Request[edit]

Hi, can you create 2021 to redirect to Now(now that it is 2021, in every timezone)? I can't due to my sanction, which is a mainspace ban from everything except geography/hurricanes/interstates. --Gale5050 complain about me! 20:24, 1 January 2021 (UTC)

K, good idea. MrX blow me 04:32, 2 January 2021 (UTC)

Please contribute to Baked Potato[edit]

Trying to get a new featured article to end the 12 nights of potato. It is Baked Potato. Please contribute in whatever way you like (be bold, add new sections, change text, add images). Would like to get it featured as rapidly as possible. ShabiDOO 23:10, 1 January 2021 (UTC)

Hey Shabidoo, I'll take a look shortly and see if I have any ideas to contribute. It's pretty good so far. MrX blow me 04:34, 2 January 2021 (UTC)
So I made a few semi-funny changes. I’ll try to take another look soon and maybe add some more. MrX blow me 05:07, 2 January 2021 (UTC)
No they were great changes. Thanks a lot for helping us whip out a featured article in two days! ShabiDOO 12:44, 3 January 2021 (UTC)

HALL OF SHAME[edit]

Congratulations you've made it into the hall of shame! I've created an entry for you here. With three of your own features and two collabs you have 4 featured articles. All you need to do now is feature 37 more articles are you'll be in the top 10. You can do it! ShabiDOO 12:47, 3 January 2021 (UTC)

Thanks! My contribution to Baked Potato was kinda small but I appreciate everything! MrX blow me 15:14, 3 January 2021 (UTC)

Random character[edit]

If you weren't aware, the reason the random character wasn't working was because you had to purge the page to get a new character. JJP...MASTER![talk to] JJP... master? 22:03, 8 January 2021 (UTC)

@JJPMaster: Ah of course, thanks! Wait, how do I purge a page? MrX blow me 22:11, 8 January 2021 (UTC)
MrX, The way I do it is by using a gadget that you can enable by going to Special:Preferences#mw-prefsection-gadgets and checking "Add a clock in the personal toolbar that displays the current time in UTC. Also provides a link to purge the current page." and clicking said clock. JJP...MASTER![talk to] JJP... master? 22:13, 8 January 2021 (UTC)
Awesome, thanks again! MrX blow me 22:37, 8 January 2021 (UTC)

cool JJP...MASTER![talk to] JJP... master? 18:23, 9 January 2021 (UTC)
Lol indeed. Maybe I recently reverted their edit or something. MrX blow me 19:11, 9 January 2021 (UTC)
MrX, well, this was their first and only edit, so... JJP...MASTER![talk to] JJP... master? 23:52, 9 January 2021 (UTC)
True, though maybe their ip changes or maybe they sometimes use an account or who knows? MrX blow me 04:29, 10 January 2021 (UTC)
CU time? JJP...MASTER![talk to] JJP... master? 17:50, 11 January 2021 (UTC)
No, not even close. This really doesn't matter lol. MrX blow me 17:04, 12 January 2021 (UTC)

FYI[edit]

I left a comment at UN: BP. Might be worth replying to. --Gale5050 complain about me! And see my Wikipedia contributions! 02:06, 15 January 2021 (UTC)

I would have replied here (well, I guess I am, but my reply would've been slightly different), because the rules on BP say not to babble, since it's not a discussion page. That's why I didn't post any diffs there. Again, read. I see Kev left you a warning. I hope that will work, and I hope you get the message. Take care. MrX blow me 03:57, 15 January 2021 (UTC)

You've got mail[edit]

Hey @Kev: thanks for helping out with all this. One quick thing, you are joking about the edit summaries, right? You do realize that Gale5050 was just looking for a petty reason to criticize me, right? For example, at the time I'm writing this, if you click on my contributions and look at my past 50 edits, you'll see I used an edit summary in 11 of them, Gale5050 has 12.
I'm sorry you feel I'm being too harsh with Gale5050. Just in case you're not aware (I know you do an excellent, thorough job with everything here, but just in case), Gale5050 has been a problem that Zombiebaron and I (among others) have been dealing with since last August, when on his second day here he started trying to clean things up and remove cussing from a variety of pages, including at least one Uncyc policy/information page and my own user page. If you look through his talk page history, you'll see that on many occasions I was very kind and encouraging with Gale5050. My problem with him isn't just his bad reverts and VFDs, but mainly the way he deals with other people here. As you can see from our recent discussion on his talk page, I pointed out a clear and undeniable mistake he made. Rather than simply acknowledge the mistake, he refused to listen (again) and tried to bring up irrelevant stuff (again). You've said that Gale5050 seems to be here with good intentions. I respectfully disagree. I believe Gale5050 is here because of his obsession with Wikipedia, and he views Uncyclopedia as a Wikipedia-lite to use until he gets back on Wikipedia one way or another. I do not believe he cares about us, which is why the last time he was able to return to editing Wikipedia, he changed his user page to say "I am basically retired. I will rarely dip in. I have better things to do."
As for the recent sanctions and warning, well, Gale5050 was just warned 3 days ago, and he started violating his sanctions less than 24 hours after acknowledging them the first time last September, so I remain doubtful (but hopeful) that this will be effective. Above all else, I respect your decision and thank you again for all your help.
You have a good day too, and may Sophia bless you as well, my friend. MrX blow me 23:04, 18 January 2021 (UTC)
I hope it works too. I usually always try to go as light as possible, unless absolutely necessary. That's why I specifically chose to prevent Gale from being able to perform "negative" actions (e.g. deletion, rollback) minus within a few specific circumstances; it's to force 'em to do more "positive" actions (e.g. writing new articles). If it doesn't work, please let me know on my talk page and I'll try my best to resolve everything. β€”Kevπ”Žπ”’π”³β €α  11:55pm  January 18, 2021
Who is Sophia anyway? --Gale5050 complain about me! And see my Wikipedia contributions! 23:56, 18 January 2021 (UTC)
Sophia is a goddess who sometimes graces us on Earth as Sophia Loren, the most underrated actress ever. Praise Sophia is the fifth and by far the most important of Uncyc's five pliers. MrX blow me 00:01, 19 January 2021 (UTC)
Ah, ok. I read wp: wp: 5P but forgot to read UN: 5P. --Gale5050 complain about me! And see my Wikipedia contributions! 00:34, 19 January 2021 (UTC)

Speaking of edit summaries, your revert on Albania did not use any. When it would have been required. Also, you didn't follow up your revert with a warning, I have now done it. Keep in mind uw-vandalism1 is different format then the other templates. --Gale5050 complain about me! And see my Wikipedia contributions! 14:55, 24 January 2021 (UTC)

No, Gale5050, you're wrong again. That kind of revert does not require an edit summary, because it's obvious what I was doing. As for following up the revert with a warning, I pretty much never do that when the editor is an IP with only one edit, because it's usually a waste of time. Please stop telling other people they've made mistakes when they haven't, it's very disruptive. MrX blow me 15:19, 24 January 2021 (UTC)
The first was a test edit, no harm in saying "Rv test edit", and relating to the warnings, it's not pointless because while IPs change, some are static. It's worth spending 10 minutes to see if its static or dynamic, and you'll evantually become a pro at it ;). --Gale5050 complain about me! And see my Wikipedia contributions! 15:44, 24 January 2021 (UTC)
Gale5050, you're missing the point, again. Stop telling me I've made a mistake when I haven't. Stop telling me that edit summaries are required in situations where they aren't. You were using edit summaries much less frequently before January 18. It's obvious to everyone that your complaints about edit summaries are just petty bullshit in retaliation to me for bringing your disruption to the admins. MrX blow me 20:22, 24 January 2021 (UTC)

New message[edit]

understood 96.237.136.152 (talk) 18:41, 19 January 2021 (UTC)

You've got mail (again!)[edit]

Hi MrX! I've just applied a set of broad sanctions on Gale5050. See User talk:Kev/Gale5050 sanctions for details. If you see any further noncompliance, please tell me; I have included a special clause stating that if a non-admin user (such as you) brings any issue concerning Gale5050 to me, block lengths are doubled. I'm also sorry if I disappointed you by not blocking the aforementioned user for a more extended amount of time; however, I hope the block-report clause will make up for it, if necessary. Quoting an admin speaking in #admin-chat, "$10 bucks says Gale5050 will get banned forever within the next 3 months". β€”Kevπ”Žπ”’π”³β €α  01:30am  January 25, 2021

Hey Kev, no I’m not disappointed, rather pleased that the new restrictions include long overdue specifications for bans. Thanks again. MrX blow me 01:33, 25 January 2021 (UTC)
Very big thanks for that too! ShabiDOO 12:40, 25 January 2021 (UTC)
