Ah, well.
I've got a funny feeling that the parcel won't arrive, and I've had it for a while, my dear (parcels attract nosey buggers) :P So I'd sent a card/letter thingme a day after. If you get the card first, well, I'll have to go glare at people... *blush* Just never mind the terrible handwriting and grammar errors, when you do get it; 'twas 2am when I'd written it, yes I do suck XD
I wanted to ask you: On Understand British Terms, it says to knock someone up is to knock on their door. I've always known it to mean something else :P Am I just being too Canadian, or is the article correct?... meself and my family, we just say "pop over". Whaddaya think?
Muchos hugs and lovage x0x0x

Enough examples, eh Benn?! XD I guess we're just the new generation then. Hm. Don't you think it should be removed, then? As... you know.. :P
I think the people who added the sayings and such to the article, were just Canericans who watched Harry Potter a few times over :P Tsk tsk. Not even a word of Cokcney slang/EastEnders gab in there.
There are loads of these kindsa articles.. Understand Canadian Slang... :P In Britain, is it a can of soda or a can of pop?

Hi! Happy Holidays and Happy Belated Birthday!

I was wondering if you had a minute to help me with a title change issue.

Meet the Right Woman needs to have it's title changed to reflect the lesbian focus of the article.

Following the title change guidelines, I used Google Suggest and Google AdWords which were really no help. AdWords mostly produced a list of words better suited to describe lesbian porn. Anyway, I was wondering if you had an ideas. I thought maybe Find the Right Lesbian Partner would fit, but maybe you have a better idea.

Nice userpage btw. You did a great job of incorporating the holiday theme without going over the top.

Great! I'll change it now. Thanks!

Hello Bennelliott:

My username is Yasmine81. Lucky Bear left a message on my talk page listing you as someone I could ask for help. I seem to have a problem, I can’t log in.

Every time I try it says I’m logged in, but then when I go to do something I’m not. This morning it says I have the wrong password, but last night it would just say I was logged in and then I wasn’t as soon as I did anything. What am I doing wrong?

At 21:25, Dec 24, 2007 said:

What is going on with all the messages above this one saying I was blocked?

At 21:28, Dec 24, 2007 said:

Ok, I will try that. *thanx*

At 21:29, Dec 24, 2007 said:

I think the problem might be my IP address, because sometimes it says it’s blocked, and sometimes it doesn't.

At 21:34, Dec 24, 2007 said:

I have never been to this site before. I just heard about it over lunch day before yesterday.

At 21:39, Dec 24, 2007 said:

I don't know. I'm not into how computers work I just use them, but if you mean a proxy then yes.

At 21:43, Dec 24, 2007 said:

I understand, but what should I do about it? The apartment I live in comes with satellite internet and cable, and they use a proxy.

At 21:48, Dec 24, 2007 said:

When they open, I’ll talk to them and see what happens. But thank you for all the help just the same. =)

Why are you reverting back my changes? and who are you to make the decision that I can or cannot make a link?

Might I add: three revert rule applies to you too

well - Its not a hate based article; Its giving people another side of a story; Please do not revert back;

Loiswade42Lois Wade said:

I'm going to post this on BOTH of your pages... Take a deep breath both of you.

The article in question is nominated for deletion... Please wait until the community weighs in on it's merits or demerits before either of you does yet another revert or edit on it.

There's no need to warn each other... or squawk that the other is "vandalizing" anything... Please...just chill and let the NFD comment process occur without further assumption of bad faith on either of your parts, okay?

If an IP-only user leaves a message on a Talk or Discussion page that consists only of a link, with some HTML coding, don't bother sending them {{exlinks}} -- nobody will ever see it. Just report them on the Admin Notice Board, and we'll block the spambot.

Thanks for your edit for the Guitar article. It's very neat!!11

ChoicefreshChoicefresh said:

Why did you put on the Admin Notice Board? It looks like giving them {{exlinks}} would've been better...

At 06:42, Dec 30, 2007

Julia-MaureenJulia Maureen said:

I was just going over the Administrator Notice Board.. Your recent addition, I cannot remember the IP address, was spamming, true enough.. However.. You gave them no warning, no information.. I blocked them for a week since we have such little tolerance for it. Before you put vandals and spammers on the admin notice board next time, though, be sure to warn them first, or just tell them that what they are doing is wrong. The notice board is for administrators to block, delete, remove, etc. Warning can be done by anyone, and it's expected for the warning to be done before the matters are given to us.

At 18:08, Dec 30, 2007

Julia-MaureenJulia Maureen said:

Hm, no, in this case, I think the exlink thing would have worked. The links he was posting were.. Kinda... Relevent. Kinda. Under the circumstances, I think he probably should have been warned or notified first.

Thanks for helping wikiHow grow into something beautiful.

Congrats on your 2000th edit!!x

At 05:41, Dec 31, 2007

ChoicefreshChoicefresh said:

Well, you have to look at their contributions. If it looks like it is from a spambot (i.e. all edits are random letters and then spam links) then you should post it to the Admin Notice Board. But if there is the slightest chance that the person is not a spambot, then you can just use {{spammer}} or {{exlinks}}.

D-raeD rae said:

I'm so proud of you :) You've grown so much since I "met" you back in... June (?) :P Editing and real life thingers counted xx
Speaking of editing, you're giving me a run for my money! I'm either getting really lazy busy, or you're getting really good :D I think it's a wee bit of both! Here's to another 2,000!
Happy new year to you, too! Wishing you all the best for 2008 xxx

Thanks for asking. No I am not ok...and I am deciding at this moment to leave wikihow.

I am prone to selecting to leave.

that attack was made by Trina or one of her friends...

D-raeD rae said:

You're too adorable :P
"Erm. Somethings happened, but it's okay, I had a gut feeling so I was prepared."- *shocked* Eh? You alright? You've got me, now... *hugs* What happened? xxxx

Dreamgal2Sondra C said:

That outpour that she wrote on the discussion page and on the forum, is read by bloggers all over the world.

This type of nonsense can break wikiHow, and I do not want to be around to help cause that.

I have worked too hard for too long to help wikiHow grow to see it hurt because of meaninless untruths, or because others think that I contribute too much, or know very little about what I do.

If I leave, then there will be no one here to bear the brunt of their anger, and wikiHow will no longer be in harm.

wikiHow is my passion, and the the mission is all that I care about helping.

I do not search for for problems here, I mind my own business, help those that ask, and just contribute in every aspect of this site .

But I seem to be a source of irritation to some, or critized for others for some reason or other.

So I have a big decision to make and one of them is to whether leave here and maybe calm will prevail....and of my love for wikiHow and all it stands for, and remain and keep on the ride of making it bigger and better.

D-raeD rae said:

Ooookay... well... that was embarrassing! I can't believe what an idiot I can be..
Hm. Who started this talk, you or him? My Lord... you sure it's alright? I can come over there this weekend, seriously..I'm free! I'm free every weekend, sadly... but we'll just ignore that! I have to go to London anyway :P
Wowee. I feel terrible, now. I hope the parcel/letter gets lost in the mail. I said things that... well.... Ugh. Idiot!

Your words fill my heart with its tenderness and sincerity. It is not one person but a few, a few who I thought were my friends, but found out otherwise by a few words they posted.

I never say anything to brag, I am past needing to toot my own horn. I have never and never will need contribution credit to egg me on here. I do what I do for the honest and sincere love of this vision and this Mission. If others cannot see that, then I am sorry for them.

My words are misinterpreted, and my edits as of late, closely scrutinized by others, hoping to find a flaw in my edits.

I research or edit articles and find of late that I am being followed by others. It is uncomfortable to know that others are looking over your shoulder watching your evey move, waiting for you to make an error so they can taunt you with it.

I find this of late, and read it on the post. I like others am a volunteer here, I do this for Jack who had a mission. I work closely with Jack on many things...I believe in him and his vision, and I love wikiHow with a passion. I do not bother anyone, nor ask anything of anyone.

I was told once by a very wise contributor, that I can never leave here, because my voice, and my experiences are needed to balance the younger age group here. I believed him and I attempt to teach others by setting an example, or teaching through the edit bar.

However yesterday I got the impression that all that I attempt to teach or do, is sadly taken the wrong way and by some who I thought were my friends, who I helped to grow on here, and nurtured.

A stab in the back hurts...the knife is sharp, and the voice that this contributor said is badly needed on here, has been silented.

I have taken into account the many messages of support I have received from you and others, and decided that I love wikiHow and the community too much to leave.

Hey, you should now be able to edit the template described here.

Yes, we are nearing 2008... 7 hours and 10 minutes for me!

At 13:00, Jan 01, 2008

D-raeD rae said:

Well, if you say so. If you need anything though, you know where to find me <3
I'm not in London just yet, I may not even go because of school and such... but since you asked... My Grandmother needs to go for some reason, and she needs someone reliable with her; my aunt in Aberdeen has been diagnosed with cancer, so she needs looking after. And then there's my uncle in Dublin, who's just been laid off, and he needs some help, too. *sigh*
My uncle can look after himself, it's the others that have to have someone around. My cousins/uncles/aunts etc. promised to go help out... but I really want to go... ah, never mind.
Heh heh, moving right along... couldjya do me a favour and fix the spacing problems on the BSP's project page? Or does it look fine to you?
Huge hugs xxxxx D. Jamie

KalsikumKals said:

The colours gave me problems too. I thought to myself, since the background color of wikihow is white, why not make the color of the template itself white. Thats really how I got the colour white. =) Actually the template's acting strange sometimes. When you click number one from the main page's discussion page, you may see the font of the lower portion of the template just got bigger for no apparent reason. Maybe its because of my firefox.

Ooh, my bad! Line spacing... and such. I dunno, the whole thing just doesn't look right to me :P
