For protecting with no explanation[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.

Hi, I wanted to let you know that I just unprotected a recently-created draft of yours. Why did you indef-protect James Buchanan? Contrary to your rationale, I didn't see any edit-warring in the fossil record. And even if there was, we don't indef-protect things for edit-warring; that's generally a short-term protection rationale. --Goatspeed.

Hello! Sorry this is late. I couldn't figure out talk pages until now. Yes, I have no idea why I did that. Either way, it got changed back now, so that's all good. Apologies! The Curly-haired Sea AnimalHere's the "Coral Kennel"

Nice work[edit]

Nice work making us a Buchanan article. The wiki really needed it! Pizza SLICE.gifChef Moosolini’s Ristorante ItalianoMake a Reservation 14:46, 25 November 2020 (UTC)

Happy to help! Out of curiousity, is there any other notable leaders that are in need of articles? The Curly-haired Sea AnimalHere's the "Coral Kennel" 15:10, 25 November 2020 (GMT)
Lotta presidents don't have articles. Also if you wanna try taking a crack at Ho Chi Minh or Deng Xiaoping... Pizza SLICE.gifChef Moosolini’s Ristorante ItalianoMake a Reservation 16:07, 25 November 2020 (UTC)
Nice Deng article. Also, sorry about accidentally rolling back on your user page. Blame the mobile setup, not me! Pizza SLICE.gifChef Moosolini’s Ristorante ItalianoMake a Reservation 14:03, 22 April 2021 (UTC)
Ah, thanks dude. :) And don't worry, it happens sometimes! The Curly-haired Sea AnimalHere's the "Coral Kennel" 15:08, 22 April 2021 (UTC)

Lewis Hamilton[edit]

I’ve nominated RW:Articles for deletion/Lewis Hamilton for deletion. Christopher (talk) 14:42, 7 February 2021 (UTC)

I have looked at what you said and, while I wrote the page mostly to document the slander against him, it does fall into the category of unnecessary, especially when there are other places to find answer to such questions. Hope that's all okay now. The Curly-haired Sea AnimalHere's the "Coral Kennel" 14:53, 7 February 2021 (GMT)

Sadomasochistic Congresspeople[edit]

Should’ve notified you at the time and you’ve probably seen it in recent changes by now, but it looks like it’s gonna get deleted. If you wanted it kept you could move it back to essayspace, although your recent addition to your user page about you having a habit of making unnecessary articles suggests you have seen it in recent changes and aren’t too attached.

This is the second article of yours I’ve nominated for deletion now, but I don’t want you to think I’ve got some grudge against you, you’ve written a lot of good on-mission stuff, whereas I’ve probably never written more than a few paragraphs despite being the most active editor on the site back in 2017. Christopher (talk) 17:38, 4 March 2021 (UTC)

Yeah, that's a correct observation. I don't mind it being deleted. I just think I have a seriously bad habit of overspeculation, especially regarding current political climates, which leads me to make articles that just are not necessary in the long run. Hence, I've decided to move back to what I am generally better at, which is making articles on past figures.
And don't worry about it, it's okay :) Both articles were not missionally relevant, so its not as if there wasn't a valid reason to vaporise them The Curly-haired Sea AnimalHere's the "Coral Kennel"

Your user page[edit]
