Happy New Year to you and Cambridge[edit]

Thanks for tip off about Hill Boothby et al. I'll keep an eye on the list as it diminishes. I had been working on this list but its a big task. However I prefer to use lists where you can see the blue ones you've done. I'm also working on something else that may interest you - but I'll email. Hoping to see you soon Victuallers (talk) 14:35, 2 January 2017 (UTC)

Not so happy that the page was speedied after I added {{hang on}} and gave a good reason on the talk page, and added to the draft in a way that made clear the notability. Charles Matthews (talk) 16:55, 15 January 2017 (UTC)

(edit conflict) :@1989: Please note the following flaws to the "system" related to draft articles. (1) This and the draft in the previous section were nominated at Articles for Creation, by an IP editor, who made no effort to inform me. (2) The reviewer "inform author" button at AfC does not inform the author. (3) The draft above was deleted (twice) by admins despite having the {{hang on}} template on it.
My conclusion is that the system being used for maintenance of the Draft: namespace is kludgy or broken; User:Sphilbrick seemed to think the buck should be passed back to you. The routing through AfC is artificial and fairly useless.
In any case you seem to be working through that IP number's nominations. I have untagged all of those, to save further time-wasting discussion. I create a large number of articles via drafts. A small proportion are stalled, for whatever reason. I don't think they are cruft, and I would delete any I had actually given up on, myself.Charles Matthews (talk) 06:44, 16 January 2017 (UTC)
