CopyClean Barnstar.png The Copyright Cleanup Barnstar
For taking the time to rewrite a copyright problem on Wikipedia so we did not lose a notable subject, at Sydenham Wells Park. Moonriddengirl (talk) 20:16, 6 July 2010 (UTC)
Thanks. :) I wish more people would do that. I hate deleting stuff, and it gives me faith in the Wikipedia way. :D --Moonriddengirl (talk) 20:16, 6 July 2010 (UTC)

Bush gives his poodle a new collar[edit]

I think you were giving my fellow Americans too much credit in your edit summary at George W. Bush. I'm betting the writer didn't even know Blair was out of office by 2009. -Rrius (talk) 16:33, 8 July 2010 (UTC)

I too assume it was an American; I just figure he or she was wrong for a different reason. While people knew who Blair was even before the Iraq War, most had never heard of poor Gordon until his press conference just before resigning. And then it was only because Jon Stewart made a bid deal out of it. On the other side, most Americans other than reporters are uncomfortable enough with calling a former president "President" that I just doubt that's it. -Rrius (talk) 16:46, 8 July 2010 (UTC)
Unlike most of my countrymen, I'm well aware of his phone-throwing tendencies. My friends all think I'm weird for following British politics, but I think it's their loss. I mean, the entire Brown premiership was exciting political theatre no matter whether you were a Brownite, Blairite, Tory, or even Lib Dem. The best we ever get are political mini-series like the Clinton impeachment or the Florida recount. -Rrius (talk) 17:05, 8 July 2010 (UTC)

Sydenham (disambiguation)[edit]

I think this is a clear case of Wikipedia:MOSDAB#Examples_of_individual_entries_that_should_not_be_created . What do you think? Widefox (talk) 19:58, 30 September 2010 (UTC)

Unless you consider those entries to be referred to by the name "Sydenham", this is clear-cut in the manual of style, I fixed the page removing those entries, and replacing them with the correct "part of title" links. I overlooked the primary topic, so fixed that too. Widefox (talk) 20:28, 30 September 2010 (UTC)

Re: English city move opposes[edit]

According to WP:PRIMARYTOPIC, to be a primary topic, you have to be more than the most important; you have to be more important than all the other things COMBINED, often substantially more important. Is Cambridge, England more important than Cambridge, Mass., Cambridge U., Cambridge, Jamaica, and all the other Cambridges put together? Is Plymouth, England more important than Plymouth Colony, Plymouth, Mass, Plymouth, Montserrat, Plymouth, Indiana and Plymouth the car combined? Decidedly not, in both cases Purplebackpack89 23:32, 23 October 2010 (UTC)

Read my comment on talk:Cambridge. 11:11, 24 October 2010 (UTC)
This is clearly nothing to do with Wikipedia content. Remarks made by Purpleback suggest other motives, and I suggest the proposed moves are inappropriate.--Kudpung (talk) 22:30, 24 October 2010 (UTC) PS: It's actually be suggested to me now that it's part of a trans-pond cabal.--Kudpung (talk) 02:05, 25 October 2010 (UTC)
BTW, there are plenty of precedents to negate this fatuous campaign - the histories around the pages on Worcester and Newport to name but a few. Do be sure to cast your !vote/comment whichever way you feel appropriates on all the affected pages.--Kudpung (talk) 10:30, 25 October 2010 (UTC)

Purplebackpack's interpretation of WP:PRIMARYTOPIC is not accurate. The terminology is plain and easy to follow, and the policy is clear for anyone who wants to read it. --Kudpung (talk) 12:43, 26 October 2010 (UTC)

London Wikimedia Fundraiser[edit]

Good evening! This is a friendly message from Chase me ladies, I'm the Cavalry, inviting you to the London Wikimedia Fundraising party on 19th December 2010, in approximately one week. This party is being held at an artistic London venue with room for approximately 300 people, and is being funded by Ed Saperia, a non-Wikipedian who has a reputation for holding exclusive events all over London. This year, he wants to help Wikipedia, and is subsidising a charity event for us. We're keen to get as many Wikimedians coming as possible, and we already have approximately 200 guests, including members of the press, and some mystery guests! More details can be found at - expect an Eigenharp, a mulled wine hot tub, a free hog roast, a haybale amphitheatre and more. If you're interested in coming - and we'd love to have you - please go to the ten.wikipedia page and follow the link to the Facebook event. Signing up on Facebook will add you to the party guestlist. Entry fee is a heavily subsidised £5 and entry is restricted to over 18s. It promises to be a 10th birthday party to remember! If you have any questions, please email me at chasemewiki at

Hope we'll see you there, (and apologies for the talk page spam) - Chase me ladies, I'm the Cavalry (talk) 23:21, 12 December 2010 (UTC)

ERA DB distributed traction[edit]

Hello Likelife, thanks for your edit to the CTRL article with a link to DB's press page (which I hadn't seen yet). A couple of days ago I posted a formatted cite/note for the original report at Talk:Channel Tunnel#Technical opinion of ERA regarding the conclusions of the IGC, but haven't had a chance to write it up yet. —Sladen (talk) 15:06, 17 April 2011 (UTC)

Ah I did not notice that and your welcome.Likelife (talk) 16:23, 18 April 2011 (UTC)

Barton Line[edit]

Hi, cannot understand why you switched the navbox on this article as Barton is in the Yorkshire and Humber region and not in the East Midlands region. I think that Barton Line needs removing from the East Midlands navbox as it is incorrect. Keith D (talk) 12:41, 19 April 2011 (UTC)

Sorry, just looking at the North Lincolnshire article, I did not realise that this part of Lincolnshire is in the Y&H region, I thought it was in the East Mids like the rest of the county. Also because I did see the line in the East Midlands box and not the Yorkshire one I thought it confirmed that. Likelife (talk) 12:50, 19 April 2011 (UTC)
No problem, it confuses a lot of people that Lincolnshire spans the 2 regions. Keith D (talk) 18:05, 19 April 2011 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited InterCity West Coast, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Preston (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.
