A belated welcome![edit]

Sorry for the belated welcome, but the cookies are still warm! Face-smile.svg

Here's wishing you a belated welcome to Wikipedia, Heysford. I see that you've already been around a while and wanted to thank you for your contributions. Though you seem to have been successful in finding your way around, you may benefit from following some of the links below, which help editors get the most out of Wikipedia:

Also, when you post on talk pages you should sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); that should automatically produce your username and the date after your post.

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! If you have any questions, feel free to leave me a message on my talk page, consult Wikipedia:Questions, or place {{helpme}} on your talk page and ask your question there.

Again, welcome! œ 06:38, 4 October 2011 (UTC)

Citing to a paper (your inquiry)[edit]

Try this: Good article, and Jimmy Wales is an unconventional maven.[1]

Your edits to the Jimmy Wales article[edit]

I am not sure what you are trying to do. In any event, if you use the reference I gave you above, it should follow the first place where you want a citation. If you cite to it again, the protocol is to reuse the ref name and follow it with a / within the two <>. This would make it look like this: [1] You used something about "Indepdent11" or somethign like that, and it was referring back a citation that does not exist. So you get a reference error, which I am sure was unintentional. By doing this, we get the repeated use of the reference, as indicated below. Hope that helps. 7&6=thirteen () 01:43, 25 October 2011 (UTC)

Herbert Lom and hačeks on Kuchačevič[edit]

Hi.

Re this edit: This is not the way things are done around here. If you have evidence, produce it as a citation in the article or a discussion point on the talk page. We don't deal with secret information that's passed around behind the scenes. As for your bona fides, we always assume good faith, it's one of our rules. But just because you are genuine in your belief about something does not mean you are correct in your belief.

For now, I will be guided by the Czech article, and it has hačeks on both c's. -- Jack of Oz [Talk] 06:03, 21 October 2012 (UTC)

"Irrelevant" comment[edit]

You should have edited the Rolling Stones topic better than to simply call my comment "irrelevant", I'd say the fact Rolling Stones were headlining Glastonbury were headlining at that moment was pretty irrelevant too, and you should have worded that better. Corabal (talk) 20:23, 30 June 2013 (UTC)

The first comment was there when I looked at the page and I just amended. You can change the entry any way you like, of course.

November 2013[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Doniago. I noticed that you made a change to an article, Hallelujah (Leonard Cohen song), but you didn't provide a reliable source. It's been removed for now, but if you'd like to include a citation and re-add it, please do so! If you need guidance on referencing, please see the referencing for beginners tutorial, or if you think I made a mistake, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. -- DonIago (talk) 13:27, 13 November 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for August 29[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Royal Corps of Signals, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Second Gulf War. 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.

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 09:04, 29 August 2014 (UTC)

I picked someone who has an international reputation but you go ahead and police what you want to.


It's simply as the names listed are more globally known. Listing every attendee defeats the purpose of linking the category. Rusted AutoParts 17:14, 25 July 2015 (UTC)

Your opinion. There are many more Alumni of BOVTS that are internationally known, and listed, in Wikipedia that you can link.
So? Linking every name defeats the purpose of linking the Category at the top. It's best to provide the names that stand out best as examples. Rusted AutoParts 12:00, 26 July 2015 (UTC)
