03:02:53, 25 September 2014 review of submission by Toddlaw[edit]


Hi, I revised the article to include multiple references, as recommended by the reviewer.

I also improved the case for notability of the subject, in several ways. I listed more of his works, and also provided evidence that one of his books has been on a best seller for over 80 weeks.

Please re-consider the submission.

Sincerely, Todd Law

Retired? Why? my friend? OMG you are one of the most productive user on Wikipedia! Please reconsider. You will be missed :'-( Jim Carter 16:59, 1 October 2014 (UTC)


  • The #wikipedia-en IRC channel is not associated with Wikipedia. It is not maintained, controlled or governed by any Wikipedia organization. People have left Wikipedia, including one of mentors, Chzz, because of no control by Wikipedia. However, people have been blocked and had their admin bit removed due to what they said there. I consider the Wikipedia channels on IRC to be cesspools. Don't leave Wikipedia on account of anything said in that dung heap. When you do come back (I really hope you will), stay aware from there.

Wikipedia might not be the same, or in control of IRC, but it is the same people. I don't feel I want to be a part of a community with such people. I wish you all best of luck while I'm gone, and we'll see if I come back in the future. My last wikibreks lasted max 1 day each... (tJosve05a (c) (Retired) 21:23, 1 October 2014 (UTC)
Yes and no. Many of the people on IRC rarely contribute to Wikipedia. Wikipedia is made up of a group of people from all walks of like, but mostly young and male. With any somewhat random group, you are going to get people with prejudices and different ways of thinking. I've learned alot from so many different people. That has been the most enjoyable part of Wikipedia. The least enjoyable has been dealing with bigots and people who think they are at the center of the Universe. Every person has to determine when the bad outweighs the good on their personal scale. I refuse to be on IRC, be a part of ANI discussion except when necessary and edit many subjects in order to keep me sane and still be able to edit here. I really hope you will still find enjoyment in editing Wikipedia and stay around. Your interactions with me have been nothing but enjoyable and in many cases, a learning experience for me. But if you can't find enjoyment, I do hope you stay away. This place isn't worth it to be miserable. Hmmm, what else is there to do in a Swedish winter? Bgwhite (talk) 22:13, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

I would like to take this oppertunity to thank all on you people who have writen such nice things to me here, to my mail, and on IRC (yes, I have still been on there, just not in official channels).

I have decided to take a small Wikibreak instead of retire, because I know I will come back and edit...SO congratulations! You have not seen the last of me! (tJosve05a (c) (on a break) 08:56, 2 October 2014 (UTC)
