'Ray Gun'[edit]

Do you have a source for the redlink you added to Riot control here [1]? MickMacNee (talk) 10:14, 18 March 2008 (UTC), dont know how to cite things. vinsfan368 (talk) 22:44, 18 March 2008 (UTC)

Ah I see. I have removed it now as the 'ray gun' already has an extensive article at Active Denial System. MickMacNee (talk) 11:06, 19 March 2008 (UTC)

Your edit to RMS Titanic[edit]

Your report of the death of Millvina Dean, on the RMS Titanic page, needs to be backed up with a citation in accord with the WP:BLP policy. Can you provide a source for this? Best. --Old Moonraker (talk) 15:15, 29 March 2008 (UTC)

Discussions from April to June 2008[edit]


Welcome to the 1.0 Editorial Team[edit]

Hi, and thanks for signing up for the 1.0 team. We've been testing a bot for article selection, and you can see the preliminary results here. We're currently tweaking the algorithm and writing more parameters, so we can select 20-30,000 articles for the next offline release (Version 0.7). In the meantime, we're (very) slowly reviewing manual nominations for V0.7, as well as trying to coordinate assessment work with WikiProjects - right now we're looking atconsidering a rewrite of the parameters. We also aim to encourage improvements to core topics and the core supplement (which are important but often weak articles) through theCore Topics Collaboration (though this has been poorly supported of late).

So, do any of these things interest you? Please let me know how you'd like to participate. Thanks again, Walkerma (talk) 05:31, 11 April 2008 (UTC)

Hi! Our new Core Topics Collaboration is Boat. Would you be able to help expand the article or clean it up! This important article really needs a lot of work. Thanks,Walkerma (talk) 02:49, 22 April 2008 (UTC)

Re: "This time of night"[edit]

Just to tell you, it's not night for some people. Just an FYI, future reference Vinson (talk) 22:32, 19 May 2008 (UTC)

I suppose you're right, I've made the change. Thanks for the heads up ——Ryan | tc 23:05, 19 May 2008 (UTC)

Your VandalProof Application[edit]

Thank you for your interest in VandalProof, Vinsfan368. As you may know, VP is a very powerful program, and in fact the just released 1.3 version has even more power. Because of this we must uphold strict protocols before approving a new applicant. Regretfully, I have chosen to decline your application at this time. The reason for this is that:

Sorry, you currently have too few edits.

Please note it is nothing personal by any means, and we certainly welcome you to apply again soon. Thank again for your interest in VandalProof. PS2pcGAMER (talk) 10:04, 26 May 2008 (UTC)

June 2008[edit]

Information.png Welcome to Wikipedia. The recent edit you made to Natural number has been reverted, as it appears to be unconstructive. Use the sandbox for testing; if you believe the edit was constructive, ensure that you provide an informative edit summary. You may also wish to read the introduction to editing. Thanks. Shapiros10 WuzHere  22:45, 4 June 2008 (UTC)

It's okay. I'm using it too! Shapiros10 WuzHere  23:02, 4 June 2008 (UTC)
I just rv'd some nasty vandalism on your userpage! Shapiros10 WuzHere  23:05, 4 June 2008 (UTC)
Crap, hit the button on huggle right after you reverted it. RedThunder 23:19, 4 June 2008 (UTC)
Seriously sorry about that. RedThunder 23:22, 4 June 2008 (UTC)


Hi Vinsfan,

Not sure why you reverted my edits back to the version I reverted. I did this because the same info was listed three times ( complete with link which when clicked on leads to 'Page not found'). I also tidied up the punctuation, corrected spelling mistakes, removed another dead link and introduced bold font where appropriate. I didn't delete any info which wasn't repeated. Of course you can do what you like with the page, but I was just trying to improve it!

Scrabble1968 (talk) 20:59, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for your reply - I've now registered so that other editors are less likely to think my edits are vandalism!


Scrabble1968 (talk) 22:13, 5 June 2008 (UTC)


Hello Vinsfan, I've moved your pages User:Vinsfan368:WikiProjects, User:Vinsfan368:Autograph book, and User:Vinsfan368:Awards to User:Vinsfan368/WikiProjects,User:Vinsfan368/Autograph book, and User:Vinsfan368/Awards respectively. Since a backslash is the proper way to create subpages in Wikipedia, the versions with the colon took the place of a user page for a (though unlikely) user with that name. You may wish to go and fix you links the old pages, since they will be deleted momentarily. Thanks.--ÐeadΣyeДrrow (Talk - Contribs) 21:37, 10 June 2008 (UTC)

edit conflict[edit]

Hi - sorry about the mixup, but there was an edit conflict when you reverted the vandalism, thus I accidently reverted your edit. Vishnava talk 22:25, 10 June 2008 (UTC)

I see RedThunder had the same issue :) Vishnava talk 22:25, 10 June 2008 (UTC)

RE: World of Kung Fu[edit]

Hi there. The number of players the game has isn't really relevant, as per WP:BIG. What it came down to was that this is just another of the huge number of MMORPGs available on the Internet, with no distinguishing characteristics, or any indication that it has any significance. I'd recommend you take a look at WP:WEB and WP:RS. GlassCobra 22:41, 10 June 2008 (UTC)

Cambrian explosion task force[edit]


I'm posting this message because you're listed as a participant in WikiProject Geology. I've set up a task force aiming to improve Wikipedia's coverage of theCambrian explosion, and I was wondering whether you may be interested in helping out? If you would like to help in any way, you could cast an eye over the task force page and see if there are any articles or tasks that take your fancy! Any contributions would be greatly appreciated.

Best wishes,

Your VandalSniper application[edit]

Pictogram voting delete.svg Good day, and thank you for your recent application to use the counter-vandalism tool,VandalSniper. As you may be aware, VandalSniper is a very powerful tool, that has the potential to disrupt the encyclopedia if misused. On this basis, regretfully I have chosen to decline your application at this time, in that I do not believe you have demonstrated an adequete level of trust to be given access to the program.

Please reapply in the future, when you believe you have met the levels of trust required, and in the meantime you may wish to visit this resource for information on alternative Counter-Vandalism Tools.

Kind regards,
Anthøny 12:49, 20 June 2008 (UTC)
