Twin Peaks userbox

Hi - noticed you are a Twin Peaks fan. Are you interested in the userbox I have created? (It seems a bit more cryptic and interesting than the existing one). SM247My Talk 00:05, 3 July 2006 (UTC)

Thanks, that rocks. :D Elaragirl 20:23, 19 October 2006 (UTC)

Greetings, Elara

I'm glad to see that you can speak a little Fuzhou dialect. We are currently working on a new Wiki-project in this language. Check out this link.^^ --GnuDoyng 15:53, 5 August 2006 (UTC)

Wikipedians FROM Texas

VOTE to keep Category:Wikipedians from Texas from merging with Category:Wikipedians in Texas. Being FROM Texas is not necessarily the same as being IN Texas. --Renice 14:51, 21 August 2006 (UTC)

Wikipedia's LGBT Community

Gay flag.svg

Hi, Elaragirl!
You've indicated through various means (a userbox, membership in a category, etc) that you are part of the Wikipedia LGBT community, or are interested in Wikipedia's LGBT related pages. Welcome!

You may not know that Wikipedia has both an LGBT Notice Board and an LGBT Studies WikiProject. If you haven't yet done so, take a look at both of them. They sorely need attention and participation!

Some things on the "To-Do List" that merit particular attention include:

  1. Identifying topics/pages that need attention
  2. Identifying problems that need addressing
  1. Adding the LGBT template to appropriate pages
  2. Categorizing LGBT pages

Please feel free to participate in any or all of these activities! And if you feel like it, add yourself to either the Noticeboard Members or the WikiProject Participants - or both!

Glad you're a part of Wikipedia - and Thanks! This invitation posted here by SatyrTN -- talk
Please remove it if you so desire.


I'm a close supporter of FFOZ. I would like to expand the article on FFOZ, but my hands are full with the whole Messianic Judaism project here on wiki. It would be a blessing if you could help expand any article as you see fit. Thanks for all your help! We need you. When people first hear of Messianic Judaism, many I've noticed have gone to wikipedia for their information. This is an important front line for Messianics, especially those of us who support FFOZ's viewpoints. :) inigmatus 15:59, 26 October 2006 (UTC)

Oh, by the way, I just created Wikipedia:WikiProject Messianic Judaism to recruit and coordinate efforts to develop Messianic Judaism content on Wikipedia. Hope you'll join! inigmatus 19:33, 26 October 2006 (UTC)

Request for comment

Hi. You were kind enough to take the time to respond to an RFC I raised (User:Ernham). Can I trouble you once more and ask you to have a look at Talk:Charles de Gaulle (R 91)#The way forward. I came in as a third opinion, but I would welcome another. Thank you very much for your time. Mark83 00:32, 27 October 2006 (UTC)

Thank you! Mark83 08:15, 27 October 2006 (UTC)
There is a Straw Poll on this subject, can you kindly participate ? Thanks a lot. Natobxl
Thanks for your constructive and unbiased comments. Have a great weekend.Natobxl 01:34, 28 October 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for your help above. Mark83 21:27, 29 October 2006 (UTC)

Drew Article

Here are the comments I left when I assessed the article:

I rated this as "Start for several reasons. First off, the lead paragraph needs work. It states that Drew was involved in the development of blood banks, but the body of the article doesn't support that assertion. Also, you need a lot more inline citations--at least one per paragraph is the suggestion.

The "Death section could be more tightly edited. The area of how expert drivers might have been able to get out of that predicament is just conjecture. Like they say on Dragnet, "Just the facts, M'am".

I also noticed a lot of typos and punctuation errors. This article needs a good copy editing. I did find it very interesting, and look forward to reading it again when it is more polished. Jeffpw 20:59, 2 November 2006 (UTC)

  • Thanks for the Shrieking Harpy smiley! If you want any help working on this article, please feel free to ask. Like I said, I found it a very interesting article. That's what I love about editing on Wiki--you always learn something while helping out!...and here's a new userbox I just made (I hope you get a smile out of it)
This user is a Friend of Dorothy.

Start class. Nicely written article, but needs to be sourced (inline citations) and expanded. Also, the lead needs to be expanded to cover all main points of the article itself. Jeffpw 14:13, 4 November 2006 (UTC)

Re: your Ad-Up posting to my chez37 talk page

>In Ur Base, Killing Ur Dorfs here. Wouldn't you be happier with me announcing that >I am a Deletionist (and putting it in my userboxes) rather than hiding it?

Sure, thank you for your honesty. It helps. If everyone else was as honest, we could get on with the real issues and not attack valid, well referenced articles.

>When I said ClickZ was pushing press releases, it's because I've had articles speedied and AfD'd before >that used that site, and they *do* put out press releases. I'm sorry if your article is important to you --

Oh, yeah? Prove it. That ClickZ article reference is from 1999. If they accepted press releases, don't you think Ad-Up would have re-posted a newer press release by now?

Perhaps they accept press releases now, but the historical listings are valid.

>I had an article of mine that *I* felt was relevant get deleted. But -- at least to people like me -- unless > a business is a household term, it SHOULDN'T be in Wikipedia , really.

Sorry about your article, but don't take out your animosity over that on other people who have nothing to do with your pet articles.

>When I read the article, I don't know anything that I didn't know before -- > and THAT is why , in my book, it fails the Delete test.

Well excuse me ms. Encyclopedia. If you knew everything about Ad-Up already then clearly it IS A HOUSEHOLD name and therefore, according to MOONDYNE meets exactly the definition of WHAT SHOULD BE IN WIKIPEDIA.

Thank you!!!!

Wow, believe it or not 15,000 edits, 12 months and one adminship later thats still like my third ever Barnstar - so sincerely appreciated! I'm still laughing at your notice at the top of this page too... set on fire :) Cheers to that! Thanks again! Glen 22:47, 6 November 2006 (UTC)

thank you!

Hi, ElaraGirl! And thank you for the great welcome note. I'm pretty new here, and kind of an embarrassing dunce at my computer (looking at my keyboard, I don't even see where the tildes are. Durn Mac). You sound incredibly cool; I don't know what Messianic Jews are, but that dwarf game sounds like it's right up my alley. Have you ever heard of Rogue or FantaSoft? I used to play them alot, until I figured out how to cheat the game, and then, well, it wasn't as much fun anymore.  :)

I'm also in my 30's, but with TWO daughters. Ten years from now: Two teenage girls at the same time. Yay, me. <eye roll>

RE: barnstar

Thank you VERY much for the barnstar and the kind words included in it. It's nice to hear sometimes that I'm not messing things up completely around here :) Let me know if I can ever be of help. I may be slowing down on my editing for a while, so if you need something quick just e-mail me. Cheers! --AbsolutDan (talk) 04:01, 7 November 2006 (UTC)

Nikhil Parekh

I have just placed this notice on the Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Nikhil Parekh page, and am bringing every voter's attention to it as promised.

Comment. Sigh. Despite the inevitable tirade that this will unleash, I am sorry to have to bring new information to the table. I have this morning received an email from Vijaya Ghose, editor of the Limca Book of Records. "Dear Mr (----), We have enlisted a couple of claims of Nikhil Parekh. Longest Poem is not one of them. He has formidable competition in John Milton's Paradise Lost and our own Mahabharata. However, he has written to many heads of state and has received replies but not from the head of state but the secretary or executive assistant. He is is the first from India to feature on Eppie. We checked with them. Regards Vijaya Ghose. So Parekh, though probably not notable as a poet, is indeed an Indian world record holder. I suspect that this changes the balance on his notability, though the article would still require a great deal of clear-up. I will notify everyone who took part in this vote and ask admins to extend debate a little. Sorry.

I don't know whether this changes your vote, but thought you should know. Vizjim 06:04, 7 November 2006 (UTC)

RfA thanks

Admin mop.PNG
Thank you for participating in my RfA discussion! I appreciate you contributing your voice to the debate and its outcome. I hope how I wield the mop makes you proud. Thanks!

Thanks again! I was doing speedy-deletion duty yesterday, and is there ever a lot of mopping to do! I appreciate the kind words and the barnstar. When the first wave of baby-admin wikistress strikes, they'll help me remember why I accepted the nomination. — Saxifrage 19:12, 7 November 2006 (UTC)


Thanks!! Greatly appreciated - nice to know that effort is recognised. Anyway, keep up your good work as a fellow deletionist (Wikipedia not a trash can), and I hope your Wikistress level goes down. Cheers, Moreschi 19:48, 7 November 2006 (UTC) (And how annoying is it that newpage patrol doesn't show up in contribs or edit count once the page gets deleted...something I found out today...Moreschi 19:48, 7 November 2006 (UTC))

True enough. BTW, have you actually voted in the MfDs? Both the Wikipedia:Hangman and Wikipedia:Chess championship ones as well as the Esperanza one. It would be rather strange to give me a barnstar and then not do so!! Cheers, Moreschi 19:56, 7 November 2006 (UTC)
Hot damn, that is not a little worrying. It won't happen, though, not with all the other games at MfD. In fact, can't we put his subpage up at MfD? Check out WP:USERPAGE, about one-third of the way down - what's not allowed in userpages. Moreschi 20:45, 7 November 2006 (UTC)
I see it. BTW, if you're wandering around looking out for something to vote on, check out my contribs and those two niggling AfDs, where you prod but people just won't let go. Cheers, Moreschi 21:22, 7 November 2006 (UTC)
Me again. Check this out. Maybe MfD isn't immediately appropriate here: perhaps leave a note on his/her talk page to say that per userpage policy this isn't really on, and he might like to blank it himself, do you reckon? Cheers, Moreschi 21:50, 7 November 2006 (UTC)

Re: Arggh! Kush Article tangle

Thanks for your note - no problem :) I'd never seen that happen before, but I'm not as busy as some WikiGnomes... Cheers. --RobHutten 20:08, 7 November 2006 (UTC)

Image in your sig

Hello. I noticed your signature in the miscellany for deletion of WikiPlomacy, and wanted to let you know that per WP:SIG you cannot have images, free or otherwise, in your signature. Just wanted to let you know, and, on an unrelated subject, I support fully the idea of moving WikiPlomacy to another wiki. I'm just sorry that this whole thing had to happen. Be seeing you!
