User Page RecommendationEdit

On your Wikipedia User Page it lists quote, I think it would be appropriate to add those here too. – Ilovemydoodle (Not WMF, Not a sockpuppet of Antandrus, Not a paid editor of Shueisha) (talk / e-mail) 16:10, 12 June 2022 (UTC)

That's a good idea, thanks. I'll probably use different ones though; I intended those to be about writing an encyclopedia, and this project is a bit different. The Marcus Aurelius applies everywhere, though, and I'm serious about what that wisest of all Roman Emperors said. Perspective is everything. As stressed-out as we can get in our little online lives, sometimes it's good to remember we're all but little bits of grit in the middle of the steppe. Oh wait, that was Samuel Beckett.

Also, about the sockpuppet thing I said earlier, here is what I was referring to. – Ilovemydoodle (Not WMF, Not a sockpuppet of Antandrus, Not a paid editor of Shueisha) (talk / e-mail) 19:34, 12 June 2022 (UTC)
Mario's right, but I'm breaking my own rule in even talking about it. Ljupco (GRP) made "Antandrus" as one of his earliest accounts on the current incarnation of their site. After it got banhammered, he started making more and more, mostly named after us, i.e. Wikimedia project people. It doesn't hurt us in any way. Looked at with appropriate perspective, it's just wryly amusing. See number 49 on my list; their behavior is a perfect example. I would encourage Ljupco to make more. It might even keep him from getting arrested again for real-life harassment. Antandrus (talk) 19:41, 12 June 2022 (UTC)
Well, I have an attack page there too. Also do you think you could explain this situation to Mario? – Ilovemydoodle (Not WMF, Not a sockpuppet of Antandrus, Not a paid editor of Shueisha) (talk / e-mail) 19:49, 12 June 2022 (UTC)
Have you ever tried to reason with a cockroach infestation?
They exist for the purpose of hurting people. The more you ask, the more likely you are to get a page in their mainspace. "Nice" and "good faith" are not things they do. You gotta let it go. Antandrus (talk) 21:40, 12 June 2022 (UTC)
Maybe you/me could ask on Wikiquote or Meta since you can’t attack someone here. – Ilovemydoodle (Not WMF, Not a sockpuppet of Antandrus, Not a paid editor of Shueisha) (talk / e-mail) 21:46, 12 June 2022 (UTC)

Typo on WikipediaEdit

This section on Wikipedia should say "Sometimes it is desirable to make a template behave differently when substituted rather than when transcluded," could you fix this? I am blocked on Wikipedia. – Ilovemydoodle (Not WMF, Not a sockpuppet of Antandrus, Not a paid editor of Shueisha) (talk / e-mail) 16:53, 12 June 2022 (UTC)

Hi Ilovemydoodle, I think either wording is grammatically ok. Rubbish computer (Ping me or leave a message on my talk page) 17:14, 12 June 2022 (UTC)
@Rubbish computer: Could you change it anyway, I think it's far more clear. – Ilovemydoodle (Not WMF, Not a sockpuppet of Antandrus, Not a paid editor of Shueisha) (talk / e-mail) 17:16, 12 June 2022 (UTC)
Hi Ilovemydoodle, sorry but I don't think that's a good idea. It could be argued by enwiki that you're participating in the community by proxy, which would make you less likely to be unblocked. It's also ok as it is. Thanks anyway, Rubbish computer (Ping me or leave a message on my talk page) 17:18, 12 June 2022 (UTC)
@Rubbish computer: Ok, I ran it through Grammarly and I appear to be correct. – Ilovemydoodle (Not WMF, Not a sockpuppet of Antandrus, Not a paid editor of Shueisha) (talk / e-mail) 17:30, 12 June 2022 (UTC)
Ilovemydoodle I would leave it. Rubbish computer (Ping me or leave a message on my talk page) 17:40, 12 June 2022 (UTC)
@Rubbish computer: Why? – Ilovemydoodle (Not WMF, Not a sockpuppet of Antandrus, Not a paid editor of Shueisha) (talk / e-mail) 17:41, 12 June 2022 (UTC)
Hi Ilovemydoodle, sorry I didn't see this sooner. It seems like an unnecessary edit, but more importantly I can't edit Wikipedia for you by proxy, and I may need to gain consensus to make such an edit. Rubbish computer (Ping me or leave a message on my talk page) 19:45, 12 June 2022 (UTC)
@Rubbish computer: Could you go ask? – Ilovemydoodle (Not WMF, Not a sockpuppet of Antandrus, Not a paid editor of Shueisha) (talk / e-mail) 19:47, 12 June 2022 (UTC)
Hi Ilovemydoodle, I don't think I should because of the reasons I already outlined. Sorry. Rubbish computer (Ping me or leave a message on my talk page) 19:48, 12 June 2022 (UTC)
@Rubbish computer: Also, I think I finally figured out why I was blocked, I originally made a few minor mistakes, but nothing really to get blocked for, but eventually I found a page called "Wikipedia:Village dump" (I don't remember how I found the page), the page was just a redirect to the Village Pump, but after checking the revision history, I noticed it used be a page that was actually used, I thought this was a cool idea, so I recreated it, but as it turns out this was commonly done by a group of vandals, the Admin must've thought I was one of them. – Ilovemydoodle (Not WMF, Not a sockpuppet of Antandrus, Not a paid editor of Shueisha) (talk / e-mail) 19:57, 12 June 2022 (UTC)

Good news and bad newsEdit
