Hello there. You added {{refimprove}} to the page. While improving references is always good, all the facts there do have inline references to decent sources. So I wondered what you had in mind. Charles Matthews (talk) 12:23, 21 December 2012 (UTC)


I'm not very experienced with the subject so I didn't know there was sources. Cobalion. Setting Justice everywhere. (talk) 17:50, 22 December 2012 (UTC)


If there are references I'll delete the refimprove template.Cobalion. Setting Justice everywhere. (talk) 17:08, 23 December 2012 (UTC)

A7 speedy doesn't apply here, as it's for real persons only, not fictional. You can take it to AFD though, or redirect as you see fit. Thanks, Altered Walter (talk) 19:38, 27 January 2013 (UTC)

Something to read

Hi Cobalion! When you have a moment, please read Wikipedia:Guidance for younger editors. You may find some of it useful even if you know most of it already. --Demiurge1000 (talk) 19:49, 11 February 2013 (UTC)

Re: Overdue PROD

Thanks for mentioning the overdue PROD Irene Lombard at WP:AN; as you perhaps saw, it's been deleted as a result. In the future, you might get quicker results if you custom-speedy-tagged the article — something like {{db|it's an overdue prod}} would put it in the highly visible Category:Candidates for speedy deletion. Of course, there's nothing wrong with doing what you did, but it would probably be simpler for you to use the speedy tag if you want. Nyttend (talk) 20:10, 11 February 2013 (UTC)

expired PROD

Thank you for letting us know abut the expired PROD, generally you won't need to let us know about those, as listings such as Wikipedia:PRODSUM give those admins (such as myself) who sometimes handle deleting expired PRODs an easy way to find the oldest. It's not unusual (or a problem) for it to take another 24-48 hours for an article with an expired PROD to get deleted, but if there's a special reason that one really needs to be deleted urgently, of course you can leave us a note either where you did or asking another admin who is around. That should be pretty rare. Thanks again, and leave me a note on my talk page if you have any questions, about this or anything else. Have a great week! --j⚛e deckertalk 20:25, 11 February 2013 (UTC)

No idea why I stuck this on the wrong page, my apologies. --j⚛e deckertalk 16:45, 12 February 2013 (UTC)

CSD on expired PRODs

Hi, please do not tag expired PRODs as CSD - they are not eligible and will be deleted when an admin gets around to it, such as in the Azwan Azrul Anuar article. I notice other editors have mentioned about your behaviour with overdue PRODs - please be patient! Regards, GiantSnowman 20:35, 20 February 2013 (UTC)

Okay thanks!I did get recommended to do this by another editor.Cobalion. Setting Justice 11:07, 21 February 2013 (UTC)
Hi, who has told you to do this? Extremely poor advice. GiantSnowman 11:13, 21 February 2013 (UTC)

Thanks, I've asked Nyttend to join this discussion. GiantSnowman 11:31, 21 February 2013 (UTC)
There's nothing wrong with doing this per sé, but there's no need to do it frequently. As GiantSnowman says, someone will get around to it before long; over at CAT:CSD we have links to the daily PROD categories, so we'll normally know that one's waiting to be deleted. We have a {{db-xfd}} template, and that's the basis of why I told you that this was doable — it exists for pages that should have already been deleted at XFD but somehow got overlooked. It wouldn't be a good idea to start tagging lots of pages with it, just like it's not good to tag lots of PROD pages. However, since overdue PRODs and pages that have gotten a "delete" result at XFD both qualify for immediate deletion, a speedy tag isn't inherently inappropriate.

My apology note to JamesBWatson

Hi dude, just to let you know I left an apology note on his talk page for my rude behavior. I'm sorry for everything I didn't mean to call him a bully I was in a bad mood this week about something other thing on my mind abd I took it out on him, I'm very sorry. I'm just leting you two know I'm not a mean person on the outside. On the outside I'm a really nice person in real life. You can go to his talk page and see my apology note if you want to. Peace! ;) (talk) 11:59, 22 February 2013 (UTC)

User sandboxes

Sandboxes are, as I expect you know, pages within userspace used for trial and experimentation. We almost never {{speedy}} delete sandboxes, although we may well warn users that posting will lead to inevitable deletion. IAR is something to be invoked with extreme caution, as by by-passing policy you take full responsibility for decisions made using it, and are sole target for any flak generated. For interest, I have been admin for very nearly six years and have never invoked IAR!--Anthony Bradbury"talk" 19:25, 25 March 2013 (UTC)
