Apologies[edit]

I'm sorry about my recent edits to Pierre-Jean De Smet. It was an honest mistake - I thought what I was reverting was repeated vandalism, not repeated correction of vandalism. &dorno rocks. (talk) 18:45, 9 February 2010 (UTC)

Piranha II[edit]

Hi, please could you explain to me why you keep deleting my contribution to the Piranha II page? I think that I am making a very interesting point, and one which makes the film more enjoyable to watch. It's very disappointing, after spending a lot of time trying to write it as clearly and professionally as I can, to find that no more than 2 minuets after I have posted it, you have already deleted it. As you say, it is not vandalism, so please explain to me why you repeatedly keep deleting my contribution? I am merely trying to add my bit to this wonderful wed-site. If I am doing sometime wrong please tell me, I would appreciate the help.

Sincerely,

James

PS. I am sorry if I have written this in the wrong place, I am just learning how to use Wikipedia. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 92.235.118.152 (talk) 01:29, 2 August 2010 (UTC)

Sorry to butt in, but I saw this comment while going through my Huggle queue. Please read WP:OR for reasoning as to why this is not appropriate for Wikipedia. Also, please sign your posts by typing ~~~~ at the end of the post. GorillaWarfare talk 01:32, 2 August 2010 (UTC)
James: I made one revert, when I saw it on recent changes. Others made the other changes. Simply adding poorly-spelled, unencyclopedic, unsourced material that reads like a fan-club memo is not appropriate. Thanks for keeping an eye out, GorillaWarfare! VKIL (talk) 02:05, 2 August 2010 (UTC)
Of course, sorry about jumping in haha! Just reverted him making the same edit -- I'll try to keep an eye on him, although I did give a thorough explanation of why I reverted on his talk page. GorillaWarfare talk 02:13, 2 August 2010 (UTC)

Same Same But Different[edit]

Hello! I was looking my watchlist and I saw that an IP changed something. So when I saw, was the same guy that you undid the edition. We did it again and I would like to know if there's a way that we can block the IP(s), since he/she's not going to stop editing the same thing all the time. Page in discussion here: Same Same But Different --★Mllb★(talk) 14:27, 4 August 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads-up. He is a vandal, look at his change to Stan Collymore. VKIL (talk) 14:55, 4 August 2010 (UTC)


Hello again! He/She continues editing Same Same But Different, and each time with a different IP... what can we do to stop this? We certainly can't track all those IPs down.--★Mllb★(talk) 21:55, 5 August 2010 (UTC)

Frosty, Heidi and Frank edits[edit]

Your edits to the FHF article were unnecessary because non of the things you removed were libelous. They were things that have been stated on the show many times by the hosts. They can not be referenced because they were never put down in print. I don't see any way of referencing on air conversations except through listener verification. I am also in the process of reverting edits done by 128.125.230.152 as his edits were also unnecessary. Dr. Morbius (talk) 18:57, 5 August 2010 (UTC)

Welcome[edit]

Welcome to the WikiProject Firearms. I hope you enjoy being a member. AliveFreeHappy (talk) 17:57, 20 September 2010 (UTC)

Thanks! I just like shooting holes in stuff. Makes me feel like a big man. Any tips on where I can buy an inexpensive Gatling? J. Edgar Vekilnik, Jr. (talk) 00:41, 21 September 2010 (UTC)

PROD[edit]

I have removed the {{prod}} tag from Profootballtalk.com, which you proposed for deletion. I'm leaving this message here to notify you about it. If you still think the article should be deleted, please don't add the {{prod}} template back to the article. Instead, feel free to list it at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion. Thanks!

Welcome to Project Iowa[edit]

Hi VkiI, I recently promoted myself as a patroller of Iowa's communities articles and you came onto my radar by joining Wikipedia:WikiProject Iowa. I had a good chuckle reading your userpage (especially your footnote #1). I too have been battling vandalism in my short time as a Wikipedia editor. I do not know your method of anti-vandalism as mine is a specifically designed watch list developed by a mentor of mine to be just Iowa communities. From your entry on the Project Iowa page, I hope I can enlist you to join the developing division called Communities (pre-named and previously red-linked). Keep up the good fight.
Just click on the links in the GOOD NEWS notice.

January 2011[edit]

Please do not remove content or templates from pages on Wikipedia, as you did with this edit to Talk:Line of succession to the British throne, without giving a valid reason for the removal in the edit summary. Your content removal does not appear constructive, and has been reverted. Otherwise, please make use of the sandbox if you'd like to experiment with test edits.

My apologies! It was an inadvertent deletion. I grew up before video games, so I am as not as adept with pushing the correct buttons, I hope it has been fixed. Edgar Vekilnik, Jr. (talk) 02:05, 24 January 2011 (UTC)

You deleted comments left on that page by others, which is not permitted. Please read Wikipedia:Talk page guidelines#Others' comments (shortcut → WP:TALKO). Thank you. — SpikeToronto 04:57, 22 January 2011 (UTC)

Yes, thanks for the pile-on. I was already informed of my mistake, and apologized for it, see above. Please read earlier comments before adding your own. Edgar Vekilnik, Jr. (talk) 02:05, 24 January 2011 (UTC)

Ypsilanti Food Co-op[edit]

A good cleanup may help, but don't expect the house to build itself. If you can be bothered to say "keep but cleanup", you can be bothered to at least try a cleanup. Ten Pound Hammer, his otters and a clue-bat • (Otters want attention) 01:55, 13 March 2011 (UTC)

It is fair to recognize that an article needs cleanup even if one knows so little about the topic that one cannot do the cleanup personally. This is a prod to the creators and contributors of the article, who presumably have the knowledge about the topic to do a cleanup. Edgar Vekilnik, Jr. (talk) 02:38, 13 March 2011 (UTC)
And the same thing happens every time. Four years after everyone spams the AFD with "keep but expand", the article hasn't improved one iota. Everyone keeps expecting everyone else to do it, and as a result, nothing ever gets done. Ten Pound Hammer, his otters and a clue-bat • (Otters want attention) 05:51, 13 March 2011 (UTC)
Then fix the article, and quit leaving me messages. I've ever been to Ypsilanti, much less the co-op. For all I know Ypsilanti is a mere conspiracy of cartographers ("Italian spy" spelled backwards or something...) Edgar Vekilnik, Jr. (talk) 19:13, 13 March 2011 (UTC)

Steamboat Pirate[edit]

Hi, thanks for catching the typo. Should this be styled "Steamboat Pirate" rather than "Steamboat Pirate"? The former is how you originally had it prior to my edit.--NapoliRoma (talk) 22:51, 22 September 2011 (UTC)

Per your comment on my talk page: I didn't mean to imply that I wanted to change the wording again -- just how the phrase was italicized. I went ahead and returned it to how it was before my previous edit. Regards, NapoliRoma (talk) 15:08, 23 September 2011 (UTC)

On an unrelated note, thank you for bringing this article to my attention. I nearly swallowed my tongue.--NapoliRoma (talk) 15:15, 23 September 2011 (UTC)

5-part in five O'Brian novels[edit]

That is useful to know about the circumnavigation of the world in five novels. You added that to the lead of each novel's article. Perhaps you could add a brief section in each of the articles as well? Just thinking that the lead should highlight the article, and that is not said in the articles. There is the Continuity section, but that deals with time in the novel versus time in the real world of history, a separate topic from where they went. Just a notion. --Prairieplant (talk) 02:13, 1 December 2016 (UTC)

Good ideas. Not knowing about the circumnavigation I read them out of sequence, which was confusing. Edgar Vekilnik, Jr. (talk) 14:23, 1 December 2016 (UTC)

File source problem with File:Blackbird Bend.png[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Blackbird Bend.png. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear.

If you obtained it from a website, please add a link to the page from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of the website's terms of use of its content. If the original copyright holder is a party unaffiliated with the website, that author should also be credited. Please add this information by editing the image description page.

If the necessary information is not added within the next days, the image will be deleted. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem.
