I am currently taking a wikibreak to catch up on my reading and spend more time at the beach this summer. I'll probably be back in a few months, with a occasional edit every once in a while. Happy editing, and remember to cite your sources!

Hello, Thamusemeantfan, and welcome to the Simple English Wikipedia! I hope you will be happy helping here. You should begin by reading these pages: Wikipedia:Useful, Help:Contents, Wikipedia:Policies and guidelines, and how to write Simple English articles. If you want some ideas of which pages to work on, read Wikipedia:Requested articles or the list of wanted pages, or help out with this weeks selected article, which is no longer used.
Even though it is a good idea to research an article (like looking at the discussion page) before making large changes, please be bold and try! Any changes you make that are not perfect can be fixed later. We are also working most on core articles and the most common topics until this Wikipedia grows.
If you want to ask a question or talk with other members, you can visit our version of the "village pump" at Wikipedia:Simple talk. Administrators on Wikipedia can also help you with more difficult problems. You can also ask me for help. The best way to do that is to leave a message on my talk page. You should always sign your messages on Talk pages by typing "~~~~" (four tildes) at the end of your words.
If you would like to test Wikipedia, please use the sandbox. Please do not test Wikipedia by editing its articles.
Good luck and happy editing! — Lights (talk) 02:47, 19 November 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Barnstar change

  Congratulations: You have been given a Barnstar!

I would like to give you this barnstar for heavily contributing to create more VGAs. Thank you:) --§ Snake311 (T + C) 00:06, 2 December 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Goat Rock Beach change

I reverted your links to ENWP in Goat Rock Beach, because they are not Simple English. Any redlinks in an article are best filled by writing a SE article, not linking to another language. -- Barliner  talk  00:32, 9 December 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello/Barnstar change

  Congratulations: You have been given a Barnstar!

For your hard work here on Simple English Wikipedia!

I've seen you on here often, and I've been wondering: How often are you on here? Razorflame (contributions) Talk 21:34, 23 December 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Help change

We need an admin here fast! We've got a very bad vandal on the loose! Razorflame (contributions) Talk 04:23, 29 December 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Welcoming Users change

Generally, it is a good idea to wait for the user in question to make a few contributions before welcoming them. Razorflame 21:07, 30 December 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I deleted the welcome you left. Quite a few users never make contributions, and the message you left does say "thanks for your changes" --Bärliner 21:20, 30 December 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks change

Thanks for the barnstars! :) Razorflame 22:33, 30 December 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Modest Mouse change

Good work on the Mdoest Mouse article. You improved it loads. Oh, and also Matador.Simple tank 22:38, 30 December 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

cats change

I have commented out the categories on User:Thamusemeantfan/Nickel Creek. Users pages should not be in categories. I have also taken the page out of the root category. --Bärliner 23:36, 4 January 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Redirects change

You cannot use the standard redirect function for categories. This only redirects someone who is searching for the category. Instead use {{catredirect}}. Someone from the categories wikiproject, or anyone else, checks category redirects to make sure article are in the correct category. I have changed already United States Bands.--Bärliner 12:35, 4 February 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Barnstar! change

  The Working Man's Barnstar
For all the hard work you've done here.-- Lights  talk  03:14, 15 February 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

GA promotions change

If you choose to make promotions of good or very good articles, please make sure you do it properly. I noticed that you had promoted Buddhism, which only had 4 named voters. As you should know, this is one less than the required minimum of voters. Please review the Requirements for good articles again and please be more careful in the future if you choose to partake in the actual promotions. Also, articles that are rightly promoted also need to have {{good-large}} placed on their talk pages. Thank you. · Tygrrr... 16:59, 17 February 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

3 months change

Hey there! It looks like you are coming up to the 3 month mark here on the Simple English Wikipedia! I just wanted to congratulate you for being a member of the Simple English Wikipedia for 3 months now, so without further ado:

THANK YOU! :) Razorflame 19:49, 17 February 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Pipe organ change

Hi there! You have obviously seen that I have been trying to improve Pipe organ to bring it up to "very good" category. I've added some more references, which I hope I've done correctly. I don't understand your reference to "Thistlethwaite". There is no title, just a name??? Could you also kindly explain what |2 means after "{{reflist"? I've seen it in some articles but can't find any explanation anywhere about it. If there are any ways you think I could still improve the page please let me know. Thanks.Hikitsurisan (talk) 21:56, 19 February 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

National varieties of English change

Why did you change this spelling? Is the Violin article meant to be written in American English? DoubleBlue (Talk) 07:02, 21 February 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

My vote for GA change

Hi there, Thamusemeantfan. While I appreciate what you've done, I would appreciate it if you would let me change my vote myself instead of having you change it for me. Thanks, Razorflame 15:51, 4 March 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Ok, no problem. --Thamusemeantfan (talk) 00:34, 5 March 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

WikiProject change

Hi, I noticed your contributions to Misia (Japanese singer) and was wondering if you'd like to join my Simple WikiProject Asian Music. Thanks. Alexhl (talk) 09:10, 9 March 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Ah, that's a shame. Well thanks anyway. Alexhl (talk) 16:14, 25 March 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Mt. St Helens change

I notice that you have done a lot of work on this article, and that it has missed being a GA. I would not have supported it, without it having more work on it, despite the fact that it is well researched and well cited. The reason is solely poor expression. To be more precise, there is little wrong with the article, except the way that the sentences are linked, and the ideas do or don't follow through. Frequently they don't follow through.

Forget this change

I just took a look at the article at Wikipedia and realise why this one jumps around a bit. I have improved its continuity here and there. I think the intro in particular is improved. I'd go with a GA.

Welcome back! change

Good to see you back! Cheers, Razorflame 23:55, 14 June 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Wikipedia:WikiProject Rock music change

I'd like to invite you to join the newly-formed Rock music WikiProject. There's alot of Rock-related articles on Wikipedia that could use a little attention, and I hope this project can help organize an effort to improve them. So please, take a look and if you like what you see, help us get this project off the ground and a few Rock music pages into the front ranks of Wikipedia articles. Thanks! --Fell on Black Days (talk) 19:41, 23 September 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

OMG!!! change

OMG!!! Long time no see! Great to finally see you back here! Razorflame 05:36, 20 February 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks change

Service Award change

This editor is a Journeyman Editor and has the right to show this Wikipedia Little Red Book.

Thanks for the work on all the music articles of the last few years. You have earned a book, the Little Red Book, congratulations, Peterdownunder (talk) 11:18, 14 January 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
