Table tests[edit]

Might I suggest playing with the tables somewhere besides the article talk page? User:DavidP02/Sandbox would be an ideal place; it makes it difficult to read the Talk:Homebrewing page history if it is full of a lot of test edits. ptkfgs 22:38, 12 October 2006 (UTC)

Okay DavidP02 22:41, 12 October 2006 (UTC)


Great work with the homebrewing article! Glad to see you've decided to stay :-) ptkfgs 00:12, 13 October 2006 (UTC)

Thanks! I wish I knew how to do these private message thingies. ;-) DavidP02 00:15, 13 October 2006 (UTC)
Click on a user's name (e.g. Ptkfgs) and you'll be taken to that user's page. At the top, there will be a tab labeled "discussion". It's basically the same as the talk page for an article, but the user will be notified of new messages. A lot of users also put a link to the talk page in their signatures, for example, the "fgs" in my signature links to User talk:Ptkfgs. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you need any help with the Wikipedia software. ptkfgs 00:27, 13 October 2006 (UTC)

Text boxes[edit]

Can you point to an example of this somewhere? I'm not sure what you mean. ptkfgs 23:07, 13 October 2006 (UTC)

hmmm. we have templates like {{quotation}} that do this, but generally, if text is part of the article (i.e., it's wikipedia's text, not a quotation), it's just left in the article without any extra formatting. there is more information in the wikipedia manual of style. ptkfgs 18:56, 14 October 2006 (UTC)


Yes, I see what you mean. You can delete that section if it does not contain anything new. (PS: Type four tildes at the end of your message (~~~~) to sign your name) — goethean 22:57, 16 October 2006 (UTC)


  1. Unfortunately, I've never uploaded a picture and am unclear on the process. I'll have to refer you to Wikipedia:Uploading_images.
  2. The brewing forum that I use is Their photo gallery is at
  3. I'm not sure exactly what you mean by 'cask'. You mean with a beer engine? That is extremely rare among homeberwers. I agree that most homebrewers cornie keg and that the article should reflect this.
  4. Yes, Wikipedia is not for how-to manuals and text that can be described as such can be deleted. — goethean 14:12, 17 October 2006 (UTC)

Loudspeaker peer review request[edit]

I've requested the article Loudspeaker to have peer review. I noticed it was pretty good and might deserve a GA status. If you can take a look at it too and help evaluate and improve it's quality, that would be great. The peer review tag can be found on the article's talk page. --Davidkazuhiro 10:34, 19 February 2007 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

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.

Speedy deletion nomination of Howden Insurance Brokers Limited[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

A tag has been placed on Howden Insurance Brokers Limited 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, corporation or organization that does not credibly 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 read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion".
