Pace down[edit]

Thank you for your creation of year placeholders ... I'm amazed your pace ... over 10 new pages in a minute. Recentchange is flooded. Are you running a bot? Either or not, please consider to make it slow. Request for Bot flag may also be your consideration. Thank you for your attention. --Aphaia 08:44, 18 May 2007 (UTC)

I am just doing manual edits. I began with 1976, and moved down through the centuries a while before I realized I didn't need to paste into the summary for the new pages. Then I hit on the technique of opening many tabs at once on my browser, and pasting in the placeholder template and saving. I figure its a job that should be finished quickly, to get it out of the way, and I'm willing to do so. If you want to give me a bot flag for a few hours, and it wouldn't interfere with my edit count that would be okay. ~ Gandalf 08:54, 18 May 2007 (UTC)
Since we don't give an account which cannot be distinguished from human edotor, "Gandalf" may not be granted by bot flag (I meant you may want to have another account). Also granting bot flag needs community approval. Your edits still are over 10 times per minute, and are thus flooding on RC. Please pace down, up to 6 in a minute or I'll blocked you from editing. --Aphaia 11:13, 18 May 2007 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Thank you for creating the pages J. R. R. Tolkien and The Lord of the Rings, way back in the day. Cheers! ~ DanielTom (talk) 10:20, 30 May 2013 (UTC)
