KaiAdin,

Sysop privileges are required to delete pages in the Category:Pages_to_delete category. Let me know if you're interesting in becoming one. More details of the duties and responsibilities of Sysops are listed on BluWiki:Sysop. --Sam Odio 13:31, 2 April 2007 (EDT)

I've made you a sysop. Welcome to the team! And remember what they say, with great power comes great responsibility - please use it wisely! --Sam Odio 08:46, 3 April 2007 (EDT)

Mature template

Metropolis of Shock Sites seems to have a problem with the Mature template I posted on his site. BluWiki is required by US law to keep that template up, or else I could be fined or even imprisoned. Can you help me make sure it stays there?

See Talk:Shock_Sites for more. --Sam Odio 10:44, 5 April 2007 (EDT)

Shock Sites

WOW, this page is like a magnet for vandals!--Metropolisforever 10:35, 9 April 2007 (EDT)

Vandalism

I'm impressed w/ the reverts. You consistently beat me to the punch :) --Sam Odio 04:33, 16 April 2007 (EDT)

Mainpage

Any way of redirecting the mainpage to my one? Microchip08 08:47, 2 May 2007 (EDT)

I've tried, but I don't quite understand. I've moved the page I want to Noadswood, but when I type [[1]], it doesn't work. Can you please sort it out for me? Microchip08 06:11, 3 May 2007 (EDT)

OK. Scratch that. It's working now. I just had to clear cache. Microchip08 06:16, 3 May 2007 (EDT)

:-)

I haven't put it on live yet, so it's not publicised, but if you look at the school IP's block log on Wikipedia (which for some reason I can't find}, they've had over 30 blocks, 2 of which for over a year... (It's now an indef anon-only block). However, I'd like to be a sysop because...

  1. I've nothing better to do
  2. I want to say I am one
  3. I want to help Bluwiki
  4. The website will be vandalised, there's no doubt about it...
  5.  :-)

Yours Microchip08 14:36, 6 May 2007 (EDT)


Have you familiarized yourself with the role of a sysop? Can you commit yourself to that role? --Sam Odio 20:55, 6 May 2007 (EDT)

Road Not Taken

Making a merry little club, here. In that case, you might like {{roadnottaken}}, which I for some reason can't get working. I like TRNT because I've got a severely disabled sister. Oops, didn't sign. Microchip08 06:50, 7 May 2007 (EDT)

Danke for removing template. Wasn't sure if I needed it, but I thought that it could always be {{pd}}'d later.Microchip08 08:28, 7 May 2007 (EDT)

Hello again!

Yep, there is a time difference (I'm BST)...

I've made these block templates, that I thought might be good for sysops, but I haven't got Sam Odio's approval on these. Also, I've set it up so that you can type {{done}} and it comes up with Crystal Clear action apply.png Done!.

Unsigned Comment from Microchip08 --KaiAdin 15:54, 8 May 2007 (EDT)

BTW, I've created the template {{unsigned|username}} so you can have a nice little <Sam Odio (talkcontribs) .</small> or maybe <microchip08 (talkcontribs) .</small>, or even <hairy dude (talkcontribs) .</small>! Microchip08 12:10, 9 May 2007 (EDT)


Haven't said anything for a while, so "Hi!". Microchip08 13:15, 13 May 2007 (EDT).


BTW (again), I've added {{block}} to your most recent blocks. If you don't want them, feel free to revert them (you can find the link by clicking on Special Pages (if you are using MonoBook Wikipedia Skin) and selecting blocked IPs.). Yours, Microchip08 14:05, 14 May 2007 (EDT)

LOOOOVER

This previously deleted spam page has been re-created. You might want to delete it again and ban the IP Address.--Metropolisforever 12:39, 8 May 2007 (EDT)

Template:USERNAME

Why is this template not working? :(--Metropolisforever 09:44, 16 May 2007 (EDT)

I think it's to do with the template being there (Wikipedia doesn't have a template for it, so it's probably a Magic Word (see metawiki) - I'll try blanking the page, but it might need deleting. Trying now. Microchip08 07:54, 17 May 2007 (EDT).
Nope, Crystal Clear action button cancel.png Not done!. Doesn't work on Wikipedia, either.
It works on Uncyclopedia.--Metropolisforever 09:32, 17 May 2007 (EDT)

Hello, again

Sorry I've not been around, but thought I'd lie low - friends at school found that I was editing a website that had Shock Sites. Not a nice experience, with them threatening to go to the Head! Microchip08 14:18, 2 July 2007 (EDT).

Please Protect my User Page

Please protect my user page.

There is a certain user, who keeps harassing me, under multiple IP Addresses, and he even created his own account, to attack me on the Shock Sites page!!!!!!

In fact, he has TWO accounts, and SEVERAL IP Addresses.

Seriously... he WILL NOT stop harassing me.

Again, please protect my user page.

Also, here is a list of pages to protect:

User:Metropolisforever

User talk:Metropolisforever

Talk:Shock Sites

Thank you very much!!!!!! ^_^--Metropolisforever 14:25, 17 August 2007 (EDT)

He just created ANOTHER account!!!!!! >_< Please take a look at the Shock Sites history...--Metropolisforever 12:28, 19 August 2007 (EDT)

His Other Accounts

Special:Contributions/Nf1060 - His new account.

Special:Contributions/Schwollenpeker - Another account.

"Feeding the Trolls"

That was Shocker's idea...--Metropolisforever 08:06, 20 August 2007 (EDT)

My mistake then, ill be talkign to him --KaiAdin 09:03, 20 August 2007 (EDT)

Spam

I've updated the BluWiki:Link Spam page. You can now add keywords there that I'll blacklist them. --Sam Odio 14:39, 17 August 2007 (EDT)

R.I.P. Shock Sites

I hate the evil spam filter!!!!!!... :'-(

Just something silly

One of your recent block reasons "Make 1 Year" reminded me of Seinfeld ("No soup for you. Come back 1 year").

:)Nathan (talk) 22:15, 29 August 2007 (EDT)

Heh, loved that episode... yea, though it wasn't repeat spam, that amount of pages spam seemed to warrant a longer block. --KaiAdin 06:03, 30 August 2007 (EDT)

Some thoughts?

How do you feel about this user? I need a second opinion, please.

Does it just look like a kid who doesn't know all the rules (looks like it to me, so I've tried to explain on the talk page) or someone who's making 8 billion silly pages?

EDIT: IP is a school as I thought.

By the way, if you'd like, I can make an image of your e-mail address for your userpage so you can link to that.  Nathan (talk) 11:39, 11 September 2007 (EDT)

Heh, answered before I could even look at it, how do the lookup anyway? (some IP address database?, by pinging it?). Yes that would be nice, of course only if you have the time though. --KaiAdin 15:28, 11 September 2007 (EDT)

Nathan (talk) 15:31, 11 September 2007 (EDT)

Image is there. You can make it clickable like this http://bluwiki.com/images/6/6f/KaiAdin-email.png if you wish (or link it to Special:Emailuser/KaiAdinNathan (talk) 15:38, 11 September 2007 (EDT)

Thats got to be one of the longest abbreviations I've ever seen --KaiAdin 06:47, 14 September 2007 (EDT)

Spelling difference

I am totally aware of this and thanks for pointing that out. But I decided to move to wetpaint because of the constant acts of vandalism and page hijacking which I have little to no control over.

VelaAdministrator 19:46, 20 September 2007 (EDT) Nathan (talk) 22:24, 20 September 2007 (EDT)

Pages about people

I suggest that these are all sockpuppets. It's getting insane, the number of users doing this. I vote now for delete all the pages.

I don't know if you've noticed the Recent Changes just now, but there seems to be oodles of pages about people just created (by the listed above) complete with personal contact information. This might be perfectly innocent but it sets a bad precedent in that anyone can view this info (and use it, not necessarily for good).

I would go so far as to discourage this kind of thing on a public wiki, and have left messages on these users' talk pages, pointing out that it's a really bad idea. I was thinking of asking them to remove addresses/phone numbers/IM contact info but I wanted at least one more admin to agree with me before I went that far.

Perhaps we should have a guideline against posting personal information and perhaps that's something that we should approach Sam about.

Nathan (talk) 00:24, 23 September 2007 (EDT)

Hmm, Yes I agree. It could be though one person setting up accounts for other users, to encourage them to use it rather then giving the excuse "eh I'm too lazy to make an account". Im not so against putting personal Info in the net, but here we don't have appropriate privacy controls available to users to prevent unwanted access.But yea, why not make a Bluwiki name space on guidelines to internet privacy/Personal information. --KaiAdin 04:36, 23 September 2007 (EDT)
Oh, in the end, it is not a good precedent to set, I wonder how many of these people know their personal info is being placed here. On one hand us deleting the info ourselves may be unwanted interference from the sysops. In the end, I say I would encourage each person to sate their willingness to participate in such a listing but making their own account and placing their own information. It is their personal info and if they know the risks its their decision, but if someone else placed the information without knowledge and thus consent, I believe it is alright to revert the change.--KaiAdin 04:42, 23 September 2007 (EDT)
Whats an appropriate category for guidelines? Inside Category:Help? I guess --KaiAdin 04:45, 23 September 2007 (EDT)

We just figured that no one would even be able to find the wiki page except
us since we dont have it linked anywhere and the only way to get there is go
to it directly.  We aren't planning on sharing the link with anyone but
those of us who are on the page.

My reply

Ah, OK but the flaw in that is Google regularly goes through Bluwiki.com so eventually your information will end up searchable,
especially with the DOB name and Address, any old con could just take all those and maybe clear out your account, or get huge Loans, please
reconsider if this information really needs to be placed on a public wiki, any one just randomly passing through may use this information 
for fraudulent purposes.

Thanks

Oh, I didn't read all the changes that have transpired since this morning, good to see that some solution has been found --KaiAdin 03:38, 24 September 2007 (EDT)

Apparently it changed from Sam's Biography to a stuff on Pompeii (in Italian of course), but I suppose he just wanted to copy the nav box Sam has or something like that, anyway you reverted it so theres no harm done. --KaiAdin 18:50, 12 October 2007 (EDT)

RE:Font colour

Making what almost white? To me, the font looks black and the box looks sort of... grayish. --68

Well, it looks kinda black to me. What? --68

Head's up.

We seem to have a persistent vandal on the loose, a particularly irritating one at that. See User_talk:Atomicthumbs for the details. I've had to lock down CraiginatorNathan (talk) 21:57, 27 October 2007 (EDT)

Re: protection of page

I guess it would deter many possible contributors. I know I wouldn't contribute to an article on a wiki, if I required an account, and I had no account. -- Eldmannen 15:42, 2 November 2007 (EDT)

Is it just my imagination but did a few IPs edit this pageNathan (talk) 16:46, 13 November 2007 (EST)

I do... Interesting, same with another 'guestbook/go/' page as well. I suppose its the remains of the database crash months ago. Oh and also as you may have seen on Sam's talk page the move log is also corrupted. --KaiAdin 17:44, 13 November 2007 (EST)

Microchip08

Microchip08 has asked for all of his content to be deleted. However, I have some reservations about deleting his templates, as they're very useful & could benefit the wiki.

I asked him if it was OK to keep them and merge them somewhere. (Under GFDL, I can do this anyway but I think it's just polite to ask first)

Nathan (talk) 10:53, 7 January 2008 (EST)

They're fine to keep. Microchip08 11:32, 7 January 2008 (EST)
