I think he protected the page because of a blanking that happened: [1]. I'll unprotect it for now as it's only one occurrence of vandalism. LongStylus (talk) 02:27, 16 May 2022 (UTC)

Top Gear[edit]

Hello, I saw the revert of the move of Top Gear to Jeremy Clarkson. Since Clarkson, Hammond and May's departures seven years ago, there have been 56 episodes with the presenting team consisting of Paddy McGuinness, 2019–present, Andrew Flintoff, 2019–present, Chris Harris, 2016–present, Sabine Schmitz, 2016–2020, Rory Reid, 2016–2019, Matt LeBlanc, 2016–2019, Eddie Jordan, 2016–2018, Chris Evans, 2016. The controversial aspects are very much associated with Clarkson (and not limited to the views he expressed on Top Gear) not his replacements. Can you share your thoughts on this?--Darrelljon (talk) 12:46, 15 July 2022 (UTC)

we have heard little much controversial from clarkson since leaving top gear and his controversies would likely not have made headlines at all if they did not happen on a popular prime time BBC show. aside from this some of the controversy involved scripted 'jokes' not unplanned off the cuff remarks (im thinking of the 'slope' reference.) his sidekicks and the producers were just as culpable in that regard - its not just clarkson AMassiveGay (talk) 16:12, 15 July 2022 (UTC)
@Darrelljon If you still care. Sorry, I've been sick.
Well, you could pretty much put what you wrote above on the Top Gear page. You could emphasize that the controversial days of Top Gear are long in the past now, which the page hints at already. And if you think there's anything on the page that's irrelevant to Top Gear, go ahead and remove it. Although I'd say that anything Clarkson said or did while he was still a Top Gear presenter is relevant. Spud (talk) 04:52, 24 July 2022 (UTC)

11 years[edit]

I got you beat by 3 years, buddy. Ace is weird wise. Acei9 08:32, 30 August 2022 (UTC)

@Ace McWicked Yeah. I know the real old guard still see me as a Johnny-come-lately. I am resigned to that. Spud (talk) 12:49, 30 August 2022 (UTC)
@Bob M has me beat by a little under a year though. Acei9 18:08, 30 August 2022 (UTC)
Bloody newbies. I remember when this was all fields.Bob"Life is short and (insert adjective)" 14:04, 31 August 2022 (UTC)
The other place has 10, 15 and 20 year clubs. Anna Livia (talk) 22:52, 31 August 2022 (UTC)
@Anna Livia I know. I'm a member of the Ten Year Society and the Fifteen Year Society over there. Spud (talk) 02:05, 1 September 2022 (UTC)
Ditto. The ranks by timeframe and number of edits seem to much like hard work/involve more time on WP than I wish to spend. Anna Livia (talk) 18:11, 2 September 2022 (UTC)
@Anna Livia I'm also a Veteran Editor II or Grand Tutnum for having made 12,000 edits. Although it did take me nearly 16 years to do that. Spud (talk) 10:00, 3 September 2022 (UTC)

Ban Evasion: Fuck You![edit]

$100 says Ken is furiously writing an "essay" about how the atheist who goes by the moniker Ace McWicked says "there is no god" because he thinks he died. News to you Ace! Death is permanent! I declare victory once more! Now see these pictures with captions...but over 3 pages of meandering irrelevant gibberish. Acei9 03:06, 31 August 2022 (UTC)

@Ace McWicked Of course! And he might even say something about how the atheist known as Spud used crude language while banning innocent Christians who were not ban evading, were making good points in the Saloon Bar and were most definitely not Ken, no siree! Spud (talk) 12:05, 31 August 2022 (UTC)
I'm not going to link to it because it's just the same old rubbish but you owe me $100. Acei9 18:18, 31 August 2022 (UTC)
I think Ace and Ken are working in cahoots. They're going to split Spud's $100 50/50. --RWRW (talk) 19:50, 31 August 2022 (UTC)
He probably needs it too. I get the sense he couldn't even fund a trip to the zoo. Acei9 20:46, 31 August 2022 (UTC)
