I'm pissed off with Wikimedia, Wikipedia and wikis in general for the moment. Contact me via email if at all, or don't bother.

...[edit]

I guess I'll be getting out of the way, then. I'm sorry to have inconvenienced you all so much by trying to be productive and helpful. robchurch | talk 15:00, 3 July 2006 (UTC)

Huh?[edit]

What happened? —Nightstallion (?) 12:55, 4 July 2006 (UTC)

You've always been around on Wikipedia, and I've never seen any conflicts between you and others. Please come back! --M@thwiz2020 16:22, 5 July 2006 (UTC)

Dear Rob[edit]

I know you may not see this in a while, dear Rob, but in case you do, I want you to know that we care for you, and we wish to see you back with us as soon as possible. Please, take good care and relax in your wikibreak, and hurry back!
We miss you, dear Rob!

Seeya[edit]

Good luck in your future endeavors. --Cyde↔Weys 15:29, 5 July 2006 (UTC)

You[edit]

relax

have been very nice to me, you helped me everytime I had a question, even it when it was a stupid one. You've always had a great sense of humor. We will miss you. Leon ¿! 14:48, 7 July 2006 (UTC)

Addendum to "Here is my attack"[edit]

Well, I hace confessed to vandalizing for the past several months, and for permanently scarring my reputation. I want to state now that Tex's contention that I haven't left is entirely false, I only came back on the 23rd to voice my opinion against RobChurch, and his RfA. Well, my attack: I am sorry for being the CIyde vandal and for my attacks on John Reid. I am sorry that I came here, stressing myself, and others out. To further emphasize this, I did create an account with the intention of it being constructive after a three month long meltdown. Hopefully, I will be able to edit constructively, and I am sorry for all the trouble I cause. Yes, people reform, and to be honest, the point of the vandalism was to attract attention to what I see as incivility, and the reasons several of my friends have left here. But vandalism is vandalism, so I better quit before I get in trouble. I am sorry I was ever apart of the project. I DONT want to be a Brian Chase. But, at least I did edit here constructively for a year and three months before I went haywire.εγκυκλοπαίδεια*14:34, 31 May 2006 (UTC)


Addendum: It is my wish to make it clear that I want to return to the encyclopedia, and I am asking that my block may be lifted so I can continue my work here. I sincerely apologize for my actions.εγκυκλοπαίδεια*16:46, 7 July 2006 (UTC)

Special:Shortpages[edit]

Thanks for fixing Special:Shortpages w/r/t page existence. Is it possible to have the report run mire often - say, daily, instead of once in four days as now? - CrazyRougeian talk/email 15:50, 11 July 2006 (UTC)


Eek![edit]

Get out of the way? Why do you need to get out of the way? Do you realize how much of Wikipedia functions around you?????? A LOT OF WIKIPEDIA...

We neeeeeeeeeeeeed you... --The Prophet Wizard of the Crayon Cake

Don't be ridiculous

Image:Tickle me elmo.jpg WE love you!!!!!!!!!!!! --The Prophet Wizard of the Crayon Cake 01:04, 12 July 2006 (UTC)

We NEED you![edit]

Rob, without you, we haven't been able to do any more technology reports at the Signpost. Come back soon, or at least leave us some instructions on how to do the technology reports. Editor88 04:31, 27 July 2006 (UTC)

We know how to do the technology reports it's just we don't know any changes. The instructions are simple, all we have to do is find some weekly software changes from another updater such as User:Brion Vibber or User:Tim Starling. He provided us with the changes; actully you can ask him why he left at test.wikipedia.org, (I just did) The publisher, Ral315 doesn't know where the software infromation is at; but we could ask Tim or Brion for instructions. Carmelapple 15:48, 13 August 2006 (UTC)

Please come back[edit]

Although I was never a good friend with you (or a friend at all, really), I miss you on Wikipedia. Please consider coming back! 1ne 05:07, 2 August 2006 (UTC) (formerly SushiGeek)

Alright[edit]

Apparently there are users here that like working with you but you have choosen to leave because someone pissed you off?!? Or you like watching people "crying" on your "user's gravestone" or something?!? Either way that's kinda childish. Consider this quote from that Tom Cruise unicorn movie - "What is light without darkness?". When you get mature enough to understand its meaning then feel free to come back. -- Boris 09:27, 3 August 2006 (UTC)

You don't seem to be too informed on the situation, so don't make assumptions. 86.133.212.163 15:37, 8 August 2006 (UTC)
And are you, random IP? 1ne 08:44, 28 August 2006 (UTC)
Random IP never said they did. I agree with random IP and think that Boris-es words are kinda mean. — Preceding unsigned comment added by PatxiG (talkcontribs) 05:07, 16 February 2011 (UTC)

Pleeeasse???[edit]

C'mon RobChurch pal! Come baaack! IRC is not the same w/o you! ;_; CableModem --Steve-o 09:15, 9 August 2006 (UTC)

Hiya Robchurch. This is Andy123 from the IRC. We are really missing you out there. Please come back. --Nearly Headless Nick 16:49, 16 August 2006 (UTC)

Sorry to see you go[edit]

Hey Robchurch, I'm really sorry to see that you're leaving Wikipedia, or at least stepping away for a time. I hope it's the latter, and that you will eventually return, as all your contributions here are most appreciated. Whatever has happened, I hope things are able to relax a bit and not stress you out as much, for that's no good at all. Good luck with whatever you decide to do, I'll always remember you "Well, why the fuck not" vote on my RfA, which cracked me up. All the best, -- Natalya 14:40, 11 August 2006 (UTC)

All the best. —Encephalon 13:01, 5 September 2006 (UTC)

Fans club[edit]

Hey Rob, being serious: I'm into your fan club. why haven't you ever posted a pic? Greetings, and come back if that pleases you --83.61.171.95 15:34, 26 August 2006 (UTC)

Hey[edit]

Oh! You're back.

Well, I hope you decide to resume editing. DS 21:34, 5 December 2006 (UTC)

Welcome back! It's a pleasant suprise to see you return. Hope that you decide to stick around. Mike (Talk) 04:01, 6 December 2006 (UTC)

Doing something about the ridiculous date autoformatting/linking mess[edit]

Dear Rob—you may be interested in putting your name to, or at least commenting on this new push at [1] to get the developers to create a parallel syntax that separates autoformatting and linking functions. IMV, it would go a long way towards fixing the untidy blueing of trivial chronological items, and would probably calm the nastiness between the anti- and pro-linking factions in the project. The proposal is to retain the existing function, to reduce the risk of objection from pro-linkers. Tony 14:36, 9 December 2006 (UTC)

An Apology...[edit]

Sorry about the matter on #Wikipedia..

I obviosuly shouldn't even attempt to use IRC when tired.

BTW the string "^ShakespeareFan(..)$" should work :-) ShakespeareFan00 21:21, 16 December 2006 (UTC)

DEFAULTSORT[edit]

This is a great idea! There are cases, however, where in one particular category you want the article sorted differently- will a piped link override the DEFAULTSORT command? --Elipongo (Talk|contribs) 16:25, 19 January 2007 (UTC)

Yes. 164.11.204.56 19:03, 21 January 2007 (UTC)

Automated message to bot owners[edit]

As a result of discussion on the village pump and mailing list, bots are now allowed to edit up to 15 times per minute. The following is the new text regarding bot edit rates from Wikipedia:Bot Policy:

Until new bots are accepted they should wait 30-60 seconds between edits, so as to not clog the recent changes list and user watchlists. After being accepted and a bureaucrat has marked them as a bot, they can edit at a much faster pace. Bots doing non-urgent tasks should edit approximately once every ten seconds, while bots who would benefit from faster editing may edit approximately once every every four seconds.

Also, to eliminate the need to spam the bot talk pages, please add Wikipedia:Bot owners' noticeboard to your watchlist. Future messages which affect bot owners will be posted there. Thank you. --Mets501 04:50, 22 February 2007 (UTC)

bugzilla 3311[edit]

Hi - Any chance I can interest you in bugzilla:3311 (in particular, the last addendum, that I added)? This relates to a discussion I had with RobertG at WT:CFD#Propose tagging with both and expanding use of Cat redirects overall. Redirected categories have sucked for a long time. I think making this one change makes it almost perfect. -- Rick Block (talk) 03:09, 28 February 2007 (UTC)

Cookies[edit]

A couple of cookies for you. Thank you!

Speedy deletion of Template:User fahd[edit]

A tag has been placed on Template:User fahd requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section T3 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a deprecated or orphaned template. After seven days, if it is still unused and the speedy deletion tag has not been removed, the template will be deleted.

If the template is intended to be substituted, please feel free to remove the speedy deletion tag and please consider putting a note on the template's page indicating that it is substituted so as to avoid any future mistakes (<noinclude>{{transclusionless}}</noinclude>).

Bot activity[edit]

I was going over the list of bots and noticed that DisambigBot (talk · contribs) has not edited in a very long time. Is this bot still active and if not, would you object to it being de-flagged?

Orphaned non-free media (Image:A-Prefects-Uncle-Novel.png)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:A-Prefects-Uncle-Novel.png. 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 'image' 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 "Image" 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. BJBot (talk) 12:05, 9 May 2008 (UTC)

Little context in Nose (horseracing)[edit]

Information icon.svg

Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on Nose (horseracing), by another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. The tag claims that it should be speedily deleted because Nose (horseracing) is very short providing little or no context to the reader. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles.

To contest the tagging and request that administrators wait before possibly deleting Nose (horseracing), please affix the template {{hangon}} to the page, and put a note on its talk page. If the article has already been deleted, see the advice and instructions at WP:WMD. Feel free to contact the bot operator if you have any questions about this or any problems with this bot, bearing in mind that this bot is only informing you of the nomination for speedy deletion; it does not perform any nominations or deletions itself.

Orphaned non-free image File:TheWallAlbum.png[edit]

Disputed non-free use rationale for File:Bun E Carlos.jpg[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thank you for uploading File:Bun E Carlos.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this file on Wikipedia may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content. This can be corrected by going to the file description page and adding or clarifying the reason why the file qualifies under this policy. Adding and completing one of the templates available from Wikipedia:Non-free use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your file is in compliance with Wikipedia policy. Please be aware that a non-free use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for files used under the non-free content policy require both a copyright tag and a non-free use rationale.

If it is determined that the file does not qualify under the non-free content policy, it might be deleted by an administrator within a few days in accordance with our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions, please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you. Spike Wilbury (talk) 14:58, 5 October 2010 (UTC)

Notice of change[edit]

Hello. You are receiving this message because of a recent change to the administrator policy that alters what you were told at the time of your desysopping. The effect of the change is that you will not longer be able to request restoration of the tools because of your prior inactivity. You have until December 30, 2012 to request restoration or else the policy will prevent you from doing so in the future; you would need to seek a new WP:RFA. Until December 30, you can file a request at WP:BN for review by the crats. Thank you. MBisanz talk 04:22, 3 December 2012 (UTC)
