title correction...[edit]

I noticed a page you seem to be creating or linking to was misnamed "User/Miszatomic|Themes" when I believe what you meant to type was probably "User:Miszatomic/Themes|Themes." Just making a note of this as I once again prepare to leave. I hope to do a bit more on the project within the next day or two, but have numerous things keeping me busy. ~ Kalki·· 20:38, 13 February 2015 (UTC)

I see you already created it while I typed the above — you might want to correct the link you made though. ~ Kalki·· 20:41, 13 February 2015 (UTC)

Bias vs. Prejudice[edit]

I just got in after having been gone much of the day, and I noticed you had just redirected Bias into Prejudice. While the concepts are definitely related, I believe bias is a more general term which can include irrational or rationalized forms of prejudices and assumptions, as well as dispositions which are not limited to the "pre-judgment" of prejudice. I know that they are often used as if they were synonyms, but there are definitely significant distinctions in some uses of the terms. While the Bias page was so small it is not a big deal as yet, and I am not going to revert the change, I would prefer the pages eventually both be separate articles, probably with some overlap, and might work on both in coming months. I am too busy with too many other things to do much with either of them right now. ~ Kalki·· 22:54, 17 February 2015 (UTC)

To make a summary of some of the ways I myself tend to distinctly use the words, I would say that all prejudicial assessments are not always entirely wrong, nor all biases improper or unjust, but such qualities are very common in both aspects of human attitudes, and both, when left unexamined or unchallenged can be very dangerous, and full of errors conducive to many forms of further errors and even profound forms of evil. To transcend attachment to either is usually a mark of wisdom, even as tolerating the ignorance and confusions of those who cannot yet do so is often prudent, in efforts to help them and others to eventually do so. ~ Kalki·· 23:04, 17 February 2015 (UTC)
    • Thank you for the tip. Miszatomic 23:15, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

merges and protection[edit]

Hello Misz. Things are calmer now, no? Just a reminder: when moving (merging) material from one page into another, it's important to make that clear in the edit summary, to make the history of edits list all contributors (or make them traceable). Something simple like "moved from [[page name]]" should be enough. Okay, one more thing: maybe you'll want to change the protection level of your talk page (remove it) so IPs can edit it again.

My talk page[edit]

I'm curious why my talk page was deleted and why I am not allowed to have one. I honestly do not know whether I had anything in my talk page, but please clarify what is going on. Wpollard (talk) 12:49, 14 March 2015 (UTC)

    • Page was created by a blocked vandal. Miszatomic (talk) 13:02, 14 March 2015
    • I was informed of what happened and what you had to do to fix this. Thank you for doing this. I just looked through my edits and found that I indeed never created my own talk page. I do not edit in Wikiquote much, but I visit here occasionally. Wpollard (talk) 21:59, 14 March 2015 (UTC)

Delete vandalized user page[edit]

Yes check.svgY Done, Miszatomic (talk) 12:02, 20 March 2015 (UTC)

Global auto-block[edit]

Hello. My account was compromised during my absence. Can you indefinitely block my account globally to prevent damage to all sister wiki projects? Thanks for collaborating! --BScMScMD (talk) 04:36, 8 April 2015 (UTC)

I don't know the situation at the moment but this seems to be some sock account that has a history of personal attacks on users. I will look into it further. Miszatomic 10:43, 8 April 2015[edit]

Hello Miszatomic. Could you block this IP? Every edit they make is vandalism. ~ DanielTom (talk) 18:27, 12 April 2015 (UTC)

Yes check.svgY Done, blocked for one month Miszatomic (talk) 19:30, 12 April 2015 (UTC)
Thanks. ~ DanielTom (talk) 18:34, 12 April 2015 (UTC)
He keeps vandalizing [1], I think you're going to have to block him again. ~ DanielTom (talk) 22:47, 19 April 2015 (UTC)


what was my wrong in my page ?


Hi, can you block this ip? --Matiia (talk) 21:30, 25 April 2015 (UTC)

Yes check.svgY Done, One month should do, thanks for the notice. Miszatomic (talk) 21:34, 25 April 2015 (UTC)

Block vandal[edit]

Hi Miszatomic, please block this vandal. Thanks.--Syum90 (talk) 10:04, 25 June 2015 (UTC)

Yes check.svgY Done, thank you, - Miszatomic (talk) 11:14, 25 June 2015 (UTC)

Block 70Jack90[edit]

Would you do us all a favor and please block 70Jack90 for its false allegation against me? WikiLubber (talk) 23:17, 28 June 2015 (UTC)

Furthermore, it has been undoing all my highly-justified edits and constantly failed to comply with Wikiquote's limitations on quotes. WikiLubber (talk) 00:09, 1 July 2015 (UTC)
And now it has become the real sockpuppet, as its other account: 90Jack70, has proven. WikiLubber (talk) 00:12, 1 July 2015 (UTC)

The Black Cauldron (film)[edit]

IPs are constantly vandalizing The Black Cauldron (film). Could you pls semi-protect it? Thanks ~ DanielTom (talk) 15:07, 26 September 2015 (UTC)

Pls semi-protect it again, the vandal is back. ~ DanielTom (talk) 14:35, 3 November 2015 (UTC)
Yes check.svgY Done The Black Cauldron (film) semi protected for 6 months IP blocked for 3 months Miszatomic 20:00, 3 November 2015 (UTC)

another vandal[edit]

Hi Miszatomic. Can you pls block vandal (talkcontribspage movesblock userblock log)? He keeps vandalizing Seth MacFarlane and other pages. Thx ~ DanielTom (talk) 18:47, 9 December 2015 (UTC)

Yes check.svgY Done Seth MacFarlane semi protected for 3 months IP blocked for 2 weeks Miszatomic 19:09, 3 December 2015 (UTC)

1, grossly offensive attack. Thanks. ---Atcovi (Talk - Contribs) 12:42, 8 February 2016 (UTC)

Wikiquote:WikiProject Weekly Cleanup[edit]

Is this going to be active? Are you still participating in this? ---Atcovi (Talk - Contribs) 19:37, 6 March 2016 (UTC)

    • yes I am still participating -Miszatomic 19:49, 6 March 2016 (UTC)

vandalism on Mark Zuckerberg[edit]

I noticed that you blocked (talk · contributions) for vandalizing the Mark Zuckerberg page. However, I believe this user's edits are actually legitimate. From what I could tell, Zuckerberg did, in fact, refer to Facebook users as "Dumb f**ks." [2] It was actually (talk · contributions) that vandalized the article. --Ixfd64 (talk) 18:11, 7 April 2016 (UTC)

Static Shock[edit]

I'm not sure the splitting of this TV show into individual season pages really helps the problems that were on this page. In addition to necessary cleanup, there remain too many quotes - it should be trimmed down to 2 per episode - and spreading it into four pages instead of 1 does not remove this problem. In fact, if it were properly trimmed, having them all on one page should not be an issue. ~ UDScott (talk) 12:39, 18 April 2016 (UTC)

Wikiquote:Village pump[edit]

Hello Miszatomic. Thanks again for your great work fighting vandalism. (You already know this, but please always be careful not to protect or semi-protect pages for too long, unless they really are the targets of persistent vandalism.) Some people are objecting to the Wikiquote:Village pump being semi-protected for a week – for other pages that would normally be considered a short time, but the Village pump is a bit special, as newcomers may want to use it to ask questions or get help, so if possible it should be left unprotected. So, can you unprotect it? Thx ~ DanielTom (talk) 22:03, 16 May 2016 (UTC)

    • Yes check.svgY Done I have removed the protection so other users can edit Miszatomic 22:09, 16 May 2016 (UTC)
Great, thank you. ~ DanielTom (talk) 22:13, 16 May 2016 (UTC)
