Hey. I've been writing a lot of DYK facts and so I wrote my last one. I wrote a fact about Pat Hingle, but Oregonian declined it because "it happened soooooo long ago" and that "Hingle is not a household name". Can you try to talk some sense to that user. I would but whenever I write something on his talk page he deletes it and ignores it. Can you please reply on my talk page. Thanks a bunch. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk), 30 May 2013, 16:13 (UTC).
Apologies for not getting back to you sooner on this; I've been somewhat busy IRL recently. I'll see what I can post put it seems that most things are deleted by this user from their talk page. I'll also bounce some suggestions off others as to an appropriate way forwards; I'm leaning towards a thread on WP:AN to bring this to the wider community, as I agree that it is somewhat disruptive behaviour.

Please also see the previous (now archived) discussion Chenzw'stalk page, specifically the part about raising this at WP:AN if it became an issue once more. Goblin 02:13, 1 June 2013 (UTC) I ♥ GoblinBots!
Thank you soooooo much. You are truly a good trustworthy user. If you need anything just write to me. Thanks again. --TDKR Chicago 101.
I edited the manson dyk because manson was not the actual killer. he ordered his followers to kill Tate which they did. the dyk is misleading. some readers will think he actually stabbed her to death. please remove the "Sharon tate killer" . thanks. Oregonian2012 (talk) 19:07, 18 June 2013 (UTC)
If this is the case then the entire hook must be removed back to the nominations page and it must be discussed again. The hook as it stands is the one approved; if you alter it (Even if it is factual) then it has not been approved by the community, and thus is not eligible to appear on DYK. Hope this makes sense.

fine. remove 'sharon tate killer' and send it back to dyk. Oregonian2012 (talk) 10:38, 20 June 2013 (UTC)
There is no reason why you can't do this yourself, as you're the one proposing it. Goblin 11:51, 20 June 2013 (UTC) I ♥ Bsadowski1!
You are the custodian of the page. I wouldn't dare to touch a queue, even if you give me permission! Oregonian2012 (talk) 17:54, 20 June 2013 (UTC)
No, I am not. Like the rest of Wikipedia, DYK is run by the community on community consensus. Anyone can change something (as long as it follows the rules), and no 'permission' is required. I really think you need to sort out your attitude problem. Goblin 18:01, 20 June 2013 (UTC) I ♥ The Rambling Man!
He's the custodian of the DYK page. Read his User page: "Here at Simple, my work so far has mainly involved looking after the Did you know section." He doesn't tell us if this "work" has been arrived at by community consensus or just something he has taken upon himself to do without that consensus. Would love to know!

I'm going to ignore this. Goblin 18:01, 20 June 2013 (UTC) I ♥ Barras!
I haven't answered your post yet. Check back when you have nothing to do. I'll have an answer then. Oregonian2012 (talk) 16:05, 20 June 2013 (UTC)
Well I've got nothing to do right now, and I see no reply... Goblin 18:02, 20 June 2013 (UTC) I ♥ Mh7kJ!
Thank you for all the help you have given me over the past couple of weeks. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 00:56, 21 June 2013 (UTC)
Not a problem at all - thank you for the cookies! Now if only I had some milk... :(Goblin 01:02, 21 June 2013 (UTC) I ♥ Fr33kman!
Mmm - Milk!
A tall, cool glass of milk just for you! Milk somehow promotes WikiLove and hopefully this has made your day better. Spread the WikiLove by giving someone else a glass of milk, whether it be someone you have had disagreements with in the past or someone putting up with some stick at this time. Enjoy!
Thank you for all the help you have given me over the past weeks. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 06:47, 22 June 2013 (UTC)
You have corrected me in every giving, I hope you never leave. AaqibHola! 21:32, 22 June 2013 (UTC)
Never say never, but thanks. Goblin 16:16, 23 June 2013 (UTC) I ♥ Barras!
Hello! I'm wondering if my article James Gandolfini can be a good article. It has good reliable sources in every sentence in the article. I know it's a long shot, but can you write suggestions on what to fix on the article, so that it can be a good one. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 21:39, 22 June 2013 (UTC)
I will try and take a look at in the week if I can. If you feel it's ready, go ahead and suggest it - if someone does then review it it'll save time for you between nomination and promotion. Goblin 16:17, 23 June 2013 (UTC) I ♥ Mh7kJ!
No problem. Sorry it's a little vague at the moment, but I'm rather busy IRL at the moment. As I say, I'll try and get to you in the week. Goblin 17:07, 23 June 2013 (UTC) I ♥ Mh7kJ!
I read your edit summary for General Tom Thumb and will refrain from changing the original nom but take it to a 'revision' instead. Thanks for the reminder. Here's a belated glass of lemonade to celebrate the first day of summer! Oregonian2012 (talk) 23:13, 22 June 2013 (UTC)
If a hook is unreviewed then it is usually okay to just edit it inline, however a hook that has been reviewed (positively or negatively) should always be revised with a re-statement of the hook, for what I hope are apparent reasons. Thanks for the lemonade. Goblin 16:18, 23 June 2013 (UTC) I ♥ Chenzw!

I've reworked the DYK Robert E. Lee nom. Please take a look and make suggestions. Oregonian2012 (talk) 02:42, 24 June 2013 (UTC)
...and the point in giving me a talk page message for a page I clearly check very regularly (and have on something called a 'Watchlist') is? Goblin 02:46, 24 June 2013 (UTC) I ♥ Barras!
