Zachary Taylor: I have requested feedback

TheGracefulSlick recently accepted an edit to remove two sentences from Zachary Taylor. There is a section on that article's talk page where I requested feedback on the potential of that edit to be WP:GOOD. Please address the issue in section "168 years" before reverting the edit again, thanks. - Sleyece 17:43:02, July 3, 2017 (UTC)

The Good Article Nominations Page Needs Your Help!

Good Articles: Music needs the help of willing reviewers!

Hi there. You nominated an article for evaluation against the good article criteria some time ago, but I noticed you have yet to review an article yourself. Although it's not mandatory, it would be helpful if every user who creates a nomination also reviewed at least one other article, as this would help clear the massive backlog. Reviewing someone else's article can also help you in the long run: every article reviewed brings yours one position closer to the top of the nominations list! If you worked on the article you nominated, chances are you're already familiar with the six good article criteria. It really isn't hard to review, and may take an experienced editor only a few hours to complete. If you have the time and would like to help, please click here, take a moment to figure out which article you'd like to review, then click on its (start review) button. Thank you for reading, and if you need assistance with your review at any point, please feel free to leave a message on my talk page and I'll respond to you as soon as I can. Homeostasis07 (talk)


Lest We Forget: The Best Of

Hi, @TheGracefulSlick: you might remember me from our collaboration on the "Look at Your Game, Girl" article. I recently nominated the (short) article for Marilyn Manson's album Lest We Forget: The Best Of for GA and I was wondering if you might like to review it. Let me know --MagicatthemovieS

Just to acknowledge that I have received your e-mail. I understand you won't be appealing, but if you do decide to appeal in six months of so, you will have to be transparent about everything. Regards, Alex Shih (talk) 23:08, 5 August 2018 (UTC)
I, too, received your e-mail (both). I don't reply to user e-mail - not just yours but others as well. I hope you feel better.--Bbb23 (talk) 00:53, 6 August 2018 (UTC)
Thanks Bbb23 and Alex Shih. I apologized to Jbhunley for my behavior as well. Even though this was not the best way to do it, I think this will help me get in a right place again. I have received support I never knew I had from editors via e-mail and regret that I did not search for less disruptive alternatives. Take care.TheGracefulSlick (talk) 01:27, 6 August 2018 (UTC)
  • I'm sorry to see this, TheGracefulSlick, and I hope we see you back one day. @Bbb23: I tried to figure out what happened, but the sockpuppet investigations casepage is from 2017 and ends without any finding of guilt. Please consider updating it for the record. Bishonen | talk 07:55, 6 August 2018 (UTC).
(watching:) Bbb is not very talkative in these matters, - look for the three b in the RfA. I don't know if indef is the right answer to a little oppose under a wrong name (happened twice so far). --Gerda Arendt (talk) 08:47, 6 August 2018 (UTC)
I suppose there may be privacy reasons for not updating the SPI. Sigh. Bishonen | talk 10:03, 6 August 2018 (UTC).
@Bishonen: There's no rule that an existing SPI has to be updated in these circumstances. My usual practice is to update the SPI (or create one if it doesn't exist) if there is a significant number of socks. Nor is it a privacy issue. Grace is aware of the WP:SO if she chooses to take advantage of it six months from now.--Bbb23 (talk) 12:16, 6 August 2018 (UTC)
