Happy editing, Isomorphic 22:21, 22 Feb 2004 (UTC)


Hello and welcome. You can sign your name with ~~~~. IMO, "Zhou Enlai" sounds closer to the acutal pronounciation than "Joe Un-lai". The Zh sound is not pronouced like J. Unless we use complex notation (such as those used in dictionaries), the name will still be mispronouced. Let's discuss this at Wikipedia talk:Manual of Style for China-related articles so others can participate.--Jiang 01:03, 23 Feb 2004 (UTC)

If it's not paraphrased enough, then please do fix it. Cheers, Jiang 08:19, 24 Feb 2004 (UTC)


Mr. Spencer195, you were obviously not at all informed on the entire "Little Black Sambo" issue you wrote for Ethnic issues in Japan. If you had read the book you mentioned as a source, please show where such completely false and misreading associations were made.

Chinese family names

Great links to wiki dictionary. Thanks! I didn't know there are dictionary entries for those characters. Are those entried imported from some public domain database? Kowloonese 22:34, 27 May 2004 (UTC)

Nanshu filled in the data with a bot, getting the information from the Unihan database (which in turn got their information from CEDICT (http://www.mandarintools.com/cedict.html), which is open-source). ☞spencer195 22:52, 27 May 2004 (UTC)
Actually, I think the only problem with linking the characters like this is that the underlining can be kind of distracting and the page can get a little harder to edit. I wonder if there is some way to modify the Wikipedia software so that Chinese characters would automatically link to their corresponding Wiktionary page? ☞spencer195 22:55, 27 May 2004 (UTC)

Ethnicity infobox

I actually think your recent change of colors for the ethnicity infobox in the article Jew is probably an improvement, but it really should be taken up at Wikipedia:WikiProject Ethnic Groups Template and Wikipedia:Infobox rather than changed in one place on an ad hoc basis. -- Jmabel 05:37, Jun 10, 2004 (UTC)

Full Nice Handbag Co

I counted roughly 2:1 for deletion, which is in the realm of judgement calls. Given that that the responses from people in Hong Kong were of the "I've never heard of it" variety, I went for deletion. -- Cyrius| 01:12, 12 Jun 2004 (UTC)

Taipei

Nice work on all the Taiwanese county info boxes. If you get a chance, the table at Taipei needs some reformatting too. (I don't know how to do it myself.) Cheers, Jiang 04:33, 13 Jun 2004 (UTC)

about Taiwan counties & cities

Thanks for creating and fixing the tables. I hope you can use your map to change my old map. If you can, I'll thank for your work. In addition, the maps can add blue color for ocean or sea.(like New York Map) Thank you very much! (Sichinaren 07:06, 14 Jun 2004 (UTC))

I was the one who came up with the shorthand for the "WP:SC" for shortcuts, and have been away for a while - apparently the standard for the new tags is lowercase, which is fine - I just didnt know. thanks. BTW, it looks like redirects work fine - so Moving the VFD template to vfd allows both to work. That should be fine. -Stevertigo 19:52, 11 Jul 2004 (UTC)

Favor

Please look at this and see if the tags that I added are valid. If the case doesnt matter, (due the redirects magically working) then caps can still be used for visibility, eh? I have to run, so if you can follow up, TBG! Thanks. -Stevertigo

Barnstar (DF08)

Dear Spencer195,

It was an extremely pleasant surprise for me to see that I have received the barnstar. I want to thank you for your support, and I am sure that I'll keep on contributing more and more towards Wikipedia.

Once again, thank you very much. :-) --DF08 22:31, Aug 21, 2004 (UTC)

Hu Jintao Portrait

Hi Spencer,

I got the Hu Jintao portrait from the website of the CCP-owned newspaper China Daily. I have searched this website and other websites high and low to see if I could find any other good portraits of Jiang Zemin or Deng Xiaoping in the traditional uniform of the Central Military Commission (the green suit), but I can't still find a hi-res portrait of either. It would be great if you could try and search the rest of the site for these types of pictures. Thanks! --Valentino 04:31, Sep 21, 2004 (UTC)

Thanks for the info. I've found some decent headshots of Jiang Zemin in a business suit (See [1]), but no larger versions or headshots of him in a Mao suit. I'll keep searching. -spencer195 05:05, 21 Sep 2004 (UTC)
Actually, Jiang's Wikipedia entry has a picture of him in the Mao suit, but a face portrait of the same would be better for the entry. I did find a picture of Jiang in a traditional Chinese suit along with George W. Bush, but I don't think it's close enough. I hope you find it; I'll keep looking also. --Valentino 06:47, Sep 21, 2004 (UTC)

zh-cn, zh-tw -> zh

if didn't change this, crosslink robot doesn't work.

for example, zh:A page has a link to en:A, en:A has many links and zh-cn:A, then the robot can't automatic add the many links to zh:A, I fint this, so I do this change.

And, anyhow I will pause to make this change.--LiDaobing 17:25, 4 Oct 2004 (UTC)

Jump in

Spencer195, absolutely be involved with editing/contributing to the articles. Part of the experience for the students is to in fact interact with Wikipedians. Treat them as any other newbies (er, that is, well behaving newbies) and hopefully you both will benefit from it. Thanks for asking. Fuzheado | Talk 03:18, 7 Oct 2004 (UTC)

Category:Chinese dissidents

Hi. Just wondering why you created this category? It duplicates the contents of List of Chinese dissidents, which contains a bunch of additional information. I think the general practice is to have one or the other, but not both. [[User:Noisy|Noisy | Talk]] 18:17, 7 Oct 2004 (UTC)

Re: Expressway maps

Hi Spencer195,

These maps will be coming soon! I've already done one or two for a few expressways (e.g. Jingzhang), these will get them first. Maps take quite some time, but the moment a map for an expwy is done, I'll add it to the article. Thanks again for the encouragement!

Best, --DF08 19:06, Oct 9, 2004 (UTC)

PS: Check out the 5th Ring Road article in Chinese -- it's got a map (scroll down), that's a prototype of an earlier map I made. (I wasn't born an artist, so improvements to come...) The new ones will be unified in size (300x300, as the pictures) and be a bit more informative.

Hi again,
Check out Jingcheng Expressway -- how do you like the map? I used OmniGraffle on Mac OS X 10.3 to do it... wasn't all too difficult. --DF08 (English) 15:13, 11 Oct 2004 (UTC)

New Youth

The redirect did not have a page history so deleting was not required for moving. I've nominated you for adminship. --Jiang 04:47, 21 Oct 2004 (UTC)

David Latapie

Hello Spencer,

Thank you for your welcoming message,this is much appreciated. Howerver, I'm an old wikipedist (I favour this term over wikipedian), since I first contributed in june 2003. It just happens that I usually edit the French Wikipedia. That is why my English page is not that organised.

I saw you signed a petition for the return of the Old Wikipedia. Do you know if there is any petition or lobbying or whatever to change the rules for hyperlinking? I find it annoying to have a double bracket+pipe rule for internal links and a single bracket+space rule for external links…
David Latapie ( | @) — www 12:49, 23 Oct 2004 (UTC)

You're an admin!

Congratulations! It's my pleasure to let you know that, consensus being reached, you are now an administrator. You should read the relevant policies and other pages linked to from the administrators' reading list before carrying out tasks like deletion, protection, banning users, and editing protected pages such as the Main Page. Most of what you do is easily reversible by other sysops, apart from page history merges and image deletion, so please be especially careful with those. You might find the new administrators' how-to guide helpful. Cheers! -- Cecropia | explains it all ® 05:06, 28 Oct 2004 (UTC)

Congratulations! Enjoy your new powers. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask me. --Slowking Man 09:49, Oct 29, 2004 (UTC)

Hello Spencer! I want to congratulate you on being an administrator. I am sure you will find the new job enjoyable, and I'm confident we as a whole (with other Wikipedians) can work together to make Wikipedia better. --DF08 (English) 13:45, 29 Oct 2004 (UTC)

Congrat on your adminship. Since voting, I've been looking over your work, and I'm glad we could recognize your accomplishments. -- user:zanimum

Congratulations! Fire Star 18:29, 29 Oct 2004 (UTC)

Thank you

That was speedier than I ever thought possible, and, to be honest, I wasn't around in the area where it was happening, but you speedily edited one of the articles I started (I think it was on Chen Haijan). Great work. Bobo192 19:14, 28 Oct 2004 (UTC)

recent deletions

I know you're new at this, but some of your recent deletions are a problem. First off, just because the uploader or author requested something be deleted, it is still not within policy to honor that request. The one exception is deletion of User: subpages, because everything becomes "owned" by the entire project, not just the originator. The second thing is that when you delete something, you should leave in a summary of the text, as in "Content was: Foo". -- Netoholic @ 06:34, 2004 Oct 31 (UTC)

"Uploader requested" deletions

I noticed in the deletion log that you have deleted a number of images while leaving the edit summary "Uploader requested deletion" or something similiar. I wanted to clarify to you that just because an uploader requests one of their images be deleted (unless it is a personal image, like a photograph for Wikipedia:Facebook) does not mean that it can be automatically deleted. Unless it meets one of the criteria for images at Wikipedia:Candidates for speedy deletion, then it must go through the full one-week process at Wikipedia:Images for deletion. BLANKFAZE | (что??) 18:36, 31 Oct 2004 (UTC)

Regional notice boards

I notice you left a message on the Category discussion page on moving the notice boards from "X Wikipedians' notice board" to "X-related topics notice board". I think this is important - the current convention discourages the contribution of those who are interested in a particular country/culture but are not residents. Did you have any success/opposition? --[[User:OldakQuill|Oldak Quill]] 19:38, 3 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Small cap for surname

I have noticed that you recently made Zhang Ziyi's surname ALL CAPITAL. That was what I proposed two to three years ago. Back then, there were objections because it did not follow some wikipedia naming conventions. My user page talked about that too. I was wondering if your recent action will be shot down by the same group of people who want to stick to an arbituary choice that fails in international usage. I just hope those who objected three years ago are no longer here, then we can do it right. Perhaps your new standard should be updated in the Wikipedia naming convention. Kudos for the starting a revolution. You have my support.  :-) Kowloonese 00:47, 6 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Re: admin

Hi Spencer,

I accept the nomination with pleasure. I'm here for Wikipedia -- be that contributing articles, writing up about the Beijing expressways, or helping out in general. I'm ready for the challenge.

I'm also rather sorry I failed to vote for you when you were about to become an admin yourself. I was always in favour of you being an admin, you can count this as my (rather delayed) vote -- of confidence -- a yes vote.

A personal thank you -- to you -- for your confidence, in me, in my contributions. I now face the consensus on the vote page with pleasure. :-)

All the best, --DF08 04:42, 8 Nov 2004 (UTC)

The Humungous Image Tagging Project

Hi. You've helped with the Wikipedia:WikiProject Wiki Syntax, so I thought it worth alerting you to the latest and greatest of Wikipedia fixing project, User:Yann/Untagged Images, which is seeking to put copyright tags on all of the untagged images. There are probably, oh, thirty thousand or so to do (he said, reaching into the air for a large figure). But hey: they're images ... you'll get to see lots of random pretty pictures. That must be better than looking for at at and the the, non? You know you'll love it. best wishes --Tagishsimon (talk)

Article Licensing

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)[[]] 14:12, Dec 9, 2004 (UTC)

Template:Move to Wikitravel

What are your thoughts/reasons for creating this? Wikitravel is not a Wikimedia sister project, and as such, shouldn't be treated like Template:Move to Wiktionary. We have no instructions for just how to move that information, especially because Wikitravel uses a completely different license. -- Netoholic @ 19:46, 2004 Dec 21 (UTC)

Stalinism Article

Image Tagging Image:Panda.png

Thanks for uploading Image:Panda.png. I notice it currently doesn't have an image copyright tag, so its copyright status is therefore unclear. Could you add a tag to let us know its copyright status? (If you created/took the picture then you can use {{gfdl}} to release it under the GFDL. If you can claim fair use use {{fairuse}}.) If you don't know what any of this means, just let me know on the image description page where you got the images and I'll tag them for you. Otherwise, see Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use. Thanks so much. --michael180 16:05, August 5, 2005 (UTC)

Lists of Taiwanese counties

Hi. I recently came across List of Taiwanese counties by population, List of Taiwanese counties by area and List of Taiwanese counties by population density, which were created by you. Is it necessary in this case to have three different articles, or could we perhaps merge them all into a new article called, say, List of Taiwanese counties? Punkmorten 15:51, 13 October 2005 (UTC)

Peer review/Yuan (surname)

If you have a minute, could you take a look at the article Yuan (surname) - I've put it up for peer review (see Wikipedia:Peer review/Yuan (surname)/archive1).

Thanks for uploading Image:Taipei City seal.png. I notice the 'image' page currently specifies that the image is unlicensed for use on Wikipedia and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image 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.

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 any fair use images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. --Durin 19:19, 20 October 2006 (UTC)

Image:Wuyi.jpg

Thanks for uploading Image:Wuyi.jpg. I notice the 'image' page specifies that the image is being used under fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first fair use criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed image could reasonably be found or created. If you believe this image is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the image description page and edit it to add {{Replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original Replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace the fair use image by finding a freely licensed image of its subject or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our fair use criteria. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that any fair use images which are replaceable by free-licensed alternatives 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. --Chowbok 02:12, 23 November 2006 (UTC)

If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL.

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.

Disputed fair use rationale for Image:Pingtung County emblem.png

Thank you for uploading Image:Pingtung County emblem.png. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this image under "fair use" may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content. This can be corrected by going to the image description page and add or clarify the reason why the image qualifies for fair use. Adding and completing one of the templates available from Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy. Please be aware that a fair use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for images used under the fair use policy require both a copyright tag and a fair use rationale.

If it is determined that the image does not qualify under fair use, it might be deleted by adminstrator within a few days in accordance with our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions, please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot (talk) 16:26, 8 March 2008 (UTC)

As well as adding the source, please add a proper copyright licensing tag if the file doesn't have one already. 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:Non-free content, 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 tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.

Notification: changes to "Mark my edits as minor by default" preference

Hello there. This is an automated message to tell you about the gradual phasing out of the preference entitled "Mark all edits minor by default", which you currently have (or very recently had) enabled.

On 13 March 2011, this preference was hidden from the user preferences screen as part of efforts to prevent its accidental misuse (consensus discussion). This had the effect of locking users in to their existing preference, which, in your case, was true. To complete the process, your preference will automatically be changed to false in the next few days. This does not require any intervention on your part and you will still be able to manually mark your edits as being minor in the usual way.

For established users such as yourself there is a workaround available involving custom JavaScript. With the script in place, you can continue with this functionality indefinitely (its use is governed by WP:MINOR). If you have any problems, feel free to drop me a note.

Thank you for your understanding and happy editing :) Editing on behalf of User:Jarry1250, LivingBot (talk) 18:14, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

I'll make an unofficial suggestion to you: given that you have spent quite a number of years away from Wikipedia I think it's fair to say that you are no longer as familiar with the community norms and expectations around the admin bit. The Committee only removed those permissions preemptively, and we're still examining the matter and its context, but perhaps the best solution would be to relinquish the bit voluntarily, reacquaint yourself with how things have changed, and request the bit back in a couple of months? (Either to the Committee or directly to the community as you prefer). — Coren (talk) 00:32, 1 June 2011 (UTC)

Indefinitely blocked

I have indefinitely blocked you from editing. The reason is given below.

  • Firstly, had I been the checkuser on the SPI case filed against you I almost certainly would have blocked you there and then. Administrators, irrespective of when they gained the admin rights or whatever the policies when they gained the rights, should know that doing things like [3] this on alternative accounts is unacceptable.
  • Secondly, you state that the policy on alternative accounts was different and asked what policy you violated. That is not an adequate defense. Policy is descriptive, not prescriptive; the fact that the policy has changed does not mean that community standards have. I was active around the time you left and I can assure you that this kind of behaviour was also unacceptable back then, regardless of what the policy stated.
  • Thirdly, you also stated that you don't see what you did wrong. This is the most disturbing thing, and one of the main reasons I have blocked you. If you cannot see why these edits were inappropriate, especially since they were on an alternative account, then there is risk of further behaviour like this if you remain unblocked. Additionally, I personally don't believe that you did now know it was inappropriate since you did it on an alternative account, however this does not factor into the blocking reason.
  • Fourthly and finally, the differences in your behaviour from when you stopped editing to when you started again support the hypothesis that your account is compromised.

All four of these reasons are insufficient evidence to block you but when you combine all four it becomes sufficient. I regret it has come to this but your inability to see what you did wrong and your seeming unwillingness to demonstrate that you won't do it again have lead to this block. --(ʞɿɐʇ) ɐuɐʞsǝp 14:51, 1 June 2011 (UTC)

As one of the checkusers on the case filed against you, I do support this block. There are too many odd things regarding this situation for me to believe for a moment that you are who you claim to be. The only reason I didn't block you at the time was because I figured the Arbitration Committee would handle that better. Hersfold (t/a/c) 15:37, 1 June 2011 (UTC)
As someone who also was active in the time period mentioned, I can add a second voice to deskana's point relating to that. This was not acceptable back then and this is not how this account used to behave. I believe a compromised account is highly likely. -- ۩ Mask 21:17, 2 June 2011 (UTC)
No, I'm not going to do it again, and no, this account is not compromised. How can I prove it has not been compromised? Isn't indefinitely blocking me a bit harsh of a punishment for a first-time offense, and given that this account has been around for years incident-free and with over 4000 edits? I would think that de-sysoping me would be enough. And what about the comment by A Quest For Knowledge [4] that blocks are supposed to be preventative rather than punitive? Of course I'm not going to do it again, now that I know what the consequences are. Spencer195 (talk) 07:10, 3 June 2011 (UTC)
The blok is quitel clearly preventive - you are saying that you don't even know what you did wrong - that means that your promise not to do it again is rather useless, you may do it again without even knowing it. The only way to prevent further disruption then is by block. Desysopping is not enough since your problems have not been with abuse of admin tools but with lack of commonsense.·ʍaunus·snunɐw· 13:06, 3 June 2011 (UTC)

Better source request for File:NK-pyongyang2.png

Thanks for your upload to Wikipedia:

You provided a source, but it is difficult for other users to examine the copyright status of the image because the source is incomplete. Please consider clarifying the exact source so that the copyright status may be checked more easily. It is best to specify the exact Web page where you found the image, rather than only giving the source domain or the URL of the image file itself. Please update the image description with a URL that will be more helpful to other users in determining the copyright status.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source in a complete manner. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page or me at my talk page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 19:25, 22 April 2013 (UTC)
