If you disagree with one of my edits, by all means, please raise the issue on the Talk Page for that article. Please do not come to my personal Talk Page to wag your finger at me, which I find rude and not constructive.


Re: R. v. CooteEdit

You're quite welcome :) For future reference, a stub tag is for articles that contain very little content (no more than a paragraph) and genuinely give no real information. See Wikipedia:Stub. Yours had plenty of content and was well referenced, so it definitely didn't need the tag. Good job anyway :) QueenCake (talk) 16:19, 9 November 2011 (UTC)

Naming conventionsEdit

Thank you for your note, Mr Serjeant Buzfuz. The general rules are at Wikipedia:Article titles and Wikipedia:Naming conventions. See in particular Wikipedia:Naming conventions (people)#Titles and styles and Wikipedia:Naming conventions (royalty and nobility)#British nobility, which is not a very good title for titles of knighthood, but they are covered there. In practice, we don't include "Sir" in the article title for a knight unless for some reason it's useful. Moonraker (talk) 19:36, 16 November 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for the explanation and the links. Mr Serjeant Buzfuz (talk) 03:29, 30 November 2011 (UTC)

Psychic powers!Edit

Now that you've added a signature to your post on my talk page, it looks like I responded to you several hours before you posted! He he heh... Andrew Gwilliam (talk) 21:35, 29 November 2011 (UTC).

I wish it would add the sig automatically - I always forget the damn thing! Mr Serjeant Buzfuz (talk) 03:26, 30 November 2011 (UTC)

Thanks very much! I think it should answer the notability issue. Mr Serjeant Buzfuz (talk) 03:26, 30 November 2011 (UTC)

Noted Canadian jurist and singer Graeme Mitchell, Q.C.Edit

Are you quite certain that Mr Mitchell welcomes such mention? I have known him for some 40 years, am from the same part of the province and share both his professional activities, albeit in recent years in a clean different country much less province. But I hesitated to make mention of him in this context without his express go-ahead. Masalai (talk) 10:53, 4 December 2011 (UTC)

I do not believe it is an issue. Mr Serjeant Buzfuz (talk) 06:12, 10 December 2011 (UTC)

Hazen HansardEdit

Thanks for the note. I'm always happy to review well written, properly referenced articles. I would like to know more about his career in the army during WW2, but that's my personal obsession! Best wishes. Bikeroo (talk) 17:30, 26 September 2014 (UTC)

Legal status of animals in Canada wikiEdit

Did you intentionally remove the Penalties for Breaches section content on Nov 3, 2015? Was there something wrong with the content? Ninel (talk) 20:32, 4 April 2016 (UTC)

Can't remember; that was four months ago! :) I will check and come back.Mr Serjeant Buzfuz (talk) 00:36, 5 April 2016 (UTC)
Fixed it; moved the penalties section up to the summary of the current state of the law last November and forgot to delete the heading. Thank you for the polite inquiry - best traditions of wikipedia! Mr Serjeant Buzfuz (talk) 02:55, 5 April 2016 (UTC)

Henry VIIIEdit

I perfectly agree with you! I tried to resolve this absurdity, as you can see in my recent contribution, but it has been canceled. I wanted, succeedingly, to point out the "non sequitur". To no avail. NONIS STEFANO (talk) 07:47, 23 May 2016 (UTC)

Well done!Edit

You did an excellent job expanding Doug Steele. Thank you! Cullen328 Let's discuss it 17:51, 29 May 2016 (UTC)

Yves Fortier (lawyer)Edit

My Canadian Oxford dictionary (second edition) gives "commitment" with one "t". "Committed" is indeed spelt with two in Canadian English. Regards. Orenburg1 (talk) 07:05, 3 August 2016 (UTC)

Nomination of List of counsel appearing in Canadian appeals to the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council for deletionEdit


A discussion is taking place as to whether the article List of counsel appearing in Canadian appeals to the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of counsel appearing in Canadian appeals to the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article.

I thought I would notify you, given you were responsible for the creation and much of the content of the article. Harris (talk) 13:16, 27 February 2017 (UTC)

Old copy in usersubpageEdit

The issue is that you have a WP:UP#COPIES that's now two years old. It's coming up in a maintenance category as needing review. Do as you wish, but that's the issue. Legacypac (talk) 03:00, 7 June 2017 (UTC)delted

A page you started (Electoral history of Alexander Mackenzie) has been reviewed!Edit

Wikipedia editor Insertcleverphrasehere just reviewed your page, and wrote this note for you:

Great new articles! but please add wikiprojects to the new pages you create on the talk page (see this talk page for an example. You can more easily apply and search for wikiprojects using the rater tool.

Thanks, both. I'll be adding talk pages soon. Mr Serjeant Buzfuz (talk) 20:41, 2 January 2018 (UTC)
@Insertcleverphrasehere: Tried to use that "rater" function, but it's beyond my tech capabilities; read the "how to" page and my eyes glazed over. Have added Talk pages to each of the new Electoral history pages the old-fashioned way: Cutting and pasting from the ones you created :) Thanks! Mr Serjeant Buzfuz (talk) 20:47, 3 January 2018 (UTC)
Fair enough, that works too. Its actually much simpler to install scripts than it looks though. Just create a page at User:Mr Serjeant Buzfuz/common.js, then copy "importScript('User:Evad37/rater.js'); // User:Evad37/rater" (without quotes) into the first line. (then you'll find a new link in the top bar near 'view history', under 'more'. — Insertcleverphrasehere (or here) 20:57, 3 January 2018 (UTC)

Your thread has been archivedEdit


Hi Mr Serjeant Buzfuz! You created a thread called Can I take photos of paintings and upload them? What are the guidelines? at Wikipedia:Teahouse, but it has been archived because there was no discussion for a few days. You can still find the archived discussion here. If you have any additional questions that weren't answered then, please create a new thread.

Recent Canadian Provincial ElectionsEdit

There's no point in reverting updates based on recent provincial elections. Quebec's new premier will be sworn in in a matter of days, just leave the updates. This way, it's done ahead of time. 2607:F2C0:9494:B000:D180:A453:E65B:13C4 (talk) 00:21, 4 October 2018 (UTC)

As mentioned in the box at the top of this page, I find it much more productive to discuss edits to a page on the Talk page of that article. That way, anyone who is interested in that page can see the discussion. I have responded to you on the Talk page for the template on current provincial governments, and will not discuss the issue here. Mr Serjeant Buzfuz (talk) 18:59, 5 October 2018 (UTC)
