Empty categories[change source]

First of all, welcome to Simple English Wikipedia and thank you for your edits! However, I need to let you know that we generally don't create categories that are not yet populated (even though the probably will be at some point). In fact, we often don't create categories until 3 or more pages are placed in them. I can see why you probably thought it was a good idea to create these categories, but unless you intend to populate them, they will need to be deleted. Please let me know if you will be creating pages for these categories in the next few hours. If not, I will delete them. You may reply here if you wish. Thank you. · Tygrrr... 20:30, 24 June 2008 (UTC)

  • I didn't realize. I will try to create some articles. Hippopotamus (talk) 20:31, 24 June 2008 (UTC)

Hmm...[change source]

How does it feel to clutter up New changes with me? I've seen we've been doing it together, good job on your editing. Cool username by the way. Cheers and a late welcome :) -- America alk 04:52, 25 June 2008 (UTC)

Thanks... Wow, we have the wiki to ourselves. :) Hippopotamus (talk) 05:04, 25 June 2008 (UTC)
Yes, that happens sometimes. But it shouldn't last too long - somebody else will get on. Cheers -- America alk 05:14, 25 June 2008 (UTC)

How tall?[change source]

Hi! Good question, I'll add that in as soon as I can. Thanks! The Rambling Man (talk) 06:05, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

Hey Hippo, it's there now, I've added it into the article. Thanks for pointing it out! Is there anything else I can do or would you be happy to support the article now? The Rambling Man (talk) 06:47, 2 July 2008 (UTC)
I'm happy to support now. I would probably add a Wiktionary link to "earned" as it isn't quite Simple English, but apart from that it's good! Hippopotamus (talk) 13:59, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

Your SUL request[change source]

There's an active user on meta, m:User:Dbl2010, who is the bureaucrat for tr.wikiquote and can rename the account there. It may be a good idea to contact him for the rename on that project. Kylu (talk) 07:22, 3 July 2008 (UTC)

PVGA comments[change source]

Hi Hippo. Thanks so much for your comments on Kournikova and AA 11. I've dealt with them all now and responded on the talk page of each article. If you have anything else you'd like to comment on then I'd be delighted to hear from you. All the best. The Rambling Man (talk) 07:08, 8 July 2008 (UTC)

SPL[change source]

Hi Mr Hippo, Thanks for your comments on the PGA, SPL. I have worked on your points and have worked some of the list into the article. I was wondering if you could maybe have a look again, and possibly re-consider your vote, or if possible give me some more pointers?

RfD nomination of Colleges and universities in the Northern Mariana Islands[change source]

An editor has requested deletion of Colleges and universities in the Northern Mariana Islands, an article you created. We appreciate your changes, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article meets Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also "What Wikipedia is not").

Please comment on the discussion by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Requests for deletion/Requests/2016/Colleges and universities in the Northern Mariana Islands and please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also change the article during the discussion to address the nominator's concerns. But you should not remove the requests for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate. Thank you very much. Auntof6 (talk) 04:43, 26 January 2016 (UTC)
