Unblock request[edit]

Can someone please change my username to "LongStylus" (without quotation marks)? I got a welcome message by an admin and autopatrolled by another, so I did not expect my username to be an issue. However, now I understand that the username is inappropriate and puerile. I wish to continue to contribute using this account as I have made good-faith contributions in the past. It would be nice if I can keep all of my edits under one account rather than splitting them off into two separate accounts. Thanks. CoagulatedEjaculate (talk) 23:45, 9 July 2021 (UTC)

You should make the request here, in case no tech or mod notices this on your talk page. Knight CommanderIn ServiceTo HerGoatness 03:48, 10 July 2021 (UTC)
I have renamed you as requested. Bongolian (talk) 04:03, 10 July 2021 (UTC)
No offence was intended on my part. Anna Livia (talk) 18:40, 11 July 2021 (UTC)
@Bongolian Thank you for the rename.
@Anna Livia I understand that my former username was offensive to you. Now that I've got renamed, I hope we can continue to work together cordially in the future. LongStylus (talk) 06:06, 1 August 2021 (UTC)
Such user names tend to attract blocks from 'any passing user' (but I have come across some 'weird user names' on my travels through the contributory websites). Anna Livia (talk) 12:51, 2 August 2021 (UTC)

Suppression policy[edit]

Hey, I appreciate your work on cleaning up vandals and trolls! Just a quick thing though; revision suppression is only meant to be used in very limited circumstances, not just for offensive edits alone. To quote the policy (as it is listed on the suppression page):

Suppression should only be used for the following cases:

  • potentially libelous information
  • inappropriate personal information

Edits like these and these for example don't have to be hidden and should just be reverted. -- Techpriest (talk) 22:57, 7 December 2021 (UTC)

Got it. Thank you for cleaning up too. LongStylus (talk) 22:59, 7 December 2021 (UTC)
Sorry, it's on me for starting that. I did suppression just to remove disruptive text the troll wants to use to draw attention to itself. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario!(Mod) 23:38, 7 December 2021 (UTC)
Right! I started doing suppression because I saw LGM doing it and thought it made sense. Since it was against the suppression policy, I apologize for that and won't do it again. But it seems that LGM has continued doing it, so maybe we should discuss about this further. LongStylus (talk) 04:27, 8 December 2021 (UTC)

Blocking policy[edit]

Please review our blocking policy (RationalWiki:Blocking policy). Generally, we block IP addresses for at most pi days unless there is a recurring problem. Thank you. Bongolian (talk) 19:00, 12 December 2021 (UTC)

I did read the blocking policy, and yes, it is a recurring problem. LongStylus (talk) 19:03, 12 December 2021 (UTC)
It is, but these are one off IPs that appear to be dynamic and will probably rotate to another house by the time it finishes. It is recurring but what I think Bongo means is behind the IP. --Andrew5 (talk) 19:10, 12 December 2021 (UTC)
Thanks for trying to clarify, but I want to hear from the horse's mouth. User:Cosmikdebris did the same thing and their blocks were not changed. And why did User:Bongolian take 18 minutes in between the two block changes? LongStylus (talk) 19:13, 12 December 2021 (UTC)
Idk. Tbh, Cosmikdebris should probably be told too, since his are harsher, and he's more of an aggressive blocker but I wouldn't do it myself. --Andrew5 (talk) 19:17, 12 December 2021 (UTC)
I don't usually follow the block log too closely. I only noticed the first one because it was a page that I watch. Yes, I will send a message to Cosmikdebris. Bongolian (talk) 19:23, 12 December 2021 (UTC)
Ok, thank you. I'm sorry about the improper blocks, and also for being too aggressive in this discussion. I shouldn't have made a big deal out of this, especially the 18 minute scandal. LongStylus (talk) 19:30, 12 December 2021 (UTC)

Trouted[edit]

Rainbow trout transparent.png Whack!
You've been whacked with a wet trout.

Don't take this too seriously. Somebody just wants to let you know you did something silly.

For deleting User:Bongolian, the mods userpage, but not User:Bongoriam, the trolls userpage. --Andrew5 (talk) 23:22, 30 January 2022 (UTC)

Sorry, I got the two mixed up! I restored User:Bongolian's page now. LongStylus (talk) 23:23, 30 January 2022 (UTC)


It's me[edit]

Please unblock the account. if you think it's not me message my Discord on my main's talk page. GC desysopped me without going through ATIM twice, today has been a mess. My main being resysopped would be nice too please.--3friedeggs (talk) 04:25, 10 June 2022 (UTC)

@3friedeggs I was going to unblock you, but it looks like you've already done that. Sorry about blocking you. I saw two harrassment accounts being made around the same time, so I was a bit suspicious. LongStylus (talk) 04:39, 10 June 2022 (UTC)
