Activity[edit]

My activity will be slowly decreasing due to SWMT, School and many other real life issues. --~~Goldenburg111 17:19, 15 February 2014 (UTC)

Delete[edit]

Did you really want your userpage deleted? Am I correct to assume this was just a test? PiRSquared17 (talk) 02:49, 22 February 2014 (UTC)

Its a test :) --~~Goldenburg111 16:09, 22 February 2014 (UTC)

tagging user pages[edit]

I think changing, or editing, the user pages of blocked users is a barbaric practice, and don't think you should take joy in defacing them with templates, even if the users deserve it – public shaming serves no good purpose. ~ DanielTom (talk) 21:25, 6 March 2014 (UTC)

thanks, I will keep that in mind... --~~Goldenburg111 21:28, 6 March 2014 (UTC)
Thank you – remember Confucius' saying, "What you do not want done to yourself, do not do to others." :-) DanielTom (talk) 21:32, 6 March 2014 (UTC)
Thanks... --~~Goldenburg111 21:37, 6 March 2014 (UTC)

hey kid.[edit]

What gives YOU the right to incorrectly tag user pages, hmm?! Im actualy glad to see that UDScott rollbacked such edits. YOU deserve much worse. In the words of the main character in Shallow Hal, "Rosemary, I'm cummin'!"

you idiot, your going to be blocked sooner or later. --~~Goldenburg111 17:48, 8 March 2014 (UTC)
oh, so "I" am an idiot now?! We shall see who gets the last laugh! Least somebody here doesnt touch themselves at night, unlike YOU. idiot, time-wasting idiot
XD I take you as a joke. --~~Goldenburg111 18:08, 8 March 2014 (UTC)

Actresses[edit]

I understand why you wish to split the actors category, but since you also created Category:American actresses, shouldn't you use that where appropriate instead of the general Category:Actresses? ~ UDScott (talk) 20:44, 18 March 2014 (UTC)

User:UDScott, please delete Category:American actresses. By author requests in good faith. Cheers! --~~Goldenburg111 20:59, 18 March 2014 (UTC)

a few things[edit]

Hi Golden. A few things: 1) when using a template, it's generally a good idea to use "subst:", as in {{subst:welcome}}; 2) people may want to have blank userpages, just to avoid red links; 3) bashing admins (even if just in edit summaries), won't endear them to you – they are volunteers, too, and can't be on 24/7. Relax.

Another thing. As UDScott explained to you, just because someone is quoted in the news, or in an interview, that doesn't mean that "quote" is notable. This is very important for you to understand. I myself have told you before that, as a rule, if the quote doesn't appear on Google Books, then it isn't notable.

If you want, you can look at dictionary of quotations, or at websites like GoodReads (yuck), to see what proper "quotes" look like.[1] A good quote is usually short, memorable, witty, etc. I can tell you how to find these, so you can add more to WQ, I just don't want you to misunderstand when an admin requests that a page you created be deleted. Please read Wikiquote:Wikiquote. Feel free to ask me, or more experienced users, if you have any Q. Thanks ~ DanielTom (talk) 20:33, 23 March 2014 (UTC)

thanks DanielTom. Your comments smoothen me everyday. --~~Goldenburg111 23:27, 23 March 2014 (UTC)
(Thanks too, you always take these comments very well! Cheers.) ~ DanielTom (talk) 22:50, 24 March 2014 (UTC)

re Uncategorized categories[edit]

I've gone through and done some Wikiquote site cleanup, helping to categorize uncategorized categories, previously listed at Special:UncategorizedCategories.

Cheers,

-- Cirt (talk) 20:11, 25 March 2014 (UTC)

Yes check.svgY Done, for now at least. As of now there are currently zero uncategorized categories. Cheers, -- Cirt (talk) 22:09, 26 March 2014 (UTC)
Thanks Cirt, much appreciated. --~~Goldenburg111 21:17, 29 March 2014 (UTC)
You're most welcome, Goldenburg111, thanks for the acknowledgement ! -- Cirt (talk) 23:02, 29 March 2014 (UTC)

Robert Ley[edit]

Why shouldn't there be a ' at the end of the quote below?

  • The Weimar system appeared to me like a father who locks his little boys in a room and stirs them up against one another and says: 'Beat each other up as much as you want.

It ends the sentence that the metaphorical father is saying (Beat each other up as much as you want).—This unsigned comment is by Ollieinc (talkcontribs) .

Your edit was correct, and I reverted back to your version. (Golden is used to reverting vandalism, but this time he slipped, it happens sometimes.) Cheers ~ DanielTom (talk) 08:39, 3 April 2014 (UTC)

Pratibha Patil[edit]

Your new pages are getting better. I liked the tree quote. Cheers ~ DanielTom (talk) 20:14, 4 April 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for acknowledging that. --Goldenburg111 20:15, 4 April 2014 (UTC)
User:Aikolugbara: go ahead, change it as you will, I also have Pranab Mukherjee for you to change. --Goldenburg111 17:15, 5 April 2014 (UTC)

Sudhir Ruparelia[edit]

Hi Goldenburg, seen your reversion but I stil don't understand why the undoing! I don't want to sound rude but I'm thinking of a few new changes again, thanks!Aikolugbara (talk) 15:21, 5 April 2014 (UTC)

User:Aikolugbara: ah, facebook is a spam website, which is not allowed. Facebook spam is not allowed. Facebook is also not a reliable source for any quote, you can try to get the quote from another source. But facebook is not acceptable. Cheers. --~ Goldenburg111 20:29, 5 April 2014 (UTC)

Thanks a lot, I get it now, facebook is what I got wrong as a reference! Aikolugbara (talk) 20:37, 5 April 2014 (UTC)
