Disestablishments?[edit]

An interesting category, paired with "establishments". But where do you classify "antidisestablishmentarianism"? >:) Wahkeenah 02:14, 22 March 2006 (UTC)

Nationals Disambig[edit]

Hey, I noticed that you moved the Nationals page to include (21st Century). I was just wondering why you did that. Shouldn't the previous incarnation of the Nationals get this disambig, and not the current incarnation. Just curious. Dknights411 20:39, 20 June 2006 (UTC)

Age category[edit]

Hello! If you wish, you may do both. Hopefully, this change in categorization will be quick and painless. Happy editing!

Proposed deletion of Laclede Quartet[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Laclede Quartet, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process because of the following concern:

Not particularly notable - wouldn't survive AfD if it went to one

All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because, even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.

AfD nomination of Laclede Quartet[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

I have nominated Laclede Quartet, an article that you created, for deletion. I do not think that this article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and have explained why at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Laclede Quartet. Your opinions on the matter are welcome at that same discussion page; also, you are welcome to edit the article to address these concerns. Thank you for your time.

AfD nomination of Punchball[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 Punchball. 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/Punchball. 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) 01:13, 17 December 2009 (UTC)

In addition, to ensure verifiability, all biographies should be based on reliable sources.

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) 05:16, 20 June 2010 (UTC)

Request for newspaper articles[edit]

Hi BigT2006. I am looking for specific articles from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and the St. Louis Globe-Democrat in the 1940–1985 range. The customary research databases do not include this time period for these newspapers. Since you are located in St. Louis, would you be willing to visit the Saint Louis Mercantile Library at the University of Missouri-St. Louis, where they have "St. Louis Globe Democrat, 1875-1986. AN.S2 G54y" and "St. Louis Post Dispatch, 1878 - current. AN.S2P6" on microfilm, and make copies of the articles for me? I'll list them here if you are willing to do this. Thanks, Goodvac (talk) 00:40, 29 July 2011 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited BankUnited Center, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Wells Fargo Center (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Border War[edit]

Hey BigT2006, I noticed you were Bold and moved the Border War page to the Border Showdown Page. It's nice to see people take initiative. You may not have known though that this namespace has been discussed before. The article is located at Border War following Wikipedia's Naming conventions. Though officially and for sponsorship the name was changed to "Border Showdown." The fan bases of both teams, the vernacular, and even the media (today's KC star article for instance) still refer to it as the Border War. Because this is the most used and recognizable name it should remain in that namespace. If you still wish to move it would you post something on the talk page and allow for a few days discussion? Thanks. Grey Wanderer (talk) 02:51, 4 February 2012 (UTC)
