Talk:Mint imperial[edit]

Please explain how you came to your conclusion that my article was "patent nonsense" on the said page. Many thanks. Redrocketboy 19:52, 2 December 2007 (UTC)

OK, thanks. I did have a read of the page quickly before I created anything, but must have missed it. Redrocketboy 20:08, 2 December 2007 (UTC)

Marking pages for speedy deletion[edit]

Hi. Just a reminder - Do not mark pages for speedy deletion under criteria G1 (like you did with Numb nutz) unless the text is "unsalvageably incoherent" (Example: oarjiaorjaowrjeaowrj). If you have any questions, feel free to leave them on my talk page. Thanks, Rjd0060 20:39, 2 December 2007 (UTC)

Not a problem. That article would have been better suited for an A3 tag, as it was very short, and provided no encyclopedic context. There is a good table that explains each template here. However, for detailed information about each speedy deletion criteria, see WP:CSD#Criteria. - Rjd0060 20:51, 2 December 2007 (UTC)


Hi Cold Phoenix - could you please not make edits to pages while they're showing an inuse tag as you just did at Caproni Ca.114? You waited no more than one second from the moment the tag was in place. This kind of thing could cause an editor to lose a considerable amount of work... fortunately in this case, I was able to retrieve the article with the back button! Cheers --Rlandmann 20:43, 2 December 2007 (UTC)

Yes, I know that you weren't the first to edit the article after I added the "inuse" tag, but when an article shows an "inuse" tag, it means that nobody should make changes to it (including adding extra tags) for several hours, since this causes an edit conflict. I also left a comment on the other editor's talk page. No harm done - but please be careful in future. --Rlandmann 21:04, 2 December 2007 (UTC)
Just be careful Cold Phoenix. Don't worry, you haven't broken any policies or anything like that. Just a simple courtesy. I am sure the user just wanted to politely tell you this... - Rjd0060 21:12, 2 December 2007 (UTC)

Speedy deletions[edit]

Hi. It seems you have been having some problems CSD tagging, and that is okay. The borderline between the different guidelines can be rather thin, so don't take anything out on yourself. In addition to the suggestions mentioned above, look at User talk:Cremepuff222/Archives/March/2007#Templates. *Cremepuff222* 22:24, 2 December 2007 (UTC)

Music for Piano (Cage)[edit]

Hello. You have just edited the article, likning all years. I'm going to revert the edit, since per WP:DATE one should only link to single years "if it is likely to deepen readers' understanding of a topic", and that is clearly not the case here. Generally, single years/months are not linked at all. I have recently been through a peer review of one of my other articles and had to remove all single year links (search for "single years" on that page, you'll see a comment from one of the more knowledgeable people here) and I don't want that to happen again :) I just thought I'd explain this here, instead of a small blurb in the edit summary of my revert, to avoid conflict.

Representatives and Senators[edit]

I like your articles on congresspeople. You really shouldn't begin a sentence with 'it should be noted,' unless you're revealing something profound or secret...not a person's city of residence. Czolgolz (talk) 21:36, 4 December 2007 (UTC)

I think I mistook you for someone else. My apologies. Czolgolz (talk) 21:42, 4 December 2007 (UTC)

Alan McDonald (mountaineer)[edit]

If you will forgive criticism from a fellow recent changes patroller, I think you were too gentle with this article - you only gave it an "unreferenced" tag, but it seemed to me a case for a WP:CSD#A7 speedy delete "Article about a person, group, company, or web content that does not indicate the importance of the subject". JohnCD (talk) 22:39, 5 December 2007 (UTC)

Hi, I saw your reply on JohnCD's talk page, Cold Phoenix. I want to remind you to be bold in editing, and don't feel bad if you make a mistake here or there. There are enough patrollers to notice your mistakes. Don't hesitate to ask me any questions! *Cremepuff222* 22:51, 5 December 2007 (UTC)

Tagging bio articles[edit]

Hey, if you're tagging biography articles, don't tag them as WP:CSD#G3, tag them as WP:CSD#A7, which is more appropriate. Kwsn (Ni!) 02:24, 7 December 2007 (UTC)

Not really, it's a simple mistake to make when doing new page patrol for the first time. You just tagged a few articles as vandalism though they really weren't. Kwsn (Ni!) 02:30, 7 December 2007 (UTC)


I just created a page for Richard Scarry's Best Word Book Ever. It had two references on the bottom of the page as I wrote it. What maore references do you need?

Joaquín Torres García/Translation[edit]

!Holá Warfry!

?Será que tu no puedes hacer una tradución del artículo antes hacer una publicación? Digo isto porque el artículo pudede ser eliminado, mas tente hacer su tradución, ?OK? (!no se esqueças del artículo!).

--Cold Phoenix (talk) 01:49, 15 December 2007 (UTC)

This is part of The Spanish Translation of the "Week". You can read it at the heading, although now it is a bit more difficult to spot thanks to the expert tag. The actual article is here: Joaquín Torres García. Once the new one has been translated, they will be merged.--Wafry (talk) 01:54, 15 December 2007 (UTC)

Tagged article[edit]

Hi, just for your information: the Nick Madsen article that you just tagged with all kinds of cleanup tags, was a copy of (part of) Basilica of San Francesco d'Assisi, so I deleted it. In the article, there was no mention of any Nick Madsen at all, so I wonder what was going on there :-) --JoanneB 19:50, 16 December 2007 (UTC)

No problem! It has never been tagged for speedy deletion, I just came across it and deleted it right away. I hope you'll have a good time at the English Wikipedia! --JoanneB 20:17, 16 December 2007 (UTC)
Are you sure you mean policitics and not policies? There are plenty of pages about policy, this is a good start: Wikipedia:Community_Portal. Politics are a bit more tricky, as far as I know there are no real pages about how to deal with that but it's ofte best to stay out of it as much as possible :-) --JoanneB 21:48, 16 December 2007 (UTC)

Federico urzi‎ tag[edit]

I removed the unencyclopedic template tag you had place on the title artciel and replaced it with a speedy delete tag, reason=patent nonsense (WP:CSD#G1). I felt this tag was more appropriate. Manderson198(sprech)/(contribs) 20:48, 16 December 2007 (UTC)

It looked like someone was just writing about themselves, which people do a lot :). Manderson198(sprech)/(contribs) 20:56, 16 December 2007 (UTC)
Very true. Cheers mate. Manderson198(sprech)/(contribs) 21:01, 16 December 2007 (UTC)

Bob Ptacek[edit]

Thanks for your concern. I was in the middle of creating the Bob Ptacek page that I started with an infobox. I have removed your tags.--TonyTheTiger (t/c/bio/WP:CHICAGO/WP:LOTD) 16:37, 18 December 2007 (UTC)

Heath hammerlong[edit]

I replaced your "unencyclopedic" tag with {{db-nn}} - this one seemed to me a clear case for a speedy delete for non-notability. "In the making" = he hasn't made it yet! JohnCD (talk) 13:54, 20 December 2007 (UTC)
