Archiving Guide[edit]

Thank you so much for the archiving guide. I was feeling a bit confused by the official WP archiving instructions and your step-by-step guide was brilliant! Thanks!! -Sarfa 17:11, 27 June 2007 (UTC)

That was really helpful. Thank you.Greglocock (talk) 03:57, 25 November 2007 (UTC)
This step-by-step archiving instruction is brilliant, i was having difficulty in archiving my messages which i've received on my talk page, but since i've found this instruction manual which is clearer than the WP archiving instructions, i am now able to archive my talk page when ever i want, i've also printed this instruction manual out so if i forget what to do, I'll use this instruction manual in the future.

Thanks for the step by step guide![edit]

Just wanted to say thank you for your step by step guide to archiving pages, it's really clear and helpfull! Erebus Morgaine (talk) 22:25, 16 September 2008 (UTC)


I see you've been an editor here since 2006, and you've made a fair bit of edits, including a great many in the mainspace and article talk page sectors, so I was wondering if you ever though about running for adminship. I'm currently trying out WP:Admin coaching myself, and aside from the fact that my coach has gone AWOL for a great period of time, it appears to be a smooth process that may be effective in some cases. Based on your edits, I don't think you'd have any problem passing, and I think you'd make an outstanding admin. :) GO-PCHS-NJROTC (Messages) 02:35, 19 October 2008 (UTC)


Thanks for the "How to Archive a Talk Page by 5Q5". I just used it to create two archive pages for Stephen Fry hopefully its all present and correct! --Uksam88 (talk) 21:30, 17 February 2009 (UTC)

I was slightly confused...[edit]

I'm not sure if it is just me, since others found your archive instructions to be very clear, but I was confused when I got to the area about deleting the content of my talk page. Don't I need to copy and move it first? I think if the template moves stuff that is a certian age or whatever, maybe a line or two for people who are REALLY slow with code, like me, would help greatly.

On the plus side, your instructions allowed me to create the archive page, which is more than the Wiki instructions did. I just couldn't figure out how to get my stuff to the page. It has since been finished, with much help.

Thanks for your hard work. Zulualpha (talk) 12:54, 19 August 2009 (UTC)


Just wanted to say that your asterisked note at X-Men: First Class was an inspired way of getting all the information in about the dual names in an accurate, neutral way. My compliments to you. That was really sharp editing. With regards, --Tenebrae (talk) 22:37, 18 June 2011 (UTC)

Archive of Wikipedia Talk pages[edit]

Do you know of any archive that includes a possibly extensive recording of Talk-pages discussion? In an ideal world.., these would be recordings of possibly long/extensive discussion, centered around a relatively small subset of Wikipedia articles: 10k-100k. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:57, 21 August 2012 (UTC)

For active articles with talk pages, you can access the history log by clicking on the link at the top of each talk page. I don't know why the decision was made on the following two deleted-article archive sites not to include the talk pages. Maybe to save space storage space. Nostalgia Wikipedia and Deletionpedia I think if there was a deleted talk page archive site it would be included as a See also link on Help:Archiving a talk page. If you ever find a link for a deleted talk page archive, place it there. 5Q5 (talk) 18:29, 21 August 2012 (UTC)

Dinah Washington[edit]

This edit. Why? - she died over 50 years ago. If there is an explanation, perhaps you should add it on the talk page. Ghmyrtle (talk) 11:48, 31 October 2014 (UTC)

You're right, my mistake. I see it has been fixed. 5Q5 (talk) 14:31, 31 October 2014 (UTC)

Thank You and Advice Request[edit]

Thank you for your advice on my (Paul Zane Pilzer) entry in Wikipedia. I believe all the requested changes and additional citations have been made. How then are the notices (close connection, considered for deletion, and additional citations) removed? Paul Zane Pilzer (talk) 23:45, 10 December 2014 (UTC)

Resolved. I removed the notices back then. 5Q5 (talk) 17:59, 5 April 2015 (UTC)
