Lightning Rod[edit]

Heads up; getting individual reports that LR is in "technical rehearsals" now. Park guests are receiving tickets allowing them to ride, as long as the ride remains functional. Hardly anything encyclopedic, but we should be ready if editors start adding this. --McDoobAU93 18:04, 23 May 2016 (UTC)

@McDoobAU93: Thanks for the heads up. By the way, I replied to the thread "Under refurbishment" and WP:TRAVELGUIDE about this sort of thing. The more I think about it, the more we should probably do away with "Testing" at the very least. It's a short-term status that doesn't need to be tracked on an encyclopedia IMHO. Someone could modify the infobox template to automatically change testing to "under construction" when someone enters it. --GoneIn60 (talk) 18:11, 23 May 2016 (UTC)

ANI Thread[edit]

Information icon There is currently a discussion at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents regarding an issue with which you may have been involved. Thank you.

Images[edit]

Greetings.

I am new to Wikipedia and I was wondering how I can add a image of Twisted Colossus and Colossus to its webpage?

Thanks — Preceding unsigned comment added by Marth The Hero King (talkcontribs) 04:23, 3 June 2016 (UTC)

Marth The Hero King – Thanks for your interest in contributing to Wikipedia! I don't have a lot of experience with uploading images, but I suggest you visit WP:IMAGE. There are links to tutorials from that main page. Good luck! --GoneIn60 (talk) 01:44, 10 June 2016 (UTC)

Incredible Hulk coaster[edit]

The Hulk isn't SBNO. The park has been testing the ride since last month . ROBLOXfan123 (talk) 19:08, 10 June 2016 (UTC)

ROBLOXfan123: If you can cite a reliable source to back the claim, feel free to change it to testing. Just so you're aware, we've been discussing the possibility of removing short-term statuses from the infobox (such as "testing") at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Amusement Parks. Feel free to weigh in with your opinion there if you want. Encyclopedia's should have a long-term view in mind, and items like this that require up-to-the-minute status updates don't really belong in an encyclopedia. --GoneIn60 (talk) 20:30, 10 June 2016 (UTC)

Another heads-up[edit]

I really appreciate your help and editing of all the amusement park articles here. I wanted to ask you to put the various Six Flags Over Georgia articles on your radar/watchlist for the next week. They Tweeted that they would "say good-bye" to a "30-plus-year-old attraction" on Thursday in order to make way for the 2017 installation, whatever it may be. I've already had to revert one edit adding speculation to one park ride. I'd be grateful for any oversight you can provide, depending on your schedule. --McDoobAU93 02:08, 14 June 2016 (UTC)

McDoobAU93: Sure thing. My presence will be limited over the next week, as I'm in the process of getting my home listed on the market, but I'll definitely keep an eye out when I'm on. --GoneIn60 (talk) 14:13, 14 June 2016 (UTC)

Independence Day reviews[edit]

My bad dude. I don't check Talk pages or edit summaries very often, I assumed since the reverts from "negative" to "mixed" were often awkward worded it was done by random IP users and wasn't a consensus. It's all in good faith (as most reviews and metacritic/RT imply negative reception) but it's only Wikipedia so I'm not about to start a war over an opening sentence haha. I'll leave it be and sorry for stressing you out. TropicAces (talk) 18:38, 24 June 2016 (UTC)tropicAces

TropicAces, no problem. I figured you weren't reading the alerts or edit summaries, considering you usually collaborate well with other editors. Just an FYI that there have been many long discussions that we as editors cannot interpret the numbers ourselves, and while "mixed" normally gets by fine, "negative" and "positive" usually cause a lot of edit-warring without a source cited right next to the word or sentence. Past discussions have determined "not well-received" was fine in the absence of a source that calls it "negative". Also, we should permit short, concise statements in the lead that summarize some of the feedback. I'll reinstate it since you're dropping your opposition, but if you change your mind, feel free to join the discussion on the article talk page. Thanks! --GoneIn60 (talk) 19:39, 24 June 2016 (UTC)

SockPuppet or Whatever[edit]

Hey man, got tagged in a bunch of things about double accounts and Sock Puppets and things of that nature (I'm only going to read so much of those pages). If you need clarification about something just hit up my page or respond to this. If you think I may have two accounts, it's likely because my app sometimes randomly logs me out without notification so my edits post as IP. Hopefully this all gets resolved. Wikipedia ain't stressing over haha... Have a blessed one. TropicAces (talk) 22:24, 28 June 2016 (UTC)tropicAces

TropicAces, no worries. The SPI didn't concern you. Two other editors (or possibly one depending on the outcome of that SPI) were trying to rope you into a conversation that wasn't about you. They noticed you and I had a recent disagreement, so they figured they could solicit your help to argue in their favor. Unless you're interested in reading that discussion-turned-novel, I'd just ignore it! Have a good one... --GoneIn60 (talk) 01:20, 29 June 2016 (UTC)

grate praise for your SPI on trollls[edit]

Good catch on the socks! My eyes bled reading all hundreds pages. You know how contenteditman and the anonymous IP are probably the same troll? I caught Parsley Man slip! He's probably the master sock of them all!! He and the anonymous IP from the SPI made overlapping edits if carefully compare their history. I think he realized his mistake so he quickly cover up and pretend to talk to himself and reverse own edits to cover tracks!!! Very so so very stupid really. I would report on SPI but not know well enough how. English just not good enough. I think troll smarter than appears. Using decoy accounts on separate tracks to troll and active Parsley Man main account on main track for serious editing. All are same troll. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 92.63.100:80 (talk) 04:40, 2 July 2016 (UTC)

@92.63.100:80: I briefly looked through past edits of these accounts and didn't see the overlapping edits you mentioned. Provide a link to the article, page, or diff that you're referring to. Thanks. --GoneIn60 (talk) 06:25, 5 July 2016 (UTC)
Overlapping editss [1] + [2]. Observe mistake slip. Forgetss login and on same pages same day! Transformers and Sevouflurane!!!! [3]+[4]. [5] and [6]. Couldnt be coincidence <-> Parsleyman catches mistake and speaks to himself to cover up slip! [[7]] All are same troll! 195.88.208.155 (talk) 17:24, 9 July 2016 (UTC)
Sorry, I still don't see the connection. The edits were on the same articles, but they weren't making the exact same edits. It could very well be two different users. Since you know where the SPI is, consider adding Parsley Man to the list of potential socks if you feel strongly about it. You just need to provide the links and a reason. I don't see a strong enough connection to add it myself. --GoneIn60 (talk) 19:20, 9 July 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for fixing my comment[edit]

Was never sure on what was the correct way to fix grammatical errs for a comment. Thank you for doing that for me with the strike out. So that's what the "strike out" is for. Duly noted.184.96.160.15 (talk) 22:14, 6 July 2016 (UTC)

Compliment[edit]

Meant sincerely. We have a number of mutual pages on our Watchlist, and as far as I can recall, your edits and edit-summaries that I've seen are reasonable, constructive and helpful. I certainly never meant to give an impression I was being flippant or sarcastic ... it was meant genuinely. --Tenebrae (talk) 18:09, 17 September 2016 (UTC)

Tenebrae, thanks for taking the time to clarify what you meant, but my reaction was partially in jest. I assumed you meant well! --GoneIn60 (talk) 07:37, 25 September 2016 (UTC)

Big Dipper (Geauga Lake)[edit]

Hello GoneIn60. Yes Cedar Fair is secretly planning to demolish the Big Dipper. It was revealed by the Aurora mayor in this article yesterday. Demolishing the world's 10th oldest coaster is unacceptable and my coaster foundation will take actions against it. This 1925 built coaster can be restored and that's a FACT. Here is the link for the article to prove it. http://www.auroraadvocate.com/news%20local/2016/09/21/safety-is-issue-when-peopletrespass-on-cedar-fair-land — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2605:E000:FE00:A300:8438:B501:E923:8D55 (talk) 02:43, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

Keep in mind that the reason I removed your entries from the Geauga Lake and Big Dipper articles is because you didn't provide a source. While it is great you provided one here, I mentioned in the edit summary that you should review WP:CITE, which describes how to properly cite sources in articles, and WP:V, which explains the reason why proper citations are often required. Earlier when I removed your entries, I did a quick google search but was unable to locate a source. Be sure to cite sources in future edits. Thank you. --GoneIn60 (talk) 04:26, 23 September 2016 (UTC)
