A beer for you![edit]

Export hell seidel steiner.png No worries, Niteshift--I was happy to back you up there (that was easy anyway, since you were right). Man, some people need to get out more, so they don't have so many words left when they get here. Cheers! Drmies (talk) 22:48, 6 December 2011 (UTC)


Thank you, fine by me. Let's move on. ~ Kimelea (talk) 21:12, 27 March 2012 (UTC)

  • Who doesn't love free beer. :) Niteshift36 (talk) 16:29, 9 November 2012 (UTC)
  • Tell you what, I had the opposite happen tonight. Old neighbor comes by, there's a bottle of champagne, she and Mrs. Drmies claim to be tired etc; by the time they're gone and I'm thinking about finishing that bottle, it's empty after all. Plus they were disrespecting the Clint Eastwood movie I was watching, tsk tsk. Also, I made a promise: to not respond at ANI. Hey, we're all buddy-buddy now, with all this stuff going on, but weren't we in a fight a couple of months ago? Where you were wrong, of course. Later! Drmies (talk) 05:34, 10 November 2012 (UTC)

For working with me on Dave Aronberg article. You've supported him, I was dead set against his most recent bid for office, but we worked together to make the article encyclopedic rather than looking like a press release. ...William 17:45, 9 November 2012 (UTC)

The Good Shephard[edit]

I suppose you think that's funny. It took me all day to transcribe that trash from my TV screen. :) When I wrote that stuff I was a young and foolish 63 year old with a new toy. I am now 64 and a little wiser and I.Won't.Do.It.Again.(promise). That article isn't deserving of all the attention it gets anyhow. The reason for all the caps is that that was how it appeared on the TV. However, there should be a way to cite the credits from a film, or even scenes in it. Could you point me in the right direction on that? If I change my mind after all when I know how to do it and put the music back in I hope you won't come after me with your nightstick! Please accept this with a good heart, I don't think much of stalkers either. :) Jodosma (talk) 22:37, 6 March 2013 (UTC)

Apologies (Re RSN)[edit]

Hi. I'd like to apologise for my behaviour in the recent RSN on Hazel Kirk. I think that my behaviour went over the line on multiple occasions in the way that I addressed you and your arguments. I don't mean this from the perspective of an online civility "policy", but just in terms of how one should normally address another human being. Normally I find it easy enough to deescalate in those kinds of situations; unfortunately I didn't in this instance. Sorry again for my remarks, including my initial one, many of which were unfair, rude and condescending. FiachraByrne (talk) 21:47, 29 March 2013 (UTC)

Something up your alley....maybe[edit]

The Dallas Police Department article's misconduct section could use serious cleanup. I worked on the killing of Santos Rodriguez section but its probably imperfect because this is not my expertise. Thought you might want to give the article a try....William 23:28, 5 October 2013 (UTC)

bb'ing boxes[edit]

Hi; I see you're one of the only active people on WP:Bodybuilding and showed up of course on the blacklisting bulletin board...... I was just fixing up the Tommi Thorvildsen article and his (Tommi's) inclusion of stats/facts including his motto makes me wonder if there's an "infobox athlete" or if we could concoct an "infobox bodybuilder" that we could come up with for stuff like that. Also in all cases, to make allowances re COI/AUTO for them to be able to cite their own websites; his own website is used as a citation about it, right off its main page is a product page so I'm going to adjust it to his "Om oss" (about us) page so it doesn't get treated like spam. Which is is, but self-spam is part of the bb game anyway huh? Strikes me that anything in that bio that's not in other sites is useful, depite the self-citation interdictions usual in Wikipedia.Skookum1 (talk) 22:16, 10 December 2013 (UTC)

Seems maybe there should be a bodybuilder subsection on WP:ATHLETE too.Skookum1 (talk) 22:20, 10 December 2013 (UTC)
  • I'm not sure why it got listed as a spam site in the first place. I don't really know anything about infoboxes etc. You might be interested in this discussion in 2011 about including bodybuilders in ATHLETE [1]. The problem is, most of the people with an opinion don't really know anything about the sport. Niteshift36 (talk) 22:31, 10 December 2013 (UTC)

Request, please[edit]

It's possible we're talking past each other at WP:BLPN. I think it might be helpful to talk specifically. Yesterday, I made this edit. I tried very hard to follow the sources as precisely as possible, to state only the facts, exactly as they were reported and to avoid coloring my reporting in any way. This is why it took me all day to research and write three paragraphs. Montanabw then completely revised it. I don't think he made it one bit better. May I ask your opinion, please? Msnicki (talk) 14:41, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

  • My opinion is that both entries put in too much info. The incident does merit inclusion. But at this point, it's an allegation. It should be 3-4 sentences at best. Talking about possible penalties etc isn't called for yet. If and when an investigation determines there was plagiarism, then it can be expanded. You've got almost as much material on this allegation as there is on TWO proven incidents by Joe Biden. Niteshift36 (talk) 15:51, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

Large value United States robberies[edit]

The list of robberies and robbers is pages long, covering many countries. This addition to the "See Also" is done to put quick focus and easy link to the small number of large US robberies that you deleted in July from three of these articles. This addresses your edit comment at that time that they were unsourced, by making them a much simpler "See Also" rather than an extensive section in each article. Jmg38 (talk) 02:11, 19 November 2014 (UTC)

  • There is a simpler way that doesn't litter the section with redundant links. I made the piped link go the section on the US. Niteshift36 (talk) 03:01, 19 November 2014 (UTC)
  • Good point. Addressed the super long US Robbery List by adding sub-headings, then cut my earlier "See Also"s to a single entry for large robberies (makes the section leaner/cleaner), which quickly compares these similar big heists. Thanks for the extra idea and push. Jmg38 (talk) 04:37, 19 November 2014 (UTC)
  • Please note that there is a difference between robbery and theft. Robbery is taking something by force or threat of force. Using electronics means to divert funds is not a robbery. Also, I removed another one where securities were missing, but there was no robbery. Let's keep the list accurate. Niteshift36 (talk) 17:13, 19 November 2014 (UTC)

Speedy deletion help[edit]

Niteshift36 - You have just marked redirect pages for globalvcard and global-fleet for speedy deletion. These redirects were certainly not attempts to 'game the search engines' as stated. This is simply an attempt to redirect brand names owned by CSI Enterprises to a single article. I did not feel there was enough material to support three separate articles, yet users that may search for either of these names will be looking for the same company. You can see all three references within the main article, as well as the corporate websites provided. If there is better way of handling this, I would appreciate your suggestions. Thank you. KristiGNA (talk) 18:35, 29 November 2014 (UTC)

  • Kristi, they are gaming the search engines and InGage knows this. Of course there isn't material for separate articles because they're not notable on their own. These terms are very unlikely as search terms in an encyclopedia. On Google, perhaps, but not an encyclopedia. But creating your redirects essentially does create an article and Wikipedia articles rank high in Google returns. Then you redirect those trademark terms to that PR piece on the company. Re-writing that, and the article on InGage, to make them more encyclopedic and less sales pitch, is now on my list. You might want to review WP:NOPAY, since you're editing on behalf of a company for a client. Niteshift36 (talk) 19:31, 29 November 2014 (UTC)

Celebrity sex tape[edit]

My apologies over that mishap. I copied the source from the Rob Lowe article and just assumed that it was correct given that its a BLP article. I have added proper sourcing to both his article and this one as well as posting a comment on the Talk page as you requested. Regards, --Scalhotrod (Talk) ☮ღ☺ 17:32, 2 December 2014 (UTC)
