Thanks for fixing the placement on the "Requested move" page. Momentary forgetfullness on my part. --- Barek (talkcontribs) - 17:10, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

NP. I make worse misteakes. (talk) 17:16, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

Talk:Mission: Impossible[edit]

I was just going to close it. I am entirely happy with the decision. :~) Aymatth2 (talk) 02:37, 8 February 2009 (UTC)

Isn't it always that way? Just before you are going to make an edit, someone else does it for you? And yet, how many times have you seen someone make a request on a talk page and no one ever fixes it? Like, hey who is in charge of these 1,000 monkeys, anyways? (talk) 12:10, 8 February 2009 (UTC)

Requested Moves[edit]

On what authority are you cleaning up the requested move pages? Non-admins shouldn't be closing move debates, should they? carl bunderson (talk) (contributions) 00:40, 17 March 2009 (UTC)

Anyone who is uninvolved in the debate can close them. (talk) 01:37, 17 March 2009 (UTC)
Ok, I was unaware of that; had never seen it done before by anyone but an admin. Please re-close it, if you wish. Couldn't hurt to get an account though, could it? carl bunderson (talk) (contributions) 01:45, 17 March 2009 (UTC)
Actually, WP:RM was run by a non-admin for a long time, JPG-GR - they finally became an admin last October. (talk) 01:52, 17 March 2009 (UTC)

Just out of curiousity, since you're demonstrably so engaged in WP, why don't you want an account? carl bunderson (talk) (contributions) 02:05, 17 March 2009 (UTC)

I guess it is mostly just out of habit now. You know you can change your username to carl bunderson if you prefer - just go to WP:RENAME. It's pretty quick and maintains your history. I'm sure you have read the bit about using your real name as a username. (talk) 02:22, 17 March 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, I've read the real name bit. It might catch up with me one day, but I like to think taht this keeps me honest, as it were. :P carl bunderson (talk) (contributions) 03:01, 17 March 2009 (UTC)


May I impose on you to share how to find the hit counts for pages?sinneed (talk) 04:09, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

Added links to (talk) 04:21, 18 March 2009 (UTC)
Thank you very much. A useful tool.sinneed (talk) 04:32, 18 March 2009 (UTC)
Very useful, but not well known. For a while it disappeared (last July) and there was an attempt to create an "official" version, but I don't think anything happened. (talk) 04:40, 18 March 2009 (UTC)
I hit a beta of what I think was to be a Wikipedia version back in... December?... It went away after a few days. It is actually probably good that it is not well known. A few million hits might put someone's server into overload, or make their internet pipe explode. ;0) (figuratively) Thanks again, All the Best. :) sinneed (talk) 05:06, 18 March 2009 (UTC)
Well it is of a lot more interest to editors than readers, which outnumber editors 1,000 to 1. There have been strong objections to putting hit counters on articles, for example, which would be viewable by readers. (talk) 05:11, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

Public economics[edit]

Tnank you for your comments. My response is at User talk:Thomasmeeks#Public economics. --Thomasmeeks (talk) 20:34, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

Thank you for your 2nd assist also. It gave me food for thought and allowed me to speak w more clarity when I wrote Anthony directly. My request was granted. --Thomasmeeks (talk) 16:28, 27 March 2009 (UTC)

Noticed your good work[edit]

Hi. I've noticed your help in Requested moves, and just wanted to say thanks. It's a fun area to work in, but the administrative details are numerous, and it's great having another set of eyes and hands who understand how the page works. Your thoughtful comments in move discussions are appreciated too. Cheers. -GTBacchus(talk) 01:40, 26 March 2009 (UTC)

Thanks. I enjoy the fact that it is very eclectic. (talk) 01:46, 26 March 2009 (UTC)
Yeah. Have you ever tried stub sorting? It has a similar appeal, but quite a bit further underground, as it were. -GTBacchus(talk) 03:43, 26 March 2009 (UTC)

Yukio Endo move[edit]

Is my incomplete request complete now - or do I need to do anything else regarding the move? I had never been on that board until today, so I don't know how things work. It is silly to have (gymnast) in the article's title when his name on its own suffices; there are no other articles with the same name, which is the only reason to need the profession in the article title as well as the name. However, due to there being a redirect at Yukio Endo, I was unable to move the page myself. Nietzsche 2 (talk) 17:07, 26 March 2009 (UTC)

I moved it to the incomplete section. If you like you can delete it from there and move it to the uncontroversial section. In fact, I will do that myself. If there is any objection it will get bounced back into the contested section, and it can be completed and put into "Other". (talk) 17:15, 26 March 2009 (UTC)

Request to move article Amazonas Department incomplete[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg

You recently filed a request at Wikipedia:Requested moves to move the page Amazonas Department to a different title - however your request is either incomplete or has been contested for being controversial, and has been moved to the incomplete and contested proposals section. Requests that remain incomplete will be removed after five days.

Please make sure you have completed all three of the following:

  1. Added {{move|NewName}} at the top of the talk page of the page you want moved, replacing "NewName" with the new name for the article. This creates the required template for you there.
  2. Added a place for discussion at the bottom of the talk page of the page you want to be moved. This can easily be accomplished by adding {{subst:RMtalk|NewName|reason for move}} to the bottom of the page, which will automatically create a discussion section there.
  3. Added {{subst:RMlink|PageName|NewName|reason for move}} to the top of today's section here.

If you need any further guidance, please leave a message at Wikipedia talk:Requested moves or contact me on my talk page. - JPG-GR (talk) 18:22, 28 March 2009 (UTC)

Touche. Can't get away with anything these days. (talk) 00:56, 29 March 2009 (UTC)


Just wanted to give you a heads up that your revised list spells Colombia as "Columbia". Ham Pastrami (talk) 22:11, 4 April 2009 (UTC)

Thanks. Forse of habit. (talk) 01:09, 5 April 2009 (UTC)

My Apologies[edit]

But, I'm unsure if my request to move my article about Latent Semantic Indexing is being reviewed or if I need to redo my request. This is my first contribution TO Wikipedia, and I am unsure of the procedure for submitting an article for review, etc. If you can point me in the right direction, I would appreciate it very much. Thank you!--LatentDrK (talk) 17:05, 8 April 2009 (UTC)

It is being reviewed. It takes about 5 or 6 days. Alternatively it can be moved to the "Uncontroversial" section of WP:RM and it will be acted on immediately. The biggest question is, should it be in all caps, in other words is it a proper noun? I see that Latent semantic analysis was changed from all caps to not being a proper noun. (talk) 12:38, 9 April 2009 (UTC)
Actually, since you are the sole contributor, there is a far simpler procedure you can do - simply cut and paste your lsi article into the former redirect and you are done. Once again you need to decide, is it a proper noun or not, and paste it into the correct location. Then just edit the redirect for the other one to point to your new article.

Special Educational Needs[edit]

First I should apologise, your mumber is so like the number of another taht with my disability they appear to be the same without very close inspection. So I did not indetify you first contribution to the Move debate as as your first contribution but a continuation from the other number User.

because of this endless discussion about Special education and Special Educational Needs which are two seperate issues, not the same at all, I have ahd to find an alternative solution to resolve my immediate problem while editing the dyslexia article. So from my own personal perspective I can now leave WIKI to sort out its own globalisation mess, but it will be those readers from outside the USA who will be loosers when thyey can not fathom how to find the information they are looking for due to international Disambiguity.

My only interest in WIKI is for the Dyslexia and Auditory Processing Disorder are not a mess and reflect the current peer reviewed global research. I can work around the nonsense which I percieve as WIKI stupidity, and I now have an adminsitrator helping me with the WIKI technical issues so that i can concentrate on the content of my pet articles. I will make a token effort to improve other articles but I do not have the time to waste withdranw out processes of WIKI especially as most of the adminstrators do not bother to do any research into the topics they are considering.

Thank you[edit]

Thank you for putting up with everything I have been doing to WP:RM. Soon enough, my robut will stop doing stupid things. —harej (talk) 23:38, 19 June 2009 (UTC)
