Harry Potter edits

You sure you know what you're doing? All the moving you're doing is creating a lot of double redirects. I hope you're going to fix them all. Also, you might want to note you entirely removed creatures from the Harry Potter template. By the way, is the Harry Potter WikiProject aware of your actions? You may wish to alert them. GlassCobra 21:04, 17 September 2007 (UTC)

Hi there. I am actually fixing all the redirects I did. You can check some of them by trying these links:
About the removing of the creatures, I did it because of the guide of Notability. You can check a previous version of it to note that all those creatures I merged and redirected into the Beasts article, were Harry Potter articles agreed to be removed. It was the same with the Hogwarts teachers (Umbridge, Moody, Quirrell, etc.) that were merged. The idea is just keeping very few (notable) lists and solo articles. Lord Opeth 21:31, 17 September 2007 (UTC)

Robert Jordan

Say it ain't so! How are we supposed to find out the winner of Tarmon Gai'don now? Sigh. Were you a fan of the books as well? GlassCobra 05:47, 17 September 2007 (UTC)

A friend of mine was, and let me know about his passing. I was familiar with him, but never had read his work. Kind of 'good' though in that it seems all parties were aware of his health and that the 12th of 12 Wheel of Time books has enough to be completed one way or another.

A shooting star landed right here!

Original Barnstar.png

For working very hard, and still finding the time to learn at an impressive rate, you deserve so more than just a little star, dear GlassCobra - but fitting the whole starry sky in this little box is a little difficult, so this will have to do for now! :) Keep it up, my friend! Love, Phaedriel 22:55, 18 September 2007 (UTC)

Thank you very much for the barnstar, Phaedriel! Especially since it's so unique. :) I don't mean to bother you, but do you think that maybe if you have just a few minutes, that you could put a box around my header so that it fits in with the rest of the page? Not like Alison's, but rather that it's its own separate box, but still connected. No hurry at all, of course, just whenever you get a chance! Thank you again for the fantastic barnstar! GlassCobra 00:22, 19 September 2007 (UTC)

Delta Lambda Psi

Tlafond 23:57, 18 September 2007 (UTC)

Hi, thanks so much for offering to help with the page Delta Lambda Psi. I'm sorry for the language used, but am new to the wikipedia thing and I'm not quite understanding the language yet. If you could let me know what needs to be change that would be so amazing. DLP is a new co-ed fraternity at UC Santa Cruz (3 years), and the purpose of my placing it on wikipedia is to network with other fraternities/sororities that have similar interests etc. So please let me know how to change it/what to do. Thanks so much, in advance, for any help you can give.

I'd like to help you with this article; however, I'm a little concerned about your intentions. Wikipedia is not a social networking site by any means; so if your purpose is to hook up with other fraternities and sororites, I'm afraid that's not really acceptable. If you'd like to write a nonbiased encyclopedia article, then, by all means, stay. As noted on your talk page, your article has two main issues: first, it's essentially written like an ad for the article. As I said, the "our"s and "we"s strewn throughout the article, as well as peacock terms like "dedicated" and "strong-willed," it is very clear that someone in the organization wrote the article. Please read up on Wikipedia's neutral point of view policy to improve the article in this area. The other issue with the article is slightly larger: In order to establish notability, our articles here need to have sources and references from neutral, third-party sources, like newspapers and magazines (not blogs). Please read our notability policy, as well as our reliable source guidelines in order to improve the article and save it from deletion. Drop me a line on my talk page if you have any more questions, okay? Good luck! GlassCobra 00:38, 19 September 2007 (UTC)

Giving Children Hope

Hey there - as I mentioned, I'm new. I saw that you liked the Giving Children Hope page and you made changes and now it's gone...what happened? I'm confused. Many other organizations similar to mine, like World RElief or World Vision have pages...Help. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Steverding (talkcontribs) 00:47, 19 September 2007 (UTC)

Hey man, sorry that your page got deleted. It looks like the deleting admin trashed it because it was a copyright infringement of another page, which I seem to remember being a problem. You can go ahead and recreate the article, but write it in your own words this time, okay? And make sure to keep those sources in! Good luck, and drop me a line if you need anything! GlassCobra 00:54, 19 September 2007 (UTC)

Naharin

Hey, thanks for trying to make Wikipedia a better place by helping remove articles that might be unfit for keeping here. However, it looks like you had improperly formatted your entry. When you create a full AfD, remember to follow all the steps outlined at Template:AfD footer, okay? Happy editing! GlassCobra 04:13, 19 September 2007 (UTC)

What if I want to add more reasons to why the article should be deleted?--Moosh88 04:30, 19 September 2007 (UTC)
It's cool if you want to change or expand your reasoning for deletion; just edit the part where you put your initial comments. GlassCobra 04:33, 19 September 2007 (UTC)

GCH

EEEks - I wouldn't have any idea what I infringed upon?? I used language from my website such as my mission, a little history of our organization and such. This wikipedia thing is super confusing as I used references and wrote in my own words our work...I'll try again. Thanks for your help! —Preceding unsigned comment added by Steverding (talkcontribs) 06:05, 19 September 2007 (UTC)

new page

So I put up the Giving Children Hope page again - let me know your thoughts. I'm praying it does not get deleted again...

Thanks for your help! Jenise —Preceding unsigned comment added by Steverding (talkcontribs) 06:32, 19 September 2007 (UTC)

Hmm, to be honest, it really doesn't look all that different. Try re-writing it, okay? I think you just put up the same article. GlassCobra 14:04, 19 September 2007 (UTC)

Attention Needed

Could you please keep an eye out for these pages, as two users are bent on removing all of the scholarly information that has been added. Pages are: Hurrians, Armenia (name), Proto-Armenian language, Armenian language, Graeco-Aryan language. Also, it wouldn't hurt to keep an eye on the Armenia, Mitanni, and Urartu articles.

The two users are User:Ghirlandajo and User:Dbachmann

Thank you.--Moosh88 22:59, 23 September 2007 (UTC)

Re: User:Noway419

Out of curiosity, why was this not an indef ban? The user clearly hasn't been doing anything constructive. GlassCobra 17:51, 25 September 2007 (UTC)

It's a fair question. I didn't feel comfortable blocking the user indefinitely at this time, because there were some good-faith edits to other articles in the contribution history, enough for me to assume, at least for now, that the user, relatively new, has a serious misunderstanding of NPOV and how Wikipedia really should work. I don't think the user came here merely to keep calling Halo 3 "overrated" (that article is going to receive a lot of attention, for better or worse, for the next week or so), based on edits elsewhere, some of which seem in good faith. At the same time, I do agree that the behavior needs to improve quickly. I just didn't see an indefinite block as justifiable at this time. — TKD::Talk 18:10, 25 September 2007 (UTC)
Yeah, that's definitely an okay call. I hadn't looked close enough at his contributions. Thanks for the reply, and happy editing! GlassCobra 19:14, 25 September 2007 (UTC)

Re:Signpost

Hey, was hoping you could help me out. I've tried leaving a few notes on Ral315's talk page, but he doesn't seem to see them. I'm an ex-journalism major (switched to poly sci), but I know a fair bit about news style. I'd like to know how I can get involved in writing for the Signpost. Would you mind dropping me a line back on my talk page when you get a chance? Thanks! GlassCobra 21:29, 26 September 2007 (UTC)

To tell you the truth, my role is only finding bits of information and collating to a central location. The best thing to do is look on the suggestions page, and write an article on it and post it on the next issue page. Thats how most people get their start.

Son Goku (Dragon Ball)

i have never valalize anything on goku page i only been working on Attack Moves. I am not a evil person that likes to damage a artical but i am creative. It might be another person who might of done and it's not me. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Aqua Of Light (talkcontribs)

Unfortunately, adding things like "this guy named steven created goku but he was depressed and now he has some propblems and goes to the mental institution" isn't really considered constructive here. The other content that you added had been removed previously as per community consensus. GlassCobra 19:13, 27 September 2007 (UTC)

Hey, just so you know, you indef blocked this guy, but the note on his talk page said that he's only been blocked temporarily. Dunno if you want to fix it, seeing as he's not coming back, but I thought I'd let you know. Cheers! GlassCobra 21:11, 27 September 2007 (UTC)

Three revert rule

I have noticed that you have made a total of 5 reverts in the last 24 hours to Spells in Harry Potter. This is in violation of the three revert rule, which states that "An editor must not perform more than three reverts, in whole or in part, on a single page within a 24-hour period." If an action really needs reverting, somebody else will probably do it. To avoid a 24 hour block from editing, you should revert (at least) two of your reverts. For more information, you may also like to read Wikipedia:Revert only when necessary. Thanks! •Malinaccier• T/C 22:11, 27 September 2007 (UTC)

Are you honestly quoting policy at me? Come on, man, you know me. Whatever happened to giving established editors the benefit of the doubt? My reverts are exclusively to improve the article. I'm not going to apologize for violating the rule, as I did it in the best interest of the article and the project. I'll revert my edits, but someone else needs to clean up after me. GlassCobra 02:11, 28 September 2007 (UTC)

Hey man, Malinaccier is calling me on violating 3RR, so it looks like I'm out of action to defend the article, at least in the immediate sense. I'll drop by and clean up where I can, but I can't do any more reverting, at least until tomorrow. I counted 5 reverts by me, so I have to re-revert 2. Would you mind cleaning up whatever mess gets put back into the article? Thanks. GlassCobra 02:16, 28 September 2007 (UTC)

I'm not as attentive as you, but I'll do my best. Malinaccier seems to be doing less of an accusation and more of a "watch-out, admins are nit-picky". Therequiembellishere 19:06, 28 September 2007 (UTC)
Eh. I didn't really appreciate him quoting policy at me, as if I had never read it. I wrote a pretty good response on his talk page, basically saying that he shouldn't template the regulars. Whatever. GlassCobra 21:43, 28 September 2007 (UTC)

I didn't mean to offend you, but I wanted to warn you (as Therequiembellishere stated) to help prevent a future block. The reverts you made were for the good of the encyclopedia, so it wasn't like you were in an edit war, but you should still be careful. Sorry if I am still offending you. •Malinaccier• T/C 22:40, 28 September 2007 (UTC)

I highly doubt I'll be banned for acting in the best interest of the project. I may have broken the letter of the law, but I was still upholding it in spirit. My annoyance with you stems merely from you unnecessarily quoting policy at me, a user who has not only read the policy, but warned others in the past about it. GlassCobra 02:53, 29 September 2007 (UTC)
I'll consider your objections in the future, and am truly sorry. Could we let bygones be bygones? •Malinaccier• T/C 22:50, 29 September 2007 (UTC)
Sure. I know you had good intentions. GlassCobra 00:19, 30 September 2007 (UTC)

Finish it!

Make a vote on Hex Deflection on the talk page for Spells in Harry Potter. I wanna get it over with. Thanks! •Malinaccier• T/C 01:40, 30 September 2007 (UTC)

All done. Go for it. GlassCobra 02:24, 30 September 2007 (UTC)

need help

My article on Moeko Matsushita was only just created and is up for deletion. I need help from you to save it from being deleted. Get involved!Kitty53 02:39, 30 September 2007 (UTC)

Okay, I fixed up the article a bit, and left a note on the talk page. On another note, do you really need to create all those redirects? They don't really serve any purpose. Just something to think about. GlassCobra 07:14, 30 September 2007 (UTC)

Who are you kidding

There is a sort of dictatership forming at Wikipeda. If you do not like the content you brand it "vandalism". It's time for Wiki to dump you guys, or users to get a new online service. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 89.100.153.113 (talk) 10:23, 30 September 2007 (UTC)

Okay, listen; the first four of your six edits to the Indiana Jones article pertained to the previous movies, so they were reverted. That's pretty simple. But as far as I can tell, the content from your two other edits are still there. I'm not exactly sure why you're complaining. I'm also not really sure why you're picking on Alientraveller, he didn't personally revert any of your comments. What I can tell you is that if you vandalize any more pages, including user pages, I'll have you blocked. GlassCobra 10:30, 30 September 2007 (UTC)

Wlliam Stanton

Please bear with me. I am still new to this.

I'm taking my time to familiarise myself with the conventions, so I crave your patience.

I have put something up on talk page justifying why I think this page should be included, and I've made alterations to the page to try to achieve a more dispassionate stance.

I'm also seeing if I can find sources in the Radio Times online. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Andyofnewark (talkcontribs) 10:51, 30 September 2007 (UTC)

Sure thing. Your dad is definitely notable, so the article isn't in any immediate danger of being deleted. You're doing a great job so far of taking the bias out of the article, and some more sources will definitely make sure the article is kept. Keep it up, and let me know if you need any help! GlassCobra 11:01, 30 September 2007 (UTC)
Ah, almost forgot: When you write on a talk page, like the help desk or this page, type four tildes (~~~~) after your post; this signs it by putting your name and the date. I think I mentioned that at your entry on the help desk, but you may not have seen it. Happy editing! GlassCobra 11:03, 30 September 2007 (UTC)
Thanks, I'm getting there! Andyofnewark 11:04, 30 September 2007 (UTC)
Great job signing your post, but you don't need to create a new section every time. If you've already posted about a similar topic on a given talk page, you can just keep your comments in the same section. If you look at how I fixed your reply, you can see how inserting a colon before your comment creates an indent, as threaded comments are easier to read. For this comment, I put two indents to signify a progression in the conversation. For more details, check out Wikipedia:Talk page guidelines. Keep up the good work! GlassCobra 11:10, 30 September 2007 (UTC)

Hi!

I stole your talkpage header. Hope it's OK :-P Amit@Talk 15:39, 30 September 2007 (UTC)

And yes I have changed the Username in it. :) Amit@Talk 15:42, 30 September 2007 (UTC)
No you may not! Haha, of course it's okay! I assume you mean Mailer diablo's picture, which I saw up at the top there. As long as you give him credit, it should be okay for you to use it. You might also want to put the {{talkheader}} template up at the top too. Happy editing! GlassCobra 16:55, 30 September 2007 (UTC)
OK I did that too, thanks! Amit@Talk 16:59, 30 September 2007 (UTC)

Okay! Thanks!

Thanks, GlassCobra! That means a lot to me. You know, I'm starting to make new friends at Wikipedia. Thanks for adding stuff to Moeko Matsushita! Thanks for contributing to that article!:)Kitty53 17:27, 30 September 2007 (UTC)(T)

No problem. By the way, you might consider reading up on how to group userboxes, especially the tabling part, so that your user page isn't so messy. Happy editing! GlassCobra 17:30, 30 September 2007 (UTC)

Echo 1

Hey, just thought you might like to know that ECHO 1 has been re-created. As the deleting admin, would you mind having a look and seeing if it's been improved since last time? Thanks. GlassCobra 08:21, 30 September 2007 (UTC)

Yes, it's back - these things tend to just shy of advertising by the same author with a WP:COI no doubt. Any way, I nominated it at AFD to get rid of it that way. If successful, WP:CSD#G4 applies and it can be tagged for speedy deletion. Thanks for keeping WP clean - you can of course comment at the AFD debate. It's a good thing to keep a watch for recurrences - I tend to go through my deletion log every couple of weeks to see what's sprouted back. :-) Carlossuarez46 19:16, 30 September 2007 (UTC)
I'll definitely add my two cents. Thanks and happy editing! GlassCobra 19:40, 30 September 2007 (UTC)

When I initially started making edits, I used Merotoker. One time when I logged out, the computer said my password was invalid when I tried to sign back on. Rather than deal with complications of trying to change my password, I just created a new name. One time when I forgot my current password, I created Merotoker2.

Hey, just wanted to tell you that I've put up some of your many redirects up for discussion at WP:RFD. No offense, of course, but I just think that some of them are kind of unrealistic. Feel free to go over and add your input! GlassCobra (Review) 23:17, 10 October 2007 (UTC)

I do not want the redirects to be deleted.Kitty53 23:22, 10 October 2007 (UTC)
I'm sorry, but you create quite a lot of redirects that we simply don't need. Of course, it's up to the community to decide, but that's how I feel, at least. I apologize if I've caused any offense. GlassCobra (Review) 23:25, 10 October 2007 (UTC)
At least it's better than having everything I created deleted.-_-Kitty53 23:27, 10 October 2007 (UTC)
Well like I said, you're more than welcome to go over to WP:RFD and give your reasoning for keeping them. By the way, when you post on my talk page, you don't have to make a new section every time. If it's about the same topic, you can just tack your comment onto the original one, like I'm doing here. I didn't delete your comment, I simply moved it up to join with your first one. GlassCobra (Review) 23:39, 10 October 2007 (UTC)

Sup!

Hey buddy, haven't heard from you in a bit! I'm really sorry that I missed your RfA, But you know you would have had a guaranteed Support from me :) Anyway, hope all is well, drop me a line back, okay? Or reply here...I'm watching youuu...>_> GlassCobra (Review) 14:14, 9 October 2007 (UTC)

What, we have to talk daily now :p Nothing much has changed...I haven't been as active as I'd have like of late, but that should be done and dusted soon. On a good note, my bot got approved :) Dihydrogen Monoxide (H2O) 06:29, 11 October 2007 (UTC)
Haha, sorry, I couldn't resist. That's cool about your bot, what will it be doing? GlassCobra (Review) 11:44, 11 October 2007 (UTC)

Leave me alone

May I ask why you removed a section on this talk page with an edit summary of "ass"? That doesn't seem to be very productive. GlassCobra (Review) 17:31, 14 October 2007 (UTC)

Leave me alone Maleman19 17:33, 14 October 2007 (UTC)
I've reverted your deletion, and restored the section. GlassCobra (Review) 17:44, 14 October 2007 (UTC)
Good for you. Leave me alone. Maleman19 17:47, 14 October 2007 (UTC)

IRC

Welcome to IRC! Good luck getting the hang of things, and try not to get hooked. ;) GlassCobra (Review) 17:52, 14 October 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for the awesome welcome, GC! It was great chatting with you too! Looking forward to more conversations... Dreadstar 18:53, 14 October 2007 (UTC)

About my redirects

Every redirect you put up for discussion, well, the discussions have been going on for a long time, and it probably takes forever for the discussions to end. It's making the redirects up for discussion not redirect anywhere, and I'm getting sick and tired of waiting for the discussions to end! Please respond on my talk page. Kitty53 22:06, 14 October 2007 (UTC)

At WP:RFD#Closing notes, it says that discussions should remain open for about a week. GlassCobra 22:13, 14 October 2007 (UTC)

Thanks

Thank you for reverting vandalism off my userpage. It was very much appreciated :D AngelOfSadness talk 22:54, 14 October 2007 (UTC)

No problem; just happened to be along at the time. :) Hey, listen, have you ever considered becoming an admin? I'd be happy to nominate you if you wanted. :) I think you'd do a great job. GlassCobra 22:59, 14 October 2007 (UTC)
Cool. I have considered becoming an admin but I'm not going to accept any nominations until I get my article creation edits/AfD discussion edits up. Maybe at Christmas or Easter but not now as it's too early(I've been editing nearly everyday for four months but I think it's still too soon). But it means a lot that you have a lot in faith in me and you would trust me with the admin tools. AngelOfSadness talk 23:08, 14 October 2007 (UTC)

User Page

How can i make my user page as pretty as yours?

Hey, I'm glad you like my page. :) My good friend User:Phaedriel is actually the one that designed it; I give her a shoutout at the bottom of the page. You should go over to her talk page and ask for her help! GlassCobra 23:26, 14 October 2007 (UTC)

Still up

I wish I could go to bed, but I have a French midterm to study for. Of course, I'm on Wikipedia instead. :P GlassCobra 06:53, 15 October 2007 (UTC)

Yup, it's almost three in the morning, should be in bed..yet I'm still here on my obsession too...;) I'm leaving tomorrow for a business trip to NYC tomorrow and I still haven't packed...yet here I type...<sigh>. Glad I'm in good company, tho...nice to hear from ya, GC! Love that username, btw...very cool... Dreadstar 06:59, 15 October 2007 (UTC)
Wow, a business trip? That's pretty sweet. Thanks for the compliment on my name, it's a reference to a band that my uncle had when he was younger, The Glass Cobras. Too bad they're not very notable, or I'd write an article about them, haha. :P GlassCobra 07:01, 15 October 2007 (UTC)
The Glass Cobras...wow..very interesting name. What kind of music did they play? Darn, I should really get to bed..I'll talk to you soon, dude! Either study or get some sleep! (yeah, like I can talk..sheesh...;) Dreadstar 07:09, 15 October 2007 (UTC)

Status

You steal my status thing? :P GlassCobra 07:23, 15 October 2007 (UTC)

Wow, I've lost count of how many people have watchlisted my talk page. Sorry, it was such a sweet image and all! Dihydrogen Monoxide (H2O) 07:24, 15 October 2007 (UTC)
Haha, dude, I'm kidding, don't worry. It's not even mine, I stole it from Persian Poet Gal! GlassCobra 07:26, 15 October 2007 (UTC)
Sssh ;) Dihydrogen Monoxide (H2O) 07:26, 15 October 2007 (UTC)
Nice. :P Thanks for cleaning up my editor review, by the way, and moving that guy's comments to the main page. I would never have seen them. Actually, I never expected so many people to reply to my review, so that's sort of nice. :) GlassCobra 07:44, 15 October 2007 (UTC)

Okay, that's all for me; I've got a French midterm tomorrow that I still have to study for. Night man. GlassCobra 08:19, 15 October 2007 (UTC)

Typo redirect Britney Spears *Blackout*

Information icon.svg
Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on Britney Spears *Blackout*, by another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. The tag claims that it should be speedily deleted because Britney Spears *Blackout* is a redirect page resulting from an implausible typo (CSD R3).

To contest the tagging and request that administrators wait before possibly deleting Britney Spears *Blackout*, please affix the template {{hangon}} to the page, and put a note on its talk page. If the article has already been deleted, see the advice and instructions at WP:WMD. Feel free to contact the bot operator if you have any questions about this or any problems with this bot, bearing in mind that this bot is only informing you of the nomination for speedy deletion; it does not perform any nominations or deletions itself.

IP vandal category

Not sure. However, I think that perhaps we should set a minimum criteria for "vandalism". What do you think? - jc37 08:22, 15 October 2007 (UTC)

Well as I said, I had only been placing the blatant vandals that I came across; level 2 and higher, no test editors. I think that if we only placed IPs that were actually blocked for vandalism, that would be counterproductive. Conversely, if we placed every IP that made any kind of unconstructive edit into the category, it would get out of control very quickly. As it stands, its most important use is seeing that an IP is included in the category, which can give a hint as to what any future contributions might be. I may have placed a few shared/educational IPs in there, but we should probably refrain from those; due to the inconsistency of their edits, it might cause bias against them and loss of good faith, constructive edits. What are your thoughts? GlassCobra 14:14, 15 October 2007 (UTC)
That sounds like a good start for criteria. Would you mind putting something like that in the category intro for future reference? Also, there have been several discussions about school IPs. I think it might be a good idea to make a parent category for school IPs, with the school IP ranges in sub-categories. I think it would be a good reference. - jc37 21:45, 15 October 2007 (UTC)
Okay, I've edited the category description. I've left notes at WT:VAND, WT:LONG, WT:AIV, and WP:VPP, but the main discussion is at the first link. GlassCobra 02:26, 16 October 2007 (UTC)
Looks good to me : ) - jc37 11:05, 16 October 2007 (UTC)
