AfD nomination of The Corsham School[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

I have nominated The Corsham School, an article you created, for deletion. I do not think that this article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and have explained why at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/The Corsham School. Your opinions on the matter are welcome at that same discussion page; also, you are welcome to edit the article to address these concerns. Thank you for your time. Do you want to opt out of receiving this notice? --HughCharlesParker (talk - contribs) 22:18, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

petrol interceptor[edit]

Thanks for your edits. I still pass by here from time to time. I don't know anything about petrol_interceptors except I've seen signs for them on the M25 and created the article - because I wanted to know more about them. CustardJack (talk) 22:43, 14 July 2011 (UTC)


I just saw that as of May 20, 2011, you tried to keep track of your speedies. If you still want to, you can enable the "CSD log" at WP:TWPREFS. Just a suggestion. Regards, Avenue X at Cicero (talk) 14:19, 25 September 2011 (UTC)

Brilliant! Thank you very much will be much easier to do now. I didn't even know that Twinkle had a preferences section. Thanks again. Bailo26 14:28, 25 September 2011 (UTC)
Anytime. Avenue X at Cicero (talk) 16:35, 25 September 2011 (UTC)

Relevant links[edit]

Come on cant we just remove all those external links then, if from your view my links isn't neccesary addable, pliz just remove all links then.

Tell me 1 reason to not include a link to fan made wiki's ?

WP:FANSITE Specifically number 12 and a few others. Also please dont forget to sign your comments using four (~) characters consecutively Bailo26 16:21, 25 September 2011 (UTC)


Hello mate. Just wanted to clarify with you, as mentioned, the source shows he is head judge and as per Virus101 and Rob, it doesn't need to be repeated and should be left under the heading of relevance. Best regards. Yids2010 (talk) 16:44, 25 September 2011 (UTC)

My apologies, I missed that link all together, the only reason I reverted it was I wasn't even aware that X-Factor had the Head Judge position and I thought they were all equal but apparently not. I did just think it was a bit of random and unnecessary because of that. I apologise again. Bailo26 16:53, 25 September 2011 (UTC)
No problem mate, I was under the same impression until the sources proved otherwise. Anyways thanks again and all the best. Yids2010 (talk) 17:22, 25 September 2011 (UTC)

Invitation to the April Wikification Drive[edit]

the edit you reverted there was not vandalism. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:38, 14 April 2012 (UTC)

I do apologise but it certainly appeared that way to me, most of us don't have a tendency to refer to other users as "fucking stupid". In fact looking through your user edits on talk pages of other users and AfD's your edits do seem to be in quite an aggressive tone all together with a lot of reverting other users edits if they change something. One of Wikipedias five pillars (the principles by which Wikipedia operates) is Civility. Feel free to take a look here as it may help you better understand how we work here. Have a good day!

Speedy deletion contested: محمد أمين الفرايجية[edit]

Hello Bailo26, and thanks for patrolling new pages! I am just letting you know that I contested the speedy deletion of محمد أمين الفرايجية, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: Article does not exist at a foreign Wikipedia. You may wish to review the Criteria for Speedy Deletion before tagging further pages. Thank you. —Theopolisme (talk) 23:37, 8 February 2013 (UTC)

track my IP - I don't edit and you told me I will be banned[edit]

Hi there, I just visited an article and was told I had messages from you about my recent edits. I don't edit wikipedia. I then looked at these messages and then the articles in question and I have never seen them before. I use wikipedia for homework, I don't vandalise or edit anything. Either someone has managed to use my laptop without my noticing, which I say is impossible, or has been rerouting when vandalising. Even though I don't edit I'm sure you can understand I don't want my IP banned for something I didn't do. If the edits come from anywhere but England, or Yorkshire more specifically, then they're not me. I'm from England, why would I want to vandalise the internet? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:51, 3 March 2013 (UTC)

Hi there! No-one has placed blame on you directly so first off don't worry about that. The user that was editing was from the same IP address you happened to be connecting from, IP addresses change from time to time and are generally shared around by your service provider (in this case BT), these are called Dynamic IP's. The warnings that were posted to the page occurred back in October 2011. The warnings on your IP addresses account tend to be reset every month. One way that you can prevent this occurring or risking it happening again is to make an account on Wikipedia. You don't have to edit and it just means that (unless you are vandalising) there is no risk of you being banned. Have a nice day! Bailo26 00:38, 4 March 2013 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Pride 2014[edit]

Hi Bailo26. In case you are not aware, there is an upcoming campaign to improve coverage of LGBT-related topics on Wikipedia, culminating with an international edit-a-thon on June 21. See Wiki Loves Pride 2014 for more information. If you are interested, you might consider creating a page for a major city (or cities!) near you, with a list of LGBT-related articles that need to be created or improved. This would be a tremendous help to Wikipedia and coverage of LGBT culture and history. Thanks for your consideration, and please let me know if you have any questions! --Another Believer (Talk) 17:59, 13 May 2014 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:SYM Motors Logo.svg[edit]


Thanks for uploading File:SYM Motors Logo.svg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 21:52, 19 January 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
