Hello and Welcome to the Wikipedia! Can I invite you to the Teahouse? TheOriginalSoni (talk) 12:00, 18 January 2013 (UTC)

Yes please! Thanks! CURTAINTOAD! TALK! 07:59, 19 January 2013 (UTC)
Hey Curtain, how old are you? TheOriginalSoni (talk) 14:26, 18 January 2013 (UTC)
I'm sorry, but I can't tell you, even on email; it's private. :( CURTAINTOAD! TALK! 07:59, 19 January 2013 (UTC)
That's confidential... Face-wink.svg Basket Feudalist 14:41, 18 January 2013 (UTC)
It's not that number... :/ CURTAINTOAD! TALK! 08:28, 19 January 2013 (UTC)
Then what is it? TheOriginalSoni (talk) 08:29, 19 January 2013 (UTC)
I'm sorry, but I can't tell you; it's very private. :/ CURTAINTOAD! TALK! 08:41, 19 January 2013 (UTC)
I see. Thanks! TheOriginalSoni (talk) 14:43, 18 January 2013 (UTC)


I have undone the font on this talk page. I politely mentioned yesterday that it should be changed, and I'd listen to valid counter-arguments why it should be kept, but you ignored my request. Can I point out, as others have done, that dismissing thought out replies with little more than "thanks" can be considered rude or offensive to other people, particularly when they really are trying to help. I think going to the Teahouse, as mentioned above, is a good idea. --Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 12:15, 18 January 2013 (UTC)

  • Also, sorry to pick on you again, but I noticed you reverted changes to Ellen Frances and tagged them as vandalism. You need to be careful about identifying things as vandalism; in this case the other editor removed information that wasn't verifiable due to a lack of a citation of the people listed to a reliable source. It was a good faith attempt to improve the encyclopedia by removing unverifiable content, and hence not vandalism. Cheers. Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 12:26, 18 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Re Ellen Frances the changes you "undid" were actually putting vandalism back on the site that was taken off. If you check the source link you see that "mini driver" and "bootsy collins" were never at any art event she held. the editor who undid your change REMOVED the VANDALISM. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Robo134 (talkcontribs) 13:14, 18 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Robo134, neither your edits or Curtaintoad's were vandalism, which is a deliberate attempt to damage content on Wikipedia. You both thought you were doing something right, so what you've actually got is a content dispute. I've compromised by tagging the relevant area of the article with {{citation needed}}, which means I'd like a source for the names listed to be provided, instead of removing them outright. --Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 14:01, 18 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Ironicly I don't think theere were any arguments of of way or another-!!! Basket Feudalist 12:44, 18 January 2013 (UTC)
Oh, sorry about the things I have done wrong, but thanks. By the way, I have added the font back on this talk page; I have a very good reason why, but hopefully this makes sense, and is not rude. User talk pages like User talk:Pratyya Ghosh and User talk:Mediran get to have their font, so why shouldn't I get a font? Thanks, CURTAINTOAD! TALK! 08:08, 19 January 2013 (UTC)
If you insist on having a font, can you please make it something that people can read? I'm 22, and I struggle to read it; imagine how someone in their 50s or 60s will feel when they read your page. --Rschen7754 08:10, 19 January 2013 (UTC)
But I think this is a good font. Can I please stay with the one I have? CURTAINTOAD! TALK! 08:14, 19 January 2013 (UTC)
We can't make you change the font, but people will get very annoyed with you very quickly. Not a good call if you ever want to be an admin. --Rschen7754 08:17, 19 January 2013 (UTC)
You can (Nobody can actually force you to change it) but it would be considered polite if you could change it. Having a font that would be great and easy to understand will be best for everyone! TheOriginalSoni (talk) 08:18, 19 January 2013 (UTC)
Thanks! CURTAINTOAD! TALK! 08:21, 19 January 2013 (UTC)
Are you changing it? TheOriginalSoni (talk) 08:25, 19 January 2013 (UTC)
I like stick with the current one! Thanks! CURTAINTOAD! TALK! 08:26, 19 January 2013 (UTC)
You know thats rude, right? TheOriginalSoni (talk) 08:28, 19 January 2013 (UTC)
Oh, sorry about that, I may make a few mistakes, though. :/ CURTAINTOAD! TALK! 08:32, 19 January 2013 (UTC)

deleted page

Page was tagged page has served no purpose since October, just to hold a '-'. May have been created to suite a copy and paste from another user's talk., and it had never had significant content, so I assumed this was just routine housekeeping. No problem restoring it if you want it back, although given the lack of content it might be simpler for you just to recreate the page Jimfbleak - talk to me? 10:04, 20 January 2013 (UTC)

Okay, thanks. CURTAINTOAD! TALK! 10:06, 20 January 2013 (UTC)
