Kazakhstan at the 2008 Summer Olympics

Any reason you Reverted edits by the anon user ? Their edits to Kazakhstan at the 2008 Summer Olympics were not all in the ideal style for page but were a good start, well intentioned and in no way vandalism, as you could easily have seen if you'd bothered to look at them. Basement12 (talk) 02:52, 19 August 2008 (UTC)

Replied on your talk page. Chamal Talk 12:15, 19 August 2008 (UTC)

your links

Is it okay if I use the same images for my link if no could you give me a page on different images I can put on?--Spittlespat (talk) 02:03, 20 August 2008 (UTC)

Replied on your talk page. Chamal Talk 02:14, 20 August 2008 (UTC)

COULD YOU CHANGE MY header into different icons for the vandalize me section a bomb icon for awards a star and for contributions a lighting icons, also could you make them linked to my userpage it always goes to your userpage yusertalk guestbook etc.!I would ber very please! --Spittlespat (talk) 00:19, 21 August 2008 (UTC)

Done. I'll put the links on your talk page. Chamal Talk 01:17, 21 August 2008 (UTC)

Sorry I had so much typos!--Spittlespat (talk) 21:52, 21 August 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for signing my Autograph Book!

Hey! :D Thanks for signing my autograph book! I recently redesigned the page, so I hope the information is still relatively consistent. It was kind of funny when I had another user tell me that my links were not pointing back to my talk page anymore... ^_^ Anyways, I hope you have a great day. I'm just chilling here because my university canceled classes today from Tropical Storm Fay (2008). - Jameson L. Tai talkcontribs 13:42, 20 August 2008 (UTC)


Can you type in everything you need to type to show the icon of a lighting, yellow star, bomb, and that weird looking penquin I would be pleased if you could help me! (I probably should give a barnstar!--Spittlespat (talk) 21:13, 22 August 2008 (UTC)

Wait just show me what you need to type in for the funny looking penquin!--Spittlespat (talk) 21:16, 22 August 2008 (UTC)

So that's what you have to do if you want to put it in userboxes? (Just write it on your user talk, you don't have to message me!)--Spittlespat (talk) 01:52, 23 August 2008 (UTC)

Yes you can do it like that. You can find detailed instructions on creating a userbox here. For example, it can be done like this:
{{Userbox |border-c=#7b68ee |border-s=1 |id-c=#dcdcdc|id-s=12 |id-fc=#191970 |info-c=#d8bfd8 |info-s=8 |info-fc=#0000ff |id=Example |info=This is an example userbox}}
You will get:
Example This is an example userbox
To insert an image, put a link to the image instead of text in front of 'id=':

{{Userbox |border-c=#7b68ee |border-s=1 |id-c=#ffffff |id-s=12 |id-fc=#191970 |info-c=#d8bfd8 |info-s=8 |info-fc=#0000ff |id=[[Image:Tux.png|45px]] |info=This is an example userbox}}

And you get:
Tux.png This is an example userbox
You have to reduce the size of the image to fit it in. Like this: [[Image:Tux.png|40px]]. Chamal Talk 02:15, 23 August 2008 (UTC)

One more question can you also type in how to make a icon of a cool looking sheild??--Spittlespat (talk) 15:21, 23 August 2008 (UTC)

I don't understand. Do you mean you want to create an image that can be used for something here? If so, you'll have to create it yourself (using an eternal application) and upload it to Commons using this page. You can then use it like any other image that's already there. If that's not what you wanted to know, can you make it a bit clearer? :) Chamal Talk 16:10, 23 August 2008 (UTC)

No I'm making a userbox so you're saying there isn't a picture of a sheild, is there a picture for a knight or sword?--Spittlespat (talk) 16:22, 23 August 2008 (UTC)

Hmmm.... there doesn't seem to be many icon type shields, swords or knights. Maybe I can try to make something. If you want me to create something, tell me what kind of an image you want. Chamal Talk 16:43, 23 August 2008 (UTC)

maybe you could do the sheild of light make the sheild look cool don't overdo it... THANKS A MILLION!--Spittlespat (talk) 17:04, 23 August 2008 (UTC)

You helped me so much with icons and pictures!--Spittlespat (talk) 17:09, 23 August 2008 (UTC)

No need to rush but you're probably not done yet, does it take a long time to create a new icon?--Spittlespat (talk) 17:52, 23 August 2008 (UTC)

Wow cool! My first barnstar. But what is the shield of light? I've never heard about it before :s Can you describe what it's like? Chamal Talk 01:24, 24 August 2008 (UTC)

Oh my gosh you will be the only user that knows how my secret userbox looks like! (once you find my secretpage and and do a task my secret page asks you to do you will discover the secret userbox!) Anyway the sheild of light looks like a sheild, it has three pointy tops like this ^^^ then the bottom looks like a u but more pointy and the color is red the outline is black there is one line going vertically that's green and one going horizontally (also green) and with bold capital letters of W and make the sheild bright but not do bright! Thanks very much! (if you want to find my secret page click on the blue links!)--Spittlespat (talk) 02:08, 24 August 2008 (UTC)

ACC Tool

Wikipedia Accountcreators.png

Someone, probably you, requested access to the account creation tool. For security purposes could you please confirm that it was you who made the request so we can approve you, thanks. —— RyanLupin(talk) 15:34, 23 August 2008 (UTC)

Yes, it was I who made the request. Chamal Talk 15:54, 23 August 2008 (UTC)

Thank you for applying to access the account creation tool. I have approved your request. You may now access the tool here. Before you do so, please read the tool's guide to familiarize yourself with the process. You may also want to join #wikipedia-en-accounts on irc and/or the mailing list. Keep in mind that the ACC tool is a powerful program, and misuse may result in your access being suspended by a tool administrator. Don't hesitate to get in touch with me if you have any questions. Thank you for participating in the account creation process. —— RyanLupin(talk) 16:04, 23 August 2008 (UTC)
Thank you for approving and also for the advice. Chamal Talk 16:12, 23 August 2008 (UTC)
Being granted access to the ACC tool doesn't automatically assign you with the account creator right. You are only flagged if you keep hitting the maximum 6 accounts a day quota. Once you've shown evidence of a desire to help with the account creation process, you can apply for the flag at WP:PERM, however, like I said above, only after you've hitten the maximum 6 accounts limit on a regular basis, regards —— RyanLupin(talk) 09:43, 24 August 2008 (UTC)

secret page!

It's somewhere on my userpage!--Spittlespat (talk) 01:41, 24 August 2008 (UTC)


Ho, your comment gave me a good laugh! ...Perhaps my capabilities are matched by the fact that your signature is in nearly every guestbook that I've seen. :P

Unfortunately, I know of no such barnstar; perhaps the society barnstar will do (and how odd does it sound for me to suggest a gift to be given to myself?...)

Wiki Defcon again

Hi Chamal, thanks for your reply. I tried updated the template and yet the Defcon on my userpage hasn't updated... why is that? I gave it more than 12 hours. Is there a project page to talk about Wiki Defcon somewhere? RainbowOfLight Talk 22:54, 25 August 2008 (UTC)

Replied on your talk page. Chamal Talk 02:46, 26 August 2008 (UTC)
Thanks again. I had dumped my cache and done a hard reload of the page, and that didn't work. The purge function did though, and I didn't know that existed. Thanks! RainbowOfLight Talk 19:52, 26 August 2008 (UTC)

Steak and cheese

Hi there, just a friendly note that I think you've used the wrong deletion category for Steak and cheese. G1 is for WP:Patent nonsense, which this is not. I certainly agree that it should be deleted for one reason or another, but G1 should only be used for complete gibberish. This is especially important when using twinkle because it automatically puts a notice on the authors page--it can be seen as biting the newcomers to be told that their article is nonsense when they made it in good faith. (Not saying that's the case here.) Thanks for watching the newpages! Cheers... justinfr (talk) 02:30, 26 August 2008 (UTC)

I've redirected the article to Cheesesteak instead. justinfr (talk) 02:31, 26 August 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for your reply. I know how it is with watching for spam/vandalism and I make mistakes too. Best.... justinfr (talk) 02:37, 26 August 2008 (UTC)


(Message posted in guestbook by User:Hadoukenbellamy, moved here by me)

Hi, how do you know when someone has "vandalised"? cos you changed my page pretty quickly. just wondering how you knew.

Replied on your talk page Chamal Talk 02:45, 26 August 2008 (UTC)

no not vandalism, but that's what you said you go about doing - correcting vandalism - so i was wondering how people with no interest in something could detect it (i'm not saying you don't appreciate muse or anything). i got it wrong anyway so i'm glad you deleted it! —Preceding unsigned comment added by Hadoukenbellamy (talkcontribs) 02:53, 26 August 2008 (UTC)

? i didn't take it as an accusation. i know the page was short. jut wondering what would happen if i did that. i had no more info at the time of writing. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Hadoukenbellamy (talkcontribs) 03:05, 26 August 2008 (UTC)

Re: 3RR

It's actually a 'may' isn't it? WP:3RR doesn't say that reverting vandalism is exempted from 3RR, but is a 'possible exception'. Doesn't that mean if it isn't 'blatant' vandalism, we'll be in trouble? Chamal Talk 12:17, 27 August 2008 (UTC)

Oh, and one more thing...I'm thinking of running for adminship someday (*gasp*). Yes, it's true. So is there anyone you might recommend to give me a little admin coaching first? LaPianista! «talk» 01:19, 31 August 2008 (UTC)
Hey, hey! Whoa, whoa, whoa! I meant I was "thinking" of running for adminship - not necessary now, anytime soon, or maybe not at all, luckily. :) But thanks for your support! LaPianista! «talk» 04:38, 3 September 2008 (UTC)

I saw your comment at the above user's talkpage about edit summaries, and good job!--LAAFan 03:19, 1 September 2008 (UTC)

Re: Thanks

No problem. The way I look at it, if you're getting vandalized, you must be doing something good. Cheers, and keep up the good work! J.delanoygabsadds 14:49, 3 September 2008 (UTC)


No worries. I'm going to go and reply on the adoption page now. :)--LAAFan 01:51, 4 September 2008 (UTC) appears to have vandalised Colin Fox twice recently after a final warning from you. PatGallacher (talk) 19:15, 4 September 2008 (UTC)

The final warning was given on 29th August and the IP has vandalized once on 3rd September and once again on 4th. But maybe it was a different person? After all, it belongs to a school. However, no report has been made to WP:AIV and nobody has edited with that IP since then. So no harm done I guess, and anyway we can't block him now when the last vandal edit is a day old and he's not currently editing :) Chamal Talk 01:26, 5 September 2008 (UTC)

Tribal Wars


Why are you reverting my edits on the Tribal Wars page? There are only about 8 worlds open for new players at one time. World 18 is oldest world a player can join at the moment and the newest world is 24. 25 and 26 will be opening soon also. I also corrected a spelling mistake and you've reverted it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:11, 5 September 2008 (UTC)

I have already restored the article back to your version. The revert was a mistake, as I realized immediately after reverting. Sorry about that. Chamal Talk 13:15, 5 September 2008 (UTC)

No bother, I had just come back to remove this comment after seeing the comment of it being a mistake. Cheers! —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:16, 5 September 2008 (UTC)


Sorry about the delay on the adoption page. I'm deciding what to give to you next; another assignment or the quiz. I'll do it soon. Cheers.--LAAFan 21:48, 5 September 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for your anti-vandalism tool comments

It's very charitable others imagine that I could learn Wiki editing rules and guidelines in a couple weeks! That's an account created to do anti-vandalism. If I made casual mistakes learning the anti-vandalism ropes, I didn't want it to reflect on articles that I've put a lot of work into. Now I'm realizing that was overcautious.

But I was going to ask if using MTW is actually a problem, compared to Huggle. Others have suggested changing over, too. Regards, Piano non troppo (talk) 23:45, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

Well, it's just that Huggle is faster than any other anti-vandal tool. It also has more options and is more customizable. You'll be much more efficient with it (It is in fact, the ultimate tool, but maybe I'm prejudiced; I'm in love with Huggle) But to use Huggle, you need rollback, and to get rollback you'll probably have to be around for a few weeks so that you get to know the policies and guidelines well. You can get rollback from an admin or here. As for MWT, I used it for a few days but I didn't really like it. So I switched to Twinkle and used it along with Vandal Fighter. After I got rollback I switched to Huggle, of course. Chamal Talk 02:20, 7 September 2008 (UTC)
