Hi Jonathan, and welcome to Wikipedia.

Thankyou for finding the time to sign up and contribute to our little project. If you're in doubt about anything, you might want to check out some of these pages:

It's also a good idea to sign the new user log and add a little about yourself.

When contributing to a talk page, you can sign your name by typing four tildes after your comments, like this: ~~~~. (Just so you know, some people won't pay attention to unsigned comments).

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask me at my talk page, or at the Help desk or Village Pump.

Above all, make sure you be bold when contributing, and have fun!

Wonderful. I found the site in google and faithfuly transcribed its name into wiki a minute later - and still managed to get it wrong! I stand corrected, thanks. --Red King 11:57, 4 December 2005 (UTC)

Di Gi Charat[edit]

Hi, a while ago, in fact over a year ago in May 2005 you added some information to the Di Gi Charat article concerning its history. That information is still in the article basically left intact. I think that this is very valuable information to the article and I'm wondering if you remember where you got it from so I can add references in the Di Gi Charat article. --Squilibob 10:07, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

  • Other than watching the series and catloguing my own music collection, I got a lot of character information from the Di Gi Charat Theater books.


G'day Jonathan,

You just added House to the Lupus article and I just removed it, but I wanted to let you know why. As of now there's a generaly consensus from the regular contributors that the addition of House won't add much to an already long article, particularly because it is never actually used as a diagnosis, only as a potential diagnosis. I started on the article because of the special feature on the 2nd season DVD where it talks about the number of times Lupus has been mentioned. However, the wikipedia manual of style does support the inclusion of cultural references in articles if there is a point in the article itself (rather than a section solely for cultural references) where the inclusion is warranted. If you could think of a place to insert the link to House, then we'd finally have a place to put it.

Removal of animated gif[edit]

This is a good call[1], it was slow to laod and unattractive. HighInBC(Need help? Ask me) 17:24, 24 April 2007 (UTC)


Hi. You tagged Banners in Northern Ireland as having disputed neutrality, but didn't provide any explanation on the talk page saying why you think the article is not neutral or might be seen as non-neutral. Could you please do this so that I can improve the page? Ta. --Helenalex (talk) 04:54, 24 February 2008 (UTC)

Historical inaccuracies in the film Zulu[edit]

Concerning the comment "<!--spacing, please do not remove-->", yes I would appreciate it being left in place, since it corrects certain problems in rendering which are seen only under Internet Explorer and not under other browsers. I can be more specific if you like, but that's its purpose in a nutshell. Ed Fitzgerald (unfutz) (talk / cont) 02:49, 22 August 2008 (UTC)

  • Can you be more specific? I can't seem to replicate the error in Internet Explorer 6. --Jonathan Drain (talk) 05:41, 22 August 2008 (UTC)
  • Sure, without the spacing, the lede paragraph (or the final paragraph of the lede section) is so close to the table of contents that it's visually annoying, and makes reading the lede more difficult. The same is true of the external links section (or whatever the last section of the body of the article is) in relation to any navboxes that may be at the bottom of the article -- they "bump up" against the navboxes in a way that provides no visually separation and is not conducive to easy reading. (This is under IE 7) Other browsers provide just enough separation between these elements, but IE doesn't, hence the spacing. I've checked the effect of it under Safari and Firefox, and, while the spacing isn't necessary with these browsers, the effect is not bad, and contributes to a better visual balance in the page overall. Ed Fitzgerald (unfutz) (talk / cont) 11:01, 22 August 2008 (UTC)
  • I understand. Perhaps this is something Wikipedia administrators could address in an IE-specific CSS update. Something like "#toc {margin-top:1em;}"? --Jonathan Drain (talk) 19:15, 22 August 2008 (UTC)
That would be great. Ed Fitzgerald (unfutz) (talk / cont) 22:30, 22 August 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Priest black[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Priest black requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a very short article providing little or no context to the reader. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the article does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that a copy be emailed to you. TallNapoleon (talk) 02:18, 8 October 2008 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for File:Sapphireandsteel.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Sapphireandsteel.jpg. You've indicated that the image meets Wikipedia's criteria for non-free content, but there is no explanation of why it meets those criteria. Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. If you have any questions, please post them at Wikipedia:Media copyright questions.

Thank you for your cooperation. NOTE: once you correct this, please remove the tag from the image's page. STBotI (talk) 14:54, 9 February 2009 (UTC)


Hi, I dropped by this article to Stub-sort it, but found that it isn't a stub: if you want to show that a section needs expansion, the tag to use is {{expand|section}}. But have you noticed that there was a chunk on Ancient Rome until June 2008? Removed in this edit. No comment at the time, but perhaps there should have been? PamD (talk) 07:34, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Australium[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Australium, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a redirect to an article talk page, file description page, file talk page, MediaWiki page, MediaWiki talk page, category talk page, portal talk page, template talk page, help talk, user page, user talk or special page from the main/article space.

If you can fix the redirect to point to a mainspace page, please do so and remove the speedy deletion tag. However, please do not remove the speedy deletion tag unless you are fixing the redirect. If you think the redirect should be retained as is for some reason, you can request that administrators wait a while before deleting it. To do this, affix the template {{hangon}} to the page and state your reasoning on the article's talk page. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this.
