A cup of coffee for you![edit]

A small cup of coffee.JPG Thanks for contributing that news article about the hijras. Blue Rasberry (talk) 16:17, 15 April 2014 (UTC)
I see that you are near London. Perhaps we can meet at Wikimania over the summer if you attend. I will be at meetings about medicine, India, and LGBT issues, and if you visit any of those you would find me. Cheers! Blue Rasberry (talk) 19:08, 15 April 2014 (UTC)
Hey there Blue Rasberry , that would be fab. Face-smile.svg I don't know if I'll make it to the conference, but if I do then I'll see you there. Balaenoptera musculus (talk) 11:10, 16 April 2014 (UTC)

ITN Barnstar[edit]

For suggesting/inspiring the new "Ongoing" line on the ITN template, I hereby award you this barnstar. It is not every day someone improves a well established process by noticing a simple idea that had been overlooked for years. Well done! --ThaddeusB (talk) 20:18, 26 April 2014 (UTC)

Oathkeeper Thanks[edit]

Just wanted to take a moment to thank you for getting involved in the Oathkeeper discussion. As you probably noticed it's become (was always?) a bit of a mess, and I think an outside perspective was desperately needed. DonIago (talk) 15:02, 27 May 2014 (UTC)

No worries! Face-smile.svg Balaenoptera musculus (talk) 15:21, 27 May 2014 (UTC)

A friendly greetings[edit]

Hi, nice to meet you on GoT articles. I thought you were an insect, LOL. Now that I've done my homework, I've just realized that you're a whale. What a surprise. Nice to meet the first whale contributor. I'm a homo sapiens sapiens called Anthonydraco (talk) 15:26, 30 May 2014 (UTC)

Good to meet you, Anthonydraco! Face-smile.svg
Us whales are chronically under-represented on Wikipedia, I'm just doing my bit to redress the balance.

Your earlier comments.[edit]

Prof Bloom believes that William Shakespeare adapted his version of Romeo and Juliet from a previous version of the play written before Shakespeare was born, and therefore Prof Bloom published his analysis that the informed history of criticism and commentary about Romeo and Juliet should start before Shakespeare's adapted version from the original version.

@FelixRosch: Interesting - I hadn't realised that. I think he's in a minority within academic circles, do any other RS agree with him? Balaenoptera musculus (talk) 20:56, 2 June 2014 (UTC)
  • We could say that the general academic consensus is one way but Bloom's view is different. Best of both worlds? --Balaenoptera musculus (talk) 20:57, 2 June 2014 (UTC)
Hello Balaenoptera musculus: Your good suggestion for the "best of both worlds" on Romeo and Juliet I had posted there after the RFC was recently closed out. It looked like the best edit version among the general consensus. A single editor has removed it. Could you glance at this? FelixRosch (talk) 16:08, 26 July 2014 (UTC)
