Dragon Ball Z[edit]

How is Variety the only source. There is also the Gazzeter and many sources out there. -cman7792 —Preceding unsigned comment added by Cman7792 (talkcontribs) 03:14, 8 September 2007 (UTC)

Can you explain to me why you think that verifiable coverage from Variety and The Hollywood Reporter are not worth keeping. A lot of announced films have their own section on the article of their source material, such as Jurassic Park IV and Knight Rider (film). I attempted to clean up the article for a merge, and I was wondering if you thought that it was not notable to report on any history of the project, one of many which wind up in development hell. —Erik (talkcontrib) - 23:40, 7 September 2007 (UTC)

Ok, thank you, anyway. Happy editing! :) —Erik (talkcontrib) - 23:46, 7 September 2007 (UTC)
Thanks again for taking the time to explain. I won't bother you anymore about this. —Erik (talkcontrib) - 00:01, 8 September 2007 (UTC)

Did you happen to catch today's episode? (2:30 EDT/11:30 PDT) I forgot to tape it. Which was it? -- Flyguy649 talk contribs 22:23, 8 September 2007 (UTC)

Thanks! I have a very unhappy customer here. At least I can say which one it was. Cheers! Flyguy649 talk contribs 22:27, 8 September 2007 (UTC)
I guess they're going to be showing new episodes on Mondays and repeating on Saturdays. I missed today's as well. Apparently the Treehouse website is going to start showing the name of upcoming episodes again, like it did prior to the makeover. Flyguy649 talk contribs 13:45, 10 September 2007 (UTC)

Sara federico[edit]

No, if only one user is reposting an article, the preferred course is to block the user (if he/she doesn't stop) rather than salt the article. If multiple users or IPs are posting the article, then it can be protected. NawlinWiki 01:02, 10 September 2007 (UTC)

Note[edit]

Hi, when tagging an article for speedy deletion, you might want to use an edit summary. Like (db-nonsense) or (Requesting speedy deletion) so others know what you are doing to the article. Cheers,JetLover (Report a mistake) 03:00, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

I was only making a suggestion that would make your edits easier to evauluate, and I don't care how many edits you have. Glad you appreciate my help. Cheers,JetLover (Report a mistake)! —Preceding signed but undated comment was added at 03:07, 21 September 2007 (UTC)
Sure, but the thing is, then the other editors can tell at a glance what you are doing. Do what you want, but just my advice. Cheers,JetLover (Report a mistake) 03:13, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

It's all OK. Cheers,JetLover (Report a mistake) 03:23, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

Just Wanted to Say Thanks![edit]

I was just thanking you for fixing up that section in Iggy Arbuckle. I've never been entirely certain how Robear's name is actually spelt until now. I've also never wanted to risk it, because I happen to have a crush on that character, and I wouldn't want to hurt him in any way. So thank you for confirming the way his name's spelt; editing that article will be a lot easier for me now! Wilhelmina Will 03:04, 22 September 2007 (UTC)

I apologize, i did not look at the page history well enough. Thank you for correcting my mistake. Happy editing! Tiptoety 22:54, 25 September 2007 (UTC)

oh, yes i am well aware of all of that, i was just saying that i was sorry for not seeing that the author blanked the page, and thanking you for fixing my mistake. Thanks again! Tiptoety 22:56, 25 September 2007 (UTC)

Your UAA report[edit]

Thanks for the report on WP:UAA. Just so you know, though, we generally don't accept reports on usernames that haven't made any contributions. We've found they're often just attempts to get attention through seeing their name reported and blocked. Also, I'm not sure that meets the definition of a disruptive username. Again, thanks, and if you have any questions, please let me know on my talk page. - Philippe | Talk 03:41, 12 October 2007 (UTC)

Re:Tagging Brij Kishore Sahni[edit]

That was exactly an A7, as no information on the article indicated why he was notable. And yes, it was non-NPOV, too. Thank you for your effort on watching and tagging inappropriate new pages. Regards, PeaceNT 05:10, 14 October 2007 (UTC)

Sorry? No need[edit]

Absolutely no need at all to be sorry. I don't think they are synonyms, however, as "Chav" is a mainly UK usage and "Wigger" more common in the US. There is some evidence for the Chav subculture incorporating elements of (US) Black hip-hop culture, but then that culture is so widespread that it is not surprising that elements of it crop up in other subcultures.

Hee![edit]

You said on my talk page:

C. Fred run. Run, Fred, run.
Wheeee... HalfShadow 00:38, 15 October 2007 (UTC)

*grin* You are the first person who has made that joke on here, so once I stopped giggling, I had to come by your talk page to congratulate you. Or as I say about it on TinyTIM:

You say "Clock, how do you pronounce C.Fred?"
The Clock on the Wall says "See - Fred. And don't make the 'C.Fred Run' joke, because it's been done before. The next person who makes that joke owes him five dollars."

Fortunately for you, that restriction isn't in effect here. :) But thank you for the dose of levity! —C.Fred (talk) 00:49, 15 October 2007 (UTC)

Pissing into the wind...[edit]

Well, being a stubborn Irishman, pissing into the wind seems like a challenge. But, yes, I understand your point. When I saw on JetLover's page that he'd blocked an almost-identical name just moments before, I realized I was wasting my time. When will these bastards learn?

Disputed fair use rationale for Image:Atomicbettycastpic.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Atomicbettycastpic.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale you have provided for using this image under "fair use" may be invalid. Please read the instructions at Wikipedia:Non-free content carefully, then go to the image description page and clarify why you think the image qualifies for fair use. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If it is determined that the image does not qualify under fair use, it will be deleted within a couple of days according to our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 13:23, 26 October 2007 (UTC)

RE: Lestralen[edit]

I let Dreadstar, an administrator, know of the situation. He should take care of it shortly. Lord Sesshomaru (talkedits) 03:55, 31 October 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for your note, the reason I indef blocked is due to the history of vandalism over the past few weeks - which includes edits like this. But if you think he'll straighten up, I can reduce the block on good faith... Dreadstar 04:04, 31 October 2007 (UTC)
I've reduced the block to three hours on good faith. Let me know if the warring and vandalism continue, and I'll look into it further. Dreadstar 04:10, 31 October 2007 (UTC)

Re: The only time I've ever seen the featured get a protect is when it's taking an absolutely massive pounding[edit]

I prefer to block vandals attacking the featured articles than protecting it. That would give vandals only two chances of attack, the first one to get a {{bv-n}} tag, the second to get blocked. Based on that, unless editors are attacking persons (libel information being added, contact information being included, etc), I think we can handle any article being open for editing (as you say, there are as many users watching it as those vandalizing it). -- ReyBrujo 04:08, 5 November 2007 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:Vincenttwice.jpg)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Vincenttwice.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box.

Fair use rationale for Image:Dreamsharing.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Dreamsharing.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.

hey about the thriller thing[edit]

i removed it because it has been agreed that it is infact not sure. It was introduced to the michael jackson article as well but was removed almost a week ago because it was agreed to be just rumour spread by fox news, infact even fox news said yesterday that he has changed his mind on the re- release. you see the media are playing a very clever game with jackson at the moment, they are saying oh he`s doing this and oh he`s doing that so when he doesn`t go through with it they can call him a failer, liar etc. Jackson never said he would rerelease thriller, jackson never said he would perform thriller at the world music awards, the media is hyping him up so that when he doesn`t deliver they can insult him. Check the michael Jackson discussion page, it will have to be removed. Realist2 20:58, 15 November 2007 (UTC)

Prods[edit]

Hi there - Wikipedia:PROD#Conflicts says that once a prod notice has been removed, even in bad faith, it shouldn't be readded: instead, the article should be taken to AfD. Once an AfD notice is on the article, it must stay there and repeatedly removing an AfD notice can lead to a block (as I noted when declining to block the user in question earlier). I suggest you change your prod to an AFD. Regards, BencherliteTalk 10:30, 16 January 2008 (UTC)

Err, there isn't. {{uw-afd1}} etc are warning notices for removing {{Afd}} notices from articles, not prods. I'm surprised you didn't know / didn't spot the difference. BencherliteTalk 10:41, 16 January 2008 (UTC)

Attack of the Clones (good thread title btw)[edit]

Incidentally, and while the Epic film article is virtually unreferenced, the single reference it contains —besides the "war epic" one to AMG.com— is an essay by Roger Ebert, where he says about the issue, as quoted in the article:

So, do you think it is a viable approach to determine a film's inclusion in the category of epic films (i) on your own, (ii) on the basis of unverified criteria stated in another Wikipedia article? User:Dorftrottel 05:34, January 19, 2008

No, I rather agree with Ebert. Big budget B picture is spot on. The Star Wars franchise has been marketed as epic, but that's simply an advertisement exploitation of the term. User:Dorftrottel 05:39, January 19, 2008
Thanks, and sorry if I came across as a little defensive. You see, I've tried educating Star Wars fans about this before. User:Dorftrottel 05:45, January 19, 2008
I beg to differ. Only episode V is a truly epic experience. To me it's the masterpiece of the series, and far surpasses the others in every single aspect of screenwriting, directing and acting. episode IV suffers from a rather empty story (although less apparent than in the horrible episode I), the usual sluggish directing of post-American-Graffiti Lucas, and the lack of the Imperial march. Episode VI features those annoying furballs for the children audience. User:Dorftrottel 06:06, January 19, 2008

:D There's also a few other reasons why VI sucks. See e.g. this link. Also, ever noticed how Carrie Fisher, hot as she was back then, is always leaning against or holding onto something? That's because her drinking problem was progessing quickly. I also once read that Harrison Ford and Billy Dee Williams regularly had to be dragged away from cocaine parties for the shooting to begin. User:Dorftrottel 06:14, January 19, 2008

I'm not discussing I-III. They happened in another continuum. If I think of all the things Lucas could have done, it makes me puke blood. A better visionary (one capable of making epic films...) would have listened to the postmodern discourse and carefully incorporated this into the film. Some of what I mean can be seen in the RDM Galactica re-imagining. User:Dorftrottel 06:17, January 19, 2008

I think it is good that you are walking away from the trolling. This person might begin to do something more useful with her/his time now.

With reference to this userpage, since I've noticed the user in question has been involved in vandalism and seems to be attempting to annoy you by copying your userpage I have blanked it and protected it to prevent them from editing it. I note that the content included, as your page does, a suggestion that they are involved in anti-vandalism work but since this clearly isn't the case they are misleading other editors by this so I don't consider it appropriate to allow them to edit their userpage.

The Official Handbook to the Marvel Universe is held in very low esteem by the general comic book fan/Wikipedia editor subgroup. Lots42 (talk) 01:13, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

You make valid points. But the usual method is to reference an example. Such as indicating that in BlahBlah Issue (number, month, year), EvilGuy, unaided, punched through an M-1 Abrams tank, then threw a taxi full of accountants into the sun'. That is more clear then saying 'The Handbook says he's really strong'. Lots42 (talk) 01:34, 31 March 2008 (UTC)
I think you yourself just clarified why the handbook is not held in high regard. Plus, like I indicated, vague. Heck, IIRC, even the handbook itself said the comics themselves were more definitive. Lots42 (talk) 01:47, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

Heads up[edit]

That IP that just vandalized my pages is a sock of a indef-blocked known sockpuppeter. βcommand 2 00:31, 4 April 2008 (UTC)

Judicial tyranny article[edit]

I am curious as to why you summarily reverted my changes to this article, which removed a large swathe of unsourced material which had no relation to the subject, was in many cases indisputably factually inaccurate. I believe my talk page explanation was clear. The material I removed was an attempt to turn a reasonable article into a rather wacky soapbox, and should have been removed long ago. Minos P.

WP:ANI[edit]

Thanks. Semi-pp'd. Some are TOR nodes, some are not, but it's easier just to deny at present. --Rodhullandemu (Talk) 01:58, 6 April 2008 (UTC)

My experience is that they tend to be open until someone tells the operators otherwise. In recent cases, they have been flagged as open and anyone seriously wanting to use those IPs can find others. Wikipedia cannot be responsible for its input, in my view. If IP operators tend to be lax about how they allocate IP addresses, then I'd suggest those that use those operators should find a more sensible way of contributing. I know there are difficulties from some countries, but all we have to go on there is how those IP users edit; and currently, it's not looking good. These are not politically oppressed activists, they are nuisances. Feel free to disagree. --Rodhullandemu (Talk) 02:09, 6 April 2008 (UTC)
Well, that's just the nature of anon IPs. Schoolkids tend to be naive, thinking if they don't log in, they can't be traced. Until, of course, we do a 6 month schoolblock and nobody can edit unregistered, which, on balance may be no bad thing. TOR nodes, I can see the advantage of for those who live in repressive countries and have no other way of reaching outside; however, like any open structure, there will be abuse. My own recent professional experience is in detecting paedophiles, and it's a technical nightmare, let alone explaining it all to a jury. Gone are the days of the BBS boards and the overt Usenet groups; even P2P is pretty well sewn-up, so it gets harder and harder. Meanwhile, at least here we can do something to keep it in-house. --Rodhullandemu (Talk) 02:24, 6 April 2008 (UTC)
Well, I liked the principle of "the encyclopedia that anyone can edit", but having seen the other side, I'm beginning to doubt it. I'm tending towards going for registration with an ISP, not a web-email address. That might lose a lot of good editors, but it would certainly lose a lot of bad ones too. But then, as an admin, perhaps I tend to see mostly the bad side. --Rodhullandemu (Talk) 02:33, 6 April 2008 (UTC)

Re to Semi-Protection?[edit]

Not so; you were being crapflooded in the 4channer style; I deleted the revisions after blocking all IPs involved for three months apiece. -Jéské (v^_^v X of Swords) 02:29, 9 April 2008 (UTC)

Re: school IP[edit]

Well, I am using an automatic tool (huggle), so I dont actually look at the vandals' talk pages. Either way, I think you are still supposed to give warnings even with school IPs. J.delanoygabsadds 16:44, 11 April 2008 (UTC)

I scrolled back, and the only possible problem OrangeMarlin might have caused was allegations of incivility toward Hersfold. Can you give me some diffs? I might have missed something in their contribs--unless I was looking in the wrong place. Blueboy96 17:48, 12 April 2008 (UTC)

RE:Just wondering...[edit]

Do you mean using rollback on User:Fantasy Game Productions? I doubt it. The user was being obviously disruptive and removing a deletion tag. I don't think you were in breach of 3RR.¤~Persian Poet Gal (talk) 00:14, 3 May 2008 (UTC)

Three Musketeers3[edit]

Re your message: I didn't think it was an attack either, but it was a sockpuppet account. I reverted the comment because I noticed you reverted the previous one. If you would have preferred that I leave the comment, my apologies. It took me a moment to figure out what he was referring to, but once I figured it out, I discovered that it's another sockpuppet account. -- Gogo Dodo (talk) 20:58, 14 May 2008 (UTC)

Re your message: Yup, just a sock. I had to dig around Pascal.Tesson's log to figure it out. Everything's been deleted or blocked so there isn't much to look at. -- Gogo Dodo (talk) 07:32, 15 May 2008 (UTC)

Re: deletion closure[edit]

Since the article had indeed been uncontroversially deleted, you did close it legitimately. I'd call that good housekeeping. You didn't apply the top template right at the top of the page, so I tidied it up. Were you to close a discussion as a keep, Just be extremely careful with non admin keeps should you close a discussion, and observe Wikipedia:Speedy keep and Wikipedia:Non-admin closure. No matter how good your judgement may be, avoiding any unnecessary bother that might result from it is best. Regards, WilliamH (talk) 21:20, 14 May 2008 (UTC)

The wrong closing template was used - one for normal discussion, not the one for AfD debate. See Wikipedia:Deletion process. I've re-closed it to clarify it was a speedy by User:Inter. Otherwise it looks as though you made the decision, whereas you were just recording the decision made by someone else. Ty 03:01, 21 May 2008 (UTC)

Backyardigan vandalism[edit]

Thank you for the message you left [3] on my talk page. When I blocked the previous IP as per your report to WP:AIV, I went ahead and protected List of Backyardigans episodes for a week. Hopefully this will be enough to give our friend an excuse to find something better to do. --Kralizec! (talk) 00:13, 26 May 2008 (UTC)

Edit war Warning[edit]

Recently you posted a notice on my talk page about my page reverts to the page Teen Titans Go. I heeded your warning and brought up the issue on the talk page of the article. However this IP address has repeatedly ignored the discussion [[4]] and recently added the information again [[5]] for fear of conequences I have not undone his edit as of yet, however if I do undo his edit please understand my attempts to resolve this. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Kurowoofwoof111 (talkcontribs) 23:00, 3 June 2008 (UTC)

RfA comment[edit]

Hey HalfShadow, I noticed this after someone brought it up on IRC, and I felt like I owed it to you to let you know how I felt, rather than keeping my mouth shut. It troubled me, because from a quick glance it looked like a new user who just didn't understand how RfA works (perhaps you didn't mean for it to come across as harsh as it seemed to to me). If you had reason to think they were acting in bad faith, the comment didn't make it clear, your oppose didn't give them any pointers or explanation for your thinking. For the future, I'd urge you to gently explain to the user on their talk page rather than leaving an oppose that could be taken as hurtful or insulting. I feel like most newbies get it and are glad to cooperate when they're approached in a friendly way; at least I've had success with that. Anyway, these are just my thoughts for you to consider if you like, I try to let people know when I have feedback for them. Peace, delldot talk 17:19, 18 June 2008 (UTC)

Please refactor[edit]

vandalism?[edit]

Hi,

I'm confused as to why you undid all my edits to the backyardigans episode page with the comment "rv", which I assume means something about reversing vandalism. I could see a possible objection to one of my changes in that it was somewhat subjective, but most of them were fixing formatting inconsistencies and modify links so that they point to the appropriate topics. Did I do something wrong in the way I added my edits or do you seriously think it's better for "bossa nova" to point to a disambiguation page?

thanks,

Wheathusker (talk) 02:34, 27 June 2008 (UTC)

Ah, yes. Lord love an idiot.[edit]

I got a kick out of your comment regarding our little "Wrath of Revenge" friend.

I love it. Makes me wish I hadn't given back the admin tools. Oh, and he's now at User:Most Unstoppable. I've reported him to AIV, but if you'd like to have the pleasure of hitting the block tab, I certainly would understand. --PMDrive1061 (talk) 16:24, 16 July 2008 (UTC)

There is some indication that he can speak some English, but you are right that I cannot be certain that the messages have gotten through. In any event I have very strong doubt that he wrote anything worth keeping and am not going to exert much effort in communicating with him.
