Hernán Cortés[edit]

Hi there. In answer to your question about why I reverted your edit to this article -- it was only because the info you had added was redundant, since it was already mentioned in the 'Early life' section that Francisco Pizarro was his second cousin. I had meant merely to undo your edit so I could add an explanation in the edit summary, but I accidentally hit the rollback button instead. Regards, --cjllw ʘ TALK 22:42, 11 February 2009 (UTC)

March 2009[edit]

Information.svg Welcome and thank you for experimenting with Wikipedia. Your test on the page The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time worked, so it has been reverted or removed. Please take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. If you would like to experiment further, please use the sandbox instead. Thank you.  rdunnPLIB  10:07, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

I was in fact not testing or experimenting, I was making a note I felt that was important. When it comes to games in the Legend of Zelda series, the order in which they are set are largely irrelevant. While Majora's Mask and The Wind Waker must come after Ocarina of Time, other than that the playing experience does not change depending on in which order they appear to be, and they are interchangable.

Your rollback request[edit]

Hello Knight of Truth, I have granted rollback rights to your account in accordance with your request. Please be aware that rollback should be used to revert vandalism/spam/blatantly unconstructive edits, and that using it to revert anything else (such as by revert-warring or reverting edits you disagree with) can lead to it being removed from your account...sometimes without any warning, depending on the admin who becomes aware of any misuse. If you think an edit should require a reason for reverting, then don't use rollback and instead, use a manual edit summary. For practice, you may wish to see Wikipedia:New admin school/Rollback. Good luck. Acalamari 20:39, 28 November 2011 (UTC)

Renaming Operation Sea Lion : The Sandhurst Wargame[edit]

Hello KoT. If you`re going to rename the above page could you make it : Operation Sea Lion (the Sandhurst wargame) Rather than : Operation Sea Lion (wargame) It is rather more significant than just any old wargame. JustinSmith (talk) 13:49, 15 January 2013 (UTC)

USS Pueblo (AGER-2)[edit]

You undid my edit to USS Pueblo (AGER-2), and said "According to Sea of Japan naming dispute, North Korea uses "East Sea" as well".[1] However, I cannot find it in the article. What I see is that it says "North Korea supports the name "East Sea of Korea". Sea of Japan also lists the North Korean name as "Joseon Donghae" which translates to "East Sea of Korea" or "East Korea Sea", while the South Korean name is "Donghae", which is "East Sea". --Kusunose 14:16, 23 March 2013 (UTC)

Al Sharpton [sic][edit]

Hi! Thanks for the message.

How would you feel about simply rendering the Sharpton quote in the General American that is typical on Wikipedia?

If he'd used a part of AAVE that's confusing to non-speakers I could see a point in "translating" or clarifying, but I'm fairly sure almost all native English speakers can figure out that "we was" means exactly the same thing as "we were".

If not acceptable, I must say that the use of [sic] for regional dialects does not necessarily have any negative connotations

Yeah that's true, but I don't think I've seen [sic] applied to "ain't", "y'all", or negative concord which are all "non-standard" so it seems odd to see it used for AAVE.

the AP Stylebook, for example, does recommend the use of [sic] for "peculiar usage."

AAVE isn't really "peculiar" though. It's not a dialect spoken by ten people on a remote island, it's spoken by millions of people in every part of the US.

Whatever the consensus ends up being, it's probably something that deserves to be clarified in WP:MOS or WP:QUOTE, so I may start a discussion on one of those talk pages. --holizz (talk) 03:39, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

Hi! Just thought I'd let you know I asked on WP:MOS about this usage of sic: Wikipedia_talk:Manual_of_Style#Quoting_different_dialects_of_English_to_the_one_the_article_is_written_in
--holizz (talk) 00:42, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
Well, there wasn't much in the way of a consensus on the MOS talk page. Per User:SMcCandlish's suggestion I added a hidden sic which will prevent editors from mistakenly "correcting" the quote. But if you still think it needs a visible one, I won't revert your change. :) --holizz (talk) 02:06, 11 September 2014 (UTC)

I closed your nomination for Japanese people who conserve Article 9 as speedy keep because the article is currently linked to from the main page. You can renominate the article once it is no longer linked to from the DYK section. Spirit of Eagle (talk) 02:40, 19 October 2014 (UTC)

The article is no longer on the main page, so you can renominate it at any time. Spirit of Eagle (talk) 03:13, 19 October 2014 (UTC)

Open-pit mining image[edit]

Hello Knight of Truth. I wasn't sure if you had seen my reply on the Open-pit mining Talk page, so thought I should leave a quick message here: I'm not able to get the unedited photographs for the before and after image I was suggesting for that page. However, I do have another image that could potentially be used instead. Can you look again if you have a moment? Thank you. Robert PEnergy (talk) 18:07, 12 December 2014 (UTC)

Thanks Knight of Truth for your recent assistance in placing the mining image and for your advice concerning alt image text. It's much appreciated. Robert PEnergy (talk) — Preceding undated comment added 21:09, 7 January 2015 (UTC)

Turner Diaries and Hunter by William Pierce[edit]

Can you comment on the arbitration thread concerning the above said books?GingerBreadHarlot (talk) 10:54, 4 January 2015 (UTC)

@GingerBreadHarlot: I looked for the arbitration thread you mentioned, but couldn't find it at WP:A/R. I very rarely have anything to do with the Arbitration Committee, so I'm not sure where else I'd find it. Could you link it to me? Knight of Truth (talk) 16:52, 4 January 2015 (UTC)


Good point in the discussion of BWV 22 about the typography not having to be the same when quoting, but unhappily reminding me of my problem child A Boy was Born. I would need a serious reason to change from the published typography. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 11:46, 16 January 2015 (UTC)

Infobox World's Fair[edit]

Hello Knight of Truth,

Technically it is possible to override the standard EXPO City Year format by adding 10 to the category value. A recognized Historical expo is category 0, changing it to 10 will result in displaying the name parameter as header of the infobox. The same applies to the universal and specialized expos, adding 10 to the category will display the same category but overrides the standard header.

Although I agree with you that, because the BIE treaty is in force since 1931, it could be justified to use the names as used at the time of the, before 1931, expo. However the BIE uses the name EXPO for the historical world's fairs as well. In order to make it immediately clear to the reader that the exposition is a World's Fair and not just a tradefair or hobbyclub, I prefer the use of the word EXPO for all of them, even the not recognized ones, as long as the characteristics can be qualified as world's fair.

Its up to you (and the discussion page) to change it or not.

Due to the reintroduction of the Expo-class Triennial in 2016 I'll review/reprogramm this infobox soon. So if changes are needed let me know.

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Matthew Butterick, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page JD. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
