Substitute for userboxes and other stuff[edit]

Since I can't figure out how to make new userboxes, or if I even should for that matter. That and the fact that some reactionary bureaucrats have deleted my images.

  • This user is a FREQUENT contributor to the Internet Movie Database, as well as the Internet Movie Cars Database.
  • This user jumps from one computer to the next.
  • This user is as anti-racist as he is anti-communist.
  • This user has rotten computer skills, as you can tell by his profile.
  • This user plays music on vinyl, cassette, compact disc, and will return to 8-track and reel-to-reel tapes if necessary.
  • This user is a car freak.
  • This user does not trust edit-count userboxes to keep up with his actual amount of edits.
  • This user prefers to improve articles, rather than delete or redirect them.
  • This user isn't above making a few redirections himself, when necessary (but only when necessary).
  • This user rejects the myth that insurgents in Iraq are "resisting U.S. occupation," and knows that each terrorist group is fighting for their own agenda, making the Iraqi people the victims.
  • This user has not forgotten that we still have troops in Afghanistan hunting for the Taliban & Al-Qaida, despite the lack of news coverage and assumptions to the contrary.
  • This user is disgusted by the rampant redirection of articles on major to moderate fictional characters.
  • This user despises users and administrators who mess up naming conventions for railroad stations.
  • This uses has used defective computers to improve Wikipedia, including the one he owns, which is often why some of his edits don't always work out.

Images on Display[edit]

TOO MANY ARE BEING BANNED BY WIKI-BUREACRATS

File:Which Iraqi Resistance.jpg

An image I've been trying to save. First because it was attached to an article that some people keep deleting without justification, and next because I think Brenda Song looks great like this.

Since some bot deleted an article about a TV episode, another one decided to declare the image I added for it an orphan file. Not even the fact that I posted it on my userpage protected it. So this time, I decided to replace it with something else


Well, the image from another article was deleted, because the article Influenza: The Musical (Even Stevens) was deleted by the same Son Of a Bot. So, I'm going to have to post something else here:

More Data to Come[edit]

  • February 4, 2016: When I joined Wikipedia nearly a decade ago, I was hoping my contributions were an effort to make the internet not suck. Recent changes within WP:Trains over the past year have not only reaffirmed my belief in the contrary, but has infuriated me excessively. I'm not retiring from this site just yet, because there's plenty that needs to be done.
  • October 9, 2016: Wikipedia is becoming asinine. Removing railroads from station articles, merging city hall, village hall, borough hall and similar categories in to town hall categories, and now removing more state names from cities.
  • December 20, 2016: Wiki-Bureaucrats are getting stupider now! Posting images of Historical Markers are considered Freedom of Panorama violations!
