Changes on Tygartl1 pages[change source]

Why have you made changes on her user page? This is your first warning on changing information on user pages that are not your own. It is considered vandalism and further edits of this nature will result in you being blocked from editing on this wiki. -  BrownE34  talk  contribs  20:50, 21 June 2007 (UTC)

This change [[1]] is what I'm referring to. -  BrownE34  talk  contribs  20:57, 21 June 2007 (UTC)

Manual of Style[change source]

Book Hexagonal Icon.svg

I suggest that you read the Manual of Style before you make any more articles. There are certain rules for formatting on Wikipedia that your articles do not follow (for example, bolding the article title, adding categories and links to the article in other languages). Also, be sure that the articles you are creating are not merely dictionary definitions or do not exist already with a different wording, spelling, or capitalization. Let me know if I can help. Thanks! · Tygartl1·talk· 21:26, 21 June 2007 (UTC)

Your edits to Nancy Drew[change source]

Sorry, but fictional characters are not placed in the categories relating to their birth year. Billz (Talk) 21:40, 21 June 2007 (UTC)

Recent edits[change source]

Hello Liam.gloucester, and welcome to Simple. I can see you're having problems with a few other editors at the moment. I can't really see why you'd feel like this about their edits, so would you mind telling me what's happening on my talk page? Hopefully we can get this resolved quickly. Thanks, Archer7 - talk 21:41, 21 June 2007 (UTC)

OK, if you need anything let me know. I can see a bit of a bug with your userpage that you might like to fix. You're using headings to make text big and bold, so it's making a contents table for you. The best way to do that normally is use three single quotes each side of the phrase to make it bold, and then <big>blah blah</big> tags around it so that the software treats it as text instead of a heading and doesn't make things like contents tables and edit links. If you really like doing it like that you can sneak past it by adding "_NOTOC_" to the top of the page which will cancel the table for you, but it's best to format it as text really. All this is just suggestions, you can design your userpage pretty much however you like really. Thanks, Archer7 - talk 21:57, 21 June 2007 (UTC)

Use of headlines[change source]

Is there any chance you can go a little easier on the headlines in articles? Most of the time, there's no need for any if it's a short article. Also, when you do use them, there is no need to use bold as well in the headline. Thanks. Billz (Talk) 21:51, 21 June 2007 (UTC)

user page edits[change source]

Hello. Can you tell why you removed content from my user page? Thanks, --Isis§(talk) 21:52, 21 June 2007 (UTC)

User talk:Isis[change source]

I don't see any reason why you shouldn't be able to get on it. Anybody will be able to get onto it, whether they are registered or not, but they won't be able to edit it. Billz (Talk) 22:07, 21 June 2007 (UTC)

Warning[change source]

Nuvola apps important.svg Please do not change messages left on your talk page, such as you did here. This is unacceptable on Wikipedia and you may be blocked from editing if you continue to do this. Billz (Talk) 22:18, 21 June 2007 (UTC)
To clarify, please do not delete or edit messages on your user page so that it changes their meaning, like you did here. That edit was totally unacceptable because you completely changed the meaning of the message, whereas I simply cleaned up my user page in order to assist with the archiving. Basically, leave it as-is please. Billz (Talk) 09:04, 22 June 2007 (UTC)
This is your final warning. Please do not change or delete messages on your talk page. If you continue to do so, you may be blocked from editing. Billz (Talk) 15:02, 22 June 2007 (UTC)
My apologies if you were removing the content for archiving, but other than that, no content should be removed. Billz (Talk) 15:08, 22 June 2007 (UTC)

Attacking other users[change source]

This is the last warning you will receive on attacking users as you have with Browne34, Panda Bear, Isis, and myself. If you make another personal attack on any other user, you will be blocked. · Tygartl1·talk· 22:23, 21 June 2007 (UTC)

Not being able to edit semi-protected pages[change source]

You will not be able to edit semi-protected pages since you are a new member. Billz (Talk) 22:26, 21 June 2007 (UTC)

Just post it on your page. I'll check for it. --Isis§(talk) 22:30, 21 June 2007 (UTC)

Blocking[change source]

Hello. I saw the question you posted on user:Tygartl1's talk page. You must be an administrator to block someone. --Isis§(talk) 01:38, 22 June 2007 (UTC)

Removing/altering content[change source]

Please do not remove conent from your talk page. Thanks, --Isis§(talk) 14:48, 22 June 2007 (UTC)

To be more precise on Isis's warning about removing content from your talk page: If you remove or alter the meaning of content on your page again, you will be blocked. If your talk page is becoming long, you can archive it by following the guidelines on How to archive a talk page. Thank you. · Tygartl1·talk· 14:52, 22 June 2007 (UTC)

Attacking other users[change source]

The comment you put on Browne34's talk page could be considered an attack, just to let you know. --Isis§(talk) 15:18, 22 June 2007 (UTC)

Blocked[change source]

Octagon-warning.svg Sorry, but you have been blocked for 2 hours since you have been extremely uncooperative and have been attacking users, such as Browne34. When you return, I hope you will behave in a sensible manner. I'm sorry I felt the need to block you, but I thought it'd be best if we could calm down a bit. Thank you. Billz (Talk) 15:21, 22 June 2007 (UTC)
I have discussed your block with another sysop, who shall remain anonymous, and they actually thought it should have been a 24 hour block, so don't feel hard done by. Both of us fully agree you should have been blocked, simply to calm the situation, but sorry for any distress it may have caused. Also, if you are blocked in the future, do not evade the block by using a mobile telephone, or similar, as this simply worsens the situation. Billz (Talk) 00:05, 23 June 2007 (UTC)
To clarify, once again, you must not delete any messages from your talk page, including the block message above. Other users need to see that you've been blocked in the past and they will be less lenient therefore with you if you breach the rules again. Billz (Talk) 16:54, 23 June 2007 (UTC)

Simple Talk[change source]

Please do not remove content from the Simple Talk page. Thanks, --Isis§(talk) 22:33, 22 June 2007 (UTC)

Explanation[change source]

You did not just get blocked for "saying" you did not like BrownE34. You vandalised my and Tygartl1's user page, and attacked more users than "just" Browne34. Many of your edits have been more disruptive than helpful. That is why you were blocked. --Isis§(talk) 14:18, 23 June 2007 (UTC)

A quick note[change source]

Just to clarify Liam, in case you're being caught out by the wiki-jargon, when we talk about attacks we mean 'personal attacks' - messages which may cause offense to other users. Saying "you turn my stomach" to Browne34 could obviously cause offense. You haven't managed to keep your temper on several occasions now. If what you said is true about your cousin, I'm certainly aware of how angry you must be at being blamed for it. However you must realise that all we get is a list of things supposedly done by you, and we get tons of vandals attempting to mess us around every day. We'd be happy for you to continue editing here and people here will try their best to help you, but please try to keep calm and listen to our advice. If you can't keep calm admins are allowed to block you if they feel that it is disrupting the wiki too much, as you've obviously found out. Those blocks are not intended to insult you or patronise you, they are purely a method of preventing major disruption. Thanks, Archer7 - talk 18:03, 23 June 2007 (UTC)

I couldn't agree more with Archer7, to be honest. We don't take pleasure in blocking you; in fact, we love new users to contribute, but all of us must abide by the rules. If a bureaucrat made a personal attack on another user, they would be blocked, just as you were. Billz (Talk) 18:06, 23 June 2007 (UTC)
Oh, yeah. I might have wanted to explain about attacks...sorry. :) --Isis§(talk) 01:18, 24 June 2007 (UTC)
