TS1000 entry[edit]

Hi, thanks for starting the TS1000 article! Since Wikipedia's Page history feature records time/name stamps, I removed your stamp from the text. A click at the article's Page history link (left margin or above/below the article) reveals all, incl diffs. --Wernher 10:06, 26 Feb 2004 (UTC)

Thanks for the comments! I've amended it slightly to make links point to more useful places. Liam Proven 00:31, 30 Mar 2004 (UTC)

OT[edit]

Good to see you finally use your userinfo page - your link has been red on my page for too long :) sheridan 20:21, 2004 Dec 23 (UTC) - Ta! I actually never noticed it before... Then only when bored decided to put something there! :¬) Liam Proven 21:03, 26 Dec 2004 (UTC)

Nuvola apps important.svg Please stop. If you continue to vandalize Wikipedia, as you did to Eva Green, you will be blocked from editing. --Yamla 15:48, 7 May 2007 (UTC)

I object in the strongest possible terms to the accusation of vandalism. I carefully edited the page to use an image already in use on another Wikipedia page; how is that vandalism? If the image is suitable for use on one page, why is it not suitable for use on another? I am not interested in your dedication to Wikipedia, if you fling insults like this at established editors/contributors, you are destroying the very collaborative institution of Wikipedia itself. Furthermore, if you are so concerned about rights and legal issues, then why do you not identify yourself and instead hide behind a pseudonym? Liam Proven 17:33, 7 May 2007 (UTC)
Your edit here specifically removed a warning that stated you were to read WP:FUC before adding an image there. It noted that promotional images and Casino Royale screenshots were inappropriate and would result in an immediate block. You specifically removed that warning and replaced it with a promotional image from Casino Royale. It is hard to imagine this was anything other than a deliberate violation of our fair-use policy. Your personal attacks are in violation of WP:NPA and if they continue, you will be blocked. --Yamla 13:54, 11 May 2007 (UTC)

OpenDOS[edit]

A {{prod}} template has been added to the article OpenDOS, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice explains why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may contest the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page. Also, please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached. If you endorse deletion of the article, and you are the only person who has made substantial edits to the page, please tag it with {{db-author}}. Whispering 17:20, 18 August 2007 (UTC)

Non-PC compatible x86 computers[edit]

Regarding Non-PC compatible x86 computers, which was deleted, (or is it Non-PC compatible X86 computers?)... have you tried an undeletion request? --Trevj (talk) 14:45, 9 May 2011 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification[edit]

Hi. In West African Lungfish, you recently added a link to the disambiguation page Posterior (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Overlinking[edit]

Hi Lproven. Please can you be more conservative with your linking (see WP:OVERLINK)? In Lord Howe Island you linked quite a few very common English words, which is beyond what our style guides suggest. I took a look at some of your other contribs, and it seems you may not be aware of this guide. --99of9 (talk) 01:10, 1 March 2012 (UTC)

And as a result I see that you have removed all of my edits, AFAICT, such as the link to the LHISI on the obscure word "phasmid" which most people would not know. That is it - the last straw. I have had enough. I am sick of being queried. I have been called a vandal, long, well-researched articles have been deleted and now my contributions are being questioned repeatedly. I stopped writing original content for WP years ago after being called a vandal; now simple copy-editing is being undone. Sod this for a game of soldiers. I am extremely offended and angered by this. I am resigning from editing wikipedia forthwith. Liam Proven (talk) 12:29, 2 March 2012 (UTC)
Hi! I've not researched the articles in question but I'm sure this'd be a great shame. I understand that one of the Wikimedia Foundation's goals is to retain editors. If you'd please hang around a few days longer to reconsider, there may be some further advice to be offered. Have a nice weekend anyway! Cheers. -- Trevj (talk) 14:29, 2 March 2012 (UTC)
PS A search has found something which may be of interest, and I expect there are policies and channels here too if you'd like to take up issues with others. I'll continue to have a further look aorund and post again over the coming days. -- Trevj (talk) 14:46, 2 March 2012 (UTC)
Hi Liam, I'm sorry you feel this way, but I think you have misread what I did and said. Firstly, I am certainly not calling you a vandal, I am simply asking you to be more conservative with wikilinking. I have no doubt you did it in good faith. Surely it's ok to "query"? This is a collaborative wiki after all, and the links I removed seemed to me to be inconsistent with the style guide WP:OVERLINK. What would you prefer me to have done? Secondly, I did not remove all of your edit, in fact I kept the exact example (phasmid) that you refer to. The net result of our edits shows that I have retained your non-common words content. Please reconsider your reaction, I certainly have no intention to drive you away. --99of9 (talk) 22:51, 2 March 2012 (UTC)

Novell DOS[edit]

If it's of any interest, I've found some additional sources and recreated Novell DOS. You may be legitimately sceptical about the longevity of that page but hopeully will feel like keeping an eye on it every now and then for a few months. -- Trevj (talk) 14:00, 4 March 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for September 24[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited CGOL, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Algebraic notation (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
