Comment[edit]

I'd like to answer your question but you have forbade me from communicating with you. 331dot (talk) 16:28, 13 October 2021 (UTC)[]

331dot Well this is a paradoxical post then. The Rambling Man (Keep wearing the mask...) 16:29, 13 October 2021 (UTC)[]
Per WP:BANEX I am "Engaging in legitimate and necessary dispute resolution" to inquire as to if you want to hear my answer or if I am still forbidden from talking to you. 331dot (talk) 16:32, 13 October 2021 (UTC)[]
This isn't "necessary" by any means. As an admin, you should know that debate at ITN isn't "necessary" in any sense, particularly when it's related to Captain Kirk going to "space" for a minute or two. But, on this momentous occasion, I'm happy to allow the debate. The Rambling Man (Keep wearing the mask...) 16:34, 13 October 2021 (UTC)[]
Thank you. I just wanted to say I consider this an exception and I will continue to respect your wishes with this. 331dot (talk) 16:46, 13 October 2021 (UTC)[]
331dot look, it's been a long and hard few months. I'm more than happy to drop my feisty demand if you'd be good enough to just carry on regardless? The Rambling Man (Keep wearing the mask...) 16:47, 13 October 2021 (UTC)[]
I will keep this in mind but work to not abuse it by responding to everything you say(which is on me not you). 331dot (talk) 16:51, 13 October 2021 (UTC)[]
331dot It's fine. If the last 18 months has taught me anything, it's that grudge-bearing is a waste of time. Please feel free to be yourself, and I'm sorry if my feisty bad temper has affected you. All the best. The Rambling Man (Keep wearing the mask...) 16:54, 13 October 2021 (UTC)[]
I will close by saying I accept my responsibility with this. Please be safe. 331dot (talk) 17:01, 13 October 2021 (UTC)[]
And my very best wishes to you and all you hold dear. The Rambling Man (Keep wearing the mask...) 17:03, 13 October 2021 (UTC)[]

James Longstreet FAC[edit]

It had been four days from when you last posted to when the article was promoted. You had made clear already that you didn't intend to support the article. If you were willing to change your mind, you had plenty of time to say so. But you never left any indication that you had anything more to say. Now that the coordinator has decided to promote the article, I don't think that you have the right to stop it just because you've now decided you want to do some more reviewing. If you have any further comments, please ping me on the article's talk page. Display name 99 (talk) 23:14, 13 October 2021 (UTC) And just because an article has opposition doesn't mean it can't be promoted. A coordinator can still decide to promote an article that has an oppose vote if there are enough supports and if in the coordinator's judgment the nominator has responded to reviewers' queries adequately. Display name 99 (talk) 23:17, 13 October 2021 (UTC)[]

Display name 99 Nah, don't be silly. I oppose the promotion, I wasn't given a chance to fix it, desist from your current path, honestly. The Rambling Man (Keep wearing the mask...) 23:18, 13 October 2021 (UTC)[]

Hey, if you have already noticed it then ignore this message, but since I know that pings can get buried easily I just wanted to leave you an additional message here that I have addressed the comments you've left so far on my FAC. Thanks, TheDoctorWho (talk) 22:38, 16 October 2021 (UTC)[]

Gills FAC[edit]

Hi TRM, hope you are well. If you had any spare time over the weekend, just wondering whether you might be able to cast your critical eye over my latest Gills FAC? If not, not to worry. All the best, ChrisTheDude (talk) 07:34, 23 October 2021 (UTC)[]

Hi Chris, I noticed it near the top of the FAC listings, happy to take a look, may be a couple of days before I get a chance, but certainly will do. The Rambling Man (Keep wearing the mask...) 09:04, 23 October 2021 (UTC)[]

Ohconfucius/dashes.js[edit]

I see you are using Ohconfucius/dashes.js or GregU/dashes.js. Please review your edits before you press save. It does this and turns the UTC time from a blue link to a red one. Thanks. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Huliva 16:45, 23 October 2021 (UTC)[]

Cheers, have a great evening! The Rambling Man (Keep wearing the mask...) 21:04, 23 October 2021 (UTC)[]
CambridgeBayWeather and by all means, let those script editors know your grievances. It would probably benefit Wikipedia! Cheers. The Rambling Man (Keep wearing the mask...) 21:28, 23 October 2021 (UTC)[]
