LEGO CreatorEdit

In 2008 you added an unsourced section to the LEGO Creator video game article concerning the ability for users to upload third-party models into LEGO Creator. Do you recall which sources gave you that information? --Nick2253 (talk) 07:53, 17 January 2012 (UTC)

I had added it to the external links and forgot to add cited source tag. The website is now 404 - archive.org has it still though. http://web.archive.org/web/20071009120250/http://www.comlink.de/cl-hh/f.moeller/creator%20collection.html Lot's of fun stuff for the old program! The site also has a manual and most of the zips are archived as well.... However after re-visiting I really don't see how LDraw and "other modeling software" have anything to do with it. Feel free to remove or consolidate. Gaming4JC (talk) 23:53, 25 January 2012 (UTC)

Ron Paul Page -- newsletter controversyEdit

Thank you for your contributions on Ron Paul. However, the edit you made, adding a point about whether James Powell may have written one or more articles in the Ron Paul newsletter, has been discussed extensively on the Talk page, and there is a clear consensus to not include it, for reasons spelled out at great length there. I reverted.

Please join in the Talk page before making edits to such a controversial section of a semi-protected page. Thank you! Msalt (talk) 06:04, 8 February 2012 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that you've added some links pointing to disambiguation pages. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

January 2015Edit

  Please do not add or change content without citing a reliable source. Please review the guidelines at Wikipedia:Citing sources and take this opportunity to add references to the article. Thank you. –Roscelese (talkcontribs) 02:26, 7 January 2015 (UTC)
More cited sources added. Section needed to provide. WP:NPOV. Thank you. Gaming4JC (talk) 02:27, 7 January 2015 (UTC)

These sources don't support the text you added and/or are inadmissibly poor. It's going to be difficult to even source a paragraph on "pro-abortion violence" because it simply is not a phenomenon, while anti-abortion violence is widespread. Even if you could come up with the sources, you'd never be able to observe due weight and neutrality; the whole reason the three incidents you cite (Pouillon's murder, which we know was not politically motivated; Miller-Young's taking the protester's sign; and Theodore Shulman's threats) get so hyped up by anti-abortion bloggers is because there's literally nothing else to point to, while scholars writing about anti-abortion violence are, pardon the pun, spoiled for choice, when you look at the number of high-profile murders, assaults, hundreds of bombings, presence of several on the FBI Most Wanted, etc. –Roscelese (talkcontribs) 06:32, 7 January 2015 (UTC)

I can keep adding sources. Just because it doesn't happen as often doesn't mean it doesn't happen and isn't noteworthy. Violence on either side is not the right way to go. Information is for historical purposes and academic use. Gaming4JC (talk) 21:38, 7 January 2015 (UTC)

You continue adding extremely poor sources in order to claim that minor isolated incidents are a phenomenon. Please read WP:RS and WP:WEIGHT and do not add this material back. –Roscelese (talkcontribs) 00:33, 8 January 2015 (UTC)

  Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. You appear to be engaged in an edit war with one or more editors according to your reverts at Abortion debate. Although repeatedly reverting or undoing another editor's contributions may seem necessary to protect your preferred version of a page, on Wikipedia this is usually seen as obstructing the normal editing process, and often creates animosity between editors. Instead of edit warring, please discuss the situation with the editor(s) involved and try to reach a consensus on the talk page.

If editors continue to revert to their preferred version they are likely to be blocked from editing. This isn't done to punish an editor, but to prevent the disruption caused by edit warring. In particular, editors should be aware of the three-revert rule, which says that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. While edit warring on Wikipedia is not acceptable in any amount, breaking the three-revert rule is very likely to lead to a block. Thank you. Binksternet (talk) 00:47, 8 January 2015 (UTC)

I fully respect your oppinion and agree it should be on Talk:Abortion_debate. I did not intend on any edit war in my attempt to find cited sources. According to WP:Notability many of the ones listed should meet Wikipedia:Reliable sources standards. (Huffingtonpost, MSNBC, Fox, etc.) There should be more consesus and the article cleaned up. I notice some stub tags from 2009. Gaming4JC (talk) 01:16, 8 January 2015 (UTC)

Stop reverting my editsEdit

You need to stop reverting my edits to the Crime in the United States article, and more importantly you need not refer to them as "vandalism" at any time in tne future. It is a veritable fact that crime in the United States was present before colonization. The White man did not teach the Red man how to kill people and mutilate their bodies, and steal, and rape. They were doing it long before he arrived.

I am going to correct your deleterious actions to the Crime in the United States article, and I suggest that you refrain from touching it afterwards.

http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crow_Creek_massacre

Be sure to cite your sources, there's been a more than usual amount of vandalism tonight from unregistered users; prehistoric times sounded much similar to the gag of including barrack obama in Marvel characters list. Thanks. - Gaming4JC (talk) 03:05, 12 January 2015 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for January 28Edit

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help.

Regarding edits to Anthony Johnson colonistEdit

I'm inquiring about the tag you've placed in the section titled "Significance of Casor Suit". All three sources are published by either scholarly journals or university presses and are the strongest examples of sources as defined by WP:reliable. Two of the citations specifically label the pages the information can be found. So I don't understand your addition of the tag and was hoping you'd explain what it is you're concerned about.Scoobydunk (talk) 23:49, 20 February 2015 (UTC)

Several of the sources were not properly named or linked to. I was unable to find "Klein, 43-44.", "Breen1980, p. 8.", etc. If you could please use the full names of these books and/or link to JSTOR or similar it would be helpful to complete these sources. - Gaming4JC (talk) 02:20, 26 February 2015 (UTC)

I don't know much about formatting references, but both of those references are properly sourced in the "references" and "sources" section. Breen's book is "Myne Owne Ground" and Herbert Klein's full citation can be found under sources. The information is there so if you want it to be streamlined or formatted differently you don't have to look far for the info. It's all at the bottom of the pageScoobydunk (talk) 03:57, 26 February 2015 (UTC)

Nomination of Lighthouse Trails Publishing for deletionEdit

 

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Lighthouse Trails Publishing is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Lighthouse Trails Publishing until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. Flat Out let's discuss it 05:41, 2 March 2015 (UTC)

VPN ExemptionEdit

 
This blocked user's unblock request has been reviewed by an administrator, who declined the request. Other administrators may also review this block, but should not override the decision without good reason (see the blocking policy). Do not remove this unblock review while you are blocked.

Gaming4JC (block logactive blocksglobal blocksautoblockscontribsdeleted contribscreation logchange block settingsunblockfilter log)


Request reason:

Requesting an IP address block exemption, because my commercial VPN provider is being blocked. Editing from 108.61.0.0/16 has been blocked (disabled) by Elockid, and Editing from 104.200.151.0/24 has been blocked (disabled) by Mike V. Alternatively, just remove the wide ranging blocks. Gaming4JC (talk) 18:07, 25 October 2015 (UTC)

Decline reason:

Yes, editing from VPNs are often blocked. If you have a compelling need to edit from a VPN, please note it. Kuru (talk) 18:17, 25 October 2015 (UTC)

If you want to make any further unblock requests, please read the guide to appealing blocks first, then use the {{unblock}} template again. If you make too many unconvincing or disruptive unblock requests, you may be prevented from editing this page until your block has expired.

Request reason:

Caught by a web host block but this host or IP is not a web host. It is a commercial VPN used to secure my internet connection, especially when commuting. In the past this was permitted. The block also should not apply to logged in users? It hasn't in the long past. The ranges are 108.61.0.0/16 and 104.200.151.0/24. Thank you. Gaming4JC (talk) 18:51, 25 October 2015 (UTC)

Sorry, editing through a VPN is only permitted in exceptional circumstances. As your non-proxy address is not disrupted by a hard block, we aren't able to grant you the IP block exemption. If you wish to edit, you'll just need to edit without the VPN. As long as you remain logged in, your IP address will remain hidden from public view. Best, Mike VTalk 21:50, 25 October 2015 (UTC)

Guess I'm done editing Wikipedia for awhile. It's been a nice 8 years of non-censorship. I require using a VPN for my Internet security, without it your asking for MITM attacks, especially when using Wifi. Gaming4JC (talk) 00:01, 26 October 2015 (UTC)

Wikipedia disallows VPNs and anonymising services because they are routinely abused by banned users to circumvent their blocks, including some of its most vile long-term abusers. —Jeremy v^_^v Bori! 07:39, 27 October 2015 (UTC)

Project News
By Lionelt

Last month's auspicious relaunch of our newsletter precipitated something of an uproar in the Wikipedia community. What started as a localized edit war over censorship spilled over onto the Administrator's Noticeboard finally ending up at Wikipedia's supreme judicial body ArbCom. Their ruling resulted in the admonishment of administrator Future Perfect at Sunrise for his involvement in the dispute. The story was reported by Wikipedia's venerable flagship newspaper The Signpost.

The question of whether to delete all portals--including the 27 Christianity-related portals--was put to the Wikipedia community. Approximately 400 editors have participated in the protracted discussion. Going by !votes, Oppose deletion has a distinct majority. The original Christianity Portal was created on November 5, 2005 by Brisvegas and the following year he successfully nominated the portal for Featured Portal. The Transhumanist has revived WikiProject Portals with hopes of revitalizing Wikipedia's system of 1,515 portals.

Operation Auca was an attempt by five Evangelical Christian missionaries from the United States to make contact with the Huaorani people of the rainforest of Ecuador. The Huaorani, also known as the Aucas, were an isolated tribe known for their violence, both against their own people and outsiders who entered their territory. With the intention of being the first Protestants to evangelize the Huaorani, the missionaries began making regular flights over Huaorani settlements in September 1955, dropping gifts. After several months of exchanging gifts, on January 2, 1956, the missionaries established a camp at "Palm Beach", a sandbar along the Curaray River, a few miles from Huaorani settlements. Their efforts culminated on January 8, 1956, when all five—Jim Elliot, Nate Saint, Ed McCully, Peter Fleming, and Roger Youderian—were attacked and speared by a group of Huaorani warriors. The news of their deaths was broadcast around the world, and Life magazine covered the event with a photo essay. The deaths of the men galvanized the missionary effort in the United States, sparking an outpouring of funding for evangelization efforts around the world. Their work is still frequently remembered in evangelical publications, and in 2006, was the subject of the film production End of the Spear. (more...)

The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara

The Mortara case was a controversy precipitated by the Papal States' seizure of Edgardo Mortara, a six-year-old Jewish child, from his family in Bologna, Italy, in 1858. The city's inquisitor, Father Pier Feletti, heard from a servant that she had administered emergency baptism to the boy when he fell sick as an infant, and the Supreme Sacred Congregation of the Roman and Universal Inquisition held that this made the child irrevocably a Catholic. Because the Papal States had forbidden the raising of Christians by members of other faiths, it was ordered that he be taken from his family and brought up by the Church. After visits from the child's father, international protests mounted, but Pope Pius IX would not be moved. The boy grew up as a Catholic with the Pope as a substitute father, trained for the priesthood in Rome until 1870, and was ordained in France three years later. In 1870 the Kingdom of Italy captured Rome during the unification of Italy, ending the pontifical state; opposition across Italy, Europe and the United States over Mortara's treatment may have contributed to its downfall.

The Top 7 report
By Lionelt

The big news was the marriage of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. The Top 7 most popular articles in WikiProject Christianity were:

    1. Elizabeth I of England – legendary monarch who ushered in the Elizabethan Era over the dead body of her half-sister (#5)
    2. Henry VIII of England – on his deathbed the last words of the king who founded the English Reformation were "Monks! Monks! Monks!"
    3. Martin Luther King Jr. – can't wait to see the new US$5 bill featuring the "I Have a Dream" speech
    4. Seven deadly sins – surprisingly "original research" is not one of the Seven deadly sins
    5. Mary, Queen of Scots – arrested for Reigning While Catholic (RWC)
    6. Michael Curry (bishop) – our article says that he upstaged Meghan at her wedding. Did you see her wedding pictures? All I can say is {{dubious}}
    7. Robert F. Kennedy – when informed that missiles were being installed in Cuba he famously quipped, "Can they hit Oxford, Mississippi?"

The Last Judgment by painter Hans Memling.

List of dates predicted for apocalyptic events. Predictions of apocalyptic events that would result in the extinction of humanity, a collapse of civilization, or the destruction of the planet have been made since at least the beginning of the Christian Era. Most predictions are related to Abrahamic religions, often standing for or similar to the eschatological events described in their scriptures. Christian predictions typically refer to events like the Rapture, Great Tribulation, Last Judgment, and the Second Coming of Christ.

Polls conducted in 2012 across 20 countries found over 14% of people believe the world will end in their lifetime, with percentages raging from 6% of people in France to 22% in the US and Turkey. In the UK in 2015, the general public believed the likeliest cause would be nuclear war, while experts thought it would be artificial intelligence. Between one and three percent of people from both countries thought the apocalypse would be caused by zombies or alien invasion. (more...)
