Happy Diwali[edit]


WikiThanks.png Thank you for reverting the vandalism to my userpage :-) Kirill Lokshin 02:06, 1 November 2005 (UTC)

A request for the Whobot![edit]

Hi. I saw you are the owner of Whobot. It would be great if you could run this script for me:

MOVE_CONTENTS Category:Arges Category:Argeş
MOVE_CONTENTS Category:Braila Category:Brăila
MOVE_CONTENTS Category:Brasov Category:Braşov
MOVE_CONTENTS Category:Caras-Severin Category:Caraş-Severin
MOVE_CONTENTS Category:Dambovita Category:Dâmboviţa
MOVE_CONTENTS Category:Maramures Category:Maramureş
MOVE_CONTENTS Category:Neamt Category:Neamţ
MOVE_CONTENTS Category:Timis Category:Timiş

These are some categories that do not have their diacriticals (they were created before Wikipedia switched to UTF). After the move they can be speedy deleted according to the policy (as misspelled categories). Thanks. bogdan | Talk 00:29, 2 November 2005 (UTC)

Hi, although they are speedy, they need a 48 hour notification. I have posted them on WP:CFD in the speedy section. «»Who?¿?meta 01:26, 2 November 2005 (UTC)

Another request[edit]

I dumped a script at User talk:Whobot/tasks. It didn't have to do with the sports stuff (which I believe is done), so I didn't want to assume anything. The new stuff is airport cats from speedy (they were listed for at least two days then moved to cleanup). If you want me to do this another way, just let me know. I figure I'd help out since you're limited with access. --Kbdank71 19:21, 2 November 2005 (UTC)

Yea that's fine. I was thinking about the same thing earlier, if you want to put stuff in there to be done, I will run them. I am running between here and a friends server so I can keep it running as long as possible. «»Who?¿?meta 19:29, 2 November 2005 (UTC)
Oh yea, instead of the date, if u do the usual format, you can just put speedy instead. «»Who?¿?meta 19:30, 2 November 2005 (UTC)
Shiny! Do you want me to put new stuff in tasks or tasks talk? I figure it'd be better if you gave my additions a once over, just to make sure I haven't lost my mind at some point. Then again, you can probably check it before running whobot, so either way, it's up to you. --Kbdank71 19:37, 2 November 2005 (UTC)
 :) I give them a rough over, and i look at them while its running and some when they are done. I have caught some of my own mistakes as well. Uhm, you can put them on the regular tasks, or on talk, i'll move them over. Also, if they cat already exists, like spanish bball, it will just merge with it, so you dont have to do it manually, unless you want :) I wish I had my pc.. I could do sooo much more. «»Who?¿?meta 19:39, 2 November 2005 (UTC)
Think of it as a mini vacation (or holiday as our British friends would say) :) The fort is being held. --Kbdank71 19:49, 2 November 2005 (UTC)

User:Please Don't Block[edit]

You got some way to get him/her to stop reverting the warnings? --Nlu 05:35, 3 November 2005 (UTC)

Not really. I was going to revert, but didn't see anything really harmful, atm. If too many warnings pile up, it may become an RFC though. Sometimes we keep track of them on a seperate page, or make an archive sub-page on their talk space. I will try to watch what is up, since they blantanly ignored my suggestions. «»Who?¿?meta 05:40, 3 November 2005 (UTC)

On-going vandalism[edit]

Diacrit (talk • contribs • deleted contribs • nuke contribs • logs • filter log • block user • block log) (blocked) - persistent user who creates numerous user names to remove Template:Foreignchar from various articles. Created user names include: User:Jeaijij, User:Agraman, User:Oagafauou, User:Qesecaue, User:Uefot, User:Huaelo, User:Bifo, User:Timoa, User:Feoouubiao, User:Eooaqinol, User:Xeuuces, and that's only ones I have caught on recent changes page. Most of them have only 1 edit. And the list keeps growing every second, just look at new user log!!! Please help. Renata3 22:35, 4 November 2005 (UTC)

Sorry it took awhile, blocked those listed. If you have anymore contact User:Fvw or User:Curps, they maybe able to block them faster or the IP range they are using. «»Who?¿?meta 23:39, 4 November 2005 (UTC)
Thanks for blocking them, however, it did not help much. If you check Special:Whatlinkshere/Template:Foreignchar there is only talk pages left. When I checked it during the day, there was about 150-200 articles... I suspect that that person created tens (if not hundreds) of user names s/he vandalized... The new user log was just spammed during the day with new users that was his/hers socks. One should have blocked the whole IP... But I guess it's too late and now somebody needs to revert everything. I would love to make a list of the users to block & revert, but I have completely no time. Renata3 03:12, 5 November 2005 (UTC)
Hey. Sorry I couldnt do more, limited net access, plus we dont have access to the IP w/o checkuser. I will try to repair some of the damage, and make a list for my bot if there are a lot of articles. «»Who?¿?meta 03:17, 5 November 2005 (UTC)

Hey, it's ok. Thank you so much. I was just upset that the vandal got what s/he wanted. At least you are the one who cared :)

Anyways, I did a very stupid thing: instead of studying for my midterm at 9am tomorrow, I stayed till 3am, manually checked new user log from 13:16, 4 November 2005 to 02:55, 5 November 2005 to and came up with this sockpuppet list (it includes your blocked socks; there might be one or two mistakes or omissions). Somebody (I suppose you know more admins than I do) needs to block & revert them (most articles are not yet reverted):

Vandalism by[edit]

Hi, Have a look at the edit history of this user - it's been nothing but vandalism. I've removed the most recent of it but just realised that for older articles it's probably been removed already - so I'm reverting my reverts now in those cases. Could you issue a warning to the user? Dlyons493 Talk 01:52, 5 November 2005 (UTC)

OK I think I've now got back to the right versions. Sorry about that - I'd done a number of articles before it dawned on me that other people had probably cleaned them up already. Dlyons493 Talk 02:09, 5 November 2005 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Thank you for the revert of my user page. --Rschen7754 (talk - contribs) 05:26, 5 November 2005 (UTC)

it wouldn't be accurate, because deletion data is only stored for deletetions since the 1.5 upgrade (except in the old deletion log, which isn't really machine readable). sorry. kate.

Relabeling categories[edit]

I see you changed a category from "U.S. film directors" to "American film directors." Could you also do this for the category U.S. philanthropists and Category:U.S. businesspeople? Thanks. - Ted Wilkes 16:08, 5 November 2005 (UTC)

sportts by country renames[edit]

Hi - Are you still in need of a list of names for the sports by country renamings? I could spend some time on this today or tomorrow. If yes, please let me know the exact format that would be most useful (I suppose I could dredge through whobot's sourcecode). Thanks. -- Rick Block (talk) 16:19, 5 November 2005 (UTC)

Actually, I think they are all done. I hadn't gone and checked yet though. But if you want to see the format for future reference see User:Whobot/tasks. Thanks. «»Who?¿?meta 16:23, 5 November 2005 (UTC)

Template:Vw-n wording[edit]

People other than those in court make judgements, and on the other hand the origin of "deemed" is also in legal proceeedings -- it is related to "doomed" and once ment a fact determined by a legal process, if i am not mistaken. I think "deemed" souinds a little pretentios in this use, but otherwise does not alter the meaning at all. DES (talk) 02:02, 12 November 2005 (UTC)

That's actually why I chose the word, same meaning, mostly, but not as "offensive" I think. We are not judge and jury, we are just trying to cleanup vandalism, I think the word "judged" is just too strong and gives a false impression of what we are here to do. IMHO. «»Who?¿?meta 02:06, 12 November 2005 (UTC)
Copied to template talk pages for future clarification. «»Who?¿?meta 02:07, 12 November 2005 (UTC)
To me "deemed" is at least as strong, possibly stronger, plus it sounds a bit elitist. But mostly i think that such warning msgs, should be kept in relatively simple english, sienc they may well be addressed to non-native speakers. I think usign a more common word than "deemed" would be better. if you want to soften it, use "belived", but I stand behind "judged" -- the person who reverts vandalism makes a judgement that that is what the edit is. DES (talk) 02:10, 12 November 2005 (UTC)
I agree in both cases, easier and better wording, I just don't like the sound of judged. I just chose deemed to try to stay close to the meaning. Feel free to change it if you have a better word, I would just like to stay away from judged or deemed :) if possible. «»Who?¿?meta 02:12, 12 November 2005 (UTC)

Pearle update[edit]

I just posted new source code...

  • Hey, there's a new response when requesting the page. Yeah, I noticed that when Pearle stopped working. Definitely fixed now.
  • I created getCategoryImages(), probably in response to your note, and added it to depopulateCat().
  • The source has been upgraded to get all articles from a category, instead of just the first 200. I think this obviates the need to use Special:Whatlinkshere as you were. Those lists are sometimes inaccurate (due to a template-related bug - but then, so are category membership lists), and of course they might contain articles that are not actually in the category.

-- Beland 08:04, 13 November 2005 (UTC)

Hey thanks for the update. Yea I was only using the Special:Whatlinkshere for the image pages really (like that soccerball.png), not for the cats, just so I could get all those linked articles. Also, the articles sometimes have hardlinked cats that I prefer not to have automatically changed. I also just had it check for images all the time now, so I've been getting those ok, although I may use your code for that after I look at it. I'm incorportating the new "targetSafe" and "pageSafe" features and of course the article 200 limit fix, and some of the other minor fixes you added. I have so many updates of my own now, it's hard to keep track :) Thanks again. «»Who?¿?meta 17:24, 13 November 2005 (UTC)

So just 10 more days of living in a parking lot :) I've been looking at condo's for awhile, if I can get all my paperwork finalized, I would like to move into one within a few weeks, but mortgages aren't a fast process, nor is finding a condo in South Florida that allows motorcycles and dogs.

who, you shouldn't have deleted that site about daniel laux, i know who he is, he has been in movies and plays all over minnesota and is become a notable figure in the midwest, although he can not be found on google, i dont think thats merrit enough to say hes not important, im going to have to say, put the site back up, or you will get many angry comments from many people in the midwest who see this. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 20:59, 2 December 2005


No, I'm fine, I think it should be protected for a while. According to what he wrote in Korean, he has access to the computers in Korea Universities, so I think you might be better off just blocking the whole range. (163.152.x.x). This is all because I removed copy vio and POV materials from Korea University page link Man, I never saw Wikipedia this way... -- WB 02:39, 16 November 2005 (UTC) (and about that, you might want to protect Korea University article too.)

Oh sorry, have a lot going on, missed the small line there.. :) «»Who?¿?meta 03:01, 16 November 2005 (UTC)
I realize you're busy, but can you delete some edits that guy made? Pretty serious swearing in there, and I don't even want it on the history either. Thanks. -- WB 03:10, 16 November 2005 (UTC)
Yea, I missed the "best" POV language there. I just rv'd rather than removing from history, as that would require deletion/undeletion and merging. I know how to do it, but it can be a pain :) It's normal to leave it in history though, for GFDL purposes. «»Who?¿?meta 03:18, 16 November 2005 (UTC)
Yeah... too bad... the language is pretty offensive... It's gotta stay I guess. -- WB 03:56, 16 November 2005 (UTC)
Do you mind unblocking it now (my user page)? I hope he doesn't vandalize it again... -- WB 02:35, 21 November 2005 (UTC)
Done, sorry it took so long :) «»Who?¿?meta 02:42, 21 November 2005 (UTC)
(belated) Thanks! -- WB 04:00, 23 November 2005 (UTC)


Sorry, I have an account on meta but I'm not an admin there. The same vandal made a huge mess at the HomestarRunner wiki [1]. See also [2] if you don't know what NSMC stands for. -- Curps 02:43, 16 November 2005 (UTC)


Hi, and thanks for your message. I've now registered the JGXenite account (so I can use the User:JGXenite and User:Jgxenite space without any problems). When I initially registered, I don't think you could have the three capital letters in my username that I normally have, hence the reason I "borrowed" the JGXenite user space.

Hi Who, thanks for the trust. I do have a Shaw connection, so I don't suppose there's any way for me to get away from the chance of mistaken ID happening. Thanks again. Bookandcoffee(Leave msg.) 01:11, 19 November 2005 (UTC)

Please do not protect the daily featured article - see user:Raul654/protection Raul654 07:04, 19 November 2005 (UTC)

Thanks for reverting the vandalism of Microwave auditory effect's resident nutbar to my user talk page. It really means a lot to see that people will watch for this sort of thing and take action against it... -- Antaeus Feldspar 16:33, 19 November 2005 (UTC)


Thanks for reverting the vandalism of my talk page and blocking User: Unfortunitly, he just came back and did it again after the block expired. [3] It really annoys me that AOL users can just avoid getting blocked, even when they are on a fixed IP. --JiFish(Talk/Contrib) 15:05, 20 November 2005 (UTC)

Yea sorry about that. If they do it again, believe me, I will block them for much longer. «»Who?¿?meta 18:07, 20 November 2005 (UTC)
There is no need to apologise. Thanks again. --JiFish(Talk/Contrib) 18:59, 20 November 2005 (UTC)

Hi Who,

I am now an administrator and would like to thank you for your support on my RfA. I was very surprised at the number of votes and amount of and kind comments that I gathered. Please don't hesitate to contact me if I mess up in the use of my new powers. --GraemeL (talk) 15:52, 21 November 2005 (UTC)

Peter Stadlen[edit]

Actually, it wasn't the 1996 death year that was in error, it was that he helped Mozart. He was a 20th century musicologist who specialized in Mozart. Caerwine 19:42, 21 November 2005 (UTC)

Wow, that was a long time ago, had forgotten about it :) Thanks for the correction though. «»Who?¿?meta 20:17, 21 November 2005 (UTC)

Arin tab[edit]

Thank you very much for working on it! By the way, you may want to look at Wikipedia:WikiProject User scripts, which has all sorts of nifty things related to monobook. Titoxd(?!?) 03:15, 24 November 2005 (UTC)

Yay! It's nice that you now have a new place. :) As for the ARIN tab, no, I haven't worked on it, but thanks again for working on it. My Monobook is a mess, since it is a cut-and-paste of several users' monobook.js's... I imagine that's what happens when I do that. ;) Titoxd(?!?) 01:12, 28 November 2005 (UTC)

Hi. I cited one of your edits as evidence in Wikipedia:Requests for arbitration/Pigsonthewing/Evidence and wanted to be up front about 'accusing' you of repeating a false claim about another user. I think this was an understandable mistake and do not fault you (indeed, I don't even know you), but I thought the point needed to be made to show why the user might be untrusting of admins. Sorry. --CBD T C @ 01:18, 25 November 2005 (UTC)


Thanks for your support on my RfA. Once I get my head round it all I'll have a crack at helping out on CfD. Your comments were also very warmly appreciated, and I hope I fulfill them. Hiding talk 10:06, 25 November 2005 (UTC)

Blocking template[edit]

Thanks, but I can't take credit for this template; it's Jossifresco's Template:Test5-n. I use it for short blocks. For anything over 12 hours I use Template:vblock, which was nice and compact when I created it, but has since grown to a monster... Feel free to improve it! Owen× 04:09, 26 November 2005 (UTC)

Thank you very much for your support of my RfA. Thanks, in part, to you, I am now an Administrator, and I pledge to use my newfound powers for good rather than evil. Thanks again!--Sean|Black 06:59, 26 November 2005 (UTC)


I noticed a user recreated this page with the same content after you deleted it. I added a speedy deletion notice, but it was removed. I thought you might want to delete it again. --JiFish(Talk/Contrib) 16:35, 27 November 2005 (UTC)

Thanks for the note, I see it's been deleted again now. Cheers. «»Who?¿?meta 18:19, 27 November 2005 (UTC)

Camp Lazlo[edit]

Blimey, give me a chance! ;) I was listing the AfD as you were writing - a process that takes a few minutes. My explaination about it is on the AfD itself. The issue is not with Camp Lazlo per se, but with the chronic fancruft and listcruft the article appears to be generating. Please feel free to comment on the AfD page, which you should now find to be working. Cheers. ➨ REDVERS 01:28, 28 November 2005 (UTC)

RE: blantant vandal tags[edit]

Yes - I agree. In some cases, adding the {{bv}} may have been a bit harsh. I do also use the {{test}} templates and will attempt to be more fair with the user talk page warnings in the future. I guess I just got a little upset from a long day today and went directly to the {{bv}} template since I had multiple tabs with talk pages open and was doing a copy and paste assembly line like warning method. I think in most cases, with a few exceptions, my choices in warning templates have been appropriate. Sorry! --Randy 01:59, 28 November 2005 (UTC)


On your new place! Hope everything works out with it. --Kbdank71 17:01, 28 November 2005 (UTC)
