Guestbook re[edit]

Ho ho! You just asked me a question extremely difficult to answer; maybe my favorite composers would be, besides Beethoven, Chopin, and Bach: Rachmaninoff, Brahms, Tchaikovsky, Dvorak, Strauss, Debussy, Satie, Mozart, Liszt, Schumann, Schubert, ... and many more that I can't think of now! :-) --LaPianista! 19:21, 24 June 2008 (UTC)

Question on computing RD[edit]

Hi there. Thanks for correcting my spelling here, but in fact that spelling was deliberate. You weren't to know that, of course, but in any event the guidelines say that another person's spelling should not be corrected. Just a friendly note, --Richardrj talk email 15:43, 24 July 2008 (UTC)

It was just a little private joke from me to a wiki-friend. No harm done, --Richardrj talk email 19:21, 27 July 2008 (UTC)


Hi, I noticed your signature has an image in. Unfortunately, images are not allowed in signatures, per Wikipedia:SIG#Images. Please go to Special:Preferences and take the image out. Thanks! —Angr 09:29, 29 July 2008 (UTC)

Secret page[edit]

Aww, you cheated! I could have given you a hint...By the way, I personally would have used "What links here" or checking through one of the finder's contribs. Or, to be really nasty, type User:La Pianista/ in the new fill-in-as-you-type searchbox and see what pops up.

And I see you've adopted the "La- -ista" suffix and prefix. Catchy, eh? :)

Another "by-the-way" comment: I see they didn't let you use an image in your sig. I could design an equally cool one without it, if you like. —LaPianista! «talk» 20:35, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

Fixed straightaway![edit]

Hoorah! Both issues have been fixed...really minor stuff, nothing to brag about. Actually, I'm complemented that you took some of my ideas; that means they were good! ^_^

And here's some sigs to choose from. (Actually, you can't put images in your sig; I hadn't meant to imply that I would add one, if that's what it sounded like. I'll reformat it to make it so cool, it won't need one.) ;-)

The first one sprouted from an older version of mine:

La Alquimista ¿•?/¡•!

You could change the color scheme for this one, if you like (blue, red, pink, violet, orange, green, brown, grayscale, etc.)

La Alquimista

More soon...

P.S. If these sigs take up too much room to be put in preferences, you can copy the code to a subpage (for instance, La Alquimista/sig) and type {{subst:user:La Alquimista/sig}} and uncheck the box for "raw signature." It should come up just fine! :) —LaPianista! «talk» 17:49, 2 August 2008 (UTC)

Aww, thanks so much! I'm really flattered...


You big cheater but alright.

Motto of the day[edit]

Hello, I notice you're using one of the {{motd}} templates, run by Wikipedia:Motto of the day. You may have noticed that some of the mottos recently have been followed by a date from 2006, or on occasion simply "Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia". The reason for this is that Motto of the day is in some very serious need of help. Participation in the project, which has never been especially high, has dropped considerably over this past summer, to the point we have had several days where no motto was scheduled to appear at all. Over the past several weeks, I've been the only editor scheduling mottos at all, but there aren't enough comments on some of these mottos to justify their use. If we do not get some help - and soon - your daily mottos will stop. In order for us to continue updating these templates for you, we need your help.

When you get a chance between your normal editing, could you stop by our nominations page and leave a few comments on some of the mottos there, especially those that do not have any comments yet? This works very simply; you read a motto, decide whether or not you like it, and post your opinion just below the motto. That's it - no experience required, just an idea of what you personally like and what you feel reflects Wikipedia and its community. If you do have past experience with the project, then please close some of the older nominations once they've got a decent consensus going. There are directions on the nominations page on how to do this.

If you have any questions, please let me know, or post on the project's talk page. I'm looking forward to reading your comments on the suggested mottos, and any additional suggestions you'd like to make. Until then, happy editing! Hersfold (t/a/c) 03:40, 4 September 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for signing my guestbook[edit]

Thank you for signing my guestbook. LAAFan


Thank you so much for the lovely userpage you've created, La Alquimista. I am a newbie, and I'm really grateful to you for all your help and support. It'll take some time for me to understand and properly use wiki, but I'll manage with you there to help me out. Arigatou!Zebec 04:55, 15 October 2008 (UTC)

Done,but not properly[edit]

I did sign my page after putting a #, but the serial number is still 1, and not 2 as it should be. Feel free to try and correct it on my page if you wish to. Thanks for your help, all the same. Zebec 15:57, 17 October 2008 (UTC)

Spot The Differences[edit]

Go to your Userboxes page and your Guestbook and see what changes you can find. Hope you won't mind either! ;-) Zebec 15:08, 18 October 2008 (UTC)

You signed my guestbook a few days ago....[edit]

I must say, you are doing a great job coaching her. (Kinda like me and you way back when).

Anyhow, thought I'd leave a note! :)

La Pianista (TCS) 17:18, 19 October 2008 (UTC)

It only follows I give this to you....[edit]

You gave this to La Pianista so it only follows I give it to you as well. Thanks for everything, La Alquimista!

This Barnstar is awarded to La Alquimista for helping me out in times of need, and being one of the kindest Wikipedians I've ever known. Keep up your good work! Zebec 19:37, 20 October 2008 (UTC)

You're one of the best![edit]

Thanks for the barnstar, AND for the penguin icon! And, you deserved the barnstar I gave you. BTW, La Pianista was abashed on knowing that you (according to her)," actually attributed more to me than I actually deserve"! See my talk page. You'll understand. Thanks for everything. See ya!

Zebec 18:52, 21 October 2008 (UTC)

Not you,please![edit]

Okay, I'll tone down the number of barnstars I give out, but,please, I don't want her,let alone you,to not take my compliments seriously! ^_^ And, how did you fix the problem of the overlapping messages? Anyway, see ya! Zebec 13:27, 22 October 2008 (UTC)

Main Page redesign[edit]

The Main Page Redesign proposal is currently conducting a straw poll to select five new designs, before an RFC in which one will be proposed to replace the Main Page. The poll closes on October 31st. Your input would be hugely appreciated! Many thanks, PretzelsTalk! 14:18, 28 October 2008 (UTC)

Check it out.[edit]

Please see La Pianista's talk page. I wished them a Happy Diwali, and you can see their replies. Take care! Zebec 06:19, 29 October 2008 (UTC)

Sorted userboxes[edit]

I tidied up your userboxes page into nice little rectangular boxes in response to your request on WP:REWARD. Can I have my WP:BARNSTAR now? :D Yours, LGF1992UK (talk) 23:14, 31 October 2008 (UTC)

Oh darn, I didn't know you had rearranged the userboxes already, LGF1992UK, and I rearranged the userboxes again. What will La Alquimista do now? TopGearFreak 18:31, 30 November 2008 (UTC)


Might want to change this to this to avoid going thru a redirect. TREKphiler hit me ♠ 20:55, 27 November 2008 (UTC)

I award you one for finding Trekphiler's page for people who always think that "new message" bar is real. Aren't you glad you answered the phone? Tho I really shouldn't reward cheating. ;D TREKphiler hit me ♠ 06:11, 8 December 2008 (UTC)

Challenge fulfillment?[edit]

I believe I fulfilled your challenge, helping to make a userbox on a user's page more accurate and grammatically correct (see diff). Thank you! --Eustress (talk) 22:01, 17 January 2009 (UTC)

Re:Reward Board[edit]

Could you not repeatedly add your promotion of your guestbook to the Reward Board, because it's not related to improving the encyclopedia. Thank you. miranda 18:18, 12 March 2009 (UTC)


I don't know if this was intentional or not, but your sandbox is listed at Category:WikiLove templates. I thought that it might be better to inform you on this, rather than just remove your sandbox from the category without discussing it with you first. --Whip it! Now whip it good! 04:58, 13 March 2009 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Thank you for your gift. I especially liked the recording. I must say, you have very good diction and your voice sounds crystal clear when you record it, and the effect is almost spellbinding. It makes me want to hear it again and again. That's why it's really precious to me. Thanks for the memories. Thank you very very much. Zebec 17:28, 15 May 2009 (UTC)


Amazing! A true metamorphosis! Your drawing is amazing, and the detailing is PERFECT. Keep up the good work, La Alquimista!!! Zebec 09:52, 17 May 2009 (UTC)

Hello ![edit]

Artist's handiwork[edit]

I was talking about your self-made Haruhi wall clock, La Alquimista. It's an absolute marvel. Even the idea is impressive. Nothing less from you. :) Take care! Zebec 18:51, 22 May 2009 (UTC)

Never mind[edit]

I see. I was under the impression that you drew it. But, your not drawing it doesn't change the fact that you do draw well, does it? Zebec 10:47, 23 May 2009 (UTC)

Hello There too.[edit]

Hi,thanks for your comment on my talk page, it's quite useful. Now my relationship has built with them to the point where, strangely, my obsession is less; now I've (kind of) become friends with them I see their human-ness more which destroys my idealisation and makes my obsession less. I can't figure out what it's done to my love. :/ Yea, my username refers to "I love you." it's from Gossip Girl. From this clip specifically: Sorry my reply is really late, I've been busy this whole month and will be for the next couple of days. Threewords,eightletters... (talk) 05:29, 27 January 2010 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for June 26[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Something Like an Autobiography, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Japanese (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

twitter key[edit]

I think you may have inadvertently posted your Twitter API secret key on the reference desk. You might want to change or redact that, as perhaps Twitter will blame you if (when?) someone else misuses the key. -- Finlay McWalterTalk 12:26, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

Thank you! I hadn't noticed. ^_^ Changed the code. =) La Alquimista 13:16, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
