I am Otterathome, I registered in March 2008 and have been editing since. I have made over 2,000 edits.

My face when I 'lose' to vandals.

There are a few users I dislike, namely this user and this user, but I put up with it.

I also 'lose' to vandals, apparently.

Funny, but mostly true.

Techno Viking[edit]

Hello - Just curious, what was it about the edit at Techno Viking that you found incorrect? Johnsmith2116 (talk) 20:51, 23 September 2014 (UTC)

Winged Cat[edit]

The information I added to Shia LaBeouf was properly referenced, and so far as I could tell complied with Wikipedia's living (or recently deceased) persons policy. I find your claim that my original edit was not properly referenced to be incorrect, as said edit which you reverted included a Time.com source (granted, I did not label it as Time, but the URL went to time.com), which you agree is reliable, regardless of any disagreement we may have about the quality of the other references (which I would not have included if I did not believe them reliable - but you agree that it is properly referenced even without those, as evidenced by your removal of said extra references). If you disagree with this, I invite you to check the page history, and look carefully at my first edit or your reversion of it.

While I appreciate the spirit in which your reversion and warnings were done, you did them in error in this case. I urge you to take more care before you revert edits in the future. Winged Cat (talk) 20:43, 26 December 2014 (UTC)

I was in the process of fixing this article, when I noticed in the history that you had merged it into Epic Meal Time#Cast and crew back in 2012. An IP editor re-created the page March 3 with a generally bad version of it (messed up cites, etc..) Wonder if I should just revert to your version, or you feel if a merger discussion is needed? — Strongjam (talk) 20:04, 17 March 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

March 2016[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Northamerica1000. I noticed that you removed topically-relevant content from Bernie Sanders' Dank Meme Stash. However, Wikipedia is not censored to remove content that might be considered objectionable. Please do not remove or censor information that directly relates to the subject of the article. If the content in question involves images, you have the option to configure Wikipedia to hide images that you may find offensive. Take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you may leave a message on my talk page. Thank you.

  • Sorry, but your next edit created a bunch of formatting errors in the references section (diff). Please use the preview button. North America1000 15:40, 13 March 2016 (UTC)
You'd think that if an unreliable source was used throughout a page, at least one editor would see it and remove it.--Otterathome (talk) 15:50, 13 March 2016 (UTC)
Sure, but your edits made a relatively stable page unstable, per the multiple errors that were left after the edit. North America1000 15:51, 13 March 2016 (UTC)
A productive editor would've noticed what I attempted to do, and repaired it, not just bang on the revert button.--Otterathome (talk) 15:54, 13 March 2016 (UTC)
Please consider fixing your own errors, rather than expecting others to do so for you. Thanks, North America1000 17:04, 14 March 2016 (UTC)

Your Caution[edit]

Firstly, if I have behaved in any way inappropriately by reversing your removal of a source, please accept my apologies. I reversed it because I could not understand why on earth anyone would remove a single reference from an article that is ostensibly one that uses all its sources to document the history of a phenomenon. However, given the length of time you have been editing, I naturally defer to your authority. In the light of that, could you please explain to me why you singled out that specific source as unreliable, as to me it is no more or less so than many others. Thereby, really I ought to strip the article considerably. Many thanks. PS: Cautioning was unnecessarily aggressive in my view. I have never behaved in any way with malicious or ill intent, and have made considerably thorough contributions to WP in the single year of my membership. You could have found a more compassionate way to respond without losing your ground.
