How can you remove the history.[edit]

Hi Billinghurst,

Are administrators allowed to remove the history off the articles that have been edited.

If yes, could you do me a favor

Could you skim through any car articles and see the posts that User:EurovisionNim did between 7th July-23 September and wipe out the contributions that he did please.

Do you best and if you can't don't bother

Administrators can undertake revision deletion per the guideline. If you believe that there are edits that need such actions then please follow the process indicated on that page. — billinghurst sDrewth 10:03, 16 January 2015 (UTC)

Overlinking?[edit]

You removed a bunch of links from the Korra page that I'd added as "overlinking." They were unique within the article (and were also kind of placeholders pending a List of Characters from Legend of Korra page (or expanded Avatar Universe Characters page), so ... why is that overlinking? (I am not aware of a style guide to this effect, but there are so many styleguides that I don't even know. Is there one here? Other Avatar Universe pages seemed to be linked like that, so I followed suit.) Solarbird (talk) 05:28, 17 January 2015 (UTC)

Links are for pertinence to the article, and in the infobox linking all those descriptive words which were pertinent to the other articles, but not that article. If the other articles are like that they too are overlinked, and it was becoming a blue sea. Please see WP:OVERLINK. Multiple linking to the same page is unnecessary and it would have been better to have a universal link to the list of characters to the page in a SEE ALSO section at the tail of the article. — billinghurst sDrewth 05:46, 17 January 2015 (UTC)

User talk:Zero0000[edit]

There was another personal attack left at User talk:Zero0000 which has now been reverted - here, so it looks like a couple more revisions need to be hidden. Squinge (talk) 12:41, 21 January 2015 (UTC)

Thomas Thomas (surgeon)[edit]

I was wondering if this guy had an obituary in a Sydney newspaper. I'm drawing an almost entire blank otherwise in verifying his existence. Charles Matthews (talk) 09:18, 23 January 2015 (UTC)

Not many obits come through regular newspapers these days, and I think that a professional journal. where it is more likely if he had been a fellow of the RACS, so you may try and contact them [1]. I see an image here. Too late for death records (stop 1985 for NSW). Family history data is a NULL.

OK, thanks. I'm working on Wikidata and these unreferenced articles that come by can turn out to be hoaxes. The photo suggests not ... Charles Matthews (talk) 11:48, 23 January 2015 (UTC)
