About forming new articles

Remember that new articles are to have a couple of good paragraphs, as well as a Related References and See Also sections. Follow any of my pages to get an idea if you like. --Tony Sommer 19:06, 14 January 2008 (EST)

Are you going to reply to my message? --Rucas 10:39, 15 January 2008 (EST)

Reply to what exactly? I dont see you having asked any questions.
Discussion regarding material on Kent Hovind's page should be placed on the discussion page for that article, so others can chime-in. Reading the talk page of other editors and responding is a violation CreationWiki discussion policy.

--Mr. Ashcraft - (talk) 12:04, 15 January 2008 (EST)


Before making any more edits to the CreationWiki - carefully read through our Policy. This request was stated above in your welcome on this talk page.

As I have already stated, Do not delete content.

When you are at odds with an issue, you are only permitted to discuss the need for deletion and provide justification using the discussion page. Removal of said content, if warranted will be decided and executed by the administration.

Furthermore, reversing an administrative action is considered vandalism. As a new user, I'm sure you did not know this, but careful observance of CreationWiki policy is required.

Kent Hovind

You should know that, since you recommended (or appeared to recommend) the Kent Hovind article for deletion, I looked over the talk page on Kent Hovind. Very interesting. You appear to have jumped right into a hot-and-heavy quarrel, in which I for one do not intend to mix. I'm going to defer to Mr. Ashcraft as to whether the discussion should even remain on the deletion recommendation page.

Please reply to me on my talk page for any further discussion of this issue.--TemlakosTalk 22:47, 15 January 2008 (EST)

Semantic annotation

Congratulations! You've discovered semantic annotation, and even how to create properties. I caught your addition to the Mass type. That was good thinking.--TemlakosTalk 07:15, 16 January 2008 (EST)

Chemical semantic templates

Excellent! But watch the Semantic Help pages closely. With the new release of Semantic MediaWiki came support for a new template parameter called {{#ask:, that allows great flexibility in producing consistent inline queries in a variety of articles--and also solves the interference with Cite.--TemlakosTalk 13:47, 16 January 2008 (EST)

Deleting content

CSE article? Why did you re-add the anti-creationist view of the CSE YouTube copyright dispute? The text I wrote to replace it has all the same information without the anti-creationist POV. --Rucas 14:02, 16 January 2008 (EST)

It has been made abundantly clear to you that deleting content was not permitted, and reversing admin actions was considered vandalism. Despite my directives, you have once again delete material that I restored two times before.
Do not edit, or engage in discussion regarding, the CSE or Kent Hovind pages again. And in the future, be sure to get approval before acting in a manner that could be interpreted as opposing an administrator.
