A kitten for you!
Most appreciated !!!
Maile, thank you for mentioning N14. I was pretty sure I'd seen somewhere back when I was starting that prep set builders were supposed to recheck the nominations they were about to promote to be sure everything was okay with them, but never was able to find it again. Good to know it's out there in black and white. BlueMoonset (talk) 21:21, 23 October 2015 (UTC)
Maile, when you first responded to this review, what you responded to read very differently from what it does now; the original text was expanded and revised extensively the following week, though the sig date was not changed.
It's entirely up to you, but if you'd like me to restore the original review—I'd retain the current version and move it to where it would go chronologically. If, on the other hand, you're sick of the whole matter and don't much care—the history will always be there should someone wonder—I'm happy to leave it as is. Please let me know your wishes in this matter. Thanks, and sorry to bother you. BlueMoonset (talk) 04:00, 26 October 2015 (UTC)
- @BlueMoonset: First, let me set the record straight here. Anything you post here, or anywhere else, is not a bother to me personally. I've been meaning to tell you this, but I have long considered you an editor par excellence here at Wikipedia. You've always had good instincts and understanding of the structure of Wikipedia, and what works within that structure to make an article better. I'm not exactly sure what you're saying about this review, so I'd say I want you to do whatever you believe to be the best for Wikipedia. I know you'll do the right thing, because you always do. I have taken all the DYK pages off my watchlist, and removed "Mentions" from my notifications options. Rise above and move forward to make Wikipedia better. If you or any of the old regular DYK editors want me, post here. — Maile (talk) 12:42, 26 October 2015 (UTC)
- Maile, I hope I'm misunderstanding you, because it reads as if you've left DYK, and I hope that's not true. On the other hand, I wouldn't wish the current DYK environment on anyone, much less valued colleagues, and I rather doubt I can stand up to the stress myself over the long haul. Best of luck in your future Wikipedia endeavors and those outside Wikipedia, wherever they take you. Thank you for the kind words, and for all that you've done for DYK. BlueMoonset (talk) 23:31, 26 October 2015 (UTC)
- @BlueMoonset: Your talk page is being trolled, and so is mine. That aside, you misunderstood. I currently choose not to utilize my time bothering with a situation manipulated solely for the attention it generates. When DYK goes through periods of emotionally needy disruptiveness, DYK drops off my watchlist until it passes, however long that takes. This is not the first time. When I look back at what the project, and you and I, have survived, what's going on now is just kind of pitiful in its way. This too shall pass, and the good DYK editors will come back. Until then, I'm around. — Maile (talk) 00:11, 27 October 2015 (UTC)
Garlin Murl Conner
- That's amazing. When it comes to MoH for anyone, I don't think there should be "you waited too long to file" for anyone. — Maile (talk) 23:10, 5 November 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for your contributions and even better the colloboration (you are credited at DYK) You added useful stuff including a bit "and they served in the Springfield Portuguese Presbysterian Church 1853–1854 in Springfield, Illinois" which I have found some extra detail background about (and a pic). However I don't have access to the source for that key fact (the ODNB says they "visited") and it interferes with them being in Britain in the winter of 53. Could you help sort it out? Victuallers (talk) 13:09, 7 November 2015 (UTC)
- @Victuallers:, I had a typo on the date. But I also added other information. Did I catch everything, or is there something else you need on this? — Maile (talk) 14:20, 7 November 2015 (UTC)
