November 2012[edit]

Hello, I'm Spencer. I wanted to let you know that I removed an external link you added to the page Grasp of the Emerald Claw, because to me it seemed inappropriate for an encyclopedia. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page, or take a look at our guidelines about links. Thanks,SpencerT♦C 04:54, 21 November 2012 (UTC)

I have no idea why you think that's spam... it is product informaiton on the publisher's website, which seems perfectly viable to me. 24.12.74.21 (talk) 04:56, 21 November 2012 (UTC)

Social Security Death Index[edit]

Keep up the great work with these fantastic additions! Anything you can find for Ogden Whitney, whose death date here is given only as "1970s"? --Tenebrae (talk) 04:15, 3 March 2013 (UTC)

From a google search, I can tell you that seems like one of the great unsolved mysteries of comics. SSDI does not seem to be of any help there, quite possibly because his death was never reported to them. I'd finding somewhere between 5 and 10 percent of people I search for are not in the SSDI. 24.12.74.21 (talk) 05:56, 3 March 2013 (UTC)
Well, you're still doing fantastic work. God bless you, man! You're a great contributor! --Tenebrae (talk) 01:58, 5 March 2013 (UTC)

Just wondering...[edit]

If you don't want to answer this question, that is fine, but I was curious: have you ever considered registering an account? Reason being is that I recognize you due to the edits that you do on Dungeons & Dragons-related articles, and I wouldn't mind having a more consistent method in which to keep in contact with you to discuss some of these edits I have been performing on these articles. Steel1943 (talk) 05:35, 13 March 2013 (UTC)

I don't mind being just an IP for now, but thanks for considering me. I try to be helpful. You can always reach me here. 24.12.74.21 (talk) 05:48, 13 March 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the fix[edit]

Thanks for fixing this typo. I don't know how that happened. Sven Manguard Wha? 22:54, 17 March 2013 (UTC)

No problem, glad to be of help. :) 24.12.74.21 (talk) 03:21, 18 March 2013 (UTC)

Regarding your recent edits ... changing cleanup messages[edit]

Hello 24.12.74.21,

I know we've talked before, and I know you've been doing some good work on quite a few articles here ... but I'm trying to understand quite a few of your recent edits. On over twenty articles, you have done one of two types of edits: 1) removing the date parameter on cleanup tags, making bots tag cleanup tags with this month and year; the year is supposed to remain when it was originally posted so that editors can know how long the issue has been happening, and remove the entire tag when they feel the issue is resolved. Or 2) changing several Dungeons & Dragons related articles cleanup tags from {{primarysources}} to {{refimprove}} ([1]), which on the majority of those articles, the {{primarysources}} tag would be more accurate since most of the references are Dungeons & Dragons-related books and published works. Also, in one case ([2]), I noticed that you removed a {{unreferenced}} tag with a {{refimprove}} tag when the article clearly has no references. Is there a purpose for changing around the cleanup tags as so? Steel1943 (talk) 02:38, 3 April 2013 (UTC)

Hey, I'm sorry if I did something wrong, just trying to clean up some old tags. 24.12.74.21 (talk) 11:58, 3 April 2013 (UTC)

Default sort[edit]

Please do not delete default sorts from articles. This is needed for the organization of categories. Thank you. Donner60 (talk) 02:45, 26 April 2013 (UTC)

Those were misplaced. 24.12.74.21 (talk) 02:56, 26 April 2013 (UTC)
You are correct. I am sorry I was not more alert to that. It was not actually a default sort, not a proper one at least. Good catch. Donner60 (talk) 17:24, 26 April 2013 (UTC)

June 2013[edit]

Information icon Please do not add inappropriate external links to Wikipedia, as you did to Molydeus. Wikipedia is not a collection of links, nor should it be used for advertising or promotion. Inappropriate links include, but are not limited to, links to personal websites, links to websites with which you are affiliated, and links that attract visitors to a website or promote a product. See the external links guideline and spam guideline for further explanations. Because Wikipedia uses the nofollow attribute value, its external links are disregarded by most search engines. If you feel the link should be added to the page, please discuss it on the associated talk page rather than re-adding it.  
Your edit here to Molydeus was reverted by an automated bot that attempts to remove links which are discouraged per our external links guideline. The external link(s) you added or changed (http://d20npcs.wikia.com/wiki/D&D_Named_Demon_Project#Molydeus) is/are on my list of links to remove and probably shouldn't be included in Wikipedia. If the external link you inserted or changed was to an external Wiki, then please note that these links should generally not be included (see 'links to avoid' #12).
If you were trying to insert an external link that does comply with our policies and guidelines, then please accept my creator's apologies and feel free to undo the bot's revert. However, if the link does not comply with our policies and guidelines, but your edit included other, constructive, changes to the article, feel free to make those changes again without re-adding the link. Please read Wikipedia's external links guideline for more information, and consult my list of frequently-reverted sites. For more information about me, see my FAQ page. Thanks! --XLinkBot (talk) 02:48, 5 June 2013 (UTC)
If this is a shared IP address, and you didn't make the edit, please ignore this notice.

Monica Rambeau[edit]

I am re-adding the information that Monica Rambeau will be taking the codename Spectrum to the character's article. If you take more than a cursory glance at the Newsarama article cited, scroll back through the Twitter feed, and load more tweets back to the beginning of the interview, you will see the following, three of which are quotations from Mighty Avengers writer Al Ewing:

In addition to those in the teasers, Monica Rambeau, Falcon, and a Ronin are in the lineup of Mighty Avengers. (https://twitter.com/NewsaramaLIVE/status/343037347132235776)
"Monica is rejoining the superhero set, rebranding herself. Her new name is Spectrum" - Ewing "It sounded scifi, which appealed to me." (https://twitter.com/NewsaramaLIVE/status/343037498085224450)
"She's the field leader of the Mighty Avengers. It's fun to have her in that position again. Her powers are very unique." -Ewing (https://twitter.com/NewsaramaLIVE/status/343037623733989377)
"I love the character, how her powers work, her history. She's one I'm looking forward to most" - Ewing on Monica "Spectrum" Rambeau (https://twitter.com/NewsaramaLIVE/status/343037909286408192)

I'm sorry that I repeated some information already present in the article, but try not to dismiss an edit out of hand without making a better effort to check the citation provided. -- Pennyforth (talk) 04:35, 8 June 2013 (UTC)

Sorry, I used the search function on the page and Spectrum did not come up. Maybe the search did not include the part you were looking at. If you include some of these urls to the twitter statuses, it would be easier for people to find. 24.12.74.21 (talk) 05:17, 8 June 2013 (UTC)

Disruptive editing on redirected articles[edit]

Please stop restoring articles that had previously been redirected/merged per consensus decisions at WP:AfD, as you did with Molydeus.

Sure, consensus can change, however you cannot overrule a previous consensus decision all by yourself, without even notifying any of the people who formed the consensus, or the closing administrator. Policy is that changes to a previously established consensus should be proposed by discussion first. On the long term, constantly ignoring previous consensuses can be seen as disruptive editing.

Now, as another user has noted above, it is very likely, per your edit pattern and interest for D&D, that you are also behind IP 129.33.19.254. Seeing how, as IP 129.33.19.254, you've been warned several times about not restoring articles redirected per consensus, I'm afraid that you could be making use of your dynamic IPs from Chicago in order to continue your non-consensual edits away from scrutiny.

I note you've been asked several times (both under 129.33.19.254, and this IP) to register an account, and given the nature of your edits I find it particularly concerning that you've repeatedly ignored it. You may be find with being an IP, but others are not.

Note that this is my final warning: you should register an account, and above all stop restoring articles that had previously been redirected/merged per AfD. If I find any more of these non-consensual edits from 129.33.19.254 or any of your Chicago IP, I will report you at WP:ANI and your main IP may be blocked from editing.Folken de Fanel (talk) 09:54, 9 June 2013 (UTC)

Your accusation that these two IP addresses are the same person is baseless. They geolocate to entirely different states in the U.S. Furthermore, no one is obligated to register with an account, and making demands that they do is inappropriate. —Torchiest talkedits 13:08, 9 June 2013 (UTC)
No, they're not baseless. They (as well as other Chicago IPs) both edit the same type of articles (D&D and comics), edit the same article with the same pattern, and sometime with the same wording in edit summaries. If you read the other threads of this talk page, you'll see I'm not the only one suspecting this, and the IP all but confirmed it. It is not inappropriate to suggest to register an account when there is possibility that the user took advantage of dynamic IPs to avoid scrutiny of his/her edits.Folken de Fanel (talk) 15:19, 9 June 2013 (UTC)
What you linked to says nothing about multiple IP addresses. Therefore, your demand remains inappropriate. —Torchiest talkedits 16:31, 9 June 2013 (UTC)
I don't think asking the same person to stop making disruptive edits is inappropriate. For more details see User_talk:129.33.19.254.Folken de Fanel (talk) 16:33, 9 June 2013 (UTC)
OK, yeah, I made a mistake. Sorry about that. I will be careful not to restore any articles redirected from AFD in the future. 24.12.74.21 (talk) 12:00, 10 June 2013 (UTC)
