For your very good work as admin! Nataly8 (talk) 07:11, 17 August 2010 (UTC)

Nataly8[change source]

Just to let you know, Nataly8 has been blocked on the Greek Wikipedia. Just a note..Razorflame 07:13, 17 August 2010 (UTC)

According to google translate, it is for "Harassing / aggressive behavior". Hazard-SJ Talk 04:50, 20 August 2010 (UTC)
I can read a very small amount of Greek, but either way that wasn't a particularly helpful comment. Even if I hadn't checked it out I could have easily put it into babelfish myself. sonia 05:07, 20 August 2010 (UTC)

Thank you very much![change source]

Sonia, I really appreciate the welcome. I'm still dealing with that lunatic on some other sites, but I have more than enough information to shut him down for good. In the meantime, it'll be a pleasure working with you on this site. Again, sincerest thanks and God bless. --PMDrive1061 (talk) 04:49, 19 August 2010 (UTC)

You did very good jog with anonymous users! Nataly8 (talk) 10:55, 19 August 2010 (UTC)

I think you have to block the last anonymous user :( Nataly8 (talk) 04:45, 20 August 2010 (UTC)

 Done, please report to VIP next time. sonia 05:07, 20 August 2010 (UTC)

Flood flag[change source]

As I requested on AN, I'd like to get the flood flag please (unless its possible to flood my bot account). Hazard-SJ Talk 04:56, 20 August 2010 (UTC)

What are you going to be doing, and which account do you actually want flagged? sonia 04:59, 20 August 2010 (UTC)
Could you flag my bot and give it access to AWB? I have some cats to add. Hazard-SJ Talk 05:00, 20 August 2010 (UTC)
There has been objections to that in the past from more than one administrator- if you want to operate a bot account or gain access to AWB under either account, you will need to put a formal request up on AN. sonia 05:02, 20 August 2010 (UTC)
I had recently added to WT:BOTS and got no reply. Hazard-SJ Talk 05:04, 20 August 2010 (UTC)
That doesn't change the fact that I can't override consensus, sorry. Put it up on AN as it's more than a bot issue, it's about you/flood/AWB in general. sonia 05:07, 20 August 2010 (UTC)
OK. I'll ad it there as well. Hazard-SJ Talk 05:09, 20 August 2010 (UTC)

 Done In that case, could you add it to this account please? Hazard-SJ Talk 05:20, 20 August 2010 (UTC)

If he, really, need to put categories in many pages, why you refuse? Nataly8 (talk) 05:28, 20 August 2010 (UTC)

I don't think she refused; she didn't reply. Maybe she is offline. Hazard-SJ Talk 05:30, 20 August 2010 (UTC)
 (change conflict) × 2  Please be patient! I see Fr33k's given it to you now, but in the future don't ask around for requests like this. I was away from the keyboard for not more than five minutes. sonia 05:34, 20 August 2010 (UTC)

Gift[change source]

Cake Valentine.jpg Somebody has baked you some cake! Enjoy the taste!

My new gift! Nataly8 (talk) 05:37, 20 August 2010 (UTC)

Thank you. sonia 07:29, 20 August 2010 (UTC)

Requests for removal of rights[change source]

Hello. I have completed for now. Could you please remove my flood flag? Also, I'm sure The Three Headed Knight has completed a long time now. Please remove his as well. Hazard-SJ Talk 08:22, 20 August 2010 (UTC)

oops- didn't see his note. Thanks and removed. sonia 08:24, 20 August 2010 (UTC)
Thanks; you're welcome. That was a lot of work! Hazard-SJ Talk 08:25, 20 August 2010 (UTC)
Aye, that it was. The only thing I would say for next time is, be careful not to use redirected categories or a bot will have to come and fix them, like here. Other than that, a good job done. sonia 08:29, 20 August 2010 (UTC)
Thanks. Should I fix them for that category? I could do it now. If so, please grant me the flag (I'll know if I got it via NC). Hazard-SJ Talk 08:32, 20 August 2010 (UTC)
The bot's fixed them all, so just remember that for next time. sonia 08:32, 20 August 2010 (UTC)
I just noticed (Category:Food is empty). I'll check for the soft redirects next time. Hazard-SJ Talk 08:34, 20 August 2010 (UTC)

Busy/Help?[change source]

Are you busy? Could you lend a hand? --Rotzil (talk) 11:14, 21 August 2010 (UTC)

Um, all right. What would you like help with? sonia 11:15, 21 August 2010 (UTC)
My two entries. --Rotzil (talk) 11:16, 21 August 2010 (UTC)
Ah. Well... I am not sure if they should be articles on their own. Maybe you could help add information to Pokemon or one of the related articles instead? One of the rules we have for articles is notability, this means that things have to be important to have their own article. I don't think that every single Pokemon is important enough, unfortunately. sonia 11:22, 21 August 2010 (UTC)

Purplebackpack Challenge Cup[change source]

Three weeks into the Purplebackpack Challenge Cup, and several editors are off to a good start. Barras has a commanding lead in the Plum Division with 135.5 points, Yottie leads the Royal Division with 68.5 points, and PiRSquared17 and Kansan are also off to good starts. However, several editors have yet to claim any points at all! In addition, none of you have claimed a GA, VGA or the Edison bonus, bonuses that could break this competition wide. Hope that changes in the next two weeks! Purplebackpack89 15:10, 21 August 2010 (UTC)

I'll try to get at least two articles in, that's utterly pathetic of me. :( sonia 07:44, 23 August 2010 (UTC)

Hey, good luck. I aslo take part :) Nataly8 (talk) 08:51, 24 August 2010 (UTC)

Rename at eswikibooks[change source]

Done. Left you some notes there. Regards, --Dferg (talk) 10:31, 22 August 2010 (UTC)

Thank you very much. sonia 07:44, 23 August 2010 (UTC)

User:This flag once was red[change source]

Hi Sonia - about time I dropped by and said "hi" here!

Thanks for blocking this impersonator - I confirm it is not mine, nothing to do with me at all.

This one is mine - I've explained how this came about over at, but basically that was my username, I changed it at (to "TFOWR") and then did SUL on the new username. I'd forgotten all about the old username here, but it's no longer used, I have now redirected the userpage and talkpage to my new userpage and talkpage, and the old username can - if you want - be blocked.

Thanks for spotting this - I guess my usernames old and new lend themselves to impersonation. TFOWR (talk) 07:39, 23 August 2010 (UTC)

No probs :) sonia 07:44, 23 August 2010 (UTC)

Just making sure...[change source]

I assume you're okay today? Kansan (talk) 20:56, 3 September 2010 (UTC)

Have I done something to suggest otherwise? sonia 20:58, 3 September 2010 (UTC)
No, not at all. I'll message you somewhere else; sorry for the confusion. Kansan (talk) 21:43, 3 September 2010 (UTC)

Cup of Purple[change source]

Hey, because I am taking part, I wrote something in my "cup" page (see my user page). I wrote it right? Nataly8 (talk) 07:08, 4 September 2010 (UTC)

Not sure what you're asking... sonia 11:00, 5 September 2010 (UTC)

Userpage[change source]

Hi Sonia! I've created my userpage here and on a couple of other projects based on yours. I changed the image and the placing of stuff, and put in userboxes for the languages I speak instead of the verse, but the code is still very similar. I put credit to you at the bottom of the userpage. I hope you don't mind, and if you do, please tell me and I'll be happy to remove everything I copied off you. Happy editing! - EdoDodo talk 10:48, 5 September 2010 (UTC)

Not a problem- I'm somewhat flattered, actually. On an unrelated note- your sig linking directly to enwiki may confuse some newer editors. Would it be possible to do something which allows us to contact you here? (Like EdoDodo enwp, for example?) sonia 11:00, 5 September 2010 (UTC)
Good point, I'd done that when I wasn't very active here, so wasn't watching my talk here. Since I'm fairly active now, and will be watching my talk, I'll link it directly to the one here. Thanks for pointing it out! - EdoDodo talk 11:16, 5 September 2010 (UTC)

Purplebackpack Challenge Cup[change source]

Well, the first round is now closed, and the knockout round has begun. A congratulations to Nataly8, who made enough edits on the last day to squeak into the semifinals, joining Barras, Yottie and Kansan. For people playing in the Uniondale semifinal, enter under User:Purplebackpack89/Purplebackpack Challenge Cup/Uniondale, and for the Kansas City semifinal.

Fun[change source]

Hehe, you welcomed me to the simple Wikipedia, when you had already been involved in the discussion at w:WP:ANI#User:Protector of Wiki.

Happy editing! Heymid (talk) 13:00, 25 September 2010 (UTC)

Random Acts of Kindness Barnstar.png The Random Acts of Kindness Barnstar
Thanks for helping me out with the Image Policy, I truly am hopeless keep up the good work! :) Ғяіᴆaз'§Đøøм Champagne? 03:33, 8 October 2010 (UTC)

I really wouldn't have known about the policy on images weren't it for you, thanks so much! Regards, Ғяіᴆaз'§Đøøм Champagne? 03:33, 8 October 2010 (UTC)

No, you're not hopeless, we're just... well, so similar to enwiki in some ways that people popping over let down their guard a little, I guess. I know I uploaded an image here once- it was not only not allowed, but was also a copyvio! o_O I've come a good way since, obviously, and you're doing well yourself. Thank you for the barnstar- I've had (if you saw my reply to 220.101 at enwiki) a rather interesting week, and that was just what I needed. sonia 05:54, 8 October 2010 (UTC)
You're welcome, heh we all start out like that, but I'm more... uhhh... slow in some ways. But when I learn something it stays lodged in my thick cranium. Ғяіᴆaз'§Đøøм Champagne? 06:56, 8 October 2010 (UTC)

Admin Barnstar.png The Admin's Barnstar For showing me all about what and what not to put on this wikipedia! Thanks so much!!! Happy editing, (talk) 07:34, 12 October 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the welcome!![change source]

Hi Sonia, Thank you very much for the welcome and links to Simple English help guides, very much appreciated. Simple English Wikipedia is a new discovery to me and I think that I will enjoy it here. Thank you very much for contributing to the Gisborne, New Zealand article too :-) See you around in *Wikispace!* Jakingsbeer (talk) 08:21, 12 October 2010 (UTC)

Very glad to help. If you have any questions, feel free to ask! Cheers. sonia 08:23, 12 October 2010 (UTC)

History of the United States[change source]

Glad to see somebody's giving it its due. Little FYI...I just added a couple sentences in the Constitution/Federal Period section, so you may have to look those over again

Purplebackpack89 05:45, 13 October 2010 (UTC)

I'm collecting my comments as I go- unfortunately I've got a full schedule until Sunday, when I'll do a full copyedit and collate everything. If that's all right by you. sonia 06:11, 13 October 2010 (UTC)

Deletion query[change source]

This, Midnight sun:edward's side of twilight is OR, unsourced, poorly written (Lack Of Captalisation) etc. Opinion puhlease? {{ec}} works, but no {{tps}}! :-( – (talk) 04:13, 21 October 2010 (UTC)

(Devoted TPS for the win! This is why I like writing out it out manually. ;) We usually try to fix up poorly written articles than just speedy delete them here, but I think this one meets A4 for not establishing notability, especially since it's still unpublished. I'll leave this for Sonia to take care of, though. Lazy? Who, me? :D Alternatively, 220.101, you could start a request for deletion for it or redirect it to Twilight. Hope this helps! :) Love, —Clementina talk 05:48, 21 October 2010 (UTC)
 Done After a quick discussion with Sonia, I've deleted it. I guess I'm not so lazy after all. ;) —Clementina talk 06:00, 21 October 2010 (UTC)
I did say 'opinion' >:-{ <grumble>. I was going to RfD it, but wasn't sure of the procedure, only done a little of that sort of thing at en:WP. More CsD I think (don't need to create pages etc.) Meant to come back but I was chasing vandals and such at en:WP (and doing the washing etc. in RL). Oh well! </grumble>. - 220.101 (talk) 08:44, 21 October 2010 (UTC)
<hugs> I was attempting to sort out a messy legal problem irl, so I got Clem to take action as she saw fit. XfD is, like everything else, consolidated here into one page: WP:AFD, and instructions are fairly simple. If you got an account you could use Twinkle, which would make your job a lot easier- I can't give an IP rollback either! </hugs> Stopped grumbling yet? ;) sonia 09:04, 21 October 2010 (UTC)
Oh alright (though I never really stop grumbling, thats just me :-/ ) - 220.101 (talk) 16:01, 21 October 2010 (UTC)
You can't, but I'm certain a developer can! However, there's probably more chance of gravity failing than a IP getting rollback!

need help about article[change source]

I am writing ne of article and you are blocking it again & again, I am unable to find out the reason about same can you help me about same. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)

Hello. The reason that we deleted your articles is because they were all promotional. Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, not a place to advertise. All articles must be about subjects that are suitable for an encyclopedia, and must be written from a neutral point of view, with sources to prove that what you are saying is true. I would recommend you read this page. Thank you. sonia 09:28, 30 October 2010 (UTC)
