Sorry, I accidentally clicked on "Rollback" and reverted your reversion, and you had reverted before I had had a chance to correct my mistake. Titoxd(?!?) 01:06, 26 October 2005 (UTC)

T.S. Eliot - Formal Recognition[edit]

Not a war! Helpful co-operation towards a mutual goal, I am sure. However regards the use of the "serial comma", see [1]. There is no Wiki consensus on this. I feel its presence, where not necessary to avoid ambiguity, is an unnecessary punctuation presence, but I think there's far bigger things to address in this (and other) articles. There's nothing about The Hollow Men (apart from in Popular Recognition) or Aerial poems for a start!! Tyrenius 20:37, 11 February 2006 (UTC)

I know, but I still don't like serial commas! Tyrenius 21:07, 11 February 2006 (UTC)

You're one of the best... Tyrenius 21:55, 11 February 2006 (UTC)

Please don't forget to warn vandals![edit]


Just a quick heads-up: When you revert vandalism, please don't forget to go to the vandal's talk page and give them the appropriate warning. Not only does the vandal then know that we're on to him/her, but it also allows other editors to assess a vandal's past conduct by a glance at his/her talk page.

Thanks! :)

Thanks for the catch on that. I was going through correcting 'apparati' to 'apparatus', and ran into it in a phrasing that was unfamiliar to me. -- Kazrak 15:28, 28 May 2006 (UTC)

Solitude Trilogy[edit]

Thanks for making the voice-number correction, and adding some info to, the article above. Are you sure it's five voices in the Idea of North? I know it's at least four - three men and a woman - but not counting Gould, I don't know about the fifth. Outriggr 23:54, 17 August 2006 (UTC)


I noticed in your edit to Iliad#Synopsis you removed the links to the two articles that exist on particular passages of the books. I've reverted your edit as I think it is important that these links remain in the synopsis section as they point users to more detailed information on those passages. Best wishes.Madmedea 12:43, 15 April 2007 (UTC)

Fair enough, but I think the reason for highlighting them in a different section is that they are currently the only passages from the Iliad that have their own article pages. I'm going to put an {{expand-section}} tag in to encourage people to add new sub-articles and remove the "key" from the section title.Madmedea 17:10, 15 April 2007 (UTC)

Richard Liang?[edit]

Sorry, but I was wondering if you were Richard Liang. If so, it is very good to see you (it's Eric Brown). If not, sorry for the interruption. Homagetocatalonia 18:00, 7 May 2007 (UTC)


Hi Quadalpha, thanks for the greeting. It's nice to see someone working on the Iliad article; I suppose I should chip in... --Akhilleus (talk) 22:48, 2 July 2008 (UTC)


Hmm, seems you were right after all, the source fails RS. Sorry if I talked down to you last night, but this section has our hearts just broken. I'll leave it with Modernist to see if s/he can find another source, but if not the Dali section will have to go. Aaargh! ;) Ceoil 20:19, 18 July 2008 (UTC)

Modernist is well pissed off at the moment, and I can't blame him/her tbh; this is very dissapointing. Oh well thats life - we have agreed to cut and come back to it later when we are both less green eyed and emotionally involved. All told I'm glad you stuck with it, so no hard feelings from me either. ( Ceoil sláinte 23:39, 18 July 2008 (UTC)
If you feel like throwing a few quid at me to rewrite and resouce the section, nobody would need to know ;) Just us two. Srlsly. ( Ceoil sláinte 00:13, 19 July 2008 (UTC)


Hi Quad! You made an edit to Hesiod that has baffled me and I have commented on it at the talk page there. I intend reverting your edit unless you can justify it. McZeus (talk) 11:25, 18 October 2010 (UTC)

Images of Murasaki Shikibu Diary Emaki[edit]

Hi! I'd be very happy if you could help with this request. Particularly with the image which will soon be on wikipedia's mainpage as DYK. Thanks. bamse (talk) 09:40, 18 December 2011 (UTC)

Thanks a lot for this high quality image. Will add descriptions and categorize it. Any chance to get more images of the emaki from the same source? If yes, you could also send them by email to: [my username on wikipedia] + "." + "wikipedia" at gmail. bamse (talk) 13:47, 19 December 2011 (UTC)
As for the image you uploaded, do you know something about its source? I am a bit confused because it says here that the object is from 1503 (original emaki is from mid 13th century) and because it has a "fold" which seems to be absent in here or here. Perhaps it is a reproduction on a folding screen!? bamse (talk) 14:08, 19 December 2011 (UTC)

Newco Rangers[edit]

Hi Quadalpha. I read your comment at the deletion discussion of Newco Rangers, and am intrigued. Are you basically saying that you believe there should be one article for the club (old and new in the same article), but then a second article which just covers the liquidation and reformation process? —WFC— 17:34, 15 July 2012 (UTC)

Hi there! Yes, that is what I was suggesting. As other have since pointed out, the new 'club', in the amorphous sociological sense that we mean when we talk about a football club, is very much continuous with the old, despite the high-profile financial hijinks going on at the moment. To put it differently, when people 'support a club', it's not any particular company or other corporate entity that they support, and hence the subject of an encyclopaedia entry should be about the institution that is named by 'Rangers FC', rather than the secondary entities behind it. Or to put it in still another way, there is no reason for the formalistic legal or commercial representation of a particular thing to have precedence, which is why I very much disagree with one of the other comments there ("Strong Keep. I am terribly sorry to all of you mergers and deleters but the basic plain fact is that when a company goes into liquidation it no longer exists. Irrespective of the size of Rangers F.C., it no longer exists even on paper. It's records, trophies and history ended when the club folded."), where the last quoted sentence is quite simply false. There are many things which do not exist 'even on paper', yet still manage to exist in real life. --Quadalpha (talk) 04:01, 18 July 2012 (UTC)

And I've just seen your comment on the AFD page, and I quite agree. Perhaps what we need here is a more nuanced definition of what is a 'club.' --Quadalpha (talk) 04:14, 18 July 2012 (UTC)
