LieutcoW/e[edit]

No prob man, I'll watch over Lieutcoluseng's contributions. (and to be honest, I got nothing better to do). I'm mostly a flagicon guy but I'm a volunteer. And thank you for the appreciation.ProudIrishAspie (talk) 18:51, 27 October 2013 (UTC)

Thanks. He seems like a real contributor, but he's done some things like blanking picture captions which is actually damaging to the page. I just want another set of eyes on him. Appreciate your helping. Thanks again for your contributions. BusterD (talk) 18:55, 27 October 2013 (UTC)

MfD nomination of Portal:American Civil War/Selected picture/to do[edit]

Portal:American Civil War/Selected picture/to do, a page you substantially contributed to, has been nominated for deletion. Your opinions on the matter are welcome; please participate in the discussion by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Miscellany for deletion/Portal:American Civil War/Selected picture/to do and please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~). You are free to edit the content of Portal:American Civil War/Selected picture/to do during the discussion but should not remove the miscellany for deletion template from the top of the page; such a removal will not end the deletion discussion. Thank you. Sven Manguard Wha? 03:39, 10 November 2013 (UTC)

Re: this comment - That's a relief. I sometimes worry that I'm stepping on people's toes when I do this, but I'm glad to see that isn't the case here. Sven Manguard Wha? 03:46, 10 November 2013 (UTC)
Exactly the opposite of stepping on toes. I lost my gumption on the portal after a while and my schedule hasn't allowed a bunch of time for revising. If I can be of any assistance please call on me. BusterD (talk) 04:17, 10 November 2013 (UTC)
Nope. I came in to fix one minor issue, wound up overhauling two sections, and am now done. I'm trying to clean up as many featured portals as I can, as a lot of the older FPOs are in bad shape now. Sven Manguard Wha? 04:36, 10 November 2013 (UTC)

Important Notice: Your 2013 Arbitration Committee Election vote[edit]

Greetings. Because you have already cast a vote for the 2013 Arbitration Committee Elections, I regret to inform you that due to a misconfiguration of the SecurePoll we've been forced to strike all votes and reset voting. This notice is to inform you that you will need to vote again if you want to be counted in the poll. The new poll is located at this link. You do not have to perform any additional actions other than voting again. If you have any questions, please direct them at the election commissioners. --For the Election Commissioners, v/r, TParis

The Half Barnstar Award[edit]

Thanks BusterD for The Half Barnstar Award. Yes. The Ulysses S. Grant article is difficult to get to GA because I believe his Presidency was controversial due to scandals and Reconstruction. Cmguy777 (talk) 00:52, 28 November 2013 (UTC)

Even tougher because it was previously bloated with every little trivial detail. The work clearing all that to other articles made a run at GA possible. Good work to both of you, and I'm glad to see you two could stick to the content and work out what disagreements you developed. It's heartwarming to see two established editors have legitimate good-faith conflict and still work together. BusterD (talk) 03:53, 28 November 2013 (UTC)

Deleting Talk-page material[edit]

Apologising a little late in the day for deleting material on the Talk-page for General Joseph E. Johnston. I didn't realize that this was off-limits. I just felt that it got in the way, as an obsolete sub-debate. Does it literally stay there all century? Incidentally, quite a few of my own contributions have been deleted in the past. Valetude (talk) 13:39, 30 November 2013 (UTC)

Very civilized of you to say. Per WP:TALKPAGE, we're supposed to pretty much leave the discussion for everyone to see in perpetuity. Occasionally page watchers may revert (or preferably box) inappropriate discussion. More active article talk pages might be archived from time to time to allow room for more current discussion. Of course user talk pages like this one fall under the sole discretion of the owner of the page. I could choose to delete or keep anything I like, but I never delete anything, not even template messages from bots. BusterD (talk) 14:40, 30 November 2013 (UTC)

About Bangladesh Liberation War[edit]

The reference of BBC given in no.8 in the article says, "Bangladesh government figures estimate more than three million people were killed, although independent researchers put the figure at between 300,000 and 500,000." While BBC did neither name any reference of the information nor it is their own investigation. Then, how can it be taken as a source of information?

Again check in the Bangla version page of the same article. That page give a different information.

Now, check for the number of troops in Muktibahini in Bangla edition of the article. It says, there were 100,000 troops, while the English edition says, there were 175,000 Muktibahini troops. The funny thing is, both version of the article using the same reference, but their information is different. By the way, as far as I know, The GoB have registered 300,000 freedom fighters. I am not sure they are all from Muktibahini or other troops like Mujibbahini etc. But, the sources used inthe article are not reliable for sure. plz check. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 180.234.37.10 (talk) 16:49, 7 December 2013 (UTC)

I've replied on your talk page. Thanks for bringing this to my attention. BusterD (talk) 17:45, 7 December 2013 (UTC)

Jessica Nigri, the block and the barnstar[edit]

Thanks. It's nice to know that I'm not the only one who is able to separate the wheat from the chaff on that. It's a shame you weren't around during the block, for I could've used another voice of actual sanity. I would also appreciate it if you were to express this to some of the participants in that, in particular the blocking admin and the admin who declined the block, since it might let them know that all is not right in the community with what they did. Happy Holidays, brother. :-) Nightscream (talk) 02:21, 9 December 2013 (UTC)

If you think it will help, I'd be glad to give an opinion on the subject. I've been around since 2005 and I've seen administrators get rough treatment occasionally. I'm very sensitive to the need not to have any "thin blue line" where admins protect each other in an over-loyal "us against them" manner. But I was pretty shocked to see disregarded your assertion that removing inappropriate links from a BLP didn't constitute edit-warring even if 3RR was breached (late in the discussion you correctly pointed out the exception written directly into the policy). I gave you the barnstar not because I approved of the way you handled the situation (because you could have responded in a better tone) but because when unblocked you went right back to doing what you do so well. I'm not sure I would have handled the situation exactly the way you did. In the heat of the moment, the shock of being blocked is almost overwhelmingly aggravating, as I experienced the one time I was blocked (by mistake, in a range block). But User:Niemti was certainly in the wrong. I can't agree with those who've characterized this as a content dispute. BusterD (talk) 02:54, 9 December 2013 (UTC)

Ashley Smith[edit]

Thanks. Editing is done; take a look and let me know what you think. I want to beef up the section on the recommendations from the inquest but I haven't found a link to the published document yet. I'm thinking this might be a possible Good Article at some point.Vulcan's Forge (talk) 02:34, 20 December 2013 (UTC)


Merry Christmas![edit]

Merry Christmas ^ 2[edit]

And Merry Christmas to you, Buster. I am happy to see that there are some people on Wikipedia who remember the meaning of the "happy holidays." Hal Jespersen (talk) 18:12, 25 December 2013 (UTC)

Engine.[edit]

Hey Buster, Digger here. The Page (Engine) which I modified was intentionally modified as an engine is not a motor unfortunately many people get confused, a motor is electronic and as far as I see it and Engine is an engine and a motor is powered by electricity and uses a rotor and Stator with windings, and due to this confusion people are led astray and are led to believe incorrectly that they are one and the same.

DiggerWalters (talk) 07:24, 29 December 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for messaging me. I'm not sure I agree with your assertion that motors are only electric. Another editor has agreed with me and reverted your change again. If you have a case to make, make it on the talk page for the Engine article. Again, I very much appreciate your sending me a message to explain your reasoning. It is always good to use an edit summary when making any edit to communicate to others your intention. Welcome to Wikipedia! BusterD (talk) 18:32, 29 December 2013 (UTC)

New User RufusL1948[edit]

Buster, Thanks so much for your welcome and the info. Really enjoying working on my first Wiki. RufusL1948 04:23, 31 December 2013 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by RufusL1948 (talkcontribs)

Glad to see your work on Archer. Call on me if I can help you in any way. I think your Articles for Creation project demonstrates you've put a bunch of effort in, but I'm not 100% certain the subject's notable enough for inclusion. Sources are mostly indirect. The basic guidelines for biographies are WP:BASIC and WP:ANYBIO. It's okay to use somewhat connected sources, as long as the page is anchored with multiple reliable sources independent of the subject (WP: GNG and WP:IRS). Remember to sign your talk page posts with four tildes (~~~~). Good luck! BusterD (talk) 04:33, 31 December 2013 (UTC)

Thanks so much for your assistance on this, Buster. I'll continue to work on this: ````

Nosepea68 (talk) 06:35, 1 February 2014 (UTC)

BusterD, did you bother to click on the link to Wikipedia's entry for Eric Breindel before you removed my edit to the entry about I.F. Stone? Breindel is explicitly identified in his Wikipedia entry as a leading neoconservative who was convicted of heroin possession when he was 27. These are matters of public record. It also is appropriate to include these facts along with a description of Breindel as an editor at the New York Post, when discussing his credentials as an arbiter of good citizenship, especially Stone's. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jschultz44j (talkcontribs) 20:22, 13 February 2014 (UTC)

Per your suggestion...[edit]

I’ve begun a stub User:TheVirginiaHistorian/sandbox/American Civil War history on stamps, which has been moved for me to “Articles for Creation” somehow, with one encouraging comment and one other editor collaborating. It has grown while awaiting review to five sources treating "Civil War on stamps", seven general references and 67 footnotes referring to the subjects of 99 stamps. I would appreciate any comments you may have. Still a work in progress. Thanks. TheVirginiaHistorian (talk) 20:45, 16 February 2014 (UTC)

This is an awesome start on a cool article. I'm thinking the article name will need to be changed to meet WP:NAMING. My first thought is Postage stamps in the American Civil War. My second thought is that this ought to be a list-class article, with subsections like the ones you've already established. That way we could assemble the material into a table, like List of Apple printers. BusterD (talk) 23:33, 16 February 2014 (UTC)

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.
