PRODEdit

Hi and thanks for your recent nominations for deletion of some pages that appear to deserve it. I wanted to be sure you were aware of the Proposed Deletion (aka PROD) process - a couple of the pages you nominated appear to be ripe for this process, which is faster and less formal than VFD. In general, if a page seems to obviously be a candidate to be deleted (e.g., it has no quotes, or the subject is not notable, etc.), this is a better first step. If the PROD notice is removed and someone contests it, but the problem remains, then the second step could be VFD. The specifics can be found here: Wikiquote:Proposed deletion. Thanks. ~ UDScott (talk) 17:01, 31 May 2022 (UTC)

Hi UDScott, I was aware of it but wasn't fully sure either way. I will use PROD in future if I find there are no quotes at all on the page. Cheers, Rubbish computer (Talk: Contribs) 17:02, 31 May 2022 (UTC)

Admin accountability pollEdit

Why are spamming "Ping me or visit my Talk Page?" – Ilovemydoodle (talk / e-mail) 21:24, 5 June 2022 (UTC)

Hi Ilovemydoodle, I thought we were supposed to vote on it. Rubbish computer Ping me or leave a message on my talk page 21:30, 5 June 2022 (UTC)
Yes, but you didn't vote, you just left that message. – Ilovemydoodle (talk / e-mail) 21:31, 5 June 2022 (UTC)

Hi it's supposed to be I support everywhere I signed, sorry if it wasn't clear. Rubbish computer Ping me or leave a message on my talk page 21:32, 5 June 2022 (UTC)

Pinging Ilovemydoodle. Rubbish computer Ping me or leave a message on my talk page 21:34, 5 June 2022 (UTC)
Oh, I think you should make it more, clear I didn't realize it was your signature. – Ilovemydoodle (talk / e-mail) 21:36, 5 June 2022 (UTC)
I think it's a useful signature for new users but I could have written "support" on each one and signed instead. Glad to have clarified things, @Ilovemydoodle:

SignatureEdit

Your signature is confusing. – Ilovemydoodle (talk / e-mail) 23:05, 5 June 2022 (UTC)

Hi Ilovemydoodle, I have to agree to disagree on that. Rubbish computer Ping me or leave a message on my talk page 23:25, 5 June 2022 (UTC)
Could you a dash to your signature to make it more clear? – Ilovemydoodle (talk / e-mail) 23:26, 5 June 2022 (UTC)

Hi Ilovemydoodle, I can do yes. Rubbish computer Ping me or leave a message on my talk page 23:28, 5 June 2022 (UTC)

Done? – Ilovemydoodle (talk / e-mail) 23:29, 5 June 2022 (UTC)
Hi Ilovemydoodle, put brackets as I felt that makes it less confusing. Rubbish computer (Ping me or leave a message on my talk page) 23:30, 5 June 2022 (UTC)
Good. – Ilovemydoodle (talk / e-mail) 23:30, 5 June 2022 (UTC)

Template:Formatting

Ilovemydoodle, it wasn't me who created that page with inconsistent formatting. Rubbish computer (Ping me or leave a message on my talk page) 19:48, 20 June 2022 (UTC)
No you removed a space for no reason Nevermind, my mistake. – Ilovemydoodle (Not WMF, Not a sockpuppet of Antandrus, Not a paid editor of Shueisha) (talk / e-mail) 19:51, 20 June 2022 (UTC)

Help neededEdit

Could you please contact El C on Wikipedia? For more information please see this. – Ilovemydoodle (Not WMF, Not a sockpuppet of Antandrus, Not a paid editor of Shueisha) (talk / e-mail) 19:53, 20 June 2022 (UTC)

Hi Ilovemydoodle, I can't do this as blocked users shouldn't edit by proxy, sorry. Hopefully your IP range gets unblocked at some point. Rubbish computer (Ping me or leave a message on my talk page) 20:08, 20 June 2022 (UTC)
I don’t want to edit by proxy, I want you to make your own independent choice of what to say. – Ilovemydoodle (Not WMF, Not a sockpuppet of Antandrus, Not a paid editor of Shueisha) (talk / e-mail) 20:10, 20 June 2022 (UTC)
Hi Ilovemydoodle, it is editing by proxy to have someone make an edit on your behalf. I would wait to see if you can appeal the block. Rubbish computer (Ping me or leave a message on my talk page) 20:17, 20 June 2022 (UTC)
How would you recommend I go about doing that? – Ilovemydoodle (Not WMF, Not a sockpuppet of Antandrus, Not a paid editor of Shueisha) (talk / e-mail) 20:18, 20 June 2022 (UTC)
Hi Ilovemydoodle, that I'm not sure of, sorry. It looked like you were talking to an admin about it on Commons: is that true? Rubbish computer (Ping me or leave a message on my talk page) 20:21, 20 June 2022 (UTC)
Yes. The original blocking admin was El C, who blocked me for one week, then later Daniel Case (the admin I was talking to on the commons) blocked me for five years (-tp -ac anononly). – Ilovemydoodle (Not WMF, Not a sockpuppet of Antandrus, Not a paid editor of Shueisha) (talk / e-mail) 20:25, 20 June 2022 (UTC)
Ok, let me know how it goes, Ilovemydoodle. Rubbish computer (Ping me or leave a message on my talk page) 20:34, 20 June 2022 (UTC)
For reference, here is my list of edits on en.wp. – Ilovemydoodle (Not WMF, Not a sockpuppet of Antandrus, Not a paid editor of Shueisha) (talk / e-mail) 20:36, 20 June 2022 (UTC)

Good news!Edit

My attack page on ED is gone! Now it has been replaced by this. – Ilovemydoodle (Not WMF, Not a sockpuppet of Antandrus, Not a paid editor of Shueisha) (talk / e-mail) 20:43, 20 June 2022 (UTC)

That's good to know, Ilovemydoodle. Rubbish computer (Ping me or leave a message on my talk page) 22:42, 20 June 2022 (UTC)
Unfortunately, it's back
Edit: Gone again

Hi Ilovemydoodle, I think it's down for maintenance currently. I would just not give them any attention. Rubbish computer (Ping me or leave a message on my talk page) 08:35, 21 June 2022 (UTC)

Testing HelpEdit

Could you please help with testing? I need you to add me to this Template, then create a subpage of your user page, then include the previously mentioned Template within the page (without subst). – Ilovemydoodle (Not a sockpuppet of Antandrus) (talk / e-mail) 08:42, 21 June 2022 (UTC)

Hi Ilovemydoodle, do you want me to hide your name, like the other names in the template, or keep it showing? Cheers, Rubbish computer (Ping me or leave a message on my talk page) 09:12, 21 June 2022 (UTC)
Put it the same place as the other (I'll remove it after testing). – Ilovemydoodle (Not a sockpuppet of Antandrus) (talk / e-mail) 09:21, 21 June 2022 (UTC)
It worked!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! – Ilovemydoodle (Not a sockpuppet of Antandrus) (talk / e-mail) 09:35, 21 June 2022 (UTC)

DiscussionEdit

Could you comment here? – Ilovemydoodle (Not a sockpuppet) (talk / e-mail) 19:29, 17 July 2022 (UTC)

A belated hiEdit

You and I had a brief discussion of women categories recently so I was thinking of you when I checked for updates on Wikiquote:Administrators'_noticeboard#Why_was_this_category_discussion_page_deleted?. I don't normally check a UP before I post a message on their UT, but you are different because

I wasn't sure how best to find you but since my first impression of you was that of a straightforward person I started typing in the search box User:Rubbish, and to my delight I got an autocomplete and instantly clicked on your User-page (UP). I have not quite yet figured out when autocomplete helps and when it does not. I hope I am making sense?

Back to your UP I see that you have been here much longer than me, that you belong to the demographic-group most abundant on wmf-wikis unlike me, and that you started out as recent change patroller. I already knew that you are interested in wq:Categories.

Anyway, I guess I do not need to welcome you to wikiquote :) and sorry about my garbled message, Ottawahitech (talk) 16:04, 9 November 2022 (UTC)

Hi Ottawahitech, sorry I must have missed this. Which demographic do you mean? My username has changed also, I decided to use my real name. Alextejthompson (Ping me or leave a message on my talk page) 17:10, 16 January 2023 (UTC)
HI Alextejthompson,
I apologize. I got pinged to this page a while ago, but was busy elsewhere and forgot. I have to read what I wrote here a couple of months ago, it is TLDR, again my apologies, I have a memory the size of a flee, and my patience sometimes is even smaller. Ottawahitech (talk) 16:07, 24 January 2023 (UTC)

Hi Ottawahitech, no worries. Alextejthompson (Ping me or leave a message on my talk page) 17:37, 24 January 2023 (UTC)

I believe you have shown interest in or edited some Elvis Presley related pages. You may be interested in the discussion at Wikiquote:Votes for deletion/Elvis Presley quote forks, and may even wish to participate or add comment(s). Thankyou -- User:Djm-leighpark(a)talk 08:05, 16 January 2023 (UTC)
