Well, I come back to a not so nice surprise! Firstly, I'd like to apologise my comments in an Edit Summary in Chemo (comics). Yes, it went a tad far and I am sorry. I am surprised that such an editor is apparently allowed to sprinkle edits like this across Wikipedia when after a check of his summary reveals that at least 80% are superfluous and only degrade the quality of the articles. That said, the comic articles seem to be guided by a Team Leader (J Greb) who appears on the case with able assistance from (Nightscream). I'm sure that can be sorted out.

Secondly, please note that I only edited Chemo and Metal Men as I have an interest in colour, hence my editing of Purple. I have no other real interest in comics and in fact avoid those articles as there appears to be a great deal of argument about what is relevant. Ironically, I did use the model applied by Asgardian and Tenebrae in writing those articles.

This brings to my final point: I am not Asgardian or anyone else. Has this person used the IP address I am currently on? I fluctuate between this and a huge public library network used by hundreds of people. I spoke with the Head Librarian about this and she said there had been issues in the past but most were beyond her control (such as person apparently wanting to stay back after hours and use a computer for Wikipedia and another who was banned for uploaded video responses to someone else's videos on Youtube). So unfortunately this is a case of mistaken identity.

I am happy to leave off editing comic articles, but feel it would be very unfair to be penalised as one's true identity cannot be established. I've done some research and apparently IP adresses cannot be permanently blocked so there may be some chance I can come back from this (a new username would also be fine if an issue).

Can someone advise as to how to proceed? I really wish I could speak with someone from Wikipedia in person as I have so many questions! Thanks PurpleHeartEditor (talk) 23:36, 8 December 2011 (UTC)

Decline reason:

This editor had been recognized through behaviour and then brought to my attention. Even a cursory inspection showed sufficient cause to checkuser, and the technical evidence was entirely in support of this editor being Asgardian; I see no reason to unblock at this time.

Further appeals should be made by email to the Arbitration Committee as outlined here — Coren (talk) 14:53, 6 January 2012 (UTC)


If you want to make any further unblock requests, please read the guide to appealing blocks first and then use the {{unblock}} template again. If you make too many unconvincing or disruptive unblock requests, you may be prevented from editing this page until your block has expired.

I have sent a message to the blocking admin, due to the nature of the block. -- Luk talk 09:49, 6 January 2012 (UTC)
Even without seeing the checkuser results, I have found a striking amount of evidence that you are the same person as, and if checkuser connects you as well then we must start wondering how much coincidence can reasonably be attributed to chance. However, since the blocking admin has been consulted, it makes sense to await their response. JamesBWatson (talk) 14:33, 6 January 2012 (UTC)

Consider applying to the arbitration committee to revoke this block. Abhijay (☎ Talk) (✐ Deeds) 14:50, 6 January 2012 (UTC)

Thanks. Will consider as everyone has missed something, but not overly concerned. Take care.

Please also take a look at Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Asgardian/Archive#06_January_2012 if anyone is still considering an unblocking...Folken de Fanel (talk) 04:38, 16 January 2012 (UTC)
PurpleHeartEditor, we did disagree on many issues in the past, and I think you are not Asgardian. I would recommend you consider the WP:STANDARDOFFER. Abhijay What did I do this time? 03:14, 13 March 2012 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (File:KrakenRum.jpg)

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:KrakenRum.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Hazard-Bot (talk) 04:22, 13 June 2012 (UTC)
