Stats update[edit]

Hi, and thanks for all the stats updates. Please note however that Wikipedia does not use ordinal suffixes ("-th") at the end of dates. WP:DATE#Dates has more info. Thanks again, Kevin Forsyth (talk) 01:26, 26 August 2009 (UTC)

Re: Hey there[edit]

Hi there, yes I am indeed a big college sports fan. For my user page, I used Template:User infobox. As for creating new pages, these pages may help you:

If you are interested in improving college football and basketball on Wikipedia, you can join Wikipedia:WikiProject College football and Wikipedia: WikiProject College basketball. If you have any more questions feel free to ask me on my talk page. Also, please remember to sign your posts on others' talk pages by typing ~~~~. ~Richmond96 tc 03:19, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

Thanks![edit]

...for keeping the article clean, and Roll Tide. Drmies (talk) 05:25, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

You bet.[edit]

Nice job on the article too, by the way.  :) --PMDrive1061 (talk) 22:29, 20 January 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for getting involved in this article

Thank You[edit]

Thanks for your support of keeping the Jon Leuer page, which I read on his talk page. Right now, they are voting on whether to keep or delete his page. If you get a chance, it would be cool if you would let them know how you feel here: Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Jon Leuer. Thanks much! Tipsweeney (talk) 07:11, 1 November 2010 (UTC)

List of Wisconsin Badgers football seasons[edit]

Hello, I'm making an article on a List of Wisconsin Badgers football seasons. I was wondering if you could help contribute things to the article, such as linking the seasons and bowl games to the individual articles and such. Thanks Thomsonmg2000 (talk) 14:35, 14 October 2011 (UTC)

1963 Wisconsin Badgers football team[edit]

Hello Carthage44, I just wanted to let you know that I took a look at your recently created article 1963 Wisconsin Badgers football team-- The layout of the article makes it very clear. And have a beautiful day! Cheers, Amy Z (talk) 15:13, 3 November 2011 (UTC)

Spring Training[edit]

I have restored the Spring Training game log on the Angels page as I see you have on the White Sox page . . . the anti-game log rhetoric IMO is absolutely ridiculous and I hope that you and other individual editors will support keeping these logs. I am under the persuasion that more information (as long as it is up-to-date and factually correct) is better. I have posted something on Wikipedia talk:BASEBALL#Spring Training Game logs, if you could back me up, it would be great. --CASportsFan (talk) 01:46, 10 March 2012 (UTC)

I thank you for keeping these logs as it is a part of the game. The 2011 White Sox and 2012 White Sox page has the Spring Training log and it was never a problem before so why now? Once the season starts the whole log will be collapsed so what is the big deal. I will back you up on the talk page. Thanks again. --Carthage44 (talk) 01:22, 10 March 2012 (UTC)

August 2012[edit]

You have been blocked from editing for a period of two weeks for making personal attacks on other editors. Once the block has expired, you are welcome to make useful contributions. If you think there are good reasons why you should be unblocked, you may appeal this block by adding below this notice the text {{unblock|reason=Your reason here ~~~~}}, but you should read the guide to appealing blocks first.

Carthage44 (block logactive blocksglobal blocksautoblockscontribs deleted contribscreation log change block settingsunblockfilter log)


Request reason:

I see that I have been blocked but I feel that the block is too harsh for giving my opinion on a topic. Two weeks for giving an opinion on a topic seems very unfair and for all the great edits that I do for Wikipedia seems very harsh. If a someone took my opinion as a personal attack, I am sorry for that but I really enjoy making Wikipedia a better place for users and readers. I really hope you accept my apology and reconsider my block of this great site. Thank you for your time. Carthage44 (talk) 14:03, 9 August 2012 (UTC)

Decline reason:

You're not blocked for giving an opinion on a topic, you're blocked for discussing contributors instead of their edits. Max Semenik (talk) 14:28, 9 August 2012 (UTC)

If you want to make any further unblock requests, please read the guide to appealing blocks first, then use the {{unblock}} template again. If you make too many unconvincing or disruptive unblock requests, you may be prevented from editing this page until your block has expired.

Request reason:

I am sincerely sorry that I made personal attacks on other users. I now see that I do not own pages and if I disagree with a users edit, I should use the talk pages to discuss the matter in a constructive manner. I apologize to the users, admins and readers that I have disrespected. I feel that I now have a better understanding of how to handle situations that may arise on this site. I hope that my block can be removed so I can get back to making constructive edits on this wonderful site and also make personal apologies to the users that I have disrespected. Thank you for you considerations. Carthage44 (talk) 21:39, 10 August 2012 (UTC)

Decline reason:

Your block log has a fairly extensive record of being blocked for edit warring, which, along with this most recent block for making personal attacks, suggests that you have a WP:BATTLEGROUND mentality regarding Wikipedia. However, considering your recent remarks in the conversations here, and the supporting remarks of others, I have decided to reduce the duration of this block to 1 week, which is the same duration as your prior block. It is nice of you to agree to a 1RR restriction, but I won't hold you to that, trusting you instead to comply with WP:BRD with the understanding that further battleground behavior will result in a block of a longer duration. ~Amatulić (talk) 23:11, 10 August 2012 (UTC)

If you want to make any further unblock requests, please read the guide to appealing blocks first, then use the {{unblock}} template again. If you make too many unconvincing or disruptive unblock requests, you may be prevented from editing this page until your block has expired.

You have been blocked indefinitely now from editing for Block Evasion: continuing to edit without logging in while blocked.

Request reason:

What is going on? I was blocked for a week now it is being reviewed again? What happened? I have not been on this site for the past few days since I have been blocked but I guess someone thinks I am still editing? This is completely false because I have not been on the site for days now. I am not sure what more I need to do to get reinstated. I have not been on the website and I for a FACT have NOT made any edits using another user name or IP address. I have been very cooperative through this process and am looking forward to be reinstated in a few days like I was advised. Thank you Carthage44 (talk) 18:19, 13 August 2012 (UTC)

Decline reason:

I am convinced by the evidence offered at the SPI, especially since Checkuser could not be used. — Daniel Case (talk) 18:31, 13 August 2012 (UTC)

Request reason:

I am taking responsibility for the edits at an IP address that I do not use. I would like to be reinstated as soon as possible because I really enjoy this website and making it better for all. I am sorry for any confusion that this has caused. I would like a time frame of when I can return. I can only plead and beg that I be reinstated on August 16th like it was stated before. If this is not possible, I beg and pray that 2 weeks is the longest that I would be shut out from this wonderful site. Please do not shut me out of this great site for a long period of time as you can see from my previous posts above, I am very remorseful and sorry for all the trouble I may have caused. Please give me a chance to prove myself that I have changed and only want what is best for the overall well being of the site. I believe the best way to do this is to let me be reinstated and prove myself that I have changed. Thank you for your time and consideration and I really hope to hear good news. Carthage44 (talk) 18:49, 13 August 2012 (UTC)

Decline reason:

"Taking responsibility for the edits at an IP address that I do not use" is contradictory on its face. I implore you to listen to Kudpung's advice below; 6 months isn't forever. Trust me, it'll go faster than you think, and if you can get through that without any more block evasion we'll talk. The Blade of the Northern Lights (話して下さい) 13:55, 14 August 2012 (UTC)

Well, if I'm honest, the answer you have given sounds empty to me, so no, I am unlikely to unblock you. What's more, I wouldn't rely too heavily on the standard offer, it's no gaurantee of anything. Perhaps it'd be a good idea to spend some times contributing to one of Wikimedia's many other projects, where you are not blocked, to prove you have the ability to edit productively and civilly. If you do that for me, then leave a message in a couple of months, I'd be happy to review your contributions and possibly unblock you then. WormTT(talk) 07:32, 15 August 2012 (UTC)
