Zulia Article[edit] Hi, This Article is a Hoax, my english is very bad, The article should be deleted, i am a Venezuelan, todo lo que dice es falso, intente eliminarlo pero me has revertido el cambio, te agradecería que lo eliminaras, sino crees en lo que afirmo, puedes verificar la información en cualquier web, The Article Is Not True-- (talk) 06:20, 5 July 2008 (UTC)

Blanking articles appears to be vandalism. I warned you because your edits looked like vandalism. If an article is badly written we don't delete it, but instead we improve it. Esconder los artículos aparece ser vandalismo. Le advertí porque su corrige parecido vandalismo. Si un artículo es escrito gravemente nosotros don' la cancelación de t él, sino que por el contrario nosotros lo mejora.--SJP Chat 06:30, 5 July 2008 (UTC)

No entender, no se trata de que el articulo este mal escrito, sino que es falso (This Article is not true, The Independent Republic of Zulia...No exist!) I Am From Maracaibo (In Zulia State) This Article talk is unreal, should be deleted (sorry my very bad english)-- (talk) 06:36, 5 July 2008 (UTC)


Thx for your comment re Al-Aqsa; much appreciated. As you know, there is still a lot of work to be done on improving the article. For example, the long list of bulleted and numbered points in the section Religious significance. I hope more editors contribute to improvement. hagd. :) MP (talkcontribs) 11:34, 6 July 2008 (UTC)

Yes, I was going to wait for you to improve the Significance in Islam section. I just amended the titles somewhat in the subsections. :) MP (talkcontribs) 16:01, 7 July 2008 (UTC)

Voyageurs Cup[edit]

Hey man, my username is themodelcitizen, I'm at work right now under a registered IP. Please don't delete my edits just b/c of that. Cheers —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:43, 6 July 2008 (UTC)

I didn't revert your edits just because you're an IP. I reverted it because it appeared to be vandalism, and this IP has a history of vandalism.--SJP Chat 19:46, 6 July 2008 (UTC)
  • Sorry dude, trust me it's not me vandalizing. There's a bunch of comps across Ontario on this IP. I spend way too much time working on articles during downtime at work to have it deleted on a whim b/c somebody else in the company is vandalizing. cheers. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:46, 6 July 2008 (UTC)

I have very strong reasons to blank an articles I have created abd that is going to be deleted very soon. If you can close the discussion and delete it that would be great. meanwhile please do not undo my edit. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Melkart1 (talkcontribs) 19:51, 6 July 2008 (UTC)

Re: Thanks[edit]

No problem at all. I don't know if you know it, but I also see you a lot when I am huggling. Keep up the good work! J.delanoygabsadds 20:31, 6 July 2008 (UTC)

Since around the end of January. I started using Huggle around a month later. J.delanoygabsadds 01:56, 7 July 2008 (UTC)


Sure, I can do a review of your recent edits. You're not in an immediate hurry to have the review, are you? I have a couple of other things to sort out, and then I can review you. Thanks. Acalamari 16:18, 7 July 2008 (UTC)

I'll make sure I get it done by Friday, but if I forget, just leave a message here to remind me. :) I'm fine thanks, thank you for asking! :) I hope you've been doing good too. Acalamari 16:36, 7 July 2008 (UTC)

edits to Autro-Prussian War[edit]


Thank you so much for your notification that you'd reverted my edit to the Austro-Prussian War page. I'm very grateful that you let me know.

Still... the rationale for your reversion puzzles me. My one change to the page was to eliminate a simple and obvious typographical error. Do you really consider the elimination of this typo "unconstructive?" If so, it will be useful for me to know, as I move forward with other edits. If however, a closer look indicates that I was correct in deeming the typo a typo, and I was reasonable in removing it, please do me the favor of undoing your reversion.

Also, thank you so much for welcoming me to Wikipedia. And thank you for taking the personal time to be in touch with me.

Warmly, Shlimozzle (talk) 18:17, 7 July 2008 (UTC)

Sorry about that. It was a careless on my part. You did nothing wrong, and I appreciate that edit:-) I'm mainly a vandal fighter, and I use a tools called Huggle. What happened was I saw vandalism, and hit the revert button, but it switched to your version right before I hit the revert button, and it reverted your version instead. I'm usually good at noticing when that happens, but I guess I missed it this time:-P Sorry about that! Happy editing:-D--SJP Chat 18:38, 7 July 2008 (UTC)
No sweat. Thanks for being so swift and so gracious. Shlimozzle (talk) 18:41, 7 July 2008 (UTC)

re. Huggle[edit]

Yeah, Huggle is acting a bit odd, although, for me, it always has it's little quirks. Mine didn't crash though; that is weird. Did you do anything that might of overloaded it: multiple reversion in a short time? Reviewing the New Page list? (That always overloads mine). Leonard(Bloom) 19:32, 8 July 2008 (UTC)

That is strange. Huggle has crashed for me before, twice, and they were not related to things I performed on Huggle. It's odd... do you system requirements meet that of Huggle? Mine don't perfectly meet (or at least, my computer has some trouble running it). Could that be it?
Your welcome, and I'm glad I could help. I would in conclusion, identify as best you can what the issue was, then contact the Huggle discussion page. Happy editing, Leonard(Bloom) 19:47, 8 July 2008 (UTC)
Thank you very much. I enjoy being smiled at! ^_^ Leonard(Bloom) 19:51, 8 July 2008 (UTC)
Sound advice. Leonard(Bloom) 20:04, 8 July 2008 (UTC)

Well, well[edit]

Now you even get to beat me to the punch while reverting vandals with Huggle! :-) Way to go, keep it up! Best regards, Húsönd 22:49, 8 July 2008 (UTC)

Hey, could you check out my Liverpool gay quarter article now? I wondered if you could help me to upload an image...every time I upload one, it says 'unauthorized'. (Richie wright1980 (talk) 22:52, 9 July 2008 (UTC))


You must have made a mistake when correcting a vandalism attack, I fixed it, thanks for helping! -- - Tyler Puetz (talk) 01:11, 10 July 2008 (UTC)

Huggle error[edit]

(edit conflict) Another editor removed vandalism here and you warned him here for doing so. You then proceeded to put the vandalism back here and I had to fix it here. Please watch closely what you're doing when using Huggle. Thanks. Useight (talk) 01:13, 10 July 2008 (UTC)

I'm sorry if you didn't like the way I worded my above sentences. You'll find that I am a very frank and blunt person. I tell it like it is instead of sugar-coating. In my previous comment, my first two sentences consisted of stating exactly what happened. My next two sentences had a "please" and a "thanks". I never called you "careless when using Huggle". I've been called "hard as nails", so please don't be offended by my unemotional way of phrasing things. If I sounded accusatory, I did not intend to. Useight (talk) 02:22, 10 July 2008 (UTC)
And the same to you. If you see me mess up, please let me know. Useight (talk) 02:39, 10 July 2008 (UTC)


OK, the article needs a lot of work and quite a bit of reorganizing. However its not impossible to sort out. I'm going to make some point form suggestions.

  • I see refs displayed incorrectly in the article. Refs should look like this:

Paris is the capital of France.[9][10]

Notice that the full stop comes first and the sources follow. The source(s) should come after the punctuation. Ideally all sources should be moved to the end of the complete sentence, some people put sources after commas, while this is ok it is frowned upon at GA or FA. Also avoid this [1] [11] notice there is a space between the two refs. They should be pulled together like so [1][11].

  • There are a lot of sub heading, loads in the history section. However a lot of these sub headings contain little info. You have two options, if possible you expand these little sub sections if the information doesn't exist or isn't noteworthy your best bet is to turn the history section into 1 big blob of text. If you cant add more details to the "Name" section I would suggest merging it into the history section.
  • Unless you have more info to add to the Architecture section just remove it.
  • The huge quotes need to be cut down. You just need to give an overview of what was said/reported/written in your own words, quoting specific sentences or words here and there using "..."
  • Some sections are written as bullet point of numbered, they need to be turned into normal paragraphs.
  • Unsourced areas need sourcing.

This is in no way the end of the help I am giving you. However I'm not the type of person to pile on complaints, I think it's much more helpful to tackle it step by step, otherwise it seems like an impossible task. Once you have resolved these issues feel free to call me and I will take you through the next stage. If you don't understand anything also feel free to contact me. — Realist2 (Come Speak To Me) 18:52, 10 July 2008 (UTC)

Need your help[edit]

Hi there SJP, i have seen your an active member of numerous middle eastern projects and i was wondering whether you can help me with a problem i have with the formatting of a particular article(s) about a Pakistani politician here. If you have a look at the date format, its a tad out of whack as the link for the 25 is not quite right, i have tried unsuccessfully to fix it so hopefully you can help. Maybe it might be best to arrange it like this article with the Urdu at the end. Thanks, see what you can do Monster Under Your Bed (talk) 10:24, 11 July 2008 (UTC)

No probs, im sure someone will be able to help. BTW keep up your great work with Huggle, i have seen you around all the time. Keep it up Monster Under Your Bed (talk) 11:12, 11 July 2008 (UTC)

KPT Office and Commercial Tower[edit]

Just a quickie - you reverted the blanking on the above page. Quite frequently new users think that blanking the page is the same as deleting it - in this instance, they created the page, someone tagged it, then they blanked it. It's probably easiest, rather than reverting the blanking and warning the user, to tag it with G7 (one author who has blanked the page or requested deletion). Thanks! GBT/C 12:55, 11 July 2008 (UTC)

Couldn't agree more - I only know about that little policy foible as someone once pointed it out to me....! GBT/C 14:32, 11 July 2008 (UTC)

A review[edit]

Hi SJP, I did a review of your recent edits. From them, I see that you're a civil editor (which I knew already from my interactions with you), you participate in various XfDs and RfAs, the AIV reports that I reviewed were all correct, you heavily revert vandalism, but best of all you seem to be a friendly person. If you're looking to becoming an admin, then I'd suggest turning off Huggle, sticking with regular admin rollback, and do some article work (nowadays, heavy vandal-fighters get opposed and rarely pass). However, if you're not interested in becoming an admin, then what you're doing now is fine. You're doing great work, and I hope you keep it up. :) I hope this helps, but please do let me know what you thought of this review, and I can give further information if necessary. Best wishes. Acalamari 23:22, 11 July 2008 (UTC)

Email to Postal Mail

A convenient free postal mail service which can deliver email messages all over Pakistan. Peoples can now use their email to send letters giving you another route to communicate with others who are not connected to the Internet in Pakistan.

In recent past Internet and e-mail have revolutionized the world of communications. But those who do not have easy access to Internet and e-mail facilities could not get benefits of this facility. In its endeavour to make the benefits of e-mail available to a common man, Al Tayyeb Group has introduced i-post service. By i-post all those who do not have computer or do not have access to Internet can send e-mail by Post Office or receive e-mail through a postman. Those who have access to Internet can also send i-post to those who do not have access to Internet.

Wikipedia should have an article on this social service & must be a part of WikiProject Pakistan.Please comments. --SaqibChaudhry (talk) 09:25, 15 July 2008 (UTC)


Hi, I wonder if I can get you to advise in regard to something Camp 1391? There was an external reference added which I deleted. Twice actually.

IP problems[edit]

Hey SJP, remember me. Anyway, I have found an IP that has been causing troubles on the Punjab Police India page and Punjab India page. All of his edits have been destructive. He even went and blanked an entire page once. Do you know any Admins I can take this too? I left User:Necrosthesp a couple of days ago, but he still hasn't replied on my or his talk page. Thanks.

Aqsa Mosque[edit]

I've done some sweeping improvements to the al-Aqsa Mosque article while you have been away. I expanded, referenced and copyeddited the entire History section, including adding the facts on its actual construction. I started an "Architecture" section with four subssections: "Dome", "Minarets", "Facade and porch" and "Interior". I cleaned up, reference and copyeditted the Islam portion of the Religious significance section and started a new section on "Administration". I am planning to start an "Access" section today or tomorrow. After its addition, MoSing the references, and fixing the lead up (probably will get Tiamut to get a stab at it), I will, to your satisfaction, nominate it for GA. Cheers! --Al Ameer son (talk) 20:35, 7 September 2008 (UTC)

Being an administrator(is that the correct word?)[edit]

Hi, I check Wikipedia everyday for vandalism and other errors, I have so far found 1 (Arther Miller page) which I edited as "This page has recently been vandalised. This page will be updated soon to its original content." If I could be admin, i could more quickly and efficiantly sort these pages out. I love helping Wikipedia, its just that Wikipedia doesn't seem to notice.

Your input is requested at WikiProject Maine![edit]

Flag of Maine.svg Hello fellow WikiProject Maine members!
I'm trying to breathe a little new life into WP:WP ME and as such I have posted a few questions on the project's talk page that I would like to get some feedback from all of the project's members on!
  1. There are apparently a lot of inactive members on our participants list (and even a user that has been blocked for years). What do we as a project want to do about inactive or blocked users? I have some ideas on the issue, but would love feedback from others.
    • Remove blocked users that appear to be no longer interested in participating in developing Wikipedia.
    • Users with zero activity at all in three years are unlikely to come back. I suggest that we remove them from the mailing list and deactivate any categorizing feature of a userbox on their page. When doing this, we must make sure to leave a note on their talk page explaining that since they have been off-wiki for three years that they have been removed from the list as a purely technical measure and they are more than welcome to add themselves back to the list if they choose to start editing again.
    • Users with zero activity on wiki for 18 months may come back, despite it being unlikely. I would suggest that we mark those users as inactive on our mailing list, and stop sending them messages like this one to prevent their user talk page from filling up with irrelevant notices.
    • Users with zero activity on wiki for at least six months should be marked as inactive in the mailing list template, but should still receive mailings.
  2. I'm also trying to gauge some interest in there being a Great American Wikinic in Maine! If you are interested, possible locations might include Portland, Augusta, and or Bangor, please make a note in the appropriate section on our talk page!
  3. We should create a template to use for mass mailings from this wikiproject so all we need to do is enter our message and signature and the general format of the box and image and title and stuff will stay familiar. What is your opinion on this idea? Do you have any preferences to what that may look like (because I think this looks horrible compared to some I've seen from other projects)?

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

User:Dr. Blofeld has created Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/Contests. The idea is to run a series of contests/editathons focusing on each region of Africa. He has spoken to Wikimedia about it and $1000-1500 is possible for prize money. As someone who has previously expressed interest in African topics, would you be interested in contributing to one or assisting draw up core article/missing article lists? He says he's thinking of North Africa for an inaugural one in October. If interested please sign up in the participants section of the Contest page, thanks.♦ --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 01:36, 21 July 2016 (UTC)

New deal for page patrollers[edit]


In order to better control the quality of new pages, keep out the spam, and welcome the genuine newbies, the current system we introduced in 2011 is being updated and improved. The documentation and tutorials have also been revised and given a facelift. Most importantly a new user group New Page Reviewer has been created.

Under the new rule, you may find that you are temporarily unable to mark new pages as reviewed. However, this is nothing to worry about - most current experienced patrollers are being accorded the the new right without the need to apply, and if you have significant previous experience of patrolling new pages, we strongly encourage you to apply for the new right as soon as possible - we need all the help we can get, and we are now providing a dynamic, supportive environment for your work.

Find out more about this exiting new user right now at New Page Reviewers and be sure to read the new tutorial before applying. MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 04:29, 13 November 2016 (UTC)
