Hi. I think you were rather hasty to tag this article as empty the same minute it was created. I know new users ought to realise that they should flesh their article out before they press "Save page", but many of them don't, and are discouraged if a speedy notice appears as soon as they put in their first try. We get quite a bit of flak for presenting an unfriendly interface to newcomers. With something like this, better to give it say 10 minutes and see if it is going somewhere before tagging it. Keep up the good work though - New Page Patrol needs all they eyes it can get, and most of your tags I have seen have been fine. Regards, JohnCD (talk) 16:43, 5 January 2010 (UTC)

Sorry, I thought I checked the creation time on that, but the times still mess me up. I do try to check the creation time if it appears that the article is incomplete. Thanks for telling me! PrincessofLlyr (talk) 18:08, 5 January 2010 (UTC)

WikiProject Warriors

Hello, PrincessofLlyr! I'd like to invite you to join the WikiProject Warriors. We work on improving Warriors articles and would appreciate your help. Cheers! Brambleclawx 00:07, 6 January 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the invite! I joined, but I'll probably stick more to grammar fixes. Happy editing! PrincessofLlyr (talk) 02:02, 6 January 2010 (UTC)

Doesn't matter what you do, as long as its constructive, I am going to feel so happy. ;) Now... one more person and we're in the double digits of active users... hm... =) Brambleclawx 02:09, 6 January 2010 (UTC)

One more thing: if you have time, try to help copyedit Warriors (novel series); I want to nominate it for GA sometime around thursday. Brambleclawx 02:13, 6 January 2010 (UTC)

I'll try, but I'm pretty busy this week. I'll take a look though! PrincessofLlyr (talk) 02:41, 6 January 2010 (UTC)

Question

Hey im trying to help with a wikiproject and on one i need to know the proper format for an inforbox for a person. Thanks! —Preceding unsigned comment added by Deadlyops (talkcontribs) 00:37, 10 January 2010 (UTC)

First, please follow proper talk page etiquette by starting a new section and signing your posts. About infoboxes, see Template:Infobox person or Wikipedia:WikiProject Biography/Infoboxes. Which WikiProject are you working with? Welcome to Wikipedia and happy editing! PrincessofLlyr (talk) 00:43, 10 January 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion contested: Neild Avenue

Hello PrincessofLlyr, and thanks for patrolling new pages! I am just letting you know that I contested the speedy deletion of Neild Avenue, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: A7 does not apply to houses. You may wish to review the Criteria for Speedy Deletion before tagging further pages. Thank you. Timotheus Canens (talk) 04:03, 9 January 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the notice -I did wonder about that, but it seemed pointless to prod an article about an obviously unnotable subject. I will be more careful in the future. PrincessofLlyr (talk) 04:10, 9 January 2010 (UTC)
Please be extra-cautious when using the speedy tag; if no criteria fits, please PROD or AfD. I know it's kind of silly, but it avoids potential misunderstandings (e.g. "is this house now anthropomorphic?"). Airplaneman talk 06:12, 9 January 2010 (UTC)
Yes, after several various warnings I'm getting the idea! I guess the practical side of me just sees an obviously useless article and wants to get rid of it as quickly as possible! But I am trying to be very careful now. PrincessofLlyr (talk) 22:52, 9 January 2010 (UTC)
Yea, same here. I think you can manually add {{db|your reason}} for random stuff. Airplaneman talk 05:39, 10 January 2010 (UTC)

Warriors: Reply

To reply to your comment on my page, according to the MoS, fiction should always be in present tense, with relatively few exceptions. I'll go find and fix that example you foundl, but I'm pretty sure I went through the tense for most of the article, but yeah, when I was looking at that sentence, I had a hard time thinking of which words I was supposed to use. Thanks. Brambleclawx 22:08, 7 January 2010 (UTC)

Thanks! I'll also go through the article and see if I notice any more. Tense messes me up sometimes too! Oh, for future reference, I prefer to keep a discussion on one talk page, so you could have replied on your talk. I automatically watch it, so I'll see the reply. I'm still working out a notice for my talk informing people of that! PrincessofLlyr (talk) 22:19, 7 January 2010 (UTC)

Oh alright I'll remember, that for later. Brambleclawx 22:24, 7 January 2010 (UTC)

You undid someone's revision on the Warriors page where they said Warriors was superior to Twilight... I laughed so hard when I saw that. Must be the first time someone's said that out loud! XD Brambleclawx 20:05, 9 January 2010 (UTC)

Well, I certainly agreed with them, but it broke so many of Wiki's policies that I couldn't possibly leave it in there. Still, that's a pretty bold statement! I don't go out of my way to try and offend people that like Twilight, but I make it no secret that I don't! PrincessofLlyr (talk) 22:50, 9 January 2010 (UTC)

Yes, I agreed too. XD Brambleclawx 17:37, 10 January 2010 (UTC)

Article class

I think I'm not the only one who's having doubts about this, but do you think Erin Hunter should be counted as a disambiguation article? It doesn;t look like one to me, but at the same time, its impractical to call it an article on its own. Brambleclawx 00:26, 11 January 2010 (UTC)

Sorry, I'm not sure if I understand the problem. Pulling up the regular article shows it as a stub-class article. Erin Hunter (disambiguation) redirects to Erin Hunter. Honestly, I don't think it should be disambig because Erin Hunter is a legitimate pseudonym. That group of writers is Erin Hunter. That's my take, but this is probably one of those technical things that I'm not good at, so if you want to try and explain it further... PrincessofLlyr (talk) 16:09, 11 January 2010 (UTC)

At Talk:Erin Hunter, the WikiProject Warriors banner lists it as a disambiguation class article. But I'm not sure if it can be counted as a disambig. Brambleclawx 23:36, 11 January 2010 (UTC)

Okay, I understand now. I would say it's an article; it explains a pseudonym, including the works and references. Now, for the more important question: Can one of us change the listing or should we make a request to WikiProject Novels? I am a member of WikiProject Novels so technically I could do it, but that might not be ethical! It appears, and I could be wrong, but it appears that the article was formerly strictly a disambig linking to the various authors' pages. Actually, I just looked at the history, and that is the case. It was originally written with very little info other than links. So I think we could argue for a change in the rating. I would probably agree with the WikiProject Children's literature rating as stub, maybe start-class. Also, WikiProject Warriors hasn't rated it. We can do that. PrincessofLlyr (talk) 00:38, 12 January 2010 (UTC)

Actually, we have rated it, but for us, disambig just shows up as N/A. But yeah, I'll change it, since it looks appropriate. Brambleclawx 01:43, 13 January 2010 (UTC)

Shattered Peace

A user has created this page. I know we're all busy, but it'd be useful if we could all chip in a bit, since it looks quite deletable right now. Brambleclawx 21:54, 14 January 2010 (UTC)

GA

Of course! As a reviewer, you are also quite integral to the GA's success. I would suggest that when you give a review, you also give a copyedit and report the mistakes in terms of content or understanding. It goes with WP:BOLD. bibliomaniac15 03:58, 19 January 2010 (UTC)

Thanks! I will keep that in mind for future reviews. PrincessofLlyr (talk) 04:18, 19 January 2010 (UTC)

Sandbox

I was instructed there to tell you... about this :D. It was really minor, hope you don't mind. Airplaneman talk 07:49, 21 January 2010 (UTC)

That's fine! You count as one of the people I've invited to edit there. It's just if some editor I've never worked with comes in and starts changing stuff that I want to know. Cheers! PrincessofLlyr (talk) 14:32, 21 January 2010 (UTC)

Articles about schools are specifically exempt from CSD A7

Greetings! I noticed that you placed a CSD A7 tag on the page Kanaka creek elm, which is an article about a school. I just wanted to inform you that per WP:CSD#A7, articles about schools are exempt from CSD A7. However, rather than declining speedy deletion altogether, I have re-tagged the page under CSD A1 because it appears to lack sufficient context to identify the subject of the article. Cheers! --SoCalSuperEagle (talk) 20:41, 22 January 2010 (UTC)

Thank you for the notice; I will be more careful about tagging in the future. I'm still a bit iffy on all the csd criteria (and non-criteria), even though I've read multiple articles about it. Sorry for the inaccuracy. PrincessofLlyr (talk) 22:53, 22 January 2010 (UTC)

AfD nomination of 15 Minutes (novel)

Ambox warning pn.svg

An editor has nominated 15 Minutes (novel), an article which you have created or worked on, for deletion. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also "What Wikipedia is not").

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/15 Minutes (novel) and please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also edit the article during the discussion to address the nominator's concerns but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate. Thank you. Drmies (talk) 17:23, 23 January 2010 (UTC)
