Always! Thanks! -- œ 07:28, 3 January 2016 (UTC)

Restore protection?[edit]

Hello OlEnglish. Since the protection on your user page expired it has been hit by vandal(s) on a regular basis. Would you like the protection restored? As I am not an admin I can't do it myself but I will be happy to file a WP:RFPP if you would like me to do so. Enjoy the rest of your weekend in spite of this. MarnetteD|Talk 21:37, 2 January 2016 (UTC)

Oops I forgot that you are an admin :-) Several of us are happy to keep reverting this troll so please proceed as you see fit. Cheers. MarnetteD|Talk 22:08, 2 January 2016 (UTC)
Well. I just got back from vacation so I missed all the hub-bub here. Hm, what an odd fellow, seemed intent on turning me into a female for some reason? Anyways, thank you very much for the reverts and protections. -- œ 07:30, 3 January 2016 (UTC)

Nomination[edit]

Hey,

I saw that you would be willing to nominate users to become an administrator. I'm fairly new to wikipedia, but have really been enjoying working on counter-vandalism. If you could nominate me, I'd really appreciate it.

Schuddeboomw (talk) 16:17, 31 January 2016 (UTC)

Hello there! Welcome to Wikipedia. Being fairly new to Wikipedia usually means you would not pass an WP:RfA. It is still too early. But keep working on that counter-vandalism and I do hope you'll stick around and help us to improve the project. -- œ 17:24, 31 January 2016 (UTC)

Please delete Patriot Rail Corporation page[edit]

I work for Patriot Rail Company (previously Patriot Rail CORPORATION). Patriot Rail Corporation no longer exists. It was bought by SteelRiver in 2012. This page is causing a LOT of confusion with our customers as it is not up to date.

If I cannot update it, please delete it. Thanks for your help!

Hello Maureen. You CAN update it. But the way you were going about it was against our Neutral point of view policy, in which articles must be balanced and written in a non-promotional manner. You can also nominate the article for deletion if you'd like, using the Articles for deletion or proposed deletion process. -- œ 21:54, 8 February 2016 (UTC)
Maureen, I've decided to compromise and restore your rewrite but I've removed the overtly promotional bits. The category must be renamed under a separate process. -- œ 22:10, 8 February 2016 (UTC)

Deleting my article[edit]

Hello, i am unaware why you deleted my recent article of African American Mayors Association

OurMayors (talk) 22:02, 8 February 2016 (UTC)

I've added a note on your talk page regarding adding promotional content to Wikipedia. This is the same reason this article has been deleted in the past, as well as it being a likely copyright violation. Please read the messages on your talk page. -- œ 22:09, 8 February 2016 (UTC)
The article, African American Mayors Association, exists again. I did some work to clean up some of the promotion that oozed from it and did some other fixes, but it's still unsourced and probably suffers from the same other problems as before.Godsy(TALKCONT) 15:00, 21 March 2016 (UTC)
Thank you for that. -- œ 22:11, 21 March 2016 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for February 9[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Patriot Rail Company, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Shortline (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Untitled[edit]

I've just been editing a page you have spent a lot of time on (and I will add done a good job). I understand there is a way of doing this, however I'm fairly new to this. It would have been nice to have been told about references rather than have everything deleted. I had to gather the information up several times before I realised what I needed to do. I read "Please do not bite the newcomers" and I'm not sure this was adhered to. You could have made it much easier for me to include references had you sent me a message rather than delete what I had posted.Spot1026 (talk) 07:54, 23 February 2016 (UTC)

Sorry OlEnglish, I'm not sure how this message got to you. Spot1026 (talk) 10:15, 23 February 2016 (UTC)

No problem. My sig has been known to erringly lead new users here in the past, to my amusement. ;) -- œ 11:03, 23 February 2016 (UTC)
Sorry OlEnglish, I will remove the link to your talk page from my talk page to avoid this in the future. Thanks for the ping. Trut-h-urts man (TC) 21:14, 23 February 2016 (UTC)

Overflow of your Dashboard page[edit]

Dear User:OlEnglish. Your User:OlEnglish/Dashboard page is on overflow, and appears at Category:Pages where template include size is exceeded (see the corresponding talk page). As a result, some parts of your page are not correctly displayed. Perhaps, you should consider splitting this page. Since template {{Admin dashboard}} seems to be the culprit, this is a good candidate to be moved to another page. Best regards. Pldx1 (talk) 15:24, 13 March 2016 (UTC)

Fixed Thanks -- œ 08:18, 15 March 2016 (UTC)
Hi. I am here again. Template {{Admin dashboard}} creates temporarily overflows, that sometimes cure by themselves, but come back when the pages are near the limit. To solve this kind of problems, there is now a more efficient version of the template, that provides the same functionality while being less resources consuming (and also remains inside it's box when minimized). Perhaps you will transclude {{Admin dashboard/light}} instead of {{Admin dashboard}}. Best regards. Pldx1 (talk) 13:56, 19 March 2016 (UTC)

TROUT[edit]

Rainbow trout transparent.png Whack!

You've been whacked with a wet trout.

Don't take this too seriously. Someone just wants to let you know you did something silly.


Dude why did you edit your to do list in 3 separate edits consecutively. (I really just wanted to trout slap someone)

Will2022 (talk 15:15, 19 May 2016 (UTC)

Oh it's not much of an actual to-do list anymore as it's evolved into just a dumping ground of random crap I happen to find interesting. I probably should delete it in fact. -- œ 11:59, 21 May 2016 (UTC)

A while back you reviewed some content I proposed for the NuScale Power article with a conflict of interest on the Talk page.
