Vandalism by others users on Altoona-related articles[edit]

As you are already aware, there has been consistent vandalism to Altoona-related articles as well as your user pages. Despite these edits coming from different IPs, the nature of the edits indicates that they are being performed by one (or at most: a select few) individual(s). It also appears likely that the individual(s) know you personally, as random strangers generally wouldn't have such persistence to direct their libel toward you directly. I am pursuing the issue with the internet service provider -- which is the same across all of the IP addresses making the edits. Any information you may be able to provide would be greatly appreciated. If you know the individual(s), you may be able to file a lawsuit against the individual(s) for libel, slander, harassment, etc. Cheers! --Bossi (talkgallerycontrib) 00:42, 14 May 2008 (UTC)

Thank you, this is much appreciated. Unfortunately, I do know this user from a site I used to post on back when I had very controversial viewpoints which have since changed for the better. The site is DirtyJokesInc, and he was mostly known as "bert" or "bertram". The same individual, or at least someone "allied" with this person, would also post under other names and use a pretentious, stereotypical Harvardesque vocabulary. Unfortunately, he's followed me around to just about every website or forum that I've been a member of, including vandalism on my own website. He has once or twice said that he's met me and lives in Altoona, but I don't know anything about him beyond that. I wish I knew more information so that I could put a stop to his garbage once and for all. MVillani1985 (talk) 14:39, 14 May 2008 (UTC)

You have a really cool page, I love football and the format is nice. Sorry but I'm a Pitt fan but i hope the lions win too! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.200.128.186 (talk) 10:55, 11 September 2008 (UTC)

Little context in Umbrubru Forest[edit]

Information icon.svg

Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on Umbrubru Forest, by another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. The tag claims that it should be speedily deleted because Umbrubru Forest is very short providing little or no context to the reader.

Disambiguation link notification for June 7[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited High-low skirt, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page The Voice (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Speedy deletion nomination of Value Shitty[edit]

Please do not create pages that attack, threaten, or disparage their subject. Attack pages and files are not tolerated by Wikipedia and are speedily deleted. Users who create or add such material may be blocked from editing Wikipedia. Thank you. Ueutyi (talk) 08:01, 10 January 2016 (UTC)

It was a common nickname for Value City in the region the stores existed. The nickname is meant in good fun, not to be hurtful, as a pun on the store's name, used mostly by the regular customers. Kind of like when people call Wal-Mart something like Wal-Fart. I made a redirect because I didn't feel mentioning the local nickname was appropriate for the article since it would probably detract from the professional intent. And it's hard to share context within a redirect. MVillani1985 (talk) 22:33, 22 January 2016 (UTC)
