Is it OK[edit]

If people edit your drafts? RoninMacbeth (talk) 12:51, 19 June 2018 (UTC)

RoninMacbeth It sure is, they are only drafts because I don't consider them finished enough to have in mainspace yet. Add whatever you like. Dysklyver (talk) 13:28, 19 June 2018 (UTC)

Dear Dysklyver,

No questions are allowed. If you have any further questions, (further questions are permissible) please refer to the enclosed pamphlet So you are now a sysop.

At your leisure, please go to the dungeon Room 202 to see the reward mops and hammers you can work towards having!

So... why are you so blocked from Wikimedia projects?[edit]

Is it just because you socked a lot? —Kazitor Kazitor sig pic.png 01:27, 20 July 2018 (UTC)

I stood for their Arbcom election. Got blocked. Evaded with a new account. Got banned. Evaded that with a succession of accounts. Got globally locked. ^_^ This message is approved by Dysklyver Gears.png Ensign of the Duke of Cornwall.svg (brebmyn) 08:31, 20 July 2018 (UTC)
I don't hang around Wikipedia, but... is "Arbcom" the arbitration committee? What does that actually do, and why were you blocked the first time? Just curious. —Kazitor Kazitor sig pic.png 10:59, 20 July 2018 (UTC)
The Arbitration Committee is sort of a coop/mods combi. See Wikipedia:Wikipedia:Arbitration Committee. I got blocked because well, this:
Stop icon
You have been blocked indefinitely from editing per the consensus and your own consent here.
After 6 months you can apply for the block to be lifted, please read the guide to appealing blocks, then add the following text below the block notice on your talk page: {{unblock|reason=Your reason here ~~~~}}.
This was of course later replaced with a ban. ^_^ This message is approved by Dysklyver Gears.png Ensign of the Duke of Cornwall.svg (brebmyn) 11:37, 20 July 2018 (UTC)
There's so much bureaucracy there I can hardly make out what the issue is... is it just that you were doing some things they didn't like? Regardless, just try not to cause trouble around here eh? —Kazitor Kazitor sig pic.png 11:45, 20 July 2018 (UTC)
The nub of the issue is basically that some topics are sacred. (I nominated some biscuits for deletion and some administrators did not approve). It is amazing how much bureaucracy it took to get rid of me from that point onwards. Made much harder by the whole Arbcom election bureaucracy, and the ongoing attempt to out-wikilawyer a lawyer. ^_^ This message is approved by Dysklyver Gears.png Ensign of the Duke of Cornwall.svg (brebmyn) 12:28, 20 July 2018 (UTC)

Indent your first replies[edit]

Multiple times now, you've responded to a post without indenting. You know how to do it, so do it please :) —Kazitor Kazitor sig pic.png 12:31, 22 July 2018 (UTC)

Do not encourage vandalism[edit]

Unless it is a link to your account, you should remove the "Click here to vandalise!!!" link on your user page. CowHouse (talk) 04:22, 4 August 2018 (UTC)

Hey little buddies![edit]

@Kingdamian1 I'm still waiting for that Florida Department of Agriculture to come and get me at the Miami airport that you think I'm located at! I'm sitting here in my boiler room watching Dexter, waiting for Adam Putnam's swat team to take me down. Fucktards.... ZombiesRComing (talk) 21:19, 6 August 2018 (UTC)

Yeah I gave up on that when I realized that Miami was the wrong place. Chill. ^_^ This message is approved by Dysklyver Gears.png Ensign of the Duke of Cornwall.svg (brebmyn) 22:13, 6 August 2018 (UTC)

Tables are bad[edit]

Not the colours so much, but if it all works properly I see no reason I couldn't push your mockup to the actual main page. Death to table-based layout! —Kazitor Kazitor sig pic.png 05:37, 14 September 2018 (UTC)

@Kazitor It should all work, most of it is inspired by the main page at Wikipedia and various portals I did there. ^_^ This message is approved by Dysklyver Gears.png Ensign of the Duke of Cornwall.svg (brebmyn) 10:09, 14 September 2018 (UTC)

Nominating everyone ain't great[edit]

I know free and fair elections, but you should seriously only nominate people you would be okay with modding you. I can't take words from your mouth, or deny you the chance to pick users you personally feel are appropriate, but I caution against your choice. ikanreed 🐐Bleat at me 21:24, 1 November 2018 (UTC)

Ha! Well you never know, the good candidates might forget to accept the nominations and let... well I did try and pick a fair representation of loons... um, better make sure the most sensible candidates are running eh. ^_^ This message is approved by Dysklyver Gears.png Ensign of the Duke of Cornwall.svg (brebmyn) 02:57, 2 November 2018 (UTC)
"a fair representation of loons" I hope I'm not considered to be one of these loons :p --RWRW (talk) 03:03, 2 November 2018 (UTC)
I was on the fence until I saw your propaganda, really the main loon category includes "Fake news", the Grand RW Judge (who my have problem accepting the nomination due to being blocked) and my sockpuppet, etc. ^_^ This message is approved by Dysklyver Gears.png Ensign of the Duke of Cornwall.svg (brebmyn) 03:07, 2 November 2018 (UTC)
You should also inform nominees on their talk page with {{modnotice}} CowHouse (talk) 03:04, 2 November 2018 (UTC)
ya, will do. ^_^ This message is approved by Dysklyver Gears.png Ensign of the Duke of Cornwall.svg (brebmyn) 03:07, 2 November 2018 (UTC)
Done. Although it might seem like a nominated everyone, I really haven't and there is still room to seek out and nominate a few more. ^_^ This message is approved by Dysklyver Gears.png Ensign of the Duke of Cornwall.svg (brebmyn)

I already know...[edit]

... About my nomination. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 03:21, 2 November 2018 (UTC)

A word of Thanks[edit]

I want to thank you for nominating me for a moderator spot in the election. I don't know where you place me on the spectrum between the competent and the catastrophic, nevertheless I quite enjoyed the mention. Thanks again, Ariel31459 (talk) 02:33, 19 November 2018 (UTC)

Award[edit]

HardWork.jpg Tireless Worker Award
For ingenuity beyond the call of duty
Dysklyver
For overseeing the 2001 moderator elections.

Thanks, Cosmikdebris (talk) 00:33, 27 November 2018 (UTC)

Seconded. And for your work overseeing the RMF board election. --RWRW (talk) 00:49, 27 November 2018 (UTC)
Hey thanks :) Also good to see the time travel going on here :D ^_^ This message is approved by Dysklyver Gears.png Ensign of the Duke of Cornwall.svg (brebmyn) 10:10, 27 November 2018 (UTC)
And just for looking into the possibility of making the Hoydaze templates timezoe sensitive, I think I owe you this. And, of course, thanks for everything you're doing on that other wiki. Spud (talk) 12:25, 27 November 2018 (UTC)

My Essay[edit]

Hi there Dysklyver thanks for adding to my essay. You wrote basically exactly what I would have said.Doublethink (talk) 03:18, 28 November 2018 (UTC)

Why did you revert my topic?[edit]

That was rude. 68.0.189.224 (talk) 00:45, 29 November 2018 (UTC)

Reversion of comment on Tech Support page[edit]

Seriously, what the hell? Was it a mistake?--Don Juan (talk) 16:03, 4 December 2018 (UTC)

Oh, shit. Brain fart on my part. Just saw the edit summary. Still, I recommend keeping the [redacted] in place with auto[redacted] enabled.--Don Juan (talk) 16:06, 4 December 2018 (UTC)
Yes no worries. The best thing would probably be to rewrite the comment minus the bit I was complaining about. ^_^ This message is approved by Dysklyver Gears.png Ensign of the Duke of Cornwall.svg (brebmyn) 16:07, 4 December 2018 (UTC)

"DazzlingDove"[edit]

Harrassment no. Ban evasion and trolling yes. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 18:09, 17 December 2018 (UTC)

Harassment yes, crosswiki. See wikipedia:User:JaySmith2018, wikipedia:simple:User:Vermont/Reports/JRS, wikipedia:Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/JaySmith2018/Archive etc. Affected users are registered here. ^_^ This message is approved by Dysklyver Gears.png Ensign of the Duke of Cornwall.svg (brebmyn) 18:21, 17 December 2018 (UTC)
Activity in other wikis don't qualify. Focus the scope on this wiki. Permaban is inappropriate. --It's-a me, 🎄LeftyGreenMario!🎄(Mod) 20:35, 17 December 2018 (UTC)
this is one of their esteemed contributions to this wiki earlier. I have unblocked, but am completely convinced they will be a complete pain in the proverbials and be permabanned by someone else for something else later, as they have before. Indeed I am pretty certain the only reason they are here is as a wind-up... ^_^ This message is approved by Dysklyver Gears.png Ensign of the Duke of Cornwall.svg (brebmyn) 20:57, 17 December 2018 (UTC)
I would agree to a short-term block. Three days block is fine for me, and the user can spend the rest of its numbered days in the vandal bin. --It's-a me, 🎄LeftyGreenMario!🎄(Mod) 23:20, 17 December 2018 (UTC)
