Re:Admin Coaching

I am currently setting up the curriculum for you, so it should be ready very soon, just a little more patience. Dreamy § 22:07, 10 January 2008 (UTC)

Liverpool fan?

Are you a Liverpool fan by the way? just from looking at a few articles you edited and the Mascherano picture? If so WP:LFC might be of interest to you. John Hayestalk 22:37, 10 January 2008 (UTC)

Rudget!

Broom icon.svg
Dear F9T, my sincere thanks for your support in my second request for adminship, which ended with 113 supports, 11 opposes, and 4 neutral. I would especially like to thank my admin coach and nominator, Rlevse and Ryan Postlethwaite who in addition to Ioeth all inspired me to run for a second candidacy. I would also like to make a special mention to Phoenix-wiki, Dihyrdogen Monoxide and OhanaUnited who all offered to do co-nominations, but I unfortunately had to decline. I had all these funny ideas that it would fail again, and I was prepared for the worst, but at least it showed that the community really does have something other places don't. Who would have though Gmail would have been so effective? 32 emails in one week! (Even if it does classify some as junk :P) I'm glad that I've been appointed after a nail biting and some might call, decision changing RFA, but if you ever need anything, just get in touch. The very best of luck for 2008 and beyond, Rudget. 16:13, 15 January 2008 (UTC)

Hello

When I go to my talk, if someone else leaves me a message, they won't be able to go on my user page, do you know why? Regards

Rianon Burnet 21:53, 15 January 2008 (UTC)

Ok thank you.... I really appreciat everything you've done for me. I just want to make sure you know that... I was wondering if you can, only if you have time, make my page a more Sophisticated look. Again only if you have time...... Have a wonderful day!

Rianon Burnet 15:09, 16 January 2008 (UTC)

Honestly, Yours, I like how you re-did yours. How it says if your online or not. Everything really. I also like your talk page. On my page I don't like how there is so much.

Rianon Burnet 21:04, 16 January 2008 (UTC)

Ok, Thank you.......

Rianon Burnet 13:38, 21 January 2008 (UTC)

My RfA

My request for adminship was successful at 64/1/2! Many thanks for your participation and I will endeavor to meet your expectations. Cheers, Sephiroth BCR (Converse) 09:17, 16 January 2008 (UTC)

EFD

A gentle suggestion to calm down on EFD. The last time someone went nom/vote happy on EFD, it was deleted and they're name is now listed on the prohibited users list of the recreation. The rules state no more than one nom per week. You're at four right now. LaraLove 20:00, 16 January 2008 (UTC)

Agreed on this one. While I do love your participation, we can't let it get out of hand. Thanks for being understanding. GlassCobra 20:11, 16 January 2008 (UTC)
No banning will be happening, don't worry. :) GlassCobra 20:32, 16 January 2008 (UTC)
It's pretty horrible since I was the one that got banned. But I should say that I didn't really make it "an attack page with no neutral revision to revert it to", and the user who originally had the EFD was going to nominate it for Speedy anyway. I apologize if I'm being uncivil here. BoL 00:27, 17 January 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, they won't let me pull the guillotine out until the second offense. Pity really, I ever so enjoy using it. Trusilver (talk) 02:09, 17 January 2008 (UTC)

Archive box

I am attempting to make a new archive box, in which there is no width parameter, and one of the few pages still using the width parameter is one of your's. Is there any way possible to remove the width parameter from this box? It would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, MrKIA11 (talk) 20:05, 16 January 2008 (UTC)

Having the blank parameters inadvertently changed it. If you don't mind what I did, then thanks for your cooperation. MrKIA11 (talk) 20:26, 16 January 2008 (UTC)

I have the mop but can you search the RFA meeting shown to find the bucket?
<font=3> Thanks for your support, my request for adminship passed 60/0/0 yesterday!

I want to thank Mrs.EasterBunny and Royalbroil for nominating me, those who updated the RfA tally, and everyone for their support and many kind words. To paraphrase a president ... I wish my mum and dad could see the comments made. My dad would be so proud to see the comments ... and my mum would have believed them". I will do my best to use the new tools carefully and responsibly (and you may be surprised to find that I have not deleted all of the pages by accident..... yet).

RfA Coaching

Greetings, I just noticed that you had a request for Admin Coaching on the Admin Coaching Page. I have removed the request because several people have offered to coach you, and you've indicated on at least one of their talk pages that you are not interested. If you changed your mind, please see the general guidelines for what most people are looking for in an admin here or my guidelines. If you don't know what your edit history looks like, please check out Kate's Tool. I encourage you to come back to the coaching page when you get closer to being qualified for adminship. —Preceding comment was added at 06:21, 16 February 2008 (UTC)
