Calendar of saints (Church of the Province of Melanesia[edit]

Hi! Thanks for adding Calendar of saints (Church of the Province of Melanesia to your project's work queue. You may want to move the article to a better named page. I noticed that the current article is missing the closing paranthesis in its name. regards. -- Whpq 21:24, 13 September 2006 (UTC)

Right Reverend S. Arthur Huston[edit]

He was my grandfather. During his lifetime he detested the nickname of "Sim" and always styled himself "S. Arthur Huston." I'm prepared to create a redirection if that proves necessary.

Have you consulted the files at San Joaquin Apostolic Succession?

Re: Holy Ghost baptism[edit]

Hi - I just thought I'd make contact with you about that article, and basically say hi! I went to it seeing it tagged as a CSD G1 (which it was), but an AfD had been opened on it by another admin, which based on the two !votes there, I quickly closed (citing WP:SNOW as the AfD had only been up for a few minutes). I hope this clears the air, and appreciate the ambiguity of such a quickly-closed AfD! Thanks Martinp23 20:53, 20 November 2006 (UTC)

Succession of Bishops of the Episcopal Church in the United States[edit]

Hi, I had a feeling I'd be hearing from you, since I looked at the history of the article before I dove in. When I looked at the article and saw so many blanks, I figured I'd update it, since I have an Episcopal Church Annual at home (2001, unfortunately, as that's when I left the church's employ). When I saw that you're actively adding names, I figured I'd go back and add things you didn't have. But I don't have time for this! Wikipedia is becoming addicting! I have to limit myself to one or two dioceses a night. The Red Book has the list of each diocese's previous bishops, so I figured I'd go through and identify them as II Alabama, etc., where they aren't already. Take care. Ed (InkQuill 15:39, 8 February 2007 (UTC))

OK, B.P., how does anyone get Ed Browning as the 8th bishop of Hawaii if they just elected their 5th? (Do you find it as odd as I that we have to have conversations on each other's talk page? I find it very disconnected.) InkQuill 20:32, 8 February 2007 (UTC)

Hi. I've wondered what happens if two people try editing the same article at the same time. I had hoped that the system would block the second person. Actually, it may just be a fluke. I had computer problems last night--when I open Adobe Acrobat in Firefox it sometimes freezes my laptop. I thought I was going to lose everything I did (which was scattered throughout the article) but I was able to get back to it and save. I'll take a look when I get a chance. Ed (InkQuill 15:41, 23 February 2007 (UTC))

Conversion of units[edit]

Hi - on this page the bot 'corrected' cental to central. Ordinarily no problem, but in this case the unit of measure really is a cental. -- BPMullins | Talk 01:18, 28 March 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for that. Another user, Rhialto already pointed it out to me, and I've made a note of it so it won't happen again. Cheers, CmdrObot 17:53, 28 March 2007 (UTC)

Wikipedia talk:Notability (people)#Regarding notability of Football (soccer) players[edit]

Hi, seeing you have been involved in previous Afd debates on the subject I invite you to contribute to this discussion to clarify certain issues about football player notability. I think clearer guidelines are needed to avoid repeated inappropriate nominations for deletion and time consuming discussions. Cheers! StephP 22:23, 29 March 2007 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Alekhine's defense, Modern variation, 4...Bg4[edit]

Hi, you commented at this AfD that my nomination was too broad, but you did not clarify why. They are all clearly on the same subject, and the differences between the pages are slight at best. In fact, I'd say the whole category is rife with the same problem, but since I do agree that would be far too large a nomination I refrained from doing that. Instead, I tried to pick a fair variety of pages so that folks could get some idea of the scope of the category and so that I could get some idea of what pages to nominate on further reviews of the category and what to merely tag for clean up. Do you feel I nominated too many at once, or is there some difference in the pages I'm not seeing? Yes, I do know that some are referenced, with a brief mention of some minor history, and some are nothing but listings of moves, but over all, I do not consider that difference as enough to warrant closing the nomination. Each page can be weighed on its own merits, and the numbers are not too high, nor is the subject too different for any kind of discussion to develop.

In any case, I'd still like to know what you think constitutes a page worth keeping and what kind of page is worth deleting. The category of Chess openings has a 196 pages. I've tried for a while to get some clean up going without an AfD, but there has been no sign of it happening, so I feel I'm going to have to do it myself. But with that large a number, I do feel a need for feedback before continuing, and I do feel that I'm going to have to bundle more in the future. So if you could just help me figure out a good course of action to take I'd be much obliged for your aid. FrozenPurpleCube 17:26, 13 April 2007 (UTC)

And BTW, your signature refers to BPmullins which is different from Bpmullins. You might want to fix that. FrozenPurpleCube 17:45, 13 April 2007 (UTC)

Favorite betrayal criterion (3rd nomination)[edit]

Hi BP. Thanks for undoing the vandalism. Of the pages on my watchlist, Toni Morrison seems to get hit a lot.

I noticed with some sadness you left the Succession project. I hope you didn't feel bullied by the way I was doing it. Last night I finshed one phase--I've identified all the bishops in each diocese as far as I'm able. My Red Book is 2001, so I can't add consecrators to the newer bishops, and some dioceses remain blank probably because they're now part of Mexico.

I really shouldn't spend so much time on this, but I'd like to do more bishop bios and upgrade diocesan pages to have similar formats, categories, include lists of bishops, etc.

What do you think? Where's your energy going? InkQuill 23:05, 15 May 2007 (UTC)

I've got less editing time right now. It's not that I left the Succession page, but my Red Book is even older than yours so I had less to offer. And you were doing such a good job that it seemed best to let you do it your way.
The idea of working for a common format in diocesan pages sounds like a good project. If you'd like to start working on that I'd be happy to help. -- BPMullins | Talk 04:23, 16 May 2007 (UTC)

Hi! I just looked at your talk page because I was wondering why you hadn't answered my post! I guess you weren't on my watch list, so I never knew you replied!

As for diocese pages, I've been using Connecticut as a template, but there may be a better way. For example, I took the format for the list of bishops from some other diocesan page, but listing a bishop three times if he/she serves as a suffragan, coadjutor and diocesan doesn't seem quite right. I also don't know if there are additional categories or other things that should be included. Probably there's a template for an info box, or one should be created, but that's beyond me. I'm going to edit Rhode Island tonight, but I don't want to get as caught up as I was with the succession list--I've gotten way behind in doing ancient things, like reading the newspaper!

Educational film AfD[edit]

Hi, you recently attempted to nominate Educational film for deletion. There appears to be a bug in Twinkle that is currently being worked on that prevented the script from completing the process. Another editor has since removed the afd tag from the article -- I just thought I'd let you know in case you hadn't noticed yet and wanted to nominate the article again.

Johnstone Burgh[edit]

While it is true the majority of this league are U-15 it is the best league of its kind with all the teams taking part being of a decent standard & the best of them feed players through to profesional teams country (such as Celtic, Aberdeen & Dundee United). This league notable as it is not just teams from near the town of Paisley as the name sugests, it include teams such as Oban Saints, who for an away game have to travel for at least 3 hours to play the team most local to them. This is becuase the P&D league takes only the best teams from this district. All the teams in this league are notable but I have chosen Johnstone Burgh because of their success in the blackpool tournament & because while other teams are declining The Burgh are getting better & better. —Preceding unsigned comment added by DLB 4 eva (talkcontribs) 16:26, 19 October 2007 (UTC)

Your signature is broken[edit]

Hi there - I noticed a comment by you on another page, and I just thought I should point this out in case you weren't aware: your signature isn't working properly. The first part links to your user page, but the second part links to the nonexistent User talk:BPmullins instead of User talk:Bpmullins (this page). You can fix this by going to Special:Preferences and altering the 'signature' field; for more information, see WP:Signatures#Customizing your signature. Robofish (talk) 13:42, 1 May 2009 (UTC)


Hi. You made this edit in which you removed links to Dean Guitars and Dean Foods from the disambiguation page, Dean, with the edit summary, "rm off-topic links". The purpose of a disambiguation page is to assist users in finding topics where there are many subjects which might be known by the same way. There is no such thing as an "off-topic" link on a disambig page, so long as the name of the thing in the link is the name that is being disambiguated. Cheers! bd2412 T 15:34, 2 July 2009 (UTC)

About religion[edit]

"Episcopalianism" is a recognized word in English. Furthermore, in many other articles, it is standard, that the religion of a politician or other VIP is stated as for e. g. "Judaism" instead of "Jew", or "Methodism" instead of "Methodist". -- (talk) 23:08, 2 November 2009 (UTC)

Speedy deletion declined: Fathammer[edit]

Hello Bpmullins. I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of Fathammer, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: They've attached themselves to a number of games that are notable enough to have articles. That's a sufficient assertion of notability for A7. PROD or take to AfD if required. Thank you. GedUK  16:49, 14 February 2010 (UTC)

Dr. Jose Delgado[edit]

The man whose page I vandalized is the man who wrote "Physical Control of the Mind: Toward a Psychocivilized Society." I understand that vandalism isn't very polite, but calling someone a homosexual is a far cry from implanting a device in their mind to control their actions with radio transmissions (before you think I am insane, read Jose's page). I am not saying what you did wasn't absolutely correct, as I have no proof Dr. Delgado has sex with men, and thus your revision was justifiable.

I just wanted you, BPmullins, to know what horrible deeds Dr. Jose Delgado has performed in his life so you don't think I am vandalizing people's pages who don't absolutely deserve it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:15, 8 April 2010 (UTC)

Category: Bishops of the Episcopal Church in the United States of America[edit]

Thank you for fixing my error in changing the category for Frederick Borsch. At the time I made the change I thought that Los Angeles was a sub group of California. I have posted a question at Wikipedia_talk:Categories_for_discussion#Category:_Bishops_of_the_Episcopal_Church_in_the_United_States_of_America regarding this subject which has not received any replies to date. I was wondering if you had any input of the subject. Dbiel (Talk) 00:29, 7 September 2011 (UTC)

You're welcome. The difference between California the state and California the diocese isn't readily apparent. I don't spend much time thinking about categories, but I'll check the CfD. Cheers -- BPMullins | Talk 15:13, 7 September 2011 (UTC)

Attainded v Attainted[edit]

Hi, I noticed your edit on Richard Whiting (abbot) changing "attainded" to "attainted" (while leaving the piped link to Attainder). Is there a particular reason for this?— Rod talk 15:56, 10 January 2016 (UTC)

I was simply correcting what appeared to be an misspelling. The adjective is indeed attainted. OED has " 2. Subjected to attainder n." with a first appearance in 1596. attainded doesn't appear at all.
OK thanks.— Rod talk 08:00, 11 January 2016 (UTC)

Bishop Pike[edit]

hi BP ...

I was reading the article on Grace Cathedral and noticed you deleted a section which you said was "mostly about James Pike and not very complimentary ..." Would you happen to have that url handy ? I looked through the history of the article but am not very good at backtracking wikipedia.

Bishop Pike is sort of a hobby of mine, I was confirmed by him at Grace shortly before he went off to the desert. Not sure if there was a connection :-) (talk) 11:13, 29 March 2016 (UTC)

I removed a 'trivia' section, which included a reference to a Joan Didion essay about Bp. Pike.
As I said on the talk page, (and from memory) it didn't have much to do with Grace Cathedral. Hope this helps!
The removed item read:
Joan Didion wrote about Bishop James Pike and the building of the Grace Cathedral in her collection of essays, The White Album, The Noonday Press/Farrar, Straus and Giroux, NY, 1979.
