You added a link to an article on tape wire. I do not know what this is, but if the link is to survive, you need to create an article about it. Peterkingiron (talk) 15:34, 3 April 2008 (UTC)

I have checked the article on wire again. You have added a link to an (as yet) non-existent article. I can find no reference to any WP article tape wire. This appears in red to show that it is linking to nothing yet. As you may be aware, WP is subject to frequent vandalism, I was unsure whether what you came into that category or not, and so left it. To create your article, you need to go to the wire page and then click the link to tape wire. This will bring up a window where you can write your article. If you have in fact written one, it is failing to link. If you copy the exact title on to my talk page, I will investigate what has gone wrong. Peterkingiron (talk) 12:59, 4 April 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Reading With Rover[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Reading With Rover 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 page 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 page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you.

User page[edit]

You should create a user page. Having a redlink in your signature makes you look a bit like a fly by night anonymous user, which you aren't. Even if your user page says effectively nothing, it'd add a bit of respectability. Just my opinion. -Oreo Priest talk 16:56, 21 July 2009 (UTC)

Also, comments on specific articles should be on the article's talk page instead of a user's to keep the discussion more public. I've copied it to the talk page. Cheers, Oreo Priest talk 23:26, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

Grand Cru[edit]

Hi again. Just FYI, you can't just remove the deletion template to protest a deletion request. Please contribute to the deletion discussion at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Grand cru (food and drink). Oreo Priest talk 04:23, 30 August 2009 (UTC)

My mistake. This discussion won't be like before. Just write one or two lines, something like "Keep, [your rationale]". Alternatively, you could just write Keep per Oreo Priest if you agree with what I said. This is basically just to establish a consensus on whether the page stays or goes. So really, it's not so much a drawn-out discussion like before (which was no fun) but a one-line explanation of what you think. Cheers, Oreo Priest talk 05:26, 30 August 2009 (UTC)

Dynasty changeover question[edit]

See the article on Manetho's Aegyptiaca for a quick answer as to how ancient Egyptian history was originally arranged into dynasties.
For the most part, it comes down to families and the order of succession. There are a few known cases where a previously pharaoh was usurped or assassinated, but this was rare. At least one pharaoh died in battle, but the dynasty did not go when he did. Hope that helps! Captmondo (talk) 03:49, 24 February 2010 (UTC)


I didn't take the time to read everything you read. However important it may or may not be, it's basically not an article. You are free to improve it. As an example of what it takes to please the "watchers" see Heather Harmon and Stephanie Swift both "mine". If you need technical help editing I'll help if asked. - Stillwaterising (talk) 02:24, 1 March 2010 (UTC)

Castle FAR[edit]

Hi, I saw your user name in the Castle Discussion page. I have nominated the Castle page for Featured Article Review, because among other things, it is too exclusive and does not fulfill the criteria of a Featured Article. I invite you to share your opinion at Wikipedia:Featured article review/Castle/archive1. Boneyard90 (talk) 23:35, 13 December 2010 (UTC)

Five Pecks of Rice vs Yellow Turbans[edit]

Apologies for not getting back to you sooner, I only saw your comment on the talk page of the article today. Anyway, as per your question, the rebellions are indeed different, they happened in the same year largely because the Han Dynasty was very weak at the time. They did happen in different regions though, with the Yellow Turbans in the North China Plain and the Five Pecks in Sichuan. I hope this answers your question.

JUST A NOTE regarding your idea that mammals names should be written lower case or else seem unprofessionaL. Vice versa may also be true. Scientific names require capitals on the first name and lower case for their second and further names. Here are some examples which arise anywhere in the sentence similar to the necessity to capitalise a person's name or a town's name. Here is a scientific name which is capitalised irrespective of where it arises in the sentence text. For example, here i write Thylacinus cynocephalus, to give the Latin name of the Tasmanian, striped, marsupial; tiger-wolf. Tasmania merely gets a capital letter because it is the name of an island that is a State in Australia. Sarcophillus Harrisii is the scientific-name of the Tasmanian devil but is incorrect because all species second-names have to be all lower case in science, whether plants or animals. The correct term is S. harrisii. Capitalised second names are optional only in common names, based on the writer's preference and expectation of readers. Tasmanian Devil or tassie devil both mean S.harrisi. Tasmanian wolf is valid yet so is Tasmanian Wolf-Tiger and Zebra-Wolf. The species had various names because they look similar to wolves or dogs and yet their movement is rather like cats. Actually they are easy to discern and distinguish as novel, being more like an overgrown ferret or bandicoot to look at. Because often common names are capitalised to clarify them. Wolf is a species like Humans and Cows whilst the word cattle is more of a plain text name that is scarcely granted a capital letter unless it is alone or the first word. When i write about birds i often use a capital to do justice to their species as a form of respect. Today i saw a Letter-winged Kite whose scientific name is Elanus scriptus or it may have been a Bar-shouldered Kite E.notatus which are almost identical white-breasted birds. You can see i need to capitalise these common-names to emphasise that their common name is an official name. As it may seem an ephemeral description of adjectives. The words bar shouldered kite could seem a nuance-term invented due to ignorance of a properly named species label. thylagene 11:58, 14 December 2011 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Marsupiens (talkcontribs) 06:35, 14 December 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for your note. The genus and species Latin name of any taxon should be written with the genus capitalized and the species not capitalized. The Latin name should also be italicized. Birds on Wikipedia are to be capitalized as well, as per that project. In typical writing, using capitalization otherwise for mammals is inappropriate. But I see that you do not capitalize the word "I" and capitalize words like "JUST A NOTE," so I have difficulty believing you are serious. Wakablogger2 (talk) 16:15, 14 December 2011 (UTC)
