Happy template editing! — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 14:40, 14 December 2015 (UTC)

  • Just wondering ...
    1. Could you archive your talk page?
    2. Have you considered adminship? — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 12:32, 15 December 2015 (UTC)
  1. @MSGJ:. Done
  2. I'll look into it. I know nothing about requirements. Thanks. -- GreenC 14:21, 16 December 2015 (UTC)
    Wikipedia:Guide to requests for adminship is perhaps a good place to start. Regards — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 22:43, 16 December 2015 (UTC)

Possible AWB Bug[edit]

Hey just a notice that you somehow duplicated the contents of Champ Clark twice. In the process of reverting to the last good version, I removed <ref name="Allan, Chantal page 17">, but I don't think that caused any harm and it seemed to also fix a ref error. Opencooper (talk) 05:20, 17 December 2015 (UTC)

Hi thanks for the notice. Never seen that before. I don't know if the problem is with my script or AWB itself. Since I don't know what caused it, what I'll do is add a sanity check if the edit size is > 50% of the original article it halts with a warning. I might also retry AWB on Champ Clark and see if it can replicate the problem. -- GreenC 14:19, 17 December 2015 (UTC)

Administrators' noticeboard: red herring[edit]

Information icon There is a response discussion at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents regarding an issue you created. Clepsydrae (talk) 19:27, 27 December 2015 (UTC)

As for your comment, "See WP:3RR before you revert again at red herring. You may be blocked from editing Wikipedia," I only reverted the article twice. I edited it multiple times this morning, possibly immediately after a revert, which undoubtedly appeared to you as a "revert." I have no intention, desire, or time to sustain a revert war. I had hoped that you would follow the references, have an "ah-ha..." moment and leave a good, scholarly edit be. Clepsydrae (talk) 19:27, 27 December 2015 (UTC)

2015 Thalys train attack[edit]

Hi, through no fault of your own, a recent revert I made at 2015 Thalys train attack has undone a change of yours made on 14 November. This is due to an improper implementation of an agreed-upon Rfc by Tough sailor ouch on 12 November which I subsequently reverted, leaving your edit nowhere to go for the time being. Once the Rfc change is properly implemented (by him or another editor) your edit can be reapplied. I will be happy to apply that edit for you, upon request. Please wait for the re-implementation of the Rfc first.

For details, please see Talk:2015_Thalys_train_attack#Implementation_of_Rfc. If there's anything you can think of to explain it to him better than I was able to, I'd sure appreciate it, cuz I'm not sure I'm getting the point across clearly enough.

Happy New Year 2016!
Did you know ... that back in 1885, Wikipedia editors wrote Good Articles with axes, hammers and chisels?

Thank you for your contributions to this encyclopedia using 21st century technology. I hope you don't get any unneccessary blisters.

Public domain movies[edit]


Thank you for removing The Klansman on the list of films in the public domain in the United States. I have added another film on the list that I believe to be in the public domain by the name of Born to Win, a 1971 movie released thru United Artists that features Robert De Niro in an early appearance. If the source I used isn't reliable, then by all means please remove it from the list. Thank you. Hitcher vs. Candyman (talk) 22:11, 17 January 2016 (UTC)


Sorry about the edit conflict on Emmanuel Lemelson. Coincidentally I was in the middle of a more drastic rewrite of that para., which I've added. Hope you think it's better overall - less promotional. If you want to make other changes to the article, let me know, and I'll work on Lemelson Capital Management for a while instead.  —SMALLJIM  14:33, 23 January 2016 (UTC)

No problem, your edit is a big improvement. I probably won't edit more for the moment. -- GreenC 14:49, 23 January 2016 (UTC)
OK. Thanks for your other edit there.  —SMALLJIM  15:12, 23 January 2016 (UTC)


Dickens worked on David Copperfield for two years between 1848 and 1850. Seven novels proceed it, and seven novels would come after it, Copperfield being the mid-point novel.

Tolstoy regarded Dickens as the best of all English novelists, and considered Copperfield to be his finest work, ranking the "Tempest" chapter (chapter 55,LV - the story of Ham and the storm and the shipwreck) the standard by which the worlds great fiction should be judged. Henry James remembered hiding under a small table as a boy to hear installments read by his mother. Dostoevsky read it enthralled in a Siberian prison camp. Franz Kafka called his last book Amerika a "sheer imitation". James Joyce paid it relevance through parody in Ulysses. Virginia Woolf, who normally had little regard for Dickens, confessed the durability of this one novel, belonging to "the memories and myths of life".

The story is told almost entirely from the position of the first person narrative, through the voice of David Copperfield himself, and was the first Dickens novel to do so. It is considered a Bildungsroman and would be influential in the genre such as Dickens own Great Expectations (1861), Thomas Hardy's Jude the Obscure, Samuel Butler's The Way of All Flesh, H. G. Wells's Tono-Bungay, D. H. Lawrence's Sons and Lovers, James Joyce's Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man.

As a bildungsroman, it has one major theme throughout, the disciplining of the hero's emotional and moral life. We learn to go against "the first mistaken impulse of [the]] undisciplined heart", a theme which is repeated throughout all the relationships and characters in the book.
