Good Job[edit]

Good job expanding mythology pages! Haukur 08:38, 12 May 2006 (UTC)

I'd also like to congratulate you on a job well done, Cerdic, especially your great work on the Numbers in Norse mythology article. King Wagga 17:56, 3 November 2007 (UTC)
Thank you, King. I appreciate that. Cerdic 18:54, 3 November 2007 (UTC)

Barnstar[edit]

You keep showing up on my watchlist and you're always doing excellent work - I put a barnstar on your user page :) Haukur 21:53, 27 May 2006 (UTC)

Mythology articles[edit]

Many thanks for your message :) But as Haukur previously said, you've done some very useful work too. Sigo 05:12, 6 November 2006 (UTC)

And you’ve been doing quite a good job again this week, especially with Skaði. Some articles really needed to be rewritten. But you may be wrong (and you may be right too) about that. The text (Vafþrúðnismál) uses the word hundrað, which can mean both 100 and 120. In some translations you find 100, in others 120. I don't think there's any way to know. Sigo 22:02, 26 January 2007 (UTC)
That's certainly good to know then, and I appreciate you bringing it to my attention. My source was Faulkes (verified by Brodeur) and Larrington, but if it can mean both then I think a good compromise can be reached by including what you stated in the article, so please feel free to edit it accordingly. Cerdic 17:17, 27 January 2007 (UTC)
That's fine the way it is. Hundrað only has a symbolic meaning. It doesn't really matter how much it is, so I think "hundred" is the best translation. Sigo 19:13, 27 January 2007 (UTC)

Slid[edit]

You have created a redirect called "Slid". However the destination article of that redirect makes no mention of the word "slid". Normally, it should be understood from the body of the article why a particular redirect goes there. Please add this explanation or remove the redirect. I want to create an article about "Subscriber Line Identifier" whose acronym is "SLID". See: http://www.area-codes.com/area-code-faq.asp

Slíd is mentioned in the third paragraph as the name of one among a group of rivers. I made Slid (without the diacritic) a redirect since it's a common Anglicized spelling, but it's a non-issue to me so if you want to create your article then do what you need to do.

Regarding edits to List of commercial brands of cider[edit]

Thank you for contributing to Wikipedia, Cerdic! However, your edit here was reverted by an automated bot that attempts to remove spam from Wikipedia. If you were trying to insert a good link, please accept my creator's apologies, but note that the link you added, matching rule beeradvocate\.com, is on my list of links to remove and probably shouldn't be included in Wikipedia. Please read Wikipedia's external links guidelines for more information, and consult my list of frequently-reverted sites. For more information about me, see my FAQ page. Thanks!

Hatheg[edit]

A "{{prod}}" template has been added to the article Hatheg, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but the article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice explains why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may contest the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page. Also, please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.

Danke[edit]

Thanks for catching those two goofy edits on the Glasses page and undoing them. I swear if one doesn't keep an eye on an article at least one a day, this stuff piles up quickly. Good looking out. Reason turns rancid 01:28, 24 October 2007 (UTC)

You're welcome. There's quite a narrow sphere of articles I contribute to on a regular basis but when a vandal intrudes upon my territory I tend to zero in and follow them around. It helps that the "Compare selected versions" function makes it nearly impossible for them to get away with it. Cerdic 01:46, 24 October 2007 (UTC)

Hi. Could you please look at Hábrók? I'm unable to find any online sources for it and your own edit summary states that there aren't any. Could this possibly be a hoax? ErikTheBikeMan (talk) 02:55, 1 January 2009 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Nachtfalke[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 Nachtfalke requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a band or musician, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, you can place a request here. Epeefleche (talk) 02:39, 21 March 2014 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Stormwarrior[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Stormwarrior has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Searches found nothing at all to even suggest minimal general notability.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.
