Dinosaur Training[edit]

An article that you have been involved in editing, Dinosaur Training, has been proposed for deletion. Please look there to see why this is, if you are interested in it not being deleted. Thank you. Dsreyn 01:19, 26 May 2006 (UTC)

Why did you want to change my article?[edit]

It took me time to write it and I would want to work together with people to make it into a great page... Let me know if you would like to help? this is about the page hormonology

A short Esperanzial update[edit]

As you may have gathered, discussions have been raging for about a week on the Esperanza talk page as to the future direction of Esperanza. Some of these are still ongoing and warrant more input (such as the idea to scrap the members list altogether). However, some decisions have been made and the charter has hence been amended. See what happened. Basically, the whole leadership has had a reshuffle, so please review the new, improved charter.

As a result, we are electing 4 people this month. They will replace JoanneB and Pschemp and form a new tranche A, serving until December. Elections will begin on 2006-07-02 and last until 2006-07-09. If you wish to run for a Council position, add your name to the list before 2006-07-02. For more details, see Wikipedia:Esperanza/June 2006 elections.

Thanks and kind, Esperanzial regards, —Celestianpower háblame 16:00, 23 June 2006 (UTC)

Meetup[edit]

I am going to have to pass on tomorrows meet up, Events have ended up conflicting (at last minute), just a reminder that a agenda/ideas is here.

Let me know how it goes. Brian | (Talk) 03:02, 24 June 2006 (UTC)

It's been a while since I logged on, but I just got your invitation. Belated thanks! and sorry I couldn't make it. Best wishes, Petrouchka 03:39, 7 July 2006 (UTC)

Ripper (game)[edit]

Apparently the game is a vehicle for a host of celebrity people who appeared in it. I've added this fact to reflect that. I think this many celebs in one game warrants notability by association. Could you get back to my talk page and let me know what you think. Did you know about the cast when you prodded? - Mgm|(talk) 11:17, 28 June 2006 (UTC)

  • Thanks for the quick reply. - Mgm|(talk) 07:32, 29 June 2006 (UTC)

Redirect[edit]

I noticed that you redirected Miracles on Maple Hill back to the author's page. I know it's barely a stub right now, but I created it (and several others) as part of a succession-box collaboration with Booyabazooka. I'll get back to it, and the others like it, very soon and add more detail.

Go[edit]

Any suggestions for places to learn the rules and basic strategy of Go online? --NEMT 19:26, 15 July 2006 (UTC)

crocodile and tiger[edit]

Hi,

I figured out you erased the crocdile sections in the Bengal tiger article. I have read a lot of documents and a few books which desribe the interaction between tiger and crocodile. One book, the vanishing tiger, says clearly that in the stomach of crocodiles, the recorded contents are leopards, deer and other animals, no tiger at all, and it also says crocodiles often dispute tiger's kill. Early this year, I watched a documentary film on Discovery channel about tiger, in which there is a scene where a tigress devoured a disputing, large crocodile. The observers just concluded one thing: sometimes a crocodile makes mistakes stealing the tiger's kill, and it proves fatal to the reptile. In my country, crocdiles and tigers coexist too, and the tiger sometimes kills the reptile when it's short of food. So I just added it to the articles, it's not something of personal opinion.

Weight training[edit]

Response I only removed several links because the article had numerous references to the same article it was just kinda overdone to me. I can see the importance of the article as it was not totally deleted just reduced in number. I would assume if someone went to the page one time why would you need the same link numerous times if it shows the same content. This is why it was reduced in number. I just did a count of the times www dot physsportsmed dot com/ is on the page 16 times You tell me when enough is enough and it doesn't turn into spam....Thanks..--Cleanupman 13:44, 26 July 2006 (UTC)


Note that there is a move to merge Strength training and Weight trianing. As a contributor to the pages, your input is solicited. Please see Talk:Strength Training. WLU 18:57, 22 October 2006 (UTC)

I've finished as much of the merger of weight training as possible, I'd love comments. Mostly what I did was take out the info that was duplicated in strength training and tried to highlight how weight training differs from the other types of strength training. Help! WLU 02:06, 21 December 2006 (UTC)

Too many pictures[edit]

Weight training exercises

I have no problem with the model pictures.

There are just too many of them the page takes over 5 minutes to download on dialup this is not acceptable.

Please edit the pictures ok or I will ask an admin too. The page is just too large to download and useless to anybody using dialup. You did a great job just to many images ok.

Please edit as many as you can the size and speed of download can be checked here right now it is so big it can't be checked.

After deleting some please check the download time here ok. Thanks have a Blessed Day

Website download speed--Supplements 01:03, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

  • Wonderful job thanks looks really good.--Supplements 13:28, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

August Esperanza Newsletter[edit]

Program Feature: To-Do List
The Esperanza To-Do List is a place where you may list any request, big or small, for assistance. If you need help with archiving your usertalk, for example, all you need to do is list it here and somebody will help you out. Likewise, if you need help with some area of editing on Wikipedia, list it here! Again, any matter, trivial or not, can be placed on this page. However, all matters listed on this page must not be of an argumentative nature. You do not need to be a member of Esperanza (or this program) to place or fulfill requests on this page. If you don't have any requests, consider coming by and fulfilling a few! This program has not been very active, but has lots of potential!
What's New?
In order to help proposed programs become specific enough to make into full-fledged programs, the In development section of the proposals page has been created. Proposals that are promising, but need to be organized in more detail are listed here. Please take a look at what is there, and help the proposals turn into programs.
To improve both the layout and text of the front page, in an attempt to clarify the image of Esperanza, the front page is going to have some redesigning take place. Please take your creative minds to Wikipedia:Esperanza/Front page redesign to brainstorm good ideas.
Many thanks to MiszaBot, courtesy of Misza13, for delivering the newsletter.
  1. In order to make sure all users who join Esperanza are welcomed, a list of volunteers who are willing to welcome new Esperanzians is at Wikipedia:Esperanza/Members#Esperanza_welcomers. Please add yourself if you are interested; we want to make sure all new Esperanza members are welcomed!
  2. The In development section of the proposals page has been created.
  3. Proposals page: Some proposals have been moved to the aforementioned "In development" section, some have been left as a proposal, and others have been archived. For those proposals that were a good idea but didn't necessarily constitute a program, General Esperanzial Actions has been created.
  4. Two small pieces of charter reform will be decided on in a straw poll at Wikipedia talk:Esperanza/Governance. One involves filling the position of any councillors who may leave, the other involves reforming the charter.
  5. Until cooperation with the Kindness Campaign is better defined, it remains as a proposed program.
  6. There is a page for discussing the front page redesign.

Although having the newsletter appear on everyone's userpage is desired, this may not be ideal for everyone. If, in the future, you wish to receive a link to the newsletter, rather than the newsletter itself, you may add yourself to Wikipedia:Esperanza/Newsletter/Opt Out List.

September Esperanza Newsletter[edit]

Program Feature: Barnstar Brigade
Here in Wikipedia there are hundreds of wikipedians whose work and efforts go unappreciated. One occasionally comes across editors who have thousands of good edits, but because they may not get around as much as others, their contributions and hard work often go unnoticed. As Esperanzians we can help to make people feel appreciated, be it by some kind words or the awarding of a Barnstar. This is where the Barnstar Brigade comes in. The object of this program is to seek out the people which deserve a Barnstar, and help them feel appreciated. With your help, we can recognize more dedicated editors!
What's New?
September elections are upon us! Anyone wishing to be a part of the Advisory Council may list themselves as a candidate from 18 September until 24 September, with the voting taking place from 25 September to 30 September. Those who wish to help with the election staff should also list themselves!
Appreciation Week, a program currently in development, now has its own subpage! Share your good ideas on how to make it awesome there!
The Esperanza front page has been redesigned! Many thanks to all who worked hard on it.
Many thanks to MiszaBot, courtesy of Misza13, for delivering the newsletter.
  1. The proposals page has been updated, with some proposals being archived.
  2. Since the program in development Appretiaion week is getting lots of good ideas, it now has its own subpage.
  3. The September 2006 Council elections will open for nominations on 18 September 2006. The voting will run from 25 September 2006 until 30 September 2006. If you wish to be a candidate or a member of the elections staff, please list yourself!
  4. The new Esperanza front page design has but put up - many thanks to all who worked on it!
  5. TangoTango has written a script for a bot that will list new members of Esperanza, which will help those who welcome new Esperanzains greatly!

November Esperanza Newsletter[edit]

Program Feature: Admin Coaching (needs coaches!)
Admin Coaching needs coaches!!! If you are an administrator, or even a generally experienced user, do consider signing up to be a coach.

Admin Coaching, now being coordinated by HighwayCello, is a program for people who want help learning some of the more subtle aspects of Wikipedia policy and culture. People are matched with experienced users who are willing to offer coaching. The program is designed for people who have figured out the basics of editing articles; they're not newcomers any more, but they might want some help in learning new roles. In this way, Esperanza would help keep hope alive for Wikipedia because we would always be grooming the next generation of admins.

What's New?
The Tutorial Drive is a new Esperanza program! In an effort to make complicated processes on Wikipedia easier for everyone, Esperanza working to create and compile a list of tutorials about processes here on Wikipedia. Consider writing one!
A discussion on how Esperanza relates to the encyclopedia has been started; please add your thoughts.
Many thanks to MiszaBot, courtesy of Misza13, for delivering the newsletter.
  • The list of proposed programs has been updated, with some proposals being archived.
  • There is now a new program: the Tutorial Drive! Consider writing a tutorial on something you are good at doing on Wikipedia.
  • The suggestion of adding a cohesive look to all the Esperanza pages is being considered; join the discussion if you are interested!
  • In order to make a useful interlanguage welcome template, those involved in translation projects will be asked what English Wikipedia policies are most important and confusing to editors coming from other language Wikipedias.
  • A discussion of Esperanza's role in Wikipedia is being held, with all thoughts of all Esperanzians wanted!
  • Shreshth91 informed everyone that he will be leaving the Esperanza council as life is rather busy; his spot will be filled by the runner up from the last election, HighwayCello.

Unspecified source for Image:Smith machine.GIF[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Smith machine.GIF. I notice the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear.

Fair use rationale for Image:KonTiki.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:KonTiki.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. Project FMF (talk) 00:42, 16 February 2008 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:BodyForLife.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:BodyForLife.jpg. You've indicated that the image meets Wikipedia's criteria for non-free content, but there is no explanation of why it meets those criteria. Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. If you have any questions, please post them at Wikipedia:Media copyright questions.

Thank you for your cooperation. NOTE: once you correct this, please remove the tag from the image's page. STBotI (talk) 10:07, 22 May 2008 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:Sollo02.jpg)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Sollo02.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. 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 all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 12:07, 4 June 2008 (UTC)
