your silent 2016 edits are noted this strange place in this strange world needs pdfpdf like items to return more volubly, JarrahTree 15:07, 20 November 2016 (UTC)

Well thank you! ;-) Pdfpdf (talk) 00:25, 21 November 2016 (UTC)
so much excrement staining the screens of electronic devices, we need the loofah holders to wipe so we can see - help us see the reality behind the stain mr loofah man JarrahTree 00:57, 21 November 2016 (UTC)
You express more confidence in my abilities, (and/or the effectiveness of my abilities), than I feel that I have. So it's very nice to discover that there's at least one person on the planet who thinks I'm not a complete waste of space ... Cheers, Pdfpdf (talk) 09:15, 23 November 2016 (UTC)
Anyone prepared to go into editing in the south china sea area either has to be genius or stark raving, you are probably neither...the heavenly kingdom wants to take over the world, austyralia first (fools), so you are our first line of defence... as for space, dont let me start on that subject here JarrahTree 12:16, 23 November 2016 (UTC)
Kiddo, lets get this straight. Never a legend. More phobias than could fit in a checklist for the 1k internal spare parts lists for a piece of redundant BAE equipment. Just an aged editor really, restrained here by such a vast range of legal administrative and behavioural constraints and requirements that about the only thing possible to say is squarkJarrahTree 14:11, 24 November 2016 (UTC)
I am sure there is something in shakespeare, bukowski, or alinsky about inspiration, and for that matter milligan and antrobus (note that I do not link any of those sources), this place has certain effects, to allow any ed allocated responsibility for such a non encyclopediac tendency as inspiration, then there are probably problems with reliable sources and notability on that one, and it must be late in your timezone!

Grumpy Old Man UBX?[edit]

I'm wanting to locate a "Grumpy Old Man" UBX. Can anyone help me? (Thanks in advance.) Pdfpdf (talk) 09:35, 3 December 2016 (UTC)

very big problem is you might identify with too many of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Userboxes/Health for your own personal safety...
clearly there is no accommodation for your condition at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Userboxes/Emoticons clearly the usual bunch of infantile wikimedians in that lot...
in the great shopping carton of life there might be a few items that you self identify with, but i strongly suggest you keep it to yourself at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Userboxes/Life...
as for https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Userboxes/Wikipedia/humour better said than dead?
nah, typical nothing in site/sight ...JarrahTree 11:15, 3 December 2016 (UTC)

Thank you gentlemen. As usual, there are thousands of things on the web, none of which are exactly what I was looking for. Pdfpdf (talk) 02:41, 4 December 2016 (UTC)

punctuation corrections[edit]

Please look at my recent edits to Edmund Alfred Cornish and Eric Stephen Barnes. Note that an en-dash, not a hyphen, is used in ranges of years, pages, etc. Thus:

right: 1953–1961
wrong: 1953-1961
right: pp. 521–9
wrong: pp. 521-9

In dates that include a month and a year, spaces precede and follow the dash, thus:

13 January 1953 – 4 July 1962

These things are codified in WP:MOS. Michael Hardy (talk) 19:24, 7 December 2016 (UTC)
