No Need[change source]

I have handled the situation, though it seems some of the other editours have not liked the fact I use bold links such as this one: Nancy Drew. --Liam.gloucester 21:45, 21 June 2007 (UTC)

Withdraw from my RfA[change source]

I'd like to withdraw from my RfA since with a total of 3 supports, 5 opposes, and 1 neutral; it clearly looks impossible for me to get promoted right now so just to avoid anything else, I'd like to give up my current request for adminship. But I plan to try again maybe 4 or 5 months later. Thanx for supporting though, peace:) --§ Alastor Moody (T + C) Adminship 22:52, 21 June 2007 (UTC)

Can you read Billz' comment on my talk page ? I think it might constitute a personal attack. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Liam.gloucester (talkcontribs)

Template:Usertalkheader[change source]

Chack it out. I created the Template:Usertalkheader and it looks fine except that I was wondering you could help by fixing it a little bit since you have more knowledge of wiki policies than I do. Anyhow, I saw a lot of red links that the admins could start creating them. --§ Alastor Moody (T + C) 00:02, 26 June 2007 (UTC)

Making images links[change source]

On your user page, you have a blue round image with an "i" in the middle. When I click on it, it goes to your About Me page. I have a blue cell phone icon on my user page, which just goes to the wikimedia commons upload page. How do I redirect so when someone clicks the image, it will go to another page? LIAM ! 23:30, 19 July 2007 (UTC)

Well, I only wanted the above mentioned image turned into a link. I would not use it in articles. LIAM ! 00:36, 23 July 2007 (UTC)

Small request[change source]

Hi there, dear Archer! :) Sorry to bother you, but your help is needed... you see, Fvasconcellos, a friend of mine at English Wikipedia (and a fantastic person and well-liked admin I might add) has just been impersonated by a vandal here at Simple English. Of course, the vandal account has been blocked; I've just contacted him, and I was wondering if you could rename the vandal in order for my friend to register his username here. I guess he'll contact you soon; but I wanted to let you know in advance about the matter. I actually believe it's the same vandal who impersonated me a few months ago right here, and I was able to solve the matter with Sean William's, Tdxiang's and your help. Thanks in advance! :) Love, Phaedriel - 21:37, 26 July 2007 (UTC)

Hi there, Archer7, and thank you so much for the speedy action. I've registered the account. Gives me a chance to get to know the Simple English Wikipedia better :) Best, Fvasconcellos 23:31, 26 July 2007 (UTC)

Japanese users[change source]

Yes, I think it might be wise to extend. So far they have not reacted to our warnings. Therefore please block them (also do a Checkuser, to find any more). --Eptalon 11:32, 30 July 2007 (UTC)

No I do not think the CheckUser is strictly necessary. Let's hope you stopped it. As you say if we see more, we will probably need it, though. --Eptalon 13:54, 30 July 2007 (UTC)

VG article[change source]

First, I'd like to say thanks for helping things between me and Liam. But also, I'd like to ask you if you could please look over the page Jimi Hendrix. If you have time, glance at it quickly and see if it is worthy of that glowing "VERY GOOD" badge that I oh-so love. If you think it does, please vote! If not, I'll edit and edit until (hopefully) it does.

Disruption[change source]

I am sorry for my disruption. I sometimes... just... don't think about what I'm doing. That essay is getting around though. I did not intend to troll, people just sometimes are not thinking themselves, when they accuse people of trolling because it's something they disagree with. Trolls are from fairy stories, they are not real. On the Internet (usually in forums or slashdot), a troll is someone that says something controversial just to laugh at it back. Now, they are annoying, but when someone apologizes for it and just was playing, on an Internet sandbox, and they are sorry, they should be let in again. (I was blocked and then apologized to Drini by email, she/he has yet to get back). On WP, there is a discussion for the deletion of that essay. (I published it but I didn't put it on there, I'm still blocked), where someone mentions this, which I do admit was done to make a test, but as stated in there, it was not a whole threat, and i apologized. I sometimes do that, not because I'm a troll, not out of spite, but just to test. That should be forgiven. So, I would like to reënter the project slowly and carefully, and come with a new attitude!ionas talk contribs 15:02, 20 August 2007 (UTC)

Proposed Philippine Jury System[change source]

Dear Archer:

Pardon me if I have violated something.

This is the first time that I am posting in Wikipedia. I thought I can post an article just like other topics such as "Philippine Government" or any article about "Jury Systems".

I would appreciate if you may kindly led me to the proper forum, if there is any, with Wikipedia. I have not found yet another space to write this article.


Marlowe Camello, Email:

Philippine Jury[change source]

Hi, Archer,

The subject is not in the Encyclopedia but I am introducing it as a possible liberator to countries, like the Philippines, who are ruled by grafters. I am trying to encourage the Filipino people, in fact I wrote the Philippine Supreme Court Justices, to adopt the jury systems to solve the sinking existence of that country due to rampant graft and corruption.

At any rate, if you can't accept the article, it's find with me. I'm just trying to help, the helpless poor.

You may delete the article as you wish.

Thanks anyway.

Marlowe Camello

Kimberly Ashton[change source]

I now know about it. I have created WP:KA, one of the classic vandal "LTA" pages seen on the English Wikipedia. Unlike say, Willy on Wheels, this is a very complicated case. I need help simplifying it. Since this is a very important case that all new users should know about (lest a newbie say "who is Kimberly Ashton and why should I care", and to prevent users from being stalked/deceived), I decided to create this. How would you evaluate this page, and how can you improve it?Ionas Rand 01:07, 10 September 2007 (UTC)

Increasing Burden of School Bags

India had been a colony of Britain for more than two centuries. Although, we have become independent in terms of our own constitution, but still we are slave mentally and psychologically our attire is our own but the person within it is motivated by the British ideology. As we all know that today it is an era of cutthroat competition. So we can't deny the rapidly increasing importance of English language. At present English has become a global language. In the hour of liberalization, privatization and globalization English language has rooted firmly its footings in the mind of each and every citizen of the world. In order to be successful English has become necessary to be learned by all. English is not as simple as it appears to be become it is a complicated admixture of several European languages, such as- Greek, Latin, French, German, English etc. Thus it possesses approximately ten lack words. India is a developing country. Its population is more than 100 crore. Here we have lack o resources & production, so it has always been a challenge for us to educate all the citizens. Due to over population the competition is getting more complicated and horrible. As a matter of fact our competition is with the western countries where English is spoken in general. Therefore we, Indians being from rural and Hindi background, are quite unable to learn all these words. Though, we in no sphere of life, lag behind the Britishers but our main problem is of foreign language which is imposed not inculcated in our veins. I can claim that the Europeons will certainly face the same problem if Hindi is posed to them. Therefore, due to the increasing world over significance of English language we can't of avoid it. We have to learn it how to speak, how to write and how to make other people understand our feeling. Now the question that arises before us is what should be done to teach English to all the Indians in the simplest possible way? How can it be learnt by all? It seems next to impossible to learn ten lakh words for every Indian. So I am inclined to create a modified English named after Rajeev Gandhi, which will include about one lakh words and will also facilitate the Indians to interact with the foreigners in the easiest possible way. Reduction of words requires great consideration and strenuous efforts. We can drop out the undesired words, synonyms, undesired homonyms and homophones. I am determined to create an easily intelligible English, which will include our colloquial terms and the most essential words. As we see newspapers in English language are daily published across the country but very few people are able to read them and translate because the English used in these papers is complicated, vague and completely unintelligible for the common people. This way these newspapers remain beyond the reach of the billons of Indian. I think simple and easy English must be used in writing newspapers and magazines by doing so we will be able to reach the hearts of those people who are responsible to run bear and feed this country, until or unless we teach English to our frames, laborers and commoners, the vision 2020 of developed India will surely break down.

Today we boast of the fastest growing economy of India but the question is that “Is this economy able to provide bread to the needy ones?" No, money is getting accumulated in the bags of very few people who belong to the upper strata of the society and know the cruel ways how to exploit economically, culturally and sociably the innocent and ignorant people of this nation in the so called English fashion. 

Therefore in order to bring the farthest standing people into the mainstream of development we will have to teach them this Rajeev Gandhi English and students will learn it in play way method. Undoubtedly I can claim it will prove a boon for the general masses of this poor nation. It is a revolutionary step and will become a milestone in the history of human development.

Help in making a modified English language[change source]

Do you agree..? The fact that the spelling is far from phonetic - the same combinations of letters can stand for totally different words, like the "ough" in "tough", "though", "drought", etc English has as many exceptions to the rules as there are rules!!! LOL

I have a better idea how to make English "phonetic". It's not only about c->k and ph->f replacements. It's a whole concept based on 2 principles:

1. The alphabet remains the same. 2. Some letters change their meanings to reflect current English phonetics, I have the ability of making the process of vocabulary conversion quick and automatic (I have an English phonetic vocabulary of 100000+ words in files ready to use).

With my program you will be able to translate English Wikipedia into Phonetic English automatically.

[Wiz may progrqm yu wil bi eybl tu trqnsleyt Inglish Wikipedia intu Fonetik Inglish otomatikali]

 I had four years of English in high school and two{too} years{ears} in college. Congratulations if you just discovered that. ♥ 
I think the spelling can be the phonetic, but the English has the rules that are meant to be the broken. 
Best Answer - Chosen By You

In my opinion something should've been changed long before. It is hard language to learn, a modified English language Because Only 100 000 words are useful in life to express ideas . Make Yahoo English Dictionary , with help of your friends , for children . They have too study 1000 000 words now .

1.The slang often creates a barrier. And here I'm talking about two different kinds: the first, I guess, would be just the idomatic expressions that are used, and of which new ones are made all the time (esp by young people). Those kinds of expressions are hard for even older native English speaking to keep up with!! 2.Then there are things like phrasal verbs (which, I'll call a kind of slang for argument's sake). Phrasal verbs are those verb phrases that we know so well and use so often that most often consist of some basic verb plus a preposition or adverb that then changes the meaning of the verb. Take for example, the verb to MAKE. Then add some prepositions/adverbs to it: to make OUT (= to kiss and smoosh faces with someone passionately) to make UP (=to do at a later time, as with a test; to get back on good terms with someone you might have been fighting with) to make OVER (=to complete redo, as with getting a whole new wardrobe, look, etc.) See what I mean? :P These phrasal verbs are some of the hardest things for non-native English speaking to learn, and to be able to use correctly. 3.Spellings in english is hard...because so many words have extra letters that you don't through...psycology. One might also say it's the complex verb system, though - it seems obvious to native speakers, of course, but for non-native speakers it takes a long time to figure out which tense to use when, and many never quite master it. Its pronunciation, and all the words that sound the same but arent, like see and sea, wander and wonder. it makes it hard to follow ppl sometimes, especially when accents are involved. In most words that end in "e", the vowel is long (says it's name) bake, take, fate, smite, home, phone. The idioms are insanely difficult for others to understand. ("Rains cats and dogs," "see the light," etc.) English is not as simple as it appears to be become it is a complicated admixture of several European languages, such as- Greek, Latin, French, German, English etc. Thus it possesses approximately 1000 000 words. --Basant5 13:41, 28 September 2007 (UTC)
