Do not delete templates[edit]


Hey, I'm a big fan of the Aquabats as well and wanted to join the aquacadets but cant seem to find a site or anything for them to sign up. If you know of how to do it will you please let me know? Asatruar (talk) 17:44, 15 May 2008 (UTC)

Pansy Division[edit]

Yes, you're right, Pansy Division could use a more cohesive and better-referenced bio... it seems like a lot of times the music articles aren't up to the standards of other articles in terms of references, etc., and there is a tendency for people to tack on trivia, etc.--Larrybob (talk) 18:22, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

Computer Bites![edit]

Since Computer Bites! is not blatant vandalism, it cannot be speedy deleted. I agree that it is a hoax, so I have brought it to WP:AFD. If you would like to participate in the AfD discussion, feel free to comment at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Computer Bites!. Nice job for catching this hoax! Cheers, Cunard (talk) 18:53, 3 June 2009 (UTC)

Never mind. Ged UK (talk · contribs) has closed the AfD as speedy delete. Cunard (talk) 19:29, 3 June 2009 (UTC)

You are now a Reviewer[edit]

Wikipedia Reviewer.svg

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, is currently undergoing a two-month trial scheduled to end 15 August 2010.

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under pending changes. Pending changes is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial. The list of articles with pending changes awaiting review is located at Special:OldReviewedPages.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles (talk) 18:02, 19 June 2010 (UTC)

Jason Moss- which school?[edit]

You added Jason Moss to two Oregon high schools. Did he attend both? Can you add a cite (to a source) to each indicating he attended those schools? tedder (talk) 01:15, 8 December 2010 (UTC)

  • Which two is he listed on? My reference mentions only South Eugene HS and thus is the only one he should be listed on. Any other is mistake.Skibz777 (talk) 01:31, 8 December 2010 (UTC)
Oh, I guess I saw your two edits to the same page and thought they were different pages. Yeah, you've only listed it once. Can you include your reference/cite? We try to include cites on all school attendances. Yes, there are many missing, but it's easier to do when they are added. tedder (talk) 01:39, 8 December 2010 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Poultrygeist (soundtrack)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Poultrygeist (soundtrack) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Non notable album with no claim to notability.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist.

Thank you for sourcing Lloyd Knibb[edit]

I was looking all around for a source a few hours ago and couldn't find one, at least nothing worthy of Wikipedia. I came back online just now to see if there might be one somewhere now. I am glad to see you have found one though I am still saddened by the news of the death of one of ska's founding members. I am thankful I've had the luxury of seeing the Skatalites a few times following the 90s ska revival.

Also, I didn't know if there was a way to send messages so I thought I'd just uselessly fill up your talk page like so. Feel free to delete this section. ;)

Cherry Poppin' Daddies[edit]

I hardly ever look at that article though it's on my watchlist, but I see your username pop up a lot. Well, I finally read the article for the first time in ages tonight, and I have to assume that it is so excellent because of all your hard work. So congratulations! Having been around Eugene for the early days of the band (I could supply all kinds of original research), and noting that band articles on Wikipedia generally suck, I have to say that this is a hell of a good article! I totally support you trying to get it to FA. I wish I still had a cassette player because I would play my 4 From on High cassette in tribute. I have a friend who at one time had every CPD poster from a certain era. Let me find out if she still has them. A scan of one of those might make a nice addition to the article. If you decide to try for FA, let me know. Cheers! Valfontis (talk) 02:17, 28 May 2011 (UTC)

Thanks! It's surprising what can result from just pecking away at an article for so long. I appreciate the offer of help; the only thing I think I really need outside of proofreading are more illustrative pictures from the earlier days of the band. Let me know if any of those posters get scanned, I'd love to see them. :) Skibz777 (talk) 00:09, 10 June 2011 (UTC)
Sorry, just noticed your reply. I'll ask around about pics, too. My friend just moved and is busy, but I'll see if the posters still exist. Cheers, Valfontis (talk) 14:54, 28 June 2011 (UTC)

Eyes on The Aquabats[edit]

Hey Skibz, not sure if you've noticed the recent edit-warring at The Aquabats but thought I'd bring it to your attention. I'm going out of town for the weekend and will be off-wiki, so it'd sure help if you'd keep an eye on the article. I started an ANI thread about it at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents#The Aquabats if you want to read a little more about it. --IllaZilla (talk) 04:37, 30 June 2012 (UTC)

The edit-warring account was blocked and the article has been semi-protected until the 7th, but he threatened to sockpuppet and get his "friends" to help, so keep an eye out. --IllaZilla (talk) 04:57, 30 June 2012 (UTC)

Sure, I'll keep a watchful eye. Skibz777 (talk) 05:23, 30 June 2012 (UTC)

A barnstar for you[edit]
