Ironic synchronicity


Earlier this week in IRC I joked about running for WMF board next year, shaving my head, and referring to everyone else as my "long-haired opponents". Prompted me to re-read Hunter S. Thompson's WP bio, so your article with the "purloined" title is apt. --Brian McNeil / talk 16:43, 31 May 2008 (UTC)Reply

Yes, I find Hunter S. Thompson to be extremely intriguing, and its a shame he is no longer with us. Also, I have discovered that on all these wikis strange occurrences are commonplace.--William Saturn (talk) 16:58, 31 May 2008 (UTC)Reply

Obama withdraws from Trinity United Church


Excellent article, and a very interesting read - I hadn't seen that yet. :) Thunderhead 19:22, 1 June 2008 (UTC)Reply

Thanks.--William Saturn (talk) 19:49, 1 June 2008 (UTC)Reply

Do not edit quotes


The section you edited on the prohibition party candidate was a direct quote. Never, ever edit those parts! --Brian McNeil / talk 17:15, 12 June 2008 (UTC)Reply

Apologies! The edit description made me think you were making a grammatical correction to a direct quote. --Brian McNeil / talk 20:10, 12 June 2008 (UTC)Reply

Not rude at all.


I see your point. Don't worry, that's not being rude. —Calebrw (talk) 16:47, 8 August 2008 (UTC)Reply

Done. You need to be an editor to do so. There is a list of people with the editor privilege, but I can't seem to find it. —Calebrw (talk) 17:57, 8 August 2008 (UTC)Reply

The article you just made dealing with the potential vp candidate i redirected to the above article, since the annoucement will occur tomorrow morning. Hope you don't mind. The Mind's Eye (talk) 03:24, 23 August 2008 (UTC)Reply

I understand, but u have to understand the announcement is probably less than 12 hours a day. The Mind's Eye (talk) 03:26, 23 August 2008 (UTC)Reply
I entirely agree with u on it being newsworthy, but notice the following [1] which specifically refers to Chet Edward as a possibility would make your article some 20 days stale. The Mind's Eye (talk) 03:31, 23 August 2008 (UTC)Reply
Well perahps you could change the title to mention something about that, and mention he confirming the possibility in the article. The Mind's Eye (talk) 03:40, 23 August 2008 (UTC)Reply
I added a paragraph on Edwards not getting a phone call from obama. The Mind's Eye (talk) 03:54, 23 August 2008 (UTC)Reply
I made one final edit by moving one sentence to the bottom for chronological purposes. I can't review though because i am a "invovled" editor. Cheers, The Mind's Eye (talk) 04:00, 23 August 2008 (UTC)Reply
It make more since, by telling what the story is about and then adding background at the bottom of the article. The Mind's Eye (talk) 14:11, 23 August 2008 (UTC)Reply
