Denys Watkins-Pitchford[edit]

I have put the image of the Little Grey Men cover back in the article; I supplied the image, so I'm sure it is not part of the possible copyright vio. If you want to replace it with something better, that would be fine, but for the moment it is the only image we have for the article. Brianyoumans (talk) 21:22, 8 June 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for your message. I found when reading the section which that image was in that it had been taken word for word from some website, as I mentioned on the discussion page. So I wrote a (probably less good) substitute, and just removed the whole content of that section, replacing it with the version I had written. It wasn't my intention either to remove or to retain the image, and I'm not even sure that I realized I had removed it. I've no problem with your replacing it, anyway.

I am a new member of the Novels WikiProject! I have joined because I have a keen interest in novels, novellas, novelettes and short stories, articles about the works themselves and the forms and genres. I am new, so please try and help me as much as you can.

The History of Sir Charles Grandison[edit]

The "adaptation" section of The History of Sir Charles Grandison was there before I edited the page, and it sticks out. Do you think that it is necessary? I don't. If it was notable, it would have its own page and then that page could link back. Thats just what I think. Remove if you want, or leave it if you want. Ottava Rima (talk) 21:35, 29 July 2008 (UTC)

I agree that it sticks out a bit, mainly, I think, because it's so short. If it were mentioned, as part of a longer section about the influence of the novel on later literature, or something like that, I think it would be fine. I do think it should be mentioned, though it would probably stick out much less if there were just a brief reference, somewhere in the article, to Jane Austen having adapted the novel as a play. Incidentally, I've been thinking of starting an article on Jane Austen's adaptation myself, but it probably won't be in the next few weeks. I've also been thinking of adding the text (Jane Austen's short play, not Richardson's lo-o-o-o-ong novel!) to Wikisource. Stratford490 (talk) 21:59, 29 July 2008 (UTC)
How about this. I think it fixes the problem. Feel free to reword. :) Ottava Rima (talk) 22:19, 29 July 2008 (UTC)
That looks better. Thanks. :) Stratford490 (talk) 22:43, 29 July 2008 (UTC)
I've added some more. I could probably expand on the role of "love" and "marriage", but that shouldn't be too necessary. Anything missing? Otherwise, it feels complete. Ottava Rima (talk) 23:21, 29 July 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for the work you've been doing. It's nice to see that article being expanded. I have it and Richardson on my watchlist so should notice any future changes. The critical response section should probably be larger. I might have a go at that myself at some stage. Stratford490 (talk) 05:03, 30 July 2008 (UTC)
I added your name to the DYK entry for the two pages. Thanks for your help. Ottava Rima (talk) 16:38, 30 July 2008 (UTC)
Well thank you, though I'm not sure I deserve it. You've done most of the work. Stratford490 (talk) 20:39, 30 July 2008 (UTC)

Double hook DYK? nom[edit]

Updated DYK query On 4 August, 2008, Did you know? was updated with a fact from the article Samuel Richardson, which you created or substantially expanded. If you know of another interesting fact from a recently created article, then please suggest it on the Did you know? talk page.

WikiProject Novels is currently holding a roll call, which we hope to have annually.

If you still consider yourself an active WP:Novels editor, please add your name back to the Active Members list. Also feel free to join any of our task forces and take a look at the project's Job Centre to get involved!

Next month we will begin the coordinator election selection process. We hope to have more involvement and input this time around! More news will be forthcoming. Thanks, everyone! María (habla conmigo) 13:45, 9 September 2008 (UTC)

IP Block exempt[edit]


I notice you edit through a range that has an anti-vandal block active on it. After discussion with User:Cary Bass I've given your account IP Block exemption for this purpose -- details below!

IP block exempt[edit]

I have granted your account an exemption from IP blocking. This will allow you to edit through full blocks affecting your IP address when you are logged in.

Please read the page Wikipedia:IP block exemption carefully, especially the section on IP block exemption conditions.

Note in particular that you are not permitted to use this newly-granted right to edit Wikipedia via anonymous proxies, or disruptively. If you do, or there is a serious concern of abuse, then the right may be removed by any administrator.

Appropriate usage and compliance with the policy may be checked periodically, due to the nature of block exemption, and block exemption will be removed when no longer needed (for example, when the block it is related to expires).

I hope this will enhance your editing, and allow you to edit successfully and without disruption. User:FT2 (talk) 07:28, 7 November 2013 (UTC)

Your request for rollback[edit]

Wikipedia Rollback.png

After reviewing your request for rollback, I have enabled rollback on your account. Keep in mind these things when going to use rollback:

  • Getting rollback is no more momentous than installing Twinkle.
  • Rollback can be used to revert vandalism only, and not good faith edits.
  • Rollback may be removed at any time.

If you no longer want rollback, then contact me and I'll remove it. Also, for some information on how to use rollback, you can view this page. I'm sure you'll do great with rollback, just leave me a message if you run into troubles or have any questions about appropriate/inappropriate use of rollback. Happy editing!

WikiProject Children's Literature Roll Call[edit]

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.
