Rangerboard discussion[edit]

Thank you for assisting me over at RB (at least I think its you). Ryūlóng 08:08, 11 August 2006 (UTC)

Yep, that's me. No problem at all. In fact, should I copy my post into the OO talk page? Perhaps centering everyone on the true issue will allow for some conversation that isn't full of constant arguing. Arrow 08:15, 11 August 2006 (UTC)
It would be good if you copied your post at RB over to the OO talk. It would clear a lot of things up, and get the RB monkeys off my back (sorry that I did not reply earlier, I usually get replies on my talk page). Ryūlóng 09:27, 11 August 2006 (UTC)

Perhaps you can chime in at Talk:Power Rangers: Mystic Force, as well, to at least contribute to the discussion. Ryūlóng 03:27, 12 August 2006 (UTC)

Re: Voice actors[edit]

The article I'm refering to in Game Informer is titled "Behind the Mic" (Issue 161, Sept 2006 pg. 18). It features Jennifer Hale and another voice actor (Cam Clarke). A box in the middle of the page lists "notable game roles" and the Metroid Prime series is listed saying that she did voice Samus Aran in those games. I'm also going to request a complete list of her works from her website if this isn't proof enough. Hopefully it'll have what I'm after. -SaturnYoshi 00:13, 10 September 2006 (UTC)

Sport Ranger[edit]

Is there anything new on this front? Was it cancelled or something? Ryūlóng 21:29, 7 October 2006 (UTC)

Defender Vest[edit]

Thanks for helping me out with fixing the page and placing my picture in the correct area of the page. RedLifeguardRanger 22:36, 3 April 2007 (UTC)

[Moved from user page][edit]

I wasn't sure if that combo did exist until I watched the episode again and you were right no shovel and crane combo sorry. Ok since you pointed it never appeared in Boukenger as well then ok I will not add it. The only reason I assumed that combo was in OO and Boukenger because of the shovel and crane being called but were damaged before they could merge with Daibouken/DriveMax Megazord. Again sorry for the confusion I cause. RedLifeguardRanger 04:34, 6 May 2007 (UTC)

DC Meetup notice[edit]

Greetings. There is going to be a Washington DC Wikipedia meetup on next Saturday, July 21st at 5pm in DC. Since you are listed in Category:Wikipedians_in_Maryland, I thought I'd invite you to come. I'm sorry about the short notice for the meeting. Hopefully we'll do somewhat better in that regard next time. If you can't come but want to make sure that you are informed of future meetings be sure to list yourself under "but let me know about future events", and if you don't want to get any future direct notices \(like this one\), you can list yourself under "I'm not interested in attending any others either" on the DC meetup page.--Gmaxwell 00:28, 15 July 2007 (UTC)

So, the Smash Brothers Series page...[edit]

Is being edited by someone who keeps checking off Sheik and Ganondorf...he then tried to use the "Do you have the game" line on me that's being used in the hidden text. Would you mind doing something? Thakn you kindly, buku! -Sukecchi 20:14, 10 August 2007 (UTC)

Super smash bros[edit]

I had NO idea how do undo that, thanks for clearing it up. DurinsBane87 01:06, 28 August 2007 (UTC)

Samus Aran[edit]

Hi. I noticed you did as I did a while back and reverted the edit by an IP who removed "female" from that certain sentence. He/She went on a rant on my talk page explaining it. Although I believe MOS says he/she's wrong, I just wanted to tell you about it so you could see his/her point of view, but please correct me if I am wrong (the last time I read MOS was about 6 months ago).

Mother Brain in Aurora Units[edit]

I can't make out the last sentence of what you wrote when you replaced my editing in the Aurora Units article. If I don't understand it, then others will have problems as well. Try to rephrase that last sentence and use the Metroid E-Mange link I provided since it's a source. Duhman0009 19:14, 6 September 2007 (UTC)

Why would being an Aurora Unit contradict the Metroid E-Manga and what are these other sources anyway? Duhman0009 19:33, 6 September 2007 (UTC)

Metroid[edit]

Sorry, I was just basing my revert on the edit summary. I'll be more careful next time. DurinsBane87 07:01, 27 September 2007 (UTC)

"That's really unnessacary"[edit]

I personally don't think that my addition to the MP: 3 Article was "unnessacary". It is, at least in my opinion, a milestone. Now, I'm not readding it unless we resolve it (and agree, not like I would if we decide otherwise) but maybe we need a third opinion or something. --Jump! Slash! Dash! Ouch! Super Mario SonicBOOM! 16:28, 27 September 2007 (UTC)

The redesign marked a change to a pure out of 10 rating style. On that notion, you could mention that Super Mario Sunshine could be given a milestone because it was one of several that got a 5/5. MP: 3 was, like I said, the first one to get a perfect ten under the new scale. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Mario Sonicboom (talkcontribs) 19:14, 27 September 2007 (UTC)


List of Japanese N64 games[edit]

I noticed your one of the people that wished there to be a list of Japanese games online for Wikipedia which I tried to make for the Nintendo 64 a few months ago, but just like when they where added to the orginal List of Nintendo 64 games they are trying to delete the new page List of Japanese Nintendo 64 games here's a link Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of Japanese Nintendo 64 games to the discussion, how about giving your view. (Floppydog66 16:05, 9 October 2007 (UTC))

Sorry[edit]

Thanks for that message I'll refrain from personal attacks. I don't know how to send messages on this thing so this is how I'm sayin it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Madhatter9max (talkcontribs) 19:16, 11 October 2007 (UTC)

requesting reason that you undid "Playable Stages" section[edit]

I am currently wondering why you undid my entry with the playable stages section at the SSBB srticle. Please respond, thanks. Spitfire 20:39, 11 October 2007 (UTC)

Playable Characters in Brawl[edit]

Who has a good chance for being in Brawl Princess Daisy (Mario Series), Amy Rose (Sonic The Hedgehog Series) or Lilina from the Fire Emblem Series? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.162.108.99 (talkcontribs)

None of them, in my opinion. Daisy will likely just be a Peach alt-color like in Melee; Lyn was an assist trophy, so the chances of any FE character besides Ike (or maybe Marth and Roy) are slim to none; and if any other Sonic character appears, it will likely be Tails or Knuckles on an outside chance.
By the way, the official article for Brawl, as well as its FAQ in the talk page, are not places to add your ideas on who will be in it. Those pages are encyclopedic entries with factual information. If you'd like to discuss who you think would be in the game, it would be better to do so on your own talk page or on a forum not related to Wikipedia. Arrowned 22:06, 15 October 2007 (UTC)

Episodes[edit]

And how do you know that episode info is confidential? I could say the last ones post on Overdrive are just rumoured as well. The Technodrome's Toilet 06:41, 17 October 2007 (UTC)

Looks like I've stepped into someone's territory. Some guy named User:Ryulong is threating me with a block. I don't know if you know this guy but he seems upset. I see you're into Legend of Zelda games so maybe I'll edit there. The Technodrome's Toilet 06:57, 17 October 2007 (UTC)


Re: List of Japanese N64 games[edit]

Sorry for the inconvenience, I also didn't know if I should make this talk or add it to the one above, because you might not expect more to be added above and might miss it. Before I sent the above message I searched for Contributors that had made changes to listing that had Japanese video games, mostly Famicom, Super Famicom, N64 and a few others like Doraemon. I was able to find that you where one of those who contributed to Famicom list.

  • 03:27, 27 June 2007 (hist) (diff) List of Famicom games‎ (Changing Zyuranger link per redirect.)

I figured if a person contributed to the list either for the better or deleting something that they didn't like at least they'd have a opinion about how the games on the Japanese pages where listed, I still thing the table version is the best, but also they might be familiar with Japanese listings and spot any mistakes in spelling and in general set up of the page, as well as telling if it had useful information or was simply more of a fan thing that wouldn't be very useful to anyone else. Thankfully it was shown to be useful and the information is required to be incorporated into the regular list of N64 games, which was what I tried to do in the first place. Sorry again, I hope you'll continue helping to make things in Japanese more clear to English users of Wikipedia. I also wrote another apology on my talk page after reading your message. (Floppydog66 13:16, 17 October 2007 (UTC))

Smash Bros. Brawl box...[edit]

Sorry. I overlooked the resolution thing. Lowered it to match the one you had, and I also updated the source (Wal-Mart's online store). I really wanted this version of the box over the one you were using because this one doesn't have that nasty ugly blue overtone. -Crimsonseiko 23:51, 17 October 2007 (UTC)

Removal of hidden SSBS tags[edit]

I took them out, but you reverted my edit, saying that they were doing some good by being there. It's not a hill to die on, since they're not harming anything, but my point is that we are only fostering the mass paranoia that those boards are infested with. You posit that they prevent people from adding them to the article, but I haven't seen any difference in the addition of unconfirmed characters for ones with tags and ones without. In addition, shortly after you reverted my removal, an IP attempted to add in Mega Man repeatedly, with the tag displayed right above the edit. Can you provide any further justification for why those tags should remain? Coreycubed (talk) 21:51, 9 January 2008 (UTC)

And again, with Jigglypuff: [1] That wasn't even one of the ones I wanted to remove (only the really fringe speculation / unknown Assist Trophies). Coreycubed (talk) 21:56, 9 January 2008 (UTC)

Nice wording on the March release hidden tag. I swear, I want to reach through the screen and whack these guys. I think if I even dared to check the slimy, gurgling pit that is SmashBoards, I'd have an aneurysm. Coreycubed (talk) 04:38, 16 January 2008 (UTC)

The spam[edit]

The link Mr. 'I don't use Wikipedia enough to register' has continually added that link since last night. He doesn't seem to want to stop. He's added it on the Smash talk page and on the Sonic Riders Zero Gravity talk page. I even wrote on his IP Address talk page and he still didn't stop. -Sukecchi (talk) 16:55, 13 January 2008 (UTC)

Reply on my talk page. -Sukecchi (talk) 17:52, 13 January 2008 (UTC)
He did it again. But this time he said in response to a user asking if he had AIM: 'I don't have AIM, but I will be here a lot: -Link to his site-'. I removed it again and linked to WP:SPAM again. -Sukecchi (talk) 01:21, 14 January 2008 (UTC)

I'm Sorry[edit]

I'm sorry, I am extremely new to wikipedia and I didn't initially know where to find a edit summary, or there even was one. I ddin't mean to jump the gun, but from my perspective it just looked like someone was constantly deleting my questions. I will make sure to check things like the FAQ in the future, but thankyou for explaining the situation to me. **BM** 00:48, 14 January 2008 (UTC)

Several months prior?[edit]

When your userpage states "I've been editing various articles on en:Wikipedia since April of 2006 under this username (for several months prior anonymously)". How many months prior do you mean by "several months prior anonymously", and what is the first month and year prior you started editing?. Mythdon (talk) 04:44, 19 January 2008 (UTC)

Gender?[edit]

Are you male or female?. I assume your male. Mythdon (talk) 02:25, 20 January 2008 (UTC)

Male. Arrowned (talk) 02:31, 20 January 2008 (UTC)
That quite obvious, because of the userboxes on your userpage. Mythdon (talk) 02:33, 20 January 2008 (UTC)
Heh. I suppose you could guess based on the sheer amount of geek interests, but I just added two userboxes to make it unquestionable. Arrowned (talk) 02:47, 20 January 2008 (UTC)

Dr. Mario in Brawl?[edit]

I really want to know if it's true that Dr. Mario is an alt costume in Brawl, because I can't find any evidence of it. The Dr. Mario page says there is some remnant code left over because they intended to include him, but didn't in the end. Any evidence? Thanks.VatoFirme (talk) 21:21, 20 February 2008 (UTC)

I was wrong; I'm sorry for confusing everybody. All the costume variations can be seen here. Arrowned (talk) 00:09, 21 February 2008 (UTC)

They actually are in ages, though the edit was correct - there are no Ore Chunks in Ages.

Just FYI.Not even Mr. Lister's Koromon survived intact. 23:46, 23 February 2008 (UTC)

My fault. I knew there was something about them that wasn't in one of the games, but it's been several years since I'd played both, and the details slipped my mind. Arrowned (talk) 23:54, 23 February 2008 (UTC)

Revert[edit]

I think it's relevant to the page, as JUSTIN BAILEY is usually publicized as a password by which you can get to the "best ending." http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Talk%3AMetroid&diff=194030665&oldid=194028875 129.174.91.116 (talk) 22:41, 25 February 2008 (UTC)

But what you're asking is going into gameguide material. Even if there is a time limit, what it is doesn't matter to the purpose of the article if you're still able to get the best ending with it. Arrowned (talk) 23:12, 25 February 2008 (UTC)

Question[edit]

from WikiProject Video games

Link I don't want to start fighting again but please GAMEFAQs, GAMESTOP, TOYSRUS. are not sources they seem to be I also thought they were sources until I went to SSBB (Super Smash Brother Brwal) page and they were all yelling at me for adding GAMEFAQs, GAMESTOP, TOYSRUS as sources.--Lbrun12415 20:09, 3 June 2008 (UTC)

Wow, be quiet. After you continuously vandalized my statement, I have decided to be done with you. - A Link to the Past (talk) 20:12, 3 June 2008 (UTC)

Are Gamefaqs, GAMESTOP, TOYSRUS sources ?--Lbrun12415 20:16, 3 June 2008 (UTC)

When it comes to release dates for games that aren't out yet, they're not reputable. GameFAQs is a user-submission site, just like Wikipedia (such sites are never used as sources if there's better alternatives). Vendors like GameStop and TRU always use "best guess" release dates until companies actually give actual confirmed ones. If the game is already out, they could probably be used, but it's best to get a better source at that point anyways, since there would be a lot more sites, including more reputable ones, who give the same data. WP:VG/DATE has more information on all this. Arrowned (talk) 21:27, 3 June 2008 (UTC)

Brawl[edit]

Hey, just wanted to ask. Do you think Brawl is ready for a second attempt at the FAC? I think I should try it, just to see. But if I nominate it, would you like to help as co-nom? I found it incredibly tiring last time to nominate an article by itself, although there should be less problems now that the article has improved drastically since. --haha169 (talk) 16:46, 26 June 2008 (UTC)

Metroid Prime/ Metroid Fusion release date.[edit]

A very good rule of thumb on release dates (especially for Nintendo games) is to actually look at what days the conflicting information tells you. For instance, various sources are reporting the release dates for MP were November 17th, 18th, and 19th of 2002. The 17th was a Sunday, the 18th was a Monday, and the 19th was a Tuesday. For Nintendo, they only release their products on 2 specific days: Sunday and Tuesday. The only time a Nintendo product is released on a Sunday, is if the product is a highly anticipated product with inevitable large sales. (Wii, NDS, NDS Lite, SSBB, Pokemon: D & P, are great examples). At the time, MP and MF were highly anticipated, but were not expected to sell above the 200K mark each for that week, thus leaving the only option to release it on a Tuesday (19th). Plus, about 99.5% of the time, no game will ever, or has ever, been officially released on a Monday. It's a shipping date. On top of all that, I was one of those people who were eagerly expecting Metroid Prime, counted down until it's release, and joyfully picked up my copy on November 19th, 2002.

I hope I clarified a few things up for you. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 209.149.164.164 (talk) 15:00, 3 July 2008 (UTC)

Metroid II:Return of Samus[edit]

On the talk page, it seems an anonymous user is upset that the information about a fan-based colorization project keeps getting deleted. On my last deletion, he posted a number of sites that apparently discuss the project, but none of them seem notable to me. Can you poke your head in and give an opinion about the matter? Thanks. King Zeal (talk) 17:03, 26 August 2008 (UTC)

Level Opacity, though a very pretty site, seems to me to be little more than the blog and project database of a single programmer, and isn't really notable. Internode, on the other hand, is an offshoot of an Australian net provider and, while not the first site I'd think of to pull a citation from, is legitimate enough to work. Arrowned (talk) 20:13, 26 August 2008 (UTC)
I apologize to both of you about, perhaps, the limited nature of the site resources I can provide. I would suggest that the reason why IGN and others haven't commented on the widespread nature of these remake projects is the fact that they are all highly illegal. Both the M2DX project (which involves modification of proprietary code and distribution of those modifications) and the full remakes violate copyright in a significant way- the former via methodology and bits of code, the latter completely since it uses Nintendo's own artwork as a foundation, PLUS is a derivative work. I just hope that, given the providing of sources, that we can at the least let the acknowledgment of the existence of these things remain. 76.28.138.83 (talk) 20:34, 26 August 2008 (UTC)
That's alright. I was a little peeved at your initial response (possibly because there's a bit of truth in it; when there's no suitable citations for information, I tend to prefer deletion over leaving a [citation needed] template up for months, as generally tends to happen), but I've always liked the idea that this information could be included in the article, and was hoping eventually a proper citation could be found that would allow it to stay in. Certainly your point about the legal validity of the hacks and remakes is probably the foremost reason the major sites don't cover it. But now that we have a workable citation, I'm pretty pleased, so thank you for providing what you were able to find. Arrowned (talk) 21:58, 26 August 2008 (UTC)

Power Rangers[edit]

Appreciate your role in keeping the clairvoyants in check until the film is a reality. I know how frustrating these persistent vandals can be, but i think it's wise to resist the impulse for a sarcastic "Thank you". It not only contributes to a more general tone of incivility, but (especially on edit summaries, where they can't be changed later), they can give an editor a bad reputation (which i very much doubt you deserve!) with colleagues. But keep yp the good work, and i'll be keeping a half an eye there too: i blocked a guy with probably at least two registered IDs and a mission to (among other things) get out the word that it's not a kids' series. [shrug!]
--Jerzyt 06:37, 28 August 2008 (UTC)

Thank you for the kudos, and for the admonition as well. I keep forgetting Wikipedia is supposed to be a more user-friendly community, and tend to let my sarcastic nature from message boards out more often than I honestly should. I'll try to tone that down from here on out. Arrowned (talk) 09:38, 28 August 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Image:SSBB Cover.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Image:SSBB Cover.jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section I2 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is an image page for a missing or corrupt image or an empty image description page for a Commons-hosted image.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on [[ Talk:Image:SSBB Cover.jpg|the talk page]] explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. frogger3140 (talk) 00:09, 9 September 2008 (UTC)

Metroid Prime 3[edit]

I happen to know that David Bandel was the real developer of Metroid Prime 3. Credit was not given due to financial and legal issues on the part of Nintendo. However, this doesn't change the fact of the matter. The edit to this effect was therefore, not vandalism.

My apologies. However, that simply changes the template message I should've used from vandalism1 to unsourced1; information like that cannot be added to an article without a verifiable source from a third-party news source. Arrowned (talk) 23:30, 25 September 2008 (UTC)

Reliable sources[edit]

TV.com and IMDB are actually not reliable sources (yes, we list both in the external links, but they are not reliable sources) - IMDB's editors do not extensively fact check, and the same goes with TV.COM. With both sites false information could be overlooked by the editors. - Now, as for Rotten Tomatoes, while I normally like it, I'm not sure if the editors simply took what was on TV.COM and/or IMDB. If you want you can get a second opinion at Wikipedia:Reliable sources/Noticeboard - WhisperToMe (talk) 22:39, 19 October 2008 (UTC)

  • Ah - Please find new sources (and restore the information once you find the good sources) :) WhisperToMe (talk) 23:28, 19 October 2008 (UTC)

Clean up assistance[edit]

Seeing as I can't find you anywhere else: Mythdon was like a bull in a china shop today when it came to removing images from PR articles. I blanket reverted him entirely and gave him a warning. Black Kite is helping out in the really severe cases, but could you take a look and do some clean up as well?—Ryūlóng (竜龙) 00:01, 1 December 2008 (UTC)

Heh. I was off RPing and nailing insulation in the ceiling of the house addition we're building; I only just got finished. Sure; I'll give you guys a hand. Arrowned (talk) 00:52, 1 December 2008 (UTC)
Both of you do not understand that excessive use of images is too much. That is why I made those changes. I emphasize that excessive use of images is too much. Do you expect me to allow too much images?. —Mythdon (talkcontribs) 01:06, 1 December 2008 (UTC)
No, we expect you to realize that your opinion may or may not properly reflect Wikipedia's actual policy and to follow said policy. Arrowned (talk) 01:09, 1 December 2008 (UTC)
Too much is too much. If I take 5 pictures of the same pizza box and upload them to Wikipedia, wouldn't you say that is too much?. —Mythdon (talkcontribs) 01:18, 1 December 2008 (UTC)
That's a pretty ridiculous argument considering what you were doing: removing one or two pictures of, at max, three or four, on articles with more than enough text to make at least three images feasible under policy. Arrowned (talk) 01:22, 1 December 2008 (UTC)
Too much is too much, and I have said it time and time again. I refuse to comply with excessively including images on articles. I'm not saying we can't use 3 or 4 images on an article. Sometimes it is actually good to have that many images on an article, but in this case, it is too much, even if just one image. I'm going to say it again, too much is too much. —Mythdon (talkcontribs) 01:29, 1 December 2008 (UTC)
Mythdon: You are interpreting policy incorrectly.Ryūlóng (竜龙) 02:42, 1 December 2008 (UTC)
What I said earlier about WP:REPOSITORY, I must agree, but I still think we should avoid going into the direction of image galleries. In my opinion, we should start controlling how many images are on a Power Rangers article before we go into the direction of image galleries. —Mythdon (talkcontribs) 17:58, 1 December 2008 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:Drivemaxdeparture01.png)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Drivemaxdeparture01.png. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 05:18, 8 December 2008 (UTC)

Username[edit]

Hello. From 2006-2007, your signature said "Arrow" rather than "Arrowned". Was this due to a username change or was "Arrow" just a signature?. —Mythdon (talkcontribs) 02:39, 10 December 2008 (UTC)

Just a signature change. I've never had the actual username "Arrow", which I would have preferred to get from day one, but it was long gone before I started at Wikipedia. Later on, I realized using Arrow in my signature with the actual account Arrowned could be confusing to others, which is why it's back to normal now. Arrowned (talk) 03:02, 10 December 2008 (UTC)

Your recent rollbacks[edit]

Hi, I recently noticed one of your rollbacks that seem unjust, and that you should have used the undo feature instead. This is not a rollbackable offense. Instead, please use the undo feature, provide a sufficient edit summary, and the save your change. Please consider this next time. Thanks!. —Mythdon t/c 02:25, 10 April 2009 (UTC)

Toranger[edit]

I am not going to revert your change, nor am I going to make immediate judgment, but I was wanting to know if you searched Google for "Huuki Sentai Toranger" after or prior to this revert or if you're searching right now. While I trust that you wouldn't make such reverts without good reason, can you please explain? Thanks. —Mythdon t/c 02:57, 2 May 2009 (UTC)

Volunteer opportunity in Bethesda, Thursday, July 16[edit]

The Wikimedia Foundation will be conducting an all-day Academy at the National Institutes of Health, in Bethesda, Maryland, on Thursday, July 16. The team that will be teaching at the Academy, a mix of paid staff and volunteers, is looking for four more volunteers to be teaching assistants, providing one-to-one assistance in workshops whenever a workshop participant has a problem following the instructional directions. (We currently have two editors signed up as teaching assistants, and are looking for a total of six.)

The NIH editing workshops are only for two hours, but volunteers are asked to meet the Wikimedia Foundation team at the hotel in Bethesda at about 7:15 a.m. (time to be finalized shortly) and to stay for the entire day, which ends at 4:30 p.m. Lunch will be provided. (The full schedule can be found here.)

The team is not necessarily looking for expert editors (though they are welcome), just people who can help novices who might get stuck when trying to do some basic things. If you've been an editor for at least 3 months, and have done at least 500 edits, you probably qualify.

If you're interested, please send John Broughton an email. If you might be interested, but would like further information, please post a note on his user talk page, so that he can respond there, and others can see what was asked.

AfD nomination of Once a Ranger[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

An editor has nominated one or more articles which you have created or worked on, for deletion. The nominated article is Once a Ranger. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also Wikipedia:Notability and "What Wikipedia is not").

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion(s) by adding your comments to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Once a Ranger (2nd nomination). Please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate.

Please note: This is an automatic notification by a bot. I have nothing to do with this article or the deletion nomination, and can't do anything about it. --Erwin85Bot (talk) 01:10, 20 February 2010 (UTC)
