When you have added some content to the page, just remove the deletion tag. Thanks. Billz (Talk) 19:55, 2 September 2006 (UTC)Reply

do you like sign with esperanza --Vector (write me please)(Esperanza) 21:15, 2 September 2006 (UTC)Reply
No, I don't put Esperanza in my signature, however I may look to do so in the future. Billz (Talk) 07:36, 3 September 2006 (UTC)Reply

Minor Barnstar

hello, I recived another week end --Vector (write me please)(Esperanza) 12:09, 3 September 2006 (UTC)Reply

Excellent. Keep up the good work! Billz (Talk) 13:55, 3 September 2006 (UTC)Reply
thank you very much --Vector (write me please)(Esperanza)edit 13:58, 3 September 2006 (UTC)Reply
Feel free to give out barnstars to hard working members. You can use the following templates:

Can we please stop wasting effort on infinite variations of the barnstar? A simple message written from the heart is more valuable. -- Netoholic @ 16:04, 3 September 2006 (UTC)Reply

Sorry, I was simply hand-picking a few of the Barnstars which are on EN Wikipedia. I only introduced two of the Barnstars (Tireless contributer and Anti-Vandalism), which I thought would be useful. If you disagree, please feel free to delete these. While I'm talking to you, please could you read and reply to the messages which I put on your talk page, just for my interest. Thank you. Billz (Talk) 17:34, 3 September 2006 (UTC)Reply

If you mean about the adminship nomination, I believe it is inappropriate to make a decision without at least one week of discussion. -- Netoholic @ 18:20, 3 September 2006 (UTC)Reply

I understand. Thank you. Billz (Talk) 19:00, 3 September 2006 (UTC)Reply
True. How long is it for RFAs at en to last? About two weeks? --LBMixPro<talk|to|me> 18:23, 3 September 2006 (UTC)Reply

Check EA's talk page. I'm planning on changing the barnstar template so someone can use different barnstars on the template. The minor barnstar is smaller than the normal barnstar so I fullsized the barnstar image. But it looks larger than what it should, so you can resize it back. I'll just userfy a minor barnstar template to deal with the size. --LBMixPro<talk|to|me> 18:23, 3 September 2006 (UTC)Reply

Super, I look forward to seeing the new template. Thank you. Billz (Talk) 19:00, 3 September 2006 (UTC)Reply

Re:Image Upload

Sorry about the image upload, but I'm actually sort-of new in Simple Wikipedia. --§ Alastor Moody (talk + contribs) 19:43, 3 September 2006 (UTC)Reply

It's no problem. I made the same mistake when I started here. Billz (Talk) 19:44, 3 September 2006 (UTC)Reply


thanks for the help with the vandal....IT'S the same of yesterday night at (01:30)am :-)) --Vector (write me please)(Esperanza)edit 19:45, 3 September 2006 (UTC)Reply

Thanks for your help too. Billz (Talk) 19:46, 3 September 2006 (UTC)Reply

Thank you, Billz, for that token of appreciation (that barnstar). It's lovely! However, most importantly, I am glad that there are such nice people like you who appreciate even the little things that we do. Thank you so much!

Even small things can be very powerful. -- Mike Litman, as quoted in Greatness Held Hostage

-- Tdxiang 04:59, 4 September 2006 (UTC)Reply

I have to say, that is one of the kindest messages that I have ever received. You have worked very hard on Simple English Wikipedia and you definitely deserved the Barnstar. Well done! Billz (Talk) 06:03, 4 September 2006 (UTC)Reply

Subst template.

Hello Billz. just a question here. Must we subst the {{delete}} template?-- Tdxiang 07:08, 4 September 2006 (UTC)Reply

No. Templates should only be substed on Talk Pages. Billz (Talk) 07:14, 4 September 2006 (UTC)Reply

Your Rfa notice on your page

I've made it more prominent. Cheers!-- Tdxiang 07:11, 4 September 2006 (UTC)Reply

Thanks, but I preferred the previous style as it was less "in-your-face". I hope you don't mind, but I've reverted it. Thanks anyway. Billz (Talk) 07:14, 4 September 2006 (UTC)Reply
Sure, I understand. Good luck!-- Tdxiang@ 10:49, 6 September 2006 (UTC)Reply


I'm sorry with your problem...I'm always ACTIVE :-) User:Vector/esp you can fine the text to insert after an user login for promoted esperanza :-)))) --vector ^_^ (talk) 15:18, 5 September 2006 (UTC)Reply

I hope for it to be fixed in the next week or two. Thanks for all of your continued efforts and I am sorry for the extra workload. Billz (Talk) 15:23, 5 September 2006 (UTC)Reply
User:Vector/Esp sorry .....ok :-) --vector ^_^ (talk) 15:24, 5 September 2006 (UTC)Reply


  Please stop reverting my edits to the Big Bang article. I understand your point of view, but please do not edit the article untuil the discussion on the talk page has been completed. If you keep reverting my changes, the article may be protected by a sysop, which will stop it being edited. 11:42, 6 September 2006 (UTC)Reply

I have a feeling for some reason that you copied that warning that I kept leaving for you. A sysop reverted your edits, so in my opinion, my version should remain until the discussion is complete. Therefore, please leave my edits alone and discuss it with other members on the talk page of the article. Billz (Talk) 15:24, 6 September 2006 (UTC)Reply


yes...I know....But this time i prefeare cleane the page(talk) --vector ^_^ (talk) 15:45, 6 September 2006 (UTC)Reply

Sorry, but blanking a page doesn't delete it or mark it for deletion. It is best to mark pages which need blanking or deleting for deletion. Thanks. Billz (Talk) 15:46, 6 September 2006 (UTC)Reply

How to revert

How do I revert and article? has vandalised My new article Brenda Song. I can't re-write all of that stuff! It took me a long time. How do I revert it? --Kimberly Ashton 00:02, 7 September 2006 (UTC)Reply

You live in Blasham you say? I visit Gloucestershire. I'd like to meet a Wikipedian in England but I suggest for the best of safety I keep the address which I settle in be kept secret. My computer is rather slow. --Kimberly Ashton 00:15, 7 September 2006 (UTC)Reply
It is a good idea to keep your personal details. To revert an article, click on the 'History' tab, then on the time and date of the last good edit. You then click the 'Change this page' tab when you see the good edit. This will open your proper article for editing. Simply type 'rvv' (Revert vandalism) in the edit summary and click 'Save page'. You will be taken back to the article, where the vandalism should be removed. I hope this helps. Billz (Talk) 06:10, 7 September 2006 (UTC)Reply


Right, any more reverts and you'll get an instant 24 hour block. Edit warring is not acceptable. Learn to walk away and let others deal with it. Archer7 - talk 19:27, 7 September 2006 (UTC)Reply

I have stopped reverting this article. I thought what I was doing was right, but I have learned now that it wasn't. This whole Big Bang discussion and surrounding issues has taught me a lot about how to operate on Wikipedia. Billz (Talk) 19:37, 7 September 2006 (UTC)Reply

I also need to point out that removing comments is not acceptable either. IP users are free to comment, so long as they aren't abusive or vandalous. This is not to say that their "vote" would not really count towards the result. -- Netoholic @ 22:36, 7 September 2006 (UTC)Reply

Sorry, I thought that IP addresses were not allowed to vote, hence I removed their vote. By the way, I received your test email Netoholic. Billz (Talk) 05:49, 8 September 2006 (UTC)Reply


It's my duty to point out that, consensus being reached on Wikipedia:Administrators, you are now an admin. Make sure to review all the current policies. If you intend to use the "Block user" function, you must keep your email address current and check it often. The big thing to remember is not to use your abilities in any conflicts (editing or otherwise) that you're directly involved. Other than that, I'd suggest starting out slowly, and feel free to contact me or another admin if you have any other questions or just need a second opinion. Try to keep to the core values of Simple:, and remember... we aren't just another EN: Wikipedia. Congrats. -- Netoholic @ 14:32, 12 September 2006 (UTC)Reply

I'm very very very happy for you Billz....I hope that I can became a good user as you....for became a Simple.wikipedia admin Good Luck anDd GOOD WORK!!!!! --vector ^_^ (talk) 15:05, 12 September 2006 (UTC)Reply
Thank you very much. It is a great honour to be accepted as an administrator here. Billz (Talk) 16:07, 12 September 2006 (UTC)Reply
My heartfelt congratulations on becoming an administrator. Well done. T. Moitie - Talk - Esperanza 16:37, 12 September 2006 (UTC)Reply


Hello billz how are you....look a user candidate me on's the second time that in 20 days but I refused .... ;-) Good Luck for you Admin!!! --vector ^_^ (talk) 17:30, 13 September 2006 (UTC)Reply

You must be doing a good job on Italian Wikipedia if they want you to become and administrator so much. My adminship seems to be going very well and I am really enjoying it because it means that I can help more users. Billz (Talk) 17:31, 13 September 2006 (UTC)Reply

Okay, this time she or he has vandalised my page. You can block him for 24 hours now that he's done bad to my userpage. --Kimmy 19:00, 13 September 2006 (UTC)Reply

I have blocked them for a week since the 24 hours didn't seem to deter them. Please let me know if you have any more problems from them. Billz (Talk) 19:29, 13 September 2006 (UTC)Reply


Thank you for the nice greeting on my usorpage. My English is not that perfect (I´m just 16 years old and I´m learning English for 5 years) but I wil try my best... Amphitrite 20:31, 13 September 2006 (UTC)Reply

It's no problem about your English. If you make any mistakes on an article, it can be corrected easily. Billz (Talk) 20:32, 13 September 2006 (UTC)Reply


I change my user page...recently was very frequently..."changed" there is a vampire who looks for valdals --vector ^_^ (talk) 11:14, 14 September 2006 (UTC)Reply

I like your new user page and thanks for putting me as your friend. :) Billz (Talk) 12:34, 14 September 2006 (UTC)Reply

Hi, back

Well, after my computer LITERALLY FROZE when I was installing Internet Explorer RC1 and it permenantly wrecked my registry, I had no choice but to reformat my hard drive (It completely got rid of the stuff you get when you get Windows XP as a basis, as well as my Norton AntiVirus (!), as well as DOWNGRADING (!?) my Internet Explorer to Version 6) and reinstall every bit of hardware back. Honestly, I have absolutely no idea why this happened. All I know was that this week was a real pain, what with middle school starting again and my new math teacher giving 3 quizzes a week while still being a nasty stickler for details, as well as fixing my computer. Anyway, I managed to get everything back (for the most part...) and I'm back on schedule (again, for the most part). Thankfully, it didn't affect my RuneScape account, as the data for that is kept on Jagex's servers.--Death motor 01:38, 16 September 2006 (UTC)Reply

I'm sorry to hear about all of your computer problems. If you are looking for a different browser, have you tried Mozilla Firefox which claims to be a lot faster and safer. You can download it here. Hope this helps. Billz (Talk) 08:46, 16 September 2006 (UTC)Reply
It was just a pain, that's all >_<. Also, I'm not sure about Firefox, as it isn't the standard internet accessing tool set by Windows, which just so happens to be the type of computer I use. I'll go see if it's better though.--Death motor 23:52, 18 September 2006 (UTC)Reply


I congratulate you: you are now an administrator. Well done, and all the best! --Bhadani 15:32, 16 September 2006 (UTC)Reply

Thank you very much for those kind words! Billz (Talk) 15:56, 16 September 2006 (UTC)Reply
