Welcome[edit]

Well, I'll leave that bit of the template. Welcome seems a decent start to the page, if you've made your way here :)

Trivaeo[edit]

Ddhawkins73 - I am the words creator and this is a valid approach which the author of the artice has used. I have notified the author to remove any reference to Trivaeo Limited and myself. I am stil a bit at odds with overall wikipedia though given the total advertising to things like ZOHO, Oracle, Microsoft and BEA. I guess wikipedians are happy to slag a valid approach but lack the same vigor and dedication to the rules when it is something like Trivaeo. Kinda new to Wikipedia so not sure how the signature thing goes, let me give it a go! --Pograham (talk) 10:08, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

List of Us / UK words[edit]

Hi, (and welcome if you are new!). I noticed the AfD for the list of US word not commonly used in the UK. I suspect it will be kept, and i don't necessarily disagree that such a list cannot be encylopedic, but the current one is complete rubbish (ie utter garbage :-D), so if you intend to do a cleanup there, count me in.

I already tagged a load that i disagree with, but the whole thing should be cleared out and started from scratch. Every term needs either a cite, or at least strong consensus on the talk, imo.Yobmod (talk) 13:01, 4 February 2009 (UTC)

Modernism[edit]

I've added the Peter Childs link to googlebooks. I'm glad you're working on this article-- people keep posting complaints about it on the talk page but they rarely make any edits. Ewulp (talk) 04:25, 9 February 2009 (UTC)

Re:comment at AFD[edit]

Regarding your comment at the Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Trio La Milpa discussion, I feel I must warn you. There are places where you could be shot for making a joke this bad. :P Regardless, thanks for a much needed smile. -- saberwyn 10:38, 10 February 2009 (UTC)

Your recent edits[edit]

Hi there. In case you didn't know, when you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion, you should sign your posts by typing four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment. If you can't type the tilde character, you should click on the signature button Button sig.png located above the edit window. This will automatically insert a signature with your name and the time you posted the comment. This information is useful because other editors will be able to tell who said what, and when. Thank you! --SineBot (talk) 15:40, 12 February 2009 (UTC)

Non Admin Closure[edit]

Would you like to perform a Non Admin Closure on Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Ejection (sports) or shall I? Alpha 4615 (talk) 21:42, 12 February 2009 (UTC)

Done. Alpha 4615 (talk) 22:15, 12 February 2009 (UTC)

AfD on Total Body Lift[edit]

Thanks for your work on this. I don't know why I missed body shaping when looking around for articles to merge it into! Espresso Addict (talk) 12:41, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

Deletion issues are so cumbersome. Important tidy up, but there's so many things to consider it's no wonder it sometimes takes a while to sort them out, especially when the original article is all word-fog :) - Ddawkins73 (talk) 15:33, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

No worries. It's not a matter of understating it imo. Or overstating it. I think it's pov because someone reading the article who knew nothing about the incidents would get the wrong impression. For example, listing items of inequal frequency, without figures, is problematic. The only muslim reaction being the leader of Hamza distorts the picture entirely. And if you wanted to get a decent mark in a history exam you wouldn't quote press sources without attribution. The verbs used tend to be non-neutral and presumptive. Things like that.

Alternative to notability[edit]

Hello! I am working on an objective alternate to notability in my userspace. Please read User:A Nobody/Inclusion guidelines and offer any suggestions on its talk page, which I will consider for revision purposes. If you do not do so, no worries, but if you wish to help, it is appreciated. Best, --A NobodyMy talk 01:46, 17 February 2009 (UTC)

Cell phone messed up page[edit]

Tried to add comment on cell phone and messed up page. If anyone wants to revert to 16th and or tidy many thanks. I will leave replies etc until i am back in 2 weeks.

Please withdraw your merge vote[edit]

Please withdraw your merge vote for Mr. President (title), I just added extensive sources and rewrote the article. Ikip (talk) 20:33, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

AFD[edit]

Hi, I thought you might be interested in voting on Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Alamela since you voted on Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Allison Harvard. Thanks! Plastikspork (talk) 22:30, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

A deletion review discussion you may wish to contribute to.[edit]

Hi. I've listed two deleted articles at Wikipedia:Deletion_review, following the discussion on "lists of unusual things" which took place earlier in the year. As a contributor to that discussion, you might be interested in expressing an opinion on whether the two deleted articles should be restored. SP-KP (talk) 15:40, 17 April 2009 (UTC)
