A Note on threading:

Interpersonal communication does not work when messages are left on individual users' talk pages rather than threaded, especially when a third party wishes to read or reply.

Being a "bear of very little brain", I get easily confused when trying to follow conversations that bounce back and forth, so I've decided to try the convention that many others seem to use, aggregation of messages on either your talk page or my talk page. If the conversation is about an article I will try to aggregate on the article's talk page.

  • If the conversation is on your talk page or an article talk page, I will watch it.
  • If the conversation is on my talk page or an article talk page and I think that you may not be watching it, I will link to it in a note on your talk page, or in the edit summary of an empty edit. But if you start a thread here, please watch it.

I may mess up, don't worry, I'll find it eventually. Ping me if you really need to.

please note this is a personal preference rather than a matter of site policy

Sting at ANI[edit]

I mentioned your name as the blocking admin at WP:ANI, a discussion about an IP doubling the sales figures for Sting. Binksternet (talk) 15:56, 2 October 2015 (UTC)

"That's tomorrow, and that is it for us today ... thanks again for watching, we'll leave you with Sting, and a cut off his new album." Such a good song. :P — Cirt (talk) 03:59, 5 October 2015 (UTC)

Addressed your comment[edit]

Thanks for commenting at Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/R U Professional/archive1.

It was a good recommendation, so I've implemented it directly in the article.

Thanks also for all of your copyediting help!

Perhaps you could revisit?

Thank you, it looks super. I will support, I think, but I need to read the article one more time first. --John (talk) 20:30, 4 October 2015 (UTC)
Okay sounds good, keep me posted, — Cirt (talk) 02:21, 5 October 2015 (UTC)
