Re:Solitaire algorithm[edit]

Hi FiP,
Sorry to have done that, perhaps I should have notified you first. I was looking through new pages trying to filter them out. The reason i marked yours for speedy deletion was that it was just a little synopsis about the book, rather than an article about it. It did not have much context to it, so it was hard to decipher exactly what was going on. I guess it was a judgement call on both my and whoever deleted it's part that the article was too difficult to understand from the context provided.
What I suggest you do, is go to Cryptonomicon and either post on the talk page about what you'd like to add, or just add it and see what people think. Since that page is not very long yet, what you want to add probably belongs there, rather than its own page. Anyways, sorry to shock you with that, I'll try to give more explanations in general from now on when marking things for deletion.
One last thing, if someone marks one of your pages for speedy deletion and you see it, you can always post on the articles discussion page and contest the speedy deletion. The most likely argument is that the article might be valid enough to merit "Articles for deletion", in which case it would take a week for people to vote for and against it, before its deleted.

allright. but I DID write something in the article's discution :) anyways... I just read the cryptonomicon article and saw that the Solitaire algorithm link was red; that's why I added an exerpt from the book. I will see if i can add something to the main article. Allright thanks for your response :) FiP 08:32, 27 Jul 2004 (UTC)
K, yeah I'm not a sysop so I'm not sure why it was deleted if you wrote something, glad its mostly cleared up at least. (; siroχo 09:09, Jul 27, 2004 (UTC)

Thanks, but...[edit]

Thanks for your involvement and your attempts at maintenance, really, but unless you're really familiar with what is and what is not a candidate for speedy deletion, I'd ask you to avoid that area of maintenance. Calibrate is a dicdef, and unfortunately, dicdefs are not candidates for speedy deletion at this time. In the future, please list such articles on Wikipedia:Votes for deletion instead. Thanks. blankfaze | (беседа!) 13:20, 3 Aug 2004 (UTC)

P.S., I redirected it to Calibration. blankfaze | (беседа!) 13:23, 3 Aug 2004 (UTC)
there's no need to be so condescending. I was under the impression that such poor "dicdefs" were unanimously voted for deletion (see Votes_for_deletion#24-hours). If you disagreed with my decision to delete the article, why did you do it anyway? You say that I should have listed the page on VfD.. but you didn't list it there either; You just deleted its contents and turned it into a redirect. FiP 08:57, 4 Aug 2004 (UTC)
Sorry if I came off rude. I have to do this sort of thing all the time because people don't take the time to read the policy, and it just gets annoying I guess. But I apologise. Anyhow, just because something will get unanimously voted for deletion at VfD does not make it a candidate for speedy deletion. So, in the future, just please stick to the cases on Wikipedia:Candidates for speedy deletion. Furthermore, I was only saying that if you come across any article you think ought be deleted but which is not a candidate for speedy deletion, you should list it on VfD. In this case, a redirect was a more logical solution. Thanks, again, and sorry if this message came off rude too. blankfaze | (беседа!) 17:44, 4 Aug 2004 (UTC)
It's allright. I learn from my mistakes ^^ see ya. FiP 18:05, 4 Aug 2004 (UTC)


Kikooooooooooooooooooo de mowa. Mowa c'est Phoenix lol

salut 'toa'; elle est fun ta page ^^

Adventure game[edit]


There is an enormous backlog at Wikipedia:Translation into English#French-to-English, more than for all other languages combined. I see you are signed up at Wikipedia:Translators_available#French-to-English. Would you be at all interested in taking on one of these articles? (Full disclosure: this is a bit of a "mass mailing", I'm working my way down the whole list of French-to-English translators.) -- Jmabel 00:11, Oct 10, 2004 (UTC)

Article Licensing[edit]

Hi, I've started a drive to get users to multi-license all of their contributions that they've made to either (1) all U.S. state, county, and city articles or (2) all articles, using the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike (CC-by-sa) v1.0 and v2.0 Licenses or into the public domain if they prefer. The CC-by-sa license is a true free documentation license that is similar to Wikipedia's license, the GFDL, but it allows other projects, such as WikiTravel, to use our articles. Since you are among the top 2000 Wikipedians by edits, I was wondering if you would be willing to multi-license all of your contributions or at minimum those on the geographic articles. Over 90% of people asked have agreed. For More Information:

To allow us to track those users who muli-license their contributions, many users copy and paste the "{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}" template into their user page, but there are other options at Template messages/User namespace. The following examples could also copied and pasted into your user page:

Option 1
I agree to [[Wikipedia:Multi-licensing|multi-license]] all my contributions, with the exception of my user pages, as described below:


Option 2
I agree to [[Wikipedia:Multi-licensing|multi-license]] all my contributions to any [[U.S. state]], county, or city article as described below:

Or if you wanted to place your work into the public domain, you could replace "{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}" with "{{MultiLicensePD}}". If you only prefer using the GFDL, I would like to know that too. Please let me know what you think at my talk page. It's important to know either way so no one keeps asking. -- Ram-Man (comment| talk)

Your Stress[edit]

Perfectly percolated coffee, Esperanza's own blend.

Hi there FiP. I see from your userpage that your Wikistress is quite high, sit back, and have a relaxing cup of coffee, courtesy of Esperanza. (I bought you a beer aswell if you dont like how I sugared your coffee.;) If you want help with anything at all, let me know. Bon Appetit! Banes 18:58, 6 October 2005 (UTC)

A good mug of beer.

Wow! that's very nice ^^, thanks

Vandalism of Ships of EVE Online page[edit]

Hey, I saw your speedy reversion of the aforementioned page, and would like to say thanks. A series of IP addresses very similar to that one have been vandalizing the page over the last few days, as you may or may not have seen on the history list.

I'm rather "new" to Wikipedia, in the sense that I've no idea what to do in this case. I traced two of the IP addresses (they all begin with 222.15~), and found they came from the same broadband provider. I suspect this is being done by a single person, who has a dynamic IP. (I'm just guessing here, of course.) I guess my question is, is there a way to prevent this vandalism from occuring again? The exact same changes are being made to the article each time.

Sorry if this isn't meant to go here, but I'm not sure of where to put it either. By what I've seen on the site, talk pages are the closest things to a Private Message.--Jsloan31 12:03, 7 April 2006 (UTC)

....Weeeeeeeeeell, i'm not an admin or anything, so I just revert (Help:Reverting) the changes made by a vandal when i spot them. only Administrators can "block" a user, or an ip, from editing; but i don't think one would block all ips starting with "222.15*.*.*", we don't want to prevent all members of an isp from editing because of the actions of some/one individual(s).
If this vandal continues, you/we/someone (^^) could report him (Wikipedia:Administrator intervention against vandalism), and put a warning on his userpage (as I did, see List of warning templates).
FiP 12:12, 7 April 2006 (UTC)
Will continue to monitor and change back their edits if it carries on. I already put the first vandalism warning on the page, but each time the edits are made, it's by a new IP. I'll look into reporting them if it carries on. Thanks. --Jsloan31 12:18, 7 April 2006 (UTC)

AfD Vote[edit]

You should probably list Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Boo baa boy on that day's list of articles for deletion so people know to vote on it. Recury 01:16, 5 May 2006 (UTC)

Image in your user page[edit]

Hello! I just noticed you are using Image:2000-jpb.jpg in your user page. Unluckily, images licensed under the Fair use claim cannot be used in User pages, talk pages, categories or templates due the #9th Fair use criteria. I advice you to remove it and replace it with a free version (in example, Image:Wikipe-tan head.png). If you have any question, just ask in my talk page. Thanks for understanding! -- ReyBrujo 01:51, 6 September 2006 (UTC)

Oh! That's too bad :(
I guess i'll remove it then. Thanks for the heads up.

How am I a bully when I'm being constantly picked on? 18:25, 23 January 2007 (UTC)

well both of you are just reverting each other's edits, without any kind of discution. FiP Как вы думаете? 18:27, 23 January 2007 (UTC)
No discussion to have, it's just vandalism. I warned him: now blocked for 24 hours. Moreschi Deletion! 18:34, 23 January 2007 (UTC)
well I guess that's that.

Disputed fair use rationale for Image:Comic-exit-cover.jpg[edit]
