My dear friendEdit

I did not think it was necessary to wheel war over AN/I discussion closure; for this case, it was fine; but when are you going to run for RfA? Hundreds of us have been asking you and perhaps, GreenMeansGo. Alex Shih (talk) 20:26, 17 January 2018 (UTC)

@Alex Shih: Look: I really must apologise about the ANI close. I assure you—no excuse that it is—that I didn't realise that You had already closed it, that SoV had re-opened it, and then I turned up in size thirteens :) I saw the thread, went to the RfC, saw you'd closed that, and went back to the ANI thread... and closed it :o I'm afraid you and "hundreds" of others are now in the company of someone who didn't check the page history. A page one error! -and one which I will be rightfully condemned for. Sorry about that. Hope SarekoV didn't think I was stepping on their toes too. wel, clearly i did; but not deliberately. Nice message though: thanks! >SerialNumber54129...speculates 20:34, 17 January 2018 (UTC)
I see what you're doing... a joint RfA so we can fail together an console one another. GMGtalk 21:32, 17 January 2018 (UTC)
Hey, if you are all bound and determined to fall on your sword like that, this'll cut the sword budget considerably.... Anmccaff (talk) 21:41, 17 January 2018 (UTC)
Yes, but then they're stuck together and would have to abide by the two-man rule for any administrative actions. Primefac (talk) 15:44, 18 January 2018 (UTC)

RfAEdit

I know a lot about RfA, prbably more than most because I pioneered the biggest ever investigation into it and I've voted on literally 100s of them. One of the problems of being an admin, is that people jump on us for anything they can and just love taking our comments out of context. You said 'extremely unfair'...

PS: We'll talk about it more when you run for adminship, and based on your history, I might even nominate you. Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 06:24, 19 March 2018 (UTC)

Saw your note on Mediawiki and agree wholeheartedly with your thoughts :) I'm going to Soho first (to take a photo) but it's only 10" walk away and I guess i could be there from 1-ish.

This barnstar is awarded in appreciation of your input to and support for Siege of Berwick (1333) all the way from GAN to FAC. Thank you. Gog the Mild (talk) 14:10, 18 January 2019 (UTC)
That's very kind Gog, thanks very much. How's it going—must be nearly there by now? Hope all is well! ——SerialNumber54129 14:13, 18 January 2019 (UTC)
Things are good thanks. How is RL for you? Yes, it got promoted last night; my second FA and the first I wrote from scratch - well, cough, excepting your doubling of it in size, which is what really made it as a promotable article.
45 minutes after it was promoted I got an A class medal and 4 hours after that my first Four Award. I am new enough to Wikipedia to find this reasonably exciting.
I am about to have a disagreement over the MoS in an ACR - Wikipedia:WikiProject Military history/Assessment/Midland Railway War Memorial - with an editor vastly more experienced than me. If you felt like casting your own experienced eyes over it, if only so you can tell me that I am being an idiot, it would be appreciated. Gog the Mild (talk) 16:52, 18 January 2019 (UTC)
Go carefully with the butter Gog :) yes, I see great things are happening, congratulations! Re. the Memorial—no, I think your original reading was correct. Apologies for tardiness, I would have got there sooner, but I was a little tied up elsewhere :) but it's really great when these things get discussed in a civilised manner and then resolved so peacefully. Hence my barb about dramaboard tricoteuses! Thanks for the BS again, it reminds me to update the—currently in a somewhat Miss Havisham-style state of disrepair—trophy cabinet. ——SerialNumber54129 22:02, 18 January 2019 (UTC)
Moi? Buerre? Je ne comprends pas.
Oh yes. We live in exciting times.
Good. You seemed prompt enough to me. I was a little concerned I may find my head in a basket, but it all worked out in a civilised manner.
You seem very busy with FACs of late. No danger of running out of English dukes I suppose. I did an image review while I was browsing it. If I get time over the weekend I'll do a full review. Interesting article.
Quite right. Get your duster out and get the place organised. One should always dress for dinner.
