More at Template_talk:Convert/updates

I have fixed 3 problems at Template_talk:Convert/updates, starting with a correction about updating {Convert/m}. I added another template to be changed: {Convert/x}. Thanks for notifying me at enwiki, and good job in catching those non-matching examples. I know it seems like an endless mass of templates. -Wikid77 (talk) 03:13, 11 June 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks for looking into it. I'll be going through the list again today.--Gordonrox24 | Talk 11:11, 11 June 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

My mistake

I am very sorry for reverting your revert. I clicked on the wrong "[rollback]" link. πr2 03:37, 13 June 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It's ok, I am sure I've done it a few times myself. :) --Gordonrox24 | Talk 03:40, 13 June 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hey dude! I just wanted to remind you that you can use rollback for reversing things such as this. A rollbacker can use rollback in any namespace to revert themselves as long as it is not controversial. :) fr33kman 04:27, 29 June 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hey Fr33k! I just used undo as I wanted to leave an edit summary on my userpage. I didn't use rollback on my talk as it really isn't all that much faster than undo :P Thanks!--Gordonrox24 | Talk 11:02, 29 June 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Was that IP edit to your sandbox made by you? πr2 (talk • changes) 20:06, 2 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Yes. Thanks for checking.--Gordonrox24 | Talk 20:08, 2 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Simple News Issue 24

GoblinBot3 (talk) 16:01, 13 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thank you

The Working Man's Barnstar
Thanks to your hard and thankless work, Category:Pages requiring attribution is empty. Thank you so much for working so tirelessly behind the scenes and making this happen. Your work is appreciated! :) -- Lauryn Ashby (talk) 00:01, 18 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
WOO It's about time! Thanks Lauryn and Griffin for helping out!--Gordonrox24 | Talk 03:59, 18 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Hello. I'd like to know why you supported and opposed Blue Goblin's Request for Deadminship.  Hazard-SJ Talk 20:59, 22 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hey there. I didn't oppose, I only supported. I was only responding to User:Yottie, who did oppose. Only comments that have numbers beside them are votes. I made my comment not count as a vote. Hope that clears it up!--Gordonrox24 | Talk 21:19, 22 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Hi Gordon, I've sent you some private correspondence regarding an issue that I'd like a second (third?) opinion on. I wasn't sure how often that you check your e-mail, so I wanted to let you know. :) Cheers, -- Lauryn Ashby (talk) 03:12, 23 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks for the note. for some reason all MWF e-mails get sent to my junk mail folder, so I do check that atleast once a day. I'll look into it :) --Gordonrox24 | Talk 15:01, 23 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Hello Gordonrox 24

I appreciate it. thanks Strong.soldier23 (talk) 17:09, 23 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Hello, I modiefied the page User:Strong.soldier23/Troy (film). Can you please take a look to see if its good. Strong.soldier23 (talk) 17:49, 23 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hey. It looks good. But I think that the plot section still needs to be simplified before it can be moved back out into the main articlespace.--Gordonrox24 | Talk 17:54, 23 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

thanks, I will work on it. Strong.soldier23 (talk) 18:04, 23 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I made the plot very short Strong.soldier23 (talk) 19:11, 23 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It isn't about making it short, we have some very long pages here on simple. We can keep the page long, but it needs to have english that is easy to understand. I may come and work on it when I have time later today. Thanks!--Gordonrox24 | Talk 19:19, 23 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

That will be great. thanks Strong.soldier23 (talk) 19:23, 23 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thank you very much for helping me with the Troy page brother. I really appreciate it. Strong.soldier23 (talk) 02:57, 25 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

No problem! It still needs work, but it is at least simple enough now. Thanks!--Gordonrox24 | Talk 02:59, 25 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Several contributions to the page were made by IP addresses 220.255.7.-(three-digits) at the same time. Would that make them open proxies, or are they the same person? :| TelCoNaSpVe :| 01:33, 26 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It does appear that they are proxies. I'll continue looking into it. Thanks!--Gordonrox24 | Talk 01:35, 26 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Looked further, and I can't see anything that would make me think they are open proxies. Thanks anyway!--Gordonrox24 | Talk 01:49, 26 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Open proxy blocks

Hey Gordonrox24. I noticed you have blocked a few IPs as open proxies. However, I don't see any edits in their contribs or in their deleted contribs. I'm just curious why you decided to block these IPs. Thanks! EhJJTALK 18:46, 29 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hey. They're blocked per Meta's rule, where as I understand it open proxies can be blocked at anytime for any period of time as they are not allowed to edit. I access all proxies prior to blocking to make sure that the IP is correct, and then send the ips to en at the Wikiproject for open proxies where they are usually blocked for a period longer then the block I set here at simple. Is this practice incorrect?--Gordonrox24 | Talk 18:53, 29 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Sounds fine to me. I was just wondering from where you were getting the IPs. Do you have a list of probable open proxies that you check, because I can't imagine you're just guessing IP addresses out of thin air? EhJJTALK 22:56, 29 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Nah, there are actually quite a few lists online that have a bunch of open proxy sites. I'm subscribed to a mail list where I get sent a few new proxies everyday, and then I check a list once and a while that updates every few minutes with fresh proxies. It seems there is an endless supply of open proxies out there.--Gordonrox24 | Talk 00:37, 30 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Sorry. Can you please delete it, as the original is at User:Hazard-SJ/Userboxes/AWB? I only want one copy.  Hazard-SJ Talk 22:48, 31 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Nothing to be sorry about; as a side note, I deleted both those pages per your requests. Did you intend to keep one after all? -- Lauryn (talk) 22:49, 31 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
As Lauryn said, nothing to be sorry about! Thanks Hazard and Lauryn!--Gordonrox24 | Talk 22:51, 31 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Of course. As another side note, I occasionally step into situations where perhaps my presence is not needed. If that's ever the case, don't hesitate to let me know. -- Lauryn (talk) 22:56, 31 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
It's ok Lauryn. Feel free to continue to do my work :) --Gordonrox24 | Talk 23:11, 31 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Yes. I added it as a template, then it was moved. As I had both open, I accidentally tagged the incorrect one.  Hazard-SJ Talk 22:55, 31 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It's alright. Looks like we got it all cleaned up! :) --Gordonrox24 | Talk 23:11, 31 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Alright, then. How are we going to ever reach consensus? :| TelCoNaSpVe :| 04:06, 3 August 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I suggest leaving the issue for today, and coming back tomorrow with a clearer head and discussing it. If PBP89 can provide solid references, it's a valid edit.--Gordonrox24 | Talk 04:08, 3 August 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Good luck! Nataly8 (talk) 15:26, 8 August 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks!--Gordonrox24 | Talk 15:28, 8 August 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Nothing. I am a new user. Nataly8 (talk) 15:29, 8 August 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

*Sad face*

I hope you get your computer situation sorted out soon, things won't be the same without you around. Let me know if you need anything admin-related done (you have my e-mail address if you need to use that). Cheers, @Lauryn (parlez) 19:30, 10 August 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks Lauryn. I'll probably still be in and out, but not really editing. I do hope to be back full force at some time.--Gordonrox24 | Talk 03:23, 11 August 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]


As requested by you via email, I have removed your sysop flag. Thanks for you work so far, and remember you are free to retrieve it by asking any crat. Hope you're back soon! :) fr33kman 19:33, 10 August 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
