Mr. Spade,

A list of Muslim scholars of Islamic Studies are interested in cleaning up the Islam pages, little by little. Some of us are professors and specialists and some are graduate students. We would like to pursue it as a group, each member volunteering to work on one article at a time as we can.

Is there some special procedure since many of these pages are under dispute? We have noticed that many of the entries are far from scholarly, let alone nuetral. Can you give us some guidance that I can pass along to the group before we get started?

Thank you,

Laury Silvers Assistant Professor of Religion Skidmore College

A newly-hatched marginated tortoise
Roundhay Garden Scene is a short silent actuality film recorded by French inventor Louis Le Prince on 14 October 1888, filmed in Roundhay, Leeds, in the north of England. The footage is believed to be the oldest surviving film in existence. The footage features Louis's son Adolphe Le Prince, mother-in law Sarah Whitley, father-in-law Joseph Whitley, and Annie Hartley, believed to be a family friend, in the garden of Oakwood Grange, the Whitleys' home, leisurely walking around the garden of the premises. This digital remastered version of the film contains 52 frames and is played back at a modern cinematographic frame rate, yielding a running time of 2.11 seconds. Adolphe Le Prince stated, however, that the film was originally shot at 12 frames per second, which would result in a duration of 4.33 seconds.Film credit: Louis Le Prince

Thanks for the suggestions[edit]

Yes I'm new here. Usually I learn just enough to do what is needed, and since the chlamydial definitions needed updating, here I am. I may be back with questions at some point.

Some of the definitions I'm adding are rather abbreviated. I will encourage some of my colleagues to expand on these entries.

Thanks[edit]

Thanks,

It was good to add a word (intracultural), I am working towards my PhD so hope I can add a short article in the future,

Help[edit]

Sam, can you help me. See what is happening in Ayyavazhi related article. See the talk page of Ayyavazhi Vaikundar etc.. - Vaikunda Raja 22:17, 12 June 2006 (UTC)

It looks like someone is posting anti-ayyavazhai information in the article. This might be ok, if they did it neutrally, but they did not. Be very careful not to have a fight, even if they are rude. Wikipedia has a very bad system for problems like this. The answer is to always be polite and respectful, and bring lots of friends to help.
I no longer edit articles, but am always willing to give advice to friends. You may want to use email, it might be easier to find me there. Sam Spade 00:48, 15 June 2006 (UTC)

I need an advocate and help with mediation[edit]

Greetings,

I need an advocate who will walk me through the mediation process.

I am trying to get the following added to the Many Worlds Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics. Max Tegark is a renown physicist and a PhD profressor of cosmology at MIT. He agrees with my addition.

I am having problem with an editor by the name of Lethe who follows me around Wikipedia reverting all my edits without commentary.

I have tried reasoning with him on discussion pages, but he refuses to read what I write.

Advantages of MWI

If Hugh Everett's theory was just another interpretation of Quantum Mechanics it would have no followers, especially since it proposes the existence of countless other universes which theoretically can never be observed. Because it is not falsifiable it seemingly violates Popper's criteria for a good scientific theory. The reason it has so many adherents is because it offers numerous advantages over the Copenhagen Interpretation, among which are the following:

1. Quantum mechanics becomes a deterministic theory making it more compatible with the theory of relativity and all other physics theory to date which are all deterministic. The Copenhagen Interpretation introduced indeterminacy and randomness into science. Aside from the Copenhagen Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics there is no scientific theory that includes indeterminacy or randomness. Einstein particularly objected to this aspect of the Copenhagen Interpretation. In response to it, he said, "God does not play dice with the universe."

2. It eliminates the "measurement problem."

3. It eliminates Von Neumann's "boundary problem": where to draw the line between the micro world where quantum mechanics applies, and the macro world where it does not. Shortly before his death in 1953, Albert Einstein wrote: "Like the moon has a definite position whether or not we look at the moon, the same must also hold for the atomic objects, as there is no sharp distinction possible between these and macroscopic objects."

4. It eliminates the special place for an observer and human consciousness.

5. It restores objective reality of the universe between measurements. Shortly before his death, Albert Einstein also wrote: "Observation cannot CREATE an element of reality like a position, there must be something contained in the complete description of physical reality which corresponds to the possibility of observing a position, already before the observation has been actually made."

6. The wave-particle duality paradox evaporates. It simply and naturally explains the double-slit experiment. Richard Feynman said, "[the double-slit experiment] has in it the heart of quantum mechanics. In reality it contains the only mystery." David Deutcsh wrote: ". . . the argument for the many worlds was won with the double-slit experiment."

7. Schrodinger's Cat paradox evaporates.

It seems Einstein's main objections with quantum mechanics had more to do with the Copenhagen Interpretation, than with quantum mechanics itself. While MWI does not quite generate the kinds of worlds necessary to justify the anthropic principle, it is a step on the way to Stephen Hawking's No Boundary Proposal and Max Tegmark's All Universe Hypothesis which do justify the anthropic principle.

Sorry, but I am a bad choice. I suggest you simply avoid conflict, as the wiki-court process is broken and biased. It is very unlikely to be arewarding experience to engage in. 19:30, 17 June 2006 (UTC)

Requesting your assistance[edit]

This editor has a problem accepting complaints and criticism on his talk page; he thinks he owns his talk page and has the right to delete them. He is a notorious POV-pusher throughout all articles he is fixated with. Common "hot buttons" are words like "Right" and "Conservative", but may entail a slew of tangential disputes. See [2] and User talk:Lord Loxley#Histrionic? for my attempt to warn him about having a "mission" on the Wikipedia, because I have noticed off and on, just how obsessed his article editing has been with being a vigilante for the Left and trying to portray the Right as wrong. I'll bet all that I have that most of the edits by him are politicised; I believe he should see this here: [3]. Lord Loxley 14:16, 3 July 2006 (UTC)

Sorry, I'm no longer active, mainly because of systemic bias on the part of wikipedia's movers and shakers. My advice is to avoid conflict and focus on improving obscure pages and making solid, reliable friends. Sam Spade 18:12, 4 July 2006 (UTC)

I still don't understand what the problem was. Of course you don't expect me to just say "oh, it's nothing" after making such obvious threats by suggesting you supposedly know my identity. The only resolution i can accept at this moment for this vehement attacks is a face to face meeting to iron out this problem (that should not be a problem for you as you seem very eager to that). however, current circumstances render this meeting very unlikely to occur in the near future and even it will, i'm afraid you won't survive it. And also i would like to know if you would be that brave if i'd be standing next to you as you type, pluck your teeth and use them to enhance your keyboard. -- 89.32.1.82 11:33, 24 July 2006 (UTC)

Unspecified source for Image:Everclear.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Everclear.jpg. I notice the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you have not created this file yourself, then there needs to be a justification explaining why we have the right to use it on Wikipedia (see copyright tagging below). If you did not create the file yourself, then you need to specify where it was found, i.e., in most cases link to the website where it was taken from, and the terms of use for content from that page.

If the file also doesn't have a copyright tag, then one should be added. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Fair use, use a tag such as {{Non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may 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. howch e ng {chat} 17:06, 27 July 2006 (UTC)

Rogue administrators[edit]

Sam, it's too bad you are not editing anymore. Another editor, Vaikunda Raja, who wrote such nice articles on ayyavazhi quit too. He said: "I've stopped editing on english wikipedia a month back. Some problems there for me. One by one a bunch of editors find fault with me. They don't like cross referencing Ayyavazhi to other articles.Generally I show interest in Ayyavazhi related works. They don't like that. May be mistakes on my side. But in many articles we discussed and solved. But once they warned that they will take administrative actions against me. Was I am a criminal to have administrative actions taken against me? I feel hurt. I remember User Sam Spade saying again and again, "in midst of any problem don't break friendship". I quit simply.

Any way I really thank you and Sam for a long term help in wikipedia. Though my wiki experience is some what worried me in the end I will not forget you two, friends. Thank you very much beyond words."

Too bad.

Raj2004 01:19, 31 August 2006 (UTC)

That is how things are going here, because the people at the top have no social sense, no understanding of training or management. People had problems with Vaikunda Raja because he donated lots of time and effort. They didn't like him putting in all that hard work, and instead of helping him, they prefered to erase what he had done (many, many times). It was not a matter of him being rude, or inventing false stories. He simply had imperfect english. Instead of putting in a bit of work to make minor changes to his articles, they prefered to delete them, and the links tothem, so that they won't be of good to anyone. That is exactly the sort of ignorant short sidedness that disgusted me with the administrators here. If you are not in their circle of friends, you have no power here, no matter how hard you work or how much you do (and Vaikunda Raja did ALOT of good work).
The wikipedia might be a source of information worth reading sometimes, but it does not seem to be a place worth investing time or money in. These petty tyrants and the system which enables and supports them (instead of common users) see's to that.
It is sad really, because the obscure articles such as Vaikunda wrote are what makes the wikipedia worth reading. They seem to be killing themselves slowly, driving off generous and friendly people like Vaikunda, and encouraging those (like User:Mel Etitis) who bully them.
I consider you both friends, and am glad to hear from you any time. I simply refuse to spend time and effort benefiting such a disreputable project as this one.
p.s. please send an email sometime.
Sam Spade 13:26, 31 August 2006 (UTC)

Sam, thanks for your reply. Sad but true. It's too bad that excellent contributors like you and Vaikunda Raja had to quit. we all have differences of opinion but just because it's not your point of view, we, like you and I, respect other's opinions so long as it is verifiable. Likewise, I consider you and Raja my friends. Please feel free to e-mail me at rajunyc2003-sivah@yahoo.com

Thanks, Raj2004 00:03, 1 September 2006 (UTC)

I may end up regretting this....[edit]

A comment you made a couple years back is being discussed on Talk:Anarchism under the title "Failed Featured Article". I would appreciate if you could maybe check it out and explain what your objection was at the time more fully, and perhaps say what you think is wrong or right with the article now. Thanks.

Suggestion[edit]

I suggest that you leave a message on either your user page and/or your user talk page to indicate that you're no longer active. 03:39, 17 September 2006 (UTC)

I suggest that you not be no longer active - I've always said you're a good editor, and your presence is a plus for the project. Or, if you've had it with the 'pedia, we could always use a hand on Wiktionary or Wikiquote, where the controversies are much less... controversial. Cheers! bd2412 T 09:06, 17 September 2006 (UTC)

Anyone who needs to know can pay attention to me and find out, I'm not hard to get ahold of or talk to. As far as volunteerism, I'm doing other things now because I don't like the way things are run here. I am considering working on Larry Sanger's new wiki-project tho, and I encourage others who care about encyclopedias or research to find other places to do it. The wikipedia is rotten to its core, with things steadilly declining in regards to training and affirmation of constructive contributors. Forks and other alternate projects are the way to salvage what is good, and leave the mess. Sam Spade 11:38, 18 September 2006 (UTC)

Vote[edit]

I voted for: alex756 (Alex T. Roshuk, Esq.), Arno Lagrange, Cimon Avaro (Jussi-Ville Heiskanen), Evrik (Bruce Andersen), Improv (Pat Gunn), Kim Bruning, Linuxbeak (Alex Schenck), Oscar (Oscar van Dillen), Ross.Hedvicek (Ross Hedvicek), Zuirdj (Juan David Ruiz)

Some of those people I doubt would make good representatives. Others I don't know who they are. The important thing is that people like Kelly Martin are removed from positions of power. The wikipedia has alot of potential, but it needs a serious trimming if it is to remain relevant. Sam Spade 22:44, 20 September 2006 (UTC)

Wikipedia:WikiProject Spiritual Fauna[edit]

This is to advise you that the project page you created above is being considered for deletion. Please follow the links for the details. Thank you. Badbilltucker 23:12, 21 September 2006 (UTC)

It should probably be deleted, being that it genereated no interest and I am no longer editing. Of course it would be nice if someone wanted to revive it, but that seems unlikely. Sam Spade 08:17, 22 September 2006 (UTC)

Advice on conflict resolution[edit]

  • Mr. Spade,
My apologies for disturbing you, however I was wondering if you could give me some advice regarding a dispute over an image of mobster James "Buddy" McLean I recently uploaded in September. An anonymous user has recently claimed this image, which I had photographed and uploaded from T.J. English's 2005 book Paddy Whacked: The Untold Story of the Irish-American Gangster, belongs to the website http://whiteyworld.com. While I concede the two photographs are similar, I believe this user is mistaken that they are in fact the same photos.
The image in question, as stated in the book, is a photograph belonging to the Boston Police Department (which as far as I am aware falls into public domain) and is used under Wikipedia's fair use policies as "a historically significant photo of a famous individual" and "used only for informational purposes". My view is, as far as I can tell, the photo was taken indoors as I note ceiling tiles and a doorway to the far right in the background. However, the user continues to insist the whiteysworld photo is taken outdoors (noting the trees and street corner) and the present one are from the same photo and has claimed to be a copyright violation. I'm not sure exactly what I should do at this point. While I feel the user is well within his or her rights, I would rather avoid an argument as this conversation seems to be sliding in that direction. MadMax 20:23, 24 September 2006 (UTC)

You are quite right to want to avoid an argument, they rarely end up improving matters. The best thing to do in situations like this is to retreat once it becomes clear you cannot achieve amiable resolution. The more heated things become the less pleasent your editing experience here will be, and the more likely wikipedia policy processes are to become involved. Trust me, you want nothing to do with the conflict resolution processes here, they are especially bad. Much like in the court system of many nations, the process itself is often the punishment. I strongly suggest that you find something more enjoyable to do than argue with this unknown person about that image. Worst case scenario the wikipedia looses out on a single photograph. If you keep arguing w this person however, you may end up wasting valuable hours, hours you can never get back ;)

I'd be willing to step in and help you directly, but I am no longer editing. Sorry about that,

Sam Spade 07:25, 25 September 2006 (UTC)

  • I'm sorry to hear about that Mr. Spade. I'm certainly grateful for the advice however. Thanks again. MadMax 01:01, 27 September 2006 (UTC)

Article breaking apart[edit]

Hi Mr. Spade,

I noticed on the Association of Mergist Wikipedians page that you're a mergist and an inclusionist. I have been writing an article about the letter t, but editors have begun to break it up into nonsensical entries, like Abbreviations and symbols of T. So, I was wondering if you could do me a huge favor and possibly give your opinion here? If you could, I would be greatly in your debt.

Best wishes,

Macaw 54 06:25, 28 September 2006 (UTC)

Sorry, I'm no longer editing and am uncertain what opinion I might have about the T article if I was... Good luck, my advice is to find another page to edit, wiki-debates tend not to be productive, due to mismanagement from admins/the cabal. Sam Spade 14:41, 2 October 2006 (UTC)

Danish "Vide"[edit]

I am the author of the word "videography" http://videographyblog.com

As such I have spent much of the past 35 years studying the archaic use of the root vid and it's Greek & Latin derivatives. At a recent conference on Language & Genes at the University of California Santa Barbara, I came across a new book by University of Cambridge entitled "Phylogenetic methods and the prehistory of languages". In the book there was a chart showing that of all the European language trees the Danish was the only one that did not make "vide" archaic.

Could you please advise me as to the meaning and roots of "vide" in Danish.

Thank you,

Bob Kiger Oceanside, CA, USA

Sad you're gone[edit]

Hey, Sam Spade. I always liked Dashiell Hammett and you seemed to carry some of the charme that I associated with his stories. You were the one who welcomed me to Wikipedia and sometimes I checked your page to see what you were doing. I saw you were doing a lot of editing, you were involved in harsh disputes and in a lot of mediations, and were always helping others. I am a bit sad that you're gone. Maybe, if you find some other thing which is worthwhile, you could post it on your user page. --Ben T/C 21:02, 19 October 2006 (UTC)

Same message? - crz crztalk 00:12, 11 December 2006 (UTC)
Sorry, Sam. I've reblocked you. I saw your message, and saw that according to your block log, you were not blocked. I then saw the end of your message, where you gave the IP. The IP had a clean block log, and I assumed that this block was therefore an autoblock resulting from the block of a logged-on user. I undid it. I then saw that it was a checkuser block placed by Essjay. I don't feel I have the right to undo a checkuser block, so I have, with reluctance, reblocked. I'm sorry about that, because it's probably more frustrating for you than if I hadn't blocked in the first place. I should have looked more carefully at the notice on your page. Also, I wasn't sure how long Essjay's block was for, so I blocked the IP for 48 hours. I'll post a message to Essjay immediately, asking him to consider unblocking because of collateral damage, but since it is a checkuser block, I'd rather the decision came from him. Sorry again.

Thanks for your advice RE: Compton Pirus.[edit]

I'll read up on those links you gave me, and actually I'll admit that I was hurried and tired last night when I deleted that article. In retrospect I realize that my action was not productive towards free speach or a fair rebuttal to my disatisfaction with the article. I'm not a savvy techy, and although I have learned a lot about the editing and contibution tecniques in Wikipedia, I still have lots to learn. The article needs clarification or removal, but deleting the whole thing was not the way to do it. Thanks again, and have a great day. -Chas. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Thunderlippps (talkcontribs) 03:16, 30 January 2007 (UTC).

Historical Accuracy[edit]

In finally reading my cousins account of my grandmonthers travels during this time period, I must beg of you all not to take this all to literally.

Sam, hello,

Regarding your editing my August 1st post on Garrison Keillor, you listed my post as criticism. Prior to posting, I reviewed the Wikipedia police on neutrality and the entire page for Keillor. My post, turned out to be the best example of posting neutrality for his entire page; no accusation is made, without verifiable proof, illustrated by my posting the District Court's case numbers and a link to the Court's web site; all courts mandate neutrality, in allegation form, in pleadings submitted by all parties; accordingly, instead of my posting:

"That G***D*** GARRISON KEILLOR IS A F****** FED AND HE SHAFTED ME!!!!

I posted only an verifiable accusation. Please access my web presence at:

Dear Sam Spade / Julius Sahara,

This is Steve Le Feuvre (the is my real name, no need to use any other), and I notice that you are continually changing my entries for The Prince of Wales School to Nairobi School and putting re-directs in place on the pretext that it's not a good idea to have duplicate information.

I fully appreciate the fact that the name of the Prince of Wales School changed in 1965 to Nairobi School, and indeed I was at the school when it was using the new name. However, many many former pupils knew the school as the Prince of Wales School and were very proud to be associated with it. I am the Webmaster of the Old Cambrian Society which is for former pupils and staff of the school, so I know the feelings run very high. Also, there is strong feeling coming from recently graduated students and current students to be linked with the past and the old name.

Therefore, could you please let this one lie and allow the two articles on the school to co-exist under the two separate names? It means so much to my members (both young and old, past and current) to see the name as it was, as well as the new name article. I plan in the next month of so to extend the article(s) about the school to give a lot more history from the early days right through to the present, and I do not wish to have the articles affected in any way. You will see that just yesterday I posted some photos of the magnificent school buildings. Again, I plan to publish more photos in due course.

Just as an aside, precendents for keeping old names on the Wikipedia system for historical purposes are numerous: e.g. Tanganyika, British East Africa, German East Africa, British Somaliland, Burma, Rhodesia, Persia, Guadalcanal, etc.

Regards

Steve Le Feuvre

A tag has been placed on Image:Klemig - life unworthy of life.jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section I6 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a non-free image with no fair use rationale.

Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.   — Jeff G.

Disputed fair use rationale for Image:Ensiferum Iron.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Ensiferum Iron.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) 07:17, 1 January 2008 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Cultural group[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Cultural group has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Article is, at best, a definition, more suited to Wiktionary, contains no references, and is extremely vague. Unless there is evidence that this is a robust concept in sociology or some other discipline that can be backed up by multiple, reliable, high quality sources, this should be deleted.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. The speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. Qwyrxian (talk) 04:16, 31 May 2011 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. 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.

Speedy deletion nomination of Wotansvolk[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Wotansvolk requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person, a group of people, an individual animal, an organization (band, club, company, etc.), web content, or an organized event, but it does not credibly indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator.

Proposed deletion of Will Robinson[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Will Robinson has been proposed for deletion because it appears to have no references. Under Wikipedia policy, this biography of a living person will be deleted after seven days unless it has at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article.

If you created the article, please don't be offended. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Referencing for beginners, or ask at the help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp/dated}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within seven days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one. Domdeparis (talk) 16:24, 22 May 2017 (UTC)
