Welcome and Thanks[edit]

I would like to welcome you to wikiquote and thank you personally for rating some of my suggestions for quote of the day so highly, especially some that I consider to be very well formulated quotations. Thanks again. Zarbon 06:22, 6 November 2008 (UTC)Reply

Thanks for the welcome. I am interested in the quote of day selections myself. I like many of your suggestions, along with some made by others as well. Fossil 16:05, 7 November 2008 (UTC)Reply


While you have been adding a lot of votes related to the selection of the Quote of the Day, you should read the following: Wikiquote:Village_pump#QOTD_selection_process. Since you do not have a long enough history of editing on WQ, your votes will not be counted - just didn't want you to waste your time. ~ UDScott 17:49, 7 November 2008 (UTC)Reply

I'm sorry. I didn't know that I had to have an extensive history on wikiquote in order for my votes to be counted. I see there were various other members with close to no history as well...such as "Lyle"..."Denji"..."Waheedone", etc but they have a tendency of voting as well. I have interest in the quote of the day, I find it fun really. Be aware that I will be adding to wikiquote also, so that my votes will eventually be taken into account.

Hello, Fossil. Please be aware...your votes will most likely not be taken into account for some time because new users to wikiquote aren't allowed to cast votes for qotd, apparently as a counter-measure of sorts. I'm still glad that you like my suggestions, but the fact that you mimic my actual votes very strongly creates suspicion. It's not your fault...I guess...since you seem to like many of my initial suggestions. Just be patient and I'm sure that after spending more time on wikiquote, you can cast votes furthermore.

After reading all the things posted in the link that UDScott has posted, I have decided to no longer participate in the daily quote selections. I have also decided to no longer participate in this project as a whole because I do not take well to wrongful suspicion and accusation. Let this be my short farewell.

I have proceeded to remove all my votes in order to save others from the trouble. Fossil 00:50, 22 November 2008 (UTC)Reply
