BLP proposed deletion of Henry Hoobin

I removed the BLP proposed deletion tag you placed on Henry Hoobin because the article, though unreferenced, claims the subject died in 1921. I think he might actually be notable; I'm working on stubbing the article to remove the WP:MEMORIAL content. —KuyaBriBriTalk 22:16, 2 March 2011 (UTC)

Rejecting Edits

Why are you rejecting revisions on a page, that are completely sourced and bring the article to higher level of accuracy? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Koltorah (talkcontribs) 21:28, 28 March 2011 (UTC)

Message sent

Hi, I got a message about an article I created, which I did not create, but edited. Perhaps it was meant to go to the author?

I removed a deletion tag from an article, Natasha Wheat, which had been nominated for speedy, and you replaced it.

This article (as mentioned in my edit summary) contains very little similarity to the deleted article, as all of the references are from after the deletion, and establish notability.


Best, Ottersowls (talk) 19:04, 6 March 2011 (UTC)Ottersowls

RfA

? The user just created the request. See Wikipedia:Requests for adminship/Ankitkool1988. Eagles 24/7 (C) 20:23, 6 March 2011 (UTC)

My bad, I reverted it because the user put it there before creating the RFA, so I thought it was vandalism. Baseball Watcher 20:25, 6 March 2011 (UTC)
I understand, and it's very unlikely for the user to pass anyway. I'll leave a note on his talk page about his chances. Eagles 24/7 (C) 20:27, 6 March 2011 (UTC)

The copper toxicity cancer-coin hoax

The IP really was reverting a hoax, though doing it incorrectly. The thing about copper from coins and testicular cancer is a 4chan hoax, spread by one guy all around the nets. The citations are either lacking or about something else entirely. It's just nonsense. A search on pubmed finds no connection. I've removed it also. Find me one good cite and I'll willing to put it back, but discuss on the copper toxicity talk page first. Thanks! SBHarris 04:38, 11 March 2011 (UTC)

Vandalism removed from my user page

Thank you for removing the garbage from my user page, BaseballWatcher!

I hadn't done so since the one posting it would have just put it back again, and I'm lazy that way. Now that he sees that this is a policed and tidy place, I hope he'll quit.

Pi Approximation Day

Hi

In "Holidays and Observances" for 14th March, It was given today as "Pi Day" which was actually "Pi Approximation Day" for which I edited the same.The reasoning for this is that actual value of "Pi=22/7" which makes 22nd of July as actual "Pi Day" and approximate value of "Pi=3.14" hence March 14th was called "Pi Approximation Day".

Some time after editing the page, I found that another editor changed 3rd March as Pi Day and 22nd July as Pi Approximation Day, which is wrong.So Ur interference is sought.

Stephen Harper

You can not simply remove the edit for no legitimate reason. You have committed vandalism on the Stephen Harper web page. The fact that he was born in Toronto should appear in the brackets of the intro as my edit suggests. This is a crucial piece of information about his life. It currently stated the date he was born, but not the location. The people who read his page want to know both when and where he was born.

Stop vandalizing the Stephen Harper wiki page. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.48.156.225 (talk) 22:13, 21 March 2011 (UTC) It is not vandalism, when you write a BLP usually you would do so,

Wikipedia:Requests for adminship/SunCountryGuy01

Hi Baseball Watcher, I saw that you closed his RfA just an hour after it went live, and per WP:NOTNOW. I thought it was a bit early to make such a decision (just my opinion). Also, they are an experienced user - does NOTNOW really apply? I understand you wanted to help them avoid a bloodbath, but giving them a mere 60 minutes seems a bit short. Airplaneman 23:38, 22 March 2011 (UTC)

Yeah I gave bad judgment but I think if it gets any worse it should be closed per SNOW. Baseball Watcher 23:46, 22 March 2011 (UTC)
I just want to comment to say that you should have explained the closure to the candidate. Please do so in the future. Swarm X 00:10, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
I was gonna then the candidate reverted it. Baseball Watcher 00:12, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
Gotcha. FWIW, I think NOTNOW is a perfectly valid close for this candidate. They're obviously not experienced enough for their RfA to be taken into serious consideration. Swarm X 00:33, 23 March 2011 (UTC)

A.J. Canfield Company

Sorry, I removed your references list, thinking I accidentally hit the WikiEd button which added it. My bad. Please feel free (of course) to correct the article as you desire. :)

I picked up a six pack at the store earlier and was shocked (Shocked!) to discover there was a brand that existed that actually didn't have a Wikipedia article yet. This has been corrected, though our coverage is nowhere competing the completeness of, say, Pokemon. Starfallen 01:31, 23 March 2011 (UTC)

THE Ohio Company

I am providing information about an existing company. The page is not intended to be perceived as advertising. The organization owns the name "The Ohio Company" and has the right to provide information about the present entity so that there is no confusion about the validity of its existance. It has been confused with the historical "Ohio Company" and "Ohio Company of Associates" in wiki searches. Thank you for your attention.SueB1022 (talk) 04:00, 24 March 2011 (UTC)

Emptied Sandbox - Got Warning Message

I've been trying to access my account so I could empty the Sandbox. I used it years ago when I made and entry. I don't remember the password. I tried the 'email a new password' option but it didn't show up in my inbox. Apparently I don't have access to that email account any longer. When I had created the posting back in 2006 I didn't know that my entries in the Sandbox would remain and be searchable (Google). Better etiquette would be to leave the Sandbox empty after using it to 'tweak' an entry.

I tried everything I could find on the Wikipedia site to get access to my account. Since I could not log in to my account, I emptied the Sandbox without logging in and I got a warning message from you. How can I access the account? If you can't send me a new password, please link that old account to this one (or however you do that). Thank you. Kalana Hihia2 (talk) 22:50, 24 March 2011 (UTC)

There is really nothing to do but to just create a new account. Baseball Watcher 00:24, 25 March 2011 (UTC)

Friendly Advice

Hi Baseball Watcher! Your work in New Page Patrolling is very much appreciated -- and needed. I did however notice you recently tagged this article (now deleted) for CSD as an A7: Unremarkable Person. I encourage you to slow down with your NPP'ing, and read over the article a bit before tagging. That article, which I re-tagged as a G10: Attack Page, was certainly so, and was deleted as one. If you had taken a closer look over the article you would have seen the profanity and rude words used to describe whomever this was about. I also encourage you to take a look over WP:NPP and WP:CSD. Once again, thank you for your hard work and happy editing! All the best Tofutwitch11 (TALK) 18:56, 25 March 2011 (UTC).

Please be careful -- this was a page you tagged as a G1, but was a deleted as an A7. Even though it was deleted, it is important to get the tags right. Tofutwitch11 (TALK) 22:50, 26 March 2011 (UTC)

Switzerland

Dear Baseball watcher. I am afraid that Switzerland is a Central European Country. Before the Autumn of Nations it will be true that Switzerland is 'in the West', however the old subdivision of Europe (Eastern Europe and Western Europe) has little currency today, at least in European resources which I referenced. It is not only International Geographical Union and United Nations http://www.unisdr.org/news/v.php?id=5384, but also major media including Switzerland in Central Europe http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/country_profiles/1035212.stm. Nowadays we have the subdivisions based on culture, not political allegiance. http://shop.lonelyplanet.com/europe/central-europe-travel-guide-8/central-europe-switzerland-chapter-8 http://www.euractiv.com/en/global-europe/eu-switzerland-move-simplify-complex-bilateral-relations-news-501999 http://www.world66.com/europe/switzerland http://www.worldatlas.com/webimage/countrys/europe/ch.htm http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:CentralEurope.png

Question?

I was wondering why you are reverting on World Wrestling Entertainment? I thought the company officially changed their name to just WWE.--Mikeymike2001 (talk) 23:00, 7 April 2011 (UTC)

They did? Baseball Watcher 23:02, 7 April 2011 (UTC)
Yep, on their official company website. They released a statement saying that they were going from "World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc." to just "WWE, Inc." because Vince wants to move the wrestling company into more of a Entertainment business venture.
