  • Then you need to stop vandalizing the page. BoomerAB (talk) 03:27, 7 March 2009 (UTC)

Not vandalism[edit]

Please do not accuse me of a crime. False accusations are a crime itself.

Wikipedia has an error. Both Canadian banks are the 4th largest according to Wikipedia. Someone is lying. Wells Fargo Bank (talk) 01:38, 9 March 2009 (UTC)

  • I am not going to rehash what other editors have posted on your page. I apologize if the warning offended you. I have removed my warning in good faith after reading your explanations. Wikipedia is a good place...just takes some time to get used to all the community rules. Cheers. BoomerAB (talk) 02:14, 9 March 2009 (UTC)



Hi, BoomerAB. I have granted you NPWatcher per your request here. After looking over a few of your contributions, your talk page, and your block log, I feel you can be trusted with the tool. If you have any questions, feel free to drop me a note on my talk page. –Juliancolton Tropical Cyclone 19:22, 10 March 2009 (UTC)

Test page?[edit]

This edit is puzzling. What makes you think the page was a test page? Michael Hardy (talk) 19:38, 14 March 2009 (UTC)

  • Hi Michael. I was assuming good faith, and thought it may be a test page. I guess it could fall under CSD A1 as having no context. What would you classify it as? BoomerAB (talk) 19:51, 14 March 2009 (UTC)

It's obviously deficient in context, and also obviously not a reasonable speedy deletion candidate. I don't see how it could be mistaken for a test page. Michael Hardy (talk) 16:22, 15 March 2009 (UTC)

Baron de Bush[edit]

Hi - Following your tagging of Baron Freiherr von Bush of Coburg-Gotha I've done some editing, tweaking, and additional info tracking-down. Is it OK now - I wasn't quite sure what was wrong with it before, as there were plenty of wikilinks already, (have stuck a few more in) so guessing it was maybe the style/layout. Is it OK now? Thanks muchly in advance. Mabalu (talk) 03:16, 15 March 2009 (UTC)

  • Hi Mabalu. You have done a fantastic job with the article. I removed the tag, and undid the bold words in the second paragraph. Generally bold isn't used after the first paragraph. I also encourage you to add some external links to strengthen the page. Visit WP:MOS for more information. Cheers, BoomerAB (talk) 16:00, 15 March 2009 (UTC)

AfD nomination of Christianity in Haiti[edit]

An article that you have been involved in editing, Christianity in Haiti, has been listed for deletion. If you are interested in the deletion discussion, please participate by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Christianity in Haiti. Thank you.
Please contact me if you're unsure why you received this message. andy (talk) 14:34, 22 March 2009 (UTC)


Hi, thanks for all your work, but could you be a little more judicious with your tagging? You tagged H. G. Adler with {{refimprove}} when the article had nearly one inline citation per sentence, all of which were from third-party reliable sources. Regards, Dabomb87 (talk) 17:45, 22 March 2009 (UTC)

  • Ack. Sorry about that. I meant to only add a stub tag, and must have checked the other by mistake. Cheers. BoomerAB (talk) 18:03, 22 March 2009 (UTC)

You also tagged Kansas City Wizards Seasons as {{stub}} and {{unref}}, but it's a redirect so both tags are wrong! PamD (talk) 22:35, 22 March 2009 (UTC)

  • Must be something with NPWatcher, as I wouldn't blatantly add tags to a redirect page. I will try to be more careful next time. Thanks for assuming good faith! BoomerAB (talk) 00:43, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

And again: Jamie marshall and Drive by audio. It doesn't seem to happen to anyone else using NPWatcher - I don't know anything about it, but are there some settings you've set wrong? PamD (talk) 00:22, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

  • I figured out what is going on. NPWatcher will automatically follow the redirect page, but when tagging, it puts the tag onto the redirect page itself. I'm taking a break from the program, as it doesn't seem to very helpful to the process for me. BoomerAB (talk) 15:36, 28 March 2009 (UTC)

Huggle problems[edit]

Please dont be so trigger happy with huggle. If you actually look at my edit, you'll see its a good faith format fix! (talk) 00:59, 28 March 2009 (UTC)

  • I apologize. After I had made the change, I tried to revert and Huggle locked up on me. BoomerAB (talk) 15:34, 28 March 2009 (UTC)

Thurrock FC Current squad.[edit]

You removed Craig Dobson from the squad but he played on Saturday 11th December and there is no official news that he has left in the intervening four days or do you have information to the contrary? Hopefully, the weather won't cancel the forthcoming match and I will check the squad sheets to see if he is still a player. I have some other edits pending as two loan players have their loans coming to an end which may not be extended so I will batch them all together next week.

Wiki Loves Pride 2014[edit]

Hi BoomerAB. In case you are not aware, there is an upcoming campaign to improve coverage of LGBT-related topics on Wikipedia, culminating with an international edit-a-thon on June 21. See Wiki Loves Pride 2014 for more information. If you are interested, you might consider creating a page for a major city (or cities!) near you, with a list of LGBT-related articles that need to be created or improved. This would be a tremendous help to Wikipedia and coverage of LGBT culture and history. Thanks for your consideration, and please let me know if you have any questions! --Another Believer (Talk) 16:33, 9 May 2014 (UTC)
