Useful links


Hello, Korvex, and welcome to Conservapedia!

We're glad you are here to edit. We ask that you read our Editor's Guide before you edit.

At the right are some useful links for you. You can include these links on your user page by putting "{{Useful links}}" on the page. Any questions--ask!

Thanks for reading, Korvex!

If you have any questions, feel free to ask me. I noticed that you deleted information on the article Exodus of Israel without explaining. In the future, please do not delete any info, and if you do, give a reason why. Thank you for adding the well-sourced info, regardless. --1990'sguy (talk) 19:28, 12 March 2017 (EDT)
Thanks. I will ask you if I need any help with anything. I initially deleted it, but I know have changed my mind about removing the info. I do think it needs to be rephrased though and that it is misleading in some aspects, which I will try to get to. Anyways, thanks for noting this to me.Korvex (talk) 19:31, 12 March 2017 (EDT)
I'm too busy to check or do any of this, but is this and this in the book of Exodus article? If not, I recommend you add it. Thank you. --1990'sguy (talk) 23:00, 12 March 2017 (EDT)
Can I ask a question? Where can I find images to add on Conservapedia articles? I've been doing a hammer-ton of work on the page on the Book of Exodus and want to add an image to it, but I do not know where to find one. I think I have placed an image in the image requests.Korvex (talk) 20:40, 13 March 2017 (EDT)
You may want to check article categories. There are categories listed at the bottom of every article (or at least there should be). For example, the Book of Exodus article has the category Category:Old Testament Books. However, no image has that category, so you will not find any images through that. You could look at other categories. There are images at Category:Egypt and Category:Ancient Egypt, but I don't know if those would be at any value for you. You could find images elsewhere and request them at Conservapedia:Image upload requests, as I see you've already done. --1990'sguy (talk) 23:06, 13 March 2017 (EDT)
You can also use File:Egypt David Roberts.jpg, which is already linked at Exodus of Israel. --1990'sguy (talk) 23:06, 13 March 2017 (EDT)

Keep up the good work - we appreciate it.--Abcqwe (talk) 10:17, 14 March 2017 (EDT)
Thanks so much! But what exactly is 'SkipCaptcha'? Lol. I've had this account for like 4 days, so I'm still understanding the stuff about Conservapedia.Korvex (talk) 12:15, 14 March 2017 (EDT)
Nevermind, figured it out. Thanks. Makes editing much easier, as well as quickened the process of creating the new page on William F. Albright.Korvex (talk) 13:59, 14 March 2017 (EDT)

William F. Albright

Hello Korvex, I saw that William F. Albright appears to have been copied (only in part) from other sources. If this is your own work that you simply brought over to CP, there is no problem. However, if you copied someone else's work (without their permission), you will either need to obtain permission or change the article so it is not copied. If this is not done, we will have to delete the article due to copyright law. Please see Conservapedia:Guidelines#Copying From Other Sources for more information.

Regardless, thank you for your many great edits! I hope you become a regular contributor here! --1990'sguy (talk) 18:26, 14 March 2017 (EDT)

I cited the information I used. I will make sure to change exact wording in the two parts of my article so it is not exactly worded. Thanks for the heads up.Korvex (talk) 20:01, 14 March 2017 (EDT)

Two things

Hello Korvex, I would like to remind you to sign your posts whenever you post on talk pages (like here).

Also, not to shove anything on you that you don't want to do, but I've noticed that although CP is over 10 years old, we still do not have articles on every of the 66 OT and NT books. If you would be willing to create articles on them, we would appreciate that (of course, it's your choice, but it would be very helpful to CP). --1990'sguy (talk) 20:56, 21 March 2017 (EDT)

I'll try to sign my edits on future pages. As for those other biblical books, I have not read them yet (I'm currently getting through Psalms) and know very little about them. My extensive edits on Joshua (which I may continue, because I still want to add info on Ai and possibly Hazor), Exodus and Amos were primarily due to my extensive knowledge on them and the fact that I've read a good amount of scholarly literature regarding them. If I do create pages on them in the near-future, they will be rather short, although I may decide to do it. Thanks for noting this to me.Korvex (talk) 17:08, 27 March 2017 (EDT)
You're welcome. If you want to create articles of the remaining biblical books, they do not need to be long articles. Just as long as we actually have articles on the 66 books! :) --1990'sguy (talk) 17:29, 27 March 2017 (EDT)
I added Joel (Biblical book) today. Just noting.
Thanks! Please remember to sign your posts on talk pages. --1990'sguy (talk) 19:26, 29 March 2017 (EDT)

Talk:Exodus of Israel

Hello Korvex, please see Talk:Exodus of Israel. I replied to your post there. Thanks. --1990'sguy (talk) 12:22, 8 April 2017 (EDT)

Bible quotes

What translation did you use for the Bible passage from Genesis 13 in Steven Collins? There's a template specifically for Bible passages: Template:Bible quote. --1990'sguy (talk) 17:34, 5 May 2017 (EDT)

I use the HCSB. Simply copying and pasting the text of Genesis 13 I posted on Steven Collins will not be of any aid, because I cut out parts of the Genesis 13:1-12 that are irrelevant to the geography of Sodom when transferring the biblical quotation.Korvex (talk) 17:38, 5 May 2017 (EDT)

Template:Bible Cities

Hello Korvex, don't you think the OT cities should be placed above the NT cities, as the OT obviously happened first? Also, out of curiosity, are these every city in the Bible, or only certain cities? --1990'sguy (talk) 22:33, 10 May 2017 (EDT)

Placing the NT above just seemed natural to me. You could say the OT should be above because it's older, however the same argument can be made for the opposite position; I would contest that the NT cities should be placed above the OT ones because the NT is newer, and without question more people are familiar with the NT and its cities (many people have heard of Rome, one of the more prominent cities of the Bible, but I'd be hard-pressed to find as many takers on Lachish or Jericho). As for the cities, so far, I've simply recorded all the cities and towns mentioned in the Bible, this is by no means an exhaustive list (yet). If you're aware of some cities that are not yet mentioned on the template, you can drop them on my talk page or the talk page of the template and I'll add them in.Korvex (talk) 17:34, 11 May 2017 (EDT)
One more note, I would appreciate it if you could eventually get to making pages on some of the NT cities that don't exist yet. They don't need to be comprehensive, but I just want them to exist for now (but I'd advise not to make them too short, if you're in).
Be careful with your template links. For example, Philadelphia links to the modern city in Pennsylvania. JDano (talk) 01:33, 13 May 2017 (EDT)
Thanks for the notice, I already took realize of that almost right after I put in the link. There's an ancient city called Philadelphia that comes up in the Bible, but I don't see as of yet how I'm going to distinguish the two of pages on Conservapedia. Perhaps I'll make a page called Philadelphia (ancient city).Korvex (talk) 08:24, 13 May 2017 (EDT)
