Rollback[edit]

I have Ferrari granted rollback rights to your account; the reason for this is that after a review of some of your contributions, I believe I can trust you to use rollback correctly by using it for its intended usage of reverting vandalism, and that you will not abuse it by reverting good-faith edits or to revert-war. For information on rollback, see Wikipedia:New admin school/Rollback and Wikipedia:Rollback feature. If you do not want rollback, just let me know, and I'll remove it. Good luck and thanks. –Juliancolton | Talk 19:49, 22 May 2009 (UTC)

Wikilinking[edit]

Hi, and thanks for your work on the English Wikipedia.

I noticed an article you worked on. Just a short note to point out that we don’t normally link:

  • dates
  • years
  • commonly known geographical terms (including well-known country-names), and
  • common terms you’d look up in a dictionary (unless significantly technical).

(This even applies for infoboxes.)

Thanks and my best wishes.

Yes, I do have a question - I didn't understand your talk page comment at all. What do you mean, you "un-reviewed" it? (You realise I started the article, don't you?) StAnselm (talk) 19:39, 19 February 2014 (UTC)

February 2014[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Nigel Sweeney may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "[]"s. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

FWIW[edit]

Water under the bridge now, but the next time you find what you think might be a sizable walled garden of non-notable articles, float a trial balloon with relevant authors and/or WikiProjects before filing an enormous raft of "clean-up" AfDs. Yes, there will be some people who will claim they're notable no matter what, but once you've put people under the gun with many AfDs counting down, they will feel beleaguered and are more likely to be defensive and engage in a blanket rejection of your arguments. If you approach them ahead of time, you may at least be able to agree on some criteria to winnow out chaff. Choess (talk) 02:25, 9 March 2014 (UTC)

Indeed. In this case, I wonder if you might be willing to go back through and do some of the cleanup yourself - it seems that every single one of your nominations is failing, and there is a useful place to discuss the relevant issues here:[1].--Jimbo Wales (talk) 12:21, 9 March 2014 (UTC)

I have opposed almost all of your proposed AFDs on peers not in the House of Lords, a few baronets, and so forth, but it has struck me that you have been remarkably civil in dealing with keen disagreement! Moonraker (talk) 19:52, 9 March 2014 (UTC)

Deletion discussion about Richard House[edit]

Hello, Flaming Ferrari,

I wanted to let you know that there's a discussion about whether Richard House should be deleted. Your comments are welcome at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Richard House .

If you're new to the process, articles for deletion is a group discussion (not a vote!) that usually lasts seven days. If you need it, there is a guide on how to contribute. Last but not least, you are highly encouraged to continue improving the article; just be sure not to remove the tag about the deletion nomination from the top.

Use of Sir prefix in article title[edit]

Hi, Flaming Ferrari. I noticed you recently gave Barney the barney barney some advice about when it's appropriate to use the Sir prefix in article titles. The advice doesn't entirely match the guidelines given at Wikipedia:Naming conventions (royalty and nobility); I was wondering if this meant that there's a different guideline somewhere else? If Wikipedia is giving self-contradictory advice to its editors, that needs to be straightened out one way or the other. — Paul A (talk) 02:40, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
