Article suggestion[edit]

A long time ago I started enzyme catalysis, but never got around to expanding it with examples. This might be something you'd enjoy working on? Tim Vickers (talk) 00:55, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

Of course, that's very sensible. As to choosing a lab, my unsolicited advice would be to find one where you like the people, get on OK with the boss and the project uses a variety of methods to work on an important problem. Good luck! Tim Vickers (talk) 01:23, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

Reverting vandalism[edit]

Thanks for the notification. As I am not a Wikipedia admin, I can't block anybody. The best thing to do in such a situation is leave a notice on the AIV noticeboard.

Also I'd recommend you read Help:Minor edit regarding when to mark an edit as 'minor'. I noticed several of your edits marked minor that probably should not have been.

I know there is a lot to learn here and it can seem overwhelming. Don't let it intimidate you. Since you are a newcomer, people will be understanding and willing to cut you some slack. Welcome to Wikipedia and keep up the great work! ScottJ (talk) 18:44, 25 February 2009 (UTC)


I have granted rollback rights to your account; the reason for this is that after a review of some of your contributions, I believe I can trust you to use rollback correctly by using it for its intended usage of reverting vandalism, and that you will not abuse it by reverting good-faith edits or to revert-war. For information on rollback, see Wikipedia:New admin school/Rollback and Wikipedia:Rollback feature. If you do not want rollback, just let me know, and I'll remove it. Good luck and thanks. –Juliancolton Tropical Cyclone 03:04, 10 March 2009 (UTC)


Thanks for the quick reversion of vandalism on my page! —Mr. E. Sánchez (that's me!)What I Do / What I Say 15:29, 10 March 2009 (UTC)


The page Wikipedia:Preparing images for upload gives some good general advice. For black-and-white line art like reaction mechanisms I tend to use PNG files with a bitmap format (reduces file size) and a resolution of 1,200 pixels per inch. Other people can make these as SVG files, which are even better, but I've never leaned that software! Tim Vickers (talk) 15:54, 28 April 2009 (UTC)

File:HK chimera resized.png listed for deletion[edit]

An image or media file that you uploaded or altered, File:HK chimera resized.png, has been listed at Wikipedia:Files for deletion. Please see the discussion to see why this is (you may have to search for the title of the image to find its entry), if you are interested in it not being deleted. Thank you.

Cannabis in united kingdom edit[edit]

Hi there Kehrbykid. I understand that you weren't happy with my edit on this particular page. A spliff and a joint are terms which are used interchangeably, the latter being a more common term in the United States and the former being the more popular term in the United Kingdom; hence the reason why I changed the text on the image considering the page is about Cannabis in the UK, as the majority of people from my country (UK) refer to a cannabis cigarette using the word 'spliff' rather than a 'joint' which is a very American term. I hope you now understand why this particular word would be a more appropriate choice of slang than the American term.

Here are some quotes taken from the Joint (cannabis) page:

'Though all joints customarily contain cannabis,[6] regional differences have been noted. In Europe, certain Commonwealth nations, and more recently North America, joints, or spliffs,[7] typically include a bit of rolled cigarette packet cardboard or business card in one end to serve as a mouthpiece.'

'The term 'spliff' is a West Indian word of Jamaican English origin but has spread to several western countries, particularly the UK, and many countries in Europe.'

Thank you for your time.

Lootera edit[edit]

I have no idea why people who control Wikipedia entries are so defensive about articles. It was an edit that made the sentence grammatically correct and better to read. If that is not "constructive", I don't know what is.

Responded to you[edit]

Well sorry for the rice burner thing just a little peeved off because a toyota camry slamed into a telephone pole on my street I deleted them thank you for reminding me — Preceding unsigned comment added by FirebirdMC (talkcontribs) 18:36, 2 November 2014 (UTC)


Thank you for the quick work at the PhreakNIC article.[1] I was giving a talk on Wikipedia, and one of the audience members (without my knowledge) chose to vandalize the article during my talk. When it was pointed out, I was hoping that someone such as yourself would quickly revert the edit, which was exactly what happened, and then I used it as an example of how these processes work on Wikipedia. I and the audience went and looked at the warning template, and it was all fascinating to the audience, and I was very glad that you chose a gentle response.[2] So I just wanted to say thanks for your timely and courteous actions, good job! --Elonka 19:14, 2 November 2014 (UTC)


Thanks for helping to clean up his mess. We edit-conflicted, with you giving him a level4 warning while I was blocking him. Hope you don't mind my pushing that button. DMacks (talk) 19:56, 2 November 2014 (UTC)

Don't Post Warnings without Reverting the Content in Question[edit]

I noticed you posted a warning on User talk: about a bad edit they made on Bad Girls Club (season 11) which said you reverted their edit. But the edit was never reverted. I have since fixed this but in future try to first revert the edit in question, then post a warning. Thanks!EoRdE6 (talk) 20:10, 13 November 2014 (UTC)

There ought to be a barnstar for making gracious apologies, and yours would make a good example for how to do it. Thanks for the quick response, and thank you for being an asset to the community. WhatamIdoing (talk) 05:56, 19 November 2014 (UTC)
