Emily Webley-Smith[edit]

Hello JoRoFo. In the introductory paragraph of the article on Emily Webley-Smith, you wrote "She is currently the British No.6", which is correct. However, since Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, it is more important to mention her highest British ranking than her current one. I discovered that she has been the British No.5, but I was unable to find out whether that is her highest ranking. Do you have any source with this information? Thank you.

Chang Kai-Chen[edit]

Information.svg Hi, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you recently tried to give a page a different title by copying its content and pasting it into another page with a different name. This is known as a "cut and paste move", and it is undesirable because it splits the page history which is needed for attribution and various other purposes. Instead, the software used by Wikipedia has a feature that allows pages to be moved to a new title together with their edit history.

In most cases, once your account is four days old and has ten edits, you should be able to move an article yourself using the "Move" tab at the top of the page. This both preserves the page history intact and automatically creates a redirect from the old title to the new. If you cannot perform a particular page move yourself this way (e.g. because a page already exists at the target title), please follow the instructions at requested moves to have it moved by someone else. Also, if there are any other articles that you moved by copying and pasting, even if it was a long time ago, please list them at Wikipedia:Cut and paste move repair holding pen. Thank you.

Karen Paterson[edit]

How about DYK for that one? Check it out. Seb az86556 (talk) 12:21, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

DYK for Claire Curran[edit]

Updated DYK query On August 31, 2009, Did you know? was updated with a fact from the article Claire Curran, which you created or substantially expanded. You are welcome to check how many hits your article got while on the front page (here's how) and add it to DYKSTATS if it got over 5,000. If you know of another interesting fact from a recently created article, then please suggest it on the Did you know? talk page.

Roger Federer[edit]

I see that you changed Roger Federer's ranking to 4th. This is wrong

Just because you are British doesnt mean you can change this accommodating for Andy Murray. Roger is still ranked 3rd, changing it because of a personal fad you have, is wrong — Preceding unsigned comment added by 58.178.4.44 (talk) 15:56, 3 October 2011 (UTC)

If you had checked the Roger Federer page history correctly instead of jumping in with accusations, you would have seen that I did nothing of the sort. The only change I made to the Roger Federer article was to add him to the category entitled "Hopman Cup competitors". Additionally, I find the wording of your message to be rude, presumptuous and argumentative. When making a comment about an article revision someone may or may not have done, there is no need to turn the conversation personal by bringing their nationality into it or suggesting that I have some kind of "personal fad". I suggest you check your facts more carefully in future and alter the tone you use to communicate with people. JoRoFo (talk) 17:13, 3 October 2011 (UTC)

Userrights[edit]

Yo; just jumping in to say that, in light of your great article creations, I'm giving you the "autopatrolled" user right; this means that you're trusted enough for your articles not to appear in the new pages queue. Keep up the good work! Cheers, Ironholds (talk) 03:47, 10 October 2011 (UTC)

Thanks very much. I do try :-) JoRoFo (talk) 12:26, 10 October 2011 (UTC)

One request, when you create articles, can you try to add relevent WP:WikiProject tags to the talk pages, to ensure that they can be maintained by those interested in those topics. Thanks, The-Pope (talk) 16:08, 10 October 2011 (UTC)

Hopman Cup nations[edit]

You should join the entries for Yugoslavia, Serbia and Montenegro, and Serbia, then Soviet Union, Russia, and CIS, and finally Czechoslavakia and Czech Republic. Those are the successor nations and their results in all historical sport events, medal tables etc. are always counted together. There is no reason to list former countries such as Soviet Union, Yugoslavia or Czechoslovakia in historical tables, since they alwyas have a legitimate successor. 83.240.71.226 (talk) 00:54, 6 January 2012 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Aegon GB Pro-Series Wrexham[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Aegon GB Pro-Series Wrexham has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

This is a non-notable tournament per Tennis Project Guidelines. It and all the subsequent yearly events do not qualify. Not sure how we missed this event.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.
