So much for being unbiased & neutral – show some actual skill rather than power-tripping, kid.[edit]

You deleted my entry on Carson Block & Muddy Waters & for what? It was all neutral, firmly substantiated, and properly sourced. It's people like you that censor inconvenient truth for personal gain & crookedness.

Rondonvolante (talk) 23:25, 22 April 2014 (UTC) RonDonVolante

Neither personal gain nor crookedness, I'm afraid. The article was far from neutral, by the way - to the point that it was unencyclopedic. Daniel (talk) 23:27, 22 April 2014 (UTC)

Hi Dom497, can confirm we have received the email (OTRS #2014042810000351). Your application will be processed in due course. Thanks, Daniel (talk) 00:20, 29 April 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for April 29[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited 4 (number), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Four-character idiom (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.

Edit-warring on Carson Block and Muddy Waters Research.[edit]

Hello. Since you cleaned-up Carson Block and protected it a while ago you might be interested in this report at WP:AN3. Thomas.W talk 09:20, 1 May 2014 (UTC)

Hi Thomas, I actually posted at BLPN requesting a block also, I didn't even think to look at AN3 to check if someone had filed it there. I could technically block per policy as I'm not strictly involved and have the immunity which BLP provides, but I'd prefer someone else to, just to keep it clean. Fingers crossed one of my colleagues sees one of the two reports sometime soon! :) Regards, Daniel (talk) 09:50, 1 May 2014 (UTC)

Alright, hello. Related, why is this clearly photo-shopped picture uploaded by the now banned User:Rondonvolante not deleted on the wikia picture project? Mosfetfaser (talk) 18:30, 1 May 2014 (UTC)

Thanks Mosfetfaser, just saw this now. Will see what I can do. Daniel (talk) 11:59, 8 May 2014 (UTC)
I guess as I blocked, I might as well tidy up this loose end... WJBscribe (talk) 12:07, 8 May 2014 (UTC) just saved me an email I was drafting to yourself! Thanks Will. Hope all is well. Daniel (talk) 12:09, 8 May 2014 (UTC)

AFC gadget error[edit]

FYI, you have importScript('User:Tim_Song/afchelper4.js'); in your monobook.js which pulls in the gadget, hence the error. -- KTC (talk) 15:45, 9 May 2014 (UTC)

Thanks KTC :) Daniel (talk) 03:37, 11 May 2014 (UTC)

Lord Laitinen[edit]

  • I sent you an e-mail regarding the deletion of "Lord Laitinen's Female Relatives, September 2011.jpg", which I had previously not known about. I spoke to these female relatives at a party today, and they both liked the picture, and wanted me to put it back up on my user page. Neither of them requested its deletion, so I wondered why OTRS was involved. Please send me an e-mail reply at, or reply on my talk page. Thanks. Lord Laitinen (talk) 02:10, 26 May 2014 (UTC)

Central Coast Mariners FC nominated for removal of FA status[edit]

I have nominated Central Coast Mariners FC for a featured article review here. Please join the discussion on whether this article meets featured article criteria.

If substantial concerns are not addressed during the review period, the article will be moved to the Featured Article Removal Candidates list for a further period, where editors may declare "Keep" or "Delist" the article's featured status.

Request for comment[edit]

Hello there, a proposal regarding pre-adminship review has been raised at Village pump by Anna Frodesiak. Your comments here is very much appreciated. Many thanks. Jim Carter through MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 06:46, 28 May 2014 (UTC)

Discussion on Jimmy's talk page[edit]

Hi. Jimmy has opened a discussion at User talk:Jimbo Wales/Archive 164#Philosophical discussion of hypothetical BLP situation and some have suggested OTRS could play a role in one or more of the proposals. Would you be interested in commenting? --Anthonyhcole (talk · contribs · email) 08:20, 1 June 2014 (UTC)

Time is very short at the moment so unfortunately I won't be able to personally. I noticed Keegan replied, and you've alerted the rest of the admin team (saving me an email to our mailing list!), so hopefully someone will jump in in due course. Regards, Daniel (talk) 12:15, 2 June 2014 (UTC)

Central Coast Mariners[edit]

Hi Daniel. The lack of a source for the team's players appears to be one of the biggest sticking points remaining. The print sources I've been using have worked wonders for citing most of the article, but they aren't going to do much good for a list of this nature. If the club has a list on their website, that might be the best bet; the A-League might also have one. If it's not too much trouble, would you mind trying to locate a good source for the section? I've been focusing more on improving the larger sections, but failing to address this will cause the FAR to continue. Giants2008 (Talk) 01:46, 12 June 2014 (UTC)

Will do, I'll see what I can hunt down. Thanks again for all your help. Daniel (talk) 09:45, 14 June 2014 (UTC)
No problem. You said that you would format the references after substantial work had been done on the article. I think we're at the point now where this would be a good idea. Giants2008 (Talk) 21:26, 25 June 2014 (UTC)
Indeed it does. I've pencilled it in for a weekend job. Daniel (talk) 21:27, 26 June 2014 (UTC)

Melbourne City Football Club vs Central Coast Mariners FC[edit]

Having just re-read it, I wanted to thank you for your common-sense comment at Wikipedia talk:Naming conventions (Football in Australia). It's clear to me that "Melbourne City Football Club" is preferable over the "FC" abbreviation. I haven't invested in the "Central Coast Mariners FC" naming issue but it does seem that there are scant references to support "Football Club" being part of the "official" name (unless the consensus is to use "Football Club" in all cases regardless of whether the club uses it, but I'm not advocating that position). I do hope common sense prevails and reasoned comments like yours shine through. Thanks! sroc 💬 14:22, 15 July 2014 (UTC)

Hi sroc, thank you for the kind words. Football/soccer is a dispute I refuse to let myself get involved with generally, because I have very strong opinions on the topic and I don't have the time nor emotional energy to fight that fight. However, given this related to CCM I felt the need to pipe up and add my $0.02 on the fullname issue. I'm glad it was appreciated, at least by yourself.
