Saint-Jacques Tower
Saint-Jacques Tower is a monument located in the 4th arrondissement of Paris, France, on Rue de Rivoli at Rue Nicolas Flamel. This 52-metre (171 ft) Flamboyant Gothic tower is all that remains of the former 16th-century Church of Saint-Jacques-de-la-Boucherie, which was demolished in 1797 during the French Revolution. It is considered a national historic landmark.Photograph: Benh Lieu Song

Carbola Chemical[edit]

I noticed you have some posts about the Carbola mine. I'm doing some research on its ownership and liability interests (I know it passed hands, etc.). What information can you give me? Any pictures?

I would appreciate anything you can tell me. Thanks! —Preceding unsigned comment added by Silvergirl111 (talkcontribs) 16:51, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

Hello. I don't know much about the Carbola mine or company. Three years ago someone created an article here that wasn't really an article. It was a request for information about the Carbola Chemical Company. Since an information request doesn't qualify as an article, I moved the request to the Reference desk before deleting the (non)article. If you've seen my name in relation to edits about Carbola Chemical, then most likely you've already seen that page. If not, then check that link. User:Rholton came up with some contact information from 1998 which you may be able to use to track ownership. SWAdair | Talk 00:32, 3 January 2008 (UTC)

Profanity in Can opener[edit]

Shortly, I reverted you because I am more comfortable with f**cking than fucking :-) We all know what it means, thus why spelling out. Regarding WP rules on profanity, they say citations should be followed by the source. There are two refs on that phrase. One use the former another the latter spelling, which makes things somewhat obscure, but. The former ref is much more detailed (not on phrasing, but on food rationing :-) and IMO has more chances for long-term survival with f**cking than fucking. Regards. PS I am not reverting you now awaiting either your reply, or self-revert. Materialscientist (talk) 08:47, 23 August 2009 (UTC)

Sure, editing in parallel, right now I am searching info for a very very interesting (but "hard to get") DYK, thats why minutes of delay. My only f**king concern in those reverts was that my intuition tells me Can openers would survive longer with ** in it ;-) Either spelling is Ok. Happy editing.

Edwin L Bonner page, Bonner County[edit]

Hello, I was doing some reading on my local area and noticed you had deleted a page linking to Edwin L. Bonner for Bonner County.

Was wondering, any particular reason why?

New Page Patrol survey[edit]


New page patrol – Survey Invitation

Hello SWAdair! The WMF is currently developing new tools to make new page patrolling much easier. Whether you  have patrolled many pages or only a few, we now need to  know about your experience. The survey takes only 6 minutes, and the information you provide will not be shared with third parties other than to assist us in analyzing the results of the survey; the WMF will not use the information to identify you.

  • If this invitation  also appears on other accounts you  may  have, please complete the  survey  once only. 
  • If this has been sent to you in error and you have never patrolled new pages, please ignore it.

Please click HERE to take part.
Many thanks in advance for providing this essential feedback.

You are receiving this invitation because you  have patrolled new pages. For more information, please see NPP Survey. Global message delivery 13:07, 26 October 2011 (UTC)

Notice of change[edit]

Hello. You are receiving this message because of a recent change to the administrator policy that alters what you were told at the time of your desysopping. The effect of the change is that if you are inactive for a continuous three year period, you will be unable to request return of the administrative user right. This includes inactive time prior to your desysopping if you were desysopped for inactivity and inactive time prior to the change in policy. Inactivity is defined as the absence of edits or logged actions. Until such time as you have been inactive for three years, you may request return of the tools at the bureaucrats' noticeboard. After you have been inactive for three years, you may seek return of the tools only through WP:RFA. Thank you. MBisanz talk 00:20, 4 December 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.

New deal for page patrollers[edit]

Hi SWAdair,

In order to better control the quality of new pages, keep out the spam, and welcome the genuine newbies, the current system we introduced in 2011 is being updated and improved. The documentation and tutorials have also been revised and given a facelift. Most importantly a new user group New Page Reviewer has been created.

Under the new rule, you may find that you are temporarily unable to mark new pages as reviewed. However, this is nothing to worry about - most current experienced patrollers are being accorded the the new right without the need to apply, and if you have significant previous experience of patrolling new pages, we strongly encourage you to apply for the new right as soon as possible - we need all the help we can get, and we are now providing a dynamic, supportive environment for your work.

Find out more about this exiting new user right now at New Page Reviewers and be sure to read the new tutorial before applying. MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 04:29, 13 November 2016 (UTC)
