It looks like you've been here for a while, but never received a proper welcome. You seem to be doing a lot of WikiGnome edits; keep up the good work. Horologium (talk) 13:16, 19 October 2008 (UTC)

Bill Haley[edit]

Wow! I have no idea how long that piece of vandalism had been in the Bill Haley article -- I'd even edited it myself several times and it was one of my "key" articles. Thank you very much for catching this (it was most definitely vandalism or at least bad faith entry of wrong information). 23skidoo (talk) 17:12, 7 November 2008 (UTC)

Please check facts before making changes[edit]

Martha Moxley's mother's name was correct before you changed it. The wording change here is no improvement, it just makes the sentence sound clunky. Sometimes it helps to read things out loud first. Don't get discouraged. --CliffC (talk) 17:18, 18 May 2009 (UTC)

Unreferenced BLPs[edit]

Information.svg Hello Billyfutile! Thank you for your contributions. I am a bot notifying you on behalf of the the unreferenced biographies team that 1 of the articles that you created is currently tagged as an Unreferenced Biography of a Living Person. The biographies of living persons policy requires that all personal or potentially controversial information be sourced. In addition, to ensure verifiability, all biographies should be based on reliable sources. If you were to bring this article up to standards, it would greatly help us with the current 2,352 article backlog. Once the article is adequately referenced, please remove the {{unreferencedBLP}} tag. Here is the article:

Disambiguation link notification for November 4[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Chuck Barris, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Palisades Park (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
