User boxes[edit]

Please remove those hundreds of user boxes. I'm sure most other wikipedians would agree that you have overdone it. I advise that use have just a few user boxes instead. (Somewhere around 2 or 3 is good.) --Matthewr2 1 01:22, 31 March 2006 (UTC)

No one cares how many userboxes I have.

I noticed you had a user box that said that you were drug free, and another that said you are a coffee drinker. You must have needed that coffee to say awake to find all those user boxes. Good thing you don't use drugs though! Good thing indeed. Niubrad 10:38, 28 November 2006 (UTC)

I've decided that my excessive use of userboxes is a protest against the fact that some people think user boxes shouldn't be allowed. Who cares? They're just boxes. Nick Warren 01:06, 30 November 2006 (UTC)

Poll[edit]

I have an idea. I'm starting a poll. If you're a Wikipedian and you come across my page, tell me if you care how many userboxes I have. I mean, it is my userpage and putting up lots of userboxes won't hurt anyone so whats the big deal?Nick Warren

  • Since you're asking, I don't care how many you have, but I didn't find them terribly useful (difficult to read due to garish colour schemes, small text, and dense array of them). --Christopher Thomas 06:26, 6 April 2006 (UTC)

Userbox added![edit]

I added a userbox to your userpage. I hope you like it! (P.S. You are awesome!) Matthewr2 1 06:18, 14 April 2006 (UTC)

Matt - You're creeping me out.....Nick Warren 12:54, 14 April 2006 (UTC)

lol, sorry Matthewr2 1 23:51, 14 April 2006 (UTC)

License tagging for Image:Tuttle Creek Lake-space.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Tuttle Creek Lake-space.jpg. Wikipedia gets thousands of images uploaded every day, and in order to verify that the images can be legally used on Wikipedia, the source and copyright status must be indicated. Images need to have an image tag applied to the image description page indicating the copyright status of the image. This uniform and easy-to-understand method of indicating the license status allows potential re-users of the images to know what they are allowed to do with the images.

For more information on using images, see the following pages:

This is an automated notice by OrphanBot. If you need help on selecting a tag to use, or in adding the tag to the image description, feel free to post a message at Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. 06:07, 19 October 2006 (UTC)

QBASIC Page - Trivia Section[edit]

Greetings Nick ...

Regarding your edits to the TRIVIA section of the QBASIC page, the previously displayed information about QBASIC's compatibility with versions of MS-DOS prior to 5.00 was my lone contribution to the QBASIC page. More than that, anyone in possession of computers running MS-DOS from version 3.20 (if not lower) thru version 4.01/4.10 can easily verify such compatibilty.

For your reference »» A previous QBASIC page with my trivia information.

Incidentally, I agree that the overall QBASIC page did look a little out of sorts!

Something Else - The Wikipedia link for PowerBASIC should be included in the "See Also" section.

Thanx-A-Lot, Frank Fgf2007 18:50, 19 April 2007 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Zero GTR[edit]

Nuvola apps important yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Zero GTR, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached. Do you want to opt out of receiving this notice? Marasmusine (talk) 08:55, 11 May 2008 (UTC)

Oh hey, no problem there! I was about to suggest that it be deleted anyway, it's not very notable and I was a little too enthusiastic about that game (I used to know the guy who made it). it all turned out to be a flop anyway. Thanks! Nick Warren (talk) 02:52, 23 July 2008 (UTC)
