DYK[edit]

Updated DYK query On 18 December, 2007, Did you know? was updated with a fact from the article Waipatiki, which you created or substantially expanded. If you know of another interesting fact from a recently created article, then please suggest it on the Did you know? talk page.

red went blue[edit]

Hello Dick,

As you suggested, I created my user page. Now my name isn't red anymore! WeeJeeVee (talk) 20:49, 8 January 2008 (UTC)

Devonport[edit]

Hi Dick Bos - thanks for the fix. Yes you did it right - and I am surprised myself that I or Gadfium hadn't seen it earlier. Ah well. Happy editing! Ingolfson (talk) 01:48, 9 November 2008 (UTC)

Eastwoodhill Arboretum, NZ[edit]

Dear Dick Cannot understand your problem, the link still works perfectly for me. Best wishes, and Happy New Year, Ptelea (talk) 15:29, 1 January 2009 (UTC)

Dear Dick Have contacted Paul Wynen at Eastwoodhill, who has promised to investigate the problem. Thank you for drawing it to my attention. Regards, Ptelea (talk) 10:38, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

Dear Dick Regret I have not made Paul's acquaintance; links with Australasia strictly via the Internet alas. Regards, Ptelea (talk) 11:07, 12 January 2009 (UTC)

Henry Williams[edit]

Hi Dick, No trouble about the improvements. As for the boxes, I don't know anything about the previous box, & I left the existing box there - the 2 boxes cover different things, one is the man, the other covers Protestant Missions to Pacific Islands. I suggest leave them both, but up to you. Good luck. GrahamBould (talk) 07:05, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

Your sandbox and categories[edit]

Hi, I've taken the liberty of making a small tweak to your sandbox as it was showing up in various categories. You need to add a colon in front of categories in your sandbox so that they don't show in the actual category, but you can check that they are correct. Thus [[:Category:Foo]] and not [[Category:Foo]]. Mjroots (talk) 05:21, 11 July 2009 (UTC)

V'daal[edit]

Ik sta geblokt bij de NL-versie dus even hier. De naam Veenendaal komt voort uit Veen (turf) en dal omdat het dorp in een dal ligt. Het kan zijn dat het dal is gekomen door uitgravingen van het veen, maar dat weet ik niet zeker. Diepeveen is in ieder geval een soort onofficiele synoniem voor Veenendaal en een zeer veel voorkomende achternaam hier. Vanwege de rijkdom aan veen in het verleden waren hier de sigaren- en wolfabrieken gesitueerd, waarbij vocht en energiebron nodig waren voor het prod. proces en die twee factoren lagen in het veen als grondstof. Scheepjeswol heeft niets met schepen te maken, maar met dhr. D.S. van Schuppen, de eigenaar die Schupjeswol niet lekker vond klinken. Daarvan afgeleid weer is er nu het winkelcentrum 'de Scheepjeshof' op de plek van de oude fabriek. Verder is er nog wel een logische connectie met de ligging vanwege de Rijn en de oude spoorlijn Amersfoort Kleve die in de oorlog bij Rhenen plategooid werd. Maar misschien ligt dat buiten de contekst, maar gezien je bijdragen op nl voor jouwzelf wel weer interessant. Tgenwoordig is die lijn herlegd en actief als Utrecht-Rhenen. Het museum 't Kleine Veenloo heeft een uitgebreide collectie over de historie van Veenendaal. Daar kun je het beste terecht voor verificatie en feiten over de geschiedenis van het dorp. 83.87.171.3 (talk) 14:17, 20 August 2009 (UTC)

Bedankt. Ik ga kijken wat ik er mee kan doen. Dick Bos (talk) 18:09, 21 August 2009 (UTC)

Re: request for help[edit]

If you never vandalized the Masterton page, then don't worry about anything. It's possible that IP address is shared with a number of other people, so it may not have been you at all. That's why having an account here is an advantage; it eliminates confusions like this. Hope I cleared this up, and happy editing! --Cubs Fan (Talk to me) 17:16, 9 February 2010 (UTC)

Warawara[edit]

Hi - I put this on the Agathis Australis page I was thinking of starting a Warawara page & moving the Warawara section out to it - most of it anyway? LawrieM (talk) 21:51, 13 June 2010 (UTC)

Marx's stock trades[edit]

Hoi Dick[edit]

Zoals bekend sta ik in blokkade, dus ik geef hier even informatie. Ik heb net even gekeken. Het artikel over YL staat in Zozolala 103. Als je op stripster.nl het tabje 'bladen' in de linkerkolom aanklikt zie je een gallery waarin zozolala staat. Als je dan op zozolala klikt, kun je doorklikken naar nummer 103 en dan pal onder dec 1998-jan1999 staan 3 artikelen. De betreffende over YL, een over Peter van Dongen en een over Kim Duchateau. Ik ben het met Sir Statler eens dat het Wikiepdia-artikel over YL niet erg best en onvolledig is en dat mijn werkhouding on wiki te wensen overlaat. Dat is in geen enkel geval moedwillig gericht tegen mensen die rechtlijnig handelen zoals u en Sir Statler doen. Ik waardeer het als mensen objectief blijven. Hier is een nog een aanvullende bio met meer info, opgesteld door Muziek Centrum Nederland die alles accurater uiteenzet: [2]. Ik zit niet aan het Wiki-artikel om COI-conflict te voorkomen. Zoals het hoort volgens veel andere bijdragers. M.vr.gr. 83.87.75.137 (talk) 08:52, 7 December 2010 (UTC)

The Wikipedia Library: New Account Coordinators Needed[edit]

Hi Books & Bytes recipients: The Wikipedia Library has been expanding rapidly and we need some help! We currently have 10 signups for free account access open and several more in the works... In order to help with those signups, distribute access codes, and manage accounts we'll need 2-3 more Account Coordinators.

It takes about an hour to get up and running and then only takes a couple hours per week, flexible depending upon your schedule and routine. If you're interested in helping out, please drop a note in the next week at my talk page or shoot me an email at: jorlowitz@gmail.com. Thanks and cheers, Jake Ocaasi via MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 23:41, 20 June 2014 (UTC)
