I've been blocked and i didn't do anything!

According to this, you're not blocked. Do you see this when you try to edit something? John Reaves (talk) 23:55, 3 March 2007 (UTC)
When i'm editing other pages rather to my talk page. -- JohnnyAlbert10 23:57, 3 March 2007 (UTC)
You may have been autoblocked, we're trying to figure it out right now. John Reaves (talk) 00:02, 4 March 2007 (UTC)

Yep. See the following text (from here for more information:

Clearing an autoblock

Please note that we cannot unblock you at this time because you have not given us the information we need to look into your block. It is very likely that you are not personally blocked. If you are prevented from editing, it may be because you are autoblocked or blocked because of your IP address. Without further details there is nothing further we can do to review your block or lift it. If you are still autoblocked by the time you read this message, please follow these instructions:

  1. If you have a Wikipedia account, please ensure that you are logged in.
    Your account name will be visible in the top right of this page if you are.
    If it isn't, try bypassing your web browser's cache.
  2. Try and edit the Wikipedia:Sandbox by clicking here.
  3. Copy the {{unblock-auto|...}} code generated for you under the "Autoblocked?" section.
  4. Paste the code at the bottom of your user talk page and click save.

If you are not blocked from editing the sandbox then the autoblock on your IP address has already expired and you can resume editing. I hope that this helps. GracenotesT § 00:04, 4 March 2007 (UTC)

I can't edit anything sorry. I tried your steps but i'm still blocked. -- JohnnyAlbert10 00:06, 4 March 2007 (UTC)

Hm. Try going here. You'll find a number after "My ip address:" Check the block log for that IP address, and see if that IP was blocked GracenotesT § 00:25, 4 March 2007 (UTC)
It certainly wasn't your fault that you got blocked. You could try waiting until the IP block expires, but using the above URL, you could see the IP that was blocked, and use {{unblock-auto}} to resolve the problem. GracenotesT § 00:38, 4 March 2007 (UTC)
Sorry i couldn't respond right away i was on a date with a girl. But i know who blocked me, Rschen7754 because my brother was vandalizing wikipedia with another computer in my house and we share the same IP address. Tell him to unblock the IP Address and I'll take care of my brother (User:512theking). -- JohnnyAlbert 22:14, 4 March 2007 (UTC)

image:PA-65 map.svg

Hey. I have put together a rough draft of a map for PA 65. I have made it as small as I can for now, so it may still stall web browsers. 25or6to4 03:09, 6 March 2007 (UTC)

PA 65

I don't drive along PA 65 very often at all. It's probably been 6 months since I've even been on it. --Cngodles 15:01, 6 March 2007 (UTC)
PS: Is there a full template for the "Places I've Been" table? I've got about 32 states on my list and I'd love to put that on my profile. --Cngodles 15:01, 6 March 2007 (UTC)

Improvements to the article

Replied on my talk page.  V60 VTalk · VDemolitions 16:30, 6 March 2007 (UTC)

What am i going to do?

This is the second time my brother (512theking) vandalized my page and i'm blocked for it becuase we share the same IP address. I'm tired of this. -- JohnnyAlbert 15:00, 7 March 2007 (UTC)

If you find yourself suffering collateral damage from blocks, use the {{unblock}} templates as described in the block message. --pgk 20:28, 7 March 2007 (UTC)
You don't understand, my brother will stop at nothing to get out of wikipedia, this will happening again and again and i will keep being blocked. -- JohnnyAlbert 15:31, 7 March 2007 (UTC)
Forget it i was unblocked thanks anyway. -- JohnnyAlbert 15:37, 7 March 2007 (UTC)

Reverting vandalism

I see that this was taken care of...but you don't need a Microsoft Word copy, you can revert instead. Wikipedia:Revert has details. --Rschen7754 (talk - contribs) 23:27, 7 March 2007 (UTC)

I've only been here for a month and already have to deal with vandalism. I'll try Wikipedia:Revert. -- JohnnyAlbert10 Time to talk · My Help 20:34, 7 March 2007 (UTC)

Reversion

No worries. Glad to help. --Mhking 00:00, 9 March 2007 (UTC)

PA 65

I failed it because most of the references are not reliable sources. You need newspaper articles and maps, not personal websites. --NE2 23:12, 9 March 2007 (UTC)

It does have a newspaper article. The northern terminus section of the histroy. Besides i added new references and changed a lot of stuff since you reviewed it. -- JohnnyAlbert10 Time to talk · My Help 18:11, 9 March 2007 (UTC)
Please read Wikipedia:Reliable sources; almost the entire article is referenced to personal websites. I-476 also has some problems of that nature, but less so; I probably would have failed it too. --NE2 23:20, 9 March 2007 (UTC)
Alright. These routes don't have enough refs. -- JohnnyAlbert10 Time to talk · My Help 18:11, 9 March 2007 (UTC)

"Pennsylvania Highways" and "M-plex roads" are personal sites. "History of the Ohio River Boulevard" might be OK, since it cites its sources, but it would be better to use those sources directly. If you live in the Pittsburgh area, visit the central library; they probably have the newspaper on microfilm. --NE2 19:21, 10 March 2007 (UTC)

But they're the only sites that offer complete information about the route, i guess i'll try adding mapquest as a source to replace them both OK?. Oh, what about mapquest? -- JohnnyAlbert 19:23, 10 March 2007 (UTC)

Sources don't need to be websites; newspapers and books are generally better. --NE2 19:27, 10 March 2007 (UTC)
That's the thing, i've been to the library and it doesn't have anything about routes. But if you check one of the refs in the PA 65 article is about a newspaper company. -- JohnnyAlbert 19:28, 10 March 2007 (UTC)
Another thing, you said "Pennsylvania Highways" is not acceptable, it has to be for the length references. Where am I going to get a reference to the length. -- JohnnyAlbert 19:37, 10 March 2007 (UTC)
The article has more problems than that - the entire history section needs better references. You'll have to do some actual research. --NE2 19:58, 10 March 2007 (UTC)
That's it i quit! sorry to bother you for all of this but i guess this route will never become a good article i just can't find more references! -- JohnnyAlbert10 20:00, 10 March 2007 (UTC)

Please read Wikipedia:Attribution#Reliable sources. Specifically, "A self-published source is material that has been published by the author, or whose publisher is a vanity press, a web-hosting service, or other organization that provides little or no editorial oversight." --NE2 01:30, 13 March 2007 (UTC)

You're going to have to do actual research with newspaper archives. --NE2 01:43, 13 March 2007 (UTC)

I'm not sure what a good source for mileage would be, but a trip planner like Mapquest should be good enough. --NE2 01:48, 13 March 2007 (UTC)

Maybe he's right

Maybe 512theking is right the only way that you guys don't suffer from vandalism is if I leave wikipedia. It doesn't matter because my contributions are worthless and this was a faliure. -- JohnnyAlbert10 Time to talk · My Help 20:19, 9 March 2007 (UTC)

I've replied to your message at my Talk page. Please consider staying; we appreciate your contributions, and the vandalism problem can be easily solved, once a CheckUser takes care of the request. --Slowking Man 02:10, 10 March 2007 (UTC)

PA 145

It has exactly the same problems. Where's the source for "In 1946, the southern terminus was moved to U.S. Route 22 (now Tilghman Street). Later in 1959, US 309 had a new alignment south east of Allentown and was removed from the current PA 145 alignment from Tilghman Street to Summit Lawn." and similar statements? --NE2 23:54, 14 March 2007 (UTC)

I don't see enough maps in that directory to be able to pin down the changes to a year. --NE2 00:05, 15 March 2007 (UTC)

GA nom.

Did you make this nomination? (If so, you weren't logged in.) --Flex (talk|contribs) 20:16, 15 March 2007 (UTC)

Autoblocked

I have been mistakenly been autoblocked by anothern of 512theking's plans (posing as Josetineo and King of fools23) to make me leave wikipedia. Could anyone please contact Naconkantari to unblock my Ip address which is 172.163.127.148. Thanks. -- JohnnyAlbert10 Time to talk · My Help 18:31, 17 March 2007 (UTC)

Can you please provide the autoblock message? Naconkantari 22:46, 17 March 2007 (UTC)

You mean this. But i found another IP address thanks anyway i can edit again. -- JohnnyAlbert10 Time to talk · My Help 18:57, 17 March 2007 (UTC)

PA 39

Hey, sure, give it your shot. Most of the history I found was based off maps hosted on PennDOT's website. --myselfalso 02:11, 18 March 2007 (UTC)

Most of them are in the "Current and future projects" section. --myselfalso 14:28, 18 March 2007 (UTC)
Good job with the work done to Pennsylvania Route 39. I didn't know how to use {{cite}} templates

stick with it

Stick with it. Have confidence that everything between your brother and Wikipedia will work out ok. You're a good editor, and if you have any problems let me know and I'll do my best. SWATJester On Belay! 06:33, 19 March 2007 (UTC)

I hope so too, thank you. -- JohnnyAlbert10 Time to talk · My Help 17:16, 19 March 2007 (UTC)

In response to your comment, we can block him, and if you get caught up in the block as well, just put an {{unblock}} tag on your page.As long as he cannot access your account, you should be fine, but you absolutely must not let him access your account. SWATJester On Belay! 01:29, 21 March 2007 (UTC)
That's funny, so we're going to play a little game called block 512theking and JohnnyAlbert10 will be the victim. Oh please I don't need to access your account to ruin you wikipedia life. But this is fun and it's getting funner as long as JohnnyAlbert10 is here you guys can't get rid of me! -- 512theking
You're wasting your time, i'll unblock my self easily and your tries are for nothing. -- JohnnyAlbert10 2:39, 21 March 2007 (UTC)
Ohh little brother, your comments get you into trouble, you want your ass kicked by me tonight, you're only 15 and i'm 17. I can beat you up easily like riping up a teddy bear, but this doesn't have to happen if you leave wikipedia. Hahahahahahahahahahahahah!! -- 512theking
After reading that last comment, I say:take this up with your parents. O_0 to the last guy.Shindo9Hikaru 01:49, 21 March 2007 (UTC) Ps, found your page on rc patrol if you want to know.
OK, but my parents are out of town, I'll fight him. -- JohnnyAlbert10 2:48, 21 March 2007 (UTC)
Good luck to you on that hope you come back alive.:pShindo9Hikaru 01:53, 21 March 2007 (UTC)
Wow, I just found this while rc patrolling and this is an unusual conversation! Anyway you should talk with your parents about this (especially if he does beat you up). :( -- Hdt83 | Talk 01:55, 21 March 2007 (UTC)
My dad always told me when fighting to always aim for their nuts, so they fall clean, so that's what i'll do i'll hit him there. -- JohnnyAlbert10 01:56, 21 March 2007 (UTC)
Hope your brother isn't online now reading this.Shindo9Hikaru 02:02, 21 March 2007 (UTC)
You bet i am, Killing you will be fun and tell your friends to mind their asses.
If you're going to f***ing kill me than do it, kill me b****. -- JohnnyAlbert10 02:04, 21 March 2007 (UTC)

brother

Your brother is indefinitely blocked for violence threats against you. Don't worry about him, if he comes after you, defend yourself. If you get a few good hits on him, he'll stop. In my time working as a bouncer, I've found that people who threaten other people generally don't want to carry out their threats. So just relax and don't worry about it. SWATJester On Belay! 05:08, 21 March 2007 (UTC)

PS: I've temporarily semi-protected your talk page. Your brother will not be able to edit it, but established users will be able to. When you're ready for the protection to end, leave a message on my talk, or go to WP:RFPP and request unprotection. SWATJester On Belay! 05:10, 21 March 2007 (UTC)

I'm sorry I had to use ugly words above. But we fought yesterday and I had a black eye afterwards and we were grounded for the rest of the week, our little sister told our parents. I'll be on wikipedia less time than usual now that I'm grounded. I'm pretty beat up still but so is he. -- JohnnyAlbert10 21:09, 21 March 2007 (UTC)
Yay! You're still alive! Sorry about you being grounded though.Shindo9Hikaru 02:43, 22 March 2007 (UTC)
Thanks, it was coming anyway. At least he got grounded too. -- J-A10 T · C 21:13, 22 March 2007 (UTC)

Blocked

YesY

Your request to be unblocked has been granted for the following reason(s):

Hope it works.

Request handled by: Rschen7754 (talk - contribs) 22:46, 21 March 2007 (UTC)

Please paste the autoblock info. --Rschen7754 (talk - contribs) 22:32, 21 March 2007 (UTC)

In regards to information on Wikipedia:Block, what if we blocked your IP address but set it to "Block only anonymous users" and "Block account creation"? That way, you could still edit but 512theking's vandal capabilities would be limited. --Rschen7754 (talk - contribs) 22:35, 21 March 2007 (UTC)

That might work, if he continues to use names like 512theking# -- JohnnyAlbert10 23:34, 21 March 2007 (UTC)

Autoblocked info

This account or IP address has been blocked from editing. You were blocked by User:CambridgeBayWeather for the following reason (see our blocking policy):

Autoblocked because your IP address was recently used by "User:512theking08". The reason given for 512theking08's block is: "Attavking other users". Your IP address is 172.131.116.119.

Thanks Rschen7754. -- JohnnyAlbert10 23:45, 21 March 2007 (UTC)

IRC

Please join the IRC channel #wikipedia-en-roads-us using the same username here, or an abbreviation such as JA10. Do not reply to this thread. In fact, please make no mention of this, including asking why, and such on Wikipedia. See IRC instructions for help.  V60 VTalk · VDemolitions 23:08, 21 March 2007 (UTC)

Why. Prodego talk 02:35, 22 March 2007 (UTC)
It's something that cannot be mentioned on-wiki, since the vandal reads this and other associated talk pages.  V60 VTalk · VDemolitions 02:38, 22 March 2007 (UTC)
Ok, seems suspicious though. Prodego talk 02:41, 22 March 2007 (UTC)
If you would like to seriously know, please step into an IRC channel (#wikipedia-en).  V60 VTalk · VDemolitions 02:44, 22 March 2007 (UTC)

Re: I'm Stuck

That's because you don't have an IRC client. If you're using Mozilla Firefox, you can get ChatZilla from "Themes & Extensions". Otherwise, think about getting gaim or mIRC.  V60 VTalk · VDemolitions 19:42, 22 March 2007 (UTC)

Why don't you just use e-mail. Much better then IRC. Prodego talk 21:58, 22 March 2007 (UTC)
Both would work for me. -- J-A10 T · C 23:00, 22 March 2007 (UTC)

Blocking issues

After consulting with a CheckUser, it seems you're using AOL, which is the reason your IP address changes so rapidly. Unfortunately, AOL has huge IP address ranges assigned to it, and it assigns these addresses fairly randomly, so we can't do an anonymous-only, no-account-creation rangeblock without blocking a lot of other people. I suggest having your parents e-mail info-en, as I suggested earlier, and also switching ISPs (AOL is a terrible ISP anyway). If you get autoblocked and email me with your IP, I can switch the autoblock to an anon-only block, but that'll only work until your IP changes. I'm really sorry, but there doesn't appear to be anything else we can do. --Slowking Man 23:30, 21 March 2007 (UTC)

Don't worry, he's grounded for fighting me. How embarassing, his little brother (me) kicked his butt. -- J-A10 T · C 0:55, 22 March 2007 (UTC)
