  • I will try to fix any image problems as soon as possible if a bot/editor leaves me a notice about an image and then revert the bot/editor's edit to acknowledge it as resolved. I like to keep things neat and focused on discussions, not line after line of image problems to take care of.
    • For transparency, that is all that I remove from my talk page completely outside of vandalism. Every other topic will be archived as appropriate, though not on a set schedule (usually every three or six months depending on how much is on the page).
  • I do carry rollback privileges, so if you need any help and I'm on, you can ask me here. However, not I will not get into edit wars and only use rollback for basic vandalism repair.
  • I do carry file moving privileges, so if you accidentally upload a logo or picture as "EJNEDC_128929_21.jpg", feel free to ask me to name it to something a bit more logical.
  • I also work on the conversation style of 'respond on your talk page, you respond here, I'll respond there', etc.
  • Please, if you can, try to list template notices under one heading for my convenience, rather than template after template if there are multiple notices. It makes acknowledgement much easier.
  • No profanity please. You can make a point just as easily without laying down an F-bomb here. I reserve the right to refactor your comment to remove profanity; I don't like going to my talk page and having to skim through swear words over and over again.
  • If you're here to leave some kind of attack on my page because of a vandalism rollback, reversion or some other kind of finding, I'm not exactly quaking that you're going to 'hack' my page or that I'm whatever choice obscenity you'd like to call me; it's getting reverted by me or another patrolling editor anyways. Before you leave a message, ask yourself; is it worth the effort to add a strike on the way to a block?

Informal note[edit]

Hey, I notice that you have HighBeam access and you seem to have a few topicons. That being said, if you are interested, I've created {{Wikipedia:HighBeam/Topicon}}. No reply to this message is necessary (and I won't see it unless you ping me), just wanted to let you know it was available. Face-smile.svg Happy editing! — {{U|Technical 13}} (etc) 23:51, 11 July 2014 (UTC)

Honey Baked Ham[edit]

I left a message with Dennis Brown and he did not respond. Honey Baked Ham is a type of cooked Ham, that is what most people are expecting not a company with a misspelled name. I can assure you that nobody except a few people in North America have ever heard of HoneyBaked Ham Inc. Unibond (talk) 00:32, 13 July 2014 (UTC)

    • Sorry but I just don't get it. Pizza doesn't redirect to Dr. Oetker and Hamburger doesn't redirect to McDonalds. So why should a generic recipe redirect to one specific company and not for example [1] or [[2]] or [[3]] or the 1000s of others who make it Unibond (talk) 12:44, 13 July 2014 (UTC)

Xploration Station/Nation[edit]

This editor, Ttll213, despite the two out of the the three sources indicate that the programming block is Xploration Nation, doesn't seem to care (I even edit to it indicate there is alternative name). One of them is even the PR indirectly from the production co. He is also reversing all edit that match sources (and adding the unsourced commentary) at Xploration Nation, Steve Rotfeld Productions and Template:KidsTVBlocksUSA. I am not sure that X Nation or Rotfeld Production should have an article (notability), so any suggestion where to convene a discussion? --Spshu (talk) 13:40, 14 July 2014 (UTC)

Complaint about your removals[edit]

I don't trust dumb*** rival Wikipedians like you removing my edits. You should be ashamed of yourself. It p****d me off! You don't deserve to be a Wikipedian. I'm mad at you removing my edit about Sam and Cat cancellation on 2014 in American Television. Spencer H. Karter (talk) 01:00, 18 July 2014 (UTC) comment redacted slightly for profanity. Nate (chatter) 01:30, 18 July 2014 (UTC)

Now you're censoring the a word and p word I hate Censorship and this make me mad! What on earth happen to Freedom of Speech? I AM COMPLAINING TO YOU, I know that WP:CIVIL stuff and I'm a good person at heart and I'm like a protagonist. But I hate censorship! >:( Spencer H. Karter (talk) 01:36, 18 July 2014 (UTC)

My talk page, my right. I'm not the owner of this talkpage but I reserve the right to keep things clean. Nate (chatter) 01:37, 18 July 2014 (UTC)

You just hate freedom of speech and being a CENSORSHIP LOVER! Very sickening to me! Sorry about my complaints. Spencer H. Karter (talk) 01:39, 18 July 2014 (UTC)

I don't hate freedom of speech, I just don't like looking at profanity when I check my talk page. I didn't change anything about your comment except for that and acknowledged your complaint. Nate (chatter) 01:42, 18 July 2014 (UTC)

I'm sorry about that. :( Spencer H. Karter (talk) 01:44, 18 July 2014 (UTC)

Re: 'check local listings'[edit]

I was indeed being bold, but as far as WP:NOTADVICE is concerned, asking readers to "check local listings" and "consult your local cable provider" is certainly not appropriate nor encyclopedic. I think a discussion is worth having as to whether the presence of individual current channel numbers for cable companies on channel pages is even appropriate. The separate lists of current company channel lineups were found to have failed WP:NOTDIR, and I don't see why that information on each channel article is any different. -- Wikipedical (talk) 04:49, 15 August 2014 (UTC)


Hi, Mrschimpf. If the childish vandalism bothers you, I can semiprotect this page. Bishonen | talk 01:02, 19 August 2014 (UTC).

Done, plus the current IP is blocked. Bishonen | talk 01:09, 19 August 2014 (UTC).


Heya, I don't think this user is here to contribute constructively, and based on their edits at Happy Tree Friends, where they seem to reinstate bollox content submitted by Fidelis ofoajoku suggests to me that they are sketch and are likely a sock. I've attempted to ask the user a few times if they can explain that edit and others, but gawrsh, they just aren't interested in replying, which only enhances my suspicion. There's also another spring-up account from Happy Tree Friends, "My Wiki Marc" who might be worth looking at. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 04:41, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

Jewelry Television[edit]

unlike the weather channel, that doesn't have to pay to have their signal placed on all those 100million homes, jewelry television, just like all tv home shopping networks have to pay to have their signal placed onto cable systems and satellite providers throughout the US. and right now, Jtv's live broadcast is only on 80million households since that is the total amount of cable & satellite coverage that they have purchased. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Fredrockjtv (talkcontribs) 20:22, 5 September 2014 (UTC)

you are taking out valuable information for the viewers of this page to help them find Jtv, so please do not take out this valuable information to allow every viewer of this page to find Jtv on the Internet or on their tv. thank you! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Fredrockjtv (talkcontribs) 20:53, 5 September 2014 (UTC)

where in the world are you getting your information? and what are you basing all these changes on? it's interesting that the times for the affiliate information for each of those channels were placed into wiki a long time ago(and not by me), but you for some reason now find that it's important to make changes. and yet, when i pointed out that the weather does not pay for those 100million subs, you apparently forgot to mention that you were actually wrong on that matter and that Jtv actually only has 80million. so instead, in your most recent response you place "updated affiliate information" and subject related to the topic. do you even understand the broadcasting industry? and do you realize that most stations have to pay to be broadcast on cable & satellite providers? apparently you didn't. you made an educated decision based upon what you saw on the weather channel wiki page. i'm really glad you don't hold other responsibilities that could actually hurt individuals when all you are doing is assuming based upon your knowledge and what you see. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Fredrockjtv (talkcontribs) 22:10, 5 September 2014 (UTC)

first of all what is your definition of cable system? charter, comcast, time warner cable....then yes, Jtv is on ALL cable systems. are they on every local comcast station throughout the US, no. because you have to go to each local cable station to conduct a deal with them. so yes, Jtv is on all Cable systems. are they on all the comcast cable subscriber's homes, no. because they are not on all comcast cable stations throughout the US.

and concerning the weather channel, which all you did was just look at their information on their wiki page, and then apply your logic to every station including Jtv and concluded that the information stated on Jtv's wiki page was wrong. and the disruption that you are talking about with directv and the weather channel, was about how much directv was willing to pay for the weather channel's content. and since you have all the answers concerning the area of cable, satellite and home shopping channels, please check out this website for the actual correct information about what happened concerning directv & the weather channel.... "DirecTV dropped TWC on January 14. The channel wanted a penny increase in the price DirecTV pays for it. (It averages 13 cents per subscriber per month across pay TV systems, according to SNL Kagan data.)" don't think for one minute that the weather channels pays directv to have their content broadcasted on their satellite. if you really think that, then ESPN pays directv to have their signal broadcast on their satellite also, which is absurd. i personal don't appreciation how you are able to inflict you narrow way of thinking onto a company that has done nothing wrong to you in anyway, but you feel that it's your moral duty to clean up this company's wikipedia site and basically call the writer of this information a lier. and yet, you are the one with the wrong information and yet, you still find it necessary to degrade me and any feeble attempt that i make to help the readers of wikipedia better understand this company.
