Welcome!

Hello, Ttwaring, Welcome to Wikipedia!
I hope you like working here and want to continue. If you need help on how to name new articles, look at the Guide to layout, and for help on formatting the pages visit the Manual of Style. If you need general help, look at Help and the FAQ, and if you can't find your answer there, check the Village pump (for Wikipedia related questions) or the Reference Desk (for general questions). There's still more help at the Tutorial and the Policy Library. Also, don't forget to visit the Community Portal — and if you have any more questions after that, feel free to post them on my New-Users' Talk Page.
Additional tips:
Here are some extra tips to help you get around Wikipedia:
  • If you want to play around with your new Wiki skills, try the Sandbox.
  • Click on the Edit button on a page, and look at how other editors did what they did.
  • You can sign your name using three tildes, like this: ~~~. If you use four, you can add a datestamp too. Always sign comments on Talk pages, never sign Articles.
  • You might want to add yourself to the New User Log
  • If your first language isn't English, try Wikipedia:Contributing to articles outside your native language
  • Full details on Wikipedia style can be found in the Manual of Style.
Happy editing!

Renamed London Underground stations[edit]

Thanks for spotting the grammatical mistakes, all 8 of them. I would have checked through the article properly once completed and would have spotted those mistakes anyway. Thanks for your help though. It saved me some time. Are you fairly new to Wikipedia? Please reply on my talk page. Greaterlondoner

typos are typos[edit]

re your recent edits at Che Guevara: the edit summary stated "fixed typos". a typo is a minor slip of the finger or brain, and few of those were fixed in your sweep. many small changes (not necessarily corrections) were made, some of which were opinionated calls that, according to wikipedia guidelines, should have been left in the style of the original contributors (e.g., spaces around emdashes). such changes can provoke conflict unnecessarily, simply over matters of taste; in effect, you're trying to enforce a style you're comfortable with, but you do so by removing something somebody else was equally comfortable with, with no clear winner. and the first emdash removal was questionable, in my opinion. in any case, i encourage you to leave accurate edit summaries, whatever you decide to change.

Point taken. I will avoid changing that kind of thing in the future. I counted four style changes, four typos fixed (one of which fixed a link) and one other fixed link.Ttwaring 12:30, 3 September 2005 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Hi there! I'd like to express my thanks for reverting vandalism to my user page yesterday, so thanks! ;-) Happy editing. SoLando (Talk) 09:20, 17 May 2006 (UTC)

Suffragan Bishops Act 1534[edit]

Hi. I left it as bare Perth because I'm not at all sure that Perth, Scotland is what's meant: why would the C of E have a bishop in Scotland? And why would it be the only town in Scotland listed? I looked around for other copies of the list (there's one in Tracts for the Times) and either this entry was emended to Penrith, which is a reasonable guess except that Penrith already appears in the list, or Pereth, which doesn't seem to be the name of anything anywhere. Very mysterious. The Wednesday Island 01:33, 20 August 2006 (UTC)

Eden Montana hoaxes[edit]

Thanks! All the sock accounts are now blocked and the anon IP has a final warning. NawlinWiki 15:34, 11 October 2007 (UTC)

EmmaButton[edit]

I'm not exactly sure what it is you are asking me to do. seresin | wasn't he just...? 00:34, 10 March 2008 (UTC)

Oh, okay. WP:SSP would be the place to go, methinks. I'm completely clueless when it comes to sockhunting, so that's pretty much all the direction I can give you. Sorry. seresin | wasn't he just...? 00:41, 10 March 2008 (UTC)

What words mean in Spanish[edit]

I really don't give a **** what it means because I like your translations of Spanish language or any other language stuff, anyhow, right? Ericthebrainiac (talk) 19:21, 20 May 2008 (UTC)

Thanks, Brother[edit]

Thanks, bro. Ericthebrainiac (talk) 17:42, 9 September 2008 (UTC)

Islas Canarias = Canary Islands[edit]

The link from the Spanish article that links to the English articles regards the denomination of the place from different (language-related) perspectives. However, the name in Spanish makes mention of neither posession or of islands. If the telescope was named Gran Telescopio de las Islas Canarias, then the correct translation would be "Great Telescope of the Canary Islands." However, such is not the case. The term "Canarias" in Spanish is directly translated as "Canaries" in English. If you can find an English source (Newspaper would probably be easiest and most reliable) that supports a specific terminology in English, feel free to edit the article and reference your changes. However, if you cannot find such source, a direct-to-English translation remains the best option rather than attempting to distort the Spanish meaning in order to make it "sound good" in English.--$%MarshalN20%$ (talk) 00:14, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

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) 01:29, 18 June 2010 (UTC)

glassdoor.com[edit]

I'm not sure what you're getting at. There may be many reasons why a site would no longer display content--fear of litigation, for instance. HuffPo and Reuters are reliable sources, so a lack of continued display by primary source seems no issue. Fleetham (talk) 19:21, 5 February 2011 (UTC)

Request for help[edit]

Hi, I don't know if you're someone I should be appealing to, but I have a problem with the Lanix page. User:Foxxygrandpa added a section on 3d TVs that is not supported by the citations provided. All of the cites are in Spanish and if you look at a translated example here, which purports to support the claim that Lanix is working in cooperation with the National Autonomous University of Mexico, you'll see it makes no mention of Lanix. None of the citations do. I've tried to talk to Foxxygrandpa on his user page but he just ignores me. I tried to delete his edits, but he just reverts them. Please help Fleetham (talk) 17:15, 10 February 2011 (UTC)

Sorry![edit]

Thanks for catching my mistake. And I've kept the Canada bit in but added some explanation. I will provide better edit summaries and actually check sources before reverting in the future. Fleetham (talk) 22:44, 25 July 2011 (UTC)

Plumpy'nut[edit]

I was really more concerned with the edit's mention that you could eat "a packet" at home. I think it's something like a 2 month regimen to cure malnutrition. Someone has edited for POV since my last edit and removed the word "tasty" from the lead. Do you think the page continues to be ad-like or can we now take down that top tag? Fleetham (talk) 20:09, 25 September 2011 (UTC)

lvl 3[edit]

In regards to your recent revert: while I don't disagree that the issue has been discussed at length, I believe the outcome of that discussion was my well couched assertion that the material did not contravene Wikipedia policy to which you did not reply. No consensus has been reached on keeping the material off the page, and I encourage you to go back and review my arguments. Fleetham (talk) 18:47, 8 December 2011 (UTC)

A cup of tea for you![edit]

Meissen-teacup pinkrose01.jpg for reminding me to clean up ;) , my apologies for the trouble and regards ÐℬigXЯaɣ 12:50, 25 March 2012 (UTC)

Thanks! I was actually drinking a cup of tea when I opened this page :-) - Ttwaring (talk) 21:36, 25 March 2012 (UTC)

well that was from me , you know Face-smile.svg-- ÐℬigXЯaɣ 01:40, 26 March 2012 (UTC)

Warning IP vandal[edit]

Hello. Regarding the recent revert you made: 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. Silvrous Talk 15:20, 2 October 2012 (UTC)

Improving TV pages[edit]

Thank you for your recent comments, I understand you points about the quotations being accurate, ( trying to type and keep track of what is being written is sometime a bit of a mishmash) I will be double checking over this coming week any new quotations I have added to this and few other pages.--Crazyseiko (talk) 13:29, 4 March 2013 (UTC)

Thanks! - Ttwaring (talk) 16:54, 4 March 2013 (UTC)

Sorry~[edit]

Hi, thank you for pointing out my mistake in editting level 3 communications. I am not a robot, so I wasn't mechanically putting in stuff without reading it, and I can make mistake, too. Generally speaking, I would read the sentence I put in, but I'm sorry that yesterday I was accidently doing something else while adding the sentence, maybe that's why I neglected where it conflicts. I would treat it more seriously in the future. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Lvzhpchristina (talkcontribs) 00:13, 11 September 2013 (UTC)
