Welcome[change source]

Hello, Jonny Nixon, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your changes. I hope you like it here and decide to stay. Sadly, one or more of the pages you started may not fit some of Wikipedia's guidelines for new pages and may soon be deleted.

There is a page about making articles you may want to read. It is called "How to write Simple English articles". If you need help, please post a message at "Simple talk", where other experienced Wikipedians can answer any questions you have. Or, you can type {{helpme}} on your user page, and someone will soon answer your questions. Here are a few good links for newcomers:

I hope you enjoy changing pages here and being a Wikipedian! Please sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will turn into your username and the date. If you have any questions, ask me on my talk page. Again, welcome! Osiris (talk) 09:21, 24 November 2013‎ (UTC)

Deaths in 2017[change source]

Great job mate on the progress on Deaths in 2017! Looking forward to the progress ahead old friend! --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 09:16, 16 January 2017 (UTC)

William Margold[change source]

Hi, Jonny. Please remember to use the {{recent death}} template only when an article is getting a lot of edits from different editors. In spite of the name of the template, its purpose is to warn readers that there might be conflicting edits, not to point out that the person died recently. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 10:36, 19 January 2017 (UTC)

John Hurt, etc.[change source]

When you update an article to show that a person has died, please go through the entire article to update the verb tenses. Take a look at the changes I just made to John Hurt for some examples of what needs to be done, and feel free to ask any questions you have. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 03:24, 28 January 2017 (UTC)

Of course, I had forgotten to update the page as I was working on the English Wikipedia. Thanks. —Jonny Nixon (talk) 03:26, 28 January 2017 (UTC)

adding stub template[change source]

What's up with adding stub templates to moderately long articles, like Bert Parks? I seriously doubt that article needed a stub template. Angela Maureen (talk) 09:07, 16 September 2018 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) @September 1988: That article is still fairly short. Besides that, though, articles can be marked as stubs not only when they're physically short, but also when there's a significant amount of info left out. If you look at the enwiki article, you'll see quite a bit more information. The info in many articles here would be only enough for the lead section in other Wikipedias, and such articles here could reasonably be tagged as stubs. --Auntof6 (talk) 10:24, 16 September 2018 (UTC)
I second that, Auntof06, thanks. —Jonny Nixon (talk) 05:06, 17 September 2018 (UTC)

Welcome Back[change source]

Welcome back old friend! Letting you know how great it is seeing you back in action creating awesome new articles! Cheers. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 06:35, 20 September 2018 (UTC)

Thanks a lot. I appreciate your kind words, Lenin. —Jonny Nixon (talk) 06:49, 20 September 2018 (UTC)

RfD nomination of Kimberly Hamilton[change source]

An editor has requested deletion of Kimberly Hamilton, 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 the nomination (see also "What Wikipedia is not").

Please comment on the discussion by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Requests for deletion/Requests/2018/Kimberly Hamilton 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) 09:15, 22 November 2018 (UTC)

Quick deletion of Brenton Tarrant[change source]

The page you wrote, Brenton Tarrant, has been selected for quick deletion. If you think this page should be kept, please add {{wait}} below the line {{QD}} and say why on the talk page. If the page is already gone, but you think this was an error, you can ask for it to be undeleted. You can find more information about the reason here. IWI (chat) 01:02, 18 March 2019 (UTC)

Ignore this, someone removed the redirect and made a highly offensive page. IWI (chat) 01:16, 18 March 2019 (UTC)

Mountaineer articles[change source]

Hi, Jonny. Thanks for your new articles. I wanted to let you know that I changed the verb tense in the three articles about mountaineers from "As of 19 April 2019, it is thought that" to "As of 19 April 2019, it was thought that". That's because encyclopedia articles always use past tense for statements associated with a date. If they used present tense, the statement would become outdated after only a day. If you have any questions about this, feel free to ask. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 08:24, 19 April 2019 (UTC)

Of course, my mistake, thank you for fixing it. —Jonny Nixon (talk) 08:52, 19 April 2019 (UTC)

Deaths in 2016[change source]

Hey Jonny! This has always been the one regret I face to this day and that is not completing Deaths in 2016. That time period I took a period off for nearly half a year and just seeing how incomplete the page is starting at Deaths in July 2016 and beyond is heartbreaking. I was aiming at filling out the entire Deaths in July 2016-Deaths in December 2016 and as this year progresses to create the articles within those pages. I was wondering once I commence this task if you could help me maintaining it? --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 06:09, 6 May 2019 (UTC)

Absolutely @TDKR Chicago 101: I'd love to! I believe I also mentioned it to you a while back now. I look forward to helping out. —Jonny Nixon (talk) 06:12, 6 May 2019 (UTC)
Excellent! I'm currently filling out Deaths in August 2016 and will continue the progress in the other pages. I'll start creating the pages once all Deaths articles are filled out. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 16:55, 6 May 2019 (UTC)
Great! It may take time but I think we can accomplish this. —Jonny Nixon (talk) 09:54, 7 May 2019 (UTC)

Ellen Gibb[change source]

Hi Jonny Nixon,

I saw a headline somewhere about the death of the oldest person in Canada. I cannot find any reference to it here. Can you help? Thanks in advance, Ottawahitech (talk) 19:24, 8 June 2019 (UTC)

Hi there, on the English Wikipedia "Ellen Gibb" redirects to the en:List of Canadian supercentenarians article. So perhaps, by Wikipedia's standards, she isn't notable enough to have her own entry, aside from a redirect :/. Thanks, —Jonny Nixon (talk) 19:48, 8 June 2019 (UTC)

Welcome Back[change source]

Great to see another great Wikipedian back at work! --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 07:24, 2 January 2020 (UTC)

Thanks, mate. Good to be back, I've had a busy schedule as of late. —Jonny Nixon (talk) 10:01, 2 January 2020 (UTC)

James Irwin[change source]

Help to expand the James Irwin's article. ArionEstar (talk) 13:11, 21 March 2020 (UTC)

Heads Up[change source]

On WikiData John Davies (swimmer) and David Greetham (textual scholar) are listed as deceased, but I cannot find any reliable sources confirming this. I've added their entries on March 24 in Deaths with the hidden brackets <! name -->. Side note: great work on your recent articles! --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 16:09, 25 March 2020 (UTC)

Thank you! —Jonny Nixon (talk) 16:14, 25 March 2020 (UTC)
