Hellofa[edit]

Greetings Quick and Dirty. That was an incredible copy-edit. I don't believe I missed a nuance of its magnitude; though I am certain that I have. A composite quality of your person escapes the frail cover of anonymity; exposing you as a professional writer of the highest echelon. I won't pry; but I am honored! I hope we can collaborate on some things in the future, and I offer my account, as an open door for you; if ever I may help you, in any way. With esteem,  --My76Strat (talk) 06:00, 6 January 2013 (UTC)

Thank you.

Hello[edit]

Hello Quick and Dirty. I hope you are, and have been well. I was reminiscing in meditation recently and remembrances of your editing prowess reminded me that I meant to keep in touch. If you get a chance, and the subject suits you, look at Boston Marathon bombings and consider adding your style of copy-editing. Cheers, My76Strat (talk) 00:02, 28 April 2013 (UTC)

O.K., thanks, I shall take a look. I hope that you have been well also.—Quick and Dirty User Account (talk) 11:26, 1 May 2013 (UTC)

Acholi people[edit]

Ngunalik (talk) 22:09, 4 May 2013 (UTC) Hi please do you know any administrator who could help stop two users who are vandalizing the article Acholi people. They remove sources before edition is complete and bearing in mind that getting article for African history is not easy. Majority of the time the history is oral, therefore when one struggles to find sources, they should not be deleted based on bias. This article is being vandalized by so called Zionists. You cannot believe the way these two users are behaving one is Anonymous44 and another is Parkwells. If you know any administrator that can help step in it would be very good. Regards Ngunalik (talk) 22:09, 4 May 2013 (UTC)

Iri maber, Ngunalik.
I’m sorry that you are having this difficulty. I’ve looked at the revision history of the article, and its discussion page, and there does appear to be an edit war going on. The dispute seems to boil down to what sources should be considered reliable. This subject is discussed on the page about Wikipedia’s guideline for identifying reliable sources. I take your point about the difficulty of finding published, indigenous sources in Africa; however, for the purpose of editing articles on Wikipedia, sources must still meet this guideline. Additionally, adding text with the intention of adding sources for it later will only cause you headaches; as you have seen, content will soon be removed by another editor if it does not have a citation to a source that is, in that editor’s opinion, reliable. If you believe that your edits are being reverted without cause, then please read the section “Handling of edit-warring behaviors” on the page about edit warring.
Incidentally, I’m guessing that you speak Acoli, so you might be interested in the proposed Acoli Wikipedia, which is currently in the testing phase. (I speak just a little Acoli. A dear friend of mine who is from Atiak is teaching me.)
Iri maber bene,

Only a little.  ;)  —Quick and Dirty User Account (talk) 12:09, 3 September 2013 (UTC)

Please change your username[edit]

Your username can look like a vandal, I almost reverted one of your edits. ∼∼∼∼ Eric0928Talk 13:33, 30 November 2016 (UTC)

Thank you for the advice, Eric. However, I have been using this username for several years, and no one has previously expressed concerns. Regarding Wikipedia username policy, I don’t believe that my username shows “a clear intent to disrupt Wikipedia” or is confusing. As quick and dirty implies, however, I did not intend to use this username on a long-term basis, and I have been intending to change it for some time. I just haven’t got around to settling on a new name and changing to it yet.
