, so I don’t see how a case can be made for saying that it has rare usage, nor would that seem a relevant argument if it did.

[[User:Neelix|Neelix]] ([[User talk:Neelix|talk]]) 21:59, 22 June 2008 (UTC)
:As a word, ‘suasion’ is not commonly used. I see it used as part of the phrase ‘moral suasion’, but very rarely outside of that. On WP, that is the usage in almost every case. Someone searching for ‘suasion’ would be redirected to [[Persuasion]], but it seems unnecessary, even possibly confusing to some readers, to include the word in the article. Perhaps you could place a link to Wiktionary? [[User:Delicious carbuncle|Delicious carbuncle]] ([[User talk:Delicious carbuncle#top|talk]]) 22:16, 22 June 2008 (UTC)

::Hi Carbuncle,

::Just to clarify: was your last comment a suggestion that a link to the Wiktionary article on ‘suasion’ should be added to the [[persuasion]] article? The redirect needs to be justified by including the term somewhere in the article, so I suppose a Wiktionary link would suffice.

::[[User:Neelix|Neelix]] ([[User talk:Neelix|talk]]) 15:55, 23 June 2008 (UTC)
:::I’m not aware of any requirement for the term used as a redirect to be used in the article.

Syesha124, Lovato45, DemiLovato15, Maddy24, and Kristy22 are not sock accounts! Each of the accounts that I mentioned are used by different people that share the same IP address! I should know!

Syesha124 is my cousin, Lovato45 is my brother, DemiLovato15 is my sister, Maddy24 is my other cousin, and Kristy22 is my best friend. She comes over to use my computer sometimes because her computer is currently broken at the moment and she really can’t afford to buy another one right now.

== LASEK ==

Hi there

Are you sure the present acronym for LASEK (Keratectomy) is correct and not Keratomileusis? Although there are more Google results for the former, the latter is used in medical establishments such as the UK’s [[NHS]] (see [[]] for an example.


[[User:Jw|Jw]] ([[User talk:Jw|talk]]) 00:13, 1 July 2008 (UTC)
:Yes, I’m sure. The article’s title is not LASEK, it’s [[Photorefractive keratectomy]]. Keratomileusis seems to be used in the UK, so if you wanted to add it as an additional, ”alternative” definition with the NICE reference, that would be fine by me.

==Fire Pits==

Please refer to the ‘fire pit’ talk page, I explained why I undid your image removal. In short, your first edit was reasonably, I can at least follow your logic enough to not undo it. However, the image provides a visualization of a rather vague idea (a fire pit kit). If you believe that there are tons of them out there and they are relatively similar then you may as well remove the caption altogether. I don’t think mentioning where a particular product is from is ‘spamming,’ it is providing complete information. It is not as if I declared that ‘Frazier Quarry has the best fire pit kits ever made, they are superior in quality and lower in price than all of their competitors. I don’t even make a strong case for fire pit kits in the article, my only intention was to put something out there on fire pits. I happen to have permission to use their image and so I did.

== Shenandoah Valley Bluestone ==

Hi Carbuncle,

sorry, i meant to post only on the SVB page.


== Bluestone ==

Hi Carbuncle,

I guess I’m not following how if there is only one producer of a product, why it can not be mentioned. Let’s say that hypothetically NASA was the only group that made space shuttles and it was a private corporation. If there were a spaceship article, would it not seem odd if NASA was neither linked nor mentioned?

:Did you have a specific article in mind? [[User:Delicious carbuncle|Delicious carbuncle]] ([[User talk:Delicious carbuncle#top|talk]]) 04:57, 16 July 2008 (UTC)o

::I did, I was referring to the inclusion of the sole quarry/retailer of dimension bluestone (Shenandoah Valley Bluestone) being The Frazier Quarry. I understand that a unique stone does not hold the same level of global importance as would space travel, but at the same time, it seems that mentioning the sole provider is more informative than it is anything else. With regard to COI, let’s go with another hypothetical. Let’s say there is a really interesting endangered species that lives specifically one region of the world and there is a city employee charged with the task of creating a Wikipedia page to raise awareness that whereever he is from exists and hopefully generate tourism through information, not advertisement. As a part of that page he includes that his native land is the one place in the world that has ‘X’ species. He then realizes that there is no page for ‘X’ species and decides to create one. In the page of ‘X’ species, would it be inappropriate for him to mention its native land, because in doing so he is indirectly promoting tourism to the place where he has an interest?

:::It clear that you have some connection with the Frazier Quarry and that you are resistant to follow the advice of several editors about your conflict of interest. While not wanting to get dragged into your hypothetical situations, if ‘a city employee’ is ‘charged with the task’ of editing Wikipedia, that clearly is in violation of the [[WP:COI]] guideline, however noble their motivations.

I am attempting to present points on a neutral level, but more importantly I think that my local heritage deserves to be accessed most effectively. Secondly, it is not my intention off undue resistance to editors, I have changed what they have asked and resorted to discussion rather than re-editing to suit my thoughts. I recognize that individuals such as yourself have more experience than I do with regard to Wikipedia and I feel that I have somehow gotten on your bad side. This is because I am creating articles with reference to an area that I know about while attempting to be neutral. The issue at hand here is neutrality, and for some reason it appears to me that you don’t believe that I am attempting to be informational while remaining neutral part of [[WP:COI]] says that even if one was getting paid or had a financial stake, that is not problematic unless it is presented in a non-neutral fashion. My point about NASA or any other unique product is that you do not cross the line of neutrality by citing where its from and an endangered species is a closer parallel because the limestone is literally only from one area and one quarry and if it were shut down, there would be no more (the difference is that there would be the potential for someone to open another).

I won’t write anything more to you, I realize I’m wasting my time, but if what I’m writing is so blatantly biased, you need not take it upon yourself to be the one to come down on it, others surely will.

==Peter Härtling==

I have added the bibliography and awards section from the German wikipedia. I don’t believe this qualifies as a speedy delete any more, if it ever did, but you may still wish to list it at AfD. I should draw your attention to the fact that Peter Härtling passes WP:CREATIVE, I know of at least one independent book that has been written about him and his works. I translated the article from the German wikipedia, so I don’t have any sources, but I can the external links from there – although they all link to German sites. [[User:Rje|Rje]] ([[User talk:Rje|talk]]) 13:32, 21 July 2008 (UTC)
:No need for an AfD, but without the awards, there really didn’t seem to be an assertion of notability. Thanks for adding the additional material. [[User:Delicious carbuncle|Delicious carbuncle]] ([[User talk:Delicious carbuncle#top|talk]]) 13:36, 21 July 2008 (UTC)

==Pierre Laffillé==
You marked this for speedy as nn. True the article in t=place showed almost nothing, but there were interwiki links to the frWP, which should have alerted you to go there, where you would have seen that there was an extensive article. Even without reading any French, there’s a list of prizes and a long list of exhibitions. Do not speedy in such a case. Simply copy the French text over into the article and mark it for translation. I did, and, since I do read French, I will translate it soon when I have a chance. If I didn;t, someone else would..

Apparently you did just the same with an article from the German Wikipedia, above. Please check first if there are interlanguage links, and dont repeat the error. In fact, if its a person from another country, it’s wise to check the appropriate WP even if the links are not given explicitly–often there will be a usable article. This is one ofthe way we build links to the other wikis and enrich our content. . ”'[[User:DGG|DGG]]”’ ([[User talk:DGG|talk]]) 13:57, 22 July 2008 (UTC)
:As you note, neither article had any assertion of notability and I am unfortunately unable to speak either German or French, so it is unproductive for me to check foreign language sites. Perhaps you should be leaving messages for the article creators that they should assert notability, or copy the foreign-langauge text over as you did. Thanks for your note.

::I consider it reckless to delete articles based on material you are unable to read.

:::That isn’t the case here. I nominated the article based on a lack of any assertion of notability, not the existence of text I couldn’t read. You declined the speedy as detailed above. I think that’s how the system is supposed to work. What puzzles me is why you have returned to browbeat me rather than reminding the creators of the articles in question that they should simply include some assertion of notability in articles they create, in order to avoid similar problems in the future.

== Barbara Gluck ==

Hello, <br>
I must say I am quite astonished about the brutality and the severity with which my arcticle [[Barbara Gluck]] was deleted. Some history : I created the page at approx 1 PM my time. After a few minutes, I got a tag from a bot telling that I was infringing some copyrights. I did not deny at all, and immediately I clearly put a note in the arcticle for reference (I had already put the ref of the link in the arcticle). In the discussion page, I said I was a beginner in enWP (not in others), I said I would rephrase/rewrite as soon as possible but I needed time as it was very late for me and, despite the fact that I am quite ‘pround’ of my English level, English is not my mother tongue so I am quite slow to write. Unfortunately, the discussion page is also deleted… Did you take time to read the discussion page before adding your tag ? Did you check frWP to see what I wrote on [[:fr:Barbara Gluck]] in French ? <br>
In short, what can be done to reload the page or at least the discussion page ?<br>

== Food Photography ==
I am an expert on food photography, and have published an magazine article on the subject at The additions I made were my own writing, how can you say it violated copyright? The only thing that could be considered conflict of interest is a link to my website at the end, which is exactly what the author of the article on food styling did at the Food stylist article – put their web link at the end. And regarding the article about Dennis Ray Davis, how is this different from the article WRITTEN BY HIMSELF on Mark Robert Halper, and using his own websites as primary support for the article? Double standards are all I can see here.
:The text you posted was a cut-and-paste of the link you provided above. You may be the author, but the page states ‘Copyright © SOURCE INTERLINK MEDIA All rights reserved’.

== Traceless Biometrics ==

Your reversion of my edits makes no sense at all.

1) The material you have reverted back in doesn’t actually have anything to do with the particular ”technical” concept descriped in the article – the material removed is general material about the legal, social and polical ramifications of biometrics ”in general” and is covered in length in the many articles we have on the matter. It’s pure WP:COATRACK in that article.

2) Your use of tools was rather lazy if you don’t mind me saying – I’ve been around a bit and don’t mind. But a new editor would have seen a) A message telling them they didn’t leave an edit summary – which I did and b) a warning saying they committed vandalism. Vandalism is very specifically defined in policy and does not extent to good faith editors make judgements about what should or should not be included in articles.

This is actually an area I have expertise in and was going to read and clean-up – is it worth me bothering or are you just going to revert all my edits as vandalism without actually reading them? –[[Special:Contributions/|]] ([[User talk:|talk]]) 20:01, 30 July 2008 (UTC)

I am very sorry for not responding earlier but school was starting up and I was getting back into that schedule.

It appears you created a page ([[‎Delicious carbuncle/spam stuff]]) that was supposed to be a user subpage, but accidentally got put into the mainspace. I was just giving you a heads up – I didn’t want to tag it if there was something else going on.

== Image status questions ==

[ This image] appears to be past its expiration date. I think all images from [ User:Mmmovie] are in the same situation with regard to their ‘public domain’ but copyrighted claims, but only some of them are obviously copyright violations, and not of all of those are being used in articles. I don’t think I will ever understand image permissions on Wikipedia. Can you take a look? Thanks.

:The main available solutions for image problems are:

== Would like a response ==

Dear Friend,

Everyone should be able to contribute to Wikipedia.

The problem comes when people ‘skew’ things to suit some agenda.

However, not everyone is a part of that agenda and by issuing ‘COI’ tags, when they are not COIs, can hurt an individual exposed to the public.

It’s great to be incognito and change people’s bios, but I think upon reflection there’s something wrong with being the ‘sole’ source of someone’s bio and if someone adds or deletes, then they have to be accountable to someone ‘in charge’ of the bio. This is not in the spirit of Wikipedia, is it? I’m not entirely certain of that purpose either.

I’m not trying to get anyone worked up or mad, I’m just trying to be honest with you and share my opinions. I respect you and see your a great editor.

If another person purposefully ‘skews’ his point of view by including only negative reviews of the film in question, for instance, how is that fair and democratic in the spirit of Wikipedia?

Why someone is ‘obsessed’ with another person’s biography is puzzling, but again, I’m trying to find answers without causing contempt or animosity among the various editors.

You seem extremely intelligent and I have a great deal of respect for you.

If there’s something I can do to resolve the situation, please let me know.

Warmest regards,

== Jeztheham is NOT a Swamilive sock ==

Hi Delicious carbuncle. I do like to read up on your recent activity, even if I don’t edit pages that you’re involved in. But, I couldn’t help notice that you added [[User:Jeztheham|Jeztheham]] to a subsection involving me on the AIV page (or whatever it’s called). I know it must be very hard for you to take anything I say seriously at this point, but I want you to know that this user has nothing to do with me. I don’t know how to do this myself, but I’m sure that if you checked that user’s IP it would not correspond to the range of IPs I typically use. I wouldn’t even bother bringing this up under any normal circumstances, but you’ve recently tried to get a few users blocked under the assumption that they are socks of mine. I don’t think this is fair to the users in question. If Jeztheham is stalking you, or you perceive him/her to be doing so, then I’m sorry you have to go through that. But, to use the ‘Swamilive sockpuppet’ blanket excuse to get rid of someone completely random seems to be a bit of a cop-out to me. And, it’s definitely not fair to the actual user. If it would satisfy you, then request a checkuser on him or something. You will find that Jeztheham is likely nowhere near me. I’m mainly concerned about how you might use the Swamilive name in a generalized way to get editors you disagree with blocked. It’s not at all fair to use my name as a means to relieve yourself of ANY editor. I might be your most prominent vandal, but that doesn’t mean I’m your only one. Frankly, you have a history of making some pretty controversial and in-your-face edits and reverts. It wouldn’t surprise me if other people decided to get on your case about it. You DO ask for it sometimes. [[User:PalmofYourhand|PalmofYourhand]] ([[User talk:PalmofYourhand|talk]]) 23:53, 30 September 2008 (UTC)
:I’m not trying to get anyone blocked unfairly, but when they show up in your checkuser results or start wikistalking me, you can see why I might assume that ”they” are ”you”? Anyway, I’ve passed along your message. Next time, just let the blocking admin know directly. [[User:Delicious carbuncle|Delicious carbuncle]] ([[User talk:Delicious carbuncle#top|talk]]) 01:37, 1 October 2008 (UTC)

== For real ==

DelCarb…I am really curious why you believe blocking sock after sock after sock after sock after sock will get me off Wikipedia. I’ve obviously found ways around the blocking measures, as we’ve discussed countless times before. Wikipedia is one of the top ten visited sites on the Internet. You can’t possibly expect to keep it free of vandalism. Even if all the admins and bots combined forces, they’d still be far overwhelmed with vandals. I understand your efforts to keep the community clean, I really do. But, Wikipedia was doomed from the moment Jimbo Wales thought of it. The nature of the site makes it uncontrollable. You can block my sockpuppets until the cows come home, but it won’t make a difference. ”’Even if I give up”’ at some point, you’ve got hundreds of thousands, if not millions of other vandals to take care of. I say, stop wasting your time with ”’me”’ specifically, because even if you get rid of me and all my socks, Wikipedia will continue to be a suburban underpass. Repaint it all you want, but the next morning you’ll find that it’s been tagged anew. Let me have my one account (which I will not use as a vandal account), and you’ll be rid of me. I’m only asking for one account that you don’t interfere with. Please understand that I’m taking the realist perspective when I write this. If we work together, there will be far less grief for both of us. I, for one, would like to see that. [[User:FrameSplit|FrameSplit]] ([[User talk:FrameSplit|talk]]) 02:52, 1 October 2008 (UTC)
:One last time: request an unblock on the account of your choosing. Or create an account, stop trolling me, follow the rules, and no one will notice or care. It’s really up to you how this plays out. [[User:Delicious carbuncle|Delicious carbuncle]] ([[User talk:Delicious carbuncle#top|talk]]) 03:13, 1 October 2008 (UTC)
::LOL. Yes, Jimbo thought of it. Not of the concept of a wiki in general, but of Wikipedia in general. LOL [[User:FrameSplit|FrameSplit]] ([[User talk:FrameSplit|talk]]) 03:17, 1 October 2008 (UTC)
:::[ ”To be clear, the idea of an open source, collaborative encyclopedia, open to contribution by ordinary people, was entirely Jimmy’s, not mine, and the funding was entirely by Bomis. I was merely a grateful employee; I thought I was very lucky to have a job like that land in my lap. Of course, other people had had the idea; but it was Jimmy’s fantastic foresight actually to invest in it. For this the world owes him a considerable debt. The actual development of this encyclopedia was the task he gave me to work on.”]
