Welcome to my talk page.

Please note that I prefer to have substantial discussions about individual articles on their own talk pages rather than here, so that all editors of those articles can see them and contribute.

Please also note that I prefer conversations to be in one place. I will reply to comments where they are left and, if necessary, transfer comments back to the original talk page where the conversation was initiated.

Google Code-In 2019 is coming - please mentor some documentation tasks![edit]


Google Code-In, Google-organized contest in which the Wikimedia Foundation participates, starts in a few weeks. This contest is about taking high school students into the world of opensource. I'm sending you this message because you recently edited a documentation page at the English Wikipedia.

I would like to ask you to take part in Google Code-In as a mentor. That would mean to prepare at least one task (it can be documentation related, or something else - the other categories are Code, Design, Quality Assurance and Outreach) for the participants, and help the student to complete it. Please sign up at the contest page and send us your Google account address to [email protected], so we can invite you in!

From my own experience, Google Code-In can be fun, you can make several new friends, attract new people to your wiki and make them part of your community.

If you have any questions, please let us know at [email protected]

Thank you!

Tom & Jerry as served at Karl Ratzsch's, Milwaukee.jpg Damon Runyon's short story "Dancing Dan's Christmas" is a fun read if you have the time. Right from the start it extols the virtues of the hot Tom and Jerry

This hot Tom and Jerry is an old-time drink that is once used by one and all in this country to celebrate Christmas with, and in fact it is once so popular that many people think Christmas is invented only to furnish an excuse for hot Tom and Jerry, although of course this is by no means true.

No matter what concoction is your favorite to imbibe during this festive season I would like to toast you with it and to thank you for all your work here at the 'pedia this past year. Best wishes for your 2020 as well T. MarnetteD|Talk 20:54, 16 December 2019 (UTC)

Good luck[edit]

Category:Corporate inversions[edit]

HI Timrollpickering. Sorry about that mess with me trying to move/rename Category:Corporate inversions. I had never done it before and mistakenly thought it was the same as an article. Read the section on WP:NCCAT and applied the tags and thought that the rest happened automatically? I would still like to rename this category. The actual name should be Tax inversions (as per the Wikipedia head article to which this category belongs, and to which I have contributed), however, Corporate tax inversions is also an accepted term (and is a valid redirect to the head article). The term "Corporate inversions" is less common and is more of a short-hand/inaccurate term for Tax inversions (or Corporate tax inversions). Is this something I can still do, or does an Admin always need to do it? Would it fall under WP:C2D, or do I need to propose at WP:CFDALL? Thanks for your help - categories is something that I should get more familiar with :) Britishfinance (talk) 12:14, 5 January 2020 (UTC)

If there's a main article with a settled title then WP:CFDS should be fine; otherwise a full nomination is best. Anyone can nominate and remember to tag the category accordingly. Timrollpickering (Talk) 12:18, 5 January 2020 (UTC)
Thank you for that. Kind regards, Britishfinance (talk) 14:18, 5 January 2020 (UTC)

Section 44 of the Constitution of Australia[edit]

Hi, thank you for putting back the Sykes section. I must have read it too fast. (talk) 20:18, 24 January 2020 (UTC)
