Nothing. You deserve it. Nataly8 (talk) 07:14, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

Simplification[change source]

Has the editor who created the offending content been warned? Purplebackpack89 18:37, 17 August 2010 (UTC)

Flood flag[change source]

Can I have this flag? I have to revert many changes of Hazard. Nataly8 (talk) 16:44, 20 August 2010 (UTC)

i think your page should be deleted!

Krishna consciousness‎[change source]

I saw your recent blocking of (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · filter log · WHOIS · RDNS · RBLs · http · block user · block log) with an expiry time of 1 month (anonymous users only, account creation blocked) (Disruptive editing: Sockpuppet on enwiki). The IP created an account — Whizkid (talk • contribs • CA • deleted contribs • nuke contribs • logs • filter log • block user • block log) — which also created a number of similar articles. There are also many non-rolled-back changes by both the IP and Whizkid. Based on your block, I'd assume we should rollback the edits and delete the other articles, but just wanted to check with you first, since I don't know the whole story. Thanks!

Block.[change source]

Hey Peter. Just wanted to let you know that I changed your block on User: from 31 hours to 3 years, as it is an open proxy hosted at Thanks!--Gordonrox24 | Talk 22:54, 20 September 2010 (UTC)

No access to wikimedia pages but want to post pictures on simple[change source]

How would I do this? Barras referred me to you. I do not have access to wikimedia pages. --Chemicalinterest (talk) 18:37, 12 October 2010 (UTC)

Vandalism[change source]

What was this about? --Chemicalinterest (talk) 16:27, 4 November 2010 (UTC)

Don't bother, he's just drunken and likes to troll around. (just kidding) -Barras (talk) 16:29, 4 November 2010 (UTC)
Wheeeee. PeterSymonds (talk) 16:32, 4 November 2010 (UTC)

Middleton?[change source]

Heya there, do you think it would be a lot of work to come up with a stub on Kate Middleton? - She has the attention of the media currently, and it may be time well spent (as it can attract editors). Unfortunately, I am no good at writing biographies...--Eptalon (talk) 22:19, 18 November 2010 (UTC)

So you're my prison guard eh?[change source]

...awww. Mr. Berty talk/stalk 08:44, 28 November 2010 (UTC)

AGF?[change source]

Punitive? I thought you knew me better than that. Disappointing. fr33kman 16:33, 29 November 2010 (UTC)

Your judgement in this case is equally disappointing. PeterSymonds (talk) 16:38, 29 November 2010 (UTC)
Why is my judgement in question? Because I chose to give the user a chance instead of just indef blocking him? I saw a user who was blocked on another site for socking, came here and began to comment how they are here only to serve time for enwiki. We've been here before Peter, and you are well aware of how these things usually play out. Indeed this user is already disrupting the project, but, I guess I'm the bad one here, not the user and not you, of course, for assuming I was acting in a punitive manner. Nice to have people respect you! ;) fr33kman 17:00, 29 November 2010 (UTC)
If you wanted to give him a chance, leaving him unblocked would have been more sensible. Why block for two weeks? If you're so sure how it's going to play out, why not wait until they do something actually blockable? That is why your judgement (in this particular case) is questionable. PeterSymonds (talk) 17:09, 29 November 2010 (UTC)
Personally, I'm not up for giving them a chance, but reading the comments on AN I felt that a block was in order, but not an indef one, which seems to have been equated here on simplewiki to mean permanent, which it does not. The user has done something block-able, just coming here whilst blocked elsewhere. Additionally, going around and explaining that they are here to pay penance is disruptive. fr33kman 17:14, 29 November 2010 (UTC)

Use of revert[change source]

Why revert here on my AIV request? It's dealing with non-vandalism, good-faith edits by an established user. Shouldn't you have undid instead, and/or left an edit summary of some kind Purplebackpack89 06:47, 12 December 2010 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) Well at least the user's blocked now. That was the only thing needed to be done. Mr. Berty (seasons greetings!) talk/stalk 10:41, 12 December 2010 (UTC)
It's still inappropriate use of the rollback. When I did something similar, I was told I might lose the tool. Purplebackpack89 21:15, 12 December 2010 (UTC)

Well he tells you if it's wrong. If he just reverts it, then you know he's done it. Mr. Berty (seasons greetings!) talk/stalk 16:30, 15 December 2010 (UTC)

Thanks! I wouldn't have had time to fly to Trenton, New Jersey, anyway... - Amgine (talk) 16:14, 28 December 2010 (UTC)

Where you live[change source]

Is it cold there now? --Chemicalinterest (talk) 20:58, 28 December 2010 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) I don't think he really lives in the North Pole, his userpage was just vandalized, for a long time...Tofutwitch11 (TALK) 21:02, 28 December 2010 (UTC)
Prove it. PeterSymonds (talk) 21:12, 28 December 2010 (UTC)
It is always cold where PeterClaus lives.--Gordonrox24 | Talk 21:27, 28 December 2010 (UTC)
I live there to, I've never run into you. Tofutwitch11 (TALK) 22:08, 28 December 2010 (UTC)
Do you know why this is on his user page? Barras got back at him for this edit. --Chemicalinterest (talk) 23:07, 28 December 2010 (UTC)
Yep, know the wholeee story. It's Peter, best leave it, or you may endup in the south pole. :P Tofutwitch11 (TALK) 02:34, 29 December 2010 (UTC)
lol, I missed it, but it seems funny ;) --—SEPTActaMTA8235— (t c l) 21:10, 26 April 2011 (UTC)

Just suggesting...[change source]

Since it's that "I WILL SUE YOU!" guy again, change the block log to (Abusing one or more accounts). Mr. Berty talk~stalk 20:24, 5 January 2011 (UTC)

Service Award[change source]

This editor is a Yeoman Editor and is entitled to display this Wikipedia Pocket Edition.

Hi PeterSymonds, I think it is about time you recieved a book, and with over 2,500 edits and nearly two years service, you get a copy of the Pocket Edition of the Wikipedia. Congratulations Peterdownunder (talk) 06:08, 13 January 2011 (UTC)

Why you delete? I just want help this wikipedia.--Semangat (talk) 17:09, 30 January 2011 (UTC)
Hi. You really need to create referenced pages here. A single line page is no better than no article at all. Please consider this before recreating any of the pages. Thanks. PeterSymonds (talk) 17:13, 30 January 2011 (UTC)

Regarding Hey[change source]

Was testing using IP to make a message on the IP talk once I logged in, but turns out Twinkle b0rked and epically failed at tagging the page. Regards,--—SEPTActaMTA8235— (t c l) 21:08, 26 April 2011 (UTC)

Deletion[change source]

I noticed you deleted my sub-page. I was okay with deleting the category, but come on, the Operation enduring blah blah thing was a sub-page and should be respected like one. I mean, Groton makes articles with less than 15 words but they don't get deleted. Reverter (talk) 19:44, 7 May 2011 (UTC)

Rollbacker[change source]

Hi. Can I report this? Thanks :)--Frigotoni ...i'm here; 12:18, 2 September 2011 (UTC)

Done. PeterSymonds (talk) 12:20, 2 September 2011 (UTC)
Thanks PeterSymonds! Ps: Can I have the "welcome" on my talk page :D please? thks!--Frigotoni ...i'm here; 12:21, 2 September 2011 (UTC)

Flood flag[change source]

I'm sorry, Peter. I'm still trying to figure out what is repetitive enough and uncontroversial enough that I should either get a flood flag or use my bot (User:Auntof6Bot). Sorry that I flooded enough to make you have to give me the flag. --Auntof6 (talk) 10:31, 14 October 2011 (UTC)

Hi there. Don't worry! I was only joking in the summary. Thank you for all your efforts. All best, PeterSymonds (talk) 11:58, 14 October 2011 (UTC)

I made an assumption. I apologize. Jon@talk:~$ 19:45, 20 November 2011 (UTC)

Why did you delete my page? Jerome (Ian Streeter) Just my changes! 23:34, 27 February 2012 (UTC)

The content was inappropriate. Please don't post any information about yourself or your family. PeterSymonds (talk) 23:36, 27 February 2012 (UTC)
I wasn't. All I was doing was experimenting with the birth date and death date templates. Can you please restore? Jerome (Ian Streeter) Just my changes! 23:38, 27 February 2012 (UTC)

Clara Petacci[change source]

Hello there,

I recently copyedited an article about Clara Petacci, one of Mussolini's lovers/mistresses. In that context, there is a photo here that shows a portrait of hers. She was shot, together with Mussolini, in 1945. According to italian law, the copyright for photos is 20 years (for "Simple Photos"), and the usual 70 years, after the death of the author, for "artistic" ones. Supposing the author died around 1940, this would mean 2010. Problem is: the author is unknown. So I would suggest to transfer the photo to commons, so we can use it here. What do you think? --Eptalon (talk) 21:54, 23 May 2012 (UTC)
