Dear friend, Face-smile.svg
Thank you for your 'Thank you' button and also for signing my guestbook.
Sorting our pledges page by hand was a brain-numbing task but I finally decided that it deserved a better layout and that today was a good day for sorting out the mess, on behalf of the whole Typo Team! Face-wink.svg
All best wishes for Easter.
With kind regards;

NuScale Power[edit]

Hi OlEnglish. I got your name off the list of participants at Wikipedia:Wikiproject Cooperation. I have a conflict of interest with NuScale Power, which I'd like to bring up to "Good Article" status, as I do on most pages where I have a COI. I shared a proposed draft on the Talk page here a couple weeks ago, but nobody has shown an interest in reviewing/considering the draft as an improved version of the article. Do you have time to take a look and consider my work? CorporateM (Talk) 18:58, 25 April 2015 (UTC)

Replied at Talk:NuScale Power#Draft. -- œ 02:57, 26 April 2015 (UTC)

deOrphaning script[edit]

Hello everyone! I was just working on responding to a couple bug reports for a script that I worked up as part of a request from this project, and I noticed that only a couple people (who weren't even on this mailing list) are actually using the script. A little history on the script: In March of 2014, Jim Cartar came to my user talk page and said he needed some help in acquiring a script for a backlog drive that he was working on that could keep track of and score deOrphanings for a scored backlog drive. I took that request to the project's talk page (BackLog Drive "DO" (De-Orphaning) script proposal) and there was near unanimous support for this. I thought about the proposal and decided the best way to do it was to build a new script (which is still no where near as comprehensive as Manishearth's OrphanTabs) and build into it a mechanism that will make BLD scoring easy.

What I'm wondering at this point is, since there appears to be only two people using the script, should I continue to develop this script with a goal of using it for scoring BLDs or just debug the existing script and leave it at that. Thanks for any replies or comments.

If you wish to opt-out of future mailings, please remove yourself from the mailing list or alternatively to opt-out of all massmessage mailings, you may add Category:Opted-out of message delivery to your user talk page.

Help with Aubrey McClendon?[edit]

Hi OlEnglish, I found your name on the list of participants in the Living People workgroup at WikiProject Biography, and hope you might be interested in helping out on an article I'm working on. I'm proposing some improvements to the article for Aubrey McClendon, an Oklahoma businessman, and I'm looking for editors to review my suggestions.

Up front, I'd like to let you know that I'm working as a paid consultant to Mr. McClendon, so I'm not making any edits and instead hoping to discuss changes on the article Talk page due to my conflict of interest. An editor did already reviewed my proposed updates for the article and was generally in favor of moving the draft live. Since they've not been around for a few weeks now, I'm hoping someone like yourself can take a look and share any feedback. Thanks, 16912 Rhiannon (Talk · COI) 16:04, 13 May 2015 (UTC)

I'm sorry I'm unable to help at this time. -- œ 22:47, 18 May 2015 (UTC)

Redirects from people, to joint biographies and elsewhere[edit]

Hi. Shooting of Amadou Diallo isn't a joint biography. Compare William King and Antonio Murray, which is a joint biography of the two people named in its title (selected in case you are interested in the police officers charged with crimes, and convicted in this case), or Montgolfier brothers, whose two incoming personal redirects I "completed" last hour.

Working continually on Redirects from people, just now I re-classified and expanded Sean Carroll (police officer), and did the other three police officers along with the victim Amadou Diallo, and his mother and Kadiatou Diallo. Only a couple days ago I learned the method for providing visible rather than hidden WP:COMMENT explanations such as:

  • "participating police officer to event"
  • "from victim to event"
  • "from mother of victim, plaintiff, and memoirist to event"

(quoting the the three linked redirects). See the code if you are interested. Or, this week, I am pasting the crucial part of the {Redr} template code into my edit summaries. The numeral '1' attaches its explanation 'e' to the first of the particular redirect messages. If you are interested, here is almost the only one that I have done with two explanations, history: Finbar Prunty. Numeral '0' would display the explanation above the particular template messages.

hey, sincerely lwp2004[edit]

How do you join projects (MLB, NBA, NFL, NHL, etc.) Also, how do you put images on info boxes and pages. thanks, lwp2004 — Preceding unsigned comment added by Lwp2004 (talkcontribs) 12:51, 31 May 2015 (UTC)

To Lwp2004: Well, to join a WikiProject all you need to do is edit the articles related to that subect, which you're already doing. You can also add your name to a user list, and watch the talk pages of the various wikiprojects for any related discussion. See Wikipedia:WikiProject Baseball, Wikipedia:WikiProject National Basketball Association, Wikipedia:WikiProject National Football League and others, that sometimes have user lists, and sometimes they also have userboxes that you can display on your userpage to show other people that you're part of that wikiproject. For help with images in infoboxes see Help:Infobox picture. -- œ 03:29, 2 June 2015 (UTC)
