Request reason:

I am currently "blocked" by someone called Black Kite (who is now unavailable). Black Kite was actually trying to block someone called Bambifan101. I don't know why I'm being blocked unless my URL is somehow similiar. Could someone please 'unblock' me. I haven't edited on here in several months, but I found a page while doing some reseacrch I found a page that needs to be fixed. Thanks (Doctorfun (talk) 18:04, 18 May 2009 (UTC) Cleanup Volunteer)

Decline reason:

Clearing an autoblock

Due to the nature of the block applied we need additional information before we can decide whether to unblock you. It is very likely that you are not personally blocked. If you are prevented from editing, it may be because you are autoblocked or blocked because of your IP address. Without further details there is nothing further we can do to review or lift your block. Please follow these instructions:

  1. If you have a Wikipedia account, please ensure that you are logged in.
    Your account name will be visible in the top right of this page if you are.
    If it isn't, try bypassing your web browser's cache.
  2. Try to edit the Sandbox.
  3. If you are still blocked, copy the {{unblock-ip|...}} code generated for you under the "IP blocked?" section. This is usually hidden within the "What do I do now?" section. If so, just click the "[show]" link to the right hand side to show this text.
  4. Paste the code at the bottom of your user talk page and click save.
If you are not blocked from editing the sandbox then the autoblock on your IP address has already expired and you can resume editing. J.delanoygabsadds 18:19, 18 May 2009 (UTC)

If you want to make any further unblock requests, please read the guide to appealing blocks first, then use the {{unblock}} template again. If you make too many unconvincing or disruptive unblock requests, you may be prevented from editing this page until your block has expired.

I tried the suggestion above and am still blocked the code I found is pasted below. Thanks (Doctorfun (talk) 13:44, 19 May 2009 (UTC))

Unblocking administrator: Please check for active autoblocks on this user after accepting the unblock request.

Hello Doctorfun, you are unfortunately sharing the same network as a particularly tenacious banned wikivandal, however since you are clearly not the vandal in question I have granted you an exemption to the block. See WP:IPBE for the details. Thanks. -- zzuuzz (talk) 21:54, 19 May 2009 (UTC)

Luther B. Bridgers[edit]

Dr. Fun, take a look at the talk page for Luther B. Bridgers. It is a common misconception that he wrote "He Keeps Me Singing" after his wife and three children died in a house fire on March 26, 1911. Truth is, he wrote it in 1909---and the music is based on a secular hit song of 1903, "Melody of Love" by Hans Engelmann. See link for youself---and check out Engelmann's song on Youtube. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:55, 14 June 2014 (UTC)

Looks good - thanks Doctorfun (talk) 03:12, 26 June 2014 (UTC)

Joe Hilley[edit]

Doctor, Wikipedia footnote style says that we leave multiple footnotes separate instead of combining them with a "see also" comment. You might want to read WP:REF. Otherwise, good work on the article. - Realkyhick (Talk to me) 05:10, 26 October 2009 (UTC)

Okay. Thanks for pointing that out. I'll remember it in the future. Doctorfun (talk)

Not a copyright problem. I was only just getting started on the article when you put up the notice. I'm continuing to work on the piece. Please consider removing the notice. Thanks (Doctorfun (talk) 03:17, 4 February 2012 (UTC))
Okay. I have declined its deletion.
Fair enough, I admit I jumped the gun on that one. The patrolling admin (who makes the ultimate decision on whether to speedily delete the article or not) decided not to delete it anyway, so no harm done.
In future, if you're working on an article that isn't complete yet, try placing a tag { { underconstruction } } (without the space in between the brackets) on that article or creating a subpage of your userpage and creating the article there first. How to do so is explained here. Then, once you've completed the article to an acceptable standard, you can create the article properly and copy everything from the subpage to the main article. That way, you're less likely to leave half-finished articles lying around, which other users may mark for deletion. Happy editing! --Yasht101 (talk) 04:43, 4 February 2012 (UTC)

Good idea. Thanks for the help (Doctorfun (talk) 04:45, 4 February 2012 (UTC)}

Always welcome and if u need any kind of help then feel free to ask me. --Yasht101 (talk) 05:05, 4 February 2012 (UTC)
