User Prosfilaes[edit]

Has accused me of putting falsehoods or lies into an aviation template. On 4 occasions. Here[1], here[2], here[3], here[4] here[5] and here[6]. There's probably an edit or two more. It's not true. The italics and bolds were removed per consensus, reverted, and then reversed again while a new discussion was started. This editor needs something, possibly a block, to shut him or her up....William 21:28, 24 July 2014 (UTC)

It's hard to see in the history, since it's a template in a template, but at the time he made those changes, the template said "Accidents with more then 50 fatalities are italicized". He then removed the italics from accidents with more than 50 fatalities. I've explained this elsewhere, like on the talk page of the template, but he has been more interested in accusing me of personal attacks then listening to the complaints about content.--Prosfilaes (talk) 21:45, 24 July 2014 (UTC)

Note- I also put this up at Sphilbrick's Talk page....William 21:34, 24 July 2014 (UTC)

Please disregard this TRM, Sphilbrick is handling it. That's unless you want to weigh in over on his talk page....William 22:31, 24 July 2014 (UTC)

DYKs[edit]

Hi TRM, congratulations on being your usual proficient self with regard to The Boat Race. Here's the latest batch of DYKs:

Thanks, Matty.007 13:16, 25 July 2014 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) Matty, TRM, I think it's time for some quid pro quo reviews to be offered. The Rambling Man is perfectly capable of nominating his own articles if he thinks they're appropriate for DYK, and with these four, Matty has nominated ten of TRM's boat race GAs at this point. Thanks. BlueMoonset (talk) 15:31, 25 July 2014 (UTC)
I won't list them as such, and I may do some Prep building instead in the absence of Gatoclass, but I will do some form of help in the next few days. Thanks, Matty.007 15:41, 25 July 2014 (UTC)
@BlueMoonset: I don't want to nominate my own GAs for DYK but I am more than happy for User:Matty.007 to do so. Please don't litter my talk page with your trash talk. If Matty has done something against the rules, fine. If not, pipe down. The Rambling Man (talk) 17:27, 25 July 2014 (UTC)

Hi. What was wrong with using the flag icons for nationality? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Cantab12 (talkcontribs) 15:16, 29 July 2014 (UTC)
