Uh… thanks! Rational Dude (talk) 05:29, 12 November 2021 (UTC)

Your drafts[edit]

You should try to create drafts with substantial content first, and try to keep the drafts you make to a minimum. I saw you created several drafts with barely any content, Draft:Adam Friended, Draft:George Alexopoulos, Draft:Holocene Extinction (most substantial one by a bit but still not acceptable), Draft:Literature Devil, Draft:PSA Sitch, Draft:Just a Robot, Draft:George Alexopoulos; most are YouTubers where we have little idea about their clout. Try to be choosy about the YouTubers you decide to cover as well. Formatting might be an issue you have, but be sure to prioritize content and we can help you with the formatting later. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario!(Mod) 05:49, 3 December 2021 (UTC)

Alright, I will. Thank you. Most of these people were on the webshite lists, as seen here: Rational Dude (talk) 12:47, 6 December 2021 (UTC)


It really would be a good idea it you did it on talk pages. You do it by adding a colon in front of your reply. if it is a reply to a reply then you add two colons and so on. You should only really not use colons if you are changing the subject somewhat. You can practice in reply to this comment if you like.Bob"Life is short and (insert adjective)" 15:32, 23 December 2022 (UTC)

Sure thing, I’ve got it. Thanks for the advice.
Also, I’d like to apologize if it seemed like I was trying to start an argument on the topic discussion. I was confused, and I’m kinda passionate about this issue (extinction to be precise). Plus, I’m just more used to the Wikipedia terms.

No probs. It's also a good idea to put your sig directly after you comments. Otherwise you can see what happens above. Using "show preview" before "save" is also wise. (We were all newbies once).Bob"Life is short and (insert adjective)" 20:02, 23 December 2022 (UTC)
Of course, I’ll do my best to remember. Thank you.

Rational Dude (talk) 20:21, 23 December 2022 (UTC)

OK. Except you didn't. You really should put your sig just after the full stop. Otherwise it starts a new line - as you can see.Bob"Life is short and (insert adjective)" 20:25, 23 December 2022 (UTC)
Oh, that's what you meant. Whoops.Rational Dude (talk) 23:05, 23 December 2022 (UTC)

Excessive categories[edit]

Stop adding categories on pages when the page has no content whatsoever to justify it. Your activity on doing this is excessive. Bongolian (talk) 23:23, 4 February 2023 (UTC)

What do you mean pages without content? What pages are you referring to, mainspace pages or drafts? Rational Dude (talk) 23:24, 4 February 2023 (UTC)
You like to add categories when the page has no text justifying the presence of said category. That's what he means. Besides, just adding categories is a low value activity anyways. Pizza SLICE.gifChef Moosolini’s Ristorante ItalianoMake a Reservation 13:32, 5 February 2023 (UTC)
Oh, you mean adding categories to pages that might not justify it. I was so confused at first, I thought you were talking about blank pages.
Don’t worry, I won’t add any unjustified categories to pages again, it’s just a habit I have from Wikipedia and Fandom that I’m used to. Rational Dude (talk) 16:02, 5 February 2023 (UTC)
