The IP in question appears to be a Web filter operated by MessageLabs, as such it is likely to be shared. I'll go ahead and WP:AGF, but would caution against violating nay policies. Q T C 04:28, 24 June 2009 (UTC)

Stark[edit]

Thanks for adding details to Arthur Stark. If you ever happen to find any additional information on the Woodward brothers, it would likewise be much valued. JMK (talk) 22:41, 23 September 2009 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Thomas Knox-Shaw[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Thomas Knox-Shaw has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

A search for references failed to find significant coverage in reliable sources to comply with notability requirements. This included web searches for news coverage, books, and journals, which can be seen from the following links:
Thomas Knox-Shawnews, books, scholar
Consequently, this article is about a subject that appears to lack sufficient notability.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{dated prod}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. The speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. MegaSloth (talk) 01:55, 14 January 2010 (UTC)

I've rescued it from deletion and started to improve it, but more sources and WP:TONE changes would be welcome. - Fayenatic (talk) 21:33, 15 January 2010 (UTC)

December 2010[edit]

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Kevin Rudd‎‎. Users who edit disruptively or refuse to collaborate with others may be blocked if they continue. In particular the three-revert rule states that making more than three reversions on a single page within a 24-hour period is almost always grounds for an immediate block. If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the talk page to discuss controversial changes. Work towards wording and content that gains consensus among editors. If unsuccessful, then do not edit war even if you believe you are right. Post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If edit warring continues, you may be blocked from editing without further notice.   -- Lear's Fool 11:33, 9 December 2010 (UTC)

Copyright[edit]

Hi there. I noticed two edits in which you have inserted material into an article that is a word-for-word copy of a news source:

Please be aware that attributing content to a source is not enough to avoid copyright violations and plagiarism. The material has to be written in your own words. The relevant policies are at WP:COPYRIGHT and WP:Close paraphrasing. Please let me know if you have any questions. --Mkativerata (talk) 22:24, 19 December 2010 (UTC)

When you created William Harding (British Army officer) you used a verbatim copy of the OED entry. It needs a re-write, or it will have to be deleted.--Old Moonraker (talk) 10:16, 8 October 2011 (UTC)

Arthur Norman[edit]

Hi. I don't suppose you can shed any light on my confusion with the University Of Cambridge lecturer of the same name, could you please? Thanks. -- Trevj (talk) 21:55, 25 November 2011 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. 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.
