Disambiguation link notification for June 16[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited John J. Pettus, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Charles Clark (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Wouldn't it have been easier to do a mass nomination? BOZ (talk) 00:00, 17 June 2014 (UTC)

I hear you, no worries.  :) BOZ (talk) 02:27, 17 June 2014 (UTC)

Poor form or unreasonable expectations?[edit]

Hello Ricky81682. Id like to ask a question regarding your recent deletion of {{WPRedirect}}. I would have thought it standard practice to remove all transclusions prior to deletion to circumvent leaving redlinks on the transcluded pages. Are my expectations unreasonably high or do you agree it is poor form to delete a template without reviewing "what links here"? I removed the transclusions shortly after the deletion, but feel the better practice would have removed them first. Am I wrong in this regard?—John Cline (talk) 21:52, 18 June 2014 (UTC)

Removing image from Michael O'Hare[edit]

Hi, you stated: "no fair use for non-free image on a living person", but he died nearly two years ago. Is re-adding appropriate or is it not allowed for deceased persons as well? Per WP:NFCI: Pictures of deceased persons, in articles about that person, provided that ever obtaining a free close substitute is not reasonably likely. Jarkeld (talk) 19:55, 19 June 2014 (UTC)

@Jarkeld: You are correct but the image File:B5 sinclair.jpg still needs an NFCC tag for usage on that page. I've reverted the edit based on that (next time, you could have done that and then commented to me) and added the rationale. -- Ricky81682 (talk) 10:55, 23 June 2014 (UTC)

Re: Talk:LoveGame/GA2 MfD[edit]

I closed the MfD because the User:IndianBio allowed me to continue this GAR since I calmed down with apology (he responded positively). We're both happy now. I did not give out an explanation because I was busy with the GAR. I didn't say I started the GAR because of my dislike of pop music. I created the GAR actually because I found poor English and dead links. }IMr*|(60nna)I{ 05:02, 30 June 2014 (UTC)

Did you just pwn another user’s sandbox?[edit]

I reverted your edits. Did not expect such behavior from an admin. � (talk) 11:10, 30 June 2014 (UTC)

@Ï¿½: User_talk:Johnuniq#User_talk:Johnuniq.2Fsandbox2. Did it occur to you to ask either of us? -- Ricky81682 (talk) 14:36, 30 June 2014 (UTC)
And see Template_talk:Geographic_reference#Obsolete_reference for the rationale (the 37k articles use year 2000 census data and we needed to determine the subset to start on updating them for 2010 data). I think that's preferable in my userspace than someone else's. -- Ricky81682 (talk) 14:40, 30 June 2014 (UTC)
I don't think I've ever encountered the editor who reverted your move, and they have not communicated with me, so let's just sort this out. I believe I have complied with WP:CWW by copying the wanted revision of User:Johnuniq/sandbox2 to User:Ricky81682/sandbox/GR. I then edited the latter to include a permalink to the full list, if it is ever wanted. I removed the {{trout}} from the above as it not approriate, particularly given that you and I had discussed the issue, and I think this is now resolved. Johnuniq (talk) 02:16, 4 July 2014 (UTC)
Agreed. I think all parties can now move on. I just hope not to see it reverted again since I don't know why it was done. -- Ricky81682 (talk) 02:48, 4 July 2014 (UTC)


Sorry for dragging you into this drama. I didn't realize that the IP user would obsess over you so much. There's an open SPI case, if you're interested. NinjaRobotPirate (talk) 09:00, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

I'd suggest an RfC. Otherwise, I expect nothing different than the nastiness that followed me trying to get Template:Infobox element to be coded back into the articles (see this one, same arguments on both sides going on a decade, and I don't even want to get into the attacks at WP:ANI); certain WikiProjects take their walled gardens very seriously. -- Ricky81682 (talk) 04:35, 10 July 2014 (UTC)

Response to acceptance of unblock request[edit]

Thank you very much for having accepted my unblock request! I'll keep my promise not to engage in the kind of behaviour that led to the block.Mondolkiri1 (talk) 23:56, 17 July 2014 (UTC)

I believe you will. There's plenty of stuff about the articles to argue about lol. Just try to change topics away from that kind of material if it gets too heated. I know what you were talking about, it just didn't belong there. -- Ricky81682 (talk) 00:02, 18 July 2014 (UTC)
