Hello, my name is Danny Sepley. Please post messages regarding inquires of my actions on Wikipedia, if you consider them questionable. I openly request you not to spam me. By the way, does the Three-revert rule apply to my own page here, including the talk? Recently it has been vandalized by one of my more obnoxious friends (Arivan Thilleikumaran) who frequently added untrue things to my page. This blatant vandalism should stop (I have formally told him to discontinue his vandalizing) and I may appeal for a block or semi-protection if this continues. Danny sepley 00:57, 5 May 2007 (UTC)

I have appealed for semi-protection; within five minutes it was granted. Thank you, Wikipedia! Danny sepley 23:44, 5 May 2007 (UTC)

By the way, this page is not semi-protected....feel free to post for me here. Danny sepley 01:16, 7 May 2007 (UTC)

What's going on? I'm not sure why I've been blocked for five years! What happened? I've been logged in for almost all the time since I made my account?

That's weird, today I can edit Wikipedia again. Hallelujah! Danny sepley 00:51, 30 May 2007 (UTC)

Remember, you were not blocked, the IP that you happened to be using that day was blocked. If you are at a different location, that could explain it. --After Midnight 0001 03:56, 30 May 2007 (UTC)
Hold it; but why was I blocked when I was logged in? So the IP address I was under cannot edit without me logging in? Danny sepley 21:46, 30 May 2007 (UTC)
Correct, the IP address has been blocked, you have not. In the box above click on the words "block log" next to your name and thye IP address to see this. Please also see Wikipedia:No open proxies for more details. --After Midnight 0001 04:09, 31 May 2007 (UTC)
Oh, I see--thanks, After Midnight. Danny sepley 23:49, 31 May 2007 (UTC)

What's Next

OK, now that we have the block problem worked out, let's get you up to some good editing. Here is a welcoming template which should give you lost of tips regarding how to get started. Pick a topic, do some research and get to work! (Note: this is meant as encouragement, not an order). --After Midnight 0001 23:31, 1 June 2007 (UTC)

Got it. Danny sepley 06:45, 17 June 2007 (UTC)

Talk pages


Please read the talk page guidelines found at WP:TALK - formatting your comments similar to other editors makes the talk pages easier to read and more useufl. Most notably, comments are in chronological order, with the most recent comments being placed at the bottom. WLU 20:12, 19 July 2007 (UTC)

Sorry about that. Didn't know there were precise talk guidelines...Danny Sepley 22:07, 19 July 2007 (UTC)

That's what learnin's for. Everyone makes the mistake at least once, if not several times. The page is really helpful for making talk pages more readable. Such as indenting comments to separate them, which I just did. Read the page! Formatting your comments like those of other wikipedians also means you get taken more seriously and it's just generally a good practice. If you're in for the long haul as an editor, the more policies you become familiar with, easier it is to contribute. Just my opinion, so feel free to ignore it. WLU 16:34, 20 July 2007 (UTC)

I'm a noob, or whatever you call it here on Wikipedia. Thanks for the info, though. Danny Sepley 19:18, 20 July 2007 (UTC)

Most welcome. You might be interested in WP:ADOPT. WLU 20:44, 20 July 2007 (UTC)

Re: Bret Harte Middle School (San Jose, California)

Tapeontheshoe hasn't made any edits since I warned him or her. Blocks are preventative, not punitive, so there's no problem as long as he or she does not vandalize again. There has been no vandalism to the page since the 12th, so there doesn't seem to be much of an issue. You may watchlist the page if you wish to keep an eye on edits to it. If you have any other concerns, please feel welcome to leave me another message. --Slowking Man 22:13, 31 July 2007 (UTC)

(Since it would otherwise seem redundant to leave another message on Slowking Man's page, I will do it here) Thank you very much, Slowking Man; I was not aware of the warning you issued to Tapeontheshoe. Thanks very much. Danny Sepley 22:59, 31 July 2007 (UTC)

who is tapeontheshoe, kalvin? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Aznfatnerd (talkcontribs) 23:09, 3 October 2007 (UTC)

Bret Harte Middle School

The Bret Harte Middle School page really needs cleanup. It reminds me of of one of those really bad summaries of schools. You of all people should be able to give some information on the clubs, the academics so on and so forth.Wikijjc 14:58, 8 September 2007 (UTC)

Very true, perhaps you should balance out the article a little bit. I will always be slightly biased so why don't you balance it out. Expanding the sections? I think the Bret Harte page needs sections in the first place. Not to be competitive, but I feel that remark was purely based out of your competitiveness with Castillero. I agree the sections should be expanded but once an article has gotten past the stage most stubs are in the expansion of an article is a slow process and one that takes much more time and thought than adding new sections. Besides, I didn't write the previous comment out of competitiveness but out of an open mind. It is well known that Bret Harte's academics are better than Castillero's but Castillero's arts are far superior to Bret Harte's Wikijjc 02:13, 13 September 2007 (UTC)

Why are you guys so competitive? the only big difference between castillero and bret harte is that bret harte doesn't have to wear uniforms. Both of their tennis courts are really bad. and yes, the ones on the left are ok, but those are the city courts, not the castillero ones. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Aznfatnerd (talkcontribs) 23:13, 3 October 2007 (UTC)

I agree. Currently, Legoktm, Danny and I, are trying to edit the page, and add more useful, apporpriate content. I will admit, that the summary is rather ~unsteady~, but we are working on this problem, please give us an oppurtunity to address this problem. Thanks.

Your recent edits

Hi there. 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. On many keyboards, the tilde is entered by holding the Shift key, and pressing the key with the tilde pictured. 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! --SineBot 19:29, 4 November 2007 (UTC)


I saw your comments on the Bret Harte Middle School (San Jose, California) talk page and now if you search BHMS it will show

BHMS is a four letter acronym that can stand for
Disambiguation notice This disambiguation page lists articles associated with the same title. If an internal link led you here, you may wish to change the link to point directly to the intended article.

Also, if you have a free picture of BHMS from the front, could you upload it to the Wikimedia Commons.
Right now we are using the pic of off the BHMS website, Image:Bh school.jpg, so it is not free, meaning it cannot be used anywhere else except the BHMS page,

Thanks LegoKontribsTalkM 03:36, 29 February 2008 (UTC)

Why hello there, [name omitted]. Hmm, a few questions. First of all, I don't think you're still in 7th grade eh? Well, anyways, go on my page and take the ubx that Legoktm made, with the one saying "This user is friends with LunaRain." Anyways, about BHMS SJ. I agree with Legoktm, make sure that you, if you do happen to find a picture, for our school, *oops* anyways, make sure you license it with our help. Always here if you need the back up. LunaRain~ 05:20, 1 March 2008 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by LunaRain (talkcontribs)

I added a free picture of BHMS from the sky taken by the news studio (so it is free) and it looks like this

Bret Harte From the Air.JPG

so we do not need a free picture anymore. ~ LegoKontribsTalkM 04:12, 5 March 2008 (UTC)

Cough, Cough, not really but he shouldnt mind as it is being used for educational purposes ~ LegoKontribsTalkM 00:52, 11 March 2008 (UTC)

Your Name

BTW: if you click here, then it will show you to an old revision of a page, and will display the text inside [name omitted] and your email address, and kalvinspammer's email address. And you cannot change the revision histories ~ LegoKontribsTalkM 02:08, 4 March 2008 (UTC)


I added the ubx {{User:Legoktm/UBX/FriendLegoktm}} which looks like this

Face-smile.svg This user is friends with Legoktm.

for you. I hope you like it. ~ LegoKontribsTalkM 04:06, 5 March 2008 (UTC)
