DJ WARRIOR[edit]

My references are 100% accurate, and this information is freely available if you would utilize a second on Google. You don't make any sense in the real world. Only in Wiki's world homeboy. Take your garbage elsewhere to unofficial places, not something that is 100% accurate, again all this info is available at many many many 3rd party credible sites.

Welcome and congratulations and such[edit]

I'd like to welcome you to Wikipedia and congratulate you, not just for your most excellent user name but also your tenacity in nominating for AfD. It looks like you've done a lot of work there, good job! — Phil Welch 20:54, 16 September 2005 (UTC)

Computer Weekly[edit]

G'day Eddie, just wanted to say you did a good job on cleaning up the Computer Weekly page. Nice work! --fuddlemark (fuddle me!) 14:11, 3 October 2005 (UTC)

Cyberbullying[edit]

  • I have rewritten this article and it is a stub now. The most notable instance of cyberbullying is Eric Harris, one of the perpetrators of the Columbine High School massacre having a web site which threatened violence against various students before the massacre occurred see [1]. There is research which shows that it occurs reasonably frequently although levels of incidence varies according to the research. The talk page for the article shows a suggested plan for expansion for the article. I would be grateful if you could take a look. Capitalistroadster 10:24, 7 October 2005 (UTC)

Domestic virtue[edit]

This article has been expanded considerably. I urge you to take a look at it and reconsider your delete vote. Thanks. Denni 05:01, 14 October 2005 (UTC)

Ron Washington[edit]

Hello Eddie. On Articles for Deletion you said: "...he is mentioned in the forum www.baseball-fever.com but hs is described as mostly a benchwarmer" and "...I submit he is still non-notable as a player and coach" regarding Ron Washington. It has since been discovered during this discussion that Washington was the man who broke Cal Ripken's record streak of consecutive innings played, when he replaced Ripken as a pinch-runner. Would you be willing to reconsider your vote at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Ron Washington? As it now stands, you are the only person left with a vote to delete this article.

AfD for American Smokeless[edit]

Hi there, I have added The Ubie to your nomination as that hash/crack/baccy/whatever pipe that American Smokeless are trying to plug doesn't really warrant an entry either. Pilatus 19:57, 20 November 2005 (UTC)

Gen X[edit]

The joke was spot on! it's just, ... just... *shudder* the sneering git ... you know ... the ... *twitch* the... the hollowed out shell of rock and roll, the ... that "I was a poser before you were a poser" come-follow-me-Ashley-Simpson ... *shudder* .. it just ... the man just saps my will to live ... and he's just be so dismissable, so Teeny Bopper real first album not Jagged Little Pil dismissible, but for that merest sliver of historical credibility of Gen X... just makes you wa... wa... wa... want to rinse the taste out with Mescaleros...

The Heart Throbs/Heartthrobs[edit]

Dude
What's with deleting the disambig and redirects for the above articles? The Brit band can be known by either spelling - which is why I categorised your article as 'The Heart Throbs (WWE)' with appropriate redirects from a disambiguation...now I find you've undone it all...what gives? Eddie.willers 22:55, 3 December 2005 (UTC)

Well first off you cut & pasted the article which is a big NO NO doing this deletes the article history... The Heartthrobs now is disambiguation page the links to the brit rock band while The Heart Throbs is the WWE teams page with your created The Heartthrobs (WWE) redirecting to it... if you will note the names are spelt differently and so the WWE team needs not to be moved to a name which in itself is spelt wrong as Heart Throps is two words not one --- Paulley 12:35, 5 December 2005 (UTC)

Deleting Articles[edit]

I think that deleting pages on Wikipedia has become a sport. The people who do it are often snide and arrogant, and they get joy out of killing off pages with very little effort. I feel that deleting a page should be hard work. You shouldn't get a free pass with a couple of tossed off words. In fact, it should be difficult as hell to delete an article and take weeks, if not months. george 18:16, 15 December 2005 (UTC)

You know what, you're right! I'm gonna let it go. george 18:34, 15 December 2005 (UTC)

Hi (Re: Hi From A Jaibo)[edit]

Hey Eddie, Yeah, my dad works here at a petrochemical plant in Altamira. I've been living here for 7 years. I like it here, but things are somewhat disorganized. The nice thing is that it's a lot more laid back here compared to the U.S. We're gonna stay one more year and then we'll move somewhere else. I don't know where we'll move though, but wherever's fine with me. Don't worry, you'll get used to living here sometime, its really fun in Tampico.Will G. 12:35, 9 May 2006 (UTC)

Chuck Cunningham syndrome[edit]

Hi... based on your AfD comments on "Reverse Cunningham", I was wondering if you'd care to take a look at this one? These made-up TV-fan "syndromes" are getting out of hand. Thanks... wikipediatrix 20:38, 26 July 2006 (UTC)

Cheers! Geo Swan 13:37, 2 June 2007 (UTC)

Greetings[edit]

Greetings,

As I said on my talk page, if you too have been on the receiving end of thoughtlessness, or worse, in the {{afd}} fora, then we have something in common.

My offer was sincere. Any time you feel, you, or articles to which you contribute, are on the receiving end of thoughtlessness, or worse, in the {{afd}} fora, feel free to give me a heads-up. I feel very strongly that civility should be restored to those fora.

I think our interaction on Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Walid Said Bin Said Zaid has been our first. I don't like the idea of starting on the wrong foot.

My offers are sincere, and I hope that if we cross paths again we can do so in a collegial manner.

Cheers! Geo Swan 14:37, 3 June 2007 (UTC)

Aric Gilinsky[edit]

Actually if you read it it says he refused the Newsnight interview. It is also possible to be part of extreme religious groups without religion - look at Ulster.

Radio Source[edit]

Wow, that is one tiny tiny source. I didn't even see it there.--Torchwood Who? (talk) 03:56, 23 March 2008 (UTC)

I'm not disputing it, but I think someone might want to change the template so the source is better positioned.--Torchwood Who? (talk) 03:59, 23 March 2008 (UTC)

Source for value ranges in "Mullard-Philips tube designation"[edit]

Hi Eddie.willers, I saw your edits on Mullard-Philips tube designation. Can you help to solve the mystery of this? Do you know a source to check? --BEG (talk) 09:21, 7 November 2008 (UTC)

Unreferenced BLPs[edit]

Information.svg Hello Eddie.willers! Thank you for your contributions. I am a bot alerting you that 1 of the articles that you created is an Unreferenced Biography of a Living Person. Please note that all biographies of living persons must be sourced. If you were to add reliable, secondary sources to this article, it would greatly help us with the current 2,531 article backlog. Once the article is adequately referenced, please remove the {{unreferencedBLP}} tag. Here is the list:

  1. Tim Lott - Find sources: "Tim Lott" – news · newspapers · books · scholar · JSTOR · free images · wikipedia library

Speedy deletion nomination of Limey & The Yanks[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

You may also wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles. See the Article Wizard.

Thank you.

A tag has been placed on Limey & The Yanks requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article, which appears to be about a real person, individual animal(s), an organization (band, club, company, etc.), or web content, does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not indicate the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable. If this is the first page that you have created, then you should read the guide to writing your first article.

If you think that you can assert the notability of the subject, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the article (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the article's talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would confirm the subject's notability under Wikipedia guidelines.

For guidelines on specific types of articles, you may want to check out our criteria for biographies, for web sites, for bands, or for companies. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. Woogee (talk) 20:38, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Thank you for not only re-visiting your opinion but also for changing your mind in relation to the deletion of the Silvertone Records (Selfridges) article. It is refreshing to run across intellectually honest editors who are willing to change their mind in light of changed circumstances.smjwalsh (talk) 07:34, 13 July 2010 (UTC)

David Kershenbaum[edit]

  • Thanks for the supportive response to the latest complaint by User:Natkersh. Can we take this to arbitration, do you think? Eddie.willers (talk) 12:55, 28 July 2010 (UTC)


Whatever you think. I'm not familiar with the mechanics of arbitration or page protection. I'm a patient person. Vytal (talk) 16:16, 28 July 2010 (UTC)


User: Eddie.Willers[edit]

Please stop this edit-war, it seems like you have a strong desire to keep changing this page, assuring us that you are improving the page, however, in fact, making it look unprofessional. From simple spelling mistakes and etc, to the style of your writing... is not an "edit" like. Professional "editors" would not present the information the way you are trying to. I strongly suspect a personal conflict of interest from your side, assuming that you know the target of your attacks personally and that forces you to keep coming back to the page over and over and making that page look unprofessional through your continuous non-stop reversions. It is called an edit-war and it is not acceptable. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Natkersh (talkcontribs) 06:26, 29 July 2010 (UTC)

File source and copyright licensing problem with File:JibberJabber.jpg[edit]

File Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading File:JibberJabber.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, their copyright should also be acknowledged.

As well as adding the source, we also need to know the terms of the license that the copyright holder has published the file under, usually done by adding a licensing tag. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Unsourced and untagged files may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the file will be deleted 48 hours after 02:10, 30 July 2010 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. mono 02:10, 30 July 2010 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Software archaeology[edit]

I thought I'd leave a note regarding the current state of the article. As the subject of a 2001 professional workshop, it probably is not WP:CB, although I can see how the original article might have make you think that. -- Radagast3 (talk) 23:47, 13 August 2010 (UTC)

Nomination of Arteli for deletion[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A discussion has begun about whether the article Arteli, which you created or to which you contributed, should be deleted. While contributions are welcome, an article may be deleted if it is inconsistent with Wikipedia policies and guidelines for inclusion, explained in the deletion policy.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Arteli until a consensus is reached, and you are welcome to contribute to the discussion.

You may edit the article during the discussion, including to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion template from the top of the article. Novaseminary (talk) 14:17, 29 September 2010 (UTC)

Photo requests[edit]

Hello Eddie Willers,

Do you do photo requests? I am trying to get someone to photograph the Tampico México Temple located here. Would you be willing to do that?--ARTEST4ECHO (talk/contribs) 17:25, 8 March 2011 (UTC)

License tagging for File:Coleman 220F Lantern.JPG[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Coleman 220F Lantern.JPG. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information; to add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click the "Edit" tab at the top of the page and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia.

For help in choosing the correct tag, or for any other questions, leave a message on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 23:05, 27 August 2012 (UTC)

We noticed though that when you edited Mull of Kintyre (song), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page The Optimists (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

Thank You for the Wikipedia Picture[edit]

Hello, My name is Duane Hurst and I recently made a free (non-commercial) English web site to share information with people. I added links to your Wikipedia/Wikimedia freeware picture. I also gave credit to you on my web pages for your work. Thank you for sharing with the public. My website is:

http://www.freeenglishsite.com/

I add pictures such as yours to one of the following major sections of my site: 1. World section - contains information and over 10,000 images of every world country and territory. Link at: http://www.freeenglishsite.com/world/index.htm

2. USA section - contains information and images of every USA state and territory. Link at: http://www.freeenglishsite.com/world/usa/index.htm

3. English section - "Mel and Wes" lessons in conversation format. Stories are located in various USA states and world countries such as China, England, Germany, Japan, Mexico and Thailand. Each lesson has many slang terms and idioms, which I link to my Slang Dictionary. This eventually will have over 5,000 terms. Currently, it has about 3,000 slang and idioms. I regularly add new lessons and slang terms. Link at: http://www.freeenglishsite.com/english/lessons/index.htm Slang Dictionary link at: http://www.freeenglishsite.com/english/slang/Eslang_a.htm

Prior to retirement, I taught English at several private and public universities in the United States.

Please share this free site with your friends. I hope all will enjoy the pictures and find the English information useful. Sincerely,  Duane Hurst in Utah, USA

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.
