IRC[edit]

I was only warned about mentioning it again no response. --Adam1213 Talk+|WWW 13:18, 2 November 2005 (UTC)

Radiant's vote[edit]

CC - I took off this vote, as I notice that his hurdle is simply that he mistook me for an admin, not that he thinks I should be one. - brenneman(t)(c) 13:40, 2 November 2005 (UTC)

Man I sweat blood over the answers to those questions! And the only comment on them was "once they are answered..." Pooh. - brenneman(t)(c) 01:42, 3 November 2005 (UTC)
I think I am not required to revaluate my vote the instant you make your posts. RfA's last so long for a reason. Geez. -- Cat chi? 02:31, 3 November 2005 (UTC)
  • Umm, I was kidding. Because mine didn't. One of the things pointed out to me was that I need to be a bit more explicit in my posts, so I'll take this as another example of me needing to work on that. But I do love the word "Geez". - brenneman(t)(c) 03:06, 3 November 2005 (UTC)

Moved from User talk:Cool Cat/IRC Bot[edit]

How does it work? How do you run it? --dfrankow 15:17, 2 November 2005 (UTC)

The bot is a MIRC script. You do not need to run the code to use it, you can simply join #wikipedia-en-vandalism channel on irc.freenode.net server and start using the bot. -- Cat chi? 16:54, 2 November 2005 (UTC)

165.111.2.149[edit]

[22:07:07] <Computer2> IP already blacklisted. Block: Special:Blockip/165.111.2.149 Contribs: Special:Contributions/165.111.2.149 Block log: http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special%3ALog&type=block&user=&page=User%3A165.111.2.149

I think he deserves a longer block, hey why not tag along on irc? ;) -- Cat chi? 20:08, 2 November 2005 (UTC)

I concur, you may increase the block if you see fit. I err on the side of caution for proxies. As to IRC, I usually find it distracting or unproductive (meaning, no one talks to me :")... as I have a TV tuner in my computer I can deal with one distraction in the background at a time. I will certainly reconsider my IRC and proxy policy. :"D - RoyBoy 800 20:15, 2 November 2005 (UTC)
Oh I was talking about #wikipedia-en-vandalism a channel full of people dedicated to fight against vandalism (and a vandalism detection bot is running).
Sorry, I am not an admin, I cant do it myself :) -- Cat chi? 20:33, 2 November 2005 (UTC)

IRC/CVU issue[edit]

[03:23:57] <Jtkiefer> all I want done is for him to drop the issue,
to forget about ops and to continue like normal
[03:24:13] <Cool_Cat> can I copy that last line to his talk page?
[03:24:29] <Jtkiefer> yeah, sure

Jtkiefer, says he is ready to forget about this given you agree to forget about it.

You may feel the need to seek "justice", however it probably is in the best interest of wikipedia to drop the issue. IIRC you do not seek some sort of punishment for Jtkiefer so I also feel you want to be left alone and be able to fight vandalism in the channel w/o interference.

I say lets forget about the issue and deal with vandalism. This conflict only benefits vandals as it distracts us (you, Jtkiefer, me and anybody else involved) to some extent to focus on the big picture.

-- Cat chi? 01:44, 3 November 2005 (UTC)

What do you mean by IIRC

I dont really get some of what you said on my talk page but thanks for your message. --Adam1213 Talk+|WWW 05:38, 3 November 2005 (UTC)

Sorry for the confusion let me explain/summarise. I just feel you want a truce as much as he does. This matter as I see it can only be settled if forgotten.
IIRC stands for If I Recall Correctly. Just annother annoying irc abv. :) -- Cat chi? 12:54, 3 November 2005 (UTC)

Image:Klerck1.jpg[edit]

Warning sign

This image has no source information. This means that it has an unknown copyright status. Unless the copyright status is provided and a source is given, the image will be deleted seven days after the template was added.

Additionaly you should choose a more descriptive image name. Cat chi? 13:57, 3 November 2005 (UTC)

Hi, thank you for informing me. Please delete image. Thank you. — PM Poon 01:09, 4 November 2005 (UTC)
Are you sure? It would please me more if the image did sutvive. Do you recall where you got it from? -- Cat chi? 12:59, 4 November 2005 (UTC)

Hi Cool Cat, actually I was merely improving on the image, "Klerck.jpg", as stated in my notation. I did say the following: "Improvement of Klerck.jpg (currently in en:Wikipedia) using photoshop". The composition of the original image was, in my opinion, bad in that it had too much headroom. In any case, I am getting so much less attached to Wikipedia these days that I don't really care what they do to my contributions, LOL. — PM Poon 01:50, 5 November 2005 (UTC)

Well, I am not a deletionist. I think we can argue of a fair-use. The images Image:Klerck.jpg and Image:Klerck1.jpg look about the same. Can you tell my untrained eyses the diference? Is it sharper?
I understand that, I have also been dealing with rather annoying personalities on wiki, though I have no idea what your dispute is. I encourage you to stay with us. -- Cat chi? 09:07, 5 November 2005 (UTC)

Hi Cool Cat, you wrote: "The images Image:Klerck.jpg and Image:Klerck1.jpg look about the same. Can you tell my untrained eyses the diference? Is it sharper?"

Please go to the webpage: "Image:Klerck.jpg", and look at the file history. The original version, at the bottom, reads:

(del) (rev) 18:33, 4 July 2005 . . Dougmilbourne . . 113x150 (14482 bytes) (Kevin "Klerck" Ealy)

If you press on the date field, you will see the original version, where there is a lot of empty space above the guy's head.

I am actually a Photoshop enthusiast. Whenever I see any pictures that can benefit from Photoshop, I will improve on it. Unfortunately, when I used the "Upload a new version of this file" feature, it never seems to work. I recently found out that it does actually work, although not instanteously (I wonder why). That explains why I uploaded, using the "new version" feature twice. When it did not seem to work, I downloaded the image, using Klerck1.jpg, a new file name, and it works instanteously.

As for your kind encouragement, I must thank you very much. Since you are very candid with me, I will be very candid with you. Honestly, as a foreigner, I feel discriminated against by a few British and I am really cheesed off by them. I have stopped contributing for quite many days now as I am now in another website where my contributions are more appreciated. However, I will still drop by once a while. Thank you again for your encouragement. — PM Poon 11:33, 5 November 2005 (UTC)

Hmm, for disputes we have a dispute resolution process. It is slow, but it works. I also suffer from the special care of some people.
I know wikipedia could use more photoshop entusiasts.
Additionaly, I encourage you to take a look at Wikipedia:Counter Vandalism Unit, no one complains about people reverting vandalism (aside from vadals of whom are dealt with swiftly).
-- Cat chi? 12:03, 5 November 2005 (UTC)

Image:Photograph.sept1895.arp.750pix.jpg[edit]

Where did you get this image from, I am merely curious about the identity of these people. -- Cat chi? 04:48, 4 November 2005 (UTC)

These people are definitely in my family, on my side (not my wife's side). The picture was with a bundle of family photos left to me a few years ago by an aunt when she died. I scanned it into my computer. I think its a lovely pic, shame I'll probably never find out exactly who they were. Moral: always write the persons name on the back of a photo (the only thing on the back was the date). Thanks for your question - Adrian Pingstone 12:37, 4 November 2005 (UTC)
I see, I hate unresolved misteries, its like a novel that doesn't conclude. It indeed is a lovely pic. Another reason to construct a family tree :) -- Cat chi? 18:16, 4 November 2005 (UTC)

How to use Autosign[edit]

note: ` is ` with shift

  1. goto Preferences
  2. turn on raw signatures
  3. Make your nickname ````
  4. change --```` to --```
  5. edit it
  6. save it
  7. Optional chage your nickname to "" or what it used to be
  8. Optional put raw signatures to what it used to be

You get the sig sign but I think to use it you might need to do Edit pages may be made harder by this the solution for this problem is a section above it and a section below and tell people not to edit the entire page.

Or have the page with Template:Top-of-articles-name ~~~~ Template:Bottom-of-articles-name but this puts a lot of strain on the servers and you would need 3 pages for it. --Adam1213 Talk+|WWW 00:46, 5 November 2005 (UTC)

Recently created inapproproate user names[edit]

User:FUCK ARANDA56 TITOXD CAMBRIDGEBAYWEATHER, AND CURPS

User:JoanneB or Splash who should I fuck tonight

I thought I'd bring these to an admin's attention. PRueda29 18:50, 5 November 2005 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up, users are already blocked indefinately. BTW, I am not an admin :) -- Cat chi? 19:47, 5 November 2005 (UTC)

I chose you because i saw you had blocked a user... so I assumed you where. I thoughtm only admins could block users. PRueda29 19:52, 5 November 2005 (UTC)

No I did not block anyone. I am incapable to do so. -- Cat chi? 20:43, 5 November 2005 (UTC)
Ok, weird then; I must've clicked on the wrong username or something... sorry for the misunderstanding. PRueda29 18:01, 6 November 2005 (UTC)
Oh not an issue, I just wanted to make sure you go to the people with power by correcting the error, no harm done ;) -- Cat chi? 18:10, 6 November 2005 (UTC)

Thank you note[edit]

Hi Cool Cat, you are really cool. Honestly, I was surprised when you notified me of your intention to delete Klerck1.jpg. "Normally", no one does that, they just delete, which is fine to me too. What I didn't like is when some administrators or editors start throwing their weight around. I feel that in a community portal, administrators must double up as counsellors and not as hooligans, LOL. You have a high dose of EQ and I wish you well. — PM Poon 21:18, 5 November 2005 (UTC)

I am not an administrator and I can delete the files though I generally try to get templates to be marked to be sourced so they get tagged properly than risk getting deleted. I generally deal with vandalism since the users that cause me stress otherwise dont seem to interfere with it. -- Cat chi? 22:09, 5 November 2005 (UTC)

.[edit]

with your office page what does it mean if a user has a bat next to them (you should have it writen below) --Adam1213 Talk+ 12:25, 7 November 2005 (UTC)

Sorry I dont quite understand what are you trying to ask. :) -- Cat chi? 15:51, 7 November 2005 (UTC)
I havent used my office for ages, I made minor cleanups but havent quite used it, since I dont edit article namespace much anymore. -- Cat chi? 16:42, 7 November 2005 (UTC)
Oh I see what you mean. the images on my contacts thing are mental notes. I like to be able to quicckly look up who CVU members/admins and other people I may need rapid communication with. Regarding the bat image, take a look at: Goddess Relief Office. -- Cat chi? 16:47, 7 November 2005 (UTC)

Re: Atlas award[edit]

Someone already gave me one, but thanks for another one. Actually, the python program is quite shorter than expected. --AllyUnion (talk) 23:19, 7 November 2005 (UTC)

Well, shorter code implies a more pro programmer... ;) -- Cat chi? 10:43, 8 November 2005 (UTC)

CVU Award[edit]

I give you the CVU award for doing a great job with writing the bot and running it + being a very active user in the CVU but it would be good if you are on irc a little more....

CVU2.5.PNG Cool Cat gets the first Counter Vandalism Unit award for helping get rid of the rats and more.

Rajput article[edit]

You reverted the article Rajput to a biased and historically distorted version. May I ask why is it so and how do you feel that your edit is justified?

خرم Khurram 21:26, 8 November 2005 (UTC)

Hi, please have a read of Wikipedia:Vandalism and Wikipedia:Neutral Point of View. I do not care about the content of Rajput article, however I do care about the removal and addition of large amount of information disrupting wikipedia. My interest in that article does not go beyond that. -- Cat chi? 21:43, 8 November 2005 (UTC)

But that article that you removed was the one that almost all the editors agree upon but one and the one that you have posted is the one that contains the biased and historically distorted information. As a matter of fact you can judge this by the edits performed by different editors during the past few weeks. It can also be witnessed by reading at the corresponding talk page. I think your interest should be about the removal and addition of large amount of "Correct" information not the distorted one. Am I wrong?

خرم Khurram 21:59, 8 November 2005 (UTC)

Firstly, I did not remove any article. I added +8000 bytes with my edit on Rajput. I merely reverted someone removing 8000 bytes. As far as I care, removal of 8000 bytes with an edit summary "Shiv ,frankly do you have any suggestion or points for resolving this dispute, I'd b with you if you something sensible.HOWz that?". [1]
It is a topic I know nothing about. I monitor all of wikipedia just like any RC patroler.
Please use/promote legable edit summaries so other editors can easily tell exactly what you did on the edit. Adress wikipedia rather than a spesific user.
Tonikaku, "historically distorted information" sounds POV to me, but *meh* I really do not care. -- Cat chi? 00:09, 9 November 2005 (UTC)

I appreciate your desire to retain any useful information for the benefit of Wikipedia. Much of the historical information that User:Shivraj Singh continues to insert into the article has been moved to History of Rajputs, where it is presented in a less-hysterical and better edited fashion. Not much in the way of accurate content is lost by the removal of Shivraj Singh's edits, but much is gained in terms the article's neutrality and readability. Tom Radulovich 07:01, 9 November 2005 (UTC)

Oh I see whats going on now... Hmm... You seem to have it covered then. :) -- Cat chi? 07:10, 9 November 2005 (UTC)
All these users Taoo/Wisesabre etc and some self proclaimed moderators like Zora/Goethean etc are just pushing muslim agenda. I have provided a list of 61 books from top researchers and these guys want to operate without citations. I have asked them repeatedly on the talk page to point out, with citations, what is POV, anti muslim in my edits and no one has responded till date. They are pushing a history which is *only* accepted by muslims and not by even person about whom this page is i.e the rajputs from India. It is really funny that a small group of pakistani muslims are trying to write the history of hindu rajputs.
Wikipedia has become a contest in outshouting the other. "Correct" version seems to be dependent on who has more numbers and these muslims are playing this game well. I will grant that Tom has some knowledge on the subject but not very deep.
You should keep an eye out for these users and help prevent muslim POV psuhing.
Shivraj Singh 17:42, 10 November 2005 (UTC)
Hi, I understand your concerns. You may want to seek assitance from Wikipedia:Mediation, I try to stay away from POV disputes. -- Cat chi? 12:30, 11 November 2005 (UTC)
I can understand not getting involved but on one side we have references and citations and on the other we have none. Can we have bad scholarship on wikipedia where a very well referenced work is edited by a group who continuously refuses to provide any citations for there edits? Shivraj Singh 04:43, 12 November 2005 (UTC)

office[edit]

I am one of the 4* people on your office page that is not an admin... Thanks for putting me on it. --Adam1213 Talk+ 06:21, 9 November 2005 (UTC)

Actually a good protion of the people were not admins when I /put them among contacts/met them. :) -- Cat chi? 06:53, 9 November 2005 (UTC)

Can you help me with my user page. I want the background of my links table to be the same colour as your cheatsheet border on your office page. (the gold colour...) also to make the table a little wider. You did I great job last time you helped with my user page so I thought you could do a great job again... --Adam1213 Talk+ 07:05, 9 November 2005 (UTC)

I will gladly help however, I am about to zoom out, I'll get back to you on the first opertunity :) -- Cat chi? 07:08, 9 November 2005 (UTC)

We can, but number of members should not be made a big deal in my view. We, the CVU, kick ass, no need to graph it. :) -- Cat chi? 10:33, 10 November 2005 (UTC)

Ah glad to hear you are somewhere. :) -- Cat chi? 12:27, 11 November 2005 (UTC)

Trials and Tribulations[edit]

Cool_Cat, I've just read some of your User Page and some of the details of your recent trials and tribulations. My gut feeling as a relatively new user on WP is that many in here and perhaps yourself have become "addicted" to this place and have let it replace real life. Any thoughts on this? User: Barry Wells, November 10, 2005. Current IRC nick "LabattLaBall."

Comon side effect of wikipedia. Some what an accurate analysis but at times wikipedia had became unbareable for me. I do have a real life, wikipedia is a part of it. -- Cat chi? 12:24, 11 November 2005 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Thanks for the award. I finaly have an award!!! --Adam1213 Talk+ 01:03, 13 November 2005 (UTC)

Do realise best editors often don't get the recognition they deserve as everyone knows how notable they are. Few people will doubt David Gerards role in vandal fighting, yet noone rains him barnstars. ;) -- Cat chi? 16:36, 24 November 2005 (UTC)

IRC ProbeCom bot[edit]

Could you add a feature to /msg users the filtered edits for a particular user under probation? eg, have the bot /msg Marudubshinki all Onefortyone's edits, so they don't get lost in the clutter of the channel, since it seems to be doubling as a discussion of MentCom and the place the bot deposits its edit warnings. --Maru (talk) Contribs 03:09, 13 November 2005 (UTC)

Also: could you change the "pro" command to "probe" or at least alias "probe"? I'd greatly appreciate that. Likewise, I would be gratified and amused if you could make the 'access denied' message "I'm sorry, FOO. I'm afraid I can't do that." instead of the current "I cannot comply..." --Maru (talk) Contribs 06:51, 13 November 2005 (UTC)

bot plans...[edit]

I have managed to get cmd to connect to irc. I could connect to the recent changes list and get the url's of articles, I could program something to download them, scan them for certaint words and post a message if any of the words specified were found...

I have autoit getting the last thing from the log file and I have it sending to it. I could use any other client instead as long as it has logging, (just about.)

I use a command that sends text to a window and I have to have the info on the window to know which one to send to. If I dont use this command it needs to grab input...

--Adam1213 Talk+ 13:55, 13 November 2005 (UTC)

User:Kawaii Neko[edit]

Cool Cat, do you know Kawaii Neko (talkcontribs)? He tried to do some well-meaning but inappropriate things with the redirects from your old username (User:Coolcat)–which I have repaired–and has adopted the layout and formatting of your user pages for his own.

I've asked him to at least remove your name from the pages–he did a copy-paste–you might want to keep an eye on this user. Is it someone you know? TenOfAllTrades(talk) 17:52, 14 November 2005 (UTC)

Hmm that was me registering usernames for posible imposteration, and discovered how I could use templates. :) -- Cat chi? 19:14, 14 November 2005 (UTC)
Thank you for watching my back and keep up the good work. Sorry for the rather short previous reply...
The reason I am using is because of the issue with inter wiki-redirects not working properly. So I thought using the templates to create dupes of myself for people tring to link to my userpage from other wikis. I dono, its not the best way to do it but, I am not sure what an alternative could be. I am open to suggestions... -- Cat chi? 14:32, 17 November 2005 (UTC)

Transcluding user and user talk pages[edit]

Welcome!

Hello とある白い猫/Archive/2005/11, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are a few good links for newcomers:

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! Please sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically produce your name and the date. If you have any questions, check out Wikipedia:Where to ask a question or ask me on my talk page. Again, welcome!  TenOfAllTrades(talk) 17:48, 14 November 2005 (UTC)

Transclusion of user pages[edit]

I noticed that you changed the redirects for User:Coolcat and User talk:Coolcat (that pointed to the new user name, User:Cool Cat) into transclusions of User:Cool Cat and User talk:Cool Cat.

I've reverted your changes and restored the redirects. Using transclusion in this situation causes a number of problems. First, the transcluded content is not updated on the page that refers to it until the referencing page is edited—the referencing page will fall out of date and out of sync with the transcluded page. Second, for a User talk page, an editor who uses the 'add section' button (the little + symbol) to leave a message will end up adding the section to the wrong talk page. Consequently, the new username (Cool Cat) won't be notified that a message has been left on the Coolcat talk page. TenOfAllTrades(talk) 17:48, 14 November 2005 (UTC)

Regarding your own user pages, please edit them so that they no longer identify you as Cool Cat. It's probably quite flattering for him that you've adopted his style and layout for your user pages, but it will be confusing to other editors to leave his name on them. TenOfAllTrades(talk) 17:50, 14 November 2005 (UTC)

Talk:Albert Einstein[edit]

Hi, was there some confusion about what I was doing? I just archived the discussion (see the link at top) and fixed a font problem caused by one user's incorrectly coded signature.---CH (talk) 22:35, 14 November 2005 (UTC)

Sorry, sorry, sorry... However the signature issue is taking place wikipedia-wide, something appears to be broken as multiple users whose signatures otherwise worked are experiencing problems. -- Cat chi? 22:46, 14 November 2005 (UTC)

Vandals[edit]

Hi. I just wanted to say you have the best userpage I've ever seen. I just want to know, why on earth does it keep getting vandalized?(P.S. speaking of which, someone vandalized the Green Bay Packers page. Would you mind reverting it please? I don't know to fix a big mess like that. Thanks)--D-Day 23:06, 14 November 2005 (UTC)

Thank you! The page you mentioned is already fixed.
The reason my userpage gets vandalised is probably because of my effort to remove vandalism from wikipedia, some vandals dont like getting reverted apperantly. :)
For further use: The way to fix vandalism is through page history. You can compare versions and click on the prefered version :) -- Cat chi? 23:47, 14 November 2005 (UTC)

Signpost[edit]

"Cool Cat also worried that unbanning these users might encourage vandals. To help with the supervision, Cool Cat has developed a bot that shows each edit by an editor under mentorship."

Is there any place I can take a look at the stuff this bot finds? - Mgm|(talk) 10:55, 15 November 2005 (UTC)

Oh sure, #wikipedia-probation on irc.freenode.net :) -- Cat chi? 11:00, 15 November 2005 (UTC)

Thanks Cool Cat[edit]

But there is nothing surprising in correcting grammar when I see them. Fad (ix) 01:43, 17 November 2005 (UTC)

True but cleaning articles from spelling and grammer errors (copy editing) should be encouraged on every opertunity.
If you have the time, I welcome you to "copyedit" my userpage and/or this article Oh My Goddess!

Hi Cool Cat. You IRC bot is a great tool, but I have some suggestions. It is not possible to add an user to blacklist (only IP's are accepted) - can you fix it? Is it possible to get full list of watched pages/whitelisted and blacklisted users? I also would like to know when this bot reports wheeler (we had one case on Wikibooks, but I wasn't warching the bot so I don't know if it reacted properly). BTW, you have registered #wikibooks-en-vandalism channel at FreeNode, but it does not have ChanServ and Wikibooks users cannot f.e. change topic of the channel. I don't know FreeNode well, can you make #wikibooks-en-vandalism be like #wikipedia-en-vandalism? --User:Derbeth talk 19:34, 17 November 2005 (UTC)

Edit analysis chart per your request[edit]

Star of life.svg

Sorry for the delay; I've done the graph for you. Your use of edit summaries is 28% overall. First 500 edits was 25%, last 500 was 39%. Your average edits per day is 49, and stable (not changed much since July or so). Your peak # of edits on a given day was 327 on April 1, 2005. You've had eight other days in excess of 200. You have contributed something on 85% of the days available since you started editing on February 4, 2005. I conclude; you're a nutcase and need psychological help for your addiction. More serious medical symptoms may set in with kidney failure due to not going to the bathroom when your body demands, acid reflux due to not eating, severe loss of weight due to same, severe repetitive stress symptoms most notably in the hands and wrists, and early onset of arthritis most likely in the wrists. I won't give you any more charts until the twitching stops. :) All the best, --Durin 15:17, 18 November 2005 (UTC)

Hello. I'm just letting you know that PRueda29 Ptalk29 is on a Wikibreak. In his absence, I'm watching his watchlist and other stuff. If you can spare the time take a look at his watchlist (on his user or my talk page) and help keep things in order by watching some of those. Thanks, :-) --hydnjo talk 04:19, 21 November 2005 (UTC)

Hi Cool Cat,

Thank you very much for your support on my RfA. I was both surprised and delighted about the amount of support votes and all the kind words! If I can ever help with anything or if you have any comments about my actions as an admin, please let me know! Regards, JoanneB 14:06, 21 November 2005 (UTC)

#wikipedia-it-vandalism[edit]

Hi Coolcat, the chan is really great! I have a little request, can you whitelist it:Utente:ZeroBot since it is a bot belonging to it:Utente:Paginazero (admin on it.wiki). He is using the bot to insert articles about films and they get detected as possible copyvio, but they're not and it's hard to see the real possible vandalism messages. Thanks a lot. --Cruccone 23:30, 23 November 2005 (UTC)

Done ;) -- Cat chi? 00:53, 27 November 2005 (UTC)

Oh My Goddess![edit]

Hey, I am a bit overwhelmed on how to go on with this article. Suggestions? -- Cat chi? 18:57, 23 November 2005 (UTC)

Hmm, we need recaps on episodes 13 up to 24, plus a spoken word version of this article is required because the old version is obloste and computerised (it is on the article's talk page if you need more details). Umm, thats all i can consider at the moment that won't make the artcle biased or overloaded. --Dynamo_ace 19:19, 23 November 2005 (UTC)
Ok, I'll get 13 - 24 done, I really have been slacking off from doing that primarily because of the ex-arbcom case taking too much of (all of) my time.
Tonikaku, spoken version has to wait till we have all 24 episodes summerised. I do not want to rush it ;). It takes me about 20 minutes to do a single episode (as each ep is that long :P).
We need the "movie" expanded. An hour and a half long movie cant be summerised to a paragraph that small :). Can you do that for me? -- Cat chi? 16:22, 24 November 2005 (UTC)
Sorry, i only know the TV series and i have only read the first 5 issues of the magna. Anything relating to the OVA and Movie i can't do, primarly because i don't want to watch it due to it feeling like a rushed cash-in. -Dynamo_ace 17:47, 24 November 2005 (UTC)
Movie is realy stand alone, it is not detached from the plot. I also refuse to watch the OVA, at least I hope to last till season 2 which is expected to air in about a year or more, given there is no information weather there will be a season 2 or not. I really do not understand the logic of Anime companies... -- Cat chi? 17:56, 24 November 2005 (UTC)

Hey is it possible for you to add a link to your talk page on your sig? Thanks. -- Cat chi? 16:23, 24 November 2005 (UTC)

As for the link to the talk page,hmm, maybe i will get on to that soon.-Dynamo_ace 17:47, 24 November 2005 (UTC)
Its easy, just go to preferences and check the "raw signature" box and Type: [[User:Dynamo ace|Dynamo_ace]] [[User talk:Dynamo ace|Talk]] and save, any sig you create afterwards will have the talk link. Of course there is no reason not to throw in a few html tags like my sig :) -- Cat chi? 17:57, 24 November 2005 (UTC)

Need a second opion[edit]

We have a anon vandal who keeps on reducing the quility of the article by causing the following edit shown in this link:

http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Dead_or_Alive_%28video_game%29&curid=799747&diff=29148017&oldid=29125979

The vandal uses 3 different IPs and if i revert the article for the third time i may violate the 3RR rule. I need your opion on the article. -Dynamo_ace Talk

Hmm, is this an alternative spelling? I would be hard pressed to call this vandalism. It looks like just another revert war... ;) -- Cat chi? 18:19, 24 November 2005 (UTC)
Oh thanks for the link... -- Cat chi? 18:21, 24 November 2005 (UTC)

my vandalism reverter and warner[edit]

I will soon get my vandalism reverter and warner working really well in a way that you can still do things while it is running and also fix a small problem in it after I made an inprovement on a part of it to speed it up. I will also add to an irc client that I made some things to be more integrated with the bot, like buttons for next article, revert, revert + warn, revert + warn + add to bots blacklist and say that an article has been reverted...

Thanks for the comment before. --Adam1213 Talk + 05:02, 25 November 2005 (UTC)

Bot[edit]

When the message comes up saying: "Large new page by IP, possible copy vio" it creates a link under "Diff:" like for example: "http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_One_Where_Dr._Ramoray_Dies&diff=next&oldid=" which is pointless, because it leads to a non-existent page.

Blocked for 24h[edit]

For blindly reverting Karl Meier (without even reading the diffs), I'm forced to block you for 24h.

After promising to be good and stop following KM, I've set the block to 3 hours. It's also to be noted that Davenbelle was warned several times (like when he opposed your RFA). Redwolf24 (talk) Attention Washingtonians! 21:55, 27 November 2005 (UTC)

Well, it was ment to be a joke, it was to in a way "protest" a number of wikiprojects seeking "decency", etc... If you really want to sign up... go for it. Since Jimbo Wales also finds it amusing thats why it still exists. We are not on a Jihad against Jimbos beard, no. :) -- Cat chi? 17:05, 28 November 2005 (UTC)

Warning to Karl Meier and Cool Cat[edit]

I shall block you both if I catch you edit warring any more as you have done on Kurdistan Workers Party and Kurdistan. I am warning you both. This has nothing to do with the arbitration case or the mentorship, it has to do with the disruptive behavior of both of you. --Tony Sidaway|Talk 07:59, 28 November 2005 (UTC)

Sorry[edit]

"It is suspected that this user may be a sock puppet or impersonator of an Extraterrestrial.
Please refer to a Conspiracy theory for evidence."

- Well, its obvious the edvidence is substantial, as well as it backs up consensus pior to UFU sightings. As such, I have to agree- you are a sockpuppet of aliens. Of course, that means, that as a sockpuppet, we'll have to trace you back to the sockpuppeteer that pulls your strings, right..? =) -MegamanZero19:12 29,November 2005 (UTC)

Something else for you to fix (hehe)[edit]

I presume it is your bot running in #wikpedia-en-vandalism (19:53, 29 November 2005 (UTC)) - There is a fault with the "userparse" thing or whatever it is called. For example: [[Special:Log/newusers]]: Warning! "[[User:Dothackangel]]" has a nick containing the flag word: "hack" Block: http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Blockip&ip= As you can see the link doesn't go to the right destination.

Semi-pro (again!)[edit]

Hey there, Cool Cat, I noticed you were one of only two (!) users who pushed for {{VotesforSemiprotect}} and I'm here to tell you that a couple users and myself have been trying to get this proposal re-looked at/passed. I believe I got the origional idea from you (about the time when I was getting serious with my edits), and therefore have you to thank in terms of getting this off the ground. If you wouldn't mind weighing in at Wikipedia:Semi-protection policy, that would be muy appreciated. Thanks in advance, Mysekurity 05:34, 30 November 2005 (UTC)

Assistance[edit]

Cool Cat, may I request some tips and tricks-of-the-trade regrading adminship? ...Would you be as so kind to help me on my quest to (eventually) become an admin..? I think I'd contribute well to the other users of our fair community, and I have read the articles on adminship all at least twice. Also, could you look at my contributions, discussions, etc. and tell me your humble opinion of me as a user in wikipedia...? Any criticism would be quite helpful. Normally, I'd be asking Tony, but he's kinda busy right now. -MegamanZero 23:41 30,November 2005 (UTC)

I failed to achieve adminship access with two trials. I no longer seek adminship. Reasons are:
  1. I do not care about/understand wiki-politics (I am here to merely write/expand an encyclopedia).
  2. no one explained me why they opposed my RfA to the point of leaving wikipedia if I were adminised.
  3. people are being dicks and are torturing me by taunting with "do this or I will oppose your next rfa" or "that comment is why you arent an admin".
Threfore I do not seek adminship, it would however make my vandal fighting efforts easier but it is serriously not worth my time.
Hence I am a very bad person to talk to for advice. Any advice I may give to you or if people think I am helping you that may geportise your adminship effort.
Regretfully, I cannot be of any help to you either way. :( -- Cat chi? 12:31, 1 December 2005 (UTC)
Somehow, I find that hard to believe. You seem like a nice enough guy, as well as having the long-term goal of improving wikipedika in mind. You also seem to have a knack for honesty, something I find admirable. All you need too do is wash your mouth out with soap, and you'll go far. =) -MegamanZero
Well, believe it or not, thats how it is... -- Cat chi? 16:33, 1 December 2005 (UTC)
That's too bad....I think people should get to know you better before making making assumptions like that. However, if its any assumption, I believe you are a good wikipedian and I thought (still do) you could be of help. Besides, anyone with a username like Cool Cat can't be all that bad!-MegamanZero
Advice I can safely give are:
  1. Revert vandalism (RC patrol)
  2. Do NOT touch articles such as Armenian Genocide
  3. Hope no one you met does any of the items listed on WP:ABF.
-- Cat chi? 18:27, 1 December 2005 (UTC)
  • Thanks! But why not touch articles like Armenian Genocide..? And why avoid people who do things on WP:ABF...? Just curious.-MegamanZero 20:58 1,December 2005 (UTC)
    Since I touched that controversial article, several people made my wikipedia exerience miserable, at several occasions I had seriously considered leaving. For their horrid behaviour I am held responsible in the minds of several users. It's just how wiki-politics works, I dont claim to have an understanding of it. Thats the best explanation I can come up with. I do not think it should make any logical sense tho.
    If people are ABF, they must have a reason right? :)
    Tonigaku, controversial are like the sun if you get to close to them you only end up getting burnt. Even if you leave such articles alone for months you will still be a "POV Pusher" 12,000 edits later. -- Cat chi? 19:04, 1 December 2005 (UTC)
  • I see. In another note, I looked at this, and it was quite interesting...may I inquire why those two were stalking you and why you have been designated mentors..? You do not seem like the type to cause trouble, my friend.-MegamanZero 23:14 1,December 2005 (UTC)
    I do not know... They either sincerely saw me as a threat to wikipedia (Hawthorne's: Road to hell is paved with good obsessions) or they enjoy anoying others. Although I hope its not the latter, I cant rule it out either. -- Cat chi? 21:16, 1 December 2005 (UTC)
  • Indeed. I agree with that! -MegamanZero
    You may want to not copy an RfAr page... :) -- Cat chi? 21:35, 1 December 2005 (UTC)
  • I believe its a very interesting conversation; and furthurmore, a perfect example of how not to act on wikipedia. Hopefully, it'll help in my learning process of becoming an admin. BTW, How do you think I stack up for the position...?-MegamanZero 0:14 2,December 2005 (UTC)
