Hello, I saw that you had added a link to the Spanish version of List of birds of Chile as a hatnote. Similar edit with List of birds of Poland. I'm working on the whole series of "List of birds of ..." articles and I haven't seen that before. I would have thought that it would be unnecessary as there are already the "Languages" links at the bottom of the left column. Alternatively, if they are a good idea, they could be added to the other couple of hundred articles in the series. What is your thinking? 04:01, 6 January 2015 (UTC)
- Hi, SchreiberBike. To be honest, I'm not sure if they are a good idea. I'm actively considering them. It seemed like a good idea when I first added it to List of birds of Poland and it's definitely helpful in that case. But, then I added it to List of birds of Chile and now I'm not so sure. My main concern is that it's unclear when to stop using this. Should all articles directly about Poland or Chile have hatnotes to their corresponding language wiki? Probably not. If permitted, this type of hatnote could become ubiquitous. At the moment I'm leaning towards removing my own hatnote edits but I still am still unsure. Maybe it could be permitted on a case-by-case basis when it "makes sense". I started a conversation at Wikipedia talk:Hatnote#Advice on hatnote to foreign language version the other day about this. Nobody has yet responding but there you can read my thinking on the matter. Jason Quinn (talk) 08:25, 6 January 2015 (UTC)
- Thanks. I've replied at Wikipedia talk:Hatnote#Advice on hatnote to foreign language version. I'm curious what others will think. 18:39, 6 January 2015 (UTC)
Infobox photo discussion
Hi again. Happy New Year. Can you offer your opinion on which photo is better for the Infobox here? If you're not able to participate, just disregard this message; you don't have to message me. Thanks. Nightscream (talk) 01:08, 10 January 2015 (UTC)
- Hi. Thanks for participating in the photo discussion. I really appreciate it. One thing: A new photo has been uploaded and added to the discussion. I hope I'm not bothering you by asking if you would mind indicating whether this changes your viewpoint, or whether it remains unchanged? Thank you very much.

Happy adminship birthday!
Damion Scott Infobox photo discussion
Hi. Damion Scott has taken issue with the photo in his article. He previously demanded that I replace it with one that I thought inferior to the one already in the Infobox, and has now replaced with a third one of his own. In the interest of WP:CONSENSUS, can you offer your opinion on this? Thanks again. Nightscream (talk) 19:25, 2 February 2015 (UTC)

|Great page. I am new to Wikipedia and had difficulty in finding how to get a message to you. I have done some new research on Fitzgerald's text in which you might be interested. Could you please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org? Proto-Gatsby (talk) 20:28, 23 March 2015 (UTC)|
- Hi, Proto-Gatsby. I do all my editing directly online so please just use my talk page to contact me. I posted a welcome message on your account's talk page to help get to started being a Wikipedia. It contains some important things to know like our editing policies and how to use Wikipedia. The easiest way to learn in my opinion is to start small (fix spelling, grammar, and links) and work your way up to more complicated things. One of the important policies we have at Wikipedia (and it may apply to what you are doing) is "mo original research". All material added to Wikipedia should be verifiable though reliable sources. Congratulations on becoming a Wikipeida. Just learning how to use a talk page is a big step and means you are well on your way! Cheers, Jason Quinn (talk) 13:09, 25 March 2015 (UTC)
