Good luck with cancer treatment[change source]

Hi Chris. I just saw your edit to your page. I hope you make it through your treatment without any issues, and would like to wish you some luck. I'll keep you in my prayers! Zhangj1079 (Saluton!) 00:37, 15 October 2017 (UTC)

Same from me. Good luck. StevenJ81 (talk) 12:31, 18 October 2017 (UTC)
Thank you both for your wishes. I'm sorry I've not been very active recently, but you can understand I've had other shiznat to deal with :) I finished my first round of Chemo on Monday and got my blood work back this morning. Still waiting for the results of two needle biopsies, but the blood is looking good. A little low in platelets and Iron, but nothing too severe to panic about right now. The big test will be Monday when the biopsy results come back :D DaneGeld (talk) 20:45, 8 December 2017 (UTC)

Rollback[change source]

Hi DaneGeld, I have granted you rollback rights, like all special tools, please use it carefully. It should make reverting vandalism much easier for you.--Peterdownunder (talk) 21:15, 31 October 2017 (UTC)

Language[change source]

Please be civil in your posts. Language such as you used in this edit is not appropriate. Neither are veiled threats such as "if you know what's good for you" and "Disturb me at your own risk". --Auntof6 (talk) 21:36, 16 December 2017 (UTC)

@Auntof6: - I caused a massive argument between a bunch of single purpose IPs and a normal bogstandard editor who was getting the heck ripped out of him. I lost my temper, as anyone would faced with that kind of backbiting and sniping. It's not the first time I've told someone to STFU and it probably won't be the last either (only not on here next time).
The messages weren't meant to be "veiled threats", they were a genuine reaction to the fact that I was as angry as a box of shaken hornets and probably wouldn't like to have been held responsible for my action. Basically, it was "leave me alone" as forcefully as I could manage. Don't you ever lose your temper? DaneGeld (talk) 21:42, 16 December 2017 (UTC)
If I were to lose my temper and leave inappropriate posts, I would expect to be chastized. Thanks for modifying the language I mentioned. --Auntof6 (talk) 21:57, 16 December 2017 (UTC)

Archiving talk page[change source]

I noticed that you were cleaning up your talk page. In case you didn't know, you can have a bot archive things from your talk page on a regular basis. You put some code for the bot at the top of the page, and when the bot runs, it archives things based on the criteria you specify. It's completely up to you whether you want to use it. If you're interested, you can see the documentation at User:MiszaBot/config. Feel free to ask if you have any questions. Just be aware that the archive doesn't happen right away: you have to wait for the bot to run, and sometimes its schedule is irregular. --Auntof6 (talk) 18:54, 14 January 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for the suggestion, @Auntof6:, but I'd rather do it myself if that's ok. I can clean it up myself rather than waiting for a weird thing in the ether to do my work for me :) DaneGeld (talk) 10:06, 15 January 2018 (UTC)
No problem. I just wanted to make sure you knew about it. If you're ever interested, just know that it's configurable as far as how much to archive and how old the archived stuff should be. --Auntof6 (talk) 11:02, 15 January 2018 (UTC)
When you say it's configurable as to how old the stuff should be, can I set it (for example) to archive any thread that's not been replied to or commented on for say, 2 weeks? Or is it preset as to what intervals it cleans up at? DaneGeld (talk) 16:37, 15 January 2018 (UTC)
You can set the number of hours or days, and two weeks is definitely in the range it can handle. Every time the bot runs, it checks for threads that meet the criteria you set. There are some default values other than age that can affect what gets archived, but those can be overridden. For example, by default the bot will leave at least 5 threads on the page, and will archive only if there are at least 2 threads ready to be archived. More details are explained at the page I linked above. --Auntof6 (talk) 18:50, 15 January 2018 (UTC)

Reply on my talk page[change source]

Hi DaneGeld, I left a reply to your question on my talk page. I know your cancer treatment is taking up a lot of your time, but when you are on Wikipedia and there's nothing to do, it is there. Awfully sorry, TomBarker23 (talk) 12:52, 19 January 2018 (UTC)
