Good to have you back, —Politizer talk/contribs 23:42, 7 December 2008 (UTC)[reply]
Eh, I never even left... :D But thanks anyway, I really appreciate that. – Amicon (talk) 23:43, 7 December 2008 (UTC)[reply]


I liked it better back when your username was "How do you turn this on." --Dylan620 Contribs Sign! 23:54, 7 December 2008 (UTC)[reply]

It was too long and I fancied a change. – Amicon (talk) 00:06, 8 December 2008 (UTC)[reply]
I still miss "How do you turn this on," though. :P --Dylan620 Contribs Sign! 00:14, 8 December 2008 (UTC)[reply]
I'll have to side with Dylan on this one. :) –Juliancolton Tropical Cyclone 00:34, 8 December 2008 (UTC)[reply]
Gah! You'll have to get used to it I guess – Amicon (talk) 00:40, 8 December 2008 (UTC)[reply]

Lazare Ponticelli[edit]

Whoa, I've only been gone a few days and you've changed your username! I actualy liked HDYTTO, wonder where he went. His username was almost as good as "editorofthewiki"... Anyway, since you worked on Calment I was wondering if you could participate in Lazare Ponticelli's FAR or help with the article yourself. Thanks! ~the editorofthewiki (talk/contribs/editor review)~ 01:46, 8 December 2008 (UTC)[reply]

That's a FA?? Good grief. I dunno, I might look at it, but I did intend to keep away from all things FA for a while... – Amicon (talk) 11:59, 8 December 2008 (UTC)[reply]
Yeah, it went through while Ling was on vacation. :) ~the editorofthewiki (talk/contribs/editor review)~ 21:59, 11 December 2008 (UTC)[reply]

Fine be that way...[edit]

Change your name and don't tell anybody... I see how you are...---Balloonman PoppaBalloon 05:48, 8 December 2008 (UTC)[reply]

Mark Speight[edit]

I don't know if you still visit this page, but I thought you'd like to know that the article you put a lot of work into is now a GA. Good work. Nev1 (talk) 23:47, 28 December 2008 (UTC)[reply]

Help with editor review[edit]

I don't understand, but if you could help me with regard to the review process, and what I need to do, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Dannyza1981 (talk) 17:31, 1 January 2009 (UTC)[reply]

GA Sweeps invitation[edit]

Hello, I hope you are doing well. I am sending you this message since you are a member of the GA WikiProject. I would like to invite you to consider helping with the GA sweeps process. Sweeps helps to ensure that the oldest GAs still meet the criteria, and improve the quality of GAs overall. Unfortunately, last month only two articles were reviewed. This is definitely a low point after our peak at the beginning of the process when 163 articles were reviewed in September 2007. After nearly two years, the running total has just passed the 50% mark. In order to expediate the reviewing, several changes have been made to the process. A new worklist has been created, detailing which articles are left to review. All exempt and previously reviewed articles have already been removed from the list. Instead of reviewing by topic, you can consider picking and choosing whichever articles interest you.

We are always looking for new members to assist with the remaining articles, so if you are interested or know of anybody that can assist, please visit the GA sweeps page. In addition, for every member that reviews 100 articles or has a significant impact on the process, s/he will get an award when they reach that threshold. If only 14 editors achieve this feat starting now, we would be done with Sweeps! Of course, having more people reviewing less articles would be better for all involved, so please consider asking others to help out. Feel free to stop by and only review a few articles, something's better than nothing! Take a look at the list, and see what articles interest you. Let's work to complete Sweeps so that efforts can be fully focused on the backlog at GAN. If you have any questions about the process, reviewing, or need help with a particular article, please contact me or OhanaUnited and we'll be happy to help. --Happy editing!

Unreferenced BLPs[edit]

Hello Amicon! Thank you for your contributions. I am a bot alerting you that 1 of the articles that you created is tagged as an Unreferenced Biography of a Living Person. The biographies of living persons policy requires that all personal or potentially controversial information be sourced. In addition, to ensure verifiability, all biographies should be based on reliable sources. If you were to bring this article up to standards, it would greatly help us with the current 1,194 article backlog. Once the article is adequately referenced, please remove the {{unreferencedBLP}} tag. Here is the article:

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Davey Arthur requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a real person or group of people, but it does not credibly indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to 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, then please contact the deleting administrator.
