My talk page info:

  • Anything is welcome here, thanks, complaints, requests, personal attacks. Well, those aren't really welcome, but they won't be removed. They just make you look bad. Only reverts I will do are for vandalizing other peoples' comments.
  • Where will I reply: I will generally reply on your talk page for anything that requires further conversation or which it is important that you actually see. If it is something minor, like "thank you!" it'll just be here. After the end of a conversation, (or in the middle, if I get around to it), I will copy any parts appearing only on your talk page to mine, for ease of finding later.

Speedy delete of 7 Lives[edit]

I put the speedy delete tag for lack of context because the artist for whom the article was linked had had his own article/page deleted. He's done a new one now (which also looks like it will be deleted) but without the artist his material seems to be a bit lacking contextually :) WebHamster 17:48, 11 August 2007 (UTC)

West Ham United 2007-08[edit]

Excellent edit! Re the squad numbers. I know from attending games that Collison and Spence have squad numbers but every time I put them in the West Ham United wiki entry they get taken out as they are not on the Official Website. Has this info come from some other verifiable source? --Egghead06 08:04, 16 August 2007 (UTC)

List of Japanese N64 games[edit]

I noticed your one of the people that wished there to be a list of Japanese games for the Nintendo 64 which I made a few months ago, but just like when they where added to the orginal List of Nintendo 64 games they are trying to delete the new page List of Japanese Nintendo 64 games here's a link Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of Japanese Nintendo 64 games to the discussion, how about giving your view.

List of Nintendo 64[edit]

Hi again sorry I keep writing you, this time I wished to ask if you'd be a sort of mediator for us on the List of Nintendo 64 games I started the Japanese list article because the other people who where maintaining it kept deleting the Japanese titles without any reference to the alternate names, one of them decided to try delete the page I made with this information and thankfully it ended in a decision on the part of the Wikipedia administrators for there to be a merge. Hopefully it'll go smooth, I'm also going to invite the other two main contributors to the page, but it seems they didn't bother to comment about their action on deleting Japanese titles, until I began to make the other page, and they probably never read your message on the talk page about deleting them. I'm also going to ask the other two Administrators that helped add the merge notice, and discussion ended notice, if they will help be mediators, and possibly let us post a link to them on the talk page so if anyone has Wikipedia Administration questions about the page they can find one easier. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Floppydog66 (talkcontribs) 14:37, 17 October 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for writing. This is first I've seen your messages, as I haven't been active on the site recently. I tried looking around to try to catch up to what's going on, but I don't really have the time to work on it presently. Hopefully others can keep things the way they should be - if there was a consensus to merge, (and it looks pretty unanimous), then the Japanese games should remain on the page unless there is a new discussion to the contrary. Any other deletions should be considered vandalism and reverted by anyone around. -Goldom ‽‽‽ 20:39, 17 October 2007 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:Trouble Chocolate DVD 1.jpg)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Trouble Chocolate DVD 1.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 05:05, 25 July 2008 (UTC)

Unit Monster[edit]


Please reinstate this page. You have no right to delete it after 5 minutes. I'm in the process of adding references to it. Don't be so quick to delete something of which you obviously know nothing about.

Goldom: You are a Wikipedia Nazi. Congratulations for knowing everything. You must be truly proud of yourself. Maybe you should spend less time browsing every single new article on Wikipedia, and start getting out of your dad's basement more often. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Bosox0578 (talkcontribs) 18:51, 26 August 2008 (UTC)

Pre-mature deletion[edit]

You just deleted a page I had in progress. I believe I had all of 1 sentence on the page. I followed the guidelines for new entries by linking to it only on my user page until it was complete but you deleted it anyways... I don't see what you could have found objectionable about it, considering it didn't say anything and it placed on a user page like I was told it should be. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Mayop100 (talkcontribs) 22:58, 26 August 2008 (UTC)

In reply to your question - the article was linked to from your user page, but itself was in the article space. Secondly, regardless of its size, it appeared to be a page about a non-notable company. If this is not the case, feel free to recreate the page, once it is large enough to explain its value. If you want to work on a page that isn't ready to be an article, be sure it is in your actual user space. -Goldom ‽‽‽ 02:05, 27 August 2008 (UTC)

y did u block me?[edit]

above EDIT: dude wtf answer me plz Sub!  13:44, 28 August 2008 (UTC)

  • Don't think I did. Don't remember the name nor can I find it in my block log. -Goldom ‽‽‽ 01:12, 12 October 2008 (UTC)

Alternate titles, and columns in Lists of articles[edit]

Hi Goldom, you were one of the first people to come along and try to keep people from deleting Japanese titles from the 'List of Nintendo 64 games', and despite the creation and merg of the List of Japanese Nintendo 64 games, there are people who still feel that there shouldn't be Japanese names on a English List of page. I was hoping you might come and give your opnion at the Talk:List of Nintendo 64 games#Removal of Alternate Titles and Number of Players some have suggested that they take up too much space and that other columns could seem to be "useful only to fans", and other things that have been mentioned that, and other 'List of' talk pages. I know you might be watching the page and seen how I mention this on the Famicom list page, but I hope you'll come and give you opinion, and hopefully keep these type of concerns from arising again and again at each "List of" pages.

MSU Interview[edit]

Dear Goldom,

My name is Jonathan Obar user:Jaobar, I'm a professor in the College of Communication Arts and Sciences at Michigan State University and a Teaching Fellow with the Wikimedia Foundation's Education Program. This semester I've been running a little experiment at MSU, a class where we teach students about becoming Wikipedia administrators. Not a lot is known about your community, and our students (who are fascinated by wiki-culture by the way!) want to learn how you do what you do, and why you do it. A while back I proposed this idea (the class) to the communityHERE, where it was met mainly with positive feedback. Anyhow, I'd like my students to speak with a few administrators to get a sense of admin experiences, training, motivations, likes, dislikes, etc. We were wondering if you'd be interested in speaking with one of our students.

So a few things about the interviews:

  • Interviews will last between 15 and 30 minutes.
  • Interviews can be conducted over skype (preferred), IRC or email. (You choose the form of communication based upon your comfort level, time, etc.)
  • All interviews will be completely anonymous, meaning that you (real name and/or pseudonym) will never be identified in any of our materials, unless you give the interviewer permission to do so.
  • All interviews will be completely voluntary. You are under no obligation to say yes to an interview, and can say no and stop or leave the interview at any time.
  • The entire interview process is being overseen by MSU's institutional review board (ethics review). This means that all questions have been approved by the university and all students have been trained how to conduct interviews ethically and properly.

Bottom line is that we really need your help, and would really appreciate the opportunity to speak with you. If interested, please send me an email at (to maintain anonymity) and I will add your name to my offline contact list. If you feel comfortable doing so, you can post your nameHERE instead.

If you have questions or concerns at any time, feel free to email me at I will be more than happy to speak with you.

Thanks in advance for your help. We have a lot to learn from you.

Notification of automated file description generation[edit]

Your upload of File:Air bag warning sign.jpg or contribution to its description is noted, and thanks (even if belatedly) for your contribution. In order to help make better use of the media, an attempt has been made by an automated process to identify and add certain information to the media's description page.

This notification is placed on your talk page because a bot has identified you either as the uploader of the file, or as a contributor to its metadata. It would be appreciated if you could carefully review the information the bot added. To opt out of these notifications, please follow the instructions here. Thanks! Message delivered by Theo's Little Bot (opt-out) 11:31, 11 December 2013 (UTC)

Request for comment[edit]

Hello there, a proposal regarding pre-adminship review has been raised at Village pump by Anna Frodesiak. Your comments here is very much appreciated. Many thanks. Jim Carter through MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 06:47, 28 May 2014 (UTC)

Notification of pending suspension of administrative permissions due to inactivity[edit]

Information icon Following a community discussion in June 2011, consensus was reached to provisionally suspend the administrative permissions of users who have been inactive for one year (i.e. administrators who have not made any edits or logged actions in over one year). As a result of this discussion, your administrative permissions will be removed pending your return if you do not return to activity within the next month. If you wish to have these permissions reinstated should this occur, please post to the Wikipedia:Bureaucrats' noticeboard and the userright will be restored per the re-sysopping process (i.e. as long as the attending bureaucrats are reasonably satisfied that your account has not been compromised, that your inactivity did not have the effect of evading scrutiny of any actions which might have led to sanctions, and that you have not been inactive for a three year period of time). If you remain inactive for a three year period of time, including the present year you have been inactive, you will need to request reinstatement at WP:RFA. This removal of access is procedural only, and not intended to reflect negatively upon you in any way. We wish you the best in future endeavors, and thank you for your past administrative efforts.

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

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.
