Solid-state ionics[edit]

Sorry, my mistake, when I read through the AfD I (somehow) missed your argument specifically opposed redirecting. The opinions for redirecting and the tone of some of the keeps lead me to think the move would probably be uncontroversial - or at least bold rather than reckless.

GA Sweeps invitation[edit]

Hello, I hope you are doing well. I am sending you this message since you are listed as a GA reviewer. I would like to invite you to consider helping with the GA sweeps process. Sweeps helps to ensure that the oldest GAs still meet the criteria, and improve the quality of GAs overall. Unfortunately, last month only two articles were reviewed. This is definitely a low point after our peak at the beginning of the process when 163 articles were reviewed in September 2007. After nearly two years, the running total has just passed the 50% mark. In order to expediate the reviewing, several changes have been made to the process. A new worklist has been created, detailing which articles are left to review. All exempt and previously reviewed articles have already been removed from the list. Instead of reviewing by topic, you can consider picking and choosing whichever articles interest you.

We are always looking for new members to assist with the remaining articles, so if you are interested or know of anybody that can assist, please visit the GA sweeps page. In addition, for every member that reviews 100 articles or has a significant impact on the process, s/he will get an award when they reach that threshold. If only 14 editors achieve this feat starting now, we would be done with Sweeps! Of course, having more people reviewing less articles would be better for all involved, so please consider asking others to help out. Feel free to stop by and only review a few articles, something's better than nothing! Take a look at the list, and see what articles interest you. Let's work to complete Sweeps so that efforts can be fully focused on the backlog at GAN. If you have any questions about the process, reviewing, or need help with a particular article, please contact me or OhanaUnited and we'll be happy to help. --Happy editing!

Thanx[edit]

Thanks very much for the note. Forgive me for the inconvenience. Le Anh-Huy (talk) 06:50, 19 May 2009 (UTC)

Your comments in Wikipedia:Requests_for_adminship/LessHeard_vanU_2#Oppose[edit]

I think I may not have been clear enough in my remarks.... you said

So, only admins have the right to vote? I have no intention of ever being an administrator on en.wiki, but I don't think that that removes me from being a member of the community who can voice an opinion on who should or should not be an administrator. This caste power without knowledge of responsibility among en.wiki administrators is, in my opinion, getting to be too much. --KP Botany (talk) 13:54, 23 May 2009 (UTC)

I was in no way suggesting that only admins be allowed to vote. What I was objecting to was the notion that admins who themselves are not willing to put themselves in front of the community nevertheless felt justified in voting oppose when someone else does. That just seems wrong. If you look at my User:Lar/Accountability page, I have two standards, one for admins (they must themselves be accountable) and one for non (they must be contributors who have demonstrated they are here to contribute)... Hope that helps. It's over now, LHVU passed (thankfully), but I did want to clear that up. Feel free to engage further if you like. ++Lar: t/c 17:04, 24 May 2009 (UTC)


ThankSpam[edit]

My RfA

Thank you for participating in my "RecFA", which passed with a final tally of 153/39/22. There were issues raised regarding my adminship that I intend to cogitate upon, but I am grateful for the very many supportive comments I received and for the efforts of certain editors (Ceoil, Noroton and Lar especially) in responding to some issues. I wish to note how humbled I was when I read Buster7's support comment, although a fair majority gave me great pleasure. I would also note those whose opposes or neutral were based in process concerns and who otherwise commented kindly in regard to my record.
I recognise that the process itself was unusual, and the format was generally considered questionable - and I accept that I was mistaken in my perception of how it would be received - but I am particularly grateful for those whose opposes and neutrals were based in perceptions of how I was not performing to the standards expected of an administrator. As much as the support I received, those comments are hopefully going to allow me to be a better contributor to the project. Thank you. Very much. LessHeard vanU (talk) 21:28, 24 May 2009 (UTC)

RFC:User conduct for Born2cycle[edit]

Hi KP Botany. I know you have interacted with Born2cycle in the past, so I wanted to let you know I've created a User Conduct RFC for the user: Wikipedia:Requests for comment/Born2cycle. You are mentioned in it, feel free to endorse or decline. tedder (talk) 03:23, 4 June 2009 (UTC)


Coconut Oil[edit]

It looks like you are gone for a while. There is a note to email you, but I don't see how to do that. We had an interaction on the discussion page of the Herbal Medicine article. I'm wondering what you think about the coconut oil article. I did a little work on it a while back. I just looked at it again (6/16/09) and at least two sections have been added making very strong claims for the health benefits of coconut oil with almost zero substantiation. Are you an experienced enough editor to know how to handle this type of situation? Should I just delete all unreferenced material? It looks as this has happened a couple of times in the past. Any suggestions? --Little Flower Eagle (talk) 19:00, 16 June 2009 (UTC)

Hey, There is an argument between a user and me concerning the use of this picture in Canna (plant). Please see the article and it's talk page and advice. Thanks --Muhammad(talk) 11:54, 20 July 2009 (UTC)

Help needed[edit]

I have created 3 new pages on famous Indian personalities. Within few seconds the deletion log is added or page itself is deleted. Kindly help. Now I have created page on Bollimunta Sivaramakrishna. It is immediately deleted before some more information is added to it. Can you help me.Dr. Rajasekhar A. 07:09, 6 August 2009 (UTC)

Naming Conventions. RFC: Removal of exceptions to "use common names" passage.[edit]

This is to inform you that removing exceptions to the use of "most Common Names" as the titles of Wikipedia articles from the the Talk:Naming_Conventions policy page, is the subject of a referral for Comment (RfC). This follows recent changes by some editors.

You are being informed as an editor previously involved in discussion of these issues relevant to that policy page. You are invited to comment at this location. Xandar 21:38, 13 September 2009 (UTC)

Ecology[edit]

The article Ecology is nominated for GA and has been vastly expanded and referenced by Thompsma. It really needs a lot of editoral work and input. There is some discussion on the talk page as well. I know you are interested in the Ecology project, so I thought you might like to throw in your two cents. Peace. Earthdirt (talk) 13:34, 16 January 2010 (UTC)

Oh dear[edit]

You've been gone for a while.

Hope you're all right. DS (talk) 18:36, 19 January 2010 (UTC)

Same here: hope everything's okay. Acalamari 19:23, 19 February 2010 (UTC)
I'm fine, just busy finishing lengthy professional certification, writing, doing my art work, moved for a job, blah, blah blah. Thanks for asking! I'll be back. --216.64.190.254 (talk) 20:03, 1 May 2010 (UTC)

GA reassessment of Daniel Rodríguez[edit]

I have conducted a reassessment of the above article as part of the GA Sweeps process. You are being notified as you have made a number of contributions to the article. I have found some concerns which you can see at Talk:Daniel Rodríguez/GA1. I have placed the article on hold whilst these are fixed. Thanks. Jezhotwells (talk) 11:37, 23 February 2010 (UTC)
