Sarcasm as a hate crimeEdit

Wikipedia's political nature seems immune to wider online zeitgeist "scare-em-ups" ... but your use of the word sarcasm in your user page may draw the wrong kind of attention? Probably non though. Sarcasm in the 'wiki word watch' list, seems to only draw up a certain style vs vibe effect & non outright "hate speech" ... yet. Text mdnp (talk) 21:07, 11 November 2021 (UTC)

Right on dude. Dronebogus (talk) 07:56, 12 November 2021 (UTC)

Edit warringEdit

When this block expires (in one hour), please take a breath and stop the edit warring that is not helpful to anyone. Please work to resolve your differences in a civil manner. Thanks. ~ UDScott (talk) 15:23, 4 March 2022 (UTC)

I do hope you realize the ban was largely pointless as clearly the only thing me and the other user are going to be “resolving” is how much we still disagree with each other. Dronebogus (talk) 16:28, 4 March 2022 (UTC)

Your ping probably did not workEdit

Hi Dronebogus,

Just to let you know: The ping you inserted at AN probably did not send a notification to the intended recipient. Pinging another user through the notifications system is done by linking their user page when editing any talk page, and successfully signing your post, in the same saved edit. A notification cannot be added and sent after the msg has already been signed and posted. I hope I am making sense? Cheers, Ottawahitech (talk) 16:52, 5 March 2022 (UTC)

Are the wiki-sisters (I mean enwp and all other wmf-wikis) missing an opportunity to expand readership and recruit new editors? All I have seen for the last couple of weeks on TV are women marching to protest the decision of the supreme court to rollback Roe v wade (only leaked so far). But the Wikimedia movement is doing zilch - no mention of the protests on any main pages that I have seen so far. Is the place really run by white young men as has been claimed by many?
Curious about your opinion. Cheers Ottawahitech (talk) 16:16, 16 May 2022 (UTC)
I don’t really know what you mean. We can’t take sides on the abortion debate, that’s blatantly partisan. Dronebogus (talk) 18:21, 16 May 2022 (UTC)
I did not mean take sides. What I meant is there seems to be little coverage of the protests that are obviously very important to half the human population of the United States and outside. Ottawahitech (talk) 21:20, 16 May 2022 (UTC)
Hm, I’d recommend taking that to In The News on enwiki Dronebogus (talk) 21:21, 16 May 2022 (UTC)
I looked it up a few days ago on enwp (where I can still read, but not actively participate), and I believe a suggestion to post it ITN was shot down? In any event, since we are here at WQ shouldn't we do something about it here: we don't even have a page on the protests (and enwiki did not either at least yesterday). Ottawahitech (talk) 21:32, 16 May 2022 (UTC)
Then w:wp:DOIT Dronebogus (talk) 21:38, 16 May 2022 (UTC)
I'll take it to the roe talk page. Do you mind if I insert a link to this thread? Ottawahitech (talk) 21:40, 16 May 2022 (UTC)
I don’t mind at all. Dronebogus (talk) 21:40, 16 May 2022 (UTC)

Despicable Me (film)Edit

Now it appears that you are just being combative. I tried to apply some common sense to this page and settle on a compromise somewhere in the middle of the two positions (between you and DawgDeputy). Please do not revert the changes again. If you do, I will block you for disruptive behavior. If you disagree with any part of the changes made, bring them to the discussion page - I repeat, do not just revert them. I am not on either side in this dispute, but if you continue to behave as you have, I have no choice but to assume you are unwilling to compromise. ~ UDScott (talk) 17:45, 7 March 2022 (UTC)

Surgery in fictionEdit

Hello, I was wondering if I would be interested in a category that could be added to the page for The Human Centipede: I try and stay away from niche subjects for categories ever since my ban form Wikipedia, but given the obvious application to the page in question I felt it an appropriate issue to raise to you. I was thinking surgery in fiction or the more specific surgery in film/surgery in television, however I don't believe Wikipedia has such categories, which is why I thought it might be a bit of a contentious addition on Wikiquote. In most works of fiction a character undergoing surgery may have little to do with the overall story and is simply trivia, however for others, such as this film and several other works of body horror, it is essential to the plot. CensoredScribe (talk) 23:07, 6 May 2022 (UTC)

Sure, but just surgery in fiction, and maybe change to “medical-related fiction” since that’s more general, and ONLY for works specifically about medical work. Dronebogus (talk) 02:17, 7 May 2022 (UTC)

Fake talkEdit

Maybe you could use User talk:Dronеbogus instead? – Ilovemydoodle (Not WMF, Not a sockpuppet of Antandrus, Not a paid editor of Shueisha) (talk / e-mail) 20:56, 12 June 2022 (UTC)

How did you do that? Dronebogus (talk) 20:57, 12 June 2022 (UTC)
Special w:Unicode character that looks like an "e" but is technically a different character. – Ilovemydoodle (Not WMF, Not a sockpuppet of Antandrus, Not a paid editor of Shueisha) (talk / e-mail) 20:58, 12 June 2022 (UTC)
That’s cool but the fake talk incident was kind of a one-off, I’ve never needed it since Dronebogus (talk) 20:59, 12 June 2022 (UTC)
Could you add it anyway just-in-case? – Ilovemydoodle (Not WMF, Not a sockpuppet of Antandrus, Not a paid editor of Shueisha) (talk / e-mail) 21:00, 12 June 2022 (UTC)
That requires a second account which I don’t want. Dronebogus (talk) 21:01, 12 June 2022 (UTC)
You don’t need a second account, you can create a user page for a user that doesn't exist. – Ilovemydoodle (Not WMF, Not a sockpuppet of Antandrus, Not a paid editor of Shueisha) (talk / e-mail) 21:02, 12 June 2022 (UTC)

User talk:DronеbogusEdit

I see you created the page, but doesn't the message tip off that it's fake? – Ilovemydoodle (Not WMF, Not a sockpuppet of Antandrus, Not a paid editor of Shueisha) (talk / e-mail) 21:07, 12 June 2022 (UTC)

The Lta is pretty fricking stupid Dronebogus (talk) 21:08, 12 June 2022 (UTC)
I deleted the page because the user doesn't exist. I'd recommend creating another account if you would like that user page --Ferien (talk) 21:14, 12 June 2022 (UTC)
@Ferien: Also, could you please go through Candidates for speedy deletion. it has a large backlog. – Ilovemydoodle (Not WMF, Not a sockpuppet of Antandrus, Not a paid editor of Shueisha) (talk / e-mail) 21:22, 12 June 2022 (UTC)

June 2022Edit

  Please remember to keep consistent formatting and spacing, forgetting, as you did on Wikiquote:Wiki-sisters, leads to other editors having to do more work. Here's an example on how to format (or, for further reading read Manual of style):

This is Incorrect

       * Text 1
       **Text 2
===Section 1 ===

==== Subsection 1====
Text 3
==== Subsection 2====  : *Text 4 Text 5  :'''Text 6'

This is Correct

       * Text 1
       ** Text 2
=== Section 1 ===
==== Subsection 1 ====
Text 3
==== Subsection 2 ====
 :* Text 4 Text 5  : '''Text 6'''
If you want to automatically fix formatting, try the following Regular Expressions:
  • "^([\*:#;]+)([^\*:#; \n])" to "$1 $2"
  • " ?=(=+)(\n)\n?([^\n])" to " =$1$2$2$3"
  • "([^\n])\n?(\n)=(=+) ?" to "$1$2$2=$3 "
  • "…" to "..." (These are two different Unicode characters, so copy and paste them instead of typing the same thing)
  • "<(BR|Br|br|bR) */?>" to "<br>"
  • " \[([^\['][^\]]*)\] " to " ''[$1]'' "

Could do a quick little test for me? It would help me a lot. – Ilovemydoodle (Not a sockpuppet of Antandrus) (talk / e-mail) 04:53, 21 June 2022 (UTC)

What is it? Dronebogus (talk) 04:54, 21 June 2022 (UTC)
Just add this to any page you want to test with: {{PingTest/Ilovemydoodle}}Ilovemydoodle (Not a sockpuppet of Antandrus) (talk / e-mail) 04:54, 21 June 2022 (UTC)
Can you try again adding subst:? – Ilovemydoodle (Not a sockpuppet of Antandrus) (talk / e-mail) 04:57, 21 June 2022 (UTC)
Where do I add it? Dronebogus (talk) 04:58, 21 June 2022 (UTC)
Anywhere you want. Maybe create a subpage? – Ilovemydoodle (Not a sockpuppet of Antandrus) (talk / e-mail) 05:02, 21 June 2022 (UTC)
No, I mean {{subst: PingTest/Ilovemydoodle}}Ilovemydoodle (Not a sockpuppet of Antandrus) (talk / e-mail) 05:07, 21 June 2022 (UTC)
Well, the first one didn't work (the one without subst, which was expected) but the regular one also didn't work, which means that pinging isn't working. – Ilovemydoodle (Not a sockpuppet of Antandrus) (talk / e-mail) 05:15, 21 June 2022 (UTC)
