This help request has been answered. If you need more help, place a new {{help me}} request on this page followed by your questions, contact the responding user(s) directly on their user talk page, or consider visiting the Teahouse.

May I post about failed end-time predictions on my user page? 78.156.109.166 (talk) 09:55, 29 January 2014 (UTC)

If you particularly want to, yes. See here for info on what you can have on your user page. Samwalton9 (talk) 11:28, 29 January 2014 (UTC)
There is an article on the topic. See List of dates predicted for apocalyptic events. Paul B (talk) 15:21, 29 January 2014 (UTC)
I suggest you don't do that, as many editors are now eyeing you because they think that these posts are suicide threats. Anyway, see WP:UPNOT. Epicgenius (talk) 15:36, 29 January 2014 (UTC)
In a nutshell.--78.156.109.166 (talk) 15:44, 29 January 2014 (UTC)
You do know that the Jorvik Viking Centre's "prediction" of Ragnarök is a joke? Paul B (talk) 16:31, 29 January 2014 (UTC)

no, why is it on wp then. you may want to give proof--78.156.109.166 (talk) 19:00, 29 January 2014 (UTC)

It isn't. It was removed quite promptly from the Ragnarok article. The JVC is hosting a festival [1] , which ends with a big spectacular "Ragnarok" enactment [2]. To promote it, they contacted various newspapers. The Mail, in its ever-reliable way portrayed flippant comments by the promoter as a "prediction" of Ragnarok by "experts" on Viking culture. Paul B (talk) 19:11, 29 January 2014 (UTC)
  • The answer to your question about posting dates on your user page is "no". Wikipedia is not a blog or a free web host. You have an extensive history of using Wikipedia as a forum, and doing more of the same sort of thing is not advisable. JamesBWatson (talk) 09:35, 30 January 2014 (UTC)

January 2014[edit]

Information icon Welcome to Wikipedia. Everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia. However, talk pages are meant to be a record of a discussion; deleting or editing legitimate comments, as you did at Wikipedia:Reference desk/Entertainment and Wikipedia:Reference desk/Mathematics, is considered bad practice, even if you meant well. Even making spelling and grammatical corrections in others' comments is generally frowned upon, as it tends to irritate the users whose comments you are correcting. Take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Thank you. --Redrose64 (talk) 19:44, 29 January 2014 (UTC)

Is this an automated message?--78.156.109.166 (talk) 12:05, 25 February 2014 (UTC)
Not exactly; the message was posted by a person (Redrose64) because they thought you personally needed it. But it wasn't specifically worded by Redrose; they used a template. You can see the template in question here. Bishonen | talk 13:25, 25 February 2014 (UTC).
Yes; to be precise, you removed one thread from Wikipedia:Reference desk/Entertainment and one thread from Wikipedia:Reference desk/Mathematics, both edits being in violation of WP:TPO. --Redrose64 (talk) 00:07, 26 February 2014 (UTC)

Please do not edit archived pages.[edit]

Please do not edit archived pages, as you did at Wikipedia:Reference desk/Archives/Science/2009 June 11 [3]. Archives are intended as a record of past discussions and are not intended to be modified. It is almost certainly a waste of your time making such edits anyway, as people will not be searching out five-year-old threads to see if new posts have been made. AndyTheGrump (talk) 20:12, 31 January 2014 (UTC)

Wait.. "While you can leave answers for any questions shown below, please ask new questions on one of the current reference desk pages."--78.156.109.166 (talk) 20:13, 31 January 2014 (UTC)
Hmmm. you're right - it does say that. Which is odd, in that we generally discourage editing archived material. I'll check up on this further. AndyTheGrump (talk) 20:18, 31 January 2014 (UTC)

Thanks

Perhaps you're thinking of discussions with an outcome which has been acted upon Andy? Things like AfD discussions. Samwalton9 (talk) 21:23, 31 January 2014 (UTC)

i dont get it--78.156.109.166 (talk) 18:56, 1 February 2014 (UTC)

There are several types of archives that are not supposed to be modified, like what Samwalton said about deletion discussions or, for instance, an old user talk or article talk archive. - Purplewowies (talk) 20:06, 1 February 2014 (UTC)

Sockpuppet of this user[edit]

There's a new IP User:86.52.12.101 with the same editting habits per his contributions, the same geolocation, and who has chosen to leave his message diff on the talk page of User talk:Great Time just like User:78.156.109.166. I suggest the new IP be blocked as a sock and the user's block be extended or indeffed for block evasion. Great Time could probably use SPI'ing as well, given his habits and comments at Wikipedia talk:Reference desk. μηδείς (talk) 01:04, 9 February 2014 (UTC)

Request reason:

Just want to edit Earthquakes in 2014 78.156.109.166 (talk) 09:48, 25 February 2014 (UTC)

Decline reason:

I am declining your unblock request because it does not address the reason for your block, or because it is inadequate for other reasons. To be unblocked, you must convince the reviewing administrator(s) that
  • the block is not necessary to prevent damage or disruption to Wikipedia, or
  • the block is no longer necessary because you
    1. understand what you have been blocked for,
    2. will not continue to cause damage or disruption, and
    3. will make useful contributions instead.
Please read the guide to appealing blocks for more information. JohnCD (talk) 11:27, 25 February 2014 (UTC)

If you want to make any further unblock requests, please read the guide to appealing blocks first and then use the {{unblock}} template again. If you make too many unconvincing or disruptive unblock requests, you may be prevented from editing this page for as long as you are blocked.

Request reason:

The reason for my block is disruption. I understand I have used Wikipedia as a forum. I will indeed only edit Earthquakes in 2014. 78.156.109.166 (talk) 19:53, 26 February 2014 (UTC)

Decline reason:

After this IP was blocked, you continued your disruption using the account Pubserv (talk · contribs). Under the circumstances, I believe it's in the best interest of Wikipedia to keep your block in place. Favonian (talk) 20:24, 26 February 2014 (UTC)

Question for administrator[edit]

Why was I blocked for 6 months?

--78.156.109.166 (talk) 19:54, 26 February 2014 (UTC)

The length of a block is at the admin's discretion, but is based on the nature of the reason for the block, its severity, and the past block history. Let us note that this is your fifth block in three months.--Anthony Bradbury"talk" 20:07, 26 February 2014 (UTC)
Technically it's the fourth. Two of the six block log entries are for amendment of an unexpired block. --Redrose64 (talk) 20:51, 26 February 2014 (UTC)
Why was I specifically blocked until August? I wasn't blocked immediately after my "suicide threat", but later.--78.156.109.166 (talk) 20:24, 26 February 2014 (UTC)
The question has been answered. I should warn you that you're in the process of repeating the behavior that got your talk page access revoked. Favonian (talk) 20:26, 26 February 2014 (UTC)

Talk page privileges revoked

In spite of warnings, you persisted in the kind of behavior that previously not only got you blocked, but also caused your talk page access to be revoked. Favonian (talk) 19:33, 27 February 2014 (UTC)
