Quote of the Day[edit]

When you add suggestions for Quote of the Day, as you did for April 9, remember to sign your name and add your vote. - InvisibleSun 15:56, 8 April 2009 (UTC)

Though it is not as yet a matter of any set policy, it has long been recommended practice that only one suggestion for QOTD per year be designated with a 4 by any voter, indicating that it "certainly" should be used — as this implies a sense of immediacy that lesser rankings do not. Too much use of the 4 ranking rather deflates the significance of a 4, and untempered use of it, without moderated consideration, would allow the momentary impulses of a single person to have disproportionately lasting influences for years thereafter. ~ Kalki 13:53, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

Shabbat editing prohibition[edit]

Please indicate your normal timezone on your username, just in case I or another editor accidentally edit during your shabbat. Thanks. --User:Tryst (talk to me!) 20:55, 9 July 2012 (UTC)

Is there maybe a template or something for that? --SuperJew (talk) 11:03, 20 July 2012 (UTC)
You also need to say which Bet Din you follow for your times, if there is more than one in your area.--Abramsky (talk) 20:21, 3 November 2013 (UTC)

How I Met Your Mother‎[edit]

It's unfortunate that an edit war occurred - a better explanation should have been provided (as you requested). In this case, it's better to refer you to WQ:LOQ - LOQ stands for Limits on quotations. For TV shows like this one, 2 quotes per episode are the limit. Thanks. ~ UDScott (talk) 13:50, 2 December 2013 (UTC)

I think you should give up on your nonsense reversions because frankly, that's all you've been good at nowadays. Nice try with your delusional accusations of me monopolizing the article. You're nothing more than a butthurt loser. Get lost you rat! --Eaglestorm (talk) 08:16, 27 December 2013 (UTC)

So much for being nice to fellow users... SuperJew (talk) 16:12, 28 December 2013 (UTC)
Thank you for your lame comebacks and you think using my edit summaries back at me works? You're still a troll clouding the article.
My supposedly "continued retardness"? Kid, the only one expressing that around these parts is YOU with your dumb ignorance of LOQ and trying to ramrod your quote when its not even that notable to begin with. Screw your drama-series arguments and its kinda pathetic of you when the only edits you've been doing these past couple of weeks is about that quote when you can probably be more useful in other articles. Begone. --Eaglestorm (talk) 18:31, 30 December 2013 (UTC)
I'm sorry oh great mister know it all. I didn't realize you were following me as well. or that it wasted so much precious time to revert your idiotic reversions. so anyways, who died and made you king? --SuperJew (talk) 06:57, 31 December 2013 (UTC)
As the edit wars between you and another user continue (with continued hostile edit summaries), you are temporarily blocked from editing. Once this block expires, please refrain from this behavior and work to come to some sort of compromise or agreement. Thanks. ~ UDScott (talk) 14:51, 2 January 2014 (UTC)
Sarcasm. The defense of the butthurt and outright whiners. I didn't realize you were such a fool who thinks his "funnier quote" should stay. Work on other articles instead. Thank you. --Eaglestorm (talk) 03:52, 5 January 2014 (UTC)
When you act like a civil human being, you might deserve to be treated as one. --SuperJew (talk) 14:42, 5 January 2014 (UTC)

The Bill Engvall Show[edit]

Since you're so hell-bent on getting off through the act of following and thwarting my every action on Wikiquote- even on pages I started- you might as well find something actually worthwhile to do with your time. I'll go with the two-quotes-per-page thing, that's policy, but quit messing with what quotes I do leave- you didn't even show any interest in this page until I created it and put one or two too many quotes. Alexandervonweimann (talk) 23:16, 21 September 2015‎ (UTC)

Hi. I'm just trying to keep the pages up to standard. What did I do that offended you apart from keeping the quotes at 2 per episode? If by mistake, I removed a quote you liked, you are more than welcome to return it so long as you only have 2 quotes per episode.
The square brackets and indenting changes I did are standard to Wikiquote.
And please sign your posts on talk pages. Thanks.
Cheers, --SuperJew (talk) 08:45, 22 September 2015 (UTC)
Also please refrain from personal attacks such as "you're so hell-bent on getting off" per WQ:NPA.
Furthermore, the fact that you created the page does not give you ruling over it or over the policy affecting it. This is a communal website, where everyone can participate and contribute in the framework of the policies.
--SuperJew (talk) 08:49, 22 September 2015 (UTC)
Sorry, the rudeness was over the line- and yes, I am aware that I don't have sole claim on a page just because I opened it. All the same, if you are following my every move on Wikiquote only for the sake of correcting my every mistake, please stop.
Also, if anything, I would suggest talking to Eaglestorm about online attacks, as he seems to have done you far more insult than I have. Isn't persistent hostile behavior a blockable offense? Or have you already had him blocked before?
Best wishes, Alexandervonweimann (talk) 22 September 2015 (UTC)
Apology accepted. The story between Eaglestorm and I is between us. If you are interested, from what I recall we were both in the wrong and both temporarily blocked. --SuperJew (talk) 17:46, 23 September 2015 (UTC)

Supergirl (TV series) page[edit]

Greetings, SuperJew.

There is now a Supergirl TV series page in Wikiquote: Supergirl (TV series). The only quotes are for the "Worlds Finest" episode, there's only one external link (I'm not a Hulu or IMDb subscriber) and I accidentally created a page template before making the page through the Help page. But, hey, it's my first page! :'(

Anyway... go wild, love child. Have fun with it, and spread the word. :D

Legend of Tomorrow opening voiceovers[edit]

Greetings, SuperJew.

Regarding Season 2's opening voiceovers on Legends: I suspect that the creators are having each character/cast member do a V/O of his/her own, particularly since this season is only scheduled for 16 episodes like season 1. And, since Rip isn't around right now, that seems to be a safe bet. Maybe villains like Damien Darhk and Eobard Thawne will be pitching in. (the mind races, does it not?)

That said, I believe that each episodes individual opening V/O can be put above the individual episode's entry in Wikiquotes without violating the LoQ. This is a unique circumstance, in that other shows (not just "Arrowverse" shows) haven't done anything like this. Also, the opening V/O isn't a "quote" in the strictest sense, so I don't see any real violation.

Anyway, just thought I'd add my 2 cents. Let's talk further, 'kay?

Take it easy.

Ooznoz (talk) 13:26, 28 October 2016 (UTC)Ooznoz

Hey Ooznoz, I was just about to drop you a line after adding the quotes :)
I was thinking along the same lines. I was thinking we should wait till the end of the season to see what we're working with. If let's say only the Legends will have v/o and they'll be repeated, maybe just have a section for voiceovers? that's why I kept it but commented. --SuperJew (talk) 13:29, 28 October 2016 (UTC)
Yeah, it's possible they'll cycle back and repeat one or more as the season goes on. We'll have to see, although if they do do that, it'll probably show up midway through the season. I don't think a separate section is needed for individualized V/Os. That could just be confusing, unless they keep this up over the course of the entire series (I feel a headache coming on). Just need to wait and see, I suppose. This is your page, your baby. I'm just here to help. Ooznoz (talk) 13:42, 28 October 2016 (UTC)Ooznoz
It's everyone's page, I don't own it. I really appreciate your help and thoughts. Let's for now keep them commented until the end of the season and then we'll discuss it? --SuperJew (talk) 13:54, 28 October 2016 (UTC)
Okay by me. Talk to you later. Ooznoz (talk) 15:31, 28 October 2016 (UTC)Ooznoz
@Ooznoz: I noticed that on WQ:LOQ it says Quotes not assigned to specific characters are discarded. I wonder if the voiceovers would be in that category? --SuperJew (talk) 20:22, 30 October 2016 (UTC)
@SuperJew: I would say they aren't. These are opening narrations - Think "Space - the final frontier" or the openings for The Prisoner. They aren't "assigned" to Kirk or Number 6, nor are any other openings "assigned" to the character(s) saying them. They are just the openers. But, that's just my take on it -- we may need to have a consensus reached on this before going further. Let me know what develops. (Sorry I took so long to respond, been preoccupied.)

Greetings from Ooznoz[edit]

Greetings, SuperJew.

Bad news: my home computer went belly up, so I won't be able to help you much with the quotes pages for Arrowverse. I can still use other computers, but my access is limited and I won't be able to do much to contribute for quite a while. Sorry about that.

Hope you have a festive holiday season. Talk later.

Ooznoz (talk) 22:20, 21 November 2016 (UTC)Ooznoz

That's a real shame Ooznoz. Your edits are really helpful. I'm also right now on a bit of a slower rate, since uni schedule is getting back into full swing. Hope you'll be back fully soon! --SuperJew (talk) 22:24, 21 November 2016 (UTC)

New page: Invasion! (Arrowverse)[edit]

Greetings, SuperJew.

Just added a new page of quotes: Invasion! (Arrowverse). Look it over. Soak it in. Enjoy (I hope). Let me know what you think.

Talk to you later. Thanks.

Ooznoz (talk) 12:24, 5 December 2016 (UTC)Ooznoz

@Ooznoz: I'm wondering about it's notability, as a few episodes, and also it's just a repetition of stuff found on the relevant season pages, no? --SuperJew (talk) 17:39, 5 December 2016 (UTC)

No, it's not all repetition. Just those that are relevant to the main topic, i.e., the Dominators' invasion and the heroes reaction to it, during and after (which is what I limited the quotes to). Plus, the main Wiki has a page devoted to this crossover (Invasion! (Arrowverse)), so I believe Wikiquotes should have a corresponding one.

Ooznoz (talk) 20:06, 5 December 2016 (UTC)Oonoz

@Ooznoz: It's not something I've even ever considered, so I'm not sure.
@UDScott: Could we have your thoughts about it? --SuperJew (talk) 20:08, 5 December 2016 (UTC)


Greetings, SuperJew. Hope this isn't on the Sabbat. You and I are on different time zones, and I can't quite figure out the conversion. As I write this, it's after 8:00 p.m. on Saturday night.

Thanks for the LOTR clip, it was fun to watch. And thanks also for the reference; I wouldn't have gotten it otherwise. You're not the first to strongly recommend that I read/watch LOTR. Sword & Sorcery has never really been my thing. I have read some of the Conan stories and did try to start LOTR, but never got too far into them. But, if I have a 3-day weekend to kill and have nothing else, I'll see about giving it a try.

I have been reading superhero comics since I was a zygote, and I've been reading about them and the genre my adult life. I have an extensive reference library on superheroes which I keep adding to as finances allow. I've also watched superhero movies and TV shows since I was a kid. I remember the original Super Friends show and Challenge of the Super Friends that introduced the Legion of Doom. (Yes, I am that old. And that pathetic. lol) BTW, the Legends episode "The Legion of Doom" is the BEST one they've done yet. If only the series had started out that good.... And, I watched The Flash series from 1990 and was sorry it didn't continue. John Wesley Shipp as Jay Garrick is inspired casting.

On that subject, I need to bounce an idea off someone of like mind. I believe Jay knows more about Savitar and Iris's fate than he's let on. Not that he's a Reverse-Flash/Zoom-type mole (enough with that), but there were several odd things dropped in his appearance in the mid-season Xmas episode:

1. He knew far more about Savitar than seemed credible. Even Barry seemed to question it. 2. He tells Barry to appreciate the ones he loves "while you still have them". That seemed a damned odd thing to say. 3. He was the one who insisted on taking on Savitar alone while Barry retrieved the Stone. 4. Savitar tells Jay "This is not your fight, Garrick." How does Savitar know Jay at all? Jay said earlier he'd never encountered him, only knew of him. 5. It was Jay's suggestion to throw the Philosopher's Stone into the Speed Force, and rather abruptly at that. Why did he think that that would be a good thing to do?

I may be reading too much into little things, but those moments seemed like clues to something to me. Maybe something will come of it, maybe not, but it is a possibility. What do you think? And, are there any others you know of who might have an opinion?

Anyway, thanks again for the clip. Hope to talk to you later.

Hey Ooznoz :)
You're alright with the Sabbath. I'm guessing you're on the US East Coast? My time zone is currently +2, so it's a 7 hour difference. Anyways, I don't have a problem with people writing to me on the Sabbath, I just want them to be aware that I won't reply until afterwards (and now I noticed I've updated my message on my Wikipedia page but not here, so I'm doing that now. Also understood why your first message went to my commons page.. fixed that too.
Regarding the LOTR books, I know a lot of people who didn't manage to deal with the books (I myself struggled with a bunch of the more boring chapters), but who thoroughly enjoyed the movie. For a first Tolkein reading experience I'd recommend The Hobbit.
I'm happy to hear Legends is getting great. This month, I have less time than usual to keep up-to-date as I'm (allegedly) studying for exams.
Hmm your points about Jay do seem to point toward him being a Zoom-type mole, but indeed that is a tiring plot device already so I really hope not. Personally, I find it hard to take any implications too seriously on shows which have time-travel (and are about loosey with any rules governing it).
Take care and thanks for helping keep the pages updated (especially at this period of the uni year), --SuperJew (talk) 08:13, 5 February 2017 (UTC)
