Hello Piuro. I saw this morning that you have changed your position at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/William C. Rhodes. Just wanted to let you know that I respect you for having the guts to revise your opinion. Too many editors get stuck arguing a position and refuse to budge even when the situation changes. It has been my experience here that you will earn a much better reputation acting as you did instead. And don't let this incident intimidate you from nominating other articles for AfD. As you well know, there are many articles out there that should be deleted, and bold nominators like you are appreciated. Thanks for your efforts, and if you ever need any help at all, please don't hesitate to ask me or anyone else. -- Satori Son 13:04, 24 October 2006 (UTC)
- It would be worthless to continue the argument at this point, my primary issue with the article was completely and totally adressed. Piuro 19:00, 24 October 2006 (UTC)
I absolutely understand, and I hope you didn't think I was trying to start up a debate again. I was just trying to be supportive. Thanks again and have a good one! -- Satori Son 18:04, 25 October 2006 (UTC)
- No, don't worry, I understand. Had the article not been updated, I wouldnt have reversed my nomination. Im perfectally willing to admit when I was wrong, even if that situation was brought about after the fact. Piuro 18:07, 25 October 2006 (UTC)

Oops! Sorry! 'll go fix that now. Piuro 16:59, 25 October 2006 (UTC)
Just a word of advice: db-nonsense does not always fit every article that needs to be deleted. Some of the articles need db-empty or db-bio.Diez2 02:31, 27 October 2006 (UTC)
- Got it, which ones? There were a few I was having a hard time desiding between bio or nonsense... Piuro 02:32, 27 October 2006 (UTC)

Speedy Deletion tagging
Please be careful in tagging articles for speedy deletion. Neither Power 30 nor Pepsi Power Hour are eligible for speedy deletion (they were stubs about possibly notable Canadian cable TV shows), and they were clearly not patent nonsense as referred to in CSD:G1, which is limited to gibberish, random characters, or things that seem to be sentences but don't actually mean anything. These articles, for better or worse, were perfectly intelligible as describing two cable TV shows. That does not mean that they are necessarily good Wikipedia articles, but they're definitely not speedy deletes, either. Thanks, --MCB 03:29, 27 October 2006 (UTC)
- Thanks for your message on my talk page. Happy editing! --MCB 04:05, 27 October 2006 (UTC)
Hi. Thanks for starting this. Hope you don't mind, but I made some expansions to follow the conventions in other rpg wikiprojects. I think we should strive to be as uniform as possible. I think it'd be great if we could use sections for monster articles, for instance, similar to those used in the MMIV. Let me know what you think.--Robbstrd 22:55, 31 October 2006 (UTC)
- No, we should explicitly 'not' recreate monster stat blocks in D&D, go to the D&D talk page for more info on that. Piuro 00:03, 1 November 2006 (UTC)
D&D wiki project consensus
A call to all members of the D&D wiki project. We are currently having a major dispute that needs to be settled by all members of the D&D wiki project. The dispute is as follows. 1. Should we put disambiguation tags on D&D articles preemptively or should we wait until there is an article conflict with some other Wikipedia article. Vote on preemptive or wait.
2. What should we label these tags? Example "child's play (module)", or "child's play (adventure)" and at this point we are taking all suggestions.

EVE Online Economy
You mentioned on the EVE Online Talk Page that the EVE economy had been mentioned in magazines, I don't suppose you have any information about which magazine(s), volume numbers? dates? pages? I would really love to read these articles to be able to cite the economics section further. -- Richard Slater (Talk to me!) 17:06, 2 July 2007 (UTC)
Well done for actually kick starting this very relevent and very needed discussion. Hopefully we can get this sorted out now, and get a well structured, centralised set of articles on D&D monsters. J Milburn 11:11, 4 July 2007 (UTC)
Friedel disambiguation page conflict
Dear Piuro, you just reverted the Friedel disambiguation page. There is two points I wish to comment: 1. I agree, my wording was inappropriate and poorly chosen, simply because I was amazed of the incredible relationship between four people in direct lineage; 2. On the content of what I added, I am sure it is correct and I have gathered sufficient information I intend to further develop. I simply desired to make the link from this page.
See hereafter my proposal of new text to be more factual.
- Charles Friedel (1832-1899), French chemist known for the Friedel-Crafts reaction
- Georges Friedel (1865-1933), French crystallographer and mineralogist; son of Charles
- Edmond Friedel (1895-1972), French Polytechnician and mining engineer, founder of BRGM, the French geological survey; son of Georges
- Jacques Friedel, (1921-), French physicist; son of Edmond, see the French site for Jacques Friedel
I would be pleased to reorganize the Friedel disambiguation page in the way I was starting modifying it. So, I think it add an extra value to the page. Could you understand my viewpoint ? What is your opinion ? Thanks for your answer. Best regards.
- Piuro, Thank you for your answer on my talk page: I have taken into account your comments and reedited the disambiguation page without the unnecessary wording, just to emphasize the unexpected lineage between the four French scientists. Cheers, Shinkolobwe (talk) 17:45, 14 October 2008 (UTC)Shinkolobwe
I got your message. I was trying to test how to write stuff. After sufficent testing and removing what I added, I added some serious stuff to make the wording of the article better. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Fixanerror (talk • contribs) 04:00, 15 October 2008 (UTC)
Getting the hang of it
Where do the administrators argue? I heard there's a place that they fight in Wikipedia. I searched "Fight Board" and "Administator's Room" but that's obviously not the name to it because it did not show results. Fixanerror (talk) 03:01, 18 October 2008 (UTC)
WikiProject: Dungeons & Dragons
Hi! I’ve been working on a lot of ‘’Dungeons & Dragons’’ articles lately and saw that you were a member of WikiProject Dungeons & Dragons), and am inviting you to rejoin Wikipedia’s D&D group. I've been hard at work removing tags placed inappropriately on D&D articles, as well as modifying articles to remove tags that were placed legitimately. In addition, I have been compiling related articles together so that the articles are longer, making it easier to remove tags and to have short articles on lesser topics by just putting it into another appropriate article (links to such compiled articles can be found on my userpage). Check out the project here , and ask any questions that you may have here. Thank you for your time. Drilnoth (talk) 20:54, 7 November 2008 (UTC)
