Thanks for your recent help reverting vandalism. I noticed that you were an admin on and all your reverts here have looked good, as such I've put you in the rollback user group. Hope it comes in handy and be sure to let me know if you have any questions. Cheers, Lauryn (utc) 23:26, 18 March 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks a lot, Lauryn :-). Grunny (talk) 23:34, 18 March 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Please warn[change source]

Hello, Grunny. When you revert a user's changes, like you did earlier, don't forget to leave the user a message on his talk page. You may find Template:User talk page warnings/table useful when doing this, to let them know that the change was considered inappropriate, and to direct them to the sandbox. Thank you. Hazard-SJ Talk 04:47, 18 August 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I usually do, and would have, but as the edit came within the minute of his first warning, I gave the benefit of the doubt to the user that they had not yet read the first warning. Cheers, Grunny (talk) 04:51, 18 August 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Oh, I understand your intention. Hazard-SJ Talk 05:06, 18 August 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
