Parrot of Doom[edit]

I like the way you handled PoD earlier. Well done. GlooscapSinclair (talk) 00:48, 22 April 2010 (UTC)


I replied to you at Template talk:Asbox#RFC; no need to respond, but I wanted to be sure you knew I'd already done what you kindly suggested. Andy Mabbett (User:Pigsonthewing); Andy's talk; Andy's edits 10:30, 27 April 2010 (UTC)

Kraft dinner move[edit]

Just to let you know what happened with your original move proposal. After the RfC ended, I asked someone on the WP:AN board to close it as a move as the consensus pointed in that direction. After I made the request, a bunch of people posted to the discussion resulting in a changing of the move outcome and throwing off the original consensus from move to no consensus, or keep as original titled. It is however tilting back into the direction of move. --Jeremy (blah blahI did it!) 08:07, 10 April 2011 (UTC)

It seems that way...I wonder why so many people chimed in after the RFC expired? --RSLxii 21:33, 11 April 2011 (UTC)


I just noticed that you reverted my reverting of your edits on the Cricket page... except I don't recall reverting you at all! I use a touch screen device that can sometimes send a command, but not load the page if I then click on something else, so looking at the time of the edit, I think that must have been the case. So, it was an unintended rollback. Sorry! The-Pope (talk) 23:15, 14 July 2011 (UTC)

No worries. Glad to hear, as I put some work into that section! --RSLxii 15:36, 15 July 2011 (UTC)

Offence and defence[edit]

To put it simply, those terms are never used in cricket mainly because both the batting and bowling teams can be attacking (batting trying to either score runs or bowling team trying to take wickets) or defensive (batting team prioritising not getting out or bowling team trying to not give up runs). This can change over-by-over, session by session, player-by-player depending on the game situation. I guess it's part of why we like the game - it is many shades of grey rather than black and white. The-Pope (talk) 16:09, 27 December 2011 (UTC)

I guess it makes sense--in most games, the attacking side (the side trying to score) tries to "penetrate" through the defending side (the side preventing scores from occurring). But in cricket, the concept of "penetration" is best applied to what the "defending" side is doing to the "attacking" side. --RSLxii 17:20, 27 December 2011 (UTC)
To confuse you even further, though what The-Pope says is correct and the fielding side as a whole is not called "the attack", the actual bowlers within that side are often called "the bowling attack". JH (talk page) 18:02, 27 December 2011 (UTC)

Your invitation to participate in a Wikimedia-approved survey in online behavior.[edit]

Hello, my name is Michael Tsikerdekis[2][3], currently involved as a student in full time academic research at Masaryk University. I am writing to you to kindly invite you to participate in an online survey about interface and online collaboration on Wikipedia. The survey has been reviewed and approved by the Wikimedia Foundation Research Committee.

I am contacting you because you were randomly selected from a list of active editors. The survey should take about 7 to 10 minutes to complete, and it is very straightforward.

Wikipedia is an open project by nature. Let’s create new knowledge for everyone! :-)

To take part in the survey please follow the link: (HTTPS).

Best Regards, Michael Tsikerdekis (talk) 08:08, 5 February 2012 (UTC)

PS: The results from the research will become available online for everyone and will be published in an open access journal.

UPDATE: This is the second and final notification for participating in this study. Your help is essential for having concrete results and knowledge that we all can share. I would like to thank you for your time and as always for any questions, comments or ideas do not hesitate to contact me. PS: As a thank you for your efforts and participation in Wikipedia Research you will receive a Research Participation Barnstar after the end of the study. --Michael Tsikerdekis (talk) 07:44, 16 February 2012 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

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.
