You left me a message, in which you said that I am vandalising wikipedia and you said that I also vadalised Abdul Ali Mazari artical.Listen I never visited that Abdul Ali Mazari artical before and never edited or changed any word from it! Don not do this kind of warning again!

Yes you did edit the Bdul Ali Mazari article. For evidence take a look at this.--†Sir James Paul† 19:12, 17 June 2007 (UTC)


Hey, thanks so much for the barnstar you awarded me for anti-vandalism, I very much appreciate your generosity! I'll keep up the good work! The Rambling Man 20:18, 17 June 2007 (UTC)

What are you saying? I did not do anything wrong to the Days of our Lives article! Please remove your comment. 23:12, 17 June 2007 (UTC)

Being this is a good faith edit, there is no need for your rudeness.

my RFA[edit]

Thank you for supporting my RFA. I hope I will live up to your expectation. Let me know if you need any help, or I make any mistake. --ChoChoPK (球球PK) (talk | contrib) 23:44, 17 June 2007 (UTC)


i do not understand how is is not good what is wrong with it

No, my edit was not vandalism. It is my talk page and I don't need a pointless message saying "Welcome to Wikipedia" when I've been using Wikipedia for nearly 3 years now. So if I want to blank my own talk page, it is of no consequence to you. Stop reverting it.


the first time i edited dwyane wade's article, i had a typo, and it made it an external link, which someone undid.

i realized it a minute later, and fixed it. it had been pointing to his favorite movie as the page "boomerang" -- about the wooden tool. i changed it to point to boomerang_(film), which has since been changed back.

i don't see why it was changed back, as i did improve the article, fixing a broken link.

alright, thanks.

UPDATE Ironically, my post was just vandalized. :)

I would appreciate an answer![edit]

Please respond to my comments regarding the use of Liberation versus Invasion regarding Iraq. Just a summary of what my point is :

Words have meaning. Words the MSM uses that are demeaning

and discouraging and what should replace them are:

Wrong "Invasion" - Correct " liberation" (Remember the Public Law 105-338 the Iraq Liberation Act of 1998. It wasn't called the Iraq Invasion Act!) Wrong "invaders" - Correct "liberators" Wrong: Insurgents - Correct " thugs", Wrong "freedom fighters" - Correct "barbarians". Your totally biased use of negative terms like above certainly shows you talk the talk but you definitely don't walk the talk! Send me your responsed to

Sir, that is your POV and there is no room for peoples POV at wikipedia. We are an encyclopedia, not a blog. If you believe that the words should be changed to what you want them to say, bring it up on the talk page. If they agree with you, then it can be changed, if they do not, then it can not be changed. Have a nice week and God bless:). --†Sir James Paul† 02:38, 19 June 2007 (UTC)

Blanking one's talk page isn't vandalism[edit]

As you indicated here. Discussion page vandalism is is one type of vandalism, but a user's own talk page is specifically excluded from that definition.--Chaser - T 07:02, 19 June 2007 (UTC)

There is an edit war going on at Fred_Thompson. I have added some information sourced to a major newspaper but Thompson's supporters seem determined to keep it out. I don't know what's the right course of action usually taken under these circumstances but a page lock with the information in might be a good idea. --JGoldwater 18:32, 20 June 2007 (UTC)

First of all, do not edit war. Edit warring does not help, it only causes stress. I have made that mistake before, so I know it does not help. I have not looked at the nature of your edits to the Fred Thompson article but policy says that bio's of living people says that article must be sourced with reliable, verifiable resources, must be NPOV, and must not have original research. If your edits do not meet all of these things, then it can not be in the article. To verify what I said, you can take a look at WP:BLP. I hope I helped. Have a nice week and God bless:)--†Sir James Paul† 02:17, 21 June 2007 (UTC)

Shoeless Joe Jackson[edit]

You're giving orders to God? That's fairly brassy. Anyway, the issue with that article is over Tecmobowl's personal link whose purpose is to sell baseball cards. He and others want it to stay, I and others don't think it belongs. I don't know what else to say about it. Baseball Bugs 09:30, 22 June 2007 (UTC)

Worse in what way? It always comes back to what he wants, and the rest of us be damned. Baseball Bugs 08:35, 27 June 2007 (UTC)
You're right. Do I have your permission to delete your followup to my comment, as part of deleting my comment? Or, you may do it yourself, if you want. Baseball Bugs 09:04, 27 June 2007 (UTC)
No, I mean on the Shoeless Joe Jackson talk page. Tecmo has been sulking since the admins slapped down his request for "arbitration" against the admin Irishguy, so maybe I could zap my needlessly inflammatory comments (and the responses) before he decides to get back on. I know he won't be happy in any case, since an IP address reverted him on his pet article Tecmo Super Bowl, which is where he gets his user ID from, I presume. Please note that, the opposite of Tecmo, I never delete comments from my own talk page, other than outright vandalism (which is rare), until I do an archive, as per the guidelines. (Speaking of which, I just did an archive, as the page was getting lengthy) That also saves me from having to write essays explaining my behavior, as Tecmo did recently on his own talk page. Baseball Bugs 09:11, 27 June 2007 (UTC)
Done. I let Mondegreen's comments stand, as it's her place to delete them, or not. And now I'll take the page off my watch list again. (It auto-updates the "watch" flag when I do an update.) Baseball Bugs 09:18, 27 June 2007 (UTC)

another thank you[edit]

You seem to have alot of "thank you" notes here. Well, here's another one. Thanks for reverting my Talk Page. Jru Gordon 09:31, 22 June 2007 (UTC)


Thank you for letting me know. Actually I was not aware that I was involved in a Medcab request for that article. It appears someone has signed me up for it without letting me know. Lsi john 11:31, 22 June 2007 (UTC)

I've removed the article from my watchlist. It's obvious to me that there will be no compromise and hence no resolution. I was unaware that a mediation had been requested and 'one' single link is certainly not worth the time and energy that has been spent on it. I felt (and still do) that the link is reasonable and adds value to the article, but I've never been interested in 'fighting' to keep it in the article. There are simply much better things to do with our time.
I appreciate your efforts and hope that we meet again under other conditions. Best Regards. Peace.Lsi john 13:01, 6 July 2007 (UTC)

Thank you X 100[edit]

Thank you very much for supporting my RfA, which closed successfully yesterday... W00t! I hope to be a great admin (and editor) and I'm sure you can tell that my use of a large, boldfaced, capital "T" and a big checkmark image in this generic "thank you" template that I swiped from some other user's Talk Page that I totally mean business! If you need anything in the future or if you see that I've done something incorrectly, please come to my Talk Page and let me know. So now I've got a bunch of reading to do.... see you around! - eo 13:31, 22 June 2007 (UTC)

User page[edit]

Thanks for responding. If it is my own talk page (communication between me and someone else), I don't understand why it's rude to remove it... as the issue at hand had been covered and rectified. For me personally; I find it quite confusing being there. When I logon and see I have new messages I want to be able to see those before anything else, instead of the small talk I had with somebody two weeks ago. Especially talk that I will likely never need to re-read again in the future, as I understand what the other user was trying to explain to me. Rotting9


Hi! I saw you're using Twinkle. I wanted to too, so I pasted that js-stuff in my monobook.js, but I cant see any difference!! How do I revert edits and warn users using it?? I have Firefox. — H92 (t · c · no) 22:03, 24 June 2007 (UTC)

Thank you very much! But how do I get started using it? — H92 (t · c · no) 22:13, 24 June 2007 (UTC)
NM, I found out. Is it possible to edit the automatic edit summary? How do i disable the function that puts all the articles i reverted into my watchlist?! — H92 (t · c · no) 22:22, 24 June 2007 (UTC)

editing Dan Fox[edit]

Hi, I have been trying to edit my page on here since someone in my former band has left me slander and racist remarks. it is in the last paragraph please get back to me I would like my whole page taking down asap! thank you

Re: Barnstar[edit]

Thank you very much for that - its nice to know one is appreciated - most of the feedback I get for carrying out admin tasks is less pleasant. For example, I am apparently an Orwellian liar according to this charming editor (he put a similar sentiment less politely in a email he sent me) :-).

I missed your RfA the other day - sorry about the outcome of that (you seem to have had quite a rough ride). I hope you're not too disheartened and might give it another go sometime in the future. Some of our best admins didn't pass they RfAs the first time. What I've seen of your editing here has been first-rate but I guess we all need to be careful when editing about topics we feel strongly about. Hopefully next time it'll work out for you.

I am Korean Canadian. If you Google the term uriginal and you will find the term is only being used (really being promoted) on Wikipedia and Urban Dictionary. Also, I find the term offensive because it is racist. I would like the whole article to be scrapped. Cheers,

...started with the usual contentiousness with Tecmobowl, and accelerated into a 1-week suspension for him, thanks to 3RR violations along with solid evidence that he had used a sockpuppet to evade a block a couple of weeks ago. I want to apologize to you for being kind of cross with you this morning. That guy has really been on my nerves, as well as on the nerves of others. You have no idea what we've been putting up with, from that character. I always hold out the hope that someone will see reason and improve their behavior on their own. But some folks are just too thick-header or egoistic for redemption. Hopefully I myself am not that far gone. Be good. :) Baseball Bugs 22:52, 27 June 2007 (UTC)

Hi Sir james paul, It still amazes me that otherwise "anonymous" editors take the time to place !votes and comments on RfAs. Whilst I would have normally thanked you at the time of you leaving your message, the importance of my not appearing to be canvassing prevented me from so doing. Now that everything has progressed successfully I can finally thank you. I intend to uphold a style of good adminship and will welcome your further comments at any time in the future, even if they are in the form of admonishment.
