Machinima.com page[edit]

Hello! Thank you for tidying up some of my over-linking on the page. I was just about to go through the page myself and noticed you'd beaten me to it! Much appreciated DanielleForrester1991 (talk) 11:08, 17 February 2013 (UTC)

Passbook (Application)[edit]

Hey Rwalker, what do you mean by "Help needed: Ticket using Dab solver" ? I have a little time to help out but not much. Venetian42 (talk) 06:56, 8 December 2012 (UTC)

This means that the link to ticket is ambiguous. Click on the disambiguation needed link to fix it. 24.26.130.179 (talk) 16:17, 8 December 2012 (UTC)

Southend on Sea[edit]

Hi - I had to undo your changes to Southend on Sea page. I am not sure why you have deleted the entry I added about IDEA13. It's a non profit network for culture in Southend and should be listed on this page so anyone interested to find out about events in Southend can visit the link. At the moment it's the most functional events website for local events. Thank you — Preceding unsigned comment added by Vividi0 (talkcontribs) 11:01, 13 February 2012 (UTC)


Hello![edit]

Hi, Rwalker.

Thanks for fixing the Beatdown Set blunder that I made.

WP:Logical quotation[edit]

Hello, Rwalker. I saw you on the Serial killer article, and felt that you may not know about WP:Logical quotation. Logical quotation has been debated time and time again at Wikipedia:Manual of Style, but we generally should follow it unless it is changed. Flyer22 (talk) 23:50, 15 December 2009 (UTC)

I'm used to AP style but I'll refrain from making edits against the MoS from here on out. Rwalker (talk) 16:41, 11 January 2010 (UTC)

Avatar (2009 film) article, the unobtainium vs. unobtanium spelling[edit]

This is being discussed on the talk page. You might want to comment on it there. Flyer22 (talk) 14:43, 22 December 2009 (UTC)

Point taken. Though, I wish Mr. Cameron would have come up with a unique name for the mineral. Rwalker (talk) 16:41, 11 January 2010 (UTC)

Overlinking[edit]

Hi Rwalker,

I had to undo your edits to the article on Assassin's Creed II, because of overlinking. Try to avoid overlinking. Try to avoid overlinking, see WP:OVERLINK for details. Thanks, and happy editing! --Soetermans | drop me a line | what I'd do now? 19:39, 28 December 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads-up. I'll try not to link things that aren't needed. Rwalker (talk) 16:41, 11 January 2010 (UTC)

Community page[edit]

Start a new page concerning specific communities in cities, then insert a "see also" link at the top of the section article where it is appropriate.

"Columbus is home to a large GLBT community (estimated to be over 65,000 strong, was rated as one of the best cities in the country for gays and lesbians to live, and also as the most underrated gay city in the country. Columbus hosts over 25 gay bars and clubs, and its annual Pride celebrations draw 100,000 visitors. Columbus also has one of the highest per capita donations to GLBT political causes in the country.

The community is centered on The Short North, with several gay friendly establishments located on, or within a short distance of High St. However, the gay population is not exclusively concentrated in this neighborhood, but is also found in adjacent neighborhoods such as the Italian and Victorian Villages. High concentrations of GLBT residents are also found in Clintonville, German Village and Old Towne East."

Wiki Historian N OH (talk) 19:22, 9 January 2010 (UTC)

I didn't add the section, I only fixed the references. Rwalker (talk) 16:41, 11 January 2010 (UTC)

British English[edit]

Please note, First and Second World War are the official terms in British English (as used in the Official Histories, so per WP:ENGVAR these terms should not be changed to World War I or II. David Underdown (talk) 16:06, 19 February 2010 (UTC)

I wasn't aware. However, the links need to point to the World War I and World War II pages instead of redirects.
No they don't, please look at WP:R2D where the redirect is from a valid alternative name it is better to use the redirect as it makes editing the page easier and less cluttered. Redirects should only be replaced if they are from incorrect spellings etc. David Underdown (talk) 16:13, 19 February 2010 (UTC)
So much to learn. Rwalker (talk) 16:20, 19 February 2010 (UTC)

List of people from Columbus, Ohio‎[edit]

I've been thinking about how to make this into one, sortable list table since I created it; that's why there are currently the redundant listings separated by career/field, by chronology, and alphabetically. The problem is we have no standardization of the career terminology. And where there are multiple entries for a parameter, as we'd have when one individual is notable in different fields, the sorting feature (to the best of my knowledge) would just sort by the first one listed. Any thoughts on how to make it work?

Another thought I had was to add in columns for the relationships the individuals had with the city; were they born there, did they grow up there, go to college there, do their notable work there... But again aside from maybe birthplace, these are difficult things to standardize. postdlf (talk) 17:31, 22 March 2010 (UTC)

Columbus, Ohio[edit]

Ok, I can see your point in your reversion, so even before it was reverted I added Sullivant's name to this section of the article requests. I am surprised he doesn't yet have an article here yet, though.   ArcAngel   (talk) ) 21:05, 14 April 2010 (UTC)


RWalker, I am trying to edit the list of nicknames for Columbus, Ohio. I am trying to remove "Cowtown" and "The Biggest Small Town in America" from the list.

"Cowtown" - This is not a nickname. This is an offensive slur. A major city like Columbus does not deserve to be called a cowtown.

"The Biggest Small Town in America" - In the 42 years I've lived here, I have never heard Columbus referred to as this. Plus, there is no verifiable reference associated with proposed nickname.

I am new to Wikipedia editing and would appreciate your help. Rider1968 (talk) 15:54, 11 August 2010 (UTC)

The fight to put Cowtown on the nickname list for Columbus has been raging for a while. See the talk page. It's hard to nail down because there are no hard and fast rules about nicknames; they are usually a shared social convention as opposed to an official nickname dictated by the government. This is the first I've seen Biggest Small Town. Both need verifiable references added or they can be removed.

Fluffernutter[edit]

Hello. I was very disappointed when I saw that you'd removed the "superfluous" fluffernutter pictures. When I first saw them and their caption, it gave me a very large chuckle, and since then has made my day multiple times. More seriously though, the page now looks dull to read, and I don't think the pictures were superfluous at all. They provided a well need break from plain text and, had I never seen a fluffernutter before (I have met many people who have never even heard of Fluff), I would have found it informative, aiding my sandwich recognizing skills immensely. I hope you do not find my comment too subjective, but I do believe those pictures are necessary for the health of wikipedia as a whole, and would appreciate it if you'd put them back up. Thank you for your consideration.

Encoding issues on Underfloor heating[edit]

This edit looks like an ordinary spelling change, but if you look at the bottom of the page, it has also broken the non-ASCII interwikis. Maybe your browser settings need fiddling with? Andy Dingley (talk) 19:44, 30 August 2010 (UTC)

Christian hip hop[edit]

You left a Multiple issues template on the Christian hip hop article. When completed it reads in part "This article has multiple issues. Please help improve it or discuss these issues on the talk page.". You didn't start the discussion on the talk page so I have no idea what your multiple issues with the article are. Please start the conversation there or remove the template. Thanks. I will not be following your talk page to respond to any concerns you have here. --Walter Görlitz (talk) 21:55, 30 August 2010 (UTC)

Hilliard, Ohio External Links[edit]

Hi Rwalker. I am not sure how to reach out to you - so my apologies if this is the wrong format (feel free to let me know how it would be appropriate). You edited Hilliard, Ohio's external link to CentralOhioEntrepreneurs.org - I would like to hear your thoughts about why you didn't think it was a relevant external link for the city of Hilliard. CentralOhioEntrepreneurs.org is a regional resource, and it includes resources relevant to Hilliard's small business community. CentralOhioEntrepreneurs.org is a resource for Hilliard and has links to small business resources available in Hilliard. Thanks, Amccollum (talk) 21:31, 3 March 2011 (UTC)

Welcome to Wikipedia! Linking to CentralOhioEntrepreneurs.org may be a resource for the region but not Hilliard specifically. Perhaps that link would be better placed on the Franklin County, Ohio page. However, seeing as you work for CentralOhioEntrepreneurs.org, it would be a conflict of interests to do so. Looking at your contributions, it looks as if you've already added it to many pages. I suggest you remove it to avoid the conflict. Rwalker (talk) 21:43, 3 March 2011 (UTC)

Thanks! And thank you for the link to the conflict of interest page -I'm going to review it & proceed as appropriate. I really appreciate your help. Amccollum (talk) 21:52, 3 March 2011 (UTC)

Notification: changes to "Mark my edits as minor by default" preference[edit]

Hello there. This is an automated message to tell you about the gradual phasing out of the preference entitled "Mark all edits minor by default", which you currently have (or very recently had) enabled.

On 13 March 2011, this preference was hidden from the user preferences screen as part of efforts to prevent its accidental misuse (consensus discussion). This had the effect of locking users in to their existing preference, which, in your case, was true. To complete the process, your preference will automatically be changed to false in the next few days. This does not require any intervention on your part and you will still be able to manually mark your edits as being minor in the usual way.

For established users such as yourself there is a workaround available involving custom JavaScript. With the script in place, you can continue with this functionality indefinitely (its use is governed by WP:MINOR). If you have any problems, feel free to drop me a note.

Thank you for your understanding and happy editing :) Editing on behalf of User:Jarry1250, LivingBot (talk) 18:53, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

November 2011[edit]

Hello. Regarding the recent revert you made to List of Tom Sawyer characters: you may already know about them, but you might find Wikipedia:Template messages/User talk namespace useful. After a revert, these can be placed on the user's talk page to let them know you considered their edit inappropriate, and also direct new users towards the sandbox. They can also be used to give a stern warning to a vandal when they've been previously warned. Thank you. Walter Görlitz (talk) 03:56, 6 November 2011 (UTC)

Social Reader[edit]

Hi Rwalker, firstly I'ld like to thank you for taking time to read and modify the page. As I'm not much experienced with Wiki things, I'ld like to stay in touch for guidance (if you allow).

now there are things I'ld like to ask you. 1) You have pointed out that article might contain Original Research but I've tried to include the data from actual sources. For instance, the dates I've mentioned for WaPo are the one stated by WoPo website, while the numbers are taken from their Social Reader App on Facebook, (and they are real-time, you can check). Same is with Guardian. So can you please help me understand which part do you think is creating problem?

2) You have added a link to Guardian Social Reader for Smartphones at very last in external links. I've already added this reference in the same list at No.3 stating Guardian Social Reader for Mobile. Should I delete the one added by me?

3) I only wanted to take the feeling that I'm the one who created Social Reader page on Wikipedia. That's why I published it with two. I'll be adding more info about the ones listed in other section, or any other notable addition to the list, time to time. And for that, I'ld request your help, to keep this page under your watch-list.

Romanesque architecture[edit]

Oh dear! it's 2 am in the land Downunder and I've forgotten what it was I called that frigging article! That article that you tried to tidy up a bit earlier! And I can't find the right John Harvey either! I thought he had an article, but maybe not.

Well, can I suggest that you don't waste you time on it at the minute because all the bottom half will be radically changed, and then I can invite you back to dot the eyes and put out the garbage. (No, hang on.... that's Gibson's job!) ....anyway, there is no point in copy-editting what I will probably delete.

I also have to rip through both articles adding the references.

I have the big challenge ahead, creating a section on Romanesque architecture in Eastern Europe virtually out of thin air, and if I don't get it right they will leave nasty messages on the talk page for the next five years.

So you play Angry Birds? I've beaten it soundly and now I'm bored! I was really much happier with Space Invaders but that was 30 years ago in the fish and chip shop on Australia Street.... (sigh!)

Hannibal lecter page.[edit]

Why did you change the lecter concept and creation? Where did you see lecter described by chiltern as a psycopath? in the books and films he is described as a sociopath.

If you look at what I changed in that edit, I didn't add the Sociopathy term, I simply added the dab tag that said it was an ambiguous link. Please exercise some due diligence before accusing people of actions. Rwalker (talk) 13:04, 1 March 2013 (UTC)

Azaria Chamberlain[edit]

I rolled back your edit, when what I intended to do was revert and leave an edit summary. Sorry!

The reason why I reverted was that there has been a fair bit of discussion about the fact that there is reference to Azaria Chamberlain in Buffy the Vampire Slayer. It is one of those situations where the primary source (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) is of itself published media. Reference either has or hasn't appeared in that media, and if it has appeared, then really no further reference is necessary, other than perhaps the name or number of the episode. Either way, it would be better to leave a [citation needed] tag, rather than simply delete something which is not the slightest bit contentious and can be supported by anyone who takes the trouble to check.

Disambiguation link fixing one-day contest[edit]

I have decided to put on a mini-contest within the November 2013 monthly disambiguation contest, on Saturday, November 23 (UTC). I will personally give a $20 Amazon.com gift card to the disambiguator who fixes the most links on that server-day (see the project page for details on scoring points). Since we are not geared up to do an automated count for that day, at 00:00, 23 November 2013 (UTC) (which is 7:00 PM on November 22, EST), I'll take a screenshot of the project page leaderboard. I will presume that anyone who is not already listed on the leaderboard has precisely nine edits. At 01:00, 24 November 2013 (UTC) (8:00 PM on November 23, EST), I'll take a screenshot of the leaderboard at that time (the extra hour is to give the board time to update), and I will determine from that who our winner is. I will credit links fixed by turning a WP:DABCONCEPT page into an article, but you'll have to let me know me that you did so. Here's to a fun contest. Note that according to the Daily Disambig, we currently have under 256,000 disambiguation links to be fixed. If everyone in the disambiguation link fixers category were to fix 500 links, we would have them all done - so aim high! Cheers! bd2412 T 02:32, 18 November 2013 (UTC)
