Ideelism[edit]

Lookin' good. Pepso2 (talk) 23:01, 12 October 2009 (UTC)

Shmoo[edit]

Done!

Images[edit]

Rackin, to upload picture, put image on desktop. Click on "upload file" at left. Click on "photo" or whatever. Fill out template, giving source of image. Click on "choose Image" to browse from your desktop. Click on "upload". Then paste filename into double brackets to display. Pepso2 (talk) 02:00, 2 December 2009 (UTC)

Thanks again, Pepso. Honestly, my biggest problem is finding images what will pass muster with Wikipedia's copyright policies, and won't be taken down a month later. Shmoo page looks better than ever thanks to you. I made some copy changes to Blondie (comic strip) and Wizard of Id (comic strip) recently, too. Rackinfrackin (talk) 12:39, 2 December 2009

Intro in Pogo article[edit]

Hey Rackinfrackin.

Would you mind taking a look at my question on the Pogo talk page? I don't at all want to get in an edit war with a fellow Pogo fan whose only crime is wanting to praise the quality of the strip :-), but I do think that the current wording is pretty non-neutral.

Thanks. Subverdor (talk) 21:31, 9 January 2010 (UTC)

Laurel and Hardy[edit]

Whenever major changes are done to an article especially introducing a large number of reference sources that were not clearly identified as integral to the content, many editors would dismiss these as unnecessary. I did try to incorporate the large listing but I could not identify a bibliographic style guide that was being used. If an article is stable and has a long-standing style of citations and references, unless there is a need to revise or alter that style, than the new editors are expected to conform to the standards that are in use. FWiW Bzuk (talk) 21:17, 28 February 2010 (UTC).

As to my credentials, I am an editor for publishing houses, and an author with 10 books in print, so I am not making arbitrary judgments as to referencing and citing materials. FWiW Bzuk (talk) 12:04, 2 March 2010 (UTC).

Stop hand nuvola.svg Your addition to The Flintstones has been removed, as it appears to have added copyrighted material to Wikipedia without permission from the copyright holder.

{{cquote}}[edit]

I have again changed the use of {{cquote}} in Al Capp to {{quote}}. Per the WP:MOS, cquote is to be used only with pull quotes, which none of the quotes is. --EEMIV (talk) 16:59, 21 January 2011 (UTC)

Talk:Shmoo#Evolution[edit]

An editor has asked for assistance, thier complaint is that you won't discuss why you are reverting them on the article Shmoo. Could you go to Talk:Shmoo#Evolution and explain why you don't feel the information belongs in the article? Thanks. ~~ GB fan ~~ 13:34, 14 February 2011 (UTC)

In addition, it is never appropriate to threaten a good faith contributor with blocking. You may inform an editor that they are violating policy, but it helps if you identify that policy. Regards, Danger (talk) 19:14, 21 February 2011 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited List of fictional countries, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Don't Drink the Water (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Talkback[edit]

Hello, Rackinfrackin. You have new messages at Talk:Heckle and Jeckle.
Message added Sarujo (talk) 18:57, 20 February 2012 (UTC). You can remove this notice at any time by removing the {{Talkback}} or {{Tb}} template.

February 2012[edit]

Your recent editing history at Heckle and Jeckle shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. Being involved in an edit war can result in you being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.

To avoid being blocked, instead of reverting please consider using the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection. Toddst1 (talk) 19:42, 22 February 2012 (UTC)
