For being civil in times of strife and for tirelessly discussing with the opposition when others get tired of talking.

A barnstar for you!Edit

Hi Pincrete. Just a note to let you know the Sexuality of Adolf Hitler article has now been nominated for GA. Thanks again for your help in the clean-up. Diannaa (talk) 16:17, 8 February 2015 (UTC)
Yes, it has now passed GA review, thanks for helping to get it there. Cheers, Kierzek (talk) 16:03, 9 February 2015 (UTC)


Hi Pincrete

Thanks for the message about reverting my reversion on Godot. It's so civilised to get a message of explanation!

To be honest I reverted the edit because I felt that the editor who removed the Laurel and Hardy reference didn't 'get the joke' - but you're right, its relevance to Godot is pretty tenuous. Fair enough. Keep up the good work etc. Gravender (talk) 17:36, 12 May 2015 (UTC)


If you find time for it you can take a look at the article Gustav Laabs that I just created. Any help is appreciated.--BabbaQ (talk) 20:05, 16 September 2015 (UTC)


Hello Pincrete, belated greetings and apologies for having not turning up to see off the idiotic sock-puppet accusation by Malagurski's groupie. I presume he was up to something like he and the gang of pals always are (Assume good faith unless tedious experience has taught you better, as they say). I hope his little enterprise got seen off in the manner it deserved.

I'm afraid domestic circumstances became too pressing for me to be able to carry on wasting time on the futilities of coping with people like that and there's no prospect of me being able to return to the fray for a long while. I'm very grateful that you still have the energy and determination not to give up on the endless struggle between good and nonsense. Very best wishes, and thanks for all your efforts.

Punctuation for quotesEdit

Regarding your edits of Charlie Gard case, I suggest to review MOS:LQ. Wikipedia's style is to include the full stop within the quotation marks in cases where a full sentence is quoted. Please see MOS:LQ. (I also suggest awareness of MOS:QUOTEMARKS and MOS:APOSTROPHE, in case you're not familiar with those.) —BarrelProof (talk) 21:50, 30 November 2017 (UTC)

BarrelProof my understanding of "Include terminal punctuation within the quotation marks only if it was present in the original material, and otherwise place it after the closing quotation mark. For the most part, this means treating periods and commas in the same way as question marks: Keep them inside the quotation marks if they apply only to the quoted material and outside if they apply to the whole sentence." Would mean that my edit was correct. These quotes were partial sentences. Were there some where whole sentences were quoted? If so I apologise. Pincrete (talk) 22:06, 30 November 2017 (UTC)
Yes, there were some. One is "... or its staff from prosecution.", another is "... which is contrary to Charlie's best interests.", another is "... better for the child than making no order at all.", another is "... share a common view that further treatment would be futile.", another is "... could not undo structural brain damage.", another is "... but the alternative is that he will pass away.", and another is "... and is therefore plainly in error." Part of the wording from MOS:LQ that you quoted is a bit confusing – I find this example helpful to clarify it: Marlin said: "I need to find Nemo." In that example, the full stop applies to the whole sentence as well as the quote within it, but it is included within the quotation marks because it is a quote of the complete sentence. The explanation found at Logical quotation also seems helpful. —BarrelProof (talk) 22:12, 30 November 2017 (UTC)
