Help Editing[edit]

Marlith, I would like to seek help from you to edit the article about Miss Earth in order to remove the advertisement tag. I have removed a lot of peacock wordings and advertisement lines but still unsure if the advertisement tag should be removed now. I think the "Pageant system" section of the article needs to be reformed. Thank you in advance!

--Richie Campbell (talk) 20:40, 12 January 2008 (UTC)

Thank you very much for the helpful references and for the welcome words from you. I will use the Wikipedia guides that you shared to me as a reference in the future and for sure I will read it over and over again. --Richie Campbell (talk) 22:27, 13 January 2008 (UTC)


Marmar! You type the break xhtml code wrong, it's

<br />

anyways, I came here to ask who you think'll win the MfD. Get the in-joke from before? No, you wouldn't 'cause you're not from our quaint town in SC. We do weird things with the syllables, at our school, like I'd be Andy from Andrew Kanode. 'Yo momma. Yamakiri→ГC← 12-27-2007 • 18:43:51

RfA thanks[edit]

DirkvdM orosi chalet.jpg

Dear WikipedianMarlith, here is a little note to say thank you for your kind support on my request for adminship which succeeded with a final result of (72/19/6).

Now that I am a sysop, do not hesitate to contact me with any queries you have. I would be glad to help you along with the other group of kind and helpful administrators.

Thank you again and I look forward to editing alongside you in the future. — E talk 12:33, 28 December 2007 (UTC)

Happy New Year[edit]

No, that's perfectly fine with me for you to use the code, since I am not currently using it for my sig. Just credit me for the sig according to CC-BY-SA 3.0 on my userpage. Cheers. miranda 23:37, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletes of user talk pages[edit]

I declined the speedy deletion of User talk:Alfaba, User talk:AntiClueBot, and User talk:Kkrouni‎ because I did not understand what deleting those user talk pages had to do with non-controversial housekeeping activities. Generally, user talk pages do not make good candidates for speedy deletion so there needs to be a specific rationale to do so. --Metropolitan90 (talk) 01:28, 7 January 2008 (UTC)


Get out of my head [1], you're freaking me out!!--12 Noon  05:17, 8 January 2008 (UTC)

No, no, no, no, no, no. Look @ the history [2], this is humor!--12 Noon  05:29, 8 January 2008 (UTC)
AACCcckkkk!!! OK, the userpage of the author was up for MfD, I opined that I might bring this article to AfD, the author then blanked the article, someone on patrol reverted it as vandalism, I then undid the revert so I could nominate it for CSD, I added {{db-blanked}} but ran into an ec because of [3]. Since I have to explain it, I believe you should not be deleted.--12 Noon  05:40, 8 January 2008 (UTC)

regarding Image:ELO circa 1979.jpg[edit]

Rationales need to state the name of the article the image is used in.--Rockfang (talk) 01:40, 9 January 2008 (UTC)

Thanks, I will take not to that. Marlith T/C 01:42, 9 January 2008 (UTC)

EFD comment?[edit]

Hey Marlith, was wondering what you thought of this comment at your EFD. Do you know this guy? If not, I think it should probably be reverted. Drop me a line when you can, okay? Thanks. GlassCobra 07:10, 9 January 2008 (UTC)

You should consider Lick Wilmerding. It's a good school, and I know people there. Urban's good too. BoL 02:21, 10 January 2008 (UTC)

Why did you undo my edit? It's the truth. :( (talk) 02:05, 10 January 2008 (UTC)

Because you don't have any proof. BoL 02:21, 10 January 2008 (UTC)
It is trivial. As for Lick, well my brother did not get in, so if he dosen't I will likely not. Anyways, applications are due tomorrow. Marlith T/C 02:40, 10 January 2008 (UTC)
Good luck. BoL 03:36, 10 January 2008 (UTC)

PinkXjellocreature (talk) 07:22, 10 January 2008 (UTC)


Hi Marlith, I notice you added a username block notice to User talk:TOILET WATER. I have a couple of issue with this. First there was already a block notice on this talk page and the user was indef blocked for vandalism, not for an inappropriate username. Second, by placing a block notice on the talk page you implied that you were the blocking admin, which you were not. Could I ask you to take a little more care in the future, even with highly inappropriate users like Toilet Water? Thanks, Gwernol 01:47, 11 January 2008 (UTC)

Forgive me for that and thanks for the note. I will take more care in the future. Marlith T/C 01:55, 11 January 2008 (UTC)
No worries, just wanted to point it out. Its definitely not a big deal. Thanks for the reply. Best, Gwernol 02:04, 11 January 2008 (UTC)

Be careful when reverting edits[edit]

As pointed out in this edit summary the entirety of the thread is over at the other editor's talk page. (talk) 17:43, 12 January 2008 (UTC)

That's ok. However, there's little point in archiving -- my IP number shifts, and experience tells me if I can end up with an address from which someone else has used to edit (which has happened on a couple of times), then someone else can end up with my old number (and would be very confused about a conversation they'd never had). Cheers. (talk) 17:50, 12 January 2008 (UTC)

Admin coaching[edit]

I saw your request on WP:ADCO, and I'm willing to admin coach you. Please reply on my talk page about the matter. Cheers, bibliomaniac15 21:14, 12 January 2008 (UTC)

I created your page at User:Marlith/Admin coaching. Please also remember to move your request in WP:ADCO to matched. Admin coaching consists mostly about questions that test how you would do as an administrator, so you may want to keep it on your watchlist. bibliomaniac15 21:43, 12 January 2008 (UTC)

Deepest apologies. Marlith T/C 02:12, 13 January 2008 (UTC)


Hello Marlith. The reference to World Book Online that you recently added to Encyclopedia Britannica refers to a general article about encyclopedias by Paul Kobasa that can't be opened by those who don't have an account at World Book Online. Since you didn't add anything to the main text to explain what the reference shows, it doesn't appear too useful to me. EdJohnston (talk) 18:19, 13 January 2008 (UTC)


Why was User:Kkrouni blocked indefinitely? It says in the log that its because of sockpuppetry, but...

I know i've been gone for most of a year, since summer, but...why have all my friends seem to have disappeared like this? T_T SilverserenC 19:25, 13 January 2008 (UTC)

Desperate Herald for A User Adoption[edit]

I have reason to believe I deperatley require a temporary adopter, to ensure I learn about WIkipedia, diminish my ignorance regarding editing, as well as protect Wikipedia from the damage I unfortunatly (yet most likely) will unleash. Where can I find an adopter? Please post a reply on my talk page. Thanks!

<font=3> Thanks for your support, my request for adminship passed 60/0/0 yesterday!

I want to thank Mrs.EasterBunny and Royalbroil for nominating me, those who updated the RfA tally, and everyone for their support and many kind words. To paraphrase a president ... I wish my mum and dad could see the comments made. My dad would be so proud to see the comments ... and my mum would have believed them". I will do my best to use the new tools carefully and responsibly (and you may be surprised to find that I have not deleted all of the pages by accident..... yet).

Re your adoptee[edit]

Hi. I was just going through the category of users requesting adoption, trying to clear out any that have already been adopted etc. I notice that you seem to have adopted User:YouWiki. I would like to ask you to look into two things please: first of all, the user has three adoption templates, including one indicating that the user has been adopted by you, and another one requesting adoption. I'm wondering if the latter is there in error and can be removed, to help clean up the adoption category (since I think usually one adoptee has only one adopter, though an adopter can have more than one adoptee). The other thing is that the user seems to have redirected their user and talk pages to pages with confusing strange-font names, making it difficult and confusing to find out what the user's actual username is. This could be a barrier to people trying to communicate with the user. I wonder if I could ask you to influence the user to have a more conventional user talk page. Thanks! --Coppertwig (talk) 22:40, 22 January 2008 (UTC)

Hey, Marlith!!![edit]

Hey. Regarding blogs, will it be deemed unacceptaable if I create a blog that is solely relavent to Wikipedia?

Is Wikilove commonly refered to around here, or was it made with good intentions but usualy ignored, and iregardless to the editing of Wikipedia (note that I completely support Wikilove-it's just that I am wondering if it is commonly refered to and/or mentioned).

Term paper[edit]

I've reverted some large edits by another editor to this article of yours - because they seemed to me to be 'cover' for the insertion of a link to a (rather terrible) pay-per-essay 'mill'. I initially thought the article was originated by the person who made these additions, so I prodded it. But I see there was an original article of yours underneath there, so I've reverted to that!

Your tutorial[edit]

You indicated, both at User:Enochlau/Signpost tutorial series and at this posting at the Signpost that you'd completed a tutorial on vandalism fighting. However, you've not provided a link on the tutorial series page to the page with your tutorial, as the other editors have done (at least for completed tutorials).

If you haven't actually posted the tutorial to Wikipedia (as a subpage), you need to do so in order that other editors can review it. It's never going to get into the Signpost otherwise. If the tutorial does exist on Wikipedia, please link to it.

Until you do link to it, I suggest that you remove the "Done" annotation in the table listing the tutorials. -- John Broughton (♫♫) 20:42, 17 February 2008 (UTC)

I finally figured out those Parser Functions! But I don't know how to use them well. Remember {{Bluebox1}}? Well, it's siblings were deleted, so I moved it to {{Standardbox}} and gave it parameters, like the {{Joy Message}} I made. For example:

  • {{Standardbox|A bullet}}
  1. {{Standardbox||Numbered Text}}

Well, the only thing is, it doesn't allow for more than one of each, and I don't exactly know what I'm trying to do. Help/Suggestions? PS I intentionally did the box like that. YamakiriTC§03-8-2008 • 00:19:44

Vandalism reversion[edit]

Hi. If you are reverting vandalism, please make sure to double check your reversions, and if you've made a mistake, to self-revert: [5]. It is frustrating to actually make a genuine change to the encyclopedia, only to have someone who is going too quickly revert you without comment. (talk) 23:53, 29 March 2008 (UTC)

Yup, no problem, just constructive criticism. May I suggest that most people who are vandalizing a page aren't going an edit summary: if you have access to edit summaries on your screen, this might help with the process. (talk) 23:58, 29 March 2008 (UTC)


I have no problem with you making sure that wikipedia is correct, but why did you revert the edit that i made? it certainly was not vandalism, and it is simply insulting to be reverted without you giving an explanation. Thank you. (talk) 01:12, 30 March 2008 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Miscellany for deletion/Secret pages ?[edit]

Dear Sir, I wonder what your ideas are about the deletion of secret pages. Master Redyva (Would you mind taking another "look see" at Stuart Baird?)

Last warning?[edit]

I seriously have no idea what you think i was vandalizing. Everything that i have written recently has been truthful. When you give a warning, please tell what i did wrong. Thanks! Love, (talk) 23:00, 9 April 2008 (UTC)

Wikipedia Signpost tutorial series[edit]

Hi Marlith,

Thanks for offering to write articles for the Wikipedia Signpost tutorial series. Just letting you know that we have run out of tutorials to use in the Signpost, and so if you have time, it would be great if you could make a start with some of the topics that you have claimed, but not yet finished! Thanks! enochlau (talk) 23:37, 9 April 2008 (UTC)

399 to go[edit]

We are almost done, Category:Articles lacking sources from June 2006 is down to less the 400 articles to find references for. I would like to thank you for listing yourself as a volunteer at Wikipedia:Unreferenced articles and would like to take this opportunity to invite you to visit the project again and work on getting the last few articles referenced. We started with 5,572 and we are in the home stretch, please come and try to do a couple a day and we can finish it up in no time. Jeepday (talk) 02:22, 11 April 2008 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:BitTorrent Software.jpg)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:BitTorrent Software.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Sir, how would one request to have an article deleted? Master Redyva 13:46, April 19, 2008 (UTC)

Thank you Sir for your quick reply and always I thank you for your help and reliable info. Please see Joachim Koester. I believe this article needs to be deleted : Low quality external links; Poorly sourced (reliable third-party sources?); Wikipedia:Notability, is Joachim Koester notable? Tell me what you think. Thank you again Sir. Master Redyva 15:52, April 19, 2008 (UTC)
"I can NOT emphasize this enough. There seems to be a terrible bias among some editors that some sort of random speculative 'I heard it somewhere' pseudo information is to be tagged with a 'needs a cite' tag. Wrong. It should be removed, aggressively, unless it can be sourced." –Jimmy Wales
ALSO: External Links appear to be studios or info about exhibits. I wonder if this could fall into WP:NOT#MYSPACE. Master Redyva 15:52, April 19, 2008 (UTC)
Thank you as always Sir. Master Redyva 17:04, April 21, 2008 (UTC)
Might as well withdraw it, even though I still believe it is a "piss poor" article. Thanks as always and I hope you have a good day Sir. Master Redyva 16:24, April 23, 2008 (UTC)


Hi. Your edit summary on the Attack on Pearl Harbor says "NAIR" which is an acronym I'm not familiar with. I assume the "R" might stand for "reference", but what does the rest mean? Thanks. Ed Fitzgerald (unfutz) (talk / cont) 00:28, 20 April 2008 (UTC)

10,000 edits[edit]

Hi there, i put my name on the barnstar list for 10,000 edits by the end of the year. Ive just made 10,000 but about 2,000 of those were in 2007. Just to clarify, am i entitled to a barnstar now or do i need to make the additional 2,000 edits? Please feel free to reply at my talk page. Yours very much.

I will do, yours Realist2 ('Come Speak To Me') 16:50, 20 April 2008 (UTC)

I'd say thanks there, but I'd have to learn how first. Thanks for putting me as friend and inviting me to your group! (Maybe I should actually explore the account settings lol) And you've got a zillion pictures there! Yamakiri TC § 04-23-2008 • 20:46:48


Hey! :D Remember me? Just letting you know that the blue bar on your user page is obscuring the blue links in the box at the moment.  :-) Have a great day! - Jameson L. Tai talkcontribs

Perhaps a lighter blue... or an orange/yellow box different from your current orange background would work.  :-) - Jameson L. Tai talkcontribs 19:36, 24 April 2008 (UTC)

Category:Wood Badger Wikipedians[edit]

Wikipedia:User categories for discussion: "Category:Wood Badger Wikipedians". Kind Sir, what are your thoughts on this? I am under the impression it is a silly catergory that needs to be deleted. Most of the voters who are voting to keep are Boy Scouts. Conflict of Interest? What do you think? Master Redyva (talk) 18:13, 28 April 2008 (UTC)

Hi Marlith[edit]

I'm not sure if you will remeber me, but you adopted me some time ago. But in between i last left you a comment I haven't had any internet connection. But now i have, and I'm back.

So i thought i would leave you a comment. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Mr.whiskers (talkcontribs) 10:53, 3 May 2008 (UTC)


Yes Please, unfortunetly i have forgotten the majority in this time.

Heads up[edit]

There's a discussion over at the Award Center talk page regarding your adoption challenge. I'd be glad if you left a comment. Thanks --SharkfaceT/C 01:55, 5 May 2008 (UTC)

re: barnstar[edit]

Thanks, but I think you already gave me one for that [7]. Also, you may want to use a different title for your new sections. I thought you meant Bullshit when I first saw your diff. J.delanoygabsadds 00:03, 6 May 2008 (UTC)

It's fine, I like getting extra barnstars :P J.delanoygabsadds 00:07, 6 May 2008 (UTC)

Humm... An article improvement duel?[edit]

Well, that's a toughie! I suppose I accept your challenge but let's start on Saturday (Honors classes are a killer!) I wonder which article I'll do... Yamakiri TC § 05-8-2008 • 20:52:57

Argh! Can't find any that are "just right" Yamakiri TC § 05-8-2008 • 21:15:12
I have chosen my weapon and it shall be *holds up shiny flashing link* Dragon Treasures. I will pwn you Kevin! Because I know the creator!!!!! (Well not really I know his mom because she's my piano teacher but it I think that I can use her as a proxy) Yamakiri TC § 05-8-2008 • 21:43:17
Oh, never mind, I don't have an article. THE FRIGGIN' THING WAS A7'd JUST SEVEN MINUTES AFTER BEING CREATED! And I know that I always loose in arguments on Wikipedia, and the lack of conductive debate and the overly bureaucratic nature of the system makes me want to log out and never come back. But I can't use making a new account to solve my problems so I'll just fall out of tune with the Wiki. Yamakiri TC § 05-8-2008 • 22:43:07

Pwnage! The awesomeness of being a sysop, 'crat, and checkuser. If you make an account then I'll give you a mop! Yamakiri TC § 05-12-2008 • 20:38:40

New Focus at Wikipedia:Unreferenced articles[edit]

Invisible Barnstar.png The Invisible Barnstar
Thank you for your continued work and assistance on Wikipedia:Unreferenced articles, referencing and generally cleaning up articles that have needed attention for a long time. Your good work goes unseen unless someone disagrees ;) Jeepday (talk) 12:02, 28 May 2008 (UTC)

The huge set of unreferenced articles from June of 2006 is finally completed. Thank you for your contributions. The new focus at Wikipedia:Unreferenced articles is Category:Articles lacking sources from July 2006 which as of May 28 is only 1,322 articles and should go much quicker. Thank you to everyone who has contributed and listed themselves as a volunteer. Jeepday (talk) 12:02, 28 May 2008 (UTC)

Shooter Maker[edit]

Hi, I'm the one who used to be at the IP of That was before I moved and before I registered here at Wikipedia. I just now discovered that the page (Shooter Maker) was deleted. Thanks for offering me the chance to give my input, although I arrived too late.

Unfortunately, there really isn't much information on the software and no one seems interested in it. I created the page first in hope that someone who knew something about it could help it along. However, that didn't happen. I do actually have the software and have used it. However, I had no sources except my own experience to base my information off of. Anyway, although it is sad to see the only non-obscure location on the internet to have information about Shooter Maker disappear, I must accept it's fate. However, if you can provide me with the content of the final version of the page, it would be much appreciated. I can't seem to find the content of the page anywhere. I would like to know what it ended up like in it's final state. Well, at least the Sim RPG Maker and Fighter Maker pages that I created are doing much better and have grown.

The CIA and the Cult of Intelligence[edit]

Hello. I'm contacting you and other members of WikiProject Books in order to find if you are interested in collaborating to expand and improve The CIA and the Cult of Intelligence article to make it worthy of becoming a featured article candidate, in light of the fact that it is the first book the U.S. government ever went to court to censor before its publication. --Loremaster (talk) 22:21, 24 June 2008 (UTC)

You can read an online copy of the book in the Questia Online Library: The CIA and the Cult of Intelligence --Loremaster (talk) 22:32, 24 June 2008 (UTC)

Just a heads up[edit]

I thought you might like to know that the Awards Center page has been deleted, along with its newsletter.  :(

So, where do we go from here?

To new and even more interesting projects, of course!

As announced in the newsletter, I've been preparing to co-coordinate a large collaboration/competition called Around the World. It was going to be run at the Awards Center, but since that no longer exists, the collaboration will be hosted somewhere else.

Around the World will begin July 15th as planned - it's location will be announced soon.

It'll be a blast. In the competition, participants will be helping to develop over 200 pages (drafts, which will be moved to article space once they are ready), using advanced tools to edit every single one of them!

This is going to be interesting.

And the event shall have awards which are being created specifically for it as we speak!

If you would like me to keep you informed of this and other interesting collaborations I'll be working on and/or organizing in the future, please drop me a note on my talk page, and I'll be happy to keep you in the know.

I look forward to your reply.

Just a friendly note on your signature at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Matthew Cameron. To me, it just looks like a black box -- either my browser isn't showing the script correctly, or the font is so low contrast I can't see it. Thought you'd like to know it's hard to read. --Fabrictramp | talk to me 23:47, 27 June 2008 (UTC)
