Yes, you are right. SB is very conservative about making changes, especially to date linkage. Thanks for answering the other query. Rich Farmbrough, 15:08 26 October 2007 (GMT).

Godzilla question[edit]

As you were one of the last few people who edited the Godzilla article, I am hoping that you might know something about the series. Could you please go here to see my question on that article's talk page and give your opinion? Thanks. - LA @ 19:39, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

Sorry. Although I have seen some of the films—and I love them—I'm far from being an expert. My edit was one of a large number where I changed the name of the band Blue O/Öyster Cult from "O" to "Ö" in various Wikipedia articles (which is easy with the german keyboard I'm using.) Thus, my Godzilla (series) edit is actually not much related to the monster. --Cyfal (talk) 20:48, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

Nagasaki, Nagasaki[edit]

Hi! Please see the order of the languages on the Main Page. Japanese is 日本語/Nihongo. So it is listed after Nederlands. I know that the two-letter language abbreviations is also acceptable. But I edit per the Main Page. Oda Mari (talk) 06:19, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

Excuse me/sumimasen! You are right, it is better to keep the same order of interlanguage links in Nagasaki, Nagasaki and in the Main page. But this good idea did not come to my mind when I made my edit... I updated these links because I found Nagasaki on the page here on this page so I tried to update both the French and the English Wikipedia article with identical links. Therefore, I entered in both Wikipedias the interlanguage links in the same order. However, only on the French mainpage, 日本語 is placed before the netherlands. Thank you for correcting me. I will now modify the order in Nagasaki, Nagasaki somewhat further, because I noticed, that also other interlanguage links are not in the correct order, e.g., simple english is on top in the Main Page, but currently not on top in Nagasaki, Nagasaki. Thank you --Cyfal (talk) 17:47, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

Just a shout[edit]

I'm finally here. Let's see if this weekend will bring one or two new articles... --HexaChord (talk) 19:58, 22 February 2008 (UTC)

Hello and welcome! --Cyfal (talk) 19:59, 22 February 2008 (UTC)

East End of London[edit]

Your vandalism revert has truncated the article - please have a look! Pterre (talk) 21:20, 23 February 2008 (UTC)

Thank you very much for your notice! I must admit I have no idea what happened – maybe I had accidentally closed a tab in my browser when the reversion was still in progress? I have recreated the correct version now[1]. I will now check my edits of today to check whether this was the only case. --Cyfal (talk) 21:28, 23 February 2008 (UTC)
No, the others are ok... I will watch this somewhat in future. --Cyfal (talk) 21:36, 23 February 2008 (UTC)

WikiProject Germany Invitation[edit]

Coat of arms of Germany.svg

Hello, Cyfal! I'd like to call your attention to the WikiProject Germany and the German-speaking Wikipedians' notice board. I hope their links, sub-projects and discussions are interesting and even helpful to you. If not, I hope that new ones will be.

--Zeitgespenst (talk) 05:42, 10 March 2008 (UTC)

Thank you. I will take a look at these pages regularly in future, seems interesting. --Cyfal (talk) 08:48, 10 March 2008 (UTC)


Thanks! I must have missed that. I seem to have misspelled it during a Google search. Good job. :) Jmlk17 21:31, 18 March 2008 (UTC)

No problem – I was just trying to formulate a message for your talk page to draw your attention to my modification, but you were quicker ;-) With all those vandalism, it's easy to overlock one of the modifications that are only wrong layout but factually correct... --Cyfal (talk) 21:37, 18 March 2008 (UTC)

Re: Interwiki sort order[edit]

I'm using AWB, so if it is wrong it is a bug in the code. BJTalk 02:35, 19 March 2008 (UTC)

Confusing I don't actually know why that happened when editing with AWB. I personally put them in order by the two-letter abbreviation, but AWB does not - they use some other order that I've never understood and may in fact be the order on that Meta page. Since you acknowledged that both sortings are acceptable, why did you revert? Anyway… -Justin (koavf)TCM
Yes, reverting was not necessary, but I think the other order is somewhat nicer because the languagues then are then ordered alphabetically for the reader of the page, not for the editor. (I got into this task by the Nagasaki, Nagasaki diskussion here on my talk page, the previous contribution of Bjweeks was the answer to this.) Thanks for answering --Cyfal (talk) 22:06, 24 March 2008 (UTC)


Thanks for fixing the little typo on my userpage, and no problem about the accidental revert on Boxing. I've done that on numerous occasions myself :) FusionMix 21:25, 28 March 2008 (UTC)


Thank you - your revisions give a more balanced and agreeable section of text. Contaldo80 (talk) 09:38, 7 April 2008 (UTC)


How do I undo multiple edits by one person? Joedaddy09 (talk) 07:30, 10 May 2008 (UTC)

I have installed the script Twinkle for my User Cyfal, so this gives me some more "buttons" to do such things easyly.
However, without such tools it's also possible: simply go to the revision history, then click to the date of the last unvandalised version. Then this version is displayed, then click on "edit this page" and save it without any changes.

AfD nomination of Bill Blankenship[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

An article that you have been involved in editing, Bill Blankenship, has been listed for deletion. If you are interested in the deletion discussion, please participate by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Bill Blankenship. Thank you. Do you want to opt out of receiving this notice?

Thank you, but I only reverted some vandalism in this article, I have no clue whether Blankenship is notable or not. --Cyfal (talk) 15:23, 26 June 2008 (UTC)

The Concentration City[edit]

Whilst on the topic of J G Ballard, I don't suppose you've read many others of his short stories and want to help create articles? I was on the path to making most of the articles listed on The Complete Short Stories of J. G. Ballard: Volume 1, but I can't find my copy of the book itself to continue reading! ArdClose (talk) 16:00, 26 June 2008 (UTC)

No, sorry, it was I long time ago when I read The Concentration City in a book I borrowed from a library (BTW, in German). However, when I read your article, I remembered the story again. --Cyfal (talk) 16:10, 26 June 2008 (UTC)

Basket weavers' museum[edit]

The first link says there is a website, but there is no link to a website. Does not show much of anything, fails as a reliable source, fails to verify anything. The second one says it exists, but no addreess or information , and says tours are available if you arrange by phone, Sounds like a collection in someone's home. No notability, not a verification. You are quite withing your rights to remove the PROD notice. If the prod stays off, I will probably nominate it for AFD. Thanks for searching for references; please add them to the article. Edison (talk) 01:13, 16 August 2008 (UTC)

I already added the second link to Basket Knitter Museum of the Romas. The first one I only mentioned because of the article's name. I have no problems with an AFD, I think this is better than the PROD because we may get some more discussion from this. (However, I can't contribute to it because I know not more than these two google hits I found.) --Cyfal (talk) 02:10, 16 August 2008 (UTC)

Your edit to TylerPuetz[edit]

You identified the last edit as vandalism, because of the inactivity note. I would like if you didn't do that; but sorry about not being on my username.

Please reply on my talk page, if necessary.

Not a big deal, I was really busy, and didn't take the time to log in, about the IP, I share it with some other people which might not be the best people on Wikipedia... - Tyler Puetz (talk) 17:54, 16 September 2008 (UTC)


You're best -- Luigibob (talk) 00:31, 20 September 2008 (UTC)

Of Of[edit]

Thank you for spotting the pair of 'of's' in the Frederic Forrest article. I'm always on the lookout for such errors in articles. It doesn't help any if I make them myself! Regards -- Hurrmic (talk) 00:42, 23 September 2008 (UTC)

I've used a Google search so therefore I found a lot of these "of of", I've tried to fix some of them – thank you! --Cyfal (talk) 07:05, 23 September 2008 (UTC)
Thanks also for finding and correcting this in David Owen Dodd. Truthanado (talk) 02:06, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

Bot Builder Award[edit]

Thank you for the award! It's always nice to be appreciated. BTW, did you try purging to fix the not-showing-up issue? Anomie 02:18, 2 October 2008 (UTC)

No, I thought reloading the page was enough – obvisously not... thanks for the hint on purging! --Cyfal (talk) 06:18, 2 October 2008 (UTC)

Können Sie vielleicht mir helfen?[edit]

Hi, I've noticed your useful contributions to William Blake and also noticed that you were a native speaker of German. I'm trying to get native speakers to help me with my translation of de:Inuit-Kultur. If you have time, please look at User:Lithoderm/Inuit culture- any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Lithoderm (talk) 15:24, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

I've looked at your page – still a lot of work to do... Ok, I will from time to time add some contributions to your page! --Cyfal (talk) 18:36, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

Just to let you know, I've found another native speaker to help us on this. See User talk:Ratzer. You're still welcome to contribute in any way you can, of course. Lithoderm (talk) 03:04, 16 October 2008 (UTC)

German windmill lists[edit]

Thanks for your help improving the article. Many of the states have their own articles, although I still have about three to do. I'm currently working on a list of windmills in one of the Counties of England so will leave the missing ones for now. Mjroots (talk) 15:55, 18 October 2008 (UTC)

It was fun updating your article, thank you. --Cyfal (talk) 18:41, 18 October 2008 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Panduro Hobby[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Panduro Hobby, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent 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.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because 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.

Translation of Inuit-Kultur from German Wikipedia[edit]

Hey friend, in agreement with user Lidotherm I'm taking over the translation starting at "Übergang ins 21. Jahrhundert", and I'm getting close finished. I'm just telling you so we don't do double work, since I saw that you translated "Zeitgenössische Literatur" and something further down where I'm working on. Please have a look here (I started my own project page because I didn't know that Lidoderm already had one, plus my work style is slightly different, I'm not translating in a parallel column, but work myself down in the German text, replacing by English text, paragraph by paragraph). The first half Lidotherm copied into this page, from the work you and he had done. We're getting close to the end, and should be able to put up the article during this week.--Ratzer (talk) 06:00, 20 October 2008 (UTC)

Fine! If you like, you may copy the "further down" parts I already translated at User:Lithoderm/Inuit_culture into your Ratzer/Projects/Project2. Although my English is not as good as yours, these parts may be helpful for you, especially because I already checked which links exist in the English Wikipedia and which don't (e.g. the Makivik Corporation etc.). I will not translate any further to avoid double work. Thank you for your work! --Cyfal (talk) 17:43, 20 October 2008 (UTC)
Ich bin jetzt mit "meinem" Teil fertig und habe auch ein paar Zeilen und Wendungen von Dir übernommen (man lernt ja nie aus). Du und Lidotherm solltet noch die Originalbildchen in den ersten Teil mit reinnehmen, dann können wir einen schönen Artikel daraus machen.--Ratzer (talk) 21:10, 20 October 2008 (UTC)
Wahnsinn, was ein Tempo! Ich überlasse dann das eigentliche Einbauen Lithoderm. --Cyfal (talk) 21:19, 20 October 2008 (UTC)

Lithoderm hat sich vorerst aus der Wikipedia zurückgezogen, wie er mir mitgeteilt hat (Zeitmangel oder Behandlung von Wikipedia-Sucht, oder beides?) Auf alle Fälle hat er mich gebeten, mich um die Fertigstellung des Inuit culture-Artikels zu kümmern. Soweit ich die Sache überblicke, müssen noch zwei Unterkapitel übersetzt werden:

  • 1.8.2 Gesellschaftsstruktur und Lebensweise im 19. Jahrhundert
  • 1.8.3 Nomadenleben in der ersten Hälfte des 20. Jahrhunderts

Bevor ich mich da an die Arbeit mache: hast Du da schon was übersetzt? Wie immer möchte ich gern Doppelarbeit vermeiden. Willst Du noch etwas davon übernehmen? Ich hab die nächsten zwei bis drei Wochen nicht so übermäßig viel Zeit, mal schauen was rauskommt wenn ich immer wieder mal zwischendurch ein Viertelstündchen dransitze.
--Ratzer (talk) 19:36, 26 October 2008 (UTC)

Ich habe noch nichts weiter gemacht und weiß auch nicht so ganz, ob ich in den nächsten Tagen dazu komme – aber ich würde vorschlagen, wenn ich Lust habe, übersetze ich einfach Absätze weiter und speichere die gleich auf User:Ratzer/Projects/Project2 ab. Soweit ich es verstanden habe, bereitest Du ja auch nichts auf Papier vor, sondern speicherst es auch gleich dort ab, insofern gibt es dann keine Doppelarbeit, weil jeder sieht, was der andere schon gemacht hat. --Cyfal (talk) 21:42, 26 October 2008 (UTC)

AfD nomination of Castle (company)[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

I have nominated Castle (company), an article that you created, for deletion. I do not think that this article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and have explained why at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Castle (company). Your opinions on the matter are welcome at that same discussion page; also, you are welcome to edit the article to address these concerns. Thank you for your time.

Thanks for your message, I truly appreciate it. I was not certain, but it seemed to me that the original was probably correct, having encountered Blake's curious use of punctuation. Cheers! ---RepublicanJacobiteThe'FortyFive' 21:51, 14 November 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Panduro Hobby[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Panduro Hobby 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 company or corporation, 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 see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for companies and corporations.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the article does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that a copy be emailed to you. Nuttah (talk) 17:20, 16 November 2008 (UTC)

Jeeziz. Consider the day lost in which you learn nothing, as my Latin teacher used to say.

Hi you altered soemthing on my profile, problems[edit]

I was just wondering how you tackle someone who is unreasonbly rewriting an entire article, this is a problem I am currently experiencing, I have issue with the alteration if it, is an improvemnet I have no issue, but I think the users constant rewrites are destroying imformation which is important to the article. What would you suggest, thought you may be someone to ask. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Redpathanderson (talkcontribs) 23:44, 19 December 2008 (UTC)

Neutrality already made a contribution on Talk:Torksey Castle after you wrote this... I think Neutrality's rewriting is not bad, for example the introducting sentence is an improvement. I would suggest that you add the information you think is missing again, but using the latest Neutrality version as base (instead of reverting his changes.) Thus, you can discuss the specific sections on the Talk Page with him, if there is a disagreement. Hope that helps a little bit. --Cyfal (talk) 22:08, 20 December 2008 (UTC)
P.S. Now I understand your profile – I didn't get it at first that palatine wasn't a specific village but instead simply county palatine. Sorry for the confusion, these are the problems of a non-native speaker... --Cyfal (talk) 22:35, 20 December 2008 (UTC)


I'm working on basic editing of the Germanism_(linguistics) page, but the lack of citations is bugging me. Any thoughts on how we might start to get some of these claims verified? It's all very fascinating, and I'm inclined to trust the claims, but verifications would help.Jlg4104 (talk) 04:11, 31 December 2008 (UTC)

I have absolutely no idea... The german wikipedia is not so keen about citations as the English one; in the article de:Germanismus no sources are given at all except an weblink section and a literature section with some German literature. The websites given in the weblink section are also not very resilient, e.g., the Spiegel Online source [2] is a simply a collection of letters by Spiegel Online readers to the editor, without any proof. --Cyfal (talk) 17:11, 1 January 2009 (UTC)

Hi, Cyfal, and thanks for the good faith in your comment. I wanted to let you know about my edit to Frank Frazetta, and that I've left a pretty detailed rationale in my edit summary. But I also wanted to come talk to you about it. There's nothing wrong with a list of paintings, per se, but there needs to be a citation/footnote for each to verify he made a particular painting; this might be tricky, since Wikipedia disallows commercial sales pages as references. The word "Notable" is POV without, say, a quote from an art critic or historian saying, "His most notable works are...."; you can see that the album and poster lists are just objective lists without subjective judgments. Finally, conversational phrases and first-name references violate WP:TONE, and these were uncited besides.

I hope this isn't too despairing, and the good news is, I've posted a note at the WikiProject Comics talk page, so, hopefully, fellow editors will come pitch in to help make this article everything it could be. I look forward to working together with you on it! With regards, -- Tenebrae (talk) 02:04, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

My edit's main intent was to correct the section structure. I wasn't shure whether you intentionally or unintentionally deleted the paintings section, but thought it was unintentionally, therefore I restaured it. However, you are of course right, there are POV judgments in it and "notable" is also POV. Your last modification is fine, and I'm not despaired... However, I'm going to add the "Death Dealer" again, because I think that if an Wikipedia article exists, it should be added. If you don't agree, just revert this edit again, I have no problem with this. Thank you --Cyfal (talk) 02:47, 3 January 2009 (UTC)
All good on that. In fact, it gave me a chance to polish up the Death Dealer article a bit (leaving the content intact and just adding a cite-request tag). Hope to see you 'round the Frazetta articles. --Tenebrae (talk) 02:57, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

You're welcome! I also looked for a translation of "Burschenverein", but there seems no such thing in English :-( Best regards --Cyfal (talk) 06:09, 27 July 2009 (UTC)
Hi!^^ Greetings from Rhineland-Palatinate! The german word "Burschenverein" is actually not to translate in common ways, because it´s some kinda "typical germany-tradition". :-) If I really had to translate it, I shall spell it "tough guy´s association". It´s an village-to-village individually located and organized association, wich is planning and taking care over kermises and village festivals of various sorts. So every village has its own Burschenverein. The gender counterpart of the "tough guys" are the village-maidens. Best regards; --Weneg (talk) 17:59, 29 July 2009 (UTC)By the way: Would ye mind to help me here? A downtown where I live today. ;-)--Weneg (talk) 18:11, 29 July 2009 (UTC)
Hello! Yes, I know what "Burschenverein" is, I'm also from Germany. Ok, I modified Engers somewhat. Some tips for editing wikipedia: You may use the German wikipedia as translation tool for the English one. By this, I found for example the translation of de:Sugambrer as Sicambri. When editing Engers, I was not shure what place Reil was meant - of course not the physician you found by clicking on this link. I guess it was Reil, Germany at the mosella. Best regards, it was a pleasure to help you --Cyfal (talk) 15:21, 30 July 2009 (UTC)
Oh my god, my English must be lousy... *lol* :-D About the village "Reil". Ummm... once there was an tiny hicktown called "Reil" just 4km away from Engers. THIS is the Reil that´s originally meant. ;-) Today it doesn´t exist anymore - I don´t know the correct reason. I´ve once heard that the hicktown vanished wile the inmunicipation-reforms around 1970. But I can visit the Engers city hall at weekend, if ye like. Maybe I´ll find some informations there. Naw, were my workouts ok? Best regards; --Weneg (talk) 15:42, 30 July 2009 (UTC)
No problem with the lousy English, because I think it's better to find good informations about Engers in lousy English than don't find any informations at all in Wikipedia! I've removed the link at the wrong "Reil" now from the article. I leave it up to you whether you want to add informations for Reil you find in the city hall, but I guess this is too much work for you. Best regards --Cyfal (talk) 11:15, 31 July 2009 (UTC)

Thank you – but in fact, I knew that already.

Street of the Prophets[edit]

Hi, the only reason I called it Street of the Prophets (Jerusalem) is because there are similarly named streets in Haifa and Tel Aviv, and the latter one has some notoreity. Should we wait until articles are written about the streets in those other cities before identifying this one as belonging to Jerusalem? Yoninah (talk) 19:20, 11 July 2010 (UTC)

Sorry, I didn't got this.
My idea was that "Street of the Prophets (Jerusalem)" is not a good search term, however "Street of the Prophets" is. Thus, one might think of two different solutions (see also MOS:DAB):
The first one is making "Street of the Prophets" a disambig page, with the three entries "Street of the Prophets (Jerusalem)", "Street of the Prophets (Tel Aviv)" and "Street of the Prophets (Haifa)".
However, it seems to me that the Jerusalem street is much more noteable than the other two, at least from comparing the google hits for "Street of the Prophets" "Jerusalem" on one hand and "Street of the Prophets" "Tel Aviv" on the other. Thus therefore I think that the Jerusalem street should be discribed in "Street of the Prophets" and the Tel Aviv and Haifa streets should be "otheruses" in that article's header. (As soon as the latter articles exist.)
Is this ok for you?
--Cyfal (talk) 19:45, 11 July 2010 (UTC)
Yes, that's fine with me. I won't put on an "other uses" tag until the articles do get written (probably not by me). Thanks, Yoninah (talk) 19:54, 11 July 2010 (UTC)


Hi! I saw you were involved with a previous nomination for deletion of List of suicides in fiction, and felt you should be informed of Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of suicides in fiction (3rd nomination). Thanks!--Yaksar (let's chat) 17:32, 3 February 2011 (UTC)


Hi there, I noticed you were dabbing a few links earlier and wondered if you know about dab solver? If not it may help you to do it faster. Cheers SmartSE (talk) 13:22, 28 February 2011 (UTC)

Excuse me[edit]

But when a user tells me this: "and since you're not Filipino by even asking the meaning of tambayan, I suggest you get on out of here and stop trying to muddle subjects you don't even know about. " which is an affront against me as a non-Filipino, then I am not ready to let that unanswered. --Bone1234 (talk) 12:34, 4 March 2011 (UTC)

But you didn't answer to that, but deleted the contribution.[4]--Cyfal (talk) 12:40, 4 March 2011 (UTC)

Assistance requested on Templates[edit]

Hello, I have notice that you have edited on Battletech, so though this may seem out of the blue.As member of the fairly small Wikipedia: Wikiproject Battletech we currently do not have any templates that are for this project solely. Though experince as I am I have no skill in creating new templates I manly have focused on editing and creation of new pages. I have been extremly focused on the Battletech series as a whole; and thus I am asking if you maybe able to help in creating templates or just lead me to another that maybe able todo so. Thank you for your consideration on this matter.Popa01 (talk) 04:12, 28 April 2011 (UTC)

Hello Popa01,
sorry for not answering earlier – I didn't log in for some days.
Well, I must admit I'm not that expert neither for Battletech nor for templates. I found Inner Sphere by using the "Random article" button and this lead me to Battletech... I've never created a template myself – but you will find a short introduction at Help:A quick guide to templates and more hints at Help:Template. I hope that helps.

Restored speedy on ACUF[edit]

Just in case you weren't aware, you (as the article creator) aren't allowed to remove CSD tags. If you wish to contest, {{hangon}} is the preferred tag to add. The speedy tag is proper since the page doesn't include the requisite number of articles to require a dab page.   ArcAngel   (talk) ) 19:00, 7 May 2011 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Armindo Bruma[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

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

Non-notable at present. Fails WP:GNG and WP:NFOOTBALL.

While all 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. The speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. Argyle 4 Lifetalk 23:03, 6 July 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for your notice. Seems I can't do much against the deletion of this article, WP:NFOOTBALL is clear. --Cyfal (talk) 19:31, 11 July 2011 (UTC)

Haste makes waste[edit]

If there had been adequate attention paid to the text then it should have been apparent. Instead, the knee jerk revert just makes for some work and for others waste. "(Denise Laurel is not in the book--"Emerald" the character is. An actor can take leave from a production; a character is written out. Please do not confuse actors and characters as one and the same. One is real and the other is what is call fiction (made up).)

Please revert responsibly. (talk) 01:49, 21 December 2014 (UTC)

I guess you're talking about this revert, but I can't see what your point is. --Cyfal (talk) 10:59, 21 December 2014 (UTC)

Guess? Something that you on your own will need to fiddle. It is all part of one's weltanschauung. Having a grandmother on the one side that when difficult subjects she wants nothing to admit entered a conversation all of a sudden she is playing dumb; matched with the other grandmother educated in the state language but at home a user of another language, brought about any thing she wrote written in the phonetic spelling of the one language with the words of the other. Being is not a matter of what one wants but what is there and can be brought forth--it falls in line with this community thing they call WP. All very useful even if not by everyone for the same intent. (talk) 12:26, 21 December 2014 (UTC)
