August 2014[edit]

Stop icon This is your only warning; if you vandalize Wikipedia again, as you did at 2014 FIFA World Cup Final, you may be blocked from editing without further notice. This, plus an ensuing edit war https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=2014_FIFA_World_Cup_Final&diff=616834759&oldid=616834719Smuckola (Email) (Talk) 11:22, 11 August 2014 (UTC)

Late or not, Smuckola is correct in warning you of this. That's a terrible edit, and your comment on his talk page wasn't any better. Cut it out or you'll be blocked. Sergecross73 msg me 04:36, 30 August 2014 (UTC)
Oh, I'm sorry? What was this? Was it the "Bra71l" edit? Yeah, that was pretty great.
I hadn't noticed this post. Almost irrelevant given how late you "warned" me. That you'd come marching in that much later with an internet tough guy facade - and use the big red pathetic warning icon is hilarious. I'd advise that if you cannot take a joke, let go of the intensity you feel about it when so much time has passed. It's better for your health to avoid stress. Now, I'm sure there's people who did shit in September you forgot to warn and you certainly don't wish to forget about them! Keep it up and good luck with your next badge, champ.

Userpage[edit]

I wouldn't recommend putting "I vandalize things from time to time" on your userpage. Vandalism is not tolerated at all on Wikipedia, and should a request go out for you to be sitebanned, voters will not look on that kindly as it shows you're keen to continue. I suppose if you do it with another account or an IP, no one'll know (not that I'm advocating that, necessarily), but for the love of Frith don't admit to it. Tezero (talk) 07:07, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

*yawn*
....and? Why would someone go to the extent of using another IP just to vandalize wikipedia? Pretty redundant if I do say so myself. A million things happen on a regular basis in this world and with some of them people like to have a little bit of fun, knowing that this site will go back to its normal, mundane state in a short matter of time due to the nature of how it works. As such, I would hope that those around with a sense of humor will see that the quality of an editor is reflected not by their talk page, but rather by their contributions. If said contributions are largely helpful and their periodic vandalism is the kind so insignificant you might put quotes around it, I would hope people would use their brain and...well, be human about it, heh.
I suppose, in a sense, that's what the majority of vandalism on wikipedia is (when it is not unfunny, bigoted nonsense) - an attempt to balance things out on a site where users are often blocked from editing without a single real comment expressed from one user to another: a totally mechanical exchange, lifeless and devoid of feeling, through the convenience of templates.
If such a vote is ever called, I will not worry and presume that those who push the buttons are reasonable and have good judgement. Frith be with you, Tezero. Swim Jonse (talk) 07:25, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
I too wish this site's populace was better at eyeing the big picture. (And personally, I don't think petty vandalism is nearly as bad as pages that people actually read and enjoy being deleted on notability grounds.) But we have to deal with Wikipedia how it is. If you're okay with vandalizing once in a while, I can't stop you. But if you don't want to get banned, I really discourage you from doing it on this account, and for everyone's convenience I'd rather you didn't do it at all. Tezero (talk) 07:31, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
I'm not okay with vandalism. I mean, if I were it wouldn't be any fun. More seriously, I'm NEVER okay with vandalism, whenever some non-registered editor comes along and drops a tremendous load of disinformation, sometimes laced with prejudice, and incessantly reverts it to try and make it stand. That's an abhorrent practice.
I understand your concerns though. I also understand risks and wouldn't put something like that there if I were too concerned. In actuality, I have not touched my user page in a while. It's been some time since I put that in there, primarily as a joke but also because in the event I do something that constitutes vandalism, I'm not going to hide behind a string of numbers or refuse to own up to it, pretending I did nothing. That behavior would go against the entire reason I support this encyclopedia and its structure over any other, as it naturally allows for a greater amount of honesty and neutrality by design. I have modified my user page to make the joke more apparent.
Though who knows, I may vandalize my user page some time in the future. Maybe, maybe so. Nah. Yeah. Nah. Yeah. Nah. Yeah. Guess there's no way to know. Anyways, thanks for being a person and not a robot. Swim Jonse (talk) 08:05, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

Depression Quest DYK[edit]

Just to let you know that I've submitted Depression Quest for DYK, and I've named you as one of the co-authors - see Template:Did you know nominations/Depression Quest. Best — Mr. Stradivarius ♪ talk ♪ 15:45, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

Thank you, but I really have no interest to participate in that article whatsoever at this point, for obvious reasons (if you've spent the last 15 years of your life as a tremendous fan of video games). Nothing personal. Swim Jonse (talk) 08:52, 29 August 2014 (UTC)

For the talk pages? Really?

I've said what I need to but I find this whole thing overly irrational in the way it's being handled.
