Your VandalProof ApplicationEdit

Dear CWY2190,

Thank you for applying for VandalProof! (VP). As you may know, VP is a very powerful program, and in fact the just released 1.3 version has even more power. Because of this we must uphold strict protocols before approving a new applicant. Regretfully, I have chosen to decline your application at this time. The reason for this is that Your edit count is too low. Please note it is nothing personal by any means, and we certainly welcome you to apply again soon. Thank you for your interest in VandalProof. Betacommand (talkcontribsBot) 19:00, 21 January 2007 (UTC) Betacommand (talkcontribsBot) 19:00, 21 January 2007 (UTC)


Thanks for fixing my user page after it was vandalized! Paxsimius 20:30, 8 February 2007 (UTC)

Welcome to VandalProof!Edit

Thank you for your interest in VandalProof, CWY2190! You have now been added to the list of authorized users, so if you haven't already, simply download and install VandalProof from our main page. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me or any other moderator, or you can post a message on the discussion page. Prodego talk 23:06, 10 February 2007 (UTC)

I'm sorry, but I am not able to handle anything but the most simple tech problems, as I do not have access to the source code, and even then I would not be able to understand it. Please contact the developer of VP AmiDaniel instead. Thanks, Prodego talk 01:40, 11 February 2007 (UTC)


Hey man, I'm doing RC patrol at the same moment you are, and we are both reverting people and double tagging them with warnings. LOL. I'm going to go and take out my warnings on those people so they don't get hit with "double jeopardy". Hobbeslover talk/contribs 05:17, 11 February 2007 (UTC)

VP questionEdit

Hi...I noticed you posted a question on the VandalProof discussion regarding:

Run-time error '91': Object varible or With Block varible not set.

I am having the same problem and was wondering if you were able to figure it out. Thanks! MetsFan76 16:48, 11 February 2007 (UTC)

  • Yeah it is really annoying. I haven't posted anything on the discussion page so I guess it was someone else. When I use VP, I get the error message and then the program closes even if I didn't click on another link. MetsFan76 17:06, 11 February 2007 (UTC)

Problems with WP:BaseballEdit

I noticed you brought me up on a problem with a game log. If you take a look here, here and here then you'll see what the issue is about. If you take a look here, I brought the issue up simpy because this isn't worth getting into a revert war. This user blatenly violates ban that was put on him. As you can see IP Address was reverting my edit only to oppose me. Kingjeff 03:56, 10 April 2007 (UTC)

I really don't care if it's Minnesota or Twins. It's the redunduncy of the links that I don't like. Kingjeff 18:19, 10 April 2007 (UTC)

Seeking community input re standardizing baseball roster pagesEdit

Hi ... I'm leaving you this note because you recently made edits to one of the Major League Baseball roster pages. I've made a proposal for standardizing the format, structure and content of these pages here and would appreciate your input so that we may reach a consensus. Thanks. --Sanfranman59 05:59, 23 April 2007 (UTC)

2007 Pacific hurricane seasonEdit

Please don't create the section like you did, and instead follow the standard/precedent set in previous years with new storms. I'm in the midst of updating the article to what it should be, so your edits conflicted me. Have a look at the final result, then follow it next time. Most importantly, we don't use {{infobox hurricane small}} until the storm dissipates, and the wording should be more in-depth. Cheers. – Chacor 02:51, 27 May 2007 (UTC)

Hi, just on more thing, per WP:MOSNUM, all converted values should be the same precision as the original. As the NHC gives values to 5 kt, all conversions should round to 5 too. Thanks. – Chacor 01:24, 28 May 2007 (UTC)
One more thing, always upload the high-resolution versions of images. This is regarding the forecast graphic. – Chacor 02:27, 29 May 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for the welcome!Edit

Thank you, CWY2190! Actually, I'm a regular editor on Wikipedia (User:Kungming2), and I'm not logged in because I'm not on my regular computer. Keep up the great work! :D 05:40, 3 June 2007 (UTC)

2007 Pacific typhoon seasonEdit

Just a friendly reminder: when updating the current storm information, update all the information, not just the storm's current classification. The article stated that Man-yi was a 70-knot severe tropical storm (which is impossible) for several hours. --Coredesat 05:01, 15 July 2007 (UTC)


In the future please upload ALL FREE images to Wikimedia Commons. Also, please crop out the ugly NRL headers and give the images useful names (rather than "20070716.2030.goes11.x.vis1km high.06ECOSME.65kts-987mb-143N-1309W.100pc.jpg"). Chacor 00:31, 17 July 2007 (UTC)

EPac stormsEdit

Please don't use the WPac current storm info paragraph for the Eastern Pacific. There's no need to say "the NHC reports" - the NHC is the only warning center we use for the EPac. In the EPac the standard is as per U.S. - miles and mph before km and km/h, unlike in WPac where km/h is listed first. Chacor 02:41, 22 July 2007 (UTC)

K, thanks. I was actually looking at the TWO archives and writing up the storm history for the paragraph when I realised the NHC had issued its first advisory and knew that I would end up getting edit-conflicted. Chacor 02:43, 22 July 2007 (UTC)

Invests InformationEdit

I go to the NRL storm archives [[1]] to see when the first imagery link was dated. - グリフオーザー 01:04, 25 July 2007 (UTC)


Anything else to do with Cosme now all goes in the WPac article. If it regenerates into TS 0705 it should be named Cosme by the JMA. Chacor 01:08, 25 July 2007 (UTC)

2007 PHSEdit

Thanks for updating Dalila's section, good try! I've made some minor fixes (spelling, spaces, links in refs etc) to it. Chacor 03:10, 28 July 2007 (UTC)

Hey, please be more careful when updating sensitive information like current storm information. 8 pm PDT is 0300 UTC, and you totally forgot to update latitude and longitude in the paragraph. Chacor 09:42, 11 August 2007 (UTC)

2007 PTSEdit

In the timeline, please log all JTWC actions at issuance time (03/09/15/21) instead of operational time (00/06/12/18), like we do for PHS and AHS with the NHC. Also, remember the bullet point. Thanks. Chacor 04:14, 4 August 2007 (UTC)

2007 Pacific typhoon seasonEdit

Actually, an agrement HAD been reached with Chacor (if you look at the relevant discussions) Others came in and then he reneged. ALso, you are in conflict of interest as you have already reverted one of my posts and now warn me for 3RR. I have not reverted information. I have merely posted the MOST CURRENT information while that information has been deleted. I can't believe the childishness I have been met with has I attempt to include the BEST and LATEST information in Wikipedia of a current event, something we SHOULD ALL be striving for. ludahai 魯大海 07:46, 17 August 2007 (UTC)

It is a shame you are against providing the most current information available. ludahai 魯大海 08:01, 17 August 2007 (UTC)

Thank you for positive contributions. I want you to know I am committed to HELPING make it a great article. ludahai 魯大海 08:59, 17 August 2007 (UTC)

Relief Efforts Hurricane DeanEdit

Hey buddy, just letting you know that the relief info you keep putting in on Hurricane Dean is just not necessary at this point. It is sorta advertising, and is being plopped right in the middle of the article. Jmlk17 00:10, 21 August 2007 (UTC)

Not a problem... I did come across this though. Happy editing :). Jmlk17 00:15, 21 August 2007 (UTC)


I've been having problems with Wikipedia. I keep getting warnings about pages I've never been to. I'm not quite sure how to use Wikipedia yet. As far as adding a song to Keyshia Cole's Album page( which was the ONLY page I've been to on my warnings list). She sings it on her current tour and that was the name of it. I have NO idea how to post a source to that. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 07:47, August 22, 2007 (UTC)

Hurricane KatrinaEdit

Are you impling that if citizens of New Orleans had evacuated when told to. the loss of live and the catastrophy w2ould be the same? Much of the loss of life has to do with america's greed and people unwillingness to saccrifice thier money over thier lives —Preceding unsigned comment added by Erikrespo (talkcontribs) 02:56, 6 September 2007 (UTC)

parser functionsEdit

As you may no longer be watching the helpdesk, given you had a solution to your problem, I thought I'd point out that I put in an explanation of why your code didn't work. Wikipedia:Help_desk#Parser_Functions. Hopefully that will help you understand :) — Timotab Timothy (not Tim dagnabbit!) 17:02, 17 September 2007 (UTC)

2007-08 Gophers hockeyEdit

My plan is to slowly build towards a college ice hockey wikiproject, similar to the one for college football (Wikipedia:WikiProject College football). The plan was to start with a small number of team season pages, like the WCHA, and go from there. I have noticed that there are a few team specific pages that have been started recently (Notre Dame, Michigan State). I think that a 2007-08 NCAA Division I college ice hockey season page would be a good place to organize things, and hopefully encourage others to get involved. Most of my work so far has been modeled after the college football project, so something similar their season pages would be a good starting point. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Gopherbone (talkcontribs) 03:56, 13 October 2007 (UTC)

  • I have roughed out a general outline for the 2007–08 season page on one of my sandboxes (User:Gopherbone/sandbox2). Feel free to edit and make changes.Gopherbone 04:16, 13 October 2007 (UTC)

Hey CWY2190, even though I am sure it was very hard for you to do, I wanted to thank you for your support of a Packers fan's RFA. Im sure I would have the same feelings if a Bears fan was RFA'ing haha. Well thanks again, and if you ever need anything, feel free to come and ask!

Feb 5 outbreakEdit

I have put mention on the "In the News" section but with old death toll numbers, as no source has the 11 death toll (which is based on combining all sources). Once a final death toll comes, I agree it should go to the main page. Importance should increase to Mid at 20 deaths and High at 40 deaths. CrazyC83 (talk) 04:07, 6 February 2008 (UTC)

i dont know why but i felt like i had to say your doing a great job on wikipeda —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:19, 6 February 2008 (UTC)

Yeah, I was going by past convention and the thought that it is all part of the article name. I'll leave it for now but move it back once all calms down to avoid this becoming a war. CrazyC83 (talk) 17:24, 6 February 2008 (UTC)
Look through all the WFO sites, information statements, local storm reports and SPC updates for ratings. Do not add media-listed ratings unless confirmed by WFO's. Certainly no one-stop shop there. CrazyC83 (talk) 17:33, 6 February 2008 (UTC)

I'd wait for the NCDC report to come out, since that provides final updated information and reliable sources. CrazyC83 (talk) 16:59, 8 February 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Template:User:CWY2190/sandbox1Edit

A tag has been placed on Template:User:CWY2190/sandbox1 requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section T3 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a deprecated or orphaned template. After seven days, if it is still unused and the speedy deletion tag has not been removed, the template will be deleted.

If the template is intended to be substituted, please feel free to remove the speedy deletion tag and please consider putting a note on the template's page indicating that it is substituted so as to avoid any future mistakes (<noinclude>{{transclusionless}}</noinclude>).

Thanks. Texas is being hit by tornadoes right now. Can you add this ? MY ISP just started fucking up royally. there are tornado warnings being issued right now. (talk) 03:49, 18 March 2008 (UTC)
Been watching the Weather Channel and listening to my "Self Powered Radio". It has the Weather band on it. You need to get two of these and a few "Self Powered Flashlights" as well. Find the Radio at Radio Shack, the lights at Wal*Mart. Try to find a battery, especially after you get hit by a tornado, other disaster. The newer models allow you to recharge your cell phone batteries. Now THAT is what I call ingenuity! (talk) 04:46, 18 March 2008 (UTC)

Blue Ridge Parkway tunnelsEdit

Thanks for completing the elaborate TABLE for me. Blue Ridge Parkway tunnels is a new article and I have submitted it as a self-nominated DYK today. If you see anything else for improvements, feel free to edit it. Lately some of my articles have been selected as DYKs: Moses H. Cone Memorial Park and Flat Top Manor and Moses H. Cone and Folk Art Center. I recently wrote articles on Julian Price and Julian Price Memorial Park and Blue Ridge Music Center.--Doug talk 14:35, 8 March 2008 (UTC)

FYI, Blue Ridge Parkway tunnels just became a DYK. I'm sure your elaborate TABLE you did for me contributed a lot to this. Thank you! Also Julian Price and Julian Price Memorial Park have been selected for DYKs. Recently I started the article on Michigan logging wheels and did a ten-fold improvement on the Cone sisters - both I also submitted as self nominated DYKs. If you see any improvements that should be made, feel free to edit these. Thanks again for your help.--Doug talk 22:50, 14 March 2008 (UTC)

Michigan logging wheels and the Cone sisters were selected as DYKs. I recently expanded Cone Mills Corporation ten-fold and submitted for a possible DYK. If you have time, look it over for any tweaks. Thanks.--Doug talk 14:21, 20 March 2008 (UTC)

After reviewing your request for rollback, I have enabled rollback on your account. Keep in mind these things when going to use rollback:

  • Getting rollback is no more momentous than installing Twinkle.
  • Rollback can only be used to revert vandalism only, and not good faith edits.
  • Rollback may be removed at any time.

If you do not want rollback, then contact me and I'll remove it. I'm sure you'll do great with rollback, just leave me a message on my talk page. Happy editing! Malinaccier (talk) 19:37, 21 March 2008 (UTC)

dude wtf! —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:30, 21 March 2008 (UTC)

Dear gentleman/gentlewomanEdit

I did not vandalize any page, as you have claimed so egregiously in your previous message. I simply altered my high school's page to omit the offensive language and content edited herein. I consider this action a personal attack on myself and my prestigious high school. My fellow students are offended, and I propose that you consider amending the changes you made on my high school's Wikipedia page.

Your RfAEdit

Hello CWY2190, I sorry to say that I've just closed your RfA as consensus not reached with (53/18/7). This is a borderline case so I examined the opposition and neutral opinions closely and concluded that, while you had relatively strong support, there was a general belief that your level of experience was quite high enough. While you had 53 supports, you had 25 people who didn't support so I felt that, at this moment in time, you're not quite ready. However, I would strongly encourage to you re-read the RfA and work on those areas which caused the concern, and re-apply in the not-too-distant future. All the best, The Rambling Man (talk) 08:20, 27 March 2008 (UTC)

Sorry that you didn't make it. I'd say we should wait for about two months before trying again. You should just get some experience in deletion, and the projectspace in general. Whenever you wish to run again, contact me. Happy editing, Malinaccier Public (talk) 16:28, 27 March 2008 (UTC)

March 2008Edit

  Hello. Regarding the recent revert you made to Walrus: You may already know about them, but you might find Wikipedia:Template messages/User talk namespace useful. After a revert, these can be placed on the user's talk page to let them know you considered their edit was inappropriate, and also direct new users towards the sandbox. They can also be used to give a stern warning to a vandal when they've been previously warned. Thank you. ArcAngel (talk) 19:49, 28 March 2008 (UTC)

24 WikiProjectEdit

Hello there, I see you are on the 24 WikiProject. It's been quite dead for some time now, and me personally, I intend to revive it. I considered maybe even a 24 Portal, i see the project founder hasn't been on Wikipedia for nearly a year. What are your thoughts on the project? Are you still interested in it? And would you help revive it? Let me know, I would intend to help out a lot, maybe "take over" the founders position, well not take over, but possibly help lead the project? Was just a thought and I wanted your input. My talk page would be the best place. Cheers, Steve Crossin (talk) (anon talk) 19:46, 5 April 2008 (UTC)

Thanks, even though I don't think an article will be needed until tomorrow. It will likely be needed in the end though unless everything busts.

My recent RfAEdit

Thank you for supporting my RfA, which unfortunately didn't succeed. The majority of the opposes stated that I needed more experience in the main namespace and Wikipedia namespace and talk space, so that is what I will do. I have made a list and I hope I will be able to get through it. I will go for another RfA in about three month's time and I hope you will be able to support me then as well.

2008 Pacific hurricane seasonEdit

Noticed you are the primary contributor of this article. You also created the article Timeline of the 2008 Pacific hurricane season. Are not these two articles should be merged as it will help to ensure better maintainability and will be a compact article for the topic. Otolemur crassicaudatus (talk) 16:10, 29 May 2008 (UTC)

Did it need to be created at this time? Maybe not. But it will be needed as the season goes on to keep 2008 Pacific hurricane season in order. See 2007 Pacific hurricane season and Timeline of the 2007 Pacific hurricane season.

Re: Track imagesEdit

Er, I was wondering about that. Thanks for the heads-up. Juliancolton Tropical Cyclone 18:22, 29 May 2008 (UTC)

Alright, sounds like a logical suggestion. But will the category remain "Tropical Depression One" even though it's a named storm? Juliancolton Tropical Cyclone 23:28, 29 May 2008 (UTC)
Hmm, yea, it sounds like it might be better to add the storms to the 2008 PHS cat until the storm is gone, so we could start a storm-specific cat based on peak strength (ie. Tropical Storm Alma, Hurricane Alma). Leaving this one at TD 01E isn't that big of a problem, though. Juliancolton Tropical Cyclone 23:44, 29 May 2008 (UTC)

OFC World Cup qualificationEdit

[2] You are missing something. Fiji may be only seven points down, but New Zealand and New Caledonia have to play each other twice. Even if both those matches were draws, Fiji could not catch up to New Zealand, and any other combination of results would leave them even further behind. Grutness...wha? 23:37, 22 June 2008 (UTC)

Yep. Thats why I reverted myself. -CWY2190(talkcontributions) 23:40, 22 June 2008 (UTC)

Re: Track mapsEdit

Ahaha. Before I asked you that, I actually had created a program in C# that used that exact map to figure out what pixel to put a dot at. I *think* it's flawless...I got the same basic coordinates you did, with a few extending decimals. Try it out, see if it works for you: [4] Enter latitude and longitude in pure numbers first (no N/S or W/E), and then the program will ask you whether it's N/S or W/E. See an example here.

Ah, alright. Anyway, The equation I used to find the pixels was a little bit different. First, I took 15306/360 (latitude; 360 around the map), and 7653/180 (180 longitude around the map), and got 42.516666666666666666666666666667 for each calculation. Then, I used this code to handle the hemispheres chosen:
               if (NorSEntry == "N")
                   LatPixel = (42.516666666666666666666666666667 * (90 - LatToDouble));
               if (NorSEntry == "S")
                   LatPixel = (42.516666666666666666666666666667 * (90 + LatToDouble));
               if (WorEEntry == "W")
                   LongPixel = (42.516666666666666666666666666667 * (180 - LongToDouble));
               if (WorEEntry == "E")
                   LongPixel = (42.516666666666666666666666666667 * (180 + LongToDouble));
And I was using Paint to do this because all my other image editing programs go "omg" when they try to load that massive image. Paint, for some reason, handles it pretty well. -- RattleMan 04:24, 10 July 2008 (UTC)

I made a test image of PAGASA's TD Gener here using archived PAGASA bulletins. Do you think it's of quality? -- RattleMan 05:41, 10 July 2008 (UTC)

It's very tedious to make a track map by this way, but it looks (somewhat) like the real ones. I made one for Fengshen --> Fengshen 2008 track.png. -Ramisses (talk) 19:31, 10 July 2008 (UTC)

Hello, I was wondering if I could please request a specific track map for an article I'm working on. The page is meant for Tropical Depression Winnie (the 04 PAGASA cyclone) and I need a track for it. The Typhoon2000 page provides tracking info at . I originally asked Nilfanion, but he seems to be on hiatus. Thanks! Hurricane Angel Saki (talk) 04:07, 11 July 2008 (UTC)

Blue please. Far as I know, the system only peaked as a strong depression, so it's not a bother with color. Hurricane Angel Saki (talk) 04:48, 11 July 2008 (UTC)

Somehow mix-up; I'm not the person who has ever changed anythingEdit

I have not edited, for better or worse, any pages. I do, however, believe the integrity of this database should be protected and kept intact. To that end, I am letting you know I have not made any changes to "Motion" or whatever other page(s) to which you referred.

Again, I am only sharing this with you so you are able to get in contact with the appropriate person; if you believe the IP address recording reference method is infallible and are certain I made changes, you are certainly entitled to do so.

Getting your msg, which could have been easily ignored, didn't have any impact (e.g., financial, reputational, emotional, etc) on me. It just made me aware a message was misdirected and as I am a believer in maintaining the integrity of this site and have found it to be extraordinarily useful, I felt a personal obligation to assist in making sure your message got to the correct person.

Bertha trackEdit

I noticed that you made the original Bertha_track imagee. Do you think you could update Image:Bertha 2008 track.png? I know the storm isn't done yet, but the track right now is about 1 week behind. I would do it myself but I cannot access the software. Plasticup T/C 15:32, 18 July 2008 (UTC)

Image:Fung-Wong 08 forecast track.pngEdit

I know that the image wasn't from the US. Government but I couldn't find the right copyright usage for the image so I used the closest one I could find.

I've undone all of your edits reducing the width on these templates to 50%. Most (if not all) of the seasons pages do not have these tables side by side so a reduced width isn't really necessary.

Notification: changes to "Mark my edits as minor by default" preferenceEdit

Hello there. This is an automated message to tell you about the gradual phasing out of the preference entitled "Mark all edits minor by default", which you currently have (or very recently had) enabled.

On 13 March 2011, this preference was hidden from the user preferences screen as part of efforts to prevent its accidental misuse (consensus discussion, guidelines for use at WP:MINOR). This had the effect of locking users in to their existing preference, which, in your case, was true. To complete the process, your preference will automatically be changed to false in the next few days. This does not require any intervention on your part and all users will still be able to manually mark their edits as being minor in the usual way.

For well-established users such as yourself there is a workaround available involving custom JavaScript. If you have any problems, feel free to drop me a note.

Thank you for your understanding and happy editing :) Editing on behalf of User:Jarry1250, LivingBot (talk) 20:43, 15 March 2011 (UTC)
