My Style[edit]

I'm not sure what the official "name" for my style would be. I draw the line-art with pencil and ink, then I scan in and color the line-art using Adobe Photoshop.--Mr Fink (talk) 19:07, 20 April 2013 (UTC)

In Photoshop, I like to try and create textures by using different brushes and filter-work.--Mr Fink (talk) 19:08, 20 April 2013 (UTC)
Ok, thanks. :) Th4n3r (talk) 19:12, 20 April 2013 (UTC)

Stars and stripes?[edit]

I see you awarded me a barnstar!

The trouble is, I think you may have awarded the wrong one. You might have been looking for "carefully researched article" barnstar.

The trouble with being snarky is when you really don't know the subject or background, and there's that awful sound of an "oops". So let's be specific. Perhaps after a 9 year editing background, about 1/2 of that in NPOV page related areas, and having been a core author of our current NPOV policy approach/style itself in the distant past (not an easy page to get consensus on a rewrite), I suddenly decided to go to bat - for a dissolved company that hasn't existed since 2004, in an article that conveys in the clearest possible way, that its important years were those between 1960 and 1996, and in an article that effectively stops coverage after those dates since there wasn't much to say?

I'm not sure your logic, but if it makes you happy then power to you. But maybe consider next time, that

  • If you don't know about something; and
  • You weren't involved in any discussion or positive contribution; and
  • You don't bother to research the something; and
  • The uninvolved reviewers who did check agree it's appropriate;

then you might want to think how it makes you look, when you try to find a bandwagon and jump on it with snarkiness. It doesn't make you look good at all. It makes you look like someone whose approach to other editors is less, not more, trustworthy and level headed.

I see you have a good few months editing, and a good number of edits. We need good editors, but the next person you BITE may not be experienced and may get upset, and not allow for the error. You might drive people off the project. I'm sure on reflection if your point was serious, you could have said it more seriously and directly to me. Can we have less of this, in future? Thanks.

Award[edit]

The description of me as a typical American in the award, if correct, would disclose improper personal information. Please comply with Wikipedia terms and conditions regarding user privacy.Patroit22 (talk) 13:39, 18 October 2013 (UTC)

Not personal information, it's more likely it's a reference to the assumed misspelling of your username as "Patriot" since that's typically associated with America. In any case, you haven't been "outed" as an American, since you haven't admitted to being one. Thanks Jenova20 (email) 14:19, 18 October 2013 (UTC)
Jenova- Here is an indent for you and your friends. Outed as an American is an abnormal use of this term. The primary us is related to coming out of the closet. Peace.Patroit22 (talk) 00:14, 21 October 2013 (UTC)
Sorry, I left the e off use.Patroit22 (talk) 00:18, 21 October 2013 (UTC)
I'm not going to argue with you over the use of the word "outing" Patroit. Some of us have improvements to Wikipedia to make. You might like to try it too rather than crying out for attention at multiple pages. Thanks Jenova20 (email) 10:19, 21 October 2013 (UTC)
I am trying to improve Wikipedia but seem to be facing bullying barriers.Patroit22 (talk) 12:39, 21 October 2013 (UTC)
You have set up the barriers by pushing a POV on two articles and then trolling on multiple pages of editors who disagreed with you. If you want to edit, then edit. If you want to push a POV or get on a soapbox then you will find many more barriers appear. Thanks Jenova20 (email) 14:42, 21 October 2013 (UTC)
Trolling accusations are serious if unfounded . I have only responded and never initiated comments. I do not plan to edit in such a hostile climate and comments such as this are a reason. Please consider using care in giving unsolicited advice to further an obvious POV posting agenda.Patroit22 (talk) 19:08, 21 October 2013 (UTC)
