Betty Logan, I've just seen your post on samsara's talk page. As this is the second of the vocal editors to have been exposed for CANVASSing (Charl6 openly on talk pages, the WC by emailing at least one other), could you raise this on the ANI thread, or link this comment onto the thread. The underhand tactics involved in the whole affair really are rather sordid. I have no idea who was the sock master behind the various IP-hopping edits or SPA visitors, but there was too much going on for anyone to be happy with, which is why I stepped away for the last week. Thanks. – SchroCat (talk) 19:06, 19 November 2015 (UTC)

I've just come across this message. Weirdly it didn't ping me, I wonder if that's something to do with the block? Anyway, I will head over to ANI in a moment to relay my discoveries. With any luck you will wake up to freedom. Betty Logan (talk) 23:47, 19 November 2015 (UTC)
I don't know about you two, but my head is just fine. Although having said that, I did have a pain in the arse a few days ago. CassiantoTalk 01:05, 24 November 2015 (UTC)

Reverting on Spectre[edit]

I want to point out that you have made 3 reverts on Spectre (2015 film) today. Please take note of what I have just said on the talk page: Talk:Spectre_(2015_film)#Enough_with_the_edit_warring. The edit warring rules are going to be strictly enforced on that article so please be careful. HighInBC 17:54, 22 November 2015 (UTC)

HighInBC, I suggest you get the circumstances right once in a while and AGF once in a blue moon. – SchroCat (talk) 17:58, 22 November 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for the self revert. Notice it was within a minute of me posting here, I had not seen that. Also I was confusing the Spectre article with the Skyfall article. Sorry for the misunderstanding. HighInBC 18:04, 22 November 2015 (UTC)

Normal service resumed[edit]

Phew! It's uncomfortable when the lunatics take charge of the madhouse, and as one inmate to another I bid you a heartfelt welcome back. Tim riley talk 21:21, 22 November 2015 (UTC)

Many thanks, and nice to have something nice on my TP for a change! At least the break gave a bit of a spurt offline to the development of AWK. A small pause for two promised PRs before I crack on with it further. Pip pip – SchroCat (talk) 22:05, 22 November 2015 (UTC)

Normal incompetence revealed (Part 832)[edit]

Like Tim I'm mightily relieved that you're back, because I tend to rely on you to resolve technical issues that are beyond my feeble powers. On 8 December, Symphony No. 8 (Sibelius) will be TFA, in honour of the composer's 150th birthday. In checking the source links I find that two have died, those for refs 23 and 38. I know that there is a procedure for tracing web pages when the links have gone, but I don't know what it is; can you help? I'd be most grateful. Plenty of days in hand, so no particular rush.

Morning Brianboulton, All done. I sould be round to Bessie's article later too. Ceers - SchroCat (talk) 08:17, 23 November 2015 (UTC)
My goodness me! I am in awe of such effortless ability. A thousand thanks, and a metaphorical glass at the Wehwalt Arms. Brianboulton (talk) 09:54, 23 November 2015 (UTC)
Meta-bleeding-phorical? (an example of tmesis). To hell with that! Pour, oh pour the pirate sherry! Tim riley talk 16:50, 23 November 2015 (UTC)
