Hi Lady BlahDeBlah[edit]

Coupla things to say to you - 1.Love your username. It's very original (winks) 2.If you ever go to your userpage anymore, you might notice that...um...the userboxes are colliding with the rest. If you just wanna fix that up, cool. - Regeane Silverwolf 04:03, 10 September 2006 (UTC)

Userboxes[edit]

I'm a little suprised you haven't added {{tlu|User:Feureau/UserBox/ubx-5 to your list userbox collection.--[[User:Schwarzm}}|Max]] ( | ) 05:15, 14 January 2006 (UTC)

Hi[edit]

Happy (belated) birthday, Lady BlahDeBlah!- JustPhil 18:32, 26 January 2006 (UTC)


I stole a bunch of your userboxes. >:3 Cheesewizard 23:12, 24 May 2006 (UTC) Well I do have quite the collection...*shame* Lady BlahDeBlah 23:40, 24 May 2006 (UTC)


I got +2 to my Mad Coding skill and made "official" Gaia userboxes. Complete with username space and multiple levels. :3 Go ahead and steal it. XD Cheesewizard 23:59, 1 June 2006 (UTC)

Cave featured on DYK[edit]

Updated DYK query On 12 July, 2006, Did you know? was updated with a fact from the article Porth yr Ogof, which you created. If you know of another interesting fact from a recently created article, then please suggest it on the "Did you know?" talk page.

--Mgm|(talk) 07:58, 12 July 2006 (UTC)

  • I think this article is pretty good, but I do have a few comments. First, be careful about designations such as "in the last 20 years". Articles can become outdated and next year the sentences won't be correct anymore. If you say "since 1986", it won't require constant updating. In this particular case, the article you used as a source was written in 1993, so in the last 20 years actually means "since 1973". Secondly, the section about the inside of the cave contains a lot of language that's either non-encyclopedic, or otherwise not suitable for an encyclopedic article. It appears to be aimed at people who want to dive/explore the place, rather than people who want to know objective facts about its features. Other than that, I think you did a pretty good job. Any chance of getting some pictures? Remember, they have to be free to use and not copyrighted (anything that isn't labelled free is copyrighted). - Mgm|(talk) 08:35, 12 July 2006 (UTC)
Yay!! The article's on the front page. *dances* *calms down* Anyway, uh, I'm not entirely sure how much I should expand the section of the article you mentioned to me, 'cause the names like Death Ledge and such are 'official', i.e. that's what everyone calls them, like the Doll's Theatre or the Bashful Elephant in Carlsbad Caverns - should I put what the attractions actually are, like the Wormhole being a phreatic tube?
Yes, if you can find out, kind of describe it in a geological sense.
Deaths have been since 1957 according to the book I'm using,
Even better! Instead of saying the last 20 years, say since 1957, I thought you were citing the website. Don't forget to mention that book in the article if you haven't already.
but since Porthy's such a small cave I can't find much else on it, including pictures, though I was thinking of scanning in the pictures/diagrams from the book and affixing the appropriate tag...Lady BlahDeBlah 12:20, 12 July 2006 (UTC)
It looks like you know people who do some cave exploring. Perhaps you can take a picture of the cave yourself, have friend take a picture from the inside or ask a Wikipedian to provide a free picture of the main entrance? Free pictures are always better than copyrighted ones used under a fair use clause. - Mgm|(talk) 12:31, 12 July 2006 (UTC)
  • I hope I edited the references correctly. Is the listed book the one you used to determine the year since which 15 people have died? - Mgm|(talk) 12:36, 12 July 2006 (UTC)

Help fight systematic bias[edit]

Dear Lady,

I would like to draw your attention to the discussion currently ongoing at Talk:Popsicle. If you are interested in helping to counter systematic bias towards North America, and instead establish Wikipedia as an international website, then please feel welcome to contribute with your opinions. Thank you. EuroSong talk 19:44, 5 September 2006 (UTC)

Hiya![edit]

Somehow found your username & for some reason clicked on it. I think we've talked before, maybe about the Sarawak chamber, but I haven't checked yet. Anyway, I see we have a heap in common through reading your user boxes. You eat potatoes too? I thought I was never gonna find another. ;) Also, saw your rockin' anime on your site thingy. Hope you have a nice day, cause I have no idea why I posted here. :) Thanks -- Spawn Man 07:12, 13 September 2006 (UTC)

Very nice poses sir. Did you actually try them with your girlfriend? Bosniak 01:17, 8 June 2007 (UTC)

Srebrenica Genocide[edit]

Hi. I read your comment at Srebrenica massacre Discussion Page. If you would like to learn more about Srebrenica Genocide, you can visit my blog Srebrenica Genocide Blog. Srebrenica massacre has been ruled Genocide several times. First with Krstic judgment, then again for the second time when Krstic apealed, and then again for the third time with Blagojevic, and if I am correct, again for the fourth time when Blagojevic apealed, and again for the fifth time with ICJ ruling... So we had 5 judgments in favor of Srebrenica Genocide.Bosniak 06:05, 28 February 2007 (UTC)

Your novel[edit]

It's hard to know without having the details, but I'll have a go. :-) Your secondary character who is posting the details, he would have to be an admin so that he could lock the page. The problem then arises of him both editing the page and locking it, which admins aren't allowed to do, except in very limited circumstances (vandalism, libel etc). He'd therefore be likely to be reverted if any other admin noticed, and as you say he posts a confession about having done this on the talk page, it would be noticed soon enough.

The other problem you have is that you say the material he posts is fully cited; but if he can cite it properly, it means it's been published already, and therefore isn't a secret, so then (a) why would he need to post it to Wikipedia; and (b) why would he need to lock the page afterwards given his edit conformed to the sourcing policies?

Perhaps you could make your character a very popular editor, rather than an admin, so that when he posts the secret material (without proper sources, I'm assuming), people don't revert him as they normally would. A few try to, but wikifriends of your character turn up with sockpuppets and keep restoring the material until enough people have managed to read it. In the meantime, they post the link to the Wikipedia page version that contains the information all over the Internet, including on Slashdot, drawing people's attention to the secret material that the military doesn't want anyone to know. Your character and his sockpuppet friends only have to hold fast for a few hours until enough people have read it. Other admins could intervene, remove the material, and lock the page, but your character is such a popular editor that admins are willing to turn a blind eye, but only for a few hours. In the meantime, the military is trying to hack into Wikipedia's servers to shut them down, so it's a race against time. Would that work? SlimVirgin (talk) 19:23, 28 April 2007 (UTC)

The material could end up on the main page if someone added it to the Did you know? section, which picks out some interesting details from new articles and adds them to the main page. The problem is that the Did you know template is admin-only edits. [1] So your character would either have to be an admin, or one of his wiki-friends would have to be one. That creates a problem because the friend might be de-adminned for using his admin powers to interfere with the main page by adding inappopriate information. However, it could be a wiki-friend who has two admin accounts; this is not allowed on Wikipedia, but unfortunately it does happen. So he might decide to "burn" one of his admin accounts to help your character, just to get the information on the main page for a short time; with his admin colleagues willing to turn a blind eye to it for a few hours.

Thank you for support for our song,I live in your country and I heard too many people saying bad thing about our song,and in fact it is,in most cases,for political reasons.I live in London and I work in a night club,so all last night I was listenin to english people sayin all that shit just cause they dont like my country,so I just wanna tell u thanks for ur honesty,cause ur the first english person i`ve heard supportin our song.

Userboxes - you have too many![edit]

Lady BlahDeBlah

I answered your question on the Reference Desk then saw your user page. You need a userbox tidy girl! So I made you one - I have even put all your userboxes in the draws. Fixed a couple of broken ones too. Hope you like it. SpinningSpark 21:00, 5 January 2008 (UTC)

Color icons[edit]

It would be quite trivial to change the colors. Check out Image:Color icon blue.svg, and look at the svg source. If you're comfortable with hex colors, all you need is a text editor. Otherwise, I recommend Inkscape for SVG editing. ~ Booya Bazooka 04:46, 1 September 2008 (UTC)

SAS Userbox[edit]

I just noticed your unfulfilled request for an SAS box and so I have made one and added it to the list. I consider the box's wording of "This user admires the work of the SAS" to be basically "provisional", so if it doesn't suit, please do amend it. I used that wording so that users could show their interest in the unit without having to indicate whether they belong to it or not. Hope this makes your life complete! - Ahunt (talk) 12:31, 17 September 2008 (UTC)
