SuggestBot picks articles in a number of ways based on other articles you've edited, including straight text similarity, following wikilinks, and matching your editing patterns against those of other Wikipedians. It tries to recommend only articles that other Wikipedians have marked as needing work. Your contributions make Wikipedia better -- thanks for helping.

If you have feedback on how to make SuggestBot better, please tell me on SuggestBot's talk page. Thanks from ForteTuba, SuggestBot's caretaker.

P.S. You received these suggestions because your name was listed on the SuggestBot request page. If this was in error, sorry about the confusion. -- SuggestBot 16:07, 29 April 2006 (UTC)

STUFF TO DO[edit]

--james °o 00:46, 19 May 2006 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

I screwed up that revert, thanks for fixing it! --mboverload@ 07:57, 23 May 2006 (UTC)

who are you[edit]

who are you? and what is the sandbox? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 83.70.78.103 (talkcontribs)

I'm User:Bornhj, and the sandbox is a place where you can practise your editing without affecting articles others have worked hard on. --james °o 12:53, 26 May 2006 (UTC)

Oral Sex[edit]

I believe most people won't be willing to see a man fellating another man since homosexuals only make up a small percentage of the population; I am therefore removing the image again. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 128.235.249.80 (talkcontribs)

While you may not like the image, Wikipedia is not censored. Please don't remove the image again, other people may interpret is as vandalism. --james °o 12:15, 27 May 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for the reversion. I was wondering what I was doing wrong as nobody has vandalised it in a while. Cheers. CambridgeBayWeather (Talk) 05:03, 4 June 2006 (UTC)

Regarding the Image:Playboy 0603.jpg[edit]

Why have you tagged this image? It is fair use as it has been tagged with the appropriate copyrights, hasn't it?

Jean-Paul 14:39, 9 June 2006 (UTC) Talk to me


Fair use isn't universal. It would be fair use if it was being used "to illustrate the publication of the issue of the magazine in question." Personally, I don't think it is, but it's a borderline case IMO. you can reply here. --james(lets talk) 23:25, 9 June 2006 (UTC)
I'd have to demur. This is a good fair-use claim. The actress' attitudes towards nudity are relevent to the article, and the image is directly referred to in the text. Ideally that text should not be in the "trivia" section since these should be killed with fire. Out of the last forty fair use claims I've seen this is actually one of the best. - brenneman {L} 13:03, 14 June 2006 (UTC)

My RfA[edit]

Admin mop.PNG Hello, Bornhj/Archive2, and thank you for the supportive vote on my recent RfA! With a final vote of 84/1/4, I have now been entrusted with the mop, bucket and keys. I will be slowly acclimating myself to my new tools over the next months, but welcome any and all feedback and suggestions on how I might be able to use them to help the project. Thanks again! - Kukini 05:22, 13 June 2006 (UTC)

Super happy mega lightning fun thanks![edit]

Dear James, thanks so much for your support during my recent successful request for adminship. I really appreciate it. Let me know if you need any administrative support; just leave me a message on my talk page or send me an e-mail if it's urgent. Take care man -- Samir धर्म 05:30, 15 June 2006 (UTC)

DVD+R/W's RfA[edit]

DVDMOP.jpg Thank you for your support in my RfA, which ended with the result of (74/0/0). If there is anything I can help with feel free to ask. Also, if there is anything I am doing wrong, please point that out as well. I look forward to working with you in the future.

Highest regards, DVD+ R/W 02:26, 17 June 2006 (UTC)

AOL IP Blocking[edit]

I don't know how to block ranges, otherwise I would have done so. I definitely think we should block that range for 90 minutes or so... but we can't, can we? Ian Manka Talk to me! 13:34, 18 June 2006 (UTC)

I proposed a range block for an hour on the admin's noticeboard. Thoughts? Or should I just be bold and just do it? Ian Manka Talk to me! 13:40, 18 June 2006 (UTC)
Done. Hopefully, I did it right... Ian Manka Talk to me! 13:45, 18 June 2006 (UTC)

Transwiki log cleanup[edit]

I can't begin to tell you how absolutely delighted I am that someone's cleaning up the mess I'm leaving on the transwiki log, and I think it's fantastic that the en.wikibooks log has been cleared already. (You know, I'm going to fill it right up again in a short while...)

I just had one request of you when you're doing cleanup for en.wiktionary in particular. Could you have a look at "what links here" for the entries that have already been deleted, and remove backlinks that invite the creation of a dictionary definition, rather than an encyclopedic article? This will usually be most backlinks, except for those whose backlinks are completely irrelevant -- a movie title, place name, entirely different concept, etc. This should help curb recreation of dictionary definitions.

Actually, this applies to all projects, but to Wiktionary in particular, so could you in general please check the backlinks on redlinks on the transwiki log please? It would help greatly. Many thanks! TheProject 04:32, 24 June 2006 (UTC)

An example wouldn't hurt, I guess: check out these two diffs. Most should be orphaned but some more common words may have backlinks like these. Thanks again. TheProject 16:05, 26 June 2006 (UTC)

AOL headache[edit]

Hi James. That's right but that what i meant by collateral damage. After a while, someone in a good faith would edit wikipedia. I mean we had to observe the IP before taking action. Thanks for your coordination. -- Szvest 10:36, 26 June 2006 (UTC) Wiki me up&#153;


Yep looks like it's suddenly stopped. Sorry to beat you a couple of times, I was refreshing the page every second, then just hitting find next with firefox on 207.200.116, taking a quick look with popups then bosh instant revert. Khukri (talk . contribs) 10:38, 26 June 2006 (UTC)
Just alert me if vandalism persists to discuss this matter w/ a collegue admin and see what we can do. Thanks guys. Szvest 10:42, 26 June 2006 (UTC) Wiki me up&#153;
I'm on it again. Khukri (talk . contribs) 10:43, 26 June 2006 (UTC)

James, anyway of backchecking edits made by 207..... to see all those we've missed Luna Santin reckons it's been going on and off for a couple of days. Khukri (talk . contribs) 11:00, 26 June 2006 (UTC)

The only admin that should never fall asleep is Can't sleep, clown will eat me. Unfortunately, he's w/ the clown recently :(. -- Szvest 11:05, 26 June 2006 (UTC) Wiki me up&#153;

Thanks for[edit]

The revert on my user page. ;-) Netscott 11:49, 26 June 2006 (UTC)

Adminship[edit]

No worries. Just go to the link and decline so it can be removed. -- Szvest 12:10, 26 June 2006 (UTC)

NICE ONE Khukri (talk . contribs) 12:07, 26 June 2006 (UTC)


Can understand your hesitation, but you needn't assume that you have to have all the abilities of an admin to assume the role. It's a wide and varied job. You have already shown that your interested and a fair hand as an anti-vandal, and with restraint admin tools can be very powerful and aid the cause. Also looking through your contribs you do a fair amount of tidying work on articles, just my tuppence worth but I would discuss it with a bit more detail with Szvest and maybe try and get mentored, or maybe take on the role doing what you do well now, and look to expand it into other areas of wikipedia if you are so interested. As I say just my tuppence worth. Later mate. PS you Aussies were lucky with the rugby this time round ;) Khukri (talk . contribs) 12:23, 26 June 2006 (UTC)

RfA thanks[edit]

Thanks so much for the support on my recent RfA, which I'm quite happy to announce has passed with a consensus of 67 supporting, 0 opposed and 0 neutral. I'm glad I passed your criteria, and I'll be working hard to justify the vote of confidence you've placed in me. Let me know at my talk page any time if I can help you with any admin-related tasks, or just if you have any comments on how I'm doing as an admin. Thanks! TheProject 21:47, 30 June 2006 (UTC)

P.S. Keep up the good work with the transwiki log. I'm heartened to see that I'm not the only one tackling these big monsters. :-)


AAC[edit]

Mate, I'm interested in why you thought the

was inappropriate?

Fair enough, I thought it was the Millitary part.

Music samples[edit]

Hi, I see you've responded to the straw poll at Wikipedia_talk:Music_samples. Since your vote, there has been some further discussion here, and I've suggested a slight amendment to the proposed guideline. I'd really appreciate your feedback on the subject.
