2015 already[edit]

Hi Wifione. No frills - just a quiet ‘’all the best’’ to you for 2015 and I hope you’ll continue to be around on Wikipedia for a long time to come. --Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 15:00, 1 January 2015 (UTC)

Hi Kudpung. Thanks so much for the thoughtful note :) I hope so too, and likewise hope to see you around Wikipedia for a long time. It's been lovely interacting with you. Season's greetings and new year wishes. Wifione Message 16:00, 1 January 2015 (UTC)

Mostly personal comments[edit]

Hi Wifione, I've been meaning to say something to you on your Talk page for quite some time, but I kept putting it off because I didn't know what to say exactly. My apologies for these belated comments. As you must know, my personal interaction with you has always been a pleasure, and it was with dismay that I became aware of the controversy surrounding your conduct (I was completely unaware of it during most the time it was brewing). Frankly, I haven't followed the evidence presented against you in the arbitration case to have any opinion of my own as to what you did or didn't do. I have, however, kept abreast of the direction of the case and the proposed decision. At this point, it looks like in addition to giving up your tools you're going to be formally banned from the project. I'm sorry to hear that, and I personally wish you nothing but the best. As we hopefully all know, there are other things in life besides Wikipedia. Regards.--Bbb23 (talk) 16:34, 12 February 2015 (UTC)

Bbb, thank you, as always. It has been a privilege knowing you. Wifione Message

Song without words --Gerda Arendt (talk) 23:23, 12 February 2015 (UTC)

I don't really know what to say. I'm sitting here, almost in tears, because one of the most influential people I've recently come to admire, respect, and grow fond of working with, has just had their integrity and image shred. I started writing out a longer post but there's really no point. Good luck Wifione. I suppose I'll have to harass Bbb23 now. Dusti*Let's talk!* 00:42, 15 February 2015 (UTC)
  • Echoing what Bbb23 said, I don't know what you did or didn't do. But I remember that working with you (years ago) was always a pleasure. You have done a lot to this project, and it will forever be remembered. I wish you all the best, Wifione. Good luck. Rehman 01:48, 15 February 2015 (UTC)

Clarification[edit]

Hello Wifione

I observed that an autopatrol was recently granted to a user who had only created disambiguation pages. It seemed like a bridge of WP:AUTOPAT. How do you explain this? Cheers!Face-smile.svg Wikigyt@lk to M£ 04:56, 24 February 2015 (UTC)
