A barnstar for you![edit]

Thanks, JohnInDC! Your efforts in resolving my request for assistance encouraged a new editor to sign up for an account and respond to requests to discuss an article they were editing. Your suggestions for resolving the conflict also resulted in an improved article. Bryan H Bell (talk) 18:41, 18 August 2016 (UTC)

Just be aware...[edit]

I just want you to be aware that your edits will likely be reverted by Pncomeaux and summarized as "vandalism". I'm sure you're already aware of it, but he'll keep reverting until either you quit or it gets taken to an administrator. Just a side note – and I'm sure you're aware of this as well – but I agree with you removing it! Corkythehornetfan (ping me) 14:29, 19 August 2016 (UTC)

I haven't been following this closely - well, honestly, at all - until quite recently but I looked around enough beforehand to appreciate that I may be stepping into a bit of a hornet's nest. Perhaps he'll respect the actions of yet another (and disinterested) editor more than he has those of the "biased" LSU and LTU partisans up to this point - I don't know. At the very least it will force him away from those extraneous arguments and down to the substance. I may drop him a note on his Talk page - thanks for the head's up!

I doubt he will, but we can only hope! Corkythehornetfan (ping me)
I did leave a note on his Talk page and hope that it at least spurs some dialogue. I've made a few comments at Talk:Louisiana–Lafayette Ragin' Cajuns that he could respond to. Hope he does. JohnInDC (talk) 15:36, 19 August 2016 (UTC)

University of Michigan talk page[edit]

Would something like this be better for a user's sandbox? IMO, it is, but I am not really sure... you deal with Univ. of Mich. a lot, and there is a very good chance that you know of more Wiki guidelines than I do, so I figured I'd ask ya. I've been wondering about this for a while now... Corkythehornetfan (ping me) 01:30, 21 August 2016 (UTC)

I'd noticed that and had been trying to think of a better place for it. There's WP:Articles for creation of course, but that wouldn't capture the Michigan angle. I do agree it's a bit cluttery, and distracting for those of us who have it watch listed! JohnInDC (talk) 01:45, 22 August 2016 (UTC)
