Hey Bob, looks like you came across and deleted a couple of nonsense articles I was making to test redesign features. Sorry to make extra work for you!

Chris was a hint, but I normally think to throw an {{inuse}} on articles I make like that.

Congratulations your article View a Blue Angels Airshow has been selected as a Rising Star, which means it is one of the very best new articles on wikiHow. Thank you for writing an exceptionally high quality article.

In the near future, Rising Star articles will be instantly promoted to the wikiHow homepage so many readers can quickly see your good work.

Thanks. This is my first time around the block with WikiHow. I think I have now converted the article "How to Become a Business Broker" to the WikiHow format, as requested.

I've removed the personal references and further reformatted. Could you check, and if appropriate, remove the notice at the top of the article stating that it needs reformatting.

Aw, you're way too sweet! I really love your article and I'm way surprised it was your first RS but then again, given you are incredibly diligent and caring with RC, I can see you don't get as much time for the writing. We'll have to see what we can do about that next year! I do hope you have a wonderful holiday season and a very Happy New Year. ~ Flic

At 23:48, Dec 27, 2009 said:

BR I think you missed the point in adding that page to protection. The other administrator continues to remove information which adds to the article in a positive, beneficial way. I somewhat agree with Maluniu's assessment of my initial edits, but the newer edits are not the same as the original ones and are much more positive and "serious". Having read all of the guidelines I believe my additions are in line with what WikiHow is, and with what WikiHow is not.

Removing the edits would be violation of several policies listed in what WikiHow is not. 14, which expresses that we shouldn't be helping people make moral decisions on WikiHow. Maluniu posted on my IP's talk page the reason for her edit was "A person should not consume their life towards video games and if so, they should seek help.". Basically, she deleted the content based on her own personal beliefs, which she would like to enforce upon everyone reading the article.

Additionally, deleting the content is a way of expressing an opinion. By removing the content you disagree with you force all readers to only see that viewpoint, which is also censorship. (What WikiHow is not, guidelines 15 and 18).

For these reasons I believe my edits are valid and should not be deleted or undone. They might need tweaking, but the edits stand on their own and should remain in the article.

Thank you. -MT

Hiya Bob! I tried to give this article a boost: Refinish Kitchen Cabinets. I don't know if it's accurate, though, or grossly incomplete, since I've never refinished cabinets. Can you take a look and see what you can do?

Sorry about that, Bob. I was categorizing under the Uncategorized Pages and didn't actually look at the article...oops! I hope it's not too much trouble to reload the images...

JackHerrickJack H said:

This is such a bummer! We need a new image server. And we are getting one next week. But right now, the current one is a little flaky. That is probably the problem here.

I see all your images here now:

Perhaps it just needed some time to catch up. Hopefully all will be OK without hassles for you. If not, I expect the image server will solve problems like this by next week.

Ah, I think I have the understanding now, so I must thank you.

  • My talkpage I can put on and remove whatever I like
  • Unless you don't like it for some reason, then you'll come over and change it to how you like.

I find this all very much confusing and tastes of double standard, because I don't like the telling of lies by omission (what you do when you delete what I have to say on your User:Talk), like the fire-bug says when asked "Did you light the fire with that match?" he says "I lit my cigar" but could easily have actioned both.

DifuWuDifu Wu said:

Thanks Bob! I did not see that edit summary during patrolling and only saw his two edits combined into one with empty edit summary (apparently, when edits of the same editor are combined in RC patrol, only the edit summary for the latest edit is shown), and saw that he blanked out a lot of useful content compared to last edit by Flickety that I thought was legit, so my instinct was to revert. But now I see why he removed them, so I have reverted my edit there. Thanks for picking that one up :)

It is a good thing that your marriage is distracting you a great deal!

Thanks for explaining your edit on my recent edits.

However, I fail to understand how is that link a violation of the guidelines regarding external links. It does not point to a commercial product or service, and the pages of that blog have no advertising what so ever. The link just helps people completing that specific step more quickly. The application is free, no charges, no donations required. And it fits the article subject (I do have very good feedbacks from the actual users of the application and I'm pretty sure that a very big part of them have come to the download page from this wikihow article in the last two months).

More, until the January 11 2010 the link was not considered spam. The initial link to the blog was introduced by me on November 24 2009 (at that time I was not registered with wikiHow, I made the edits from IP

Also, I fail to understand why is my link different from similar links in the same article.

I hope you will investigate the matter again and rollback the changes. I'll try to wait patiently and not re-edit the article...

Thank you. Best regards, Cicerone Pavaloi

FlicketyFlickety said:

He, he, he. I couldn't resist noting the irony of the situation myself, which is why it was doubly delish to see you rescue that article. It makes me smile at the challenge presented to ensure a good topic doesn't get deleted; I love it when people show me otherwise on my NFD recommendations! Anyway, you did a marvellous save, sweet as.

Thanks for your kind words too. I've been having a little fun lately. ~ Flic

At 01:57, Jan 23, 2010

JBaseJBase said:

Thank you for your reply: However to state that our resource is for promotion is simply not true. We are a registered non-profit church and we provide resources for the LGBT community and people who wish to get ordained.

The edits were made to "significant improve the article" as the LGBT community is not properly represented which the article, thus the addition of our step 2 "After researching decide which online church best represents your lifestyle." was added. Which is relevant to this article. Our edit enhances the article to include the LGBT community and is not intended for promotion.

The citation was added for reference to the step we added, not a "source link".

As far being biased, Please take a close look at steps 2 and 3 - Why are these steps? The steps have nothing to do with getting ordained. They are simply promotion for these websites. Why have they not been removed publicizing?

I will be contacting Chris Hadley with my concerns on this matter and revisions.

Thank you, jbase

Sorry to hear you're hitting some roadblocks with the new image upload tool. :( Hopefully they'll get it straightened out soon. It really is a nifty tool.

Other than that, how are you? I went on an epic hike the other day when the sun broke through our ever-present rain clouds, but I guess it was a little too chilly for me at the peak because now I'm fighting off a cold!

Hi, In case you didn't know, this was me logged out. His site was already on the blacklist (twice) but he was using rollback to keep getting it back in so I made another edit to stop that tactic. I obviously don't care that you reverted it. I'm just letting you know what was going on there in case you see something similar next week after you add his new domain to the blacklist.

Thanks to you, we probably have the finest collection of articles on how to use various types of heavy machinery anywhere. It's been a while since we've had one of your FAs, and I really enjoyed seeing it. Brought back memories, too. I used one of those when I worked building boats in the late 90s. I appreciate you sharing it with us!

Dear "BR",

I am not sorry at all to inform you of this but my article "How to Burn Boredom" is no way, in any shape or form a good candidate for "speedy deletion".

I have read over your deletion policies and have come to the conclusion that my article does not break any of these rules and therefore, should not be subject to deletion.

Also, I have recieved comments saying that this IS an informative article and did in fact burn their boredom and make them smile.

Please reconsider your pending deletion on my article.

Thank you for your time. Fellow Wikihow-er, lovelinz13

Please reply

I apologize for that article I wrote "how to swallow a human whole". I know that it was deleted for good reasons. I was just joking around and did not intend it for any injury of death purposes. I will try to write more helpful articles in the future.

Hi Bob,

I see. I read the policy and have a question: while reading an article, I see a claim that I believe should be sourced. If my edit consists only of adding a reference for that claim, will it be reverted? Such an edit sounds like a useful change to me, but I come from a Wikipedia background (

Hey, are you using the new RC patrol?

At 01:53, Feb 25, 2010

Eric-WEric Wester said:

Haha! Yeah, I think it's a bit sketchy with IE.

Too bad you don't use Firefox, because you are certainly a power patroller that could probably provide some good feedback. I have been using it tonight, but it's throwing me for a couple loops. I think there's still a bit more work to be done before it will replace our "old" system of patrolling.

At 02:11, Feb 25, 2010

Eric-WEric Wester said:

Yes, I think it will help us get recent changes under control. As with any new feature, I think it will spark some new interest in patrolling recent changes, simply because a new tool has been introduced. Travis is a smart guy, and I am sure he will get the bugs worked out in no time.

In addition to being a great patroller, you're also a stellar author, and a tremendous asset to wikiHow. I certainly understand where patrolling recent changes can take away from other things, but it's also great to keep the site looking nice. Oh, and accurate. =)

On a lighter note, there is no escaping wikiHow. I planned to leave and not post here again. But like a bad penny, I keep returning...wikiHow may have its warts but then there plenty of nice people like you.

Hey Bob,

That's a bit perplexing. I tried the heavy-handed approach of just copying the old text to the new article, but it just gives me an edit conflict. I suspect that the problem is related to the data center migration that Travis did Wednesday night; I know there were a few hiccups during that time. I'll file a bug and ask him if he can help.


At 15:04, Mar 05, 2010

Actually... I was able to fix it by deleting it and then restoring it again. Much better than needing Travis' help right now - he's had his hands full lately.

There is a strong case the user above: World of warcraft :) is actually Allymen, who was blocked yesterday for 3 days. I posted the details on the admin notice board. The summary of the case is:

(a) The new user appeared immediately after Allymen was blocked. (b) He reacted aggressively to the suggestion of a connection. (c) He claimed to be Allymen's best friend. (d) He also tried to block me himself. (e) He managed to grasp the use of templates amazingly quickly for a new user.

Hi, I'd like to first of thank you for your work on RC patrol. However, I came across this revert, and I don't understand why my edit was reverted. Half of the sentence was just chopped off so now it's incomplete, and I was just fixing it. I don't want to get into a revert war or anything, so I figured I'd better ask.

At 01:21, Mar 16, 2010

Knu94Katie said:

No worries, I usually make about 3-5 mistakes or so (if I'm lucky) on RC patrol everyday. I was hesitant to revert the edit at first because I saw it was Jack who originally changed it, but when I looked a little closer, I noticed the sentence was actually cut off. That pretty much taught me the lesson of it doesn't matter how reliable the editor is, you should still look at what they edited. Anyway, I'm rambling now, sorry. Thanks for taking a closer look at this issue, and thanks for your continued contributions to the site!
