You are now a Reviewer[edit]

Wikipedia Reviewer.svg

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, is currently undergoing a two-month trial scheduled to end 15 August 2010.

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under pending changes. Pending changes is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial. The list of articles with pending changes awaiting review is located at Special:OldReviewedPages.

For the guideline on reviewing, see Wikipedia:Reviewing. Being granted reviewer rights doesn't change how you can edit articles even with pending changes. The general help page on pending changes can be found here, and the general policy for the trial can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. —DoRD (talk) 20:05, 8 July 2010 (UTC)

Prehistoric warfare[edit]

Thanks for the improvements! Basically all my archaeological reading is restricted to heritage-designated sites here in the USA (especially in the Midwest region), and I don't have a theoretical background at all; I wouldn't have had a clue where to look for general resources on a broad topic such as prehistoric warfare. That's why I just gave counterexamples of individual sites; they're the only way that I knew to disprove the broad statements that were being given. Nyttend (talk) 02:04, 22 December 2014 (UTC)

Eine Tasse Tee für dich![edit]

Meissen-teacup pinkrose01.jpg Thanks for reminding me of the Darwin Awards on Commons! Much obliged!! Hedwig in Washington (TALK) 00:55, 26 September 2015 (UTC)

Thanks![edit]

Thank you for the extensive reference material you added to the Kenneth Craik article. I never thought there would be that much available on him so it was a very welcome surprise to see it there. Your edits are a great example of what makes Wikipedia work so well, so thanks again! Spalding (talk) 13:56, 20 February 2016 (UTC)

Zotero[edit]

I've received a wiki newsletter about Zotero that I thought you should read. https://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wikitech-l/2016-February/084840.html --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 23:28, 24 February 2016 (UTC)

WikiProject New Orleans[edit]

Hello Paul, we met at GLAM Boot Camp a few weeks ago. I believe you brought up WikiProject New Orleans and your interest in revitalizing it. Would you still be interested in taking on that project? If so, let me know if there is anything in particular you would be interested in. WikiProject X can offer, in addition to the new WikiProject interface, tools to help with assessing articles and recommending articles in need of improvement. Let me know what you would be interested in, and I can prepare a draft and we can recommend it to the current participants at WikiProject New Orleans for adoption. Harej (talk) 21:53, 30 June 2016 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

I used to contribute a lot more to the RefDesks. Some of the behaviour of some of the regulars put me off. Now I've come back to it, a little. One thing hasn't changed: how rarely the querents return to say thank you, that was exactly what I needed to know. So your kind words re the Quran translations gave me heart. These little courtesies go a long way. Carbon Caryatid (talk) 11:11, 7 July 2016 (UTC)

How did you find an artist in 'British canvas, stretcher and panel suppliers' marks'?[edit]

You swiftly found the painter John James Wilson in this resource for me on May 2. It was much appreciated. Could you tell me the method used as I would like to use it to locate other painters? BFP1BFP1 (talk) 07:50, 31 May 2018 (UTC)
