removal of project banners[edit]

It was probably a mistake, but your recent edit to Talk:Adrian Noble removed the WPBiography banner. Errabee 16:32, 25 April 2007 (UTC)

Hanover[edit]

I have seen that you have added Hanover to the infobox on some peninsular battles. I presume this is do to the participation of the Kings German Legion in those battles. Although the legion was made up of Hanoverians it was not a unit in the Hanoverian army, it was a unit in the British Army. Carl Logan 15:07, 28 May 2007 (UTC)

Hi and welcome[edit]

Always good to see another Napoleonic editor. Let me know if I can be of assistance. Tirronan 15:21, 21 June 2007 (UTC)

Battle of Waterloo[edit]

I think what he was trying to say was that both Spain and Sweden both helped the coliation forces which they did and spain was a major operation for multiple years which would qualify. Tirronan 23:54, 25 June 2007 (UTC)

In Talk:Battle of Waterloo#References and citations I noticed that you put 7 September instead of 17 September. It is possible to get Wikipedia to automagically add signature and date at the end of a posting to a talk page by adding ~~~~ (4 tildes) at the end of the post -- See Wikipedia:Signatures amd Wikipedia:Talk page guidelines. If I have been teaching my grandmother to suck eggs and Wikipedia made the mistake sorry for troubling you with this. Regards Philip Baird Shearer 09:43, 17 September 2007 (UTC)

Reviewer permission[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 revisions, underwent a two-month trial which ended on 15 August 2010. Its continued use is still being discussed by the community, you are free to participate in such discussions. Many articles still have pending changes protection applied, however, and the ability to review pending changes continues to be of use.

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under level 1 pending changes and edits made by non-reviewers to level 2 pending changes protected articles (usually high traffic articles). Pending changes was 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.

For the guideline on reviewing, see Wikipedia:Reviewing. Being granted reviewer rights doesn't grant you status nor change how you can edit articles even with pending changes. The general help page on pending changes can be found here, and the general policy for the trial can be found here.

If you do not want this user right, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 23:41, 6 February 2011 (UTC)



Wyllyam Gardynyr[edit]

Hi I reverted your edit to Richard III of England: "Newer researches dispute these explainations as not covered by facts", referencing, "Lynda Pidgeon in :Who killed Richard III? Ricardian Bulletin, Magazine of the Richard III Society December 2012 p 48f ISSN 0308 4337". I don't think this is helpful for several reasons. I doubt the RIII Soc would count as WP:RS, and the sentence as added doesn't provide and useful information. We'd need to know why is it not "covered by facts", what the facts do support etc. Having said, that I've been unhappy about this section for quite a while. The citation tags have been there since 2009 for the quotation ""Richard’s horse was trapped in the marsh where he was slain by one of Rhys Thomas’ men, a commoner named Wyllyam Gardynyr." This person even has his own page William Gardner (knight), which is largely uncited and rather confused. I tried to find something out about the sources for this a while back, but could find nothing. If you can say what the article itself cites and what arguments it presents, maybe the content can be greatly improved. Paul B (talk) 18:26, 1 January 2013 (UTC)

Hello, sorry I am answering so late, but I visit the English language wiki only every few weeks. The article is too long to copy it and too complicated to make an extract, that would clarify the problem. If you could suggest a way to get a copy to you, I would scan it and make it available. I think, it may be of interest, even when it is from the Society! Best wishes Anne-theater (talk) 01:39, 24 January 2013 (UTC)
I've no doubt it is of interest. Just because it would not count as WP:RS does not mean it is not well researched. The rule is simply there to protect Wikipedia, not to judge the author or the article. I would be very grateful if you would send me a scan. You can email it to me. Paul B (talk) 12:05, 24 January 2013 (UTC)
The scans are on their way. I hope, they are of interest for you! Anne-theater (talk) 00:32, 29 January 2013 (UTC)
Thank you. Paul B (talk) 10:32, 29 January 2013 (UTC)
The article was very helpful. It confirms our recent speculations. See Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/William Gardner (knight). Paul B (talk) 12:36, 30 January 2013 (UTC)
