The Ideal Scout[edit]

Good job, creating The Ideal Scout. It was deserving of its own article, and doing so nicely cleaned up the R. Tait McKenzie article. BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 00:25, 18 February 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Speedy deletion nomination of Beach Bunny Swimwear[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Beach Bunny Swimwear requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about an organization or company, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, you can place a request here. Talpatra (talk) 14:59, 21 March 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

WHAT THE FUCK!!![edit]

How dare you convert an article (Lotus throne) to the appalling sfn style, in total breach of WP:CITEVAR, without leaving any hint of of what you are doing in edit summaries. This is seriously bad behaviour, & you should be blocked. Johnbod (talk) 16:54, 12 January 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Johnbod, I suggest you read up on WP:NPA. Your messages here and elsewhere are troubling; from what I can tel Evrik did what they felt was best for the article, which is perfectly acceptable. That you don't like it is not reason to insult them and threaten them with a block (which no admin would even consider anyway). Primefac (talk) 10:54, 13 January 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • I'm also puzzled as to what's so "appalling" about {{sfn}}. It gives linkage from the cites to the refs, for one thing. If you object to the use of years, then that's {{sfnp}} anyway, not {{sfn}}. Andy Dingley (talk) 20:35, 13 January 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

DYK for Margrethe Parm[edit]

Updated DYK query.svgOn 30 July 2022, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Margrethe Parm, which you recently nominated. The fact was ... that in 1946, Margrethe Parm (pictured) was appointed the director of a women's prison that had been used as a political prison during the German occupation of Norway? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Margrethe Parm. You are welcome to check how many pageviews the nominated article or articles got while on the front page (here's how, Margrethe Parm), and if they received a combined total of at least 416.7 views per hour (i.e., 5,000 views in 12 hours or 10,000 in 24), the hook may be added to the statistics page. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.
