Thank you for the rollback again. Its great to return to global war on vandalism! --Sidonuke (talk :: contribs) 18:44, 9 October 2009 (UTC)

Re your message: No problem. The seven day protection should cover the length of the AfD if the AfD is not closed early. -- Gogo Dodo (talk) 08:12, 10 October 2009 (UTC)


Hello, why was I warned? My edit was informative. (talk) 14:55, 10 October 2009 (UTC)

Reviewed my revert and your recent contributions. The warning I served was called for. Thank you! --Sidonuke (talk :: contribs) 15:00, 10 October 2009 (UTC)

American Signal Corporation[edit]

I WANTED this article to be deleted, I cannot verify proper info, people keep pissing at ME about it, no one is fixing it, abusive users are making life hard for me, and I'm very sick and tired of it.--JustInn014 (talk) 05:19, 11 October 2009 (UTC)

If you would like the article American Signal Corporation deleted then tag it properly conforming to the policies on WP:DEL. Please don't change other things on the article while tagging. --Sidonuke (talk :: contribs) 05:25, 11 October 2009 (UTC)

Alright, thanks for the help. --JustInn014 (talk) 05:26, 11 October 2009 (UTC)

Is it possible for someone else to delete the page? I'm not understanding how the deletion policy works... --JustInn014 (talk) 05:33, 11 October 2009 (UTC)

The process works by tagging an article for deletion using the proper reason then an administrator will review the deletion request and act on it appropriated. (At least in a nutshell that is) --Sidonuke (talk :: contribs) 05:35, 11 October 2009 (UTC)
I do not think that this article will qualify for speedy deletion, thus it will not be an administrator’s decision. It could qualify for a deletion discussion, in which case, it would be the Wikipedia community that decides, with an administrator making the final decision as to deletion consensus. The process for starting a deletion discussion is outlined at WP:AFD. But, JustInn, I wouldn’t worry about it: Eventually some deletionist will come along and do it for you, if the article truly cries out for deletion. If you don’t want to edit it anymore, just take it off of your watchlist and stop editing it. By the way, I ended up here because I followed the Huggle trail to this discussion. — SpikeToronto 05:51, 11 October 2009 (UTC)
Heh, I didn't bother explaining it in detail but thanks for that. --Sidonuke (talk :: contribs) 05:54, 11 October 2009 (UTC)

I see now. I'll just wait for a more experienced deletionist to come by and delete it. Thanks for the help. --JustInn014 (talk) 07:30, 13 October 2009 (UTC)

Green Roofs Page[edit]

Sidonuke - Help ! :-) I noticed you have been editting the green roofs page. I have an image from the Green Roof referred to in the wikipedia text on Green Roofs in Greece and have been trying to upload it without success . Could you tell me how to do it - My email is My Facebook account is Andrew Michael Clements

Andrew —Preceding unsigned comment added by Andrew Michael Clements (talkcontribs) 15:52, 11 October 2009 (UTC)

Sorry I wouldn't remember an exact process on how to do it at this time but when I get a chance I'll look it up. --Sidonuke (talk :: contribs) 19:44, 11 October 2009 (UTC)


This subject was written by a Brazilian who does not have a good command of English. Don't get me wrong, I'm not against Brazilians - my wife is Brazilian. However, the English is often ungrammatical and even incomprehensible. My wife and I are trying to clean up an article on a subject we both love - samba. We understand what the writer is attempting to say and want to clean up the article to make it not only authoritative but also well-written. This was acknowledged by an editor who deleted the second graf because its English was so jumbled. Please do not consider that clearly articulating the language, including using proper adjectives (i.e., "icon" for "symbol") constitutes vandalism. I would like to work on this article graf by graf, but if my work will be reverted, what's the point. See if my edits are not an improvement before you delete them. Thanks. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:47, 11 October 2009 (UTC)

Your edits seemed unconstructive at the time. I suggest using edit summaries and adding a
tag to the page. Anyways sorry about interrupting your work. --Sidonuke (talk :: contribs) 19:46, 11 October 2009 (UTC)


If that IP does that again and I don't get it first, hit him with a level-four warning; that's probably Heyheymonkees (talk · contribs). HalfShadow (talk) 20:34, 11 October 2009 (UTC)

It seems that it may of been him but a level four warning should only be used on repeat vandals. For now I'll keep an eye on the IP and User. --Sidonuke (talk :: contribs) 20:38, 11 October 2009 (UTC)


read the casualties section. now its bullshit. i only did the same... —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:54, 11 October 2009 (UTC)

Reviewed your edit and it still appears that it was unconstructive. --Sidonuke (talk :: contribs) 22:56, 11 October 2009 (UTC)

Stephen Gately[edit]

An admin reverted your revert of two of my edits, as said edits were an improvement. Gayness 1 (talk) 23:47, 11 October 2009 (UTC)

Thank you for the notification of that mistake. I have retracted the warning I placed on your page. --Sidonuke (talk :: contribs) 23:51, 11 October 2009 (UTC)


You just reverted back to vandalism... Also, what version of Huggle are you using? I've never seen an edit summary like that from Huggle before... Until It Sleeps TC 13:51, 12 October 2009 (UTC)

Using a modified huggle to load a custom project configuration. I took the latest source from the google code page and recompiled a modded one. --Sidonuke (talk :: contribs) 13:54, 12 October 2009 (UTC)
What kind of modifications have you made, exactly? Sounds rather interesting. Until It Sleeps TC 13:56, 12 October 2009 (UTC)
Its rather complex. I see your on IRC, talk to me there (Sidonuke). --Sidonuke (talk :: contribs) 13:58, 12 October 2009 (UTC)

Racist edit/National Front Article[edit]

I'm well aware that what I wrote on the NF article is considered vandalism. It was however, in response to previous vandalism on that page which contained racist, homophobic and nationalist slurs in light of the recent events in Manchester. (talk) 14:00, 12 October 2009 (UTC)

Ok... --Sidonuke (talk :: contribs) 14:04, 12 October 2009 (UTC)

Who gives the right to people that censor comments on destructive sects to have the last word?

Ok, no attacks, but why tolerate that users paid by the sects to keep negative comments out, to censor other comments? Do you reacted to that change?

Regards Wikipedia lover. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:48, 16 April 2010 (UTC)

I just reverted what seems to of been a attack on the one editor. [this edit] Aside from that I don't support or censor anything if you have sources and references to back it up. --Sidonuke (talk :: contribs) 13:53, 16 April 2010 (UTC)

OK, but you do not want that user to know that others do not share his opinions and censorship? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:59, 16 April 2010 (UTC) please read some wiki policies, start with WP:FIVE.

Sidonuke, thanks for the revert but you didn't need to. Messages like that don't bother me. Sean.hoyland - talk 14:12, 16 April 2010 (UTC)


In case you didn't get around to actually reading it, the page at Teleforce is a joke. The sources are questionable and half the links are dead, and the article is full of speculative, unverifiable claims and original research. I'm surprised that someone can get that sort of crap past the radar in the first place, let alone that editors will actually work to make sure it stays there. So what can I do to get rid of stagnant, rubbish articles short of dedicating myself to writing an equally expansive new article with which to replace it? The talk page is clearly useless, and cutting out large chunks of the article is branded vandalism regardless of how low the quality of the article is to begin with. I shouldn't have to wait for a power user with some sense to come along and remove content that obviously doesn't belong.-- (talk) 15:00, 16 April 2010 (UTC)

Ok well, I've looked over it and read it a few times. From what I can see is that your making legitimate edits. I'm sorry to of labeled you incorrectly in this case. I guess I should slow down a bit. Thank you for the notification. --Sidonuke (talk :: contribs) 15:08, 16 April 2010 (UTC)

PC power management - reverted changes[edit]

Hello. You revereted changes with the comment "seems like a link spam". I made contribution to a table with exatly same fields as other 6 or 7 references. If you consider that my contribution is a spam, why did you keep other contribution? Is a free encyclopedia or not? I just added information relevant to the topic using the same pattern as others. So it can't be considered as a spam.

I didn't see anything also a previous editor saw it was link spam so I joined in. --Sidonuke (talk :: contribs) 15:31, 13 May 2010 (UTC)

Just a heads up, I corrected your signature on Wikipedia:Requests for adminship/Tide rolls. The double colons at the beginning of the links to your user page, talk page, and contribs were causing the report to have trouble parsing who had posted it.

You are now a Reviewer[edit]

Wikipedia Reviewer.svg

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, is currently undergoing a two-month trial scheduled to end 15 August 2010.

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under pending changes. Pending changes is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial. The list of articles with pending changes awaiting review is located at Special:OldReviewedPages.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles (talk) 18:09, 19 June 2010 (UTC)

Huggle is hosted on Google's code hosting service. Committing requires a Google account; you will need to create one and tell me what it is, by email if you don't want to write it here.
I'm not sure what "custom features" you changed in your version, but don't commit them unless you're confident they work as intended Gurch (talk) 17:58, 7 October 2010 (UTC)
Of course. Thats why I didn't put them out because of that. I'll be sure to only commit proper code. You can add as my google account. Sidonuke 20:53, 7 October 2010 (UTC)
Instructions for accessing the repository can be found here Gurch (talk) 14:39, 8 October 2010 (UTC)

I grabbed the source, and changed what you said for TTTSNB, etc etc... But it crashes in Debug Mode, saying that the drawing of queues had an error. The thing is, I disabled my queues in my personal Huggle.css. Any ideas? Allmightyduck  What did I do wrong? 20:59, 7 October 2010 (UTC)

Ummm that shouldn't happen. More details would be nice... Include the stack trace it gives or a link to a dump file.

Notification: changes to "Mark my edits as minor by default" preference[edit]

Hello there. This is an automated message to tell you about the gradual phasing out of the preference entitled "Mark all edits minor by default", which you currently have (or very recently had) enabled.

On 13 March 2011, this preference was hidden from the user preferences screen as part of efforts to prevent its accidental misuse (consensus discussion, guidelines for use at WP:MINOR). This had the effect of locking users in to their existing preference, which, in your case, was true. To complete the process, your preference will automatically be changed to false in the next few days. This does not require any intervention on your part and all users will still be able to manually mark their edits as being minor in the usual way.

For well-established users such as yourself there is a workaround available involving custom JavaScript. If you have any problems, feel free to drop me a note.

Thank you for your understanding and happy editing :) Editing on behalf of User:Jarry1250, LivingBot (talk) 20:53, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

STiki emergency[edit]

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability 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. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

New deal for page patrollers[edit]

Hi Zidonuke,

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) 04:30, 13 November 2016 (UTC)
