Re: Dude, stop speedy deleting stuff![edit]

Re your message: Do you have a complaint about a specific article that I deleted or just a general complaint? If it is a specific article, I would be happy to discuss why it was deleted with you. If you are making a general complaint, then my answer is "No, I won't stop speedy deleting stuff." -- Gogo Dodo (talk) 16:47, 29 July 2010 (UTC)

Re your message: Usually an admin that deletes an article will not leave a deletion warning because most of the time articles are deleted after another editor has tagged them for deletion and left the appropriate warning. I will leave deletion notices if I delete an article that was not tagged by another editor or if the tagging editor didn't leave a notice. In this particular case, the article creator was notified. As for the article itself, I checked the deleted contents and there was no claim about being the first of anything and even if there were, being the first at something isn't necessarily a claim to notability. There was very little in the content of the article in terms of notability. It explains who made the comic, that it is made with Lego, when it started, its publishing schedule, themes it covers, a really long run on sentence about the characters, and finally that the comic went on hiatus for awhile. Unfortunately, it reads like many of the other web comic articles that are clearly non-notable. The only potential claim to notability may be its two nominations for the Web Cartoonists' Choice Awards (which wasn't mentioned in the article and I only noticed it now), but since the comic did not win either time it was nominated, it might not meet the notability guidelines. There are no references to any articles about the comic or even the typical "comic has N readers/page views" that are a common claim towards notability (not that reader counts or page views make ones notability). -- Gogo Dodo (talk) 21:29, 30 July 2010 (UTC)
I thought about the article some more and if you want me to restore it to your user space so that you can get it up to the necessary notability standards, I would be happy to do so for you. -- Gogo Dodo (talk) 07:12, 31 July 2010 (UTC)

January 2014[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Triangular routing may have broken the syntax by modifying 4 "()"s and 1 "<>"s. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

Thanks, BracketBot (talk) 05:06, 24 January 2014 (UTC)

{{USRD}}[edit]

Hey! I appreciate your notice of my partial conversion of {{USRD}} to {{WPBannerMeta}}, but please don't get ahead of yourself. I don't have any plans to further develop this port until the Lua version of WPBannerMeta is complete. It was more of a simple proof-of-concept test. Thanks anyway. -happy5214 17:17, 23 February 2014 (UTC)
