Thanks. Favor: Can you please move the page to the right title?

Thanks for the comments on the article. A small favor: I accidentally titled it with a lower-case on the second word, "Black seminoles," instead of "Black Seminoles," and find that being new, I don't have permissions to change the title by doing a move. Is this something you or another admin can do? I put a note on the request a move page and on the Black seminoles talk page. Thanks for any help you can offer. I'd like to make some links to the article, but want to hold off until the title is corrected. Austinbirdman 10:45, 30 August 2005 (UTC)

Hi again

hi. i am replying to your comment dated 29 april 2005 on list of people who changed the world. how do you change the name? --ImpalerBugz 10:27, 30 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Hi Utcursch

Thanks for the kind remarks. Can I become a admin. now? If not, what are the qualifications? P.S Keep the messages coming. I would also need your help in school projects. --ImpalerBugz 11:18, 29 Apr 2005 (UTC)

My adminship: thanks

Hi Utcursch. Thanks very much for your vote for my RfA. I promise to be prudent, wise, sagacious and totally unilateral in all my admin affairs. I should say that I am very pleased at the number of people who supported me – it's very nice to know I'm making a positive impact. Cheers again, Smoddy (Rabbit and pork) 21:17, 24 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Welcome back, in advance (lol)

I just saw your work, comments and name on so many places, now you are on a vacation. I presume you will see this only after you come back. So, I am wishing you 'welcome back.'--Bhadani 07:07, 27 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Thank you

Hello, Utcursch. Thanks for your vote at my adminship nomination. I appreciate the support. Cheers! — Trilobite (Talk) 14:06, 27 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Thanks for the welcome and advice. Terrace4 12:10, 29 Apr 2005 (UTC)


Thank you for your comments on my RFA. Although the voting period just ended with a 14-8-2 vote, I will admit once and for all that I used it more as an evaluation of myself. Being promoted would have been a plus. I was more interested in who voted, when they voted, who would change their votes and when, and the comments I would receive. Hopefully I will correct the main weakness that was raised by those who voted oppose -- that I was too eager to put articles on VFD. Also, I will try to interact more with those Wikipedians who did not vote at all.

As for next month, I don't know if I will nominate myself again. I might not think about it until somebody else puts me up there on RFA at a later date. Eventually, I see myself as an admin, especially as the number of articles and users continues to grow. Thanks again and good luck at improving this vast archive of free knowledge. Zzyzx11 (Talk) 09:19, 3 May 2005 (UTC)

Thanks for the welcome note

Thanks for the welcome. You are the first wikipedian to contact me. For someone who is on vacation you were quick to do what I didn't know how to do and redirected the page that I noted for change. Yesterday I made a change to a page and the whole page disappeared. Today I noticed that when I used Mozilla Firefox the page appeared empty when I wanted to edit something so I changed to MS Internet Explorer and was able to make the edit. Has anyone else reported problems with Firefox? Kember 12:04, 7 May 2005 (UTC)


I have noticed that "missle", an incorrect spelling of "missile", is used on a large number of Wikipedia pages. Before I slog through them all to correct it, is there an easy global find-and-replace command I could use to fix all of them at once? How about one that an admin could do? Unlike other spelling issues, there is no context in which "missle" is correct, so there would be no fear of problems from taking such as step.

If there is no such capability, where could I go to suggest one? Obviously the potential for abuse is high, so perhaps it should be restricted to admins.

Thanks. LeoO3 16:58, 11 May 2005 (UTC)

Never mind, thanks. I found a guy who runs a spelling bot (Diderobot) to do it. LeoO3 15:20, 12 May 2005 (UTC)


Just visited my talk page for the first time and seen the message you left, so "Hi". Falcolombardi87 10:23, 14 May 2005 (UTC)

What can I say!

Just noticed the BarnStar. I am honored and humbled. Thanks. 21:42, 17 May 2005 (UTC)

Thanks for the welcome!

Just a quick note to say thankyou for the welcome.--FreedomFighter228 05:02, 20 May 2005 (UTC)

Most of what I'd like to contribute is either already in the Wiki, or (in your language) 'cruft', but i will carry on picking the occasional weed and trying to plant a daisy or two. --Simon Cursitor 07:28, 20 May 2005 (UTC)

It's been a long time! I wrote the article mentioned above and have self-nominated it for Featured article status. Please take a look onWikipedia:Featured_article_candidates#Military_history_of_Puerto_Rico and I would be honored if you expressed your opinon. Thank you, Tony the Marine


Done. Strange article though, imho, but as written now I'm not opposed to keeping. Radiant_* 11:39, May 25, 2005 (UTC)

Friendly Chat

Hi, I just thought that I would let you know that Linuxbeak has nominated me for adminship. I would like to invite you to participate at WP:RFA if you wish to do so. Thank you and take care Tony the Marine

Visualization / knowledge map


Is there any way to visualize the knowledge captured in wikipedia? I'm looking for something like a concept map in which the links between the different Wikipedia pages are illustrated. Is the search-bar the only way to consciously access information? Wouldn't it be nice to sort of browse through a knowledge map? I sincerally hope you can give me some information on this.

The knowledge map is the Wikipedia itself, which is a highly associated graph. One can browse through the categories. Also see the different category schemes. -- Sundar (talk · contribs) 07:23, Jun 1, 2005 (UTC)

Thank You

What a year! My first year in Wiki, a featured article and now administrator. Thank you for your support. Tony the Marine (UTC)


Thanks Utcursch, for your vote in support of my admin nomination. Paul August 17:37, Jun 1, 2005 (UTC)

Why thank you

Thanks for the note.

Thanks for your support

Thank you for voting on my RFA. Have some pie! I was pleasantly surprised by the sheer number of supporters (including several people that usually disagree with my opinion). I shall do my best with the proverbial mop. Yours, Radiant_>|< 07:58, Jun 8, 2005 (UTC)

We are in june,

Hello, can you help me to make some shemas. I did some locative schema for language course on the pic of right, I think that can be useful to have a picture template for each kind of localisation, usable in each language For the moment I did this :

The more need is this cube with the 6 arrows. Mine is terriby ugly. Pleaaaaasse Help me !!!

I did this one too : snif ... ugly one...-___- " .... Yug 16:43, 8 Jun 2005 (UTC)

First, that's for wikibook . That resume clearly all the localisation-words. And if it's put in an template : we will just have to change 6 words to translate this schema in an other language. That's my goal.
What I need is an attractive square (or cube ?), with the six arrows. Yug 15:38, 15 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Discussion at Talk:Pakistan

Would you like to join the animated discussion on the Pakistan's talk page? The current issue is whether "Pakistan is famous for its support of Taliban and 9/11 terrorist" is a suitable sentence to start the article's first paragraph. Your contribution would be much appreciated, as the current discussion seems to be more of a dialog between me and SamTr014 Talk:Pakistan . Thanx !!--PrinceA 04:54, 19 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Hi. I started an article on the Gurjara in order to address this "most wanted article." I'm unsure of the relationship between them and the Gujjars - are they the same group? You would likely have more insight than I. Cheers! -- BD2412 talk 15:10, 2005 Jun 23 (UTC)

  • Thanks - I'll take care of it right away! -- BD2412 talk 06:48, 2005 Jun 24 (UTC)

Hey! Thanks for the barnstar. :) =Nichalp «Talk»= 08:34, Jun 24, 2005 (UTC)


You deleted this article despite the fact that I had removed the speedy tag that was on it with this explanation in the edit summary: "rmv speedy: created today and flagged by the author as a placeholder: lets give it time to develop." Did you look at the history before deleting? Note that the author has now recreated the page and is (understandably) pissed off, as you can see from here. Filiocht | Talk 10:36, Jun 24, 2005 (UTC)

The content was only the name of the article, without any expansion request or {{inuse}}. So I deleted it under CSD criteria: Too short with little or no context. utcursch | talk June 29, 2005 06:20 (UTC)

thanks for welcoming

no idea if this is the right way to answer, thanks anyway. do hope the articles I've written up to now are ok and my english is'nt too appalling as I'm not a native speaker. How can I change wrong spelling in a headline if the article is edited ? anyway, thanks again

Copyright Violations

It's nice to know you; I received a "Welcome Message" from Mr. Kingturtle in June 3th. I wrote the following message in his talk page, but he takes his "Summer Vacation" until mid-August. I found a "copyright violation" long time ago, that is, a German tennis player Tommy Haas. The First Edition includes copyright violation from ATP Official site, but someone added {{cleanup}}, not {{copyvio|url=}}. I noticed it in January 2005, but I wasn't accustomed to Wikipedia Project then. I didn't know what {{cleanup}} meant. After 9 revision histories, This Edition removed copied sentences. What shall we do in this case? We can't leave such problematic histories, the previous nine. (I desperately searched for an administrator.) --Hhst 14:44, 26 Jun 2005 (UTC)


Thanks for that neat-looking medal! Jarlaxle June 30, 2005 10:24 (UTC)


Thanks Utcursch for the Barnstar Award ! burdak 2 July 2005 10:05 (UTC)

Hello Utcursch

I have a problem. Some jerk vandalized my personal page and I want to block anyone from editing it. How do I go about doing that? Thanks for the welcome by the way. Ciao.

Tombseye 4 July 2005 02:40 (UTC)

Also the Ghilzai/Khilji article needs to go since there is a Ghilzai article already

I edited the Ghilzai article so it should be okay. Shall I delete or can you?

Wikipedia:Votes for deletion/

I was wondering if you could reply to my VfD comments in reply to your vote, either inline at Wikipedia:Votes for deletion/ or on my talk page. I'm just trying to get my head around the reasons for the deletion. I have been taking on certain VfDed pages and trying to save them by re-writing. If I better understand the criteria for deletion, then I can select my battles more effectively.

Thanks! -Harmil 5 July 2005 19:56 (UTC)


A page that you joined to help with associate with other members of the Wikipedia community is on VfD.

Hi - I don't think I ever thanked you for the barnstar (although I've left it on my user page) and I seem to need to thank you again for supporting my RFA. So, thanks and thanks! -- Rick Block (talk) 03:53, August 17, 2005 (UTC)

the OP_Nayyar page

Hey Utcursch, I just noticed that you removed the content I added yesterday to OP_Nayyar's wiki as copyright violation. I am a newbie to Wikipedia and was not aware that if a website does not mention anything about copyrights, then the default case is that it is copyrighted. I used to think it was non-copyrighted by default. Am impressed at your swift work though, hats off to you.

Also I have added similar biographies to Kadri_Gopalnath, Nadaka, and Hariharan which may possibly violate copyrights, you may want to review them for copyright violations. Thanks. --Rfc9000


You wrote on my talk page about a revert war going on in Hindi language and Urdu language. I am pretty sure that User:Happytime is User:Thetruth and a few anonymous IPs. In the past I've had to have pages protected because of his childish edits. Just take a look at this [1]. If you have a look at the contribution history of Happytime and the truth you will see (especially with the truth) how me and others have tried to create a dialogue but the user is only there to make ridiculous edits.

How can we go about getting the user banned? Sukh | ਸੁਖ | Talk 07:58, 26 August 2005 (UTC)

Seconded. --skoosh (háblame) 20:43, 27 August 2005 (UTC)

Hi Utcursch, just a quick note to thank you for your support on my RfA. I was pleased to see so much support, especially from people such as you who I do not know very well, if at all.

Regarding Sindhi people

Hey Utcursch, some guy decided to make two articles about Sindhis with one that makes absolutely no sense other than as a revision of reality (Sindhis are a sub-caste of Hindus, as in all of them?!) so I reverted the Sindhis article back and I think the Sindhi people article needs to be deleted. Seriously, any encyclopedia will back up what's in the Sindhis article as it is now, rather than the bizarre replacement. Can you help me out? Thanks and adios.

Tombseye 00:28, 4 September 2005 (UTC)

Oh and now this same guy keeps trying to revert it back to this bizarre "article" that makes literally no sense whatsoever. Tombseye 23:50, 4 September 2005 (UTC)
