Wil Wheaton photo discussion[edit]

Hi. Can you offer your opinion in the consensus subthread of this discussion? Thanks. Nightscream (talk) 18:06, 9 May 2014 (UTC)

Gone?[edit]

Did you get tired of the whole shebang? I wish you well whatever you're doing. Bishonen | talk 21:59, 12 May 2014 (UTC).

To paraphrase Mark Twain, the reports of my departure have been greatly exaggerated. Well, they would be exaggerated if there had been any! Truth is, I just don't have time anymore to get sucked in by my watchlist, however much I trim it, let alone deal with the POV-pushing hypocrites, sociopathic trolls, and sundry dramah purveyors that haunt this site. However, like a bad penny I'll turn up again, probably in a few weeks when some RL projects are completed and more of my time is my own again. But thank you so much for asking . . . it's nice when somebody notices one is gone! It did occur to me that Bishzilla had a special sanctuary reserved for me, but I've been too busy even to go there. What exactly are the check-in procedures, anyway? Rivertorch (talk) 21:12, 17 May 2014 (UTC)
Well, as you know, I'd just email you. Because of our email exchanges, I pretty much figured that some of your above explanation is why you haven't been editing lately. But I was a bit worried about you. I've been meaning to reply to your latest email to me. Flyer22 (talk) 21:16, 17 May 2014 (UTC)
As for check-in procedures, you could do what WP:Dummy edit states and use a dummy edit to provide "proof of activity from time to time [because you do not] wish to contribute but [do] not want to be seen as entirely inactive (such an edit is normally made to [your] own user or user talk page)." Flyer22 (talk) 21:22, 17 May 2014 (UTC)
The procedure for self-requested pocketings is described on the pocket page: essentially, you apply on the talkpage. You'll find plenty of crazed creatures there to chat to! Welcome! Note that Bishonen's Saturday class in Cake Appreciation is in recess, but feel free to access the well-stocked cake fridge at any time. Bishonen | talk 22:03, 17 May 2014 (UTC).
All right, I put in a word with Bishzilla on River's behalf. Flyer, my good twin says not to worry. If 'zilla pocket have WiFi he'll email you one of these days. Rivertorch's Evil Twin (talk) 14:04, 18 May 2014 (UTC)

Potential COI[edit]

Please see edits made by Kfernlund on Frederick Jackson Turner. To me they seem like a potential COI. --Rsrikanth05 (talk) 19:42, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

One edit, and yes it does look COI-ish. Someone apparently uninvolved added it in again. Don't worry, be happy. Rivertorch's Evil Twin (talk) 03:22, 3 July 2014 (UTC)
But if worry is your middle name and happy is just a distant memory, I know a place where if troubles don't quite melt like lemon drops at least nepenthe is sold over the counter. My good twin tells me that one's editing skills get rusty there, and it's a bit lonely, and he's getting a trifle concerned about taking advantage of the hospitality of his host . . . but he's not quite ready to dive back into the turbulent waters. Pray the kind beast be patient. Rivertorch's Evil Twin (talk) 03:55, 3 July 2014 (UTC)
