I suspect you're very tired of those CAPTCHAs.-DiamondDisc1(talk) 23:19, 10 September 2017 (UTC)

  • Thanks. Since I'm new here and still a bit of a novice as to how things work on this wiki, please feel free to add and improve to any page I may make (like Mary Fallin.)

You're finally a sysop, here's more info. Christopher (talk) 16:37, 30 December 2017 (UTC)

This appears to have been premature: BJA2112 seems to be on autopilot. @Christopher. Bongolian (talk) 20:53, 31 May 2018 (UTC)
@Bongolian I agree, BJA need some evidence to back up the stuff you’re saying. This is a final warning before desysopping. Christopher (talk) 15:46, 1 June 2018 (UTC)


Hi there, BJA2112. It would be a good idea to add some text and a reference when you are adding categories for living people when the category is not supported by anything that is currently on that person's page. For example, your addition of the category Ableism for Betsy DeVos. Although I know it's true, there is nothing currently supporting that on her page. Bongolian (talk) 20:48, 28 May 2018 (UTC)

@BJA2112: You still seem to be adding categories to pages without much evidence. In the case of Jeb Bush, it did register for the draft after leaving high school at the tail end of the Vietnam War: not a good candidate for this category. Please stop adding categories to pages unless you show the evidence or it is already shown. Bongolian (talk) 18:42, 29 May 2018 (UTC)

Your edits[edit]

Please do not put categories intended for people, as you did to Ku Klux Klan. I spent a long time trying to fix that a few years ago and I don't want to redo that again. Magic Master (talk) 13:39, 19 May 2022 (UTC)

I also had to nix your page quote on Lauren Boebert because of it containing sexist language. Yes, she's an asshole, but it's still not right to use sexist language. Magic Master (talk) 06:26, 28 May 2022 (UTC)

Understood. I added the same quote on Marjorie Taylor Greene's page too; I'll remove it. BJA2112 (talk) 06:27, 28 May 2022 (UTC)

Please stop adding quotes that have no citation. It is bad behavior on your part: you're creating work for other people. The problem with quotes is that they are often inaccurate or misattributed. If you include a citation, it will make it easier for someone else to verify the quote. See Quote Investigator for why uncited quotations are a significant problem.[1] Bongolian (talk) 18:25, 2 February 2024 (UTC)

I understand. I'll try to do better on that from now on. BJA2112 (talk) 02:07, 3 February 2024 (UTC)
Thank you. Bongolian (talk) 02:08, 3 February 2024 (UTC)


I don't think we should be using Wikiquote as a source. Carthage (talk) 20:35, 13 February 2024 (UTC)

Yes, Wikiquote, like Wikipedia (or RationalWiki) can be wrong. Wikiquote can be useful for finding and verifying the original source of a quote. Bongolian (talk) 20:54, 13 February 2024 (UTC)
I found a different quote, but from a book rather than a website or news article. I couldn't find a way to properly source the book, but the book itself is real. Hope that works. BJA2112 (talk) 21:05, 13 February 2024 (UTC)


Given your recent editing I have regranted you autopatrolled. Lavalizard101 (talk) 11:16, 19 February 2024 (UTC)

If you think a category should be added to a page, make sure that there is text and a citation which confirms the category addition. Bongolian (talk) 02:53, 5 March 2024 (UTC)

You got it 👍👍👍 BJA2112 (talk) 04:02, 5 March 2024 (UTC)
