User talk:Ciphershort

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search



How are user pages contributing to Wikipedia on a whole? Seems pretty self-promoting if you ask me. Knowledge. Simple. Pure. Organized. "Thus do we refute entropy". [1] I hope so. Let's just hope the power stays on....Ciphershort 17:10, 29 December 2006 (UTC)

Thank you for your message and encouragement. I've been pretty overwhelmed with the amount of info available on Wikipedia but I've been studying the Adoptee's Area/Resources. Thanks!

What Wikipedia is not[edit]

I stumbled across what "Wikipedia is not" and had quite an interesting read. I then realized that I had gotten carried away with userboxes on my userpage. I will be removing all but what I feel are the bare essentials to Wikipedia development. So that I can help contribute to what Wikipedia is. --Christopher 22:36, 29 December 2006 (UTC)

Request for adoption[edit]

I see that were requesting adoption. Would you like me to adopt you? If you want to find out more about me, see my user page. You may also want to look at my description on the adopters' page.

Please end your message with 4 tildes, which will sign your username and the time you replied.. (~~~~) --TeckWizTalkContribs@ 22:45, 29 December 2006 (UTC)

I would appreciate being adopted by you. I noticed you have a dynamic and informative userpage. --Christopher 22:57, 29 December 2006 (UTC)
I'm very sorry about that. This happened with another user also. You page must of have been removed from my watchlist also, by accident. I guess I'll have to add another "last adoption" :). I've created a page for you to ask anything you want, here. --TeckWizTalkContribs@ 00:00, 5 January 2007 (UTC)

RE:Revert vs. Edit[edit]

Sorry, but I'm not sure what you think I did wrong. Would you mind clarifying? Simões (talk/contribs) 21:27, 23 January 2007 (UTC)

The revert was (accidentally) of the two previous edits. That's why there was a difference between my revert and the edit two lines down in the history. "rvv" is a common shorthand for "revert: vandalism." Simões (talk/contribs) 21:34, 24 January 2007 (UTC)

WP:UW future?[edit]

Hi, Sorry for the blatant spam, but you have yourself down as interested at WikiProject user warnings WP:UW. There is a discussion on going here that might be of interest to you about the future of this project. There are two strawpolls on the talk pages and the second one is about the future of the WP:UW project. Now we have the end in sight we are looking at wrapping up the project and merging it with Template messages/User talk namespace WP:UTM and creating a one stop shop for all userspace template issue. As you have yourself down as interested in this project we thought you may have some input on this issue, and would like you to visit the discussion and give any thoughts you may have on the matter.
