Cheers[edit]

Ted, you are a sight for sore eyes!

I have pasted in my new proposal at WP:DAB (here), I'd love to hear your opinions, either here on the talk page there.

William really buggered things up (as you noticed and first pointed out, it took me a couple of days to realise and jump into action). The new proposal (or a variant) will hopefully fix up the mess of dab page templates and categories.

Unfortunatly William can't understand what he's done wrong and now wants me to leave Wikipedia until I graduate (which is just over a year). I'm trying to sort that out on his talk page.

William has been constantly attacking you (and now teenagers apparently, lucky I had a birthday a couple of months ago :) ), if you would like to take up dispute resolution against him let me know - he is out of line and heavily disrupting talk pages (as well as the damage he's already done in implementing his new system for dab pages). Nice to hear from you.--Commander Keane 17:03, 24 January 2006 (UTC)


Re: Recent Changes Camp[edit]

I'm glad that I had the chance to meet you too. I hope RCC returns to Portland next year. -- llywrch 04:23, 17 February 2006 (UTC)


WikiIndex message[edit]

Thank you for the message.

As I've visited various Wikis, as well as various message boards and social-interaction websites (e.g. slashdot, etc.), I have been registering my user name BlankVerse, mostly as a preemptive strike. I've been surprised that in most cases the user name has been available. My biggest failure so far is that I haven't been able to find a good free blog website where the user name was available (it's also unavailable as .com, .net, .org, and .info domain names, so I'd have to settle for blankverse.us or something similar).

At least for any MediaWiki-based Wiki, I've usually entered a link back to my Wikipedia user page and looked to see what sort of welcome template they had (if they had one). When they haven't had a welcome template, I've always added the same slightly snarky note in the edit summary. You're the first person who has ever responded to that note.

Since WikiIndex was not in the interwiki map at Meta, I've put in a request for it to be added (see meta:Talk:Interwiki map#New to Add).

If I end up spending more time at WikiIndex, I'll probably help create a welcome template. On the other hand, I have been dissatisfied with the Wikipedia welcome message, but I haven't yet figured out what I would do if I created my own version of the welcome message (other than it definitely will not be a colored box like so many of the personalized welcome messages).

New WikiProject Illinois Collaboration Division[edit]

Hey, saw you were a participant in the Illinois WikiProject. I thought I would let you know that there is a new Collaboration Division up for the project. The goal of the division is to select an article or articles for improvement to Good article standard or higher. There is a simple nomination process, which you can check out on the division subpage, to make sure each candidate for collaboration has enough interested editors. This is a good way to get a lot of articles to a quality status quickly. Please consider participating. More details can be seen at the division subpage. IvoShandor 11:23, 10 March 2007 (UTC)

Re: consensus poll on Universal Wiki Edit button[edit]

Have you seen this? http://www.aboutus.org/UniversalWikiEditButton

and this? http://www.aboutus.org/Portal:ConsensusPolls

There's active work happening right now with and on Consensus Polls. Thought you might be interested after your work on this last fall here at wikipedia. peace, Tedernst | talk

Yeah, I'd spotted some discussion of that on the mailing lists or somewhere. That sort of thing seems like an ideal situation for consensus polling to be applied, although it doesn't seem clear from that page exactly which design is being considered. I might go participate if I have some time. --bainer (talk) 06:40, 15 June 2007 (UTC)

Bot approved: dabbing help needed[edit]

Hi there. Fritz bot has been approved at Wikipedia:Bots/Requests for approval/FritzpollBot for filling in a possible 1.8 million articles on settlements across the world. Now dabbing needs to be done for links which aren't sorted as the bot will bypass any blue links. and I need as many people as possible to help me with Wikipedia:WikiProject Missing encyclopedic articles/Places to prepare for the bot. If you could tackle a page or two everything counts as it will be hard to do it alone. PLease also pass on the message to anybody else who you may think might be willing to help. Thankyou ♦Blofeld of SPECTRE♦ $1,000,000? 12:22, 30 May 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of City CarShare[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on City CarShare requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a company or corporation, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for companies and corporations.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the 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. Lastly, please note that if the article does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that a copy be emailed to you. — dαlus Contribs /Improve 22:36, 9 November 2008 (UTC)

Depression (mood)[edit]

Hi. I notice you were involved in structuring the Wikipedia disambiguation page, Depression. The article, Depression (mood) has undergone considerable change over the last 6 months or so. I am defending the present form, while advocating for an additional section, on the talk page. I'm not sure how you'll respond to its present form, so please don't take this as canvassing. I'd appreciate your thoughts on its structure and content, if you have the time and interest. Cheers. --Anthonyhcole (talk) 15:44, 23 April 2011 (UTC)
