Good call[edit]

None of your reasoning makes sense. I apologize that you cannot interpret basic texts for the simplest of people. — Preceding unsigned comment added by TheGracefulSlick (talkcontribs) 00:50, 23 January 2015 (UTC)

note to self: after a bit of hunting, this cryptic note refers to pop-culture listing usages in Time of the Season
Yeah it does, it clearly asked for uses in popular culture. NCIS is one of the most popular shows in America! If you do not fix it in three days, I will and I'll have my associates make sure you cannot remove it without getting banned. Sorry that I must do this, but you are not contributing positively to the song article. (unsigned, from User:TheGracefulSlick)

Portmanteau Image[edit]

Hi David,

The Portmanteau page looks fantabulous. Wondering if you would like to add this image: The Portmantotem Pole consisting of over 80 portmanteau words. Hope you enjoy! The original image is posted on — Preceding unsigned comment added by Melancholypelican (talkcontribs) 20:06, 8 February 2015 (UTC)


Hi David, not sure if I'm using the correct platform for this, just wanted to explain the reason for the changes I've made on the UWR page. I might be biased so that could be the reason why some of the texts sound buzzwordy as I've been a fan of this sport for quite a while now. On the other hand I know quite much of it and I can compare it to other sports I did or still do. I think the whole page would require updating, the reasons why I haven't done that is because I don't know Wikipedia much, I don't have so much time, and I would need to have the text checked by someone as my English knowledge is not flawless. Anyway, I would really like to emphasise how young and different UWR is, for instance the fact that it allows mixed gender teams, or being a 3 dimensional teamsport, which I find exceptional. Simply saying it's underwater does not describe that, I also play underwater hockey, which is also underwater yet it has nothing in common with rugby in this aspect as the puck does run on the bottom of the pool even if some shots lift it up. So the same discipline as hockey, soccer, etc. Do you play UWR too? Would you like to work on an update together? There are so many things which should be included in this post to be decent and accurate! Thanks, Zoltan — Preceding unsigned comment added by Uwrplayer (talkcontribs) 14:47, 16 February 2015 (UTC)

Hi Uwrplayer (& Hi David), I think the best place to have a discussion about this matter is Talk:Underwater rugby because I would like to make some comments. Regards Cowdy001 (talk) 20:53, 16 February 2015 (UTC)
I've reverted it, with a note to go to Talk - also created a talk page for Uwrplayer, who doesn't have a page yet. - DavidWBrooks (talk) 21:22, 16 February 2015 (UTC)

Sorry about that! I'm new to this, and ready for any advice. I'm still trying to find out who T. Edward McIntyre was, and I was wondering if you could help me. I know that he was a city government department head, because he is in a picture from 1946 of people in the city government. Oh, geez, I just realized that I forgot to log in - My account is Pretzel4. Pretzel4 (talk) 16:21, 23 March 2015 (UTC)


Hello, David – I wonder if you could help answer my question at User talk:Vsmith#Vermont. I don't know how to find the source so I can read it. Can you help? CorinneSD (talk) 22:33, 24 March 2015 (UTC)


Sorry, i think it's because the actual actors called him MCGWEGGOR with the W on the show. But i'm sure this was just in good humor. I figured it was an error on both pages. Thanks for not blocking me. :) — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 04:23, 26 March 2015 (UTC)

Aviation Museum of New Hampshire[edit]

Hi David,

Thanks for helping to save this page!  :) I'm a fan of air history. I just added an Infobox to the page. Question: What permission is needed to add the museum logo to the Wikipedia page? Do we need permission to add museum staff names from their website? What's the best way to get them to write a few paragraphs? I can't locate a museum creation date. Maineshepp (talk) 17:52, 12 April 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for your suggestions. I'll see what I can find. Their logo is a good one. Maineshepp (talk) 23:30, 12 April 2015 (UTC)

Concern over Jeane Dixon article[edit]

Hello DavidWBrooks.
      I am writing to you concerning the article on Jeane Dixon. I realize there are many contributors to this article, but you appear to be the first, and also the editor who contributed the part I have a concern with. When the article says Jeane Dixon "was [emphasis added] one of the best-known American astrologers and psychics of the 20th century.......", it necessarily implies that there is a such thing as psychics and psychic phenomena. These are hotly debated issues with different people holding different opinions. And Wikipedia articles are not supposed to present opinion as if it were fact. I believe this violates WP:NPOV.
      Rather than going right in and changing the wording, I wanted to first consult with at least one of the article's editors and hopefully work together on alternate language. From experience, I've found that it usually works better that way. I would very much appreciate hearing your opinion.
