British Empire

The term was applied once in 1943 to the US, the USSR and the British Empire. The statement you reversed states that "It was a term applied to the United Kingdom and her British Empire for several hundred years before sustaining immense damage yet surviving the full force of both World Wars." That's something very different. I'm sure that the British Empire was one of the main powers pre-WWII, but so were many other countries.

Welcome to Wikipedia. Please do not add nonsense to Wikipedia. It is considered vandalism. If you would like to experiment, use the sandbox. Thank you. ONUnicorn 16:56, 31 May 2006 (UTC)

Go to hell. I edited a page based upon the information I had, which is the whole point of this site. I in no way "vandalized" anything. If you're that uptight, get a life and get outside now and then. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)

Need help getting an infobox to work.

Hello, you used the {{helpme}} tag. How may I help you? When you've asked your question, please put the tag back so we know to check back. Alternatively, you can join the Wikipedia Bootcamp IRC channel to get real-time help. (Use the web-based client to get instant access.)-- 9cds(talk) 19:30, 8 June 2006 (UTC)

I'm having trouble modifying an infobox for an article on a "mountain". I put the coordinates in, and the infobox shows the coordinates, and after them it has {{{7}}}″{{{8}}}. How do I get that to go away?

Do you have a link? -- 9cds(talk) 19:35, 8 June 2006 (UTC)

scroll down to the bottom

When you use {{coor dms}} you need 8 parameters (see the usage). When you are missing parameters the 7 and 8 appear. The solution is to include the missing coordinates.--Commander Keane 19:52, 8 June 2006 (UTC)
I fixed up your example. Just need to use {{coor dm}} that doesn't require seconds. I think that's what you wanted, give me buzz if not.--Commander Keane 20:29, 8 June 2006 (UTC)


Are you being helped or do you need more? - CrazyRussian talk/contribs/email 19:48, 8 June 2006 (UTC)

I can't find anything. -- 9cds(talk) 19:49, 8 June 2006 (UTC)
Do you mean you can't find the infobox (it's at the bottom, in the draft of the article), or you can't find what's wrong with the infobox? ONUnicorn 19:51, 8 June 2006 (UTC)

Well let me know on my talk if you need help in the next 2 hrs. - CrazyRussian talk/contribs/email 19:51, 8 June 2006 (UTC)

ONUnicorn/Browning Hill Research


I moved ONUnicorn/Browning Hill Research to User:ONUnicorn/Browning Hill Research, as it it looks like your private research page for coming up with a good article on Browning Hill. -- Koffieyahoo 04:18, 15 June 2006 (UTC)

Al Leong

Good work on the Al Leong article. Thanks. -- BBlackmoor (talk) 04:19, 15 June 2006 (UTC)

Indiana time

It was just screaming to be made its own article, I just thought Id be bold and do it. Sorry if I startled you! --Astrokey44 05:10, 17 June 2006 (UTC)

Moved your comments


I moved your comments on Wikipedia talk:Mediation Cabal/Cases/2006-06-16 User:Sheynhertz-Unbayg to the main page under the heading Discussion. I think this is the place where all comments on the case are supposed to be made. I'll respond to them there. Peace. Batamtig 23:26, 19 June 2006 (UTC)

Need help with an image.

I created an image using Paint for an article that did not have an image. I've been trying to upload it, and it wouldn't take a .bmp, so I changed it to .pdf, but now the image won't display unless you open the pdf. Obviously it can't go in the article that way. This is my first attempt at image upload, so... what am I doing?

To my knowledge Wikipedia accepts only .gif and .jpeg files. --Pilot|guy 15:25, 21 June 2006 (UTC)
If you are using paint (like I do :-)), you will want to go File, Save As and select PNG. PNG is the best format for icons and things. Or you could select JPEG, which is good for photos. --Commander Keane 15:28, 21 June 2006 (UTC)
Yeay!!! It worked!!! Fork in the Road.png Thanks for all your help!!! Now to try to get it in the article...

Re:Melnikov Disambig

Phew! Man, you really freaked me out when I saw this whole thing that says: scary that Sheynhertz-Unbayg isn't the only one adding these things... I kind of thought it was a reference to a Disambig vandal or something. Thanks for the cateogory addition! It'll be helpful in the long run... hopefully someone can add to it... especially the dang red links that Wiki has...

Thanks a bunch! Logical2u (Wikibreak) 14:47, 23 June 2006 (UTC)

I notice you've made a lot of changes to the article on Water, including adding the chemical infobox. Now, I'm not saying these edits are bad... but you do realize, don't you, that there is a seperate article on the chemical properties of water? And that that other article Water (molecule) has the infobox you added? And that the infobox in Water (molecule) is more complete then the one you added to Water? ONUnicorn 18:42, 6 July 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for noticing. Yeah, my edits may look bad at the moment, but I'm halfway through. The article when I found it was in a terrible state, it didn't flow at all. Just trying to put some order here. And about the chembox, its only a mini one (see Wikipedia:Chemical_infobox) and it had been requested on the talk page - Jak (talk) 18:52, 6 July 2006 (UTC)

Time in Indiana TOC

Ahhh, glad you asked, I never though of a problem like that. Under your preferences there should be a Misc tab. In that section is an option: "Show table of contents (for pages with more than 3 headings)". Make sure that box is checked. I currently have a TOC on the page after the bump, so if you're still having problems, check to assure you have javascript enabled in your browser. (I think the TOC uses javascript). Good work on maintaining and cleaning the article! Craig R. Nielsen 22:14, 6 July 2006 (UTC)

Comment from Antonio Di Dio left on user page.

Dear ONUnicorn I'm so sorry I'm writing here because I don't know a real place to talk to you, I would like to say that the Arabian Nights were not erased by me I simply re-added some other works as Chaucer Dante and a few other authors. I don't think that we can let these facts out of Wikipedia because Chaucer is a pillar of English and human culture as Dante and the few others I restored I look forward to talking to you

Thank you!

Thank you for welcoming me to Wikipedia!

Sheynhertz RfC

You're fine. I was just really sleepy and confused. Nevermind that comment. Check the edit summaries. Thanks for your participation in the RfC.—WAvegetarian(talk) 23:23, 19 July 2006 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Gnostic Movement

I have felt like I was the only sane person taking hostile from from all sides -- thanks for being the cavalry and riding in over the hill with a sane, neutral, unbiased comment. I'm never, ever engaging in another Gnostic movement AfD again; nobody's disinterested. This one and the other two have been crazy:

Again, thanks. --A. B. 16:01, 21 July 2006 (UTC)

Re: Wyandotte Caves

okay, I have removed the copyvio, moved the new article to Wyandotte Caves and merged the history of Wyandotte Cave to Wyandotte Caves (this was necessary since you used that article, we need to preserve contributer histories per the GFDL). I also deleted the temp page, but left its talk page up in case you need it. Let me know if I can do anything else. Thanks. --W.marsh 19:40, 27 July 2006 (UTC)


Updated DYK query On 29 July, 2006, Did you know? was updated with a fact from the article Wyandotte Caves, which you created. If you know of another interesting fact from a recently created article, then please suggest it on the "Did you know?" talk page.

Great rewrite -- Samir धर्म 23:33, 29 July 2006 (UTC)

Instruction creep

Thank you for your interest and input. Avoiding instruction creep is not a "new" concept in wiki --> [1]. In the past, we've just been pointing to the main WikiMedia project site since 2004. A group of editors simply ported the concept here for efficiency's sake. (See: Wikipedia:Policy trifecta) - Davodd


I rather belatedly came across your edit of 4 May. Bird species list are usually in taxonomic order, so that closely related species are next to each other in the list. I've changed the heading to clarify that, thanks, jimfbleak 15:07, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

No problem, I only put the message here in case you found another species list - I came unstuck myself editing a highways article, not realising I was changing a format agreed and used on 50 similar articles! jimfbleak 05:17, 8 August 2006 (UTC)

Passive smoking

No arguments at all with the site being in the external links section - I should perhaps have put it there myself! Thanks. Nmg20 16:57, 11 August 2006 (UTC)

World Animal Foundation

I believe you might be correct on this organization being notable. Is there an article or something that might show that? I looked but could find nothing. I would prefer no going to AfD. I assume you are busy, but just a response would do. Then sometime in the future, say 2 months, we could return to this. meatclerk 22:09, 14 August 2006 (UTC)

ONUnicorn, Thank you for your kind and quick response. I've learn through bitter experience give it more than a college try. I've schedueled 09/15/2006 as the date my mailer will remind me to check on this. If you think you need more time, by all means please use the talkpage, leave a message on the discussion page of the article, or if there is a significant improvement I will be able to see that. I'm taking the article of my watchpage, it gets overloaded to quickly. However, as I've said, my mailer will remind me about this and you. Thanks again for your response.meatclerk 17:17, 15 August 2006 (UTC)

kitten eater picture

Hello, I see you've written that the picture can be seen in several websites. While this might help the fair use claim, I think it would be helpful if you clarify which website exactly this picture came from. Thanks, CanadianCaesar Et tu, Brute? 23:38, 18 August 2006 (UTC)

Cool :P CanadianCaesar Et tu, Brute?
