Please consider adding LynxInAntarctica.jpg to commons[edit]

Hi. Would you please consider adding LynxInAntarctica.jpg to the Wikimedia Commons and the category Westland Lynx there? That way all the wikipedia-projects can benefit from your photo and more photos of this subject can be found at the same place. Kind regards Hebster (talk) 16:45, 9 December 2007 (UTC)

GR 11[edit]

Hello Matt- I got your e-mail and tried to reply, but it bounced back. Let me know if you want the error details. Regarding the GR 11 question, take a look here on my talk page: User_talk:Eric#GR11_in_France, and note the separate sections for France and Spain on the GR footpath article. -Eric talk 14:29, 17 July 2008 (UTC)

Disability on the internet[edit]

Hey Mtpaley, I am conducting social science research that is funded by the ESRC and I wonder whether you would like to contribute by answering a few simple questions? I am interested in the role of the Internet in dialogue surrounding disability, and I see that you have contributed towards the article on Down's syndrome. I feel that you will be able to make a valuable contribution towards this research, the results of which are to be published in a peer-reviewed journal. The questions should be relatively straightforward and will be sent in stages, by email. Feel free to contact me (either on- or off-the-record) should you have any questions, queries or comments about the 'e-interview' and/or broader research process. My contact details can be found on my Wikipedia userpage. Faithfully, Nicholas (talk) 14:02, 9 March 2009 (UTC)

Hey, I was reading your usertalk and found this. I am the one wanting the change on the ignition timing page, and I assumed you were just being insensitive. I apologize for that, after seeing this, but I still support the edits I made. Thanks, Mike — Preceding unsigned comment added by 99.28.251.208 (talk) 23:18, 6 April 2013 (UTC)

No I was not 'just being insensitive' just practical but I still support the reversions I made. You should not try to remove all references to a word that has acquired a negative connotation. There certainly are cases where such references should be removed but where a word has a perfectly valid and currently used meaning it should be documented as it currently is. I should also admit to feeling a little guilty about your comments above because my contributions to the 'Down's syndrome' page were very dull and not worthy of the original request from Nicholas Cimini.

SuggestBot picks articles in a number of ways based on other articles you've edited, including straight text similarity, following wikilinks, and matching your editing patterns against those of other Wikipedians. It tries to recommend only articles that other Wikipedians have marked as needing work. Your contributions make Wikipedia better -- thanks for helping.

If you have feedback on how to make SuggestBot better, please tell me on SuggestBot's talk page. Thanks from Nettrom (talk), SuggestBot's caretaker.

P.S. You received these suggestions because your name was listed on the SuggestBot request page. If this was in error, sorry about the confusion. -- SuggestBot (talk) 20:51, 20 January 2011 (UTC)

August 2011[edit]

Hello, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia! I noticed that you recently added commentary to an article, Shire (Middle-earth)‎. While Wikipedia welcomes editors' opinions on an article and how it could be changed, these comments are more appropriate for the article's accompanying talk page. If you post your comments there, other editors working on the same article will notice and respond to them, and your comments will not disrupt the flow of the article. However, keep in mind that even on the talk page of an article, you should limit your discussion to improving the article. Article talk pages are not the place to discuss opinions of the subject of articles, nor are such pages a forum. Thank you. Carl Sixsmith (talk) 05:18, 4 August 2011 (UTC)

Nomination of Mobile Phones SAR List for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Mobile Phones SAR List is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Mobile Phones SAR List until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. Mtpaley (talk) 21:24, 19 March 2013 (UTC)

Your recent edits[edit]

Information.svg Hello and welcome to Wikipedia. When you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion, please be sure to sign your posts. There are two ways to do this. Either:

  1. Add four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment; or
  2. With the cursor positioned at the end of your comment, click on the signature button (Insert-signature.png or Button sig.png) located above the edit window.

This will automatically insert a signature with your username or IP address and the time you posted the comment. This information is necessary to allow other editors to easily see who wrote what and when.

Thank you. --SineBot (talk) 23:52, 22 March 2013 (UTC)

Gottlieb Priber will live on![edit]

Hey, I feel like it is notable, and so I added a reference where all the information in the article comes from and I gave it some extra context etc. Buenos dias Dudanotak (talk) 04:35, 13 April 2013 (UTC)

Stub tag on Blue film[edit]

Please don't add stub tags to articles like this which already have subject-specific stub templates, it just wastes other editors' time. And please also note that {{stub}} goes at the end of an article, not the top - see WP:ORDER. Thanks. PamD 08:49, 15 April 2013 (UTC)

Spoilers[edit]

Reason I changed the Iwan Rheon article was to avoid any spoilers that people who aren't familiar with the source material may find. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 99.243.22.144 (talk) 21:09, 28 April 2013 (UTC)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Spoiler - policy is spoilers stay and readers beware. Mtpaley (talk) 21:29, 28 April 2013 (UTC)

Deletion review for Mobile Phones SAR List[edit]

An editor has asked for a deletion review of Mobile Phones SAR List. Because you closed the deletion discussion for this page, speedily deleted it, or otherwise were interested in the page, you might want to participate in the deletion review. Tokyogirl79 (。◕‿◕。) 06:50, 20 June 2013 (UTC)

File:TwinOtterInAntarctica.jpg[edit]

Hi, Your image File:TwinOtterInAntarctica.jpg has been nominated for deletion as it does not have a license template. I cannot add it (and my images are from an earlier era at Halley - all slides). If you are happy, will you edit it on Commons. Any problem, reply here. Thanks. Finavon (talk) 22:28, 2 September 2013 (UTC)

Let it die. It has been orphaned for ages and it is not a especially good scan of the slide. Mtpaley (talk) 23:18, 4 September 2013 (UTC):

Thanks but a shame. The same now applies to File:PublicTMB.jpg
PublicTMB is a live page so hopefully I have applied a valid license. Can you confirm that this is OK. 19:04, 8 September 2013 (UTC)

Disruption by Kahastok[edit]

Information icon Hello. There is currently a discussion at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents regarding an issue with which you may have been involved. Thank you.

Formalising the status of WP:FALKLANDSUNITS[edit]

The page WP:FALKLANDSUNITS has not yet been formally adopted as an offical guideline. I have created a proposal to regularise the position. Please feel free to comment Wikipedia talk:WikiProject South America/Falkland Islands work group/Units#Proposal for acceptance as a formal guideline. If the proposal is accepted, then the page will indeed be part of Wikipedia policy, otherwise it will be tagged a "failed proposal". Either way the uncertainty that has dogged this page for the last three years will be resolved. This message is being sent to every editor of good standing who has contributed here or here.

Why did you reinstate the vandalism on L.H.O.O.Q.?[edit]

It's a strange piece of vandalism that got introduced for the first time just a few days ago. It's obviously wrong, as anybody can see. So why did you reinstate it? Did you even think about it for half a second? -- 64.131.244.143 (talk) 02:18, 20 October 2013 (UTC)
