- Hi, Blobglob, Welcome to Wikipedia!
I hope you like this place--I sure do--and want to stay. If you need help on how to title new articles check out Wikipedia:Naming conventions, and for help on formatting the pages visit the manual of style. If you need help look at Wikipedia:Help and The FAQ , plus if you can't find your answer there, check The Village pump (for Wikipedia related questions) or The Reference Desk (for general questions)! There's still more help at the Tutorial and Policy Library. Plus, don't forget to visit the Community Portal. And if you have any more questions after that, feel free to post them on My User talk Page.
Here's some extra tips to help you get around in the 'pedia!
- If you made any edits before you got an account, you might be interested in assigning those to your username.
- If you want to play around with your new Wiki skills the Sandbox is for you.
- You can sign your name using three tildes, like ~~~. If you use four, you can add a datestamp too.
- You may want to add yourself to the New User Log
- If you ever think a page or image should be deleted, please list it at the votes for deletion page. There is also a votes for undeletion page if you want to retrieve something that you think should not have been deleted.
Happy Wiki-ing. -- John Fader 18:43, 3 Mar 2005 (UTC)
HOSTS file redirect?
Hello: Do you know anything about the reasoning behind the redirect for HOSTS file and HOST file ? I noticed you were one of the editors during/before the redirect, and everywhere I've seen it referred to as a "HOSTS" file, (though it's not case sensitive). And was just interested in why it redirects to host file. --R00ted
- The HOST file -> host file is automatic. As for the other one, I had just assumed that host file was the correct location for the purposes of my edit (which was to prevent a redirect leading to another redirect). I can see where you're coming from as I've mainly heard it referred to that as well, although I suppose that might be to do with the naming in the Windows OS. Perhaps you could raise it on the talk page and see if you get a response, although it looks like someone has already asked about it.
- Also, please sign your posts on talk pages if possible. I've added it to your post myself if that's ok. — blobglob talk 19:25, 21 November 2005 (UTC)
You have to admit, my "vandalism" was pretty good. Most people just do stupid shit like replacing pictures of things with dicks or clear everything. I did something original, and i feel i should be commended on that. Signed by the Guess Who guy.
Allegations of sock puppetry on the Center for Science in the Public Interest page

Lois and Clark listed at Redirects for discussion
An editor has asked for a discussion to address the redirect Lois and Clark. Since you had some involvement with the Lois and Clark redirect, you might want to participate in the redirect discussion (if you have not already done so). --George Ho (talk) 05:45, 2 February 2012 (UTC)
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
