Aaliyah[edit]

Thank you for warning Markeis37, but he does not care and continues to revert to the non-free, low-quality image. Regards, --NiTen (talk) 10:38, 19 February 2015 (UTC)

Yeah, I noticed. They will end up getting blocked soon enough anyway. Widr (talk) 10:40, 19 February 2015 (UTC)
I hope so, he's really annoying and seems not to understand what is going on despite various people tried to explain what's wrong with the old picture. --NiTen (talk) 10:42, 19 February 2015 (UTC)

RE: Handbells article[edit]

You have edited my additions to the Handbells article. For as long as I have monitored this article, Cynthia Dobrinski has been listed as the only composer/arranger of handbell music. It is patently absurd to suggest that only Ms Dobrinski is of note here. While she is a talented and prolific arranger/composer, there are over 150 other published musicians in this category whose body of work is relevant to readers seeking information the handbell compositions. Kindly do basic research before making arbitrary edits. A simple visit to www.handbellworld.com -- one of the external links on in the Handbell article would reveal a robust list of composers and arrangers -- many of whom own their own publishing companies (external links which are also included) So before chastising editors for including pertinent information, you should, perhaps, investigate that information's pertinence first. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Emilypreston28 (talkcontribs) 17:35, 21 February 2015 (UTC)

We usually do not add names of people who are not notable enough to have their own Wikipedia articles. Only Dobrinski seems currently to have one. Also remember that it's always your duty to provide sufficient references and proof of notability if you add new content to articles. Widr (talk) 18:03, 21 February 2015 (UTC)

I provided references on the initial post by providing links to the composers' websites -- which you removed. And to suggest that Ms Dobrinski's page makes her notable is evidentiary that you have not viewed said page. It is problematic at best. What I am saying is that you, clearly, are not an expert, or even an ingenue in this subject. If you had even a rudimentary knowledge of the instrument, you would not be arguing with me that Ms Dobrinski's body of work, though laudable, is more relevant or noteworthy than that of far more prolific arrangers. Wikipedia's fragile credibility relies on the knowledge and expertise of the collective. When ill-informed elitists post or edit irresponsibly, it hurts the entire community. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Emilypreston28 (talkcontribs) 22:58, 21 February 2015 (UTC)

Your first addition was removed mostly per WP:ELNO. Note that it was initially reverted by another editor, before you put it back again. As for removing entries without articles, we follow the guidelines as described here. Widr (talk) 23:34, 21 February 2015 (UTC)

Mike Emrick[edit]

I was my intention to remove the vandalism myself which I incorrectly thought had not been deleted. Mike Emrick has been a very close friend and professional colleague of mine since 1977. (I will be working with him again next Saturday as his booth stats person on the NBC telecast of the Rangers at Flyers. You can see us working together on another Rangers at Flyers game last November here) Thanks for correcting my error which was completely inadvertent. Centpacrr (talk) 23:13, 22 February 2015 (UTC)

I thought it might have been a mistake, considering your editing history. No harm done, so I'll remove the warning. Widr (talk) 23:17, 22 February 2015 (UTC)
No problem, sir, glad you caught it. I have reverted many similar disruptive postings on Doc's WP page before and thought that is what I was doing this time too. Centpacrr (talk) 23:27, 22 February 2015 (UTC)

Secant method vandalism[edit]

I apologize about the vandalism that I accidentally reverted to. I was busy patrolling the recent changes and must have accidentally mistaken what had taken place at a glance. Jcmcc450 (talk) 18:32, 26 February 2015 (UTC)

@Jcmcc450: No harm done. That happens to me quite often as well, especially when using tools that only show the latest revision. Widr (talk) 18:41, 26 February 2015 (UTC)
