Hello there Bobdobbs1723, welcome to the 'pedia! I hope you like the place and decide to stay. If you need any questions answered about the project then check out Wikipedia:Help or add a question to the Village pump. BTW, nice I like your addition of an economics section to the Nazism article. Great work! Cheers! --maveric149

Welcome to the Wikipedia. I appreciate your honesty about your contentiousness, if not the contentiousness itself. :-) If you need help conforming your contributions to the neutral point of view, please ask for it. And don't be offended if "help" is given even when you don't ask! --Ed Poor

Hi and welcome! Helpful tip: three tildes in a row (~~~) will produce a user signature for you if you're signed on. Four produce your signature and the date. Enjoy! -- April 14:25 Sep 5, 2002 (PDT)

Can you explain specifically wrong with my changes? how would you EDIT the revision? Certainly we don't want to replace everywhere that it says anarchism with libertarian socialism...which is pretty much the way the old version reads-anarchism does not oppose all government-it supports self-government-the old version is WRONG

New revision! Read fast before the censors come back! Lir 22:03 Oct 2, 2002 (UTC)

I strongly object to people going through and deleting lots of stuff because they disagree with one sentence of the edited work. When someone edits something substantially-those who disagree should find a way to work their disagreement into the revised article-and thus submit a new article-that would be very nice-I have revised all of the anarchism document-it is not fundamentally different-but there are a lot of new things-some clarifications-and some re-wordings. Even someone objects with this they should not delete my revision. It is not garbage. Lir 22:37 Oct 2, 2002 (UTC)

Before I even touched the page it already had a large section devoted to anarchism vs. anarcho-capitalism. All I have done is mentioned it early on in the section so that people are aware of it. I have not stated that anarcho-capitalism is not anarchism. I have seen several pages here which go much further in identifying minority viewpoints-I have been to numerous anarchist conventions and at every single one they discuss how anarcho-capitalism is in violation of anarchism because anarchism is a communal and democratic philosophy. This was all discussed in the section before I edited it-I have left it there and simply organized things-I do not see why I have to take the heat for something which is hardly a lone or radical opinion regarding anarcho-capitalisms relation to anarchy.

If you feel anarcho-capitalism is anarchy-Explain! Bear in mind that the majority of anarchists want to live as a group of happy people who vote on stuff and try to share. Is anarcho-capitalism part of that philosophy? Lir 22:37 Oct 2, 2002 (UTC)

What has gone wrong with the page? It seems to have crashed. Lir 22:38 Oct 2, 2002 (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 2000 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:


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:

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)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

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 Francis Bellamy[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 Francis Bellamy requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page appears to be an unambiguous copyright infringement. This page appears to be a direct copy from For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images taken from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites or other printed material as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If the external website or image belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text or image — which means allowing other people to use it for any reason — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. The same holds if you are not the owner but have their permission. If you are not the owner and do not have permission, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission for how you may obtain it. You might want to look at Wikipedia's copyright policy for more details, or ask a question here.

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.
