Hello. I'm here to talk to you about said user. The person still actively uses both this account and semi-dynamic IPs. I'm addressing you directly about this situation instead of opening a full-on sockpuppet investigation for two reasons: you've dealt with him/her before, and I opened a sockpuppet case about this in the past and don't want to be too trigger-happy to open another one because of unrelated past sockpuppet investigation experiences. Some of the recently used IPs involved will be listed below, in chronological order. The person is still performing the behavior that got him/her in trouble in the past, and doesn't appear to be interested in being productive here; likewise activity has been prevalent at Andrew McNair (actor) (history). What are your thoughts about this, and is there something you'd want to do about this?

- I took another look and the kana does say "kyoudai". I thought it was an error but it checks out elsewhere, so please disregard the above. I've restored the kyoudai. JoshuSasori (talk) 23:21, 2 December 2012 (UTC)
Wikipedia Day Celebration and Mini-Conference in NYC Saturday Feb 23
You are invited to celebrate Wikipedia Day and the 12th anniversary (!) of the founding of the site at Wikipedia Day NYC on Saturday February 23, 2013 at New York University; sign up for Wikipedia Day NYC here, or at bit.ly/wikidaynyu. Newcomers are very welcome! Bring your friends and colleagues!
If you remember back when I made this report at SPI based on information obtained from Thekohser's Freelancer account. It was related to requested whitewashing of the Aburizal Bakrie to remove all criticism of him because of his upcoming presidential nomination. Today, Thekohser made this comment where he essentially admits to my suspicions being correct. Furthermore, at the SPI, the proxies for Thamrin2 and Antasari were blocked. However, Thamrin2 has still been editing the article and he has continued to whitewash the article of criticism. I am pretty much 100% sure that this is Thekohser. Since you were involved in the SPI back then, I wanted to let you know directly. What should be done? SilverserenC 00:03, 15 January 2013 (UTC)
Revisit eeggs.com as source?
I saw your comment about the site at RSN as not RS in 2010. I researched the site a bit more deeply, and requested a revisit at RSN in 2011. There was one positive response, which went further, determining that eeggs.com had been cited as a source by multiple independent RS, but also deemed it standalone notable. I notice you did not counterargue at the time. There's now a toxic drawn-out head-down-plowing deletionist raid going on at Talk:Easter egg (media) (and yes, I bare my fangs, to McGeddon's dismay). It would be helpful if you'd weigh in here, if not there, or even pull the 2011 RSN discussion out of archive for extended response. I disagree with your 2010 analysis as "user submitted" and "self published", because the user submissions are suggestions and are vetted, and the site has a reputation and advertising motive not to publish false or unverified claims. Further, the site was published as a book in the late 90s, but is out of print. --Lexein (talk) 09:12, 25 January 2013 (UTC)
- FYI eeggs.com is at RSN again, and has one response so far. --Lexein (talk) 11:47, 27 January 2013 (UTC)
- Oh dear. Yes, the CU data is extremely stale, but I think you could get that one based on geolocation of the IP and behavior. I've not been a CU for awhile, so open a case over there. — HelloAnnyong (say whaaat?!) 02:04, 16 February 2013 (UTC)
per a lengthy AN discussion here, I have unblocked the account. Personally I would have preferred to have seen that you had been notified of the discussion to begin with, but also note that it was 2 years ago and the editor's only block. Either way, I'm letting you know now. — 21:01, 8 April 2013 (UTC)
Wikipedia Meetup NYC this Sunday April 14

Wool series fanfiction
I don't know why you removed the Wool series Fanfiction section. Check the books on Amazon: they DO exist and they DO meet with a certain level of success. Is there something I must do to make the section legit for Wikipedia?
By the way, I put it back online, but that was before I realized you were an administrator on Wiki, I didn't mean to disrespect your decision, I thought it was a malevolent action.
- Just existing - or even being published - does not meet the standard for inclusion. The Wool page should not be turned into just a link farm for all Wool fanfics; in fact, the fanfics shouldn't be listed at all. Here's a comparison: it's well known that Fifty Shades of Grey started as a Twilight fanfic, but if you go to the Twilight page, there's no mention at all about Fifty Shades. Same sort of thing here. Per WP:V, everything on Wikipedia has to be verifiable by other sources; no original research is allowed. To that end, a lot of what was on the page was OR in some form by using the Amazon lists to draw conclusions and that sort of thing.
- Also, the tone of what was there was pretty unencyclopedic. Terms like 'Woolmaster' and 'Woolites' and whatnot are fan terms and don't belong in an encyclopedic article. "You will find what the Woolmaster had to say" is very casual and isn't appropriate. As to linking to Howey's comments on Kindle Worlds, it's irrelevant on the page about Wool since he doesn't actually mention the series in the post at all. Also, it's not usable as a reference since it's a blog post (and falls under WP:PRIMARY). — HelloAnnyong (say whaaat?!) 18:01, 1 June 2013 (UTC)
In that logfile, if you are unable to reference a discussion about that entry on MediaWiki talk:Spam-blacklist or Wikipedia:WikiProject Spam, or a COIbot report, or contribution histories, or any other evidence, then you should probably remove the entry and explore alternative solutions like blocking or page protection.
Adding the site to the revert-list of User:XLinkBot is also a good alternative to blacklisting in cases where the site can conceivably be linked in appropriate cases, but should be reverted most of the time (an example would be blogspot.com links). ~Amatulić (talk) 04:04, 9 June 2013 (UTC)
- Sorry about that, it's been awhile since I last added something to the blacklist. No specific issue on the MediaWiki talkpage, but I was able to reference a page where there's been a lot of vandalism. I can reference individual diffs, but I figured the blacklist would get blown out. — HelloAnnyong (say whaaat?!) 04:08, 9 June 2013 (UTC)
Reason for reverting changes to link on Epitaph page?
- Yes, and it's still linkspam. — HelloAnnyong (say whaaat?!) 02:23, 14 June 2013 (UTC)
NYC Wiki-Picnic: Saturday June 22
|Great American Wiknic NYC at Prospect Park|
|You are invited to the Great American Wiknic NYC in Brooklyn's green and lovely Prospect Park, on this Saturday June 22! We would love to see you there, so sign up and bring something fun for the potluck :) -- User:Pharos (talk)|
You've got mail!
Hi, I noticed that you added rowspans to the Alison Brie filmography, so I thought I'd let you know that the reason why some filmography tables don't have rowspans is because the editors on those articles follow what it says at WP:FILMOGRAPHY: "Please avoid rowspan as it is a significant WP:Accessibility issue..." And, it's up to you about what you want to do. It doesn't really matter that much to me. --Musdan77 (talk) 05:25, 25 August 2013 (UTC)
