idioms[edit]

Here is an idiom source you can use to update the citations, a simple google search will also yield sources. --UnQuébécois (talk) 19:52, 7 January 2012 (UTC)

I asked for help with the task, not for a lesson on how to look them up. I have done virtually all the ones moved from the list up to the table. Doing it right is time consuming. In my opinion it takes more than a simple google search. Why don't you try capturing the history of the phrase and develop a meaningful definition instead of using the ones already given, they are too short and some of them are just wrong. Along the way you might learn a little of the history behind the phrase which can be added as a note. So, this is the nature of the help I am asking for.
BTW if you don't fix the two you added I will demote them back to the list them. -- Cdw ♥'s (talk) 04:08, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

A-B-C-D-E, etc.[edit]

Do you have some sort of objection to listing things in alphabetical order? A couple of days ago, I went to the trouble of rearranging the list of closed programs at Aspen Education Group in order to place it in alphabetical order, and now I see that you scrambled that list and the formerly alphabetized list of active programs. Why???? --Orlady (talk) 14:16, 5 March 2012 (UTC)

I listed them in the order of closure, since that is the title of the section I thought it best. BTW we seem to work on some of the same articles maybe we could collaborate? Thank you fro all the fine work you do. -- Cdw ♥'s (talk) 14:50, 5 March 2012 (UTC)

Wikipedia Help Survey[edit]

Hi there, my name's Peter Coombe and I'm a Wikimedia Community Fellow working on a project to improve Wikipedia's help system. At the moment I'm trying to learn more about how people use and find the current help pages. If you could help by filling out this brief survey about your experiences, I'd be very grateful. It should take less than 10 minutes, and your responses will not be tied to your username in any way. Thank you for your time, the wub (talk) 18:08, 14 June 2012 (UTC) (Delivered using Global message delivery)

CDW: love your signing: (loves music) — it is on my clipboard. To others, the HELP survey is now closed, FYI. Charles Edwin Shipp (talk) 22:34, 19 August 2012 (UTC)

July 2012 Study of authors of health-related Wikipedia pages[edit]

Dear Author/Cdw1952

My name is Nuša Farič and I am a Health Psychology MSc student at the University College London (UCL). I am currently running a quantitative study entitled Who edits health-related Wikipedia pages and Why? I am interested in the editorial experience of people who edit health-related Wikipedia pages. I am interested to learn more about the authors of health-related pages on Wikipedia and what motivations they have for doing so. I am currently contacting the authors of randomly selected articles and I noticed that someone at this address recently edited an article on Psychotherapy. I would like to ask you a few questions about you and your experience of editing the above mentioned article and or other health-related articles. If you would like more information about the project, please visit my user page (http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Hydra_Rain) and if interested, please reply via my talk page or e-mail me on nusa.faric.11@ucl.ac.uk. Also, others interested in the study may contact me! If I do not hear back from you I will not contact this account again. Thank you very much in advance. Hydra Rain (talk) 19:19, 19 July 2012 (UTC)

"When" can't be used to start a sentence?[edit]

You made this assertion on a talk page of an article about a work by F. Engels. Does that mean that the Declaration of Independence is poorly written as that is the first word of that iconic document? "When in the course of human events . . ." Tom Cod (talk) 18:43, 2 January 2013 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (File:NWAC logo.png)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:NWAC logo.png. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Hazard-Bot (talk) 04:03, 13 January 2013 (UTC)

Pierre[edit]

Then how about putting some meat on the article? And a category? I have no idea what the company even is since you didn't form a complete sentence once. Every hit I found mentioned it only in affiliation with Husqvarna. Please put some effort into what you create; don't just make a one-sentence, category-less, context-less stub.

Disambiguation link notification for August 18[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Topanga Banjo•Fiddle Contest, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages John Hickman and Frank Hamilton (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.
