Hi Congo. Welcome to English Wikiquote.

Enjoy! Cheers! BD2412 T 17:35, 4 March 2008 (UTC)

Inappropriate user name[edit]

You are currently claiming to be Bill Cosby, the actor who portrayed Cliff Huxtable on The Cosby Show. Based on your edits, which more resemble those of a young person wanting to use Wikiquote for social networking, this seems extremely unlikely. Our username policy forbids users from claiming to be famous people unless they can prove that they are these people.

If you are the famous actor and wish to confirm this, I ask that you send your evidence to me using the "E-mail this user" link in the left margin under "toolbox" on user page. If I do not receive compelling evidence within 48 hours, I will, in my best judgment, consider this an inappropriate username and block it from editing.

If you are not the famous actor, but were merely wanting to adopt an interesting username, please note that the we don't allow such impersonations, even if they were not meant to be harmful. You may request a username change at Wikiquote:Administrators' noticeboard, or directly from any of the Wikiquote bureaucrats listed at Wikiquote:Administrators#List of bureaucrats. I would also be happy to answer any questions you may have. ~ Jeff Q (talk) 20:56, 4 March 2008 (UTC)

That's fine, but you're still claiming to be Bill Cosby on your user page ("You probably know me best as Cliff Huxtable from The Cosby Show"). ~ Jeff Q (talk) 23:27, 4 March 2008 (UTC)
Scratch that. I see that Kalki removed the claim. But please avoid making such claims in the future. Users have quite a bit of freedom with their user pages, but some things, like impersonating well-known living people, are unacceptable. See Wikiquote:User page for more information on what you can and what you shouldn't do with user pages. ~ Jeff Q (talk) 23:34, 4 March 2008 (UTC)

Alright, but we didn't start the fire. It was always burning since the world's been turning. --Congo 04:04, 5 March 2008 (UTC)

Au contraire, Billy. You did light it, but we try to fight it. ~ Jeff Q (talk) 04:08, 5 March 2008 (UTC)
