Do you think you could incorporate this into my signature, so that every time the four tildes (~~~~) were typed out, I would get a different coloured signature? --Gwib -(talk)- 13:21, 13 July 2008 (UTC)

...should do it. Microchip 13:25, Sunday, July 13 2008 Utc

That's the thing. I tried that but a message saying "Invalid raw signature; check HTML tags." came up. --Gwib -(talk)- 13:40, 13 July 2008 (UTC)
Try dumping the thing into a page and include the page in the raw signature. Chenzw  Talk  13:43, 13 July 2008 (UTC)
  1. Click here then click Submit
  2. Click here and type {{subst:User:Gwib/Sig}}
  3. Test it!

Thanks! It should work. --Gwib -(talk)- 13:52, 13 July 2008 (UTC)

Aargh! That's no use... erm. Microchip 13:53, Sunday, July 13 2008 Utc

  • fiddles* Microchip 13:54, Sunday, July 13 2008 Utc
No no, it works, but leaves about 5kb of coding behind. I'll just scrap the whole idea. --Gwib -(talk)- 13:55, 13 July 2008 (UTC)
OMG! You are giving the server a lot of work to do. Please fix it. Chenzw  Talk  13:57, 13 July 2008 (UTC)
Done, it's a fixed colour now. Ah well. --Gwib -(talk)- 14:01, 13 July 2008 (UTC)
No, every time you sign, the colour will change, like mine. Chenzw  Talk  14:02, 13 July 2008 (UTC)

I feel quite stupid now. There was me thinking you changed your signature colour daily... seriously, I did! Microchip 14:07, Sunday, July 13 2008 Utc

Don't worry, Ryan thinks so too! I thought that as well in the past about Lights' signature. Chenzw  Talk  14:12, 13 July 2008 (UTC)
Does it work properly now? Or do I leave behind a trail of script. --Gwib -(talk)- 15:03, 13 July 2008 (UTC)
It leaves a trail of code, but I've fixed it (I think...) - tholly --Turnip-- 15:46, 13 July 2008 (UTC)
Of course, I've fixed it so that it is the same colour on both links, just say if you want that changed. - tholly --Turnip-- 15:48, 13 July 2008 (UTC)
No no, that's good thanks! I like my new sig, and it all because of you, Chenz and MC. --Gwib -(talk)- 15:50, 13 July 2008 (UTC)
No trouble! - tholly --Turnip-- 17:52, 13 July 2008 (UTC)
Fixed per your talk page (and Chenzw's). - tholly --Turnip-- 18:59, 13 July 2008 (UTC)


I see it was you who made the about pages for articles on the Wikiproject Collaboration. Nice! I like it :) ← κεηηε∂γ (talk) (wikiproject collaboration) 08:37, 17 July 2008 (UTC)

 :-). Thanks... maybe you should propose this goes into Wikipedia namespace; as we have enough users! mC8 12:50, 17 July 2008 (UTC)
Sounds good, how do we propose that? Simple Talk? ← κεηηε∂γ (talk) (wikiproject collaboration) 09:55, 18 July 2008 (UTC)
I assume so. Microchip 15:53, 18 July 2008 (UTC)


Yeah, one problem I had closing a RfD was that the date started is not placed on the RfD, causing confusion for Admins/Razor if he does them/myself. --  Da Punk '95  talk  20:46, 17 July 2008 (UTC)

Right... I completely overlooked that. Off to fix. Microchip 15:53, 18 July 2008 (UTC)

Barnstar Congratulations: You have been given a Barnstar!

It is my great honour to give you, Microchip08, a Barnstar in recognition of all your Wikipedian Changes, yours or otherwise.

Your ob't servant. ← κεηηε∂γ (talk) (wikiproject collaboration) 16:51, 18 July 2008 (UTC)

You do deserve it! ← κεηηε∂γ (talk) (wikiproject collaboration) 16:51, 18 July 2008 (UTC)

Yay! My first one! /me feels special... Thank you so much!mc8
Hey! I gave you one! Mine don't count? *sob, sob as I walk away...* -- AmericanEagle (talk) 17:05, 18 July 2008 (UTC)
Well, what do you expect if it is invisible? Sorry; I honestly didn't realise... Microchip 17:08, 18 July 2008 (UTC)
Quite alright. I was kidding anyway. ;) Cheers -- American Eagle (talk) 18:06, 18 July 2008 (UTC)
I noticed you created "WT:MC8", were you trying to do "UT:MC8?" I replied on my talk page. Cheers -- American Eagle (talk) 20:57, 18 July 2008 (UTC)

Littlest Pet Shop

I undeleted the article; after User:Creol left me a message on my talk page. Please research more carefully next time; before marking something as non-notable. Thanks. --Eptalon (talk) 14:50, 19 July 2008 (UTC)


Thanks for the userpage edit. Microchip 18:28, 24 July 2008 (UTC)

No trouble, you noticed quickly! - tholly --Turnip-- 18:29, 24 July 2008 (UTC)
Heh, WP:RC. Microchip 18:30, 24 July 2008 (UTC)
I changed the link to Special:RecentChanges. I've changed your header again so that you don't have that spare code at the top of this page :) - tholly --Turnip-- 18:35, 24 July 2008 (UTC)
Nope, the link doesn't work — I've tried before. mC8 17:56, 25 July 2008 (UTC)

Re: Username

Sorry for my delayed reply. No place I got the name "Glacier Wolf." It was the only enwiki username that I could think of that was not already taken. :p LeiaY 17:40, 30 July 2008 (UTC)


I think you were the one who re-designed our RfD page. It's very well done, but there's one problem. In the categories which completed RfD fall into (Deleted and Kept)), every page is archived under W.

Is it possible to have them archived under the article name itself? --Gwib -(talk)- 21:45, 3 August 2008 (UTC)

Apologies for the (very) late reply; we went on holiday and I forgot to add the tag. No, I'm afraid I don't know... but I'm off to experiment now. Try asking someone like TRM who categorises pages frequently: he may have a better idea. Sorry. Microchip 14:05, 21 August 2008 (UTC)
Creol took care of it :). Hope you had a good time on holiday. --Gwib -(talk)- 14:06, 21 August 2008 (UTC)
I did. And I just got my results for my early entry GCSEs — A for Maths & B for 'Critical Thinking'... yay. Back to school in September, so will probably be editing again then in earnest. Did I miss anything important? mc8 14:08, 21 August 2008 (UTC)
Cassandra is an admin, American Eagle is an admin and Razorflame is going for his 9th RFA. His RfA is so incredibly controversial that it's attracted attention from the Wikimedia board over from ENWP and it's over 140,000 bytes long. (Gwib)
/me looks, reads, then gives up. Thanks for the update! mc8 14:13, 21 August 2008 (UTC)

Recent changes

Hopefully that worked correctly. "Hopefully" as I can't actually see it while logged in to know if it did. -- Creol(talk) 18:07, 22 August 2008 (UTC)

Yes it did; thankyou. mC8 10:04, 24 August 2008 (UTC)


Facebook cabal? Where? --Gwib -(talk)- 10:22, 24 August 2008 (UTC)

/me was joking... mC8 10:23, 24 August 2008 (UTC)
In fact.... should I create a secret page quest just for the sake of it? Stupid Wikipedia... I mean, it isn't meant to have articles, is it? Microchip 10:25, 24 August 2008 (UTC)

Oooh, that was harsh! - I must admit it looks quite good. I think I will leave it there for a couple of days :) Kennedy (talk) 13:31, 29 August 2008 (UTC)

It was really harsh, you're right. You can put a border around it by having [[Image:Flag of England.svg|200px|border]]. mc8 13:33, 29 August 2008 (UTC)
I have no idea how I done it, but look at this! I tried to vandalise you back, and got it wrong :P Kennedy (talk) 13:46, 29 August 2008 (UTC)
Heh. That's my fault. Anyways, isn't that Prime Contributer's page, not mine? mc8 13:49, 29 August 2008 (UTC)
Yes, I only noticed that after I done it. Thats how I got it wrong! I've fixed it now :) Kennedy (talk) 13:56, 29 August 2008 (UTC)
Thank you for the barnstar. :) - P.S. Don't worry, I took the joke in good humor :) Kennedy (talk) 14:04, 29 August 2008 (UTC)
Vandalised. mC8 14:06, 29 August 2008 (UTC)
I noticed :) - And I didn't know about ♥ either. Thanks for the tip! Kennedy (talk) 14:09, 29 August 2008 (UTC)
There's also ♣ and ♠... Microchip 14:11, 29 August 2008 (UTC)
PMSL - That one might confuse some people, and maybe tarnish my reputation, but I think I will again leave it for now :P Kennedy (talk) 14:44, 29 August 2008 (UTC)

Er, what?

I didn't create an article at all. (talk) 17:51, 29 August 2008 (UTC)

OK plus I had an account but I retired (talk) 18:45, 29 August 2008 (UTC)
because I am not trusted by the community. (talk) 01:12, 30 August 2008 (UTC)
no it's just I am not trusted as a user and being a IP is better. (talk) 14:40, 30 August 2008 (UTC)


Thanks for creating my userpage, I'd forgotten :) - thollyness --Talk-- 17:51, 29 August 2008 (UTC)



Indeed, I was right. Apparently, the template you're using accepts up to 2 parameters, and my agebox has more. Can you expand the template? --Gwib -(talk)- 09:10, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

Um... mC8 15:11, 30 August 2008 (UTC)


You have no e-mail :) Kennedy (talk) 08:39, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

Re: New Smiley!

You're just jealous! 20px I can't think of any more smilies, as I hardly use them, but I might start using the 20pxpx one! Kennedy (talk) 09:45, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

Ah hah! It's sunny just now 20pxpx - First time I have saw(/seen?) the sun in weeks! Kennedy (talk) 09:49, 2 September 2008 (UTC)
By the way, where in the UK are you from? You're not a Welshy are you boyo? Kennedy (talk) 09:56, 2 September 2008 (UTC)
The only place name I can see is the huge Scotland flag 20px and "I <3 Scotland!" Kennedy (talk) 10:04, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

No. It's on my userpage... mC8 10:07, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

No, I think i found it. Southampton? The huge big red letters gave it away tbh... 20pxpx Kennedy (talk) 13:38, 2 September 2008 (UTC)


Hi, I was wondering if you had any comments for my review? Kennedy (talk) 15:26, 3 September 2008 (UTC)

Re:Re:Closing RfDs (:P)

Well, this is rather confusing, :P Though, I still think administrators should close it, even if it was so obvious that it could have been QD'd. Anyway, could you review me? That's mainly what I came here to ask, but I just happen to saw that RfD. :) -- RyanCross (talk) 11:43, 7 September 2008 (UTC)
