To pick up your spirits

A grasshopper walks into a pub and hops up onto an available stool. He's about to order a drink when the bartender notices him, smiles and exclaims, "Hey! We have a drink named after you!"
The grasshopper blushes, and looks wide-eyed at the bartender before replying with a stutter.
You h-have a drink n-named B-b-bobby?

-Yeah, it's an old one, but every time my nephew tells it to me, I get a kick. Maybe you will, too. :) - Arcayne (cast a spell) 14:32, 28 October 2008 (UTC)

Hello Phaedriel,

Why have you deleted this page ? What does it mean "r3" for you ? Could you restore this page ? Thanks. --Pixeltoo (talk) 17:59, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

Touch the Clouds

Phaedriel, I found your name in the list of contributors to Native American subjects and I hoped you could help me with the article on Touch the Clouds which I have helped to expand recently. It is currently a GA nominee and I hope it is good enough to pass. If not, then maybe you know some more information or sources I could use? Jouke Bersma Contributions 11:49, 25 November 2008 (UTC)

Phaedriel left more than a year ago. --Anna Lincoln (talk) 12:04, 25 November 2008 (UTC)

Oh, sorry, did not know that - I just picked a random user from a list of people who might be able to help me with this native american american related subject. Sorry for bothering you then. Jouke Bersma Contributions 12:06, 25 November 2008 (UTC)

I couldn't resist... :)

Is this a combination of my Christmas greeting from 2006 and my New Year's greeting from last year? Why, it most certainly is! Hey, if it ain't broke...

Merry Christmas

No fancy templates here, just a "merry christmas". We're missing you. :( Sceptre (talk) 00:24, 25 December 2008 (UTC)

Somehow, the beauty and the flow of the hair and clothing reminds me of the sort of images you like. The inscription is in the description. I hope you are well. --David Shankbone 22:30, 31 December 2008 (UTC)

Your (brief) input requested

Hi Sharon, hope you're doing well. I know you're on extended wikibreak - and I should be LOL - but was hoping you might have a comment or some input on Talk:Native_American_mythology#Name_change.3F. Thanks. If you'd like to hear some of my latest music, shoot me a line ("symphonic electric guitar") via email.Skookum1 (talk) 16:57, 12 January 2009 (UTC)

Hello, I have a request.

Hi! I know you're on a break so there's no rush, just whenever you have the time I'd like to request a userpage design from you, (did I mention how attractive you are?) cuz I'm not good at that sort of thing and right now my page is just a collection of userboxes (and how incredibly intelligent you are?). I'm not looking for anything fancy, just a quick and basic design similar to yours or however you think it would look best, (and so amazing!), should be really easy for you. Thank you! ;) -- OlEnglish (talk) 00:17, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

You may want to read the notice in yellow at the very top of this page. RlevseTalk 00:28, 18 January 2009 (UTC)
Thanks, already have. Btw, for some reason, my current userpage looks fine in Internet Explorer but all messed up in Firefox and I don't know why. The formatting just goes all weird, do you know why this is? OlEnglish (talk) 00:30, 18 January 2009 (UTC)
Different browswers. If you want it to look a certain way in a certain browser, ask User:Jack Merridew, he's really good at user page layout. RlevseTalk 00:38, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

Merger proposal: The Open Organization Of Lockpickers

I saw that you took part in the AfD discussion regarding the article and would like to invite you to comment on my merger proposal.(I realize you are away but still wanted to notify you...) Arachnowhat (talk) 13:18, 24 January 2009 (UTC)

Request for page design

Hi, I've been "stealing" your designs for some time now, but I really need help with one. Namely, I'm trying to make an easy to read and friendly template explaining how to write a stub onto the pages of new users. I come across so many people who create articles that could have been imported directly from MS Word, and still others that add the names of people with no articles about them to lists... The template and message are below, but they are butt- ugly (Except for the template- I wonder whose design that was..?) Also, how to prevent the headings in the template from showing up in the TOC...? I'm at a loss...

Please take a look. Thanks, Lithoderm 15:48, 29 January 2009 (UTC)

Phaedriel has been inactive for some time. You may want to look elsewhere for assistance. Chrislk02 Chris Kreider 15:49, 29 January 2009 (UTC)

Dear Sharon

it's been such a long time. chances of you reading this are slim but i submit it anyway. i thank you very much while you were on Wikipedia. i left 2008 due to Wikipedia's dull site, which was a result of your missing kind presence. by the way you are, i know many people miss you. i would love to know how your baby is doing. -Yancyfry (talk) 23:49, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

We all know how awesome you are. It's two years later and people are still leaving messages on your talk page, which is definite testimony to that! We all miss you! :) Fredil 18:34, 3 July 2009 (UTC)

Sharon's status

Do any Wikipedian's know her personally that can tell us that she is alive and well? I've been struck by the number of people she has influenced and would just like to know that she is okay. --Daysleeper47 (talk) 03:06, 4 July 2009 (UTC)

As far as I know, no-one on Wikipedia, including myself, has heard from her in the past fifteen months. However, she may be doing just fine, and left Wikipedia and/or her email entirely as a result of the harassment she was subject to, which was verging into real life (if I remember correctly). Sceptre (talk) 06:02, 4 July 2009 (UTC)
Yes, Sharon was, I believe, threatened with serious disciplinary measures within her workplace unless she withdrew from wikipedia. But I have not heard from her since she did, though I have tried both e-mail and snail-mail. --Anthony.bradbury"talk" 17:01, 4 July 2009 (UTC)
I'd like to think that she is still around...socking it. I didn't know her personally but I have the wishful thinking that she is still around. Perhaps she only needed to separate her identity from editing on the Wiki.
If not, it is still a beautiful dream and comforting thought.
⋙–Berean–Hunter—► ((⊕)) 17:20, 4 July 2009 (UTC)
I do hope she is doing well. I regret not getting to know her when I had the chance, but just by looking through the various user pages I can see she made difference. TomStar81 (Talk) 07:05, 5 July 2009 (UTC)
"Strange, isn't it? Each man's life touches so many other lives. When he isn't around he leaves an awful hole, doesn't he?" — Clarence Oddbody, It's a Wonderful Life

She and I were quite close; I knew that she was in increasing difficulty, not only at work but also as a reult of multiple harassment by a group of associated users, who were making her life here impossible. I advised her to exercise her right to vanish, and hopefully reappear with a new account. I hope and believe that she did this. I also hope and believe that she scans this page from time to time. Sharon, be happy. Love. --Anthony.bradbury"talk" 14:43, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

SHe had definite real life issues that I won't go into. The whole thing is a damn shame; that there are so many sickos out there they get off harassing people like this. RlevseTalk 16:17, 26 July 2009 (UTC)
I can understand how it might be difficult to go into the details of the issues. I also agree that the idiots who would go around harassing someone who did so much to try to improve the atmosphere around here are, frankly, disgusting. It's a good thing that some of us don't know too many details, like the names of the others involved. All I can do is hope that the situation improves for her, whether she ever returns or not. Her contributions to date have been more than enough to earn the respect and thanks of us all. John Carter (talk) 16:46, 26 July 2009 (UTC)
The good thing about us not knowing the details is that we are less likely to be arrested for various measures that in order to not seem threatening I won't mention. We're very protective of you, Sharon. :) —  $PЯINGεrαgђ  20:26 4 August, 2009 (UTC)

Well, it's been over two years now, Sharon, but I'm still thinking of you and you family. Hope all is well. Email sometime if you get the notion to :) - Alison 10:01, 29 October 2009 (UTC)

Deletion of Swargadwari article

Apparently you deleted a new article on the Swargadwari shrine in Nepal that I recently worked on.

What I had done was to re-work several paragraphs about Swargadwari that someone added to an article on Pyuthan district. I felt this material left the Pyuthan article unbalanced. Sort of a "tail wagging the dog" problem. To draw an analogy, it was like an article about New York City that was 3/4 about St. Patrick's Cathedral.

At the same time I felt Swargadwari deserved an article in its own right because people travel for days inside Nepal and from India to go there. It's hard to draw cross-cultural parallels, however I think anyone researching the surrounding district ("county") or contemplating a visit ought to be informed on this, just as anyone visiting the administrative unit in France where Lourdes is located ought to inform themselves about it, whether they elect to visit it or not.

At the same time I felt the original material had a POV problem in that it was written in a very pro-Hindu/pro-Brahmin way, when Nepal actually is a lot more multi-cultural. In fact they recently fought a civil war (1996-2008) over society being over-dominated by the royal family in cahoots with the two highest Hindu castes. Without getting into a discussion of all that, I attempted to tone down the language and make it more neutral.

So after investing thought and time in this article, I was disappointed to see it disappear with no explanation why you apparently took exception to it.

WikiMarkup Help

Hi. After I saw how good you are with WikiMarkup, I decided that you may be able to help me with my userpage.
