I'm no longer an administrator, so if you're looking for someone to undelete something I deleted, you'd be better off asking at WP:REFUND

User:WayneRay back with a new account...briefly
Greetings, my user:WayneRay page was deleted for supposed vandalism etc. I have been incarcirated for three years and had instructed my daughter to edit and update my main page and delete the previous vandalisms. She was not internet savvy as I had thought so her mistakes were considered the errors of which you speak. Can my user page be replaced? I can use this new one but have to edit all the updated links WayneScottRay (talk) 18:24, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

In light of your block message at the latter account, I have indefinitely blocked the new account—and I wanted to make sure you were aware of the actions I took against the new account. —C.Fred (talk) 18:33, 19 August 2014 (UTC) was created today and began editing the
Hello everyone! We hope you have all been having a great summer!
As we all know, the recent GAN Backlog Drives have not had any big impact on the backlog. Because of that, me (Dom497), Figureskatingfan, and TheQ Editor have worked on an idea that could possibly finally put a dent into the massive backlog. Now, I will admit, the idea isn't entirely ours as we have took the general idea of the WikiCup and brought it over to WikiProject Good Articles. But anyways, here's what we have in mind:
For all of you that do not know what the WikiCup is, it is an annual competition between several editors to see who can get the most Good Articles, Featured Article's, Did You Know's, etc. Based of this, we propose to you the GA Cup. This competition will only focus on reviewing Good articles.
For more info on the proposal, click here. As a FYI, the proposal page is not what the final product will look like (if you do go ahead with this idea). It will look very similar to WikiCup's page(s).
The discussion for the proposal will take place here. Please let us know if you are interested, have any concerns, things to consider, etc.

WikiProject Good Articles - GA Cup
WikiProject Good articles is holding a new competition, the GA Cup, from October 1, 2014 - March 28, 2015. The Cup will be based on reviewing Good article nominations; for each review, points will be awarded with bonuses for older nominations, longer articles and comprehensive reviews. All participants will start off in one group and the highest scoring participants will go through to the second round. At the moment six rounds are planned, but this may change based on participant numbers.
Some of you may ask: what is the purpose for a competition of this type? Currently, there is a backlog of about 500 unreviewed Good article nominations, almost an all time high. It is our hope that we can decrease the backlog in a fun way, through friendly competition.
Everyone is welcome to join; new and old editors! Sign-ups will be open until October 15, 2014 so sign-up now!
If you have any questions, take a look at the FAQ page and/or contact one of the four judges.
Cheers from, , and .

First of all, let me know what I do wrong at any stage of the process here. I'm brand spanking new to editing wikipedia and I'm probably making all kinds of errors.
I read your page about deletion and as far as I can tell I'm going about this correctly. In 2009 you deleted the page for Massive (music software) for "No demonstration of notability independent of the company that produces the product; no third party sourcing." I don't know if Massive was as well known in 2009 as it is today, but it's phenomenally important now, as far as EDM production goes. Quite a few major bass music producer have publicly acknowledged using it, and its sound was very influential.

Just let me know what to do next and I'll give it a shot.
- Sounds reasonable to me, but I'm no longer part of any admin or leadership role on Wikipedia--I cannot actually undelete anything at this point. You can wait until someone who is reads this here, or you can ask again at WP:REFUND. Cheers, Jclemens (talk) 20:47, 20 September 2014 (UTC)
Notification: RfC on Game of Thrones and chapter-to-episode statements
The RfC: Is Westeros.org a suitable source for this content? was closed with the result that Westeros.org is reliable but that whether the disputed text was valuable enough to include should be addressed separately. The closing editor recommended that all participants in the RfC and related RSN discussion be informed that such a discussion was under way:
If any of you wish to make a statement on this matter, you are welcome to do so and your contribution would be greatly appreciated. If any of you would prefer to stay away from this dispute, I think we can all get that too. Darkfrog24 (talk) 16:08, 28 September 2014 (UTC)
Maybe stop doing that
Your post in Oathkeeper was a bit attack-y, don't you think? I find it amazing that you jump down my throat over a matter that I did not start, over content that should not be in the article, instead of focusing on the one person who fought tooth and nail against no less than three different consensus' and RfCs. I think that, at best, you might want to rephrase your snarky post about my Wikipedia experience. And I am saying please. - Jack Sebastian (talk) 17:08, 1 October 2014 (UTC)
