Provocative thoughts[edit]

  • I believe Wikipedia should not include all the information available in the universe.
  • I believe 90% of articles currently on Wikipedia are not really notable from an encyclopaedic viewpoint.
  • I believe Wikipedia should allow commercial advertisements.
  • I believe Wikipedia is currently not efficient, as the gigantic work of millions of people has only resulted in about 5000 articles of quality, and most of them are on unimportant topics.
  • I believe I should not engage actions based on the beliefs above.

You certainly deserve this for being so patient and helpful in the A-class review of Howard Staunton, as well as the work you did tying up the loose ends in Alexander Alekhine. Many thanks! Philcha (talk) 19:25, 6 July 2008 (UTC)
Working Man's Barnstar.png The Working Wikipedian's Barnstar
For several things, (1) almost singlehandedly doing list of chess books, (2) rating (at least) hundreds of chess articles, and (3) a lot of other stuff! Bubba73 (talk), 22:54, 9 August 2008 (UTC)
Peace Barnstar 6.png The Barnstar of Diplomacy
You certainly deserve this for your recent efforts. The "Quotes" thread was a brilliant safety valve. -- Philcha (talk) 22:43, 18 August 2008 (UTC)
