Bonked: "fucked"[edit]

To bonk, in Australia and perhaps other places, is a colloquial way of saying 'to fuck.' Not sure whether or not this matters. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:46, 16 July 2008 (UTC)

This refers to the bonked/Fatigued templates, which are about this sort of bonking. Graham87 10:08, 23 August 2013 (UTC)

need some modifiable templates[edit]

We need some more wikibreak templates in which editors can describe their reasons for taking a wikibreak. --brewcrewer (yada, yada) 07:36, 12 July 2009 (UTC)

The current templates allow you to fill in that information. Viriditas (talk) 10:25, 12 July 2009 (UTC)
Thanks. I still wish there would be more modifiable wikibreak templates. The template that I used doesn't really describe my situation because I don't consider my status as a "break." --brewcrewer (yada, yada) 15:09, 12 July 2009 (UTC)--brewcrewer (yada, yada) 15:09, 12 July 2009 (UTC)
Really? Because I just tried tone, and it didn't seem to work so well. ---------User:DanTD (talk) 14:43, 2 March 2013 (UTC)

Legitimacy of Wikibreak in Lieu of Block[edit]

When I saw "You've been blocked indefinitely from editing Wikipedia, per ruling of administrators, Jimbo Wales and/or the Arbitration Committee. See block log," I thought that a Wikibreak would not be a legitimate substitute for a block. I believe it would be tantamount to willfully surrendering a driver's license to evade suspension, which governments deem as prohibited. Z. Patterson (talk) 16:13, 28 December 2013 (UTC)
