Microsoft Office 14[edit]

Thank you for creating such a balanced and well-sourced article. If Microsoft Office 12 deserves an article, I see no reason why the next version doesn't, given that there is already talk about it in published, reliable sources. Cheers, Black Falcon 04:21, 19 February 2007 (UTC)


Good call. I'd read the Forbes article as well, but it was oddly worded. I suppose the Tiny Mix Tapes author and I made the same mistake. I emailed the author and he responded, saying that a correction would be posted, hopefully by tomorrow. Is there a word for when Wikipedia corrects a non user-generated source of information? Should we invent a word for it?

Ron Lynch[edit]

I wrote up a brief page, since one was obviously lacking, and then found your user page linked to it. Please feel free to add whatever additional information you can find, since it seems like Lynch's web presence is kind of small. There's a few good photos around (I think the one on IMDB might be best), but I don't know what the legality is on using them. Thanks, Torc2 07:19, 11 October 2007 (UTC)

edit: As for TMT, they are usually pretty reliable, despite their jokey headlines.

Temptation (2007 US game show)[edit]

Nice job with the major cleanup of woot. Ost (talk) 18:48, 27 February 2008 (UTC)


It just seems a little hype-y and not necessarily substantive enough to be included in Wikipedia. I don't doubt the merit of the information contained in the article, nor its relevancy to a certain limited audience, but I don't think the material, in conjunction with the projected audience base, merits inclusion.

Thanks for the feedback on my talk page.[edit]

I've responded there. ATren (talk) 19:18, 20 September 2008 (UTC)

Box Office Mojo[edit]

Really? That is bizarre since Variety would usually be the first to report it or one of the first ones. TJ Spyke 00:21, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

Stephen Toulouse[edit]

I've created a page for you at User:White 720/Stephen Toulouse that contains the latest deleted content and left a note at my own talk page that responds in a little more detail. Let me know if there's anything further I can do to help. Accounting4Taste:talk 16:19, 2 September 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for getting this page put back up, apparently my view that every page has to start somewhere isn't shared by everyone.....JonnybobT 19:00, 3 September 2009 (UTC)

You are now a Reviewer[edit]

Wikipedia Reviewer.svg

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.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles (talk) 01:07, 18 June 2010 (UTC)

re: "sandwich (sic)"[edit]

sandwich is spelled as such, please check a dictionary (or google) before correcting unesusarie spleng mstakes. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:52, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

Thank you for your concern. The [sic] was to humor User:TimSPC who is exceptionally concerned that the Double Down is being labeled a "sandwich." Mr. SPC is upset that an object lacking bread is being called a "sandwich," violating centuries of precedent. Again, thank you for your concern and for your efforts to improve America's leading resource of information. White 720 (talk) 14:22, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

Cherry Shares[edit]

I just read WP:OR, and I don't think that I'm violating it in the "Legality" section of Cherry Shares. For example, the Quatloos cite quite explicitly says that every HYIP is a scam. Is putting that in considered "synthesis"? HYIP Lies (talk) 19:04, 8 November 2010 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

Sure, it's very very old, but this diff, especially "the term applies even in the case when none of the metals is a bread" is the funniest thing I've read all day Achowat (talk) 17:45, 13 March 2012 (UTC)

ANI notice[edit]
