Hi Gilderien, I restored this to you. I was doing some cleanup and hit you in error, you are obviously active with Wikipedia, and it looks like you used the old bot about a year ago(?); sorry for any confusion! If you have no intentions of ever actually using the mass-message service there would be no need for this, ping me if you don't need it and I'll clean it back off. Happy editing, — xaosflux Talk 20:40, 2 August 2014 (UTC)
- Thanks Xaosflux, not a problem. I haven't used it for a while, but I do intend to in the future, and since it's more convenient than AWB I think I'll hang onto the flag for now :) --Gilderien Talk|List of good deeds 21:25, 2 August 2014 (UTC)
Regarding your latest change. Is that more accurate?
Well I don't know if it is more accurate. It is just as much so I think. New Guinea is part of Australia (continent). This all just depends on what your definition of a continent is. I like to think of the continent as including the associated islands that are part of the continental shelf, and the landmass would be continental mainland. But all of this and any other sensible definition get thrown out the window with the sub-divisions of North and South Amererica, and Europe and Asia, and Africa for that matter. which are all part of much larger landmasses known as the Americas and Afro-Eurasia.
- Ok. I was going from the definition a continent as the landmass, and the islands being not part, I suppose there are advantages and disadvantages to both definitions.--Gilderien Chat|What I've done 18:46, 3 August 2014 (UTC)

WikiProject Good articles Future GAN Backlog Drive
Hello everyone! Hope you've all been having a great summer!
TheQ Editor recently proposed the idea of having another Backlog Drive in either September/October or November/December of this year. For those of you who have participated in the past two drives you know I was the one who organized them, however, come September, this will be my most important year in school so I will not be able to coordinate this drive (if it happens). TheQ Editor has volunteered to be a coordinator for the drive. If any of you would like to co-coordinator, please notify TheQ Editor on his talk page.
If you would be interested in participating in a Backlog Drive sometime before the end of this year, please notify TheQ Editor. Also, make sure to specify what month(s) work best for you.
At the time this message was sent out, the backlog was at 520 nominations. Since May, the backlog has been steadily increasing and we are currently near an all time high. Even though the backlog will not disappear over one drive, this drive can lead to several others which will (hopefully) lead to the day where there is no longer a backlog.
As always, the more participants, the better, and everyone is encouraged to participate!

DYK for Church of All Saints (Sutton Courtenay)
|On 27 August 2014, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Church of All Saints (Sutton Courtenay), which you recently nominated. The fact was ... that a single village churchyard (pictured) contains the graves of George Orwell, Earl Asquith, and David Astor? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Church of All Saints (Sutton Courtenay). You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, live views, daily totals), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.|
