Disambiguation link notification for August 24[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited Totenkopf, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages German and Skull and crossbones (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

I've reported our discussion to Wikiquette Assistance Notice of Wikiquette Assistance discussion[edit]

Hello, Trofobi. This message is being sent to inform you that a discussion is taking place at Wikipedia:Wikiquette assistance regarding I did say I'd have to check where to report trolling.... The thread is {{{Wikipedia:Wikiquette assistance}}}#Talk:Broadsword_.28disambiguation.29.23August_2012_cleanupThe discussion is about the topic Broadsword_(disambiguation). Thank you. --ZarlanTheGreen (talk) 16:33, 9 September 2012 (UTC) I found the pages regarding how to report Wikiquette Assistance, and how to make this notice to be in need of a bit more clarification, so I may have made a few mistakes in the process of the report and/or the above notice.--ZarlanTheGreen (talk) 16:33, 9 September 2012 (UTC)

Yep, totally fucked up the notice. Well, you can check Wikipedia:WQA#Talk:Broadsword_.28disambiguation.29.23August_2012_cleanup, Wikipedia:Dispute_resolution and Wikipedia:Etiquette for more info.--ZarlanTheGreen (talk) 16:42, 9 September 2012 (UTC)
Could you be so kind and fix at least the headline-mess and the WP:PA you left here. Or do you want me to deal with these? --Trofobi (talk) 15:05, 12 September 2012 (UTC)
(Original Zarlan's contributions moved to WQA-noticeboard as agreed below. --Trofobi (talk) 01:04, 14 September 2012 (UTC))
Please move these answers & accusations to the WQA-noticeboard, I will react there. --Trofobi (talk) 00:04, 14 September 2012 (UTC)
If you think they're relevant, just mention them on the noticeboard ...or if you don't want them here, you have my permission to move them there, as long as you copy all of it (except for the first row, as it'd create another section) and say where it's from. Either way you have my permission to remove this section of your talk page ...but as it's your own talk page, you don't really need my permission anyway.--ZarlanTheGreen (talk) 00:23, 14 September 2012 (UTC)

Notice of Dispute resolution discussion[edit]

Hello. This message is being sent to inform you that there is currently a discussion at Wikipedia:Dispute resolution noticeboard regarding a content dispute in which you may have been involved. Content disputes can hold up article development, therefore we request your participation in the discussion to help find a resolution. The thread is "Wikipedia:Dispute resolution noticeboard#Broadsword". Thank you! EarwigBot operator / talk 19:59, 16 September 2012 (UTC)

An automatic notice! Nice. No way for me to fuck that up. Well, no need for me to notify you, then. Anyway, Wikipedia:Wikiquette assistance doesn't exist anymore, so I put this up for dispute resolution instead.--ZarlanTheGreen (talk) 20:03, 16 September 2012 (UTC)

Hi! I am the dispute resolution volunteer who will be assisting this case. Right now we are waiting for your initial comment. If you choose not to participate, that's OK; just let me know so we can move forward instead of waiting for your input. Thanks! --Guy Macon (talk) 22:27, 17 September 2012 (UTC)

Hi Guy, thank you for your time & work. I use to think about an answer before posting heated up thoughts, but will reply soon. --Trofobi (talk) 23:17, 17 September 2012 (UTC)
Take as much time as you need. There is no deadline. --Guy Macon (talk) 00:04, 18 September 2012 (UTC)

Nuclear renaissance page editing[edit]

Hi, I have started a new talk section on regarding your reverting of my edits and asking for citations. I would appreciate your input. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ecoltom (talkcontribs) 07:05, 24 September 2012 (UTC)

Tweak user page[edit]

Hi, I saw your userpage, and wondered if you'd mind helping distinguish the page a bit more, maybe by putting this at the top? { {subst:user page} } (without spaces) - more help here Template:User page . Widefox; talk 11:07, 17 October 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for your suggestion. Don't you think this notice and all the obvious babel/irony/etc. is fully sufficient? --Trofobi (talk) 10:46, 22 October 2012 (UTC)
Nein, I'm happy to leave that to the template designers. Widefox; talk 18:15, 22 October 2012 (UTC)
Hmmm, it's really surprising that your own user page doesn't feature it then. --Trofobi (talk) 00:23, 23 October 2012 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done. I am still concerned about your page per WP:FAKEARTICLE. Would you consider adding the noindex in the mean-time? Widefox; talk 09:48, 23 October 2012 (UTC)
Ah, thanks - I didn't know or even imagine there was a guideline like this... Yes check.svg Done too :)
BTW, would you like to get a little help improving your user page's statement at de:Benutzer:Widefox to match your babel level? --Trofobi (talk) 14:18, 23 October 2012 (UTC)
you mean something like "finden Sie auf meiner Webseite"? haven't logged into in ages. Widefox; talk 22:02, 24 October 2012 (UTC)
Well... not really... rather something like "Mein Hauptprofil ist: [[]]" or "Besuchen Sie meine englische Benutzerseite" (but Siezen is rather uncommon among German Wikipedians) or "Besuch mich im [[]]" or "Ich bin nicht so oft hier, sondern meistens dort: [[]]" or "Mein Hauptaccount ist in der englischsprachigen Wikipedia: [[]]" would sound like you knew German better. --Trofobi (talk) 07:34, 7 November 2012 (UTC)


Oops, removal of interlanguage links was unintentional. Sorry for the trouble. Opus33 (talk) 23:22, 22 November 2012 (UTC)

Ah, OK, thx for clarification :) --Trofobi (talk) 10:04, 23 November 2012 (UTC)



I notice you have reported me to the Edit Warring notice board, and I have read your reasoning. I understand where you are coming from, but feel you have made an error. You have assumed that the edits are from one person, using multiple IP's.

This is the problem of open editting.

The Royal British Legion Riders Branch has 6000 members, and a short while ago one of the members commented on our forum that the Wikipedia entry was listing us as a motorcycle club.

This has resulted in a number of members making a number of edits independantly, so looking like a vandalism attack. If you have an open edit policy then this will happen from time to time.

Your colleague Dennis Bratland has explained to me about the definition of 'club' used by the motorcycle section of wikipedia, and I understand your view. However, the other 6000 members do not understand as it is not clear to all.

I have suggested a paragraph be inserted in the 'RBLR page', (rather than changing the 'list of clubs' page) to clarify where the RBLR fits in the club terminology, however Dennis removed this. I have queried his decision with him.

I understand why you do not desire undiscussed changes on the generic motorcycle pages, but many people are not aware of the edit process (myself included, but learning fast) and so I expect this to re-occur from time to time.

I will place a notice on our forum requesting that they do not make changes, but send views to me. This should reduce the edits.

May I then request that either yourself or Dennis enter discussion with me to bring the RBLR page up to date.

Hi Steve, nice reading from you here, now that explains a lot to me :) --Trofobi (talk) 02:05, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

User:Trofobi/Plastic Planet[edit]

Hello. When I was today searching for references to write about the film "Plastic Planet" I found this translation in progress by you. I want to inform that, as I can't understand Deutsch and your "article under construction" doesn't cite sources, I needed to search more on the web for english fiable information. This information is avaiable in the article on Portuguese Wikipedia: pt:Plastic Planet (filme). Maybe you're interested in use it to create an article here, in English Wikipedia.--MisterSanderson (talk) 03:09, 17 April 2013 (UTC)

Oh, hi! Sorry for the late answer... Yes, thanks a lot for your work in and for posting the link here! - I hope I'll find some time soon to go on with the translation. :) --Trofobi (talk) 12:54, 2 May 2013 (UTC)

I have reverted your edits to Emmelie de Forest. Please do not reinsert.[edit]

Trofobi, text about Emmelie de F's supposed "promotion" of herself as a descendant of Queen Victoria has already been removed several times from the article for reasons related to Wikipedia's policy regarding biographies of living persons, and the earlier times it wasn't even as offensively phrased as the text you have added. I presume you weren't aware of the earlier problems and meant no harm, but if you study the article history and the talkpage, you will see it. I have blocked one person over this issue; please read my warnings and block message to that user here:[1][2][3], as I'm getting a little tired of repeating the arguments. I'm sure you meant no harm, but don't reinsert the material. I don't have time now, but tomorrow I will look more carefully at the sources for E de F's involvement in the "nazi uniforms" issue; at a glance they look unimpressive, so I've temporarily removed that paragraph as well as the "Queen Victoria" one. I may reinsert the second paragraph tomorrow, if I'm satisfied with the sources on a closer look. Sorry to come on so strong, but Wikipedia isn't in the business of harming the subjects of biographical articles. Bishonen | talk 23:51, 20 May 2013 (UTC).

You're always welcome to be bold :) --Trofobi (talk) 07:53, 21 May 2013 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

Eventhough You consider my approach to Emmelie de Forest's unscrupulous claims too harsh, I'd like to thank You for hard and dangerous work on fighting her aficionados. (talk) 14:22, 28 May 2013 (UTC)
Oh, thank you, that's very nice :) Actually I'm quite a bit of an Emmelie-fan myself, that's why I regard it important to have this info in the article in a neutral way. --Trofobi (talk) 04:04, 24 June 2013 (UTC)

IP edit[edit]

Yes, this is me. i added my actual user name link to those edits, for clarity. thanks for catching that, i hadnt thought about how easy it would be to just identify as a random user when editing from an IP. especially ironic considering the article subject :) .Mercurywoodrose (talk) 02:41, 12 June 2013 (UTC)

Re: Consensus[edit]

No consensus anywhere as far as I know, but since I'm the only one that tries to clean these pages and seeing as how the amount of info made it impossible to clean, I don't really see anything of value lost by doing that. Wizardman 04:52, 5 February 2014 (UTC)

No problem. Looks good to me.--MrSilva (talk) 14:16, 21 February 2014 (UTC)
