WikiProject Warriors[edit]

Hello, AppleDapple11! I'd like to invite you to join the WikiProject Warriors. We work on improving Warriors articles and would appreciate your help. Cheers! Brambleclawx 02:55, 24 December 2009 (UTC)


There is a discussion going on at Talk:List of ThunderClan cats (Warriors)#Another discussion-Familial relationships. Your opinion would be valued, so please comment. Brambleclawx 18:04, 25 December 2009 (UTC)


Dear AppleDapple11: You may not know this yet, being a new editor, but everytime you post on a Talk Page, you should sign your posts with 4 tildes (~~~~). You will notice your previous posts have been signed by User:Sinebot, who is a bot that goes around signing unsigned posts. Don't worry too much; it took me a while to get used to signing my posts too, I forgot alot in the beginning.

Oh, ok.♫AppleDapple♫ (talk) 04:13, 27 December 2009 (UTC)

Hello again[edit]

Hi AppleDapple. (I'm going to leave out typing "11" from now on if thats ok with you). I've been watching your edits (no I'm not stalking, I'm just watching the warriors articles), and I have a little bit to say.

From your editing style, I am pretty sure you are a exclusionist, whereas I am an inclusionist. I don't actually have too much of an issue with you removing that "grandmother to etc." stuff, It's just I'd prefer to keep the stuff and improve the way its written, rather than simply deleting it. But we are all entitled to have our own opinions, so I am just letting you know mine.

One way I can see it being fixed is if the information is more organised, and we stop using the contraction 's, and actually write out "is". This is actually mentioned as a style point somewhere. probably the manual of style.

Thanks for taking the time to try and understand my opinions, Brambleclawx 21:42, 30 December 2009 (UTC)

Ok ♫AppleDapple♫ (talk) 00:36, 31 December 2009 (UTC)


Hello. I know you are extremely new, but do you think you might be any good at copyediting? I've already asked User:John Carter to do it, but he hasn't responded for a week, so now I'm going to ask all members of Wikiproject Warriors who have been active over the last week and aren't on vacation. Please help with copyediting Warriors (novel series) if you can. There's some general guidelines under WP:COPYEDIT, WP:MOS, WP:BETTER and WP:DEV. Don' worry if you can't; its fine. Thank you. Brambleclawx 20:08, 31 December 2009 (UTC)

I can try; is copy-editing just changing, for example, "She's" to "She is"? ♫AppleDapple♫ (talk) 22:18, 31 December 2009 (UTC)

Copyediting is basically fising up formatting, style, grammar, spelling, accuracy and that sort of stuff, without really editing the actual content. (paraphrased from Copy editing). So yeah, that would be one thing. I already copy-edited it myself, but I'm just hoping that by getting other people to do it as well, they might catch things I didn't.

At this rate, the article should be ready for good article nomination in about half a month. Thanks Brambleclawx 22:35, 31 December 2009 (UTC)

Oh, OK. I think I can try. ♫AppleDapple♫ (talk) 22:37, 31 December 2009 (UTC)

Is this you?[edit]

I feel kinda bad for posting so much on your talk page, so I've made the laster postings sub-topics of the first.

Anyways... Just curious... Are you IP user, the person who posted on the Sunrise talk page? I'm making this assumption because that was the user editing the character pages before I suggested they make an account... and right after, you appeared!!! *YAY!* I'm just curious, that's all, because if it is you, you don't really have to respond to questions from a year ago... you can just fix it, especially since that user hasn't been on since. Brambleclawx 22:03, 3 January 2010 (UTC)

No, I'm a different user number, but before making an account I just went around Wikipedia and edited random articles. ♫AppleDapple♫ (talk) 02:21, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

Oh... well, then I should still find a way to recruit that person then. That would make 10 active members of WikiProject Warriors! Brambleclawx 02:24, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

Shattered Peace[edit]

Someone created an article for it, so I know you're busy, but if we all chip in a little, it will much better, cuz it looks somewhat delete-able right now. ThanksBrambleclawx 01:51, 15 January 2010 (UTC)
