July 2007[edit]

Thank you for experimenting with Wikipedia by creating the page Sodartin. Your test worked, and the page that you created has been or soon will be deleted. Please use the sandbox for any other tests you want to do. Take a look at the welcome page if you would like to learn more about contributing to our encyclopedia. John254 02:39, 16 July 2007 (UTC)

Please do not remove speedy deletion tags from articles, as you did with Sodartin. If you do not believe the article deserves to be deleted, then please do the following:

  1. Place {{hangon}} on the page. Please do not remove any existing speedy deletion tag(s).
  2. Make your case on the article's talk page.

Administrators will look at your reasoning before deciding what to do with the article. Thank you. John254 02:42, 16 July 2007 (UTC)

Speedy delete removal[edit]

Why did you delete the Speedy deletion A7 at Son of No One (film)? Only administrators may remove them after reviewing them, and your name is not included on the list. Until then I'm adding it back again. On the other hand, if you would like to request a hold on the delete, you may use the {{hang on}} template. Thank you, TheFSAviator ( TC ) 04:43, 25 December 2010 (UTC)

  • I'm sorry, my mistake. I thought any editor other than a page's creator was allowed to remove speedy deletions. Thank you for letting me know. Mr. Granger (talk) 05:52, 25 December 2010 (UTC)
    • Actually, Aviator, that isn't true. WP:CSD says only the creator of the article cannot remove the speedy template. But it would help, Mr. Granger, if you stated why you don't think the articles in question qualify for speedy deletion. Erpert (let's talk about it) 07:41, 25 December 2010 (UTC)
      • Thanks for clearing that up. Sorry for misleading you! blushing TheFSAviator ( TC ) 21:39, 25 December 2010 (UTC)
        • No problem. I'll give an explanation in the future, Erpert. Mr. Granger (talk) 22:30, 25 December 2010 (UTC)

Could you not remove valid speedy delete tags? 暴鯉龍 is not a feasible search term and was only made by an individual who has made questionable edits concerning the topic. That and "article is 'Storm Dragon Carp' in Chinese" is not a reason to keep the redirect.—Ryūlóng (竜龙) 04:43, 26 December 2010 (UTC)

The Good Shepherd "Stellar cast"[edit]

In the info box for this article, under "Starring" there is a list of 10 stars of the film world, each one of which has unquestionably been a star of the film world in his or her own right for a good few years now. As you did not remove these from the infobox, I fail to see how it can be non-neutral to call this a stellar cast. Jodosma (talk) 17:09, 10 February 2013 (UTC)

  • "Stellar" seemed like kind of a WP:PEACOCK word to me... Could we rephrase it as "with a supporting cast including many well-known film stars", or something like that? Mr. Granger (talk) 17:17, 10 February 2013 (UTC)


Hi, and thanks for your work on the English Wikipedia. Just a short note to point out that we don’t normally link:

  • dates
  • years
  • commonly known geographical terms (including well-known country-names), and
  • common terms you’d look up in a dictionary (unless significantly technical).

Thanks and my best wishes.

Nice catch, sorry about that I have no idea why I did this edit! - Letsbefiends (talk) 08:35, 7 January 2014 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of List of arthropod alien species[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article List of arthropod alien species has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

unsourced, non notable concept

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. -- TRPoD aka The Red Pen of Doom 17:36, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

Do you has another solution? Please don't to reckless.

The reference also has been added, and you removed it too...ADHZ07111989 (talk) 20:35, 27 March 2014 (UTC)

Your edit duplicated the entire contents of the page, creating two copies of the page, one after the other. That is why I undid it. If you want to add a reference, feel free, but please don't wreak havoc on the page in the process. —Mr. Granger (talk · contribs) 20:37, 27 March 2014 (UTC)

Ok then I will try harder, and improve it soon again. Thank's friend...ADHZ07111989 (talk) 20:45, 27 March 2014 (UTC)

Clara Bow[edit]

I have reverted your edits to this article, because you made an excessive number of deletions to the article without first discussing them on the article's talk page. Please take a moment to read WP:BRD, and follow the proscription there not to restore your changes, but to instead discuss them on the talk page. If and when you have a consensus from the editors there, then you can restore the changes, or whatever changes are agreed on. In the meantime, please leave the article in the status quo ante. Thanks, BMK (talk) 21:03, 12 April 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the advice. I'm not really interested in a debate, though, so I'll just let you deal with the article as you see fit. Cheers! —Mr. Granger (talk · contribs) 21:07, 12 April 2014 (UTC)
