Leanne Vogel's wiki article[edit]

Hello, I am not sure why you chose to mark the article I tried to create for deletion. Please help. Leanne has been very helpful to hundreds of people who have allergies/food sensitivities and are celiac (cannot eat gluten). I was in the process of adding similar blogs. Can you help me with this? What did I do wrong? — Preceding unsigned comment added by ApplicationError (talkcontribs) 01:39, 10 August 2011 (UTC)

Removed the speedy deletion tag on Odiyathur, as A7 does not apply to real places. Falcon8765 (TALK) 09:07, 10 August 2011 (UTC)


Hi Sean. I wanted to drop you a note and politely request that you don't place welcome templates on user talk pages of users who haven't edited yet. I know you have good intentions, but a discussion a while ago suggested that we should only welcome users once they have made an edit since many people create accounts and then never sign into them again. Obviously nothing bad will come about if you keep doing it. Cheers. Syrthiss (talk) 17:31, 11 August 2011 (UTC)

Racket (expert needed?)[edit]

Hi there. I saw that you added the expert needed template to the Racket features article. I've been contributing to this and the main Racket article, so I was just curious why you added the template. Could you add something to the discussion page to explain why? Thanks. --Takikawa (talk) 01:48, 16 August 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for replying. First of all, the examples on the Racket features page are mostly from the homepage of the programming language. i.e. they were written by experts in the language. They have been run and tested with the release software. The scope of the page is similar to the Haskell features page. Or do you mean that branch articles about a single language are not allowed by the Computing WikiProject? Also, I noticed that you added an NPOV template on my talk page. Was this on accident? As far as I can tell, I don't have any NPOV edits. Cheers. --Takikawa (talk) 02:45, 16 August 2011 (UTC)

Some notes on Template:Wikify[edit]

Hi, I'm from WikiProject Wikify. It is our job to go through all of the articles tagged with {{wikify}} and wikify them. I've noticed you tagged 1954 Rugby Union European Cup with a wikify tag, unfortunately this article is already wikified or another tag is more appropriate. The reason you tagged it incorrectly is probably due to the fact that it is not clear what the wikification process involves. Hopefully the following will give you some pointers for the future: I hope these pointers are helpful and thank you for taking the time to tag articles for us. If you want to find out more about wikifying please visit our project page or the talk page. You may even want to join the project. Wikification can be great fun, teaches you loads of different things and gives you loads to edit - we are currently dealing with a backlog of 0 tagged articles so your help would be appreciated!

Enrico Marone Cinzano[edit]

Hey. I've removed your speedy deletion tag from Enrico Marone Cinzano because there are claims of notability in that he's won design awards. I looked the article over and was on the verge of speedy delete tagging it myself, but those claims stopped me. If you still think it should be deleted, I guess AfD would be the way to go. The Mark of the Beast (talk) 20:48, 16 August 2011 (UTC)

Scorpius (Chinese astronomy)[edit]

The article Scorpius (Chinese astronomy) should not be merged into Traditional Chinese star names. The intent is to establish an article on each modern constellation with information on how they relate to traditional Chinese astronomy, and Traditional Chinese star names is basically a holding area until these individual articles are written. From what I can tell, there is one user who has been diligently (if sporadically) creating these new articles and removing the information from the holding area once the new article is complete. Scorpius is the latest of these, but it may not be complete, so the author hasn't erased the section from the general star names article yet. I understand how this may create confusion and is less than ideal, but the pool of people who a) know Chinese, b) know English, c) know astronomy, AND d) edit Wikipedia is really, really small. (I know this because I've been watching it happen and trying to help at the margins with what little knowledge I have.) I'll leave the merge template up for a few more days to see if there is input from other people, but my plan is to remove it after this period. BW95 (talk) 04:32, 18 August 2011 (UTC)

I changed my mind and went ahead with removing the merge template now. BW95 (talk) 04:52, 18 August 2011 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Thanks for the barnstar. The Mark of the Beast (talk) 19:25, 18 August 2011 (UTC)

Martin Smith (ceramist)[edit]

I have reinstated this article, which was speedily deleted last night, as Martin Smith (potter). The references are inadequate, but a cursory reading of the article would reveal that it is a candidate for improvement, not deletion. A reader of Wikipedia might reasonably expect to find information in it about a Professor at the Royal College of Art with work in major museums around the world. If an editor is unfamiliar with the topic and wishes to see the article improved, the polite thing to do is to draw it to the attention of other editors who might be able to help, not to delete before anyone has a chance to comment. Marshall46 (talk) 19:26, 18 August 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for your message. A professor in the UK has a higher status than a professor in the USA. In British universities a professor is either the head of department or someone notable in their field and often both. What you call "professors" we call "lecturers". Professorial status in the UK is therefore, by definition, evidence of notability - and the Royal College of Art is the postgraduate university of the arts in the UK, so Martin Smith is a pretty big cheese. Give me time and I'll add more sources. Marshall46 (talk) 19:57, 18 August 2011 (UTC)
The picture you sent me is the car man, not the ceramist. Let's see if we can find a non-copyright pic. Thanks for your help! Marshall46 (talk) 08:20, 19 August 2011 (UTC)

Edits - 15th Strike Wing - Philippine Air Force[edit]

Hi Sean. Will add more sources as I populate the article. Most of the text sources are from the Wing homepage at - and there are not much text articles about the Wing in any other websites. Unfortunately the site has not been updated in a while too.

Will do a 'ref' on the specific web pages. I'll give credit to web source and articles when it's due.

Thanks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Gavinmatthew (talkcontribs) 20:59, 21 August 2011 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Thanx for the barnstar. Reviewer when it first came out was handed out like candy, I haven't seen many request posted for that but, I don't see why not unless they have just quit giving out that right. I would ask an Admin on their talk page, rather than post the request at WP:PERM. Good luck.

Your request for rollback[edit]

Wikipedia Rollback.svg

Hi AwamerT. After reviewing your request for rollback, I have enabled rollback on your account. Keep in mind these things when going to use rollback:

  • Getting rollback is no more momentous than installing Twinkle.
  • Rollback should be used to revert clear cases of vandalism only, and not good faith edits.
  • Rollback should never be used to edit war.
  • If abused, rollback rights can be revoked.
  • Use common sense.

If you no longer want rollback, contact me and I'll remove it. Also, for some more information on how to use rollback, see Wikipedia:New admin school/Rollback (even though you're not an admin). I'm sure you'll do great with rollback, but feel free to leave me a message on my talk page if you run into troubles or have any questions about appropriate/inappropriate use of rollback. Thank you for helping to reduce vandalism. Happy editing! FASTILY (TALK) 02:45, 15 September 2011 (UTC)

A couple of reversions[edit]

You reverted (talk · contribs) on both Connecticut Route 45 and Connecticut Route 55. I have restored those two edits because they were constructive. The IP converted the infobox and junction list table to use {{jct}}, which is a Good Thing. Imzadi 1979  01:47, 25 September 2011 (UTC)


Please be more careful when reverting articles. The revert on Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind that you classed as an "unexplained removal" was adequately explained using the edit summary - the section of text was already tagged as OR and had been since January 2011, allowing ample time for any discussion. The section was clearly iredeemable OR and warranted removal. Little Professor (talk) 17:16, 25 September 2011 (UTC)

Unexplained reversion[edit]

Hello. Was wondering why you made this reversion without any explanation? cheers, Struway2 (talk) 17:58, 25 September 2011 (UTC)

No problem, and thanks for taking seriously the addition of apparently unsourced stats. Just so you'll know another time, the stats for most footballers playing in England are sourced to Soccerbase, usually linked in the External links section. It should really be a general reference, but that's another story :-) If you'd clicked on that link on Mr Russell's page, you'd have seen that the stats were in fact correct. cheers, Struway2 (talk) 18:26, 25 September 2011 (UTC)
