If you think that you can create a user name just to leave inappropriate comments on someone else's talk page, think again. That sort of trolling may very well get you banned. - Lucky 6.9 00:20, 17 Apr 2005 (UTC)

  • Thank you for your polite and very welcome response. I hope I didn't come off as harsh, but this site gets trolled like you can't believe. That said, I'd like to be the first to welcome you aboard! Now that you know how to access my talk page, please don't hesitate to do so if you have any questions. - Lucky 6.9 00:30, 17 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Impulse buying[edit]

Please stop creating articles like this. This article is a huge waste of time for everyone involved, which I am starting to suspect is your actual motivation; the original content is borderline vandalism. The fact that you continue to create nonsense articles, and switch usernames indiscriminately makes it increasingly difficult to believe that you are not a troll. Also, don't just create a talk page for the article stating pre-empting the vfd notice. The article should stand based on its own merits, if you suspect that your article will be deleted, your time would be better spent improving the article. --DropDeadGorgias (talk) 19:18, Apr 18, 2005 (UTC)

No one is contesting that the concept of an "impulse buy" is a legitimate concept (although the use of a gerund in the title is somewhat awkward, certainly impulse purchase might be a more appropriate title). However, the content is completely unencyclopedic. There is no real connection between an impulse buy and spontaneous combustion, and the inclusion of these terms makes your article useless. Even if a real article on impulse buying is created, almost no content from your edit can be reused. --DropDeadGorgias (talk) 19:23, Apr 18, 2005 (UTC)
  • Samurai, you should know that you are this close to being run up on a request for arbitration. Please see your RfC talk page. - Lucky 6.9 23:06, 18 Apr 2005 (UTC)
  • At least you've admitted something, namely that you are using a sockpuppet account. - Lucky 6.9 01:40, 19 Apr 2005 (UTC)
  • In response to your comment on Android's page: Your contributions are becoming a huge deal of work for other users to bring up to standards. Once again, you've elected to comment on something that has nothing to do with the issue whatsoever. I did not make fun of your user name, for crying out loud! I simply pointed out the similarities. If the word "portmanteau" threw you off a bit, go here to get a definition. OK? I mean, really. I've been trying to help but there are times when I've literally pulled my hair out over you. - Lucky 6.9 02:14, 19 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Magic sword[edit]

To your credit, your article managed to uncover a glaring oversight. It's sparked a rather lively VfD debate and subsequent cleanup. I honestly wish to thank you for finding this and planting the seeds of a new and useful article. BUT...this goes back to one of the roots of the problem, namely your continued lack of research before starting an article. If you would have simply added one or two references outside a magic sword's use in RPG's and the avoidance of the rather obvious statement that magic swords can be used for stabbing, we wouldn't be having this discussion. - Lucky 6.9 19:23, 19 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Last warning[edit]

Even setting aside the sock puppet allegations, a lot of people have been very patient with you. Clearly nonsensical edits constitute vandalism and will not be tolerated. One more example of such conduct and I will block you without further discussion, and with a deaf ear to any spurious protests of innocence or ignorance. Postdlf 19:24, 19 Apr 2005 (UTC)

This is the response on Postdlf's talk page. I happened to stumble across this when I wandered in to ask a question: I have no intent for vandalism. My modern contributions are thought of as good additions to Wikipedia. Also, I don't cosider all (just some) VfD articles to be vandalism. Can you explain what contributions are considered vandalism, if you do, I might have better contrast between bogus and acceptable contributions in the future. --SuperDude 21:25, 19 Apr 2005 (UTC) I give up. There is no getting through to this individual. AFAIK, no one ever will. Listen up, man: All of us involved in this matter have made it crystal clear as to what constitutes a good edit and a poor edit. You even admit to vandalism in the above statement! That alone is probably reason enough for a permanent ban WITHOUT the hassle of a request for arbitration. READ THE PREVIOUS COMMENTS AND SUGGESTIONS LEFT BY MYSELF AND OTHER USERS AS WELL. Now do you understand? - Lucky 6.9 23:03, 19 Apr 2005 (UTC)

"Nazism Comedy." Right.[edit]

This is quite possibly the most distasteful thing I've ever seen on Wikipedia that doesn't involve a certain act of self-gratification. Please stop trolling. androidtalk 01:21, Apr 20, 2005 (UTC)

Grand Theftendo[edit]

SuperDude, I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised by your article Grand Theftendo. The Wikipedia:Google test shows about 14,000 hits for the concept, so it passes. However, I reverted your addition to the Grand Theft Auto (series) article, as the 8-bit port is already mention. I hope that all you continue to limit your contributions to notable articles like this. Good job! --DropDeadGorgias (talk) 02:35, Apr 20, 2005 (UTC)

I agree with DDG that this latest article is a good start and I also thank you for your note on my page. We all hope you mean it. I admit that I haven't read your original entry as of yet, but if DropDead says it was a winner, I believe him. As for Android's concern that your comment about mixing Nazism and comedy was out of line, it was. Considering what the Nazis did, the comment was not in the best of taste. At least you did the comment on a talk page and not the main article space. FWIW, I can think of a few instances where the Nazis were lampooned in comedy, but not by "Nazi comedians." The Three Stooges did it in several shorts, Mel Brooks did it in "The Producers" and "Blazing Saddles," Charlie Chaplin did it as "The Great Dictator" and even Daffy Duck did it. Donald Duck too, for that matter. Cartoon studios in the war years put out a bunch of propaganda films, some of which were hilarious. One that Warner Brothers did that showed Hitler getting just savaged by a bunch of "gremlins" on board a German bomber is a classic. A Daffy Duck short spawned a hit record called "Der Fuehrer's Face" by Spike Jones, one of the greatest novelty records of all time. - Lucky 6.9 03:09, 20 Apr 2005 (UTC)

  • I just looked at the original "Grand Theftendo" entry. That is a magnificent start to an an article. Some real thought and research went into this. It's also a prime example of the types of unusual and esoteric articles that make Wikipedia what it is. - Lucky 6.9 03:17, 20 Apr 2005 (UTC)
  • While I'm here, I might as well direct your attention back to Magic sword. Do you have anything that you can add to it...? - Lucky 6.9 03:20, 20 Apr 2005 (UTC)
    • GREAT news. The external link had a screenshot. Screenshots are deemed fair use. Booyah! Check it out! - Lucky 6.9 03:32, 20 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

I'm very pleased. Really. If the "Grand Theftendo" entry is any indication, you're finally catching on. Since you seem to be settling down, I'd like to suggest that you decide on a single user name. I personally liked "TheSamurai," but it's entirely up to you. When you do decide, I strongly suggest you create a user page. If you're sincere about this, you'll find that you have friends literally spread across the globe. I'd also suggest that you run an editing idea or comment before another user before leaving something in the main article space. You're not bound by this at all. It's just a suggestion to help you along so that there's no mistaking good edits from bad in the future. Did you happen to see how Grand Theftendo has progressed? - Lucky 6.9 04:29, 20 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Grand Theftendo: nice[edit]

Good work. Good article. Dpbsmith (talk) 12:09, 20 Apr 2005 (UTC)


Hi. Actually, I was only presuming you were autistic based on your edits. Some were great, some were really, really weird. The fact that I couldn't seem to get you to understand what you were doing led me to presume it as well. If you really are autistic, you'd be the first autistic Wikipedian that I'm aware of. It also makes it a lot easier for all of us involved with you to understand you in return and to guide you. In fact, I admire you for admitting something that deeply personal on an open forum. That takes guts. I only wish you'd admitted it sooner! If you're willing to accept some assistance in bringing your contributions in line with the site's requirements, I'm certain that you'll find a lot of other folks besides yours truly willing to help you along. - Lucky 6.9 15:53, 20 Apr 2005 (UTC)

It looks as if we're on the verge of finally settling this RfC issue. I predict you're going to have a lot of friends here once you get started on the path to really good editing. You're on your way! Next step: Decide on a single user name. You seem to like "SuperDude115," so why not stick with it? - Lucky 6.9 18:42, 20 Apr 2005 (UTC)

'Tis OK, lad. It's like I said. Now that we understand your situation a little bit better, we can help you do some great things here. Don't worry about the "sockpuppet" thing anymore. That's over as far as I'm concerned. You just need to choose one name. That's very important. Once you do, some of us will keep an eye on your edits. We'll help guide you and advise you as well. If you make a bogus edit, someone will let you know and they'll be nice about it. No more anger. We'll either save it, fix it or tag it for speedy deletion so a bogus edit doesn't get dragged through VfD. I have a project that I'd like your help with. There is a badly written article on VfD about a boulevard in New York that connects Long Island with NYC. The article says the boulevard is 100 miles long. I'd like to clean that article up. Any single street 100 miles long is worth an article, don't you agree? Let me know if you'd like to help with that article. I think it will be a good writing exercise for you. What do you think? Would you like to help me? - Lucky 6.9 00:58, 21 Apr 2005 (UTC)

An Apology[edit]

Howdy. Now that the fact that you're autistic has been revealed, I feel I owe you something of an apology. I had a hunch, based on your edits to the Autism article and your general pattern of behavior that you might be autistic. I had a roommate with Asperger's syndrome for a summer, and even though I met him personally and only know you through Wikipedia, I recognized some of your behavior as being very similar to his. Anyway, I now regret not acting on that hunch. If it had come to light sooner, it would have saved you, me, and many others a lot of frustration, and for that I am sorry.

However, I am still concerned about your contributions to Wikipedia. We may have come off as a bit harsh sometimes, but keep in mind that we thought we were dealing with a malicious user, and most, if not all, of our criticisms of your edits still apply. Now that we have an understanding, there's no longer a need for any harsh measures such as blocking or banning, and we can help you become a valuable contributor. You may ask me for advice at any time, and I think it would be great if you take Lucky's offer of help. Take care. androidtalk 01:32, Apr 21, 2005 (UTC)

I assume by despite of null malice you mean users who make bogus contributions without malicious intentions. Such users would only be banned if they continued to make bogus edits after being taken to an arbitration committee – which, fortunately, didn't happen in your case. androidtalk 01:49, Apr 21, 2005 (UTC)

I agree with Android79. Don't take his comment about criticism of your edits the wrong way. It only means that we'll be watching what you do and point out whether or not the edit is bogus. Don't be afraid to make an edit. You won't get in any trouble. We'll be here to help you along and to show you what you did and how you may correct it. If more of your edits are like the one you did for the video game, you'll be fine. Relax and have fun. - Lucky 6.9 04:42, 21 Apr 2005 (UTC)

By the way, I'm sorry too. - Lucky 6.9 04:45, 21 Apr 2005 (UTC)

  • Follow-up comment: Only those who have broken the rules in a big way would be banned. Those are users who have gone through arbitration and continue to make bogus contributions. That isn't you. Now that we know more about you (and you know more about us), no one will ever accuse you of malice. We're here to help you and to guide you. Please don't worry one bit. You are a special person with a special skill and we really need you here to help make this a better place. So, relax and enjoy yourself, SuperDude! You are a Wikipedian in good standing and we welcome you to the club. - Lucky 6.9 18:06, 21 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Nice work![edit]

Yo, SD! Glad to see you making some really nice edits! I left a comment on the talk page over at Talk:Jet aircraft about your ideas. There's an article at business jet already, which is probably as close to the definition of a "compact jet" as you'll find. If you've ever seen a Beechcraft King Air turboprop up close, that's one BIG sucker compared to say, a Cessna 152 or Piper Cub. $2,000,000 worth of big.  :^) Take a look over at Lear Jet. - Lucky 6.9 01:00, 22 Apr 2005 (UTC)

  • You're not upset, are you? I'm only trying to help. When I looked at your contributions, I was very impressed. I'm not dumping on you if that's what you mean. - Lucky 6.9 01:09, 22 Apr 2005 (UTC)
  • LOL! Oh, that's a relief! Yes, I really am trying to watch out for you. I've been busy at work and I thought I'd check your contributions. You've been busy, too! If you'd like, I won't take up too much room on your talk page. Really. You won't even know I'm here!  :^) - Lucky 6.9 01:15, 22 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Cold heat[edit]

Can you find anything else to add to the Cold heat article you recently created? It looks like it is not long enough. Some people might think it looks more like an advertisement for that product than an actual encyclopedia article, and might put it on VFD. Thanks. Zzyzx11 | Talk 05:00, 22 Apr 2005 (UTC)

  • Yes, I know it has a lot of hits on the search engines. The problem is that it needs to be written so it does not look like an ad. The trick is that it has to be written in an objective and unbiased style and it is relevant enough to merit an article. And it helps if we can cite sources from other third parties, such as reviews from other people. Does that make sense? Zzyzx11 | Talk 05:12, 22 Apr 2005 (UTC)
    • SuperDude, just because it has a large amount of hits on Yahoo and Google does not necessarily mean that it should be here on Wikipedia. As I examine that listings on Yahoo and Google, almost all of them are web sites that are selling the Cold heat tool. I see a lot of ads for it too. But it is hard to find objective content from third parties
  • I do electronic soldering quite often since one of my hobbies is radio controlled cars and planes. I've never used a "Cold Heat" iron, but I've certainly heard of them. They're quite innovative. The article just needs a little tweak to make it sound less like an ad. I'll try and do something when I have more time. Today at work is NUTS. There is no busier job on earth than being production manager for two radio stations when Friday rolls around. No fun. We're at [1] if you're interested. I pre-record the weekday 7-midnight shift, but I don't have a picture or bio up yet. The site's just been redone. As for my guessing that you were from Livonia, I was basing it on your Livonia Mall article. I was close, right?  :^) Oh, and thanks for turning me on to Stupid Videos! I love it! I have a really fast new computer at home. That and Verizon DSL make for a real streaming experience. - Lucky 6.9 20:33, 22 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Image copyright tags[edit]

I noticed you have been uploading a few images recently. Remember that you should add an image copyright tag to each one of those images to let us know its copyright status? (You can use {{gfdl}} if you release it under the GFDL, or {{fairuse}} if you claim fair use, etc.) If you don't know what any of this means, just let me know where you got the images and I'll tag them for you. Thanks. Zzyzx11 | Talk 05:46, 23 Apr 2005 (UTC)

  • Ok, just make sure you go back and put {{GFDL}} on the other images you uploaded. Thanks. Zzyzx11 | Talk 05:52, 23 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Requested moves[edit]

A reminder, if you want to request a page move, please follow the directions on Wikipedia:Requested moves. Thanks. Zzyzx11 | Talk 01:43, 24 Apr 2005 (UTC)


Please be a little more careful with your accusations. I did not create Alexa Davis: you will see that I actually listed it on VfD with my edit. It had, however, just been deleted, which gave the impression that I had created it. I'm sorry for any confusion, but do look more carefully. Smoddy (Rabbit and pork) 17:01, 25 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Tickle dating service article[edit]

Hi! Nice start to the article and I think it will pass VfD. The reason it was put on VfD was the advertising language like "convenient" and "easy to use." I took the ads out and voted to keep the article. Others have voted to keep it too, so don't worry. Back to my Wikivacation...see you! - Lucky 6.9 04:19, 27 Apr 2005 (UTC)

"Black sitcoms"[edit]

Please stop adding sitcom articles to your new category "Black sitcoms." That term is fine for an article in itself but it more or less a fabricated term and there isn't any reason why someone would think to look for the article about, say, "The Cosby Show" under "Category:Black Sitcoms" as opposed to just "Category:Sitcoms." The trend is toward more consolidated rather than more split-up categories and it just doesn't make any sense to add this new cat. I suppose if you feel very adamant about this you could add the new category but please don't remove the "Category:Sitcoms" label - they are all also sitcoms, as well as having mostly black casts. We don't have subcategories for other sitcoms, so why would we for this particular reason? I'll get comment from others at Request for Comments if you continue to do this. Are you planning to make a category for "White sitcoms" next? Moncrief 23:40, Apr 28, 2005 (UTC)

I don't personally think that it's overloaded at all but if you want to break it down, I would (A) Get some kind of consensus first; and (B) start with a more logical breakdown, such as "CBS sitcoms," "NBC sitcoms," etc. Again, I think breaking down AT ALL is wholly unecessary and I think the network division may be just as confusing, but at least it's a more logical way to do it. I would leave a note on the Category:Sitcoms discussion page. Personally, though, I think it's just fine the way it is. Moncrief 23:47, Apr 28, 2005 (UTC)


Hi SuperDude115 - I note you've created a new stub category. Did you realise that stub categories should normally be cleared by Wikipedia:WikiProject Stub sorting before creation? That way they can be vetted to check that there are a viable number of stubs (at least 60-100) and that the category does not cross the existing stub hierarchy before the stub is created.

If you can provide any information on why these stubs were created, please add a note to entry for these stubs at Wikipedia:WikiProject Stub sorting/Criteria#Newly-discovered stub categories giving the reason for the stubs. In addition, if there is any Wikiproject associated with these stubs add that information. Thanks.

In this case, the stub category is unlikely to reach vicability level any time soon (there are less than 60 articles on Doom as a whole, let alone 60 stubs. And the topic is already covered adequately by other stub categories - so it's not surprising that someone seems to have already put the stub template up for deletion.

If you're interested in helping sort stubs, though, we're always looking for new members of the project! Grutness|hello? 00:51, 2 May 2005 (UTC)

Pandeism train wreck VfD[edit]

Hi, I was wondering if you'd care to throw your two cents in on the official train wreck (mostly my fault, I'm afraid) called the Pandeism VfD? I'm keen to see it kept! -- BD2412 thimk 03:56, 2005 May 3 (UTC)

  • Hey, now, I shouldered a load of work to keep the Magic sword article - so I know you can understand how sometimes things get VfD'd when they deserve to be developed. -- BD2412 thimk 04:28, 2005 May 3 (UTC)
    • OK, don't worry about it, then. -- BD2412 thimk 04:34, 2005 May 3 (UTC)

Undivided Interstates[edit]

I would if there were other undivided Interstates (other than at toll booths and the like). --SPUI (talk) 03:30, 12 May 2005 (UTC)

Policy creation[edit]

SuperDude115, please discuss policy proposals before attempting to implement them on a widescale. For example, Wikipedia:Hoax, Wikipedia:Neologism and Category:Pages on votes for deletion again were both creations of yours, but you attempted to push them as new policy without discussing them at all. I would suggest you hesitate from creating any new pages in the Wikipedia namespace before consulting the Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard. --DropDeadGorgias (talk) 22:18, May 13, 2005 (UTC)

In use[edit]

Did you put the inuse template up on the sandbox? If so, I'm sorry for interferring. I thought it had been put up there a while back as a joke or something. *Kat* 06:38, May 21, 2005 (UTC)

I wasn't accusing you of anything. I was apologizing for interfering, which I guess I wasn't. *Kat* 00:16, May 22, 2005 (UTC)

Combs method and "poetry stub"[edit]

Why on Earth did you change the stub tag of Combs method to the poetry stub? It hasn't the slightest bit to do with poetry. Sure, the stub tag needed updating, but not to that. :) - furrykef (Talk at me) 07:25, 24 May 2005 (UTC)

Attention for talk, please[edit]

On this. You added the template Attetion. Since I cannot see the background, I removed it. Please go to Talk, I'd like to know what king of attention. -DePiep 11:14, 31 May 2005 (UTC)

"Party" stub[edit]

I changed the stub tag on Nightlife back to the generic stub, rather than the "party" stub. At first glance, it seems like "party" works well, but it's actually referring to political parties. Joyous 02:59, Jun 5, 2005 (UTC)

comedy wiki[edit]

Thanks for the invitation/info . Looks like a great project and cure for wikistress.--Jondel 05:28, 13 Jun 2005 (UTC)

comedy project[edit]

I'd like to help out. Maybe it would be good to make a pitch at the BJAODN. I don't know if I told you this but there is a certain law which Congress enacted and I think you need to be aware about.--Jondel 04:24, 14 Jun 2005 (UTC)

VfD on a user page[edit]

Dude, your attachment of a VfD template to User:Lucky 6.9 is bizarre. Do you have any reason to think that User:Lucky 6.9 (a) wants it removed and (b) is incapable of asking for this himself? Did you for example click on the email link of his page and email him to ask him this?

You say Remove user from Wikipedia. Also, I have been lectured by him numerous times! I'm glad he's outta here! Actually Lucky 6.9 put a great amount of energy into attempting to reason with you and your other ID, User:SamuraiClinton, back in April, rather than simply having you banned. While statements of gratitude are not necessary, complaints are undeserved. -- Hoary 06:35, 2005 Jun 14 (UTC)


Hi, SuperDude. I strongly recommend that you withdraw your nomination to delete User:Lucky 6.9. In general, wide latitude is given for user space, so something has to be pretty severe to get deleted. Prolonged or permanent absence from Wikipedia, unless one is banned, is not grounds for deletion. Furthermore, Lucky 6.9 spent a great deal of time trying to help you to make positive contributions and to interact smoothly with the Wikipedia community. I don't know if you meant this VfD as a joke, but it is pretty mean to speak like this about someone who tried to help you. — Knowledge Seeker 06:08, 14 Jun 2005 (UTC)

It's all right; no harm is done if you withdraw your nomination now. If you are willing to do so, edit Wikipedia:Votes for deletion/Lucky 6.9 and leave a note at the bottom that you are withdrawing the nomination. Then, remove the notice from User:Lucky 6.9. You are right that there are several user pages up for deletion. These are almost always controversial, as many editors are very reluctant to touch a user's own space. In general, if you look at the nominations, it is because the editors have very few contributions to Wikipedia and are using the user space improperly, for instance, as advertising for their business. I'm telling you this so you know for next time; I can understand why you were confused.
I remember your RfC. You have to realize that the contributions you were making were somewhat problematic, and people were having trouble getting through to you. If you look at the RfC, it is about people wanting to help you contribute to Wikipedia, not who were angry at you. We value your contributions to Wikipedia; when someone does something that doesn't quite belong, the nice thing to do is let them know about it. That's what I'm doing here. I'm not upset with you; it's just that this is how we improve, when others point out things that we could be doing differently. People let me know when I could do something better, too. Does this make sense? — Knowledge Seeker 06:30, 14 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Stop editing other people's User pages. RickK 06:42, Jun 14, 2005 (UTC)

I don't know who said what about throwing muck, but I realize you were well-meaning. Don't forget to withdraw your nomination—this is important. Edit Wikipedia:Votes for deletion/Lucky 6.9 and leave a comment at the bottom saying something like "I withdaw this nomination" or "I made this nomination in error and withdraw it" and don't forget to sign. And maybe thank Lucky for all the effort he spent in helping you. Don't worry; SuperDude did give you a fresh start—don't worry about old times; just concentrate on how you can help Wikipedia now. — Knowledge Seeker 07:12, 14 Jun 2005 (UTC)
Thanks! I consider this matter closed; if you have any questions about anything on Wikipedia just let me know. Happy editing! — Knowledge Seeker 20:41, 14 Jun 2005 (UTC)


Hi !The project is good and it would be good to invite some wikipedians once in a while. I hope you continue and will support you.--Jondel 00:15, 15 Jun 2005 (UTC)


Is not mine. I modified it and put the words 'The king'. This has been done before and should take care of copyright issues.--Jondel 00:31, 17 Jun 2005 (UTC)


I don't need that Wikicity; I write articles here. --SPUI (talk) 01:39, 20 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Delete Lucky 6.9?[edit]

Looks like I'm back for now...and I have to tell you, I got a kick out of seeing how you put my user page up for deletion. You are SUCH a nut.  :^P - Lucky 6.9 17:04, 20 Jun 2005 (UTC)

LOL! Hey, not to worry. You're in Michigan...I'm in California. This means I can't come over and give you a noogie.  :^))

Seriously, one of the fun things about Wikipedia is it encourages you to be bold in your editing. You thought you were doing the right thing and in a way, you were. I really was planning to stay away for good but I decided to focus my attention on other facets of Wikipedia. I have to admit I kinda missed you. I popped in as an anon every so often and I was truly amazed by the volume of work you're turning out. Oh, and I promise no more lectures unless you're being naughty. Frankly, I'm not worried. You've really taken to the water. Now that I'm back, give a holler on my talk page any time you have a question or concern. Later, gator! - Lucky 6.9 20:35, 20 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Highway/freeway list[edit]

Interesting list, SD. I added three western highways: 89, 95 and 101. 89 and 95 are freeways in Nevada and Utah; 101 is the Ventura Freeway and Hollywood Freeway in LA and the Embarcadero Freeway in San Francisco. - Lucky 6.9 06:05, 24 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Vandalism do's and dont's[edit]

SD, please use a bit more discretion in regards to vandalism accusations. Phil Welsh didn't do anything to deserve a vandalism report. OK? Thanks. - Lucky 6.9 19:26, 25 Jun 2005 (UTC)


Hi, SD. I 'm thrilled that you're working so hard here. I really am. However, I think some of your recent edits are a bit outside of what this site is supposed to be.

Lists are OK to a point. BUT...they should be lists that a user might actually look up. A title like "List of Cy Young Award winners" would be extremely iseful to a baseball fan. "List of Motor Trend Cars Of The Year" would be of tremendous interest to an automotive historian. There's a wonderfully fun and ever-expanding list of unusual place names. I've added a lot to it. Get the idea? No one, and I mean no one, will type the titles you've created into the search box. Remember: Keep the end user in mind. This is supposed to be a research site. So, let's help keep the researching easy. Think back to some of your other edits, namely Cold Heat and Grand Theftendo. Not only are those useful subjects of general interest, they've actually grown and florished. Let me know if you have any questions, OK? - Lucky 6.9 30 June 2005 02:38 (UTC)

You may not have been following the discussion at Wikipedia:Votes for deletion/List of musicians that are popular amongst Nickelodeon fans. Whilst quite a few editors have expressed their opinion that a list such as that simply won't work, a few have endorsed the suggestion that a different List of musicians that have made guest appearances on Nickelodeon shows would be more acceptable and more in line with the aims of Wikipedia. Since you appear to have knowledge of Nickelodeon, please add some more entries to that newer list. Uncle G 2005-07-02 22:45:24 (UTC)

List of movies[edit]

Hello. I was looking at the history of the list of movies page and noticed that you simply redirected it to lists of films. It appears that you created lists of films without knowing that list of movies existed but you chose to redirect the existing article. All pages and redirect pages, not to mention interwiki pages, still point to the original page. Is there any particular reason you chose not to modify the existing list of movies and have lists of films redirect to it? Furthermore it appears that you copy and pasted the contents of the original talk page to the other one. If moving an article, or even a talk page, you should always use the move feature. If you feel lists of films is where the article should be located, I would recommend merging your changes into list of movies and request a move at Wikipedia:Requested moves. --TheDotGamer Talk June 30, 2005 22:10 (UTC)

EverLife Flashlight[edit]

Nice job! And no, that didn't come off as an ad. Since the proper name of the unit is EverLife Flashlight as opposed to "Everlife flashlight," I tweaked the info a bit and moved the page there. I happen to think that any or all of these direct marketing items are encyclopedic, so if these float your boat, keep 'em coming! Hope you had a great 4th, BTW. Keep up the great work.

VfD - GTA vehicle list[edit]

re: Wikipedia:Votes for deletion/List of vehicles from Grand Theft Auto

I'd just like to leave a message to say I put this article up for voting for deletion. It's not personal, and I wanted to direct you to the voting page as you created the article. — Cuahl 02:51, 18 July 2005 (UTC)


I have reverted your recent change to Template:Mapquest. Please see Template talk:Mapquest#SuperDude115's new version for my reasons why. BlankVerse 10:10, 27 July 2005 (UTC)


Hi, SD! Long time no see. As for your question, no, I'm not currently signed up, but I'd like to be. I recently signed up at the simple English Wikipedia and I'm having a wonderful time there. Do you have a particular Wikicity site that you enjoy posting to? - Lucky 6.9 20:03, 27 July 2005 (UTC)


Hi! I believe in contributing articles.and fun and comedy . Some people take things too seriously . There are lots of articles from the BJAODN which can be uploaded. In fact I polish some up and upload some to the wikicomedy once in a while. Humor really is good for the spirit.--Jondel 00:02, 28 July 2005 (UTC)

Obscene images good work[edit]

Good work deleting all the obscene images. Unfortunately, there is a troll and troublemaker User:-Ril- who is going around causing problems if he does not like you, doing everything he can to disrupt Wiki. Could you check his User contribution page [2] and make sure the articles are still candidates for deletion? Thanks. --Noitall 21:33, July 28, 2005 (UTC)

Images containing nudity that aren't used anywhere in Wikipedia articles are probably good to get rid of, but they can't be speedily deleted. I appreciate your effort to clean out those images that were not being used in articles, but you also tagged four images that were being used in articles. Gratuitous nudity is bad; nudity used to illustrate an article is useful, as Wikipedia is not censored for the protection of minors. As you already know, policy on Wikipedia is achieved through discussion and consensus. Declaring new policy and immediately carrying it out is not the way to do things. If you want to change Wikipedia's policy on nudity and censorship, you might want to discuss it at Wikipedia talk:What Wikipedia is not, but I doubt there will be much support for censoring images.

Wikipedia:Obscene image[edit]

Hello, and thanks for your input on Wikipedia:Obscene image. However, to become official policy a proposal needs to attain a strong consensus among Wikipedians. This is why the page has been modified to reflect the fact that it is a proposal, not a policy. In addition, the proposal is contrary to the policy page WP:NOT, which states that censorship is not allowed on Wikipedia. If you wish to challenge that view, please do so on Wikipedia talk:What Wikipedia is not. The article Wikipedia:Obscene image has been listed for deletion (you may view its entry here), as well as some other pages relating to it. Particularly your requests for speedy deletion of 'obscene' content are bound to cause confusion, since perceived obscenity is not any kind of premise for deletion on Wikipedia. - ulayiti (talk) 00:24, 29 July 2005 (UTC)

Yeah, I understand that, but by definition, 'obscene' images are not candidates for speedy deletion (or any other kind of deletion, for that matter) unless they have been created deliberately to disrupt Wikipedia. For example, the article on pornography might well contain pornographic images to illustrate the article. Wikipedia is not censored, for anyone, including minors. By the way, the proposed policy you created now looks bound for deletion at VfD. You're welcome to take part in the debate if you wish. - ulayiti (talk) 09:40, 29 July 2005 (UTC)

Re: Your username[edit]

  • To Wikipedians, your username may sound malicious hence the devil in it. One time, I had a nickname called "GoofyGuy", and other Wikipedians though I did malicious vandalism on Wikipedia. You could mask your username with a nickname. I suggest you nickname yourself "Clown master". --SuperDude 06:32, 7 August 2005 (UTC)
    • Wouldn't "Clown master" be even worse? It could be interpreted as "a clown who vandalizes Wikipedia pages to be funny", in the same way "GoofyGuy" has been misunderstood! Moreover, one who doubts that I'm the author of any vandalisms can always look at my contributions and see I never vandalized anything - in fact, I fixed vandalisms more than once. -- Devil Master 19:03, 9 August 2005, MET

Stub line[edit]

I deleted said article due to the fact that it serves no purpose other than duplicating partially the contents of Wikipedia:Stub, to no benefit. --Sn0wflake 00:22, 10 August 2005 (UTC)

Stubs and parent categories[edit]

I've noticed that on some of the flim articles you've been adding stub templates to you've been removing categories (for example, The Big Bus recieved a comedy film stub and lost the comedy film category). Please don't do that, stub templates and category tags are independant of each other and both should be present. Bryan 22:32, 11 August 2005 (UTC)
