==Wobblybob123== I did not edit or vandalise the Lincoln Cathedral wiki. I can only assume that a dynamic ip has been re-allocated and somehow attributed to myself. Wobblybob123 (talk) 22:44, 20 April 2012 (UTC)

Why did you revert my edit? I posted a link with more than enough proof including a validated blood test. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 66.85.134.67 (talk) 14:26, 18 February 2012 (UTC)

Salad cream[edit]

It's your lucky day--I've made a salad cream page. Noticed you're linked to the substance (which I've never seen; I'm an American) but I just thought it needed an article. BTW I'm a vegan and I'd never eat it in any case. Regards, Badagnani 11:03, 1 September 2005 (UTC)

Colonel Blimp picture[edit]

I thought that might not work. Any idea how it could be done so that we avoid the thin column of text between the still from the film and the big box on the right? SteveCrook 04:18, 22 March 2006 (UTC)

Arthur, is your name really Adolph[edit]

I'm sorry, but are you really implicating that you were named Adolf, I'm guessing that was it due to your Austrian heritage and why don't you legally change your name to something else.Having a name like Adolph could lose you oppurtunities in jobs, I know I have an odd name too

Fair use rationale for File:Lofty Large Aden 1966.jpg[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Lofty Large Aden 1966.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the file description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. ww2censor (talk) 22:39, 11 June 2010 (UTC)

The Wire[edit]

Hey, great edits on Wire articles! I just read this book which you may be interested in [1]. It was pretty good.. there is a decent amount of analysis that could be incorporated in articles here--I'm not sure when/if I'll have the time to do it though. Thanks --CutOffTies (talk) 15:36, 29 September 2010 (UTC)

Hi CutOffTies, Thanks for the thumbs up - nice to know work done is appreciated. I might well check out the book you recommend, although at the moment I'm working my way through the official series guide, as there's some good stuff in that too, which could help improve some of the articles.
By a rather circular coincidence, I've just watched Spirit of the Marathon (and very good it was too) after stumbling on the Wikipedia page you wrote on the subject. So good work there. Ah, mutual appreciation, eh. Ain't it grand?
Also, for future reference, as you may have seen on my user page, I've set up a second account, user:Gus Haynes, purely for Wire edits so that I don't clog up my regular watchlist. Arthur Holland (talk) 13:55, 30 September 2010 (UTC)
I really appreciate you sharing that about the documentary article! --CutOffTies (talk) 03:29, 1 October 2010 (UTC)

File:PC103099.JPG listed for deletion[edit]

A file that you uploaded or altered, File:PC103099.JPG, has been listed at Wikipedia:Files for deletion. Please see the discussion to see why this is (you may have to search for the title of the image to find its entry), if you are interested in it not being deleted. Thank you. Kelly hi! 20:30, 23 December 2010 (UTC)

New footnote[edit]

Arthur, you should improve the wording in the new footnote you added. It reads: "in 1890 the total population of Rio de Janeiro was 515,559. Of these only 55,861 (10.8% of the total population) were not eligible to vote solely because of their illiteracy". Anyone who reads it will believe that the remaining 460,000 inhabitants of Rio de Janeiro could vote. Also, since you're adding that data, you should also add the correct page numbers where they are found in the book: pages 84 and 85. Regards, --Lecen (talk) 17:03, 30 December 2010 (UTC)

Empire of Brazil FAC nomination[edit]

Are you enjoying your first FAC nomination? Trust me, is always like that. They treat us like garbage and we have to smile at them. Nice, huh? Ow, and leave Fifelfoo's comments on sources and references to Astynax, he'll deal with it. --Lecen (talk) 02:06, 5 January 2011 (UTC)

Louise Camuto[edit]

Hi Arthur, Thanks for your help on this subject. What would suffice as a good source for this information then? Is it better just to remove her educational history? --65.51.232.210 (talk) 17:26, 10 January 2011 (UTC)

Well, a valid source would be a mainstream newspaper article, magazine article, or mainstream TV/radio program. However, given that the article's subject is (I presume) not sufficiently notable to have received any mainstream media attention since her beauty pageant days, I presume this won't be possible? As it stands, if you leave the educational info as it is, it will remain in the article but with the [citation needed] tags in place. You can come back later and put acceptable references in if you are able to find any.
I know it all seems a bit draconian, but it's the only way to a) stop people putting self-aggrandizing statements into articles about themselves, and b) stop people from putting libelous statements into articles about people they dislike.
Any further queries, just shout. Arthur Holland (talk) 17:44, 10 January 2011 (UTC)

Requesting your opinion[edit]

Arthur Holland, since you are one of the nominators of Empire of Brazil to Featured status, I'd like to request your opinion at Talk:John VI of Portugal#Requested move.

Vandalism[edit]

I have recieved messaeges saying I have vandalised some pages. I have never even heard of these pages let alone edited them. This maybe somebody hacking my IP address. These messages date from 2010 when I did not know how to edit Wikipedia.--62.7.92.50 (talk) 12:51, 14 February 2011 (UTC)

Not sure what to say really. Your IP address is registered to St Edmunds School in Hertfordshire. Are you saying you're not accessing the internet from this school? If not, and you don't know anything about the edits, then I would suggest you ignore any messages that pop up. Arthur Holland (talk) 13:30, 14 February 2011 (UTC)

Thanks Arthur, wow, I appreciate your help[edit]

Thanks Arthur, wow, I appreciate your help. I think I did pretty good creating that page. It was my first time and it took about 6 hours! As far as the text, I kept hearing my dad (a policeman) say "just the facts ma'am." But most of the time was spent gathering and formatting the references. I created some pages for IMDb a few years ago so I kinda/sorta knew what to do. I posted your revisions and improvements, Thanks again, HollyDHS5646Calif (talk) 17:34, 20 February 2011 (UTC)

Win Butler[edit]

Please can you do some research on Win Butler, and stop making such threats on my talk page? I find it rather troubling that you would flex your muscles in such a manner, just leave me to edit please. 87.114.244.70 (talk) 12:17, 25 February 2011 (UTC)

Win Butler Source[edit]

He's known to have a strong interest in soccer, and Bradford City FC are a fourth tier team who get 10,000 fans in a 25,000 seater, Win Butler has been identified as a potential crowd-puller by the owners.. I can't say what he's privately said to the chairmen of Bradford City but read between the lines. The Football (or Soccer) industry is rather secretive when the manager selection period takes place, so good luck finding a source. I guess you'll just have to delete... 87.114.244.70 (talk) 12:24, 25 February 2011 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

for the info. Palosirkka (talk) 13:31, 25 February 2011 (UTC)

Arthur, Hey it's Holly... I could sure use your help again. Re: paul whitehead (politician) ...we've written the page, and it's posted! at least we think so... but now we want to get the link for Paul Whitehead (politician) --not Paul WHitehead-- into 2 pages: California's 36th congressional district and California's 36th congressional district special election, 2011 but i think it's about disambiguation because there is that other Paul Whitehead ...Please help, Thanks:) hollyDHS5646Calif (talk) 02:58, 26 February 2011 (UTC)

True Grit[edit]

Hi! Let's review the edit here

Your edit summary was: "RV good faith edit. She wasn't Steinfeld's double - she played the adult, amputee Mattie. She had more screen time than Elizabeth Marvel, who voiced (and played in close-up) the adult Mattie"

Well, the article describes the woman as being "the character's body double" - But then all that means is that your edit should have corrected/clarified the text. I don't see why the entire paragraph was removed. WhisperToMe (talk) 20:48, 27 February 2011 (UTC)

I think because the particular double actress was interviewed in depth in a major U.S. newspaper about her role, the statement is more important than if it was merely a piece of trivia from a DVD cover. I'll see if I can find more sources about Ruth Morris... WhisperToMe (talk) 21:13, 27 February 2011 (UTC)
I found one other source from a different Texas newspaper: Ward, Alyson. "Chance led Ruth Morris to 'True Grit,' but her role isn't a new one." Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Tuesday December 21, 2010. -- I'll rewrite an expand the paragraph using this source too. WhisperToMe (talk) 21:14, 27 February 2011 (UTC)
Okay, I posted the new paragraph. Hopefully it illustrates the significance better WhisperToMe (talk) 21:19, 27 February 2011 (UTC)
Alrighty :) WhisperToMe (talk) 14:58, 28 February 2011 (UTC)

Luis Fortuño 'and' removal[edit]

Hello I've just noticed you correctly reversed a nameless contributor's addition of 'and'. I also thought it was a good faith edit on his part, but I am now noticing that he is systematically creating small faulty edits on several articles, and never discusses anything. He seems particularly obsessed with removing ALL instances of 'due to' in favour of 'because of' even when not appropriate. I'd write to him and but he has no talk page. From his multiple contributions this month only, I'd say nearly half of them deserve reversal, but my grammar isn't impeccable either. Would you have a look at his contributions and see if you agree? Cheers--Tallard (talk) 04:01, 24 March 2011 (UTC)

For for[edit]

Sorry, Arthur, sometimes let myself get carried away in the spelling corrections. I thought "for for" was in most cases a repetition. I apologize for the mistakes, i'll be more careful. Good job,--Eumolpo (talk) 06:43, 27 March 2011 (UTC)

Sticking my nose in[edit]

I don't know why I'm butting in, since NYB will no doubt answer your question the next time he logs on, but it looked as if his revert of your edits might have caused you some distress, so I'll say something: I would wager a large sum of money that he hit the rollback button on his watchlist by mistake. I know I've done that a couple of times myself. --Floquenbeam (talk) 22:51, 12 April 2011 (UTC)

Hi Floquenbeam -- thanks for the message. I thought it might be that myself, as it was (I thought) a pretty inoffensive/constructive sequence of edits.
Anyway, I appreciate your concern for my wounded wiki-pride. Cheers. ;-) Arthur Holland (talk) 22:56, 12 April 2011 (UTC)
well, 33% concern for your wounded wiki-pride, 67% avoiding large quantity of work in the real world, but you're welcome anyway. --Floquenbeam (talk) 23:00, 12 April 2011 (UTC)

Mr Creosote[edit]

(Copied from my talkpage) I have no memory of that edit and certainly did not intend it. The article is on my watchlist, and I must have hit the "rollback" button inadvertently. I apologize, and have restored your edits. Regards, Newyorkbrad (talk) 01:01, 13 April 2011 (UTC)

Apology[edit]

Hello, my name is Tyler(STCooper1). I am sorry about the True Grit edit. I did that before Doniago talked to me about excessive editing. I have edited True Grit again and left out a lot of excess material. I hope it is better now. I will not do any more excess editing. (STCooper1 (talk) 17:30, 23 April 2011 (UTC)) )

verification[edit]

Hello, my name is Tyler. I just did an edit to the biography of Edward Teach(Blachbeard) and would like to ask you a question. I just changed the way Teach died to something I both read in a book and saw on a history channel presentation about him. I read that changes must be verifiable. Does that count as verifying that he died that way? Thank you STCooper1 (talk) 19:55, 29 May 2011 (UTC)

Stephen Fry[edit]

Hi Arthur, Thanks for adding P. G. Wodehouse and Evelyn Waugh to the list of influences to Stephen Fry. I knew when I added Oscar Wilde that I had been incomplete, but I didn't have his biography at hand. :)


I'd like to direct your attention to the Stephen Fry talk page on the discussion I tried to start about adding his honorary degrees to the infobox. I'm from Holland :P and this needs some British eyes. Thanks --IIVeaa (talk) 11:32, 29 July 2011 (UTC)

Nomination of William Devino for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article William Devino is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/William Devino until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on good quality evidence, and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion template from the top of the article.

All English churches that pre-date the reformation are catholic in origin[edit]

I have added a new section to Lincoln Cathedral's talk page where we can discuss the statement of a very general nature, which Woodseats44 (talk) has repeatedly added to the summary statement at the top of Lincoln Cathedral: "Like all medieval buildings that are now cathedrals of England, Lincoln Cathedral is Roman Catholic in origin as it predates the Reformation." before making any further changes. — GrahamSmith (talk) 13:38, 28 February 2012 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

I hadn't read the whole discussion. This person is doing the rounds of the cathedrals. I'll check what s/he has been up to, but probably not for 12 hours as I am off to the Sydney Royal Easter Show. It always seems so strange to have the major Harvest Festival at Easter. All through Lent, the country towns are holding local shows. And because everything is so totally upside-down, there will be baby lambs and spring flowers, as well as autumn flowers. Amandajm (talk) 22:30, 12 April 2012 (UTC).

Paris-Sorbonne article[edit]

Dear Arthur,

My name is Joshua and I'm a Master student in History of Art at Paris-Sorbonne University. In order to reply to your message, I would like to say that I consistently change the modifications I guess you have been making in the past few months about the article because I would like to provided with updated ranking information about the university. The QS 2014 ranking results have been published few weeks ago and the university ranks first in France, whereas it was ranked second last year, as you recorded.

On the other hand, I do think that the overall ranking performance you provided with is OK, but is not to be considered "paramount", at least, not to be put first in a introduction paragraph of an article on a university specialized in Arts and Humanities. I hope you understand my point.

Let me know what you think. Don't want you to think that I'm trying to mess things up or that I want to disagree with you on purpose.

Best. J. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 88.137.124.56 (talk) 18:10, 7 October 2014 (UTC)

Sorry![edit]

To whom it may concern,

I'm very sorry that my minor edit's to "Walter Tull" have disappointed you, feel free to up level my writing. I was only trying to help and do my best. Please keep in mind that I'm a young adult and I am new to Wikipedia. Thank you for your co-operation. XOXO
