MOS:FLAGICONEdit

Hi. Regarding this edit, I actually removed flag icons from hundreds of India settlement articles, until someone pointed out to me the sentence Human geographic articles – for example settlements and administrative subdivisions – may have flags of the country and first-level administrative subdivision in infoboxes in this same policy. I had to revert myself a few hundred times. What do you think? --Muhandes (talk) 08:56, 21 December 2017 (UTC)

When is a conviction recorded - on verdict or on sentencing?Edit

Thanks for your edits to the Murder of Michael McGurk, in particular this edit that removed the comments that a conviction against Ron Medich is currently pending. A jury has found Medich guilty of ordering the murder of McGurk and guilty of intimidating McGurk's wife. However, at the time of writing, no conviction has been recorded for either charge. Conviction (or the Judge's decision to not record a conviction (unlikely)) is not made by the outcome of a jury verdict. The judge receives submissions from the prosecution and defence and then makes a decision. While it is highly likely that a conviction will be recorded against Medich and he will be sentenced accordingly, it is inappropriate to record a conviction at this point in time.

Point taken. Sorry for the slow response. My WP editing has been woefully low recently as I haven't had internet at home for over a year, plus other factors.  
I hope to return to more WP activity in the future. 220 of Borg 01:04, 12 June 2018 (UTC)

Stale userspace draftEdit

Hi, I'm CoolSkittle. I noticed you created a userspace draft some time ago at User:220 of Borg/Engelandvaarder, which seems to be abandoned. Do you plan to develop this? CoolSkittle (talk) 19:50, 16 February 2019 (UTC)

Hello @CoolSkittle: Apologies for slow response, my WP editing has been distressingly infrequent the last year or so.  
That page is IIRC a Google translation of a page from the Dutch Wikipedia. I don't think I am interested in working on it further. If you think it's worthy of 'publishing' and wish to bring it up to scratch first feel free to do so, or
If you think it should be deleted it's OK with me.
 - I have just seen that there is already the shorter Engelandvaarder page on En-WP! I can't remember but that is probably why I didn't continue working on 'my' draft.
Regards, 220 of Borg 04:57, 22 February 2019 (UTC)
I have redirected your draft to Engelandvaarder per WP:WikiProject Abandoned Drafts#Stale userspace drafts. CoolSkittle (talk) 20:37, 22 February 2019 (UTC)
