February 2011[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. The recent edit you made to Wikipedia:Sandbox has been reverted, as it appears to be unconstructive. Use the sandbox for testing; if you believe the edit was constructive, ensure that you provide an informative edit summary. You may also wish to read the introduction to editing. Thank you.

I guess fighting vandalism with an automated tool is not always what its cracked up to be! The main problem here is your imitiation of another user's signature (Tide Rolls). This should not be done in the sandbox or anywhere else. --Diannaa (Talk) 04:24, 2 February 2011 (UTC)
I was not aware this was the case. I thought I could experiment in any way I wanted in the sandbox. (talk) 04:27, 2 February 2011 (UTC)
Impersonation, and fraudulent messages such as this one make clear that your intent was to mislead other users and to disrupt Wikipedia, not to experiment. --- Barek (talkcontribs) - 04:30, 2 February 2011 (UTC)
But is that not experimentation? I don't see how I was supposed to know that was prohibited, there don't appear to be any rules associated with editing the sandbox, other than making test edits or experimenting in the sandbox in the first place. (talk) 04:38, 2 February 2011 (UTC)
(edit conflict) Additionally, the false warning you gave at User talk: (now deleted, but still viewable by admins) which you also signed with the same user ID you had used on the sandbox - and repeatedly restoring the fake sandbox message, twice claiming in the edit summary that it was an "administrative edit". --- Barek (talkcontribs) - 04:44, 2 February 2011 (UTC)
But it was all experimenting. Which is encouraged in the sandbox no? (talk) 04:47, 2 February 2011 (UTC)
It was impersonation and fraud. That is intentional disruption, not "experimenting" as you are attempting to label it - and the edits to the other IP show the true intent was to disrupt. --- Barek (talkcontribs) - 04:49, 2 February 2011 (UTC)
I still don't understand how you can block me for edits to the sandbox. I didn't even remove the sanbox header thing. Okay, I shouldn't have made the edit to the IP talk page but other than that I haven't done anything wrong have I? (talk) 04:51, 2 February 2011 (UTC)
Obvious troll is obvious. --Diannaa (Talk) 04:55, 2 February 2011 (UTC)
How am I a troll? (talk) 04:57, 2 February 2011 (UTC)

Request reason:

My edits were in the sandbox, the page specifically set aside for experimental editing. How can I be blocked for editing here? I had no idea that it constituted vandalism. (talk) 04:27, 2 February 2011 (UTC)

Decline reason:

Per conversation above. Even in the sandbox, there are limits. — Daniel Case (talk) 05:07, 2 February 2011 (UTC)

If you want to make any further unblock requests, please read the guide to appealing blocks first, then use the {{unblock}} template again. If you make too many unconvincing or disruptive unblock requests, you may be prevented from editing this page until your block has expired.
