Academic Paper on Linguistics, Pentcostalism, etc.Edit

I'm really interested in getting more info about the academic paper you refer to in the page on Charles Fox Parham. Here's what you said in talk:

"I don't care enough about this topic to hunt out a WP:RS, but I have a well-referenced paper presented at an academic conference (on linguistics) that suggests that is the case. Rather than calling it "ridiculously POV", you might wish to consider that "truth is stranger than fiction"."

Do you have an interest in this particular area and hence more resources/links to check out? I would really appreciate that.

Cartwright InquiryEdit

Hi Limegreen. I noticed that you removed some content on the Cartwright Inquiry page. I am quite certain that it was never proven that over 30 women died as a result of the conservative treatment program at NWH. I don't have the time as of this moment but I will locate the references asap. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Rsdn (talkcontribs) 08:28, 31 August 2009 (UTC)

ThanksEdit

Just noticed your helpful comment; I had missed it before. I'm just learning. Thanks. Meg1064 19:09, 20 February 2006 (UTC)Meg1064

WelcomeEdit

Kia ora, e Limegreen!

Thank you for the note about the Kāi Tahu macron. I had noticed it on the website, but they don't display well on a fair proportion of PCs, so I'm not pushing for their use.

Maybe I can interest you in Wikipedia Māori?

Please?

E noho rā.

Suburbs of Dunedin; Psych dept.Edit

Hi Limegreen - erm... do I know who you are? :) Good to see some more additions to the Suburbs of Dunedin article. There seem to be a few ex (or current) OU Psych department people on here - user:Geocachernemesis is another. Grutness...wha? 13:56, 14 May 2005 (UTC)

Ah... I know the name, but it doesn't bring a face to mind. I'd probably recognise you if I saw you though. Grutness...wha? 01:40, 18 May 2005 (UTC)

Gidday James!Edit

I know who you are too. Robert P. O'Shea 11:37, 2005 May 20 (UTC)

Re: Maps, tablesEdit

Hi - Thanks for the comment about the maps - I made up a dozen or so while I couldn't edit yesterday (most of them still to be uploaded). I think adding the tables would be great if you feel like doing it. Another thing I've been meaning to get round to but haven't is expanding the article on Invercargill which is still a bit stubby. Grutness...wha? 28 June 2005 11:51 (UTC)

more additions at ADHDEdit

Could you take a look at Quantum bird's recent additions to Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder? I have my own opinion about these contributions but I would like someone else to take a look so that I'm not accused of forcing my opinion down everyone's throats. -- Antaeus Feldspar 22:26, 23 July 2005 (UTC)

My immediate reaction is not very positive. Thom Hartmann's background doesn't overly impress me, and I'm not a big fan of evolutionary explanations for behaviour anyway. However, I'll have a look at work tomorrow to see if there's been any academic comment on such, and then treat that as a basis for editing. That seems the most balanced solution. Limegreen 23:49, 23 July 2005 (UTC)

OmbudsmanEdit

Given your frustration with fringe antiscience, could you vote on the Ombudsman RFC. It still needs the two person threshold. JFW | T@lk 08:19, 3 November 2005 (UTC)

To tell you the truth, you wouldn't be able to certify as you've not been involved, but you could agree with the summary. JFW | T@lk 10:47, 3 November 2005 (UTC)

Actually, you'd be a very good witness to the fact that Ombudsman has a history of poor cooperation. JFW | T@lk 08:20, 4 November 2005 (UTC)

Disambiguation WorkEdit

Hi. Thanks for the interest in disambiguation. The particular issue with rowing is that it is being used as either a general explanation of what rowing is (Watercraft rowing) or the more specific explanation of rowing in sport (Sport rowing). From the wording in the Twizel article I couldn't interpret the usage as being in a sports context but rather as a leisure use. In any case, obviously you are more familiar with the area/article and I am happy with your input --PTSE 01:19, 15 November 2005 (UTC)

SheepEdit

I am alway reminded of the late Penguin Cafe Orchestra references to sheep and kiwi land, they were very obscure. Thanks for your addition to sheep station, I have a deep and abiding disgruntlement with the us centrism of the whole wiki project, so long live kiwi and oz qualifications to anything, including sheep!User:SatuSuro 10:42, 24 November 2005 (UTC)

Reappearing articleEdit

Thanks for letting me know about that. This is going away ASAP. - Lucky 6.9 23:22, 9 December 2005 (UTC)

APA style manual pictureEdit

The image I was thinking of for APA style was a picture of the cover style manual - e.g., like there is for MLA style manual - not sure whether the image can legitimately be copied e.g., from Amazon? (I'm newish to WP). Sincerely, Jtneill - Talk 13:59, 10 January 2006 (UTC)

Nice one, thanks. BTW - you're the first other member of a psych dept I've met on wikipedia - and we're in the same hemisphere - do you know of any other gaggles of WP psych/social scientists?
There are at least two others affiliated to my department. Admin Grutness is a graduate, and his supervisor is an editor User:Robert P. O'Shea. Apart from that not really. There is User:Juicifer who is apparently a psych academic I think.Limegreen 23:26, 10 January 2006 (UTC)
Don't forget User:Geocachernemesis, a.k.a. Donovan Govan - also one of Robert's postgrad students! Grutness...wha? 05:54, 9 March 2006 (UTC)

Dunedin "suburbs"Edit

Hi James - yeah, I'd noticed the Mosgiel and Port Chalmers ones, since they're on my watchlist. I'm not sure what to do about these edits, other than perhaps leave a note on the individual article talk pages. Might be worth checking articles like Macandrew Bay, too. Grutness...wha? 00:00, 17 January 2006 (UTC)

DSM cautionary statementEdit

Thank you very much for the helpful heads-up you left on my talk page. I suppose I'll leave the section in question alone (and tagged) for the time being, but I might tentatively rewrite it into something more NPOV that basically conveys the same information. Anyway, thanks again for your attention and help. –Sommers (Talk) 20:10, 24 January 2006 (UTC)

Baldwin StreetEdit

I'm more use to Wellington streets, which also have exceedingly poor design (it is quite common for a street to turn into steps before re-starting as a street again) as they were done from London. They were planned in the days before topographical maps were invented. This is a NZ-wide phenomenon as far as I' aware. Blame the British anyway! --Midnighttonight 21:04, 8 March 2006 (UTC)

Anti-ADHDEdit

I don't think the anti stuff belongs in the article. The global warming article devotes a few sentences to the small minority that disagrees. Also, giving the anti so much space-- really does a disservice I think.

Any case, read psychiatry-- it is pretty bad... then imagine if all the anti-psychiatry stuff were merged in. Then read vaccine controversy, anti-vaccinationist, National Anti-Vaccination League and vaccination... and imagine a merge of that ball of wax. Nephron  T|C 04:10, 13 April 2006 (UTC)

Chemical imbalance (theory)Edit

Thanks for your message to me, which I'll quote.

I proposed that chemical imbalance theory be moved to chemical imbalance yesterday. If you look at the "What links here" [1] [2], you'll see that (currently) these pages are only referred to by pages relating to psychiatric issues."

I didn't see your proposal, sorry to pre-empt. I may comment in the appropriate place, but my concern is that "chemical imbalance" does not exclusively apply to the brain. This only requires a short introductory paragraph, I THINK, as there may not be much to say about uncontroversial non-brain cases. "What links here" in Wikipedia today doesn't invalidate other usages.

Chemical imbalance is not used on either diabetes or ketoacidosis, and as far as I'm aware Type I diabetes is usually referred to as an "deficiency", rather than an "imbalance".

I've come across the term in other contexts before. It IS used specifically for diabetes and ketoacidosis: see [2] and [3].
Other uses: [4], [5], [6], [7]

I'm not a great fan of chemical imbalance theory as it stands, but at the very least, I think referring to it as a theory gives it more weight than it is due. Anyway, you should make up your own mind on this matter. There is a vote at Talk:Chemical imbalance theory, and you may choose to Merge or Oppose, but I thought I'd let you know about this.

My concern is more about not losing the general term in favour of the specifically neuroscience usage. I don't have enough expertise to jump in the detailed debate, though I'd bet on a 2-way interaction (neural changes and mental illness affect each other).

Best wishes, Pol098 00:18, 26 April 2006 (UTC)


Thanks for your response. We seem to be approaching consensus on "chemical imbalance" plus "chemical imbalance (mental health)". Best wishes, Pol098 09:59, 26 April 2006 (UTC)

My RfAEdit

Thank you for the trust that you had in me when you supported my Request for Adminship. The nomination ended successfully and I am actually overwhelmed by the support that I received. Thanks again! -- Kim van der Linde at venus 06:32, 3 June 2006 (UTC)

Image?Edit

Hi james - you wrote: Hey, I'm just wondering, but to me this picture looks like the north end of the Rock and Pillars [8]...

Mmm. You're right (that road twists a bit, so I lost track of exactly where I was looking). The photo was taken from about half-way between Kyeburn and Ranfurly, so it will almost certainly be the Rock & Pillars. Grutness...wha?
I've added the picture to the Rock and Pillar Range article, too, but it really needs one taken from Middlemarch, where the range is much more prominent. I doubt I'll get up there until at least after winter is over, though, and possibly not for some time after that. Grutness...wha? 02:58, 27 June 2006 (UTC)
I tried to get a picture from near Lee Stream... but again very hazy...--Limegreen 03:14, 27 June 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for your helpEdit

Thanks for helping me. I was terrified I would mess this editing and creating stuff up but thanks to your help I am doing just fine. I am going to try and finish both of my projects before uni hols are over unless of course someone beats me to it : ) —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Miss Dragonfly (talkcontribs) 16:45, 5 July 2006 UTC.

Spud OneEdit

While this is truly deeply unimportant, there were in fact three 727s, (see [9]). Have reverted your revert :-).

...and put back the latest deletion of historical fact on this page, again modified to remove any hint of pov and to provide a citation. Not meaning to start some sort of edit war, but I don't know what "weasel allegation" meant and the deleted material was, again, clearly factually accurate. I voted Labour, not National or ACT, but I am wary of being seen to pretend their criticisms don't exist or rewrite history to censor their views. Winstonwolfe 03:26, 7 July 2006 (UTC)

Your new explanation is factually accurate. The previous version was NPOV (which is why I deleted it). See explanation at User talk:Winstonwolfe.--Limegreen 03:37, 7 July 2006 (UTC)
Just to explain "weasel"... There's a clear difference between the original "Prime Minister Helen Clark replaced...", and your fresh edit. There was a sourcing problem, but in my mind more importantly, the previous version implied Clark herself had a vendetta against the airforce. Maybe she does, and maybe she did make the decision herself, but that would *really* need to be sourced. Your current version "The Labour government was criticized..." seems to be a far more accurate and NPOV than the former version.
I don't consider this an edit-war at all. I've just been deleting whereas you've been fixing. I'm not doing this in an agenda-ist fashion. Cheers, --Limegreen 03:35, 7 July 2006 (UTC)

Thanks - agree entirely, was worried I might be unintentionally making an enemyWinstonwolfe 03:38, 7 July 2006 (UTC)

Wellington Cable CarEdit

Man, that anon IP (NZ TelstraClear) really doesn't like that picture, do they ... I'm with VUW Psyc dept, btw. Ppe42 00:49, 25 July 2006 (UTC)

Well, I did explain in the discussion page a few months ago that it's a lame pic that doesn't show anything of importance to the Cable Car system. A shot of the Talavera points would be much more appropriate.--210.246.17.210 13:01, 26 July 2006 (UTC)

That explains it... There are a couple of articles which could be merged into it actually - I'm not sure whether Otago University Tramping Club really needs a separate article either. Grutness...wha? 23:28, 26 September 2006 (UTC)

Sauvignon blancEdit

 
Sauvignon blanc

Hello, I just had a look at this wikipedia page: Sauvignon blanc. It seems that there has't been an appropriate picture of the grape, until recently. Therefore, I would like to suggest that we use this one on the right ("Image:Sauvignon blanc vlasotince vineyards.jpg") in this aricle. It's been uploaded today. This geographic location (Vlasotince Vineyards) is in the Southern Morava Region, Serbia. I hope that you agree with me, that we can replace one of the two existing images in this article, maybe the bottles, with it. Of course we can add the bottles later. I hope you are not angry, since you've moved the pics several times. Very nice greetings from the old continent. Let me know what you think. --Vla 01:16, 28 September 2006 (UTC)

OK. The best solution is to add some extra text to the article, so that all three pictures can be included. Anyway the article is missing some details about the grape as well as the mentioning of some other European wine regions (only France is mentioned) where this grape is cultivated. It is not my intention to remove other people's work without their prior consent. This is the reason, why we have this conversation. Your pictures will remain there. Sorry, for bothering you with this. --Vla 03:50, 28 September 2006 (UTC)

No discernible rate of changeEdit

in Autism (incidence) I'm unclear what that phrase means. Is it possible to be more specific? I'm trying to stick very closely in that page (and persuade others likewise) to incidence, prevalence and so on, rather than less precise terms. Midgley 21:55, 3 October 2006 (UTC)

Contiki Tours and HolidaysEdit

OK, I think I see what happened here. There was an existing article at Contiki Tours which survived AFD. On Oct 3, User:Adrenalynn75 created a new page, Contiki Holidays, which was a lot gushier (stuff like "unique mix" of tours to the "beautiful island of Mykonos"). That article was tagged for speedy deletion as spam, and when I looked at it, it only had a history going back to Oct 3 with no AFD discussion apparent. In the meantime, other users had redirected all the Contiki articles so that they led back to the spammy one. So, after Contiki Holidays was deleted as spam, all the rest got deleted as redirects to nonexistent pages.

I see that someone else restarted Contiki Tours. I restored its edit history and reverted to the last nonspammy edit. That should take care of things, I hope. Thanks for making me aware of this. NawlinWiki 21:35, 3 November 2006 (UTC)

  • The talk page is now restored, too. Thanks again, NawlinWiki 21:52, 3 November 2006 (UTC)

PsyD vs. PhDEdit

First, I should state my bias and say that my wife is finishing her PhD in Clinical Psychology.

That having been said....

I think some distinctions need to be addressed regarding the difference between the PsyD and the PhD in Psychology.

Now, I think the point of the Doctor of Psychology article is to define the PsyD degree, which is a subset of all Clinical Psychologists with terminal degrees (i.e. PhD-level). It seems to be a little vague in drawing a clear contrast between the two.

Not sure where to begin, but I feel like being a little bold...

National Certificate of Educational AchievementEdit

Hi there, just wanted to commend/praise/thank/whatever-you-want-to-call-it for your watchful eye on that NCEA article. It's comforting to know that there's someone like you onto it, reverting vandalism and POV edits. I've only just noticed that, while NCEA's spent the last couple of years improving and moving along, the article's stayed behind! One day, the article'll get a bit of an overhauling update, somehow. (I get lazy.) Whoops, getting sidetracked. Point is, thanks and well done for your efforts to keep the NCEA article from, well, losing shape, I guess. :-) (talk) Neonumbers 12:28, 17 December 2006 (UTC)

PsyD Part IIEdit

I can try, but I can only speculate in many cases. I would like to include material that can be verified and cited.

In the case of my wife, she has about 5000 hours of supervised clinical work. She is in her final year of her degree. Although my wife has a LOT more clinical hours than others, I THINK the average is in the range of 1000 to 2000 hours for her peers.

For some bearings, this is a rough sketch of my wife's education, as far as I can reckon:

1) First few years of PhD are classes and some clinical work at the schools facilities. 2) Middle year or two are more classes and some work in an approved and supervised externship, which is basically like an internship except you don't get paid. There are a set-up specifically for PhD AND PsyD candidates... but either can work at such a position. 3) Last year is an approved and supervised internship. There are miuch fewer of these and they are set-up specifically for PhD AND PsyD candidates. In fact, my wife is interviewing for one of these positions this morning. Again, it should be noted that she is competing with other PhDs AND PsyDs for these positions. Competing for these intership positions is akin to how MDs in the USA compete for residencys.

Since both PhDs and PsyDs need to be licenced and certified to practice (i.e. there is a common standard that must be met by both PhDs and PsyDs, the assertation that one is a better clinician than the other is bunk. What I am NOT mentioning, is that PsyDs tend to score LOWER on the national licensing exam as PhDs. I do not know what that means:

One disconcerting trend is that PsyD graduates do not perform as well as PhD graduates on the national licensing examination for psychologists (Kupfersmid & Fiala, 1991; McGaha & Minder, 1993; Yu et al., 1997). That is, doctoral students who graduate with PsyDs score lower, on average, than doctoral students who graduate with PhDs on the Examination for Professional Practice in Psychology (EPPP), the national licensing test. Higher EPPP scores have been reliably associated with smaller-sized clinical programs and larger faculty-to-student ratios, in addition to traditional PhD curricula.

This replicated difference probably applies more to the larger, freestanding PsyD programs than to the smaller, university-based PsyD programs. But the lesson is clear: smaller sized programs with proportionally more faculty are important factors to consider in selecting a doctoral program. [10]

Roodog2k 16:02, 18 December 2006 (UTC)

  • Oh, to clarify what I think that you are asking... in the United States, there is a clinical component when getting a PhD in Clinical Psychology as there is with a PsyD. You have to have so many clinical hours to get your degree. I do not know what this is for my wife's univeristy.Roodog2k 18:27, 18 December 2006 (UTC)

Return of PhD vs. PsyDEdit

Yeah, I think I see where your confusion lies...

a PhD is a PhD is a PhD here in the US too, but it kind of depends on what its in... I think that you are saying that there are two elements to being a PhD-level clinician in New Zealand... the academic element (PHD) and the clinical element (Dip.Clin.Psych). Look at Phillippa [11].

So, I see that at your Univeristy, the following requirements [12]. It seems to me that you can either pursue JUST the academic element of Psychology (PhD in Psychology), which includes research OR you can do BOTH Dimploma in Clinical Psychology, which requires at least academic study in Psychology at the Master of Science Level.

I may be competely wrong in drawing the following analogy, but here it goes... I think the Dip.Clin.Psych is like a PsyD without the academic element (i.e. concurrent MS or PHD). Roodog2k 19:44, 21 December 2006 (UTC)

Benjiwolf on Glyphosate pageEdit

Hi Limegreen,

I have been an editor on the Glyphosate page and basically doing battle with a user called Benjiwolf. This guy loves to come in an revert edits to his favorite text. I had made some edits on Glyphosate which he arbritrarily reverted recently. Then I noted that you had done some nice work on this page too this morning my time. And now this evening I note that with this [13] edit he has arbritarily and without any justification undone all your nice work.

This guy does this sort of crap all the time and I want to report this guy for disruptive editing.

I have been working a bit on the Glyphosate article and had requested citations be provided for some to the claims that suggest that Glyphosate is highly toxic. Benjiwolf performed this edit on this work on 5th Feb [[14]]. This reverted some work of mine to put some perspective on the Glyphosate toxicity and also deleted {{fact}} tags . After explaining my reasoning on the Talk page [15] I put the {{fact}} tags back in [16]

Then on 10th Feb Benjiwolf peforms this [17] edit which again deleted my request for citations. Benjiwolf cunningly disguises the deletion of my fact tags by calling this edit "revert to last edit feb 6 / 9:37 by ttguy"

I have asked for references to back up these claims on Talk:Glyphosate#citations needed with disucssion continuing under Talk:Glyphosate#contentious???. I have also asked for Benjiwolfs cooperation on his talk page (11 Feb)

I have pointed him to Wikipedia policy pages - eg on this [18] edit I mention Wikipedia:Verifiability.

Dispite all this he has just come back with this [[19]] edit which he has labled as "removing vandalism" . As you can see he has deleted good faith edits which attempt to put the toxicity of glyphosate in context and has again dropped off {{fact}} tags where we could reasonably expect a citation to provide verifiability of claims. This is really starting to cheese me off. There is no way the edit I made is vandalism.

I have looked at the page on dealing with disruptive editors Dealing with disruptive editors which recomends the following - and I think I am up to number 4. But I note that a Request for Comment on a user wants you to have tried to have more than one editor resolve the dispute on the Talk page.

So what I am asking is for you to try and talk some sense into the Benjiwolf person for me. 

My feeling is it will do no good but it is worth a shot. He seems to generate a bit of heat where ever he goes this guy judging by other peoples gripes on his talk page.

From Dealing with disruptive editors
1. Assume good faith. Do not attack the author whom you suspect is a crank. However, revert uncited or unencyclopedic material. Use an edit summary which describes the problem in non-inflammatory terms.
2. If editor unreverts.
Post to talk page asking for discussion and/or sources. Revert again if no response, along with edit summary.
3. Problems continue.
Attempt to engage new editor in dialog. Refer to policies and guidelines as appropriate.
4. Talk page discussion fails to resolve the problem.
Request an Wikipedia:Requests for comment or other impartial dispute resolution.

Your help would be appreciated.

difficult article ... etcEdit

The tag applied to your large edit reverted at http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Frequency_of_autism&diff=prev&oldid=109892546 seems quite unsupported - "rv blanking vandalism". Such persistent turfwaring by a small number of editors has prevented that article from becoming reasonable in quality or content. You may not have seen autism (incidence) which started as an extract of all incidence related information, with most of the uncited material then removed, and is reasonably good. Best to let the old morass go, but possibly comment on the behaviour of the editors who are determined to keep it in its poor state? Midgley 00:54, 14 March 2007 (UTC)

Reference tag stuffEdit

Yep you're probably right, I'll definitely try to be more selective in future. I'll also start using that little Citation needed thing in brackets, which is more specific- I kinda went onto auto-pilot adding those "unreferenced" tags tonight and thus didn't think that thoroughly whether they were really needed. My bad, I'll make a point of being much more careful about it in future. Thanks for the polite feedback about this, Cheers Kotare 09:38, 16 March 2007 (UTC)

Wiki-WinosEdit

Howdy!I was curious if you would be interested in participating in an upcoming Wiki-Winos feature for the Wine Project Newsletter. If you are, take a look at the Interview Questionnaire and feel free to answer any or all of the questions that you like. If you have any questions, feel free to drop me a line on my talk page. There you would find a link to User talk:Agne27/Wiki-Winos to where you could answer the Wiki-Winos question. Thanks! AgneCheese/Wine 02:24, 4 April 2007 (UTC)

MoneyEdit

Thanks for changing exactly what I was criticizing. The entire section contains other inaccurate and misrepresented junk. Will you help correct, or at least review and support further fixes where you agree? The distortions are apparently being defended by one editor who seems to be more committed to demonizing him than making an accurate article. alteripse 04:39, 12 April 2007 (UTC)

I don't think that's accurate. Joie de Vivre 00:06, 13 April 2007 (UTC)

RE capitalisationEdit

Actually - I was also changing the link genital reassignment surgery to genital reassignment surgery (correcting the redirect). The AGF was in regards to my actions, not yours... WP:AAGF Cheers! Lauren/ 04:39, 8 May 2007 (UTC)

Query regarding WP:WINEEdit

So I was looking at WP:WINE for no apparent reason, and besides the snazzy page design I might rip off I was wondering about the newsletter. Not really sure if you're the one to ask, but is the process of sending out the newsletters automated? If so, could you help me figure out where to go to do something similar for one of my own wikiprojects? Sincerely, David Fuchs (talk / frog blast the vent core!) 23:01, 16 May 2007 (UTC)

Diabetes, Depression & DashKatEdit

Had to laugh at your ironic dismissal of his insolence. I don't know if a discussion of the reported link between diabetes and depression should be included in the Depression article, but as a 65 y.o. person with bipolar disorder who has just received the diagnosis of pre-diabetes (which is just diabetes found earlier than they used to find it), I certainly have an interest in the the topic. --Halcatalyst 04:32, 8 June 2007 (UTC)

Dean BarkerEdit

Hi Limegreen, Notice that you started the Dean Barker article. I have been doing some edits/updates and hopefully keeping the article balanced in spite of user Lgask. Hope my edits are in-line with your thinking and please keep deleting Lgask's edits as it looks like he/she is very persistent. rgds, Boatman 12:10, 10 July 2007 (UTC)

Apologies to everyone for this notification being sent out so late, events in real life prevented me from distributing it at the time, and the Wine Project's had a bit of a lull during the Northern Hemsiphere summer. But as the nights draw in, activity should pick up again, and hopefully the next Newsletter will arrive a little more quickly....

Tthe next few weeks are the perfect time to take photos of grapes in the Northern Hemisphere - get your cameras out! FlagSteward 15:53, 1 September 2007 (UTC)

Prospective MemoryEdit

Taking your page seriously and armed with my enthusiasm for the subject, McDaniel & Einstein (2007), a special issue of the Intl Journal of Psychology, Tulving's Handbook, and Baddeley (2007), I would like to work with you to improve Prospective Memory. If you don't have a lot of time, just take a look at the questions I've begun to ask in its talk page and at the [citation needed] tags. Please take them as requests for clarification rather than challenges. I don't know what new research is finding and whether McD&E's framework and definitions are accepted. Hoping you'll join.

Fair use rationale for Image:Twizelmap.jpgEdit

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Twizelmap.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. 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 media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Jackaranga 09:49, 10 November 2007 (UTC)

Disputed fair use rationale for Image:Apapubman.jpgEdit

Thanks for uploading Image:Apapubman.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale you have provided for using this image under "fair use" may be invalid. Please read the instructions at Wikipedia:Non-free content carefully, then go to the image description page and clarify why you think the image qualifies for fair use. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If it is determined that the image does not qualify under fair use, it will be deleted within a couple of days according to our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot (talk) 06:57, 1 January 2008 (UTC)

New Zealand EnglishEdit

About a year ago, in this edit, you added a statement about the pronunciation of 'dance' in Australia and Southland, and gave as your source 'Bartlett (1992)'. I notice that the statement has been recently changed from Southland to South Australia. This may well also be correct, but as Bartlett is not listed elsewhere in the article, I cannot go back to your source to see exactly what you meant. Could you check the latest changes to the article, and also provide a fuller reference (author's full name and title of work). Thanks.-gadfium 18:29, 23 January 2008 (UTC)

Psychoactive drug - Thoric's chart is backEdit

Hi, once upon a time you contributed to a discussion concerning a chart on the Psychoactive drug article, which was a Venn diagram depicting a classification system for psychoactive substances created by User:Thoric. I was under the impression that the community had spoken and that the chart had been deemed original research, and indeed the chart has been absent from the article for almost a year, but it has recently re-appeared and its creator is lobbying heavily for its inclusion. I would greatly appreciate your comments in the renewed discussion. Thanks! Steve CarlsonTalk 00:01, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

Kea Audio inventionEdit

Dear Limegreen.

I stumbled over the article about my company Kea Audio (while googeling) and saw your comment about the deletion. I have indeed invented a new cone material and called it Polyepicell. I have not patented it because it is mostly useless to have a patent and it is also expensive. I am a very small manufacturer of top of the line speakers and cannot afford big expenses. The fact that my invention is not mentioned much is because: 1.) I have not time writing articles (I also have a fulltime job as technology teacher) 2.) I do not have the money to make big advertising to promote my speakers, so it is mainly word of mouth.

I do have a masters degree in Electronics/Acoustics however and wrote a paper about loudspeakers at the University of Berlin.

I noticed that you live in New Zealand as well. So you are most welcome either to write me an email (see my website loudspeaker.co.nz) or call me (again see my website for phone number) or visit me when you are in Nelson. You are most welcome and if you are really nice I will fix you a home roasted Cuban espresso (if you like)...

Hoping to hear from you cheers Joachim —Preceding unsigned comment added by Keaaudio (talkcontribs) 20:26, 27 January 2009 (UTC)

Important Wine Project decision needs input!Edit

Hello, the Wine Project is currently in the process of hammering out a proposed policy relating to Wikipedia:Notability (wine topics). As Wikipedia and its wine coverage continues to grow, the need for a clear, concise guideline on how Wikipedia's notability policies such as WP:CORP, WP:SIGCOV and WP:NOTE relate to wine articles has emerged. Please review the proposed policy and take part in the talk page discussion Wikipedia_talk:Notability_(wine_topics)#Ready_to_go_live.3F. All inputs and view points are welcomed.

Non-free rationale for File:Montana logo.jpgEdit

 

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Montana logo.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under non-free content criteria, but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia is acceptable. Please go to the file description page, and edit it to include a non-free rationale.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified the non-free rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' 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 "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page.

Please attribute or claim media you uploaded or restored: File:Kakanui.jpgEdit

You uploaded or restored , File:Kakanui.jpg, but for various reasons did not add an {{information}} block, or indicate your (user) name on the file description page. Media uploaded to Wikipedia needs information on the SPECIFIC authorship and source of files, to ensure that it complies with copyright laws in various jurisdictions.

If it's entirely your own work:
please include {{own}} in the relevant source field, amend the {{information}} added by a third party, ensuring that your user name (or name you want used for attribution) is clear in the author field, and change the license to an appropriate "self" variant (if such a license is not already used). You should also add an |author= parameter to the license tag, to assist reviews and image patrollers.

When you have copmpleted the above steps: to indicate that you've accepted the given the license shown, and updated the file description page appropriately.

If it's not entirely your own work, or the media is based on the work of others:
Please update the source and authorship fields, so that they accurately reflect the source and authors of the original work(s), as well as the derivative you created. You should also not use a "self" license unless the work is entirely you own. Media that is incorrectly claimed as self or {{own}}, will eventually be listed at Files for Discussion or deleted, unless it's full status is entirely clear to other contributors, reviewers and image patrollers. You should also read Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission which details how to confirm any permissions you obtained for works by others that are still in copyright.

Whilst this notification, relates to a single media upload, it would also be appreciated if you could ensure that appropriate attribution exists for other media you uploaded, You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log.

If media is not claimed, and there's no other obvious source or authorship information, the file may have to be removed for copyright reasons.

It's okay to remove or strike messages like this once the concerns have been addressed. :). ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 15:13, 24 October 2018 (UTC)

NZ election poll imageEdit

Since I know you're the updater for the NZ election poll chart, do you think adding the Stuff Nov 2019 poll and the Business NZ Reid research March 2019 poll would be necessary to the chart, too? The past three years saw a reduced number of polls so I thought it would be nice if they are okay adding it in. Thanks. Typhoon2013 (talk) 04:33, 21 May 2020 (UTC)

@Typhoon2013:Stuff used to run a poll, but it was discontinued, so I don't see it as too contentious to add it. Though to the extent that there are 'house effects' (ie methodological differences etc specific to a polling company), that would add a bit of extra noise to the line. And given that Reid Research are included for a different client, that also seems contentious. The graphs just scrape the information from the table. So if the polls are included in the table, they will be picked up. If you do add them, important to set the poll-sort-date correctly, as that is what the graph relies on (usually the closing data of the polling period. I'm not on wikipedia so often (for editing at least), but I do read the NZ political news, which is why I'm usually aware of a new poll arrival. Best Limegreen (talk) 09:55, 21 May 2020 (UTC)
Yeah both of those polls are added in the table and has been there since whoever putted that up there. And I do not know how to edit the graph, sorry. Typhoon2013 (talk) 10:08, 21 May 2020 (UTC)
And for an extra note that One news has now released their recent poll, too. This election will be insane! Typhoon2013 (talk) 10:08, 21 May 2020 (UTC)
Oh yeah, I was explicitly on wikipedia this morning because I'd just read about the One News poll. So if those other polls were in the table, they are now in the graph. Limegreen (talk) 14:27, 21 May 2020 (UTC)
