Hello. I just wanted to let you know that I have granted autopatrol rights to your account; the reason for this is that I believe you are sufficiently trustworthy and experienced to have your contributions automatically sighted. This will have no effect on your editing, and is simply intended to help users watching Recent changes or Recent uploads to find unproductive edits amidst the productive ones. Thank you.

Working on it[edit]

I'm picking my way through the 145 images, no need to make more nominations! Thank you very much for bringing this forward!! Ellin Beltz (talk) 19:18, 8 August 2015 (UTC)

Thanks, Ellin. I had notified User:DanielRigal that I placed a message on the Admin Noticeboard asking for a mass deletion -- just so he wouldn't need to tag them all individually. I believe he stopped tagging them all at this point. I really appreciate you dealing with this. Cheers. CactusWriter (talk) 19:26, 8 August 2015 (UTC)
They're all gone. Next time something like this happens, just poke an admin.  :) Thank you very much for bringing it up! Ellin Beltz (talk) 20:24, 8 August 2015 (UTC)
Thanks again for your quick help, Ellin. CactusWriter (talk) 20:38, 8 August 2015 (UTC)
