Good work. --Guinnog 06:46, 1 May 2007 (UTC)
Re: TWA flight 800
Can I get one of your spelling checks on this article? Much appreciated! Lipsticked Pig 19:57, 10 May 2007 (UTC)
- Happy to help out - I corrected what I found. Incidentally, I don't do anything too special when I'm typo fixing - I use WP:AWB for mass fixes when I'm going for speed (like trying to correct all instances of a single word). For this page I just copy and pasted the text into MS Word and let Microsoft's spell checker tell me what needed to be fixed. --Bachrach44 20:49, 10 May 2007 (UTC)
The article was placed in the correct category (Category:Unassessed Aviation accident articles), but the category wasn't created yet, I'll do that now. - Trevor MacInnis (Contribs) 01:03, 30 May 2007 (UTC)
- LOL... Also bear in mind I'm Brittish, it's one AM here (I'm a bit of a midnight mover, so after playing some metal on YouTube, it was last check of watchlist time before bed - so not as sad as it sounds!) Blood Red Sandman (Talk) (Contribs) 23:54, 2 June 2007 (UTC)

You might want to change your comment because it was the article nominator User:Rollosmokes that reverted the main articles so that they duplicate the new ones. Personally I don't think the new articles stand alone, but I'm being fair :) EliminatorJR Talk 22:31, 3 June 2007 (UTC)
Just dropping by to say "thank you" for supporting me in my recent my RfA. I passed the vote, and am now an admin. It will take me some getting used to with the new tools, but I thank you again for the trust. Have a good one, and, as always, happy editing! Jmlk17 05:01, 8 June 2007 (UTC)
Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that recently you carried out a copy and paste page move from 2007 San Francisco Airport runway incursion. Please do not move articles by copying and pasting them because it splits the article's history, which is needed for attribution and is helpful in many other ways. If there is an article that you cannot move yourself using the move link at the top of the page, follow the instructions at Wikipedia:Requested moves. Also, if there are any other articles that you copied and pasted, even if it was a long time ago, please list them at Wikipedia:Cut and paste move repair holding pen. Thank you.

- Hi Lipsticked Pig (great name!) Good job catching and fixing that quickly. I redirected 2007 San Francisco Airport runway incursion, where you first moved the article, to the new article name. Cheers, Flyguy649 talk contribs 06:18, 10 July 2007 (UTC)
AfD nomination of TWA Flight 800 alternative theories
An article that you have been involved in editing, TWA Flight 800 alternative theories, has been listed for deletion. If you are interested in the deletion discussion, please participate by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/TWA Flight 800 alternative theories. Thank you. I know you created this page yesterday, but I'm nominating it for deletion. I fear it is giving the conspiracy advocates a soapbox. Fighting for Justice 01:57, 6 September 2007 (UTC)
Pre-Meiji Period: Use of Japanese era name in identifying disastrous events
Would you consider making a contribution to an exchange of views at either of the following:
As you know, Wikipedia:WikiProject Disaster management came up with entirely reasonable guidelines for naming articles about earthquakes, fires, typhoons, etc. However, the <<year>><<place> <<event>> format leaves no opportunity for conventional nengō which have been used in Japan since the eighth century (701-1945) -- as in "the Great Fire of Meireki" (1657) or for "the Hōei eruption of Mount Fuji" (1707).
In a purely intellectual sense, I do look forward to discovering how this exchange of views will develop; but I also have an ulterior motive. I hope to learn something about how better to argue in favor of a non-standard exception to conventional, consensus-driven, and ordinarily helpful wiki-standards such as this one. In my view, there does need to be some modest variation in the conventional paradigms for historical terms which have evolved in non-Western cultures -- no less in Wikipedia than elsewhere. I'm persuaded that, at least in the context of Japanese history before the reign of Emperor Meiji (1868-1912), some non-standard variations seem essential; but I'm not sure how best to present my reasoning to those who don't already agree with me. I know these first steps are inevitably awkward; but there you have it.
The newly-created 1703 Genroku earthquake article pushed just the right buttons for me. Obviously, these are questions that I'd been pondering for some time; and this became a convenient opportunity to move forward in a process of building a new kind of evolving consensus. --Ooperhoofd (talk) 18:18, 13 December 2007 (UTC)
An exciting opportunity to get involved!
As a member of the Aviation WikiProject or one of its subprojects, you may be interested in testing your skills in the Aviation Contest! I created this contest, not to pit editor against editor, but to promote article improvement and project participation and camraderie. Hopefully you will agree with its usefulness. Sign up here, read up on the rules here, and discuss the contest here. The first round of the contest may not start until September 1st-unless a large number of editors signup and are ready to compete immediately! Since this contest is just beginning, please give feedback here, or let me know what you think on my talkpage. - Trevor MacInnis contribs 23:01, 22 August 2009 (UTC)
You're welcome :-) The latter. I follow the MOS on things like variety of English--US, UK, or whatever should suit the topic of the article or the convention previously used in the article, but most importantly should be consistent--but that's basically common sense, and basically I just fix what I see and make things a clearer if I can see a way to do so.

Hey there Lipsticked Pig, thank you for your contributions! I am a bot alerting you that Non-free files are not allowed in the user or talk-space. I removed some files that I found on User talk:Lipsticked Pig/Sandbox. In the future, please refrain from adding fair-use files to your user-space drafts or your talk page.

I am reviewing your EL edits to TWA Flight 800
- Removing NTSB links - I am immediately restoring those. Lipstick, no matter how many times that document is linked to as a source, it must be in the External links section at all costs. The investigation reports are so important to the article that they must be prominent in the external links section.
- Also any press releases released by the airline must be in the external links section. That one document that you called "not notable" is the only thing written by TWA that was archived on web.archive.org, so it will be kept.
- I am reviewing the Navy and FBI links. When I checked them, they worked. I will look over them and post results to this talk page. WhisperToMe (talk) 05:12, 4 July 2010 (UTC)
On behalf of WP:CHICAGO, thanks for the editorial contributions.
