Blood on the Dancefloor articleEdit

An interesting read, I hope you are well. — R2 20:21, 26 March 2012 (UTC)

Personal attacksEdit

The editor is beyond help, and keep your opinion and your personal attacks to yourself.--Bbb23 (talk) 23:42, 12 April 2012 (UTC)

I don't know how you can come to the conclusion that the editor is beyond help when you haven't bothered your backside to try. Pyrrhus16 23:48, 12 April 2012 (UTC)
You really should review her history - my conclusion is quite well supported. And in the interest of full disclosure, I have reported her to WP:ANI and referred to my diff and your diff as part of my post. I don't mention you by name in the body of the post, but the diff, of course, shows your name.--Bbb23 (talk) 00:05, 13 April 2012 (UTC)

FACEdit

Hi Pyrrhus, great work on E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (album). I'm not sure if you've seen yet, but I put down some comments and questions at FAC yesterday. I've also got an article up for review, in fact directly above yours in the listings: FAC/Cracker Barrel Old Country Store. It's somewhat unusual as a FAC, because the topic is somewhat contentious (the company history includes discrimination claims), and because a significant contributor was hired to research and rewrite it (that would be me). My contract with them has since expired, but I've been helping this process at the margins with Silver seren and other volunteers who are now making the direct edits. I think we're getting pretty close, but If you get a chance to give it a look, we'd certainly appreciate it. Cheers, WWB Too (talk) 17:37, 6 May 2012 (UTC)

Thanks. I'll go and address the comments you left at the E.T. FAC, and then read and review the Cracker Barrel article. :) Pyrrhus16 19:18, 6 May 2012 (UTC)
Hello, Pyrrhus16. You have new messages at Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/Cracker Barrel Old Country Store/archive1.

Here We Go Again (Ray Charles song)Edit

Since you have an album at FAC, you are surely familiar with the types of issues that might be relevant to the "Here We Go Again (Ray Charles song)" FAC nomination. Can I request that you make some comments.--TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 21:38, 6 May 2012 (UTC)

Sure. I'm away to bed just now but will take a look tomorrow morning. Thanks. Pyrrhus16 22:27, 6 May 2012 (UTC)
I think I have addressed all your concerns. Can you strike your concerns as you feel appropriate (and of course consider supporting).--TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 21:16, 8 May 2012 (UTC)

Omer BhattiEdit

Do you think this is a canard? There are several rumours about Michael Jackson's presumed fourth son. Though nothing has been proven so far, it is worth mentioning as such, especially since Michael Jackson's own father confirms it. The Wiki ghost (talk) 07:59, 28 May 2012 (UTC)

E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (album)Edit

Hi, I see you successfully nominated this for FA (congratulations!) and obviously did a lot of work on the article. Would it be possible for you to address the two questions I raised on the article's Talk page and edit as appropriate? Regards, DocKino (talk) 20:35, 22 June 2012 (UTC)

WP:FOUR RFCEdit

There are two WP:RFCs at WP:FOUR. The first is to conflate issues so as to keep people from expressing meaningful opinions. The second, by me, is claimed to be less than neutral by proponents of the first. Please look at the second one, which I think is much better.--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 07:19, 20 August 2013 (UTC)
