Absolutely. Your user page looks very good for a newbie, and you are already adding things too. ( I personally got off to a slow start adding articles.) Well, nice chatting, see your around.  : )

Thanks for catching my typo!

Hi Nelson50, thanks for catching my typo in change management this morning. Obviously, if I am misspelling capitalization in an edit summary, I need to start cutting back on my caffeine intake!

I hope you are enjoying contributing to Wikipedia. If I can add any assistance beyond Lord V's initial welcome, please let me know... Mamawrites 21:42, 7 October 2005 (UTC)


Cheers Nelson50, The Rugby pages for the Irish Teams need a good bit of Work, I made up a template at Template:Rugby Team infobox based on the Soccer template, and added it to Leinster and Munster. Will get around to Ulster and Connacht as soon as I can...Might even throw it onto a few of the other Heineken and Celtic League Teams.

Hi Nelson, I responded to your edits on my talk page.

I see that you are from Ireland. I hear almost nothing but good things about Ireland. My friend has family in county Cork and I think my family hails from county Roscommon, but I am not positive. I hope to take to trip there one day. Regards —MJCdetroit 14:07, 22 March 2006 (UTC)


Thank you for your kind words on's talk page. I find that even the most seemingly intransigent vandals and spammers can mellow out with a little diplomacy. Your support in the matter is appreciated. Feezo (Talk) 09:57, 22 April 2006 (UTC)

Your VandalProof Application

Dear Nelson50,

Thank you for applying for VandalProof! (VP). As you may know, VP is a very powerful program, and in fact with the new 1.1 version release it has even more power. As such we must uphold strict protocols before approving a new applicant. Regretfully, I have chosen to decline your application at this time. The reason for this is that not enough mainspace edits. Please note it is nothing personal by any means, and we certainly welcome you to apply again in the not too distant future. Thank you for your interest in VandalProof.

RE: County Kerry

No worries! Btw, I noticed above that you were looking to try the vandalproof program. Check out Popups (Wikipedia:Tools/Navigation popups) - it's got some features that are helpful for vandal fighting. --AbsolutDan (talk) 02:22, 26 May 2006 (UTC)

Ken Standfield

Sure I'll take a look. This one may be tricky though - he's making several claims to fame, including his authorship. I'll see what I can do! --AbsolutDan (talk) 23:56, 12 June 2006 (UTC)

P.S. thanks for the complement! :) --AbsolutDan (talk) 00:10, 13 June 2006 (UTC)

Hmm... I hate to say it, but this guy does seem notable enough for his own articles. I did a bit of research and his name and mentions of his books are all over the place. Believe me, I hate vanity articles with a passion, and there's recommendations against creating them, but they're not policy and not grounds for deletion (unfortunately!). I'll see what I can do about his other edits though. I'll keep ya posted --AbsolutDan (talk) 00:18, 13 June 2006 (UTC)

Good job on the article. The only item I would have changed (and probably will if you don't get to it first) is the reference formatting. Use the {{cite web}} (see here for how to use...) templates as it properly formats the web references and makes them look "pretty". Anyway, good job! spryde | talk 14:18, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

Brilliant! Thanks for rescuing this from obscurity... I was surprised it wasn't mentioned at all on Wikipedia. Your article is much bigger and better than the stub I would have probably ended up writing! I'm sure there was a Zapmail logo, perhaps we can find it and add this, too?

This edit did two things: revert some vandalism AND restore notable links. I did not mean to refer to you as a vandal. Please be more careful with link deletion though. NJGW (talk) 04:38, 13 December 2008 (UTC)
