A number of curious or strange requests occasionally appear on the Wikipedia Village pump and other community forums; apparently some visitors have Wikipedia confused with other, unrelated sites. Many times, such questions are posted by people seeking information about a particular subject, and are quite appropriate for the reference desk, so if you encounter such a question on the pump or elsewhere, please try to be helpful and direct the questioner to the reference desk instead.

However, some requests are just so off-the-wall that they would be inappropriate even on the reference desk. In keeping with the spirit of archiving other silly things, this page lists some of those strange requests for the purpose of a little harmless amusement. See also Wikipedia:Talk page highlights.

Remote possibilities[edit]

My friends and I were recently (3/2/04) playing Milton Bradley's game "Remote Possibilities" and noticed one question regarding who recieved the most Oscar (Academy) nominations. Until the 2004 awards held on 3/1/04, Titanic had the most nominations in history, but it no longer does, thereby making your game incorrect, by stating Titanic as the answer. I am a huge fan, i know two other people who have this game, and we want to know if you will be making a new version.

Bootleg copy[edit]

Hi:

I recently purchased a DVD from E-bay that was a grouping of banned cartoons. Several studios were on this copy including yours. It was a burned copy and they are advertising it as new. The listing was called Banned & World War II caroons Vol. 1 and Vol 2. I did not know if you knew about this but thought you would like to know.


Since you have obtained a bootleg copy of a Wikitoonpedia Cartoon, Wikipedia will punish you for theft. Think of how Jimbo drew 500 000 frames by hand for those cartoons! Alx xlA 00:51, 13 January 2007 (UTC)

student exchange[edit]

Hello,

My name is [name deleted] and I am a student at the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. I am enquiring about the student exchange program. I have been trying to locate information on this subject for some time now and have recieved none. My Uma lives near Ruhr and i am thinking about living with her for the school year and getting transfered to your university. I do not know if your university deals with the University of Manitoba in this way so this is the reason i am writing you. If you could get back to me with any information on this subject it would be greatly appreciated. My e-mail address is [email deleted]

Sincerely, [name deleted]

The University of Wikipedia does not currently have an exchange program with your university. However, if you want to organize one we would be willing to participate. Bensaccount 15:30, 19 Apr 2004 (UTC)

Bad tire[edit]

Where do I post a complaint? I have a tire with a bubble on the side wall, and your agent (Discount Tire) is claimimg it is road hazard. It is on a trailer that I purchased new just over a year ago and has less than 5000 miles in it. I feel that your agent is giving you a bad name in this case. Please advise. Respectfully submitted George [address removed]

George, this is an encyclopedia. We don't sell tires, we don't have agents, and we get our bad name in ways other than vending bubbly tires. I suggest you find a different website on which to post your tire complaint. -- Finlay McWalter | Talk 17:56, 28 May 2004 (UTC)

What do you think?[edit]

I talked to my psychologist Monday and told him that perhaps I would do better getting in the Engineering field. He told me I might do better with a degree in Veterinary Technology. He knows I am better at science (Chemistry, Biology, and Medicine) then I am at Math, and getting a Bachelor's degree in engineering is more relient on higher math then veterinary technology. What do you think? And what are the advantages/disadvantages in being in these fields and getting an education in them (through comparing the two for the advantages/disadvantages)?

The engineering I want to take in school is Electrical/Electronic and Mechanical engineering.

Thank you.

HELP!!!!! Anybody have a good remedy for massive welts and itching?!?!?!?!?![edit]

Forgive me if this is covered somewhere or this isn't the proper forum but I'm squirming and yelping from intense itching and almost body wide welts from bites. I live in Florida (am hoping to move to a drier climate, at least less mosquitoe infested soon) and this season is particularly bad. I've tried ice, cold water, alcohol (applied to the skin) benadryl spray and am still covered in welts and going nuts. Any help would be appreciated. I'm at (e-mail removed) or call (phone number removed) (I'll call you back and reimburse any long distance charges).

Thanks! Suffering in Miami, Jean

This guy must be trying to get on Wikipedia: Unusual requests. Deco 00:12, 21 Jun 2005 (UTC)
This is a minor enough problem that I don't see the problem with online advice. Mine is: don't get bitten by mosquitoes. Use repellant. If that's insufficient, try stronger over-the-counter anti-itch products; if it's really bad, see a dermatologist. Nickptar 04:05, 21 Jun 2005 (UTC)

From Talk:Carnatic music:

My Dears,

I want to know which ragam was to playback in a wedding VIDEO CD.
And tell me the title of the album IN CD.
And tell me where i will get.
Please contact me to [ email deleted ] or [ email deleted ].
Awaiting for the mail.
Do this favour for me.
Thanks from [ name deleted ]
I'm sorry, but it doesn't serve the purpose of an encyclopedia to tell you which ragam was played on a CD. Besides, we don't know which CD you're referring to.--Siva 20:32, 10 Apr 2005 (UTC)

I think the humor in this lies less in the quirkiness of the request (and the lack of understanding on the part of the writer about what we do) than in the laughable English. (It should be noted that the name with which the posting was originally signed was an English one. Obviously an Indian with poor English trying to pass off as someone he's not.)--Siva 19:54, 16 July 2005 (UTC)

Hmm I think the guy had a legitimate (if somewhat unusual) query. My guess is the guy is a wedding videographer, shooting a south indian wedding for the first time and is looking for a classical soundtrack to play over the video. So he is looking for the name of a ragam which would be appropriate as a soundtrack for a wedding and wants to know which (audio) CD he can find that ragam in. --Spundun 03:10, 10 December 2005 (UTC)

From Wikipedia:Village pump (assistance).

I have a 95 oldsmobile ciera with low miles. Does anyone know how to adjust the headlights on this vehicle. It takes bulbs and I can not find any adjusting screwes. The book shows how to adjust with seald beams but not with bulbs and there are no adjustments where it shows for sealed beams

Variety[edit]

Would it be possible to provide a bit more variety rather than repeating the same old content every few months. Examples would be the older movies such as Convoy and Smokey and the Bandit. I have been a Foxtel customer for four years and keep watching the same programs repeatedly. More Australian content would also be appreciated such as the old Paul Hogan and Norman Gunston shows. I am also appalled by the lack of Western Australian (Eagles) football available to Sydney residents.

Thanks! An entirely innocent text in proper place can create a dood deal of laugh. However, Willy on Wheels, the King of Internet, unfortunately has no control of TV-based media yet. Fortunately, here, on Wiki, you'll never get the same content again. -- CP/M comm |Wikipedia Neutrality Project| 07:27, 12 August 2006 (UTC) (P.S. Delete as needed).

METAL-HALIDE LAMPS[edit]

HELLO

I found your Information on METAL-HALIDE LAMPS Totally 100% almost unbeleivable, wow what great information you have assembled.

I couldn't have got any better.

One thing I would like to find out is how many watts a 400 watt Metal-Halide yard light on pole would require {consume?}

We have many power outages here and want to use it on a portable generator when power is out. My guess would be maybe 400 watts at 110 volts, but I would rather trust you the experts.

Thanking you very kindly for all the amazing useful information.

My best warm regards to you all there.

difficulty trying to open a packaged food[edit]

I bought some " Reser's original potato salad" and had myself a terrible time trying to open the plastic package , the plastic is so terribly strong , I was working on it for about an hour , I ruined both of my thumb fingernails trying to get them into the crack in order to open the top . I finally founf a knife which was pointy and thin enough to finally gain entry beween the lips which separate the top from the bottom , I had to apply a lot of force in order to achieve a separation.I am sure a woman would not have had any luck in getting this package open. As far as woman's house work and the tools for such house work are concerned , every inventor and company are striving to make housework for women easier , your company does not seem to share this philosophy. I wish you would have printed a telephone number on the package under which I could have reached your customer servive , it would have made it a lot easier for me to voice my complaint , but your company seems to strive to make things a lot harder in every department.

I am just feeling a bit down. I do not like my job, I do not have many friends. I am lonely. I have set up three accounts for which I have been trolling. User:Wordytttttrijiji, KeithMcEnnisLtd, and User:CroekBennet. I admit it. I am a vandal. I have actually been vandalising for years, since I first found Wikipedia back around 2004. I evade the blocks by rebooting my router. But now I have come clean, I will be stopping my vandalism and trolling. I intend to become an established editor now. I have turned over a new leaf. Thank you. --Higoodtuceya (talk) 21:35, 5 September 2012 (UTC)
Well, you'll need to convince of of that in an unblock request on your user talk page (see instructions here) and start following Wikipedia policy by not creating any more accounts and not evading your blocks. Continuing to evade your blocks is not helping your case in the slightest, and honestly if I were logged into my other account I'd block this new account as well.
