Thank you[edit]

Thank you for speaking up on the behalf of a user you did not even know. I appreciate your efforts for justice. Should you have any lingering concerns, I encourage you to come to my talk page and join the dialog there on what has occured. Discussion is the best way to calm stormy waters.

Ignore all rules[edit]

First, obviously, if rule 5 were deleted, it would become four pillars rather than five. I think that any change to the four/five pillars should be well discussed on its talk page first. Failure to do so would be to ignore all rules, which could be seen as WP:POINT.

I personally think that the five pillars document is fine, because it says that there are no rules other than those listed, and the writers' rules of engagement are one of the pillars. The real problem is that Ignore All Rules is the wrong summary of the guideline, and is sufficiently wrong as to be a destructive title, because it can easily be read as meaning that one can ignore civility.

Thanks Susvolans - I'm just taking baby steps for now Redkaty 14:38, 10 November 2005 (UTC)

Final decision[edit]

The arbitration committee has reached a final decision in the Wikipedia:Requests for arbitration/Louis Epstein case →Raul654 02:12, 12 November 2005 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Neutral point of view[edit]

Regarding the revert; the claim that all five pillars are unchangeable has no foundation in policy, why is it there then? Is the Wikipedia:Five pillars, wrong? -- Zondor 17:42, 15 November 2005 (UTC)

Updated poll[edit]

I have completely changed the poll. Please see Wikipedia talk:Naming conventions (years in titles)/Poll --AllyUnion (talk) 02:39, 17 November 2005 (UTC)

curly quotes[edit]

May I ask why you moved "—All You Zombies—" to “—All You Zombies—”? — flamingspinach | (talk) 06:13, 21 November 2005 (UTC)


I wouldn't know how, but why would you want to anyway? Martin 14:32, 22 November 2005 (UTC)

Aha, so you mean find occurances where it was expanded when it used this revision of the prettytable. In which case the only way I think you could find them would be to get someone to use an SQL query on the database dump, but I don't know how successful that would be. At the moment I am not capable of doing this, but plently of other people are. Martin 16:10, 22 November 2005 (UTC)

Reorganized General topics[edit]

Thanks for spotting and flagging those reorganized pages. I thought that I had deleted them all. --Reflex Reaction (talk)• 14:20, 23 November 2005 (UTC)

Deleting a useless page[edit]

Hi. You left a message on my talkpage welcoming me and saying I could ask you if I had any questions. Well, I've found a page that seems total junk (Alan 447 Rifle (disambiguation)). What should I do in this instance?Jamse 18:08, 1 December 2005 (UTC)

It's OK, someone else seems to have done this now. I'd still appreciate knowing how to do this, in case it comes up again in the future. Perhaps you could post the answer here, or on my talk page when you get chance? Thanks, Jamse 23:36, 4 December 2005 (UTC)

AM thank you[edit]

I love it when someone goes to the source to complain and thereby spurs some action! :-) Tedernst | Talk 17:31, 2 December 2005 (UTC)

Your input would be useful at Talk:AM where the wikilinks and other non-MoS:DP content is being added back by User:Tobias Conradi. Thanks/wangi 18:02, 4 December 2005 (UTC)

Regarding nesting .am under Armenia on AM. Please keep in mind the way the page is used. The reader may have clicked on ".am", with an unlinked dot, to get to the disambiguation page. He may not know that it means Armenia. Instead of associating items on the page using the complex category model that we have formulated when we compile that page, we should list them simply by the term or link, because the reader is just clicking a link, and is unlikely to have formulated this model in his head.

Moving a Category[edit]

Hello again. Thanks for your answer to my previous question. I have another - is it possible to 'move' a Category? Normal pages all seem to have a 'move' tab, but I can't see this on Categories.

Specifically, there is Category:Lecturers of the University of Nottingham - I was about to populate it, but I thought it might be better as Category:Academics of the University of Nottingham (or 'University of Nottingham Academics'), which is a bit broader. I think it would be better to move / rename it before adding lots of people into the category!

Thanks. Jamse 18:15, 5 December 2005 (UTC)

Tedernst RFA thanks![edit]

Am I being provoked, do you think? I've had more conflict this week than ever before! :-) Oh well, thanks much for the support and let me know if I can be of assistance. peace, Tedernst | talk 23:19, 5 December 2005 (UTC)


You modified the contents of my user page to remove the existing {{ps}} tag and replace it it with a {{photoshop}} tag. While I would have no issue with this if it did not change the appearance of the resulting graphic, it does. Could you please explain why this change was necessary. (I'm not upset or anything - I just like to know when things have been changed and why.) Denni 01:57, 6 December 2005 (UTC)

Manual of style, "main article" section[edit]

Thanks! You see why it needed to be in the manual of style...:) Stevage 16:28, 8 December 2005 (UTC)

Thanks for the info on my nickname...[edit]

I didn't know that, but then of course it fits perfectly, for I am the one who's spent more than a year engaging in hundreds of revert wars to enforce my preferences.... Do you know what Susvolans means in my language ;) ? Sortan 17:53, 9 December 2005 (UTC)

your reversion of my edits[edit]

Nowhere does it say my good faith edits can or should be reverted. If you have an issue with my edits, take it to an admin. Don't edit war with me, because I think you're only doing it to intentionally cause me distress. -- Netoholic @ 17:32, 13 December 2005 (UTC)

I used a generally issued pressrelease for the description of this comic. Was that wrong? I tried to read the copyright-page but just could not figure it out by myself.

Rfa thanks[edit]

Hello Susvolans. Thank you for supporting my Rfa! :) I will try my best to be a good administrator. Please ask me if you need any help. --a.n.o.n.y.m t 17:43, 6 January 2006 (UTC)


You, along with several other editors, suggested replacing {{wiktionary}} with {{wiktionarypar}} a while ago, which is gradually being done. Netoholic is now repeatedly redirecting Template:Wiktionarypar. Please read the prior discussion of this (which I've reminded Netoholic of) at Template talk:Wiktionary and contribute. You may want to put Template:Wiktionarypar on your watchlist. Uncle G 08:47, 19 January 2006 (UTC)

Page name for temperature articles[edit]

To avoid flip-flopping between 'degree Fahrenheit' and 'Fahrenheit' or 'degree Celsius' and 'Celsius', I propose that we have a discussion on which we want. I see you have contributed on units of measurement, please express your opinion at Talk:Units of measurement. Thanks. bobblewik 22:09, 12 February 2006 (UTC)

Please check your WP:NA entry[edit]

Greetings, editor! Your name appears on Wikipedia:List of non-admins with high edit counts. If you have not done so lately, please take a look at that page and check your listing to be sure that following the particulars are correct:

  1. If you are an admin, please remove your name from the list.
  2. If you are currently interested in being considered for adminship, please be sure your name is in bold; if you are opposed to being considered for adminship, please cross out your name (but do not delete it, as it will automatically be re-added in the next page update).
  3. Please check to see if you are in the right category for classification by number of edits.

Thank you, and have a wiki wiki day! BD2412 T 02:38, 17 February 2006 (UTC)

Date links[edit]

Since you have taken an interest in links. Please be kind enough to vote for my new bot application to reduce overlinking of dates where they are not part of date preferences. bobblewik 20:48, 25 February 2006 (UTC)

Invitation to Wikipedia meetup in London[edit]

Wikimedia UK logo

Date: 13:00 onwards, Sunday 10 August 2008

Venue: Penderel's Oak pub, Holborn WC1 map

More information: Wikipedia:Meetup/London 12


I noticed that you have listed yourself as a Wikipedian in London, so I thought you might like to come to one of our monthly social meetups. The next one is going to be on Sunday 10 August, which might well be rather short notice, but if you can't come this time, we try to have one every second Sunday of the month.

If you haven't been before, these meetups are mainly casual social events for Wikipedia enthusiasts in which we chat about Wikipedia and any other topics we fancy. It's a great way to meet some very keen Wikipedians, but we'd also love for you to come along if you're interested in finding out more about Wikipedia, other Wikimedia projects, or other collaborative wiki projects too.

The location is a pub that is quite quiet and family friendly on a Sunday lunchtime, so hopefully younger Wikipedians will also feel welcome and safe. Alcohol consumption is certainly not required!

Although the meetups are popular, many UK-based editors still don't know about them. It would be great to welcome some fresh faces, so I hope you can come along.

London Wikimedia Fundraiser[edit]

Good evening! This is a friendly message from Chase me ladies, I'm the Cavalry, inviting you to the London Wikimedia Fundraising party on 19th December 2010, in approximately one week. This party is being held at an artistic London venue with room for approximately 300 people, and is being funded by Ed Saperia, a non-Wikipedian who has a reputation for holding exclusive events all over London. This year, he wants to help Wikipedia, and is subsidising a charity event for us. We're keen to get as many Wikimedians coming as possible, and we already have approximately 200 guests, including members of the press, and some mystery guests! More details can be found at - expect an Eigenharp, a mulled wine hot tub, a free hog roast, a haybale amphitheatre and more. If you're interested in coming - and we'd love to have you - please go to the ten.wikipedia page and follow the link to the Facebook event. Signing up on Facebook will add you to the party guestlist. Entry fee is a heavily subsidised £5 and entry is restricted to over 18s. It promises to be a 10th birthday party to remember! If you have any questions, please email me at chasemewiki at

Hope we'll see you there, (and apologies for the talk page spam) - Chase me ladies, I'm the Cavalry (talk) 00:02, 13 December 2010 (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.

The Duke of York listed at Redirects for discussion[edit]


An editor has asked for a discussion to address the redirect The Duke of York. Since you had some involvement with the The Duke of York redirect, you might want to participate in the redirect discussion if you have not already done so. --Nevéselbert 17:50, 4 August 2017 (UTC)
