I've changed the entry at Wikipedia:Simple News/03-08-09/NiB, correcting the date of Palin's resignation and adding a link to the (newly created) article for Alaska's new governor Sean Parnell. Hope you don't mind. --Philosopher Let us reason together. 12:12, 4 August 2009 (UTC)
No, I don't. Thanks. Pmlineditor  Talk 12:13, 4 August 2009 (UTC)


I do not have an experience of GA's I may try next time not this time,Good luck--Deoxyribonucleic (talk) 17:51, 6 August 2009 (UTC)


Hey, just wanted to say great job on the Earth article. You put a lot of time and effort into that article, and I must say it is probably one of the best articles I have seen on this Wiki. Once again. great work!--Gordonrox24 | Talk 00:16, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

No sports in India eh?

--Deoxyribonucleic (talk) 15:46, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

No; I reverted that edit since it was a blatant copypaste from enWP. Pmlineditor  Talk 15:48, 7 August 2009 (UTC)


I am gonna retire...I have had enough of simple wikipedia... — Preceding unsigned comment added by DNA (talkcontribs)

Well, I'm sorry to hear that. But you shouldn't have created those copyvios. Pmlineditor  Talk 17:11, 7 August 2009 (UTC)
No probs...--Deoxyribonucleic (talk) 17:13, 7 August 2009 (UTC)


Hi Pmlinediter!

Congats to your first good article Earth. Well done. I hope we see more such articles from you. Best Barras || talk 18:27, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, it was a very good article. Well done. The Rambling Man (talk) 18:36, 8 August 2009 (UTC)
It was? It is ;) --Barras || talk


Hello, I added a paragraph on how states and union territories are different in India; I also added an explanation about the India-China border dispute. Would be glad if you could have a look, and perhaps reword it so it is easier to understand. --Eptalon (talk) 13:24, 9 August 2009 (UTC)

Ok thanks. I'll do that. Pmlineditor  Talk 13:26, 9 August 2009 (UTC)


Hey! I noticed you helped get Earth to Good Article status :D I did a lot of work on that before I became less active and I'm glad someone else took the time to better what is a pretty fundamental article. Congratulations on a job well done! FSM Noodly? 16:08, 9 August 2009 (UTC)

Hey thanks. I wish you can help me in taking Jupiter to VGA as well. I made an unsuccessful VGA nom of Jupiter. Pmlineditor  Talk 16:12, 9 August 2009 (UTC)

Peer review for Tropical Depression One (2009)

Hello. Someone thinks that this article may not be in simple english to understand. I have addressed to that person's concerns, however he still thinks it is unsimple enough. Can you review the article and list any problems you find on the article's talk page? Thank you. —§ Snake311 (I'm Not Okay!) 07:38, 14 August 2009 (UTC)

Yes, I will. Cheers, Pmlineditor  Talk 08:12, 14 August 2009 (UTC).
Thank you for your feedback. So far I have responded to several of the issues you have listed. However I feel that I need to tell you that the article seems to be becoming worse with every peer review. Simplifying the article furthur seems to make it more incomprehensible to me. I don't know about anyone else, but the article is very simple, maybe too simple for me. Some subjects such as tropical cyclones may require complex vocabluary or "big words". Right now I'm really beat and want to take a short rest. Thank you for taking the time to reiew the article. —§ Snake311 (I'm Not Okay!) 19:42, 14 August 2009 (UTC)

Adolf Hitler

? The article is still semi-protected. Off topic: You need to update your status. Griffinofwales (talk) 15:29, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

Yes, but I removed it since it was looking ugly. I'm looking to fix that. And for my status, yeah, I tend not to forget to change it. Pmlineditor  Talk 15:30, 18 August 2009 (UTC)
When I added the templates about a week ago they were fine, and nobody has changed them since then, so I'm not sure what's wrong. Griffinofwales (talk) 15:43, 18 August 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, I know. I tried to tweak them, but it failed. Anyway, we don't want an ugly template at the top of pages, do we? I think they're better gone. I'll try to fix them though. Pmlineditor  Talk 15:47, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

Comment adjusted

I adjusted your comment at Wikipedia:Requests for deletion/Requests/2009/Template:Delete so it links to, rather than trancluding, the template. Hope you don't mind. --Philosopher Let us reason together. 16:18, 26 August 2009 (UTC)

Hehe, thanks. I forgot {{t1}}. Pmlineditor  Talk 16:19, 26 August 2009 (UTC)


Well done on addressing most of the issues I've raised. I'll try to complete my review in the next day or so. Once again, sorry for being late to provide my comments, I've been on holiday! The Rambling Man (talk) 17:39, 28 August 2009 (UTC)

Ok, no problem. You'll see that I've addressed the issues at Lincoln and am working on the 2009 stock article. :) Pmlineditor  Talk 17:40, 28 August 2009 (UTC)
Keep up the good work! The Rambling Man (talk) 17:42, 28 August 2009 (UTC)

Template:Infobox Political post

This is broken. It won't show all the fields, even in the example on the page, or in mainspace pages such as Vice President of the United States. Could you fix this, please Purplebackpack89 (talk) 18:47, 28 August 2009 (UTC)

Lincoln GA

Lincoln's GA has gone down, but the comments in the discussion have not particularly helped me inprove the article. Please itemize your suggestions for improvement, e.g. "tell me more about this", or "add a section on that", or "expand this", instead of just "Oppose: expand". This will help me and others improve the article. Thank you, Purplebackpack89 (talk) 18:16, 29 August 2009 (UTC)

Comments posted at talk page. Please have a look. Pmlineditor  Talk 08:44, 30 August 2009 (UTC)
Thank you...that'll help me add probably 5KB Purplebackpack89 (talk)
