In recognition of your pivotal copyediting efforts leading to the promotion of fluorine to
feature article status. I thank you for your initiative. Sandbh (talk) 06:25, 16 August 2014 (UTC)


Congrats with this F-FA step. I understand that right now you are still jumping happily on you chair ;-) -DePiep (talk) 20:40, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

FA congratulations[edit]

Just a quick note to congratulate you on the promotion of Fluorine to FA status recently. If you would like to see this (or any other FA) appear as "Today's featured article" soon (either on a particular date or on any available date), please nominate it at the requests page. If you'd like to see an FA appear on a particular date in the next year or so, please add it to the "pending" list. In the absence of a request, the article may end up being picked at any time (although with about 1,302 articles waiting their turn at present, there's no telling how long – or short! – the wait might be). If you'd got any TFA-related questions or problems, please let me know. BencherliteTalk 14:14, 1 September 2014 (UTC)

Thorium GAN[edit]

I did everything you asked for. Double sharp (talk) 06:14, 7 September 2014 (UTC)

(It's funny how some distance / makes everything seem weak / And the nucleons that controlled me / Can't get to me at all [I need to fix this rhyme] / It's time to see what I can do / To test it out and tunnel through... OK I should stop now) Double sharp (talk) 07:18, 7 September 2014 (UTC)

F and Metalloid TFAs[edit]

Parcly, please read my response at Wikipedia:Today's featured article/requests/Metalloid. Double sharp (talk) 07:24, 9 September 2014 (UTC)

All is forgiven (but please don't do it again, all right?) Double sharp (talk) 14:10, 9 September 2014 (UTC)

Nobelium and lawrencium GANs[edit]

I fixed everything you asked for on both articles. (How's the content, though?) Double sharp (talk) 14:13, 9 September 2014 (UTC)

TFA notification[edit]

This is to inform you that Fluorine, which you nominated at WP:FAC, will appear on the Wikipedia Main Page as Today's Featured Article on 23 September 2014. The proposed main page blurb is here; you may amend if necessary. Please check for dead links and other possible faults before the appearance date.

Thank you, Jeremy, for quality articles for project elements such as Flourine and Copper, written on scientific background, for explaining edit summaries, "to make the page less intimidating to readers", for improving the Liar paradox and for keeping ridiculous elements "not intended ... for any remotely serious purpose", - you are an awesome Wikipedian!

Good luck and thanks. 09:16, 26 January 2015 (UTC)– Gilliam (talk)

This edit[edit]

What's with the link to "Can't extend" here? Eman235/talk 20:23, 30 March 2015 (UTC)

@Eman235: I admit, the link was a little joke to play on the large CANNOT. I thought the vermillion red lettering and small caps could be too intimidating to some, so I toned down the message regarding non-free content in userboxes somewhat. Feel free to remove the link though. Parcly Taxel 23:37, 30 March 2015 (UTC)
OK, thanks. It did look rather intimidating! Eman235/talk 00:07, 31 March 2015 (UTC)

April 2015[edit]

Information icon Please refrain from making unconstructive edits to Wikipedia, as you did at Wikipedia:The first rule of Wikipedia. Your edits appear to constitute vandalism and have been reverted or removed. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. Repeated vandalism can result in loss of editing privileges. Thank you. — Jeraphine Gryphon (talk) 08:24, 18 April 2015 (UTC)

@Jeraphine Gryphon: I'm sorry, revert as you please, but cabalism is a pervasive and harmful delusion among Wikipedia editors. Now back to astatine. Parcly Taxel 08:31, 18 April 2015 (UTC)
Please don't edit other editors' comments like you just did here, and if you're going to make large-scale changes to humor articles because of your opinion then please try to seek a consensus first. — Jeraphine Gryphon (talk) 08:33, 18 April 2015 (UTC)

Information icon Please do not edit legitimate talk page comments, as you did at User talk:Parcly Taxel. Such edits are disruptive and appear to be vandalism. Thank you. — Jeraphine Gryphon (talk) 08:56, 18 April 2015 (UTC)

Information icon Thank you for your contributions. Please mark your edits as "minor" only if they are minor edits. In accordance with Help:Minor edit, a minor edit is one that the editor believes requires no review and could never be the subject of a dispute. Minor edits consist of things such as typographical corrections, formatting changes or rearrangement of text without modification of content. Additionally, the reversion of clear-cut vandalism and test edits may be labeled "minor". Thank you. Liz Read! Talk! 09:53, 18 April 2015 (UTC)

Varieties of English[edit]

Information icon In a recent edit to the page Cross-site scripting, you changed one or more words or styles from one national variety of English to another. Because Wikipedia has readers from all over the world, our policy is to respect national varieties of English in Wikipedia articles.

For a subject exclusively related to the United Kingdom (for example, a famous British person), use British English. For something related to the United States in the same way, use American English. For something related to another English-speaking country, such as Canada, Australia, or New Zealand, use the variety of English used there. For an international topic, use the form of English that the original author used.

In view of that, please don't change articles from one version of English to another, even if you don't normally use the version in which the article is written. Respect other people's versions of English. They, in turn, should respect yours. Other general guidelines on how Wikipedia articles are written can be found in the Manual of Style. If you have any questions about this, you can ask me on my talk page or visit the help desk. Thank you. -- intgr [talk] 11:18, 7 September 2015 (UTC)

@Intgr: Haha, then at the least you should have merely reverted the spelling change. The "IP" over there was supposed to be capitalised. I remember when I copy-edited the article on fluorine I had someone roped in to "Americanise" the words (I had done the typing all in British English, seeing as I'm Singaporean). Please don't hurt me – I'm going for potassium! Parcly Taxel 12:12, 7 September 2015 (UTC)
@Parcly Taxel: I didn't revert the "IP" change, have a look at the edit diff. :) -- intgr [talk] 12:17, 7 September 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

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.
