Thank you[edit]

Oh, thank you! I've been an experienced contributor to the Spanish Wikipedia, where I have dozens of contributions; but now I feel confident with my English to ammend some things I fetch in this Wiki. Can you perform the edition I proposed in the Thatcher's article? Thanks for your welcoming message! Sam10rc (talk) 11:12, 3 July 2016 (UTC)

That is a complex article and I am not particularly familiar with things there. That is best left to the regular editors of the page. I have moved your comment from the top to the bottom where it is most likely to be seen. I have also added the {{edit semi-protected}} template to get the attention of people. HighInBC Need help? {{ping|HighInBC}} 14:06, 3 July 2016 (UTC)

Thank you again. I'll make these kind of editions by myself once I have my account self-confirmed. Will watch Thatcher's article in the following. Sam10rc (talk) 14:09, 4 July 2016 (UTC)

@Sam10rc: you only need 30 days and 10 edits to be auto-confirmed. You have 7 edits so far, if you reply to me you will have 8. So it is not far away. HighInBC Need help? {{ping|HighInBC}} 14:33, 4 July 2016 (UTC)


@HighInBC: So here I have 8. Oops, I forgot the signature. This makes 9. And so I sum up to a total of 10, I expect you forgive this lese majeste of editing above the signature.Sam10rc (talk) 10:53, 5 July 2016 (UTC)

CJR2013[edit]

After my block removing talk page access, I was writing up my decline reason. Hope you don't mind. --NeilN talk to me 14:39, 3 July 2016 (UTC)

I don't mind. I generally avoid that from happening by putting the unblock-on-hold template up before I review their edits, even for simple cases. I figured I should pass onto them the OTRS contact. The volunteers there are used to dealing with folks who lack the social skills to work on wiki.
I very much agree with the removal of the talk page access, was going to do that myself. Given what they were blocked for it probably should have been done up front. HighInBC Need help? {{ping|HighInBC}} 14:41, 3 July 2016 (UTC)
Good tip. I'll do that in the future. --NeilN talk to me 14:44, 3 July 2016 (UTC)

Greece vs FYROM[edit]

Macedonia is not the country but the name of the administrative division of Greece, namely the geographical region . Can yis territories reach and Macedonia but not Macedonian but Slavs . And the United Nations recognizes it as FYROM. These ... Do you want to continue the lesson ; Do you understand; It is rather an insult.--Νικόλας Παπαποστόλου (talk) 07:30, 25 June 2016 (UTC)

You are welcome to make your point on the talk page but this has already been discussed at length and settled. I know you have already seen the link Wikipedia:Naming_conventions_(Macedonia)#Greece-related_articles which explains things very well. HighInBC Need help? {{ping|HighInBC}} 07:31, 25 June 2016 (UTC)

Given I have involved myself in this content dispute I will have to recuse myself from taking any action in this case. HighInBC Need help? {{ping|HighInBC}} 14:15, 25 June 2016 (UTC)

I have not seen anything. Well believe the lie , but eventually the truth will shine and will be revealed ! Here the UN itself recognize it as FYROM. PS This is an insult to the Greeks to know .--Νικόλας Παπαποστόλου (talk) 07:01, 28 June 2016 (UTC)

However, the truth is that not Macedonian (at least the majority) but about 90 % are Roma , Vlachs , Slavs etc.--Νικόλας Παπαποστόλου (talk) 07:03, 28 June 2016 (UTC)

Please read WP:TRUTH. You bring us truth, but we do not seek truth. We seek verifiability and neutrality. HighInBC Need help? {{ping|HighInBC}} 13:30, 28 June 2016 (UTC)

The truth is that when you sit down to enjoy otherwise pisteietai what you say. how the truth will shine sometime. God loves the thief but loves and homemaker (ie there lie for some time and then the truth will be revealed)--Νικόλας Παπαποστόλου (talk) 16:21, 30 June 2016 (UTC)

What do you want from me? HighInBC Need help? {{ping|HighInBC}} 16:57, 30 June 2016 (UTC)

All I want is to believe me and let my version in section Greece . Ok?--Νικόλας Παπαποστόλου (talk) 06:15, 1 July 2016 (UTC)

It is not a question of believing you. This is something that was settled through consensus prior to your edit. I don't think you are going to get your desired outcome here. HighInBC Need help? {{ping|HighInBC}} 06:32, 1 July 2016 (UTC)


Nah and why not? Only your will be done here? Wikipedia the free encyclopedia . Do you all (most , actually) in a lie . It is a lie what not understand?--Νικόλας Παπαποστόλου (talk) 07:02, 1 July 2016 (UTC)

It is not my decision, I could not give you your preferred version if I wanted to. Please stow your attitude, if you want to change the article got to the article talk page. HighInBC Need help? {{ping|HighInBC}} 07:08, 1 July 2016 (UTC)

Probably not everybody know your story. The Macedonian kingdom was Greek. when there probably was not even Slavs. You know the 'Macedonians do so? I guess not. Because they had no history and want to have, and so they took the story of their neighbors. And why had not history? (you ask me). Because they had not yet discovered writing (while Alexander had biographers and wrote what he did so we know what we did) so Cyril and Methodius (from Byzantine history) went the built alphabet, taught them Christianity etc. Got it now? Even with questioning ?--Νικόλας Παπαποστόλου (talk) 08:00, 1 July 2016 (UTC)

Look you are not the first person to come to Wikipedia with their nationalist beliefs. This decision was not made out of ignorance. This is not my decision it was made by the community.
I am not particularly interested in your opinions on the country of Macedonia. I get that you don't like the name they chose, just because you don't like it does not make it not so. Please drop the stick and walk away from the dead horse. HighInBC Need help? {{ping|HighInBC}} 13:41, 1 July 2016 (UTC)

Because in emptied of views but that's why you say that. And Aida from now that would say nationalist . The truth only say this , and because you do not like about what you say and because they serve interests while I serve the interests of truth ! Now let sticks and dead horses and donkeys and hear will come out a winner and would now believe the truth ! And I do not say the only to you I say to all of you to learn the truth at last ! And I do not say the view of Greece say in terms of truth and neither nationalist nor nationalistic and say away from ' me them. Wake eh ! You have to say something else?--Νικόλας Παπαποστόλου (talk) 18:34, 3 July 2016 (UTC)

And will not stop until you know . The teacher waited and clung to understand the students , a? I play the teacher simply liken the situation .--Νικόλας Παπαποστόλου (talk) 18:37, 3 July 2016 (UTC)

I am getting the impression that neither of us is understanding the other. I am certainly having trouble parsing what you are saying. I assume you are having trouble understanding me. I am not sure how to tell you that your nationalist opinions are not relevant to an encyclopedic article. HighInBC Need help? {{ping|HighInBC}} 18:43, 3 July 2016 (UTC)

I said I'm not a nationalist nor nationalistic views . It's true opinions and the side of truth . It seems you have trouble understanding and not me . You do not understand anything of all what to say so long? Probably not. Well stay on lies. Poor truth but what blame you believe the lie ? Nothing. You wait to the believe it! FYROM FYROM again ! No Macedonia . Insult to the Greek , obscene name .--Νικόλας Παπαποστόλου (talk) 22:53, 3 July 2016 (UTC)

You say that you understand me, but you keep chanting the mantra of "truth" at me, even though I have already explained my position on "truth". You say you understand me, but I have already explained that this is not my decision but rather the decision of the community. I really don't think you are understanding me, and if you are understanding me then you are choosing not to. HighInBC Need help? {{ping|HighInBC}} 23:06, 3 July 2016 (UTC)

And I try to explain but not if you understand . A big difference explain the truth insist on lies . Em see tucked barring the truth ! This will tell dictatorship (junta ).In Greece the period 1967-1974 we call dictatorship of the colonels . I will do what I tell you dictatorship of sysops with head (HighInBC).

We can not bring Antirion tsoup blocking.--Νικόλας Παπαποστόλου (talk) 18:20, 4 July 2016 (UTC)

  • (talk page stalker) Since I had a run-in with this editor soon after he started editing here (as can be seen here and on his talk page), and warned him that continuing with what he was doing would get him into trouble, I felt I had to post a comment here. Nikolas, this is the international English language Wikipedia, and we don't care what articles on the Greek Wikipedia say, or what the Greek government says, we go only by what international reliable sources say. Nothing in your attitude has changed even one iota since August of last year, so even attempting to discuss with you is just a big waste of time and energy, because you don't want to listen, and you're not here to build an encyclopaedia, only to push Greek POV and "right great wrongs".

User:Jimbo Wales[edit]

Could you consider pending changes here as full protection is a bit steep? Most of the nonsense is coming from IPs.--♦IanMacM♦ (talk to me) 20:47, 3 July 2016 (UTC)

Jimbo being an admin can edit through the protection. Is there a pressing need for other people to edit this users page? I will review the history of disruption that page to see if semi-protection is sufficient, but pending changes seems an ill fit. HighInBC Need help? {{ping|HighInBC}} 20:49, 3 July 2016 (UTC)
@Ianmacm: PC won't work outside of articles. --NeilN talk to me 20:50, 3 July 2016 (UTC)
I have reduced it to semi-protection based on the history of the page. Unless people circumvent it that should be enough. Thanks for the advice. HighInBC Need help? {{ping|HighInBC}} 20:52, 3 July 2016 (UTC)

OK thanks. Nonsense on Jimbo's user page is nearly always IPs or throwaway accounts. Semi-protection would be enough.--♦IanMacM♦ (talk to me) 20:53, 3 July 2016 (UTC)

I would recommend re-applying the move=sysop (indefinite) which has been there for more than a decade :) -- zzuuzz (talk) 21:01, 3 July 2016 (UTC)

Morph1138[edit]

Hi there. You seem like a rational person and judging from your wiki entry you live in the same place I do. I would like to pick your brain on editing wiki when you are back online. I'm trying to figure out what I've done wrong where I feel like people have it in for me on here. If we could have a quick chat on here one day I'd like that. Morph1138 (talk) 03:01, 7 July 2016 (UTC)

You have explained yourself and remained polite, that is about the best thing you can do. The reason you are under suspicion is because 2 other IPs showed up with the same opinion as you right around the time you made your first edit. I don't have much to add to the investigation other than while I found it suspect I did not think myself that there was actionable evidence. HighInBC Need help? {{ping|HighInBC}} 13:53, 7 July 2016 (UTC)
Thank you for your input. I've been researching policies and such trying to figure out what I did wrong as no one I'd contacted seemed willing to help me out. Thanks again for your assistance! Morph1138 (talk) 20:52, 7 July 2016 (UTC)

Your signature[edit]

I've noticed that you're using {{ping}} in your signature. I've tried adding it a few days back to my signature, but it kept converting it to {{SUBST:ping|}} even with the nowiki tag. I stumbled upon one of your comments by chance, and your signature had what I want to do. Could you post your signature field? —Hexafluoride (talk) 14:28, 7 July 2016 (UTC)

I don't know how it would be done with the standard signature, as I am transcluding mine. It is stored here: User:HighInBC/signature.
Do you have the "Treat the above as wiki markup" clicked on? HighInBC Need help? {{ping|HighInBC}} 14:29, 7 July 2016 (UTC)
I see. No, I was inserting the formatting directly in the field. It seems that I'll need to do it like you. The wiki markup is enabled. —Hexafluoride (talk) 15:05, 7 July 2016 (UTC)
The result: —Hexafluoride (talk) Use {{re|Hexafluoride}} when replying on your talk 15:16, 7 July 2016 (UTC).
Thanks
FYI HighInBC is substituting their signature, not transcluding, which is prohibited. Looks like Hexa is not transcluding either, but thought I'd make this clear nonetheless :) MusikAnimal talk 15:59, 8 July 2016 (UTC)
Occluded signatures are best.--Bbb23 (talk) 23:59, 9 July 2016 (UTC)

Height changer[edit]

You replied to a report at ANI in March 2016 about a user who routinely changes numbers in infoboxes (I've seen height and reach). I just encountered Chingis1991 (talk · contribs) because one of their recent edits broke a template which put the article in an error tracking category that I monitor. I reverted all their changes for this month because checking the first few showed that the original was correct according to at least one source. You may like to review the user's edits and see if action is warranted. Thanks. Johnuniq (talk) 02:14, 24 July 2016 (UTC)

Problematic IP...[edit]

User:173.55.239.44 just replaced content I blanked on a CSD copyvio page (which I reverted).

The IP has had several block warnings, and an actual block from you. There seems to be something going on here for sure. MSJapan (talk) 18:51, 3 August 2016 (UTC)

All the evidence was presented at ANI in the past and they all said that the prevailing sentiment was that the community does not enforce admin decorum.
