Some falafel for you![edit]

Falafel award.png For withdrawing the Salman Khan RM, not specifically that I have any stake for that RM, just nice to see editors who can change their minds with good grace. Cheers. In ictu oculi (talk) 02:24, 19 September 2013 (UTC)

AfD on ALD[edit]

Thanks for your AfD comment. But why did you remove the notability template? My thought was the template might draw some interest by itself. In any event, I've seen articles rescued via the AfD process. (E.g., the inclusionists get going and fix things.) Maybe this one will do the same. – S. Rich (talk) 23:30, 10 January 2014 (UTC)

Eliza R. Snow Performing Arts Center[edit]

I removed your NN tag, because this is almost certain to pass WP:GNG. Bearian (talk) 18:24, 6 February 2014 (UTC)

Main Page appearance: Mitt Romney[edit]

This is a note to let the main editors of Mitt Romney know that the article will be appearing as today's featured article on March 12, 2014. If this article needs any attention or maintenance, it would be preferable if that could be done before its appearance on the Main Page. If you prefer that the article appear as TFA on a different date, or not at all, please ask Bencherlite (talk · contribs). You can view the TFA blurb at Wikipedia:Today's featured article/March 12, 2014. If it needs tweaking, or if it needs rewording to match improvements to the article between now and its main page appearance, please edit it, following the instructions at Wikipedia:Today's featured article/requests/instructions. The blurb as it stands now is below:

Mitt Romney in 2013

Mitt Romney (born 1947) is an American businessman who was Governor of Massachusetts from 2003 to 2007 and the Republican nominee for President of the United States in the 2012 election. He was raised in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, by his parents Lenore and George Romney, and spent two years in France as a Mormon missionary. He married Ann Davies in 1969, with whom he has had five children. After studying at Brigham Young and Harvard universities, he joined the management consultancy Bain & Company before co-founding the spin-off investment firm Bain Capital. He unsuccessfully ran as the Republican candidate in the 1994 Massachusetts election for Senate against Ted Kennedy. He relaunched his political career after successfully running the Salt Lake Organizing Committee for the 2002 Winter Olympics. Elected Governor of Massachusetts in 2002, he helped enact state health care reform legislation, the first of its kind in America. Romney won the 2012 Republican presidential nomination, becoming the first Mormon to be a major party presidential nominee, but lost the election to Barack Obama by a 332–206 electoral college margin and by 51–47 percent in the popular vote.

UConn[edit]

Just so you know, some of the vandalism you reverted on University of Connecticut was actually correct. At the time of the edit, they had won 18 national championships, having just won the men's basketball title. They have since won the women's basketball title, so now they have 19 (9 women's basketball, 4 men's basketball, 3 field hockey, 3 men's soccer.) Smartyllama (talk) 14:34, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

Upon further review, the edit was added after the women's basketball title was won, and the 1948 men's soccer title is not an NCAA championship, so the editor was correct to increase it to 18 (since my two errors canceled out in that respect) but I was wrong to increase it to 19. I have reverted my own edit. Smartyllama (talk) 14:41, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
