Assume good faith
Do not accuse others of vandalism without basis. Assume good faith when dealing with others' edits. Certainly do not threaten blocks when there is no evidence of vandalism. Do so and you may lose your administration powers permanently. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 13:42, 18 April 2010 (UTC)
Endian debate =
Hi Toby. Excuse my pedantry, but as a fellow Oxonian, may I quibble the labelling of the Stern and Bow in your fine sketch? You appear to be advocating the backward approach used at the Fenland Polytechnic, where the punter stands on the slippery deck high above the waterline - quite obviously not as God or nature intended. Maybe "Oxford End" and "Cambridge End" would be more approprate? Cheers, TrulyBlue (talk) 20:18, 2 August 2008 (UTC) --- your pedantry is entirely excusable, but Rivington makes it quite clear which is stern and which is bow --- and also that neither Light Blue nor Dark Blue have it "right"; the orthodox position is to punt from what you call the Cambridge end but from *inside* the boat --- I sort of covered this in the article... Thruston (talk) 13:09, 21 April 2009 (UTC)
I note your comments. Unfortunately the process for appealing a ban is very opaque, and I do not think that the ban was justified, because it was done in the name of an uninvestigated claim which I know to be false. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Inhwiki2 (talk • contribs) 13:30, 18 May 2009 (UTC)
Hi TruelyBlue. I do hope to make clear that he was one of a number of central figures in a series of tragic events, land disputes and warfare that occoured in the area at the time. His activities as a land-agent (which I have yet to cover) led directly to his death, which in turn lead directly and indirectly to a number of further deaths (see links to Tom Egan (murder victim) and Bill Freaney. I hope to expand on all three articles. Fergananim (talk) 11:47, 8 June 2009 (UTC)
Hello, regarding Ryan littlejohns, you patrolled the page, and warned the user, but you didn't add the tag, Is this an error on Twinkles part, or something else? All the best SpitfireTally-ho! 14:12, 25 June 2009 (UTC)
- No need to apologise :), I was just wondering, all the best SpitfireTally-ho! 14:17, 25 June 2009 (UTC)
Removal of PROD from School Culture
Hello TrulyBlue, this is an automated message from SDPatrolBot to inform you the PROD template you added to School Culture has been removed. It was removed by Tgoldins with the following edit summary '(This is not a personal essay, but an article that is substantiated by research and noted references.)'. Please consider discussing your concerns with Tgoldins before pursuing deletion further yourself. If you still think the article should be deleted after communicating with the 'dePRODer,' you may want to send the article to AfD for community discussion. Thank you, SDPatrolBot (talk) 01:15, 7 August 2009 (UTC) (Learn how to opt out of these messages)
Speedy deletion contested: JFramework
Hello TrulyBlue, and thanks for your work patrolling new changes. I am just informing you that I contested the speedy deletion of JFramework - a page you tagged - because: A7 is not applicable. This is a software, not a website. Please review the criteria for speedy deletion before tagging further pages. If you have any questions or problems, please let me know. Tim Song (talk) 03:59, 7 September 2009 (UTC)
Hi TrulyBlue. I am trying to revive this previously deleted page Wizfolio. I have rewritten the page and would like to ask you to have a second look. Thank you for your time. Kendric Apple (talk) 08:00, 17 September 2009 (UTC)

Hello. This is TOP 30 on radio WFMU, New Jersey http://www.wfmu.org/Playlists/Wfmu/top30.091022.html Maybe you know that this is the biggest freeform radio in USA? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 10:59, 2 December 2009 (UTC)
Altered speedy deletion rationale: Keith SEmple (musician)
Hello TrulyBlue. I am just letting you know that I deleted Keith SEmple (musician), a page you tagged for speedy deletion, under a different criterion from the one you provided, which doesn't fit the page in question. Thank you. SoWhy 15:29, 27 December 2009 (UTC)
Removal of PROD from Patricia Hogan
Hello TrulyBlue, this is an automated message from SDPatrolBot to inform you the PROD template you added to Patricia Hogan has been removed. It was removed by Nyttend with the following edit summary '(Professor with all of these publications may well be notable)'. Please consider discussing your concerns with Nyttend before pursuing deletion further yourself. If you still think the article should be deleted after communicating with the 'dePRODer,' you may want to send the article to AfD for community discussion. Thank you, SDPatrolBot (talk) 08:05, 23 March 2010 (UTC) (Learn how to opt out of these messages) 08:05, 23 March 2010 (UTC)
First Comics News
TrulyBlue you added "This article may meet Wikipedia’s criteria for speedy deletion as an article about a web site, blog, web forum, webcomic, podcast, browser game, or similar web content that does not credibly indicate the importance or significance of the subject. See CSD A7." to First Comics News. Site like Newsarama, Comic Book Resources, and Comics Bulletin all have Wikipedia articles and all duplicate the same news. However if you want to get the latest news in anything but English you are our of luck. First Comics News translates to Arabic, Bulgarian, Catalan, Chinese, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Filipino, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Latvian, Lithuanian, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Serbian, Slovak, Slovenian, Spanish, Swedish, Ukrainian and Vietnamese. All the super hero movies are shown in these languages and many of the comics are licensed and translated into these languages. First Comics News is the international communities only place for this type of news. This makes First Comics News unique and important. How do I get my article reconsidered? Gearalt Finlay
Speedy deletion declined: Academia.edu
Hello TrulyBlue. I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of Academia.edu, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: The article makes a credible assertion of importance or significance, sufficient to pass A7. I'm not criticising your tag, but since you tagged it it has been expanded, and now claims to be "one of the largest social networking sites for academics." Consider PROD or AfD if you like, but if that's true it probably deserves an article. Regards, JohnCD (talk) 20:37, 19 May 2010 (UTC)
You are now a Reviewer
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.
I've blocked that account for vandalism. I've left a note on its talk page to say I think it's compromised. In 2009, editing usefully. Gap. 2011, kiddy vandalism. Equals someone's got hold of an old password, in my view. Peridon (talk) 19:51, 9 June 2011 (UTC)
Hasty addition of speedy deletion template to Inhale the sea
Hi TrulyBlue! I was a bit confused as to why you hastily added a CSD A3 tag to Inhale the sea, after just 1 minute of its creation. Thank you for new page patrolling but I would suggest that you start from the back of the patrol log. This is because, hasty addition of speedy deletion templates could discourage new editors. This could be taken as an attempt to bite newcomers. Thank you. Puffin Let's talk! 16:01, 7 August 2011 (UTC)

New Page Patrol survey
New page patrol – Survey Invitation
Hello TrulyBlue! The WMF is currently developing new tools to make new page patrolling much easier. Whether you have patrolled many pages or only a few, we now need to know about your experience. The survey takes only 6 minutes, and the information you provide will not be shared with third parties other than to assist us in analyzing the results of the survey; the WMF will not use the information to identify you.
Please click HERE to take part.
Invitation to wikiFeed
I'm part of a team that is researching ways to help Wikipedia editors find interesting content to contribute to Wikipedia. More specifically, we are investigating whether content from news sources can be used to enhance Wikipedia editing. We have created a tool, called wikiFeed, that allows you to specify Twitter and/or RSS feeds from news sources that are interesting to you. wikiFeed then helps you make connections between those feeds and Wikipedia articles. We believe that using this tool may be a lot of fun, and may help you come up with some ideas on how to contribute to Wikipedia in ways that interest you. Please participate! To do so, complete this survey and follow this link to our website. Once you're there, click the "create an account" link to get started.
For more information about wikiFeed, visit our project page. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask via my talk page, or by email at email@example.com. We appreciate your time and hope you enjoy playing with wikiFeed!
Thanks for your feedback on my entry
Many thanks for your feedback on my Forensic Risk Alliance page. I do work for the company's PR agency but wasn't trying flout any of Wiki's rules - We have been getting together more verifiable information and citation, but I don't want to get things wrong again. Is there a way we can test the new content before putting it live so that I can make sure that it's OK and, if it's not, inform the company about what they need to do to be included in the future. I hope this is the right place to ask this question. Hope so, if not, very sorry.
Speedy deletion nomination of Chobham RFC
A tag has been placed on Chobham RFC requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a club, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.
If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, you can place a request here. Roger (Dodger67) (talk) 17:07, 11 June 2013 (UTC)
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.
