Gothic / Doom metal band list thingy[edit]

Duely noted. If he does it again, ill drop him a line. Leyasu 18:51, 23 December 2005 (UTC)

Ruud Gullit[edit]

According to this (and my memory) Gullit was not sacked as manager of NUFC, but resigned. Perhaps forced to resign would cover it? AndrewMcQ 11:48, 28 December 2005 (UTC)

Punctuation[edit]

Just to clear up my revert, please read this. Hopefully that explains it better than my edit summary. Nufy8 21:03, 30 December 2005 (UTC)

I was wondering myself if I should've put the punctuation inside the quotes when dealing with song titles, but I guess you're right, it does make more sense to clarify that the punctuation is not part of the title. Nufy8 21:33, 30 December 2005 (UTC)
Amen. Nufy8 21:37, 30 December 2005 (UTC)

Sorry for the delayed reply[edit]

Well, I've thought about it, and I'm really not a good writer or anything, so I think it's best to wait for you or someone else to edit the Maiden page. I can still give ideas on what to put in the article and help out, though. For 1983/Piece of Mind, it should be included that the World Piece tour was the first tour Maiden ever headlined in the U.S. Also, if it doesn't mention that with the addition of Nicko McBrain into the band, it became Maiden's most successful and still remains their longest lasting line up, it should. Malmsteen Maiden 10:28, 31 December 2005 (UTC)


Hehehehe. You can find info on all Maiden tours on maidenfans.com. I'll link you. http://www.maidenfans.com/imc/?link=tours&url=index&lang=eng

Take your time though, lol. ;-)Malmsteen Maiden 18:26, 31 December 2005 (UTC)

Thanks a lot![edit]

Now that you've done the Megadeth discography and Anthrax discography articles, I've started noticing similar problems elsewhere that I'm honor-bound to help clean up. Sheesh! (in case you couldn't tell, that was sarcasm) -- nae'blis (talk) 14:52, 4 January 2006 (UTC)

WP:AFL[edit]

Hi mate, was wondering if you were interested in taking a look at the footy WikiProject, WikiProject AFL. Drop us a line with your thoughts. Rogerthat Talk 11:40, 10 February 2006 (UTC)

Haha, no worries mate. Good to see a Pom learning about Aussie Rules. Firstly I suggest you take a look at AFL Video where you can buy DVDs and watch AFL games for free, a top site it is. But really there's nothing like experiencing it live, with sports like rugby what you see on TV is very similar to what happens at the stadium, but Aussie Rules needs to be seen live to fully appreciate it - bigger ground, more movement by the players, more tactics etc.
Anyway mate cheers for the feedback, Rogerthat Talk 10:40, 13 February 2006 (UTC)
Haha yeah it's a bit like that. We know the rules, it's just the umpires that don't! The game only lasts for 2 hours so there's less time for beer drinking and hooliganism (we save that for the cricket in summer). And because it's so exciting you have to focus on the game, no time to get drunk ay! Footy starts in two weeks by the way :) Rogerthat Talk 10:50, 13 February 2006 (UTC)
Getting tickets on the day is absolutely fine for most matches, the Gabba in Brisbane seats about 35,000 and the game isn't as popular there as in Victoria. In Sydney you're looking at the SCG which is around 40,000, and again the game isn't as popular, although you still get crowds of 30,000+ there, considering the more popular sport, rugby, gets crowds of 15,000, thats pretty good. Matches are always played on weekends (Friday night, Saturday/Sunday arvo, Sat night)
The finals series starts in September and it will be pretty hard getting a ticket to one of those games (well, if you book as soon as they go on sale, there's nothing ridiculous like 10 month waiting lists like in America). Click here for the 2006 fixture.
There's no Newcastle team mate, you might have to go for the other New South Wales team, the Sydney Swans (who won their first premiership in 72 years in 2005). Cheers, Rogerthat Talk 22:11, 13 February 2006 (UTC)

Taking the ....[edit]

Hi Iain, no, it wasn't me who added it. My first reaction when I saw it was similar to yours, but I thought it deserved a little extra background digging, & the very informative website which I linked to seems to back it up. Of course, you can't believe everything you read on a website... but, under the joviality, it has the ring of well-researched truth. All these folk etymologies need to be taken with a pinch of salt, but as long as we don't state "this IS the origin of the phrase" then I think it's OK to leave it in, until someone proves definitively otherwise.

Slipknot discography[edit]

Yeah you seem to be right. I've checked other discographies and noticed what you said. The best discography table I've found is the Iron Maiden discography btw where you can see a thumbnail picture for the albums too. It's a different format to the one it is has at the moment though, but in the article its only difference is having the thumbnail picture next to it, but the format is different to accomodate the little picture in the table. You could modify the Maiden template by including the info already provided in the current Slipknot discog table. This is what I did for the American Head Charge article, which is my current wiki preoccupation. What do you think? I'm considering doing the work myself in the distant future (if it remains the same), but wish to avoid an edit conflict. LuciferMorgan 19:24, 6 March 2006 (UTC)

PS. If you need any Slipknot information pre-1998 about Slipknot, www.mfkr1.com is a great site, totally dedicated only to Slipknot info from that time, especially about MFKR. and Crowz. etc. Maybe the link should be added to the main Slipknot page LuciferMorgan 19:40, 6 March 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for the reply... sometimes there's so many wiki policies it's hard to learn it all in one go so thanks for the one on the discogs. Yeah collaboration is definitely better, especially when time is limited, so it's cool another wiki user did the image bit. The one's for the albums they could have just quoted the code from their album page image (they probably did anyway). Take careLuciferMorgan 20:30, 7 March 2006 (UTC)

Reply[edit]

Hi, i am one the people supposedly accused of vandalizing your wikis (yes you accused more than one). I am angered by this as you obviously do not realize that the person who actually did it probably has a dynamic IP address. So you will probably never catch them and you must realize that because other people also have dynamic IP address (due to having dial-up internet and other causes) might run upon your accusations (as have I) by chance when they browse wikipedia. As of this moment i ran a WHOIS against myself i found that there is one other person possessing the same IP I have just in America. If someone vandalizes your wikis and they do not have a username, just delete the changes and please do no make a fuss. If you block that IP, you will end up blocking multiple people from correctly editing wikipedia who unluckily obtained the ip 4.23.226.177 that you sent messages to.

(copied on my poster's IP address's talk page)
Some points:
1 - I cannot block anyone as I'm not an administrator
2 - I am fully aware that I'm flagging vandalism by IP addresses and that these addresses can be shared. As it's recommended elsewhere, if you have problems editing because some lowlife moron who happens to share your IP has vandalised a load of articles and had the IP address blocked... register. Create a username. It's as simple as that. That way even if you log on via the same IP, as long as your edits are OK, you won't be blocked. Would you rather we let the vandals go unpunished so they could just go on wrecking our (and in this I include yourself) hard work?
Please - sign up. Create a username. It takes minutes and will stop all the problems.

Do you know if there is a video for Old? Someone added it to the videography... but I've never seen or heard of a video for it. DMighton 17:06, 27 March 2006 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:Megadeth-RudeAwakening.jpg)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Megadeth-RudeAwakening.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BetacommandBot 06:21, 13 September 2007 (UTC)

Categories[edit]

Hello IainP, Before I get to the issue noted in the section heading, I want to express my appreciation for your work in creating the two articles, Japanese Association of Supporting Streetchildren and Blue Dragon Children's Foundation. Please do keep up your work in this area.

Now, as for Categories: I discovered these articles owing to the fact that you had placed them both in Category:Child activists -- a category which I check in on from time to time because I created it. I immediately noticed the new articles, and in light of their titles, I wondered if they were really about "child activists". In both cases it turned out that the answer was "no". You see, the term "child activists" refers to children who are notable as activists -- not as you may have thought, to activists on behalf of children. It's certainly possible, though, that we could create a category along those lines -- if there are enough articles about such people to warrant a category. In any event, both of these articles are already properly categorized as "children's charities", so readers will be able to find them there.

Needless to say, I deleted Category:Child activists from both articles -- and while I was at it I also deleted two other categories, because they were redundant as parent cats to more specific categories that you had already made use of. I know it's hard to resist the temptation to put one's articles in as many categories as possible, but if everybody did that it would defeat the whole purpose of having categories. So I hope you will exercise a bit of restraint on that score in your future work. Thanks again, and best regards, Cgingold (talk) 02:22, 6 August 2008 (UTC)
