Attention: I prefer to keep discussions unfragmented. If you leave a comment for me here, I will most likely respond to it on this same page—my talk page—as an effort to keep the entire conversation in one place. By the same token, if I leave a comment on your talk page, please respond to it there. Remember, we can use our watchlist to keep track of when responses are made. At the same time, feel free to send an alert to me on this page about a comment you have left elsewhere.

Thank you!

If you've come to this page because you got a notification saying I'm patrolling your page, then it just means that I've checked your new page meets Wikipedia standards. If it didn't, then I will have tagged the problems on the article itself.

June 2019Edit

  Hello, I'm Rsfinlayson. I wanted to let you know that one or more of your recent contributions to New Zealand have been undone because they did not appear constructive. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. If you have any questions, you can ask for assistance at the help desk. Thanks.

I was coming here to ask exactly the same question although in a more personal way. You are an experienced editor, so what exactly were these maps that you consulted that omitted New Zealand ? Rather than burdening Wikipedia with the cartographical inexactitudes of a map publisher and then synthesising this into "fictitious", would it not have been preferential to write to the map publisher instead? And no.... it wasn't funny. 13:09, 18 June 2019 (UTC)

Is there any reason you should not be blocked for outright vandalism? -- Jezebel's Ponyobons mots 22:30, 18 June 2019 (UTC)
  • Apologies to anyone I offended with this outburst, I know it wasn't appropriate. I'll be posting a proper unblock request in the next few days, I just want to let the dust settle. Joseph2302 (talk) 09:09, 20 June 2019 (UTC)

Indefinite block noticeEdit

You have been blocked indefinitely from editing for violations of your 2015 unblock terms.
If you think there are good reasons for being unblocked, please read the guide to appealing blocks, then add the following text below the block notice on your talk page: {{unblock|reason=Your reason here ~~~~}}.  Jezebel's Ponyobons mots 22:47, 18 June 2019 (UTC)
  • In April of 2015 you were blocked indefinitely as there was reason to believe your account had been compromised. You admitted that you can't help but edit disruptively as a joke sometimes and, as a condition of your unblock, you agreed that you would never make such edits again. You were told in clear terms that any return to this behavior would result in the indef block being reinstated. Since that time you have been reblocked many times due to ongoing disruption and your inability to control yourself resulting in attacks on other editors. As you have again vandalised Wikipedia and mocked editors who questioned your actions, including calling them "trolls" in your edit summary, I have reinstated your block of April 2015 as you have violated the terms you agreed to in your appeal.-- Jezebel's Ponyobons mots 22:47, 18 June 2019 (UTC)
  • Checkuser Note There is no indication whatsover that this account has been compromised.-- Jezebel's Ponyobons mots 22:53, 18 June 2019 (UTC)
