Sharon, I know your new article on lava delta has only been created within the past half an hour, but please cite your references when you enter information into this wiki. It saves time rather than looking for the cite later and it waves away plagiarism allegations. Niandra talk 08:34, 19 June 2007 (EDT)

Since it is a US government site, all the material on USGS is public domain, so it is unnecessary to cite USGS as the source, but, at your request, I will cite my sources in the future. ~ SharonTalk 16:39, 19 June 2007 (EDT)
For a potential student reading this site, how does he/she know that the material is from a U.S. Government site? They need to be able to challenge the reliability of the data. By entering a simple reference list, this eliminates any such doubt. Niandra talk 22:58, 19 June 2007 (EDT)


Hey I went to Hawaii about a month ago, I upload some pictures I took of the volcanoes there.--Will N. 10:55, 19 June 2007 (EDT)

Wow! Your trip sounds like great fun. Any pictures you have would be great. ~ SharonTalk 16:39, 19 June 2007 (EDT)
Cool I gotta get them on my comp first! Hehe then I will share. I promise.--Will N. 14:06, 24 June 2007 (EDT)



I will be ready.

I see that you blocked Harvestman for being a subtle vandal. I agree that that particular edit was improper, but given the other copyedits that he's done, I think a warning should have been sufficient, and I recommend that you unblock him (unless there's more evidence than just that). (Although having said that, I'm about to give him a warning on a separate matter.) Philip J. Rayment 08:07, 30 June 2007 (EDT)

Harvestman replaced the word "Bible" with "The so called Holy Bible" in quite a few pages. His other edits were simply small improvements in an effort to hide his vandalism. This also made him much harder to clean up after, as every single edit of his had to be checked. I feel that a block was justified in this case, as he vandalized a large number of pages. You may undo his block if you really feel that it was unjust, but you will be responsible to watch him closely for any further problems. Thanks, ~ SharonTalk 08:22, 30 June 2007 (EDT)
Okay, I didn't realise that it was more than once. It was, however, with a bot (an unauthorised one, but that's a separate issue), but one that he controlled, so that's no excuse. I've left a message on his talk page for him to contact me, and I will unblock him after he has done so (if he does at all), and subject to the outcome of that contact. Philip J. Rayment 11:23, 30 June 2007 (EDT)

It's always important to keep a close eye on new users who make large amount of edits off the bat; some of them may be to hide other ones. Good job noticing that; I probably never would have. DanH 15:11, 2 July 2007 (EDT)

Team Contest

I am greatly honored and I accept! This will be a lot of fun and a tremendous learning experience for all the competitors. Let the best team win!--Aschlafly 09:43, 2 July 2007 (EDT)

Excellent! I have added you to our team's page here. ~ SharonTalk 09:44, 2 July 2007 (EDT)

Your turn... --User:Joaquín Martínez, talk 14:54, 2 July 2007 (EDT) Pick up two. --User:Joaquín Martínez, talk 15:05, 2 July 2007 (EDT)

Thank you for selecting me. I accept. DanH 16:33, 2 July 2007 (EDT)

Excellent! Our team's page is here. ~ SharonTalk 16:34, 2 July 2007 (EDT)

I accept. Please add me to your team. (I work much better with supervision! ;-) --Ed Poor Talk 23:17, 5 July 2007 (EDT)

Great! Our team's page is here. ~ SharonTalk 06:15, 6 July 2007 (EDT)

I invited User:Conservative talk as I consider him a good option but he has not enough information about the contest. Could you please clarify him some questions he has? --User:Joaquín Martínez, talk 18:55, 6 July 2007 (EDT)

Sharon, I am completely tied up until Monday, maybe Monday evening, with family business. When do you expect the contest to begin? If it won't start until then, I would be happy to participate. --Sysop-TK /MyTalk 02:57, 7 July 2007 (EDT)

Your turn.

--User:Joaquín Martínez, talk 11:35, 8 July 2007 (EDT)

Accept. I'd be happy to participate and am honored you've asked me. Thank you. RobS 15:01, 8 July 2007 (EDT)

We are ready!

--User:Joaquín Martínez, talk 23:46, 8 July 2007 (EDT)

Your team seems to be lacking a player. --User:Joaquín Martínez, talk 17:16, 9 July 2007 (EDT)

Team Two Captain: where is your record page User:SharonS/contest for the judges to look at? For that matter, the only member of your team who has this record in place (thus far) is Andrew. Without those records, your team cannot receive credit for submissions, edits, blocks, and welcomes.

I apologize. Evidently you and most of your teammates used a lowercase "c" instead of a capital "C". Not all your teammates have complied, however; I still cannot see a directory for Ed Poor or for TK, by whatever spelling. Have your other teammates leave their record pages exactly as they are; we can see them now. -- Judge TerryHTalk 15:02, 11 July 2007 (EDT)
That was my doing, I'm sorry. I set up red links for them to use to create their page, and must have used the lowercase "c". Philip J. Rayment 09:05, 12 July 2007 (EDT)


Sharon, I just wanted to let you know that I appreciate your support of me as a judge (as per here). I like knowing that some people still like my style ;-). --Ĥøĵĭmåçħôńğtalk 13:46, 9 July 2007 (EDT)

You're welcome. You have been a good leader on this site, and fully deserve the position as judge. ~ SharonTalk 13:48, 9 July 2007 (EDT)
I agree. --User:Joaquín Martínez, talk 17:17, 9 July 2007 (EDT)

Record pages

Sharon, please notify your team that they need to create record pages, to keep track of their edits. These pages should be located at "User:UsernameGoesHere/Contest". See User:Tash/Contest for an example. Thanks, --Ĥøĵĭmåçħôńğtalk 18:45, 9 July 2007 (EDT)

Re: Team Contest

Hello. I'd like to be part of your team if there is still a space available. Bohdan 18:51, 9 July 2007 (EDT)


DeborahB. has asked to participate and I offered to Joaquin the ability to replace User:Conservative, who had misgivings about participating, with DeborahB. I hope that's OK, even though DeborahB. will make Team1 even more difficult for us to beat!--Aschlafly 14:28, 10 July 2007 (EDT)

That's fine. I'm glad it worked out. ~ SharonTalk 16:46, 10 July 2007 (EDT)


Hi, Sharon, please see my comment at talk:angina. --Ed Poor Talk 17:02, 10 July 2007 (EDT)


How do you take something off the spam filter and how do you put something back in the spam filter. I want to make a change to the homosexuality article and I am having some problems. Conservative

I forget how to do that. I'll pass your question on to Mr. Schlafly. Thanks, ~ SharonTalk 06:18, 30 July 2007 (EDT)


I saw on Mr. Schlafly's talk page that you asked him about question number 4 on the homework (drafting a law)...I don't think he's on the computer right now, so I figured I'd ask you...I'd like to know the same thing (what he meant). Did he ever respond to you? Thanks! (see you tomorrow!) DeborahB. 20:44, 19 September 2007 (EDT)

Congratulations!'re a team captain! See you next Thursday :) DeborahB. 09:13, 22 September 2007 (EDT)

Thanks! You'll be one of my first choices once we start making teams. ~ SharonTalk 09:47, 22 September 2007 (EDT)


Sharon, Tash has picked six players from his list and is awaiting confirmation from them. You can pick your six players in the meantime. Also, please pick a mascot. Let's tentatively plan to start the contest Tuesday, though we might need another day to confirm who the players are and agree completely about point system. Godspeed.--Aschlafly 19:45, 22 September 2007 (EDT)


  • Sharon, Iduan IM'd me asking about the contest, and could he join a team. I sent him to Tash, but Tash said he had already picked his team. I suggested he contact you. I don't know what the rules are for this one, or if all team members have to be on some list Andy made, or what. Anyway, he's a nice guy, pretty technical/wiki savvy, so if you are still picking, you might want to contact him! --şŷŝôρ-₮KṢρёаќǃ 15:47, 23 September 2007 (EDT)
I think we are picking from pre-approved lists this time, since the contest is part of the American Government course. If Iduan, or any other user would like to organize their own team contest they are certainly welcome to. I will keep him in mind next time I am a captain. Thanks, ~ SharonTalk 06:48, 24 September 2007 (EDT)
Daniel just asked to join our team. In Christ,--Aschlafly 18:35, 27 September 2007 (EDT)

Can I join the Contest

Hey Sharon, is there any way I can join the class team? I would like to be added as PhilipB, not CPWebmaster. But for some reason I couldn't edit this page with that account. Thanks! CPWebmaster 09:55, 28 September 2007 (EDT)

Hi Philip! I would love to have you on my team, but I'm not sure if I can. I currently have eight team members while Tash has seven. I passed your question on to Mr. Schlafly. If it turns out that you can't join, you will probably be able to participate in the next contest. Thanks, ~ SharonTalk 11:32, 28 September 2007 (EDT)
Add Philip on! I'll take this up with Tash and we can have a way of adjusting points at the end if necessary.--Aschlafly 11:39, 28 September 2007 (EDT)
Thanks! CPWebmaster 13:14, 28 September 2007 (EDT)

Sharon, please update the main page numbers when you have today's latest tally! Looks like we're still ahead!!!--Aschlafly 21:45, 29 September 2007 (EDT)

Yes it does! I've got 769.5 for us versus 564 for Airborne. I have asked Tash to confirm that number, but I am pretty sure that I counted correctly this time. Should I wait for Tash to respond before I post the scores? ~ SharonTalk 21:49, 29 September 2007 (EDT)
We can post our updated scores on our Team Galaxy page, but we should wait until he gives us an updated score before posting in the main page, I think.--Aschlafly 21:52, 29 September 2007 (EDT)
Well done, Sharon! What a fantastic two-day tally for you!--Aschlafly 22:16, 29 September 2007 (EDT)
Thanks! I just hope I can keep it up, come Monday, and the deluge of schoolwork! Overall, I think our team is doing remarkably well, and suspect we will come out on top, once Tash gets the tally set. ~ SharonTalk 22:19, 29 September 2007 (EDT)

Changing spelling in quotes

Sharon, we do prefer "offense" over "offence", but quotes have to be repeated exactly as they were originally. If "offence" was in those early quotes in American Government Lecture Three, then that less preferred spelling should remain unchanged. Thanks. By the way, our team seems to be doing well today!--Aschlafly 16:31, 29 September 2007 (EDT)

Whoops! I'll fix that now. ~ SharonTalk 16:39, 29 September 2007 (EDT)

Day 3

211 points so far for me! Godspeed.--Aschlafly 20:15, 30 September 2007 (EDT)

Thank you. I'm going to total up the points for day three so far now. I have a feeling we will once again come out on top! ~ SharonTalk 20:37, 30 September 2007 (EDT)


Let's win this contest! CPWebmaster 09:09, 5 October 2007 (EDT)

Amen! Great editing, BTW. ~ SharonTalk 09:12, 5 October 2007 (EDT)
Just wanted to let you know I updated my contest page...I've been working for the past 50 minutes or so, so I have about 100 points...make sure you add that to the final number!!!! User:DeborahB./Contest We are so gonna win...yay!! :) :) :)DeborahB. 11:50, 5 October 2007 (EDT)
Great work, Deb. I'll update the total now. We are going to win! ~ SharonTalk 11:52, 5 October 2007 (EDT)
I just updated it again...DeborahB.. I'ts 12:01 officially...WE WON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :) DeborahB. 12:01, 5 October 2007 (EDT)
YES!!! That was such an exciting finish! I can't wait to see the final point total for Team Airborne. I think we beat them by quite a bit. ~ SharonTalk 12:02, 5 October 2007 (EDT)

The new contest page looks fantastic, Sharon!!!--Aschlafly 09:04, 12 November 2007 (EST)

  • Sharon, Andy has evidently forgotten to make a protected/hidden team page for Team 2. Could you undertake to do so as a personal favor to me, and add the team members to access it? Thanks! --şyŝoρ-₮K/Ṣρёаќǃ 17:23, 12 November 2007 (EST)
I haven't figured out how to do that yet, but I am forwarding your request to Mr. Schlafly. Thanks, ~ SharonTalk 19:20, 12 November 2007 (EST)

Just a friendly reminder!

We are loosing...we need to get to work! --~BCSTalk2ME 18:28, 12 November 2007 (EST)


Sharon, did you mean "21,000" rather than "30,000" in your last edit to the main page?--Aschlafly 12:23, 16 December 2007 (EST)

Yes, Thank you for catching that! ~ SharonTalk 06:35, 17 December 2007 (EST)


Marvelous block a few minutes ago!--Aschlafly 21:53, 11 February 2008 (EST)

Thanks! ~ SharonTalk 21:53, 11 February 2008 (EST)

Editing shortcut

A Sysop cleverly inserted a period after the title for the right side of the Main page for easy editing (just click on the period). I just imitated it by inserting a tiny click-on period after the title for the left side. This makes editing the Main page easier.--Aschlafly 09:07, 15 February 2008 (EST)

That's a great idea! Thanks much! ~ SharonTalk 14:24, 15 February 2008 (EST)


Thanks for unblocking CPTest, I am using it for something I'm testing. CPWebmaster 12:55, 16 February 2008 (EST)

No problem. I knew it was you because of checkuser. ~ SharonTalk 12:56, 16 February 2008 (EST)


That's great: welcome to the contest! This one will focus on quality and insights rather than quantity.--Aschlafly 08:50, 17 February 2008 (EST)

Great idea: let's make Fox captain.--Aschlafly 13:07, 17 February 2008 (EST)


Wow, what a fantastic new entry!!!! It could become a masterpiece award-winner. It makes for a terrific kickoff. Your team has an entry, and so does ours now (Roberta McCain). Let's start!--Aschlafly 17:15, 17 February 2008 (EST)

Thank you! I'm looking forward to getting started. ~ SharonTalk 17:18, 17 February 2008 (EST)

Day One

Wow, Sharon, that's an amazing score for Day One. And it might be more than that: your Deconstruction is a good candidate for the masterpiece award of 100 points!--Aschlafly 20:32, 17 February 2008 (EST)

Thanks! I hope I can keep it up until the contest ends. Do we have an official end date yet? ~ SharonTalk 20:58, 17 February 2008 (EST)
It's up to you when to end it. We're flexible. I don't anyone to feel pressured, but a little competition is helpful to bring out the best in everyone!--Aschlafly 21:17, 17 February 2008 (EST)


A big thank you for all of your efforts in the contest, Sharon! I don't know how the final scores will pan out, but we definitely held our own! Much appreciated :D 10px Fox (talk|contribs) 06:53, 21 February 2008 (EST)

Thank you! Your contributions were amazing. Hopefully we will be able to win some of the masterpieces for 400 points. Since the point increase, these awards could change the outcome of the contest. ~ SharonTalk 07:22, 21 February 2008 (EST)
Sharon, well done in the contest! I agree with your comment that the new rules are more productive, more educational, and ... more enjoyable!--Aschlafly 08:22, 21 February 2008 (EST)


What happens? Why Image:JHF2.jpg no longer exist?

By the way that "Milkmaid" painting has already been in "Masterpiece of the week". --User:Joaquín Martínez, talk 19:34, 17 March 2008 (EDT)

Sorry about the confusion! The masterpiece we had chosen was inappropriate, and not family friendly. See the discussion on Talk:Main Page I'll find a new masterpiece. ~ SharonTalk 19:46, 17 March 2008 (EDT)
At Talk Masterpieces there are others ready to use. --User:Joaquín Martínez, talk 19:54, 17 March 2008 (EDT)

A painting


There is a contradiction about a painting. Would you like to be a judge in a debate? --User:Joaquín Martínez, talk 16:25, 14 May 2008 (EDT)

Pride and Prejudice

Excellent addition to the plot summary! I only read the book once, but I've seen three movie versions. You added many important details and plot twists. Thank you! --Ed Poor Talk 14:58, 21 May 2008 (EDT)

Glad you liked it! I had to read Pride and Prejudice as a literature assignment, and figured I would flesh out the page while the plot was fresh in my mind. ~ SharonTalk 15:34, 21 May 2008 (EDT)

You're a Sysop, right?

If so, could you please unlock my user page? Thank you. DLerner 19:42, 27 August 2008 (EDT)

A request (or sorts) episode 3 (see Aschlafly's talk page for the others)

I am curious as to whether i could please have picture upload rights before block rights?---- 50 star flag.png PhilipV I Support our Troops! 09:41, 1 January 2009 (EST)

What are your major contribs?

Hi Sharon, I am including you in the "Influential Editors" section of my new Conservapedia article. I'd like to know more about your role here and what your significant contributions have been. Thanks! AddisonDM 19:39, 7 February 2009 (EST)
