This is an archive of past discussions on my user talk page for 2020.

Top heading changes[edit]

For several years I had let a few notes initially intended as temporary ones stand at the head of my talk page, and that heading eventually read:

BUSY—BUSY—BUSY & BUSIER, AM I…[edit]

I have MUCH to do in coming days and nights — and I do NOT expect to have much time to spend here for at least another month, and perhaps several beyond that. On most days I do expect to be able to spare perhaps an hour or so here on QOTD activities — but it is not likely I will be able to very often spend much more than that for at least a month. ~ ♌︎Kalki·⚓︎ 18:23, 10 April 2016 (UTC) + substantial revision — MANY things are keeping me increasingly busy — and many unanticipated problems demand attention within the next month. ♌︎Kalki·⚓︎ 19:14, 16 April 2016 (UTC)

I have only VERY briefly checked in today to update the QOTD — and must be leaving again soon. I do not expect to have the time to engage in many discussions for at least the next few days, as I have many matters to attend to locally, and am not likely to spend even as much time on the internet as I recently have, which is far less than normal. I will probably attend to a few matters to the extent I can, in what brief periods I might find some free time to check in here, within the next week, but do not expect to have much more than a few minutes at a time to spend here on most days, though I might be able to spend perhaps an hour or so within the next day or so. So it goes Blessings. ~ ♌︎Kalki·⚓︎ 23:32, 20 May 2016 (UTC)

I had meant to do significant work here yesterday, but unexpectedly ended up traveling about more in my local region of New England than I had initially intended, doing only a last minute iPhone edit on a QOTD while still on the road, and finally did a full layout for this just a few minutes ago, from home — but now I must be leaving again, for at least a few hours. I don’t have time to examine much more at this time, will be leaving in a few minutes. ~ ♌︎Kalki·⚓︎ 13:06, 24 January 2017 (UTC)

I was finishing up what I was thinking would be my last tasks of the day before heading home, and got a call, and will now be busy at least a few more hours. Managed to make it home in time to post QOTD, but am expecting someone to be picking me up within a few minutes. So it goes Blessings. ~ ♌︎Kalki·⚓︎ 22:43, 24 January 2017 (UTC)

I might do some final commenting and archiving of material on this page soon, within the next few days, but don’t have much time to attend to it right now. ~ ♌︎Kalki·⚓︎ 13:35, 4 February 2017 (UTC)

I finally altered that heading on 2020·02·24 to what might serve as the top-most message on the page for quite some time to come:

I usually have only a sporadic presence here on most days[edit]

Though I once regularly spent many hours of most days at least monitoring this site, I now quite often spend less than an hour a day doing so, at various random periods within most days. There may be a few periods this year where I will have the opportunity for extensive activities here for days at a time, but I am not actually counting on that occurring very often. I shall continue to usually check in at least daily, but Time shall reveal what opportunities times can provide. So it goes Blessings. ~ ♌︎Kalki·⚓︎ 22:33, 24 February 2020 (UTC)

ALL abides always and all abide ALWAYS amidst ALL.

Please range block[edit]

The turkish IP LTA has returned, please block this range and yank talk page access. Praxidicae (talk) 15:26, 14 January 2020 (UTC)

We've got a hypocritical vandal on our hands.[edit]

207.225.26.200 (talkcontribscentralauthpage movesblock userblock log)

It accuses me of ruining what it thought was updating the Toy Story page (when it was clearly vandalizing), which had been protected for a year before for good reason. But all of its edits were nothing but blatant vandalism and violation of copyright. I request this user be blocked for no less than a year (then again, its antagonistic behavior should be grounds for indefinite blocking) and all articles it vandalized, including all Toy Story articles, be protected for no less than the same period of time. DawgDeputy (talk) 03:05, 29 January 2020 (UTC)
Blocking it for one week is not going to stop it. One year should. DawgDeputy (talk) 03:10, 29 January 2020 (UTC)
The anon IP twerps who vandalize wikis typically do not used a fixed IP, and thus blocking an IP for even a day is usually sufficient, though sometimes several week-long blocks of IPs might be done on persistent vandals using changing IPs. I generally block the IPs of the more obviously obnoxious twerps a week, though sometimes more, if I believe it might be in any way effective. Where IP ranges are repeatedly used they are often blocked for months or a year. ~ ♌︎Kalki·⚓︎ 03:18, 29 January 2020 (UTC)
This one never changed IPs. Do observe its history of contributions, dating back to March of 2017. DawgDeputy (talk) 03:21, 29 January 2020 (UTC)
I have now blocked this IP for 3 months, and will note longer options and "range blocks" of longer duration might be used if further associated vandalism occurs. ~ ♌︎Kalki·⚓︎ 03:31, 29 January 2020 (UTC)
