Proposed deletion

Just a quick note to say that if you agreed with a proposed deletion, you can do also signify this with the {{prod2}} template. In this case, I'm just working on getting the socks banned (User:Che Guvara is already gone, and I hope User:Darth Blinky very soon as well). Cheers --Pak21 16:03, 6 September 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for that, have just notified User:DarthBinky of this account's activity Hut 8.5 16:04, 6 September 2006 (UTC)

apparently this user is a sock puppet, this would explain a lot (see the Rome Total War online clans page)--James Robinson 16:39, 6 September 2006 (UTC)

I respectfully request that you either provide VALID evidence of your allegation or withdraw it. I am NOT a sockpuppet. Please note that making unfounded allegations such as this can be considered a personal attack. Hut 8.5 16:41, 6 September 2006 (UTC)

Someone removed the prod notice, so I listed it on AFD (my first time doing such, so I hope I did it right). Also, I removed your prod2 notice- that is used to support a prod, not an AFD- AFD agree/disagree should be posted to the AFD discussion page (which is linked at the top of the article). Cheers --DarthBinky 17:38, 6 September 2006 (UTC)

Sorry - should have known. Hut 8.5 17:39, 6 September 2006 (UTC)

Hut 8.5 has been bullying me online he deletes any thing i do and has made several allergations aginst me with no evidence i want him banned or im writting to the press about that wiki encourages and protects cyber bullys please excuse my spelling im in a hurry.Ivona onatop 17:43, 6 September 2006 (UTC)

All you have done is make unfounded allegations, remove warnings and vandalise pages, so no wonder... Hut 8.5 17:45, 6 September 2006 (UTC)

Unterseeboot 973

The allegations you made on my talk page are quite frankly ridiculous I ask you to cease and desist I will be fixing the mistake you have made on the u-boat matter, there was no Hoarsefield on that boat he was removed from the front line for cowardice and put on shore. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Ivona onatop (talkcontribs) .

The source that I added today confirms that he was on the boat. Hut 8.5 16:59, 6 September 2006 (UTC)


You may wish to be aware of this edit, which I suspect wasn't you. Cheers --Pak21 11:33, 7 September 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for that - I didn't post it. Hut 8.5 14:34, 7 September 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for the additional accounts: I've added six of them to my list. The rest don't seem to being used abusively, so I've assumed good faith and left them off for now. Cheers --Pak21 15:41, 7 September 2006 (UTC)

National Cipher Challenge

Hi Hut 8.5, just as an idea could we display the winners of the recent National Cipher Challenge and tell what happened for example with the enigma code. And perhaps we could give details of the next cipher challenge being done in the napoleonic times. Oh by the way did you take part in the challenge last year?Cavalier... 15:32, 7 September 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for this. I suppose we could - when I wrote the article not much of this had happened. I did take part last year and came 14th (under the name of "Hut 8.5"). Hut 8.5 15:35, 7 September 2006 (UTC)

Wow. Well done i bet you must be really pleased. I think it should be alright to list the winners, unless Wikipedia counts it as advertising.. which it shouldn't because it is a notable eventCavalier... 15:44, 7 September 2006 (UTC)

Thanks. Go ahead and edit the article yourself, if you like. Hut 8.5 15:46, 7 September 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for the note on my userpage. Is it alright if i (should) start editing it tonight, only as i need to do a bit of revision for a test i have soonCavalier... 15:49, 7 September 2006 (UTC) Sorry put username in wrong placeCavalier... 15:49, 7 September 2006 (UTC)

You can edit any article whenever you like - no-one owns any of them! Hut 8.5 15:50, 7 September 2006 (UTC)


Thanks for reverting the vandlaim placed on my discussion pageGeneral Oumrov 17:47, 7 September 2006 (UTC)

Unterseeboot 973

I ahev deleted your unteressabot 973 as the navy have reported on the bbc that this ship actually didnt existXenia Onatopp 14:22, 11 September 2006 (UTC)

If you want to delete an article, then please follow the usual deletion procedures. Note that you only deleted a reference to it on my userpage, and not the actual article. If you do try and delete the article then you will need a reference which says that the ship did not exist. Anyway I have several such sources which say it did. Hut 8.5 15:59, 11 September 2006 (UTC)


Looks good, you may find others find it more convenient too since there is only one page. I have had mine configured this way for a while now. David D. (Talk) 15:51, 11 September 2006 (UTC)

  • I think whoever is vandalising this page read our conversation yesterday, to judge from the vandalism here earlier. I've put the userpage back for now. Hut 8.5 16:23, 12 September 2006 (UTC)

The bloody EU

Do you have too put the EU tag on your userpage...--Boris Johnson VC 10:50, 23 September 2006 (UTC)

Any reason why I shouldn't? Hut 8.5 11:02, 23 September 2006 (UTC)

Yes, British supporters of the EU are nothing more than a bunch of traiters. -- 11:04, 23 September 2006 (UTC)

That's your opinion. Rather interesting that a similar IP has been vandalising this very template? [1]

well they where very naughty wern't they. -- 11:16, 23 September 2006 (UTC)

Given that both you and the IP that vandalised the template both seem very anti-EU and most of the digits of the IP are the same (this is a dynamic IP), it would seem that you are one and the same person. Please note that calling me a "traiter" amounts to a personal attack. Hut 8.5 11:19, 23 September 2006 (UTC)

Thank you!

I was about to go report for vandalizing Alcoholics Anonymous when I saw that you'd done it. You're fast! Thank you! RedRollerskate 15:28, 23 September 2006 (UTC)

British International School in Cairo

Hello! I (think I) took care of the NPOV on that page and removed the advert tag on it (after a lot of editing). Looks like just another case school kids having too much fun. Anyways, just wanted to tell you as you put the tag there originally. Cheers and happy editing. Sasquatch t|c 18:29, 8 October 2006 (UTC)

It looks a lot better now. Thanks. Hut 8.5 18:31, 8 October 2006 (UTC)


I've just joined the Muslims guild lol lol lol --Boris Johnson VC 19:26, 10 October 2006 (UTC)

Might be a good idea - you seem to edit a lot of articles relating to Islamic terrorism. Hut 8.5 19:29, 10 October 2006 (UTC)

Welcome to Crypto Project

Glad to have as a member of the WikiProject Cryptography. You'll probably find your time there amusing (teapot tempests have not been unknown -- at digital Rights Managment, for instance), and interesting. Quite a number of the crypto corner editors are acadmically, or professionally involved in cryptography, one way or another.

The crypto corner can always use more keyboard fingers to revert vandalism, confusion, and misapprehensions. Welcome aboard our project to conquer the world by telling everyone about crypto. ww 02:45, 16 October 2006 (UTC)

Vandalism 13 Nov.t

Hi Hut 8.5 -- I have a message from you relating to vandalism stemming from this I.P. Address on Nov13. This is actually a very small high school and I (as a teacher here) was wondering if you could show me the specific act of vandalism. I theorize that the content will help me identify the perpetraitor and hopefully put a stop to the vandalism. Sorry about giving you more to do-- I know these pages get vandalized enough by people with actual axes to grind as a oppossed to bored teenagers. 15:19, 16 November 2006 (UTC)

Hi. I'm not Hut 8.5, but the relevant edits were: diff 1, diff 2, diff 3, diff 4 and diff 5. Hope this helps --Pak21 15:35, 16 November 2006 (UTC)
At a brief glance, they look right. You can always check the edits made by your IP by looking at your contributions. One of them seems to have been made by a Drew Sibert - do you know him? Hut 8.5 16:06, 16 November 2006 (UTC)

Got him --thanks alot for your help. We are great supporters of Wikipedia and appreciate all your help! 20:19, 16 November 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for Reverting to the Correct Version

Thank you for reverting to the the correct version of the The Scarlet Letter article. My VP program bugged and kept reverting to the wrong version. I greatly appreciate it thank you.¤~Persian Poet Gal (talk) 20:36, 20 November 2006 (UTC)

Help request

Hi...i'm new 2 wiki, just wondering if i would be allowed to make a page on how the Muslim/Jewish conpirisy has taken over the Christian holy citys?--Sword of Christ 15:46, 27 November 2006 (UTC)

Replied on your talk page. Hut 8.5 16:37, 27 November 2006 (UTC)

Sock page request

M8 I recomend that u put a link on your page to show people how many edits your socks done!

I really can't be bothered. Hut 8.5 20:05, 28 November 2006 (UTC)

Sword of Christ

For what it's worth, three things convince me he's a sock:

  1. His very first edit was to your user page. I think we know there's group who have done that in the past.
  2. His (now deleted) user page claimed that he was a user in the "North of Italy", but he also edited his user talk page from the IP address, which a whois shows is a Tiscali UK address.
  3. He can't spell "delete", consistently spelling it with an extra "a": [2] [3]. This is exactly the same mistake that Major18 made: [4].

Cheers --Pak21 16:19, 2 December 2006 (UTC)

I know he's a sock as I know the guy personally and he has admitted it! Hut 8.5 16:27, 2 December 2006 (UTC)


I don't understand why, but you put something on my user talk page, then deleted it! Why did you say I could get blocked? I am taking this very seriously. If you do this again, you will be blocked from using Wikipedia. Reply on my talk page. 22:02, 5 December 2006 (UTC)

I've done so. Please note that a single mistake is NOT grounds for blocking. Hut 8.5 18:24, 6 December 2006 (UTC)

You've sure been vandalized a lot.

I guess people hate you or something...



O okay.



Diligent and multiple vandals

There is too much vandalism to make it funny. You recently reverted a vandalism in Number, but missed that the preceeding author (, talk) also was vandalising, and so didn't revert all damage. Perhaps you'd like to warn that guy, too.--JoergenB 13:56, 16 December 2006 (UTC)


No problem at all! I was going to spell check it before i saved the page so greatly appreciated! - Doobuzz 18:50, 26 December 2006 (UTC)


Why change back the Acton page just now? I thought I'd made it better and had taken into account some of the views on the Acton discussion page. I had been trying to make it more interesting and felt that it wasn't inappropriate. Thanks, Steven.Skealey 18:45, 15 January 2007 (UTC)

Response to welcome

Thanks for the welcome. Just a quick there a specific reason I received it? I see it most commonly on user pages of new users who have made some faux pas—or users who have deliberately vandalized pages (in which case the welcomer is apparently assuming good faith). Since I've been a registered user for almost two years, I can't help but wonder if I'm being called on some mistake. If so, I'd like to know what it is, so I can avoid it in the future. Or maybe I'm reading way too much into this, and you were just being friendly. Teflon Don 03:17, 16 January 2007 (UTC)

Please take another look

Hi, In the discussion over deleting List of bow tie wearers you voted to delete and asked "How is this useful?" I took your comment seriously and tried to answer that not only in the discussion afterward but changed the article significantly, which, I think, shows how it is helpful. Please take another look and reconsider. Thanks.Noroton 00:15, 19 January 2007 (UTC)

Hut 8.5, you have been a helpful user and you are now also an experienced user, would you like me to nominate you for admin? I think you would make a great admin!!!--Boris Johnson VC 20:29, 27 January 2007 (UTC)

lol, with an edit like that how could you not see s/he has a sense of humour! Mathmo Talk 03:13, 30 January 2007 (UTC)
Hmm, Hut 8.5, I too think you should indeed be nominated. I'm quite experienced with RfA, and from what I've seen of you I think the RfA regulars will be quite impressed. Please reconsider, I think you'd be an asset as an admin. --Majorly (o rly?) 15:40, 10 February 2007 (UTC)


Saying how big a party is whoes primary objective is to get Britain out of the EU is very important in assessing how much support is has in its home country, and hense how strongly held its beliefs are in the UK population, influencing how lightly britain is to pull out of the EU. [5] P.S. The wikipedia artical says UKIP is the biggest political party, and lets NOT have an edit war!!!--Boris Johnson VC 22:15, 27 January 2007 (UTC)
