Wikipedia gets thousands of acts of vandalism every day. During peak times, it gets 20+ acts of vandalism per minute. I help reverse vandalism and block repeat vandals through vandalism patrolling using Huggle.

Unfortunately, I sometimes make mistakes. If I do, please just reapply your changes and put an explanation in the edit summary. I very much want your contributions. Thank you! - Pingveno

Terrorists incidents[edit]

You add the accident in Peshawar on 5 December to terrorist incident.At starting of accident, media says that it is a car bomb.But when Bomb desposal scoud team check the car, but they doesnt found any bomb evidence.Whereas bomb desposal say that it is a chemical explotion in Chemical and paint shop.I think you people just add old news but it updated from terrorist incident to an accident. So please delete that accident from terrorist insidents. http://www.deccanherald.com/content/39593/blast-peshawar-market-two-killed.html I was know that you people add this news in terrorist incident because of wrong news spread by Pakistani media without any evidance.So i daily check the terrorist incident page. A few days before more than 100 people killed in Russia.At starting of incident it is called terrorist incidents but after checking of their bomb desposal scoud that incident is an accident because of fire works.

Bill Sizemore[edit]

Hi there - hoping you'll expand on your thoughts on Talk:Bill Sizemore. -Pete 22:06, 28 August 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for getting back to me - I'm definitely open to editing it to reduce POV, but I think it's an important point and needs to be there in some form. I'm generally opposed to Sizemore's politics, I was favorably inclined toward M42, and above all want to make sure that WP is accurate…so I'm not sure what POV it is that you think I've inserted! If you want to change the wording or discuss more I'm interested. -Pete 01:15, 3 September 2007 (UTC)


David K. Wong[edit]

Hi, I noticed you put the tag back on the David K. Wong article that was removed by an anonymous user, I would have done this myself but noticed that in the txt of the template it says that the tag may be removed if the person objects for any reason to the articles deletion, and that it should not be replaced if is removed. Am I mis-reading these two points, or missing something? I also left a message on the board of the person who originally put the tag there with this question, and what the correct course of action should be.Number36 01:38, 22 October 2007 (UTC)


My Supposed Vandalism[edit]

I edit I made to Wolfe Kelman's page wasn't vandalism. As his grandson, I would know how many grandchildren he has and his date of birth. If you want, I can name all ten of them and where they live, including me. 99.67.181.166 (talk) 19:48, 14 November 2009 (UTC)

In response to you, I can send you a link of my family tree online. Also, when he died, he did only have six. My siblings and I were born after his death, which is probably the cause of the confusion. Since we were born after his death, I guess we didn't "survive" him, but maybe the article can be edited in a way that shows that he currently has 10 living grandchildren. 99.67.181.166 (talk) 19:57, 14 November 2009 (UTC)
Here is a source- http://www.geni.com/family-tree?ref=ph , I am Alexander Barg, it's not the easiest to follow, but its the best my family has online. And I saw the edit you made and it seems fine, thanks for the help. 99.67.181.166 (talk) 20:04, 14 November 2009 (UTC)
That source is good. Also, I edited Naamah Kelman's article to add her correct birth date. 99.67.181.166 (talk) 20:11, 14 November 2009 (UTC)
Thank you for the help, you were just doing your job and had no way of knowing that I was related to him, but it's good that we got this all settled out. 99.67.181.166 (talk) 20:29, 14 November 2009 (UTC)

Rollback[edit]

Wikipedia Rollback.svg

I have granted rollback rights to your account; the reason for this is that after a review of some of your contributions, I believe you can be trusted to use rollback correctly, and for its intended usage of reverting vandalism, and that you will not abuse it by reverting good-faith edits or to revert-war. For information on rollback, see Wikipedia:New admin school/Rollback and Wikipedia:Rollback feature. If you do not want rollback, just let me know, and I'll remove it. Good luck and thanks.

Blank warning.[edit]

Don't warn people for blanking pages they created that haven't been substantially edited by other editors and are probably not notable anyway... just tag them for {{db-author}}. Gigs (talk) 04:34, 22 November 2009 (UTC)

Sam Adams[edit]

Hi, I appreciate your efforts but this article has been a magnet for slinging mud at Adams for many months. It was agreed a while ago that there was no reason to use Breedlove's name as adding nothing to the article and avoiding undue weight to imply Adams was doing anything actually wrong in regards to Breedlove's age. Sourcing is quite clear that the relationship was consensual and the only reason the content is included is that Adams lied about the relationship during the election cycle. Likewise the recall effort is only given due weight especially as it seems unlikely to have much if any impact. -- Banjeboi 06:32, 25 November 2009 (UTC)


St. Mary of the Angels in Chicago[edit]

Dear Pingveno, quite a few folks have tossed in Henry Schlacks name here since he designed a number of buildings in the parish plant, among them the original church/schoolhouse. However this church building was designed by the architectural firm of Worthmann and Steinbach as you can see for yourself here:

Thanks for being on the lookout. Good luck with your work!--Orestek (talk) 10:23, 25 November 2009 (UTC)

Stop vandalizing Wikipedia[edit]

FCSundae: "Didn't appear to be constructive to who"? Can you please "assume good faith" and not slander or assume and not arrogantly like the narcissist you are speak for the entire world and make 1 second judgments, jumping headlong into a decision like you are arbiter for the world? What arrogance. So whatever "appears not to be helpful" to you, isn't? Is that why no one reverted that edit till the next day, because it was so unhelpful? Learn whatever evidence means. Hint: It's not whatever you feel it to be or whatever your personal opinion of it is and it's not by determined by consensus. Stop vandalizing Wikipedia to suit your personal agenda and cherry picking information which is the accusation administrator Prolog slanderously made and which he is the one guilty of. Stop censoring information that is relevant and calling it cherry-picking. Stop being biased and do your job correctly, not with bias and to meet the expectations of your friends. Stop pandering. Stop that sickening practice that you bigoted moderators continually engage in which is to accuse every user of sock puppetry who does not agree with your disgusting bully selves! That is not polite and not fair, ok weasel-wording vandal? Wikipedia is supposed to be free for anyone to edit: Not a tool for moderators and adminsitrators to push their personal agenda and views. AND STOP HIDING BEHIND WEASEL-WORDS AND PRETENTIOUS SPEECH AND THEN ACCUSER USERS OF BEING OH NO: IMPOLITE. It is you who is impolite and making virtual insults. This is not liberal-pedia you vandal: IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE NEUTRAL.Spearfire (talk)

Wow, I don't think I've ever been attacked on three different user pages before. FCSundae (talk) 08:31, 8 March 2010 (UTC)

Never Let Me Go (2010 Film)[edit]

Hello. It was never my intent to "vandalize" this page, however, both sections "Writing" and "Release" relied on redundant information already posted on the same page, and "Release" also relied on badly-spelled especulation. Therefore, I stand by my edition of it, and intend to redo it, not as disrespect to you, but rather, as a matter of clarity in the article. Sorry to point it out, but this time the mistake was yours. Regards. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 80.30.253.40 (talk) 07:50, 27 March 2010 (UTC)
