Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of jesters[edit]

I went ahead and corrected your formatting for this AFD. Your rationale seems sound; I left it alone and just tinkered with the formatting. I also listed it at the AFD log, so that it will show up on the list of debates. In that way, other editors who might not care about Jesters themselves but who review AFDs can come and give their opinion on this debate. If you have any questions about what I did or why, please leave me a note on my talk page. Thanks! UltraExactZZ Said ~ Did 12:44, 15 October 2012 (UTC)

October 2012[edit]

Hello, I'm SQGibbon. I noticed that you made a change to an article, Jester, but you didn't provide a reliable source. I’ve removed it for now, but if you’d like to include a citation and re-add it, please do so! If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. SQGibbon (talk) 16:55, 15 October 2012 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited List of jugglers, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Alex Barron and Steve Mills (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.

Jester/Fools[edit]

Hi, I wonder if I could ask your advice, please? I noticed that you keep an eye on the Jester article and you mentioned on the talk page about possibly doing an article on 'Fools' so thought you might be the best person to ask! I've been playing around with an article for Jamie Fleeman, the Laird of Udny's Fool and he is frequently described as the "last family jester in Scotland". I think the article is getting near ready to be moved from my draft to main space. Do you feel it would be appropriate to include a link under the 'Notable jesters' section of the Jester article? SagaciousPhil - Chat 09:50, 26 September 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for such a fast response! I've moved it to main space and added it to jester and the list of Jesters as well - now I'll see if I can come up with a DYK hook for it. SagaciousPhil - Chat 18:25, 26 September 2013 (UTC)

Washington Monument[edit]

Sorry it took me a while to get back to you on this discussion. You may be right about how the Washington Monument isn't the tallest obelisk in the world and I know that Wikipedia shouldn't be used as a reference itself, however Wikipedia shouldn't contradict itself or be redundant. Giving two different facts on the same topic in an encyclopedia isn't right. It needs to be either one or the other. And the San Jacinto Monument article names it as a column. So there are some really contradicting articles here and I want to get this right. Leoesb1032 (talk) 16:30, 29 August 2014 (UTC)

Dan Bahat[edit]

Robyn, I hoped this could be avoided. There is a system introduced by Wikipedia where a term of larger interest, which does not have an article yet (no contradiction there, it happens a lot), is introduced nevertheless and it appears in red, signalling that it needs to be addressed. This system usually works, somebody sees it, "What, no article yet?!", takes the time and deals with it. The more "red flags", the more likely it is to happen. It is part of Wikipedia. On the very page you keep on stubbornly deleting this tiny detail, there are two more "red flags" which don't seem to bother you - and rightfully so (the Great Stele of Axum and the Jupiter temple of Baalbek). I hope I didn't give you any wrong ideas now, Axum and Baalbek are great places :-) Usually people older than 16-17-18 learn that they don't possess all wisdom. That truth isn't black and white. That you can have the last word and look silly, or let go and look smart. That your explanation "It hasn't got an article, so I remove it" doesn't stand up to ration. Often you can either have the last word, or be mature. It's all yours from here on. PS: Not all "terms" are juggling clubs or stone monoliths. Dan Bahat is a HIGHLY regarded, accomplished, kind and relatively old person. He deserves to be popularized, professionally for sure and otherwise also. I've made the same intervention on a dozen other pages in more prominent places than the list of references on an overview list on monoliths. Nobody else removed him. Draw your own conclusions. "Online" can be very real, not at all "virtual". Have a good year, Arminden (talk) 13:05, 6 January 2015 (UTC)Arminden

Unicycle Links[edit]

Yes you are right. No limits on Wikilinks. Was doing a clear out on various articles of external links which were dead, incorrect or promotional and I was too keen. However a list a manufacturers is not very informative without a link at all. Maybe those that aren't Wikilinked should go -Robynthehode (talk) 17:58, 23 January 2015 (UTC)

Yes, I agree with you about the list items that do not link to a separate article. That is the criteria in the List of bicycle brands and manufacturing companies and Tandem bicycle articles. -AndrewDressel (talk) 19:32, 23 January 2015 (UTC)

You must be mistaken[edit]

I did not try to "change the title" of the pages. You see, there is two ways to write the full titles. Star Wars Episode X: Subtitle and Star Wars: Episode X - Subtitle. Eric - Contact me please. I prefer conversations started on my talk page if the subject is changed 19:28, 20 February 2015 (UTC)

Street performance[edit]

Hello. You've been here for about 6 years, but you only have a mere 758 edits, of which 625 are to articles. I've been here for 11 years, and I have over 118,000 article edits. I suggest that you don't really know what the fuck you're doing, and what your're getting involved in, and that with my moving of the disputed sentence to another section, away from the "one-man-band" paragraph, that it would be best for you call it a victory and move along.

Notice of Edit warring noticeboard discussion[edit]

Information icon Hello. This message is being sent to inform you that there is currently a discussion involving you at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Edit warring regarding a possible violation of Wikipedia's policy on edit warring. Thank you.

Please see WP:AN3#User:Robynthehode and User:Beyond My Ken reported by User:Lugnuts (Result: Two parties warned) which includes a warning to both of you. Thank you, EdJohnston (talk) 01:57, 28 April 2015 (UTC)
For what it's worth, I entirely sympathise with you. You have been bullied by a long-term editor who should know much, much better and who is enjoying a kind of immunity that many other editors never see. The gratuitous and overt personal attacks on you were something that many editors would be blocked for, and it's an interesting insight into his behaviour that, once warned by a couple of people, and despite his "eleven years" of experience here, he suddenly redacted his abuse. He has spent a long time criticising me for being "a jerk" and "one of the worst admins on Wikipedia" but I'm proud to say that I have never stooped to his gutter-level of personal attacks and indignation. I hope you aren't entirely put off by the experience, needless to say you should feel encouraged to continue to work here collaboratively, and not be dissuaded by the few bad apples. All the best. The Rambling Man (talk) 19:05, 28 April 2015 (UTC)
Hello Robynthehode. This is a reply to your comment at the edit warring board. There is no implication that you are a bad editor, though you made more than three reverts. That is is against the rules. Since admin actions should be even-handed, we need to point out the problems with your edits as well as with BMK's. Per WP:NOTTHEM another editor's misbehavior doesn't get you off the hook. We'll be expecting both you and BMK to follow the edit warring rules in the future. Thank you, EdJohnston (talk) 21:46, 28 April 2015 (UTC)

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.

Skyscraper merge proposals[edit]

It is not appropriate to use revert on a good faith edit WP:REVERT. There has been an open topic on the talk page to gather feedback on this merge proposal as per WP:MERGE. That would be the place to comment. There is an extensive Afd discussion on one of the articles that will give some background to the proposal. By way of disclosure, I have no affiliation with either website, only passing involvement as an editor in the articles and topic area. Wiki-psyc (talk) 20:53, 6 January 2016 (UTC)

The talk page section has not reached consensus for the merge. I will comment there but have reverted your edit because it does not add anything to the article and in parts adds unimportant detail Robynthehode (talk) 21:27, 6 January 2016 (UTC)
In the interim, please do not remove the merge banners. Surely you are familiar with WP:PAM Thanks. Wiki-psyc (talk) 22:21, 6 January 2016 (UTC)

Re 'British' isles edit[edit]

"Did the 'Irish' really arrive with the Anglo Saxons. Were they a distinct people?"

My apologies[edit]

I meant to revert only your edit in the "Climate" section of mountain range with this edit; I also got your edits confused with the one immediately before yours, which had added a hatnote about massif. I reinstated the good part of your edit, and I apologize for the minor mess.— Gorthian (talk) 18:05, 8 March 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for your message. I won't change the article again as we will need to discuss this but I still believe 'climate' is the wrong terminology. See the Wikipedia article on Climate. The way the section in the mountain range article about climate is written seems to be talking about weather not climate. Robynthehode (talk) 06:59, 9 March 2016 (UTC)

Hi, could you possibly please reply at Talk:List of future tallest buildings in the world?

Darth Fener[edit]

I wonder why you removed my contribution to the page Darth Vader. Maybe the information should go in some other part of page, but it is not true that it is not relevant. In fact, many America people are confused when they heard of "Darth Fener" because they do not know where it originates. They think is a character of a spin-off of the series. It is not. So, I think it should be added somewhere in that page. It is relevant to that character anyway.--Dejudicibus (talk) 18:57, 28 March 2016 (UTC)

I don't believe you actually checked what changes I have made to the page List of tallest structures in the world by country. They included expanding several of the sections, removing buildings that were under construction and under 100m, and removing tables so that the article was consistently formatted.
