If you find time for it, please take a look at the article about Gustav Laabs. Any help is appreciated and I will of course add you to the DYK nom for the article.--BabbaQ (talk) 22:36, 19 September 2015 (UTC)


I'm a little upset that you insist on adding the primary source tag on top. The article is short, and most of the content is covered by both the primary source and the other two sources (non primary). Also, in the place where you added a better citation tag, I believe that section is covered by other sources as well. I'll take a deeper look at that. Cheers.

@Outedexits: Welcome to Wikipedia. Please take a look at the guidelines on identifying reliable sources. The Underberg company's own website is clearly not a third-party source. The Drinks Enthusiast blog is a self-published source, and is just a retail site with a couple of user-generated reviews. Statements regarding the product stimulating digestion or breaking down alcohol are contentious and require citations from reliable sources. Nick Number (talk) 03:06, 29 October 2015 (UTC)


Thanks again. I responded by email. //Halibutt 15:10, 6 November 2015 (UTC)

I am glad because it was very nice of you, because you made our voice heard. Now Peter's family know that the knowledge He shared with the world, will remain accessible to all people on Earth. Thank you. --The Polish (talk) 23:58, 8 November 2015 (UTC)
(edit conflict) Thanks a lot for your help. Many of us from plwiki would have said the last goodbye to Belissarius -- if only we hadn't been separated by the ocean. Belissarius wasn't just a nick with contributions, he was a friend and an important member of our community. So for me, it was essential that a Wikipedian was present. Thanks for your time and engagement. Tar Lócesilion (queta) 00:10, 9 November 2015 (UTC)
Newlyprofligate and I were glad to do what little we could. Nick Number (talk) 02:02, 9 November 2015 (UTC)

It appears you've deleted some contributions on the history of patball. Any reason for this? Bobedda (talk) 21:47, 9 November 2015 (UTC)

Welcome to Wikipedia. Please provide a reliable source for your statements. Nick Number (talk) 21:50, 9 November 2015 (UTC)

Do you have any reason to doubt the validity of the statements? I assure you they are true statements. Almost all of the other information on the page is not sourced either. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Bobedda (talkcontribs) 22:07, 9 November 2015 (UTC)

Yes. It all sounds highly dubious. You're correct that other information in the article is not sourced, and I've just removed a great deal of that material. Please cite reliable sources when adding further information. Nick Number (talk) 22:27, 9 November 2015 (UTC)

A "sic" you found[edit]

A quick note to let you know that your tagging in Afro-Dominicans (Dominican Republic) led to discovering illegitimate sources in the article. It certainly needs helps. Cheers. Caballero/Historiador 17:24, 25 January 2016 (UTC)

In response to your edit summary "Not sure why put a 'Sic' on a reference title", the word "Caribbean" was misspelled, and I was marking it so that I could easily recognize it during my periodic typo searches. I don't have the ability to look at the target website on my present Internet connection, but if it doesn't meet WP:RS then I'm glad it was caught. Nick Number (talk) 18:25, 25 January 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for the explanation. :) Caballero/Historiador 18:39, 25 January 2016 (UTC)
