Request for your feedback, on an AE regarding ECIG Articles.[edit]

Hello, you are a recent editor of Electronic Cigarettes, I am asking for your input to an Arbitration Enforcement Request AE. Found here. If you have time I would appreciate your input. The items in question are listed out 1-8. Here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Arbitration/Requests/Enforcement#Mystery_Wolff
Thank you Mystery Wolff (talk) 03:48, 8 January 2016 (UTC)

Sorry, Mystery Wolff, I will abstain because I simply don't know. I'm not a "regular" e-cig editor, more like a lurker, and my edits were mostly gnomish in nature. I'm not inclined to comment one way or another just based on my superficial impressions from reading the AE and the talk page. No such user (talk) 15:32, 8 January 2016 (UTC)
I appreciate that, No such user, if only others who are commenting would use that rationale, instead of just wanting to skim with a TLDR accent and then conclude the banhammer is the only hammer or process tool. Cheers Mystery Wolff (talk) 22:53, 8 January 2016 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for January 20[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Zlatibor, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Zlatar and Veliki Rzav (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Re : Rollback[edit]

Hi there! Thanks for the suggestion. I presume you are a rollbacker? I know it is given to trusted users, etc, and I have been actively positively contributing for the past year or so. I was also interested in applying for the pending changes reviewer as well. Do you know anything about that? The thing is, before I started taking Wikipedia seriously, I was somewhat of a vandal myself so to speak... I once was blocked for 3 months about a year ago for a big edit war (It was later revoked, but still shows in my block logs). If an administrator were to look at my recent edits in the past 8 months or so they would be pleased, but if they look back to when I just started, it may tarnish their view... Do you think this may be overlooked and I should still apply (I rally have made a full 360 as an editor from where I was in the early stages). Thanks for your feedback. Regards, Vaselineeeeeeee (talk) 18:11, 3 February 2016 (UTC)

Hi again. I requested for pending review rights and told the administrators what I told you, and they granted me permission :). I inquired with another admin about rollback and they said it probably isn't right for me yet since I don't focus on reverting vandalism, I just revert when I come across it. So for now I'll just stick with pending review. There are some in my watch list like Andrea Pirlo, recycling, and Ferrari. Question: I noticed some users when they revert edits it says "reverted edit(s) by so and so to last version by so and so". When I reverted a pending edit on recycling's page it let me have the option to make my edit summary that. However, on regular pages the regular edit summary for a revert appears. Even for reverting multiple edits at one time; I assume that's a rollback thing you can do if you have that right? Is it possible to make the summary I put in quotes appear all the time? It can't be just for pending review pages since I've seen that edit summary for other users on non pending review pages... Thanks. Vaselineeeeeeee (talk) 01:33, 9 February 2016 (UTC)

Yugoslavia national Basketball team[edit]

Please stop deleting the notable players section, it took me hours to collect and correct all this information. It is not something unique, many wikipedia sports team pages have such sections. The content is is not unsourced, in every player's page you can find the sources for their accomplishments.Clicklander (talk) 17:18, 10 February 2016 (UTC)

Stop[edit]

Stop edit Belgrade photos...i will report you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 46.17.125.210 (talk) 10:55, 22 February 2016 (UTC)

NSU is right. The article has been bombarded with photos, it should have further photos removed definitelly. You stop adding all those photos. Ends up making the article look like a mess and it is not productive in any way. FkpCascais (talk) 12:13, 22 February 2016 (UTC)

JBT[edit]

Hi, if you could spare some time to look at the Talk:Josip Broz Tito. There is a RfC now, again, Silvio1973 started the same RfC that failed less than a month ago. It is hard to work with such user who does not appreciate other people opinions, or ignores the fact that his RfC failed. It would be great if you could make any contribution. Tnx --Tuvixer (talk) 16:28, 14 March 2016 (UTC)

@Tuvixer: Took a look, and concluded it's too much of a pissing contest for my taste, so I think I'll pass this round. You need a peacemaker there. Whoops, not that one, rather this one :) No such user (talk) 20:48, 15 March 2016 (UTC)
I hope Peacekeepers will not be required. xD Tnx anyway :) --Tuvixer (talk) 21:07, 15 March 2016 (UTC)

Doner kebab[edit]

Hi, why is it not in the Meat category? (Joking apart!) Cheers DBaK (talk) 13:24, 17 March 2016 (UTC)

@DBaK: because it is already in Category:Lamb dishesCategory:Meat dishesCategory:Meat. Per WP:SUBCAT, an article "should be categorised as low down in the category hierarchy as possible, without duplication in parent categories above it" — otherwise, high-level categories would get polluted quite quickly. (I was cleaning up Category:Meat and recategorized a few other dishes). No such user (talk) 13:31, 17 March 2016 (UTC)
Aha, brilliant, thanks! Cheers DBaK (talk) 15:17, 17 March 2016 (UTC)

Help please![edit]

Hi, I saw your post on my move for the Coast Salish People and Salmon. The our goal was to incorporate my and my partners section of salmon onto the Coast Salish People wiki page, as this is for our biology project and that is where our professor will be grading our work. I apologize for the big mess, but I'm having trouble moving our section as you can see. Is there any way you can help me out? Thanks

Warm Regards, Becky

Territory of Military Commander in Serbia[edit]

You may recall recently removing my translation into Serbian from the named article. Obviously since you were the second editor to do this in a short time I had to stand back. I'm involved in a discussion at Talk:Territory of the Military Commander in Serbia#Translation and if you'd like to comment, you are welcome. I appreciate it provokes "TLDR" but you may wish to scan the key points listed by us two interlocutors. The reason I say this is because your reasons for removing the translation were based on housekeeping guidelines, not to clutter whereas Peacemaker67 opposes it as no "reliable source" has been found to confirm the original name I entered. Two contrasting reasons, one says it is not needed, the other says the one listed is not reliable. This is why I put this debate to you. -OJ (talk) 10:24, 10 April 2016 (UTC)

...one other thing, Nedić's Serbia and all other variations of the two words, I notice in 2011 you directed the article to Serbia under German occupation before 2012 when other people started mucking about on the article and turning it into Territory of the Military Commander in Serbia pushing other intended articles onto other page titles. As such, would you object if I were to move the page to the VNS page since this is the entity associated with Nedić, the Military Commander page is an overview for the pre-Nedić entity as well. Thanks. --OJ (talk) 11:48, 11 April 2016 (UTC)

Re:Red-necked wallaby[edit]

Hi No Such user - the reason for my addition of the wallaby page to Category:Waimate District is that it is the one part of New Zealand where the wallaby is abundant, and as such has become an unofficial symbol of the Waimate District (which has the slogan "Wallaby country"). There are quite a number of signs featuring wallabies around the Waimate area, and if you mention Waimate to people around NZ, wallabies are usually the first thing that people think of. Sadly it's been a while since I've been through that part of the country, so I don't have any photos of my own to prover it, but these give some evidence... Grutness...wha? 09:38, 26 April 2016 (UTC)

@Grutness: I kind of inferred that, but I still don't think it's an appropriate member of the Waimate District category. I'll start a discussion on the talk page, just, I'm currently busy IRL. No such user (talk) 11:04, 26 April 2016 (UTC)

Staro Selo, Plovdiv Province[edit]

"are we ever going to have an article on a former 17th century village?"

Certainly not, if that is what it is, with its commonplace name. So: see it through, and remove the redlink which still points to it. I found out about the place in Plovdiv from a bad {{dn}} link to Staro Selo in the article Kosovo, Plovdiv Province. It was a pain to sort out, and no-one should have to do that again. I'm no expert on Bulgarian geography to know what places might be notable or not - even if I did manage to find bg:Белочерковски манастир for the English article. Narky Blert (talk) 02:07, 26 May 2016 (UTC)

Narky Blert: Fair enough [1], but I had no idea where that redlink came from. In any case, I took a look at Google maps in the area, and there's no trace of Staro Selo, it's all forest. Another strange thing is that Kosovo, Plovdiv Province is mere 3 km as the crow flies from the monastery, so they didn't have to travel long to resettle. Maybe that was meant to refer only to the "old village", not to the place actually named Staro Selo. Who knows. No such user (talk) 11:32, 26 May 2016 (UTC)
That's a common trouble with names like Staro Selo - did the original editor, or their source, actually mean staro selo? TY for checking the map, that's another minor mystery cleared up. Narky Blert (talk) 12:33, 26 May 2016 (UTC)

PA[edit]

About this - this article is under discretionary sanctions. This is very much a PA - it is a direct comment on contributor rather than content. Please self revert. I am about ready to file an AE and I would rather not pull you in. Jytdog (talk) 08:29, 31 May 2016 (UTC)

European Single Market[edit]

Hi. Could you please take a look over Talk:European Single Market#Requested move 29 June 2016? It was also a primary topic discussion, something you don't appear to have touched on in your closure. Thanks, Jenks24 (talk) 18:35, 15 July 2016 (UTC)

@Jenks24: Do you mean, where should Internal market redirect to – to Single market or to European Single Market? I noticed that it was an issue in the debate, but that's a touchy subject which I purposefully left unaddressed. I don't think there's an evident consensus or answer from the debate. Do we have to have an answer on that? (Or did you mean something else?) No such user (talk) 21:41, 15 July 2016 (UTC)
I mean is this topic (previously titled "internal market", now titled "European Single Market") the WP:PTOPIC for the term "internal market" or should the dab page be located at the base location? This was 50% of the proposal: "Internal market (disambiguation) → Internal market". And a decision needs to made about it one way or the other. Sorry I took a few days to respond.

This[edit]

Thanks. I was about to self-revert when I saw your edit. Even Milo doesn't deserve the full Milo. You did good. DracoE 14:07, 22 July 2016 (UTC)

@DracoEssentialis: Take care. And please, find yourself a better hill to die on. No such user (talk) 14:35, 22 July 2016 (UTC)
So many hills, so little time. ;) In the case of Milo, the chickens are still coming home to roost. Poor Kohs and his memory issues. Yup, I got WO-banned over protesting his Sublime Childishness' kohsying up to Milo and finding fault with his nasty comments about Jimbo's wife's looks. The good thing is that some of my friends over there are anything but forgetful. As for hills, fancy having a look through this list of terrible pictures and appraise the damage in article space? This here looks like a "good" candidate. See perfectly nice previous picture. What do you call a large gathering of Wikipedians? Too bad "an unkindness" is already taken.
