Hello, welcome to Wikipedia. Here's some tips:

Other useful pages are: how to edit, how to write a great article, naming conventions, manual of style and the Wikipedia policies.

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! Angela. 08:49, Mar 9, 2004 (UTC)

I added a bit to the article, and I'm considering doing some more work to it. See the changes and tell me what you think. Mike H 02:57, Sep 9, 2004 (UTC)

I saw your post about the AW introductions and announcements at WoST. Personally, I don't think this needs to be its own article, but when I put Another World (TV series) through FAC in June, people insisted that things that were "too trivial" go to their own articles. :-/ Mike H 18:40, Oct 6, 2004 (UTC)

Cleanup[edit]

Please don't delete Cleanup headers until the article is actually cleaned up. RickK 06:20, Oct 13, 2004 (UTC)

SFT[edit]

You know those '82 episodes at WoST? Maybe you can give me a faster answer. You know the music blaring in Wendy's apartment in the seventh segment? Who sings that song, and what's it called? I really like that song and want to download it. Mike H 04:59, Nov 1, 2004 (UTC)

Templates[edit]

Greetings! Most templates can be edited by going to the page Template:XXXX where "XXXX" is the name of the template. To explain it better using an example, if you wanted to edit the content of {{Bowl Games}}, you would go to the page Template:Bowl Games. In this same manner, you can create a new template by creating a new article in the Template: namespace, like Template:Burglflikl. You can find some more information on this at Wikipedia:Template messages. RADICALBENDER 17:56, Dec 5, 2004 (UTC)

Article Licensing[edit]

Hi, I've started a drive to get users to multi-license all of their contributions that they've made to either (1) all U.S. state, county, and city articles or (2) all articles, using the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike (CC-by-sa) v1.0 and v2.0 Licenses or into the public domain if they prefer. The CC-by-sa license is a true free documentation license that is similar to Wikipedia's license, the GFDL, but it allows other projects, such as WikiTravel, to use our articles. Since you are among the top 1000 Wikipedians by edits, I was wondering if you would be willing to multi-license all of your contributions or at minimum those on the geographic articles. Over 90% of people asked have agreed. For More Information:

To allow us to track those users who muli-license their contributions, many users copy and paste the "{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}" template into their user page, but there are other options at Template messages/User namespace. The following examples could also copied and pasted into your user page:

Option 1
I agree to [[Wikipedia:Multi-licensing|multi-license]] all my contributions, with the exception of my user pages, as described below:
{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}

OR

Option 2
I agree to [[Wikipedia:Multi-licensing|multi-license]] all my contributions to any [[U.S. state]], county, or city article as described below:
{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}

Or if you wanted to place your work into the public domain, you could replace "{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}" with "{{MultiLicensePD}}". If you only prefer using the GFDL, I would like to know that too. Please let me know what you think at my talk page. It's important to know either way so no one keeps asking. -- Ram-Man (comment| talk)

Andrew Lloyd Webber[edit]

From your edits to the Phantom of the Opera entry, it is apparent that you mistakenly believe that Andrew Lloyd Webber's last name is simply Webber, which it is not. His last name is Lloyd Webber, the same as his brother, cellist Julian Lloyd Webber. The FinalWord 21:12, 30 Dec 2004 (UTC)

Rock opera[edit]

Hi, I have just reverted your inclusion of Rock Opera in the opera genres template and I would like to explain why I had to do this. The Opera project recently discussed the issue of Rock Opera at some length and the majority were against including it. The list at present is a short one, not all genres are included, only the more important ones. I trust that explains why rock opera is not there.

About Dune (film)[edit]

Hello, i recently changed one of the changes you made, about the Dune film. Much of the article is in fact devoted into debunking the rumour that there was a 4-hours director cut of the film that was never shownd, when in reality this cut never actually existed to begin with, the thing that comes close to it was the workprint cut. I encourage you to read the whole "Production" section of the article.

Bond Soundtrack[edit]

Please do not vandalize. Thank you.

Names[edit]

1. The Wikipedia convention (indeed, the convention for all English-language reference works) is to give the English version of the name (the article title) first, and the non-English form second. Please don't continue your extensive attempts to change this.

Hello. Please don't forget to provide an edit summary. Thanks, and happy editing.

The Zoot Cat[edit]

I am not sure where you got your information from, but as far as I've always been aware, the cartoon has always been called "The Zoot Cat" and not simply "Zoot Cat." Every book or website I've looked at on the cartoon has "The" in the title, and even the cartoon's title card (which is on the page!) contains the word "the" on it, but if you can find something that suggests otherwise, I'd like to see it. MartinP1983 22:20, 13 May 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

If you look closely at the main titles of said cartoon, Zoot Cat is in quotation marks, so "Zoot Cat" would be an official title. Of course, you can refer to it as "the Zoot Cat" too. Hiphats 02:08, 14 May 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of The First Christmas: The Story of the First Christmas Snow, and it appears to be very similar to another wikipedia page: The Story of the First Christmas Snow. It is possible that you have accidentally duplicated contents, or made an error while creating the page— you might want to look at the pages and see if that is the case.

This message was placed automatically, and it is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article and it would be appreciated if you could drop a note on the maintainer's talk page.

February 2008[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia, adding content without citing a reliable source, as you did to Legend (film), is not consistent with our policy of verifiability.

Cut and paste moves[edit]

Hello, Hiphats. I came across Living in the Past (album), which you had moved back in March from the un-disambiguated page title. In the future, please use the "move" button at the top of the page to move articles, not through cut and paste. The reason for this is that the page histories are severed from the article in cut and paste moves, which invalidates the GDFL (because the GDFL requires all contributors to be given credit, which is accomplished through the page history). I just grafted the old history onto the new version of the page; are there any other pages you've moved this way? If so, just let me know, and I'll fix them. If there's a page that needs to be moved, and you can't move it yourself (for example, if there's a redirect with more than one edit), please list it at Wikipedia:Requested moves, where an admin can move it for you. If you have any questions, feel free to ask me, either here or on my talk page. Thanks. Parsecboy (talk) 16:09, 12 June 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello, Hiphats!

In September, you made this edit to Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, where you added the text "although today the Buena Vista name is used only for video and DVD distribution through certain divisions of Disney's home entertainment unit (such as Miramax)."

At first I parsed this as saying that only certain divisions of Disney use the name Buena Vista, and that Miramax was one such division. But thinking more closely, I think you meant that some divisions of Disney only use the Buena Vista name for home entertainment, and not for theatrical releases, and that Miramx was such an example. Is the second parsing correct?

Either way, I don't quite see why this text belongs here. It might belong in the Walt Disney Home Entertainment article, but even there, since the Buena Vista name is deprecated, it seems like it is in need of revision. Could you please clarify your intent?

Queen of Jordan "spin-off"[edit]

From my perspective, it seemed to be a single episode stunt immersing 30 Rock into the fictional "Queen of Jordan" show that had been referenced in previous episodes. It would hardly be the first time the opening credits of a TV show had been skipped or altered for the sake of a "special episode". You need reliable sources to verify independently that a spin off is in any way being considered. See this info on a Bones spin off, and how well documented it is. Even the one line mentioning a possible spin off to The Closer, speculation as it is to this point, is referenced by an independent source. You need something other than your interpretation to call this a spin-off. You especially need an independent confirmation from NBC or Tina Fey if you're going to use a word like "official".

Schulz's final wishes[edit]

I have seen you making many edits on Peanuts-related articles of late, and I appreciate the enthusiasm and willing to be involved. However, the edits you are making are without any sources, and are often of dubious accuracy. For example, in the Peanuts article, you added (regarding the current run of Peanuts comic books) "which feature new material by new writers and artists, although in accordance with Schultz's final wish that no new original stories be written by people other than Schultz". As one of the writers of said comic books, I can tell you that we are indeed putting original stories in there. As a Peanuts historian, I have seen nothing that indicates that Schulz (note the spelling, by the way) ever said that no new stories were to be done with the character; he indicated that no new strips should be done, but Peanuts had long had new stories in various forms outside of the strips. So if you have a reliable source that shows that Schulz's wishes went beyond that, I ask you to put that source forward so it can be verified. If not, I ask that you undo your edits in those regards. If there is any of this that you need help with, please let me know! --Nat Gertler (talk) 03:52, 22 July 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Your similar edit on National Football League playoffs has also been reverted. Since at least the 2002 season, the conference championship games have been on a pre-set rotation. During this year, the AFC Championship was already scheduled at 3:00 Eastern, and the NFC Championship at 6:30 Eastern, regardless of the matchups. Even this press release from the NFL, dated December 30, 2013 announcing the wild card and divisional playoffs schedule, states at the bottom that "The AFC (CBS, 3:00 PM ET) and NFC (FOX, 6:30PM ET) Championship Games will be played on Sunday, January 19." (emphasis added).
And check out this press release from December 31, 2012. Again, it announces the wild card and divisional playoffs schedule from last season, but also states at the bottom the times of the championship games (the NFC at 3:00 and AFC at 6:30) -- before the matchups were even known. And if I go further, in the NFL's archive of press releases, I can find similar announcements. As I stated, the league has scheduled the conference championship games in a pre-set rotation since 2002. This was about the time that they moved these games to the later times of 3:00pm and 6:30pm so they are pushed into the primetime hours to get better ratings.[1] Prior to 2002, the conference championship games were scheduled around 12:30 and 4:30.

A tag has been placed on Caidin Film Company 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 an organization or company, but it does not 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 "Click here to 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.  Velella  Velella Talk   21:24, 25 August 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

What did you mean in this edit to Turner Classic Movies by the following?

The current 2020-21 programming season will be extended through April of 2021 (when the 31 Days of Oscar festival will air) due to the current COVID-19 crisis.

TCM doesn't have programming seasons like the broadcast networks, because it's almost entirely dedicated to showing movies, not original programming. Even on the broadcast networks, the 2020-21 programming season would normally be expected to run from September through May, meaning that continuing until April would not be an "extension". --Metropolitan90 (talk) 08:48, 11 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
