Speedy deletion of Society for the Preservation of Beers from the Wood[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Society for the Preservation of Beers from the Wood requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about about a person, organization (band, club, company, etc.) or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the article does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that a copy be emailed to you.  Ravenswing  16:12, 3 November 2008 (UTC)

AfD nomination of Society for the Preservation of Beers from the Wood[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

I have nominated Society for the Preservation of Beers from the Wood, an article you created, for deletion. I do not think that this article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and have explained why at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Society for the Preservation of Beers from the Wood. Your opinions on the matter are welcome at that same discussion page; also, you are welcome to edit the article to address these concerns. Thank you for your time.  Ravenswing  19:37, 3 November 2008 (UTC)

Wentworth Miller[edit]

Re: removing the citations in Wentworth Miller but leaving the cited quotes. I will note the quotes as unsourced. 842U (talk) 11:50, 1 March 2010 (UTC)

Danny Boone[edit]

Thanks for fixing that - I couldn't figure out for the life of me what was wrong with that reference! -Dewelar (talk) 17:46, 4 September 2011 (UTC)

Glad I could help. -- Pemilligan (talk) 04:40, 5 September 2011 (UTC)

Recurring edits[edit]

Thank you for continuing to watch and fix Collis Potter Huntington. Do you have any idea why a series of anonymous users, or maybe one user with different IP addresses, constantly puts CPH's birthday to April from October? Is there anything we can do about it? Ellin Beltz (talk) 15:53, 27 October 2011 (UTC)

I don't know more than what's on the talk page. Apparently there is some disagreement in available records, though there does seem to be a stronger case for October. -- Pemilligan (talk) 00:57, 28 October 2011 (UTC)

According to "the definitive biography" (Collis Potter Huntington, by Cerinda W. Evans, 2 volumes, Publisher: Newport News, Va. : Mariners' Museum (1954) ASIN: B0056PIFGU) which was written from family materials at the request of the family, it's October. I have no idea where the April date came from, it looks like an old typo that keeps getting repeated.Ellin Beltz (talk) 03:10, 30 October 2011 (UTC)

Mr. Anonymous edited again. And left a message to my note on the previous ISP. I changed the page again... Checked that I got all the birthdays correct throughout entire document. Is there anyone to appeal to for help to stop this? Ellin Beltz (talk) 19:26, 4 November 2011 (UTC)

I found the page on disruptive editing, read the advice for dealing with disruptive editors, and made an entry at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents seeking help. Let's hope for the best. -- Pemilligan (talk) 02:46, 5 November 2011 (UTC)

Robin Ficker[edit]

If one or more unregistered users continue to remove "heckler" and registered users leave it alone, it might help to seek {{pp-semi}} semi-protection. I added a little local color from 1972 to the article. —Anomalocaris (talk) 04:32, 27 March 2012 (UTC)

Just for info, [1] page semi'd for one month. CaptainScreebo Parley! 20:48, 2 April 2012 (UTC)
Yes, I had seen it. Thanks. -- Pemilligan (talk) 00:43, 3 April 2012 (UTC)

Howard County Schools[edit]

About this edit

That was not a good edit. Firstly it reverted other changes made too, and those were beneficial changes. Secondly you said "Text says Columbia but references give Ellicott City address and census map says West Friendship." - So why did you not cite new sources? The address "10910 Clarksville Pike (Route 108) Ellicott City, MD 21042" and the map (a stub sticking out "That says "Dist 3, West Friendship 90236" is the one that has the physical offices of the district and that is a part of Columbia CDP) show it as being in Columbia as of 2010 - While there is a West Friendship, Maryland it is not a CDP defined by the US government.

You should understand that USPS city names sometimes don't reflect the actual locations - the USPS city name says "Ellicot City" but the map shows it being in Columbia WhisperToMe (talk) 01:51, 3 December 2012 (UTC)

Image problem in Ellicott City[edit]

FYI, I posted a query under the Village Pump. We'll see what happens there I guess (if anything). Having said that, they are having some kind of general display problem "until the 9th", but whether it affects this or not, I cannot say. Student7 (talk) 18:52, 7 January 2014 (UTC)

A question[edit]

Hi Pemilligan,

You will recognize me as the person who has recently edited the elder scrolls page. While I am new to Wikipedia editing, I would ask that you please explain to me your reversion of my edits to the elder scrolls page. I may seem unqualified to make such edits, but I am the son of one of the writers who worked under Emil Pagliarulo (who you may or may not recognize as the head of writing for Skyrim) and have had my fathers assistance in making these edits. I am not saying that your edits were made incorrectly (although my father is inclined to believe so) but I would at least like to know why. When your read this, please contact me at


Stevethemonkey42 Stevethemonkey42 (talk) 04:19, 20 June 2014 (UTC)

Information should come from reliable published sources. What you added at the end of the article was unsourced and seemed like original research. What you're describing above sounds like primary sourcing, which should only be used with care. -- Pemilligan (talk) 04:57, 20 June 2014 (UTC)

You may not like my response, but a rude email (included below) isn't the way to respond.

Tri-City Suns[edit]

Hey, I noticed that you reverted my edit on Tri-City Suns twice now, and I was hoping that you could explain what was wrong with my edit, so we don't start an edit war or something. spiderjerky (talk) 14:10, 5 December 2014 (UTC)

As I mentioned in the previous edit summary, the Tri-City Suns never played in the American Professional Basketball League according to any reliable sources I can locate. The Atlantic Coast Professional Basketball League changed its name after they played, which I've added to the text this time. I also made a change I've been meaning to for some time, indicating that there are no sources I've been able to find that show they played at all after 2011. -- Pemilligan (talk) 15:48, 5 December 2014 (UTC)
Got it, thanks. spiderjerky (talk) 18:12, 5 December 2014 (UTC)

Gamindustry numbers on Elder Scrolls Online sales section[edit]

I had a litle chat with Ferret and we cleared things out, you can see the discussion on his talk page, DONT revert this change unless you want to get reported too (talk) 06:51, 17 August 2015 (UTC)

If you think something on Wikipedia needs to be reported, you should always feel free to do so. As to your first point, clearly Ferret does not agree with you any more than I do. -- Pemilligan (talk) 12:14, 17 August 2015 (UTC)

Publisher vs. work[edit]

In the case of websites, is really a work? is not italicized in its own article. --Jprg1966 (talk) 04:31, 28 January 2016 (UTC)

In this case, and Peace Corps Online are the websites, not the publishers. -- Pemilligan (talk) 01:21, 29 January 2016 (UTC)

Perhaps you can help[edit]


Perhaps you can help suggest relevant incoming links for Moveable Feast (organization) ?

Thanks very much for your ideas and input,

Cirt (talk) 00:33, 11 April 2016 (UTC)


Here's an explanation of the edits:

  • 1. Wikipedia pages are meant to document history, and the past. Keep in mind the school closed very recently (2016!)
  • 2. Even though the school is not in Alexandria proper it had a postal address of "Alexandria, Virginia" (8333 Richmond Highway Alexandria, VA 22309) so the average person is going to expect that it be there.

Readers expect such information in their articles and I do my best to fulfill that demand. WhisperToMe (talk) 02:34, 25 July 2016 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for September 8[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Bob Milacki, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Texas Rangers (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.
