British National (Overseas)
Hi. I want to thank you for this, but could I persuade you to change all citations to that new format? Changing just a random selection places a burden on the other editors to change the rest, and I frankly find that more tiresome than reverting your edit. Please see my point. Dahn (talk) 13:14, 29 June 2014 (UTC)
- Sure, I'll do that. I probably ran out of time or got tired. Hey, someone's gotta do that tiresome stuff, right? :) --LilHelpa (talk) 16:06, 29 June 2014 (UTC)
Many thanks. Help still needed
Hello, thank you for your work on the Williams Carmona article. I am trying to de-orphan it, I was wondering if you could help me with that, as I am new to this. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 20:21, 2 July 2014 (UTC)
- Done. You're welcome.
Temperature in Kelvin
I noticed that you changed "K" to "°K" in this edit. I'd like to let you know that, unlike °C, the temperature unit Kelvin is never combined with a degrees sign. Also, in proper spoken language "degrees Kelvin" is not used. --JorisvS (talk) 18:32, 20 October 2014 (UTC)
- Ah. Thanks for letting me know. I was uneasy about that one and had a feeling I should have left it alone. LilHelpa (talk) 18:35, 20 October 2014 (UTC)
Hello. Thank you for your correction to mālāsana but unfortunately, because of my own syntax errors you mistook my use of "a" to be the indefinite article instead of a reference to the letter used in the spelling of mālāsana (as 'ā' instead of 'a'). I've changed it back from "an" to "a" and put half quotes around it to avoid this confusion in the future. I'd imagine it's more intelligible now and I wouldn't have noticed the ambiguity if not for your correction, so thanks.Iṣṭa Devata (talk) 02:49, 2 November 2014 (UTC)
It's to it is
I'm not sure where the manual of style on contractions, Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Abbreviations, states that we shouldn't use contractions in prose. Perhaps you could show me. Walter Görlitz (talk) 21:33, 21 December 2014 (UTC)
- Re: your message on my talk page, I can quickly reference MOS:CONTRACTION, but I'm not sure how you are defining "prose". Generally speaking I try to avoid expanding contractions in things like articles recapping episodes of shows, etc. My understanding of this issue is based on another MOS section indicating that contractions 1) do not sound encyclopedic and 2) are less clear in meaning. - LilHelpa (talk) 21:43, 21 December 2014 (UTC)
- See also MOS:ABBR from which I quote: "A contraction is an abbreviation of one or more words that has some or all of the middle letters removed but retains the first and final letters (e.g. Mr and aren't). Missing letters are replaced by an apostrophe in multiple-word contractions. Multiple-word contractions should not be used . . . " (italics mine) -LilHelpa (talk) 21:53, 21 December 2014 (UTC)
Some falafel for you!
|you might be hungry Bettifm (talk) 00:38, 18 January 2015 (UTC)|
|Thank you for your touch-ups in the Garage rock article. I appreciate them very much. Garagepunk66 (talk) 22:55, 8 September 2015 (UTC)|
Web to Book
|The Working Man's Barnstar|
|I've noticed that you've reviewed a lot of my articles, which is a pretty thankless task, so I reckon you deserve a barnstar! Thanks for the hard work! Alarichall (talk) 16:15, 17 December 2015 (UTC)|
Fixing my systematic typo
Dear LilHelpa, I'd like to apologize and thank you at the same time for all the copy-edit you did on articles containing my systematic typo "caculated". It's quite "amazing" I never noticed this mistake in the template I used so many times. I will fix that now. Thx, Rfassbind – talk 23:24, 10 January 2016 (UTC)
- Please take a look at the article about Lisa Aschan that I have created. Any help is appreciated as always. Regards,--BabbaQ (talk) 15:47, 23 January 2016 (UTC)
DYK for Jonas Åkerlund (politician)
|On 29 January 2016, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Jonas Åkerlund (politician), which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that Sweden Democrat Jonas Åkerlund called immigrants "parasites" during a broadcast on his party's radio station in 2002? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Jonas Åkerlund (politician). You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, daily totals), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.|
Revert in Goldenseal
Hello, this is to let you know I reverted part of your edit in Goldenseal. Alterative is not a misspelling of alternative at all, and the only thing you needed to do is to follow the link to Wiktionary. Regards, Dwergenpaartje (talk) 12:26, 13 February 2016 (UTC)
- (talk page stalker) @Johnbod: I've logged this at Phabricator. As a workaround, I've made an edit at Art of Mesopotamia that should stop this happening again. -- John of Reading (talk) 07:27, 17 February 2016 (UTC)
- Thanks for the heads-up, @Johnbod: and thanks again, Sir John of Reading. --LilHelpa (talk) 12:14, 17 February 2016 (UTC)

no. 29 of Precious,
a prize of QAI!
- Time flies! I think of you often... but bury myself in our important work with what time I can spare. Best regards --LilHelpa (talk) 12:12, 19 February 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for your typo fixes. But inserting a comma after "Accordingly" didn't fix the sentence; in fact, it made it worse. In the process of translating the substance of this article from another language, probably Portuguese (see my previous long string of edits), the anonymous editor made numerous non-native errors, and this was one of them. "Accordingly with" should have been "According to", and that's what I've done with it. Thnidu (talk) 16:10, 14 April 2016 (UTC)
A Fan For You!
Spidersmilk has given you a Fan! Fans are good for two reasons: They blow air and allow hot wikipedians to cool off, and also cheer them on when they need it, Just like a fan of a football or basketball team. Cool off, and enjoy the cheering and the breeze. Hopefully this one has made your day better. You can spread "WikiLove" and "wikicheers" by giving someone else some a fan, whether it be someone you have had disagreements with in the past, a good friend, or someone who just needs a some fan to cheer them on and/or a good, refreshing breeze.
16 July 2016 thank you

Thanks for your edits to Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum theft. Just wanted to let you know that you incorrectly replaced an Italian last name, "Guarante" with the word "Guarantee". I have undid that change. Thanks. TarkusAB 16:36, 17 July 2016 (UTC)
