RE question on vandals[edit]

Hello fellow Lonaowna! :) Yes, there is a solution to the vandalism problem. You can report persistent vandals to Wikipedia:Administrator intervention against vandalism. But before reporting, the user must have been given enough warnings on their talkpage, escalating from the mildest to the strongest. To give warnings on the talkpage of the vandal, you can use the predefined templates {{subst:uw-vandalism1}}, {{subst:uw-vandalism2}}, {{subst:uw-vandalism3}} and {{subst:uw-vandalism4}} secuentially (you use first 1, then 2, then 3, then 4). After the fourth warning has been given, you can go to "Administrator intervention against vandalism" and say for example:

  • {{IPvandal|IP address}} vandalized after final warning ~~~~
  • {{Vandal|username}} vandalized after final warning ~~~~

You use IPvandal or Vandal depending on if the user is anonymous (e.g. or a registered user. You can find the complete list of warnings at Wikipedia:Template messages/User talk namespace. The list is huge but the most important messages are the "uw-vandalism" ones.

To summarize:

  • You find somebody vandalized a page. You post {{subst:uw-vandalism1|Article}} on their talkpage ("Article" is the name of the vandalized article).
  • The user continues to vandalize the same or other article(s). You post {{subst:uw-vandalism2|Article}} on their talkpage.
  • The user vandalizes again. You post {{subst:uw-vandalism3|Article}} on their talkpage.
  • The user continues vandalizing. You post {{subst:uw-vandalism4|Article}} on their talkpage.
  • The user vandalizes for the fifth time. You post a report to "Wikipedia:Administrator intervention against vandalism". An admin will come around to block him.

See for example the talkpage of a user that was warned several times, then a report was issued, and then the user was blocked: User_talk:

I hope all this helps you. Ask me again if you have doubts. --Anna Lincoln (talk) 09:12, 23 June 2009 (UTC)


hey, sorry about the links that redirected to the same page, I was trying to start a separate page for ExtUSB, but people seem to like having a ridiculously long page.

BF3 Wii U version[edit]

Any particular reason you decided to remove a section of the page? Muskeato 15:52, 10 October 2011 (UTC)

I'm sorry for not explaining. I thought this was not much more than speculation. I just reread the source and it looks like it's actually quite concrete about the Wii U. Looks like I misread it! I'm really sorry for removing the section without any further research. Lonaowna (talk) 16:22, 10 October 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of A-Trust[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on A-Trust requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about an organization or company, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, you can place a request here. Fiddle Faddle 22:19, 6 September 2013 (UTC)

(CrossFit) Thanks for kicking me in the butt[edit]

Thanks for having the courage to stand up and tell me that my references were crap. Sometimes it's difficult to be bold like that. The article has been significantly improved thanks to your tags. --WikiTryHardDieHard (talk) 02:44, 28 February 2014 (UTC)

Hi, thanks so much for your new references! They improve the article a lot. Sorry if I was a bit rude when removing the old ones, I didn't really look in to who placed them and I assumed it had been someone with a commercial incentive.
Thanks again for your work! Lonaowna (talk) 08:07, 28 February 2014 (UTC)
I completely understand. I must admit that at first I was a little offended, but creating a better Wikipedia is much more important than maintaining my ego. I think it's good to be blunt with each other when accuracy is on the line. --WikiTryHardDieHard (talk) 15:10, 28 February 2014 (UTC)
Couldn't agree more. Keep up the good work! Lonaowna (talk) 15:32, 28 February 2014 (UTC)
