A barnstar for you![edit]

Kindness Barnstar Hires.png The Random Acts of Kindness Barnstar
Thank you for your kind words on ANI, I know that I'm not perfect but I try to do my best and also the right thing. In future, I will stand by my new found belief as stated on my talk because its not worth my time and energy to take on their load. Duds in here are duds in real life too, why try to sing to a cow, right? In any case, I really appreciate your kindness and wish you a great day ahead. Best.

Hi, I think I may have missed a message or two of yours during my extended wikibreak. Also, thank you for the barnstar. Hope all is well with you and yours this holiday season. Best, MarmadukePercy (talk) 00:28, 20 December 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for all your hard work on the Mayflower passenger articles, you have earned this award several times over for your fine editing. And maybe I can think of a few other Barnstars you really deserve also.

Re: your email[edit]

Hi there. I don't really understand what you were trying to say, could you provide me with some diffs? Basalisk inspect damageberate 23:18, 1 March 2013 (UTC)�

Sure. I will do it by email again. Mugginsx (talk) 23:22, 1 March 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I can assure you that I didn't do that deliberately; I think I must have hit the rollback button on my watchlist accidentally. I figured this out just before you emailed me and left him a message on his talk page; he can fix it if he wants to. Thanks for letting me know. Basalisk inspect damageberate 23:31, 1 March 2013 (UTC)
No problem. Have hit the rollback key by mistake myself. It happens. Thanks for fixing. Mugginsx (talk) 23:33, 1 March 2013 (UTC)

John Smith (explorer)[edit]

I must admit that the protocol on discussions, and what people actually prefer can be confusing. So I post this here as well as on my talk page. Perhaps it should be reverted. It looks like the type of insidious vandalism that the essays warn against as the worst kind. That is, it looks like it may be credible so editors are reluctant to revert it, as I was, even though it is suspicious to someone with some familiarity with the subject. It might take a good amount of research to come to a firm conclusion that it is wrong. The names sound perhaps right, one or two perhaps a bit off for the time. At least I tagged it for a citation needed; but perhaps with a closer look, it should be reverted with a note that it should only be added if there is a reliable, verifiable source. Donner60 (talk) 18:46, 5 March 2013 (UTC)

I agree and I reverted it. It is in none of the usual sources. Mugginsx (talk) 19:06, 5 March 2013 (UTC)
Good work. Thanks. Donner60 (talk) 04:19, 6 March 2013 (UTC)

Article Feedback deployment[edit]

Hey Mugginsx; I'm dropping you this note because you've used the article feedback tool in the last month or so. On Thursday and Friday the tool will be down for a major deployment; it should be up by Saturday, failing anything going wrong, and by Monday if something does :). Thanks, Okeyes (WMF) (talk) 21:54, 13 March 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the notice. Mugginsx (talk) 14:54, 14 March 2013 (UTC)


I don't think I ever thanked you for standing up for me, I'm sorry you got so much abuse in return. Really I am. Wee Curry Monster talk 18:43, 14 May 2013 (UTC)

Sorry to see you go. Rest and come back. You know more about the Falklands that any other editor in Wikipedia. You caused me no trouble. You have to respect someone first in order for them to offend you. They do not even respect themselves! Best wishes to you and if you wish, rest and come back.

Why the reversion on George Soule?[edit]

I saw that you reverted a change I made to George Soule (Mayflower passenger). I made this change because I started working on a page for someone who is descended from "George Sowle" who was on the Mayflower, and according to the article, this is an alternate spelling of Soule's name. This is from the article: "George and Mary Soule and their first son Zachariah (all with the recorded surname of “Sowle”)." His first name is also spelled "Georg" in a few places. People searching for this person should know right up front that there are alternate spellings of his name. Is there a better way to achieve this than what I did? Mycota (talk) 23:21, 15 March 2014 (UTC)

Answered you on your talk page and article talk page. Mugginsx (talk) 11:06, 16 March 2014 (UTC)
