Thanks[edit]

Thanks for your compliment. I'm guessing you're referring to Saw III?--CyberGhostface 19:28, 5 September 2006 (UTC)

User Pages[edit]

Please leave userpage edits to those who own the respective pages -- stick to editing your own page, not other users' pages.  :-) also, signatures are for TALK: pages, not user pages.

Hope this helps! /Blaxthos 14:35, 11 September 2006 (UTC)

Blaxthos is pretending to instruct people on how to use Wikipedia? That's rich.. I love the irony in the facetious obliviousness. -Markusbradley 07:04, 19 September 2006 (UTC)

List of maps in Company of Heroes[edit]

Heya. I noticed your creation of the talk page for the above article, noting that you intend to take the page to Deletion Review. If you haven't done so already, a review can be requested at WP:DRV - when you start a review, remember to link to the original AfD discussion, which is here.

I've nominated the Talk:List of maps in Company of Heroes page for speedy deletion, just to keep things tidy. I'm doing so simply because it's bad practice to have talk pages without an associated article: if that's deleted, it won't affect your chances of having List of maps in Company of Heroes re-created.

Happy editing! Daveydweeb (chat/patch) 07:26, 5 October 2006 (UTC)

And just in case you need a link to the original deletion discussion, you can find that here: Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of maps in Company of Heroes. If you'd like to request a review, please see deletion review. Happy editing. Luna Santin 07:30, 5 October 2006 (UTC)
Hey, can you give me a link to the deletion discussion for the talk page? I'm not sure if I'm going to bring it to deletion review. What I'd like to do is look at the original article to see if it's worth saving, rather than creating a whole new one myself. I would rather you hadn't deleted the talk page, so we could have this discussion there :-\ But okay. Is there anyway I can look at a copy of the article before it was deleted? - JNighthawk 14:46, 5 October 2006 (UTC)
To answer your questions: there was no deletion discussion, since it fell under the "db-talk" criterion for speedy deletion, and was thus deleted immediately by an admin. It wouldn't have been worth mentioning anyway, as far as I can tell. Unfortunately, it isn't possible for regular users to view deleted content, although it may be possible for admins to do so: it might be worth asking someone like Mailer Diablo about it. If you can't view the old version, you can propose the form you'd like the re-created one to take, telling us what information you'd like it to include and so forth, rather than having to totally rewrite it yourself.

Re: Guitar Hero II (Green-Orange chords)[edit]

The link that I provided as proof that Green-Orange chords would return in Guitar Hero II was buried in the middle of the talk page ha. I've given it its own little prominent section now (beneath where the original discussion on the subject had arisen). Thanks for the heads up.


Hey! Sorry if I've messed up your page or anything, I am not familiar with this yet. I was coming to say thanks for posting in response to my call for help, and I noticed that you're a game designer! You've worked on SourceForts, which I am vaguely familiar with. More to the point, I spend about 80% of my free time level-designing for Source. Namely my own projects at the moment, but I have been doing so for over a year, and I am getting pretty advanced at it now.

I am a member at Interlopers, although I have been Inactive as of late due to college work. Drop me a message at my talk page sometime, it'd be great to hear about your experiences. (I'm learning VB right now too, although I guess you're into C and Java or similar). Anyway, mail me! :P Needles-Kane 13:34, 10 December 2006 (UTC)

hello, also[edit]

When I started, I was the only wikipedian in New Hampshire (at least, the only one who admitted it) - DavidWBrooks 12:46, 16 December 2006 (UTC)

I've been using Wikipedia as a guest for a few years now and got an account a year or two ago. I'm starting to get my user-page going with my info, but I'm terrible at making things look good. - JNighthawk 22:43, 16 December 2006 (UTC)


Thanks[edit]

Thanks for your entry on the delete page [[1]]. I am hoping that you will reconsider your position in light of my last clarification. Coinman62 16:57, 20 January 2007 (UTC)

WP:RM request for IEEE 754[edit]

Done, but there's a lot of double redirects left that I don't have time to chase down and fix for you. Please check "What links here" and fix any double redirects. Thanks. Opabinia regalis 05:12, 25 January 2007 (UTC)

Help?[edit]

I redirected Pain (song) to Pain (Jimmy Eat World song), because there are multiple songs named Pain. However, the "What links here" page for Pain (song) shows a bunch of things that don't link there anymore. I believe it's because of the Jimmy Eat World template which I updated with the new page (and moved, because of an incorrect name). I've got no idea why it still thinks pages link there. - JNighthawk 16:36, 16 February 2007 (UTC)

Changes to the what-links-here list due to changes to a template aren't updated very quickly, because they're a low priority for the software. The next time each of the erroneously-listed pages is edited, it'll be removed from the list, until eventually the list is correct. --ais523 16:48, 16 February 2007 (UTC)
Thanks! I'll leave the pages alone, then - JNighthawk 17:15, 16 February 2007 (UTC)

Hey - sorry for the wait[edit]

User:AmendmentNumberOne[edit]

That user was banned for making a lot of (now-deleted) articles containing the HDDVD string, and for tantrumming about how Digg was being an Evil Awful Censor. DS 12:33, 2 May 2007 (UTC)

You said: "Hi. Would you mind explaining how that user was acting in bad faith and deserved a permanent ban? His contributions only show what appear to be good faith edits. Agree or disagree with his argument, it is not a reason for banning, especially with no warning and no reason. I believe he was unjustly banned."

He has been posting the HDDVD/Blu-ray DVD decryption key number which has been causing the MPAA to issue legal warnings, in an apparently deliberate attempt to get Wikipedia sued. --Yamla 13:43, 2 May 2007 (UTC)
Deleted articles don't show up in the contributions log. More to the point, I freely admit that I may have misspoken as to the precise nature of the infraction, but he showed up with a Frea-Speach (sic) name and immediately started fussing about in the HD-DVD Decoder String Deletion Review. A single-purpose account if I ever saw one, and I've damn well seen lots of them. DS 01:20, 3 May 2007 (UTC)

JNighthawk, thanks for helping out with my situation. It has been appreciated. -AmendmentNumberOne 04:07, 8 May 2007 (UTC)

Not a problem. "I may hate what you say, but I'll fight for your right to say it." Since I can't see the deleted articles and your contributions, I have no idea whether their accusations are true (eh, Wikipedia, who will watch the watchers?), but you're completely right in that they banned you over what was essentially a content dispute. - JNighthawk 23:18, 8 May 2007 (UTC)
Thanks for the kind words. The accusations made were false. I have posted an 'Open informal complaint about misuse of administrative powers' during the incident over at the Administrators' noticeboard. I don't want this to happen to other people and believe similar to you about fighting for the right to say things. I hope to see Wikipedia improved by this discussion. Cheers! -AmendmentNumberOne 01:19, 9 May 2007 (UTC)

Addendum[edit]

I did not ban him. I indefinitely blocked him as his account was not one that was ever used or appeared to ever be used to contribute to the encyclopedia. As for your "I have not editted in months" thing, you have actually editted articles. AmendmentNumberOne did not touch the mainspace whatsoever. That and his disruptiveness in complaining about the initial block by DragonflySixtyseven following an apology from the original blocking administrator which AmendmentNumberOne refused was reason enough to block him; not ban him.—Ryūlóng (竜龍) 03:32, 10 May 2007 (UTC)

Why is it your goal to get a troll unblocked?—Ryūlóng (竜龍) 00:46, 12 May 2007 (UTC)

I don't believe him to be a troll. I wish him to be unblocked, but beyond that, I wish the admins to start following the policies they claim to enforce and to see that the admins begin getting the oversight required. If an instance such as this can be allowed and even condoned, it shows a dangerous problem for Wikipedia. - JNighthawk 01:28, 12 May 2007 (UTC)

Meteora (album)[edit]

Ahh, haha. I was using Lupin's tool for spelling – it didn't look wrong in context, but oh well. I suppose one in so many will be a mistake. — Bob • (talk) • 05:49, July 28, 2007 (UTC)

Spore[edit]

Just wanted to say thanks for your (somewhat) kind words. :D :P And yes, I guess you can understand just how incredibly frustrating it is arguing with somebody who just won't listen to reason. I've had to literally repeat my argument *so* many times it's not funny. Anyway, I just hope that you don't undergo the same struggle that I'm going through. I just hope that an admin would step in and cool off the situation as I've been very calm about it despite how disrespectful JAF was towards me. Thanks again. Sillygostly (talk) 07:55, 15 February 2008 (UTC)

Just thought I'd inform you that I thought "before April 2009" sounded a bit unencyclopedic in the scope of the article. Q1 2009 sounds a bit better IMO. And one of our arguments that was sparked in regard to Spore was that we leave out "placeholder" symbols such as "RP" or "TBC" until the finalized rating is released (such as T or M). Good day. :) Sillygostly (talk) 08:02, 15 February 2008 (UTC)

Re:Hi there[edit]

I didn't know you were an avid Wikipedian (is that even a valid statement?) I don't spend so much time on it, as you can see from my user page. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Knetworx (talkcontribs) 20:43, 3 March 2008 (UTC)

Red Faction: Guerrilla[edit]

Hey There. I'm the guy who edited the Red Faction: Guerrilla page. I wanted to doubly encourage you to add onto and correct anything on the page. Also, I would like to email you on some other game related projects as well. Please leave me your email or email me at Mac3GroundZ3R0@hotmail.com Thanks, ~Gamertag/ Wiki username: GroundZ3R0 002 —Preceding unsigned comment added by GroundZ3R0 002 (talkcontribs) 10:21, 12 August 2008 (UTC)

Hey there, quick question. I was hoping you could tell me if RF:G will have multiplayer bots? I am dying to know and I figured you could be the one to answer this. I would appreciate this very much. GroundZ3R0 002 (talk) 20:29, 25 April 2009 (UTC)

Hey.[edit]

Hey there. I am starting in the gaming business and could use some help from an expert. If you wouldn't mind, I'd like to discuss some stuff revolving around the subject.

HI[edit]

Just saying hi, was checking out your edits of the full sail article, I was thinking of cleaning it up a bit, to make it closer to the guidelines as a part of the Wikiproject Universities what do you think? andyzweb (talk) 01:53, 22 October 2009 (UTC)
