Attention trolls: Don't bother me here. I am busy impersonating Rome Viharo on Metapedia.


I noticed you took down some of the quotes I added to some pages. I don't have a problem with that at all, but is there any chance I could add them back if I include a proper citation? I figured I should ask before I do anything. BJA2112 (talk) 04:24, 28 February 2024 (UTC)

With quality citations, yes, if the quote bears relevance to the article. Quotes from fiction (from Hamilton, the musical or from games), generally not unless it's about the fiction in question. Bongolian (talk) 05:21, 28 February 2024 (UTC)
So I can't add quotes from fiction to pages at all? I just want to be doubly sure, because there are other quotes from fiction on other pages that I didn't add. I mean, I will absolutely abide by that if you say so, I just want to be sure. I also want to make it clear that I'm not trying to start a fight or complain or anything. BJA2112 (talk) 06:05, 28 February 2024 (UTC)
You had a quote attributed that you attributed to Burr, but it was from the Hamilton musical. The other fiction quotes that I saw that you had added seemed rather tangential or obscure. Bongolian (talk) 08:14, 28 February 2024 (UTC)
I thought I'd stated as such it was fr the musical, but I guess I didn't. So if the fiction in question is more well known/mainstream, it's okay? Again, not trying to start a fight or complain or be a troublemaker or anything, I just want to be absolutely 100% regarding possible future edits. BJA2112 (talk) 08:19, 28 February 2024 (UTC)
It is just confusing having fictitious quotes in articles that are supposed to be factual. Bongolian (talk) 08:21, 28 February 2024 (UTC)
So no more fictional quotes? Again, just to me absolutely sure. Also, I hope I'm not coming off as sounding stupid or anything, I just want to be absolutely sure so I can keep it in mind for future edits. BJA2112 (talk) 09:46, 28 February 2024 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────If you're so keen on adding them, it's best to ask a sysop or mod. It doesn't have to be me. Bongolian (talk) 18:35, 28 February 2024 (UTC)

Caught a vandal red-handed.[edit]

I just rollbacked blatant vandalism from some schmuck calling themselves "thebraveone" at the Alan Watt article. They also appear to have already made a backup account, as if we wouldn't notice two accounts with very similar names being created and making trouble at the same time. Where's a facepalm emoji when you need one?! --Luigifan18 (talk) 14:27, 1 March 2024 (UTC)

I gave them a short block for first offense. Bongolian (talk) 17:46, 1 March 2024 (UTC)

Quotes (again)[edit]

Hey, I hope I've been cooperative enough will everything you and the other mods have told me regarding quotes on pages so far. I like to think I've been doing a better job of it so far. Also for the future, if I think a fictional quote would fit for a certain page, I'll make sure to ask someone first. BJA2112 (talk) 23:38, 3 March 2024 (UTC)

Yes, from what I've seen so far. Thank you. Bongolian (talk) 00:35, 4 March 2024 (UTC)

Cats on sandbox[edit]

Hi, @Bongolian! I have noticed that your page User:Bongolian/Test2 appears on the homepage in the category of Creationism. After some research I was told that this is not supposed to happen and that sandbox pages should de-cat their content. I do not know how else to say it, so I will just kindly ask you to remove the categories. :) I am new to the wiki so I can't know for certain if what I am saying is correct - if you believe that what you are doing is correct and should remain unchanged, feel free to disregard this notice. ULTRACOMFY (talk) 11:35, 17 March 2024 (UTC)

Thanks, I had forgotten that page was still there. I've deleted it since I no longer need it. Bongolian (talk) 16:43, 17 March 2024 (UTC)


So, we just got a new user by the name of "SenõrChismeOléOléOlé". Isn't "Ole Ole Ole" how Ken ends a lot of his weird rants? Who does he think he's kidding?!? --Luigifan18 (talk) 04:56, 14 April 2024 (UTC)

I don't know. It used to be on the list of block reasons, but it was a mystery to me as to why. Bongolian (talk) 07:25, 14 April 2024 (UTC)
