userpage vandalism[edit]

It's a semi-common userbox on RC patroller's pages. An RC patroller will frequently stumble on a vandal-only account, start reverting all of that person's edits, and then be targeted for vandalism by that person. I haven't been doing RC patrolling for that long, but some people that have been patrolling for a year or more have had their pages vandalized dozens of times. Natalie 05:04, 15 February 2007 (UTC)

Information icon.svg

Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on Alabama Great Southern Railroad, by another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia.

List of Artists who have recorded at Abbey Road Studios[edit]

That split wasn't exactly what I had in mind (I had a template that would have made that entire list you made in your sandbox into five columns to reduce clutter, but anyways...), but I did notice the Chronological list of recordings made at Abbey Road Studios list. What I could do is merge both of these lists into one list that can be sortable by both date and band name (for example about how this works, see List of NES games, which does exactly what I am talking about). I'll try to get around to it when I can. Thank you, MuZemike 05:58, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

Ydjm[edit]

You did exactly the right thing when blanking the page Ydjm. Wikipedia will not tolerate pages meant solely to attack or insult real, living people, and by blanking a page containing such an attack you have guaranteed the edit summary of the deletion does not contain any part of the page's former contents. JIP | Talk 23:37, 28 November 2009 (UTC)

thank you, I will keep that in mind when considering blanking pages in the future.

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Tōru Sakai[edit]

Hi Andyzweb - just to let you know that I think something went awry during the creation of the above AfD: your nomination rationale is missing. Gonzonoir (talk) 14:07, 11 December 2009 (UTC)

Hi Gonzonoir what would I need to do to correct the issue, I am relatively new to the AfD process, in fact I think this is my first Nomination.
Where you put {{text}} on the AfD page (Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Tōru Sakai), you should instead provide a reason why you think the page should be deleted. Kind regards, SpitfireTally-ho! 20:50, 11 December 2009 (UTC)

Looking for a mentor?[edit]

{{helpme}} I am looking to take the article Hammond Organ and make it a candidate for featured article or something like that. What needs to be worked on to get it to that point? andyzweb (talk) 14:54, 5 January 2010 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Adopt-a-User details how to find yourself a mentor; Wikipedia:Featured article criteria details what's necessary to have an article rated as featured; there's a similar, less demanding process for Good Article, and for any article you can ask for a WP:Peer review.

no fucking clue[edit]

I have no clue where to go. There are just too many hoops chutes and ladders in order to do anything around here I want to report User talk:24.72.1.68 for repeated vandalism. so {{adminhelp}} please.

WP:AIV is the appropriate route, but I've gone ahead and blocked anonymous editing from that IP address for a good long while. Cheers, Jclemens (talk) 17:43, 11 January 2010 (UTC)
