Errol Crossan[edit]

Yes check.svg Done, thanks for spotting it! GiantSnowman 16:41, 4 May 2016 (UTC)


You're welcome. But if one momentary loss of concentration really constitutes inadequacy, I think we all qualify... cheers, Struway2 (talk) 14:52, 5 May 2016 (UTC)


Hey dude, can we reinvigorate the Ramsey push? I have a few days to spare while I'm on paternity leave so I might well be able to help a bit more than I have. Even taking it to FAC for review and criticism may be helpful? The Rambling Man (talk) 08:48, 24 May 2016 (UTC)

I'd absolutely love to, but my computer time is very very limited at the moment. --Dweller (talk) Become old fashioned! 21:43, 24 May 2016 (UTC)
Oi, The Rambling Man! Put down those nappies and get editing! --Dweller (talk) Become old fashioned! 09:00, 2 June 2016 (UTC)

Daemonic Kangaroo[edit]

Thanks for the email, and I am flattered by your comments. If you want to see a reason why I don't wish to remain here, just see the message above yours on the Daemonic Kangaroo talk page. WP has too many pedants who know all the "rules" and get orgasmic when they enforce them. I keep an eye on Southampton FC players and still revert vandalism, but don't want to come back on a regular basis. (talk) 16:46, 1 June 2016 (UTC) (formerly Daemonic Kangaroo)

I understand your feelings. Feel free to contribute to Ramsey (as you just did!) whenever and in whatever guise you like. We're happy and lucky to have you. And you'll find the chaps working on Ramsey (there's only a few of us) to be pretty clued-up but also collegiate. --Dweller (talk) Become old fashioned! 09:51, 3 June 2016 (UTC)

Br. English[edit]

Dweller, as a Brit, perhaps you could help Corinne and I understand British-English practice regarding punctuation outside quotation marks. We're having a side-discussion about it here. Thanks! Sca (talk) 22:17, 7 June 2016 (UTC)

GAR input sought[edit]

Hi, I followed here from Wikipedia:WikiProject Quality Article Improvement and I am reaching out for an opinion; as the member of the project I hope could provide input on the topics of sourcing, neutrality, extraordinary claims, and level of detail in the articles, as well as general Wikipedia policies.

It has been suggested to me by editor Coretheapple in the Discussion area of a current GA reassessment that the review be brought to the attention of a wider audience. The issues above are included in the review, so I hope there's enough of a cross-functional applicability. The article in question is Hyacinth Graf Strachwitz; no specialist knowledge is required to be able to contributed to the GAR.

I would welcome feedback or a review of the article to see if it still meets Wikipedia:Good article criteria and whether it should be retained or delisted as a Good article. I would also welcome any feedback you'd be willing to share. Thank you and happy editing. K.e.coffman (talk) 07:53, 27 June 2016 (UTC)

Hi. If I understand you rightly, you're looking for help with assessing whether an article meets GA requirements? I'm afraid I have no expertise at all in GA. You'd be better off finding someone with a bunch of GA nominations to their name? --Dweller (talk) Become old fashioned! 09:01, 27 June 2016 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Today's featured article/July 21, 2016[edit]

Do you want to have a go at this? What I'm looking for in the first sentence is something about how Liverpool Football Club had a run of successes in the 1960s and 1970s, that is, some snappy summary of what they accomplished. I'm thinking that Heysel is a bridge too far for the first sentence. Thoughts? - Dank (push to talk) 11:44, 7 July 2016 (UTC)

Sure thang. Meanwhile I've been updating User:Dweller/Featured Articles that haven't been on Main Page. Take a look. --Dweller (talk) Become old fashioned! 11:46, 7 July 2016 (UTC)
Outstanding. Pinging Chris and Brian. - Dank (push to talk) 11:50, 7 July 2016 (UTC)

Hit Special:UserRights/Dorg2994 and be an administrator and bureaucrat. (talk) 14:30, 7 July 2016 (UTC)

I am a Bureaucrat and an administrator already, but thanks. --Dweller (talk) Become old fashioned! 14:58, 7 July 2016 (UTC)
Dorg2994 wants to be a bureaucrat and administrator (talk) 13:50, 9 July 2016 (UTC)
Then I suggest Dorg2994 reads WP:ADMIN and WP:CRAT. They might save some time by reading WP:NOTNOW first. Cheers, --Dweller (talk) Become old fashioned! 20:01, 10 July 2016 (UTC)
I read Wikipedia articles (talk) 05:35, 11 July 2016 (UTC)
That may be the case, but unless you edit them using a registered account, no-one will trust you enough to grant you the administrative tools. Furthermore, if you're not editing you obviously have no need for the tools. --Dweller (talk) Become old fashioned! 08:24, 11 July 2016 (UTC)

Would you please check on my subscription request to Wikien-bureaucrats? — xaosflux Talk 11:49, 13 July 2016 (UTC)

Ah. I'll try! --Dweller (talk) Become old fashioned! 12:14, 13 July 2016 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done :-) --Dweller (talk) Become old fashioned! 12:26, 13 July 2016 (UTC)


I'll chip in if I can, but after Saturday I'm going to be away for at least a week and probably won't have WP access....... -- ChrisTheDude (talk) 11:41, 19 July 2016 (UTC)

I have a bit of time before I go away. Will be interested to hear what the verdict is on what needs doing. Last time I looked there was still a lot of material sourced to Jeff Trice's MFC history site, which has now vanished and by the more rigorous standards of today is probably questionable as a reliable source anyway.......... -- ChrisTheDude (talk) 11:47, 19 July 2016 (UTC)
