Hello! Welcome to my talk page!

Please feel free to to leave me a message, whether it's informing me of something I screwed up, just to say hello, or anything else! I won't WP:BITE!

I have a few requests that I hope you'll respect while posting here:

  1. First and above all, be civil.
    • If you don't agree with an action I made—be it reverted you and left a warning, marked your page for deletion, or anything else—please be calm and polite. I am a reasonable man, and we'll straighten it out a lot quicker without screaming and name calling.
  2. Please sign your posts with four tildes (~~~~)
  3. Please start new conversations at the bottom.
  4. I generally like to keep conversations together.
    • If you post here, I'll reply here and leave you a message informing you of my reply.
    • If I leave you a message on your talk page, I'll keep watching it, but if you want to make sure I notice it quickly, leave me a {{talkback}} template (although not necessary).
      • I'll admit, I don't always keep conversations together, although I try to. If we separate the messages, no big deal, I'll probably go back and cross post here.

Since that is out of the way, please click here and leave a message!

Guess what?[edit]

Look here. Up to five inches expected. Started around 3:45 AM and we already have about an inch. Amaury plus that equals super happy. Have a look at the hourly and ten-day as well (and click the view next links, too!) because awesome! There's also a radar if you scroll down when Today is selected to give you a more accurate idea.

@Amaury: Nothing wrong with a little white on the ground for the holidays :) I hope you enjoy it! Here in TN, it doesn't like we'll be getting any for a while, plenty of rain but no snow... Apparition11 Complaints/Mistakes 16:58, 17 December 2015 (UTC)
What's even more interesting is that the East/Northeast (New York, Chicago, etc.) has yet to get any snow. Usually, their first snowfalls are before the West/Northwest. We've already had two-four storms as well as just days where it snowed moderately, but nothing stormy, and it's only December. This is the second one in our city, but a lot of the passes had one or two more (see current conditions for one of the major passes: Amaury (talk) 17:05, 17 December 2015 (UTC)
@Amaury: Gotcha, be careful out there! I love the snow when I can just stay home, but it can suck if you have to be on the go... Those don't look like very favorable driving conditions. Apparition11 Complaints/Mistakes 17:30, 17 December 2015 (UTC)
I love driving in bad weather conditions. And we're in another winter storm warning for today. It's already snowing and will continue until the evening. Moderate and heavy at times. Three to six inches predicted on top of the five inches we already have. Amaury (talk) 16:24, 21 December 2015 (UTC)
@Amaury: It's hard to have more fun than in a car on an empty, ice-covered parking lot :) Have fun! Apparition11 Complaints/Mistakes 19:05, 21 December 2015 (UTC)
Here are some photos I've been meaning to link you to:
The two in the second link are from today. Also, if for some reason the browser doesn't scroll you to the correct place, which is a problem a lot of times with Firefox on that site, it's posts #9 and #18 (you can see the number in the bottom-right corner of each post).
Also, if you have a look at my contributions, you'll see that last night was a blast. Amaury (talk) 19:00, 28 December 2015 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────@Amaury: :) Nice, that's pretty. Here in TN, we've been having record high temps and a whole lot of rain. Not nearly as pretty... Yeah, it looks like somebody with a dynamic IP has way too much time on their hands :) Apparition11 Complaints/Mistakes 21:43, 28 December 2015 (UTC)

The same can't be said for every part of the South. Somewhere in Texas, I think the Panhandle, got 10 feet of snow. Also, a friend of mine from that same thread just showed us this. Fun, right? I'm a bit jealous, but I'm sure we've been hit that hard before, I just can't remember. Also, I'm now curious and want to see your weather. :3 You live in Cookeville? I got that from looking at the university you attend. This is our weather: I also recommend you look at the 10-day as well (and click the view next 5 days link). It'll be some fun days. Amaury (talk) 22:08, 28 December 2015 (UTC)
@Amaury: I saw that. It's crazy that Texas is getting a blizzard while I'm running around outside in shorts :) I live pretty close to Cookeville. It's about 70 degrees here atm, but temps are supposed to drop off a bit after this front goes through. It's not supposed to get nearly as cold as it is in your neck of the woods though :) Apparition11 Complaints/Mistakes 22:24, 28 December 2015 (UTC)
So I had a look, and since you're pretty close, you'll probably be hit with the 100%-chance thunderstorms tonight. I love thunderstorms! And yeah, there was a meme posted in my thread here about that, which I think fits pretty well. Amaury (talk) 22:40, 28 December 2015 (UTC)
@Amaury: lol Poor Texas... I don't really mind storms, but would just assume not :) I do like a good hard rain from time-to-time, but I'm about sick of it. My front yard is practically a swamp now... The storms missed me for the most part, though it did rain steadily all day and there is a small chance that an isolated storm will hit, but, for the most part, it looks like most of it is past us now. Apparition11 Complaints/Mistakes 23:40, 28 December 2015 (UTC)
From temperatures that were as low as -2 degrees Fahrenheit for three-four days to more snow! Yay! It's snowing pretty good right now. The car's already getting covered. There will be a break in a little while from looking at The Weather Channel's Weather in Motion gadget before increasing again this afternoon around 4:00 PM. Temperatures are warming up again, though. It's 16 degrees right now.
Also, I received my first ever death threat toward me and my family all because I reported a user multiple times for block evasion since they were using IPs to evade their block. So mature, am I right? (I mean, I know it's a serious issue and all, and I reported it, but I still can't help but laugh at how butt-hurt vandals get. Although, admittedly, they likely aren't and they're just putting on a show for attention.) Amaury (talk) 19:59, 3 January 2016 (UTC)
@Amaury: The snow sounds good to me; those temperatures, not so much :) It is starting to cool off enough here to make me wear a coat... You have to love the Internet tough guys. I once was threatened by an IP who claimed that they were a "Navy Seal sniper" who would shoot me when I left my house :) I haven't gotten too many of those threats, usually it's just vandals who like to call me Nazi, Hitler, or some variation of penis.

You live; you learn[edit]

Got pulled over today for the first time ever. It was actually a pretty fun experience. It wasn't anything major compared to other offenses. I'll just quote what my mom posted on Facebook:

Amaury and I drove down to Yakima today so he could buy his textbooks for next quarter. On our way back, as he was entering I82 at the Selah/Canyon Road entrance, he crossed the solid white lines to get around a semi, then moved over to the left as quickly as he could so the semi could merge. Just as he got up to speed, he slowed down and pulled over and I'm thinking what's going on when I look in my side view mirror and see WSP lights flashing. He hadn't been speeding but I figured he was stopped because of the way he entered I82. The trooper was really friendly and I think respected that Amaury was respectful. As I handed him the registration and insurance card, I told him that we had been buying books for college and that he was my driver because I had had surgery. He asked him where he was going to college and said he was a good kid for taking care of me. Then he went back and ran a driver check on him, came back to the car, told him again that it is illegal to cross the solid white lines!!!! NO tIcket! I was more nervous than Amaury - don't know why. He had been working on not crossing those lines, but just got a little impatient behind the semi. It was a good learning experience for him. But it was the second compliment he received from a stranger today. At the bank, the drive through teller called to us as we left the lobby to tell us that he was a good kid because she saw him helping me across the icy parking lot. He is a good kid and I'm proud of him!

Considering I've been driving since January 31, 2009, getting my driver's license on April 16, 2011, this isn't bad at all. Having a clean record also really does wonders, and I still have one! Amaury (talk) 01:09, 1 January 2016 (UTC)

@Amaury: It's always good to get out of a traffic stop without a ticket. Nothing lost but some time, but a life lesson gained :) It sounds like you did a nice job of keeping your poise. Also, good job for being there to help your mother out when she needs it! It sounds like you're doing alright :) Apparition11 Complaints/Mistakes 17:03, 1 January 2016 (UTC)
Thanks. And yeah, I don't remember if I ever mentioned it you, but my mom had a total right hip replacement on November 9, 2015, so I've been helping her since. Amaury (talk) 17:16, 1 January 2016 (UTC)
@Amaury: Now that you said that, I believe you did. My memory is not what it used to be :) I hope she's progressing alright. It sounds like you have been doing all that you can to make it as easy as possible. Apparition11 Complaints/Mistakes 18:02, 1 January 2016 (UTC)

Happy New Year![edit]

Why are you deleting my link in the external links section when there is two websites that offer what I do but their list is not as extensive and they are copycats[edit]

There is helpful information on our website for artist and bands, we are a non-profit organization because the with the little money we make we update our Music Industry Contacts Directories! You allowed the links of the two websites below and they both copied our business model, go ahead look it up! We have had this website address since 2004 and before that we owned since 1999! Not cool, not fair bro! You won't allow my link in the external links section but you will allow copycats like Music Agents List and Industry Managers Article

Thank you

@ If you are affiliated with the web site, then you have a conflict of interest and should not be adding the link into articles yourself. The other links may have slipped through the cracks and may not belong. I'll check that out in a few minutes. With that being said, the inclusion of inappropriate external links does not mean that more should be allowed. Apparition11 Complaints/Mistakes 04:19, 5 January 2016 (UTC)

Not SPAM! Your not being fair! I included three instances of links from websites that sell information just like us but not as legitimate![edit]

The following link below is in your external links section for Talent Manager and Music Managers, the link is to a company like ours as well although they are not as legitimate and don't have anywhere near as much helpful information because we started the music industry contacts industry online in 1999, we put the Yellow Pages Of Rock out of business in 2002, they sold a book for $150. We are more relative then all the links in your external links section, Google music managers and our music managers page is on the first page! SPAM! Our website is not spam, it took along time and effort to create all the content on our music managers page, we offer more accurate information then the links that you allowed below! I'm offended because I am the independent music industry and artists and bands can learn a lot from me. I'm a successful artist and producer myself and our website sells books and you allowed a lot of links to people that write books about the music industry, look at what we give away for free on our website, not fair, not cool! SPAM! That's ridiculous! I bet the owners of the links below are your friends or something because you obviously didn't Hassel them about their links! All the links on your website are from websites that do exactly what we are doing except we are way more legit!

@Riveechi: There is no need to make a new section for every comment. I removed the entire external links section in this edit. Are you here to improve Wikipedia or get your website included? If your only interest is the latter, then yes, it is spam. At the moment, that is all that you have done on Wikipedia, so indications are that that is your goal. I have no affiliation with any of the sites. I am here only to help improve and maintain Wikipedia. If you are not here for the same reason, then you are not here for the right reasons. Apparition11 Complaints/Mistakes 04:44, 5 January 2016 (UTC)
@Riveechi: By the way, I removed the first reference you listed in this section. It was not a good source. I do not see the second "link" you listed. Apparition11 Complaints/Mistakes 04:50, 5 January 2016 (UTC)
