Hi, Camboxer, and welcome to Wikipedia! From the quality of your contributions, I'd guess you've probably been here awhile - if not, I hope you choose to stay. I'd particularly like to thank you for your contributions to the article on Peter Handford; I was really hoping somebody would pick it up and make a real article of it, and now - thanks to you - it's on its way. Thanks!

William James (railway promoter)[edit]

I haven't looked at this page recently, but it's now a quality piece of work—congratulations. Please check my recent edit there: I'm not familiar with the {{PERSONDATA}} template and I hope I haven't broken anything. Regards. --Old Moonraker (talk) 18:58, 17 April 2008 (UTC)

Unreferenced BLPs[edit]

Information.svg Hello Camboxer! Thank you for your contributions. I am a bot alerting you that 1 of the articles that you created is 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 3,015 article backlog. Once the article is adequately referenced, please remove the {{unreferencedBLP}} tag. Here is the article:

Speedy deletion nomination of 2011 in archaeology[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on 2011 in archaeology requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a very short article providing little or no context to the reader. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hang on}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion, or "db", tag; if no such tag exists, then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hang-on tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. →GƒoleyFour← 19:32, 11 January 2011 (UTC)

Years in England[edit]

Spiritofstgeorge recently edited Template:England year nav, removing the heading "Years in the Kingdom of England (927–1706)", adding redlinks to years past 1706, and going on to create new pages at 1707 in England and 1708 in England. At this edit the links from 1706 in England to 1707 in Great Britain and 1708 in Great Britain were altered to point to the new pages instead. I have reverted the changes to the template and 1706 in England and I am proposing that these new "England" pages should be merged to 1707 in Great Britain and 1708 in Great Britain, although so far as I can make out the content of both has simply been copied from those pages, so there may be nothing to merge. I am not sure where this is intended to lead and fear there could be an awful lot of disruption and duplication. Moonraker (talk) 23:54, 15 July 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for your continued good work expanding Years in X articles. My dream is to see all of these people, works, and ideas linked together visually in a timeline, accessible from every page in the encyclopedia. Viriditas (talk) 09:58, 18 June 2012 (UTC)

Leo V[edit]

Dear Camboxer- I suppose you probably should wait until March to post the Leo Villareal light sculpture as it will not be inaugurated until March and it is January- Hypothetically In the words of Steely Dan "California falls into the Sea" could become a reality by March....

November 2013[edit]

Hey Camboxer, I moved the 2011 Nazi loot discovery to 2012 in art, since it turned out that this happened in March 2012. The page itself is now at 2012 Munich artworks discovery. -- (talk) 21:16, 27 November 2013 (UTC)

Wilfred Rhodes[edit]

You added a note to this article on when Rhodes took his 4000th wicket; it was actually the game before the one you said. I've fixed it, but I don't know if you added the same info anywhere else. Cheers! Sarastro1 (talk) 18:12, 30 January 2014 (UTC)

User page[edit]

Hi Camboxer, I was checking links to a page I created, (Charles R. Chickering) and noticed you linked it up with the 1970 in art page where I noticed your name, a red link -- and a Senior Editor II. Couldn't help but put the Senior Editor's star on your user page. If you prefer to remain anonymous please accept my apologies and remove the star. All the best -- Gwillhickers (talk) 18:17, 7 February 2014 (UTC)

Chihiro number[edit]

From your history, I'm pretty sure you were acting in good faith here [1] but unfortunately what you added is a partial hoax. (The actual sequence exists whether or not it's notable but doesn't apparently go by the name.) See WP:ANI#Alleged hoax (mathematical topic) featured on front page for details where I mentioned you.

A page you started (1838 in Scotland) has been reviewed![edit]

Deprecated parameters[edit]

Thanks for your edits; however, you are changing valid dates in citations to invalid ones by using |month=. That parameter has been deprecated, so where the citation shows |date=November 2012, that is correct. As an example, you changed the 1882 in the United Kingdom article from:

  • {{cite journal|first=Alan|last=McEwen|title=Death and Destruction: the collapse of Newlands Mill chimney|journal=Vintage Spirit|issue=124 |pages=60–3 |date=November 2012}}
McEwen, Alan (November 2012). "Death and Destruction: the collapse of Newlands Mill chimney". Vintage Spirit (124): 60–3.  to:
  • {{cite journal|first=Alan|last=McEwen|title=Death and Destruction: the collapse of Newlands Mill chimney|journal=Vintage Spirit|issue=124|pages=60–3|month=November|year=2012}}
McEwen, Alan (November 2012). "Death and Destruction: the collapse of Newlands Mill chimney". Vintage Spirit (124): 60–3. 

As you can see, your change resulted in an error being displayed. It also dumped the page into a cleanup category with about 23,000 other pages. (So you're not alone.) Just a friendly "heads-up" to avoid these errors in the future. Thanks.—D'Ranged 1 VTalk 05:16, 29 May 2014 (UTC)

@D'Ranged 1: That was perfect. For how long you have been fixing these parameters? Today, there are thouands of pages with incorrect parameters. OccultZone (Talk) 11:17, 29 May 2014 (UTC)
OccultZone Not very long; started a few weeks ago but haven't been very diligent; I mostly do it when I have nothing else to do. It's tedious; I'm a registered AWB user and am still learning its ropes; hopefully I can get that set up to help me out.—D'Ranged 1 VTalk 17:21, 29 May 2014 (UTC)
I just realized that unless you have error messages turned on in your css; you wouldn't see an error message. That's stupid, imo. Editors should be alerted to errors to avoid making them in the future. If you're not seeing an error message above, add the following to your User:OccultZone/common.css page: .citation-comment {display: inline !important;} /* show all Citation Style 1 error messages */. Thanks!—D'Ranged 1 VTalk 21:27, 30 May 2014 (UTC)
@D'Ranged 1: That's good, good use of AWB can teach a lot. I try to look at the scripts that others have made, and imply them on my editing. Hardly anyone to help out there, but when you try yourself you learn better. OccultZone (Talk) 06:25, 2 June 2014 (UTC)

Date formats[edit]

Thanks for clarifying the sourcing with this edit. I am less sure why it is that you are changing the date format, though. - Sitush (talk) 09:24, 23 December 2014 (UTC)
