AfD[edit]

Once an article has been tagged AfD, it should not be removed until a vote has been concluded. I would advise you to politely inform the user that it is policy for a vote to take place once a user has tagged the page, and request that the user does not remove the tag again. I would then replace the tag and follow the guidelines for AfD. You can also inform the user that he/she can put an argument forward in support of the article on the voting page and vote (once only). I hope that clarifies things. Best wishes - Solar 08:18, 28 April 2006 (UTC)

Vorkosigan Saga Inconsistencies[edit]

You might want to cast your vote on the new deletion discussion page. xompanthy 22:55, 29 April 2006 (UTC)

Mediation case[edit]

Hi there, I am Cowman109Talk and I have responded to your mediation request at Wikipedia:Mediation Cabal/Cases/2006-05-14 Blue Panther. Your input is requested, thanks. Cowman109Talk 18:27, 14 May 2006 (UTC)

db-author[edit]

Glad to see your new pages patrolling re Blue Panther.

But a small point re your comment to Phr33kuk. Removing a page by blanking it is not to be recommended. Depending on the history, blanking a page may merely result in its being restored by the vandalbot (or one of the bots that lurk here). {{db-author}} is the only one you should recommend. -- RHaworth 19:38, 15 May 2006 (UTC)

OK, thanks. I was just going by what was on Wikipedia:Criteria_for_speedy_deletion.

Benge[edit]

Thanks. I already deleted it. I'm probably going to start blocking these people soon. Academic Challenger 23:56, 15 May 2006 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Thanks for clearing that up. Keppa 01:01, 16 May 2006 (UTC)

Darren@nocuffs[edit]

Darren@nocuffs‎ has created several articles which, given that he's a criminal defense lawyer, specializing in DUI and drug cases and that all of them end with "If you or a loved one was arrested for DUI, please contact a skilled defense lawyer immediately", reeks of advertising. As far as I can tell it isn't copyvio, though. I saw that you removed one as original research. --Jamoche 19:29, 17 May 2006 (UTC)

Yes, I have also pointed him towards advice and policy with regard to creating good articles on Wikipedia. I notice that a slew of related articles in the same vein and style have issued forth from this user. I don't want to persecute the man by deleting all of them as contravention of policy. Perhaps if other editors and admins also point out their deviations from policy then the author may take notice and edit accordingly?  (aeropagitica)  (talk)  19:33, 17 May 2006 (UTC)

Meanings of "Diaphragm" - follow-up comments[edit]

Hi there. I've copied some comments below from the dab with links page. Hope the expanding of the dab page helped a bit, even though we don't seem to have much on these topics yet. Carcharoth 17:01, 18 May 2006 (UTC)

the following was copied from here by Carcharoth 17:01, 18 May 2006 (UTC)

Diaphragm: 116 links - Down to 5 articles using the term just to mean a divider, which isn't one of the choices. Now what? --Jamoche 03:12, 10 May 2006 (UTC)

That sounds like they are just "general use" of the word, so in each article delink and (if needed) explain that, in this context, diaphragm means a divider - or just rewrite without the word diaphragm, or use a link to wiktionary. In fact, should linking to wiktionary be a standard way to clear up some of the links to dab pages? Carcharoth 14:28, 18 May 2006 (UTC)
Oops. Had a closer look. One was a redirect to diaphragm (optics), but it's not so easy to decide what to do with Shear_wall, William_Robert_Grove, and Bryozoa. Carcharoth 15:59, 18 May 2006 (UTC)
I've now extended the definitions at Diaphragm, so hopefully that clears up a little bit of confusion. It would be interesting to see something on the history of how the word spread to be used in such diverse areas. Carcharoth 16:57, 18 May 2006 (UTC)

Redirect mess[edit]

title inserted by Carcharoth 10:38, 20 May 2006 (UTC)

Newbie User:Bestvnteas somehow ended up with a redirect to Types_of_Wheats_and_Its_Flours in the user and talk pages, resulting in people making edits to Talk:Types_of_Wheats_and_Its_Flours by mistake. I copied the user talk text into the correct place and removed the redirects but there's still a bit of a mess - I don't know if the talk page should be moved or deleted (can it be moved without taking the article with it?)

I deleted the talk page. Sasquatch t|c 00:16, 19 May 2006 (UTC)

thanks[edit]

thx for explaining me- im sorry i did it wrong. if you can, check this out also http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shala_staton best--Greece666 21:56, 20 May 2006 (UTC)

Thank You[edit]

I just created the List of Roman Female Names and hadn't even thought about categories. Thank You. Could you also insert them under my other recent article List of Roman Tribes? Rrpbgeek 20:38, 24 May 2006 (UTC)

Chadd Pierce[edit]

I noticed you proposed the Chadd Pierce article for deletion. FYI, I left him a note on his user page; he's apparently a newcomer. I think he's a bit confused -- he just scrubbed the same stuff off his user page and restored his vanity article. I think he's got the two pages mixed up.--A. B. 05:44, 31 May 2006 (UTC)

Anon AFDing[edit]

Yessir - could you do that for me? That is, initiate the AFD process on the 100 Greatest Guitarists article. By all means quote my rationale. All these Rolling Stone list pages have got to go. They're either stubs for ever or magnets for fanboy indignation. - Maggie --70.48.205.21 01:44, 2 October 2006 (UTC)

  • Thanks. - Maggie --70.48.205.21 14:48, 2 October 2006 (UTC)

WikiProject Disambiguation Talk Request[edit]

This is a form message being sent to all WikiProject Disambiguation participants. I recently left a proposed banner idea on the WikiProject Disambiguation talk page and I would appreciate any input you could provide. Before it can be approved or denied, I would prefer a lot of feedback from multiple participants in the project. So if you have the time please join in the discussion to help improve the WikiProject. Keep up the good work in link repair and thanks for your time. Nehrams2020 21:54, 9 October 2006 (UTC)

Amelia reid aviation[edit]

I am afraid that I disagree with the assessment you made that this is a speedy deletion candidate. I have therefore removed the speedy tag but have inseted a new tag indicating that the article needs to be reworded so that it does not read like an advertisement.

Regards

LittleOldMe 18:35, 1 November 2006 (UTC)

Dwarf Rabbit[edit]

My apologies. I will talk about the move on the article's talk page and use the move feature from now on. --Anthony5429 15:42, 8 November 2006 (UTC)

Major typo[edit]

Thanks for catching my "cateegory". I've been known to make that sort of mistake before, but have generally caught myself before saving it. Sorry about the trouble. Badbilltucker 19:32, 22 January 2007 (UTC)

Doctor Who story chronology[edit]

Why are you trying to delete my page. All it is, is about all the Doctor Who stories that go in order. The other people who are involved in other Doctor Who related articles allowed me to do this so don't think about getting it deleted. Victory93 28/7/2007

Disambiguation link fixing one-day contest[edit]

I have decided to put on a mini-contest within the November 2013 monthly disambiguation contest, on Saturday, November 23 (UTC). I will personally give a $20 Amazon.com gift card to the disambiguator who fixes the most links on that server-day (see the project page for details on scoring points). Since we are not geared up to do an automated count for that day, at 00:00, 23 November 2013 (UTC) (which is 7:00 PM on November 22, EST), I'll take a screenshot of the project page leaderboard. I will presume that anyone who is not already listed on the leaderboard has precisely nine edits. At 01:00, 24 November 2013 (UTC) (8:00 PM on November 23, EST), I'll take a screenshot of the leaderboard at that time (the extra hour is to give the board time to update), and I will determine from that who our winner is. I will credit links fixed by turning a WP:DABCONCEPT page into an article, but you'll have to let me know me that you did so. Here's to a fun contest. Note that according to the Daily Disambig, we currently have under 256,000 disambiguation links to be fixed. If everyone in the disambiguation link fixers category were to fix 500 links, we would have them all done - so aim high! Cheers! bd2412 T 02:32, 18 November 2013 (UTC)
