You've got mail!

Dear Phaedriel, I've just sent you an e-mail and because you seem to like orange message bars, I just had to leave you one! Love, Kyoko 20:11, 15 June 2007 (UTC)


Phaedriel, if you are on-line, this backlog is growing faster than I can (with help) control it.--Anthony.bradbury"talk" 22:10, 15 June 2007 (UTC)


That's soting them out! See my e-mail when you have time. Love. --Anthony.bradbury"talk" 22:21, 15 June 2007 (UTC)


Ok, Sharon , the CSD backlog is now down to less than 20 (thank you). I am now going to pour a very large vodka and orange and go to bed (after mdnight here). Do you have any plans that you wish to share?--Anthony.bradbury"talk" 23:21, 15 June 2007 (UTC)

User Page Design?

Could you design a user page layout/talk page layout for me? *hands cookies* Cheers, Corvus coronoides 00:23, 16 June 2007 (UTC)


I found that she got blocked today, the blocking admin claiming that she is a sockpuppet of her former name. Do you have any idea of what the hell is going on? Karrmann 10:41, 13 June 2007 (UTC)

Actually, I'm curious too... I know it's none of my business, but when I looked I couldn't find the checkuser file, and I still have no idea why she was blocked. I thought she was a good-faith editor. Btw did you get my email yesterday? Waltontalk 19:22, 13 June 2007 (UTC)
Phaedriel, I am very curious about this as well. I saw User:Bhaedriel, and thought to myself..._ _ _? Miranda 02:53, 14 June 2007 (UTC)
Note that in cases where an individual's privacy is concerned, checkusers can be done under OTRS. Daniel has indicated that this has been the case here and that the person to talk to is User:Jayjg, who can only reveal so much anyway. Personally, I think it's time to do the RBI thing here ... - Alison 03:09, 14 June 2007 (UTC)
A clarification: OTRS had nothing to do with this; maybe you were thinking of the m:Checkuser policy or m:Privacy policy? If I mentioned OTRS, then that was incorrect of me; however, I don't believe I did, because OTRS didn't have any involvement in this at all. I am aware of the details of this situation, and the behavioural evidence compilation I saw was enough to block anyways (I was about to); the checkuser confirmation sealed the deal, and Jayjg beat me to blocking. Daniel 09:07, 15 June 2007 (UTC)
Revert...block...ignore...and smile! Miranda 08:01, 17 June 2007 (UTC)

(reduce indent) I saw that, Alison, and I e-mailed him. Miranda 03:13, 14 June 2007 (UTC)

User talk:White Cat#Userpage

Hi, I had the most interesting conversation I had to date on wikipedia with a User:Calton, I was told to consult you should I have "further problems". While I do not have "further problems", I am pondering whats this all about? -- Cat chi? 17:35, 16 June 2007 (UTC)

Meri ek wikipedian dost hai, Phaedriel (I have a wikipedian friend, Phaedriel).
Thank you. More thanks for the beautiful gift! I failed to invite you to the party - I will arrange one specially for you :) Meanwhile, please consume something which I am sending you via wiki-mail, which I have prepared for a person's blog. As and when it appears in the blog, I shall give you the link. Best. --Bhadani (talk) 18:00, 16 June 2007 (UTC)

Husond already has a day, and you gave him another one! What did he do to earn that? – Gurch 11:08, 17 June 2007 (UTC)

Are you OK?

Phaedriel, are you OK? You didn't reply to my email sent a few days ago, and I'm just checking that you're alright after recent events, and that I haven't inadvertently done anything to offend you. (Sorry if I'm being paranoid.) Waltontalk 11:40, 17 June 2007 (UTC)

Awesome Wikipedian error

Hi Phaedriel, I dont no whether or not you've noticed or not but for the Awesome Wikipedian subpage you have had Husond as todays Wikipedian but you have named it to be May 17 instead of June 17, would you like me to move it for you? All the best. The Sunshine Man 12:11, 17 June 2007 (UTC)

Husond totally deserves 2 days ;) Riana 12:26, 17 June 2007 (UTC)
Sunshine Man, she didn't name it wrong. She just didn't create the page yet. The one that displays on her userpage is located at User:Phaedriel/Today/17. That means every month, she replaces the one located at /17, but the one at May 17, 2007 stays the same. She just hasn't created the June 17, 2007 yet, or replaced the one at /17 with June 17th. --(Review Me) R ParlateContribs@ (Let's Go Yankees!) 12:47, 17 June 2007 (UTC)
Ok... I think I understand R - hang on ...... OK. I didnt mean Husond didn't deserve it I was just pointing it out. The Sunshine Man 13:05, 17 June 2007 (UTC)

Direct save vs transclusions

Hi there. I was reading CharlotteWeb's RFA, and that led me (eventually) to User talk:Phaedriel/Archive 31#Copyright concerns. I was wondering if transcluding the quotes from a separate page is better or worse than saving them directly onto the talk page of the person in question? I had a look through, and there were some lovely quotes there! But that made me realise that having an organised set of subpages like that makes it possible to browse through them (though only if one is aware of how to list subpages), which might be more problematic for fair-use quotes than for public domain ones. Of course, saving the quotes directly onto people's pages has other problems as well. It's an interesting issue. Hope you didn't mind me bringing it up again (I see from reading the various talk page threads that it, um, generated a fair amount of passion!). Carcharoth 18:44, 17 June 2007 (UTC)

Ah, the lengths people will go to to be picky over copyright concerns. Carcharoth, it's just a bunch of quotes, alright? Leave her alone. Otherwise, how about I start hassling you over your username, which, if we're going to be this picky, is a copyright violation too – Gurch 23:25, 17 June 2007 (UTC)
I've replied on Gurch's talk page. Phaedriel, as I said, I hope you didn't mind me bringing it up again. Apologies if that was the wrong thing to do. Carcharoth 00:45, 18 June 2007 (UTC)

Neighborhood watch

My dearest Phaedriel, I have a big favor to ask...I'm heading off for a week of camping in the California coastal redwoods (Big Sur)...far from cell phones and Wikipedia. I would appreciate it if you would keep an eye out on things for me, including folks stopping by my talk page needing help. Many thanks, and I'll shoot a flower or two for you!

My userpage

Hey there Phaedriel, I've been doing up my userpage tonight, and I think I fixed the formatting, does it look okay to you now? Hope you're good, - Zeibura(talk) 03:39, 18 June 2007 (UTC)

Backlog (again)

Phaedriel, there are three of us hammering away at the CSD backlog, which remains resolutely pegged at 123. Care to make it four for a bit?--Anthony.bradbury"talk" 00:11, 19 June 2007 (UTC)

User:Jack Merridew

Hi, I've just built a first draft of my user page and I took the structure from your page — Terima kasih! I did tweak a few things along the way and welcome any input you feel like offering. While your embedded page-comment says that you would prefer to create an entirely new design for people, I'm diving in directly in order to learn the techniques myself. FYI, I first noticed a comment of yours on a notice board and followed the link to your page where I was struck by the piece on Being Indian. I like the look of your page and was inspired to work on mine. Best wishes, Jack Merridew 08:53, 19 June 2007 (UTC)

Best wishes to you and your daughter (a hot lemon drink works wonders for a cold). --Jack Merridew 11:07, 19 June 2007 (UTC)

Miranda's Day

Tulip - floriade canberra.jpg

Phaedriel, I am sorry about not getting this sooner to you, but I was busy. I really am deeply appreciative in you caring so much about Wikipedians like me, and "Miranda's Day" really made my day! Also, I am praying for your daughter to become well. I am taking a break from Wikipedia to focus on business occurring in real life. See you around. Miranda 12:19, 19 June 2007 (UTC)


I convey my best wishes and blessings for a very early recovery of your daughter. Please take care of her and yourself. There is no necessity to reply to to this message. Please take all care. --Bhadani (talk) 16:09, 19 June 2007 (UTC)

Article Protection

Hi there. Sorry to see your are currently in a melancholic state. Hope you cheer up soon! The reason I'm stopping by though, is that the protection you correctly placed on state terrorism by the United States is about to expire, yet the conflicts have not been resolved yet. So, think the page should remains protected until disputes are resolved. I think it may take mediation, etc. Otherwise, its going to be the same as before, and we can all really do without more edit waring on that article. Thanks, and hope you feel better soon.Giovanni33 20:11, 20 June 2007 (UTC)

Dear Phaedriel,

Hi Phaedriel, in case you or someone else reads the message above, I've left a message on Cherniy X's talk page about Impotchomon, deletion, and notability, since I figured that you may not be able to respond quickly.

So sorry to hear

Hi Sharon, got back from vacation and just now heard about your daughter. You and her are in my prayers. I have 2 daughters myself, so I know how you feel. When mine were younger and sick, it would just make my heart ache to watch her suffering and not be able to do anything to fix it. Anyway, if you need an ear or a shoulder to cry on, I'm here for you. AKRadeckiSpeaketh 17:02, 23 June 2007 (UTC)

Good to know

Hello Phaedriel. I didn't know your daughter was ill, but I'm glad I found out at the same time I read she was back home safe and sound. I truly hope for a complete, quick recovery, and that her everlasting, ethereal smile may forever be bound with yours. Best regards, Húsönd 01:24, 25 June 2007 (UTC)

Something you might find useful

First and foremost, I'm glad to hear that your daughter is doing well; I had no idea she wasn't, but that doesn't make me any less happy to know she's healthy. :)

Also, thank you so much for awarding me a day; that was one more item on a truly awesome day, and it made me all the happier.

Related to that, I finally got around to making a userbox that others editors you've awarded days to can use. You can find it at User:EVula/Userboxes/Happy Me Day!, and see it in action at User:EVula/awards (towards the bottom). Just letting you know. :) EVula // talk // // 04:29, 25 June 2007 (UTC)
