A drive-by request for some peer review[edit]

Sup Pluto? Sorry to bug ya.

I have written a new article debunking a shitty UFO doc and I thought that it would be doubleplusgood to ask for a second opinion before I yeet the thing into our precious mainspace. I chose you for this unenviable task because it was you who moved my crappy Vitamin C draft into mainspace while I was away on my wiki break, so I know you are capable of parsing the dross that slides off my keyboard. Not everyone here has such patience.

So, yeah, if you have the time could you give it a once over? Anything major that needs fixing? You don't need to have seen the movie, I meticulously transcribed the relevant scenes so that the readers know EXACTLY what I'm addressing. (Though I do kinda recommend it, it's a fun watch. I heard that it's possible to watch it while... uhm... cough cough... wearing an eyepatch and singing sea shanties, ya know? Mere gossip, I'm sure.)

Only if you have time though, and no rush. Next week or next month, whatever. (If you don't wanna, just say so, I actually have a long list of sysops I need an excuse to harass and annoy with my obnoxious shit say hello to.)

Sincerely. - Rairyu75 (Talk) 05:31, 11 January 2024 (UTC)

Edit review request[edit]

Hey, I recently undid a BoN edit at Internet Research Agency that looked like it was harming the page. However, I'm not fully confident of my judgment in this case, so I'd like a second opinion. Could you please take a look at it? --Luigifan18 (talk) 22:55, 25 February 2024 (UTC)

Header quotes[edit]

How do you feel about me using quotes from fictional material on a page if it's appropriate for/relevant to the page's content in question? BJA2112 (talk) 19:37, 29 February 2024 (UTC)

They should probably be used sparingly. In pages about concepts that are largely fictional, it may make sense to use a (adequately sourced) quote from fiction, but probably not for real-life political issues. Plutocow (talk) 20:09, 29 February 2024 (UTC)

I opened up a discussion on this on the Mod noticeboard. Bongolian (talk) 20:57, 29 February 2024 (UTC)

Mediawiki bug?[edit]

Idk, but it has been well over a minute. 2600:387:F:D16:0:0:0:6 (talk) 02:25, 3 March 2024 (UTC)

When trying to unblock, it says the block was already removed. It's likely just a visual error. Plutocow (talk) 05:26, 3 March 2024 (UTC)
Alright, I've confirmed it as a purely visual bug. The thing is, is technically blocked, as the "range" is equivalent to which is blocked due to being a ban evasion of Neiltyson1fan/Willwill0415.Wikipedia Since the two are equivalent, it treats as blocked, and since a block log exists, it displays the latest entry. I confirmed this by doing a similar one minute block on, but since Special:Contributions/|]] isn't blocked, isn't displayed as blocked and thus the block log entry doesn't show up in their contributions, while after blocking for literally zero seconds, the block log entry still shows up as is currently blocked. (Compare to, which has isn't displayed as blocked despite being blocked as the block log for is empty.) Ultimately, the "block" on will go away when the one on expires.

A case involving you has been raised at the Chicken Coop. Feel free to comment.

The Theater Principle[edit]

Hello, I reckon the latest article I've edited is ready for mainspace, could you confirm please? If so, please move it to the mainspace, I have no idea how to, instructions very vague. If otherwise, let me know what needs to be improved. Thank you.
