D&D articles for Wikipedia 0.7[edit]

Hi there! :)

As someone who's worked on D&D and/or RPG articles before, I'm inviting you to participate in our goal to both improve articles that have been selected to be placed in the next Wikipedia DVD release, as well as nominate more to be selected for this project. Please see the WikiProject D&D talk page for more details. :) BOZ (talk) 18:52, 30 September 2008 (UTC)

I can see that you have put some work into the Gary Gygax article, which I have nominated for a GA review. If there is anything you can do to help it get passed, please join in! Also, feel free to comment on the D&D WikiProject talk page regarding our efforts to get articles in the 0.7 release. BOZ (talk) 13:57, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

Intelligent design[edit]

Intelligent design has been nominated for a featured article review. Articles are typically reviewed for two weeks. Please leave your comments and help us to return the article to featured quality. If concerns are not addressed during the review period, articles are moved onto the Featured Article Removal Candidates list for a further period, where editors may declare "Keep" or "Remove" the article from featured status. The instructions for the review process are here. Reviewers' concerns are here. OrangeMarlin Talk• Contributions 22:01, 14 October 2008 (UTC)


Why did you revert Creation Science rather than discuss when I had given clear reasons both in the edit summary and talk page? --PeterR (talk) 16:13, 27 January 2009 (UTC)

You made a unilateral change, one that others apparently disagree with. I suggest you make a case for the edit on the Talk page, and agree on what to do with the other editors. -- Ec5618 16:17, 27 January 2009 (UTC)

Abrtion talk page[edit]

Why are you only addressing me??? If you want to partake in the discussion that is fine, just complaining is not. As far as I can see, the only thing you have done is tell me off. Try to be helpful to the discussion, not just tell someone off. I'm only trying to help you. And post on my talk page, not the abortion one. --Miagirljmw14 Miagirljmw~talk 01:36, 4 February 2009 (UTC)

You were addressing me. I addressed you. What is the problem here?
Asking the participants in an emotionally charged debate to use correct words seems 'helpful' to me. I'm sorry you don't agree. -- Ec5618 09:16, 4 February 2009 (UTC)



We are considering what to do to make Greyhawk into a "Good Article". Please discuss here if you like, or just check out the article itself and see what you can do. :) BOZ (talk) 03:22, 3 March 2009 (UTC)


Hey there. :) In my quest to get more Wikipedia articles up to "Good Article" status, I've gotten ambitious and decided to take on the Drow article. Yeah, call me crazy, but I'm going to do it. :) I've put a bunch of work into the AD&D 1st edition section, using the sources I had on hand (don't have Q1 so did what I could), though I probably went overboard and will need to trim back a bit. I'm going to start on the 2nd edition section soon, but I would appreciate any help you or anyone you know can give towards building up the publication history properly, finding sources, checking for inaccuracies and completeness, etc. I'd especially need help in bulking up the novels section, as I don't have any of these. Any help you can give, even as a cheering section, would be appreciated. :)

We can get this done... if you haven't seen what we've done already, previous successes include Dragonlance, Drizzt Do'Urden, Dwellers of the Forbidden City, Expedition to the Barrier Peaks, Forgotten Realms, Gary Gygax, Planescape: Torment, The Lost Caverns of Tsojcanth, Tomb of Horrors, White Plume Mountain, and Wizards of the Coast. :) BOZ (talk) 03:22, 5 April 2009 (UTC)

A study on how to cover scientific uncertainties/controversies[edit]

Hi. I have emailed you to ask whether you would agree to participate in a short survey on how to cover scientific uncertainties/controversies in articles pertaining to global warming and climate change (survey described here). If interested, please email me Encyclopaedia21 (talk) 16:26, 5 June 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for the revert[edit]

Thanks for reverting vandalism on my talk page. Much appreciated, mate! Geoff T C 01:18, 23 September 2009 (UTC)

Evolution book[edit]

Currently you have a book at User talk:Ec5618/Laboratory. I think you meant to have it at User:Ec5618/Books/Evolution (and if not, could you move it there, since that's where userbooks generally are?). Thanks. Headbomb {ταλκκοντριβς – WP Physics} 03:25, 4 December 2009 (UTC)

Summary Gen.1[edit]

You deleted the summary of Genesis 1 from creation according to Genesis - why? PiCo (talk) 22:58, 5 December 2009 (UTC)

I reverted a number of recent edits. Most of them from you. Why did you post "Genesis is true!" on a Talk page? I assume you weren't trying to avoid conflict? -- Ec5618 (talk) 23:32, 5 December 2009 (UTC)
You're welcome to revert edits, but I'm puzzled as to why you reverted this one - it seems absolutely essential to me the give a summary of Genesis 1. And if you revert Gen1, why leave Gen2? PiCo (talk) 09:33, 6 December 2009 (UTC)
I reverted the most recent edits made by an editor who spammed Talk pages with biased and unproductive slogans. That was you, obviously. If you're arguing that one or two of those edits were useful, I really don't care. Quite frankly, I don't trust you to be honestly working to improve the article. Trustworthy people don't post-and-run biased slogans. -- Ec5618 (talk) 16:58, 6 December 2009 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Association of American Feed Control Officials[edit]

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.
