Axl & Steven Rivalry

Can you please visit the Axl Rose discussion section and read my reply please, thanks.

Done.DanielEng 15:50, 20 June 2007 (UTC)
thanks for abolishing what i wrote. it may have been shittily layed-out but its an important reference. restore! -- 12:23, 8 August 2007 (UTC)
Nope. Copyvio word for word dialogue from a film isn't "an important reference." Nor is every single trivial reference to someone's name in mass media. DanielEng 14:13, 8 August 2007 (UTC)

Kids Incorporated

I took a look at the Kids Incorporated article last year and decided against trying to fix it. I figured it was hopeless and I didn't feel like fighting with the kids that want to add every single piece of info will-nilly into the article. I went back to look at again today, and I see that it's really gotten a lot better, and you deserve a lot of the credit for that. You also seem to have taken some real flak for it on the talk page, but really pushed hard and hung in there. So, consider this a very belated 'thank you for all your hard work' --adavidw 00:27, 2 February 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for the kind words. The KI page seems to constantly be a battle, so it's really nice to get this support. Thanks very much! DanielEng 02:49, 4 February 2007 (UTC)
I dropped by to thank you for the work on the Kids Incorporated article too. I had ended up there while doing research on another topic and saw your angel so I thought I'd thank you for the work you did there. --DizFreak talk Contributions 18:53, 18 March 2007 (UTC)
Thank you very much! I really appreciate the support. :) DanielEng 00:50, 21 March 2007 (UTC)

Please sign your talk page posts with ~~~~

Hello. In case you didn't know, when you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion, you should sign your posts by typing four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment. You may also click on the signature button Button sig2.png located above the edit window. This will automatically insert a signature with your name and the time you posted the comment. This information is useful because other editors will be able to tell who said what, and when. Thank you!

This is very important when posting user behavior warnings like you did at User talk: Stand up and take action. Will (Talk - contribs) 04:51, 25 February 2007 (UTC)

Hey Will, thank you for the message you left for me. I do always sign my posts on Talk Pages, etc., but I wasn't quite certain of the protocol when leaving warnings. I'd seen other warnings posted without signatures, and I wasn't sure if they were supposed to be anon, like Wikiquette Alerts. Thanks for clearing that up--I've recently joined the Counter-Vandalism Unit efforts, and I'd like to help instead of hinder, and I appreciate the helpful advice. Best, DanielEng 07:26, 25 February 2007 (UTC)


Are you well aware that becuase of creeps like A----- C-----, a third year law student at the University of -----, who run a message board that not only allows but condones racist and misogynistic comments, people's careers and lives are potentially damaged? C-----'s website xoxohth has come under fire because of his refusal to remove defamatory comments about other people.

This is well known and has been in the media lately. C----- himself is under a lot of heat because he doesn't seem to give a damn that his actions have serious repercussions. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs).

I did not revert your edit based on my personal opinion of the content (for what it's worth, I have no tolerance for any sort of misogyny, racism or homophobia). It was reverted because it was not appropriate for the article.
Information on Wikipedia must conform to the policy of neutrality, as per the guidelines listed at WP:NPOV. Everything must also be cited with reliable sources, as per WP:CITE, and must not amount to personal attacks against others. This is especially important when you are discussing living people. Even if you're telling the truth (and we assume all editors are), the truth has to be verifiable to those outside the immediate situation. Also, this is an encyclopedia, not a place for personal commentary.
You are welcome to add any information you wish to Wiki, and to this article. However, if you wish to discuss the controversy, you must have reliable sources and write in a format that is compatible with the format we have here. DanielEng 06:08, 15 March 2007 (UTC)


This user: has been vandalizing the Saw IV and the Saw (film) articles. I have noticed on his discussion page that he has had several warnings, and you've issued a final warning. I was wondering what can be done to stop this person vandalizing the articles in the future. Thanks Movie Junkie 07:50, 22 March 2007 (UTC)

Hi there, thanks for your message. There's been no activity from this IP since I posted my warning, but if the vandal does reappear, the next step would be to ask an administrator to issue a block at this link: [1] The user has been warned several times, so a block would probably be justified at this point. In the meantime, I'll put these two pages on my watchlist, so if anything turns up it can be reverted quickly. Best, --DanielEng 08:49, 22 March 2007 (UTC)
Thanks, I too have them in my watchlist. I can't see why people vandalise such articles, what are they gaining from it? :| Movie Junkie 16:17, 22 March 2007 (UTC)
It does seem kind of pointless to vandalize, especially someplace like Wiki where the changes are noticed immediately and the changed material can be recovered and replaced in a matter of seconds. IMHO there are just a lot of bored kids out there with way too much time on their hands...anyway, I'm keeping an eye on those articles for you, so hopefully with many people looking out for them, they will be fine. Best, --DanielEng 04:37, 23 March 2007 (UTC)

Hi - If you get a chance, could you please take a look at the latest edits to the page? The chap who made them, "Absolutpiracy", has a history of subtle vandalism.Vizjim 06:15, 27 June 2007 (UTC)

Hi, thanks for your message. I'm just jumping on and off Wiki tonight, but you have my word I'll have a good look at the article as soon as I can, probably sometime tomorrow. I skimmed the diffs just now and I see what you mean about that particular users' edits being problematic, so I'll do my best to look into it. Best, DanielEng 03:44, 29 June 2007 (UTC)

Steven Adler

Ok, Adler is of German ancestry. Even his last name is a typical German last name. Therefore, Steven Adler should be listed under American - Germans.

Norum 05:09, 7 July 2007 (UTC)

Just because he happens to have a surname that is typically German doesn't mean he's German or German-American. You can't just deduce it from the name itself without any other information. Especially since he got the name from his stepfather. Unless you have an actual verifiable source that can prove this, it's unsourced and does not belong there. I did some research myself, and the only two things I could find were that Adler is Jewish (here, an interview with Adler's brother, who mentions their mother is Jewish [2]) and has some Icelandic heritage. (here, about halfway down the page: Steven: My grandfather is from Iceland actually! [3])DanielEng 07:59, 7 July 2007 (UTC)

Guns N' Roses

Hi Daniel. I have noticed that you have been contributing to Guns N' Roses-related articles. A Guns N' Roses WikiProject is in proposal at the moment, and if you would be interested in becoming a participant in the project, then please add your name to the list here. Also, if you have seen any other possibly interested users, would you notify them about the proposal, as well? We'd like to get this project up and running as soon as possible. Kind regards, –sebi 22:37, 3 August 2007 (UTC)

Hey Sebi, thanks for the heads up on this. It's definitely a project with which I'd be interested in helping out. I've added my name to the list. Best, DanielEng 03:59, 4 August 2007 (UTC)

Deletion guideline

Sorry but you'll have to find someone else to work this out, precisely because I've dealt with SqueakBox before and I know full well he will not listen to a word I say. In any case, I'm not sure why you're seeking admin assistance for this: why not simply remind him on his talk page that such things should not be done without seeking consensus on the talk page? Cheers, Pascal.Tesson 04:07, 21 August 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for responding so quickly. I was reluctant to leave a message for Squeakbox for the same reason as you: based on my past dealing with him, I figured he'd ignore anything I said. I was just seeking some input from an admin to see if there was anything that needed to be done about it other than rv and moving on (is disrupting a policy page different from disrupting a regular page, or is he getting out of control?). For now I'll just keep watching the page. Thanks again, DanielEng 04:12, 21 August 2007 (UTC)
Well, I hate to let you down but really, anything coming from me will be perceived as an attack by SqueakBox. This is not to say he was right to do this. Not only is he wrong to unilaterally edit guidelines in this way, he also knows full well that he should not. But as I was saying, my telling him will, at best, serve no purpose. Cheers, Pascal.Tesson 04:15, 21 August 2007 (UTC)
I understand completely; talks on Wiki can get really nasty and I wouldn't want to start a battle or pull anyone else into one. I will leave him a message so there's a (cyber) paper trail, and leave it at that. He does seem like a user who has been around Wiki long enough to know better.
