  • I will try to fix any image problems as soon as possible if a bot/editor leaves me a notice about an image and then revert the bot/editor's edit to acknowledge it as resolved. I like to keep things neat and focused on discussions, not line after line of image problems to take care of.
    • For transparency, that is all that I remove from my talk page completely outside of vandalism. Every other topic will be archived as appropriate, though not on a set schedule (usually every three or six months depending on how much is on the page).
  • I do carry rollback privileges, so if you need any help and I'm on, you can ask me here. However, note I will not get into edit wars and only use rollback for basic vandalism repair.
  • I do carry file moving privileges, so if you accidentally upload a logo or picture as "EJNEDC_128929_21.jpg", feel free to ask me to name it to something a bit more logical.
  • I also work on the conversation style of 'respond on your talk page, you respond here, I'll respond there', etc.
  • Please, if you can, try to list template notices under one heading for my convenience, rather than template after template if there are multiple notices. It makes acknowledgement much easier.
  • No profanity please. You can make a point just as easily without laying down an F-bomb here. I reserve the right to refactor your comment to remove profanity; I don't like going to my talk page and having to skim through swear words over and over again.
  • If you're here to leave some kind of attack on my page because of a vandalism rollback, reversion or some other kind of finding, I'm not exactly quaking that you're going to 'hack' my page or that I'm whatever choice obscenity you'd like to call me; it's getting reverted by me or another patrolling editor anyways. Before you leave a message, ask yourself; is it worth the effort to add a strike on the way to a block?
  • And please post in chronological order, on the bottom or by using the 'add heading' link. It's not that hard, it's common talk page etiquette and custom, and keeps things clean.

Green Bay Packers WikiProject[edit]

Hi Mrschimpf! I have noticed you editing Packers articles lately, so I just wanted to let you know that I have restarted the Green Bay Packers WikiProject. Come check out the page and if you are interested, add yourself to the active member list! I have done some work to get all of our articles assessed and add some new tools. Please feel free to post on the WikiProject's talk page or on my talk page if you have any questions! Thanks, « Gonzo fan2007 (talk) @ 14:26, 10 July 2016 (UTC)

But they're not blocked...? clpo13(talk) 21:45, 22 July 2016 (UTC)
My account is not, but I need to ask for IP exemption for my mobile devices as I'm currently participating in a project which requires me to use a blocked VPN IP. Rest assured I did ask for the action. Nate (chatter) 21:48, 22 July 2016 (UTC)
Done - let me know when you no longer need it so I can remove it. :-) Katietalk 22:57, 22 July 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for getting this taken care of Katie, it's much appreciated. I didn't want to stop editing just because of a VPN beyond my control. Nate (chatter) 02:18, 23 July 2016 (UTC)

Your revert[edit]

Regarding your revert of a revert by Adam Dean Hall, can you show me any examples of what you meant when you said "this attitude of ignoring things needs to stop?" I'm not skeptical of your claim; to the contrary, it fits neatly with what I'm thinking is a long-running issue with this user, one that goes way beyond problematic edits or even ignoring others' concerns. If I can establish that the inexplicable warning and report from Hall to/about Howiebraunstein are part of a long-term pattern, I've kinda/sorta been ordered by an admin to report Hall at WP:ANI.

Your revert[edit]

This is regarding changes that I made to MTV Hits, BET Jams, mtvU, CMT Music, BET Soul, BET Gospel. You had accused me of being a troll. I added the new channels for Dish Network after I noticed that they had been added to Dish, see Dish Packeges to confirm. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Spikethepunkrocker (talkcontribs) 19:30, 14 August 2016 (UTC)

In Regards to User:2601:80:4203:1A20:F1A0:208D:F46E:A3D2[edit]

For your information this person is clearly a vandal, I just reverted their edits on Bentley Warren and WMGM-TV. If they continue I'm going to put in a request to have their editing privileges suspended until they can learn to play nice. YborCityJohn (talk) 23:48, 2 September 2016 (UTC)

To let you know I've just had about enough of this of this IPV6 user's vandalism and have filed a report on Wikipedia:Administrator intervention against vandalism presenting quite damning evidence and requesting that their account be blocked on a permanent basis. YborCityJohn (talk) 17:12, 7 September 2016 (UTC)
I need your help, my report just got knocked down by User talk:Widr who I presume is an admin, he/they stated that there were not enough recent edits and the report is stale which I dispute because User:2601:80:4203:1A20:F1A0:208D:F46E:A3D2 most recent edit is today and the length of vandalism edit is in my opinion enough to warrant a block of that user. I just don't know what else to do. YborCityJohn (talk) 17:26, 7 September 2016 (UTC)
Well it appears our vandal friend is back and he is using the same IPV6 address as before they just posted on the WMGM-TV talk page that NBC's raw feed is going to be on 23 hours which we know is not true they are just trying to stir up the pot again, I gave them another warning on the WMGM-TV talk page as well as on their own talk page. Have a nice night. YborCityJohn (talk) 03:29, 8 September 2016 (UTC)
Just to let you know I've filed a Sockpuppet report located here against User:2601:80:4203:1A20:F1A0:208D:F46E:A3D2. Please feel free to add a comment or any further evidence. YborCityJohn (talk) 03:52, 13 September 2016 (UTC)

Your revert - List of Internet television providers[edit]

Mrschimpf, re:(08:48, 9 September 2016‎ Mrschimpf (talk | contribs)‎ . . (8,157 bytes) (-39)‎ . . (rv (we don't welcome spam here, especially claims that it's equivalent to Crackle or Epix))

I do not understand what constitutes spam in this instance. This site is clearly an independent internet television provider. The content is 100% original unlike many of the site on this list that are only providing redistribution of content. Could you please specify why you believe that only internet television provider that feature "Mainstream Content" should be considered for this wiki.

Here are a few credible sources that mention DromeBox (

And to your claim that "it definitely does not have unique programming". None of this content is from any other site and most of the shows are unlike something I have seen on network tv in ages.

Removing the odious "Follow up" in the TV schedule articles.[edit]

I took the bull by the horns, in no small part given the final push by your comments in the last ANI discussion of Adam Dean Hall, and have replaced the idiotic "follow-up" with mid-fall and late fall in the article on the 2016-17 television schedule. I've also started a discussion, if you'd care to take a peek. The terms aren't perfect, but they beat what was there by a mile. --Drmargi (talk) 22:42, 9 September 2016 (UTC)

So. It appears Mr ADH has decided not to kick up a fuss about removing "follow-up". What do you think about backtracking a few seasons and removing it? We could tag-team it (you take the odd years, I take the evens or some such thing) and go back at least a few seasons. --Drmargi (talk) 20:37, 16 September 2016 (UTC)

Canada is not the United States.[edit]

And information with no links or sources to back it up, has no business being in articles solely pertaining to DOMESTIC United States television networks. It doesn't matter if the signal crosses the border you don't have any sources to back that up, and to top it off the CRTC a Canadian Federal Government institution has no authority over any US network, you're looking for the FCC. It's irrelevant information to put in the lede of any domestic network that foreigners, and their foreign authority control Canadian domestic pay television. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:53, 13 September 2016 (UTC)
