Be bold.svg

Hello. My name is Philip Terry Graham! I am an avid Wikipedia contributor, with over 12,500 edits, 132 new pages, and 5 years of service to my record. I started out contributing to music-related articles, in which I have the most experience in. Though, since then I've moved on to other subjects, such as astronomy, politics, video games and transport, amongst other things. Morally, I am not an editor who does his best to follow the rules, and can and will break rules in the name of a better Wikipedia. I also help to maintain an easy-to-navigate and easy to read graphic design for all articles. If I see an article that I'm interested in and it's a complete mess, I'm there to fix it! This is my talk page, so if you want to bring up a discussion about my edits, articles I maintain or other things I do on Wikipedia, be sure to click "New Section" at the top of the page and start writing! Discussions will be moved to the archive after four months without reply. Stay bold, people!

(August 13, 2016) Comment: Olympics articles[edit]

Hello. I noticed that you reverted the removal of pictures from this article several times simply because the removals were not explained with edit sumaries. I wish to.point you to WP:BRD; you were bold and added the pictures and that was reverted, which means that it was then your responsibility to begin discussion on the talk page. Please also be aware that while edit summaries are helpful, they are not required. Happy editing! — Jkudlick • t • c • s 03:54, 13 August 2016 (UTC)

@Jkudlick: It isn't only that page, though, it's across literally tens of many articles that both users are reverting. I don't know where I would start a discussion. Would it be appropriate of me to bring the discussion to the talk page of Wikipedia:WikiProject Olympics, instead of any one individual article's talk page, perhaps? Philip Terry Graham 05:52, 13 August 2016 (UTC)
Yes, that would be the most appropriate place to go to begin discussion, just as WT:FOOTY is where people go for issues with multiple football articles. Cheers! — Jkudlick • t • c • s 00:22, 15 August 2016 (UTC)

(August 18, 2016) GA nomination of Thick as Thieves (The Temper Trap album)[edit]

Hi there, I'm pleased to inform you that I've begun reviewing the article Thick as Thieves (The Temper Trap album) you nominated for GA-status according to the criteria. Time2wait.svg This process may take up to 7 days. Feel free to contact me with any questions or comments you might have during this period. Message delivered by Legobot, on behalf of Shaidar cuebiyar -- Shaidar cuebiyar (talk) 00:41, 18 August 2016 (UTC)

My 1st run through has been completed. You have seven days to address the issues raised. Have fun.shaidar cuebiyar (talk) 10:39, 27 August 2016 (UTC)
@Shaidar cuebiyar: Cool! I'll be working to implement your suggested changes and discussing starting tonight. Thanks for your work, by the way! n.n Philip Terry Graham 13:06, 27 August 2016 (UTC)
Unfortunately your problems with editing at wikipedia have resulted in a fail, without prejudice, of this GA. When you feel up to taking up the issues I've raised and completing them to an acceptable standard then you should renominate it for GA.shaidar cuebiyar (talk) 03:30, 9 September 2016 (UTC)

The article Thick as Thieves (The Temper Trap album) you nominated as a good article has failed Symbol oppose vote.svg; see Talk:Thick as Thieves (The Temper Trap album) for reasons why the nomination failed. If or when these points have been taken care of, you may apply for a new nomination of the article.

Re: Template:Features and artificial objects on Mars[edit]

Hi Philip. You recently made some pretty major changes at {{Features and artificial objects on Mars}}. I had to revert those changes because it so fundamentally altered the original template. The original template was intended for inline display within the article, similar to the Mars Quads and Ceres Quads templates; you changed this to be a navbox for display at the bottom. This fundamentally alters the functionality of the template, which shouldn't be done. You took a small size image--again, for use within the body of an article--and make it enormous. Throwing such huge images into an article is never appropriate, even in navbox form, because we have to design for a wide variety of screen sizes, even mobile phones. Beyond all that, you removed functionality. Rather than asking previous contributors directly for help, or even just asking on the template's talk page, you simply made wholesale changes.

Now, please do not take this as me berating for fussing at you about this. You were bold, and that's fine. I simply want to elaborate on why such changes are not appropriate. We'll work to somehow fit Schiaparelli into the map, since I see that was one of your design goals. Huntster (t @ c) 23:54, 23 October 2016 (UTC)
