A barnstar for you![edit]

For your efforts in improving the article's coherency. Not many editors have a depth of knowledge in grammar much like you do! YuMaNuMa Contrib 13:14, 12 April 2012 (UTC)

Lynching of Jesse Washington[edit]

Do you have a RS for this edit? If so, we need to restore that content, but in the right place, chronologically speaking. -- Brangifer (talk) 06:02, 29 September 2012 (UTC)

I don't know what RS means. Do you mean "references?"
My edit was fairly straightforward - I can't see what problems might have been caused. Newzild 08:10, September 29, 2012‎ (UTC)
RS=WP:RS. All content must be sourced/referenced. If you have a reference for that, it can be restored. -- Brangifer (talk) 16:29, 30 September 2012 (UTC)
It doesn't need a reference because it is referenced elsewhere. The lede is a summary of the rest of the article. If you scroll down then you will see it is referenced.

October 2012[edit]

Hello, I'm RandomLittleHelper. I wanted to let you know that I undid one of your recent contributions, such as the one you made to Kerry Packer, because it didn’t appear constructive to me. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks, RandomLittleHelpertalk 01:35, 11 October 2012 (UTC) Sorry, I read it out of context on WP:Huggle, Carry on.--RandomLittleHelpertalk 01:41, 11 October 2012 (UTC)


Hey Newzild, I'd appreciate if you filled in the "dateaccessed" field when referencing web pages - this makes it heaps easier to check up on them when the web page moves, changes or gets removed. The easiest way is to click on cite | Templates | cite web | Access Date. Thanks! -- haminoon (talk) 22:25, 17 May 2015 (UTC)

No Gun Ri[edit]

Thanks for editing No Gun Ri Massacre. That page has a long history, and any fresh eyes on it are much appreciated. GAB (talk) 15:00, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

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.

Boxing MOS[edit]

Hello Newzild, there is an ongoing discussion about professional boxing record tables and I would appreciate if you could share your opinion or at least voice you support or opposition. It would be great if you could voice your opinion here in the "RfC: Flag icons in professional boxing record tables" and "MoS:Boxing Final call" section. Cheers!--Fallengrademan (talk) 19:53, 10 December 2015 (UTC)

Hi, I have moved my edit that you removed to the after boxing part of the page. Wresting may be choreographed, but I have met wrestlers and talked with them, and they tell me that they do take their title reigns seriously and as real accomplishments, so I think this is defenitly worth noting.

Nice edits at Austen[edit]

Your nice edits at Jane Austen looked useful and I have recently added a new section on Themes to the article with an eye to improving the biography. There is currently a nice article on the British author Ian Fleming which looked well-crafted and I was wondering if you might have any comments on the relative quality of the Austen article at this time if you have a chance to glance at it. Cheers. Fountains-of-Paris (talk) 17:29, 23 April 2016 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for May 15[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Logie Awards, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages John Clarke and Michael Cole (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
