disappointed to see valuable editors leave...

Block of User_talk:

Please block this IP. They have received a last warning by User:Clementina and continue to vandalize. Thank you. --Chemicalinterest (talk) 15:07, 27 September 2010 (UTC)

4 dims RFD

since it was SNOW/speedy close, could you close the discussion? Purplebackpack89 00:44, 9 October 2010 (UTC)

18px Done. Thanks--Gordonrox24 | Talk 01:36, 9 October 2010 (UTC)

My apologies

I'd like to apologize if it seems that I was making a point with the RFD earlier. I would never intentionally disrupt the project, especially as an administrator. I just feel editors shouldn't be so focused on who can create the most articles. Again, I apologize if it looked like I was making a point. Exert 23:28, 12 October 2010 (UTC)

If I can interject here, I thought it was more bold than pointy, although perhaps Simple Talk would have been the more ideal forum. Kansan (talk) 23:44, 12 October 2010 (UTC)

Quite harsh statement

I have said a rather harsh statement to you on WP:ST. Feel free to reply accordingly. --Chemicalinterest (talk) 00:04, 15 October 2010 (UTC)

Alternative to Facebook?

What do you mean when you say that this site has become an "alternative to Facebook"? I don't use this site for social networking and I don't know of anybody else who does. Considering that this is a basis you have mentioned for mulling having the site closed, I do want to know what you meant.

I have been working on a number of articles. I generally have not nominated them to be GAs or VGAs. I figure that my time is far better spent writing articles (and fighting vandalism) than navigating the GA/VGA process. Kansan (talk) 00:10, 15 October 2010 (UTC)

A side note: I tried to get en:iron through the GA process and it stagnated too, even though so many people were working on it. This definitely quenched my interest in trying to promote new articles. I prefer to create large quantities of medium-quality articles rather than spend all of my time on making tellurium trioxide a VGA. --Chemicalinterest (talk) 11:57, 15 October 2010 (UTC)

Gettysburg Address

Hello, dear TRM! A hundred thanks for your thorough review, and a thousand for your help on Gettysburg Address! :) I just wanted to make sure what you meant by ref 35 being a bare url. Okay, now I'm going to sound like an idiot, goes! Silly as it may sound, I've always thought that it meant a bare link to the website without specifying the date, publishing website, &c in a {{citeweb}}. Could you please be so kind as to clarify its meaning for me, so I can remember it for future reference as well as being able to more correctly fix it? —Clementina talk 09:23, 18 October 2010 (UTC)


I believe the block was correct on technical evidence. --Bsadowski1 16:57, 30 October 2010 (UTC)

Never disagreed with that. The Rambling Man (talk) 16:58, 30 October 2010 (UTC)
Okay, I've seen his unblock request and it seems good enough for me also. --Bsadowski1 17:05, 30 October 2010 (UTC)
Great. The Rambling Man (talk) 17:09, 30 October 2010 (UTC)

Japanese American internment

If you get a chance, could you take a brief look at Japanese American internment, which I'm trying to get to GA? Thanks, Kansan (talk) 17:07, 30 October 2010 (UTC)

I'll see what I can do my friend. The Rambling Man (talk) 17:10, 30 October 2010 (UTC)
Thank you very much for your review. Macdonald-ross brought up some additional points which I hope to address soon. Kansan (talk) 23:38, 9 November 2010 (UTC)

COI re-open?

It wasn't a COI; I was merely undoing BG's archiving of the thing before it had been formally and definitively closed (not to mention the fact that BG was told by repeated editors to stay away from this) Purplebackpack89 18:09, 11 November 2010 (UTC)

As I stated on your talk page, it has been 'formally and definitively closed' by three different people... Goblin 18:26, 11 November 2010 (UTC) I ♥ Fr33kman!


First off, there's no written requirement that ST has to be notified of PADs...Chem just did that with Nickel Creek. Also, I gave Barras a whole week BEFORE I sent it to PAD (a week I was not obliged to give her), and she didn't make a single edit. Anyway, have a nice day! Purplebackpack89 03:32, 16 November 2010 (UTC)

Just a note - Barras is a he. —Clementina talk 06:02, 16 November 2010 (UTC)</small>
I didn't say anywhere there was a written requirement to notify the community but it makes sense, right? To get as many people on to helping with this as possible? I would have thought that was common sense... Anyway, have a nice day! The Rambling Man (talk) 07:18, 16 November 2010 (UTC)

Thanks a lot for you work on the article. I really appreciate it. I'm sadly very busy in real life and don't have the time to work on the articles at the moment. Keep up your great work here and if you need a review some time, just give me a ping. Barras (talk) 21:18, 28 November 2010 (UTC)

Happy New Year
