Your revert

Why have you reverted the change? The article's wording was misleading. Nobody believes that 'evolution alone created life' because the theory of evolution describes the diversification of life once it has already begun. Abiogenesis is the description of how life began. I have serious concerns about the neutrality of Simple English Wikipedia, and its quality is quite frankly abysmal. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)

Hi there, thanks for your comment. I reverted your change to the article because it did not cite any sources and was different to the long standing version. If you can provide some sources then you are more than welcome to put your change back. The neutrality and quality of the Simple English Pedia is just the same as all other Wikipedias, however this particular article is not as well developed as others and does seem to have been written from one point of view - you are very welcome to change it though.

Sure, I'll sort other stubs for now. I'm just going through the stubs category and sorting anything I can. Thanks for letting me know! Megan McCarty|talkchanges 17:05, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

No worries at all :) The main stub category is getting a bit ridiculous now so i'm trying to get as many changed as possible. If whilst on your travels you think a new stub type is needed (for a few hundred articles) then be bold and do it - if there's any less, it's probably better to propose it first. Regards, Goblin 17:12, 2 January 2010 (UTC) I ♥ Shappy!
Thanks for the tip! I'll be on the look out for articles that might need a new stub type. Megan McCarty|talkchanges 17:18, 2 January 2010 (UTC)


I'm not all that active on TOTW, but {{totw}} is very outdated. Any chance you'll be restarting GoblinBot1 soon? EhJJTALK 03:46, 3 January 2010 (UTC)

Hey EhJJ, As you probably know most of my bots were down over the Christmas period and I only had chance to get them back running gradually over this week. GB1 will be restarted on Monday as there is little point updating it now with one day till a new translation! Done some code mods too which i'm testing today... GB5 can be restarted too, though it seems EhJBot3 has that one handled nicely... i'll find something else for it to do! (Me thinks interwikis... you can never have too many interwiki bots ;)) Goblin 15:37, 3 January 2010 (UTC) I ♥ Fr33kman!
And  Done Goblin 16:04, 4 January 2010 (UTC) I ♥ Fr33kman!


Thanks for your encouragement! I'm glad your bot is now working (less stubs for me to help sort! :D). And great job on creating the {{Tech-stub}} type. Once I'm finished with the Belgium stubs, I'll work on sorting technology related stubs (I have seen a lot of them) :) Megan McCarty|talkchanges 16:59, 3 January 2010 (UTC)

No worries at all :) I know how tedious stub sorting can be, but once it's done it should be soooo much easier :)! Thank you for all your help! Goblin 17:20, 3 January 2010 (UTC) I ♥ Shappy!
Your welcome. And thank you for all your help! Cheers! Megan McCarty|talkchanges 17:30, 3 January 2010 (UTC)


Thank you to welcoming me to the Simple English Wikipedia. I have been a regular editor at the English Wikipedia for almost three years. On the English Wikipedia, I made many changes to pages about roads in the United States. The stuff I had copied from the English Wikipedia onto the U.S. Route 1 and U.S. Route 9 pages was from Template:Infobox U.S. Route, which is on both the English Wikipedia and Simple English Wikipedia. The stuff in the template is simple words and not confusing to a reader here. This was done to help make the articles longer. Dough4872 (talk) 19:06, 3 January 2010 (UTC)

No worries at all :) Thanks for your changes here. The article that I am referring to in particular is Fenwick Island, Delaware as it is identical to en:Fenwick Island, Delaware. While it is not overly complex, this, and your other creations, need to be credited from ENWP to comply with the GFDL/CC. In order to do this, you can use either a "permananent link" in the edit summary when you first create the article, or use a template such as {{enwp based}}. Hope this helps. Goblin 19:11, 3 January 2010 (UTC) I ♥ Yotty!
By the way, I did not initially make that article but moved it to a better title. I left reasons on the talk page on why it should stay. Dough4872 (talk) 19:13, 3 January 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for that advice, I am still learning here. Dough4872 (talk) 19:14, 3 January 2010 (UTC)
 (change conflict) Oops, sorry about that! Seemed I failed there... No worries at all, and sorry for the confusion. Goblin 19:16, 3 January 2010 (UTC) I ♥ Fr33kman!
No worries :). If you need any further help, don't hesitate to ask. Goblin 19:16, 3 January 2010 (UTC) I ♥ Fr33kman!


Hello BG7,

yes I know rollback is a nice feature; however I fail to see its use in this edit. Would really be interested in seeing your point of view...--Eptalon (talk) 01:07, 4 January 2010 (UTC)

Mis-clicked the iPod, completely accidental. Sorry about that, I've got fat fingers. Goblin 01:11, 4 January 2010 (UTC) I ♥ Shappy!

Adminship is ad vitam aut culpam. — μ 15:50, Thursday January 7 2010 (UTC)
Shouldn't former admins be removed for security purposes? :S Goblin 15:50, 7 January 2010 (UTC) I ♥ Chenzw!
What on earth does that mean. Goblin 15:50, 7 January 2010 (UTC) I ♥ Chenzw!
Forever or until fault. Griffinofwales (talk) 15:51, 7 January 2010 (UTC)
What on earth would they do? They resigned, not de-sysopped. Griffinofwales (talk) 15:52, 7 January 2010 (UTC)
 (change conflict)  Dunno if they should be removed/don't care. And it means "for life or until fault" -Barras talk 15:52, 7 January 2010 (UTC)
I think BG7 is talking about removing their list admin capabilities, not removing them from the actual list. Maximillion Pegasus (talk) 15:53, 7 January 2010 (UTC)

The very last warning!

When I unblocked you for your (many, many, MANY) violations of WP:NPA last time you agreed to a one-strike rule regarding your negative behaviour. You have since violated that trust multiple [1], [2] times. This is your last ever warning about your behaviour. You either choose to be civil from here on out or else you choose to edit elsewhere. The very next problem in this area that I see will see you both blocked and desysoped, period!! Please don't make me do this! fr33kman 07:51, 18 January 2010 (UTC)

I'm sorry Goblin but I have to agree with fr33kman, you've done much better then you have in the past I won't argue with that but I don't want to see you slip back. On a brighter note I wish you well with your exams and school work atm. James (T|C) 08:43, 18 January 2010 (UTC)

BOT revert on French commune

Hi there, I had added a graph of the population from the Dutch wiki, however your bot deleted it. If this was not simplified enough, then I'm sorry. If it was, and it is considered vandalisim, then I promise I will nto do it again.

Don't worry about it. It's good, just a false positive. Griffinofwales (talk) 01:46, 30 January 2010 (UTC)
