Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia, your addition of one or more external links to the page William Billings has been reverted.
Your edit here was reverted by an automated bot that attempts to remove unwanted links and spam from Wikipedia. The external link you added or changed is on my list of links to remove and probably shouldn't be included in Wikipedia. The external links I reverted were matching the following regex rule(s): mysite\.verizon\.net (links:, (redirect from
If you were trying to insert an external link that does comply with our policies and guidelines, then please accept my creator's apologies and feel free to undo the bot's revert. However, if the link does not comply with our policies and guidelines, but your edit included other changes to the article, feel free to make those changes again without re-adding the link.

Hamtramck, Michigan[edit]

It would be helpful if you put in a reference to show the connection of Warith Deen Mohammed to the city. A bunch of Hamtramck residents, etc., got purged earlier because of a lack of references. Just a suggestion. Happy editing. 7&6=thirteen (talk) 21:02, 19 May 2009 (UTC) Stan

In Warith Deen Mohammed I've tried to clean up the notes/references. A few of the links are bad, and a few I did not complete. Cheers! 7&6=thirteen (talk) 12:56, 20 May 2009 (UTC) Stan
Glad to see that you are putting all those people back who belong there. Mrs. Hoxie (phonetic) was big in tennis many years ago, and I think deserves mention. But we (meaning you, as I've got "real life" work that needs to be done right now) need to add sources/citations. This is how the last 'ax murders' came about in this article (or rather, that was the justification. Keep up the good work.
I also suggest (respectfully) that you put something on your User Page, as you will not then be listed in red in the edit histories, and this will make you less of a target (for some). Best regards. 7&6=thirteen (talk) 17:01, 20 May 2009 (UTC) Stan
Yikes! edit conflict here on Talk page! Wow! you've done major work on this interesting figure (W.D. Mohammed). A rank newbie, I attempted to add a few more Hamtramck people. Do I need outside refs if the person's WP article mentions the Hamtramck connection? Still don't know how to make a user page or what to put there Finn Froding (talk) 17:07, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
User page is a tab at the top of your User Talk page (above). Just click on it, and write something (anything will do). Or you can click on your red name in the edit history of Hamtramck, Michigan, and proceed from there. I think that there is a page called WP:user page that gives examples. As to W.D. Muhammed, all \I did was ry to clean up the references. I actually agree with some of the editors on the Warith Deen Mohammed discussion page that this might be a little too rah-rah WP:NPOV, and the accumulation of sources aren't as deep as one might at first think. Anyway, I try not to get in the way of the good 'Wiki work' that is being done by somebody else, and let people work without undue interference from me. If I can help in any way, let me know. {:}> 7&6=thirteen (talk) 17:45, 20 May 2009 (UTC) Stan

Sorry, I forgot to answer your first question. I don't know the real answer to that: if there article says that they are born in Hamtramck, etc., do you need a source? What I know is that sources are preferred, and they make it far less likely that somebody will come along (as just recently happened in the Hamtramck article, and start chopping stuff. That's one of the good reasons why I always try to put in citations for content that I add. That's just MHO. 7&6=thirteen (talk) 17:49, 20 May 2009 (UTC) Stan

Justin Morgan[edit]

Hello - I am just curious if you have a source regarding Justin Morgan's wife's cause of death. It looks like you added she died in childbirth, but she actually died 10 days after the baby, Polly, was born. At first I assumed the same thing (complications from giving birth), but I did find a source claiming she died of TB. I'll try to find that source again ... I just have it in my family history notes.

Reply from SirSwindon[edit]

More than fair. I doubt if there is much interest in the old AVC noting the few number of hits to the page. I doubt if many of the members are still with us! Sirswindon (talk) 22:07, 8 May 2013 (UTC)

American Veterans Committee[edit]

You turned American Veterans Committee into an article on the 2013 organization. I see no indication that the 2013 incarnation is notable, while the 1943 organization clearly is. If no evidence of notability is added, I'll revert back to the version of the article that covered the 1943 organization. See also Talk:American Veterans Committee. Yours, Huon (talk) 02:15, 13 May 2013 (UTC)

Huon, I separated the two articles because I realized that the article because the addition of material on the new organization had led to confusion. Certainly the new organization has not yet achieved the notability of the old one--but as a new organization with some strong backing, it has the potential for notability, and it makes some sense to keep the existing organization at the main heading, with a clear link to the defunct one. On the other hand, the material on the new organization has been added by suspicious hands: Y2kdsp007 is listed as a sockpuppet, while VeteranUSA1 is a new user without a talk page; perhaps the latter could offer a rationale for retaining the entry. If you want to revert the AVC article to refer to the 1943 organization, I trust your judgment on this, but it would be well to make it clear that there is a new organization using the same name.

On this Wikipedia hard to offend some people and their national languages​​, ignoring the facts and international documents. The fact that the Serbian and Croatian two different standard languages, here it does not matter how big the difference is, it deals with linguistics. Why did you lie about that?

What are these languages:

Alexander Bondurant[edit]

This is an automated message from MadmanBot. I have performed a search with the contents of Alexander Bondurant, and it appears to be very similar to another Wikipedia page: Alexander H. Bondurant. It is possible that you have accidentally duplicated contents, or made an error while creating the page— you might want to look at the pages and see if that is the case. If you are intentionally trying to rename an article, please see Help:Moving a page for instructions on how to do this without copying and pasting. If you are trying to move or copy content from one article to a different one, please see Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia and be sure you have acknowledged the duplication of material in an edit summary to preserve attribution history.

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. MadmanBot (talk) 18:29, 7 November 2013 (UTC)

I have done so. The entry at Alexander H. Bondurant now directs to Alexander Bondurant where his name is given correctly as Alexander Lee Bondurant. I should have followed WP:Moving a page. Finn Froding (talk) 18:42, 7 November 2013 (UTC)

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Sixto may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "()"s. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.
