Billy-o gets back on the saddle for further wiki-adventures.. "Let's roll!"
This user jumped the shark long ago

Good God! You're back. What a treat. Wishing all is well with you, dear friend. As always, — | Gareth Griffith-Jones |The WelshBuzzard| — 18:30, 23 October 2015 (UTC)

A great personal disappointment, that. But it does indeed seem you are back! So.... xylophones at the ready, folks, by George!! Martinevans123 (talk) 18:58, 23 October 2015 (UTC)

(edit conflict)Quick off the mark Martin, but you forgot to sign. — | Gareth Griffith-Jones |The WelshBuzzard| — 19:02, 23 October 2015 (UTC)

With Billy back, I think we all need a sign sign. Martinevans123 (talk) 19:03, 23 October 2015 (UTC)
Aw, don't bring that old religion in 'ere, now! — | Gareth Griffith-Jones |The WelshBuzzard| —
Hahaha. Cheers Gareth, so great to hear from you, I do hope you're well as well. Sadly, I've been drawn in by the latest drama and thought I'd better do a spot of tidying / random editing while I was here. And heya Martin, you old plinky plonker! Hillbillyholiday talk 19:18, 23 October 2015 (UTC)
I'm feeling fine, thanks. Cheese of truth, indeed! — | Gareth Griffith-Jones |The WelshBuzzard| — 19:30, 23 October 2015 (UTC)
Join the hillifantastic choir (and praise the courageous woman who unblocked)! Had to think of my kafkaesque restrictions a lot lately and will not forget your tree of consolation. More dangerous thought on arbitration on my talk, but festive music also in the air. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 19:33, 23 October 2015 (UTC)
Hi Gerda, glad to see you're still here, and hard at work as ever. Yes, quite a stand Yngvadottir's taking there, and she wouldn't be the first mop-holder to take a bullet for Eric; but didn't he say he was never coming back? Anyway, doubt I'll be Bach for good, but I'll certainly be sticking around to see what happens next. Hillbillyholiday talk 20:00, 23 October 2015 (UTC)
Stick around for joy, support Sibelius ;) --Gerda Arendt (talk) 20:15, 23 October 2015 (UTC)
Edit summary ... what can I say? ... you are the Master. — | Gareth Griffith-Jones |The WelshBuzzard| — 20:03, 23 October 2015 (UTC)
aw shucks, well I learnt from the the best... Hillbillyholiday talk
Boombastic? I thought they called you Shagger Billy, not Shaggy Holliday?? Martinevans123 (talk) 20:10, 23 October 2015 (UTC) He was only never coming back after a month. (.. or was it a fourteenth month?) But a mere 23 hours... he actually could have stopped breathing, as User:Davey2010 seemed to be recommending?
Shagger billy? How very solidare you! Hillbillyholiday talk (mmhmm, this'll be the fifteenth time!)
Ah-ha! So... fed up with cyber-hacking and demanding a ransom, you turn up here to peddle your infamous brand of self-help baloney!! Is nowhere sacred?? Martinevans123 (talk) 21:11, 23 October 2015 (UTC)
Piddle peddle! "You"? Surely "your" — | Gareth Griffith-Jones |The WelshBuzzard| — 08:59, 25 October 2015 (UTC)
As you well know, Gareth, the keyboard on this laptop was produced at a time when Bill Gates was still in nappies, and since then has been used as a handy device for collecting toast crumbs and nail parings. That's my excuse and I am sticking to it (literally). I often set out to write proper sentences but seem to end up writing complete nonsense! So please feel free to introduce even a modicum of sense where you see fit. Martinevans123 (talk) 10:04, 25 October 2015 (UTC) I think my keyboard us almost as lethal as a Manchester xylophone!!
Tell me about it. I recently took a straw to my old keyboard and recovered almost a whole henry.. ...Happy daze Hillbillyholiday talk

South Summit (Everest)[edit]

I agree you on the premise but re-proding the article isn't going to go anywhere. I listed it at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/South Summit (Everest). -- Ricky81682 (talk) 05:31, 27 October 2015 (UTC)

Hi, Ricky. I was only reverting whoever that was going on a 'vandalism' spree, I didn't really have an opinion regarding the article. But yeah, I guess it probably should be debated first. Cheers. Hillbillyholiday talk 05:51, 27 October 2015 (UTC)

United Airlines Flight 826[edit]

Hi, the above article was prodded and deprodded back in August 2015 - see this diff. Prod can only be used once, so if you think it does not meet the guidelines, I think your only option is to take it to WP:AFD. Regards, AtHomeIn神戸 (talk) 10:58, 27 October 2015 (UTC)

Heya, AtHomeIn神戸. I was only reverting an IP who was mass de-prodding articles. See AN/I report here. Hillbillyholiday talk 11:15, 27 October 2015 (UTC)
Well how about that, he managed to accidentally do one thing right amongst the vandalism. What's the saying about stopped clocks being correct twice a day? AtHomeIn神戸 (talk) 11:30, 27 October 2015 (UTC)
Even a dead pig occasionally swallows an acorn..? Allegedly. Hillbillyholiday talk 11:53, 27 October 2015 (UTC)

Use of Logo X for a wikilove template[edit]

As a celebratory thing, I'd like to send some random people this message:

Wikipedia logo gold image.jpg                                                   We've reached five million!!                                                  

What do you think? It would be a good use for this awesome logo. Eman235/talk 00:22, 30 October 2015 (UTC)

Thanks, Eman. Go for it -- spread the love around! --Hillbillyholiday talk 00:41, 30 October 2015 (UTC)
Cool. I'll just wait some 2000 half-minutes]. Eman235/talk 00:47, 30 October 2015 (UTC)

Poltergeist Bot In Da House[edit]

"I remember the days when the youth showed some respect to their bots"

Beware Billy. Looks like some dubious miscreant has broken into the bot vault. The old bill might well be round later. Martinevans123 (talk) 14:06, 6 November 2015 (UTC)

Don't worry, I believe it's been blocked. You'd better watch out, Scot Bot will be after you next. --Hillbillyholiday talk 14:17, 6 November 2015 (UTC)

Well, maybe. But the encyclopedia would not be as good. 7&6=thirteen () 22:33, 6 November 2015 (UTC)
Hello, Stan. Hope life's treating you well. Rather rubbing it in with that logo there, aren't you? You know damn well they should have gone with mine. It's quite a challenge to draw sarcastically.[1] --Hillbillyholiday talk 22:43, 6 November 2015 (UTC)
Giant Lagoose, anyone? .... you gotta be careful in Nigeria. Martinevans123 (talk) 23:40, 6 November 2015 (UTC)
Lagoose? Why did I ever return? This place is crazy --Goose Forsyth
I apologize. I was unaware of your artwork. No offense intended. {:>{)> Just wanted to welcome you back, as you were missed. 7&6=thirteen () 11:41, 7 November 2015 (UTC)
Thanks, was only kidding around, no offense taken! I was going for a cross between the infamous London 2012 logo and this, with a soupçon of this for good measure. Anyway it's good to be back amongst such refined and tasteful company, Ōkole maluna! --Hillbillyholiday talk 11:58, 7 November 2015 (UTC)
Love your art! No ambiguity there. 7&6=thirteen () 12:02, 7 November 2015 (UTC)

Hex Enduction Hour[edit]

Long time no talk. Thanks for the clean up and edits. I'm noticing a lot of crossover in articles and interests, and want to thank you for your work. Hi too Martin me auld mucker ;) Ceoil (talk) 11:26, 7 November 2015 (UTC)

Howdy, Ceoil. Cheers, it was only a bit of spring-cleaning though. Your articles always make for entertaining reading. Just perusing Las Meninas earlier - some stunning work there. Funnily enough, recently the painting spawned a new phrase over at Fuckwit ForumTM Good to hear from you fella and hope you're well. --Hillbillyholiday talk 11:43, 7 November 2015 (UTC) "The dwarves are out of shot!"
"This is a local page for local people. We'll have no out-of-shot dwarves here!" Martinevans123 (talk) 12:08, 7 November 2015 (UTC)
Lol! Was watching his channel as your message arrived! [2] --Hillbillyholiday talk 12:17, 7 November 2015 (UTC)
It's not dwarves you've got to worry about, of course, it's those giant lizards, like Ted Heath. Martinevans123 (talk) 12:26, 7 November 2015 (UTC)
Ha, you are David Icke and I claim my five pounds! Seriously though, as a failed (5' 7") goalkeeper myself, I have a lot of sympathy for the chap.. --Hillbillyholiday talk 13:08, 7 November 2015 (UTC)
But to be serious for a moment folks, and noticing the Fuckwit Forum; a lot of the Viz articles on historically significant characters such as Cockney Wanker ("whoes faathaa was what won the war for us") & Big Ern (he only just got out, and now this shit?) are being deleted by...Americans. Will we go to war lads, will we all die together...for Terry, Wanker and Ern? Of course I'm Irish and the nuke will probably miss Cork, but give it yer best all the same. Bravo! Ceoil (talk) 13:29, 7 November 2015 (UTC)
Ah, but it's just not as funny as it used to be.. Now, pleaose can we have a picture of that bloke kissing a bird's arse?
You'll be safe so long as you join the CND. Hillbilly
CND isn't a phrase you hear very often these days. Did you see that study on the most new words adapted since 2000? All very self centered,was my take, though I'm no humanitarian nor do I play one on TV. Also, Viz has was shit before Blur turned good. That's one hella a long time to be shit. Ceoil (talk)
They still have their moments [3] Hillbillyholiday talk
Jesus Christ Hillbilly. I'm not easily offended but off for my smelling salts now. Good day to you sir. Ceoil (talk) 16:15, 7 November 2015 (UTC)

Elizabeth Gray[edit]

Hi HBH, I drafted a version of the fossil hunter Elizabeth Gray and I went to search for new sources this morning and found your draft. Would you like to collaborate? First bit would be to add some of the useful extra sources that you have in your draft I suggest. I would hope to nominate it for DYK in the next few days. Hope you think this interesting ... Victuallers (talk) 08:36, 19 November 2015 (UTC)

Hi Roger, I'd entirely forgotten about my draft. Glad to see that someone else got round to creating the article. Feel free to take what you need from my version, I'll take a closer look tomorrow and see what I can add. Perhaps you can delete the article from my userspace when we're done? --Hillbillyholiday talk 18:10, 20 November 2015 (UTC)

Beautiful. Thank you, Gerda. Hope you are well. --Hillbillyholiday talk 18:36, 22 November 2015 (UTC)
I am not well, but archived the prayers. I created that article two years ago, and then had massive problems when I wanted it for DYK on Christmas, DYK? You see that the image is not in the article, right? Is no more. And the title is no more what Britten wrote and the publisher, but what our house style commands. See talk. Everytime I about the editorial choices the principal editor may make I think of that boy ;) --Gerda Arendt (talk) 18:43, 22 November 2015 (UTC)
