Alerting you of an unreasionable request. VandalFighterFR(V) Bad warning? 16:34, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

Thanks!

Thankyou! SimonSys (talk) 18:39, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

Hello

Hello Cman16. You spelt 'breach' wrong. You spelt it 'breech'. The proper way to spell it is 'breach'. Remember that now. TurboGolf 06:50, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

I've heard of nicely correcting someones spelling but geez just judging from that post it sound like you were insulting me.-- CM16 MLB  17:30, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

Response

Hi ChristianMan. I've responded to your comments at my RfA to help you become more familiar with my contributions. Thank you for your comments. Malinaccier (talk) (review) 01:40, 6 January 2009 (UTC)

AGF

Hello Cman, please remember to Assume Good Faith. You were not attacked in WP:RfA and I think you mis-construed Tharnton's note of your spelling of "breach". Lets all just chill out. Try not to be offended so easily. Regards, Kennedy (talk) 11:54, 6 January 2009 (UTC)

I can see that, I'm just naturally a little touchy on here....I'll try to improve.-- CM16 MLB  18:45, 6 January 2009 (UTC)

User talk:American Eagle

Hello, I have edited your comment on the above talk page. It is not really a good idea to give out your email address, IM usernames etc online. I'd suggest using email instead. Regards, Kennedy (talk) 14:10, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

Hello, following your edit, I have sanitized the history of American Eagle's talk page; in general, do not leave any info that could serve to personally identify you on publicly viewable pages. I guess you'll have set an email addy in your profile - people can contact you that way without that addy being revealed to everyone. You might want to look at your comment on that page again, and perhaps add something like "Please contact me to get info on how to reacgh me." - Thanks for your understanding --Eptalon (talk) 14:41, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

Tough on vandals

"Tough" meaning that you want to smash them? But if you are christian, then you shall forgive their sins and their dastardly deeds. BaenreEntreri (talk) 01:31, 9 January 2009 (UTC)

I do forgive them BUT it doesn't mean I let them do what they please.-- CM16 MLB  02:10, 9 January 2009 (UTC)

WikiCup Points

Rollback and Undo

Hi ChristianMan16, you are probably correct that I should have used "undo" as it wasn't vandalism, just a guideline thing. I did leave message explaining the change on their userpage, which was full of vandal warnings (must be a shared IP address). I shall take more care in future, all the best, --Peterdownunder (talk) 06:29, 16 January 2009 (UTC)

    • Hi ChristianMan16, I'm not trying to create a problem here, but I would remind you of the Manual of Style guideline "Articles that focus on a topic specific to a particular English-speaking country should generally conform to the usage and spelling of that country." There would never have been such a thing as an English jail - I shall go back to the page and do a couple of things to solve the problem - 1. Make sure the word is hyperlinked and 2. Put in both spellings to help the US readers eg. gaol (jail). That should keep everyone happy. Best wishes, --Peterdownunder (talk) 06:39, 16 January 2009 (UTC)

It's me

It's me, Aaron, and what made you revert yourself? The edits were well-sourced. Removal of well-sourced edits, with claims supported by said sources, is not justified. JustizFürAlles (talk) 07:48, 16 January 2009 (UTC)

I figured I'd leave it up to somebody else cause I don't know anything on the subject to tell if it's biased or not, I just want to make sure things are done right, please quit evading your bane. It only hurts you, please?-- ChristianMan16 t c r 07:52, 16 January 2009 (UTC)

Well, it's perfectly well sourced. Please do not remove it, but you can find more sources to corroborate my claims. I can be reached further at joeyyuan (at) cox.net --Jonas

Re:Nameless User

Woah woah woah! Cman, please assume good faith. Have you ever discussed this with him before? If not, try to explain why {{reflist}} is preferred (if it is). Remember, bold capital letters is THOUGHT TO BE SHOUTING online. Try explaining things before you warn someone. A few people have asked you to do this before, please take heed. Theres only so many times we can remind you. Regards, Kennedy (talk) 13:11, 16 January 2009 (UTC)

All of this fuss over a template. Wow. VandalFighterFR(V) Bad warning? 14:03, 16 January 2009 (UTC)
That was nearly good faith, it's not like I yelled at him, all I did was put a little emphasis on the "stop". The <references/> tag only shows the references, while {{reflist}} shows them and give you the choice of columns which is good when multiple references are there.-- ChristianMan16 t c r 18:49, 16 January 2009 (UTC)

Thank you

Thank you for your support in my RfA which passed 24/0/0. I will do my best to better Wikipedia with the administrative tools that the community has seen fit to grant me. Special thanks to Shapiros10 for nominating me and if you ever need anything, feel free to ask! Malinaccier (talk) (review) 18:02, 16 January 2009 (UTC)

Sorry

I'm sorry, I should not have said that. NonvocalScream (talk) 15:39, 17 January 2009 (UTC)

Simple News Issue Three

--GoblinBot3 (talk) 21:27, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

Just a quick...

I stopped by to tell you thank you for your work on DYK, it looks like the more reviewers, the better. We might not agree on some nominations, but overall, I think we share the same goal, the encyclopedia. Keep up the good stuff! Very best! NonvocalScream (talk) 05:56, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

Hey!

I'm back. I forgot all about the simple wiki. I'm hoping to make more articles. See ya! SimonKSK 20:35, 21 January 2009 (UTC)

Juliancolton's RFA

Hi there. I do not know if you have seen my comment on Juliancolton's RFA but I am wondering what the exact reason of your oppose is. Just saying "Per above" isn't really helpfull. I look forward to your response. Addshore (talk) 20:52, 22 January 2009 (UTC)

Thankspam

Thank you for voting in my recent RfA. Unfortunately, I have decided to withdraw from the RfA due to concerns brought up in the oppose votes. The final tally was 4 supports and 6 opposes. I would like to thank American Eagle for the nomination. Razorflame 22:08, 23 January 2009 (UTC)

RfA Thankspam

  TrueCRaysball/Archive/5, thanks for your comments in my recent RfA which closed as 12/11 or "no consensus". I hope to work on the things that were raised and prove to the community that I am worthy of the mop, this includes showing my RL stability, that I don't have Ownership issues with DYK and also showing that I know what consensus is. Special thanks go to Kennedy for nominating me! Thanks for your comments! GoblinBot3 (talk)  

GoblinBot3 (talk) 11:00, 27 January 2009 (UTC)

My RfA

Thank you for participating in my recent request for adminship, which passed with a total of 21/5. I will try to the best of my abilities to maintain the trust of the community, and I will carefully consider the opposes to learn how to further improve. Cheers, Juliancolton (talk) 14:11, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

Re: Removing content in Jordan Galland

Thanks for the unnecessary ham-fisted warning. I did include a reason in my edit summary; if you disagree, that's fine but crying "vandalism" is just plain ignorant. Try calling on your Christian heart to assume good faith. Cheers! Precious Roy (talk) 21:18, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

If you had actually assumed good faith, the word "vandalism" would not have been used. Period. Precious Roy (talk) 21:24, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
If you took issue with my edit you could have simply reverted it. If, as you say, you didn't actually consider it to be vandalism, you could have either a) put your reason in your edit summary and moved on or b) dropped me a short note on my talk page. Instead you used a vandalism warning template—I'll assume good faith on your part and take that to only mean that you're lazy and that there isn't something else to it. As far as "doing your duty", I hope that in the future, you take a little more care not to bite the newcomers. The next one you "do your duty" to may not have experience with Wikipedia and you could easily scare them off the Project. Precious Roy (talk) 21:33, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

CM: Don't use that template if its not vandalism. Use an actual message you hand type. Please don't do that again. Synergy 21:39, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

(edit conflict) I noticed this while looking at new changes. Precious Roy gave a reason. You may not agree with the reason, which is fine, but what he did wasn't vandalism. I agree a note to discuss the edit (or just a revert with your disagreement) rather than a warning of any level would have been more appropriate. Toliar (talk) 21:41, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

I've handled it with an apology, it's done, let's move on.-- Chris†ianMan16 t c r 21:44, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

reply

Never mind! I am not offended at your reaction. Good luck and happy editing! --Nameless User (talk) 08:34, 29 January 2009 (UTC)


thanks!

for your help with article Jordan Galland I am a big fan. can you tell me how to add a picture?—This unsigned comment was added by Eastvillagegroupie (talkchanges) 13:43, January 29, 2009 (UTC)

thanks again

but what I mean is downloading a pic off of fickr...it seems the owner has to give explicit permission, I will look into this, thanks for your help, also I don't like the tone Precious Roy talks to me in! it is demeaning, where can I go to complain? thanks!Eastvillagegroupie (talk) 20:25, 30 January 2009 (UTC)

thank

Re: your attitude

What part of my interaction with User:Eastvillagegroupie has not been civil? Or do you make a practice of warning other users before they do things? I also take exception to your saying I have "quite a bad attitude". I took issue with your warning me for non-existent vandalism (which three other users were quick to—independently and without being asked—agree was improper). That's a bad attitude in your book? Please, before you insert yourself into a situation, do a little research and get all the facts before you open your mouth. Precious Roy (talk) 22:46, 30 January 2009 (UTC)

I'm sorry to step in out of nowhere, but ^that comment was uncivil. SimonKSK 22:54, 30 January 2009 (UTC)
*humms* I'm trying not to say anything more to set him off really.-- Chris†ianMan16 t c r 23:00, 30 January 2009 (UTC)
(edit conflict) Asking someone to gather facts before commenting is uncivil? Gee, this Simple English Wikipedia sure is more complicated than the regular English one. ChristianMan16: first off, "hot head" and "bad attitude" do not mean the same thing. Secondly, my irritation at your misuse of a vandalism template surely wasn't hot-headed, or are you just not used to being taken to task for your errors? Three uninvolved editors were also very quick to jump in and tell you you were in the wrong—were they being hot-headed as well? I have years of experience on the Normal English Wikipedia and I know well how to edit and how to comport myself around here. If I'm a little brusque when my editing is baselessly called into question, I hope it doesn't hurt your feelings. Precious Roy (talk) 23:13, 30 January 2009 (UTC)
Wow, that's amazing. I just realized I've been lectured on how to behave on Wikipedia by someone who was banned from the Normal English Wikipedia. I'm gobsmacked. Precious Roy (talk) 23:18, 30 January 2009 (UTC)

sorry

I realize that exclamation points do look like yelling, but this guy just is so self righteous...I give up! nice talking to you though! you seem like a nice person I can't understand why people have to attack people for whom they like to write articles about. I happen to like certain musicians..why should anybody who does not know me give a fig? Eastvillagegroupie (talk) 23:17, 30 January 2009 (UTC)

funny

welcome to the club! I just like to write a little around here as I find it thereputic ha! and I don't need some guy I don't know being condescending to me. But thanks for your help regarding the pic infoEastvillagegroupie (talk) 23:29, 30 January 2009 (UTC)

I'm gonna work on No Way Out

I know you want the Invasion, but I gonna make No Way Out (2009). Cool with you? SimonKSK 23:07, 30 January 2009 (UTC)

Sure! SimonKSK 23:14, 30 January 2009 (UTC)

  Done and   Done. Now about your template. I recommend working on it a bit more, as I kinda doubt it will make it. I can work on it too. SimonKSK 23:28, 30 January 2009 (UTC)

A few fixes and then I will make a proposal. SimonKSK 23:36, 30 January 2009 (UTC)
I found the problem. It's written in simple. I'll make my own, k? For the enwiki. Don't worry, I credit you SimonKSK 23:42, 30 January 2009 (UTC)
