Red Sox

BOS Red Sox.png
This user is a Boston Red Sox fan.

Keep in mind that the image is copyrighted by Major League Baseball, and the Boston Red Sox, so it might not last, and you would have to be stuck using a letter which closely resembles it, as I did with the Tigers. We would have to investigate if sports emblems are authorized for use by fans in a free manner, and not for profit. Karajou 19:27, 23 April 2007 (EDT)

Bad news

Just to let you know, I wrote an official with the Detroit Tigers website about the fan use of baseball logos, and this was his reply:

"I'm sorry, but use of our marks or logos on the internet is prohibited. Major League Baseball Advanced Media has exclusive internet rights to MLB team marks and logos. The only exceptions are news gathering and reporting sites and only if the use of the logo is in conjunction with box scores or game summaries. (ESPN, Fox Sports, etc.)"

In mine and DavidR's case, we have a logo that looks almost alike, but not enough to violate the copyright; your's however, is the direct logo owned by the Red Sox, and legally it would have to go.

But, you can do a few things. You can do as we did, and find a current True-Type font that looks almost, but not quite, like the Red Sox logo; or you can take a photo of Fenway Park or a pair of red socks with a baseball, which would make it very obvious as to the team you love. Karajou 10:54, 26 April 2007 (EDT)

I love the idea of a "homemade" logo! And a zoo picture for the Tigers, right? Human 20:00, 5 May 2007 (EDT)

re:Jesus and Dead Sea Scrolls

I like the fact you want to work on Dead Sea Scrolls. I would suggest mentioning the Dead Sea Scrolls in the Bible article and then start composing your article. Do not forget to use one or more Category tags so people can find your article.

I appreciate the suggestion for the Jesus article but I don't agree with your suggestion. Conservative

How do you suggest he do that, adding a Dead Sea Scrolls section to the Bible, Conservative?
Are you completely clueless?? Rob Pommertalk
Well, he can do it now, he's a sysop! Congratulations, Mr. Martínez! Human 19:24, 9 May 2007 (EDT)
He doesn't show up on the sysop list, are you sure he is one? --Tim (CPAdmin1)talk 19:26, 9 May 2007 (EDT)

I'm sorry I may have misinterpreted Mr. Ashfly's comment here as a promotion, or at least an invitation. I guess he is just participating in the comments, and I confused his power here with the fact that he is also "just another editor" as well. Human 20:10, 9 May 2007 (EDT)

Cinco de mayo

¡Hola Joaquín Martínez! I left a reply to you on my user talk page. Gracías para la ayuda - --Taj 21:55, 5 May 2007 (EDT)


Very nice article on Tolstoy. I replaced your image of the Crimean War with his portrait. Is that OK? or do you want it put back in?Bohdan

is the image history where i got it from?Bohdan
the image was painted in 1873. Is that old enough? (here is my source) Bohdan


Hi, I don't understand your comment on my talk page. Would you clarify? DrSandstone 17:34, 8 May 2007 (EDT)

Ah, okay. Thank you. DrSandstone 11:09, 9 May 2007 (EDT)

Peter and Saint Peter

These are two separate articles. Should they be merged? Otherwise, should one be chosen (I suggest your Saint Peter article) and put a redirect from the other to the chosen one? Regardless of which article is chosen or if they are merged, the title (Peter or Saint Peter) should be chosen to be consistent for example, with Paul (Saint Paul). Leopeo 07:54, 12 May 2007 (EDT)

About Pope: you are right, I deleted Pope Benedict XVI from 'See also'. Leopeo 05:10, 13 May 2007 (EDT)

Saints' names

When you create pages I think it would be better if you used a more explicit name than just Andrew or Philip. Either call them Saint or add "the apostle" suffix. Ian St John 11:48, 13 May 2007 (EDT)

Lincoln Assassination

The pic that you submitted (Image:Lincoln3.jpg), and was removed from the Abraham Lincoln article, has a new home as the lead pic for the Lincoln Assassination article that I'm working on. Karajou 12:44, 14 May 2007 (EDT)

Highlighting Links

Hi. I believe links are only supposed to be highlighted the first time they are come across in the article. So for instance I would highlight Jesus the first time he is mentioned, but I would just leave it as Jesus each time after that. Is this your understanding as well?

Hello. Regarding Our Lady of Guadalupe, I plan to improve the referencing system. Meanwhile, you might want to take a look at the Scopes Trial source code to see a way to do it. Also, the article above has a lot of quotation marks, or what I misconstrued as quotations. Congratulations again on your sysop-ship. HeartOfGold 19:04, 16 May 2007 (EDT)

Got it

At last... Thanks! Alba 09:04, 19 May 2007 (EDT)

Your input is sought...

Please see Conservapedia:Manual_of_Style#Persons, where I added a note about adding a DEFAULTSORT tag. The DEFAULTSORT tag allows articles to be correctly alphabetized when the articles appear in lists or categories of other articles. I added some notes about individuals with multiple or concatenated surnames, and I am not sure my contribution was correct when it comes to individuals such as Vicente Fox Quesada. I assume you may have some knowledge in this area; if so, please help, but if not, my apologies. HeartOfGoldtalk 12:37, 20 May 2007 (EDT)

Juárez and not Juarez

Sure either is acceptable, no? --Sysop-TK /MyTalk 19:16, 21 May 2007 (EDT)

I'll remember that in future. Great article by the way! Fingermouse 11:21, 26 May 2007 (EDT)


Hi, I have made a change to the format, as this will allow you to get a lot more images on to a single page, and also the page now will load faster for people who may not have fast internet connections, as well as being easier to view than scrolling through the equivalent of several pages. The syntax for adding more images to the gallery is very easy, and you will see straight away how it is done when you next add more. Hope this change is okay with you :) Fox 08:47, 27 May 2007 (EDT)

Fox, explain, please? --Sysop-TK /MyTalk 06:51, 28 May 2007 (EDT)
Hi TK. Originally, JM had placed the images unformatted on the page, resulting in a vertical row of images, each of different sizes, and some quite large. This would cause quite a long loading time for some people who don't have access to DSL etc., and also meant that on opening the article, you would only see the first two images or so on your screen. I used the <gallery>>/gallery> formatting to instead place the images as thumbnails, of roughly equal size, in ordered rows, allowing more to be placed on the "page" size, all to be seen at a glance, and loading times to be dramatically reduced. Aesthetically and technically, I felt it was an improvement, but Thought it best to tip hat here to JM so that he could see what I had done and check out for himself whether it was an improvement. See my talk page for his reply :) Fox 07:11, 28 May 2007 (EDT) Added: The article in question is Painting Masterpieces, if that is what you were wondering, and the diff is here Fox 07:20, 28 May 2007 (EDT)
That is useful for userspace, particularly if you create a lot of your own images or are a photographer, and also if you like to find and upload public domain images for everyone else to check out and use if they can. It wouldn't be useful in the single instance of Painting Masterpieces, due to its dynamic nature - the gallery would change every time you uploaded an image, so your masterpieces gallery could end up suddenly having a photograph of a, for arguments sake :), baboon picking its nose :D But it is still a very handy extension, for the reasons stated above Fox 13:41, 28 May 2007 (EDT)

Image Protection.....

All uploaded images MUST be protected immediately as you do them, please! Could you help me out here and protect all you have done? Protection is Sysop only for ALL images anyone uploads.  :-) --Sysop-TK /MyTalk 06:53, 28 May 2007 (EDT)

Hello my friend. I know we've worked together on the disciples and saints improving the articles for conservapedia.
