RE: Disambiguation[edit]

It was a disambiguation page with only one blue link and was more suitable as a redirect. --Signed and Sealed, JJJJust (T C) 18:09, 5 October 2006 (UTC)

Swing low, sweet chariot[edit]

Please do not remove whole sections of a page without discussing it on the talk page. This constitutes vandalism. I understand that many religious people might not like the gestures that accompany the rugby version of swing low but they are real and referenced. You don't have the right to delete things just because you do not like them.GordyB 10:43, 3 November 2006 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for December 13[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Charlie Flynn, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Sunday Mail. 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.

Draft:Alan Sinclair concern[edit]

Hi there, I'm HasteurBot. I just wanted to let you know that Draft:Alan Sinclair, a page you created, has not been edited in 6 months. The Articles for Creation space is not an indefinite storage location for content that is not appropriate for articlespace.

If your submission is not edited soon, it could be nominated for deletion. If you would like to attempt to save it, you will need to improve it.

You may request Userfication of the content if it meets requirements.

Your draft article, Draft:Alan Sinclair[edit]

Hello, Graemec2. It has been over six months since you last edited your WP:AFC draft article submission, entitled "Alan Sinclair".

The page will shortly be deleted. If you plan on editing the page to address the issues raised when it was declined and resubmit it, simply edit the submission and remove the {{db-afc}} or {{db-g13}} code. Please note that Articles for Creation is not for indefinite hosting of material deemed unsuitable for the encyclopedia mainspace.

If your submission has already been deleted by the time you get there, and you want to retrieve it, you can request its undeletion by one of two methods (don't do both): 1) follow the instructions at WP:REFUND/G13, or 2) copy this code: {{subst:Refund/G13|Draft:Alan Sinclair}}, paste it in the edit box at this link, and click "Save page". An administrator will in most cases undelete the submission.

Thanks for your submission to Wikipedia, and happy editing. Calliopejen1 (talk) 15:06, 29 May 2015 (UTC)

Daily Mail[edit]

Hi Graemec2. Just a quick note to let you know that per community consensus, we don't cite Daily Mail articles because they're considered not to meet the guideline on reliable sources. (I can dig up a link to the discussion if you really want it.) If you see any references involving that newspaper and web site, feel free to remove them (along with the associated content, if it seems questionable, especially on biographical articles about living people). Thanks! RivertorchFIREWATER 17:01, 12 September 2017 (UTC)

Elizabeth Dawn[edit]

Hi Graemec2. I I notice that you made this edit and I was wondering what your exact rationale was? The article is currently nominated at WP:ITNRD with no objections but some editors frequently oppose unless all content, including Filmography etc, is supported by reliable sources. Thanks. Martinevans123 (talk) 12:31, 27 September 2017 (UTC)

Elizabeth Dawn Happy to explain why I removed the three references from the filmography section. Refs 16,17 Are both obituary and only makes refernce to her Coranation Street work. https://www.usatoday.com/story/life/people/2017/09/26/liz-dawn-former-coronation-street-actress-dies-at-age-77/106007092/ http://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/2017/09/26/coronation-street-star-liz-dawn-dead-at-77.html

Ref 18 Is from Tvguide.com and again only mentions her TV work on Coronation Street http://www.tvguide.com/celebrities/liz-dawn/credits/295750/

Given that every other reference in the rest of the article makes reference to the fact that she was an actress on Coronation Street to include three additional references here that does not add any new information is pointless. Graemec2 (talk) 22:35, 27 September 2017 (UTC)

Ah, yes. Makes perfect sense, thanks. I see that "Our Vera" has just managed to slip onto the front page, despite the lack of sources for the Filmography. Sometimes I think those Main page stalwarts would rather "die of thirst" than permit the convenience of a Main page link to a partially unsourced article.

WikiProject Women in Red/The World Contest[edit]

Hi. This month The Women in Red World Contest is being held to try to produce new articles for as many countries worldwide and occupations as possible. There is over £3000 in prizes to win, including Amazon vouchers and paid subscriptions. Wikimedia UK is putting up £250 specifically for editors who produce the most quality new women bios for British women, with special consideration given to missing notable biographies from the Oxford Dictionary of Biography and Welsh Dictionary of Biography. If you're not interested in prize money yourself but are willing to participate independently this is also fine, but please add any articles created to the bottom of the main contest page even if not competing. Your participation in the contest and contributing articles on British women from your area or wherever would we much appreciated. Thanks.

Inside No. 9[edit]

Hi Graeme; I'm not opposed to you adding the guest stars to the infoboxes (I think I might prefer them centralised or bulleted, but that's not a big deal), but could you perhaps ensure that you're adding all the guest stars to each infobox? I'm not sure there's any way we can be selective without being arbitrary. You missed some in at least The Devil of Christmas. Josh Milburn (talk) 18:31, 9 January 2018 (UTC)

Michael Vigor[edit]

Hi there. Just regarding your recent removal of content at Michael Vigor – that sentence wasn't an out-of-place, unsourced claim. Both references listed there, from the Bristol Flyers [1] [2], state the reason he was able to play for Scotland was because of his mother's Scottish heritage. I added that info based on what the sources were telling me. You've removed it claiming something to the contrary. Is there a guideline or source you can link for me that states the reason is because of birthplace rather than heritage? Was Flyers writer Joel Osborne inaccurate?
