Template[edit]

Hi there. Yeah, the template will be settled soon. It is currently being updated for a proposed merger of UK schools templates (details here). Very sorry for the inconvenience... but should be finished by the end of the week. (chgallen 21:01, 4 June 2007 (UTC))

Frauenfußball-Template[edit]

Hey there, I think it is a) unnecessary and b) ugly to have this | at the end of the respective lines of the various football league templates. Please reconsider your edit. Thanks. --Madcynic 19:02, 30 August 2007 (UTC)

Well, I've been trying to get them to look the same, but there are quite a lot of them. I know about the font-size issue, but so far I am not aware of any way to fix that. I don't know what boday might issue a specification, so far I've just decided to remove these | at the end of line. I personally prefer this over bulltepoints or dots as in my mind it is a clearer division.
From what I can tell Dudesleeper agrees, at least he did on the Regionalliga Nord template. If you have any ideas, you're of course welcome to share them. --Madcynic 13:52, 1 September 2007 (UTC)

Ysgol cymraeg treganna[edit]

Nice one on the refs and info, my browser keeps crashing (running out of CPU) so I could'nt get any. Cf38 (talk) 21:35, 20 November 2007 (UTC)

Colin Thatcher[edit]

I notice your addition of People from Toronto to this article. Could you explain? --KenWalker | Talk 21:49, 16 June 2008 (UTC)

In the category People from Toronto, it says 'Natives of the areas incorporated within the City of Toronto are listed on this page'. The article Colin Thatcher states in the introductory sentence 'Wilbert Colin Thatcher (born 25 August 1938 in Toronto)'. As far as I have been able to make out, birth is normally a sufficient criterion for inclusion of a biographical article in a 'People from ...' category. If my edit is incorrect, please let me know why, so that I can avoid such errors in the future.Coyets (talk) 06:47, 17 June 2008 (UTC)
You are absolutely right, I should have had a closer look at the article. Since his father was born and died in Saskatchewan and CT continued the family political and ranching operations there and I think he is there to this day, I took it for granted that CT was born in Saskatchewan. Not so. Thanks for the response! --KenWalker | Talk 19:49, 17 June 2008 (UTC)

German Fact Tag[edit]

Sometime ago you corrected a link to a German Wikipedia article for Gretchen Klotz on the english page for Wheaton College (Illinois). I am trying to update the alumni section of the Wheaton College article and provide some references. The only reference to Gretchen Klotz attending Wheaton College that I can find is on her German wikipedia page and there is no reference on that page. Not speaking German, I may be missing something when I google her, however. Does the German wikipedia use something similar to the fact tag that could be added to the German article? If so, would you mind doing that so I can try and hunt down a source? Thanks!

Oxford Wikimania 2010 and Wikimedia UK v2.0 Notice[edit]

Hi,

As a regularly contributing UK Wikipedian, we were wondering if you wanted to contribute to the Oxford bid to host the 2010 Wikimania conference. Please see here for details of how to get involved, we need all the help we can get if we are to put in a compelling bid.

We are also in the process of forming a new UK Wikimedia chapter to replace the soon to be folded old one. If you are interested in helping shape our plans, showing your support or becoming a future member or board member, please head over to the Wikimedia UK v2.0 page and let us know. We plan on holding an election in the next month to find the initial board, who will oversee the process of founding the company and accepting membership applications. They will then call an AGM to formally elect a new board who after obtaining charitable status will start the fund raising, promotion and active support for the UK Wikimedian community for which the chapter is being founded.

You may also wish to attend the next London meet-up at which both of these issues will be discussed. If you can't attend this meetup, you may want to watch Wikipedia:Meetup, for updates on future meets.

We look forward to hearing from you soon, and we send our apologies for this automated intrusion onto your talk page!

Lionel Cooper (mathematician)[edit]

Dear Coyets, thanks for starting Lionel Cooper (mathematician). It's a nice article. I'll also try to expand it. Have a nice day! :-) AdjustShift (talk) 15:53, 15 October 2008 (UTC)

Goomburra railway line, Queensland[edit]

Hi, thanks for pointing out my typo on the Goomburra railway line, Queensland article. I corrected the date from 1987 to 1897, the correct opening date can be found in one of the references. I've also added the cat for railway lines opened in 1897 as you requested and will get around to doing it for other Queensland railway lines one day. Also, would the year of opening be when the first section of line opened, or when the entire length of the line was completed? Cheers, --TripleThree (talk) 06:03, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

Dana Vávrová[edit]

You are welcome, Coyets. As a child, I did fall in love with her, when she acted in "Ať žijí duchové!" - a great film with excellent music! I almost forgot this - and now I see, she´s dead... Too bad. Thanks for that article. --Vejvančický (talk) 10:15, 12 March 2009 (UTC)

Kievan Rus'[edit]

Your welcome, mate, and I'm glad to be of assistance. I hope to work with you again soon! Cheers! --Laurinavicius (talk) 21:46, 10 April 2009 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Vendula Frentova[edit]

A tag has been placed on Vendula Frentova by an automated utility, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under the criteria for speedy deletion, because it seems to be a blank article providing no content to the reader. It also seems that you blanked the article as well, possibly as an attempt to delete the page. Usually, speedy deletion tags should only be removed by administrators. However, since you are the only contributor to the page, and since the page was tagged under the assumption that you wanted it deleted, you may remove it yourself if you plan to expand or recreate the article. This is a notice from User:MichaelkourlasBot, an automated utility (bot). If you think it is a false positive, report it here. Thanks, MichaelkourlasBot (talk) 21:07, 17 January 2010 (UTC).

Unreferenced BLPs[edit]

Information.svg Hello Coyets! Thank you for your contributions. I am a bot alerting you that 1 of the articles that you created is tagged as an Unreferenced Biography of a Living Person. The biographies of living persons policy requires that all personal or potentially controversial information be sourced. In addition, to ensure verifiability, all biographies should be based on reliable sources. If you were to bring this article up to standards, it would greatly help us with the current 1,909 article backlog. Once the article is adequately referenced, please remove the {{unreferencedBLP}} tag. Here is the article:

  1. Lea Antonoplis - Find sources: "Lea Antonoplis" – news · newspapers · books · scholar · JSTOR · free images

Thanks!--DASHBot (talk) 11:25, 25 January 2010 (UTC)

Categories[edit]

I notice you added categories to the Third Avenue El article. I'm new here. Is there a directory of categories I can look at? --ScottyBerg (talk) 17:57, 27 January 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for your answer. Very helpful! --ScottyBerg (talk) 21:15, 27 January 2010 (UTC)

CfD nomination of Category:Defunct Argentine football competitions[edit]

I have nominated Category:Defunct Argentine football competitions (edit|talk|history|links|watch|logs) for renaming to Category:Defunct football competitions in Argentina (edit|talk|history|links|watch|logs). Your opinions on the matter are welcome; please participate in the discussion by adding your comments at the discussion page. Thank you. Bradjamesbrown (talk) 11:13, 29 January 2010 (UTC)

RTV Studio B[edit]

On 28 May 2008 you deleted RTV Studio B because the article did not indicate the significance and importance of the subject. I have collected a number of sources which seem to me to indicate that this radio and television broadcaster does have sufficient significance and importance to justify it having an article in Wikipedia. I was therefore intending to write such an article, but, after reading "If you are recreating a page similar to the previously deleted page, or are unsure, please first contact the deleting administrator using the information provided below.", I was unsure. So, I thought it best to contact you before proceeding, and I would be grateful for a response to guide me in deciding whether to write such an article or not. Coyets (talk) 11:32, 1 February 2010 (UTC)

RTV Studio B has been undeleted, you may find additional information in the history. I've added an automatic deletion tag to the article, and it will be deleted again in 7 days if content is not improved. Please add to the article to show it's notability, and be sure to include references. Thank you, — xaosflux Talk 12:36, 1 February 2010 (UTC)
Please do not remove the WP:PROD tag before adding content and sources. Thanks again, — xaosflux Talk 12:36, 1 February 2010 (UTC)

Your edit at University of Lagos[edit]

Hi there. It would have been better to simply add the newly created University of Lagos category, rather than removing 2 valid categories from the University of Lagos article. I have reverted your edit and re-added the new University of Lagos category. Amsaim (talk) 14:09, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

Autoreviewer[edit]

Hi Coyets, I just came across one of your articles at newpage patrol, and was surprised to see that an editor who has been contributing articles since 2006 hadn't already been approved as an wp:Autoreviewer. So I've taken the liberty of rectifying that. ϢereSpielChequers 14:05, 16 February 2010 (UTC)

Thank you for your changes[edit]

I have seen them and I really appreciate. Unfortunatly I am not so fluent in English, but I like to contribute nevertheless and I am always happy if someone corrects my grammar or spelling.--Greatgreenwhale (talk) 17:18, 17 February 2010 (UTC)

York Against Cancer[edit]

That's really odd and being as it was almost four years ago I'm not sure. I suspect that it might have had something to do with this but those edits were eight months apart. I removed it as there really is no need for it. Cheers. something lame from CBW 18:22, 19 February 2010 (UTC)

Geography corrections[edit]

Appreciate the accuracy, but you should bear sentence structure in mind if you're replacing "Hampshire" with "Hampshire now Dorset" across biography articles - a sentence like "(born 18 May 1940 in Bournemouth, Hampshire now Dorset)" is a little confusing to read, and may be better as just "(born 18 May 1940 in Bournemouth, England)". Thanks. --McGeddon (talk) 11:50, 30 March 2010 (UTC)

Capitalisation[edit]

Dear Coyets,

Thank you for your interest in the Eurovision Song Contest article. I see you changed some capitalisations from "Contest" to "contest". In fact the original capitalisation was not done in error: these sentences refer to "the Contest" - as a shorter form of "the Eurovision Song Contest". And since the ESC is a proper name, the word contest must remain capitalised.

All the best, EuroSong talk 19:25, 17 April 2010 (UTC)

Volleyball players[edit]

I have seen that you edited some volleyball articles. Some players articles, most of them looks outdated. I would like to improve players by country. Could you please choose a country to contribute with? Please take a look on Yekaterina Gamova, Hélia Souza, Serena Ortolani and Kenia Carcaces for a model to follow. Please can you please improve some volleyball players with infobox and some addons? References are very important. Let me know. Oscar987 22:33, 14 June 2010 (UTC)

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.

AFD[edit]

An article you have edited, Jonathan Stephen is under AFD.I.Casaubon (talk) 00:41, 12 May 2011 (UTC)

I know that I wrote to you about this AFD before. You noted, correctly, that "The subject is difficult to google because the surname is often used as a given name. However, I tried and did not find any third party references to the subject." I googled with keywords like Wales, evangelical and Christian and found some, including 2 recent interviews on BBC-Wales. My particular interest in this page is that i appear to have inadvertantly caused the AFD to happen to this innocent man's page, by disagreeing with an editor on another AFD, who apparently looked at my recent edits and followed me to [Jonathan Stephen]]. Most editors who have looked at this AFD are either regular editors of Christianity-related pages and regular voters to keep such pages on AFDs, or regular voters to delete such pages on AFDs. As you appear to be neither, I thought that you might have a useful opinion to offer.I.Casaubon (talk) 22:57, 24 May 2011 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Anne Schäfer[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Anne Schäfer has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

From my searching, this player has reached no notability requirements. No $35.000 ITF titles in singles or doubles, no main draw appearances in any WTA tournament, no Fed Cup. This is a run of the mill player that wins a round or two of the lowest events possible and picks up a 3 diget check.

While all constructive 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. Fyunck(click) (talk) 19:15, 7 June 2013 (UTC)

Nomination of Anne Schäfer for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Anne Schäfer is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Anne Schäfer until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. Fyunck(click) (talk) 19:34, 7 June 2013 (UTC)
