Removed speedy deletion tag: MWH Global[edit]

Hi Lord Pistachio! I just wanted to inform you that I removed the speedy deletion tag you placed on MWH Global- because: Article can be fixed; it is better to just remove the advertising content than delete the article entirely. If you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact me. decltype (talk) 05:58, 16 June 2009 (UTC)

Indiana State Road 135[edit]

In reference to the undoing of my addition: Isn't it still worth mentioning what I said, since it's still the same road? Is that not relevant? Even just between Co. Line and 465, it's still considered "Meridian Street" as much as it is "State Road 135". Thoughts? Gpia7r (talk) 19:35, 24 June 2009 (UTC)

Geez[edit]

I'M NOT VANDALIZING THE PAGE I'M JUST ADDING KNOWLEDGE TO IT. ARE YOU ON SOME SORT OF POWER TRIP? GOD IS PREVENTING MY FREE SPEECH ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IN YOUR FREE TIME?

I DID NOT VANDALIZE ANY PAGE. HOW CAN YOU VANDALIZE A PAGE THAT HAS NO CONTENT IN THE FIRST PLACE? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 173.73.27.17 (talk) 17:58, 6 July 2009 (UTC)

I have deleted the article Exnihilation. It is not a real word, and not a common misspelling. There is no need for the article. DJ Clayworth (talk) 18:04, 6 July 2009 (UTC)

Frank Vaulttackie[edit]

Hello sir, Frank Vaulttackie is an important internet phenomenon, a prank caller you may call him. Many people know about Vaulttackie and the article is not pointless. I can assure you. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Alecv123 (talkcontribs) 23:39, 8 July 2009 (UTC)

Nice work re Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Cricket[edit]

I have now dealt with that editor. I appreciate your assistance in reverting his vandalism of the talk page concerned. Best wishes.--VS talk 05:11, 9 July 2009 (UTC)

Two in a row![edit]

You, my friend, have reverted two of my unconstructive edits (to the articles toothpaste and Barney Frank, respectively) in a row. Kudos!

Because of your dual actions at outsmarting me, I pledge to you that I will now leave Wikipedia and engage in some sort of other activity on the Internet. You will not hear from me again, and, once again, my sincerest congratulations to you.

Regards,

Edits to Safety Management Systems[edit]

Oops! Looks like someone from an Australian IP address made those initial changes then the account went back and undid them... Weird. Sorry about that :) Moogle10000 06:39, 14 April 2010 (UTC)

Chris Sellors Article[edit]

Just letting you know I changed the tag on this article. I thought db-bio was more accurate than db-spam, especially since the article creator was the subject. Thanks. Eggishorn (talk) 06:32, 18 May 2010 (UTC)

  • Fine by me. I think either one works. --LP talk 06:34, 18 May 2010 (UTC)

Micheal Buble etc[edit]

I thought the Buble thing would help people pronounce his name; I do not understand all those symbols. Please could you confirm you agree with my changes and I will undo your "edit".

Someone seems to have put some offensive materials in the National Lottery page under my username. How can this be? Thank you for removing these. Please reply me soon.

Thanks[edit]

For the revert on my user page. The IP editor is a sockpuppet for a spammer whose site I got blacklisted, I've already reported him as such. Ian.thomson (talk)

Re:Recycling Photos[edit]

Well, I'm placing them there because it's either there or in irrelevant text. I COULD make a recycling section to that article but I'm not sure how much there would be to write for a single photo. So to make it simplier I just add it to a gallery where later other photos may be added to fill it up. On the Slovenia one, the photo didn't have a exact location, so I just added it to the country. EDIT: Hmm, I see your point now, to not add something so trivial to an entire country. Okay, my apologies. SwisterTwister (talk) 22:06, 2 June 2010 (UTC)

So from reading your latest reply, what you're saying is not only off-limits on countries but cities as well? SwisterTwister (talk) 22:14, 2 June 2010 (UTC)

Okay, for a second there I thought you also meant cities as well. Well, in the future I will only post photos that have a specific location, thanks for explaining it to me! SwisterTwister (talk) 22:24, 2 June 2010 (UTC)

Jaron Pitts[edit]

If a man created a fan trailer and it caught the internet on fire, should he not have credit? You sir, make me sad. esmith747 —Preceding undated comment added 19:08, 3 June 2010 (UTC).

More recycling photos[edit]

Hi. I have been trying to explain to SwisterTwister (talk · contribs) that adding images of recycling bins is unhelpful, as is trawling through Commons and adding barely relevant images to random articles. In the course of this, I have quoted what you have said to this user, but would like to make sure I have not misunderstood your words. If you would like to, please take a look at the discussion.

Speedy Deletion Converted to PROD: List of songs that frequently use the word "ye"[edit]

Hello Lord Pistachio, and thanks for your work patrolling new changes. I am just informing you that I have changed a page you tagged (List of songs that frequently use the word "ye") from being tagged for speedy deletion to being tagged for proposed deletion. The speedy deletion criteria are very narrow to protect the encyclopedia, and do not fit the page in question. Please review the criteria for speedy deletion before tagging further pages. If you have any questions or problems, please let me know. Thanks again! decltype (talk) 09:45, 29 June 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion declined: Stamped asphalt[edit]

Hello Lord Pistachio, and thanks for patrolling new pages! I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of Stamped asphalt, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: Not unambiguously promotional. You may wish to review the Criteria for Speedy Deletion before tagging further pages. Thank you. Dabomb87 (talk) 23:17, 14 September 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion converted to PROD: JCI Reading[edit]

Hello Lord Pistachio, and thanks for patrolling new pages! I am just letting you know that I have converted the speedy deletion tag that you placed on JCI Reading to a proposed deletion tag. The speedy deletion criteria are extremely narrow to protect the encyclopedia, and do not fit the page in question. You may wish to review the Criteria for Speedy Deletion before tagging further pages. Thank you. Wifione ....... Leave a message 17:00, 24 September 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion concerning cassius (Robot)[edit]

Hello lord Pistachio, could i ask if links were included the article could be re-done?Mustardwilleywandererscc (talk) 11:05, 3 October 2010 (UTC)

As with any subject, WP:Notability determines whether it should have an article. You should not recreate the article unless you include multiple third-party sources that show notability. I think that's what you were asking; if that didn't answer your question, let me know. --LordPistachio talk 16:49, 3 October 2010 (UTC)

You are now a Reviewer[edit]

Wikipedia Reviewer.svg

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged revisions, underwent a two-month trial which ended on 15 August 2010. Its continued use is still being discussed by the community, you are free to participate in such discussions. Many articles still have pending changes protection applied, however, and the ability to review pending changes continues to be of use.

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under level 1 pending changes and edits made by non-reviewers to level 2 pending changes protected articles (usually high traffic articles). Pending changes was applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial. The list of articles with pending changes awaiting review is located at Special:OldReviewedPages.

For the guideline on reviewing, see Wikipedia:Reviewing. Being granted reviewer rights doesn't grant you status nor change how you can edit articles even with pending changes. The general help page on pending changes can be found here, and the general policy for the trial can be found here.

If you do not want this user right, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles 05:12, 15 November 2010 (UTC)

Capitalization[edit]

Greetings! With this recent edit you changed "counties" to "Counties" in cases like "Jackson and Jefferson counties". I had understood that in this situation, the word "counties" should not be capitalized, but I have not found anything definitive in the Wikipedia Manual of Style and am checking other sources; however, I was wondering how you made a decision on this. It is an issue that has been discussed before, and there were points made on both sides... Thanks! Omnedon (talk) 19:23, 29 November 2010 (UTC)

  • It seemed to me that "Counties" should be capitalized as a proper noun. If that's not correct, feel free to change it back. I won't argue. --LordPistachio talk 20:49, 29 November 2010 (UTC)
    • Well, it's one of those issues where I can see both sides. If I can find something definitive on this, I'll let you know. Thanks. Omnedon (talk) 23:34, 29 November 2010 (UTC)
      • Just stalking by to provide some clarification. In the context of the edit, both are correct, depending on the intent of the author. The capitalized "County" refers to the government entity or (constitutional body), while the lowercase "county" refers to geographical land mass within established boundaries. As an example, the state of Washington refers to the northwestern state in the United States. The State of Washington refers to the governmental, constitutional body that manages affairs within the state of Washington. "Formed from Jackson and Jefferson Counties" indicates that two governmental entities consolidated their resources to form a new government. "Formed from Jackson and Jefferson counties" indicates the consolidation of two geographical areas. In the context of Jennings County, the capital "C" would be appropriate due to the consolidation of the governmental, constitutional bodies of Jackson and Jefferson. Hope this helps.

Butler University - Disciples of Christ[edit]

I noticed you reverted my change on the Butler page. I changed the line from "Butler University was founded by members of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)" to "Butler University was founded by members of the Disciples of Christ". This change had been discussed for several weeks in the discussion area. The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) may have descended from the Disciples of Christ but when the school was founded the current Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) denomination did not exist. It was not formed until 1968. When the school was founded it was church was known simply as the Disciples of Christ and from a historical viewpoint is much more accurate statement.

Would you explain the reason for the reversion? Thank You Llorracsemaj (talk) 00:04, 8 March 2011 (UTC) LLorracsemaj

I have added additional documentation to the Discussion area supporting my change. Please do not revert without documenting the justification. Thank You Llorracsemaj (talk) 13:07, 12 March 2011 (UTC)

New deal for page patrollers[edit]

Hi Lord Pistachio,

In order to better control the quality of new pages, keep out the spam, and welcome the genuine newbies, the current system we introduced in 2011 is being updated and improved. The documentation and tutorials have also been revised and given a facelift. Most importantly a new user group New Page Reviewer has been created.

Under the new rule, you may find that you are temporarily unable to mark new pages as reviewed. However, this is nothing to worry about - most current experienced patrollers are being accorded the the new right without the need to apply, and if you have significant previous experience of patrolling new pages, we strongly encourage you to apply for the new right as soon as possible - we need all the help we can get, and we are now providing a dynamic, supportive environment for your work.

Find out more about this exiting new user right now at New Page Reviewers and be sure to read the new tutorial before applying. MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 04:29, 13 November 2016 (UTC)
