Salut Deans ![edit]

ça a marché ! Mais bon va falloir que je travaille mon anglais ! Je viens te demander un truc sais-tu ou se trouve la page avec les boites de Babel ici ! D'autre part je vis à fr:Coulommiers (Seine-et-Marne), pourrais tu me bricoler une boite avec juste le nom de Coulommiers, c'est la patrie du bon vin et du fromage de Coulommiers (il y a une Foire au Fromage et aux vins internationale), sinon comme j'ai vécu à paris (que je connais comme ma poche), j'ai mis Paris, mais ce n'est pas la réalité, j'aimerais vraiment indiquer cette petite ville de Coulommiers. Bon, merci encore pour la page Compte Unifié c'est cool! Super bonne journée -Mikeread (talk) 09:03, 13 January 2011 (UTC)

Notification: changes to "Mark my edits as minor by default" preference[edit]

Hello there. This is an automated message to tell you about the gradual phasing out of the preference entitled "Mark all edits minor by default", which you currently have (or very recently had) enabled.

On 13 March 2011, this preference was hidden from the user preferences screen as part of efforts to prevent its accidental misuse (consensus discussion). This had the effect of locking users in to their existing preference, which, in your case, was true. To complete the process, your preference will automatically be changed to false in the next few days. This does not require any intervention on your part and you will still be able to manually mark your edits as being minor in the usual way.

For established users such as yourself there is a workaround available involving custom JavaScript. With the script in place, you can continue with this functionality indefinitely (its use is governed by WP:MINOR). If you have any problems, feel free to drop me a note.

Thank you for your understanding and happy editing :) Editing on behalf of User:Jarry1250, LivingBot (talk) 18:44, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

Message regarding the Skin (Rihanna song) deletion debate[edit]

Hello. This is a generic message that I am sending to all of the Wikipedia contributors who have aired their views on this deletion debate. Since you last contributed your perspective, the article has been significantly expanded. You may wish to change, alter or expand your argument in light of these developments at the discussion page. Thanks. SplashScreen (talk) 21:17, 27 October 2011 (UTC)

Deprod of List of movie theatres in Latur[edit]

Hello! Your reply awaited on the article's talk page. -Animeshkulkarni (talk) 08:10, 27 February 2012 (UTC)

Trust[edit]

I was going to post to your page too! I started it yesterday off-line. What a coincidence. The citations you had in the article helped: I was going to state they began as a group in 2011. I forgot that I heard "Candy Walls" on the radio. Deletionists! Don't get me started! Your English seems fine. It's a lot better than my French. I'll confess a small giggle at the et instead of and. You included five citations so it would not qualify for Speedy deletion. The protection I try to use is to add the article to the Canada music project. There's more to add to the article; later. Argolin (talk) 08:00, 9 March 2012 (UTC)

Vandalism[edit]

Regarding this edit summary: in contrast to you, I gave an extensive policy-based justification for my edit in the edit summary. Perhaps you don't agree with it, that doesn't make it vandalism. --Randykitty (talk) 20:55, 14 December 2012 (UTC)

An attempt to delete the article, followed by an edit-war on the French version of the article when I tried to insert some sources, followed by a syntax error insert in the article, are clearly vandalism. And now you start to attack me because I simply revert one of your mistake. Sorry but I don't have time for your obsessions. --DeansFA (talk) 21:53, 14 December 2012 (UTC)

Nomination of Urchin Software Corporation for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Urchin Software Corporation 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/Urchin Software Corporation 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. Toddst1 (talk) 22:52, 17 June 2013 (UTC)

June 2013[edit]

Information icon Please do not add or change content, as you did to Urchin Software Corporation, without verifying it by citing a reliable source. Please review the guidelines at Wikipedia:Citing sources and take this opportunity to add references to the article. Thank you. Toddst1 (talk) 23:23, 17 June 2013 (UTC)

I do my best! Thanks. --DeansFA (talk) 23:38, 17 June 2013 (UTC)

Moved to talk[edit]

I've moved your VOA comments to Wikipedia talk:Articles for deletion/Urchin Software Corporation as they were not related to the AFD discussion. The question is probably more appropriate for User_talk:Tyros1972, but I'll leave that to you.

I agree with you that that was an unfair characterization of your actions. However, it was that AIV report that I followed to Angelfish and Urchin. Toddst1 (talk) 20:46, 18 June 2013 (UTC)

I don't think moving it back was at all constructive. Toddst1 (talk) 20:50, 18 June 2013 (UTC)

Please stop. Continuing to remove maintenance templates from pages on Wikipedia, as you did to Urchin Software Corporation, without resolving the problem that the template refers to, may be considered disruptive editing. Further edits of this type may result in your account being blocked from editing. Toddst1 (talk) 20:53, 18 June 2013 (UTC)

I don't know what AIV means but I am speaking in the message you removed about my experience related to the notability of the subject. As you can see, he tried to make me blocked after having voted. I find extremely mean from him and now you to constantly trying to accusing me of having a link with this company (I started to clean the stuff, adding some sources, so why do you include the COI template??). The guy is blocked and I started to clean his stuff!! --DeansFA (talk) 21:02, 18 June 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for July 26[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Pierre Lescure, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page French (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.

Venues of the 2015 Pan American and Parapan American Games[edit]

Thank you for your edit to this article. My edit summary stated: "unexplained content removal". Even a brief edit summary like "these wikilinks are not related to this article" helps avoid misunderstanding. Thanks! Magnolia677 (talk) 23:17, 10 March 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for April 4[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Carson Park (baseball stadium), you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Northern League (baseball) and Henry Aaron (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

Rafael Montero[edit]

We wait until he actually starts the game before adding it to the infobox and adding the category, otherwise crystal ball is being violated. Not sure what is so hard to understand about that...--Yankees10 06:09, 13 May 2014 (UTC)

crystal ball is being violated? I like your humour. --Deansfa (talk) 03:52, 15 May 2014 (UTC)

May 2014[edit]

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on 2014 FIFA World Cup Group G. Users are expected to collaborate with others, to avoid editing disruptively, and to try to reach a consensus rather than repeatedly undoing other users' edits once it is known that there is a disagreement.

Please be particularly aware, Wikipedia's policy on edit warring states:

  1. Edit warring is disruptive regardless of how many reverts you have made; that is to say, editors are not automatically "entitled" to three reverts.
  2. Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.

If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If you engage in an edit war, you may be blocked from editing.
The consensus is no listing. It's time to start talking, somewhere other than in the edit summaries. Walter Görlitz (talk) 17:35, 30 May 2014 (UTC)

Also, WP:NPA states that you should discuss the content and not the contributors. Don't talk about me and what you preconceive to be a POV. It's rude and misguided. Walter Görlitz (talk) 17:38, 30 May 2014 (UTC)
POV = Point of View. What's wrong with having a point of view, and what's wrong with using abbreviations instead of words and expressions? It's what you're doing in all of your messages! BTW (hope this abbreviation won't be used against me), You did start the edit war without knowing what I was planning to do. Sorry but speaking about the context, the reaction and the history of this group, when it is referenced with newspapers and media as USA Today or HuffPo, is absolutely the goal of Wikipedia. In the page you mentioned in your reverts, some people said:
  • Whether a group can be considered a group of death or not, this should probably not be included in the main page, since it is already long enough and should include more important matters. I have created the group subpages: A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, and information about each group should go to those subpages. Ciao.
  • It's widely accepted that Group G is the "Group of Death." Every year one group is decided to be the strongest one and given this title, I definitely agree that this should be mentioned. Here are some sources that state this claim! [1] [2] [3] [4]. Adamh4 (talk) 20:02, 27 March 2014 (UTC)
I'm not here to disorganize. I'm here to contribute, improve, add interesting and referenced content to some article I'm interested in. That's it. --Deansfa (talk) 18:17, 30 May 2014 (UTC)

MOSNUM[edit]

[1] "7" should be "seven" per WP:MOSNUM and you still have not discussed the addition. See WP:BRD. Walter Görlitz (talk) 17:46, 30 May 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for the help. I updated the article with your suggestion. --Deansfa (talk) 17:52, 30 May 2014 (UTC)
