I'm fully aware that you might not know me from a hole in the wall, or, conversely, that you might think of me as an asshole, but I've noticed a couple of your decisions and comments recently in various places, and I was prompted to say that I very much appreciated the frankness and common sense intelligence you showed. Knowing full well that there's every chance that in the future I could be the subject of your candor and honesty, I still want to thank you, as a rank-and-file editor, for your work.

No need to reply if you would find it awkward or inappropriate, just please consider this to be a personal barnstar without the gaudy graphic accompaniment. Best, BMK (talk) 03:43, 27 April 2015 (UTC)

  • I have to second your awesomeness Floquenbeam. I think you're my favorite editor here. We crossed paths for the first time in awhile today, and frankly it was just nice to see you. Hope you're doing well. Swarm we ♥ our hive 05:48, 27 April 2015 (UTC)
Well, thank you both very much, that's very flattering. I'm not quite sure what to say to that (looks down at feet, blushes, kicks at imaginary stone). I almost want to say something candorish and honest to you both just to break the awkward silence... --Floquenbeam (talk) 17:28, 27 April 2015 (UTC)
While you're here, BMK, on this safe, quiet, out-of-the-way page: I would probably have something "honest" to say about this. Not so much the edit warring, which can sometimes happen when both sides are 100% sure they're right, but for the dismissive tone. I assume you were in a shitty mood? You probably know what I think about "requiring" apologies, but I do believe in suggesting them, and IMHO you owe them an apology. --Floquenbeam (talk) 20:41, 27 April 2015 (UTC)
You are, of course, correct. I have struck my remark and offered my apology. BMK (talk) 21:02, 27 April 2015 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Hey, I've never really wanted to be an admin, but now I want to just so I can use your "Minority Report" block rationale, where you blocked an editor for the vandalism they were going to do. Excellent! BMK (talk) 00:00, 3 May 2015 (UTC)

That would probably be a bad habit for me to get into, I suppose, but I'll admit to a certain smug self satisfaction in that block log entry. When a troll complains about being harassed by User:Conman200 (which didn't exist at the time), and then that account was created an hour later and posted to ANI... it doesn't take a precog to know what's going to happen. --Floquenbeam (talk) 13:56, 3 May 2015 (UTC)
Well, in my opinion it was just good, common sense, adminning. (I'll go away now lest someone accuse me of working the refs.) BMK (talk) 20:22, 3 May 2015 (UTC)


Given these edits: [1][2] would you mind protecting my talk/user page for a week? - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 02:58, 30 April 2015 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done. I'll probably forget to look, so if they return after a week, let me know and I'll do something long term. --Floquenbeam (talk) 09:51, 30 April 2015 (UTC)
Thanks, btw I knew I was most likely wasting my time at door's talk-page but I was kind of hoping given the evidence that an "all-right it was me" confession would be made. Ah well, back to editing I don't think this is the last we will hear of it though. - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 20:27, 30 April 2015 (UTC)

Re. your comment at WP:ARC[edit]

That comment had me chuckling. There's an IRC bot that reports all arbitration-related edits to the clerks, and the edit summary was enough for me to click immediately. There's also a standard template, {{ArbComSize}} that we clerks can use for this stuff, so I didn't have to do much typing. Cheers! --L235 (t / c / ping in reply) 21:56, 30 April 2015 (UTC)

I'd assumed you didn't type it out by hand, but still; that was quick! --Floquenbeam (talk) 22:10, 30 April 2015 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

I'm sure that you get swamped by these things to the point where they become a bit bland. Nonetheless, here is a token of appreciation for all of your hard work on Wikipedia. --L235 (t / c / ping in reply) 22:45, 30 April 2015 (UTC)

Why thank you, L235. I appreciate the note. Back at ya. --Floquenbeam (talk) 01:54, 1 May 2015 (UTC)

Sorry for everything.[edit]

I think I should not have done all that dodbird stuff in the begining. I am now regretting all that has happened. If only I can get a second chance will I show that I will not do this again. I will start from scratch. Also, I have requested someone to help me find a way so I can get a whole pdf on all of Wikipedias rules and policy, as I have stated in a question on the tea house. All I want to say is sorry and I woll not do the dodbird thing again. The reason why I denied the fact that I was dodo when I was blocked for the first time as a yesterday for being a sockpuppet as because I thought that, if I said I was dodo that you guys would ban me anyway and would not care for my apology and for that reason I thought that, if I said that I was not dodo, with somesort of proof that I could maybe get unblocked. If you noticed from my tudrttt account that I never made a vandalism. Although I do regret going back and vandalising again that night. I did that so I could be unblocked if you guys thought that my computer was hacked. After being unblocked I would have said I was dodo. I do not really think that you are going to accept this appology, but please accept it, if I from this point on ever make a vandal edit then you can consider me as a person who does not learn from the mistakes. I also, will not edit on Wikipedia for a month after I get the PDF aof all the rues, just to let you people be assured that I read the whole pdf. If I do edit anyything after I get the PDF, you can ban me, and you can also consider anyof my future appologies as worthless. I promise that I will not edit as a vandal again, or do another sock.

If you want me to wait a year, before apoligising again and in that time period if I don't vandalise, can you please consider my apologies. Please, I am soory. I promise I will never do this again. Please accept my appologies. From doorknob

Please consider my apoligies, I promise and I beg you that I will not do this again. Please give me a second chance. HondaS2200fan (talk) 17:05, 1 May 2015 (UTC)

You can patrloll all of my future edits if you want, I understand the fact that I can never be a admin ever. HondaS2200fan (talk) 17:07, 1 May 2015 (UTC)

book not parsing and rendering help! — Preceding unsigned comment added by HondaS2200fan (talkcontribs) 17:34, 1 May 2015 (UTC)

@HondaS2200fan: I don't know if you believe what you're saying or not, but either way, it is not true. You have not learned from your mistakes, and likely won't learn fully for quite a while, until you've matured. I would be doing you a disservice to unblock you now, teaching you that doing bad things is harmless and easily fixed, that all you need to do is say "sorry". There are consequences to treating others poorly. The problem is not that you don't know the policies - you're not going to solve things reading a pdf for a month. The problem is that you thought it was fun/exciting/humorous to create an alternate persona, vandalize, and attack other people with it (including claiming that they made death threats against you). I'm assuming you're young, not evil. So come back in a few years. Right now, Wikipedia is not the forum for you. --Floquenbeam (talk) 17:37, 1 May 2015 (UTC)
This user has left me an apology on my talk with a link to your talk page Floquenbeam, but I'm confused as to who they are. Any ideas? CassiantoTalk 19:05, 1 May 2015 (UTC)
@Cassianto: it's Doorknob747. AKA DodoBirdsDie6 and others. --Floquenbeam (talk) 19:47, 1 May 2015 (UTC)
Thanks, yes it's since been pointed out to me. I always knew there was something iffy about that user. CassiantoTalk 20:25, 1 May 2015 (UTC)
  • I was wondering if this user might be worth sticking up for... but now I know their original username, and can see that they were blocked yesterday... yeah, this was the right call. Lukeno94 (tell Luke off here) 20:32, 1 May 2015 (UTC)
  • Im waiting for an official WP:SPI to come out that links these accounts for the record, my edit was undone here [3]. So far there are a possibility of at least 7 8 different accounts involved now. [4] - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 22:33, 1 May 2015 (UTC)

Arbitration case opened[edit]

You recently offered a statement in a request for arbitration. The Arbitration Committee has accepted that request for arbitration and an arbitration case has been opened at Wikipedia:Arbitration/Requests/Case/Lightbreather. Evidence that you wish the arbitrators to consider should be added to the evidence subpage, at Wikipedia:Arbitration/Requests/Case/Lightbreather/Evidence. Please add your evidence by May 17, 2015, which is when the evidence phase closes. You can also contribute to the case workshop subpage, Wikipedia:Arbitration/Requests/Case/Lightbreather/Workshop. For a guide to the arbitration process, see Wikipedia:Arbitration/Guide to arbitration. For the Arbitration Committee, --L235 (t / c / ping in reply) 00:49, 3 May 2015 (UTC)

I keep forgetting that when you make minor procedural comments at RFAR, you get put on The List. I don't care too much if I keep getting these, but I don't plan to participate. --Floquenbeam (talk) 13:50, 3 May 2015 (UTC)
My apologies; the thing is, when dealing with something as sensitive as arbitration, IAR simply isn't an option. Thanks, --L235 (t / c / ping in reply) 00:53, 4 May 2015 (UTC)


May I ask why you blocked Dffr (you don't have to answer) TeaLover1996 (talk) 12:43, 5 May 2015 (UTC)
