ESL question[edit]

A question is now vandalism? —Preceding unsigned comment added by JagerSS (talkcontribs) 16:12, 2 July 2009 (UTC)

No, an edit to the userpage of another user may be considered vandalism, oh and I see you have done the same here, thanks for that,  Badgernet  ₪  11:44, 3 July 2009 (UTC)


Thanks for reverting the vandalism to my user page. Cst17 (talk) 12:32, 8 July 2009 (UTC)

I do appologise. This sort of information doesn't have a source. It has been shown in magazines and as a friend to Addy can assure you this information is valid.

A late thank you.[edit]

In March this year you revereted vandalism to my userpage, and challenged the vandal. I didn't thank you at the time as the person was wikistalking me and I was playing the d.n.f.t.t. card. So thank you very much for your efforts, it gave me faith in Wikipedia. Yours, FruitMonkey (talk) 23:12, 12 November 2009 (UTC)

You are now a Reviewer[edit]

Wikipedia Reviewer.svg

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, is currently undergoing a two-month trial scheduled to end 15 August 2010.

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under pending changes. Pending changes is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial. The list of articles with pending changes awaiting review is located at Special:OldReviewedPages.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles (talk) 05:11, 20 June 2010 (UTC)

Congrats! ~Geaugagrrl talk 13:10, 20 July 2010 (UTC)

Welsh gold[edit]

I'm glad to see that someone else is keeping an eye on these persistent attempts to add misinformation and commercial links to pages concerning Welsh gold! I have been battling against this deliberate spreading of (to use a polite term) misinformation, for some 25 years now. I know I'll never win, but I won't give up either.Crefftwr (talk) 13:36, 8 March 2011 (UTC)

No problemo :)  Badgernet  ₪  15:54, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
Fyi a new person has just appeared on the wikipedia scene, making exactly the same edits to the Welsh gold pages,and obviously with exactly the same commercial motivation. These people are so well-organised. Crefftwr (talk) 12:32, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
Moved to Talk:Clogau Gold Mine  Badgernet  ₪  08:44, 30 March 2011 (UTC)


I would invite Crefftwr, Welshgolder, Pippa300489 and Badgernet to get together on the talk page at Talk:Clogau Gold Mine to discuss the issue of current ownership/exploitation and possible promotion. Peridon (talk) 14:13, 29 March 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for helping the Lola Folman page[edit]

Hello, I just wanted to pop over and say I appreciated the improvements (and addition) you made to the Lola Folman page. I am new as you've gathered and am happy that - rather than slapping some reproving "this needs to be wikified" tag on my work - you just fixed it. I hope using your example to better in the future. xox Jane Peppler (talk) 11:30, 31 March 2011 (UTC)

Dyfi Osprey Project[edit]

Hi - I visited the Dyfi Osprey project today near Dovey Junction station, and was fortunate enough to see the osprey on the nest (from a distance!) Do you know if this is part of the Dyfi Estuary Mudflats, or somewhere else? If it is separate, then I'll see if I can knock up an article, as it's certainly had sufficient media attention to make it notable. —  Tivedshambo  (t/c) 22:30, 14 May 2011 (UTC)

Hi, It is near to the Mudflats and agree would surely justify a separate article, just down the road is Ynys-hir RSPB reserve which is on the mudflats too... Regards,  Badgernet  ₪  10:13, 16 May 2011 (UTC)
Similar article up in Porthmadog RSPB Glaslyn Osprey Project,  Badgernet  ₪  16:37, 17 May 2011 (UTC)
Hi - sorry for not replying before. I'll see if I can knock up an article, and upload some relevant photos, but it may be a few days. —  Tivedshambo  (t/c) 15:35, 20 May 2011 (UTC)

Hi Badgernet,

I'd like to use your photo File:Raad ny Foillan sign.jpg on a leaflet I'm writing for my holiday cottage in the Isle of Man. Is this possible? I don't know anything about this kind of thing so your guidance is appreciated!

Dyfi ospreys[edit]

Hi - Is this one of the Dyfi Ospreys, or just a generic photograph? I can't find anything on the file page or source page to state where it was taken though I may have missed it. If it's just a generic photo, I feel it may be misleading, especially in the satellite tracking section, as it would imply that it's one of the fitted chicks.  An optimist on the run! 13:10, 23 April 2012 (UTC)

Good point... Fixed  Badgernet  ₪  14:15, 23 April 2012 (UTC)


We seem to have a Elvis Costello fan problem. Martinevans123 (talk) 21:44, 29 April 2012 (UTC)

Yes, very tiresome...will continue to keep a close watch on the page.  Badgernet  ₪  13:42, 30 April 2012 (UTC)
A friendly Admin had now kindly added a three month semi-protection. Martinevans123 (talk) 16:14, 2 May 2012 (UTC)
May be needed again, before long ... wonder why the Dundee/ Fife connection. As User:Boing! said Zebedee has now temporarily retired, I wonder if you could suggest any admin who could have a look there? Many thanks. Martinevans123 (talk) 22:50, 17 November 2012 (UTC)
...and has returned, it seems. Now with edit summary taunts too. (.. geolocates to "Birmingham" this time). Martinevans123 (talk) 13:55, 4 June 2014 (UTC)

Dwarf Kentucky, says thanks![edit]

MUCH appreciate your catch of the vandalism on Dwarf, Kentucky. I was surprised as there are some rather unique place names in Kentucky, Dwarf, does not crowd that list for certain....But again, thank youCoal town guy (talk) 14:11, 15 November 2012 (UTC)

New Wales Coast Path WikiProject[edit]

I see you're a member of WikiProject Wales and have contributed to Welsh articles. There's a new project, Llwybrau Byw!|Living Paths! under development which you might be able to contribute to. Lonely Planet rated the coast of Wales "the best region on Earth" in 2012, yet there is a very low number of articles on the history and culture of places along the Coastal Path and the many and various activities and attractions. This promises to be an exciting project as it gathers momentum with many Users joining in. Let's make this WikiProject, like the path itself, the best on earth!

I'd like to invite you to join the Investment WikiProject. There are a lot of Investment related articles on Wikipedia that could use a little attention, and I hope this project can help organize an effort to improve them. So please, take a look and if you like what you see, help get this project off the ground and a few Investment pages into the front ranks of Wikipedia articles. Thanks!
