Help at MotD, please?

Hi, Atro. You've introduced many mottoes at MotD, but you haven't voted on many others. I would really appreciate if you would help me (and Tewy, and Magnus, etc.) to close some nominations. The page is currently very long, and any help would be appreciated. I'm not saying this to be mean or anything, but very few users help out with the "boring stuff", so I thought recruting some helpers would be benificial. Thanks for all of the work you have done so far too! *Cremepuff222* 17:51, 5 May 2007 (UTC)

No, no, no, no! Two supports helps a ton! Sorry if I was a tad angry-sounding earlier; I was just a bit frustrated. Please keep it up, and thanks! *Cremepuff222* 20:53, 5 May 2007 (UTC)

Template:Motd nomclosing

Their both just as correct. I've never seen it spelt with mottoes so i just assumed it was a typo. I don't mind. Should i post this on the template talk page? Simply south 17:07, 6 May 2007 (UTC)

It may not be coincidence as i use British English. Simply south 17:13, 6 May 2007 (UTC)

Regarding your comments on User Talk:WikiMan53

Just so you don't get the wrong idea about the blocking administrators here, WikiMan53 (talk · contribs) was warned for his behavior [1] [2] [3] [4] and in many other places as well. Believe me, it was his time. Regards, ➪HiDrNick! 23:22, 6 May 2007 (UTC)


Please tone down your signature. It is way too excessive and takes up about 6 lines of my editing window (and I'm on a pretty wide screen). Please read WP:SIG and try to make it a lot smaller. Metros232 23:55, 6 May 2007 (UTC)

I'm really sorry if I caused a mess! Aillema 22:01, 8 May 2007 (UTC)

Motto of the day

Woah, that's a lot of mottoes you just nominated! ;) You're making it tough for the people who close the mottoes though..., and your help in this area would be much appreciated. *Cremepuff222* 00:37, 22 May 2007 (UTC)

I agree... Well done! Tom@sBat 01:10, 22 May 2007 (UTC)

I could show you how I do it if that would help. *Cremepuff222* 22:10, 22 May 2007 (UTC)
(Shhh, nobody knows that I'm not at track...) XD You always make me laugh... Now, back to business. First, I open the Wikipedia:Motto of the day/Nominations/In review page, then cut and paste the mottoes older than 14 days into Wikipedia:Motto of the day/Nominations#Awaiting decision. At that point, I open up three tabs: one for the archive, one for approved mottoes, and one for reopened mottoes. (So at this point, I'll have four tabs: one for the mottoes I'm closing, one for archiving, one for approved mottoes, and one for reopened mottoes). Next, I edit each motto in the awaiting decision by section. After that, I move the motto to the appropriate page (in review for reopened mottoes, approved for approved mottoes, and archive for approved/rejected mottoes). Well, that's pretty much it I suppose. If you have any more questions, or if I wasn't very clear, please tell me. *Cremepuff222* 22:31, 22 May 2007 (UTC)

I have to say…

I'm really impressed, AstroHurricane. How did you think up of so many mottos in so little time? It takes me weeks sometimes to come up with just one :)! If there were a MOTD barnstar, you'd surely have earned it many times! Well, have fun editing :). —May the Edit be with you, always. (T-borg) (drop me a line) 23:27, 26 May 2007 (UTC)

It wasn't too much at all! Thanks for taking the time to explain. —May the Edit be with you, always. (T-borg) (drop me a line) 19:23, 27 May 2007 (UTC)

Number of nominations

Hello, and thank you for your contributions to WP:MOTD. It really is great to have a healthy number of nominations to work with. However, a discussion was recently opened regarding the number of mottos you sometimes nominate in one sitting. I would like to politely ask you to reduce the number of your nominations, or to spread them over several days, to both allow time for users to vote on your nominations and to ease the job of the closer. Thank you. --Tewy 02:43, 27 May 2007 (UTC)

Oil shale

Hi. You are listed as a participant in WikiProject Geology. Maybe you to please consider helping to improve the oil shale article. This article has developed quite well, but some more expert assistance is needed. Thank you in advance. Beagel 17:29, 31 May 2007 (UTC)
