Yatalu reporting in[edit]

✿(ღ✪v✪)キラキラ♥ This is Yatta, reporting in with the most random talk page message you've had in a while!

You should now

  • pass this on to at least 10 people (no, please don't, because it'd be horribly annoying for them)
  • try to eat air
  • say potato in three different (the more awkward the better) voices

In order to not be haunted for the rest of your life! (Even if you don't, I won't haunt you, no worry.)

Much enjoyment!

Hi, I undid your edit to the template because it was causing significant problems in articles, e.g., Justin Bieber. I was alerted to the issue on my talk page. My template knowledge is scanty at best.--Bbb23 (talk) 16:37, 22 February 2014 (UTC)

You've been whacked with a wet trout.
Don't take this too seriously. Someone just wants to let you know you did something silly.

Template_talk:Infobox_musical_artist#Serious_malfunction --NeilN talk to me 16:45, 22 February 2014 (UTC)

Well, I wasn't expecting anything like that to happen... Sorry for the problems that caused, and thanks for the speedy response (and the well-deserved trout)! ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 17:14, 22 February 2014 (UTC)
Oh, I dunno, I thought seeing Justin Bieber take over almost my entire monitor was in keeping with his style.--Bbb23 (talk) 17:30, 22 February 2014 (UTC)
Bbb = Big Belieber Buff? :-) --NeilN talk to me 17:35, 22 February 2014 (UTC)
I leave that to Drmies. I don't think I've ever even heard him sing. I just glance at the continuous news of his antics, and, of course, he does live in my part of the world.--Bbb23 (talk) 18:06, 22 February 2014 (UTC)
Yes, that does seem in keeping with his attitude... =) I've copied over the testcases from Template:px/doc to Template:px/testcases and can see that some of them fail on the sandbox copy. I also note that {{Infobox musical artist}} uses Module:InfoboxImage, which may have contributed to the breakage, so {{px}} needs appropriate testcases of that usage added as well, but I don't know enough about using it to do so myself (and the breathless nature of the appropriate code in Infobox musical artist doesn't help with my understanding of it at all =P ). I may make another edit or two to the sandbox, just for fun's sake, but I'll leave the main template alone after that little kerfluffle. =) ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 17:48, 22 February 2014 (UTC)

Regarding the "Retired" pane on your user talk page[edit]

Hello Good Friend :) !! There is a "This user is retired" declaration on the top of this page. Since you are still editing wikipedia I think you should remove it. Sorry if I poked my nose in your matters without knowing the full context.

Thanx :)

King Of The Wise (talk) 09:28, 28 March 2014 (UTC)

Hello King of the Wise! My view of the "retired" tag has always been that it should reflect the editor's wishes, regardless of whether they are still actually editing (so long as they are not obviously still active or attempting to use the tag for mischievous reasons). And if you look at my contributions, you'll notice that, while I do still edit, there is no regularity to it whatsoever - I might edit a dozen times in a week, then go several months without editing. It comes down to what pages I happen to be looking at and what I feel like doing. Despite this, I do consider myself to be retired from Wikipedia, so to my mind, at least, the tag is appropriate. I go into a bit more detail in my retirement message. Cheers! =) ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 16:38, 28 March 2014 (UTC)
Oh, well allright then. I guess everyone has his own views. I had not opened your user page before, I guess I should have had. Anyways, sorry if i disturbed you.

Wikiarchaeologist userbox[edit]

Hi, hope you don't mind that I've added your userbox to the gallery. -Ugog Nizdast (talk) 19:12, 19 April 2014 (UTC)

Aah, definitely not. I'd've added it myself if I'd thought of it. =) ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 03:25, 20 April 2014 (UTC)


Check back at Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/TheMindCrapAddict for a response from me. Nyttend (talk) 17:01, 30 June 2014 (UTC)

Incredibly overdue thanks for your 2010 efforts in my sandbox![edit]

Since I became chronically ill (waaay before I joined WP), I'm not good at following-up on things. I tend to deal with whatever pops up in front of me when I'm capable of recognizing & dealing with it, which of course happens randomly & doesn't last always long enough for me to finish things. I mention this to explain why I'm replying so late.

I'm grateful that WP & WPians help me keep my hand in my old talents somewhat, so that if I can ever control my illness enough to work, I'll be okay. Eh, that's not exactly what I meant to say, which shows I need to wrap things up & nap. Again. Anyway, I responded twice to you on my talk page and I finally figured out the whole redirect thing and was able to find the history of my sandbox, rather than that of the page in the article namespace.

Belated thanks! --Geekdiva (talk) 19:50, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

Aah! Heh, it's been so long, I'd completely forgotten about that and had to go do a bit of looking to figure out what you were talking about. =X
If you'd still like to delete the sandbox page(s), you can let me know here, or tag them with {{db-userreq}}. =) ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 23:34, 1 July 2014 (UTC)
Yes, please delete it! Thanks very much for seeing to this even though you are retired. --Geekdiva (talk) 23:56, 1 July 2014 (UTC)
Not a problem; while I am for all intents and purposes retired from Wikipedia, I'm active on other wikis now and try to make it a point to keep up with messages left on my talk page here. Let me know if there's anything else I can help with. =) ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 20:13, 3 July 2014 (UTC)

TheMindCrapAddict SPI[edit]

Hi. I'm confused by something in Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/TheMindCrapAddict and am hoping you can clear it up for me. You listed the IP address (talk · contribs · WHOIS) as a suspected sockpuppet — indeed, apparently the only suspected sockpuppet here, aside from possible sleeper accounts (which a CheckUser check failed to find). But I can't see any edits at all associated with this IP address, so I'm wondering why it was listed. Did you perhaps mistype an IP address here? If you can clear up this point, I and other people working at SPI would be grateful; otherwise, it will probably be necessary to close this case without any further action. Thanks. — Richwales (no relation to Jimbo) 06:34, 5 July 2014 (UTC)

Aah, I thought it was clear in my opening comment, but I suppose not: the whole reason I filed the SPI (and originally reported it to ANI) is because TheMindCrapAddict posted on my Minecraft wiki talk page their intent to engage in sockpuppetry; they did so from the IP address I listed, as can be seen by clicking the diff link I posted. Sorry for the confusion, and I hope this clarifies things! ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 06:49, 5 July 2014 (UTC)

Shonen Jump (magazine)[edit]

Hi, Dinoguy1000. I know that you're retired and you don't know me, but I need your help. You're listed at Wikipedia:WikiProject Anime and manga/Manga magazines as having the issues I need of the Shonen Jump magazine. My main request is a preview of Wāqwāq on the August 2009 issue. Also, there is an interview with Riichiro Inagaki on the February 2006 issue, and an interview with Hiroyuki Takei on an unspecified issue of 2005 (I only know it, unfortunately; it's cited here). I wonder if you could help me. Cheers, Gabriel Yuji (talk) 01:26, 13 July 2014 (UTC)

Hi Gabriel, I should be able to help with those sometime in the next few days, I think. If I haven't gotten back to you in a week or so, give me a poke to remind me. =) ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 04:01, 13 July 2014 (UTC)
