Puzzle Solution

Is it either green or black?  ~Steptrip 01:49, 1 March 2007 (UTC)

Is it white, and why are the "S" s capitalized?  ~Steptrip 01:52, 1 March 2007 (UTC)
This is going to sound extremely ignorant, and please just tell me yes or no, but is it capital "S" s ?  ~Steptrip 01:56, 1 March 2007 (UTC)

Greetings message

It's a very visually attractive page. You may want to talk to people on the various greetings/welcome pages if they'd like your design. As a welcome message on a user talk page, it may be a tad too space-consuming. Xiner (talk, email) 19:43, 1 March 2007 (UTC)

Yeah, I prefer the absolute basics. You don't want to overwhelm the newbie with the whole Wikipedia on their head. Xiner (talk, email) 19:48, 1 March 2007 (UTC)

Could you please do something about your welcome template? It isn't closing itself, so edits made below it are being rolled up into the purple part. Corvus cornix 23:01, 1 March 2007 (UTC)

Yeah, I imagine you have to go back to those pages, since the template was subst'd. Sorry about that. Corvus cornix 23:08, 1 March 2007 (UTC)

You're welcome.  :) Corvus cornix 23:10, 1 March 2007 (UTC)

Hello Cremepuff, speaking of this welcome template, could you tell me where that template can be found? I really like the look of it and wouldn't mind using it myself when I welcome a new user, but I couldn't find it at a light search at WP:WT. Thanks! Fbv65edel / ☑t / ☛c || 03:32, 2 March 2007 (UTC)

Check out my userpage

Can you take a look at my new userpage (I will fill in the center part of it later).  ~Steptrip 02:03, 2 March 2007 (UTC)

Should we talk here or at my page?

Snidleysnide 21:53, 2 March 2007 (UTC)

I have a question about image tagging on the Bruce Hornsby article. I am going to try to find the paragraph that I just added to the help page, and post it here...give me a second...Snidleysnide 21:56, 2 March 2007 (UTC)

Ok, sorry, here's my question:

I've recently uploaded four images to the Bruce Hornsby article.

I used the


image tag, thinking that tag would allow me to give the source of the images appropriate credit.  Another User, User:Moeron brought to my attention that this tag is only used in cases where the original photographer is uploading work.  I made a mistake.  (In all fairness, I based my use of the tag on an image that appears on jam band, which seemed to be done correctly...evidently that was mistagged as well)  

My question is, how should these images be tagged? They are images from http://www.bruuuce.com, a Bruce Hornsby fan website, and the copyright is held by Si Twining, the owner and operator of the site. Prior to uploading the images, I asked his permissions, then, after having been made aware of my tagging error, I formally requested his permissions with the Wikipedia form letter.

I have received confirmation of permissions granted from the holder of copyrights for the images, and I have sent that information to the m:OTRS system for review. I am about to make note of this on each image page.

In the meantime, how should these images be tagged? Thanks Snidleysnide 21:58, 2 March 2007 (UTC)

Thanks anyway. It's been an ordeal. Other users have been uploading and mistagging images to many musician pages, and it has been a recent problem at Bruce Hornsby. I've even been accused of being a sock puppet of another user, so it has kind of gotten out of hand. Snidleysnide 22:07, 2 March 2007 (UTC)

Overreaction to the extreme

In regard to my "Impersonation" Jimbo Wales on your autograph book, you did indeed overreact to the extreme & I'm not the only one who thinks so. This is a reoccuring joke throughout Wikipedia & I take you have not, nor has anyone else other than you, complained about a harmless joke. I'm sorry I hurt your volatile feelings (You are a girl after all), but I was merely trying to be nice. If you can't recognise that, then there's not much I can do for you. Since you wanted Jimbo to sign, I thought I'd be nice & sign it for him (Like santa's helpers...). Never knew you would take a kind gesture so seriously. Now I've got admins threatening me & my names all over incidents pages because you acted like your user name suggests - a cremepuff. Now I'll give you an apology if that's what you want & I'm very sorry if I hurt your feelings with my good intentions. Remember, WP:AGF... Spawn Man 22:16, 2 March 2007 (UTC)

So are we cool now? I have no hard feelings against you. Have a nice day... Spawn Man 23:21, 2 March 2007 (UTC)

May I ask what this is? "Help? If you're mad at that Spawn Man, please let me know. --Cremepuff222 (talk, sign book) 23:23, 2 March 2007 (UTC)" Please do not meddle with vandalism warnings. In a future RfA of yours, someone may see this as taking the side of a vandal. Thank you. If you want me to take this to the incident's board then just say... Spawn Man 23:40, 2 March 2007 (UTC)

Now you're calling me unimportant & smelly? I protest & I'm taking this to an admin requesting you be blocked unless you apologise for uncivil edit summaries, calling me a pervert & requesting other users complain about me per WP:Spam.. Spawn Man 23:57, 2 March 2007 (UTC)

What do you need me to do?

I can't believe that someone would impersonate someone else! This is just WRONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I understand why your upset!


User:Chiefsfan364 |User_talk:Chiefsfan364 00:42, 3 March 2007 (UTC)

Cremepuff:

No. you do not have to apologize! (bad spelling) This is serious! You just let him wheedle his way out Again! Something needs to be done about this guy, and if your not going to do anything, I will. (ANGRY) (Not at you) ----User:Chiefsfan364 |User_talk:Chiefsfan364 01:07, 3 March 2007 (UTC)

RE:Article Issue

What was the problem with the Hacky Sack article? I'm sorry I couldn't respond as quickly as I wanted, as I was at my grandparents' house.  ~Steptrip 01:41, 3 March 2007 (UTC)

Various

Cremepuff222, I don't know if I explained this before you signed up under my tutelage, but I'm not a very intensive kind of tutor. I only hand out assignments every two weeks or so. If you're seeking more, it may be a good idea to seek an additional, or even another, tutor - really, it's not a problem with me. I don't want to hold anyone back.

Now, I've read your exchanges with SpawnMan, and sorry I didn't realize it'd gotten that far. He's done it before so his pleads for innocence fall on my deaf ears, but if I may have one suggestion for you: don't get led into useless arguments. State the facts, and if he disagrees, let him. Admins are obviously on the case, so you needn't worry about his jibes. Xiner (talk, email) 01:55, 3 March 2007 (UTC)

Yeah, I know how easy it is to be sucked into a dead-end argument. I've actually tried to pull myself away from the help desk and get back to the article writing business, but it's hard. If you want, you can read up on WP:AFD and other WP:XFDs. It's good to know how to destroy as well as create. Just kidding. Xiner (talk, email) 02:05, 3 March 2007 (UTC)
No, just read about AfD and XfD, and observe the discussions. As for SpawnMan, it's not a problem. Xiner (talk, email) 02:14, 3 March 2007 (UTC)

A medley of Comments

I agree with you on the subject of the userbox, however I can't edit the userbox without affecting the userpages of others who use that userbox (that besides, a user far more ignorant than you and I may come along and get in a quarrel with both of us :-) ). As for the Jimbo Wales impersonator, you should report him directly to an administrator (I suggest Alphachimp) on the grounds of impersonating an official on the English Wikipedia, being uncivil, trying to make sexual innuendos, being obnoxious, and using sexist language (the latter 2 of the above reasons are not really reportable but get on the nerves of editors).  ~Steptrip 02:16, 3 March 2007 (UTC)

Good point, however, if this guy continues this behavior, I implore you to report him to someone.

I have also edited a userbox without any disagreements, but adding only "his" or only "her" to the userbox would violate gender-neutral language, of which I am a supporter, and adding "his/her" to the userbox disrupts the flow of the rhythm of the words (this is not a very strong argument, I know, userboxes are all about images and the rhythm of words, as you most likely know).  ~Steptrip 02:25, 3 March 2007 (UTC)

I've fixed the userbox issue.  ~Steptrip 02:41, 3 March 2007 (UTC)

Yeah easy for you to say:

Yes it's easy for you to say that this argument is over. I've got about 3 people that have called me a pervert & that I sexually harrassed you. You know why Cremepuff?????? Because you freakin told freakin EVERYONE!!!! So now I'm going to have this black mark over me because you took things way out of control & blabbed around to everyone. Thanks a bunch! I can't handle this - I've had too much rubbish in my real life without all these people I don't know judging me on stuff I didn't do.... Spawn Man 02:57, 3 March 2007 (UTC)

Thanks, but it's too little too late. I am a nice person & would never sexual harrass anyone. You know why, because I've had to put up with myself in real life. Now everyone thinks I'm a pervert becuase you got all your friends to give you advice on how to pursecute me. I don't think I can stay on Wikipedia if people start thinking that about me...

Re: Adoption

I'd be more than happy to adopt you. Please see the tag I added to your page and we'll go from there! --Theunicyclegirl 19:51, 3 March 2007 (UTC)

Yes, and you should remove {{adoptoffer}}. --Theunicyclegirl 19:55, 3 March 2007 (UTC)

First assignment

Before I can make suggestions, what kind of help do you want? What do you want to improve on? --Theunicyclegirl 20:03, 3 March 2007 (UTC)

No, that was my fault. I thought I remembered seeing some rule that an adoptee can only have one adopter but then I checked and saw:

Adoptees only need to have one Adopter (though they can have more).

--Theunicyclegirl 20:16, 3 March 2007 (UTC)

Here's a list...

       * Formatting tables, pictures, text
       * Reporting vandalism/innopropriate user names/unkind users
       * General Editing Rules
       * Citing sources
       * RfA etc. voting
   Is that okay?

Those are all great. I am particularly good at #2 and #3, but I have sufficient experience to help you with all of the others. I won't as much assign you to do things, but I will give you suggestions and help you carry them out. My first suggestion is to read these articles: Wikipedia:Vandalism, Wikipedia:Simplified Ruleset, and Help:Reverting. These pages all contain necessary information for you to start. Then you should go to New Pages and look for anything that looks like it needs editing or needs to be deleted. You will want to be familiar with Wikipedia:Templates but the best way to become familiar with those is to use them in a hands-on setting. If you find an article that fits Wikipedia:Criteria for speedy deletion, use the appropriate Template. Make sure to warn the author of its request for deletion by using the code at the bottom of the speedy deletion box. Also, you can use the templates to warn them if they vandalized, created an inappropriate page, etc. I'm sorry to tell you so much, but it all sort of comes in one big chunk. My number one rule, though? Ask questions! Good luck! --Theunicyclegirl 20:16, 3 March 2007 (UTC)

Good luck!

That's for sure! Please don't hesitate to ask me any questions! I'm hanging out on the New pages anyway so you might see my edits! ;P

--Theunicyclegirl 20:20, 3 March 2007 (UTC)

Assignment

If you want a copyediting assignment, copyedit Hair dye stripping. It is a very new page with quite a few errors and style problems. --Theunicyclegirl 20:27, 3 March 2007 (UTC)

That's an understatement. So, pop quiz! If you see an article like this, what is the first thing you do? --Theunicyclegirl 20:29, 3 March 2007 (UTC)
*Applauds* Very nice! You got an A+! --Theunicyclegirl 20:34, 3 March 2007 (UTC)
Part 2 of your assignment: Follow through with it and then begin to edit. When you're done, I'll check your copyedits just to make sure you have the basics down. --Theunicyclegirl 20:36, 3 March 2007 (UTC)
That's fine, I just want a general idea of what you can do. --Theunicyclegirl 21:31, 3 March 2007 (UTC)
Just one: here --Theunicyclegirl 21:34, 3 March 2007 (UTC)
It's very good. Good enough to get rid of the cleanup tag. You might want to add the expand tag on there, though, because it definitely needs it. That's not your fault though. ;) How has the reading been going? Have you made it over to the New pages yet? Sorry I was gone, I was taking a wikibreak. ;) --Theunicyclegirl 21:37, 3 March 2007 (UTC)

Templates

That's definitely a legitimate problem. Here's my interpretation of speedy deletion templates (examples in quotes are taken from real pages):

Code Example Use
{{db-attack}} "zach dunlap is a gay fag, so please dont delete it!" For a page that someone created to abuse/insult another person
{{db-author}} (I don't have an example, this one isn't used often) If the author was the only/major editor of the page and he/she requested its deletion
{{db-bio}} Random Person was born in 2003 in Whoknowswhere, Colorodo... For a page about someone with no great importance
{{db-blanked}} " " If a page was made by mistake or if it is blank.
{{db-copyvio|url=source url}} (Obviously copyright infringement) See <---
{{db-empty}} Sewing machines use thread. For a really short article that doesn't show its importance, context, or is included in another article.
{{db-nonsense}} akl;kfjaghjashfg;lkghj A page of gobbledegook.
{{db-spam}} Go to www.randompage.com and buy your random pages today! A page blatantly advertising something.
{{db-reason|reason goes here}} (None) If the reason isn't included in any other speedy deletion templates but is in the criteria for speedy deletion.
{{db-repost}} (None) If the example had been previously deleted but was then reposted.
{{db-vandalism}} "BLAHBLAHBLAHBLAHBLAHBLAH..." For vandalizing xD
{{delete}} (None) If you have no reason (I wouldn't suggest using this)

--Theunicyclegirl 21:59, 3 March 2007 (UTC)

On a user's page you should add the little bit at the bottom (for example on the {{db-bio}} one, you should post: {{subst:nn-warn|Wikipedia:Template messages/Deletion}} ~~~~ ) Also, if it's vandalizing, edit tests, blanking, or things like that you should post the correct warning on Wikipedia:Template messages/User talk namespace. --Theunicyclegirl 22:07, 3 March 2007 (UTC)
I'm assuming you meant on the user talk namespace. Yes, there is one for each degree of vandalism. {{uw-vandalism1}} makes a box that says, pretty much, "The edit you added was counterproductive and was removed." {{uw-vandalism2}} says something like, "You've been adding info that isn't helpful, please stop." {{uw-vandalism3}} says, essentially, "Please stop vandalizing." {{uw-vandalism4}} pretty much says, "This is your final warning, stop NOW." And {{uw-vandalism4im}} is only used for really bad vandalism. It says, pretty much, "If you do this one more time you will be blocked." --Theunicyclegirl 22:17, 3 March 2007 (UTC)

Step-by-step

  1. Find the bit at the very bottom of the pink warning box that says,

Please consider placing {{subst:spam-warn|RealNerds}} ~~~~ or {{subst:spam-warn|RealNerds|header=1}} ~~~~ on the User Talk page of the author.

  1. Copy either (I use the first one, they're essentially the same)
  2. Click on the history tab of the article where you can see the edits that have been made
  3. Scroll to the first edit where the page was created
  4. Click on the name of the user -- it will take you to his/her user page
  5. Click on the discussion tab at the top of the user page
  6. Paste the syntax (the bit you copied) into the message
  7. Hit save

PART TWO!

Hope this helps!

--Theunicyclegirl 22:24, 3 March 2007 (UTC)

You're welcome and thank you! This is my first time ever adopting someone, but I'm doing my best! ;D I would keep hanging around New pages for a while until you get used to the templates. You can also practice your copyediting there. --Theunicyclegirl 22:32, 3 March 2007 (UTC)

Another thing, I know that Wikipedia is not a soapbox, and that it is morally wrong to gossip, but this is something that I feel that you should know: Essjay (an administrator, bureaucrat, oversight, CheckUser, and Employee of Wikia, Inc.) has retired because he used false academic credentials to gain those positions? Please do not spread this gossip (I've left these comments on this page and on Alphachimp's talk page and I don't want to spread it anymore). -Steptrip 17:41, 4 March 2007 (UTC)

I think pretty much everyone who would be interested in this information has heard about the situation by now. For better or worse, it's been fairly widely discussed. Newyorkbrad 17:47, 4 March 2007 (UTC)
You can find your monobook file here (the page title is User:Cremepuff222/monobook.js, note that the m in monobook must be lowercase). -Steptrip 18:20, 4 March 2007 (UTC)
<!--[[User:Cremepuff222/sigContract]];Cremepuff222--> must be changed to <!--[[User:Where/sigContract]];Cremepuff222-->, since the master code (or bot, whichever term that you want to use) is in User:Where's userspace.  ~Steptrip 18:26, 4 March 2007 (UTC)
Congrats, it is correct. -Steptrip 18:29, 4 March 2007 (UTC)
It basically means "Do not modify any of these message boxes." (I'm going to add <!--Do not edit above this line--> to clarify everything.) -Steptrip 18:32, 4 March 2007 (UTC)

Formatting Issue

Are you referring to the code in the edit window? -Steptrip 18:38, 4 March 2007 (UTC)

Thanks, just set the following code as your raw signature in your "My Preferences" menu with the "<!--[[User:Where/sigContract]];Cremepuff222--> and <!--ESC:Cremepuff22--> surrounding it, then append two new comments to my talk page:

<span style="font-family: Monotype Corsiva; font-size: 12pt">[[User:Cremepuff222|<font color="008000">--Cremepuff222</font>]] ([[User talk:Cremepuff222|<font color="2F4F4F">talk</font>]], [[User:Cremepuff222/Autograph Book|<font color="2F4F4F">sign book</font>]]) </span>

Can you append your signature source code (directly from your Preferences Menu) to my sandbox, which is located here. -Steptrip 19:13, 4 March 2007 (UTC)
PS: I've fixed your edit count hyperlink (removed the square and arrow from the text). -Steptrip 19:18, 4 March 2007 (UTC)
Let me rephrase that last direction: Copy and paste your source code between <nowiki></nowiki> tags. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Steptrip (talkcontribs) 19:21, 4 March 2007 (UTC).

Page size

Copy and paste into a text file. Your browser will give you an estimate, too. If the article is really big, MediaWiki will let you know when you try to edit the article. Xiner (talk, email) 22:06, 4 March 2007 (UTC)

I've Fixed It Mwa Ha Ha Ha!!

Just copy and paste the following code into the signature box in your preferences menu (remember to make sure that the raw signature box is checked):

-[[User:Cremepuff222|Cremepuff222]]

-Steptrip 22:52, 4 March 2007 (UTC)

RE:What was wrong

You had two hyphens immediately preceding your username in your old signature, which was somehow interfering with the script (most likely caused by the hyphen automatically added to your contracted signature in the edit window by the script :-). -Steptrip 22:56, 4 March 2007 (UTC)

No, it was a mistake that I'm surprised that I didn't make (I know you're probably not interested in my problems, but I haven't received a single barnstar). -Steptrip 23:00, 4 March 2007 (UTC)

Barnstar

Do you mind if I put it on a new page devoted to barnstars? -Steptrip 23:13, 4 March 2007 (UTC)

No idea.

But remember WP:DENY. Xiner (talk, email) 23:23, 4 March 2007 (UTC)

For XfD edit summaries, try to keep the section name, so others will know at a glance which nomination you're commenting/voting on. Say what the vote is, too. Xiner (talk, email) 01:06, 5 March 2007 (UTC)
It may be easier to leave the automatic edit summary alone and add your comments/votes to the end, like this or this or this. Also, if a discussion is overwhelming one way or the other, there's no need to add another comment, since XfD's are not supposed to be polls anyway. Xiner (talk, email) 01:30, 5 March 2007 (UTC)

Sig

Could you append your signature source code from your preferences menu to my sandbox between <nowiki></nowiki> tags, and leave two comments on my talk page, yet again: I noticed that the sig in my barnstar has changed. Sorry for the inconvenience. -Steptrip 00:05, 5 March 2007 (UTC)

False Alarm!

Sorry, can you resign that barnstar then? -Steptrip 01:25, 5 March 2007 (UTC)

New Solution

Try this code:

-[[User:Cremepuff222|Cremepuff222]]

I hope this will be an ironclad solution. -Steptrip 01:32, 5 March 2007 (UTC)

In case you didn't know...

You may find this interesting, but I wouldn't advertise it. Xiner (talk, email) 03:09, 5 March 2007 (UTC)

Userpage design request

Cool new user page!User:Trampton

Hi Cremepuff222. My name is Appleworm and I'd love to have a nice user page like yours. Would you please design my userpage as I'm totally ignorant of coding. Hope for your reply. Cheers! Appleworm 15:43, 5 March 2007 (UTC)

Hey Cremepuff222, this is moorematthews, I have the same request as Appleworm. Because I too am lost when it comes to coding and page designs etc etc. If you can help I'll get you some information that you may need. Thanks Moorematthews 16:35, 5 March 2007 (UTC)

OH, IT'S SO BEAUTIFUL. I'D LOVE IT. THANKS A LOT!!^_^. Uhm, can I copy the code now? Appleworm 09:21, 6 March 2007 (UTC)

RfA

Hello there. I was just looking at your RFA, and very strange it seems from the absence of comments. Perhaps related to the absence of edits in articles? Sandpiper 19:38, 5 March 2007 (UTC)

I would think only by divine intervention, since it is now part of the administrative record. Sandpiper 23:12, 5 March 2007 (UTC)

Too much to encapsulate in one header

Just a few questions:

  1. have you added the code that I appended to your talk page about 3 comments above to your sig box?
  2. You have an RfA?

Good luck, -Steptrip 01:25, 6 March 2007 (UTC)

A medley of responses to responses

  1. I didn't hear from you in a few days, and I was wondering if you had added the code.
2. I was the same way when I came to Wikipedia, I WANTED POWER!

By the Way, I have a mathematics test tomorrow, so I will be off and on Wikipedia, I just thought I'd throw it put there :D -Steptrip 01:35, 6 March 2007 (UTC)

My mistake, I must have misread the contribs log; my math test is in school Have you noticed that if you skim down your talk page very quickly, you see many multi colored sigs everywhere, so let me add one (no annoyance intended): -Steptrip 01:43, 6 March 2007 (UTC)

If an answer is what you seek, at my Babel Boxes you should take a peek. -Steptrip 00:08, 7 March 2007 (UTC)

Are you referring to my real name? (And I do support gender-neutral language, if I do not know the gender of whom I am talking about.) -Steptrip 00:40, 7 March 2007 (UTC)

Now I have heard of some odd coincidences, but this is just outright extremely unlikely and equally abnormal. Do you like any of Edgar Allan Poe's poems? -Steptrip 01:03, 7 March 2007 (UTC)

I agree, as I finished reading it approx. 5 min. ago :D by the way, you misspelled "tildes" at the top of your talk page, and does Smartie960 want to know where I got my Bouncing wiki logo? -Steptrip 01:27, 7 March 2007 (UTC)
I agree about my headings being cliche, I'll have to try to make headers more relevant to the message (or at least not use "A Medley of Comments" or "A Medley of responses" and I just updated my sig, tell me if you like it as I'm close to taking a poll on how many people like my sigs :-D ). -Steptrip 01:36, 7 March 2007 (UTC)
I see that you clicked my "Do not click here" button, but no, you are not in any kind of trouble (by the way I just noticed that my sigs were acting up, and I am happy to say that I fixed the porblem:D.-Steptrip 02:32, 7 March 2007 (UTC)

Userboxes

Go to Wikipedia:Userboxes. It teaches you to make a userbox on there. I apologize that I haven't been online recently -- I've been sick. I've only logged on for a second to check my messages ;) --Theunicyclegirl 23:26, 7 March 2007 (UTC)

Anna Foxlover

I can't believe that she (or he) got blocked because of asking too many users to sign her autograph book (myself being one of them), and I really can't believe that Alphachimp would delete her autographs. I believe that everyone should take a look at the quote on this page (unless you have the same quote on your Autograph page).

P.S. Can you sign my autograph book (it's the tilde in my sig)? -Steptrip 01:37, 8 March 2007 (UTC)

Where do you see that your page was nominated for deletion? And I agree about the multi-page edits being spam. Hopefully there will be -Steptrip 01:43, 8 March 2007 (UTC)
Strike that last comment, I see it. You can discuss this on the nominator's talk page, the actual deletion nomination itself, or, obviously, omit the parts of the page that do not confirm with WP:MYSPACE (although I do not see how your userpage could be nominated on those grounds, as you include some of your Wikipedia-related activities, and the whole thing was based on the autograph book fiasco and an edit count). I hope this consolation helps. Hopefully there will be some -Steptrip 01:49, 8 March 2007 (UTC)

Userpages nominated for deletion

I have nominated many of your user pages for deletion as they seem to run afoul of WP:NOT#MYSPACE. You may comment on the matter at Wikipedia:Miscellany for deletion/User:Cremepuff222. —dgiestc 01:45, 8 March 2007 (UTC)

I wish I'd brought this up with you earlier, Cremepuff222. I too have noticed that you have used the account mainly for user talk page activities. Also, please note that I cannot participate in the MfD you told me about, due to WP:CANVASS. Please be prepared that most of the pages may end up being deleted. If you promise to start contributing to the project (building an encyclopedia), maybe you can save your user page. Xiner (talk, email) 01:54, 8 March 2007 (UTC)

Under the special circumstances here, Xiner, I think your participation would be in order and would in fact be quite helpful. You can certainly comment on the situation, even if you don't cast a !vote. Newyorkbrad 01:55, 8 March 2007 (UTC)
  • Why did you just nominate my user page for deletion? I'm pretty sure that I haven't included too much personal information about myself, and it's surely quite unlike myspace. The only thing that I think could be considered social networking is the "About Me" section, but otherwise nothing is overly social. The "Expertise" section is merely to find users who need help with that specific subject, and I can only think of a few people that don't have a "Userbox" or "Awards" section. The user page service is merely to help other users that don't have Wiki-markup skills. Could you please tell me your reasoning? Thank you. -Cremepuff222 01:46, 8 March 2007 (UTC)
These are all similar to things we generally allow in userspace, but the creation and improvement of them seems to be the only reason you are a member of the project. For a significant contributer to the project, I would not have made the nom, but it seems all you're here for is free web hosting. —dgiestc 02:08, 8 March 2007 (UTC)
If I start contributing to the encylcopedia, will I be alright? I recently started a page for my school, and have begun to edit it quite extensively. -Cremepuff222 02:11, 8 March 2007 (UTC)
The thing is, all this time you could have been helping the project, and instead you were just working on your homepage. To make a bunch of mainspace edits right away is kind of missing the point. Don't despair. It's possible people will decide to let it slide, and if they don't you can still ask an admin to retrieve a deleted version for you to put it back up on one of the many sites that provide wiki hosting. —dgiestc 02:21, 8 March 2007 (UTC)
I think the concern that has been expressed is not so much your userpage itself, as all the subpages. See the deletion nomination that is linked to above, and the people's comments on it. This is actually all being said in the spirit of getting you more involved in the article editing other work which are what the project is all about. Newyorkbrad 02:23, 8 March 2007 (UTC)

Cremepuff222, please read the advice given you assuming good faith. Also, another way to stay with the project without contributing to articles would be to become a developer. Xiner (talk, email) 02:41, 8 March 2007 (UTC)

Thank you for your kind words. I went to the library for the first time in a long while this week, and took out a book on Manchukuo. That article seriously needs citations, and guess what, a good book on any topic would be a great help to the project. You can take out a book on Polar Bear, and find lots of stuff to write about. That's one idea. I'll let you think it over at leisure. Xiner (talk, email) 02:57, 8 March 2007 (UTC)
You may not understand, but you have about 46 discovered subpages. I know of no other editor who has that many - & they are from someone who has contributed so little to the actual article writing process of Wikipedia. To put it simply, you have not earned the right to have that many subpages. Even if you did start editing articles, the number of subpages you have would undoubtedly need to come down anyway. You can easily compress them - your autograph book can be included on your talk page - user boxes can also be included on your user page or on a single subpage. There are many options, but you simply have too many subpages... Spawn Man 03:51, 8 March 2007 (UTC)

Unless you want to became mad, yes. If the userboxes don't take arguments, you can create a single userbox, which, with an #if statement, decide what text you want to display from the argument that you pass to it. Snowolf(talk)CONCOI - 22:19, 8 March 2007 (UTC)

Delete everything from your monobook.js file up to the TWINKLE scripts. then add the code from here immediately AFTER the TWINKLE Scripts (include one line empty of text between the TWINKLE scripts and the code I've fixed).

Free images should be uploaded to the Commons, so that any Wikipedia project, including en.wiki, can use the image. Cheers. Xiner (talk, email) 03:41, 10 March 2007 (UTC)

My RfA

Balloon arch.jpg Thank you for your support in my my recent RfA in which I withdrew because the oppose votes were almost equalling the supporters. I then decided to leave my account (Tellyaddict) and start fresh under a new username, however I quickly decided to reconsider after another user persuaded me not to leave the account - I am now glad I did reconsider because leaving that account and creating a new one was too hasty so I've decided to improve rather than starting again! I hope we can remain civil and that there were no negative feelings caused. Again, thanks for your support even though I withdrew it, your vote is much appreciated! Regards - Tellyaddict (Talk) 19:41, 10 March 2007 (UTC)

Hello

Thanks for asking! I'm feeling a little better. And thanks for the compliment. I got the idea from your userpage actually. ;) How are things with you? --User:Theunicyclegirl 00:21, 11 March 2007 (UTC)

Yeah, there's a ton of stuff going around here. Stomach bug, chest cold, head cold, strep ... urgh. I knew I was bound to catch something. xP Not much has been going on with me either. I've been waiting to get approved for VandalProof, but there's a mile-long waiting list. Whats up with the MfD thing anyway? --Theunicyclegirl 00:29, 11 March 2007 (UTC)
"This user has made only 83 main space edits, but over 1200 edits to their own user space." Ha! Is he/she serious? Wow! You really do spend some time on your user page! --Theunicyclegirl 00:31, 11 March 2007 (UTC)
Yeah, I've been hearing about it. It seems pretty pointless to me... --Theunicyclegirl 00:34, 11 March 2007 (UTC)
Mmmm ... it takes time-- *pause for a cough attack* --too.
Ha ha! You're right! I deleted one. Like my new userboxes?--Theunicyclegirl 01:09, 11 March 2007 (UTC)
Yes, they're my little obsession. Muahahaha! Must ... have ... more! --Theunicyclegirl 01:12, 11 March 2007 (UTC)
I have a ton also! I placed them on a subpage, as per request by Xiner. Speaking of Xiner, how are things going between you too two? (I saw the message that you left for him :)

See above edit. ;P That's me being hypercritical. I only wrote it about a minute ago. We'll see.--Theunicyclegirl 01:17, 11 March 2007 (UTC)

Permanent link

It's exactly that, a permanent link! Ehm, it gives you the current version of the document, as if you'd hit the "history" tab and click on the time link of that version. Does that make sense? Xiner (talk, email) 00:38, 11 March 2007 (UTC)

Not quite. A diff is a difference between two versions; "Permanent link" gives you the URL for the latest version of the article, but only if you're viewing the latest version. If you're looking at an older version, the "Permanent link" link is disabled.
To put it another way, say you want to give your friend the page Polar Bear. If you give the normal URL (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polar_Bear), the version your friend sees may be different from the one you last saw, because edits are made all the time. So a shortcut to giving your friend the current version is to click "Permanent link". Notice the change in the URL bar of your browser. Xiner (talk, email) 01:00, 11 March 2007 (UTC)

reply

Please see Majorly's comment on your signature on my talk page. I'd suggest the following for your sig: [[User:Cremepuff222|<font color="#008000">Cremepuff222</font>]] ([[User talk:Cremepuff222|<font color="#2F4F4F">talk</font>]]) Xiner (talk, email) 01:57, 11 March 2007 (UTC)

Perhaps. Please note that most people do not have signature scripts, and scripts are to be avoided anyway in signatures. Remember, we're here to edit. Fancy sigs just take longer to scroll through. Xiner (talk, email) 02:06, 11 March 2007 (UTC)

RE:Signature

It looks a bit like mine (as far as color transitions go). By the way, are you using Internet explorer (this may have caused the TWINKLE Scripts to act up) ?  ~Steptrip 02:12, 11 March 2007 (UTC)

Can I also change the width and colors of your headers to hide the gray lines and to make the header's color match up with the default page background ? -Steptrip 02:16, 11 March 2007 (UTC)
I apologize that I post messages in such a manner that you have to immediately come back to this page after you post a comment on my talk page, but here's the point: I have logged onto Wikipedia using IE with TWINKLE installed, and all of my scripts quit functioning, however, when I logged onto Wikipedia using Firefox all of my scripts became fully functional again because TWINKLE does not work in IE (just to be clear, I am not endorsing either web browser). -Steptrip 02:22, 11 March 2007 (UTC)

RE:All userspace headers

I've finally fixed all of your headers (at least I think that I did, please tell me if I did not fix all of them). -Steptrip 03:28, 11 March 2007 (UTC)

A wikibreak is not a bad idea, and thanks for the barnstar, but what'd really make me happy is you working on the encyclopedia. So get it together and show people what you can do! Xiner (talk, email) 19:31, 11 March 2007 (UTC)

That's cool. You may want to read my message to another user about edit summaries while on RC patrol. Have fun. Xiner (talk, email) 22:35, 12 March 2007 (UTC)

Wikia

I noticed someone had signed Angela's Wikia guestbook with the name Cremepuff222, but did not actually register that name. Whether it's you or not, I thought you'd like to know. Wodup 05:47, 12 March 2007 (UTC)

I thought that if you wanted to use the name Cremepuff222 on that wiki, you'd register it so that no one else does. That's just what I would have done. Wodup 22:06, 12 March 2007 (UTC)

RE:Anon user

I didn't notice, as it was reverted extremely quickly. The vandal was one that I warned and reverted, so they decided to vandalize my userpage as retaliation. I looked into it, however, and I found that approx. 12 minutes after I reverted his edits, he was blocked for 24 hrs.  ~Steptrip 23:43, 12 March 2007 (UTC)

Can you tell him/her to ask me the next time that he/she has a question, as I am wondering if he/she even remembers that I adopted him/her due to the lack of queries (if you know his/her gender, please tell me, as I am getting tired of typing "him/her and his/her and he/she). As for the Editor review, sure I will as soon as I can find the necessary statistics.  ~Steptrip 23:49, 12 March 2007 (UTC)
I'll alert him that I will put a status changer on my userpage to clear up any confusion. I've reviewed you and I hope that it was helpful.  ~Steptrip 23:59, 12 March 2007 (UTC)
No problem. Do you really program in TI-BASIC and VisualBasic ?  ~Steptrip 00:04, 13 March 2007 (UTC)
Why don't you try to write a bot script? As for the script in the editor review, it adds the Anti-vandal tool to the left-hand side of the Window in the toolbox menu.  ~Steptrip 00:09, 13 March 2007 (UTC)
Now you can add the Twinkle scripts back into your monobook.js :D  ~Steptrip 00:20, 13 March 2007 (UTC)
Lord have mercy, did you write all of those scripts yourself, (I know nothing about JavaScript, so if it is something that anyone who knows anything about JavaScript could write, I am not one of those people) or did you copy them from other places?  ~Steptrip 00:52, 13 March 2007 (UTC)

You have alerted me of information that concerns myself, so now it is my turn:

Xiner's RfA ended ca. 20 minutes ago ... the good part ... it was successful !! I'm glad that the community finally had some sense and granted sysop status to an experienced editor (not to say that current sysops are ignorant).

 ~Steptrip 00:23, 14 March 2007 (UTC)

No problem. -Steptrip 01:11, 14 March 2007 (UTC)

Thank you, Cremepuff222. I'm sorry I had to be curt during the RfA, which I've reason to believe had to do with your pages being nominated for deletion. But they are in the past now, and rest assured I will wield my tools responsibly. Thanks again for your vote. Xiner (talk, email) 01:15, 14 March 2007 (UTC)

Sorry that I took so long, as my sig was acting up. I'm going to NYC as part of a fine arts program in which I am a member of the Drama Department and we go on a field trip every year. Last year:Charleston, SC. This year:NYC. Next year: Washington, DC. P.S. Have you noticed how far this discussion has digressed from Xiner's RfA ? -Steptrip 02:28, 14 March 2007 (UTC)

Watchlisting a talk page

If you're waiting for a reply, then yes, you should watchlist it. But note that you always watchlist the article along with the talk page. You can't watch one without the other. Xiner (talk, email) 01:00, 15 March 2007 (UTC)

Btw, just so people don't complain about your talk page edit count, you don't have to thank me anymore for my help. I know you appreciate it, and that's good enough for me. :) Xiner (talk, email) 01:04, 15 March 2007 (UTC)
Well, it is kind of contrary to real-life manners, so if you feel strongly about it, I'll leave "you're welcome" messages on your talk page, too. Xiner (talk, email) 02:12, 15 March 2007 (UTC)

Vandal report

Hi there. Looks like our mutual friend 7pac went anonymous as 158.59.242.67 and vandalised your page and Gogo Dodo's page. Nothing further so far, but I'm keeping him on my watchlist for a while. Take care. --Finngall 17:30, 16 March 2007 (UTC)

I'm Really sorry about this.... It was my idiot brother who was doing it earlier today...He also changed my user profile alot...

Blocked?

Xiner, if you could please help me with this, it appears that my brother, who shares the same I.P. address as I, has gotten blocked from Wikipedia. Whenever I try to edit a page, I get a message saying that I can't edit because my I.P. has been blocked. Can you please help me? --Cremepuff222 (talk, review me!) 02:35, 17 March 2007 (UTC)

WILL ANYONE WHO READS THIS PLEASE TELL XINER THAT I NEED HELP??

Your request to be unblocked has been granted for the following reason(s):

Autoblock of 66.172.228.21 lifted or expired.

Request handled by:  Netsnipe  ►  11:51, 17 March 2007 (UTC)

Note: According to this, PizzaBurgerJuice (talk contribs) is your brother. I'll assume good faith this time based upon your editing history, but you may not be so lucky should this happen again with your IP address. Wikipedia has a very low threshold for tolerating Wikipedia:Sock_puppetry. --  Netsnipe  ►  11:56, 17 March 2007 (UTC)

I agree, and I'd suggest that you, Cremepuff, have a talk with your parents and your brother about this situation, because another admin may hold a dimmer view of the situation, and I being your adopter would probably violate a bunch of rules if I ever unblock you. Please see Wikipedia:Sock puppetry, too. Thank you. Xiner (talk, email) 12:46, 17 March 2007 (UTC)

Hi Cremepuff!

Hey there! I noticed you were online so I decided to drop you a message. I'm just about to review your recent edits to try to offer some help ... I feel like I haven't been doing enough as your adopter. Drop a message by! --Theunicyclegirl 21:13, 17 March 2007 (UTC)

Ooh! I noticed you're using VandalProof and Twinkle. I applied for VandalProof but they denied me access because I'm 110 mainspace edits short. It's annoying because most of my edits are like putting speedy deletion templates on articles, but recently I've been helping out with Wikipedia:WikiProject Red Link Recovery and Wikipedia:Requested articles. These will boost my mainspace edits ... :D Sorry, I'm sort of thinking aloud (aka rambling ;P) --Theunicyclegirl 21:17, 17 March 2007 (UTC)
How would that be difficult to handle? I just ran some quick searches -- it took no time at all. -EDIT- Oh, and I'm feeling much better, thank you! --Theunicyclegirl 21:19, 17 March 2007 (UTC)
Whoa! That was the weirdest thing. I was looking at your recent contributions and I could've sworn I'd seen some reverted vandalism with VP. Then I just looked a second ago -- *poof*! It's gone! Whooo! Maybe I'm just loopy xD. --Theunicyclegirl 21:22, 17 March 2007 (UTC)
!!! I never saw that edit! I don't often check my talk page's backlog so I must've missed it ... maybe he took it off himself. Wow -- I'm going to go do something about that! Thanks for the heads up! --Theunicyclegirl 21:24, 17 March 2007 (UTC)
No, I'm glad you did! It'll at least teach him a lesson to be careful what he posts, it can't be permanently deleted. --Theunicyclegirl 21:26, 17 March 2007 (UTC)
Eh, I wouldn't worry about it. He really needs to be called on it. He's online right now, what do you think: click me! Scroll DOOOWWWWNNN... :D --Theunicyclegirl 21:31, 17 March 2007 (UTC)

Re: A couple of notes...

  1. Ehm... did I? I'd be more than happy to! You're talking about the editor review, am I right?
  2. With your brother?

By the way, still no response from Bobo... --Theunicyclegirl 21:35, 17 March 2007 (UTC)

Ha. I want an explanation first. It was out of line. *feels like some creepy old principal* xD --Theunicyclegirl 21:36, 17 March 2007 (UTC)
  1. Oh, I see where the confusion was! I'll do an editor review though, if you like! I may not finish it before I have to log off, though ... which will be soon.
  2. Yeah, I saw that as I was scrolling through. I assume you figured it out though, by the sheer fact that you're talking to me right now. --Theunicyclegirl 21:40, 17 March 2007 (UTC)

Your userpage

Looks good. One of these days I'll copyedit it - you can revert anything you don't like. One thing I'd change is removing the empty spaces around User:Cremepuff222/Menu. Xiner (talk, email) 02:45, 18 March 2007 (UTC)

When your homepage stabilizes, I can delete its history for you, and your edit count will go down immediately (the old versions would still be available to admins - I'd basically delete your page and restore the last version). Xiner (talk, email) 02:50, 18 March 2007 (UTC)
It's perfectly legal so long as you're not doing it to hide anything, not including lowering your user space editcount. I once got it done via WP:ANI, but most admins are too busy with real/important stuff to do it often. Of course, if you do do it too often, someone will complain that you're using your time on trivial stuff. Xiner (talk, email) 02:58, 18 March 2007 (UTC)

In addition, we got to spend 4 hours shopping on Fifth Avenue (the Apple store and FAO Schwarz). The only bad thing was that it snowed like there was no tomorrow, there were very strong winds, and I stepped (pardon this bad pun) in slush many times, and I couldn't find a taxi, so I had to walk through it. All in all, it was a great trip (how many bad puns am I going to make), despite the inclement weather.  ~Steptrip 18:13, 18 March 2007 (UTC)

A good question

Unfortunately, your edits to deleted pages/images won't show up in your contribs. Xiner (talk, email) 20:05, 18 March 2007 (UTC)

It's talking about thge number of pages you've edited. Xiner (talk, email) 20:11, 18 March 2007 (UTC)

No, the term "unique" refers to the number of distinct pages you've edited. For example, if you made 10 edits to Polar Bear, then you've edited one unique page, but if you made five edits each to Polar Bear and Polar bear cub, then you've edited two unique pages. Hope that clarifies. Xiner (talk, email) 20:21, 18 March 2007 (UTC)

Question

Thank you for comming to my help request. I have been trying revert a few pages that have either been partialy vandelised or where new informaation has been added but there is no sorce to back up the claim. I have tried to revert, but with no luck. Everytime i check it in prewiew it has not worked the way it should have done, so i just leave it. I can't quite work out what i do worng despite checking my actions. Any idea as to what i might be doing wrong? Thank you for your time. Hon.DJP 21:06, 18 March 2007 (UTC)

Yes, you may have one

For reverting vandalism, copyediting, and your work at WP:MOTD. I'm sure you've done a lot more, but I thought giving you a combo barnstar would be best. Peace, Tohru Honda13 01:06, 19 March 2007 (UTC)

You have mistakenly identified my edit as vandalism

In the article on Phenomenon, I rearranged the sections in a more logical way, so that the general use of the term comes before the...well, not general. However you (or more likely your script, since it happened so quickly) reverted the edit, and accused me of vandalism:

Reverted 1 edit by Am088 identified as vandalism to last revision by Peterdjones. using TW

According to Wikipedia:Vandalism,

Vandalism is any addition, removal, or change of content made in a deliberate attempt to compromise the integrity of Wikipedia.

Since my edit was not an "attempt to compromise the integrity of Wikipedia," I assume that it was a mistake, and I'd like you to take any steps to prevent that from happening.

I would also like to advise you to make a few changes to the message you leave:

  • Use the standard ==Heading== rather than ===Subheading=== when replying -- you are not replying to the last message on my talk page and it messes up my table of contents.
  • Leave have a link to where I should report false edits or malfunctions such as this one, especially if you are using beta scripts such as Twinkle.
  • Remove the welcome message. I already have been welcomed three years ago.

Thanks

Warning Templates

Only use the {{subst:uw-vandalism3|NameOfPageVandalized}}, or any equivalent template after another warning has been posted. Instead of using the aforementioned template you can use the {{subst:uw-vandalism4im|NameOfPageVandalized}} if the vandalism is serious enough on the first vandalization. Please, don't take this personally, I had a problem with not knowing which warning template to use until an admin came along and told me. Thanks,  ~Steptrip 23:08, 20 March 2007 (UTC)

Hi to you, too

'Ello. Not much -- I just got two awesome records for $2.50. I made three userboxes to celebrate. :D

abc This user may be a teenager, but he or she loves vinyl records.



abc This user loves vinyl records.



abc This user likes vinyl records more than CDs or any other form of music.



The records are awesome ... one by The Who and one by The Police. Muahahaa. --Theunicyclegirl 21:34, 21 March 2007 (UTC)

I know, there's an awesome music store around here that sells used records for like nothing. Mine were in the $1 bin and the $3 bin, but were 40% off because they were used. Plus tax. They're both sort of classic rock. The Police have some reggae influences though. --Theunicyclegirl 21:38, 21 March 2007 (UTC)
Technically they're punk rock, but they were punk rock of their time. Now they sound more like classic rock compared to today's punk. I still love them, though. -- Theunicyclegirl 21:40, 21 March 2007 (UTC)
Yeah, it is. But not all their stuff is that cheap. New CDs are $16.50. Still, the records are nice and cheap because not many people buy them. Except for me. I wish current artists would release their music on vinyl... --Theunicyclegirl 21:41, 21 March 2007 (UTC)

Ha. Nice. To go new page patrolling, click here. Try to find things that sound like they might meet deletion criteria. To make it easier, go to User:Lupin/anti-vandal_tool (I think that's the right link...) and add it to your monobook. --Theunicyclegirl 21:47, 21 March 2007 (UTC)

Re: Question on MOTD

Can anyone close a nomination, even if he or she voted on the motto? I moved three nominations into the awaiting list, and I'd like to close a couple, just to get a feel of how to do it. Thanks in advance. --Cremepuff222 (talk, review me!) 22:37, 21 March 2007 (UTC)

Oh I see now, users involved in the discussion can't close it. Could you still show me how? --Cremepuff222 (talk, review me!) 22:38, 21 March 2007 (UTC)
I appreciate your willingness to help. To answer your first question, I'll start by saying that it's more of a guideline that users involved in the discussion not also close it. The phrasing in the procedure is to prevent someone from going against consensus to close a nomination (e.g. if only one person supported the motto, we wouldn't want them to close it). By having a third person close nominations, the closing is much more likely to be neutral. However, as in my recent mass closing, I felt it necessary to clear out the increasingly larger nominations page, which included many that I had voted for. The closing was purely out of need, and I tried to go with consensus on each nomination, even if it was against my vote. If I was in doubt, or might have caused some controversy, I reopened it. So, if you're just getting a feel for the process, it's probably best that you pick ones you're not involved with.
Here is an example from Wikipedia:Featured picture candidates of a nomination closed by the nominator. You can see their reason at the bottom of the page states that it was a clear consensus of support. That's about how motto nominations should be closed.
To close a nomination, you basically follow the closing procedure on the nominations page. Here I have summarized:
  1. Pick from "Awaiting decision".
  2. Determine consensus, if any.
  3. See this discussion for when to approve, reject, or reopen.
    From my experience:
    Nominations may only be approved if consensus favors support of the motto.
    Nominations may be reopened only once and only if: they have not received enough votes to gain supporting consensus, but promise to if given a second chance.
    All other nominations should be rejected, including those that have not reached consensus.
    Try to keep the closing as uncontroversial as possible. If in doubt, reopen (or don't close it at all!).
  4. Either approve, reject, or reopen.
  5. If approved or rejected, archive entire nomination.
  6. If approved, add approved page.
  7. If rejected, only archive.
  8. If reopened, copy full discussion (including edits? it's probably best to keep them together) to "In review".
Hopefully that helps. --Tewy 00:25, 22 March 2007 (UTC)
I already have another question... :). The last motto on the awaiting list has three support votes (one from me). Is this enough to go ahead and say that it can be used? Or should it be re-opened? --Cremepuff222 (talk, review me!) 01:07, 22 March 2007 (UTC)
I assume you meant: Wikipedia:Motto of the day/Nominations#If this is your limit, you can't exceed it; If you exceed it, it's not your limit. ...And it looks like Steptrip has already reopened it. Sorry for not responding in time. In any case, I suppose it would have had enough support to approve it, considering how many votes most nominations get, but reopening it was safe, especially considering the comment made by Steptrip about not getting it. I'm quickly developing a policy of "if in doubt, reopen", and this goes along those lines. --Tewy 01:44, 22 March 2007 (UTC)

Your editor review

Not a problem at all reviewing you and you do great work. My concern with your edits toWikipedia:Motto of the day is that the motto's are displayed on userpages, its not really helping the encyclopedia, in an Rfa, high(ish) number of edits to this project could lead to opposes - i.e. wastes too much time on userspace than mainspace.

RE:...!

OH MY GOD!! If any of Xiner's sysop duties have been stressing him or her out, Xiner should leave a request for de-sysoppment on meta, for the good of the community.  ~Steptrip 00:29, 1 April 2007 (UTC)

Also fooled

Why does it scare you? They won't actually do it. Think about it. --Theunicyclegirl (talk, review me!) 00:35, 1 April 2007 (UTC)

Ehm, what link? --Theunicyclegirl (talk, review me!) 00:38, 1 April 2007 (UTC)

Eh, nevermind. I'm back until I collapse of sheer exhaustion. ;) Ah, Wikidiction at its finest. –Theunicyclegirl (talk, review me!) 03:17, 1 April 2007 (UTC)

Xiner's IP

If Xiner lives then the IP geolocation test has confirmed that his IP is: 151.202.74.135. Please tell me if it is wrong, and if it is, please tell me what it is.  ~Steptrip 02:17, 1 April 2007 (UTC)

I just saw a comment on Xiner's talk saying that you "should go back to your dolphins" from that IP, so I just want to make sure it wasn't one of his pranks.  ~Steptrip 02:27, 1 April 2007 (UTC)
On a completely different note, please view this important video announcement from Jimbo Wales.  ~Steptrip 02:37, 1 April 2007 (UTC)

Hey, Question: Can Table be made with HTML? Is there something I have to do to use HTML on wikipedia? Or Must I use the wikimarkup?Redian(Talk, My UserPage) 22:56, 29 March 2007 (UTC)
I think I did you one better for the second assignment, three reverts of unnecessary edits:
  1. Bengal Tiger
  2. Zoo
  3. Smoking (dismabiguation)

Hey, what is my tool box and where is it found? While I'm at it, next time I ask you a question, should I change the topic of this particular discussion on your talk page to something more suitable to what it contains?Redian(Talk) 23:04, 30 March 2007 (UTC)

I hope the heading change isn't to intrusive, but I figure it describes and will describe the bulk of my posts to you. On another note, I'm very very happy with all the info you're giving me I'm finding it quite useful. I'm eagerly awaiting the next assignment, also, do you still want me to give you a diff for the sandbox, or was what I dropped you already fine? Redian (Talk) 04:03, 3 April 2007 (UTC)
