Thank you[edit]

Thank you for cleaning up the vandalism on my user page by the runescape freak.

Adoption[edit]

Hello, Squids and Chips! I see that you have expressed an interest in being adopted by an experienced editor. I accept your request, being an experienced editor myself. Whether you want to learn about wiki markup, find something to do, or just talk to somebody, I'm the one you can talk to - just leave a message on my talk page. Good luck with Wikipedia! --Daniel Olsen 04:03, 9 December 2006 (UTC)

Hey, yo![edit]

Please cease and desist from making changes in the Super Bowl XXVII Halftime Contreversy pages. I am trying to keep all titles with the first letter of each word capitalized in each subsection as per Wikipedia standards. Otherwise, I will report you for vandalism. Thank you.

?[edit]

Youve just linked a queensland island to a west australian list? It might help to look at an atlas - its bit like george bush talking about border relations between canada and mexico.... SatuSuro 02:19, 28 February 2007 (UTC)

Sorry. Ironically, I have a map in front of me. I get left and right mixed up as much as I do East and West. Squids_and_Chips 02:31, 28 February 2007 (UTC)

Dont apologise one of ouradmins cleaned it up - and no problems if I am offered either/or problems i can actually find it harder to decide compared to three or four options - so we're human (what a relief) SatuSuro 02:34, 28 February 2007 (UTC)

Stub sorting[edit]

Hello Squids and Chips,

I noticed you marked an article as a stub using the {{stub}} template. Did you know that there are thousands of stub types that you can use to clarify what type of stub the article is? Properly categorizing stubs is important to the Wikipedia community because it helps various WikiProjects to identify articles that need expansion.

You can view the full list of stub types at WP:STUBS.

If you have questions about stub sorting, don't hesitate to ask! There is a wealth of stub information on the stub sorting WikiProject, and hundreds of stub sorters. Thanks! — jmorgan (talk) 05:46, 1 March 2007 (UTC)

squids and chips, can i be adopted by you?--Ratónbat 00:34, 22 March 2007 (UTC) can we be friends and ill do some things in club penguin and you correct my spelling?--Ratónbat 22:46, 22 March 2007 (UTC)

California Cups[edit]

Your suggestion to merge the California Cup races is interesting but I have two problems with it. One, I don't know enough about wiki code to do such a thing, and two, I can't see a good way to do such a thing and still have the winners of each race clearly defined. If you can do the first task, and can explain how the second might work...I have no problem with the idea.Ki Longfellow 01:20, 28 March 2007 (UTC)

Thank you S&C (no doubt somewhere in Blighty, the seaside my guess), I'll have a look at the instructions and see if I can make sense of them. Ki Longfellow 13:04, 29 March 2007 (UTC)

RE: List of swamps in American Samoa[edit]

Chinglish[edit]

The neutrality isn't really independent of the factual inaccuracy; it's just factually inaccurate in particularly negative ways. If it was a biography of a living person, this is the sort of thing we'd automatically remove as potentially libelous. --Ptcamn 18:37, 28 April 2007 (UTC)

Vandalism Warning[edit]

Your vandalism warning on User_talk:204.100.184.254 is useless and rather pointless. That IP belongs to an entire school district, with many thousands of students and staff. Please take appropriate actions to permanently block anonymous editing by this IP, thankyou. 204.100.184.254 17:46, 22 August 2007 (UTC)

The seventh day[edit]

A tag has been placed on The seventh day, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a redirect to a nonexistent page. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content.

Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself. If you plan to expand the article, you can request that administrators wait a while for you to add contextual material. To do this, affix the template {{hangon}} to the page and state your intention on the article's talk page. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this.

Speedy deletion of 70.241.x.x Range[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Please do not make personal attacks. Wikipedia has a strict policy against personal attacks. Attack pages and images are not tolerated by Wikipedia and are speedily deleted. Users who continue to create or repost such pages and images in violation of our biographies of living persons policy will be blocked from editing Wikipedia. Thank you.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the article (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the article's talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. -- WebHamster 00:57, 19 November 2007 (UTC)

AfD nomination of Dude[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

An editor has nominated Dude, an article on which you have worked or that you created, for deletion. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also "What Wikipedia is not").

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Dude and please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 01:00, 10 March 2008 (UTC)

Actinide → Actinoid page move[edit]

Hi, thank you for your comments, I didn't realise there was a move tab. The article Lanthanide has also been moved recently by a different user, I'm not sure what technique they used, maybe you should investigate. Cheers Jdrewitt (talk) 09:15, 30 April 2008 (UTC)

maths rating template[edit]

As I was doing some cleanup, I noticed you tagged a few articles with the maths rating template some time back. Here are a few things you may not know about this template:

  • There is already a list of mathematics articles that does not require talk page tags. The only purpose of the tags is to assign quality, importance, and field ratings to articles.
  • When you add a maths rating template, please fill in all three parameters (field, class, importance) right away. Otherwise, someone else has to go back and do it.
  • The only articles that should have the frequentlyviewed parameter set are the ones listed at Wikipedia:WikiProject Mathematics/Wikipedia 1.0/Frequently viewed/List.

Arthur eps[edit]

Hi Sq&C--First off, the table subpage looks great! I'm boggled to death that you claim to be able to recreate all the Arthur plots for seasons 1-8 from MEMORY--that's just WAAAAY too doggone much TV! :) But if you can do it, more power to ya! While I'm here, I noticed you were trying to do....something....here[1] Whatever it was, it doesn't seem to have worked--I look at the page, and I don't see anything that looks like what you were trying for. What were you after, there? Maybe I can give you some help with it. Same with the interwiki link for...was that Welsh you were trying to link to? It doesn't look like it showed up as you planned. Anyhow--good job with the layout on that table, and I'll be glad to see what you do with the episodes. Thanks! Gladys J Cortez 00:22, 16 May 2008 (UTC)

I'm assuming you're also referring to the category I added which shows up at the bottom of the page in the category box (which only appears if there are categories). The interwiki link shows up in the languages box (which only appears if there are interwiki links) under the toolbox in the side bar. I think that was Welsh. It appears to be a new page on that Wikipedia.
I've watched reruns of the episodes too many times and some of them I can't help but watch again. I'm still messing around with the table. Although it makes for better readability, it lowers editability. --Squids'and'Chips 00:44, 16 May 2008 (UTC)
Yes, that was what I was referring to, though obviously something went VERY wrong with the link to the diff I was trying to post. (I really, REALLY need to brush up on my wiki-markup.) So now, at least I understand what you were doing with the category. (At first, it looked to me like you were linking the article to itself, which...yeah, I don't know what I was thinking either. I was at work, what can I say.) I don't see your Welsh link, though...is that supposed to appear on the page, or is it just a reference marker for something? (As you can see, I've done no interwiki linking myself!) The table looks great--and yeah, those are SOOOOOOoooo much fun to edit, aren't they? Supposedly there's a WYSIWYG editor gadget for WP, where you can edit in plaintext like in MS Word, and copy-paste things like tables directly into articles without having to fuss around with the spacing and formatting. I think I'm going to try it, if I can remember its name. On the subject of the table--I might be able to flesh out the episode descriptions a bit, as well. I've watched my fair share of Arthur myself, sad to say...:) Talk to you soon....Gladys J Cortez 03:16, 16 May 2008 (UTC)

public school[edit]

Your edit to "Beaumont College" is ethnocentric: "public school" does not have the same meaning in England as in the USA. I have corrected in this case: but you may wish to avoid in future. Diomedea Exulans (talk) 14:13, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

SSDP uses ports 2869 and 1900[edit]

Dear Squids and Chips,

as per Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 832017 , aka "Service overview and network port requirements for the Windows Server system", SSDP uses ports 2869 and 1900. 2869 is for SSDP event notification, while 1900 is for SSDP other uses.

There's even an SSDP legacy event notification, at port 5000.

All the best,

You are now a Reviewer[edit]

Wikipedia Reviewer.svg

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, is currently undergoing a two-month trial scheduled to end 15 August 2010.

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under pending changes. Pending changes is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial. The list of articles with pending changes awaiting review is located at Special:OldReviewedPages.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles (talk) 17:56, 19 June 2010 (UTC)

June 2010[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute to Wikipedia, at least one of your recent edits, such as the one you made to Morning Raga, did not appear to be constructive and has been reverted or removed. Please use the sandbox for any test edits you would like to make, and read the welcome page to learn more about contributing constructively to this encyclopedia. The reverted edit can be found here. Thank you. Mr. R00t Talk 00:37, 22 June 2010 (UTC)

How about I just put a cap over some of the buttons on my keyboard so that I don't accidentally press them. Sorry for reverting you as it was a mistake. When I realized I had done that I was in the midst of figuring out how long ago someone added vandalism to something. By the time I was done with that I had forgotten about you. Sorry. (The reason I templated you was because I was using Igloo which automatically templates someone that you rollback.) Mr. R00t Talk 00:46, 22 June 2010 (UTC)
Oh, so it's your fault that his edits are in red? Well, I blame you for my accidental reversion of him. :) ~~ Hi878 (Come yell at me!) 01:25, 28 June 2010 (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, guidelines for use at WP:MINOR). 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 all users will still be able to manually mark their edits as being minor in the usual way.

For well-established users such as yourself there is a workaround available involving custom JavaScript. 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) 20:24, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of List of Cyberchase cybersites[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article List of Cyberchase cybersites has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

In-universe fancruft. No sources.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Corpus cavernosum of clitoris, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Ramus (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.

Joule's law[edit]

Your redirect hacking was pretty circular, and essentially recreated the state of long ago by a copy/paste move from an old version of Joule's laws to Joule's law. But a disambig with a redlink is not nearly as useful as a link to an article that covers both laws, which is why it had evolved to that. If you see a better way to do it, some discussion would be in order. I reverted your changes. Dicklyon (talk) 22:46, 3 May 2013 (UTC)

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 02:23, 18 November 2013 (UTC)

You included the List of entertainers who have lived in or near Chicago on your User:Squids and Chips/Orphan pages. I've recently started and AFD for it and thought you should know. Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of entertainers who have lived in or near Chicago

May 2014 disambig contest: let's do it again![edit]

Greetings fellow disambiguator! Remember back in February when we made history by clearing the board for the first time ever, for the monthly disambiguation contest? Let's do it again in May! I personally will be aiming to lead the board next month, but for anyone who thinks they can put in a better effort, I will give a $10 Amazon gift card to any editor who scores more disambiguation points in May. Also, I will be setting up a one-day contest later in the month, and will try to set up more prizes and other ways to make this a fun and productive month. Cheers! bd2412 T 18:50, 28 April 2014 (UTC)

I see you haven't edited in a while - you are missed! We sure could use your deft disambiguation skills, these days. bd2412 T 19:08, 15 May 2014 (UTC)
