Sheriff Callie's Wild West[edit]

How in the world is what I posted on the Sheriff Callie's Wild West page as far as the cancellation "not definitive proof"? The item that I posted is from Holly Huckins, who is the show's creator. How much more definitive is necessary? ProfessorTofty (talk) 02:24, 12 March 2017 (UTC)

Like I wrote in the edit summary of the revert - which, in hindsight, I should have left alone for a bit - it's not definitive proof because she doesn't explicitly mention that the series isn't returning. She wrote that tweet at the end of the season and only said it was "wrapping [up]" production without specifying whether it was just for the season or the entire series itself. Find me another source, then I'll believe it.Davejohnsan (talk) 20:18, 12 March 2017 (UTC)

Simpsons IP Hopping[edit]

Hi. So I'm not sure if you even remember this (as I haven't seen you edit any Simpsons-related articles recently), but I've been recently doing some investigation into the "Futon Critic is ahead of its time" guy, and in my investigation your name has popped up in the reverts of this person quite a bit. I've found some pretty overwhelming vandalism evidence here (over 165+ separate vandalism edits from different IP ranges, and I haven't even finished yet), and all these IP ranges use very similar phrases and mannerisms in their editing, leading me to believe this is either a really obsessive sockpuppet or some vandal conspiracy here to attack the Simpsons-related pages. Once I finish with my investigation (should be a week at the most), I'm going to report this to WP:ANI and try to at least get these pages semi-protected for a long, long time (as about 90% of the IP edits done on these pages are from this same person/group) so this finally stops. I feel like this guy has slipped under the cracks for far too long now. But, to my point, since you seem to be at least somewhat aware of this guy's editing patterns, I was wondering if you would be interested in either contributing and/or giving your input when I make the report. Here's a link to what I've done so far. Thanks and let me know! Katniss May the odds be ever in your favor 22:28, 12 March 2017 (UTC)

Please, Please, PLEASE don't block my range! I will stop for real this time. I only happen to be a long-time Simpsons fan and I admit I'm afraid of future predictions when it comes to TV. If you give me one last chance I'll never remove another source ever again, I will accept Futon Critic as the trustworthy source, and simply avoid reading the plot if I'm afraid to know what happels. I will stay off the whole list of episodes. And I absolutely positively undeniably mean it this time. Honest to God. Pinky swear. Absolute Native American's honor. -- 2602:306:37EB:47E0:145A:9A21:E3FD:E5C5 (talk) 01:00, 13 March 2017 (UTC)
First of all, I'm not an admin so I can't "block" your range. Several other editors have expressed concerns about this editing pattern of yours so I've reported it to WP:ANI to let the administrators decide. If this was a short-term thing, I may have taken your word but this has gone on for three years now. You've been blocked twice on your 2602 range and plus once in your 205 range. You clearly know this not acceptable yet you continue doing it. Even if this was simply because you didn't want future information ruined for you, realize that you are affecting anyone in the world who views the encyclopedia based on your personal preference not to have information spoiled. If you're truly sorry and want another chance, I very much welcome and would like for you to give your input on the discussion here. Despite that I'm reporting you, I honestly have nothing against you or your IPs and don't wish any ill-will against you. Since you've obviously been looking through my contributions (as you knew to come here), I'm simply doing what I'm doing to protect the article and keep it accurate. You deleting and removing sources and information doesn't keep it accurate. I'm going to leave it up to the people at WP:ANI to decide what to do next, but if someday you do want to be a constructive editor and read more into the Wikipedia policies, I'd be glad to work with you and will have no grudges whatsoever. I simply want what is best for the Wikipedia community and have no anger or hatred for you at all. Thank you and may the odds be ever in your favor. Katniss 02:36, 13 March 2017 (UTC)

I'm sorry. I just got back home today after attending the funeral of a close family member, and I've barely had time to catch up with IRL obligations. As soon as I can gather myself, I'll try to respond, but I'm just going to say right now I think you have a firm handle on this matter and I don't see how much there is for me to contribute, especially with the length of time that's passed since I've dealt with this particular editor. Davejohnsan (talk) 00:37, 14 March 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for the reply, totally understandable. So sorry to hear about your relative! Katniss May the odds be ever in your favor 14:14, 14 March 2017 (UTC)
