Re: user page layoutEdit

Hello -

Thanks for the message, and no, I don't mind at all. It's not a one-day job to copy because you'll have to change a lot of usernames and page names from mine to yours, but it's pretty straightforward once you get into it.

It's Gurch's original design. I asked his permission and he said he liked my finished product. Unfortunately, Gurch went a little nutso several months ago, not long after I got my mop, and he blanked his user page then requested G7 deletion.

If you want the status switcher, you need Misza13's status switcher script, a /StatusTemplate page, and a /Status page. I have three status choices but you can have as many or as few as you want - the script will support them all. The script itself is a little tricky to get to work. In the end, I copied Misza13's entire monobook.js page to get everything to function correctly. Misza had the same stuff I had, Twinkle and popups and VoiceofAll's scripts, so my problem must have been in the order they were on my page or something.

If you want the calendar, you'll need both /Calendar and /Templates/Calendarbox pages. My /Calendar page is Gurch's original with a few changes, but I decided I wanted more variety and less "nothing interesting is happening today", so I changed it to /Calendarcurrentmonth. Now it changes on the first of every month, User:KrakatoaKatie/CalendarApril leads to User:KrakatoaKatie/CalendarMay, and so on. (That reminds me - I've got to do CalendarJune pretty soon.) The calendar is all transclusion, no script required.

Let me know if you have questions or need help, and of course, tell me when you've got it completely ready - I'd like to see it! Have fun! :-) - KrakatoaKatie 00:07, 11 May 2008 (UTC)

Thanks a whole lot! That status things like too much work though, lol. Cheers. ~ UBeR (talk) 02:42, 11 May 2008 (UTC)
It looks terrific! :-) Status switcher isn't any trouble at all once you get the script to work, and when it works it's really, really cool. Calendar is a bit of trouble but I like it, so I do it - and once I've got the whole year done, it won't be any work anymore either. Great job! - KrakatoaKatie 02:55, 14 May 2008 (UTC)
Thanks! ~ UBeR (talk) 04:33, 14 May 2008 (UTC)

Requesting your input at Wikipedia:WikiProject Economics/Featured Article driveEdit

Since you are a member of WikiProject Economics, I would like to direct your attention to Wikipedia:WikiProject Economics/Featured Article drive. We are currently deciding on an economics-related article to bring to Featured Article status and we would like your input. Thanks! Gary King (talk) 15:18, 12 May 2008 (UTC)

Really is an olive branchEdit

But, very nice job on some of these glacier articles. I think the Glaciers of Minnesota article is a mess, and I've been trying to contribute some of my non-expert knowledge, but I see your name everywhere on these articles. You don't have to answer me, but I just wanted you to know that these articles are substantially approved over the past few months, because of you. Also, I'm stealing your layout of your user page. If you don't want me to do it, just post something somewhere. OrangeMarlin Talk• Contributions 18:43, 12 May 2008 (UTC)

Never mind, I steal it from KK, from whom you've adapted your user page.OrangeMarlin Talk• Contributions 18:45, 12 May 2008 (UTC)
Much thanks. I think the Minnesota article is decent, but it needs in-text citations. The Quaternary article is rather good, and needs some reference formatting and perhaps a few more inline citations. That article is nearly complete and could make GA with few more workers to improve its quality.
The layout I got from KK, which she got from Gurch. I've been trying to find a good color scheme. Best of luck with that. ~ UBeR (talk) 18:56, 12 May 2008 (UTC)
Well, one of my hobbies in North American glaciation during the Holocene. I was thinking of putting together an article on the recent history of the glaciation of the Sierra Nevadas. I don't quite qualify as a global warming denialist, but there some weird evidence that gives me pause, such as most, if not all, of the current glaciers in California are remnants of the Little Ice Age as opposed to the larger scale glaciations of greater than 10,000 years ago. Anyways, do you think a Sierra glaciation article (I can't find one) might be useful? OrangeMarlin Talk• Contributions 20:45, 12 May 2008 (UTC)
BTW, a suggestion about your user page, your big red lines are kind of overkill. I like this page for readability. OrangeMarlin Talk• Contributions 20:46, 12 May 2008 (UTC)
I've actually been reading some of Muir's work. It's nice. An article on glaciation in the Sierra Nevada could be of use, but I would check Geology of the Yosemite area first.
As for the layout, I've tried a few other schemes that I don't like so much: [2] [3] [4]. I'll fiddle around some more. ~ UBeR (talk) 21:06, 12 May 2008 (UTC)
Not too sure about the green lol. ~ UBeR (talk) 22:48, 12 May 2008 (UTC)
Never mind. The red is best there. LOL. Back to the Sierras. Yosemite is fine, but I was thinking more of Glaciers of California or something like that. OrangeMarlin Talk• Contributions 23:58, 12 May 2008 (UTC)

←Love the blue color matching on your Talk page and User page. Beautiful. I might steal it ;) OrangeMarlin Talk• Contributions 03:08, 14 May 2008 (UTC)

Hah, yeah took a while to settle on a color. ~ UBeR (talk) 04:32, 14 May 2008 (UTC)
Might I swipe this format from you? I really like it. OrangeMarlin Talk• Contributions 00:53, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
Feel free. The coding is a bit messy though. ~ UBeR (talk) 01:39, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

Re: Suspected SocksEdit

Per this, and accordingly, Raul654's tagging of User:Victor P. Shales and User:Cone of Silence. Hope this answers your question. Regards, WilliamH (talk) 16:30, 18 May 2008 (UTC)

Ah, thanks. ~ UBeR (talk) 16:36, 18 May 2008 (UTC)

Lead for climate articleEdit

Raymond has proposed a structural change for the article which might allow the current length to be reasonable. Even as it stands, throwing one line in the lead per each climate regime could make the lead too long. An editor (could have been Raymond) made a comment during an edit that the lead was too long, due to redundancy, during one of his edits of the article and it was shortened. I'm willing to leave the tag there for the time being...but there needs to be clarification as to what would need to be added to the lead (which is included in the main article) to make the lead a "proper length," so the editors aren't just left guessing. Thegreatdr (talk) 18:15, 19 May 2008 (UTC)

The template was on the talk page since May 3; I simply moved it to the mainspace where it belongs. Dr. Arritt's edit was simply removing over-specific information from the lead, which doesn't negate the fact that, overall, the lead is too short and does not adequately summarize the main points of the article. To wit, I would personally suggest explaining in more detail the classifications and explaining modern measurements and the current trend of global warming. (After the sentence on paleoclimatology, I think that could be a good spot to discuss current modern recording. After that is the sentence on climate models, which is there already. After the climate models would be a good spot to discuss the trend of global warming.) Furthermore, the way it's currently put together, it doesn't seem very coherent. The flow seems awkward. It's as if each sentence in the lead just summarizes a section of the article but doesn't really put it in any context for the reader. ~ UBeR (talk) 18:34, 19 May 2008 (UTC)

Requested photoEdit

Hello! I noticed that on your userpage you state that you are living in St. Paul. Would you be willing to take and upload a photo of the St. Paul Minnesota Temple? It would be much appreciated. —Remember the dot (talk) 01:10, 1 June 2008 (UTC)

Mail me a digital camera and I sure would. ~ UBeR (talk) 03:36, 1 June 2008 (UTC)
 :-P do I look like I'm made of money??? If I were filthy rich I could just fly to St. Paul and take the picture myself!
In all seriousness, if you can't that's fine, but if you get the chance to use a cell phone camera or something, that would be great. —Remember the dot (talk) 04:29, 1 June 2008 (UTC)
I don't even have a cable to connect to my computer from my phone. It does not look like I am the one to contact about doing this stuff. ;-) Best of luck. ~ UBeR (talk) 04:39, 1 June 2008 (UTC)
OK, I see. Thanks anyway. —Remember the dot (talk) 04:47, 1 June 2008 (UTC)

Saint Paul GA PreparationEdit

Hello,

The Saint Paul, Minnesota article is being prepared for GA Nomination ahead of the 2008 RNC and the attention the article will be receiving (and in some cases already has).

Other editors and myself have been working on the article lately and we would like to you to help. If you have additions, comments, concerns, questions or other feed back, it is all appreciated. There is a peer review already set up and detailed checklist of issues that need to be fixed is on the talk page. These items can be crossed off when completed. Feel free to add to the list and sign your username, so that we know who added it.

Any help is appreciated. Also, if you would like to work on other articles directly related to Saint Paul, especially those that link off the Saint Paul article, that would be great too.

Thanks and have a great day, Calebrw (talk) 19:18, 28 July 2008 (UTC)

So not only are all the roads being redone in preparation for the RNC, but so are our Wikipedia articles. They both mean the same thing though: gridlock. ;-) Best of luck. ~ UBeR (talk) 23:30, 28 July 2008 (UTC)

WikiPropaganda - WMC & his GW POV Censors are Finally Exposed on CBSEdit

At last the world is coming to know of the WikiPropaganda which we have been fighting for years. See: [6] ~~ Rameses (talk) 21:16, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

UBeR, I want to get your advice on a new Article which I have written. The Article is titled "Wikipropaganda" [7] and seeks to describe a new word or concept which has arisen since Lawrence Solomon first wrote an article of this name. This article has been published by National Review Online and reprinted on the CBS News website[8]. The fact that this word/concept has entered widespread use is easily verified through a google search for wikipropaganda which returns well over 4,000 webpages using this term. The article was well referenced and only quotes from the published referenced work. I tried to keep from inserting any POV and simply referenced published sources for the information describing the term. Unfortunately, the article was immediately deleted without explanation. I reposted it and was pleased to see several other editors adding to the article. Again, it was deleted and this time I was blocked for 24 hours by Raul654. This ia an article on a genuine subject which merits inclusion in Wikipedia. How can I get the article on Wikipedia without constantly being censored simply because the topic does not reflect well on certain Wikipedia editors and administrators? What are the rules under which these deletions are occurring? Wikipedia now very much resembles "Animal Farm" where the rules are being defined, bent and interpreted by the bureaucrats to their sole benefit. ~~ Rameses (talk) 16:52, 5 August 2008 (UTC)

Ron PaulEdit

Ron Paul has been nominated for a featured article review. Articles are typically reviewed for two weeks. Please join the discussion on whether this article meets the featured quality. If substantial concerns are not addressed during the review period, the article will be moved to the Featured Article Removal Candidates list for a further period, where editors may declare "Keep" or "Remove" the article's featured status. The instructions for the review process are here. Reviewers' concerns are here. --Andrew Kelly (talk) 05:19, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

Standing Offer/RequestEdit

Given our past interactions on various topics I thought I would make the following offer.

If you ever have something you want me to offer an opinion on or that you feel I might personally be interested in anywhere on wikipedia, its talk pages, or within any of the official forums such as noticeboards, RfCs, RfAs, and the like, please contact me directly on my talk page and feel free to reference this standing request. I trust your judgment in deciding which topics might be of interest to me, and please keep me informed of any topics in general as well as items specifically involving you personally. --GoRight (talk) 01:11, 24 January 2009 (UTC)

I'm not very active on Wikipedia anymore, so I doubt that will be necessary. ~ UBeR (talk) 20:03, 24 January 2009 (UTC)

A study on how to cover scientific uncertainties/controversiesEdit

Hi. I have emailed you to ask whether you would agree to participate in a short survey on how to cover scientific uncertainties/controversies in articles pertaining to global warming and climate change. If interested, please email me Encyclopaedia21 (talk) 19:21, 31 May 2009 (UTC)

I'm surprised you've found me. I haven't edited here in quite some time. I'll respond to your e-mail. Thanks for the message. Regards, UBeR (talk) 19:30, 31 May 2009 (UTC)

Thank you. Madcoverboy (talk) 03:08, 18 June 2009 (UTC)

There's been plenty of discussion already. I doubt my input will be necessary. ~ UBeR (talk) 15:29, 20 June 2009 (UTC)

An editor has nominated one or more articles which you have created or worked on, for deletion. The nominated article is List of scientists opposing the mainstream scientific assessment of global warming. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also Wikipedia:Notability and "What Wikipedia is not").

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion(s) by adding your comments to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of scientists opposing the mainstream scientific assessment of global warming (3rd nomination). Please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate.

Please note: This is an automatic notification by a bot. I have nothing to do with this article or the deletion nomination, and can't do anything about it. --Erwin85Bot (talk) 01:28, 23 October 2009 (UTC)

Is There Any Chance of Getting Some Balance in the Global Warming Article?Edit

I have tried to put a little balance in the first paragraph of the Global Warming article. Anyone reading this would be left with the impression that AGW is a more solid scientific theory than Newton's Laws of Motion. I had added the following:

"However, a number of highly respected scientists dispute the consensus view. Recently, leaked emails reveal that the leading Global Warming scientists, at the Climatic Research Unit, University of East Anglia and elsewhere, have been concealing or altering the raw data, which shows the world has been cooling for the past decade. These Global Warming scientists have admitted in their emails, that none of the climate models can account for this lack of warming in the real world."

Not unsuprisingly, it was deleted a minute later. I note that despite the strong impact of the recent revelations of Climategate, this has failed to find any mention in the article. I have asked for advice on how the editors controlling the article would recommend I rewrite these facts so that they wouldn't object to their inclusion. I received the following reply:

Roughly, the only things that are correct is the name of the university, and that emails have been leaked. The rest is somewhere between obviously wrong and egregiously wrong, with a bit of WP:PEACOCK thrown in for good measure. --Stephan Schulz (talk) 11:11, 9 December 2009 (UTC)

Any suggestions? - Brittainia (talk) 12:14, 9 December 2009 (UTC)

That does not seem appropriate for the intro. You should try to find a place for it somewhere else within the article (and perhaps some better wording would be advised). However, I do think the dissent part should be included in the intro, as it has been for a long time (at least while I was paying attention). Cheers. ~ UBeR (talk) 18:10, 9 December 2009 (UTC)

WikiProject Economics censusEdit

Hello there. Sorry to bother you, but you are (titularly at least) a member of WP:WikiProject Economics, as defined by this category. If you don't know me, I'm a Wikipedia administrator, but an unqualified economist. I enjoy writing about economics, but I'm not very good at it, which is why I would like to support in any way I can the strong body of economists here on Wikipedia. I'm only bothering you because you are probably one of them. Together, I'd like us to establish the future direction of WikiProject Economics, but first, we need to know who we've got to help.

Whatever your area of expertise or level of qualification, if you're interested in helping with the WikiProject (even if only as part of a larger commitment to this wonderful online encyclopedia of ours), would you mind adding your signature to this page? It only takes a second. Thank you.

Message delivered on behalf of User:Jarry1250 by LivingBot.

I'll see what I can do. Cheers ~ UBeR (talk) 14:44, 14 April 2010 (UTC)
Firstly, thank you for signing the census, and an apology if you are one of those editors who dislike posts such as this one for messaging you again in this way. I've now got myself organised and you can opt-out of any future communication at WP:WikiProject Economics/Newsletter. Just remove your name and you won't be bothered again.
Secondly, and most importantly, I would like to invite your comments on the census talk page about the project as a whole. I've given my own personal opinion on a range of topics, but my babbling is essentially worthless without your thoughts - I can't believe for one moment that everyone agrees with me in the slightest! :)
All your comments are welcomed. Thanks, - Jarry1250 [Humorous? Discuss.] 17:58, 21 April 2010 (UTC)

This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
