A barnstar for you![edit]

Brilliant Idea Barnstar Hires.png The Brilliant Idea Barnstar
Dear "The Banner",

first, a "Brilliant Idea Barnstar" for your work on investigating and documenting the history of Michelin Star restaurants in the Netherlands. I have already written you some time ago since your data work was the start for a research project at the University of Southern Denmark. Togehter with a colleague, I want hereby to analyse, how creative local amenities such as Michelin-Star restaurants can support local and regional development. Of course, for scientific research, data quality is very important. Thus, I would be very glad to get in contact with you to discuss this issue on your super wikipedia article. This would also give us the opportunity to "acknowledge" your intense data collection efforts so far. I fully understand that Wikipedia is a source for anonymous documentation, however, maybe you are interested to see, how your input is actually valuable for scientific research. If so, just leave a message at my wikipedia-page (Researchguy11), maybe this then allows to exchange Emails. Many thanks and all the best! Researchguy11 (talk) 17:09, 30 November 2014 (UTC)

Personally, I think your praise is over the top. I do what I think I have to do and try to stay away from promotion (what is a challenge on its own sometimes). If you have a questionnaire, you can send it through the tools (Email this user) on the left hand side of this screen. And I doubt if I can really help you, but let us give it a shot.

Edit warring? Why?[edit]

Why would you rather edit war than to discuss? You have been reverted and even though there is a discussion, you failed to gain any support. One more revert and you will most likely be blocked. JOJ Hutton 14:53, 2 December 2014 (UTC)

Stop joking and editwarring and join the discussion on the talkpage. The Banner talk 14:55, 2 December 2014 (UTC)

Achille Delaere[edit]

Hello, You helped me with this article in the English Wikipedia earlier this fall. I had a Dutch translation done of it, and when I put it into the Dutch Wikipedia, it turned out to be a marginal translation. I'm not sure, but it looks like they've deleted it. Is there any chance you could take a look at it? I noticed that you are fluent in Dutch. Nicola Mitchell (talk) 15:45, 3 December 2014 (UTC)

The article was nominated for deletion due to the very poor quality of the translation. Unfortunately, the nominator is a kind of a troll regarding to religious subjects. Going against him only gives you a lot of trouble and a stalker. Better wait till somebody else picks up the challenge of translating the article, as I am not doing it. The Banner talk 16:52, 3 December 2014 (UTC)

Okay, thanks for the tip. I'll do as you suggest. Is there a chance you could read through a brief biographical article in my: Gebruiker:Nicola Mitchell/Kladblok2 ? Unfortunately, I had it done by the same translator at the same time as the Delaere one. This one though has no religious content. Can you tell me if the translation is any good? Also, what would you suggest? Nicola Mitchell (talk) 18:21, 3 December 2014 (UTC)

In fact, the translation is just as hopeless. The Banner talk 23:22, 3 December 2014 (UTC)
I have both articles put on the Hotlist, in the hope someone will picks this up for translation. The Banner talk 23:35, 3 December 2014 (UTC)

Okay, thanks! I was curious. I thought it might just be the religious content that threw the translator with that Delaere article. Nicola Mitchell (talk) 02:11, 4 December 2014 (UTC)

RfC at Talk:Kosovo War[edit]

Hi,
Thanks for starting the RfC. It's a very positive step. However, I have one slight niggle: The header asks "Should we keep the section?" but the rest of the text makes it clear that the current text is problematic. In which case, it's not clear what "Support" and "Oppose" mean - they could go in either direction. Also, the original content of the section was very different to the current content - I don't want to overcomplicate things, but maybe removing the whole section isn't the only alternative to the current version. I'm reluctant to edit the structure of your RfC, but would you consider clarifying? Also, feel free to move my comment from "Support" to "Oppose" or whatever other section heading is most appropriate if you do change anything. bobrayner (talk) 15:09, 6 December 2014 (UTC)

Present version better? The Banner talk 15:32, 6 December 2014 (UTC)
Groovy. Nice work. bobrayner (talk) 16:02, 6 December 2014 (UTC)

Conflict of interest[edit]

you can't just go on deleting materials and subjects which i devote to wikipedia (hours and hours). you even deleted a lot from Muzaffarpur Junction railway station and now from Sapt Kranti Express. You have no right to call it a fan page. just i need a proper reason why you deleted those. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Tanmay Tarun (talkcontribs) 02:57, 10 December 2014 (UTC)

I think I just did! You have added a lot of unsourced and irrelevant info to the article that makes it look like a personal webpage of a railway fan instead of a neutral description fitting into an encyclopaedia. The Banner talk 12:07, 10 December 2014 (UTC)

De Leest[edit]

Why would you 'repair' the link into the broken one? – Editør (talk) 12:11, 11 December 2014 (UTC)

Because you messed up even more than it was. The Banner talk 12:25, 11 December 2014 (UTC)
If you didn't like the style, you could have just changed that, I have no problem with that. – Editør (talk) 12:32, 11 December 2014 (UTC)

Conflict of ideas[edit]

you can't just go on deleting contents. i contributed my 8 valuable hours for creating Sapt Kranti Express. you have no right to delete it. or it will be a pleasure to leave wikipedia. Tanmay Tarun (talk) You are a waste........ BULLSHIT! you deleted all my contributions.

What you add to those articles is irrelevant information or plain fancruft. The Banner talk 11:35, 14 December 2014 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

Stub Barnstar.png The Stub Barnstar
Thanks for creating the new Gravenmolen article, and for improving Wikipedia's coverage of notable restaurants that have received Michelin stars. NorthAmerica1000 02:53, 20 December 2014 (UTC)
Thank you! Much appreciated! The Banner talk 11:10, 20 December 2014 (UTC)
In fact, the honour is double appreciated. At the moment, they are a bit nitpicking on me on the Dutch Wikipedia about my Michelin articles and the navigation template I created for it. Very frustrating, as it is a rather WP:IDONTLIKEIT-discussion. The Banner talk 12:25, 20 December 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for reverting, but...[edit]

I've thanked you for your revert of Easter Rising. However I should mention that it does not appear to be WP:Vandalism, but WP:Bold changes, which you are probably right to revert per WP:BRD, but strictly speaking you should probably be adding a section on the Talk page inviting whoever made them to discuss his/her changes there, perhaps also indicating there that at least some of the changes will quite likely eventually turn out to be legitimate.Tlhslobus (talk) 07:45, 20 December 2014 (UTC)

(Though I should add that I don't blame you for not wanting to get into such a time-consuming discussion - I certainly wouldn't want to do so either). Tlhslobus (talk) 07:48, 20 December 2014 (UTC)

That is why I used the question marks, to mark that it in my opinion was coming close. The Banner talk 11:06, 20 December 2014 (UTC)

Heeding to Edit War tag[edit]

Hi User:The Banner. With regard to edit war tag you have awarded me, I agree with the reverting rules. For quality improvement of the article St.Joseph's Indian Composite PU College, instead of removing content recklessly, its wiser enough to talk and discuss the issues which the article faces. Only such certain unnecessary parts can be removed by the creator,rather than the creator again go on developing a whole new page. You are very much aware of the plight of a new page developer on Wikipedia R__R (talk) 20:09, 27 December 2014 (UTC)}}

Wrong, everybody can edit an article. The creator has no special rights at all. The Banner talk 20:16, 27 December 2014 (UTC)
