Get it, James Monroe for ReyBrujo? Anyhow, keep up the good work on Wikipedia, you've contributed a lot of great edits. :D (another ackward attempt at comedy by TBCTaLk?!?)

Thanks

Thank you very much for helping me out with standards and whatnot. I'll get the hang of this stuff eventually, I suppose. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by AOEU (talkcontribs) .

Thanks

Rey, just wanted to say thanks for sticking with the WP:EL debate. We seem to be getting closer, and closer to a consensus as time goes by. I have updated my proposal based on your comment. I didn't think anything would succeed without a firm limit either :-). Please check it out and let me know if you find it a good comprimise. - mjg0503 04:07, 4 September 2006 (UTC)

lightsteelblue vs. orange

To get the ball rolling on the vote on studio albums, I've started a tally here please voice your opinion at your earliest convenience. --Cheers, Folajimi (leave a note) 21:49, 4 September 2006 (UTC)

The poll on the proposed switch has been open for ten days, and I have taken the liberty of closing the event. Consensus favors the switch to lightsteelblue.

ReyBrujo, your work over the past four months or so in support of this effort is greatly appreciated. Your actions were rather invaluable in implementing the idea of a standard framework, and I doubt that the template would have come into being so soon without you. For that, I am most grateful.

Many thanks for again for your involvement. See you around! --Cheers, Folajimi (leave a note) 16:00, 14 September 2006 (UTC)

Looking for a Template

Hey again Rey, I'm looking for info on a template which I can't name, hopefully you know, as I'm considering making one for Dragonlance. Here's an example: Template:Inheritance. If you can tell me the name and maybe provide a link on how to make them, then I can get right to work on making one for Dragonlance. Thanks! DoomsDay349 21:41, 6 September 2006 (UTC)

It's on my sandbox and also I'm gonna put it into Template namespace soon. Thanks. DoomsDay349 22:48, 6 September 2006 (UTC)

What guideline I was refering to

Wikipedia:Abundance and redundancy It is a preferred solution that material be included rather than excluded to resolve an edit war.

Guideline states in an edit war, information should be included rather than removed. I'd consider anything in clear violation of wikipolicy/guidelines vandalism, which is covered in the exception. Although after rereading the policy it says simple vandalism, and I am unsure if direct violation of policy falls under the simple category. I'll make sure not to state that exception again since I'd be streching the rules to make it. But I will enforce wikipolicies and guidelines.DeathSeeker 05:30, 7 September 2006 (UTC)

Succession box for dates

For an [http://www.currybet.net/articles/user_agents/2.php example] of what I am referring to, see the included link. It has a pair of links named "next page" and "prev page" at the top of the page. It may seem cheesy, but such a feature would make it easy to navigate a project I am working on relating to birthdays. In this case, "prev page" will link to the previous date, while "next page" should link to the day after the current page of birthdays. Let me know if this helps. --Cheers, Folajimi (leave a note) 21:52, 22 September 2006 (UTC)

Ben Underwood

I have removed the {{prod}} tag from Ben Underwood, which you proposed for deletion. I'm leaving this message here to notify you about it. I have nominated the article for deletion instead; the debate may be found at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Ben Underwood, which overrides the need for a {{prod}} tag. I have explained my reasons for doing this in my nomination. Thanks! Roninbk 10:31, 18 September 2006 (UTC)

Help

Hi... I was working on a page you found and you left a whole bunch of tags. I realize you might think you're helping by doing this, but some of my friends dont even know how to add the things you tagged about...so why don't you help out rather than telling other people to fix it? Surely to a wiki genius like yourself it would only take a second.

Hex values

Shouldn't be a problem. Glad the new template came off as planned. Rich Farmbrough, 21:39 18 September 2006 (GMT).

Incidentally removing background altogether is possible, but some other templates use the same parameter. Rich Farmbrough, 21:54 18 September 2006 (GMT).
Replied on the user's talk page. [21] -- ReyBrujo 22:07, 18 September 2006 (UTC)
Both the extra templates should be migratable. It is unfortunate that they both have background parameters, though, it makes things a little more complex, but still do-able. Rich Farmbrough, 22:24 18 September 2006 (GMT).
Replied on the user's talk page. [22] -- ReyBrujo 22:28, 18 September 2006 (UTC)
OK, that makes sense. I will try to do the hex values tomorrow, and the rest will take some time. Rich Farmbrough, 22:40 18 September 2006 (GMT).
All the hex backgrounds I could find should be done shortly. I have started removing other backgrounds from the infobox as well. I tried one of the "2" templates without a background parameter, it defaulted to yellow, so I'm not touching the extended stuff ATM. Rich Farmbrough, 22:43 19 September 2006 (GMT).

Confusion

Hey Rey. I was reading over a response you made to someone a while ago, I believe it was to Dragonball1986, in regard to uploading images on Wikipedia. While skimming this, I discovered this little tidbit: "the law says only 18 years old or older can write in wikis, but Wikipedia requests you to have 21". I was incredibly confused by this, as I was aware of no such restriction. Also, there are userboxes that allow you to list your status in school and also your age, and some of these userboxes are obviously meant for those under 21 (for example, one such userbox allows you to proclaim yourself a middle school student). Could you please clarify this? DoomsDay349 00:40, 19 September 2006 (UTC)

Replied on the user's talk page. [23] -- ReyBrujo 01:33, 19 September 2006 (UTC)
I understood that much, but what I was confused about was whether or not that was factual. Do you really have to be 18 or 21 or whatever to write on Wikipedia? DoomsDay349 20:19, 19 September 2006 (UTC)

Your removal of links in talk

You recently de-linked various links in Talk:Galactic Civilizations II: Dread Lords. I see no reason for doing so, and have reverted you, while preserving your header changes. If you intend to do this again, or to do it to other pages as I see you have been doing, please give a better explanation than "clean up web links log, thanks for understanding". I don't understand.

Replied on the user's talk page. [27] -- ReyBrujo 02:06, 20 September 2006 (UTC)
Your position is clear, but I disagree with doing so on talk pages. Those links were used in the discussion of the articles concerned. Removing them makes it harder for subsequent readers to follow the conversation. I doubt that the intent of any of those in were to promote the article on behalf of the site itself, but to draw editors' attention to the story, which happened to be on that site. Given that intent, it seems "right" that the link remain, even if it results in benefit to that site. Moreover, just because a site is a popular news aggregator does not mean it cannot have original content as well. I know of several interviews that have occurred on Slashdot, for example. Would links to these be removed? In some cases, the discussion on a particular site may itself be worthy of linking. Where, exactly, do you draw the line? GreenReaper 14:42, 20 September 2006 (UTC)

Brain Age

Yes, I definitely agree that BA is a highly successful franchise, but I think it's too new. A lot of articles that I thought would be important were rated lower than I expected, so I rate within the context of the articles already rated. For instance, in the handheld sections, most of them are mid-importance; to get a high rating, it seems, it has to be landmark, like Pokemon Red/Blue or Tetris (top importance). Most articles are just of mid-importance. If you still disagree, perhaps the CVG workshop will be there? I don't really nkow - I don't think there's a formal process for reviewing importance ratings.

Are they really necessary? I mean, linking to images about every attack in the series, seeing the amount of characters and attacks, may not be appropriate.

Weird English grammar

Hola ReyBrujo, I saw your comment on Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/0.999... and noticed that your English, which I have to say is very good, was slightly incorrect in the series of rhetorical questions you asked. In the phrase "Why we have featured articles about an anime character when only children know who he is?", the correct for would be "Why do we have...". I know, English can be stupid sometimes. Also, in "Why we have featured articles about a painting that probably very few know about its existence, lest see it?" I think you meant the last clause to be "much less see it". I don't mean to sound condescending, it's just that I would be grateful if someone corrected my Spanish on the Spanish-language Wikipedia. Overall, your knowledge of English vocabulary is extremely good; how long have you been speaking it? Supadawg (talkcontribs) 21:21, 29 September 2006 (UTC)

PUI discussion - re: iTV image

I've updated the discussion. After some consideration I believe the user, although I can see why you would have your doubts - he has uploaded a higher resolution version of the same image - and looking at the timestamp on the first upload of the image - it was uploaded to wikipedia before it was posted on the site you linked. A close inspection of the image, also gives away it's domestic rather than professional origins. If you don't have any objections I will de-list this image from WP:PUI in about 24 hours.
