Comment on Mall's talk page

Pedro, I posted a long comment here, which somewhat addresses you and Keeper in addition to Malleus. It's likely you'll find it on your own, just posting here to be prudent. Gwynand | TalkContribs 21:35, 18 May 2008 (UTC)

Yes, read and digested. Thoughtful and insightful. Pedro :  Chat  15:09, 20 May 2008 (UTC)
I appreciate that you read it. +3000 byte entries might not be read by most though, I'll probably try to condense my silly soapbox comments in the future. Gwynand | TalkContribs 15:20, 20 May 2008 (UTC)

abusive edits


This page was vandalised and I notice that the chap who did this has been warned by you before. I have undone his change but would like you to ban him please.

The user is

Hope you can help.

Hiya. In general we don't "ban" IP addresses. They can be blocked for various lengths of time according to the situation. This IP is dynamic, and opertated by NTL who are a broadband provider. So it is likely that if I blocked now it would not effect the editor who made the bad edit, but might stop someone else instead. Hope that clarifies things Pedro :  Chat  11:29, 19 May 2008 (UTC)

Thank you

Thank you for correcting Lake Champlain and tagging's talk page. The district has identified the students involved and are taking appropriate action. --NERIC-Security (talk) 17:58, 19 May 2008 (UTC)


Hi. I would like to have rollback rights. I have over 400 edits. I spend some considerable time reverting, but sometimes I am turned away by vandalising of pages rapidly. Please reply as soon as possible. Thanks.LAAFan 00:11, 18 May 2008 (UTC)

Hello Pedro/Archive 25! I'd like to leave a note of appreciation for your recent support of my request for adminship, which ended successfully today (and to my surprise) with 83 supports, 4 opposes, and 2 neutral. What I have taken back from my RFA is that I've perhaps been too robust in debate and I will endevour to improve upon that aspect of my usership. I would like to thank you again and state here that I will not let any of my fellow Wikipedian's down. Thanks again! --Jza84 |  Talk  11:30, 21 May 2008 (UTC)
P.S. A special personal thanks goes to you Pedro. :) --Jza84 |  Talk  11:30, 21 May 2008 (UTC)


For your most recently given rollback, this looks to be the most recent (actually maybe only) vandalism revert using Twinkle. Definitely not vandalism. Gwynand | TalkContribs 15:07, 21 May 2008 (UTC)

Agreed, and I did pause on this editor quite a bit, due to warnings on his talk page and a lack of twinkle / undo use. However this give me confidence he's heeded my words, in that I have explicitly pointed the editor to WP:RBK. If he misuses it, it'll be removed sans drama. Pedro :  Chat  15:11, 21 May 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, agreed. You probably noticed it anyways, just thougth I'd give a heads up to make sure he doesn't start reverting perceived page blanks, something I've been seeing as a problem recently. Gwynand | TalkContribs 15:14, 21 May 2008 (UTC)
On a somewhat related note, is this a correct page move "per wikipedia naming conventions"?Gwynand | TalkContribs 15:17, 21 May 2008 (UTC)
Well, naming conventions are fluid not bound. However where there is no need for a disambiguation there's no need to specify the field of notability (that's my understanding). Therefore you're right, It does seem a bit pointless, unless there's another Wendy Oldfield out there. However, as they say, re-directs are cheap! Pedro :  Chat  15:26, 21 May 2008 (UTC)
That one doesn't look like a big deal, but I might drop him a note about future page moves based on naming convetions. Thanks for the info. Gwynand | TalkContribs 15:35, 21 May 2008 (UTC)
Yep, worth giving him a heads up and a point to WP:NAME if you've got time. Pedro :  Chat  15:36, 21 May 2008 (UTC)

Does this ring a bell?

Maybe a sockblock in order, check out the only deleted contrib from today of this user. Wasn't that Peterpipper's thing? Keeper | 76 | Disclaimer 18:43, 21 May 2008 (UTC)

A reminder of Mr. Pipper's "invitation" to you...Keeper | 76 | Disclaimer 18:47, 21 May 2008 (UTC)
Blatant. I'm blocking. Thanks for the heads up! Pedro :  Chat  20:10, 21 May 2008 (UTC)
You are so so late to this particular party. What, got a family or something? Keeper | 76 | Disclaimer 20:15, 21 May 2008 (UTC)
Yeah - kids and wife are so inconsiderate - do they not realise there's important stuff to be done?!?! Just declined the unblock on this guy. Joy.... Pedro :  Chat  20:18, 21 May 2008 (UTC)
I'm willing to bet a paycheck he'll be back. Probably already is. Keeper | 76 | Disclaimer 20:22, 21 May 2008 (UTC)

Guaranteed he'll be back. Fortunately, as abusive puppet masters go we have one distinct advantage on this one. He's as thick as Suinae excrement (possibly a Brit phrase). WP:DFTT - If I see this fool in action again I'm just going to block asap. AGF goes to the ends of the earth for me. Luckily this fellow is on the moon, so he doesn't get included. Pedro :  Chat  20:30, 21 May 2008 (UTC)

"Yeah - kids and wife are so inconsiderate - do they not realise there's important stuff to be done?!?!" Does your wife know you said that? :) RC-0722 247.5/1 20:36, 21 May 2008 (UTC)
Given that I want to stay married ..... Nope! Pedro :  Chat  20:50, 21 May 2008 (UTC)
