Block of 172.148.57.29[edit]

Thanks for blocking contributions. This is a stalker on AOL who repeatedly vandalizes my talk page; my user page has been semi-protected indefinitely because of him. You can identify him by his signature edits, childish obscenities and often editing the Tiny article with a comment revealing his fixation on "Justin Trudeau's penis".

Unfortunately, AOL issues a new IP address to a user on nearly every request, so he makes edits from multiple IPs in the same day. Another admin User:Alison played whack-a-mole with him a while back in my behalf and got frustrated. Anyway, thanks for temporarily stopping his disruptions. -Amatulic 00:59, 1 August 2007 (UTC)

I-35 Bridge Collapse[edit]

I cited my source. I feel it's an accurate source and assumption. I do not feel it is vandalism at all. So please stop vandalizing my talk page.

Your edits were patent nonsense and your source provided no justification. GoodnightmushTalk 01:10, 2 August 2007 (UTC)

how?[edit]

ok, how am i vandalizing? I don't feel as though I am. I apologize if you think I am. I'm not editing the page anymore because I don't want to be blocked from editing. But please note that I don't feel I was vandalizing in the first place. All I'm asking from you is an explanation about how what I had put in was perceived as vandalism and not something legitimate. what does a source have to include? please tell me how mine was not an accurate source.

i'm not trying to be mean or cause trouble here. if i were i'd keep editing after you told me to stop. all im asking *from you* is clarification.

it's an open encyclopedia right? so please explain to me why my contribution wasn't valued, and what are the criteria for it to be added? that's all. i just want an answer, again, i'm not trying to start anything. atleast a page i can read up. i feel i'm helping out and i don't understand.

Your edit read "the bridge collapsed due to the weight of the sins of the homosexuality population in the twin city metropolitan area..." and your source was goatse.cx, not a news source. GoodnightmushTalk 01:16, 2 August 2007 (UTC)

OK, but how is that not a valid statement, and more importantly not a valid source? I'm being serious here, I just want an answer and some guidelines so the things I do add will be in terms with the regulations of content. That's all. And I do appreciate you continuing to respond and to answer my edits.

I've provided a few links at your talk. GoodnightmushTalk 01:24, 2 August 2007 (UTC)`

thank you very much. I do appreciate it.

blocked vandal is back[edit]

you might want to block 70.127.194.7 again. He vandalized the article Aerith Gainsborough twice after being unblocked. I reverted one edit. Savie Kumara 05:31, 2 August 2007 (UTC)

My user page edit[edit]

While I appreciate your vigilance in keeping out vandals on User pages, that was me. I sometimes neglect to sign in when editing.--Amadscientist 03:23, 9 August 2007 (UTC)

I still appreciate your looking out for users. I am always a little worried about vandals on my user and sub pages since everyone can edit. Some people can be real a******s. Thanks anyway.--Amadscientist 03:31, 9 August 2007 (UTC)

Regarding the Anti-Christ article[edit]

I have read that the Antichrist may have been born in either 1952, 1960, 1972, 1976, 1984, or 1996. I have also read that 1988 and 1992 are possibilities.

Replied at your talk. GoodnightmushTalk 04:55, 10 August 2007 (UTC)


Okay, I will try to do that. It is connected to astrology actually. The years are of mostly the Chinese Rat year (which is claimed to be the most destructive sign), and to a lesser extant the Dragon and Monkey years. These three signs are part of a single, very powerful trine. It's a long story, but I will try to dig up the info needed. Thanks.

Here are the links to the signs Rat, Dragon, Monkey.

Pony article[edit]

I don't know who went and removed the permanent semi-protection on Pony but can you lend a hand to get it re-protected? Seems that request results vary with which wiki admin is reading on a given day, people who don't know the history of the article won't protect it because any single day it usually isn't horrible. But without something to slow down the kids, this article is vandalized at least a couple times a day, sometimes more, and almost every day. Very annoying and apparently eternal. Not sure why people want to pick on ponies, but it gets tiring to keep reverting when some of us want to spend our time on substantive edits on other articles, sigh... Montanabw(talk) 06:34, 16 August 2007 (UTC)

It does seem to be a borderline protection case. In the week since it was unprotected its averaging less than one act of vandalism per day, so even though its a chronic problem, it will probably be denied for lack of activity. If it gets to a couple instances a day for a few days in a row, report it to WP:RFP, but unless its getting hit more than once a day consistently, I don't think protection is justified. GoodnightmushTalk 18:33, 16 August 2007 (UTC)
Well, keep it on your watch list too, if you could be so kind. As far as multiple hits per day, once school starts in September, we should start seeing that...sigh...this is a popular vandalism hit site for the middle school crowd. Between the "I have a pony named Susie" and "Ponies have a big (*****)" nonsense, it just gets soooo old. Montanabw(talk) 17:32, 17 August 2007 (UTC)
It looks like the vandalism escalated enough to justify protection and its been approved at WP:RFP. GoodnightmushTalk 18:08, 17 August 2007 (UTC)

Capa's Falling Soldier on Capa page.[edit]

Yes, that section's overtechnical, contains original research and is wrong (gives two possible times for the photograph and then plumps for the second later time without considering the direction in which the photograph was taken). Could be moved to the Frederico Borrell Garcia page.Ning-ning 08:27, 13 November 2007 (UTC)

Comment : the photograph was evidently taken with the sun behind the photographer . Every day there are two timepoints with the sun at a given altitude . Since witnesses registered the recording time about 5 o'clock p.m., this point of time was selected from two . The time point is inseparately interconnected with sun's azimuth [=direction from observer's place].Without a technical solution , possibly not immediately understood by everybody , the concerning conclusion[s] cannot be verified . In the sciences we always at first demand abandon our conclusion for a better one . If Ning–ning would agree I would like to replace the paragraph at the same place. 84.80.66.78 (talk) 11:36, 19 November 2007 (UTC) / desertfax . Nov 19th / 2007

Hi Desertfax, The paragraph was removed for two reasons. First, it appeared to be an unnecessary amount of detail for a page about the photographer, not the photograph. Second, it seemed to violate Wikipedia's policy regarding No Original Research. If you can find a reliable source that says what you wish to add, then a case could be made for reinserting that information, or even giving the photograph its own article.

Replied at your talk page. GoodnightmushTalk 22:12, 28 November 2007 (UTC)
Hello. You appear to know Coccyx Bloccyx so I was wondering if you might be as kind as to arbitrate a discussion on the removal/editing of the References in popular culture section of this article? He/She has not yet replied to a comment I left on his/her talk page, but I'm hoping we can have a fruitful conversation once he/she does. There is an ongoing thread on the talk page. Thanks. ↔ Dennywuh (talk) 12:23, 30 November 2007 (UTC)
Following your suggestion I've reworded the list of references into a single paragraph, that I've proposed to include at the end of the article. Thanks for your help, I wish all WP debates were as civilised and fruitful as this one. Regards, Dennywuh 16:45, 1 December 2007 (UTC)
