It tries to recommend only articles that other Wikipedians have marked as needing work. Your contributions make Wikipedia better -- thanks for helping.

If you have feedback on how to make SuggestBot better, please tell me on SuggestBot's talk page. Thanks from ForteTuba, SuggestBot's caretaker.

Doh! I forgot about you. I'll get on this today. MBisanz talk 14:15, 21 June 2008 (UTC)

Thank you. I checked his activity, and he seems to have came back, but he looks semi-inactive. TheDJAtClubRock :-) (T/C) 14:30, 21 June 2008 (UTC)

Alright - sorry, it seemed to just be stray junk. WilyD 02:29, 26 June 2008 (UTC)

Heh, it really isn't your fault, I've had to ask for undeletion about 3 times from others :P, TheDJAtClubRock :-) (T/C) 10:19, 26 June 2008 (UTC).

Why? --Tagishsimon (talk) 14:23, 26 June 2008 (UTC)

Well, looking back, it wasn't vandalism, but it was nonconstructive, in the wrong place, and was written in a chatroom level of grammar. TheDJAtClubRock :-) (T/C) 14:27, 26 June 2008 (UTC)
I noticed this one too. Granted it wasn't written in the most eloquent style, but it was in the right place, and I don't think you can call it nonconstructive because the Reference Desk's aim is to answer questions. D0762 (talk) 14:39, 26 June 2008 (UTC)
It was an irrelevant question, but I'll remember to be more careful next time. Sorry, TheDJAtClubRock :-) (T/C) 14:44, 26 June 2008 (UTC).
Looking back: wot is the most musical instroments some1 can play in one go?
What is "One Go"? even if I ignored the grammar, and it looked like : What are the most musical instruments someone can play in one go? it still would make no sense. Any other questions. TheDJAtClubRock :-) (T/C) 14:47, 26 June 2008 (UTC)
If you think about a one-man-band, then the question makes eminent sense. I have the vaguest of memories that this is a Guinness Book of Records entry. We do not delete questions for poor grammar or the use of modern idioms. Finally, it is not for you to delete questions because you find them irrelevant. Nobody died & made you king. --Tagishsimon (talk) 14:51, 26 June 2008 (UTC)
I agree, I was wrong to use rollback. I was wrong to remove, I was just stating it made NO sense. By the way "Nobody died & made you king" was a little rude. TheDJAtClubRock :-) (T/C) 14:53, 26 June 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, it was rather badly worded, but half the questions there could be considered irrelevant to some degree. Because the Reference Desk has a lot of new and annon editors, bad spelling is tolerated a lot more than other areas of Wikipedia. Anyway, I don't mean to go on at you. BTW great work with the vandal fighting! D0762 (talk) 15:00, 26 June 2008 (UTC)
Understood, thanks for the compliment. TheDJAtClubRock :-) (T/C) 15:02, 26 June 2008 (UTC)

Thank you

For the barnstar. Out of curiosity, where did you get that Cluebot statistic from? --Closedmouth (talk) 23:20, 26 June 2008 (UTC)

I got it from IRC. #cvn-wp-en TheDJAtClubRock :-) (T/C) 11:17, 27 June 2008 (UTC)

Information.svg Thank you for making a report on Wikipedia:Administrator intervention against vandalism. Reporting and removing vandalism is vital to the functioning of Wikipedia and all users are encouraged to revert, warn, and report vandalism. However, it appears that the editor you reported may not have engaged in vandalism, or the user was not sufficiently or appropriately warned. Please note there is a difference between vandalism and unhelpful or misguided edits made in good faith. If they continue to vandalise after a recent final warning, please re-report it. Thank you! Steve Crossin (contact) 14:14, 27 June 2008 (UTC)

Discussed on IRC, will watch out for that type of report, TheDJAtClubRock :-) (T/C) 14:29, 27 June 2008 (UTC).
