A strange ommision - turns out it was converted into a redirect as someone thought it was a definiton of... something. I have reverted and expanded the original. (Emperor 20:09, 7 January 2007 (UTC))

Regarding the "List of minor characters in Judge Dredd" article

Hello, Richard 75. I've noticed that you appear to regularly maintain and edit Judge Dredd sections, so I figured you'd likely be aware of discussions and changes made to the articles more than most. I was wondering if perhaps we should think about adding some images to the "List of minor characters in Judge Dredd" article. Not all characters, but possibly the more prominent or memorable names. As I mentioned above, if this has already been discussed, it's likely you would be aware of the decision regarding such additions. What do you think? Gamer Junkie 12:38, 5 February 2007 (UTC)

Seems a good idea. (Emperor 13:41, 5 February 2007 (UTC))
Thanks for the update. Perhaps if we take it over to the talk page we can throw out some ideas for pictures then we can work to dig out some good ones? (Emperor 17:22, 5 February 2007 (UTC))
Okay, let's do this. I'll see what I can dig up. It's gonna be difficult finding images without licensing issues. The best thing to do would be to scan our own Megazines or 2000AD issues and add the images. Of course, if this is a problem, we could probably grab scanned images from somebody else. Here's hoping there're fans out there who've bothered to add images to their blogs/websites or whatever. Then all we need is their permission to use them. Gamer Junkie 21:47, 5 February 2007 (UTC)

Red links

Please don't delete red links. There is no policy to do this on Wikipedia. Red links frequently become blue links. -- Necrothesp 13:57, 9 June 2007 (UTC)

Let's settle this dispute

Let me state that although I do not like your attitude and I have been called worse by people much better, let's get a third opinion and resolve this dispute. Next time you want to insult me, consider this before shooting your mouth off. Wikipedia:Assume good faith. We're all working towards the same goals, even if they do not meet your standards. I do not justify myself to you and find it highly inflammatory that my abilities are being questioned and that things are starting to get personal. In the meanwhile, I am willing to be diplomatic by stopping comic assessments until a third party makes a decision. I contacted a very respected and regarded editor on the wiki comics project with many accolades and I know that he will be able to resolve this. Maple Leaf

Request for third party assistance

Sure, glad to help. Please give me till Monday, so I have time to look things over carefully. --Tenebrae 17:57, 15 June 2007 (UTC)

OK. I've taken a sampling of User:Maple Leaf's Comics Project Talk-page boxes with importance ratings. Let me say first that I had no links to any of the allegedly insulting or inflammatory comments that User:Richard75 may have been leaving; I think it goes without saying that any such comments are not to be tolerated. We can criticize actions — hopefully in a constructive, positive and polite way — but we don't make it personal and we don't name-call. That just creates anger, which leads to flame wars, which just gets unnecessarily unpleasant.
That said: I do see where Maple Leaf provides a service. While he or she adds the box to articles as new as two days old, he or she has also added them to such pages as Talk:Dormammu and Talk:Wolfpack (Marvel Comics), which had sat boxless since 2005 and late 2006, respectively.
What I think might help is for Maple Leaf to add a brief explanation — maybe three or four sentences, using language from Wikipedia:WikiProject Comics/Article Classification — each time he or she adds a box. There's even a built-in link phrased "Please explain the rating here" that appears in each box. That would make it easier for others to add their own thoughts, and create a community consensus for either keeping that initial springboard or changing it.
Without seeing any of the back-and-forth between Maple Leaf and Richard75, I don't know if there are other issues involved. I hope some of these observations have helped; I'm flattered at your both asking me, and let's keep our fingers crossed that I haven't made things worse! Happy Wiki'ing, -- Tenebrae 01:33, 19 June 2007 (UTC)


Tags and white space

Although I agree with some of the tags and templates you have removed, I disagree that you should remove them SOLELY because they create white space. Sometimes the templates are more important than whether white space is created. Who appointed you to make these decisions? Move them or other material around to minimize white space, but don't delete them unless you have a legitimate reason. Thank you. Ward3001 02:17, 3 July 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Rookie_Judge_Kraken.jpg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Rookie_Judge_Kraken.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use. Suggestions on how to do so can be found here.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. 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 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. Videmus Omnia 16:42, 9 July 2007 (UTC)

Non-free use disputed for Image:Beeny.jpg

  This file may be deleted.

Thanks for uploading Image:Beeny.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale you have provided for using this image under "fair use" may be invalid.

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.

I Am The Law

So what is the title of this Anthrax song? Is it:

  1. I Am The Law
  2. I Am The Law,
  3. I Am the Law
  4. I Am the Law,
  5. I am the Law
  6. I am the Law,
  7. I am the law
  8. I am the law,

Online track lists tend to show the first variant, the Among the Living article uses the third, but I don't know if there is a Wikipedia policy on the capitalization of initial letters in song titles. You changed it back to the 6th variant. I removed the comma from the Judge Dredd article as I couldn't find any evidence that the comma is part of the song name. I'm not going to remove it again, no edit war here, but why do you think there should be a comma there? — PhilHibbs | talk 11:50, 18 September 2007 (UTC)

I don't, I messed up. Richard75 18:29, 18 September 2007 (UTC)

Review for Treason Act 1661

Hi, I noticed you listed Treason Act 1661 at Wikipedia:WikiProject_Law/Assessment#Requesting_an_assessment. The page doesn't seem to be too active, and if you want I'm willing to review the article for you. However, I'm not a member of wikiproject law.Bless sins 20:55, 20 October 2007 (UTC)

No problem. :-) Could you look at Islamic military jurisprudence when you time? Thanks.Bless sins 21:01, 20 October 2007 (UTC)
I have reviewed the article, [1] and removed it from the assessment list.[2]
Please remember to remove Islamic military jurisprudence from the list as well, after you're done looking at it.Bless sins 21:23, 20 October 2007 (UTC)

External links on the entry on Treason

Richard charges Stephen378 thusly for merely adding external links to the article on "Treason":

"An encyclopedia is not a venue for advertising a book that somebody wrote which happens to be called Treason, nor is it a place for linking to a political editorial in a newspaper column, nor a forum for your views. It is for reporting facts, not Ann Coulter's opinions."

Reply by Stephen378:

You obviously did not read the book or the article then and thus make FALSE CHARGES against a fellow editor. Linking to a bestselling book by a lawyer full of fact and inference which you unjustifiably call mere "opinions" is not "advertising a book" any more than a link to any other book is! Shame on your fallacious charges! If anyone should be blocked, it is someone who deletes external links without just cause. The reader should have the option of following the link to an actual application of our treason laws by a Cornell Law School graduate no less, who substantiates her work in fact and law. But you denied them that option. On what grounds? Falsely made up ones. If her results are not palatable your personal political preferences, then you have no right to delete them based purely on your own private bias! And then you have the nerve to blame another for giving the reader the option to link to them! Shame on you! You should be blocked if you continue this sort of arrogant, petty control of a communal site. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Stephen378 (talk • I didn't sign it to avoid redundancy, silly, I said "Reply by Stephen378" at the outset!

The link was inappropriate, since it linked to a publication irrelevant to the subject matter of the article. The competence or lack thereof of the author is not an issue; the application of our standards for external links is. --Orange Mike | Talk 22:19, 27 November 2007 (UTC) (and please sign your posts)
