Institute For Independent Business[edit]

Hi. At the time of deletion, the article was only a link with not much else. To create a page, please check first if the topic is notable (See: Wikipedia:Notability, probably also Wikipedia:Notability (companies and corporations)). E.g. The club, society, or organization has been the subject of multiple non-trivial published works whose source is independent of the club, society, or organization itself Are there e.g. New York times articles about the institute? If the topic is not notable for an encyclopedia article, it will probably be deleted again. Also, if you are closely involved with the organization, please be aware that it is considered bad form to write about your own company/products, etc. If you still find that the topic is notable, please include links and references about its notability in the article. I hope this helps -- Chris 73 | Talk 14:24, 13 January 2007 (UTC)

I am afraid there is not really grace period, as our new page patrol judges the article by its current status. But, I would suggest you work out the article on a e.g. text file on your computer, maybe using the Wikipedia preview function, and post the article when it is done. Hope this helps -- Chris 73 | Talk 14:33, 13 January 2007 (UTC)
I added a notability tag to the article, meaning that based from the info in the article, I am not yet convinced if it is encyclopedic. However, this gives you some more time to work on the article to find citations etc. Also, I forgot: You can also prepare an article in your own userspace, e.g. at User:Robinson weijman/Work, and then copy it to the real article after you are done. Just a suggestion -- Chris 73 | Talk 14:43, 13 January 2007 (UTC)

AfD Nomination: Software Test Techniques[edit]

An editor has nominated the article Software Test Techniques for deletion, under the Articles for deletion process. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe it satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and has explained why in the nomination (also see What Wikipedia is not and Deletion policy). Your opinions on why the topic of the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome: participate in the discussion by editing Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Software Test Techniques. Add four tildes like this ˜˜˜˜ to sign your comments. You can also edit the article Software Test Techniques during the discussion, but do not remove the "Articles for Deletion" template (the box at the top of the article), this will not end the deletion debate.

Re: Transformers film[edit]

I had used the information given in the press releases for the article. Wiki-newbie 19:41, 12 February 2007 (UTC)

Hey, no sweat. Next time try and find new information from an article, and if there's nothing new, just dismiss it as puff promotion. Wiki-newbie 21:32, 12 February 2007 (UTC)

On Bonney Eberndu[edit]

I've now expanded this article and made its assertion of notability clearer. I wasn't the original author and had never heard of him before the page came up for AfD, but anyone who had four separate articles on him in the UK press automatically passes WP:BIO, as it constitutes multiple non-trivial coverage in independent sources. So are you now satisfied with the state of the article, or do you still believe it should be deleted? Walton monarchist89 15:08, 22 February 2007 (UTC)

SuggestBot picks articles in a number of ways based on other articles you've edited, including straight text similarity, following wikilinks, and matching your editing patterns against those of other Wikipedians. It tries to recommend only articles that other Wikipedians have marked as needing work. Your contributions make Wikipedia better -- thanks for helping.

If you have feedback on how to make SuggestBot better, please tell me on SuggestBot's talk page. Thanks from ForteTuba, SuggestBot's caretaker.

P.S. You received these suggestions because your name was listed on the SuggestBot request page. If this was in error, sorry about the confusion. -- SuggestBot 18:44, 25 February 2007 (UTC)

Edit to my userpage[edit]

No worries, thanks for letting me know!--Phil500 (Talk / Contribs) 07:13, 27 February 2007 (UTC)

Barnstar[edit]

Appreciate you talking back regarding the Barnstar award. You are too modest in saying your contributions were not as significant. You did contribute to the following articles

Your contributions for the above articles and healthy debate (read as - knowledge sharing with peer wiki editors) deserve appreciation. --Pinecar 00:17, 4 March 2007 (UTC)

PROFTEST[edit]

Read the test, it's rather straightforward. It's just my opinion. If you disagree, feel free to opine to the contrary. - NYC JD (interrogatories) 12:43, 15 March 2007 (UTC)

Dreamtone[edit]

Yes, I deleted the page as a copyright violation. If you add {{subst:afd}} to an article and it already has a previous AfD (the "this article's entry" link is blue), then remove the AfD template and replace it with {{subst:afdx|2nd}} instead. If it already has a 2nd AfD, use {{subst:afdx|3rd}}, and so on. Resurgent insurgent 2007-04-17 10:55Z

Disappearance of Madeleine McCann[edit]

I have indeed removed the external link from the article. It wasn't the first time it was added, and it wasn't the first time it was removed either. Please read our external links policy and the discussion on Talk:Disappearance of Madeleine McCann#HelpfindMaddie site. The wiki-site is a private initiative and as such holds no official status and is not related to the search. That is why I have removed it from the article. AecisBrievenbus 19:27, 26 May 2007 (UTC)

HelpFindMaddie badge[edit]

This is Cris from http://helpfindmaddie.wiki-site.com. I'm trying to promote Maddie search and came up with this badge to be inserted in Wikipedia user pages. Can you put it in yours? What do you think? Thanks.

Sorry, was adding a comment about use of the badge as below, but must have deleted my mistake. Harry was a white dog with black spots 20:15, 5 June 2007 (UTC)

Fair-use[edit]

Fair-use images such as Image:Maddie.jpg are only permitted in articles, not on user pages. I had to remove it from yours, sorry. --Yamla 16:13, 4 June 2007 (UTC)

Edit summary[edit]

When editing an article on Wikipedia there is a small field labeled "Edit summary" under the main edit-box. It looks like this:

Edit summary text box

The text written here will appear on the Recent changes page, in the page revision history, on the diff page, and in the watchlists of users who are watching that article. See m:Help:Edit summary for full information on this feature.

Filling in the edit summary field greatly helps your fellow contributors in understanding what you changed, so please always fill in the edit summary field, especially for big edits or when you are making subtle but important changes, like changing dates or numbers. Thank you. TerriersFan 16:03, 28 June 2007 (UTC)

Fair point. I do try to enter information when relevant, as you will have seen, but for minor points I don't. I must admit to being a bit taken aback by your comment. Sure, I could improve, but I'm not doing badly. I guess I'm just disappointed that, after a lot of work, I only get criticism and not thanks. Please reply on my page. Robinson weijman 18:13, 28 June 2007 (UTC)
Hi, this template is not intended as criticism but as an explanation as to why the use of edit summaries is helpful. I, for one, appreciate your contributions but giving each other thanks is something that we are bad at and should do more often. TerriersFan 21:29, 28 June 2007 (UTC)

Meta 4[edit]

Hello there! Thanks for contributing to the article. However, I have undone your change. The formatting there was used so that the brackets would display around Planet of the Apes, as well as it being wikilinked to the film article. The visible brackets are necessary, as he didn't say exactly that, he said "it", but was referring to the film (see source). It is a little bit wonky, but if you have a better solution let me know. Jujutacular T · C 13:45, 30 June 2010 (UTC)

Hi Jujutacular - I've made a change because you do not need the nowiki tags. Also I think you need to say "it" to specify why the square brackets are there. Undo if you don't like it. --Robinson weijman (talk) 14:02, 30 June 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for the change - the way I did it, you do need the nowiki tags, but the way you did it they aren't needed. As for including "it" - I would say it's unnecessary, as brackets are commonly used in this fashion to replace a pronoun that would otherwise be unintelligible out of context. See WP:MOSQUOTE. Jujutacular T · C 14:28, 30 June 2010 (UTC)
OK, thanks. --Robinson weijman (talk) 14:54, 30 June 2010 (UTC)

Hi, and thanks for the support! I'd really appreciated it if you could show your support by logging into Area51 and pressing the "Follow it!" button. Encouraging your friends would help too...

Running over with a car?[edit]

hello, In the article juicing?! on August the 11th I edited out the word testicles. I have never "added" content to the article to my knowledge. l santry (talk) 18:22, 13 February 2011 (UTC)

The link I sent you implies otherwise. I suspect it was a copy / paste issue? --Robinson weijman (talk) 10:57, 11 March 2011 (UTC)

Notification: changes to "Mark my edits as minor by default" preference[edit]

Hello there. This is an automated message to tell you about the gradual phasing out of the preference entitled "Mark all edits minor by default", which you currently have (or very recently had) enabled.

On 13 March 2011, this preference was hidden from the user preferences screen as part of efforts to prevent its accidental misuse (consensus discussion). This had the effect of locking users in to their existing preference, which, in your case, was true. To complete the process, your preference will automatically be changed to false in the next few days. This does not require any intervention on your part and you will still be able to manually mark your edits as being 'minor'. The only thing that's changed is that you will no longer have them marked as minor by default.

For established users such as yourself there is a workaround available involving custom JavaScript. If you are familiar with the contents of WP:MINOR, and believe that it is still beneficial to the encyclopedia to have all your edits marked as such by default, then this discussion will give you the details you need to continue with this functionality indefinitely. If you have any problems, feel free to drop me a note.

Thank you for your understanding and happy editing :) Editing on behalf of User:Jarry1250, LivingBot (talk) 18:31, 14 March 2011 (UTC)
