Elise Matthesen[edit]

Please pass on to Elise that Ben Burch sends his regards. Thank you so much. --BenBurch 21:08, 17 November 2006 (UTC)


Thanks for editing Wikipedia. Please be aware of our guidelines on conflict of interest and autobiography, WP:COI and WP:AUTO. Editors are strongly discouraged from editing articles about themselves, their organizations, and other topics in which they may be assumed to have a conflict. It is entirely appropriate to use the article talk pages to point out errors or omissions for other editors to correct. -Will Beback · · 23:07, 1 May 2007 (UTC)

James D. Nicoll[edit]

Thanks for your input, I hope we can now encourage you to expand the article with some of the information you evidently have at your fingertips. Some references to publications would be good, I'm sure you can cite issue and page with no problem whatsoever. Also thanks for the belly-laugh; uncharitable though it may be, it is very very amusing to see an acknowledged world authority challenged to provide a source for an assertion of notability! Of course, in the end, there was a grain of a point to it, in that we can't take anyone's word for stuff in article space (not even yours, I guess) but it was a moment of surreal comedy which brightened several people's day.

I left a comment on Cory Doctorow's talk page which should be of some interest to you, Mr Hayden. DS 16:29, 30 May 2007 (UTC)

The article TransAtlantic Fan Fund has been nominated for deletion[edit]

Thought you might want to weigh in on the topic. --Orange Mike 15:46, 1 August 2007 (UTC)

Ace books[edit]

Thanks for the fix to the dates for Terry Carr's freelance editorial period at Ace Books. Do you happen to have a source for that? I'd like to keep the article sourced fully if I can; I think what you replaced had a question mark because I was unable to find a definitive source originally. Also thanks for removing the assertion that Doherty was an editor at Ace -- not sure how that got in there; the web pages cited don't support it. Mike Christie (talk) 02:16, 14 May 2009 (UTC)

Mike, the only sources I have to support changing Terry Carr's "freelance editorial period at Ace Books" from "1984-1988" to "1983-1987" are (1) personal acquaintance with Terry Carr and (2) the exercise of pure reason. To expand on (2), first, Terry died on April 7, 1987, as stated and sourced in the Wikipedia article about Terry Carr, so it seems unlikely that he continued to work as a freelance editor at Ace until 1988. Second, the first of Ace's "New Ace Science Fiction Specials, Edited by Terry Carr", namely, The Wild Shore by Kim Stanley Robinson, was published in March 1984. (See There is no way this book could have appeared in March 1984 (which means books coming off press and first appearing on retail shelves in February 1984) if Carr's period as a freelance editor for Ace began in 1984; in fact, it began in early 1983.

That makes sense. Your personal knowledge is obviously the underlying source here, but since other editors can't necessarily consult you for the information it's nice to have something I can cite. I'll put something together. Thanks -- Mike Christie (talk) 08:15, 14 May 2009 (UTC)
I've made the change, but it occurred to me you might know of others who have worked at Ace who are notable enough to have their own Wikipedia article. If you do, could you let me know? Again it would be best to have an independent source, if you know of one. Thanks -- Mike Christie (talk) 08:29, 14 May 2009 (UTC)

Notification: changes to "Mark my edits as minor by default" preference[edit]

Hello there. This is an automated message to tell you about the gradual phasing out of the preference entitled "Mark all edits minor by default", which you currently have enabled.

On 13 March 2011, this preference was hidden from the user preferences screen as part of efforts to prevent its accidental misuse (consensus discussion). This had the effect of locking users in to their existing preference, which, in your case, was true. To complete the process, your preference will automatically be changed to false in the next few days. This does not require any intervention on your part and you will still be able to manually mark your edits as being 'minor'. The only thing that's changed is that you will no longer be able to have them marked as minor by default. For more information on what a minor edit is, see WP:MINOR or feel to get in touch.

Thank you for your understanding and happy editing :) Editing on behalf of User:Jarry1250, LivingBot (talk) 20:31, 13 March 2011 (UTC)

The article about you[edit]

Yet another disemvowelled single-purpose account popped up with a hate-on against you. They've been reverted and blocked. --Orange Mike | Talk 23:14, 29 April 2011 (UTC)

Good to see your initials pop up here[edit]

I'd really be better off spending more time writing paid reviews and less time here: this might be worse than fandom as an addictive way to waste one's energies and time (albeit our cons are better). I'm still thinking of loccing that zine I picked up at a con, which y'all published while still working as social workers in Seattle (if I can find it).--Orange Mike | Talk 15:15, 11 January 2013 (UTC)

Charles the Simple‎[edit]

Sorry, I missed that change in the article. Thanks for correcting it. --Kansas Bear (talk) 02:45, 19 March 2014 (UTC)

The Just City[edit]

Good point re: the reviews; the reason those were the only ones included is that those were the only ones I could find when I wrote the article back in November of last year.

I've expanded the Reception section as per your suggestion. Best to Teresa. DS (talk) 01:29, 6 March 2015 (UTC)
