- 15 Non-Admin Closures
You just beat me to the closing, I almost EC'd you :) BTW, when you close Afds you should generally note that it is a non-admin closure. I used to just write "The result was Keep. (WP:NAC)" or something. Thanks, Mark Arsten (talk) 01:02, 28 October 2013 (UTC)
Please remove our permission to edit the Wikipedia pages. We are a school and it appears that students have been vandalizing your work. The leadership here recognizes the significant effort it takes to keep Wikipedia useful for everyone and would like to apologize for the inconveniences certain students have caused.
- Regretfully, as I am not an administrator, I cannot fulfill your request. You are welcome to file a report at WP:AN about this issue. DavidLeighEllis (talk) 18:17, 5 November 2013 (UTC)
Hello! There is a DR/N request you may have interest in.
This message is being sent to let you know of a discussion at the Wikipedia:Dispute resolution noticeboard regarding a content dispute discussion you may have participated in. Content disputes can hold up article development and make editing difficult for editors. You are not required to participate, but you are both invited and encouraged to help find a resolution. The thread is "Wikipedia:Template messages/User talk namespace". Please join us to help form a consensus. Thank you! EarwigBot operator / talk 19:11, 9 November 2013 (UTC)
Hi there. Thanks for contributing to the project by closing those NAC AfD. You should however be aware of that discussion should be open for seven days before they are eligible to be closed. When you closed Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of English football transfers 2009–10 it had only been open for a little more than six days. But the result of the discussion was a clear keep, so I doubt there will be any problems with that closure. Cheers, Mentoz86 (talk) 16:35, 10 November 2013 (UTC)
Level 2 icon
I hope I am not bothering you but I wanted to have a chat about edit 578024244 in Template:Uw-error2 and similar templates. Every time I saw the orange icon, it struck me as how odd it is and how I do not associate any meaning with it. I was looking around and decided that the meaning of a level 2 warning is better associated with or or .
What do you say?
- To me, the orange exclamation mark triangles seem too similar to the level 3 warning icon. You're welcome to propose this on Wikipedia talk:Template messages/User talk namespace, however. DavidLeighEllis (talk) 15:54, 11 November 2013 (UTC)
- Hi. Mind if I ask a clarifying question? Does "similar" means good similar (as in "it's similar, I like it, let's pick that one") or bad similar (as in "It is almost indistinguishable from the red one; let's not pick it")? If latter is the case, what about the other two?
- Oh, and can I ask where you discussed the previous change?
- Best regards,
- Codename Lisa (talk) 10:44, 12 November 2013 (UTC)
- All three of your proposed icons have an excessive similarity to the level 3 warning icon, IMHO. The only discussion of my change to the level 2 warning icons is at User:DavidLeighEllis/TalkPageArchiveThree#User_warning_templates. Nonetheless, I believe that the general lack of objection to a change on many high-profile templates indicates a consensus for it. DavidLeighEllis (talk) 16:22, 12 November 2013 (UTC)
Warning on a User
I recently Water supply and sanitation in Yemen. I am just wondering why you wrote a warning for the user as shown here when I reverted their edit. Shouldn't I warn the user because I was the one who reverted the edit? I'm not sure on this, just asking. I'm a little new to Wikipedia.by a user that vandalized the Wikipedia Article
- You are correct; I get a bit overenthusiastic sometimes. DavidLeighEllis (talk) 19:03, 11 November 2013 (UTC)
- We apparently need a link between the displayed icon on the warning templates and its corresponding image page so the copyright info on the image page is readily accessible. DavidLeighEllis (talk) 21:36, 14 November 2013 (UTC)
Hey, could you do me a favor...
...and not do that "torches and pitchforks support" thing any more? I know you mean it jokingly/ironically/whatever, but it's far too easily misunderstood, and torches and pitchforks are too real (well, metaphorically real) for it to be very funny. Just a thought.

What is improper about citing Official Statements?
Is it improper they way they are being cited? I'm just confused since the notice does actually mention and link to the wiki article in question (Streisand Effect). I just don't understand why it keeps being changed.. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 22:58, 21 November 2013 (UTC)
- Primary sources, such as your link to the Reddit page, are disfavored for use in Wikipedia articles. In this case, use of material apparently covered only by the primary source violates the "undue weight" provision of the neutral point of view policy. DavidLeighEllis (talk) 23:24, 21 November 2013 (UTC)
- Common sense: the preferred phrase in the article should be consistent with its title. For example, in Kerosene, we should not have ten usages of "paraffin", even though this is a common term for the fuel in certain parts of the world. DavidLeighEllis (talk) 21:22, 24 November 2013 (UTC)
- Um, It's okay to describe the word in the first paragraph. You still have not provided a policy. Common sense would say otherwise -- "Millennial generation" describes the group. But you're late to this discussion. Read the talk page notes.
As you can see on that IP's talk page, he is a major nuisance with regard to the Eye color article and its talk page and has noted hatred for me; apparently thinks (or thought) that I'm Asian as well. Flyer22 (talk) 01:35, 26 November 2013 (UTC)
Why Wikipedia isn't credible.
The movie "Matrix" was a stolen film that was held up in a federal court. Facts are fact. They, the Wachowski brothers did not create this movie. People should know the truth and/or high light how they went through a legal situation due to the true source of the movie. I am not the only one who thinks some of the information is distorted. This is not just about the movie but even with some other topics like history and etc. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 19:03, 30 November 2013 (UTC)
- Do you have a reliable source which supports your claims concerning the provenance of the film? DavidLeighEllis (talk) 19:06, 30 November 2013 (UTC)

This IP address is connected to a school and thus immature children are likely - as they have evidently already done - to vandalize pages. I ask you since you have reverted some of the fraudulent pages.
If there is some way of adding IP's voluntarily by users to an editing blacklist, I'd very much appreciate if you linked me to such a page. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 14:59, 2 December 2013 (UTC)
