GIen's RfA: Thank you![edit]

Glen thankyou.gif
KnowledgeOfSelf for your Support!
I I feel truly humbled & honored by your support in my RfA, which closed at 90 / 5 / 0. Thank you! If you need me for anything, just say the word. For now however, just like Mr Potter here:
My mop & I shall thwart all evil :)
IThank you once again my friend. GIen


Mr. Self, well what can I say, well what can I say that we havent already babbled about on IRC! :) Thank you so so much, your support, especially, was appreciated. Look forward to working with you ;) - GIen 05:48, 25 August 2006 (UTC)

You are quite welcome GIen, now you can empty AIV and I can sit back and relax! ;) KOS | talk 11:33, 25 August 2006 (UTC)

Back into the fray...?[edit]

Hi, KOS! Been working some much smaller wikis as of late; this is just getting crazy with vandals. I'm adminning a few smaller projects like this one. Drop me an e-mail when you have a moment. Been doing a bit of anonymous RC, there are some real freaks and weirdos out there. Anyway, take care. You'll know who this is when you click the link. 01:46, 26 August 2006 (UTC)

Hey!! Yes I wrote you an email, it appears it was lost, how have you been? Really great that you stopped by! KOS | talk 01:56, 26 August 2006 (UTC)
  • Doin' groovy, thanks. And, thanks for swinging by the other wiki. When I saw the thrusting and parrying you were doing to the vandals over on the blocked users page, I couldn't help but smile. This place really gets under your skin and stays there. Try sending another e-mail if possible. If you don't hear from me right away, leave word at the other site. As far as returning here, I've thought of it, played around doing the RC patrolling...but I'm not sure I want the stress. If I do, it'll be strictly quiet editing. Done lots of work on the other wikis that could be moved here. 02:36, 26 August 2006 (UTC)


Good to see you back ;) pschemp | talk 08:42, 26 August 2006 (UTC)

Question regarding a user[edit]

Apparently, UJonk has been creating User:--- pages (see his contributions) and all I see on them is that they have been indefinitely blocked.

I'm just wondering if these are real users, and why it says UJonk has created all of them.

Can you please clear this issue up? I'm a bit confused here.

--Nishkid64 23:30, 26 August 2006 (UTC)

He has not been creating the users, but just tagging usernames that have alrady been blocked with {{indefblock}}. KOS | talk 23:38, 26 August 2006 (UTC)
Oh okay. Thanks, that clears things up. --  Nishkid64  Talk  19:51, 28 August 2006 (UTC)


/me looks above
ooh shinies :D
I tinkered with that pic but I'll let the experts decide which tag it eventually needs. --Alf melmac 00:59, 27 August 2006 (UTC)

Old warnings[edit]

Hi - I deliberately blanked the warnings at User talk: They were all old and no longer relevant. I believe leaving old warnings dilutes the message and makes it harder for the anon to find the latest message. I would not delete warnings given in the last few days but warnings back to November 2005 just make it harder to dind the latest - the Nov 2005 may not refer tot he same computer user. I discussed this at Wikipedia talk:Removing warnings poll#Clean-up of IP talk pages and got the response Antique IP talk pages are speedy deletion candidates. Whenever I run into one with only old warnings when I'm about to warn someone, I delete it before adding a new warning. I understand that not everyone who does RC patrol has admin powers, but I don't see the problem with anyone blanking the page before adding new warnings (or even without adding new warnings). JYolkowski Regsards--Arktos talk 02:29, 29 August 2006 (UTC)

Yes hello, I reverted because of this diff, which was done by the anon and not you. Vandals should not remove warnings from their talk pages, and this is what this one did. I'm fine with you blanking talk pages and what not, but I'd like to say I do not appreciate your use of the rollback feature to revert me. That is not what that tool is for. Cheers KOS | talk 02:35, 29 August 2006 (UTC)

Blocked username[edit]

Hello. I see that you block my username of the folowing reason:

Autoblocked because your IP address has been recently used by "W1N570N5M17H". 

It is also written there that my ip is

It must be a mistake. First of all I DO NOT USE this IP(and never used it before) My IP is the last 5 mounth). Secondly - you can check the contributions assumed to my username and ip and see that there are no spam or any actions kinda of that. Thank you Sasha l 12:14, 29 August 2006 (UTC)

I've removed the autoblock. Should be able to edit now. KOS | talk 13:59, 29 August 2006 (UTC)


WikiChevrons.png You are enlisted
I hear by place this award for your
thankless vandal fighting and place
you as a honorary member of the
wikipedia vandal-fightng army.
Thank you very much! KOS | talk 15:27, 29 August 2006 (UTC)
Whee! More awards! Pile them on! (I can't find one now that wouldn't be somewhat redundant with the ones you've already been given.) :| —$ΡЯΙNGεrαgђ (-¢|ε|Ŀ|T|-) 14:50, 29 August 2006 (UTC)
Redundancy is not always a bad thing. :P KOS | talk 15:27, 29 August 2006 (UTC)
No, not always. :D —$ΡЯΙNGεrαgђ (-¢|ε|Ŀ|T|-) 15:28, 29 August 2006 (UTC)

Any "your mother" term in usernames are blocked[edit]

Why do you think usernames with the term "your mother" (or similar) will be blocked on sight? Thanks. Bigtop 19:23, 30 August 2006 (UTC)

Because they have the potential to offend people. Do you think they shouldn't? KOS | talk 19:24, 30 August 2006 (UTC)
If I may add: "Names that are recognised as slurs or insults", this statement comes straight off the Wikipedia:Username policy page. Now the expression Your mom is an insult towards ones mother. Besides the only name I've blocked recently that I can recall is this one which also uses the "" which could also have been blocked with the {{UsernameBlockedEmail}} because of the potential attracting spammers. Hopes that will clear this up further for you. KOS | talk 19:46, 30 August 2006 (UTC)


Thanks for reverting vandalism on my user page again! Molerat 20:18, 30 August 2006 (UTC)


Yo KOS, block me for 10 days. Or I'll go on a vandalism spree. --Dangherous 19:36, 31 August 2006 (UTC)

About "How Do You Do"[edit]

Sorry for that, I arranged the artice now. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)

No worry, enjoy editing. KOS | talk 03:08, 2 September 2006 (UTC)

Hello? are you reading?[edit]

I'm not vadalzing the FPC talk page. I created an archive!!!!!!!!!!! 04:47, 2 September 2006 (UTC)

Hello, I noticed that you created on after the fact. I reverted myself. You should use an edit summary to explain your actions. That will help avoid mistakes such as these. KOS | talk 04:49, 2 September 2006 (UTC)

Gemstone page[edit]

Don't worry about the deletion... I've significantly updated and expanded the article on Gemstone IV. 04:52, 2 September 2006 (UTC)Jordan Bowen

Good to know, happy editing! KOS | talk 04:53, 2 September 2006 (UTC)


Thanks for the revert of my userpage. Much appreciated, Gwernol 12:20, 3 September 2006 (UTC)

You are quite welcome. KOS | talk 18:31, 3 September 2006 (UTC)
Thanks from me too. DVD+ R/W 21:21, 3 September 2006 (UTC)
you are wlecome, it was my pleasure. KOS | talk 22:04, 3 September 2006 (UTC)

Thank you![edit]

Thank you for your assistance with the edits made by on the Rainforest Alliance page... the IP address is registered in San Jose, Costa Rica (one of the three major Rainforest Alliance headquarters) - so these edits are a bit suspicious to me. I am still relatively new to Wikipedia - what is the procedure when dealing with such vandalism? We can't revert these edits forever... Thanks again for your help! Quebecois1983 18:24, 3 September 2006 (UTC)

When a page is being vandalized the editor who is making the edits are usually warned with templates. See a list at Wikipedia:Template_messages/User_talk_namespace#Grid_of_warnings. If after a certain amount of edits the user does not stop they are usually blocked, for a period of time deemed appropriate by the blocking admin. See Wikipedia:Vandalism as well. Thanks for the message. Happy editing. KOS | talk 18:31, 3 September 2006 (UTC)

Long-Overdue RfA Thanks from Alphachimp[edit]

Thanks for your support in my not-so-recent RfA, which was successful with a an overwhelmingly flattering and deeply humbling total of 138/2/2 (putting me #10 on the RfA WP:100). I guess infinite monkey theorem has been officially proven. Chimps really can get somewhere on Wikipedia.

With new buttons come great responsibility, and I'll try my best to live up to your expectations. If you need assistance with something, don't hesitate to swing by my talk page or email me (trust me, I do respond :)). The same goes for any complaints or comments in regard to my administrative actions. Remember, I'm here for you.

(Thanks go to Blnguyen for the incredible photo to the right.) alphaChimp laudare 01:17, 4 September 2006 (UTC)

Done, but please use {{Db-author}}, next time. KOS | talk 02:30, 4 September 2006 (UTC)

Glad to BE back.[edit]

Too many nice folks here. Those other wikis are kinda lonely. Thanks for the warm welcome, SL. --Lucky 6.9 16:22, 5 September 2006 (UTC)


Hi, I've noticed that there are ip user who created new signature. I mean I'm so curious about these two IP. User: and User: Are these IP user really IP? In my opinion, They're good ip users or These two IP are not controlled by Human. Is it true that those IP I've mentioned really IP user? Please, reply in my talk page. Cheers! Daniel's page 02:52, 6 September 2006 (UTC)

Yes they are really editors who edit from their ip address. KOS | talk 02:53, 6 September 2006 (UTC)
Yup. Hello! Tuesday, September 12, 2006, 19:54 (UTC)

Re: break[edit]

Thanks for the message, KOS! Unfortunately, my professional life has become increasingly busy and I am not certain that I will be able to resume editing Wikipedia. I have enjoyed working with you and the other editors. — Knowledge Seeker 04:46, 6 September 2006 (UTC)

I'm truly sorry to hear that, you are one of the best wikipedians I've ever interacted with. I do hope you will be back with us soon! KOS | talk 04:49, 6 September 2006 (UTC)

Oooh, thanks. I haven't had one of those in a looong time. >Radiant< 21:39, 7 September 2006 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Thanks for reverting my talk page. Someone from AOL keeps making this same post on user or talk pages, and I'm going to block them for 15, as you did when I see it happen again. Thanks again, DVD+ R/W 03:39, 10 September 2006 (UTC)

Anytime, just keep on fighting the vandals, and it will be thanks enough for me. KOS | talk 07:02, 10 September 2006 (UTC)


Sorry, I did not vandalize my own talk page I wanted to add deletion in my talk page but I did a mistake, I wrote a deletion instead of delete, anyway, I did candidate my talk page for deletion speedy, and feel free to not leave a spam on my talk page after deletion. Thanks for understanding. Evidental 03:50, 12 September 2006 (UTC)


Thanks for the advice. noted and got it, I do the archives. but if I did a typo in first try don't consider it as a vandalism. I wrote deletion instead of delete and you consider this as vandalism? sorry how to this I should add db-owner within double { and } ? I am affraid to do a typo and again it would be considered as vandalism! :-( Evidental 03:51, 12 September 2006 (UTC)

It was seen as vandalism because your edit blanked a template. Accidents happen, I know but from my point of view it looked as if you removed past warnings from your talk page and then blanked a template. So yes it was seen as vandalism. Also please remember to sign your comments with ~~~~ 4 tildes. KOS | talk 07:30, 10 September 2006 (UTC)

Okay, I did archives, thanks for guide. and sorry I did not know how to sign! and could you tell me how to change my username? should I contact admin for this? Evidental 03:51, 12 September 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for the Vandalism Patrol...Sahaj Marg[edit]

Gee! I have seem this Wikipedia system at work and it's great!! Thanks so much for your "interception". Information will set us free! I can now believe it!! I have been to the Mountain and I have seen the face of G.. NO! just kidding...LOL

I am now a "bigger booster" of Wikipedia...Everyone in my circle (seniors) told me this Encyclopedia would never work!! I now have some evidence that it does and on the "honour" or "anarchically"...LOL I wonder if we can now push for "voting on line and on issues in a "DIRECT DEMOCRACY"??? HMMMM! The revolution has begun....Information is now in the hands of the "masses"...Rise up, Rise up....LOL...



Do you have to be an administrator to put {{Blatantvandal-n}} on talk pages? I decided to be bold and do it here, but I was wondering if I should/shouldn't have done it. (Can you reply on my talk page as well as here?) —$ΡЯΙNGεrαgђ (-¢|ε|Ŀ|T|-) 03:49, 11 September 2006 (UTC)

No that is fine, really the only templates I can think of that you shouldn't use if you are not an admin are the block templates, and the unblock templates. KOS | talk 11:59, 11 September 2006 (UTC)
