Wikipedia:Featured list candidates/List of winners of the London Marathon/archive1[edit]

Hi Crzycheetah. You commented at the above FLC a few days ago. I've addressed your concerns, and the page formatting has been corrected. Best, Matthewedwards :  Chat  04:06, 29 May 2009 (UTC)

List of members of the International Ice Hockey Federation[edit]

Hello, I just thought I'd give you a heads up that I made a change to the page. I switched the template I used {{IIHFteams}} so that it only includes blue links, and doesn't link everything else. However, the best part that if someone created a new page right now, it would automatically be linked. What so you think? -- Scorpion0422 23:53, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Featured list candidates/List of Philippine–American War Medal of Honor recipients/archive1[edit]

Thanks for the review and I fixed all of your concerns except 1 or 2 that I need some additional input on. Could you please swing back by and take a look. Thanks again.--Kumioko (talk) 13:22, 16 June 2009 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Featured list candidates/List of Hot 100 number-one singles of 2008 (Canada)/archive2[edit]

Do you still think it should be merged? Dabomb87 (talk) 15:20, 24 June 2009 (UTC)

I never thought about merging the Canadian list. I just think the layout of these number-one lists needs to be tweaked a little. The table, for example, is way longer than needed.--Crzycheetah 16:46, 24 June 2009 (UTC)
Could you comment there please? It's lacking reviews, and if you could improve the table that would be great. Dabomb87 (talk) 00:36, 2 July 2009 (UTC)

I've added this user right to your account because, well, it seemed silly for you not to have it with your record of article and category creation. Regards, BencherliteTalk 02:25, 1 July 2009 (UTC)

Sources[edit]

Hi Crzycheetah. I saw one of your comments at the NHL draft list regarding sourcing from just primary sources. While I was travelling, the following lists were promoted using just primary sources:

Would you care to nominate these lists for demotion? The Rambling Man (talk) 11:28, 4 July 2009 (UTC)

See my reply at Matthewedwards (talk · contribs) talk page. I do think that there might be the possibility of using third-party sources in the female list, as there might be analysis/coverage over gender disparities, etc. Dabomb87 (talk) 14:14, 4 July 2009 (UTC)
See my continuing discussion there too. Regardless of the merits of one particular list, this whole subject needs proper discussion. The Rambling Man (talk) 23:47, 4 July 2009 (UTC)

List of Test cricket grounds[edit]

Crzycheetah, your merger of the tables has resulted in the loss of information about the ends and also the various "see also" links. There appears to be missing detail in the footnotes. I think I'm going to need to revert it back to the version before the one you modified and then merge it more carefully so as to not lose useful information. And, somewhat unfortunately, the list does not actually sort by date, as it was supposed to. Just wanted to let you know. The Rambling Man (talk) 13:01, 25 July 2009 (UTC)

List of Los Angeles County Metro Rail stations[edit]

Timeline of Macintosh models[edit]

What do you think about the format of the tables in the above timeline. I think it could be vastly improved, but I'm not sure how. Feedback is welcome at Wikipedia:Featured list removal candidates/Timeline of Macintosh models/archive1. Dabomb87 (talk) 19:11, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

Geography of Andorra[edit]

Hey, nice work [1]. I was thinking there's a potential WP:Did you know? editor's reward in waiting if we can expand the article to 15000 bytes (double the length it is now) by Sep 3rd to make it eligible for DYK (the rule is 5x expansion in five days). It's going well so far, but I could use a bit of help. Interested? 85.94.186.91 (talk) 19:23, 1 September 2009 (UTC)

List of international cricket centuries by Ricky Ponting[edit]

I know you've had reservations about these type of list before; can you comment on this one? See Wikipedia:Featured list candidates/List of international cricket centuries by Ricky Ponting/archive1. Dabomb87 (talk) 00:30, 3 September 2009 (UTC)

Hi, thanks for your comments. I suggest keeping List of international cricket centuries by Ricky Ponting and then creating Achievements of Ricky Ponting for all other records like at Achievements of Sachin Tendulkar. Then List of Test awards for Ricky Ponting could be merged into Achievements of Ricky Ponting along with other jargon. It would be a lot easier to do this.

Armenian help needed[edit]

Hello Crzycheetah, I'm contacting you because we need some Armenian translators to help with the deployment of the new VisualEditor on hy.wikipedia. There are help pages, user guides, and description pages that need translating, as well as the interface itself. The translating work is going on over on MediaWiki: Translation Central. I also need assistance with a personal message for the Armenian Wikipedians. If you are able to help in any way, either reply here, or head over to TranslationCentral. Thanks for your time, PEarley (WMF) (talk) 16:47, 17 August 2013 (UTC)

Article Feedback Tool update[edit]

Hey Crzycheetah. I'm contacting you because you're involved in the Article Feedback Tool in some way, either as a previous newsletter recipient or as an active user of the system. As you might have heard, a user recently anonymously disabled the feedback tool on 2,000 pages. We were unable to track or prevent this due to the lack of logging feature in AFT5. We're deeply sorry for this, as we know that quite a few users found the software very useful, and were using it on their articles.

We've now re-released the software, with the addition of a logging feature and restrictions on the ability to disable. Obviously, we're not going to automatically re-enable it on each article—we don't want to create a situation where it was enabled by users who have now moved on, and feedback would sit there unattended—but if you're interested in enabling it for your articles, it's pretty simple to do. Just go to the article you want to enable it on, click the "request feedback" link in the toolbox in the sidebar, and AFT5 will be enabled for that article.

Again, we're very sorry about this issue; hopefully it'll be smooth sailing after this :). If you have any questions, just drop them at the talkpage. Thanks! Okeyes (WMF) 21:43, 1 September 2013 (UTC)

Requesting Guidance[edit]

Hello. I'm new to the wiki community and would like to start working on editing the property insurance page with the help and collaboration of more experienced contributors. Do you think you can help me? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Lgkkitkat (talkcontribs) 16:14, 9 May 2014 (UTC)

Requesting Specific Guidance[edit]

Perhaps my initial request was too vague. There is a recommendation that the Chartis article be merged with AIG's page. I think the Property Insurance page could be strengthened with parts of AIG's page since it shows how current events and emerging trends effect it's regulation by the government. Hurricane Sandy and updated payouts of the WTC are not on the Property Insurance page either - which to me seem to be relevant. Do you think adding more information would be beneficial to the Property Insurance page? If so would you be interested in collaborating what facts should be included? Any response would be kindly appreciated. Thank you.Lgkkitkat (talk) 17:56, 14 May 2014 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Disambiguation link notification for August 29[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Kim Basinger filmography, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Nadine. 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.

Squad[edit]

I saw your conversation with Peejay long ago. I was one of the editors who previously removed those players from the table but i changed my mind. Some players like Will Keane, Pereira played the exhibition games. They were IN the squad. And Peejay clearly did numerous reversions so I think he still follows the idea that those players should stay in the table.HugoRicciLeah (talk) 18:28, 31 August 2016 (UTC)

The bolded word should be were. They are not there anymore.Cheetah (talk) 19:14, 31 August 2016 (UTC)

September 2016[edit]

Information icon Please do not remove content or templates from pages on Wikipedia, as you did to List of Dad's Army episodes, without giving a valid reason for the removal in the edit summary. Your content removal does not appear constructive and has been reverted. If you only meant to make a test edit, please use the sandbox for that. Thank you. Dl2000 (talk) 02:00, 7 September 2016 (UTC)

Again, it is asked that you explain why you've removed the {{use dmy dates}} from List of Dad's Army episodes, and article that uses dmy dates. Please discuss on the talk page, or somewhere, before removing the template again, including via undo or reversion. Also, your warning to DI2000 is improper, seeing as they added a template rather than removed it. ~Cheers, TenTonParasol 15:19, 7 September 2016 (UTC)

Invite to the African Destubathon[edit]

Hi. You may be interested in participating in the African Destubathon which starts on October 15. Africa currently has over 37,000 stubs and badly needs a quality improvement editathon/contest to flesh out basic stubs. There are proposed substantial prizes to give to editors who do the most articles, and planned smaller prizes for doing to most destubs for each of the 53 African countries, so should be enjoyable! So it would be a good chance to win something for improving stubs on African sportspeople, including footballers, athletes, Olympians and Paralympians etc, particularly female ones, but also male. Even if contests aren't your thing we would be grateful if you could consider destubbing a few African articles during the drive to help the cause and help reduce the massive 37,000 + stub count, of which many are rated high importance (think Regions of countries etc). If you're interested in competing or just loosely contributing a few expanded articles on African Paralympians, Olympians and committees etc, please add your name to the Contestants/participants section. Diversity of work from a lot of people will make this that bit more special. Thanks. --MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 21:13, 6 October 2016 (UTC)

Re: comments at FLCs[edit]

Hey there, I've been noticing several comments left by you at FLCs about what the director/delegate should do regarding specific nominations. Frankly, the limiting factor is not that we are unable to determine consensus or tell if an FLRC has been there too long or count up the supporters on a list and need someone to tell us what to do, it's whether we have the time right then to process the nominations, and it's not much help to let us know what you think we should do- for example, it would have been more useful on the Ariel Award list to ping the supporters from the first nomination to re-support, then to just tell us that we should count them again anyway. If you are interested in acting as a delegate, please sign up at the 2016 FLC election to possibly become one! --PresN 12:38, 11 October 2016 (UTC)

Hey! I just reminded you RE FLRC, thought you had forgotten it. As for that Ariel page, I was worried that you would archive it due to the lack of supports, so I just updated it. Anyway, hopefully TRM will come on board and settle down everything.--Cheetah (talk) 22:47, 11 October 2016 (UTC)

Asian 10,000 Challenge invite[edit]

Hi. The Wikipedia:WikiProject Asia/The 10,000 Challenge has recently started, based on the UK/Ireland Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge and Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The 10,000 Challenge. The idea is not to record every minor edit, but to create a momentum to motivate editors to produce good content improvements and creations and inspire people to work on more countries than they might otherwise work on. There's also the possibility of establishing smaller country or regional challenges for places like South East Asia, Japan/China or India etc, much like Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic). For this to really work we need diversity and exciting content and editors from a broad range of countries regularly contributing. At some stage we hope to run some contests to benefit Asian content, a destubathon perhaps, aimed at reducing the stub count would be a good place to start, based on the current Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The Africa Destubathon which has produced near 200 articles in just three days. If you would like to see this happening for Asia, and see potential in this attracting more interest and editors for the country/countries you work on please sign up and being contributing to the challenge! This is a way we can target every country of Asia, and steadily vastly improve the encyclopedia. We need numbers to make this work so consider signing up as a participant! Thank you. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 01:31, 20 October 2016 (UTC)

December 2016[edit]

If you continue to disrupt Wikipedia, you may be blocked from editing. Alex2006 (talk) 17:47, 13 December 2016 (UTC)

Alert[edit]

Commons-emblem-notice.svg This message contains important information about an administrative situation on Wikipedia. It does not imply any misconduct regarding your own contributions to date.

Please carefully read this information:

The Arbitration Committee has authorised discretionary sanctions to be used for pages regarding Armenia, Azerbaijan, or related conflicts, a topic which you have edited. The Committee's decision is here.

Discretionary sanctions is a system of conduct regulation designed to minimize disruption to controversial topics. This means uninvolved administrators can impose sanctions for edits relating to the topic that do not adhere to the purpose of Wikipedia, our standards of behavior, or relevant policies. Administrators may impose sanctions such as editing restrictions, bans, or blocks. This message is to notify you that sanctions are authorised for the topic you are editing. Before continuing to edit this topic, please familiarise yourself with the discretionary sanctions system. Don't hesitate to contact me or another editor if you have any questions.

Armenia[edit]

Please refrain to edit disruptively on Armenia. Besides CIA, you removed other reliable sources. Discussions about the geographic location of Armenia took place many times on the Talk page, and you can find them on the archives, which I invite you to read. I kindly advice you that in case of another disruptive edit about this topic I will be force to report you to an administrator. Thanks, Alex2006 (talk) 17:57, 13 December 2016 (UTC)

Retaliation templating[edit]

Hi, Crzycheetah. To shoot back the same template to somebody who just alerted you to discretionary sanctions, as you did here, is poor form. The discretionary sanctions template is for information, as the template itself clearly states; it's obvious that Alex2006 already has this information, since he gave it to you — isn't it? Don't you agree? In consequence, shunting the same info back to him can only be seen as harassment. Moreover, I see Alex2006 warned you above about specific removal of specific sources at Armenia. So you shot back a warning about using unreliable sources to him, in a rather pointless way, since you gave no specifics. Please remember that Wikipedia is not a battlefield. Uninvolved administrators, such as me, are watching the article, and if you edit uncollaboratively, such as sending harassing warnings, you could be sanctioned. Thank you.

Hi Bishonen, that information is also placed on the talk page of Armenia, where I made a post stating why I believe that a particular source is unreliable. It was obvious that I was aware of it. Sending that information to me, what Alex2006 did, was pointless. I assumed then that pointless posts are the norm now, so I just continued what he started. Thank you for telling me that Alex2006 apparently harassed me. I'll keep that in mind.--Cheetah (talk) 02:48, 15 December 2016 (UTC)

I'd like to invite you to join the Investment WikiProject. There are a lot of Investment related articles on Wikipedia that could use a little attention, and I hope this project can help organize an effort to improve them. So please, take a look and if you like what you see, help get this project off the ground and a few Investment pages into the front ranks of Wikipedia articles. Thanks!
