User talk:Fetchcomms


I'm more active around the English Wikipedia, Wikimedia Commons, and English Wikinews.

Hello, Fetchcomms, and welcome to the Simple English Wikipedia!

You may want to begin by reading these pages :

For some ideas of pages to work on, read Wikipedia:Requested articles or the list of wanted pages.

You can change any pages you want! Any changes you make can be seen immediately. You can ask questions at Wikipedia:Simple talk. At the end of your messages on Talk pages, please sign your name by typing "~~~~" (four tildes)

Good luck and happy changing! Fetchcomms (talk) 17:47, 8 June 2010 (UTC)


I don't think it's useful to follow him around and look for edits to pick out that are "completely useless". In his first few hours here he's already contributed more content (of almost equivalent quality to what's already here) than in his entire several months on Wikipedia where he also had a multi-person mentor team. A few of his talkpage edits here are somewhat dumb, yes. But there is nothing basically wrong with a ratio of one new article created to every 20 or 30 talkpage edits. The level of disruption is really low to zero. Why not wait until regular editors here actually feel he is causing disruption? They have forewarning of the previous problems and are happy to give him the benefit of the doubt for the time being.

Or you could go compare the mainspace/talkspace/otherspace ratios of one of Wikipedia's most respected content creators, instead :)

Or at least, some of them are, lol. -Demiurge1000 (talk) 04:51, 25 November 2010 (UTC)
I know, I'm just hoping to get him on the right track now and forget about this later. I've, uh, already messed up before and led an annoying troll (Ian is not a troll) to Simple and badger people and continue his behavior. // fetchcomms ~ talk 04:56, 25 November 2010 (UTC)

Can anyone please teach me how to make a Simple WikiProject? I want to build Simple Wiki Project Warriors. Loudclaw (talk) 07:44, 25 November 2010 (UTC)

Follow the directions at Wikipedia:WikiProject. // fetchcomms ~ talk 17:22, 25 November 2010 (UTC)

I now wish to make this Wikipedia better than that jerk Big English Wikipedia. They BLOCKED my brother when he really did have good faith. INDEF! See my dumb en userpage. Put up a post on AN/I to tell them that erik.leif really IS my brother. I, in fact, got caught in an autoblock when erik edited and got himself blocked. Like a week ago. Loudclaw (talk) 05:47, 8 March 2011 (UTC)

That's not going to help. Instead of making aggressive, demanding posts on my talk page, perhaps you should engage in behavior that might actually prevent you from being blocked in the future? /fC 15:57, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
Alright. But I'm still staying on here to make it the best it can be. Even if it means having everyone oppose me, I'll still do my best. Loudclaw (talk) 19:31, 9 March 2011 (UTC)


Thank you for partaking in my RFA. As an added bonus, I'll include a random file from the commons: Best, Albacore (talk · changes) 01:50, 27 February 2011 (UTC)

Account renamed

(message from Highspeedrailguy's renamed account) The autoblock expires on en in 2 days, so I can connect SEPTActaMTA8235 to enwiki. PLEASE don't block it. It will only edit in userspace & user talk space–I'll create articles like Nikolayevsk Incident within userspace, and request moves. Also, I need to use the cite temps, and they have pretty much the same code on simple; so I will be using refTools on my en talk. Thanks. --SEPTActaMTA8235 (talk) 20:39, 5 April 2011 (UTC)

One, why on earth did you choose a confusing username, and two, please do not return to enwiki until the community approves it. This renaming smells like a way to get around your block, frankly, and that won't look good. I will block this account on en if you start editing without consensus there for an unblock, or approval of your suggested editing restrictions. If consensus has already been reached, please link me to the discussions. Thanks for coming forward and talking to me—communication is key. But you can't just run around in another clean start account so soon, especially without community consensus. /fC 21:54, 5 April 2011 (UTC)
Can I just edit on my own user talk on en so I can subst templates I need and use refTools to make references for here? (the two scripts I tried that are supposed to be copies of refTools don't work). Oh, yeah, you can block the account if it attaches to en–really, I can just use my user talk. --SEPTActaMTA8235 (talk) 22:40, 5 April 2011 (UTC)
I'm not at liberty to allow you to do that sort of thing without consensus. Please realize blocked means "do not edit", even on your talk page—unless you want those editing rights revoked, too. I think you'll need to continue your good work here and, if there are no issues here, request unblock at en in six months per the standard offer. You can use reftools without actually editing and you can work with templates here. /fC 22:45, 5 April 2011 (UTC)
Mmm, yes...I get it. But will someone update the articles on en when I request it? --SEPTActaMTA8235 (talk) 22:47, 5 April 2011 (UTC)
Depends if you find a nice enough user on simplewiki to do so. Or, you can wait—it won't kill you, astonishingly. /fC 23:13, 5 April 2011 (UTC)
