Removal of trivia

I'd removed it per a comment from another user as one item is inaccurate and the other lacks context. I'll try to work them back into the article at some point in the future—the article's been something of a project of mine—but for now I hope you'll understand my actions. Also, trivia is not intrinsically encyclopedic, nor are miscellaneous facts. If you'd like to integrate them into the main text, be my guest; otherwise, I'd appreciate it if you'd re-nix them.

No problem. Thanks very much, Doctor Sunshine talk 20:08, 6 November 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:3village.gif

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:3village.gif. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. NOTE: once you correct this, please remove the tag from the image's page. STBotI 14:29, 9 November 2007 (UTC)


I've moved all the character information off the front page and onto its own article, where it can be a complete list of characters. - Yours truly, Superior(talk) 01:30, 11 November 2007 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:3village-Wikify.png)

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:3village-Wikify.png. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BetacommandBot 02:14, 12 November 2007 (UTC)

Category:3VCSD Project Helper

Hi. I recently encounted Category:3VCSD Project Helper, which you created as a membership category for participants in the Three Village Central School District Wikification Project. In general, project membership categories are reserved for active WikiProjects, and not needed for personal 'works-in-progress'-type projects in userspace. Until such time as it does become a formal project (if you intend to pursue that option, I encourage you to have a look at Wikipedia:WikiProject Council/Proposals), would you agree to deletion of the category?

On Image:Realtimecrimecenterofficial.gif he licenses it as his own work. the correct license would be a fair-use license. Of course I'm no expert on licensing Compwhiz II 04:34, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

No evidence has been provided, not plausible reason to doubt the veracity of the uploader that this is in fact entirely his own work. If provided with some webpage, or claim by another party that this is their work, then perhaps the tag would be appropriate. Until then I assume good faith.

I've noticed you more than once in the last few days sending chronic vandals over to AIV. I'm always glad to see younger teens fighting vandalism rather than contributing to it - great job. Trusilver (talk) 20:23, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

Really, I'm always happy to see younger Wikipedians. I think that it's fantastic that you volunteer yourself to a task that really is a lot of work with not a lot of reward to it. My daughter is about your age and I see the benefits in her that working on Wikipedia provides, such as critical thinking, problem solving and communication skills. I'm glad to work with you, keep sending vandals to me :). Trusilver (talk) 20:23, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

Wow, thank you! I really appreciate it. I'm going make myself an awards userpage now :D. Full of Joy, Compwhiz II 20:27, 6 January 2008 (UTC)


Be mindful of the WP:3RR rule at the moment. I don't want you to breach it. I will protect the article if it carries on without discussion on the talk page. Woody (talk) 22:28, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

That doesn't look like vandalism to me. It actually is article building. I am reworking the page now. Woody (talk) 22:36, 6 January 2008 (UTC)
Fair enough, thanks for bringing it to other people's attention. :) I will try to source everything and format it now. Woody (talk) 22:41, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with Image:DFProd.png

Image Copyright problem

Thank you for uploading Image:DFProd.png. However, it currently is missing information on its copyright status. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously. It may be deleted soon, unless we can determine the license and the source of the image. If you know this information, then you can add a copyright tag to the image description page.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thanks again for your cooperation. NOTE: once you correct this, please remove the tag from the image's page. STBotI (talk) 02:04, 7 January 2008 (UTC)

I believe the edit by User:Pendragonreader you reverted here, was a mistake. It looked like vandalism, but if you see the previous edit a person had added the section over again, and had the section was in the article twice. Just thought I'd let you know. ~ Bella Swan 21:10, 7 January 2008 (UTC)

No problem. It was a little confusing to me at first too. ~ Bella Swan 21:15, 7 January 2008 (UTC)

Block request declined

Hello. You reported (talk · contribs) to WP:AIV noting "vandalism after final warning." However criteria #2 states:

As this anonymous editor's {{test4}} warning was 701 days ago [1], I have declined to block this address for longer than 60 seconds. In the future please double-check that your vandalism reports meet all of the WP:AIV criteria first. Thanks, --Kralizec! (talk) 02:26, 8 January 2008 (UTC)



I saw that you had a custom signature and I was wondering if you could give me a hand. I'm trying to get my signature to look like this... DesertAngel but it's not cooperating!!

How should I enter this into my signature box to make it work? And do I need to check the raw signature box? Thank you so much :) DesertAngel (talk) 18:39, 8 January 2008 (UTC)

Thank you for your interest in VandalProof, Compwhizii. As you may know, VP is a very powerful program, and in fact the just released 1.3 version has even more power. Because of this we must uphold strict protocols before approving a new applicant. Regretfully, I have chosen to decline your application at this time. Please note it is nothing personal by any means, and we certainly welcome you to apply again soon. Thank again for your interest in VandalProof. βcommand 13:59, 14 January 2008 (UTC)

Reverting vandalism

Hey there :) . Thanks for helping out with reverting vandalism and keeping Wikipedia reliable. In the future, be careful not to double warn users, like you did here. I recommend adding Gracenote's amelvand script by adding importScript('User:Gracenotes/amelvand.js'); to your monobook. The script tells you if you reverted the last edit so you don't have to worry about double warnings. Thanks, Mønobi 23:15, 14 January 2008 (UTC)


Congrats on the thousand edits. ;) DesertAngel 21:29, 15 January 2008 (UTC) Sorry, we weren't able to suggest any articles for you. Something is probably wrong on our end.

There is a link for a Mr. Charrington page in the 1984 template. Thus, I thought that I would create a page for this character.Sicilianshotgun (talk) —Preceding comment was added at 16:58, 20 January 2008 (UTC)

3RR warning

Thanks for the warning, but (assuming you're referring to the Shinigami article), it's not technically a violation. Very very close, but not within the 24 span. Nevertheless, I can't revert it again without it counting. — Trust not the Penguin (T | C) 01:26, 18 January 2008 (UTC)

Mine will be archived in a month or three. I never delete anything, and have received a few retaliatory 3RR warnings in the past from angry revert warriors. The point of warning templates is to be informative and helpful, not be Scarlet letters or traffic tickets. WP:AIV checks edit histories for previous warnings, so page-blanking does not evade anything. / edg 03:42, 21 January 2008 (UTC)

User: Granola lips

The reason I deleted it is because 1) that user is not blocked, 2) those templates were all placed by an IP vandal. If you'd care to do some hunting through the suspected and proven sockpuppets of Elspeth Monro (talk · contribs) and Rastishka (talk · contribs), you'll see a pattern if this IP adding in all kinds of vandalism, not to mention tagging accounts as indefblocked and proven sockpuppets when they're not.

Re: Vandalism

Wow, I've got to really thank you for removing that from my userpage............................................excuse me for a minute...........*leaves room*...............HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.....................I'm ok now.
Serously, thanks a ton for removing that from my page, I can't imagine what someomne would have thought if they came to my page during the five minutes that guy's insanity was "live." (did I say thanks for getting rid of that?) Anyway, I do have to admit I haven't laughed as hard as that in a VERY long time. Seriously, what is wrong with that guy?! All I did was remove this edit and give him a level 2 vandalism warning. (btw, that's kind of a retorical question) I'm sorry for going on like that, but I've never had my life threatened before (ok, maybe he didn't quite threaten my life, but hey...), but I found the experience quite entertaining. I've just got to say it again, I can not thank you enough for removeing that from my page and letting me know about it. Have a great day!! Regards. Thingg 04:18, 21 January 2008 (UTC)

Removing AfD messages

Hi. I just wanted to drop you a note to ask you not to remove AfD messages from articles until the AfDs are closed. When an article is legitimately tagged for speedy deletion, the admin who deletes it should close the AfD as well. If for some reason the reviewing admin should decide that the article is not a good candidate for speedy deletion, the AfD will likely be left to run its course. I happened to be reviewing Benefit of a Doubt when you edited it, so I did not miss that there was an outstanding AfD, but under other circumstances it might not have been properly closed.:) --Moonriddengirl (talk) 00:32, 23 January 2008 (UTC)

User talk:Madram

Hi Compwhizii, I notice you reverted Maram's edit to Alfa romeo spider alloy wheels where Maram removed the prod notice. You then left a vandalism warning notice on the user's talk page. Please note that authors are allowed to remove Prod notices from articles they create and it wasn't appropriate to label this as vandalism. It is only AfD notices that should not be removed. I have removed your vandalism notice from Maram's talk page. Thanks, Gwernol 01:07, 24 January 2008 (UTC)


Hi, sorry me again. I notice you created Template:Uw-userspace1. Are you aware of the existing Template:uw-upv (and uw-upv1, uw-uypv2 etc.) which seems to duplicate yours? Unless yours has a distinct separate use, it seems to be unnecessary duplication. Thanks, Gwernol 01:12, 24 January 2008 (UTC)

Thanks, I've gone ahead and deleted it. Gwernol 01:20, 24 January 2008 (UTC)

January 24

Compwhizii, the re-revert I made to I Am Sam was an accident, okay? I'm using User:Lupin/Anti-vandal tool, with "rollback" option. It is very clear that I accidentally clicked on rollback next to I am Sam. It re-reverted the bad edit originally made by I was about to revert the vandalism by, but somebody else already did.

It was never my intention to create disruptive edits to Wikipedia. I know Wikipedia about three years ago. Always My goal in Wikipedia is to help fight back vandalism, so that's why I installed the anti-vandal tool. Why? Because I believe the tool would help find and revert vandalism easier. I recieved comments from other users, saying that I need to refrain from unconstructive edits, but it was accidental edits. The first one I got was from User:Elaich. When first made a major edit in Ed, Edd n Eddy, the alleged vandalism was meant to be helpful. I thought it was helpful, but literally, it was unconstructive.

Every user in Wikipedia is encouraged to be bold when it comes to editing articles. That's not vandalism. Sometimes, users say that some good edits are considered vandalism immediately. Just because good edits found in any particular article, does not mean they should be considered disruptive and harmful. Users have to realize that good contributions does not depend on perfection, and no history of vandalism. It's like creativity: it doesn't depend on proper spelling, flawless grammar, or even perfect artwork. So, there is no right or wrong answers.

I believe other users in Wikipedia shouldn't be afraid in updating pages because they might create harmful edits. It's not like someone's going to say, "You have to be perfect, or you will be blocked from editing." And I'm hoping this "be bold" on editing will encourage users to try to assume good faith when improving the encyclopedia, even if misguided or ill-considered. Thank you. --Healthykid (talk) 22:51, 24 January 2008 (UTC)


Sorry for writing a lot. I guess you're right, it wasn't a necessity to tell a huge story. I was a little bit overreacted when I read your message. --Healthykid (talk) 00:10, 25 January 2008 (UTC)

I'm sure your deletion of my edits to the George Thompson (abolitionist) page, and the resulting automated message you left on my talk page were an honest mistake.

re: your warning notice on my talk page

Thanks for your notice, however, before giving such warnings you may want to look into the background of this on the article talk page in question and note that I have made good faith efforts to substantiate my edits. The editor who complained about my actions above on your talk page has avoided addressing the issues of validity I raised and repeatedly reverted my edits, putting back false citations into the article.

Alright. Sources:

So if you deem this enough for me to include two lines back in that original aricle, can you please revert your change? Otherwise, I consider this unreasonable of you. (talk) 16:50, 27 January 2008 (UTC)

Matchday Soccer


Hi, recently you reversed an edit to the page Matchday Soccer that I made - I have to admit that I am no expert at editing wiki pages but as the world foremost expert in this field I thought I should give it a go - If I could I would just delete the entire article as it is wrong in almost every aspect - I should know as I designed and created the game and a simple google search on either my name or the game will confirm this. My name is Jon Ritman and I wrote a game published by Ocean Software in the eighties called Match Day (not Matchday). There is a mainly accurate article for this game under it's correct name Match Day Here is a copy of the short article and my comments to every line (my lines have JR> at the start):

Matchday Soccer is a soccer franchise created by Gremlin.

JR> No it was an Ocean title, if gremlin had attempted to publish a game called Matchday Soccer we would have had them in court so fast their 22 legs would never have touched the ground.

The first game Matchday Soccer was made in 1984 for most console in that time. It had a power bar for kick strength and was one of the first good football games. It had good graphics for its time and great ball control.

JR>> Whilst Match Day II (published several years later) did use the power bar (as far as I know this system has never been used elsewhere) Match Day did not.

It was followed up by a sequel Match Day 2 released in 1986. One criticism was the lack of numbers and had a bad screen contrast. The cover originally was planned to have Diego Maradona on the cover but Gremlin never actually approached him about this.

JR> Notice the correct use of the name this time, again this was a game I designed and programmed. As mentioned above this did have the power bar system. There were no plans to have Diego on the cover, the artist was just given the brief to do a soccer cover. He tells me he just found a magazine and used a photo in there to create a painting with - by chance I found out who that photo was a few weeks after it was released - it was none other than Gary Liniker and I only found out because a few weeks after MD2 was released a Liniker licenced game was released that used the same picture, fortuantly nobody noticed at the time or it would have been nasty. I have the original painting hanging in front of me right now.

Matchday Soccer may be getting a 3rd game called Matchday Football 2008 for the PlayStation 3, possibly being developed by SCE London Studio (The developers for SingStar). The game may only feature a League style Club Championship and a knock-out Cup called European Club Cup and Rest of World club Cup. The game may only feature around 30 clubs and 15 Countries. The game might be like Sensible Soccer, which also had a current-gen update. Matchday 08 will have the same style as Sensi with Big Heads or something like that.

JR> No idea where this came from, the franchise is dead and since anyone owning the name would have to pay me lots to use it I very much doubt they would bother - the current owner of the name is Infogrammes/Atari

The 3rd and possibly final Matchday Soccer is currently only a rumour, but may actually be in development.

JR> not even a romour :-(

Your recent edits

Hi there. In case you didn't know, when you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion, you should sign your posts by typing four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment. On many keyboards, the tilde is entered by holding the Shift key, and pressing the key with the tilde pictured. You may also click on the signature button Button sig.png located above the edit window. This will automatically insert a signature with your name and the time you posted the comment. This information is useful because other editors will be able to tell who said what, and when. Thank you! --SineBot (talk) 00:50, 28 January 2008 (UTC)

I'm new to this, so not sure what is meant by this term - I am assuming it is just placing a comment with my changes. So I did just that to the Idaho article - hopefully it is worthy.

Well, maybe if you considered opening it, you would've noticed it was MUCH MUCH larger. And still, there are no grounds to consider that Vandalizing.

There are still no grounds whatsoever to consider making an improvement vandalism.

Copyvio image on Jimmy Page

It is not a good idea to restore these because it generates pointless extra work for editors monitoring these things—this process is not entirely automated, nor can it be—and while these images are in use they expose Wikipedia to potential litigation from copyright owners.

It has become standard operating procedure for some editors to upload new copyvio images immediately once the previous copyvio image is removed. I think it would be a good idea for editors watching these articles to make a point of not rewarding such tactics. / edg 00:54, 29 January 2008 (UTC)

Yes, you are right, I do know.
However, once pointed out to them that their behaviour is unacceptable, most teenagers modify their behaviour.
I am somewhat unconvinced by your statement "Ether way i am sorry for any inconvenience" when I not only see no signs of you modifying your behaviour, but see you continue your thoughtless behaviour.
Further, twice I politely suggested you delete your unjustified and unsubstantiated accusations, but you did nothing.
I will be more explicit: Your behaviour is unacceptable.
Should you continue such thoughtless behaviour, you are likely to end up being prevented from editing WP.

You have been blocked from editing for a period of 24 hours for violating 3RR on Dominican Day Parade. Since the changes in question were clearly not vandalism (as shown by the user's use of cites and his attempts to discuss the matter here) your reverts were part of an edit war. This edit shows you were aware of your violation but chose not to revert yourself despite having been given several hours in which to do so. Everyone gets carried away sometimes, but it's important for you to understand the difference between vandalism and a content dispute.

I know you're a quality editor and this is your first offense - if another admin wants to lift the block early they can feel free to do so without asking me; I will not contest it. Whether the block runs its course or expires early, please remember: there are no emergencies on Wikipedia. Sometimes warnings are warranted, but sometimes (like this time) disagreements call for genuine discussion. Apologies, Kafziel Take a number 07:59, 3 February 2008 (UTC)


Your request to be unblocked has been granted for the following reason(s):

I'll trust you keep it cool when reverting in the future.

Dear Compwhizii, the reason why I decided to leave Wikipedia is because I just receive an e-mail from Dkendr saying that I'm a serial meddler that if I continue to alter people's work based on your my own opinion of what is "constructive," I'll be banned from editing articles. I thought it would be safer to forget Wikipedia and try to edit my own work. Here's the message:

You are incorrect to revert my edits; you do not have the right to

decide what is "unconstructive," and it appears that you are a serial Wikipedia meddler. I have therefore restored my edits to the Eric the Midget page as you had no right to revert them. Should you continue to alter people's work based on your own opinion of what is "constructive" I will petition to have you banned from editing articles.

People like you give Wikipedia a bad name. I strongly urge you to take

up another hobby.

Maybe he's right, I am a meddler, and I don't really know how to make constructive edits. I really should take up another hobby. And I'm not experienced on contributing. --Healthykid (talk) 15:43, 3 February 2008 (UTC)

before accusing me of vandalism maybe u should look at the edit, on the katherine mansfield page i was correcting the link to ensure it connected to bohemian in the sense it is meant in the article, mansfield was not a bohemian in a geographic sense rather she was a bohemian in terms of the social movement sense thus by reverting my edits you are in fact the one vandalizing the article not me

You might be a little overzealous on reverting anon edits and warning the anons. Case in point: User:, whose edits to Katherine Mansfield were an improvement to the article.

Reverts of my edits to spider

I would be very interested in knowing why You consider my edits to the spider article unconstructive. I provided full explanations for both in the edit summary. The first was the removal of a nonsense comment that 60 cm spiders exists (!!!), which also had a request for references attached, and, as noted on WP:REF, it can therefore be removed (which only seems sensible when dealing with such comments that so obviously are way off). Of note that this claim evidently was vandalism, as evident by the directly following edits by the same editor (this and shortly after this). My second edit to that article was a warning regarding a photo where someone handles a Brazilian wandering spider - something that no sensible person should do (consider checking the specific wiki article if not familiar with this group) - a warning was therefore only fair in my opinion (just in case someone without knowledge of this genus of spiders were to see it, and get a mistaken idea. Wikipedia might not be censored, but you still can't find bomb-making descriptions on it!). Regardless, I would be very interested in knowing why my edits were reverted, and do hope you will seriously consider restoring them. Thanks. (talk) 03:14, 8 February 2008 (UTC)

I've re-added the edit, as I, based on the amount of edits you've made over a short period, can see that you're a pretty busy wiki editor, so I presume the revert of my edit simply was a mistake. I have, however, also changed the photo of the Brazilian wandering spider to a photo where the issue of someone foolishly handling this dangerous species isn't an issue, and as such the warning below the photo can be left out. Should there be anything you disagree with in that edit, I do hope you will add a response here. Otherwise I presume the earlier revert was a mistake (... it happens, no prob.).

Please do not delete the Youtube link to Henry keyser and Alex. Dumble. This is not a copyright violation. Henry posted the video for educational purposes and has placed no restrictions on its use. WP guidelines only prohibit links to copyrighted materials - not all links. There are at least six robots out there at work automatically deleting all Youtube links, when it is not actually Wikipedia policy to do so. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Scottie1492 (talkcontribs) 00:26, 10 February 2008 (UTC)


Please stop messing around with the page im creating. Im not vandalizing it, im constructing it. You cant delete something or accuse it of being vandalized without it even being completed. Im the founder of the Flat String Music record label and I would like to make a page for reference. Please remove the speed deletion tag and let me continue my work. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Metalstyle (talkcontribs) 23:21, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

Then how am I suppoed to finish my page then? If you or somebody else is just going delete it? Go to, its all real and all of the information is right there. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:27, 9 February 2008 (UTC)


Please be more careful with your rollback tool; here you restored vandalism to an article that an IP had removed. I see this does not appear to be an isolated incident either given the discussions above - if you continue to rollback constructive edits, your rollback permissions may be revoked. :/ krimpet 23:01, 8 February 2008 (UTC)

Unfortunately it seems you have been continuing to rollback constructive IP edits, even within the period of the last few minutes; I have removed your rollback permission, and disabled your access to the tool Huggle for 48 hours. Please be more careful in the future; rollback is not to be used on constructive edits. :( krimpet 00:08, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

Youtube Poop

Is there any particular reason why it should be removed, or are you removing it just because it has "poop" in its title?

As I said on the talk page, none of that section is of any way vandalism at all. You can search on YouTube yourself for proof, or visit for the official site. (talk) 21:09, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

Your reports to AIV have been amazing. Nice job. Malinaccier (talk) 21:33, 9 February 2008 (UTC)


Did you mean to do that? According to Wikipedia:WikiProject Schools#What not to include, trivia of interest only to pupils is not to be included. The page is tagged for being written like an advert, so my edit were in good faith. (talk) 21:36, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

Can you please respond to this? These were clearly good-faith edits and shouldn't have been reverted with the rollback tool. Hut 8.5 21:48, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

Please take into consideration the validity of my edits before blindly accusing me of vandalism. If you disagree on the content I have added, then lets discuss on the talk page of the article. I found it interesting that your talk page is filled with comments of people who think you have accused them hastily of vandalism... seems like you have a bit of a history of this. (talk) 22:49, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

re: "Wikipedia does not belong on that list." Do you have anything else to say? Your assertions are meaningless, please qualify your statements. (talk) 22:54, 9 February 2008 (UTC)
Please take a loot at Troll (Internet) again and the talk page and let me know if this is kosher with you. Thanks. —Memotype::T 05:19, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

re: Tool or no tool

I don't believe they should... just a difference of opinion I guess. Back when I was still an "account" I was a VandalProof user as well as popups and Lupins tools etc. I was very diligent that I did not use any vandal tool to revert an edit that caused a link error or went against known consensus or anything else that wasn't clear vandalism. For those rv's a correction with a proper edit summary was more appropriate. I have zero tolerance for vandals and trolls. But I can AGF a spelling mistake and not use something like popups to rv... because I think that's ill use of the tools. It makes not difference to me now. After I rolled over 20000 edits I abandoned my user account for the purity of anonymous editing. Which means that now... I have no tool :D don't tell Wiki alf that I said that... he'll never let me forget it Have a nice day! (talk) 23:07, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

Please read WP:CSD. Schools can not be deleted via speedy A7 for lack of notability. Only those categories of things specified can be speedied via that rule.DGG (talk) 00:16, 10 February 2008 (UTC)


Hello, Compwhizii.

I noticed that you're reverting's edits on the Talk:Czechs page. I took a look and I think that his edits are well-intentioned but misguided attempts at cleaning up the page. Continually reverting them may not be the best way to settle this, as his edits appear to be made in good faith.

Thanks, Sandy of the CSARs (talk) 00:20, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

Popups glitch: You or the script?

Hi! I just noticed this reversion[6] you made a few minutes ago. Is there something going on with Popups? I think it's supposed to be putting values into those $x placeholders... Tuvok[T@lk/Improve] 02:17, 11 February 2008 (UTC)


Thanks for the back-up. Anti-anon editors are everywhere in Wiki. Sometimes, unfortunately, they show up in admins too... even if only for a brief edit or tw0. Trust me... in my 50000+ edits here... I've seen it all. Thanks again and have a nice day! (talk) 02:26, 12 February 2008 (UTC)

Stop hand nuvola.svg This is your only warning.
The next time you make a personal attack as you did at :User talk:Truco9311#b1tch, you will be blocked for disruption. Comment on content, not on other contributors or people. Was this necessary?

regarding Chung-Hua Institution for Economic Research

Please read this version of it. Also please note how it says: Do not edit this page until an administrator has resolved this issue.

To write a new article without infringing material, follow this link to a temporary subpage. State that you have done so on this article's discussion page. Note that simply modifying copyrighted text is not sufficient to avoid copyright infringement—if the original copyright violation cannot be clearly identified and the article reverted to a prior version, it is best to write the article from scratch. An administrator will move the new article into place once the issue is resolved.

It doesn't appear you are an admin. If I am wrong, I apologise.--Rockfang (talk) 15:17, 13 February 2008 (UTC)

Seeking to know a better reason as to why you reverted my edit...

To my own comments on the Jackson talk page? Since I made them the article has been revised anyone reading that would still assume I was reffering to the current page. In fact, I even labeled my edit so, DON'T revert it again. Are you just being a pedantic hobbyist wikipedian with too much time on your hands, as most of your talk page indicates?

I am not sure why you would say my edits were not constructive, as I just started and wrote all the text for the page. I then asked for formatting help, which I have received. Your comment seems quite rude. Spoonkymonkey (talk) 01:43, 17 February 2008 (UTC)
