Refreshing Brilliant Prose[edit]

I thought I'd let you know that the polling on the Refreshing brilliant prose pages has ended.

SHACAL[edit]

Thanks for your article on SHACAL! I've made a couple of tweaks, and it looks to be a decent start. — Matt 15:15, 5 Aug 2004 (UTC)

Carlos Martínez[edit]

Hello, I'm new in the world of Wikipedia and I've just created my own account... Now I have followed the link to this page because of the Carlos Martínez biography. I was the one who published that article, with the permission of the management of C.M. and the author of the biography. If you have any questions, please contact me: contact@carlosmime.com. The webmaster of the mentioned link was not the one who created this article about Carlos Martínez!!! And now? What are the next steps? Thanks for your help. Kind regards, Jenny, Germany (FabJF)

Thomas Washington[edit]

For Thomas Washington, this was not a copyvio. The material was from the Dictionary of American Naval Fighting Ships, as was clearly noted. This information is in the public domain. Please revert the notice. Thanks! Jinian 17:43, 27 Oct 2004 (UTC)

Kolorado[edit]

The anon that started the article is an obvious vandal, see his contributions, but this article is actually not complete nonsense. Paper Mario exists. -- [[User:Solitude|Solitude\talk]] 16:29, Nov 8, 2004 (UTC)

Operation Phantom Fury[edit]

Much thanks for the excellent edit and making The Dawn a redirect. Why didn't I think of that? [[PaulinSaudi 15:43, 9 Nov 2004 (UTC)]]

Netgate[edit]

"Vanity" is not an acceptable grounds for speedy deletion. I've removed the delete tag; if you want this gone, you'll need to put it through the WP:VfD process. --jpgordon{gab} 18:21, 30 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Hi thue,
Thanks for your feedback, it is appreciated. Is vanity an acceptable basis for speedy deletes? On the talk page of Jpgordon we had a short discussion about that. (You can see it in the history of his talk page [1] ). I pointed out that there is a lot of precedent for speedy vanity deletes, and that it is especialy appropriate given the load on vfd. In fact one other administrator (Texture) had independently from me deleted the page. He agreed with me and pointed out that vanity falls under the speedy deletion category vandalism.

The Humungous Image Tagging Project[edit]

Hi. You've helped with the Wikipedia:WikiProject Wiki Syntax, so I thought it worth alerting you to the latest and greatest of Wikipedia fixing project, User:Yann/Untagged Images, which is seeking to put copyright tags on all of the untagged images. There are probably, oh, thirty thousand or so to do (he said, reaching into the air for a large figure). But hey: they're images ... you'll get to see lots of random pretty pictures. That must be better than looking for at at and the the, non? You know you'll love it. best wishes --Tagishsimon (talk)

Article Licensing[edit]

Hi, I've started a drive to get users to multi-license all of their contributions that they've made to either (1) all U.S. state, county, and city articles or (2) all articles, using the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike (CC-by-sa) v1.0 and v2.0 Licenses or into the public domain if they prefer. The CC-by-sa license is a true free documentation license that is similar to Wikipedia's license, the GFDL, but it allows other projects, such as WikiTravel, to use our articles. Since you are among the top 2000 Wikipedians by edits, I was wondering if you would be willing to multi-license all of your contributions or at minimum those on the geographic articles. Over 90% of people asked have agreed. For More Information:

To allow us to track those users who muli-license their contributions, many users copy and paste the "{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}" template into their user page, but there are other options at Template messages/User namespace. The following examples could also copied and pasted into your user page:

Option 1
I agree to [[Wikipedia:Multi-licensing|multi-license]] all my contributions, with the exception of my user pages, as described below:
{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}

OR

Option 2
I agree to [[Wikipedia:Multi-licensing|multi-license]] all my contributions to any [[U.S. state]], county, or city article as described below:
{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}

Or if you wanted to place your work into the public domain, you could replace "{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}" with "{{MultiLicensePD}}". If you only prefer using the GFDL, I would like to know that too. Please let me know what you think at my talk page. It's important to know either way so no one keeps asking. -- Ram-Man (comment| talk)

Making feeds by screen scraping (your edit to RSS (file format))[edit]

Hello Sander123. Would you consider moving your recent change to RSS (file format) over to the Web feed page? While scraping is a topic of interest, it doesn't appear to have much to do with the RSS file format. Also in the text Feedity was misspelled as Freedity. EdJohnston 16:00, 1 November 2006 (UTC)

User talk:84.246.54.3[edit]

Actually no, I completely disagree. {{test1}} is used in circumstances where a user perhaps added "poop" or "I waz here" or some such test edit. I felt their edit here was abusive and entirely unnacceptable, and as such gave a {{test4im}} warning, which is used in cases of obvious vandalism. Is there a circumstance where you feel {{test4im}} is better used?  Glen  12:42, 30 November 2006 (UTC)

Ah, I almost always leave the article name, as an example my last three warnings; [2] [3] [4] - the exception in that case was due to the fact you actually got the revert not me. And the IP has continued editing as it happens. :)  Glen  13:18, 30 November 2006 (UTC)

Subst'ing templates[edit]

By the way, you must start using subst! See below:

When using certain template tags on talk pages, don't forget to substitute with text by adding subst: to the template tag. For example, use {{subst:test}} instead of {{test}}. This reduces server load and prevents accidental blanking of the template.  Glen  13:22, 30 November 2006 (UTC)

Chicken Little (Character Page)[edit]

Hi. I saw that you have edited this page before, and I don't know how to revert a page to its prevandalized state, so I thought I'd tell you that it has been obviously vandalized. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Jax rerun (talkcontribs) 08:41, 10 December 2006 (UTC).

et al.[edit]

Hi the correction of your bot on this page Santa Fe Independent School Dist. v. Doe turned out wrong, replacing et al by ''et al'' does not work when the text is part of a larger part of italic text (such as in a template). Sander123 09:56, 13 December 2006 (UTC)

Oops. Sorry about that. I've made a note of it so I won't make that edit again. Thanks, CmdrObot 22:02, 13 December 2006 (UTC)

Warnings new users[edit]

In your warning to User_talk:81.159.67.16 you ought to say why you didn't like the edit instead of sentencing them straight to the sandbox. Presumably you didn't like "extended Parliamentary dispute" being replaced with a link to Parliamentary ping-pong which was what happend and how it was described in the news sources at the time. You could have at least replaced it with extended Parliamentary dispute.81.159.67.16 12:55, 18 December 2006 (UTC)

article for creation[edit]

Hello Sander 123,

Thanks for bringing the "articles for creation" page to my attention, especially the Ellesmerocerida article on Wikipedia:Articles_for_creation/2006-08-23. The text appears to be sound, and though there are some modifications to make, it's an excellent starting article.

At the bottom of the submission, there's both an IP number and an author name (with email omitted). Should I include both in the edit summary? Cheers, Cephal-odd 16:40, 24 December 2006 (UTC)

Harvard referencing[edit]

I noticed that you changed some of my Harvard referencing from the depreciated style to the new style. I was unaware that the method I have been using has been depreciatd. Can you point me to a reference for the new style? Thank you. Bubba73 (talk), 02:45, 27 December 2006 (UTC)

Misleading edit summary[edit]

In this edit you labelled 'spell' you in fact radically changed the article, notably to an incorrect analysis of the game. Either way, if you are making changes to the content, 'spell' is not the correct edit summary to use. It took me a lot of digging to find that it was your edit that made those substantive changes - thankfully, another user caught it and switched it back.

A note on the content itself: The final position of the 1997 Deep Blue Game 6 is correctly judged by all major chess engines and chess scholars as being a lost position. Simply scroll to the bottom of this page for analysis by Grandmaster John Nunn - Kasparov did not resign too soon. Themindset 06:55, 28 December 2006 (UTC)

65.195.16.211[edit]

Regarding the vandalism, this is a school's IP address. I (a non-vandalizing student) will speak to the network administrator and to students suspected of vandalizing pages, but please do not penalize the entire school for the idiotic misbehavior of a few.

Rubik's Cube[edit]

I did not introduce any incorrect information to the Rubik's Cube article. I fixed the name of the movie The Pursuit of Happyness, which was previously incorrectly spelled as "Happiness." The title of the movie is deliberately misspelled with the "y," a point made very clear in the course of the film. 64.90.217.245 23:46, 29 January 2007 (UTC)

Scott Levy[edit]

Disambiguation pages are not needed in this case since there are only 2 artices that would need it. The disambiguation link at the top (that says something like "For the actor named Scott Levy, see Scott Levy (actor)", takes care of it. TJ Spyke 20:51, 12 February 2007 (UTC)

208.189.247.254[edit]

Could you please block him? He vandalised again. I'd like to block him myself, but I don't have the courage to nominate myself for adminship. Anyway, please block him. He vandalised the Talk:A Bug's Life page. Thank you, A•N•N•Afoxlover PLEASE SIGN, ANYONE!!! 20:11, 6 March 2007 (UTC)

Question[edit]

Why did you just give a final warning to someone that hasn't edited in two days? John Reaves (talk) 09:48, 7 March 2007 (UTC)

I'm going to have to revert your edits if you don't explain them. John Reaves (talk) 09:53, 7 March 2007 (UTC)

i am sorry for my pestilence i love you sorry do not block me :D:D:D:D

OOps! Didn't mean to edit your user page![edit]

Hi, I came to your user page after I saw you had rvd vandalism to the Ginestar page. Then I saw "useful" with two Ls and just automatically corrected it without thinking. Sorry! AdeMiami 23:37, 16 March 2007 (UTC)

5 vandalism warnings[edit]

Yeah, it was awfully excessive, as I was reverting them, one after the other. I was going to report it this morning, but will confess someone would catch it and do the dirty work for me. I will report it. Thanks for noticing :) Arcayne 15:49, 21 March 2007 (UTC)

Évariste Galois[edit]

Thanks for restoring the text in Évariste Galois. The vandal and I apparently edited the article almost simultaneously, and his/her most recent blanking was not restored in the reversion even though my edit appeared above it in the article history. I'm not sure how that happened. Deor 16:54, 21 March 2007 (UTC)

63.69.17.98 Strikes Again[edit]

63.69.17.98 has vandalized Black Hand. You were involved with warning him before, so I'm notifying him that he has gone ahead and violated your final warning. Feel free to take care of him, or alert those who can. User:RideABicycle/Signature 20:01, 23 March 2007 (UTC)

Talk Page Reverts[edit]

Thank you for the numerous talk page reverts, I didn't catch that it happened until just now :) I guess this person was upset at a vandalism warning I gave them 3 months ago. Ocatecir Talk 05:59, 25 April 2007 (UTC)

Alantaylor222[edit]

I requested the block. It was vandal-only, but did you see what he did to Pedophilia? --Dweller 09:37, 25 April 2007 (UTC)

I highly doubt we can rehabilitate a user with only vandalistic edits. It is standard policy to indef-block such users. However, I will post a note on their talkpage telling them the procedure for appealing a block, and another admin can review my action. Regards, – Riana 09:38, 25 April 2007 (UTC)
I endorse Riana's block. It's a vandal only account and indef blocks are the normal procedure against them. This user is free to create a new, untainted account if they wish to contribute productively in the future. By the way, 4-hour blocks are ineffective and seldom used. --Húsönd 12:56, 25 April 2007 (UTC)
When he was listed the only warning he received was 'Please do not add nonsense to Wikipedia'. No warning that blocking would be the results of his actions. It takes only little delay to slap a 3rd or 4th level warning and see what happens. It is the proper thing to do. Sander123 14:50, 25 April 2007 (UTC)
Not quite. Of course that a full set of warnings is preferable, but when a registered user is clearly making nothing but damage, then a permanent block is adequate. In fact, even without warnings sometimes, depending on the gravity of the vandalism. A vandal can of course be reformed and become a valued contributor, but what's the point in keeping an account that's been tainted with vandalism right from the beginning? In the blocked vandal's own interest, a new account is the best choice. As for IP users, by all means yes a full set of warnings is nearly always required before a block. Regards, Húsönd 00:57, 26 April 2007 (UTC)

Tin Pot Operation[edit]

Hi The Tin Pot Operation [www.tinpotoperation.com] website clearly states that they are demoing and picking songs for a new album release. The link was posted. The Gendarmerie did close the club the TPO were originally booked to play (Les Mechaniques Ondulatoires) on the day of the gig, and it was moved to Le Klub at short notice. The forum post shows the last minute venue change. My french is too poor to attempt a decent search for any mention of the closure of the first club by the police however.

BFA[edit]

I noticed you removed alot of the text from the Black forest academy page. While i would agree that some of it was ill-phrased, im sure alot of it will get re-added shortly. As an alumnus of the school, i can tell you that the things under the residence and conspiracies tabs were all a very big part of life there, and should be public knowledge. Lets hope they come back with a slightly more objective and serious tone, but even if not, i think it was better the way it was then now. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.42.32.93 (talk) 22:11, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

You are now a Reviewer[edit]

Wikipedia Reviewer.svg

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, is currently undergoing a two-month trial scheduled to end 15 August 2010.

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under pending changes. Pending changes is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial. The list of articles with pending changes awaiting review is located at Special:OldReviewedPages.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles (talk) 18:36, 19 June 2010 (UTC)
