Long time[edit]

Hey pen! How's it going? Are you alright? Still here? Jaguar 19:50, 3 May 2013 (UTC)

Of course he is. They are soon to introduce a new admin power whereby an administrator questioning the action of a peon, can prevent the peon making any further edits until the peon acknowledges a message as written by the administrator.
No block will need to be made, just by coincidence the peon will not be able to edit until they accept the message as dictated by the administrator.
I'm sure this will help to make sure that... something? --Demiurge1000 (talk) 02:11, 4 May 2013 (UTC)

I am still here Jaguar, and apparently still an imminent threat to the project :D

I miss the orange band across the top of the page for new messages, that was cool. There was like a pavlovs doggie thingy where you saw the orange and thought WooHoo !!!! I guess someone didn't like that either. (they thought, nobody loves me, so I'll make it so nobody else is loved either, or so they thought)

It would be so cool if people could be *Forced* into not leaving en.wiki, then, as soon as en.wiki forked, every good editor would be sucked out from here and arrive in the new project all at once, like sci-fi or comedy, there are so many sketches that fit what I'm thinking of, but as it is, it's hard to go and find them all.

People like this far too much

Jag, you should come to commons ! on commons, they call 'articles' 'files', and you can destroy HEAPS of them, they even have things called 'mass deletions', I've done a few, it's fun. :) although my time there is better spent on valuable additions like polandball and insect porn, with their undeniable educational value. Lemme show you some.

Don't know what this is, there are articles in 90 languages, but there is not one in English to explain it (shrug)
get yourself a passport and visit this article

Very important work there, but in some ways it suffers a few of the same problems, but in a way less so, because there is a occasionally-functioning de-sysop process (possibly), I think it must have been made out of fear that non-Americans might become sysops and need fixing ;) not like on en.wiki where everyone is assumed to be a fat redneck, (hmm, I should go read the official bias page, I seem to have a fuzzy recollection of some of the statistics)

I'm glad that you and Pesky are still about, I can't visit her page easily, but it is good to know that she is ok and still kickin. I've been tinkering with my programming knowledge-base in the areas of robotics and so forth, useful things for a fork. I think wikialpha is cool, but I don't know that they could handle all of wiki if I asked PALZ to copy it. I like PALZ, I mean, I know he hates me and is trying to kill me, but honestly I get that a lot, and he does a good job of fixing up those space station articles, so it balances itself out in the end I guess. PLUS there is that corny movie Tron, which I have a copy of the newer one (must get the old one) and there is that nerdy 'tron guy' I know, but maybe that's cause it IS a cult movie, maybe people just don't know it yet. Hmmm, I kindof like it, the idealism, the god awful shallow villains, the power of the creator, the whole cyberworld thing, hmm, whistful thinking.

Peons makes me think of warcraft II, you click on the Orc Peon too many times, he tells you 'my tummy fells funny' and then burps loud and long. Penyulap 05:12, 4 May 2013 (UTC) 05:12, 4 May 2013 (UTC)

Hi Penyulap. I completely agree with everything you said, and whatever decision you make, I'll support. Yeah I noticed that they got rid of the big orange band for new messages, I loved that! It was one of those things that made Wikipedia great, but all good things must come to an end eventually. I guess somebody thought it was time to a change and now they introduced in a new crappy notifications system.
I think it's about time you should be unblocked, Wikipedia will be so much better with you around and editing. But then again this project is more or less doomed and too politically correct for people like us! Yes me and Pesky are still here, and Dr. Blofeld... and a handful of other good editors too, but I think we're all that's left! I haven't been on Wikipedia for months, I can't create anything anymore, and I can't expand on anything either without other people interfering...
Commons? I'll check it out. I uploaded a few pics on there two years ago but I suppose people have got things like Instagram now where people can just look and mess about with photos in a more simplistic way. Yes it would be great if all the good editors could get transported from here to a new Wiki, a place where we could be our own bosses! Who knows? It might actually happen one day!
I'm still here if you need me. :D Jaguar 19:36, 11 May 2013 (UTC)

Just to let you know..[edit]

You have been mentioned at Wikipedia:Missing Wikipedians. XOttawahitech (talk) 19:01, 17 May 2013 (UTC)

thank you, that is very kind of you, and that is a heart wrenching list for so many reasons. When I look at the date I think wow, has it been that long ? Then again, I look at the ISS article and it looks more like I've been gone for a decade or more :D that article inspires me to make a space wiki, to bring alive all the fantastic ideas that so many friends had/have for the article, but I have to work towards the bigger goal of a better place for everyone, and so that's what I try to do. Penyulap 18:16, 18 May 2013 (UTC)

For your caring work[edit]

Two coins for the boatman.gif

I think Ottawahitech doesn't know of this award (or may not like it), perhaps a talkpage angel could let him know ? Penyulap 05:34, 22 Jun 2013 (UTC) 05:34, 22 June 2013 (UTC)

Thanks Thom. Penyulap 19:04, 23 Jun 2013 (UTC)

Inactivity[edit]

Hi there, and during my editing, I've come to notice you, and I just can't understand why there is talk page access but is blocked, is there anything admins have to decide on? Zince34' 16:14, 21 June 2013 (UTC)

And, why are you blocked anyway, for 326 days? Zince34' 16:14, 21 June 2013 (UTC)

Because he's a very naughty boy. Thom2002 (talk) 21:11, 21 June 2013 (UTC)
What Thom said :) Penyulap 05:03, 22 Jun 2013 (UTC)
Well, then, why talkpage access? Zince34' 06:55, 22 June 2013 (UTC)
Why not? Talkpage access during a block is the default option. It's removing a blocked user's talkpage access that needs a reason. Bishonen | talk 16:26, 23 June 2013 (UTC).
So, even after being nuked, you are still a indirect member of WP:AWARDS, right? Zince34' 04:46, 24 June 2013 (UTC)

Bishzilla appreciate great artwork[edit]

The Fairybread Barnstar.gif

Thank you very much little user for creating excellent Shakespeare Bigfoot image so little MONGO could receive well-deserved award! bishzilla ROARR!! 16:19, 23 June 2013 (UTC).

Fine artwork indeed Penyulap! Exceptionally excellent. I have enshrined the artwork and the award atop my userpage and there it will reside in perpetuity.--MONGO 17:18, 23 June 2013 (UTC)
Thank you, you are both so kind. You're most welcome. Penyulap 17:38, 23 Jun 2013 (UTC)

That reminded me about that scratchy noise from the cupboard, I found this strange contraption, I wonder who may wish to take care of it ? (the hamsters are well-trained). I think this is the most important award especially for protecting the entire community. Penyulap 18:52, 23 Jun 2013 (UTC)

I wonder if a talkpage angel could place this award on Bishonen's talkpage for me. thank you. Penyulap 07:20, 24 Jun 2013 (UTC)
Pen, I'm dumbfounded, that's the most magnificent barnstar, nobody could deserve it. Thank you very much. I guess there aren't so many angels around this time of year…. the poor little hamsters are getting all worn out… [Decisively:] I guess I'll have to fetch it myself! [/me makes off with the hamster-powered fairybread star. On second thoughts, leaves Penyulap a copy of his masterpiece.] Bishonen | talk 20:58, 24 June 2013 (UTC).
I believe nobody could be more-so. You're welcome. There are still countless angels, and migration may be the issue. You should see how many there are on commons ! I think the fewer angels left here on en.wiki are spreading thinner every year. Those camsters are intriguing though, I too thought they would tire, but after watching them without a break for 19 hours when I first put them there, all I can surmise is that they rest when we're not looking and not listening for the squeak squeak squeak that can be heard by those of extra-ordinary hearing. Penyulap 08:35, 25 Jun 2013 (UTC)
A night sky of barnstars for that stellar apparatus, as I noted in this edit summary of a comment on a page where you can't even post. I hope there is a way for you to get unblocked and dance the 10 billion year messy and messier dance with the stars again. That barnstar is amazing. ---Sluzzelin talk 01:08, 26 June 2013 (UTC)


Thank you Sluzzelin, that is humbling praise indeed which leaves me almost speechless. I am glad you enjoy it together with us. Penyulap 11:00, 26 Jun 2013 (UTC)

Pen, I'm getting e-mail complaints here that the camsters have changed the barnstar landscape and put ordinary barnstars' noses out of joint: "No other barnstar even matters anymore. Penyulap has ruined "normal" barnstars for the rest of us." :-) Bishonen | talk 22:07, 26 June 2013 (UTC).
That is a problem I didn't expect. I spruced up some userboxes which is ironic as I don't use userboxes, except two, one of which points out that I don't like userboxes which is ironic because it's a userbox pointing out that it is ironic I don't like them. Maybe it's a sign of things to come, because if I can, I'll do for online encyclopaedias what I have done for userboxes and barnstars. Totally pimp them, much to the amusement of the amused. Penyulap 08:45, 27 Jun 2013 (UTC)
I saw the barnstar on Bishonen's talkpage, is it OK if I give it to people (acknowledging it to you) please? Thanks, Matty.007 16:13, 13 October 2013 (UTC)

Just to let you know[edit]

You have been mentioned at Wikipedia_talk:Missing_Wikipedians#Can_blocked_editors_be_listed_as_missing.3F.XOttawahitech (talk) 13:46, 29 June 2013 (UTC)

thank you for the note. Penyulap 15:13, 29 Jun 2013 (UTC)
Is there anything you want me to say on your behalf, Pen? Jaguar 18:12, 29 June 2013 (UTC)
No thank you Jaguar, I'm fine. If you like, you could hunt down my last three? barnstars. I don't think they'll make it to my userpage without an angels help. That would be lovely. Penyulap 06:12, 30 Jun 2013 (UTC) 06:12, 30 June 2013 (UTC)
That's fine Penyulap, I'll add those last three barnstars to your userpage. Regards Jaguar 16:57, 1 July 2013 (UTC)

Whoops, sorry I mean these ones. Two of the ones you put there were for other people. These two go just before the 4 '-' characters and the '"If you bat ..."

Also I think they were hard to find, because the archives last eighteen entries are erroneous, the bot couldn't manage it properly and repeatedly put the same stuff in. Penyulap 16:35, 2 Jul 2013 (UTC) 16:35, 2 July 2013 (UTC)

Penyulap, after everything you have been through, you deserve one of these! Jaguar 18:07, 7 August 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know Pen! And sorry for the late reply. Jaguar 15:41, 25 July 2013 (UTC)

Just to let you know[edit]

You have been mentioned at Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Editor_Retention#Blocking_of_participants_in_this_wikiproject.3F. XOttawahitech (talk) 00:30, 6 August 2013 (UTC)

Oh yes, I remember Denis Brown mentioning he started that project mainly because of myself, in fact I was second to join. My name was erased by an office employee, but not as an office action. Thank you for letting me know.
By the way, I'm sorry Jaguar placed the barnstar I made for you onto my own page, I was wanting to get the new three added there, but I didn't specify which three. Doesn't matter though. Penyulap 14:25, 6 Aug 2013 (UTC)

Requesting your opinion on a photo[edit]

Hi. We really need your opinion on which of these photos would make the best Infobox portrait for the Rick Remender article. Could you please offer your opinion in that discussion? The most recent subsection of that discussion is here, so you can just chime in there if you don't want to read the whole thread. I really appreciate it. Thanks. Nightscream (talk) 17:11, 7 August 2013 (UTC)

well my account has been blocked for more than a year, so that makes it difficult to respond to your request at that page. Penyulap 19:04, 7 Aug 2013 (UTC)
I can copy/paste your input from here if you wish.--Canoe1967 (talk) 19:26, 7 August 2013 (UTC)
There are I think more pressing image-related problems, such as the non-free rationale being used on the OPSEK image, there are any number of free images that have been created for space stations such as the Chinese space station. However, most comments in most places are not appropriate whilst a few dictators keep me blocked. People can ask me on commons. Penyulap 20:41, 7 Aug 2013 (UTC)

Bringing you the season's explosives[edit]

well, given my occasional associations with evil organisations, I'm game to accept gifts from evil twins, Thank you !!

Warning[edit]

This is your one and only warning. I like your user page a lot, so I'm going to tell my friends it's mine. I'll tell my enemies too, because then they'll like me and I'll be able to say (truthfully, for the first time in my life) that I'm a person without enemies. Not even Jesus was able to say that, but then he never told anyone your user page was his. He never even saw it. Comcast was crap in Galilee. Writegeist (talk) 07:00, 25 February 2014 (UTC)

I thought it a mess, as it hasn't had the cleaner through in quite some time. Then I saw yours, which has too much MSG, but the other one is not the same. Penyulap 05:54, 26 Feb 2014 (UTC)
