For your work[edit]

Million award logo.svg The Million Award
For your contributions to bring Cary Grant (estimated annual readership: 500,000) to Good Article status, I hereby present you the Half Million Award. Congratulations on this rare accomplishment, and thanks for all you do for Wikipedia's readers! We hope (talk) 11:42, 28 June 2016 (UTC)

That's very kind of you thank you, but I really did little more than a good copyedit - the extent of a PR, nothing more. Still, it really is most welcome! Cheers - SchroCat (talk) 11:45, 28 June 2016 (UTC)

You were the voice of reason and action in the face of much soapboxing madness. :-D We hope (talk) 11:49, 28 June 2016 (UTC)

Hear hear! Yes it's due a formal PR sometime but not sure I can be bothered right now as I suspect it would turn into an infobox argument! Struggling to feel bothered to continue with Audrey! Annual readership of that is nearer 2 million odd!♦ Dr. Blofeld 17:32, 28 June 2016 (UTC)

Bibliography formatting at Walt Disney[edit]

They're not required by the MoS but the indents do, in my opinion, improve the legibility of bibliographies and make them look more like ones you find in printed books. I made similar changes to the featured article on Marilyn Monroe and they were welcomed there, but to each their own! It's heartening to see articles as important as Disney's at featured status in 2016, so thanks for your work on it. Ham II (talk) 18:10, 29 June 2016 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) I don't think this helps the article at all. CassiantoTalk 19:14, 29 June 2016 (UTC)
Both styles accomplish exactly what they set out to do, but based purely on aesthetic preference I would opt for the bullet style too. Betty Logan (talk) 20:47, 29 June 2016 (UTC)
AFAIK, WP has no way to automatically create hanging indents, and the artificial line breaks are, indeed horrible. There are times that WP formatting and MOS differs from, say, MLA or Chicago style, and there is no bright line rule that says otherwise. Montanabw(talk) 17:58, 1 July 2016 (UTC)
  • Hi Ham, I guess the three responses (all unprompted by me) have echoed my thoughts on the matter. I think the extant version is more common on Wiki – and that's one of the reasons your changed jarred so,much on viewing. Aesthetically I have to say that I don't like it at all. Thanks for your explanation though: much appreciated. Cheers – SchroCat (talk) 05:58, 2 July 2016 (UTC)


Enough. I have better things to do than argue the toss here. I'm enjoying writing about one of the most inspiring individuals I've ever come across, and I don't need any further silliness to spoil my mood. - SchroCat (talk) 15:57, 6 July 2016 (UTC)

Why do you think you get to pick and choose what gets discussion at RfA? Collapsing an entire discussion is on thing, but picking out comments from someone you don't think much of reeks of bias. HighInBC Need help? {{ping|HighInBC}} 15:27, 6 July 2016 (UTC)

The comment was not being 'picked out' because it was yours per se. You tried to re-kindle something a few days after it came to a natural close and after it had been moved onto a different page (to an extent that looks like you're going behind someone's back as well). You know it's baiting, I know it's baiting, and you, as an admin, should learn when not to try and stir up a shit pot for absolutely no reason. The only bias here is that I don't like tendentious editing where the sole purpose is to goad someone into making an inappropriate comment. It's time you backed away from Cassianto as the very clear pattern of your behaviour is worryingly obvious. - SchroCat (talk) 15:33, 6 July 2016 (UTC)
All I know is that a lot of things are being said about people, but when anyone asks for this to be substantiated any tactic is used to avoid answering. It really is transparent.
My most recent interaction with Cassianto was me choosing not to respond to their disruption so your theory that I live to taunt him has a few holes in it. You tend to defend Cassianto regardless of the legitimacy of the situation so perhaps you should consider that you may be too close to the situation. HighInBC Need help? {{ping|HighInBC}} 15:39, 6 July 2016 (UTC)
There are no holes in what I think about you and your approach. This is quite a coverage of interaction, given you do feck all in the way of content work. And yet you magically 'appear' in situations where Cassianto is present. Odd that, isn't it. As to the Mccandlish situation, even you would be hard pressed to hand out some form of punitive action, given just how much baiting Cassianto received and how quickly a block would have been overturned when the evidence would have been presented at ANI.
Chillum, Have you thought that you may be too close to the situation (I know I am close, but I actually write articles with Cass, I don't dream up ways to block him)? Have you ever thought that you may be the one who is at fault from time to time? You are happy enough to lecture and bully-block, but have you thought that this may not be the most constructive approach to take? If you stopped stalking his edits and stopped harrassing him it would do everyone a damned good turn. There are over a 1,000 other active admins who are willing and able to take difficult decisions, and yet it's always magically you who is happy enough to get your knee into the groin first. - SchroCat (talk) 15:49, 6 July 2016 (UTC)

Another TFL notification[edit]

Hi SchroCat. I scheduled Works of Keith Floyd for an August 5 main page appearance. The blurb is here for you to tweak as desired. Cheers. Giants2008 (Talk) 22:12, 11 July 2016 (UTC)

Cheers Giants, much appreciated. - SchroCat (talk) 07:25, 12 July 2016 (UTC)

Latin Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award FLC[edit]

Hey, you marked this one as closed in the Closure log, but it doesn't look like you actually closed the nom, nor added it and Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna to WP:FL. Didn't know if you just got called away in the middle of it or what, but thought I'd remind you. --PresN 02:13, 14 July 2016 (UTC)

  • Thanks PresN. (I got distracted mid way through - I knew I shouldn't have started doing that when I was expecting a call from a client!) - SchroCat (talk) 06:26, 14 July 2016 (UTC)

Tinton5's edit warring[edit]

Tell me why the middle name cannot be included in the infobox? This is a common practice on this site. See pages Michael Moore and Nicole Kidman for examples. They have their middle names inside the box. Why make an exception here? Tinton5 (talk) 21:34, 14 July 2016 (UTC)

This is not the right place to discuss the matter. There is a thread on the talk page, (which is where you should have gone after the first time you were reverted, per WP:BRD. – SchroCat (talk) 21:36, 14 July 2016 (UTC)
