The edit about rampant child abuse in the churches is a serious edit. It is documented. Some bishops have already been convicted. Making the pope page reflect only the ideology of his followers does not reflect the neutral point of view status of wikipedia.

Why suddenly?

Hi Utcursch, I genuinely felt that your edits gave a new push to the India-related articles. Why did you choose to hibernate? Please reconsider your decision. -- Sundar 14:04, Jan 6, 2005 (UTC)

Hello Sundar. I am not leaving Wikipedia; I will just be inactive for few months, before I come back. Thanks for the message. utcursch 07:48, Jan 10, 2005 (UTC)

Feels good to hear this. -- Sundar 08:22, Jan 10, 2005 (UTC)


Hello Utcursch, You and your maintenance edits are very valuable to Wikipedia. It's O.K if you decide to cut down on edits, that is fine. But it was a shock to see someone good as you to do so. Squash 06:16, 7 Jan 2005 (UTC)

Moa 3333

Hi, i'm moa3333, a new user. I see you are a deletioner! What about this: deleting archives completly.

This is more related to madiawiki, but anyway, we should be able to delete archives older than 6 months maybe, after a vote. I dont know if this is possilbe alredy but thinks to tell me that.

The idea is i looked at the backup page, and archives of text are more Go big, who wil download an archive of 100 Go????? and save it into a cd.

The point is we can save less to save more.... i am concerned about how easy is for people to download and save wkipedia database, witch i find difficult now. i think that if we save less.... we can save more, because more people will download the database.

I dont know why i am telling this to a death person but anyway, i will post it someday somewhere else if i don't have a good answer here.

Re:Edit summaries

Yup, it's there for non-minor edits. I usually skip only in repetitive minor edits like adding stub messages, etc., pamri 12:24, 17 Jan 2005 (UTC)

Hello Utcursch, I just realized that you are not an admin yet and you obviously have enough experience to become one. I have deleted quite a few CSDs you marked and it got me thinking it would be helpful if you had the technical means to process them yourself. I'm willing to nominate you, if you accept. jni 10:04, 14 Feb 2005 (UTC)

I have now set up the nomination subpage. As you are a RFA regular yourself, you know what to do next. jni 12:09, 14 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Thank you!

Just a quick "thank you" for voting me for admin. Now all I've got to do is find out how to use these worrying new powers... Grutness|hello? Grutness.jpg 05:58, 15 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Thank you!

Hi Utcursch,

thanks for the welcome :) I hope to contribute to wikipedia regularly. I just made up a 'resolution' of "a wiki page a day" (of course, that need not mean i would *have* to write a new page. It includes expanding stubs and making corrections too.) Hope to have a good time learning things from wikipedia :). thanks - User:HairyPotter

Welcome message

Hi Utcursch. I've been noticing your good job of welcoming newbies. You also introduce them to our notice board. But, can you use the latest name i.e. Wikipedia:Notice board for India-related topics to avoid redirects? -- Sundar 10:42, Feb 16, 2005 (UTC)


Thanks for your welcome msg, Utcursch. I'll try to do my best to work for India in Wikipedia.

-Prabhakar (Prabhakar)

Also Grateful

I've noticed your welcome message at my talk page. Thanks man. Eraserhead 23:50, 17 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Thanks for the welcome

Thanks for the welcome message. Unfortunately it was made a bit hollow by the hostile reception I got from some other contributors who seem to think that any article that doesn't unquestioningly support their own predjudices should be deleted. Thanks all the same. Nil Carborundum Illegitimi. Stephenboothuk 07:57, 18 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Wishing You Luck

I don't know you and I've never had the pleasure of running into you before. I was checking the people listed in RfD and that's how I ran into your nomination. I was very impressed with what I read about you but, the thing that made me realize how important it was for Wikipedia to have you among its users, was your dedication to India related subjects. I myself am a specialist of sorts on Puerto Rican related subjects, because I believe that the world has a lot to learn about my people. I'm very picky about whom I vote for when it comes to adminship but, you certainly earned my 100% vote. Good Luck as an administrator (You're going to make it) and I hope that you count me among your Wikipedian friends. Tony the Marine


Congratulations - you are now an administrator! I suggest you read the Wikipedia:Administrators' reading list and Wikipedia:Administrators' how-to guide before using your new rights. Warofdreams 12:03, 21 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Congratulations from me also! A little word of caution, however: I see you have cranked up your edit count during the voting, which is kinda good, but don't overextend yourself too much. As you know, we lost my nominator Fvw to wikistress (at least for now), please don't let that happen to you! jni 12:20, 21 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Congratulations on the new Adminship grant. Very deserving. best wishes on your new role. Cheers Arunram 16:35, 21 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Congratulations Utcursch. Squash 07:07, 23 Feb 2005 (UTC)

And congratulations again! Well deserved. -- Hoary 09:16, 2005 Feb 23 (UTC)

Congratulations and you are very welcome! --Ryan! | Talk 09:23, Feb 23, 2005 (UTC)

Congratulations, and you're welcome. I obviously believe you'll make a good admin. SWAdair | Talk 10:43, 23 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Thanks for the welcome

Hi! Thanks for the welcome to Wikipedia :-) I intend to stay around for a bit and share my knowledge. See you around! Sander Marechal 13:42, 4 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Hello, and thanks!

Thank you for the welcome to Wikipedia! I have been using this website for so long but it's only now I decide to contribute. Hope I am able to share my knowledge well! --Grumpyhan 16:47, 4 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Am I doing this right?

Is this how it is done?

Hi Utcursch,

Woohoo! Thanks a lot for the award! Much appreciated! =D

Hello I am fairly new round here, I spent about an hour yesterday producing a page on C.S.Lewis and it hasn't appeared yet ... do you know why, or can you point me in the direction of finding out?


If you look at the top of the web page when you're logged in you'll notice some links towards the right hand side. The last but one of these is "My Contributions". If you click on that it should take you to a page that shows everything you've written.

There is an article about C. S. Lewis, is that your's? If not, it's possible that someone identified your as a canditate for quick deletion. Unfortunately there are people who prowl Wikipedia loking for articles to have deleted, rather than fixing problems they prefer to delete the articles. It's easier to destroy than to create I suppose.

--Stephenboothuk 15:34, 6 Mar 2005 (UTC)


Thank you so much! my page is fixed now by you!


Hey Utcursch, just thought I'd thank you for the WikiMedal for Janitorial Services. I just saw it on my user page.

Aero Asia Airlines

Just a note to let you know that your article Aero Asia Airlines is unfortunately a duplicate. The airline's proper name is Aero Asia International and already has an article. Would it be possible to delete the Aero Asia Airlines article?? Ardfern 22:58, 11 Mar 2005 (UTC)



Hey, thanks for removing his vandalism on my talk page! ;) --Huaiwei 09:09, 12 Mar 2005 (UTC)

My adminship

Thank you for voting for me for adminship. I appreciate the confidence you showed in me. — Knowledge Seeker 08:11, 15 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Thanks mate

Yeah, I might pop in to WP:AN every now and again, or make a note on a talk page or something like that. Probably not often though. It's been great collaborating on this site though! So much potential. I only hope that someone takes over my Wikipedia:Baseline revision experiment. Anyway, all the best! Cya later mate - Ta bu shi da yu 08:24, 15 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Adminship - User:ABCD

As you may remember, you rejected my nomination for adminship in January. I have recently reapplied. You may wish to vote here. Thanks, ABCD 19:11, 18 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Thanks for supporting me this time. – ABCD 17:20, 19 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Thank You! from Carbonite

Thank you for supporting my RfA. I very much appreciate your confidence in me. Please let me know if you see something I should (or shouldn't) be doing as an admin. Regards, Patrick. Carbonite | Talk 13:51, 20 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Thank you

Hi Utcursch, thank you so much for voting for me in my adminship nomination. I really appreciate your support. Best, SlimVirgin 03:50, Mar 24, 2005 (UTC)

Re : Adminship

Hi Utcursch,

Thank you! :) I'm pleased to let you know that I'd like to accept your offer of nomination for Adminship. It does help me in my new page patrolling and some occasional grunt work.

- Cheers, Mailer Diablo 10:26, 24 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Thanks once again! ;) Greatly appreciated! - Best regards from Mailer Diablo 10:50, 24 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Help Required Regarding Assam Page

Hi, I am asking for this help as a senior wikipedian (and as the user who first welcomed me to wikipedia :) ). We are having some grave disputes in the Assam page. We have made a page on dispute resolution also. Can you please have a look on the Assam talk page and offer your viewpoints/suggestions what could be done next?

Prabhakar 04:40, 28 Mar 2005 (UTC)


Hi Utcursh,

I noticed that you dropped a welcome message on User:BugzPal's talk page. I think they might need a little help with their editing. Nothing too dramatic, just signing edits in the main namespace and a rather odd focus on detail - that sort of thing. I would handle it myself, but I'm guessing this is a particularly young editor who needs handling with more care than I can muster at the moment. -- Solipsist 09:02, 29 Mar 2005 (UTC)

A delayed hello from ChrisJMoor

Hi Utcursh,

I joined a few months ago. I would have replied to your message sooner, but at the time I thought your message was sent by a robot (I was a real newbie). Thanks for your welcome and may I say that your work in greeting people is an innovative way to keep people involved and strengthens this warm, fuzzy community:D. In general, I have found that the culture associated with collaboration to be friendly and cooperative.

My work on wikipedia has mostly centred around adding detail to existing articles on subjects I am knowledgeable or interested in. For example, I am presently involved in expanding The Time Machine. I have started a few articles as well, including Pop feminism and, most notably, 2005 Sumatran earthquake. I also do npov and style edits (check out the opening comments on chav and my comments on pig. Of late I have become interested in countering systemic bias on wikipedia.

I am about to start off my userpage. I'll add a link to it in the title above when it is worth looking at.--ChrisJMoor 19:24, 29 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Mel Etitis RFA

Was it your intention to really oppose his adminship nomination? You placed a vote on the "oppose" section with a edit summary "support". A mistake? jni 11:41, 2 Apr 2005 (UTC)

  • I screwed up on the Mel Etitis RFA, sorry for misleading you. --JuntungWu 14:00, 2 Apr 2005 (UTC)
