Mentor Q&A[edit]

Ahh, yes, the idea of this section is a good idea. Alternately, maybe we could put it on user subpage(s) to keep it separated from the user talk pages? (that way the archiving bot doesn't interfere with our conversations)

The way people accumulate edits is quite different for everyone, and RfA seems to recognize that; people with 20,000+ edits haven't passed before because of, perhaps, only doing very small copyediting. On the other hand, some people with 2,000-3,000 (or less) edits have passed because they make large edits at a time (very much like you). RfA doesn't depend on edit count; it is more of just a way to see how much time someone has spend on Wikipedia, although people will look at individual edits to get an idea of how much work he/she has done. Passing RfA really comes down to how much the person can/will use the additional admin tools (how much they "need" them), and how much they have already done in admin areas to show that. Anyway... (sorry I stranded somewhat off-topic!) as for the cleanup you are doing, don't think of anything you do as insignificant; Wikipedia is made as a whole of millions of large and small edits put together. Everything helps, big or small. Hopefully all of that made sense, LOL.   JJ (talk) 15:44, 30 July 2009 (UTC)

2008 Washington Redskins season[edit]

In November 2008, you marked this article for cleanup. I have re-written the content of the article to wikify it, added references, and fixed spelling and grammar. Please let me know after you have reviewed the article if you have any further suggested changes. Bobinit (talk) 07:37, 13 July 2009 (UTC)

Hey good job on the article. It's a LOT better. You did a good job on it! A lot of these sorts of articles just sort of languish for years. The main suggestion I have is to use the Cite Web template for your website references as that is the accepted way to cite websites. If you need any help, let me know! --Lendorien (talk) 15:44, 15 July 2009 (UTC)
Hey, I'm mostly a spot editor myself, so I appreciate people willing to invest the time needed to do the serious editing. Thanks! --Lendorien (talk) 01:39, 16 July 2009 (UTC)

Probably should of clarified my request for a cleanup (Criticism of Internet Explorer/Internet Explorer)[edit]

I didn't notice until you pointed it out on my talk page, but the IE Criticism is in the article, however it is, in my opinion, poorly organized and so it is hard to locate on the page.Dullstar (talk) 08:28, 21 July 2009 (UTC)

2000 NHL Entry Draft[edit]

You are also active in cleanup so I have a couple of questions. Why does it seem like most of the articles in cleanup are not tagged for cleanup in the article itself? When I cleanup, I always look for the tags in the article when I finish so that it would be auto removed from wp:cleanup. Is there a specific process that is supposed to be followed to insert something into cleanup, and also for the cleanup team after it is finished?

Thanks in advance for your feedback. Bobinit (talk) 06:59, 19 July 2009 (UTC)

I've done some of those table formatted pages. Ugh. Way to go for fixing it. In any case, the wikipedia cleanup page is a legacy page. For the most part, the cleanup tag catagories are what a lot of editors look for when cleaning up. Pages listed on Wiki:cleanup were identified via the old system (Which was people just manually listing them). Chances are a lot of them had cleanup tags at one time and had them removed. I tend to review articles when that happens and either re-add the appropriate tags, or remove the item from the list if it's in good shape. I personally put a note on the discussion page of the article with my observation on what needs to be fixed when I put up tags. It's a good practice because it justifies the tags and gives other editors a place to start. --Lendorien (talk) 14:36, 21 July 2009 (UTC)

World Factoring Yearbook[edit]

I'm leaving this message as you're listed as a current participant of WikiProject Business. I was informed yesterday that the current World Factoring Yearbook (circa £150) is now free for download as an ebook. It's a matter of filling out this form. I'm not sure if you'll find this useful as a reliable source, but I thought I should let you know that it's freely available online. I apologise in advance if this doesn't interest you!

WikiProject Investment[edit]

A1 Houston Office Oil Traders on Monday.jpg

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!
