Your signature[edit]

Hey, I saw you added your sig at Wikipedia:Signature tutorial#Real-life examples. I wanted to be sure you saw the note there about font tags. The one other "violation" pre-dated the note, so I consider it grandfathered. The reason for the note is that these are meant to be usage examples, not simply a showcase for signatures, and font tags have been discouraged in signatures for some time. Not going to make an issue of it, just wanted to be sure you were aware and informed. ―Mandruss  17:22, 25 February 2016 (UTC)

Berlin Brandenburg Airport edits[edit]

Thanx for editing in BER. I just wanted to express my gratitude towards your infallible corrections as I intend to remark that you shouldnt run idioms through digital word processors. "Auf die Pelle ruecken" is a German idiom and it expresses that the state attorney is intending to move in the closer proximity of the culprit, id est he is moving towards the sausage skin. That means that the yet lasting sausage will cease to exist pretty soon. It does not mean something like to move your body to you or whattheheck you nevertheless intended to describe as a possible meaning. In the future be so kind and keep my suggested translations. The meaning in this case is more like that the state attorney intends to drain certain info out of the lousy mind of the culprit, it is not move your body over the river, on the river, or whatever poker games might suggest as a solution.

Ccokz And I truncated the English to your translation of the question in the headline and explained it in the edit summary. In future, please use the start a new section for comments on talk pages. Thanks!—D'Ranged 1 | VTalk :  20:49, 27 February 2016 (UTC)

Want a challenge?[edit]

Search for linkrot on Mucho Macho Man. If that one doesn't terrify you, then try the 200+ links on California Chrome. LOL! (Actually, I'm serious, both are FAs and I got them there... and hope they stay there... ) Montanabw(talk) 02:35, 28 February 2016 (UTC)

Your GA nomination of Virginia Tech shooting[edit]

Hi there, I'm pleased to inform you that I've begun reviewing the article Virginia Tech shooting you nominated for GA-status according to the criteria.

== Your GA nomination of Virginia Tech shooting==

The article Virginia Tech shooting you nominated as a good article has been placed on hold Symbol wait.svg. The article is close to meeting the good article criteria, but there are some minor changes or clarifications needing to be addressed. If these are fixed within 7 days, the article will pass; otherwise it may fail. See Talk:Virginia Tech shooting for things which need to be addressed.

I see you haven't edited in over two weeks, nor touched the article in two months. If you're not going to be able to work on this, I can fail it now and my feedback can serve as a starting point for next time. OR, if you're going to be able to get to it but not this week, let me know so I can hold it over for a bit longer. Whichever, point is that I'm holding off on doing any other GA reviews so I can work with you on this if you are willing to do the work to fix the issues I've identified. Cheers, Jclemens (talk) 19:46, 9 July 2016 (UTC)
My apologies. I'm unable to deal with Wikipedia at all at the moment due to real life interfering. Could you put it "on hold" and we can pick up in a couple of months? I realize you may be committed to other articles by then, but you've invested quite a bit of time on this one and I'd be willing to wait until you're available once I am. Thanks. —D'Ranged 1 | VTalk :  10:19, 15 July 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for getting back to me! Sticking the GA review "on hold" for an extended/indefinite time will clog up the GA process somewhat, especially if multiple folks did that; hold is really only designed for a week or two of active editing. However, the amount of time that poor article waited in the queue was unfortunate, as well. I propose to not pass it at this time, but hit me up on my talk page when you've 1) got time to invest in it again, and 2) have substantially addressed (fixed or disagreed with and counter-proposed) the concerns I raised, and I will prioritize it such that you would have to wait, at most, a week or two for me to revisit it. How does that sound? Jclemens (talk) 17:34, 15 July 2016 (UTC)
That sounds perfect, frankly. I'm not impatient, but would hate to see it just go back in the queue. Even if it took you another month to respond to my updates, I'd be more than happy. Unfortunately, the timing is just off at the moment. I appreciate your willingness to bend! Thanks. —D'Ranged 1 | VTalk :  01:32, 17 July 2016 (UTC)
