Is this a duck?[edit]

How can anyone (even people who agree with him/her) look at this contribution history and blame anyone for hearing the quack of a previous user? S/he has barely edited the mainspace at all, and somehow discovered Jimbo's talkpage, which isn't even one of the official drama boards--though it certainly serves as one? I'm sorry, I don't buy it. And I think if an "editor" (I use that word very loosely for one with that contribution history) had landed on Eric's side of the divide, the same people giving kudos for what a bright new "editor" s/he is, would be at SPI demanding to know who s/he really was.

Yeah I know, annoying. But he's not the only one...♦ Dr. Blofeld 08:10, 20 October 2014 (UTC)

  • If I had even an inkling of who it might be, I'd start an SPI in a heartbeat--even though I have no clue how that process really works. We don't need anymore sub-10% mainspace editors--they're already taking over the project as it is. LHMask me a question 15:32, 20 October 2014 (UTC)

The George[edit]

Hi Dr B – sorry, as usual I have been distracted by other articles and stuff (also been away for a bit). I've had another look through The George Hotel, Crawley and I think we can go for FAC now; I can't see any obvious changes or additions to make at this time, certainly not from the sources I have. I will be away with limited/no access to WP from Wednesday until Tuesday 28th, but am around regularly after that, so I can keep an eye on progress and act promptly on any comments etc. Cheers, Hassocks5489 (Floreat Hova!) 13:05, 20 October 2014 (UTC)

@Hassocks5489: OK, we'll nom it then when you return.♦ Dr. Blofeld 14:31, 20 October 2014 (UTC)

Clarification[edit]

So do you want me to stay off of Jimbo's talk page?Amanda Smalls 14:58, 20 October 2014 (UTC)

Entirely up to you, but if you're looking for friendly conversation and a place to hang out it's almost as bad as hanging out at WP:ANI. Most of his talk page tends to be negative and pointless nonsense, and he barely responds to things most of the time anyway. I'd find somewhere more upbeat like Wikipedia:WikiProject Women writers or something...♦ Dr. Blofeld 15:07, 20 October 2014 (UTC)

I've noticed. Do you think that I'm too young to be of value to Wikipedia?Amanda Smalls 15:12, 20 October 2014 (UTC)
No, you've got the potential to do a lot more in terms of content than Jimbo has ever done. Nature articles need a lot of work, a subject which seems to interest you.♦ Dr. Blofeld 15:14, 20 October 2014 (UTC)
Nature articles have a lot of sources and there's millions of species that need articles. Plus I love nature. Sometimes, I'll spend hours just walking through the woods, enjoying the natural beauty of it. I'm not one of those Die Hard go green people though. You know what I mean?Amanda Smalls 15:18, 20 October 2014 (UTC)
I didn't think you were David Bellamy's granddaughter or anything :-)♦ Dr. Blofeld 15:34, 20 October 2014 (UTC)
Do you want to work on an article with me?Amanda Smalls 15:37, 20 October 2014 (UTC)

I'm not editing at the moment!♦ Dr. Blofeld 16:26, 20 October 2014 (UTC)

Help on Loboc Church[edit]

Hi Dr. Blofeld! Hope you could do some CE on the article. Thanks.--Carlojoseph14 (talk) 18:30, 21 October 2014 (UTC)

Nice job! Sure, I'll look at it later on this evening.♦ Dr. Blofeld 18:31, 21 October 2014 (UTC)

Thanks Dr. Blofeld. I have been into edit wars because of the issues an IP user insists, though another editor have copyedited it. That's why it has been page protected. --Carlojoseph14 (talk) 18:36, 21 October 2014 (UTC)

Even churches in the Philippines are subject to edit wars?? What hope is there on here!!♦ Dr. Blofeld 18:45, 21 October 2014 (UTC)

Actually, this was the first time. The edit war issue is mainly on capitalization. This was supposedly resolved when another editor does CE. However, the IP since he cannot edit anymore after page protection, logged in and manually revert the edits. He insists that it must be Loboc church not Loboc Church (which lead to some red links and no category in commons). It was a proper noun in that case, and all PHL article on churches uses a capital C after the town's or location's name just like Maribojoc Church. --Carlojoseph14 (talk) 18:51, 21 October 2014 (UTC)

It generally looks OK, you might want to link or explain what a retablo is though!♦ Dr. Blofeld 19:04, 21 October 2014 (UTC)

Thanks. I'll look for a reference on retablos (or church altars). Linked it to reredos or retable--Carlojoseph14 (talk) 02:57, 22 October 2014 (UTC)
