Houston Rockets seasons[edit]

Thank you for updating the page. Cheers, Basketball110 the pages I've messed up completely 05:45, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

No problem. I actually try to update the records of all of the teams in the NBA when I have the opportunity. -- Luke4545 (talk) 05:50, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

Jimmy Rollins page[edit]

Yes, I know that the info was posted without source. As a member of the Phillies WikiProject, that article is on our list to acquire sources and so I wanted to make sure that particular information didn't go by the wayside because it had been removed, so I went digging for a source last night. Thanks. Killervogel5 (talk) 11:04, 9 April 2008 (UTC)

Edits from Banned User HC and IPs[edit]

Warning Wikipedia's banning policy states that "Any edits made in defiance of a ban may be reverted to enforce the ban, regardless of the merits of the edits themselves. As the banned user is not authorized to make those edits, there is no need to discuss them prior to reversion."

1) HarveyCarter (talk · contribs) and all of his sockpuppets are EXPRESSLY banned for life.

2) Be on the look out for any edits from these IP addresses:

AOL NetRange: 92.8.0.0 - 92.225.255.255
AOL NetRange: 172.128.0.0 - 172.209.255.255

Thanks! ~ IP4240207xx (talk) 06:05, 5 May 2008 (UTC)

May 2008[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Catherine Deneuve. Note that the three-revert rule prohibits making more than three reversions on a single page within a 24 hour period. Additionally, users who perform a large number of reversions in content disputes may be blocked for edit warring, even if they do not technically violate the three-revert rule. If you continue, you may be blocked from editing. Please do not repeatedly revert edits, but use the talk page to work towards wording and content that gains a consensus among editors. If necessary, pursue dispute resolution. You have violated the three-revert rule. Consider dispute resolution, but do not continuously revert. PeterSymonds (talk) 07:09, 16 May 2008 (UTC)

First of all, I don't see how I violated 3RR when the rule clearly states that "an editor must not perform more than three reverts, in whole or in part, on a single page within a 24-hour period." The key word there is "more." I did not perform more than three reverts on the Catherine Deneuve article within a 24-hour period. Please check the revision history again.
Secondly, as I said in the requests for page protection article, I urged the person behind the IP to engage fully in discussions BEFORE going through with any full-scale edits; however, the user continuously made those unconstructive/unnecessary full-scale edits without waiting until any conclusions/compromises were laid out. I think this is extremely important to understand as to the reasoning behind why I made those reversions. There was a similar situation that occurred a couple of months ago between me and another user in the same Catherine Deneuve article, and the administrators that handled that situation seemed to factor in that concept; thus, 3RR-based blocks were not issued following cases that were filed. I'm not saying that every single administrator should act the same way, but I think this is significant to note. Once semi-protection was granted in the previous situation, that other user finally engaged in full discussions, and a constructive resolution was soon reached. That's what I was hoping for in this situation as well. I hope you'll now understand where I'm coming from. Thanks. -- Luke4545 (talk) 11:48, 16 May 2008 (UTC)
I understand, but I'm not clear about what the discussion is based on in general. Thank you for not making further edits to the article (I said on the IP's talk page that you'd both done it, but that was a typo). My suggestion is now to get over to the talk page and discuss, as I've told the IP. I will give two days of discussion, monitored by me, and if you fail to agree after then, then a request for comment will be opened. This just means that other editors will be able to comment on both arguments, and hopefully consensus will be clear about which it should be. Thanks again for not letting me down. Best, PeterSymonds (talk) 00:11, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

RfC opened[edit]

I've opened the RfC on the talk page. Please add further (brief outlines) if needed. If I'm in error as to the subject of the dispute, feel free to change it. I'm off to bed now. :) I'll watch tomorrow. PeterSymonds (talk) 23:31, 21 May 2008 (UTC)

Please read my comments, and leave a message on my talk page if you need further assistance. Shalom (HelloPeace) 01:44, 28 May 2008 (UTC)

I read your message. I'm not an administrator, but if things are the way you say they are, that would be valid grounds for semi-protection. Shalom (HelloPeace) 17:08, 28 May 2008 (UTC)

Revision to Aurora, CO[edit]

Hi, I noticed you undid my revision to the Aurora, CO's "Education" section. Could you please explain what is "unconstructive/unnecessary" about my edit? What value do the organizations under the "Education" section provide to the article that Columbia College does not? Thanks. Columbiacollege.prm (talk) 14:56, 10 June 2008 (UTC)

Those schools are based in Aurora, Colorado, which is not the case for Columbia College. I know there's a related campus in Aurora, but as I said, Columbia College isn't actually based in Aurora. Virtually every single "Education" section (at least from what I've seen), in the various city pages on Wikipedia, only include schools that are actually based in that city. I'm assuming that the reasoning behind this is that there are many schools that have related campuses located in cities across the country and including them all would just be a rather tedious and unnecessary task. If you really feel that Columbia College should be included, then I suggest discussing that in the WikiProject Cities discussion page to see what others think, too. As I said, though, judging from the content of the "Education" sections in all of the city articles I've seen, only schools that are actually based in those cities are included. -- Luke4545 (talk) 15:58, 10 June 2008 (UTC)

Fellini and Masina[edit]

Hi! Grace to your edit explanations, I now realise that the infobox "spouse" entry refers to years married. Having rinsed the egg off my face, I just wanted to say thanks and best wishes. --Jumbolino 14:25, 19 September 2008 (UTC)

Haha, no problem. Take care. -- Luke4545 (talk) 01:58, 20 September 2008 (UTC)

Blocks[edit]

Actually for blocks the only reliable info is the block log as admins may forget to put a notice and blocked accounts can still edit their own talk pages. E.g you can see when Wikitestor was blocked at [[1]]. Anywyas, it is indeed sad if things go that far. --Tikiwont (talk) 06:59, 25 October 2008 (UTC)

Good work![edit]

Hi, just wanted to thank you for your help fighting vandalism while Joe Sakic was on the main page, noticed that you had reverted many edits on my watchlist. Regards! —Krm500 (Communicate!) 00:08, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

Yeah, there was definitely a ton of vandalism on that article. Anyway, thanks for the message! -- Luke4545 (talk) 01:04, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

NFL lore inquiry[edit]

Thanks, Luke, I just wanted to know why that wasn't counted as lore. And by the way, I'm sorry about Mike Shanahan being fired. He was, I admit, a great coach. And, how do you get those icons that show like,this user is male?- Bobmonkey7 —Preceding unsigned comment added by Bobmonkey77 (talkcontribs) 22:51, 2 January 2009 (UTC)

Brandon Marshall[edit]

Hey sorry for taking away the honors and milestone section away, I shouldn't have. I just believe that some awards and honors should be in the infobox like his Pro Bowl selection. By the way I like the information that you added for the milestone section. Thanks --Phbasketball6 (talk) 04:21, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

No worries. I can understand where you're coming from. Anyway, I hope to one day get the Brandon Marshall page up to Featured article status, as I've been doing a lot of work on that article. -- Luke4545 (talk) 11:08, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

Thanks![edit]

Well, thank you for the barnstar! I just try to keep plugging along, but a little recognition is nice! I appreciate it. KV5Squawk boxFight on! 20:19, 6 January 2009 (UTC)

Hi Luke4545 - let me also add my thanks. It was such a welcome surprise to find on my page. I appreciate that you took the time to spread some positive thoughts. Very generous and thoughtful of you. Rossrs (talk) 13:20, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

Thanks. You've done a lot of good work! Take care. -- Luke4545 (talk) 13:50, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

The Barnstar of Good Humor[edit]

Barnstar of Humour3.png The Barnstar of Good Humor
You deserve this because when I first became a member of Wikipedia I didn't know how to do anything and you helped me become the Wikipedian I am today, with a lot of good humor.Bobmonkey77 (talk) 18:16, 13 January 2009 (UTC)

Rollback[edit]

I have granted rollback rights to your account; the reason for this is that after a review of some of your contributions, I believe I can trust you to use rollback correctly by using it for its intended usage of reverting vandalism, and that you will not abuse it by reverting good-faith edits or to revert-war. For information on rollback, see Wikipedia:New admin school/Rollback and Wikipedia:Rollback feature. If you do not want rollback, just let me know, and I'll remove it. Good luck and thanks. GlassCobra 21:30, 18 February 2009 (UTC)

Yes, I notice your detailed edit summaries often, and have been impressed with them. This'll just speed up the process for particularly bad vandalism. :) GlassCobra 00:28, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

Infobox NFL retired[edit]

I reverted your reverting of an IP on the Bill Romanowski article. There's been a consensus to switch all retired players over to the infobox NFL active so they can eventually get rid of the obsolete infobox NFL retired. RF23 (talk) 19:14, 7 May 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 05:10, 15 November 2010 (UTC)

WikiProject Colorado[edit]

It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
