RFCU

Hi can you please make a decision and make a vote on TRM's RFCU? It would be extremely helpful. Thanks, Majorly talk 22:07, 31 March 2009 (UTC)

No, that's not a decision. It needs to be yes or no. The request will fail if there is a lack of input, regardless of whether there is consensus to promote. Majorly talk 00:14, 2 April 2009 (UTC)

WM25

The thing is that it's not WWE's program guide, so you can't use it. Futhermore, it's just a TV program guide. They could also be just promoting it, so people can buy it You really don't know. The guide is not a good enough reason. SimonKSK 18:24, 1 April 2009 (UTC)

If it's WWE doing it, wouldn't they trying to promote it more? Also, I get that I wasn't here, but you shouldn't just go and make big changes like that. Sooner or later, I'll come by, and we can talk about it. It's just that when you move it, the bot goes and fixes the redirects, and if I move it back, the robot has to undo everything and that's just a bit pointless if you ask me. SimonKSK 18:32, 1 April 2009 (UTC)
Hopefuilly, I'll check it on Friday. I have 5 min. left on this damn computer, and I need some time to review the proposal. SimonKSK 18:35, 1 April 2009 (UTC)

My RFB

Hey, thanks for your support in my RFB which was closed (early) yesterday successfully, 16/5. I hope I can live up to your expectations and provide Simple English Wikipedia with a reliable and effective service. All the best. The Rambling Man (talk) 09:28, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

Wikipedia:RecentChanges

ChristianMan,

I politely request that you stop edit warring on this page. The article has just one link, and if it is so important to you then please create it yourself. You are also close to breaking the Three Revert Rule, a blockable offence, having made to reverts. I reccomend that you do not make another one.

Please do not engage in changing such high profile pages after multiple users have changed the page - engage in constructive discussion to come to an outcome and agreement that is best for all wiki users.

Regards,

Goblin 20:48, 5 April 2009 (UTC)

My only problem is that they don't know how significant the event was, and by the way I don't build it myself cause I'm not a good article builder, I'm better at minor edits, and I was keeping count of my reverts and was not gonna break the 3RR rule.--   CM16  20:52, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
I'm sure that more people will have heard of the currently linked term than your proposed one - which also has more links on the Wikipedia. Remember, stubs are just as valuable as VGAs (they provide the building blocks) so perhaps you could make one of them?
The second part of your comment worries me. It seems clear by that comment that you don't want to discuss first but rather revert until you reach a limit. This isn't appropriate behaviour in my opinion. Please forgive me if I am wrong. Remember that the Three Revert Rule isn't a "right" and you can still be blocked for disruptive editing even if you stop at the three revert mark. Regards, Goblin 21:01, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
Well I see what you mean which is why I try not to resort to using the 3RR. Also, WrestleMania X lasted 2-3 hours, the Attitude Era lasted 4 years or so and and is still talked about to this day, most comments saying "I wish is was still the Attitude Era!" and "WWE has sucked since the Attitude Era ended! Bring it back!" The Attitude Era is what propelled the then-WWF to win the Monday Night Wars against WCW, it had a much more significant impact on the wrestling world. Do you see my point?--   CM16  21:19, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
CM, please stop edit warring on Wikipedia:RecentChanges. Your continual changing of links to topics that suit you is classed as that. Edit warring is blockable, and if you continue then I see no other action. Falklands War may not have as many red links, but it is a lot more notable world wide, and we also have no other related articles - whereas we already have one sport article. Regards, Goblin 17:26, 11 April 2009 (UTC)
I've read plenty about the Falklands War; on the other hand, I don't even know what WrestleMania X is. Enough wrestling articles, please. –Juliancolton | Talk 17:30, 11 April 2009 (UTC)
Julian, I'm just the opposite, I know a lot about wrestling (including WrestleMania X) but know absolutely nothing about Falklands War.--   CM16  17:37, 11 April 2009 (UTC)

The Attitude Era

Hi. I have made the page, as I saw you didn't feel you could make it yourself. It was only taken from en and simplified and needs work. But it's a good start. Kind regards, Yotcmdr =talk to the commander= 21:39, 5 April 2009 (UTC)

Quick question

[1] – You poured your heart and soul into those templates? Shouldn't you be pouring your heart and soul into articles, rather than a simple template? –Juliancolton | Talk 18:13, 10 April 2009 (UTC)

I do both, I said it before and I'll say it again. I'm not an article builder. I'm a minor edits man. There's more to this wiki then the articles. And most around here are losing their way on that. But that's my opinion.--   CM16  18:16, 10 April 2009 (UTC)
Sorry to butt in, but I've gotta agree with CM (consider it wikignome solidarity). I "pour my heart and soul" into tracking and fixing interwikis; I'm good at it, and I enjoy doing it (in figuring out what everything is in a dozen different languages and the satisfaction of seeing it done). I could be working on articles, but I'm not very good at it (in nearly 33k edits on enwiki, I've created exactly 0 articles). Wikis are collaborative environments, where everyone can use their personal strengths to cover others' weaknesses. EVula // talk // 18:25, 10 April 2009 (UTC)
See Evula's got it, you do what you have fun doing and what your good at, that's why I kept coming back.--   CM16  18:33, 10 April 2009 (UTC)
Fair enough. –Juliancolton | Talk 18:48, 10 April 2009 (UTC)

Belatedly...

...Happy Birthday for last October! The Rambling Man (talk) 10:56, 11 April 2009 (UTC)

Thanks.--   CM16  16:41, 11 April 2009 (UTC)

Edit warring

Hello there, I saw you indulged in an edit war (in Recent Changes); Please do not edit war. Please note that this is the only warning you will receive. Your next attempt at edit warring will result in a block. Thanks for your understanding. --Eptalon (talk) 17:29, 11 April 2009 (UTC)

Blocked

Ok, pretty much enough is enough. There's a lot of people who you have hacked off since coming here, so i've taken the plunge and just done what everyone is thinking - you have been blocked indefinitely for project disruption. If I lose my sysop because of it, as far as i'm concerned it's worth it.

Since coming here, you've done more harm than good. Most of your edits moan about one thing or another. You've been warned, by me even, but it just continues. Furthermore, you continually POV push, even when myself and Eptalon thought you'd appreciate a religious GA candidate there is still POV pushing.

Goblin 21:37, 1 May 2009 (UTC)

What the hell?! IU've done nothing to warrant an indef block!--   CM16  21:42, 1 May 2009 (UTC);
Sigh, I'll take this to AN or something...  GARDEN  21:44, 1 May 2009 (UTC)
POV Pushing, Disruption, need I continue? There's a whole list at AN. Goblin 21:44, 1 May 2009 (UTC)
Nothing apart from POV pushing, immature behaviour, disruption, nuisance-causing and generally being a waste of the project's time. This has been a long time coming. Simple has been far too soft to you, and it's about time something was done. Majorly talk 21:45, 1 May 2009 (UTC)
looks like you'll have to list them all again... Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard#ChristianMan16 indef block  GARDEN  21:46, 1 May 2009 (UTC)

SemiTransBlack x.svg

This blocked user (block log | unblock | changes) asked to be unblocked, but one or more administrators said no to this unblock request. Other administrators can also review this block, but should not unblock the user without a good reason.

Request reason: "I'm sorry but this is absolutely unfair, you don't go from a absolutely clean block history to an indef block. Basically what I'm saying is I'm protesting the indef block, I might deserve a block but not an indef one as of now."

Decline reason: "Sorry, but there is an ongoing discussion at the admin's noticeboard. Please wait until that discussion concludes before filing another request. –Juliancolton | Talk 22:15, 1 May 2009 (UTC)"

Can I at least get a message on there? It seems a little unfair if I'm not able to defend myself.--   CM16  22:17, 1 May 2009 (UTC)

That is what this talkpage is for. MC8 (b · t) 22:17, Friday May 1 2009 (UTC)
You can add comments to User talk:ChristianMan16/AN, so they can be transcluded onto AN. –Juliancolton | Talk 22:19, 1 May 2009 (UTC)

It won't it says I'm blocked; try the no include tabs here and then transclude this page.--   CM16  22:20, 1 May 2009 (UTC)

There is no reason to. Comment here. People will read it here. MC8 (b · t) 22:27, Friday May 1 2009 (UTC)
Can I please have my email right reinstated at least?--   CM16 
No. Goblin 09:15, 2 May 2009 (UTC)
Why not, what if I need something in private, it's not like I'm going to use it to harass. There are friends that I'd like to stay in touch with, and I can't do that with my email blocked. Second I saw your comment on AN Goblin and yes I said I deserved a block but you twisted it like I said I deserved an indef block, which isn't true.--   CM16  09:58, 2 May 2009 (UTC)
And there's proof of that is there? No. I'm standing by all the block reasons and length. I didn't twist anything either, I stated the facts - you said you deserved a block, I gave you an indef block. Simple as. Please, drop it until the AN discussion is over, and be glad I left talk page open at all. Goblin 10:04, 2 May 2009 (UTC)

"...gives his (first) name and a photograph on his userpage. The longer he continues here, the more real-world harm he does himself" - Soup dish on WP:AN

Soup why don't you let me decide what's best for me when it comes to real world information, I am 18 after all.--   CM16  19:21, 2 May 2009 (UTC)

You're 18? I could have sworn you were about 10 or 11... Majorly talk 19:27, 2 May 2009 (UTC)
That's low.--   CM16  19:30, 2 May 2009 (UTC)
Indeed. I rarely edit on this project but that's just a bit much. There's no need to be insulting. Please consider a strikethrough or refactor. Durova (talk) 19:32, 2 May 2009 (UTC)
Depends if he meant it as an insult or not. I honestly thought he was 13 or 14. -Djsasso (talk) 20:04, 2 May 2009 (UTC)
Thank you, no need to rubb it in. Yotcmdr =talk to the commander= 20:08, 2 May 2009 (UTC)
DJ, my userpage has said I'm 18 since I turned 18, have you been ignoring it?--   CM16  20:24, 2 May 2009 (UTC)
I didn't read your userpage as this isn't myspace and to be honest you userpage hurt my eyes. -Djsasso (talk) 21:09, 2 May 2009 (UTC)

Comments

  • We need to find a solution to the current situation; insults do not solve problems, they only make them bigger.
  • Please do not judge editors for what they believe, but based on their edits here.
  • Please do not engage in wheel-warring over the block. It is better to find a permanent solution, even if this means that the current block stays in effect a little longer. In other words: do not change the current block. --Eptalon (talk) 20:13, 2 May 2009 (UTC)
So far at the AN discussion it doesn't look like there is much chance of it changing. But I do agree, lets just wait and see what happens. -Djsasso (talk) 20:14, 2 May 2009 (UTC)

Kinda agree; it'd be much better to show how you've grown as a person, and how you've changed as an editor. fr33kman talk 00:51, 16 July 2009 (UTC)

Re: Compromise

Nope. Any more and I'll be protecting the page. Regards Kennedy (talk • changes). (I ♥ BG7) 11:42, 16 July 2009 (UTC)

And after this I'll restore the last version by Chenzw. Barras (talk) 11:43, 16 July 2009 (UTC)
Don't you dare. See above discussions and history on WP:ANI and discussion on my talk page. Kennedy (talk • changes). (I ♥ BG7) 11:45, 16 July 2009 (UTC)
http://simple.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=User_talk:ChristianMan16&oldid=1523716 That is the version of Chenzw and should stay. Barras (talk) 11:47, 16 July 2009 (UTC)
This was many months ago. Hell even the SN news has been added since which CM16 wishes to stay. That version is totally out of date. Do not change the page. First read all discussions first. Kennedy (talk • changes). (I ♥ BG7) 11:50, 16 July 2009 (UTC)

(unindent) Right, trying to make my decision clearer (again). He is free to have his ban reviewed in November. The date is not, and will be not, set in stone. 8 November was an estimation made based on the closing date of the ban discussion on AN. Chenzw  Talk  11:59, 16 July 2009 (UTC)

Block review

I have requested that your block be reviewed. If you have anything to add, you may do so here. Respectfully, NonvocalScream (talk) 22:02, 13 October 2009 (UTC)

I have learned my lesson over the past six months while quietly sitting and watching Wikipedia work. The "POV Pushing" of stupid teenager thinking he knows everything, which of course means I was wrong, I have matured over the past 6 months, I believe I do have a better head on my shoulders than I did six months ago. The disruption I was to discussion was while bad and I admit I was wrong, was just me standing up for what I believe, I will cede from discussion after making my initial point from now on. I agree I was a jackarse before my ban, I guess it was the new-found stress of the wiki getting to me. So I guess I needed the ban to use as a forced-wikibreak to destressify, now if you will let me I would love to get back to work on those wrestling articles and now work on baseball articles. Thanks for reading.--   CR90  22:15, 13 October 2009 (UTC)
