Spelling

I didn't want to put this on the Athlon page, as the user was a probable troll (I'm disinclined to take anyone who isn't a newbie seriously if they insist on editing anonymously). But there are cases where spelling-change may be justified; if the article is about something strongly or specifically US (or whatever) related, MoS recommends using the US (or whatever) spelling. This doesn't really apply to Athlon though, which is made and sold throughout the world. Fourohfour 18:34, 29 January 2006 (UTC)

Sorry

OK, I have rolled back myself. Sorry. abakharev 00:00, 20 March 2006 (UTC)

Intel Core Microarchitecture

I must have missed that one. Regardless, that was a single warning for the single edit made by that IP on that day; blocking an anon usually requires multiple progressively serious warnings over a reasonably short period of time. Even in cases of blatant vandalism, a single IP usually gets two or three warnings over the course of 24 hours before it's blocked, and there's no point in blocking an IP that hasn't edited in weeks or months. Because IPs can and frequently do change hands (and they clearly have in this case) it is more likely that the block will affect another user than that the one who earned the block will try to use the same address again before the block expires.

Vandalism is easy to revert, and in cases like these, where a user makes a single drive-by edit every few weeks, it's usually easier to revert and drop a {{test2}} on the user's talk page. See Wp:vandalism#Dealing_with_vandalism for a deeper explanation of proper warning procedures. -- Vary | Talk 00:54, 20 March 2006 (UTC)

Alright--thanks for the explanation. Jgp 02:34, 20 March 2006 (UTC)

Second AfD

It was no problem at all; for future reference, using {{subst:Afdx]] in place of the {{subst:afd1}} should allow one to create a separate page for the second nom. If ever you should forget to create a new nom page, you may also create a new page styled "Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Article name (xx nom)" and then copy and paste the discussion to the new page, changing the page's listing at AfD in order that the AfD link should reference the "(xx nom)" page. I'm not certain that the latter method is consistent with the GFDL, but we'll hope no one notices. :) Joe 19:17, 12 April 2006 (UTC)

Intel Core 2 Architecture

First of all, apologies if I wreck you page, I'm still figuring my way around here! Secondly, I amended the specs for the Conroe XE because allegedly Intel are pulling the 3.33GHz 1333Mhz FSB model in favour of a 2.93GHz 1066MHz FSB model (still multiplier unlocked), the 3.33GHz model will follow later this year / next year depending on how AMD respond. RazzleUltra, 22nd May 2006

Sorry...I hadn't heard about that change. Also, regarding the multiplier: even if it's unlocked, it's still customary to list the multiplier the processor ships with rather than its unlocked status. jgp 16:00, 22 May 2006 (UTC)

GouGou Sentai Boukenger -> GoGo Sentai Boukenger ?

Following some discussion on Talk:GouGou Sentai Boukenger, it seems that this article should be moved. Would you care to comment? Thanks.--Sean Black 00:03, 26 May 2006 (UTC)

Harry Potter AfD

Nai & Mea

Though the I can agree with you on the meaning behind the names(I posted that fact a year ago), you just can't had them as "nigh & mare". And on The Heavenly Saint, it was a comparaion to the Arabic term for angels, which have similarity to the romanji "Enjeru".—Preceding unsigned comment added by Fractyl (talkcontribs)

I'm done, anyway. You can have your translations. I'm not conceding anything--I'm just tired of fighting. Another edit war isn't good for my blood pressure. In fact, I'm going to go and remove that article from my Watchlist... jgp (T|C) 22:42, 16 June 2006 (UTC)
Ok, no hard feelings? In fact, other then the pointless squabble I put you though, you did improve the page and I appreciate that. Fractyl
I've replied (and further apologised) on your talk page (figured I'd mention it here since I accidentally replied to your first comment on my talk page instead of yours). jgp (T|C) 03:18, 22 June 2006 (UTC)

Thanks on Centrino work

Hi Jgp! Thanks for some mm-mm good fact checking on my Centrino edits. Me, but logged in 21:15, 16 June 2006 (UTC)

Re: KingRanger

Funny you should mention that, I had suspected the same thing. He may have also edited as KingConvoy (talk · contribs)-- It was a result of an edit war with him that I settled on the compromise of PR not being in the intro, instead relegating it to the "Distrubtion" section. KingRanger and his ilk are, unfortunately, one of the biggest problems plauging the various Sentai articles -- Wikipedia's open nature combined with their typically brutish tactics leaves it fairly vulnerable. Thanks for the heads up, in any case, and I agree that it's necessary to keep a close watch on these things.--SB | T 03:02, 22 June 2006 (UTC)

Nah, don't worry about it. I'm only vaguely familiar with him as I detest forums and such, so it was helpful regardless :).--SB | T 03:27, 22 June 2006 (UTC)

Abaranger

I sorry, but you're taking "English translations" a little to far. Unless someone, like me, adds a name meaning to go with it, I guess it would be open. But the fact is many of the mecha, Abarenoh, Killeroh, are caled that in English print anyway. Also, "Bakuryuu" means "Blast Dragon".

  • You got be there, I can let that slide. But the mecha combinations still should not be "over-translated".
  • Actally, I'm re-setting up "Name/Puns"(your Bakuryuu explaination is added to it). My plan was to place "Abarenoh's name means 'Riot Union King'" there. That way, for those who wish to know the full-tranlation can look at "names & puns".


Byte Prefixes

We must ally against the Gibibyte! =D --Johnruble 19:13, 2 July 2006 (UTC)

Zyu2

S'okay. I know you didn't mean it. Right now I'm working on inserting what monster comes from Zyu2 so we can get rid of the Zyu2 article forever. Ryulong 07:59, 7 July 2006 (UTC)

Zyu2 now officially listed for deletion. Voting goes here :D. Ryulong 08:21, 7 July 2006 (UTC)

AIV

Heh--I was just adding a sockpuppet/meatpuppet warning about 202.163.208.50 when you made your edit to WP:AIV mentioning his presence, but I got caught by the edit conflict. How's that for coincidence? jgp (T|C) 05:26, 12 July 2006 (UTC)

Well, we are both watching pretty much the same pages when it comes to SS/PR. I've just been watching my contributions and seeing if that guy or another editor are doing harmful things. Ryulong 05:27, 12 July 2006 (UTC)
As it concerns the same topic: I do not see any real vandalism, only changes which could be made in good faith (see here). Have you tried talking to the user(s) who are making the changes? Lectonar 07:21, 13 July 2006 (UTC)
Ryulong and I have posted numerous warnings on their talk pages. We have not received a single reply or explanation. They continue to deliberately insert misspellings in names. jgp (T|C) 07:23, 13 July 2006 (UTC)

Your personal attacks against me

I'm asking you to please stop personally attacking me. [1] Please read the fundamental Wikipedia principle assume good faith, and please read the following rule of conduct civility. Dionyseus 01:53, 14 July 2006 (UTC)

Then please stop your rampant agenda against any news source you do not personally like. Calling one of the most respected technology news sources a blog has no bearing in fact and only proves that nothing you say is to be trusted. Do not attempt to contact me again. And by the way, it's always the trolls, vandals, and POV-pushers who cite WP:AGF, never the legitimate users. jgp (T|C) 01:58, 14 July 2006 (UTC)
By the way, you won't have to worry about me getting involved with you anymore. I'm done with you, I'm done with technology articles, and once I'm done with a large project that I've recently started (which will take a while, but it will be 99% of my contributions, and only the small minority interested in Super Sentai will care), I'll be done with Wikipedia. jgp (T|C) 02:26, 14 July 2006 (UTC)
