Removed db-g1/Remixism[edit]

RE: Remixism

It isn't actually enough for something to be just nonsense to merit speedy deletion, it actually has to be patent nonsense:

  1. Total nonsense - i.e. text or random characters that have no assignable meaning at all. This includes things like "1`- 5bl[9 1vn]304 0=10am[0v9a1 7", where random keys of the keyboard have been pressed.
  2. Content that, while apparently meaningful after a fashion, is so completely and irredeemably confused that no intelligent person can be expected to make sense of it.

Remixism is neither of those, so AFD is the proper process for it. - ulayiti (talk) 11:43, 8 November 2005 (UTC)

Millwall page(s)[edit]

Please note that the exchange below contains football banter, and is not meant to be offensive. Well, not really..

Lions calling Irons![edit]

No, great job N. See me at Orient next season? After today's showing we'll be lucky to be playing Welling Utd! How's Teddy? Be lucky, Lion King 01:53, 18 December 2005 (UTC)

I'll treat your remarks with the contempt they deserve. What else should I have expected from a pig, but a grunt? Lion King 02:38, 18 December 2005 (UTC)

You're quite right N. The way I see it is, that Millwall and your mob, along with Arsenal, Chelsea, Spurs, Charlton, Orient, and Brentford, should all get together, have a few beers and march forward, together, united as one and go and kick the shit out of Palace! All the BestLion King 16:29, 18 December 2005 (UTC)

Teddy does'nt need to run, he can score sitting down! Speaking of which, I've just sat on the old woman's cat and sullied him! Lion King 19:27, 18 December 2005 (UTC)

  • How you doing N? Did you know that your mob won the Western League title in 1907? My lot won in it 1908 and 1909. do you know anything about this? Be lucky, Lion King 22:30, 28 January 2006 (UTC)
  • Thanks for getting back to me mate! weird innit? Maybe we both got booted out for having a row and the carrot crunchers were the only ones that would have us! I've stuck it on our page, we need all the "championships" we can get- WE didn't win The World Cup! Yeah Bloody Bolton- you'll have to go straight for their throats and nick a couple double quick, in any case It'll be a case of double shin pads all 'round! Thanks for looking that all up, and I wish the Irons all the best against those thugs (no I'm not extracting it) Hands across the terraces and all that! Be lucky, Lion King 23:49, 30 January 2006 (UTC)
  • Thanks N. appreciate your time and trouble, I'll have a word with the guy who looks after the Millwall museum, he may be able to shed some light on the matter, I'll let you know If he comes up with anything. Cheers, Lion King 23:37, 31 January 2006 (UTC)

Come On You Irons! Lion King 03:45, 18 February 2006 (UTC)

soccer am template[edit]

EASY This user is

I saw you've contributed on the Soccer AM page. I thought I'd make this as a laugh - dunno if you're interested. There were so many possibilities for the text, but this seemed the obvious. Add it to your user space using {{user soccer am}}. 20px Deano 19:12, 21 December 2005 (UTC)


Thanks for your comments to keep the Category:Catalonian Mexicans. Would you mind taking a look at this? 2005 December 18#Category:Andalusian Mexicans and Category:Aragonese Mexicans. It's basically the same nomination, same roundup ([1] and [2]) but with nastier remarks, now that the original CfD failed. --Vizcarra 03:27, 22 December 2005 (UTC)


Since you have recently posted at Enterprise resource planning I thought you might like to see that I too have added some stuff both there and to its Talk pages. This is just a courtesy notification that I have updated the article since your last activity there.

I believe that I have altered the tone of the article to correct what I thought was an unfortunate WP:POV, or historical bias, but there is also an issue with respect to adequately presenting information about commercial software, open source, and homebrew. Many facts about ERP are true in one of these three main areas, but totally wrong for the others. User:AlMac|(talk) 21:49, 23 December 2005 (UTC)

Wow! You did a great job fixing editing style at the ERP article. Makes me glad I went into the history to let prior ERP editors know that I had added to the content of an article that might be important to them also. User:AlMac|(talk) 22:48, 23 December 2005 (UTC)

Well I do profess to know a good bit about several ERP systems, since being gainfully employed in the field for the last some 25 years, cannot help but gain a diversity of relevant know-how, but I need to be extremely careful to avoid WP:POV. User:AlMac|(talk) 23:15, 23 December 2005 (UTC)

ITFC Manager template[edit]

Hey, I noticed you've edited loads of manager pages to correct the link to the ITFC page, manager subsection. I think that you could probably have achieved this by editing the template instead of each individual page. But that probably doesn't help now! But good work nonetheless...! Budgiekiller 15:38, 16 January 2006 (UTC)

Ignore that. Total bollocks. Sorry! Even better work! Budgiekiller 15:41, 16 January 2006 (UTC)

west ham chants[edit]

what does the 'and tottenham' bit in the over land and sea chant mean? and also I know the name hammers comes from the thames ironworks, and is not to do with west HAM!

WHUFC query=[edit]

all players that are in the West Ham player category have now player position category info added ... however, being a newbie, there's something going on with the links in the goalkeepers' category... any ideas why this cat and not others? Spyrides 21:54, 29 January 2006 (UTC)

Western League[edit]

Looking at the spud page gave me a few ideas... I looked at a player at random called Pass who scored 4 goals in 38 Southern League games, yet scored 6 in 12 in the Western League... this immediately says "reserve team player" to me.. There would also be more records/league tables/appearances etc. of the league in the club records if it was a competition considered worthy of the first team. Yet, I can also believe, from my reading of that period of the club's history, that even if it was a 'reserve' league, 1st teamers may have taken part because of financial obligations ie. the club has to stage the fixture in order to draw in extra revenue.

London Welsh F.C. & 1st Scots Guards F.C.[edit]

Hello mate. You may wish to check here. Spyrides 23:11, 31 January 2006 (UTC) (Spychats)

Marianne Curan[edit]

The consensus at deletion review was that this would be best re-written fom scratch. [3] There is nothing in the article that would help you write a new stub, but if you really want to see it drop a note on my talk page and I'll make the content available.

Eddie Chapman[edit]

Hi Nzd - I've had a delve through my records of Arsenal matches (it's a spreadsheet based on results from a now-defunct stats site). I can't find any record of a West Ham 6-0 win during the war years, the FA Cup win in 1946 excepted. According to my list Arsenal and West Ham played four times in 1940, as follows:

  • January 20 - West Ham 3 Arsenal 0 (League South 'A')
  • March 16 - Arsenal 2 West Ham 3 (League South 'A')
  • April 8 - West Ham 2 Arsenal 1 (League South 'C')
  • December 25 - West Ham 4 Arsenal 2 (Southern Regional League)

The only one of those that is after June was the match on Christmas Day, although the scoreline doesn't match. Looking further ahead in time, there were no other big wins for West Ham before the 1946 cup tie - there were a few 3-0 results, on January 24 and April 6 1942 and October 21, 1944. My results are fairly complete (leagues and cups, and a few friendlies) - perhaps Chapman's recollections were bit fuzzy, and he confused his appearance in one of West Ham's wartime victories with the 6-0 cup match?

My RfA[edit]

Hi Nzd,

As someone who has complimented by contributions in the past, I thought you would like to know that I am a candidate for adminship - you can view my RfA here.

On to more important matters, I am planning on creating a list of celebrities who have appeared on Soccer AM... but finding an accurate source of information is pretty difficult. If you ever come across some kind of source for this information, please let me know!

Cheers, DJR (Talk) 14:41, 22 February 2006 (UTC)

Re : 1992-93[edit]

Hi Nzd,

I find it a bit queer, because the consensus on the AfD was to delete the article along with its edit history. From the record only AlexWilkes has contributed actual content, so if he doesn't really mind about James084 doing the merge (and with acknowledgement that it is merged content from what I see in the edit summaries [4]) then I don't really see a problem here. - Best regards, Mailer Diablo 22:19, 2 March 2006 (UTC)

Wisloka Debica[edit]

Hi there! This is Tymek You removed my stuff about Wisloka Debica I know that this comes from Wisloka's unofficial page but the thing is that I co-author this page and in fact I have written all English-language articles about Wisloka on this page including the one you have removed So I am the author of it all Should I achieve permission from myself (jut kidding) anyway how to solve it?

Anyway just a question How did you find out about Wisloka's English page? I thought nobody from abroad checks it Are interested in Polish 4th division soccer teams or what?


Hello Nzd, Can you help me out, please? I recently edited the Alan Sealey article. It was a couple of sentences but now contains a fair bit of informnation. I removed the 'stub' tag. I looked at the stub pages and there was plenty about classifying stubs, but I couldn't see any guidance about removing the tag. I was 'bold' and removed it. You have put it back. Is there some kind of proceddure for removing one? I thought that I was helping. CheersCount Of The Saxon Shore 01:26, 25 March 2006 (UTC)

Thank you for the Sealey clean up. Now I know what to aim for. Did you leave a message on my talk page? My watchlist (I put you on it so I wouldn't miss your reply) says that you did, but my talk page history has no record.Count Of The Saxon Shore 19:33, 26 March 2006 (UTC)[edit]

Elizabethan Ireland biographies[edit]

Hullo, Ryan. Can you please give your reasons for suggesting the deletion of this category? Or do you simply want to retitle it as Elizabethan Ireland people? If it's the latter, perhaps you'd explain the edit implications for the listed pages. Thanks.--shtove 20:29, 14 May 2006 (UTC)

Hullo, not-Ryan. I get your point. I set up the category and, in light of your reply, have no problem with the re-name. I guess that makes a consensus. Thanks.--shtove 21:08, 14 May 2006 (UTC)

History of West Ham United[edit]

Nzd, sorry for the late reply to your comments about my West Ham website. I also apologise for my aggressive tone in my first posting about the removal of the Wikipedia link to my site. I am still a victim of my tough working-class childhood.

I created my Spartacus Educational in 1997. I was a history teacher who wanted to produce materials that my students could use when studying local history. The website was popular with students all over the world and so I decided to make it into a full-time job. This of course meant that I had to find a way of funding the website. As I was fully committed to the idea that this information should be available to everyone who wanted to use it I rejected the subscription model. Instead I sold advertising space on my site. For many years I ran the website at a loss. However, since the emergence of Google AdSense, it has been possible to make a living from a website.

I am unclear why I should be criticised for selling advertising space in order to keep information free. I am aware that Wikipedia does not carry advertising. However, is a site owned by a multimillionaire morally superior to one being produced by an educationalist?

In fact, my main intention has been to create materials that have little commercial value in book form. I have therefore concentrated on writing about the past from the perspective of those without power. Historians tend to call this approach: “history from below”.

I went to school in Dagenham and have been a supporter of West Ham for over 50 years. As I have created a website that provides me with a reasonable living, I decided to spend the next couple of years producing a comprehensive online history of West Ham. This will enable students to research the subject in some detail. When I was a teacher a lot of the students were unable to do GCSE coursework on the history of West Ham because of the shortage of materials online. Hopefully, my website will able to change that situation.

My plan is to produce a year by year account of the history of West Ham. So far, I have produced the first-draft of the first 12 years.

The analysis of every season includes links to pages on individual players. So far, there are 62 biographies but by the time I have finished there will be over a 1,000.

I believe that it will become the most detailed account of the history of any football club on the web. I will not bother to add links to these pages at Wikipedia. Instead I leave it up to your good judgement to decide if Wikipedia visitors will benefit from such a link.

On the subject of links, I would highly recommend that you consider providing links to John Farley’s excellent website on West Ham.

Unfortunately, John Farley’s pages do not rank very high in search-engines and his work is therefore being missed by West Ham fans.

I am using my site to give access to all the good sites on West Ham. These links appear on every one of my pages (including to Wikipedia).

I am hoping that this will be a collaborative effort. I will be posting messages on West Ham forums for fans to send me any information they have on early players. I am also hoping that relatives of the players will also contact me with information. This has happened with the rest of my website. Web surfers often do searches for relatives. As a result I have obtained a lot of material from the relatives of the people I have written about.

If you want to help me with this project I can be contacted at:

George Furnell[edit]

His name is listed as George Furnell at the West Ham United F.C. Player & People List website, and also in the book Blows, Kirk & Hogg, Tony (2000). The Essential History of West Ham United. Headline. ISBN 0-7472-7036-8. . I'd guess one may be a middle name, and there are precedents of players using their middle names at the time, for instance Henry Thomas Bradshaw, better known as Tom Bradshaw. David George Furnell?

Jim Barrett[edit]

Hi - I note that you created articles for Jim G. Barrett and Jim W. Barrett. Looking at their bios and checking elsewhere, is it possible that you have them mixed up? It appears that James William was the father and James Guy was the son- if I'm right can we swap them round? Best wishes. Daemonic Kangaroo 06:41, 26 June 2007 (UTC)

Hi again. Thanks for the reply. I've checked their entries at (unfortunately this is a subscription only site so I can't link to it) and this confirms that the father was James William and the son was James Guy. To avoid conflict with your sources, I have taken the liberty of renaming the articles as Jim Barrett, Sr. and Jim Barrett, Jr. following the precedent set by Alan Ball. Cheers.

Invitation to Wikipedia meetup in London[edit]

Wikimedia UK logo

Date: 13:00 onwards, Sunday 10 August 2008

Venue: Penderel's Oak pub, Holborn WC1 map

More information: Wikipedia:Meetup/London 12


I noticed that you have listed yourself as a Wikipedian in London, so I thought you might like to come to one of our monthly social meetups. The next one is going to be on Sunday 10 August, which might well be rather short notice, but if you can't come this time, we try to have one every second Sunday of the month.

If you haven't been before, these meetups are mainly casual social events for Wikipedia enthusiasts in which we chat about Wikipedia and any other topics we fancy. It's a great way to meet some very keen Wikipedians, but we'd also love for you to come along if you're interested in finding out more about Wikipedia, other Wikimedia projects, or other collaborative wiki projects too.

The location is a pub that is quite quiet and family friendly on a Sunday lunchtime, so hopefully younger Wikipedians will also feel welcome and safe. Alcohol consumption is certainly not required!

Although the meetups are popular, many UK-based editors still don't know about them. It would be great to welcome some fresh faces, so I hope you can come along.

We're keen to get as many Wikimedians coming as possible, and we already have approximately 200 guests, including members of the press, and some mystery guests! More details can be found at - expect an Eigenharp, a mulled wine hot tub, a free hog roast, a haybale amphitheatre and more. If you're interested in coming - and we'd love to have you - please go to the ten.wikipedia page and follow the link to the Facebook event. Signing up on Facebook will add you to the party guestlist. Entry fee is a heavily subsidised £5 and entry is restricted to over 18s. It promises to be a 10th birthday party to remember! If you have any questions, please email me at chasemewiki at

Hope we'll see you there, (and apologies for the talk page spam) - Chase me ladies, I'm the Cavalry (talk) 23:37, 12 December 2010 (UTC)

Notification: changes to "Mark my edits as minor by default" preference[edit]

Hello there. This is an automated message to tell you about the gradual phasing out of the preference entitled "Mark all edits minor by default", which you currently have (or very recently had) enabled.

On 13 March 2011, this preference was hidden from the user preferences screen as part of efforts to prevent its accidental misuse (consensus discussion, guidelines for use at WP:MINOR). This had the effect of locking users in to their existing preference, which, in your case, was true. To complete the process, your preference will automatically be changed to false in the next few days. This does not require any intervention on your part and all users will still be able to manually mark their edits as being minor in the usual way.

For well-established users such as yourself there is a workaround available involving custom JavaScript. If you have any problems, feel free to drop me a note.

Thank you for your understanding and happy editing :) Editing on behalf of User:Jarry1250, LivingBot (talk) 20:51, 15 March 2011 (UTC)
