Hello, Spongefrog! Just stopping by to say hello. Hope everything is going well for you, both on and off wiki. I am still busy irl, but I still remember you guys. =P

Meaghan has given you a cookie cake! Cookie cakes promote WikiLove and hopefully this one has made your day better.

I'm sure Coldplay will come thank you later, but thanks for helping out at World War II Nikkimaria (talk) 04:56, 6 March 2010 (UTC)
Oh my flipping God. We did it. We really did it :) (PS:You've got a message from me on my talk page)--Coldplay Expért Let's talk 04:58, 6 March 2010 (UTC)
Nice work Spongefrog Face-grin.svg - Kingpin13 (talk) 07:52, 6 March 2010 (UTC)
AArgh! (the good kind of "AArgh!") A barnstar too! This is too much...me poor old heart can't take it... Lord Spongefrog, (I am Czar of all Russias!) 13:27, 6 March 2010 (UTC)
Oh, and thanks, Lord Spongefrog, (I am Czar of all Russias!) 13:27, 6 March 2010 (UTC)

I've got it

Well now that WWII is a GA, I've been looking for another article that we can work on. I've taken a look at Eastern Front (World War II), Battle of France, World War I and others but I think that Battle of the Netherlands is the next one we shoudl get to GA status. I attempted a GA of it back in november but it failed. We need the citations fixed along with adding other citations. I've got the adding citations part down but I'll need you to go around and fix the existing ones. This time, I'm not going to skip around and abandon the project like I have with other ones. I'll work on it all of the way until it gets to GA status.--Coldplay Expért Let's talk 20:46, 6 March 2010 (UTC)

I'm on it! Actually I'm not. But I will be tomorrow! Don't worry about abandoning things halfway, you can always come back them; it's good to have a few things going at once. Otherwise you run out of stuff to do, like me, Lord Spongefrog, (I am Czar of all Russias!) 20:57, 6 March 2010 (UTC)
I'm going to start uploading maps showing the occupation of the Netherlands day by day. I started on it a while ago but stoped. Anyway, I'll see you working there tomorrow.--Coldplay Expért Let's talk 21:09, 6 March 2010 (UTC)

User Page

Hey, you're using one of these now! Why didn't you make your userboxes transparent though? Do you not know how?-Jakkinx 20:51, 7 March 2010 (UTC)

Nice to see you're back. And yeah, my old colours looked a bit...tacky. I imagine everyone'll have this format in, say, seven years. There's still one or two tweaks I need to make to it, I'll transparent-ificate(?) the userboxen then (though you can do it for me if you like (:). Nice image though, isn't it. It's fire!! Lord Spongefrog, (I am Czar of all Russias!) 20:59, 7 March 2010 (UTC)
I love the image, I'm so jealous of it :) I might get around to making the Userboxes transparent in the next few days. You can add more, you know. I also need to get my signature working...it's so messed up...-Jakkinx 21:20, 7 March 2010 (UTC)
And also, my userpage has a picture of a sunset. December21st2012Freak Talk to me at 21:25, 7 March 2010 (UTC)
Lol. I actually think I had that one for a while...but then I switched to a different sunset, and just recently, I switched to a fire picture. Yours was a meteor before, wasnt it?-Jakkinx/Talk|Sign! 00:30, 8 March 2010 (UTC)
Done. Let me know if there are any problems.-Jakkinx|Talk|Sign! 07:16, 16 March 2010 (UTC)

Robbie Ray Cyrus

This redirect resulted from a now-blocked sockpuppeteer creating an article at Robbie Ray Cyrus which was a copypasta of Billy Ray Cyrus with some false info (mostly false chart positions) added. Ten Pound Hammer, his otters and a clue-bat • (Many ottersOne batOne hammer) 21:04, 7 March 2010 (UTC)

Ah...right. Thanks. Funny coincidence though (if it is one). I thought there might be some retarget potential, but maybe not, Lord Spongefrog, (I am Czar of all Russias!) 21:06, 7 March 2010 (UTC)

For all the work put into Redirects for Discussion and for the insight offered on different navigational parts of the project. What seems like minor work no doubt has grand effects on the projects readers! Thanks for your work in the area, Taelus (talk) 23:24, 19 March 2010 (UTC)
Wow. I didn't know I was that appreciated. Thanks, Taelus, that should keep my morale up, Lord Spongefrog, (I am Czar of all Russias!) 09:26, 20 March 2010 (UTC)

Help on New Mexico

Hello, Spongefrog. I am working on getting New Mexico to GA class. White Shadows reviewed the article, and he suggested asking you to help me. So, would you please help me improve that article? Thank you for your consideration. NERDYSCIENCEDUDE (✉ messagechanges) 04:23, 28 March 2010 (UTC)

Right, I'll take a look (I'm actually an extremely inactive member of Wikipedia:WikiProject New Mexico for some reason, helping here'll clear my conscience). I'm generally only good for formatting/cleanup sort of stuff, etc (specifically to references), so I can't expand/write too much, but I'll do what I can, Lord Spongefrog, (I am Czar of all Russias!) 11:51, 28 March 2010 (UTC)

Oh, yeah. Real funny Meaghan. I was hoping for some rant by an angry troll, there. Nah, really it's okay. Thanks for interesting-ificating my dust-gathering talk page, Lord Spongefrog, (I am Czar of all Russias!) 10:19, 2 April 2010 (UTC)

Whoa...

As of my birthday, I now have more overall edits and live edits than you. And yet you joined Wikipedia 5 months before me....This proves that I need a life.--White Shadows you're breaking up 04:39, 3 April 2010 (UTC)

I have more live (and deleted) edits than both of you, and I have the same amount of live edits as you, White Shadows. December21st2012Freak Talk to me at 05:09, 3 April 2010 (UTC)
(edit conflict) You think you need a life? Anyway, I only started editing in December 2009, and I'm well over 4,000 edits. Maybe I also need a life. NERDYSCIENCEDUDE (✉ messagechanges) 05:10, 3 April 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, I've slowed down, and you've overtook me. Pretty busy IRL, right now. Look at the "Click & drag horizontally to see detail" edit chart on my Wikichecker, it's so depressing. I'm back to my activity level of about...this time a year ago. I'll make it my long-term goal to catch up with you again :-) Lord Spongefrog, (I am Czar of all Russias!) 09:51, 3 April 2010 (UTC)
Actually, that counter you linked says I stil have of one more edit than you (well, two now)! Just one (including deleted, which I count because of WP:NPP some people do)! Lord Spongefrog, (I am Czar of all Russias!) 10:33, 3 April 2010 (UTC)
Oh just wait until I make 60+ edits in an effort to expand U-46! It's only a paragraph but It has teh potential to be as long as this. But it doe'nt matter anyway, your edit count is a meaningless statistic.--White Shadows you're breaking up 14:12, 3 April 2010 (UTC)
Exactly. Meaningless statistic. Well said...must make edits edits edits can't let him beat me it's so close make edits Lord Spongefrog, (I am Czar of all Russias!) 16:20, 3 April 2010 (UTC)

Uncharted characters

Thank you for the help filling in details in the article! I have not actually watched all of Eye of Indra, so I was mostly relying on summaries and articles from reliable gaming sites. It's nice for it to be fleshed out from someone who knows more about the motion comics. かんぱい! Scapler (talk) 19:44, 5 April 2010 (UTC)

Oh, you're welcome. I've got it downloaded from PSN for some reason, so I'll try and add in some quotes tomorrow to back it all up if that's okay. Good job with the cleanup, BTW, it's much less random and "crufty" than how I remember it used to be, Lord Spongefrog, (I am Czar of all Russias!) 19:50, 5 April 2010 (UTC)
Thank you. I'm about to add creation and reception info too. かんぱい! Scapler (talk) 19:52, 5 April 2010 (UTC)
Right, I'll not be editing for a while after this, so don't worry about the edit conflicts. Are you trying to get it to featured list class or something? (and what the dsvjvf does かんぱい mean?) Lord Spongefrog, (I am Czar of all Russias!) 19:56, 5 April 2010 (UTC)
My ultimate goal is FL, yeah. And かんぱい (kanpai) roughly means "cheers" in Japanese, which is what my signature used to say in English. かんぱい! Scapler (talk) 20:25, 5 April 2010 (UTC)

Alex Rider

Little rant here – if you haven't already, can you watchlist all of the novel articles and periodically check up on them? for some reason they seem to attract childish vandalism. The coherence of the Stormbreaker plot slowly broke down over the past nine months, and in the Eagle Strike one someone had written "you can find out if you read the book". Like, what in the world? I just watchlisted all of them but I could use another pair of eyes. Thanks. hbdragon88 (talk) 04:03, 11 May 2010 (UTC)

I know exactly what you mean, it often goes weeks without being noticed too. I guess it must be due to the less mature part of the target audience. I had to request protection for Skeleton Key (novel) at one point, but that was a while back. Anyways, I've got a few watchlisted already for that reason, but I'll be happy to add the rest, Lord Spongefrog, (I am Czar of all Russias!) 10:10, 11 May 2010 (UTC)

Grab some glory, and a barnstar

Hi, I'd like to invite you to participate in the Guild of Copy Editors July 2010 Backlog Elimination Drive. In May, about 30 editors helped remove the {{copyedit}} tag from 1175 articles. The backlog is still over 7500 articles, and extends back to the beginning of 2008! We really need your help to reduce it. Copyediting just a couple articles can qualify you for a barnstar. Serious copyeditors can win prestigious and exclusive rewards. See the event page for more information. And thanks for your consideration. monosock 03:28, 12 June 2010 (UTC)

Ah hell, I'd love to. But I really don't have the time to commit to anything right now. Unbelievably, ridiculously busy irl, Spongefrog, (I am Czar of all Russias!) 21:31, 12 June 2010 (UTC)

Reviewer user-right

Redaktor Wikipedia 600px.png

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, will be commencing a two-month trial at approximately 23:00, 2010 June 15 (UTC).

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under flagged protection. Flagged protection 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.

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. – B.hoteptalk• 22:28, 15 June 2010 (UTC)

Sure, they finally got the damn flagged revs, but did it really have to be the same day I semi-retire??? Well, maybe I'll be back around July-ish. Thanks for the rights/message anyways, Bubba, Spongefrog, (I am Czar of all Russias!) 20:47, 16 June 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, I sort of did it pre-emptively, so that when you come back, you'll be ready to go! – B.hoteptalk• 20:49, 16 June 2010 (UTC)

A gift for your return

Hello, spongefrog, long time no see. I know you are gone, so I have a gift for you for when you return--A userbox that I created:

Milk glass.jpg This user drinks so much milk, his bones can cut diamonds.

Think of it as a return for the favor which I asked of you so long ago: to use some of your userboxes.

I know this is not about wikipedia, but I couldn't help it. I do try to be good...maybe I should retire too. I think I will, because I never do anything on here now days. I will say my good by's now, because I may never be back. See you who knows when! Paperfork 15:38, 5 August 2010 (UTC)

I have that one already...but thanks anyway, Spongefrog, (I am Czar of all Russias!) 12:33, 11 September 2010 (UTC)
