I thought that you might find it interesting that there are some rumors going around about the Ica Stones that in truth when Basilio Uschuya admitted to faking the Ica Stones he was threatened with some sort of punishment toward himself and his family by the local national government if he didn't admit to faking the Ica Stones. I don't know if it is the truth but it would be interesting thing to investigate if the government was actually using some force in order to fill some personal agenda. Possibly instead of taking the governments word on the issue some expert on the field such as Smithsonian Institute should investigate for themselves.KJames94 (talk) 22:11, 18 February 2015 (UTC)

Wrestling WHC flowchart[edit]

Hi, I like the flowchart you made to show the history of wrestling world championships. Can I ask what software you used? I'd like to make a similar chart showing the early 20th century world titles and would want the two to match. Ozdarka (talk) 08:31, 23 August 2015 (UTC)

Hi, sorry for the late reply -- I've been off Wikipedia for a while. I used an iPad app called PureFlow, although it's not actually all that great. Honestly, you'd be better off using the flowchart templates in Microsoft Excel or Word. — Richard BB 16:32, 14 November 2015 (UTC)
I appreciate your response, thank you. Ozdarka (talk) 23:54, 14 November 2015 (UTC)

User page vandalism[edit]

I see that the IP editor who has recently been vandalising your user page has done so off and on since at least as far back as June 2014, and there have been disruptive IP edits (probably from other editors) for more than three years. I have taken the liberty of indefinitely semi-protecting the page. If for any reason you don't want the protection please let me know, and I will unprotect it, but it seems to me best to keep it protected. If you like, I can semi-protect your talk page too, but I regard talk-page protection as a last resort, and even then only for a limited time, as there are often legitimate reasons for new or unregistered editors to post to a user's talk page.

Thanks for the semi-protection of my user page. Protecting my talk page won't be necessary -- thanks for the offer though. — Richard BB 15:32, 23 November 2015 (UTC)

Consult on an Edit?[edit]

Hi Richard! A while back I wanted to make an edit to the Battle of Gettysburg page, but it was struck down. The reasoning was fine but a bit of an edit-war erupted (it was probably both because the main editors of that page were a little possessive and I was probably a bit stubborn :) This time I want to add some information from a professor of mine who taught Civil War history, but to avoid another conflict (no pun intended) I wanted to consult an admin first. Can I run my changes past you first? Thanks if I can! SuperAnth (talk) 16:39, 10 December 2015 (UTC)

Well, you can if you want – but I'm not actually an admin! — Richard BB 17:52, 10 December 2015 (UTC)
lol perhaps not, but you offered sage council the last time I ended up in a Flame War and I appreciate that. Also I'd like to get a third-party involved before I try to make any changes, and you're pretty much the ideal third-party with your experience making edits. I'd also be happy to include a Wiki Admin if you'd be able to recommend one. SuperAnth (talk) 15:55, 11 December 2015 (UTC)

New deal for page patrollers[edit]

Hi Richard BB,

In order to better control the quality of new pages, keep out the spam, and welcome the genuine newbies, the current system we introduced in 2011 is being updated and improved. The documentation and tutorials have also been revised and given a facelift. Most importantly a new user group New Page Reviewer has been created.

Under the new rule, you may find that you are temporarily unable to mark new pages as reviewed. However, this is nothing to worry about - most current experienced patrollers are being accorded the the new right without the need to apply, and if you have significant previous experience of patrolling new pages, we strongly encourage you to apply for the new right as soon as possible - we need all the help we can get, and we are now providing a dynamic, supportive environment for your work.

Find out more about this exiting new user right now at New Page Reviewers and be sure to read the new tutorial before applying. MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 04:29, 13 November 2016 (UTC)
