Right. Sorry. I'll try to do better. Kolindigo 15:05, 5 September 2006 (UTC)


FYI, I nominated Battle of the Brians for DYK. Cheers, Fang Aili talk 14:31, 5 September 2006 (UTC)

Updated DYK query On 6 September, 2006, Did you know? was updated with a fact from the article Battle of the Brians, which you created. If you know of another interesting fact from a recently created article, then please suggest it on the "Did you know?" talk page.

Season years[edit]

Although having all 4 digits would be best, I noticed that in certain computer resolutions, the tables exceed the page width and are sometimes chopped off. I use firefox most of the time and I have a wide screen. When I use i.e. for instance the tables come out pretty funky. Feel free to change them if you see necessary. Thanks.


Brian Joubert[edit]

Thanks so much for putting the results in that spiffy-looking table--I was dreading doing it! --Lmblackjack21 10:52, 7 November 2006 (UTC)

Quick Note[edit]

When editing an article on Wikipedia there is a small field labeled "Edit summary" under the main edit-box. It looks like this:

Edit summary text box

The text written here will appear on the Recent changes page, in the page revision history, on the diff page, and in the watchlists of users who are watching that article. See m:Help:Edit summary for full information on this feature.

Filling in the edit summary field greatly helps your fellow contributors in understanding what you changed, so please always fill in the edit summary field, especially for big edits or when you are making subtle but important changes, like changing dates or numbers. Thank you.

Zsa Zsa Riordan[edit]

I noticed that you put a {{Notability}} flag on this article. You may not have realised that this article was recently nominated for deletion on the grounds of non-notability and there was no consensus for deletion.

British Sign language[edit]

Why did you remove this category (Category:British Sign-language films) from 4 weddings and a funeral article? The chatacter played by this actor, David Bower and even Hugh Grant use this sign language in the film, you can find information about that here [1].Gaudio 19:13, 18 January 2007 (UTC)

Well, in theory, all the movies which have even just a few sentences in a given language can be included in the category, see this article for instance The Exorcism of Emily Rose. Anyway, i think we have to make a supercategory with all the sign language films, hmmm. Gaudio 19:19, 18 January 2007 (UTC)
Well, if you see a film in Mandarin and you read the subtitles, you don't have to know that langauge either :)
As i told you, i just followed what you guys had and i haven't seen The Exorcism of Emily Rose either, but i think it is like The Exorcist, they speak in a language different from English, when they suffer xenoglossy or they have to bless or be blessed in Latin or sth like that, so they speak in those languages just for a couple of minutes, i'm afraid. You can see in the internet database, the website they used to classify by languages, they speak in lots of tongues :)[2] Gaudio 23:46, 18 January 2007 (UTC)
Hmmm, as i told you, that's enough to be in the category, i didn't chose that requisite, if you have any complaint, you can contact the author of the categorisation. And as i told you too, in that movie, that language is more represented than other languages in other films which have been categorised by this given language.Gaudio 08:46, 19 January 2007 (UTC)

New edits[edit]

That's no problem. I appreciate all the edits you do. The U.S. championships were very fun to watch this year even though Kwan and Cohen didn't participate. (I hope Lysacek wins this year). Geoboe84 01:14, 28 January 2007 (UTC)Geoboe84

Orphaned fair use image (Image:Hugh grant american dreamz 1.jpg)[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Hugh grant american dreamz 1.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable under fair use (see our fair use policy).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any fair use images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you.

Chabad Messianism[edit]

Hi there, could you please help me out I don't know what to do. I am being chased around by User:PinchasC who will not let me add a single word or link about Michichism, let alone create a separate article.

Every time I try he pulls another deceitful slight of hand, reverting endlessly, nominating good articles for AfD just to confuse people and so on and so forth.

Chabad Messianism is one of the major controversies in Judaism in the past 50 years with numerous books on the subject yet PinchasC (and co) have ensured that there can only be 1 paragraph in all wikipedia about it - which is followed by endless of the point Berger-bashing.

He nominated Controversies of Chabad-Lubavitch for AfD to create a smokescreen, when there was a clear consensus expressed that there should be a Chabad Messianism article I un-redirected it. He then redirected back again, without any debate and falsely claimed that all the info was in the other article.

How can this be resolved? I am just fighting the passionate beliefs of a few wikipedians who are preventing any serious discusion of Chabad on wikipedia by endless games. Please help.
