Thanks for your edits[edit]

Thanks for your microscopic touch ups on the Spotted lanternfly ! I must say I am always surprised, what drives people onto WP:pages, only a comedian like you could buzz over to this exciting page... I jumped over to your user page and like that your edits are handmade, I looked at your Gone with the wind vandalistic collections and laughed my butt off! I have to say some really good ones are still in the raw - must have been a hard decision which ones to use. keep at it and I hope our paths will cross again. I am not in Chicago though. --Wuerzele (talk) 01:15, 6 January 2015 (UTC)

Thank you for noticing, Wuerzele, and I hope my edit didn't conflict with any changes you were composing. I got my start on Wikipedia by correcting misspellings, and I've continued to embrace a gnomish approach to things, with occasional forays into more substantial revisions. I'm glad you enjoyed the Vandal's History blog. I expect it to come off of hiatus sometime this year. It is a lot of work to do the sifting, since as you note, there is an abundance of vandalism out there. Thank you for putting in the effort to create new Wiki articles and content. I hope your endeavors in the public health field are not too difficult. As a relative of a PHS veteran, I know it can be a thankless and occasionally bizarre task.

Thank you for the recognition. It does feel like a big milestone. I still haven't figured out a good way to celebrate. Nick Number (talk) 18:43, 21 February 2015 (UTC)


Hey,why you reported me ? I'm just editing page and you reported me for nothing. And stop removing my editing on the pages.— Preceding unsigned comment added by Admen1 (talk) 18:11, 13 March 2015 (UTC)

@Admen1: Hello. I'm glad you are now willing to engage in dialog. To address your questions, it might be simplest if you reviewed the Talk page entries which you summarily deleted - [1][2][3][4][5][6]. In summary, adding punctuation where it doesn't belong and blanking Talk pages are not constructive behaviors. If you require assistance in making a more positive contribution to Wikipedia, I'd recommend following the Teahouse link on your Talk page. Nick Number (talk) 18:51, 13 March 2015 (UTC)
Okay,sorry for deleting your Talk pages,but on some pages there need to have a period on the sentence,this '.' ,because can't finish the sentence without period.And for that i editing the pages.— Preceding unsigned comment added by Admen1 (talk) 19:02, 13 March 2015 (UTC)
@Admen1: It is true that complete sentences should end in punctuation such as periods. However, entries on disambiguation pages and external links sections are sentence fragments, which do not have punctuation at the end. Nick Number (talk) 19:12, 13 March 2015 (UTC)
Okay,Nick Number.I thinked that on external links and disambiguation pages need at the end to have period. Sorry again and thanks for telling this ;)— Preceding unsigned comment added by Admen1 (talk) 19:46, 13 March 2015 (UTC)
@Admen1: Ok. Thank you again for being willing to discuss it. Nick Number (talk) 20:16, 13 March 2015 (UTC)

net worth[edit]

@Nick Number: please stop changing the net worth figure as you did here and here. I am going to take the Net worth off, so this does not escalate further. (peace) thank you, and goodbye — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mansourblake11 (talk) 18:45, 14 March 2015 (UTC)

@Mansourblake11: You have yet to offer any reasoning for your changes. Nick Number (talk) 23:52, 14 March 2015 (UTC)

A Dobos torte for you![edit]

Dobos cake (Gerbeaud Confectionery Budapest Hungary).jpg 7&6=thirteen () has given you a Dobos Torte to enjoy! Seven layers of fun because you deserve it.

To give a Dobos Torte and spread the WikiLove, just place {{subst:Dobos Torte}} on someone else's talkpage, whether it be someone you have had disagreements with in the past or a good friend.

Thanks, though I don't know what precipitated this. Nick Number (talk) 18:05, 19 March 2015 (UTC)

Thanks a lot for your thorough edits at Mekong Expedition of 1866-1868[edit]

Hi Mate!
Thanks for going through the whole text - great job. I am a minor contributor with little routine. Still - occasionally - i do get myself to read articles about form, syntax, tagging and so on. I noticed you re-edited the quotes in particular, which had presented in italics....Anyhow - could you be so kind and drop me some links on these issues - i have actually no idea about the form, where and when to use bold and italic text etc.
All the best
Wikirictor (talk) 01:02, 2 April 2015 (UTC)

@Wikirictor: No problem. Thank you for going through all the hard work to create the article.
The relevant guidelines are under the Text Formatting page and the Quotations and Block quotations sections of the Wikipedia Manual of Style.
It is a lot of information to take in, but these are minor points and are easily corrected. Nick Number (talk) 17:24, 2 April 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for fixing my misspellings in Criticism of Rede Globo[edit]

It is my first article, so I'm still new at this. Thanks for the pointers to WP:DATESNO and WP:TYPO, I had no idea these guidelines existed! Picardin (talk) 02:59, 10 April 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for the help!
Thank you for translating the article, and also for the cookie (I have a weakness for chocolate chips). Wikipedia has a lot of stylistic elements which can be difficult to pick up, but tend to become a matter of habit over time. Nick Number (talk) 15:01, 10 April 2015 (UTC)


Hi Nick, This is Rak. Can you tell me, or point me to, the correct way to include the information in "RAK" that you removed?

Thank you.RakDixit (talk) 20:27, 10 April 2015 (UTC)

@RakDixit: Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. There are a few issues with your edit here.
  1. Disambiguation pages exist to aid people in finding existing Wikipedia articles. They should not contain external links. An article should be created first.
  2. Before an article is created about a person, the subject needs to meet notability requirements for biographies.
  3. If you are Mr. Dixit, Wikipedia guidelines strongly discourage adding information about yourself.
In short, if your intent is purely to promote Mr. Dixit's business, Wikipedia is not an appropriate place to do so. If Mr. Dixit meets the aforementioned notability guidelines, then someone not directly affiliated with him should create an article, being sure to cite reliable sources, and taking care to avoid promotional language. Nick Number (talk) 20:45, 10 April 2015 (UTC)
@Nick Number: Thank you for the information, Nick. I'll study the noted sources and get better at this. RakDixit (talk) 22:48, 10 April 2015 (UTC)

Keeping Wikipedia Expanding Not Shrinking[edit]

Hello User:Nick_Number sorry for disturbing you. The reason I am writing you is we all love Wikipedia and we want it expanding. However there is a discussion going on to delete a notable game article because of biased opinions. I saw that you edited this article: Big_Huggin' and let it stay for further expansion, update and keep growing Wikipedia. But I am also totally agree with you to let articles stay for improvements and expand Wikipedia. So I believe you are a neutral, professional, objective and who believes in expanding Wikipedia not shrinking it type of person. So I would like you to check out this discussion Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/MonsterMMORPG_(2nd_nomination) and make your comment based on references it has. References are here Talk:MonsterMMORPG. Please feel free to delete my message to you after you read it. Thank you very much have a nice day. (talk) 14:39, 15 April 2015 (UTC)
