RfA thank-spam[edit]

Broom icon.svg
Epbr123/Archive 2, I wish to tender my sincere thanks for your support in my successful request for adminship, which ended with 37 supports, 2 opposes, and 2 neutral. The results of the RfA are extremely bittersweet because of the recent departure of my nominator, Rudget. Hopefully I can live up to his and your expectations. I would especially like to thank Epbr123 and TomStar81 for mentioning that they were preparing to offer me a nomination. The past week has been one of the most stressful weeks in my life, and I appreciate your vote of confidence in me. If you ever need anything, just get in touch. -MBK004 20:56, 24 January 2008 (UTC)

My RfA[edit]

wikipedia:requests for adminship/DDima Thanks for your support at my request for adminship, which passed today with 42/0/0!

I would like to thank Wizardman for nominating me, Epbr123/Archive 2 and everyone else for their support and comments. I'll continue with contributing to the encyclopedia's content (hopefully writing an FA here and there :) and will help out with admin-related tasks which you just entrusted me with. If you need any help, don't hesitate to ask!

Thanks again, —dima/talk/ 01:47, 26 January 2008 (UTC)

Today's Featured Article[edit]

I moved AKA up to Jan. 29th instead of Feb. 14th, because that's the day of the sorority's incorporation, as seen here. Thanks. miranda 05:10, 26 January 2008 (UTC)

Kent assessments[edit]

Do you fancy doing some assessments? I've assessed all outstanding Kent articles that I've not edited myself. The 26 outstanding articles are either created by myself or ones that I've edited substantially. Mjroots (talk) 12:10, 26 January 2008 (UTC)


Epbr123/Archive 2, Thank you for your support in my RFA which passed 43/0/1. I would like to especially thank Bibliomaniac15 for being my nominator and admin coach. I would also like to thank Rudget for being my co-nominator. I'm sure that I can live up to the community's expectations as an administrator, and not totally mess everything up. Thanks again for your support! Malinaccier (talk) 17:21, 26 January 2008 (UTC)

My RFA[edit]

Admin mop.PNG Thanks!
Epbr123/Archive 2, thank you for showing your support in my RFA which passed with 38 support, 0 oppose, and 0 neutral! I also want to give special thanks to my Admin Coach and nominator, Useight for all of his help and support. I promise that I'll give my best effort as an admin, and I hope that your confidence in me proves to be justified. If I can ever be of any help, please let me know. In the mean time, I have some cleaning to do.

Have a great day! Jauerbackdude?/dude. 20:09, 26 January 2008 (UTC)

a thank you note[edit]

John William Waterhouse The Lady of Shalott.jpg Thanks for participating in my RfA!
Although it failed 43/27/0, I'm happy because the outcome has been very helpful in many meaningful ways. Your support and remarks contributed so much to this. If you followed my RfA you know what happened. Most of the editors who posted opposing opinions have never edited with me. Some articles I edit deal with controversial topics and with respect to a very few of these, editors who didn't know much about me had some worries about confrontational editing and civility. Since I support their high standards I can easily (and will gladly) address this. The support and ecouragement to run again soon has been outstanding, thanks again. Cheers! Gwen Gale (talk) 05:28, 26 January 2008 (UTC)

Independent Schools Barbarians[edit]

Four people who know nothing about Rugby Union and Wikipedia deletes a really interesting entry about a very significant new initiative in UK and Irish Rugby. A perfect example of everything that is wrong about Wikipedia! Admins playing God! Paste (talk) 22:45, 26 January 2008 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Cordelia's Dad[edit]

Could you clarify why you think the sourcing of the article is too trivial? As of now the references run to ca. 4,000 words from three countries, that's about ten times as much as the article itself. I'm not aware of any other instance where this would be considered trivial coverage. Thanks, trialsanderrors (talk) 15:03, 28 January 2008 (UTC)

Your thoughts?[edit]

Epbr, if you have a moment, I'd love to hear your thoughts on this topic. If you'd rather e-mail me, that would be fine, too. Best regards, SandyGeorgia (Talk) 15:34, 28 January 2008 (UTC)

I personally think that although this is a long list that you created, it would be better off merged to Belladonna (porn star). Thoughts?--h i s s p a c e r e s e a r c h 01:43, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

Tumbler Ridge[edit]

Thanks for looking over Tumbler Ridge. The FAC is 5 days old without any feedback. Could you please comment there: Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/Tumbler Ridge, British Columbia? Is there any aspect or quality that you found lacking? I need someone to break the silence and point me at something I can pursue. --maclean 06:34, 31 January 2008 (UTC)

RfA thanks[edit]

I am not one for sending round pretty pictures, but after my recent RfA, which passed 68/1/7, I am now relaxed and this is to thank you for your support. I will take on board all the comments made and look forward to wielding the mop with alacrity. Or two lacrities. --Rodhullandemu (Talk) 21:14, 31 January 2008 (UTC)

Thanks alot for giving suggessions to improve the article. I request you to help me in making the article a Good Article.Thank You Sreekanthv (talk) 12:08, 1 February 2008 (UTC)

Murton and Dawdon[edit]

Hi, I noticed that you were involved in giving the article on Dawdon a rating last year, and wondered if you could take another look at it, as I have been doing quite a lot of work on it. Perhaps you may feel it could be upgraded?? (Another Wiki person HAS upgraded it, but I don't think that is official, cos no user name. Could you also take a look at the Murton article, please, and give that a grade too. Many, many thanks! Seahamlass 12:29, 1 February 2008 (UTC)

Your recent AWB edits[edit]

I notice that you've recently been running AWB to change occurrences of compared to to compared with. The two do not quite mean the same thing, however. Compared with is an examination of the similarities and differences; compared to is a partial comparison of either the similarities or the differences. --Malleus Fatuorum (talk) 19:31, 3 February 2008 (UTC)


Just a belated note of thanks for your input on Wormshill which achieved FA while I was on a wikibreak. Cheers Dick G (talk) 23:50, 3 February 2008 (UTC)

RfA doh![edit]

Hi Epbr123, Guess what I only found today! I'd wondered what happened, but assumed you were rather busy... Anyway, I'm still willing and able to launch this, if you are. I should make one correction to the nomination intro you provided, I've actually been the main editor of 3 FAs: Felice Beato, Pierre Rossier, and Adolfo Farsari. Thanks!

I have nominated Biruaslum, an article you created, for deletion. I do not feel that this article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and have explained why at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Biruaslum.

Bizarre cleanuping[edit]

Hi there. Can I ask why you are cleaning up some articles, but in doing so are replacing valid spaces with the HTML code for spaces? It seems completely pointless to me and in fact seems to be worse that not cleaned up. If there is something I'm missing please let me know but it seems really bizarre and actually making the articles worse for editors who have to content with HTML coding instead of normal text. Canterbury Tail talk 00:00, 17 February 2008 (UTC)

Okay fine, I understand now. But there was no need to be so harsh in your reply, that was a bit uncalled for. All I asked for was some clarification of the situation which seemed very odd to me, but yes the MOS does explain and for that I apologise. Commenting that someone should not revert edits by established users seem to imply that established users edits are always right, which they are not always, and newcomers should stay away from them. Canterbury Tail talk 00:09, 17 February 2008 (UTC)
You should have asked before reverting. Epbr123 (talk) 00:37, 17 February 2008 (UTC)
Yes I should, and I have since also reverted my other reverts. However my comment on the harshness of your comment still stands. Canterbury Tail talk 01:01, 17 February 2008 (UTC)
I'm sorry. Although your comments and edit summaries weren't entirely friendly. Epbr123 (talk) 01:04, 17 February 2008 (UTC)
Shall we admit we were both wrong (on differing aspects), agree to disagree, and move on with our editing? Seems fair and amicable on both sides. Canterbury Tail talk 01:06, 17 February 2008 (UTC)
Fair enough. Epbr123 (talk) 01:08, 17 February 2008 (UTC)
Actually I don't know why I said agree to disagree, and we weren't really disagreeing over anything, I just jumped the gun and edited before seeking clarification. Aw well, continue the good work and happy editing. Canterbury Tail talk 01:09, 17 February 2008 (UTC)

Thanks Re:FAC[edit]

Just wanted to say thanks for all your various copyedits and changes for the featured article candidates I've submitted over the past month. They've never been very big in terms of bytes, but they've always been very big in terms of content. I really appreciate it, and never let it be said that your changes don't mean anything — they certainly did for me. Thanks a lot. JKBrooks85 (talk) 06:19, 17 February 2008 (UTC)

Thank you for pointing out a range of MoS issues in my recent FAC article Terra Nova Expedition. I'm much more careful now. If you can find time, perhaps you'd look at my Discovery Expedition article, currently waiting, unloved and unregarded, for a peer review. I hope this demonstrates a much better awareness of MoS.

Paleolithic-style diet[edit]

I appreciate your tedious work on this article. Thank you! --Phenylalanine (talk) 11:51, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Hi, quick question: do inline sources need to be in numerical order, for example [1][16][33], as opposed to [16][1][33]. Thanks! --Phenylalanine (talk) 02:49, 20 February 2008 (UTC)
They don't have to be, but some users prefer it as it looks better. Epbr123 (talk) 09:47, 20 February 2008 (UTC)

Another quick question: Is the punctuation in the following sentence correct? (In the paper where I found it, the quoted text is a sentence beginning with a capital and ending with a period.) According to Milton, "there is little evidence to suggest that human nutritional requirements or human digestive physiology were significantly affected by such diets at any point in human evolution." I did check WP:PUNC, but I still have doubts? Thanks! --Phenylalanine (talk) 12:20, 24 February 2008 (UTC)

Opinion please- image formatting[edit]

I am of the view that a image should not contain any formatting information such as |left|237px, as the formatting should be left to preferences set in the user browser. As stated in the Wikipedia:Manual of Style#Images.

This rule is broken when the image is in portrait ( there is a |upright for this) and overwhelms the page- or is in an infobox when it is usually necessary. |left| should only be used to make a head face into the page.

I mention this as there seems to be a wave of 'format' adding going on with Kent articles, and I wondered if there was a AWB or a similar tool is programmed differently, or if I interpret the Manual of Style differently from others or if there are enthusiastic editors who are unaware of this recommendation?ClemRutter (talk) 20:11, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

  • When I next run AWB, I'll try to remove the size formatting from non-infobox images. Although, there are many users who are against this rule and it is rarely enforced at WP:FAC, WP:GAN, etc. There is no rule against left aligned images, as Wikipedia:Manual of Style#Images states, "Multiple images in the same article can be staggered right-and-left". Epbr123 (talk) 21:06, 19 February 2008 (UTC)
    • Thanks. I do most of them by hand when I see them- I was just doubting my sanity! And OK course, now I have mentioned it, the problem seems less severe, but it is a good idea to check when you are doing a batch run. ClemRutter (talk) 23:10, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Hi, I see you have just added a series of articles on aspects of UK geology to WP UK geography. Most of these are or ought to be in WP geology. Rather than putting them all in both perhaps there should be a daughter project UK Geology? Pterre (talk) 00:25, 21 February 2008 (UTC)

  • It doesn't do any harm having an article included in more than one project, and is probably an advantage as it gets the article more attention. I don't know whether there are users willing to set up UK Geology project. Epbr123 (talk) 00:33, 21 February 2008 (UTC)

There's only one question that I'd like to ask to help me in writing a nom. How do you think you have improved from your RFC? bibliomaniac15 02:07, 23 February 2008 (UTC)
I feel my level of civility has greatly improved since the RFC. At the time, I was more concerned with imposing my views at AfD than on getting on with other users. The RFC taught me the importance of working well with others, as having disputes over minor issues is a waste of time and counterproductive to improving the encyclopedia. I now get on well with some of the participants in the RFC, and I hope I am now more sensitive to the feelings of other users. I gave a similar answer in my Editor review. Epbr123 (talk) 03:04, 23 February 2008 (UTC)
That wouldn't be my opinion. What does keeping your head down for a few months prove to anyone? Once granted the bit you could revert to type couldn't you? --Malleus Fatuorum (talk) 03:21, 23 February 2008 (UTC)
I understand your concern. Epbr123 (talk) 09:59, 23 February 2008 (UTC)
Just for the record, and although my initial reaction was to oppose your RfA, I will not, as it may seem to others to be a tu quoque response on my part. --Malleus Fatuorum (talk) 00:32, 24 February 2008 (UTC)
I'm not one to badger people about civility, but try to assume good faith, please, Malleus. You might not support this user, but that's no reason to make assumptions. bibliomaniac15 18:56, 23 February 2008 (UTC)

Hello! As I teacher, I really like your Style and prose checklist and have added a link to it from my user page User:Le_Grand_Roi_des_Citrouilles#Essays:. As you can see, I also keep my own list, albeit a much shorter one. Best, --Le Grand Roi des CitrouillesTally-ho! 03:02, 25 February 2008 (UTC)

Your RfA[edit]

Hm, I'm in kind of an unfortunate situation with this. I'd really like to support, but I didn't think your answer really gave me enough to go on. You weren't angry with them? If someone calls your reply harsh and uncalled for, and you weren't angry at them, shouldn't you make an effort to clarify that you weren't? How would you word your reply if you had another chance? You do see what I'm saying about how your responses have the potential to cause unnecessary conflict, right?

I'm glad your RfA's passing, you're a highly qualified candidate. Like I said, I feel kind of insane not supporting based on one small thing, in the face of everything good you've done for the project. I'm not trying to badger you, we can just drop it if you'd prefer. What would you think of me leaving you another note at some later time to let you know how I think you're doing? Peace, delldot on a public computer talk 05:39, 25 February 2008 (UTC)

I know my response should have been softer, and if I had another chance my initial comment would have been something like, "Hi. I know my edits seemed odd but they were based on the guidelines at WP:MOS. It may be best to ask for clarification from users before reverting there edits in future, as there may be valid reason for them. Keep up the good work." To be honest, my wording was strong partly because I felt he would remember not to make the same mistake again if I made a big deal about it. However, in hindsight it was inappropriate of me to try to "discipline" an adult user like this. I myself will try to learn from this incident. I would appreciate any feedback in future, as my sole aim here is to be a good user and improve the encyclopedia. Epbr123 (talk) 10:37, 25 February 2008 (UTC)
Great, thanks for the thorough response. This is enough for me to support, which I'll do when I get home and into my real account (using a sock in an RfA... just... sketchy... :-]) Thanks for the dedication, see you around. Peace, delldot on a public computer talk 10:47, 25 February 2008 (UTC)

Admin coaching request[edit]

You have previously expressed an interest in undergoing the Admin coaching program. We're currently engaged in a program reset to help things move more smoothly in the future. If you are still interested in the program, please go to Wikipedia:Admin coaching/Requests for Coaching and re-list yourself under Current requests, deleting your entry from Older requests. Also, double-check to make sure coaching is right for you at theCoachee checklist; WP:Adoption or WP:Editor review may be more appropriate depending on your situation and aspirations. We should get back to you within a day or so, once a coaching relationship has been identified. Thank you. MBisanz talk 06:57, 25 February 2008 (UTC)

PR for "Irreplaceable"[edit]

Hi. Could you please take a look at this? I need more comments before I pass it for FAC. Thanks in advance. --Efe (talk) 07:25, 25 February 2008 (UTC)

alicia alighatti[edit]

I'm positive that Excalibur got her biography from an old version of her wikipedia article. I'm not sure what to do here since it can't be proven that it's circular. Vinh1313 (talk) 15:57, 26 February 2008 (UTC)

  • I agree. I does look as though it came from Wikipedia, as it's not Excalibur's usual style of writing. I think it's safe to say it can't be used as a reliable source here. Epbr123 (talk) 16:48, 26 February 2008 (UTC)

Reply to RFC comment[edit]

Hi. I really would like to support, but I'm concerned that the remorse is coming now when you've something to gain from it and you're on your best behaviour, rather than back when you didn't. That said, it's certainly better than nothing... give me a day or so to consider it, and I might change my vote to Support. Your answer to Q4 is actually quite encouraging on that front, as well. Lankiveil (speak to me) 05:07, 27 February 2008 (UTC).

The Corrs[edit]

Hi, I've addressed your concerns for The Corrs on this page. Please take the time from your busy RFA nomination to come and take a look here. Cheers. σмgнgσмg(talk) 05:23, 27 February 2008 (UTC)

There was really no need to address your concern raised on this page. I'd left a reason why. Please take another look. Thanks. σмgнgσмg(talk) 05:12, 28 February 2008 (UTC)

Quick favor to ask?[edit]

Could you do your thang and remove the unused cite template spaces and other space from Template:Project Chanology protests, February 10 2008 and Project Chanology? It would help to free up spaces in the article and reduce article size overall, which would be very helpful. Thanks so much for all the edits you've done in helping me with some articles I had at WP:FAC. Cirt (talk) 06:04, 27 February 2008 (UTC)

Thank you! Cirt (talk) 06:33, 27 February 2008 (UTC)

ANAK Society[edit]

On Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/ANAK Society, you said, "Logical quotation should be used, as per Wikipedia:Manual of Style#Quotation marks" ... can you check the article to verify that this suggestion/criterion has been satisfied? SandyGeorgia isn't sure it's been fixed. Thanks! —Disavian (talk/contribs) 20:47, 28 February 2008 (UTC)

Requesting peer review of List of unrecognized countries before listing as WP:FLC[edit]

Hi, I am requesting your time to peer review the List of unrecognized countries article. I would like to list it as a WP:FLC but feel that a peer review from you will help increase its chances of passing. Thanks for taking a look! Gary King (talk) 21:13, 28 February 2008 (UTC)

Please post your comments at Wikipedia:Peer review/List of unrecognized countries/archive1 and feel free to edit the article if you feel that certain things need to be modified and are fairly trivial. Gary King (talk) 21:17, 28 February 2008 (UTC)
I have responded. Please respond back. Thanks! Gary King (talk) 22:04, 28 February 2008 (UTC)

List of unrecognized countries has been nominated as a WP:FLC[edit]

I have just nominated List of unrecognized countries as a WP:FLC at Wikipedia:Featured list candidates/List of unrecognized countries/archive1 and would appreciate it if you could vote in it, criticize it, and hopefully eventually fall in love with the article. Also, feel free to edit the article if you feel that a minor edit is needed. Thanks! Gary King (talk) 06:17, 29 February 2008 (UTC)

Nominating List of recessions as a WP:FLC[edit]

Hi, I have nominated List of recessions as a WP:FLC at Wikipedia:Featured list candidates/List of recessions. I would appreciate it if you could look over the article and comment on the FLC. Thanks for your time! Gary King (talk) 01:29, 1 March 2008 (UTC)

GA Sweeps update[edit]

This is a form message being sent out to all of the GA sweeps reviewers. Thank you for all of your dedicated work in the difficult and time-consuming task of ensuring the quality of articles within the GA project. Many reviewers have taken time out of reviewing articles at WP:GAN (this may be one factor in the expansion of the backlog), writing articles, and probably getting some sleep! I have sent this message out to update you on our current progress and to remind you to please keep up with completing your reviews and updating GARs/holds. As of March 1, 2008, we have swept 20% of the 2,808 GAs we started with. At our current progress, all of the articles will be assessed in just under three years (based on when we started). If we want to complete the sweeps sooner, we need to continue reviewing at a higher rate (consider doing one or two more reviews a week or whatever you feel comfortable with) and inviting new, experienced reviewers. If you are taking a break, focusing on GAN, writing your own GAs, or are already reviewing articles like crazy, I still want to thank you for all of your hard work and hope you are pleased about our current progress. Keep up the good work and happy editing! --Nehrams2020 (talk) 09:04, 1 March 2008 (UTC)

AfD nomination of Chanel Chavez[edit]

An editor has nominated Chanel Chavez, 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/Chanel Chavez 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) 22:02, 1 March 2008 (UTC)

Your sock[edit]

Could you please label your sock as such on both your and the sock's userpages? I used to have one, but I found that it was too much work to operate one main account and one for grammatical maintenance. bibliomaniac15 00:34, 2 March 2008 (UTC)

admin nomination unsuccessful[edit]
