Barnstar[edit]

Working Man's Barnstar.png The Working Man's Barnstar
For tirelessly correcting incompatible dates of birth, I award thee the Working Man's Barnstar. It's tedious work but it needs to be done and you're doing an awesome job. Graymornings(talk) 09:29, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

Joseph S. Iseman[edit]

Hello, you put in the date of birth for Joseph S. Iseman, which is an entry on my watchlist. The lack of same must have escaped me, but glad it's there now. I have also corrected the date of his death. In any case, thank you. Regards, MarmadukePercy (talk) 04:34, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

22d SOPS[edit]

I'm going to change back the edit to make 22d SOPS to 22nd SOPS; I'm sure the edit was good intentioned, but the Air Force (while not always consistent) tries to stick with 2d or 3d with its unit designations. 22d Space Operations Squadron.png

Ok, we'll play this way - I will contact the Air Force Historical Research Agency, order a copy (thru FOIA) of the 22 SOPS lineage and honors history, and use that as the reference of 22d instead of 22nd. From personal experience, usually the unit's lowest ranking person helps write the fact sheet - I wouldn't expect them to actually have read the AF regs on historical designations or have contacted the AFHRA for information. Change it back if you must, but be prepared for an edit when the info comes in. TDRSS (talk) 10:20, 16 July 2009 (UTC)
It may be a bit late, but I will apologize for my tone. As I'm sure you picked up this particular topic is a sensitive area and has been fought with countless folks who keep up with unit histories and lineages. I have argued with the 18-year old Senior Airman who "thinks" he knows how his unit should be identified, and the old WWII bomber pilot who claims to remember differently. On most, if not all, of the pages I edit, I give a good "authoritative" reference - this is one area that is lacking. But due to my argumentative tone, and your warranted response, I guess I will have to find the authoritative source to reference. Again, I am sorry for my tone and reply. TDRSS (talk) 16:05, 16 July 2009 (UTC)
Better late then never - This link is to the AF Historical Research Agency's heraldry introduction. If you scroll down the page, under Figure 12, the paragraph describes the number "endings" authorized (i.e. "th", "st", and "d"). Again, sorry for the misunderstanding and negative tone.

Wikipedia:Pending changes/Straw poll on interim usage[edit]

Hi. As you recently commented in the straw poll regarding the ongoing usage and trial of Pending changes, this is to notify you that there is an interim straw poll with regard to keeping the tool switched on or switching it off while improvements are worked on and due for release on November 9, 2010. This new poll is only in regard to this issue and sets no precedent for any future usage. Your input on this issue is greatly appreciated. Off2riorob (talk) 23:31, 20 September 2010 (UTC)

Renaldas Seibutis[edit]

Hello, first sorry for my bad english. You have change the date of birth of this play ( 23 july 1985 to 25 décember 1985 ). According some sources ([1] et [2], [3] et [4] ) even if the nba give second ([5]), it seems 23 july 1985 is the correct date.

Disambiguation link notification for August 25[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited Fairmilehead, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Ian Murray (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). 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.

Ron Ball and compulsory retirement[edit]

You may have a point actually. I know we talk about people taking compulsory retirement, but I suppose to take something does suggest there's a choice in the matter, which he clearly wouldn't have had in that situation. Paul MacDermott (talk) 22:16, 11 December 2012 (UTC)

No worries. Paul MacDermott (talk) 11:28, 12 December 2012 (UTC)

Sorry![edit]

Hi. I'm afraid that I thoughtlessly struck through a few words in your recent Reference Desk answer on Referendum Costs. I didn't know the convention that contributors leave other contributors' comments untouched, but have now been schooled in this matter by one of our colleagues. My apologies for my mistake. RomanSpa (talk) 19:59, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

Not a problem. Dalliance (talk) 21:53, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
