Erroneous Information regarding Wycliffe Grousbeck[edit]

  • Please note that Mr. Grousbeck disputes that Adam Kilcourse has ever been involved with his Celtics ownership group.
  • Please do not add that to his entry.
  • Thank you for your attention.

You're adding a lot of vaguely notable or useful trivia; at the very least, you could cite your sources. --Golbez 22:50, 16 July 2006 (UTC)

My information[edit]

Believe it or not, the information I have compiled has come from the Trivial Pursuit Millennium Edition PC Game. All the information I have added to Wikipedia is legitimate information. --Mr. Brain 23:41, 16 July 2006 (UTC)

I didn't say it wasn't; but you still must cite your sources. --Golbez 23:58, 16 July 2006 (UTC)

Nellie Ball[edit]

I don't see anything wrong with saying "Nellie Ball has a fair share of opponents" as opposed to your version ("Nellie Ball has more than a fair share of opponents"). It seems that you're just trying to overemphasis the opinion that Nellie Ball does not work. Can we please just stick to the former version. Next time you change it please explain why. Thank you. Bash Kash (talk) 02:12, 24 May 2008 (UTC)

My apologies, I'm truly sorry[edit]

Sorry about that, my mistake. It just seemed to me at the time that a vast majority of basketball purists have criticized Nellie Ball. Incidentally, though, I must tell you that I originally wrote "Nellie Ball has a fair share of opponents," and at the time it didn't seem strong enough. Now that I look back, it did seem to overstate the case. What I wrote about Nellie Ball is true, though(I did contribute a lot on the article), especially the part about the offense's deficencies and other facts about Nelson and the offense. I ask that this information not be deleted from the article.Mr. Brain (talk) 04:43, 27 May 2008 (UTC)

Hey, no problem. I appreciate your work on the article, actually. I have seen all your additions though the history of the page. Yes, all of the information you added is indeed correct. One way to ensure that your info does not get deleted is by citing your sources. Also see WP:RS. Cheers, Bash Kash (talk) 05:15, 27 May 2008 (UTC)

Error in the "Lead guitarists" category page[edit]

I notice that George McCorkle's name is above Yngwie Malmsteen's name on the page when it shouldn't be. "Malmsteen" comes before "McCorkle." Can someone please help show me how to put Malmsteen's name above McCorkle's? Mr. Brain (talk) 14:59, 6 October 2008 (UTC)

Chuck Schuldiner[edit]

The lead guitarists category is, in many current instances, an outdated one; from a time when a band had one guy who played the leads while the other guy played rhythms. In the case of Schudliner and Death, both guitarists (as the band has always had another guitarist besides Schuldiner) are constantly playing single-note parts, rhythms, and 'solos'. To call Schuldiner a 'lead guitarist' is to call all modern metal guitarists 'lead guitarists'. If he was lead, who was following? A Sniper (talk) 16:42, 17 October 2008 (UTC)


If I remember correctly...[edit]

Well, Schuldiner should be considered a lead guitarist for his unique guitar solos, which were complex, intricate, and very melodic/symphonic yet lightning fast. If I remember correctly, during his time as frontman of Death, Schuldiner primarily handled a majority of guitar solos on all Death's albums. Whoever was Chuck's co-guitarist on a particular album would handle rhythm duties. True, the co-guitarist would get to play solos occasionally (Andy LaRocque on Individual Thought Patterns and Shannon Hamm on The Sound of Perservance as examples), but Schuldiner played the majority of solos.

Excuse me, but I was just merely spotting a mistake....[edit]

I don't mean to be rude, but under the category "Lead guitarists," I spotted a simple spelling mistake. Mike McCready's last name came before Daron Malakian's name, which was incorrect. Mr. Brain (talk) 04:22, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

I understand your edit was in good faith, but please see Wikipedia:Categorization of people#Other exceptions. Thanks.-5- (talk) 04:28, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

The template for Shades of Blue...[edit]

I hate to be an inconvience, but I seemed to have messed up the Shades of Blue template. Could somebody please fix it? And would someone also kindly show me the Wikipedia page where it talks about to being able to create & fix a template? I hope I can be forgiven for this slight, unintentional mishap. Mr. Brain (talk) 06:37, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Bango (mascot)[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Bango (mascot) requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about about a person, organization (band, club, company, etc.) or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you. Bongomatic 13:31, 5 May 2009 (UTC)

Hangon tag on Bango (mascot)[edit]

Just to let you know that there's no need for the {{hangon}} tag on this page as the speedy has been declined. I see you re-added after both the speedy and the hangon was removed. This was unecessary as once the speedy tag was removed the hang on had nothing to apply to. Once a speedy has been declined it is normally not eligable for speedy (see WP:DP#Speedy deletion) so there's no need for the hangon to remain. Dpmuk (talk) 10:41, 6 May 2009 (UTC)

Articles for deletion nomination of Curse of Chick Hearn[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

I have nominated Curse of Chick Hearn, an article that you created, for deletion. I do not think that this article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and have explained why at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Curse of Chick Hearn. Your opinions on the matter are welcome at that same discussion page; also, you are welcome to edit the article to address these concerns. Thank you for your time.
Please contact me if you're unsure why you received this message. Tagishsimon (talk) 23:49, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

Whereas you can certainly find all manner of good references for events happening during the duration of the alleged curse, I put it to you that you will not find any good references for the alleged curse, and so your effort will all be in vain. Still. So long as you enjoy the pursuit, there's no harm done. --Tagishsimon (talk) 00:29, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
Ah, sadly a reliable source has been found for the curse, so it looks like the article will stay. I've added said source to the article. --Tagishsimon (talk) 10:34, 5 August 2009 (UTC)

Userfication and invitation[edit]

Are you familar with userfication? It is the wonderful way of developing articles with less risk of deletion? You can create any article with [[User:Mr. Brain/NAME OF ARTICLE]] Also, you can retrieve the old articles which were deleted:


Lolcat2.jpg The article you created was just deleted?
All is not lost. Here is what you can do right now:

Many administrators will be happy to give you a copy of your deleted article, either by putting it on a special user page for you (a process called userfication) or by e-mailing you a copy.

Once you have the article, you can try to resolve the issues why it was deleted.

If you've repaired the article, or you believe the reasons for deleting the article were in error, you can dispute the deletion at Deletion Review. Generally, you must show how the previous deletion(s) were in error, but this is the place to resolve disputes about whether a deletion was wrong.

Ikip (talk) 02:13, 12 September 2009 (UTC)

I was impressed how you helped, here: User_talk:Firegemini#Randy_Ellefson and I am saddened about all your hard work being deleted, you maybe interested in this incredible group of editors:

WikiProject Fisheries and Fishing
Hello, Mr. Brain.
You have been invited to join the Article Rescue Squadron, a collaborative effort to rescue articles from deletion if they can be improved through regular editing.
For more information, please visit the project page, where you can >> join << and help rescue articles tagged for deletion and rescue. Ikip (talk) 02:13, 12 September 2009 (UTC)

The Article Rescue Squadron[edit]

I just want everyone to know that I'm joining the Article Rescue Squadron. I hope that one of the current memebers/administrators would please send me a note recognizing me as an official member of the squadron as soon as possible. Thank you. Mr. Brain (talk) 02:59, 12 September 2009 (UTC)
You can add this to User:Mr. Brain, you user page: {{Template:User Article Rescue Squadron}} which creates this:

Gnome-help-browser.svg This user rescues articles for the Article Rescue Squadron.



Here is the official welcome :)

Hi, Mr. Brain, welcome to the Article Rescue Squadron! We are a growing community of Wikipedia editors dedicated to identifying and rescuing articles that have been tagged for deletion. Every day hundreds of articles are deleted, many rightfully so. But many concern notable subjects and are poorly written, ergo fixable and should not be deleted. We try to help these articles quickly improve and address the concerns of why they are proposed for deletion. This covers a lot of ground and your help is appreciated!

If you have any questions, feel free to ask on the talk page, and we will be happy to help you.

And once again - Welcome! Ikip (talk) 03:11, 12 September 2009 (UTC)

How to retrieve your articles which were deleted[edit]

RE: Definitely interested in having some of my articles retrieved.

You don't need the article rescue squadron to retrieve your articles.

Just ask one of these editors for your article:

If you have problems, or have any other questions, let me know. Okay? Ikip (talk) 03:14, 12 September 2009 (UTC)

there are four versions of your article which were deleted. http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Ellen%27s_Stardust_Diner&action=edit&redlink=1 ask one of the admins above for the four copies, if you like. No one "has" your article. Only admins (there are 1600 admins) can see and copy and paste deleted articles, regular editors can't. Ikip (talk) 06:25, 28 October 2009 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Rocky (mascot)[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Rocky (mascot), requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G11 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page seems to be unambiguous advertising which only promotes a company, product, group, service or person and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become an encyclopedia article. Please read the guidelines on spam as well as Wikipedia:FAQ/Business for more information. You may also wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles - see the Article Wizard.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay.

Paul Brown formatting fix?[edit]

Hey -- Just noticed that there's a formatting error of some kind above the Paul Brown coaching tree after your recent changes (it displays "Template:Chart/celltTemplate:Chart/cellb").
