French Open results[edit]

Please don't add information about French Open results until a player actually loses. The infobox is for their best performance in their career, and we have no idea who will win or lose in the first round at Roland Garros yet, as the tournament is yet to start. SHould a player actually lose in the first round, your edits would be correct, but right now, they are not. Courcelles 18:40, 20 May 2011 (UTC)

Hmm... ok then... but they reached at least in the first round. But let's wait then, when they loses. --Stryn(t) 18:50, 20 May 2011 (UTC)

Hey, why did you change the French Open? She is going to be #7 in the world on Monday confirmed. - me (talk) 04:54, 3 July 2011 (UTC)

Yes, she is going to be, but is not yet. Wait for Monday... --Stryn (talk) 05:02, 3 July 2011 (UTC)

Whyyyyyyy do you care soooo much? It's one day. I don't see what you get out of changing things that are going to CONFIRMED happen...? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:08, 3 July 2011 (UTC)

I don't care anymore. But Novak Djokovic article had the same "problem": Talk:Novak_Djokovic#Ranking, and it is now protected [2]. --Stryn (talk) 05:13, 3 July 2011 (UTC)

Unsourced chart peaks[edit]

Hi there. here and here you updated a peak which does not appear on the source quoted. The source may not be up to date with the latest, but please don't add peaks which cannot be verified. Best regards. --Muhandes (talk) 14:05, 16 September 2011 (UTC)

Ok, I hate this website, because it will be updated so slow. is fastest and you will find the chart peaks from there, e.g. Get Back (ASAP. --Stryn (talk) 14:10, 16 September 2011 (UTC)

Cool I found you a pic related to Amanda and Victoria Duval as a pressy Victuallers (talk) 19:00, 2 September 2012 (UTC)
Hi Stryn - the way to load pictures into commons is to use this link. Main problem is to convince everyone that you have the copyright. Its easy if it is YOUR picture. Can you persuade your new freind to load the picture for you? Otherwise you need to do a bit of form filling. I do like your articles Victuallers (talk) 19:29, 6 September 2012 (UTC)


I was just preparing to add the Finnish link to the Rupriikki Media Museum and saw you did it! Thank you. I am actually in Helsinki at a conference and I'm sitting with a group of Finnish Wikipedians editing :) SarahStierch (talk) 14:03, 18 September 2012 (UTC)

Your request for rollback[edit]

Wikipedia Rollbacker.svg

Hi Stryn. After reviewing your request for rollback, I have enabled rollback on your account. Keep in mind these things when going to use rollback:

  • Getting rollback is no more momentous than installing Twinkle.
  • Rollback should be used to revert clear cases of vandalism only, and not good faith edits.
  • Rollback should never be used to edit war.
  • If abused, rollback rights can be revoked.
  • Use common sense.

If you no longer want rollback, contact me and I'll remove it. Also, for some more information on how to use rollback, see Wikipedia:New admin school/Rollback (even though you're not an admin). I'm sure you'll do great with rollback, but feel free to leave me a message on my talk page if you run into troubles or have any questions about appropriate/inappropriate use of rollback. Thank you for helping to reduce vandalism. Happy editing! Malinaccier (talk) 21:38, 5 March 2013 (UTC)

Wikipedia Reviewer.svg

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. The list of articles awaiting review is located at Special:PendingChanges. A full list of articles that have pending changes protection turned on will be at Special:StablePages.

Being granted reviewer rights neither grants you status nor changes how you can edit articles. If you do not want this user right, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time.

John Hanson Edits[edit]

Hello Stryn, As I told Kevin Myers, I am brand new to Wikipedia and trying to understand how to play by the rules. I have sources for the changes that I made, but I am perplexed how to figure out what edit each "UNDO" is referring to so I can add the source?

Linda Lindwald (talk) 23:12, 8 March 2013 (UTC)lindwald 18:11 8 March 2013

Hello and Welcome to Wikipedia! I think that you got the answer on Kevin Myers' talk page. I just deleted vandalism from the article. :) --Stryn (talk) 07:33, 9 March 2013 (UTC)

Article Feedback deployment[edit]

Hey Stryn; I'm dropping you this note because you've used the article feedback tool in the last month or so. On Thursday and Friday the tool will be down for a major deployment; it should be up by Saturday, failing anything going wrong, and by Monday if something does :). Thanks, Okeyes (WMF) (talk) 23:27, 13 March 2013 (UTC)

Bombing–filmed death cat[edit]

I'm not sure I understand why you removed the "Filmed deaths in sports" category from 2013 Boston Marathon bombings. Could you explain? AutomaticStrikeout (TCSign AAPT) 22:48, 15 April 2013 (UTC)

I think I misunderstood what it means, but now I think that I got it. I restored it. --Stryn (talk) 22:51, 15 April 2013 (UTC)
Thanks. It's definitely easy to see why someone would get confused editing that article, with all the activity going on there. AutomaticStrikeout (TCSign AAPT) 22:53, 15 April 2013 (UTC)

Tonight I'm Gettiung Over You[edit]

But her surname is Rae Jepsen, correct? ˜˜˜˜ — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 10:46, 18 June 2013 (UTC)

No, her surname is Jepsen, Rae is part of her given name. --Stryn (talk) 11:08, 18 June 2013 (UTC)


I normally answer such questions when I can be around but I was very limited last week in the amount of time I could spend online.

Your help desk question was not fully answered. While I know absolutely nothing about the technical side of Wikipedia, I do know that the people who do might be able to answer your question at the technical Village Pump.— Vchimpanzee · talk · contributions · 20:26, 26 June 2013 (UTC)

I know that. I will ask this same question maybe later there. Thanks for reminding. --Stryn (talk) 20:35, 26 June 2013 (UTC)

Biological system?[edit]

I actually don't remember ever having even looked at said page, but if I somehow made an error, I'm glad you fixed it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Xenophonscitroen (talkcontribs) 20:21, 5 August 2013 (UTC)

I guess you saw ip's talk page message. So if you have ip which changes, it propably was not meant to you. --Stryn (talk) 20:31, 5 August 2013 (UTC) and singlechart[edit]

Hi! (I'm not sure if the Wikipedia currently notifies about these, but anyway.) In case you haven't noticed, I edited the singlechart template, so that is the source for chart peaks and chart processions in Finland. However, as I wrote there, featured songs cause difficulties. :) -- Puisque (talk) 15:37, 31 August 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for making those edits. Well, those broken links which came after changes, needs just checking and fix them. --Stryn (talk) 16:56, 31 August 2013 (UTC)

Name of Capitol Shooting Incident article[edit]

There are two other articles involving earlier shooting incidents:

  1. United States Capitol shooting incident (1954)
  2. United States Capitol shooting incident (1998).

Should the name of the current name, 2013 United States Capitol shooting incident, be changed back to United States Capitol shooting incident (2013) for the sake of consistency?

Is there a standard for naming such events?—GoldRingChip 19:03, 3 October 2013 (UTC)

Oh, I didn't know there was also other shooting incidents at the US Capitol... I don't know anything about how these should be named. I just saw 2012 Aurora shooting. I don't mind if you move this one back to United States Capitol shooting incident (2013). --Stryn (talk) 19:06, 3 October 2013 (UTC)
  • OK. I'll change it back. —GoldRingChip 19:18, 3 October 2013 (UTC)

mean?--SPhilbrick(Talk) 12:48, 24 October 2013 (UTC)

As you can see from the file history, file is not on the English Wikipedia, but in Commons. So it's just a test page which should be deleted. File is still on Commons. --Stryn (talk) 12:55, 24 October 2013 (UTC)

Vandalism against Ukraine in Wikipedia[edit]

Thank you for advice. But this is no matter what I will write to creator - he will do no reaction. It is possible his working for Russian FSB (which was known as KGB). The Article is wrong and there is time to discuss it deletetion. --Ipadm (talk) 14:00, 7 April 2014 (UTC)

Ok, but "Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia" texts does not belong to the article. That's it. --Stryn (talk) 14:02, 7 April 2014 (UTC)

Ok. Thanks a lot. --Wikijens (talk) 11:53, 23 April 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for your help and sorry if I gave you a lot of work. I thought you were an admin here, but probably I was confused with wikidata. --Wikijens (talk) 06:59, 25 April 2014 (UTC)

Suomenkielisestä Wikipediasta[edit]

Hei, huomasin että olet ylläpitäjä suomenkielisessä Wikipediassa. Voisitko poistaa fi-wikistä fi:Käyttäjä:Pudeo-käyttäjäsivuni sekä fi:Käyttäjä:Pudeo/Aloittamani artikkelit-alasivun? Yksityisyyssyistä haluaisin poiston. Täällä enkkuwikissä riittää ainakin käyttäjän oma pyyntö, fi-wikiin en voi enää kirjautua koska olen hävittänyt kirjautumistiedot. Käyttäjäsivuni yhtä versiota vanhemmassa versiossa on linkki tähän en-wikin tunnukseeni, jos haluat varmistuksen että olen sama käyttäjä. Yst. terv. --Pudeo' 06:15, 28 December 2014 (UTC)

Olet estänyt IP-osoitteeni muokkaamisen vandalismin vuoksi[edit]

Hei Stryn! Sain viestisi, että olet estänyt IP-osoitteestani muokkaamisen vandalismin vuoksi. En ole kuitenkaan tehnyt vandalismia. Olin muokkaamassa artikkelia Kari Peitsamo ja viestisi saatuani tekemäni muokkaukset katosivat, eli minun pitää kirjoittaa ne uudestaan. Kirjoitan nyt sinulle englanninkielisen sivun kautta, koska kehotit ottamaan yhteyden ylläpitäjään, jos olen syytön, ja suomenkielisellä sivulla en voi kirjoittaa. Voitko poistaa asettamasi eston? IP-osoitteeni on (, eston tunnus on (#1951649) ja eston kohde on ( IP-osoitteeni vaihtuu kun suljen tietokoneen, mutta tahtoisin muokata wikipediaa tämän päivän ajan tästä osoitteesta. (talk) 11:10, 7 February 2015 (UTC)

Hei! En ollut nimeomaisesti yrittänyt sinua estää, vaan erään pitkäaikaisen vandaalin, joka muokkaa samasta osoiteavaruudesta ( Eston asetin vain kahdeksi tunniksi, mutta otin sen nyt taas pois, joten muokkaaminen onnistunee ainakin nyt taas niin kauan kunnes estoa joudutaan taas laittamaan. Suosittelen sinua luomaan tunnuksen Wikipediaan, koska silloin nuo estot eivät koske sinua, ja pystyt muokkaamaan ihan normaalisti. --Stryn (talk) 11:19, 7 February 2015 (UTC)


This article contains wrong information (bio,age,music genre) (she's 22 not 23) it was made by a fan.. we've tried to change it but it's now blocked ..

This one in spanish is ok

I understand that it could be missunderstood because a fake bio was written by an unknown person but it needs to be changed

could you please help me? thank you very much — Preceding unsigned comment added by Targaryen12345 (talkcontribs) 13:00, 15 August 2015 (UTC)

Thank you for contacting me. I will try to help correct wrong information. Do you have any sources (any web sites or so, anything else than FB) where is told that she has born in 1993? --Stryn (talk) 13:04, 15 August 2015 (UTC)
Hi Targaryen12345, what do you say about User:Stryn/sandbox? It's a draft, and in this version I have removed birth date and some other unsourced information. --Stryn (talk) 17:29, 15 August 2015 (UTC)

Helloo!! Great!! Well , she actually did a song with novaemusik and held a license for one song with blanco y negro once but she did not get signed and she quit in the middle of the promo (you can't even find those songs on youtube anymore.. they were removed) .So I would omit that and leave just the current deal she has since 2012 with Sony ATV/EMI wich is the official one if it's ok . Thank you very much for your patience. I really appreciate that :) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Targaryen12345 (talkcontribs) 13:00, 15 August 2015 (UTC)

Thank you for the info. I pretty much liked "Animal", but yeah, it's not on YouTube anymore. I feel like it's my responsibility to correct the article as I'm the person who started the article here in 2012. I made these changes now to my draft. Is it ok now or something still should be corrected? --Stryn (talk) 08:10, 16 August 2015 (UTC)

Hi again thank you very much :) I submitted a draft with the official info the label gave me and I think we should leave it like that as long it is 100% verifiable.. what do you think? sorry for bothering — Preceding unsigned comment added by Targaryen12345 (talkcontribs) 13:31, 16 August 2015 (UTC)

Thanks. Well, you can't just remove those parts of texts where is told about "Midnight" and "Animal". We know that those singles have been released also, so they should be included in the article as they are also part of Santos' music career. --Stryn (talk) 13:39, 16 August 2015 (UTC)

okay let's say that they were featurings too please because they we're not released as a solo artist.. I mean the official ones — Preceding unsigned comment added by Targaryen12345 (talkcontribs) 13:43, 16 August 2015 (UTC)

Is it ok? :) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Targaryen12345 (talkcontribs) 16:27, 17 August 2015 (UTC)

Sorry I'm a bit busy... could you make the changes, because I'm not sure what do you mean? I will then check how does it look :) --Stryn (talk) 20:19, 17 August 2015 (UTC)

Terrorism support by editing Wikipedia articles[edit]

In case of your very strong position in Wikipedia you can edit articles and mark that changes as WP:POV pushing. But be careful when you do it in case of support of terrorists! The terrorists organizations like Donetsk People's Republic and Luhansk People's Republic is the same terrorists as the ISIS or Al-Qaeda, and when you made revert of the edit with clear definition about it - you directly supported them! There is only one Point of view possible on terrorism, if you disagree, them you support the terror --Ipadm (talk) 09:19, 28 December 2015 (UTC)

I was only reverting vandalism, and I don't think that it's called the same as supporting terrorism. --Stryn (talk) 20:27, 28 December 2015 (UTC)

Unsuccessful rename?[edit]

The user rename log shows that you renamed User:NeuroproteXeon to User:Macbflo. But subsequent edits are being attributed to the old name. Do you know what's going on? —Largo Plazo (talk) 02:17, 27 February 2016 (UTC)

No, I'm not really well versed here. I got a confirmation e-mail, but some of my messages still say neuro and some say macbflo, same with my edits. And the username when I sign in still says neuro.NeuroproteXeon (talk) 03:36, 27 February 2016 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Macbflo (talkcontribs)
Thank you for reporting. I have no idea what's going on... I have filed a bug report at Phab:T128276. --Stryn (talk) 14:15, 27 February 2016 (UTC)


I see you renamed this user after I performed a block. The rename resolves the block rationale and the user should be promptly unblocked by a reviewing administrator once the COI issues are also resolved. My question is regarding the rename request - I couldn't find it. Generally, if I see a user has gone after a rename, I might hold off on a block. So, to avoid me blocking someone with a pending rename request in the future, could you tell me where they requested the rename? Was it on meta?--v/r - TP 06:31, 7 April 2016 (UTC)

Hi TParis, you can find the global rename log at Meta. And there is a link to the request, but you don't have access to see the request. The request was left using the Special:GlobalRenameRequest. Regards, --Stryn (talk) 06:53, 7 April 2016 (UTC)
