Although Wikipedia itself is not censored, I reserve the right to delete offensive obscenity and deliberately disruptive edits. If you're just complaining about me, though, I'll leave it on here, I've nothing to hide. (Except my real name, of course.) -- ArglebargleIV 22:35, 2 March 2007 (UTC)

Over hasty speedy delete nomination[edit]

Hi, I noticed that you nominated Throne Comics for speedy delete only 1 minute after the writer created it. For A1, A3 , A7 and some other reasons this is much too quick, as the writer is likely to add more that would resolve the issue. Please wait for an hour before tagging these sort of pages. One way to avoid this problem is to patrol from the back or middle of the new pages feed. Graeme Bartlett (talk) 23:46, 11 March 2016 (UTC)

I was patrolling using Huggle, and I really should just not use the "request CSD" buttons from there, since the new articles that would show up there are, as you said, way too new. Will be more careful in the future. Thanks for the note. -- ArglebargleIV (talk) 21:10, 14 March 2016 (UTC)

Many thanks-[edit]

Christ for the Nations Institute[edit]

Hi, I work for Christ for the Nations Institute and we created the account THEREALCFNI to update and organize the School page on Wikipedia. I started updating a couple minor things yesterday and there's so much yet to do (even changing the logo for the newest version we have now), but I see there must be something I don't know about the edit process (because you reverted). I'm trying to learn the process but honestly I find it confusing (to me) so I started editing so I could learn while doing it. Apparently you know a lot about it, so if you're available, I could really use your help if possible.

Thank you so much! Patricia THEREALCFNI (talk) 15:56, 2 June 2016 (UTC)

New deal for page patrollers[edit]

Hi ArglebargleIV,

In order to better control the quality of new pages, keep out the spam, and welcome the genuine newbies, the current system we introduced in 2011 is being updated and improved. The documentation and tutorials have also been revised and given a facelift. Most importantly a new user group New Page Reviewer has been created.

Under the new rule, you may find that you are temporarily unable to mark new pages as reviewed. However, this is nothing to worry about - most current experienced patrollers are being accorded the the new right without the need to apply, and if you have significant previous experience of patrolling new pages, we strongly encourage you to apply for the new right as soon as possible - we need all the help we can get, and we are now providing a dynamic, supportive environment for your work.

Find out more about this exiting new user right now at New Page Reviewers and be sure to read the new tutorial before applying. MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 04:28, 13 November 2016 (UTC)

Editing criticisms of Apple[edit]

Dear Argle, I removed the content because it had already been said almost verbatim earlier in the page. I'll attach an edit summary next time. 2602:306:3994:8120:DCE0:377A:D2C4:430D (talk) 01:47, 15 November 2016 (UTC)
