English English: Hello and welcome to my talk page on the English Wikipedia. I also have talk pages on the Meta Wikipedia (for templates and interwiki) and Wikimedia Commons (for images and internationalization) that I check less often. You should e-mail me if your issue is time sensitive or private. I also occasionally read my talk pages on the English Wikibooks, Spanish Wikipedia, German Wikipedia, French Wikipedia, and other projects. You may leave me a message at any of the sites if there is no hurry.

Let me know if you want me to reply on another talk page (like your own). It is easier for me to keep track of conversations if they are located all in one place, so I will reply on this page by default. Sometimes my schedule is a little crazy, and it might take a few days before I can respond. Other times, I just need a while to contemplate before responding. If I do not have anything useful to add to what you said, I might not respond at all. If you expect a response, feel free to drop me a nudge after a day or two asking for one.

Please add new comments at the bottom of this page. Don't forget to sign your name by typing "~~~~~" (without the quotes) at the end of your message before you save it.

Note: This is my talk page and I reserve the right to remove abusive, bothersome, annoying, or inane comments without any response or regrets. Please remember to keep things focused on Wikipedia rather than personal interest topics. (Personal stuff belongs in e-mail, not on public display.)

Speedy deletion nomination of Wikipedia:WikiProject Category Suppression/Templates/Classicon[edit]

A tag has been placed on Wikipedia:WikiProject Category Suppression/Templates/Classicon requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section T3 of the criteria for speedy deletion because it is an unused duplicate of another template, or a hard-coded instance of another template. After seven days, if it is still unused and the speedy deletion tag has not been removed, the template will be deleted.

If the template is not actually the same as the other template noted, please feel free to remove the speedy deletion tag and please consider putting a note on the template's page explaining how this one is different so as to avoid any future mistakes (<noinclude>{{substituted}}</noinclude>).

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page's talk page, where you can 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. John Vandenberg (chat) 11:52, 13 January 2014 (UTC)

@John Vandenberg: I don't object to the deletion, but the links to the template should be cleaned up before a deletion. I assume that you will take care of that since you prod'ed it? Otherwise probably a regular deletion instead of a speedy one should be undertaken. Either way, thanks for all your efforts in cleaning this stuff up. Also, thanks for keeping me informed. I don't even remember half of this stuff. I think I just did a lot of copying and pasting based off of some other wikiproject. Things weren't nearly so well organized back then, and then I got busy with off-wiki life, and never really looked back at this project. Sorry to have left a bit of a (well-intentioned) mess behind.

OK, I've deleted all of the project categorisation templates as author request (G7). The templates are still mentioned at Wikipedia:WikiProject Category Suppression/Templates; I'll leave that for you to edit to taste, or tag as {{db-g7}}. It may be a bit of a mess now, but there is still definitely a need for constant monitoring for new templates which need category suppression, and there may be old templates which still need it. I know there are lots of userboxes without category suppression, as I have added it to many (especially geographical, as people like to add country and state, and city userboxed, but dont want to be in all three cats). At Wikipedia:Categories for discussion/Log/2014 January 13#Category:WikiProject Category Suppression pages, user:Funandtrvl suggested the WikiProject might become a taskforce of another project. I think that idea has merit. Probably Wikipedia:WikiProject Templates..? I would join that task force if you are still interested? John Vandenberg (chat) 12:42, 14 January 2014 (UTC)

I have also nominated Category:WikiProject Category Suppression templates for speedy deletion as it is now empty. You have four days to contest that. I would appreciate it if you could answer the questions at the RfD. John Vandenberg (chat) 10:13, 18 January 2014 (UTC)

Infobox cocktail links broken[edit]

Hello -- I'm not sure if you are aware of the iba-world link issues with the infobox cocktail template that you created. It looks like they updated their site, but I don't expect that there is any automated fix... (talk) 01:44, 4 April 2014 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

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.
