Signature[change source]

Howdy. I wanted to come see your userpage, but as I clicked your signature, I was taken to your bot pages. You could consider redirecting you bot talk to your user talk, and cleaning that signature up if you don't mind. It is a bit complex and confusing. Thank you so much for your hard work on the project and your time. Cheers! Jon@talk:~$ 03:18, 25 January 2011 (UTC)

Oh dear, given the number of feedback from the editors about my signature, I have no choice but to change it.  Done! HydrizTalkBot 11:35, 25 January 2011 (UTC)

This.[change source]

I politely suggest that you remove it immediately. I seem to remember you've been warned about something like this before. It's not helpful, it's not constructive and it's completely against the Wikipedia ethos. I'm very close to starting a ban proposal thread right now after previous offences, so please consider my request with some thought. Goblin 17:41, 25 January 2011 (UTC) I ♥ Bsadowski1!

I noticed this earlier and it is clearly in reference to me, as I had made exactly 9 edits at that point. I'd like an explanation. Normandie Talk! 18:09, 25 January 2011 (UTC)
I echo what Goblin has said. This can be considered WikiHounding. Please remove it immediately. Kansan (talk) 18:19, 25 January 2011 (UTC)
Just hiding it isn't enough. What are you trying to prove? I asked for an explanation and would like one or I'm taking it further. Normandie Talk! 09:08, 26 January 2011 (UTC)

Notification[change source]

As per above I am giving you notice that I have started a discussion at Administrators noticeboard regarding your conduct here. Regards, Normandie Talk! 13:53, 27 January 2011 (UTC)

Raw stats[change source]

Thanks for giving an example of a valid stats request at Wikipedia:Simple talk#Problem with raw statistics. It will save people like me a lot of time and effort trying to figure out how to do this simple thing... - dcljr (talk) 13:46, 12 February 2011 (UTC)

Ah, it is just part of my job ;) Have fun editing Wikipedia! HydrizTalkBot 14:13, 12 February 2011 (UTC)

Your bot[change source]

See here... is blocked. -Barras (talk) 12:23, 14 February 2011 (UTC)

Singapore again?[change source]

I remember you nominated Singapore for GA a while ago. I just added some simplified content from EnWP and made a few other small changes. The next step seems to be improving the section on education. I plan on working on Singapore over the next few weeks when I have time. If you have a chance, can you check my work? I've only visited Singapore for a few days.

Let's get this back on the Proposed GA soon. Thanks, Gotanda (talk) 04:29, 15 February 2011 (UTC)

Hey, welcome to Singapore! I believe our community would welcome you here into a wonderful city. Thank you for your help on editing Singapore. I would be reviewing them and correcting errors if I do see them. Have fun! HydrizTalkBot 12:01, 15 February 2011 (UTC)

Refactoring talk comments...[change source]

...is a no-no. Come on, it's elementary stuff really. You don't have to indent threads like that, and as Barras explained in his revert he did it like that for a reason. Goblin 23:33, 20 February 2011 (UTC) I ♥ Pmlineditor!

Hmm, then maybe it might be better that we have a template for that? We can say that we are replying to the first comment and not the second. It is kinda confusing sometimes when you can't make sense of whether the user is replying to the first comment or the second. HydrizTalk 10:50, 21 February 2011 (UTC)

RFA[change source]

Hi, Hydriz

Thanks for the support at my RFA. I appreciate the trust that you and the community have in me to be a sysop. Albacore (talk · changes) 01:28, 27 February 2011 (UTC)

Sorry[change source]

I am sorry; I just wanted to know what would happen. 82.0.83.150 (talk) 13:53, 9 March 2011 (UTC)

I always believe people does things in good faith. If you would like to know what happens, just use the sandbox. Contact me if you still have any questions! :P HydrizTalk 13:56, 9 March 2011 (UTC)

Notice[change source]

Please do not revert edits that are not vandalism (and certainly don't warn users for it). This edit was completely legitimate. [1] This could result in you losing Twinkle/rollback privileges if it happens again. Thanks, Kansan (talk) 03:09, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

Why was this edit not vandalism? The text is the default text given when clicking on one of the buttons under "Advanced". This scenario is similar to clicking on the large "B" without changing the text. HydrizTalk 09:20, 30 March 2011 (UTC)
The edit also added an entire paragraph of material regarding to the topic, and hitting that button may have been accidental. Kansan (talk) 13:20, 30 March 2011 (UTC)
Oh, I am dearly sorry Kansan. My sincere apologies... I totally overlooked the paragraph below. Sigh, maybe my screen is too small... Thanks for the notice anyway. HydrizTalk 13:23, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

Sandbox[change source]

Hey Hydriz, just a note that there's no need to revert changes that are made to the sandbox - even if the header is removed - as it is automatically cleaned by a bot for a reason. The sandbox is often the first place potential new contributors can help, and so it's not a great idea to revert their comments within seconds of them being posted. And, if they do remove the header, please don't communicate via edit summaries as it is highly unlikely new users will be looking at Recent changes, Watchlists or Histories to see them - instead leave them a note on their talk page, using {{uw-sandbox}} if required. Thanks, Goblin 12:08, 6 April 2011 (UTC) I ♥ Nifky!

Sure, though I believe that user was a vandal given the talk page is populated with warning templates. Thanks anyway, didn't know of this template before. HydrizTalk 12:09, 6 April 2011 (UTC)

errors?[change source]

Removing valid references because they are named refs whose content was not copied over from the enwiki article is not exactly beneficial; wouldn't it have been better to find and add the content of the refs? sonia 07:12, 17 April 2011 (UTC)

 Done Sorry. HydrizTalk 07:27, 17 April 2011 (UTC)
Not telling you off at all, just pointing out a better alternative-- remember to take a bit more time when looking over something to decide what is best for the project. :) sonia 07:29, 17 April 2011 (UTC)
Ok, will do so. Didn't know the article was from the English Wikipedia as I don't check them at all. HydrizTalk 07:32, 17 April 2011 (UTC)
