RE: Template:TCG Set[edit]

Thanks for the comments and suggestions. I'll look into them. I'll be leaving out Expansion Symbol as that can be added in the Image tag. Thanks again for your comments. Double Dash (Talk to me) 18:31, 7 October 2006 (UTC)

Regarding edits made to Rampart (arcade game)[edit]

Thank you for contributing to Wikipedia, Emurphy42! However, your edit here was reverted by an automated bot that attempts to remove spam from Wikipedia. If you were trying to insert a good link, please accept my creator's apologies, but note that the link you added, matching rule spesw\.com, is on my list of links to remove and probably shouldn't be included in Wikipedia. Please read Wikipedia's external links policy for more information. If the link was to an image, please read Wikipedia's image tutorial on how to use a more appropriate method to insert the image into an article. If your link was intended to promote a site you own, are affiliated with, or will make money from inclusion in Wikipedia, please note that inserting spam into Wikipedia is against policy. For more information about me, see my FAQ page. Thanks! Shadowbot 22:15, 5 February 2007 (UTC)

Yorkshiremen (game)[edit]

I have added a "{{prod}}" template to the article Yorkshiremen (game), suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but I don't believe it satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and I've explained why in the deletion notice (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). Please either work to improve the article if the topic is worthy of inclusion in Wikipedia, or, if you disagree with the notice, discuss the issues at its talk page. Please do not remove the notice without addressing the issues it mentions (it is considered vandalism). Even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.

Starfleet General Orders[edit]

Another editor has added the "{{prod}}" template to the article Starfleet General Orders, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but the editor doesn't believe it satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and has explained why in the article (see also Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not and Wikipedia:Notability). Please either work to improve the article if the topic is worthy of inclusion in Wikipedia or discuss the relevant issues at its talk page. If you remove the {{prod}} template, the article will not be deleted, but note that it may still be sent to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.

AfD nomination of Starfleet General Orders[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

An editor has nominated Starfleet General Orders, an article on which you have worked or that you created, for deletion. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also "What Wikipedia is not").

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Starfleet General Orders and please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 04:29, 1 January 2008 (UTC)

italicizing titles[edit]

Hi, rather than putting double quotes around titles, you can use doubled single quotes to produce italics.

For example, ''Temples of Syrinx'' renders as Temples of Syrinx.

The slant "I" button will put these around any text you have highlighted. --Jtir (talk) 20:02, 27 January 2008 (UTC)

WikiProject Texas A&M

Howdy! As a current or past contributor to a related article, I thought I'd let you know about WikiProject Texas A&M, a collaborative effort to improve Wikipedia's coverage of Texas A&M University. If you would like to participate, you can visit the project page, where you can join the project and see a list of open tasks and related articles. Thanks and Gig 'em!

April 2008[edit]

Information.svg Please remember to mark your edits as minor if (and only if) they genuinely are minor edits (see Help:Minor edit). Marking a major change as a minor one is considered poor etiquette. The rule of thumb is that only an edit that consists solely of spelling corrections, formatting changes, or rearranging of text without modifying content should be flagged as a 'minor edit.' Thank you. --EEMIV (talk) 02:46, 29 April 2008 (UTC)


USEYOURNAME Greetings and Welcome! I noticed that your Username shows up red when you post an edit -- in case you were wondering why, this is because your userpage is devoid of content. If you were to place anything at all on your userpage (text, photographs, etc.), your username would then appear blue by default. By convention, most serious contributing editors place information about themselves on their userpages, and as a result, editors whose usernames are still red may appear to other editors as lacking a serious motivation in both editing Wikipedia articles as well as joining the Wikipedia community at large. I therefore recommend that you place something on your userpage, such as information as to where you live or what your hobbies are. You can check out other editors' userpages to get an idea of what is normally included (find them easiest by checking the history tab on randomly chosen yet substantial articles), and even copy/paste from their userpages (modifying the information to reflect your's, of course).

Please don't remove {{or}} tags[edit]


Your recent edit to the Dinosaur Comics article inadvertently removed an [original research?] tag from some questionable material in the article. Please make sure to leave all tags intact if you are moving sentences around in an article. Thanks, Politizer (talk) 02:44, 22 September 2008 (UTC)

I agree that the parallel is pretty strong, but unfortunately our opinions don't matter. If the opinion isn't attested somewhere in a valid third-party publication (for example, an online review of Dinosaur Comics that specifically says something like, "And one plot arc had Utahraptor visiting a mirror universe based on the Mirror Universe in Star Trek," or an interview in which Ryan North states that he intended to parody Star Trek), then we shouldn't include that comparison in the article no matter how we word it. If you manage to track down, however, a review or interview that can be used as a source (either a source claiming that North was intentionally parodying Star Trek; or a source pointing out the parallels between the two mirror universe stories without necessarily making any claims about North's intention; or a source discussing how the "Mirror, Mirror" episode of Star Trek has spawned multiple spinoffs and then mentioning Dinosaur Comics as one), then you are welcome to integrate that information back into the article. Until then, however, we can't speculate on whether or not there is any doubt about that parallel, because just saying "there's no doubt" is not something that can really be verified.
Thanks for your message. Politizer (talk) 04:39, 22 September 2008 (UTC)

Ada Lovelace[edit]

I reverted your change as section titles should follow the guidelines here (see bullet 4 in the Article title section, which applies to these section titles as well). Happy editing. (John User:Jwy talk) 05:55, 15 October 2008 (UTC)

Sorry, I looked too quickly and saw career -> Career and didn't notice that Early went away. My apologies. (John User:Jwy talk) 14:37, 15 October 2008 (UTC)

LASFS dues are $3 per meeting, not $5[edit]

Way back in July of last year, you changed the listed dues amount on the Los Angeles Science Fantasy Society page from the correct value of $3 to $5. Maybe you got it confused with the new member fee, which is $5? In any case, I just fixed it. Thought you should know. JesseW, the juggling janitor 07:34, 23 January 2009 (UTC)

December 2009[edit]

Information.svg Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. When you make a change to an article, please provide an edit summary, which you forgot to do before saving your recent edit to Brazil (film). Doing so helps everyone to understand the intention of your edit. It is also useful when reading the edit history of the page. Thank you.

Audio theatre an article to audio dramas[edit]

Please if you have time and you know anything to it (I have seen that you have made edits in the article area which owns relations on it - Dark Empire) , please look on the article Audio theatre, somebody placed a erase discussion on it. after we have had a merge discussion. It would be interesting what you would say to the merge and the delete discussion. )-: --Soenke Rahn (talk) 02:58, 22 December 2010 (UTC)

Notification: changes to "Mark my edits as minor by default" preference[edit]

Hello there. This is an automated message to tell you about the gradual phasing out of the preference entitled "Mark all edits minor by default", which you currently have (or very recently had) enabled.

On 13 March 2011, this preference was hidden from the user preferences screen as part of efforts to prevent its accidental misuse (consensus discussion, guidelines for use at WP:MINOR). This had the effect of locking users in to their existing preference, which, in your case, was true. To complete the process, your preference will automatically be changed to false in the next few days. This does not require any intervention on your part and all users will still be able to manually mark their edits as being minor in the usual way.

For well-established users such as yourself there is a workaround available involving custom JavaScript. If you have any problems, feel free to drop me a note.

Thank you for your understanding and happy editing :) Editing on behalf of User:Jarry1250, LivingBot (talk) 20:50, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

License tagging for File:StrategiconLogo.gif[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:StrategiconLogo.gif. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information.

To add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia. For help in choosing the correct tag, or for any other questions, leave a message on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 09:06, 8 July 2011 (UTC)
