What ho, old pip![edit]

Just to let you know that your edit summaries bring a smile to my face. Deor (talk) 00:22, 7 September 2011 (UTC)

Commas have their uses, old boy[edit]

A little bit of digging into the old topsoil suggests there isn't one old chap

  • I was tempted to retort that there are indeed many old chaps, but wondered what this fascinating emerging discussion about the number of old chaps had to do with the OP's question.

... any connection would be very distant old boy

  • Here, you had me wondering about why you're talking about very distant old boys. Are you such a person yourself?

Then I read your user page:

This Wikipedia thing is a bit of lark what!

  • What is a "lark what"? You probably meant to write This Wikipedia thing is a bit of lark, what!

I'm happy to do my bit to help out so let's get stuck in chaps!

  • Getting stuck in chaps is something the Grenadier Guards were wont to do, old bean. Is this what you want all of us to do? I for one wouldn't mind too much at all, depending on the other chaps involved, of course, but I'm sure many of my friends and associates would take extreme umbrage at such an unorthodox suggestion, old fruit. Toodle pip. -- Jack of Oz [your turn] 01:16, 13 September 2011 (UTC)

A cup of tea for you![edit]

Disambiguation link notification for March 12[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited Crufts, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Dog show (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.

Spanner in the works[edit]

[1] It's a great shame we are not supposed to link to YT. Yes, it's a bit dated, yes there's some canned laughter. But that really is very clever and (still) funny. I was hoping to find a date, but alas no. Is that Les Dennis on the end? Regards. Martinevans123 (talk) 21:56, 16 June 2012 (UTC)

Thank you so much. The Spanners At Christmas also very good. But not a patch on the acidic "We're a Folk Group". Les Dennis, Dustin Gee and Jeffrey Holland (Spike from HiDiHi). I'm sure it was more fashionable to like Ben Elton and Alexei Sayle in the 80s. But that is a real gem. Martinevans123 (talk) 22:39, 16 June 2012 (UTC)

Categories at Allegiance (musical)[edit]

Greetings, your article Allegiance (musical) dropped into the bin, so I added some categories to it to rescue it. Don't forget to apply categories to each new article you start. MatthewVanitas (talk) 20:25, 14 September 2012 (UTC)

Request for Comment[edit]

Does WP:SIGCOV apply to bio of career defending people on death row? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/Log/2012_December_17#Stephen_Aarons — Preceding unsigned comment added by Aar095 (talkcontribs) 07:50, 21 December 2012 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (File:Crufts Logo.jpg)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:Crufts Logo.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Hazard-Bot (talk) 04:28, 11 March 2013 (UTC)

File:Rear of the Year logo.gif missing description details[edit]

Dear uploader: The media file you uploaded as:

is missing a description and/or other details on its image description page. If possible, please add this information. This will help other editors make better use of the image, and it will be more informative to readers.

If the information is not provided, the image may eventually be proposed for deletion, a situation which is not desirable, and which can easily be avoided.

If you have any questions, please see Help:Image page. Thank you. Theo's Little Bot (error?) 05:05, 14 April 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for October 20[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help.

I orphaned the image by way of removing it from World of Warships, which already has the image File:World of Warships cover art.png which contains this logo, making this second image redundant. --Hammersoft (talk) 17:48, 10 March 2015 (UTC)

Joe Francis[edit]

Hi. Regarding your edit here. I don't think that a list of criminal convictions can be classified as "legal issues", particularly when they relate entirely to the what made him known, his businesses, and what made them successful. Omitting this from the lead would mislead the reader to important aspects of his notability. I'd tend to agree with you otherwise, had the "legal issues" been unrelated to his work, and there not been quite so many of them. Everything I added to the lead is also from the sources used in the article. --Escape Orbit (Talk) 16:35, 19 June 2015 (UTC)
