I don't seek a confrontation, you are a valued contributor, but Chip, Ronald Reagan was not a Fiscal Conservative?  That edit, and some other recent ones of yours that I have reverted, make me think you are sourcing liberals for that kind of revisionist thinking!  --[[User:TK|'''ṬK''']]<sub><small><small>/Admin</small></small></sub><sup>[[User_Talk:TK|/Talk]]</sup> 22:31, 18 July 2009 (EDT)
:TK, there's no sarcasm here, but when you asked the question "Ronald Reagan was not a Fiscal Conservative?" that sounds as if your saying I wrote that Ronald Reagan was not a fiscal conservative, I wrote that he is. Then a user who has a history of committing vandalism took my edit off, and you changed it back. Just what are you implying? Also, I checked out your recent contributions and you have not reverted any of my edits. Is this for real or is this some kind of a joke? [[User:Chippeterson|Chippeterson]] July 18, 2009
::No joke, just my being distracted and confused about where I was posting, I guess.  I can see that you were indeed the placer of the category, not the idiot I blocked for removing it.....sorry.  The only reversion I have done of your edits had to do with Sarah Palin, and it was minor.  I will pay better attention before posting in the future, Chip.  --[[User:TK|'''ṬK''']]<sub><small><small>/Admin</small></small></sub><sup>[[User_Talk:TK|/Talk]]</sup> 23:35, 18 July 2009 (EDT)
I understand going after the constant vandals on this site can get distracting, thanks for clarifying TK. [[User:Chippeterson|Chippeterson]] July 18, 2009

Warning: I consider some of your edits to Ted Kennedy to have been unsupported and unjustified. This is an encyclopedia and everything must be factual. This is not a political magazine. I had to clean up that entry. Please stick to the facts and avoid any defamation, or it will become necessary to block your account. Godspeed.--Aschlafly 22:21, 29 June 2007 (EDT)

Hi Chip, thanks for your efforts in creating and updating articles for Congressmen. Please be aware that Categories beginning in US are being changed to United States, so please don't change them back. If you want to help out, any categories you could change under individual Congressmen from US to United States would be appreciated. Thanks. Learn together 01:32, 24 August 2007 (EDT)

Way to go Chip! ;-) Learn together 11:04, 24 August 2007 (EDT)

Hi Chip, put an asterik "*" in front of each of the entries you've done on your user page and they'll all show up in a row. Learn together 10:29, 5 October 2007 (EDT)

Pete Domenici

Thanks a lot for your work on the Pete Domenici article! It looks great! --Tash 17:06, 5 October 2007 (EDT)


Just wanted you to know I think you have done some very good work adding to and formating the article! --₮K/Talk 01:51, 11 April 2008 (EDT)

Speaking of the McCain article, if you're going to revert my edit regarding his lapel pin, then make sure you go ahead and do the same for Barack Obama. LinusWilson 14:07, 26 April 2008 (EDT)

Even though I didn't edit that info into Barack's page. I was trying to be somewhat consistent in the site's treatment of Presidential candidates, since to do so with actual issues 'twould be stamped out like a drunken mutiny (and probably labeled as such...) LinusWilson 14:23, 26 April 2008 (EDT)


Thanks for volunteering for the Wikiproject:News. I'm just wondering, what is your Political Affiliation? --DeanStalk 18:03, 20 August 2008 (EDT)

Well, when I'm 18 I'll definitely join the Republican party. And I'm strongly conservative.
Ok, thanks for the info. I look forward to your contributions to the news project. --DeanStalk 18:33, 20 August 2008 (EDT)

You signed up to work on the Wikproject:News. What would you like to do for the project? Are you interested in [[Wikiproject:News/Suggestions|creating news articles]], wanted pages or working on the Previous News archives? --DeanStalk 14:16, 24 August 2008 (EDT)

I notice that there has been no news on this site over the protesters for the upcoming Democrat convention, there are a lot of groups trying to make this like 1968. If there's any major event that's not being covered, I'll tell you Dean.

Testing for AIDS

How is Biden stating he was tested for AIDS a controversial comment? --Jareddr 17:09, 25 August 2008 (EDT).

The crowd laughed when he said that Jareddr, because it sounded like they tested for Aids together. Or at least that's what Barack Obama thought.

I understand the crowd laughed for the way it came out. But how is it c

controversial? And, p.s., it's AIDS--all capital letters, since it's an acronym. --Jareddr 17:19, 25 August 2008 (EDT)

controversial - of, relating to, or arousing controversy. When a politician comes off saying that he was tested for AIDS with someone when he wasn't then thats clearly arousing and controversial.

Except, as was quoted, he DIDN'T say he was tested with Obama. The crowd laugh because it may have sounded that way, but reading the text, that's a pretty far stretch. "I've got tested for AIDS, I know Barack's got tested for AIDS..." Heck, I could say the same thing since I know Barack was tested for AIDS. Of course, that doesn't seem to suggest that we were tested together, nor does it make it controversial. It's a far stretch and I think it doesn't deserve inclusion in the section. --Jareddr 17:36, 25 August 2008 (EDT)

Barack Obama, and the large crowd all thought that's what it sounded like. And Barack Obama saying that he wanted to make it clear that he was not tested with Biden, then it clearly caused controversy at that debate. Therefor, making it a controversial comment. But go ahead, take it out if that's what you want.


Chippeterson, Thanks for contributing news items. When your suggested news items have been completed, they will be archived under [[Wikiproject:News/Suggestions/Archives#Chippeterson|your name]] so we can keep the suggestions page clear for new items. --DeanStalk 08:20, 28 August 2008 (EDT)

Chippeterson, I noticed you want to be first in Wikiproject:News/Suggestions. I have a suggestion for you. I added a new section called [[Wikiproject:News/Suggestions#Rewrite_current_headlines|Rewrite current headlines]]. You have a much higher chance of getting the lead if you rewrite some of these headlines. --DeanStalk 15:25, 16 September 2008 (EDT)

Obama Speech News headline

I had posted a comment on the Main Talk page regarding the accuracy of the headline you wrote on Obama's speech. DeanS has informed me that he'd prefer a direct response from you before any changes are made, so can you take a look and respond there? Thanks. --DinsdaleP 14:26, 29 August 2008 (EDT)

Removing Templates

I appreciate your attempt to add templates to the candidate pages. After having taken a longer look at them, they just seem a little out-of-place since they're tailored specifically for president and v.p., and not nominees. I'm going to take them off, but hopefully a sysop will come forward and modify the template slightly so that it can be used for nominations as well. It would only take changing a few letters here and there and it's all set. Hopefully it pulls through b/c it's informative, but just not appropriate the way it's currently designed. --Jareddr 14:56, 29 August 2008 (EDT)

O.K. Jareddr, but I do hope that a sysop adds template's for Senator's and Governor's. Just make sure that you keep the pictures.

I absolutely agree templates should be added for those positions (as well as Representatives). Sorry about the pictures, didn't realize they were embedded into the template codes. Thanks for fixing my deletions! --Jareddr 15:07, 29 August 2008 (EDT)

New Privileges

Congrats on your promotion! --Jareddr 08:41, 11 September 2008 (EDT)

Congratulations Chippeterson. Now you can upload your own photos - (non-AP) of course. ;-) --DeanStalk 10:42, 11 September 2008 (EDT)

Wow! Thank you so much! I'm going to have some fun with this.

You deserve it Chip. Good work! Learn together 14:09, 11 September 2008 (EDT)
I've been following your edits and you certainly deserved the promotion(s). One small request is to remember categories and bolding the main term, but you seem to be getting better about this. -Foxtrot 00:07, 12 September 2008 (EDT)

Harry Reid Photo

Could we use this picture instead? It's his official portrait. Thank you --Jareddr 17:36, 11 September 2008 (EDT)

I'd rather stick with the current one.

That's fine, if it's public domain. Can you please include the source of the all the photos that you upload on their image pages? Thanks.--Aschlafly 17:56, 11 September 2008 (EDT)

Aschlafly, I think I've had that photo saved for 2-3 years. But I'll copy/paste the source of the photo's from now on.

Chippeterson, you can use this fair use template from now on.

For the previous uploaded photos, add the source info to the image's talk page and I will transfer it to the image's content page. --DeanStalk 18:12, 11 September 2008 (EDT)

DeanS, I put the source for the photo's on the talk pages. The ones on Harry Reid and Michael Steele I had saved for a long time, so I replaced them with new ones with the fair use template. Chippeterson September 11 2008

Glad to see we're now using Reid's official portrait. --Jareddr 18:50, 11 September 2008 (EDT)


When uploading images, I think you should be naming them with a more descriptive filename than just a number. Perhaps something like "ReaganBush" for the last one, or "BushMedal" or something that provides more information to the users. --Jareddr 20:16, 11 September 2008 (EDT)

Replacing pages with redirects

Chip, in the cases I've replaced on of your new entries with a redirect, it was because the new information was too similar to an existing article. In the case of Classes, I noticed that the information in Class didn't match the meaning you had written, so I move your content in its place and then moved the previous content to a more specified page. Please be aware that I take into consideration why an article was created before replacing it with a redirect. --Foxtrot 18:29, 12 September 2008 (EDT)


I didn't want to start a new subject header for this. I noticed with your newest edits that you've been avoiding Category:Dictionary when you can. This makes me VERY happy :-) Thank you! -Foxtrot 19:11, 13 September 2008 (EDT)


...on getting your ton (if you're not there quite, it can only be a matter of one or two more). You're an inspiration to lazier mortals! Bugler 17:20, 14 September 2008 (EDT) I spoke too late! Well done, Chip. Bugler 17:24, 14 September 2008 (EDT)

Congratulations Chippeterson! In recognition of your superb contributions, you are featured on the Main page news section. Thanks for your efforts on the wanted articles and the news suggestions. --DeanStalk 21:31, 14 September 2008 (EDT)

Thanks DeanS. It feels really nice to be appreciated. Chippeterson September 14 2008


Chip, I know you have upload rights, but do you have block rights? There's some people putting in nonsense and I can't find anyone who's on to block them. Jeffrey W. LauttamusDiscussion 22:02, 18 September 2008 (EDT)

Sorry Jeffrey, I don't have any block rights. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Chippeterson (talk)

Chip, you didn't know it, but you DO have block rights.
20:18, September 10, 2008 Aschlafly (Talk | contribs | block) changed group membership for User:Chippeterson from Upload to Upload, Block
Now you can help block these vandals. --DeanStalk 01:11, 19 September 2008 (EDT)

That's great DeanS. I'll be sure to keep a look out.

Chip, please verify the photo source BEFORE uploading photos. Do not upload anything from AP or Reuters, they do not allow fair use. I deleted one of the photos and another one looks suspicious. See the talk pages. --DeanStalk 01:51, 26 September 2008 (EDT)

New pages

Chip, please be careful when making new pages. For example, you just created honest, but honesty already exists. HelpJazz 18:39, 20 September 2008 (EDT)

Then honest shouldn't be on the wanted pages. Chippeterson September 20 2008

If it was on the wanted pages then someone linked to it somewhere, and it needed a redirect. It's no biggie, I'm just trying to save you work in the future. In general we want nouns as the subject of an article, not adjectives. HelpJazz 20:07, 20 September 2008 (EDT)

Chip, when creating new articles, please watch out for circular definitions. I've seen several of your contributions over the last five days fall into this pattern. It makes the entries only marginally better than a red link. Examples: supervision, systemic, curvature, happiness, breakaway, enshrine, negative, descent, honest, enlighten. Please take note. -Foxtrot 12:27, 25 September 2008 (EDT)


Chippeterson, you just uploaded an image from Getty Images. We don't allow that unless you have express permission from the owner. Thanks.--Aschlafly 17:21, 3 October 2008 (EDT)

Thanks for telling me Aschlafly. I'll find something else. Chippeterson Oct 3 2008

When you upload images from whitehouse.gov (or other .gov or public domain images), use this public domain template instead of the fair use template.

Template:Public domain image
{{Public domain image |source = <source> |usernotes = <optional:user notes> }}

Another user also suggested uploaders use names relative to the image, instead of a bunch of numbers. Like you did with the Cheney image. Thanks for your contributions Chip. --DeanStalk 12:49, 2 January 2009 (EST)

Thanks TK.

No problem TK, I understand the mistake. Chippeterson


Please do not unilaterally undo another admin's block, but rather e-mail the admin in question and explain the situation to him. This procedure has been set out in the Guidelines by Mr. Schlafly. --KotomiTnandeyanen? 12:01, 16 April 2009 (EDT)
