For twice going out of your way to take photographs to improve Buildings of Jesus College, Oxford (about a rival college, indeed!) a barnstar is humbly offered with my thanks. BencherliteTalk 16:13, 13 July 2009 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

Editors Barnstar Hires.png The Editor's Barnstar
For intelligent editing of Judy Goffman Cutler and Laurence S. Cutler, pages that were overstuffed PROMO when you found them. E.M.Gregory (talk) 11:35, 10 March 2017 (UTC)

University of Siena[edit]

The article is based on ONE source inserted by one contributor, a book published in 1895. We are in 2017. It should be considered original research, being that it's generally accepted the 1240 as year of foundation. 1408 is the year of In Apostolicae Sedis specula, a Papal bull that confirmed the privileges to the university of Siena as studium generale. I'm fixing the paragraph with more sources. --Chiorbone da Frittole (talk) 14:57, 21 March 2017 (UTC)

Obviously if you can find sources of the same quality as the book by Hastings Rashdall then you should feel free to edit the text, but you will need proper sources. Jonathan A Jones (talk) 15:09, 21 March 2017 (UTC)

Barry Clarke sockpuppet[edit]

I'm assuming you already got a ping, but I wanted to make sure you were aware of Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Barryispuzzled. – Joe (talk) 00:43, 21 July 2017 (UTC)

Thanks. You won't be surprised to hear that I share your suspicions about these accounts. As far as I recall the original (December 2016) IP was probably a friend of Paul Frampton, but that all went quiet fairly quickly. Jonathan A Jones (talk) 06:44, 21 July 2017 (UTC)


Hello Jonathon -- I'm organizing some protection for this article and perhaps some discipline for the miscreants. Unless you are an admin. Rhadow (talk) 17:13, 7 September 2017 (UTC)

Thanks. I'm not an admin, but at least one admin seem to have some idea of what is going on. Regards, Jonathan A Jones (talk) 17:15, 7 September 2017 (UTC)
This is your only warning; if you template a regular again, you may be blocked from editing without further notice. Chris Troutman (talk) 20:40, 7 September 2017 (UTC)
Given that you are a regular you might wish to review this comment [1] from an admin before restoring inappropriate material at a BLP. Regards, Jonathan A Jones (talk) 20:46, 7 September 2017 (UTC)
And? The material I restored was about Hurricane Harvey, not any "videotape controversy." Further, I'm aware of discretionary sanctions, as there is on BLPs and a host of other issues. It is not an injunction to prevent my countervandalism. So you know, Wikipedia still hands out official boomerangs if you really wanted one. The number one reason they've been so popular (like that scene in Hudsucker Proxy) is because folks get themselves in a rush unnecesarily. You might also read the essay I linked to because clearly you're not familiar with the use of {{Uw-dttr4im}}. Chris Troutman (talk) 20:57, 7 September 2017 (UTC)
Oops: I meant this comment [2] from a different admin; thanks for pointing out my slip. Jonathan A Jones (talk) 21:20, 7 September 2017 (UTC)
