article

Feel free to edit it! here--Spittlespat! ǀ TCS 23:41, 8 October 2008 (UTC)

Oh, no, Spittlespat! You can't re-create articles after they have been deleted. That is criteria for speedy deletion.
Perhaps you can write an article on something else? Sorry, Chamal. I've watched your page. *evil laugh*La Pianista (TCSR) 00:04, 9 October 2008 (UTC)
Well, you can re-create deleted articles if you have corrected the issues that led to its deletion and improved the article. See Wikipedia:Recreation of previously deleted articles. But I don't think this article can be re-created like that, since the problem here was notability and that problem has not changed. BTW, the logs show that it has been deleted twice in the past. Chamal Talk ± 00:21, 9 October 2008 (UTC)

No worries, just get it done when you can. :)--LAAFansign review 03:58, 11 October 2008 (UTC)

No, stragegypage.com isn't reliable. For FLC, a project always goes inactive once in a while. I think the reason for that is the shake up there of The Rambling Man leaving the coordinator post. Anyway, I'll go and look it over.--LAAFansign review 15:51, 11 October 2008 (UTC)

background

Is it ok if you help me find an outer-space background?--Spittlespat! ǀ TCS 19:35, 11 October 2008 (UTC)

school

GAH! I a m only a 6th grader in algebra one! (at my school we have different level of math) There are two other 6th graders with me! Isn't it weird how there's a bunch of 8th graders in math 54 while I'm in algebra 1? Also I got put into the highest level of speeling! I HAVE TO SPELL really hard words with 5 other 6th graders, and a bunch of other 7th graders and 8th graders! Being smart isn't all good!Spittlespat! ǀ TCS 19:38, 11 October 2008 (UTC)

swear

Since you're buddhist you don't swear right?--Spittlespat! ǀ TCS 01:28, 16 October 2008 (UTC)

If you mean taking an oath, we don't usually do that. If you mean Profanity, well it's not strictly forbidden by being a Buddhist. We are supposed to choose what is correct and live by that. There are no 'rules' that we 'must' follow. I won't say I never swear, though I know it's not 'correct'. But er... why did you ask that? Chamal talk work 11:40, 16 October 2008 (UTC)

Do you think I am worthy of getting a barnstar from you?--Spittlespat! ǀ TCS 01:39, 16 October 2008 (UTC)

Hmm... I will give you one (or several) sometime, but not right now. Let's see how you go about editing Wikipedia first. After all, there should be a reason to give you a barnstar. Whenever I spot that reason, you will get it :) Chamal talk work 11:43, 16 October 2008 (UTC)

OK, I'll do it when I have time :) Probably within the next two days. Chamal talk work 12:26, 16 October 2008 (UTC)

Hey Chamal

Hey, thanks for all your help, but I've decided to leave Wikipedia for good. Come visit me on my new blog, http://thesecretworldofladyrenegade.blogspot.com/, I don't wanna lost contact with you.

You've been a great friend, and Rebel Queen Pokeynut salutes you. I hope you continue the pokeynut legacy here at Wikipedia, whilst I establish it at blogger.com.

What?!?! Don't leave!!! I suppose the recent block has made you lose interest here, but are you sure you want to leave? Please reconsider this. I'm really sorry, and surprised to hear you're leaving. Chamal talk work 13:24, 16 October 2008 (UTC)
Lady R, I was blocked too once upon a time...and it was basically for "myspacing" it up... Don't take it to heart! Take a look through my talk page and my contribs; as you can see, I combine the encyclopedia with fun too... It's not that hard, really, once you get used to actually working on the 'pedia. :) Please come back! —Ed 17 for President Vote for Ed 13:33, 16 October 2008 (UTC)
I was trying to find a user who has faced the same problem, and here's the ideal example. Ed is now a well trusted and respected editor, and who cares why the hell he was blocked or even if he was blocked at all? You have excellent writing skills. With some experience, you can become one of Wikipedia's best editors - something that I can't even dream of becoming right now. Once again, I'm asking you to reconsider your decision to leave. Chamal talk work 13:44, 16 October 2008 (UTC)
...and if you leave anyway, I dearly hope that you decide to come back...as (someone, I forget who) says, "Time heals all wounds". Remember that you will always have friends here, and come back to visit anytime... though I hope that you just stay after all of these emotional pleas we've made... :)Ed 17 for President Vote for Ed 14:31, 16 October 2008 (UTC)
Take a chill pill, guys, I've reconsidered leaving. I'm STAYING, and if you wanna prove you're one of my friends there are a list of tasks that I would really appreciate some help on (you get a BARNSTAR for each one) on my new userpage. You know, now that everything got deleted, I kinda need some help rebuilding. HJH LADY RENEGADE.

tv show on wikipedia

A prodigy has already joined us... Sorry for the rude gluttony, but I couldn't resist. ;D
But, as Ed said, it really isn't much. We probably won't resume our "episodes" for a month or two - get some serious editing in between, you know? —La Pianista (TCS) 03:23, 17 October 2008 (UTC)

Press TV

Hi, I noticed you just reverted a series of POV edits an anonymous IP made to the Press TV article. Thought you'd like to know that the IP reverted your page restoration. On the article's talk page, he also left a gratuitous link to some blog post (dated October 17th, 2008) titled "Press TV: Trying to Hide Wikipedia Holocaust Denial Allegations" where the blog's author essentially encourages his readers to revert the changes. This would explain the recent spate of POV edits to the article today. I would revert these changes if I could, but I'm already at three reversions, so I can't do anything about it for now. Could you please intervene? Causteau (talk) 12:48, 17 October 2008 (UTC)

Well, unlike the edit that I reverted which was clearly POV, this one is backed with several references and is written in a more or less neutral manner. However, I'm not sure of this is relevant to the article or not, or if it should be included. Since I have no knowledge on the subject of the article, I won't revert that edit, which is not a clear case of vandalism. I think you should ask from someone who knows more about this. Cheers, and sorry I couldn't help you there. Chamal talk work 13:06, 17 October 2008 (UTC)
The references are bogus. The Press TV article over the past few days has been targeted by a series of IPs and newly-created single-purpose accounts (e.g. 1, 2, 3) who have been attempting to insert (e.g. 1, 2, 3) the same rather lengthy bit of original research into the Press TV article. Besides myself, two other editors (1, 2) as well as an administrator have also taken notice of this. In addition, one of the single-purpose accounts has been blocked for evading WP:3RR through the creation of multiple accounts. I and others have fully analyzed, explained and discussed the situation over at the Press TV article's talk page. This latest link to a blog post that was left by this other IP -- a post titled "Press TV: Trying to Hide Wikipedia Holocaust Denial Allegations", which quite literally encourages its readers to modify Wikipedia's Press TV article to his liking; he even included the Wiki code to use! -- is just the latest in a long line of problems, especially when one considers the fact that the blog's author, one David T./David Toube, is by his own admission (viz. "Indeed, I wrote an opinion piece on it, which was published in The JC.") the author of one of the sources (an opinion piece) that these IPs and single-purpose accounts have consistently been attempting to insert into the text. Also note that the Press TV article has a history of being targeted by confirmed sockpuppets, which makes the present editorializing by a series of anonymous IPs and single purpose accounts -- all of which have been created within the past few days -- all the more troubling. Causteau (talk) 13:38, 17 October 2008 (UTC)
Whoah! That looks serious. The edits have already been reverted by another user. I've requested protection for the page at WP:RPP. If the page is semi-protected, that should control this situation considerably. Chamal talk work 13:55, 17 October 2008 (UTC)
Thank you for your efforts. Causteau (talk) 09:04, 18 October 2008 (UTC)

You said something on the vandalism alert page about a new huggle. There's a new huggle?WTE (talk) 16:35, 18 October 2008 (UTC)

There is, but I can hardly tell the difference between this one and the one before it. Perhaps you know, Chamal? —La Pianista (TCS) 22:50, 18 October 2008 (UTC)
Well, it worked flawlessly for me yesterday. 0.8.1 kept driving me nuts, it was very slow for me. The good news is most of the hugglers who stopped temporarily because of the bugs in 0.8.1 can get back on the job. Chamal talk work 02:47, 19 October 2008 (UTC)

BMP-1 article

Hello! Sorry, but I decided to leave Wikipedia a month ago because I have a lot of work in my office, also it is quite time-consuming to revert the different articles after wrong and incorrect information or vandalism again and again. To find and translate the 100% reliable information for Wiki is also a long process. I just don't have time for this. But I wish you good luck with your attempts to improve the article.

Well, I'm no expert either. The BMP-1 article is in a very bad state right now, but with the available information I thought it could be improved a lot. Still haven't got around to it though, I've been too busy. too busy... now where have I heard that before? I'm getting tired of those words. But thanks, both of you. I'll get round to it sometime.

Monarchs of Sri Lanka

I saw your new articles on Dhatusena and Kassapa I, there very good. Can you keep making more monarchs of Sri Lanka articles? Thanks —Preceding unsigned comment added by Blackknight12 (talkcontribs)

Thanks for the compliment. I was actually thinking of creating articles for the more notable kings (eg: Mahasen). But the problem is that it's hard to find reliable sources on these topics. Online sources are very few, so most of the information have to be cited with books. I'm not an expert with history either (never did like the subject that much) so I don't have enough knowledge to write articles on most of the monarchs. Because of my lack of knowledge, I couldn't do much with the Kashyapa I and Dhatusena articles either - just sort of touched the facts, didn't go in depth. Chamal talk 12:43, 27 October 2008 (UTC)

Noob? Nooooo. Not anymore! :P If you need help c/e'ing an article, I can help...it's been awhile, but I can still spin brilliant prose together even if it is outside of military-related topics! :D :D :D :D —Ed 17 for President Vote for Ed 14:34, 30 October 2008 (UTC)

Yeah, I know about your brilliance ;) I started working on the Sigiriya article recently, and was thinking of asking you for a copy edit after I finished adding some information. But since I'm busy now, it'll have to wait :) Chamal talk 14:41, 30 October 2008 (UTC)
Lol k then...whenever you need me to c/e it, I'll be there. :D —Ed 17 for President Vote for Ed 15:30, 30 October 2008 (UTC)

GuestBook

Hello Chamal N, thanks for signing my GuestBook with a torquise/blue signature. How the flipping flip do you DO that??? Please tell me, I'm dying to know! Reply on my talk page, because I've forgotten to add you to my Watchlist. I'm on Wikipedia from now until around 9 tonignt (assuming you go by GMT.) See ya!

Replied on TopGearFreak's talk page. Chamal talk 13:52, 31 October 2008 (UTC)
The signature customizing didn't work...:(

I just ended up with a signature like [User:TopGearFreak|TopGearFreak>Help! TopGearFreak (talk) 14:21, 31 October 2008 (UTC) (yes, I got it back to normal)

Thanks a bunch. I want my signature to be blue, say TopGearFreak like it always does, and for the 'Talk' bit to be smaller than the 'TopGearFreak' and to be sort of floating. That's the best I can describe it, I think I saw your 'Talk' like that. Thanks again, TopGearFreak (talk) 14:32, 31 October 2008 (UTC)
Just making sure that the 'TopGearFreak' bit is blue, as it turns up purple for me because I have selected it before and anything I select turns purple. Sorry, another thing; Could you possibly make the 'talk' bit light blue? I'm so sorry for all the trouble I'm giving you TopGearFreak (talk) 14:55, 31 October 2008 (UTC)

Thanks...

 The Special Barnstar [F]or being such a great friend. Especially in my current real-life position, all your help and support has really moved me, this is just for all the laughs you have ever given me on top of everything else too. I have left a message on my talk page, and hope you'll take the time to read it. Once again, thanks. Blooded Edge (T•C•A) 15:23, 31 October 2008 (UTC)

Thank you SO much for your help in changing my signature. You are definitely the most helpful Wikipedian I've ever met, and will definitely come to you again if I ever have a question. Give yourself a pat on the back! Ready to see my new signature? Drumroll, please - da da da da da da da!!! TopGearFreak Talk 16:02, 31 October 2008 (UTC)

RfA thanks

 Hi Chamal N, and thanks for supporting my successful request for adminship. It was nice to see all the kind comments I got from my supporters and I hope that I will be more useful to the community now that I have the tools again.--Berig (talk) 15:39, 1 November 2008 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Miscellany for deletion/User:Joelporter

As much as I am for keeping user pages of even the most mildly active users, no matter how self-promotional, the key fact that appears to have been missed is that this editor has precisely one (1) edit to his credit, that edit was to create the self-promotional user page, and it was created on 31 October 2007. So that nomination came exactly one year and ten minutes after it was created. I'm not clear on the review process for MfD but it might be worth revisiting this decision. - Dravecky (talk) 14:32, 2 November 2008 (UTC)

I'll just reopen the mfd if you want? — xaosflux Talk 14:49, 2 November 2008 (UTC)
I err... just did. I was using twinkle and it looks like it replaced the whole thing. Thanks for fixing it. Chamal talk 14:57, 2 November 2008 (UTC)
All cleaned up, bad closure on my part, I've noted the prior mfd; unmerged the nominations; updated the userpage tag too. The current listing is now at Wikipedia:Miscellany_for_deletion#User:Joelporter_.282nd_nomination.29. Thanks and happy editing! — xaosflux Talk 15:02, 2 November 2008 (UTC)
