This user is somewhat active on Wikipedia, and limits his activities to a small range of pages and non-contentious discussions. There may be periods in which the user is not active due to life issues.
This user talk page might be watched by friendly talk page stalkers which means that someone other than me might reply to your query. Their input is welcome and their help with messages that I cannot reply to quickly is appreciated.
If you are discussing an article: I would prefer to use that article's talk page, unless you'd rather not to use that page for some reason, such as commenting on a particular user's edits in semi-privacy.
If I leave a message for you: Please respond on your talk page. I'll probably add it to my watchlist, but if I miss something, feel free to leave a talkback.
If you leave a message for me: I will most likely respond here. Either add this page to your watchlist or ask me to notify you of a response on your talk page.
If I remove your message from my talk page: Please DO NOT re-add the same meassage, or follow-up with another message - They will be removed again. This is a sign that I am disengaging from contact with you and/or the subject matter. The only exception is for messages where WP requires that a user be informed of an ANI or similar discussion.
Please limit this talk page to discussions not related to any particular article, those covering a wide range of articles/topics, or personal comments.
If you wish to keep a matter confidential, such as discussing personal and/or confidential information, you may use the "E-mail" feature (usually activated!). I will respond in kind unless otherwise requested. This is not for discussing routine matters regarding editing on pages - use the article talk pages for that.
If you want me to take your opinions and edits seriously, you ought to register.. Otherwise one never knows who really made the edits, especially in the case of dynamic IP addresses. Also, having a unique body of work in your edit history is helpful to other editors in many positive ways.
Note: I reserve the right to decline or withdraw from a situation that is escalating or uncomfortable, without giving a reason, or to take further action through permissable means. This may include removing your messages from my talk page.
If I mistakenly called your edits as vandalism when I reverted them, it was probably because you did not leave an edit summary. Please realize that, in many cases, unexplained edits are indistinguishable from vandalism! This also applies to Rollbacks.
If you're here to troll, harass, or vandalise, I might not be able to stop you, but you will be reverted...and beware the giant dice.

Thanks for fixing that, I have no idea what happened there! - Ahunt (talk) 14:55, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
No problem. It looks like some sort of edit conflict or software error. Glad to help out. On the navbox TFD issue, tagging every navbox individually the way he's doing it seems very pointy to me, and makes it extremely dificult for other editors to respond. This does seem intentional on his part. I think an ANI may be the best solution at this point, as he doesn't seem inclined to stop until he's tagged every navbox individually. FWIW. - BilCat (talk) 15:06, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
While the article has been since rewritten to exclude this, on the Boeing P-8 Poseidon entry I changed the term offiers with officers. You then reverted it saying it was unnecessary. Is offiers a real word or a dialect usage from British English? I was a bit confused by such a simple and seemingly obvious fix. Thanks. Ajpappal (talk) 16:20, 22 July 2014 (UTC)
"Officers" is the correct spelling. I mistakenly reverted your edit, intending to revert the next two edits. I fixed it on my subsequent edit here. - BilCat (talk) 16:41, 22 July 2014 (UTC)
I can't thank you enough for standing up to putinbots and other slimy propagandists on aircraft related articles. Grand Budapest (talk) 08:20, 28 July 2014 (UTC)
