Hehe thanks. I figured it would stop the amount of people complaining about my actions (I have become quite involved with the new article patrolling pages). I am not sure about expanding the template out to other users, I mean anyone would be more than welcome to use it but I would not know where to suggest it (any thoughts?). Perhaps it would have to be modified and improved if it is to become a wider used table though. Cheers!Calaka (talk) 11:51, 19 August 2009 (UTC)

PS. I actually decided against adding a skiptocontents template since there is a button at the very top of my page where users can click on to make a new comment. Calaka (talk) 11:52, 19 August 2009 (UTC)
Village pump (miscellaneous) could perhaps be the right place to ask. Iceblock (talk) 12:15, 19 August 2009 (UTC)

Interlanguage links[edit]


You are receiving this as you have recently added an interwiki link to a page!

Wikidata has been deployed to the English Wikipedia. Wikidata manages interwiki links on a separate project on pages such as this. This means that on Wikipedia articles there is now a language bar on the left hand side of your screen where you can edit and add links rather than adding them into the articles themselves.

If you have any questions regarding Wikidata please use the talk page Wikipedia talk:Wikidata.

Speedy deletion nomination of Apparent longitude[edit]

Hello Iceblock,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged Apparent longitude for deletion, because it's too short to identify the subject of the article.

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted and want more time to work on it, you can contest this deletion, but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. Wikiuser13 (talk | contribs) 17:46, 29 January 2014 (UTC)

Articles needing attention[edit]


I am working within the Laos WikiProject for a very limited subject: the Laotian Civil War and its operations/battles, etc. Please, do not expect me to work on random articles on Laos outside that niche.

WikiProject Research Invitation[edit]

Hello Iceblock,

We’d like to invite you to participate in a study that aims to explore how WikiProject members coordinate activities of distributed group members to complete project goals. We are specifically seeking to talk to people who have been active in at least one WikiProject in their time in Wikipedia. Compensation will be provided to each participant in the form of a $10 Amazon gift card.

The purpose of this study is to better understanding the coordination practices of Wikipedians active within WikiProjects, and to explore the potential for tool-mediated coordination to improve those practices. Interviews will be semi-structured, and should last between 45-60 minutes. If you decide to participate, we will schedule an appointment for the online chat session. During the appointment you will be asked some basic questions about your experience interacting in WikiProjects, how that process has worked for you in the past and what ideas you might have to improve the future.

You must be over 18 years old, speak English, and you must currently be or have been at one time an active member of a WikiProject. The interview can be conducted over an audio chatting channel such as Skype or Google Hangouts, or via an instant messaging client. If you have questions about the research or are interested in participating, please contact Michael Gilbert at (206) 354-3741 or by email at

We cannot guarantee the confidentiality of information sent by email.

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.
