Questions? Comments? Advice? Talk to me.

Hello! Welcome to my talk page!

Please feel free to to leave me a message, whether it's informing me of something I screwed up, just to say hello, or anything else! I won't WP:BITE!

I have a few requests that I hope you'll respect while posting here:

  1. First and above all, be civil.
    • If you don't agree with an action I made—be it reverted you and left a warning, marked your page for deletion, or anything else—please be calm and polite. I am a reasonable man, and we'll straighten it out a lot quicker without screaming and name calling.
  2. Please sign your posts with four tildes (~~~~)
  3. Please start new conversations at the bottom.
  4. I generally like to keep conversations together.
    • If you post here, I'll reply here and leave you a message informing you of my reply.
    • If I leave you a message on your talk page, I'll keep watching it, but if you want to make sure I notice it quickly, leave me a {{talkback}} template (although not necessary).
      • I'll admit, I don't always keep conversations together, although I try to. If we separate the messages, no big deal, I'll probably go back and cross post here.

Since that is out of the way, please click here and leave a message!

Business continuity[edit]

Alright, that's why. I really wondered why my edits were not visible, I thought something's wrong with wiki. I wonder if you have checked the page, but still I am new here and you have a solid profile. :) So yeah, I trust your judgement on this.

current king of Kumaon[edit]


Tried to be civil and gave you a link so that, things can be sorted out by discussion.

You were not ready for the same.

I do not intend to but, I foresee the further discussion not being so civil with you.

If there is any more deletion than, I will surely not be so happy

Edit war[edit]

Please desist from reverting the anon edits to Jeremy Siegel and read WP:EW. You will be temporarily blocked if you continue – should be blocked now if I follow the letter of the law rule. Follow the advise on that page. I have blocked 2 anon editors and will temp protect the page if the situation continues. --Kbh3rdtalk 04:38, 1 November 2014 (UTC)

@Kbh3rd: It is an obvious sock puppet of User:David Beals who is a serial vandal and puppeteer and is therefore exempt from WP:3RR. Please see the history of Alchemy for a very recent example and Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/David Beals for more background. I requested temp protection a lil while ago because he generally does not stop until it is. Apparition11 Complaints/Mistakes 04:42, 1 November 2014 (UTC)

@Apparition11: I have blocked and noted 2 IPs (though he seems to easily hop to new ones) and have protected the page from non-autoconfirmed users. Stronger protection can be considered if he gets around that. The proper action in this situation really is to call in administrator help to put an end to the pointless and otherwise endless rounds of edits. --Kbh3rdtalk 04:53, 1 November 2014 (UTC)

@Kbh3rd: Thank you. I know that is the proper action. That is why I did ask for administrator help. I highly doubt that stronger protection will be needed. If he creates more accounts, they are generally very quickly blocked. He's not very subtle. Apparition11 Complaints/Mistakes 04:55, 1 November 2014 (UTC)

@Apparition11: Okay, I didn't see your admin request, just having stumbled upon the situation by looking at recent changes. As I read the guidance, though, I think the proper action would be to ask for help and then step back rather than continual reverting. The 3RR rule seems to apply to all editors equally. Maybe more leniency for dealing with obvious malfeasance; haven't scanned WP:EW that closely myself. And, frankly, my use of and familiarity with admin functions is a bit stale, taking an extended break from most of that sort of stuff while continuing to make more pedestrian contributions to Wikipedia and to Commons. --Kbh3rdtalk 05:08, 1 November 2014 (UTC)

@Kbh3rd: I hate to antagonize with this, but that really rubs me the wrong way. Please do read the policies that you are citing before threatening to block long-time editors. I do know that policy very well and re-read it in order to brush up from time-to-time just in case of any changes. As said in WP:EW, a couple of the exemptions are:
  • 3. Reverting actions performed by banned users, and sockpuppets of banned or blocked users.
  • 4. Reverting obvious vandalism—edits that any well-intentioned user would agree constitute vandalism, such as page blanking and adding offensive language.
Since he is posting Youtube videos of ceiling fans to BLPs and random articles, I fail to see how that could possibly be anything better than trolling. With that being said, I was slow on mentioning who the vandal was in an edit summary, and I do apologize for that. I finally got around to it after I realized what your blocking reasons were and that you may not be informed of this situation. Apparition11 Complaints/Mistakes 05:25, 1 November 2014 (UTC)

Pink Floyd - The Endless River - Reception Section[edit]

Hello Apparition11,

The newer and updated critical reviews are in for The Endless River album and now the band has reached favorable status with Metacritic and the press. I believe the changes I have made recently are accurate and should now be allowed on the page.

Thank you,


@PumaBoi12: Hello. I think that you have the wrong editor, as I have never edited that article. You may want to check the article history and see which editor it actually is that is involved in the dispute. Cheers! Apparition11 Complaints/Mistakes 23:22, 12 November 2014 (UTC)

GillyGish (talk) 07:44, 23 November 2014 (UTC) I edited the info box of a page. But since I didn't check the preview of it after saving it, info box has disappeared and all the other symbols and text which must not appear has appeared. As a new user I have no idea about this.

@GillyGish: I fixed it by reverting back to the previous version. Her credentials are really not necessary there. That type of information is more appropriate in her own article. Apparition11 Complaints/Mistakes 07:48, 23 November 2014 (UTC)
