Nasi Lemak....[change source]

Hello Hydriz, happy new year to you. You started a one-sentence stub on Nasi lemak, and attributed it to Chinese wikipedia. Can you perhaps elaborate a bit? - Most of us do not know Chinese... - Thanks. --Eptalon (talk) 17:19, 2 January 2011 (UTC)

Hi, thanks for your concern! But currently, this is the only useful information I could get. The next heading is elaborating on how to make the dish. Hydriz (talk) 02:11, 3 January 2011 (UTC)

Sig[change source]

Confusing signature is confusing. Undecided Editor (talk) 18:26, 12 January 2011 (UTC)

I concur. What an annoying sig. The one and only...Mr. Berty! talk~stalk 18:22, 13 January 2011 (UTC)

Strict weak ordering...[change source]


I am done with the stub; if you feel competent to extend it, please do... --Eptalon (talk) 11:31, 17 January 2011 (UTC)

Okay... Sorry for mistaking the article to not be categorized. Hydriz (talk) 11:32, 17 January 2011 (UTC)

A few points.[change source]


First and foremost, this. Aside from the fact it's extremely unconstructive in what is meant to be a constructive process (Why can't they be an admin?), it's also extremely rude, borderline WP:PA and extremely WP:BITEy. Telling someone to 'come back in a year' when the criteria itself is only 3 months isn't on, whilst then going on to tell them to 'try harder' is just plain rude. There could be perfectly reasonable explanations why the user in question only edits as much as they do, and I think it's outrageous that you're telling someone who is a volunteer to try harder. What the hell? If you're wanting to turn people away from the wiki, you've done a good job as there could well be a chance that the user in question now leaves because you've basically told them their effort isn't wanted. Remember you're already being watched after the little vandalism debacle, and I'd tread very carefully if I was you.

Secondly, I also suggest that you immediately alter your signature to remove the external link to your IRC channel for a number of reasons. Not only is it in clear violation of our Signatures policy (See Wikipedia:Signatures#External_links), but it is also extremely misleading for people who do not have IRC and click the talk link expecting to come to this page, as I did. IRC is optional: you cannot force people onto it by containing an already-banned external link so ambiguously. Consider this a warning due to WP:DTTR. Goblin 14:34, 18 January 2011 (UTC) I ♥ Yottie!

Okay, I see your point, which means I am playing the bad guy. In that case, I can just take my hands off Wikipedia. Hydriz 15:08, 18 January 2011 (UTC)
That's not what I said, I just suggested that you tread carefully and think twice before clicking save... Goblin 19:59, 18 January 2011 (UTC) I ♥ Fr33kman!
Agreed. I don't think that was what Bleep was trying to do. I really don't think this should cause you to leave, your edits are very appreciated!--Gordonrox24 | Talk 04:10, 23 January 2011 (UTC)
Even that sig is still confusing. Remove those links from every letter. The one and only...Mr. Berty! talk~stalk 20:03, 18 January 2011 (UTC)
The sig no longer violates the signature guidelines so he doesn't have to remove it if he doesn't want to. The links to the bots are borderline but it's nothing to make a fuss about. I've seen far more complex ones. Goblin 20:43, 18 January 2011 (UTC) I ♥ Pmlineditor!

Above[change source]

Honestly? Offensive and degrading? How about being told to try harder and come back in a year. No-one was offensive or degrading to you, only warning you to stop being so bitey towards people. That diff stinks of you trying to turn tables onto Goblin for warning you by calling him offensive and creating drama. Normandie Talk! 13:07, 24 January 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for your feedback, but lets just put an end to this and not bring up the matter again... Sigh. Hydriz 13:09, 24 January 2011 (UTC)
Well you could have easily brought an end to it by either:
  1. Leaving it there as no-one had commented in a while. The thread was dead.
  2. Delete the whole thread.
Instead you have brought this up again by claiming people are being offensive and degrading. I've just taken the bait you waved in front of us. Normandie Talk! 13:14, 24 January 2011 (UTC)
I understand that, but it is plainly for archival purposes. Hydriz 13:15, 24 January 2011 (UTC)
Err... archival purposes? You know that that won't work? Anyway, my point is that no-one has been offensive or degrading to you, please fix that. If not I'll give you a standard templated warning message which I'd rather not do to a regular. Normandie Talk! 13:19, 24 January 2011 (UTC)
Thank you for your feedback on my usage of Wikipedia. I do hope that this kind of event would not happen again, but if it does (which I hope it doesn't), it is settled only between the both of us and third parties should not be involved. I am dearly sorry about what I posted on your RfA.
Hydriz offers a nice, warm cup of coffee to Normandy.
Enjoy the cup of coffee and, on the account of Wikilove, forgive me. Thanks. Hydriz 13:24, 24 January 2011 (UTC)

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)
