P.S. One last helpful hint. To sign your posts like I did above (on talk pages, for example) use the '~' symbol. To insert just your name, type ~~~ (3 tildes), or, to insert your name and timestamp, use ~~~~ (4 tildes).

Gerlach[edit]

dbaron - you might want to check on the Jim Gerlach page; an anon user keeps trying to remove info on DeLay (though they seem to have stopped adding endorsements cut-and-pasted from Gerlach's campaign page. I hope you're following the campaign... jesup 04:17, 13 October 2006 (UTC)

6th District[edit]

Thanks! Useful edit. I've been calling for Lois, and the robocalls pissed some voters off so much they're ready the take the head off anyone (live) who calls. jesup 01:39, 7 November 2006 (UTC)

A {{prod}} template has been added to the article Neil Deakin, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice explains why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may contest the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page. Also, please consider improving the article to address the issues raised.

To Dbaron, for your work on Firefox, my new Web browser since a few years ago when Mac IE became unsupported. Thank you from a user. -Susanlesch (talk) 16:17, 15 December 2007 (UTC)
  • Little to do with Wikipedia except that I couldn't read much of it very fast without a browser. Best wishes. -Susanlesch (talk) 16:17, 15 December 2007 (UTC)

Unnecessary?[edit]

Hello. Here you fixed links to redirects. That's usually considered unnecessary editing, because it doesn't change the physical effect of clicking the link, you get to the same place. (Different from links to disambs.) Or do you plan do remove that redirect altogether? (If so, why?) Best regards, --Thogo (Talk) 23:48, 10 January 2010 (UTC)

Hmmm. I suppose so, but the "(Redirected from TransLink (San Francisco))" message near the top has always seemed to me like a "you linked to the wrong place; shouldn't have done that" sort of message, and also a bunch of wasted vertical space that's better not to unnecessarily inflict on readers. -David Baron (talk) 00:09, 13 January 2010 (UTC)
Hm, ok... I never felt like that when I saw that message since I usually just don't notice that it is there, it's so small... ;) --Thogo (Talk) 15:06, 13 January 2010 (UTC)

Linking[edit]

Hi, I noticed a few years you linked. Please note that time units are not generally linked on the English Wikipedia. Thanks for your work. Tony (talk) 09:26, 24 March 2012 (UTC)
