Your attitude[edit]

Comedy, sarcasm and making people who use IE4 feel bad is generally frowned upon at Wikipedia. PirateArgh!!1! 04:07, 18 April 2010 (UTC)

I'm sorry about that. While I may have thought I was being helpful, the tone was decidedly snide and inappropriate. Should I delete it or try to "collapse" it so it isn't a distraction to future readers? Should I add an apology to it on that talk page? Huw Powell (talk) 08:27, 18 April 2010 (UTC)
I've contacted numerous uninvolved neutral senior admins to arbitrate a punishment and address privacy issues. It doesn't really matter what you do because I plan on being outraged regardless of what happens. PirateArgh!!1! 09:27, 18 April 2010 (UTC)
I would like to learn how to be an angry extremist reactionary. Plz hlep eme!!1! Nuttish (talk) 21:19, 18 April 2010 (UTC)

Huw, I've enjoyed your edits and your contribution to the environment of learning and teaching here. Godspeed. Nuttish (talk) 21:34, 30 April 2010 (UTC)

You are so kind, gentle stranger. Huw Powell (talk) 23:19, 30 April 2010 (UTC)

An editor has nominated one or more articles which you have created or worked on, for deletion. The nominated article is The Conservative Camp. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also Wikipedia:Notability and "What Wikipedia is not").

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion(s) by adding your comments to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/The Conservative Camp. Please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate.

Please note: This is an automatic notification by a bot. I have nothing to do with this article or the deletion nomination, and can't do anything about it. --Erwin85Bot (talk) 01:07, 5 May 2010 (UTC)

Thank you, oh gentle, useful, and generally harmless bot! Huw Powell (talk) 02:44, 5 May 2010 (UTC)

Greeting’s[edit]

So, that’s where that blasted comma got to! Cheers¡ --Technopat (talk) 18:36, 14 June 2010 (UTC)

Well right now, it's just being stored in a box marked "do not place singly between subject and predicate", but I'm sure I'll find a use for it soon. Huw Powell (talk) 23:23, 14 June 2010 (UTC)

MN Forward[edit]

Hi!

See my comment. -- 94.101.2.145 (talk) 18:58, 28 August 2010 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Minnesota Forward[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Minnesota Forward has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Possible non notable political action group

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

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

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{dated prod}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. The speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. Kudpung (talk) 13:28, 8 September 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up. I started a talk page section for you to present your concerns. Huw Powell (talk) 18:23, 8 September 2010 (UTC)

edits to Roy Masters (commentator)[edit]

The Masters article needs trimming of contentious, unsourced material, not the opposite. Eg. appending "the cult of Roy" to a heading that made no reference a so-called cult of Roy is misleading. Any contentious material needs to be sourced, per WP:LIVE. Mrtea (talk) 05:23, 2 December 2011 (UTC)

The article is complex, and definitely needs work. It's hard to "reference" a heading. Feel free to remove the contentious part I added, and thank you for bringing it up here. Huw Powell (talk) 06:22, 2 December 2011 (UTC)

Sgt. Pepper Straw Poll[edit]

There is currently a straw poll taking place here. Your input would be appreciated. ~ GabeMc (talk|contribs) 23:37, 7 July 2012 (UTC)

Presented my opinion, thanks, though the logic it is based on will probably entail thousands if not millions of edits to adhere to. Huw Powell (talk) 00:04, 8 July 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for September 15[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Essential oil, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Expression (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

Hmmm, thanks, interesting I missed that. Unfortunately, the meaning needed is not listed on that DA page. Huw Powell (talk) 23:42, 15 September 2012 (UTC)
Found what was needed at Ram press (food). Thanks, DPL bot... Huw Powell (talk) 23:45, 15 September 2012 (UTC)

May 2013[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Viriditas. I wanted to let you know that I undid one or more of your recent contributions to Data science because it didn't appear constructive. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks! Viriditas (talk) 07:30, 4 May 2013 (UTC)

This is unacceptable. If you do it again, you'll get reported to ANI. I hope this warning is clear. Viriditas (talk) 08:50, 4 May 2013 (UTC)
The article is devoid of content despite having many words. It needs to be rewritten from the ground up, which is where I left it. And please, who are you to make threats and warnings? Kindly assume good faith before attacking me again. Huw Powell (talk) 01:18, 12 May 2013 (UTC)

Bypassing redirects[edit]

Hello, there's no point in bypassing redirects, as you did at Bubble and squeak. Then again, there's no point in reverting redirect bypasses, because that wastes even more server resources for no good reason. However, I'm going to undo part of your edit to Joni Mitchell, where I first encountered your contributions, because "R&B" is far more commonly used than "rhythm and blues". Graham87 15:31, 20 August 2013 (UTC)

Why is there no point? The reason is to avoid double redirects developing. And "bypass" as you linked says nothing about this. What I did was fix a link that did not go directly to the intended page. "R&B" is leetspeak for the encyclopedic correct phrase "rhythm and blues". Thank you for dropping by. Huw Powell (talk) 01:51, 21 August 2013 (UTC)
If you really insist on it showing as "R&B", pipe the link. Huw Powell (talk) 01:55, 21 August 2013 (UTC)
Whoops, the guideline I meant to show you was this one, which definitely applies to your situation. Wikipedia should use the terms that are most commonly understood by readers. Graham87 06:47, 21 August 2013 (UTC)
Ah, thanks, very interesting. It used to matter IIRC, but I stand corrected. I see how R&B could be a "redirect with possibilities". Could be a tough habit to break, so bear with me please. Huw Powell (talk) 00:23, 22 August 2013 (UTC)

Please check this page and fix the errors highlighted. If you think this is a false positive, you can report it to my operator. Thanks, ReferenceBot (talk) 03:43, 10 November 2013 (UTC)

It's all good, I think, by the time I was done I had killed all the useless links to the cruft page. Huw Powell (talk) 09:41, 10 November 2013 (UTC)

It doesn't appear to be a real DA page. Editing it and its talk page to reflect this. Huw Powell (talk) 03:06, 2 February 2014 (UTC)

Soliciting comment...[edit]

Hi! Would you care to review or comment at my FA nomination for the article Misterioso (Thelonious Monk album)? It is a short article about a jazz album. Information on reviewing an FA nomination's criteria is available at WP:FACR. If not, feel free to ignore this message. Cheers! Dan56 (talk) 19:36, 8 March 2014 (UTC)

The image captions seem a little forced. Getting there, though. Huw Powell (talk) 02:07, 9 March 2014 (UTC)

Wikipedia has made a huge mistake[edit]

The new fonts - the awful serifs for headers and whatever that godawful sans-serif they are now using for content - are both unreadable.

I'll be gone from this site - reading and editing - until these awful user-experience errors are fixed. Bye bye, your website sucks. Huw Powell (talk) 07:13, 4 April 2014 (UTC)
