Wikipedia Rollbacker.svg

Hi Roxy the dog. After reviewing your request for rollback, I have enabled rollback on your account. Keep in mind these things when going to use rollback:

  • Getting rollback is no more momentous than installing Twinkle.
  • Rollback should be used to revert clear cases of vandalism only, and not good faith edits.
  • Rollback should never be used to edit war.
  • If abused, rollback rights can be revoked.
  • Use common sense.

If you no longer want rollback, contact me and I'll remove it. Also, for some more information on how to use rollback, see Wikipedia:New admin school/Rollback (even though you're not an admin). I'm sure you'll do great with rollback, but feel free to leave me a message on my talk page if you run into troubles or have any questions about appropriate/inappropriate use of rollback. Thank you for helping to reduce vandalism. Happy editing! – Juliancolton | Talk 04:50, 25 June 2014 (UTC)

Legal Financing[edit]

Can you please explain how my revision to "legal financing" was not constructive? The previous reference was not available it was a 404 error. I located the PDF from the wayback machine, uploaded it and posted it; correcting the link on the subjects wikipedia page. The revision was extremely constructive as I simply fixed a broken link. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Kwfritts (talkcontribs) 02:19, 26 June 2014 (UTC)

You are correct, there was nothing wrong with your contribution, and I have self reverted my mistake. Sorry. -Roxy the dog (resonate) 05:28, 26 June 2014 (UTC) i wanna talk Roxy.

Why is a dog editing eikipedia? Also my edit concerning [Leroy Butler] is not at all a joke. we had someone who called in (I work in a call center) confirming he is in fact a computer hacker

PREVIOUS TECH NOTES PC Support Services (Level I) TT Joyce CB xxx-xxx-xxxx convinced that a pro-football player named "Leroy Butler" is hacking her computer — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:44, 27 June 2014 (UTC)

Dogs can be very effective wikipedia editors, thanks to modern technology. Even inanimate food objects can do great work. Personally, I died several years ago, but even that is no obstacle. We expect that editors follow our policies on verifiability, neutrality, and so on, regardless of whether they are human or alive. bobrayner (talk) 12:59, 28 June 2014 (UTC)

Acu page[edit]

The source is clearly outdated per WP:MEDRS. Good catch! See Talk:Acupuncture#This statement is more than five years old and is provided solely for historical purposes. QuackGuru (talk) 20:51, 28 June 2014 (UTC)

Clan MacIntyre[edit]

About what i did in:

Actually, i was translating the article, but it seems i pasted my translation in the wrong page. I'm so sorry, and thank you for correcting it. I'm translating it in a draft, but... apparently i "save the changes" in the wrong one.

) thank you.

A kitten for you![edit]

I appreciated this.

TopherDobson (talk) 18:30, 30 June 2014 (UTC)

Thanks, I'll have it roasted with some garlic and potatoes. Yum. ;) -Roxy the dog (resonate) 01:06, 1 July 2014 (UTC)


Leaving a leading space before an image (such as in this edit) can break word wrapping. If you used a tool to make this edit, please ensure that it does not have a bug introducing this. Happy editing, — xaosflux Talk 00:09, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

Nope, no leading spaces there! Oh, I see what you mean, I shall report it to the STiki dev team, when I'm sober and coherant. Happy editing. -Roxy the dog (resonate) 00:16, 1 July 2014 (UTC)
I looked at this a little closer, User:Xaosflux, and discovered that it was my own incompetence that led to the page formatting being broken, not anything wrong with STiki. I wanted to thank you for pointing it out to me. Thanks! -Roxy the dog (resonate) 15:50, 4 July 2014 (UTC)
No worries, just wanted to let you know, happy editing! — xaosflux Talk 16:21, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

Congratulations, Roxy the dog! You're receiving this barnstar because you recently crossed the 1,000 classification threshold using STiki. We thank you both for your contributions to Wikipedia at-large and your use of the tool. We hope you continue your ascent up the leaderboard and stay in touch at the talk page. Thank you and keep up the good work! West.andrew.g (developer) and Faizan 06:23, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

Ooooooooh!!! my first ever barnstar. Thank you. (but I didn't really do anything special) -Roxy the dog (resonate) 07:14, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

Not neutral?[edit]

re [1]: "Characterized" just seemed like slightly better prose, no ulterior motive. It's a synonym for "described", which is also neutral, and there's no subtle spin associated with it. [2][3] Could you elaborate? --Middle 8 (leave me alonetalk to meCOI?) 10:22, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

P.S. Seeking input here, at MOS talk. Forgot to mention above that I also liked the word because it's very close to "demarcate", which is exactly what people do when they classify things as pseudoscience. --Middle 8 (leave me alonetalk to meCOI?) 11:23, 4 July 2014 (UTC)
In context, I think my edit summary was perfectly clear and doesn't really need further elaboration. -Roxy the dog (resonate) 15:44, 4 July 2014 (UTC)
Alexbrn, who is good with this stuff, thought "describe/call" more direct [4] so I've tried that. [5] --Middle 8 (leave me alonetalk to meCOI?) 00:48, 5 July 2014 (UTC)

Discretionary Sanctions template[edit]

I know that. Because I used the template, I have indicated my awareness of the sanctions. I don't intend to edit-war or edit tendentiously on any BLPs or pseudo-scientific topics. I haven't touched the Arab-Israeli wars or Indian-Pakistani wars with a ten-foot pole, and don't expect to, because areas that have real wars always have too many edit wars. Point understood. Robert McClenon (talk) 02:22, 5 July 2014 (UTC)

I do hope you know that my point wasn't aimed at you in the slightest. -Roxy the dog (resonate) 14:22, 5 July 2014 (UTC)

I liked what you did there Invisible Barnstar[edit]

Invisible Barnstar.png The Invisible Barnstar
I noticed your recent response to a joke edit made by new user to Gerber Baby and was impressed by the message you left on that user's talk page. Is that your own wording or if there is a compendium of templates that give sane, friendly, brief explanations of frequent problem-edits? Thanks, please accept an invisible Barnstar, since barnstar-giving is another template-thingy I don't know how to use. HouseOfChange (talk) 13:04, 5 July 2014 (UTC)
It was just a standard message issued by the program STiki, which is intended to help fight vandalism on wikipedia. I've only been using it a week, but it seems to agree with me! -Roxy the dog (resonate) 14:21, 5 July 2014 (UTC)


Hey Roxy, when can we talk? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Superkid1214 (talkcontribs)

Whenever you want kid. Post a message here, don't forget to sign it with four tildes. -Roxy the dog (resonate) 00:14, 6 July 2014 (UTC) ok. I'm sorry for adding stuff to your entries. I wanted to share my knowledge. Which entry of yours can i add stuff to? User:Superkid1214 ( resonate) 00:?, 5 July 2014 ( UTC). Not very good w/ tildes, whatever tildes are.

Please don't[edit]

Comments like this are unhelpful. Please do not make them. --John (talk) 14:07, 6 July 2014 (UTC)

OK, but perhaps your time could have been better spent. -Roxy the dog (resonate) 17:13, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for your concern. It's worth my while when I can help a user keep their block log clean. --John (talk) 19:16, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
John, sincerely, thank you, I appreciate it. -Roxy the dog (resonate) 22:11, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
@John, Roxy the dog: -- John, thanks. Roxy, this (the last sentence) isn't helpful, and this (which is a response to my comment here) is grossly out of line, and such comments need to end now. --Middle 8 (leave me alonetalk to meCOI?) 08:15, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

Dean Radin[edit]

Perhaps you can talk to Josephson's about his concerns on the Dean Radin talk-page. I am too busy working on other articles to get involved in a debate with him but he want's the page improved. Some other people's suggestions would be useful. Goblin Face (talk) 20:44, 6 July 2014 (UTC)

I'll look, but must point out that I am not the intellectual match for Brian, far from it. -Roxy the dog (resonate) 22:21, 6 July 2014 (UTC)

i'm all curious[edit]

i'm all curious... why this? Jytdog (talk) 17:16, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

Oh dear me. I don't remember reverting, but I do remember reading that post. I've put it back, and hope you accept my apology. -Roxy the dog (resonate) 19:31, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
no biggie! so much goes on around here.. Jytdog (talk) 22:03, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
