March 2008[edit]


Hi, the recent edit you made to Wikipedia:Requests for page protection has been reverted, as it appears to be unconstructive. Use the sandbox for testing; if you believe the edit was constructive, ensure that you provide an informative edit summary. You may also wish to read the introduction to editing. Thanks.

Nuvola apps important.svg You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war. Note that the three-revert rule prohibits making more than three reversions in a content dispute within a 24 hour period. Additionally, users who perform a large number of reversions in content disputes may be blocked for edit warring, even if they do not technically violate the three-revert rule. If you continue, you may be blocked from editing. Please do not repeatedly revert edits, but use the talk page to work towards wording and content that gains a consensus among editors. If necessary, pursue dispute resolution. -Jéské (v^_^v Detarder) 17:56, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

Picture sizing[edit]

Hello! I wanted to ask about picture sizing on various article. I notice you have made changes to several bishop articles, sizing them to 230px. In a few cases, such as the articles for Randolph Royall Claiborne, Jr. and Marc Handley Andrus, this size is larger than the actual image, and lowers the quality of the article. I have changed these back to display a size that does not distort the images. Is there a standard for setting infobox images to 230px? (I will do that if there is.) I do think that in cases where 230px is larger than the image, it should be left at default so it does not distort. Any thoughts? --AltioraPeto (talk) 21:36, 1 May 2008 (UTC)

Yes. You are right. -- (talk) 04:27, 2 May 2008 (UTC)

The Quill/Electrobe[edit]

Oh, I remember him alright. It certainly looks like him, but it's your assumption. File a sockpuppet report and then send me the link so I back vouch your part of the discussion. Therequiembellishere (talk) 17:22, 25 May 2008 (UTC)
