Reads like an Ad[edit]

Hello, Frecklefoot. Thank you for notifying that the iClone article needs to be more from a neutral point of view. I tried tried my best to maintain an unbiased point of view, and only stating facts about the software. I kindly ask if you could provide more suggestions on how to improve the article? Thank you very much. - Oxidus1 — Preceding unsigned comment added by Oxidus1 (talkcontribs) 03:00, 6 January 2014 (UTC)

I'll respond on it's talk page. — Frεcklεfσσt | Talk 16:25, 7 January 2014 (UTC)


Is that my english is bad. I'm just a Brazilian using the google translator. Can you make these two favors for me? João bonomo (talk) 14:42, 11 January 2014 (UTC)

What two favors? — Frεcklεfσσt | Talk 16:08, 11 January 2014 (UTC)

Voynich manuscript, etc.[edit]

I'm curious about that recent HerbalGram study and its alleged criticism by experts. The only source provided is to a blog entry by Nick Pelling, who seems to be a self-promoter here on Wikipedia. Reading his article, I'm not sure what makes him notable let alone an expect on Voynich. I'm not criticizing your edits, I'm just curious to know more about this guy and why his opinion on the recent study matters. --Spike Wilbury (talk) 15:17, 1 February 2014 (UTC)

I'm sure there are other criticisms of that study. They should be added as refs too. — Frεcklεfσσt | Talk 16:34, 1 February 2014 (UTC)
So you don't have any problem with Pelling promoting his own work here? The study was posting, and Pelling posted on the talk page objecting to it based on criticism that happened to be his own post from his blog. I'd hardly call that neutral. --Spike Wilbury (talk) 16:27, 2 February 2014 (UTC)
Go ahead and remove the ref, but I would like another that criticizes their "study", and another that supports it would be great too (if there are any). That's neutral. — Frεcklεfσσt | Talk 20:58, 2 February 2014 (UTC)

WP:VG Interview[edit]

This hasn't hit the mainstream yet, but today is an important day for WP:VG. We've reached our 10 year anniversary! The WP:VG Newsletter crew are interested in running a feature this quarter on the early days of WP:VG and because you are one of the earliest contributors to the WikiProject, we need your help. In the last 10 years a lot has changed and we'd love to hear your perspective on it. One of the biggest changes may be your level of participation in the WikiProject or even in Wikipedia generally. This is why I'm contacting you almost 2 months before the newsletter is due to come out (it's due on April 2). I'm hoping that you'll have time somewhere between now and then to answer a few general questions reflecting on WP:VG and Wikipedia in general. Please contact me here if you would be willing to answer a few questions for our anniversary article. If you can participate, please mark this beside your name on the list, and if you can't participate please also mark this on the list by deleting your name or overstriking it. I hope this will be a fun and interesting quarter for the WP:VG Newsletter! Thanks in advance. -Thibbs (talk) 12:41, 6 February 2014 (UTC)

  • Thanks again. I'll drop a note on your talk page in a few days when I've got a draft of the questions. -Thibbs (talk) 22:36, 6 February 2014 (UTC)
  • Hi, I've posted a preliminary set of five questions at my sandbox (linked above) so that you can get a sense of what kinds of questions I'll be asking. The final interview will probably be 10 to 15 questions in total. -Thibbs (talk) 12:32, 13 February 2014 (UTC)

Feedback needed on using special characters[edit]

Hello. Thank you for using VisualEditor! Having editors use it is the best way for the Wikimedia Foundation to develop it into the best tool it can be.

While we always welcome general feedback (please report any issues in Bugzilla in the "VisualEditor" product or drop your feedback on the central feedback page on, the developers are especially interested right now in feedback on the special character inserter. This new tool is used for inserting special characters (including symbols like , IPA pronunciation symbols, mathematics symbols, and characters with diacritics). It is intended to help people whose computers do not have good character inserters. For example, many Mac users prefer to use the extensive "Special Characters..." tool present at the bottom of the Edit menu in all applications or to learn the keyboard shortcuts for characters like ñ and ü.

The current version of the special characters tool in VisualEditor is very simple and very basic. It will be getting a lot of work in the coming weeks and months. It does not contain very many character sets at this time. (The specific character sets can be customized at each Wikipedia, so that each project could have a local version with the characters it wants.) But the developers want your ideas at this early stage about ways that the overall concept could be improved. I would appreciate your input on this question, so please try out the character inserter and tell me what changes to the design would (or would not!) best work for you.

Screenshot of the Insert menu in VisualEditor
The "insert" pulldown on the task bar of VisualEditor will lead you to the 'Special character' tool.
Screenshot of Special Characters tool
This is the Special character inserter as it appears on many wikis. (Some may have customized it.) Your feedback on this tool is particularly important.

Issues you might consider:

  • How often do you normally use Wikipedia's character inserters?
  • Which character sets are useful to you? Should it include all 18 of the character sets provided in the wikitext editor's newer toolbar at the English Wikipedia, the 10 present in the older editor toolbar, or some other combination of character sets?
  • How many special characters would you like to see at one time?
    • Should there be a "priority" or "favorites" section for the 10 or 12 characters that most editors need most often? Is it okay if you need an extra click to go beyond the limited priority set?
    • How should the sections be split up? Should they be nested? Ordered?
    • How should the sections be navigated? Should there be a drop-down? A nested menu?
  • The wikitext editor has never included many symbols and characters, like and . Do you find that you need these missing characters? If the character inserter in VisualEditor includes hundreds or thousands of special characters, will it be overwhelming? How will you find the character you want? What should be done for users without enough space to display more than a few dozen characters?
  • Should the character inserter be statically available until dismissed? Should it hover near the mouse? Should it go away on every selection or 10 seconds after a selection with no subsequent ones?
  • Some people believe that the toolbar already has too many options—how would you simplify it?

The developers are open to any thoughts on how the special character inserter can best be developed, even if this requires significant changes. Please leave your views on the central feedback page, or, if you'd prefer, you can contact me directly on my talk page. It would be really helpful if you can tell me how frequently you need to use special characters in your typical editing and what languages or other special characters are important to you.

Thank you again for your work with VisualEditor and for any feedback you can provide. I really do appreciate it.

P.S. You might be interested in the current ideas about improving citations, too. Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 00:20, 18 February 2014 (UTC)

Koch media and Zenimax Media[edit]

Both are 2 of the largest private western game publisher's why are you removing them? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ushio01 (talkcontribs) 18:10, 5 March 2014 (UTC)

I undid all your recent edits because they broke the anchors in the article. If you read your talk page, you'd see the message I left explaining it. — Frεcklεfσσt | Talk 18:34, 5 March 2014 (UTC)
But looking at it now, the anchors seem to work fine. I don't know why the version I saw was messed up. Carry on. — Frεcklεfσσt | Talk 18:37, 5 March 2014 (UTC)

An RfC that you may be interested in...[edit]

As one of the previous contributors to {{Infobox film}} or as one of the commenters on it's talk page, I would like to inform you that there has been a RfC started on the talk page as to implementation of previously deprecated parameters. Your comments and thoughts on the matter would be welcomed. Happy editing!

Peace in[edit]

In peace in: I came across this interesting discussion wondering who was so kind to add an infobox to a dancer, finding that the one has also patient good answers ;) - deceased: normally a template goes on the otherwise unchanged user page, for example this. Even some pages of banned editors are tagged but kept, so we can still get inspiration. - Back to the infobox: I believe that {{infobox person}} is better, for education, awards, spouse, see for example Tatjana Gsovsky, --Gerda Arendt (talk) 13:12, 25 March 2014 (UTC)

I'm sorry, I'm afraid I don't know what you're asking or trying to tell me. Can you rephrase or point to the specific article you're discussing? — Frεcklεfσσt | Talk 13:30, 25 March 2014 (UTC)
You moved it out of context, never mind. Only after I hit save I noticed that it was an old discussion. The header "peace" and the topics seemed fresh ;) - About the infobox for Lucia Lacarra (or any other not too specialized person), I think that {{infobox person}} is better than {{infobox dancer}}, see above. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 14:18, 25 March 2014 (UTC)
You're right. The dancer template is pretty sparse on information. Go ahead and change it. I just used it because it's specific to dancers. — Frεcklεfσσt | Talk 14:26, 25 March 2014 (UTC)
Will you defend me if the arbitraton enforcers come and wikilawyer that it is adding an infobox which I am restricted not to do? --Gerda Arendt (talk) 14:31, 25 March 2014 (UTC)
Wait, what? I'll go ahead and change it, but I really have no interest in that article. I just added the infobox because it needed it. Are you allowed to edit infoboxes in they're already present in an article? — Frεcklεfσσt | Talk 14:56, 25 March 2014 (UTC)
Yes, I am. Feel free to add short ones to the many articles (including where I expanded a stub) that "need one" ;) --Gerda Arendt (talk) 13:41, 27 March 2014 (UTC)

Interview ready for responses[edit]

Hi Frecklefoot, April 2 is coming right up and the quarter is drawing to a close. Sorry it's taken me a bit of time to get this together. In reference to this previous discussion, the interview is now completed and I was hoping you could share your thoughts when you get a free moment this weekend. The numbering in the interview may change as I edit the thing into perfect shape after the responses have all come back, but the questions will stay the same and of course I won't modify your or anyone else's responses. You can respond here, at my talk page, or within the interview itself. Whatever is easiest. Thanks again for your help. -Thibbs (talk) 14:42, 28 March 2014 (UTC)

Impossible Mission[edit]


Explain to me how after looking at the video, that the game is not an exploration based platformer like Metroid, Montezuma etc? Branching paths, mutiple floors, full exploration. JakIIDax (talk) 16:35, 12 April 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for April 16[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited List of Apple II games, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages New wave and Breakout (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

About the list of Capcom's game[edit]

The new page that you created is too complicated. The old one is easy to read and understand. That's why I reverted it. Come on body (talk) 05:31, 17 April 2014 (UTC)

User:Come on body[edit]

Greetings. We ran into an issue with an editor a while back on List of Capcom games. After warning him on his talk page here, he continuously is removing my criticism from his talk page. By my understanding, he is not allowed to do this. Is this true or am I mistaken? Rilech (talk) 03:30, 20 April 2014 (UTC)

I just got an answer from another editor. I was indeed wrong. Thanks though. Rilech (talk) 03:48, 20 April 2014 (UTC)

Good Catch[edit]

I was working on breaking it into two sentences but scrapped the idea. Apparently I forgot to uncap where I was going to put the second sentence. Awesome job. Tivanir2 (talk) 14:09, 25 April 2014 (UTC)

April 2014[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to List of Electronic Arts games may have broken the syntax by modifying 2 "[]"s and 2 "{}"s likely mistaking one for another. 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.

Softporn Adventure, Commodore 64 version[edit]


I made a conversion of Softporn Adventure to the Commodore 64 using the original Apple II code. I feel someone else should edit the Wikipedia page but me.

I don't have any special ownership over this article. Your C64 conversion can't be added unless it is covered (discussed) by reliable third-party sources. You should bring this up on the Softporn Adventure Talk page, not here. — Frεcklεfσσt | Talk 15:20, 13 May 2014 (UTC)

May 2014 disambig contest: let's do it again![edit]

Greetings fellow disambiguator! Remember back in February when we made history by clearing the board for the first time ever, for the monthly disambiguation contest? Let's do it again in May! I personally will be aiming to lead the board next month, but for anyone who thinks they can put in a better effort, I will give a $10 Amazon gift card to any editor who scores more disambiguation points in May. Also, I will be setting up a one-day contest later in the month, and will try to set up more prizes and other ways to make this a fun and productive month. Cheers! bd2412 T 18:48, 28 April 2014 (UTC)


Hi Frεcklεfσσt! Thanks for reaching out. Yes, I've seen you around as well... you're quite the prolific editor. :) Unfortunately I never seem to have the time to be as active as I would like so I tend to only gravitate around a handful of pages where I feel that I can help make the best contribution with my time and perspective. But it's all good. Thanks again and cheers! (reposted from my talk page) BcRIPster (talk) 17:02, 9 May 2014 (UTC)

Yeah, I saw it. : ) — Frεcklεfσσt | Talk 17:04, 9 May 2014 (UTC)

Kelsey Grammer[edit]

No worries mate,

I got caught in the academic style which is a bit conservative. I wrote: 'Tossed salad and scrambled eggs'. This is because the song is 'Tossed salad and scrambled eggs', and the sentence concludes after that quote.

For example I would write: Kelsey, G. (199x). 'Tossed salad and scrambled eggs'.

An example of quote punctuation from the Sydney Law School Style guide: As Kirby J said, the Australian judge is ‘a riddle, wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma’.[1]

Another example of quote punctuation, in the Harvard style, being: Stewart (1982, p. 6) said: 'Engineers are vital to the survival of the planet'.[2]

I would also suggest that since you affirm that British punctuation is in use in this article, please consider that this article does not conform to the British punctuation style and so will need revision. For example, the American Psychological Association style guide[3] shows:

Style issue- To enclose a quotation use: American Style - Double quotation marks; British Style - Single quotation marks

Style issue- To enclose a quotation within a quotation use: American Style - Single quotation marks; British Style - Double quotation marks

Style issue - Place periods and commas use: American Style - Inside quotation marks; British Style - Outside quotation marks

All of the quotation marks within the 'Kelsey Grammer' article use the American punctuation style "double quote marks", rather than the British punctuation style 'single quote marks'. This may need revision of the article. For example the article currently has the American quotation style and the British punctuation style in this part of the article: and sang the closing theme "Tossed Salads and Scrambled Eggs."

Your comments are welcome as I am new to editing and I am now aware of the differing editorial styles that exist within Wikipedia and will have to adjust my style as needed.

P-day revert[edit]

I made several changes to clarify the exact nature and work load that comprises P-day (preperation day). You've reverted those changes under good intention etc. but I would like an explanation as to how my contribution did not serve to elucidate the workload of a missionary and the hours p/ week that a missionary is required to work/serve (which I don't find summarized in an easily accessible form anywhere on the page).

If you would please respond and let me know why you felt my contributions were of nil worth as to be reverted, I would appreciate it. I would like to come to an understanding of what you find objectionable (both stylistically, and materially) so I can amend my changes accordingly.

I feel that the inforamtion that I provided (that you reverted) is prescient and vital to both prospective misssionaries and the general public alike, to get an understanding of how much time said missionary has to take care of personal matters/wash clothes etc. I find it disingenious to refer to preperation day under the auspice of being an entire day of which said missionary can prepare/relax etc. before starting the next day. Whereas, the reality is that p-day is only 8 hours of the day, and in some missions, just getting laundry done by hand, buying groceries etc. can take up a large portion of that time. Also the total time 'on the clock' if you will, that a missionary is responsible for is not summarized anywhere in the wiki. Which I think is vital, considering both the manner and amount of time allocated for the missionaries mandate is essential.

Please provide concrete information as to why you reverted my original post, and recomendations as to what I should exclude/include/clarify to make the page even better.

Kind Wishes & God Bless. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:14, 7 June 2014 (UTC)

I've been off the 'pedia for a few days (daughter getting married and lots of relatives in town), but I see there is already a discussion under way on the Talk page where I started a topic on your changes. Go here to participate in the discussion. I may not participate for a few days, as relatives are still in town and I need to entertain them, but there are other editors actively discussing the changes.
You may want to create an account, however, as it guarantees more privacy and it makes it easier for other editors to contact you. Also sign your posts on Talk pages with 4 tildes (~~~~). Peace. — Frεcklεfσσt | Talk 14:17, 7 June 2014 (UTC)

Talk page blanking[edit]

Hi there. I did want to clarify with you directly that my comments on SNAAAAKE!!'s talk page were directed at them, not at you. When it comes to clear-cut vandalism, such as what's occurring at Talk:Dragon's Lair, reverting acts of vandalism generally doesn't count towards a 3RR violation. That said, there are better ways to handle the situation, such as a request for page protection or reporting the editor to the appropriate admin noticeboard. Notifying the project talk page is one way, as well, although it sometimes is better to go directly to the admins with a troublemaker. Thanks again for your help on this one. --McDoobAU93 19:00, 16 June 2014 (UTC)

Why should "History" be first?[edit]

Helo, Frecklefoot. I see you edited Astronomical Society of New South Wales to move the "History" section to the beginning of the article. The comment was "History" should be first. As a relatively new editor myself, I would like to understand the motivation for this, to improve my future articles. It seems the reverse of what the average reader would be interested to see; most want to know what the society is doing now, without having to scroll down past what happened in years gone by. Or at least, that is my expectation. Is there some guideline about what the order should be, or is this just a matter of personal preference? --Gronk Oz (talk) 00:29, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

Check out the Manual of Style to see what's expected. History first is always what I've seen, and I've been here for almost 12 years. I'm not good at finding specific policies, but the Astronomical Society of New South Wales article is part of several WikiProjects (see its talk page) and each should have its own Manual of Style. Read through them and see what they recommend for a project structure. If they say History should go at the bottom, go ahead and change it back. But for most articles I edit, History comes first. — Frεcklεfσσt | Talk 02:41, 28 July 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for the reply, Frecklefoot. I had checked the MoS before asking my question, and I could not see anything there that related. The closest I could find is Wikipedia:Manual_of_Style#Section_organization, which talks about the proper order of the front and back matter, but not the sections within the article itself. I am asking at the related projects to see whether they have any MoS supplements I should be aware of - that was a great tip, thanks. --Gronk Oz (talk) 05:48, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

Hi Frecklefoot, I’m currently working on the page for David M. Cote and I’m seeking out guidance from experienced editors to collaborate with. I’ve disclosed my COI on the article talk page, but have yet to receive any responses there. When you have a quick moment, would you mind taking a look at the draft I have on my sandbox?

Hi Frecklefoot! I'm not sure I adequately thanked you for your help before, so again, thank you! I had one question regarding your comment about the Leadership style section being too POV. The first sentence that you pointed out did read too much like that, but it was in fact a quote, so I made a note of it. Regarding the rest of the section, does it go into too much extraneous detail? I was trying to convey as much as I could about him (with references) but I can see how that might be a bit much. If you have a moment would you mind clarifying that for me? I'd really like this article to be as neutral as possible.
P.S. Would you happen to know of any other editors who might be interested in reviewing my draft? I've reached out to nearly a dozen now, and you're the only one who's offered a reply. Cheers! --FacultiesIntact (talk) 02:42, 4 December 2014 (UTC)
I can't look at it now, but will try tomorrow. No guarantees, though; my time is limited these day. — Frεcklεfσσt | Talk 03:00, 4 December 2014 (UTC)
No rush, I'm just grateful that someone out here can hear me! --FacultiesIntact (talk) 03:38, 4 December 2014 (UTC)
I'm sure you're still busy, but if and when you do have the time to look things over, would you mind also helping me navigate my encounter with Philafrenzy on Talk:David M. Cote? I don't think either of us is necessarily wrong, but I'd appreciate the help from a more experienced editor. Thanks again! --FacultiesIntact (talk) 20:48, 2 January 2015 (UTC)
I have advised FacultiesIntact of the correct process on the article talk page. Philafrenzy (talk) 21:12, 2 January 2015 (UTC)

Merry Christmas![edit]

I'm wishing you a Merry Christmas, because that is what I celebrate. If you don't like Christmas or just don't celebrate it in any of its forms, then please accept a generic "Happy Holidays". If you celebrate no holidays at this time of year, then hopefully you will be satisfied with an even more generic "Season's Greetings".  :)

Thanks! Back at ya! — Frεcklεfσσt | Talk 01:58, 24 December 2014 (UTC)

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
