concern[change source]

Are you in the area where Hurricane Michael may hit? The reason I ask is 'cause some Simple English Wikipedia and regular English Wikipedia editors may be in the path of the oncoming hurricane. Some editors are in danger of having their computers, homes damaged by the storm.

No I am not, but thanks for thinking about who might be. --Enfcer (talk) 21:12, 8 October 2018 (UTC)

Point of information[change source]

"Mute" means unable to speak. "Moot" means Having no practical impact or relevance. But don't feel bad: many people get them confused. --Auntof6 (talk) 02:25, 17 October 2018 (UTC)

Rollback[change source]

When do you think would be an appropriate time to request for rollback again? IWI (chat) 21:37, 5 January 2019 (UTC)

@ImprovedWikiImprovment: Instead of giving you a timeline, let me point out a couple of concerns, that will likely hold you back from getting the rights. If you work on these, this will help your chances, but I can not guarantee myself or other Admin's will grant them afterwards. You can apply for them again at anytime.
  • You make reverts, and inconsistently provide warnings, or other explanations, on a regular basis.
  • When making requests to VIP, its ok to give a rationale for the block, but do not suggest what that block should be.
    • A recent one of yours suggested an Indef. While the edits were close together, you had only given 1 warning. It is always best to give multiple warnings as some Admins prefer to see them. -- Enfcer (talk) 01:20, 6 January 2019 (UTC)
Thank you for your comments, they are appreciated, I will keep them in mind in the future. IWI (chat) 13:18, 6 January 2019 (UTC)
If I have reverted (obviously) good faith changes, wouldn’t it be more appropriate to not leave a warning? IWI (chat) 14:54, 6 January 2019 (UTC)
Good Faith Reverts should have some kind of comments in the summary explaining the revert. Otherwise it could lead them to add them back then you start getting into a 3RR situation. -- Enfcer (talk) 15:58, 6 January 2019 (UTC)
That's what I thought. I see a lot of editors (not sure whether I saw it on this wiki) with an explanation of simply "reverted good faith edits by...", which I have always been against. In my recent revert, I explained it and this is something I usually try to do upon seeing good faith and will ensure I do in the future. Anyway, I won't use up any more of your time; thank you for taking interest in what I say; it shows that you are clearly a great admin/'crat :). IWI (chat) 17:13, 6 January 2019 (UTC)
