Honestly, I made this page because I don't know the etiquette on these things. They've been on my user page for months, am I allowed to delete them, would that be rude? Should I keep them, is that poor taste as well?
ภาษาไทย: ด้วยความสัตย์จริงเลยนะ, ผมได้สร้างหน้านี้ เพราะผมก็ไม่ได้รู้ว่าโดยมารยาทแล้วควรจะจัดการกับสิ่งเหล่านี้ยังไงดี. แต่พวกมันก็อยู่บนหน้าผู้ใช้ของผมมาเป็นแรมเดือนแล้ว, ผมจะมีสิทธิ์ลบมันออกได้งั้นเหรอ, มันจะเป็นการหยาบคายไปรึเปล่า ถ้าผมจะทำเช่นนั้นลงไป? หรือว่าผมควรจะเก็บมันไว้หยั่งงี้, มันจะเป็นทัศนคติที่แย่รึเปล่า?
Español: Hice esta página porque no sé la regla de etiqueta en estos casos. Han estado en mi página desde hace meses; podría tacharlos, pero ¿no sería un grosero? Debo quedarme con los premios, o ¿sería de mal gusto también?
Deutsch: Ich erstellte diese Seite, weil ich die Etikette bezüglich dieser Sachen nicht kenne. Sie waren monatelang auf meiner Benutzerseite…darf ich sie löschen, wäre das unhöflich? Sollte ich sie speichern, würde das auch von schlechtem Geschmack zeugen?
Català: Vaig fer aquesta pàgina perquè no sabia què era d'etiqueta en aquests casos. Han estat a la meva plana d'usuari durant mesos; les podria esborrar, però no seria molt groser? Me les hauria de quedar, o també seria de mal gust?
Italiano: Ho creato questa pagina perché non so quali siano le regole da seguire in questi casi. Sono rimaste sulla mia userpage per dei mesi, posso cancellarle o sarebbe maleducato? E se le tenessi, sarebbe di cattivo gusto?

עברית: בכנות, אני עשיתי את דף זה משום שאני לא יודע את כללי התנהגות על הדברים האלה. הם כבר בדף המשתמש שלי במשך חודשים, האם מותר לי למחוק אותם, זה יהיה גס רוח? אני צריך לשמור אותם, היא חסרת טעם גם כן? 0

Anyhow, I moved them here. :-)
ภาษาไทย: แต่จะยังไงก็เถอะ, ผมก็ย้ายมันมาไว้ซะที่นี่หละ. :-)
Español: Así que decidí moverlos aquí. :-)
Deutsch: Wie auch immer, ich habe sie hierher verschoben :-)
Català: Així que vaig decidir posar-los aquí. :-)
Italiano: Comunque, le ho spostate tutte qui. :-)

עברית: בכל אופן, העברתי אותם לכאן. :-) 0

  • Keep them, as some sort of an archive..there aren't THAT many barnstars either..it's not like it floods browsers and crashes 56K modems ;) -- SoothingR 07:49, 4 October 2005 (UTC)

Award Distinction User Date
Original Barnstar.png For treating himself as just another editor. The ultimate spirit of an admin is "It's no big deal," he has the most power on wikipedia, and still carries that "no big deal" aspect with him. Absolutely amazing!!! Businessman332211 01:31, 17 Feb 2004 (UTC)
