Whee, you learn quick! I was about to use the {{wpl}} on that Carnegie ref, but you beat me to it. Sprocket J Cogswell (talk) 22:19, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

Well, if you're new to a place, there's no reason not to read the newcomers' page, and reading that page, I saw that formatting thing, so I had a duty to change it. No biggie. Thanos6 (talk) 22:23, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
Cool beans, and thanks again. If sometime you happen to find a more direct link to an outside source, that'd be even better. Some folks around here get an itchy trigger finger when they see a Wikipedia link. For me it's no biggie, but I can't speak for the whole mob. Sprocket J Cogswell (talk) 22:39, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
I looked through the Wikipedia source list and all the sources seemed to support one side or the other; ironically, at the moment Wikipedia seems to be the most neutral collation of information on the subject, or at least that I could find. Thanos6 (talk) 22:43, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
Ah, OK then. Makes perfect sense. Carry on... Sprocket J Cogswell (talk) 22:49, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

Sorry to say[edit]

You are now one of the janitorial crew here. Don't go mixing the bleach with the ammonia, or we will all suffer. Sprocket J Cogswell (talk) 11:46, 17 July 2014 (UTC)

Haha, well it doesn't look like it'll be as much fun as my long career of being a moderator and administrator at message boards, but I appreciate the honor all the same. Thanos6 (talk) 11:53, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
Heh. You may think of it as an honor, if you like. Nice to see you've had relevant experience. The culture here seems to favor swatting vandals gently at first. Sprocket J Cogswell (talk) 12:00, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
Yes, so I see. Personally, I'll admit to being more of the "tough on crime" type myself (including vandalism, trolling, etc.), but I don't get to make the rules here, so once I get comfortable enough to start banning, I'll force my personal instincts/beliefs back and use the mini-bans. :) Thanos6 (talk) 12:09, 17 July 2014 (UTC)


You beat me to the story. I was about to post it under the headline "Troubling Transgender Tarheel Toilet Treatment Transgresses Title IX". Oh well.ℕoir LeSable (talk) 21:33, 4 May 2016 (UTC)
