Thank you for implimenting the block, but I believe it is clear from the user's edits that he/she is not here to contribute constructively. Out of the user's eight edits, one was a threat that he had other accounts, two were additions of unreferenced content, and the other five were the disruptive edits.—Ryūlóng (竜龙) 13:06, 26 June 2009 (UTC)

Shaker Heights High School

Just out of curiosity, why did you remove a number of people from the alumni list? --Onesius (talk) 10:33, 12 July 2009 (UTC)

I read the hyperlink you offered. That appears to apply to new articles about individuals (i.e., candidates for being the subject of a Wikipedia article) and not for adding people in a list. For example, if you look at the Wikipedia article on Glenville High School (where the creators of "Superman" went to school), there another "notable alumni" who, like the people you deleted from SHHS, are in red. So your edits do not appear to conform to Wikipedia standards nor are they universal. I can give you other examples, but I think you get the point. Please advise. P.S. Where in Ohio did you go to high school? --Onesius (talk) 00:27, 13 July 2009 (UTC)

Thanks. I don't know about the people you mentioned in your reply; however, Dr. Theodore Einstein, William Kahrl and Linda Rogoff are all who the listings said they were. You can Google all of them and find them (I assume you don't want me to include hyperlinks to them), plus Linda Rogoff is mentioned in the Wikipedia article for George Segal. As for "hyperlink," you inserted something that, when I clicked on it, took me to another article. That is what is generally considered to be a "hyperlink" and that is fairly how the Wikipedia article on hyperlinks may be read. Perhaps because I am relatively new to editing in Wikipedia, I was surprised to read your comment about vandalism on some Ohio sites. Do people log on & then trash the sites? Or does something else happen? (High school rivalries can run high in Ohio, which is actually why I asked where you went to school.) Also, is this the best way to communicate? Or should I do it some other way? Thanks. --Onesius (talk) 02:01, 13 July 2009 (UTC)

For sourcing on Bill Kahrl, Ted Einstein & Linda Rogoff having attended SHHS, you can always look at the SHHS yearbooks. For Bill Kahrl, you can also check the Yale yearbook for 1968; for Ted Einstein, you can check the Harvard yearbook for 1969. These list the high schools they attended. I don't remember where Linda Rogoff went to college, but you can probably check her obituary in the Cleveland Plain Dealer from June of 1996 for verification that she went to SHHS. --Onesius (talk) 02:10, 13 July 2009 (UTC)


Just because one cannot review something electronically doesn't make it false. There is more to research & fact-checking than the internet. If you have e-mail, I'll scan the yearbook pages & e-mail them to you. --Onesius (talk) 02:40, 13 July 2009 (UTC)

WikiCup participates in the Wikipedia:The Great Wikipedia Dramaout

Hello all, iMatthew here. I just wanted to let you know about "The Great Wikipedia Dramaout" which starts this Saturday. The goal of the Dramaout is to spend five days working on improving articles and abstaining from any of Wikipedia's drama. I don't think that any of you will have a problem focusing on articles for five days, because of course, any work you get done during the Dramaout will count towards your score in the WikiCup. Details are on the page; hope to see you all signing up! :) iMatthew talk at 00:27, 17 July 2009 (UTC)

Thanks again for your participation! --Jayron32.talk.say no to drama 21:59, 17 July 2009 (UTC)
