Hello to all fellow Wikipedians. GoodDay 22:40, 17 November 2005 (UTC).

Noia 64 apps karm.svg This user has been on Wikipedia for 8 years, 8 months and 11 days.

You may be wondering why my archives only start at August 2007. The reason: I didn't archive my pages before that date, I merely deleted them (as I didn't know how to archive). Therefore, if anyone wishes to see material before August 2007? check out this talkpage's 'history'.

Awards[edit]

I've an Awards page, where I keep a list of Wikipedia awards bestowed upon me.


Unban[edit]

GoodDay's site-ban is suspended on the following terms: -
  • For the period of one year after unblock, if GoodDay violates any user conduct policies at any time, any uninvolved administrator may restore the ban. Furthermore, if GoodDay is given any legitimate block by an administrator during the period, the ban will be restored.

This condition will be posted to GoodDay's user talk page (at which point he will be unable to remove them for one month, so that they are clearly visible to any editors who views his talk page during his transition back to contributing). The condition will also be announced at the "WT:BASC" Wikipedia page, and a link to it will be included in the block/unblock log for the account.

A beer for you![edit]

Export hell seidel steiner.png In celebration of your return and my retirement from WP. Sorry it has taken awhile to welcome you back! Strength & Honor, old friend! Raul17 (talk) 03:20, 27 May 2014 (UTC)
If you're retiring due to frustration with Wikipedia? I suggest you don't. Look at me, I'm still here :) GoodDay (talk) 03:38, 27 May 2014 (UTC)
Difficult to keep biting my tongue! The past year has been trying. Raul17 (talk) 09:43, 28 May 2014 (UTC)
The best solution for Wiki-stress, is cutting down on Wiki-time. In my case, I was too prolific. GoodDay (talk) 09:58, 28 May 2014 (UTC)
That is a good ideal. Since European football, hockey and basketball are about over, I could cut back on my quality time here! I guess I do have a bad case of WP-burnout! Raul17 (talk) 22:59, 31 May 2014 (UTC)

Please be careful[edit]

I noticed that there's a bit of a disagreement over the simple capitalization of the word president. I like you, so please don't get yourself into a position that you can't get out of again. Personally, I don't know who is right just yet, but let the discussion run it's course. Good luck. JOJ Hutton 01:26, 3 June 2014 (UTC)

I'm putting those articles back the way they were. I don't understand why John Adams was/is being made different from the others, bu I'm walking away from it. GoodDay (talk) 01:29, 3 June 2014 (UTC)
Good for you. It's not worth it in the end.JOJ Hutton 01:49, 3 June 2014 (UTC)
Exactly ;) GoodDay (talk) 02:04, 3 June 2014 (UTC)

Preventing a thread from being archived[edit]

Just a tip: have a look at User:MiszaBot/Archive HowTo#Delaying or preventing archiving of particular threads to see how to keep a particular thread from being archived. isaacl (talk) 17:04, 13 June 2014 (UTC)

Thanks, Isaacl. GoodDay (talk) 17:12, 13 June 2014 (UTC)

Just a thought[edit]

Re: Brian Gionta and the Habs. Unless it is blatant vandalism, it is sometimes not a bad idea to let a minor edit like that stand for a while, let the dust settle, then go back and make corrections in a few hours if necessary. Getting into edit wars and stressing yourself out seems to be somewhat counterproductive. Resolute 17:22, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

It's rather moot, now. He's just signed with the Sabres :) GoodDay (talk) 17:23, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

Alternate captains[edit]

It is premature to be listing the alternate captains for the upcoming NHL season. There is no guarantee that the "A" will be retained by the player who wore it last season, and most teams will not announce their alternate captains until the start of the regular season. Dolovis (talk) 16:02, 12 July 2014 (UTC)

Seen them listed on the other 2014-15 NHL team season articles, so figured it wouldn't be harmful for all of them. TBH, neither the captaincies or alternate captaincies of any teams are certain for next season. GoodDay (talk) 22:13, 12 July 2014 (UTC)
I've deleted the alternates from those teams which currently have no captain, as any of the previous alternates 'might' be named a captain in 2014-15. GoodDay (talk) 23:12, 12 July 2014 (UTC)
