William Broderick Cloete[edit]

Hey OfficeBoy :). Thanks for your edit to this article - do you have any reference backing up the statement about his marriage? Ironholds (talk) 20:43, 5 October 2013 (UTC)

Hello. Of course, there are severel. Just google the subject.

By the way: Most of the sources give his middle name as Brodrick instead of Broderick.

Greetings, OfficeBoy.

Thanks. In the future, users are expected to add citations to any content they add; just a word to the wise :). Enjoy the remainder of your weekend! Ironholds (talk) 20:29, 6 October 2013 (UTC)

Sources?[edit]

Hi and thanks for locating middle names in the Homer Davenport article, but can you tell me the source you used to find them? The source we have in there doesn't verify the info and as Homer Davenport is a featured article, we have to verify EVERYTHING. So if you could, pop by that talk page (or answer here) and let me know the source. Montanabw(talk) 21:24, 17 February 2014 (UTC)

June 2014[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm TJRC. I noticed that you made a change to an article, Stirling Silliphant, but you didn't provide a reliable source. It's been removed and archived in the page history for now, but if you'd like to include a citation and re-add it, please do so! If you need guidance on referencing, please see the referencing for beginners tutorial, or if you think I made a mistake, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. TJRC (talk) 23:23, 30 June 2014 (UTC)

Hello. Well there are several sources on the internet, for example [this one] or [this one]. Maybe that helps. Thank you. OfficeBoy (talk) 15:25, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
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.

Peg Entwistle[edit]

Did you attempt a legitimate (sourced) edit in the Peg Entwistle article, or was your mention of 1888 and the USS YALE meant as something else? Peg Entwistle was not yet born in 1888, and she never sailed on the YALE. This is clearly shown and sourced in the Ellis Island Foundation records and a biography detailing her family and their arrival to America. The edit you attempted has been reverted. 169.232.212.171 (talk) 06:31, 26 November 2015 (UTC)

I can read and therefore I am well aware that Entwistle was not born in 1888. 1888 is simply the year in which the ship on which she "reportedly" emigrated to the USA was put in service. I don't know what this has to do with her DOB. The linking was (obviously) intended to be an improvement of the article. I googled it again and I think I was mistaken. I guess it was probably rather the City of Paris which was named Philadelphia around the time the Entwistle family relocated to America. But of course I will refrain from any further editings of the article. English-speaking Wikipedia is surprisingly hostile, ungrateful, and bitchy. Thank you and good night.

Clark edit Suggestion[edit]

You wouldn't happen to have a source you could add on Walter Clark's death on the Titanic? Thanks! --KingJeff1970 (talk) 17:06, 29 March 2016 (UTC)

For example Titanics passenger manifest which is all over the internet. Just check the 'First Class passengers' section on Encyclopedia Titanica. You're welcome. OfficeBoy (talk) 20:08, 29 March 2016 (UTC)
I suppose that means you're not going to take responsibility for your own edit. It would be helpful to the rest of us if you did.--KingJeff1970 (talk) 15:23, 30 March 2016 (UTC)

March 2016[edit]

Please stop adding unsourced content, as you did to William A. Clark. This contravenes Wikipedia's policy on verifiability. If you continue to do so, you may be blocked from editing Wikipedia. OfficeBoy, you have a long history of adding material without sources and leaving it to others to clean up after you. There are numerous comments above explaining the problem to you. Please stop doing that. TJRC (talk) 19:06, 30 March 2016 (UTC)
