Your change to Easter[edit]

I undid your changes to the Easter article, because there aren't "35 dates" on which Easter can fall. It can only fall on a Sunday, and even when you consider all of both March and April, there just aren't 35 possible Sundays. :) Regards, Kimchi.sg 12:29, 12 June 2006 (UTC)

  • To be fair to this (new at the time) editor, there are 35 dates on which Easter can fall, if you refer only to calendar dates i.e. March 24, April 7, etc., as was implicit from this editor's version. However, your edit re-stated the point much more clearly, so no need to revise further. Just wanting to be fair to a new editor. Agent 86 01:14, 27 July 2006 (UTC)

E.F. Schumacher Society[edit]

Please be aware that I have added the {{notability}} template to E.F. Schumacher Society, an article you created. You may wish to revise the article so that the facts set forth in the article make it apparent that this is a notable organization. The appropriate guidelines can be found by following the links in your welcome message. You may also wish to read What Wikipedia is not. Agent 86 18:01, 28 July 2006 (UTC)

Computus[edit]

You recently changed the Epact table in the Computus table. Unfortunately collections of numbers like this are vulnerable to uninformed or malicious edits, so it would be very helpful if you could provide a citation right at the head or foot of the table explaining where this material can be verified, so that the correctness of your edit can be verified and preserved. --Gerry Ashton 21:11, 4 October 2006 (UTC)

Ted Bundy[edit]

Thanks for your recent additions to Ted Bundy. Please take the time to find and add reliable sources to document the factual accuracy of what you added. It looks right to me, but an anything like this it's always a good idea to refer people to a specific book that makes the claim. DreamGuy 20:34, 19 July 2007 (UTC)

km to mile conversion for Good Friday Earthquake[edit]

Hi. Thanks for your contribution to the Good Friday Earthquake article. Unfortunately it appears your conversion of kilometers to miles was performed backwards. I've corrected values, but wanted to give you a heads-up for your future conversions. --Dan East 02:54, 4 August 2007 (UTC)

Lucretius[edit]

Hi Emeraldcityserendipity, I am not entirely happy with your minor edit to Lucretius. I don't think you can say that a 'notice states'. Faute de mieux, I will therefore return to the original wording. Best regards, --Fabullus 09:44, 26 August 2007 (UTC)

List of countries by homicide rate.[edit]

Do you have a better reference than the existnig one for your change? If so, please cite it, and don't leave contradicting cites when changing info. -- Jeandré, 2007-12-09t20:24z

Your change to Trader Joe's[edit]

There is no Trader Joe's in New Hampshire. If you think there is one, please provide citation. WLee (talk) 03:44, 15 December 2007 (UTC)


Your edit summary usage[edit]

Information icon.svg

Hi there. When editing an article on Wikipedia there is a small field labeled "Edit summary" under the main edit-box. It looks like this:
Edit summary text box

The text written here will appear on the Recent changes page, in the page revision history, on the diff page, and in the watchlists of users who are watching that article. See m:Help:Edit summary for full information on this feature.

Filling in the edit summary field greatly helps your fellow contributors in understanding what you changed, so please always fill in the edit summary field. If you are adding a section, please do not just keep the previous section's header in the Edit summary field - please fill in your new section's name instead. Thank you. Ohmpandya (Talk) 22:30, 9 January 2008 (UTC)

wiki links[edit]

Hey, thanks for your contribs to Green Tortoise. I noticed that you added wikilinks to terms such as Wednesday and Thursday in the article.. ( diff ). While adding wikilinks can be helpful, in this case it is not considered appropriate. You can read more at [[1]] , which states, Make links only where they are relevant to the context: It is not useful and can be very distracting to mark all possible words as hyperlinks.

Thanks for you contribs though, and stick around!.. Feel free to drop any questions my way! here 23:03, 22 January 2008 (UTC)

Craigslist[edit]

I reverted your change to Craigslist because it wikified years. Please refer to WP:MOSDATE. The other changes seem fine, please do them again. —EncMstr 20:46, 22 February 2008 (UTC)

February 2008[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg Please stop. If you continue to vandalize Wikipedia, as you did to San Francisco, California, you will be blocked from editing. Loonymonkey (talk) 00:56, 27 February 2008 (UTC)

Date[edit]

Why are you going to pages and wikifying year dates? It is a very strange thing to do.Elan26 (talk) 13:18, 15 September 2008 (UTC)Elan26

Pike Place Market: Rachel the pig[edit]

Please see Talk:Pike Place Market#Official mascot? (and, please, any response should go there, not here, because I won't be watching here). Your edit in July 2007 claimed that Rachel is the Market's "official" mascot. You didn't cite anything Do you have a basis for that? Was Rachel's status made official some time shortly before that? Because Pike Place Market News, March 2006, p. 12 overtly says "Rachel is not the official symbol for the Pike Place Market—or the Market Foundation." - Jmabel | Talk 06:08, 16 October 2008 (UTC)

Edit summaries[edit]

Information.svg Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. Please don't forget to provide an edit summary, as you forgot on your recent edit to Derrick Jensen. Thank you. Chicken Wing (talk) 01:23, 19 November 2008 (UTC)

Date formats[edit]

I'm curious about your recent edits to Leonhard Euler. I could be wrong (it's pretty confusing, really), but my understanding of the section on dates in WP:MOS is that Gregorian and Julian dates should be clarified as much as possible, not blurred together, as your edit appears (to me) to do. My favorite example of a really good use of this style is the lifespan dates at Isaac Newton (including the footnote that's linked to the dates), if you'd like to have a look. I don't want to do anything to the Euler article without checking with you first because this is a weak area for me and I want to be sure that I'm not wrong. I'll appreciate anything you can tell me. Thanks! -- edi(talk) 15:37, 11 February 2009 (UTC)

Your recent edits to Landover Baptist Church[edit]

I have reverted your edits because there is no evidence that this site has Phelps and his cult particularly in mind; Landover in fact began before Phelps was famous outside his own area. The roots of the site are far more likely to be found in Chris Harper's own experiences as a student in fundamentalist institutions. --Orange Mike | Talk 15:10, 13 February 2009 (UTC)

February 12[edit]

You can't add redlinks to calendar articles. Write the article first. Chris (クリス • フィッチュ) (talk) 03:18, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

April 2009[edit]

Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia, and thank you for your contributions. One of the core policies of Wikipedia is that articles should always be written from a neutral point of view. A contribution you made to Jim Jones appears to carry a non-neutral point of view, and your edit may have been changed or reverted to correct the problem. Please remember to observe our core policies. Thank you. Please note that using the word "massacre" does not apply in this article and conveys a person point of view of such events. Not everyone was "massacred". Wildhartlivie (talk) 04:38, 25 April 2009 (UTC)

Allentown, Pennsylvania[edit]

I reverted your edits to Allentown, Pennsylvania as they were unsourced. Please provide refs and make edit summaries, thanks, Ruhrfisch ><>°° 19:17, 22 July 2009 (UTC)

The US Census Bureau's webpage (www.census.gov) clearly states that the median household income of Pennsylvania is $40,106; also, 22.4.4% is not even a real number!

Request[edit]

Could you please use edit summaries before saving your edits? Pretty please, with sugar on top? It is really very helpful for other editors.

Thanks! —BMRR (talk) 03:09, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

OK, how about explaining why it is that you refuse to use edit summaries? At this point I'm just curious more than anything. —BMRR (talk) 22:43, 31 July 2009 (UTC)

I don't know how.

When you edit a page on Wikipedia, there is a blank space directly below the edit window that says "edit summary." All you have to do is briefly describe what you edited, and then you can either preview your edits or save your edits, just as you would normally do. See Help:Edit summary. —BMRR (talk) 19:47, 1 August 2009 (UTC)

July 2009[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg Please stop. If you continue to vandalize pages by deliberately introducing incorrect information, as you did to Interstate 25, you will be blocked from editing Wikipedia. Rschen7754 (T C) 21:11, 31 July 2009 (UTC)

If Interstate 25 is 1062.77 miles long, why do the figures listed for the three states (NM - 462.12, CO - 304.95 and WY - 300.05) add up to 1068.11 miles?!?

Date formatting[edit]

Hello. I saw your recent edit to Ezra Taft Benson. Please review WP:DATE, as both Month DD, YYYY, and DD Month YYYY are acceptable on Wikipedia and are not necessarily associated with any country. The rule of thumb is to be consistent throughout the article. However, when using the former method, Comma#Uses (under In dates) indicates that a second comma should follow the date (after the year) in order to be punctually correct. Regards —Eustress talk 13:34, 5 March 2010 (UTC)

Edit summaries[edit]

Information.svg Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. Before saving your changes to an article, please provide an edit summary for your edits. Doing so helps everyone to understand the intention of your edit (and prevents legitimate edits from being mistaken for vandalism). It is also helpful to users reading the edit history of the page. Thank you. JohnInDC (talk) 10:38, 22 October 2010 (UTC)

I see others have raised this before. It's really quite a bother for other editors, who don't understand why you made a particular change, to have to then research the thing to see if the change makes any sense, or is properly sourced - I have in mind your edits to the "total areas" in the infoboxes of particular states. It's just the kind of change that a crafty vandal would make. Subtle, seemingly well-informed, but wrong. In your case (at least the one I checked), I was able to find your source, but I had to spend 10 minutes digging through articles and links to figure it out; and then another 5 minutes adding this template and message. You've been around Wikipedia to know how to add edit summaries, so please do it. Thanks. JohnInDC (talk) 10:38, 22 October 2010 (UTC)
Ah, I see that you have been adding them, most of the time, for a while now. I apologize then for my somewhat snippy tone. But do please continue to add them, meaningfully. (You had one that was very helpful, about where you were getting the area figures.) It saves the rest of us a lot of work. JohnInDC (talk) 11:01, 22 October 2010 (UTC)

Edit to Michigan[edit]

I have reverted your edit to this article as the area of Michigan is obviously not 96 sq miles. It would be best to provide a source for these kind of changes, as well. Rmhermen (talk) 14:41, 22 October 2010 (UTC)

October 2010[edit]

Information.svg Please do not add or change content without citing verifiable and reliable sources, as you did to Delaware. Before making any potentially controversial edits, it is recommended that you discuss them first on the article's talk page. Please review the guidelines at Wikipedia:Citing sources and take this opportunity to add references to the article. Thank you. I undid your change in the area of Delaware. There was no basis for reducing it by a square mile. Beirne (talk) 22:45, 27 October 2010 (UTC)

Wikipedia's article that lists the ranking of states by area states Delaware's square mileage at 2489.27; it seemed logical to round that figure down, rather than up.

You've made a good mathematical point. Next time just include your reasoning in the comment field and it will be fine. --Beirne (talk) 21:29, 29 October 2010 (UTC)

Unnecessary area accuracy[edit]

What's with all six-, seven-, eight-digit area figures for areas that you're adding? They add nothing of value to the article, only making it easy to misread (commas and periods look very similar in many browsers). Do you have a reason for adding that level of detail, other than the fact that it's available? - DavidWBrooks (talk) 21:22, 12 August 2011 (UTC)

A certain edit of yours[edit]

Hello, I came across one of your edits on Michele Landsberg where I saw you added a 1935 birthdate and yet I can't find any information verifying that. Someone affiliated with the subject has contacted me claiming that the birthdate is incorrect, could you tell me where you received your information on that please? SwisterTwister talk 05:24, 10 September 2011 (UTC)

http://connect.in.com/michele-landsberg/biography-197131.html. http://www.trueknowledge.com/q/biography_of_michele_landsberg. I don't know how reputable these sources are, though.

If you think this was a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks!--Jim in Georgia Contribs Talk 19:43, 10 April 2014 (UTC)

I have been editing US counties removing gratuitous information about land, water and total area. (I see no reason to provide figures to the hundredth of a square mile; a whole number is sufficient).

When you undertake changes that affect a large number of pages, you should first discuss the idea. In the case of your changes to statistics for Georgia counties, Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Georgia (U.S. state) would be a good place to start. The subject may have already been discussed and a consensus reached. We're a community.--Jim in Georgia Contribs Talk 20:57, 10 April 2014 (UTC)
