Could you explain...[edit]

...how you think I vandalized the Johnny Cash entry? Torgman1 (talk) 23:36, 8 October 2009 (UTC)

Uh, I never flagged it as abuse. RepublicanJacobite flagged whatever edits were done after mine as abuse. Red dwarf (talk) 11:50, 10 October 2009 (UTC)

Newfoundland and Labrador WikiProject[edit]

There’s now a WikiProject for Newfoundland and Labrador. We hope you’ll join us in making Wikipedia a great source of information about the province and its people. OzLawyer 17:55, 9 June 2006 (UTC)

Travel costs and science fiction fandom[edit]

If you read accounts of early 20th century fannish life as enshrined in the early fanzines, you will see that the high cost of travel (by 21st-century standards) was quite relevant to how fan culture developed. --Orange Mike | Talk 18:51, 24 April 2008 (UTC)

This is true. I had thought the last part of the sentence previous to the one I deleted ("or when one of them could manage a trip") covered the fact that travel was costlier during the early 20th society. As such, I had deleted it. However, upon reflection, the sentence should have stayed. I was not trying to undermine the article, nor was I trying to under-appreciate what fans did to meet up. Sorry if it appeared so. Red dwarf (talk) 21:01, 24 April 2008 (UTC)
No big. They Were Jiants In Those Days. About the only ones left are Jack Speer, Forry and Art Widner, and none is in good health (although Art's still chipper when I see him). --Orange Mike | Talk 21:45, 24 April 2008 (UTC)
It will be sad when they eventually go to the other side. They will be missed, and their legacy will live on. Although it's nice Art's still in good spirits! Red dwarf (talk) 22:07, 25 April 2008 (UTC)

Articles for deletion nomination of Snook (comedian)[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

I have nominated Snook (comedian), an article that you created, for deletion. I do not think that this article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and have explained why at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Snook (comedian). Your opinions on the matter are welcome at that same discussion page; also, you are welcome to edit the article to address these concerns. Thank you for your time.

Please contact me if you're unsure why you received this message. — Coren (talk) 02:06, 5 November 2009 (UTC)

Yeah[edit]

Yeah, I usually just fix spelling mistakes, add music video tables to artist discographies, or add pictures to singles, artists, bands, or albums. Like Spacehog didn't have an artist picture, so I added one. This Too Shall Pass by OK Go didn't have a single cover on its page, so I added one. Beck's discography didn't have a music video table, so I created one. (It took me at least 2 hours to find the pattern in the markup.) —Preceding unsigned comment added by GrantyO (talkcontribs) 00:31, 23 May 2010 (UTC)

    • Cool, cool. Most of the pages I go to have sufficient pictures... I've noticed some of the Wiki pages I've stumbled across do not have tables at the bottom. I should contribute more of those, really. Two hours to find the pattern?! Red dwarf (talk) 00:59, 23 May 2010 (UTC)
      • Yeah, some of the wiki markup is really crazy like rowspan="1"|blank. —Preceding unsigned comment added by GrantyO (talkcontribs) 01:32, 23 May 2010 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for August 4[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Jinn, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Castle in the Air. 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.

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 09:41, 4 August 2014 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
