Thanks for Signing![edit]

Thanks for signing my guestbook! --Hadger 03:46, 7 January 2010 (UTC)

No problem :). Jeffrey Mall (talkcontribs) - 03:47, 7 January 2010 (UTC)
The residents of Piffle Sniffly are upset at your actions. The entire hamlet is gathered around the computer putting up this wikipedia article you know. This is the most interesting event in Piffle Sniffly since Joe Pasquale passed through the Hamlet for a few seconds in this car in 2003. Let us have our momment please. Thanks. --RailNutBloke1992 (talk) 12:19, 18 January 2010 (UTC)

Hi[edit]

hi jeff....i saw that you took my profile off wikipedia.....i have to tell you a couple of things....i didnt do the original profile of me...someone i dont know did it....one day, i typed my name and the profile telling my history came up.....since that day, i did add a few things that happened to me, but i didnt think it was commercial promotion, i just updated what had happened to me in my professional life...i wont do it again....im not a wiki guy, and i dont understand all the rules and procedures....i apologize for that....would you please consider re-enstateing the profile? i wont attempt to mess with it ever again....everything that is on there is true, and i think its pretty darn notable...ive done lot of good work as an artist and producer, and i would like for people to be able to read about these events.....than you for considering it, jeff! best wishes, mark beam ,markbeam@adelphia.net —Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.173.142.145 (talk) 03:19, 16 June 2010 (UTC)

Guess What. iam allowed to post anything on MY TALK PAGE. You cannot block me because there is nothing wrong with posting TRUE facts on my talk page. I will delete them to make you content. Thanks anyway, --SylvieHorse (talk) 17:52, 30 January 2010 (UTC)

P.S. You did not remind me earlyer this year. At least, not to my knolage. Also, my sister and I share an account. She probly did all the Vandilizing. Have a good weekend, --SylvieHorse (talk) 17:52, 30 January 2010 (UTC)

Lauren and Cheese[edit]

Is that really {{prod}}? I added CSD template because I was not able to understand about whom it was about, but maybe there is more appropriate CSD. Maybe you know such? vvvt 16:33, 10 February 2010 (UTC)

Well considering the author's user name is "Cheese Queen" I would have thought the user was the "Lauren" mentioned within the article and as such the appropriate CSD template in this case is debatable. I think it's more of an opinion piece than anything else though. Jeffrey Mall (talkcontribs) - 18:06, 10 February 2010 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Iro Curmi[edit]

Yours is a common problem, but not a deletion reason. See WP:DAB.--Tikiwont (talk) 22:18, 20 February 2010 (UTC)

Thanks, I know what a dab page is but seeing as how the other Iro Curmi hasn't got an article yet it seems a bit pointless to have a dab page in which 1 of the 2 links is red. Jeffrey Mall (talkcontribs) - 23:00, 20 February 2010 (UTC)
It's not only about dab pages. How about a hatnote of the {{redirect}} type? --Tikiwont (talk) 23:05, 20 February 2010 (UTC)
All well and good but there's no primary topic in this case and the "other use" would still be redlinked. Jeffrey Mall (talkcontribs) - 23:07, 20 February 2010 (UTC)
Well the current primary topic is the one article we have, which is why we cannot delete the redirect. I've tried a hat note. Feel free to tweak or remove.--Tikiwont (talk) 23:18, 20 February 2010 (UTC)
The redirect I tagged was just one that had been left behind after what was supposed to be an uncontroversial move regarding disambiguation in the article title (see this discussion) which turned out to be an error on my part which is why I tagged it for deletion in the first place. The hatnote you've added is somewhat redundant however because the only information the page linked to has on Curmi is that he's currently on loan from another football club. Jeffrey Mall (talkcontribs) - 23:26, 20 February 2010 (UTC)
Basically we don't do preemptive disambiguation, so if someone chooses to have a specific title already now, a redirect is the least and just fine till things change. The hatnote is supposed to help anybody who gets bumbed by the redirect there looking for the other guy. Which I understood to be your point of departure. Besides that it doesn't indeed tell anything, but maybe that changes. Having a redlink inside or removing it altogether is fine with me.--Tikiwont (talk) 23:43, 20 February 2010 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Which is fair enough but the hatnote wouldn't have been needed if you'd simply deleted the redirect, either way, as we seem to be going round in circles here I'll leave things as they are now and I think it would be best if we called it a day.

FiveBooks[edit]

Not sure why you had second thoughts on this. The user does seem to be a SPA, the single purpose being to add these links. I'm not sure it is linkspam, the web site isn't really selling anything, and the links could be legit. But it seems unlikely anyone without a COI would add all these links. Probably bears watching. Rees11 (talk) 15:27, 16 March 2010 (UTC)

I've just left a note on the users talk page, I'm hoping I can stop this continuous addition of external links without Administrator intervention. As you said, they aren't really selling anything and I wasn't really sure if it was link spam either as there does seem to be some encyclopedic value to these webpages, but as far as a conflict of interest goes I agree with you, it does seem unlikely that this user wouldn't have a COI. But I'll discuss this with them first and see where it goes. Jeffrey Mall (talkcontribs) - 15:35, 16 March 2010 (UTC)
Dear Jeffrey,
Thank you for your letter.
FiveBooks asks experts to recommend top reading on their areas. Many experts (FiveBooks interviewees) have their pages on Wikipedia and several interviewees recommend to put a link about their interviews on their wikipedia pages. This links are relevant to these peoples. I'm not trying to spam. it is very easy to check these links by clicking them. Also now, when FiveBooks has its page on Wikipedia I could send a link to our WikiPage instead of external links to five-books.com. I'm a new member for wikipedia and would like to do my best to be a good Wikipedian. thank you- Yours sincerely, Anon111 (talk) - 11:28, 17 March 2010 (UTC)

Regarding 18th-Century American Piracy of British Literature[edit]

Hey there Jeffrey, Your Edit of the article 8th-Century American Piracy of British Literature created an additional citation error to the one already there. If instead of introducing new errors, in the future use the "show preview" feature to notice that you are introducing an error. I fixed your mistake. Cheers! Babylonian Armor (talk) 00:51, 26 March 2010 (UTC)

Yes thank you, I'm already an avid user of the good ole "Show preview" button and I'm aware of the fact that I introduced another error but I'd only just noticed the {{Underconstruction}} tag and thought it would be best not to edit that page any further to avoid any edit conflicts. Regards, Jeffrey Mall (talkcontribs) - 01:00, 26 March 2010 (UTC)
Okay, just checking. Hope to see you around! Babylonian Armor (talk) 01:03, 26 March 2010 (UTC)
Sure thing, I have to admit though I'm usually quite good with these cite errors but I'm not entirely sure why the ones on this particular page are showing up however. Anywho I'll leave you to it. Cheers, Jeffrey Mall (talkcontribs) - 01:12, 26 March 2010 (UTC)

images[edit]

Hi Jeffrey, could you please help me: I often use Wikipedia and I think I could contribute to articles by adding photos of people to their wiki-pages: e.g.in Michela Wrong's article there is no photo of Michela. Can I use her photo from other websites, such as [1]? or it is not free? I could also ask Michela to send her photo to me so I could upload it from her permission.. Also [2] has pictures of all interviewees who have wiki articles.. Can I use FiveBook's photos to upload on wikipedia? thank you, Anon111 (talk) 12:36, 16 April 2010 (UTC)Anon111

Re: Bclrocks10 again[edit]

Re your message: No, there was no SPI case. I blocked all of his accounts without the need for a case since he admitted it was him (not that it wasn't fairly obvious). All of three of his accounts remain blocked. His recent activity is on his original account where he has just been asking to be unblocked. He hasn't been unblocked and I'm not going to unblock him. -- Gogo Dodo (talk) 19:45, 17 April 2010 (UTC)

Clarification[edit]

The IP 173.206.222.117 and 128.100.14.157 are deleting info with references frequently in different pages. It seems that they are against one of the Marjas (Grand Ayatollah Reza Hosseini Nassab) and they are deleting references related to him, without participating in discussion. Academycanada (talk) 21:50, 29 April 2010 (UTC)

Hydrazine sulfate[edit]

Can you please review your reversion at Hydrazine sulfate and your vandalism message at my talk page? This edit was incorrect, and converted a long-standing correct statement into something that mis-states the cited reference. I simply reverted to the correct version of the article. 71.185.32.219 (talk) 10:44, 2 May 2010 (UTC)

Reading through the PDF supplied as a source I noticed at the end it states "it may play a role in reducing the severity of cachexia and in improving the quality of life of cancer patients." Am I missing something here? Jeffrey Mall (talkcontribs) - 10:59, 2 May 2010 (UTC)
I was looking at the other references, and the original statement was more consistent with those. I guess I missed that particular statement in the cited reference, which presents a slightly different conclusion. Thanks for taking a look. 71.185.32.219 (talk) 11:25, 2 May 2010 (UTC)
Sure thing. Jeffrey Mall (talkcontribs) - 17:01, 2 May 2010 (UTC)

I am sorry for the misunderstanding. I was trying to create a template page and erred in my actions. I believe everything is in order at this time.

Question[edit]

Why I can't change Egor Lavrov article status if it's improved? And my changes are reverted and you say it's vandalism?

I can tell you right now that this is not an A class article. If the article has been reviewed by an established editor please let them adjust its class. Jeffrey Mall (talkcontribs) - 00:19, 29 May 2010 (UTC)

Yes, it's not a class A, I'm sorry, I read the descriptions now, but it's clearly not a start, isn't it? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 66.239.100.68 (talk) 00:38, 29 May 2010 (UTC)

Actually, start class is about right. See: Wikipedia:WikiProject Biography/Assessment#Quality scale. Cheers, Jeffrey Mall (talkcontribs) - 03:17, 29 May 2010 (UTC)

Dorothy Dare[edit]

Hi, there. I remember that you told me I shouldn't upload any more photographs because they're "inappropriate". I know that it's not the picture itself but just the format in which I chose to categorize them as. Would you mind upload a picture of actress Dorothy Date to Wikipedia and then add it onto her Wikipedia page that I have created. That be very helpful and I don't want to risk getting blocked. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Josh Rumage (talkcontribs) 17:58, 29 May 2010 (UTC)

Hi. I don't handle images on Wikimedia sites as I know next to nothing about copyright laws. If you need any help with uploading images you should make a post on the help desk. If you have any copyright-related questions you can ask them here: Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. Cheers, Jeffrey Mall (talkcontribs) - 18:15, 29 May 2010 (UTC)

Thank you for your input, I'll just review the section you recommend and try to gain a better understanding of how to categorize future photographs. Please don't block me, I mean no harm. Thank you for your help! —Preceding unsigned comment added by Josh Rumage (talkcontribs) 23:40, 10 June 2010 (UTC)

Thank you . . .[edit]

For reverting vandalism on my talk page I appreciate it. Christina Silverman (talk) 02:53, 4 June 2010 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Thanks, Jeffrey, for deleting the "unauthorized" changes to my user page. Ges, this has been going on for over a month--to me and several other editors involved with a raid that I only vaguely now remember. Their MO is to make frivolous changes to user pages with dynamic or shared IP addresses. If I have my user page protected, then I'm afraid they will locate articles that I have created and vandalize them. I'd rather have them mess with my user page. Annoying, but who ya' gonna call? I do appreciate your diligence!!! Regards, Pinethicket (talk) 11:55, 4 June 2010 (UTC)

No problem. If it's indeed that bad or gets that bad it might be worth considering requesting a range block. Jeffrey Mall (talkcontribs) - 12:11, 4 June 2010 (UTC)

Peter Holmes a Court[edit]

Hello. You once reverted some deletions of referenced material from the Peter Holmes a Court entry. This page has become contentious again and there are now some editors banning contributors for posting referenced material, not the other way around. Please have a look at the entry and the edit history if you have the time.Edasent (talk) 15:35, 4 June 2010 (UTC)

Hi. Just to clarify, there is a difference between a ban and a block here on Wikipedia, what you've been seeing in logs are blocks, not bans, a block is a technical restriction that prevents an account or IP from editing for any set period of time, a ban is a formal, documented, revocation of your right to edit Wikipedia either in a certain area or Wikipedia in general. I made 2 reverts to the page in question last year to remove vandalism, I am not, and haven't been actively involved in editing the page and as such am unfamiliar with the circumstances, the editorial disputes that may have occured and the apparent SPI that took place. Cheers, Jeffrey Mall (talkcontribs) - 16:19, 4 June 2010 (UTC)

Ok, thanks for your response anyway. The disputes are similar to the situation you rectified previously where referenced material was removed and replaced with unreferenced or old material. Only this time a sockpuppet has complained WP:NPOV and gotten couple of vigilante admins involved - JzG and Guy - who are blocking editors who add anything they don't like. A case in point is the incorrect listing of 'dead links' and the removal of the latest information about the subject. I think that this is also a form of vandalism. Where 5 sockpuppets have been found active on the page - see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Sockpuppet_investigations/James1168/Archive -. I think one of them was the vandal you previously dealt with. It seems that there is an agenda to portray this subject in the best possible light, despite the availability of verifiable information to the contrary.Edasent (talk) 12:39, 5 June 2010 (UTC)

I disagree. I looked over the page's history and checked the Peter Holmes à Court's discussion page where I noticed User:Stifle requested quotations from the sources added by yourself, which you did not supply, you were also reverted several times by numerous editors with the general consensus being that you were giving certain viewpoints undue weight and were restoring edits either added by yourself or by another editor that were, put simply, borderline BLP violations. I'm still relatively unsure as to why you came to me however, these are the reverts I made to the page last year, not because they introduced contentious material to a page I was actively monitoring or involved in editing but because they were random acts of vandalism that I happened to stumble across full stop. I am not, and have no intention in getting involved any further with this page or the disputes revolved around it, if you need a second opinion or "outsider input" as it were, you might like to consider making a request for comment on the dispute or if you feel strongly enough about the situation make a post at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents.

Sorry it went that way. I've closed your RFA per your Email, I was going to expand my nomination statement to point out that you had tagged lots of articles as G10s and ask people to judge your fluffing the G10 question in that context, but I appreciate that trying to turn your RFA round at this stage would have been unlikely. I hope this wasn't too unpleasant an experience and please remember even the strongest of opposes were coming from people who value you as a member of the community - just think you aren't yet ready for adminship. ϢereSpielChequers 17:13, 7 June 2010 (UTC)

Good luck![edit]

I found out this after it all began. (When I eventually read WP:RFA properly...) Oh, and good luck! TFOWRidle vapourings 14:05, 6 June 2010 (UTC)

Thanks! You too! As I didn't add the notice when I had my last RfA I added this time round. Cheers, Jeffrey Mall (talkcontribs) - 14:16, 6 June 2010 (UTC)

Nothing personal[edit]

I just wanted you to know that, although I'm giving you a hard time in your RfA, it's nothing personal. I actually went to the RfA with the intention of supporting. I hope you don't take it too hard. Best, HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 21:04, 6 June 2010 (UTC)

Heck I actually supported! I also want to tell you that I harbo no hard feelings toward you :) You are a very nice, respectable and to be honest, trustworthy person. I just think that you've fallen for the myth that admins are special and therfore immune to community sanctions.--White Shadows stood on the edge 21:08, 6 June 2010 (UTC)
Thanks both, I know it's nothing personal :-). But you've got to make sure you're supporting a candidate your comfortable with being an administrator, if you're not comfortable with me being one then, heck, so be it, I'll still be around and I'll still help out in the areas I can without the tools.

Well if it doesn't work out, you're welcome to join the merry band of editors who treat my talk page like the miscellaneous admin noticeboard! If it does, then just be careful and bear in mind the opposers' points. :) HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 21:23, 6 June 2010 (UTC)
To be honest If you do pass hope the best for you. If not then I'll be awaiting your third attempt and hopefully then I can support. (I've also asked a follow-up Q so you may still get my support afterall)--White Shadows stood on the edge 21:26, 6 June 2010 (UTC)
Even if I'd passed with full confidence and 100% support from the community I'd still be careful regardless as I'd be new to the whole thing (just like trying rollback for the first time), thanks HJ Mitchell. Ok, will try to answer that for you as soon as possible White Shadows. Cheers, Jeffrey Mall (talkcontribs) - 21:40, 6 June 2010 (UTC)

Photographs[edit]

Hello, I just wanted you to know that I am gaining a better understanding on what formats to use for when uploading pictures here on Wikipedia. In fact, I have uploaded a few photographs of deceased celebrities and I knew what formats were acceptable and I did this in the course of a week and haven't gotten into "hot water" with anyone here. I just wanted you to know that I have improved myself with my formats and I think I am now more keen on what to do. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Josh Rumage (talkcontribs) 22:18, 11 June 2010 (UTC)

Good time on Wikipedia[edit]

For all the edits you made for your good time on Wikipedia, here's a cookie and a milk.

Milk glass.jpg Mmm - Milk!
A tall, cool glass of milk just for you! Milk somehow promotes WikiLove and hopefully this has made your day better. Spread the WikiLove by giving someone else a glass of milk, whether it be someone you have had disagreements with in the past or someone putting up with some stick at this time. Enjoy!

deOrphaning script[edit]

Hello everyone! I was just working on responding to a couple bug reports for a script that I worked up as part of a request from this project, and I noticed that only a couple people (who weren't even on this mailing list) are actually using the script. A little history on the script: In March of 2014, Jim Cartar came to my user talk page and said he needed some help in acquiring a script for a backlog drive that he was working on that could keep track of and score deOrphanings for a scored backlog drive. I took that request to the project's talk page (BackLog Drive "DO" (De-Orphaning) script proposal) and there was near unanimous support for this. I thought about the proposal and decided the best way to do it was to build a new script (which is still no where near as comprehensive as Manishearth's OrphanTabs) and build into it a mechanism that will make BLD scoring easy.

What I'm wondering at this point is, since there appears to be only two people using the script, should I continue to develop this script with a goal of using it for scoring BLDs or just debug the existing script and leave it at that. Thanks for any replies or comments.

If you wish to opt-out of future mailings, please remove yourself from the mailing list or alternatively to opt-out of all massmessage mailings, you may add Category:Opted-out of message delivery to your user talk page.

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
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.
