Tom Stone - not good enough magician for encylopaedia[edit]

Please see I have written to complain about Tom Stone. Jan Antwerpmagic 03:02, 2 January 2007 (UTC)


I see you removed a bunch of magicians from the list a year ago and I'm sure a lot of those are a good call, but I think removing people from the list requires some detailed research. For example, Hans Klok is in no way a dubious listing. There's about 4 very well known Dutch magic acts and he's one of them, and he's been a world champion in magic too if I remember correctly (at least he won a notable magic award). Remember that the point of lists is that redlinks can be included.

Hey, don't condescend about redlinks to me. I made this edit and this edit last year. All those names seem to have since been removed for some reason.
In the past, I have indeed tried to maintain that list against what I felt were dubious entries. I am happy to get input from others about my decisions. Please forgive me for being only human and making errors at times.

Do you know why names are written "surname, first name" on this list? - Mgm|(talk) 13:20, 9 January 2007 (UTC)

I have no idea. I haven't been watching that page for almost 9 months now. I don't edit much around here anymore. -- Krash (Talk) 14:46, 9 January 2007 (UTC)

Re-booting Magic WikiProject[edit]

I'm contacting you because you are listed as a participant at the Magic WikiProject. There is a draft for a new version of the main project page up for discussion and I would welcome your comments or suggestions. I wrote the draft because I was encouraged to try to do something to breathe some life back into the project and also to address some long standing problems that seem to dog it. The draft is posted at Wikipedia:WikiProject Magic/draft magic project page. Since starting to edit at Wikipedia in February I've contributed 25 new articles to the Magic project and added material to many more. I would really like to see this thing get going again but I need at least a few people to give some sign of encouragement if I am to continue.

Who Cares?[edit]

it takes a real gift for hyper-inflation of one's sense of self-importance to decide for everyone, without consensus, what is or is not important. perhaps you'd be more comfortable sticking to a blog or some such, where complete control is implicitly yours, and there aren't the annoyance of other editors who - shriek! - have opinions that differ from your own. have a scrumptious day. Anastrophe 02:44, 23 August 2007 (UTC)

Stick to the actual details of this rather than trying to insult me with your stupid college words and arrogant hall-monitor attitude. I'm not indiscriminately deleting trivia sections at random. We're dealing with uncited, irrelevant tripe that's obviously creating a problem otherwise it wouldn't be tagged as such for months on end with absolutely nothing done about it. The time to act is now. There doesn't need to be an extended discussion of turds to be polished when it's all just a load of bullshit. -- Krash (Talk) 03:15, 23 August 2007 (UTC)
