One way to contact me is to edit this page and add a section at the bottom (click here to do that). If your topic concerns a particular Wikipedia article, please mention the article name. To cause your edit to be signed and timestamped when you save it, please sign it with four tilde characters (like this: ~~~~). If you don't do any of this I'll probably be able to figure it out anyhow, but I would appreciate your trying to avoid making responding to you difficult for me.

I will generally respond on this page inside the section which has been added unless you request otherwise. Please watch this page if you leave me a message.

Regarding Roseturnip2[edit]

Looks like his last autoblock expired and he made a new account. I also think his block should be indef, and not 31 hours. Command and Conquer Expert! speak to me... 07:00, 5 July 2015 (UTC)

I've reblocked this userid with an indefinite expiry. Wtmitchell (talk) (earlier Boracay Bill) 07:55, 5 July 2015 (UTC)
I've opened a quick request on WP:SPI so a checkuser can get his underlying IP and impose a longer block. Command and Conquer Expert! speak to me... 08:00, 5 July 2015 (UTC)

How do I add citations

Talk:Tagalog move request to restore the old location, if you're interested. — kwami (talk) 04:18, 25 July 2015 (UTC)


No harm, no foul...but your reversion of my edit to Rickover's page has in turn been reverted. The small addition I've made to the article directly links to how Rickover created NR as a dual-hatted entity (U.S. Navy and Atomic Energy Commission). This was the most abbreviated way to add this material to the Rickover article, and it is any case highly relevant.

Hmm... I did that reversion from WP:Huggle, a vandal-fighting tool, after a quick look through a small porthole at a single edit. After taking a second and longer look, I conclude that this isn't at all related to vandalism. I have my doubts about whether that lengthy quote over at Naval Reactors#NR's creation as a "dual-hatted" entity meets WP:FUC, but that is outside of my usual areas of concern (as, for that matter, is this whole topical area) and I won't quibble about it now. The point may be raised by others, though. Cheers, Wtmitchell (talk) (earlier Boracay Bill) 00:46, 27 July 2015 (UTC)

"Is there a suggestion for a change to the article content based on info from this article and supported by citing it?" See Talk:Diary of a Japanese Military Brothel Manager―― Phoenix7777 (talk) 11:14, 3 August 2015 (UTC)

I'm going to have to bail out on this unless it becomes a discussion item on the article talk page -- and perhaps even then; I've got too much real life stuff competing for my time presently. Wtmitchell (talk) (earlier Boracay Bill) 12:09, 3 August 2015 (UTC)

Moving Burma to Myanmar - new 2015 poll[edit]

You participated in a Burma RM in the past so I'm informing you of another RM. I hope I didn't miss anyone. New move attempt of Burma>Myanmar Fyunck(click) (talk) 09:11, 7 August 2015 (UTC)

There is a move discussion in progress on Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Burma (Myanmar) which affects the recently renamed page Myanmar. Please participate on that page and not in this talk page section. Thank you. Sawol (talk) 16:22, 20 August 2015 (UTC)
