Give 'em hell, Terry. --Ed Poor Talk 19:02, 4 January 2010 (EST) Thank you, Vargas Milan --07:12, 1 January 2010

Yes, I have seen your work. Please proceed, and if in doubt post to the articles talk page first, until you get a feel for editing here, plauged as we are by constant vandalism. Dr. Richard Jensen has posted a great deal of material here that he first contributed to Citizendum, so if you have questions about what to include from your previous work, I would suggest posting to his page about that. If you run into difficulty, please let me know. Thanks for asking on how to proceed, and again welcome! --ṬK/Admin/Talk 11:31, 1 January 2010 (EST)

Sorry to have over-reacted

It was simply a nonsensical revert which I found very frustrating considering the work I had put into my edit, and was afraid that the discussion would just end there if I didn't do something back. Which Slayer recording sessions were you at, that's pretty cool! Twitcher 08:13, 13 January 2010 (EST)

Sorry to have missed this. I had an interest in a mixing studio where we did analog to digital transfers, and TV audio to digital in Hollywood. This was back in the late 80's, early 90's when most product was analog, 32 track. We would mix it down to 24 track digital, I believe it was back then, and then to two-track digital. Slayer was unhappy with the drums on a few tracks, and needed some over-dubbing on vocals. --ṬK/Admin/Talk 01:05, 18 January 2010 (EST)

Longstanding (2008) liberal essay

I recently came across the liberal Egalitarian Biblical revisionist essay, on CP no less, which makes a mockery of Biblical interpretation, let alone it not even attempting some balance or acknowledging its opposition, which refutes it: http://www.cbmw.org/Articles. If the manner of hermeneutics which egalitarians employ had been the basis for Christian theology there would have been little that was authoritative about the Bible (and what follows it), which seems to an objective with some. I created a Complementarianism page in response, but what is going on here?Daniel1212 15:08, 18 January 2010 (EST)

It isn't in the essay space, Daniel, so therefore an article. I cannot see that there were ever any comments posted to the article's talk page, nor can I see that it was ever deleted. I am looking at it now, and have asked Andy to do the same. Thanks for the alert! --ṬK/Admin/Talk 15:21, 18 January 2010 (EST)
I meant it was an essay appearing as an article. God willing I could make or edit it as an article presenting both sides, but not treating revisionist reading as equally viable.Daniel1212 16:37, 18 January 2010 (EST)
Look for my email. Thanks! --ṬK/Admin/Talk 16:44, 18 January 2010 (EST)
Go ahead and make the changes you deem fit, Daniel. You are a Godsend! --ṬK/Admin/Talk 18:54, 18 January 2010 (EST)

In honor of Coakley's loss to Brown after Obama campaigned for her

The Thrill is Gone -- "Multiple advisers to President Obama have privately told party officials that they believe Democrat Martha Coakley is going to lose...sources told CNN. [1] Rob Smith 23:26, 18 January 2010 (EST)

I don't want to jinx hi Jinx! the whole deal, but I am betting that Obama and Jimmy Carter are going to have a whole lot more in common soon.... --ṬK/Admin/Talk 23:54, 18 January 2010 (EST)
Yes, but in the mean time America is at war with the Commander In Chief MIA. He got the Nobel Peace Prize for declaring the War on Terror over, only nobody told al-Qeada the war was over. Rob Smith 00:39, 19 January 2010 (EST)

Liberalism template

I see you added Mainstream Media to the liberalism template. Could you move it be in alphabetical order with the rest? I'd do it myself, but it's protected. Thanks! DouglasA 19:21, 20 January 2010 (EST)

Tabloid Reference

Why does the Obama article start with a reference from an on-line tabloid newspaper? I thought CP didn't use National Enquirer style references. --MichaelJB 13:54, 23 January 2010 (EST)

Please be more specific, and provide a link, if you will, so I can readily find exactly what you are talking about. Thanks. --ṬK/Admin/Talk 17:49, 23 January 2010 (EST)
The article for our president, Barack Obama [2] starts with the allegation that his first name is 'Barry'. The source provided, and the very first source of the article, is an opinion piece written by the on-line tabloid newspaper Pravda. [3] Their front page is headlining sex scandals, Nostradamus and shows a gratuitous photo of someone's posterior. It is my understanding that CP does not utilize references from the tabloid press. I could find another acceptable reference if you’d like, but I'd like to make the change myself if I have to do the research.--MichaelJB 18:07, 23 January 2010 (EST)
Is not Pravda a general circulation newspaper from Russia? Compared to U.S. newspapers, most U.K. ones are more tabloid in style, but that doesn't make them like the National Enquirer, does it? --ṬK/Admin/Talk 18:24, 23 January 2010 (EST)
Pravda stopped being the official mouthpiece of the USSR 20 years ago. Nowadays there are many different Pravdas of one sort or another; the on-line version, in my opinion, is mainly tabloid trash. Don't take my word for it, go there yourself. Since the Obama article was once one of your Featured Articles, I assumed that you would want a quality article with reputable references. --MichaelJB 19:41, 23 January 2010 (EST)
"You assume"? You are an editor here as well, right? Posting snotty retorts here will get you just one response from me, MichaelJB, so either make the the proposed changes by substituting the current reference or not. --ṬK/Admin/Talk 20:04, 23 January 2010 (EST)
I didn't make a 'snotty retort' as you call it; I was only trying to help. In the future I will 'presume' instead of 'assume'. I would have made the changes earlier but the article was locked as you very well know and I have seen other editors blocked permanently for daring to make minor changes to the Obama article without the proper authorization. Since the article has been unlocked, someone has added two lunatic fringe references to go along with the tabloid reference. Since editing wars are a good way to get blocked, I shall leave the editing of the 'AKA Barry' factoid to you and the other editor. Happy to be of assistance. --MichaelJB 20:31, 23 January 2010 (EST)
Michael, we are producing a conservative encyclopedia here, not a discussion forum. TK was nice enough to open the article for you because of your complaint about sourcing. All discussion after that is just blathering and a waste of time, which will not be tolerated. Find sources you like or move on to less controversial articles that need attention. Geoff PlourdeComplain! 20:41, 23 January 2010 (EST)

Just FYI, Michael, Geo.plrd is also an Administrator here, and I doubt he (of all people) would have added "lunatic fringe" sources. Of all the Admins here, you really picked the wrong one to insult, IMHO. --ṬK/Admin/Talk 20:45, 23 January 2010 (EST)

Gentlemen: If I knew that I'd receive this much flack about the alleged validity of references, I would have kept my opinions to myself. If the two of you honestly think Pravda is a reputable source for this project, I will no longer argue. Please check my contributions, you will find that this alleged blather was intermingled with edits to the NASA article. I have learned my lesson and will no longer make any suggestions about the quality of the Obama article. --MichaelJB 20:58, 23 January 2010 (EST)
Bite me. I opened the article for you to change the cite, Geo went to it as well and added sources. If I didn't want you to make the change to the Pravda source, would I have unlocked it? Obviously you have learned nothing, and need to get that chip off your shoulder, or leave. --ṬK/Admin/Talk 21:05, 23 January 2010 (EST)

Hi, when you get a chance, could you please check into this page? - http://conservapedia.com/Talk:Danny_gokey It needs a rename (to correct last name to uppercase "G"). Much appreciated - thanks! Taj 19:57, 30 January 2010 (EST)

Merging Articles

First of all, let me say again that I'm sorry for merging articles without permission. However, as you can see here: http://www.conservapedia.com/Category:Merge_candidates there are a lot of articles that someone put a merge tag on and then there's been no further action. With your permission, I'd like to start merging these. I know there are a lot of articles, and it'll be a lot of work, but I think that if we can merge the ones that need to be merged or take the tag off the ones that don't, it'll do a lot to clean up Conservapedia and make it easier to read. I don't want to do anything I shouldn't, though, or to step on anyone's toes, so I'm asking you first if I have permission to do it, and if there are any special rules I should follow when I do it.--Whizkid 00:29, 7 February 2010 (EST)

Thanks for bringing that issue back to my attention. Some of the merge templates were put there by vandals/tricksters, from the few I just looked at. I will give it a good going over later tonight (West Coast) and try to remember to leave you a note about the situation! --ṬK/Admin/Talk 00:51, 7 February 2010 (EST)
On the note of merging, I found this gem. I wasn't sure whether to put the merge, stub (not likely), or delete template on it. It seems like useless information to me, but I wasn't sure if you wanted it deleted or not. -- Jeff W. LauttamusDiscussion 16:59, 7 February 2010 (EST)
Just perfect! Another "contribution" by a vandal site member.....you know one of those who claim they want to help, are not here to mock or do damage. Thanks for noticing, JLauttamus. --ṬK/Admin/Talk 18:57, 7 February 2010 (EST)

I've merged the As and Bs, although I wasn't able to find your notes. I've done them all, with the exception of four of them. "Almost There", "Awake" and "Bion" should, I think, be left unchanged. The first two are albums, and the third is a Greek poet. If If we were to merge all the ancient Greeks into the Ancient Greek article, I think it'll become little more than just a list of names. I wasn't able to figure out how to merge the "Biological Classification" article. As for the "William Blackstone" article, I think the "Sir William Blackstone" article is the one that should be deleted and "William Blackstone" kept. Please let me know what you think.--Whizkid 14:49, 8 February 2010 (EST)

So I can delete all those remaining in the A's and B's? Let me look into your questions and get back to you. --ṬK/Admin/Talk 15:41, 8 February 2010 (EST)
You should be able to delete everything in the A's and B's except for the ones I just mentioned, as well as "Sir William Blackstone". --Whizkid 16:41, 8 February 2010 (EST)

Redirects

Hello. Earlier I was trying to help out by clearing out this. As the actual article page was deleted because it was 'pop culture' I did not think a broken redirect needed to remain. MHarmon 19:23, 14 February 2010 (EST)

Yes, and thanks! That is why is reverted my block within minutes, MHarmon....I thought you might have noticed that. We rarely get anything other than vandals doing lots of edits immediately upon signing up, so most are pretty "trigger happy" at times here. --ṬK/Admin/Talk 20:24, 14 February 2010 (EST)

Category Deletion

"Unauthorized: Unless a person is notable for being Roman Catholic, a Bishop let's say, CP does not classify by race or religion" I suggest then that the Category - Irish-Americans is also deleted as well if this is the case. If the purpose of the encyclopedia is not to divide people by certain races or creeds, then all examples must go. --Composer 18:10, 15 February 2010 (EST)

  • I don't disagree, Composer, it seems superfluous to me. But you should understand that "Irish" isn't a race or religion, but merely classifies people as to country or heritage. I will discuss this with the owner and other Admins, though. If you find more such examples, as to religion or race, please let me know here. --ṬK/Admin/Talk 18:24, 15 February 2010 (EST)
Maybe it should just be by nationality then? Someone born in American is American, someone born in France is French, etc. --Composer 18:28, 15 February 2010 (EST)
Doing that, however, would render the category classification nearly useless. So we stick to Mr. Schlafly's dictum of not labeling someone, for example, "Homosexual" unless they are primarily known for being Gay. --ṬK/Admin/Talk 18:38, 15 February 2010 (EST)
Labels are usually a distraction. What matters is one's open mind, willingness to reason, and faith. That said, we're not slaves to a mindless consistency. I doubt people are going to get offended or unduly distracted by an "Irish-American" category, so I don't see any need to go on a deletion rampage.--Andy Schlafly 21:17, 15 February 2010 (EST)
Well it's up to the site. As for removing my edits - I would argue that Michael Moore's Catholic identity plays a big part in his films. I'm sure you disagree with him 100% but a person's background is not just one thing or the other. It's nuanced. In his latest film he introduced a lot of Christian based arguments from a Catholic perspective. Whether or not one agrees, he is utilizing aspects of the teachings. I would argue that anyone doing this whether they be conservative or liberal should be labeled by their denomination of choice. If someone votes Republican or Democrat, that's important. If someone throws their support behind a religious denomination, that's important. --Composer 00:51, 16 February 2010 (EST)

If that idiot Michael Moore displays a "Catholic identity" it is one of excommunication, Composer. He is pro-abortion, so he is not behind Catholic belief and he is living outside the Body of Christ, condemned to burn in Hell for all eternity. This is an American conservative and Christian project. Please comport yourself accordingly or try Wikipedia. --ṬK/Admin/Talk 03:09, 16 February 2010 (EST)

If you regard him an idiot and not the 'right type of Christian' that's your opinion. The issue is that he identifies himself as a type of Christian. Are we not to acknowledge the labels people put themselves under? It'd make for an interesting criticism in the article to say WHY he's not a Christian despite himself 'claiming' to be one if that is what you're aiming for. Politics and theology are two very different subjects. If he's been officially excommunicated that would be fascinating to hear as well. As for what seems to be a threat I won't be staying here much longer. I am just sharing my opinion respectfully as you have graciously shared your time in explaining your position. This is the wonderful thing about civil discourse, it doesn't have to be personal.

--Composer 07:26, 16 February 2010 (EST)

Civil discourse is indeed wonderful! However since this is a project building a conservative/Christian encyclopedia and not a discussion forum, "debating" in whatever form isn't appropriate. If you can contribute to non-political topics, and stay away from the religious articles not to your agreement, that would be great. But POV changing or pushing isn't accepted. Those who disagree with CP are welcome to make their statements, but are not invited to infinite discussion about it. Your post was great and indeed respectful, right up until you had to snark about a threat. There wasn't any such thing or implication, but there was a frank suggestion. --ṬK/Admin/Talk 08:06, 16 February 2010 (EST)

USMC

Sorry. I tried to create the category, so that it wouldn't be an unused category. But I should have said that in the edit summary.--Whizkid 22:37, 16 February 2010 (EST)

That's okay, it just at the time appeared there was two of them. Did you have a problem creating the cat? --ṬK/Admin/Talk 23:17, 16 February 2010 (EST)
When I created the category, I wasn't sure what to put into the edit box, so I put the tag for the category in it, thinking that would just set up the category. But instead, it made the category a subcategory of itself.--Whizkid 23:30, 16 February 2010 (EST)

Liberal Tricks Revert

Hello. Forgive me for taking so long to get back to you on this but I've been away.

I'd like to know why you removed my question on the "Liberal Tricks" talk page and labeled me as a troll. I've not been here long but I feel I've been doing my little bit to add something to Conservapedia and frankly that was a bit insulting. Why is it trolling to question a poorly worded, laid-out and logically shakey article? --Bobobo 13:21, 23 February 2010 (EST)

As I posted several days ago to your talk page:

Our point of view is American "conservative" and foreigners not accustomed to U.S. politics usually cannot understand our frame of reference. Liberals all over the world do seem to exhibit the same deceit as they do here. Take time to study our various "differences" articles before you judge, I ask of you.

Instead of answering me there, as is wiki custom, you respond here, claiming to be just a little bit insulted, and blaming the article and its format instead of your own lack of understanding of American politics, and what a Conservative here stands for, which is quite different than in the U.K. Taken together, your actions continue to have all the hallmarks of a troll, so please forgive me if our common language has once again been an impediment to understanding your motives. I asked you very politely to study up on American conservatism and I once again ask that you do. --ṬK/Admin/Talk 13:36, 23 February 2010 (EST)

Broken Redirects

Sorry to bother you. I was browsing through the special pages and noticed two broken redirects. They are probably taking up space so could be deleted. Seeing as you have the power to do this, I thought I'd tell you :). Klinefelter syndrome and Klinefelter's sydrome are the guilty articles. Thank you and God bless. Myrobi 08:10, 2 March 2010 (EST)

e/c at your recent talk page deletion

e/c at the talk page you recently delete: Snopes has an entry about this saying that it is false, although they seem to be a bunch of liberals; whenever something involves Obama, it is always "false" accoring to Snopes. Take it or leave it.
I don't support the liberal whiners by any means, but I thought you might like to see this. Like I said above, take it or leave it; you've probably researched this much more than I. DMorris 20:07, 17 March 2010 (EDT)

I was unaware, until your post, that Snopes had anything about the matter, and the post I removed openly, rather than over-sighting it, didn't refer to Snopes either. It just seemed to be the work of another silly troll, blathering on about something silly. --ṬK/Admin/Talk 20:19, 17 March 2010 (EDT)
That's correct. Not to mention the user that started that page has a block history, so we can probably assume that he's up to no good. What I'm saying is that I was going to slap that comment on that page, but it disappeared so I posted it here instead. DMorris 20:31, 17 March 2010 (EDT)

Edit on page "Ex-homosexuals"

Hiya, I noticed you reverted my recent edit to the page "Ex-homosexuals".

Spelling/grammatical errors in John McCain article

The John McCain article is protected, but could you either fix the errors or unprotect the page and I'll help with it? In the article, it says under the Russia section that During a primary debate he sad . I think this should be During a primary debate he said . DMorris pointed that out originally on the article's talk page; I'm just making a note of it on your page since you were the last admin to visit the page (so my apologies about seemingly randomly picking your talk page). Also, in the first section, it says was the Republican candidate for President in 2008, is a prominent maverick politician and Vietnam War hero, and he is the senior Senator of Arizona. The "he" in bold should be removed to preserve the parallel structure of the sentence. Thanks for the help! My talk page is open if any of this needs to be discussed. Thanks for the help!

UK?

I don't know where you got the impression that I am from England, though I am happy you at least admit I may not be out to simply assault the conservatives of this wiki. I am a bit concerned, though, at the intentions you claim I revealed. I thought I revealed that the insertion of the middle name seemed to be the sort of action that leads undecided viewers of your page to want to lump you in with some of the more vicious elements of the internet. My primary question is: Is patting yourself and people who agree with you on the back more important than actually furthering Conservative ideals? - Vidihawk 08:45, 6 April 2010 (EDT)

If you made your assertion without checking all of the Presidential articles, that would have been foolish. As I pointed out, your assertion is without validity, if only because our Reagan article uses his middle name as well, an did so years before anyone knew of Obama. My question to you, in return, is do you think there can be just one non-liberal encyclopedia project on the Internet, unmolested, uncontested, just allowed to exist without constant demands for justification? What we are doing here isn't only self-congratulation. We are building a source of information for an under-served, but very large segment of the U.S. population as well. If people see Obama's middle name and are so ignorant to assume what you have, without looking deeper, we can very happily do without their snipes and assumptions. And yes I was mistaken in thinking you were from the U.K. I am guilty of multi-tasking and forgetting you are in the Northwest. --ṬK/Admin/Talk 08:58, 6 April 2010 (EDT)

I have answered to your reply. Have a good day, Sporean 08:50, 8 April 2010 (EDT)

Storehouse of Knowledge

Sorry about the recreation, TK; I didn't realize it had been created before. Thanks for catching that! Tzoran Talk 19:54, 8 April 2010 (EDT)

Hey there!

Hi, I just joined after lurking for a while, and since you seem to be prominent around here I thought I'd say hello! MikeSorter 11:55, 11 April 2010 (EDT)

Nice of you to say hello, Mike! Now I can say goodbye to you. --ṬK/Admin/Talk 15:31, 11 April 2010 (EDT)

A gentleman's gentleman

TK, I'm just glad you're here! You've helped keep this project alive for what? 2, 3 years now, and for that I'm profoundly grateful. --Ed Poor Talk 18:25, 12 April 2010 (EDT)

Coming from "Mr. Wiki" that is high praise indeed! I would thank you via phone if you answered it, or charged it! :P --ṬK/Admin/Talk 20:04, 12 April 2010 (EDT)

Follow-Up

So yes, anyway, what I had meant to say was that it could be helpful to give every page on a Biblical book a standardized title to the effect of Genesis (Biblical book), Exodus (Biblical book), etc. Not the most necessary change in the world, but it's nice to have things organized, right? Of course, the whole matter is entirely at your discretion.

On somewhat of a tangent, I've noticed you've been culling a number of unencyclopedic and inappropriate pages off the wiki. Do you think that adding {{sppedy}} would be the best way to speed up this process, or should I just leave it to you?--EdmundBurkeFan 23:39, 13 April 2010 (EDT)

Yes, forgive me for not noticing your post! That is helpful, and I agree with the naming convention. Best to check with one of the guys on the CPBP, DouglasA or Andy himself. --ṬK/Admin/Talk 20:42, 16 April 2010 (EDT)

Pages that are needed

Hi there. Is there a list of pages or articles that are needed by the site? I would like to write something but am at a loss for what to do. Additionally, thank you for your kind welcome and helpful reply to my talk page post pertaining to the Main Street One blog! RichardKerry 18:17, 16 April 2010 (EDT)

Check out: Special:WantedPages, Richard. You can see after the name that is needed the number of links that are on other pages, referencing that needed entry. If you need help, feel free to ask. --ṬK/Admin/Talk 20:40, 16 April 2010 (EDT)
Thank you, I'll get started! RichardKerry 12:35, 17 April 2010 (EDT)

Weird references on the Atheism and Evolution pages

Hi, TK--I noticed you reverted the notice I left on those talk pages. There's some weird text in the reference sections on the relevant articles. The articles are locked, otherwise I'd fix it myself. JClarke 22:38, 19 April 2010 (EDT)

Ashoka article

Could you please check out the edit history of Ashoka and apply appropriate oversight? DanielPulido 04:12, 22 April 2010 (EDT)

All better now. Thanks! --ṬK/Admin/Talk 05:26, 22 April 2010 (EDT)

Hello

Just saying hello. I will keep out of your hair and not cause trouble. JonG 17:52, 23 April 2010 (EDT)

Well hello back to you. I must say you have made a provocative post, Jon. Why did you find it necessary to assure me? --ṬK/Admin/Talk 18:33, 23 April 2010 (EDT)
To make sure you didn't autoblock me based on the IP address. JonG 19:15, 23 April 2010 (EDT)
Do you have some reason to believe we block people from using Verizon Internet Services? I never knew that until you posted! Perhaps you are getting your information from non-notable sources or vandal sites? --ṬK/Admin/Talk 20:22, 23 April 2010 (EDT)
No, not from other sites. Just from my own fiddlings -- did you receive my offline message? JonG 19:54, 24 April 2010 (EDT)
Nope. Use the send email function here. I think I finally figured out what this is all about, though. --ṬK/Admin/Talk 20:10, 24 April 2010 (EDT)

Response

Thanks for your advice on how I can improve image uploading, I'm a little new to this. Also if you want to know which images to lock the images in the Canadian Political People category are the first ones I have upload. QK 5:58, 24 April 2010 (EDT)

Thanks. --ṬK/Admin/Talk 17:39, 24 April 2010 (EDT)
Also I will include a list of photos uploaded past those ones stated above on my User page for your convience. QK 6:38, 24 April 2010 (EDT)

Locking US Vice President Template

I had let you in Ed Poor's talk page that I had finished adding Biden to the Vice President template and that it could be relocked, but I just realized you might not have seen my message there, so I'm letting you know here that I've finished adding him and that the template can be relocked.--Whizkid 12:07, 25 April 2010 (EDT)

No, I did not, and thanks for letting me know here! --ṬK/Admin/Talk 12:13, 25 April 2010 (EDT)

Revert

Why did you revert my edit? It seemed reasonable enough. AlanEdward 18:27, 25 April 2010 (EDT)

Answer: "To argue with a person who has renounced the use of reason is like administering medicine to the dead." Since you have none, there is no point in you using the Internet. Godspeed. --ṬK/Admin/Talk 18:32, 25 April 2010 (EDT)

Income redistribution

I made a few changes to the income redistribution article, so my article on wealth redistribution can most likely be deleted. Sorry again about the recreation; the term income redistribution skipped my mind temporarily! In Christ, Tzoran Talk 19:16, 27 April 2010 (EDT)

Not a problem at all, Tzoran! In fact I will use a redirect to the Income redistribution article. --ṬK/Admin/Talk 19:41, 27 April 2010 (EDT)

Updates

Hi, I was wondering if you could unlock the article about John McCain and add this more recent Senate photo File:John McCain official portrait 2009.jpg. Also I was wondering if you could add Cynthia McKinney to the template of 2008 presidential candidates, she ran with the Greens - QK 6:00, 28 April 2010 (EDT)

I have unlocked the article for you, QK. Will add the nut-job McKinney to the template. Thanks. --ṬK/Admin/Talk 14:36, 28 April 2010 (EDT)
I have added the new photo you many re-lock it now. Thanks QK 6:10, 28 April 2010 (EDT)
Much better picture! I wonder how they took one of him like that....usually he looks wooden. I will leave it open, perhaps as a honey pot for the vandal site members..... --ṬK/Admin/Talk 15:40, 28 April 2010 (EDT)

Fiorina Photo

Hi, I was wondering if you could help. I noticed your a Wikipedia User and I want to upload this; File:Carly Fiorina 1.jpg - photo of Carly Fiorina there but I have no experience using Wikipedia to upload photos. I was wondering if you could be of assistance? - QK 8:00, 28 April 2010 (EDT)

You want to upload the same photo we have to Wikipedia? I believe it came, originally from Wikipedia, or the Fiorina camapign website, the press section. --ṬK/Admin/Talk 18:52, 28 April 2010 (EDT)
Sorry if I was not cleary when explaining, the photo is from Fiorina's campaign website and was uploaded here. Wikipedia's most recent picture of her is in 2004 before her cancer battle and Wikipedia's Uploading process and Copyright section greatly differs from that of Conservapedia. So I was wondering if you had enough knowledge with Wikipedia Copyright policy to upload the photo. - QK 9:00, 28 April 2010 (EDT)
Nope, sorry, I have next to no knowledge as to how that place works. I do know that no matter what you do on Wikipedia there will be someone telling you its against their rules, and someone else, instantaneously saying its okay. I recommend you ask either user Papa November or Slim Virgin there. They are fair-minded and helpful Admins. --ṬK/Admin/Talk 19:11, 28 April 2010 (EDT)
I do believe User:Ed Poor has been a Wikipedia Admin for years I think I will ask him. QK 9:10, 28 April 2010 (EDT)

Suit yourself, but Ed is no longer an Admin at Wikipedia, which is why I suggested who I did. --ṬK/Admin/Talk 19:32, 28 April 2010 (EDT)

Locking photos/Photo update

Hi, I was wondering if you edit this Template:User McCain and add the newly upload photo of him. Also I was wondering if you could lock these photos;

  • File:Al Gore VP portrait 1994.jpg
  • File:Elizabeth Dole.jpg
  • File:Ted Stevens.jpg

and this anti-Obama template (Template:User Obama acronym)

Thanks hope it's not too much, QK 4:00, 2 May 2010 (EDT)

The user boxes go here: Conservapedia:Userboxes, and that section isn't locked, I don't think. Thanks for letting me know about the images, I will lock them. --ṬK/Admin/Talk 15:58, 2 May 2010 (EDT)
I was trying to say that the anti-Obama template was never locked I was wondering if you could lock it to prevent vandalism by liberals supporting Obama. Also I wanted to update the photo of McCain in his template but I would need it unprotected to do so. QK 5:30, 2 May 2010 (EDT)

Locking photos notice again

Also I have noticed that all the photos in the Category:Canadian Political People need to be locked also. QK 3 May 2010 (EDT)

Removed question

Was my question asked on the inappropriate page? If so, where or to whom should I direct my question to? --Hopefiend 18:46, 3 May 2010 (EDT)

Disregard the above post. I just now saw that you reverted it. My mistake for jumping the gun. --Hopefiend 18:48, 3 May 2010 (EDT)

Let me know if you get my email

If yours isn't getting through to me, mine might not be getting to you, though I've never had that happen before. DouglasA 01:14, 7 May 2010 (EDT)

Got it, responded, do the same via email too, okay? --ṬK/Admin/Talk 02:39, 7 May 2010 (EDT)
Done. DouglasA 02:45, 7 May 2010 (EDT)
