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. Cheers ~ DanielTom (talk) 18:13, 9 March 2015 (UTC)

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]

Hi Miszatomic, can you delete my vandalized user page, please? Thanks in advance.--Syum90 (talk) 11:59, 20 March 2015 (UTC)

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)

what was my wrong in my page ?


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

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)

Edit summaries[edit]

Hi there. While I am all for your trimming efforts on our many bloated pages, when you leave edit summaries like "formatting" when you trim quotes, it is a bit misleading (e.g. your recent edit to Sonic the Hedgehog cartoons, where you left that edit summary, but trimmed nearly 22,000 characters). For a better accounting of the work, please consider a more descriptive edit summary that actually reflects what you did. Thanks! ~ UDScott (talk) 16:34, 5 June 2016 (UTC)

Miszatomic, I notice that you are still doing this, a lot. I would like to reinforce UDScott's request by noting that it is very helpful, when reviewing the recent changes log and article histories, if experienced users like yourself provide informative edit summaries. It's not just about providing an accounting "for the record":
  1. It helps other reviewers see at a glance what is actually going on, saving a lot of time and trouble.
  2. Summaries like "trimming per limits on quotations" can help the uninitiated (or stubborn) understand the reasons behind your actions.
Please try to provide informative edit summaries, and avoid summaries that are uninformative or even misleading. Thanks, ~ Ningauble (talk) 15:43, 12 June 2016 (UTC)

semi-protection request[edit]

Could you semi-protect The Black Cauldron (film) again? Thanks ~ DanielTom (talk) 16:27, 24 June 2016 (UTC)

    • Yes check.svgY Done semi-protected for 3 months Miszatomic 5:41, 24 June 2016 (UTC)

Could I get your opinion as to whether my citation fixes are "subtle vandalism" or if is rather Daniel Toms uncivil and disruptive behavior warrants correction?[edit]

[3] I have a very long and sorted history with Daniel Tom, and although they normally have some basis for their reverts, this is a very clear cut matter of whether my recent citation fixes are correct or not, which I believe they are as every single style guide suggests ending citations with a period and my other grammatical fixes such as italicizing titles and using commas between entries (or periods in the case of the APA) are also near universally implemented. I've been copying their language substituting meat back for incompetent as I assume all editors are made out of meat, while incompetence is in fact a legal term.

Sorry for bothering you with this mess, I thought being a wiki gnome was welcomed, but I guess not. I wouldhave at least liked knowing what I did wrong from DT, but I guess I don't deserve that as "the most incompetent editor". CensoredScribe (talk) 18:09, 27 June 2016 (UTC)

Captain America(n)[edit]

Hi :) just wanted to report that it should be Category:Captain America films, not "American". Bye ;) --Superchilum (talk) 12:34, 11 July 2016 (UTC)

No worries - I've fixed it. ~ UDScott (talk) 12:41, 11 July 2016 (UTC)

Urgent message[edit]

Numerous IP addresses continuously make unnecessary edits (and vandalism edits to boot) on the following pages:

Toy Story
Toy Story 2
Toy Story 3
Monsters, Inc.
Monsters University
The Incredibles name but a few, and they refuse to cease and desist, nor even explain their edits. I request that all those IP addresses be blocked for the maximum time allowed, and that all pages on which they have edited be protected for at least six months. WikiLubber (talk) 17:48, 26 September 2016 (UTC)

protection request[edit]

The Black Cauldron (film) and All Dogs Go to Heaven need to be semi-protected again. Thanks in advance. ~ DanielTom (talk) 18:10, 2 October 2016 (UTC)

Hello. The Black Cauldron (film) needs to be semi-protected, again. ~ DanielTom (talk) 10:06, 14 December 2016 (UTC)

First words in recordings[edit]

Hello! You have deleted this site, and I ask why. Other contributors are welcome. The article is a linguistic and sociologic study of when the words have become allowed or actual in recordings. Can You find this information elsewhere? At least the people should have an opportunity to discuss! --Risto hot sir (talk) 10:21, 11 November 2016 (UTC)

Miszatomic, when deleting pages please remember to provide a reason in the deletion log. (I notice you have usually not been doing this.)
Risto hot sir, I will provide an opportunity to discuss this by nominating the page at Votes for deletion. Please feel free to participate in that discussion. ~ Ningauble (talk) 14:58, 11 November 2016 (UTC)

Removing {{checkcopyright}}[edit]

Hi Miszatomic. When you remove {{checkcopyright}} tags from articles that have been split into episode pages (because there are no quotes left on the "main" page), please consider adding the tags to the individual episode pages. Very often the tagged problem has not gone away, it has been spread around in more problematic articles. ~ Ningauble (talk) 15:11, 7 January 2017 (UTC)

Hi. Can you please block coyotedomino (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · logs · edit filter log · block user · block log). He has vandalized my user page by writing that I am a kitten. Just A Regular New Yorker (talk) 00:04, 11 December 2017 (UTC)

Thank you very much. I hope this will teach this user a lesson. I myself got blocked from Wikipedia so I know how this feels for him/her. Hopefully, this experiance will shape this user into a helpful editor. Just A Regular New Yorker (talk) 01:57, 12 December 2017 (UTC)

Category:Japanese poets[edit]

Risto hot sir has requested that I ask the community about what should be done regarding the numerous articles listed under Category:Japanese poets. You will know what I mean after you read a few and start to see the trend. They are all a possible copyright violation, they are all of non-notable people who don't even have a Wikipedia article, they are all from one source and they all clog up this category. You can read more about this here, here, here, and here. Just A Regular New Yorker (talk) 22:53, 13 March 2018 (UTC)

JARNY seems to want a lot of edits asking opinions from numerous people. The voting is over, the case is closed.--Risto hot sir (talk) 23:15, 13 March 2018 (UTC)
I didn't realize that their was something wrong with wanting administrators to edit. You seem desperate for any chance to insult me even if it is not logical.
Silence does not mean disagreement. The vote is not closed, seeing as it has yet to be archived from the Village Pump. You are the one who so desperately wanted a vote, and I am helping you by bringing it directly to the attention of the administrators. Just A Regular New Yorker (talk) 23:23, 13 March 2018 (UTC)
You're just wasting time.--Risto hot sir (talk) 23:30, 13 March 2018 (UTC)

If you are not interested in helping, than you don't need to. You have my full permission to let me handle this. The only person who is wasting time is the one who interrupts conversations with, "JARNY seems to want a lot of edits asking opinions from numerous people. The voting is over, the case is closed.". Just A Regular New Yorker (talk) 23:35, 13 March 2018 (UTC) The only person who wants to discuss of these Japanese poets is you.--Risto hot sir (talk) 23:39, 13 March 2018 (UTC)

That’s exactly why I am doing this; to let other users know about this so that they may do something about it, as you requested. Just A Regular New Yorker (talk) 23:56, 13 March 2018 (UTC)

Remove boldface from most "Last words"[edit]

Hello. Can you please weigh in and give your opinion at Wikiquote:Village pump#Boldface in all "last words"?
