Your sensibility is persuasive![edit]

Wouldn't you know that my unambiguous invitation to "take the bait" would instead be met by the kind of reason I can not pretend to disagree with. I removed the collapsed section which includes your very good reply. Doing so is arguably a violation of wp:tpg, though I think wp:iar trumps this example. I won't revert anyone, or you, if it is reverted back in, though I hope it is not. Thank you for demonstrating such a good editing example in answering my bad one. I was not expecting that at all which really made it that much more effective. Sincerely—John Cline (talk) 12:42, 10 February 2014 (UTC)

  • John, I don't mind both the replies being gone from the conversation, so I think we're both in the good for now. Thanks for the removal, and enjoy your day :) TheOriginalSoni (talk) 14:59, 10 February 2014 (UTC)

i need to send proof of pic on kenpolitical how do i do. I can take a pic with no one there. I took the pic myself and listed it after the Chairman said he may use it as a press photo. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Kenpolitical (talkcontribs) 19:08, 14 February 2014 (UTC)

  • Kenpolitical, if you took the picture yourself, then upload it and select "Own work" when you upload the file using Wikipedia:File Upload Wizard.

Las Cruces, New Mexico article[edit]

Thank you Soni for adding in some of the references that were accidentally removed from the Las Cruces, New Mexico article. They add significant credibility to the writing. I appreciate it! --Lizb07 (talk) 04:25, 26 February 2014 (UTC)

I would like to thank you for informing me as to why my section was reverted.

Curious re: an article marked for deletion[edit]

Good evening,

It has been awhile since I have been here. School and family life has been a killer this year. However, I am trying to get some editors involved in a discussion regarding an article marked for deletion. As I was the creator of the article I would like the recruits to be people other than those that I have actually had contact with and not really sure how do do this but thought that if I could tell a few editors and then they could tell other editors that way it wouldn't be a biased set of people getting involved. Anyhow if you might want to take part the discussion is located at Patrick article marked for deletion It has been relisted twice due to lack of participation and any input would be appreciated. Please place "talkback" on my talk page as it should notify so i know to come back should you have any advice or questions. Thanks Tattoodwaitress (talk) 01:58, 11 March 2014 (UTC)

Yeah, about those reverts...[edit]

I tend to use the desktop version of Wikipedia on my touchscreen mobile device every once in a while. Let's just say that "rollback" button is my worst foe; it happens to get "clicked" accidentally all too often. I'm almost to a point where I'm thinking of asking for that right to be revoked, given the fact that I know the "other" way to perform "rollbacks" that doesn't require the rollback function. Steel1943 (talk) 02:05, 12 March 2014 (UTC)

  • Steel1943 I can understand how that happens. Given there are other work-arounds to deal with it, maybe you could ask someone's help to turn off the rollback when you use the watchlist. Soni (talk) (Previously TheOriginalSoni) 13:06, 12 March 2014 (UTC)

Mentorship GDrive[edit]

Hi, I am having some trouble forwarding the email to get it to work. What do you think about having an IRC chat sometime? Thanks, Matty.007 11:17, 22 March 2014 (UTC)

I will be online tonight (22nd March, say about 5 pm UTC) in #wikipedia-en-help (nick=tos) as well as on gmail, and there will be a meeting with I-jethrobot in another 3 hours. Will that time be fine for you? If not, you can mail me, or we can fix some other time when we can be online. Soni (talk) (Previously TheOriginalSoni) 13:22, 22 March 2014 (UTC)
5 UTC is 5 PM GMT isn't it? Anyway, if it is 5 or 6 PM GMT that should be fine, but I can never be 100% sure, so sorry if I'm not there straight away. Thanks, Matty.007 13:35, 22 March 2014 (UTC)
  • Matty, YGM. Please also check the IRC channel or the mail whenever you log in :) Soni (talk) (Previously TheOriginalSoni) 20:28, 23 March 2014 (UTC)
  • Got the email, but I can't do IRC right now, just stopping on WP for the day. I may be able to come on tomorrow, but sometime in the week. I'll also have a look at the channel. Thanks, Matty.007 20:38, 23 March 2014 (UTC)

How to get a random copyediting page[edit]

Hey Soni. Sorry for the wait. As promised, here's an easy way to continue to get a random article to recommend as needing copyediting: Special:RandomInCategory/All articles needing copy edit. That link should give you a different article every time you click it, and it can work in templates etc. as well. Steven Walling (WMF) • talk 20:48, 27 March 2014 (UTC)

Invite[edit]

Hi Soni, I saw you had written an invite, I had given this note to Huon who ignored it and The Worm That Turned who removed it (just so yuo can remove them from people to message, unless you are significantly in their good books). Thanks, Matty.007 15:58, 2 April 2014 (UTC)

Matty, Soni, I removed the request because I'm afraid I just don't like the idea. I'm certainly not going to stand in its way, because if the end product is what you're hoping for, then that is a positive. I just don't believe that money is needed for the project. I think it's a very sad state of affairs if we have to pay for people to be nice to newbies, to pay to encourage new editors. It might be that we do, but at that point the community in Wikipedia is no more. It's mostly me grumbling philosophically, but I thought you might want to know why I'm keeping out of it. WormTT(talk) 12:26, 3 April 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for the explanation, I can see where you are coming from. I think the official stance is that we are re-imbursing people for their time-5 hours each week is a fair bit if you're working, but I can see the issue. I am personally not sure if we should do that or not, but I think we should pay the project leader and designer, positions which are jobs. Thanks again for the rationale, Matty.007 13:33, 3 April 2014 (UTC)

Looking for a suggestion to clear the issue "proposed that this article be deleted"[edit]

Hi Soni, I try to create an article in wikipedia but, I able to get the notification "proposed that this article be deleted" in my article page. I am not able to understand how could I fix that issue. So, please guide me how can I fix it and request you to inform me what are the mistakes I have committed in that article.--Sinaamasa (talk) 13:24, 3 April 2014 (UTC)

Neighborhoods and feeder schools of Lamar High School are necessary sections[edit]

Hi Soni! I noticed you removed the neighborhoods and feeder schools of Lamar High School saying they were unnecessary.

In America neighborhoods are assigned to high schools. This is important because being assigned to a better high school can increase property values, and neighborhoods have identities based on their schools.

Thanks, WhisperToMe (talk) 12:37, 8 April 2014 (UTC)

Hi Soni, with regards to sending messages to Teahouse hosts, have we gotten going yet, or should we get going soon? Thanks, Matty.007 19:08, 13 April 2014 (UTC)

Your draft article, Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Ken Nolan[edit]

Hello Soni. It has been over six months since you last edited your WP:AFC draft article submission, entitled "Ken Nolan".

The page will shortly be deleted. If you plan on editing the page to address the issues raised when it was declined and resubmit it, simply edit the submission and remove the {{db-afc}} or {{db-g13}} code. Please note that Articles for Creation is not for indefinite hosting of material deemed unsuitable for the encyclopedia mainspace.

If your submission has already been deleted by the time you get there, and you want to retrieve it, copy this code: {{subst:Refund/G13|Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Ken Nolan}}, paste it in the edit box at this link, click "Save page", and an administrator will in most cases undelete the submission.

Thanks for your submission to Wikipedia, and happy editing. Rankersbo (talk) 17:13, 26 April 2014 (UTC)

The edit counter link on your user page[edit]

While following links from my talk page archives, I happened to look at your user page and notice that the link to X!'s edit counter there is currently broken. You're linking to the count for TheOriginalSoni, which the counter doesn't seem to recognize is actually you; therefore, it claims that you have an edit count of 0. Just wanted to bring this to your attention. APerson (talk!) 19:42, 18 July 2014 (UTC)
