Ironman Triathlon[edit]

Hi there, yes indeed I did put that in the wrong place. I failed to notice that the 70.3 has it's own page. And I am pleased to see that Ireland is listed there. Best of luck. DubhEire (talk)

Hey. 70.3 this year is in Brasilia as per ironman's website [1]. Your revert is wrong. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dbatwa (talkcontribs) 13:02, 14 June 2013 (UTC)

I appreciate you good faith edits, but despite the 2013 race date, Brasilia will be the host for the 2014 series race - which isn't reflected in the chart yet b/c the 2014 series schedule isn't final. Once a 2014 column has been added to the 70.3 article it will properly reflect the Brasilia location. The 2013 series, which runs from August 19, 2012 through August 11, 2013,[2] had a race already occur in Penha on August 25, 2012. BarkeepChat/$ 13:13, 14 June 2013 (UTC)

Upcoming Wikimedia events in Missouri and Kansas![edit]

You're invited to 3 exciting events Wikipedians are planning in your region this June—a tour and meetup at the National Archives in Kansas City, and Wiknics in Wichita and St. Louis:

not vandalism, please...[edit]

Hello! I'm a bit stunned that you identified and reverted my recent edit to FBI Most Wanted Terrorists. I follow 28bot around and revert test edits, junk and stray stuff it identifies as vandalism. My edit was plainly just removing vandalism (an example image jpg file from the article and I identified in my edit summary that). May I get a reprieve or pardon?

Please, I'm not a vandal so please be careful to examine what you are identifying as that. Sorry, I can't yet do all those diffs and links back to my edit....all the best Fylbecatulous talk 15:07, 29 May 2012 (UTC)

My intention was to restore the damage done by, not your edit. Unfortunately the edit I made did not completely come out the way. Don't take offense. If I could undo the edit summary I would. You're fine. BarkeepChat/$ 19:22, 29 May 2012 (UTC)

2013 Nebraska Football[edit]

I don't feel the page is overlinked. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:32, 11 October 2013 (UTC)

You'll have to be more specific because your edits, in my view, are in contrast to to last paragraph of the WP:Overlink policy. BarkeepChat/$ 02:23, 12 October 2013 (UTC)

Alan Lipman[edit]

Hello, Barkeep. I see that you have made repeated attempts to protect Alan Lipman against disruptive editing. Your most recent edit to the article was 6 months ago, but you made numerous edits over a period of nearly 3 years (from August 2010 to April 2013), so I thought you might be interested to see discussion relating to this article on my talk page. My main comment on it is here. JamesBWatson (talk) 12:50, 30 October 2013 (UTC)

Thank you for the heads-up and your edits to reign in some of that editing. I had unwatched the article because I grew tired of the editor(s) who continuously felt the need to add every single television appearance to the article and perhaps lacked the boldness to flat out do a mass removal of the trivial and COI content. I agree with your talking points made to the contributor. BarkeepChat/$ 13:58, 30 October 2013 (UTC)

April 2014[edit]

Information icon Welcome to Wikipedia. It might not have been your intention, but your recent edit removed maintenance templates from 2014 Ironman World Championship. When removing maintenance templates, please be sure to either resolve the problem that the template refers to, or give a valid reason for the removal in the edit summary. If this was a mistake, don't worry, as your removal of this template has been reverted. Take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia, and if you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. Thank you. Armbrust The Homunculus 17:16, 23 April 2014 (UTC)

Please discuss on the article(s)'s talk page on what you feel needs updating. BarkeepChat/$ 17:18, 23 April 2014 (UTC)

Concerning Proper Referencing[edit]

No, I do not believe that you made a mistake by removing my changes to the Ocarina page. You are correct in the fact that I did not properly reference any of the information I added. This is because there are not many books on the ocarina, and perhaps only one or two actually concerning its history. There also aren't any Internet articles that can be very much relied upon (such as the citations for, a site that has been created by a somewhat knowledgeable but rather uninformed individual). The information I had posted was obtained from years of experience and study - I'd like to point out that I more than doubled the section on the ocarina's history. As I will not cite myself as a source, it seems that you've got me beat. While I can personally guarantee that the information was all true, that won't count for proper verification. In all honesty, I was just trying to be helpful and perhaps correct some misguided notions. But I will not attempt it again. If you and this site are willing to pass up the information I've offered, then it's your loss. I understand your concerns over information that has not been cited properly. For all you know, I could be a crazy person who made all that up. And, though I might tell you it was true, there is no way to definitively convince you otherwise. I might have spent my entire night on that page. I might have been proud of the wrongs I had righted. I might have been disappointed when I checked my email this morning. But I understand and accept your decision (despite being somewhat of a disservice to anyone interested in the ocarina). No hard feelings.
