Thanks for updating that! AdenJ 08:02, 23 May 2008 (EDT)
If you ever get a chance to visit my country you must see the Museum. I have been there many times and still have not seen it all. AdenJ 08:05, 23 May 2008 (EDT)
Hey. I saw the debate that had been posted about “Are Mormons Christians”. I think that that’s a good topic to discuss, but I also noticed that you blocked the last user who attempted to bring it up. I want to start the debate again, but I don’t want to get blocked. So, if it’s inappropriate, will you please explain why? JimmyP 22:56, 28 May 2008 (EDT)
Is it? I'm sorry, then, but I haven't seen it. Could you please just humor me? (And I'm not trying to be rude or anything. I'm honestly curious.) JimmyP 13:27, 29 May 2008 (EDT)
Are you going to ignore me? JimmyP 14:58, 29 May 2008 (EDT)
- I believe this is a too controversial issue. Andy also deleted it; you may ask him too. God bless you. --User:Joaquín Martínez, talk 15:39, 29 May 2008 (EDT)
Why does controversy mean that it can't be disscussed? Should we avoid things because they're controversial? And Andy blocked the first guy to put it up because he violated the 90/10 rule. JimmyP 15:42, 29 May 2008 (EDT)
- Andy deleted the old debate article too. May be you can choose another name, not offensive. --User:Joaquín Martínez, talk 15:46, 29 May 2008 (EDT)
He deleted it because the guy broke the 90/10 rule for too much talk. And what do you mean "choose anther name"? In fairness, anyone can be offended by anything. There will never be anything that everything is okay with. So just because someone doesn't like it, should we not talk about it? JimmyP 15:52, 29 May 2008 (EDT)
- I understand your point. In my opinion it is an offensive issue to doubt about the core faith of this religion. But I don't think my word is the last one. Please contact Andy. --User:Joaquín Martínez, talk 15:57, 29 May 2008 (EDT)
Fair enough. Thank you for your time. JimmyP 15:59, 29 May 2008 (EDT)
Hi - thank you for the invitation, I'll definitely have a look and see how I can help, although I haven't lived there for a few years, so I might be a bit behind on some things :) Arigatou! --JessicaTOhayo gozaimasu! 12:03, 30 May 2008 (EDT)
Can you elaborate on why Tom Moore was blocked? A month is a long time to cut off a productive, thoughtful contributor like him over a difference of opinion on editing. He represents a different point of view, but when someone does research and puts in encyclopedic content with valid references, then he deserves an academic-level response, not the sledgehammer of a block. I'll probably get blocked myself for saying this (I just came off of a 1-week block for "supporting a troublemaker" over a math issue), but it's becoming apparent that while we mere editors have to argue points on merit, some of the people with block privileges are using it to end arguments and smack down people whose views annoy them, instead of reserving it for vandals and the like. --DinsdaleP 22:12, 5 June 2008 (EDT)
- Dear Dinsdale. I am sure that Conservapedia needs a lot of work to reach its goals. Some of us work hard to get that dream. I personally don't have time to loose. Soon I will start a new novel. But I will give some minutes.
He has been warned 2 times not to delete valuable materials. Sometimes I spend hours searching for them. It is not fair to loose this work just because some one does not care. He also has a nice history of blocks of short time. The only way that I see to stop him is with this kind of blocking.
- After stating what he wanted to change in the article, he was asked to "improve the article" by another sysop (HenryS), which could be interpreted as permission to do so. I would recommend removing the block because it does appear he was given permission. DanH 22:44, 5 June 2008 (EDT)
Still, he was told to "improve the article", which means we need to assume good faith here. DanH 22:54, 5 June 2008 (EDT)
- Before he first edited the article, it was in bad shape. With nasty vandalism and all. HenryS 22:55, 5 June 2008 (EDT)
Thanks for clarifying. I still maintain he should not have been blocked for a month, as he was trying to make good faith edits to improve the article and was not trying to push a POV or anything. I also maintain that his block history should not be considered, as most of his blocks have been considered unjust and overturned. DanH 22:57, 5 June 2008 (EDT)
- Agreed. I have not looked at his block log, but after looking at the edits in question I did not see any POV either. Rather than a block he should be encouraged to use talk. I hope Joaquin agrees. HenryS 23:02, 5 June 2008 (EDT)
He has tried using talk on some of these articles before but simply been told "no, it should stay as it is" without being given a good reason, so I don't quite blame him. But I agree with your suggestion totally, and will try to keep a closer eye on these talk pages. DanH 23:04, 5 June 2008 (EDT)
- Thanks, guys.
- Joaquin, I am curious as to why you think the Pericles image (the only thing I removed) should be on that page, since he isn't mentioned at all except for a link to his page (where the image would belong). I didn't think it should be there, so I removed it and suggested a change you could make if you wanted to re-add it: namely, talking about Pericles somehow on the page. If you think Pericles is important to greek influence on western culture, it would seem reasonable to say why, instead of insisting on just including his image, regardless of how important you personally might think it is. If you spent a long time looking for it, I'm sorry, but that's not really grounds for including it on a page to which it has no relation at the current time. Thank you and I hope you understand my position.--Tom Moorefiat justitia ruat coelum 23:07, 5 June 2008 (EDT)
- Please respond, Joaquin, so we can resolve this.--Tom Moorefiat justitia ruat coelum 15:15, 6 June 2008 (EDT)
- Well, I know you've read this by now, Joaquin, since a little message appears at the top reminding you that you have new messages, and you have been on and editing over the past days this has been up here. So presumably you are just ignoring it. That's not very reasonable when I am trying to resolve the issue with this page, so I think if you are on again and editing without responding, it is reasonable for me to re-make my changes. It's not fair you just refuse to discuss it--Tom Moorefiat justitia ruat coelum 13:55, 7 June 2008 (EDT)
- I am reverting back to my last good version, Joaquin. I still encourage you to discuss it, if you are still interested.--Tom Moorefiat justitia ruat coelum 12:46, 9 June 2008 (EDT)
- Hey Joaquin, I noticed that despite my many messages here asking for explanation, you have reverted my edit today some days after I made it, without explanation here or on my talk page or on the article's talk page. I would refer you to Conservapedia's Guidelines, which suggest, "Let others know what you are doing, and respond quickly to queries."
- Please do me the courtesy of replying, not just reverting without explanation.--Tom Moorefiat justitia ruat coelum 23:00, 15 June 2008 (EDT)
- I see you have reverted again. You know a little box pops up when you have a new message, so Im pretty confident you have seen this by now, especially since you have replied to other people here. This is incredibly rude.--Tom Moorefiat justitia ruat coelum 11:52, 16 June 2008 (EDT)
- I'm not sure what I have to do to get you to give me some basic respect as an editor. You won't discuss your edit, you just keep reverting. You just did it again. Why are you so insistent on putting paragraphs in blockquotes when it is needless, rewriting the page to poorer English, and inserting a picture of an Athenian general who is not mentioned in the article?--Tom Moorefiat justitia ruat coelum 14:01, 16 June 2008 (EDT)
- I see you have reverted again. You know a little box pops up when you have a new message, so Im pretty confident you have seen this by now, especially since you have replied to other people here. This is incredibly rude.--Tom Moorefiat justitia ruat coelum 11:52, 16 June 2008 (EDT)
- I have nothing else to say. Read carefully my explanation. Amen. --User:Joaquín Martínez, talk 16:12, 17 June 2008 (EDT)
- You didn't say anything to help resolve the conflict. Do you object to my edits still? If so, you need to go back to that page and say why. You don't get to just ignore the discussion. Your power doesn't make you correct; might doesn't make right.--Tom Moorefiat justitia ruat coelum 20:47, 17 June 2008 (EDT)
- Tom, it is time to back down from this issue. Joaquin has been a very prolific contributor to Conservapedia who has gone out of his way to avoid the controversial areas that others flock to, including you. Indeed, we owe almost our entire section of artists and artworks to Joaquin. As a man of the arts, his perspectives are different than your practical methodologies. So Pericles, as a symbol of Greece, has the right fit for a picture in the article. Who is to say that is wrong? He doesn't get tied down in the type of incessant debating that you enjoy, and would prefer to simply create. He has incorporated many of the changes that you made, and that is a form of honor to your suggestions. Beyond that, you've drilled this topic as far as you can. Be pleased with the presentations that you've made and that you have been able to express yourself, and be pleased with the information that you have provided that was incorporated into the article, and now move on to other areas where your own skills and knowledge could continue to be beneficial. Learn together 03:03, 18 June 2008 (EDT)
- No. I am not going to do that. I am sorry, LT, but that is wholly unacceptable to me. You would like me to cater to him after the way I have been treated in this matter? Joaquin had blocked me, ignored me, and insulted me. There has not been even the hint of an apology. And now he will be rewarded?
- What if I were to go to the absurd author page and rewrite that, and he decided he wanted to put in a picture of Shel Silverstein - even though Shel wasn't in the article? And of course he'd have to put a variety of paragraphs he found elsewhere on the page, in italics and blockquotes. If I protest, he can lock it and just completely ignore me again.He can't abuse me and ignore me and then get entirely his way, just because he is a sysop. That's not right. And if I give an inch, next he'll take a mile.
- He accused me of removing important information, and I proceeded to show very clearly that I did not. He accused me of removing images, and I showed very clearly that they are not relevant. And you think it is appropriate for me to just give him his way, ignoring my own thoughts on the matter - why, because he has a background in the arts? I have a master's in English Literature! Compare the two versions of the article!
- No, he doesn't get to be right, just because he has power. Not while I am around - although many a sysop would be happy to be rid of me because of my beliefs and forthrightness. But a sysop is just another editor to me. And Joaquin is just another editor.
- So I want an apology, and I want him to unlock the article so I can undo his changes. I'm not going to be disruptive, don't worry. I won't spam anything, I won't put anything on the main page, etc. But I am going to request from him every day I am on CP that he do these two things. If he is willing to just ignore people rather than work with them, he can ignore me every day.--Tom Moorefiat justitia ruat coelum 12:28, 18 June 2008 (EDT)
- Tom you are taking this way too personally and you are making a minor editing difference a major focus. You have to let things go. You've made good edits; that should be your reward. The obsessiveness of this ongoing response far exceeds the importance of the difference. You are being highly disruptive, and that is not something that we can tolerate on this site. At least respect that Joaquin predates you by over a year, and has gone to great pains to avoid editing controversial subjects, and disdains exactly the type of thing that you are trying to force him into. You have now complained on four different talk pages. Your continued efforts to turn up the heat must cease or I will be forced to block you to give you a chance to cool down, not because of your beliefs or forerightness, but because of your "Hillary Clintonish" way of needing to win at all costs. Please consider this carefully. Learn together 20:23, 18 June 2008 (EDT)
- He wasn't focused on the minor difference, he was focused on the rightfully major issue that JM rode rough-shod over the entire process. It was only a big deal because a)JM wouldn't see reason and b)sysops like yourself didn't expend 1/10th the energy posting to JM about how he was mistaken that was spent posting to TM about how he was being too sensitive.
- You do understand that quality editors who can make substantive, thought-provoking contributions are likely to be thoughtful, inteligent people in general, right? If you only want grade-school contributions then, by all means, treat your editors like grade-schoolers. If you want mature thinking, likewise. Aziraphale 21:15, 18 June 2008 (EDT)
The edits I made didn't change the substance of the article. But the term "Democrat" when referring to the party, is considered a pejorative. It's "Democratic party" or "Democratic Senator", not "Democrat Party" and "Democrat Senator". Unless you have a specific reason for going back to the insulting term, I am going to change it back to the proper terms. Thanks! --Jareddr 08:57, 16 June 2008 (EDT)
- From CP's article on the Democratic Party, "Members and supporters of the Democratic Party are known as Democrats, and historically the party has sometimes been called the "Democrat Party," which the party considers a pejorative term." --Jareddr 09:05, 16 June 2008 (EDT)
Nudity in the muralism article
Since I respect your status here on Wikipedia as a conservative hispanic I would like you to look at and address my current concerns about nudity in your visual example on your article about muralism. See the talk page where I raise my concerns. I actually liked the previous non-controversial example of a mural you used following my initial concerns about bare breasts, but the recent version may have some problems. With all respect, muchas gracias mi amigo! --AdmiralNelson 19:42, 18 June 2008 (EDT)
Joaquin, I applaud your posting of the mural. I believe that Americans are far too sensitive about the human body- it is a sad example of such oversensitivity that non-pornographic images displaying the beauty of the human body have to be censored. I believe the mural is in good taste and CP would do well to include it. -- Aaronp
- I'm sorry, but this is CONSERVAPEDIA and not WIKIPEDIA. Please note that Conservapedia Commandment number 3 unambiguously states:
Edits/new pages must be family-friendly, clean, concise, and without gossip or foul language.
- It is a slippery slope. Once we allow blatantly nude pictures here, where do we stop? Andy espouses home schooling (which I've done with my son) and using Wikipedia I constantly and inadvertently run across inappropriate language and images. That's why I prefer Conservapedia which, ostensibly, pays attention to, and tries to suppress, inadvertent offensive language and images (please re-read Commandment 3 above). If you looked at the original image that I was complaining about it's pretty unambiguous that large and conspicuous breasts were the focus of that picture. Joaquin replaced it with a perfectly appropriate and non-offensive image which still demonstrated the technique of muralism. I'm mystified as to why he subsequently replaced that perfectly inoffensive image with the current one which is, once again, more problematic. Did you click on the links I posted above? Those are images that I retrieved with Google Safe Search set to ON and are totally inappropriate for young children and adolescents, and they are images of sections of the mural Joaquin is currently posting. Frankly, I'm mystified as to why this is an issue at all. Be conservative, be moral, be inoffensive. There are lots of other safe examples of mexican murals that don't cause this problem. Why choose this one? --AdmiralNelson 20:13, 18 June 2008 (EDT)
Very nice masterpiece this week! Inspirational indeed. Thank you!--Aschlafly 09:33, 7 August 2008 (EDT)

I have a question about the Famous American Artists/Musicians page. I'm wondering what to do about folks who are partly or more famous as part of a group instead of as an individual.

I noticed that you had edited the Falkland Islands article so that it stated that the islands are correctly known as the Malvinas. I do not believe that is correct so I reverted the edit to the previous version which had a sentence at the bottom of the paragraph which said that the Argentines referred to them as the Islas Malvinas, but Aschlafly reverted it back to your version and suggested I talk to you. So here I am. --TCochrane 18:26, 3 December 2008 (EST)
- If Joaquín isn't around, I feel certain he would tell you to include both names, as in Latin America they do refer to them as the Malvinas, but in the English-speaking world they are called the Falklands. Just note that part of that poor, wind-blown island's history of dispute includes its name. Residents there, being UK expatriates, call it the Falklands. --₮K/Talk 18:56, 3 December 2008 (EST)

I have just the place for your little tug, Joaquín. Please see Tugboat.
In Minoan Civilization there is a picture of coins that, if we can believe the description, is inappropriate in that the date of 500 B.C. is about 1000 years after the demise of the Minoans. Do you, in your magic box of pictures, have a replacement picture. Things to look for are "Minoan" "Ancient Crete" "Knossos", "Linear A" (I'll explain that if you want.) "Labrynth", "Bull Dancing" "Minotaur".
And while I have you.... Check out Category: Sailing ship types. (It's your fault...I went from "Tugboat" (smiles)) Do you have anything to suit. (But be careful. I know exactly what these ships are supposed to look like...if I could upload, and if I had the time to do it, I'd draw them.) (It is a pity that my email address refused to "register" when I joined last year, however there is an address on my userpage below my first waffle. Gotta go. About to be locked out.) AlanE 00:07, 14 December 2008 (EST)
The words after "check out was the category at the bottom of my edit . I don't know how to fix it.AlanE 00:11, 14 December 2008 (EST)
- Minoan coins; I tried to fix it, hope is OK now.
- For Category: Sailing ship types, please see: Current revision (08:54, 10 December 2008) by WesleyS.
- G'morning...I was in a hurry yesterday, and didn't make myself clear, I think. When I "saved" my comment the category: sailing ship types I wrote in the first line appeared at the bottom of your talkpage...that's what I couldn't fix.
Why I mentioned the category: I created that category and, except for clipper - which I will add to today - all the articles in it are mine, either new articles or worked out of stubs; and apart from caravelall since you got me onto a nautical bender with "Tugboat" about a week ago. I have almost done it now, I think...the only major sailing "ship" type left not included is yacht and that id not so much a type as a "usage". I have also tried to explain certain types of rigging and other features. The only way I they could be explained better would be with pictures. The problem is the pictures would have to be exactly fitting the ship type, rigging etc of the vessel described. Perhaps most of them should be left unillustrated. Cheers. I'll now look at the coins.AlanE 12:22, 14 December 2008 (EST)
- Back again. The problem, Joaquín, is that the Minoan civilization had no coins. Coins weren't "invented" until at least 800 years after the Minoan civilization fell. So the picture is inappropriate. It's like having an Aztec artifact illustrated in an article about the fall of the Teotihuican culture, or an Elizabethan coin in an article about Anglo-Saxon England. Same place, different culture. I know I'm a pain, but isn't here an available picture of the ruins at Knossos, or the wonderful throne room, or something? I was going to fix the article up a bit, and the picture is the main thing wrong. You know what I mean? 12:57, 14 December 2008 (EST)

Cleaning featured articles
I had a question about protocol for how to list featured article suggestions on the talk page. I think the committee's official votes should stay on the main page, while regular editors' comments and suggestions should be on the talk page. This keeps official separate from unofficial. If you agree, then I'll remove votes from non-committee members on the main page, and remove committee members' votes from the talk page. I've run this by TK and he agrees, but we wanted your input. -Foxtrot 20:13, 12 March 2009 (EDT)
- I agree, go ahead! --Joaquín Martínez 20:18, 12 March 2009 (EDT)
- the pages are now spic-and-span. -Foxtrot 20:33, 12 March 2009 (EDT)
Hola Joaquin. I see you're the main contributor to the Gallery of American Heroes. Would you mind if I reduced the size of John McCain's picture, so that he was the same size as the others? Thanks,--CPalmer 14:24, 13 March 2009 (EDT)
- You could try and see if there is any objection. --Joaquín Martínez 18:59, 13 March 2009 (EDT)
Joaquín, old mate!
G'morning Joaquín. I received a request on my user page from a new user (User talk: JDWpianist) for help with uploading pictures. Can you please help, if possible? Cheers. AlanE 15:35, 17 March 2009 (EDT)
Hi Joaquin! I've just made a new page on musical modes. There's already a stub called modal tonalities, a term I've never heard of, and which should probably be deleted altogether. Would you mind taking care of this?
By the way, I realized that the image request page wouldn't work for images of my own creation. If I sent you the files through e-mail, could you help me with this too? Yes, go ahead.
Tausende Dank! JDWpianist 18:16, 24 March 2009 (EDT)
- Bitte sehr. --Joaquín Martínez 18:34, 24 March 2009 (EDT)
Sorry to bother you again, but there's no way for me to send you an attached file by using the "e-mail this user" function on CP. Can you send me an e-mail, and then I can reply to you with the files?JDWpianist 17:06, 26 March 2009 (EDT)
- Please post them on Flirck and send me the names. I will take them here. Is it fine for you?
--Joaquín Martínez 12:18, 27 March 2009 (EDT)
- You can find three files here, under the set name "Musical Examples."

- Done. --Joaquín Martínez 19:45, 27 March 2009 (EDT)
- Thanks again! But one more request. One of the files ended up being too small to read. Would you mind uploading one more time from http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3591/3390826526_6df903d0e4_o.jpg? JDWpianist 20:18, 27 March 2009 (EDT)
- Done. --Joaquín Martínez 19:45, 27 March 2009 (EDT)
- My pleasure. --Joaquín Martínez 09:25, 28 March 2009 (EDT)
- Hello, good morning to you. --Joaquín Martínez 09:22, 30 March 2009 (EDT)
- And a hello from me as well!--CPalmer 09:25, 30 March 2009 (EDT)
- Thanks partners. --Joaquín Martínez 09:26, 30 March 2009 (EDT)
- You are welcome as always! --Joaquín Martínez 11:01, 3 April 2009 (EDT)
St. Matthew Passion
Hello Joaquin! AlanE and I have collaborated on an extensive page dedicated to Bach's St. Matthew Passion. Since it's timely, you might consider featuring it as an "Artwork" on the main page in the near future. Let us know what you think.
It could also use an image, perhaps an appropriate work of art like this http://eutilitariancommons.files.wordpress.com/2008/12/christ_cross.jpg or this https://www.1st-art-gallery.com/thumbnail/90235/1/Christ-Carrying-The-Cross-$28detail$29-1580s.jpg. I'm sure you could also come up with some ideas after seeing the page.
All the best! JDWpianist 12:05, 3 April 2009 (EDT)
- Thanks! Any good ideas for an image? JDWpianist 17:56, 3 April 2009 (EDT)
- Working on it. --Joaquín Martínez 17:58, 3 April 2009 (EDT)
- Ahh, lovely. Thanks for the additions! JDWpianist 18:13, 3 April 2009 (EDT)
Hello again, Joaquin! Are you getting tired of me yet? I just noticed that CP's article on Vienna mistakenly has a picture of St. Stephen's Cathedral in Passau. There are plenty of good pictures of Vienna's Stephansdom here. http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Stephansdom JDWpianist 19:05, 6 April 2009 (EDT)
Could you diminish my embarrassment, Joaquín old mate, by changing the subject heading of Piazzolla to its proper spelling of Piazzola]]? Quick! Before anyone sees. Thanks. :-) AlanE 20:34, 9 April 2009 (EDT)
- Done, --Joaquín Martínez 07:23, 10 April 2009 (EDT)
Thanks for the welcome! --RobertT 12:23, 11 April 2009 (EDT)
Joaquín, I have begun the process of moving articles about the Flu to the already existing article on Influenza, my idea is to make similar headings as I have done for Swine Flu. If you want to add to this article, or help in the moving of the other flu articles to Influenza, feel free. I tell you this because I don't think I will be able to finish it tonight, or tomorrow because of meetings, and you added the piece to the main page. --₮K/Admin/Talk 04:07, 27 April 2009 (EDT)
- OK. I will try. --Joaquín Martínez 06:35, 27 April 2009 (EDT)
- Thank you so much. We are far from the main problem, however we do our best to help. --Joaquín Martínez 10:06, 28 April 2009 (EDT)
Thanks for your artwork contributions to Conservapedia and....
Thanks for all your artwork contributions to Conservapedia especially on the front page. The artwork brightens up Conservapedia.
Being Mexican, I hope you like my various bullfighting pics which I have introduced to the front page. :) I know the liberals are quite enamored of the Darwin/Hitler pic I introduced to Conservapedia that somebody created and had on one of his anti-atheism blogs. :)
Anyways, thanks for all your artwork contributions to Conservapedia. conservative 21:51, 30 April 2009 (EDT)
- It has been always my pleasure! Thank you! --Joaquín Martínez 07:46, 1 May 2009 (EDT)
