I saw your message on template welcomevandal, and I've reverted it back as I believe it was a constructive edit.-- (talk) 09:53, 21 September 2008 (UTC)

Why? In my eyes you only removed auto-singature without any reason. Can you please provide a reason? Maybe I am wrong. Regards, abf /talk to me/ 09:55, 21 September 2008 (UTC)

Your message

Is there a way to make people sort out the layout properly? A tag or something? Thanks (talk) 13:32, 21 September 2008 (UTC)

I am sorry, but I am not shure how it is here on enwp. On de: there is a quality-save-system. However yust writing "This is bad" on the top of an article is not the way. Try to ask at the Wikipedia:Help desk. Regards, abf /talk to me/ 13:35, 21 September 2008 (UTC)

Thankyou, I found it. Wikipedia:Template_messages/Cleanup is what I was after. Thankyou again. (talk) 13:45, 21 September 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for pointing this out to me :) abf /talk to me/ 13:48, 21 September 2008 (UTC)

Reverted entry for Yokosuka Naval Base

Can you please clarify why my revision was reverted. The article for Yokosuka Naval Base has no pertinent information, and is redundant, as the article CFAY covers the history and current information about the base, which is actually called CFAY. The revision I made was a redirect to the CFAY entry. Pinkyviolence (talk) 18:16, 21 September 2008 (UTC)

Sorry, seemed as if I had got the wrong buttom. Regards, abf /talk to me/ 18:18, 21 September 2008 (UTC)
So can I change it to a redirect again then? Pinkyviolence (talk) 18:20, 21 September 2008 (UTC)
I did yet. Sorry again, abf /talk to me/ 18:21, 21 September 2008 (UTC)

3RR violation

Nuvola apps important.svg You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on User_talk:Cunard. Note that the three-revert rule prohibits making more than three reversions on a single page within a 24 hour period. Additionally, users who perform a large number of reversions in content disputes may be blocked for edit warring, even if they do not technically violate the three-revert rule. If you continue, you may be blocked from editing. Please do not repeatedly revert edits, but use the talk page to work towards wording and content that gains a consensus among editors. If necessary, pursue dispute resolution. Edit war with Pinkyviolence (talk) 02:17, 22 September 2008 (UTC)

Please read before adding templates. this says I am allowed to revert obvious vandalism. And telling someone "fuck you" is for me obvious vandalism! abf /talk to me/ 06:18, 22 September 2008 (UTC)
Oh, so NOW you're an expert on the 3 revert rule. You sure weren't when [1] happened. So fuck you. Pinkyviolence (talk) 02:17, 22 September 2008 (UTC)
Hehe, yeah, I was not at that time. And can you please log in or stop using other users signatures, please? abf /talk to me/ 06:24, 22 September 2008 (UTC)
LOL! Look at his userpage, it actually tricked someone! :D64.230.7.84 (talk) 06:24, 22 September 2008 (UTC)
I do not know what you mean, but please stop messing me up if you do not have anything including any sense you can tell. abf /talk to me/ 06:26, 22 September 2008 (UTC)
What the heck is going on??? I never made any of those comments!!! I logged in today, only the 2nd day I've been registered, and it warned me to not make personal attacks?! I think someone is pretending to be me in an effort to troll this page. This site is starting to get frustrating. Pinkyviolence (talk) 11:50, 22 September 2008 (UTC)
Hi! The edits where made by a troll who faked your signature. I reportet him to WP:AN/I and the case is solved. abf /talk to me/ 12:38, 22 September 2008 (UTC)

The vandal that you warned this morning has been continuing to vandalize pages and has already received multiple warnings. Here are some other instances of vandalism: [2] [3] [4] [5]

I'm just letting you know, so that you can block that address or list it on WP:AIV if you want. --Politizer (talk) 14:06, 22 September 2008 (UTC)

Sorry, I am not a sysop, so I cant block him. You can report him on your own, because in my oppinnion Users should be reportet by the reverting user. abf /talk to me/ 14:10, 22 September 2008 (UTC)

Sole proprietorship

When reverting vandalism, you should be careful that your edits still do not contain any of the previously vandalized versions [6] [7] --Superflewis(talk) 13:22, 23 September 2008 (UTC)

see here. Regards, abf /talk to me/ 13:23, 23 September 2008 (UTC)


I walked off for 2 seconds and my child finds it funny to revert my apolidgy, i gave him a telling off and he wont do harm again (talk) 14:44, 23 September 2008 (UTC)J D

Ah, so your childs are vandalizing and you do not? abf /talk to me/ 14:45, 23 September 2008 (UTC)

I am am morily outraged that you would say that im vandalising i think this is a disgrace. My child Toby did little harm, i mean adding a full stop how bad is that (i read the edits) I do have an acount at my house but seeing this is my exwifes house. (i dont have custody, and we're friends)I went on here and was going add some imformation when my child walked in, 13 years of age, and started being silly. If you want my apolidgy here it is but You have no proof it was me!. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:53, 23 September 2008 (UTC)

I believe you. And you are able to stop your child from vandalizing. I am shure nothing will happen if your child does not continue. You can also say something as "It was not me but my son" on your talk. I am sorry, but I am not able to do more for you. Best regards, abf /talk to me/ 14:56, 23 September 2008 (UTC)

Its OK :) <- sorry if you cant use smileys but its ok, no worries, cause every little thing is gona be all right.Tht was a joke to show im happy not vandalism ok bye!.


MY CHILD MADE THE VANDALISM. Not really (just wanted to make fun of the obvious troll above). Sorry for the vandalism, though. (talk) 18:16, 23 September 2008 (UTC)

Oh dear

If my edit to Collingwood, Victoria appears unconstructive, then I suggest you check again. You might actually consider reverting your erroneous revert too. Format (talk) 05:10, 24 September 2008 (UTC)

Oh, I am very sorry for this edit. It loocked like vandalism to me and because I was not really awake (its 7am in my country and i just stood up), so I did not notice its a god edit. I apologize, I reverted myself and I hope you do not take this badly. Regards, abf /talk to me/ 05:14, 24 September 2008 (UTC)
No problem. Someone else just repeated your revert - so you are not alone Format (talk) 05:20, 24 September 2008 (UTC)
I welcomed him. Maybe he will read the given links. Regards, abf /talk to me/ 05:39, 24 September 2008 (UTC)

"Unconstructive editing"

Can you please explain why you believe my edit to Stephen Sondheim was unconstructive? I believe I added an important fact about his life that is mentioned nowhere else in the article, except in Categories. -- (talk) 21:09, 23 September 2008 (UTC)

I believe we all are grown up enough to see mentioning somebodys (even uncourced) possible homosexual tendencies in the first sentence of an article is unencyclopedic. If you can proove this with WP:SOURCES, you may add it somewhere down in the article at a part depending his personal life. Regards, abf /talk to me/ 05:01, 24 September 2008 (UTC)
He is in the category of "Gay Musicians" in Wikipedia, placed there not by me. But I'll accept your point that it shouldn't be mentioned in the first sentence since it's not a defining aspect. -- (talk) 00:32, 25 September 2008 (UTC)


I didn't realize I couldn't make my own Wikipedia page. I don't want to be in conflict of interest. Please delete the page. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Martinized (talkcontribs) 12:37, 25 September 2008 (UTC)

I cant delete anything (only sysops can) and I also only reverted a page-blanking of you. If you want to have a page deleted please read our guidelines and WP:CSD. Best regards, abf /talk to me/ 12:48, 25 September 2008 (UTC)
