Attacking editors?[edit]

Sorry, you have left me a message saying that I am attacking editors. What editor have I attacked? You left a link to writer D.M.Thomas page, but D. M. Thomas is not an editor here. The plagiarism is undisputed, and it is appropriate to say that in the article. Irishflowers (talk) 12:08, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

Elephant and Castle[edit]

man, you`re nuts. I removed some sentence on elephant and castle which said `sarah kimmit loves it and calls it the elephant!` how is this vandalism? 58.81.137.194 (talk) 12:31, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

My talk page[edit]

Hey, thanks for the vigilance, but his terse inquiry was in regards to the argument we are currently having over the Vladivostok article. He has the right to ask, albeit his tone indeed leaves much to be desired, I have thick skin to mind that kind of crap :) Anyway, just letting you know that I restored his inquiry and removed the warning you placed on his talk page. Thanks again!—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); 19:21, December 18, 2008 (UTC)

  • Many thanks and apologies for the edit - I thought it was vandalism to an article. Springnuts (talk) 19:26, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

Vandalism on List of Keeping Up Appearances episodes[edit]

Somthing needs to be done about that user.

Despite me having given them 4 warnings and then reported them for vandalism they are still vandalising.

Any ideas?

Dragonball Evolution.[edit]

Wow, congrats on 'fixing' my 'vandalism' three seconds after it had been done, at 3:40 AM no less. Are you a ninja?

At any rate, what I did wasn't so bad. The movie itself is vandalism of a perfectly good series. They went as low as to attack Dragonball, as opposed to Dragonball Z, or even Dragonball GT (which nobody would've minded). —Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.176.8.211 (talk) 10:42, 20 December 2008 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Suspected sock puppets/Dwellsmusic[edit]

Hi Springnuts,

I noticed that you said that the sockpuppet had made good faith edits--sure, but those edits restored all the peacock terms I had painstakingly removed from Dean Wells (guitarist)... But thanks for keeping your eye on the case. Drmies (talk) 21:09, 31 December 2008 (UTC)

French for Chaplain[edit]

Hi. A chaplain is a 'chapelain' when the context is of a private chapel. You might notice that the french article for chapelain starts by saying "a chapelain or almoner is"; the distinction is rather blurry between the two. However, they are distinct entities (we have an article for the chaplain and an article for almoners), thus I thought it was better to keep that distinction.

Tom Allason[edit]

Please feel free to continue to contribute your opinion on the Tom Allason article about WP:AB and WP:NPOV. The editor adding the questionable content is continuing to re-add his info and has resulted in the start of a edit war, so I requested a WP:RFC. Your opinion as a previous editor would be greatly appreciated. — raeky (talk | edits) 13:58, 29 January 2009 (UTC)

Jay Bregman[edit]

It looks like this article was also redirected--can we put discussion on the article talk page so we can discuss this one separately from the above please? Sorry, also can you restore the last edit of this page to a sub-page on my page so I can edit it? Thanks! Travisb4279 (talk) 14:31, 31 January 2009 (UTC)

Simon Chan[edit]

Hi, (a) he didn't need a disambiguation in brackets as there is no other article at this name, and (b) if you had needed to add a disambiguation, remember that "(theologian)" wouldn't need a capital "T"! I moved the article, so it's OK now. PamD (talk) 11:52, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

Oh, and (c): what does "(Ag)" mean? Could you explain it, please. PamD (talk) 11:53, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

Malcolm Miller[edit]

Has the ship been renamed back to Malcolm Miller? If so, do you have a reference for it? Thanks for improving the article by adding a photo. Mjroots (talk) 09:52, 28 August 2009 (UTC)

Searching for "Helena C" reveals that she was up for sale in last few years at £2.6M. For the moment I won't alter infobox name. I'm a member of Ships Nostalgia so will see what I can find out from there. Mjroots (talk) 07:23, 29 August 2009 (UTC)
Apparently there was a fire on board last year. This article details it, but no mention of ship's name. Will search further. Mjroots (talk) 18:02, 7 September 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) 17:56, 19 June 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for your contributions.--Player23 (talk) 17:51, 8 August 2010 (UTC)

Yes. It is good for putting in chronological order. I added some extra found in searching files but some images that I cannot find their year painted. I don't know the modern work in Lot's images in searching wikis. Thanks your effort.--Player23 (talk) 05:36, 9 August 2010 (UTC)

Could you keep them until the creation of arcticle of Lot (Bible) in Art? It could be easier to find them.--Player23 (talk) 07:58, 9 August 2010 (UTC)

I just keep them for reference. If you have any other suggestion or disagree, please talk to me.--Player23 (talk) 08:15, 9 August 2010 (UTC)

Lot (Biblical) Christian View[edit]

Hello there.... It appears that the 'Christian View' has been removed from the Lot (Biblical) page. It wouldnt be fair to have Jewish and Islamic views without a christian view. I believe that you had removed it... but I could be wrong. If you did remove it, could you simplify or capture something from the original to put back on the Lot page so there is at least a section for it? Or at least redo it. Thanks, Jasonasosa (talk) 15:44, 22 December 2010 (UTC)

Nevermind, I got it. I baiscally merged New Testament info into christian views as this is more appropriate anyway. Thanks Jasonasosa (talk) 16:20, 22 December 2010 (UTC)

Re: Arnold Resnicoff[edit]

Thank you for understanding! You are editing that page [but] with scissors, and, on the way, you lost three or four references. The following is still used in the article:

<ref name="LOC">Library of Congress Veterans History Project: Arnold Resnicoff collection, AFC/2001/001/70629, May 2010.</ref>


I was lucky enough to work a little bit on that article. It was (and still is) assessed as B-class unto three different WikiProjects: Biography, Judaism, and United States (and IMO it also belongs to Wikipedia:WikiProject Military history). If you have the time to spare I (and the whole Wikipedia community) would be extremely grateful if you could work on that article and nominate it at WP:GAN. Obviously I'm ready to help, whenever and wherever it is possible. I am pretty sure that in this way, the end result will be a step forward and not a step back. Happy editing. –pjoef (talkcontribs) 10:13, 4 March 2012 (UTC)

Lot (biblical person)[edit]

Oops, I should have used a more fully-explained edit summary on that edit. I wasn't referring to User:StAnselm, who recently re-added that content, but to User:Leucosticte, who originally added it on July 1:[1] Leucosticte is a sockpuppet of the banned User:Sarsaparilla and has since been banned himself. As such, I don't think his contributions should be in the article; although if there's a consensus to nevertheless include that content, I'll accept it and won't object any further.

Massacre of the Innocents[edit]

I totally agree with the need to keep it balanced, however the current lead says it "was an episode", as if it actually happened, when in fact there's not a single credible source to confirm it, which is very heavily unbalanced. It's important for the lead to express such doubts, as people will often not read past the first sentence and form their opinions based on it. I'm open to alternative ways to express it, but I think "supposed" captures the fact it's only ever mentioned in a single religious text fairly accurately. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mathrick (talkcontribs) 09:06, 7 October 2012 (UTC)


As a historical source, Matthew is very much not a credible source, so yeah, wholesale :). I like the edit, putting emphasis on the biblical narrative part of it is a good idea. Thanks. mathrick (talk) 22:24, 8 October 2012 (UTC)

DF-21[edit]

Springnuts - the reason I changed the DF-21 speed was because the speed listed was unfortunately ridiculous. I cannot source my estimate but Mach 10 to Mach 15 is at least ball-park for an Intermediate Range Ballistic Missile. 500knots is the speed that a subsonic sea-skimming cruise missile travels at. Not many people would be scared of ballistic missiles if they travelled at that speed. For reference to back up my comments, check out some other ballistic missiles like the Pershing II (Mach 9, 1800km range), Agni V, SS-12, SS-14 etc. You won't find any other ballistic missiles that slow.

Here's a reference:

Hello Springnuts. Just a small heads up on the discussion here.

Gilles Bernheim[edit]

Describing a religious figure as "a philosopher" is not unlike describing one as "a scientist". Like that of science, the rational tradition of philosophy can sometimes be at odds with a more mystical understanding of the world by religious thinkers. So some specific basis for assigning such descriptions to clergy is usually present. And that's usually in the shape of a degree.

Rabbi Bernheim's thinking seems to be mostly religious. His "Quarante Méditations Juives" for example was a religious work. And as far as I can tell, that he was thought to be an agrégé of philosophy is the reason Rabbi Gilles Bernheim was being termed "a philosopher" (including by that referenced article in the Forward). Since the revelations, I don't think he has been referred to as "a philosopher", at least not in the Le Monde article, nor in the Huffington Post one.

It's not that plagiarism "is enough to discount all his thinking". Plagiarism has nothing to do with any of this. "All his thinking" is not being attacked in any way. But we describe Gilles Bernheim as "a philosopher" before even as "a Rabbi". Why? Being a Rabbi is what he is know for. And we are talking about the chief Rabbi in France. So, I suggest that, if we need to introduce Gilles Bernheim as something other than "rabbi", the more general "author", instead of the very specific "philosopher", allows us to present a more accurate biography ... without in any way discounting his thinking. Alexscara (talk) 06:07, 28 April 2013 (UTC)

Thank you, I appreciate it. But you've reversed my edits twice. That's enough from me. You should be the one to revert it back. Regards Alexscara (talk) 10:21, 28 April 2013 (UTC)
We are still introducing Rabbi Bernheim primarily as "a philosopher", even though, while the rabbi part is certain, the "philosopher" part is uncertain to say the least. I don't care if was just you or you and somebody else. You explained that this was a "judgement" call. But if it is, not to be imposing my judgement on others requires consensus. I rectified it twice. It was changed back twice. Enough from me. Whoever it was that considered the correction incorrect is the one that needs to restore it. Cheers!

Hover like a fly[edit]

Not clear? Let me explain. The issue is the identifying all Hoverflys as Mk Is, which they weren't. (I'll confess, right offhand, I can't say how RAF broke out the Hoverfly mark numbers, but that's really not on point.) I'm also not impressed with the "I's": it's not a possessive, it's a plural. The confusion you seem to think will insue, IMO, is near zero, & doesn't warrant such a common (& wrong) use of apostrophe. Any further confusion? Do message me.
