Hi LM2000, I hope you are well. Why did you revert my ' External Links ' on Seth Rollins page ?

LM2000 I understand the guidelines. I am only editing to show 'Official' Social Media sites ... Sure this is ok ?

Edit warring?[edit]

I wasn't edit warring, sir. I am a pending changes reviewer, and I declined the revision because there is no way we should be calling Donald Trump a fascist. It's a POV to say the least. I'm not a supporter of Trump, but I know about NPOV guidelines, and I never write anything biased on here. Saying I will be blocked and that I am disruptive is odd, as I have only reverted one edit on that page, just now, because I know it doesn't adhere to NPOV. Not edit warring at all. Ches (talk) 21:26, 30 January 2016 (UTC)

Shoot, sorry, just saw your explanation! Don't worry, sorry if I seemed uncivil. Ches (talk) 21:28, 30 January 2016 (UTC)

Edit summaries[edit]

Hi, LM2000,
Edit summaries are used to describe the type of edit you are making, identifying the section of the page you edited or mentioning a source you might be supplying. They should not be used for conversation or to communicate to other editors. Please discuss the editing of the article on the article talk page where more editors can be drawn into a discussion and it incorporates more than two editors. Thank you. Liz Read! Talk! 22:41, 6 February 2016 (UTC)

Notice seems to have been sent to all involved in conflict. While phrased as a question, I noted I removed dubious and/or unreferences sections in my one edit summary on that article today. In the scheme of things, looking at the article history does read like a conversation due to lengthy edit summaries though.LM2000 (talk) 22:48, 6 February 2016 (UTC)

So what do think is wrong?? check the definition.... why do you get to control the information??Tilleyman (talk) 09:29, 10 February 2016 (UTC)

again I ask who Tilleyman (talk) 09:32, 10 February 2016 (UTC)are you to make these judgements and decisions??

I never said he was dead.....where did I refer to him as dead??? Is that your sad argument for why you control the information on a public site???

User "TheBellaTwins1445" = wars of edits and vandalism[edit]

Hey, this is the first time I come to complain of a user, but TheBellaTwins1445 (which has already received warnings for her conduct) is creating wars of edits and vandalism.

She reverses any other edit from other user, as if it were the owner of the professional wrestlers' pages, but especially now Lana and Summer Rae. It adds weekly information (which is prohibited), and are irrelevant information. She tries to increase the page with flood by adding irrelevant content to make the page bigger.

This is getting boring, as I said, she already has a warning for bad conduct. I hope something is done.

You serious? Barrett was in the company for 6 years. Why shouldn't the fact he departed the company not be included in one of the subsection headers? Rusted AutoParts 21:51, 7 May 2016 (UTC)

I don't think length of tenure is a factor in a notable departure. What HHH Pedrigree was saying is that for "departure" to be included in a header it should be a notable event. Chyna worked for the company only a few years, yet her departure was frequently discussed years afterward. Hornswoggle worked there for 10 years, he was just one of many people released for spring cleaning. Barrett was another one in that group.LM2000 (talk) 22:02, 7 May 2016 (UTC)
As far as I remember, the project discussed it. We include depature when it's a notable depature. For example, Del Rio racial jokes or CM Punk. Barrett was just... "you're fired", nothing more.--HHH Pedrigree (talk) 22:25, 7 May 2016 (UTC)

Letting you know now[edit]

I do not appreciate your trolling behavior. It's clear you are trying to get a rise out of me with your bad faith "filing" and your refusal to participate after blatantly misrepresenting a talk page section.

You're welcome to apologize and start acting in good faith of course, and if so I'll be happy enough to work with you. But I'm not going to sit idly by and watch people engage in deliberate damage to wikipedia. Prostetnic Vogon Jeltz (talk) 07:19, 15 May 2016 (UTC)

"Trolling behavior"? LM2000, is one of the better editors I've come across. Also, assuming you're right, and telling people what to do, won't fly around here. CrashUnderride 14:14, 15 May 2016 (UTC)
If he was truly one of the "better editors", he could have done many, many things instead of resorting to harassment, threats and intimidation tactics. In fact, I've been doing most of them - working on the talk page, now creating an RfC for the content question - whereas he hasn't done one thing to show any good faith. Prostetnic Vogon Jeltz (talk) 15:33, 15 May 2016 (UTC)
Nor have you. You come here trying to tell him what to do, when that's not how it works. Besides, reasons were explained, you violated 3RR, etc. YOU screwed up, grow up, move on. CrashUnderride 18:53, 15 May 2016 (UTC)
Not to mention, you acting like a child during the Trump discussion...why am I not surprised, acting like Trump....a baby. Yeah, typical. But anyway, when you violate WP:3RR and someone reports you, it's not bad faith. It's reporting someone who violated the rules. I know for a fact, I was blocked for doing just that years ago. So as I said, grow up. CrashUnderride 18:57, 15 May 2016 (UTC)

Stephanie McMahon[edit]

What needs to be done to get Stephanie McMahon semi protection done? It's been vandalized 3 or 4 times in the last 24 hrs alone. I've reverted some but I don't wanna get hit with a 3RR warning. Chris "WarMachineWildThing" (talk) 15:30, 10 June 2016 (UTC)

@WarMachineWildThing:, I requested it to be protected at Wikipedia:Requests for page protection.

Got it Chris "WarMachineWildThing" (talk) 21:13, 10 June 2016 (UTC)

Can you take a look at Stephanie McMahon edit history. I see an edit war brewing. Chris "WarMachineWildThing" (talk) 21:52, 12 June 2016 (UTC)

I've dealt with that user before and will keep an eye on it. They've been blocked for edit warring in the past.

Thanks,I looked at others that had siblings listed under family so I saw no reason for Shane to be removed from it. Chris "WarMachineWildThing" (talk) 02:01, 14 June 2016 (UTC)


I saw what you posted, when I started on here I was directed to that by an admin. I have remained neutral and I am not paid for anything. I do the website for free. Just wanted to make sure you knew that and that I knew about the COI and saw what you posted. I have removed myself from the other conversation as it is getting no where and the hostility is getting ridiculous. Chris "WarMachineWildThing" (talk) 01:06, 12 June 2016 (UTC)

@WarMachineWildThing: Please don't take my advice as a personal attack. You've lent a good hand here and there is no blanket ban on COI editing but as the policy states, but it must be done carefully. You're not a WP:SPA and I previously defended you from sock puppetry claims, these are typically the biggest issues with COI users. Will clarified that he does not want to see you blocked in his response to us, I don't want to see you blocked either. I did not know that you had been linked to WP:COI before, I linked it so that you would have a heads up in case you had not seen that before.LM2000 (talk) 01:13, 12 June 2016 (UTC)

Oh god no I don't take what you said like that at all, you have defended me when I was accused of being a sock of someone else. I honestly try to follow your example when I am editing on here. I was just letting you know when i first joined the first thing I did was contacted an admin about who I was and I was told how I should handle things. They showed me the COI and I have done pretty well with it I think. I mostly just remove the vandalism that is put there and I did add his college football history as it was not on there. I try to stay away from his page unless it is vandalized because I enjoy working on the other articles whether they are wrestling or TV ones. I have no ill will towards you and If my comments above came off that way I apologize, I just wanted you to know I had seen it and was aware of it. As for the other conversation its getting nowhere and my opinion on it is there is no reason for any of that stuff to be there. Im not here to argue with people Im here to help. Chris "WarMachineWildThing" (talk) 01:30, 12 June 2016 (UTC)

Thanks WarMachine. You're a quick learner and have already lent a good hand on several articles. You'll come across a lot of drama on this encyclopedia, don't let it get to you.LM2000 (talk) 01:50, 12 June 2016 (UTC)

Wiki troll[edit]

Didnt you say you had run ins with the wiki troll?? Chris "WarMachineWildThing" (talk) 00:50, 16 June 2016 (UTC)

Yes, I've dealt with him a couple of times in the past.LM2000 (talk) 04:06, 16 June 2016 (UTC)

OK so what kinda steps were used to prove his socks? I have a user who I think is a sock but I'm not sure how to prove it. Recently created account and most of their edits are reverts, what threw up a flag was how much they are like a seasoned editor and have just recently created an account. Not saying it's troll or not but I'm 80% sure it's a sock of a blocked user after they targeted one specific users posts in one day.Already took it to an admin and because of a loop hole so to speak they are off the hook for now. 90% of everything they have done is revert then issue warnings to the users but some of the warnings aren't warranted for what I'm seeing,I figured you had dealings with troll in the past you might have tips on what to really look for. Chris "WarMachineWildThing" (talk) 04:28, 16 June 2016 (UTC)

You either need to report two or more users who are engaging in similar behavior or a current account that is being used for block evasion to WP:SPI. I think you would need to know what blocked user is using a new account to evade in order to file a report, checkusers don't like fishing expeditions. If you don't know what account is the sockmaster, you can report other behavioral problems to WP:ANI.LM2000 (talk) 05:17, 16 June 2016 (UTC)

So I made my feelings known to an admin and explained the situation,the admin agreed that they were clearly a seasoned user but there wasn't enough proof of anything, then the user in question went on this ramble on the same admin talk page about how they were gonna report me for stalking. Funny thing is after I made my feelings known that i believed they were a user trying to avoid block and were targeting another user they stopped editing. Chris "WarMachineWildThing" (talk) 03:11, 21 June 2016 (UTC)

Article for deletion[edit]

I could use your input on this matter View AfD Chris "WarMachineWildThing" (talk) 06:23, 23 June 2016 (UTC)

I voted delete since he's not notable and the article has previously been delete before. I think the other people voted keep because of your wording, if he was notable in 2011 then he would have been able to keep an article now, see WP:NTEMP. I don't think the was notable then and I don't think he is notable now, so he just all around fails WP:GNG.LM2000 (talk) 06:28, 23 June 2016 (UTC)

Gotcha, should there be others made aware of this? Also the IP is a little odd seeing as they have edited nothing until the deletion was started and it's only been that article. Chris "WarMachineWildThing" (talk) 06:37, 23 June 2016 (UTC)

I found Template:Spa and used that to make a note about the IP. The registered user is new but has made too many diverse edits for the warning.LM2000 (talk) 06:58, 23 June 2016 (UTC)

check this out[edit]

So check this out I just reported user Danratedrko cause he has been warned Numerous times on his talk page by myself and others in the past month. Yet continues to remove content he doesn't like with no real reason to remove, personally attacks users who change or revert his removals, and is now edit Waring with me. Judging from his contribution history he has been attacking users all aver the place for months. I cant change anything back he has screwed up on Wrestlemania 32 now cause Im on my 2nd revert.

Admin it was reported to

Chris "WarMachineWildThing" (talk) 21:57, 24 June 2016 (UTC)

Glad to see it got taken care of. If he has more than four warnings you can also take it to WP:ANV if the admin you take it to doesn't respond fast enough.LM2000 (talk) 00:33, 26 June 2016 (UTC)

One admin locked down WM32 for 3 days and then warned us both, not sure what I did but whatever, then the admin I first reported him to blocked him for a week.So it's over for now I guess. I'll be off here for awhile need to decompress from some of this crap. Chris "WarMachineWildThing" (talk) 02:04, 26 June 2016 (UTC)

@WarMachineWildThing: Thanks for cleaning up my user page.LM2000 (talk) 01:01, 15 July 2016 (UTC)

You wanna weigh in on this, same guy that got the Mr.Mcmahon stuff started is now changing Carlito's name to Carlito Caribbean Cool.

I was going to take him to WP:ANI over the personal attacks but the admin warned him. His edits have always had these problems.LM2000 (talk) 16:33, 15 July 2016 (UTC)

May have to ani him anyways over his attitude and not willing to work with people. He just isn't getting it. He's still mad over the Mr. Mcmahon deal.Chris "WarMachineWildThing" (talk) 16:34, 15 July 2016 (UTC)

List of WWE Intercontinental Champions[edit]

That discussion was ongoing for a long time. However, everyone agreed(consensus, see?), that

a)There was at least one WP:RS stating that Holly was Intercontinental Champion.

b)There was sufficient(and WP:RS) proof that WWE had, at least at tone time, recognised Holly as a former Intercontinental Champion.

It was thus decided, by consensus, to list Holly as having had an unofficial reign. And to not include Holly's reign in the "List of combined reigns". And to explicitly state that the WWE do not recognise Holly as a former Intercontinental Champion now. (but mention that they used to.) And Holly's reign would then be greyed.

The article then remained that way, as per consensus, until some jerk called User:Shinkazamaturi blanked Holly without mentioning why on the discussion page. And that same User:Shinkazamaturi has subsequently been blocked for disruptive editing. (talk) 05:51, 21 July 2016 (UTC)

We had this discussion last year and consensus leaned against inclusion, though discussion really died before anything conclusive came of it.

So since the draft everyone had been adding which brand everyone has been drafted to on their articles.

As LM said It was already discussed with the last brand split to add them, You are the only editor who keeps removing it from the articles because you think it isn't important but it is to the less informed fan or a new fan who is using Wikipedia for information.

Side note[edit]

Is it confirmed that the Social Outcasts are no more? I mean I understand the assumption and I know Bo and Axel went to Raw and Slater is a "Free Agent" but does that mean they are disbanding them?? I'm really flipping confused and there seems to be a lot of back and forth on the article about it. Chris "WarMachineWildThing" (talk) 21:44, 21 July 2016 (UTC)

Your opinion.....[edit]

As an editor who I know will tell me if I'm wrong could you give your opinion on the edits starting with this one When they add this hidden section it removes the Regins bracket from the article, I went to their talk page and asked them to go to the article talk page and get a consensus but they deleted my message. So I would like your opinion on this and if I am wrong. I also noticed this user tried to protect his own talk page himself. Chris "WarMachineWildThing" (talk) 04:48, 12 August 2016 (UTC)

There should be no debate that this should be removed per WP:CRYSTAL. I'm not sure why they're edit warring over the hidden note, personally I agree with you and don't see the use in it.

I didn't think I was wrong but I wanted to make sure. Like I said I told them to take it to the talk page but they deleted my message.

No problem, you're lending a great hand here. Looks like Oknazevad reverted them before you did,[1] if they revert again I'll warn them for edit warring.LM2000 (talk) 05:16, 12 August 2016 (UTC)
Yeah I saw that after I posted to him about it too to get his take but haven't heard from him. He's helped me with stuff in the past as well.

Gone Indefinitely[edit]

I am going to be gone from Wikipedia Indefinitely effective 8/16/16. I can no longer deal with OWNISH behavior that nothing is done about on articles, the double standards when it comes to sources or dead links on articles and then being told your edit warring when your doing nothing but trying to update references.

I know the feeling about the OWNISH behavior. Maning954 keeps editing David Carr (American football) like they own it, it's pathetic. Ugh. And Chris, I hate to see you go bro. CrashUnderride 04:38, 19 August 2016 (UTC)

Crash see above your comment Chris "WarMachineWildThing" (talk) 04:46, 19 August 2016 (UTC)

It's good to take a break once in awhile when things get heated, glad to see you're not going away. Owing and battleground behavior is probably the worst thing about this site.

Tag teams[edit]

Hey there. Thank you so much for your support on the tag team deletions. It seems as it has been an ongoing problem, with teams from Y2AJ to Jeri-KO, there will be many fans willing to try and fight to keep up an article without knowing Wikipedia's notability criteria. Thank you so much again and I hope to see you around longer! Sekyaw (talk) 04:19, 23 August 2016 (UTC)

Why in the world......[edit]

Why in the world was Naomi (wrestler) moved to Naomi Knight without a consensus?? One person wants it moved so we move it??Chris "WarMachineWildThing" (talk) 07:26, 23 August 2016 (UTC)

I think @BrownHairedGirl: made a mistake and did not see the previous discussion on Talk:Cameron (wrestler) where we decided to move both articles there. I have started a new RM. There's another ongoing discussion on Talk:Cameron (wrestler) to move back to Cameron Lynn, I've voiced opposition there.LM2000 (talk) 07:49, 23 August 2016 (UTC)

Tag Titles bring insanity[edit]

Omg Smackdown Tag Titles were created tonight, along with Smackdown Women's title. Anyways I kid you not the page has been moved 3 times [1], [2] , and [3]. No consensus for any of the moves, they just took a notion and started move warring it. All with in less than an hour if I'm not mistaken. This brand split and all these titles are making people insane. Chris "WarMachineWildThing" (talk) 02:35, 24 August 2016 (UTC)

Been moved four times. CrashUnderride 02:44, 24 August 2016 (UTC)
Crash your not helping lol I'm kidding. I must missed the 4th. Chris "WarMachineWildThing" (talk) 02:46, 24 August 2016 (UTC)
That's my job. :D CrashUnderride 03:04, 24 August 2016 (UTC)

So what is the name of the championship, is it WWE SmackDown Tag Team Championship or just SmackDown Tag Team Championship? The edit summaries for moving it to WWE SmackDown Tag Team Championship say it's a WWE title so WWE has to be in the name. They must've already forgotten World Tag Team Championship (WWE) and World Heavyweight Championship (WWE). I haven't seen anything from that includes WWE in the title name, but they don't include it for the IC or US championships either.LM2000 (talk) 03:39, 24 August 2016 (UTC)

I watched SmackDown and I don't have a damn clue. Also, is it SmackDown (still) or SmackDown Live? Like the SmackDown brand or Smackdown Live brand? CrashUnderride 03:41, 24 August 2016 (UTC)

They said Smackdown Tag and Smackdown Women's, no WWE on SmackDown. Both have been moved to include WWE Chris "WarMachineWildThing" (talk) 03:47, 24 August 2016 (UTC)

They're promoting the show as SmackDown Live these days, sort of like when they promoted Raw as Raw Supershow. It's probably worth bringing up on WT:PW, but in my opinion we can just call it SmackDown when writing about it on other articles. Pretty sure the brand is still just called SmackDown but it's hard to keep track.LM2000 (talk) 04:27, 24 August 2016 (UTC)
The brand is "SmackDown", the show is SmackDown Live. As for the titles, ugh. On one hand, the announcers explicitly didn't use the WWE prefix with them tonight (and it was the top-notch Mauro Ronalo, not the gaff-prone Michael Cole). On the other hand they still have some pretty large WWE logos (or are some pretty large WWE logos for the SD Women's title), and the page calls them "WWE SmackDown" titles. They're brand new; we don't have to get it perfect right away. There is WP:NODEADLINE. Hell, for all we know, despite being the better show, six months from now, if ratings don't rise enough, USA might just cancel SmackDown outright, ending the brand extension, and all of this will be pointless except as historical coverage. It's not like anyone predicted the return of the brand extension 6 months ago. oknazevad (talk) 04:40, 24 August 2016 (UTC)
Just a little comment. If USA were to cancel SmackDown Live (which I highly doubt they would), WWE would just get on with another network for SmackDown. --JDC808 20:36, 2 September 2016 (UTC)
WWE would probably put SmackDown on the WWE Network until they could sign another cable deal.LM2000 (talk) 20:53, 2 September 2016 (UTC)

Charlotte Queen[edit]

While I'm thinking about it you and Crash might wanna check this out, Ranze is at it again [here] TheBellaTwins1445 have their faults but this time they were right to remove.Chris "WarMachineWildThing" (talk) 04:13, 24 August 2016 (UTC)

I'm so sick and tired of Ranze. Can we get them blocked for disruptive editting, again? Never been blocked for it, I don't think. But still remains, they have been. CrashUnderride 04:06, 24 August 2016 (UTC)
@Oknazevad: proposed a topic ban on pro wrestling articles awhile back when Ranze repeatedly started threads where he claimed WHC title history became WWE World Title history. Ranze hasn't tried to start that again since but it's not like him to WP:DROPTHESTICK, he has also made redirects for names used only once before too. This will end up at WP:ANI at some point but I'd like to hear if ‎Oknazevad thinks we have a strong enough case to get a topic ban right now.LM2000 (talk) 04:27, 24 August 2016 (UTC)
Yeah, I dealt with him on the Iron man of the WWE one as well as the Radical Mongoose issue. I'm tempted to say "I DEMAND A TOPIC BAN FOR RANZE!!!" lol CrashUnderride 04:34, 24 August 2016 (UTC)
I don't know if we have enough for one, to be honest. He's certainly wornout my patience with him, and many others as well, obviously. Obstinate fool who needs to get smacked with a clue bat, but whatever. Frankly, I think he should just leave anyway. Look at his actions regarding the articles about that rapist Brock Turner, and judge him for yourself. oknazevad (talk) 04:50, 24 August 2016 (UTC)
I agree. If he brings up the world title dispute again I'll take it to ANI but I'm concerned that if we go there now it will be closed without action and if we try to bring it up again later it would reflect poorly on us. Ranze usually knows the lines and where not to cross, which is how he has gotten away with his disruptive editing for so long. He has fringe controversial views but WP:GAMEs the system to avoid getting indeffed.LM2000 (talk) 05:00, 24 August 2016 (UTC)
Anyway, I requested move protection for the tag title article. I agree that over time things should fall into place correctly. Warring over moves just gets in the way of that.LM2000 (talk) 05:00, 24 August 2016 (UTC)
I didn't see what he did with the Brock Turner thing. CrashUnderride 05:46, 24 August 2016 (UTC)
Note: I saw a few edits that seemed okay. But then I went back another 50 and well, I ain't goin' through all them edits, you can give me the diffs, if you want. lol CrashUnderride 05:50, 24 August 2016 (UTC)
See this section of his talk page. This episode actually did briefly see him indefinitely blocked because an admin thought it violated his gender topic ban. After a lengthy back-and-forth, AE disagreed and the fact that Gamaliel, who recently resigned, imposed the ban didn't help.LM2000 (talk) 06:01, 24 August 2016 (UTC)

Lmfao He's not dropping the mic on the Charlotte Queen deal is he? My big thing with Ranze is he wormed it so he could get Naomi moved when clearly there would be opposition, then tried to do it with Cameron but got caught. Chris "WarMachineWildThing" (talk) 06:25, 24 August 2016 (UTC)

It was the same way on the world title dispute, this could go on for awhile. Next he'll dump even more sources into that talk page that don't say what he thinks they say and will tell us we're wrong.LM2000 (talk) 07:00, 24 August 2016 (UTC)
Then he will have to continue to be shot down until he provides something that backs it up Chris "WarMachineWildThing" (talk) 07:04, 24 August 2016 (UTC)

Daniel Holtzclaw[edit]

Thank you for removing the reference to #freetheclaw and the supporters. You are right that is not sourced. I do also wonder about the reference to OKCArtistsforJustice that is in the document twice. What do you think of that?Dlruthenberg (talk) 16:03, 24 August 2016 (UTC)

Keep an eye on.[edit]

We need to keep an eye on MatthewTardiff. He keeps adding that Eric Young has signed with WWE. While, I've heard reports of that, he fails to provide a WP:RS each and every time. He's "source" was PWMania and placed in an edit summary, then he told me on his talk page that "his friend works for the company so he knows he signed". Ugh. CrashUnderride 02:16, 26 August 2016 (UTC)

Crash Underride Unfortunately Eric has signed with them for NXT. It was announced on several sites tonight. P.S. Sign your comments lol Chris "WarMachineWildThing" (talk) 02:14, 26 August 2016 (UTC)

He's blocked now.LM2000 (talk) 05:12, 26 August 2016 (UTC)

You're a great editor Chris, you shouldn't leave over this. Like NeilN said, everyone that's been around awhile edit wars a little bit. You weren't the one that was blocked because you weren't the one causing a scene. Your credibility remains intact.LM2000 (talk) 05:33, 26 August 2016 (UTC)

It's over that IP caused so much havoc, now Oknazevad is pissed at me I'm pretty sure cause I tried to see if he had knowledge of the consensus and the IP started shit with him on his talk page because I posted on it. 6 months down the drain, I did what I knew was right, he was vandalizing that page by removing that off of them I wasn't warring and then got accused of being the very things I fight and made to be a liar and a fool. Chris "WarMachineWildThing" (talk) 06:08, 26 August 2016 (UTC)

oknazevad agreed with you that there was a consensus against the IP, although maybe did not originate on WT:PW. I don't think he, NeilN, Crash, or any editors you interact with regularly will want to see you go away like this. All experienced editors have stories of heated confrontations, I once had an editor try to argue that I was incompetent to the Arbitration Committee. Arbs didn't buy that and nobody worth a damn buys that you are a vandal or a bad editor.LM2000 (talk) 06:26, 26 August 2016 (UTC)
I second, literally everything that LM2000 just said. CrashUnderride 06:46, 26 August 2016 (UTC)

I have proof I was setup and I think the 2 IPs, yes 2 are socks after one of their edits back in may [here] look at their comment on the removal they did. Chris "WarMachineWildThing" (talk) 06:53, 26 August 2016 (UTC)

Well, I do know for a fact there's been talk lately of whether or not What Culture is a reliable source or not. That came about when I requested speedy deletion of a poorly started WCPW article after one had already been deleted. CrashUnderride 06:56, 26 August 2016 (UTC)

This was a damn set up to get me banned, if that's the case Crash Underride|Crash that pretty much says they are IP socks of someone in the Wrestling Project.Chris "WarMachineWildThing" (talk) 07:05, 26 August 2016 (UTC)

They're clearly the same person, both geolocated to Belgium. There's been a Belgian IP edit warring on The Streak (wrestling) with similar behavior to the Abominable Wikitroll but I don't think it is him because he is usually linked to UK IPs. I'm not sure what their main account is but they're very familiar with wiki policy.LM2000 (talk) 08:41, 26 August 2016 (UTC)

I get setup to look like a fool with OWNISH behavior and edit warring when those edits were Vandalism as far as I'm concerned because of the comments being made with them. They were trying to get me banned Chris "WarMachineWildThing" 08:47, 26 August 2016 (UTC)

Oh probably Chris "WarMachineWildThing" Talk to me 01:51, 2 September 2016 (UTC)
If this set of redirects (Madame and Freaks specifically) are deleted I'll give him one last warning before I take it to WP:ANI. Admins are more likely to take action if the user ignores warnings repeatedly. When I took Shinkazamaturi to ANI last month he almost got indeffed because he kept adding what the announcers said without a source and was warned repeatedly for years. Ranze usually has sources (he didn't during the Women's Championship discussion from the other day though), but their edits are otherwise very similar.LM2000 (talk) 01:52, 2 September 2016 (UTC)
I love his accusations against you and Crash, that made me chuckle. His whole basis for those 2 redirects are that they are nicknames and he knows it and that's why they should Redirect. But they aren't nicknames which is the issue to begin with, it's like people calling Kane the big red retard back in the day, should we redirect that to Kane now too?? As for the Raw one I for one don't think we need all these redirects. They aren't needed. Chris "WarMachineWildThing" Talk to me 02:01, 2 September 2016 (UTC)
I've been looking through his history and found The Man That Mother Nature Forgot To Make Good-Looking. That's about as close to "big red retard" as I've gotten but it is pretty close. It seems to have been a one-time insult as well and shows Ranze's low regard for BLP. I'll wait until this current discussion closes before I nominate that one.LM2000 (talk) 02:10, 2 September 2016 (UTC)
I think there's a notable difference in severity between "retard" and "forgot to make good-looking". I don't consider myself good-looking, it's not particularly an insult, whereas putting down someone's mental faculties is more severe. Ranze (talk) 04:43, 10 September 2016 (UTC)
Omfg that has to be against BLP Chris "WarMachineWildThing" Talk to me 02:16, 2 September 2016 (UTC)

Warning Will Robinson[edit]

Hello LM2000 You just 'warned' this good faith editor that he was 'warned' multiple times. If you are referring to the 'warnings' that were nothing but a dog pile on of editors who state that Cosby is like 'Hitler' ( and Hitler did 'good')and Cosby's civil rights legacy should be suppressed, then feel free to join that pile. You will note at Cosby bio talk a struggle to get a painfully obvious edit into the article about the Cosby civil rights documentary...eventually common sense prevailed and a good edit was added. This is the same group of editors who are removing the the same civil right RS in the Cosby allegations article. This is wikipedia and all editors are equal, not "Animal Farm' where some are more equal. So please cease with empty threats to fellow good faith editors and make an improvement in the edit instead of suppressing the civil rights legacy of a Living Person.

So as I'm sure you recall I got suckered by an IP last week. Well it's started again and I'm not falling for it this time. I saw nothing wrong with the article or that anything was unsourced as they claimed so I reverted it. They ofcourse reverted me here with a snotty comment then left this on my talk page. Conveniently its the same article, they knew about the last IP issue, and are geo located in Europe too. I didn't revert again as I can tell this is a damn setup again.

WWE has changed the title names[edit]

Just a heads up they changed the names for the titles on They changed the Women's, Tag, IC, and US. They have removed WWE from them and changed Women's to Raw Women's and Tag to Raw Tag. IC is just IC and US is just US. Chris "WarMachineWildThing" Talk to me 01:16, 6 September 2016 (UTC)

I don't think IC and US names have changed, they didn't have "WWE" in their name last week either. I looked back on internet archive, Intercontinental was like that in 2005, both were written that way in 2010, and both (along with tag team and divas) were like that in 2014. It seems pretty obvious that the women and tag belts have changed but I wouldn't change IC and US.LM2000 (talk) 03:20, 6 September 2016 (UTC)

I think their days are numbered. Unlike the other problems we talk about, I think Shinkazamaturi is probably a kid and English isn't their first language.

@LM2000: honestly, I don't think it matters at this point. They're not gonna stop. I don't think they've ever admitted they've a re-direct or edit on an article that wasn't proper. (talk page stalker) CrashUnderride 03:31, 9 September 2016 (UTC)

He did admit Big E Jackson wasn't useful but I was shocked at his defense of Rybotch and Cryback.LM2000 (talk) 03:33, 9 September 2016 (UTC)
I honestly have never heard a mention of either name in spoilers, results or during a show, ever. lol. (talk page stalker) CrashUnderride 03:38, 9 September 2016 (UTC)

I see one way for this to end unfortunately. Chris "WarMachineWildThing" Talk to me 04:52, 9 September 2016 (UTC)

LM I actually found Big E Jackson to be helpful because I actually got them mixed up once, which was why I created it. I had figured at the time that others might make a similar mistake due to both being "Big X" characters with bisyllabic surnames ending in -on. I speculated that if a guy who loves Big E and Big Zeke as much as me could make that mistake, that less loving fans could also make that mistake. For that reason I still think it's a useful redirect for someone who begins typing names into the search bar.

So it's not so much that it's not useful, just that you've caused so much trouble I'd rather focus on the ones where I can make a better argument to you about it's usefulness.

As for reason 8, I do not believe that applies to most of the things you have nominated. These things are not "very obscure". Some of them aren't even obscure. I don't see how you could be surprised at my arguing Cryback/Rybotch is not VO because they are commonly-used monikers on the internet by his critics, which you can observe by doing a basic search.

Crash, you must have missed the episode where Chris Jericho used it. Here go you: Could've sworn I posted it before, but maybe it was to someone else? I don't hold this against you, I've gone for periods of not watching WWE as well. Jericho's used #cryback 1 July 2013 on Twitter too: and you can see the hashtag got a lot of consistent activity for the following 3 years. Ranze (talk) 05:07, 9 September 2016 (UTC)

Ranze has been creating some redirects, as well as adding obviously contentious nicknames back to Adrian Neville and Adam Rose. I don't think we should revert them or put the redirects up for deletion until the WP:ANI issue is concluded.LM2000 (talk) 07:06, 9 September 2016 (UTC)
What obviously contentious nickname are you accusing me of restoring to Rose's page? Legitimately confused here. Also you did nominate the "man mother nature forgot" ones for Neville so I'm not sure what you mean by waiting. Ranze (talk) 08:40, 10 September 2016 (UTC)
Really? One insult constitutes being worthy of a re-direct?!?!? Well, why not have Wendy's re-direct to Heath Slater? After all in 2010 John Cena plastered his face on the Wendy's logo making fun of him when he was in The Nexus, or right it wasn't noteworthy, and it wasn't an official nickname. These must stop. This is ridiculous. (talk page stalker) CrashUnderride 11:06, 9 September 2016 (UTC)
I'm not sure where you get the concept of "official nickname". I redirect unique nicks. Obviously stuff referring to existing things like Fruity Pebbles or Wendy would not make sense to redirect. A redirect is something I do when something only or primarily refers to the place I directed it to. That was the case in MMNF2MGL because nobody else has been called that and it is a permutation of his TMGF nick. Ranze (talk) 08:40, 10 September 2016 (UTC)

soz abot you now what hope you can forgive me and hope you are well bye — Preceding unsigned comment added by Baddiey (talkcontribs) 00:57, 13 September 2016 (UTC)

The Usos[edit]

Hey, thanks for helping out on the notice board. The problem isn't with what the user has been doing, it's how he's doing it. The Usos were clearly heels in early 2011, yet, according to him, the last time they were heels was in 2010. He continues to change it to 2010, when he's clearly wrong. I've tried to explain this to him, but unfortunately, he hasn't responded. It's getting annoying because while I'm trying to keep the article truthful, he's making it not, and I'm the only one that seems to notice or care that he's doing this on that specific page. I don't want him to be blocked, it just want help in getting him to stop, because he continuously does it.Dohvahkiin (talk) 04:47, 13 September 2016 (UTC)

@Dohvahkiin: Yes, they're incompetent. Like I said, I don't think they should be doing it at all, but if it's to be done it should be done right, not like what they've done on The Usos or Paige.LM2000 (talk) 05:19, 13 September 2016 (UTC)
