Untitled[edit]

sorry, i was going to rewrite this. Guinnog 01:03, 23 January 2006 (UTC)

John Gribbel[edit]

I have removed the photo of Gribbel who only has an incidental mention in the article and who's picture certainly shouldn't be given such prominence. --NeilN talk to me 23:54, 12 October 2013 (UTC)

It is certainly more interesting than that dumb gravestone. And anyway, you could simply have decreased the size and put the pic at the bottom next to Griddel's name. But then you do do a lot of editing, so I guess you don't have time. I've solved the problem by giving Gribbel his own page. (Knowing you, you'll probably delete it for lack of noteworthiness.) I can't for the life of me figure out why people find this insignificant page of such interest that the history looks like a constant edit war. Sheesh! Mike Hayes (talk) 09:18, 13 October 2013 (UTC)
More interesting is debatable but it's certainly not more relevant. The "edit war" is easy to figure out - someone is trying to replace the current content with a puff piece about a person who doesn't meet WP:N. Thank you for creating the new article although you won't win any points for civility. [1] --NeilN talk to me 13:55, 13 October 2013 (UTC)
