Happy Thanksgiving[edit]

Congrats to you guys today, great win!. It looks like you guys have found a talented young coach in Swinney. I'm thinking he gets the job. Good luck in your bowl game.--Thör hammer 02:21, 30 November 2008 (UTC)

RE: Whoops[edit]

No problem! :). I was just sitting there after I moved it going "shall I tag it as an unlikely redirect, or should I tag it as a test page? I mean, it's got 'test' in the title, so.." Ironholds (talk) 12:25, 12 September 2009 (UTC)

Request for additional information[edit]

Hello. Regarding your request for protection of the Donald Igwebuike article, could you clarify a couple of things for me? You stated in this edit that the information could only be included if it was properly sourced, but even after sources were provided, you continued to remove it noting that the editors re-adding the info and sources are socks of ViperNerd (talk · contribs). Also as a point of reference, Wikipedia:Banning policy does allow for the wholesale reversion of all edits by banned editors, however ViperNerd was blocked, not banned. Thanks, — Kralizec! (talk) 16:52, 14 September 2009 (UTC)

  • Sure, no problem. I disagree with the premise of your question that the article is now properly (well) sourced about a negative and contentious episode related to the subject. The listed references leave something to be desired. WP:BLP is very clear that unsourced or poorly sourced contentious material be immediately removed, and I believe the listed reference still falls short. In addition, the editor was definitely an IP sock of indefinitely-blocked User:ViperNerd and was continuing his past patterns of behavior of disrupting Wikipedia and attempting to create conflict and edit war rather than actually trying to help the project. The sock has been blocked under the sockpuppet investigation. As far as the revert that included the reference, I originally removed the unsourced, negative content per WP:BLP, then the sock showed up and reverted my edit and added a reference, but I reverted the edit and reported the sock. I gave more weight to WP:BLP concerns than protecting the edit privileges of an indefinitely blocked user. And yes, I do know the nuances between indefinitely-blocked and banned, but thanks for asking!--CobraGeek The Geek 01:13, 15 September 2009 (UTC)

Re: Need some assistance with conditional row code in a template[edit]

I'm so out of wiki editing it's sad. I took a quick shot, but it didn't work. My guess is that you've just got some extra white space in between some of the wiki conditional code, like {{if: {{{ ... that extra space between can sometimes be a big deal. That or extra line feeds. What I did (if you look at the history to the template) you'll see removed items 2-6 completely, even though they were used, and line 1 was on the same as the title. Sorry I can't really help you. MECUtalk 01:48, 15 September 2009 (UTC)

  • Okay, thanks a bunch for trying it out, I really do appreciate it. I took a look at the generated HTML in the final page, and for some reason there is an inserted paragraph and break after the final item:
<p><br /></p>
This HTML is not inserted after the other items in the list, so I need to find out why this is getting there, which kind of leads me right back to your suggestion - to look for the white space there in the code. Thanks again!--CobraGeek The Geek 01:56, 15 September 2009 (UTC)

College Football Project request[edit]

Hello! You are listed as an active member of the College Football Project! We have a large number of unreferenced biographies of living persons, but it works out to be just two or three articles per active participant. I've divided up the articles that need help and put them in a table on Wikipedia talk:WikiProject College football/Unreferenced BLPs. Please assist the project by researching and sourcing the articles that have been "assigned" (so to speak) to you.--Paul McDonald (talk) 02:44, 11 April 2010 (UTC)

Join us in 2011[edit]

The SEC/ACC football standings and bowl results on your user page are quite dated. But then again, most Clemson fans enjoy living in the past as far as athletic success is concerned. Did you happen to catch any of the 2010 or 2011 College World Series? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:56, 1 August 2011 (UTC)


Your abusive, harassing comments are no longer wanted on my talk page, do not post there again. Further violation of WP:HUSH will be reported to admins, and given your pattern of behavior you will likely find yourself blocked. Consider this your first and only warning. GarnetAndBlack (talk) 01:09, 2 October 2011 (UTC)

The only warning that is needed is that you need to make sure the admins don't find out that you are a sock of indefinitely blocked User:ViperNerd. If they do, you will shortly be here: [[1]].
Besides, I'm just responding to earlier posts you left on my user page. The only difference is you were gutless and wouldn't leave your signature.--CobraGeek The Geek 01:36, 2 October 2011 (UTC)
This warning is the first message I've ever left on your Talk page. If you've got some proof to the contrary, go file a report. Otherwise, throwing allegations of that sort around is in violation of WP:AGF and WP:NPA. If you've got any further harassment for me, post it here. One more comment on my Talk page along the lines of the abuse above will be reported to an admin. GarnetAndBlack (talk) 02:07, 2 October 2011 (UTC)


CHOKE!!!!!!!!!!!!! THE CURSE LIVES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OVERRATED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (You earned this one...karma sure can be a bitch, huh?) GarnetAndBlack (talk) 04:21, 30 October 2011 (UTC)

You are blocked for a week due to your ranting and attacks on GarnetAndBlack's talk page. User:Zscout370 (Return Fire) 23:30, 6 November 2011 (UTC)

Yep, here came the admins...[edit]

To block you for a week for petty, juvenile harassment. Much appreciation to Zscout370 for finally giving this immature person what he deserves. It's truly sad when someone uses Wikipedia for nothing but a childish agenda of taunting and fanboyism. GarnetAndBlack (talk) 02:49, 7 November 2011 (UTC)

Did you go to Miami?[edit]

Congrats on making bowl history! GarnetAndBlack (talk) 06:35, 5 January 2012 (UTC)

Request for help on Template:CFB Team Depth Chart/doc[edit]

I noticed you've done many of the edits on the CFB Team Depth Chart Template, so I've come to ask for help with an error I've noticed. When you do the reference on the depth chart as it is shown [url title], it just lists a reference mark in the reference list. It doesn't list the reference itself, and it doesn't link to the exterior reference. Now if you add the ref tag at the front and the end, it will list it twice in the bottom, once with just a triangle saying there is a link and once with the reference title itself. There has to be some way to correct this where it will show and link to the reference at the bottom in the reflist, which it currently doesn't. If you want an example, check out the page I've been working on, 2012 BYU Cougars football team. You'll notice the reflist shows there are references for the defensive and offensive starters, but it doesn't list them at the bottom and link to them off of Wiki like it should.

haven't seen you on wiki for the past FIVE years. wonder why that might be? LMAO. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:47, 9 January 2014 (UTC)
