Please indent your posts with one more ":" than what you are replying to, i.e. begin with ":" if replying to an existing topic and "::" if replying to a reply.
I will generally respond here to comments that are posted here, rather than replying via your Talk page (or the article Talk page, if you are writing to me here about an article), so you may want to watch this page until you are responded to, or specifically let me know where you'd prefer the reply.
This is a Wikipediauser talk page. This is not an encyclopedia article or the talk page for an encyclopedia article. If you find this page on any site other than Wikipedia, you are viewing a mirror site. Be aware that the page may be outdated and that the user whom this page is about may have no personal affiliation with any site other than Wikipedia.

I noticed you declined an AFD deletion completion request with the words "AFDHOWTO was not followed" and doubled down with this.
Please respond to these requests politely and accurately.
It doesn't take a lot of time to explain which part of WP:AFDHOWTO wasn't followed. It doesn't take a lot of time to do it yourself. Please do not, when asked about the details of a problem, resort to WP:SFOD. If someone didn't understand a lot of policy text and you can explain the problem, please do it.Lurking shadow (talk) 15:21, 10 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Articles you might like to edit, from SuggestBot
We are currently running a study to evaluate the effectiveness of alternative algorithms for providing personalized task recommendations through SuggestBot. Participation in the study is voluntary. Should you wish to not participate in the study, or have questions or concerns, you can find contact information in the consent information sheet.
Note: All columns in this table are sortable, allowing you to rearrange the table so the articles most interesting to you are shown at the top. All images have mouse-over popups with more information. For more information about the columns and categories, please consult the documentation and please get in touch on SuggestBot's talk page with any questions you might have.
SuggestBot picks articles in a number of ways based on other articles you've edited, including straight text similarity, following wikilinks, and matching your editing patterns against those of other Wikipedians. It tries to recommend only articles that other Wikipedians have marked as needing work. We appreciate that you have signed up to receive suggestions regularly; your contributions make Wikipedia better — thanks for helping!
Upcoming deletion of user script you're importing
Hi. I will soon be requesting the deletion of a user script (User:Fred Gandt/linkRedirectTitle.js) I developed but no longer wish to maintain. You currently have the importation code for the script in your common.js (commented out) so, if at some time in the future you might want to use that code, you will need to take your own copy. If you want to do that, but do not know how, please reply here and I will assist you. Cheers Fred Gandt · talk · contribs 03:12, 17 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Probably should leave the spacing in citation templates alone
The default spacing in several of the citation templates was changed a while ago (cite web, for example, uses spaces around both pipes and equals now). The default is automatically used by some bots and enforced by the visual editor. Removing it (example) might ultimately prove to be as pointless as edit-warring with a bot. The next time someone using the visual editor changes anything in that citation template, the spaces you removed will all automatically be restored.

might ultimately prove to be as pointless as edit-warring with a bot made me chuckle. Nice turn of phrase too 👍 Fred Gandt · talk · contribs 20:05, 28 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to impose binding solutions to disputes between editors, primarily for serious conduct disputes the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the authority to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail.
