Talk Pages[edit]

It is customary not to edit talk pages for content nor remove talk content as you did on Ring a Ring O'Roses‎. It also customary to add discussion at the end of section rather than at the top of them,as you did on Ring a Ring O'Roses‎. New discussion sections should be added at the end of all current discussions on talk pages. Thanks for all your help and I hope you don't mind me correcting these additions on the talkpage. leontes 17:22, 14 May 2007 (UTC)

True Scotsman

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on True Scotsman, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the page appears to have no meaningful content or history, and the text is unsalvageably incoherent.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion. To do this, add {{hangon}} on the top of the page (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag) and leave a note on the page's talk page explaining your position. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself.

If the page you created was a test, please use the sandbox for any other experiments you would like to do. Feel free to leave a message on my talk page if you have any questions about this. Corvus cornixtalk 22:16, 11 May 2008 (UTC)

I tagged it because, as I indicated, it's nonsense. You may also want to read the policy on original research. Corvus cornixtalk 01:25, 12 May 2008 (UTC)

Your recent edits[edit]

Hi there. In case you didn't know, when you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion, you should sign your posts by typing four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment. If you can't type the tilde character, you should click on the signature button Button sig.png located above the edit window. This will automatically insert a signature with your name and the time you posted the comment. This information is useful because other editors will be able to tell who said what, and when. Thank you! --SineBot (talk) 18:41, 12 May 2008 (UTC)

On the Autocannon page, you said that "mechanically fed" is more technically accurate, but that implies it works like an autoloader, and they do not. There is no mechanical mechanism feeding shells into it. They are fed by gravity, a belt, or in some cases, a detachable magazine. A belt is the most common, especially in modern versions. We don't say a machine gun is mechanically fed either. --Trifler (talk) 23:05, 15 August 2015 (UTC)

Nom 1 and 2[edit]

Hi mackaerospace, I hope your article survives AfD and when it does, suggest you self nominate it* for Did You Know (DYK) or let me know and I will. cheers, Julia Rossi (talk) 03:25, 13 May 2008 (UTC)
*within five days of putting those references into the body of the text. : ) JR

Hi again, even one solid ref is enough for delete protection -- articles can float around on refs from newspapers and magazines because they're third party sources, not OR. Quick tutorial: <ref>[http://www.example etc Daily Mail, Bishops agree to no kilt undies in Scotland's summer J.MacKilty]</ref> and a section

will scoop them all into the list automatically. Best, Julia Rossi (talk) 23:57, 13 May 2008 (UTC)

I've just got your note and asked someone who's been through it. Will let you know as soon as they get back. Of course it's a "he" -- If you think the Scottish Wiks notice board will be fair, it's a good idea. Take a look at some threads to judge how they handle things (there may still be a cringe factor as appeared on the AfD page but others are proud in the right way so...). You could wait until its up on DYK noms first to give it some cred.

The other thing is two things: 1) follow up the section you suggested adding on the AfD page, and 2) when you have time maybe something about the cringe factor could go into the article itself with a tiny reflection on why that is in a historical context. Then when it's got legs, you could email a suitable Scottish rag to tell them about it? Legs and more legs. Oh, three, so I lied too, ; ) Julia Rossi (talk) 23:31, 15 May 2008 (UTC)

Am still in process, but you might like to look at the wording at my sandbox here[1] and change it or write something better, however you like, Julia Rossi (talk) 02:01, 16 May 2008 (UTC)

5/17 DYK[edit]

Updated DYK query On 17 May, 2008, Did you know? was updated with a fact from the article True Scotsman, which you created or substantially expanded. If you know of another interesting fact from a recently created article, then please suggest it on the Did you know? talk page.

Talk:Oxford Brookes University[edit]

Hi, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. Your 21 October 2011‎ talk page comments on Talk:Oxford Brookes University were not added to the bottom of the page. New discussion page messages and topics should always be added to the bottom. Your message has been moved down by me. In the future you can use the "New section" link in top right. For more details see talk page guidelines. Happy New Year! --220 of Borg 05:30, 4 January 2012 (UTC)

Sporran misconception[edit]

I can't see any explanation why this unsourced section should appear in the Sporran article. Having a problem with other editors adding unsourced rubbish is not a reason to have an unsourced explanation in the article telling them they are wrong. It is a reason for having policies about citing content and removing the unsourced rubbish. This cuts both ways; your content requires cites too. And what some mistaken editor may incorrectly believe is of no interest to Wikipedia, or its readers.

Otherwise would be justifiable to explain that sporrans running the hills with the wild haggis is also a misconception? You know, to stop people adding it? I can't demonstrate that anyone has this misconception, and I certainly don't have any sources that say it is a misconception, but it's just as valid as what you've added. See, there's an infinite number of untrue things that might be added, but we don't concern ourselves with what isn't true without a cite. --Escape Orbit (Talk) 18:04, 23 November 2012 (UTC)

Sorry, you cannot use websites reproducing older versions of the Sporran article as cites. Wikipedia cannot cite itself. Besides which, these do not support what you say as they do not describe anything as a misconception. You are the one saying it is a misconception. --Escape Orbit (Talk) 18:24, 23 November 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for August 31[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited The Squad (film), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Greenhorn (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). 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.
