Orphaned non-free image File:Tom99.jpgEdit

 

Thanks for uploading File:Tom99.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image 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 images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Skier Dude (talk) 03:35, 31 October 2011 (UTC)

Category edit to Allium tricoccumEdit

Hi, I'm not sure what you were trying to achieve with your edits at Allium tricoccum. If it was to get "Ramp" listed at Category:Allium, the way to do it is to categorize the redirect, as I've now done. Maybe this isn't what you intended? Peter coxhead (talk) 21:54, 23 March 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for June 11Edit

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Joan Shawlee, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Willard, Critic's Choice and Lover Come Back (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Ted BundyEdit

I see you have reverted my edit on the Ted Bundy article. The reason for my deletion, as part of the serial killers task force, was that there are far two many cat's for this article. I will consult further before making a final decision. I have to say that your edits would carry far more weight if you were a registered user and contributed in a constructive manner. Thank you, David J Johnson (talk) 14:06, 17 July 2013 (UTC)

Could I repectfully ask that if you leave a "contribution" on my Talk page: that you sign your comments, that you check to make sure it makes some sense and is not full of typos. From the comments on this page, it does seem that you have little understanding of how to edit the encyclopedia. Experienced editors are here to help.

On the question of your edit to the Ted Bundy article; I have, as promised, consulted with other members of the community - who look after this page. They all agree that your edit was unnecessary, as there are far too many categories posted there, but we are happy to leave your edit as it stands. Case closed. Regards, David J Johnson (talk) 08:50, 24 July 2013 (UTC)

Jefferson DavisEdit

Greetings! With this edit to the Jefferson Davis article, you stated:

The possessive of Davis is pronounced "Davises" (i.e., the plural is sounded); thus the 's is included. If the plural were not sounded, then Davis' would be correct; but in fact it is sounded and thus Davis' is patently incorrect.

I wanted to point out that the Manual of Style clearly states that either way is accepted, so it's not true that the use of "Davis'" instead of "Davis's" is "patently incorrect". The former was consistently used throughout the article, so there was no need to change it. Omnedon (talk) 17:34, 21 October 2013 (UTC)

PrepackagedEdit

Hey, just wanted to give you a heads up that the word prepackaged is a completely legitimate word, meaning "to pack or wrap (goods, especially food) on the site of production or before sale" and is not, as you seem to frequently put in edits, made up or incorrect. Thanks!--Yaksar (let's chat) 18:20, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

Whoops, meant to include a link, sorry!--Yaksar (let's chat) 18:26, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

Recent edit to Richard Deacon (actor)Edit

  Hello, and thank you for your recent contribution. While the content of your edit may be true, I have removed it because its depth or nature of detail are not consistent with our objectives as an encyclopedia. I recognize that your edit was made in good faith and hope you will familiarize yourself with what Wikipedia is not so we may collaborate in the future. Thank you!

Disambiguation link notification for October 14Edit

Use of apostrophesEdit

Don't mean to step on your toes. Please read MOS:POSS. The way it was written was not incorrect. It might be better to change it to use a pronoun (her) instead. 208.81.212.222 (talk) 18:58, 4 August 2015 (UTC)

Time Is TimeEdit

Good day. I have a quick question about the Cleanup-rewrite template that you added to "Time Is Time". I wasn't certain why it was added and I was just reaching out to see if there is something specific that needs to be changed since the talk page did not state the reason. I was the creator of the page and I will glad make changes if some are necessary. Thank you.LongLiveMusic (talk) 08:24, 3 February 2016 (UTC)

Welcome to Wikipedia from the Medicine WikiProject!Edit

Welcome to Wikipedia and WikiProject Medicine

Welcome to Wikipedia from WikiProject Medicine (also known as WPMED).

We're a group of editors who strive to improve the quality of medical articles here on Wikipedia. One of our members has noticed that you are interested in editing medical articles; it's great to have a new interested editor on board. In your wiki-voyages, a few things that may be relevant to editing Wikipedia articles are:

  • Thanks for coming aboard! We always appreciate a new editor. Feel free to leave us a message at any time on our talk page. If you are interested in joining the project yourself, there is a participant list where you can sign up. Please leave a message on the WPMED talk page if you have any problems, suggestions, would like review of an article, need suggestions for articles to edit, or would like some collaboration when editing!
  • Sourcing of medical and health-related content on Wikipedia is guided by our medical sourcing guidelines, commonly referred to as MEDRS. These guidelines typically require recent secondary sources to support information; their application is further explained here. Primary sources (case studies, case reports, research studies) are rarely used, especially if the primary sources are produced by the organisation or individual who is promoting a claim.
  • The Wikipedia community includes a wide variety of editors with different interests, skills, and knowledge. We all manage to get along through a lot of discussion that happens under the scenes and through the bold, revert, discuss editing cycle. If you encounter any problems, you can discuss them on an article's talk page or post a message on the WPMED talk page.

Feel free to drop a note on my talk page if you have any problems. I wish you all the best on your wiki voyages! Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 11:05, 31 December 2019 (UTC)

July 2020Edit

  Please do not use styles that are unusual, inappropriate or difficult to understand in articles. There is a Manual of Style, and edits should not deliberately go against it without special reason. Thank you. El_C 08:44, 11 July 2020 (UTC)

Edit summariesEdit

Hello, fellow editor. Please consider using edit summaries when you make changes to articles, especially to articles which have achieved featured status, as in Rufus Wilmot Griswold. Those who watch these pages are very vigilant and an edit without an edit summary is a red flag. --Midnightdreary (talk) 13:59, 7 September 2020 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for September 13Edit

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. An automated process has detected that when you recently edited Creation myth, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Literalism. Such links are usually incorrect, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of unrelated topics with similar titles. (Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.)

Calendar Act: DYK candidate?Edit

Thank you for the copyedits. A fresh pair of eyes works wonders, I can't believe how I missed those myself.

Anyway, if you happen to have spotted a good DYK candidate in your fine-comb, please let me know (or leave at the article talk page). Again, thank you. --John Maynard Friedman (talk) 10:38, 14 January 2021 (UTC)
