Mr Stickman[edit]

Hey, BillyH, you must have posted mr Stickman carrying Everyking carrying Ashlee Simpson for me when I autojoined -- I probably wasn't even home. But I see them all now, excellent tightrope act! :-) I hope the Niagara Falls are involved. Bishonen | talk 18:03, 22 May 2006 (UTC).


== Hello Billy. I am philip1992 == Link to my user page: philip1992[edit]

I really like what you are doing. You my friend from now on.

100 Greatest Britons[edit]

Nice spot don't know why I put 1996 must have been think in 6' with it being 2006. Cheers. Jimmmmmmmmm 16:00, 19 July 2006 (UTC)

The BBC had clocks since the 1930s, not 1966.[edit]

[1] What do you mean by the edit summary? There were only BBC television idents from 1953. Was there a tickling clock ident on the radio? Adding an additional note about the clock idents to the prose section might help too. TransUtopian 03:04, 28 July 2006 (UTC)

I was off by a decade, but clocks were indeed in use before 1966 - this page [2] has examples of clocks dating back to 1949. BillyH 03:28, 28 July 2006 (UTC)
Fascinating link, and thank you for the info! TransUtopian 00:33, 29 July 2006 (UTC)

I need help with a personal attack against me[edit]

User:SqueakBox doesn't like me. He has insulted me in the past and, recently, he was blocked for posting the following insult in his user page: "My greatest achievements here [...] have been [...] and restoring José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero from the POV of another user who claims to write about saints." (See the entry for August 21 in his block log) My nick, Hagiographer means just that, "to write about saints", so it's clear that comment is a direct attack against me. Furthermore, when I came to the article about Zapatero SqueakBox had already been banned from editing Zapatero's editing articles by the Arbitraton Committee (what can he restore?). And, in fact, I've never contributed or deleted information from any of those articles. I simply reverted some vandalism SqueakBox introduced as part of his harassment campaing against other user who was also banned by the same Arbitration Comittee decision. So, that paragraph is pure slander.

Taking WP:NPA into account, I believe that paragraph should be deleted or, at least, marked like what it is, a personal attack. I did just that [3]. However, SqueakBox removed it and User:Guettarda protected the page here. SqueakBox has had a lot of problems with other users and, sometimes, Guettarda has taken part in them. For example, in User:SqueakBox can be found a barnstar given by User:Guettarda in which he says that SqueakBox has gone beyond the call of duty in his fight against "strange" people in the article Javier Solana. WP:NPA states clearly that comments must be about content not users so it's clear that Guettarda and SqueakBox have cooperated in, at least, dubious actions against other users. It's also clear Guettarda is biased in favor of SqueakBox. In this edit in my talk page, he implies that I like looking for conflict, that I'm obsessed with SqueakBox that I've to settle down and so on, all violation of WP:AGF and unpleasant remarks.

It mustn't be forgotten that according to WP:OWN, user pages belong to everybody and I don't believe a wikipedian has any right to transform his user page in a platform to attack other users. So Guettarda's supposed protection of SqueakBox's user page (really of SqueakBox's insults) is very difficult to defend in my opinion.

I'm simply asking fair treatment. I don't believe I have to see how the Wikipedia is populated with insults against me. I believe SqueakBox can contribute useful edits without transforming his user page into a gallery of attacks. So please, either unprotect the page so WP:OWN can be applied, or remove the negative comment or mark it as a personal attack untolerable in the Wikipedia or, at least, explain to me why I have to bear that kind of treatment. SqueakBox has been blocked for that unpleasant remark, What is the use of blocking him and then keeping the insult? Thank you. Hagiographer 08:04, 4 September 2006 (UTC)

Verity Lambert[edit]

Hello. You don't really know me, but we've occasionally edited the same pages as I am also interested in the history of British television, and I was wondering if you might be able to lend a hand with the Verity Lambert article, which I am currently trying to get up to featured article status. On its FAC page there have been some supporting votes, but also a couple of objections based around the quality of some of the prose. I have already had User:Josiah Rowe very kindly do a copyedit pass for me, but User:SandyGeorgia still has some concerns and has recommended that I get "a fresh pair of eyes" to have a look over it. As you've not, I believe, had anything to do with the article before but might be interested in the subject matter, I was wondering if you could possibly spare the time to give it the once-over? Many thanks. Angmering 18:57, 10 October 2006 (UTC)

Cheers for having a look at it, most kind of you! Angmering 23:07, 10 October 2006 (UTC)

Price Is Right[edit]

Aahh, flattery :)) I have long abandoned the throne, though, and I am afraid I never had much interest in game shows. To further complicate the matters, there were no notability criteria for TV shows in place when I used to work on years in television, so I have no idea whether the additions above were helpful or not. Sorry!—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); 00:18, 3 November 2006 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Just a quick note to say thanks for fixing the Up Series page I appreciate the time you took to correct this and the quickness with which you did it. Thanks again. MarnetteD | Talk 20:47, 3 December 2006 (UTC)

Deal or no deal[edit]

Hi - I notice you've done a number of edits to the page Deal or No Deal (UK game show). I'm a bit concerned at the way the article is put together, and have added some tags to the top of the page and put a comment in the talk page. As I'm not an expert on the subject, and have not had anything to do with putting it together, I'd quite like the opinion of those that have, if you could spare a moment or two. Thanks. --John24601 16:57, 19 January 2007 (UTC)

Unspecified source for Image:Granadaident1960s.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Granadaident1960s.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, then you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, then their copyright should also be acknowledged.

As well as adding the source, please add a proper copyright licensing tag if the file doesn't have one already. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self-no-disclaimers}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Fair use, use a tag such as {{Non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 21:27, 14 April 2007 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.   REDVERS  SЯEVDEЯ  21:27, 14 April 2007 (UTC)

You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable under fair use (see our fair use policy).

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

Respect Thread Conversions[edit]

I'm looking for folks to help convert Respect Threads to wiki formatting on Project Fanboy: WikiFans. Respect Threads, showcase scans of feats performed by comic book characters and have gained an audience on several comic book message boards. A few other wiki editors and myself are trying to convert them from the unprofessional look of a bunch of posts on a message board to the formatting common with WikiMedia wiki's. To view an example of what we're doing, here is a link to Respect Silver Surfer.

I was wondering if you might have time to contribute your comic book knowledge and/or scans of comic book characters performing feats, and help us out with our Respect Articles project?Millennium Cowboy (talk) 02:16, 27 July 2008 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for File:Britain's Bounciest Weather.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Britain's Bounciest Weather.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the file description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' 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 "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. —Snigbrook 09:07, 7 May 2009 (UTC)

Can you help me source a sentence?[edit]

Hi, a long time ago you added a sentence about "CD singles were first made eligible for the UK Singles Chart in 1987". I'm currently working on a featured list candidacy and was wondering where you got this from and if you could provide me with any kind of reference that would allow to add this fact to the article.

MSU Interview[edit]

Dear BillyH,


My name is Jonathan Obar user:Jaobar, I'm a professor in the College of Communication Arts and Sciences at Michigan State University and a Teaching Fellow with the Wikimedia Foundation's Education Program. This semester I've been running a little experiment at MSU, a class where we teach students about becoming Wikipedia administrators. Not a lot is known about your community, and our students (who are fascinated by wiki-culture by the way!) want to learn how you do what you do, and why you do it. A while back I proposed this idea (the class) to the community HERE, were it was met mainly with positive feedback. Anyhow, I'd like my students to speak with a few administrators to get a sense of admin experiences, training, motivations, likes, dislikes, etc. We were wondering if you'd be interested in speaking with one of our students.


So a few things about the interviews:

  • Interviews will last between 15 and 30 minutes.
  • Interviews can be conducted over skype (preferred), IRC or email. (You choose the form of communication based upon your comfort level, time, etc.)
  • All interviews will be completely anonymous, meaning that you (real name and/or pseudonym) will never be identified in any of our materials, unless you give the interviewer permission to do so.
  • All interviews will be completely voluntary. You are under no obligation to say yes to an interview, and can say no and stop or leave the interview at any time.
  • The entire interview process is being overseen by MSU's institutional review board (ethics review). This means that all questions have been approved by the university and all students have been trained how to conduct interviews ethically and properly.


Bottom line is that we really need your help, and would really appreciate the opportunity to speak with you. If interested, please send me an email at obar@msu.edu (to maintain anonymity) and I will add your name to my offline contact list. If you feel comfortable doing so, you can post your name HERE instead.

If you have questions or concerns at any time, feel free to email me at obar@msu.edu. I will be more than happy to speak with you.

Thanks in advance for your help. We have a lot to learn from you.

Sincerely,

Jonathan Obar --Jaobar (talk) 15:51, 8 February 2012 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Omero Mumba[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Omero Mumba, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G4 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be a repost of material that was previously deleted following a deletion debate, such as at articles for deletion. Under the specified criteria, where an article has substantially identical content to that of an article deleted after debate, and any changes in the content do not address the reasons for which the material was previously deleted, it may be deleted at any time.

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. Bgwhite (talk) 07:21, 12 May 2012 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Vid Kid[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Vid Kid has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Fails WP:GNG. No sources found.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Piccadilly Circus[edit]

Maybe a silly question, but how was the Sanyo sign at Piccadilly Circus modified in 2004? I've looked at photos before and after, and they look identical, and find no source for any modification. 109.176.199.203 (talk) 14:03, 25 June 2013 (UTC)

It took me a while to notice too! By 2004 the sign had become faded and the bright white background lamps were becoming a murky grey, so an almost identical replacement was made. The most notable difference is the middle 'N' which is longer and spikier than before.
Here's some Flickr photos that show the difference clearly: http://www.flickr.com/photos/raafje/156491850/ (August 2004) and http://www.flickr.com/photos/thekillerbiscuit/24423612/ (June 2005). For definite proof, http://www.flickr.com/photos/petri/439628/ shows the sign covered with scaffolding during September 2004.
Hope that helps! BillyH 14:56, 25 June 2013 (UTC)
