New Year's resolutionEdit
Happy New Year! One of my New Year's resolutions is to finish Wikiquote:Bartlett's 1919 Index - but I can't do it alone. There are 234 red links for which articles need to be created, and 275 blue links for which articles need to be checked. Although I've been trying to get one done each day, lately I have not had time to do even that! Please consider making a commitment to help me keep my resolution by creating or checking one entry on this page per week. Help public domain quotes find their home in 2008! Cheers!

Please forgive the apparent redundanciesEdit
Please forgive my occasional apparent redundancies, like my pointer, in your topic WQ:VP#Fans or non-fans?, to Talk:Blackadder#Cleanup tag that you probably already read. When I sound like I'm telling someone stuff in discussion pages that I should know they already know, it's often because I don't usually write to respond to a specific person. (If I am, I nearly always address them by name or say "you" instead of "we" or "one".) Having learned much of wiki work over the years by reading archives and old discussions, I'm constantly thinking of how everyone else might read what what's written, even long after the discussion ended, so I try to write for the whole audience. (That's surely one reason my posts are so friggin' long.) Then again, there are times I exhibit signs of early senility, for which I can only ask patience and forgiveness. ☺ ~ Jeff Q (talk) 19:26, 2 January 2008 (UTC)
Need of LetterEdit
Hey, what did you need Letter for? Something that requires the book or something I might be able to look up for you from remote? -- Greyed 00:21, 3 January 2008 (UTC)
Well, I guess. I certainly accept that he's notable, and that you'll do what you say. But the page as it stands is such a mess that I don't see what's gained by not just starting from scratch when you have the quotes. How about this compromise: you provide one or two decent quotes, they don't even have to be sourced, and I'll clean up the rest of the page and remove the prod. Then we can feel better about having a legitimate stub page, instead of an empty placeholder. Honestly, I would have done it myself if I had any appreciation for Zombie's music. So how about it? --Ubiquity 19:37, 30 January 2008 (UTC)
- True about restarting from scratch. I'll see what I can find in the next day or two. Let's leave the prod for now and if I find something prior to the expiration I'll clean up the page, get the quotes on there and remove the prod. Otherwise we can let it stand and I'll recreate later -- Greyed 19:42, 30 January 2008 (UTC)
184.108.40.206 & RushEdit
You're right. I confess that there is so much on that page that I didn't read the whole thing. I guess your point is that the statement is a formula: "Speaking of Satan, I was watching XXX the other day. Doesn't XXX remind you of one of those gay guys who likes to lay in a tub while other men pee on him?" I would agree if you could find other instances of Hicks using the same formula for other people.
I don't like to be in a position of deciding this by fiat, but there doesn't seem to be any other way when there is one camp that demands the quote be removed and another that demands it stay. Let me chat with some of the other admins and see what we can come up with. --Ubiquity 01:40, 31 January 2008 (UTC)
Late KNXV/KTVK Tragedy commentEdit
... I know it is a bit late, I just stumbled on it, but I just have to say the following: "Oh, the humanity!"

- To coin a phrase... --Ubiquity 10:52, 6 February 2008 (UTC)
Personally, I see no reason for that user to do such a thing. On Wikipedia, articles that have a unique title do not need further disambiguation, such as with Clannad, but other articles that share the same title need an extra disambig in the article title, such as with Clannad (visual novel). This is why the article on the band is not called Clannad (band) (notice this does not have an article), so I see no reason to do anything different on Wikiquote than on Wikipedia.--Juhachi 04:59, 17 February 2008 (UTC)
